The friends of Mr. V. havo our sym-

this token of our appreciation of your
valuable services as speaker of the
house. The fairness, courtesy, imparti
ality and ability with which you have
presided, has been a distinguished
feature of our sessions. The dispatch
ol tho people's business has been ow
ing principally to your efforts and I
have no hesitancy in Baying, that our
constituencies wIllrecogrniZ8 them as do
we, and that in this presentation as in
all things else we have endeavored to
be their true representatives. May
the same success attend you in your
future lifor which has marked your
course in the position you have so ably
filled here and to which your qualities
of head aud heart so eminently entitle
you. In parting with you let me assure
you, sir, that you are accompanied by
the respect and esteem of every mem
ber of this honse, and when In the even
ing quiet of your home your eye may
chance to fall upon this service. We
trust that you may remember us with
the same kindly feelings that we will
ever cherish for you,!'
The service consisted of a coffee pot,
rWo tea pots, one milk pitcher, one
suirar dishr one bowl, one butterdish,
oue butter knife and one ladel of solid
silver in an elegant silver waiter.
Speaker Robinson, in accepting the
present, said :
Gentlemen of the llouse: This act of
yours has produced emotions of a pleas
ing, and at the same time of a painful
character. Pleasing, becauso I know it
to be prompted by impulses on your
part, which are kind and complimenta
ry ; and painful because I have no fit
ting words to express the feelings your
action has inspired. To say that I ap
preciate and feel flattered by this testi
monial, is not enough. To say that I
accept it, is an indication that you en
dorse my course, as your speaker, does
not tell it all. The feature, on ! this oc
casion, that will be remembered in after
life with most pleasure, is that, aside
from all political or party affinities, it
comes from friends that I esteem and
love, and will b prized by me while
life lasts, as a souvenir of associations
both of a public and social nature, which
can never be forgotten. I thank you
again, from my heart, for this testimo
nial of your approbation and friendship.

TK' general assembly has ;ul
TUm announcement will be hailed,
with joy by the people of the State,
without regard to color or race.
v "all the imbeciles and imprac
ticable, ever assembled in council,
this was entitled to the premium
for utter worth letterless. Partizan,
illiberal, narrow-minded, unstates-man-like,
it stands pre-eminent.
The distinguished democratic
meinoer of congress from the 3rd
North Carolina district, could find
nothing with which to compare
this general assembly, except a cer
tain liquor ho had heard of "which
was too weak to run down hill."
A distinguished lawyer of West
ern North Carolina, (not a republi
can) is rejKjrtcd as saying, that
while such another legislature in
Ioint of iiiilecility might, by hard
work, be picked out, that such an
one could not be obtained "by any
thing like a fair draft."
Another distinguished democrat
complained in this city, a week or
so ago, that he smelt the dead and
putrid camiss of this general assem
bly ail the way from Charlotte.
Klected under an unconstitutional
and disgraceful gerrymander, by
means of factious challenging of
voters and ballot-box stufllngby im
Iorted thieves, this legislature has
been a stigma on the fair name of
the State, and after an existence of
two years as a mammoth excresc
ence on the Ixxly iolitic it falls off
of its own rottoncss, ami a feeling
of relief is instantly felt from Cur
rituck to Cherokee.

From our report of tho decisions tiled.
it will be seen that Allen Mcl'herson
and Henry Williams, who were con
victed at January term of Wake superi
or court, have been awarded a new
trial. The prisoners were represented in
both courts bv Messrs. 1. It. I'nrneli ana
J. C. L. Harris. These gentlemen dis
played much energy in the defence of
tho defendants, and we have heard their
arguments before the supremo court
spoken of as exhibiting research and
talent. They are rising young men,
and deserve well of the public.
The regular term ot ako seperior
court will be heard in April next, at
which term McPherson and Williams
will bo tried again.

simply said Poor dogs!" and there
was silence in the hall for the space

A good deal has been said about
