COL. PAINE. The Raleigh Register says that the reports that Col. Paine had resigned, and that he was to be court-martialed, are untrue ; that on the contrary, the Court of Inquiry have $V approved his course, and complimented him in the highest degree ; that he has not resigned, but obtained a leave of absence, and is expected home We shall see. in a very short time .,. H AIL STORM. The Charleston papers state that on the evening of the 2d inst., that place was visited by a tremendous hail storm, breaking s -window glass, &.c. Stones fell the size of a large fvjtien's egtr, measuring 7,7 , 7; and 9 inches in cir--eurnference, and some weighing four and five ounces. 00- We regret to learn that one of the recruits f 'Who went from here two 'weeks ago, to Fort .Moultrie, while on the passage between Wil mington and Charleston, jumped overboard and Wj.-i seen no more. His name was Robt. Monroe. Left a wife and two children : THAT LETTER. It is now st.ited by some of the knowing editors, that the letter of Gen. Tay lor to Capt. Allison, taken in connection with om other eircumat tures, ;ive.s some ground for : the opinion that .said Idler wjs not dictated by (ion. T.ivlor. The quid mines (newsmongers) altout Washington city, are beginning to suspect '?, t h.tt the letter was prepared in Washington or Vel-M'where, and forwarded, for the General's ap - rv.d. - The editor of the Union says that it hears on its r - fire intrinsic proof that it is not the composition . - of Ge.i. T.tylor. One supposition is, that it may h. e been written by Major Bliss, his major-domo; but the neire-t approach to establishing the THE SAME OLD GAME. - -- -The fox and the goose. There is a " well known fable of Esop," called the fox and the goose; in which it is stated that the fox invited the goose to dinner one day, and had soup in a diah. Of course the goose could hardly get a taste, while the . fox lapped it up with great ease with his tongue. The goose did not say any thing, but probably like paddy's owl, "kip.;.diYil,of a thinking." Sometime after, the.gooae.retprned the compliment, and invited the fox,. Jo dinner, and took the occasion to be even with the' fox, by having some nice sweet meats in a jar with along neck; so that the goose could easily insert her long bill down into it, while, the: fox was obliged to be content to stand by and lick ( ff what the goose spilled on the outride of the jar. ' We never think of the Presidential campaign of 1S40, without being reminded of this "well known fabl trf" JEso.n The whig party of that day might be called the fox, who invited the goose, Harrison 'and Tyler, to be their candidates, not for any love they had lor- them, but juat to make use. of, them. Although Gen. Harrison -was elected, he teas not the President, except in name. We have heretofore - published ample proof of this; but recently, something else has come to light, fur therillastrfingTt':"'"Mr James Lyons, of Rich mond, Va; has published a letter, but a few weeks ago, (we do not know why he did it, but presume there. Was some good reason) in which he says he was very much' opposed to an extra session of Congress, in'184!, (a measure univer sally condemned by the democratic party) and expressed his regret to President Harrison; and the President answered that he was opposed to it himself but that gentlemen high in the confi dence of the whig party said that the govern ment could not get along without it(!) Here it is seen at once that the President was not allowed to exercise his judgment upon the matter Mr Lyons further asked what were the objects of the extra session; when President Harri son replied that it would only meet to provide the ways and means, by loan, or taxes of some sort ; that the bank question was not to be touch ed ; he desired that the sub-treasury should have an honest trial. (The same idea will be found in President Harrison's message.) So far, the foxes, or the whig politicians had gained their end; but it so turned out that in a very short time, they found the goose an over match for them; (and this we doubt not they would have found out if President Harrison had lived;) President Tyler had no idea of, being so pliant; he had some opinions of his own, and he boldly asserted them; and the foxy politi cians soon found that instead of having full sway, they could only stand round and lick the jar. Now, we have not the slightest doubt but what the Tatfor wing of the whig party desires to play the same game that was played in 1S-10. The Taylor men think they had better run Gen. Taylor, and try. to dazzle the eyes of the voters with his military fame ; and if they can make him President, why they can also make him do just as they please. In this they show a tvantof sense; and, as many of their own party now tell them, it shows that they never learn by experience. NOTICE TO QUIT. An abolitionist, calling himself Dr. L. M jor, made his appearance in Barnwell district, S C, under the plea of -lecturing on Animal Magnet ism. The inhabitants soon learned his character, and on the 2d of May, called a public meeting at the Masonic Hll, on the subject. It was stated . .;,ch irj;e, is m.ule out by the Mobile Register. That - -paper s.xyn that the Nashville Whig, edited by j to the meeting that Major hud acknowledged "llr Iiarruw, (lately a member of Congress) a few himself an abolitionist w-hen at the North, but since coming South his opinions had become modified; and went so fir as to sy that he, was in favor of slavery. In Beaufort district he had been seen in a field weeks before the appearance of Gen. Tiivlor's , letter, undertook to s.iy, upon "unquestionable 'evidence," what position Gen. Taylor was "ready "to avow his intention to occupy." The Whig, in r, making this revelation, appears to have used the ! with a number of slaves gathered about him tdentic.I language used by Gen. Taylor in his i ,AlIivn letter. f This is the ground of suspicion; and the only w.iy to i;et over it, is to say that Gen. Taylor Wrote a letter to the Nashville Whig, in which he ued the s une language he afterwards used in s1ii. Allison letter. 6 If NATIONAL CONVENTION. The Vice Presidency. The democratic National Convention will meet at Baltimore on the 22d of this month, to nomi nate a candidate to be voted for by the democra tic party of this great Republic, for President. Who that candidate will be, we cannot foresee, nor does it matter whom, so that he is a demo- .crat in all the essentials that constitute demo iVcracy. We have seen little or nothing published with Teard to the Vice Presidency; and in view of 'the ne ir approach of the time for selection, we "lake occasion to offer to the consideration of the -(Convention, the name of JAMES J. McKAY, of JS'orth Carolina. Mr McKay is known by reputation to all parts ,.end every extremity of our country. His long .JJtervice in Congress, and his uniform, consistent, nd moderate course, has earned a favorable re futation wherever he is known. Added to this, his services of late years, as Chairman of the Committee of Ways and Means, in which he has shown such untiring industry, such anxious .'olicitude to bring the expenses of the Govern 'inent within the most economical scale; and such impartiality in the appropriation of money to the different sections of the country, are by no means " the least recommendation which can be claimed ' for a public servant. l And of all the States in the Union, we know !f none more, although some may be equally, en titled to the honor of having one of her states " men thus endorsed by nomination for the high - Td'stinction of Vice President. We therefore, in 'the name of the democrats of North Carolina, present her faithful public servant to the Balti- ;more Convention And we respectfully ask 'our brethren of the democratic press to join us ..in this presentation. :t .ii- i i, .... i -in - A main of cocks" was advertised to be fought, .... commencing this day, at Brinckleyville, N. C, - between Robt. Jones and Nicholas Arrington, "for $500 a side! Where is Santa Anna? He ought to be there ! For cock fighting, horse racing, and bragging, he. has no superior. BEARER OF DESPATCHES. J. L. Collins, Esq., or Squire Collins, recently taken prisoner at San Antonio, out since escap ' ed, passed, through this place yesterday morning - Vom the city of Chihuahua, Mexico, with des. y patches from Gen. Price's command, and from Jen. Wool, to the 'city of Washington. Wil tington Commercial. The owner drove ' him off, and questioned the slaves as to what he had been saying, but they gave no satisfactory answers He was said to be traveling with a woman not clear white. Resolutions were then adopted requiring Major to quit the village. The committee appointed for the purpose, informed him of the decision of the meeting. He asserted his innocence of the charge, and claimed to be heard before the meet ing, which was allowed ; but he talked to but little purpose, and said nothing to clear himself of the suspicions and evidences against him. So a committee often was appointed to see that he left forthwith, and to inform him that his second appearance would call for more ultra measures. They ought to have hung him. These daring fanatics who invade the sanctity of constitutional right, deserve no more commiseration er leni ency than the adulterous dog who invades the family peace and happiness of his neighbor. FOR LIBERIA. The Liberia packet sailed from Baltimore on the 11th inst., with a large number of emigrants to the great republic of emancipated slaves. Of these, 60 were emanci pated for that purpose by the will of Nancy Cain ; I r , by John ft.' Chambliss ; 25 by will of Major Early; 32 by Capt. Jas.- Early; 6 by Mrs Ann S. Rice, all of Virginia; and 4 by Thos. D. Bannehan of North 'Carolina ; making 13S in all. . While on the subject of Liberia, we' may as well state that the President has appointed Jas. W. Lugenbeel, of Maryland, Commercial Agent of the United States' at Monrovia, in Liberia. Mr Lugenbeel is an excellent man, and an ardent friend of the policy of colonization. "Oh! look ahere! Oh! look awhar?. Look right over yander, Dont you see the old grey goose. Smiling at the gander ? Just imagine the Hon. Thos. L. Clingman and other whigs, charging the administration with keeping back the Slidell Instructions, and at the same time cutely insinuating that the said In structions had been refused to the House but furnished to a partizan newspaper ; and this in the face of the fact, that the Senate with all its secret sessions, closed doors, and sworn officers, had not been able to keep the " paper snatchers" of the press from obtaining a copy of the Treaty ! And that notwithstanding the Senate caught a fellow named Nugent (a most villainous name) and made him confess that he sent ofi the treaty, they could not make him tell how he got it, al though they kept him locked up in a room for weeks. . - ' ft The President is abased because the pa per snatchers" get hold of important documents, but we have heard no whig abusing the Senate for letting the treaty slip through their fingers. THIRTIETH CONGRESS 1st SESSION. May 3, In the Senate petitions for the pur chase of Mount Vernon were presented by Messrs j Sturgeon and Crittenden. Mr Sutler, from the j Committee on the Judiciary, made a report on the resolutions of the legislature of Kentucky, asking for a law for the recovery of runaway slaves, accompanied by a bill. Mr Butler read the report, which is very long, and the bill was read a first tjme. On .motion of. Mr Atchison, 10.000 extra copies of the!. report were ordered, to be printed," "On motion of MHaonegan ; .: Resolved. .

On motion of Mr Douglas, the Senate took up therbQl granting to the State of Illinois, the right of way, nd a donation of public land, for making a railroad, connecting the upper and lower Mississippi with the chain of north ern Lakes, at Chicago. -'. , This bill led to .considerable dtscussioh-Vn which Mr Douglas, Mr Clarke, Mr NilesjMr Crittenden, Mr Bagby, Mr Butler, Mr Bentod, Mr Cass, Mr Calhoun, Mr Foote, and others took part ; when the question was taken by yeas and nays ordering the bill to be engrossed, and decid ed in the affirmative yeas 24, nays 11. In the House, Mr McClelland, from the spe cial committee on that subject, reported a bill ceding public lands to Asa Whitney, of New York, to enable him to construct a railroad from Lake Michigan to the Pacific Ocean ; which was twice read, referred to Committee of the Whole on the state of the Union. May 4. Mr Hannegan, from the Committee on Foreign Relations, reported a bill to enable the President to take temporary military occupa tion of Yucatan ; which was read a first time. Mr H. asked for the second reading, which was agreed to. The bill having been read a second time Mr H. moved that the bill be postponed, and made the special order for to-morrow. On this subject a protracted discussion took place, in which Mr Calhoun, Mr Hannegan, Mr Hale, Mr Foote, Mr Wescott, Mr Cass, and Mr Niles participated. Mr Calhoun moved that the bill be made the special order for Friday; which was negatived ayes 12, noes 17. The bill was then made the special order for. to-morrow. A bill to increase the efficiency of the army by. a retired list for disabled officers, was taken up, on motion of Mr Davis of Mississippi, and made the special order for Monday. Mr Calhoun submitted a resolution, which was agreed to, calling on the President for all the correspondence between the State Department and the authorities of Yucatan. The Senate then adjourned. In the House, the committees were called for reports. Mr Murphy, from the Committee on the Libra ry, reported a bill to regulate the exchanges of Congress documents with foreign countries. Mr Grinnell, from the Committee on Com merce, reported a bill for free trade with Cana da, in articles the growth and production of this country. A resolution was adopted, (from the Com mittee on Public Lands,) directing the Clerk ot the House to cause to be prepared separate maps distinguishing the public lands in each State, with the progress of the surveys, and sales thereof; to be revised and renewed every suc ceeding session of Congress. A bill to regulate the postage on newspapers was reported from the Committee on the Post Office and Post Roads. A proposition for the establishment ot two national foundries and an armory, was reported by Mr Burt, from the Committee on Military Affairs, The Senate amendments to the resolution of thanks to Gen. Zachary Taylor, the officers and men under his command, were concurred in. The Senate ten regiment bill was referred to the Committee on Military affairs, after an inef fectual motion by Mr Boyd to refer to the Com mittee of the Whole on the state of the Union. The Senate joint resolution in relation to con tracts for hemp for the navy, was read three times and passed. The bill to repeal the law of last year, to re duce the general officers of the army upon the termination-of the war, was passed byyeasSS nays G6.

May 6, In the Senate Mr Atchison introduc ed a bill, granting to the State of Missouri the right of way through a portion of the public lands tor a canal. The Senate then took up the bill to enable the President to take temporary military occupation of the territory of Yucatan. Mr Hannegan opened the debate with an ex position of the views of the President and the provisions of the bill. Mr Claj'ton expressed his intention to vote against the bill, on the ground that it was a vio lation of our treaty stipulations with Mexico and of the existing armistice. Mr Davis of Mississippi replied, for the purpose of refuting this argument, and moved an amend ment as a substitute for the bill, making it mere ly an authority to raise an additional force for the war with Mexico. Mr Crittenden thought this would entirely defeat the object of the President. He wished to have more light before he could give his vote Mr Foote replied at length, and supported the bill. The Senate, without arriving at any conclu sion, then adjourned till Monday. In the House, the Speaker communicated a paper from the agent of Mr Walsh, consul of the United States at Paris, relative to the presenta tion to Congress of a portrait of Baron De Kalb, as an offering from the survivors of his family. Mr Stewart, of Pennsylvania, essayed ineffec tually to introduce the "five points' of Gen. Tay lor's letter of April 22d, by way of resolutions. The remainder of the day was spent in Com mittee of the Whole (Mr Kaufman in the chair) upon the consideration of bills on the private calendar. Mat 8, In the Senate, Mr Borland, on leave, introduced a bill to grant to the State of Arkan sas certain unsold lands, subject to overflow, tor purposes of internal improvement, education, and other purposes, in f aid SUte.

OUR CANDIDATE IN THE FIELD! It affords us much pleasure to be able to announce to our readers, that Col. Reid has accepted the nomination as the Demo cratic Candidate for Governor, and is al ready in the field. He will meet Mr Man ly in Newbern to-day, and will accompany him to Kingston, after which he expects to speak at Washington, Swan Quarter, Plymouth, Windsor, Halifax, and Louis burg. Other appointments will be an nounced in due time. We have a Candidate for Governor whose nomination has been hailed with enthusi asm by the party in all parts of the State, and who will labor in the good cause with as much energy and vigor as his physical strength will permit. At the call of his friends, disregarding all personal considera tions, and animated solely by the wish to see our noble principles triumph in North Carolina, he has stepped forward to bear our flag ; and it is the duty, as we have no doubt it will be the pleasure, of every De tnocrat to second his exertions and to aid him in the labors of the canvass. Now is the time above all others to redeem North Carolina. Her people are at heart Demo cratic, and all that is needed is, such facts and arguments as our friends have it in their power to present, and such efforts as are due to a cause which has every thing to recommend it to popular favor and regard. We present below the Corresponoence between the Committee and Col. Reid: Raleigh, April 14, 1848. . Dkar Sir : We have the honor to inform you that the Democratic State Convention which assembled on the 1 2th instant, unani mously nominated you as the Democratic candidate for Governor of North Carolina at the ensuing election. On the part of that Convention we have to say, that you are earnestly requested to accept the nomi nation ; and to this authorized solicitation we beg leave to add an expression of the hope that you will consent to be tiie candi date of our party. With sentiments of high regard, we are sir, your obedient servants, WILLIAM S- ASHE, JNO. W. CUNNINGHAM, SAMUEL J. PERSON, Committee. Hon. David S Reid. tea JTertb Caraiiniae- TBS RCHABXTES.

Gentlemen : Your letter of the 14th ultimo, informing me of my nomination, by the State Convention, as the Democratic Candidate for Governor at the ensuing election was. duly received. The honor thus conferred was unsought and unex pected. Having spent much of inj time in political life, it was my settled determin ation to devote myself entirely, for a while, at least, to private pursuits ; and doubting whether my health would permit me to undergo the labor and fatigue of the can vass, 1 had concluded to decline the nom ination. Subsequent reflection, however, as to the effect ot such a course, in disap pointing the wishes and expectations of my political friends at this important crisis, has caused me to reverse that determina tion, and to say to you that I accept the nomination, and tender to you my warmest exertions in behalf of the great principles ol the Uemocratic party It will be impossible for me to visit every County in the State between this and the day of the election ; but relying upon the active co-operation of the Democratic party, I shall leave home to-morrow to enter upon the canvass, and shall devote whatever energies 1 may possess to its faithful pro secution. Be pleased, gentlemen, to accept my acknowledgements for the courteous man ner in which you have discharged the du ties assigned you by the Convention. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, DAVIDS. REID. To Messrs. Ashe, Cunningham, and Per son, Committee. Qc- Mr Clay in his late letter of acquiescent dictation says : They " (my friends) have re presented to me that the withdrawal of my name would be fatal to the success, and perhaps lead to the dissolution, of the party with which I have been associated, especially in the free States," Mr Clay acquiesces in the opinion by consent ing to become the candidate ; and this very opin ion, and his acquiescence, proves that in the opinion of the. whigs, their; avowed political principles (if they tave any other principle than the principle of -opposition to democracy) are not capable of rallying a party, nor worth con tending for ; in short, that it is with them, the man and not the principle of government that they contend for. 0O It is said that an effort will be made to in duce Gen.

There is a Tent of this Order ia Fayetteville. composed of young men mostly, and is ia - a prosperous condition. As it has been organised but a short time, it does not number as high as in other parts of tkw State. It has always been a matter of surprise and regret to us that this Order is not crowded with old and influential citizens. These are the persons who ought to take the lead in such a noble cause, and set a pure example to yonnger ones. But. instead of this, there are those who bad rather discourage than encourage tbe good work. If they wish it prosperity. 1 t them manifest it by -sending in their names."

W. USEFUL INSTRUMENTS. We have just looked over Dr. Fitch's treatise on Consumption, and lectures on the manner of of promoting general health, which is an inter esting little book. The Doctor has invented several instruments to be used by those subject to consumption, or contraction of the chest, or round shoulders. These instruments are for sale at the Drug Store of Mr Hinsdale. There is a shoulder brace ; an abdominal supporter, and an inhaling tube for the lungs. N. C. Regiment.
