One of our city papers do lrsa tban our
facetious evening cotemporary has introduced
a new issue into the canvass. It proposes that
tbe voters shall calmly scrutinize ths uestion
as to whether each of tbe candidates for Gov
ernor, Congress, and tbe Legislature are men
of sound morale, and if they are here found
wanting, then blackball the derelict. The
Arws thee proceeds to claim for ita candidates
that they can stand the required test and
especially that Messrs. Hattok an i Steueks
are excellent church members,

Jewish sect who were in the hsbil in their

It than other men." This se t waa called
yhiriaeea, and hence, ever since the prcmulga-
of that inspired history, those men bave

habit of loudly vaunting their righteousness,

Jbarisees the Divine Teacher waa in the habit
of pronouncing tbe n-oet fearful woea, in one
of ovhicii he plainly told th-m that they would
f r.rain at a goat and swallow a camel." We
4o not axy that thia is the case with the Aarjeri-
"car. candidates in Tennessee. We have no
msoc whatever to attack their morality, their
tlecetcy or their religion. And wc are free to
aay that if ws had known or award anything
contrary to good morale unlesa it were aome
act which ought ts render them infamous in
the eves of their fell
never think of making H the snbiect of news-
paper comment, much less of lugging it in ts
an issrce in the cantata. Such a mode of eon-
ducting a canvass has never seemed te us either ,
ayronrr or profitable, and baa net therefore been
aVr.iaI to oltr ro'umna. We Qal not there-
ore follow the example of the organ of our po
litical opponents and either aay or insinuate
aught against the moral cnaracter or habile of
their candidates. But we do tell them -.hat
many people, as honest and moral as they are,
will be inclined to regard the boaat of auperior
morality aa somewhat phariaaical, when bruit
ed about by their special advocate and organ.
It is not in the best tast. at least, to set up such
claims vsuntingly, aid it is s current sentiment
that good character and sound morals ruins
most brightly without a trumpeter.
Net that we would deprive puiry and reli
gion of their legitimate weight. But it would
. . - , i
be eaav to show that auch an lasue ia bad poll-
or aj ' v 1 r-
car. as to act up for church membership a scpe-
rior claim to the auffragea of the people. All
the outsiders would object to sack an arrange
atent,and might be forced to band together to
defeat s.-ch a plan. And again, if we mistake
in thia, and church members, by reason of their
religion were always in the line ot promotion,
we fear it would fearfully corrupt the rharcb
itself, by introducing into its fold many who
otherwise would remain far away from its sa
cred precincts, and who would be induced
thereto by the ' wild bunt after office." It
would, in brief, turn the church into a political
agency, on account of the number of those w bo
would seek its tasyrisssfnr to qualify them for
good Know-Nothing candi lates, aad successful
Another suggestion which occurs to us is,
that if scrutiny is instituted into tbe morels of
every candidate, it woul. be highly proper and
fair to prepare a catechiam commencing with
the ten commandments, and inquiring tcriafiat
whether the candidate is a violator of either
of them, and running through all the Bible
tests. We apprehend that few would be will
ing to stand such s strict and stern investiga
tion, as a superior claim to popular suffrage
Bea! merit is generally modest and prefers si
lence on auch points, and especially ia it un
willing to disparage rivals by denunciation.
The Savior of mankind refused l? bave a

THE SPELKIKG AT KALEI&E
As per anaouncement, Gov. Johns- sd
dresse I s very respectable portion of the citi
zens of thia county at Raleigh yesterdsy. A
jar .-a .ii ber of ladies were in attfndanee.
whose charmt and presence sdded much to tbs
interest Hon. A. O. P. Nicholsob, wbo was
present as ths traveling companion of Gov.
Johnson, also addreaaed the meeting. As our
time and space are both limited, we propose
no farther notice of tbe speeches of these gen
tlemen this Booming. We shall hare more to
aay to saorrow. io tbe mean time, let it be
re.iembered that Gov. Johbsob w.ll apeak a:
Bolivar to-day, and at Purdy neat Monday.
Some of our Kuow-Nothing opponents
seem te regard it as an awful offense in Got .
Johssok to leave Nashville and make a few
political speeches during the canvass. Tbey
eeem not to bare reflected tbat every Governor
of Tenneasee, who baa been a candidate for re
election, of sll political parties, hat deemed
himself justifiable in
leaving tbe capital to
prosecute the campaign w ith hia competitor,
and psrtiee have hitherto acquiesced in the
policy. If a Governor may leave tbe capita!
to make electioneering tpeecbes for himself,
we would like for Gov. Johnson' Know
Nothing accusers to show that there ia any
greater wrong in Sbakiag a doxso ar ao speeches
in favor of ths Executive incumbent't party.
This test, hss never, ss yet, it is true, bees tp

nle have taken excellent care not to elect a
Enow-Nothing to tbat bigb position. We are '

Opinion sf ths Press
The Louisville Democrat, after copying ths
resolutions of the Mississippi Democratic
State Convention on the Walker-Kansas ques
tion, remarks aa follows :
We agree that Gov. Walker abould preserve
aa much neutrality on this great question that
belongs to tbs people of Kansas, as is com
patible with bia situation. In speak i ig of tbe
effect of soil, climate and productions in deter
mining the question of African slavery or free
dom, he said no more thr.r. Senators Butler,
Badger and Hunter said on tbe floor of the Sen
ate, in 1854. He said no more than several
Southern Representatives said ca the floor of
Congress about ihe same time. In short, be

bill paaaed. We do not see tbe propriety of
taking grave exceptions to such remarka in a
popular speech It is not true that soil, cli
mate and productions alone will determine the
institutions of a State in relation to African
slavery ; but they bave a potent tnflaenre that i
l' it bard to counteract. How much effect they
may bave in Kai-aaa, we do sot know, nor baa
Gov. Walker aaid. He waa making a speech
at Topeka when theae expressions were drop,
ped, and laboring to atop, without bloodshed, a
treasonable attempt to organize a rebellion
ngainet the government. He refuted the pre
tenae that tbe voters of Kansas could not bave I
a fair chance to express their sentiments sttbe
polls ; and it was certainly not far oat of tbs
way to tell them that they had advantages in,
tbe soil sod climate of tbe Territory ; and
uirreiore uiai me rat oar mat iun iouhi uui
. , . .
ntTe a fttT opportunity to contest the question

er. himself, was the best judge of wbat it was

to insist upon any restraint other than tbe
As to submitting the Constitution to tbe peo
ple after it is made, that mark it will be
done, and it is idle to oppoae it. Tbe pro
alavery men in Kansas will insist upon it. We
venture to say that no delegate it elected who
did not promise to submit bit work to the pop
ular rote before it was presented to Congress.
It is rsiber Iste in the day to expect a generous
confidence to be carried so far by the o ers of
sny State or Territory, aa to induce 'hem to
agree to take tbe work of a Convention, with- j
out a chance to examine it before it is fixed
hpoa them as their organic Isw. A Constitu- i
tion is rather too important to justly such con
lidence. If the Convention should, perchance, 1

vote upon the ratification of tbe Conttilution
Tbe citizens of tbe Cnited Statee that reside
in Kansas, and intend to reaide there, should
have the right to vote . and a measure that
would secure tbeir right to do so, and exclude
others, would be approved by tbe mats of tbe
people in both sections of tbe Union. No
measure, however, that can be adopted on this
point, will please everybody; and tbe Conven
ti an will have to do the best tbey ran, resting
assured that tbey will not escape censure,
whatever they do.
It appeara tbat while some Democrats in tbe
South are not ss'tsaed, the pro-slavery men in
Kansas sustain Walker. Tbey know his posi
tion better than outsiders, snd they are all his
supporters; on the other bsnd, the Freesoil
organs everywhere denounce both him and the
Administration, la the meantime, the Admin
istration and Walker have before tbem 'be or

But in order to make a successful defense,

m:ke it the in'erett of the student to receive

The Bengal (Eatt India) correspondent of

ter to tbtt journal respecting the late revolt,
from which we make the following extract.
The massacre of Meerut ocourr'd on Sun
day, the HRb ult. On Saturday, the 9 h, tnere
was s brigade parade at tbe atation, and
eighty-five men of the Third Native Cavjlry,
1 who had refused to load and fire the new car

jiii ana locxra up. lue ameers on ihe ttatioi
bad, up to thia time, entertained no suspicion
of an open revolt. But on Sunday evening, the
1(1 h ul'., the Third Cavalry rushed from their
lines armed and furious, followed bribe Twen
tieth Native Infantry, who fired tbeir muskets
and called upon the Eleventh Native Infantry
to Jc me arid join them. They immedistely
anawered b,' rushing out from tneir linea fully
armed. The F.ngliihonjceriexport-ilatedwiih

upon the jail, liberated their eighty-five com
rades, and at the same time set free ataril
twelve hundred other prisoners, who bad been
confined for various offenses. Tbe frantic
rebelt now turned upon the Engliih residents

: several miles along tbe road to Delhi cutting !
j down numbers of them with tbeir sabers.
Owing to a confusion caused by tbe dark- i
. nest of ths nig'jt, the pursuit was abandoned, j
' and to thia fact ia attributed the appearance of
the mutineers before Delhi. They reached 1
that city, which ia only thirty-five milet from
Meerut, early on Monday morning, and were
.joined by three native regiments stationed
there, (tne loirty-eigbth, Kiftv-fourtb and j
Seventy-fourth N. I.) The entrance of Delhi
i waa for a time defended by th officers of the i
. Fifty-fourth N. 1., but that regiment soon fra-1
ternixed with the rebels, and their officers were I
immediately slaughtereo. During tbe day all
the Kuropeana in the city were butchered by j
the Sepoyt, except tome ten or twelve, who i
succ reded in escaping, to neighboring atationt
' Many of then were surprised and massacred I

The mutineers plundered tbe Bank of Delhi of
fifty lacs of rupees, ($200,0011.) They pro- ;
claimed a son of tbe Iste Mogul Emperor

Mr Deab Sis: Tour letter of the -h rnst.
was received to-day, and I hasten to show ay
appreciation of your kindness oy writing st
once. aa follows :
You write as though s cost ng-ncy might ; "Mr. Darden waa born in North Carolina, in j

poor silly South, and then its candidate put ou

the North. Tuc platform is a Oose to be swal
ed bv all tbe Democracy i bat in the la
guage of okt Benton, " to Seowked iim"
by thoae who don't like It. Tney have already
puked up th Internal Improvement ingredient
oy over-i i tti po-.r P.erce's two ei.,es. And
as just puked up tbe trro-rorrigu
by adopting Adams' amendment to
saa bill. They are death on the tariff,
and yet they nominate a high protectionist, who
voted for Ihe tariff of IHM, 18JH and 1843.
Tuey have the hydrophobia of Federalism, and
yet nominate the man that denounced JeSerson,
Madisou and the where Deeuocrary lu mors

profess great love for the poor psople, tbe deer i
peop, and nominate an aristocrat who wan led
to rsouce v ages to tbe European standard.
Tho rascals make great profeasions of re- i
apect for tbe Old-Line Wbigs. 1 understand

such great importance to the public, that we

Messks. K.oway A Co.:
Genllemei: it was my lntentun to bave
called on y ia before leaving New York for
this city, to express my deep gratitude for tbe
I Rriief and Cure of a most severe attack of
Conges-ion of the Liver, Lc.xgs, Bowels and
Stomalh. indeed, the congestion was pretty
general, and the mutt severe paint extended
even to my limbs.
In my opinion, tbe Radway'a Rel ef and
Regulator the mott ueaiiable medicineaon
the face cf the earth, and no one need be aick
wbo has accest to them.
I am, gents, your obliged serv't, are! Iriend,
GEO. R SMITH.

It is a well kco n fact that physicians have
more difficulty in the treatment ot Congestive
Diseases, than any other claas. But few of
thoae attacked, escape. The treatment of the
Regular practitioner hat proved errooeout.
and tbe only remediet tbat have been actually
effi it i t. and prove ! ia all cases, wherein they
have been used in Congestive
It .. well known to the public, that when
Cholera, Dyaent.ry, D.arrhea, Cholera Mor-
bus, Bloody Flux, snd other serious disorders
of Hsa bowels prevail, tbat most all tbe patients
that die, die from Congestion of tbe Brain,
Bowela, or some other organ or organs. Ir.
most cases, however, the cauae of death is
alleged by tbe Paysician to be the diseases for .
which the pstient waa first treated. But, in i
reality, reader, Vi out of 100, when fret st-;
tacked witb the Bowel Disorder, and die, are
liferaily mnrderc-i murdered ia the w.rd, and
that, too, by a false, falacious treatment. Tbe
indiscriminate use of Opiates and Aatringenta '
in tneee catet, win produce congestion.
whereat, if Radway's Ready Relief it gi
when pains and Diarrhea discbarges from tbe
bowels take place, the cure will be quick and
certain. If the disease has been neglected,
and has become established, the Ready Relief
should be given frequently, and the wbole sur
face of the bbdy bathed with it, and as soon
aa the stomach ia strong enough to keep down
the pilla, a dose of Radway's Regulators should
be given ; this will, in a short time, free tbe
body froir. sll disease. Let those subject to
Bowel Disorder, take warnlrg try this treat
ment, and we guaranty yocr safety. These
Remedies are sold by Driggists. everywhere.
