Can it be possible that there are men in the South who prefer Fremont for the Presidency, or who would acauiesce in his election ? The New York Herald boasts that there are already Fremont Elec toral tickets in Virginia, Kentucky and Maryland ; and it adds, " Texas and North-Carolina will prob ably soon follow suit." This is a vile slander on the Southern people. No Fremont Electoral ticket can le formed in North- Carolina mark that ! It may be that there are traitors- here and there, in this State, as there were tories in the Revolution, who would thus deliver up their Dative land to the fury of the fanatic and the torch of the incendiary ; but they are few and far between. They do not number more than one in one hundred. The election of Fremont would inevitably lead to a separation of the States. Even if no overt or di rect act of dissolution should take place, he could not carry on the government in the South. No true or decent Southern man would . accept office under him: and our DCODle would never submit to have their post-offices, custom-houses and the like, filled with Fremont's Yankee abolitionists. We would . - . not expect nor ask the Northern people to submit in a similar case and we will not submit Sup pose, for example, the Southern people, having the power to elect a President, should nominate a can didate on sectional grounds, pledged to wield all the powers ot the federal government to extend and pro pagate domestic slavery, and pledged to measures of gross aggression, without . regard to the Constitu tion, on the rights and property of the Northern people ; and suppose they should elect such a can didatewhat would the North do ? They would resist it, and they ought to resist it They would regard it as a virtual dissolution of the Union, and would act accordingly. The Union can neither be administered nor can it exist on sectional grounds. If there be Fremont men among us, let them be silenced or required to leave. The expression of black Republican opinions in our midst, is incom patible with our honor and safety as a people. If at all necessary,, we shall refer to this matter again. Let our schools and seminaries of learning be scru tinized; and if black Republicans be found in them, let them be driven out. 2 hat man is neither a fit nor a safe instructor of our vounq men, who even inclines to Fremont and black Republicanism. Messes. Reade and Pdetear. The Register com plains of our notice of the absence of Messrs. Reade and Puryear from the House, pending the struggle on the army appropriation bill. It says, "Mr. Pur year, it is true, was absent at the beginning of the session, but returned to Washington" City in time to vote for the passage of the army bflL Mr. Reade, we are informed, was prevented from attending the extra session by sickness." Mr. Puryear returned home at the close of the regular session, knowing that an extra session had been called, and that every Southern vote was necessary to pass the army bilL He had seen the bill defeated ; and he knew that it must pass, if it passed at all, by one or two majority. Yet he left But the responsibility was too great, and he returned. If that bill had failed for the lack of one vote,; the storm of public indignation which would have fallen upon bim would have been terri ble indeed. ' " , "-- ' . . . . Jones' ; Springs, Wabben. Mr. JoneaL has sold this establishment to Messrs! John E. Boyd, J. S. Jones, and J. R. Jones, for $30,000. " -- - i fe"?? Qoyeraey ties are so distinctly drawn; On one side we see the friends of Buchanan, the national Democrats and a few old line WhigS ; and on the -other the dark and banded cohorts of black Republicanism. - Mr. Fillmore is hardly in the Btruggle, as the recent vote ' in Vermont, Iowa, and Maine clearly shows. , We have the pleasure of an exchange with the Albany Argus, the Detroit Free Press, the Daily Bay State, the Maine Age, the Harrisburg Keystone, the New York Day Book, the New York News, the New Hampshire Patriot, and the Boston Post; and we peruse no journals with more interest or satisfaction than we do these. They are all that any Southern man could desire. They are now in the thickest of the fight with the enemies of the South and of the Union ; and we can assure our readers that they are more unsparing and severe, if possible, towards the abolitionists than we are. See how those noble pat riots strike for the Union according to the Constitu tion ! what ardor, what vehen.ence, what earnest ness, what steadiness, what vigor and boldness, as if all the hopes of mankind hung upon their action ! God speed and sustain them in their mighty workl It is the cause of all mankind, for if this Consti tution be destroyed, in what direction can the eye of the patriot look with hope ? But they cannot fail the majority of the Northern people cannot be mad. They must see. and thev do see. the blackness j of darkness into which the Fremont men would harry them. The papers are filled with accounts of immense Buchanan mass meetings; and Democratic speakers and writers, by thousands, in all the free States, are exerting themselves with a power and a will never before witnessed. Maine may have gone over to theblack flag even New Hampshire may tremble -in the storm, and at last desert us ; but Pennsylvania stands like the Alleghanies and the great Northwest will do the rest " Never despair of the Republic. " The darkest hour, we are told, is always before day ; but the light of Democracy never goes out, and there is no darkness to those who " walk by faith." We have that faith. We be lieve that Providence will shield and save this Union, against all the powers of earth and hell ; and we be lieve that black Republicanism is, of itself, and in itself, the largest instalment of perdition that ever came up to afflict this planet 1 How goes the fight ?" is the question asked us by our friends in the North. We answer, the South v ill vote as a unit for Buchanan what will the North do f " She will do all that men can do" is the reply ; " and if we fail, take care of yourselves. 2 he traitors must conquer us before they can reach you. Dissolution wilt not be all ot the boutn, or in the South it will be here, as well as there ; and the traitors, if they succeed,- will do so at a fearful cost or' blood." But let us elect Buchanan, and avoid all these calamities. What says New Jersey? The Trenton True American says : 1 We are happv to find that the democracy of the State are rousiuir up in an aireclions. uur ueigtioors in Hunter don county are mustering in every direction. A meeting is auveruaeu tor iviugwuua on tne iuiu instant, at rieasant, Corner on the 11th, and delegate meetings in all the town ships on the 13tu.tustaut. The meetings in other parts are so numerous that we tind it difficult to keep the track of them. A correspondent of the " True American " at Bur lington writes : ' The Buchanan and Breckinridge Club held a mass meet- ii g at the City Ilull on Saturday evening last.

Speaking of the great politi cal commotion wbicn is now telt to an unexampled degree in all parts oi tne State ot Illinois, tne at. liouis Republi can savs: " We could fill up our columns with notices of meetings occuring every week in various parts of the State, but this is hardly necessary. The Freinonters have broken them selves down in the race, even before the adversary has got fairly under way, and this will give a tremendous advantage toBuchanac as the day of election approaches. If there was at any time a doubt of the result, we have very little now. Mr. liucnanan will carry tne state tiiumpuantly. Another co temporary says : "At the immense mass mettmg at Taylorville, Christian county. Illinois, on the 16th, the first speaker was General Thornton, of Shelby ville, who said that he had always been a whig, but he could not go into the camp of abolitionism, but would follow henceforth ' the true and noble banner of democratic principles.' It'umbers of old-line whigs sur ruuuded him at the close of his address and avowed their intention to vote for Buchanan. CoL McClcrnaud aud O. B. Fickliln were among the speakers. A hickory pole 110 fact high was raised upon the occasion ; and in the pro cession the first team next to tbe band was loaded with thirty-one of the 'fairest of the fair,' dressed in white; in the centre of the wagon stood a hickory pole thirty feet bigh, upon which floated the stars and stripes. There were upwards of six hundred waaons in the procession ; estimat ing ten to each wagon would make over six thousand per sons in the procession, besides those who came on horse back and on foot."

Dr. Hawks' History of North-Carolina a work which is looked for with much interest, and which cannot fail to' be a valuable contribution to our literature. The first volume, containing the period between the first voy age to North-Carolina and the end of the 16th cen tury, is now ready for the press, and will make about 250 pages. Of the size of the subsequent Volumes the Editor cannot judge, as that will depend on the amount of materials for different: epochs and sub jects; ' ' 1 : ' We are gratified to-findf that these gentlemen are moved byvthe common Southern feeling, which dis- regards all mere party considerations in order to de feat Jtremont, the sectional, abolition candidate; and we are bound to believe that they will go to Balti more for the sole purpose of uniting oh the strong est candidate to effect that object Who is that can didate? Beyond all Question. James Buchanan. This, it seems to us, is- too clear to require argu ment. Mr. Buchanan is morally certain of fifteen States, while no one will claim even one State as certain for Mr. Fillmore. ' But with whom are these gentlemen going into Convention f With, for example, Massachusetts Whigs for we Bee it stated that Massachusetts will be represented at Baltimore indeed, delegates were appointed at a Convention recently held in that State. We have the proceedings of that Conven tion before us, in a Boston paper. Among other res olutions, the following was adopted Resulted, That the opinior s heretofore expressed by the whig party of Massachusetts upon the repeal of the Mis- ouuii vumproimse are stui tneir opinions, only connrmea by time: and they believe that the fierce and daneurous el ements of discord now let loose by that act. can never be put to rest until that healing measure shall be practically re-enacted, and the territory once solemnly dedicated to freedom be received into the Union as a free State." Can the old line Whigs of North-Carolina con sent to occupy that ground? Are they-willing to co-operate with Northern Whigs, who would de grade them, by restoring the Missouri restriction? It cannot be possible. The same Convention in Massachusetts, which passed the above resolution, expressed a preference for Millard Fillmore. Now, is it not clear, if Mr, Fillmore should be nominated at Baltimore, and the Massachusetts Whigs should refuse, as they certain ly will, to surrender their opinion about the Missou ri restriction, that the North-Carolina Whigs will either have to acquiesce in that opinion, or the two sections Massachusetts and North-Carolina will have to support Mr. Fillmore on two grounds, di rectly opposite, on the question of slavery ? Is not that clear? We think so. But will North-Caroli na Whigs thus acquiesce ? We think not. They are true men at heart, and they cannot do it, they cannot occupy this black Republican ground ; for we assert it, and defy contradiction, that the main object of the black Republicans in the present strug gle a just what is set forth in the alone resolution the practical re-enactment of the Missouri restric tion, and the admission of Kansas as a non-slave' holding State. Mr. Moore's Address. We received and read, some time since, a copy of the Address of Mr. Moore, in June last, before the two Literary Societies of Wake Forest College ; but on account of the pressure of political duties, we failed to notice it. We adopt the following notice of thia production from a late number of the War- renton News. The Editor of the News, though his style is somewhat glowing, has done no more than justice to the Address : " Mr. B. F. Moose's Address. Our thanks are due to a young friend and former pupil for a copy of an " Address before the Kuzelian and Phitomathesian Societies of Wake Forest College, delivered Wednesday, June 11, 1S56, by B. F. Moore, Esq." which we have read with unfeigned plea sure and gratification. There is scarcely any man within the entire range of our acquaintance, better qualified by talent, education, wisdom and experience for furnishing sound counsel and good advice to young men, standing on the isthmus bet ween youth and mauhoud, and ready to em bark on the untried voyage of life, than the accomplished author of the address 'betbre us; and faithfully aud well has he discharged the office assigned him by the kindness of his youthful friends. The prominent topic of this ad mirable etlbrt is the progress ot science and the incalcula ble benefits that it has bestowed upon mankind in general, as contributing to the welfare of the masses and as con ducive to the refinement and elevation of society. It is a coble theme, and nobly is it handled. As we have devoted our life to the instruction of youth, we may be pardoned for expressing the wish that Mr. Moore's address, so replete with valuable lessons ot wisdom to tue young, abounding in truth enforced with masterly ability, and calculated to effect so much good to the rising generation, as well as to those advanced in years, (for it is designed to benefit all,) could be carefully read and thoughtfully considered by every man. woman and child in North Carolina.

Welcome to Hon. N. P. Banks, Speaker of the House of Representatives. AVorcester, Mass., Sep. 6. A crowd of two to three thousand persons as sembled here at noon to-day to welcome the Hon. N. P. Banks. He was addressed by Hon. Henry Chapin on behalf of the committee, and responded in a brief and appropriate speech. Boston, Sept. 5. Mr. Banks was received at Waltham this afternoon by 20,000 persons. He was met at Newton, and escorted to Waltham by a pro cession of the civil and military powers. Mr. Haies addressed him, welcoming him back. Mr. Banks replied in an elaborate speech, occupying over an hour and a half in its delivery. The "Daily Bay State," printed at Worcester, Massachusetts, slates that the reception of Banks was a slim affair in every respect. The crowds were small, and there was but little enthusiasm. The above accounts, like many others, were manufactur ed for effect by unprincipled and lying black Re publicans. 53?" We observe among the names of delegates appointed by the recent old line Whig meeting held here, to the Baltimore Convention, that of the Hon. Geo. E. Badger. That Convention may endorse Mr. Fillmore, and in that event Mr. Badger will be bound to support him. Mr. Badger voted for the Kansas Nebraska act, and in a speech on the ques tion he vindicated and sustained the repeal of the Missouri restriction. Mr. Fillmore declared in a late speech, that " this repeal seems to have been a Pan dora's box, out of which have issued all the political evils that now afflict tbe country scarcely leaving a hope behind." This is what Mr. Fillmore charges on Mr. Badger. He charges him with having aided in bringing the country to a condition in which there is scarcely a hope left for its salvation ; and yet Mr. Badger is expected to support Mr. Fillmore for the Presidency I A Free Country. A landlord or landlords have a per fect right to their political opinons, and so have Southern merchants visiting New York a perfect right to give their patronage to whom they please. It may not be amiss, there fore, to state, that the Astor House is the head-quarters of iremont and irecsouism, in this city.

The State Fairs in various portions of the Union will take place as follows : American Pomological Society, at itocnester, Sept 24 " 16, 17, 18 " 23,24,25,26 Oct 20,31,22,23 Sept. 30, and Oct 1,2,3 Oct 20,21,22, 23, 24, 25, " 28, 29, 30,31 Sep. 80, &Oct 1,2,3 Oct 8, 9, 10 Sept 10, 11, 12 Sept 30, and Oct 1, 2, 3 Oct. 14,15,16,17 Sept 23,24,25,26 Sept 80 Nov. 11,12,13,14 Canada East, at Three Rivers, Uanada West, at Kingston, Georgia, at Atlanta, Illinois, at Alton, Indiana, at Indianapolis, Maine, Michigan, at Detroit, New Hampshire, New Jersey, at New Ark, New York, at Watcrtown, North Carolina, at Raleigh, Ohio, at Cleveland, Pennsylvania, at Pittsburgh, bouth Carolina, at Columbia, United States Agricultural Socie ty, at Philadelphia, Oct 7, 8, 9, 10 Oct. 8, 9, 10 Wisconsin, at Milwaukie, Will our Democratic friends who are fond of couDHncr Americanism with Abolitionism, publish the following re solution adopted by the Democratic State Convention of Ohio in February fast? " Resolved, That, the people of Ohio, now as tfiev have al ways dune, look upon slavery as an evil and unfavorable to tne development ot tree institutions, and that, entertaining these sentiments, they will, at all times, feel it to bt their duty to use all power clearly given by the terms of the na tional compact, to prevent its increase, to mitiirate and finally to eradicate its evils." Wilmtngton Herald. The Herald is mistaken about this matter. The above resolution was adopted in 1855 ; but in 1856, in their State Convention, the Democrats of Ohio passed as sound resolutions on the subject of slavery as were adopted in any free State. They were rep resented in the Cincinnati Convention, and their delegates voted unanimously for the platform there adopted, which the Editor of the Herald will no doubt cheerfully admit to be sound, so far as slavery is concerned. Will the Herald correct its mistake? We know what we have here stated to be so. The Herald speaks of " coupling Americanism with Abolitionism." Does not the Herald know that the " twelfth section " on slavery, which was in the main sound, was adopted by the Know Noth ings in national Convention, in June, 1855, by a bare majority ; and that within two months after the Convention adjourned every K. N. Council in the free States had repudiated that twelfth section Answer us, Mr. Herald. Again, does not the Her ald know that in the last K. N. national Convention this twelfth section was stricken out ; and that the Northern Know Nothings, nineteen-twentieths of whom arc abolitionists, left that Convention, and afterwards declared for Fremont? As a general rule, " Americanism " and " Abolitionism " in the free States are one and the same. Again, we ask 'the Herald if Mr. Fillmore has ever expressed a sentiment which showed his willing ness to see slavery extended. Nay we go further than this is he not now opposed to the Kansas Nebraska act, which opened new Territories to the slaveholders of the South? Answer us that, Mr. Herald. Again: While President of the United States he wrote a letter to the people of Boston, in which he spoke of slavery as an " evil," and ex pressed the hope that it might, in the course of time, cease to exist Is this denied ? If so, we will pro duce the letter. Yes, he apologized to a Boston mob, deeply inflamed against the South, for the ex istence of an institution sanctioned by the Bible and recognized in the federal Constitution ; and in doing so, he placed under the ban, socially as well as po litically, the people of fifteen States of the Union 1 What right had he, occupying the seat of Washing ton, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Jackson, Polk, Ty ler, and Taylor all slaveholders to utter his pri vate opinions against slavery, and thus reflect on these illustrious men and on fifteen sovereign States of the Union ? The Herald " strains at a gnat." but " swallows a camel." If the Ohio Democrats were in error, they have seen their error, and taken bet ter ground ; but how is it with Mr. Fillmore ? Can the Herald show that he has ever taken back the sen timents expressed in his Boston letter ? Gov. Wise stated, not long since, that while serving with Mr. Fillmore in the House of Representatives, he, Mr. Fillmore, more than once declared that he was " disturbed ly the clanking of the chains on the slaves in the District of Columbia P' How will the Herald explain that ? Mr. Buchanan declared, in his place in the House of Representatives, thirty years ago, that if necessary HE WOULD BUCKLE ON HIS KNAPSACK, AND MARCH TO THE DEFENCE OF THE SOUTH AGAINST THE ABOLITIONISTS. We speak from the record see " Gales and Seaton's Register of Debates," vol. 2d, 1826, page 2,180. And yet the Herald would have its readers helieve that Mr. Buchanan cannot be safely trusted on the question of slavery ! The election of Mr. Fillmore is as certain, if every Amer ican will but do his duty, as that the sun will rise to-mor row, (signal. So was the election of Mr. Gilmer certain, but he managed to fall behind some 13,000 votes. Some of the K. N. papers say that that was owing to the " prejudice " and " ignorance " of the people. It was owing to Mr. Gilmer's; want of votes, to say nothing of the unpopularity of Mr. Fillmore and the popularity of the Kansas-Nebraska act The single and simple, fact that. Mr, Fillmore is a sworn third degree Know Nothing, is sufficient to defeat him.'

Not one Democrat or Whig Senator is elected as far as near a from. The House is largely Republican. . We shall most probably receive further news from Maine before going to press. The Washington Union attaches but little credit to the foregoing, and warns its readers against deceptive telegraphic despatches. The Democratic.strongholds in Maine had net been heard from. Mr. Fillmore, we-are told by his friends here, is the strongest candidate next to Fremont in the free States ; yet we see no account of Fillmore votes or of a Fillmore party in Maine. The same is true as to Iowa and Vermont The contest is between the Democrats and black Republicans, the oW line Whigs polling a few votes. The truth is, as a general thing black Republicanism has absorbed Know Nothing- ism in the free States, and thus left Mr. Fillmore without strength even in that quarter ; and every one can perceive how weak he is in the South. One of the "Old Fogies." William C. Rives, who is at present very active among the " old line Whigs " of Virginia, has been thoroughly exposed by the Washington Star. He applied in person, it seems, not long since, for admission into a Know Nothing Lodge in Alexandria, and was refused ad mission. He subsequently applied to another Lodge, and was accepted. A meeting was held to initiate hiin, but he was not forthcoming. He concluded to back out, and was called away from Alexandria rather suddenly. How humiliating it must have been to gentlemen, to be poking about from point to point, seeking a chance to be admitted to the Know Nothing culvert 1 Mr. Rives is now an " old line Whig," and, like Mr. Nat Boyden and others we could name in this State, we trust he will remain one. Such persons can best serve their country in a minority. ARRIVAL OF THE CANADIAN I Quebec, Sept 9 . The steamer Canadian from Liverpool with dates to the 27th ult, arrived to-day.

A large Chartist meeting has been held at Tod morton, to welcome the return of John Frost, Esq. Affairs in France are dull. The Emperor and family continue at Barritz. Napoleon is said to be suffering much from diseased liver. Spain. "Nothing definite," (stereotyped.) Gov ernment has been chiefly occupied appointing new officers for all the civil departments, principally from the Liberal party. It was announced that a decree would appear in a few days suppressing the whole of the National Guards. That of Madrid has already been disarmed. In Portugal the bread riots are suppressed. The cholera in Lisbon is declining. A great many ar rests by the troops of citizens, had been made, in consequence of the riots. The arrival of a French Squadron had created much excitement The Grape Harvest is a complete failure. Samuel Medaby. Most heartily do we endorse the following handsome tribute to the veteran lead er of the Ohio democracy, which we find in an ex change: "The old wheel-horse of the Ohio democracy is laboring for the success of correct political princi ples with a zeal, an energy, and an efficiency that entitle him to the thanks of true-hearted - men and women everywhere. At no former period of his long and chequered editorial career has Colonel Me dary given such demonstration of his high devotion to the causb of the people as in the present can vass. Mr. Buchanan was not his first choice in the Cincinnati Convention ; but no sooner was the nom ination made than, casting aside individual prefer ences, he went into the canvass with the might of a true man who dares and will do all that truth and right may require. Honor to Samuel Medary 1 All honor, we say, to the man who, lor more than a quarter of a century, Amid the battle's rout and reel, Storms of shot and hedge of steel,' has carried prou dly aloft the standard of the democ racy of Ohio. Since he first identified himself with the democratic cause, the party has passed through strange vicissitudes, but whether it rode on swelling waves of glory or struggled through darkness and tempest his port has ever been the same. Whole squadrons have deserted the democratic ranks in pe rilous times, as summer soldiers and sunshine pat riots are wont to do, but Medary has always stood firm. You know where to had him. . xou can cal culate him liko a planet" Important from Kansas. y St. Louis, Sept 9. Advices from Kansas to Sep tember 5th, say that Lane, with one hundred and fifty men, attacked Tecumseh on tbe 4th of Septem ber, but no particulars are given. Judge Lecompe had issued orders to the marshal to arrest Lane and the other agitators, and Gen. Smith had instructed Col. Cooke at Fort Riley to give all necessary aid to the marshal. Gov. Geary arrived, at Glasgow - on Tuesday, where he met Gov. Shannon on his way down. .. -v yV'Tvi-: i A Democratic Procession.. ; New York Sept 10.
