FEDERAL WiyiJGERV UN MASKED.
The Republican of North Carolina who were
last summer cheated into die aupport nf, Whiggery
by lite cunuirf) proiniae and doceitfut profesaiona'
of Federalinn, must by Ibis lime we think, begin '
lo open their eyes a little, to the true character nf
hard cider " rcforiucra.'' We laat week called the
reader's attention to the demiaiatration of Federal
policy, made by this rcf irm " party of our Legia. ,

bution of the proceed of Ihe Public Laqd, nti,

if carried oul, tanet inevltahly impose epue) th
people of North Carolina, a burden of heavy taxa. '
lion, lo pay for the txlravjaganr of other States.
The report nf prce-diu,! on tbeir passage, wbicti '
we puhliihed, did nnt contain a very important
amenduieni nflcred by Mr. Card well. We Cad H
reported in the laat Standard as follnaaj " " '
