North Carolina Election.—Wc re
ceived on Saturday night, returns from
a portion of the fourth Congressional
District, which gave in August last, the
largest Van Buren majority for Gover
nor of any in the State; and from the
change which has been elfected in the |
counties heard from, we have every rea
son to believe,that Mr Shepard.the Whig
candidate, is elected by a considerable
majority. We have received correct in
formation from Wayne, Johnston and
Lenoir.—The latter gave a greatly di
minished Van Buren majority. Wayne,
which last year, gave the Van Buren
Candidate lor Governor 530 a majority,
has given to Mr Shepard, a majority of
115! In Johnston there has likewise been
a glorious change. At the election for
Governor, this county gave the Van
Buren Candidate 303 majority—it has
now given tne Whig Candidate for Con
gress a majority of269! Neither has the
town of Xewbern been behind hand, in
the work of regeneration. Last year it
gave a majority of 20 against the Whigs;
and it has now given their Candidate
113 majority! The remainder of Craven
Carteret, Jones and Green, are yet to
oe heard from; and in but one of them
is a majoiity calculated upon by the
Van Buren party. So we may con
fidently anticipate a large majority for j
Mr. Shepard; and congratulating the i
Whigs of Craven District proclaim the i
victory theirs.— Itateisk liesrister.
Sensible Ucmakks.—The billowing re- '
mark m relation to the war on hanks j
,tnd hack charters was made by Thomas ;
Kvving, in the course of a speech which!
h*-» delivered at Steubenville, Ohio, on the ;
;Vh ol Ju v: —‘ Let me tell you. gentlemen,•’ j
says he, "let me teil you, that the right to 1
repeal a charter of a bank, includes also •.
a right ol the very same body of men. or |
anv others, to repeal the tenure by w hich <
you hold your lands.your property,oryoiir |
very homes. Tnev are all nothing but'
paper and p-irchmeiit after all, and the j
title by wInch you retain your possessions j
is n«»t more sacred than the titie under
w hich a banking corporation prosecutes j
its business.”
General Murphy, of Ohh\ in a speech 1
to the peoph*, alluding t » the ruin which :
mis-government had brought upon the
c aintry. and tne comparative ease wiih
which the people mignt have averted it,
said—“They staid at home that they
m ght save the profits of a day’s labor,
when, by going to the polls thev could
have saved the hard earnings of twenty
years ”____
The I*lind —There are few inventions
of modern times which will compare in
interest with that of printing in raised
letters for the use of the blind. Cut of*
as this unfoitunate portion of our fellow
beings has been from the chief means of
| acquiring knowledge, the lot of the oliud
has been such as to excite our liveliest
; sympathies. The intelligence manifest
ed by many who from bitth have been
deprived of vision, shows how vasl a field
of mind has been left almost uncultivated
whilst the peculiar nicity and tenderness
of feeling often displayed by them, aifjril
positive proof that in the finer and more
tender emotions they are not a whit infe
rior to those who are blessed with sight.
lii>tances have occurred, it is true, of
considerable acquirements on the part of
individuals to w hom the gift of vision has
been denied, but they have been so few
in number as to be held up as rare illus
trations of what may be doin' in the way
o! gaining knowledge through the medi
um of hearing. Of this description of pre
sons there was a most striking instance
to be met with in a person who frequent
ed some year since ih*‘ walk that encirc e>
the r<>ck on wtdeh tin* castle of Sterling
stands This individual has been blind
from his birth, and was of course, illite
rate, but so great was the tenaciousness
of Ids memory that he seldom forgot any
thing that was related to him. IJis sur
viving parent, a widowed mother, being
as Scotch generally are, very attentive
to her religious duties, had been in the
habit of taking her afflicted son with
her to church from a very enriv age.—
Forced to relv on hearing exclusively,
the little fellow had listened so attentively
to what he heard read at home and in
public worship, that he could repeat
almost any passage of scripture if the
chapter and verse was named to him.—
W hat was peculiarly surprising was that
he usually carried in his hand a large
key, w fuel) he constantly” turned around
his finger, and by which his recollection
seemed to be materially aided, so much
so that when deprived of this kev to his
thoughts, as it might be termed, he be
came bewildered, and I<»st much of his
faculty in repeating. There are upon
record numerous accounts of blind per-j
sons who by the aid of touch could not
onlv form a correct idea of the form of \
whatever they handle, but could al<o dis- '
tinguish colors, Of these there fiave been 1
manv instances in the Blind Asylum at
Liverpool, where the pupils are engaged i
in making lwine and carpeting of vuri-1
oii-s descriptions. In the last named ma- :
nufactuie they appear to have pef’ect fa
cility in distinguishing the different colors I
ol the vain, and throw up the various!
tints with surprising accuracy. It wa>!
reserved however for the discovery oi
rai>ed letters to open tin* way f«*r tin*
blind as a class to acquire knowledge.—
Previous to tins invention, t!ie difficulty
attending the acquisition of information
was so great as to restrict the stock of:
learning within a small compass, and to j
an individual here and there. By causing
the bibie and other works to be printed
in characters raided above the surface,
the blind have been enabled to pursue a
regular course ol study and to gain ac I
cess to information wnich otherwise must1
have been lost to them. In this great mo- j
dern improvement, the novel method of
printing adopted by Dr. S. G. Howe, of
the New England Institute of the Blind,
has been found to be ot the greatest util
ity. Several works such as “The Blind
Child’s First and Second Book,” Mur
ray’s English Grammar, Spelling book, j
Geography for the use of the blind. Atlas
nf the United States, with statistical ta
bles, General Atlas containing maps of i
the principal countries with statistical
tables, and the Book of diogramsof i\a-,
tural Philosophy, have been printed under
the auspices of the Institution above
named. In these wmrks there are no
comparisons drawn from colors or light
or shade, or illustrations from merely
visible appearance.— Halt. Amer.

This Farm is as well adapted for gra
