FOR THE NORTH CAROLINA STANDARD Which of those many Mansions, Love 7 By G. Z. Adams. Which of those many Mansions, love, Shall be our changeless home al last 1 Beside what waters shall we rove, When life's mysterious dream is past ? Whither the uncag'd dovelet flee, To isles in summer beauty drest? Where 'mid yon ambient sparkling sea, Its folded pinions sweetly rest? Full many a soft savannah lies, Amid yon curtain'd realms I ween, Where bland Eolian zephyrs' sighs, Forever fan their fadeless green ; Full many an Eden's bright repose, Where seraphs'sacred numbers ring, Then whither love, when life shall close, Shall soar our mated spirit's wing ? North Carolina. 1S10. THE PRINTER. Know ye the Printer's hours of peace ? Know ye an hour more fraught with joy Than ever felt the maid of Greece, When kissed by Venus' am'rous boy ? 'Tis not when news of dreadful note, Hi3 columns ail with minion fill 'Tis not when brother printers quote The effusions of his stump worn quill. 'Tis not when in Miss Fancy's glass. Long advertisements meet his eye, And seem to whisper as they pass, We'll grace your columns by and by. Nor is it when with numerous name:, His lengthened roll of vellum swells, As if 'twere touch'd by conjurer's wand, Or grew by fairy magic spells. No, reader, no the Printer's hour, His hour of real, sweet repose, Is not when by some magic power, His list of patrons daily grows ; But oh! 'tis when stern winter drear, Comes robed in snow, and rain, and vapor, He hears in whispers soft and clear, " We've come to pay you for your paper." was'a first-rate swordsman, so that it would be a mere touch ir. the swordarm. I unew better, and I told M'Shane what I was quite sure of. that to put Downey up be fore a first-rnte swords man was to put him up to be assassinated. Af ter tfie provocation he had received, knowing nnthliirr nf i.nru,cr hrt WOUIU TUSH Upon niS . - . .. .i l man; and as renenmen are now rauier uwuiw fight in Englishmen who can't knee, Vifvit would back a lew steps, ana men be positively obliged lo run him ihrough the heart in his own defence. I n nni'.'.lt-d to M'Shane whether he thought it likely that an Englishman would be satisfied with bring disarmed, after having had a Frenchman's rheum vented in his face. I gave it also as my ultimatum that unless the duel was fought with pistols I should withdraw my man. "This is more serious than I expected. I will never stated by and see a man assassinated. But I must say a word lo my principal." I If tinned away from me, and I was left alone with the old General and his friend. This was what I had dreaded. I had rather, at that mo ment, have had a dozen pistols pointed at my bre;ist than meet that old man's eye. It was not to be avoided, however. I positively shuddered j like a guilty schoolboy, as he came towards me. j I plucked up a little courage, however, and felt J inclined to have rtconrseto a high tone and ! rage, but my courage all oozed away when my : eve met his. If he had only come forward with i vehemence and anger, I d ire say I could have ; siven hinf buck his stare with trie most orthodox ; impudence. But when I looked upon him, I saw not a revengeful hut a h?arl-brokeii man. j lis eye w-.s sunken, his ch-.ek was hollow, his j hand was tremulous and I had heard enough i of the General's career to know that this could not be from any thing approaching to fear. Shall I go on and tell you what I did, Sat? lam almost ashamed, and 'I know you will j l.iuy h at me, and perhaps call me a paltroon ; hut p!n my soul I could net help it. 1 he haughty defiance I h id prepared stuck in my throat, and I positively fell on my knees before the old m.ui L could not stand before that sad "General.-' I said, "shoot me, stab me in This was too horrible to witness. We were separated by force, but no one now attempted to hinder us. The pistols were already loaded, and we needed no assistance to take our stations. I waited for no word; but cried " Avancey. sacre assassinate," & strode at once up to the bar rier. There I stood, determined to have the first shot. I had not bug to wait, for the French man, who had lost all his coolness, did the same. My finger was almost feeling the trigger, I had covered him. as I thought, to a certainty, when the pistol fell from my hand, and I - felt a dead stunning blow upon the shoulder. He had fired. Strangeas it may seem I suppose I was at the moment mad 1 did-not think about the cause of the pistol failing. Owing. I suppose, to my not having, in my haste, set the hair trigger, the pistol had not gone off. - I tried lo stretch forth my hand to pick it up but fell as I attempted it. My eye, heart, soul, were still; however, fixed upon my opponent; I seized the weapon with my left hand, and as I lay upon the ground, levelled it and discharged it. The ball entered his brain. I saw him fall, and swooned. But, it being discovered in the Convention, by the above vote, that Gen. Harrison was ihe stron gest Candidate, a resolution was introduced to the following effect: . - . Resolved. That Gen. Harrison receive the. unanimous nomination of this Convention. And because Southern Delegates agreed to this Resolution, the Federal papers have had the temerity and iujustice to charge Mr. Sau'n ders with a falsehood, knowing at the same time, as they must have done, that it was with out foundation. But quibbling is the master move of that parly in the game they are now playing, and we are not much surprised at this one. eye. . all ir you will you snail if voti have mercy in THE END OF THE ROUE. The coachee cracked his whip, and as we rumbled and jolted along over the rough pave ment, and through the narrow streets r.f Paris, both Downey and myself preserved for a long time a moody silence. The tragical death of Anna had thrown a weight upon me, with which the constitutional buoyancy of my spirits strove in vain. D twney, for same less apparent reason, appeared equally grave. He had that dogged, determined air upon him, which I have noticed that Englishmen always wear upon oc casions of this sort; differing in this respect so essentially from the French, who never appear to allow themselves a single moment for reflec tion after they have accepted a challenge. We had roue on in this moody silence for, a long lime, and the lumbering fiacre had already traversed the long drive in the Rois de Boulogne, which 13 so crowded with English equipages and English horses in the middle of the da-, when Downey let down the window, and there by lt in a draft of morning air. " "This must be near the spot," he said, thrust ing his head out of the window; "yes, there's the cafe they spoke of. Arretrz, arretez." he called out to the coachman, and the fiicre stop ped. "Pay him his fare, Frank." I gave the fellow two five franc pieces, and told him to wait till we returned. "This must be the path," said Downey. "Vifvit said it led off to the right, about two hundred yards this side of the cafe." We struck into it, and the sharp cold wind seemed to whistle through every button-hole of my peacoat as we walked through the little dwarf trees, of which this so called "wood" is composed. We walked for ten minutes. At last we arrived at an open space, and Downey standing still, commenced the process of light ing a cheroot ;. venting at the same lime a series of most potent curses upon Frenchmen, the French language, and above all, French direc tions for finding places, "D n the blackguard," he muttered between his teeth, after half a dozen whiffs.. "I must have missed the path." Finding Downey wa3 uot inclined lo be very eommunicativPi I had lit a segar also, and iat upon the stump of a tree. We sat there for about a quarter of an hour, Downey holding his watch in his hand, and keeping a sharp look-out in all directions. "Here they come," he cried at last, and two men emerged from the bushes at the distance of about a hundred yards. They had hardly come half a dozen paces to wards us before they were followed by two oth ers, one of whom I at once recognized as Buter bun. The other I also knew. lie was a young Irishman whom I had often met at the General's house. "Frank," said Downey, as they approached, "the nff.iir between me and this Frenchman comes offfirst. You must act as my friend in this, and I'll do the same with you afterwards." "Lome, come, Jack," said 1, "you've nothing at all to do with this business. It belongs to me, and I don t intend to let it slip out of my hands. This Vifvit is mine " "Hell and furies, man," exclaimed Jack, turn ing upon me as though he would strangle me, "do you think 1 came here to be mide a fool of by a mealy-faced peace of mortality like you? What have you got to do with this fellow ? Did he ever spit in your face ?" "Nonsense, Jack that's-all a hum." "Such a hum, that by the immortal powers, if I. had not a near prospect or washing the place where he spat with his heart's blood, I'd rush upon the filthy beast this moment, and tear him piecemeal." Downey looked quite grand and heroic in the intensity of his rage. The parties came up. The Frenchman's se cond turned out to be a tall man, well known in Paris; an Englishman, or perhaps I should rather say an Irishman, by extraction, but a Frenchman by education. He even speaks En glish with a foreign accent. I knew him. A quarrelsome dog as ever breathed, but an excel lent fellow with friends, whose quarrels he usu ally insisted upon taking upon himself; and as he was an excellent shot and a fatal swordsman, it was much safer to be in his company as an acquaintance than as a stranger. 1 kept my eye upon this man, as I walked up to him and introduced myself as Downey's friend. M'Shane, for that is his name, seemed to think it a good joke. His friend, he said, this disgraceful position have vour revenge but j von, don i look at me or speak to me. " The old man raised me up, locked at me for a I moment, and burst into tears. "Boy," he said, "vou are safe from me; 1 did not come hereto revenge myself, but her." " You mistake me sir," I cried. But he had turned awav lrom me, and I was hardly con- i scions of the contest which took place. Buter- : bun and his friend insisted, I believe, upon the first encounter wiih the Frenchman, but Vifvit, after a short time, nut a stop to all further enn- FflOM THE WESTERN CAROLINIAN. MARK THE DIFFERENCE. We have no notion of standing quietly by, and seeinf the al lodged political sins of Mr. Van Buren used as a ladder by which Gen. Harrison is to climb into the Presidency. Air. Van Buren is charged with entertaining equiv ocal sentiments in regard to the movements of the Abolitionists, although his political friends point to his repeated declarations, his pledges, and his acts of hostili'yto the doctrines of those fanatics, to disprove the charge. Yet the Hir risonites strive to lift up their candidate, by a comparison of the opinions of the two. Well, gentlemen, we are willing to grant yoa jany advantage you may think you can . derive lrom even tins test; (or, we opine, you iniguius well attempt to extract oil frorr. turnips as to make political capital for Harrison ou; of the comparisoji of his sentiments with those of Mr. Van Buren. Here is the language of Both, in juxtaposition ; mark the difference : HARRISON. VAN BUREN. "Should I be asked Letter to Mr. Gxcyn, if there is no way by which the General Go vernment can aid ihe cause of emancipation, I answer that it has long been an object near my heait to see j the whole of its surplu? revenue appropriated to this object.

" Do you understand that?" I asked my friend. "To be sure I do make haste don't keep us here all this morning." I marked the ground and took care that Dow ney should have a large mass of trees behind him, so that his antagonist should have no con spicuous object to help him in his shot. I mark ed the extremities: of the twelve paces by lines drawn in the earth. The men were then placed, and were told to turn round, and retire each nine paces. " What's the use of going any further off," muttered Downey " we aint going to fight with mortars. I shan't turn my back upon any b Frenchman." and Jack accordingly took short steps backwards. The Frenchman took nine good long strides. The pistols were then put into their hands. " Are you ready ?" said M'Shane. "Advance I" this was a word which both parties under stood. No sooner was the word given than Downey marched at once up to the line, and levelled his pistol. The Frenchman did otherwise. He advanced also, but it was by a quick zigzag mo tion, stepping from side to side, and never ad vancing more than six inches each jump. By this means he distracted his adversary's aim. Downey stood still at the barrier, his eye upon the sight of his barrel, and his finger upon the trigger, but he appeired to be unable to gel the certain aim that he wanted. I watched him with an intensity, an agony of excitement his arra appeared motionless us an iron bar. The Frenchman was never still for a moment; he was still not half his distance, although he had been jumping about for nearly a minute. At length I saw that Jack was growing impatient, and as I took my eye for a moment from him, to look at his adversary, I heard the report of his pistol. The Frenchman staggered, and 1 leapt up into the air." "Thank God he's hit hi.n." I looked to see him fall. Downey heard what I said, for I stood withinl three yards of him. " No b t him, I've missed him," he said throwing the pistol with violence on the ground. " Gardez vous, Monsieur," said the scoundrel, waving me away as he walked up to the barrier on nis sioe, and coolly examined the cap upon his pistol. I made no answer, for I had not even breath enough to curse him. I fixed my eye upon Downey. He did not flinch or even blanch he appeared only boiling with rage. The merciless villain must have been at least ten seconds deliberating upon his aim. At last the report came Downey staggered two paces back, and fell. I caught him in my arms. " He's done it. I'm booked for the knackers, Frank. It's all over with Jack Downey. D d his luck; hut don't let him get off, old fellow." Jack said all this with his old air. " By Heaven he shall not, Jack. You shall yet live to see it." "No it's all up. I've got it here. Better luck "the sentence was stopped by a gush of blood from the mouth, andDowney lay a lifeless lumn in mv arms. j 1S40 The subject eman cipation) is i:i my judgment exclusively under the control of the Stale Governments; and I am not apprized, nor do I believe, that a contrary opinion, to an extent deserving con sideration, is entertain ed in any pirt of the United States. The charge, therefore, to which you have had the goodness to call my attention, "that I am in favor of an intefer ence by Congress in manumiting your slave property," is destitute of foundation. So far from it, I do not see on what authority the Gen eral Government could interfere without a change of the Constitu tion, eithei at the in stance of one or all the slave-holding Stales." Now reader look on this picture, then on that! Uen. Marnson believes Congress " can aid the cause of emancipation." ' by appropriating the people s money to that object : While Mr Van Buren believes the subject of emancipation is exclusive. y under the control of the State Governments, where slavery exists: and that Congress has no sort of right to interfere, with out a change of the Constitution " Now we are willing every intelligent, dispas sionate man, should decide for himself, which of the two, judging from the foregoing, holds sen timents most consonant with the rights and safety of the South.

Saunders', " Letter of Ac ceptance" to the Convention, which nominated him as the Democratic Candidate for Governor ol this State, it is si id that "the Delegates from no Southern State in the Harrisburj?

Ever ready at finesse, and never willing to do justice to an op ponent, trie federal party are more than usual ly busy in endeavoring to find means to lessen the popularity of Mr. Saunders.
