The President, arrompnnied by the Vice Presi
jcllt I Secretary of the Navy, his Private Secre
rary an 1 Col. Earlo, arrived at Washington City on
the 4tl inst., after accomplishing a journey of 474
piles in three days. This hasty return wascaused by
increased indisposition arising from the warmth of the
weather, and so constant a routine of labour acting
upon a constitution which has braved many years
and much u hard service" in the cause of his coun
try. Our Washington City correspondent, under

Brown, in order to remove the impression which
may have been occasioned by a remark in the last
Spectator, requests us to state that he had on board
when the vessel put into Beaulbrt, an Engineer of
rcat skill and experience, and that an Engineer was
wot procured here to supply his incompetency but to
act, il necessary, under hisdirections. j The injury sus
tained by the machinery, proved upon examination to
be very inconsiderable, and the necessary repairs were
tioeedily effected, insomuch that she will this day
proceed for Charleston. It is to be hoped that this
slight iiiMrruption will be of no detriment to the repu
tation of the packet, for it is an evidence of that pru
dence and foresight in the prevention of danger,
which it would be well for all captains of steamboats
The transactions of the Convention summoned at
Raleigh, on the fourth, have reached us in time for
publication. It is" described as having been "the
most talented, respectable! and dignified body, ever
convened in N. Carolina." The utmost zeal and
harmony is said to have prevailed, and the resolu
tions which were adopted, are very vigorous and ap- !
propriate. The third resolution, which caused the
greatest litigation, must meet the cordial support of eve
ry true son of Carolina. "True policy certainly requires
that we should build up. markets in our own State."
As Ion:? as we are a State, in the true sense of the
word,"Mt -surety behoves us to look first to her exclu
sive prosperity, dignity and wealth. : One portion of
our fellow-citizens seem to think, that their welfare
is coupled with that of Virginia, and that the latter
State should be encouraged in her inroads into this.
No.one certainly can have any objection to the pros
perity of Virginia, or to promoting the combined wel
fare of the two neighbours ; but common sense and
'jound doctrine declare, that we should first look to
"our own household." So numerous and resectable
was this meeting of citizens, and so warm and disin
terested their zeal, that now,if ever,the legislature will
surely make some decided action, and by the meeting
?roj)osed to take place in November next, an irresisti
ble impulse will be given io their deliberations. Let
us hope that united exertions for the substantial im
provement f.f our common country, may supersede
the outcry tor convention.

From iheRaleisrh Register-
Internal Improvement Convention. In con
formity to the invitation previously given
through the public papers, a large number of
Delegates from various parts of the State, as
sembled in Convention, in this City, on the re
cent Anniversary of American Independence, to
take into consideration the subject of Internal
Improvement,' and to adopt such measures as
mitrhtbest promote its success. It may not
perhaps be going too far, to say, that it was the
most talented, respectable and dignified body,
ever convened in North Carolina for any pur
pose. Ample confirmation of the correctness
of this assertion, mav be found in the list of the
nplpunfes which we subioin. It is indeed, a
trulv"Watifviriff and animating circumstance,
to find that there is still so much of the spirit of
State pride and patriotism among us, as to
brintr together on such an occasion, and at so
short a notice, so large a numberofgentlemen,
nCllrt'prpni nolitieal' views, to consult and co-
operate for the public good. This fact alone
proves conclusively, that nothing is wanting
too-ive an impetus "to the cause of Internal Im
provement in the State, but the general preva
lence of a spirit of free enquiry, into our resour
ces and relative situation. To excite such z
spirit, was the great end and aim of the Conven
tion, and no one who witnessed the zeal, nay
the enthusiasm which pervaded that body, can
doubt that the design wMl be accomplished.
Having had the honor however to serve in
the Convention and desirous to create abroad
no false impressions as to its character or de
liberations, we prefer that the record of the
nroreedinTs should sneak for itself. The
Journal of the Convention therefore, shall be
given in detail to the public, in our next, but in
the mean time, we think it our duty to subjoin
a very brief account, of the most prominent
circumstances connected with it.
The Convention was organized at the Gov
ernment House, on the afternoon of the 4th, bv
the appointment of His Excellency, David L.
Swain, as President, and of Gen. S. F. Pat-
treson, of Wilkes, and Charles Manly, Esq, of

the President made an appropriate Address.

FOR THE SENTINEL.
To the Freemen of North Carolina.
Pruirnce indeed will dictate, that governments
long established should not be changed tor light and
transient causes. Declaration of Independence.
On the 18ih of December, 1776, a memorable vcar
in the history of our happy country, the representa
tives of the freemen of North Carolina, renowned for
the purity of their patriotism and motives, assembled
in Congress at Halifax, and formed our present ex
cellent Constitution. They were pure spirits, who
were then passing through the fiery ordeal ot our
Revolution, and knew well ho . to estimate the value
and worth of liberty; and equality of rights. These
men were uninfluenced by ambitious motives or per
sonal aggrandizement; and the sole object of all
their deliberations, was the happiness and welfare of
their it-How citizens. A Constitution iormed under
such circumstances,: and by men of such sterling
integrity, coulJ not tail to secure, to their electors, the
people, that uninterrupted happiness which we have
now enjoyed, under its benign influence for more
than half a century. But the spirit of innovation
and change has gone abroad, and it is now proposed
in "an Address on iamendiug the State Constitu
tion," to destroy tiie work of your forefathers, because
'the children ofthis -world are wiser in their genera
tion than the children of light."
Our State Constitution was the work of the united
deliberations ot the representatives of the whole
State; and the present subdivisions of counties, were
the esult of convenience and chance. The Eastern
part of the State possesses a larger number of small
counties, and a greater population of blacks ; the
Western section is comparatively poor, and contains
a small number of slaves, all the rich lands of North
Carolina are in the Eastern section.. If the premises
assumed by the author of the address, be granted,
the deductions which are drawn, fraught with so
much injustice and oppression must naturally fol
low. The great hue and crv, is that the East op
presses the West! This declaration appears to be
so perfectly puerile, that we should not here stop to
answer it, il the artificial argument contained in the
address, did not make out a case of seeming injustice.
Is the West separated from the East? Is it a pro
vince subject to the dominion of the East? Or is it
the larger portion of North Carolina? Who first
run this ideal line between the East and the West?
The East has had no hand in this business, but has
pursued the even tenor of its way, enjoying the bles
sings of our Constitution. The West modestly says to
the-East you have the larger number of representa
tives in the Legislature, and have used the power
which you have thus lawfully and constitutionally
acquired in a mild and merciful manner, but give us
the power now, by diminishing your number of re
presentatives, and we will tax your slaves and rich
lands up to the eyebrows, we go for the free white
men, and we will allpw you no voice in the councils
ol the State, lor your slaves, a large number ol us
of the West are opposed to slavery, and regard the
system as inconsistent with the rights of man.
The voice from the West, is clamorous in its de
mands ibr a Convention, because the "Representa
tion is unequal." Let us see. the plausibility of this
assertion. Desperate! cases require desperate reme
dies; and he who wants argument and truth on his
side, is very apt to appeal to the prejudices and pas
sions of our nature, i One of the causes which pro
duced the American Revolution,, was that the Colo
nies were taxed by the Mother Country (Great Bri
tain) in the British Parliament, and not allowed a
representative in Parliament. The Parliament sat
in London, upwards of three thousand miles from our
hsbury and the other from Hillsborouirh : whereas the 1
East sends five, viz: one from each of the towns of
Halifax, Edenton, Newbern, Wilmington and Fav-i
etteville Thua jt proposed to abridge the political j
power of the East, not because the Wost aHv
injured thereby, but because she is determined to se
cure that power to herself, and thus to treat the East
as her mood and fancy may suggest. Bear in mind
these towns are entitled each to one member by the
Constitution, and not by the power or influence of
the East, and that this Constitution was formed by
Wrestern as well as Eastern men. If this theu is op
pression, they must not blame the East, because it is
one in pat of their own manulacture. But it is no
oppression; on the contrary, much of the talent which
dignifies and adorns our legislation, comes from these
towns ; and old members will bear me out m saying,
that many has been the time, they have applied for
assistance from the superior attainments of the bo
rough members. We all know, that the borough
member represents distinct interests from those of the
county members, that th- one is a mercantile com
munity, atfd the other agricultural. The inequality
of representation seems to be the material grievance
unler which the West exclusively' suffers. The
other propositions of amendment to the Constitution,
become mere matters of expediency, and are not con
fined in their operation to any peculiar locality or
mieiebi. me question now submitted is, will you
surrender the power which vou lawfully and consti
tutionally possess, and jro into Convention to redress a
mere imaginary grievance. The mass of the people
in the West, know nothing of this pretended griev
ance; they live as happy as they ever didtheir soil
produces as well un ler the present Constitution, as it
would under the new fangled instrument which the
address wishes you to adopt nearly all the higher offi
ces of the State are filled by Western men7as they
generally have been, viz : the Governor, the two Se
nators in Congress, two out of three Supreme Court
Judge-, four out of the six Superior Court Judges,
the Attorney General and the Solicitor General, and
yet the address and Senex are endeavouring to per
suade us agasnst light and knowledge, that we are
trampling in the dust the rights of our fellow citizens
ol the w est. The people of the West do not lay
this un -haritable charge as a crying sin at our door?.
It is the work oi a few designing politicians to juggle
you out of your rights. A deeper scheme is laid lor
you than you are aware of; you are told that the
polls will be open at the August elections to ascertain
whether the people will have a Convention or not.
Strenuous exertions will be made to obtain an almost
unanimous vote in its favor in the West; and if they
can succeed in obtaining but a partial vote in the
East, they will have a majority, and thus obtain a
Convention. We beseech you not to vote at all on
the subject, lor every vote given in favor of a Con
vention, is one step nearer to your political condem
nation and downfall. If you are now lawfully pos
sessed of the balance of power, why surrender it to
the West? The East has always magnanimously
used it, and you have no certain guaranty that the
same disposition will be made of it by the West.
The West is said to possess the larger number of
white inhabitants : go not, therelore. into a Conven
tion where your voice will be lost, and you are not
permuieu io enjoy any benent on account ot your
black population. In the Northern States there arc
no slaves, and yet in the formation of the Constitu
tion of the United States, our Northern brethren had
the magnanimity to allow us, in sending representa
tives to Congress, to take into the computation three
filths of our coloured population. The address pro
poses to lop off this branch of our strength, and thus
to diminish our weight in the State counsels, and
give the power to the West. It is a dangerous thing
to trifle with a good Constitution of any kind ;
avoid all political quacks and nostrums turn
your attention to the internal improvement of the
State give employment to your idle, population

rou will soon find that our old Constitution is good

A veryobjectiouable feature in the plan of the
proposed Convention is, that it will render it so easy
a matter to beget future Conventions. It is unne
cessary to repeat, that this facility in uprooting prin
ciples which ought to he fixed, is fraught with dan
ger. It will not do to make a revolution whenever
a small defect maybe discovered, for under euch a
'purse, the citizen would never live in quiet. Many
a man, if he made it the object of his search, mio-ht
discover both in our state and federal relations, nu
merous unfelt evils, but would not such continual re

A Committee, composed of one member
from each Delegation was appointed, to
whom were referred all matters of enquiry,
with instructions to make a general report.
This Committee made a detailed report on
Friday afternoon, which elicited a most able,
animated and protracted discussion. After
being modified in several particulars, it was
adopted by a vote of bo to 37, on Saturday af
ternoon about 4 o'clock. Nearly the whole of
the debate which occurred in the Convention,
took place on a Resolution reported by the
Committee, which affirms that the true policv
ol the State requires, that its funds should, in
the first instance, be exclusively applied to
providing the means of internal transportation.
and in creating and improving markets within
her own limits. This Resolution was opposed
by Messrs. Iredell, Badger, Sneed, O' Bryan,
Graham and Nash, and advocated by Messrs.
J. A. Hill, Strange, Gaston, J. II. Bryan,
Haywood, Henry and Patterson.
