For the Carolinian. . lemarraHc Reeling in Moor. At a meetine? of a large portion of tlie democrats of .Moore, held in Carthage on the 19th of Fcb'v, 1S56, it being Tuesday of the Superior Court, on motion of Col. John Mor rison, Dr. John Shaw was appointed Chairman, and John 13. Black ami O. A. Burgiss were requested to act as Secretaries. The object of the meeting having been explained by the chairman, On motion of A 11. lllack, ti committee of six were appointed by I he chairman to draft, resolutions expressive of the sentiments of the meeting. The cliiiirmau appointed the folio w: ing gentlemen said committee, viz: A. II. Black, Col. John Morrison, Mai coin M. Bine, Amos Jessup, Daniel McDonald and Wm. D. Harrington, who having retired for a short time reported through their chairman, A. 11. Black, the following resolutions which were unanimously adopted: Resolved, That we approve of holding a Democratic State Convention in the city of Raleigh, on the 1 Oth of A pril, as designated by the Democratic Central Committee. llesolved, That the President of this meet ing appoint 30 delegates to represent Moore county in said Convention. Resolved, That whilst we will cheerfully support the nominee of the Convention for Governor, provided he is a democrat, tried and - faithful in tho principles wrgtafes' Rfcrh -';.vt "rally around our. former gallant standard bearer, his excellency, Thomas Bragg. Resolved, That there is no living patriot whose acts, so far, more entitle him to the re spect and gratitude of his countrymen than Franklin Pierce. His course has been above the reach of fanaticism or sectional bias, as set forth in his message to the Senate and House of Representatives, his Kansas message, and his proclamation of the 11th inst.; and we vouch, that the man who reads these docu ments, if he is not of the number of those who having eyes will not see, ears but will not hear, and the capacity for understanding but will not perceive the truth, will rise from their perusal convinced that Franklin Pierce is a true patriot, and that the Constitution and laws of his country, and not party dictations, are his political text books. In view of these facts, and the present excited condition of the country, we feel no hesitation in saying that it would be hazardous to attempt a change in the executive department of the government. We therefore instruct our delegates to the State Convention, to give their support only to dele gates to the National Convention who will go there pledged to do their utmost to secure the i. re-r.omiuation of Franklin Pierce for the Presi dency. We also proclaim that Hon. James C. Dobbin is our first choice for the Yice-I'resi-dency. Resolved, That our delegates are further in structed to confer with other delegates from the counties composing this District, for the purpose of recommending suitable delegates to represent said District in the National Conven tion. During the absence of the committee, the meeting was addressed by Col. J as. L. Cains, of Montgomery county, in a clear and forcible manner. After the reading of the resolutions. J. J. Jackson, of Chatham, A. R. lilack and J. R. Mcintosh, each addressed the meeting for a short time, with that spirit that breathes forth true patriotism and love for our country. I" compliance with the 2d resolution, the following gentlemen were appointed, fo-wit: Col John Modson, A K I'.iaek. Dr II hum.

A meeting of a- portion of the democratic party of Bladen, was held at Maysville, Bladen county, on the 16th inst., for the purpose of organizing a democratic club. The meeting was organized by calling John Monroe, Esq., to the Chair, and Danl.Miinn, Jr., and T. W. Robeson, Escjrs, to act as Secretaries. The Chairman explained the object of the meeting. On motion a committee of three were ap pointed to draft resolutions suitable to the . occasion. The committee consisted of M'aj. J. S. Willis, J. F. Willis, and Daul. Munu, Jr. On motion, T. W.

The members from North Carolina, seem to have small place in tlie programme, Mr Clingman, who stands fourth on the Committee of Foreign Affairs, having the most important position. A Demonstration of the Leap Ykar. A rather singular and amusing occurrence took place near Cochranville, Chester co., Pa., a few weeks since. A Mr Batehtell, from Medina, Ohio, was introduced to a Miss Duquet, of Chatham, Chester county, abouLfour o'clock in the afternoon of the 16th ultimo, and married her within three hours afterwards. Both were said to be worthy and respectable persons, but very lively. They were jesting upon the sub ject of matrimony, when she, jestingly "popped the question,'' to which he acceded. "One reply brought on another untd thev went to the tiar- son and h: d the cerenio.iy performed. shall have full power and bye-laws for their THE NORTH CAROL! j Who is Rf.sponsiiji.e. It is a labor j plots for the Southern Know-Not hiu and its sympathizers, to, contend: t i Democracy of Congress are responsible" I Selection ot the i reesoder Banksas S i The recorded vote demonstrates with i ... ... . . . . . . .

Ilot srox and the Presidency. New York, Feb. 15. The Evening Post .publishes a letter from the Hon. Samuel Houston con cerning the connection of his name with' t lie otiice of President, and recently alludeil to in many of the journals of the country. His remarks are principally confined to advices touching the formation of the next Cab inet; but the most important point is where the writer declares, tliat tio consideration will in duce him to remain in Washington in an ofliciul position. The Nationality of the Democratic Party. The New Haven Courier thinks "that if Messrs. Orr, Cobb, and other southern demo crats, who addressed amass meeting in New Hampshire last week, were properly questioned and cross-examined, they, or the cause t!iy represent, would be damaged." To which the New Haven Register replies with gftiit force and truth: ' " "This shows how little sense some of the op position press is blessed with for democracy in New Enulaud is democracy in every other State in the Union! it has a national, net a sectional characer! Based on the const'tn tion of the country it cannot go astray from the cardinal points which that agreement unci Dona speciites ana requires, ami is. iiierenre, consistent and invulnerable.

This the democracy of New England demand for themselves, and concede to others; and they will never permit,' if they can prevent it, any interference with the-rights of the several States, be they in the North or South. With such a creed, we should like to be informed how its champions "could be 'damaged' by all the 'cross-questioning' that bow-legged fanaticism is capable of."-. Ff.om K ansas. Extract of a letter from a Spoilt li Carolinian in Kansas to his friend in Spartanburg, dated Atchison, January 22, 1 850. "It is my opinion, that Kansas will be a slave State.

The side of the house ws crushed in, one balcony was torn off, whle divans were ripped up, one chandelier, swpt from its fastening, shivered into fragments; frightened inmates rushed out into open air fir, such impromtu costumes that the whole neigL borhood felt scandalized.

V. S-EASOXABLH AdvICETO THE Ol.D-LtKE WHIGS. Suggestions -. have recently been thrown out. n a number of highly-influential and respectable ournals in the North and West, with the view of directing the attention of the old-line whigs to the alleged" - necessity of reonranizinsr their party and of holding their customary National Convention. In noticing tLe course of the Louisville Courier, the Boston Courier, and other old-line whig organs, in regard to this subject, the Louisville Times takes occasion to impart the following seasonable advice: "If these gentlemen will act sensibly, they wiU meet and resolve to act with the democratic party during the coming presidential canvass, and help to crush out the vile, reckless, and 4 isnrirn ni')twv etIf r F 1 ? - w-i - t Linvlni A ft.i. at, they can reorganize their party, if they isire to do so, or continue their support of the ministration which they help to place in iwer, until such time as an honest difference to governmental policy shall demand on the part of the dissentients an organization of another party, upon a basis differing from the policy of the administration. e"This would be a course consistent with patriotism and with the conservative character which lias been claimed for the old whig party. The organization of a mere faction at this time, with no living questions of policy differing from those of the democratic party, would be unworthy of intelligent, conservative, and patriotic men. Nor are parties built ui by such hot-bed owth. They are erected upon fundamental .Vfferences of opinion, , npou constitutional tn.st ruction and 'policy ; and until these diftcr eiicfs arise, it is follv to attempt ' to force a party into existence, ihere are now no fundamental differences of opinion upon the policy of the country between democrats and , old-line wliigs. There is, therefore, nothing to prevent their cordial co-operation in the coining canvass. When together they have beaten down the factionists and fanatics who now threaten the overthrow not oidy of the funda mental principles of the constitution, but the constitution itself, it will be time enough to entertain differences of opinion upon questions of policy. - A Windfall. Some articles of old furniture were sold at auction, in Norfolk, a few days ago, Tor the benelit of two little orphan boys named Beveridge, whose parents died of yellow fever. They were very poor, and the furniture was valued at a mere trifle. Before the sale, some one forced open a drawer of an old be reau, for want of a key, when the pleasant dis covery' was made of $150 in gold, neatly tied up in a lit tit; bag. The money goes to the ; orphan children. . Ax In famous suggestion. The republican dictator, who issues his orders through the New York Tribune, announces that the admis sion of Kansas as a State, with the constitu tion lately adopted against law, "is the ques tion of war or peace," and that "it lies with the House of Representatives to decide it." The mode of proceeding is disclosed in the following infamous suggestion: "Such being the state of the question, we submit that a case has arisen in which the people's House is fully justified in exerting to tUe utmost its power over the people's jiur.se to carry out the people's will.. If the Senate and Executive, in obedience to the slavery exten ding faction, refuse to admit Kansas with its free constitution, let the supplies be withheld. Xo do otherwise is notning else than to put into the hands of that remorseless faction the JJO L'.J J -1 J i u J i intl m ' uiuuu anc flames, with the full knowledge that thev mean to do it. After the nefarious avowal which Pierce made in his recent special message that he will sustain the acts of the rutlian legislature and the still more explicit declara tion of the proclamation which we publish this morning, would it be less than madness to sub ject the national treasury to his expenditure, without some substantial guarantee that it should not be used to murder the free-State people of Kansas, or some act puttingit beyond his power to do so? Any representatives of a Tree State who votes a dollar to the army of which Gen. Pierce is the constitutional commander-in-chief, before such a barrier is set up in behalf of the settlers of Kansas, ought to weigh the question of his own personal safety for some little time ahead. He may be sure his vote will go to bring about a state of things very different from that in which slaveholders, who threaten to muster their slaves under the shadow of Bunker-Hill Monument, now tra verse the North in perfect security." New Firkaum. The New York correspondent of the Providence Tribune gives an account of aubther fire-arm, which, it is thought, will eclipse the Sharp rifle. It has been patented by J. W. Past, of New York city: "It is a repeating rilie, which can be loaded and discharged thirty times in a minute. It is very light and convenient, has but one dis charging barrel, and does not revolve. Under the barrel, in place of the ramrod in other guns, is a tube which receives thirty acorn-shaped, water-proof balls, each containing within itself powder and percussion for propulsion. The act of cocking the piece places a ball in the breech, and the whole thirty may be discharged in the most rapid succession. At a late trial the gun was discharged ten times in ten seconds. The ball is shaped like that of the Minie rifle, and the gun it;If is calculated as well for lom; distances as rapid firing. With the use of this gun, a new era will onen nnon tho hmitore rvf lie western prairies. If it has been, eniovment to follow a buffalo for a whole day to "get a second shot at him, how bewildering must be the excitement of shooting thirty out of a herd before they have time to stir out of their tracks. The gnu has been patented iu : England and France, and both Governments have ordered them to be put on trial." Contrast Nature and Art. In examining the edge of a very keen razor with a microscope, it will appear as broad as the back of a thick knife, rough, une ven, full of notches and furrows. An exceeding small needle resembles a rough iron bar. But the sting of a bee seen through the same instrument, exhibits every where a polish most amazingly beautiful, without the least flaw, blemish, or inequality, and it ends in a point too fine to be discerned. A small piece of exceedingly fine lawn appears, through a miscroscoper like a hurile or lattice, and the threads themselves seem coarser than the yarn with which ropes are made for anchors. But a silkworm's web appears smooth and shining, and everywhere equal. The smallest dot that can be made with a pen, appears, when viewed by the microscope, an irregular spot, rough, jagged and uneven. But the little specks on the wings or bodies of insects are found to be most accurately circular. So great is the con trast between the works of Nature and roan.

Y"ork Journal of Commerce has the following discription of the new Cunard steamer Persia. ' .".-.: She has accommodations for 200 passengers for whom births are provided on one deck. On the same deck is an elegant cabin for gen tlemen who desire to sit in the centre of the ship, and adjoining it, the Ladies' Cabin, a jjor,rcous apartment, fitted up in a-style of luxury, and adorned with beautiful paintings. The cabin is panelled with bird-eye maple, and heated by steam as are all parts of the vessel. The state-rooms are all well-lighted and venti lated. . There is a passage all arouud the .ship below the main deck, so that no passenger will need to come on deck to get to or from his state-room. On the upper deck are the main and force saloons, officers berths, and other ac commodations, and at the extreme end of the ship, a large smoking room. The main saloon is 00 feet long, 20 feet wide and 8 feet high; is panelled with bird's-eye maple, with twisted pilasters and neatly guilt frieze and ceiling. The decorations of this saloon are upon an equal scale of ele gance with those of the ladies' cabin. It will dine about 170 persons. Forward of the saloon are the kitchen and pantry, each with an area of 300 feet, and beautifully laid with tile;. The fore saloon, tlie store rooms and officers apartments are placed on the main deck. The erijw are accommodated in the top-gallant forecastle. The bakers' and butchers' ''shops, joiners' and carpenters' workshops, surgery, ice-nouses, lump-house, Imtlv rooms anil, olliet ueparimeuis, are juuiciouiy planned ami uttea up. To describe all the appointments of this noble ship, is quite as difficult as to enumerate the luxurious and dainty contents of a modern urst class hotel. The weight of the iron in the Persia when launched was 2,200 tons. When the engines are on board and fully loaded, the weight of the immense mass will be 5,300 tons, at which time she will draw 23 feet of water. Her coal cellers are constructed, to receive 1,400 tons of coal, an ample supply to carry her on her way across the Atlantic as fast she can burn tiiein. She has also accommodations for about 1.200 tons measurement of goods. This is the largest steamship afloat in the world far exceeding in length, strength, ton nage and steam power, the Great Britain or the Himalaya, and exceeding also, by no less than 1,200 tons, the interna! capacity of the largest of the present splendid Cunard liners.

The injury inflicted was severe, but at the end of three weeks, a recovery was effected. While indisposed, the-fair unfortunate frequent ly questioned the servant, and was assured that her face would not be disfigured. But what was her borrow, upon viewing herself for the iirst time after her convalescence, to dis cover a long hideous scar upon the fori head, extending some way down upon her click, and resenting a frightful contrast to the whiteness of her skin and beauty which she had previous ly to her disaster so frequently heard adulated.

She then put on all her diamonds and most beautiful jewels, clot lied herself in her richest robe, and placing herself placidly upon her bed, waiting the effects of the homicidal gas, whose fumes were busily diffusing themselves in the apartment. In the morning she was found cold, stiff and dead! Her body clothed in superb attire, glittering with diamonds, the expired brazier, and'the sumptuous appoint meat of the room, must have presented a terrible scene. A Factory Boy now Speaker.

At the early age of forty-two he has been elected Speaker of. the popular branch of Con gress an office scarcely second in importance to that of any other in the United States. In the case of the opponent of Mr Hanks for the Speakership, we find that wealth is not sufficient to command place, however worthy its possessor may be in other respee s. Gen. Wm. Aiken of S. C. was born to a princely for tune had everything that wealth could obtain ami is represented as the owner of fifteen nnn dred slaves and half a dozen plantations. Whilst we deplore the election of Hanks and should have hailed with lively satisfaction the election of Aiken, we nevertheless would not withhold the great incentive to exertion of which we have a most striking example in the case just cited. Comi'arativk Longevity or Whites asd Hi.acks. -The Southern Medical Journal of February, referring to the mortality statistics of the late census, remarks: "These documents sustain the general impres sion that the African lives longer than the Caucasian race, one hundred whites and one hundred and forty-eight blacks being reported as having died of old age.

Hence it is that very many of our , slaves, when sixty years ot age, imagine and j declare that they are eighty or ninety, and aiei accordingly indulged with an exemption from I further compulsory labor.

On Friday in the Ohio legislature Mr Jewett pres ented a memorial from tho Western Anti-Slave- 1 ry Association of Selina, Columbiana county,' praying the House "to decline entering into the ' election of United States Senator; to rescind the laws which regulate the election of mem bers of the House of Representatives of the United States and electors for President; to ptovide for an amendment -of the constitution ; of Ohio, which shall repeal the 7th sec. of the loth article, and forbid all State officers to take an oath to support the constitution of tho ' United States; witii such mav appear expedient to other measures as effect the peaceful wit hdrawal of Ohio troni tlie federal Union." Tlie presentation of this petition gave rise to a warm debate, but not a member expressed himself in favor of its sentiments, and many ob jected to its reception at all. It was, however finally referred to the committee on Federal Relations. Ci'rixg Jaindhe. M. Bernard, a French chemist, has, it is said, demonstrated, by several experiments, that the white of eggs can only be assiuiulated or converted into food for the human body through the intervention of the liver, (iaided by this fact, Dr. Giesler, of Go ettingen, has suggested its employment in the treatment of jaundice. If the digestion of the albumen of eggs tend to rouse the action of the liver, it will necessarily restore tlie secretion of bile and cure jaundice.

At a depth of one hundred and fifty-hinc feet, decomposed oyster shells have been found in Table Mountain. A ... i t 1 curious article ot real soap lias aiso uecn un covered, which closely resembles Cast'sSe soap,' and moreover, answers an excellent purpose for washing. Specimens have been exhibited all over the State, and it is a fixed fact that a, mountain of soap exists in California. By what process the ingredients were thrown together, it is impossible to say; but the article is now actually extensively used in the moun tains, and it has been siitiicicutly tried in the city to prove that there is no mistake about it.
