From this gentleman's columns of the New York 1 Evening Star, we have a right to look for the regular, deliberate, givings-out of the great New Light Federal "Whi- party in the United States. Noah is decidedly Sir cratic head quarters of the whole monied aristocracy, what he says upon their projects may be considered as coming from fountain head. They all swear by this modern "King of the Jews," all their editors follow his lead, in all political motions of importance. He not only is their grand mouth piece in gene ral concerns pertaining to their political trickery, but even in the especial small affairs of the motley junto, such as a district election for Congress, he speaks as "one having au thority, as we shewed last week, in his impu dent interference with the affairs of this 7th Congressional District of ours. Living in f what is called the empire State, this scribe of the Northern Blue Light federalists, takes it for granted, that the Chief City of that State is not only the head of that empire, but the head, politically, as well as commercially, of this em pire Union of ours. And not only so; but the words spoken by the "chief scribe" at that place, must be passed with the authority of law, throughout the nation, at any rate among the people called Whigs. We dare say, how- ever, the matter of this dream of Noah's will I not so readily find a current in the little rills of I federalism in this State. These small fish in the Whig editorial corps, have to feel their way as they go, and proceed more gingerly So the dream we have published, will hardly be noticed with approbation, until the little bodies, see Vw it will take. i. We call upon those of both narties. in seri- . . r , Sf Allu DnhaKtiaD U. C I i vuij ij unserve iroru wnm quar ters, the lead in federal politics is always giv en. Mr. Clay offers a project of a fifty mil lion Bank, on the floor of Congress last win ter to b? located at .Veto Yor k. Mr. Biddle resigns and goes to England, where his son is a large merchant; soon alter, we see in the New York papers, a grand project for a" British Bank with entirely British capital, to be located at New York, for the purpose of regulating exchange with England, and also dealing in the State stocks, (the State debts, we mean, of 170 million,) for internal im- v rnvpinftn T i : : 1 r.-.v.uvuW, at seems 10 ue imagined uuwever, mat mis plan ot a branch of the Bank of England located in our country is rather too impudent an attempt to sell our commerce and exchange into a bondage more than Egyptian. The thing would not go down; especially as it could not be brought to the aid " ii touia not be made the Jfatumtd Bank. The grand regulator. oo, Mr. Biddle and the God-like, have only to give Noah a hint, and the great Rabbi dreams a dream. We ask pardon, he first writes a letter or two, as the "scribe" of the party, and then comes the dream. In short, this organ of Henry Clay, the Southern man with JSorlhern principles, gives boldly out, that the Federal Whigs must not think of dropping their chief prop, their only support in politics. Mr. Clay's letter to a friend in Mississippi, must be retracted, (how ever inconsistent it may appear.) The Jd eral Whig party must regulate the currency with a 50 million Bank in New York. Does any one desire greater proof that the opposition party are essentially and insepara bly connected with the bank interest, the mo ney poicer, the aristocratic mercantile commer cial monopoly system in the country? Ever since Mr. Biddle has engaged the Pennsylva nia bank in the mercantile and commercial speculations of the country, thereby divert ing the merchants honest gains into the vaults of that overshadowing corporation, and forc ing commerce into unusual and unnatural channels, to the undoubted injury of all con cerned in it; there seems to be an itching in the political bank party, to involve this country in the ruinous policy of national banking. In fact it is distinctly announced, in the dream we speak of, that when the Whigs get the reins, England is to be our example; her debt of S00 millions of pounds sterling, is in so many words held up as the example we aie to follow. Our heretofore Republican fashion of keeping the nation out of debt, is to be dropped and laughed at; this suggestion of Yankee good sense, put actually in practice by our late president, is made a jest of in the famous dream. Let no man be deceived by the false ap pearances held out, of the Whigs dropping the project of a mammoth National Bank. It will as certainly be their first exercise of ill gotten power, as that the people are blind enough to trust it in their hands. Look to it Democrats, and act at the polls so as to preserve your liberties. It seems Mr. Deberry is not so open and public in his avowal of attachment to "his first choice," Henry Clay, as he was in this place. However, we have no doubt when Mr. Deberry sees that the people demand it of him, he will be consistent, and go the figure for Mr. Clay. He is thoroughly committed on this subject as every body knows, who heard his speech in thi3 place. Jackson "White" men will not be high tariff Clay men. Mr. Deberry will find the truth of this in August. Wonder if the Anson Whigs pay Noah auy thing for abusing their worthy neighbor, Mr. Morris? We have no doubt these attacks of Whig editors on Mr. Morris' attitude as a clergyman, presuming to ask his friends to vote for him, will do him good at the election. - fr-Mr. Culpeper in the letter of his, pub lished in the Observer, is kind enough to let the district know how the Congressional elec tion in Anson is to go. Wonder who asked this "Federalist" leader for his advice? Those old Jackson men in Anson, who were cheated into a vote for Judge White two years ago, are not for that reason, to be count ed in the tariff ranks of Henry Clay. This is an electioneering trick of Culpeper's; the people of the district, will not take the hint and vote the Clay candidate into Congress. We see that another Whig paper, the Peters burg Intelligencer, as well as the Observer, denominates the Democratic party "Tor ies!!" This is very well gentlemen; no doubt "all the decency" editors in our State, will soon fall into this respectful treatment of those who differ from them. This goes upon the saga cious presumption that North Carolina De mocrats have np pride. It will produce its effects at the election in August. Every De mocrat that stays at home, and under any cir cumstances fails to vote in the Congressional election, will prove that he deserves the odiou: name given him, by the Observer and Intelli gencer. Prepareforthepollsthen, Republicans, carry with you erei-y friend you can influence, and prove by sending a Democratic delega tion to Congress, that these Whig editors slander you. 0OI am a Federalist. In these days of political dodgiug, it is refreshing to meet among our political opponents, with some few, who are honest enough to avow themsel ve3 to be Federalists. This occurred very recently, when we heard a gentleman of high honor and respectability of that party, con demn in the most unqualified terms, the as sumption of the name of Whigs by those who oppose the Administration, expressing at the same time, his conviction that as a party they were federalists in principle, and that it would be more honorable for them to sail un der their true political ensign. Another Hand at the Bellows. A new paper entitled the North Carolina Democrat, is published at Halifax, by Mr. C F. Cloud. We greet the editor by these presents, with a hearty shake of the hand. We like the title of his paper, and the first number is creditable to him. "Hang out your banner" upon the outer, wall ' friend Cloud, cry aloud and spare not. The field before you is a spacious one, your cause is the cause of truth and the rights of man Honest perseverance cannot fail of success. "A Farmer's Son" is informed, that the Whig meeting at Rockingham, did adopt resolution in tavor ot Mr. Clay. We were not informed of the fact until too late to with draw his article, and. set up another in the place of it. We asked in our last, two questions on the subject of the Fayetteville and "Western Rail Road, and as we have not been answered, we again advert to the subject, in the hope that those who have the management of this im portant work, will so far gratify the public as to say, when books of subscription will be opened, or whether the plan is abandoned. We wait for a reply. Several communications necessarily defer red until next week. -Im- Mr. Stevenson and Hord Palmerston. portant to the South. It is reported in the papers, (and we be lieve on good authority) that our Minister to England, has succeeded in an arrange ment with the British Government, by which the value of the slaves, shipwrecked some eight or ten years ago, upon the Bahama Is lands, are to be paid to the claimants. This is not only important to the claimants, in the reparation of their losses but also to the country at large, inasmuch as it estab lishes the great and important principle, in which the interest and the prosperity of the Southern States are involved. This arrange ment secures to the claimants nearly $500 a piece, for every slave of whatever description, which is more than was ever heretofore al lowed on any occasion by the British Gov ernment. Mr. Gallatin succeeded in getting only about $200, for the slaves that were ta ken by the ships of that Government during the late war. It will be recollected that our Minister, Mr. Stevenson, has been censured in some parts of the country, for being too slow in hi3 negociation of the above matter; but when it is recollected, how difficult it is to obtain a hearing before a foreign court, when that court is disposed to prolong it, and that it required something like twenty years ip make a negociation with France, upon somewhat similar matter. Our only surprize is, thai; Mr. Stevenson should be able to effect the object above mentioned, so speedily, and on terms so favorable to the individuals concerned. vessels were from Scotland, the other two Dutch. No lives were . lost. - - The Medical Committee of Charleston, S. C. have reported a few cases of yellow fever in that city, on the 20th June. The vessels in which the patients were brought, upon ex amination, were found to be healthy, and there seems to be no apprehension of a prevalence of the disease.- It is highly creditable to the Mayor of the city and all others concerned, that information is speedily given to the pubT He of the introduction of diseases. Otherwise rumM would mmBniCy h diseases, and operate J to uie injury oi naneston, as wen as to in dividuals wishing to visit that city. CANADA. It will be seen from the papers that arrests are still made upon individuals suspected to have been engaged in the revolution of that country. No doubt when so much vigilance is used by a Government, innocence will sometimes share the punishment due to guilt. Richmond Manufacturing Company. We learn from a friend, that this Company composed of the Messrs. Leaks, Steel and others, have erected a spacious brick building, 1 feet long, 44 feet wide, and four stories high, in the town of Rockingham; a consider able part of the machinery has been put up, and is now in successful operation. The en terprising proprietors have our hearty wishes for their success. Noah's Dream commented on in this pa per, is enough for this week, of the further proof we promised of the Abuses of the Cred it System, and the expediency of Mr. Ben ton's Hard Money System. The whigs wish to "unbank all our State Banks" by a new great mammoth and grand regulator. Does N. Carolina need auy such regulator? What will the directors of our ably and prudently conducted Banks say to Noah's project? Do they desire a Lord paramount in money con cerns put over their heads? Cannot our State regulate its currency without help from abroad? Cannot did we say? Does she not? Who desires a currency better regulated than ours at this moment? What is to prevent other Stales from doing the same thing? All that is required is, "let us alone." We have only to ensure the continuance of the present state of things in our State finances; and who doubts that a proper diffusion of the precious metals (in the right proportion) into our cur rency will infalliably and permanently accom plish that grand desideratum? But oh no! The reckless partizan heat of of the opposition leaders, will not permit this to be done. If thi ngs be permitted to take this natural, legitimate, easy step towards the cor rection of abuses, the whig party will have nothing to grumble about Mr. Clay must not hope to be President. Does not every body see that unconnected with this paramount Bank machinery of partizan warfare, the op position party is a non entity? All their former outcries, and panic mak ings, without this, must count for nothing. Ihe people would see the delusions into which they have been led, and spurn the im postors, whose dupes they had been. Seven Large Vessels lost in the Ice.

Five of the FROM THE GLOBE OF JUNE 21. THE PRESIDENT. The President left this city yesterday on a visit to his home the first he has made since his elevaton to his present station. His route will be through the richest agricultural region of Pennsylvania. He has never, we believe, seen that section of the State which the indus try, intelligence, and sober habits of the race from which he sprung, have enriched with the most skilful cultivation and the best speci mens of road and canal improvement, Old Republican Berks', that tenth legion of Penn sylvania, which never gave a Federal vote, we believe in the State or National councils, will havo peculiar interest for the President a kindred people in principle, in origin, and endeared by the strong personal regard mani fested for him. It will be admitted that the President must have chosen this route rather to indulge the grateful feelings of his heart among old friends than to make new ones. The letter called out by the New York com mittee, conveys a desire on tho part of the President to avoid all ostentation.- When in control of the city councils, the Federalists lavished immense sums in parade, paying honors to prominent personages. It is wrong to apply the public means to such purposes, although justified by usage. Ve rejoice to see it discountenanced on an occasion when every thing conspired to induce the Demo cratic authorities to pursue and confirm the example the first visit of the first Chief Ma gistrate given by the State to the Union. FROM THE N. Y. EVE. POST. Mr. Van Burcn's letter, which we publish to-day, shows a disposition to avoid all pub lic parade on the occasion of his approaching visit to this city. In expressing our pleasure at this we take occasion to suggest to the Common Council, the propriety of consider ing whether any appropriations made by their body for entertainment or display, with a view ot doing honor to public men, are not improp er, and whether these things should not be left to voluntary contributions. It having been understood that the Presi dent of the United States intended to visit his native State this summer, our General Com mittee have been making arrangements for his reception. In answer to a communica tion in behalf of that committee, the following letter has been received from him: Washington, June 14, 1839. " Dear Sir: 1 have received your letter, in which, on behalf of the Democratic General Committee, you ask to be informed of the pro bable period of my arrival at New York, with a view to a public expression of regard for myself and approbation of. my olhcial con duct. Intending to travel by private conveyance, I cannot with certainty name the day on wnicn x snail reacn mere, out i nope io u so by the first of July. The interchange of per sonal civilities with my fellow citizens In the course of my journey will afford me the most lively gratification; and the only sentiment in regard to it that I desire to express, is the hope, that it may be attended with the least formality that is consistent with entire respect to the wishes of my friends. As your letter leads me to believe that the committee design to invite me to a public din ner, and as I have been apprised that similar kindness is contemplated in other places, I trust I shall be pardoned if I express, in ad vance of more formal offers, the obligation I shall feel myself under, to decline such com pliments. I am not insensible of the apparent indeli cacy of thus anticipating the intentions of my friends; but I feel that in so doing I may safely throw myself upon their indulgence. I need not assure them that I can never be unmind ful of any manifestation of their regard and confidence. Do me the favor to make these sentiments known to the committee, and to accept for jourself my thanks for the obliging manner in which you have conveyed their request I am, sir, very respectfully, Your friend and obedient servant, M. VAN BUREN. these, again, at least one-half are minors; so that we have little more than two and a half millions of men to boast of, protecting the rest There is another delusion: The States above distinguished by asterisks, are generally con sidered as slave-holding states, and the rest as non-slaveholding States; whereas, there are but two states, Vermont and Massachusetts, in which there are not slaves, more or less. In Delaware, there are 3,202; in New Jer sey, there are 2,254; and in Pennsylvania there are 403. There is a still greater delu sion: This population of all sorts, in each of the States, is the basis of their congressional representation in the popular branch of the na tional legislature, deducting only two-fifths of the slaves in the slave-holding states, and nothing for their great population of free ne groes, who, in this basis, count one for one with the whites; whereby those states have a much greater representation, in proportion to their white population than the free states. Under this view, it is obvious that the abo lition of slavery would immediately give the present slave-holding States, an increase of their congressional representation, of sixteen members, acording to their slave population of the last census, and this preponderance would increase hereafter,' instead of being diminished, for which mere would be no rem edy, except by an amendment of the constitu tion, m regard1 to the basis of representation, luKiil. .. 1. - H .s. ll 1 1 1 c Tiitwii u uucuy nMj-iuiitauic j.iutc, lor illustration of the above, the two States, Ohio and Virginia, Ohio, (having no slaves, and but few free negroes,) has a1 population of y28jS29 whites, which, on the established ratio of 47,700 for each congressional district, gives her nineteen representatives, based oh her white population alone. Virginia, on the other hand, has, of white population, but 694,300, which on the same ratio of 47,500 to each representative, would entitle her to fourteen representatives only; but by virtue ot a free negro population of 47,348, she is en titled , to one more: and, by virtue of three fifths of her slave population of 469,767, she is entitled to 6 more; making her compliment of twenty-one representatives, elected too, (under the more restricted right of suffrage in Virginia,) by less than one-half the number of voters that ; elect the smaller number of nineteen representatives in Ohio.

CANAL ACROSS THE ISTHMUS OF PANAMA. . The Republic of New Grenada has granted to a company the privilege of making a canal, railroad, or macadamised road, over this isth mus. In 1836 this privilege was accorded to Col. Charles Biddle. The conditions of the privilege not having been fulfilled, it has been granted to a company associated wh iKo kouM of Salomon and Co. of Guade loupe. - The agent of this company is now in Europe, with .the view of raising the means, and making the preparations for this enter prise. The conditions of the contract are concisely these: 1. The intermarine communication must terminate at one end, in the town of Panama. It may be a canal, a railroad, or macadamised road. , 2. If a canal be made, the duties of trans portation to accrue the Government shall be one per cent 3. The navigation of the river Chagres, in canoes, shall not be interrupted. 4. Vessels under the New Grenadian flag ahall pay ten per cent, less toll than these of other nations; that is, ten per cent, off the toll. 5. This privilege shall continue fifty years, from the completion of the work, for which six years are allowed. 6. The company shall begin their operations in three years from the date of the contract. Failing to company with this condition, they shall pay $25,000 penalty to the State. 7. At the end of the term of this privilege, (fifty years,) the canal shall become the pro perty of the Republic. It may salely be predicted that the funds for making this canal, under the present con tract, will never be raised. Contrary to the usual inducements to embark in such enter prises, that of an increasing value in the stock; in the present case, the stock must di minish in value every day, since it must be come the property of the State at the end of fifty years.
