It may seem strange to some: but in these days of "moral insanity" and political intrigue and corruption, the acts of public men, and those to whom is delegated investigative powers and authority, are not to be weighed in the ordinary balances of justice and right Shrewd men, wary diplomatists and adroit managers are latter-day "committee men.' Open manly, frank, independent action is no characteristic of the ambitious politician; and we are therefore not at all surprised when find the committee, with direct and positive proofs of neglect' incompetency misapplication of the public money; deliberate forfeiture oi charter in several seperate and distinct particu lars; building up financial monopolies for the benefit of individuals to the disparagefcvent Of State bonds, and acting altogether in direct contrariety io the stipulations of their act of organization on the part of the Company, dc -daring that they "do not wish to be understood s attributing any moral delinquency to amy (me For our own part wc can sec no legitiwtnt'e ihK-itition of the "powers" of the committee to investigate and fully report upon th-e financial condition of the Company, its assets; liabilities., expenditures aud future prospects, as well as nuHg'eraeKt atul the disposal of all the monies placed under its control..

Whatever appears under our editoral head is strictly editor! mat ter, and we alone are responsible for it.

The Parlor Maga zine ought to be in the hands of every lady rea der (married ladies we mean, of course, for it is quite unfashionable now-a-days for young ladies to read; and an educated and accom plished girl is voted "a blue aud a bore" by the shallow pated coxcombs who constitute by far the largest class of our "visiting young gentle men.")

No imputation is cast upon the capacity of those gentlemen to conduct the afTairs of the institution, unless it be a covert insinuation exhibiting a pitiable lack of manliness; no reflection is made Upon the intelligence, the integrity or the probity of the appointees but they are Democrats, Loco Focos, and some of them belong to that Unfor tunate class which does not altogether own as many slaves as docs Kenneth Ilaynef individu ally. Some writer in a recent issue of the Hal eigh Register, who is better acquainted with the names than the capacities and educational accomplishments of his favorites, has enumefa ted quite a host of individuals, belonging to the Oldliueamericanwhignatiotial party; who might have beencafled to that trust with honor to the Institution.

Independent. Nice: is'nt it? It seems that our friend, the Doctor, is not only a poet, philosopher, disciple of Galen and John Wesley, anti-snowball radi cal reformer, and Wilmington and Weldon Railroad denunciator, but a satirist who es chews the "retort courteous" and descends to the cook's scullions for onions and garlic with which to season his metaphors.

Tne ishevHIc Spectator and the Pa rifle Rail Road. Our cotemjwrary of the Spectator seems to have obtained free ticket over the Pacific Rail Road, and is riding back and forth upon the strength of his permit, just because, per haps, he has nothing else to do. In his last issue he devotes several columns to a rehash of obsolete charges npon the Democracy; reitera tes his. epithets of "rascality," "fraud" &c; be comes denunciative, satirical and indignant by turns, and anon pugnaciously doubles np his editorial fist, and, shaking it at the Carolinian, wants to know 'who struck Billy Patterson?' After ridiculously asserting, or "leaving the inference on the minds of his readers," that the Richmond Enquirer, Raleigh Standard, Charles ton Standard and other leading Democratic papers, have admitted and themselves proven the charge of fraud, corruption, chicanery and rascality on the part of the Cincinnatti conven tion, the Spectator thus gasconadeth towards us: "As to the term "unmanly," we assure the editor that while we do not boast of a burning desire for personal difficulties, while we would avoid them so far as we could in safety to our person and honor, we did not intend to shield ourselves from amenability to any one who considered himself personally injured by any thing we said. We intended to make no per sonal attack upon any one, but if there be those who are so anxious for personal conflicts as to consider themselves personally offended, then we are personally responsible. We do not ask the Democratic party to screen us from rcsonsibility." So the Spectator man holds himself "person ally responsible"! Well, we should avail our self of that 'responsibility' had those taproom epithets been applied to ourself individually, or even had they come from a journalist whose editorial courtesy and gentility rendered him amenable to the laws of outraged propriety and trampled troth. We have no disposition to: enter upon aw argument with the editor of that journal respecting the splenetic charges he has seen fit to make npon the Democratic party. They are unworthy oar serious attention. Btit we can assure him that if he imagines Ug at all frightened at his gasconading bnllyism, or con ceires that We feef the slightest trepidation be- cause of his belligerent attitude towards us, most signally and emphatically mistaken.

Now it came to pass during the feign of Thomas, the son of him who was called Drags- that divers of the laws and other matters per.' tabling to the liind became distasteful to the people. 2. And the people murmured, saying one to another: Behold how that the land is sufferintr by reason of the great tribute which the laws command us to pay into the treasury. 3. And behold also the soil yields unto ns no abundance, and the fruits thereof bless not our children with plenty, 4. Now therefore let ns call together our wise men and the seers and the prophets of our people that they may counsel with the riller wherein these soi'e evils shall be cast out and good things for us put iu their stead. o, Then the wise men and the prophets and the lawgivers of the land answered with one accord; yea, verily the. land seemeth accursed and the laws thereof are burdens to the people: 6. But the ruler can do nothing of himself, therefore will we lend unto him our wisdom, and the cunning of our understanding shall be given him whereby he may destroy the etil things spoken of and do that which seemeth good in the eyes of his people. 7. Then girt they up their loins, and hasten ed one with another unto the place wherein dwelt the ruler, and "which is called the City of Oaks by reason of the cedars and multitude of other trees growing therein. 8. And they gat themselves together at the house of the ruler; and he spread before them a great feast, and wine therewith even as water in its abundance. 9. And tbe wise men and the prophets par took of the food which the ruler had provided i btit tvhen he wonld have fain persuaded them to drink of t lie wine and be merry, they ans wered him saying: 10. It is not meet, most noble ruler, that the fathers and law-givers and councillors of the people should drink wine and become as fools Hu the sight of men 11. Verily the tine prodttceth a pleasant fruit, and the juice thereof sorely tempteth the mouth; but lo, the corn of the field hath also its wine, and the reaper gathereth not his mas' ter's rye for bread alone. 12. Therefore we pray thee excuse us lest ws become foolish with much wine, and do that which is unseemly and bringeth shame and red ness of eyes. 13. And the ruler marvelled greatly at their wisdom and their righteousness, saying, of a verity I perceive that ye have understanding and your virtue is as a cuirass of brass about you. 14. Xot When the morning had come thej gathered together in the great Sanhedrim wherein the wise men of other days were wont to counsel and make laws for the people; and behold there was much contention amongst them who should sit npon the throne and guide their cOHnsellings. 15. Howbeit one of the wise men, the son of a prophet, whose, tongue was smooth as oi and his words sweeter than honey in the comb, spake to tbe multitude saying: 18- Why are ye troubled greatly because of so email a matter? Is not a lamb better than a hissing serpent, and sheep more worthy than hungry wolves? 17. - Wherefore let ns be as lambs, yea even as sheep which hare na strife and fall net ont one with another. 18. Aud let us cause to sit npon the throne a gentle shepherd whose staff shall point as to green pastures aud beside tbe still waters of peace. 19. And tbe words of the wise roan seemed good in tbe sight of tbe prophets and law giv ers j and they chose from among them a yonng man who wits a shepherd, and bad? him sit heuPn tfte throne. J 2ft. And the yonng man lifted np his voice art' Bent and spake saying: Behold I am not worthy of so great honor; howbeit I will not say nay lest I displease ye and the people wax wroth be cause thereof. 21. Then the wise meu and prophets and doctors of the law began disputing One with another what great things should be done for the people, and a great tumult arose in the Sanhedrjm. 22. Aud the shepherd waxed exceeding wroth thereat, and smote upon the throne with his staff, crying' with a loud voice: 23. Belinld inv shpoti li n n Lppnmp n! foiir- ;n 1- ' . , . , , i sting one another. 24. Then, being rebuked, they Were silent, aud afterwards consulted wisely and peacefully about the troubles which were vexing the land 23. And it came to pass that divers of the scribes and pharisees jourucyed thither from distant parts, and Ihey came into the Synago gue where sat the Sanhedrim.- 20.

Are we not wiser thaii the publicans and sinners .whom ye say have sent us these words? 31 Go ye your ways and do that which seemeth good in your eyes; but torment us not, lest we do that which is evil. 32 15 it t the scribes and phnrisoes took no heed unto what the wise men said) and they remained thre many days connod!inr. 33. And it came to pass that the people who dwelt along a great river which flowed through that country beeame wroth because of divers j matters pertaining thereto. 34. Aud they spake among oneanother say ing: Behold, here is water even as the wares 1 of the sea; and corn and fruits of the earth which bring gold and silver. But the wise men, even those who have gone before, have choked up the waters and prophecied great things therefrom, to the end that ships might come up from the great deep and bring to us the treasures of distant lands. 36.
