New York by 2,000 majority ; and the result is still

New Jersev. The Democrats have elected their
candidate for Governor (Mr. Fort) in this State, by
a mm moi.ritn ,nH Bpfii r(1 a maioritv in both branch- t
es of the Legislature. They have also gained four
members of Congress. The names of the members
elect are, Nathan K. Siratton, Charles Skelton, Isaac
VVildrick, K. M. Price, Democrats, and G. H. Brown,
Wisconsin. Charles Durkee, Abolitionist, has
been re-elected from the 1st District, by 1,500 ma
jority. The Democrats generally voted for A. E.
Klmore, Democrat, and the Whigs for Mr. Dorkee.
In the 2d District Eastman, Democrat, is elected ; and
in the 3d District James D. Doty (independent Dem
ocrat,) is re-elected. Mr. Doty voteu against the
Fugitive Slave Law the Democrats of his District!
called a Convention and ruled him off, nominating a
sound man in his stead; but he has beaten the rsg- j
ular nominee 2,000 votes !
The Legislature of Wisconsin is largely Demo
Michigan. E. J. Penniman and James L. Conger,
Abolition- Whigs, have been elected to Congress from
the 1st and 3d Districts, by large majorities the 3d
District in doubt. Penniman, who is a vile Aboli
tionist, lias beaten Mr. Buell, Democrat, who voted
for the Fugitive Slave Law. Our Democratic friends
in Michigan generally stood up for the Fugitive Slave
Law, but they have fallen before the tide of Aboli
tionism. Gen. Cass exerted himself manfully, and
his organ, the Detroit Free Press, put forth all its
energies for the Constitution and the law ; but all
this was of no avail.
These returns, for the most part, are of the most
gloomy character. New York, Wisconsin, and
Michigan may be set down as opposed to the Fugitive
Slave Law. Nine-tenths of the members' from these
States will no doubt vote for its repeal.
Massachusetts voted on Monday last for State offi

State was the Fugitive Slave Law. Opposition to
that law has no doubt carried every thing before iu

His own State, which has honored htm on many oc
casions, acquiesces in the "Adjustment" measures,
though they are all against her, except one; and that
one is trampled under foot in the free States, while
the Administration of which he is a member stands
by and talks of enforcing it! We think that these
matters have been considered and discussed long
enough. Let the law be executed; and if Gov. Gra
ham is determined to continue his connection with
the President, let it be known that he is one of his
advisers, and responsible also, in his sphere, for the
execution of this law. .
The Petersburg Intelligencer, a leading Whig pa
per, uses the following strong but just language in
relation to the President and his duly in the present
crisis: ' '
"The Fugitive Slave Law is there nullified to all in
tents and purposes, and we of the South can look to
but two remedies for the insult and injury which
have been heaped upon us. We must call upon the
President to exercise the power with which he is
clothed, and to execute the law at all hazards. ' We
are of the opinion that the President is not obliged
to await official information from the Marshal that
he cannot execute the law. It is sufficient for the
President to know, no matter how he may acquire
the information, that the law is resisted, and this
knowledge will justify him in using all the power
with which he is invested to execute the law of the
land. The Marshal may himself be an Abolitionist,
and may in his heart rejoice that he is unable to dis
charge his dnty, and may, therefore, never give offi
cial Information of the fact to the President. The
President has it in his power, then, to call out the
forces of the United Slates, and carry the law into
execution. He inowt, and every body knows, that
the law has been nullified in Boston that two citi
zens of the South, who visited that city in quest of
their property, were prevented from arresting their
slave, and bringing him up for examination as to bis
identity were imprisoned under notorious false pre
tences, and afterwards held to excessive bail, and fi
nal I jt, in terror for their lives, had to leave the city
without their pronertv. l nese tacts are notorious 10
', which alone can save the Union for as certain as
IU (lie riCBIUCIU tvl mo aJpilbauuu vm . ... ,
the sun shines, the South will, in the absence of this
first and best remedy, resort to the second, and that
is secession from the Union. It will not do to talk
to us of the South about the " general prevalence of
conservative opinions and feeling at the North." It
matters not to us the value of a brass farthing wheth
er the law is nullified by a multitude or by a squad
by a million of men or by a dozen. In the one case,
and in the other, the result is the same we are
cheated out of our property the Constitution is nul
lified, and the contract which bound us together,
having been violated by one of parties to it has ceas
ed to be binding on any.
But if there is this "general prevalence of conser
vative opinions and feelings at the North," why do
we not get the benefit of it 1 i Why does it not make
itself known insubstantial results 1 Why do the
multitudes of conservatives stand by with folded
arms and permit squads of abolitionists to run rough
shod over the constitution and the laws I -A curse
on such conservatism as this, say we. We would
not give Sain Patch, dead or alive, for millions of
such conservatives. Conservatives, indeed! They
are about as conservative as a man would be who, on
seeing: an incendiary apply a torch to his neighbor's
dwelling, would neither give the alarm, or help to
extinguish the flames. "
JUDGE BERRIEN'S POLICY. '
In aspeech recently delivered in Macon, Georgia,
by Judge Berrien, on the subject of Southern wrongs
and aa to the proper course to be pursued by the
Georgia Convention, he said : ,
" He could not desire that the Convention should
propose non-intercourse, as that would be an uncon
stitutional act, nor on import tax on goods of North
ern manufacturers coming into the State, as that
would be equally so. He thought that the best course
the Convention could adopt, would he to recommend,
for the ratification 'of the people, law by which
Northern goods, after they had arrived in Georgia,
and had been delivered into the hands of the mer
chants, should he charged with a high and discrimi
native tax. The Judsre thought that, bv this meas
ure, the importation of Northern goods would be
greatly abridged, Georgia manufacturers would be
encouraged, and the Northern producers would be
awakened to a sense of the power , of the South to
protect their own interests." '
This policy is objected to by some of the Charles?
ton papers, en the ground that Southern merchants
would continue to buy Northern goods, and charge
the increased tax to their customers. There is one
way to retaliate, which will go right to, the point and
need no patching; up." Let Southern merchants
be given to understand, by the Southern people, that
no goods purchased in the free States after a certain
date, will be bought or wed. A policy of this sort
would be direct, and would no doubt affect the object
ofcutting off Northern trade to a very great extent.

speech of Judge Berrien at Macon

To the . Commmukfrs'0llie"Cit9A"o) Raleigh:
-'. Gentlemen:: In looking over the newspapers;! See
a noliceVfroni the Intendant of Police, that applica
tion will be made to (be next Legislature to amend
the piesent Charter of this City: Not knowing what
amendments are -contemplated, I have thought that
this would be i jit. opportunity' to, suggest the pro
priety of adding a clause in the Charter, authorizing
the authorities of .the City to establish a Hospital ;
with power . to charge the County for, all parishoners
taken care of and attended to during jtheir illness,
that are not citizens of the Corporation ; and to make
such 'other-provisions aS In their judgment, from time
to time, the good of the institution" might require.
Some twelve years since Mr. John Rex bequeathed
the sum of eight thousand dollars," with twenty-five
acres of land, having on, it two good' dwellings,' just
at the South-west of the City, for .'the purpose of
building a Hospital for the poor of the town. " This
money 1 learn has been, and is still at interest, and
must necessarily have accumulated at simple interest
alone, to the amount "of fourteeen thousand seven
hondred. and sixty dollars."' If U is the intention 'of
the authorities ever to carry out the wishes of the
deceased, it is now high time that some steps should
be taken to practically fulfill theni. '
There is a Parish Farm within five miles of town!;
and the citizens of the City and County pay a tax to
support it ; but in the event of the establishing of an
Hospital for the Cily,' the tar paid -by the citizens
would go to the City and not to the County., r A bet
ter plan would be for the City and County" to unite
and erect a Hospital and Almshouse, convenient to
the Cily, where it could be under the immediate su
pervision of the Medical profession. The number of
parishoners is rapidly increasing around our town,
and I learn that they are Sod have been no small tax
to the Physicians. Public sentiment is such, (with
out any eood reason for it, it thinks the Physicians
are morally bound o attend all who mav call upon
them, knowing without reward; and it js expected
that they are to defray all the expenses for medicines
and many other things besides; when, in fact, it is
no more their duty, nor binding upon them than it is
upon the Grocer or Merchant to furnish their sugar,
coffee, meal, meat or clothing, . should application be
made to either setting forth their destitution. I can
conceive there is no charity in thus imposing upon
those gentlemen this additional expense, when alrea
dy ample means are provided for this purpose. But
should you deem the establishing of an Hospital too
expensive at this time, you ought to provide a Dis
pensary or some out door relief for the poor by pay
ing for the Medicines used, and such other articles
as the Physicians might direct as necessary.' I learn
that those gentlemen are willing to give to this class
of the community their services gratuitously, and this
is certainly a great deal.
By carrying out the design contemplated by Mr.
Rex, it would be laying the foundation for other be
nevolent objects; and future contributions from the
wealthy might be expected in aid of a Female
Orphan's Asylum, or House of Correction for desti
tute and unfortunate Females; Institutions which
now adorn many of our sister towns in other States,
and stand as monuments to the philanthrophy and
names of their donors. '
In submitting these remarks it was merely to call
your attention to the amendment of the charter, so at
any time hereafter it should be the desire of the Cor
poration to carry out any of those benevolent objects,
that they might be vested with authority to do so.
But I have extended mv views much longer than I at
first intended ; yet. if they should have the desired
effect of attracting the attention of the citizens and
Commissioners to some action in the premises, I shall
foel that they have not been in vain. j.
