Extract from a letter to the Editor, dated
Winston, Forsyth, Oct 12, 1860.
'We had a discussion here on Tuesday afternoon
between Messrs. Leach, Settle and Judge Person.
Ihe latter gentleman knocked the two former com
pletely off their pins. His speech was calm, clear
nd convincing, and has produced a marked effect
upon the people of this vicinity. One of his strong
est points was made upon the fact that Judge Doug
!?8 when at Raleigh, instructed his friends not to
.use with, grant to, or accept terms from the Breck
inridge men. The proposition to fuse was present
ed to Judge Douglas by a prominent member of the
Convention, and declined. Judge Person made the
statement on the authority of that gentleman, but
reiused to give the name publiclv. Mr. Settle was
completely dumbfounded at this expose, especially
his argument had been built upon the assunip
,!0n that the Breckinridge men would not fuse with
Our neighbor of the Register does as injus
tice in his notice of our remarks before the Breckin
ridge and Lane Club in this City on Wednesday
evening last He says: " ;" "
In the course of his remarks, Mr. Holden assert
ed that a sovereign State had a perfect right to se
cede from the National Union, and said that irt the
event of the election of Lincoln, should South-Carolina
secede and Lincoln attempt to coerce her to re
main in the Union, the middle States (meaning, we
rtnnii Tennessee. 1
r l . . . . . , . ,
would send double the nnmber of men to her aid
that Lincoln might send against her, and should
forces be tent through thi State to attempt to co
erce her to remain in the Union, he would join an
army, musket in hand, to best back those forces,
and to prevent their passage through this State.
What a charge has come over the editor of the
Standard since he penned those admirable Union
articles but two or three months ago 1"
Now, we stated distinctly, at the same time giv
ing our reasons, that we did not think the election
of Lincoln would be good cause for dissolving the
Union. We added, however, without expressing
any opinion as to the right of a State to secede, that
some State or States south of us might secede; that
while we would oppose secession, we knew of no
federal road through North-Carolina over which
Lincoln could send troops for the purpose of subju
gating sovereign Southern States; that Lincoln
might blockade ports, and send troops by sea to
ravage Charleston, or Mobile, or other Southern
cities; but that though we believed the middle
States, North-Carolina included, would not secede,
yet volunteers would go from those States to the aid
of their Southern brethren thus assailed ; and that
for every thousand men Lincoln might send for his
work of subjugation the middle States would send
two thousand, as volunteers, to aid their Southern
brethren and to arrest Lincoln in his work of blood.
''If thit be treason, make the most of it" We are
no disunionist, neighbor. No change has come over
us since we penned those Union articles
but two or three months ago." But we are for a
Constitutional Union, not a Union of force and
blood. If any State should nullify the laws, at the
same time remaining in the Union, the laict must be
enforced; but if Southern States should secede in
the last resort, acting under the solemn conviction
that such a course is the only one by which they
can protect their vital interests and honor, no at
tempt should be made to coerce or subjugate them,
but a Convention of all the States should be called,
and all efforts should be directed to the great work
of re-uniting the broken parts on a solid foundation
of justice both to the North and South. We hold
as Mr. Badger held in 1850, that this is not a Union
of force. In the course of his remarks on the Com
promise measures in March, 1850, Mr. Badger said:
" Force, Mr. President, cannot keep the States of
this Union together cannot preserve the constitu
tional Union. I distinctly admit what was said by
the honorable Senator from Massachusetts, Mr.
Webster, that no State has a right to secede from
this Union. I distinctly admit that the Constitu
tion, looking to perpetuity, makes no provision, di
rectly or indirectly, for the separation of its parts.
But in point of fact, from the very nature of our in
stitutions, the States cannot be kept in union by
force. The majority, or the most powerful portion,
may conquer and reduce to subjection the other;
but when this is done, the States are not in union
the constitutional connection is not restored. It is
but the spectacle of a conquered people, submitting
to a superior power; and no ties of affection, no co
operation in a common government, no American
union, can reasonably be hoped between the con
querors and conquered. Believe me, sir, if ever the
unhappy hour should arrive when American blood
is shed in a contest between the States some desir
ing to secede, and the others endeavoring to compel
them by force of arms to remain in the Union
whenever that hour comes, our connection is im
mediately broken to all beneficial purposes for the
happiness or prosperity of the conntryr"
And in another part of the same speech Mr. Bad
ger said : " And unless our minds are united, the
forced association of reluctant communities, who stay
together, not to obtain good from their connection,
but to avoid the evils of separation, does not deserve
the name of Union," We agree with Mr. Badger.
We hold, with him, that force cannot keep these
States together, and that a "forced association of
reluctant communities, who stay together, not to ob
tain good from their connection, but to avoid the evils
of separation, does not deserve the name of Union."
What do you say to that, neighbor t It is hardly
possible that Mr. Badger has changed on this sub
ject since 1850. Do you agree with him? or do
you hold, with Abraham Lincoln and others of the
ultra federal school, that a Constitutional Union
can be preserved by force T
The State Fair.
The State Fair opened yesterday (Tues lay) with
every prospect of success.
At four o'clock on Monday evening the entries of
articles on exhibition were equal in number to those
of former years, while blooded animals, and large
quantities of carriages, buggies, machinery ploughs,
and specimens for Farmer's, Mechanic's, Pomologi
cal, and Floral Halls were being carried in. Mr.
Westbrooks is in attendance with large quantities of
his delicious fruit, while in Mechanic's Hall Mr.
Shultz makes a fine exhibition of cabinet work. But
we have no time to go into particulars. The ladies,
without whom we would have no fair at all, were
busily engaged on Monday evening in arranging the
articles brought in and in decorating Floral Hall
' The weather during the Fair promises to be fair
and pleasant The late rain has settled the dust,
and the track for horses is now in excellent condi

next meeting of the State Educational Association
will be held in the city of Wilmington on Tuesday,
the 13th of November. Let us see to it, friends,
that the Convention is fully attended. The people
of Wilmington have appointed the following gentle

The Result of the late Elections, and the Pros-
- 1 pecta in the Futnre. ;'. -
. Pennsylvania, Ohio, and . Indiana have gone by
large majorities against the national cause. Black
Republicanism appears to have gained in all these
States. Judge Douglas has recently been stumping
in Ohio and Indiana, and in his speeches he claimed
both these States as Democratic. The result shows
that he was mistaken. ' Ohio he claimed with great
confidence, but Ohio has fallen still deeper into the
mire of sectionalism. Indiana has been a Democrat
ic State, Her majorities for the Democracy have
heretofore ranged from eight to fifteen thousand ;
and Pennsylvania, it is well known, rolled back the
tide of sectionalism in 1856, and saved the country.
Some of our Northern exchanges state that the
fusion between the conservatives in Pennsylvania
was by no means complete. They say it was hardly
possible, in the first place, to unite the foreign ele
ment in the Democratic vote with the Bell Ameri
cans ; and that, in the second place, the antagonism
between the Breckinridge and Douglas men, though
to some extent repressed, was nevertheless more or
less intense, as it is in all the States, thus rendering
a cordial union even between the Democrats them
selves impracticable. In addition to this Forney's
Press, while professing to support Douglas really
played into the hands of the black Republicans ; and
to this influence, thus wielded by one of the most
unprincipled politicians in the country, wo may at
tribute the loss of thousands of votes to the fusion
ticket in Pennsylvania.
But what of November? How will these States
vote in the Presidential election f The black Re
publican journals are exultant over recent results,
and confidently claim all three of them for Lincoln.
The New York Herald, though it still indulges hopes
that New York may save the country, nevci thcless
despairs so far as aid from Ohio, Indiana, and Penn
sylvania are concerned. New Jersey will go with
Pennsylvania, and all the northwestern States, Illin
ois included, will most probably go with Indiana
and Ohio for Lincoln. Therefore, if New York
should vote for Lincoln, Lincoln will be elected.
This seems certain. All eyes are, therefore, turned
to New York. The conservatives in that State have
the strength to defeat Lincoln, but it remains to be
seen whether they can so unite their forces as to ac
complish this result We confess' we have our fears
as to the vote of New York. Outside New York
City New York State is decidedly more black Re
publican than Pennsylvania or Indiana. Seward
claims the State by sixty thousand majority.
We confess that the chances are in favor of Lin
coln. The prospect now is that he will be elected
by the people. Things may take a different turn
before the election, but we fear there is little ground
for hope that they will. However, we will continue
to look at the bright side of the picture as long as
we can. The country has been in perils heretofore,
and for one we will " never despair of the Republic"
Gen. Jo Lane.
Gen. Lane made a speech at Indianapolis on the
20th ult, in the course of which he said :
"I am for all the rights of all the States, and I
will do all in my power to preserve those rights. I
have battled, and always will battle, against any in
terference on the part of Congress with the subject
of slavery. It is a subject with which Congress
has nothing to do. Leave the Territories open to
the Southern man as well as the Northern man ; let
each take his property with him, and enjoy it while
the Territorial condition remains. This is equal
and exact justice. The men of the South fought as
hard and as bravely to acquire the territory, or fur
nished as much treasure to purchase it, as those of
the North. How, then, can you discriminate how
keep our Southern brother out of his inheritance ?
Let us, then, my friends, contend for these constitu
tional privileges and constitutional rights.
A voice " What if old Abe should be elected f
Well, I say that if he should be elected, we will
keep right on battling for the principles of the na
tional Democratic party. Should he be elected by
his sectional party, and on his sectional platform,
we must content ourselves with the thought that
four years will quickly pass, and at the expiration
of that time the people will rise in their might and
place a man in the Presidential chair who will stand
by and to the principles of the Constitution, as now
expounded by the Supreme Court, and held by the
Breckinridge party. Loud Lheers.J
On another occasion Gen. Lane was asked what
he would do if any of the Southern States should
secede on account of Lincoln's election. His reply
was " I will never draw my tword against a people
fighting for their Constitutional rights."

gF" Bear in mind, Democrats, that Mr. Douglas
stands no chance to get the first Electoral vote in
the slaveholding States ; that the contest in these
' States is between Breckinridge and Bell ; that every
vote for Douglas is, therefore, indirectly a vote for
Bell ; that if the fusion ticket in New York should
prevail, and Mr. Breckinridge should receive a major
ity of the Southern Electoral vote, he will have the
best claim on the vote of New York ; and that, on
the other hand, if Mr. Bell should receive a majori
ty of the Southern Electoral vote, he will have a
claim on the vote of New York, and may be elected,
thus defeating both Douglas and Breckinridge.
Extract from a letter to the Editor, dated
Arkansas, Oct 3, 18G0.
"The indications in Kansas are in favcr of Breck
inridge. Bell, however, will get a considerable vote,
and Douglas has some strength. Without indica
ting how I stand, I give it as my opinion that Breck

To the Members of the O. C. G., and
To the Ladies of Raleigh:
Comrades: I hardly know who is to blame for
my not turning out with you on the day of the pre
sentation of the banner. I had been waiting impa
tiently for that glorious hour from the time I heard
the banner would be presented by the ladies of Ra
leigh to our corps, so that 1 might take part in the
celebration ; but at l.sst I missed it by not being no
tified. It is true that our Captain told me on Mon
day that " Friday is the day," but at the same time
he said that the company would have a meeting
that night and the presentation of the banner might
be postponed to another time. My request was to
let me know when they would turn out but that
was the last and I never heard of it till Friday eve
ning, after the banner was presented. But, howev
er, let it go so I shall sec it before long.
Now, to you, Ladies : By some misunderstanding,
I had no chance to see your gift; but it seems to
me the time is approaching when we will be found to
gether under your banner, and then I will look on,
and stand by, that precious gift As an old veteran
and a true adopted son of North-Carolina ; as one
who, in his earlv age, stood in front of the murder
ous fire, he pledges his honor to you, daughters of
the brave, that he will stand once more, in bis ad
vancing age, in defence of you and Southern rights.
No, no ! don't you think that you will ever lose
your banner which you have entrusted to our hands.
We will defend it until every soldier of the O. C. G's
is cut down under it on the field of battle, and the
last drop of the old veteran's blood sinks into the
ground, rather than let our enemies have it
For the Standard.
Let all true friends of the gallant Douglas vote
for Breckinridge. It is thus they can best promote
the election of the great Illinoisan, and fight at the
same time, in the sacred cause of Democracy. Here
is the proof.
No man but Lincoln stands any chance of a pop
ular election. Should ho receive a majority of the
electoral votes, then there is an end of the matter.
But suppose he should not receive this majority.
Then he will undoubtedly go to the House; and
only the two next highest of the other three candi
dates can go there with him. Who will be those
two who shall they be 1 Breckinridge will certain
ly be one of them. No man who is well acquainted
with the political feelings of the country who reads
the newspapers of all parties, and is able to discern
truth lrom falsehood, can doubt that he will carry
Texas, Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi,
Arkansas, Georgia and South-Carolina, and at least
half of the other Southern States. The contest as
to the third man will be between Douglas and BelL
The true friends of Douglas should so vote as to de
crease as much as possible the number of Southern
electors for Bell. Should they give the electoral
vote of North-Carolina to Breckinridge, they will
but swell the vote of a rival who is sure to go to the
House, either with or without said vote, and conse
quently would do Douglas no harm. But if by di
vision among ourselves we give Bell this vote, we
thereby set him ten ahead of Douglas in the race
for the House. -
Let the Douglas men ponder over these facts, and
temper their zeal for their gallant chieftain with dis
cretion. If he gets to the Honse he will be Presi
dent He is the only man upon whom all of the
conservative forces there can centre.

Cure of Ague and Fever.
THERE IS NO DISEASE TO WHICH THE HUMAN
body is liable so universal, so dreaded, or so general
ly fatal, as Fever: it appears in different countries and
climates, under different types and characters. In this
country, where its annual return is looked for with anxiety
and apprehension, it usually assumes the billious type.
Another species of fever prevalent here, and which, it
mav be said, never leaves or subsides altogether, is tbe Au
tumnal Intermittent, or ' Ague and Fever which, if not
so fatal, yet is very distressing. Its characters, effects, and
consequences, are peculiar: to a diminished energy of the
nervous system are to be ascribed tbe languor, lassitude,
and general prostration which characterizes its invasion :
to which might be added tbe derangement of tbe mixed
functions of the liver, stomach, and intestinal canal It is,
therefore, quite manifest in fuel, it ia well known, that
ague and fever lay the basis of consumption of tbe lungs,
chronic affection of the liver and spleen, dyspepsia, and
not nnfreqnently dropsy; and when once this state of the
viscera becomes established, there is a constant tendency
to relapse, even from slight causes, and when thns compli
cated with tbose constitutional diseases their treatment
and cure becomes more difficult.
Common sense teaches, that the cure of Ague and Fever,
consists in shortening the duration ot tbe paroxysm and
preventing its return. Tbe first is to be accomplished by
depleting tbe Dowels, relaxing the skin, Ac; tne second,
by the prompt application of such medicines as are calcu
lated to restore the deranged functions and give healthy
tone to tbe nervous system. ... .
The Tonic Mixture now offered possesses all the qualities
requisite to effect tbe second indication. Tbe first dose
generally checks the disease, and one bottle never fails to
effect a cure; a bealthy reaction takes place, the appetite ia
restored, tbe system becomes invigorated, and tbe pa
tient begins to feel surprised at tbe rapid tiansition from
a state of morbid suffering to that of progressive recovery.
These effects have beeo experienced by all wbo have used
it, which could be shown by numerous testimonials. -' -
