ROUGH AiD READY CLUB.
A larTs and respecu'ble meeting wras held at

the purpose of perfecting the organization ol the

like the call of a trumpet, to lead embattled hosts
to vi ten
and we have never heard him without .
filings of deep admiration and respect for the I
powers of the oratoV, and earnestness of .the man.
Kerr is one of those noble and whole-souled
vhigs who have contributed so often 0 bear our
banner to victory, in the Old North State; and we
confidently again commit it to his hands, and, to
those of his former able and gallant associates.
Mr. Miller was then called on whq responded
n his usual logical and argument-tivejmanner.
The reasoning powers of this gentleman's mind
are cf the highest order, and he fortifies his pdsi-
tions so strongly with facts and figures proofs and
deductions, that well may Locofocoisni fear him.
He has an arduous Campaign befor him, it is
true, but we know of no man more cdmpetent for
its toils and duties. Our sketch, is s-neccssarily
hasty and imperfect but it is all we jean present

paper, devoted expressly to tlie Canvass for th

determined to move his Press to Raleigh, and con
tinue the publication of his paper there, for th
above purpose no Whig Campaign paptr having

of his friends, in various "parts of the State, hat no

Paper, in name and in fact, and as. a spirited, and
and energetic, aid to th

Distrusting his own qualifications and abilitr

spect, he will be aided by romeof the most able and
talented writers in the Stale, willing to devote their
time and abilities to the advancement of tho came,
and the triumphant success of tho principle, of the
