The Democracy ' pf the Holly Springs Precinct, will hold a meeting at the Court J louse on MONDAY NEXT, at 2 o'clock P. M., to appoint Delegates to the County Convention, to be holden on the FIRST MONDAY OF JULY NEXT. A general attendance is requested. To CoiiRESPoxDENTs. The Commu nication signed "W." came duly to hand. We cannot, however, publish any Commu nication without first knowing who the au thor U. "A word to the wise is sufficient." This is the name of the new organ of President Polk's administration, edited by - Thomas Ritchie; and takes the place ' of the Globe edited by Blair . Rives, removed. The first number was issued on the 1st day of May, and Mr. Ritchie good humoredly says Us had wished to issue it on the 9th of May, as on that day forty-one. years ago, he issued the first nuvxber of the "Richmond Enquirer" ' . The first number of the Semi-Weekly "reached us last week, and strikes the key note as the Organ should do of the adminis tration. ' It comes booming along the dem ocratic line upon the Oregon question, with unsurpassed ability. We wish we could transfer its articles upon. this subject to our columns; but they are too long for lis and ix VA not bfnr cutting up. The two short ..... 1 extracts which we publish are all we have space for to-day. ' In the Union we have now an accredited orsranof the administration to which all can look for, the views, feelings" and move inents of President Polk, that it is prudent or proper to make known, in the hands, of an editor in whom the whole Democracy can confide. We shall avail ourselves of it freely to give increased interest to our pa per, and rejoice in the prospect it holds out of Union "and strength to the Democracy: r - ""v Hail Storm. .. The North-Western part of our county - was visited on the night of the 13th instant, with a most destructive hail storm and tor nado, which very materially injured, the corn, cotton and oat crops in some places entirely, destroying them. We learn that the farmers are preparing to re-plant both corn and cotton. Some of the. hail stones are said to have been fully as large as turkey eggs. The storm continued on ' its course to the Westward into De Soto county, deal ing , destruction to every tender bud. It swept over several plantations in that coun ty, in most of which, the corn and cotton, together with garden," 'and other-, plants, were entirely destroyed, In some places, from 100 to 300 trees were blown down on a single acre of ground. Large quantities of 'birds were found scattered over the ground the next morning, which were tilled by the hail -also, many cattle were killed by the falling timbers. The hail in some places lay in drifts from two to three feet high. tCr We learn that there have been no communications of any moment lately, be- tween Mr. Packenham and the Secretary of State. The Oregon question, therefore, stands precisely as it did upon the accession of Mr. Polk, ro far as negotiations at Wash ington affect it. - . . .' They had a dreadful fire at Portsmouth, New Hampshire on the 4th inst,- Lops esti mated at $120,000. A great part of the j property was insured. j - ' Texas. - ". We clip the following extract from the Union, the mouth-piece and organ of Presi dent Polk's administration- Mr. Ritchie in his prospectus, after giving us, at length, the principles of the new organ upon all the great issues which have divided political parties in the country, since the foundation of the government, such as the Bank In ternal improvement assumption of.State debts, Distribution of the Land fund and Tariff, speaks thus of the Texas question: "But other subjects now call upon our at tention, and at this time transcending all others, is the question of the Annexation of Texas. It is scarcely necessary" for us to pledge all our efforts to the final consumma tion of that great questiop. None have been more zealously devoted than ourselves to the admission of the Lone Star into our constellation. Should any difficulties occur on the part of her Government or of the Whigs of the United States, we shall spare no exertions to remove them." We bespeak for the above- extract the special attention of our readers, and beseech those, of our cotemporaries of the Demo cratic press in this State, who have dealt such hard blows at us, for the position we have assumed on the subject of Senator, to weigh well the course they are pursuing. They have charged us with creating divi sions in our party, and our course as bely ing the standing of the "Guard," heretofore, that annexation was settled as far as this country was concerned, that those who con tinue to prate about it are "knaves," or "fools." We hope that hereafter, when they feel disposed to speak thus upon this subject, they will apply the terms to Presi dent Polk, and the editor of. his official or gan, Thomas Ritchie, forgetting that there are such humble advocates of the Demo cratic cause as the editors of the "Guard." When President Polk is called a "fool," and Thomas Ritchie "a knave," .for - prating a bout immediate annexation, we are content to be placed in the same category wheth er it be by Whigs or Democrats. Yes, the Union well and truly says, that "at this time transcending all others, is the question of the Annexation of Texas;" and it more than jus tifies all we, in our humble way, have" said or done. We airain repeat, that the Texas cj- i ball is rolling on! It has crushed many a lofty name it has destroyed a great party, and prostrated one of the boldest and most daring leaders the country ever knew Mr. Clay; it destroyed Mr. Van Buren, a better man; and before it is , done it, will sweep from political existence many a false heart ed Democrat who "keeps the promise to the ear, but breaks it to the senses." rjLThe Hon. Jesse Speight and lady passed through our town last week, on their return from Washington City. We under stand that Gen. S., passed through Virginia just in time to participate in the rejoicings of the Democracy over our late signal victo ry in that State. We here take occasion to correct an er ror into which some of our cotemporaries have fallen, with regard-to Gen. S. Be cause we preferred another to him for Sen ator, and have expressed ourselves pretty freely as to the conduct of some of those who pretended to one thing and done an other in that election, it is no reason why we should be disposed to do him injustice. In fact our feelings are wholly different. We know Gen. S. to be. an old and well tried Democrat, sound upon the Tariff, and above suspicion upon the Texas question. Would to God we felt certain of getting another Senator equally sound "upon these great questions tosucceed Mr. Walker.- We think, we know that the people feel as we do about it; but it is with shame and mortifi cation we confess- that the treatment we hayejreceived at the hands of some of the Editors of Democratic papers in this State lately, induces us to believe they do not feel so. If not, why were we attacked?. Whv have we been denounced? and why are men pressed upon the party who are not like Gen. S. upon the greatest question of-the age in which we live the annexation of Texas? - --- Separation of the Eethodist Church. The follow ing Resolution was adopted on the Mth inst., by the Louisville (Ky.) Con vention of the Methodist Church, with but one dissenting voice: , ' Resolved by the Delegates of the several Annual Vonjerences in the lSouth and South Western States, in General Convention As sembled, That we carmot sanction the ac- tion ot tne late Uenerai Conierence ot the Methodist Episcopal Church, on the subject of slavery, by remaining under the ecclesias tical jurisdiction of this body," without deep and lasting injury to the interests of the Church and country; we therefore, 'hereby instruct the committee on onranization that if, upon a careful examination of the whole subject, they find that there is no reasonable ground to hope that the northern majority will recede trom theu position and give some guaranty for the future security of our civil and ecclesiastical rights, that they re port in favor of a separation from the eccle siastical jurisdiction of the said general con ference. .

We are highly pleased with Mr. Ritchie's beginning. . The article below , in CD O , reference to our Foreign Relations at the present crisis is interesting, as presenting the views of "the organ' of the Administra tion: ; : . ,' OUR FOREIGN RELATIONS. "We have no time to touch these ques tions this evening, even if the time had ar rived for the purpose. Oregon appears toj De rising into tne great question ot the day. We must say that we are surprised at the language attributed to Viscount Peel and Lord Aberdeen in Parliament. Are not they badly reported? or is it possible that these statesmen should have fallen into the errors which distinguish their speeches? "In the course of a day or two, we shall animadvert on the positions, which they have taken. We may even commence the series of strictures, to-morrow. One thing is certain - we cannot abandon the great in terest of our country to their blunders or e ven to their menaces. This is not the way tor John liull to deal with Uncle Sam. , The public sentiment of our people will stand by our administration. Even if we were dis posed to question the public spirit of the whig party, they would surely hesitate to singe their fingers again, after they have been so much scorched by the Texas"llame. But we shall have no anti-Oregon party. Thft IWirfli na xt-ll e t!i C-k.L .III with the v est on this subject. Let Great t uo llic uuuui, III nunc Britain be well assured of the fact. "The Texas question is stills undecided We understand that despatches ""tiave been received from Major Donelon down to the 3d ult. The reply of President Jones has not yet been received to his communica tions. We have fresh and undoubted assu ranees, that the" people of Texas are most decidedly in favor of annexation, and will not yield the point to the present President or his advisers. Let General Houston con sult his own high character by speaking out in tavor ot annexation, and all . would be 11 " 1- . 1 a wen immediately. liut whatever course a few prominent gentlemen may take, we do not doubt the people, the course they will pursue, or the ultimate success of the meas ure. England may seek to stave off the re suit, by advising the government to pro- crasunanon, or oy interposing its proposi tion of independence. But nothing, we trust and believe,' can defeat it. The time is at hand when the people of Texas will speak a language which the world cannot misunderstand. . "As for Mexico, she may bluster. She may be induced to go to a certain point, by theh opes of British co-operation. She may tnreaten restrictions upon our commerce; but it is not to be believed that either Mex ico or England will be mad enough to dis iurb the peace of the world." The Oregon NegotlationT The National Intelligencer of this morn ing might very' well have saved itself the necessity of reading its long homily to the administration and the people. We do not understand that the Executive of the United States have. any intention of closing: the door to any negotiation with Great Britain upon the Oregon question, and, therefore, we mignt suppose that all the inferances which the National Tnteli; from the supposed "violent the United States (for instanceV "iritt not gotiate" upon such a course, leaving us the auernam es ot submission or. imr" and all the denunciations which it sn Vrmtm'tniulv P0"1 , forth upon the "shocking absurdity," "JC ruarous doctrine thut "we ought not to negotiate," (which the National In telligencer attributes-to some of the Repur hcans,) and that thus we revive "that old L,6 J?6 ts-the rmger cf u,e ciuirety misplaced. We certainly do not understand that the negotiation about Oregon is at an end; or that our administration is determined or wil ling to terminate it; or that there is no prospect of amicably adjusting the dispute ; or that lt must necessarily end in breaking up the peace of two rrreat conntri.

Texas, counter acting the rights and the interests of our own country Union. Arrival of the HiberaiaT The mail steamer Hibernia, Rvrie,arriv ed early yesterday morning at Boston via Halifax. She left Liverpool on the after noon ot the 19th ult. and has made the pas sage in a little short of 17 days, including the detention at Halifax. The Hibernia had 120 passengers from Liverpool to Hali- tax and lioston. - fcshe Was detained three days by the ice. , The intelligence by this arrival, concern ing the relations between Great Britain and the United States, is tame to the last de gree. The Oregon question had not been touched again; the belief induced by the latest tidings from this country, that the an nexation of Texas would be defeated by the action of that Republic herself, had been seized with avidity by the English politi cians, and had produced the effect of setting aside the Oregon question. Perhaps the entire lack of news cannot be more plainly expressed than by stating that Wilmer, in making up his digest of political news for this country on the 19th ult., simply repub lishes the debates of the 4th, stating that it was in part of the issue of the 5th. The London Court Gazette of the ISth ult. contains the official announcement that the Qoeen has been pleased to approve of j Mr. Robert Armstrong as Consul at Liver pool for the United States. The Stock of American cheese on hand, in London, is equal to the whole stock of English cheese of every kind. The right or Search. -The Paris Presse says it is assured "that the result of the con ferences between the Duke de Broghe and Dr. Lushington is, that the JFrench and English Governments have agreed to sus pend the right of search for two years, with drawing for this period the commission giv en to their respective cruisers." But this had been contradicted ; and it is said that the only results as yet arrived at, are the utmost cordiality between the Duke de Bro ghe and the French naval officers, and two propositions on the subject one from the Duke and the other from Dr. Lushington, which are now before- the Earl of Aber deen. The American Minister had entertained a distinguished party of the nobility at din ner, among whom was Lord Brougham, at his residence m Grosvenor place. A yerv strong feeling prevailed in and out of Parliament on the subject of a grant to Maynooth College in Ireland, which was undndicusiiol with, every prospect of its passage, n is opposed on tne grouna mm it Would seem like a concession to the de mands of. the Irish agitators. The opposition to Sir Robert Peel's minis try, appeared to have laid aside all other weapons of attack, and among them the decision of the Oregon territory, and to have centred their whole force upon this ques tion. " The New York Sun has one day later, by express through from London in time for the Hibernia: The great debate on the Maynooth grant terminated in the British Parliament on the morning on the 19th, with an exciting speech from Sir Robert Peel, the mere a! stract of which occupies three columns and a half in the Morning Chronicle. It would seem that ministers had some doubts as to the passage of the bill, when the premier, summoned all his energies, commenced a powerful appeal to the house in favor of the measure, in which he defend ed the policy of the ministers, showed the necessity of conciliating Ireland, and allud ed to a probable war with the United States as one of the reasons why Great Britain should "concentrate all her energies to maintain unimpaired the power and dignity of the United Kingdom." . . If war should come he desired that "Ire land should stand ranked with England, and the energies of a united people would en sure a glorious triumph in a just cause." fThe premier resumed his seat about three o'clock in the morning, amid thunders of applause, which lasted several minutes. After the exciting speech, the house divi ded, and there appeared for the Maynooth grant bill 323,"against it 176 majority for it 14 . l ne ministers were, oi course, over joyed at the result. It is probably the first time on record, that a religious grant has been carried by appealing to the belligerent propensities of the English commons. The premier has evidently accepted O'Connell's offer of Ireland's services to fight America for Orecron and Texas. ' It remains to be seen how the bargain will be carried out. During the present week policies of ma rine insurance have come over from London with '-a clause protecting the underw riters from loss, in case of the capture of vessels by a foreign enemy. . It is thought that the result xf the meet ing of the Convention of the Methodist Lipiscopai unurcn, now jn session in inis city, -will be a separate organization for the Southern and foutn-wTestern otates. i ne a . i mi subject is now under discussion, and from all we can see, there appears to be a great unanimity of opinion. . Two very able ad dresses were made, yesterday, one by the Rev. Mr. Pierce, and one by the Key. Mr. Capers, showing the necessity and expedi ency of separating from the General Con ference, None who heard their eloquent and earnest addresses can doubt the propri ety of the course proposed. With the par ticular bearing of their acts on ecclesiastical affairs we have nothing . to, do ; but their proceedings will be a matter of general in terest, owing to the subject involved. Low. uemocrat. Prom Mexico. The schooner Creole arrived at this port yesterday from Vera Cruz, whence she cleared onthe .22d ult. one day after the Yucateco, which arrived on the 2Sth ult. The Creole brings us files from Vera Cruz to her day of clearing, and irom the capital to the 17th. Owing to a norther's coming up. the Creole could not sail till the 21th but held no communication with the shore after the 22d. as we are assured. We have again to say that Mexico has not yet declared war against the united States, although rumors were rife in town vesterdav that she had done so. The sub ject was a very general topic of conversa tion yesterday, but no one, we presume, se riouslv believed in the rumor. At any rate it was treated with derision. Verbal com munications from some of the passengers by the Creole represent that the general leclinj at Vera Cruz is in favor of a war, and tha the prevailing impression there is that the Government will declare it so soon as it finds itself in a situation to do so with effect. Nous verrons.' The four American vessels of war were still lvinc at Sacrificios. Should Captain Stockton's squadron join them, as is antici pated, the lleet will consist ol eight vessels of war, mounting in all 151 guns. . By this arrival we hear not a word more of Mr. Shannon, the American Minister. The most interesting intelligence which we find, relates to the fate of Santa Anna and those involved in hh overthrow. A proposition has been introduced in the Chamber of Deputies that Santa Anna, Can- alizo and the four ex-Ministers who took part in issuing the decree of the 29th of No vember, closing the sessions of Congress, may avoid a trial upon the condition of ex patriating themselves for the term of ten vears. At the same time another proposi tion was submitted, to the effect that an ab solute amnesty should bo granted to all those Generals and other officers compre hended in the circular of the 6th of January, depriving them of their commands, ice, even though they had been already senten ced. We do not find that the Chambers have acted upon these proposiiions, but that they are very likely to receive their approbation we entertain no doubt. ' The revolution having been so perfectly consummated throughout the entire country, and the pres ent Administration leing so .eeure in their places, it would be an act of dignity as well as clemency to extend a pardon to those who adhered to the last to the fortunes of Santa Anna. The services of a large num ber of good officers will thus be regained to the Republic. Anil further to tranquill.e the public mind neither outraging the feel ings of the yet numerous friends and parti sans of Santa Anna, and at the same time appeasing the demands for justice against him it would appear to be a highly Jilic coun to allow him to fenve the country with those most intimately associated witJi his tyranical acLi. It is a significant fact that the liberal press, which has been hith erto clamorous for vengeanc e, indulge in no comments upon the introduction ol the above propositions. Had they leen offered before the news of the success of the An nexation of Texas, there would have been a loud and general outcry. It cannot be doubted that it is the polioy of the Mexican Government, in view of her ditference with the United States, thus to heal all internal wounds and concentrate the feelings of all classes and parties ujton resistance to An nexation. Congress is diligently occupied, through its committees, with the reform f the Or ganic Bases. . On the 16th ult. the commit tee charged with the subject of the interior administration of the departments, made their report.- Not a word is reported of the discussions upon the relations between this! country and Mexico. .These are carried on in secret session. The nature of the depatche last carried by the r-urydice irom Oalveston to era Cruz for Mr. Bankhcad had not transpired; nevertheless it was generally rumored and believed in Mexico that thev contained an offer from the Government ol Texas to reject Annexation, if Mexico would consent to acknowledge the independence of Texas. 1 he editor of IA Sigh AAseem indiHer- ent to the rumor, insisting that Mexico must defend all her rigid s by the most stren uous measures in her power. As to the ru mor itself, being the same which we receiv ed here direct from Galveston, we must think that "where there is so much snToke there must be some fire." On the 15th ult. Senior Boves. in the Chamber of Deputies, read a protest airainst the memorial or report of the. Minister of foreign Atlairs, in regard to Texas. He attacked it in every shaie, and accompanied his protest with a violent speech, abusive not only of Senor Cuevas but of the whole cabinet. When the motion founded upon the protest was put to vote, Senor Boves found himself entirely alone, every other member voting against him. . I his shows that the administration has the most per feet confidence Of the House. We,- hear no more of earthquakes, but the papers contain some rather unsatisfac tory speculations upon the immediate caus es and invite communications from the dis tant departments as to the precise moments when the phenomena occurred, their dura tion, tec. . We find in our papers a letter dated in Paris, addressed to the Mexican Congress from ex-President Bustamente, congratulat ing them upon the overthrow of Santa An na, and the re-establishment of a Govern ment of laws. He expresses regret that he could not nave snareo in me giory oi achiev ing the triumph. . Papers from Zacatecas announce the ex plosion of a, powder 'mill situated on the road from that city to Gaudaloupe. The proprietor or superintendent and several workmen were instantly killed, and a num ber pf others severely wounded.icyiir. 3L.TTEltS AI50UT T0 A. Temperance MEimxu.
