We continue to note the onward progress of industry in. the sunny South. The planters of cotton 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!!

We vill now use more than four hun dre'd and fifty thousand. Whh fair protection, 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 j 1 DO ject home to jthe minds of the people. We no 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 domestic manufactures. 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 per year. : 1 ' i it ii i t 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 1 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, 1,200 poultry, ' 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 ; 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- ROAD. 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 t c: 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 Focos. They come to America, Freemen. double distilled, highly concentrated, in full panoply, bursting from the brain of Tyranny and stand on our own soil free, emancipated, disenthralled by the irresis tible genius &c. So say the Loco Focos 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 ate warriors. How does it happen that the Volunteers have shamed them so ?

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. Raleigh Register, YUCATAN. 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 munition, &c, to repel the attacks of the i.j: 1 . .1 : .1. : r edthat at April Court (Monday last) a !

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 al subscription to this great Work of de liberance to the Roatroke country. On the the whole, we may congratulate the friends of the work on its present auspi cious prospects.

They might not only employ their capital profi tably, but Would make valuable citizens out of a class of people who are now t6o often dri ven by their very necessities to tamper with and corrupt our slave population. - VOLUNTEERS VS.

The bill was twice' read, and Mr. Han negan moved that it he made the special order for to-morrow. Mr. Calhoun thought the day named too earl)', more time should be given for reflection.
