THE PROPOSED OT3$m$I;SEttE,&rttJuft
sembly by Mr. Br&ytnpt rMecklenburg;
to authorize the exterisroir of the Hal-
eigh & Augusta Air LinKailroad to
Charlotte, and append it herewith. It
is aery stiori and a very innocent look
ing little bill, to be sure, to be the occa
sion of so much disturbance. It is en
titled "a bill to be entitled 'an act to ex-j
tend the Raleigh and Augusta Air-Line
Railroad from any point on its line to
any point in or near the, city, of4, Char
lotte "dnd reads as follows: ; " !
Section 1. The General Assembly of
North Carolina do enact, That the Ral
eigh and Augusta Air-Line Railroad
Company shall have the right to extend
its road from any point in or near the
city of Charlotte ; to adopt such gauge
as its directors may deem i advisable,
and to build such branch roads there-
from as may be desired by it Said
company shall also have the' right $0
contract with any other railroad cor
poration for the use or lease of its road
or any part thereof, and thereafter ,.Jo
use the same in such manner as may be
prescribed in such contract
Sec. 2. This act shall be in force from
and after its ratification.
The opposition to this bill, and the!
- only opposition which it has encounter-
ed or is likely to encounter, comes from
Wilmington and its friends and from
the. Carolina i:Central, Railrodr. It is
claimed that this proposed, line will di
vert business from Wilmington and
carry it to Norfolk and Portsmouth!
This is the whole head, front and bowels
of the opposition, which is entirely and
confessedly selfish. Wilmington claims
the right to control the shipping of the
products of Western North Carolina
on what ground ? Not that she is able
to offer the facilities which other ports
afford, but because she is a North Caro
lina city. She says, practically, "we can
not compete with. Norfolk; and Ports
mouth when on .the ..ame .footing
with .them, notwithstanding we -are
nearer to Charlotte than' these cities;
it is true the people of Charlotte and if
- the west can get their products and
their goods through with more expedi
tion byway of Norfolk than:by Wil
mington, but stilly this, is a North Caro
lina ity and the balance of the State
should be made to pay tribute to it Let
us, therefore, go up to Raleigh and use
our influence with the Legislature to
funnel the State so that trade can find
no other shipping and entry port and
what boots it if the balance of the State
does languish so long as we expand?"
They may put the case differently to
the Legislature but this is jusjj, what it
amounts to. The General Assembly is
asked to deprive a great section of privi
leges and advantages which are offered
it without money and without price,
simply because the business of this sec
tion belongs to Wilmington, and to give
it a living chance to communicate, with
the markets of the world is an infringe
ment upon chartered rights.
" Let us suppose the Raleigh & Augusta
Air-Line Railroad building a line from
Hamlet or from, Sanford,. through
Moore, Stanly and Cabarrus: This
would open up a vast area of country,
rich in agriculture and' in resources of
all kinds a country which is now shut
up ivitnlff Itself rBut thlsBOTintrrnrast
remain in its natural state, cut off from
the busy world, because to open it up
would be to inj ure Wilmington ! 'This
i3 the whole sum and substance ot the
argument. ? .
. . But it is pot in behalFof the counties
named, nor yet in behaif of Charlotte
alone, that we urge the granting f this
charter. It is frue.that it opens a new
country and gives' to' Charlotte another
competing line, thus enabling her busi
nessmen to pay higher prices for, cot
ton and all other products hut jit jjives
competition to all the western section.
Freights from the. line f the Atlanta
Chuarlottekfr-Line wul'thus have the
choice of one more route from Char
lotte, while freights from the line of the
Western 'North Carolina Railroad will
have the choice of three routes instead
of two as, now either; by way ofthe
Richmond . & Danville Railroad . from
Salisbury, of by tiie Cafblma Centrafor
the new line from Charlotte. ;
We are astounded r.by the position
taken upon this' question by some of
our Wilmingtpn friends. f They sem to"
have entirely. lost sight bf the remain--der
of the State. The idea of asking a
Legislature to refuse' a 'railroad com
pany the right to extend its line through
" ricff country; with iU&wi iai
- not only selfish and 'unpatriotic' in the;
i extreme, but . it. is: monstrous; 0 Their
position upon this question cannptbe
defended upon grounds of philanthropy
or business principles. crThey are play
ing the part of the dog in the manger.
They cannotn offer s use the;. Advantages

The general result of the congress
man s figuring is that, throughout the
Sduthy relative 'J population of Wjhites
and DiacKS everywnere considered,
there are more whites than blacks
who cannot read, andmore blacks than
whites . who cannot write. ; Under i the
sub-caption of "several sketches of
education ( in different States," the
colored congressman is pleasea to gay:
North Carolina has lost prestige een
erally educati9nally, the . Legislature
last winter having removed the clerical
force bf the superintendent and reduced
his salary, thus leaving the office with
little capacity for boperul and vigorou:?
The somewhat critical representative
neglected, to gay 'tEat it inight have
been mucn better f oty the educational
interests of both races m this State if
members of his party had not stolen
the school fund just after the war.
But to return to the several conclu
sions ol the gentleman upon the sub
ject of the illiteracy prevalent in the
South, we quote from the Washington
correspondents the Baltimore Sun in
saying that if Jus figure, can Jae relied
upon they have more than the colored
people" "would perhaps like' to have
demonstrated." The correspondent
The Democrats are calling attention
to the fact that if Cain's statistics are
reliable, which they deny, they show
such raoid advance in education on thA
part of ihfe" blacks as to demonstrate tne
following propositions J'irst, that the
Democracy are placing no obstacles in
the way of the education of the colored
people; second, that it is no credit' to
the colored race, with such an advance
in j,, .education and with viae .. Jarge
numerical majority thev have in manV
section, that they should permit them
selves to be bulldozed.
These are hits very' palpable hits,
and' the colored representative has
made out, according to his own show
ing, but a poor case against the South
ern whites after all.
