From the Fayetteville Observer we learn that hon. Warren Winslow has resigned his seat in the 
Convention. We regret to hear the Mr. Winslow's health is seriously impaired. The Observer states that it has 
been requested by several gentlemen to propose the name of William M. L. McKay, Esq., as his successor. While 
Cumberland and Harnett have many able and worthy gentlemen, highly competent to fill the seat of Mr. Winslow, 
they perhaps have no fitter man for the post than Mr. McKay, and none perhaps, for whom the people of all parties 
would more readily vote. He is a sound, reliable son of the old North State, and an able man. We hope that he will 
consent to serve, and that the people will elect him.
