NORTH CAROLINA SENTINEL, AND NEWBERN COMMERCIAL, AGRICULTURAL AND LITERARY rNTELLIGlN6fil.
, NEWBERN :
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1831.
IMPORTANT FROM EUROPE.
The ehip Sampson, at New York, brings London
i and Liverpool papers of the 4th and 5th of August.
They contain highly important news. The Poles
'have' again been victorious; 14,000 prisoners, and
80 peices of artillery are trophies of their valour. In
a letter of the celebrated Correspondent of the London
Morning Chronicle, It is stated that on the last of the
" Three Days " a report was made to the citizens of
Pari.s, said to have come fern the King, that the Poles
had killed 16,000, Russians, taken 15,000 prisoners,
. and frbm 50 to 80S cannon. From 10 o'clock in the
morning, at which , time these tidings .were circula
te. I, till one the succeeding morning, nothing was to
be heard but songs of triumph, and joy. .
Anxious as we are for the success of Poland, we
inu'at yet receive these1 reports .with hesitation: all
things considered they "appear almost incredible.
-XVe greatlyear that the nations that have the means
of averting the fate of this brave people will stand -a-
! l;oof,- and like the, 120,000 who were-under arms when
M y -r f -11 ' . ..''Til M !
the news reacneu raris,: win rena tne airjtvim accla
mations of joy when. they hear of a victory,' Ibid their
? arms in apathy as soon as the momentary excitement
passes away, and think no more of the poor Poles till
q return of similar tidings, or, what is still more likely,
till they hear of their utter annihilation. If France
.iinl -England have the feelings for which we give
theb credit, the adherence of Prussia to the Russian
I fause will be beneficial to Poland ; but if they- trifle
away the time of action in useless diplomacy,- and
leaye the Poles to perish under the superior powec of
,the(r ruthless invaders, they willhave placed a blot on
.theiiinatipnal character which will be as lasting as it
will be disgraceful. : - ;
The affairs of Be.1 :rium are in: a fair way of amica
ble adjustment. Pi ince Leopold has accepted the
Armvn, the 1 Belgians having acceded to the stipula
tions on which his acceptance had been made to de
pend. ; We publish to-day the speech of. Leopold to
his new subjects. All discontent seems to have va
niehieilj and an amalgamation of parties has taken
place, which .must be beneficial to the interests of the
country. . . ? '
Irt Trance, at our last accounts, till was festivity I
and 'joy. Tlie. celebration of the " Three Da vs" had
i taken place, and had passed in peace, and good fr?l-

lie approximating tb those of the people. We
publish the speech of the King, to the Chamber of
Deputies, which will be found interesting.
The. tvrant- Don Mitruel, has been brought to his
senses by the armament which France sent for that
- purpose. . The particulars will be found in another
! column. We rejoice thaUie has been chastised.
It appears that the evacuation of Romftgna by the
.1 Ausiirians, has been the Signal for revolution. The
. Pontfficial authority is disregarded by all classes; the
taxes are unpaid, and the organs of the government
"u;e utterly contemned. The Papal troops desert by
companies, and refuse to fight against their fellow
' ; citizens. The people, it seems, are every where de-:-
terrriiried to govern themselves. They tiave eubmit
ted. too long to the curb and the . spur of oppression,
and are become ashamed of their submission. The
reign of reason has commenced, and the . " divine
right of Kings" is a subject for laughter. A few
years will make a wonderful change in the aspect of
European affairs and almost any change must be
Wc "cop v from the Richmond Whig, a more cir-1;
cunistantial account of the horrors of the late insur-
in Vircrinfa, than we were able to give in our :

a volunteer, and his statements may therefore be con
sidered authentic. This abortive' attempt of these!

go beyond, the raufder of a few defenceless women
. und children, whomay fall in their way in thinly
j peopled sections of the country; but they should be a-
Vare that tlie vengeance which will surely follow such
dastardly barbarity will be deep and dreadful ! The
$act that has just transpired is sufficient to convince
them of this. . The neighborhood which thev chose
lor the scene of their attfocities, was wrapt in unsus- j
Pectmg security, sparee in population,' and utterly
provided for any thing approaching to systematic de
fence ; and yet, with all' these disadvantages, what is
the result? Upwards of a hundred of the wretched
assassins have been shot and mangled, and thus hur
ried unprepared to the presence of an offended God,
to account fortheir deeds of blood thirsty cruelty,
tthile forty or fifty more will inevitably expiate, on
c gallows, this outrage on humanity and on the
aws tnG country. Lamentable as these conse
quencee; are, they are but a small part of the penalty
acurred by this insurrection.; Masters who are na-
turally kind and humane will hereafter distrust their

for a moment belieVe that they are ; able to contend
with their superiors. "A few ignorant wretches, to

ing it, niust be devoid of rationality to place them
selves in opposition to hundreds of thousands of intel
ligent,'high minded men, well disciplined, and ready
at a moment's warning to sweep them from the face
of the earth. We see no cause for concealment : evr
eryrnan should be prepared, not only to defend his
family and his fireside from the inroads of the murder
er, but also to deal to the abandoned instigators of
these hellish conspiracies a retribution so salutary,
and at thejsame time so awful, that the very recollec
tion should forever hereafter deter others from enga
ging in such fruitless and dangerous attempts.
Georgia and South Carolina papers , speak of the
calamitous effects of the late" heavy and continued
rains which have deluged the low grounds, and done
immense injury to the! crops; At Augusta the Sa
vannah had risen 31 feet above low-water mark.
One half of the fine bridge across the Wateree, at
Camden, was swept away, and the bridge over the
Great Pedee at Cher.w, had shared the same fate..
The W'nyaw Intelligencer states that " one individ
ual has lost a crop of from 15 to 20 thousand bushels
of corn." The Camden Journal says : " The indivi
dual loss sustained by some gentlemen fn this neigh
bourhood cannot be less than thirty thousand dollars."
" A reat many of our Planters have suffered a total
loss of their whole. crops; men who, one week ago,
could boast -of making from two to five hundred bales
of cotton, and frofr? three to four thousand bushels of
corn, wilj now scarcely make a bale of the former or
save a bushel of the latter." , This is truly a lament
able account, and we fear that the half is not yet told,
as many of the low i Istricts remain o be heard f rom .
The following, which we copy fromKhe Fayetteville.
Observer, brings the calamity nearer to our own
nei ffhbourhobd .
The Freshet. We have copied from other
papers, some account of the destructive effects
of the late extraordinary freshet in the States
of South Carolina and Georgia! Our own State
has come in for its. share of the losses, though
not to such a disastrous extent as her neigh
bours. We learn that Haw river, the north
ern branch of the Cape Fear, has been very
high and that much damage has been done to
Mill Dams, and low grounds. We have not
heard particulars, except that Judge Ruflin's
dam, (formerly Judge Murpbey's is entirely
swept away. ' a
The low grounds Bladen, in where we anti
cipated much mischief, have, we are happy to
learn, escaped material injury.
A letter from a friend in the upper part of
Richmond County, informs us that the Pedee
has swept away Mills, Crops, fcc, in that
neighbouhood, to an extent surpassing the re-,
collection of the oldest inhabitants " Farm-
ers who were almost in the very act of gath
ering in their year's labor, had the mortifica
tion of seeing the whole of their dependence
blasted in one day's time. Owing to. the situ
ation; of the corn, which was just ripening and
the water lying over it several days, will cause
it when the sun shines out, to rot. Not only
crops, but hogs, cattle, 'sheep horses, were
drowned: the farmers not suspecting such a
j freshet, took no pains secure them."
The same letter informs us of the melancho
ly death, by drowning, of Mr. Wm. Randall,
son of Mr. Wiatt Randall, of Montgomery
county, a young man of very respectable con
nections, who had been married only three
months before, and who bid fair to become a
valuable member of society. He was drown
ed whilst endeavoring to drive the Stock on
his farm to a place of security.
A meeting of American Citizens favourable to
Poland, and the cause for which she contends, was
held in Paris,ion the 9th of July, at which the celer
brated James Fennimore Cooper presided, and Dr.

dress to the American JPeople to our next.
KingXeopold I. of Belgium has already announced
his intention of marrying the Prineess Marie of
France. Arrangements are being made for the cere
mony. ' s
It' was rumoured-, in London that the Emperor
Nicholas had fallen a victim to cholera : later accounts
discredit the report. -
A shocking outrage was lately committed, in Gran
ville County, in this State, by.Mrf Potter, a member
of Congress, on two respectable citizens of that Coun
ty, whose names we have been unable to learn. It
appears that the poison of Othello's peace had taken
possession of Mr. Potter's brain, and, it is believed, on
as slight grounds. Instead, however, of following the
unmanly revenge of the Blackamoor, and dying his
un-'hands with the blood of his gentle Desdemona , he
mustered all the savageness of his nature, sought a
suitable opportunity, pounced ' upon the suspected
paramours, and with a slip-noose, already prepared,
caught them as they do wild cattle on the pampas of
Buenos Ay res, and with a, sharp knife and a steady
harid,reduced them in a twinkling to the conditon of Ori
gen. The transaction is still more creditable to the
honorable member when we consider that the one is
a lad in his teens, the other a venerable minister of
the gospel, of nearly sixty.
We transfer to our columns a lamentable account
of the horror and desolation caused by the late hurri
cane in the island of Barbadoes. We hope that the
pecuniary aid which our fellow-citizens intend to
send to Poland, will be transmitted to these unhappy
sufferers, our more immediate neighbours. We know
that in this case it would alleviate the sufferings of the
survivors; and we entertan serious doubts whether
equal benefit would, now at the eleventh hour, result
from itsr transmission to Poland.
A company of United States' Light Artillery
embarked at Norfolk, for this place, on Satur

trencn Veary Simon Draper, Esar. of this
city, passenger in the ship Formosa, Capfc Orme, ar
rived on Tuesday evening, is bearer of Despatches
irom Air. mves, to our Government. Amnncr thn
despatches is the Treaty lately concluded with the
French Government by our Minister at Paris. An
article appareoTin the Journal du Havre of 5th July
on the subject of this treaty, which is not only prema
ture an 1 unauthorized but incorrect in many of its
details.-We learn by Mr. Draper who obtained his
information from Mr. Rives that the amount of
claims to be paid by France for sixilations of Ameri
can property, is twenty-five millions of francs, paya
ble m six, equal yearly instalments, with interest at
the rate of 4 per cent per annum, irom the date of the
treaty being, ra ified by our government, which in
terest will swell the amount to about twenty eio-ht
millions five hundred thousand franc.
Mr. Rives has stipulated on. behalf of our govern
ment, the payment of one million five, hundr th
sand trance in settlement of Bea.umarch.ais' claims.
that wines (white and red) shall be admitted in
our country on the following terms :
Wines in bottles, shall pay 20 ehts, in place of 30.
u in casks, 10 ' in place of 15.
All other wines now paying 10 cents, shall be admit
ted at 6 cents duty.
The French government on their part, stipulate to
relinquish all the Louisiana claims. That American
long staple cotton shall be admitted at 20 francs per
100. kil. (the same duty as short staple pays) in place
of 40 francs, as now charged.
We have yet no positive information as to the clas
ses of claims that are admitted, and therefore prefer
not to touch upon the subject, though we are well
aware that much anxiety pre vails on this head. Mr
Draper proceeds to Washington with his despatches
this morning, and in a few days the whole particulars
of the treaty will doubtless be published..

in the Raleigh Star of the 8th inst. by Meritt Dilliard
from Mr. Fowler to him, was written by me at hia

or what I intended to write. - '

In relation to his extract from Mr. Gildersleeve's

As to the manner inhich the Bill of Sale was
obtained and for what purposes, Mr! Gildersleeve's
certmcatealready pubhsheS is conclusive ; the repu
tation of Ddhard being notoriously villanous, while
that ot Mr. Gildersleeve is, and has always been snot
less and above suspicion.
The last accusation is almost too puerile to deserve
notice.. He accuses me of appearing before the pub
lic "in " the fine feathers of another man's language."
As a specimen of the purity of his own diction, cor
rect spelling, uncommon fineness of feelings, and
above all, of his honest intentions, I have inserted
two of his letters, below. After having had $725 of
my money in hand upwards ol nineteen months
after having, as I can prove, harboured the nefirro.
that was lawfully mine after having with the deli
berate intention of defrauding me got possession of
the Bill of Sale, and after having conveyed away, his
property, to write me that because I attempted to get
the negro, " he would follow me within a inch of hell :"
" that 1 should never have him unless I stole him,"
and that it was in his power to make ", me lose the
whole oi the, money, as his concerns were in such a
way that it was as he pleased whether I got any
thing or not" I say, after all this baseness, can there
be lound a man, so meek and even tempered, that he
would hesitate to expose his villany, and attempt to
rescue his own reputation irom the malevolent assault
of such a wretch? Forced into this controversy
against.my inclination, I am resolved not to abandon
it, should further occasion arise to vindicate my .cha

IN THE Raleigh Star of the 8th inst., I perceive
art imputation cast on the truth of a certificate "
which I some time ago gave to Mr. William L. tow-
ler, respecting a transaction between him and Mr.
Meritt Dilliard of Raleigh, of which I was a witness.
To repel Mr. Dilliard's unfair insinuations, and to get.
theJmatter at rest, as far as I am concerned, I shall
briefly state the circumstances of the case as they
Mr. Fowler had purchased a negro slave from Mr
Dilliard, for whom he paid him $ 725. Owing to oc
currences which are not satisfactorily explained by
Mr. Dilliard, a misunderstanding arose between him
and Mr. Fowler, respecting the non-delivery of the
slave, according to contract. In the mean time the rfe-
i. j c- - n --3 T":il; .V
gro naa run away, oome ume auerwa.ru ixr. uiiuaru
came to Newbern, and believing that I was concerned
in the business, he entered into conversation with me
on the subject, and among other observations he re
marked, that it he had the Bill of Sale whjch he had
given to Mr. Fowler, to show to the friends of the ne
gro, he had no doubt that he would return home, and
he (Mr. D.) would be thereby enabled to deliver him
to the purchaser. r I observed in reply, that he could
create such a belief in his neighbourhood as well with
out the Bill of Sale as with it. He persisted, however,
in saying that he would not? be believed .unless he
could show it.' I replied then, that under this view
of the case I supposed Mr. Fowler would let him have"
it. Alter wards, on the same da v, m mv presence..
Mr. Fowlerdid deliver the Bill of Sale to Mr. Dilliard,
not cancelled, as he says, but solely for the avowed
purpose of decoying the negro, so that he might be
delivered according to contract.
There was nothing said, as far as I recollect about.
rptnrnin cr tht Vtill rtV Sp1p ? fnr it rrmlrl cmtpaI K
presumed that a person who appeared so anxious to
fulfil his contract could have any- sinister motive in
view ; and besides, Mr. Fowler held a bond of Mr.
Dilliard's for the fulfilment of the bargain, which lie
looked upon as ample security ; and even if he hai
suspected that Mr. Dilliard's motives were different
from his professions, it is very probable that he would
still have trussed him with the Bill of Sale, believing
that this bond offered sufficient indemnification, should,
Mr. Dilliard decline a compliance with his agreement.
Tho tonnr nf" oil TVTr rUlliawt'o imtxri vrnntaKlo - I
lusions to me, in his controversy with Mr. Fowler,
evinces a disposition to impress the public mind with
a belief that I am interested in the purchase of the
slave, and that all I say on the subject should therefore
pass for nothing. He appears extremely anxious tb
exempt me from all claims to honour and respecta'
bility. Had such insinuations come from a different
source. I might have thought it necessary to taRe
some notice or them : but as it is, I am perfectly wil
ling to let them pass with impunity. ' The name of
their author is more than sufficient to neutralize tlig.
effects which he intends to produce.
For the satisfaction of those who have read Hit.
Dilliard's accusation, I will state, that I have no in
terest whatever in the negroin question. Mr. Fowler
has frequently acted as my agent, but generally, with
out specificfirtstructions regarding the purchases which
he should make, or the persons with whom he should
deal. He is held responsible for all monevs that he
receives from me; .and until he returns them, or what
I may be willing to receive as their value, he stanch;
between him and Mr. Dilliard was no exception to
this course. SevU 14th 1831.
