Gen. Dockery on the Standard.—The
coniraunication on the preceding page, from Gen.
Dockery, will arrest the attention of all readers.
It exposes the motives of tlie Standard's attacks
on him—(a deaire to make political capital for
future campaigns in the West)—and the means
by which the Western people were disappointed
in their desires.
The last Standard re affirms that “Gen. Dock
ery is responsible for the defeat of Mr. Avery’s
bill ” We are inclined to think that the Stan
dard will eventually come to believe this to be
80, for it is said that men sometimes tell stories
80 often as finally to believe them true. It will
take a great deal, however, to make even the
Standard believe its own tale, that in a body of
fifty men, ojie man is responaible for the action
of the whole, and two-thirds of the fifty opposed
to him at that.
This morning we have received an additional
communication from Gen. Dockery, noticing nn
article in the Warrenton Xews; but it is impos
sible to put it In type in time for to-day’s paper.
It shall appear on Thursday.
The Rev'. Dr, Hawks—We learn from the
Raleigh Register that this eminent North Caro
linian has consented to deliver an Address at Ox
ford, on the *24th June next, on the occasion of
the completion of St. John’s College. The fact
gives us an opportunity to copy from a Uost.)n
paper %n account of some Lectures recently de
livered in New York by Dr. Hawks. This ac
count is stated to have been written by a gentle
man who stands in the first rank of American
literati—one well known to fame as an author.
The amount of mental labor which one man
can undergo, and the extent of knowledge which
one mind can compass, are strongly illustrated by
Dr. Hawks. Amidst ministerial labors which
are generally regarded as enough for any one
man, he has seemed to devote all of man’s powers
to historical research; and then again he is dis
tinguished among the most eminent and working
members of several Literary Societies; the author
of books on various subjects; and here we find
that he has been devoting years of study to
American Ethnology—to the races of men who
peopled this continent centuries before the Chris
It is pleasant to connect the name and fume
of such a man with North Carolina, and to know,
as we have for years had opportunity to know,
that his thoughts are ever turned to her, his de-
aires ever for her honor and prosperity; and that,
whether he writes and prints at his own cost a
great scheme of internal imorovement for her, or
the plan of a Polytechnic School for her—each
in advance of the age of her Legislators—or whe
ther be devotes years of labor and a large amount
of means not over abundant, to the collection of
materials for her History, that personal emolu
ment has been the least of all t ie considerations
weighing on his mind, and affection for her the
main spring of all his labors. Our readers will
see from this Boston letter iu what estimation he
is held among strangers in New York.
Correction.—B. F. Little, Esq., member of
the House of Commons from Richmond county,
calls our attention to an error in our reported
proceedings of that House, in the Observer ot
the 9th inst., in which a proposed amendment to
the Deep River bill is attributed to him. The
amendment was, “that no farther appropriation
ever be made to said work.” He says that such
an amendment was offered by some member and
afterwards vvithdrawn; but that for him'cif he
offered no amendment, but contented hiiuselt
with voting against the main bill.
We had occasion once before to correct a simi
lar error of our regular Reporter, evidently grow
ing out of a similarity of names.
Battle of Moore’s Creek—The celebration
on Friday last was largely attended by visiters
from Cumberland, Jones, Lenoir, Duplin, Samp
son, Bladen, Columbus, Brunswick and New
Hanover Counties. The number is variously
estimated. The Herald thinks about 2,500;
others estimated it as low as 1,500, and as high
as 4,000. The occasion is spoken of by the
Herald al a very pleasant one, and the address

sense, may be a mooted question. But no man ^his affair grew out of the following, which
other day’s session, was made to get up the river
and harbor bills, and particularly the bill to make
a further appropriation for the improvement of
the Cape Fear, below Wilmington. The object
was to pass these or defeat the regular appropri
ation bills, and to prevent the trial of the cor-
I ruption cases; and the chief actor in the movement
was Mr. Washburne of Illinois, (free soiler.)
But the attempt was unsuccessful, for on Thurs
day, the House, under the operation of the previous
can deny that “internal improvement” was an un
known word in the political vocabulary of North
Carolina, until Democracy, like Jack the Giant ;
Killer, extirpated the race of old-time giants,
whose absence in the legislative halls our contem
porary 80 pathetically deplores.
“If these regret:ed “intellectual giants” had
exhibited one-half of the public spirit of their
successors in the Legislature, the grass would not
now be growing in the once busy streets of a
certain locality. But fogyism cannot see this,
or would not see it if it could.”
The allusion here is of course to an articlc in
the Observer of the 19th ult., iu which the
names of some of the great men who figured in
the Legislatures in former years were mentioned,
in comparison with the body of great men who
recently spent some two or three months and fifty
thousand dollars of the State’s money in Raleigh.
It is certainly refreshing to see a paper printed
in Warren county claiming for the democratic
party all the hcnor of internal improvements in
North Carolina—Warren county, in which un
mitigated democracy abounds, in the proportion
of about seven democrats to one whig. Will any
body be kind enough to point to a vote ever given
by a member of the Legislature from Warren
county in favor of any measure of Internal Im
provements? Or to any similar vote of any
member from its equally democratic neighbors,
Nash and Edgecombe? We puuse fora reply.
Also, we would like to be informed what the
Legislature of 1842—the Terrapin Legisla
ture— which was decidedly deiuocratic, did tor
internal improvemeul,'? And wLiat the late dem
ocratic Legislature di 1? E'puciully what it did
for the removal of the grass troin “the once busy
streets of a certain locality”? If internal im
provements had rem iiued .111 uuknowu word until
democracy coined it, it would never have appeared
in the vocabulary of North Caroliua.
But let us see what party ruled North Caro
lina during the years when, according to the
we find in the Union’s report of the proceedings
Mr. S. said: I find in the Globe of this morn
ing the following, as having been said in the
midst of my remarks on the Kansas amendment:
“Mr. Wright, of Tennessee, (in his seat, in a
low tone of voice:) That’s a lie.”
I wish now that the gentleman from Tennessee
may say whatever he desires to .say with regard
to that remark; whether he is or is not correctly
reported, and whether he did use the language
attributed to him.
Mr. Wright, of Teunessee. Mr. Speaker, in
using the language which I am reported to have
used yesterday in regard to the statement made
by the member from Ohio, I meant no disrespect
to this House. I believed at the time and 1 now
believe, that the statement made by that gentle
man was untrue. I have no more to say.
Mr. Sherman I have, under the circumstances,
but little to say. This remark was made in so
low a tone of voice that it was not and could not
be heard iu this part of the House. Whether
this was intentional or not is for the House to
judge. Before I was informed of what was said,
the member left the House. From what I could
learn, I believed it was the language of black
guardism, induced by excitement and intoxica

to call forth from him a manly retraction. I do
not tliink he has stated enough for that purpose.

be expected to bandy epithets with the gentle-

on Tuesday evening by the citizens of Mont- j

ral speeches were made on the occasion by the
following gentlemen, to wit: Dr. J. M. Crump, |
A. R. Kelly, S. H. Christian, and A. K. Me- i
Donald, Esq., setting forth in a very forcible
manner the utility and practicability of this
Road, &c., after which the meeting appointed a
large number of delegates to a contemplated con
vention to be held at Cheraw, S. C., on the first
day of April next, to take into consideration the
building of the Road.
We have no doubt but that this Road will be
built, and will prove a benefit to the State and
more particulary to this part of the State.
Legislative Bulls.—Other Legislatures be
sides our own occasionally make ludicrous mis
takes. A Virginia lawyer once taunted a Penn
sylvania Judge with an expression in an Act of
the Pennsylvania Legislature, “that the State-
house yard should be surrounded by a brick wall,
and remain an open enclosure for ever.” The
Pennsylvanian rather got the better of the F. F.

They are a tine looking body of men, numbering

went through the military lactics with a preci

of all who witnessed them. Previous to their

claim for democracy the credit of the internal im

the last five or six years that a democrat could be
found who did not charge the system upon the
Whigs as a reproach.
It is very certain that all democrats, either
young or old, do not concur with the Warreuton
News in its estimate of the character of the late
democratic Legislature; for not only do young
and old speak of it as a body with contempt, but
the venerable gentleman whose opinion led to
our comparative view, is himself a democrat.
But then he has mind enough to form a sensible
opinion on that or any other subject.
We have never said, nor thought, that “the
men of the present day are pigmies.” In the
very article on which the News comments, we
said directly the reverse. But it suits the hontst
purposes of democracy, as represented by »his one
of its organs, to attribute such a sentiment to us,
whilst taking care to suppress what we did say.

Gilbert having resigned, and being no longer

The House next took up the Matteson case, and
a letter was read from him, stating that he had

was rejected, 108 to 83. The two resolutions
affirming his guilt were then adopted, 145 to 17.
And the third, to expel him, was laid on the table.
