The late exposure of the crooked course
of the StanJarJ, which appeared in this p.per,
is taken in hijli dudgeon by our good-tempered
brother, the Editor; and after a foitnighl' de
liberation, he has eome lo the conclusion that
the "beit method of parrying h foree is to charge
u. with a violntion of the rules of the Conven
tion, Dd our cor.epondent with being a sort
of game not worth the chase," ic Now, to
thia we enter a regain Demurer, on the ground
that our neighbor is not tha proper judje. We
did not expect he would receive h chastise
ment of Junius without flinching, especially his
J oimadveriont on the ill treatment 'ho Com-
uii.siooera for rebuilding the Capitol, and Wes
ton R. Gales, Esq. had received from lliis great
stickler for Conventional rules II is a lore
thing to did a man content with iha punish
nienl which his own folly or, impfudenie ha.
brought lipou him. It is a tiitc, but true say
ing, that
No rogue e'er felt the halter draw,

But we can assure the public that whatever
come from the pen of either tho real or re
ported" author of Junius is entitled to bs much
weight a any thing from the Editor of the
Standard hiinelf; and probably a little more, as
they aie both of talents, unquestiona
ble veracity, and 'unwarped' iu their judgments
by . party rage."
We have on file a communication from
P.hilo-Junius," which we may publish tJ re
mind our neighbor that the rules of the Editorial
Convention were not designed lo license any
Editor to give vent to his propensity to vulgar
abuse in any shape; that they were not intend

but for the equal protection of the character of
all the members of the community; .ml that no
Editor can, therefore, with impunity attack olh-

Diaa Sia: On my return home last night
I found among my other lettera one from yon
dated the 18th instant, containing the follow,
ingf interrogatory. "Are you or are ynu not
a ctizrn of North Carolina, and do you con
sider i his State yOur homer" This I will lose
no time in answering! and in the1 language of
the Editor of the Star, will sav that if any
thing cot.Id have surprised me, in this day of
degeneracy aud mendacilv, it woulj nave
been the bold and unqualified assertion of a
falsehood by gentlemen in whose veracity I
had been-wont to repose confidence. What
their motive, are; ia but too apparent, they
are tired of hearing myself and others called
the firm friend, of the good old faith of 1798-
99. It i. a .landing reproach to their degen

would adopt the athenian mode, and tracUe

iruat-worlhy than the present incumbent of the
Kxecutivc chair.
Next in the Editor', atring of questions
come, the Tariff. He well know, that this
vexed question has been long since consigned
to the 'tomb of ihe Capulcts,' With the Editor,
we opposed this unjust system Two of our
most gifted statesmen performed the burial Mr
vice a proxie. of the two great contracting sec
tions. Every patriot and friend of the whole Un
ion joined in chaunting its death-dirge. And
why seek now to tear oen the wounds inflict
ed by a system which once convulsed the coun
try? C.n euch a purpoae be patriotic? " No
we beg pardon" we recollect the Van Buren
paity very recently attempted to diaturb the re
mains of ibis dead monster. Dot it possessed
not the Phcenis-fire; nor could the talism.nie
charm of gold which was to be wreathed about
its resuscitated form, quicken it into life. Had
it then sprang up, the Mil beneath it, like that
which surroonded the tree of Milton's hell,
would have been scorched ad crimsoned with
the (ires and blood of civil conflict; nor would
the " Pandemonium" at Washington have been
alow in pouring forth it. serpent legioqi to revel
in th. fruita of the accursed charm; even tho'
they had turned to ' aiAes' and stuck in their
foal throat so deaperat. is their thirst for gold!
Next comes National Bank. Guarded by
wise reatric lions, we are in fever of each an in

Q The Standard says, that all the
administration members of Congress
from this State will vote for Governor
Branch. How and when did lie learn
this? Have these said dictating "dem
ocratic" members been here since the
adjournment of t'nngr3do "give this
information? Or have they conidered
their opinion about the matter of such
great importance, that they have writ
ten, one Mid all, to their organ, that he
might duly announce it to the people
with all the dictatorial pomp and so
lemnity of a royal edict that their sup
posed loyal aMbJects, the fnvwnn wf
North Carolina should Lain their
gracious will," and govern themselves
accoidin"lr? Or. is it not much more
prubabltf that this ready information of
the Standard was obtained bffoie the
nomination of Gov. Branch? Does it
not give us some clue to the o'ject of
the secret circular which has b en is
sued from head quarters to the leaders
of the party in this State? And does
it not afford guOicient evidence to sub
stantiate the charge, that this little squad
of democratic" representatives, in
conjunction with the sachems of the
Regency at Washington, iu their se
cret caucus during the last session,
"did then and there, with malice a
