Messrs. Wilder aud Littlejohn.
The Register of Wednesday last makes the fol
lowing notice of the discussion in this place between
Messrs. Wilder and Littkjohn :
It is sufficient, for the present, to say. Ihat Mr. Little
jolin sustained himself with marked ability making one
of tlie linest ofl'orls that the campaign has elicited, and en
tirely demolishing his windy opponent, whose peculiarity
it is to mistake sound for sense and bald assertion forargu
niiiit." We are not surprised at this nor, indeed, would
we he surprised at any romance or misrepresenta
tion which might appear in the Raleigh Register.
That paper, however, seems to cherish a peculiar
antipathy towards Maj Wilder. It dislikes him be
cause of his deserved popularity, and his powers as
a public speaker ; and it has studiously, for years,
treated him with gross unfairness and injustice.
Stil! Maj. Wilder's friends do not complain of this,
nor ito they ask the Register to change its course in
this respect. Censure, and attempts at depreciation
from some quarters, are much to be preferred to
Now, wc hesitate not to say that no gentleman of
either party, who heard the discussion between Maj.
Wilder and Mr. Littlejohn, will endorse the above
account of it given by the Register. Certainly, Mr.
Littlejohn acquitted himself not with "marled
ability " but he did handle his points ingeniously ;
and he delivered, what his most attached personal
friends would call a passable, respectable speech.
He was listened to with patience and attention, by
an audience, the greater portion of whom were Bu
chanan men ; and yet, though there were many
Know Nothings present, he received no applause ei
ther at the commencement, or during, or at the close"
of his remarks. Either he spoke very indifferently
anvl presented his points very badly, or there was no
life in his party friends who were present. The lat
ter is true. " Sam " appeared to be deceased and
laid out, and Mr. Littlejohn was preaching his funeral.
When Maj. Wilder rose to reply he was greeted
with long and loud applause, which was kept up, at
intervals, until he closed. We never heard a more
successful, or a more triumphant reply.
The Register has not added to Mr. Littlejohn's rep
utation as a public speaker, by the above notice.
We saw, in that paper, a few days since, an ac
count of the discussion in Nash between these gen
tlemen a great flourish about the " star-spangled
banner," &c. We learn that even this incident of
the banner, so carefully gotten up by Mr. Little
john's friends, was used with overwhelming effect
by Maj. Wilder, against Know Nothingism and
"Mexican Whiggery;" and that Mr. Littlejohn lost
there, as at every other stage of the discussion. As
to the effect produced by Mr. Littlejohn in Nash, we
lave that to be determined by the votes on the 4lh
The "true Fire of the Flint."
A few days siuce, Mr. Pizzini, Confectioner and
merchant of this City, received a box of goods from
the house of W. M. Tiers & Co., of New York ;
and on opening it, he found, neatly bundled up, a
p.irc.l of Fremont and Dayton. Jlags. Mr. Pizzini
had not ordered any such articles, nor did he know,
until lie saw these Hags, that he was dealing with a
black Republican house. The flags" were promptly
Sent hack by Express, with the following letter:
IUlkigu, N C, Sept. 29, 1856.
MfcssRs. M. W. Tiers & Co Sir I beg to returu the
bundle ol r'remout and Dayton flags, that was put in the
tux; nf giHK's sent ine from your house. Allow me to say,
tliui we have uo use, in this portion of the Union, for any
nifh article, and consequently I have sent them back to
vim, this day, per Adam Express. You will be much more
Iji-nelilted by sending them to Massachusetts than to 'orlh
F. A. PIZZINI.
We would advise the Democrats in every County
to supply themselves with Electoral Tickets in ample
lime for the election. We will send them to any
part of the State, (Iree of postage,) for seventy-five
O-'its per hundred, three dollars for five hundred,
or live dollars per thousand.
U is important that every ' precinct in the State
khould be supplied, as the vote will not be counted
unless the ten Electors are voted for.

Tuesday moming last, on a visit to Concord, N. H.
"""fiements have been made to receive him with,
every demonstration of respect on the line of travel,

Prof." Hedrick, of the University. "
As a matter of justice to Prof. Hedrick, we pub
lish to-day wliat he styles his "Defence" against
the charge of being a black Republican.' There is
not a point made or presented in this " Defence "
which could not be triumphantly met and exposed;
but surely it cannot be expected of us, or of our
correspondent, "An Alumnus," or of any citizen of
this State, to argue with a black Republican.
The Professor closes his "Defence" with the
opinion that " those who prefer to denounce " him,
"should at least support their charges by their
name." The author of " An Alumnus " is a gentle
man of high character, and -entirely responsible for
whatever he has said, or may say. He is a resident
of this place, and his name can be known, if at all
We adhere to our opinion, recently expressed in
the Standard : The expression of black Republican
pinsons in our midst is incompatible with our hon
or and safety as a people. That man is neither a
fit nor a safe instructor of our young men, who even
inclines to Fremont and black Republicanism.
This is a matter, however, for the Trustees of the
University. We take it for granted that Prof. Hed
rick will be promptly removed.
Fusion in Pennsylvania.
Read the following from the Pennsylvanian, and
see how the friends of Fillmore are playing into the
hands of the black Republicans in Pennsylvania:
"Fpsios Fremont Statb Ticket. Not only are the pro
fessed friends of Millard Fillmore urged bv (he presses
which have his name as a candidate at the Dead of their
columns, to vote for the Fremont Fusion State Ticket in
October, but also to vote for the Fremont Union condidates
for Congress aud the Legislature. The object in this is to
endeavor to send aid to Giddings and Burlingame in the
House of Representatives, and to elect David Wilmot Uni
ted States Senator. And yet, with all this aid to the Fre
mont ticket, these papers pretend to bo the friends of Mr.
The union of the Native Americans and Black Republi
cans, on the Fremont State Ticket, is only a part of the un
principled affiliation that has been brought about between
the antagonist factions. They have formed union tickets
for Congress and the Legislature; by carrying the latter,
David Wilmot is to be elected to the" United States Senate
from Pennsylvania. Are honest and true men willing to
assist in consummating this iniquitous bargain? We will
not believe it."
The Charleston Mercury comes to ns in
mourning for the death of one of its editors, Wm.
R. Taber, jr., who fell in a duel with Edward Ma
grath, on Monday afternoon last. The difficulty
originated from the publication of communications
in the Mercury, in reference to the Hon. A. G. Ma
grath, a candidate for Congress from the Charleston
District. The name of the author of the communi
cations was not demanded, but a peremptory chal
lenge was sent and accepted, and, at the third fire,
Mr. Taber fell, the ball taking effect in his head.
The weapons were pistols, and the distance ten paces.
The surviving editor of the Mercury thus speaks
of his late associate :
"In the presence of death, the death of one
who has been intimately associated with us for years,
and who breathed as true a heart as ever beat on
the soil of Carolina, we bow our heads in sorrow
and in suffering, and pass by all considerations of
party conflict, in the sense that we have lost a friend,
true and tried, and a brother in the hard duties that
make up our connection with the public life. It
will not be easy to find a braver and more self-sacrificing
spirit it will not be often that the communi
ty wiil be called upon to mourn over the extinction
of a more biilliant and generous intellect."
pjjT Mr. T. S. Garnett has resigned his place as
Engineer and Superintendent of the North-Carolina
Railroad, having been appointed Chief Engineer of
the Pensacola and Georgia Railroad. In his letter
of resignation, addressed to Mr. President Fisher, he
saj'S : " From the experience of the past six months,
and the constant increase of business on the Road,
I feel confident in expressing the opinion that your
Company will be able to pay a dividend of six per
cent, for the fiscal year 1857-8." Mr. Fisher states
in his reply that he parts with Mr. Garnett with re
gret; and he pays a high compliment to his profes-"
sional ability and fidelity.
The Silver Goblet presented by Capt W. H.
Harrison to his Company, the Oak-City Guards, is on
view at the jewelry store of Mr. Chas. II. Thompson.
It is a beautiful and massive piece of workmanship,
and evinces at once the good taste of Mr. Thompson,
and the liberality of the gallant Captain and bis
high appreciation of his Corps. This goblet will be
contended for at target practice to-day (Friday) and
will be presented to the successful marksman by H.
S. Smith, Esq. The winner will make a decided hit.
New Style of Pictures. By an advertisement
in another column it will be seen that Mr. Copeland
has removed to the rooms over the Post Office,
where he is prepared to execute all orders in his
line. We have seen specimens of his "Color Type"
pictures, as he calls them, and they are beautiful.
AVe believe this style is his own invention, or dis
cover'. It is a Daguerrootype painted in oil, and
it is permanent and lifelike. Mr. Copeland is a na
tive artist, and deserves success, which his talents
will surely win.
The Charlotte Whig thus notices the Cards
of Messrs. Osborne and Williamson, published in
"Messrs. Osborne axd Williamsox These gentlemen
have thought proper come out in Cards to the public,
stating that they intend voting for Mr. Buchanan. It was
our intention to notice their Cards, but we have concluded
not to do so, believing that their defection cannot jnjure
our party. They believe the occasion requires them to vote
the Democratic ticket, we thing differently, and there we
separate. All we ask our friends to do, who have stood
firm thus far, is to wait a few weeks lomjer, and if suck
demonstration are not manifested, as will satisfy them
that the position of these two gentleman are untenable, then
we will admit we are wromj." .
We are in a fair way, it seems, to have the aid of
the Charlotte Whig also for Mr. Buchanan.
The Weather. Weather still quite cool, and
frost here on Wednesday night. The pea crop is
large, and was said to be very promising, but it must
have been injured by the frosts. If entirely cut off,
the loss wi'l be serious to both " man and beast,"
It will raise the price of corn from twenty-five to
fifty cents per bushel.
New York. State Fair. Watertown, Sept 30.
The entries at the State Fair to-day were much larger
than those of last year. The display of horses, cat
tle, sheep and swine is of the most superb descrip
tion. The display of engines and machinery of all
kinds is very fine. Three printing and lithograph
presses are in operation. The dairy aud domestic
department is excellent.

at I o'clock $jaiaP.einoon. He was received by a
crowd of citizens and welcomed by the Mayor. The
'President made. a brief reply, the crowd cheering
alternately for Pierce and Fremont. The President
proceeded to Nashua via Worcester, having declined
an invitation of political friends to visit Boston.'
Boston, Oct 1. Lnus B. Coming and bully Bur
lingame, have both been renominated for Congress,
by the Americans and Republicans.
"What the Democrats of the North say. '
The Northern Democratic journals are largely en
gaged in the important and useful work of demon
strating, by facts and figures, io the people of the
free Stales the ruin that would come upon them in
the event of Fremont's election, and .the consequent
dissolution of the Union.' ; All the Northern Demo
cratic journals that we see,- or from which we see
extracts in other papers, distinctly declare that the
Southern people will not and ought not to submit to
the rule and to the measures of the black Republi
cans. The Troy (N. Y.) Budget says:
" The disunion of these States is the platform up
on which John C. Fremont has taken his stand. Ho
can no more move off nor come down than the Alle
ghanics can move off or come down. He is fastened
there, like an island filled with disease, in the midst
of the boiling waves of fanaticism. What a "bad
eminence " is his ! Look where he stands. He fears
he and his echoes and organs to look upon the
past. The sacred memories of the revolution ring
like curses in his ears. he will not face them. The
names of Washington, Jefferson, Monroe, Madison,
Rutledge, Pinckney, Ferguson, Jackson come to him
as if he had been guilty of an attempt to murder
them as, indeed, he is guilty of trying to murder
the.r reputation. He looks to the future only. He
looks forward to a divided brotherhood of States; to
a scattered family of freemen ; to a defiled national
hearthstone; to a broken covenant; to a mutilated
constitution ; to a dissolved Union ; and, finally,
once again, to euipioy the words of jChoate, " to an
unconstcrated aad revolutionary banner, from which
fifteen stars have been erased or hate fallen!" Dis
union has no past!"
We copy the following eloquent and impressive
article from the Providence (R. I.) Post : "
"The Union is Straining her Fastenings!"
Such is the language of the old line Whigs of Balti
more, in an address to the people : " The Union is
straining her fastenings, and calls upon all patriotic
citizens to come to her rescue."
Truer words, it is our honest belief, were never
spoken. The Union is straining her fastenings.
The storm of fanaticism, now wildly raging in six
teen States, threatens to part her fastenings and car
ry her down.
Our readers will bear us out in saying that we are
not an alarmist. We have never threatened tire and
sword, nor heeded threats of civil war or disunion
from others. We have had faith in the Union in
its stability and almost in its eternity. We be
lieve, now, that it is destined to stand.
But wc do not believe that it could long survive
the triumph of bitter sectionalism in the election of
John C. Fremo.it. We do not believe that any fatu
ity can be profitably kept together after the members
of it have illustrated their haired of each other by
open acts of hostility.
The question of ttie continuance of the Union is
now reduced to this simple question : Whether the
black Republican party, in its avowed hostility to
the South, actually represents the North, or a ma
jority of the people of the North ? This question
will be decided in November.
If it is decided in the affirmative, then we shall
say unhesitatingly that the great blow of disunion
has been struck. The South will not wait to be
"subjugated." It will nevei trust itself to the ten
der mercies of a party whose, very existence rests
irpon hatred of its people and hostility to its institu
tions. Men of Rhode Island, you may as well look this
fact squarely in the face ! Xojifiten Ulutes of this
Union iioiihern, southern, eastern, or western
will ever submit to be governed by sixteen other
States, whose triumph has been secured by appeals to
prejudices against their institutions and by procla
mations of hostiliti to their citizens!
Should John C. Fremont take the presidential
chair to-day as the representative of the party which
placed him in nomination, and which supports him
by appeals to sectional feelings and prejudices, he
would hate to sit there without a sing'e cabinet offi
cer from any southern State ! Vo man in the South,
with a particle of reputation, would dare to accept,
or icould want to accept, an appointment us one of
his advisers !
Could a President thus circumstanced administer
the government thirty days? Could he command
the respect of the army or navy thirty hours?
Would Congress ever assemble to legislate for the
country ? With thirty senators and ninety repre
sentatives voluntarily absent, what would its legis
lation be worth ? With a cabinet and all the im
portant officers of the government appointed from
the North, how long, think you, could that govern
ment be sustained V
It 1s folly to talk at such a time as this of the im
portance of the Union to the South. So far as
maintaining slavery is concerned, the South gains
nothing by the Union, if we except the occasional
return of a fugitive. Slavery would stand on a firm
er basis with the Union dissolved than it does to
day. It would only have to expatriate its thousands
of free negroes, and send them North in a single
avalanche, to place itself beyond the reach of inter
nal disaster. This done, the West, following its
rivers, would become its ally ; and in less than three
years, New England would stand alone bankrupt
We are told sometimes that it is not the purpose
of Mr. Fremont and his friends to lattack the insti
tutions of the South through the machinery of the
government. This assurance, sincere or not, is
worth nothing. The South knows what the party
is, and who its leaders are, and what is the food
it lives upon. And it will never wait mark our
words! it will never wait to test the truth of
this declaration. It has too much at slake.
We shall not stop here to remark upon the vast
importance and value of the Union to Rhode Island.
It seems to us that a half-blind fanatic must per
ceive it. As a manufacturing and commercial State,
what could we do alone ? What could we do, even
in a conlederacy of all the free States? What could
we do without the South? To say nothing of poli
tical and national weakness, what should we be as a
commercial and a manufacturing people thus cut off
from our best market ?
We caution our" people again not to be deceived
by the syren song of such as would have us believe
that the Union cannot be dissolved. The necessity
of separation is being forced upon us by the action
of the black-republican abolition party. All the
South asks to know is, whether that party correctly
represents the North. If it does, then it asserts and
we believe that the breach has become a fixed fact.
To cry peace at such a time is a crime of which we
will not be guilty. " The Union is strainino her
fastenings, and calls upon all patriotic citizens
to come to her rescue !"
Pacification of Kansas. the Latest News.
The following from the St Louis Republican of the
22d instant will be read with gratification :
"From Kansas. The steamer David Tatum ar
rived yesterday afternoon from St. Joseph. She
left that port on Wednesday last. At Kansas she
took on board about 350 citizens of Missouri, who,
in obedience to the proclamation of Gov. Geary,
had given up their military organization and returned
to Missouri. They were principally from the coun
ties of Howard, Boone, Saline, Cooper, and Franklin.
Lawrence was in possession of United States troops,
by whom 90 of Lane's men had been made prison
ers. Lane fled from Lawrence with the remainder
of his ragamuffins, and was in Nebraska.
The train from Jefferson City last evening brought
down several gentlemen direct from Kansas. They
were passengers on the Aubry, and bring ihe latest
news. From one of them we learn that the whole
of Gen. Reid's force had been disbanded, aud had
returned to their homes. Gov. Geary was at Le
compton with 1,000 United States troops, and de
termined to maintain the peace and execute the laws.
Under his orders ninety men had been taken prison
ers at Lawrence. The report of Lane and his band
having fled to Nebraska is confirmed. They are
said to have stolen property sufficient for them to
live on during the coming winter, if they cakeep
together so long. - sf?jf
There was a report last , evening that severarjlives
were lost, on each sideyat Lawrence, but -tliisisbe
lieved to be incorrect It is very gratifjfipjkq far,
these tidings, and to know that the violeVfcjYwMch
has so long prevailed in Kansas is St anegCGov.
. Geary began right, and a like firm- purpose to pre
i Serve law and to punish all offenders against it, will
$oon make life and property as Becure in Kansas as
in any State of the Union."

Death of Judge Toomer. We regret to hear of
the death, at Pittsboro' of Hon. Joiin D. Toomer, a
distinguished citizen of this State. Learned, in
corruptible, a high-toned gentleman, a profound
jurist, an eloquent speaker, and a ready writer, in his
death a public loss has been sustained. He was a"
man of great amiability and goodness of heart, and
the buoyancy of his fancy was well set off by the
charm of his conversation. With a mind well stored
with rich intellectual gifts and acquirements, and
an urbanity of disposition which charmed all who
came within his influence, Judge Toomer was a fine
representative of the old Cape Fear gentleman,
" without fear and without reproach" liberal, gen
erous, biaye and courteous.
Judge Toomer was a native of this town, and gra
duated with distinction at Chapel Hill. Elected a
Judge of the Superior Courts of Law and Equity in
1818, he resigned his office the year following. Many
years subsequent, he was appointed by the Gover
nor and Council, a Judge of the Supreme Court,
but the Legislature not confirming this appointment,
In 1831-2, he represented Cumberland county
in the Senate. -
In 1836, he was again elected a Judge of the Su
perior Court, and, after holding the office four years,
resigned on account of ill health.
For a number of years past he resided at Pittsbo
ro', where he died.
It is for an abler pen, and for one more intimate
with the details of his long aud useful life, to do
justice to his memory. We but announce the-fact
that a distinguished son of the Cape Fear is no more.
Judge Toomer was 72 years of age.
Pennsylvania will do her Dun-. Before the
election in Maine was held an intelligent citizen of
Philadelphia wrote as follows to the editor of the
Portland Argus :
" We expect to lose Maine. I doubt if you ap
preciate sufficiently there the one terrible truth that
the election of Fremont is, per se, Vie dissolution of
the Union. It would not merely endanger the Union
and leave it doubtful, but this question is now as
distinctly before the people as if union or disunion
was upon their ballots. In order to elect Fremont,
he must receive 149 northern electoral votes. In that
event the outlawry of the southern States proclaim
ed by the sectional convention at Philadelphia will
have been confirmed by the northern people, and a
political geographical division will have been ac
complished. The rest would speedily follow. But,
thanks to the steady character of the people of this
good old State, they are destined, as I firmly believe,
to ward off the danger. Fremont is comparatively
so weak that no attempt has yet been made to form
a black-republican electoral ticket here. The Ameri
cans have formed a Fillmore ticket, and the black
republicans are endeavoring to make an arrange
uient with them ; but the attempt I venture to say, ,
will prove vain. But whether they (unite or whether
they divide, the result will be tho same. Along the
frontier counties of the State, bordering on Mary
land and Virginia, which would probably be the
i order counties in case of disunion, very great
changes have taken place in our favor."

A Washington -correspondent of the New York
Daily News writes :
"All our accounts from Pennsylvania, Illinois,
and Indiana are roost cheering could not be better
and if we do not cany all those States by sweep
ing majorities, our friends are most grossly deceived."
Another Washington correspondent of the same
paper writes :
" We have advices from Illinois which settlo the
question in our favor. One of our friends I saw
here to-day, who says he will bet on Illinois giving
a larger proportionate majority ior the democratic
ticket than any State in the Union. The Fremon
ters are badly frightened ; as an evidence of this, we
hear that a letter was read at Woodstock, Vermont,
from Thaddens, Stevens, of Pennsylvania, in which
he sorrows over the certain defeat of the fusionists
in that State."
The ball is rolling on !
One hundred and seventeen members of the Meth
odist Church in Pittsburg, who were in favor of
Fremont, have come out and repudiated him, and
denounced the black-republican party, on the ground
that the leaders of the party are aiding and abetting
the violence and civil war which now unhappily ex
ist in Kansas
At a Fremont meeting in Columbiana county,
Ohio, a few evenings since, the speaker declared
himself in favor of the dissolution of the Union, or
something equivalent- the! eto. After the close of
the speech, the chairman and eleven others arose
and stated that they could no longer train with the
" republican" paptv : henceforward thev should fight
under the democratic banner.
Save Seed Corn Carefully. In remarking upon
the failure of the Corn to come up last Spring, we
gave as a principal reason that much of the Corn
was put up last Fall in an imperfectly dried condi-"
tion. This "fact should be remembered now. Not
only should extra care be taken to have all Corn de
signed for planting next Spring thoroughly ripened
and dried, but the best ears should be selected.
Those ripening first are quite likely to produce the
earliest ripening crop when planted again.
The largest ears should be taken, and these from
the most prolific stalks. Those which are perfect,
having the kernels well filled out at both ends,
should in all cases be chosen.
These matters are quite too often overlooked.
We .have known many farmers who have expended
five to ten dollars or more per acre in preparing and
planting a piece of' ground, from which they have
gathered scarcely half a crop, simply for want of a
shilling's worth of time in selecting and preparing
the best seed, and this, in a greater or less degree,
is too much the case genera lly. It is like that other
piece of bad economy practiced by multitudes, who
send their children to the district school a year, at
an expense of thirty to fifty dollars for clothing,
teachers, &c, and yet lose half the benefit to be de
rived simply because they withhold one extra shil
ling for a suitable book.
We urge every farmer to go over his cornfields
himself, as soon as the crop is ripened, and gather
out the kind of ears wc have indicated, and then
either husk and store them away in a dry room, or
go back to the old-fashioned plan of stripping dewn
the husks, braiding them together so that tr; seed
ears may be hung up in the attic or sother safe, dry
A Conspiracy. No one can doubt who has
watched the course of the Black Republicans, that
there is a deep-laid scheme for electing Fremont by
keeping up the troubles in Kansas. At length facts
have confirmed suspicions, and as "murder will
out," so has this last design of the abolitionists been
confessed in a manner they did not anticipate. The
Detroit Free Press relates that a Mr. Phillips, the
correspondent of the New York Tribune, came into
that office, supposing it to be a Republican paper.
The editor says :
" Without dispelling his illusion, wo asked.him
"if it was probable such a row could be got in Kan
sas as would subserve the Republican cause and aid
the election of Fremont?" lie said, Yes, that is
the intention, and I think we shall succeed ; our
plans arc well laid and can scarcely fail ; we are de
termined that the war shall last until November, at
wh ttever cost ; I shall be in Kansas, and I have
instructions in my pocket for Col. Lane." We asked
him some other questions, which he onsviered with
singular frankness, disclosing a conspiracy of the
Black Republican leaders regarding Kansas more
heinous and villainous, we verily believe, that any
conspiracy ever before hatched. When we informed
him that he had entered the wrong pew that he
was in the office of a Democratic and not of a Black
Republican paper that he had been addressing a
Buchanan and not a Fremont man he was struck
dumb with amezemcnt, from which he did not in
stantly recover. When he did recover, he muttered
something inaudibly, and incontinently fled."
