PROGRES OF MANUFACTURES IN
j THE SOUTH.
We continue to note the onward progress of
industry in. the sunny South. The planters of
cotton oimljt.fo see ihe necessity of cherishinir
manufactuiesl amongst us. The startling re
volutions in .Europe have, Hr the present at
least, deprived the cotion planters of the ad
vantage ofth continental market ; and should
Great Britain become entangled with crum
bling thrones and rising republics, she may not
require tnuchjl if any cotton, until oil be poured
over the troubled waters.
The time is not far off when the planters of
cotton may bjsjcompelled to look chiefly to home
markets for the sale of their staple, and yet a
great many of them oppose protection to this
great and important branch of business of the
United States!! Had the Tariff of 1842 been

it must be cle4r to all practical men of business,
that in a few! years the domestic consumption
of the raw material would reach one million of
hales. That !colton would be now tWo cents
a pound higher, if the Tariff of 18-12 had not
been revokeq there is no question.
There is evidently an interest awakening on
this subject riot altogether discernahle. The
increase of colton factories is bringing the sub

lice that two cotton factories are about to be
established in Louisville, Kentucky, to be work
ed by white laborers. Louisville is becoming
quite a considerable manufacturing city. If the
back countrj'was a little more accessihle by
rail roads, shM would have a greater increase.
Wo hope, hayever, to see not only Louisville,
but all Kentucky, more energetically at work
to increase her industrial pursuits. All parties
in Kentucky jdro disposed to protect and foster
The Georgia manufactures are becoming so
important to her general industry, that to know
the characteij of the State we must know some
thing of her rrianufactures. . We learn from the
Savannah Republican, that the U. S. Govern
ment has made a contract with the.iMiiledge
ville factory ar the delivery of three hundred
thousand yards of cotton osnahurgs. This con
tract was mBe after a comparison, by a Gov.
ernmenuAgej&t in New-York, of the. Milledge
ville with other like fabrics from other manu
factories. 'I-his is not only a high compliment
to the work Ipne in Milledgeville, but affords
' i it
runs 2500 spindles and 52 looms, and consumes
from 800 to 1000 pounds of cotton per day, be
ing about 700 bales a year. Until recently,
the Company confined their attention exclusive
ly to the production of yarns, which yere readi
ly sold at advantageous prices in the, Northern
markets. They! have recently been using what
is termed the self-acting mule, a highly im
proved piece of machinery, which spins thread
of a very superior quality and fineness.
They have also in complete operation all the
machinery necessary for carding, spinning and
weaving wool, and their kerseys are equal to
any we have ever seen. j
At present, the Company employ, about 80
hands, connected with about 25 families. They
find no difficulty m procuring operatives and
generally make their own selections from the
most industrious and worthy applicants : the
wages paid are from six to ten dollars per month
for full hands. To give some idea of the ad
vantages of an establishment like the above in
creating a home market, we have th? following
approximate estimate of a few of the items con
sumed by the operatives and their families, vizi:
'12,000 lbs. flour,
3,600 bushels corn meal,
6,000 lbs. meat,
, 1,200 bushels potatoes,
1,800 lbs. lard,
800 lbs. butter,
' 2,400 lbs. coflee,
' 2,400 lbs. sugar,
Most of the families raise their own vegeta.
hies and we are informed are rapidly gathering
around them the comforts of life. A single case
was related to us by a gentleman connected
with the establishment, which goes far to illus
trate the beneficial effects of a manufactories
upon an important class of our white population
who would otherwise be reduced to penury and
idleness. A widow lady with ten children, re.
sided in the vicinity of the factory. By the
deth of her husband, she had been left per.
fectly destitute of the means of support. She
obtained employment from the Company and
is now receiving for ihe services of six of her
children the sum of ihirty-fourdollars permonth,
besides the rent of a comfortable house ! We
have not a doubt that a judiciously organized
system of manufactories would do more for the
poor white population of the Southern States
than all the alms houses which could be eslab
lished. What is true in the case of this poor
vvidow lady is true to a considerable extent of
many others. The very employment thus ob
tained would secure thousands fromj the conse
quences of vice and infamy, and lead to the
formation ot habits of economy atjd industry
which may result, as has repeatedly been the
case at the north, in comfort, competency and
even wealth. I
In almost every community are found families
similarly situated who are in varipus ways a
tax upon the capital and charity of their more
fortunate neighbors. Is it not infinitely bet
ter to furnish them employment, I and make
them producers instead of being riiere consu
mers ? They dislike to work side by side with
the negroes, and will not do it ; bu( if they can
find a pursuit in which servile labor is not
employed, we venture to say, thefe is not a
class of people on the face of the
RICHMOND AND DANVILLE RAIL-
We had the pleasure this week of
spending an evening with Mr. Jones, the
Assistant Engineer of the Richmond and
Danville Railroad, whd paid a flying visit
to our town, and we must say that we are
gratified at the flattering account he gives
of the eligibility of the routes surveyed.
Mr. Jones, who had formed a favorable
opinion of the route before he surveyed it.
thinks the road can be constructed for a
sum not exceeding his original estimate.
if not for much less. The greatest difli-
culties the Engineers have yet encounter
ed was crossing the ravines and creeks in
the neighborhood of Charlotte C. H., but
even these presented no serious obstacles.
Two routes, and in many places three,
have been surveyed, but the Engineers
can form no idea which will be adopted ;
and for obvious reasons, if they knew,
they ought not to divulge it. We are hap
py to learn there is so much anxiety on
the subject that many freeholders have
expressed a willingness to relinquish all
encan citizens while the rank and file,
of the Regulars are mostly of foreign
birth. They are discontented with the
tyranny of their own native lands, and
come to our shores redolent with liberty
and equality, ready to labor, and fight,
and die for freedom. So sav the Loco

full panoply, bursting from the brain of
Tyranny and stand on our own soil free,

particularly just before an election.
Well, impelled by their love of freedom
and fighting, they join our army, swell
its ranks and are led to the wars by as
bra've and skilful Officers as the world
ever saw. We should suppose that un
der these circumstances, these fresh born
freemen, fighting in freedom's great cause
would be most accomplished and desper

the Volunteers have shamed them so ? As

The G rand Division ana in met on Fri
day inorningj ThJ committees appointed
by reason of the road's passing through
their lands, as an inducement to get it
near them ; and this consideration, we
doubt not, will materially influence the
Directory in fixing the route.
The Engineers are at present in the
neighborhood of Whiteville, in Halifax
county ; and may be expected here about
the. latter part of Maj The first portion
of the Road will probably he ready for
contractors by the middle of July.
We may mention in connection with
this subject, and we take great pleasure
in announcing the fact, that the friends of
the road in Patrick county have at last
commenced the work of subscription to
the stock, of the company. When we last
heard Irom that county, about sixty shares
had been taken, and we have but little
doubt the number will be doubled, if not
quadrupled, in a very short time. This is
a good beginning for Patrick.
In Hajifax, too, the road is gaining
strength. Many in that county were on-
posed to the principle involved in the char
ter of the company ; but this they very
properly regard now as a question no
longer in issue, and therefore they are
willing to lend a helping hand in build
ing up a work in which they are so di
rectly and vitally interested. As an evi
dence of this feeling, it may be mention
must be counted. Well, but the rank and
file of the Army proper, are mostly fore ign-
ers, and as there are many thousands of
such in our Cities, they must be counted
too. Now, we venture to foretell, that
from this time until after our Fall elec
tions, the Regular army and Foreigners
generally, will be pronounced by Loco
Foco authority to be the best and bravest
citizens we have. But after that, the old
story will be repeated, that they cannot
hold a candle to our brave Volunteers.
Interesting Debate in the U. S. Senate.
We copy from the Baltimore Sun the
following sketch of the interesting debate
which took place in the United States
I Senate jmi Thursday :
Mr. Hannegan, chairman of the Com
mittee on Foreign Relations, reported a
bill to enable the President to take tem
porary military occupation of Yucatan
to employ the army and navy of the Uni
ted States for that purpose, and to repress
the incursions of the savages against the
white population of that country to fur
nish the white population with arms, am

meeting was held, in which some of the
most prominent and influential citizens of

adopted inviting Mr. Tunstall to address
the people at their May Court onthesub-
ject of the Railroad. We believe the cit
izens of that county have not been pro
perly understood in regard to their feel
ings on this subject, and we confidently
believe that Halifax will yet give a liber
