COrTOIf OTAWUFACriTiilNG STEAM
AMD WATE POWER COX-
We have been put in possession of a
few facts in regard to the manufacture
of cotton in North , Carolina which
compare very favorably with the same
class of manufactures at the' North,
and which we believe will convince the
most skeptical capitalist in our country
that Southern mill3 can compete with
Northern mills, on the markets of the
world, in quality of goods, and in the
magnitude of dividends.
For the prpose of illustration we
will refer this morning to the Iiandle
man Mills, owned by the Randleman
Manufacturing Company. This now
valuable property was purchased in
1871 by the company at a cost of about
thirty thousand dollars. The machin
ery in the mill was in bad order, and in
no condition to make money by being
operated. Vie are informed that the
company went in debt for nearly the
whole amount of the purchase money.
For eight years the mill has been oper
ated on sound business principles, and
the result as a business venture or as a
fine financial speculation, will bear the
closest scrutiny. The company now
employ three hundred and fifty hands,
who occupy" over two hundred dwelling
houses of the company, giving tlie
place from one thousand to twelve
hundred inhabitants. The main build
ing is a large substantial brick edifice,
which, with the store, and other build
ings, together with the machinery now
in successful operation, has been de
veloped at a cost of about $22 5,000.00.
Since 1871, all the goods manufactured
have found ready sale, and it is a fact
that most of the time the company
have been behind their orders from
sixty days to four months time. Facts
bear us out in the assertion that the
profit on the goods manufactured have
averaged one hundred dollars per day,
for every working day, in the past eight
years. The mills are running night
and day, producing twelve hundred
yards of plaids per day, at a margin of
profit which should awaken similar en
terprises in almost every portion of
It is true this company use water
power in part to drive their machinery,
but the demand upon their power has
increased so f ast,that they have already
been compelled to add a steam engine
and are now contemplating the pur
chase of another. Little was expected
of the mill when first situated, and it
seems to have been placed where only
a portion of the water power could be
made available, and consequently for
the past year probably one half of the
machinery has been driven bv steam
power. The mills are located sixteen
miles from High Point, and all supplies,
all goods manufactured as well as all
raw material.must be hauled in wagons
over these 16 miles of bad roads. In
addition to this, in getting out to where
they must compete with the markets of
the world, they must contend with a
local tariff on the single railroad which
is accessible. We cannot appreciate
any special advantage therefore asto
the location of this manufactory,
especially as compared with one locat
eu in unanoue, wnere several com
peting lines could bid for freights, in
ward as well as outward. Success
then in this case can only be credited
to steady, persistent hard work, good
management and the low price of labor,
which is obtainable in this section
the latter, we are informed, being at
least thirty-three per cent cheaper
than is paid for the same cla ,s of labor
at the North
We believe we could promise similar,
if not better iesults, for a well managed
cotton factory in Charlotte, but
iieic qlcuiu power would neces
sarily be used exclusively and
lu iauii una comparison tnat we
are prepared to offer some reflections
It is generally believed here that water
power is an absolute desideratum to
successful cotton manufacture. Let us
look into the facts: Take any water
power that will give a steady yearly
power ot lrom80to 100 horse power,
ana tne privileges, dams, flumes, water-
wheels, Ssc, if located anywhere within
reach of a railroad, will cost from $35,
000 to 850,000. The average cost of
keeping the dam, flumes, wheels, &c, in
repair will cost, say 2 per cent., one year
with another ; add this to the interest
on, say $45,000, at 6 per cent., and we
have an annual cost of, say $3,600, for
power alone. Now let us see the 6ther
the cost of bagging and ties.
essential point for steam is the ability
of the steam mill, with the improved
steam engines of the present day, to
produce a bettergrade of goods, thus
enhancing their value on. the market,
by having a steady, regular speed, which
no water power can give.
We believe these calculations may be
relied on, and if any one will invest
gate the matter he will find that the
picture is not unduly colored.
A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE.
A correspondent from Morganton,
who desires to get in a good word for
his favorite candidate for the presiden
cy, sends us the following with the re
quest that we publish what he has to
say. The following is his letter:
Mr. Bavard could get every Southern
electoral vote and no more. If the
Democrats want to make sure of a solid
North, let them nominate Thomas F.
Bayard, or Jefferson Davis ; either will
do; but if they desire to elect their can
didate, Horatio Seymour is the man.
Mr. Bavard would make a very excel
lent president, and so would Zebulon B.
Vance, but neither of them can be
In one respect we agree with our cor
respondent, in that Mr. Bayard will not
do as the democratic nominee for pres
ident. He is a Southern man, and
while he always remained loyal to the
Union, his Southern sentiments are
known and respected throughout the
South, and hated .throughout the North.
Aside from the question of secession-
which was never settled until the day
which witnessed the surrender at Ap
pomattox, and which we now regard as
settled forever, the people of the North
will yet learn, that the principles ot
States' rights and local home govern
ment, must- be the palladium of the
peopJe'3 rights under the Federal gov
ernment, but the time has not yet come.
It will take a few more railroad
strikes, and a given number of panics;
another instalment or two, of Credit
Mobilierism, Belknapism, aud a few
more terms of Grantism, to bring them
to their senses, but unless there is a
,nge in the administration of this
country, all these events are in the
womb of the not very far distant fu
We do not regard Horatio Seymour
as even a probable candidate, because
he has said repeatedly that he wouid
not be, and because he is sixty-eight
years of age, and must have lost much
of the vigor of life, actually necessary
to occupy the white house, but we have
faith in the Democracy of the nation
with all its mistakes, and believe that
when the time comes we will be able to
nominate just such a person as will
meet the expectations of the people
and who, when elected, will have the
honesty as well as the capacity to ad
minister the affairs of the government
in a manner which will be creditable
both to him and the people.

prove that, casting his knife upon the
floor by Colorow expressed his vote for
war, but the fact of the other Indians
retaining their knives overpowered his
vote. It was noticed that as soon as it
was perceived that no other Indians
wished to follow the example of Colo
row, two Utes arose from their seats in
the council room and went out, going
away talking to Indians outside who
immediately mounted their horses and
rode away. They had evidently been
waiting for a signal which would call
them to arms, and at no time were any
of them distant a hundred feet from
the council room. Every Ute of the
agency carried with him more arms
than any two soldiers of the regular
army. Yesterday brought out also the
fact that Ouray's respect for the Presi

made that assertion, and Mr. Doron
