BY GEORGE WATTERSTOX. At the death of Philip Doddridge, an eminent lawyer of Virginia, who died in the city of Wash ington, while a member of Congress, it-was bu.u as a reason for retaining his body longer tlian usual, that on a former occasion, he had narrowly escaped the melancholy fate of being boned alive.

He said that though he was perfectly unable to move his finger nr oive the least sign of being alive, he could hear and was conscious of everything that was going on around him. He heard the announcement that he was dead, and the lamentations of his family, the directions for his shroud ana an me usuai prepara tions for his burial. He inside desperate eflbrts to show that he was not dead, but in vain ; he could not move a muscle. Even despair and the imme diate presence of a fate more appalling to human ity than any other earthly terror, could not rouse the dormant body to perform the slightest of its ft,; At last he heard Mrs. Doddridge call fi. th brandv. with a delight and rapture of love for her which the horrors of his situation may ea sily explain. He felt that he was saie. ne nu mourously observed " that it was as little as brandy could do to restore him to life, as it had produced - his living death." Mr. Doddridge was unfortunate ly addicted to the intemperate use of ardent spir- its, and a nt oi intemperance uau, duccd the condition from which he was relieved by the perseverance and love of his wife, who admin istered, at the last moment, the powerful stimulant which restored him to life. Otherwise his fate would have been that of many others, who have been buried before life was extinct Another instance of prevention from the horrors of premature interment occurred in this country, and has been related by Mrs. Childs in her Letters from New York. It is an additionol proof of strong conjugal affection, and of the necessity of retaining the body where there remains the least doubt of the extinction of life. The uncle of Mrs. Childs was attacked in Boston with the yellow fever, and con sidered as dead. His affectionate wife, however, did not abandon all hope, but continued with him during his illness, contrary to the remonstrances of her friends, and persisted in refusing to allow his bodv to be taken from the house for interment. " She told me," said Mrs. Childs, that she never piercing scream. The faculty were instantly call ed in, and, in the space of a few days, ner neaun was completely re-established. The account which she crave of her situation is extremely curious. From the Wilmington Journal. EDUCATION No. 4. Mb.

We are indebted to a friend in New York for a copy of the San Francisco News-Letter, received in the former City on the 18th, and dated September 15th. We make the following interesting extracts " The returns as they come in give evidence that. as a general thing, the Democracy are triumphant all over the State. . We shall send a Democratic Sena tor to Congress, and matters now look very much as though our representatives win oe uemocrais also. The whole southern coast section of our State are rising for a division of California. They complain of the enormous taxes which they are compelled to pay for the support of our present government, and state that several years more with such taxes, will ruin every wealthy man from Monterey down. The entire Southern press are strenuous for the movement. They desire a Territorial Government. We think the separation will take place, and that eventually the Southern limb of California will be admitted into the Union as a slave State. A convention of delegates from the Southern counties is called to meet at Santa Barbara, on the 22d inst., to take the matter of sep aration into consideration. The call for the conven tion published in the San Diego Herald of the 28th ult. is signed by seventy-three persons, among whom are some of the best men in the southern counties. Yesterday was the anniversary ofthe admission of California into the Union. It passed off very quiet ly, the larger portion ol our population having to in quire what the guns fired on the Plaza, by 'the Cali fornia Guards, were for. The Marysviue Herald says : " We hear from packera and miners, from the mining districts, that on all the liars on the i uba Kiver the yield is large, very large, even upon such bars as were abandoned last season. One in particular, known as Condemn ed Bar, they are realizing $25 to the man, and have been for six or eight weeks past, which may continue for a much longer period. That portion of the above relating to the forma tion of a new Stale, will attract particular attention. We have thought, all along, that as the mines and lands of California passed into the possession of per manent owners, slave labor would be required to work and cultivate them ; and it appears that already a feeling favorable to the establishment of Slav ery is beginning to prevail. But suppose a slave holding State is carved out of a portion of California will the Congress admit her 1 " Sufficient unto the day," however, "is the evil thereof. " It is the duty of Congress at once to lease or sell the mines. Such a policy would not only benefit the coantry gen erally, but it would add to the importance of Califor nia by fixing her prosperity on a permanent basis, and by attaching her citizens to the soil. KOSSUTH'S ADDRESS. The Washington Union contains the Address of Louis Kossuth to the people of the United States. It is dated Broussa, Asia Miuor, 37th March, 1850, and the publication of it has been delayed until this time' under the apprehension that, if given to the public, i might operate against bis release. This Address contains an account of the struggles of Hun gary, from the first movement far independence down to the time of defeat and overthrow, occasioned by the treachery ef Georgy ; and it is written in a style of much beauty and burns with eloquence and pas sion. We regret that we cannot lay the whole of it before our readers ; we give, however, below, some extracts from it. He is speaking of the treachery of Georgy, of the failure of his country, and of the sympathies extended to his nation by England and the United States : - .

This question, together with another or a kindred nature, is exciting a great deal of interest in Western North Carolina. The public presses are load in their complaints against what they consider abuses. Constitutional reform is demanded seciional platforms are being erected re quiring the adhesion of all candidates, trom Gover nor down. Conventions are being held to arouse the people to the importance of these sectional issues; and declarations made that no man shall receive the votes of that section, unless pledged to carry out these so-called reforms. I his, in my opinion, is un fortunate for the interest of the whole State. It con stitutes the greatest barrier to the perfection of our Common School laws. Let any valuable amendment be proposed in the Legislature, and it is immediately rejected, and the mover consoled by being told we had better not touch the subject, for fear of awaken ing this old sectional spirit. Unfortunately, the geographical position ot oar State, as well as the hitherto do-nothing policy of her Legislature, has greatly assisted in augmenting these sectional divis ions. There has been no identity of interest, or sym pathy between the Eastern and Western sections- no assimilation of feeling, pride and sociality among the people. Each section have striven for legisla tive preponderance, without turning that, even when obtained, to any good. We of the East know more of Pennsylvania and New-York, and of their capital ists and resources, than we do of the great mineral and agricultural wealth of Western North Carolina. But a brighter day is dawning upon us. Let the great works of internal improvements now in pro gress be completed, and be assured we will hear no more of Eastern and Western North Carolina ; nor of the distracting questions now at issue between them. Let us not quarrel about the basis of representation, or the distribution of the School Fund, or any other question for sectional aggrandisement ; but lend our noblest efforts to make North Carolina the whole Slate the pride and glory of her sons. Let us be co-workers in the great cause ot improvement, en deavoring to ' bind together the self-same sheaf in the great harvest of wealth, ot glory, and ot blate- pride. August 2d, 1851. Senator Douglas. This gentleman, during his recent visit to his native town in Vermont, paid a visit to the old cabinet maker shop of Mr. Nashum Parker, where, twenty-three years ago, he had been an apprentice. A correspondent of the Boston Traveler, in refer ence to his address before some of the lierary socie ties of Middlebury College, remarks the Judge has never enjoyed the advantages of a public education, but he has learned to talk. He is a pleasing, natural, forcible orator, seemed self-possessed and at home before a literary audience, as he is said to be on the ' stump " at the West, or on the floor of the ben-ate. Strange emotions were excited in the hearts of some of his hearers. Twenty years ago, th is remark able man was an apprentice in a cabinet shop in Mid- dieoary. lhe shop is still standing, and even the bench is there at which he was accustomed to shove the plane. He returns to visit Middlebury for the first time since his departure, a Senator in Congress, a distinguished statesman, and with fair prospects, they say, of being called, at no distant day, to en gage again in the work of Cabinet making. I do not belong to his political party, but permit me to say, that politicans must look well to their ways, or this young Senator will steal the hearts of the peo ple. THE VERMONT WHIGS. The Editors of the Raleigh Register are silent in relation to the recent Abolition, " higher-law " Mes sage of the Whig Governor of Vermont, while the Star gives but a meagre, and, to say the least, an in correct statement of the substance of this document. These papers appear to be determined, so far as they are concerned, that the Whigs of this State shall not have a just and true account of Jhe position and sen timents of the Northern W bigs on the Slavery ques tion. The Register denounces as " Disnnionists " and " traitors " all Southern men who will not unquali fiedly approve the a Compromise ' but the Editors have no words of condemnation for the Vermont Whigs, who are not only opposed to the only feature in this "Compromise" calculated to benefit the South, but who have solemnly and deliberately de clared, by law, that this feature shall have no exis tence so far as they are concerned ! These are facts. The Raleigh Register and Star are, therefore, in alliance with the Vermont Whigs ; and being in al liance with them as co-laborers and political friends, they are responsible to the slaveholding people of North Carolina for their sentiments and conduct. We have no confidence in the Register as a Southern or Union journal, and therefore no hope that it will epudiate this alliance ; but we look to the Star for a different course, after the Editor shall have turned his attention more particularly to the facts herein set forth. No man can say that we have ever apologized for the conduct of abolitionists, or covered up and conceal ed the movements of those democrats in the free States who are unsound upon the Slavery question. If the Democrats, as a party, cannot triumph on the broad platform of the Constitution and as the advocates of non-intervention on the Slavery question, let them, say we, be defeated. We go for the Constitution as it is, for the Union as it is, and for the Democratic party as it was, in the days of Jackson and Polk ; and we will sustain no man for President who does not approve the fugitive-slave law and insist on its faithful execution, and who rvill not pledge himself to the doctrine of non-interference by Congress in thankful prayer of faith, of hope, and of love, the air of my native land is filled with the cries of despair. and I. her chosen leader, am an exile. The diploma cy of Europe has changed Turkish hospitality to me and my companions into hopeless bondage. It is a painful existence. My youthful children have begun the morning of their life in the hands of m v country's destroyer, and I but no : desponding does not be come me, tor 1 am a man. I am not permitted, or I would say I envy the dead. Who is unfortunate ? I am in Broussa, where the sreal Hannibal once lived an exile, homeless like myself, but rich in services performed Tor bis country, while I can claim onlv fi delity to mine. The ingratitude of his nation went with him in his banishment, but the sorrowful love of my countrymen follows me to my place of exile. To thee, my God, I offer thanks that thou didst deem me worthy to suffer for dear Hungary. Let me suffer afflictions, but accept them as propitiatory sacrifices for my native land. And thou, Hungarian nation, yield not to despair ! Be patient; hope, and wait thy time! Though all men forget thee, the God of Justice will not. Thy suf ferings are recorded, and thy tears remembered. The blood of thy martyrs thy noble sons which mois tened thy soil, will have its fruits. The victims which daily fall for thee are, like the ever-green cypress over trie graves ot the dead, the symbol of resurrection. The races whom thy destroyer excited against thee by lies and cunning will be deceived ; they will know that thou didst not fight for pre-eminence, but for the common liberty that thou wast their brother, and bled for them also. The temporary victory of our enemies will but serve to take the film from the eyes of the deceived people. The sentiment of sympathy for our suffering will inspire among the smaller States and races the wish for a fraternal confederation for that which I always urged as the only safe policy and guarantee of freedom for them all. The realization of the idea will hurl the power of the haughty despots to the abyss of the past, and Hungary, free, surrounded by free nations, will be great, glorious, and independent. At the moment when I hardly hoped tor further con solation on earth, behold the God of Mercy freed my wife, and enabled her, through a thousand dangers, to reach me in my place ot exile! Like a hunted deer, she could not for five months find in her own native land a place of rest. The executioners of the beardless Nero placed a reward upon her head, hut she has escaped the tyrants. She was to me and to my exiled countrymen like the rainbow pi Noah ; for she brought intelligence of hope in the unsha ken souls of the Hungarian people, and in the affec tionate sympathy of the neighboring nations who had fought against us. They had aided the wife of the much-slandered governor of Hungary. Although the sympathy of the world often depends upon the result of actions, and the successful are ap plauded, still Hungary, by her noble bearing and tri als, has drawn the attention of the world. The sym pathy which she has excited in both worlds, and the thundering curse which the lips of millions have pronounced against her destroyers, annonnce, like the ble Americans, be to other nations the cial virtue ; your power be the terror of all tyranis the protector of the distressed ; and your free country ever continue to be the asylum for the oppres&ed of all nations. Written at my plane of banishment, Broussa, Asia Minor, 27ih March, 1850. LOUIS KOSSUTH, Governor of Hungary." This mighty genius and great patriot is probably by this time on American soil. The Republic rises as, one man to receive him. Here he will find an asylum where no despot's hand can reach him, and where freedom, like the elements, is common lo all and the right of all. How little do mere Kings and Queens become, when compared to this man ! From the Memphis Appeal. More Brag Cotton Picking. The following note from a gentleman in De Soto county is ahead of anything in that line that has yet been published, ex cept the extraordinary picking in Texas which we " made a note of" on yesterday. Eds. Jlppeal- I send you a list of the work of four hands picking Cotton on' the 1st day of October weather and Cotton both very dry : 1st. 518 lbs. on the farm of Dr. Raines. 2d. 504 " 3d. 495 " Average, 500 pounds. 4th. 487 HENRY MITCHELL, Horn Lake, De Soto co., Miss. EJgecombe is still ahead. Two hands on Mr. Hints' 8 farm, two on Mr. Horn's farm, and four hands on a farm .on Tar River, worked by Mr. Elijah Nevill, each picked out more per day, about the same time, than any hand mentioned above. The average in the above is 500 pounds; the average of the five hands under Mr. Nevill, was 536 pounds. We understand the Cotton crop of Edgecombe gets better every year. Success to the farmers! Edgecombe has an Agricultural Society; and we have no doubt that much of her success in farming is owing to the spirit of improvement which the la bors of this Society have diffused among the people. questions involving the institution of Slavery.

In deed, we should not be surprised at any course on the part of a Southern journal, which can perceive no good results for the cause of the Union in the election of Bigler, and which conceals from its readers,. for par ty effect, the foul character of its Abolition allies in Ohio and Vermont. Nobth-Caboliua Cassimxbcs. We saw the oth er day at the store of Messrs. Cook & Taylor, speci mens 01 aasimeres manufactured at the Kock Island Manufactory in Mecklenburor countv. We also aavr at the store of Messrs. Arey.Shemwell & McDonald, specimens of Cassimeres manufactured at Salem, by Messrs. Fries. The fabrics which we saw from hnth factories ware highly creditable to their enterprising proprietors, and afford gratifying evidence of the progress in North Carolina of this branch of indus try. tayettenlle Carolinian. The Raleigh Star is out for a National Bank, and for a distribution of the proceeds of the sales of the public lands ; and insists that the Whig party is still in business, with its sign up, and with the prospect before it of taking in the unreflecting I and unsophisticated as occasion may offer. In addi tion to this, the Star has made the discovery that there are " Union" and " Southern Rights" men in the South. Will that paper show us why it is and how it is that an honest advocacy of Southern Rights is incompatible with a proper feeling of devotion to the Union 1 On Tuesday night last some rogue or rogoes bored with an auger into the storehouse of Mr. H. B. Hayes, in this place, and plundered the store of goods to the value of some fifty or sixty dollars. This was evi dently the work of some one who was familiar with the premises, and who knew how to use an auger. Look out ! The last Star has an article urging the establish ment of a Cotton Factory at Newsom's Mills, at the Falls of Neuse, in this County. We concur with that paper in its views on this subject ; but we fear we shall have but few investments of this sort, so long as State bonds paying six per cent, can be ob tained for ten, twenty, and thirty years at one and two per cent, premium. Two new Post offices have been established in North Carolina, as follows : Blocker's, Cumberland, S. R. Hawley, P. M.. and Scott Hill, New Hanover, Joseph M. Foy, P. M. Turkey Cove, McDowell, has been discontinued, and the name of Burnt Shop, Orange, has been changed to Melville. j Among the nations of the world there are two which demand ourgratitude and affection. England, no less powerful than she is free and glorious, sup ported us by her spmpathy, and by the approving voice of her noblest sons and the millions of her peo ple. And that chosen land of freedom beyond the ocean the all-powerful people of the United States, with their liberal government inspired us with hope, and gave us courage by their deep interest in our cause and sufferings, and by their condemnation of our executioners. The President of the United States, whom the con fidence of a free people had elevated to the loftiest station in the world, in his message to Congress, an nounced that the American government would have been the first to recognise the independence of Hun gary. And the senators and representatives in Con gress marked the destroyer's of my country's liberty with the stigma of ignominy, and expressed, with indignant feelings, their contempt to! (he conduct of Auaina, ana ineir wisn to DreaK the diplomatic inter course with such a government. They summoned the despots before the iudffmentvseat of humanitv: they proclaimed that the world would condemn them ; they declared that Austria and Russia bad been un just, tyrannical, and barbarious, and deserved to be reprobated by mankind, while Hungary was worthy of universal sympathy. The Hungarians, more fortunate than 1, who were able to reach the shores of the New World, were re ceived by the people and government of the United States in the most generous manner yes, like broth ers. Wilh one hand they burled anathemas at the despots, and with the other welcomed the homble exiles to partake of that glorious American liberty more to be valued than the glitter of crowns. Our hearts are filled with emotions to see how this great nation extends its sympathy , and aid to every Hun garian who is so fortunate as to arrive in America. The sympathetic declaration of such a people, under such circumstances, with similar sentiments in Eng land, is not a mere sigh wbieh the wind blows away, bot.is prophetic of the future.

See advertisement in to-day's paper. The Wilmington Commercial says : " By an ad vertisement of the Secretary, it will appear that a Dividend of three per cent, is declared on the Capi tal Stock of the Wilmington and Raleigh Rail Rwd Company. We congratulate the holders of hja Stock and the public on this occasion. This is ue result of perseverance, industry and good manage ment. We believe it is estimated that the divide hereafter will not fall below 6 per cent, perannnm. The Editors of the Register have gone over the files of the Standard for the last year or so, and g"rbki oar Editorials with the view of showing that we we or were in favor of D isnnion. This is an exceeding ly small business. The Editor who did this work, ought to be ashamed of it. He is capable of better things. The lowest order of argument if argoment it may be called is to misstate the positions of a opponent, and then draw inferences therefrom ; but even such a course as that is respectable, when com pared with the conduct of a writer who garbles language of an opponent, and holds him respond e for the meaning of sentences thus disconnected. f he Editors of the Register are welcome to all the credit they may gain by such conduct.
