Messrs. Editors: In regard to the election !.

arucies appeared in the Ltincoltii naDers a lew
weeks since nc in the Carolina Rt

of which was transferred to the columns of the
North Carolina Standard," together with a
etter written by Col. John H. Wheeler, to Go-
In those several publications, attempts are
made to prejudice the community against me,
by the indulgence of assertions that have no
foundations in truth.
i Before proceeding to reply to so much thus
written, as merits any, notice, I will, here say,
that; were this election to be held over again,
mv official acts should, under similar circum.
stances, be precisely what thefhe been, in
every important particular, for the plain and ob
vious roason,that the course I have pursued
was fair; and just and legal.
Now, to show that Col. Wheeler intended to !
cast censure on me, unless a major

Governor Manly of the 4th of May,

j . T . I- "
be seen, he commenced his attacks, by insisting
on the illegality of the election in the gtih Re !
giment, as early as the first of last February.
Now, it so happened, I was present at that
election, which is the upper Regiment; of Da
vidson, and I undertake to say, it waTheld ac
cording to the law, as laid down in the 13th sec.
of the 38th chap, of the Act of 1846, to which
Col. Wheeler refers, and which merely requires
the polls shall be opened at eleven o'clock and
remain open until three. On that day the polls
Were opened, accordingly, between 11 and 12
i o'clock, and remained open until after 3 o'clock,
there having been elections held also, for field
officers of the Regiment. This state -of facts
can be established, if necessary, by certificates
or affidavits of gentlemen, whose attention were
called to the law on that day, and who possess
as higTT character for truth and integrity as Col.
Wheeler. There was a full attendance oh that
day, as the vote shows, and strange as if may
appear to the public, Col. T Wheeler was present

Col, Wheeler would be on having passed him,
mi CD I . . T T
and I proceeded accordingly, to wri'.e tickets for
Wheeler and Gailhcj-; and when he (Wheeler)
reached there I presented them, fori which he
thanked me ; and during the election, at least a
part of the lime, we were in conversation. I
attempted to exert no influence either way, af.
terwards we parted, as we had met, courteously
and politely, and not a word of complaint
I Of complaint Was he
heard to utter.
? Now if the election had been illegally held,
or if any injustice had been done him, (and,
sUrely, no one had the opportunity of knowing
better than himself that such was not the case,)
why were no complaints heard on that day ?
Was not that the proper time I But why were
they not heard, until it was well ascertained, !
that if the whole Division, had lhe opportunity
oi voting, he would be defeated I For the rea- i
son, in my opinion, already given ; that he in-
tended to complain, and to attack me, either
diMctly, or by insinuation, unless a majority of
the officers of my Brigade suppoited him.
In his letter, in regard to the election in this ;
Regiment, he uses the following language :
' As regards the electiori in the 88th Regiment
j being illegally held, and not in accordance with ;
I the act of 1846, (lho same enactment I have ;
referred to.J-B-this is not now germaine to the
issue." If it ever was "germaine to the is
sue" why not so now ? (This was written, 1st i
off June, before any Commission issued.)
Were not the same facts then existing, and the
same principles still involved ? Surely, 1 they
were. So much for Col. Wheeler's complaint
in this matter, which I have shewn is without
foundation, and which in fact, he, himself; a
bahdons. After this, discovering that ' his first
charge was not "germaine to the issue," and
after its abandonment, he takes new ground,
an prefers other charges, equally untenable,'
and hopes thus to convince the public, that the .
law countenances the complaints and croakings ,
of a defeated candidate for office, ju id tbafthey ,
are to be taken as a good foundation for order
ing a Court Martial, on faithful officers, who
have discharged their duties. . J
But before opening fully on me the big guns
of his battery, he commences by boasting that
he beat General Gaither in Davie county, where
he never was in all his life ! He informs the
i world that he did not know, personally, a sin-
! ge oncer ,n Regiment. .Now, mqy not

But Col. Wheeler, after giving up his first
" iiue"and complaint, makes other charges
on me directly, and still more graved by de-
maiiding bt the Governor repeatedly, a Court
Martial on me, for delay in making my return.
NoV, having made this demand so often and so ' as the Colonel Commandant of those Regi
perejmtorily, and with so mapy flourishes and ments could have been punished for disobeying,

Manly, for disregarding his second
and specification," I deem tt proper to inform
Col.i; ,Wheeler, (notwithstanding he is a Law
2(er'3 and lhe very few other who do not alrea
dv know it. that this isnar is sti 1 ess " fer
"r "military or illegal niuther of which state
fl.i. : .. iLJ!fn.i un i-
of facts exist in this case. And if Col. Wheeler
did not know this, he ought to have known it.
Now, where is the law thatlauthorizes the Go
vernor to order a Couit Martial on a Brigadier
General'-.' Or, where is the law that fixes a
lime that a Brigadier General shall make his
return ? . Such law cannot be found because it
has never been enacted. . And yet, without any
law, or any justification, hje demands of he
Governor a Court Martial on me. I sincerely
wish that such-a law existed, then I could have
a Court Martial in my case!, when my official
acts could be triumphantly Vindicated, and the
misrepresentations arid untruths, of newspaper
scribblers and letter writers, could be more 1
fully unmasked, and more generally exposed,
But notwithstanding! all this! because Governor
Manly will not do that, which there is no law
for, and which he had no right and no power
i to do, he is to be called by jcarping newspaper
j scribblers, a partisan Goveibior !
Bui I am perfectly willing that Col. Wheel.
er and his special friends, shall entertain the
u ,u luu U4 vrunta.-.nu
, I have already shewn that! the elections were
properly and legally held throughout the Brig

proceed to shew that had this delay, so much
harped upon, been intentional, (which I will yet
fully prove was not the case) that, still my re
turns were legal, and also made in due time.
This position might be established in every
reasonable mind, by the simple statement of
fact, that my returns were made to the Adju.
tant General some time befdre, the supplemen
al, or amended returns of pen. Neal reached
Raleigh : and both law and justice required that
this amended return should be made, before the
elections throughout the Division could be com-
'P,e!e'?nd befori !b AJu,ant general could
make known officially ; the result, and before,
therefore, the Governor had the power to issue
a Commission. Now, that this proposition may
be fully understood and provqd, it becomes ne
cessary: for me to show, that the first orders is
sued by Gen. Neal was not saich as the law re.
quires, as fo the counties of! Montgomery and
Stanly. And in establishing; this proposition I
shall not attribute lo Gen. eal any improper
motives or any unfairness in jthe matter, or in
dulge in' such language as qnse or two newspa
pers have towards me, even Vhen I have done
my duty; language which, I pannot, out of self
respect. 'stoop to notice., J
But I will suppose it was Hhe result of an
honest error, which, to his creidil, was promptly
corrected under the second order of the Adju
tant General, by his, (Neal,)! issuing legal or
ders to Montgomery and Stanliv, and by his sub
sequent amended return ; without which, I re
peat, the Governor had no jright to issue a
Commission to any man. 1
Well, now to tho law and th testimony. The
40th seci of the act of l836-r;37, requires the
officer issuing orders, to jodge said orders in the
Post Office properly directed written on the
back 44 public Service,? witH his name and
2rade, arid this is a sufficient order in law.
Now was this law complied! with ? I say it '
was nol.-r I insist thai lhe only orders issued in
the first instance, were nothing but newspaper
notices, and that these notices never reached
the Colonels of Montgomery and Stanly at all.
So that ihey could not vote in those counties, or
even know, what day the election was oidered
on. And 1 "assert this on the authority of offi.
cial communications froni'the Colonels of those
counties, directed to Gov. Manly, in the form

vision, they had been, cured by a knowledge of
the time of the election, by the different Reci- '
ments having actually voted, and by no com- i

Now in this
case, there was a remedy and 1
the law 1 have alluded to points it out. With-
out such icmedy, candidates for this office would
beat the mercy and entire disposal of subal-

parts of a Division and suppress it in others, just
as they might desire to serve a friend, or grossly

So far as any farther defence of my official
arts is necessary, I might stop, did I rot stand
pledged to show, that my delay in making re
turns, although of no importance, was never
theless, unintentional ; and were it not, that,
upon this very point, Col. Wheeler holds the
following tanguage in his letter under consid
eration: I waited until the Legislature ad
jourued, and I then learned that Gen. Leach
had made no report, and had declared he would
make none." 'ow what mispresentations in
termeddlers may have made to him, I care not ;

ment is untrue : that it not only carries on its
face, when understood, its own refutation, but
that there are other undeniable proofs of its
Now, the readers of the passage of Colonel
Wheeler's letter, which I have just quoted, as
well as those parts of it demanding, 'without any
cause, but with cool effrontery, a Court Mar
tial on me, would very naturally suppose, (es
pecially after the news of the overwhelming
avalanche from Davie.) that the redoubtable
Colonel had swept my Brigade, 44 horse foot and
dragoons !" That after having received such a
vote in Davie, as excites his own astonishment;
and that too, where he had never, never been ;
but where only the blasts of Fame's trump had
sounded his name, and proclaimed his military
genius; surely it would be supposed that his
presence, in the other counties of my Brigade,
together with his flaming speeches' on War and

cannot bo complained of therefore, up to that

little time and save the trouble of transmitting i
by Mail, and that I would have it to do ome

and said as 'fo Montgomery and Stanly counties,
and both thought lhat Gen. Neal ought at once
to amend his return, and give those counties the
privilege of voting. On separating, I told him
I would brinf up the papers whenever I thought i
of it at my. quarter-. Accordingly, a Tew day

matter, Irom beginning to end, and I can, at I
have shewn, establish them in every .material
part, by others than myself, shewing that Col.

are gratuitous and withmit foundation. "j

Une word in renlv to the article in tha
" Lincoln Courier," for 1 hvo heard from re
liable sources that the Editor ol that paper
is" a gentleman, and therefore, il ii mr dutv
to notice one
sentence which be uses.
It reads thus : ''The Governor seein
Gen. Neal's report that Stanly and Montcnm
er.V had not voted, although legal orders to yota
nad een duly sent out by Gen. Afaf, and
L.pah still withholding his report instead, of

man and I have heard as much of him I
hope he will retract ibis language, since I havo

On a more attentive perusal of the article in
the "Carolina Republican,4' I find it substan
tially, a transcript of Col. Wbceler'tTfeffer,
except the language is eearse and abusive. I
shall not therefore reply lo it: for I desire to
have nothing to do w'tih that indicidual.ot his
dirty dollar sheet. i
To complete this miserable Quatllebum farce,
I have understood that Col. Wheeler applied
to the Supreme Court for a Mandamus, to com.
pel Gov. Manly lo issue a Commission lo him,
(notwithstanding he had been ijeaten.) jlAnd
if he never knew it before, he there, probably
learned, that the Supreme Court had no Jims
diction in the regulation of our Militia system :
and that the verdict rendered against bim,,by
the officers, of the 4th Division, would not be
diustrbed by that high Tribunal. - J
Now, if the leHersvriiten, and the proceed
ings had in this matter, have been carried on
for a political harvest, I think, the crop to be I
gathered will be exceedingly small; for Gov. J
Manly's reputation for virtue, integrity, and in.
tellectual superiority, is too well established to
be thus affected, or fo need any defence ;, and
these, with other sterling traits of character
make him an honor to the State ; and the good ,
old Mother, mindful of-her noblest sons, hat
in return, honoredhim. f '

newspaper squibs, have been intended, indi
rectly lo injure me, politically, or at an officer
or otherwise, lhe failure will be most bumilia-:

For as to myself, I am unpretending, unarnbi.'j
