When the committee had retired, there w as a call made for the Hon J C Dobbin, who apologized in a neat ami very appro priate manner by saying that this was a ineetinir held bv the people of Sampson tU-tt did not think that Cumberland John A should intrude, and that he much preferred ! appointed Secietaiies.

McMillan were ed in a neat, appropriate, and descriptive appointed to draft resolutions expressive manner, embracing the positions occupied of the Sense of the meeting. In the ab- L'nited I sence of the committee N. A. McLean Esq., being called on, addressed the meeting in eloquent and patriotic strains. He was followed by R. S. French. On motion it was resolved that a com mittee be appointed to wait on the Hon. J. C. Dobbin and request him to ad dress the meeting. Mr Dobbin readily responded to the call, and in an able and eloquent address, etichaiued his audience for an hour or more. The committee having returned, reported through their chairman, R. E. Troy, Esq, the following: resolutions which were unanimously adopted : Resolved, That notwithstanding the agitation of subjects throughout the whole country, cal culated to raise in the minds of friends of the Union the most anxious and serious reflections, we still have that confidence in the patriotism and liberality of our northern brethren, which induces us to hope that the awful crisis, with which our country is threatened, may be averted Resolved, That we believe that the dissolu tion of the Union of these States is fraught with the most dreadful consequences, and will in no way relieve us of annoyances and inconveniences to which we are subjected from the misguided and unpatriotic conduct of some northern fa natics. Resolved, That we believe that if the Union is dissolved, no human power can prevent the total annihilation of this Republic, and the utter ex tinction of the principles of liberty and equal rights throughout the world. Resolved, That though we entertain those sen timents of regard and attachment towards our fellow citizens of the northern States, jet we cannot consent to a sacrifice of our principles, or quietly submit to an encroachment upon our rights. Resolved, That we approve of the proposition to hold a Southern Rights Convention as the best means of uniting upon those measures, and pre senting to the people of the United States those views of the peculiar interests of the South, which will lead to such mutual concessions, and to such feelings of kindness and conciliation in every portion of the Republic, as will insuie the perpetuity of our country and her institutions. Resolved, 1 hat the chairman appoint tiny THEGREAT MEETING IN PHILADEL- j ' of hatred, and do they not manifestly threat, and treat it as the instrument by PHIA, which was advertised to lake place, on 22d, was held, and the resolutions of the occasion have reached us. The Pennsylvania!! says that great enthusiasm prevailed. All the resolutions are good, but as there is a long string of them, we must copy only such as are most important in the present issue, as follows : 1. Resolved, That the democratic -citizens of the city and county of Philadel phia, in this meeting assembled, in eom- by the two great sections of the States. The committee on resolution then re ported through their chairman, T. J. Mori sty, the following preamble and resolu tions: Whereas, the people of the non-slaveholding States have for many years manifested a total disregard for the constitutional rights of the South in their unjust and improper interference with the cherished rights of the people of the slaveholding States, and now seek by improper and unconstitutional legislation, to exclude the citizens of the slaveholding States from an equal and common enjoyment of the territory acquired by the treasure, blood, and life of the citizens of the slaveholding States in common with the citi zens of the non-slaveholding States, and still seem disposed to violate, not only the spirit, but the express provisions of the Constitution of the United States upon the subject of t-lavery; and whereas every freeman of the slaveholding States claims and possesses an equal and constitutional right to all the territory acquired by the govern ment of the U. S.; therefore we, the people of oampson, (without distinction of party,) in con vention assembled, do thus resolve, viz: Resolved, That every attempt to abolish sla very in the District of Columbia is a violation of those compromises in the Constitution of the United States upon which, and which alone, the federal compact could have been formed. Resolved, That every attempt to exclude sla very from the territories of the United States is a violation of the Constitutional rights of the slaveholding States, oppressive and unjust, and will be forever resisted. Resolved, That the anti-slavery resolve? of Vermont, and similar recent indications at the North, manifest decided hostility to the South, and loudly call upon every southern freeman to be prepared for the worst. Resolved, That we approve of holdingaSouth ern Convention at Nashville, '1 enn , on the first Monday in June next, and we recommend to the other counties in this Congressional District, to hold primary meetings and appoint delegates to the District Convention to be held in Wilming ton on the second Monday of .March, in order to appoint delegates to the before proposed South ern Convention. Resolved, That the crisis in our affairs de- moil with the almost unanimous people of the State, entertain a passionate affection for the Union. They can never forget that the Union, imbodying the spiiit and principles of the great struggle for Ameri can independence, had its birth in the bosom of this ancient city, the capital of this ancient Commonwealth; and by all glorious memories of the past, by the best interests of the present, and by the proud est hopes of the future, they are bound in deep, lasting, and devoted attachment to this, the noble and happy work of its wise, virtuous, and ever-to-be-venerated authors. G. Resolved, That the principle of the j Wiluiot Proviso is not a harmless political speculation or abstraction, excused, if erroneous, by its alleged philanthropic in tent, but is the same ancient, aristocratic, pernicious, and pestilent political heresy, ("ever repudiated and denounced by the democratic party of the Union,) which seeks, by means of an implication of power by Congress, gradually to undermine State sovereignty, destroy legislation -in the respective States, consolidate the Union, and establish on the ruins of State rights a central sovereignty, easily controlled or managed by the few at the expense of the many. T. Resolved, That it is contrary to the spirit in which the constitution of the Union was framed, and by which alone it can be perpetuated, to abolish by act of Congress the institution of slavery in the District of Columbia without the assent of the people thereof, a id the consent of the States which ceded the District tor the use of the government of the United States. 8. Resolved, That we call upon our State legislature to repeal all laws con flicting with that section of the constitu tion of the United States in regard to the restitution ot fugitive slaves, so that the fundamental obligation binding upon every citizen of the Union, and the law of Con gress passed to carry it into effect, may no longer be set at defiance, and the rights of our southern brethren trampled under foot. which they are to exemplify, and illustrate, their hostility by active oppression ?

Their companies were fully represented and they made a most formidable and commanding appearance. The procession was fully a mile long. When General Taylor appeared, he was received with repeated deafening shouts of enthusiastic applause. The hardy yeo manry gathered around the old hero, greet-in"- him most cordially. He was drawn in the procession in an open attached to which were four white horses. Wherever he there were shouts of welcome. The whole scene was beautiful and im- pressing beyond description. We had a slight fall of snow during the morning, but it soon passed off and the day became very pleasant. No accident occurred nor anything to mar the pleasures of tie occasion. Our city is yet full of strangers, and all is life and animation. Gen- Taylor reviewed the Cadets of Virginia, at the Military Institute in the morning. lie afterwards attended the military dinner, and will return to Wash ington to-morrow. He was very happy iu his conversational remarks, and won friends from his familiar, social, unosten tatious manner wherever he had the op portunity of making them. The ceremonies of laying the corner stone of the Monument to the memory of Washington, were highly imposing. The Governor, members of the Legislature, and the principal men of the State were pre sent, participating in the ceremonies. Business in our city was generally sus pended. The streets through which the procession passed were lined with a per fect mass ol human beings.

Resolved, That a copy of the preamble and re solutions of this meeting be forwarded by the Secretaries to our Senators and Representative in Congress. j On motion, the resolutions were separ- ! ately read. They were then discussed and ' unanimously adopted as a whole. T. J- Morisey being then called upon, proceeded to address the meeting in a cool, dispassionate, and appropriate manner, urging the South to take a firm and deci ded stand, as now was the. time, of all times, frr us to be unflinching and united. Mr W. K. Slocumb being called upon, proceeded to address the meeting with a spirit which should pervade the bosom of every southern slaveholder. There was a call upon upon .Mr Stephen E. Williams, to which he happily respond ed. Hon J. C. Dobbin being again called upon, responded with the feeling ol one who has his country's interest at heart. Heasked who dared to charge thisConven- tio-i with an attempt to dissolve the Union? He spurned the calumny ami hurled back the falsehood with defiance in the teeth of him who dared utter it. Warren Winslow, Esq, was also called upon, who arose and tendered an apology, as he supposed that the meeting was wearied already by the many addresses they had listened to, when he was cheered by cries of Go on, go on." He did go on in an able manner, enumerating the ma ny insults ami injuries icctived by the i-outh at the hands of some ol their north ern brethren; and in conclusion, saying that "action was the only thing that could -uvc us. Iet us say to our northern brethren: let us have our rights tempt us no i trther, lor the lion is aroused, and w o be to him -vho disturbs his lair." On. motion of L. F.

Se.vucii for Sir Joiix Fkankliv. A Washington correspondent of the Philadel phia North American writes; 'A liberal and praiseworthy proposi tion has been submitted to Secretary of the Navy, through Moses H Grinnell, esq., of New York, to equip and furnish two suitable vess'els for the prosecution of the search after Sir John Franklin, upon condition that the Government will lend its countenance to the noble enterprise, by appointing naval olncers to conduct the exploration. This otter is characteristic of the enlightened, high minded, and generous citizen with w hom it originates, ami is calculated to reflect honor upon that great commercial community in which he has so long and so deservedly occupied a distinguished place. The suggestion is received with favor, and I hope to be able to announce, at an early day, that it has been fully sanctioned by the President and the Cabinet.' An Abscosdext Minister. The Rich mond Republican, of the oih instant says : It was currently reported through'the city, on Sunday last, that the Rev. Joel W.Jones, who officiated at the Methodist chapel, on Oregon Hill, had left the city for "parts unknown," in consequence of certain disclosures compromising his in tegrity. The facts of the case, as we un derstand them, are that, owing to certain rumors from Syracuse, New York, (where he formerly resided,) the Methodist minis ters id this city applied to him for his credentials. Having none, he could not of course produce them, and on Saturday last he suddenly took his departure, leav ing his boarding and other bills unpaid. The report that he had taken w ith him the funds of the chapel, is, we are informed, untrue. He was engaged to be married to a lady of his congregation, and it is said that he already has two wives in the State of New York. From the Charleston Mercury. NEW YORK ANTISLAVERY RESOLUTIONS. While Mr Clay is talking of Compro mise and the preciousness of the Union, and Mr Dickinson, of New York,' is averr ing that the Northern people are not to be confounded with the small faction of Aboli tionists, and a few, a very few Southern presses are giving aid and comfort to the la'se prophets who cry peace! peace!'' when there is no peace, let us look at more authentic sources of instruction- than" all these. Let us see what the State of New York is doing. The Senate of that State some time since adopted unanimously a series of resolutions, which Mr Foote just ly characterised as demoniacal." They were adopted on Thursday of last week by the House- VVegive the resolves below, with the vote of that body on each one. 1. Resolved, That as the Federal Constitution was formed and adopted expressly to secure the blessings of liberty to the people of the Unit ed States and their posterity, therefore 'the Federal Government ought to relieve itself from all responsibility for the existence or con tinuance of slavery or the slave trade where ver it has the constitutional power over the subject; and our Senators in Congress are hereby instructed, and our Representatives are request ed, to use their best efforts to procure the passage of laws that will eflectually and forever uf an end to the slave trade in the District of Columbia. Adopted by ayes, 74; noes, 1G. 2. Resolved. That the determination indicated by the Governor's Messages, and the resolutions of the Legislatures of various of the slavehold inr States, and by the Representatives of such States in Congress, to extend domestic slavery over the territory acquired by the late treaty of peace with the Republic of Mexico, we feel bound to oppose, by all constitutional means, a no re cognising the constitutional power of Congress to prohibit, by positive enactment, the extension of slavery into free territory, our Senators in Congress are hereby instructed, and our Repre sentatives requested, to use their best efforts to insert such a positive prohibition into any law they muv pass for the government of the terri tory in question. Adopted by ayes, TO ; noes, 20. 3. Resolved, That our Senators in Congress be instructed, and our Representatives requested, to resist tirmly, and to the utmost of their ability, and by such positive legislation as may be neces sary, the extension of human slavery or the jurisdiction of Texas, over any part of New Mexico. Adopted by ajes 65 ; noes 24. 4. Resolved, That we have learned with great satisfaction that the People of California have adopted a constitution which is entirely in ac cordance with the spirit of the free institutions of our country; and our Senators in Congress are hereby instructed, and our Representatives requested, to aid in the passage of such laws as maybe necessary to admit tint State into the Union. Adopted by ayes 82 ; noes 1. 5. Resolved, That the people of this State are Wake County. At the late term ol Wake County Court, sixty-six Magistrates being iu attendance, the taxes on polls and real estate were laid as follows for the ensuing year. For County purposes, cents on every S'OO worth of real estate and 24j cents on each poll; lor Common School, 5 cents o.i every - $100 value of real estates and cents on every poll, ex cept free colored j for faris'i purposes, 5 cents on every 100 of real estate, and 1.5 cents on each poll. ' The Justices present by a large majority determined to have a Special Court for the future; when William H- Haywood, Jr. was elected Chairman of said Court, and Johnson Husbee, William R.

The Indians still continue their destruc tive incursions. Lately, however, they received two signal checks in the fcates ol Durango and New Leon, where the Mex icans attacked them and killed 34, rescu ing some prisoners and capturing a consid erable number of cattle. The Trait d'Union of the 26th ult. says that rumors were then in circulation that the charges brought against Santa Anna byr the Senator Gamboa, were to be imme diately submitted to a grand jury; that the voluntary exile of Kingston, Jam. ardently desires to return to his country; that his impatience is so great that he will not perhaps await the decision of Justice, but will take the country by surprise by unex pectedly disembarking; that his friends are actively employeu in nis interest ; mat a movement will burst forth at all points, &c. FROM TEXAS. By the arrival here yesterday of the steamship Galveston, Capt. Place, from Galveston the 15th inst., wehave received the Civilian, the News and the Journal to the 14th inclusive, with other papers from the interior of the State. The Houston Telegraph says : A portion of the books, field notes and papers belonging to the land oftice in Rusk county, were stolen and burnt on the 16th December. W. A. Hill was taken up charged with the commission of the act, and held to bail in the sum ol $5000. Great excitement prevailed among the citizens. A petition has been sent to Gov. Bell by the citizens of Goliad county, for pro tection against the Indians It says that without such protection the farmers on the San Antonio river will be unable to cultivate their farms this season ; it siys that the party of Indians who killed, near Refago, Major C- G. Bryant, were about thirty in number, armed with spears, and recommends the raising of a ranging com pa ny from that and the adjoining coun ties.

A dent of the Boston Atlas Paris, describes the following scene A strangi and ghostly spectacle came athwart our gay and busy streets, on the anniversary of the death of the Emperor Napoleon. The few remaining relics of that great army, sound and whole enough to walk, assembled beneath .the column of Place Vendome, and repaired in procession to the Invalides,to celebrate mass in honor of his name. 1 cannot describe to you the effect of the assemblage of withered spec tres, attired in the uniforms of the regi ments to which they had belonged. It seemed as if each had risen from the tomb, or the baltle-lield whereon they hail once been left, rotting in the sun or stiffening in the snow. The procession passed with out exciting the slightest enthusiasm; the crowd followed it in silence and in awe. The church was hung with black, and the places round the altar were received for the veterans of the Guard, of whom three-and-tvventy yet remain The celebrated Hulan, whose jaw was shot away in seek ing to place himself before the Emperor, in a skirmish in Russia, acted as sacritan. desirous of preserving inviolate the Federal i ant Ul3 Sler jaw-bone, freshly polished Union, and that thev will strenuously oppose all ! fur the occasion, shone and frlitl tereil in attempts under whatever pretence they may be j the sun, while Mameluke Fezdah, without made, to effect its dissolution. 1oc ; nna.--: r . . 4 . . . leSs a,ul n possession of but one eye. rvoupiet, unanimously. claimed the honor ot holdin- the chief taper.

The lower jaw was also fractured: in fact the ent're face a perfect W'reck. Dr. P. II. Wildman was immediately called in, and hopeless as tne case seemed, undertook an operation.

Let the reader look through this series of resolutions, sanctioning all the leading points of the Abolition doctrine, and ad mitting no possibility of compromise, no tolerance of the slightest concession, and then winding up by pledging the State to maintain th Union against all comers that is, in plain words, resolving to carry aggression to every extreme, and meet every attempt at resistance with the argu ment of armies and navies let him tike in, we say, all these resolves in one view, and ask himself what chance there is of honorably adjusting a dispute with sich men! Where can the beginning of settle ment be made ? What faith can there be. what permanence, in any compromise with A Singular Case. A somewhat sin gular case has just been tried before the Circuit Court of Orange county. It ap pears that some time ago the wife of Mr Ebenezer Seeley got a divorce from her husband, and subsequently married a law yer named Crosby. The first husband succeeded in setting aside the divorce on the ground of informality, or want of ju risdiction m the power that granted it, and then sued the second husband for improp er intercourse with his wife. The jury gave a verdict of $ 1 1 oo damages in favor Mississippi Wink. Mr J.
