THE NO RTH-CAROLINIANi PAYETTE VILLEIN ; Ct
NORTH-CAROLINIAN FAYETTEVILLE, N, C. Saturday, January 6, 1855. The Inagnral Address. Governor Bragg delivered his Inaugural Ad dress before both houses of the General Assem bly on Monday, and we kept our columns open expecting to receive it in time for publication tliisweek, but as might have been expected, failure and delay of the mails have disappoint ed us. The Standard, which generally comes to hand on Wednesday momiug, was not re ceived until Friday, and then too late for us to make any selections before going to press Even the Wilmington Journal and Herald fail ed to arrive on Friday morning (something tin usual), so we are without late dates from any where. Bad, bad, very bad. JBgy Mr Malcom Shaw, of Randallsville, will please accept our thanks for the following list of subscribers, payment for which we hereby acknowledge : Arch'd McDiarmid, John C McLean, Juo C McLeod, Alex Black, Dauiel Black, Dr M Shaw, David Currie, Malcom Shaw, Jr., M McBryde, Juo II McMillan, Arch'd Camplicll, Mr N. S. Stone, of Robeson, will also accept our thanks for a list of twelve subscri bers, composed of the following names: Win Kinjaw, Oliver Kinlaw, Alex Kinlaw, David Allen, Richard Taylor. Seth Smith, Stephen Brison, Noah Mercer, Jr., S J Taylor, John Towers, N S Stone, M Graves. AST" Mr Love McDaniel also has our thanks for the following list: Robert Melvin, James Hall, Owen Bedsole, L McDaniel, J Downing. We her.by acknowledge payment for the same. To commence the new year with 25 or 30 new subscribers is quite encouraging, and we say to our friends iu the country who have been and are making exertions to extend our circula tion, we heartily thank you, and promise that no exertions on our part shaU be spared to make the Carolinian secoud to no newspaper in the State. As soon as we cau we intend to make still further improvements in our establishment. Sew Hotel. The Sne three-story brick building near the foot of Haymount having been completed, was opened on Monday last, 1st inst., for the ac commodation of patrons. It is called the " Dobbin House " a popular name and after a fair trial we believe the House will be equal ly as popular. It is handsomely and superbly furnished, and has all necessary conveniences for the comfort of boarders. Mr Powers will be found an agreeable and obliging landlord. The Concert. The Concert at Fayette ville Hall, on Wednesday evening, by Messrs. Johnson, Ferguson and Arey, fully equalled expectation. All were highly pleased and de lighted with the performance. The community will be glad to learn that there is to be a series of these entertainments, the proceeds of which are " to be applied to the different Churches in the place. Let native talent be encouraged, especially when it is exercised for such a laudable purpose. Banks and Currency. On our first page to-day we commence the publication of a series of articles on Banks and Currency. By pub lishing these articles we are not to be under stood as endorsing all the views of the writer, but insert them in order to let our readers see his views on the subject. Hiring Day. Monday, the 1st January, was hiring day in this place, and from the high prices which negroes brought, one would think that money is not as scarce as it is represented to be. Common hands brought $150 and $175 per year mechanics $235 and $250. Women, cooks and washers, $75 and $85. Boys 15 and 18 years old, from $40 to $75. Girls, 12 and 15 years old, $35 and $40. These are consid ered very high prices for the present hard times, and indeed we think they are high for any sort of times. Some of the advantages 6f Advertising. A gentleman who advertised in the Carolinian a house to rent, told us the other day that he had had applications enough to enable him to rent a dozen houses if he had them that he got forty dollars more for the house this year than he did last. Made forty dollars by paying two for advertising! We collected a small bill from a merchant who has recently commenced advertising, and he informed us that he considered the money well-spent, for, said he, " many of my country friends did not know that I was doing business in FayetteTille until I advertised, when they come to me and expressed surprise that they had not found me out" "hereafter," said he, "I intend to keep my business before the public." He is right, for a man that don't advertise is very apt to be considered " out of town". Again. A gentleman who advertised a negro woman for sale, has had so many applications for her that we think he had now better notify the public that she is sold in order to stop in quiries. The above are only some instances. Homicide. The WiImingto?iJournal says Mr Francis Stevens of Columbus county, was killed by a man named D. Fields, on Tuesday night the 26th nit. The ; difficulty occurred at a gathering where both no doubt got intoxicat- fl ' u ngul 8Prn,, UP. hen Fields ul"e,ls across the throat with e uiea in nve minutes. ;'Vftvenir Brae?. On Monday last Thomas Bragg was dnly in stalled Governor of North Carolina. We . be lieve Mr Bragg will guide the ship of State with an experienced hand and discharge his re sponsible duties with firmness and in a mauner calculated to reflect credit upon himself and the office which he has been called on to fill. Pos sessing, as he docs, a clear head, discriminating iudrment. cool deliberation, a thorough ac quaintance with the wants of the State audits political history, he cannot fail to exercise the functions of his office to the entire satisfaction of the party, at least, that elevated him. We predict that Gov. Bragg's administration will be a popular one. Foreign Intermeddling. We find in our ex changes a letter dated "St. Domingo, Nov. 22," from which we learn that the Cazneau treaty was ready and would have been signed on the 8th Sept., hut for the interference of the French and English Consuls, and the appearance in the harbor of an allied squadron of five men-of-war, with a declaration, in terrorem, to the Emperor Soulouque, that three more were daily expected This caused the postponement of the treaty ratification. It is also said that the French consul caused the publication of a local news paper to be suspended for " its Yankee princi pics," and had the American flag hauled down from the fort on a day of general rejoicing The American commissioner, Gen. Cazneau has protested against such unlawful interfer ence, and declares it a violation ot the relations of amitv and commerce subsisting between the respective countries. Thomas W . Dorr, or liovernor Dorr " as he has been called, of Rhode Island, died on the 27th ult. at Providence. He was generally known as the leader of the "Dorr insurrection" as it was termed, or "Algcrine war," in Rhode Island in 1841. Up to that time, it will be re membered, the State of Rhode Island had been governed under the old charter grauted hy one of the English Kings, which possessed many il liberal features, restricting the right of suffrage to a small portion of the population. A party was organized which called a convention in the name of the people, and adopted a more liberal Costitution, and under it Mr Dorr was elected Governor. A Mr King was elected under the old charter. An o :cn rupture was the conse quence, lhe U. fc. troops maintained the offi cers acting under the old system, and Dorr fled. He was afterwards arrested, and convicted of high treason, and sentenced to death, which sentence was commuted by the Governor to imprisonment for life. Iu 1847 he was pardon ed, and the Legislature subsequently passed an act for expunging from the records of the Su preme Court the sentence passed against him, and restored his civil rights. The Doorites no doubt acted imprudently at that time, but their views have since been adopted, and the old charter swept away. Late news from Havana state that the trial of Lacorte, charged with being a fillibuster, was progressing. lie openly avowed, it is stat ed, that his purpose was the liberation of his conntrvmcn from the Spanish yoke. Captain Hawkins, of the schr. C T Smith, had been re quired to appear and answer the charge of hav ing clandestinely brought arms to the island. All the forts of the island have received heavy armaments from Europe, apprehending, we pre sume, an invasion of some sort. cut a knife so that Fields had not been arrested at the last accounts. N C. University. Tlie Standard says that the Trustees of the University have appoint ed Mr Ashbel G. Brown, who faastdnring the last ten years, been Tutor of ancient languages, and discharging his duties with universal ac ceptance, Adjunct Professor of the Latin and Ureek languages. -.":' Richard H. Battle and William R. Wetraore were appointed Tutors to supply the vacancies occasioned by the resignstion of Kemp P. Battle, Esq., and the Rev. Rictard Sines. Munificent Donation. Judge Helfenstein has donated a large tract of coal land, situated near Shamkin, for the benefit of the poor of the cities of N. York, Philadelphia, and Balti more. The land is said to be worth $1,500.- 000. It is not often if ever the case that a man while living makes a donation of mnch value; the practice is generally to use wealth for one's own benefit as long as Providence will permit, and after the last sands of life are about running out, then give it away. But iu this instance the donor is still in the enjoyment of health and life, and no doubt has the good wishes and prayers of a large portion of the poor and destitute of those cities. He certain ly deserves the admiration of the world. CSy It is stated (with how much truth we do not know) that Commodore Moore, of the defunct Texas Navy, is in Washington city awaiting the arrival of Gen. Houston in order to challenge him to fatal combat. The difficulty between these old heroes is not stated. It is doubtful whether "old Sam" will accept, for we see it stated that he has recently joined the Baptist Church. Drowned. The Wilmington Herald of Wed nesday says that a free negro from Fayetteville, named Bill Mallett, fell from a flat at Walnut street dock yesterday afternoon and was drowned. From the Observer. Municipal Election. Our Town election is not usually so exciting as to call for a more par ticular statement than the mere naming of those who are elected. But the election of Monday last is said to have developed the power of the "Know Is othings," and the following statement has been handed to us for publication. We do not know whether Know Nothingism had any thing to do with the election for we have no knowledge of the association here, though there is a current report to that effect but if this election is their work, we can xnly say that they might have done worse.

As the eastern war progresses, it is a ques tion often asked both in this country and Eu rope, " who are the Americans for?" At the outset, in England, it was assumed that Ameri ca would give her whole moral support to the western powers. This may have been the case, but as the war progressed a decided change in sentiment with the people of this country took place. We believe that two-thirds of the American people now sympathize with Russia. When the struggle was between Russia and Turkey, it was natural for our countrymen to sympathize with the latter, the weaker power. The demands of Russia upon her were contrary to natural right and to everything like national independence. But when the alliance between England and France was formed, when Turkey relapsed from a leading character to a mere in significant supernumerary, when the issue turned no longer upon the possession of the Principali ties, when the English press commenced boast ing and talking about learning America how to behave herself, and when the allied powers claimed the perogative of interfering in Ameri can affairs, public sentiment in the U. States underwent a change. Their machinations to prevent the acquisition of Cuba by this country, and their interposition between us and the Sandwich Islands, were well calculated to alien ate sympathy from them on this side of the water. These things, together with the long- continued interference of the so-called philan thropists of Exeter Hall in the domestic con cerns of fifteen States of this Union, and the late insult of the French Government to this country in the person of its Minister, are suffi cient to determine the direction of American sympathy in this war. It is with Russia be cause it is the interest of this country that Rus sia should succeed, and because the rights of humanity will not be subserved by the triumph of the allies. The Emperor of Russia has never allowed the slightest misunderstanding to arise between him and our government his toue has uniformly been one of clearness and confidence, and there has been no difficulty in apprehending his real position towards us. Not so with Eng land and France; they have! ever looked on this country with a deceitful, jealous and suspicious eye, and it has been difficult to understand their true position towards us. We always like to class definitely our friends and enemies, then we know how to act. Should Russia fall before a stupendous European alliance, we know not how soon America may be forced to arm her self for an encounter with the same overshadow ing power, and defend her rights. Young Hen The two Classes. A cotemporary very truthfully remarks that while pious and charitable people throughout the laud arc endeavoring to rescue the children of the poor from ignorance and vice, similar efforts would not be out of place to convert the sons of rich men into respectable, worthy and useful citizens. We think the idea a rood one. for it is a notorious fact that one class needs near about as much attention as the other. Who is it that cannot call to mind some young man born of wealthy parents, who is now ou the broad road to destruction, and instead of being an ornament to society aud a benefactor of his race, as his opportunities might have en abled him to be, is a mere blank in the world and an object of pity and contempt in the eyes of those who know how to appreciate real merit. We would not have the efforts making in behalf of poor boys relaxed in the least no, no but on the contrary they should be in creased with redoubled diligeuce, for we feel assured that there are many gems covered with dust, which by a little rubbing, will show their value. Many poor boys, now bare-footed and ragged in our streets, with proper attention and encouragement, could be aud will be we hope made shining lights in the world. But we think it would be equally as praiseworthy to make an effort at least to reform the sous of rich men, or those who consider themselves as belonging to a higher circle iu life. We fear that most people entertain a wrong conclusion in regard to this matter, viz : that the sons of rich men are in less danger of becoming addict ed to habits of vice - than those of poor ones. We venture the opinion that, in proportion to number, there are as many rich young men who become a pest to society and a disgrace to their relatives, as poor ones. And t! e reason the correctness of this opinion is not more fully known, is, that persons generally are disposed to view the practices of a rich young man in a more charitable light than they do those of a poor one the faults of the wealthy are forgot ten, while those of the poor and friendless are never suffered to die, and instead of being covered as much as possible, and their perpe trator counselled, they are heralded forth that they may be seen and known of men. These arc saddening truths and worthy of attention. Then we say let some method be adopted to instil correct principles and habits into the minds of young men who are indulging in riotous and profligate living, and they will be better prepared to assist the poor ones. Rather Ignorant. However well informed the English press may be in regard to subjects generally, they appear to be badly posted up about the nature and manner of our Govern ment. A London paper states that in the late closely contested election for Governor of the United States, Myron II. Clark was elected, but that the votes had to be counted in order to ascertain who was the real Executive of the country. Myron H. Clark Governor of the U. States! what an ideal And the votes had to be countedl , as though they were not always counted. Our English neighbors appear to be quite ignorant of " small things " beyond their own island and its dependencies.; Somebody must send them word that Clark is Governor of New York. j6T"The Public Treasurer of N. C, advertises for proposals for $378,000 of State bonds bids to be opened on the 31st inst- HORTB " CAftdLHA LEGISLATURE From ttie 25th to the 29th nothing was done iu either House. ; 1 - On Friday, the 29th, in the House of Com mons, Mr Shepherd, among several others, pre sented a temperance memorial. - Mr Vance introduced a bill abolishing the militia system in North Carolina. The bill to emancipate Lewis Dunn was read 2d time, and on motion of Mr Dortch laid on the table. The bill to emancipate Betty, a slave, was read and laid on the table. A bill regulating the number of Justices of the Peace authorized to transact business in the county of Randolph was read the second time, and amended by adding the counties of Alamance and Cumberland; and by suspension of rules passed its second and third readings. A bill to pay the Wardens of Poor in Alamance County, amended by adding the county of Duplin and passed its second and third readings. On Saturday, Dec 30th, in the House, Mr G. M. White introduced a bill regulating the sale of grain, meat and salt, which was referred to the committee on Agriculture. Mr Baxter offered the following Resolution, which was ordered to lie on the table for the present and be printed : Whereas, In the opinion of the General Assembly, no Bank unconnected with Rail roads or other Internal Improvement projects, ought to be created, have its charter renewed or extended, its capital increased or powers and privileges enlarged, without an equivalent to the State, Beit therefore, Resolved, That the joint com mittee on Ranks be, and they are hereby in structed to prepare and report amendments to each of the bills now pending before this Gen eral Assembly, proposing to create, renew or extend the charter, increase the capital stock or enlarge the powers and privileges of any such Bank, so as to secure to the State, as a bonus, a portion of the capital stock in the same. Mr Settle, in behalf of the committee on claims, reported favorably upon a resolution in favor of D. A. Ray fc Co., which by suspension of rules passed its second and third readings. On Monday, Jan. 1st, in the Senate, Mr Boyd introduced a bill to provide for a more uniform and equitable valuation of lands, and to provide that taxes be paid in the same year the list of taxables is taken. A number of Revised Statnte bills passed their second and third readings. In the. House of Commons, Mr Bogle pre sented a memorial from citizens of Alexander praying that the Legislature take no action on the Temperance memorials being presented to the Legislature asking for the enactment of a Prohibitory liquor law. A motion to print the memorial caused some debate, from which we learn that it was written by a man who killed himself by drinking liquor he died a few days after writing it. It was referred to the commit tee on grievances. Mr Stubbs introduced a resolution instruct ing the committee on the Judiciary to inquire into the expediency of abolishing Jury trials in the County Courts of Pleas and Quarter Ses sions, and authorizing three Superior Courts in each county instead thereof, which, on motion of Mr Stnbb s, wns laid on the table. Mr Shep herd introduced a bill in relation to the wilful destruction of corner stones and corner trees, which was referred to the committee on the Judiciary. After the necessary arrangements, at 12 o'clock M , in the presence of the two branches of the General Assembly, Hon, Thomas Bragg was duly inducted into the office of Governor, the onth of office being administered by Chief Justice Nash. After an Inaugural Addres by his Excellen cy, the Governor, on motion of Mr Barringer the House adjourned. Correspondence of the Carolinian. Raleigh, Jan. 3, 1S55. The Legislature is again in full blast. The House had been setting for two or three days last week, but the Senate did not succeed in getting a quorum until Monday. The members have come back with renewed energy to their labors. On Monday Gov. Bragg took the oath of office, administered by Chief Justice Nash, in the presence of both Houses of the General Assembly. The Governor looks in fine health, and is in good spirits, and will likely be in fine tune to give Geu. Dockery another heat two years hence when the "old wagoner" cracks his whip. The Inaugural Address was happy and well received. Nothing of importance was doue the first part of the week. The House has been industrious ly engaged upon the Revised Statutes. There are many important bills to be actetl on. Vari ous projects for Banks, and for rechartering the old Batiks. Mr Caldwell is nrging his plan of a Bank. I am not familiar with the details of it to pass an opinion. Caldwell is, however, a clever fellow, of no inconsiderable ability, and whatever his notions may be about banking, Guilford has reason to be proud of him. Your member, Mr Shepherd, stands high here, and, as well as Mr McDuffie, is quite popular. Mr Cofield is also a good representa tive. In truth, the lower counties have all sent clever delegations. Faison, of Sampson, is an active, useful member, of whom Sampson may be proud. The Senate will be an interesting place from Missouri Legislaturb This body has been organized, and an anti-Benton man elected Secretary of the Senate. The position of the other officers are not stated. It is reported that the whig members have adopted a platform discountenancing the efforts of the free soilers and abolitionists to continue . the agitation of the slavery qnestion, and declaring they will vote for no man for United States Senator who is not favorable to the Nebraska bill. There is but little chance, then, for Thomas H. Benton. New York Legislature. The Legislature of New York met on the 2d inst. Gov. Clark's message was received immediately after their organization. He defines his position on the snbjcct of a liquor law, and strongly advocates the prohibition of its sale, citing a great mauy forcible arguments. He considers prohibition clearly within the limits of the Constitution, and hopes that a bill will be framed to secure the suppression of the traffic, without inter fering with justice or personal rights. The Message recounts the particulars of the Lemmon Slave case, alludes to the attitude assumed by Virginia, and recommends that provision be made to defend the rights aud in terest of the great Empire State. It regrets the veto of the River and Harbor bill, and considers that a proper tariff would have obvi ated the present distress. The Governor strongly denounces the repeal of the Missouri Compromise; and considers its restoration demanded for the security, peace and permanent welfare of the commuuity. Congress. There has been no business of impor,tauce transacted by Congress since our last issue.
