would suffice to open an inland com

is estimated at 56 miles in length.

We saw a few days ago another ex-
tra JrQm"$heiiffice blJLheJsiandam ton-:
taininc a letter or certificate of Gov.
Branch trying to show that he is not a
citizen of Florida.
And how, gentle reader, do you think
he proves it? He admits that he has
removed his lamily and property to(
Florida, where " he spends his winter
and springs;" and that he is now a
candidate for a if at in their Convention,
but that he was born and raised in
North Carolina, and on the same plan
tation too where " a long line of native
bom anceslort lived before ntm," and
therefore he is stiil, anil of course must
continue to the end of his life, a North
Carolinian. How amusing! Why, Pat,
the Irish bogirottcr, who comes over
here in search of whiskey and freedom,
knows better than that; and that a man,
no matter where he is born, may be
come the citizen of another country.
This reminds us of an old story of a
foreigner who came to this country and
advertised for on American tervunt.
A raw Paddy from Cork, just 'caught'
anil brought overTn;d his appear
ance, and in the rich brogUcOf-Ertn
enquired, " Is it your honor that is in
want of a sarving man?' "I am in
wantol a servant, but I want an Amer

'Och,.l 'am an Amirikin," says Pat.
" Indeed; why where were you born?"
inquired the gentleman laughingly
'In ould Ireland, to be sure, your
honor; but it a chicken be hatched i
the stable, must he be a horse?"
But to be serious. Does Gov. Bianch
really insist that he still resides in
Halifax.?,. How much of the last four
years has 'he spent there? He spends
his winters and springs in Florida."
Docs lie spend his summers and falls
in Halifax? Is his family not now
spending the summer at his-summer
house in Georgia? When he was a
bona fide citizen ol that county, we re
member his summer and fall residence
was in Wake county for health. We
have occasionally heard of him in N.
Carolina, but it was when he was flying
through the State on his way to Wash
ington or some Northern City, or on
his return home. But he still owns a
plantation in Halifax. Now he may do
this for a variety of reason. It may
be. that it is endeared to him ai the de
pository of the bones of his kindred,
and therefore he will not sell it; or, it
maybe that he and long line of
notice born ancettort 7 ot which he
speaks, have worked it so long and so
hard that it i worn out, and that nobo
duwtll buy it. But can any man not

residence and eligibility; and the pic

Sir, in your paper of the

"Windsor. Bertie Co., N. C. June -2G,
1838." In that letter, among other
intended to be smartj things, made
known to you, and by you to the peo
ple of Bertie, in order to dictate to
them who they shall give leave to stay
at home, and who they shall -choose to
repiesent them in the next Legislature
of N. C, it is said the "federal whis
have brought . out Lewis Bond, En.,
for the Commons;" thus intending, bv
a combination of offensive terms, with
out the least regard to truth or honesty
to give the said "Lewis Bond, Eq.,"
leave to stay at home also. If you,
sir, had seen fit to let the name of your
coxcomical correspondent accompany
his presumptuous communication, you
would have spared me the trouble of
thus noticing iiis impertinent dictation;
and lest any citizen of Bertie should
be at a loss to know who this worthy
correspondent ofjjie Standard is, it

The Editor certainly has a right to en

prejudices, as to support "any nomina

ther he coincided with them in support
of the Sub-Treasury project. The
Standard, a short time since, declared
its belief that a "very large majority
of tlie Democratic Republican party
were averse to an opposition to Gov.
Dudley." Whether itfry wH-Wego

act up to the doctiihe. We remember
that this same print , charged, two years
ago, that Gov. Dudley's election was
procured solely through the agency of
the Nullificrs, asserting that his major
ity throughout the State would not ex

too, thought it his duty to say that the

in all and thus ringed out, the prize
was dispatched to the French admiral
at Wra Cruz. Thie capture, &c. took
place on tlie 25 ill or 28ih of June the
mate does not remember which, as he
had not the log convenient when we
saw him.
After getting every thin;, in readi
ness they proceeded on their way to
Vera Cruz. Ihe French were stran
gers, not acquainted with the currents,
the coast, the , Northers, ,&c, and the
Yankee prisoners blarneyed them so,
that they struck much larther to the
eastward than was necessary and actu
ally made a mistake ol three degrees
in their reckoning. The Yankees, how
ever, knew where they were and what
iney were aoout, anu Kept d nK.
At length on the of the 4'h
of July, about 4 o'clock, the three A
mericau tars commenced t' cir celebia
tion by a bold stroke for independence,
when they were only SO miles from
Sacrificious where the French squad
ron lay. Capt. Clark, -the mate and
steward were all on deck. Thev first
took the precaution to lor k the door of
the cabin, thus lastenetung in the lieu
tenant commandant, and put the hatch
over, the forecastle the captain then
went up to the man at the wheel, and
placing his finger in such a way as to
reseotDie a pistol, swore he would blow
his brains out if he did not instantly put
the helm down. The fellow obeyed and
was tied. Three others, who weie on
deck, were also "lit on," tied down
and secured. Tbe other four who were
in tbe furccaitlf, were ordered up and
as they came! up one by -crie, thvy ,T.V
were tied.' The tricolored Jlag wn rt.

thus so completely re-taking hi vessel
without bloodshed, with a, force of three
men against nine, resumed the com
mand and shaped his course for tin
port, with his prisoners strung together
like io many dried app cs, where he ar
rived yesterday at two o'clock.
These three gallant lellows appear
to have met with but little resistance.
fhey were determined to have posses
sion ofKie'vesselr-'-Thw-rwe-'prestnne,''
the Frenchmen perceived at the cuni-
JiienceuuMit of hostilities, and conclu

with the best grace possible. The prizrf
was worth about 1525,000 of which
815,000 was IB specie and the remain
der in 'hitUs. This was too paltry a
matter to fight for, and we think it was
well enough that the b'.orkaders 1U-
dained to shed blood for such a trifle.
The Lieut. Commandant, we under
stand, retained possession of the papers
of the Lone, but whether he has jet iv.
