their tactics full well enoitgh' to guard against
them. If bold denunciation, unaccompanied with
one particle of proof, can accomplish their object,
we might as well save ourselves the trouble of a
contest, for they would be sure to succeed. But
when you bring them down to the test of evidence,
it is finite a different thing. As a specimen of ;
their mode of warfare we point to an article in the j
last Richmond Enquirer, in which-an attempt is I
made to fasten on Mr. Fillmore the change of Abo-!

as to the policy or hearing or rtiusing to near pe- i
titions on the subject of slavery, we think we may
point to the fact of the Enquirer's seizing on these
remarks of Mr. Fillmore as strong proof that the
Editors are 'particularly hard run. Alf'that they
can truly say about Mr. Fillmore is, that he is one
of the sUunchest Whigs in the Union one of the
most popnfar men in the North, and ono of the
ablest men in the country.

CHARLES MANLY, of Raleigh.
The present Xo. of the Noeth Caeolixa Time's is j
distributed very freely, to all to whom we have op
portunity to send it. We hope the Public will ex1
amine it candidly, and if they think we can be of
good service to the Whig cause, (which is the
cause of tho country,) as we pledge ourselves to
endeavor to be, with energetic industry, we hope
for the encouragement and patronage of the Whigs
of North Carolina. OurTerms will bo found in
our Prospectus, published in this day's paper. To
all who may subscribe hereafter, we will send the
back Nos. as long as any remain on hand.
We request all with whom we exchange, to no
tice the change of location, and send our papers
to RALEIGH. Some of our exchanges have done
so with promptitude, for which they will please
accept our thanks but as yet, we miss many of l
our valued friends and visitors. Will they please i
alter our address on. their Direction books?
A part of this issue is printed upon paper in-
fjr;or to that we contemplate using. Our paper
-had not arrived in time, and rather than delay the
No. we print on such as we could get. Our sub
scribers shall have no cause of complaint in this
In this County n the Senate, John E. Thomas
(Whig) opposes the Democratic Candidate, James
Collins, and will run him to the throat-latch. In
tlie Commons, a fefeular scramble, a " war of tlie
Kilkenny Cats" will come OtTin August, letween
William K. Martin, David' W. Spivey, Jos. Jno.
Jones and Wm. M. B. Arendell -all Locofocos.
This will be a very pretty fight but, we think the
two last, who. are opposing, or independent candid
ates, may run in over the devil-may-care Loco
focos, who were first inthe field, as tlie corner-of-
the-ferice nominees. We. will watch them by and j

pie, and make the Locofocosrtf.
Tlie large and enthusiastic meeting of Wliiors
on Tuesday night, in this City, (of which the
official account will be found in 'our columns to
day.) like those of which we have seen the pro
ceedings all over the Union, must put to flight the
silly cant of our Democratic opponents about di

the sake of effect, and to slur up Uieir own divk- '

Our readers all know, before they receive this
sheet that the labors of the Whig Conven.ion have i
closed,; and that
heads the People's Ticket for President. Our rea
ders all know, too, that w3 have our choice. We
love as well as admire this old Hero. Hi life has
been spent in tlie service of diis country a life of
self-denial; and of patriotic exertions ; and we have
seen him, forgetful of self, with true modesty, and
ingenuous, simple fidelity to his comrades, disclaim
for himself the glorious honors of a most brilliant
campaign, that he might - heap them upojn those
who acted under his orders, arid moved by his di
rection. In every light in which we can jcontem-
plate hU character, whether in the blaz? pf glory
and the career of victory, or sulleiing under the
frowns of Executive displeasure, jealous of his fame
and the hold he was taking, upon the hearts of his
countrymen, we see the same inherent dignity and
solidity, the same massy greatness, the same noble
and lofty bearing-neither elevatod by the glory he
has won, nor depressed by the inaction to which
he was condemned. He stands before the country
still, tihe same simple, true-hearted hero and patriot
appealing from the Administration .to the people,
with a trusting confidence that he will receive jus
tice at their hands.
It is 'true, that we were pledged to support the
Whigj National Convention. The members of that
body jwere wiser ihan we they came fresh from
the people, they kn'w their feelings and their wish
es, and it was right the y should respect them. We
had committed the choice of our candidate into
their liands. Had' Henry Clay or General Scott,
or any other distinguished Whig received the nom
lnation, we should have puccriuny surrenaerea our

are much mistaken if this is not the proper
course for every true Whig to pursue. We cannot
hope for success without unanimity : every where
the Whig party are rallying upon the nomine?;
and we have no fear but that, in North-Carolina,
we shall present an undivided front, standing upon
the broad platform of the Constitution, supported by 1
all its guaranties and compromises, grieved by on
croachtnents upon, and violations, of it,, by Ithe men '
in power, and solicitous to restore its inviolability
and purity of administration in our National Gov
ernment ; while at home, we have our own con

The last Standard raises the cry of " Military

not, the Editor was a member of the Baltimore Con-
vention which nominated two "Military Chieftains"
upon the Democratic Ticket, General Cass and
General Butler, the military services of both of
whom. We expect to hea Kim extol to the kiea

- j lustrous and splendid fame of General Zachary
Tavior. But is there not
something peculiarly
new, interesting and wonderful, in the ingenious
j discovery, that, while the election of one " Military
, Chieftain'" is dangerous, the election of two is harm
, less ? Commend us to the Standard for brightness
' and originality, alway?. That " Military Chi ?.f

such a terrible fellow. But' those meek. -and
