But after a while tf Br. sought his tight

to natter themselves on seruiity.

crossed over to Col. K 's residence, the

At length, when all were assembled,
awaiting with stern faces the command, the
colonel rode up. ordered the volunteers into
a line, as quickly as possible, and doffing
his lofty cocked hat, informed them that a
large body of the enemy had been descried
a few miles above, apparently on a dircctinian to his post

Having thus the data collected, we were
recently much interested in examining the
abie report of the State Geologist of North
Carolina, to tiud that on the leep river, one
of the branches of Cape Fear, there is nn
extensive coal baiu of the hnest bituminous
coai. 1 h.; siack water navigation, which
has been in progress for some time, is about
to he fi'i-hed, so that in throe or four
month this superior coal vill be in our
market. Becent experiments have been
made in our city to test this coal for gas,
ud as we bid occasion to nmit-e a f.-v day
since, they re-ulte 1 iu establishing the fact,

Such being the established sujie.-iority of
this coal, the m xt que-tioti, ill an euouomic
view, is " at nhnt cost cno we get. it to our
market?'' If on inquiry, v-3 are highly
gratified to find that it wi'l not cost more'
than 81 per ton, and as the English coals
are now tiroii"ht to cw iork at c'l
inr ten, it wouid seem that the North Caro-
jina coal, of really superior quality, mu't
soon defy all competition, cither it, this or
the N.w York market.
Wo learn from the gi'isrsp!.ia! r-PTt,
betorJ referred to, that the coal rcgiavu of
IVen river is also rich tn the finest iron ore,
and particularly in that ore called the
" Black Bui'i," so celebrated for the pro-
duciion of the Scotch pig iron. In addition
to these great elements of wealth, there is
on the river, some distance below, an inex-
haistihlc supply of marl, which jidds iii
per cent, of lime; and thus the necessary
flux for the iron is within the reach of llio-e
capitalists who are now about to erect iron
works on the river.
There are also, r.s we se Ly the report,
the finest white oak and pine forests on the
banks of the river, and which farets extend
puck tor miles, the region i, moreover,
famed for the production uf all the cereals
common to the South.
