posed is a good one, and will doubt

Bank is being ably advocated.

. There is a man in Washington
city who thinks he has invented a
new system of telegraphing, which
he claims will be much cheaper
.';than -the existing system; It 4s a

any material communication be

AN EXPLANATION. -
The following letter from Col.
Jones- should have appeared with
GoV. 'Vance's - card, but accidentally
was not ready :at the monienUthat
card was published. It ia now pub-
ished in corroboration of Gov.
Vance's denial that he violated any
promise in regard to the matter of
his resignation when elected Senator
in 1870. It puts an end forever to
that poor calumny which but few
men believed from the beginning:
. Charlotte, N: C, Jan. 17, 73.
Gov. Vance. Dear Sir: You de
sire me to state what pledges I made
in vour name to the caucus that
nominated vou Tor the Senate in
1870. In replv, I can onlv say that
these. .pledges were intended by me
to be simply., that you should re
sign whenever -the. caucus that nomi
nated you expressed an opinion that
it was proper lor vou to do so. I
did not intend to convey the idea to
the caucus that you would resign if
your first eflort tor admission was
unsuccessful, nor if your second was,
nor in fact did I refer to any time,
but only assured the caucus that in
case you were elected, it would still
retain control of the matter by re
taining the power of calling for your
resignation. This was all you author
ized me to sav and all that I intend
ed to -say; I have no recollection of
any letter from you being referred to
in that1 caucus, but do 1 rem em ber
that the assurances given by me
were' the result of a conversation had
with you a few minutes before in the
Rotunda of the Capitol.
in regara to your resignation, i uo
not know 'how long I held it; I think
fully two weeks,' probably longer.
Your : instructions 'to . me were to
present it prornptly when your
friends thought it necessary. It was
generally known that I held it and.
upon what instructions I may add,5
that when asked ' by you what
pledges I rnade for you. I answered
vou to the same effect that! have

I niLLSj fs.q.k ON PASSAGE t
On motiori .of -Mr; Cunningham,
the rules were suspended and the bill
iri relation to tbvtiships1 was put up
on its. passage. :
: Mr. Ckiriningham explained the ob
ject of the bill to be to provide for
lappeak from Township Boards of
jknviees x.p xoaR.is-oi . t;ouny vjom-t

The "biil 'proposed to restore the
right of appeal to a judge for rreyiew
and from his decision to theSupreme
Court. Great hardship was com
plained of under the operation-of the
law at present.
. ; The bill passed its second and, third
readings. - v
On motion of Mr. Grahdy, therules
were suspended and the bill to incor
porate the ,lNoi;th Carojijna Construc
tion Com pany , was put upon iUj
passage. . '.
Mr. Grandy urged the passage of
the, bill, which he explained to be to.
facilitate the construction of the New
York, Norfolk & Charleston Railway,
a.charter for which had been granted
by the present Legislature before the
Mr. Dunham moved the bill be in
definitely postponednHe regarded it
as strap gfe that if the object' simply
wrto-facilitate' th e boitding of th is
road, nothing had been said of its
necessity at the time the railroad
charter was granted. The present
bill asked for extraordinary powers
for an untrammelled corporation
powers to enable them to make from
a pin to a railroad. Never" before' had
such powers been asked for or grant
Mr. Grandy thought Mr. Dunham
should have specified his objections,
that the ( bill niiht l-e amended if
necessary. The committee having
the bill in charge had recommended
it, with an amendment which the
friends of the .measure were w illing
to Accepts He called upon Mr. Dun
ham to specify his objections.
Mr. Dunham was opposed to the
bill n toro 'there was not a ieature
in it that could meet his approval.
He wished to know why the projec
tors of the scheme had not incorpo
rated the provisions of this bill in, the
original charter ? This bill -was on
the calendar while the railroad char
ter was before the Senate. The bill
was too general in its character; the
projectors should specifically state
what they want.
Mr. Murphy could not see the ter
rible dangers of the bill. The com
pany merely claimed the right to
build the road in its own way and
the Legislature should not force it
into measures. He professed to
know the objects of the bill. Old
methods. of doing business were pas
sing away. These "Construction
Companies" were a new appliance
used in the Northern States and oven
in our neighboring State, Virginia.
The objection seemed to be more to
the name than otherwise.
Mr. Merrimon said these great
corporations were not alarming
merely to the people of this State but
to the Congress of the United' States,
who were devising means to check
their "growing powTer. He objected
to the bill on account of the 'indefi
nite powers it sougnt powers, ex
tending even to the establishment of
banks, &c. Tpe danger was tnat ere J
long they "would control the - legisla
tion of the State and of the country.
Mr. Bespess reminded Mr. Merri-
'. . , J A 1? Il
mon tnai tne amenument oi june
Committee restricted the company
to the building of the road.
Mr. Merrimon thought the amend
ment did no such thing. The1 pro
posed charter gave unlimited powers
including that of issuing tcertificates
ofsindebtedness and to issue judg-
ments. lie wouia not give nis sup-
ort to the bill till its purposes ' were
efinitely defined. , ? . "
. . Mr. Flemming said the power .of
issuing judgment should be stricken
from the bill. The charter, bowevery
to build the road had been granted
Parties were coming to build the road
and it seemed nothing but right that
they should be permitted to become,
incorporated to protect themselves
and their capital.- It was' proposed
to establish minor corporations un-f
der the grand corporation. " ,
Mr. Stilley. said the committee ha4
reported ' that the powers, sought
could be obtained under the general
incorporation act, ' an d therefore the
State could not be injured or benefit
ted by the motion , to indefinitely
postpone. .The bill "could be amend
ed to meet the views of. its , oppo-
Mr. Dunham did1 not think this
com pany could be incorporated un
der the. general act, ;if he understood
its provisions. He charged bad faith
in its projectors in not advising: the
Senate of their purposes whilst the
railroad charter was under consider
ation.3 - . . ,: ; :
Mr. Gudger, one of the committee
stated that both, bills 5were .. before
them at the same tune and that th ey
had concluded to consider theraiK

it riot having been reported or acted
upon in conjunction with the rail
road bill or having boen introduced
as a-: supplement to that bilL : In pas
sing the railroad bill, the Senate !had
abundance of means to complete' the
work', ;, After the passage Of thatbilly
then comes in the present bill to put
into the hands of the company; the
means of holding the road. He con
sidered it very doubtful whether th
bill would have passed had this con
dition of affairs been understood at
the time. He was not informed at
the time the privilege of building
this road was granted that the com
pany had not the means of complet
ing it! " As to building the road being
the real purpoe of4foe?bill,Mr. Nor
wood, had his doubt3. He asked Sen-
atorsto read the bill and thyDulT
not find a word pointing in tbaxs di
rection: and but for the amendment
of the committee no connection
whatever could be traced between
them. The bill before the Senate
simpl asked power to do anything,
at any time and in any place within
the limits of the State. The amend
ment of the committee had to define
its, object somewhat by providing
that the powers sought should be
"necessary to the construction of the
road." But another section of the
bill gave the company authority to
make, create and issue bonds, mort
gages, judgments, certificates of in
debtedness and all other papers for
what? asked Mr. Norwood; not as
necessary to construct the New York,
Norfolk '& Charleston Railroad,"; but
ag "necessary to its (the company's)
business!" Mr. Norwood stigmatiz
ed the bill as a "huge, mis-shapen,
blind monster." It almost, said he,
enables the company to constitute
them elves a court of justice. They
claimed the power tb issuejudgments
rand'ereri to i&iue certiftcates6f their
own indebtedness. He was opposed
J to any such bill.
He had come to
that pass when he had given urJ. all
hope of North Carolina having any
State pride, and he would not go for
her material prosperity, supporting
any measure to that end.
Mr. Troy called the previous ques
tion. The call was sustained, and the
movement of the committee was
The question then recurred on the
passage of the bill on its second read-

Those who voted in the affirmative

Mr. Miller called up the bill to pro
hibit the sale of intoxicating liquors
within two miles of the town of Shel
by, Cleaveland county. The bill
provides that the question be submit
ted to the qualified voters of the
town for ratification, on the 1st day

An amendment was offered by
Mr. Waring to except Cleveland

bill. This was accepted by Mr. Mills
and the bill passed its several read
ings the vote on the third reading

view to its being re-referred 1 for
