AboliUon Whigs. Did not the know these things lobe so 1 Why, theo, hf ne ker tnem fnm nis reaa'e The following w Resolution offered in the Sy I 01 'c r?f . - fr. racuse Contention by Mr. Duer, and for the rejection , of which- tne substitution of one endorsing Sew arj by that body, Mr. Duer, Mr. Granger and some forty others withdrew: Resolved, That while the Whig party of New York, remain unalterably opposed to the extension of Slavery, over Territory now free, and hare no doubt of the Constitutional power of Congress to prohibit such extension, a liberal spirit of toleration should be exercised in regard to conflicting opinions touching measures which have been adopted by Congress for the adjustment of the question, arising from our late j territorial acquisitions: tha I we rejoice in the Umis- sion of Californta a. a free State, and are prepared to j acqu.esce in the recent action or Congress for the psulement of the Boundary Line between New Mexico and Texas, and the creation of Territorial Governments for New Mexico and Utah, in the ennfi- j dent belief that these acts of conciliation will result in i the exclusion of Slavery from the Territory ceded by Mexico to the United States, and at the same time tend to restore those cordial sentiments and fraternal ties which ought ever to be cherished between the differ ent sections of our commwn country. This Resolution, it will be seen, is bitterly hostile to the South. It rejoices over the free State of Cali fornia, expresses acquiescence in the Boundary and Tenitorial Bills, in the " confident belief" that Slave ry will also be excluded from the remaining Territo ries ; hut not one word is said about the Fugitive j Slave Law ! This, then, is the Duer platform the I , n - .. . ' -.- r-M... .... w. too narrow for the Seward men who nominated Wash inirton Hunt. But this is not all. The following Re solution was also offered by Mr. Duer on the part of the seceding Whigs, and rejected by the Sewardites, because it was not strong enough : "Resolved, That the Whijrs of New York, have cmfulrnee in the honest purposes and patriotic motives which animated the IVhis Senator and Representatives from this State in the Federal Legislature, uprto the embarrassing questions which have been agitated dur ing the present Congress: that we recognize in their course and conduct an earnest desire to seek the per manence and advancement of the best interests of the Union ; and althoegh, in the conscientious discharge of their duty, they have feit constrained to adopt dif fering and antagonistic views, we admire the hones ty and approve the candor and tolerance with which, upon exciting qneetions they have nevertheless differ ed like brethren.' Here Seward is endorsed as an " honest ' man and a " patriot" by these very seceding Whigs, so much glorified by the Register; and the opinion is ex pressed that he had been actuated in his course in Congress by an ' earnest desire to seek the perma nence and advancement of the best interests of the Union "! ! But, as we have said, even this would not do; the Sewardites demanded a direct Jand unequivocal endorsement of their champion, and they would have it. This was too much for the Duer and Granger men, for the simple reason that it would inflict a stab on the Whig President, Mr. Fillmore, Seward's rival ; and for the further reason that it would give the alarm to the Southern Whigs, who really hate Seward, and thus break up " national Whigism. Messrs. Duer and Granger were willing to endorse Mr. Seward in a certain way, as the above Resolutions conclusively prove; but here, as a matter of policy, they desired (o stop. Well, what was the next step ? The Fill more men assembled in Convention at Utica passed a parcel of milk-and-water Resolutions published an Address of the same sort, in which they approve all the 44 Adjustment " measures but the Fugitive Slave Lam and nominated Seward's right hand man (Mr. WnakSnrfnn UnnA fnr Hnvarnnr with a full Lnnwl. ... .. ; en vr ma, iii: unit " i ... iiia i .hk ..... . , , . . v . , n,nnn nf tl, Svrar-iiap Hnnventirm. and also exnress- t ......... ... j - ' - , : r. j :.: .u i? :.; cm r ... ing Ills ueciueu uppueuiuii iu me Hi,i,n uic uan. , 1'hs party was now reconciled ; 44 national Whigism was again on its legs, and all 44 true Whigs " out South were expected to. throw up their caps and shout. The following extract from Mr. Hunt's letter of ac ceptance, will show the grounds he occupies on the Slavery question : 44 1 should be wanting in candor if I omitted to say that deplore the pottage of the fugitive slave law, in its present form. Recognising to the fullest extent the constitutional obligation which it is intended to enforce, 1 regret the features of this bill which are calculated not to arrest agitation, but to make it more intense and universal. It emsldnot have been well con sidered, and NEEDS E8SENTIAL MODIFICATIONS. The summary operation of its provitiont eonflir.tt with all mtr notions of personal right and security, derived from the common law and recognized by every free constiiu ft'on." And the following extract from Greelys Tribune will show how delighted the Abolition Whigs are with Mr. Hunt's nomination : "The followingeorrespnndenee between Hon. Fran cis Granger and Hon. Washington Hunt, the whig candidate for governor, will explain itself and electri fy every whig heart. Mr. Hunt, h will he seen, though most anxious for nnion and harmony in the whig ranks refuses to repudiate the Syracuse nomi nation, to censure the whig State convention, or to denounce its acts and resolves, whether relating to principles or persons. He cannot perceive why an anti-slavery whig is not as truly "national" as a pro slavery one. He is adverse to all political assaults by New York upon the cherished institutions of sister States, bnt insists that slavery shall not be extended, and that the fugitive-slave bill ought to be repealed or essentially modified. Read, whigs, and move on with locked shields and joyous heart, to victory ! New ork must repudiate her whole history, as well a her cherished principles, when she repudiates Washington Hunt!" This is what the Raleigh Register, calls u national " Whigism. How many North Carolinians will ap prove such Whigism ? The Richmond Times, one of the oldestand ablest Whig papers in the country, thus notices these Whig movements in New York. Speaking of the above extract trom Mr. Hunt's letter, it says Nn .k.ii.(. . . . . upon this language 1 We have aiftid it i;iyicMMuu is lainv tone n acert again, being sincerely anxions to discover That it is .c irue gram or national Whig principles ; but, to our apprehension it admits of no construction which Southern men should palliate, much less approve.

Union of that State than all the abolition manifestoes that have been promulga ted tince the begining of the anti-slavery agitation. Its obvious and unquestionable meaning is, that Mr. Hunt seconds the movement already set on foot by Seward and other politicians of the same class, for the repeal of the Fugitive bill, or such a modification of it ae will make it utterly nugatory. Our ears must be stopped, and our eye. must be sealed, if we fail to perceive that this i. now to be the grand issue between Fanataeism and Southern security. We see the Oswego Convention of Abolitionists and runa ways appropriately assuming the van of the repeal movement. We see the Whig Convention of Mas sachusetts declaring that the law must not stand, and that the principle of trial by jury in the free States must be insisted upon. We see the majority in the New York Convention, which nominated Mr. Hunt, applauding Seward for every part ot his conduct as Senator, and thus sustaining that hateful agitator's avowal that a higher law than the constitution will be enforced by the Northern people when they are called to deliver up fugitives from slavery. Within the last week, we have seen a religious convocation at Pittsburg pretesting against the law and sanction ing disobedience to its behests ; and a Federal judge I in Philadelphia, catching at every quibble to with hold trom a Southern man, what that tudge knew to be his property. With such evidences of the ten- dency of Northern sentiment at this time, is it a thing : k JTi SAT"?"1?

Ocean Steamships. The Arctic, the third of the splendid Collins line of American Steamers, made her trial trip from New York on the broad bosom of the Atlantic, last week. She is about three hundred tons larger than either the 44 Atlantic " or 44 Pacific," with engines of proportionally superior power. It is said that so far as nautical science is now under stood, nothing could add to the perfection of this 44 flying palace ol the seas. Six hundred and fifty thousand dollars have been expended in her construe- tion. She is nearly four thousand tons ; and is lar- . ger, has more power, more beauty, and more strength ; than any other Steamer afloat. j ! Arthuh's Home Gazette.

W e have received a letter- from a Correrpondent in Philadelphia, says the Washington Union, well ac quainted with the facta of the ease and the proceed ings that occurred prior to the discharge of the fugi tive slave in that city by the circuit court of the Uni ted States, in which Judge Grier expressed his re markable opinion to which we have hitherto alluded.

It it one of inter est to the owners of fugitive slaves. The counsel H. W. Tener, Esq., who was engaged for the claim ant haa been very unjustly censured for his manage ment of this ease, as is stated by our correspondent: Philadelphia, Oct. 24, 1850. The defective point in the case of the claimant arose in this way : Mr. Tener offered letters testa mentary, granted in 1840, under the seal of the or phan's court, but not certified under the act of Con gress of 1793. The act of 1850. called the fn;tiv. slave law, repeals this mode of authentication, and prescribe, that the seal of any court bavin one'shall i be enough to establish the competency of the proof. e point was suggested by Judge Kane that this seal was not affixed to the paper sinte the pottage f the act, f 1850, and Judge Grier acquiesced in the ob jection ; and for this reason alone the paper was ruled out. The fugitive-slave law is silent as to the period coinet nd "Sid 'ule of construction, the court was right Yet it was such a construction as would have been Pven in n ther "ad "po been a horse or an ox, the objection would have been scouted as ridiculous.

The undersigned has for many years been collecting and condensing the material for this work. The archives of oar own State have been carefully examined, and co pious extracts made from its records. He has procured from the offices of the Board of Trade and Plantations in London many valuable documents. Rare and valuable works have been purchased from abroad, touching the early history of our State, and each County, which have never seen the light.

Occasional extracts have been published in the Standard and other paper of this State, over the signature of " Tacitus.'" The History of North Carolina is yet to be written. The remark which one ol the ablest Historians of the age, (Bancroft,) has been compelled to make, that " so carelessly has the History of North Carolina Itcen writ ten that the name, merits and eud of the first Governor ! is not known, is a reflection upon us.
