CO" The Presidency. Tho following- Cotnmttnica
tion is from a gentleman cf as high f landing as any in
western North Carolina, one who has borne a promi
nent p-!it in the Presidential contests fur the pas-l I'Z
years, at.d withal a ood old Republican of the Jeflerso
nian School.
We most fully agree with cur correspondent, that the
Iriends of correct ptinciples, aad those w!io are opposed
to the corruptions practised by the party in power f-r
the past nine years, ought not to sutler slight differences
;f opinion to divide them, by which their enemies will
Ji3xtLlpj)MtIUtja'JCTcrences with our neighbor
have been of no trifling nature he has taken occasion
to assail, repeatedly, the principles and men of a small
party to which we are proud to belong, without the
magnanimity to do us even common justice it was for
euch a course that we have been forced into a contro
versy with the Watchman. lLit where we can
meet on a common ground, as we think we can
on that suggested by our otcernrd correspondent,
we offer our neighbor our hand we ro for
Union in resisting the encroachments of the Fede
ral Government on the rights of the States, wheth
er originating with the Executive or with Con
gress; for organizing our strength in the coming
Presidential contest to effect a Reform of the ex
travagances of the past eight years, and to fortify
the South against the inroads of abolition fanaticism.
Wc go too, as our correspondent says, for placing
cur Ood old unassuming State on high ground,
ivlire her course and principles may be known, and
iv ill be respected. For these ends we go, if we go
;ith only 44 Solitary and Alone."
To the Editor of tiik Caroiixian:
Sia : I am a subset iber to your paper, and also to the
Watchman-and in common with you both, opposed to
the re-election of the present Chief Magistrate of the
United States. I believe he went into the Executive
Chair through a rent in the Constitution, and at the
fame time treading- under foot, the purity of the elec
tive franchise. If experience is of any value, the op
position should have learned to cherish union and to
avoid division. Permit me, respectfully, to say to you
and the Watchman, that in my humble opinion, your
warfare is ill-timed and unprofitable. You should hus
band your strength and resources for the common ene
my, the day of trial. I wL-h to make n fow re
marks wilh regard to ihe course of" the Watchman, on
the subject of the next Presidency I know he will
receive them in the fame, spirit in which they are made.
They are net intended to provoke discussion, but solely
witn a view to aid a common cause. The Watchman
Jus the Clay flag half unfurled In his paper of DJlh
instant, he remaiks 44 we have watched with eager
anxiety the demonstrations of ihc two parties in the
various quarters of the nation, and we are perfectly
a'.ined that the next contest fjr this high office (the
Presidency) will be between Mr. Van Buren and Mr.
Clay." In the same article is contained the following
expression of the Watchman's opinion " Wc believe
cj fir as the western part of North Carolina is concern
ed, he will receive ihe support of the Whig party."
The pignof the times have been noticed by the writer;
Jt :s true, he may not be as well qualified as the Watch
man to read the-.n, and then to dcclire cr ming even??.
I diCer from our neighbor First, it appears to me not
quite certain, that Mr. Van Uuren will be h. candidate,
et on the contrary most probable ho will not. Where
is Mr. Van Baren's strength ! He never had a hold on
Ihe affections of the people. Is bis strength in the
Kew England Stales! Is it in the Middle States! Is
it in the North-West ! Is it in New York! Where
' is his Loj al House of Ommons ! I Ic has had his extra
Session ; thus fur lie has had the regular Session of the
20th Congress What great measure has he carried ?
In the second place, 1 am of the opinion the Watch-
'rnan has made a wrong estimate of the present strength
of Mr. Clay in the West of our State The Watchman J very high term-. Mr. Word declined speaking. Wise
will admit, that from the time Gen'!. Jackson became , nn lGhnlson had quite a personal and undignified aller
a candidate up to this moment.he has had great strength 1 cation while discussing this question on the IGth -dt.,
in the Western part of North Carolina. The original . which it was at first thought must result in a duel; but

January d,
CCr Abolition the r.iinn.Thn Hon. R. R. Rhetf,
of S. Carolina, has come out in a Card in the Wash
ington papfr.-, ad J rested to his ccn.-titucr.ti-, c.xpluinin
and deter.din certain lanuae u.sed by.him in a letter
to the DJitor of the Charleston Mercury, written eoon
aller t!ie meeting of the Southern members of Congres-s
at the Capitol in Washington on the abolition question.
In our next, wc will publish this Card, and therefore,
will now only glance at its purport.
Mr. Illicit, it pectus, had prepared Resolution; to in
troduce as a substitute for the Resolutions of the fanatic
Sladc, for abolishing Slavery in the District of Colum
bia : these I'c?olutions were not clTercd by Mr. Ithett,
but their sutatancc t-tated to the KJitorof the Mercury,
and thus having drawn forth various comments from
northern papers, Mr. II has seen fit to coma out in
their defence. The Resolutions are as follows :
"and the Constitution of the United States
having proved inaderiate to protect the southern Slates
in the peaceable enjoyment of their rights and proper
ty, it h expedient that the said Constitution sh.iuld be
amended, or the Union of the Slates dissolved.
" licsohcJ, That n Committee of two members from
each State in tiie Union, be appointed V report upon
the expediency or practicability of amending t.'ie Con-
-r , i.ij, .liiidl-.iricr the
These are very strong Resolutions indeed, and it is
probably well they vvere not offered at the time they
were prepared, as the state of excitement amor. the
members was such, that much mischief might have been
done thereby. But they embrace the tri e groi nd for
the South the ground which she will be til'.irnately
compelled to takc, or fjive up her vital spark, and we
do not see why the position mi;rhl not us well Li: taken
one time as another. We have so olen e.xprecred our
convictions of the duty cf wiuthcrn men on thi.1; ques
tion, that it is needless almost to repeat them. We
have ever believed that any petition or memorial pray
ing the abolition of slavery in any section of this Union
ought in no case to be received by Conn-rcsj : it is a
question over which Congress has no i o.ntkol, and one
which it ought not to touch, and as soon as a majority
of that body decided to receive petitions praying for a
violation of the term3 of the Union, of the Constitution,
an l the personal rights of the citizen, then the soulurn
membrrs at least, should have adopted the Resolutions
of Mr. Rlrdt. If we enj y our slave property at all,
wc must do it jiiacrahlij, without interference from any
quarter but we must enjoy it, and we will the terms
are laid down in the Constitution ; if we cannot hM
our northern Irethcrn to observe these term, tho quick
er a dissolution is had, the better for u. These are
onr view?, and wc believe they correspond with the
views of a majority cf the thinking- men of the South.
CO" SuL-Treasitry lull. On oer first pae will be
fiund the Bill reported by the Finance Committee to
the Senate of Congress, ft)r reorganizing the Treasury
Department to perform the duties of a Tscal arrcr.t to
the Government, called the Sub-Treasury Bill. There
has as 3'ct, we believe, been no discussion on this Bill;
it is given j tst as repc-rted from the Committee. Should
it pass it will of course undergo modification.
We have had time to examine the Bill only ptrtially ;
but a hasty perusal Ins discovered to our mini ?eri us
objections to this Bdl not to be found even in that re
ported to the extra session. The two pmpnitions arc
widely dilTercnt in their features, and until we see the
present in the shape in which its friends c::pect it to
pass Congress, wc will pass it over in silence. Certain
it is, the Bill in its present shape will never lea law.
Cyncrress. Although wc devote much cf our space
weekly to reports of the proceedings of Congress, yet
wc are able to give but a skeleton of the exiting and
animatetl, and even .angry debates which have occurred
in lhat body. The debates on Mr. Calhoun's Resolu
tions were of marked ability and great interest; some
of the speeches we intend publishing heretdter. The
debate on the Mississippi Contested Election thus far
has been characterised with much ability, and a good
deal of warmth. The speech of Mr. Prentiss defend
ing the claim of himself and Mr. Word to the seats oc
cupied by Claiborne and Gholson, lies been spoken of in
Imrne and Gholson will hold their seats, in defiance cf
law and the expressed will of the people of Mississip-
pi. But if so, it will he a finishing stroke to the party
in Mississippi.
As will be seen cn rcfeience to our report, the Com
mittee of Ways and Means have reported a Bill mak
ing a special appropriation of l,000,U00 for carrying
on the Florida war. The bill was passed almost unan
imously, without nny other opposition than that of Mr.
Wise, wha seems to take a pride in opposing all appro
priations, whether necessary or no for the public safety.
'Ve admire tho inrlopcndence and bold dating of
Mr. Wise, and we appreciate his patriotism but

gentleman, who is an honor to our State, was indicited
at the last term of Guilford Superior Court, for issuing

the Supreme Court, where the judgment below has
been reversed, and a new trial ordered.

on the west end of the village tearing up by the
roots large poplar and other trees levelling with
the earih a stable and two corn-cribs, the proper
ty of Dan!. Arnold, Esq., and prostrating several
small buildings of Mr. Isaac Cook. It then pass
ed iu a t! reel line to Capt. John Wright's now sta
ble, a very lare frame building, and literally tore
it to pieces. It then took through a small skirt of
woods, which it uprooted thence, to an opeu space
where it concentrated its fury on a bouse belonging
to me, occupied by Capts. Maxwell and Nesbitt.
The house was of hewn logs, weatherboarded and
ceiled, with staunch upper and lower floors, and a
substantial brick chimney all of which were com
pletely demolished, the sills even, lieing moved se
veral feet. Capt. Nesbitt's family, consisting of
hia wife and four small children, were huddled up
in one corner of the building, aud strange to say,
escaped unhurt !
As far as I have heard, no lives are lost. One
of Capt. Wright's negro men is badly hurt, but not
dangerously, it is thought.
The Storm lifted a four horse Waggon, carried
it son e distance, set it down upon, and broke a fence
without up.-etmg the aggon.
"As it was near night when the Storm cccured, and
the Mail leaves before day, I am not able to give

We learn that on the requisition f tho United
States District Attorney for this district, two hun
dred men have been drafted in this city by order of
the Governor, for the purpose of aiding the federal
authorities in executing the laws of the United
States, passed to preserve peace and neutrality with
foreign nations.
The object which the authorities of the General
Government have in view, we understand, is to ar
rest or disperse the force which is understood to
have collected on Friday night, if they are found
organized or embodied on American soil for hostile
prepcratioi.s against Canada.
