Lord LvTTON.-Sir Edward G. Lytton B'nl
wer, recently gazetted Lord Lytton.was bom
at Haydon Ilay county of Norfolk, in 1805.
The strong literary tastes of his mother, who
was heiress of the Lyttons of Kncbsunth,
Hertfordshire, greatly contributed to the
formation of his mind, his father having
died when the future Lord Lytton was yet
young. He was educated by private tutors,
hut afterward entered Trinity Hall, Cam
bridge, where he graduated in 1826. He
gained the Chancellor's prize at the Univer
sity, for English versification, by a poem on
''Sculpture," in 1825, and the next year pub
lished a collection of youthful effusions, en
titled" Weeds and "Wild Flowers." His va
cations were occupied by pedestrian tour
through England and Scotland and a jaunt
on horseback over a part of France. In
1827. he published a poem called " O'Neill,
or the Rebel," and in the same year his first
novel, " Falkland," appeared anonymously.
In 1828 "Pelham" was published, and not
withstanding its originality and power, was
very adversely criticised in many quarters.
Almost every year thereafter until 18G0 he
gave the world some new literary work.
His harvest in the field of fiction was large,
and even the wider expanse of poetry and
drama was not left ungleaned. His first
plav, ki The Duchess de la Valieie," failed,
but " Richelieu," " Money," and " The Lady
ot" Lyons," were, on the other hand, remark
ably successful. In 1S44, having succeeded
to the estate of his mother, be exchanged by
royal license, his surname of Bulwer for that
of Lytton. In 1833, he entered the House of
Commons, member for the borough of St.
Ives, and immediately took place among the
ranks of the Reformers. In 1832, he was
elected by the city of Lincoln, which he con
tinued to represent until 1841, notwithstand
ing the fact that he acquired, through all
those years, very little parliamentary influ
ence. He was created a baronet in 1838,and
was defeated by the conservative candidates
for the borough of Lincoln in June, 1841,
and again in July 1 847. He, however, re en
tered Parliament as a member for the coun
ty of Herts, in the general election of 1852,
as a supporter of the Earl of Derby, and dis
tinguished himself by his opposition speech
es. In June, 1859, he became a member of
the Derby Cabinet as the successor of Lord
Stanley, in the office of Secretary of State
for the Colonies. Since then he has been
a supporter of the Earl, and has won by par
ty services the peerage with which he has re
cently been gifted, aud which he. doubtless,
in some measure, owes to the patronage of
his leader. Lord Lytton is not perhaps so
well known, if so highly respected, as was
Baron Macaulay, but he attains the peerage
under stronger circumstances than Baron
Houghton, another of his cotemporary liter
atcurs. He holds ranks in Parliament as a
brilliant speechmaker, but is regarded as
a cold orator and a statesman without con
victions. Dr. Chipler, Medical Superintendent of
the Eastern Lunatic Asylum of Kentucky, in
a late report, says :
'Society is daily becoming more artificial,
and new wants more imperative. Men's as
pirations are assuming a more impracticable
character, and sad disappointments are con
sequently more frequent and damaging.
Thousands who were -formerly happy and
contented in their humble avocations, have
been seduced by the spirit of the times, and
mighty struggles for the attainment of posi
tion, supposed to be conferred by wealth
alone. Too many are wrecked, and come to
spend the remnant of life in our wards."
The United States and England. In
a late speech Lord Stanley thus spoke of the
United States : "The United States, by its
extent, by its population, by its rapid in
crease, the energy and intelligence of its peo
ple, and lastly, by its display of military and
naval strength has come to rank among the
foremost powers in the world. I look upon
a proper and friendly understanding with
the United States as almost the first requisite
of English diplomacy. Hear, hear,. No
one power, except France, is so closely bound
to us by ties of public interest." -
The Beet Sugar Manufacturing Company,
at Chatsworth, Illinois, have 600 acres of
beets growing this year. They estimate the
crop at ten tons to the acre, which would
yield full one million pounds of sugar. The
machinery of the Company is all new, was
brought from Germany, and is in the most
perfect order. They will commence opera

The hail-storm in northern Illinois last week
was very destructive, and the hailstones in
size were beyond precedent. One was picked
up in Lanark three and ahalf inches in cir

Over four thousand lights of glass were bro

IRO.V-CLAD XI VIES.
Discission In the House of Commons.
Some disquietude is manifest in England
on account of the progress of other Govern
ments in constructing improved naval ar
rangements and the alleged indifference of
the Admiralty. In the House of Commons,
on the 20th ult., the subject was debated at
some length, a diversity of opinion being ex
pressed. The report in the newspaper press
Mr Samuda proceeded to call attention to
the present state of the navy, and to the very
small progress that has been made, especial
ly of late years, in its reconstruction with
iron-clad vessels, and to compare these re
sults with the great augmentation that has
taken place, and that is taking place in the
armor-clad navies of other States.
He said that it had taken seven years to
produce 21 iron-clad vessels, while France
had built 42 in in the same time. The Amer
ican navy would soon consist of 72 iron-dads.
So far behind other nations was this country
in naval force that no ordinary exertion
could in an emergency place us in the posi
tion in which we ought to be, that of hav
ing a fleet equal to those of all Europe com
bined. He suggested that a supplemental
estimate of 400,000 might be asked for.to,
be applicable to the building of twelve ves
sels during the recess, two of them being
two-turret ships, each carrying two 600-poun-der
guns, and th; other ten being one-turret
ships, carrying one 600-pounder. The total
cost would be about 1,000,000, which
might be spread over the estimates of there
Sir J. Pakir.gton said that the statement of
the disadvantageous position of the Eng-
usn navy relatively to those ot other coun
tries was rather understated ; even the Italian
iron-clad fleet, to say nothing that of France,
which had, in fact, 58 ships armor-clad, be
ing in comparison superior to our own
Russia had a large force.many of which were
turret ships, while America had no less than
7a ettective vessels ot war. Then Brazil,
Peru and Chili had adequate iron-clad
squadrons. In this state of things England
had only 33 of these ships, of which 30 were
afloat, ana only 6 building. He regretted
.that so long a time had elapsed before the
turret system was tried, and he had taken
steps to carry out the intention of the late
Admiralty in the construction of a ship that
a class by Capt. Cowper Coles ;and he hoped
that generally tne recess would be utilized
by the improvement of our iron-clad ships.
He pronounced in favor of turret-ships.
Mr. T. Q. Baring asserted that, apart from
coast-aeiense vessels, tue sea-going armor-
plated navy of Englgnd was far greater than
that of any other nation. We had a fleet of
26 ships of this class, and the French onlv 17,
With regard to guns, the 12-ton cannon and
I he other ordinance adopted in the naval
service were of the first description. He ar
gued that in the transition stare of ordinance
of late years it would have been unwise to
have built a large number of ships, and
showed that the late Admiralty had not in
fact been opposed to turret-ships.

the Secretary of War issued an order direct
mg an investigation as to the alleged out
rages of colored soldiers upon the citizens of
Helena, ans. inat investigation is being
made. Yesterday the President received the

DECLARATION OF PRINCIPLES
,'Thei UTational tTnloh Convention; now as--
sembled in the city of Philadelphia, compos
ed of delegates from every State and Territo
ry. in ihs Union, admonished by the solemn
lessons which, for the last five years, it has
pleased the Supreme Ruler of the Universe to
give to the American people, v profoundly
grateful for the return of peace, .desirous, as
are a large majority of their countrymen, in
all sincerity to foiget and forgive the past,
revering the Constitution as it comes io us
from our ancestors, regarding the Union, in
its retoration as more sacred than ever, look
ing with deep anxiety into the future as of
instant and continuing trial, hereby issues
and proclaims the following Declaration of
Principles and purposes on which they have
with perfect unanimity agreed :
First We hail with gratitude to Al
mighty God the end of war and the return
of peace to our afflicted and beloved land.
Second The war just closed has main
tained the authority of the Constitution with
all the powers which it confers and all the
restrictions which it imposes upon the
General Government, unabridged and unal
tered, and it has preserved the Union with
the equal rights, dignity and authority of
the United States perfect and unimpaired.
Third Representation in the Congress of
the United States and in the Electoral Col
lege, is a right recognized by the Constitu
tion as abiding in every State, and as a duty
imposed upon its people, fundamental in its
nature and essential to the exercise of our Re
publican institutions ; and neither Congress
nor the General Government has any author
ity or power to deny the right to any State or
withhold its enjoyment under the Constitu
tion from the people thereof.
Fourth We call upon the people of the
United States to elect to Congress, as mem
bers thereof, none but men who admit this
fundamental right of representation, and who
will receive to seats therein loyal representa
tives from every State in allegiance to the
United States, subject to the constitutional
right of each House to judge of the election,
returns and qualifications of its own mem
bers. Fifth The Constitution of the United
States, and the laws made in pursuance there
of, are "the supreme law of the land, any
thing in the Constitution or laws of any State
to the contrary notwithstanding." All the
powers not conferred by the Constitution up
on the General Government nor prohibited
by it to the States, are reserved to the States
or the people thereof, and simong the rights
thus reserved to the States is the right to pre
scribe qualifications for the elective franchise
therein, with which right Congress cannot in
terfere. No State or Convention of States
has the right to withdraw from the Union,
or to exclude, through their action in Con
gress or otherwise, any State or States from
the Union. The Union of these States is
perpetual, aud the authority of its Govern
ment is supreme within the limitations and
restrictions of the Constitution.
Sixth Such amendments to the Constitu
tion of the United States may be made bv
the people thereof as they may deem expedi
ent, but only in the mode pointed out by its
provisions,and in proposingsuch amendments
whether by Congress or oy a Convention,
and in ratifying the same, all the States of
the Union have an equal and an indefeasible
rifht to a voice and a vote thereon.
Seventh Slavery is abolished and forever
prohibited, and tuere is neitner desire nor
purpose on the part of the Southern States
that it should ever De re-esiaunsned. upon
the soil or within the jurisdiction of the Uni
ted States ; and the enfranchised slaves in all
the states ot tne jnion snoum receive, in
common with all their inhabitants, equal pro
tection in every rigut oi pen-on and property.
EiglUh While we regard as utterly inval
id, and never to be assume" or made of bind
ing force, any obligation incurred or under
taken in maiting war against the United
States, we hold the debt ot the Nation to be
sacred and inviolable, and we proclaim our
purpose in discharging this, as in performing
all other national obligations, to maintain
unimpaired and unimpeached the honor and
the faith ot the itepubiic.
Ninth It is the duty ot the National Gov
ernment to recognize the services of the Fed
eral soldiers and sailors in the contest just
closed by meeting promptly and fully all
their just and rightful claims for the servi
ces they have rendered the nation, and by
extending to those ot them who have sur
vived, and to the widows and orphans of
those who have fallen, the most generous
and considerate care.
Tenth In Andrew Johnson, President of
the Utited States, who in his great office has
proved steadfast in his devotion to the Con
stitution and the laws interests ot his coun
try, unmoved by persecution and undeserved
reproach, having faith unassailable in the
people and in the free government, we rec
ognize a Chief-Magistrate worthy of the na
tion and equal to the great crisis upon which
his lot is cast ; and we tender to him in the
discharge of his high and responsible duties
our profound respect, and assurances of our
cordial and sincere support.
These resolutions were received, as each
was read, with great applause ; and they
were adopted by the unanimous vote of the
Convention, followed by loud and long con
Gossip about the House of Lords.
The House of Lords, at present, is com
posed of 432 members including the Bishops.
Many of their rules of order differ from those
observed in the Commons. In debate, those
who speak address the whole House, and not
the Lord Chancellor, who presides. A mo
tion made need not here, as in the Commons,
be seconded. The Peer who sits on the
" woolsack," or in the chair of committees,
lias no duties to perforin during the delib
erations of the House except to put the
question. He is not the judge or. guardian
of order. If several Peers rise together, the
House decides who shall first be heard. The
Speaker, or Deputy Speaker, of the Lords is
not disqualified ex officio from taking part in
the debate. Peers vote either in person, us
ing the words "content" or " not content"
to signify their appro val or rejection of the
question before them, or by proxy a signed
paper to the same effect used upon their be
half in their absence by some other Peer.
All laws relating to the rights of their or
der must be originated in the House of Lords.
No Peer, I may add, can be arrested for
debt. There is a fund, I believe, in existence,
out of which poor peers receive enough to
keep them from destitution. I know a peer
at this moment, who lives in a little house
near London, keeping but ono servant. He
is a sort of preacher among the Evangelical
Dissenters. As the Supreme Court of justice
in the kingdom, the House of Lords is the
last tribunal of appeal from the judgement
ot the other courts. Practically speaking,
however, this jurisdiction is not exercised by
the House as body, but by three or four of
its members who iiold or have held high ju
The statement of the public debt of the
United States on the 1st inst., is published.
It shows the total debt to be over $2,000,600,

including $61,000,000 in coin, is over $137,

TUESDAY,-7- A AUGUST 21. I860.
But, people of North-Carolina ! such a
Union as the Radicals commend to our lips,
such a Union as W. W. Holden and his sup
porters commend to us, such a Union as Dan
iel R. Goodloe and his " Southern loyalists"
commend to us, slinks in the nostrils of every
true American. It would be more poisonous,
more destructive to American liberty, than
the blightening effluvia of the bolwn-upas is
to animal life. Sentinel.
We rather think, gentlemen, you will have
to take pretty much such a Union as the one
above described. Names, no matter how odi
ous, have no terrors for us. We look at princi
ples, we are governed by principles, and we
care nothing for names that may be given ua
by our opponents. We went "with the
multitude to do evil " in 1861, but we shall
never do so again. We are "devoted "to
the Union. We have our wishes as to the
manner in which it should be restored. It is
natural that we should desire the best terms
that can be obtained for our State ; but the
Union, come to us as it may, is preferable to
secession, to anarchy, and renewed civil war.
Under any and all circumstances the Union
would be the lesser evil. This is our plat
form, gentlemen. It may "stink "in your
nostrils. We should not wonder if it did.
But ybu are not " Americans." You have
little stake in what is called " American lib
erty." You are sectionalists. You never
rise to the level of nationality. You are
merely South-Carolinians, not even North
Carolinians, for there is still an odor of na
tionalitythere is still love of the Union in
our good old State. You are still living in
the past, gentlemen. You had "liberty"
oh did ye not have " liberty " under Mr. Da
vis ? That is the sort of" liberty " you want.
You founded your new government on the
rights of the States, and in less than two
years Mr. Davis had trampled all the life
out of your State rights. You said amen I
great is Davis ! He tithed you, he conscript
ed you, he caused hundreds of our people to
be shot and hanged he told you to repudi
ate your currency, and you did it he sent
his agents to your corn-cribs and smoke
houses, to rob you of your last grain of corn
and pound of meat, while these agents rode
fat horses and lived like lords, he told you
in his Constitution of government that vou
had a right to secede, and then told vou if
you attempted it he would make war upon
you. he made white slaves of you with the
view of perpetuating black slavery; and this
you called " liberty "for this you shouted
"great is Davis and our beloved Confed
eracy I" You are not prepared, gentlemen,
to appreciate " rrue American liberty." Your
necks are still raw from the collar which you
wore during the rebellion. You would be
slaves to a section and to a miserable abor
tion called " a Confederacy," but you have
no judgment to appreciate, and no heart to
receive what is known in this country as
true, American, constitutional liberty.
The Union, as proposed to be restored,
"stinks in the nostrils" ot Gov. Worth and
his organ. Let this be remembered. Let the
Congress remember it, when Gov. Worth and
his partizans shall approach that body, hat
in hand, and beg to be relieved of the disa
bility imposed on them by the proposed con
By the way, when the people of a State
vote for a candidate for Governor, they ought
to know, as far as they can, that he is quali
fied and will be allowed to serve. How is it
with Gov. Worth ? If the proposed consti
tutional amendment should be adopted, Gov.
Worth will be excluded by it from holding
office. Will the Congress relieve him of this
disability ? We feel sure it will not. Every
vote, therefore, which may be cast for him
will be cast in the dark.
Our good old State has often been repre
sented in national Conventions, but, some
how or other, she is not estimated as she
should be. The delegates reach the place
selected either too early or too late, in many
instances; and it always happens that the
name of some delegate, not without consid
erable reputation at home, is so altered or
misspelt in the proceedings as to leave the
impression that some new and unknown per
son has taken on himself the grave responsi
bility of representing our people. For ex
ample, in the late Philadelphia Convention,
our respected and most respectable and loyal
friend, the Hon. Nathaniel Boyden, is per-
sistenly put down in the proceedings as A.
Yowden. We find evn the Petersburg Ex
press, which prides itself on its North-Caro
lina connections, making this absurd mis
take. The Express owes it to our State and
to Mr. Boyden to correct this mistake. Vir
ginia is all right, West Virginia is all right,
South-Carolina is all right the names of
committee-men from those States are cor
rectly printed ; but North-Carolina is always
sure to be wrong, as on this occasion. We
protest against it. Mr. Boyden, we are sure,
does not care any thing about itj but then
his friends do. They do not like to see him
paraded over the whole country as one A.
Vowden, who attended the Convention as one
of the delegates from North-Carolina.

A Refreshing Rain. We had a good
rain in this locality on Sunday night last.
It was much needed. ' We hear that the corn

appearance of the clouds that the rain waa

Emigration from North.Carolina.
We regret to have-i-to-recopd the fact that
emigration still continues from North-Caro-luia.
,-Hundreds ot our best people are leav
ing for new. and distant .regions, where they
liope to better their condition. Previously
to the rebellion these people were prosperous
contented. , and happy. As stated by our
correspondent, the war with its exactions and
oppressions, laid the foundations of their
ruin ; but there was hope that their fortunes
might be repaired that they might be able
still to make a comfortable support and to
educate their children. They have clung to
this hope as long as they could. They are
loth to leave their native land; but when
they look around and see the State school
fund gone, and think of the high taxes, and
see their dilapidated and impoverished farms
and above all, when they reflect that the
State government has passed into the hands
of men who are doing all they can to exas
perate the South against the North, and to
prevent the restoration of the Union and
thus to cut off all hope of future prosperity
it is no wonder that their hearts fail them
and they are inclined to seek their fortunes'
in new countries. We deplore the causes that
have led to this emigration, and we trust the
period is-not distant when these causes will
cease to operate.
The Greensboro' Patriot was once a Union
paper. A majority of the people of Guilford,
and of the section of country in which the
Patriot circulates, are still devoted to the
Union; but that paper has passed under
strange influences, and its recent and present
course is not such as should commend it to

Why these slurs from the Patriot? Did it
devote as much ink to the inculcation of
truth, and correct principles, as it does to

the land for good. Verily, the clioue whom
the Patriot serves are hard masters.
The cholera is said to have reached Rich

We are in receipt of the Typographic
Messenger, issued by James Conner's Sons,
N. Y. It is a beautifully pnnted monthly
and contains much useful information for the
New Cotton. Mr. Archibald Powell
who is cultivating a plantation on Swi"ft
Creek, seven miles southwest of Raleigh
brought in on Monday morning about one
dozen open bolls of new cotton. This is the
first cotton of this year's cron. of which w
have heard in this State.
Mr. Powell says that his cotton was plan
ted on the 27th of April, and the first boll
which he saw open, was on the lfith inst.
Since that time he has picked a good deal
from his fields.
Mr Powell is no doubt ahead of the whole
State in producing the first boll of cotton
the present season.

The vote on the New Constitution in 67"
Counties foots- up as follows :
Majority thus far to reject, 3,348
The following Counties remain to be beard
from : Ashe, Brunswick, Cherokee, Clayr
Davidson, Gates, Haywood, Henderson,
Hyde, Jackson, Macon, Madison, McDowell,
Moore, Polk, Randolph, Surry, Transylvania,
TyrelL Watauga, and Yancey. These Coun
ties have given about 2,500 majority for the
Constitution. It has, therefore, probably
been rejected by about 1,000 majority.
The Virginia Springs. We understand
from a gentleman who reached here last eve
ning from Rockbridge Alum Springs, that
the u umber of visitors there is about four
hundred. At the White Sulphur and at the
Warm Springs there are about one hundred,
and fifty each.
We are sorry to learn that Govenor More

Rockbridge Alum about two weeks ago, in
quest of relief from an attrck of jaundice,
has declined in condition, and is in very
critical and unpromising circumstances.

The next objects receiving the " atten

and stable. The house was 24 by 24 feet,
two stories high, in which were himself and.
family , but it was taken np bodily and
borne a distance of eight rods- and then set
down again in " good order," not a person
hurt, nor a single piece of crockery nor any
thing displaced. The stable was torn to
atoms, the horses that were in it were left un
hurt. A gentleman in Washington has received
