We hope to see him Clerk of the next House of Rep

superior order, and his patriotism is of the purest and
noblest stamp. If all the citizens of the free States
were as soend as he is on the Slavery question, and
asjust as he is in his sentiments towards the slave
hoiling States, we should soon have peace, harmony,
and good feeling in all our borders.
If the report be correct that six of the Union can

several letters informing me that it is extensively re
ported in several counties that I am in favor of our
Slate seceding from the Union for the past aggres

ected I will encourage South Carolina to secede, and
endeavor to carry out Georgia with her. The whole
of this statement is a gross fabrication, and faht in
every part of it. It is put in circulation on the eve
of the election to affect the vote, and it is the work
of designing and unprincipled men, who know that

THE "STAR" FOR A BANK
We had intended to submit some remarks in reply
to a late article in the Raleigh Star, in which that
paper shows the cloven foot and the horns of a mon
ster National Bank ; but we find the matter so well
noticed by oor friends of the Wilmington Journal,
that we substitute their article for one of our own:
A JNational Bank. This obsolete idea,' as
. tr i . .. .
Daniel vv eosier once lerraeo. h, is every now and
i men uiuugiu ii ma mcio are Dersona

Star of the 13th inst., in an article headed 4 The Banks
and Currency, wherein the veritable Guyascuticus
is let loose the ancient Nicholas is developed in his
full proportions, adorned with the traditional appen
dages and adornments of hoofs and horns, tails and
toggery. In fact, the Star comes right out for a Na
At times, one would suppose that the Whig party
had given up the Bank hobby ; and such, we pre
sume, is the belief of the rank and file of that party
in general. But no such notion has entered the head
of the old staging politicians. We have carefully
and thoughtfully noted the signs of the times in this
respect, and we are as perfectly convinced as we are
of our own existence, that, could the present Presi
dent and Cabinet obtain a Congressional majority,
agreeing with, them in sentiment, the next message
of the Secretary of the Treasury would embody a re
commendation on this subject.
Our object is not now to discuss the merits of the
case. It is simply to call attention to the facts in re
gard to it. Whatever apparent abandonment there
may be for the purpose of effect, the old Henry Clay
platform is still the Creed and Koran of the old line,
especially at the North ; and as the bulk of the party
is located there, so is the influence. The leopard has
not changed his spots by any means, although he ra
ther keeps them out of view. We have little doubt
that the article of the Star would be endorsed by nine
tenths of the Whig papers of the State, were they
called upon to show their hands. As we have already
remarked, our object is not to say a wnrd pro or con,
but to state the issue as it really will be found to ex
ist, should ever a time arrive when it can be tested."
The Editor of the Star will find some "food for
reflection " in the above.
Movements or Kossuth. Our European tele
graphic advices yesterday mention that the Missis
sippi, with Kossuth and his companions on board,
had called at Marseilles for coal and fresh provisions,
and had left again, whether directly for the United
States or to stop in England, is still in doubt. We
find also the following notices of her and her guests :
On the arrival of Kossuth in the Dardanelles, the
captain of the Mississippi went onboard the Turkish
vessel, and placed his ship at the disposal of the ex
iles, at the same time presenting $15,000 to their
leader, in the name of the American government.
After having solemnly promised the Turkish com
missaries to go direct to America, Kossuth wanted
to take a Hungarian flag with him Into the Ameri
can vessel ; but this was objected to by the Turks.
When all the refugees were safely on board, Kossuth
made a speech, in which Lord PalmerstonBand the
Americans were not forgotten, and soon alter the
Mississippi started on her voyage.
A letter from Smyrna, September lGth, notes the
arrival of the Mississippi therewith Kossuth and the
fifty Hungarians, and says :
" None but Americans were allowed to go on board
during her stay here. One of my friends went to
see him, and had a long conversation with this noble
patriot. He speaks in the highest terms of him, and
says his officers' devotion towards him is without
bounds. ' Among other things, as soon as any new
comer visits the vessel, tvo of them stand by his
side to protect hisjperson if need be, and at night
one of them watches at the entrance of his cabin. The
commander of the frigate was saying that when he
reached the vessel at the Dardanelles, he delivered a
short address to the crew, which affected them all to
Thk Win: of Kossuth. The New York Ex
press, in an article on the expected arrival of Kossuth,
relates the following incident, illustrative of the de
votion of his wife to her husband after being exiled
to Turkey :
'With him comes his heroic wife who, after his
exile commenced in Turkey, with incredible sacrifi
ces and devoted disregard to a thousand dangers, tra
versed hostile territories, submitted to deprivations
and underwent sufferings of every kind, and joined him
at his retreat by the foot of Mount Olympus. It was
under the protection of a passport from the British
consul general, at Belgrade, that as British subjects,
under assumed names, she and her companions were
enabled to accomplish this great adventure, and
when, on the twenty-eighth day, a courier was sent
in advance of them to apprise Kossuth of their ap
proach to Shumla, (he was ill, and on account of the
many plans of the Austrians loassassinate him, the Sul
tan's authorities would not allow him to leave Shum
la and go to meet his wife,) the news of her delive
rance and her approach occasioned the liveliest satis
faction to all the refugees ; and the Hungarians and
Poles went as far as the gates of the city to meet this
heroic martyr to the cause of Hungary. It was night
when the carriage neared the city ; and as it en
tered the gates she found the streets lighted with hun
dreds of lights, green, white and red, the colors of
the Hungarian flag, and was welcomed with the most
friendfy shouts from the wholebody of the refugees.
And the account from which we have quoted goes on
to say :
44 When Madame Kossuth descended from her car
riage she found herself in the presence of her hus
band, who had risen from his bed of illness to receive
the poor Maria F n, of the plains of Hungary.
In place of receiving her in his arms, M. Kossuth,
overcome by feelings of admiration for the sufferings-
which his wife had undergone, and by gratitude lor
her devotion to the cause of her country, threw him
self at her feet and kissed them. She endeavored to
speak and offer he.-husband consolation and tranquili
ty, while her own poor leeoie neari was reauy 10 uursv
with emotion. Her voice failed her, and amid the
reiterated shouts of the Hungarians and Poles, this
heroic woman was carried to her husband's apart
ments." In our rejoicings, therefore, at the liberation and
the comincr hither of the gteat patriot, let us not for
get the heroic adventures of his noble wife. "
Tub Weather and Crops. Frost in Louisiana.
The following is from the Concordia Intelligencer of
the 4th inst. , '
On Monday morning of this week the 29th day
of September the cotton plantations in this vicinity
were visited by quite a severe white frost. We deem
so remarkable an occurrence as this worth chroni
cling. The appearance of frost in this region of coun
try by the 9th or 15th of October, has generally been
considered early enough, and we venture to say that
it 44 runneth beyond the memory of man," when we
have had a frost here in September before.
The Clinton (La.) Whig, of the 1st inst., says :
Saturday, Sunday and Monday nights were cold
and unseasonable. On Monday morning, we are in
formed, the thermometer stood at 44 degrees, and frost
was discernable on the bottom lands. The weather
still continues dry, all vegetation is checked, and it
seems to be the general anticipation that the first
rain will bring in its train a heavy frost perhaps a
The Galveston News of the 2d inst., has the fol
lowing in relation to the crops :
Our cotton crop appears likely to turn out much
better than was anticipated a few weeks ago. There
was then a prospect that the dry summer which had
been so injurious would be followed by a wet fall.
But the weather after some fine rains, has since con
tinued dry ; and thus far no season was ever more
favorable for picking, or lor the maturing of the bolls.
On most of the plantations on the Brozos and Caney,
from which we have heard, the cotton crop is repor
ted to be much better than it was last year, and some
are making quite an average crop. If the present fine
weather continues a little longer, we shall confidently
expect the total crop of the State to be much larger
than it was last vear.
The weather, remarks the Greensboro Beacon of
the 4th inst., continues favorable for cotton picking,
nH the croD in this section is. we are satisfied, turn'
ing out considerably better than was generally antici-
natAi month ao-o. Whilst the vield on the thin
sandr lands will fall something below that of last
. .... . 1 1 -1 1 r .
year, the black lands generally win give a cuuaiuc
rablv better vield. We had very light frosts on the
nights of the 27th and 88th, but they did no damage
to the cotton.

44 It is the fashion of those who would be esteem
ed the rampant champions of the administration, and
the best friends of the Whig party, to accuse those
of being disunionists, who speak the truth to the
people in respect to the prospects before us. Some
of these fellows would sell the Union, if the patron
age they get for being Union men could be doubled
on the other score.
Such is the lauguageof the Wilmington Commer
cial, a Whig paper. It is a hard hit ; and were it
not their rhinoceros-like hides are impervious, it
would sink deep into the quivering flesh of those
ranting Union Whigs who have the effrontery to de
nounce as disunionists all who advocl the rights
of the States. They anathematize as enemies of the
Union those who seek to uphold the compromises of
the Constitution. But, says this same Whig paper,
44 the truest friend is he who tells the truth so he
is the truest friend. of the Union who warns the peo
ple of the dangers that assail it. The pillars of al
legiance resting in the hearts of the people can alone
preserve this Union. When it is attempted to up
hold it by government patronage and the Central
Power, it will either live but in name, under a con
solidated Despotism, or else be dissolved, with re
sults in perspective that defy all human calculation."
These are words of 44 soberness and truth.' Par
tisan demagogues may endeavor to propitiate the
good will of the people by hypocritical professions
of devotion to the Union ; bnt intelligent men will
not fail to detect the flimsy veil with which they at
tempt to hide their real object. If this Union is on
ly to be preserved by force, or if it is to be perpet
uated only by a submission on the part of the South
to the aggressions of the North, than it ceases to be
the Union established by our fathers, and becomes
a mere despotism. And they who denounce States'
Rights men, and raise the pharisaical cry of "Union
the glorious Union" are the very last men to be
relied on to save the Union. While on the other
hand, those who adhere to the written Constitution
and warn the South of the fatal blows aimed at it by the
North, are the true Union men. We want the Union
as it came from.the hands of its illustrious founders
and we want no other Union. Give us this or none.
But these same men, who claim to be the especial
champions of the Union, par excellence, are pursuing
a course which can only result in a subversion of the
Union as originally established, and the substitution
in its stead of a central despotism, with absolute and
uncontrolled power. Upon such politicians with
what terrible effect does the denunciation of this
Whig paper fall '"Some of these fellows would
sell the Union, if the patronage they get for being
Union men could be doubled on the other score !"
