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. Feb. 1, 1855. 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 to stick a pin here. 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. Ice! Ice!—On last Thursday, such of our citizens as were au fait in the beautiful art of skating, had a glorious time, we are told, at Carr's mill-pond, which was frozen over for two or three heavy loss, days.

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. M. E. 880 AGENTS WANTED!! One (or every County iu the SUNNY SOUTH, To sell the Most Splendid Hi-tory ever published, Entitled, THE NEW WORLD.
