THE NEW MILLINERY. Betsey and the babies” have had a look at the new and beautiful goods and fashions, which Mrs. Mercerean has brought on for the gratifica tion of the ladies, and say its a shame that I don’t say something about the Polka Bonnets, Feathers, Laces, &c., which she will display to-morrow morning. It is in vain that we tell Betsey that we know nothing about such things; she says we know well enough, and can write that as well as any thing else, and wishes she was an editor, she would show what could be done. The place is getting rather too warm, (you know what I mean,) so I’ll clear out to Richmond and leave you, Capiain, to call the attention of our beauti ful ladies to the new fashions, &.c., alluded to above. Good bye. AIM—READY—FIRE.' Now that game, of all kinds, is fat and plenty, we would direct the sportman’s attention to the shop of our friend Spai.ding, next door to the Old Dominion Office, who has just returned from the North with a large assortment of Double and Single shut Guns and Rifles, that will make the eyes of a lover of field sports dance with de light to examine, which he is daily disposing of at prices which in former days would have ap peared to us as nothing. He is the chap, too, to do the repairing of your implements of sport, and make the old gun not only look as well, hut be as good as new. .Just give him a call. OUR COUNTY COURT SYSTEM. Some lime last spring we commenced the pub lication of a series of Essays on some of the evils which are inflicted upon us by our anti republican Constitution, among which was an examination of the “ County Court System,” by the pen of a clear hpaded legal gentleman. The Essays on that particular subject were three in number, and as they are short, we have thought that we could not do a greater service to oor readers than to in troduce them into the columns of the New Era especially as the time is rapidly approaching when the su^ect of authorizing a Convention will be 1 pressed upon the Legislature. We accordingly ! commence their republicatton to day. «' SMITH'S WEEKLY VOLUME FOR TOWN AND COUNTRY.” We have barely time to acknowledge the re ceipt, through Messrs. Hodges &. Co.,»of the]first Quarterly Part of this inestimable work. We will not even at this lime pretend to offer a criti que on the work, but shall lake an early opportu nity to make a lengthened notice of it. It is beautifully printed, on excellent paper, at §4 per annum. HON. FRANKLIN PIERCE. For several years a Represen live in Congress, and also a Senator from New Hampshire, has de clined the appointment, tendered him by Gov. Steele, to fill the vacancy in the United States Senate, occasioned by the resignation of the Hon. Levi Woodbury. VIRGINIA SENATOR. We copy the following communication from the i Richmond Enquirer of the 14lh instant. The ad- 1 vice given by “ Fair Play” would seem to imply that there is such a thing as foul piny, which, for i the honor of Virginia, wo hope is not the case. We hope that tho corrupt system of New York tactics is not to be practised upon us. Leave that to the hot bed of the Albany Regency. The ex posure made by Makenzie, no matter how dishon orable to him, docs not take from the disgrace of the party exposed, and we trust that no Virginian will commit himself to any cause or any man that will cheat the people, who in the honesty 0f their : hearts raised their voices at the polls, at the No- i vember election, and tho elections of last sprint. If they do, terrible will be the retribution which * will be visited upon them by the people jn their wrath. All we ask is fair piny, )et come what will come, and we will abide tho event—But we will submit to no jugglery. Numbers must and shall rule—the wire-workers shall come from be hind the curtain. from the fanquircr. OUR NEXT SENATOR. To the 1fembert r>f the Legitlnture : “ KESriCE riNEM.” Scarce sixty days will have passed over, before you will be called on to discharge one of the most delicate and important duties which has come be fore you for many years. Important, because of the many, great, and, I may add, vital questions which will he agitated next Winter. foelieate’ i because of the great number of distinguished Re- I publicans who have Seen brought to y.)Ur notice by their respective friends—men who have been engaged in many a hard fought battle, and have done “ the State some service.” That you may worthily discharge this duty, and meet the ex pectations of your peers, is the sincere desire of the humble individual who traces these hasty lines—one who has been identified with the De mocratic party for the last thirty years—in its ad versity and in its halcyon days—in the •• ,nonn tain storm ’ and •' the gale of Spring.” He deems no apology necessary for thus addressing yon, and saying a few words, he hopes, in ten ton. It is useless to disguise the fact, that mod. so licitude is felt, and great excitement .is prevail 1 mg, respecting the election of Senator. It is not the intention of the writer of this to add another name to the list of nominees—nor is it his design to say any thing to increase the feverish excite ment alluded to. But he presumes to appeal to you to survey the whole ground—to frown indig nantly upon any effort at “ log rolling,” (should any attempt of the kind unfortunately be made.) No time-serving, temporising, or doubtful politi cian, it is hoped, will find favor in your eyes.— No drones nor camp-followers should expect any thing at your hands. No politician, who would play second to any other politician, should for one moment be tolerated. Let the past he a bea con for the future—let not our just expectations he at'ain disappointed. A Virginia Senator slmnd be like (Dakar’s wife. It is hoped, for the honor of \ irginia, the Democratic party, and the distinguished gentlemen who have been named for the exalted station, that a fair, open and man ly course will he pursued by the friends of each_! that no early committal will take place. We cannot foresee what two short months may bring forth. In the mean lime, “ stand by your guns.” Should any attempt he made to “ cross the lines,” let the tocsin at once he sounded. Woe he to I that man, who shall so far forget himself as to en I ter into any bargain, intrigue, nr understanding, , to promote his personal views!—better that such ; a man had never been born. I make no charges ; —have none to make—least of all, against my : brother Democrats—yet the history of a Rives, i and an Archer, and others, should admonish us to he careful and wary. We lime had some poli tical “Judases”—never give us another, say 1. Let us have, indeed, and in truth, “ FAIR PLAY.” From the Chronicle of March 26th. OUR COUNTY COURT SYSTEM. NO. I. Mr, Dditor :—Allow me, through the columns of your paper, to consider briefly the operation, in practice, of the power vested in these tribunals. Let ns spe if this system carries out the doctrine contained in the 2d section of the Bill of Rights “ unanimously adopted by the Representatives of the good people of Virginia, assembled in full and free Convention, June 12, 1776,” in these words: "All power is vested in, mid consequently de rived from Hie People ; Magistrates are their trusters, and servants, and at all limes amena ble to them." What more glorious truth than this could have been declared! It breathes the genuine spirit of Freedom. It strikes at once at the very foundation, and overturns the whole su perstructure of domination " jure divino,” under the exercise of which pretended right, the degra ded serfs of Europe have been fur centuries ground to the dust, and the hard earnings of the poor have been wrested from them to fill the coffers of the rich and powerful. But how does the organiza tion of our County Courts accord with and carry out the doctrine “ that all power is derived from the people!” The Magistrates in this glorious old Commonwealth, the Mother of Presidents, Statesmen, and Heroes, derive their powers, not from the people., but from each other. It is the board of Magistrates, themselves, who nominate others to be commissioned by the Governor and Council. With all this what have the people to do? Literally nothing. They are not like the Judges of our Superior Courts chosen by those who are directly responsible to the people for the manner in which they discharge their high trusts. Trim, the Law provides that they maybe punish ed by information or indictment, and their com missions vacated by a Circuit Superior Court of Law and Chancery. But tins can only be done upon a verdict of a jury charging a corrupt ami wilful or tyrannical exerciae of power. A chargp hard to he made out and not likely to he so de cided, unless in a case of the most flagrant and outrageous injustice. Besides, those who are most in danger of oppression from decisions contrary to law are those least able to undertake such a pro ceeding for rpdress. We ask, then, ought not the law on this sub ject, at least, tube so far changed as to permit the people to choose their own Magistrates? And should not the right of appeal from their decisions be also extended, and freely allowed ? Let it be borne in mind that the weak need, and are entitled In protection, as well as the strong. That the debtor for a small sum is as much, and more in i danger of suffering injustice from illegal decisions, than he who is sued for thousands. As showing the danger of abuse in the exercise of the powers confided to these tribunals, let ns suppose the nomination of Magistrates going for ward in the Court, were we to hear a member of that Court, (one, by the way, who is so mindful of the interests of sonic in the community as to be constantly on hand for the decision of warrant \ cases,) I repeat, were we to hear such a one ex claim in greaUexcitement, “ No, it will never do to appoint more Democratic than Whig Magis trates!!” What most he onr impression as to ; his notions of Justice and Law in a community of! equal freemen, when his opinion of the fitness of a fellow citizen for a high judicial trust depends upon the question lo rchat political parly docs he belong ? Suppose again we were to aco the Court pro- j ceeding at another time to make nominations for j the same office, and uniformly to reject every Democratic nominee and confirm every Whig • and that too in a community wiih half a score of Whig, and not one Democratic Magistrate. Must we not in charity conclude that they are conscien tious in the opinion of Rome of their political brethren, that they have upon their Ride “ all the learning, all the talent, all the respectability, all the wealth, and all the religion,” and that, there fore, it is in vain to seek for a fit candidate for the office of Magistrate in the ranks of their politi cal opponents * God forbid that the people of the old Commonwealth should longer submit to such a system of irresponsible despotism! hoi this anti-Republican feature no longer disgrace, our Statute Hooks! Let this licensed Star Chamber of Virginia be abolished! Lpt us swear in the name of humanity, in the name of American Free dom and Equality, and in our own sovereign name it must, it shall be done. Yours, &c. ONE OF TIIE PEOPLE. THE METHODISTS IN THE SOUTHERN STATES. I'lie differences existing in the Methodist Church on the subject of Slavery, il is clearly known, has caused a separation in that body, and it appears has left a bitterness between the two sections which the religion which they profess does not counteract. This feeling has also ex tended itself to the community by which they are surrounded in some places, and the tarring and feathering of preachers has been threatened. The Illinois Conference, amongst others, has embroil ed itself on this subjpet, and has resolved to send preachers into slave States, whence there are in structions made that they will be ejected if they should come. From an article on this subject in the Louisville Journal, we make the following extract, which will communicate some informa tion respecting this quarrel: The editor of the Frankfurt Cnmmnmcealth. an able and prominent Methodist, recently gave, through his paper, a most unequivocal warning to the “ Church North.” that, if tint church should send its ministers into tlip slave States and they should insist on punching among ns. il would be at their personal peril, as the people would take redress into their own hands. That this warning was not a mere empty threat is very | evident trom the late proceedings at Parkersburg, Virginia. I lie.Rev. A. Brown and the Rev. John Dillon, Ohio Methodists, were sent by tire Ohio conference to Parkersburg to preaelr the gospel, the bounds of tire Ohio conference includ ing Parkersburg. But the people of the latter place were resolved that no prpaohers front the precincts of the “ Church North” should preach the gospel among them. A public meeting of the citizens, comprising nearly all the Methodists of the place, was hp|d, and the following resolutions were unanimously adopted and published. Ilesolvcd, I hat wt* are nut hound by any law, moral or conventional, to submit to thpse things: hot fcp| that we are imperatively railed on hy a high sense of doty, and after doe deliberation on the notorious faels ol the ease, to remove these men from amongst us, and beyond the limits of the Commonwealth. Resolved, That a committee of three he ap pointed by the chair, whose duty it shall he to notify Rev. A. Brown and Rev. John Dillon, that in the deliberate judgment of this meeting, their lorther continuance Imre is incompatible with tlm safety, ppare, and order of this community, and that this meeting advise them forthwith to leave the State. The meeting then adjourned till three o’clock to await the report of this committee._ And at three o’clock Mr. (ieorgo Neale, Jr., from the committee of three, reported that they had waited on Mr. Dillon, and that he requested time to deliberate on his reply. Whereupon it was unanimously Resolved, That lie ho allowpd until Saturday morning next to make his arrangements to leave the State, and that a committee of forty he ap pointed whose duty it shall be to see that Rev. Mr. Dillon withdraws from the State hy that period; and, in case of his failure, intake such measures as shall cause him to do so. J. H. NEAL. Chairman. M. J. LtTTf.RBoy, Jit , Secretary. .Monday, September 22. Mr. B rown ami Mr. Dillon promptly Ipft Par kersburg in pursuance of this notice, deeming such a step necessary to their own bodily safety.” We depply regret such a condition of things, without assuming the right to decide where the blame justly lies. We believe that the Methodist church has accomplished a vast amount of good everywhere, and we fee] the sincerest regret that the conduct of one portion of it, or the conduct of the other portion of it, or the conduct of both por tions combined, has brought about such a state of things that the preachers of one section of the Union cannot extend their labors through all thp other sections, without danger of being lynched hy their gospel brethren. From the Philadelphia Ledger, PRESENTS TO PRESIDENTIAL C AN DIDATES. If the partisan presses of onr country were con ducted by men of more elevated views, they would not so servilely land and puff the misera bly servile practice of making presents to leading politicians, especially candidates for the Presiden cy. And we will add that if such politicians had as much self-respect, and as much regard for an elevated tone of thinking and feeling among their countrymen, as they ought to have, they ’'would not give, the least encouragement to this servile practice. Scarcely a week passes without bring ing us, in some partisan newspaper, an account of a new hat for Mr. Clay, a pair of silk stockings for Mr. Van Boren, a pair of pantaloons for Gov. Marey, a magnificent overseer’s whip for Mr. Calhoun, a splendid tobacco box for Mr Benton, a pair of superb double spectacles lor Gen. Cass, a richly ornamented hank note wallet for Mr. Web ster, a dozen of elegantly ruffled shirts for Mr. Buchanan, a richly bound treatise on the Third Commandment for .lodge Bibb. And for what purpose is all this miserable stuff ? The manufacturer wishes to puff his wares, and therefore presents a specimen to a “ great man” by way of advertisement. Of course the “ great man,” if a gentleman, will return a letter of ac knowledgment, prai-ing'the specimen in the high est terms of diplomatic compliment. And even if the praise should he sparing, it will “ tell well” from such a source, and therefore he a good thing to publish; fur according to Gil Bias, “a ureal roan must receive you very ill indeed, to make you displeased with him.” But this is not all. Before the article is sent to the donee, it is exhib ited in a shop window and praised in the news papers; the name and number of the “enterpris ing manufacturer” being duly, that is, conspicu ously, mentioned. And when the letter of thanks 1 comes hack, it is published with all due parade, with the intimation that, the enterprising and in genious manufacturer “ has a few more of the same sort.’ \V ho can fail to sec in all this, the advertising puff, and the conversion of tne “great ! man’s” name into a huh to the advertising kite, as the hoys would say? The last specimen of this sordid servility is a ' pair of boots for Mr. Clay. VVe shall not men-< lion the maker’s name, unless he pay9 for the i advertisement; nor shall we then mention it tn the i editorial columns, according to the fashion of some partisan presses in New York : and if they are designed for the next Presidential race, we hope that they will nrovepqual tnthe famous sev- j en-leagued boots, whether he heats his competitors or not. This low practice sometimes produces queer re--i suits, and places the “enterprisingand ingenious” ! adventurers in rather ridiculous positions. Thus! at the last election, a coach maker made a superb inauguration coach for Mr. Clay, and sent it all tho way to Kentucky, when the donee had no use for it. Ami some years ago. when Mr. Clay was in Boston, a manufacturer of straw bonnets, wishing to advertise his wares, made a superb one for Mrs. Clay, which was gazetted in the richest language of Bostonian exaggeration. And wishing to kill two birds with one stone, the man ufacturer inserted in his letter of presentation, a puff «f the shaping by the pretty milliner who <tid that part of the business, and who was con cerned with him in the sale of his bonnets. *• It is but justice to add.” wrote he, “ that the bon net was shaped by Miss B-.” This was too much for Mr. Clay. Ho went through the let ter with commendable gravity to that part. But then dignity broke down, and he roared outright; and with sly sarcasm that was truly exquisite, he put at the tail of his letter of thanks, “ Justice requires me to add that the bonnet is very prettily shaped by Miss B-.” We thoroughly des pise all this stuff, as a low imitation of foreign servility. An Knglishman may be proud of being cobbler to the Prince of Wales, leather breeches mender to the Duke of York, skate maker to Prince Albert, diaper weaver to the Queen, and garter maker to the Queen Dowager. But an American manufacturer or mechanic ought to bo ashamed of such traps to catch customers, and American statesmen ought to bo ashamed of giving any encouragement to such servile prac tices. [We like the above aitcle well, and we have no doubt it will please the generality of our read ers. Mr. Polk, did the business about right when honest Tom Lloyd, Naval Officer of Baltimore, through his spokesman Maguire, presented the President with a beautiful gelding. He listened throughout to the eloquent speech of the orator, then kindly thanking the donor, ordered the horse returned, and in a short time thereafter relieved honest Tom from the hurden of office.—A'ew Era.] From the Union.

WH AT’S eOM I NG N EXT. “ The popular elections within tho last twelve months have resulted so strangely, that we think it worthy of the serious consideration of the I Whigs, and especially of Whig Congressmen, whether it is not their doty to aid in a change of the Tariff, in many important particulars.” The foregoing singularly significant sentence we find in the opening paragraph of an article in the last Fayetteville Observer. What’s coming next? Who would have believed that this sen tence would ever have been found in the columns of such a thorough-paced protective tariff paper as the Observer? Indeed, we have read it over and over again, and rubbed our eyes to see if we were not dreaming, before we could believe the evidence of onr own senses. And is it possible that we have an ultra whig tariff paper urging upon the considetation of “ Whig Congressmen, whether 1 it is not their duty to aid in a change of the Tariff, i in many important particulars.” A Tariff that ! has been extolled by the Federal party, from Maine to Louisiana, as the very saviour of our country ; and now we have one of the leading or gans of that party in North Carolina, calling the attention of the “ Whig Congressmen ’’ to see if it he not their duty to change it in many impor tant (!) particulars. Is it possible that this can he the same Observer which advocated the pro tective pedicy with such devotional fervor during the Presidential contest? What can he in the wind? That the Tariff will he changed, and iliat radically, at the next session of Congress, we have not a shadow of doubt ; but that “ Whig Congressmen” should he called upon to assist in the operation, we must confess we could not pos sibly dream of. Well, it’s a wonderful world, and we wouldn’t be note much surprised, if the Observer came out full blast against the “ Act of ’42,” whig darling as it is.— Wilmington, (JV. C.) Journal. MEXICO.
