Gov. Vance.

The Governor of North Carolina, is addressing the people in various sections of the State upon the great questions of the day. We have seldom seen a finer specimen of eloquence than his speech as reported in late Raleigh papers. We doubt whether the first American Revolution ever produced anything more patriotic, grand, and soul inspiring. There are passages in it worthy of Patrick Henry, and which thrill the heart and make the blood burn like the notes of a clarion. That speech ought to be read at the head of regiments and distributed broadcast through the land. Truly, this Gov. Vance, soldier, statesman, and orator, is one of the most extraordinary public men of the day.
