The Mecklenburg Declaration. A letter from the Hon. George Uancrolt, our Minister to England, which was laid before the Legislature of North Carolina a few days since, fully dissipates the doubts which had previously been entertained as lo the authenticity of the declaration of Independence made al Mecklenburg, North Carolina, in May 1775. This, consequently, was the first declaration ol American liberty. Mr. Jefferson always insisted that this document was spurious. It was brought to light by the Raleigh Register in 1819. The evidence produced b y Mr. Bancroft, is a letter sent to England by Sir James Wa ' niht, then Governor of Georgia, dated June 20lh, 1775, which says :— " By the enclosed paper, your Lordship will see the extraordinary resolves of llie people of Charlotte.Town in Mecklenburg county; and I should not be surprised if the same should be done every where else." The " enclosed paper' was a copy of the " South Carolina Gazette and Country Journal," of Tuesday, J...

A Gold Washer. A Mr. Raymond, of St. Louis, has been- exhibiting in that i-ily a model of a machine which lie calls a "Gold Washer," intended for use in California. Ho has as yet only'built a model upon a small scale, but from the principle, and llie certainty with which ibis model works, there can be no doubt of the success of a larger machine. The Republican says,; ' We saw fine filings ol lead , mixed with several hundred times their bulk of clay, run through the machine; and when the oporatioti was through, the lead, to a particle, remained separated entirely from the earth. The same result was obtained-«p?h some brass tilings. These testa satisfied those present of ils entire success, and adaptation lo the purpose. Il will require three men to attend it—one to keep it in motion, one lo feed il, and one lo supply it wilh water.— The application of horse or steam power, would obviate the nigressiiyof more than one person. It is an ingenious contrivance , but-so simple in its co...

California Gold. The gold excitement i« as strong as.ever.— In one day last week ten vessels sailed from New York. In some ihe accommodations were indeed miserable, but the emigrants all appeared lo be in high spirits. Among the myriads bound tor California there are a great many very reckles.iaud unprincipled men, but the majority we believe aror well behaved citizens, in fact, no-person can get there without having been able to lay up a tew ot the dollars and cents. There-are some o( tde most respectable of our citizens leaving for San Francisco, men of known character, intelligence and enterprise. These are just ihe class ol men to prosper there and do good to themselves and olhers. Haulships will be experienced for awhile, hut it is lo be hoped that they will be remunerated for their pains. Throughout ihe Southwest, in fact throughout all the Stales, the accounts that reach us contain evidences of the gold fever raging in almost every hamlet. It isealeulated that no less than ...

Pre-emption Rights—Gold Hunters. Dr. Jell , who has recently arrived at St: Lonis, from California, gives some information respecting ihe travelling facilities in that country, and confirms the statement of the quantity and quaU ity of ihe gold in that country. He mentions one circumstance that is rather ludicrous, and shows the nature of the claim advanced by some of the gold hunters to riches which, as yet, we believe belong lo the government. A parly of some twenty or thirty were exploring a dry ravine lhal led lo a mountain supposed lo be rich with precious ore. When near its base, they came suddtinly upon a spot which glitiered like ihe firmament in a clear night with gold dust ahd ore, caused by the washings from the mountains. In an instant every man threw himself upon the ground where lay scattered the treasure, and sprawling Out his arms and legs, claimed a pre-emplion to ihe surface that he could cover in ibis way. The title was regarded by each as^ood, and the uveiage y...

Moral Character. There is nothing which add* so much to Ihe beauty and power of man, as a good moral character. It is his wealth—his influence—his life. Il dignities him in every station—exalts him in every condition, and glorifies him al every period of life. Such a character is more to be desired than everything else on earlh.— It makes a man free and independent. No servile tool—no crouching sycophant—no treacherous honor-seeker ever bore such a character. The pure joys of truih and righteousness never spring in such a bosom. If young men but knew how much a good character would dignify ami exalt them—how glorious it would make their prospects , even, in ihis life, never should we find Ihem yielding lo the grovelling and base-born passions of human nature.

miscellaneous Selections Character of Napoleon's CaYinet At the head of Napoleon's Cabinet is Odilon Barrot. He holds the portfolio ofiHVlinister of Justice. After twenty years stead y pursuit of power, he is at Inst prime minister. He attacked the Government of Louis Philippe because Louis Philippe would not have him, but preferred M. Guizot. Though not then a republican, he had indirectly a large share in the revolution which produced the " republic. He has his reward. AVa statesman he possesses the fundamental quality of unblemished honesty; a rare endowment for a man who has so long played so important a part in party politics. But in respect of talent he is not above mediocrity, and will hardly be found equal, for any - length of time, to the emergencies of the position in which he is now p laced. ' M. Droujin de Lhuys, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, is n man of more tnlent but • of less sincerity. He was formerly secreta-: ry of legation at the Hacue and at Madrid, and...
