It is important that this stpp should be ta
ken to secure a more thorough and efficient
organization of the democratic party than
now exists for th reasons:
1st. That each association shall keep the
other well informed cf the condition of par
ties. 2d. That authentic a i fl correct informa
tion may be disseminated far and wide.
3d. That the returns, whether of State
or federal elections, may b? circulated in a
form authentic anil official, end which can
be relied upon by our friends for an) pur
pose, especially to counteract the false im
pressions which may becreated by the pub
lication in the whig journals of the results
It is already ascertained that that party
have a well organized system of falsehood,
not only in the publication of erroneous re
turns of elections, but by the publication of
tract's and documents. The whig and
5ome of the neutral papers in every section
of the Union attend lo the first branch of
the fraud, and the congressional whig cen
tral franking committee at Washington are
attending to the latter, by publishing and
disseminating one set of opinions by Mr.
Clay for the South, and another set lor the
manufacturing and abolition districts of the
North and West; also documents for the
North making Mr. Folk a free-trade man,
and documents for the South making him
a tariff man. These frauds have been de
tected in this city; therefore we warn our
friends to guard against, them. Discredit
everything coming from a whig source,
until substantiated by information derived
from those whose effort will be not to de
ceive, but to enlighten with the truth
We do not hesitate to say that the election
returns which have bf en. and are being
published in the Globe can be relied on by
our friends for any purpose. They are as
accurate as unofficial return's can pos-ibly
be, some of which, from necessity, being
copied from whig papers. The official ic
turns will be publihrd in the Globe as
soon as they are received. When the or
ganization proposed by this nonce is com
plete, the facility for getting the correct!
returns will be such as is defied We ap-j
peal to the de nioei3cy i'1 those sections of
country where no associations exist to
forthwith organize and report in accord
ance with the above. We make this ap
peal not from any doubt of the .strength of
our cause, or that we have not the num
hers to carry it on to victory. We must
not despise the enemy however corrupt or
eak they may be; but knowing them to
be weak and corrupt should make
"s more vigilaut and active to guard
against the unfair and Unjust means to
which they will from necessity resort to
cover t heir weakness. We can assure our
mends that that we have no doubt Polk
a"d Dallas will be elected. We must,
nevcrthelcss, do our duty. We make the
appeal with another view; that channels
way be established through which we can
develop to the American people one of
the most corrupt and villanous schemes ev
er concocted by any party which has been
on foot by whiggery to subjugate le
. publican liberty, and bring our institutions
"Own to the footstool of the tyranny of the
Did World. We do not fear the scheme,
jts exposure will not only defeat its object,
bH will overwhelm the men and the party
Who conceived, and are attempting to ma

P. S. This is to give notice to the de
mocracy, that the whig central committee
m tins city are publishing document pur
porting so show the votes of Mr Polk
which in fact, ifthevdonot io all cases
actually falsity his votes, suppress some of
the facts connected therewith, and thus
give a false aspect to them. It will be-the
duty of the democratic party in every sec
tion o( the country to discredit lhsc doc
uments, denounce them as vile whig slan

Washington to the executive committee of
the democratic association to send the real

FOR TIIE TAKBORO PHESS. t,:
What must l e the feelings of him who
is condemned to die? That the creator of
man has only placed him here in this
world in order that he may prepare him
self for another, is a question lhat does not
admit of a doubt. The road to death is a
dark and gloomy one; even when he, who
has to travel it, feels within himrclf that
he is attended hy a guide that will make
his journey a safe one. Hut if t he scenery
on that road presents such an aspect to one
under Mich circumstances as these,- would
it not be horiible to think on it where the
traveller has every reason to believe, that
be is lo travel it without any pilot lo direct
his course. At any time whatever, when
our Creator through his infinite wisdom
should see fit to call us hence, the parting
with those here on earth who are near and
dear to us must be attended with the ut
most grief and bitterness. Hut how much
more heart rending must that parting be
to one, who feels that he has been the
cause of his own departure from this
Mark, the prisoner at the bar, who has
taken the life of his fellow-man, see with
what anxiety of mind he looks first on the
face of his counsel, and then on those of
the jury before whom he is arraigned. He
sees pictured on the countenance of his
counsel a look of sadness, which it is not
accustomed to wear; he there sees a doubt
resting, whether or not he will be cleared
of guilt. After he hears the defence of
his counsel and that of his opponent, his
attention is then solely directed to the jury,
watches them with that earnest nesss with
which a tiger watches his prey; he endeav
ors to see if he can judge from their looks
whether or notbe will be declared to be
innocent of the crime alleged against him.
He sees the jury leave the box with
heaviness of heart with which thev could
not be bound were they conscious' of tho
prisoner's innocence. He is now ordered
back to his lonely cell, where he thinks
first of his counsel's defence and then that
of his opponent. Even the rustling of the
wind without strikes terror to hisliearl for
fear it may be the agitated step of the offi
cer coming to announce to him his sad and
lamentable fate, that the little hope which
he once entertained of pardon is now for
ever dispelled. This dreadful suspense is
put to an end, by the unlocking of the pri
son door and the entrance of his keener.
For a moment he forgets that, the chains j
are about him, he makes an effort to rise!
but he is suddenly checked by their heavy j
weight. With a hurried voice he asks ihej
keeper what is his fate? All doubt is now i
dispelled by the silence which prevails, j
Nc feels that he could not now be consoled j
hy her, who amidst all his misfortunes;
and disappointments had been as a stay to!
him. The prisoner is ordered to go again !
before the Court and receives, lint sen-!
lencc which it has seen fit to pass on him "
Here he loses what little nerve he had but
a moment before, his body becomes weak,
he feels a faintness which he never felt be
fore; but by the aid of his attendants he
now ascends for the last time the steps
which lead to the Court room, where all is
hushed, in silence around. He takes his
scat in front of the Judge, who rises up be
fore the overwhelming audience with that
seriousness and gravity, which should ever
characterize one in his position, lie tells
he prisoner that it his painful duty to an
nounce to him that the Court has decreed
thai he should be hung upon the gallows..
All doubt is now certainly dispelled fro-m
his mind, even the most faint hope which
he might have entertained before this, is
now forever blasted. The short time
which is now allotted him to live, passes
away like a flash of lightning across the
broad and expanded heavens. He is car
ried again to his lonely cell, there to mourn
his unhappy and wretched condition. The
volume of his past life is now suddenly
opened to his mind, he traces its leaves up
to that fatal time when he took the life of
his fellow man, there his reason seems lo
have deserted him. He asks himself how
could ho have acted thus rashly, it occurs
to him that his reason was then overpower
ed by that damning vice ardent spirits
Ah, he exclaims to himself, if I had not
suffered the bitter contents of that cup to
pass throirgh my lips, my situation now
would have been different. While in this
reverie his meditation is disturbed by the
entrance cf the minister of the cosncl, who
and the public generally, that he
received From New York, his
Supply of Spring and bnmmev

smooth the pillow of death, it only has a
tendency lo harden it.
Hut at last the sun rises on him for the
last time. At an early hour of that day
tile aged parcnls come to bid a final fare
well to that son, who had been the cause of
their lying in an untimely grave. They
go forth with a feeble and tottering step to
take -him by the hand for the last time.
The-, mother in this her greatest hour of
ttial exclaims, my son, are you prepared
to meet that Judge before whom you are to
stand at the last day of the world? Here
his tongue cleaves to the roof of his mouth,
he is unable to speak, but his silence is suf
ficient evidence of what his answer would
be. The mother lets go his cold and icy
hand, and with clasped hands and her eyes
directed toward heaven, exclaims, my
God, was it for this that I brought him in
to the world was it for this that 1 watch
ed over him in his infancy, when all -Was
hushed in silence around. Ah no, she
says, I gave him good counsel but then he
would not be advised by me, he thought
he knew best; but now, when it is too late,
he plainly sees the folly of his ways. He
now knows that had he taken my advice,
his situation might have been different.
That parting which the criminal most
dreaded has now come to an end. He is
now taken by his keeper from his lonely
cell for the last time, and seated on that
box in which he is soon to be laid a lifeless
corse. The hangman's halter is about to
he tied around his neck, he mounts the
scaffold from which he is soon to be dashed
into eternity. Minutes novv pass with him
like seconds. The sheriff with a trembling
voice tells him that he has but one minute
to live, that is the only brittle thread that
binds him lo this world. He brings his
last breath, and the sheriff strikes the fatal
ajblow, and all is over.
He could no longer in this world live,
Hut still he was afraid to die;
f ie felt what an account he had to give,
To a sin avenging God on high.

Nayiifs. We ask the attention of our
brethren, one and all, to the suggestion
thrown cut in the article, published in an
other column, from the "Harrisburg U
nion," in relation to party names. The
policy of ouV opponents, under the lead
of James Watson Webb, in assuming the
name-of" i4 whig" was, in the beginning.
obviously dishonest and hypocritical
It was the policy ol making up, if possible, '
by thy popularity of a name, what they
lacked in popularity of principles. They
knew th;t their system of measures wras the
system of the old federal party, and they
novv know it. For the name of Whig, as our

Mn'ed by their conduct down to the pre
sent day. They brought discredit on the
sacred name of "whig" . by their violence
and carousals in lS-10 They brought
discredit on it by associating it with exhibi
tions of raccoons and other wild animals.
They brought discredit on it, many of
their prominent leaders, by Open threats
of force and insubordination They now
profane it by catling themselves coons
nod Whigs indifferently thus making it
synonymous with that thieving, -filthy ani
mal. And yet, no withstanding all this,
they sci uple not to defame the memory of
deceisd palriots of the Revolution. For
party purjK)Sfs to inj ire liov. Polk, they
scruple not, in the lace of positive pro f
that Ezekiei Polk was a '"whig of '76,''
as a commissioned officer, and bore arms
in the service of his countiy, to denounce j
him as a lory ! Falsely and for political j
eiii ci, rtppi opi LLiug the name lo themsel

Look at old Mecklenburg, the birth

dependence. Her vote is 1 182 democrats
to Id 1 federalists, and her census shows
only ISO persons (out of a population of
more than 18,000) who cannot read or

population of more than 13,000, there aro
only 5!J7 who are unable to read or write.
