Mjt. Editor : The miserable and contemptible
outcry, so befitting t demagogue, the horizon of
whose mind is not larger than an oyster shell, of
Central Influence" and Central Clique," will
have its day like every other humbug which is got
ten up to deceive the ignorant, and. create section
al prejudices in our State. . One who lias observ
ed the progress of events during tlie last ten or
fifteen years, will readily eonalude that all sensi
ble men might see in them enough to sicken those
who have the honor .of , the State at heart, with
- everyjVng calculated to alienate the different parts
of our old Commonwealth from each, other, ; , Bu'.
no ! just as the two great political parties in the
State are about to sacrifice their party prejudices
on the altar of their country, and with praisewor
thy magnanimity unite their energies and minds
for the improvement of the whole State, we hear
the cry of n East and WW Cettfrt and Ex
tremity" i How far such considerations are to in
fluence any portion or tho People of the State, is
yet to be seen. That it will be used by Dema
gogues fur personal advancement, and to gratify
tha malignity of disappointed ambition, is not
doubted.- Are we not one people I Can the West
do without the East or the East without the West?
Can wise and patriotic men, seeing tlie violent and
unconstitutional assaults which are made upon our
right from abroad, give their countenance and lend
their aid to these efforts to divide here at home,
and array one section of the State in bitter hostill-
. ty against another I : Do we not need union in our
Legislative Counsels on all questions of State pol
icy, to enable us to assume the high station a
mongst our sister States, to which our natural re
source so justly entitle n 1 : Even let it be con
ceded that .some sections have not obtained their
full share of State patronage and money, to any
thing to be gained by denunciation, and bitter re
crimination X Is this the proper way to remedy
the evil if such evil exista 1 Is such a course
worthy of being approved by patriotic men whs
look te the good of the whole State 1 Let it be
scorned by ail who deserve to be regarded ai
Narlk Carolinian looking around upon the en
tire State atene,Peoplfrr-nd whoso views are
not shut in by the interests of one or a few coun
ties, whether they are in the East, West, North,

that we can expect to develops the rich resources
of our State, and elevate her to the high moral and

appointed ambition should bars so far "o'ertcaped it- j

and under the dictation ef th most unreasonable ha
tred, that "excellence which it cannot reach."i '
We say we have puhlishrd th's production ; and
we regret that we were under promise to do so; for
Mr. C.'s own sake. ' If this is the best he can do if
this be a true mirror of hit heart if this be a correct
index of tlie secret workings witliin, we would ac'viae
him te refrain ia future from putting forth manifes
toes, and rely entirely upon tie ftt Sat hii hope of
gcing down, with a high and generous fame, to pos

plaints against friends and fees has been scattered,
era this, under the franking privilege, fore and aft f
vrr the country. ; tud, lis we honestly believe there is
much in it which is not true in point of fact, and
much more which does injustice to houorablo and pa
triotic men, in whoas-JetTfe we, in common with the
whole State, feel an interest and take a pride, it is
our right, as nasuredly it is our duty, to look itito and
expose it. We shall do (h's with the spirit of an in
dependent Editor who regards justice and loves liberty
ss much as inj" nian, though he may be a Jlfrmber of
Congreas who lias made some speeches and acquired
some notoriety. If our blows should be thought too
severe, it must be remembered that we have notsonght
to inflict them that he upon whom they fall has
courted them and that wo are retaliating in part,
for one of the . most unprovoked and systematic at
tacks which has ever been made upon a portion of lh
Public Press of North Ceroliiia nnd that, loo, for
what t , Why, forsooth, because the Editors "praised"
whom they chose; and because their assailant has not
receive quite his share of what he has been pleased
to term their "puffing !" This is "the head and front
of their offending;" and, so far as We are concerned,

1. He charges that the whole State has been at
great fault for years past, and claims to himself much
credit for the discovery. . In the first place he .plies
the lash mast unmercifully to the East and Centre for
having Kept up, ai be charges, a system of persecu
tion towards, and proscription of, the transmontanc
District, of which he claims to be the special repre
sentative and peculiarly "frocked1 defender.'-' Frem
this castigarion be exempts no one, not erven the De
mocratic members of the Legislature snd their con
stituents, who tendered him (heir moat gn&ous sup
port a few weeks since for Senator many of whom
have been for years in that bedy, , and have invaria
bly voted against those very projects the withholding
ef which he denounces as so very iniquitous;
In the second, place, imagining himself constituted
Censor of the whole State, he"dubs as'! Whit Slatei,"
'the people of bis own District, for their submission to
the wrongs he has depicted and their Represents'
tatives as nolcss fhan, in substance, the toolt, and in
express terms, ''tho servant ef the Central mana
gers." ' So far as his denunciation and charges of tn-
juitice, proscription, and wrong, fall upon the East
and Centre, "their shoulders are bread enough to bear
them, and they may with propriety repeat) what was
so pathetically said by Uuele Toby te the fly, "Go

S. S, natot, d.pitt hi abuse of tl:-rr Party in a cer
tain speech delivered in 1811-5! In regard to tlie
second branch of the charge, that the School fund
wasda.tiibuti'd iccording to Federal, instead of White
population, we would simply aak, how came this fund
into tlia Publio 'IWsuryT Was hot the basts of its
du-iribiitk.ii aiiioiist the States, by the General Gov
rniment, that of Federal population' Pid even the
mnkcst ulxjlitionuts euutend, in Cengress, that itshoulrl
be distributed according to White pnpulationT W'ou'd
Mr. C. huvi dared to contend for such a principle
luinsrlf, on the floor of Congress? Ought not the
benefits of Government to be distributed in prcytftiou
to its burdens? Do not the Centre and the East pay
nearly, if not quita, two-thirds of the taxes of the
State? Do not s, few eoustie iu-the East pay aa
much tax into the pul'lc Treasury ns ihe whole ef his
Congressional District? How, then , can any such de
n.aud be made, on th score of justice? But who, of
the East and Centre, voted to distribute the fund ac
cording -to federal ptpulutiou ? Not Wai'tf , alone,
hut Democrats, also, and many of the very menibe:
who gave him their support for Senator, voted, hut
some ten days since, arminst Mr. Gilmer') motion to
distribute that fund according to White population !
Mr. C. would net wisely to emulate tlie Clown he re
fers to, and wait uutil the water in the stream of con
tradictit ns which is before him passes off, that he may
" coss it dry;" for, if he makes many more leaps,
there may be a bruised nose, or broken bones.
3. We come now to consider that charge which the
Hon. Thomas L. Cliugman has clothed in all the pa
raphernalia of'the mod approved precedents of de
nunciation. 'Central Influencel" Ah! ''there's the
rub!" The "Centre" calls forth all the fire of his
most patriotic iudignation! It haunts him like the
ghost of the murdered Banquo did the Moody-handed
Macbeth. It will not "down at his bidding." Even
eight years ago,in 1840, it: was a most ter
rific thing .worse than a very night-mere upon the
rising genius of the Mountains more terrific than an
animal with claws behind and before, and all around
a real kyilra! Even then in 1840 this modem
Hercules proposed to organise a systematic resistance
te put down and exterminate thia Hydra thia Xenie
an Lion -'going about seeking whom he might de
vour." But the Hercules was too young, then. He
was iiot out of his political cradle, quite aud it was
tafk. enuiigh for him to strangle the serpent of discord
and dieafTttCtinn which hud em Vouched upon his ju
venile rights, in a certain "voluntary Caucus," in
which be showed his strength by sustaining "youug"
JUTr. Graham and " old " Mr. Mangum for the Senate,
aud "offering a resolution" with his own hand, re
commending to Generul Harrison a a suitable person
for a station in hia Cabinet, a certain "Mr. Badger,"
who is now not of sufficiently "eniiueiit, abilities" to
fill a place which Ae aspires to, aud which Ae, and
exactly elf em other; (Heaven save the mark!) would
more honor and adorn I ' But so it is tliis modorn
Hercules has grown up to full maul Kid, and he can
easily, if "requested" by Mount Atlas, bear up the
Heavens on his shoulders ' : ' . j
, But to the pamphlet, . The crime charged is, that,
for tweuty years past, the Senators havo been select
ed from the Centre ef tbe State from tho Counties
of Wake, Orange, Cumberland and Caswell. Well,
we really had thought, before, that these glorious
old Counties were a part of our good old Xorth State.
We have bceu taught to honor them, especially the
latter it bears a most honored uanie yes, the name
of one who never would have deserted his cause,
or turned hi back upon friends for an imaginary
slight. The people of those Counties are our fellow
eitiicns, one aud all, and wo are proud that they have
been abh to furnish so mauy honored names to grace
the history of our State. Would to God, they had a
thousand more such! Yancey, Murphy, Moore:
Cameron, Norwood, Toomerj Strange, Mangum, Gra
ham,' Badger are they not of North Carolina's
brightest jewels? Does any man rcgrst that they
have been honored by our people? Is there on in the
State whose soul is se narrow that he would erase
from the page of our history the name of such men?
Would he desire to lcep such hi obscnritydeprive
the State of their services and elevate some mental
pigmy to gratify the niggardly feelings and demands
of sectiana prejudices? When a system shall prevail ef
inquiring in what part ef the State on Wua born,
where reared, where h livei, and where he may
hereafter happen te (tee, before due respect and honor
can be paid to his genius, talents, and patriotism, then,
indeed, shall We be fit to become "White Slaves,nand
we shall require more than all the Boizarisscs and
Aristogiton that havo lived In "th tide of time" to
infueo into our souls a high and patriotic: spirit' of in
dependenceand State pride.'K ' Si
But it has pleased Mr.C. to bestow oh the Whig In

give th "Crosses of the Legion of Honor" to any
who had been caught bidding for promotion in the

WILMINGTON RAlLToAlT BILL
.-' This bill was und:r consideration in the House
'of Commons, the greater part of Wednesday.
At the night session, Mr. Rayner moved to strike
out of the 1 1th section of the bill, tho following
words, immediately preceding the prorise of said
section: viz. "Which it i hereby declared and
enacted, ahall be preferred to the mortgage and
pledge to be executed under th previous provis
ions of this act, and all such oilier mortgages and
pledges ns may have been heretofore executed by
said Company to secure the State against its lbs
by reason of her endorsement for said Company ;
and in case of default by laid Company, the said
mortgage se to be executed, shall be first satisfied,'
the question on which passed ill the affirmative,
Yeas 53, Nay 42.
Immediately after this yoto, Hr, J. M. Leach
moved its reconsideration : which gave rise to a
discussion ofjtrLanimatcd and exciting- character,
between Messrs. Rayner, D. F. Caldwell, Barrin
ger, Stanly,, Stevenson, Hayes, and others, in
which tho merits of the bill and amendment enter
All the other 6cicmcg ef Internal Improvement
being pending at this time in the Senate upon their
third -reading, we have no doubt delay upon thi
bill in the House i the consequence. , But Mr.
Rayner'g amendment It is said, will prevent the
laying the Wilmington road with heavy iron farther
North than Neuse river ; and ano'her amendment,
expected to prevail, will forbid the construction of
the Manchester road altogether.
We express no opinion of our own, upon this
subject, because we regard it extremely uncertain
in what shape the bill will pas, or whether it may
pass at all. We think all must stand or fall to
gether a state of suspense which muet soon end
now, as tlio seoaion will end en JfonJay. -

2. Resohcd, That tlie proceedings of the Con
vention, by which the Federal Constitution was
framed, clearly demonstrate that the institution of
slavery was maturely considered ; and that the U
nion of the States was finally secured by incorpor
ating into that instrument distinct and ample guar
antees of the right ef the Slaveholder. ;
3. ResolieJ, Tliat we view with deep concern
and alarm the constant aggressions on tlie rights
of the Slaveholder by certain reckloss politicians
of the North ; and thxt tlie recent proceedings of
Congress on the subject of slavery are fraught
with mischief well calculated to disturb tlie peace
of our country, and should call forth the earnest
and prompt disapprobation of every friend of the

directly or indirectly deprive the citizens of any of
the States, of tlie riglyf of eVigrating with their
slave property into any of thtrterrrtories of the
United State, and of exercising ownership over
the same while in aaid territories, will be an ar-
not only of gross Injustice and wrong, but the ex

spirit of the Constitution, and never contemplated
by the framers thereof. - v
5. Resolved, That while we do not intend here
by to be understood as conceding that Congress
has the power under the Constitution to enact a
law prohibiting davery in any portion of the terri

preserving the peace and promoting the perpetuity
of the Union, we are willing that the basis of the
Missouri Compromise should bo adopted in refer

Mexico and California, by extonding the line then
agreed upon to the Pacific Ocean.

and high regard fur the itereM of tlie Old Ni.ith,
may be ranked the gentleman whose name slant!
at the head of liii article. A? a member of Ihe
Judiciary Committee tho le.riiV committee of
the House, his Inborn fctve been untiring, and have
contributed Urgely to the most wefti! and keiieli-
i il results. In the patriotic efforts made in that
body to redeem the St:ite from her hntni'iating in
feriority to her sister Stal, ly an t-ntargrd and
iberal Stale policy, he has always been found in
ny to uthers what it could not itself enjoy. These
great measures have uniformly received from him
a hearty and emphatic Ays! , lie hits the appro
val, we doubt not, of his own lure hear! ; and
fortunately,, he represents an enlightened constitu-'
ency, from whom, when he renders his aci-emit.
he may expect to receive an approving " Well
done." While others have with timidity or, i.,l
is worse, contemptible deinugojueisin shrunk
from doing what they knew to he right, even d ''
rectly for the benefit ef their own immediate cof.

triotic neighbor! We can point with pride to ma

self-sacrificing herois.-n, have rushed to the rescue,
and dune what man could do, to save, and cherub,
and elevate the good old North tlie motlicr of us
Tho constituents of Mr. S. may latterly have
looked in vain for his name among the Yeas and
Nays on saveral vjty important questions. They
may be assured he did not dodge. He y;m there,
but wat. presiding over the House of .which .lie is
so distinguished and useful a nitniiler, in conse
quence of the protracted illness of Mr. Gii.i.UM,
their Speaker. In this position he could not vote
but his influence was felt, and his heart was in
the right place. We bespeak for 31r, S. from hi,
constituents, a hearty approval of his course. He .
1ms won golden opinions, and made many friends
during the Session. He ha n constituency to be
proud of ; and we may bo pardoned fur saying,
that they can well afford to be proud of lum.
IT In our account of the passage of the Slave
ry Resolution in tho Senate, we stated , tiut
Mesr. Thompson, of Bertie, and VV'illey were ab
sent. The statement was merely made to fill up
tho whole vote of the Senate, with no idea of im
puting to these gentlemen reluctance to vote on tlie
question. Mr. Thompson, we believe, had left tlie
City and Mr. Willey was confined to his room
by indisposition. Had he been present, he wouM
have voted for. the resolutions. . . .
JUSTICE AND FAIR PLAY. . .k , t -Our
readers will not fail to notice, how the Ed-
itor of the Standard, who- appears to be suclt a
great stickler tor justice, deal out the crti's'o to"',
others. He claims for Mr. T. II. Thomas, tlie ,.
Senator from Haywood, Macon and Cherokee, al
most the sole honor of the passage of the bill !;i
ley off and establish a Road from Salisbury West
to the line of the State of Georgia, in the Scnato,
' Now, we are of those who rejoice, when any- .
thing it done to improve and benefit the West :
and we wish we could tee ten time ae much ac
complished for them but let the honor fall on those
who rea'Zy dctervo it nd let not the Standard,
while complaining of the courso of another, at-
tempt to monopolise for his own, the whole merit 1
of thi measure. '
We assert, theu, that this hill was introduced '
by Mr. Weodfin, the distinguished Senator from
Buncombe District. It wat supported, by him
throughont, with his well-known tart and groat a
bility. General Patterson came up to his aid in
tho most efficient manner, the steady friend of that
section of the State, and of thi measure. To his
exertions sre the people here much indebteU for
the success of their Turnpike roaj.
Wo would by no means disparage .Ur. Thomas's ;
service but wa are sure, he was charged with
not boing friendly to this scheme, St first, though - -he
afterward supported it And we should havo '
said nothing about it but for this bold attempt to ,
saddle him with honors to which others are pre-.
eminently entitled. - finch ie the Standard's tense'
