MR. POLK'S HABITS.
The extravagant eulogy of the Uniqn
upon the President, with1 its description of
his persona,! habits, has elicited from Pren
tice, of the Louisville Journal, the fo!lov-
irjg excellent burlesque :' . .
Mr. Polk's College Life. The Govern
ment editor, referring to this very inter
esting period ot Mr. rolks lite, says:
' It is said, and we believe upon relia
ble authority, that when: at college he ne
ver failed to attend a single recitation, or
to perform any other duty required of
on equal justice and fairness. If however,
such bodies, through party spirit or blind
ness, violate this plain principle of gov
ernment, the work of their barrels should
be speedily undone, or remodel, so as to
correct the evil -complained of. With this
view of the case, we are inclined to the
opinion that re-districting should take
place. It is1 An unquestionable truth that
the Whigs had a popular majority in North
Carolina, at the very time ihe Democratic
Legislatuie deprived. them of their influ
ence and ptwer in the Congress; of the
United States by the manner iri which
they arranged her counties into Districts;
and, what is fnore, they haye maintained
and increased that majority ;since then ;
until now, they are largely in tlie ascen
dant, as manifested both by the election
of Governor, and Members to the Legis
lature. And yet, notwithstanding this, out
of nine Representatives sent to Congress ;
the Locos send six and the, Whigs send
three ; and this is the effect jof the district
ing law passed in 1842. It does scemto
us that no man of honesty -mid even hand
ed justice can ; regard this subject in any
other light than that in which we have
endeavored to present it. i j
But we will conclude our remarks by
inviting attention to the following extracts
from other journals, on the samel subject :
. jFrom the Rothstrr (N. Y.) Democrat.
The; farmers are often the sufferers from fie
titiousjexcitements as the millers, and they have
as deep an interest in preventing exaggerations.
The experience of the past jear is an illustra
tion. jVery many farmers, whose means ena
bled them to do si; held on to their wheat
through the whofa f tbe rie" of last fall, under
the impression that they would be able at a la

was a heavy loss, j iThey placed more cimfi.

THE RISE IX THEPRICE OF FLOUR.
From the Baltimore American.
We observe numerous paragraphs in
the journals of the Administration which
connect the recent rise in flour and grain
with the Tariff of 184G and the reduction
of British duties on Breadstuff's. "The
Whig press," says one of these journals, '
"with all their arguments goining to show i
that the farmer would not be benefitted '
by ihe recent change in the protective systems
of this country and England, will find how soon
I he! r flimsy theories will give way before prac
tical and stubborn- truth. The hardy tiller of
the soil, and the tens of thousands who prosper,
as he prospers, will hail the opening prospect
with sincere and hearty joy."
It is very well known that a rise in the price
of flour took place last year, founded upon the
prevalence of the potatoe disease in Europe and
the apprehension of a short crop. The Tarifl
0J1842 was then in operation ; the Corn-Laws
were not repealed. It is also well known, too
well known by some who shipped flour to En
gland on the occasion of that rise, that the sud
fiirmnrit Mil illrtlT' li'nlfnr iKnn urn .in tv Knl Vi m r
mere is enougn in this to warrant a second edi
tion of the unnatural and unhealty flurry of last
autumn. What may come is a different affair.
It is possible that the. crop will be a short one,
but we have no idea that our agricultural read
ers would thank us for heralding as having al
ready occurred what it is only possible may oc
cur. With regard to the potato rot, we have yet
seen nothing which, would justify the. opinion
that that terrible disease ii any more threaten
ing now than it was last year. Famine was
preached then and famine is preached now.
But every one knows that the extent of i he ml
was greatly exaggerated last year, and we have
nothing before us to induce us to believe that the
same game is not now being played.

RE-DISTRICTING THE STATE.
The thing is almost visible to a blind-man,
that the democratic legislature-commonly call
ed the Gerry manding Legislature of bbr State,
which arranged the Congressional Districts, so
arranged them as to enable the mihbrity (the
democrats) to send a larger number of delegates
to Congress than the majority, who hiro whig?.
Behold the situation of the State ! Here is the
Whig party with a large majority of the popu
lar vote a, majority of many thousands per
mitted to send but Three delegates! out of the
Nine to Congress, and the Democrats, far in
the minority in the popular voteallowed to
send feix out of the .Nine-! Is it right is it
just is it honest? How happens it ? Need
we tell the reader that a Democratic Legisla
ture, in laying the State off into Ninci'Congrcs
sional Districts, tried so to arrange thetn as to
get all the Representatives ib Congress ? But
they were obliged to give us three of the dis
tricts obliged, because, shape the districts as
they would, they could not help it. And such
Districts ! just look at them consider them for
a moment ! Isn't this district we live in a pret
ty shoe-string Affair? Why, it's about Three
Hundred miles long-it is so lengthy that we
have never been able to hear from the upper
end of it and if for no other reason we would
have the whole of the districts altered to get
this (the Third) put into a better form;
We are pleased to see that the Raleigh Reg
ister discusses this matter, and calls 'the atten
tion of the approaching Legislature to the im
portance of the subject. We are no kdvocate
for altering Or amending laws for light and triv
ial causes. ; Rut a law like the one under con
sideration is so important, and at the same time
wears upon its face such manifest fraud and
gross injustice, that we thirst the Legislature
will merit the stamp of odium if it adjourns
without revising and amending the Gerryman
der act in btiestion. The voice and spirit of
occasion at a pretty round sum some twn or
three millions of dollars.
We hope that the present rise in prices may
be better sustained : yet we cannot forbear the
advice that it would bo most prudet for Ameri
can dealers to wait orders rather than ship
largely on their own account.
It will reqtiire a longer time than has elaps
ed since the passage of the Administration Ta
riff and the reduction of the "British Corn-Laws
to ascertain fairly the effects of either measure
upon the prices of our breadstuffs. Flour fell to
a very low point soon after the passage of the
new Tariff: it was down to 83.75 per barrel
in this market only a fortnight since. We did
not hear this fall ascribed to the passage of the
new act. There is still less reason to ascribe
the present rise to that act, because the act it
self has not yet gone into operation.
A very abundant crop at home, making the
prices of flour low, may enable us hereafter, as
one of the effects of the new Tariff. They
arc alarmed about this new Tariff law of
Mr. Polk's, and they will certainly loose
no opportunity to stick in a word for it,
whenever there is a possibility of circum
stances admitting of it. The law does
not go into operation tmtil December next.
It is well enough to remember that also :
The Catterpillar. We have the most deplo
rable accounts from every quarter of the injury
of the Cotton crop by ihe Caterpillar. A gen
