With all deference j t- cur 1 rethren in various portions of the State, we think they may well limit them selves to the Wilmington platform, as we i ftrA .rr-nt it. The al ministration of Ml Davis ha mor ! than once 1 ecn rndrst-d uuardrr.oualy by the"! legislature nf this S'ata and it is nt now j on tfia' rar:d theie is no mcesitv to bring it into the. struggle.

His friends may well wait upon these events, in tne meanume mo main nusint-s. is to secure the trium ph of loyalty in the State; t.'-t so much the defeat of Mr. Holden "r that is an event sure beyond peradven- ure but the seeming of a true legislature, r.4)d the establishment of a right Confederate feeling in N'rtii Carolii;a. We would exhort, therefore, all loyal men, in their meetings to nominate Gov. Vanee, and to Feiect candidate fur ll;e legislature, to unite on general prin-ciples of fidelity to tlie country, where all may stand shoulder to should? r, without pricking each othf r with I j.olitival party differences. To this et.'l the lcsoluJons. we have selected nre admirably adapted, and we respectfully urge them as the Conf derate Platform in North Carolina Sensation Uuntors. We are surprised to see in the Charleston (Jourier, copied from the Atlanta Confederacy, lV4l4wiug . U vUh what ,USr oi muu .nt- uuiauiiciu, u " v (j.lw.-i it'ior-niffhly subjected to military rule. . . We hear of the suppression o, a newspaper ja t!rit State, and that theie are now confined , , . . .,. , iloro jnrno fnnr hundred Civilians. And this has been used to alarm " 44 members ol j the Georgia Legislature. " and to give j .stifiua j tion to Gov. Browu'a extraordinary message. There ii? not a word of truth in the statement . So far from military rule prevailing here, it h- the only State in the Confederacy where j the tilt of a single judge has interfered to prevent the enrolment of the principal- of substitutes the War department hiv;ng here consented to allow Judg; Pearson's d-ci- ston to rem .iu uncontested till the .Su- ; preme Court can assemble and Mistain or re j verse it. (Tub as we hear.) 1 here has been no suppression tf any newspaper in this State. Mr. llohhn, the editor of the Stan dard, became a candidate for Governor. Ju.-t before this, he suspended his paper, and Uhe Progress, whh his sanction., we piesume, t rji.i.o:i to h-v that his 44 office had l l ?r, ilnt i 1 nr.l f Itcii nunu Oil and his ii I e ttiieaU-i.e.1, ana n - ts.e suspension ol "his paper he acted upon the v A., not ' iieve there has been the slightest danger to .,,,.. , ffi ,p CvCett as he i.v.v...

Indeed, Mr. Ilolden and his fr-.ends have done mere than all others to invoke -mobs, as can be shown from his journal. Nor has there been a single civilian in North Car dina arrested, that we are aware of, for any ot the criminal offences set forth in the act, ex cept for attempts 44 to avoid service; " and,, as we have said, the habeas corpushns been applied in some of those -cases, aud the question now. is .ending. If ever there was a time when the suspen sion of the habeas corpus could become neces sary in Sorth Carolina, it was when Con gress enacted Us suspension. An agitation of the most dangerous character pervaded the State; the published articles of the two . papers in Kah-'igh were re-published from , week to week in the Yankee press at New- j born, in order to show the readiness of the j Stale to succumb to the Federal rule ; the men who deserfld from the North Carolina troops, when undergoing sentence" of death attributed their qiJ to the Standard ; its edi- j tor had openly avowed his readiness, through j a convention, by means of North Carolina j commissioners, to treat with the Federal gOv- j ernment an I make peace by disrupting the j Confederacy, through the surrender of a part J of Vircmia, and all of Kentucky and Mis- j orri V-en who, by accidental circumstan- j eft, nad acquired a ? rt of prominence, had. declared for this convention, wim a view iu set at naught the Confederate government, and "y.ke the affairs of the State uo its own hands - and a wide-spread and most in- Jurious discontent prevailed. Oilicers f the S:ite gorornmeut, military and civiC, favored this seditious movement, 'acd some of them went s- far as to declare 'that the object was to s-'ced-.i from the Cnfedera"y, and that they Jafored it. More can be proved ou some men in North Carolina than t'oy are aware of; but no one has desired to see the past brought m judgment upon them. All true men are content, if the agitation cease.. Mr Holden is now a candidat'against Gov. Yaacc, and ho has been treated with more cot'sidnrati jii than he was ever wont to treat candidates who differed from him. Having no inclimitioa to as.sail him personally, jmd being governed by r.ur own self-respect, vve have abstained from all allusions to him of a personal character, giving him crtdit, indeed, for qualities Jo whirl)., in candor, we thought him entitled. Mr". Holden has chosen him-s-lf i.ot to go out and 'canvass.' Ho sivs- he will m.t invite the people, out to "hnrangue thcrn for vetes." It is tine he has always heretofore rec mmended pop.ular canvasses. He invited tie people to the most excit ing public !!e tiags, last summer and again, but lately, this spring; a1 d ia the very same paper which contains his announcement, he i.rges count v n eetings for the nomination of part;-candidates for the Legisl . ur . Iiut all this is a question of coo-astency ; and this the people do not look for from Mr. Holden, seeing that he has. at one time or another, em--brier-d all shades of opinion botji as to men, parties arid principles. Mil Ho'den has lately bjen invite;! out to address the people, and ha- declined, as we learn, on grounds of per sonal safety. Now for ourselves, we do not iirtend to assdl Mr. Ilolden . p ronail'. We ag in !:. li'y accord to him many qualities vi ich have attracted our sj'nq)athy.. We bl others nvoe thaiuhim for his present pi-it on. We. wt-uld. countenance no violence toward' him or his and we think, if we were i.: 1 is place, we would fear none. He may with perfect safety accompany Gov. Vance to m eetings of th? people, unless, of course, he should choose to indulge in such obnoxious ilis--o-ir.se as would shock the public sense."' The' got d tilect of 'he susp! nsion of the hal-:J.as er;, us is vi.-io'e every where in North Carolina. Il has put men to " thinking ; and t 1 4--iv '-rt t rf'J C .

Tee instruction? from the War department with referr.fvi to the acti n-of the govern ment in the class of enses likely to fall under the suspension of the habeas corpus, givegeu erai satisfaction. Already the public are con vii.c-d that no danger exists to tlie rights, libe: tics or privileges of 'good' citizens.- We copy below the instructions, that all may-see how "careful the government is to avoid any thing which might seem to be arbitrary or opp;v?sive : 'There will be appointed by this depai tment, for each military division of the Confederacy, east of , the Mississippi liver, one or niur; competent per sons as commission'er?, to investigate the cases of persons who may be. arrested or detained by any luiiitary uuthority for any cause specified in the above recited act. Information of all such arresta will be" given to him by the department commander a soon as practicable after they are made, and he will proceeu to investigate the same. If, tipon examination, a reasonable and probable cause for detention does not appear, he will certify the fact to tin? General or ether officer in command, who will immediately discharge the prisoner from at rest. But if a reasonable and probable cause does appear, the commi-sinner wih forthwith trans mit to the department a copy of the evidence taken in the case, with bis. opinion thereon, for in sti uctions, and meanw bile the prisoner shall re main in custody."

Adj't and In-p'r GenT . Wilson alee tin; We were sorry to hear that the large meei ing, whrch assembled in. tliH towa of Wilson, at which wc learn :th?re Wure at .least, five bundled men, although .unanimous for Gov. Vance, was not able to agree on some minoi proceedings,, and adjourned witho it a nomi nation. We respectfully call thi attention of t e people to our .suggestions on this subject, v. the leading itrticle of tosday. It is gratifying to know thai, sen ree a voice in Wilson county supports Mr. Holden. It is reported about the streets that Surgeon General Warren has expressed the opinion tlftt three-fourtlvs of the people of Wilkes and Iredell were against Gov. Vance ; and this is beii.jr used as an evidence of the Governor's weakness. We were always-of the opinion that Gov. Vance would z.vin no political strength by making Snrgron General Warren his political companion, and If we had his political interests in ur keeping, we should insist on. a divorce from this association. As it is, however, not much weight is to be given to this opinion of the Snrg -u Gene ral's. It is reported to have been made to a gentlemen who was himself rumored ti be ah ut to take the field; nd although it was a queer , way of acting the political fiicnd, nevertl. less when it is looked at in the light of an (fT rt only to make one's self agreeable, much may be padoned to the navietc of a political novie?, who h is" not -yet learned the intricacies of the profession. By the way some of our Doc-tor's friends thought that when we s.poke of the travelling Ex's. " spreading disease and pestilence," that we meant to allude to the vaccine waller. No our. whole "article .was political and it was to bad politics to which fe ailwded. Official Bureau Doctois ought to keep out of political officer., and the Surgeon General should set the t sample. However, we hope the Legis. ia,i.ire Wiii dispense with a Bureau now. at all events, useless, and then every one will have :i free fot. A Damper to Mr; Holden. " The election in Orange has resulted in the success of Mr. Berry, for tl e Senate, and that of Mr. Leathers, for tho House of Commons. All of the candidates carr.e out for Gov. Vance Mr. Leathers" very bobl!y and deci dedly. Mr. Mangtun, who had been nomi nated at a meeting in Hillsboro', was the most lukewarm. We ham that Mr. Leathers i c'cctcd by about three hundred m -j irity. Of course Mr. Maugum rece'md a good many Vance votes. Take it altogether, the Vote in Orange shows almost an unit against Mr. Holden. Indeed Mr. Noldtn's candidacy is already merely nominal, and will con'inuc to grow more dwindling, until, in the language ofaGeorgia- paper, it will be soon frazzled out." . Snow. It commenced snowing here on yesterday morning about 10 o'clock, and con tinucd"the great -r portion of the day, with a" stiff wind from the north. Toe fleucy element at once froze the hearts of wood-haulers, and nothing less than $20 and 30 for a little load ol w.ood could melt them. God pity the poor and destitute, for it is certain - they have no hope for m.rcy fr m w iodh tuiers and provision dealers. Let those who have plenty, also remember the needy in this timQ. of severity and suffering. Mail Schedule. 0-vmg to a change made in the time of departure of the Norlherh mad, ou paper of yesterday did not get off iu the mail.

The mail train will reach Weldon at 4 SO p. m., ?nd leave W el don for Raleigh at 6 30 pm. The accommodation train leaves Raleigh at 7 p. in., and reaches Weldon at 4 0. Leaves Weldon at 5 a. mv, and reaches Raleigh at4 p. m. We have not seen the schedule for the Western trains, but presume they will be run in connection with the above schedule of the Raleigh and Gaston Railroad. ews. Our exchanges are ardry as bare bones, in the way of news, and the Telegraph brings us very little. Ina short time, howev er, we shall doubtless. have enougli stirring events to tell to satisfy the most inveterate newsmonger. Iu the absence of much'nevvs, in this paper will be fouud the proceedings of meetings in several North Carolina Regiments, and other communications, which, if correct barometers of. th "state of the weather in the army and at home, betoken terrible thuEdcr squalls in August next, antagonistic to Mr. Holden 's predilections for the Governor's chair.
