British Periodical Literature.
We would again call the attention of our
readers to these valuable and interesting
publications; the Prospectus of vyhich will
be found on our first page particularly
the Edinburgh Review, which is the ex
ponent of the Whig party in Great Brit
ain, having from its commencement advo
cated Freedom and the rights of the peo
ple. When the war, apparently of cxter.
mination, whs waged against Franco h,
British Tory rulers, and during which
curred the second. great struggle of Eng
land with our own country, this Review
first unfurled the flag of resistance, and
made, by its unanswerable and eloquent
Appeals in behalf of unalienable rights, the
balls of British legislation and even the
throne itself to tremble. The graphic and
stirring delineations of those events, pre
sented in the pages of that distinguished
Journal, exhibit the truest portraiture o(
those perilous days to be found, perhaps,
in the language. Its influence w as becom
ing so apparent, that at length the leaders
of the Tory party, at whom the thunders
of its eloquence were especially directed,
found it loo powerful an instrument to be
resisted by ordinary means, and hence
.they established the "Quarterly," or as it
is distinguished among the American Reprints.

Equal Suffrage. It will be seen, by
the proceedings of Wednesday that the
Equal Suffrage bill was reconsidered on
that day in the Senate, and that it passed
its second reading by a vote of 32 to 16.
Nearly the entire day was occupied in an
animated discussion, which took a wide
FOR THE TARBORO' TRESS.
January 26, 1851
Mr. Editor: I did not think, when I
penned my last article, that I could be in
duced to answer anything that might be
written in reply to it; but my former pie
ces have been so completely misrepre
sented vunintentially I hope) that I
inust.jisk one more favor. - -
Vhen 4 Veritas" attempts (however
lamely) to place me in a false position, by
asserting that 1 have used personal abuse in
this controversy, I.shall certainly not re
gain silent. He first charges me with
writing that, from which it might be in
f red that he is a foul or a knave. To
his. I enter an unequivocal disclaimer,
and would be pleased for him to show,
how maintaining that any peison had as
sumed a wrong position on a doublful
question, could be construed into repre
senting such person as either a fool or
"Veritas" next charges me with desig
nating iiim as "an old goat." It is the
first time 1 ever heard of an old saying
being construed literally. I thought they
were always used figuratively. I con
sidered the sentence the same, as if I
had .said that man is not entitled lo honor
for his age, unless it is backed by wisdom
the fruit of experience. The title, an
"aged Sir William," was first introduced
by 'Philo Veritas," who cautioned rnea
gainst "locking horns" with him; and I
was perfectly willing that "Veiitas"
should wear the helmet thrust on him by
his quondam friend during the contest, al
though it apparently gave him an undue
advantage with a "soft-p ated" adversary,
he characterized me.
As these, Mr. Editor, are the only ac
cusations that have any foundation. I will
