THE OLD ISSUES.
The great question between Free Soil
and Slavery-between the principles of
the Wilmot Proviso, and the equality of
confederate rights claimed by the South
has entirely ' absorbed public attention
throughout the country. No other sub
ject now attracts attention in the political
field. No measures of policy are discuss
d7 save such as ate connected wi'h this
t+ rttorial question.
But it may not be amiss for the De
mocrats to keep an eye upon Whig mo
vements and sentiment in reference to
other great -questions which may be re
vived. An open avowal of measures of
policy to be advocated in case of-their ad
vent to power, is shunned by the Whigs.
They have not dared to take open ground
gainst the great leading tneasures of na
tonal policy established by the Democra
tic party., But an occasional declaration
from high authority occasionaly peeps out.
The following language was used by Mr.
%Vebster in his Marshfield speech, in the
iourse of which he was assigning reasons
why he should support Gen. Taylor:
.-In the third place. if Ihave an' lst es
i. ate-if an nperienceut; t i-t
eg) bae enabledtme-to know anhip
'e=pi cp r an
TRY -&'OSTE RING TH H LABOR o/
the country in its va7ious Lranches."
This squints very much towards the .re
vivl of a National Bank, and a high, pro
tective tariff. Indeed, what is .it but 'adi
rect avowal of "hobtility to the Sub-Trea.
sury. and to the present revenue tariff sys
Let not the Democrats be lulled into a
ralse security. They are fighting manful
ly against those sectional heresies. which
the Whig party would make triumphant
in the election of their candidates, by
which a majority in Congress would beab
solute, and would legislate to .carry out
party sectional views, to which the Presi
dent would either assent willingly, or
would be pledged not to defeat by a vote.
But they should not forget that others ques
ions of policy may be legislated upon.
The history of 1840 should not be forgot
en. Many thousands of oppnnents of
protective tariffs and National Banks, in
this State, and in fact, in every Statd of
the Union. were induced to vote for the
Whig candidates. Yet when that party
triumphed, two of its first and leading
easures were a high protective tariff'and
monster bank. We would probably see
repetition of the then attempted fraud
carried out again, in case of the success
of the Whigs in 1848, The tariff of 1842
might be renovated, or one with features
as odious, and another charter for a mon
ster bank,passed, with no friendly veto to
be interposed to defeat it. The veto pow
r would become a dead letter in the con
stitution if the Whigs should triumph.
Countereiter Arrested -A man who
gives his namte as Collins Smith. and says
he lives in Floyd Country. Georgia, though
native of Spartanbhurg District. S. C.,
was arrested near this place on last Thura
day charged with having passed Counter
feit Moneys lHe passed through this vil
lage and exchanged seven dollars of his
spurious coin with one of our grocery
keepers, but had not beetn gone long be
fore the fraud was discovered, and he pur
sued and apprehended. A portion of his
ounterfeiing implements wore found in
his pockets, and a smnal1 quantity of the
base metal he used, in his saddle-bngs.
He is now in jail-sole tenant of that build
ing, and the first one it has had for a long
time. Our County. it seemns, would have
ittle or no use for a prison, were it not for
onfining rascals who come amongst us
from other quarters-or else, like the prim
ters, it cannot get its dues.
The seven do!lars whuieh Smith exchan
ged here are imitations of the Spanish dlol
ar, and dated 1816, though the stamp
found in his pocket is engraved with 1818.
which makes it proable that he has differ
cot stamps ; and it is quite likely he may
connected with a gang of regularly or
ganized swindlers. We sthall wait for far
ther developments.-Mlountainl Banner.

The Hon. A. H. Sevier.-In a biogra
pbical sketch of the lon. A. H. Sevier,
published in the N. O. Daily Crescent, the
ancestors of this distinguished Senator are
described as natives of South Carolina,
sprung from a Hugenot family who emi
grated about the middle of the last centu
ry. -Subsequently they removed to N.
Carolina, and settled on the waters of the
French Broad. They were identified with
most of the military events of the Revolue
tionary War in the South, and- were at..
ways couspicuous in the conflicts with the
Indians, so frequent in the early settlement
of that region. His grandfather, Col. Se
vier, (afterwards Governor of Tennessee,)
held an important command at the memo
rable battle of King's Mountain, and two
of his uncles belonged to the callaut baud
who, under the leadership of Marion. kept
the spirit of liberty alive in South Caroli
na, when hope itself was banished from
that State by the overthrow of Gates, In
flue, from the earliest settlement of the
-country down to the time when the battle
of Nicko Jack vr'as fought. the Seviera - -
were grer foremost among the defenders.
of the soil, whether the enemy were Brit
ish. Tories, or Indians, and on all such'oc"
casions they distinguished themselves for -
gallantry. One of his uncles, familiarly
knowo as Jack Sevier, rendered himself .
famous by his attempt to seperate from
North Carolina, and to form into an inde
pendent state, that portion of her territory
then known as ' Franklaud.' The Legis
lature of North Carolina. passed an edict.
of outlawry against him, and authori;ed4
the Governor to offer ?300 for his appre. -
hension. His defiance of the-authorities,
his arrest, and his rescue at'- Lincolnton, - -;
are matters of history which need no rep.

The American Loan.--The London
correspondent of the New York Courier &
Enquirer alludes to the negoiation of the
American Loan in the London Money
market as follows :
- If there were no other cause for con
gratulation, it would be highly gratifying
to the pride of every American to knowr
that when half Europe is in the market to
borrow at very high rates of interest, when
the remainder of Europe is anxi'ona-to ber
row at yet higher rates., when a loan for - .
t wo millions of console is langing over the -
London market, when all the Railroads
are moving heaven, earth, and the direc
tori friends to borrow money on uudenia
hIe security, at six per cent and , bdnuu,. -
when the securities of old established for-.
eign stock can be procured to pay six, sev
en. or eight per cent, when the. calls on - -
Rail-roads for this month alone is ?E.587,
186. when the sharee of railroads can be
purchased to pay eight per cent of interest,.
it must indeed be0 a high source of interest:
to every American to know that his coup
try, in such troublesome times as these,
has come into the European market, and
borrowed It at a rate below six per cent."
Discovsryg in Mississippf.--In the south
western part of Franklin country, Miss.,
there is a platform or floor of hewn btonle,
nearly polished, some three feet under
ground. It is about one hunllred and
eight feet long amnd eighty feet wide. It
extends due north and south, and its sure.
face is perfectly level. The masonry is
said to he equal, if not superior, to any
work of modern times. Trho land above
is cultivated, but thirty years ago it was
covered with oak and pine trees, measur..
ing from two to three feet in diameter. It
is evidently of very remote antiquity,.and .
the. Indians who reside in the neighbor-.
hood bad no. knowledge of its existeoce pre- - -
vious to its recent discovery, Nor is there
tradition.among them from any idea of the
object of the work, or the people who
were -its builders. There is also a canal
and. well connected-with it, but they never
have been.explored., A subierraneous pas.
