The President prefaced the sixth Regular Toast with some remarks, highly complimental to General Saunders. He alluded to the fortunate and satisfac tory manner in which he had performed his duties as Minister PlenepotentiaTy to a foreign Court, and spoke of the general gratification experienced at his ieturn, with his family, to his native State. He said it afforded him sincere pleasure to be present on an occasion like this, and to preside at a Festival given as a testimonial of respect for a worthy citizen and a faithful public servant; and this pleasure was height ened when he called to mind the zeal and the ardor with which our distinguished guest, just returned to his home, had embarked in the cause of Internal Im provements. He invited the company to fill up their glasses, and drink with him to " Our distinguished Guest the Hon. Romulus-Mitchem. Saunders." Gen. Saunders Tose to respond, and was greeted with loud and prolonged applause. - He was deeply aJected, and it was with difficulty that he gave utter- race to his thanks for so cordial a 44 welcome Home.' Collecting himself, however, amid the continued ap- nlause of the company, he proceeded in a strain of eloquence directly from the heart, and spoke for more than half an hour, of his residence abroad of his feelings towards his country and his countrymen, of all parties, while absent of the effect of our institu tions upon the Old World and of his determination, formed indeed, before his return home, to devote his labors for the future to the cause of Internal Improve- "tfienls and to do all in his power to build up tneM "Craning fortunes and to promote the interests of his native State. He concluded with the following sen timent : Th Citizen of Raleiffh. the Camtal of the State- Hospitable, social, and intelligent. Brighter and more prosperous days await them, in a speedy and early con nection with our neighbors of the East and West. When the seventh Regular Toast was given, Gov. Manly rose and responded briefly and eloquently. He gave the following : The Union. It must be preserved, as it was formed, by the spirit of mutual concession and compromise. The eighth Regular Toast, to the immortal Kos scth, was hailed with the deepest enthusiasm. When the ninth Regular Toast, to Isabella of Spain, had been drunk, Gen. Saunders again rose and said, he had received too many tokens of Her Maj esty's kindness to suffer this toast to pass unres pond ed to. Though he might not to be able to speak of her in the terms in which History had presented her illustrious predecessor, Isabel the Catholic, still she possessed some high qualities for so youthful a sov ereign. She was fearless, charitable, and merciful. He then proceeded to state several occurrences in illustration of these traits of character, which were received with much applause, and concluded by of fering the following : Old Spain Though fallen from her once high estate, Bhe has been the firm, constant, and faithful ally of the tinted states. , When the eleventh Regular Toast was given, there were calls from all sides for Judgre Battle. That gentleman rose and responded in a handsony and appropriate manner, and concluded by offering the following sentiment : The People of North Carolina However they may ower upon other matters, they are always one in their IlklMi - A. 4.1 1 , - .... " . 1 u"iiusiuu la toe jaws anu in tneir love ior ine union. the twelfth Regular Toast was the occasion of Vinjinrr out Ex-Governors Morehead and Swain, Gen. Saunders, and Mr. Graves. Gov. Morehead said some capital things, as he always does on such occasions ; and we regret that the sentiment he gave m concluding his remarks has escaped us. It is also Qt of our power to recall all that was said by Messrs. Swain and Graves, and if we could, we should not I10 them the injustice to attempt to report them. It 19 sufficient to remark that they fully sustained the "Pu&tion they have long since acquired, of fluent, Refill, and accomplished public speakers. Gov. ain offered the following, which was drunk stand- ln2?nd in silence : J"hi Mexout of Wixiiax Gastoit. Mr. Graves was frequently called out during the Tening, by allusions to his casting vote " at the ast session. He gave the following sentiment; The State of North Carolina Respectful and unos- "uous in her demeanor, . pure and patriotic in her de mons may 8ne ere long maintain that influence in the of our political union to which her modesty and merits so justly entitle her. ' The thirteenth Regular Toast, to " dear Woman," w handsomely responded to, upon calls from all 'lieg of the house, by Seaton Gales, Esq. of the Re?ister. Mr. Gales gave the following : 1"he Ladies The best and most practical of all rne anies their productions being always domestic. In answer to a call for a sentiment, William W. Hlden offered the following : John D. Hawkins, of the County of FranklinThe ent and constant friend of Internal Improvements, a V-' worthy citizen, and an honest roan, w 'ir. Hawkins responded in appropriate terms, rhe Hon. John H. Bryan, 1st Vice President, 1 more than once in reply to toasts and to calls made upon him. He. enlivened every, one bv his wit and humor, and kept his . department," which was looking well to the 44 interior," in a constant state of merriment and good feeling. He- gave : The North Carolina Rail Road and its enlightened V dJ.tnoUc saPPorters May they say, with the immor al. MUton : We will not bate, one jot of heart or hope, but still bear up and steer right onward." The following Toasts were either offered upon the occasion, or subsequently furnished at the re quest of the Committee : ,2d Vice President. The VAmencan Union it " must be preserved.1 TPy J. a. U.

We have" never witnessed a more agreeable or pleasant Festival, or a warmer outpouring of genuine senti ment and persbnal friendship. The occasion, from first to last, was alike honorable to the community and to its distinguished Guest. We may observe here that the sentiments contain- ed in all the Regular Toasts were not suited to all present. The Dinner was intended as a personal compliment to Judge Saunders, and hence gentlemen of all shades of opinion were willing' to contribute to it. In connection with the Regular Toast about the Rail Road, we are sure, if our fellow-citizen James B. Shepard had been present when it was read, he could not have assented to it. Mr. Shepard was and is still opposed to the construction of Rail Roads, built either entirely or partially at the public expense and with the public money ; and most especially to the action oi me last legislature in regard to tne suojecy of Internal Improvement." . s. f f .1 1 .

Davidson College. William H. Foote, D. D., of Virginia, has been appointed to the Professorship of Moral and Mental Science, in Davidson College. Besides Dr. Foote, the following gentlemen were brought before the Convention for the appointment, to wit: Dr. Yeomans of Pennsylvania, Mr. Engles of South Carolina, and Dr. Colton of Fayetteville. Correspondence of the Baltimore Sun. Washington, December 13. In truth I am pursuaded that the exhibition of feel ing on the part of the Southern and Northern mem bers to-day, will lead to good results. Harmony may grow out of this discord. The North must learn to respect the feelings, and, if you please, prejudices of the South, as well as their constitutional rights. I was pleased to hear Mr. Meade declare that the South ern members would not sit here to be abused as they have been formerly. The Northern demagogues must find some other theatre than this for their dec lamations against slavery and slaveholders. If ever the House should get a Speaker, I shall ex pect to see more of mutual forbearance than has been exhibited in it past years. Any trespass on the rights or feelings of the South will be avoided. , . As to the Wilmot Proviso, it cannot become a practical question. I can assure you that California will not be admitted as a State at this session, neither will slavery be abolished in the District of Columbia ; nor will the inter-state slave trade be abolished. The cause of dissolution will not arise. It is rumored that Mr. Meade has challenged Mr. Duer, on account of what passed to-day. ,You will have in vour report the noticeof the affair.

CONGRESS-NO SPEAKER YET ! Up to Monday . evening, last no Speakerof the House had been elected. -Two weeks have thus been exhausted in unavailing, efforts to organize. We refer our readers to our second page for tlie proceed ings of the1. House from Monday to Friday evening, inclusive. :v . '.' '. : - .On Saturday last, after some debate in the Senate, hi which Mr. Clay , took a prominent part, that" body appointed a Committee to wait upon the President and inform him that they were organized, and ready to proceed- to the consideration of such Executive business aa he might lay before them. ' -. . On the same day the House voted the 45th,46th, and 47th times for Speaker Mr. Boyd of Kentucky, and Mr. Stanly of this State, running considerably ahead. On the last ballot Mr. Boyd received 86 votes, and Mr. Stanly 66. The remainder of the votes were scattered in various directions. We stated last week that Mr. Stanly was playing a deep game for the Speakership, and the result thus far shows we were not mistaken. - But how can that gentleman hope to be elected If Mr. William Brown, a member from a free State, could not obtain the votes of the Freesoilers without 'making them, in writing,' a most discreditable pledge, what assurances can Mr. Stanly have that he can succeed We take it for granted that no Democrat will sustairi-him; and without these Freesoil votes, as his party is in a mi nority, how can he reach the Speakership ? It may be, however, that he is permitting his name to be run for the mere honor of the thing, and with no hope of success. , But how does it happenby the way, that his own colleague, Mr. Clingman, and those ardent champions of Southern rights, ; Messrs. Stephens; Toombs, and Hilliard, members of his own party from slaveholding States, refuse to vote for him ! Do they also doubt his soundness upon the Slavery ques tion! It would seem so. If Mr. Stanly should ob tain the Speakership by the aid of the Freesoil vote, he will rue it to his life's end. . If he is looking to that vote, he is courting his own destruction ; if he should get it, utter political ruin will befall him. No "letter" may be produced, should such an event oc-. cur; but his constituents, knowing that men can talk as well as write, would think for themselves and form their own conclusions. Our readers will perceive, from the proceedings of Wednesday last, the unfortunate predicament in which Mr. William J. Brown has involved himself Mr. Brown's position and opinions on the Slavery question were satisfactory to the South, and the hope was entertained, at one time, that he would be elect ed Speaker ; but the disclosures of Wednesday last, while they fell with startling' effect cpon the House, at the same time revealed to our friends the happy escape they had made for themselves and their coun try. We regard Mr. Brown's conduct as totally in excusable. No explanation can Telieve it no ex pressions of regret can banish the remembrance of it from the public mind. He has deceived his own friends, who were seeking to do him honor; and, if elected, his conduct might have seriously injured them and their glorious cause. That was his fault; if deceived again, the fault will be theirs. As it is, no blame can rest on the Democratic party. In this connection, we refer our readers to the remarks of Mr. Toombs, who speaks in high terms of the prompt and honorable manner in which the Democrats aban doned and denounced Mr. Brown, when they dis covered thathe had bargained with Wilmot, Giddings, and other Freesoilers for their votes. Every true-hearted Southern man will be lifted up in perusing the impassioned remarks of Messrs. Toombs, Meade, and Stephens, delivered in the House on Thursday last on the Slavery question. These gentlemen have planted themselves on high ground ; and we are gratified to find that Mr. Cling man, though he voted for Mr. Winthrop, approves their sentiments and is prepared to stand with them, come what may. We cannot say that we hope in our next issue to announce the organization of the House, and to pub- lish the President's Message, because confusion is "the order of the day at Washington, and no one can itredict when a Sneaker will be chosen. It may have oeen done already ; it may be taking place now ; or the J House may remain unorganized for days to come. I For the North Carolina Standard. BISHOP IVES, " DISSENTERS," &c. Mr. Editor : Among the important developments of this prouressive age, I have-observed with some curiosity tho learned controversy now being waged between the Hon. " Dishop': Badger, j. u. u. o Wake Countv. and the Right Rev. Bishop,, Ives D. D. of North Carolina. But as this is entirely a family quarrel, of their own trettinor un. these distinguished gentlemen and their respective friends may think it not only officious bu impertinent for "outsiders" to Interfere in their do mestic broils. I think so too, therefore care not how eloquently or sarcastically they discuss the point what the English prayer-book, the American prayer- book, Rome, Hooker, St. Agustine, Ravehscroft, or any body else teaches, respecting 44 Priestly confession and ahRolution" we. the neoDle. ( ignorant though we bel have the Bible, the revealed word of God, and are con tent, in obedience to His commands, to confess-our sins and seek forgiveness from Him, and Hinr'alone. But in reading Bishop Iv's " Pastoral Letter" we have been struck, in speaking of his " branch of the Catholic Church" that he also talks about "unautho rized "teaching," " dissenters," &c. .Will you therefore allow the enquiry of yourself, or any one possessing the desired information, what the Bishop means bv " unauthorized teachings" 1 and who are " dissenters " ? Now every school boy knows that in England, where the State supports a Church, by enactine- laws, exacting tithes from the rich and poor, and conferrinsr livings on ministers of a particular upct. that those who differ in religious faith from this State establishment, are sometimes called Dis senters; but we have not yet seen it officially or otherwise announced that there is any alliance between Church and State in North Carolina, or that Coritrress has thrown the protecting arm of the law amnn anv nnrticular Church, makinsr its "teach ings" the authorized established religion of the na inn thprp.hcausinop anv to dissent from it. Who then, we would again ask, are these "dissenters" the Bishop refers to in this land of civil and religious freedom 1 and from whom and what do they dissent? Or, can it be, that this term is employed in the com mon parlance, as well as the authorized teachings of a certain class, in order to larnuiarize ino minus ui we people prepare them it may be, for some future po-Fitif-al schemes and developments, uniting the Church and State, and establishing amongst us here an eccle siastical tyranny and despotism, sucn as once causea our sires to quit their fatherland, we want more liffht we ask for information on this subject.

' . RaLeish, Dec 15th, 1849. RAIL ROAD CONVENTION. Agreeably, to announcement, a numerous and high ly respectable convention of the Citizens of Raleigh and County of Wake, took place at the Court House (to day.) - The meeting was organized .by the ap pointment of the Hon. Jno. H. Bryan, Chairman, and B. B. Smith, Secretary. General Saunders, on behalf ot the Delegation from the County of Wake, to the Greensborough Convention, made a highly, satisfac tory, report of the proceedings of said ' Convention ; and then entertained the meeting for the space of two hours, in a speech replete with sound argument, and thrilling eloquence in favor of .the great Central Rail Road scheme, the successful completion of which the General most conclusively demonstrated to the satisfaction of all present, was identified with the best interest the glory and honor of the State. . . The Hon. Calvin Graves and Ex-Governor More head, were each called out and . likewise made, in turn, many judicious and striking observations, all tending to show the importance of the great work in hand; , . This was truly an eventful day. A most powerful effect, upon the minds of many, hitherto incredulous, was made by a simple statement of facts and figures ; and, as the result of this day's effort, Wake County and the City of Raleigh together, add between thirty and forty thousand dollars more to .their former sub scription. Messrs. W.White, Lemay, Jas.T. Mariott and B. B. Smith, were appointed a committee to re ceive any additional subscriptions that may be made, and report the same to the State Commissioners. On motion the meeting adjourned. JNO. H. BRYAN, Ch'mn. B. B. Smith, Seemly. ' Sa.d News from the Armv. We learn thatintel ligence has been received at the War Department of the death of two young officers lately attached to the Fourth Military Department of the army. On the 2Gthof September last, Brevet Captain W..H War ner, of the Topographical Engineers, was murdered by the Indians, on the Upper Sacramento, in Califor nia; and on the 16th October, Brevet Capt. Herman Thorn, of the second infantry, while in command of the escort with the collector for the district of Mon terey, was drowned whilst crossing the Colorado riv er, near the mouth of the Gila. , The Indians who made the attack upon Capt. Warner consisted, of a party of twenty-five ; and they shothim down whilst he was leading a command, eight arrows having en tered his body, and one passing entirely through it. The loss of these meritorious officers will be severely felt, not only in their own corps, but in the whole Service, and particularly that portion ot it now serving on the Pacific. . JVct, . Intelligencer. The Crops in Florida. The Tallahassee Flori dian, of the 17th ult., speaks in glowing terms of the crops of Florida. It says that the cotton crop will be fully "an average one, while the tobacco crop will be a mine of wealth, to the planters who raise it. Nor is this all, says the Floridian. As we have al ready shown in a former number, the experiments in turpentine, enough most abundantly to test the matter, satisfy the expectations and calculations of the most sanguine in regard to the profits which may certainly be secured from this department of business. Indu ced by the prospects thus held out, citizens of North Carolina are already on the road to reap this harvest of wealth. . THE MARKETS. Petersburg, December 13, 1849. Tobacco.

The great popularity of Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry has induced some mercenary individuals in various parts of the country to compound quack nos trums for the purpose of deceiving the public and raising money on the well-earned reputation of this truly valua ble medicine. The interests of the proprietor cannot suffer, if he can but keep the public iufbrmed against the false preparations attempted to be palmed oil in the name of the Wild Cherry ; for certain it i3 . that no medicine eyer proved so efficacious in a long catalogue of the most common diseases which " human flesh is heir to, or pre served tho health and life of.so many thousands of our race as has Dr. Wistar's Balsam.

THIS property, now owned and worked by the Belvi dere Manufacturing Company, has been repaired and greatly improved in its machinery. At considerable expense, a supply of pure spring water has been secured, which enables the company to furnish at all times, on the shortest notice, GOOD WHITE PRINTING PAPER, of the best materials and workmanship. Tfiey are also prepared to execute orders for almost any other description of paper. ''' At the paper and rag store of the Companv, (next door to Messrs. John Thompson & Co., and two doors below Messrs. Webb, Bacon & Co., Main 6t.,) will be found a large and full assortment of WRITING AND WRAPPING PAPER, embracing cotton yarns and envelope, at prices suited to the times, to which they invite attention. From the ad vantages of climate, facility of transportation, &c, which the Company possesses, they Matter themselves that they can compete successfully with the Northern manufacto ries. Expending, as they do, some fifteen thousand dol lars annually for materials, the product of Virginia and North Carolina, and affording employment to about fifty persons, whose earnings are expended here, constitutes, as they think, some claim on the custom of the Southern public. Orders should by addressed to Mr. John Richards, Superintendant. ISPRags purchased at the Mill and at the Store. December 19, 1848. 789 6t MAIiE ACADEMY", WARRESTOJI, N. C. It. A. EZEL.L, Jl. .11.

The present principal was called to the charge of this Institution ten years ago, since which period its patronage has continued uniformly to increase. To his numerous Patrons throughout the Country, he returns his sincere acknowledgments, and he hopes by untiring zeal and fidel ity in the discharge of his highly responsible duties, to merit the continued support ot a liberal and enlightened public.

ENDORSED by the first professional talent in the United States ; its efficacy attested by thousands of well-known citizens ; sold at a price which places it within the reach of every family : recommended by journals of the highest standing in the country ; equally applicable to two specific and widely different purposes and everywhere in demand, Barrt s 1 hicophekous may be fearlessly pronounced, on the most incontestable evidence, the best, the cheapest, the most popular preparation for restoring and beautifying the hair, eradicating scurf and dandruff, and curing all diseases of the skin, the muscles and glands, which has ever been offered to the public, either in the Old World or New. It stands alone " It has no brother, and is like no brother." A volume of authentic testimony and analytical proof of its value accompanies every bottle. To gainsay the record is impossible ; for evey purchaser adds one more to the legion of witnesses arrayed in its behalf. : Its wonderful effects in renewing, glossing, beautifying and cleansing the hair, are all produced through its pri mary influence upon the skin of the head. The invigora ting fluid enables the scalp to perform its functions properly. The scurf and dandruff, whrch a sluggish circulation has al lowed to accumulate, arc thrown off, the vegetative prin ciple finds its way to the vesicles in which the hair is rooted, and they are supplied, as it were, with the elixir vita, which strengthens, moistens, glosses, and beautifies every fibre, until "each particular hair" becomes a heal thy and elastic filament. The same fertilizing principle which causes the existing hair to grow, stimulates the latent roots, and thus the fibres wliich have fallen out are soon replaced by new ones. Remember that this double antidote this specific for diseases of the skin, and matchless beautifier of the hair is sold from fifty to one hundred per cent cheaper than any other preparation for the hair out.
