DESTRUCTION OPTHE BRANCH MINT
ti - BY FIRE. m
It is bur melancholy duty to have to announce
to the public , the destruction of the U. S. Branch
'Mint in this ; plaoe by fire, on Saturday morning
last The fire when first discovered was een to
proceed from the upper story of the western wing
in the room where the coming presses were kept,
andin which, as We learn from some of the work
men, no firs had been for at least ten days before
the accident '; and we learn from some of those
first at the fire that nothing but about 8 feet of
the floor had been burnt and had water been han
dy it might have been easily extinguished, but
the air being admitted the flamer rapidly spread
so that alt chance for its being saved was soon
gone.' What seemed strange to us was that as
there' were reservoirs no' effort was used asfar as
we could see to use the water that they contained,
and the n oner part of the buildinar seemed entire
ly resigned to the mere v of tbe flames ; and it
does seem to us that if the attention or the peop.e
had been directed by some of the workmen early
to the reservoir nearly' above the fire a different
result might have been the consequence, now
the fire originated ia involved in mysterv. Some
allege that as a number of students were about
ine Duiiaing emoKingon tne evening neiore, uiat
it may have occurred from a lighted segar being
thrown in an exposed situation others again say
that a segar would not set any thing on fire.
J here is one tmng certain, the buiraing on the
night before the fire was left entirely alone, and
if there was any one in the community so lost to
every feeling of honor as to desire its destruction,
that tbey bad every opportunity, if they could gain
aumiuaiice, oi carrying jneir meanness into exe
cution. Mr. CiJdweli. the Siiperlntendeat, was

it is well known not only that the foreign
importations so far exceeded, th exportf as
to create a ruinous vbaiancc of trade against
us, but that owing Jo the Jow dutej
ditTon'to'tbFusua g9s brought in,
large quantieS of articles made by mechanK
cal labor begaji alsqlcbe imported, and that
kind of busffiess.,aVfi$crlsjnjB; so rapidly that
hadit noi been stopped by Vbe tariff bCli342,
it would soon have proved a vast injury, if
not u tie r ly - tu i nous, to; a " large portion of
American mechanic. ; I
from Etfglandlliat. clid 'ot bring as a portion
of her cargn, a targe 'quanSily, of London
made Iiats. French cahinM furniture began
also to come alinosfby the cargo, but aniong
the .'chief mechanical artfeies were French
boots' and shoes, and ready made clothing.
All Who bad occasion to visit our large
cities in thosa t i ines, 'Could -se6 in e Very
quarter, signs upon showing shops filled with
French boots and shoes, ftnd the ready rnadet
clothing brought from London could also be
found almost as easily But we wish to call
attention of shoemakers and tailors, especial
ly the journeymen, to two simple facts, which
we noticed, particularly at the time.'' A sin.
gle ship that arrived in the sprjhg.of 1842,
before the Whj tariff was passed, tirought
sixteen thousand pairs of Paris made boots
and shoes, which were at once thrown into
ourharkets. It was also staled by the city
pa per?, .at the same .time, when orders were
constantly going to England for ready made
clothing,that by the steamship Great Western
in one. trip, there were sent measures to Lon
donjor 1200 full suits of clothes; to be made
to' OTder for New York and Philadelphia.
By the boots and shoes brought in the sin
gle cargo here, mentioned American jour,
nevtneu shoemakers were directly deprived
of patronage to the amount of at least 916,000
and more probably of 825,000, all of which
was as stf much cash taken directly from
their poekets. And in. reference to .the
clothes ordered in one. trip by tbe Great
Western tbcjourneymen tailors, to say no
thing of lliefr Employers,, were in like man
rt fist- .' . t '. i T i
nersunereraarrecuy iromuieirpocKeis in tne
loss of as much work, to the amount of .at
least $S0C0 casb, for the making of the 1200
coats alone would have amounted to 83,600
to them. And this, let it be understood,
was lost to American journeymen shoemakers
and tailorS, in but tiso instances, without re
ference to the hundreds of others, of similar
character, in the importation of ready made
clothing, hats cabinet furniture, die. to fill
up the shops in our large citis.
Now we wish our working men of all
classes, many of whom are doubtless still
acting with the locofoco party, would con.
siuer tnese tacts wen, ana tnen, ritnoui re
ference to past preferences, accoruing to the
dictutas of their own sober judgment, judge
which policy is 'best calculated to promote
their own interests and those of the country.
One single fact like thaf of the arrival of
16,000 pair of French boots and shoes in one
cargo, ia worth more to enable them to reach'
a correct conclusion than all the theories in i
tlte 'worrd. ' ' A'' journeyman shoemaker or
tailor, when he is discharged, and himself
and family suffering through bis want of em
ployment and because the articles upon
wbich.be works ara made in Paris or Loft-
don at prices below which he can possibly
make a decent living, does not want to'relad
ten columns about ' democracy ,w poor
raanV rights,, and bank," and so on, to
understand his position.. He sees at once,
4f he looks at the subject without prejudice,
tbat 'both his interests and his rights are
sacrificed througli.the bad policy of the gov
ernment, wlitch allows, foreigners to take
away his substance, depriving hint of the
patronage , to which he is entitled, t The
same rule applies to every branch of indus-
Sut, savs. a locofoco demagogue, anxious
to conceal the real issue Trom the jeople,,
what has all this to do with the. Presidential
election? We answer it has every thing to
do wiA, tf, aqd upon the settlement of that
question will depend entirely the protection
or prostration of A mericao industry, . Henry
Clay has always been tbe steady advocate
of that system, arid jf be is-elected it will
certainly be established during bis,adminis-
iration upon a oasis so arm mat ucari nev.

2. Polk is and always has been an avowed
opponent of, protection andean advocate of J
jfree trade and he is now supported, at. the
South solely, upop .that ground, as all. his
party .papers and meetings tsbow ; so that if
he is successful the protective system will
as certainly be put down There is no dis

When, in our paper of Tuesday: lastrwe fore-
bore to claim-a glorioue Whig victory in ;OTrT
eood old' State as honest-a land as'the San
ever shone on -it
from no fear that; h
would be indulging in premature exultation
We were as confident then, as now, of the tri
umpb of .Whig principles, but we wished to claim
no more than the record exhibited. But the re
turns -since received, warrant ua inpfbclaiming
to the Union; that
North Carolina Whig to thet core "
THAT SHE HAS ELECTED A WHIG
GOVERNOR 1 A WHIG SENATE,
AND A WHIG HOUSE OP
COMMONS ! ! t
And to do this, she has had to overcome a Loco
Foco majority in the last Legislature of TEN
in the Senate an'FOURTEEN in the Hoose.
But wbaf kHrTfcSegallant Whigs of North
Carolina cannot accomplish-t9t' not accomplish
f Hebt CxJkT and bis principles 1 She
was tbe first State in the Union to nominate
him for the Presidency, after the treachery of
TYLEJt-she bas since entertained him as her guest
and sink or swim, live or die her patriotic
sons are determined to give him her Electoral
vote for President ,
The value of this victory to tbe Whig cause,
throughout UieUaion,cannot be estimated.
Had North Carolina gone Jjpt the .Loco- Focos,
we verily believe it wouldhave inflicted a blow
upon Whig principles which, 'with all their re
cuperative energy,' it would have taken them
j-ears to recover from. Let, then, ihe efforts of
the Whigs f North Carolina, be duly apprew
ciated throughout tbe Union. Never, we Re
lieve, were more desperate exertions made by
any party, than by the Loco Focos of this State.
All their leading men were engaged in election-J
cering ; wagon Idlds of documenta were indued
triously circulated and every issue attempted,
that could influence a vote. Our only cause of
fear was, the verrpopub ebf-er p( tjteit
