Hall caught fire on the f .south wing and nearly consumed the roof; but through the promptness of the fire wardens and the great exertions of the Engine companies and the citizens, it was checked, and not allowed to spread. DAVID S. REID. Our accounts from the West, of the speaking of Messrs Reid and Manly, afford no ground for despondency on the part of the democratic candidate. Where Mr Reid is know n best he is loved most. He will get a storm ing vote in Rockingham, and in Guilford, he will, -e have no doubt, cut deep into his opponent. In Orange, he will no doubt get a majority; Stokes will give him a good vote. Cumberland will do her duty ; we hope that every democrat, who is able, will think enough of his democracy to go to the polls. VA KK DISTRICT. We learn from the Stand ard, that Perrin Busbee, Esq., has been appoint ed democratic Elector for that district and lias accepted the appointment. A. W. Miller, Esq., la the whig Elector. NEW FLOUR. A load ot new Flour, sent " down by Col. Hancock, arrived in Fayetteville, on the 2Sth ult. and sold 5 50 to $6. The Charleston Courier states that the Pal fl&etto Regiment, or seven companies of it had arrived at Mobile on Saturday hist, and would AOon reach Charleston. MISSISSIPPI. A letter from Choctaw county ays : ' The- nominees of the Baltimore Convention take well with the democrats generally." ELECTOR FOR THIS DISTRICT. We are reminded that no Elector for this Elec toral District has yet been appointed, and we are requested to give notice to the counties compos ' ing the district, to hold meetings, and appoint ', delegates to meet at Carthage, on Tuesday of July v'ourt, to nominate an Elector for the democratic j ticket, for this District. The w hig convention 'for thi purpose is advertised to be held on Mon d iy of the same week. The counties that are to send delegates to Car- thage are Cumberland, Moore, Randolph, Chat ham, Montgomery, and Stanly. MAINE SENATOR. Hon. Moses Norris, Jr, ' has been elected U. S. Senator from Maine, in ' place of C. G. Atherton, for six years from next . March He is a democrat. Cr- A destructive fire occurred in Norfolk. Va., on the night of the 11th of June. Over 60 houses were destroyed, and property to the amount of near $-.200,000 lost. Probably one-half covered by insurance. It was a populous part of the city, ranging on Woodside's Lane, Fayette street, "Vater street from the Lane to Washing ton street, and Maine street from Washington to Mr Chapman's. JrJ- The Greensborough (N. C.) Patriot, we are gl.id to see, is not disposed to underrate the character of our candidates for President and Vice President, as many of the papers do, from motives anything but honorable to them. That paper says it is the strongest ticket we could have nominated. The whigs of Richmond and Robeson have nominated Mr II. W. C&vington, of Richmond county, for Senator from Richmond and Robeson. WILL HE ACCEPT? There is considerable anxiety to see the letter of acceptance ofGenl. Taylor. The whigs of the north, or Clay whigs, are holding on with breathless anxiety. We have not heard whether a committee proceeded to Baton Rouge to inform him of the nomination, or not ; but if one did, they will not leave till they see the letter writ ten. Something depends on that letter, when it shall have been compared with those other letters. But if Genl. Taylor is a man of truth, he can not accept that nomination. We are waiting for his answer. The political sky is yet murky, and no man can see beyond the hurried vapors which are flying in all directions. If we are not grcatlylmistaken, the Taylor nomination will give the whigs trouble. A cloud is rising from the Southwest; it indicates that Genl. Taylor gave the Louisiana delegation no authority to speak of him and for him as they did in the whig conven tion. We shall see. SINGULAR. We think it is singular, and it must strike most men as strange, that a body of respectable gentlemen should meet in our town, and deliberately put forth resolutions declaring the government of the United States cor rupt, disorganizing, and ruinous" in its influ ences, as was done by a whig meeting held on the 20th, the proceedings of which we find in the Fayetteville Observer of the 27th. These gentlemen have not condescended to point us to any evidence of " ruin." On the con trary we find in the same paper, as well as in other papers, at least one evidence of high pros perity ; we mean the highly favorable terms up on which " the government" has been enabled to borrow sixteen millions of dollars, at a premium instead of a discount; and could have borrowed six times tbe amount, no doubt, with the same ease. : BARNBURNERS' CONVENTION. . Martin Van, uren nominated, but declined. The Convention of Barnburners assembled at Utica.New York, on 22d of June, for the purpose of nominating a candidate for the Presidency, for j whom those dissatisfied and disappointed office hunters, the barnburners, could vote,; as they would not rote the regular ticket, having deter mined on vexing the democracy of the south for the defeat of Mr Van Buren in the National Con vention of 1S44. . . ' . There were delegates present from Ohio, Con necticut, Wisconsin, and Massachusetts. A let ter was read from Martin Van Buren, in which he announced his determination, previously express ed in 1S44, to retire from political life, to be un changed. He declined a nomination. He re viewed the proceedings of the Baltimore Conven tion. He declares that all the barnburners did was perfectly right. He exhorts them to perse vere and make a separate nomination His lan guage was emphatic and filled with emotion, yet strong and dignified. He recommends firmness. His letter throughout is decided and emphatic, and in favor of free territory principles. He quoted eleven acts of Congress in support of his argument, embracing the administrations of Washington, Jefferson, Monroe, the elder Adams, Madison, Jackson, and his own. He de clared that he could not vote for Gen. Cass or Gen. Taylor that the extension of slavery was a moral curse. Another letter was read from Mr Van Buren, addressed to . a number of persons who had written to him, expressing their preference for him, and saying that they wanted Martin "Van Buren, the slave power broke him do'vn in 1S44, and we will break that power down in '43. This letter was said to be from Illinois. On the 23d of June, the second day, Mr Van Buren was unanimously nominated for President and Gen. Henry Dodge, of Wisconsin, for Vice Vice President. We have not yet seen whether Mr Van Buren positively declines or not, but Genl. Dodge pi omptly declined. He is U. S. senator from Wisconsin. HON. MILLARD FILLMORE, The Vice Presidential candidate of the whig party. The location of this gentleman, and his course in Congress, have attached to his name a suspi cion that he is not as safe a man for the south as could be desired. But the whigs seem perfectly willing to trust him, by extending to him a little " generous confidence." These are the memor able words of Mr Van Buren, who in 1836, in an swer to some gentlemen who had written him from North Carolina, asked for " a generous con fidence on the part of the South, in their breth ren of the North." Mr Van Buren, vexed and disappointed, now spurns the south. But our readers are no doubt anxious to know Mr Fillmore's opinions in regard to the great topic; and it is our duty to publish them, so far as we can do so by an exhibition of his public course. The whig papers at the south publish the fol lowing with a great flourish : I " I disavow, most unequivocally, now and for ever, any desire to interfere with the rights, or what is called the property, of the southern States." But this does not touch the question as it has been put to Mr Cass. We want to know Mr Fill more's opinion in regard to the extension of sla very in the territories. Let Mr Fillmore an swer the same question that Mr Cass has answer ed in his Nicholson letter. Qt5" Mr F. will not give any such answer. Brit to the votes: On the 7th of June, 1S41, in the House of Representatives, Mr Fillmore, (Chairman of the Committee of Ways and Means) voted to abolish the 21st rule, prohibiting the reception of abolition petitions. See Con. Globe page 27. On the 14th of June, 1841, he voted against re considering the above vote. (Mr Deberry of this State voted with him this time. See same, page 51. On the 15th of June, 1841, he again voted the same way. See same, page 56. (Mr Deberry voted against him.) On the 3d of Jan'y, 1S43, Mr F. voted to sus pend the rules of the House, that Mr Slade might introduce the abolition resolutions of the Legis lature of Vermont, praying the abolition of sla very in the District of Columbia. (Mr Deberry did not vote with him here.) In a few moments after the above vote, he again voted for a resolution " instructing the committee on territories to inquire into the ex pediency of repealing an act passed by the terri torial Legislature of Florida, to prevent the mi gration or-emigration of free negroes into said territory. See Cong. Globe, page 10G-7. (Mr Deberry voting against him.) Tier- u 1S41 . he voted asrainst lavine on the table, Mr Adams' motion to refer as. abolition petition to a select committee. January 1, 1S-12 he voted against laying on the table the subject of abolition petitions. On the 7th January, 1842, he voted the same way. On the l$th January, he voted the same way. On 21st January he voted the same way twice. , On the 2Sth Feby. IS 42, he voted not to receive a petition asking a dissolution of the Union ; while21 whigs and 3democrats voted to receive it ! This is a short and impartial record of Mr Fillmore's votes. Our readers can judge for themselves. We can find nothing that Mr Fill more has said which-would very fully convict him of abolitionisrtl. He has been very prudent in this respect, at all events. But it matters very little what his opinions are; if every democrat will prove true to himself, Mr Fillmore will never have the chance of giving the casting vote as Vice President. The demo crats have a large majority in this country, (the whigs can't deny this) and every democrat should vote for his principles. A MASON is writing a series of communica tions in the Pittsborough Communicator, advo cating the establishment of an institution for education, to be under the patronage of the Ma sons throughout the State. 3- The whigs of Raleigh, says the Register, have formed a " Rough and Ready Club." These are the same politicians that used to denounce " Clubs" as Jacobinical, and dangerous to liberty. The used to point to the days of Robespierre," and call the democrats all sorts of hard names. Thev lookedupon the "Hickory Clubs," in Jack son's day, with the greatest horror ! As a brother editor asks, " What is the price of consistency in the Taylor whig market ?" rrr 7f ri I I returns hi sincere thanks JOHN H. JIAJUJU to tho firemen and tbe public, fer their exertions in resetting hijr pwrty ftom lire yesterday. JU,y ' " THIRTIETH CONGRESS 1st SESSION. Jtw-c 19. In the Senate; to-day, Mr Webster presented the memorial of the committee of the Chicago convention, in favor of the adoption of a system of .internal improvements; andr on his motion, it was referred to a - select ; committee of five, to beappointed by the Chair Mr Hale presented a remonstrance of citizens ol Wisconsin against the projected railroad to the Pacific. On motion of Mr Dickinson, the Senate pro ceeded to consider the bill in relation to natura lization. Mr D. explained the bill, the object of which is to enable foreigners who apply for na turalization to obtain their papers in five years from the date of application, even though they may be, during the time, temporarily absent on business from the United States. The bill was read a third time and passed. On motion of Mr Pearce, the Senate took up the joint resolution authorizing and requiring the Postmaster General to renew the engagement formerly existing with the Potomac and Aquia creek steamboat, and the Fredericksburg and Richmond railroad companies, for the transporta tion of the great mail between the south and the north. Mr Bradbury offered an amendment, providing that upon the discontinuance of the route across the bay to Petersburg, the damages accruing therefrom, and from the discontinuance of the local mail between Washington and Richmond, be paid by the Potomac, Fredericksburg, and Richmond Steaboat and Railroad Company. The amendment was rejected, 19 to 27. Mr Cameron supported the resolution, as the best course that could be taken for the interests of the public and of the government, though disap proving of special legislation, and believing that the compensation to be paid was too high. Mr Allen opposed the resolution, and argued, that if we yielded now, the government would have to yield, on every occasion, to the demands of the railroads. Mr Pearce argued, in reply, that the sum pro posed to be paid for the railroad service was not exorbitant, nor inconsistent with the terms of the law of 1839. The dividends of the company had not exceeded three and a half per cent, per an num on the capital invested. Mr Allen offered an amendment providing that no damages which might accrue to the companies now carrying the mail shall be paid by the depart ment. The debate was continued by Mr Johnson of Georgia and others; when Mr Allen's amendment was rejected yeas 19, nays 27. The joint resolution was read a third time, and passed yeas 27, nays 19. Mr Dix gave notice that he would; to-morrow, call up the.bill to prohibit tbe importation of adulterated drugs and medicines. In the House, Mr Burt of South Carolina was called to the duties of the chair, during the in disposition of the Speaker, which was announced bylletter to Air Ashmun. On motion of Mr Stephens, (the rules being suspended for the purpose,) it was ordered that, hereafter, the regular hour for convening the House shall be 10 o'clock in the morning, unless otherwise prescribed. On motion of Mr Murphy, the bill to regulate the exchange with foreign countries of certain public documents and other publications of Con gress, (the consideration of which was temporari ly postponed last week) was taken up, and pass ed. This bill appropriates $2,000, to be placed at the disposal of the Committee on the Library, with power to appoint an agent to carry the ob ject into effect. On motion by Mr Gott, (the rules being sus pended,) the bill to regulate postage on newspa pers, and for other purposes, was taken out of the Committee of the Whole on the state of the Un ion, ordered to be engrossed, read a third time, and passed. . Juke 20. In the Senate to-day the Hon. Tho. Fitzgerald, appointed a senator from the State of Michigan, by the governor of that State, to fill the vacancy occasioned by the resignation of the Hon Lewis Cass, until the meeting of the legis lature of the State of Michigan, appeared, was qualified, and took his seat. The House bill to regulate the exchange of certain public documents and other publications of Congress was taken up, on motion of Mr Pearce, and was passed. Mr Pearce, from the Joint Committee on the Library, reported a joint resolution authorizing the presentation to the government of France of a series of the standard weights and measures of United States, and copies of several publications made by order of Congress; which was passed. On motion of Mr Dix, the Senate proceeded to consider the House bill to prohibit the impor tation of adulterated, and misnamed medi cines and drugs. Mr D. moved to substitute the bill lor the same purpose reported by the Com merce of the Senate. Mr Dickinson remarked that the bill belonged to a class of legislation-to which he was opposed. It was a proposition to bell the cat. Congress would find its arm too short to reach the evil. The result would be, that drugs would be import ed in an unadulterated form, and the compounds would be made by our own apothecaries. There would be no use in the law, unless it could be made to reach the apothecaries who compound them, the doctors who prescribe them," and the patients who take them, Mr Dix explained and advocated the bill, showing that it would check the use of domestic as well as foreign compounds. Mr Jefferson Davis, in supporting the bill, stat ed that the subject had attracted great attention in the west; and it was the general opinion in his State that the evil should be checked. Mr Davis of Massachusetts stated that we had the opinion of the most scientific and distinguish ed chemists that the law proposed would remedy what was acknowledged to a very serious evil. Mr Borland advocated the bill. His own long experience in tne practice oi memcine iuu, nc said, convinced him of the necessity of it. Mr Calhoun said, this attempt to remedy the evil would fail. The only remedy was to hold the vender liable. If we passed the bill, the pub lic would use the spurious drugs with less cau tion than ever; and if we rejected it, the States and city corporations would take up the subject and provide a remedy. , After some remarks from Mr Dix, the substi tute was adopted, and the bill, as . amended, was passed. 1 The Indian appropriation bill was again taken up; the question being on the amendment offered by Mr Bell to pay to the North Carolina Chero- THE IRISH.

Mr N. explained that the bill proposed to reduce the postage on letters to the uniform rate of three cents on any weight not exceeding half an ounce, ii prepaid, and five cents if not prepaid. On newspapers and pam phlets, the rate proposed was one cent per ounce, without regard to distance, and half a cent on newspapers sent to a distance not exceeding 50 miles from the place of publication, with a view to promote the circulation of the local papers. It was not the object of the committee to press the bill to a passage at this session, but to bring it to the distinct notice of the public, and pre pare for action upon it at the next session. Mr Niles went intp a view of the benefits resulting to Great Britain, in a moral, social and commer cial point of view, by the reduction of the rate of postage, and to the success of the experiment made in this country. Mr Mangum offered a resolution calling for in formation as to the proceedings of the court martial called in the case of Col. Paine, of the North Carolina regiment, and held at or near Buena Vista, in 1847, and the dishonorable dis charge of certain officers by the decision of that court; which was agreed to. In the House, the consideration of the national appropriation bill was resumed ; and being amended by-several material reductions in the items of appropriation, the bill was read a third time and passed. Oh motion by Mr Edwards, the Senate amend ments to the bill prohibiting the importation of adulterated, deteriorated, and misnamed medi cines, were taken up and concurred in. June 22. In the Senate, The resolution fix ing the daily hour of the meeting of the Senate, on and after Monday, at 11 o'clock, was taken up and agreed to. On motion of Mr Atchison, the Senate proceed to consider the joint resolution from the House, providing that the Vice President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House shall adjourn their respective houses on the" 17th day of July, at 12 o'clock. Mr Badger moved to amend the resolution by adding thereto the provision that the session shall commence on day of the month of , and that the business of the present ses sion De continued to the next in the same stage. MrB. moved to fill the blanks with the 1st Monday of November. Mr Atchison moved that tbe blanks be filled with the 3d Monday of October. Mr A. said if Congress adjourn on the 17th J uly, there would not be time in a session of nine ty days to despatch the necessary public busi ness. He thought that the next session ought to be one of five months. Mr Calhoun was satisfied, he said, that the Senate, as now organized, could do more business in one month than they could in the whole of the next session. It was unparliamentary and a dan gerous precedent for the Senate to continued its business over to the next session. It had never done. It would be vain to expect that the Senate would do any business if they returned here in in October. It would be in the midst of an ex cited election, and the existing administration would not take the responsibility of recommend ing any measure after the election. He was sa tisfied that little or no business would be done at the next session. He felt the depression of the hot weather as much as any one; but he would prefer to go on with the business now, meeting as early and remaining as long as any one. It would be exceedingly inconvenient for the south ern men to come here in October. It was the harvesting season, and the season when fevers prevail, rendering it desirable that they should be with their families. Mr Berrien replied and advocated the amendment. Mr Clayton advocated the measure, and pre ferred the first Monday of November as the day for the meeting of Congress. It had long been th ught desirable that the sessions should be in some manner equalized, by shortening the long sessions and lengthening the short sessions. Mr Bright suggested the 31st of July as the day for adjournment. In the House nothing was done but some very uninteresting talking. June 23, 1848. In the Senate, to-day, Mr Benton - presented the credentials- of the Hon. Henry Dodge, senator elect from the State oi Wisconsin. Mr Dodge was qualified and took his seat. Mr Niles, from the Committee on the Post Office and Post Roads, reported the House amend ments to the bill to provide for the transporta tion of the mail between the United States and foreign countries, recommending the concurrence of the Senate therein. The Senate agreed to the amendments, and so the bill is passed. After some discussion as to priority of busi ness; the Oregon bill was taken up and discussed, when its further consideration was postponed. In the House, an hour was occupied with the reception ot reports from the committee. Mr Goggin reported a bill to amend the post age law of 1845, by reducing letter postage to the uniform rate of 5 cts.; which was referred. The Senate joint resolution, authorizing the presentation to the government of France of a series of the standard weights and measures of the U. States embracing also certain books and documents to be presented upon the principle of international exchanges authorized by act of Congress was passed. The Senate joint resolution authorizing and requiring a renewal of the contract for carrying the mail from Washington city to Richmond, was read twice. ' Jvns 24. The resolution of Mr Hale, instruct ing the Committee on the District of Columbia to bring in a bill abolishing slaveryin said Dis trict, came up in its order. The question was taken by yeas and nays, with out debate, and decided in the negative yeas 6, nays 36 as follows : Yeas Messrs Clarke, Corwin, Davis of Mas sachusetts, Hale Miller, and Upham 6. In the House, some time was spent in personal explanations on the part of Mr Hunt -and Mr Cobb, of Georgia under the recent infliction of British tyranny up on an lnsn suDject, jonn iviitcneu, tor publish ing in his paper " treason" against the govern ment. These meetings continue to be held, and funds. are appropriated, speeches made, and pro positions offered, of various import. A meeting has been held in Charleston, and another in New Orleans. There is one reposition apparently entertain ed at those meetings, that cannot be acquiesced in by the American people: the proposition to fit out an expedition to the island ef Bermuda, for the purpose of liberating Mitchell. Any movement of that sort is calculated to disturb the peaceful relations of Great Britain and the United States. And it i.s very questionable whether the people of the U. States, foreigners or natives, should undertake to do that which the people cf Ireland would not undertake, even under all the excitement which must have been produced by the prosecution and conviction, and execution of the sentence. A convention of the friends of" free territory" was held at Columbus, Ohio, on th 22d June, 1848, at which, about 400 persons were said to be in attendance, besides spectators. They passed rank resolutions, declaring in favor of holding a National convention at Buffalo to nominate a "free soil candidate." It is " all in my eye." Qcf- It is stated in the Charleston Courier that good water has at last been found at a depth of 60 feet from the surface, byMr Welton, of Ala bama, Who bored on the Artesian principle, with cast iron tubes. We hope the Charlestonians have at last a means of putting an abundance of good water within every one's reach. - V . " GIVE US LIGHT! The Boston Atlas (whig) on hearing and seeing the dissatisfaction which Gen. Taylor's nomination gave, published the following editorial, to which we call the atten tion of the whigs in this section : "Let them the whigs learn, as they will learn if they will not be deaf and blind to the truth, that Gen. Taylor is a whig in priuciple ; is in favor of peace; opposed to all war; believes slavery to be a curse to the country, and desires its extermination; and is opposed to the further extension of slave territory." We democrats want light upon this subject! By what authority does the Boston Atlas thus speak for Gen. Taylor ? The Atlas must be a good whig paper, for our southern whig papers seem to feel a lively satisfaction that it advocates Gen. Taylor. Let us hear no more charges against Cass about tbe Wilmot proviso, until thia mystery is cleared up. "THE GOVERNMENT." We have main tained that it is proper to speak of the President and his cabinet as " the government." Some of our whig friends, and we believe also the Obser ver, have taken exception to it. They say that the President and his cabinet brought on the war with Mexico, and not the government." But in the resolutions of the whig meeting, pub lished on the 27th, we find ''the government" denounced as " corrupt, ruinous, and disorganiz ing." Of course, this does not mean the whig House of Representatives; and therefore, can on ly refer to the President and his cabinet. nfAirrifff!Ti.
