' "ffi copy (turn the Ahevil!e Fpectstor, an o
.-it of lb discussion between th eaaidato
m tb office rfGwvwrnor, Juhe A. Ollatr,
end Thomas Hr, which took place at IlendeT
souvilie a few daysago. W intended ta have
given it ia tat last mum, hut w did lot imjii
it ia lime to do to, and w give k twtii ia this
week issue.
Mr. Gilmer lead off by speaking la growing
term ef war mountain country, it scenery, ha
climate, and (tie liebnea and fertility ef its soil,
birh, ia all thee respects, far surpsesed bis ex
pectations, lie mUl that if w could b placed
ia connection with tit rest of Ilia world by
moms f railroad facilities. Billions of money
expended by lb seeker of health-sad pleasure,
ia regions le-a favored by nature, would bs ex
ponded ia this beautiful seetJoa uf the on on try,
and w would heeunie a wealth and proaperoiM
people. He then challenged an examination of
tin Liegisuuve record since liHti, when he f rat
became a member of the Legislature; be declared
and was ready to prove by the record, that Be
projeet had ever bee t pet an ft for I lie improve
ment of the State, East or West, that John A.
Gilmer did not tote fur that be had voted, for
tlie French Broad railroad charter, and wu op
posed to and had voted against the restrictions
calculated to embarrass the success of this road.
The lemoersttc party, said Mr. Gilmer, bad been
an ffNii'-lnternal Improvement Party, un'il, by
th liberal policy of th W higs, the State became
sn Internal Improvement State, and then, and
riot till then, did th Iemoerats advocate Im
provement; then tried to appropriate all the credit
the themselves, somewhat like the man,whe after
J.ia wife had killed th bear, earn is the scene
f conflict and very brattly said, "now wife, ain't
Kt hrarc!" i . .
Mr. Gilmer then stated that while the State
debt is being increased, and th people are be
coming more oppressed by taxation, it becomes
ur duty as a prudent peoplo, to look about and
endeavor to devise ways and mean to pay off
and liquidate this puUic debt and thus save tbs
credit uOhe Stale, and relieve th people of tax
ation. Ilgthoueht this, inn measure, at least,
could be accomplished, in th first place, by mak
ing the Stat bonds payable at home instead of
in . York, as lias been the CMe-hiflTerto; and,
.secondly, by giving tli Note, as for ts practice
1I. the brnrfltt of Hanking now priBcipally de
prived by indivhlusla that th profits now mad
ly individual bankers, if the state were unit
lianktng with Internal Improvement, might be
raved to the State, and thus lessen th burthens
i f taxation that it is in the power of the State
to realise what individuals realiie that what
the Stat might realise, ever and abov six per
rent., coald be laid up as a sinking fnnd to rinal
; ly liquidate the principal of the State's indebted
ness. To show the great disadvantage of mak
ing th Stat bonds parable abroad, h stated
that when tlicy fell due, payment is to b mad
in gold and ilvcr or their equivalent, tb ffoet
: of which had a ruinous tendency. Koppose, said
be, that the iinmens puhlie debt of England bad
to he paid in other countries, or the debts of th
Slates of N. York or Pennsylvania why, th
' effect would be, that they would lecome insolv
ent, nd would have to repudiate. Mr. Gilmer
tuutendcJ (list if this policy (of which th fore
mint ia a over outliuoi should be adonted bv
North Carolina, it would add new encouragement
to Internal Improvement, and that our cuod eld
tate would go in a career of prosperity, impart
ing new life and vigor In it In'everv section. Mr
I j. suited that he waa do banker himself; but that
l.e boned lie had common sense, and this was an
necessary to understand and appreciate this ques
tion, lie hail challenged his comostitor IGo.

Gov. Bragg on being asked whetherthi amend
ment ought nut to have been added and passed,
weald not anewer, but asked Mr. tiiluser waet be
wonid do, if be bad anything to say when it com
again at tb next session. Mr. Gilmer said tbat
waaasking n good deal of him, ra a niacu as
the next lienat weuid b elected, and Gov.
Bragg submit bis message, and the mod passed
or defeated before in any event be eould say any
more than he bad said and done hut if it be
com bis doty to say anything on this suhjeet he
wools exert himself to compromise nnd end this
question which eould be done by the Senate's
passing the bill in its present shape, with the
pledge and understanding for the satisfaction of
tb freeholder in all the districts, that the said
amendment, securing equality aa to the taxing
power, should pass and be submitted as a new
and distinct preposition, and if passed under such
compromise, it would st the next session also
pass and if. they, th Senate, would not do
this then submit the present bill amended as
proposed, aud that would end it,
Mr. Gi mer then discussed, at length, the sub
ject of Americanism. He asid that Gov. Bragg
studiously nvotued diseasing me prinnpia oi toe
American parxy ; mat n is cum uujvc smeu w
be to aroua th prejudices of tb people against
wkat reallv did not exist that is, tlx ssereey
and tb obfigaiioo of tb members, these having,
long ago, been dune away with there being, at
this time, nothing necessary to membership of
th American 'arty, 'save th approval of its
nrisxiple. Mr. V. then staled, (wnat is a matter
ol history, that th position occupies oy me
UisuuioDists, in th Nashville Convention, in
I860, was identical, in reference to the Missouri
Compromise, with tbat occupied by the Black
Ilepublican at this ties. Tbat th proceedings
of that Cor vent ion will show that they wen tlieo
in favor of the extension of the Missouri Com
promise to tli pacific ocean a nn ultimatum
that, if this were not don they were for dissolv
ing the t r.ion. Kow aaid Mr.3 tb Missouri
restriction having been repealed, the Black lie-'
publican insist upon the -reparation of this re
striction as nn vltimatvm. He also showed that
tb Kemoeratie Convention of this Stat, in 1855,
wer in fiivorof abiding by tb Missouri Compro
mise, by tbo adoption of lbs following resolution;
" FtiUttil, That th Compromise, known as
lb Missouri Com promise, was adopted in a spir
it of mutual concession and eoiioiliatioti i and
though the South ieel that it detracts from het
constitutional rights, yet for their love of the
bnion, thi convention is vuIIidk to abide bv it.
and would cheerfully see all th distracting
questions settlor on this basis.
At tbat lime, continued Mr. 0.. the Raloieh
Slamlard, tb organ of Uov. Ilracg a party ue
Bounced thoee who were for abiding by th Com
promise of 1M40, at " luhniissioliiels." II then
read the pledg,, that was signed by Henry Cloy,
root, Clemens, etephens. Unwell Colib, snd ma
ty other distinguished gentlemen. i hies and
Ifemocrats, to the efiect, Uiat they would not sup
port tor 1 resident or Vic l'resiuent, for benator

wasnotkiiowoUi be opposed to th diet urbane of

npon th iihjeet of slavery. He spoke thus to
show tli inoonsistenrv. not to sav the hv Toen
ail, of the Itemocratia party, in relat'iou to tb
repeal ol th Missouri l uuiiirutms.
Mr. Ii inner next alluded to the enure riursued
by Mt. Fillmore as president j tbat this pure
patriot, uurmg in whole (.1 bis administration,
did not appoint a siajil froesoiler to office, but
on theoontrurv.when ho found one in offioe.he turn

thi question. The country waa known to be

notwithstanding Mr. 1'ieree' pledge that be
would discountenance agitation either inCongresa
or uutofvtt Mr. Gilmer significantly stales in
Ibis connection that Mr. Fillmore was lb eon of

of let important in.itters j but pow every epirit

the party has attained tbe utmost purity of prin.
eiple and aoundnea - of organisation. W ar all
in free and friendly fellowship ; we all ttand up'
on the sam platform, in which th perversa in'
genutty of party can detect no unsound plank."
Th Democratic party a real and perfect

ia to wonderfully refreshing, Th Enquirer also
announcet that it party ia a unit " for th first
in it history." Now it occur to at that thit
claim bat been set up for the Democracy, by all
the politicians at.d presses of th party, from
tint immemorial. Th Enquirer Itself ha never
failed on any occasion in season or out of teuton
to proclaim the thorough unity and nationality
of th Democracy. And so, it mutt either bar
been talking for Bunoomb sow.
But how can it be aaid that th Democratic

upon a third trial of bit tpeed, after to ditastnut

, bit nomination having effectually done th '
business. On the other hand, old Rourh-and.
Ready wu mocked for bis presumption in eater

greeted by the democracy with tueen and taunt.
Even th Buffalo bolt, which drew off to lent a

velled in it victorious anticipations, aad poand

dared to 'assert, or tven to intimate, tbat General
Taylor would receive a tingl electoral rot, it
wu laughed at. There wer no bowed te tb
