the Raleigh Standard
says: North Carolina
still commands us to obey the Federal
laws and to respect the Federal
Up to this moment these laws and these authorities have breathed nothing but respect for our State, and have offered nothing but protection to our citizens.
It will be time enough to talk about levying war and capturing forts when the State
shall have dissolved her relations with the Union
She has not done so yet, and we trust that no such step will be required.
She is too brave to run out of the Union
under temporary panics, and she is too wise to commit herself to revolution for the purpose merely of imitating the examples of other States.
