The pang that does my bosom rend;
W'juld she not rather stay the blow
And try to cure if not to mend?
Wiv will she go? hath a plighted vow
.No sacred tie to bind?
Is sincerity then no where now
In lovely womankind!
Why will she go? good bye, my hoiks,

Oh can 1 e'er forget those looks
When blushing she said "yes?"
Yes, she will go in spite of all
That can be said by me;

cl Uiclunond aud Petersburg combined,
131 ay be a mailer of surprise to this con
luon, as it has been to this committee
bul such appears to be the fact. North
Carolina lias had entered at her ports 20001
u, cupping more UKn have entered
the ports of Virginia. The port of Wil
mington owns 3,700 tons more than Pe
tersburg, and 2,000 more than Richmond.
I he exports of North Carolina are re
ported as far below Virginia and South
Carolina and much less than the real
amount; for instance the whole amount for
North Carolina is stated to be $551,795,
while a correct account of the exports from
the port of Wilmington only, shows the
amount there, to be $1,302,490 OS. Also,
the number of vessels reported as entering
the -ports of North Carolina, is staled at
205, while the return of the Harbor Master
at one of our ports of entry, reports 43S.
The difference is readily accounted for',
by the fact that vessels employed coastwise,
frequently arrive and depart from our
pons without entering at the Custom
House, from whence the report of the Sec
retary of the Treasury is derived. This
act will also account for the difference in
the amount of exports a large portion go
ing coast wise not being reported at the
Custom House. It is therefore very pro
bable, that, could the real amount of ex
ports from other parts in North Carolina
be correctly ascertained, the whole amount
would fall but little short of S3,000,000.
From this state of things your committee
onfidently believe that if the citizens of
North Carolina would send their produce
t be exported from ports of her own Slate,
Mislead of those of neighboring Slates, the
amount of exports would be at least equal
! that of Virginia, if not to South Cam-
Your committee cannot close this re
port, without adverting to the mineral
wealth with which the Slate abounds, and
they are happy to state, that in this branch
f the report, they have been aided by a
conference with an intelligent gentleman,
w hoite knowledge of the mining operations,
is inferior to none within our limits.and who
has kindly furnished the committee with
the following information.
In ihe counties of Guilford aud David
son are found: The Harlin mines, owned
by the Deep River mining company, which
has shipped to New York, (Via Fayetle

indications of great profit, they have been
explored to the depth of GO ft. and ihe an
nual product is estimated al 1000 ions.
Besides these mines, there are others situa
ted hi other counties which tend to increase
the resources of the Stale; near some of
ihose mines, coal of the besi quality has
been discovered, and 'tis supposed, to con
siderable extent, which must greatly in
crease the facility for operating in the
nines. Accident has lately brought to
light in Stokes co.,a large deposit of Lime
Stone, in addition to that already known
and which must prove immensely valuable
to the tipper sections of the State besides,

tories already in operation, making no less
a number than 13, working 13,000 spin

Cotton Manufactories in North Caro
lina. Since we became proprietors of the
Carolinian, we have taken some pains to
obtain all the information within our reach,
concerning the Cotton Manufactories in
North Carolina, knowing that it would
prove interesting to our readers. . Our list
is not yet complete, but even as far as it
goes, many of our Citizens will be surpris
ed to see the progress North Carolina has
made in the establishment of Manufacto
ries. It should be recollected that all
these establishments with the exception of
iwc or three, have sprung up within the
past three or four years. The following
is. as far as we can ascertain,

Besides these, there are others now in
ihe progress of building, and will soon be
List of Factories now being built.
1. One at Rockfish, near Fayetteville,
a fine water power, owned by a Company.
2. One near Rockingham, in Richmond
County, water power owned by a Com

owned by a Company.
4. One near Leakesville, on Dan River,
building of stone, owned by John M.
5. One in Surry County, on Hunting
Creek, owned by Mr. Douthet.

low Stokes' Ferry, in Montgomery Coun
ty, owned by Mr. Edward Burrage & Co.
i. Uue on the South ladkin River, 10
miles NV W. of Salisbury, owned by
.Messrs. fisher 6i Lemly.
We understand that several wealthy in
dividuals have purchased the Buckhorn
Shoals below Haywood, in Chatham Coun
ty, with a view of erecting a Cotton Fac
tory but have not learned whether they
have yet commenced operations.

From these facts it will be seen that
North Carolina is making rapid progress
in Cotton Manufacturing; and we think (he
work has just commenced. Her facilities
are so great that the business once started,
must go on. We have water power abun
dant, and cheap. We have the raw mate
rial at hand, and what is remarkable, labor
in the Western Counties of North Caroli
na, is cheaper than in New England.
The effects of the establishments already
in operation begin to be fell throughout the
State; three years ago immense quantities
of Cotton yarns were brought into the Slate
by our Merchants from the North, and sold
to our citizens: now not a hank is brought;
our own establishments not only supply
our wants for home consumption but are
beginning to export the article, Parcels
of North Carolina yarns havealready been
sent to market in the City of New York,
and find a ready sale at fair profits. Even
now, several of our establishments are ma
king preparations to commence the weav
ing of coarse cottons. We may venture
the opinion that in two years, North
Carolina will not only supply the demand
for her own consumption with the coarser
cotton fabrics, but also send them out for
sale into the markets of the world. On
the whole, the Manufacturers of the North
ern States need not much longer count N.
Carolina as one of their markets; they may
rather regard her as a competitor, and one,
who from the great advantages she possess
es, will soon become very formidable.
Salisbury Car. 1
Native Silver in Davidson county. We
have received a beautiful specimen of na
tive silver found in one of the shafts now
being sunk at the lead mine in Davidson
county. We have not learnt the extent of
this new discovery, and cannot, therefore,
say any thing definite concerning it. It is
known, that silver is generally found in
combination with lead, but seldom in su h
quantities as to justify the expense of sepa
ration. The silver, in the present case,
however, is not in combination with the
lead, but in its native virgin state. The lo
cality, where ihe discovery was made, has
not been sufficiently developed to show
what may be expected from ihe vein. We
hope, however, it will prove io be exten
sive and valuable. Salisbury Car.

Atrocious Murder. We are informed
thai a most foul and horrid murder was
committed in Pope county, Arkansas, on
the 4lh June, (nit.) on the body of his
wife, by William Brown, formerly of Ca
barrus count', in this Slate. Brown was
alone with bis family. His wife was driy
en outside of the dwelling, and her husband
presented a gun through ihe crack of the
house at her, wheti his wife exclaimed,
"you are not going to shoot me, are you.?"
and ran to the other side of the house,
when he again presented the instrument of
death, and deliberately shot three large
balls in her breast, w hen she staggered a
few feet and immediately fell and expired.
The children, who were large enough to
do so, ran off and brought in the nearest
neighbors, who found him in the house,
with the dead body lying on a bed, and the
fier.dlihe husband sitting by wholly uncon
cerned! He was immediately arrested
and put in custody. This horrid deed
was perpetrated without any cause, except
what was to be found in the malignity of
the heart of this demon in humanhape.
Mrs. Brown was the only child of George
Ivlults, Esq. of Concord, North Carolina,
upon whom and his wife, this sad catas
trophe brings a sore affliction in their
old age. The deceased had received much
care and attention from her fond parents in
early life, who had this only and favorite
child on whom to center their hopes aud
affections. She was educated at Salem, in
ibis Slate, and shortly after married him,
who had destroyed her peace while living,
and is guilty of her blood when dead. In
stead of finding domestic happiness, to
gain which, she even incurred for a while
the displeasure of her parents in her mar
riage, she became the victim of the most
dreadful hatred and cruelly. But the mi
sery she endured in married life, did not

prevent the exercise of those qualities of
the fiearl that eudeaied her to allher
friends and acquaintances. As a wife and
mother she was exemplary as a friend
and neighbor she was univtisallv respect
ed. She was a member of ihe Presbyte
rian Church About a year since she re
moved to Arkansas with him, who, instead
of being her protector, has become her
murderer, and rendered motherless, and
worse than fatherless, six small children!
Brown was intemperdie! aud this perni
cious vice and the brutal ferocity of his
temper, are the causes of this bloody mur

Scenes in Congress There is an arti
cle in the "Globe" of ihe 16th on the sub
ject of ihe closing scenes in Congress,
which exhibits the conduct of the opposi
tion members in no favorable light. The
editor says, "It is our duty to inform the
public, that the men who, at the late ses
sion, violated the hitherto undefiUd Hall
of National Legislation, and made it the
scenes of blows and bloodshed, belong to
the rauks of Whiggery exclusively. Fnm
the moment that Mr Clay entered the Hall
of the House of Representatives, fliilud
with rage, and in his sonorous voice alter
ed his malediction, "G-d damn you, go
home, where you belong" his egei ioil...w
ers seem to have fell that it was a sort of
order to carry things t?t tt armis, and trust
no longer to augment."
It is melancholy to witness this triumph
f the baser passions, over the principles
of humanity and order. The murder of
Cilley; the brutal attack of Mr. Bell on
Mr. Turney; the threats of Mr. Wise con
cerning his "trusty weapons, and other
indications dT personal outrage, betray a
most deplorable spirit of rufiianism, which
will afford matter of deep reflection to the
The last of these outrages is thus de
scribed: "The closing Sabbath morning
scene in the House, depicted by the cor
respondent of the Journal of Commerce,
and transplanted inlo ihe Richmond Whig,
from which we copy it, was the work of
two of Judge White's messmates and po
litical friends Messrs. Campbell aud Mau
ry. It seems the latter would have been
knocked out of the window of the House
of Representatives, which is on a level
with the floor, if the assailant had not, to
make his blows more effectual, seized his
antagonist by the hair, so as to keep bis
face, into which he was driving his fist
with the force of a sledge hammer, steady
to receive the blows. We are informed
by one who was present, who saw Mr.
Maury (the victim) immediately afur ihe
affair, that it would have been impossible
lo have recognised him by his leaiures,
they were so beaten, blackened, and swol
len. Violent fever ensued, and serious ap
prehensions were entertained for his life.
We believe he is not yet able to leave his
confinement." Raleigh Standard.
