In other respects we regard this truly
able and patriotic State paper with unoua-

the jrencrous devotion with which he has
aaeri fined himself to his honest convictions

There is another grave quettioo which

the latter could claim no resulting rights.
He shewed that the compact was the work

duced the conclusion that whatever rights
in the territories were reserved belonged to
the several States and not to the people of
ihe territories lie concluded that it was
the duty of the Federal tiovernment both
itself to observo the constitutional rights
of tho States and to force the territorial
governments its creatures al.so to respect
those rights. In regard to slavery be .-aid
that the people of each State hi d reserved

We do not intend to go into any extend-

Wo have already ospresseil uir deter-

reflect light upon the motives of pro niueut

Horace Greeley for Douglas We have also
seen Mi. Dopglai embrace the KlUAtter
At a late meeting of tho DoUglai de-
mocracy in odianopolll hell to rejoice
over the result of the late Illinois election
the Hon. John O. Devia a distinguished
mm declared that " no man who approv-
ed the doctrine that tho Constitution oar-
ried Slavery into the territories could carry
a siugle township in auv free State." He
no Uoulit expressed tlie view.
This then is iu;uler MVereiguly ac-
oording to that dojtriue the first territorial
Legislature representing a few thousand
quatten can exclude slavery from a terri-
tory where it has previously eii.-tcd. This
is bad inongh but it goes .still farther. It
declares that slavery is an inomoloui insti
tution cannot exist unless it is created by-
positive law and that the Federal Consti-
tution cannot cany it Into the common ter-
ritoriea of the Republlo We have very
little sympathy with such Douglas Ieuio-
crats. and nro not dispoaed to join in si out
of triumph raised by some of our Southern
exchanges over the election of Douglas.
We can easily see how the Donglai men
have triumphed in tho North while the
Democracy generally was defeated The

ponses of operating the road the State was
entitled to have n dividend mi her preferred
stock and that such receipts were not pro-
perly applicable lothe payment of tin- debts
of i be. Company contracted antecedent to
the pasngp of the Mid act or tn new work-
to be constructed Or If to the latter they
were only applicable to such as were imlis
peiisably necessary to operate the road
Whereas the rep irt- of the officers of the
company showed lb it these receipts were
sufficient to pay a dividend to the St a I In
eaeb of tb "So years but that they bad been
applied by the officers of the company lo
the discharge of other debts and to the
construction account. The officers and
stockholders of the company took u differ-
cut view of the matter ami insisted (hit
the fond bad ben properly and legally up
plieil and that the State had no jii-I claim
to have anv dividend under the circum-
stances. The proty Of the State reported
these fac's to me to the end that I might
take such nclioii in the pfimiaea as in my
opinion the interests of ihe Slate loighl
lenutrOi In the conflict of opinion I did
not deem it advisable to lake any steps to
assert the claim of the Slate but eonelu-li d
to submit the whole matter to the General
Aaaembly fur such directions If any as
they may think proper to give."
In conclusion and in illustration of our
remarks we might point to those :candahius
scenes of riot and debauchery which have
so often allocked the moral tcnae of this
Oommunily during the past sessions of the
Legislature. We have indeed seen the
agents of embryo companies plying with tin-
costliest wines the lips of venerable Sena-
tors and respectable representatives until
the streets rang with the ribald wit ind
blasphemous execrations of those who wen
sent here to jjuard ihe most important right!
of the people. It is lucky fof the people

In our last Issue we copiedextracls from
the message of the (iovernor of lleorgia
denouncing a gross aud impudent violation
of the law by the chartered hauks of lleor-
gia. We now append to this article an extract
from a late message of liovernor Bragg of
North Caioliua. It relates to the affairs of
the Iialeigh and Gaston liailroad Company.
The Sate of North Caroliua had invested
one million dollars in tho stocks of that
company. It will he seen that the com-
pany refused to pay the State the dividend
to which she was cutitlc notwithstanding
it had tho funds to do so. Thus bauklog
companies ore not the only corporations
which violate the law. We promise to con-
tinue our illustrations in lubseriucut num-
bers of this paper
We invito our reader! to peruse the ex-
tract lo whieh we havo referred :
" The liailroad sto:ks belonging to the
Ptate and not before appropriated to other
purposes constitute the chief purl of the
sinking fund. Tho receipts so far bte

deelared on stock iu the iialeigh and lias-
ton liailroad Company. It was hoped and
I believe generally expected that after
your last session divideuds would be made
by the North Carolina liailroad Company
at least on the preferred stock held by the
State for her last Subscription of one mil-
lion of dollars In relatiou to this a qua-
ti 011 has ariseu of some importance to the
State as well as to the individual stock-
holders and to which 1 fLel it my duty to
call your attention.
Thin preferred stock was taken by virtue
of in act ob. 112 Lawa ll-'o entitled
