NORTH CAROLINIAN. - - - . . . . Wm II. Baiync9 Kditor and Proprietor FAYETTEVILLE, JT. C. BSCEZtlBSZl S, 1040. WHICH IS RIGHT? 8,552 or 8,581 ? The Governor's proclamation say9 that the Taylor electoral ticket received 43,-121 votes; and the Cass ticket 34.SG9. And all the news papers of the State, except the North Carolinian, have set down the majority at 8,5S1 ; but subtract the lesser from the greater, and the majority is 8,552. We claim, according to the Governor's proclamation, that 8,552 is the correct majority; and it is a little singular, that while the columns of all the papers fot up in accordance with the Governor's proclamation, they have all made an error of 29 votes in subtracting. The error origi nated in the Raleigh papers, and has never been corrected. If the 31 majority in Yancy county was not in cluded in the Governor's proclamation, add it to 8,551, and it makes 8,5S3, still making a discrep ancy of two yotes, as compared with the majori ty of 8,531 These errors are more annoying to people at a distance than to home folks. N. C. LEGISLATURE. S. C. BANKS. A writer in the Charleston Mercury says that all the Banks in that State have taken to dealing in exchange, and no man, not a favorite, can get a note discounted. According to accounts, the Banks in North Carolina are not discounting either. Every body complains of the scarcity of money; and those who are wont to look to the Banks for their sup ply of the article, very often have to do without it. RIGHTS OF THE PEOPLE. We are glad to sea in South Carolina, a grow ing disposition among the people in favor of giv ing the election of President and Vice President directly to the people, instead of the present mode of election by the Legislature.

We copy a paragraph, because it is written after our own heart: From the Columbia South Carolinian. By the present system, the Legislature votes lor President and Vice President of the U States; elects the Governor and Lt. Governor of the State of S. Carolina, and the Judiciary; it elect3 the Treasurers ; the Comptroller General; the President and Directors of the Bank of the State, and various other public functionaries, who, it is admitted on all hands, are or should be the aents of the people alone, and not of the legislaturethe mere shallow oi me neonle's power, and which has no preroga tive whatever, but what the people give it. Now it is maintained by others, and we maintain, that the legitimate and sole pro per business of the legislature is to make laws, and not to elect public officers, other than the officers belonging to the two Houses of the legislature. The legislature is emphatically the law making power and nothing more. That is the whole extent of the meaning of the term legislature; a body of men whose business it is to make laws. The elective franchise belongs in a pre-eminent degree, to the people; it is their great privilege, and legislatures, pro perly speaking, have nothing to do witn it. i he people, if they had their rights, should elect all the o fficers just named. They are their agents; responsible to them alone for their conduct, and they ought to be elected bv them. This may be "called latitudinarian doctrine pure radicalism; but while we take this position, we are prepared to de fend it; and we consider it susceptible of a manly, sensible and unanswerable defence NOW RECEIVING A new supply of Almonds.

Mr Hicks presented a bill for the relief of witnesses in Law suits, removed from one County to another. Referred to the committee on the Judiciary. Mr Ellis, of Rowan, presented a bill to incorporate the Town of Salisbury. Re ferred to the committee on private bills Mr Courts, ot Rockingham, presented a report from the committee on propositions and Grievances, recommending the passage Stokes " "Cobnry o'nts uit W . Stokes, and the other Forsyth County. Mr Stanly objected to the name proposed for one of the two counties. He thought there were many sons of North Carolina, whom we had never honored , whose names might appropriately be given to Counties, and was opposed to going out of the State to find names. Why, he asked, should we go to Georgia after a name to give a County of North Carolina ? At this point of Mr S.'g remarks, Mr Courts arose and said that the name propos ed, was that of a son of North Carolina of one who gallantly fought in the last war with great Britain, and fell upon our North ern frontier. Mr Stanly then moved an amendment, by "inserting this in the Preamble. Mr Steele of Richmond, was not disposed to vote on the bill until he had heard an explanation of the reasons for division. He hoped that some friend of the bill would set forth before the House their ob ject for desiring its passage. Mr Ellis, of Rowan, presented certain reasons which the Reporter did not dis tinctly hear. Mr'Satterthwaite, of Pitt, as one of the committee to whom the bill had been re ferred, went at some length into the rea sons that influenced his support of the bill. He said he knew there wa3 a jealousy on the part of the East, in regard to the divi sion of theIarge counties of the West, arising from the fear that the representation of that part of the State would be greatly increased thereby. But in the present case there netd be no fear, for he believed there would be no increase of strength. The county of Stokes having at present three Commoners, would, in all probability, by the proposed division, have only two that part to be called the county of Stokes one, and that part to be called the county of Forsyth one. A strong reason, said Mr S., why the bill ought to pass, is, that the memorial is signed by over a thousand re spectable citizens, and the fact that the di vision of the county was made a test ques tion in the August elections, and was fair ly decided by a majority of the votes. The citizens of the county complained of being burdened, aud they ought to be relieved. If the count v, as it now stands, oe a griev ance, the bill ought to pass; and he for one was alwavs ready to relieve the people of a burden," no matter from what quarter the petition for relief might come. On motion of Mr Keene of Rockingham, the memorial was read, and the bill passed its second reading. Mr Williamson of Columbus, presented a bill in relation to entries on vacant lands Referred to the Judiciary Committee. Mr Biggs of Bertie, presented a bill to incorporate the Bertie Guards. Thursday, Nov. 30. SENATE. A message was received from the House of Commons announcing various Joint Qolmj.

Mr Rowland introduced a bill to estaU lish Lumbertan Academy in the County of Robeson, and to incorporate the Trustees thereof; which passed its first reading and was referred to the Committee on Educa tion. Mr Gilmer moved that a message ho sent to the House of Commons, proposing that the two Houses, on Tuesday next at 12 o'clock, proceed to the election oft U. S. Senator. Mr Ashe moved to amend by postponing the election until the 30tl of December, to allow the member, who, may be elected in Yancy time to take his, seat.
