We copy today, from the Wilmington Cemmer'
cial, without being requested to do to, and of course
without charge, the advertisement of Mr. Alexander
McRae, Jr., dealer in China, Glass, and Queen's
Ware, and Farming Implements, Wilmington, N. C.
We insert the advertisement, with he view of call
ing attention to it, and because we would encourage,
by every means in our power, the course of policy
which Mr. McRae has adopted.
Let him be encouraged.- He deserves it. We
have not the pleasure of bis acquaintance personally,
but our word for it he is a titan. Let others follow
his example. The Southern people, must learn to
take care of themselves. Let them cease all com
mercial intercourse with the North, until they obtain
their just rights under the Constitution; and in order
to cease this intercourse, we must import ear own
goods from the markets of the world. Now it the time,
If we hesiatate or give back now, the day is coming
when our efforts will only fasten the chains of oppres
sion and servitude more firmly upon us.

next Congress in favor of the repeal of this law.
The two Senators from that State, Messrs. Douglas
and Shields, are defending it before the people of
that State and denouncing the fanatics in unmeas

not be able to count upon more than four members of
thP next Congress from Ohio, W tsconsin, Iowa, and
Illinois, who will stand by this law. ;

It appears that there has been no election of Gov-
ernor by the people. Gov. Briggs, Whig, has thus
far fallen off 4,000 votes. The duty of making the
choice of a Governor from among the candidates, will
devolve upon the Senate; and.it is supposed the
Democrats will have a maioritvt-in that body. So
thinks the National Intelligencer. 'That paper also
sets down the House as doubtful.

Sun, (Ion) writing under date the 10th instant, says :
" Mr. Webster's arrival here (it is thought he will re
turn on the 14th,) has been indicated, as the time when
a proclamation will be issued-by the President warn
ing all persons to respect the fugitive act, and declaring
his purpose to see it faithfully executed. But I do
not believe any such proclamation is to be issued at
any time, except opon the occurrence of some dem
onstration of actual force in resistance'to the law.
But the law is likely to incur more opposition from
fraud than from force, and by evasions and subterfuge
to become a dead letter. When force shall become
necessary to maintain the law, it will be idle to em
ploy it for the army of Xerxes could not enforce it
against Joe popular sentiment of the North. "

exchanges."-" Look on thit 1 picture, and tharf on
that." Here is the first one :
' 'Thk Fogitivb Slave iuiw. '. At the recent cele
bration at Ogdensburg, of the opening of the ail way
frote the St. Lawrence to Lake Champion, Bishop
Perkins gave the following toast :
" Canada Annexation : When tbey wank it.".
Upon the conclusion of Mr. Perkm'e remarks, Mr.
T. P. Chandler, the President of the. road, rose and
said : .....
Mr. President: ' I heartily respond to the' sent
ment with which my friend at the other end of the
hall closed his speech, but I arise to, offer word or
two on the subjects towhich he has alluded. I re
fer to theannexation of Canada to the United States.
Sir I have heretofore thought that a onion of the two
countries was desirable, but I think so no longer.
My views have changed since the passage of the
Fugitive slave bill by our Congress. In the name
of all that is good, in the name of God (I speak it
with reverence) let there remain one spot oa this
Northern continent, where the white buzzards of the J
South cannot satiate their hellish appetites on
black victims. Let there.be one locality where the
thickly woven net of villainies, the Fugitive Slave
bill, cannot be spread. J Applause.
The following is from the Hartford Times, a Dem
ocratic paper, it is out just to say that there are
some Whig papers in the free States, which speak as
strongly as the Times for the Constitution and the
South ; but these papers, so far as both parties am
concerned, are " few and far between." The Times
says : .
"North and South. Ought the North
to complain hi view of these facts 1 Is it riffht for
the North to step forward, and declare that this law,
based upon one of the plainest provisions of the con
stitution, shall be repealed, anda that it shall be diso
beyed till repealed I-
Let us seriously ask ourselves what the result of
such a course of action will be. The South will
certainly not submit to it. They cannot honorably
submit to such an outrage upon their coaslilutionai
rtsMs. i nose persons who declare that this law
shall be disobeyed, and that it shall be repealed, go
far beyond the position heretofore taken by the abo
litionists. 1HE7 STRIKE AT THE COMPROMISE WHICH
LED TO THE ADOPTION OP THE CONSTITUTION. This
compromise related to the right to hold slaves
as property. The North was opposed to it ; the
south was in tavor of it, and could not enter into the
federal compact unless this right was acknowledged.
Had it not been acknowledged, the republic could
not have been established. The clause demanding
that fugitives from service " shall be delivered up "
was inserted ; and this clause of course acknowledged
the right of the master to hold his slave as property.
We may abhor slavery, but we cannot diminish it
by dissolving the Union. The wise men who foun
ded the republic knew that slavery would be more
rigorous if the republic was not formed; they knew
that there must be a compromise on this question,
and that it must be adhered to in good faith.
The northern agitators and disunionists now say
that this great constitutional compromise shall not
be regarded, but that it shall be repealed; and it only
remains for the North to say whether it shall or shall
not be adhered to in good faith. If it is, the Union
will be saved ; if it is not, there is an end to this re
public for the South already feel that the hand of
power is upon their necks, and they never will sub
mit to part with the compromises of" the constitution.
Sooner far sooner will they part with those who
ought to treat them as equals, but who, as soon as
they have obtained the power, take away from them
the rights that were conceded at the formation of the
We never believed that the'Wilmot Proviso seri
ously endangered the permanency of this Union; but
we do believe that the Union now rests upon this com
promise, and that if the free States, in their strength,
humble and disgrace the South by taking away the
right which is guarantied to them, by repealing tbe

the chains of slavery at the south will be made etron
ger and more lasting, and that over twenty millions
of people will be made -politically wretched, com
pared with the blessings they now enjoy. The prin
ciples of republicanism over the wide world are in
volved in this question, and it is more important than
all others. The Question with the freeman should
be as he deposites his vote Is the candidate for or
against the Croon"
We give the Editor of that paper our hand. He
is an honest and brave man. But if, as Southern
men, we again falter, or offer to compromise, or re
cede from onr just position on this question, Aboli
tionism will grow with ten-fold vigor, and that Edi
tor and his faithful friends will be silenced and over
whelmed. - The first picture is that of a demon. Chandler is
no doubt one of the ' higher law" disciples. His
doctrines are growing. They have swept Wiscon

POWER'S STATUE OF CALHOUN.
Power's Statue of Calhoun, recently recovered from
the ocean near Fire Island, has been forwarded from
New York to Charleston. The statue still remains
in, the box as originally enclosed, bat it has received
more injury than was at first reported. The Journal
of Commerce thus describes it :
" The figure is of the life size, clothed with the
Roman toga and sandals. The right arm points to
wards a scroll held in tbe left hand, on which is writ
ten the word " Constitution." The left arm was rep
resented by ,the artist as reposing on a palmetto tree,
but unfortunately the arm, as far as the elbow and the
hand, with tbe portion of the scroll it grasped, have
been broken off and lost. Much effort was made to
secure them, but in vain. The first joint of the
thumb only was found in the box. It bears the mark
of a heavv blow, and the presumption is that the in
jury was caused by a fall of the marble upon it with
wnicn the vessel was paruany lauen. uiner uau
this the statue is perfect and stainless. It is indeed
a beautiful work of art. The cold stone seems in
stinct with life."

New Printiho Machine. The recent invention
of Jedtha A. Wilkinson, of Providence, R. I., of a
rotary printing machine different from any other now
in 08e, promises to work a great revolution in print
ing. The motions of the press are rotary, and the
type being placed on cylinders, each print a seperate
side of the sheet. Tbe paper is only cut as it comes
from the press, being placed on the press for printing
in large rolls as it comes from the mills, and as many
thousand yards in lenght as may be desired. The
paper being taken trom the mill, and the necessary
degree of dampness, is printed, cut off into sheets,
and folded at the rate of 20,000 sheets an hour, re
quiring one man to place the rolls upon the press and
remove the papers as printed, cut, and folded by the
machine. Its cost is less than a double cylinder
Napier press, and it is said to possess great advanta
ges over any other press in its effect opon the-, type.

Senator Butler, of South Carolina, has' recently

said he felt little regard for posterity, as posterity had
done nothing for him. These classes make up a
A writer in the last Raleigh Star, who styles him
self " A Tax Payer," belongs to the " third class."
He deplores and denounces the bad faith of the free
States, and advises Southern men to suspend com
mercial intercourse with them until they learn to
" respect our rights and properly " ; but at the same
time he says he " still goes for the Union at every
hazard." We commend the last -paragraph in the
above extract to the particular attention of this wri
ter. Let him look at it, and ponder upon it. What
would we have been, if our ancestors had never struck
for independence, but had sunk down, without resis
tance, under the galling yoke ? They had to fight
through ; we, by taking a firm stand now, may not
only avoid bloodshed but restore and purify the Union.
We have no hard words for A Tax Payer." He
is a fellow-citizen and a Southern man, and the day
may be coming when North Carolina will need the
efforts of all her sons. We appeal not to his pas-'
sions, but to his reason. Let him think of it.
CAN IT BE POSSIBLE?
The Washington Correspondent of the Charleston
Courier, writing under date 6th November, says :
" There has been rumors here since Friday last,
of military orders and movements of troops to Bos
ton, with a view to enable the military commandant
at Boston, to aid the Marshal, if necessary, in the
execution of the fugitive Law. Un Monday, the
rumors had assumed the form of a distinct statement,
that certain battalions in Florida had been ordered to
Boston. The Secretary of War, Gen. Scott, and the
President, were much annoyed at the promulgation of
the movement, because it migfit affect, injuriously, the
elections in New York, Michigan, and New Jersey, that
were to occur on the 5th. A clerk in the Adjutant
General's Office, who had mentioned the order of
troops from Florida to Boston, was dismissed by Mr.
Conrad. The orders were countermanded and con
tradicted, and explained away. More trepidation
was manifested than there was occasion for. Had
all the rumors been true, they would have amounted
to nothing. The movement of a few companies of
troops would not have affected the subject one way
It is now said, and believed, that soon after the
elections, tbe President will give to the country, in
the form of a Proclamation, his views and intentions
in regard to the execution of the Fugitive Act. He
will not, probably go beyond the measure of abso
lute necessity, and will make no military preparations
in advance of the occurrence of any serious resis
tance to the law." . i
The law of the land is disregarded, contemned,
and disobeyed ; but the President, whose du$ it is
to enforce the law, says " wait till after the elections "!
Did he wait in the case of Texas N o but perhaps
there were no elections pending about that time
How long will Southern Whigs permit party influ
ences to bind them down ? Why do they not de
mand the execution of this law at the hands of the
President ? 44 Wait till after the elections !" Is that
to be the rule hereafter ?
Mississippi. The honorable Jefferson Davis ad
dressed some six hundred of the citizans of Vicks
burg, on Wednesday last. He vindicated his po&i
tion'in the Senate ably and satisfactorily, and present
ed gome of the pretended friends of the Union in rath
er an unenviable light. This address does not end
tbe labors of Mr. Davis. He is resolved to correct
unfounded prejudices which have taken root in por
tions of Mississippi, and explain satisfactorily to the
people the true relation which the North and South
bear to each other.
It is manifest that such a course is necessary.
There is a concerted and wicked effort making to dis
parage and reflect upon many of our public men, whose
every energy- at the last session of Congress, was di
rected to the preservation of Southern rights and in
terests. It is now high time in the recess of Con
gress, that gentlemen thus abused, the true patriots of
the land, who are moved by an ardent attachment to
the Constitution as it is, and not as it would be made,
should enliighten the people who have been led into
error and deceived upon matters touching directly tbe
integrity of the States.

lous and enlightened counties in Mississippi, with a
view of correcting misrepresentations calculated to

THE' Subsctrber respectfully announces to his 4
friends ami patrons to the members ot the L g- :
Martin and to strangers visiting The Ci!y, thai f '
continue to carry on tha Tailoring' Business: rn alt itol
branches or .his old stand, where he shall be fiapj.y :
see thecc and sell them great bargains. The subscriber
had deemed if, unnecessary recently to advertise his ,
business. as he v-aso well known throughout the State;
bnl tor fear his old friends and customers might be under "
the impression that he was carried awv by the great
"tornado which pawed Northwards a few days ago,
ne has thoughf it best to inform them that he is still rn
business and hopes they will give him a call. He
wonld say tu his old friends and customers that the lib-
eral patronage he has received since he has been here;
has eemented him still more' closely to the good old
Mate of North Carolina; and he frosts that their patron
wlU continue tob.e biowed on one who feels ho
kindly appreciates it; and for his pari there shall be
nothing-lacking to give entire satisfaction. He miuht
say more, buNt is sufficient for him to say ththe ha
teel.ngs ofa Jorth Carolinian. He is permanently
located here his interesis are here and here he ex
perts to lire and die. .
The Subscriber is a friend and well-wisher to all
mechanical business in the "Old North State.". Ha
thinks it the duty o(our people to encourage our own
hard-working mechanics, and keep them with us, and
not drive them trom our borders by encouraging manu
facturers at a distance from us. VVc may wish for good
times and Stale improvements, but we will never see
them unlit we come to depend or. our own mechanics,
on home manufactures and home industry. When we
come to do this then will we see our Cities and Towns
flourishing; aod our means will not be seat ofi to the
"great City ' of New York or Boston for articles that
can be made in this Stale as well as at either of thes
places, and on as good terms. '
The Subscriber has on hand beautiful assortment of
GOODS, selected by himself in person in Ibe Northern
Markets, ol the latest and most approved styles and
patterns. His Goods were purchased this Fall, and are
entirely new. They were bought on as good terms ap
those of any House in this City; and he flatters himself
that he can offer a liberal if not better bargains than
any other Establishment in this City or in the United
States -Call and examine for yourserves. Yon must
be your own judges and you will find this no were
putt. I he Jsubscriber considers it unnecessary to
s-iy anything about his skill in cutting or making, as-
his business is conducted by himself ; and he will leave
it to those who deal with him to judge of bis capacity in
this respect. H is experience in business is such, 'and
he has been so long before Hie public, that he will not
stoop to comment his own skill and attainments. He
leaves it to his friends and customers to judge if his
superiority over many who presume to call tbemselve
Tailors, or Cutters, or Artists " -f you please. His
workmen cannot be surpassed by any. North oroulb.
and he invites the public to call and try him before pur.
chasing elsewhere. Ho pledges his word for good bar
gains, as he is determined to sell low.
His Stock comprises every article kept in eitritlit
Establishments. There is nothing vou may call for
"which you cannot get. Call and try the well-known
Establishment, one door North of the Post Office.
The Sul'seribpr's Stock comprises in pan Super black
French Cloths and Cassimeres plain and doeskin; of
all qualities and prices, and a splendid assortment of
fancy Cloth, which for colors and quality cannot be snr.
passed. Also, a beautiful lot of plain black Satin Vest
inland a superb article ot fancy French Silk' and
Satins for parties, with a choice variety of Fancy Cassi
meres for winter wear, and verv large lot of fancy
French Cassimeres, which will be disposed of oa a very
