Report of Select Committee.
The report of Gov. Graham from the select com
mittee to enquire whether the offices of Adjutant
General, Attorney General 4c, have been vacated
by their incumbents accepting offices of profit and
trust under the Confederate government, is admira
bly drawn up and presents clearly, in a nutshell,
tho true constitutional and legal view upon the sub.
ject, which .must be taken by all unprejudiced
minds. The report will no doubt be sustained by
the General Assembly and the people of tho State.
We regret that our own space forbids our laying it

Manufacturers' Convention.
We publish to-day the proceedings of the Conven
tion of Manufacturers held in Greensborough on the"
3d instant A large majority of the manufacturers
were in attendance, and it will be seen that they
have agreed to make such reductions in their prices
as will be satisfactory to the public And now that
the manufacturers of woolen and cotton goods have
agreed to take what, under the circumstances, may
be regarded as reasonable prices, is it not the duty
of the farmers " to meet them half way, and also re
duce, as far as' they can the prices of meat and
bread? We think it is, and we feel sure that this
action of the manufacturers will be appreciated and
reciprocated by the farmers.
This action of the manufacturers is due, in a great
degree, to Gov. Yance, and to the "prompt co-operation
with him of Dr. Thomas D. Hogg and the Fay
ettcvijie factor " It is one of the most useful, if
not the most useful act of the Governor's public life,'
The people of the State, our brave soldiers and their
families, and especially tho women, will thank him
for it It will benefit all our people, and thus
strengthen the Southern cause. - "
We entertain proper respect for Gov. Morehead,
and we .would say nothing that would be-calculated
to dp him or others injustice in. the slightest re
spect ; but we cannot help expressing our regret
that he left Greensborough, and failed to attend the
Convention of manufacturers referred to. Surely,
if the other manufacturers of the State are satisfied
with scventy.five per cent profit, he might be satis-,
lied with it also. Governor Morehead may have
some particular reason for his course on thjs occa
sion; but without explanation on hU part, it does
seem to us that he is disposed

We understand that at a meeting of tho Patterson

Several weeks since Gen. French, who commands
in the military department of Petersburg and North
Carolina, Issued an order to burn all the cotton east
of the Wilmington and Weldon and Seaboard and
Roanoke Railway ; but he was induced, by a letter
from Got. Vance, to postpone the execution of the
order until the 15th of this month. A.fricnd called
our attention to the first order,and another friend
has called our attention to the second, which is as

Special Order) .Extract. - .. ......
No. 255. J ---
1. Brig. Gen. B. H. Robertson, will -extend the
day designated for .the removal of jDotton, to the
15th day of December, with th distinct vnder
ttanding, that in the event of the approach of the
enemy, the owners will see that the cotton is burn--ed.
All cotton must be removed west of the line
of railway by the 15th of December, 1862, other
wise, it will be destroyed, r ;
Cotton unpicked in the field, will be allowed, a
reasonable time to be gathered and packed, but in
no event will more than one-fifth of the same be
permitted to remain upon any one place after it is
ready for transportation west of the line of railway.
By command of Maj. Gem. S. G. French.
. GRAHAM DAVES,
. . ' Uajor and A. A. General.
Now, it is physically impossible for the planters
to remove their cotton witbjn the time designated.
They have been deprived by the war of many of
their teams and wagons, and many of them are en
gaged in removing their negroes and other property
to the interior. Certainly, it is better to destroy
the cotton than permit the enemy to get possession
of it ; but is it likely that the enemy will occupy
the whole country, including every neighborhood,
east of the line of railway, before the 15th of this I
month? . f
Why does not the government purchase the cot-
ton, and remove it to a safe place in the interior ?
We believe it is purchasing cotton in the States
south of us why not in this .State? Cotton will
be specio at the close of the war, and even now it
would form an excellent basis for the millions of
Treasury notes whuh the government is issuing.
Devastation, instead of protection, appears to be
the policy. If we cannot protect you, we will burn
your property and ruin you, seems to be the molto.
We are tired of this policy. It cuts us like a two
edged sword, for the Yankees destroy on one side,
and our own government on the other. Gen. Whi
ting intimates, for example, that he will destroy
Wilmington rather than let it fall into the hands of
the enemy. Wherefore ? Shall we cut off the nose
to spite the face ? Being miserable already, shall
we make ourselves more so ? Away with the pat
riotism that consists in destroying rather than in
protecting! .
Gen. French, who commands in the military de
partment of Petersburg and North-Carolina, will
have a grand cotton burning on the 15th of this
month ! We protest against it Our people and
planters protest against it If the enemy ap
proacbea, says one portion of the order, the planters
must see to it that the cotton is destroyed. This
is all very welL No doubt the planters tcill se to
it in that event; but the order goes on to say, that
all cotton not removed tcett of the line of railway
by the 15th, will be destroyed. The order is, there
fore, contradictory.
But it reveals the fixed purpose of the govern
ment at Richmond to make the line of railway the
line of defence against the Yanktet ; and this policy,
it is apparent, will deliver the entire East to devas
tation and ruin. It is, in fact an invitation to the
Yankees to advance to the railway ; for the cotton
is to be removed west of it, and,' of course, we are
to fight them, and fight them only at that point
The Personal Liberty of the Citizen.
A few days since Mr.. Alford, of Wake, intro
duced in the Commons a resolution inquiring by
what authority the soldiers of the Confederate gov
ernment were arresting citizens on the streets of
Raleigh as conscripts, and requesting information
on the subject. The resolution passed, and the
Governor's answer was sent in and read to the
House. We did not hear it read, but understand it
stated to the House that ho bad given' no such au
thority to Confederate officers or soldiers. Subse
quently Mr. Fowle, of Wake, introduced a resolu
tion" on the subject, forbidding such arrests, tc
This resolution elicited a warm discussion, in which
Messrs. Fowle, Grissqm, McAden, Amis, Waddell,
Person, Shepherd, and others took part The res
olution finally passed, slightly modified, and was
sent to the Senate, in which Hody, after some dis
cussion, it was referred to a committee. -
The whole matter was placed ' upon the' true
ground, as we learn, by Messrs. Fowle, Grissom,
McAden, Amis, Alford, and others in the Commons,
and by Messrs. Warren, Rusk, Graham, and Taylor
of Chatham, in the Senate.
We are surprised that any public body, having
in its keeping the personal' liberty of the citizen,
should hesitate for a moment on, the subject It is
well known that Got. Vance, through the militia
officers, is enforcing the conscription law ; and that,
therefore, there can be no good reason for the inter
position of Confederate officers. But Gen. Martin,
in the plenitude of his power, has had his squads
of arm e a men going through our streets and into
our houses for several days past, arresting citizens,
whether residing here or not, on the mere atsum
lion that they may be deserters or conscripts ; and
his orders on the subject even go so far as to hold a
citizen liable to arrest for wearing a certain kind of
clothing! A day or two since a member of the
House, Mr. Headen, was arrested by a squad as a con
script; and one of our merchants, who is exempt,
has told us that he has been a-rested four or five
times, in and in front of his store, and required to
show his " pass." We learn, too, that the soldiers
detailed for this duty are intnany instances rudev
and insulting, frequently pointing, when asked for
their authority, to their bayonets.
We trust the Legislature will take prompt action
on the subject, and protect our peoplcagainst theso
armed bands, not only here, but throughout the
State. Personal liberty is. above all price. Our
PEOPLE WILL KOT SUBMIT TO SUCH TTRANNT ON THE
fart or Gen. Martin. It is not only galling to.
our people, but it is a reflection . on Got. Vance,
who is himself enforcing tho law.
We may refer more' at length to this matter in
our next; and we should have called attention to
it in our last but for the fact that Mr. Alford's in
quiry of the Governor on the subject was pending
in the House. . '
The Wilmington Journal, copies all our article
about Judge-Shepherd, and offers a lamo reply to it
The object is apparent The Judge is in training
for a race for Congress in the Cape Fear District,
and it is important to quote the Standard against
bim, so as to strengthen him with certain preju
diced or ignorant "precipitators" or Destructives
in that District This is a singular .way of elec
tioneering. But the Judge' bmke faith .with his
constituents in voting "for Mr. Davis for Senator.
There is no doubt about that. If the1 people of
Cumberland and Harnett bad been generally in
formed that he would vote; if elected, for Mr. Davis
for Senator and against Mr. Graham, he would hot
have received five hundred votes.
" Trooja for Mr De&ica. y - t
Got. Vance three weeks ago in his message, urged
the' immediate raising of 10,000 troops for the de
' fence of bur Eastern Counties. The proposition has
been endorsed throughout the State by our" people, j
and nothing remains bnt for the Legislature to pass
the bhV .We regret to say, that too much, delay
and indecision have been manifested ip this impor
tant movement In conjunction with the press of
the State we' have urged prompt action, but as yet
.nothing has been done. ' Fears of a conflict with
thejawa of Congress and the Confederate authorities
have doubtless had some weight in causing this
' delay We advocate no unconstitutional measure,
nor are we . disposed to favor any scheme which
ought legitimately to produce such conflicts. ' Far
fromit'v . - . . .
' The question is reduced to the simplest proposi
tion. Eastern .North-Carolina should be and must
be defended at all hazards. The stake is too great,
both to the General Government and to North-Carolina,"
to allow it to be overran by the enemy. The
Confederate government is in duty bound, to do its
utmost to defeod'it . " If, however, it is in circum
stances that it cannot, or will not provide, fully for
Its defence, shall the Legislature of North-Carolina
stand by and see it overrun, without raising a finger
to prevent it ? The people throughout the State,
answer No I
Upon the 'Conservatives of the General Assembly
rest the responsibility of all the action of its
present session. If they stand by and allow the
just wishes of the people to be thwarted and defeat
ed by their opponents, in any measure, upon their
. beads will rest the blame. They have a sufficient
majority to carry any measure the people demand.
. The bill proposed by the committee on military
-affairs for' the raising of 6,000 troops, if passed, will
wholly defeat the object of the Goverpor an dthe
'people ofcthe State. If we need one man, we need
10,000. . The troops for State defence should be
. raised upon the volunteer principle entirely, or by
. draft The people do not want a conscription upon
conscription, as the bill from the military -committee
provides, nor will they submit to it
We are glad to see that Mr. Cowles of Yadkin,
protests against the bill, and that Capt Grissom of
Granville, has given notice of his intention to bring
in a minority report Let such a bill be at once
drawn up as will fully meet the suggestions of
Got. Vance and the wishes of- the people, and let it
be passed at once. Thousands stand ready, to Tol
unteer for the defence of the State. .
Prayers for Peace;
We have received a communication from a lady
friend on the subject of prayers for peace on the 1st
instant We have no doubt that the supplications
of thousands of earnest and stricken hearts ascended
on that day, to the Ruler of men and "nations, for
this great blessing. Our lady correspondent con
. eludes as follows :
"-War and pestilence have already laid waste the
land; and if the third 'scourge,, famine, should be
sent upon us, wo be unto us I Will not some one
volunteer to be a mediator between the two coftnd
ing parties ? In so doing he would gain everlasting
honors- The'blessings of the world would be upon
him. His path would be strewn with flowers. The
rich and the poor, the high and the low, would rise
up and call him blessed Yea, 4 blessed are the
peace-makers.' "
Commendable Ljberalltr.
A friend in Caldwell County writes us that at the
Superior Court of that County, recently held, a ma
jority of the Magistrates being present, an appropri
ation was mado for indigent families of soldiers;
and that Gen. Samuel F. Pattersdh, in behalf of the
Patterson Cotton Factory and Tannery, contributed
to the soldier's families 100 bunches of 6pqn cotton,
and the General himself agreed to furnish 100 bush
els of meal at the very reduced price of 75- cents
per bushel. We are also assured that the Tannery
with which Gen. Patterson is connected, has never
sold sole leather at a higher rate than $1 per pound,
other leather in proportion, and that many wo
men and children in the County are indebted to this
Tannery for shoes.
We record such examples as theso with much
pleasure. They are "good deeds in a naughty
world," which shine out in all directions, encouraging
others to go and do likewise. If every person in
'the State who bas the means to be benevolent would
use them as Gen. Patterson is using his, much suf
fering among the poor would .be averted, and the
cause of independence would be greatly strength
ened. Onr Sick Soldiers.
We hope the bill of Capt Grissom, of Granville,
as amended by the Military Committee, for the re
lief of our sick and wounded, soldiers, will be passed
at once. Our brave men need all the sympathy and
protection against suffering yrhich the State can fur
nish, and their condition admits of no delay.
Correspondence of the Standard.
Petersburg Va., Dec. 4, 1862.
Mb. Editor: An occasional letter from this point,
from one who is-.watching passing events with in
terest, may, perhaps, fill a corner ot your paper
with profit Of this, however, you must judgu
I need scarcely say that there has been n time
since the opening of the war, when more excite
ment prevailed in this city than for the last few
days. A conviction 'has settled upon all minds, that
we are soon to have stirring times below us, and all
around us. It has been pretty clearly, ascertained
that the programme of the enemy is to attack Rich
. mond from three or four points simultaneously.
The grand army will move on Fredericksburg, or
along the Rappahannock, while another column will
try the old Peninsula route ; a third will try the
route from Suffolk to Petersburg, and at the same
time the forces on the coast of North-Carolina will
march on Weldon, or some point between Weldon
and Wilmington. This general move will bo sec
onded by the gunboats, which may come up the
James River towards this city, and op. the Cape
Fear towards Wilmington. This may seem too
large a scheme for a man with no more brains than.
Hallcck, but this is the information which has
reached us from beyond the lines. I cannot for a
moment believe that any better success will attend
eur enemies in their "on to Richmond" now than
heretofore, and mark my prediction an overthrow
of the grand army is not far distant, shouldn effort
to carry out the programme as laid down above, be
attempted. . " .
Persons who have recently visited Gen. Lee's
army, say they never saw the men in better spirits,
and more determined to fight to the last In this
section our men are all in good spirits, and 'should
the advance from Suffolk be attempted, many of our
foes will sleep in death before they reach Petersburg.
I have recently heard of outrages committed by
the enemy all along the coast of Virginia and North
Carolina, that has made cold chills run over my
frame. And I freely confess that such feelings have
never possessed my bosom as have recently, as I
have heard of the outrages of the enemy frorq one
point and another.
This city is full to overflowing. It is difficult to
'fc.id a single vacant house, and still persons are
pouring in from below every day. Tho. prices of
provisions rule very high, and extortioners may
be met at every corner. I will give the prices of
leading articles : Flour $26 per barrel ; corn meal
$2 80 per bushel; bacon 65 to 70 cents;' Lard 60
cents ; corn $11 per barrel ; fodder $5 per hundred ;
chickens $1 each ; turkeys $3 ; eggs $1 per dozen,
&c Wood is selling for $12 per cord. What the
poor are to do this winter, God only knows. -
The well known hotel on Bollingbrook street will
be closed to-morrow, and will be sold publicly next
week. CoL Carrington goes to Richmond.
Gen.. A. R. Wright, the noble Georgian, who was
wounded at Sharps burg, was in the city to-day, on
his way to his command. Will write again soon.
