CAROLINA, for Governor and members of Legislature, &c. will take plaee in this State, on the 1st Thursday in August, being the thh day, and only 19 days from t-day. We therefore take this opportunity to say a few words on the subject. We, have had some difficulties about the candidate for Gov ernor ; but they have been settled ; Mr Leak, who thought he had not bfen fairly dealt by in the action of the Central Committee, rctir- ed checifully, alter the die was ca-t against j him the second time; audit lernaius now; for the democratic parly in North Carolina, j to throw aside every feeling of disappoint- 1 rneut, and to unite their strength, and their whole strength, upon the man who stands forth before thern as the democratic candi didal, ninde so by an authority which the democratic parly itself created. No democrat should allow hirnsel ', from any feelings or motives whatever, to be sway- j ed fiom the one great object of every true j democrat, the maintenance of democratic men j and measures. We therefore look upon it as the duty of every democrat, to vote for Mi Shepard for Governor of Noith Carolina. He is the Reprejeutative of the democratic party iu the Stale, in the present election, and iu him, the democratic party must either win j or iose. And how iuipoitaut it is that we should win ! Let us look abroad : iu every State, the democratic paily is in a flourishing condition ; where it is not in the ascendant, U is in high spirits, and looking forward to a d iy when democratic principles shall tiiumph. At the head of the nation stands our demo cratic President our democratic Senate Our democratic House of Representatives. Thus, in the Union, we have succeeded whh a success that should make glad every demo cratic heart. We have accomplished the an nexation of Texas, a great leading measure of democ ratic policy ; and we are now thrash ing the Mexicans, to make them come to a settlement about the boundary, and to make them pay our citizens ihe millions of money they owe us. We have settled the Orejjon question, that long undecide j question. We have remodelled the Tariff, and thus lighten ed the buithcns of the people. As a great patty, o have accomplished all these great measures, and let us suive to put North Carolina in the list of great Democratic Slates, where she stood iu the days of th; gieal Jackson. Our opponents abuse and villi Fy our democratic candidate, Mr Shepaid, and so they do all our candidates ; they abused Mr Polk like a pickpocket, bat since he has been elected, some of them have confessed (hat I hey were deceived in him. Let us, therefore, adhere ihe closer to our candidates when the whigs or tories abuse them most let us all vote for the democratic caudidatc. With regard to the election in this county? it is known that there are four candidates for th - Commons. Tuo have been nominated by a very respectable Convention of Dele gates from neaity all parts of the county the other two announced themselves candidates iu opposition to them, at our June Court. They ate all four democrats. Messrs.-Pe-niam and Shaw, are the nominees of the Con veution. They ase men again-t whose char acters naught can b-o said disrespectful both of them country gentlemen and f. timers. Messis. Atkins and Minis, the former a law yer, the laltet a merchant, are gentlemen with whom we aie acquainted, and whom we wish well indiv ideally ; but we iei:iel that they have hot determined upon a diffeient course. In closing, we thiuk it a duty the demo cratic party owe to themselves to sustain the party organization; and we respectfully nod seriously warn them of the evil consequences that one false step in this election', may birng to the party in this county in after elections.

Com den Journal. TEE NORM, CONGRESSIONAL. In the Senate on the 8th, Mr Hanuegau brought up his resolution calling on the Pre sident to furnish the Senate with copies of all orders issued to Gen.

The bill to graduate and reduce the pi ice of the public lands, was recommended by the trident he purpose- of putting the pub lie lauds at saleable prices, and thus biiuMug the money into the Treasury. The argument Hsed iu favor of the bill, is, thai all the good lands have ben sold at ihe fixed price for public lands, namely 1 25 per acre, and that, as a matter of course, after all ihe good lands have ben picked out at this price, the balance are of dull sale; aud that ti is not fair lo expect persons wi.-bin-i to settle in the west, to pay lis much for lauds that have been pick ed, aud the good purchased, as those paid who have picked the good lands. Further, that it is desirable to sell the lands, and that they will not sell at the present price. The supporters of the bill are western men. Those who oppose the bill are northern and eastern men, mostly, and ueaily tho whole of the whig pa'ty. They oppose it because they are in favor of keeping the lands at the pre sent price, and of distributing the proceeds of the sales among the S'ates, so that the old States can have a share. This, however, the West will probably never agree to. It is also contended that the lands aie woith $1 25 to any person who want ; ami that all who want them will b y at that price as soon as if they were cheaper; and that only a certain quantity to supply the demand can be sold any how. It is probably the best policy for the gov ernment to get lid of the pub'ic lauds by sale, as far as possible, aud then by cession to the States in which the lands lie; for they have been a bono of contention Ion; enough. In ihe Senate 011 the 9ih, a bill to establish a n Exocut :ve Bureau, to tie under Ihft-cmurol of the President, was referred to the Judiciary Committee. The bill directing the President to sell the reserved mineral lands in the State of Illinois and Wisconsin and Iowa territories, supposed to contain lead ore, was passed. The Senate then passed the bill to graduate the price of the public lands : there were 26 votes for it, aud IS against it. We shall pub lish the bill when it passes both Houses. Mr Rusk, from Texaa, moved to take up the bill to authorize the President f the U. States to increase ihe naval force of the U. States by adding thereto the naval es tablishment of the late Republic of Texas. Mr Faiifield opposed the bill. He said in his opiniou it had no good foundation, either iu principle or expediency, but was violative of both. The fiiends of the bill contended, said Mr.Fai' field, that its object was emb'aeed in ihe joint resolution; and lhat the term " navy" there used, embraced officers as well as ships ; but the joint resolution, anuexing Texas, he declared, could not be made to mean that the officers as well as ships of ihe Texas Navy were 10 be attached to the IT. S. Navy. He was under the impression tliat there were no officers of the Texan Navy; that the whole navy was disbanded before an nexation took place. The ouly officer abiut whom there appeared to be any dispute, was Captain Moore, who left the U.S. Navy n 1S39, as a Lieutenant, to take a Captaincy in the Tex in Navy. Mr Faiifield was opposed t tho proposition to let Mr Mooiecome back into the U. S. Navy with the rank of Captait:f he would only agree to his coming back as Lieutenant. The bill was then hlid aide. The Senate then proceeded to the consid eration of the Warehouse bill ; and Mr Dix of New York, spoke soure two hours on the subject, and the Senate then proceeded to iass on the amendments; and the bill was then I o-dered to bo printed. !

The graduation bill was then lkeu up. j 31 r McKay said lhat he was unwilling b j make any material change iu the laud system, j but he was in tavor o graduating ihe price, because it was only justice that inferi or lands should be valued at less thau good fends. He j 1 : . t 1. offered an amendment reducing the lands gradually according to his views. The amendment was rejected, but again recon- CJAMOlLilyiAN sidered, but the House adjourned iii a froth without agdin taking the question. " In the Senate on the 14th, Mr Webster made a loug speech against the bill from the House to reduce Ihe tariff of 1S42. Mr Clayton made a long speech iu opposition to the Warehouse bill. In the Houge, the amendment of Mr Mc Iviy to the graduation hill, rejected yesterday, was to-day passed, and the bid was then pas sed by a riij(J,ity of three, all the whigs we believe, against it. The bill was then sent to the Sr-nate. I he bill from ;he Senate providing for the improvement of Mississippi, Ohio, and Ar kansas rivers, was rejected by 1S to 43. The graduation bill, the Tariffbill, and the alehouse bill vviii no doubt become laws.

We were therefore glad to find iu the Stan dard, a communication, mng the facts, un distorted by partizin malice, from which we make thi; folio. v rn extracts Iu the Chronicle of the 5th of June we are 'old that Mr Shepard said " all Bank officers bth ht subjects fr the gallow," and the Edi tor says " (his was an unfortunate declaration, for several democratic Rank officers sat bo- fore him," &c. Agteeable to my count there was but one (not several") democratic Bank director present ; and after a I0112 pause, aud finding that these democratic Bank officers '" would not sustain him iu hi incorrect charge upon Mr Shepard, the Chro nicle of ihe 29:h of June, in order to procure ceitificates I suppose, shuttles and abandons the first charge, aud substitutes another which he says is given aceo ding to the notes he took of the speech. Shall we ever be told why these notes were not consulted in the first instance'? Was it because they were not ihei. iu existence ? Bat to the second or substituted charge against Mr Shepard: He is made to say of all Bank officers that "they are a set of desperate fellows fit for any thing but most of all fit for the gallows"! Can any man of good sound mind, uninflu enced by pa-ty prejudices, be made to believe that Mr Shepaid here alluded to any but dis honest Jjank officers, such as bad been guilty of high crimes and theft I repeat, can any oue be led lo believe that Mr Shepaid would act so foolish and unguarded, when ho iu the same speech and almost iu the same breath highly applauded and justified, the course pur sued by the able and justly distinguished Pie- sideut and other officers of the North Caroli na Bank 1 'l hat he did use rough language whH speaking of corrupt, togueish Bank of-ticers-pr IdcipaNy ol" the old United States Bank, and those only none who heard htm will pretend lo deny ; and that his remarks applied to those who acted well and honestly, none will agree, that I have heard of, except those eight whigs, a'ud among (hem the Presi dent, Cashior and one Director of the Milton Bank, and one good democrat, that have at tached their names to the certificates contain ed iu the Chronicle of the 2Gth of June. It may bo contended that one of these Bank certificate gentlemen is a democrat. I agree that he converses aud acts like oue everywhere, but at the ballot-box. The fol lowing remarks of the Chronicle of the 25;h of June, instead of convicting Mr Shepaid, go plainly into his defence aud fully acquit him of tho substituted charge, by showing that he only referred to dishonest, rogueish Bank officers who have stolen their thous ands, " more or less I suppose. Here follow the remaiks of the Chronicle on this part of Mr Shepard's speech : "He said, while dvvel ' ling on the power of these institutions, that ' the poor man who steals his neighbor's pig is punished at the whipping post if found 'guilty; but the Bank officer who steals his ' thousands " mind reader, mind this expres sion, who steals his thousands," aud no oth er officer is spoken of "is permitted to go scot fiee.:' This, says the Chronicle, is 'the substance if not bis pieeise words 5-and ' in immediate connexion, speaking of tho 'difficulty of the law lo reach these offi-ers, ' he emphatically said, they are a desparate set ' of fellows fit lor any thing but most of all 'fit for the gallows." It will here be seen by the Chronicle's own showing, which pro fesses to give the substance if not the pro- cise words," that Mr Shepard stands acquit ted, because he only alluded to Bank officers who steal their thousands.

Dr. .McDowell vv.is a native of Ireland, and waC horn at Balldavy, Parish l Hollywood, county Dow 11, 011 ihg ttftday.of lov. 1775. After aotpjtr iaa g'wd ciussL-al education, and uader4rnin2 suveril years apprenticeship to an Apothecary in the n"ihhoring cil v of Belfast, he commenced and iTiiisheci his mcdicui e luentiou at the Uuiversity ot tirJa4fow, Scot'ttiid havinir received Diplomas in the dilTere it branches of his profession from that celebrated lusntutio'i. . Being from liis earliest youth an ardent adnvrer of liberty, whilst an ap prentice, and wfdiout the finowletfe of his grand father, who was a strict loyalist, and with whom he at that tune resided, he took part with his coun trymen, the united Irishmen, in their unsuccess ful hut noble and patriotic struggle for the eman cipation of Ireland from English bondage and op. prestion, and W is present at the disastrous battle ot" Ballynahiuch, serv ing in a company commanded hy hi3 eld t and only brother, in which battle the united Irishmen hastily collceted, arid armed, tor the most part, with pikes, were defeated hy a corps of British regulars, and Gen. Monroe, their comnunder, !ain. As his participation in this battle was either concealed or remained unnoticed, he.e ontinued t perform his duties a3 an apprentice eiiti! he repaired to Glasgow as stated. His bro ther, less fortunate, was aunii" the proscribed, and. took refuge in New York, where he remained untd the amnesty offered by ih British Government to the Itebcls.as they were called, enabled biin to re turn to Ireland. S tortly after completing his medical studies, Dr. AlcUowe I eimarked for this country, and arrived on the Cape Fear, in Bladen county, in the fall of 13 12, and af er an interval of two or three years, which he passed am in some of his distant rela-H tives, (a common ancestor ot his and theirs by the -name of Mclbe having emigrated to this country early in the last century, and who was also an an " I cotor of the lute Col. Win. McRee, formerly ol'ifie LTnFte.r States army, of -whom it is said Qen. Ber nard, while in this country, declared that lit was more competent to command an army of 1 00,000 men than any man in America,) he established himself as a physician in the town of Efzibcllv, where and in its immediate vicinity, be continued to reside lor I lie remainder ot his days On his arrival in this country, Dr McDowell at tached himself to the political parfy Which he be lieved to be most favorable to ihe largest liberty of man -the great republican party of the day ; and when Mr Jeilerson was a candidate the second time for the Presidency, the Doctor, although he had not been long ia this country, -had 30 tar ac quired the confidence of his parly, as to be appoint ed one of three delegates to a convention at South Vashinton, to select a republican candidate for Elector in the Wilmington district. From that day he stood by the democratic party through good and evil report, believing that it embodied the princi ples of the old Republican party, with whfch he bad been so long identified. This circimistance is not related to excite tin- slightest teeling in the Oosom of any one who differed from him in political opin ion, but merely to show his consist ntv, and firm adherence to what he believed to be right. Well "rounded in t'le principles of his profession, from a thorough education, he soon acquired an extensive practice In aursery he was remarkably skilful, having" performed many uilncu't. operations not ou ly i;i his own but in several of ihe adjoining coun ties. Alfhough popular as a physician, and lor most of the time having the whole fiwld of practice to himself, he was very moderate in his charges, and wli3n called on was never known to withhold his services from the poor and destitute. Without courting popularity, or resorting ti any of the arts of a demagogue, he was equally popular as a man; as a physician open and frank, yet unpretending and unassuming lair and honest in all his deal ings, he acquired and retained this esteem and rr spect ofall who knew him. He filled nuccrnsi-yely the offices of Clerk and Master in Equity, clerk of tho County Court, and for" many years clerk of the Superior Court ; those offices in the county of B a dea having been unit'.-d in the same person by a special act of the Legislature.
