THURSDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 17, 1848.
FOR PRESIDENT, -
GENERAL ZACHARY TAYLOR,
NATIONAL WHIG CONVENTION.
The proceedings of the Whig members
of; Congress will be found in todays pa
per, recommending that a Convention be
held in Philadelphia, on the 7th day of
June next. It is highly important that
every State should be represented, in or
der that a correct knowledge of public
septiment may be known, as to who shall
be run, as the Whig Candidate. We re
spectfully suggest to the Whigs the prp
priety of holding a District Convention, in
good season, for the purpose of appointing
a delegate to represent this District in the
Convention. Statesville, we think, would
bej the best place for the delegates of the
several counties to meet at. It is nearer

:4 ' A- 1 :
Our Democratic friends, we perceive, have
issued a hand. bill calling a meeting for the pur
pose of appointing delegates to a District Con
vention, the object of which is to appoint a dele
gala to the National Convention to be held at
Baltimore ; and also to appoint delegates to a
tljhis is all right and proper. The hand-bill,
however, is somewhat a curiosity : it has to it
a it ing of thirty-six names, strung on as pro
miscuously as if they had been drawn from a
hat. Our worthy fellow. citizen, Mr. B. F.
ey, has the honor of heading the list. We
trus he may always be permitted to fill so con
spjcjous a place in his party as on this occa
sion. By.lhe.way, we cannot resist the temp
tatic n to refer to a speech of his, made some
years ago, which was, perhaps, the most com
plf t triumph we ever witnessed. It was made
before a Debating Society, and was in reply to
a gallant and eloquent speech by Mr. It. W. L.,
a junior member pf said Society, on the ques
tion!" Ought women to have the right to vote."
Mr. F. rose, and proceeded to address himself
to the President, thus ;: '
;M r. President -ahem ! ahem! the gentleman
wool last addressed you, ahem ! says that as
loogas that which is wit tun him remains, ahem !

P " JJ o J
trV green apnles. and I should like to know
ing on Thursday last, although it did not
from some cause or other, enlist many of
the inhabitants of this town, were in the
highest degree creditable and interesting.
The speech of Mr Clarke was able and
was admired uncommonly well. Mr, Fish
er spoke with great ability also : we wish
their voices could have reached to those
beyond, and about the Capitol, who think
the proposed Rail Road ought not to be
made. Their views w'ere manlyj patri
otic and firm. They could hardly believe
that so reasonable a claim as that of be
ing allowed to help ourselves in otir ownj
way, could meet with disfavor In any
quarter. But as we had been cautioned
that a strenuous opposition would be
made, we should prepare for it. The cit
izens in this part of the: West, they said,
had never received any thing from the
State, though they had on all occasions
assisted the East in their public works,
and they called upon our people to come
forward, and with one voice to demand
our rights. Mr. Fisher went on to. say,
that we had not only a claim for a char
ter, but we had a most righteous claim
on the State for an appropriation jof mo
ney and that vhile. there was one vital
throb in our bosoms, we ought to, and
"would demand it. The remarks 'of Mr.
Rufus Barringer, who had lately returned
from a meeting of the Stockholders of the
Charlotte and Columbia Rail Road Com
pany, were in a high degree intetesing
and encouraging. We are assured from
other sources that there is a spirit and
determined resolution in the people of
South Carolina to consummate this work
at all hazards, and in spite of all difficulties.
We are sorry, to hear that some of the
Stockholders, df our own State are about
to retard the work from a misplaced and
ill-timed refusal to let their subscriptions
go into the general fund. They are afraid
that if the funds should give out before
the road reaches the North Carolina line,
that the work possibly may never reach
the town of Charlotte, and that one of the
advantages expected when they subscrib
ed, to wit, the enhancement of their pro
perty would never be realized. We learn
on the other hand, that the Stockholders
of Cabarrus have consented to any appli
cation of their funds that the Board may
make. We greatly deprecate the view
taken of this matter by our friends. For
our own part, we should as leave think of
doubting the bravery of the Palmetto
Regiment, as the good faith or persever
ance of the Sonth Carolina Stockholders.
He little understands the spirit of this age,
and he but dimly scans what is passing,
and what is past, who doubts the oinwrard
march of this work stop in South Caro
lina ! 1 There are a thousand impulses at
work in a thousand different places be
tween Columbia and Richmond, that will
drive on the Iron Horse. From causes
like that of which we speak, he may pro
gress slowly on parts of the contempla
ted route, but turn back he cannot, and
stop he must not ! We hope all these
gentlemen will come up to our great meet
ing in June, and as we are all labouring
in a common cause, their participation in
our counsels will cheer on the undertak
ing in every quarter. We say the same
to our friends in Virginia. A prospect
has opened of new allowances hnd of
new associations. New interests are
springing up in the three States, that for
all time to come, will act upon each oth
er we should like to see those by whom
these destinies are tobe controlled, brought
together on the occasion referred to, if for
nothing else, that a proper degree of con
fidence may be established amorig the
leaders of the enterprise in the various
sections. i ,
One broad consideration lies at the bot
tom of this measure. It is that the ajmount
of travelling already existing between the
-North and the South would afford con
stant employment for daily traink both
ways. If a pursuit is afforded constant
employment and does not thrive it is not
the' fault of the pursuit but of those who
manage it. If it be said we are not sure
of engrossing the present amount pf tra
velling, we answer we are sure of a great
deal more : for granting that the) Wil
mington Rail Road may: be extended to
Manchester, and thus! secure a larsre nart
be i cheaper It could be travelled in one
fourth ; of r the time Wilmington, then
might even continue to divide the travel
ling custom,! and yet this road might
expect to get at once fully as much:as
now passes North and South through the
Southern atlantic States, and in the con
tingencies pointed at would get the a
mount many fold times increased. These
contingencies are near at hand, and scarce
ly involve any uncertainty except as to
length of time required to complete "the
projected work. So that from data like
these, the' closest calculators of the day,
some of them sufficiently wary as to
Rail Roads, beyond a doubt, have given it
as their opinion, that whenever a good
Rail Road shall be made from Richmond
to Danville, and from Columbia to Char
lotte, the Stock for the intermediate route
would command a premium from the day
the books were closed. And furthermore,
that whenever these two points o-our
borders shall be reached, and the charter
obtained for the intermediate route, all the
Stock from Charleston to Richmond will
command a premium in the market.
Surely there are brighter prospects than
we have ever before had, and should be
sufficient to remove all timidity and dis
trust from our minds. These considera
tions, it will be perceived, do not include
the profits on the transportation of pro
duce, but it is not fair to reckon without
these : on a good road, such as we trust
every part of this will be, this kind of bu
siness is an important eliment of profit.
It is impossible, in the nature of things,
that our premises can prove treacherous,
for in Georgia, and in a part of South Car
olina, their validity have been proved by
a pretty thorough experience. If they
hold good as to a part of the plan, much
more must they hold good as to the whole.
We have gone somewhat at large into
this matter, but before we dismiss it we
will only add, that we expect without the
least difficulty to have this Stock taken
by Northern Capitalists if it is not taken
at home. But, we would much prefer to
see it in the hands of our neighbors : " Ev
ery thing is going to the North," say our
Southern Croakers. Aye, and every thing
will continue to go there while our monied
men prefer making profits on brokerage
and shaving, to aiding the industry of
the country. Bank Stocks Government
Stocks and p investments of this kind
do no more good for the world than .shav
ing notes does, and for all useful purposes
the money thus employed might as well 6e
out of existence. But there-is some ex
cuse lor Southern gentlemen in being thus
cautious with their money, we admit
the experiments that have come within
their immediate knowledge have been
most unfortunate : and we have not any
great deal of hope that all our argumen
tation will avail until they shall see some
successful result within our own borders.
We will not quarrel with them for this
caution, but when they shall hereafter see
the profits of enlightened enterprise going
into the pockets of our Northern friends,
they ought not to croak and complain of
it. H. C. J.
MIL BELL'S SPEECH.
The speech' mad by Mr. Bell, of Tennessee,
in the U. S. Senate, joa Wednesday and Thurs.
day, on the Ten Regiment Bill, is represented
to hare been very great and very brilliant.
Potomac," the correspondent of the Baltimore
Patriot, thus speaks jof it :
Mr. Bell resumed and concluded bit great
speech on the! war question, in the Senate to
day. I call it a grtot speech, for I havo high
authority for so denominating It. M hs clove,
Mr. Calhoun declared to some of the members
of the House, who were present, that Mr. Bell
bad mad? a great very great speech.
I listened to a portion of it, and regret ex
ceedingly thatfl was unable to be M in at the
death" of Governor Cass, for I learn that the
worthy Chairman o! the Committee on Milita.
ry Affairs was most essentially and completely
? laid out" by the able and adroit Tennessean !
While I did listen io Mr. Bell, he brought Jef.
ferson Davis to hi$ feel in lhe explanation of
h'i9 line of policy for carrying on the war, which
he avowed to bo the holding of the territory of
Mexico, to the Sit-rra Madre mountains, as se
curity, until we should compel Mexico to come
to terms of honorable peace. Ue said his
prayer was that such a peace should be made
before the Senator! from 1 ennessee could finish
his speech ! Mr. -Bell said, he joined b?drlilT
in that prayer; but he could Assure the distin
guishedJand galla'nt Senntor from Mississippi
but that very fe w of the leading men of the par
ty ho was attached to, politically, would agree
with him. Ceitajnly the Administration would
not. Whaterfir may formerly hate been the
Administration's views as to what it claimed
or would take, it now was for holding all Mex
ico by military, sway. And this line of policy
had, 5.s be believed from all he had seen and
learned, -been actually entered upon.
He went largely into an examination of the
force, counted upon by the Administration to
carry out its project, and of what he believed
would be necessary, and then expatiated upon
the results to the! Mexicans and to us of such
a line of policy. 'He7enlarged upon the obsta
cles and difficulties which we would be obliged
to encounter in carrying out such a policy
said there were twenty different tribes, or clans
or classes of people in Mexico, who speak
twenty different languages described how the
properly is partitioned off in that country tn
greater inequality than any other nation told
cf lhe blood lhat an in the veins of the proud
Castilian And Ceiic race, a remnant of which
still existed in Mexico, which would never suc
cumb, but bide its time to strike and called
upon the distinguished Senator across the cham
ber, who sat so much at his ease, (Mr. Benton)
to give to the public his enlarged and matured
views upon this grave aud important subject.
More than twenty years ago, Mr. Bell re
membered hearing that distinguished Senator
make an argument .upon a Spanish title, in the
Court House in Nashville, which, on account
of the great familiarity the gentleman exhibited
with the whole Subject, filled his own mind
with admiration at lhe time. He well remem
bered the occasion, but could not tell how long
ago it was it might have been more than
twenty years (or his own and lhe Senators
advantage, he dared not say how long it was
possibly it was thirty years ! Here the resist,
ibilities of the wfjole Senate was set powerful
ly in motion, whie Mr. Benton nodded his head
and laughingly said it was, (as 1 understood
him) 24 years ago !
In the concluding portion of Mr. Bell's
speech I am cre'dibly informed, he reviewed the
course of Governor Cass on the war question
in a strain of mixed courtesy, eloquence, and
sarcasm, which riveted the piofound attention
of the whole Senate and all others who were
present, and called forth the unbounded admi.
ration of every' jWhig, certainly, within the
sound of his voice.
Since 1 commenced writing this letter (in the
House of Representatives) several gentlemen,
members of Congress and othersrliave come
to me and voluntarily declared that I could
yoT say too m'Vcii in commendation of Mr.
Dell's master-speech, for it was the best, ablest.
most profound ant eloquent that had yet been
delivered in the Senate this session.
I write accordingly, and with a will, for John
Bell of Tennessee, has long been, with me
a sort of beau ideal of a great upright, deep
thinking Statesman. As your readers know,

speaks of the effect which the reading of this
letter produced in the House of Representatives.
The writer says :
" It was read amidst the deepest anxiety and
most profound silence. The effect produced
upon the House was such as I never before wit.
nessed. The members crowded around the
clerk's table to hear it. At its conclusion there
was an involuntary expression of triumph and
joy, that overwhelmed all Gen. Taylor's foes
with mortification and dismay. Fifteen thou
sand extra copies were moved, and, under the
rule, lhe motion lies over 'tlil Monday.'
" Independent," the Washington correspon.
dent of the Philadelphia-North American, in
his letter of the 2d inst., says :
In the political circles, there is a current sto.
ry for which I do not pretend to vouch, but
which has many believers in high places, that
a coolness has occurred between the Piesident
and General Cass. It is represented to have
happened in this way. After the inquiry of
Mr. Crittenden, which drew out the official
confirmation, that Gen. Scott had been supen.
ded and ordered before a Court of Inquiry, Gen.
Cass, at an- interview with the President, re
commended lhat lhe policy of the Administra--tionSn
reference to the war should be disclosed
in orJer that the parly might at once form up
on itand go before the country on the issue.
TheCPresident, as the story goes signified bis
desire to consult the cabinet, and at a subse
quent meeting with General Cass refused to
comply with his suggestion. This is the al
leged cause of the breach. It is said further
that General Houston was afterwards admitted
to confidential council with hia excellency, and
that his recent speech in New York at Tarn-
many Hall, reflects the views which be imbibea
on that occasion. Nobody, I apprehend, will
