Thia he did under the seducement of Pitt, and with the promise that he would divide the money with him and take him to a iree State. After the murder, according to the negro s state ment they sewed the body in a tent cloth, adding oroe'larre stones to make it sink, and all hands pro ceeded towards Elizabethtown. On coming toRock fish creek, the dead body was thrown into a deep place where it sunk. They then prowededto Eliza beth, where Pitt bought two horses for 500, and bought a negro, and treated the negroes to whatever thev wanted. . ... op at Rocky Mount, Edgecombe county, at which place Pitt was well acquainted, and made a great solute with his money ; but on being questioned, did not appear to give plausible accounts of the circum stances of his sodden transition from poverty to wealth. From the Goldsborough Republican of the 18th, we learn that Pitt showed large sums of money , supposed to be eirht or ten thousand dollars, and told different stories as to how he got it. Finding the place get ,inr too hot for him. he left the negroes and taking theassumed name ol Garret, .(another negro trader,) he took the cars northward, and was heard of last at Petersburg. , After the flight of Pitt, the negroes were taken up and legally examined in regard to the whole matter, when The man confessed as we have before stated. The nearoes have been brought to Fayetteville, and lodged ia jail three women ami a boy, nd Damon the murderer. . e n Pitt is described as about 23 years of age, of large frame, stoop-shouldered, bow-legged, light complex ion, eyes and hair, freckled, white eye-brows and On VVeJnesday last, after the news reached here in an authentic shape, a Coroner's jury was empannelled by John J. Philips, and ptoceded to the place on Rockfish creek described by the negro, and alter drag gin with hooks, found the body a short distance be fow".McNeill'8 bridge. It was brought to Fayette ville, and identified by Rev. C. F. Harris, by John M. Rose and J. W. Reid, as the body of Tilghman Hunt, which being satisfactory to the Jury, a verdict was rendered that the deceased came to bis death by blows inflicted by some person or persons unknown to them. The deceased has no family, and is about 40 years old. The following were the jury : James Kyle, Jr., A. Williamson. Maj. C. Lotterloh, VV. R. Love, Alex. McPherson, G. VV. Carver, A. S. Brown. John T. Vriht, A. M. Johnson, Robt. Johnson, S. S. Arey, After mat we nave no iracc - j William L. Callais. The place where the murder was comraiUed has been discovered by the marks of blood. It is not far from the residence of Mr. Thomas H. Massey. The watch of the deceased was left in his pocket. Shou'd Pitt be arrested in time for Cumberland May Court, the trial will then take place. A reward of $100 has been offered by the Governor for his arrest." We think it probable, from what we have heard in relation to the matter, that Pitt has been arrested ere this in New York or Washington City. OHIO SENATOR. Benjamin F. Wade Freesoil Abolition Whig, has been elected United States Senator from Ohio for six years. The New York Tribune thus notices his election : . 'So Benjamin F. Wade, was elected the first United States Senator from the Western Reserve, within our recollection. Judge Wade is a Free Soil Whig, and a determined opponent if the Fugitive Slave Lam, but ha never per ceived that kit Free Soil principle could be promoted by abandoning and opposing the IVhig party, of which he was recently a candidate, in opposition to the Free Soil party, which carries all before it in his secticn. He was an early and decided supporter of General Taylor for President, yet he is now elected by the aid of the Free Soil votes." Here is proof conclusive as to Mr. Wade's posi tion and opinions. But we have more proof, taken from the Ohio Statesman, printed on the spot. That paper says : " From the course the whig took by the votes published last night we presume no one will be sur prised at any result that might follow. Mr. Wade, who made one of the bitterest speeches last tall against the Fugitive Slave law, is elecfled United States Senator for six years from the 4th inst., and by the aid of whin volet! So much fur Fillmore and his whig -administration ! so much for whig pretences in coax ing certain democrats to abuse free-soilers, promis ing to stand by them ! The result is a bright com-, mentary on whig politics, and those who have been fooled will have ample time to reflect." The Statesman is concerned because the Fillmore men had induced some of the Democrats to "abuse free-soilers" and had then " fooled " them by elect ing Wade. That paper is one of the organs of the Democratic party of Ohio, and is opposed to the fugitive-slave law. We can have no fellowship with it. We hold it up lo general indignation, as an ene my to the peace of the country and the perpetuity of the Union. ' The Ohio State Journal a strong Whig organ "admits that Mr. Wade is a Freesoiler; but it asserts at the same time that " nearly all the Whigs of that Slate are of the same class, and therefore Mr. Wade is not marked with any distinctive peculiarity." We suppose the next election of Senator we shall have to chronicle, will be that of Mr. Sumner, of Massachusetts. DEATH OF JOHN S. SKINNER. The Baltimore Correspondent of the Washington Union of the Slst instant, says : "I regret to learn that John S. Skinner, Esq., ed itor of The Plough, Loom, and Anvil," met with a most serious accidental the Baltimore city post office this morning. He had been in Postmaster Maddox's room on business, and was passing through the post office to go out the private entrance on Noith street. The two doors, one leading to the street and the oth er to the cellar, being side and side, he opened the cellar-door in mistake, and fell headforemost down the stairs, about ten feet, into the cellar. He was taken up insensible and carried to the postmaster's room, where he now lies, and is receiving medical attention. He has a severe cut on his head, fracturing his skull, and is bruised in various parts of his body. Whilst writing, I regret to add, I learn that the phy sieians in attendance pronounce him to be dying, all hopes of his recovery being given lip." - t . High Water iw Alabama. We learn from the Uemopolis (Marengo county) Jlrgut, of the 25th ul timo, that the river has been about two feet higher Uhat place this than last winter, and lacked about three feet of the high-water mark in 1833. The Ar Em says ; -" The damage done to plantations from ih effects the freshet is almost incalculable.

Seddon for re-election to Congress : . , y " We spent some hours yesterday in the Democrat ic Convention for this district, assembled at the Ex change to nominate a candidate for Congress. -It ia with pleasure, and pride that we declare that in no political deliberation did we ever pass a more satis factory and agreeable time. The full proceedings shall appear to-morrow in the meantime we can only announce the general result, viz : that James A. Sed don, Esq., was re-nominated by unanimous acclama tion. .The Convention was large and most respect able every county in the district was well reptesen- ted the entire deliberations were conducted with entire harmony and good feelingeloquent pledges of fidelity to the cause, and nothing but the cause, and in favor of the nomination of Mr. Seddon, were made by Mr. J. L. Gordon of Louisa, Dr. E. L. Nel son ol Hanover, Messrs. Win. Old, Jr. of Powha tan, John B. Young and N. F. Bowe of Henrico, James H. Cox of Chesterfield, and Wm. Wallace of Richmond City. The Convention was admirably presided over by our friend Dr. Crump of Powhatan, whom we are glad to find as vigorous, ardent and en thusiastic as ever 'assisted by Thomas Ritchie, jr., and John Lynch,' as Secretaries. A committee, consisting of Messrs. J. H. Cox, J. L. Gordon, and J. B. Young, was appointed to no tify Mr. Seddon of his unanimous nomination, and request his acceptance of the tendered honor. Dur ing the retirement of the committee, Senator Doug las of Illinois, who was accidentally present, was loudly called for from all quarters. He modestly ac knowledged the compliment, ascended the rostrum and delivered a deeply interesting speech, replete with sound sentiments and breathing the mcst fer vent devotion to the noble principles of the Demo cratic party. Touching briefly on the vexed question of the day, he strongly and eloquently dwelt on the happy omen of the union of the Democratic 'party every where, as developed on this occasion by the unanimous re-nomination of" Mr. Seddon, whose tal ents and character he eulogized in high terms. The event of this day he justly regarded as a most impor tant indication of the future enthusiastic rally of the Democratic party for its principles and its Cause. He rejoiced that no test had been made on the adjustment question thatby-gones were by-gones, and that such a wise and judicious and conciliatory course was the bright precursor of a glorious triumph of the old is sues of the Republican party. In the course of his remarks, Judge Douglas announced the emphatic opinion that the fugitive-slave law, which was in di rect accordance with the letter of this Constitution, would be faithfully carried out by the Northern De mocracy, and thut the abolition fanatics, who had shown themselves false to God and to man, would jet be prostrated by public setiinent. Senator Dou glas' speech was received with unmingled approba tion and, on motion of Col. John Rutherford, the unanimous thanks of the convention were tendered him for his able and interesting remarks. He then mixed with the assemblage and received the cordial greetings of the unterrified, the whole-sould Demo crats of the District. After some refreshment by the company, Mr. Sed don was introduced and warmly received. He speke for some time, and we never knew him to speak bet ter or more satisfactorily. We shall not attempt even a meagre outline of his address. He repeated the personal considerations which made him averse to public life, but declared that he could not fail to be moved by the very high compliment which had been rendered him, and he could not decline to make the sacrifice, bv accepting the post tendered him at the hands of such a constituency. He dwelt briefly on the stirring scenes in Congress, where he had done what he honestly and sincerely belived to be his duty and he was still convinced that he had pursued the course properly demanded by the considerations of duly to the South and to Virginia. He should con tinue to follow the honest convictions of his duty. Mr. Seddon sternly repelled the stigma of "disunion ist,"and charged home upon our opponents, whoare making new issues, under the guise of no-parly, &c, that they weie the real disuniotists in pursuing a course, the tendency of which was to produce divi sion at Hie South. He complimented tue accom plished Senator from Illinois, whom he had not had the pleasure of hearing on this occasion referred to the beneficent wisdom of the measures of Democratic policy, now made triumphant by experience and in voked every Democrat in the Dietrict to come to his aid, in vindicating the success of our noble cause. His remarks were received with warm approbation. Whatever doubts may have been entertained, the universal satisfaction and enthusiasm, developed yes terday, gave us the strongest grounds for confidence, that the Convention have selected " an invincible candidate." A similar belief seemed to prevail with every delegate present, and it is in the hands of them selves, and the duty of every Democrat in the Dis-, trict, to work zealously and see that the good work is accomplished. From the peculiar circumstances of the case, we feel like Mr. Young of Henrico, when he said that he never could believe that John Minor Botts could beat James A. Seddon ! The whole action yesterday is a bright harbinger of Democratic union and success throughout Virginia at the next election. In every district and county the noble example set here, of forgetting by-gones and rallying on old principles, will be followed up and, we sincerely believe, with the most cheering results. It is in fact not a little singular, that we have now in the field (with the exception of the Wheeling Dis trict) exactly the same candidates as two years ago, when the Democrats elected fourteen and a half mem bers of Congress. Shall not the Wheeling District be again carried, and shall we not witness the same cheering result 1 " Disappearance of Col. Motz. After a most dili gent and constant search, which has now lasted 12 days, the remains of our esteemed fellow citizen, Col. Andrew Motz, have not yet been found. Our citi zens generally, all having the physical strength to be of service, have engaged in this search. As Odd Fellows, Sonsof Temperance,Cliristians,and citizens, all have exerted themselves to the utmost. The wa ter in the rnill-pond has been drawn off, every foot of the bottom of the stream for miles below, has been closely examined, and, yesterday, search was made in the pond above his factory, where he could not bp, unless his body was thrown in at one place and his hal and cloak at another. This distressing event is shrouded in mystery which may never be unravelled ; and the only conso lation left to his family and numerous friends, is to be found in submission to the will of an All-wise Pro vidence. Hia Ladv. whose sufferings none can know, is now supported by the presence of her aged parrents, who have come to share her troubles, and, if possi ble, lighten her affliction. Where all have exerted themselves to the utmost. it would appear invidious to distinguish any $ hut the efforts made by Messrs. Triplett, Abernathy, An thony, Reinhardt, Moore, fehutord. the ttamsours, me Jettons, Roseman, Canslers, and others, to recover the body of their lost friend, have been almost super human. Lincoln Republican of Thursday last. Mr. Calhoun's Works. The Columbia South Carolinian supplies the following information on this subject: - ' - " We understand that Mr. Cralle has completed stereotype plates for the execution of the first of these works.' It i stated that the first volume will comprise Mr. Calhoun's elaborate Disquisition on Government, and a Discourse on the Constitution and Government of the United States, in which are displayed, in a systematic manner, the author's opinions upon the whole subject of th philosophy of government. These treatises, it ia understood, were begun many years ago, and, though they had not received the ultimate revision which was intended, they are very complete, and by the careful and judicious editing of Mr. Cralle, his intimate friend and confidential secretary, will perhaps appear, as perfect in all their parts as if re written fcy Mr. Calhoun himself. The series of the entire works of thia great man, together with his bi ography, written by Mr. Cralle, will it is thought, be embraced in six volumes." There is some' reason to hope that the telegraphic announcement of the death of Major Noah was pre mature. k It is now said tbat. although not dead, he is in. extreme danger. We hope he may survive to serve his country many years. . 1 1 " .'' i Washington Union of Saturday last. ; .r;' Fot the "North .Carolina Standard. t.yy., CONGRESSIONAL ELECTION. Ma. Editor: The people of the Sixth Congres sional District will soon be called on to go to the polls and vote for some individual to represent them in the House of Representatives of the next Con gress of: the United States and it is therefore high ly important for the success of the Democratic party that we should begin to organize our forces and pre pare for the conflict, lest by chance the enemy against whom we have Bo long contended successfully should unexpectedly come upon us and storm the old fortress to which the Democracy of the whole country have hitherto beeh accustomed to look with bo much con fidence for success. There never has been a time in the history of our country when it was more impor tant to the Democratic party to be thoroughly organ ized under the lead of her" most distinguished and talented standard bearers. For we are constantly re ceiving fresh intelligence of efforts now rapidly pro gressing to strike down the old party linsS and form a new party to be known by the name ot a Union party. Their opponents they wish to designate by the name of Disunionists, in order that they may the more readily deceive the unsuspecting. I hese ef forts, let it be reeollected, are principally being made by the old Federalists, contending under disguse for the very same principles in effect which caused its signal defeat in 1800, to-wit : consolidation. Be not deceived, my countrymen, the dress is only" changed, the voice is the same. The Democratic party has al. ways been the strict constructionists ol the Constitu tion, the advocates of the rights of the States res pectively, and the only true friends of the Union, formed by our fathers, and has thus tar generally main tained a predominancy in our Government, and must continue so to do until the true spirit of republicanism which pervaded the breasts of our sires shall have been completely extinguished. '. N i true hearted Democrat is yet tired of the name. Though we may diffVr as to the remedy to be appli ed for the evils that unfortunately exist in our Gov ernment, brought oil chiefly as 1 believe by the few short days of Whig misrule, it is a matter of heart felt congratulation that we are together as one man with regard lo the rights that rest with the people of the States respectively. We are no consolidationisu. We are not for nnliinited powers in the general Gov ernment. We are for no loose construct on of the powers granted by the Constitution of our happily framed government. Why then should we hesitate and stand still, and see our party completely demolished? Will we do it 1 No is the universal response," I feel confident, of the Democracy of the Sixth Congress ional District. Let others do as they may, this Dis trict will be found doing herduty. Let us begin then, brother Democrats, by making due and timely pro vision in each County for a general Convention to be held at Nashville, the usual place, at the proper time, in order that our difficulties may all be settled ami cably in relation to the particular individual to whom our trusts must be confided. Let our divisions be settled with perfect good feeling, s that we can go forth conquering and to conquer with unanimity in our ranks, and no one can doubt for a moment of our success. In this manner, and in this only, can we preserve that good teeling of brotherly-love and friend ship indispensably necessary for certain success, and which should always exist among co-laborers for the same noble ends the good of the people individual ly and the welfare of our common glorious country. WAKE. DEMOCRATIC MEETING IN BERTIE. At a Meeting of a portion of the Democratic parly of Bertie County, held at the Court House in the town of Windsor, on Monday the 17th March, 1851, on motion, W.

Mr. Clinffman of North Carolina, passed through Columbia, the capital of the sister State of South Carolina, and received a very warm greeting from the students of the State Uollege at that place, as will be seen from the annexed paragraph, taken from the Telegraph t A Worthy Tribute. When it was known on Tu esday morning that Mr. Clingman was in town, the students of our col lege appointed a committee to wait on him, with their respects and compliments, and so licit a visit to them at the college. The committee, consisting of Messrs. Goodman, Chalmers and Mel ton, immediately discharged their duty, but Mr. Cling man, although highly gratified at this compliment, was compelled to decline the invitation, owing to his brief stay. Our young friends have honored them selves in thus offerinsrnn appropriate honor to a true- hearted citizen and noble representative of a sister State, so closely allied to us in name and interests. , Boston, March ; 19 Another attempt was made to-day to elect a United States Senator, and like the previous ones tailed. l ne comesi wan Between wir Winthrop and Mr. Summer.

This afflicting Providence of God has left a large family to mourn the loss of a fond and devoted mother, a kind and indul gent mistress, and a true and exemplary Christian. Mrs. Brooks had been a member of the Baptist Church for several years previous to her death, and she often spoke of the sustaining power of Faith. She appeared to be conscious, in her afflictions, of her approaching dissolu tion, and perfectly resigned to the will of God. A few days before her death she called her children around her bed, and spoko to them of the importance of preparing to meet her in a better world.
