With this number I resume the sole Editorship the Mr. Wilson, my Associate, having f his own uceord retired. 1 take pleasure in bear- is: testimony to his worth as a man, and to his Mildness and integrity as a Democrat. Nothing i the slightest degree unpleasant occurred lic- tarcen u> during; the five years he has been associa rlwithme; and though he has occasionally writ- i.'ii for the paper.

I have engaged the of Mr. Wilson in the business department, will manage for me in my name. The business of editing and conducting a iper like the Ftan lurd, is by no means easy or ry pleasant. It requires patience, forbearance, a of justice towards both political friends and .pononts, a constant and inflexible devotion to inciple without regard to men, incessant vigilance, 1. 1 may add, almost incessant labor. It is nr.t rme to say to what extent I have succeeded, if I no succeeded at all, in this business. My course before my party and the is for them say whether it has been correct, or of any scr- v to the country. One thing, however, I know have been true to Democracy and to North-Caro- 'in. h'lvc no pledges to make as to the future, for 1 plain reason that T expect to perform my duty my readers and to my party as 1 have heretofore .1 formed it. The contest of is near at hand. it as the most important since the govern- was formed, since its result is most probably ileterminc whether the government shall continue c-vist. I have no fears a.s to the result of the elections in North-Carolina. I think the Dc- icrais will curry their Governor and the Legisln- -e as heretofore, and that the State will cast her ctoral vote for the nominee of the Charleston tivcntion. Beit I hold that a man should always hi.s faith by his and therefore, for part, I expect to labor as energetically and as .-'duously as if the result were in doubt. The De- rcratic party of the State cannot hope to maintain isccndency without effort. It is sometimes more iieult to retain power thun it is to obtain it. Let all, then, determine to work as we woiked in and in 1850; let us do this, and the motley res of "the opposition" will give way and go before us, as they did when KKID triumphed VOL, 44. RiLEIGH. I. C, WEDIE SDAI, NOVEMBER WHOLE vat- tin, nti I have said, in Mr. HoMeii's absence, (which fact they and to pervert and distort thorn, and then hold Mr. Holder! responsible and refuse to accept any explanation. Not only so, but "fellows of tho baser determined, if possible, to injure Mr. Ilolden by any nnd every means, have insulted me, (not to my by insinuating that I was in- stigated and iiii-triicted by Mr. Holders to pursue the course I have pursued in some public meetings, and even to use expressions that I have used publidy on the streets nnd elsewhere. Some persons have so long been eats'-pnws for others that they actually think that out cif every two men there must be one cat's-paw. For this reason they are excusable. I leave them to themselves, despising their low stand- ard of honor, their contemptible machinations, nnd their grovelling dispositions. Mr. Ilolden has bis opinions, and I have mine, lie expresses his as he chooses, and 1 do the same. We have never dill'ered on any essential principle; and it has rarely been the raise that we could not agree on details and non-essentials. In an inter- course as intimate its c.ould exist between two men, for the past five years, not one unpleasant word has been spoken by either that I am aware of. Each lias bad too much respect for the other and tbrhiir- self to attempt dictation; and in withdrawing, as I do, voluntarily and as a matter of choice, from the Mttndtird, there is no man I more highly esteem than its future sole editor. All assaults upon him. ill recoil upon the heads of hi.s assailants, This much of pursoml nuitteix I have thought proper to say; ancll have said it "without and without "favor or affection arising from fear, from reward or the liupc ol reward. I stand by my friends, and defy my enemies. With the exception of a short interval, T now find myself, for the first time in eleven years, released from editorial harness; and n-; they fall from me I feel myself more a freeman, and none the less clevo- ted'to Democratic and organisation. As a private in the ranks, I shall be at my post, and will keep pace with him ;vho goes farthest into the intrenchments of the whether that "Opposition" be found in Southern Know Xothing- ism, Northern Black Kepublictinism, Federalism, or a.ny or all the prolific family of isms now at war, and which have ever been at war, with the Demo- cratic party, with the Constitution, with the rights of the States, and with the freedom, happiness, and prosperity of the people, and the people. FKAXK. WILSON. The "Irrepressible Conflict." The doctrines announced by Mr. Seward, in his Rochester speech, muo displayed their first fruits in the recent outbreak at Harper's Ferry. Mr. Se- ward declared in that speech that the'conllict be- tween slavery and tho abolition forces would go on; that the existence together in the confederacy of slaveholding and non-sliivoliolding States, was in- compatible; and that the conflict between the op- posing forces would terminate in converting the rice and cotton plantations of the South into free terri- tory, or the rye nnd wheat-growing regions of the North into slaveholding territory. This is the issue as presented by the head and lender of the black Re- publican party. In uttering these sentiments at Rochester he but carried out the doctrines of the platform of the black Republicans in in which they pledged themselves to labor to extirpate twin relies of mid Tbe battle between the two sections has hereto- fore been fought in the common territori.s; hut this movement in Virginia indicates that the scene of conflict is to be changed. The theiiisehcs MU to be visited with the torch and the knife; the abo- lition forces are to be directed against the pioperty, the repose, the safety, and the very lives of the peo- ple of the South It is in vain that the black Re- publican journals seek to palliate the wickedness of old Brown and his confederates, by declaiing that he is n madman, and that not responsible for hi.s conduct. If mad, he has shown no small degiee of method in his mildness. He js as Giddings and Ocely, are mad. acts are the legitimate finifs of Ificir doctrines', which teach that slavery is n monstrous evil, to be "extirpated" by every means under the "higher l.uv" which its enemies can command.

The cotton was picked and weighed in the presence of of the neighbors. Respectfully yours, W. P. OssAW.mo.Min boMeror a worse man than that same Ossawattcmiie Brown the world j never knew. His single virtue, "linked with a thousand was bull-dog courage. Fanatic j to the highest pupil, in politics, of the Giddings has been taught to believe that the killing of a slaveholder was an act which God would approve. When in this city last spring, in his lectures, he told of his stealing negroes and run- ning them to his stealing horses, which he then had with him for his shooting down slaveholders, and of other acts equally atro- cious, And said Brown, I wish to know if the people of Cleveland approve of what I have done. Those who approve of my acts will say nnd more than one-half of hfs audience, com- posed of abolitionists, .shouted whilst not a single nay" was uttered by any one present. Such approval at the question was put at all his Brown confidence thnt his party would sustain him in whatever he might d.i aaainst the men of the South, and thus emboldened, the miserable wretch, by survile insurrection, sought to overthrow tbe government and bring himself'to its head.

With the present issue of tiie Sliindtnrd wases my turial connection with it; and I resign the posi- n with far more pleasure than I assumed it five rs ago. In my salutatory, published in the Stitn- i of November 1, 18154, I said My connection with the Klnntlaril is not so for the shedding abroad of my own light, as removing the bushel of business'from the edito- l.mip of the principal editor, that he may be en- to emit more brilliant and more penctratin" of Democracy. As business partner in the islimcnt, T shall probably have but little time for orial lucubrations; but whatever I may desire iv I shall say without fear, favor or affection." pon this principle I have acted, and like all men act on the same principle, I have made both jafls and enemies. The former I F I disregard. I have endeavored to treat all i respect until I was treated with Disrespect; 1'ieii, to maintain my own self-respect, I treated i in like manner as I had been treated by I am happy to say they are few, and if they pleased, I am more than pleased. To such I no favors to such, I ask none. position as associate editor of the Standard ;cn rather a nominal than a real one, as fore- in the extract above quoted from my sa- ry five years ago. I have seldom written a hwl article except when the principal editor was Nevertheless, I have freely exercised my of speaking rny sentiments whenever I do- to do so; and I have nothing to retract.__ convinced of error, I will acknowledge and it. my chief reasons for desiring to withdraw1 ic editorial department of the Standard is, 1 may avoid even the appearance of making Mr. ffsponsible for my acts or opinions, and to n the mouths of fault-seekers the pervcr- '.V invent of my sentiments and expressions, them to his account. Certain persons, II (jiiarters, hostile to me because I am a r" but still more hostile to Mr. Ilolden -c ho is considered in somebody's way to po- f; Promotion, have, for some time past, boon V "nd emmr to catch at my articles, mostly writ- Mr. Syme's I'l'oniiiiciiiiiieiito. The of the ICUh a "Card" from Mr. Syme, in which he discourses quite plainly in relation to the efforts which have been made, and which have thus far failed, to oust him from the Editorial chair of that paper. It appears that at a j meeting of "the Whig and American parties, com- post-d of the members of the Legislature and held about the 7th of February liust, in this City, it "was unanimously agreed that the interests of the party require the establishment of an organ at this place, under such Editorial control as the party may select." Mr. Syme wus promptly informed of this movement by Col. George Little and others. Mr. S., although thus caucused upon, not by the people, but by their representatives, and though of a.iirsc excluded with hi.s friends from the caucus, appears to have manifested every disposition to dispose of hi.s establishment to the offended leaders of his party; and the fact that they have not purchased and proceeded to establish an argun the.ir own, is certainly not to be attributed to .Mr. Syme. M e knew there was n Syme 'ji'ifty and an anti- Syme party in the opposition the time Mr.'. S. purchased the Jtryiitter, but iiV had sened his very bad cause with so much spirit and fidelity, that we were surprised to learn that the opposition to him still existed. Our patriotic and public-spirited fellow-eitixen, Col. George Little, by viitue of his position as Chivirman of the "Opposition State seems to have been unusually troubled with the burden of his responsibility in this busi- ness. But while we sympathize him in his We reiter.ite the opinion, expressed in our last, that this outbreak will strengthen the friends of the Constitution in the non-slaveliolding States. The battle for the Constitution i.s to he fought in that j portion of the Union in ISliU; and before the battle is fairly begun, a.s well as while it is going on, it is the imperative duly of every true Soulhoin m.in to encourage and uphold those patriotic men in the j non-slaveholding States who arc contending for our j rights. Senard and his bloody doctrines are as i much detested and as firmly opposed by the Dunio- crats of the fiee States, and by a porticn of the old line Fillmore Whigs and Americans, as they are by the people of '.he South. Let us m a crisis like Ill's have no divisions among Southern us hear nothing more of the pro-vised union of "the oppr- sition" North and South; hut, on thu ccitMrary, let j the black Republicans be given distinrllv to under- anxious, systematic, and long-continued efforts to j displace our venerable neighbor, we cannot help ad- miring the spirit in which he negotiated with our neighbor for the establishment. Lie even went so far (says Mr. Syme) as to state to Mr. S. that the offer he had made the party in the way of a bargain thought to be too liberal" on Mr. Syme's part; and yet after all, we arc informed that no bargain was made. It is not for us to explain this mystery. It is possible that the explanation may be found in the fact that it is easier to talk about raising large sums of money than it is to raise them. The patriotism of .some people, when tested, is not always equal to the emergency. It would he an excellent thing, quoth these "opposition leaders, lo have an "opposition" newspaper in Raleigh under their control; but it was by no means an ex- cellent thing to furnish the means with which to purchase it. We call this a fuss indeed. When and where will it end JUDGE DOUGLAS IN REPLY TO JUDGE have received from Judge Douglas a copy of his re- ply to Judge Black. This document occupies twen- ty-four large octavo pages, closely printed, and is characterized by much ability. We do not perceive that Judge D. has mended the matter" to any extent on the question of Territorial sovereignty.__ The Southern people will never agree that the peo- ple of a Territory, before they assume sovereignty, can decide the slavery question one way or other. Judge Douglas complains that he has been charg- ed with being "a working, struggling candidate for the Presidency." He denies this charge in the most emphatic terms. He says, personally I do not desire the Presidency at this time. I prefer a seat in the Senate for the next six years, with the chance of .1 re-election, to being President for' four years at i.iy period of life." He declares further- more that he will adhere unfalteringly to the na- tional Democratic platform, and intimates quite plainly that he would vote for the Democratic1 can- didate for President, with whom he "might differ on certain in preference to the candidate of tho black Republican party. I stand that they have no sympathizers in this region, I and that the election of Soward to the Presidencv, I with his odious doctrines, and pfter what has occur- red at Haiper's Fern, would be regarded as a de- liberate and final declaration of the North against the South, and would-sound the de.ith-kncll of the union of the States. The Trial of ihc Insurgents, The preliminary trial of old Brown, Stevens, and Coppie, white men, and of Shields, Ciieen, and Cop- luid, colored, was commenced at Chiirlestown, the County scat of Jefferson, VH (distant about eight miles fiorn Harper's on Tuesday last. The i trial is conducted by justices of he peace. They may acquit, but cannot condemn, but must send the accused for trial before the Circuit Court. 'ihe prisoners have employed Mr. Chase, of Ohio, to defend them. An able Virginia lawyer had been assigned them for their defence by tho Court, hut they preferred Hack Republican Chnse. The En- qHirer appeals to the people to treat Mr. Chase re- spectfully, and to give him ti fair and full hearing i before the Court. The Washington Constitution of the 215th pub- lishes authentic documents in the shape of letters from John Smith Brown and others, which j show wide-spread arrangements for the outbreak at Harper's Ferry, and implicate Joshua R. Giddings in the conspiracy. Mr. Senator Mason, of Virginia, publishes a letter in the same number of the C'onntitutioii, in which among other things he states that "not a .slave es- caped or attempted to escape during the Of tho few carried off by Cook across the river, ail escaped from him and came safely back but one, who, it appears, was drowned while crossing the river homeward bound." If at all possible, we sincerely trust that Giddings ami 'Gerritt Smith may be reached and dealt with. But we dp not well see how they can he reached by prpcsss of law. And then, if given up by the au- of the States in which they may be found would not the abolitionists muster in such num- bjrs as to obstruct and hinder the course of justice 1 CiT'The Fnyetteulle Carolinian of the 20th, in copying the communication signed which lirst appeared in the fyln't nf (he and after- wards in the fitinidnnl, says: We publish in another column of to-day's paper, by request (if the author, a communication signed neliliessed to the working-men of North- Carolina.
