London, Thursday evening, Aug. 8, half past
seven o'clock.- According to some of the Paris journal.--,
the Portuguese jexiles have already received
notice, that "their allowance will cease on the 1st Sep
tember, their power of returning to their own country
by that date, being taken for granted. It is also as
scrted that the ex-Empress and young Queen will
give up their Hotel in Paris in all September, which
proves that great confidence exists in the entire de

, . i Trenton, Sept. 14th, 1833,
Our Superior Court terminated its session
this morning. On Thursday morning, the Court pro
ceeded to the trial of Isaac D. Lipsey, who was in
dicted for murdering Agrippa Roberts, of Onslow
county. Lipsey's case waa removed from Onslow to
Duplin, and subsequently from the latter county to
Jones. There was much contradictory testimony,
eleven witnesses having been examined on the part
of the State, and fifteen for the Prisoner. For the
State, it was proven, that the unfortunate affair took
place at an electioneering muster on the North East
River in'Onslowxthat Lipsey and Roberts were seen
quarrelling, the former witha long, keen bladed knife
in his lmnd,and that he was after some reluctance
prevailed upon to put up hie knife, and Roberts indu
ced to get on his horse and go off; and that Lipse1
upon bcin interrogated as to what he intended to do
with bin knife, said that he intended " to stick it in
some one." After this, Lipsy went up to Roberts'
horse, took him by the bridle, snapped his fingers, &e.
as if to frighten the horse, this brought on an alter
cation. Roberfssaid he would not get mad, and laugh
ed, Lipsey was then seen to draw his knife and put
it into his" pantaloons pocket, with the handle down
wards One of the witnesses then said out aloud?
" that man has got a knife drawn, some one had better
take it away from him." Roberts upon hearing this,
got hold of a hickory stick, and stepped off two or
three steps, and Lipsey advanced through the crowd
uponhin, with his knife in one hand, and a stick in
the otheyand as he approached him, Roberts struck
Lipsey With his stick, and Lipsey run his knife into
hirn just below the waistband of his pantaloons.
Roberts staggered back, and expired in thirteen mi
nutes: Both blows seemed to be given near about
InP Rflmo f imo
This statement of the facts was materially varied
by the testimony offered in behalf of the Prisoner.
After Roberts got off from his horse, he was seen to
take Lipsey by the breast, and Lipsey then raised his
stick, but did not inflict any blow; they were then
separated, a dispute again arose between them, and
! Roberts was seen to advance upon Lipsey, and inflict
a blow upon him with a stick, and as he raised his
fctick to repqat the blow, Lipsey pitched at him, and
stabbed him, with his knife. There were many wit
nesses examined, and we believe this to be a correct
synopsis of the testimony on both sides. Here the
day closed, and the Judg, having put the Jury in
charge of an officer, caused the Court to be adjourned
until Friday morning at 8 o'clock.
The Court having met according to adjournment,
James V. Bryan, Esq. having been appointed Soli
citor for the State, in consequence of the indisposition
f Oenl. Stephen Miller, opened the argument in be
half of the State ; he was followed by G. S. Attmore,
and Jno. H. Bryan, Esq'rs. for the Prisoner, and the
argument for the State was closed by W. C. Stanly,
, El- We could not but admire the great dignity,
patience, and urbanity, of Judge Settle, during the
' Progress' of this arduous and laborious trial, for in ad
dition to the great length of time, consumed in the
lamination of the witnesses, each one of the Coun
sel) for the State and the Prisoner, addressed the Jury
for more than an hour a piece. The iudge summed
Vpthc'ttmony, in a clear, able, and lucid manner;
expounded the law arising upon the facts, with great
perspicuity, and the Jury after being absent sometime,
returned . a verdict ;of manslaughter. The prisoner
was sentenced to be branded with the letter M, on the
brawn ol his thumb, and to be imprisoned six months.
Judge Settle is a decided favorite among us, and his
decisions here, seem to have given very great satis
faction.. Yours, L.
A splendid government will invariably result from
oppressive and unequal taxation, as will be elucidated
by an account of the Tribute paid to their Caesar by
the people of England, which appears in the last
London Metropilitan,and is referred toin our columns.
We say a splendid government, but not a solid one.
Where the great operative mass of society is ''taxed
up to the eyes" to swell the pomp and bedeck the cha
riots of the privileged and unappr oachable sons of
prerogative nobility, an exterior of dazzling splen
dour must of course appear in all places of public re
sort. But the average state of the domestic fireside,
it- the true standard by which a government should
be judged. It is neither to be wished nor expected,
that any nation, in modern times, should reduce its
heads of department to the simplicity practised by
the old Roman general, who made it a point to live
on roots, but on the other, hand, preserve us heaven)
from a system of taxation which exacts from the ten
ant of a, narrow shop, one third more than from the
"princely Buckingham" f for his regal mansion 900
feet in front, with its corinthian columns, towers,
temples, woods and groves ! The public debt of Eng
land is now about 800 millions of pounds sterling,
yet it is said that 14,00 men in the kingdom could
pay it by sacrificing the immense fortunes which
they have accumulated.
Mrs. Trollope says that an American cannot con
verse for five minutes, without using the word " dol
lar" once or oftener. After "making due allowance
for fashionable exaggeration, it is to be feared that
there is much truth in this remark. Why should
the expression " worth" such and such a sum, receive
such universal andjestablished use? We say a man
is " worth thousand dollars," when the truth
is, that although by some means or other he has got
possessi- n of that sum, he is radically a man oHio
worth at all. Or do we mean by the term, that he
is worth no more than a heap of filthy lucre? If
either of t hese be the exclusive meaning, it is to say
the least, extremely one-sided. '
It has been leared that the integrity of the Union
would suffer at some future day, on account of the
vast extent of our Territory; but this danger will, we
hope, be happily obviated by the wonderful improve
ment ill the rate of travelling which we now possess
and whih is constantly progressing. Mankind will
always be more friendly and more refined, where free
intercourse and exchange exists. The wish of the
amorous hero in the old play, is nearly fulfilled.
.Ye Gods! annihilate but space and time,
And make two lovers happy!
No department of literature deserves to be more
warmly recommended to the perusal of the young
than that of hiography. The principle of imitation
which is such a prominent feeling in the minds of
youth, finds something upon which it can model itself,
when the noble map of a great and good life is out
stretched before it. History deals too much in gene
ralities, and employs itself loo much in the outward
and dazzling show of pomp. and circumstance, to af
ford nourishment for the aspirations of the ardent but
inexperienced. But biography combines the most
gratifying amusement with the severest truth it
lays open the hidden springs of great actions, and di
vested of the repulsive glare which pervades the vast
puppet-show of life, it instils virtuous ambition and
patriotic feelings. It is very desirable that every
truly great man should write his own life, in his own
style. The few biographies of this sort which we
possess, rank among the most invaluable legacies
which genius ever bequeathed to the world.
A most useful -apparatus has been invented in
London, which may be used for freshening salt-water
The miseries so frequently undergone by the crews
of vessels, upon the wide ocean, without any resource
for allaying thirst, may thus be most happily pre
vented. The instrument is one of most simple con
struction, and proceeds upon the well known natural
principle, that the steam arising from salt-water is
perfectly fresh. A stove is placed beneath a reser
voir of salt-water, the steam arising from which pas
ses through a pipe. At the end of this pipe is a
trough of cold water, by contact with which, the
steam is condensed into water, and fails into a reser
voir containing a quantity of fine sand which serves
to purify it. The water thus obtained is said to be
as good as spring water.
UNITED STATES BANK.
The Richmond Enquirer, in an article on the
Bank of the United States, says:
" We understand, however, that the mischievous
power of the United States Bank, is no longer an
abstract question. We warn the National Intelli
gencer that researches have been recently instituted,
mark not through Mr Amos Kendall? and dis
coveries made, of a secret service fund, or drafts,
and vouchers, of such a character, going to sap the
integrity of the press, as will probably astonish and
startle the public. But, when the curtain shall be
raised, it will be time to say more."
We do not like this practice of inuendoing, hinting
and generally and indefinitely charging, which is so
much in vogue. Nevertheless, let the "discoveries"
alluded to by the Enquirer be brought to light as
speedily as possible. If they are of the nature expres
sed, we 6hall not support the bank in its wrongdoing,
biit aid in exposing such nefarious proceedings to the
indignation of this people. We are not the partizans
of the bank are free to condemn as to applaud act
towards it as we do in all public and private matters.
" fait ce quil faut, arrive ce qu'il pourra," and
shall diligently assist in stripping it of any ill gotten
or ill used power, turned either against the govern
ment, the press, or the public. But we wait for
the " discoveries." Alexandria Gaz.
These are serious charges there is "noinuendo
about it. The charge is palpable and direct: "a
secret service fund" is "discovered" " draf ts"
"vouchers'-which will "astonish and startle" the
public, and affecting the " integritv of the press."
The independent editor of the Alexandria Gazette
is disposed to, pause; well he may! We told him,
some time since that we might pull together. WThat
we said before, we repeat:, the objec?ion to the U.
S. Bank lies deeper thai tho constitution lies in
the constitution of human nature ! Mt is too much
power to be concentrated in a few individuals; Man
is not competent to its faithful discharge. Gold is
corrupting in its very nature. Thd president has
not the same power that Mr. Biddleand hiY Board
have at Philadelphia. They have (extended their
operations until their debts amount to seventy mil
lions. The existence of thousands depends on their
noa; an qDnoxious individual can bet despatched as
effectually as he could have been by Dante, many
years since; and as silently and secietly as the vic
tim descends through the pit-fall. It Will all be done
in the " ordinary course of business;') "the curtail"
or the " refusal to renew are necessary for the bank'1
" it wants its funds," or "they mustthange hands."
Where will this matter end? Doeinot anv man
see that the government itself will toon be depen-
uciiL uu aucu tin iiiMiiuuou. i ne ocasi is now that
it holds in its vaults more specie than all the State
Banks in the Union that the government can't get
along without it. If it can strangle the government
whilst it is comparatively an infant, what will it not
do fifty years hence ; or- rather, what will it not have
the power to do? To check powerto distribute
power is our only safe-guard, is our only safety.
All monopolies are odious; all corporations are with
out souls all are more or less dangerous all must
be WATCHED. The U. S. Bank cannot be
watched ; no man can tell what it is doing; its ope
rations are so extended and so much detailed that
the eyes of Argus, could not reach them.
The A lean-v Argus hits off Major Noah and his
recipe for making a new party, in thefollowing ra
ther cutting style : '
" The Evening Star" is the title of a new daily
and semi-weekly paper, which is to b published in
the city of New York, by M. M. Noah ind Thomas
S. Gill. The prospectus of this paperfills sixteen
pages octavo, and is signed by M. M. Eoah. This
is rather a long preface for a newspaper, but the
reader will admit that it could not well te shortened,
when he is imformed of the great naonal topics
which are discussed, and that about five fages of the
book are occupied in giving a history of tie u Albany
Regency," " a confederacy," says the governor of
Ai rarat, aof persons nearly all holding Offices under
the state Government." Without even askine- per
mission of the coalition editors who "jwght, bled
and died" in the last campaign agaiitt Jackson,
Mr. Noah arrogantlv places himself atlhe head of
the "Anti-Regency party." The governor of Is
rael promises as much in his prospectus, jis he did in
his famous proclamation to the Israelites.,' He will be
about as successful in getting the confidence of the
friends of Jackson, as he was in collecfng shekels
from the Jews.

The March of Intellect. The lollowhg eloquent
observations are from the pen of the Re. Dr. Chal
mers, and they are as remarkable for .oundness of
thinking, as for splendor of style :
"It is not scholarship alone, says D. Chalmers,
but scholarship impregnated with religpn, that tells
on the great mass ol society. We hav no faith in
the efficacy of Mechanic's institutes, or even of pri
mary or elementary schools, for builflng up a vir
tuous and well conditioned people, .-(jlong as they
stand dissevered from the lessons of diristian piety.
There is a charm ascribed to the scholjstic system of
Scotland ; and the sanguine lmagmaton is, that by
importing its machinery into England and Ireland,
it will work the same marvellous tansformation
there on the character of their people, that was ex
perienced among ourselves. But it isbrgotten, that
a warm and earnest Christianity was he animating
spirit of all our peculiar institutions, fo generations
after they were framed ; and that wariing this, they
can no more perform the function of Moralizing the
people, than skeletons can perform thi lunctions, or
put forth the faculties of living men. The scholas
tic is incorporated with the ecclesiastcal system of
Scotland ; and that, riot for the purposqof intolerance
and exclusion, but for tle purpose of s;ncfilying edu
cation, and plying the boyhood of ourjand with the
lessons of the bible. The scholarship C mere letters
might, to a certain extent, have diffusid intelligence
amongst these people; but it is maidy to the pres
ence of the religious ingredients, tlat the moral
greatness of our peasantry is owing."

How the dickens could you git togeth
er so many ill mannered people in that thair town o'

said he, when we've laid by the corn, epose we go to
umi uiair ncwucm, una see wnat sorter looking place
it is I've hearn Squire Tweedle tell so much about
it, I've a raal curositytosee the place. Dun uncle
Zeb ! said I, for I had a raal eaching to see the rale
road, and the colery, which the squire was always a
tellifj of. -Well sho enuff the other day, me and un
cle Zeb hitched Dobbin to the big pea cart, and set
tin little. Benny Dawson astraddle on him, we driv
rite off for town, After ridin one day and a piece of
another, we begin to see a nation site o' houses on both
sides -of the road and sich a site o' cross roads I ne
ver did see. Look here, uncle Zeb, said 1, is this here
Newbern town 7 I dont know, Jessy, said he, becase
I never seed it. I look'd along the road, and, I seed a
teller a stepnin of it off so I hollered rite outtohim-
look here, mister, who lives in all these ere houses?
tie turned round, he did, and begin to laff like the
dickens look here, mister, whare did you larn your
manners, you grin worse 'an squire Tweedle's old
houn. With that I thort the cretur would split his
sides. I looked at uncle Zeb, and foundd that he was
a snickerin, and little Ben Dawson, for his part,
was fairly a ripin it out. With that, I got so
mad, I jist riz upouten the cart like, and let Dob
bin hav it for about a hundred yards, as hard as
I could rip. I looked up, and what should I see but
a great shed and a whole turno' horses and carts
standi n rite in the way. I seed there was no chance
of gittin by 'em in the main road, so I jist gin Dobbin
another crack, and wheeled him rite intef a by-path,
which I calcelated would lead inter the main road
agin. Dobbin wheeled inter the path about quick, I
tell you, but he hadent gone more 'an about ten
yard, before he brort rite up agin the side of a fence
and throwd me inter a grate heap o' cockle shells,
and pitched little Benny Dawson inter an old hogsit !
Igot up, I did, and sho enuff some tarnal fool had
put a ' fence rite across the road. Bom-bv I seed
a feller come sneakin outer the nearest house, and
he axt me what 1 wanted thair in his yard. By
this time, Benny Dawson begin to crawl up outen
the hogsit, and begged the feller for gimminy's sake
.to tell him whair he was. Whair should.you be but
in Newbern, said he, and if you back your horse out
inter the street, you can fasten him to the markit
hous. The way I backed Dobbin out inter the main
road agin, want to fool, and I soon hitched him to a
great shed, where I seed three wimin sellin a whole
nation o' gingercakes and watermillions. As soon as
I hitched the cretur, I turned round to uncle Zeb,
and said to him, uncle Zeb, spose you stay here, and
let nie and Benny go and buy them horse shoes, and
try to hear somethin about the rale road and the
colery. Uncle Zeb agreed, and me and Benny starts
rite off down the road. We hadent gone fur, before
we seed a whole passle o' men torking about the rale
road, and 1 heerd one feller say it was goin to run
a-1 the way to Roily !
" Look here, Mister," said I, " whair's that are
Roily you are a tellin of?" " Dont you know whair
Roily is?"said he, " why I rather guess its nigh
on to a hundred and twenty miles froin here."
" By the hoakies," said.l, " and is he rale road a
goin to run all the way to Roily ? Well, now, Mis
ter, I raly thort Squire Tweedle's nag Ball, could
run about rite, but lor he cant hold a candle to that
are rale road. When do you think its
e-tart, Mister ?"
a game to
" Look here, stranger " said he, "didentyou know
the rale road fell into the river the other dav, and got
rlrownd ?" I
" Lors, Mister, you dont say so why I cum all
the way here from home, to get a site of it; I've
hearn the squire tell of it so often." With that he
broke out inter a great horse laff, and made me as
mad as the nation but I walked off, and didint say
nothin. We hadent gone more 'an about twenty
yards further, before I seed a little boy a settin on
some steps. Darlin, said 1, can you tell me whair I
can fine some horse shoes ? Yes, sir, said he, jest
turn round that corner, and keep down the street till
you cum to a big house, and you'll fine shoes a
plenty, I'll warrant ye. Twant long before we
reached the house, and we went rite inter it. By
the hokiesl never seed so many shoes before in my
born days, and I kep a lookin and a lookin, till a
man who was a standin behin a great box,axt me if
I wanted any thing. Lors, mister, said I, whair in
the nation did you get sich a site o' shoes? I declare
they are of all sorts and sizes. Now here's a shoe I
jest can bairly get my thura inter, and I wish I may
be treed if them are pair up thair, aint big enuff for
equire Tweedle's old man Bob. The feller never
said nothin, but I seed him stoopin down, and he
pulled out a pairo' shoes, and said, mister, you ortlo
buy these ere shoes for your wife they are the rail
prunelle. No, mister said I, I dont want none of
these shoes I see here. Haint you no horse shoes ?
Rite strate I seed the feller's nap was risin, so I and
Benny made tracks in a raiL streak. We kep on till
we cum to one of them air pleggy cross roads, and
thair I seed a feller leanin up agin tho corner pickin
his teeth. Mister, said I, if you aint toobizzy, I wish
you'd tell me whair the colery is ? Turn round the
corner, said he, (looking sorter side ways at me like,)
and keep down to the river. Away we streaked it
agin, and 'twant long before we got down to the warf.
That minit I looked down the river I seed somethin
fairly a tairin the water up, and wheezin like a feller
with the croup, only twas iligh upon as loud as a
trumpit. Look here, mister, said I to a young man,
is that are the colery ? Yes sir, said he. Lord what
a varminty thing it is, said I, why it's a site bigger
'an uncle Zeb's barn. What makes it brethe so hard?
air they a tryin to drown it, like they did the rale
road ? I looked down the river agin, and the tarnal
thing was a comin rite strate up to the plaCe whair
we wair all a standing Lord ! Lord I how me and
Benny streaked it, for Uncle Zeb's cart. I cotched
the bridle, I did, and throwin it over Dobbin's neck I
had little Benny Dawson astraddle of him in no time
and then jumpin inter the fore part'bf the cart, me
and little Benny jest pealed it inter Dobbin about
rite. I told uncle Zeb what a varmint that colery
was, and we all three jest poured it inter Dobbin
from the word "go," and we went a ripstavin, I
tell you. I hope you'll larn them fellers in that town
o' yourn some manners if you will, and will drive
away that varmint of a colery too, I will be down
agin, and take a better look.
