THE CONFEDERATE .
WEDNESDAY, April 6, 1SGI. Cat 0." We are not in the habit of not.cln? the monvraous communications in other papers, nor do we mean now to establish a precedent; but'a writer in the Progress of the 2Sih . mst., over the signature f "Cato, " ha fulnUed no anticipation of on r own so fully. concnV-g the mode in which Mr. Holdn would endeavor to conduct the campaign for Governor, that we are entirely prepared for it. It has been a favorite idea with Mr. llolden, that he is a self mtrte man, and thereby a people's man, and in the language of his in an Cato, " the natural noMonent of "certain person who have more wealth than brains," .who " cannot bear the i lea of seeing one who was once a poor-printer hoy, made Governor of North Carolina." We shall not stop here to enquire how far Mr. Holden is, op Is not a e-ma man; or how far he has been created, made,' fostered, strengthened, agisted and actually built up by others. He has our cordial sympathy in, and our admiration for whatever of hot effort he b.n ud, and the success he has derived from it. li-it while his virtue consists in tins laudable Portion and success, it is a small device on which to found a" claim for promotion in- one's own behalf.- and it has always been regretted by Mr. Hold -u'h quondam supporters, that he was a' ways too near akin to Andy Johnson, the tailor boy,' in u inclination to fester anl keep sore a difference of classes, and to profit by these aviations hi society. Mr. Holden has no just came of complaint against any particular class of soei-ty. He was welcomed to the lead of a threat party, when quite a young' man ; . was patronize I by the first intellectual men ofth State, and never needed to fear his" acceptance into the most respectable social sphere it being a raaakcl characteristic in the frmer as it is in the present regulations of RaWgh social lif,i, tint racri! fials an easy entranc3 wherever it eho?es to po. But Mr. Holden will readily (M-iiprehend us when we express the opinion, th it hs could not expect gentlemen K refiued intelligence to assort agreeably with many as s .ciatims that Mr. Uolden found p.casure in. V.nt enough of this. the most prominent occa ion f. Ho! Iri'i life, wli -n hi3 politic d td ti was fess u-itmou anl more reputable than it i-now; w'ion he was a fmni 1 ih'.e competitor for the Dmocraric norai nation for Governor at Char 1 tto, he perpotratel th mt serious- injury u; .n his own prospect!, by a w.vitja an 1 un provoked attack upoathoe whom he was pleas e 1 to call the aristocracy ; and by a special a't.ick upon laictwhe drove from his support soaie of the warmest advocates he had. The re sult was that be was defeated for tha,t nomina tion, and the way was paved for that road to ruin U misguide 1 footsteps have trodden ever iu:e. Th3 attack was unjust, undeserved, im--P .line and unwise, and the blow recoiled on tue head of the striker. It is in the best in terest of society that misfortune should -always fall unon hina who endeavor to array class a'.iinst class. But 14 Cato refers to Mr. Douglas as self-mvls m-tn and predicates a similarity bitweea his fate and Mr. Hojdeu's, upoa the opposition of the "cotton lordi" to Mr. Doug'.a. and that of the 44 m re wealth than trains" lord? to Mr. Ilildsn. The tllustratiou aud parallel a-c unwisely cho-wn for Mr. Holdeu's sake; fir wo are re nin lei of what a glorious opportunity was oifjral to Mr. H ddeu of doing j i-t:cc to bis a'Snitie for self-made mon, in Mr. Douglas ease, and how ingloriously he passed tho opportunity by. Oa tha 3t):"h of J.tta, 1SG0, Mr. II ddeu had re turned from the Biltimore c invention, an 1 he thus addressed the public : 14 We declined to secede, at IVlti.:hre. -' If we had a?ted and voted at all, we would 44 certainly have voted for Stephen A. D-ug- las. We ar now free, however, to, make 'our own choice, not consileiittg our self 4 irrevocably bound by either convention." Ita!riyi Standard, June 3vW'i,lSG0. Oa July the 4tb, in the same year, Mr. Holden v?.s pleased to compliment a speech made t y tha writer of this, in K.deigh, in fovor of Judge Douglas, a.id to testify to th. truthfulness of our account cf the Bal timore convention, (for, liko all ether meu, tec havs been lauded -nd abused ly Mr. llol tl as suited his couveoiea-so at tho time.) Sh r;ly thereaffer Mr. Holden oil lad for a State convention; and in his wo defence, used this language : 4 We can demonsT:ite, if nec -ssary, that Siephen A- Dougbis is the regultr nomi 44 neo of the national democracy." Raleigh Stt'iJird,J! 1th, 18G0. Farther: 44 We know the ndure of the combination, that exists, bat we defy the worst tuat sdfishucss and ambition can accompluh. We will appeal to the people, if necessary, against secession and disunion" Again: " We feel bound to state that the 44 weight of preference, as indicated "by tlia ''letters we have received, is in favor of 44 Douglas ; and we feel bound to state also, that in our opinion a majority of the lead 44 Jng democrats of the State arc in favor cj " Breckinridge. Under these circumstances 44 what are we to do ? We thbik our course " is plain, and that is to raise no name, but " to await the action of the democratic party 44 of the State." Raleigh Standucd, July 14i, 1860. Nov-, what does " Cato" think Mr. Hoi den did ? What do the peopl think he did ? Here was a self-made man Stephen A. Douglas. He was the regular nominee of the national democracy, of which Mr. IIol nen wag an organ, He was opposed by the " Cotton Lords who were" secessionists. and disanionisis," according to Mr. Holden. He was the favorite of the people, as proved by the letters Mr. Ho'deu had received whila Brtrkinridge was only the favorite of a wa jvritg rf the haders. Did Mr. llolden follow the "'jp&it i course?

Thxs, "on-the ms: re liveable occ ifdon, when Mr. Uolden might mark his reverence for the virtue of being-a eelf-raa'd man, he abjured the occasion and renounced the vir- j tue. He abandoned The regular nominee, and trod under foot that orgiw'zifion he had always inculcated. " lie abandoned the favorite of th people and united with Yancey, wlio.n ho hud jvis; threatened to "atrip the covering from. " He abandoned the self-made; mm an-.l united with the "cottm lods" in f w r of the aristocrat.

""And growing more hod more imbued I with the fellowship which conscience u first re- . voiced at, be became an unconditional adjunct of all the consequences that fallowed.

Now, we have another choice trstimonial to Mr. Holden, not from an orin al Y?tok e, but from a traitor who has forsworn his' pative land and his rightful goveri:neo, t take allegiance with their invaders.

We hardly suppose that Mr. llolden carries on any correr-pontlence with Bixter, in reply; aud this paper has not been put ia our bauds to convict him of any such correspond ence with the enemy ; but it is intended, among other things, to lot Mr. -H.ddeu and the publ ic see that -the Yankee enemies and their base allies, Southern traitors, claim him as one of their own. In this' point rf view such things ought tobs pregnant of alarm to Mr. Uolden anei his friends. Distilling Whisky.
