We observe that Col. W. L. Sounders and Mnj. W. J, Sautiders'have both declared, in the papers, that they are not candidates for Doorkeeper to the Seaate. As the advertisement referred to first ap- peared in this journal, it is, perhaps, proper that v. c should slate that the genlU man, W. J. Saundt-rs, who announces himself for the olli'ie, is a soldier on 'duty, and is a citizen of Stanly County. The Standard, wo observe, notifies the Conserva- tire members of the Legislature, to meet m-this city on Friday or Saturday before the meeting of tho Legislature, to organize for the purpose of de- feating the aims of the Destructive" party. _ In this it assumes to be the organ of the Conservatives. You, fellow do not acknowledge such lead- ership. The Gvnservfttive newspaper will not, while under the control of the undersigned, seek to truct you or your representatives as to your or their duty. You utid thev know it, and will perform it. J. B. NKATIIEIIY. In the last issue of the Standard we said The Legislature of North-Carolina will assemble in this City on Monday the 21st November. We respectfully and earnestly appeal to the Conserva- tive members to be in Raleigh on Friday or Sat- urday preceding, so as to unite in some way to pre- vent tho Destructives from controlling the organi- zation and legi.-.lation of tho two Houses. This is H matter of paramount importance, and ought not to be In the Ursi place, we "notified no one to attend, but simply appealed to Conservative, members to do so in the socutul place, we never have, nor do we now assume to be the organ of Conservatives, but only tho Editor of a Conservative paper in the third place, we have not sought to instruct" any one as to what they should or should not do. We now repeat our appeal to the Conservative members to be in Raleigh at an early moment, so RS Lo make arrangements to defeat the aims of .the Destructives. There are four parties or divisions among the members elect, as follows: Conserva- tives after the straiw-st Conserva- tives elected by Conservative Conser- vatives elected by Destructive Dostruc tives. We have made a careful calculation, and find that the Vance Conservatives elected by Conserva- tive votes, mid Conservatives "after the straitest have a small majority in the two Houses; and therefore, by uniting, they should do, and as the Conservative voters of the State expect them to do, they can shape and control the legislation of the Slate. There may be, and there are, no doubt, a few Conservatives elected by Destructive votes who can be relied on, but, as a general rule, these gentlemen will vote with the Destructires. Having made these suggestions, our skirts will be clear, whatever may be done or omitted to be done. We do not oven "assume to spetk for the "strait- est but expressed only our individual views. But of two things we are sure: First, that the "straitest and willing as they are to harmonize with all 'true Conservatives, will do nothing to compromise their principles or forfeit their own self-respect; and secondly, that in no event will they rote for or unite with the Destruc- tive either as to men or measures. If thia is not true Conservatism, then pray tell us is. RALEIGH; N. C., WBDNES DAY, NOY. 16, 1864. WHOLE NUMBER 1539. President's Mensage. RICHMOND, Nov. 7th ,1864. Congress met to-day pursuant to adjournment, and the message from the President was received and read. It begins wfth a review of the military operations since the adjournment of Congress in June, and recognizes the protection of in enabling us successfully to withstand tho utmost eflWrts of the enemy tor our subjugation. We have recovered Texas, from tho enemy, and Arkansas with the exception of a few fortified posts; nearly the whole of Northern and Western Mississippi, Northern Alabama arid Western Ten- nessee are again, in our possession. All attempts to penetrate from the coast have been baffled. In Southwestern Virginia successive armies have been routed. A portion of Eastern Tennesse has been re conquered by our troops. The enemy's main army, after a series of defeats and constant repulse of repeated assaults, is fitill engaged in an effort to captuie Petersburg. The army nf Sherman having succeeded in obtaining possession of AtlanU, >s unable to secure any ulti- mate advantage from this success. Had we boon compelled to evacluate Richmond as well as Allan lu, the Confederacy would have remained as defiant as ever. No military success of the em my can MC. complish the destruction of Confederacy, nor save the ent-my from c insum diain of blood and treasuro whioli continue until he shall er.no peace aHamuble unless b.ist'd on ihe recogni- tion of our ijideleasiuii: lights, No change in ihe conduct of foreign affairs can be announced. The recognition of our indepen- dence is withheld irom us on the thai rucugniiiou would bo valueless without mlervuntion. Wo wish no intervention. We know ourselves ful- ly competent to maintain our rights and indepen- dence. IVire is impossible without independence, and it is nut to be expected that the will anticipate neutrals in the recognition of mat independence. The total amount of the public debt, on the first of October, was eleven hundred and twenty six millions ol dollars. No additional appropriations are required ibr meeting the luuds of the public .service up to tho first Federal government of ihe United Htdtes. Having commcm'ed this .struggle to perpetuate the inptitution of slavery, nnd having failed, you are now vtquirtd to plaee it upon a basio of ultimate, if not immediate, And if they should take this latter view of tho case, and of their duty therein, what will there be. surprising about it Surely, those persons who propose this measure, have no confidence in our ability to succeed without the aid of the negro as A soldier. This conclusion is drawn from the fact, that no such proposition was ever nude at a time when we had a sufficient number of soldiers to make headway against the enemy; and from tho further fact that from the time when Mr. Lincoln first commenced using them as soldiers, we have ridioiiled the idea, that the negro posses- sed any fighting qualities whatever, or that it was possible to raulio a soldier out of him. If they are correct in their opinion tha'. we cannot succeed without the aid of the negro as a I have no objection to using him for any otherservice I do not hesitate to say that our taunt lost, arid that we should open negotiations terms df rcRtor.'Uion as .won as pombh. I possibly say anything else, for my whole argument is to prove that measure of arming the slaves would tuin our cause, even if it were prosperous, and i conscientiously believe that T am correct. If Congress does not take action in the. matter before that time, I hype the Legislature will s'poak out in tones of thunder against this nefarious, pro- position, for if it should be adopted, then muy God have mercy upon the defencfless women and chil- dren of this devoted Confederacy.
