PROPOSAL for issuing THE NORTH CAKO -T LINA STANDARD, semi-weekly.—Thc un dersigned proposes to publish The North Caroli na Standard after the first of February, 1846, twice a week. Many democrats, in various quar ter* of the State, desire this, and it is believed it can be done, if exertions are made in its behalf among the democratic party generally. The im portance of such an issue is, it seems to thc undcr ®>tfned, too apparent to require arguments in its favor. A semi-weekly paper ought surely to be sustained by the dr-mocranc party'of the State, (a patty which casts 40,000 votes,) especially as the federalists have two Semi-weeklies, in addition to two papers to our one in the State. Think of this, democrats, and of the influence which such publi cations must inevitably exert upon thc public mind. The Weekly Standard will lie published as Heretofore, and, the undersigned flatters him«clf, be much more interesting and valuable than u'« at present. It will contain at least eight cot «mn» more qf reading matter than it does now. TERMS: The Semi-weekly Standard will he published at four Dollars, if paid withir. thc first three months, Of Five Dollars, if delayed beyond that period ; and’ ,h* weekly Standard at Three Dollars per annum Payable in advance. Both the Weekly and Semi-Weekly will be print 'd at the presem size, on fine paper and with new *ypc Subscriptions to both paper* arc most re spectfully and earnestly solicited ; and subscribers .c present paper, v.ho are willing to take the ?'mi-Weekly instead of thc Weekly, will please ’^orm the undersigned of the fact, by letter or otherwise, on or beterc the 8th of January, 1846 „ W.

TIIE CONSTITUTION.—a political, Liter ary, and Commercial Newspaper, published in the City of Baltimore. The Constitution, which was established and heretofore published by the subscribers in the City of Washington, will, on and after Monday, the 1st day of December next, be removed to and published in the City of Balti more. The Constitution is devoted to the support of th principles of that instrument from which it borrows the name, and opposes whatever is not sanctioned by it. It considers a National Bank—a Protective Tariff—Internal Improvements by ibe General Go vernment-Distribution of the proceeds of the sales of the Public Lands—Assumption of the debts of the States—Abrogation of the Executive Veto— as unconstitutional and inexpedient. On the great and vital question in ail Governments—Taxation— it will advocate as heretofore the imposition of du ties for revenue alone—opposing a tariff for pro tection as unjust, oppressive, anti unconstitutional. Wc hope to make the paper worthy of the con fidence and snpport of the Democratic party of Ma ryland and of the country. It shall be the faithful expositor of their principles, and the ever ready medium to ccnvcy their sentiments and wishes to the public. The Democratic cause is the cause of tr uth and justice. It courts the light. It shuns no investigation. And we are determined to sec whether a paper, conducted with a devotion to the principle*, rather than to the men, of our party—to further the great cause of human progress, rather than the mere advancement of particular individu als—will not commend itself to the confidence and favor of the people. It is known that, in our political principles, wo are entirely and thoroughly Democratic. Of this, we trust that wc have already afforded sufficient 'evidence; and that we have also given some ear nest of the temper and spirit with which wc sustain our principles and opinions. Believing that the present Administration will faithfully carry out the principles and the policy of the Democratic party, wc shall continue most cor dially and earnestly to support all its measures tending to this end. Its action in regard to Tex as, Oregon, the Tariff, and the Independent Treas ury, so far as they have treen developed, has been in accordance with ihe policy of the party that placed them in power; and wc have not a doubt, that all will be satisfied that every thing has been done that could be done, to insure successful results to these great measures. The daily paper will he published at the very low rate ol six dollars a year, payable in advance, or two rents a number; the weekly at two dollars a year, payable invariably in advance.
