Gen. Duckery says lo carry out the policy now inaugurated will cost $10,000,000, and how docs he propose to 'raise this enormous uinoum : by insisting upon the dis tribution of ihe public lands or the proceeds there of. This is the great issue in the present canvass for Governor, as it was hist summer in I his Dis trict when Messrs. Craigo and Osborne were can vassing for Congress ; and we confidently expect it to stand by the decision then made. The land question has been a favorite hobby with the Whigs since Mr. Clay originated his great American system a system more fraught with consolidation and centralization, than any ever submitted to (he American people, and when ever they have had an opportunity have invariably voted it down. It is a question, in the hands of a demagogue, that artfully managed, appeals di rectly to lhe pockets an impression is hoped to be made upon those who do not give themselves the trouble to investigate it in order to see how it ultimately adversely effects their interests. The people are told that the federal government owns a vast unoccupied domain, that the States are en titled to a distributive share, and that the new Stales, by a species of unjust and unequal legis lation, are absorbing the whole of it ; that il North Carolina could get her share of these lands she could apply it lo the promotion ol education and internal improvements, thereby improving our condition without an increase of taxation. This sounds very pretty, and is wel! calculated to de ceive the unwary. These lands have been ac quired by two methods first, by deeds of cession from some old States, North Carolina included, and second, by purchase or conquest. The deed of cession made by North Carolina reads thus : "The lands shall be considered as a common i fund for the use and benefit of the United States of America, North Carolina inclusive, according to their respective and usual proportion in the general charge and expenditures, and shall be laithfully disposad of for that purpose, and for no other use whatsoever." Now, can these lands be distributed without acting in bad failh lo the State who made the ces sion ? At the time this munificent gift was made by North Carolina, the country had just emerged from the war ol the Revolution, hampered with debt, and without credit. In order lo enable it to pay r ff the debt of the old confederation which it had assumed, Norlh Carolina and the other old States made this cession. It was to extinguish this debt, and to form the basis of future credit, that it was made, and to be as it now is, a fund for the common use and benefit of the United States, according to their respective and several proportions in the general charge and expenditure and to be faithfully and bona fide disposed of for that purpose and none other whatsoever. The Territory acquired by the common blood and treasure of all the States stand upon the same footing. This Territory has cost the Government $300,000,000, this money was raised by indirect taxation, and the sales cf the lands should be ap plied to the extinguishment of this debt first and the proceeds then go into the Treasury to support the government in order that the duties may be lessened. If the proceeds of this lands are di vested from the Treasury of course the deficit must be made up by an increase of the tariff, thus working a double injury to the South for she paid two-thirds of the money with which they were purchased, and will get less than a third of them if divided. There is no difference between the distribution of the binds or the money with which they were bought and if Congress has the right to do the one, certainly it can increase the tariff, and if it produces more than is required for the administration of the Government, divide the sur plus among the States. That is the doctrine of the high protective tariff men all over the Coun try, and how would that affect the South ? Why, we would pa' in the federal coders three dollars and receive one in return, minus the expense of ! collection and disbursement. This land question I is a humbtur revived to take the. ueonle. who are I O II'"' awake now to the cause of common schools and internal improvemen'. Let the present tariff be reduced and apply the money arising from lhe sale of the lands to its le gitimate use, and thus relieve ihe countrv of the burden il has long borne for the benefit of North- i r em capitalists and manufacturers If the lands were divided as proposed bv Gen r. i 1 ii i I Dockery, that part we would get would Hot be pfl much value to us. ft would be located probably j on the de-files of the Rocky Mountains, or, n the Terriiorv of New Me, or Wkr,.k. ... ! lhe haunts of civilization, and would not command ' u. .a..y yea. a .ti .... acre. ii me L,egis- , tutors are to be responsible to the federal goverq ment, and not to itheir immediate constituency, for tne appropriations of money,- Where vvi!

FRANKLIN PIERCE. By the President : W. L. Marcv, Secretary of State, ojm m m Since our last issue we have had the plea, sure of conversing with intelligent gentlemen from various of the surrounding counties, all of whom are in fine spirits, and they say that from present indications, Mr. Bragg will poll a heavier vote than Gov. Reid did two years ago while Bock ery will not near reach Kerr's. We met a lead ing man from Union yesterday who to.d us that the democracy there were never more united and enthusiastic and that there would Le a very full turn out. Dockery is known there the course he pursued in the canvass for Congress when Hon, G, W, Caldwell was his opponent the ul tra measures and consolidation doctrines advoca ted then his demagoguism and overbearing man- ner will effectually tell against him in that county. We regret to learn that it is doubtful whether Mr. Bragg can visit this region during the canvass. With all due deference to the Whig press, we must say that the course Dockery pursues in ma king appointments without consulting his demo cratic competitor, to say the least, is as ungener ous as it is unusual. The practice for the candi dates to arrange their meetings to suit each others convenience has obtained in the State, and has the sanction of courtesy, justice, and good feeling. We have no idea that the General will come in this d:rection. He acts upon lhe principle the least some matters are stirred the better. Mr. Bragg's friends will do the best for him they can, and it is our honest conviction that he will gel lhe lar gest vote in the Pee Dee country ever given to any democrat while Dockery will fall much be low his party strength. Mr. B. is right in following the old war horse, exposing his shallow tricks and demolishing his flimsy arguments. CUT The Hon. D. M. Barringer, ex-Minister to Spain, arrived in town on Tuesday evening last and took rooms at Sadler's Hotel, where he will remain a few days. Rattling. Jerry, " the Barber," ever mindful of the com fort of the " gents about town," has fixed a room where the luxury of the hot or cold, pool or shower bath, may be indulged in. His "saloon" is in the rear of the printing-office, where every attention is paid to those who wish to avail them selves of the " homtepaihic treatment." The vigorosity " thus imparted to lhe frame by laving in the crystal stream that bursts distilled from God's own alembic, has been praised by Nymph and Naiad doctors and empyrics, since the world began. " Cold water " is now supposed by some to be a sovereign remedy to all tbo ills " lhat flesh is heir to." We are sceptical, but recommend every ono to try it particularly externally. Vanity of Life.

The news from the war quarter is highly inter esting. All parlies were at last pushing forward with a degree of activity that indicates a determin ation to bring the war to a speedy close, if Possi ble. The details of some of the recent sanguinary operations are truly thrilling Commercial affairs remained in much the same gloomy state as previously reported. Cotton was heavy, but there had been no particular change in price, while Flour and Corn had both greatly declined. All was quiet in France and England. Some sensation, however, had been produced in the lat ter country by the announcment ol the Chancellor of the British Exchequer that he " could not pledge himself there would be no increase in the public UCUS There are no tidings of the missing steamer City of Glusgow. The Cunard steamer Africa had arrived out. AFFAIRS IN SPAIN. The Black Warrior affair had not been fully set tled. The Court has issued a decree for a forced loan. The greatest financial embarrassment exists. THE WAR. The Hange forts on the Baltic had been bom barded and destroyed by the fleet under Napier. The Russians are reported to have suffered a hea vy loss, but the English only lost three killed. Kaffa had also been bombardeel and captured. Odessa and Sebastopol were still closely blocka ded. After a severe struggle lhe Turks have at last got possession of Sillistra. The Russian were re pulsed from the place with great loss. The Greeks recently drove one huudred and fifty Turkish soldiers into a church, closed the doors upon them, set fire to the building and burn ed them. King Otho, it was understood, would accept the ultimatum of England and France, and the Greek insurrection was consequently considered less for midable. Nevertheless, it is said that two war vessels were lately presented to Greece by the Czar. The most hitter feelings of hostility are repre sented to exist at St. Petersburg against Austria, and it is rumored that one hundred and fifty thou sand Russian soldiers were on the march to Buk ovina, one of the Austrian provinces on the Rus sian borders. The Russians in Turkey recently made a com pulsory enrollment of some thirty thousand Arme nians, and at last accounts were threatening to at tack Erzroum, the chief city of the Province. Owing to lhe war Russia's commerce was great ly suffering, and many commercial failures were anticipated. The Russians were evacuating and destroying their forts along the Caucassus range and the Cir cassians were following them up in their retreat, and harrassing them on all sides. Some desper ate fighting had taken plaee between them. The Circassians had been driven back no less than four times. They suffered great loss on each occasion. Austria and Prussia are reported to have united in a new treaty or protocol which provices for ac tual war against Russia. It is now pretty gener ally admitted that these countries are in earnest in their opposition to the Czar. Austrian vessels are hereafler to be searched for contraband articles of war. State and Esrospects ofluc European Yar. We have seen a letter from a Parisian gentle man famous for his prominent connection wiih man) of the most stupendous continental financial operations of the day, and whose judgement, hy-the-by, in such matters is admitted to be hardly second to that of any other man in Europe, who writes that the current war is very likely to be ol very long duration its termination depending al most wholly on the fiat of Nicholas, who cannot get out of it as matters now stand without fighting it through without flinching. He writes further, that England is beginning to be pestered to know how to levy her taxes to raise the money she needs for her share of the contest; and that though the war is popular with her people, they are already manifesting, each class and interest, a strong de sire that the duty of paying the piper shall be shif ted from its own shoulders on that of others. He thinks that lhe continuance of the emigration ex odus and the present high rates of wages, backed by the contingencies of the war, will operate very severely against the English manufacturing and commercial interests; while the fact that the ports of the BaPic and Black Seas must be kept in a state of blockade for at least another season, will keep up the existing extraordinary demand upon the agricultural producing capacities of the United States. According to his information, very little of the recent enormous drain of specie from this side remains in England, where money continues exceedingly scarce, the Bank of England having raised the ratio of interest to five per centum. He, Frenchman like, hugs himself over the fact lhat while the English banks are lamentably de ficient in coin, the nerver-failing demand forsilke, and satins, and bonnets, for the ladies, has caused a recent increase in lhe vaults of the French banks of twenty millions ol dollars 'n gold! He winds up with a prophesy, that if we have no war in Dip next five or ten years to come, the increase of the United States in all the true elements of greatness and prosperity will be well nigh equal to the most wonderful stories related in Eastern tales; being firmly ol (he opinion that, alter all, this country, and only this country, is to profit by the existing state of things in Europe. Wasiii?igton Star. Small Fry. Why does not President Pierce resign? we sometimes mentally ejaculate, on read ing some of the furious onslaughis of the small fry newspapers. We are really afraid that if some of the paragraphs should meet his eye, he would forthwith disband his cabinet, and retire to pri vate life. They are so truthful ; so magnanimous ; the wit is so cutting, the satire so scorching; they are marked with such able pens, and exhibit such sacred views. Poor President ! What shall he do ? Whether shall he turn? On every side he beholds his enemies swarming like a cloud of Locusts.
