' The Western Railroad, t
The President and . Directors of the "Western
Railroad have been negotiating for some time
with-a northern house on matters connected
wun .ine . itoaa. Tne urst iruits or this ne-
gotiation are a transfer by Smith & Colby of
their stock, to trustees, to be by them conveyed
- to the Company whenever the sum of $350000
' y shall have been subscribed (including the sub-
scription of $03,000 already made) to the capi-
' tal stock of the Company by the people of this
Vicinity. -The President and Directors have
a made an arrangement which is ;to form the basis
of a contract for the building of the Rond. By
- this arrangement a northern house of Engineers
... are to take, the entire contract for building the
Road from Fayetteville to the Coal Mines at
'- the estimates.Tof the Compauy's , Engineers.
This contract includes the building of a depot
. and machine shop in Fayetteville, and a depot
.. at theRjverf depotsjalong the toad, as well as
'$110,000 worth of running stock for the Road.
The iron is to weigh60 lbs. to the linear yard,

- Dy cnairs. v iuc graue 01 ine xvoau is not. 10 ex

To do all this, jthe necessary amount of mo
ney is to be raised as follows: $350,000 arc to
be subscribed by the friends of the Road, and
$150,000 arc to be taken by the contractors.
The contractors are to receive $200,000 in the
bonds of the Company, bearing 7 per cent, in
terest, and payable in 1875. This makes $700,
000, lacking less than $200,000 of furnishing
the amount necessary to pay the contractors
according to the estimates of the Company's
Engineers. This amount is to be raised by
issuing bonds of which the contractors are to
have the refusal. These constitute the most
important items in the contract which we under
stand is to be submitted at an early day by the
President and Directors of the Company to a
General Meeting of Stockholders.
JK2f We learn from tire contractor, Mr M.
McKinnon, that he will commence running the
line of tri-weekly post--hacks on the Fayetteville
and Western Plank Road, between Fayetteville
and Salem, this evening. The days of arrival
and departure have not yet been definitely fixed.
A Cautious Resolutiox. At a recent mcet
ing of the whigs of Montgomery county to ap
point delegates to their State Convention, the
following resolution wa; passed:
Resolved, That we have increased confidence
in the principles generally held by the whig
A circumspect set of whigs, they of Mont
gomery. They don't go the entire figure, but
only in a ge ntral way. We snpjosc each one
makes such reservations as suits his views best.
Well, this is a very good and honest way of
doing business, and it admonishes whig journals
to be a little cautious how they attempt to
bamboozle the people.
IQT On the 2d inst., there was a meeting at
Tammany .".Hall, 'New. '.York, of the democratic
"Soft Shell" Committee to take into considera
tion the Nebraska question. Resolutions were
passed by a large majority affirming, 1st. The
finality of the Compromise Measures of 1850 as
a settlement of the sla very agitation. 2d. The
right of the people of the territory to determine
the question of slavery for themselves. This is
an endorsement of Mr Douglass' proviso to the
Nebraska and Kansas Bill, repealing the Mis
souri Compromise. Yet these men are styled
free-soilers, and Gen. Pierce is on that account
blamed for placing some of their party in office !
Large Drove of Turkeys. We learn from
the Salem Press of the 4th thata drove of more
than sixteen hundred Turkeys passed that place
on the 3d inst. They were en route for Charles
ton, S. C, and came from Smith county, Va.
The drove travels about seven miles- per day,
and eats up seven bushels of corn in the same
space of time. The corn is strewed along the
road, and "the Turkeys in that way toled along.
- We should like rights well to sec this "Turkish
host" (for so the Press facetiously styles it)
marshalled somewhere in the precincts of our
town. We would not, however, vouch for the
personal safety of the regiment. We think it
would be difficult to restrain the violence of the
masses, particularly if it were ascertained that
the Omar Pacha at the head of it could be
bought over. -Caunot the Pacha of sixteen
hundred tails give us a call ?
Dedini, the Pope's Nuucio, whose pres
ence in different cities in the North has been
the signal for popular outbreaks, left New York
on Saturday last for Europe. His departure
was managed so adroitly that the mob did not
get wind of his movements, and he got off with
out any disturbance.

The first' half c f the nineteenth century was
one of the most . s tirring periods in the history
of the world, and ft is highly probable that the
latter half will witness scenes and events of equal
importance! r- Never, before the wars of NafK)
Icon, had the wo rid beheld such a conflict of
mighty powers, such a battling of the hosts of
empires, such " consummate military skill, such
resources and su h energy brought to bear in
the dreadful work of war. Then the combined
powers of EurofM ; were arrayed on one side,
whilst France sto d almost solitary and alone
on the other. N w, however, France finds her
self s'd'i by side ith England, preparing to re
sist the agsrressioi of that mighty leviathan of
the North which seeks to lave its sides in the
Arctic seas: on the one hand, and in the Medi
terranean on the other, Russia has long ar
dently desired to ecome a great naval power.
Her situation, am want of good ports, has pre
vented the accomplishment ;f this cherished ob
ject. ; Casting around her .for-, the means of sup
plying this deficie icy, her greedy . eye has fas
tened upon the ' r Iendid harbor of Constanti
noplc. . Her poljcy has for along time been
tending towards tlie acquisition of this impor
tant point, j It was the cherished object of the
Emperor Alexander, the brother and immediate
predecessor of thel present Czar. Had, Napo
leofi "Bonaparte' f tllen-iJwith nis viewi trihis1
particular, Russia would not have gone over
to England, and the alliance ratified at Tilsit
between France and Russia would not have been
broken. Napolecn well knew that if the Czar
was permitted to a!bsorb Turkey, Russia would
become a great naval power, and soon acquire
such an overwhelming preponderance in Euro
pean affairs, as utterly to abrogate everything
like a balance of power. He therefore, wisely
resisted the overt ires of the Czar. The present
war between '"'Russia and Turkey is but the
legitimate consequence of the grasping policy
of the former. E very indication tends to show
that it will not b confined to the two powers
immediately concerned. England and France
have been alternating the part of mediators,
juntil their, patience is well nigh exhausted.
They are now ser ously and energetically pre
paring for a trem ndous struggle. The advices
by the Arabia confirm the intelligence of a great
battle at Citale, in which the Turks were victori
the Kussians losing lour thousand men.
The effect of the news of this disaster upon the
Czar Nicholas, ca ii scarcely be expected to be
favorable to peare. His nature is proud, his
will is strong, his resources for carrying, on the
war considerable. I It is natural therefore that
he should be unv illing to make peace under
circumstances so veil calculated to destroy the
prestige of Russian arms and to weaken the in
fluence of Russu among European powers.
Moreover, the fleets of England and France
entered the Black Sea on the 5th of January,
for the avowed purpose of protecting the Tur
kish convoys. II iv can the Czar regard this
but as an interference in behalf of Turkey?
Will he make peace in the face of such interfer
ence? The thing is improbable. We look. upon
a general European War as cefiaiu. Austria

The Argus says in reply to our remarks upon
the whig meeting which was held here on Tues
day week last, -;.;:I:.-.'
"We (the whigs) are united and united we
mean to press forward boldly and fearlessly,
advocating the people's right to amend the Con
stitution in a Convention of the people, rather
than by partizan politicia ns and the whig meet
ing would so have said but for an omission." ;
Well, supposing the whig meeting had so said,
it would not have pronounced any new or start
ling doctrine. We are not a ware that any body
has ever yet denied the right of the people to
amend the Constitution in a, Convention; The
Constitution of North Carolina provides two
methods by which it may be amended. One is
by legislative enactment, ratified by the popular
vote at the ballot box. The other is bv a-Coni
vention. The Arcrus may e:o on as lonjr asft
chooses advocating the people's right of amen-
incj the Constitution in a Convention. We shall
never deny that right.
But what we chiefly note is the forgctfulnes
oi tne whig meeting m omitting to say some
th in j; in favor of an open Convention. That
was one omission. And if the resolution recom
mending Gen. Dockery had not been pressed
upon the meeting, we should perhaps have heard
that the failure to recommend Gen. Dockery
was purely an act of omission!
Notwithstanding all that may be said by whig
prints, we believe there arc many respectable
whigs scattered all over the country who would
look upon an open Convention with distrust. It
is a delicate subject, gentlemen; we commend
it to your careful handling

Mr Gales, of the Raleigh Register, has
procured a Montague &Boardman Power Press
to priut the Register. It throws off about 800
copies per hour. This is another evidence of
improvement in the press of our State. We
wish friend Gales all pecuniary success.
If the people of North Carolina wish an able
and independent press, it behooves them to eu
courage enterprise and reward diligence by sub
stantial marks of popular approval. Our whi
friends have appreciated the importance of sus
taining their presses, and, we are gorry to sayf
it, have, generally speaking, shown more liberali
ty in this regard than the democracy. Why
just look around for the proof of this. You see
in North Carolina more whigpapers than demo
cratic, and generally speaking, they are better
supported. Yet we know that the number of
democrats in the State is greater than the ntfih-
ber of whigs. We have no doubt that the
secret of whig ascendancy in North Carolina
for so long a time, has been the absence of pro
per encouragement to democratic papers. The
election is fast approaching. Much depends on
the result a Governor, two Senators, and
Free Suffrage. Then we say to the democracy,
circulate democratic papers. Give the people
the means of being enlightened. All will then
" We think it very probable that a strenuous
effort will be made to incorporate the Wilmot
Proviso in the act organizing Nebraska; but we
do hope that the present Congress will not dis
grace itself by inflicting so great a wrong upon
the South. As President Pierce however, is so
strong a friend to the freesoil faction that will
insist upon the proviso, we shall not be surpris
ed if he favors the disruption ! of the , late com
promise. We are prepared for anything now a
days." AsheviUt Sjtectator. - ,f ' -
The above is a specimen of the manner in
which the whig Press is accustomed to treat
the Administration of President Pierce. The
intelligent editor of the Asheville Spectator
thinks that President Pierce will co-operate
with the Free-soilers in procuring the passage
of the Wilmot Proviso 1 And yet the President
is known to be favorable to Mr Douglass' Bill
for organizing Nebraska and Kansas, in which
there is a clause repealing the Missouri Compro
mise, which is but another name for the Wilmot
Proviso. Both the Missouri Compromise and
the Wilmot Proviso work! the exclusion of
slavery from the territory of the United States
by Congressional legislation. And the President
who favors the repeal of the Missouri Compro
mise, because it unlawfnlly prohibits slavery in
the United States territory, is to be held up as
likely to favor the Wilmot Proviso! If this be
not rank injustice, we know not what to call it:
We learn from the Salem Press of the

and he is as stout as any hand in my employment.
