numbers and character, uud the proceedings throughout
were conducted with the best order and decorum.
Looking to our own Salute, the 4 signs of the times*
for these last few weeks, plainly indicate that the star of
Gen. Harrison is rising to the ascendant. As wave fol

11 a it ui son Mi:» UNO.—On Monday last, the friends of
Gen. Harrison made a second elf irt in this cilv. It was
the day of the Regimental Parade,uud great efforts were
made by the few who are the uulhors of the “Kxperi
menl,” to get a largo meeting; hut few could he found,
however, who took any interest in the thing, and most of
the knowing ones, who generally regulate the allairs of
Federalism, at tins point, were missing.
I his ctljut, taken in connection with the former one
here,confirms us fully,in the declaration which wc then
made, to wit: Gen. Ilnrrisnu has scarcely u lylheof tin
strength at this point, that either M'Lean, Webster or
t.lay has.
The meeting was very small—not more than ISO be
ing in the room at the fullest time, and we do not believe
that more titan forty p.ulieipated in the proceedings.
[ Col it tn bus lit mispherc.
M\j. Doni.i.son s I.Krn:it.—For the next day or two
alter the Editor ol the Republican received a copy of the
1 resident 3 last letter to the Iter. Mr. Gwin, enclosed
trom Gallatin, where Mr. G. was then confined by sick
ness, the leaders of the no party party In this city, or
more properly speaking, the Nashville junto, weroVeen
tn he in a state oi commotion, manifesting by anxious
appearances, that something important ami unusual was
on the tapis. The character and high standing of the
parties concerned, gave “note of preparation," indicat
ing by signs nut to be mistaken, that ml the to!tuts were
called into requisition in the preparation of such an an
swer as would, it possible, in some degree, parry undevude
the force and effect of the President a letter. \\ hen the an
swer came forth, accompanied by the letter,and after all the
joint labor, time uud talents employed in its production,
it turned out to he nothing hut a poor, quibbling attempt
at equivocation and evasion. This was not surprising.
I hi- letter was so lull, direct and positive in its express
contradiction of every charge and insinuation made in
the previous allegations against the President, Major
Donclson and Mr. illuir, that no room was left for
further evasion. It left the Republican, without
means ol csca|>c fioui tho condition (in which it vet
stands) of a convicted calumniator. The President
distinctly stated, that he fell himself 44 culled on in
justice to Major Donclson and to truth, to pronounce the.
chnrfte (of ubusing the President's frank in circulating
newspapers and documents) a vh.k calumny, uksti
ARTICLK OK TIIK RkHeBi.ican.” This is the direct testi
mony of the President of the United Stales. Who will
dare to weigh the evasive, sliutlling, equivocating asser
tions ot the Nashville Republican, or the chief of its
prompters, against the direct, positive statements of An
drew Jackson ? The Republican deals in hints, conjec
tures, surmises and insinuations—the President speaks
uiofp bu said?
U’hen .Major Donclson's letter appeared in the Union,
containing now and additional proof—clear, convincing
and undeniable—oftlie utter falsity of the charges made’
by the Republican, the editor of that veracious print, in
stead of attempting to answer the refutation of his slan
ders which it contained, attempted to evade the necessi
ty of answering, by insinuating that Maj. Donclson hud
been assistetl in writing the letter by some other person.
I hi* poor shift to evade responsibility, certainly came
with u singularly bad grace from the Editor of the Repub
lican. Circumstances leave no doubt—as far as circum
stances can prove anv fact—oftlie manner in which most ol
the leading Editorials of that print are prepared, and Lu
whom Resides,all those who have the pleasure of Maj. D.'s
acquaintance, know that lie is a gentleman of superior
talents, and an accomplished scholar, who would in no
case condescend to borrow the assistance of i:?iy man',
pen. 'I his is known to no man better Ilian to the Editor
ot the Republican. Vet, by way of drawing off public
attention from the main fact, and to avoid tin- necessity
ot denying the truth, the insinuation, untrue as it is,lias
been snreringly made. The facts, however, stated by
Major Donclson, fixing a conviction of falsehood and
calumny on the Republican, stand proved and uncon
After humbly appealing to Mnj. Donelson, as a friend,
upon a former occasion, to recommend him to the Presi
dent as an applicant for the office of District At tonic, of
^ r* f°r- l^tt "/ TtnntBMcr., and which
M:i). 'D. d:d in good faith, on account of the “respecta
bility id ins connections, and his general standing as a
young I iwycr of promise,” it certainly illy becomes the
Kditor to re/iay the favor by ungenerous and ungrateful
abuse. It the Kditor felt sore and disappointed, because
the 1 resident bestowed the appointment on another, lie
certainly can find no ground in the rejection of his
application to excuse this unjustifiable abuse of the
triend who recommended him. All the world will con
cur in condemning such a course, as characteristic of in
gratitude. In the present instance, however, it is not
ingratitude ulune to Maj. Donelson, which has dictated
the course of the Republican. It is opposition .ini] se
cret hostility to the President—who refused the appoint
ment sought through Maj. Donelson— and which is not
telt and cherished alone by the Kditor, but by those wlm
arc far above him in the control of the course of Hint pu
per; The people understand, and will rightly appreciate
their motives and actions.
To sciolists and superficial lecturers on schools and
school discipline, the recommendation, by the Republi
can, cf certain passages of Maj. Donelson a letter, as
being suitable for certain school exercises, may appear
witty and smart. Rut, to candid and thinking men, who
look upon things in Uieir real and proper character, all
such Mile efforts, will be esteemed as mere Hubtei limes
to evade the force of truth—AWiri/Ie Union.

Defeated ami routed in the election of members to the

Some alarm has recently been created in Edgrcombu
and Johnston counties, by a letter without signature,
under dale of “Turborough, August Ullh,” which was
picked up in the streets of Smithfield, on the 1st insl.
and written in a poor hand, bad orthography, and worst*
diction. “It commences: “These lines is to let you
know that we had a splendid meeting on the 9th instant
and they nil gave their consent to join us und say that
they glad to think that the bloody work is close at hand
□ ml we say to you that we intend to loose our lives in
the attempt or gain all freedom,” Ac. Ac.
Committees of Vigilance were immediately appointed
in 1 urboro and throughout Ldgecombe county, and a
thorough iii i eoiigatiou of the matter has been made; but
no traces of the author of the letter, nor auy evidences
of evil designs on the part of the blacks, were discover
ed. 1*recaulion ami vigilance ate, however, recommend

We have heard it suggested, that the letter in ques
tion was probably wiitlen by some miscreant, who was
interested in depreciating the value of slaves, by weak

such gallows deserving wretches.— lb.

insl. says, “it is stated that the steam-presses of the line.
reran llibte Society are used for printing the newspapers
and pamphlets of the Abolitionists. If this bo so, the
Southern public can see to what purposes the thousands
ol dollars which they have contributed to tins Society,
arc approptiated. It- they use the presses of the Society,
doubtless the type aud all other materials are in their
service—a kind of co-partnership business—and lliusnrc
we made instrumental (by furnishing them money) in
disseminating incendiary publications throughout i ur
own territories. The Southern public should know the
truth of this matter, in order that if the managers mid
agents of the llibte Society are in collusion with the fa

, with many others, left that institution a year or two since
because they were not permitted to agitate on the sub
[ jeet of abolition, lias been seized by a mob, near his place
of residence in Kentucky, aud dreadfully whipped—
having received 30 lushes on his hare back, so heavily
laid on that they nearly cost him his life. The lelteis
add, that lie would actually have been murdered but for
the interference of some gentlemen, more moderate than
the lest, who insisted that he had already got enough._
Mr. 'I horn was one of the speakers at the abolition anni

in various other places at the North and Hast. What
may have been his course in Kentucky, on the subject of

A Si aheckow.—The residents in Brighton-street and
vicinity were a good deal ularmed yesterday morning, on
discovering a gallows erected in front of Mr. Garrison s
house, accommodated with cords, arranged with han.r
inan’s knots—and all that sort of thing, a l’a unable-as
it execution were to be “done on Cawdor.’’ It bore the
superscription, “By order of Judge Lynch.” It excited
considerable curiosity, und attracted u host of idlers, but
occasioned no excitement, although ft produced much
merriment. It was taken down ubout half past 10, in
nncent ol h1:i. It reminded us of a verse of
Sophomore poetry, that we used to repeat once with a
good deal of gusto, descriptive of the blazonry, or what
some “wise fools" thought ought to have been the es
cutcheon of the College, to wit:
Two sticks rampant,
One stick couchant,
One rope pendant,
Ami .‘Isbeer on the end on’t.
But this rope had nothing “on the end on’l,” and that
spoils the rhyme.— lloston transcript.
Of Mr. ILrncy’s intended Abolition publication in

Through the agency of a friend we are enabled to
present below to our readers the preliminaty remarks of
Judge I -irker, charging the Grand Jury for Ibis county,

hy the Judge, are such as the times and the condition of
our country demands.
Gentlemen of the. Grand Jam:
It pleased a kind Providence to permit ns to meet
once more in the discharge of our respective duties_The
first thing which naturally occupies the attention of a
Court of Justice is to see that the penal laws of the counti v
are duly enforced They are intended to guard our pro
perty Irom depredation and our poraons Irom outrage
objects winch have precedence both in reason and bv cus
tom over the civil business of the court. As the surest
and best means of bringing offenders against these laws
to punishment, Grand Juries are relied on; and you have
been convened from the different parts of your county
and had the oath administered toyo.,r foreman, whichcach

“ * *l"> inclined to the opinion, that the French Go

required explanation, since that letter has recticetl the. •
tire approbation' if the President. He assents to the full
declarations of Air. L. and to all his endeavors to satisfy
the french Ministers, that no menace or insult could
have been intended in the message. This is saying all
that reasonable men can expect; and if, after all, the
French Government do not avail themselves of it, 1
think they will discover their mistake, in the general
support which would he given by our whole comitry to
the position in which our government now stands in the
controvr rsy.

“1 am .almost alone in the opinion that our foolish
quarrel with France—or rather the foolish diplomacy of
last year—will be settled before December. But I think
so. As the thing now stands, 1 think the French Minis
ters will see that they are in a false position—the world
will not sustain them in demanding further satisfaction
for a disclaimed insult.
French Is-nmisii icatiov.—We frequently hear in
quiries as to the effect which Mr. Livingston's letter has
had on the French Government; uniT as the matter is
one of interest to all, we think it proper to stale for
genera! information, that the letter referred to, upprurrd
and ratified by the President of the United Stales, was
taken out hi the packet of the 8th of July, and arrived in
Havre on the day which the latest packet from Unit city
departed, so that ive have yet no means of judging of the
ctiifct which that letter has had upon the French (Jo
vernment. We cannot for a moment doubt that it will
be deemed fully satisfactory, and that the instalments al
ready due on the indemnification, will be paid The
matter is now with the King and Ministry, known to he
favorable to the treaty of their own creation, and hence
it would be injurious to the reputation of France to sup
