BEACH, Editor of the People's Journal, Patent Agent, See., No. S6 Nassau street, New York. Nov. 23?? PROSPECTUS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA STATESMAN. THE undersigned propose, on the first day of January next, at Kaleigh, North Carolina, to begin the publication of the North Carolina States man, a semi-weekly and weekly paper, devoted to politics, news, and miscellaneous subjects, and respectfully solicit for it a share of the patronage of the democratic party, their friends, and the public. Invited by many leading persons of the state rights republican party to propagate and defend principles which we have always held, and regard as the only basis of prosperity in our form of gov ernment, and inspired with a sincere desire to serve that party and advance its interests, we pro pose to issue a paper at the seat ol the State gov ernment. In the field of editorial enterprise, there is ample room for those who are now holding po sition, as well as for others, who choose to euter into fair competition. The propagation of the principles of our party is a duty at once import ant, and to us peculiarly agreeable. The attrac tions of the editorial profession and its honorable toils, together with a desire to extend its influence, has had much weight in the dec.isiorf which we have made?a protessiori at once dignified and elevated, where the highest intellectual gifts may find full employment, and the purest patriotism make contribution to the public weal. We are persuaded that a journal, conducted with fairness and discretion?uninfluenced by selfishness and devoted to principle, may secure sufficient patron age, without interfering with the claims or rights of any now prosecuting the same great work. Although mainly devoted to the discussion of such political questions, as tliey arise, which affect the welfare of North Carolina, whether relating to the federal or State governments, or such local in terests as may be of importance, it is nevertheless intended to make the Statesman a medium of ge neral intelligence. Accordingly, the state of the markets in the principal cities, to which eur com merce goes, shall be fully and accurately reported; norwill the attention of the condactors be less ad dressed to the subject of internal improvements, as a means indispensable tto the development of j the mineral and agricultural resources of the State. These interests, of primary importance, shall al ways command their fullest attention. To this they propose to add carefully selected and original literary matter. Being strictly conservative, they propose to avail themselves of all the lights of ex perience, in that progress, which promises the ad vancement of the interests of North Carolina. The general objects of the proposed paper being thus clearly indicated., it may not be amiss briefly to state the particular views which are to be sus tained by it as a political journal. 1st. Our purpose beingto publish a paperpurely de mocratic, according to the straightest requirement of that party, we shall advocate strict party organi zation in its fullest and most comprehensive sense; an organization which originates in the popular will, expressed by the people in their primary as semblies, and which has been so successfully in troduced among the democracy of many of the ether States, b'y which the rank and file of the party are, in fact, those who indicate its decisions, and, being all brought into action, express their will imperatively; thus, by open and fair dealing, commanding respect and obedience; an organiza tion of the people, and not of intriguers; restoring power to those who, by sufferance, have tolerated its temporary usurpation. 2d. The democratic party shall always find in us advocates of their right to select their standard bearers, and to command acquiescence in decisions made by conventions fairly elected in their primary meetings. Standing upon the good <?ld State rights platform of'98, we shall oppose government corporations created by Congress for the purpose ol internal improvement, the regulation of finance, or any other measure inconsistent with the rights of the States. 3d. Believing that the platform adopted by the late Baltimore convention contains the democratic creed, they expect cordially to sustain the present administration, trusting that the policy adopted by those who compose it will be regulated by the cardinal doctrines of the American democracy. 4th. They will ndvocateall such measures of in ternal improvement as promise by judicious prose cution to promote the interests of the people and diffuse the benefits of a.system already enjoyed by portions of the State. 5th. The disposition of the public lands beiag a question of the most absorbing interest, we be lieve it should be nt once met and settled. The unjust and unequal legislation of Congress, in re lation to those lands, and the large and frequent appropriations made to the new States, indicate a final departure from the old and wise policy of ap propriating the proceeds of their sales to the pay ment of the public, debt, and the expenses of the government. It has for some time ceased to l>e either a subject of hope or expectation that there will ever 1>? a return to n policy which had so much to recommend it. Believing that this sys tem of squandering and prodigality is not only to continue but to grow worse, we shall protest against it, and assert the right ef the old States to their equitable share of the lands which remain. The power "to dispose of the public lands Ming explicitly declared in the Constitution, the exer cise of that power is a question of policy, both as to the time and the mode." Believing, as we do, that it has become the settled policy of Congress to squander the public lands, we adopt the patri otic language of Mr. Dobbin, and say that "all of North Carolina's sons, both whigs and demo crats, should protest, and demand North Caro lina's share of the public domain." 0th. Approving of the sentiments of the inaugu ral of the President, we shall oppose the acquisi tion of Cuba or any other foreign territory, unless such acquisition be in accordance with existing treaties, and entirely consistent with the national honor.

(ui) Banking House PINIONS OF ATTORNEYS GEMER al of the United States.?The undersigned having just published an octavo edition of the official decisions of the Attorneys General of the United States, expounding the Constitution, sub sisting Treaties with foreign nations, and the In dian tribes, and giving construction to the public laws of the country, in livo volumes, averaging 750 pages each, comprising all the decisions of | that character made since the adoption of the 1 federal constitution, and prior to the 4th day ot July, 1851, and to be continued up to the present time, with synoptical notes and copious indices, he respectfully announces his readiness to answer orders for the work, and to forward the same by express, or otherwise, to any part of the United States. Being the productions of distinguished jurists and civilians, fully authorized to decide the vari ous questions of civil, common, international, I constitutional, commercial, and municipal law, ' which have arisen in the course of the adminis tration of the government, and bearing, as they do, upon nearly every subject of civil polity and jurisdiction, it necessarily follows that they are scarcely inferior in importance to the Constitution which they defend, and the laws which they ex plain. They not only set forth the political econo my and fundamental principles of the federal gov ernment, and the rules and regulations enforced in its administration, but they also define the powers and duties, and, in many instances, the compensation of its civil and military Officers The subjects of national sovereignty, neutrality. I extradition, &c., are therein thoroughly discussed, ' and our revenue laws, land laws, patent laws pension laws, &c., commented upon and ex plained. It is, therefore, believed that public ministers, consuls, governors of States, district attorneys, marshals, collectors of customs, sur veyors of ports, naval officers, receivers of public moneys, registers of land offices, Indian agents, officers of the army and navy, and, indeed, all public men will find these volumes a valuable ac quisition to their libraries. The editions put up in the style of Howard's Reports of Decisions of the Supreme Court, and sold at the moderate price of thre? dollars per volume. Librarians of States and public institutions are reminded that they may conveniently obtain the work, through their representatives in Congresp, if the latter arc immediately addressed upon the subject.

INVIGORATING CORDIAL, A Phenomenon in Medicine.?Health He stored and Life Lengthened, by Dr. Morse's Invigorating Elixir or Cordial. AT first the properties attributed to Professor .Morse's Invigorating Elixir or Cordial were deemed fabulous. Tie public often deceived could not believe the simple aud sublime truths an nounced by the discoverer. But facts, undeniable facts, attested by witnesses of the highest class and character, are now triumphing over all doubts. Incredulity is overthrown by a mass of testimony which is perfectly irresistible. The Elixir remedies in all cases the deplorable evils arising from a misuse of the various organs which mate up the wonderful machine called man. It restores to full vigor every delicate func tion connected with that mysterious compound agency of matter and mind, necessary to the re production of human life. To persons of feeble muscular frame, or deficient in vital power, it is recommended as the only menus of communicat ing tliut energy which is necessary to the proper enjoyment of all the natural appetites, as well as the higher mental attributes, its beneficial effects are not confined to either sex or to any age. The feeble girl, the ailing wife, the listless, enervated youth, the over worn man of business, the victim ot nervous depression, the individual suffering from general debility, or from the weakness of h single organ, will all find immediate and perma nent relief from the use of (bis incomparable reno vator. To those who have a predisposition to paralysis, it will prove a complete and unfailing safeguard against that terrible malady. There are many, perhaps, who have so trifled with their constitutions, that they think themselves beyond the reach of medicine. Let not even these de spair. The Elixir deals with disease as it exists, without reference to causes, and will not only re move the disorder itself, but REBUILD THE BROKEN CONSTITUTION The derangements of the system, leading to nervous diseases, and the forms of nervous dis ease itself, are so numerous that it would require a column to enumerate the maladies for which this preparation is a specific. A few, however, may be enumerated, viz: neuralgia tic-doloureux, headache, incipient paralysis, hysteria, palpitation of the heart, spinal affections, muscular debility, tremors, flatulence, a pricking sensation in the flesh, numbness, torpidity of the liver, mental de pression, weakness of the will, indisposition to move, faintness after exercise, broken sleep, and terrifying dreams, inability to remain in one place or position, weaking of the procreative organs, sexual incompetency, melancholy, monomania, fluor albus, sinking at the stomach, female irre gularities, a chronic tendency to miscarriage, emaciation, and all complaints growing out of n free indulgence of the passions, and all barrenness that does not proceed from organic causes beyond the reach of medicine. Whenever the organs to be acted upon arc free from malformation or strictural diseases, it is averred that MORSE'S INVIGORATING ELIXIR ? l r?paue w?aknes? with strength, incapacity with efficiency, irregularity with uniform and nat ural activity, and this not only without hazard of reaction, but wifh a happy effect on the general organization. Bear in mind that all maladies, wherever they begin, finish with the nervous sys tem, and that the paralyzation of the nerves of motion and sensation is physical death. Bear in r^o, that, for every kind of nervous disease the hlixir Cordial is the only reliable preparation CURE OF NERVOUS DISEASES. No language can convey an adequate idea ot the immediate and almost miraculous change which it occasions in the diseased, debilitated, and shattered nervous system, whether broken down by excess, weak by nature, or impaired by sick ness, the unstrung and relaxed organization is nt once braced, revivitied. and built up. The mental and physical symptoms of nervous disease vanish together under its influence. Nor is the effect temporary; on the contrary, the relief is perma nent, for the cordial properties of the medicine reach the constitution itself, and restore it to its normal condition. Well may the preparation be called the MEDICINAL WONDER Of the nineteenth century. It is, as the first sci entific man in the world would have admitted, that miracle of medicine Heretofore supposed to have no existence. A STIMULANT THAT ENTAILS NO RE ACTION. Its force is never expanded, as is the case with opium, alcoholic preparations, and all other exci tants. The effect of these is brief, and it may well be mtul ofhim who taken ilicm: " the lu?t stale uftliat man is worse than the first." But the Elixir is an exhilarant without a single drawback?safe in its operation, perpetual in its happy influence upon the nerves, the mind, and the entire organization; it will also remove depressions, excitement, a tendency to blush, sleeplessness, dislike of societv incapacity for study or business. LOSS OF MEMORY, Confusion, giddiness, rush of blood to the head, melancholy, mental debility, hysteria, wretched ness, thoughts of self-destruction, fear of insanity hypochondriasis, dyspepsia, general prostration' irritability, nervousness, inability to sleep, diseases incident to females, decay of the propagating func tions, hysteria, monomania, vague terrors, palpi tation of the heart, impotency, constipation, &e., Jce., from whatever cause arising it is, if there is JbLEl3;?nwuJte.,,l,0W' CAUTION. Dr. Morse's Invigorating Cordial has been coun terfeited by some unprincipled persons. In future all the genuine Cordial will have the proprietors fac-siinile pasted over the cork of each bottle, and the following words blown in the glass: "Dr. Morse's Invigorating Cordial, '?C. H.

In cases of Impotency, Hoemorrhages, Disordered Sterility, Menstruation, or Suppression of the Menses, Fluor Albus or Whites, or for Debility arising from any cause, such as weakness from sickness, where the patient has been confined to bed for some time, for females after confinement, abortion or miscarriage, this cordial cannot be excelled in its salutary eflects or in loss of muscular energy, irritability, physical prostration, seminal weakness, palpitation the heart, indigestion, sluggishness, decay ol the pro creative functions, nervousness, &c., where a tonic medicine is required, it will be found equal if not superior to any compound ever used.
