These feelings were in no-degree diminish

an inhabitant of a region countless miles

ing, however, as.we have no power to en
force: our wijl, it, is, at last, a mere, request.
But. I understand that our Senators hold a
different doctrine, j They say, that they are
bound to obey the will of the Legislature or
resign. If they wilPobey Sir, I for one, will
rejoice. If, on tho other hand, their princi
ples compel them to resign, it will be their
misfortune, riot our fault. But it is a mis
fortune over Which I shall not weep. It is

still our Resolutions would have a most ex
cedent effect They would explode for
ever and a day' the bumbuggery of Instruc
tions In N orlh Carolina. The people, see
ing that the Wbigs had disclaimed them,
and that their! adversaries, who bad been
most clamorous for them, bad when ap
plied to themselves, in like manner repudi
ated them the people will find out the
truth, that tt is all clap trap and humbug
If we can only accomplish this end, I, for
one, will be more than satisfied.
Oni another day, after ihree or four
Soeeches bad! been delivered against the
Resolutions, in which a good deal had been
said about the inconsistency of the Whigs

As hot as ginger; and as stieve as steel.
Cleaveland lived in a tory neighborhood, nr !
while be was out campaigoiog, these despr-j-does
used to depredate upon him greatly. They
would steal his horses, drive off his cattle, tr. .'
b'.irn his fences and cot-houses. A party u
them, headed by a leader, one Bill Harrises
went so far as to pat bis overseer to death f
endeavoring to protect bis employer's propert) .
The manner of this crime was somewhat pecu
liar They look tbeir victim lo a steep bill
and placing hian on a log, fastened one end cf
a grape vipe around his heck, and the other
over lhe pVong of a stooping dog-wood. When
they had thus arranged fit, one of the party
went up the bill, and rushing head foremen
against thfir captive, bonied him off into eter
nity, John, Dots was the name of tbe sufferer.
Now, John Cleaveland was not the man to put
up with all these injuries, and the' day cf re
tribution was near at hand. Ilttrrisfsn, th 1
ring lea Jer in all these outrages,, shortly afirr
wardrf fell into Cleavtlands bands. lie vvm
an ingenious mechanic, whom Cleaveland Im !
often employed in more peaceful days, and l - '
done him many favors; and th remernbranca cf
these things were by no means calculated t
mit'gaie the offender's doom. Accompinied I;
bis favorite servant Bill, and one other indm i
ual, without speaking a word, Cleaveland car
ried his prisoner to the same dogwood on whir !i
he bad hanged poor Doss. Here was adangiir -the
very grape vine, which had been nsri I:
tbe former occasisn. Wiiboot more to do, 1,
placed the noose over the other's neck and plac ed
him on the log. You will not haog tne C !

Wretch. 'Can yoo give me any reason why I
should not do it' said the other. 'Yoi know I
am a useful man in this neighborhood' said 'Har
rison and cannot well be spared ; 1 have ro::
over, discovered the secret of perpetaal rr. -lion,-
and if lam put to death the world
lose the benefit of my discovery. Beside? tl. ,
I have heard you curse Bryant and Fanning f r
putiing prisoners -to death. Where are t,'
principles ? . Where is your conscience, u u
you are about to execute vengeance on me, jt
