FOR THE TARBORO PRESS.
(Q A meeting; of the Democratic party
is invited on Tuesday of May Court, to
lectins a Demo
inanv oiiuiij,v.ihvh o
cratic elector for this district. The con
.h,,.t m plpptnr. will meet in
Tarboro' sometime ti e latter pirt of June
and it is the duty of Edgecombe to appoint
delegates in time for it.
House of Representatives, May 13, 1844
Dear Sir: I avail myself of the medium
of your paper to say to my constituent!,
that 1 have returned to Washington and
hope now to be able to remain to the end
of the session. I have been, as you know,
detained at home through the serious and
continued indisposition of my family. My
father is no more, and my wife still con
tinues quite unwell though somew hat bet
ter than she has been for some time prist.
I should have regretted my absence the
more seriously, but that I find nothing has
been done, that my presence could have
prevented, in any way affecting the partic
ular interest of our section of country.
1 arrived on the very day on which the
vote was taken for laying the bill for mo
dify ing the TarifTon the table though I
had the opportunity of voting to reconsid
er, which failed. This was a measure cal
culated to have lessened existing duties,
and at thesime time to have increased the
revenue and yet it was debated by the
votes of Southern whig, who say they are
for a tariff for revenue with incidental pro
tection. But I fear they were more dispo
sed to proiect and advance their political
party than the true interest of the country.
1 am happy to find that, should the health
of my'wife enable me to remain, I shall yet
have the opportunity of voting on the im
portant measures of the session, which are
now in readiness for action, and which
may be disposed of before our adjourn
ment, which will likely be about the mid
dle of next month.
The question of Texas annexation is the
great absorbing subject of the day and the
treaty for this object is now before the Sen
ate f.r ratification, and its fate mote than
It is a matter deeply affecting the wel
fare of the Union, and the security of the
South it remains to be seen what the peo
ple vvill have to say on the subject.
I find too the question of the Presidency
exciting renewed interest in consequence
of Mr. Clay's letter against annexation
and that of Mr. Van Buren not favorable;
but this matter, it is to be hoped, will be so
arranged at our National Convention,
which is to assemble in Baltimore on the
SJth inst., as to ensure harmony and suc
cess to the Democratic cause.
1 have thus notified my constituents of
my return to my post, where it will afford
me pleasure to attend to their demands
trusting, as 1 confidently do, that I do not
calculate too much on their liberal forbear
ance for my absence, when they shall know
the distressing cause of my detention.
Your obt. servt.
ARCHLD: H. ARRINGTON.
To the Editor of the Tarboro' Press.
this Congress he voles to sustain the same
tarifl, and when the reduction proposed
is in favor of his own constituents and in
accordance with his former public course.
Such we are forced to believe is the cor-
rupting influence of President-making.
The opponents of Texas, from Henry
Clay down to the most contemptiple abo
liiionist, interpose as the great ubstacle to
annexation, our national faith and treaty
obligations with Mexico. While we
think this a mere" refinement and a shcr
pretext in all who are urging it to cover
other objections which are not tenable and
which they are afraid to avow, we pro
pose to show that the very authors them
selves, (Clay and Van Buren) of this oh
jection, have heretofore acted in direct op
position to it themselves, and never discov
ered the existence of such an obstacle 1111
til it was neresiry to protect or conceal
their other objections to the annexation
And when the leaders are driven by their
own precept and example from thi strong
hold, their more humble followers ma)
well give it tip.
During the years 1S25, and '27, and
'29, while we had a treaty of friendship
and amity with Spain, and Spain had never
recognized the independence of Mexico,
and was then waging war, invading her
lands and waters with fiVe's and armies,
Mr. Clay and Mr. Van Buren each propo
sed in the above quoted yeais, during these
open nobilities, and in disregard of our
treaty with Spun, three feveral limes to
acquire Texas by treaty with Mexico. II
ihat was no violation of oor treaty and na
tional faim with Spain, then Mexico can
not complain now. If Clay and Van Bu-
len wtre ri;ht then, how can they be right
now? Texas was then uns?illed, now she
is settled by our citizens. Then no foreign
interference was threatened to justify any
deviation from the straightst paihs of hon
or anil justice; now we are almost compel-
d in sell-defence for our institutions to
take it, lest it should go under foreign influ
ence to our great disadvantage.
But the case is even stronger still. It is
contended by thee politicians, that Texas
cannot acquire any of the de jure rights of
a sovereign nation till recognized by Mexi
co, the mother country. Then surely
Mexico, being oiigiuilly a province of
pain, could not acquire these same rights
till recognized by Spain; and she nevr
became the sovereign of her soil till the re
cognition by Spain in December, 130,
and before ihat time Texas had revolted
and became herself independent, and nev
er did pass under the Sovereignty of
Our attpmpt to purchase Texas from
Mexico, acknowledges only our opinion at
I hut time that it belonged to Mexico. But
it certainly docs not interfere with or
abridge in the le;st, the rights of 'Texas,
who was no party to the proposition.
These views are ably sustained by "Ran
lolph of Roanoke." a writer in the Rich
mond Enquirer, from whom we take the
following historical facts.

Yankee brain the scheme originated, hut
we first saw it in the Roanoke Republican

feci their object. And if they lose their
paper and ink by the result of the election,
ihere is no doubt some contribution from
Clay clubs to remunerate their losses in
the common cause.
We hope that no Democrat has been
week enough to suffer this trick played on
him to risk his money for a p;per which
he would not pay postage for, nor even
read if laid gratis on his table. A gull
taken in this liap would ft el as comfortable
