The exercises of Davidson College,
N.C. are suspended in consequence of
a difficulty between the students and
Faculty; cause—the suspension of an
undergraduate, which the students think
unjust, and most probably as in most
similar instances, they are right. Just
laws must be sustained, but if his ex
pulsion results from caprice, or the grati
fication of the malignity of certain ones
of the Faculty, as is sometimes the case,
and usually of the most contemptible
non-entities in it, let them rebel, and
stand by their principles.
The startling word of Reform, has
thundered at the gates the Universities
of Cambridge and Oxford in England,
and we will find in American Colleges,
that enquiries wilt continue to be made,
as to their just government, and the
fitness of Professors.
The furego’ng appears in the Banner
of to-day. One who is a subscriber to
your paper, and who is also a parent,
wishing to preserve order in his family,
would be pleased if you would rebuke
the man who encourages rowdyism in
boys. Parents ought to be cautioned
against receiving such nn editor’s slang
into their families. Davidson College
is a Presbyterian School under the man
agement of wise and pious men, who
know what is right better than boys.

U# We publish the above not only as
an act of courtesy to the writer, but be
cause we think his views are just. In
this “ fast’’ age, ther e is a spirit of in
subordination abroad among the youth
of our country, which bodes no good
to themselves or to society in general.—
It is the duty of e\ery patriot and phi
lanthropist to frown down this sp rit.—
The only hope of the continuance of
rational liberty lies in obedience to law
and constituted authorities. An unruly,
disobedient bog con never make a good
man. We want our youthful readers

Since our last issue, a considera
ble quantity of cotton has. been brought
to market, and sold at from 5 to 7 cents.
We think our planters are acting wisely
in selling. It is better to sell at a com
paratively low price than to leave debts
unpaid, and wait for an advance, which
may never come. We hope, therefore,
that the entire crop will be sold at once,
and drive the grim monster Hard Times
from our midst.

For the Southern Watchman.
Mu. Eihtok : Sometime since there
appeared in your columns an article up
on ;!;e construction of a new bridge,which
'is much wanted in place of the present
crazy structure,which isa iisgrnce to the
town and county. Allow me thus late
to continue the subject, having been
prevented from doing so before by the
pressure of business. The enquiry would
arise, Where shall the site of the new
bridge be ? I submit the following,
hoping by so doing to draw out some val
uable suggestions upon a subject which
should be kept before the public. Sonic
thirty or forty yards farther up*llie
stream (from the old bridge) is a ledge
of rocks ; le f this be the base of a stone
"pier; upon the opposite side erect the
other; upon these cons.ruct a self-sup
porting bridge, the span of which may
not be m«.re than three hundred feet;
there will yet remain the branch to cross,
which is of small moment, being fordable
here. The neck of ground between is
sufficiently high to furnish much mate
rial for constructing piers, &,c. The
bridge will be much shorter, and the
old one can be used during the construc
tion of the new,if it stand so long. These
are nut the only advantages. By run
ning the road from the bridge across the
• branch, directly up the hollow, so on,
past the spring, just beyond the Depot:
here pass under the Railroad track
(which is sufficiently elevated for that
purpose) into the old road, we have a
gradual inclined plane instead of the
heavy hills for wagoning from town.—
The land upon the oilier side will then
be valuable for building lots; and Carr’s
mill wiii be accessible from the neck
between the Oconee and branch, which
is not now the case. Plans for the
bridge can be given, if desired.

Guilford is about 20 years old, light copper

rode off a tall dark bay horse mule, ulucli
