NOaTH-OAROLINIAN. C. FAYETTEVILLE, N, Saturday, Janiiary. 1 3, 1 855. The Inangnral Address As stated last week, we did not receive this docu ment in time to insert it on Friday evening, but we published it on Saturday morning last, and this week re-publish it for the benefit of our subscribers who are supplied on Friday evening. It is, in every respect, an admirable document a document worthy of the man, of the occasion, and of the State over whose destinies he has been called to Upon the questions of Free Suffrage, Internal Improvement & the Rights of the slaveholding States, it is clear and emphatic. We hope all will read it. Oca Courts. On the first page to-day, we publish the bill introduced into the House of Commons by one of our representatives, Mr McPuffie, proposing a change in the judicial system of this comity. We hope our county people will read it. We are not exactly pre pared at present to express a decided opinion on the matter. From one reading we are fa vorably impressed with it. The Wilmington papers speak in a favorable manner of the bill, and seem to think that its provisions should be extended to New Hauover county. Messrs AVinslow, Conoid, McDuffie, and Shep herd have our thanks for Legislative documents. Fayettevii.i.e and Centre Pi.axk Road. The bill appropriating $50,000 for the extension of the Fayetteville and Centre Plank Road passed the Senate on its 2d reading, on Saturday last, without a dissenting voice. This is cheering to Fayetteville, as this road will be of immense bene fit to her. The very excellent Senator from Moore and Montgomery, S. II. Christian, Esq, is entitled to our thanks for his exertions in be half of this measure, as well as all others who have interested themselves. Wc know Mr Chris tian, and we know him to be an energetic re presentative his constituents could elect no better one. Ranking. The second communication from Rhrer and Harbor Innwovemente. The President of the IT. S. has sent a special message into Congress giving his views at length on River and Harbor improvements. , It is, too long for us to insert, as it would occupy about a page of the Carolinian. It is an able docu- ment, and is spoken of in terms of praise by a - i lar"-e portion of the public press. The N. Y. Journal of Commerce says: "The special message of President Pierce on returning the river and harbor bill of last ses sion, vetoed, is an able document, and can hardly fail to convince any one who reads it without perjudice that the President's doctrines on the subject ot rivers and harbors are substantially correct." The Philad-iphia Argus speaks of the mes sage as follows: "The reasoning in support of the Teto is whollv unanswerable, and will give a quietus to the subject of river and harbor improvements by the general government, lhe bold, open manner in whicV President Pierce has met and combatted the fallacies of the advocates of that Innsn construction of the constitution which would justify an interference of the general "overnment in the internal affairs of the States, meets the commendation of every democrat. It is on a par with his career while in the Sen ate, and exhibits that steadfast adherence to principles which is the best security for his course in the future." The X. Y. Day Rook says: "The iistinffuishing feature between this mes sage and those of Presidents Jackson and Polk upon the same great question consists in the ... . i . i i j practicable conclusions to winch tne l resiuciu arrives, and which are specified at the close of the message. 1 he last paragraph, especially, which suggests the policy of 'conferring ap propriations of the general government to works necessary to the execution of its undoubted powers, and leaving all others to individual en terprise, or to the separate States, to be pro vided for out of their own resources, or by re curring to the provision of the constitution whiofc authorizes the States to lay duties on tonnage with the consent of Congress,' must, we think, command the approbation of the country. This will take the subject out of Congress, and restore it to the people and the States, where it belongs." Our Position. Refore and since we gave our views on the -: The Argra th WotWngs. : r - Our neighbor, the Argus, replies at consider able length to our questions of week .before last. It sets out by denying our right to ques tion it on the subject of know-nothingism. We thiuk we have a perfect right to question it on that subject as much so as we would to ques tion it about any other matter that occupies public attention or is being discussed by the press generally. Asking for an editor's views on the principles of the know-nothings is very different from asking what he has for din ner, or whether or not he "sweetens his coffee." It is not likely that what a man eats for his dinner will ever become a question of importance enough to be settled at the ballot box. Rut know-nothingism is a subject that will be deci ded one way or t other at the polls just as the Free Suffrage, Rank, Tariff,' Land or any other political question has or may be settled, We will not, however, argue this point further, but proceed to review the answers of the Argus, and in so doing we intend to be as brief as possible, for we don't believe the e is so very much difference of opinion between ns in regard to the matter after all. The Argus says : "And first: AYe are asked if we "approve the principles of the organization known by the name ot "Know Nothings?' " To this interrogatory we are compelled to reply as the Scotchman did when asktl if he could play the fiddle. "I diuna ken, lor 1 neve, t.icd, - was the response of the cautious Sawney. In like manner we aro constrained to say: we do not know whether we like the principles of the organization known by the name of -Know Nothings," or not. what those principles are "Publius" on Ranking will be found in another J principles of the know-nothing party, as we column.

We do not know AVe are not of th order of '-Know Nothings;?' nor has any one who has aiuivonched the penetralia of the temple thought proper to enlighten onr ignorance. And we trust it is not noccssflrv for us to add that we are not in the habit of volunteering our dicta upon matters of which wc know nothing." The Argus is disposed to dodge onr ques tion. It will not do to say that you don' know what the principles of the know-nothings are. Aitnougn tne orner is secret, yet us principles are understood by the uninitiated. Now we did not believe nor did we say that the editor of the Argus had joined the know nothings, lie is too cunning to be caught in that way "Xo soothing strain of Maia's son can lull his hundred eyes to sleep" nor can know-nothingism stick its fingers in them, and blind him so that he cannot see what the latter cud of the organization will be. The Argus knows that it is generally understood and as- ii . ' . Trr ree. Mflrage BM. ' Ou Monday last, ialihe Senate, the Free Suffrage bill passed its 2d reading. , The fol lowing are the proceedings On it.- We will only remark at this time, that it will be seen that after Mr Hanghton's amendment . was adopted, he and other whigs who appeared to be so deeply interested, refused to vote for the bill, but actually voted ag aixst it. We may have more to say on this subject hereafter: . The Free Suffrage Bill was put upon its 2d reading. Mr Ashe, whig, moved to striKe out the first section of said bill and insert the fol- owiug as a substitute : "Every free white man of the age of twenty- one years, being a citizen of the United StateSj who has been an inhabitant ot tne estate ior twelve months immediately preceding the day of election, and shall have paid public taxes, shall be entitled to vote for a member ot tne Senate for the District in which he resides." . The Senate then went into committee of the whole, Mr Boyd in the Chair, when Mr Speaker Winslovv briefly gave his reasons why he should vote for the amendment of Mr Ashe and for the Free Suffrage bill. He said he had no doubt that under the Constitution as it now stands an alien had no right to vote. In his section they had never been permitted to do so. He conceived that an alien was not a free man in the sense of tl.e Constitution; but as he understood it was other wise in some sections of the State, and as the public mind was unsettled as to the true con struction of the Constitution, he was in favor of the amendment of the Senator from Anson, Mr Ashe, so as to remove all doubt. At the same time he was unwilling to have the present bill clogged by unnecessary amendments. He was for Free Suffrage. It was a privilege j that ought no longer to be denied to those not possessed of fifty acres of land. The committee then rose and Mr Boyd re ported the bill back to the Senate. The ques tion recurring on Mr Ashe's amendment, the same was withdrawn by him. The following amendment was offered by Mr Hanghton, whig, to the first section of the bill: "Provided, however, that no foreigner, un less he shall have paid public taxes, and shall have been naturalized according to the laws of the United States now in force, and that may hereafter be nassed in pursuance of the Con stitution of the United States, shall be allowed to vote either for a member of the Senate or it r r.ii- sented to by all hands that the main feature in ; ;, .

The Legislature. The proceedings of the Legislature in anoth er column will be found tiOrtsOally interesting this week. The Ilouse of Ccrtrimons on the 5th passed the bill, qu its 2d reading, chartering the Wilmington and Charlotte Railroad,- which pro vides for the endorsement, of the bonds of the Company, by the State, to an amount not ex ceeding $1,600,000. Also, the bill chartering a Railroad to run from the Coal Fields to a certain point on the N. C. Railroad, was passed the secoud reading. On Saturday, in the House, the bill extend ing the North Carolina Railroad east to Beau fort Harbor, passed its 2d reading by yeas 91, nays 14. The bill provides that the State shall aid in the construction of the road to the extent of two-thirds of the capital stock. We presume that the bill for the extension west will meet with equal favor. - Correspondence of the Carolinian. . ' , RALEIGH, AYednesday, Jan. 10. The proposition to make an eighth Judicial Circuit will probably fail from inability to arrange the details satisfactorily. It is very much to be regretted. The bill which passed, chartering the Wil. & Char lotte Railroad, compels the company to build out and out 25 miles of their road, and then the State aids them to the amount of $8,000 per mile, or $200,000. and so on as fast as every 25 miles shall be completed. The bill to increase the salary of the Governor and other State officers, has been rejected, but I think it will be reconsidered and pass. As you are aware, the bill appropriating $50,000 for the Centre Plank Road passed 2d reading. MesFre AVinslow, Christian and llaughton, addressed the Senate in favor of the measure. The committee on Internal Improvements in the Senate have reported in favor of chartering the Fay etteville and Greensboro' Railroad, and I think the chances for its passage are good. Also, favorable re ports were made iu regard to the Western Railroad, and the Dan liiver and la.iKin uauroaa. ine -committee on public buildings have been instructed to report a resolution for the erection of a new mansion for the Governor. The bill to charter the 'People's Hank" (name changed to "Bank of North Carolina") has lieen under discussion. I think the Cape Fear and State Banks will be re-chartered, with an increase of capital of $500,000. The Revenue bill has been re nor ted bv the Finance Committee. To-dav. in the Senate, the bill to construct a Ship Canal to connect the waters of Albemarle and Curri tuck Sounds with Chesapeake Bay, passed 2d reading. In the House, the subject of Bauking occupied most of the session (Mr Shepherd baing in the Chair.) but nothing definitely settled. u. Mu Clixgmax.

Wre have always thought there was much reason for snch a proposal, in the fact that the people of those corners were very far from their respective Court Houses, and their county duties were therefore more than usually burthensome. But a memorial lias gone up to Baleigh for a very different object, if we arc correctly inform ed ;"no less than to divide the County of Cum berland, and form a new county out of the Northern portion, embracing at least two-fifths of the entire area of the county, and approaching within about 10 miles of this town. Such is the report, for we have not seen the memorial. It is stated that the proposed boundary is to commence at Mingo Creek, on the Sampson line, thence with it' to the Cape Fear, thence with Bower Little River and Grain's Creek to the Moore county line. This would approach j siv.rrl order to make our opposition effective !

Nothing can be accomplished by persecution. But to return to the starting point. Wc say it is hardly possible that we are to be pro scribed for our opposition to know-nothingism, because it would be just as right and proper for whigs to withdraw their support inconsequence of our opposition to whig principles, as it would be for know-nothings to do it; and we presume thev never thought of such a thins:.

We do not abuse them lor their course tins is a free country, and a man has a right to enter tain opinions to suit himself, but we think if their minds are open to conviction, they will learn that they have adopted a wrong course. Heretofore we have -published very little about know-nothings for the reason that we deemed it unnecessary we believe the organization is short-lived. If we chose we could fill our columns, week after week, with arguments against it, but as neither ot our neighbors ap pear to openly favor it, wc think we can furn ish our patrons with something more readable. separate from us a large number of the heaviest tax payers and most valuaoie citizens. xo whilst no one ought to object to extending relief to citizens who reside from 25 to 50 miles from the Court House, yet the people of this part of the county would, wc think, be loth to part company with their friends nearer to town than 25. miles; and wc trust there will be as little dis position 011 the part of those friends to separate from the town and the rich and prosperous and venerable conntv of Cumberland. We therefore respectfully suggest that immediate steps be taken to get up a counter memorial. eST" A Convention of the soldiers of the war of 1812 was held in Washington city on the 8th inst., (anniversary of the battle of Xew Orleans.) About 1500 assembled. Ilesolntions were passed urging Congress to make provision for soldiers, and their widows and children, and asking for an extension of the pension laws for their benefit.

We were glad, however, to get the bill even with this objectionable feature, for it is transient in its character and unimportant in its influence on the future destiny of that territory. It is transient, for 110 one supposes that Nebraska and Kansas will long continue in the condition of territories. They will ere long become sovereign States, and may then make such laws concerning the right of suffrage as to them may seem necessary and proper. But further: the importance of the provision is over-estimated.

Jlrgus Wc say, emphatically, we arc in favor of Mr Boyd's free suffrage bill just as it stands, be cansc it does not change the position of foreign ers in the State from what it has always been Mr Boyd's bill docs not confer . upon foreigners any more privileges than they enjoyed under the Constitution of '76 or the amended one of '35; it proposes no change, it alters nothing. Ac cording to the showing of the Argus, aliens do not now, and cannot after the passage of this bill, exercise the right of suffrage, because the laws of Congress interpose. Of course we art- opposed to allowing foreigners who have never been naturalized, the right to vote in this State. This privilege they do not now enjoy, neither will they after the passage of the free suffrage bill. The bill simply proposes the abolition of the fifty acre qualification for senatorial voters, and affects no other provision of the constitu tion. Now if this is correct, wc ask what is the object of making such a fuss about a matter that free suffrage does not disturb? It is for the purpose of defeating that great measure. Last summer, the Argus, and other whig pa in" to settle in our country, as well as to those pcrs, professed to be great friends to free suf- already citizens, would have an effect prejudicial fragc, but now we find them throwing every to the South and the institution of slavery, let, obstacle in its way possible.

We have been told more than once that this notice has injured our pros pects for getting a new Bank at this place. Now, intending no disrespect to any one, we simply say that we cannot believe it. The idea that a piece of humorous badinage for which the community of Fayetteville is in nowise responsible (written by a person who will probably never apply for or receive any accomo dation whatever from the new Bank, for the .1 -. 1 1 C....fitii-.ii.i,ii,t frtr b.nl tn reason tnai it wuuw.uo iuiu...v"" travel a long distance for that purpose) should so act upon a dignified body like the General Assembly as to prejudice the Mown 01 layette ville and her interests at their hands, is so pre posterous, that respect for the members of the State Legislature forbid us to entertain it.

Our view of the matter, then, is briefly this: The Kansas- Nebraska act involved the great principle of non-intervention by Congress with slavery in the Territories it was designed to establish that principle for all time to come. It would, there fore, in our opinion have been impolitic to have embarrassed this great question by disputes over minor qnestions, by frittering away the strength of its supporters by petty squabbles over de tails transient in their character and unimpor tant in their influence expressly prohibiting unnaturalized persons from voting.

In the House of Reps, on the 5th inst, the delegate from Nebraska Territory, Napoleon Bonaparte Giddings, bad name, appeared and took his seat. Several memorials have been presented asking Congress to send an ex pedition to search for Dr. Kane. The Argus thiuks we did it injustice in say ing that that paper insinuated that the deficien cy in the State Treasury was owing to demo cratic rule. We wish to do no one injustice, and as the Argus denies having made any such insinuation or meant anything of the kind, wc give it the benefit of its disclaimer, but at the same time onr neighbor must know that its re marks on that subject were well calculated to leave the impression that the fiuancial affairs of the State had been badly managed. We don't think that the Argus has succeeded in provin"- "hypocrisy" upon democratic editors, nor can it do so until it proves that our mone tary matters have been badly managed, which it does not pretend to charge. What democra tic papers asserted last summer about the good management of our finances, was correct; and as the Argus does not charge corruption or bad management on the part of democratic officers, we are unable to see how it can convict demo cratic editors of iypocrisy. ; ; Mr The Ar"-us also asks US if we do not approve Ticknor.
