WHERE THE SHOE PINCHES.
When a plain, honest, upright and enquiring
man, reads the; malignant and vituperative de- I
nunciiitions oftfie present Administration, which
are thundered; out from day to day, by its
vindictive opponents, if he will think for a mo.
ment, he will at once, perceive tchere ihe shoe
pinclies. He will see that the hopes of the op
position leaders who are the prime instigators
and movers of j all this noise, must be forever
blasted, unless the Administration and its poli
cy be destro;'e(. This is a circumstance that
ought never toj be forgotten by a man, who
wishes to vadelrstand the present prospect of
our affairs in their true light. If he be can
vassing the merits of the Administration with
a well. meaning, unaspiring neighbor, he may
differ from or ajpree with that neighbor, as the
case may be, knowing that their objects are
equally meriterjious, and that they have a sin
gle eye to the 'public welfare. But when ho
meets with these leaders, and hears them
anathematize the Administration and its policy
let himbeware! The real grief of such men
is- not that lh6 Administration and its policy
are of a certain character but thai they exist at
all ! They will tell him, without doubt, of a
more excellent jway to National prosperity and
! renown ; out loere will ne one little circum-
that their crimes were justified by thelorder of ' stance, with which they may not trouble him
sucn as now inis xcay cannot oe so wen
shown to the world, is by themselres and their
co-adjutors ! Tbey will, with solemn phiz and
dripping eye?, grieve and groan over the Hill
ings of those vho occupy the posts to which
they aspire, when, in truth, it is the want of
their posts, and j not their frailties, that so ex
.ceedingly troubles them. Let, therefore, the
honest and welj meaning man, who desires to
ascertain the trje state of affairs, remember to
whom he may be listening, when the Admin
istration and its policy are the topics.
What sort ofj fairness is there, for instance
or, rather, wliat utler shamelessness and ef
frontery are thdre not in the course of the
"Union," and rnany of its sattelites, with re
spect to the recent Diplomatic difficulty with
France ? That! reckless print took M. Pous
sin's side through thick and thin a side, it
seems, that his wn Government now disclaims
and repudiates ;j so that the result is this : The
organ of the ex-government took part with the
rreucu juvt:i iniieui ag.tiuai us own vjovern
ment ; but the jFrench Government not only
took paii against the ex-organ, but against its
own agent, and with the American Govern
ment. The Unon is thus in the condition of a
spy or a traitor, whom the enemy would not
have, but snd Home.
Such opposition does by far more execution
at the breech lHan the muzzle. It will have
the ultimate tendency as it ought to have of
consigning its originators and abetters to that
measure of political infamy, commensurate with
such political turpitude and parly servility.
The funeral of Mr. Albert Jones, onp of the
victims, look place last evening. His head
was perforated by an ounce ball and sixty. six
large shots. i
So intense is the excitement that tne May
or has ordered out a large police forcef to pro-
tect the jail. The wounded are in a fair way
of recovery. j
The following, from le Baltimore jSun, is
the latest despaclh concerning this, bloody and
mysterious affair : ; ' .
St. Louis, Oct. 31 P. M.
A'very high degree of excitement is .existing
in our community, in consequence of the as
sassination, by the French counts, of Mr. AU
hert Jones, and the wounding of Mr. Ijarnum.
Seven thousand persons were congregated a
round the prison last night, remaining; until a
late hour. No serious jderaon9tration,;howev.
er, has been made, though the feeling is very
strong against the offenders. The disposition
to Lynch them was rapidly gaining ground,
and there are apprehensions that it may be put
into execution. Young Barnum, nephew ofihe
propritor of the hotel, who was shot through the
body, is still living, though the hopes of his re
covery are very slim.
and lies between the River and the Pe
tersburg Rail Road. It sounds somewhat
strange to us who have heard the thou
sand jeremiads over the fate of the North
Carolina work, to hear of the Virginia
portion of the same work yielding a profit
of more than six per cent, for such we
take to be the substance of the informa
tion contained below, and such we have
learned from other sources is the fact.
The fact is that this part of the work was
once as much depressed as our own part
of it. But by a vigorous effort on the part
of the Company to put the road in repair
and to pay off its debt they have succeed
ed in retrieving its fortunes. We do not
despair of seeing the Raleigh and Gas
ton Road paying a profit of more than six
percent on the original cost; indeed, if
the Central Road is made, of which we
cannot doubt, there is no doubt of all this
stock appreciating greatly. Petersburg
will come in'for her share of the advan
tages, and well does she merit them.
She is a gallant city in peace or in war,
and we would as soon choose her as an
associate in prosperty or in adversity, for
weal or for woe, as any in our land.

GREENSVILLE AND ROANOKE RAIL
We call attention to the avertisement of the
semi-annual dividend just declared by this Com-
pany, which will be found in another column.
j We have just seen the annual report of ihe Dil
rectors of the Board of Public Works, and from
that, besides this dividend, they have surplus
profits sufficient to pay off the balance of their
debt, which they have directed to be done.
When it is recollected that this road, like all
the rest in the Commonwealth, was finished
and put in operation considerably in debt, and
that it has paid it all off out of the profits alone,
and commenced making dividends which we
ments, and works with a precision and
smoothness but seldom attained. This
Factory is driven by two submerged hori
zontal wheels, estimated at 75 horse pow.
er. They occupy but small space, and
are capable of driving the Mill with very
great speed. These wheels are attract
ing much attention in Lincoln, and are
taking the place of other patents.
Mr. Stowe's Factory is on the same
stream, four miles south of the village,
and a few yards above Mr. Mosteller's
paper mill. Both this, and the paper mill
are in brisk operation. It may afford the
patrons of Mr. Mosteller's establishment
some pleasure to know that he is now en
gaged in making some very important
improvements in his mill, by which, when
completed, he hopes to be able to makea
fairer article of printing and writing pa
per. The improvement is to consist of
separate engines and machine for making
wrapping paper. Heretofore he has bcea
subject to the necessity of using the same
machine for all kinds of paper, which it is
found does not work well.
At the Iron Foundry of Mr. Cbare5
Graham, 10 or 11 miles this side of lin
colnton, we found some beauiitu stoves
of various patterns and sizes. The cast
ing smooth and as perfect is as need be.
At the Foundry of the Messrs. Edwards,
in the town of Lincolnton, (whose adver
tisement may be seen in another column,)
we had the pleasure of seeing a slove
moulded. These gentlemen occupy a high
position in their line of business, the most
difficult jobs being executed by them,
Their work is in very great demand; and
to meet their increasing business they in
tend to enlarge their scale of operations.
We saw, at this establishment a sOperb
