Win H Bay lie Editor and Proprietor. FAYETTEVILL.E. X. C. DECEMBER 22. 1850- CORRECTION. We have to beg pardon of Mr J. C. Thomson for having incorrectly used hid name in connection with Mr Wetmore's, in our allusions to the temperance lecture. We have received a note from him, requesting th correction. We are glad that Mr Thomson so far disapproves of the conduct we censured, as to desire to be exculpated from it. The excul pation of Mr Thomson, however, makes it ne cessary for uj to fix it upon somebody else, as there was no mistake about the remarks being made by some one from among the audience ; and we now learn that We should have charged them upon Rev. Mr Jones. That gentleman is willing to bear the burthen of them. THE MILITARY OF FAYETTEVILLE Vol unteering for the war The Fayetteville Ob server, &fC. We are also called upon by A Member " of the "Independent Company" to make the ' amende honorable " for stating last week that some persons went into a private meeting of that Company to persuade the soldiers not to volun teer for the war. As Major John II. Cook was the commander of the company at the time, he has stated to us that we were misinformed. That no person ap peared before the company and addressed them. As Major Cook is an honorable gentleman, upon whose word we can rely, we cheerfully give the company (and others) the benefit of the denial. At the same time, we shall proceed to give the grounds upon which we based our remarks last Saturday : We can prove by respectable gentlemen of this town that it was reported that certain persons went before the meeting of the company and per suaded them not to volunteer. As we never be fore heard of its being contradicted, we took it for granted 'twas true. We did not intend, how ever, to include the Observer editor in that charge, though we inadvertently did, and now correct it. Kiice the denial of this, we have made further inquiries, and we can prove that officers of the Independent Company, being in a quandary as to their duty!) went to several of the retired members (whom we could name if so disposed) to ask their opinions about volunteering. These retired members advised them not to do if Two other gentlemen who were consulted on the mat ter, like patriots, told them they must do it or be disgraced. These things we have a gentle man of veracity to verify if necessary. Jow for the oft-repeated slander of the Observ ver, that zve volunteered and then backed out: Now what did the Rifle Company do? Did theT ask any body as to their duty? Not at all. They were organized as a volunteer company. When the United States and the State of North Carolina called for volunteers, did they hold a private meeting, with a sentinel at the door, ( this we also can verify,) to consider the propriety of volunteering? Not at all. They held a public meeting, where crowds of citizens were present, and saiv what was done. They at once, with a few exceptions, offered their services to the Gov ernor, and only numbering about thirty men, he told them when they had filled tiieir ranks to HI men they would be accepted. They then held jmblic meetings at the Town Hall, where crowds of citizens were present, who were addressed by t he officers, and called upon to come in and make up the company. Not only this, the officers es tablished a rendezvous at the Town Hall ; they printed and circulated handbills and made pub lication in the paper; they visited musters in the country; but such was the eflect of the evil advice from certain quarters, that the comple ment could not be raised, and the company aban doned the undertaking. For this they were ridiculed by certain per sons, just as the Fayetteville Observer ridicules the editor of the Carolinian. We tried to do something for our country, while he did almost every thing against it that he could do within the bounds of the law. We say it again, and the citizens of Fayette ville know it, that the columns of the Fayette ville Observer gave "a and comfort'''' to the enemy, wbile we were struggling to raise a vol unteer company in obedience to a call of the State. And we intend that this odium upon that paper shall go down to posterity, as far as we can send it. If we conduct the Carolinian a hundred years to come, we shall not cease to re mind moral traitors of their treason. TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. Cotton declined in New York since last steamer about one cent. Market weak. THE CAPE FEAR WORKS. We heard last week a report that a part of the works on the Cape Fear had given way before a freshet. On inquiry we were glad to learn that it was noth ing more than the displacement of some of the unfinished work, which was not secured. The damage, therefore, is but slight, and easily re paired. " DOG TYPES." This is the flash phrase for the beautiful pictures produced by the discovery of Daguerre. See Mr Wellman's advertisement. He has some fine pictures, including a landscape of part of Fayetteville and the surrounding heights. Unlike some artists, he is disposed to give a picture that will please, even if it takes several sittings. 03-The large travelling coop, which came here from the west last year, with fowls of all sorts, is in again with 3 or 400. The owner says that as soon as the plank road is finished, he can draw his cage with one horse and will furnish this market regularly with fowls. He lives in Randolph county. He is a perfect bird in the fowl way. STATE TREASURER. Daniel W. Courts, of Rockingham County, was yesterday elected Treasurer of North Carolina, vice Major Charles L. Hinton. the present faithful and respected incumbent, proscribed for opinion's sake! says the Register. Poor fellow. Robt. B. Rhett has been elected TJ S senator from S Carolina. AMENDMENTS TO THE CONSTITUTION. Position of affairs at Raleigh. The miserable deception which thewhigpres ses and leaders at Raleigh are practising is per fectly plain. They see that some of the members from the western part of the State are determin ed, if the question is opened at all, to have it done by convention; and in convention, the west will demand the distribution of the school fund, and also the basis of representation, on white population instead of the mixed. The democrat ic party and the eastern members, wish to avoid the opening of this question, because it is preg nant with bitter sectional difficulties at all timesand would be peculiarly lamentable at this time. Those who are really favorable to amend ment wish to do it in the mode pointed out by the Constitution, while those (the whig presses and leaders aforesaid) who wish no amendment, insist upon a convention (to which they know the other party will not agree.) And thus they expect to prevent any amendment. This w e believe to be the true state of affairs. MILITARY AND SCIENTIFIC SCHOOL. The reader will have seen that a move has been made by Dr. Thomas N. Cameron, the Senator from this county, in regard to a military and scientific School, to be established under the patronage of the State. We learn that the plan has its origin in Fayetteville, and that one of our enterprising citizens, Major John H. Cook, who takes great interest in all that relates to the military defences of the State, has liberally offer ed a donation of five acres of ground to the State for the establishment of such an institution, should it be determined upon. This site is im mediately on the Plank Road, about a mile and a half distant from town, n the direction of most of the summer residences of our citizens, and but a short distance from the U. S. Arsenal. A number of the States have already establish ed schools of this sort. South Carolina has two. The importance of such schools to a State, and their double importance to the southern States, in view of the aspect which our domestic relations have worn for some years, need not to be pointed out to an intelligent mind. Therefore we hope the Legislature will give the subject the consideration to which it is en titled; and if so, that body will not fail to take ?'mc steps towards establishing such an Institution. tyy- The artesian well, at Charleston, is still progressing. The boring has gone down to 952 feet, and do water yet ! THE LITERARY FUND. We have before us the report of the Literary Board to the Legislature. We should think that nobody could read the report without feeling indignant at the manner in which the fund has been squandered. Yes. sqandered ! A fund, the most sacred in the State the light and hope of the widow and the orphnn; raised and sett apart to enlighten the needy sons of the State, to make them guardians of liberty, has been squandered to an extent almost incredible, and entirely inconsistent with the honesty of, and an upright discharge of duty by, those persons to whose door lays the blame. The report says that in some of the counties much good is done by the distribution of the fund, while in a much larger number, it is be lieved the money is expended without effecting any substantial benefit; often lying in the hands of Superintendents or school committees ! Just look at this fact: "During the present year," says the report, " only seven Chairmen of the Hoard of Superintendents of the several counties, have complied with the law in making their returns to this Board, within the time pre scribed, and only 41 a little over one-half have reported at all !" " From an examination of these returns," s?ys the report, "it appears that there remains in the hands of the Chairmen of these counties from which returns have been received, an aggregate amount of the school fund of 90,083 ; and esti mating a like amount in the hands of those who have made no returns, and it gives )1S0,000 ly ing unemployed." Now, why is this money retained by superin tendents ? If it is received, and no use can be made of it for school purposes, why is it not returned? The Governor says: "Such a state of things requires an alteration; and it should be made the duty of some one to see that it is returned." Hence he recommends a gen eral Superintendent. If the Legislature of North Carolina adjourns without providing a remedy for these crying evils, it is utterly useless to have a Legislature. A way should be provided for making those Su perintendents who have received funds and made no returns, refund every cent they have received. The wrongs of the poor injured children cry aloud for it. The man who would rob an or phan of the money that js to educate it, is de- fjr- ded. LIND-I-ANA. Miss Jenny Lind sung to the people of Baltimore on the 10th, and following day; to the people of Washington on the lGth and following days, and was to give one concert in Richmond Va on the 20th, whence she was to proceed to Charleston and commence on2Gth. The Charleston boats from Wilmington are to run for half price, &5 the trip. The Baltimore Clipper say3 that on one even ing a crowd followed her from the Theatre to the Hotel, and insisted on her appearing at the window. She did so, and bowed there her thanks; in doing which she in the flurry, drop ped her handkerchief and a comfort for the neck. Some fortunate individual seized the handker chief and made off with it, but in the struggle for the comfort, the delicately textured article was torn into many pieces, each of which will no doubt be treasured by its possessor as a memento of the great songstress ! ! ONE FACT. The New York Herald, after giving the figures showing the somewhat re markable fact, that there are more free negroes in the slaveholding States than in the northern States, remarks The number of Tree negroes has, of course, much increased since 1840, but the relative proportion is nearly the same as it was then. Many of them in the South are owners of slaves, and raise their own cotton. In fact, their social standing much more agreeable in the southern States than it is in the northern. A windy abo litionist would give two dollars towards stealing a slave; but when he is stolen, he will not let him aspire any higher than cleaning his boots or whitewashing his store!" The figures, taken from the census of 1S40, show that there are 44,999 more free negroes south than in tht north and west ! 1 ! THE SOUTHERN QUESTION IN NORTH CAROLINA. The Committee of the Legislature of North Carolina, to whom was committed the subject of our domestic relations, have reported, as we announced last Week. As the majority of the committee made a report and the minority made another somewhat different; and one or two members made reports " on their own hook," it w ould take too much of our space and give the reader a surfeit of such matter, to publish them all, we shall only give the sftbstance of each ; and when the Legislature shall have adopted a platform of this sort, we shall present it to our readers verbatim et literatim, and they can stand on it or not, at their option. The Majority Report. This consists of a preamble and four resolu tions. They express attachment to the Union desire to preserve it slaveholding States have suffered great wrong by some of the acts of the last session of Congress, but will acquiesce in those acts as long as they are adhered to. Any attempt to obstruct the execution of the fugitive slave law, or to impair its efficiency, would " weaken the ties which bind together the States of the Union." If that would be all it would do, this resolution might as well have been left out. That the abolition of slaver' in the District of Columbia, or the interdiction of the trade be tween the States, or the repeal or essential modi fication of the fugitive slave law all of these would demand of the freemen of North Carolina the most determined resistance, &,c. That whenever all or any one of the before named acts shall have been committed by the federal government, the Governor is authorized to convene the General Assembly of the State to take said matter into consideration. That it is expedient to lay an ad valorem tax upon all articles the growth or manufacture of the non-slaveholding States, brought into this State for sale, in case the fugitive slave act shall not be complied with by the citizens of said State. The Minority Report Commences with a very long preamble, and closes with two resolutions. The preamble en ters more into general matters, however, and goes "round Robin Hood's barn" instead of tak ing the short cut. It takes the position and a very sensible one it is too that this is a govern ment in which the majority must rule 'that the majority are opposed to slavery and will never rest until they put it down, or are separated from it We believe with the minority, that he must be blind who does not see that such must be the result, sooner or later. The report advocates the right of secession, Under Unconstitutional and oppressive acts of J the general government. It advocates an amend ment of the Const if Ut ion of the U. States, in such a manner as to forever quiet the agitation of the slavery question. We are inclined to believe that no amendment that could be made could ef fect such an end. The resolutions assert what Mr Badger stout ly denies that the Constitution is a compact be tween the States. They a-sert boldly the right of secession under certain oppressive unconstitu tional acts of the general government, &c. &c. This ends the majority and minority reports. Next we have Mr Rayner's report, which differs from the other two in several important points, but recommends a Convention f the southern States under certain extreme circumstances, such as before enumerated. Mr Rayner makes a proposition which we highly approve of, because we think it would operate to the benefit of both the whites and the free negroes, to-wit: in case the southern States hold a convention, he would propose the passage of a law (preceded by an amendment of the con stitution) providing for the reduction to a state of slavery all the free negroes within the States, unless they would leave in a certain prescribed time. A law of this kind would relieve the country of that kind of population, and would force it to Liberia, where it would be in a far better condition. These are the subjects now under considera tion by the "concentrated wisdom" of North Carolina. To what conclusions they will finally come, is yet to be seen. THE SOUTHERN QUESTION IN SOUTH CAROLINA. The Charleston Courier of the 17th says: It will have been perceived from the report of the proceedings of the Legisla ture on Satunlay last, that theSenateof this State has taken prompt action on mat ters affecting our Federal relations. That branch ot the Legislature have, with a decision highly commendable, assumed the ground, that the times require a Con vention of the People to decide on the mode and measure of redress for the as saults that have been made on the Con stitution, violating the rights of the South. That the House of Representatives will follow the lead of the graver and more conservative body, there can hardly be a doubt. We cannot withhold our expression of gratification at this result. It is but the dictate of sound judgment, that in time of peril, where long established institutions are in danger of being broken up and cir cumstances warrant the delay, that the People, in their primary character, and in all the plenitude of their power, should be called on to express their will and deter initiation.'' THE SOUTHERN QUESTION IN GEORGIA. The Georgia Southern Rights Convention as sembled at Milledgeville onlOthinst., and was organized by the election of Hon. Thos. Spauld ing as President, who was chosen by acclamation; Hon. W. B. Wofford and A. J. Miller, Vice Pre sident, and R. S. Lanier Secretary. Appear ances indicate great unanimity. The Convention which assembled in Georgia recently, at the call of the Governor, to take in to consideration the domestic relations of the States, appointed a committee to take the sub ject into consideration, and the committee ha3 reported, It is needless to bore our readers with a sy nopsis of the arguments of this report, when they have already read so much on the subject. It is sufficient to say that th very essence of the report is contained in the last resolution of fire lines, to-wit : "That it is the deliberate opinion of this Convention, that upon the faithful execu tion of the Fugitive Slave Bill by the pro per authorities, depends the preservation of our much loved Union.'' - It was not necessary to have said another word. The time for argument has passed. It is useless to deny that the South is still in the position of the lamb-like boy who said to another that was hectoring over him "Now, see here you have thrown dirt on me and abused me, and ppit in my face, and knocked mv hat off' mv head, now I just dare you to strike me, and I'll give vou thunder"!!! Is that not a pretty picture? And is it not true ? When the Convention acts upon this report, we shall notice its action. RELIGIOUS EXCITEMENT IN ENGLAND Ear several weeks the foreign news has given j accounts ot great excitement in Great Britain, on account of a recent "bull" or edict of the Pope of Rome, in which edict, the Pope, we be lieve at the instance f Rev. Dr. Wiseman, a Catholic priest, determined to lay off" the king dom of Great Britain info diocesses, and appoint cardinals, bishops, &.c, as in this and other coun tries. This determination of the Pope immediately raised a storm, and the Protestants and Catholics are up to their eyes in excitement. Lord John Russel wrote a letter (which was published) to the bihop of London, in which he commented with much earnestness on the audacity which prompted the Pope thus to invade the domin ions of her Majesty, queen Victoria. The following extract which we take from the late foreign news, will show something of the extent of this religious furore : The Anti-Popery Excitement. The news from England generally possesses but very little interest. The No Popery cry, however, had lost but little of its in tensity yet the objects have become more distinctly defined. The town meeting in Liverpool on Wed nesday, the 20th ot'November, was a tre mendous gathering. A riot was anticipa ted, on account of a report that was in circulation that the Catholics were to attack the meeting. A very large police force was in attendance to prevent any disturbance, and the meeting passed off quietly. A great anti-popery meeting was also held at York on the 22d ult., at w hich the Earl of Fitz William moved an address to the Queen praying that her Majesty would maintain and preserve inviolate her su preme authority, as by law established by an unanimous vote. From Dublin, Birmingham, Lancashire and London, the Catholic clergy presented addresses of loyalty and attachment to the throne, and from nearly every town of note in England similar addresses have been presented by the Protestant population. All this excitement from such a cause, will beveiymuch of a mystery to a person in this country unacquainted with the laws of Great Britain on the subject. In free and enlightened America, where reason is left to combat error, no such excitement could be created. Every man here is left to worship God in his own way; but in Great Britain, where monarchy enslaves both body and soul, it used to be unlawful to worship except at the king's Church; which in that country, at present, is the Protestant, (it used to be the Catholic.) Therefore, in order to a better understanding of the secret of this excitement, We will enume rate some of the prohibitions put upon Catholics in that country. We will premise by saying that for a number of years back, the restrictions against Catholicity have been gradually loosened by enlightened public opinion, until at present they are confined to comparatively few to what they were 50 years ago or more. 1st. It is not lawful in Great Britain for any person to acknowledge the authority of the Pope, either spiritually or ecclesiastically ; that is as a divine teacher, or the head of a Church, because, in Great Britain the King or the Queen is the head of the Church. The Protestant Episcopal Church is there the Church, and all others are only tolerated, as a man will tolerate the toothache when he cannot get rid ofit. 2d. It is not lawful to bring into Great Britain any superstitious thing from the See or Church of Rome. Therefore the Rev. Dr. Wiseman must have laid himself liable to the law, when he promulgated the Pope's " bull," and carried to London the dress and fixtures of a cardinal. 3d. No Catholic Church is allowed a bell or steeple in Great Britain ! Whether the bell was prohibited for the purpose of facilitating the straying of the catholic sheep into strange pas tures, or whether the ringing disturbed the wor ship of others, we are at a loss to determine. 4th. Roman Catholics are excluded by law from holding any office of importance under the crown, &c, &.c. We venture to say, that not as many as one man in ten of the people of the U. States, know that such restrictions exist against catholics in Great Britain; and hence they would not be able to understand why the Pope's bull s hould kick up such adust in that little 6 by 9 kingdom. It would appear, too, to an unprejudiced mind; or rather to the mind of an American, (wnether catholic oi protestant) that the mere establish ment of a hierarchy, or church government in any country, would not be a cause of such intense excitement. For instance, the advent ofMor monism, under Joe Smith, in this country, did not produce any thing like it. The principal excitement produced here, was that of curiosity 4 Reason was left free to Combat the error and hence Mormonism made but little progress. But suppose the government had persecuted the Mormons, would they not probably have increas ed four fold more than they did? Nothing 9hows more clearly the great distance that America is ahead of the Old World in all that relates to the freedom of opinion, and the enlightenment of mankind. CtJ- Since the telegraphic account of the great tornado at the townof Cape Girardeau, on the upper Mississippi, which occurred on the 27th November last, we have received more full ac counts, confirming the telegraphic accounts (ex cept the cow being blown into the tree 60 feet high ; but the wind appears to have done things equally as incredible as that, on that awful oc casion.) We seldom read of such a destructive visitation of Providence by storm, even in regions of torn adoes. For the Carolinian. LOOK OUT FOR THE DECEIVER. A German by the name of Charles Ruf, a stone-cutter, came to Fayetteville last Spring, and practised a most outrageous act of villainy towards a worthy and enter prising female. After residing fn this place for a short time, being employed at the U. S. Arsenal, ! he courted and married a respectable and industrious widow lady named Eliza- j beth NeerzeU slsa German, Who, by frugal and economical habits, had maftaged to : save ten or twelve hundred dollars ffom her hard earnings. Ruf, after living with het about a month and a half, induced her funder a false pre tence of wishing to go to Philadelphia to buy stone or marble,) ttf let hirn have $700 of the money. He started about the last of August, with the money and several ar ticles that did not belong to him in his possession, promising to return in three weeks; but he has not yet returned, and is not likely to do so. When last heard from, he was in Baltimore, making false statements in regard to the money he had, and also stating that he was going to New York to meet his wife Qanother one who was coming from Germany. Said Rut is 31 years oUlj about 5 feet 7 or 8 inches high dark hair; pale blue eyes; long ears; stoops a little while walking, and speaks but very little English. Any information concerning him will be thank fully received, directed to Mrs Elizabeth Neetzel, Fayetteville, N. C. In order that the demands of justice may be satisfied, and the money recovered that this unfortunate woman had saved to sup port herself and orphan child, editors gen erally, and especially those in New York, are requested to copy or notice this statement. fJCy- The following article from the Boston At las, we are inclined to believe, is a hoax, got up for purposes best known to that paper : " Wm. G. Allen, a colored young man, law student in the office of Ellis Gray Loring, Esq, has been appoi nted to the professorship of Greek and Rhetoric in Central College, Mount Gran ville, New York. Mr Allen is afao well known as a lecturer upon the origin, literature, and probable destiny of the African race." SWAMP LANDS. According to the report of the Literary Board, these lands are still to tally unavailable to the State, Nobody will buy them; and a still greater expense in draining seems necessary to make them saleable. jtj- The steamer Knoxville blew up, just above New Orleans, on Tuesday, killing and wounding a number of persons. We have not seen the names. From the Wilmington Commercial. SECESSION AND NULLIFICATION. A declara tion of Gen Jackson is quoted by some Editors, that secession and nulli fication are the same; that both are treason able. The opinions ot distinguished politi cians are often as wide from the mark of common sense, as those of other persons. To nullify is to act in opposition to the con stituted authorities, while acknowledging their legal force under the Constitution; and this is treason. Secession is an act of sovereignty by which the compact is an nulled, by one of the contracting parties, on account of a violation of its conditions. There is no such thing as constitutional seccession; the ground of secession is that there is no constitution, because the char ter is broken, and therefore does not exist. The State has merged a part only of her sovereignty in a common stock of authori ty, and when this authority is abused or the conditions of the grant violated, she resumes her delegated trust; is a sov ereign State, and cannot commit trea son. This is common sense. We admit that this conclusion cannot be reached through the mazes of legal, technicalities and precedents; Why? Because not one of the former applies to the case in hand, any more that it would apply to the atmos phere of the moon and there are none of the latter on record that admit of the least application in the premises. This is an original question, and cannot be solved or explained through the musty folios that come down to us through the despotisms of ages, and under the influence of aristocrat ic and monarchical and imperial notions of liberty and equality and the rights of man.
