THE SPIRIT ROUSING.
Have ye not heard in Summer's sky
The distant thunder rolling,
When flashed the lightning's blaze on
That spurn'd the cloud's controlling?
Have ye not heard ihe swelling roar
Of far off whirlwinds coming,
When gathered winds resistless pour
The prosirate forest crushing?
Have ye not seen the wild sea wave
Beneath the storm's commotion
Roll, whelming all in its deep grave
A vast unconqucred ocean?
So ye may hear the rising voice,
May see the bright eye fi shing,
May mark the wind's increasing force,
The unbounded billows dashing.
Of that stem spirit that awakes
When Democrats are moving,
And each strong heart his weapon takes,
lis strength in battle proving.
From hill to hill the cry is heard,
It rings through every valley;
The mountain foiest boughs arc stirred
With their far sounding rally.
Crash! let the iron arm come down
Like bolt of crushing thunder,
Let coon-skin, cob-house, cat and clown,
(Whiff measures!) ''stand from under!"
Or ye must search the proper place
For their remains, observe ye!
"The enamel house of all that's base
And infamous and scurvy."

STANDARD FOR THE CAMPAIGN
At the solicitation oi many ot our
friends, and for the purpose of doing all
we can to disseminate truih, and expose
the dangerous tendencies of Federalism,
vve propose to furnih the North Carolina
Standard to new subscribers for six months
during the campaign, at One dollar per
The campaign now opening is destined
to be one of extraordinary interest and ex
citement. All the Federal humbugs and
measures of 1840 Will be ag;iin brought
forward; and the contest will be between
democracy on the one hand, and a Bank,
a Tariff, Distribution, Assumption of Slate
Debis, on the other. In fine, it. will be an
open and hold renewal of the struggle be
tween the people and the money power
a struggle which has been going on, wiih
more or less intensity lor the last fifteen
years, and which must end eilher in the
triumph of the principles of democracy or
in ihe total destr uction of the public liber
ties. In this great contest we iniend to
bear an humble part; and we call upon the
democracy of North Carolina to rally, to
buc ve on their armor, to burnish the wea
pons of their warfare, and to enter the lists
with that h'gh and invincible determina
tion which knows no cessation of hostilities
until a permanent and glorious victory is
Democrats! are you ready for the con
flict? Are you organized in all your coun
ties, and neighborhoods, a'nd Districts? Is
the spirit which put Jackson irY power
aroused and panting for action? Your op
ponents are organizing in every quarter.
Their great leader is himself in the field,
giving his personal superintendence to
their operations, marshalling their forces,
and stimulating them by appeals to their
ambirjon, their cupidity and pride. All
his fortunes are staked upon the issue.
He knows that, if he falls now, he will fall
like Lucifer, never to rise again. Hi
followers are organizing Clubs in every
neighborhood of the Republic. Every
hour is burdened with the songs and spee
ches of his advocates, and every mail car
ries papers and documents for him to all
the nooks and corners of the land. And
shall we be idle? Shall North Carolina wait
for others to precede her in this glorious
sinter Depend upon it, we have no lime
to lose. L,et us, then, go to work, and let
every republican do his duty.
C30rdets from Democratic Associa-
wuns Will be promptly attended to. All
payments must be made in advance and
no subscription will be received on these
conditions after the first of July, as we do
not wish to extend the time! beyond the 1st

Important Bills Forlhcoming.-W e
find in the Globe of the 14th instant, the
captions of Ihe following important bills
which are shortly to be introduced into
the Senlte by our distinguished democrat
ic Senator, Mr. HAYWOOD. On the
14th instant Mr. Haywood remarked, in
his place in the Senate, that he rose for
the purpose ot starling some practical mea
sures to retrench the expenses and lo check
the spirit of proscription in our givern
m3nl. Congress had been in session mor
than thr'de months, during which lime he
had waited upon others; but as thev di.i
not see proper to start the suhje-t, he (Mr
II 'believed it w.is his duty to attempt
it, however great the labor and responsibil
ity of such a position. He therefore gave
notice that he would, at an early day, in
troduce the following bills:
"I. A bill to regulate and reduce the
salary of the President df the United
Mates, from and alter 4th March, IM5.
2. A bill lo regulate and reduce the sala
ries of the chief jusiice and jusiices of ihe
Supreme Court, and of the circuit and dis
trict judges of the United States, so as to
apply to all officers who shall be commis
sioned after the present session of Con
gress. 3. A bill to regulate and fix the salaries
of the Secielary and other officers and the
clerks in the department of State at Wash
ington. 4. A bill to regulate and fix the salaries
of the Secretary and other officers and the
clerks in the department of War at Wash
5. A bill to regulate and fix the salaries
of the Secretary and other officers and th
clerks in the department of the Navy at
6. A bill to regulate and fix the salaries
of the Secretary and other officers and the
clerks of the department of the Treasury at
7. A bill to regulate and fix the salaries
of the Postmaster General and other off
cersand the clerks in the Post Office De
partment at Washington.
8. A bill to regulate and fix the salaries
of Territorial officers, appointed by laws of
the United Stales, in the several Territo
ries. 9. A bill to regulate and fix the salary
of the Attorney General of the United
10. A bill to regulate the appointment
of the Secretaries of Slate, Treasury, War,
and Navv, and the appointment of the
Postmaster Generah so as to limit their
term of office to two years. "
Mr. Hjywood concluded his notice by
naiking, that if these bills met with the
favor he had a right to expect they would,
where the Senators on both sides were so
deeply pledged to the people to retrench
expenses and proscribe proscription, it
would encourage him to offer a separa'e
bill for each State in the Union lo regulale
Ihe salaries of the Federal Government of
ficers in the States. What he lacked in
ability, he ivould make up, as far as he
could, by industry and perseverance.
This is the substance of what he said or.
ihe occasion. The abilities of Mr. Hay
wood are fully equal to whatever' his con
victions of duty may prompt him to at
tempt, and his perseverance and industry
are sure guarantees that he will neither
shrink nor falter in this laudable effort to
retrench the expenditures and restore a
better tone to the operaiions of the gov
ernment. We are glad he has led off in
this important matter; and we call upon
those who have been so lavish in their
promises of retrenchment and reform, to
stand by him, and to show by their votes
that they are really the friends of ihe peo
ple, and the advocates of a plain and simple
administration of affairs, ib.

Gii'e hint a ride. There is rid fedture
more strongly marked in the rharacter of
the Southern people, than that of thei
proneness to open their hearts and homes
to strangers. Let a decent looking stran
ger but come among us, and that very fret
is considered as strong evidence of his
claims to confidence and respect. We do
not complain of this, for, on the whole, we
think it better lo suffer a little occasionally
than to fold the leaves of the heart over all
US generous impulses. These reflections
are suggested, ty seeing jn the Police Re
ports of the "New York Herald," that one
Hugh Luckey, of North Carolina, had goi
into a Scrape in that City, and been robbe
of his money. He invited some loafers in
to a porter house to drink, got mellow
andj by way of returning the compliment
iney sioie m; irom mm, and a new
Spanish Cloak, not yet paid for.
I his man, Luckey. came to Raleigh
from Norfolk, Va., about fourteen month
ago, opened a Considerable Hatter's estab
lihment, and so managed as to blind every
i i t .
oouy to nis true cnaracter, until he was
gone. He uniied himself (o a Religious
denomination here, joined the Temperance
Society, and so lar as was seen, certainly
behaved very well. Having secured the
confidence of the people, he began to en
large his operations, borrowed money, got
his fi tends to endorse at Bank, &c. One
thing was particularly observed about him
he sold as much as possible for Cash
and bought as much as possible on credit
Soon it became necessary for him, he said
logo lo the North, and such was the good
opinion ne nau inspireo, mat ne iounu no
difficulty in gelling friends to endorse'
note in Bank for S500. Having obtained
this amount, collected all his debts, atu
borrowed all the money he could, he left
in January for New York," since when
nothing certain has been heard from him
until this un-lucky scrape, in which he lo
his money. Mrs conduct w hile here, and
his deportment since, afford S'rong ground
for the inference, that he is an accomplish
ed hypocrite and a bad man; and the public
should be put on its guard against him.
Marriage of the President. A north
em paper stales that President Tyler was
about to be married to a daughter of Col
Gardiner. The sad accident which depri
ved that gentleman of his life, on board the
Princeton, will probably, postpone IhS

Suicide. We learn that Wm. Wallace
McFarland, of Laurel Hill, Richmond
County, N. C. committed suicide a few
days ago, in his own house, by shooting
himself in the head with a rifle. He had
long been addicted to occasional fits of in
temperance, and in that state was furiously
violent and uncontrollable, though in hid
sober intervals fjolile ahrj peaceable. H
had been indulging for rtihe days before
death, and in a fit of deliriurii tremens
put an e"ud to his existence;
