' y assembled in the Hall of the House of
Commons, agreeably to notice, a half-past
i o'clock, P. Mi
, : The proceedings of the previous meet
ing having been read, the President intro
duced Alpheus Jones, Eq.- who address
ed the Association some thirty-fiv c or forty
" minutes, on the importance of knowledge,
scientific and practical, to the perfection
and just elevation of Agricultural pursuits,
and the advantages of associated efforts in
accomplishing agricultural -improvements.
His address was replete with instruction ,
and cogent argument, beautifully illustrat
ed, and was listened to by the audience
". with profound attenlion and manifest evi
dences of delight.
After Mr. Jones had concluded,

portant stage in the progress or this Associ
ation ; and as he saw in the assembly a
-distinguished gentleman, the Rev. Dr.
Mason, who had devoted much of his
time to the study of subjects immediately
connected with the objects to which it is
devoted, and who was well qualified to
give instruction and encouragement in the
good work in which we were about to em
bark, he would take the liberty to request
that genileman to favor the toociety witn
some remarks ; and in order to place a
.question before the House, he asked leave

ent will render some service to the State
by uniting hi motif with u w-- -Airripulniral

Th Tlftv. Tir. Mason responded to the
call in an able and instructive speech of an
lialf hour's length, in which he demonstra
ted the importance of success in agricul
ture to the permanent prosperity and inde
pendence of any community or country
shewed the importance of knowledge ana
co-operation in agricultural improvement
and very happily illustrated the utility and
" pleasure which would result from greater
care and attention to the orchard, as well
as to the farm and the garden.

GOVERNOR GRAHAM. ,.
We- hnvp. vpninrpfi. since the Whi? par
ty of Virgrinia have eo universally and en-
thusiastically endoreed ine course oi presi
dent Fillmore, and declared hi.n to be
their choice for reaccession to the highest
office within the gift of the people, to elicit
the views of many of the Whigs in this
neighborhood as to their preferences for the
office of Vice President; and we sincerely
believe, that if the will of our parly could
be known to-day, William A. Graham,
of North Carolina stands first and foremost
among all competitors for that position.
The basis of this conviction is, that we hear
everywhere accorded the highest meed of
praise for the able and discreet manner in
which he has administered the affairs of
the Department over which he presides;
for his undoubted capability and unswerv
ing patriotism; his bold, manly, and con
sistent course in the Whig ranks, and his
well-known and unalterable attachment to
tli Srmh nnH hr institutions.' It is con
ceded that, under any and all circumstan
ces, we must have a southern man for the
Vice Presidency none other can expect
to be acceptable. In the race for prefer
ment few can have the same favoiable cir
cumstances to recommend them few can
prove so reliable and so popular as the dis
s - , .i . ..i j a ...t,..

before intimated, harmony in our ranks is
to be attained even though it should re-
quire a sacrifice ot the strongest individual
preferences; cordially upon those who may
seem most likely to secure a triumph, and
to realize the expectations oi our menus m
nil units nf thn countrv bv uniting every
J ' ' .
fractional part of the Whig strength.
William A. uiaham, oror.h oarotina,
from his extended popularity and uational
reputation, bids fair to be most acceptable
to that portion of the Union , which will claim
the second office as an appropriate pledge
and acknowledgment of a disposition to in
terfere in nowise with its peculiar institu-
nant "of fidelity to the bonds of our Union,
... . i i i . ...
tt lnch must be preservea, anu.uo uena
evidence of its almost universal acceptabil
ity by Northern Whigs can be produced
than lslound in tne iaciuiaiasyei uu uum
I T.
from that section has been namea m
nexionwith the office of Vice President.
Whether our Presidential candidate be
Fillmore, or. Webster, or Scott, we must
l,.tr af-iithi-rn man as Vice President, to
ensure the success of the ticket and to har
monize ihe discordant elements which ill-
temnered nreiudice and sectional views
seem likely to engender. . With us it is a
borne question; we can trust any and all
of those who have been named for the first
office we know them to be Whigs and
patriots, tried and true. Let us, then, seek
to name one for the V ice Presidency every
wav as worthy as they of southern support
and southern confidence. It is not alto
gether improbable that our State Conven
tion, soon to assemDie, may ueciaic unan
imously for Mr. Fillmore; and we do hope

This is a proud day for those here assem

whenever and Avherever I have seen

WHIG PRINCIPLES.
It really amusing to read some of. the
pompous articles iu our Democratic ex
changes, glorifying their own party and
demolishing, as they seem to think, at one
fell blow, the whole Whig party. These
papers talk very flippantly of Democratic
principles, of their triumphs, fcc , and as
sert that the Whigs have no principles,
having abandoned the Bank, the Tariff,
&c. "One can hardly read the articles to
which we refer, without coming to the
conclusion that the writers themselves know
v ery little of the-principles of the two paj
tie& and thai they never have in their
own minds drawn a distinction between
measures and principles, even if they
have the ability to do so. But such arti
cles have their influence, and while they
may amuse some by their simplicity, they
may lead others astray, as many of their
readers take their assertions upon trust
without due examination. How ridicu
lous is the assertion ihat the Whigs have a
bandoned their pnuciples, when it is noto
rious that they have now a consistent and
firm representative of those principles in
ihe Presidential chair, and that they are
fast bringing their forces into a formidable
array to contend for them in the next Pre
sidential contest.
But it is urged that the Whigs have a-bandoiu-d
a United States Bank! True.
But that is no Whig principle. It w-as a
Democratic measure in its inception ; and
was advocated by the Whigs because they
believed it afforded great facilities to the
Government and the people. Their prin
ciples, which had regard to the interests
of the people, led them to sustain thisZ?e
power and popularity of the man who ihfi
ally crushed it. But the Whigs would
not believe a Bank would be useful if made
the subject of party strife, and the princi-
les, therefore, led to its abandoment.-
Mip nflmnrraia will have to establish it a-
gtunif they deem it necessary the Whigs,
we presume, wilt not; ana as some jem-
ocrats have been taught to believe that
Dprnmrnrv consists in OPOOSinST a Bank,
there is much reason to fear that this plank
in their platform will have to be dropped,
and that those who have nereioioie jiiam
pH ilipmsf-lpps so firmlv on it in opposition
to the ''monster," may be at a loss to clas
sify themselves.
In rPftrpn-P. tn the Tariff, the Whigs
stand upon the same platform upon which
r . X - -.1. T1T rl,r
they stood twenty years ago, wuu iui . vi
at their head. They go for no higher

CASS AND THE PROVISO.
; The, intelligent reader will recollect that
not many months before the meeting of
the .Baltimore Convention of 1848, Mr-.
Cass- of broken sword notoriety wrote
a letter to one Mr. Nicholson, of Tennes
see, upon the subject of the then much
talked of Wilmot Proviso. : The real ob
ject of the epistle was to procure for the
writer thereof the nomination for the Pres
idency by the said Democratic , Conven
tion of 1848 j and so ingeniously was it
contrived to look one way and row anoth
er at the same tinl, that its purposes was
in all things accomplished. Cass received
the nomination1, with unfeigned gratitude,
no doubt, mounted the platform erected for
him for the campaign, and declared that
his Profession of Political Faith was for
ever closed. But the people of the coun
try were not so easily bamboozled as the
builders of the Baltimore Platform had
supposed. The hero of the broken sword
was routed, and was glad enough to get
back to tlie United States Senate, where
he could again play the demagogue and
manmiivm for another nomination. But
to his inexpressible confusion he has found
that certain retractory memuers oi ins par
t v lifiv not nniift as much iSsnect for '.-a
J x
beaten General as they might entertamind
lhat it would not go mucn against ine grain
with them to shuffle off his leadership and
put themselves under the colors of some
other adventurer. Certain portions of the
Nicholson letterre not quite so savory in
their nostrils as they were four years ago ;
and consequently he has been compelled
more than once since his return to the Sen
ate to re-open his said Profession of Faith
and add an explanatory note or two to the
original text. On the 1 9th ultimo it be
ing hangman's day frcm time immemo

portions, was a letter wntten by iUr. Jer

into a Washington paper, calling in ques
tion the soundness of some of his views.
After a proper and becoming prolegomen
on, he proceeded to sound his ram's horn
in the following wise :

existence ot the War, ana tne principles

own position, and to prove that he was al-

to the true. Hunker standard of Democra

resolutions, which were drafted by Mr.

which were passed by a Democratic State

Now, it appears from a statement made
in Congress by Mr.s Rantoul, a Freesoil
Democrat from; Massachusetts,, that Mr.
Hallett entertains opinions identical with
his. He says that at a convention of the
Democratic party, in 1849, Mr. HaUett,aa
chairman of a comnliuee, introduced the
following resolutions, which were unani
mously adopted :.
"Resolved, That we are opposed to sla
very in any form and color, and in favor
of freedom and free soil wlierever man
lives throughout God's heritage.
. "Resolved, That'. we are opposed to the
extension of slavery to free Territoriestnd
in favor of the exercise of all constitution
al and necessary means to restrict it to the
limits within which it does or may exist
by thi local laws of the State."

written by Mr. Hallett.
In the Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle of the
17th we find a leading article and Wash
ington letter, devoted to the freesoilism of
Mr. Hallett and Mr. Rantoul, which are
important, as they show the high estima
tion in which both eendeman are regarded
by the Union paity in the South.
' The Clironicle quotes from the speech
of Mr. Rantoul the extract which we quo
ted above, and asKs, in .terms muignant,
whether the Union party of the South can
meet in Convention at Baltimore with such
men as Mr. Hallett and Mr. Rantoul,
both of whom, we understand, are dele
gates to that convention.
After quoting Ranloul's speech: so far
as it relates to Mr. Hallett and the resolu
tions quoted by our Richmond friend, tne
writer breaks out thus :
"From this it will be seen, not only
what sort of a man this Mr. Rantoul is,
but also what, sort of a man Mr. Hallett is,
who is chairman of the committee who
called this Baltimore Convention. It was
expected by some of luefire-cating- gen
tlemen of last year, that Mr. Rantoul, for
the sake of harmouy in the party, would
have modified his opinions to some extent.
But it seems that his Yankee obstinacy is
stronger than their southern chivalry for
h. Knnlrp. with the same boldness that he
did last spring, when he volunteered in the
case oi the runaway slave '-aims, -.who
ivna tntpn tin in lWiri. You probably

recollect, as weir as your readers, what ex
citement was produced throughout me
South bv thp trial in "that case. Rantoul
was the volunteer counsel in the case,who
denounced the Fugitive-'clave law as un
constitutional. And ibis is the man that
Southern Rights men are now willing to
sit in a convention with, to nominate a
candidate for the Presidency in whose

"And this is the man that Constitution
al Union men are asked to associate and

AN ANECDOTE.
The inhabitants of a small town in Ohio
were recently put in a great state of ex
citement, by the announcement that Kos
suth would pass through their village at a
certain hour. Accoramgiy -eeiy t'f"
that could walk, man, woman and child,
was at the depot at the expected moment
prepared to give warm welcome to the na
tion's guest. It so happened that Kossuth
did not arrive in that ram of cars, but a
returned Californian was there, who -prided
himself on a magnificent moustache and
a heavy growth of black whiskers, and
sported a Kossuth hat and plumes. Up
on seeing the parade, he stepped forth up
on the platform, to -tne -great amuwiucii
of his fellow passengers, and was received
with three times three hearty cheers ! He
raised his hat and plume, and bowing

thanked them most sincerely tor meir sym
pathy with "down trodden" Hungary ,and
amid deafening hurrahs returned to his
seat iu the cars. The conductor gave the
signal and the train moved on and was
soon out of hearing. The inhabitants of
that village will undoubtedly go to their
graves in the firm conviction of having
seen and listened to Hungary's great Pat
riot. Jioston Journal.

Resolved, That we view the Whig par
ty as the great National conservative party
in the Union. And that whatever of en
lightened progress has maiked our career
as a nation, has found its sturdiest advo
cates in the Whig ranks. .
Resolved, That although we sympathise
with the politically oppressed in every coun
try, and sincerely hope that the time may
speedily arrive w'heu the iron heel of des
potism may cease to inflict its tortures up
on its down-trodden vjcUms we hold that
"to thine own self be true," is no less es

serving politicians for selfish and unworthy

Resolved, That the true Wings of Edge
combe, believe that the Compromis meas
ures of 1850, in their natural bearing and
relations, were the best that could ; have
been desired under the circumstances, and
that as no one of them can be repealed
without destroying the ; harmohy of the
whole, and as some of them from their na
ture aie placed beyond legislative control,
and as they were passed in the spirit of
concession and compromise they should
be regarded as-a final settlement" of the
different subjects they embrace.
' Resolved, That we know no 'higher
law' than the organic law of our Govern
mentthe Constitution . of the United
States that we are in favor of the Con
stitution as it is without modification or a

Resolved, That we deprecate the feel
ing of sectionality, tliat has, to a certain
extent, shown itself in the Whig ranks -that
as the Whig party North and South
look upon the question of Slavery as set

our Northern brethren have given their ad

and-are disposed in like faith to carry it

when the reason of a tiling ceases to exist,
the thing itself should cease : therefore,
that we re-affirm our adherence to the
time honored nnd lontr cherished nolicv of
our paty, and appeal to our brethren of the
whole country, in the name oi our party,
its principles, and its purposes, to forget
past differences, forgive past grievances,
and move in one solid column, ana act
as one man, against our political opponents
in the approaching contest.
Resolved, That we are devotedly at
tached to the Union as it is ; and that we
abhor and detest all kinds of fanaticism,
particularly disunion and secession, aboli
tionism and freesoilism, wherever found,
as tending to subvert the greatest political
fabric ever instituted for man's govern
ment. Resolved, That Millard Fillmore, for
his eminent nationality, his disinterested
patriotism, and his unflinching integrity,
no less than for his soundness and conser
vatism upon all questions of Whig policy
is our first choice for the Presidency ; yet
we will support the nominee of the Nation
al Convention, if he be sound tiwn the
Resolved, Yhat William A. Uiaham is
one of the noble sons of our State whom
we delight to honor that we have a most
exalted admiration" for him as a man, a
patriot and a statesman, and that he is
pi e-eminendy the first choice of the Whigs
of Edgecombe, for the second office with
in the gift of the American people thai
we believe with the names of Fillmore
and Graham nailed to our mast head, the
Whigs of North Carolina will rally as one

able terms her title, as the "banner Whig
State of tlie Union." "
Resolved, That it is with feelings ofthe
most poignant soirow and regret, we hear
of the continued illness of that distinguish
ed and patriotic statesman, Henry Clay
we trust he may yet be spared to enlight

experience.
Operation of the Liquor Law in the
State Of Maine. We have had several re-
norts of the excellent operation ofthe liquor
law in Maine, and the following case is res
pectfully submitted to the collectors of those
..-.-tc fi-vr information and record. It is
copied from the Bath Tribune, of Tuesday:
"A large dealer in dry goods in this city,
a temperance man, and a firm advocate of
temperance, received by the train a large
box of valuable goods. It was evidently
packed with great care in Boston, and the
box strongly secured with iron bands. It
contained linens, and other goods of a cost
ly kind, and was from the house of Beebe
& Co., Boston. When it arrived at the mer
chant's store, it was evident it had been
opened. The box was nearly broken to
pieces, bearing marks of having been open
ed by the force of some heavy instrument.
The ban4s of iron were torn off, and the box
confined .together by means of some old
rope lashed around it, and nailed to it. On
opening it, the contents were found in a
perfect state of confusion. The packages
had been overhauled, their wrappers torn
off, (and, in many instances, their labels
destroyed,) and were all left exposed and
damaged. It had evidently fallen into the

FINE STOCK.. -We
had the pleasure a few Weeks since,
of being upon the farm of Thos. Jones,
Esq.; of Martin county, and we Were
much pleased with the farm, and its own
er besides, Mr. Jo;es is turning his at
tention to the breeding of improved stock,
both of catde and sheep; and from hia
great success in tlie beginning, ;W& are
much inclined to think that he will suc
ceed. , Several farmers who tire disposed
to raise improved stock, have met witk poor
success in this State; they very often kill
them with kindness. What we mean by
that is, that they generally purchase them
at a fair in some State, when they are fat
tened for the very purpose of making a fine
show; and farmers in this State who buy
them, generally think that they must still
be kept in this condition, .and they have
them fed hi.wh. and very often over-feeding
by negroes who manage them, kills them.
Mr. Jones mrorms us mat tie auow3 ins
improved stock to fare the same as his oth
er, and he thinks that by this process he is
nun ate enough to save mem. j e mw
me fine Devon cows, and a; very, fine
ihree-year-ofd bull as noble an animal
as we ever looked at which, would com
pare .with bulls of the same age anywhere,
We saw also, several Cotswald sheep,
which are generally looked upon as tlie
best breed t-f that kind of stock. J We hope
that Mr. Jones will favor us occasionally
with hints upon the raising of fine stock;
for we are well assured, from our little con
versation, Uiat he is well posted up on
that subject, as "well as most others, in con
nection with the various improvements be
longing to farming. J

MANUFACTORIES IN ORANGE.
While on the subject of improvements,
we propose to notice some which have re
cently taken place in this county,' and
which promise, at no distant day, greatly
to advance the business and interests of the
people. ' . -J ...
Messrs. Webbs .&, Douglass have just
completed a Cotton Factory on Little Riv
er, about thirteen miles east of Hillbeto'
and are now receiving their Machinery
from the North. They expect; to com
mence operations dnring the summer, and
will run 1000 spindles. !
Messrs. Roberts &, John Shilds have
also erected a Woolen Factory on Ena, a-.
it Is expecte3 thai 0ey will commence op
erations in afew davs. This we think is
the third or fourth Woolen Factory in the
State; and we look upon their introduction
as ofthe more importance, because, if Aye
are not much mistaken, if proper facilities
are afforded, Western North Carolina will
eventually become a great wool 'growing
countiy. We hope the locafion of Uiis
Factory i i Orange will induce our people
to pay more attention to the raising; of
Sheepjfor it is generally conceded to be the
most profitable animal we can raise.
Eagle Foundery, owned by j Messrs.
Brown & Wilkinson, is situated on Euce,
about three miles Eart of Hillsborough.
It has been in operation onlyt short time,
and its ingenious and enterprising, proprie
tors are constantly adding improvement.
We are gratified "to learn that the demand
for their work isuite equal to their ability
at present to meet it. :
Messrs. Dicksons & Brovn's establish
ment,' for manufacturing Wool Carding
Wheat Fans, -&c, is situated
on Enoe river, about six miles east of Hills
borough. In to-day's paper will be found
their advertisement, to which we invite at
tention. Tothcse we may add Mr. R. F. Webb's
establishment for manufacturing Window
Blinds, a handsome article, of which we
have before spoken ; and the Rev. John
A. McMannen's establishment at South
Lowell, at which are manufactured Smut
machines, which wc see, by frequent men
tion in our exchanges, are obtaining con
siderable celebrity in tlie State on account
of their excellence. He also manufactures
Patent Qorn Sheilcrs, &c, which are in
good repute. ' ' . .'.
There may be other manufactories: in
the county Vhich have recently been com
menced, butUiey do not occur to us just
now. These, though few in number,
form quite a respectable beginning, and
furnish sufficient data upon which to build
a reasonable calculation of the. prosperity
that must attend a well directed energy
when o ur Railroad is put i n operation .
