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.
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

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
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
