' It inevitably follows from-a view of the

of America, because it is just adapted, to qualify
these future officers of government, magistrates,
representatives, senators, political debaters, voters
at the polls, Editors of the Press, the people gener
ally, for all those high qualities of character, es
sential to constitute them a State." Now send
these crown men," under euch instruction, to the
hustings, to the ballot boxes, to the Court, House,
to the Town Hall, to the Legislature, to Congress,
to the Churches, and my life on it sir, you cannot
dimagoguij or frit st a-gog thesa enlightened, free,
American citizens. No, Sir, they will tell the in
novator upon sound instructions, VVe are content
with the liberties" secured by our Republican far
thers we ask no changes and least of all srich
change as you can bring ais." They will tell the
idolater of European hierarchies, who- would ob
trude hi mediatorial grace upon their poor sinful
soid?: Here in free America, &c, Religion does
not percolate and distil in drops, through gold and
silver pipes, but jwursdown in floods from the open
X2xnAowtJ" Ilea ten, to enlighten the humble, to re
vive the" contrite, to bind up the broken hearted,
and bless a country where religion, like every other
gift and grace of God, is free fur all !
Sir, these are the sort of republicans ' we need,
men who know their rights and their duties, men
who can maintain them men who can" say to the
flatterers of European systems and customs. u If
you dissent from the opinions "of our Republican
ancestors and their institutions, and like Europe
better, a Steamer leaves twice a month from New
York for Liverpool .-go ! and enjoy your cherished
felicity under your loved institutions, if under Pro-
h vidence they have not been greatly altered since the
past news from your fountain of glory. Sir, a Iree-
born American with a strict regard to politeness,
should repress firmly the senseless arrogant and
insolent boastings of foreigners or their eulogists,
and plainly tell them that though we have no ven
erable antiquities nor owl inhabited honorable ruins,
we have, what they never have had, a free pros
perous, enlightened happy people, no kings, no
nobles, Do prelates but Presidents, Governors,
Statesmen and pious Ministers of Religion, chosen
freely from among all classes of society, and who
can compare with surpassing honor with any of
the "born to rule and ride" class in any part of
' We have far more, Sir, the most fertile soil in a
virgin country, in a mild climate generally, where
we can feed ourselves and all Europe with bread
stuffs ; mines of gold, silver iron, eopper and lead,
coal, granite, freestone, marble ; the nnest naviga
ble rivers and the most rapidly thriving cities and
villages. We have also the record of "History to
attest, that we have vanquished the pride of Europe
and h?r prowess in a hundred battles by sea and
land, before our Republic was half a, century old,
or had half her present population! And while
monarchies are decaying, and hastening to down
fall, America is only in the first vigour of her man
hood, tendering no homage to any earthly potentate,
but the Olive Branch of peace to ah opening her
arms as an asylum to the persecuted of every clime,
and affording solace to the cast a ways from every
soil upon her shores. Here, they can be Republi

tithes and taxation to enrich any privileged classes
or monopolists. 1 hey may arise to any Oihce they

' In reviewing the essays, Sir, you have so cour
tiously admitted to your columns, and so kindly
commended to your readers I have first to apologise '
for any unintentional rudeness or errors. ; As the
advocate of constitutional liberty and enlightened
Republicanism, I have pointed out what I deemed
errors in some departments of the government in
regard to the present administration I have charged
grievous departures 4rom the Constitution, and a
haughty imitation of the obsolete tyrannies that
Europe is shaking ott from her galled and ulcerated
With respect to Generals Scott -and Taylor, I
have contended that this Nation should delight to
honor, the brave defenders of their honor, frown on
their base calumniators, and reward men who have
exposed their lives and reputation as good soldiers,
in Irotly contested battle fields, while the Cabinet of
the United States were gloomily poring over
military strategy to pick flaws in some of the most
brilliant victories in our annals. I charge, Sir, on
this administration, that their attempt to censure
Gen. Taylor for the capitulation terms after the
victory of Monterey i and their truculent persecu
tion of the heroic Scott after he had covered him-
self and his country all over with as much glory as
such a war could comer, and as brilliant lustre as
victory following upon victory to final victory, could j
shed on his native land, that such recompense ot
these brave officers who were plucking laurels at
the mouths of cannon, while their detractors ' were
sucking wine, cigars and lemonade, safely, in
palaces at home, is an indelible stigma to our coun
try s-a reproach to the whole army and American
people a disgrace to me spirit oi tne i am century :
If 1 had my way, Sir, I would have two solid Gold
Medals' struck as large, as Scott's hasty soup plate,
and after suftab'e inscriptions of honorable merit,
to the names of ZACHARJ TAYLOR and WIN
FIELD SCOTT, have them presented by a Com
mittee of Con,gress without distinction of party.
And further, Sir, 1 would elevate these brave and
patriotic citizens to the highest honors our country
can bestow on long, able and faithful meritorious
services. If the Dejriocrats can trast Ijewis Cass of
the milish. the AVk,4aeefc0t fear, either Taylor
! or Scott of the Regular Army of the United States
of America. '
cannot believe, Sir, that our intelligent country-
men can enucrse so ioui a wrong uone to manmnu
in the persons of these gallant men, at the ballot
b;xes of Freedom. I cannot bear tho idea of
Carthaginian gratitude for our modern Hannibals.
Should such a verdict come from tho voices of our
usually high minded brave and warm hearted
countrymen, the blame will rest on the American
!' lxp!e, by the verdict of History and mankind. A

Sir, a people whwill not lay aside party preju

like our present ones, and exert their self govern

as held by their framers, are fast approaching that
fearful verge, where they are incapable of saving
them selves, and shall I write it unworthy to be
saved ! J. cinnot indulge an idea so abhorrent to
justice, Teason, patriotism and humanity in my be
loved country I cannot despair ot a Kepublic,
which amid numerous errors and acts of irreat in
justice, yet contains thousands of hearts that feel,
and tongues and presses that can make their in
dignant remonstrances heard by the tenants on
time, of power and office, at tfrf wul nf the American
people. To them I leave the issue if they can
endorse twenty years of irresponsible Jacksonism
and want more, they shall not have my vote. And
so long as the Press is free, I shall give them
neither "aid nor comfort," because

of the Presbyterian Church, convened at Balti

"Resolved, That the enterprise of the Coloniza
tion Society so successfully prosecuted amid so
much of obloquy, opposition, and misunderstanding,
has our highest confidence, as wise, peaceful, hu
mane, and philanthropic.
Resolved, That as it has been in past years, re
peatedly recommended to the patronage of the
Churches in our connection as pre-eminently com
bining the noblest benefits of Africa and America ,
to the emigrant Colonist, and to tho heathen tribes
around them, we vvould again offer it to their pa
tronage, and most earnestly recommend to all Pas
tors and Churches, an annual collection for its sup
port, to. be made early in July.
Resolved, That we have hoard with the higho st
pleasure of the complete destruction of the last
slave factory on the coast of Africa, (within the
jurisdiction of Liberia, a distance of 350 miles,)
and most earnestly hope for the day, when a traffic

THE OLD WOMAN'S RACE WITH A
In a cotta ge not very far from the well known
village of Ecclefechan, which can boast of more
bridges than even the metropolis itself, there re
sides a gude wife who is now in her 92d or. 93d
year, and is able,, notwithstanding to read without
the aid of spectacles, and to use her legs uith more
vigor than many of her juniors by a score; of years.
From her cottage she commands a view of the
Caledonian railway for nearly. .Hyemites" and of
ten amuses-herself with watching the trains ca
reering al6ng, speculating on the unco's changes
which have taken place since the days of her girl
hood. While discussing these matters the other
day, she made a bet of a crown piece with her son
that sho would start, from her house, which is three
quarters of a mile from the line ot railway, as
soon as the mail train came in sight, and reach an
accommodating bridge it crosses before the train
came. The proposal agreed to, she kilted up her
petticoats as soon as tho locomotive showed itsfi-.ry
nos?, and away she ran, three-fourths of a mile
against four and three quarters ; but for the one a
very elderly pair of legs, for the other the steam
steed rushing along with more than the velocity
of the race horse. ' For once, however, e ven steam
was too slow, and, with wind in very fair-order,
the nonagenarian gained the bridge, ran belcw and
back again," ere the ponderous train whizzed above
the arch. During her race she mot a- younger
female acquaintance who wished to speak with
her. 'I hae nae time the noo: eh, eh, I'm runnin
a race, wi' the train, ye see, eh, eh, unless, eh, eb,
you keep up wi' me.' This her friend attempted
to do, but soon found tha t she had bellows to mend,
and was forced to give in. The winner went
home triumphantly, pocketed the stakes with
great gusto, and was so little the worse for her
exertions that she offered to rrin the same distance
against her son, wjjo, after the specimen he had
just had of his mother's powers in the racing line,
very prudently declined the proposaVt There is
evidently no great need of sanitary reform among

of "A New Home," "Forest Life," &c and

W riters of the Country. t
AT the conclusion of the first half-year of the Union
Magazinei the Publisher feels impelled to make
pome acknowledgment of his sense of the favorable re
ception accorded to it by the public. Its'isncccas has
certainly been unprecedented ; and 'while.;1 it my be
pardonable to ascribe this in part to the merits, of the
work, it must not be denied that the public good-rwill.
and kindness have been abundantly demonstrated.
The pre?, in oil parts of the country, hs girea its
voice liberally and heartily in favor of tHe new aspi
rant. To flag after this would be dishonorable indeed.
It is the hope of the publisher that the courage and en
terprise which belong to success will be found rather
to have stimulated than slackened his exrrtiOns. If
there be talent of a suitable kind in the country, he is

The Collegiate year is divided into two sessions.
The first begins eijht weeks after, and the second 21
weeks before, the 2nd Wednesday in June. To euch
as desire to enter College, it is important that they be
in attendance at the opening of the session. A short
absence at that time may place a student under disad
vantages which-will impair Lis scholarship throughout
the session. Onr csurse of study is so arranged as to
meet the wants of young men who desire to acquire
an extensive English education, without studying the
Ancient Languages. 'l"he benefit to be derived from
the use of the Libraries and from attendance on -the
Literary Societies should strongly induce such young
men to prosecute their studies here. In order for a
student to enter upon the Eusliah course, Ife must be
thoroughly acquainted with English Grammar, Geog
raphy and Arithmetic. I
The' expenses of this Institution are as follows:
Board per session $40 ; Tuition and deposite fee, per
session, $22 50, are $125 for the Collegiate year, ex
clusive of incidental expenses, which include the cost
of text books, fuel, furniture, &c, for room in College.
We respectfully advise parents that more pocket mo
ney than is necessary t supply the reasonable wants
of a student is injurious. The practice of xoutracting
debts witn tradesmen, in the vicinity of Cor'ege, is in
a high degree pernicious. A law of the State of Vir
ginia designed to provide a remedy for this bane of all
Colleges, Ls to this effect: That any merchant who
shall gije credit to a College Rtudent, without special
authority from hi parent or guardian, shall, upon
conviction of the fact, forfeit the debt, forfeit his li
cense, and be lined J$3Q0. Let parents and guardians
have due regard to this law, and where it may be ne
cessary to open an account with a merchant, l?t the
individual be designated and the amount specified, and
tne evil will cease.
The primary object of the Preparatory School, is to
prepare young men for College, but the course of tu-
bdy is such as to meet the wants of the neighborhoods
in which they are located, and to qualify students for
the ordinary occupation of life.
The School in the vicinity of College continues un
der the direction of Mr. Vv. T. Davis, an uhle aud
successful Teacher, and my .own immediate supervis
ion. Its sessions and vacations are the same as those of
the College proper. The cost of board, &.C., is u little
less than a student of College pays.

For the School at Gareysburg, N. C, wo have ob
tained the sen-ices of Mr. Charles B. Stuart, A. M.;
and for the School at Ridgeway, N. C, We have en
gaged the services of Mr. V. C. Doub, A. M. These
gentlemen graduated a few years since at our Institu
tion, with a high reputation, and have been teaching
with eminent success since that time. The school at
Crurcysburg was opened on the 3d Monday in Janua
ry, and that at" Kidgeway was opened on .the first
Monday in February, and are in successful operation.
The eholastic year will be divided into two sessions of
5 months each.

So important are the Graefenberg Medicines to
the peopJexf the West, that the following atspa
should be immediately taken: .
1st. Every ighbin-hond should hare its Graefem

By such means billious diseases will, bo entirely '

This Paper was commencedMn Lonisburg, Frank
lin County, N. C, November 5lh, 1847.
In publishing this Paper, the Subscriber claims the
right of pursuing the occupation for, which his educa
tion and taleuts mialify him, as the best mode of sup
porting hl family, tn that portion of his native State
which he considers his home. The Public hare a
right to know the principle of !he Paper they are
desired to support; and a brief exposition of those
principles (such as the liiritx of a P.th?p-ctus will al
low) is accordingly submitted, s
Ve believe the principles of the Whig Party to be
patriotic and right ; they meet our hearty concur
rence, and ha!l receive our warm support.. We hare
ncthingbut those princ'ples to iuterpte against the
progressive strides of innovation, which even now run .
into the extreme, that desire and expediency, a thirst
for aggrandizement, and the potter to satisfy it, usurp
the place of Law and the Constitution, and right and
justice ; and confer upon the dominant party liberty
to do whatever they will, regardless of the barriers
thrown around them by the Constitution, as well as.,
tha usages of the Government. The Whig party
disavow 6uch purposes, wich measures; deny the
right, sec the evils, and ajjeal to the Gnutitutunt.'
We believe that the present Administration, by its
corrupt acts, and high-hand-d and illegal measures,
has done more to break down the wholesome re
strain ta of the 'oustitution, and to impair our confi
dence in the stability of that instrument on which the
Union of the States depends, than any which has
preceded it; and that is now pursuing a course of
measure, which, if not promptly checked, may wreck
both Union and Liberty.
But, while we oppose the present Administration,
and the Party which is responsible for the mischiefs
it has brought upon the Country, detraction and a
buse shall never rind a plac in the columns under
our control. Our chief aim. shall be a fair mad manly
exposition and defence of those principles on which 1
we believe our Prosperity, Unity,. rcatnes, and
Happiness depend ; and wc shall uWcard all personal
