AdieuJIand waving his hand towards me, he passed ADVERTISING. j The New York Tribune, in a labored article on a reform in trade, gives the'fol owing hints, in regard to the tern of ad vertising: . We have remarked that extensive ad vertising is one of the means by which the reform in trade is to be accomplished. The two classes, buyers and sellers, have a common interest in finding each other;" that is to say, it is for the interest of him who can supply a certain want cheapest; to have every buyer aware of the fact; and it is fca the interest of the buyer no less. An expenditure of fifty thousand dollars may not be too much, one of five thousand may be too little for that purpose. If, for example, somebody has discovered as we see it stated in a Southern paper, ai substance, or chemical j compound which will dispense with the labor now required in washing clothes, or the half of it, at a very small cost, the owner of this patent may spend fifty thousand dollars a year in advertising it, and then not spend The Position of Nci&ern. The New- bimsell us very sorry but as they were bernian of the 2nd instant, we are clad to see, has a spirited article on the sub ject of internal improvements. It lays it down as certain, whether the charter of the North Carolina Railroad, in its pre sent shane. be accented or not. that a cpn- tral road, connecting the East and West, rtUIICm,,ons oi me nesi ieenngson Dom will be built. It argues Somewhat against s,dt;s !ne chief and his party returned to the practicability of a! permanent and j the,r bomps and the General and suit sufficient improvement of the Neuse, and wending their way back to this placed in favor of a continuation of the Road di- committed by a small party of unauthor ized persons, who were immediately ta ken into custody, and would be delivered up, he did not think the entire nation should ie held responsible for their acts. Thus ttrminated the conference, iwith riect to Newbern ; and calls upon the citi zens of that place to arouse themselves to action, and assist in pushing forward the enterprise. Connect, (says the wri ter.) the East with the West by a contin uous route of Rail Read jfrom Charlotte to rewbern, by way; of Salisbury and Ra leigh, and then opeh a ship channel, say f)rom some point up on Adam's Creek to Beaufort, and Newbern would be made." These are exactly our sentiments what v?e have repeatedly in our paper and else- I where, urged in behalf of Newbern a enough.

Whoever can supply this city cheap est, with almost any article which will meet a general want hitherto more expen sively met, cannot advertise too much if he knows how to advertise at all. And yet many a dealer in our city pays a thousand dollars more for an eligibly lo cated store than he need pay in a less frequented street, and does not pay a hun dred dollars a year for advertising 1 He willingly pays a thousand dollars, merely to let some ten thousand people know that be has certain articles to sej), but grudges five hundred dollars to give the same knowledge to millions." j i ' In reference to this subject the Boston Times says: : "If you want to obtain a situation; if you want to obtain help; if you want to hire or let a house ; if you want to obtain boarders ; if you want to recover anything lost or stolen ; if you want to sell your goods, wares, and merchandise ; finally, if you want to get business, and make mon ey, advertise, advertise." . Will the buisness men of Wilmington iake the hint ? Many of them have alrea dy profited by advertising, yet there is a larger number who have not yet become reconciled to the advantages derived from advertising. Now is the time to com mence. If a proper effort is made, the approaching season will be renowned for its activity in Wilmington, and we hold ourselves ready and willing to afford the public every facility in our power to ac commodate them.

O; if the large capital of the low country could be enlisted and united with the labor and energy of the West in a thorough scheme of State im provement, (of which the Central Road would be the very Spinal marrow.) how soon would the people of North Carolina become "one and indivisible" in interest, and feeling, and hope, and prosperity ! -1 he JNewbernian says.iwhether the pre sent charter be accepted or not, that a ceritral road, connecting the East and West, will be built. Do not deceive your self, dear sir ! We confess that failure in the present scheme will be destruction to our hopes. We fear there will ever here after be found too many adverse interests, in the East and the West; to permit a cbarter embodying so many elements of success. j iothis is the charter, and now is the time ; let us strike while the iron is hot.

From the New Orleans Delta. INTERESTING FROjM FLORIDA. Fort Brooke (Tampa Bay) Fla., Sept. 21. ! Dear Delta On the' 15th instant Gen eral Twiggs embarked oi board the stea mer Colonel Clay, for Charlotte s Harbor, the scene of the depredations of the Indi ans for the purpose of holding a "talk"' with the principal chiefs of the Seminole?, as was alluded to iji a previous letter. The General was accompanied by Dr. Randall, Maj. McCall, Asst. Adjt. Gene ral; Capt. Cassey Commissary Department and tiieut. Gibbon, with Capt. Rains com pany of 4th Artillery as a military guard and escort. j The steamer reached Iher destination on the 17th, and anchored near an old trading house on the east! side of the Bay, a few miles from its mouth. Here the head chief, Billy Bow Legs, accompanied with, the acting chief of the Micasookies and several warriors,, wept on board the steamer, and held a "talk" with General Twiggs. j The chief is described as being a fine PRESIDENT TAYLOR. The following passage we extract from a speech 'of Josiali Quincy, Jr., at the late Whig Convention of Massachusetts. We regret, with the distinguished speaker, that it was not in the power of President Taylor to have min Sled in person with the intelligent yeomanry of the Bay State. He is a roan of the fashion and 'he temper to have won among lhem an in stant, an electric popularity, that would have thrilled through their ranks from the Capes to Berkshire, and expelled all the lingering doubts and prejudices that have been so assiduously disseminated in a section where his rare vir tues and noble qualities might well look for the most genial sysmpathy and the most just appreciation. If the people of Massachusetts could see General Taylor as Mr. Quincy saw him; converse with him; know, by personal experience, his gentleness, his kindness, his unassuming spirit, his modesty, his good sense, his good judgement there would not be op position enough left in the State to make a show of hands necessary to indicate the state of opin ion. He would carry everv thinif bv acclama- lion. Republic, " It was my good fortune (said Mr. Quincy) to be at Washington for three or four weeks," about the beginning of last March, and it was my exceeding good fortune to be under the roof with one who was at least called General Tay lor. Sir, I cannot help regretting that his health prevented his having an opportunity of showing himself to the yeomanry and citizens of Massachusetts. I rpgret that they could not sec President Taylor as he appears to all about him. " We are very apt, gentlemen, to judge by what we have seen of -the militia. I remem ber, sir, that I was onco aid lo bis excellency Governor Lincoln, and we thought then that the military had more fuss than feathers, I be lieve. " As regards General Taylor, he is exactly what his soldiers' call him Hough and Ready. He looks no more like one ot those officers whom you will see, on an inspection day, rid. ing about on horseback, with long plumes, than he does like a Methodist minister. I confess. sir, I could not help looking at him with aston ishment as I saw him sitting upon his sofa, in his parlor, a quiet modest-looking man ; and I could not help thinking to myself, is that the fellow that sat sideways on Old Whitey at the battle of Buena Vista T " We are apt to look upon the title Rough and Ready' as one which was got up for the occasion. We are apt to imagine that a com mittee has been appointed lo draught resolu tions, and to present to the public such a name as will be taking. But that is not the case with a name like this. The highest glory of ancient knighthood was when the soldier was knighted by his sovereign on the field of bat tle. The highest title of a military man in a republic is when bis soldiers give a name that shall signify at once their confidence in bim and their appreciation of bis modesty. " He is called Rough and Ready' because in every rough situation he was ready; be cause he was found sleeping side by side with the common soldiery, with a tent or without a lent ; because he was found in the forefront of the battle, marked only by his venerable and his simple appearance. " Whigs of Massachusetts, 'ou owe a great deal to (Jen. Taylor. You have placed him in a situation of irreat responsibility. You have THEELECTIOrriNMARYLANDr i ' Ve adverted yesterday to the immense rejoicing in the Locofoco camp, ojij ac- ' count of their victory in Maryland ;. a vie- i tory achieved; without, the addition j of a i2 single partizan to ihcir own list, solely by . :Si the dereliction of the-AVhigs ! Wc risked- then, and we ask now, what does the? par- , ty propose to do, provided itMbtaih an . ; overwhelming majority in the House of Representatives? Does it intend to tbwartr every proposed measure,! no rhatter hov7 useful; to reject every scheme fo3P the pabl.eJ good, no matter how plausible ;'i to declare open war against every thing! that blayi .emanate from President Taylor, jno mat-i ter how consistent even with its own pre-T, viously expressed views upon tbesaroe subject? Docs it mean to imitate the foreign organ, and expressing at the cry outset, its determination to oppose the Ad ministration (right or wrong) to the bit ter end," act in strict conformity to this declaration throughout? Does it mean to take no account of any thing good that the Administration may do ? Is it pent only on putting it down, let its acts be what it may, and let the consequences to the country be what Actfmay ? Then we.' say, if this be so, never did any party in. this country undertake a task so Hercu lean, so little likrlyjo result in any bene fit to the country, so certain to crush! all those who are engaged in it. The people may be deceived for a while. They may mistake loud professions for real zeal in their cause. They may be led to tnink that he who talks the most of his country' is the readiest to sacrifice himself upon her altar. But in the cndr they always see things exactly as they are, and never fail to make the proper distinction! be tween faction and patriotism. 1 It is very apparent that nothing which Gen. Taylor can do, will ever satisfyl the party, which banded together for the bur pose of securing the spoils, knows no oth er motive. He cannot rebuke the inso lence of a Foreign Minister, an insolence which if it had been submiltted to, would have called down the unqualified denun ciation of the whole Locofoco press, with out hearing a hue and cry such as the Very press of the country which the Minister represents, would not have raised. Ho cannot latte steps 10 carry into etiecc one of the plainest provisions' of the law, that wntcn pronipits me maKing war upon a friendly power, without receiving the un qualified censure of these pretendeUj dis ciples of Jefferson of the man, who upon a mere suspicion that Aaron liurr intend ed to invade the territory of a friendly power, ordered his arrest, and had) bun tried for his life. He cannot take steps to prevent a ship of war from being trans ferred to a despot, to be used against (a feeble nation, with whom we have al ways preserved the most friendly relations without exciting a howl of rage from one end of the Continent to the other, through all the Democratic press. What will sat isfy such people? Nothing! Nothing 1 but a return to power, and the re-possession of the spoils. " If the Arch Angej Ga briel were President, he would notj suit them, unless they were allowed the privi lege of handling these, j If such be the disposition of the press, what are we to expect from a Congress composed of a majority of loco-foe os ?- Nothing of course but faction unadul terated, unqualified faction. Itis some&at isfaction to know, that the intelligence of the people will soon sift the chaff from the wheat will soon distinguish the truepat riot, from the rabid factionist will award to faction precisely the reward to which it is entitled, in the strictest spirit of im partial justice, j In the mean time upon the loco foco majority, will devolve the responsibility of defeating or sustaining the Wilmot Proviso, as applied to California ; and as there cannot be a doubt, judging.fromlthe Oregon case, of the manner in which this will be done, we congratulate the people of Maryland and North Carolina upon the vast wisdom by which their course in 'the late elections was directed.
