LATES'FfKOM THE RIO GRANDE.
The latest advices from the Rio Grande are to the
effect that a severe battle had been faught between
the revolutionary forces under Gen. Carvajal, and
those under, the Mexican General, Jaurequi, at Ceral
vo. The forces under Carvajal had taken nearly the
whole town, and were considered victors of the field.
The Mexicans lost all their prisoners and ammuni
tion. Carvajal had fen killed, including Lieutenant
Graham, and Capt. Wheate was severely wounded.
The Mexican loss was quite heavy.
At the latest dates Carvajal was about to attack the
Mexicans in their last position, and, if successful,
would probably enter Monterey without opposition.
Thp Register, at the suggestion of "an esteemed

our citizens the propriety of establishing in our City,
an " Association for mutual improvement, by conver
sation, debates, and lectures on literary and scientific
subjects." We have only room to say, to-day, that
wfi iro for its establishment, and all we can do to ef-
fect'so desirable an object, shall be done. We shall
have more to say on the subject hereafter.
Spirit of the Age.
The Register has called for the opinion of all the
City papers on he subject, and we answer " agreed,

Engixe Made in Raleigh. We had the pleasure,
a few days ago, to inspect a new stationary Engine
at the " Novelty Iron Works " of Silas Burns, Esq.,
in this city, fur the Saw Mill of Messrs. Lockhart
& Jones, of Johnston county. It is a thirty-five
horse-power Engine ; was planned and drafted by
Mr. Bruce, the accomplished machinist who super
intends the works; and was executed by a workman
from New Ark, who received a premium for a piece
of his mechanism exhibited at the World's Fair in
London. A more substantially built, accurately pro
portioned, finely finished work of the kind, we ven
ture to say, cannot be found in any of the Northern
establishments; and the best of all is, this entire
machine, boilpr and all, were made in Raleigh, through
the enterprise of our enlightened and patriotic tellow
citizen, Silas Barns, and at as low a cost as it could
have been done at the North. We are glad to learn
that business is pouring in upon Mr. Burns. He

' The details of .the French news, and the admirable
speech of Senator Mason on the Agitation Resolution
of Mr. Foote, had already beramed our usual edito
rial area into a smaller compass than usual, when the
last mail from Washington brought ns a document
which we do not feel at liberty to withhold from the
reader, even though its publication should require us
to issue it without the proper commentary. We have,
therefore, deferred several articles prepared for this
number of the Examiner, to make room for the speech
of Judge Douglas, the distinguished Senator from
Illinois, delivered in the Senate upon the Agitation
" I . ! . m
itesoiuuon on last Wednesday.
This will be a most efficient apology to our read,
ers for the absence of editorial matter in this day's
paper. The speech in itself considered merely as
piece of composition would abundantly justify us
in thus making way for it. Every reader will be
struck with the parity of its diction, the precision of
its narrative, with the good sense, and the modesty of
us tone, out its importance as a political document.
arises from the position of its author on the chess
board of parly, and the nature of the subject to which
it relates. This speech contains a narrative of its
author's course upon the sectional quarrel from first
to last ; explodes the mendacious charge that he was
ever, at any time, favourable to the W ilmot Proviso ;
and sets at rest for ever the story that he " dodged "
the vote on the Fugitive Slave Bill. It exhibits in a
clear light and yet in a modest manner, the long, sin
cere and earnest struggle of this distinguished Sen
ator to settle the dispute about California by extend
ing the Missouri line to the Paaific. It proves be
yond question, that he was the first statesman in this
country wh6 proposed that just measure; and shows
that he never surrendered the plan until it became
hopeless and vain.
It is useless to disguise the fact, that Judge Douglas
stands prominently forward among the group from
which the nominee of the National Democratic Con
vention will probably be selected. It is also useless
to disguise the fact, that his nomination would be
much more agreeable to the majority of Democratic
politicians in Virginia, than that of almost any other
distinguished man who now seems to stand a chance
for that high honor. No portion of the South can
object to Judge Douglas. He has never faltered or
altered in justice to the South. He is one of the few
politicians of this day who have had the sense to be
always honest who have been sufficiently politic to
be always above-board. It is not now, when the battle
is fought and the Southern States are beaten, that he
has to make bids to the South, and talk about a Mis
souri line which can never be applied. He has al
ways been where he is now.
While every Democrat and every true patriot is
ready to surrender individual preferences to the judg
ment of his party, we do not hesitate to say, that
should the Baltimore Convention place the standard
of Democracy in the hands of the great Senator from
Illinois, it will receive a support in Virginia incom
parably more enthusiastic and more united, than it
has ever received.since the days of Andrew Jackson.
Few men before the public have greater elements of
popularity. To none can so few objections be made.
His abilities are unquestioned by any party, any
where. His age, his rapid rise, the humble station
from which he has raised himself to the first digni
ties of the nation, and the spotless rectitude of his
political escutcheon, are all reasons which impel up
on us the belief that before the National Convention
meets for the nomination of a Presidential candidate,
the nomination of Judge Douglas will be a " fore

With this number, we close the 22nd Volume of
the" Roanoke Republican," and close the year 1851 ;
and with it. we end all of our ioys and all of our
perplexities for the year, at least so far as publishing
of a paper is concerned.
While efforts have been made by our enemies to
injure us in business, which have deeply mortified
us, we are proud that we have had friends to stand
by us and uphold us. And we can with truth say
that our patronage is better now than it ever was be
fore, and our prospects tor future prosperity tarbelter.
Nothing has transpired within the last twelve
months that required any great effort to be made on
our part. It was hardly necessary that our talents
should be brought into requisition. Wherever any
demonstration of feeling was had, it was decidedly
The present Administration is Whig, though nom
inal. That a majority of the people of these United
States are Democratic, we need only to refer to the
political complexion of both Houses of Congress;
and there we find a large majority of members com
ing direct from the people that are Democrats. Xhat
the States are Democratic, we need but allude to the
fact that nearly all of them have elected Democratic
Governors. That the "Old North State" is Demo
cratic, the election of David S. Reid, a Democrat, by
several thousand majority1, is evidence convincing
and conclusive. That Halifax County is Democratic,
Reid beat Manly 51 votes.
We take it for granted, then, that a majority of the
people of these United States are Democratic that
a large majority of the States are Democratic and
that Halifax County is Democratic.
Next year important elections will be held. A
President has to be elected and a Governor and
members to the Legislature. And although we at
the last election helped to place a Whig President
into power: we shall not do so asain, because their
principles are odious. Whigs look upon them as
"obsolete ideas," and are afraid to carry them out.
Democracy is right. Democrats say so ; and Whigs
say se by their acts, though they do not possess the
candor to admit it. And we intend to support some
good Democrat for the Presidency, at the next elec
tion. We did not support Gov. Reid at the lastelec
tion, but we intend to do so at the next, because hp
has made a most excellent Governor, and we agree
with him politically.
In the Senate and Commons, from this County,
we shall support the Candidates of the Democratic
During the next year, we expect it will be our
pleasing task to record the election of a Democratic
President a Democratic Governor of North Caroli

this County, to the Legislature.

Yours is a short story since that first blow " a vale

The friends have fled from him, and joined the vast

they warn him that "life's fitful fever" eaded, he

It is very uncommon for even a few years to be

to whom death is an event in the beginning of .life,

Mr. Editor : The time is not far distant when we
will be called upon to vote for a President and Vice
President, and for whom the decisive vote will be
given is something we cannot tell at present; yet we
all have a preference of course. I am one of tlise
who have a decided preference, yet I would be will
ing to yield to the voice of the Baltimore convention.
I shall not attempt to dictate to or to enlighten tne
people of North Carolina, as to who shall be their
candidate, or to show the relative merits of those al
ready named. I shall give the names of those who
are my preference, and my reasons for such prefer
ence, tne names oi an wno nave been spoken of
as candidates for the Presidency stand prominent
upon the pages of our country's history. But the
name of Stephen A. Douglas, in my humble opinion,
is the most prominent of all his name has been as
sociated with all the stirring events of our country.
he has steined the tide of sectional strife, and with a
name untarnished, an integrity unquestionable, he
has stood the shock unscathed his talents and
knowledge, as well as experience in national af
fairs are sufficient within themselves to recommend
his name to every Democrat in the Union. He
is entirely tree from all sectional prejudices. The
North can trust him, and will do it, because he is a
Northern man. The South can and will trust him,
because he has Southern interest he is a man in
whom we can place unbounded confidence. I feel
confident in saying that he will defend the rights of
his dountry, his whole country, with an energy and a
t ellow Democrats, if you wish a noble, patriot
ic and faithful champion you can find it in Stephen
A. Douglas. He is destined to bear you standard
far above any opposition that can present itself, and
with a proud consciousness ot his untiring efforts' to
promote your cause, to the welfare of his country,
his whole country and nothing but his country, he
will achieve a triumph which no other man in my
opinion can ever accomplish. He is my choice, and
I believe I can say he will be the choice of the Dem
ocracy, both North and South.
The name i wish to associate with him is the Hon.
W. R. King, of Alabama. He is a native of Samp
son County, North Carolina, from which place he
acted a censpicuous part in our State Legislature .dur
ing his early years, previous to his moving to Alaba
ma, where he has since fought the battles of Dem
ocracy with great success. He has proved himself
worthy of the confidence which the Democracy , of
that noble State has reposed in him.. He has beend
mild in all his political acts he has stood firm in the
path of duty, and yet acted so as not to be called an
agitator. He, I think, will add strength to the Demo

also to put their names into consideration before the
democracy of this State. I shall not attempt at this
time to give a history of their political lives, I leave
that task for some futuie occasion. At the same time

hoping they may be) I shall then present their claims

the advice of a clergyman, who had seen its effects before.
It eased my C0114I1 at first, and ave tne rest at night. In
less than a fortnight I could eat well, and my cough had
ceased to-be troublesome, my appetite returned, and my
