We atferiilcd tltgt Superior Court of Robeson this week, and heard the discussion of Mr Dockkicy on the part of the Bki.i. Evkuett ticke!,aml Mr. Nor mknt for Dorc.LAS. The Hon. Warkex Winsi.ow being present, re plied in defence of th" national candidates, Messrs lKKt'k.iM:ii;E ifc Laxe. Mk Dockery opened the ilisenssion for Bki.i. in a very fine speech, the buiden of liis song 1 eing (!iM;nion; saidtheDf uirciatic i-.viy was a tiiM.nhn j aity. M'e : ppeal to the l: ih c-tm ocrats for a refutation of Mr D's charge, webelive them to be for "union" to a man. lie eulogized Mr Douglas, and thought him altogether a "giant," quoted from the Raleigh Standard, to prove that he was a traitor to the Democratic part-. The SH.nd urd bore the date of i858 ! He said there was no salvation for Southern men by squatter sovereignty, j but failed to show, or did not attempt to show, what the docil ities of his part- upon that question was. He forgets that Mr Rem, said ho was not preptueJ to say, but Congress had that the constitutional power to abolish l vei-y in the District of Columbia and i.i the Territories, and th.it according to his votes in Congress, he is not sure but negro slaves have the right to petition Congress to abolish slavery. He spoke so'iio time upon the 4Atherton Resolutions;" c.dled Mr Atherton an abolitionist and a Northern democrat. He blamed the democratic party for u" the ills the political tiesh is heir to. Mr. Norment spoke at some length iu defluse of Mr. Douglas, and almost with tears in his eyes be Hcached them follow Douglas, (to the slaughter.) A few Democrats present who were favorable to the Little Giant, went away determined to support the good old Democratic party, with which they hae fought for years. We are sorry that time, this week, will not permit us to report the able and forcible speech of o'.ir Representative, Mr. Winslow. His hih toned deportment to his opponents won for him as it has on many other occasions, the repeated and earnest attention of his audience. Mr. Wins low needed no new messengers of destruction to put to liiht his opponents to flight. With the calm, coid bravery of an experienced general, he took possession of the enemy's guns, and turned the shot with which they had charged them, for the purpose of routing him and his part', upon their retreating flank, until we could almost see Messrs. Dockery an 1 Norment plead for quarter. We will not at tempt to give his speech now ; it would do him in justice, but we w ill publish it in our next. It is suf fic"ent to sayjthat his able advocacy of Breckinridge and Lane, with the contrast of his calm, respectful treatment of the opposing factions, as compared with the speeches of his opponents, brought home conviction to the minds of his audience, and added votes from the Bell party to ours. Mr. Norment,on the part of Donglas, felt his hopes of carrying the town of Lumbcrton for Douglas, grow small and beautifully less, and Mr. Dockery felt thsLt"Iciabod' asw written upon the prospects of Ms candidates. We know that Robeson is sure for Breckinridge ana Lane in November, and although Robeson is put down as one of the Douglas counties, mark our woads, he will not get fifty votes iu it. We were conversing with a number of reported Douglas lea ders, who arc out and out for Breckinridge and L: i and of the Delegates appointed to Raleigh by te Douglas meeting, we know that one half are Breck inridge men. On Tuesday evening there was a Grand Rally of the Breckinridge forces. Hon. S. J. Person addres sed the meeting in one of his happiest efforts. He is one of our ablest speakers and never fails to con- . 1 .1 vmce faith. the erring and establish tne timm, m He was followed by Julius W.

We have but little to say to our friend of the Democrat upon the above, except to correct a mis statement. We can only relieve his veracity in this instance at the expense of his intelligence We have never changed our course in regard to Mr. Douglas except to frvor him, we are no morrf opposed to him to-day than we were two years since w hen he first made public his insidious dogma of squatter sovereignty, our object in taking down the names of Breckinridge and Lane, was to unite the people upon the only candidate who could de feat Lincoln, be he whomsoever he might ; Our ob--ti-rnT tbo mimes afrain was to tell the JUl l. Ill 11- lll.-H.'p, - " o people who that candidate is, So th-tt we -have not changed a whit. We took them do.vn for tin sake of the Cnion and we put them up for the same Object. As to the injurious effect the support of Breckin ridge and Lane, w id have upon Mi Douglas, we will leave that question to be decided in November nevt and we will nledre our most sacred honor that in seven Counties where the Carolinian circu lates, one of them being the Douglas Banner Coun- tv. (MooreA Mr. Douurlas will not receive oOO votes. Mr. Douglas is not more ignorant of the existence and value of tha advocacy of this humble sheet than he is of the Raleigh hand organ of the Ex-ego-'v!Q Committee, for at Raleigh he particularly inquired of a gentleman from this District whether this paper would not advocate his claims. We would have done so had there been a chance of Mr D's election, and if we had, we sheuld have had to try to make the people believe he would be elec ted. It is now some six weeks till the election, too long to tell lies every week. If we should conclude to take up the business of lying some week or too before the campaign closes, we 4will hoist Mr. D's. name. THE FAYETTEVILLE CAROLINI AN. We see it announced in some of our exchanges that thi- paper has hoisted the names of Breckin ridge ami Lane for the Presidency and Vice Presi dency. This is rather a singular announcement to us. When we used to see the Carolinian it was a Breckinridge paper, and was, we believe one of the first papers in the State to run up their names to its mast-head. Lately, we do not get that paper, and we are therefore puzzled to understand this late announcement. We thought our friend Sinclair was and had been constant in the faith. How about j it ? Ealeigh Press. j We do not know why our paper has not reached the Press. It has been sent regularly ; had it reach ed the Press, its Editor would have understood our position. While we took down, temporarily, the names of Breckinridge an 1 Lano. we still kept up tho electoral ticket. Our hope being that some ar rangement would have been made to co-alescc our party. The Douglasites, bent on ruin, presented no such plan. Our course of duty was plain. We floated again the names of our candidates, and shall continue to do so, until victory shall, as it will, perch on onr eagles. ROBESON COURT. . Tins tribunal lias been in session curing this week.

Lauds. Mr. Parton tells the following storv of Gen. Jackson's wife : , AVhen Gen. Jackson was a candidate for the Pres idency in 1828, not only did the X'a,ty opposed !to him abuse him for his public acts, which, if uncon stitutional or violent, were a legitimate subject of reprobation, but they defamed the character of his wife. On one occassion, a newspaper published in Nashville was laid upon the General's table. He gl meed over it, and his eyes fell upon an article in which the character ot Mrs. Jackson was violently assailed. So soon as he had read it, he "sent for his trusty servant Dunwoodie. V Saddle my- horse." said he to him in a .whisjler, "and put my holsters on him." Mrs. Jackson watched him, and though she heard not a wrd. she thought she saw mischief in his eyes. The Gen eral went out after a few moments, when she took up the papt-r and understood everything. She ran out to the south gate of the yard of the IlenuiUtge, by which the General had to pass. She had not been there more than a few seconds before the Gen eral rode up w ith the countenance of a madman. She placed herself before his horse, and cried ut : 40, General, dDn't go to Nashville! Let the poor editor live. Let the p or editor live." i "Let mo alone," he replied ; "how came you to know w hat I am going for ?" She answered,: "L'saw it all in this paper after you went out ; put up your horse and go back " ' He replied furiously, "But I will go get but of my way!" ' Instead cf doing this she grasped his bridle 'with' both hands. ; He cried to her, ''I sa-, let go my horse; I'll have his heart's blood the villain that reviles my wife shall not live." She grasped the reins but the tighter, and began to expostulate w ith him, saying that he Wagjthe one w ho onght to be angry, but that she forgave her persecutors from the bottom of her heart, and pra'- eu tor tnem mat ae sno.ui'1 forgiyjtjait i'ojqc to be foriven. At last, by ncr re; trades and her tears, she so Worked uponbyf hus band that he scemen mollified to a certain extent. She wound up by saying, "No, General, y Oat shall not take the lit ot even myr revuer you dare not do it, for it is written, 'Vengeance is mine, I will re pay, saith the Lord !" P - The iron-nerved hero gave way before the earnest f pleading of his beloved wife, and he replied 4'I yield to you : hut had it not been for von. and the words of the Almighty, the wretch should not have lived an hour- ALONE WITH THE DYING. It would be difficult to ibid in the whole range of fiction a more affecting incident than is contained in the following extract from a letter, written by a British seaman to his wife. It was his first service as a soldier, he having been ;sent on shore with a boat's crew of marines to silence a -fort -and take some guns : " - . . "We dispersel at a few hundred yards distance from the beach to keep - the coastr clear while- the boat's crew made prizes of the guns. The enemy had advantage of the wood, and a so , knowing the country well ; and a troop of them showed in adva nce. We were ordered to fire. I took steady aim, and fired at my man, at about s.xty yards. He fell like a stone. At the same time a broadside from the- -went in among the trees, and the enemy disappeared, we could sc ireely tell how. I felt as though I must go up to him and see whether he was dead or alive, lie lay quite still, and I was more afraid of him than when he stood facing me a few minutes before, It is a strange feeling to come over you all at once that vou have killed a man. He had unbuttoned his iacket. and was pressing his hand over the front' of Ins chest, where tne wound was. lie oreatneu nard and the Wool poured from the wound, as also from his mouth every breathhejlook. Hus face was as white as death, and his eyes looked is big and bright as he turned them and stared at me. I shall never forget it. He was a fine younn fellow, not more than five and twenty. I went uoivn on my knees besitio nim, ana my" nreasr ien so iuu as though my own heart would burst. He had a real English face and did not look like an enemy. What I felt I never can tell; but it my hie vould. have sav ed his, I believe I should have giveiii it.- - I laid his head on my knee, and he grasped hold of mV hand and tried to speak, but his voice wasgon. I eoitUt; ...1 . ,- not ten a woru ne saiu, anu every .time ne wentijo speak the blood poured out, so I knew it would soon be over. I am not ashamed tosay that I was worse than he, for he never shed a tear, and I couldn't help it. His eyes were closed when a gun was fired from the to order aboard, and that aroused him. He pointed to the beach, wbeie the boat was. just pusiung on witn ine guns wnicn we nad taken, and were our mariners were waiting to man the second beat, and then he pointed to the wod wher the ene my was concealed. Poor fellow ! he little thought how I shot him down. I was wondering how I could leave him to die, and no one near him, when he had someth 'ng bke a convulsion for a moment, and then his face paled over, and without a single sigh he was gone. I trust the Almighty has receiv ed his soul. I laid his head gently down on the jjrass Jnd left him. THE MORMONS WILL NOT LEAVE SALT LAKE VALLEY. - The Mormons it would seem, have no present in tention of leaving Salt Lake Arailey. Th.-y are busy erecting in every settlement substantial buildings for council houses, court houses, meeting houses and school houses, Grist and saw mills, nail facto ries, founderies, and every kind of machine shops are becoming quite common. A few miles from the city-, Brigham is laying out a nursery with a mil lion tret s, which he calculates will in ten years turn him in as many dollars. The building of the Great Temple was recommended, and every spare team isjiauling the massive rock from Cattonf road into the cit'y. Of the magnitude of this aaiflce. our readers will form some notion from tqte fact that the foundation alone cost $60,000, and k con tract has recently been concluded for the hauling of the rock for the basement story, a distance of ten miles, for $80,000. The buildiug is to cover an area ot 21,000 feet. POLITICAL ITEXS. C- 9, If butf littlTNforkd liv 4 G ex. Jackson's Noble Wife. Many of our pnbU te11 NeJ llhs- and I,ot you."

The ring linger, we see. is gone, but whether taken off at the time o.' the accident, or by the surgeon's ki ifc, we can't say ; not having an opportunity to say a word to the physicans. To the uaintiated, it would appear a work of impossiblity to save the hand or any part of it., though th. 'oolaess of the atmosphere may prove higlrly bcuc-licial towards such a remit.

When we lived in Connecticut, we recollect hearing a story that run in this wise : During his period of law study in the southestern portion of the State, he became acquainted with a young lady of prepos sessing appearance and more than ordinary accom plishments, a daughter of parents of the highest re spectability, 1 nd moving in the most fashionable circles of the viciuity. With her he entered one of his earliest pleas and commenced his first suit. That he was successful, is evident from the fact that, shortly after his admission to the bar, and hav ing obtained an honorable position and business con nection, arrangements for consummating the mar riage wei;e made, and all went on harmoniously until a short time before the appointed day. During his visit one evening, he remarked that he believed all necessary arrangements for the wedding were made, and the route for their bridal tour decided. He ad ded : "On our return we shall be obliged to de vote a short time to our friends here, after which, if you please, we will pay a visit to my old father and mother, and spend a few days w ith them." Now, La Fayette was always a good boy, and was taught to honor his father and mother, which early became to him a pleasure as well as a duty. He had re ceived from them words of love and encouragement, which had done for him without money (for they were poor) what money ctmld never have done, and through all his privations uud struggles to obtain an education and a position in life, he had been stimu lated and supported by the thought of the pleasure his success would give tin m, and he looked forward to the day when, with his chosen one, he should meet them beneath their humble roof and receive again their blessings, to be oue of the happiest he should ever experience. She then said: "MrFos- ideaTfrour people w hose manners and style of living are differ ent from those of your parents, and although I slmll make no objection to your proposed visit, I wish you to understand that I shall not expect to repeat it soon or often, and that I shall not desire to asso ciate with people of their class.' Nothing could have surprised him more than to hear these words from her lips. For a few minutes he walked the j room, seemingly7 half bewildered. Thrn taking'his hat in his hand, he turned, and, with words more j emphatic than refined, said: "Madam, I am giad 1 have found you out in time. Yeu may go to the d 1 !" The last we heard of the lady, she was still living, an ancient maiden, having seen this son of parents considered beneath her noiice, filling with honor the highest public offices to which bis fellow citizens could promote him. A Nf.w Weapon. A Springfield correspondent of the Hartford Times thus describes a new weapon Jus completed at the armory in that city: A heavy gun called the "Wall Rifle," has just been c..:i..i ..4. 1 , 1 .1 i;. lAlllbliUU .11 OiVIl J .11 1 k nil 1 1 LUlUC IHUUlttiivv v.v. j partment at Washington.

It is a breach-loading piece of the following dimensions: Length of barrel, four feet'; of stook, nineteen inches ; diameter of barrel at bree:h, two and three-eighth inches ; of muzzle, one and fifteen sixteenth inches. It carries a Minnie ball weighing half a pound, nineteen one hundredths of an inch in diameter. It is loadedjwitli 384 grains of powder. The barrel is of cast steel, with five grooves or rifles, ratchet form. The lock frame is different from that of other breech-loading pieces. It is hung on a pivot, and when closed presents a smooth surface, the machinery being inside. The gun is suspended on a pivot rod as a rest and to pre vent the recoil from affecting the shoulder. The weight of the gun is 80 pounds. It is intended wholly for wall service, to he used for picking off officers and such other purpo.-es. It is now being S experimented with by the Board of Ordinance at 1 Washington. . i 1$ ie of A Rattlesnake Ci i:e in two Horns, The Petersburg Express publishes the following from a reliable corresponded : , A carpenter, while engaged a few days ap-o in pulling down an old house, and in rcmoviug some of tne rotten timoets near uie ground, was intten bv a rattlesnake. In a few moments his finger was swollen to four times its natural size, ami a red streak commenced running up his hand and writ.

The Re publican says: Provisions w ere carried him by his little son, who" heboid that he was going to shoot himself and that he might go home and tell an older brother and an other man that whtn they heard the gun they must come to him. The little boy had not got4 to the house when the gun was heard, but on telling what he was instructed,they immediately went to the place and found Pearson already dead, shot through the head w ith a bullet, which had entered by the side of one ear, taking off a part of it, and came out at the other side higher up.
