ELECTION OF GOVERNOR
"We make the following extract from the Cir
cular of W. H. HAvwooe, Jr. Esq.. Speaker of
the late House of Commons, in regard to the
election of Governor. His remarks are very
apposite, and forcible. We understand there
is much trouble in the whig wig-warn, in regard
to their candidate for Governor at the next Au-
' gust elections. It is believed the nullifying part
of the whig allies, are striving to drive the re
spectable gentleman whom they used against
Gov. Spaight, oft the whig track. However,
we shall not interfere, in these wig-pullings of
At an early day of the session your
representatives were called on tow elect
a Governor for this State, and Richard
Dobbs -Spaight, Esq. who was the can
didate of the Republican party, receiv
ed a majority, of the votes, and was
duly elected. Governor Spaight is
now residing among us, and I believe
you will find him honest, capable, and
faithful to the State and the People.
His experience, talents, and uniform
adherance to republican principles
1 his unwavering devotion to tlie rights
of the people and his constancy in
the political faith, that government
should be administered "for the good
of the whole people, and not for a few
at the expense oi" the many," constitute
a just claim to your confidence, and I
douht not, will insure your approba
tion and support. It is not to be ex
pected that Gov. Spaight shall be more
fortunate than all other public men, antl
thereby escape the calumny which
faithfulness in his station, is alone re
quisite to insure. But his friends con
fidently refer their constituents to his
principles, as declared by him sell, when
he assumed the duties of his station,
and they ask nothing more than a just
and fair comparison of his conduct as
your Chief Executive Officer, with
those sound republican maxims. The
Governor was not elected without op
position. The party in our Legisla
ture, opposed to Genera" 1 Jackson's ad
ministration, nominated and supported
Wm. B. Meares, 3sq. of Wilmington.
It is contrary to my feelings and prin
ciples to speak disrespectful'y of any
gentleman, or to bring his name unne
cessarily into a political discussion ;
and I hope I shall, not be guilty of doing
so, when I say 'that Mr. Meares is a
zealous political opponent of Gen. Jack
son and his administration and was
supported by those who profess the
same politics. Notwithstanding the
affected dislike of party spir it by some
of that party, he was run as the candi
date of their party, and received the
vote of all of them, save one who threw
away his vote because he would rot
upport a friend of Gen Jackson, in
the person of Gov. Spaight ; and could
not vote for a Federalist in the person
of Mr. Meares ; and another who voted
for Gov. SpaigM.
HENRY CLAY. -It seems Mr. Clay, on
again introducing his land scheme into the United
States Senate, took occasion to narrate some of
the incidents of his eventful life. A correspon
dent of the Charleston Courier, writing from
"Mr Clay introduced his Land Bill to
day. He was in mourning, in a state of
deep depression, in consequence of his af
fliction, which, at ihe outset, he declared
the severest dispensation of Heaven which
he ever experienced. After speaking on
the subject of his bill for about half an
hour, he concluded with an intimation that
he was going into retirement ; that he had
rose from humble origin.being left in infan
cy without fortune, friends, patro.iage, and
even a regular ed jcation, to contend with
the world; that through the kindness and
partiality of his countrymen, honors and
distinctions had been conferred on him,
and that he should retire with the con
ciousness that he had endeavored to justify
their kindness, by an honest, a zealous, con
sistent and faithful discharge of the public
duties of the stations to which he had been
called. The respect with which he was
received on his entrance, and the attention
yielded to him during the whole time he
, was speaking, were most distinguished.
He was frequently in tears. The galle
ries were thronged to bear him, and the
floor was literelly covered with Members
of the other House. The estimates which
he read, show that he has deeply studied
his subject, in its various details."
CLAIMS ON FRANCE.
A letter to the Editors of the Baltimore
American, from a Washington friend, com
municates the information that the Com
missioners for the adjustment of the claims
of our citizens under the Indemnity treaty,
concluded their labors on the night of 3 1st
ult and finally adjourned. The commis
sioners allowed claims on 361 vessels, to
the amount of nine millions three hundred
and fifty-two thousand one hundred and
ninety-threedollars and forty-seven cents.
This is equivalent to about 53 1-2 cents
on each dollar awarded, without calcula
ting the interest already due on theoriginal
indemnity agreed on, and which would
increase the dividend about 10 per cent.
The whole number of memorials presen
ted was 2149, of which shout 1560 obtained
allowances ; the balance rejected. Upwards
of one million of dollars was awarded on
cla ims not allowed until wiihin forty-eight
hours of the expiration of the Commission,
and which before that period were consid
ered as rejected cases.
Cautionl The Charleston, S. Carolina
Courier, of the 14 instant, says, that
counterfeit Five EfWar bills of the Stale
Sank, have been put in circulation in this
city within a day or two past. That which
we have-seen ia dated July, 1835, No. 119
it is rather coarsely executed, but would
however pass readily with most nersons."
FROM THE RALEIGH REGISTER.
"POSTSCRIPT -The whig conven
tion of Maryland assembled on the 22d inst.
On the 23d, Gen. Harrison was unani
mously nominated for the Presidency, and
John Tyler, of Virginia, tor the Vice Pf e
ftidfiTHW. The nomination bv Pennsvl-
vania and Maryland, of the .Hero of Tip
pecanoe, renders it certain that the Elec
tion must devolve upon the House of Representatives-;
and it is time the public
mind was preparing for it."
Here, then, we have a precious confession !
" It is time the public mind was preparing for
it" (that is, for seeing the people cheated out of
the election of their President, by its being
thrown into Congress, there to be decided by a
corrupt scramble among those who, many of
them, not only totally disregard the voice of
the people, but violate the positive instructions
of their constituents) says the "Register" of
whtggery in this city.
But this is all in perfect keeping with the
sentiments of modern whiggery and nullification'
of which the "Register" is the ready echo in
this State. The only hope which these allied
opponents of the Republican party have, at any
"iime entertained of being able to defeat the
election of the democratic Candidate, has de
pended on their ability so to divide the Republi
cans, by appealing to their personal preferences
and sectional Jealousies, as to throw the elec
fion into Congress, where " bargain, intrigue and
corruption," might have full sway. Indeed, Tris
tarn Burgess, a principal leader of the allied
whigs, who " thanked, God that he had never
been a Democrat," openly proclaimed that he
"hoped never to see another election of Presi
dent made in any other way," than by Con
gress. But we did not expect to find buch anti
republican, anti American sentiments, openly
avowed (however sincerely they may have been
entertained) by the allied whigs of N. Carolina ;
and we presume it would not have been made
In a studied article. But, in unguarded moments,
" murder will out ;" and as the whole pith of a
lady's letter is said generally to be found in its
postscript so here we doubtless have a smack
of the real, inhread sentiments of whiggery, in
the Register's "Postscript."
This,vhowever, isjust what we desire. Show
us your colors dowse your decoy-flags. We
are anxious tor a fair contest ; and if whigge
ry and nullification can, by an open fight, tri.
umph over the Democracy of good old Republi
can North Carolina, why, we must submit with
as good grace as we can. But we nillnol stand
idly b) , and see the Republicans of the Slate
deceived, and defrauded out of the election, by
the craft and arts of designing politicians.
Judge Plrilip P. Barbour declines the nomina
tion to the Vice Presidency, tendered him by
the Georgia Null hers : the Richmond Enquirer
say9 the Judge writes as follows : " It cannot
but be gratifying to any man to enjoy enough
of the confidence of his fellow citizens to be
nominated to such an office ; for their good
opinion I feel much obliged ; yet I should cer
tainly decline the nomination. For this course
I have two decisive reasons the one a personal,
the other political consideration." He assigns
the prrsoiiuJ rrson, and then adds; Thm
political consideration is still of a higher and
more decisive character. 1 have but little doubt,
that there are amongst the supporters of Judge
White, many who accord with me, in some of
the prominent political principles on which I
have acted ; but, I never could consent to place
m self in an attitude which would be in direct
conflict with an immense majority of the poli
tical party, whose principles I have professed,
and in whose ranks I have stood, since m first
entrance on the theatre of public life, to act
my part. 1 have not a political aspiration in the

The two Conventions. The New Haven Regis
ter annually publishes, on the anniversary, 14th
December, of the meelingof the far-famed Hart

be amiss for the friends of our democratic Union,
to publish the names of those other worthies, who
met in Convention " in a neighbouring state.

enthusiasm ; for they had forfeited their lives, in
making war upon a neutral nation, on terms of
amity with the United States.

Arrest of a Murderer. We learn from a friend
at Selma, Alabama, that Thomas Curtis, who
murdered Thomas Cash in Anson county, in

apprehended in Alabama, and committed to jail
in Mobile. Judge Garrow, before whom he was
examined, has informed the Governor of this

Curtis to be returned to this state for trial. &

u Cease Vipers, you gnaw a file." It is charac

practise, and whose eminence they cannot attain.
The virulence 'with -which the enemies of the
Republican party in this State, assail our highly
respected fellow-citizen, Judge Romuxus M.Satrlt-
beks most strikingly illustrates this axiom.
Judge Sannders has; for about fifteen years,
acted a conspicuous part among the most pro
minent members of ihe Republican party of
norm Carolina. At tne session ot the Legisla
ture in 1819, he was elected Speaker of the House
of Commons by the Republican members thereof,
in opposition to a popular candidate. And at
the close of the session, a vote of thanks was
moved by a distinguished opponent, (Ihe elo
quent John staniy) accompanied by introductory
remarks more complimentary, it is believed than
had ever before been awarded to the presiding
officer of that House Indeed, so highly did both
parties in the Legislature estimate the talents of
Judge Saunders, at that early period of his public
career, lhat it is believed he could have been
elected Judge of the Superior Courts almost by
acclamation, had he not declined the honour in
favour of those havipg more years and experi
ence than himself it being at the session, if we
mistake not, that Judge Nash was elevated to
From that period up to this time, Judge Saun
ders has been Tepeatedly called by the people,
the legislature, and the National Government, to
high and responsible trusts, all of which he has
discharged With marked fidelity, and the most
distinguished ability. Thus much, his bitterest
opponents have been forced to concede him.
And it is the high standing be has attained, not
only In the estimation of the people of North
Carolina, but of the whole Union, which has
drawn down upon him the detractions of the'
envious, and the revilings of the malignant. But
it is the price a public man pays for the distinc?
tions conferred on him. That Judge Saunders
should be made the object of .the vituperations
and abuse of that political compound known as
whig nullifers, can be a source of no regret or
uneasiness to him or his friends. According to
the authority of John Quincy Adams, a seceder
from their ranks, " they have no honest princi
ples to keep them together their only cement is a
sympathy of hatred to every man of purer principles
than themselves ' The revilings of such a party,
therefore, can only serve more firmly to fix the
attachment of the people for that faithful public
servant who is made the object ef them.
FROM THE NEW YORK AMERICAN.
An enlighttned and liberal Legislator. We have
seen this morning, an envelope addressed to Ar
thur Tappan and gang, franked by . Speight, a
member of Congress from North Carolina, con
talning a piece of rope, with this sensible, liber
al and manly envoi.
r 1 herewith return yotl your protest, enclos
ing, as a testimony of my high regard for your
necks, a piece of rope, ifou will, uo doubt,
duly appreciate my motives, J. Speight."
Washington, 2d Jan., 1835.
The paper thus returned, was the printed Fro
test of the American Anti-Slavery Society,
against .the denunciations of the President of
the United States, in his Message a copy of
which had been sent to each member of Con
gressa document signed by Arthur Tappan,
William Jay, and others."
The above shows the folly, as well as
madness, of the Abolition fanatics. Its pub
lication conclusively proves them fools, as
well as knaves ; for the joke being entirely at
their expense, they had much better have kept
the matter to themselves, and not published to
the world that they " had smelt hemp." It was
a happy idea of Gen. Speight , in sending the
scape gallowses a piece of rope, in return for their
fanatical protest. We understand their own
friends bore them excessively about it.
EnrroR Standard. T
It will be seen, from a correspondence on our
first page, that a company of capitalists from
Now York, have purchased what is called the
Mason tract of land, adjoining the south abut
ment of the Potomac Bridge, on the south west
bank of the river, opposite Washingtoh--where
they have determined to found and build up a
New City, to be named, Very appropriately, in
honour of the illustrious Patriot now at the bead
of the nation, " JACtfSON CITY." No indi
vidual, since Washington, has more richly merit
ed this distinguished mark of respect, than our
present venerated Chief Magistrate. On the 8ih
January, the corner stone of the new city was
to be laid ; and President Jackson was to have
assisted in the ceremony.
Alabama. A caucus of the whig members of
the legislature, have taken upon themselves to
tell the people of Alabama whom they must vote
for as Electors without ever having been asked
by the people to undertake that officious office for
them. O ( course, the caucus relieved the people
from anot her troublesome piece of business, that of
determining for themselves, or by their authoriz
ed agents, who should be supported for President
of the United States. We have uniformly resisted
this kind of whig dictation, and so have the peo
plp of Nouh Carolina and so, we leel assured,
will the people of Alabama.
Mississippi. - The Senate of this state conven
ed on the 3d ult. for the purpose of electing a
Speaker, to act as Governor during the inter
regnum in that office, and until the newly elect
ed Governor, Judge Lynch, should, be qualified
and enter upon its duties. On the 7th balloting,
John A. Quitman, whig, was elected : flist ballot,
Quitman 5 votes, Robert H. Buckner 3, John
A. Grimball 2, John Cameron 1 : seventh ballot,
Quitman 6 votes, Buckner 4, Jno. Henderson 1
Messrs. Cocke and Toomer, Van Buren Senators,
from Monroe and Lowndes counties, were ab
sent ; they could have elected Buckner, had they
been present. It looks very much as though Mr.
Quitman voted for himself on the last ballot : only
11 Senators were present ; at each of the 6 first
ballotings, Quitman received 5 votes, and 6 on
the last ; whereas, Buckner received the same
number of votes, 4, on the four last ballotings.
On the Gtb balloting, Quitman received 5, Buck
ner 4, and Henderson 2, these last being doubt
less the votes of Quitman and Buckner.' now on
the 7th ballot, Quitman got 6, Buckner 4, and
Henderson 1; so that Quitman must either have
voted for himself, or received the vote of Buckner
We recollect that a whig Senator, Bateman,
was elected from New Jersey a few years since,
by voting for himself, there being a tie in the
Legislature, and be giving the Casting vote as
French Charge des Affaires. It is stated by a
correspondent of the Petersburg Constellation,
who writes from Washington under date of the
4th inst that the recall of Monsieur Pageot is
understood to have been officially announced by
him to our Government. There will not be
much regret of his departure, for in the coarse
of hiaofhcial career, he has done much to irritate,
and nothing to heal, the distentions between
France and the United States.
The President's levee on New Year's day,
was crowded ; neter mote fully attended by all
the Foreign Ministers, with the exception of
this personage, who, not only deemed it proper
to absent himself, but took special care, by ap
pearing out, on the day, to apprise those who
cared about the matter, and they are few indeed,
that he had not paid this complimentary visit.
Pax vobiscum to him and all such gentry. It is
matter of some doubt, whether there will be any
Message sent to Congress, although dispatches
have been received from Mr. Barton, nntil Mr.
B's arrival. Prudence seems to dictate, that no
steps shall be taken by the United States Govern
ment, until Frariee shall have received the Pre
sident's Message, and for which, she is said to
be anxious ; so that after all. there maybe no
great fear apprehended as to the affair termina

GOLD DOLLARS. We find the following
suggestion in the Columbus Hemisphere: It
remarks, that " nothing would have- a greater
tendency to assist the people of the several
States in suppressing the circulation of small
notes, than an act of Congress requiring the mints
to coin One Dollar gold pieces. It is, we believe,
one of the most important measure that the pre
sent Congress could bring before them, tt is a
measure which the Whig party themselves, would
scarcely venture to oppose, notwithstanding their
hostility to a hard money circulation."
We view this as an important suggestion. Gold
Dollar pieces would be a great convenience to the
people, in the way of change ; and, in cor June,
tion with the quarter eagles, would entirely obviate
the necessity of rag money under the denomina
tionof five dollars. In the South American
(Spanish) Republics, Where (with the exception
of Buenos Ay res) there is no rag currency, we
have been in a situation fully to appreciate the
great convenience of small gold coins, In having
disbursed in those countries,large sums of money
in numerous small items. Their gold coinage
consists of Doubloons, (or onzas) which are divid
ed into halves, quarters, eighths, and sixteenths,
the last denomination being just about the size
and value of what the tenth of an Eagle would
We should rejoice to see the Subject taken in
hand by that distinguished champion of the peo
ple's rights, Col. Thomas H. Benton, of Missouri ;
to whom the American people are already so
largely indebted for his- efforts, and successful
efforts, in reforming the currency of the country.
We presume it would require an act of Congress,
to authorize the mint to coin gold pieces of a leas
denomination than quarter Eagles.
