one mile from the Market House, which

natural, because its head ard a majority of the

as charged by the Era, that the Northern
Whigs are now more favorable to the South
than the Northern Democrats!, and they will re
main so just as long as this administration re.

CENTRAL RAIL ROAD.
The subjoined extract of a letter, writ
ten to a gentleman in this Town, will be
found highly encouraging to the friends of
the Central Rail Road. The author, it is
due hirri to sa has been uniformly of the
opinion,since his first visit to this part of
the country, that the Central Rail Road is
bound to succeed ; and few have done
more than he to enlighten the public mind
orr the subject Jof its advantages, and to
encourage men of means to take hold of
the work with ;unwavcring confidence of
the happiest results.
His scheme j for the extension of the
Road to the Tennessee line, is magnifi
cent, and we feel confident that it will
sooner or laterlbe accomplished. When
the Roa(j shalll be finished to this point,
like a plant, i will send out its main
branch n the (direction whence greatest
nourishment is' to be derived; and the
vallies bf the iCatawba, French Broad,
and the rich plains of Tennessee is the
natural bourse ;for it to take ; and there it
will go. Theni shall North Carolina have
a back bone to support her fair proportions;
and her children vi 1 1 toss up their caps
with joV see their old mother drop her mis
erable crutches, and stands erect, firm
and independent, as do her sisters.
: ASHEVILLE, OCTOBER 16, 1849.
Dear Sir : A letter now before me from one of the
Northern Contractors, to whom I wrote when in Salis
bury, referring to thjs project for building the Central
Rail Road, holds the followingTanguage :
" Send me the charter, and I will immediately pro
ceed to raise the necessary men and funds. Your
scheme cannot fail to be a productive one."
Another writes that he likes the project well, and
wishes to know what steps he shall take in the matter.
Both of these men are fully able to take the whole sub
scription list themselves, so that I now consider the
Central Rail Road as safe.
We must not stophere. The Road must be contin
ued from Salisbury West to the Tennessee line the dif
ficulties iu ihe way of this project, are nothing like as
great as thofeTrom Salisbury to Raleigh. The valleys
of the French Broad and Catawba offering the easiest
of plateaus for such constructions.
Three millions more will carry the Road to Tennes
see, and I opeak adviledly when I say that with the same
facilities now given by the State in the Central Rail
Road Charter, I wilL; undertake to have a million raised
on the extension in six months. Keep talking of this
matter, and keep the people talking of it, and it will be
done. Very truly. &c.

DEAF MUTES EXHIBITION.
Mr. Cook, th0 Principal of the North
Carolina Institution for the instruction of
Deaf Mutes, accompanied by four of bis
! PUP,I ma
g a tour through Western
Carol inn'; gave an Exhibition in the Pres
by terian Church; here, on Monday evening
last. A very latge portion of our eilizens
availed themselves of this opportunity to
witness tbe wonders which science and
perseverance have achieved for this un
fortunate class of our fellow beings. The
pupils here on this occasion, who were
males and females, two of each, have
1 been receiving instruction at this institu-
tion, from one yar to eighteen months, as
well as we understood Mr. Cook ; and it
is truly most astonishing what progress
they have madeiin learning. They could
converse with their teacher, and with
each other, with; rapidity and ease, on al
most anysubject by the "sign language;"
and when required would quickly, and
with remarkably accuracy translate and
write down upn the black board, any
sentence which he would give them.
We have never had an exhibition which
so justly attracted the attention of the
good people of jour Town ; and we feel
convinced that i the sacrifice which Mr.
Cook is making of his own ease and
means, to show ko the people of the State
the good the Institution at Raleigh is con
ferring upon thtj Deaf Mute, will not go
unrewarded. And if its good fruits call
forth the applause of the people general
ly, how great must be the gratitude and
pleasure of those parents whose children,
shut up in darkness by the loss of hearing
and speech, havje been restored to them
with highly cultivated intellects, and a
language even: more impressive than
i ui uo.
DC73 Those Cabarrus friends of ours who
so punctually answered our call last week,
for a few dimes; to grease the joints of tbe
Press, will please accept our thanks.
There are but j few communities which
cither more liberally patronize, or punc
tually pay the printer than that of Cabar
rus ; and when jwe say this we mean to
express a compliment which editors in
the South can generally appreciate.
King Ferdinand used to say that he al
ways distinguished a wise man from a
fool by the waylhe governed his family,
his moderation in anger, and his writing
a letter without; useless repetitions.
I: A large portiolrr of the people of the
Northern States, are ever ready to pro
claim against the institution fof Slavery,
and never lose an occasion for denounc
ing in the bitterest terms the people of
the South as cruel tyrants ; and they are,
in these latter days, even carrying their
opposition to the extent of. denying all
christian fellowship with slave-holders
and, rising above the teachings of God
himself, assert that to be wrong which
He has sanctioned. Such .is their con
duct on this, subject, that one would be
led to suppose, that in all the relations of
life, touching civil and religious liberty,
to say nothing of mercy, amiableness,
good will and love, that they were as ci
ties set upon hills ; and in their inter-
.1 . 1 t it
course witn tne uiacK man especially,
they would exhibit in the greatest perfec
tion these characteristics. But how
strangely different, are the facts. There
is scarcely a month that passes that the
conduct of these people do not give the
lie to all their implied professions. The
negro in the Northern cities, is often the
subject of oppression and gross wrong ;
and so far from their exciting the sym-
nathies of these croakers, and eliciting in
rf r 1iVinlf nnv nprtilinr rpsnert. f'prnpnt
.w.. - j 1 1 ' I
when assailed by Southerners) they are
spurned from society, and often shame
fully mal treated by furious mobs. Wit
ness, as a recent instance, the late outra
geous mobs which assailed the colored
people of St. Mary's street, Philadelphia;
where men, women and children, were
seen flying from their fired houses in ex
treme terror, chased by gangs who pelted
them with brickbats, and fired after them
with guns and pistols, of whom many
wTere seriously wounded and some killed
outright. Witness many similar acts in
the same goodly city, within some few
years passed ; jind the refusal of the peo
pie of Ohio even to allow John Ran
dolph's freed slaves to settle on land in
that State which had been previously
bought and paid for, for their use. Shame,
shame, on our pure, good-hearted, liberty
loving friends of the North ! Until they
behave, better than this, all their fine
preaching to us is utterly lost. Nay, they
must mend their manners, or we shall
have to insist that they come South and
sit and listen, whilst we teach. Their
precepts abroad and examples at home
are like the poles. Their hatred of slave
holders, and abhorrence of the negro in
their midst, kiss each other. The fair la
dy abolitionist of Massachusetts throws
her beautiful arms around tbe sable kinky
head of the South, whilst she refuses to
sit at the table of Christ with the humane
master of that slave ; and yet strange to
say she will have no communion with the
negro at her door. Oh it is beautiful !
the very perfection of fanaticism.
We bad the pleasure of meeting many
of OUr old friends, and the good Citizens
of Cabarrus last week, at their Court.
Tuesday is the great day of the weekdu
ring the sittings of Court in Cabarrus. On
that day, large numbers of people assem
ble there, both of that and the surround
