Negotiating the Twelve Million
Loan. A statement went the rounds ot the
newspapers, saying that Mr" Ewing's son re
ceived a very large sum for negotiating the
twelve million loan. Secretary Ewing only
remained in office long enough, it seems, to
compass a half million of the loan. On this
his son received $416 66 for negotiating it.
JVegotiating, in this case, means simply re
ceiving the money on the terms proposed in
the law. This was Mr Ewing's. duty but,
by using his son's name as negotiator, Mr
Ewing got a per centage which, on the whole
twelve million, would have amounted to ten
thousand dollars. This was a beginning of
feathering the nest. If the Bank and its
loans had gone. into operation, the political
negotiators would have fobbed at least a" mil
lion. Negotiating and applying the Treasury
notes to the purpose of the Government, cost
much more trouble to Mr Woodbury' than
negotiating a loan would have done; yet we
never heard that Mr Woodbury, or his son,
got a per centage on the job. Globe.

' that shall be expressed by the immediate rep
resentatives of the people anu me cwi,
"with no other control than mat wnicu iu
"dispensablo to avert hasty or unconstitution
"al legislation."
What i-s the meaning of all this? To take
away tho Vtsto power from the President oi
the United States; a right "inestimable to free
men, formidable to tyrants only, 'r except in cer
tain cases, where it is indispensable to "avert
hasty or unconstitutional legislation." My
countrymen, "there are none so blind as those
who will not see." Unfortunately for tir
happy country, the Whigs have majorities in
both branches of our National Legislature.
How did they use power? They abused it.
Look at the proceedings of the extra session,
aud you will find that -your immediate repre
sentatives were gagged, and free discussion
cut off. "What was their course upon the Fis
cal Corporation. Bill? It was hurried through
both Houses with indecent haste. Are you
prepared to say with John Tyler, that it was
unconstitutional? The Democratic portion
of you will reply in the affirmative. But who
are to be the judges as it regards "hasty or un
constitutional legislation?" The Whigs them
selves, of course; they expect to have the
game in their own hands, if so, black will
certainly become while, aud vice versa if it
suits their purposes.
"By the adoption of a single term for the
" incumbent of the Presidential office."
The Whigs have such an exuberance of
the "talent and decency" among them, that it
is necessary- to get one out of the way as soon
as possible'to make rocm for another. The
Constitution of the United States prescribes
no particular time as to the duration of this
office; in 17S8 Gen. Washington was elected
the first President, re-elected in 1792, having
served two terms, or eight years, and declined,
thereby establishing the precedent which has
governed all his successors; Thomas Jeffer
son served from 1S01 to 1809; James Madi
son from 1S09 to 1317; James Monroe from
1817 to 1825; Andrew Jackson from 1S29 to
1S37. Thus we have the examples of those
great and good men, George Washington, the
father and savior of his country -Thomas
Jefferson, the author ( the Declaration of In
dependence, and the apostle of Democracy
James Madison, one of the fathers of ihe Co u-stitution-James
Munroe, a soldier of the
Revolution -and Andrew Jackson, the hero
of Emuckfau, Talladega, and New Orleans.
But modern Whiggery must strike a new track.
Before the views of one President can suffi
ciently develope themselves, he must give way
to another, and thus the country is kept in a
continual slate, of excitement. No one set
tled policy is adopted and adhered to.
"By a separation of the purse from the sword
"-aud with that view to place the appointment
sof the Head of the Treasury in Congress."
- This" is' ah old song, "the purse from the
sword," and it really appears, since the W7higs
have found out that they possess all the talent
for music too, they have set it to a new tune

State Convention.
Out correspondent, "A Pedee Farmer," will
have seen, that a State Democratic Convention has
been recommended by our friends of Franklin coun
ty that Raleigh has been designati d as the place,
and the 10th of January the time, for the members
of the Republican party of North Carolina to meet
and deliberate on the great questions of national
policy which agitate the country, and also to nomi
nate a suitable candidate tor the Executive office.
For ourselves, while we would gladly have seen the
Convention assemble in this place, wc cheerfully ac
quiesce in the wishes of those who prefer Raleigh;
believing it the duty ot all Republicans to merge
minor considerations for the, sake of harmony and
nnity f action. That it i3 essential to hold a Con
vention, fev, we suppose, will deny; if therefore, a
greater number can be assembled at the Seat of Gov
ernment than elsewhere, thereby reflecting moreful

the State, -we forego, our own wishes in favor of
Fayetteville, aad say, let the Democracy of the Old
North S'ata assemble at Raleigh, on the 10,h Jan

language which cannot be misundet stood, their de

-Before the Election and after this Election.
Before tilts eteciionj almost every Wh g banner
bore lhe inscription 'Tippecanoe and Tyler too," it
was the burthen of evefy seng; the rallying cry was
"Tip and Ty.' There was no remissness among
the opposition of that day. The democracy never
accused them of it; if any one 'did, great injustice
was done, for every art, device, and manoeuvre was
resorted to, that ingenuity could invent, to deceive
and mislead the people. Every one that we knew
of that party, were, through the whole tempestuous
period, as indefatigable as human nature will admit,
goingabout seeking whom he might devour ma
king use of flattery, terror, temptation, and allure
ments in every shape in which human wit could
dress it up in public and private. They succeeded
by these means in elect in J their candidates, "Tippe
canoe and Tyler loo."
Providence, in its all wise decrees, snatched their
chief away, and now, since the Vice President has
succeeded to the chair of state, and interposes a pow
er he possesses under the Constitution, and arrests
the progress of a great evil, "there are none so poor
as to do hini reverence." He is denounced by those
who were once his warmest and mostardtOt frlcnds,
as a "traitor," 'perfidious wretch," &c. Tin ir ex

more and more weary of them every day, until now,

Resumption by the BanksKeforui, Reform is
our Watchword 1 !
The Banks, one and nil, suspi nded specie pay
ments in May 1337, which was during Mr VanBu
rcn'a administration. Th. ir excuse to lhe prople
for not resuming, was, that Mr Van Buren's admin
istration was carrj'ing on a constant war against
them, and therefore they cou'd not resume. Well!
Mr Van Buren, under this hoe and cry against him,
was turned out of power on the 3d ol March last,
and the friends of the dear Banks, the Whigs, were
put in his place, and have possessed, for the last 8
months, the whole power of lhe Government both
the Executive and Legislative branches power to
control the whole politics? of the country to make
the Banks respect the laws, and practice common
honesty in their dealings.
Now, how stands the case? Why, so far from
the Whigs carrying on a war against them, they
have actually encouraged and sanctioned 1 lit. ir dis
honest conduct, by extending at the lute extra ses
sion ol Congress, the charters of all the Bank sin the
District of Columbia, whilst these Banks ic ere and
still are in a state of suspension of open rebellion
against the latcs of the country, and Che obligations of
common honesty. Here I hen we have the Banks,
stripped of all excuse; no war against them their
friends in power a time of profound peace the for
eign exchanges in cur favor and still they continue
to live in bold -contempt of public opinion and public
morality. It is a shame! a crying shame!! The
Banking system in this country, as managed by the
pipe-layers, has brought deep disgrace upon our na
tional character. The Federal Whis who have the
control of it, have, for the last ten years, made it en
tirely subservient to paity purposes by loans and
accommodations to members of Congress, patty
leaders, and Editors, and the practice of pipe-lcying,
Or the purchase of votes at the I ctions, and bribing
bullies to prevent Democrats from voting. Besides
the enormous tax levied upon the people b the loss
es on a spurious currency besides the injury to
trade and national character, by the loss of all con
fidence iq our moneyed institutions it is daily un
dermining public honor and morality, prostrating ev
ery high, pure, and noble standard of justice and
honesty; and w ill, if not checked by the public vir
tue eft.ie Democratic patty, end in the mill of our
republican insi itutions, by corrupting the who'e
mass of public sentiment, w hich alone sustains them.
Show us one Federal press that has found fault
with the Banks for all this, and we will show you a
'black swan!!" No! no! Tho Banks patronize them,
and they would not be so unjraleful as to censure
the Banks. They denounce bitter rrnroaches if ihere
lappens to be a default for $50 of a democratic offi
cer, whilst tln-ir columns are silent as t the every
day enormous robberies, perjuries, and villainies corn-
mi ! tt d by Whig officers in Banks.
The people demand and wiil have reform! And
we ask, will the pipe-laying, federal presses in this
State go for it? Never!

The Cause! The Cause!!
The Banks suspended in May, 1837, and held on
to the public money, in depositc with them, which
compelled Mr Van Buren to call the Extra Session
of Sept. 1837; to devise moans to carry on the Gov
ernment without Banks The President recommen
ded at this session, the plan of the Independent or
Sub-Treasury, to separate the Government from the
Banks the latte? to keep its own money, instead of
putting it into lhe Banks to be used and squandered.
1 he ruin brought on the country bj the suspen
sion, enabled the Whigs to raise the panic howl,
that Martin Van Buren's Sub-Treasury was the
cause of all the public distress; this turned the elec

The "sober second thought" of lhe people, turned
the elections back again in 1839, when the Demo

The triumph of the Democrats in the summer and
fall eltctions of 1839, set the Banks again to war
upon Mr Van Buren's administration; and the Bank
of the United States, in October of that ful', again
suspended specie payment, which it had resumed in
the latter part of 183S.
This suspension of the U. S. Bank in 1839 was
followed by that of all the Banks in 1839 and 1840
The consequence of this second grand susDension.
was a sea of bankruptcy, ruin and distress spread
over the whole co-mtry in 1839 and 1840. The
Whigs met every where in conventions, raised the
second grand panic howl, that Mr Van Barren's ad
ministration was the most corrupt and tvrannicalon
earth, and had brought all this ruin on the people
they set up Gen. Harrison as their candidate for Pre

by ihe seventy of the Bank pressure, andcarried

by Whig panic orators, deserted their Democratic
standard and went over to the enemy, and elected
Harrison in 1840.

Smartness. '4
The Raleigh Reiii-ter asks why the Democrat
passed by the " immoital ighth of January, and
and propose holding their Convention on the (en(A ?
He seems to be much gratified, too, at the idea that
it was because ' their last Convention, the one which
nominated General Saunders, met on the Slh, and
tho result of the campaign, was so disastrous to
their hopes, that they arc afraid to try the same hum
bug again." It becomes the Raleigh Register, to
sneer at the Democrats lor reverencing " the Slh of
January." His John Bull sympathies should not
carry him so lar. His hatred towards Gen. Jack
son is no doubt caused us much by the thrashing he
gav: the British on the"g'oriou3 8th," as by his
veto of the U. S. Bank. In ctsc of a war with
England, which she is trying to urge upon us, we
hope he will not be found by the side of his elder
brother tory, of the National Intelligencer, icriling
against the country that gf're Aim his bread.
If he had consulte d his Almanac he would hare
found good and sufficient reasons for pass:ng ly
the 8th ; but he thought it too good an oppoitunity
of tasting a slur on the memory the 8th, under cov
ei of a taunt at the democrats.

York $700 worth nf fire works to celebrate Daw
son's election as Governor, and lhat they cfler d
them to the Democrats at a great bargain after the
Used, for convenience.
The Madisonian in reply to an article of the Te
tersburg Intelligencer, a full blooded Whig print,
" When the so-called " Conservatives "
resolved to defeat Mr Van Buren and his Sub
Treasury, it was agreed, that (he then Admin
istration was diseased and corrupted, and that
a dose of calomel ought to be administered.
Our friend always regarded the Whigs as the
calomel, that should purge and restore the Ad
ministration to health, when purified Repub
licanism would again resume its sway."
J low do you like that, friend Hale? The Madi
sonian tells you to -your face, he is not of your kid
ney, and that lhe Conservatives, of i horn he is the
organ, only used the Whig party as a stepping stone
a convenience, to aid them to power.
"if vou could si.c'.he abundance of tho ncccssarirV
comforts and luxuries of 1 fe which unprotected agri-
cultural industry has delivered from a tire of non-
existence during the present tcason, you could not "
wonder that the gentlemen who intend to live high
on discount, d.tid nds and exchange premium,
should make another desperate struggle to jrasp
what will ba left, aft r pajing us the cost of delivery
from the womb of our common mother, commis

The following lines have been sent us for publi
cation, by a young friend at C iapel Hi!!. In his
letter accompanying the lines, he says:
'"These lines were wr'tten by a negro slave, whose
master, a Mr Horton, lives 7 or 8 miles from this
village. He has long been employed by the stu
dents to write acrostics on Ihe names of their fair
ones, and in accordance with this custom he may be
scert every Sabbath afternoon, when health permits,
hastening t.i C. .liege with his hat and pockets we I
filled with poetry. He has lo work as any other
s'ave, a:id consequently his only time f( r writing is
at a Iat : hour of the nihf, Tho. "Blac't B ird," for
so the poet is called, h is written sufficient to maltc
a volume of about 100 pages he is desirous of hav
ing his poetry published, fr he is well pleased to bo
praised or commended for his talents, and he, as is
quite natural, appears to think that the volume wou'd
en ible him to establish a reputation, which Would
at length enable him to stand o a fooling with some
of the poets of our t:mes. He has not expressed any
thing lo th s effect, but it is my bcliel."

Dear Sib: The time is app oachlng when a
decision must be made wiicther wo who support
and defend lhe institutions bequeathed us by our an
cestors will retain our 1 berties in our own hands,
or make ourselves the degraded sons of wiser fath
ers, by voluntarily surrendering them to the merci
ful custody of those w ho scarcely touch the burdens
of our Government with the tips of their lingers.
In order, that all the friends of equal rights
throughout our State may be able to act in concert,
on well defined and long cherished principles, it is
thought advisable by-many of our good citizens that
a convention of the people be held in Fayetteville,
some time during the coining winter, for the purpose
of uniting on some suitable person to fill the Ex
ecutive chair of North Carolina, for the next term, i
whose devotion to Republican principle will assure
us that he will watch faithfully over the wel are of
the entire democracy of numbers, regardless of the
menacing influence of exclusively privileged incor
porated wealth. a
The Federal leaders in this section are again try
ing to tighten the whig traces on a sufficie.it num

hold on to their ill gotten power; and alas, those
who love an empty name a mess of whiggery a
little local power and the flattery of the" little

ples, or their country's good, will still continue to
be their victim, but the republican branch of the
whig party take no pleasure in their movements,
lhe honest voters of the Country will not be further
trifled with, a majority of those who have hereto
fore supported whig aspirants, done so because they
honestly believed they would thereby advocate the
cause of official responsibility, honesty, industry,
and economy, bit the "wayfaring man" cannot

The Cause.
A great effort is making by certain Clay "
papers, to show lhat the " untoward " results
ot the recent elections is attributable to the
course of President Tyler, iu vetoing the I3ai&
bills. A few facts will throw light upon the
It should be borne in mind that the first Ve
to was issued on the 16th of August, aud the
second on the 9th of September.
In the early part of August, before the first
Veto was issued, and still longer before a
knowledge of its being issued, had reached
those distant States, elections were held in In
diana, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, and
Alabama. It will not be pretended that these
elections were, or could be influenced by the
Vetoes, which had as yet had no existence,
so far as appeared, the Bankites were iu the
iuii nae ot successful experiment, with every
prospect of soon realizing the object of their
aspirations. Under these circumstances the
above mentioned elections were held.
in Indiana, the elections were only for mem
bers oi the legislature. The result was, that
the Whig majority of 17 in the Senate was
reduced to 7; while in the House the Whi"
majority of 55 (out of 100 members) was
changed to an Opposition majority of 1 1. AH
that saved the Senate was the fact that one
half of the members held over, being elected
r(Tr Harrison's majority in-tha
State last .November, was 13,698.
In Kentucky, likewise, tho election mu
confined to the choice of Senators and Repre
sentatives. This State gave Harrison, last.
JNovember, a majority of 24,873. Of course,,
such a majority was not likely to be neutral
ized m nine months. Accordingly the Whig
carried both Houses by large majorities.
In .Tennessee, the vote for Polk, (as Gov
ernor) last August was 746 greater than Van
Buren's vote last November, while the vote
for Jones (Whig) was 8,012 less than Harris
In Alabama, all the counties excepf five,,
show, as the result of the gubernatorial election
m August, a falling off in the Whig rote,
compared with Harrison's last November, ot
? Ao,d m lhe0PPOtHm vote, a falling
r i comPared with Van Buren's.
In Illinois, the CommwHAnni Ai: it
August showed a falling off of 11,349 in the
" u.8 vote, iz,u w the Opposition vote.
