i POLITICAL FANATICISM,
' The expression of sentiment by the
Whigs o? Philadelphia, at the meet in? at
the Museum, on the evening ol the 27lh
ullirjio.ser ms to have caused great an
noyance ton few professing Whig! jour,
nalsjhut whose course must soon place
therrj among the open, as they appear now
to tyt among I he ecret foes, of the present
Whig National Administration. They can
discover nonnecessity for the holding of
iucfijameetingto respond to the senti
ments o I President Fillmore's Message
and eem to regard it as an act of unpar
donable temerity fo the Whigs of Pbila
delpnia to declare their alleginnce to the
lawsjof the land, and o recommend the
repeal of so modi of-our State laws as ob
. struct the due executioner ihe recent acts
of Congress. One of these editors ven
turfs! to give the reason lor the faith that
is within him, and it is tothiseffect: that
our public pris jns were erected by the
money of the people, for he incarceration
of felons and a I those who would in itfny
maVjnT Arcfvats won the ritrhts tif ih
community" IjJut he fails to inform us
' whkV he means by the eights of the com
,rn unity ;H and leaves us to infer that he
means those rights which are secured by
ihejeonstitution and the laws. It that in
ference be corn et, we should like to know
of the (worthy ditor whether, according
to ds own nojions, the Norristown jail
wa$ not erected for Jilt "incarceration"
j vbri,re undertakes to Mress upon the
-rights T of a ciljizen of the United States
?Vby 'Harboring r concealing" his runa
way; servant. That right" is just as
much Secured lp the owner of the slave by
law, as is the worthy editor's "right" to his
hodse and lot secured to him by law.
Again: ihe editor is aware thata white
apprentice in Pennsylvania, owes service
I to master tor the stated period men
tioned; in his indentures, and that the taw
; requires him to perform that service. He
is lurther awantlmt it such apprentice
be disobedient. J and insubordinate, the
' "may cause such punishment by im
prisonment of llit; body and confinement at
hard labor to be inflicted on mm." as his
oflerije shalr deserve ; and that if he absconds-
jnto another county, any jostice of
the'pj-ace may cause him to be arrested
nnd Committed to the common jail, unless
he iyjll consent to return to his master or
: mistress. And the editor knows, nlso, that
if ah person " harbor ,Q6nceals or enter-
Jins an absconding arrentrce. our laws
subject such person to severe penalties.
Such are the remedies which are provided
for ihe editor's benefit, when his white ap
prentice boy or girl absconds from bisser
vic'and according to his ethics, all this
lis Very just, and right, and human. - He
hrdsj ;no tears for the poor unfortunate in
carcerated' white apprentice boy ; but
Avhetj a nero boy runs away frm his
master, and s. placed in the same jail
where perhnjp$ bis own runaway white
apprentice girl mjay be; until the right of
the master to tnkn him is legally decided,
all hit indignation is aroused, and his sym
pathies are awakened for the negro, and
ibejw'puld dissolve! the Union rather than
tolerate the outrage onising a Pennsyl
yahia jail for such a purpose ! Will the
editor favor us with an explanation of
the difference beUyeen the legal rights of
the Norristown master of the apprentice,
aHd.jhpse of the Virginia master of the'
slay' : It is the law wich permits him to
arrest arid to holcl his absconding appren
tice; and it is the law which permits the
slaveholder to arrest and to hold his run
away slave. Whyiheii abuse Whigsand
Impugn their motives for declaring their
allegiance to the laws ol Ihe land, and for
manifesting their determination to snstHin
thoj policy of the Whig National Admnisv
iration.
If the editor refe
rred to.and a few others,
la similar course:
who have pursue
-r - : :
sincere in their professions of the) VVhicr
r
faith, and wish to continue to act with
tbiVhig party, t icy will; devote their
columns .to som more useful purpose
man mar oi apusing and misrepresent
ing the Whigs of Philadelphia, an(j pro.
Rioting the tteasohble schemes of a few
fanatics Avho ar utterly regardless of
their;, duties as good citizens. These
djsrg ani2ers are the avowed ememies of
President Fillmore s administrntion, and
!?W 8ynpa'hy ;h the Whig party.
Let those professing Whigs beware how
they mix up in the meshes of these disor.
6am2ers They cannot co operate with
themi, and yet preserve their integrity as
WfM6- ? As honest men, they will have
to make a public recantation of the prin
clplesof the panyj to which they profess
tj belong, and frankly and boldly avow
their hostility to the men and measures of
ttm Whig National Administration, or a
JnJon that abominable heresy which de-
' niesallegiancetlothe constitution and laws
of our country, and cease to assa;! those
vbOdo support that administration.

ARREST OF THE MDr6eRER.
Gov. Reid. on informaiion, promptly issued
his proclamation offering 8400 re1 ward for ihe
arrest of the murderer of Tilghmaii Hunt. And
thrauihoriiies of northern cities were immedi.
ately telegraphed. These eflortt it is gratify,
ing to ascertain, have proved successful. We
learn at a telegraphic despatch bat been re
ceived in Ralegh from New York, that Pin
was arrested in that city and is now in prison
awaiting the orders of the Governor of N. Car
hna. Piit will therefore probably be sent
back and tried at Cumberland Superior Court
to be held the first week in May Jnext.
An investigation was had before Judge Elii
at Nash Superior Court, and we tare informed
hat his examination resulted in ascertaining
important facts in connexion with the murder"
and the recovery of a portion of the effects oi
the deceased. A man named Armstrong, of
Rocky Mount, Edgecombe county, had a bill
or sale of some of the negroes, for a very in
adequate consideration, and was on the point
f leaving wiih ihem for .Richmond, when he
was arrested and imprisoned, but admitted lo
bail upon examination. Six of the negroes
have been sent to jail at Fayelteville two ,f
them, a man and woman, committed for the
murde,,3nd ihe others committed as r maways
and witnesses. About $780 of money, a car
r.vall and horse, buggy and horse, saddle, gun,
&c. hive been recovered. There is yet a con
siderable amount of money in the hands ol
men who probably know too much to be inno.
ceni. The skill and promptnest of Judge El
In in Ibe investigation are spoken of in hih
terms. I P
We learn from the FayetteVille Observer
IhaLlhe body of the deceased has been placed
in a Patenj Metalie Burial Case, to await the
wisnes ot his Iriends in Guilford!
P. S. We learn that the remains have been

Mr. Editor: Wi? had quite a refresh
ing exhibition here last night. A proces
siort by theSpns o(T mperance with trans?
parencifs. an excellent oration in the
Court bouse to a large attentive audier.ee.
by Dr. Robert Hack'et, and some sensible
and impressive remarks by the Rev. Mr.
Purvis ; and I hare nn Hnnht th m.t
upon ihe good cause will be exce lent.
We w ere joined, upon the occasion, by a
goodly attendance of our brethren from
Alexander and Ashe counties, many of
whom had come expressly for the occa
sion. Our Division is; growing, and seems
be on a permanent basis. It had already
done much good, and! promises to dp much
more. J cannot refrain from giving you
an imperfect sketch i)f a scene that took
place at the conclusion of our exercises
last night, which wis inimitable in its
character :;

into the room with the crowd, and one of
them from Ashe county confessing to the

at length, fell nrostrtir m th fl.
There he lay, stretched at his full length,
and afier the inconsiderable stir produced
by his downfall, lie vs for a time quite
unnoticed. After Mr. Pu

outer circles of the crowd, enveloped in a
v.,iv. wiiu uis nai in hand, he spoke as
follows:
"Gentlemen and 1mA

hold that no one ought to attempt address
ing so respectable an audiance as this,

who is making a much more forcible
speech upon thesubject of lemperance
than I could hope lo make, with ever so
much preparation. . While, therefore, the
gentleman from Ashe has the floor. I must
not intrude." The effect was irresistible
even the fellowsnfferers, some of whom
were aspiring towards the floor them
selves, joined heartily in the laugh, and
the gentleman from Ashe' is not like
soon to hear the last of the joke. The
odds have been against king Alcohol to

HOW SHALL WESTOP THEM ?
And now the question , how we are to do
117 We feel the responsibility-we bav the
deS,re fr we all exclaim wi:h Johnny Hodges.
O ! what a curse ! ,
, 1;. 1 h LmVral 8"asionist says go and talk
kindly with the vender, and set before him all
the evil he is doing in ihe wo.ld. and ibe sol.
emn respons.b.luies resting ,, him. and he
will give up Ms business. ; He will, perhaps, i(
he dues not drink himself, and his bean is not,
as Mr. Gouyh says, crusted all over wiih the
tears and ighs of his bleeding victims.
2. Dissuade all men fVom drinking, and then
his trade will die out, and he will go into bel.er
business. When, even on this principle, will it
die out ? How many will he send first o an
u , timely grave,? And how many drunkard,
will saiiy him before lie will ojve up? Die
out ! Not while hecan get one'poor dru. kard
to come and do his chores for him, and hanc
couiid his kr. and revile the temperance men!
While the traffic continues, it will make mod.
erate drinkers, and moderale drinkers will
make drunkards. The supply creates the de
mand. All see it. All know it.
3. Commit ihe work to! God, and then you
w. be sure of ii, for, in ihe millennium, .here
wril be no distillers nor ruinsellers. The very
thing we are alter ; but how is ihe world mbe
converted while the traffic cominues. turning
thousands and millions, even on the Sabbath"
into scoffers and blasphemers ? Thi is sub!
smu.mg an end for the means, an end lo ac
eomplish an end. The employment of inade
quade means is a wasie.
What removes olher great evils ? What de.
livers the land from burglars and counterfeit,
ers, and men who would, for plunder, burn
town, fiid cities ? Law ;! prohibitory and pro
tective law. And what reason in the world is
there for applying this to one kind of evil and
not to anoiher? Why prevent a man from
killing your son wiih a knife, and suffer him to
kill him wiih a slow poisob ? Why put a man
in Slate prison for lilelor burning up a home
while ha goes free in kindling a fire which
shall burn up body and soul? Why deal se.
verely with a man who should maim his fellow,
being, or lake away hi reaon.xand bring him
upon the town, and say nothing to him who, for
party gain, is hlling uo nil and almiihiiiio.,
knd lading ibe people wiih heavy burdens
11. . i i . . J . .
tic mo nas come wnen this subject mut be
looked at in every State; and men of every
class must feel their responsibilities.
There are two great obstacle totheaccom
plishmeut of the work whicb God requires. A
large class of ibe commuriitylove to have it as
it is. They profit by the traffic, or they live in
the indulgence of base appetite. They are
willing the land should be cursed for their gain.
The rum power and the vine influence isler
rific. Our legislators are afraid of it or allied
lo it. Another is found in the dreadful apaihy
of hundreds and thousands who say, w bat is
all this lo me 7 am I my brother's keeper ?
This very apathy destroys j in lh legislator all
ens of responsibility. Journal.
FIRE.
y We regret to have to state, that on
Thursday last, the Female Academy in
this place, was destroyed by fire and no
thing now remains of the building but the
smouldering walls. The building look
fire about 10 o'clock arid was caused by
a spark from j the basement chimney
(where a fire had been kindled to burn up
some rubbish) and the roof being very dry
and the wind high, the fire spread with
great rapidity.! Capt. Wm. Davidson.
Who was occupying th building as a res
idence, fearing that some accident might
be caused by the chimneyYakfng fire, had
examined that part or the roof, but see
ing no sign of. tirejie presumed all was
safe and went into the house. He had
not been there long before he was inform-t-d
that the roof In; front was on fire. ; He
immediately went with a bucket of wa
ter to the garret. He found the fire had
commenced extendinghe threw the wa
fer on and went ' Ibf more this he done
several times, hut having no assistance at
hand, the building n a manner being iso
lated. and the fire spreading rapidly, all
his efforts were unavailing. When it be
came apparent that there was no hope of
saving the building every exertion was
used to save the furniture, and we believe
nearly every article was removed. Mr.
Davidson is very thankful for the assist
ance rendered him on the occasion.
We hope, this accident will show to our
citizens the importance of having a well
organized Fire Company, and also ihe ne
cessity of hnving a pore abundant supply
oT water. The Engine appears nlso to
be out of order. Our citizens had better
take warning from this occurrence and
prepare efficiently to resist thin destruc
tive element, lest n more terrible acci

We have already said that this attack is unnmmt
To sustain that declaration we here present the "scrap"
which is alluded to in the foregoing article :
Small Pox in Charlotte. We see that the board of
Health report one new case of Small Pox for the week
ending March 4ih: This was a negro bov, who was
taken to the hospital on the 2ih ul. True Southron.
The " Lincoln Republican" copied this " scrap" from
the "Snuthton" " Nest" of the 8lh March; and we
copied it from that paper into the Watchman" of the
20th March. So that, instead of there being " some
month or so" from th time of its first appearance in
the " Nest," to the date of its re-publication in this p
per, onlyticelte days intervened.
But the only point in the whole business for which
we care a grote, is the charge that we intentionally
omilU-d " dates," thus taking particular pains to leave
