TO THE DEMOCRATS OF CUMBERLAND: COUNTY CONVENTION. A paper, numerously signed, recommending & County Convention for tbe nomi nation of candidates to represent Cumberland county in th next General Assembly of North Carolina, has been handed to us with a request that we make it known through the public press. It is recommended that th Convention beheld on Tues day of June Court, at 3 oVloclc. p. u.. at the Town Hall, and it is earnestly hoped that a general attendance of democrats from all quarters of the county will be had on the occasion.' THE INVASION OF CUBA: j The highly interesting details of th-s long f talked of expedition, will be found in another ; column, as communicated to the Charleston 1 Mercury.

Taylor has given great dissatisfaction to the whigs recently, by another one of his bungiiag attempts at statesmanhip. In a mes sage to congress in the early part of the session, he recommended that California be admitted, and that the territories should be let alone until their population should enable them to come in as States. After the report of the committee of 13 was received, it was supposed as a matter of course, that the plan of adjustment recommended by that cemmittee would be as acceptable to Pre sident Taylor as to any southern man. So gen eral was this impression, that the Republic (said to be the President's " organ") openly and deci dedly advocated the plan of the committee. This was looked upon, of course, as all right; but lo, and behold, in a very short time, the editors of the official organ resigned, and the new editor has enti relj' changed the scene: He has declar ed that the President still adheres to his plan, iLHtd considers it preferable to the plan of the cxsvnm it (:. This is a clue to one of the causes of the removal of the government editors. Another cause was that the editors and the cabinet did not agree. It is true the President has not said that he will veto the committee's plan, but he has thrown the whole influence of his station (which, how ever, is tantamount to nothing) against the mea soare; and at a time when there was no sort of necessity for him to obtrude his opinions upon congie.ss at all; but much necessity for him to Sceep quiet if he could say nothing of a concilia tor' character. Thisjackleg proceeding has roused Mr Clay; who spoke in the Senate on the 13th, mvery caustic terms of it. He said if the administra tion had iu the senate any friend who dared ad vocate its plan, he should like to meet him in the debate. He expressed great regret at the course the President thought proper to pursue. Every thing goes to prove to the whigs that " honesty is the best policy." But they never learn anything by experience. CENTRAL RAILROAD. The previous ad vices from the subscriptions to the Central Rail road, left $18,000 still lacking; but the last Greensborough Patriot gives the following state ment, which leaves no doubt that the whole amount is subscribed by this time: " The following is very near the "state of the case" as we are at present advised : Balance unsubscribed, as per Gov Morehead's last statement, $1S,500 Since subscribed, and 5 pr. ct. paid Guilford, 6,500 Rowan, (say,) 3,000 Mecklenburg, 2,000 Cabarrus, (sav) 1,000 12,500 6,000 Considering the fact that the only two Rail roads that have been built in the State, have proved almost dead losses to the stockholders, it is almost remarkable that any set of men should have been found in the State to risk their money in another. Yet the enterprising people of the west, who have for years patiently borne the evils of almost impassible roads to market, are going to put their shoulder to the wheel. Although many have doubts of the ability of that project to do what is expected of it; and although we should think much more favorably of it, and our indignation at the State's giving two millions to build it, would be greatly cooled, if it ran by our own door, yet we will have charity enougli to hope, if it should be built, that it may give them all the advantages its friends anticipate. ROBESON. It will be seen that Win McNeill, Jr., and Neill McNeill, Esq., have been named by thedemocrats of Robeson, as their candidates for the House of Commons. One is a farmer, and t lie other a lawyer. They are both worthy men; and from whit we euuld learn, among the people at Lumberton, on Monday, they will both be elected. The Whigs nominated John Gunn and Alex. II. Currie; but they probably were nominated without any idea of their being elected. But we shall see in August.

Strange was put in type, on our first page, we find one from Hon. Bedford Brown, (formerly the colleague of Judge Strange in the Senate) on the same subject. Mr Brown ys : " There is no point of honor involved, nor any question of interest, of sufficient magnitude which should stand in the way of its adoption." That is, the adoption of the compromise meas ures of the committee of 13. Mr E. I Lowe, has been nominated by the de mocrats of Maryland as their candidate for governor.

Mr Editor: The Raleigh Standard, in reply to Mr L. A. Gwyn, lays down fully, in your opin ion, the doctrine of the Democratic party of this Mate, as regards Internal Improvements by the j Legislature. If these are the doctrines of the j party, there has been a change so sudden that j the larger half are yet ignorant of it. i The action of the last Legislature is certainly j sustained by some of the most eminent individ- j uals in the democratic party, but their influence j 9 nvj, siiuiiiciiv iu urag aner mem ine wnoie rank and file. The majority does not approve of the appropriations made at the last session of the Legislature. The Standard has not given, in his answ er to Mr Gwyn, a faithful exposition of the feelings and sentiments of the party, nor in my opinion, what they ought to be. I belong to that class of politicians of whom the party expect nothing but votes, and who ex- ! pects nothing from their representatives in re turn, but to be let alone. If you cannot do us any good, do not do us any harm. We have al ways opposed excessive stretches of power by the Legislature, and the voting of enormous sums of money under any pretence whatever, and espe cially to sustain and build up the fortunes of Bankrupt Railroad Companies. Hence we were opposed to the voting of the credit of the State to sustain the Raleigh and Gaston and the Wil mington &. Raleigh Railroads; and we were oppos ed to the appropriation by the last legislature of $2,000,000 to build the Central Railroad. There is no doubt about the Legislature hav ing power to appropriate money for purposes of internal improvements, but expediency and com mon sense have imposed a barrier beyond which it would be to very imprudent to go. The De mocratic party think that the last Legislature did overstep this barrier; that the appropriation for internal improvements weie enormously large and beyond all precedent. The experi ence of other States who have borrowed larsre sums of money to carry out their gigantic schemes has been such that we are willing " to be behind the age." We have seen the people of those States impose such restrictions on the Legislature, that money cannot be borrowed on the public credit without recurrence to the bal lot box. where the voice of the tax-payers may be heatd. Who is going to resist to the death the appro priation of money by the Federal Government, because it destroys States' rights, and be ever ready to allow himself plundered, and his indi vidual rights destroyed by the State Legislature? The schemes brought before the last Legisla ture were by no means so obviously good, and so perfectly feasible, as to have induced members to rush headlong into the appropriations of most magnificent sums of other people's money without consulting them in the least. It is no kindness for the Legislature to do for an individual what he refuses to do for himself. We have been sad dled with the payment of a large subscription to internal improvement schemes that we are posi tively adverse to, and we are not to be called on by a gentleman soliciting perhaps our bonds, but by a tax-gatherer with an execution backed bythe whole authority of the State of North Carolina. Unfortunately, legislators rate the intelli gence of the class to which I belong, rather low; and consider our opinions as hardly worth care ing for, and feel perfectly content if they get what they call instructions,, from a few of the leaders, directing them to do exactly what they v ere already desirous of doing. The Standard thinks that extraordinary means are often re quired to procure the passage of good laws. Very true but sometimes these extraordinary means are rather too extraordinary. Where a large sum of money is to be obtained by special legislation for the construction of any great work that individuals are too prudent to take hold of, a party of interested persons inTfestthe Legislature, clothed with certain undefinable powers, and called lobby members, who com mence an agitation by which an immense excite ment is gotten up. Members think that the whole State is convulsed, and society shaken to its foundation, by which all old predudices are rooted out; that the views of their constituents have now undergone a complete change; that they are in the midst of a crisis; that the very eminence of their station is about to be their ruin; they have to exercise so much prudence their responsibility is perfectly awful. In con sideration of this mighty revolution, they vote exactly contrary to what were the known views and wishes of their constituents previously to the meeting of the Legislature, and the people are taxed heavily to build what they do not want built. After the adjournment, members find that this burst of patriotic sentiment this determin ation to make the Old North State a great State was a mere tempest in a tea-pot, confined to the purlieus of the Capitol. This astonishing revolution affected nobody but themselves the sensation did not extend to their constituents, the tax-payers ; the silecce among whom is per fectly terrific. Mr L. A. Gwyn is not alone in his glory; there will be a response from this part of the State some time or other. And I call the attention of the people to the fact, that some of the most eminent men in the State, who are favorable to internal improvements, are to be brought before them as candidates for the Legislature ; and as every body knows $3,000,000 is insufficient to build a railroad 200 miles long, through a rough country, further appropriations may be expected; and as the conditions imposed upon the Central Railroad Company were pretty stringent, we may expect to see them made easy. Perhaps new schemes will be brought forward, and more money appropriated. The democratic party, in my opinion, does not wish to have much of the credit of making large appropriations of public money for any purpose, and especially for railroads. The ghost of the Gaston road haunts the Legislature continually, and the thoughts of a $1,000,000 expended in the construction of a highway, to be on which is to be on the verge of tire grave, is entirely sufficient to keep the people from wanting another road exactly like it, at douoie tue cosi.. lours, c, JOHN SMITH. 7- We did intend to make reply to some of the remarks of John Smith, but wa have barely time to say that, what ever the diffesences of the democrats are upon the subject of Improvements by the State, and however much a por tion of the democrats may disapprove the Improvement measures of the last Legislator, we believe they would not now, if they could, repudiate those measures. We feel confident that it Ualmorta univeraal feeling of the people, to let those measure be fairly tested with what fa cilities have been afforded from the State, hut not to go one step beyond the aid already gire Such, we believe, will be the feeling of the candidates in this region of the Sta,te. and such will be the feeling of the Legislature . W would; not vote for candidates ef a different feeling.. For the North Carolinian:. PROGRESS. Mr Editor : A I took a stroll a few days ago to see an old friend of mine who lives in this county, a little distance off, I wa3 forcibly struck with the enterprise and harmony of the family, and thought, as I enjoyed my full of their hos pitality and friendship, how many are the silent pleasures of the honest farmer, who rises cheer fully to his labor. Look around and into his dwelling, where the scene of every man's happi ness lies. He has the same domestic endear ments as much joy and comfort in his children, and as flattering hopes ef their doing well, as you would perceive iu the most aristocratic station. And in general, I doubt not but if the true account of his joys and sufferings were to be balanced with those who are more affluent, that the conclusion would be little more than this: that the rich man had the more meat, but the poor man the better stomach the one the more luxury, more able physicians to attend anu set him to rights the other more health and soundness in his bones, and less occasion for their a lover of all improvements that offer any facility or advantage to the citizens of my native State and county, I readily accepted an invitation to see a combination of machinery which was just put in operation at Mr A. Mc Gregor's, by his enterprising son. It is that kind of a mill which has the cognomen of chisel saw. It revolves on a cylinder carried with ex traordinary velocity by bands; and I think after a thorough view of its different parts, 1 may say that it is a complete modification of the saw mill, if I may so speak, as we i.ow call galvanism a modification of electricity. The chief utility of this mill, is the very small quantity of water it takes to drive the machin ery, which is a grand consideration, and bids fair to bring it into extensive use in those parts where water power is scarce ; especially in our beautifully pine-clad country. The revolutions of the drum and cog wheels, and the continuous sound of the falling Water, awakens every mo ment the mind of the beholder, and makes him more attentive. It is built with the intention of sawing lumber for the Plank Road, as it is only about three miles distant. MONOS Murder dr ABimiP-rBisbop Sanson, B'uhop of -the JSwetles Colony, Henry County, Illinois, was shot dead on the 13th inst. bj a man named Root, who had a previous quarrel with the Bishop in rela tion to the wife of Root.'

In the Senate, after the usual number of aboli tion petitions had been presented, and some un important business transacted, a discussion took place in regard to the admission'of persons on the floor of the Senate other than members of the Senate. The result was that a committee of three was appointed to consider what rule should be adopted in regard thereto. Mr Yulee's resolution, calling upon the Presi dent for information in regard to our alledged revolutionary movement in Cuba, was then adopted. The bill to amend the laws in regard to pat ents, was then taken up and discussed till one o'clock, when the bill for the admission of Cali fornia, Sec, was taken up, and Mr Soule of La., spoke in reply to Messrs Clay -iv Downs. No question was taken on the subject. Friday, May 24. In the Senate, business of ageneral character occupied the morning hour. The Senate then took up the bill to establish a Branch mint in the city of New York. Mr Dickinson made an able speech in favor of the bill. He showed that the cost of coining $1 00 in gold, ranged from $2 23 to $9 47. He argued that there was great necessity for a branch mint at New York, becaue there was always more gold bullion, and foreign coin at New York than any other place in the country. Mr Benton offered an amendment establishing a branch, mint at San Francisco. Mr Pearce of Maryland opposed the bill, de claring his belief that there was no necessity for a branch at New York. It was demonstrated, he said, beyond a doubt, that the mint at Phila delphia could coin all the gold produced in this country. Another amendment was offered, proposing a branch mint at Charleston. After considerable discussion, the question was taken on the branch at Charleston, and it was rejected only 19 voting for it. Mr Benton's amendment was then lost by one vote. This gave the friends of the bill more hope, and it was suggested that with some modifications, it might succeed, so it was again postponed, and the Senate adjourned to Monday. Gen. Caleb Cushins was known to us earlier in life as a modest and unpretend ing tutor in Harvard College. He has run through various civil and political transformations since that time, and is operating in a new quarter. In connec tion with some other Eastern politicians, l e has got hold of vast possessions in Wisconsin, where he is establishing saw mills, and opening the country to settlers and civilization. This is putting one's talents to a better purpose than politics or political economy, two favorite pursuits of the redoubtable Mexican General. Osivego Commercial Times. ' A young lady, miW, polite, ami delicate, who sees in the advantages of birth, riches, wit, and beauty, nothing but incitement to virtue, is very certain of being beloved and esteemed by every body. An amiable woman gives to every thing she says an inexpressible grace; the more we hear, the more we wish to hear her. NEARER THE TRUTH. The Lo well Advertiser, in noticing the assertion that some of the factories in that city had stopped running because they conld'nt sell their goods, says: Some of the mills in Lowell are to be stopped to have their machinery repaired and improved, and some to substitute the Turbine for the old wheel. But not one, we think, on accountof a depression of the manufacturing buiness. v It says also that the owners intend getting rid of their foreign laborers to a great extent, and get back the American women ami men, whose rabor, after all, is cheapest on ac count of their greater skill. Murder. A poor widow woman named Rhoda Etherton, residing near Marion Court House, was barbarously murdered. on Friday last. The skull was fractun d by an axe, which was found in the yard of her dwelling. Suspicion had fallen upon a negro fellow belonging to a rentleinan in an adjoining District, but he had not as yet been arrested. Charleston Courier.
