VOL. 1. RALEIGH, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 29, 1864. NO. 22: W EOS mm It is very refreshing. amid the din of arms and the conflict of armies, to find a spot oc- a:onally where quiet prevail, and a tranquil mental occupation furnishes food for intellec tual enj yinent. Such momenta may be found in the clamber of the Supreme C urt now in session ;and we availed ourselves on yester day of the good news from Petersburg when our anxieties were put at rest to indulge in the agreeable opportunity of listening to a law argument. The questions involved, were 1st, The authority of the Court to issue a vrrit of certiorari to bring up the proceedings far revisal of an inferior judge. 2 1, Whether a writ of error lies in matters on habeas corpus. The isue in this case is the liability ot those Principals of substitutes, whose cases, it will be recollected, were settled by His Honor, the Chief Justice, at Salisbury, io the case of "Wal ton ; but with reference to which there was an understanding between counsel, which led to the recognizing of the arre.-tcd persons to await the actiou of the Supreme Gurt. Messrs. Bragg, Winston and Strong (the District Attorney) represent the Government, end Messrs. Moore and Boyden tbe parties, in custody. With such an array of legl talent, it is well supposed that the subject will be thoroughly elucidated. Mr. Strong opened the argument on Monday morning. Detained by the necessity of editori al duty, we ere cot able to hear his argu ment through. Wc have heard it spoken of ia such terms as we expected. Mr. Strong on a piw point always makes an able argument. We were present to hear Mr. Boyden. Ia the character of a lawyer, Mr. Boyden appear to advaute. No :ght f birds enlists his fancy. No desire pf imitation disturbs his natural pose and attitude, and no passion or prejudice which mars his efforts as a politician, sivnys hia judgment and lessens his influence. As a lawyer engaged before a high Court, he is a calm, agreeable, but forcible and logical rcassner, a student thoroughly versed in his eae, who pets his points with courteous but telling effect. It were insincere to withhold from Mr. Boyden the attributes of a powerful alroeate, and the qualities of a strong reasoner Lefvre a cenrt in Bane. Ia this connection, we may state, Mr. Boy den will certainly vote for Got. Vance. His influence, with that f G. Graham, and all the other leaden of the Conservative party, will be used against the self inaugurated pre tentions of Mr. Hclden. (the only thing about l.iru that will ever be inaugurated, by the by.) It is as impossible for Mr. Boyden to support Mr. IloMeu. as for water to flow up hill or whiskey in the hand of an accustomed drinker, to keep from going down his throat. Mr. Mocre continued the argument on Tues day ; and was followed by Mr. Winston, in an elaborate discussion of the whole question. He wb would derive pleasure from hearing Mr. V inston, must nt set his heck, for the fish bite r.ipiuly and are of large size, and any lack of diligence will eventuate in the loss of the fish, with perhaps the hook and pole also ; while he who follows this eminent practitioner with a close observation, will be repaid in the acquisi tion of valuable legal information, drawn from, fountain-head, and cnveyed in choice and precise language, which the English lawyer studies to employ, and his American brethren di not sufficently attend to. The discussion was briefly continued by Messrs. Bragg, Moore and Boyden. Altogether, it was an agreeable interlude amid the dark scenes now enacting, the attendance upon this discussion before the Supreme court. The case holds much learning; the two sides having teen heretofore contested with great armwth ; in one ease where Chief Justice Kent an parsed elaborate opiniou, fetching to his aid the English precedents, and much of his own -solid learning; while Spencer, Judge, argued the' contrary with the aeumcn of his profound legal mind. Again, in the Supreme Court of the United States, Ju !ge Taney elucidated the whole ques tion, and was met by the opinion of Baldwin, in an elaborate, and as Mr. Boyden said, full and able argument, closed up with a recorded pro ten against the decision of the majority. All this was upon the bioad question of the juris diction cf the Court of Errors to revise in cases i f habeas ccrpus. However learned the argu ments, the precedent has been established cn this point, and we incline to the opinion, that it will be followed. On the other point, the counsel for the principals encounter a decision of our Supreme Court on the act of Assembly, as to habeas cor pus, by which it has been held that original jurisdiction has been lodged with that tribunal, cr rather that the Supreme court is a court of common law jurisdiction. . If this be adhered to, the writ of certiorari asked for, will be allowed. On the whole, however, sympathizing with the pets of Mr. Holden and Got. Vance the principals of substitutes we rather think they may have to g. There are to them, however,, two ssurces of consolation: one that they have missed the forty-odd days of consecutive fighting, and that they will gofresh, when they can relieve the draught upon the weary and exhausted who nave borne the heat and burden of the day. And for their further consolation, we tell them, that the nation agrees with every a an for a penny i day ; and it can lawfully do what it pleases with its 'own and if they toil well from the hour when they enter on the work, every one will receive each man his rency. The Georgia papers are inclined to com pliment those uf Raleigh, that they are in an interesting situation, with our columns filled from day te-day with the claims of Got. Vance and the demerits of Mr. Holden. Unfortunately for the respectable appearance of North Caro lina, a pretentious politician has "put himself up," in opposition to the almost universal wish, of this State, for Governor, to ran against the present incumbent ; and this person having a newspaper of his own, and being wholly un conscious of the Tndelicay and want of taste, of "haranguing for votes" for himself, in his own eolumns, from week to week fills the State with all the unscrupulous tirades of self-adulation, and abuse of his competitor, which a long practice as a journey man and foreman in this trade, has 'made him master of. However, therefore, we disrelish the task, it is imposed on us to controvert these weak but by no means therefore, harmless pretensions, and warn the people agaist the arts and character of their owner. This is the more devolved upon us, by the ex ample of Georgia, who not long since, in the Tery height ef our miefortunes.-inflicted upon the nation the first spectacle since the war, of an angry and vindictive political contest when the columns of her papers scarce varied the song of praise of their favorites, and the howl of discontent at their adversaries, by even an allusion to "the situation' If ice are obliged to be saddled with Mr. Holden more than we could wish, and much more than the public find agreeable, we try to find time to chronicle our conflicts and victories, and to publish, for the benefit' of interested friends, the casualties and escapes. Georgia has done more than set the evil example to which we have alluded: she gave in a must extraordinary way, to say the least of it, an impetus to illegitimate movements against the Government, which have had for effect the embarrassment of our progress and the threatening of our success and however much hereafter it may be the desire of Gov ernor Brown and Mr. Vice President Stephens to efface from the recollection of living men tbeir'association with Mr. Holden, they will never be able to do so ; for to them is due, undeniably, the meagre show of strength which at one time he exhibited. To tbeir skirts he pinned himself, and neither of them will be able to extract the "peg fastening,1' without "tearing away" a portion of their garments. It hardly comes with grace, then, from these "eyes" that see not their own "beam to undertake the pulling out of motes in other eyes. It is comfortable, however, to "be "able to reflect, (oer Georgia cotemporaries to the contrary notwithstanding) that wejwho are struggling to maintain and uphold the fair famo and good repute of North Carolina, by averting from her the ineffable disgrace which Mr. Holden's success, with his ascertained dis "fcyalty, would entail on her, are aiding and comforting our soldiers who with greater dili gence and more peril are illustrating the patriotism of the State upon the Kejinesaw mountain, and upon the plains around Peters burg. We glean occasionally from the Georgia press, how with indomitable courage Coleman fights, and how brilliantly and successfully a North Carolina regiment holds hack and repulses' an enemy's column; and the Rich mond papers bring us tidings Irom Peters burg, that when 'oar works were carried and for a moment the fate of Petersburg was ap parently sealed, in the very moment, a -pow-fcl reinforcement arrived and was for mod ia proper position a terrible blazs of musketry followed, and than the cheers of a most foftu nato and successful charge, which crushed the enemy on the instant, and regained the centre line of works." These acknowledgements are "interesting," and the more interesting from Georgia, be cause less obscure than those from Richmond In these last, we recognize bo identification of tchose line of musketry it was, which "timely blaxed;" of whose "cheers" rent the air, and tchose "charge regained the lines," and unsealed the fate of Petersburg, and left it still open to the protection of valor and devotion. But we. knotc, without the telling, that this master con troller of the destiny of Petersburg, "in the very moment," was Major Gen. R. F. Hoke known abeut Richmond as "the little Twink" ler of Plymouth ;" and mere favorably known here as "the military despot." And we know and feel, that every blow which we strike here against Mr. Holden's pretensions to be Governor of North Carolinia, is a blow for the honor of Hoke and his followers, and for all the noble soldiers of the State who are brav ing the exigencies of the war. But for this if this contest in North Carolina were a more po- I lineal struggle between two wings of a party which styles itself, modestly, with all the timidity of a first departure from truth Con servative'1 which has got into a squabble we should not ink our hands with the "concern." Bnt the disloyal purpose behind, imposes an obligation on patriotism whicj we fufill. We call attention to "Special Order No 28," from Lieut. Gen. Holmes, callirfg for the Reserved Force in this city to meet for organ izing of Companies. The law of Cbngre-8 which specifies the liabilities of "Exempts," "Detailed men," &c, for special service, will be found in full in this morning's paper. "Come from Bad Stick." Many persons believe there ia as ranch in the blood of men as in horses' or other noble stock that you cannot make a great and good man of one -who has sprung- from "lojr, depraved parents, any more than a high, mettled charger can be ptoduced out of a mongrel connestoga. - We have often thought of this sentiment in connection with Andrew Johnson the notorious renegade now placed on the ticket - with Abe Lincoln, as a candi date for Vice President of the once United States. Andrew Johnson was born and reared in this city cr ra br its obscure suburbs and some of our inhabit ints remember him as a low-down blackguard, without character', save for viciousness and depravity. His antece dents, were also of the vilest and most degra ded caste. So much by way of illustrating our point. While wo recognia to the fullest extent! the true republican doctrine which places each and every man on bis own merits, we cannot and should not overiook the fundamental laws of humanity impressed by the Creator, under which men resemb e their ancestry more or less closely ; and in examining the claims of any man to confidence and station, we can not safely overlook pedigree, unless where per formance has been so varied, and decided and characteristic, as to leave no room for inqui ry. We have seen many instances of what is called men rising by tbeir own talents, or virtues, or merits, to places supposed to be far above tbeir plane of birth; but it will generally be found in these cases, that the men had really the benefits of pedigree, al though obscured and dimmed ; and they cer tainly had good mothers, and otherwise in herited good blood. For a mschanic of any kind to attain fairly and honorably to a position ordinarily assign ed tii professionally- trained aspirants, is proof ot his merits, and of the sound policy of the system which looks to merits; but we have been often deceived or beguiled by plausible appeals, and by false suppositions, that it was something ennobling to place a man apparent ly above a mechanical position j It has been boasted, for instance, in behalf of this renegade' and political vagabond, Andrew Johnson, that he was a tailor. He never was reputable or trustworthy as a tailor, or in any other craft he always, disgraced the trade. He was a vagabond and 'hief when a boy and in man hood has been a swaggering, profaen swearer, and publicly aud privately a lying adventur er, mighty in premises which he never per Cbrmed. Truly in his care it may be said " Worth makes; the maw Want of it the fel low." "We now tell President Davis, that our people are indifferent to his threats and his blandishments." Sach is the language addressee! ia the last Standard by Mr. Holden to President Davis Mr. Holden assuming to champion the people of North Carolina in this declaration. We note the above to state that indifferent as Mr. Hol den is to the blqndishments of President Davis, and as are his friends, it is scarce two weeks since the Rev. Mi Bragg, a preacher of this place, and a strong friend of Mr. Hplden, was an applicant for one of the President's "blan dishments," in the shape of the Chaplaincy to one of the Hos pitals in this place. And this application teas in the hand writing of Mr. Holden, though not signed with his 'recommendation. GreaLGod, can this be so." ''It is even so," that Mr. Holden would have his friend 'seek office under Mr. Davis, and that ho, Mr. Hol den, would write, but wouldn't sign his applica tion. The object was to instal fte Rev. Mr. Bragg among the soldiers. We say no more of this at present, except to call attention to the "in difference to blandishments!" " Ere long this application of Mr. Bragg, and Mr. Holden's connection with it, may assume more importance. Don't listen to Madam Rumor. Her stories are seldom if ever founded on fact. She is par ticularly loquacious when the telegraph lines are down, as they were last Sunday, and when the mail tails, as it did this morning. Exchange. And we would especially warn the people from the country not to believe the stories they hear when they come to town, of disasters to our arms which are put in circulation by the Holdenites of this community. We had no papers from Richmond or Petersburg on Satur day last, and but little information of operations by telegraph which furnished opportunity or concocting the . grossest falsehoods. Several countrymen told us that they had been told "at the Court house," that Petersburg had certainly been captured by tbeyankees. And on various occasions we have heard of similar discourag ing falsehoods being putjout for circulation in the country. We warn the people not to be lieve any discouraging report they hear, com ing from any cf Mr. Holden's friends. Our armies are successful every where, and Peters burg and Richmond are ours, and will be to the end of the war. Important Sai.k. We invite attention to the list of property advertised for sale on next Tuesday, by Messrs Morehead & Sterling. A rare chariee is here offered those wishing to buy furniture, musical instruments, philoso phical apparatus, &c. Caoght In a Trap. It will be remembered by our readers, for most of them have a bitter and costly experi ence of the fact, that immediately upon the passage of the currency Bill in February last, the dealers in commodities, of every descrip tion, thoughout the 'country, almost without J exception, immediately advanced their prices thirty-three and one-third per cent, for the purpose, as they said, of protecting them selves against loss in the depreciation of the government issues, which by the law was to take place on the 1st of April. Eery sensi -ble man, of course, underwood that this was a mere pretext of the dealers to "swe 1 their profits, without regard to the condition of. the country or the, necessities of the people. Their grasping avarice and unworthy greed for gain resulted in the loss of millions of dollars to people who were but poorly able, to bear it, by the prtmalure depreciation of the currency It is a notorious fact, ton, that the men who j thns ran up their prices one third, aud often more, to cover the prospective reduction in the value of the currency, refused, we believe without exception, to make any concessions in prices in sales for the new currency when it made its appearance. The hypocrisy of their professions, and the iniquity of their practices was thus fully exposed. They were convict ed of speculating upon Ihe wanisaud necessi ties of .their neighbors bj their own conflict-, ing declarations. But when they adopted and practiced this unpatriotic and nefarious policy, they little thought that the strong and searching arm of the law would be thrust into their pockets and compel them to disgorge their ill gotten gains acquired in spite of the clamors and protests' ot their consciences, if they had any, and certainly in the face of universal public contemyt and reprobation, ney however deceived themselves, and will now be com pelled to hand over these extra profits to the public treasury.. Truly are tbey caught in a trap; and iu their sorrow and afflictions they reed not look f,,r sympathy fronrthe public whom they have plundered, for they will not get it. The coun try will rejoice with exceeding great jy that judgment as righteous as it is inexorable has overtaken them in their sins. The cannot escape the payment of the tax without bringing perjury trpon their guil ty souls, and that will consign them to a des tiny which, will put tbera out uf the path of all honest people throughout the rolling peri ods of an endless eternity. The amendment to the act of February JI7th imposes the additional tax of thirty per cent, upon articles enumerated in 'the two first paragraphs of sections four of the present law. The following are the paragraphs re ferred to: . ' ' I.

A correspondent of the Chicago Timet, at Washington, n.ys, "Mr. Lincoln has done much in three years to develope his real char acter. By tbe ftwi of another year the do tl opement will be perfect. For a perm iu such a station to be smutty joker, is bad enough. To be a hypocrite in the sphere that he. occu pies, is iill worse.

Let us hear no mote from tho "Me tropolitan" press, of the insignificant dfuir ol Plymouth.' The ridiculous game of brag and misrep resentation that Mr. Holden, his. organ, and friends have resorti d to, affords the clearest evidence that they consider Js chance ol election a desperate one, and that his cause can only be temporarily bolstered up by de ceiving the people with an imprtssion of his streng:h. When they so far depart fiom truth as to claim that "Wake, Johnston, Gran ville, Chatham, Harnett, Cumberland, and other neighboring counties, will all go for Mr. Holden by large majorities'and that thise who support Gov. Vance here, have aliin dotied ail hope of his-election cv n the Holden tneu themselves must feel arid kt ow that such assertions are but the reckless brass of desperate gamesters, who have pl y d the r last card, ar:d have to n-sort to docep'ii.n and fraud.
