to enquire of him, if be should be re-elect-j

four, jears to apply for admission into fhei
Uulon, whether he would not in conformity!
with the opinions expressed above, unless1
slavery was prohibited, veto any bill that.
might pass Congress Tor their admission?
An answer to that might test his Southern
principles if " ;?
Does he forget, or does he suppose the
people have forgotten that in 1821, in the
Convention of New York, he voted to ex-
end the right of suffrage to Negroes, wheri
by Ais vote; and one more, it would have
been defeated ? Does he forget his vote
on the subject of slavery in 182-2, on the
r lorida question f Does he forget thit he
acknowledges the constitutional power of
Congress to abolish jslavery in the District
of Columbia, and have his friends so far for
gotten what is duejto themselves and jou.
as to attempt, in the face of all this, to palm
him off under the title of a Democrat, up
on Southern credulity, as a Nnhern man
with Southern principles r i es, they hive ;
aiid his followers have he hollow heaited
hrpocricy to pretend they are afraid to trust
Gen. Harrison on this subject, while they
profess to believe Air. Van Uuren the onijr
man that the South) can safelr trust. All
the Whigs are either Abolitionists, or are
associated and identified with them, while
General Harrison, who has sostaioed more
personal and political sacrifices in defence
of Southern principles than any ; man alive
voting against Mr. Van Burens -anti-sla
very principles on the Missouri question,
denying the right of Congress or the non
slaveholding States! to interfere in any man
ner with the subject of slavery, and eveh
going so far as to declare that the people bf
the non-slavebolding States cannot discuss
the question of slavery without a violation
of the spirit of the .Constitution, and yet he
cannot be trusted hy the South,
Suppose as a Member of a State Conver
tion, upon a proposition that every free
while male citizen,; &c. should be entitled I
to vote, 1 were to vote to strise otu ue worn

Van Buren did, and then defend it on tl)c

is it a matter of les consequence to you that

In answer to thr statemeot which we made
j last Week iiv relation tb the appointment of Hen
crt.ua as r.simssier, ai uoneurd, we hive re
ceived ihe leiter below. The writer denies ' tb
core and talks largely about hi. ability lo prove
fIsebooJa. Well, this is aTTperfectly nalurl
we would as soon believe the bud boastins of the
Guvcrnrnent officer at Concord as at any other
place. Tbey all know their obligation and the
penalty of neglect.' We are not convinced that
we have misstated any thing about Henderson's
ap p rotmeni. We assure our friends iho state
ment made in our last week's paper was made
upon the words of three as respectable gentle
men lof Concord, as live in the placeand it will
take something mare than the disinterested de
nial below ta make us believe our iafurmunts are
in error. That the appointment is very dissatis
factory to those mostly concerned is indisputable.
VV have heard it said tbat Col. Coleman, the
Assistant Postmaster at Washington, fixed the
business with Henderson when in Cabarrus on a
visit in the Spring, as aboot that lime a
change is known to have come over Ihe spirit
of his dream, and he aoddenlr transformed from
a broken down, inactive and desnairintr fnlinuor I
of th Magician, to a most daring, efficient and
whole hog man of the party in the Couaty.

Messrs Pendleton 4 lirxmer
In vourlast oom-
I b.?r of the Watchman, I see yoo have roeniiohed
my name in connection with the rust othce in
Concord. You say that you have it ' upon the
best authority " that Mr Cravons petition went
on several days in advance vl mine. Now
sir this is a fa's hood, and I am able to prove it,
by as gooa evidence as is in the State. You
further say that I was appointed op an ' almost
individual application" ; ,
Now sir th:s is another falsehood,and I am able
prove it. There were as many signer lo my
petition as were to Mr Cravons, and sir there
were twelve whigs of aa high standing as ate in
the County .indeed some of the very leaders of the
party, signers of my petition, and all these aie
Citizens of Concord. My petition was signed
promiscuously, by Whigs and Van Buren men.
Now sir yon are WH aware that any man who
indostrisusly circulates falsehood though upon
the best authority " is not exempt from the
merited odium attached to soch condoct. I am
willing to compare my petition with Mr Cravuii
(who is a gentleman) and should not fear the
result of the comparison either in numbers or
the ifspectabiliiy of signers, supposing that
youst lo dal Justice to every Man,) shall expect
to see your notice corrtcled in the next Watch

For the Carolina Waichman
It is perceived by theVan Bo'en papers that
our' fiends on that side.tiave kindly volunteered
! save ih Whigs ihe trouble ol norairiattng
Senators. The Standard recommends two dis
tinguished Whigs as deserving support although
by applying the name of ' Federalist,' ihe Ed
nor intends to injure ihe Whi? cause. I trust
that the troe DmocracjLwill not be driven In ra
the support of these distinguished gentlemerror
any others thy may choose by ihe application of
this term by oor enemies. The Federal partly hts
long ceased to exist, aruLthese gentlemen; have
proved their Republican principles by ari able
and effectual opposition to the increase uf jover
in the Federal Executive.
Permit.' Messrs Editors, a Whig to mention
.he name f another distinguished man in con
nection with this appointment: it is that 'of
Liiwis Williams. I am aware Jiis uame fr
a long liuie has stood prominent among; those
spoken of. Mr. Williams is well known as an
experienced 6tat?man and an unflinehinyVV hig.
When we look back upon the Jackson torrent
by which our once happy land has been desola
ted, we find him altnnr iheonly prominent man
in our Slate, who at all tiroes and undtr all cir
cumstances -temmed the flood undectivert bv
the pretended moderation, unseduced by hs flat
tery and onawrd by the power, of the Hero of
tvtti wars. Mi. Williams was always found
warning and exhorting his fellow citizens to ral
ly to ihe-Mreixruex f their Country, and piloting
out in anticipation that deplorable result whih
is now a mailer of history. Mr.-Williams sh j
taioed hiinsell by his energy, and those energies
are still undiminished. He has-been tried byt
open con'est and sedrel stratagem and has tri
umphed over open and hidden foes and the re
sult of all the roceni elections in his district is
evidence of the collect information hedisemi
aated. By his firm and upright course he has
from an avowed abolitionist. They are in close ! f cuonoence
