We publish on our first psge this week the important law in relation to Laudlord and Tenant, except the firms of procedure in cases of summary before a justice of the peace, which we will publish uext week if we can make room for them. This act is one of general importance, and our readers would do well to file this number of the paper iu order to preserve it. in lAttirr. " 'We see it stated that a paper is to be es tablished at Boston upon a capital of $50,- 000 for the purpose of advocating free trade. We are not at all prepared to hear this. Tin position of the two sections is bound to change on tins question. Ten years hence the South will be a unit in favor of a tariff for revenue wiili incidental protection while the North will generally favor free trade. A tariff for revenue with incidental protection, would be a fair compromise between those who for merly favored a tariff for protection, and who were for free trade and direct taxation. Snch was tlie object of the Democratic platform ; adopt' d at the New York C.uvention on the 4th of July last. The amount of fraud per petrated iu the Internal Kevenns department, under the present system of excises, has done more to explode free traU ideas in the South than all the arguments ever made against it. Tbey might have survived the attacks of Hamiltou, of Smith, of Stewart and of Clay, but they are not likely to survive the blow has been given to thein hy the tobacco jakey rings. But a more powerful :. and the one which influences when all others fail, is that it will i ths interest of the South to oppose free for the future. The surplus capital of outh which was heretofore invested in Ladies of the Memorial Association and Felluw-Cititei.s : We have come with sad and reverent feeling to pay our annual tribute of grateful remembrance to the uotilt- dead and to hold communion with their spirits. Far away fiom the world which worships only tin' fortunate, wo have come to lay our tender offering and drop our icul on Ilic Oust ol those lor whom no victor's rhaplrts will ever be woven, for those who strnflid and died for s cause which is dead with them, and who fell beneath a banner which once floated fair and high, hut is now folded forever. e have come to do honor to men to whom Fortune has allotted the cvnress and not the laurel, hut who have left be hind them a legacy of undying renown to their country. The. words of sincere grief are unstudied and impulsive, and we are not here lo-dav to speak or. listen to cold and lormal phrases, but to pour out onr In-art. These 1 , I , c . . , juii- our oioiiiri h graves, nome ot these fl fallen heroes had their childhood's home ou tho shores of the ever-sound in Gulf. nnder the palmetto of one sisfrr Carolina. From the banks of the Chit t.ihioi hie, the Alabama, the ti.iv.u.n.ih. from mountain and from plain, they came at the coun try s cull, tee champions ol ft common cause linl hjBWfhcy fh'rioprnrr herr, under these grassy hillocks decorate! by fair hands, and they all are our brothers. Many of their names are unknnwn to us ; but we pay our tribute, also to the un known dead, for wc know that somebody's darling sleeps under each ot these little mound. The heart of mother, wife, or sister perhaps ached und hoped long for their return, but they never came. Often when evening twilight was settling down upon orange grove and jessamide bower, loved one. , in the home far away, have gazed forth wistfully for the face and form of these whom death has consigned to our keeping forever. The eye has look ed and the ear hn listened for them, but tney cine not. Unly night and despair came. Let us drop a flower and n tear on their graves, and hope that gentle hearts and fair hands may this day do the same for our loved ones that went aud never came again. W e are the children of a bereaved and saddened land. The Souih sits to-day as a mourning matron, clad in widow s weeds, weeping at tho sepulchre of her noblest ons the sons who died for her. Well may she weep ; lor no land ever la mented more glorious heroes or more de voted patriots. And well nwy shecheibli their sleeping dust, for her wealth, her splendor, and her power, are gone ; only "her honor aud her gjaves arc left. It is not my pnrpose on this occasion to discuss questions which have uten de cided by force, nor to re-open controver sies which the sword ha se.tth-d. Nor is it in my heart to speak harshly of those in tho list of crushed and bleeding na lions, where the names of Israel ana Car thage and Barraatia and Kriu stood before. And like those down-trodden sisters iu misfortune, she too has (ho proud consola tion to know that even Iu defeat her glory shines out with an effulgence which dim the glory ol tin conqueror.

This Southern sun which had warmed our temperaments and given us enthusiasm, fire, and passion, was supposed to have relaxed our sinews and destroyed our eni i gy. In the day or trial the world was soon convinced of its mistake.

There nro those here who were witnesses of their high courage and noble firmness in the day of battle, and which it is but t-implo truth to say were unsurpassed even by the Tewi h Le gion of Caesar or the o4l Guard of Napo leon. And these fair ladies who are lis tening to me to-day, hut who a slsirt while since were ministering angels in the hos pitals have themselves seen how nnmur intiringly and unflinchingly .hr pangs ol disease nnd the tortnre of wmiuds were endured by the Southern soldier.

If (hey really fought for Empire, and not for lib erty, they did 60 unwillingly. Nor shall I say an) thing with the de sign of awakening useless leelings of dis content with tin; results of that gigantic civil strife. I recognize the n-rand princi ple, and derive consolation from it, that "There's a Divinity that shapos our ond, Rough kewta'eui as we will.'; And with a firm trust in a superintend i ig Providence, who moHlds the de.-tiny ol nations as of men, unblenchiiig we can look the dread, mysterious future in the face, and fearlessly await what it may have iu store for us. But while I would do justice to our late adversaries, and would not encourage vain regret over their success -and our defeat, nevertheless, iu the name of these sleeping heroes around us, I r.sk the world to do justice also to their motives, their charac ters, and their deeds, us well as to the cause in which they perished. As for the cause itself, I care not at this time to en ter upon any extended remm ks respecting Its merits or demerits, i he time has not yet come for that Men's minds are not Yjet sufficiently impartial Posterity alone wilt be calm enough to weigh these great questions, after time shall huve brought to ripeness all the iruits of tur overthrow, But I shall be pardoned for say in;', in a single word, w hat was our own view of our own cause. It was, in oui opinion and in the opinion of these men who died or it, a contest for the right of pell-gov ernment. 1 eri State and eight million of men claimed the privilege of governing themselves in their own way, and it was denied them. ' i , On the same fields, les than a century ago, our fathers fought for the right of thtee millions to govern themselves ; and i having established it, they niiade this gieat principle the foundation stone of Ameri can institution. The woild ha ceased to call them rebels, and now honor them as patriots and sages. If ai struggle Hor sell-government was their glory, by what strange alchemy is it transmitted into our crime Noue ther than the. diflei encc of fortune. Successful, the world calls them heroes. Unsuccessful, some daro to call us traitor. But, alter all, it is n unsafe rule to measure virtue by its good fortune, and make success the test of excellence. This never' can be true in a world which ha worshipped demons and crucified its God flight makes right among savages only. But, wise men, who look into the essence of things, well know that while fortune is fickle, truth i changeless and immortal. Upon the defeat of our armies we lost the privilege of self-government. Stran gers now dictate our law. Strangers fill our offices. Strangers occupy our places at the council board of the country. We are as aliens in our own land Liberty's holy shrine opens iro door to as unless we crawl as suppliants or oasety lorswear our selves. Strangers and servants bear rule over us.

No! w e will prove our claim to lo vali v by being loyal to Human Nature aud to the sacred memory oLonr imttrhle braves.

Company - grant the assumption this Company would be the loser it it wers to accept the A. Ac N. (1. Rail Road as a free gift, and be compelled to keep it in goon running order At the last session of the General As sembly of North Carolina a bill wa pased allowing the stockholder to con solidate if they thought proper. This eOHSolidtttion act could never have passed uKii its own merits it was lorced through by being attached to the great omnibus Rail Koid schemes. If you will examine this bill carefully, end com pare it with ths original charter of this Company will see at once, that if we were ever so an lions to consolidate, we could i n think of such a thing nnder the present act. See for a moment. It wipe out all of your original right, and dic tate what per cent, shall be charged, 'and no other," upon ait'cle- sent over the toad. !t is plain to see that no freight w ill ever reach Morehead City under that law, and no through freight would eve pas beyoiid G i eensboro.

Doubtless ever' artifice will be resorted to, to g-t your consent to consolidation. Vour proxies will be vigilantly sought air ter, and every argument of a drowning atari will bo brought to bear to beg yon to consolidate yonr road w ith theirs, which only means to help them pay their debts and keip up their road, ll you are op posed to consolidation i would waru you ty be careful with whom you confide as a proxy. If the opponents of connolida lion stand firm, we can detent them by large majority, and thus save our road from destruction. Freights and passenger are gradually increasing, and our through connection will soon extend to Atlanta, Ga. When this take plate your road wjll pay you a liandsome itivitletui, and yonr stock Will go to par. But. it you conolidate all is lost, and we will have to depend entirely on way station for support.
