TO THE DEMOCRATS OF CUMBERLAND: COUNTY CONVENTION. A paper, numerously aigned, recommending a County Convention for the nomi nation of candidates to reprefent Cumberland county in the next General Assembly of North Carolina, has been banded to ws with arewest that we stake it known through the public press. It is recommended that the Cvevtion he held on Tues day of June Court, at 3 o'clock, p. m.. at the Town Halt, and it is earnestly - hoped that a general attendance of democrats from all quarters of the county will be had oa the occasion." BANK OF FAYETTEVILLE. The stockholders of th Dank of FayttviU, held their first annual meeting on Monday last, 20th inst. Mr George McNeill was called to the Chair, and John Shaw appointed Secretary. The Report of the President and Directors was received, and was referred to a committee of three, who reported it correct, and highly fa vorable in a financial point of view. ted: James Kyle, H. L. Myrover, John D. Starr, T. S. Lutterloh, A. A. McKethan, John VV. Tearce, J. E. Hoyt, Charles Benbow and E.J. Lilly. We learn that the stockholders by almost un animous consent, directed that the commission ers close the Books of subscription on the first of September next. So that unless the subscrip tions at those places designated for Branches in crease sufficiently between this time and then, there will be tin Branches. Mr Starr was unanimously elected President, and all the other officers will be retained by the Board. The salarv of the President was raised from 500 to $500. ANOTHER SOURCE OF REVENUE. While our Legislators are looking around for subjects of taxation, to enable the State to make works of Internal Improvement, why do they not tax the article of READY MADE CLOTHING brought from the Northern States to our South em markets? Every year, thousands oj dollars are carried off from North' Carolina by men who come here for no other purpose than to make money and go back where they came from. Northern buggies and other articles are taxed, and we intend to see to it, that the next Legis lature shali be reminded to tax ready-made clothing. Some persons may be of opinion that the cloth ing sells cheap, and therefore it is a great benefit to the people generally ; but we are happy to find that the delusion is rapidly evaporating. We have had enough of buying ready-made clothes to satisfy us that we lose by the opera tion instead of gaining. And not only do non-residents bring such ar ticles here for sale, but our merchants are get ting into the trade. Now, what is the consequence of this trade ? Why a man can buy his clothes, as he thinks, cheap, when in fact he is paying very dear for them, because they are made like Peter Pindar's Razors,r sale, with the seams grinning like a Crocodile's mouth, and very often of a material that will tear like a sheet of paper. Then in addition to this, our dependent females are deprived of a natural means of making a vir tuous living. Their employment is thus taken from them the very bread is thus taken from their mouths, and they must live either in iniquity, or in a state of poverty below that of our slave population. Is this not true ? and is it not appalling as well as true ? And besides this deprivation of the females, our tailors are not encouraged. How can we have good tailors who can make good clothes, if they are not supported. And our merchants are injured: they lose the sale of all the materials of which these ready made clothes are made. And finally, our people are clothed in slop shop haberdashery, when they ought to be dress ed in the neat dry goods made by the delicate finders of our own females, and the science of our own Tailors. On our first page will be found a letter from Hon. Robert Strange, and G. J. McRee, dele gates from this district appointed to the Nash ville Convention. Their course as indicated in their letter, is universally approved, so far as we have heard.

The democrats of Nash county, held a meeting on the 11th, and appointed dele gates to the State Convention at Raleigh. They' expressed a preference for Hon. David S. Reid, but a willingness to go for any good democrat, and they will Consider any man a good democrat; (and none other) who will in the present crisis stand by and defend the constitutional rights of the Southj at all hazards, and to the last extre mity.

We learn from the Colonial Journal, that an expedition will sail from Baltimore for Liberia about the first of July. A LARGE FIRE occurred in Charleston, on Friday morning last, about 2 o'clock, on one of the wharves. The buildings and produce des troyed amounted to over $350,000.

We see by a letter from London that England baa been troubled with the same cold, backward, disagreeable weather this spring, that was experienced here. . MICHIGAN. At the election in Michigan, of delegates to revise the Constitution, a large ma jority of democrats are elected. 0O By a statement in the Aurora, it appears that over 900,000 feet of lumber have been sent from Wilmington to California, in 8 different vessels. - THE LAW OF ASSIGNMENT, Or what is Swindling ? We have been waiting for some time to get an opportunity to make some wholesome remarks upon the practice so common in our State, of making assignments. What we mean by an op portunity is, a time when no one had recently made an assignment, who would think we were pointing particularly at him. For we wish it to be understood that what we shall say now is intended against the law and the practice, and not for any particular person. By the law and the practice of this State, a man may incur debts to a large or small amount, and then either from actual necessity, or from fraudulent motives, by a deed of writing, convey the articles he has purchased, to some friend to be sold for the benefit of such credit ors as he may choose to faror. We say that the law is radically wrong ; be cause it does not give proper protection to the creditor; and because it appears to pre-suppose that both the assignor and the assignee will be honest; which has proved a great mistake in many cases. Such a law is as much a law to encourage swindling, as if it had been made with that avowed object. The assignee (the person to whom the goods are conveyed) is allowed a certain per centum for his trouble of settling up the affair. Instead of the law binding this assignee to diligently in quire into all the particulars of the debts and credits of the man who is to assign, it leaves him perfectly free to wink at the basest frauds. And the effect of it is to encourage fraud. We cannot, however, look up a man who, as assignee, will permit a fraudulent assignment, as any bet ter than the man wh makes it. They are both equally culpable ; and the law should punish both alike when detected. For, where the as signment is a large one, the per centum is an inducement to an avaricious man, (however re spectable otherwise he may be) to lend his name to a dishonest transaction. None but a man of well known integrity a man above suspicion even and besides perfectly disinterested should be .allowed to be an as signee; but the way the law works now, a man may conceive a fraudulent conveyance, and all he has to do is, to get an assignee no better than himself, and the thing is done; somebody is cheated. And such conduct is not only an evil so far as the immediate creditors of one man is concerned, it is corrupting public morals by the example. It is certainly very necessary that some such mode as the law of assignment shall exist, for the relief of really unfortunate debtors; but we venture to say that scarcely any law is more abused at the present day. And we believe that a great deal of this abuse arises first from the facilities of getting credit, and second from pub lic toleration of fraudulent assignments. It is one of the evils that should be remedied, and we hope our next Legislature will look in to it. We might write several columns upon the iniquities perpetrated under this law; but they are familiar to business men, and would only awaken " memories of the past," whose action on the pocket nerve would not be very agreeable. THE CUBA EXPEDITION. We have heard nothing from this enterprise since our last publication. The National Intel ligencer says that the President, has been in formed that an armed party of citizens, formida ble in numbers, are about to make an attack on the island, and in consequence thereof, he has ordered the home squadron to the vicinity of the island, to ascertain the facts, and if true, to preserve by armed interference, the amicable re lations between Spain and this country. fJCy- Query: has the President the right to in terfere? The New York Sun has the following pro gramme ot the movements of the " liberating army :" The Isle of Pines at which and Baracoa the men were to assemble, is a small island at the western end of Cuba, southern side. To reach it the patriots would have to run through the narrows between Cuba and Yucatan, where it was reported the Span ish government kept a constant lookout for them. The distance at this point be tween the two coasts is only 40 miles. The Island of Pines is celebrated for its quarries of beautiful marble. Here the Spanish government have a presidio, or state prison, where they send criminals. Here, too, they keep a garrison of 500 troops. The patriots calculated that the taking of this island would be an easy task, and were confident that both the small colony on this island and the garrison would join their standard. At any rate, they would disarm the garrison, and set them free up on parole. From Pinos, the entrance upon the main land would be very easv, and a small vic tory, at the former point, greatly aid their cause. Baracoa, the other point selected for sanding, is a small port at the eastern ex treme of Cuba. The object of landing here would be to make an easy conquest of the city of St. Jago de Cuba, the capital of the island. This city lies at the head ol a deep bay. and is defended only by a fortress, situated at the entrance to the harbor. These fortresses are some miles from the city somewhat like our Fort Hamilton. The design of the patriots was to land at Baracoa, and then march over to St. Jago, entering it in the rear of the tor tresses, and entirely beyond their reach. The address of Gen. Lopez to the army, and his circular to the Spanish army in Cuba, are also given. Methodist General Conference. The General Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, which sat at St. Louis, Mo., adjourned on the 16th inst., to meet at Columbus Ga., in May 1854. An act was passed for establishing a new Conference, called Western Virginia, to include all the territory in Virginia not included in the present Virginia, North Carolina, and Holstein Conferences. Dr Bascom, of Ky., was elected a Bishop, additional to the present number. The stations of Wilmington and Fayetteville were transferred from the South Carolina to the North Carolina Conference. Bishop Andrew presided over the General Con ference. The North Carolina Conference is now bounded by the Yadkin and Pedee Rivers and the State line to the ocean. ffU mington Chronicle. LYNCHED. A colored man and woman, who confessed that they murdered their mistress, near Liberty Landing, Missouri, were taken out and hung by the citizens. . In publishing the following article from the Stan dard, we mar say that we know Mr Dobbin's sentiment upon this subject ; and while himself and his friends and acquaintances in this section, highly appreciate the hon or of a connection of his name in such complimentary tt-rm?. with the office of GoYcrnor, it is the least of his desires to come into conflict with the claims or wishes of any other gentleman of his parly, in regard to that office. Indeed he feels that be would prefer that the Standard of his party should be placed in more efficient hands than his. From the N. C. Standard. CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR. Mr Editor: Permit me, sir, through your pa per, to say a few words to the Democratic Con vention, which' is to assemble to nominate a can didate for Governor. It is now pretty well ascer tained from different sources that Mr Manly will be renominated by the Whigs, in which con tingency it is generally conceded that the Democrats will have the Governor, provided they select a suitable champion. We say then, in the outset, let union and concord reign su preme, and whoever shall receive the recommen dation of the committee chosen from each county represented, which I believe is the usual way they are nominated,) let him be proclaimed as our leader. Without presuming to dictate to the Conven tion, or attempting to mar the prospects of any one of the many excellent Democrats who may desire the nomination, as an humble member of the party, we would suggest the name of the Hon. James C. Dobbin f Cumberland. And why do we suggest it? Because we believe him to be-the best qualified, the most popular, and the most meritorious of any Democrat who would accept of the nomination. He is an ardent defender of Southern rights, and if elected would steer the ship of State to her proper positions, and give vent to her true sentiments on the slavery question, which have been so grossly smothered ;nd misrepresented; and it would be a stern and desei ved rebuke to those who have preached submission. An Eastern man, he would receive the undivided support of his party in that section of the State, together with that of many Whigs, because it is a well known fact that dissatisfaction exists there on account of the claim of the east to the Gubernatorial chair having been so often disregarded. The ardent friend of the Central Road, the west would hail him as her benefactor, and her hard-fisted yeo manry would express their gratitude to him louder than with words by depositing their vote for him as their Chief Magistrate. Mr D's talents are of no common order. The powers ofhis eloquence would arouse the sloth ful of his party to exertion, and his wit and good humor would make converts ofhis opponents. When his clarion voice shall be heard in the West, the stronghold of Whiggery, .the Demo cracy would rally around him, and all their in fluence and exertions would be put forth to liberate their party from the shackles which have so long bound it, and which is destined to bind it longer unless some such champion as he shall come to the rescue. Now we have as good a chance of success as we ever will have again , for never will the Whig party suffer themselves again to be caught in such a precarious situation. Even now, certain Editors of their party, seeing the imminent danger which threatens them, cry for a violation of all precedent, and nail to their mast-heads the names of other candidates. But the Whig party, possessing that confidence which is the certain precursor of" defeat, will renomin ate the present incumbent, placing their only hope of success in the indiscretion of their op ponents. Beware now, oh disciples of Jefferson, lest you take a fatal step in this all-important nomination, which is soon to be made. No objection can possibly be urged against Mr Dobbin. He sustains an unblemished private character, and that he is a gentleman of the first order of talents no one will deny. He is also one of the ablest and most eloquent stump speakers in the State, and he possesses every quality to recommend him to the people. That the Democratic party in this State is in the minority is settled beyond all question, and de feat will certainly befal us unless some such man be brought forward. We have suggested the name of Mr Dobbin because we believe he carr ies with him every element of success. We now reiterate what we said before, that we do not wish to dictate to the Convention, and we here pledge our support to the -Democratic nominee, whoever he may be. Bat we sincerely believe that should Mr Dobbin receive . the nomination that he will be triumphantly elected, and Au gust's first day's sun will set on a redeemed and regenerated State. The news of our triumph in this stronghold of Whiggery would not only raise our drooping spirits here, but it would send a thrill of joy through the heart of every Demo crat from Maine, to the .Rio Grande, and it would carry dismay and terror to the heart of an Admin istration the most degrading and corrupt that ever came into power. All we ask is fair play. AN ORANGE DEMOCRAT. THIRTY-FIRST CONGRESS, v . . FIRST SESSION. Monday, May 13. The Senate nrorfrUncr-nf tn-rJav were eiven in a - j our last. In the House two speeches on the slavery question were made, which was the ' amount of the day's proceedings. j Tuesday, May 14. i In the Senate, the census bill, with the House amendments, was under consideration. A num ber of amendments were either rejected or adop ted, but the Senate adjourned without final ac tion on the bill. Wednesday. May IS. in the Senate, the bill for the admission of j California, as reported by the committee of 13, j being under consideration, Mr Douglass said he i desired to ascertain whether there was a majori ty of the Senators in favor of considering the bill reported by the committee of 13, or his (Mr Douglas') bill for the tdrnission of California separately without connection with any other question. In order to ascertain that point, he would more to lay upon the table the bill now j under consideration, as reported from the com mittee of 13. The question being taken, there were 24 for laying upon the table, and 28 against it. So MrDouglass was satisfied that a majority were in favor ofthe bill of the committee of 13. The bill of the committee was then taken under consideration, and an amendment offered by Mr Davis of Mississippi, was discussed all day with out taking the question. And in this way anoth er month or two will be consumed before any decision of the main question will be had. In the House, the business consisted of two speeches upon the slavery question. Thursday, May 10. In the Senate, the morning hour was occupied in discussing a bill to amend the patent laws. The bill to admit California as a State was then taken up, and several Senators gave notice of amendments which they intended to offer. Mr Foote addressed the Senate in favor ofthe bill generally, and the debate was continued by Messrs Yulee and Davis. At 3 o'clock, p. m., the further consideration ofthe subject was postponed to Monday, and the Senate adjourned to meet on Monday. In the House, considerable general busine s was done, but nothing of much importance to our readers. Friday, May 17. The Senate did not sit. In the House, a mess age was received from the Senate, stating that that body had appointed a committee of confer ence on the Census bill. The committee appointed to investigate the subject of the payment of interest on the Galphin claim, made their report to-day. The Report gives a history of the cleim and concludes with three resolutions declaring that the Galphin claim was not a just claim, notwithstanding it was paid by order of Congress. That the law directing the Secretary of the Treasury to pay the principal, did not authorize him to pay the interest. Hence it was paid without the author ity of law. Mr Brooks of New York, made a strong speech against the claim, and censured Mr Secretary Crawford for not acquainting the members of the Cabinet with the fact that he was interested in the claim ; and censured the other Secretaries for not looking into the merits of the claim be fore paying the interest. He said if they had done so, they would have concluded as he did, that neither the principal nor the interest should have been paid. Mr Burt said that no five members of the com mittee had been able to agree in the legal argu ments leading to the conclusions expressed in the resolutions. So that the minority report consisted of arguments upon the facts presented in the resolutions. One of the minority reports, signed by three members, declares that the payment of interest on the claim was without authority of law or usage ; and recommends that Congress pass a law prohibiting the payment of interest on any claim whatever, unless expressly directed by law. No action was taken on the report, and the subject was postponed until the 4th Tuesday in June. The House then adjourned to Monday. Monday, May 20. In the Senate, the committee of conference on the Census bill, reported that they had agreed upon a form in which the bill was to be reported to both Houses. Mr Yulee offered a resolution calling upon the President of the U. States for any information in his possession in regard to an alleged revolution ary movement in the island of Cuba. MrY. said he offered the resolution because he was surprised to see it stated in the morn ing papers, that the President of the U. States had sent a part of the Naval force of the coun try to that island to carry on war without the authority of Congress. What he means by car rying on war is, interfering by force of arms to prevent the armed expedition from landing. Mr Webster intimated that he had something to say on that resolution ; and accordingly it was laid over one day. The balance of the morning hour was taken up in debating a bill to amend the patent laws. The Senate then took up the bill to admit Cali fornia, and to establish territorial governments, &.c. Mr Clemens concluded his speech in oppo sition to some of the features of the bill, and Messrs. Foote and Turney made short speeches in favor ofthe bill. In the House, Mr Inge offered a resolution similar to Mr Yulee's in the Senate, in regard to Cuba, but being out of order was not received. The report ofthe committee appointed to ex amine the charges against the door-keeper of the House was read. It showed that the door keeper had kept his brother's name upon the pay roll for six months while he was absent hol ding another office, and drawing another salary from the government. The report was post poned without taking action on it. Mr Stephens of Georgia, offered a resolution fixing J5th July next, as the day for the adjourn ment of Congress, but being out of order was not received. Some debate then took place on the Galphin claim. Mr Toombs, of Georgia expressed his surprise that Mr Brooks should declare the claim unjust, and also impeach the patriotism of Mr Galphin during the revolution He Mr Toombs, contended that the claim was just. The only question was, who should pay it ? Mr Brooks replied re-asserting his opinions of its illegality. Mr Kaufman, of Texas, declared that he should introduce a resolution, directing the Judiciary Committee to report a bill to require suit to be brought against the parties who received the money for its recovery to the Treasury: that is the interest that had been paid, amounting to $1 91,352, being the interest on $4 3, 5 IS for 73 years. The committee of conference on the Census bill, reported that they had agreed upon the shape of the bill. JO- The Wilmington Commercial makes the following cutting rernarks on the course of the National Intelligencer on the slavery question. Coming as they do from an old and experienced pen, and a whit;, too, the rebuke is doubly and justly severe : SOUND PUBLIC SENTIMENT." The National Intelligencer considers it an evidence of sound public sentiment in Arkansas, because a democratic paper of that state had declared that the people are for the Union, if the Wilmot Proviso should be passed fifty times over." This may be the notion of the people there, but we should be sorry to see the experiment tried, because we believe it would be a very dangerous one. By the way, it seems to us as though the Intelligencer has per mitted its zeal for the Union to run into extremes. Extracts are made from south ern papers, accompanied with comments calculated to induce the belief that the main body of the people of the South are tor the Union, let the Northern people do as they ma v. In fact the course of the Intelligencer is such as almost invite the North to stand up to their anti-slavery no tions in the face of the Constitution. We are constrained to this remark from the impressions made on our own mind by the editorials ot that paper, a to their import. In this the Intelligencer does not present the true state of feelir.jj at the South. Whatever may be our personal desires or antipathies, a fair and candid exhibition ofthe whole truth, is the best and safest course for all concerned. ARRIVAL OF THE EUROPA. n ' Baltimore j May 21.
