THE DEMOCRACY IN NEW YORK.
The great anti-Wilmot proviso meeting or the Democrats of New York city, was held at Tain many Hull, on last Saturday. The Hall was crowded to suffocation almost. The resolutions, among other things, declare that fugitive slaves should be restored to their owners, and the Constitution therein abided bv; (hat Congress has no power over the question of slavery in the States or Territories; that the Wilmot proviso is a wicked instrument of disap pointed politicians ; that the anti-slavery resolu tions recently passed by the Legislature few York merit unqualified Condemnation, aHd that they utterly misrepresent the sentiments of the people of the State. We fear this litter de claration is not exactly true. The namr of Martin Van BureO was saluted with groans deep and heavy. Letters of excel lent spirit were rejd from Messrs Dickinson and - Cass. We wish w e had room for those letters. We make the following extract from Gen. Cass': The evil day, if not upon us, is near us The attempt to force an obnoxious, and, and, as I believe, an unconstitutional and useless measure upon the South, has unit ed that great portion of the confederation together, as one man, to resist it. All other questions are absorbed by this j and if the contest goes on, all other parties will disappear, and there wilt be but one party, and that one will be a southern pat ty The feelings, the opinions, the in terests, the prejudices even, if you please, of a vast community like that, are neither to be lightly treated nor safely disregarded. Pride of character goes far with indivi duals ; and when positions are taken in period of excitement, they are not easily abandoned, unless the controversy is con ducted in a spirit of mutual conciliation. When men believe that important rights are assailed, the feeling of opposition is in structive, and history is full of proofs that they do not sit down soberly to count the cost before they prepare lor resist nice Wo have now a practical subject under discussion, to which fourteen States of this Union are opposed I may almost say as one man a degree of unanimit v never be fore presented in our own history, and rarely, indeed, in the hihry of any other country.

God grunt that it may be heard ami heeded ! What ever impressions may prevail elsewhere, I suppose there is no intelligent observer at the seat of government who is not serious ly disturbed at the present state of things. Whether the danger is greater or less, nearer or more remote, are questions about which men may differ, and undoubt edly do dill'er ; but 1 know no lover of his country who does not view the crisis as an alarming one, and does not see, in the signs of the times, the approach of one oi those political convulsions which, if not averted by wise and timely measures, may be fatal to us, and to the cause of freedom through out the world. It appears that the rowdies who prevented t lie meeting before, joined in this meeting, and sev eral of them addressed the crowd. New York is a great place ! MEETING IN BLADEN. At a Southern Rights Meeting held at Elizabeth e.wn nn th 4th inst. , a number From the Observer Mr Hale : Dear Sir I think it high time that some one should remind the pro per authorities of the very important matter of the citizens of Bladen being assembled, j Qr feiing the dead timber near the public on mntmn n.,i,l fowl's.

The object of the meeting was explained in an able manner by the President. On motion, the President appointed the following persons to draft resolutions for the action of the meeting, viz: Isaac Wright, T D S McDowell, Geo Cromartie, T J Norman, and K McLeod, Esqs. The committee having retired, upon a general call, Col J G McDugald addressed the meeting ably and eloquently for the space of one hour, to the satisfaction of all present, and was succeeded by Mr James Baker, who, in a neat and appropriate ad dress, defended our southern rights. The committee then returned, and re ported through their chaitman, Isaac Wright, Esq, the following resolutions, which, after an impressive and patriotic address from Mr Wright, were unanim ously adopted : Resolved, That we are Unionists in feeling and in sentiment, bv education and habit; that we rely on the Federal Government to secure our rights and redress our wrongs.

SUICIDE. Un ."aturday morning last, Mr Joseph ivioss, oi mis place, came to his death by ins own Mantis. It appear., that he had oeen drinking rather freely lor several days preceumg me commission ot the fatal act; mid that he had stolen a horse in this city, gone to Smittifield, stolen another hor,c, and returned. On Friday night, it is stat ed, he took a large quantity of laudanum, but it had no sensible ettect upon him. On Saturday morning, a writ being out tor him for horse-stealing, he made off with a double-barrelled gun towards the south eastern suburbs of the town; and soon after the report of the gun was heard, and he was found dead. It appears that he had pulled off his left boot, sat down, placed ihe muzzle of the gun to his mouth, and pulled the trigger with his great toe. The contents of the gun passed through the back part of his head, shivering his skull and scattering his brains in various direc tions Raleigh Standard. MEDICAL PROFESSION.

There has been great rejoic ing among the Abolitionists and their allies because the Governor of Florida expressed hi opposition to the Southern r".."u.n' s hence assumed 'ruia win not semf de, cwuiu ue more i.ll- Kesolved, That as American citizens, our pride of character and elevation of spirit forbids any discrimination to our prejudice equals in war we must be equals in peace. Resolved, That Congress should promptly es tablish territorial governments in California and New Mexico, opening to the enterprise of every State their immense resources. The climate. soil, and minerals yielding to every species of labor, would soon indicate the most profitable; and in no other way can this vexed question be so fairly settled. Resolved, That the eold region has excited a spirit of enterprise without a parallel, and drawn to California adventurers from every clime and country; unstaid by agricultural pursuits or fam ily ties, have h.istily formed a Constitution pro hibiting slavery, and now ask admission as a State. Are they entitled to it? You might as well assume that infancy is equal to all the re sponsibilities of manhocd. Rejtdved, Th.it the federal government holds California and New Mexico neither for the North nor South, but for the benefit f all the States. The position of California ami its gold, aie too momentous for hasty action. The ablest states man will require time to determine, when it re flects sufficiently the linage of this great family of States to become one of them. Resolved, That the South, when contrasted with the North, has been represented as the weaker party, and their magnanimity has been appealed to in our behalf. We prefer no claim we make no demand but what common honesty will sanction. What is legally and constitution ally ours they have no right to interrupt. Then cease to annoy u, or we cease to be friends. Resolved, That our domestic institutions, handed down to us by a wise and patriotic an cestry, guarantied by all the compromises of the Constitution, are our all, and whilst life con tinues we will never surrender them. Resolved, Th; .t if driven to extremes the out posts carried and the main citadel attacked the South will be found far from powerless. Her productions are more formidable than the largest armies. It has been remarked by a British wri terand we think truly that all the potentates of Europe, in battle array against Great Britain, could not injure her as much as the loss oi our Cotton. Resolved, That with nearly a half million of emigrants annually pouring into oui northern cities, poor, restless, and excitable, eager to bet ter their condition, with the Agrarian principle already deeply rooted, are our northern brethren sure an irruption will not ensue, more to l e dreaded than the insurrectionary spirit some are endeavoring to create? The smouldering fire is theie you cannot extinguish it. Cuard, then, your own domicils, and leave it to us to manage ours. Resolved, Tlut We solicit Congress to settle this family quarrel, unprovoked by us. As a na tion, we aie now prosperous. This very South, so wantonly assailed, is the fountain of the rich est stream that has ever flowed either in ancient ox modern times. It imparts freshness, life, and vigor to the North. Dry it up, your tonnage, factories, villages, towns and cities will rapidly decay, and you will be ground to powder with direct taxation. As brethren, we remind you tint the South has seaports accessible to all Eu rope; that our productions and domestic institu tions have been greatly enhanced in value from a false philanthropy elsewhere. The richest prize in the world, from the course of trade, though eccentric and oppressive to us, is now within your grasp. Will you foolishly let it go ? If you do, it is gone forever. Resolved, That we recommend the appoint ment of delegates to attend the District Conven tion at Wilmington the 11th in t. In accordance with the last resolution, the President appointed the following per sons delegates to attend the District Con vention at Wilmington: Is tnc Wright, T C Smith, Col A J Byrne, Col J G McDugald, Jno Smith.

As I was driving on the road yesterday, the wind high, I expected every moment the top of a dead pine would come upon my vehicle. It is very danger ous, and the overseers of roads have not done their duty towards man or beast in not cutting all such timber near and with in reach of the roads. Very recently, myelf and three other gentlemen riding on the public road leading to Fayetteville, came very near losing our lives; and what was worse, leaving four widows and orphans- It was a very narrow escape j but by leaping out of the buggy in which two of us were riding, and the horses takin fright, ran oft', or the whole would have been crushed. I am certain neither of us will ever forget it. I have now dis charged a duty lowed to myself and my fellow men, and leave it to the editors of the papers, and the proper authorities and persons to look to it All arc concerned. o: Mrs Farniiam and heji Party. Mrs Farnham has reported her sate arrival at San Francisco. In a letter home, she writes that those women who went out with her had immediate otters for employment on their arrival, at S75 and $100 per month. She adds. If there had been five hundred instead of five, they could all have engaged imme diately on similar terms. They must be got here in considerable numbers before society can take any shape or assume any character. I hope that while our good brethren at home are bestirring themselves kindly to send out churches anil clergy mei, they will not torget that the best all missionaries to such a population, are resolute, virtuous intelligent women. Letters have been received at Boston, from Capt. Winsor, of the ship Angelique, in which it is stated that Airs Farniiam left the ship at Valparaiso, purely of her own accord The following are said to be the circumstances under which she left: The captain states that, without his knowledge, she had taken on board a ChiJ- ian girl, while at that port, whom she hail coaxed away from one of the hotels Soon after, it was ascertained on shore that the girl was onboard the vessel without a pass port. The captain of the port immediately sent a message to Captain Winsor, desiring him to put the girl on shore. Captain insor iortnwith intormed Mrs rarnham that the girl must be sent on shore, to which she replied, that if the girl was sent. she fMrs F. ) should go also.- Captain W msor told her she could act her own pleasure about that, but that the ship was under way, and he should go to sea 'imme diately, and wait lor no one. Mrs tarn ham went on shore, leaving her children on board, and the Algelique went to sea with out her. The passengers, on arriving at San Fran cisco, signed and presented to Capt.

It affords us sincere gratification to an nounce to the friends of Internal Improve ment in this State, and elsewhere, that at the Convention held at Hillsborough last week, the Stock to the North Carolina Railroad was taken. We learn that the friends of the work, when they assembled at llillsbnrouiih. found that one hundred thousand dollars were stiil lacking; but ! before the Convention adjourned, this amount was made up by subscriptions from various quarters by Delegates in attend ance, and from citizens of Orange. It is now certain that this great work will be accomplished. Our citizens testified their joy at this event, on Saturday last, by the firing of cannon and other demonstrations. At night a procession was formed anil march ed successively to the residence of Gen. Saunders, Mr Boy Ian, Judge Cameron, antl Gov. Manly. Each of these gentle men, we learn, delivered brief addresses to the crowd, congratulating ihem on the happy results about to crown the labors of the friends of Internal Improvement. THE JEWS.

Subsequent advices by telegraph inform us that the amount ab stracted by Bulloch, is about one hundred thousand dollars, and that his bondsmen are liable for forty thousand dollars. The reserved fund of the Bank, it is said, is more than sufficient to cover the loss. An intimate friend of Bulloch is in jail on the suspicion of having aided in his escape.

The PhilJelphia Sun relates the following dis ease: A day or two since an accomplished young lady of this city, who was admired by a widespread circle of friends, died from the rupture of a blood vessel, induced by circumstances almost indescribably pain ful. It appears that a young gentleman (a widower had been paying his address to her for several months, and finally the day was set apart when the nup'ial ceremony was to take place. It appears, however, tlk.'it tllM willllUPI' Il-lfl rii-mnituil liiu li.-t wife, on her death bed, that he nevei !

Be he Jew, Christian, Mahometan, Brahmin. or of whatever other denomination, he is a noble and honorable man ; he has accom plished his mission on earth, and conform ed to the wdi of the Lord. consequently as the diverse religious opinions arc not detrimental to the prac tice of virtue, it is, therefore, a maxim with the Jews : That the virtuous of all other nations will b partakers of future bliss, and that the hour of resurrection is welcome to them as well as to the Jews." Every religion baseil upon the princi ples of virtu', morality, and humanity, leads to salvation. One- religion ma indeed be better adapted than another, to guide' to the paths of virtue, but no creed can be wholly devoid of every means oi obtaining virtue. Therefore. although Judaism considers itself an institution especially appropriated to promulgate true divinity, yet this axiom extends only so far as to a Hi r in that Judaism is meant as a signal, a beacon for all . nations, that the spirit it sends forth may effVct purity of morals around, and produce a love of vir tue abroad. Finally, as the Deity, inU his mani festations, aims otdy at the promotion of virtue, the Jews regard every religion which is essentially conducive to morality, although they do not subscribe to it, as a Divine institution. Tney also assume it to be their duty not only to refrain from disrespectfully sli"htiti:r the narticul.n J 3 o . new, probably, to greater part oi our readers. The Jews, it is remarked in the Asmonean, are frequently taunted by their enemies with the reproach, that considering themselves a . chosen people, they look down with contempt upon all other reli gious creeds, and upon those who maintain them. 1 his, the Jews assert, in reply, has no foundation in truth, and is, more over, in direct contradiction to the history anil dogmas of their religion. According to the exposition of their doctrines, given in this publication, the Jews, so far from being under the influence of biiiotrv and an exclusive spirit; are in fact among the most tolerant of all religionists, both in theory and practice. We cite the follow ing fundamental principles of modern Judaism, as they are stated in the publica tion before us; they certainly display a liberality and enlarged spirit quite at vari ance with the notions commonly entertain ed of the religious belief of these people. The universal dignity of mankind, and the consequent dut of practising kind ness towards all the human race have been taught by the enlightened Jewish divines of all times, not excepting even the mid dle ages, w hich were so persecuting to the Jews. Every person who confesses a belief founded upon morality, be the same even (like the Christian or Mahometan religion essentially dissimilar to the Jewish, ought, neverthless, to be treated in every respect like a true and real Israelite. It is virtue only in which chiefly, the Lord takes delight, and which, in reality, enables a man without reference to birth, creed, fortune or station. Therefore," says a celebrated teacher of the Talmud, I call upon heaven and earth as wit nesses to the verity, that be a man Jew or Gentile, in proportion to his acquired sense of virtue, he is inspired by the holy spirit of the Lord." Worthiness and goodness do not ne cessarily require the confession of the Jew ish religi mi, but are solely dependent oil a rijridiy virtuous career oi lite. l ae heathen who observes the law, that is, who lives virtuously, is co-equal with the High Priest.
