p. From the Wilmington Journal. THE PUBLIC LAiNDS. A- recent article in the Washington Union commences with the assertion of a fact, which appears to our judgment in controvertible, namrl) : That unless all the i;;n$' fail the democracy in this coun try can only be defeated by t lie democracy. It's policy has been approved of by the country, It has been tested, and the people are prospeious more so than at anv former period while the immense preponderance which the democratic party Lave achieved in every section of the con federacy, gives tangible evidence of the public confidence in those distinctive tenets under which the party who support ed General Pierce, fought and triumphed, and presents no reasonable prospect, to the vision of even I lie warmest parli'.an of opposition, for any general revival of 'Whig measures. Few, if any, of our Whig Iriends wish lor such a consummation none, we believe, expect it. If then, any -danger should threaten the permanency of the present state of things,, it must arise from the existence of something like schism in the ranks of the Democratic party itself, produced by the adoption or avowal by smile of its members of principles or systems i'f policy at variance with those under which the nutted Democracy advanced to, and achieved its present unquestioned pre uinence. Some, ofardent temperament, may. perhaps, he so deeply embued with the progressive spirit of the age, as to be lieve that even principles themselves change; and beguiled by a plausible theory, or seduced by the prospect of tem porary advantage, b willing to abandon a poition of the platform, and ignore one of the principles re-established and re-affirmed by the united party, no longer ago than the first week in the June of 1852, at the National Convention which assembled in liultimore, and who-.e deliberations result ed in the nomination of General Pierce and in the adoption of a platform of principle-;, one of the resolutions of which uiiirms that the proceeds of the public IiimIs oiiht lobe sacredly applied to the objects specified in the constitution : and that u e are opposed to any law for the distribution of such proceeds among the" .Mates, as alike inexpedient in policy and repugnant to the constitution. In the con vention which adopted these resolutions, North Carolina was fully and ably repre sented, as she was also in the rnmmittei- which framed them, and neither public statement nor private information has yet reached us of any dissent at that time, either in convention or in committee. To these resolutions, the one relating to Pub lic Lands included, General Pierce replied, givingthe fullest assent both ol'his judgment and his leeln gs, and from stump to stump, wherever Democrats were assembled or political discussions held during the cam paign, they were avowed and defended, throughout the length ami breadth of the land. That campaign has closed but little over six mouths, and no official communi cation has yet been received from the ad ministration to which the popular will con fided the executive department of the gov ernment lor four years, from and after the 4th of March, 1833. Apart from the prin ciple involved ; apart, too, from our own lull committal to that principle, how can we consistently agitate for ' the abandon ment of a plank of the very platform upon ivhich we placed our nominee, ami upon which we elected him ? How cart we, upon cool rellection, deliberately elevate a man to office as the exponent of certain principles, and then, before lie is warm in hi.i chair, attack these very principles, to which we are equally pledged with the Presidentelect? Such, however, would be the position of the Democrats of North Carolina, should they, or any important portion of the in, impelled by an idea of very rapid progress, go now for a distribu tion of the proceeds of the public lands, after having, through their representatives at lialtimoie, deliberately approved of a resolution in which such distribution is st'gmatised as a!ike iuexnedient in notirv and repugnant to Wits done within , t. the constitution. This the year,- their votinsi lor and helping to elect General Pierce, upon this same issue, dates back no tarther than November last. Although the largest portion of the lands at present constituting the public domain, consists of our new acquisitions, yet the bisis ol that domain is unquestionably the territory ceded at different times previous to the formation of our present Constitu tion, by the States of Massachusetts, New York. Virginia, North and South Carolina and Georgia. These States ceded their lands for the purpose of general harmony, and to defray the expenses of the Revolutionary war. Various leasons might be assigned whv sue ) cession should have been considered essential to harmony, the chief of which might, perhaps, be set down as a desire to avoid luture collisions between different owners, by a merger in one common pro prietor, and under one common manage ment, and a growing jealousy of the almost illimitable territories of Virginia, which, if retained and grown up to, would have seriously endangered the independence and equality of the other States. How illy the sacrifices of Virginia have been re quited, it is not necessary, in this connec tion, to say. The territory ceded by the other Southern States, has now turned against the section by which it was ceded. Al the commencement of the Government, in us youth and weakness, this domain was regmled, and justly, too, as the back bonot the national credit, and is placed by the Constitution, under the control of Congress, which has power to dispose of, and make all needful rulos and regulations respecting the territory or other property of the United States.

It is a fact universally conceded, that Beaufort is a place of the utmost impor tance to the future well-being of North Carolina. As Beaufort increases, so also must the prosperity of the State increase. The many advantages attending its situa tion, the safety and convenience of its harbor the salubrity of its climate all point to Beaufort as the place tu which the attention of North Carolinians should be directed.. Connect it intimately by means of Internal improvements with the other portions of the State, and we ask where was there ever a place, with -better pros pects of becoming a great city? e deem it highly important to present continually the condition of the harbor of j Beaufort, to the view of all the citizens of the State. And with this object, we pub lish the following extract from a speech, delivered some time since, by Dr Arren dell, the Senator from Carteret: "For the last one hundred years the harbor of Beaufort has been gradually im proving, with the exception of the years 1812 to 1815 inclusive; when, from some unaccountable cause, the bar was not so good as it had been, by some 2 or 3 feet. Since that time however as stated before, it has been progressively improving, and it now has 19s feet of water at lowtide neap. Shipments, in the largest class of vessels, have actually been made by some of our citizens, direct to Liverpool from Beaufort. While we have a sufficiency of water at this bar to admit the largest class of merchant vessels, it is one of the safest harbors on the Atlantic coast. No storm it matters not how furious has ever driven a vessel ashore so as to injure her seriously in this harbor a fact which, I venture to sav, can be stated in favor of but very few, if any, of the other ha:bors on the Atlantic coast. It can be entered with the wind from all points of the com pass, except North West and at ebb tide. Beaufort is, also, one of the healthiest towns in the whole southern country, and is becoming to be one of the most fashiona ble places for summer resort in the State. At, the juncture of the North and New Port rivers, it presents you with an unob structed view of the ocean, about 1 h miles distant, where you may enjoy its fine breezes and lave in its invigorating waters. 1 With all these advantaged, what is to keep ii n oiii uecoming ui innately a greai eny a city worthy the character of the Old North State? I answer nothing, if thvi resolutions under consideration are car ried out! Unite the Kast and West by means of the great Central Railroad; and my word for it, a new era will dawn on this State. We will thereby givt: her a healthful circulation both sections will become one in interest and identity then will cease the ancient bickerings of East ern interest and Western interest; and we will all go in heart and soul, for the com mon interests of the State." GOLD FEVER IN TEXAS. The Austin State Gazette has the follow ing upon the subject: A considerable excitement is now pre vailing throughout Western Texas on the subject of the gold discoveries in our neighborhood : and we have had several letters, and observe notices, in our ex changes, asking information on the subject. That there is gold, and in great quantities, on the tributaries of the Colorado, a short distance above this city, we can no longer entertain a doubt, for some specimens shown us are of the most beautiful char acter. We understand, upon good authori ty, that one specimen has been found with S24 worth of gold. This report we have no hesitation in crediting, as it was brought by a gentleman of undoubted veracity. The number of persons now at the mines is very considerable, set down by reports at from 200 to 500, most of whom are greatly encouraged by their success. Per sons are Hocking into the mining districts from all parts of the country, anil we shall not be surprised to hear soon of discoveries equalling in importance the golden stories ol California.

In Pownal, on 5th inst., fas we learn from the Mirror,) Oren Cutter, (16 years of age, son of Reuben Cutter.

Though suffering much pain, the lad was able to walk home and after some external application, retired for the night, his friends not thinking ofan v thing serious, as no fracture was perceptible.

" . iSST Some scribbler has pretended to give an account of the discussion between Messrs. Craige and Osborne at Lincoln ton. The delectable epistle was sent to the Fayetteville Observer, and from it has been copied into various Whig papers with a zest that can be relished only by those who have long looked for "a hook on which to hang censure," and think they have at last found something that can be made available. The writer starts out with the an nouncement that he was so situated he could not hear the discussion through, nd yet plunges into a very minute (imaginary) account of it. Of course Mr O. said everv thin? that was reat. "rand end beautiful, and Mr C. simply "sprawlel Very likely: Mr C. followed Mr O.Jas we learn, and some "sprawling" was ae- cessary in order to keep up with his ' scat terings. ,f The. simple assertion ol the wri ter that he did not hear the discussion.' is of course, sufficient to discredit any lac count he might give of it, and it is ratfcer strange that a man should thus give noyde in advance that he was going to draw j&is readers a ''fancy sketch." (v We have the" very best authority saying that the positions of Mr Craige, as taken in his speech at Lincolnton, are wholly misrepresentd by this anonymous correspondent of the Observer. Mr C. did not abouud in the "bitterest denunci ation" of the masses of the Whigi; but he dil denounce some of the corrupt leaders of that party. He did not adtocate the conquest of Cuba by the sword,", nor any principle of "universal absorption." His position in regard to Cuba is that which will find a response in every American heart: If Cuba shall throw off' the Spanish yoke and establish her independence and theVi seek annexation, he is in favor of receiving her ; or if the Spanish government will consent to sell the island, he is in favor of puichas ing it. f But one great sin of Mr C. is thit he "spoke of the danger to be dreaded!; from the accumulation of power in the Federal head." Ay, there's the rub; and there is the danger too. Jefferson says, 4 Power is ever stealing from the many to thf few." There was once an old Federal pary that advocated the policy of confining the pow er to the few and it would seem tint the principle of that party still survive!, since a candidate before the people is cfnsureu for warning that people against t centration of power in the hands few- e con of the These we believe are the only mints in the almost pointless letter under 'consid eration.

AMERICANS IN PARIS, j Presentation to the Emperor .and Em press. A Paris letler of the 7th uliVity: The first presentations to Louis Napo leon, since he has been Emperor, and to Mrs Bonaparte, since she has been Empress took place at the Tuilleries, on Thursday niiiht. About sixty Americans am! sev enty English were introduced to their. Ma- jesties. i he ceremony is tins: iiieen- t emen and ladies to be presented form a double line, the gentlemen on one sine and the ladies on the other, as if they were to dance a Virginia reel. Space enough i3 left between for their Majesties to pass j easily. The Americans had one-half of the presentation room, and the English the other. The practice of the Emperor would seem to be to address some remark to about every third person as the names of the presentees are mentioned to him those of the ladies by their embassadress, and those of the gentlemen by their em bassador. The American portion of the ceremony was easy, graceful and highly successful; their Majesties were gracious in the extreme. Lord Cowley made a botch of the English introductions; and an incensed Lord was heard to remark, " Those Americans always do everything better than any one else; we cut no figure at all next to them." The Emperor looked well better, indeed, more at ease, more desirous of pleasing, than I have ever be fore seen him. The Empress wore white flowers, both in her hair and scattered in graceful profusion over her dress. She had a necklace of large pearls around Iter neck, but not a single diamond' The A merican ladies that had put on all their fol candas, to compete with her Majesty, shone in undimmed brilliancy. We made a very striking display. I doubt whether thirty handsomer women were ever col lected on an occasion of the kind. More tiin once the rmperor seemeu to sue out a lady of more than ordinary beautv, and call the Empress' attention to her. After the presentation there was a dance and a supper. Their Majesties waltzed together, and were once or twice bumped in an unseemly manner by the Americans who had grown dizzy and lost the power of properly guiding their footsteps. It was past one when their Majesties retired. The festivities continued, however, after their departure, and when the clock struck three the company had not yet left. Magnificent Enterprise. The hydrau lic canal at Niagara Falls is about to be commenced, and vigorously prosecuted to compleion. A company with a capital of $500,000 has been formed, embracing men of wealth and enterprise in Boston and New York. The canal will be three fourths of a mile long, seventy feet wide and ten feet depth of water; and is to be cut with perpendicular sides through a solid limestone ledge. The water power is the most magnificent in the world un limited in supply, and unaffected by either flood or drought ; having all the upper lakes for a retaining, and Lake Erie, twenty-two miles above, for a distributing reservoir. There is a clear fall, including the rapids and the cataract, of full two hundred feet. CAIKOIjnNlAN From the National Intelligencer. J INHALATION IN CONSUMPTION.

The "spirit rappers" have made con verts of two new celebrities lately, and are chanticleering in high glee. Robert Owen, the infidel, ('infidels, by the way, are among the readiest and most easily gullible victims of this deluion, so true is it that extreme credultiy is closely allied to extreme skepticism, has avowed his belief in the new delusion, and now Hon. N.

He says that he has been "experimenting," anl has not only heard the raps, but has actually received communications from the spirit world among the rest from his old as sociates. Clay, Calhoun, and Webster! Of course, the rappers crow lustily over this new proselyte, and will make the country ring with their pae ins. They now boast of two ex-Senators of the United States, anil one learned judge of the Supreme Court of New York, Edmonds, This fact shows that no amount of brain is a protection against the delusion that "highly intellectual men are as likely to become victims, as those whose "compari son" is marked two and three-quarters Mr Owen, in his account ol the way in which he became a convert, states that he has had numerous interviews with the spirits, and that all his questions relating to the past and present have been answer ed promptly. One of the questions, which he states to have been answered promptly and truly, is a follows : Q. "Have I (Owen) been assisted in my writings for the public by any paiticu- lar spirit r Ans. "Yes Q. "What spirit. Ans. "God.'' This last answer, Mr Owen tells us, was made in such a manner as to create "a peculiarly awful impression on those present. Those who are not shocked at the pre sumption and impiety of this, will smile at its credulity. Skeptics, who make a stumbling-block of the inspiration of the prophets and apostles, find no difficulty in believing themselves to have commuuica tiofts from the Deity! Yankee Blude.

The renown which the Kentucky Uifle- men have obuinej for precision and skill in handling the rifle, has become world- wiJ amJ exc;ted the attention and won der of the warriors of other nations. In battle they have stood as cool and collect ed although the first time in action as the oldest veterans in Europe, pouring in their deadly fire with unerring aim. I shot that officer,' exclaimed a rifle man, as he saw an officer fall at New Or leans. No, no, I shot him," said his comrade at his side. " If I shot him, I shot him in the right eye." And I shot hin in the left eye," was the response. After the battle, it was found that the officer had been shot in both eyes. Such unerring precision can only be at tained by long practice and thorough dril ling. At the first settlement of their State they were compelled to be constantly un der arms, as it were, to guard against the wily Indian, and escape the murderous tomahawk. As the father, so the chil dren grew up, tauht in their earliest in- w conveniently to be had, the father 11 i i . i ... - would dole out to his son a certain num- , F , r , - -M f ber of charges for his rifle, for each one of which he must brill": home some sort of game; or get a taste or hickory lor each missing shot. Many years ago I was conversing with my father on the wonderful skill of the Keiituckians, when he related to me the following anecdote : I was out in the wilds of Kentucky, years before the war, on a surveying ex pedition, and had an opportunity ol study ing the character of earlier settlers for a considerable time. It became necessary for me to stop for a few days at a log built tavern, and to while away the time I took my trusty rifle andexploied the woods for game, of which there was an abundance. The landlord had a fine little sou, about ten years old, who sometimes accompanied me with his rifle, and always had extreme ly good luck. On one occasion the fates seemed to be against him, for seeing a squirrel on a very high branch of a tree, he up with his rille and blazed away, and down came the squirrel. The look of dis may with which he viewed his game 1 shall never forget. Dropping the butt of his rifle on the ground, 1 enquired what was the matter. He answered : " Dad will lick me." " Lick you! what for?" " liecause I didn't hit him in the head " I soothed him' all I could, but this day's pleasure was oyer. On returning to the tavern I interceded for him all in my power to save him from the hickory, but it was of rio use, the application must be made, if only for the sake of example. " No, no, stranger! If I let him off I break a standing rule of the Statp," said dad. " I never was left off, ami what is good forme is good lor him. He must shoo! right or put up with what comes. " The hickory wss applied but no bones were broken. Such training as that, which was uni versal in those parts, tells the secret of Kentucky rille-shooting. Docro: died in St Braumont.
