FAYETTE V ILL E, N. C.
; The following communication was put in type
for last week's paper, but was crowded out:
-: " For the Carolinian,
i Tbe Atlantic and Sort h Carolina Railroad.
!Mr Editor: I have seen an Extra, from the
Office. of a 'Newberu -''paper containing the intel
ligence that at a meeting of the Commissioners
of thtf Atlantic and North Carol ina Ita il roa d
-Coniprpy, held in Newbern on the 14th June,
the snrl of Jive hundred and one theusaiid three
Tiitndr 4 dollars was found subscribed on the
bboksgri the town of Newbcrn. The five per

The subscription of $"4C(f 000.
subacribed in Italeijrh bv Rislev & Co.. was de
clared Wid and thrown out for want of evidence
of the lycun'iary ability of the subscribers, and
the'infoVuality in the note offered to secure the
5 per ccit.
Whatthe informality in the note given to
secure tlfc 5 per cent, on Rislev $:- Go's sub-
scriptionkvas, the bulletin from which I get myJ
informatt u docs not state. If the note whs
defective it is a little singular that it should
have beet received by the Commissioners who
had charaj of the subscription books at Raleigh.
On turnip to the charter of the Company, 1
find that commissioners for receiving sub
scriptions It Raleigh are Romulus M. Saunders,
i. V,.Mtdccai, XV. V. llolden, J. II. Bry
dw'd Valorongh, and W. Whitaker, Es
It would sjem to me that some of those gentle
men are stificientlv learned in the law to detect
any infornlity in the note to secure the o per
cent. Thtrejection of Risky & Co's subscriji
tion on thigrpund appears the more remark
able when b is observed that there is not a legal
gentleman (so far as I can learn) in the whole
Board of General Commissioners.
Bit there was another ground upon which
the subscription of Risky : Co. was declared
void, viz: the want of evidence of their stand
ing. It-strikes me that if the right to reject a
subscription oh this ground is vested any where
by tie charter of the Company, it must be -vested
in the commissioners who receive the sub
scriptions. The charter provides that when a
subscription is made, and the 5 per cent paid, or
secured to be paid, the commissioners shall pass
a receipt to the subscriber. If this was done
(which I presume) in the case of Risky & Co.,
it would seem to me that they hold, in that re
ceipt, the written evidence of a vested right to
$400,000 of stock in the Atlantic and X.
C. Paiiroad Co. What force can lie in the
objection that the general commissioners had
no evidence that Rislev & Co. are rood ? The
charter does not rivc them the
of the solvency of subscribers.

profess to act. I repeat, that if any such pow
er existed in this case, it was vested -in the
commissioners at Raleigh. That ttey were
satisfied that they did not have the right, or at
least that it was not their duty, to reject the
subscription in question, is evident from the fact
that they did nvt reject it. I am bound, there
fore, to believe that the proceedings of the
Board of General Commissioners at Xewbern,
as disclosed to me, are void that Risky & Co.
have a right to a majority of the stock of the
Atlantic and X. C. Railroad. And they are
not the men I take them to be if they submit to
such arbitrary proceedings as those of the Gen
eral Commissioners at Xewbern.

The Paris correspondent of the London Times
contradicts the rumored intention of the Em
peror Napoleon to obtain a divorce from the
Enqwess. We are glad to learn that in this
respect the "nephew of my uncle" is not disposed
to follow the bad example of his relation:
I have already contradicted, and from very
good authority, the rumor which was current
that the Emperor contemplated a dissolution of
his marriage with the Empress. My allusion
to the rumor was, perhaps more vague than was
necessary, even with every possible considcraion
for the delicacy of the subject. The rumor is
still current, for there are some members of the
legitimist party who spare neither money nor
pains to propagate it ; and in several of the
foreign journals it is alluded to as having gained
much credit in Paris. I contradict again, in
most peremptory manner, the rumor itself, and
also the statement of its having gained considera
ble credit in this capital. Nothing whatever
has occurred to warrant even the supposition
that there is anv irround for desirini.-a divorce
on political grounds, and still less for supposing
that if the hone of direct issue had diminished,
such a circumstance would affect the union of j
ttdistinguished personages alluded to. I could
mention twenty facts to show that if the conduct
of theEmperor justified severe criticism, his social
relations are such that it would be utterly im
possible to fix upon him a single fact to indicate
that his political ambition, great as it may be,
! would ever preponderate over his affections. All
j that is necessary now is to assert that there is not,
land nevee line boon tbn slirrbtest frOIIfld for
, , .. ' , . . . i'"- ,
1 ie '"'Potation which is cast upon him As to
lIlc question ol tne probability or lmprooauuiij
of there being direct issue from the imperial
marriage, I will only say that no communication
has been made, either private or official, that
the event is improbable; and that, on the con
trary, there is at this moment a strong rumor
in the court circles that the Empress is likely
soon to gratify the hopes of the Emperor, and
disappoint those of the persons who have ureal
or fancied interest in his leaving no direct issue.
A Case of Conscience. Some time since
the Collector of the Port of Georgetown, S. C,
received an anonymous letter from Beaufort,
enclosing a North Carolina Bank note for one
hundred dollars, stating thatthe person sending
it justly owed it to the United States. The
Collector at Georgetown w rote to the Depart
ment at Washington in relation to the subject,
and was instructed to send the note to the Col
lector at Wilmington, who could gev the specie
for it and deposit' it in tfie U. S. Depository
here, which has been done. It may be some
satisfaction to the sender to know that his
wishes have been carried out. - Wil. Journal.

Russians had made a practicable breach, but a
freshet in the Danube had prevented the storm

the fortress might hold out 15 days. The com
mandant, Messa Pasha, says he will blow- up
himself and the fortress rather thau surrender.
During the night of May 2'Jth the Russians
made three attempts to storm, but were repulsed
with fearful loss, leaving 1,500 dead beneath
the ramparts The Turks also made a sortie,
and effected a dreadful massacre of the Russians
4,500 being reported as the number of their
wounded and slain.
The head-quarters of the allied army were nt

march consequently by the 10th, or say the
15th June, they would be in the face of the

There had been considerable fighting else
where. On the 31st May a serious a flair oc
curred at Slatina, when the Turks defeated
2,000 Russians, killed 500, and captured their
artillery. Other encounters, more or less san
guinary, are reported.

A meeting between the Emperor of Austria

that Count Nostiz is the bearer of a letter from

application to Mr. Thompson for relief. They
stated that they were jiiit from Canada hav
ing come over by the boat and were destitute
of means; hence the appeal for aid. Mr T.
kept them during the day and the succeeding
night, and then told them that if they persisted
in asking aid, he should be compelled to send
them to the County House Upon this
they left. Nothing further was heard from
them t,ill several days after, when an old man
arrived from Canada in pursuit of them, stating
that the woman was his own wife, and the man
his son by a former one. Whether he succeed
ed in tracing the fugitives we have not learned.

Bayard Taylor on Nitmf.gs. On our rc
turn to the ship we visited a nutmeg planta
tion. The trees, which arc from twenty to thir
ty feet in height, are planted in rows, at inter
vals of about twenty feet. The leaf is chirk
green and glossy, resembling that of the laurel,
and the fruit, at a little distance, might be
taken for a small russet-colored apple. When
ripe, the thick Husk splits in the centre, show-
kg a scarlet net-work of mace, enveloping an
inner nut, black as ebony, the kernel of which
is' the nutmeg of commerce. The clove tree,
not now in its bearing season, lias some resem
blance to the nut, but the leaf is smaller and
the foliage more loose and spreading. As we
drove, through the orchard the worm air of
noon was heavy with spice. The rich odors ex
haled from the trees penetrated the frame with
a sensation of languid and voluptuous repose.
Perfume became an appetite, and the senses
were drugged with an overpowering feeling of
luxury. Had I continued to indulge m it, I
should ere long" have realized the Sybarite's
complaint of his crumpled roseleaf.

scene took place recently on the steamer Eureka,
just as she was leaving for Cleveland. A rough
looking genius came aboard with a powerful
bull-dog at his heels. Walking directly into
the office, the individual said to the clerk:
'Stranger, I want to leave my dog in this 'ere
office till the boat starts. I'm afraid that some
body will steal hirn.' You can't do it," said
the clerk. 'Take him out.' 'Well stranger,
that's cruel: but you're both dispositioned alike
and he is kinder company for you 'Take him
out roared the clerk. Well, stranger, I don't
think you're honest, and you want watching:
here, Bull, set down here and watch that fellow
sharp;' and the 'individual turned on his heel
saying, 'put him out; stranger, if he's trouble
some.' The dog lay there when the" boat start
ed, watching the clerk, who gave him tbe bet
ter half of the office.
On Sunday afternoon, the Custom House was
stricken by lightning, an individual being on
the roof at the time. No damage was done.
