rf cosmo- VrerV. - ninst be Prwrred RALEIGH: &' MR. JIILLEITS0BAT10N. The number of the Raleigh Register which was issued on the last 4th of Jo, contained the follow- ,nf. Vt u i , i.e cop of national glory, and national by M with waters of bitterness ? W hy Cs'thetocs in of civil war been sounded-the cry of has lhen tocsm jg the . . we knQW d'S.U "hrtiTr n?meto make it than when assembling to 2LiSii U.. birth day 'of the onlv true RepUb lie remaining on the globe. . If it be found that the existing excitement, which I,,, 'done so much to arouse the fears of the timid, ml 'startle even the boldest and most determined, las been caused by misstatement artfully got up to de- he the people from motives of personal ambition, ff. .1.0 authors of it meet with the highest punisli- ment the scorn and contempt of an insulted peo ple!" The above was no doubt intended as a sort of in troduction to the parly portion of Mr. Miller's Ora tion to he delivered that day. The Register was preparing .the mind of the community for what the KditorkneV would be uttered by the Orator, on a day common to all and the property and glory of all. We find nothing in the above extract of an enlarged or liberal character, but on the contrary, the existing ex citement is attributed to the friends of Southern rights, and an attempt is made to mark them as the enemies of the Union and of public order. In addi- .1 .1 f c-...lJ tion to this, our assailants in me tree iaies are unu, in so many wor.fs, that the existing excitement "has been caused by misstatements artfully got up to de. ceivethe people"; and in this way these vile fanat ics are encouraged in their work of insult and ag ression. VVe take this as the meaning and tenden cy of the above expression, because the Register is in the habit of denouncing what it calls Southern fa naticism, and because, furthermore, the" article from which these extracts are made, contains no hard tuords for the Freesoilers and Abolitionists the very men who caused the present excitement, and who are rush jnir this Republic to the gulf of ruin. Then came the oration. Portions of it, as we have heretofore stated, were in good taste and embodied sound senti ments: but much of it was devoted to an argument , oinst Slate sovereignty and to denunciations of fa- natics, disunionists and demagogues, " North and r:ols v enable, Uamel, and Ashe. 1 here is no op Soutk." Why these wholesale denunciations of ( position to these gentlemen, it is true, but then Southern men ? Did the orator give the history of, Joar vote may be necessary to defeat the schemes of i.I T 1 1 ... J . - their wrongs ? Did he show who and uhal had pla- cei the Union in peril? No such thing. He inclu ded the wronged in the same sweeping condemnation with the wrongdoers ; and that too after he had dem onstrated, as he thought, that the Southern Stales could find no safety out of the Union under any cir cumstances, no matter what they might be required to endure at the hands of their assailants. VVe ap peal to the printed Speech for proof of what we sav. And now what was this but a party Oration, so far as these sentiments are concerned Did not the Ora tor i-r.mc that a huge portion of his audience differed with him on these points ? We have no idea of reviewing Mr. Miller's Oration, or of exposing the fallacies of any of its positions. It has been printed, it is true, but it will die with the occasion. Like many of the Register's anti-Southern Editorials, it will provoke momentary indignation and then be forgotten. That portion of it intended to benefit the Consolidation Whig party, will do no injury to the doctrines it assails. These doctrines are too firmly fixed in the very soil of the country to be shaken by light winds. The Register denies that Mr. Miller charged the Slate Rights men with being Disunionists and fac tionists. Tiiis denial is worth something, at any rale, for it shows for the first time in that quarter, some respect for State Rights; but we refer to the Speech and to the inference to be clearly drawn from it, to sustain us in our remarks in relation to it. But if the Register denies and apologizes for Mr. Miller, what will that paper say for itself? Can the Editor of Ihe utghlcr deny that he has charged the Democrats of tin's Stale, in so many words, with being enemies to the Union? That paper, in a recent article against State sovereignty, declared that the " Democratic leaders in North Carolina are determined on the destruc tion if the Union,'''' and charged that those who voted for the right of Secession at the late session of the Legislature, " haled and desired to destroy " the Fed eral Government ! Dare that paper deny this state ment? And yet such an Editor is the apologist for this Oration, which, it is denied by him, was not in tended to reflect on the State Rights men as disunion ists! Mr. Miller, to say the least, is found in bad company, and has for his defender a man who has made the very charge against his political opponents which is clearly deducible from the Oration, but which, as to the Oration, is bitterly denied the Re gister, we presume, being willing to take all the blame of so infamous a charge on its own shoulders, provided it can free Mr. Miller from any blame in the premises. But we put them both in the same category we can perceive no material difference between the two. One turns himself loose, in the Register, and uses rough and bold language in imputing bad de- signs to his political opponents ; the other imputes the same designs in an Oration, but it is done by in ference and in as smooth a manner as possible. The latter is exposed, and forthwith the former rushes to Ins defence. We leave the reader to draw his own conclusions. The last Fourth of July, it seems, was desecrated 1J the utterance of partizan sentiments in other places Asides Raleijrh. The Milledrrville fGaA Union no- fees, in indignant terms, a similar course pursued in t o , P'ace. i iat paper says : " Had the orator " closed when he was done," his oration would have been pronounced appropriate to iiie occasion, an eloquent and interesting offerinnr up on Ilia ".., . r. . . .

It, was. delivered Jn-llie the ball of her Legtshtore a venture to affirm, never before of such ultra federal senti ments sentiments so ultra, that we heaid them dis claimed and repudiated by several of the most devo ted Union men among us arm it was delivered at a time, when the rights of the States are in imminent jeopardy when the Union the glorious Union of our sainted sires, is more than ever betore exposed to the yawning and bottomless gulph of consolidation. Under these circumstances we should be recreant to dutv. faithless to the Dost we occupy, were we not to enter a solemn, protest, against the general tone of mat part ot the oration to wiucn we nave auvertea. If the Editor of the Union had heard Mr. Miller's Oration, and had given an account of certain portions of it, he could not have done so more to the life than he has in the above. Now, what we have to repeat, upon a review of this whole matter is, that it is grossly improper in any man to deliver party harangues on the Fourth of July, or to discuss points in politics or in relation to gov ernment, about which differences of opinion are known to exist among ihe people ; and that all attempts to injure the cause of State Rights with the view of exalting and consolidating the powers of the General Government, or to produce the impression that the people of the South are to blame for the "existing excitement," while those of the North are not to blame, are calculated, no matter what the design or intention may be, to encourage our assailants in the free Slates and (has involve the Union in still deeper peril. Such attempts are Disunion movements, and we characterize them accordingly. Let the Editor of the Register reflect upon these things, and answer us, if he can. We want no slang, nor do the people desire to be bored and troubled with it. Let us have facts and arguments. A cause which cannot sustain itself on its own merits, with out the use of misrepresentation and abuse, deserves to fall, and it will fall, sooner or later. BE ON YOUR GUARD! Wo ItnilflAn fKa CrianAo nf V .

The Consolidation leaders are en gaged secretly engaged, no doubt, at this time in concocting plans to be revealed and carried out by " runners" on election day. The Weldon Patriot, we see, comes out for Henry W. Miller for Congress in this District, and advises its friends to vote for him. Go to the polls and vote for those sterling pat- ll,e r eaerai leaaers. we anticipate no movement of j the sort against ftlr. Ashe, yet it is due to that gallant and unfaltering friend of our institutions that heshould receive a good vote. Perforin your duty, friends, and there is no danger. Neglect it, and you may have cause deeply f) regret it. Forewarned, forearmed." GREEN W. CALDWELL. We make the following extract from a letter re cently leceived from a distinguished Republican of Eastern North Carolina: " I most sincerely hope that the Hon. Green W. Caldwell will be elected. The Major, -in my estima tion, Jis one of the purest patriots that lives. His course has always shown him to be the disinterested patriot and statesman. Always for his country, he has no sinister political ends to answer." The above gives a correct sketch, with a few strokes of the pen, of Greea W. Caldwell's charac ter. As the Writer well remarks, he is " one of the purest patriots that lives. " If elected to Congress, he will be the peovte,s servant. No scheming, no intrigues will engage his attention. Pure and hon est himself, he will tolerate nothing like corruption and double-dealing at Washington City; and so long as he has a voice to raise, he will exert it in defence of the rights of his constituents. Such a man would do credit to his District and to the people of the State at large. EDITORS IN HOT WEATHER. We take occasion to give a most feeling endorse ment to the following from the New York Commer cial : " Temperature and Editorials. It is told of some clergyman that while laboring under embarrassment in the treatment of his subject, he observed slight signs of weariness and dissatisfaction on the part ot the audience, whereupon, leaning over the desk, and ! fixing his eye upon an individual whose lip was more openly curled in contempt, he said, ' It any of you think you can do better than I am doing, you can come up and try." Now, if any one thinks that writing editorials (worth the reading) is only recrea tion at any time, and especially if they think that, in the (present temperature, it is easy to pen .anything brilliant or profound, they can come up to our desk and try. VVe venture to assure them that instead of covering the paper with emanations of the mind, cor uscations of genius, and gems of thought, they will cover it with evaporations from their physical jorgan ization, falling in condensed drops from their fingers and face. " At the time of writing this the Thermometer is j standing at ninety-one degrees, and no rain. ' We learn that the corn crop in this region is suffering very seriously from the long-continued drouth. We return thanks to all the Wilmington papers for their notice of our tri-weekly. We confess to a lit- tie pride about it; it is the only tri-weekly Demo cratic paper that is now or ever has been published in North Carolina and it is published too in a vil lage that hardly had an existence 10 years ago. Is not that going ahead ? The Fayetteville papers will also accept our thanks. Goldsborough Republican and Patriot. We hope the Editors of the Republican and Patri ot will be able to continue their Tri-weekly after the campaign. It is doing noble service new in the good cause. Our friends in the Eighth it will be the im- mortal Eighth after the 7th day of August ought to exiena to u me encouragement 11 so wen aeserves. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY. A Correspondent of the Register enquires if any steps have been taken by the Governor towards exe- icutino - the act of the last session of the Legislature, i ;j: r. ni-?oi a ri.,ii,,rai nA Mm- providing for a Geological, Agricultural, and Mine- - . . . , raloSlcal Purvey of the State. VVe understand that Uov. ueid nas nan mis maiier under consideration forsome time, but that he has not been able, thus far, to procure the services of a gen tleman suitable for the post. This work :s a most important one to the people of tho State, and it is, therefore, indispensable that the gentleman selected should be well qualified in every respect to perform it. We are requested to state that Gen. J. R. J. Dan iel will address the people of Wake as follows : At Rolesville on Friday the 25th of July; at Law's on Saturday the 26th ; and at Dupree's (or Cornell's) on the Monday following. Pepper. Just as we were discussing fjon Thurs day last) the merits of green corn, milk and peaches, &c, we were agreeably interrupted by a present from Mr. Pepper of some turtle soup. It was excellent. Pepper has no superior in his lihei; The Washington City Republic :denies by author ity the rumor that Mr. Webster intended to resigJi his post as Secretary of State; SSf&ft2gfa ' hall whose walls, we vent eched lh enunciation of NORTtf fiAROLJNA. .Hon. Edward Stanly-has, as has been- already- an nounced f finally consented ,-ncrainst his own inclina tion, to become again a candidate for Congress in the Mewbern Distr'et.,- He has been induced to declare himself a candidate solely for the good of the cause, and to prevent the election going by default.. ' His competitor, Col. Uuffin, is said to be " a warm advo cate of the right. of Secession V or, in oilier words, a Disunionist. . The three Whig papers in the Dis trict speak with entire confidence of the triumphant election of Mr. Stanly. Mr. Venable will probably be the only Secessionist from the State in the next Congress, because he is the. only candidate of that stripe who will not encounter strong opposition. ' The election comes off on the 7th of August, and we look forward to a thorough redemption of the State by the Whigs. . - Richmond Times. . The " Times" is " sadly out of joint" in its cal culations in regard to this State. In the first place, Mr. Stanly is running because he desired to run ; in the second place, his opponent is not a Disunionist; in the third place, Mr. Stanly is, for he encourages Northern aggression both by his speeches and votes; and in the fourth place, the Times will look forward in vain to a redemption by the Whigs of this State in August next. . . In 1813 the Legislature of this State laid off the Congressional Districts according to law, but the Whig leaders, not liking the apportionment, changed it in 1846, sons to give themselves six out of the nine members. (Jut now the tables are about to be turned. Even the Gerrymander will not save North Carolina Whiggery. We count With positive , certainty on Venable, Ashe, Daniel, and Ruffin, and with a great deal of confidence on Caldwell ; while Mr. Clingman, who will be returned by at least one thousand majority, lias been repudiated and cast off by the Whig leaders. The Whig party proper, to concede the most to them, cannot elect more than four members ; and the chances now are, decidedly, that they will have only three. The Times will please correct mistakes. How does it happen that the Times now has soft words for Edward Stanly 1 Did not that paper de- 1 ... . - . . . nounce mm, soon alter ms celebrated suomision Speech in the late Congress, as a traitor to his sec lion ? As to the right of secession, Messrs. Venable, Ashe, Daniel, Ruffin, Caldwell, and Clingman all recognize it as the best if not the only remedy for the Southern States, in the last resort but they are op posed to exercising this right at the present time. The Times holds the advocates of the right of Se cession to be Disunionists. What did Mr. Webster say at Capon Springs ? Did he not say that if ihe free States should break the compact the Union ivnuld be dissolved? And if the compact should be broken what would the Times have the slave States do ? Would they not be compelled to secede or withdraw from the existing Union ? And would they, in thus seceding, be Disunionists, or instrumental in produc ing Disunion ? It is no answer to say that if the compact is broken the Government is dissolved. The majority would listen to no such doctrine as that they would hold on to the Government, declare that the Union was still in being, and would seek to punish as traitors all Southern men who should assert their rights. The Times will please correct mistakes here also. ABOLITIOxMSM. We make the following extract from a Communi cation in a late number of the Asheville Messenger, a Consolidation sheet, and of course bitterly opposed to Mr. Clingman : " It is strange that the intelligence of the country cannot foresee the true cause of what is affecting the institution of Slavery ; that it is not the general laws of the country, the infraction of the Federal Consti tution, nor the Abolitionists of the North, but that il is the result of progress and the spirit vf the as.e. Sla very must exist or not exist in this country; and that must depend upon the moral influence in regard to it, rather than any law that governs it, and the interest which it may be, in the progress of time to the slave holder. Slavery is a right that belongs exclusively to the States, and it may exist with some of the slave holding States with profit, for a century after it be comes unprofitable toothers. For instance, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina cannot retain s'avery at this moment, with the same profit of Geor gia, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, with their productive soil and valuable staples, and in any event the slaveholding States must soon enact prohibitory laws against the transportation and migration of slaves out of one State into another, for sale: consequently the slaves of each State will be confined to their own territory. This slate of things the establishment cf c Southern Confederacy would not avoid, nor would the" old and worn out slave States be benefitted by the change ; and they may rest assured that the sympathy oPihe fertile States of the Southwest, would never be so great as to take upon them the burden of the slave population of those sister States of the new Government, because it had become unprofitable and valueless ; hence the importance that slavery should existand belong exclusively to the rights of the States. The third enumeration of the Federal census, will not take place before it will become necessary for the General Government to make some provision for the colonization ot the slaves and free persons of color in lhe older slave States, unless before that time there shall be a great moral revulsion in the country in fa vor of slavery. Its boundary must be extended, or it cannot exist beyond the period above stated, upon its present territory. The two races can only exist to gether in the relation of master and servant, and that for the time only, that the labor of the slave is profi table. It is thcretore evident, that this cannot be the case much longer, unless our slave territory shall be extended, when must come the test in regard to slave ry. It is not, or will not be in retaining slavery, but in disposing of it after it shall become numerous, dangerous, and unprofitable, then il will be yielded by the Slates, and the great struggle will be in regard to the manner in which the country shall dispose of it." The above speaks for itself no comments are need ed. The enemy is in our midst. Shall we strength en that enemy by putting down such men as Cling man and Green W. Caldwell, and by re-electing to Congress such men as Edward Stanly ? Copwav's American Indian, is th8 title of a weekly newspaper, published in New York City, by George Copway (Kah-ge-ga-gah-bowii) the celebra ted Ojibway Chief. Mr. Copway gives the follow ing as the principal subjects to which his attention will be directed : 1. The numbers and localities of the various Tribes of Indians. 3. Their condition in re gard to civilization, education, and religion. 3. Their skill in the mechanical arts. 4. Their modes of sub sistence. 5. Their languages. C. Their manners, customs and character. 7. Biographies of their re markable men, and anecdotes, notices of all books published on the Indians. Two Brothers. Col.

Specification guilty, and guilty of the charge. This charge ai,d specification was the vi olation ol . the 132d article ofhe regulations for the government . of the ordnance department, in permit ting and sanctioning a contract with Dr. Carmichael, of ltichmond, for shot and shells, - without the sanc tion of the Secretary of War. Charge II. Specification guilty, and guilty of the charge. This charge is that Gen. Tafcott did, by evasion, order a contract to be made with Dr. Car michael for shot and shells alter the Secretary of War had positively refused to sanction such contract. Charge 111. 1st specification, guilty, except the words therein, "and had previously reported to the Secretary of War. " 2d specification, not guilty ; 3d, 4th, 5th, 6ih, 7th specification, guilty ; and guil ty of the charge. The first specification charges Gen. Talcott with ordering a contract wi'h Dr. Carmichael for shot and shells when he knew that thev were not wantino-. and that he is thereto re guilty of conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman.. The second specification on wh'ch he is pronounced not guilty, charges him with a knowledge of Dr. Carmichael's intention to sell his contract for $6,500 to another party. The third specification charges him with knowing that Dr. Car michal had engaged the proprietors ofTredegar Iron Works tof Richmond to execute the said contract, and that he concealed his knowledge of the tact from the Secretary of-War, notwithstanding repeated in quiries from him as to the fact, both verbal and in wrilfng. The fourth specification charges that Gen. Talcott did, on the 18th of January, 1851, at the War Department, state, to the Secretary of War, wilfully 1 and falsely, and with intent to deceive him, that nei ther the proprietors of the Tredegar Iron VVorks nor! any other establishment had any contract ito furnish shot or shells to the Ordnance Department; where as, in fact, and as the said Talcott well knew, a large contract tor shot and shells, and then outstanding-. had been given to Dr. Edward Carmichael, which he had, as the said lalcott further knew, enan-ed Jos eph R. Anderson, proprietor of the Tredegar Iron Works, to execute. The fifth, sixth, and seventh specifications charge him with repeated falsehoods and prevarications with regard to the said contract for snot anu stiews, wnicn are charged to have been pos itively and wilfully false. ' The following is the sentence of the Court and the approval of the President : Sentence. And the court does sentence him, Brevet Brigadier Gen. George Talcott, Colonel of the Ord nance Department, to be dismissed the service. " II. In conformity with the 65th of the rules and articles of war, the proceedings of the general court martial in the foregoing case have been transmitted to the President of the United States. The following is the decision thereon : Executive Mansion, July 8, 1851. The foregoing proceedings of the court martial for the trial of Brevet Brigadier General George Talcott, having been laid before me, and having been by me duly examined and considered, I hereby confirm the same. Millard Fillmore. III. Brevet Brigadier General George Talcott ac cordingly ceases to be an officer of the army from this date. In reviewing these proceedings the President has seen with regret, and feels constrained to notice, the irregularity and negligence which, throughout the transaction in which they originated, characterized the conduct of Brevet Col. Hugar, commander of lhe Fort Monroe arsenal. The confidence naturally re. posed by him in the head of his corps furnishes un doubtedly some apology for his course, but cannot justity it. The President deems it proper, particularly to ex press his disapprobation of all private correspondence on official business. Such a practice not only pre vents the preservation of a distinct and intelligible record of any transaction, so indispensable in a gov ernment where public agents are liable to be frequent ly changed, but is imcompatible with the admitted ac countability of every officer employed in the disburse ment of the public moneys.

It is made up fairly, squarely, in the old Keystone Slate, and no mistake. It is glo rious to seethe Democracy there. Their convention their candidates, and no thanks to them for it their presses are all for the compromise all discard ing free-soilism. They have taken out a clean bill ofhealth, with nothing of the pestilence about it. On the ether side is Johnston, with his fresh free-soilism the resolutions of the Whigs, with their free-soil taint the whole of this dish of aoup held up by General Scott. On the one side nationalism ; on the other sectionalism. It will be so all over the Union. Democrats need not fear to abide the issue. Boilon Pbst. Shocco Springs.

In consequence of this nnpro pitious prospect, tobacc) has advanced here within a week or ten days past fully one dollar per cwt. The Editor of lhe Mountain Banner, writing from Ashville N. C. aims the following at the great Per nambunator : "Gen. E'lney, United States consul to (and from) Pernambnco, is expected here soon. He is destined to renown, for his " Tracks of a Traveller" are enough to immortalize any one. 1 am trying to procure a full series of these luminous epistles from which to collect extracts under tbe title of " The Beauties of Edney." We have "The Beauties of Irving." why not those of Edney ? For instance, such as his description of Nhsgara Falls, which he likens to tho vaulted arch' of Heaven turned bottom upwards like a bowl, and a stream as large as thn stream of life pouring into it! And then agnin his opinion that The Bride of Ahydos' is the best poem Shakespeare ever wrote. ' He has also seen V'arona, renowned as the pl.ice where Lord Byron has laid the scene of Romeo and Juliet. These are only a few of the " Beauties," but enough to show the character of them all. The Generel was born to die. Example of Self-Consecration. Mr. Nathan R. Cobb, an exemplary young merchant, connected with the Baptist church in Boston, at the age of 23 drew up and subscribed the following covenant : " 1 By tho grace of God 1 will never be worth morejlian $50,000. 2. By the grace of God I will give one fourth of the net profits of my business to chart- table and religious uses. 3. If 1 am ever worth JS20.- j 000,1 will give one-half of my net profits; and if 1 am ever worth $30,000,1 will give 3-4ths; and the whole after 8 50,000." TVthis covenant Mr. C. ad hered till he had acquired $50,000 and gave all his income afterwards. He was thus enabled to say on his death bed, "By the gracn of God i have been ena ble to give away more than $40,000. Hov good the the Lord has been to me." A Hint to Borrowers. A correspondent of the Boston Post relates the following anecdote of Robert G. Shaw, one of our merchant princes 2 " VVe have an anecdote to tell about Mr. Shaw, which was never before in print, and which we think, will amuse our mercantile readers, and not give of fence to our venerable friend. We happened to be present when the occurrence took place. A gentle man met him in the street, and, upon a brief conver sation, asked him to tend him ten dollars, as he was s,ort not an uncommon thing for him at that time. It was many months ago. Mr. S., raising his spec tacles, replied Yes, sir, with pleasure, on one con dition." " What is that, sir?" " Why, that when we next meet, you will turn your face towards me, look pleasant, and not torn it away! 1 lent Mr. a small sum of money about a month ago, and ever since that time he has cut me, most decidedly. Meet him where 1 will, on State Street, Commercial Street, or in the Exchange, and he always tnrns his head away. When I lend a man money, and he is owing me, I want him to look me full in the face, as though nothing had happened. - And then I shall be willing to lend him again." This is a veritable story." : Fatal Duel. A despatch from New Orleans, da ted on Saturday last, states that a duel was fought on that day between Dr. .Thomas Hunt and J. W.
