SOUTHERN ULTJEJHAT U RE.
We do not purpose entering- into an elaborate dis
quisition upon this subject, for two reasons. First,
to enumerate all the disadvantages -connected with
the development of such literary taste and talent as
we possess in the south, and the confinement of their
exercise to our-own section, would of itself consume
more time and space than we have at command.
Second, the assignment of all the causes why a
more liberal and generous encouragement is not ex
tended to polite literature at home by the Southern
people might trench somewhat upon the self pride
of some jeople and, as that i a dangerous tres
pass, and our design is rather to accomplish some
benefit than to injure the cause, we will, confine our
tself to a single point of the latter.
We have reference merely to periodical litera
ture, literary magazines, and newspapers, exclud
ing from consideration the higher and more iiupor
tnnt branches and elements of the subject.
It is a lamentable fact that the support extended
to our periodical literature is so meagre, so insuffi
cient, and withal so grudgingly bestowed, that the
occupation and profession of publisher and editor
is a thankless, profitless, and, in many instances,
ruinous labor. It is also true, and equally to be
lamented, that the Southern country is flooded, lit
erally flooded, with Northern publications, the ver
iest trash and scum that float iipou the tide of liter
ature. They are taken into our houses, conned by
our firesides, and while our children's tastes are
xitiatctl, tltf-ir woret appetites unratified wad ftxlats
i-stimutc of true literature formed iu their minds,
our dollars are sent away to jingle in the pockets of
those who are at best but negative friends of the
south, and in many, very many, instances the bit
terest foes to her institutions. And in the mean
time our own journals, whoso merits, moral and
intellectual, arc as prominent as the evils of the
others are glaring, arc left to eke out a miserable
existence with the scanty pittance of a grudging
and unwilling patronage.
Thousands of copies of such printed abomina
tions as the New York Ledger are circulated thro'
ut the Southern States. There is Bcarccly a vil
lage or hamlet which it has not penetrated and
drawn therefrom the patronage and encouragement
which, we contend, do, and of right ought to, belong
to our own pure, wholesome, instructive literature.
And that hotch-potch of balderdash, sickly sen
timent, puling poetry and pestilent prose, the Sat
urday Evening Tost, enjoys, we venture to say,
more paying patronage in the Southern states than
all our literary periodicals put together. These
are but isolated instances. There are, we were
going to say, hundreds more of the like ilk, an
enumeration of which is not necessary to our pur
pose. We do not pretend to account for this. If
you say, give us better periodicals and we will pat
ronize them, we say patronize and encourage them
Jirst and they will thrive, nnd with thrift and a tan
gible sense of your appreciation will come improve
ment and increased usefulness. But your literarv
papers and periodicals are even now, with your
stinted patronage and scanty encouragement, bet
ter, inestimably better than the miserable libels
upon literature to which you give so ungenerous a
preference. They are purer in their morals, high
er in thefr sentiment, sounder iu their philosophy,
and in every literary requisite incomparably supe
rior to all those catch-penny ephemera upon which
you are literally throwing away your gold. Will
you acknowledge that the tinsel and gingerbread
ornament which accompany these publications are
better suited to yottr literary " appetite than the
wholtsome food which your own caterers present
to your palate? You are virtually making the ac
knowledgement ! If you contend that your home
literature is inferior in quality to the imported
wares which you prefer, yon grossly and infa
mously libel Southern literary journal and even
if it be true as you contend, then the shame rests
upon yourselves because of your refusal to bestow
upon them that patronage and encouragement
which render the others superior. Take which
horn of the dilemma yon please. Still we do not
pretend to account for the preference. We wish
to cast no reflections upon the taste and literary
penchant of the Southern people. "Let him who
thiuketh the cap fitteth wear it, aye and stick a
peacock's feather in it if he pleases."
But let us look a little on the other side of the
picture. May there not be something of a fault
on the part of those who ask for this patronage?
We will cite a single instance as a veritable illus
tration. Sometime since a Southern monthly was estab
lished, and sanguine ' opes were and still are en
tertained of its succ i s as a Southern literary en
terprize. We hailed its advent with no little pride
and gratification; for we saw that genius was at
the helm, nnd we knew that southern talent could
freight the vessel with cargoes of princely value.
With sincere pleasure, and we may surely sav
it without self laudation with patriotic enthusiasm
we wrote to the editor offering him onr columns as
an advertising medium, together with our paper,
for the privelege of exchanging; assuring him fur
thermore that we would take pleasure as a South
ern niiui.both editorinlly and otherwise, in enlarging
his circulation. We wrote fervidly, heartily, with
no more self interest in the matter than we would
exercise in subscribing a dollar to the Washington
monument. But that was the last of it. We
neither received an answer to our note, nor from
that day to this have we seen a copy of the magazine-
Our ardor in the cause of Southern literature
is not at all diminished thereby; nor do we the less
sincely wish the enterprize abundant success. But
we know that, let us say it parenthetically (there
are some fifty or more names not upon his sub
scription books which otherwise would have figured
there for twelve months at least.)
How many others of our cotemporaries were
similarly snubbed we can only julge by not having
seen any mention made of the magazine in their
columns. We can both, perhaps, get along with
out each other: but such a spirit is by no means
promotive of the advancement and exaltation of our
periodical literature. AYo fear that there is too
much of it existing, both on the part of magazine
and newspaper publishers. What may be the mo
tive influence in pursuing such a course we may
not say. They know best: but we humbly sug
gest that a slight relaxation from that unbending
rigidity might in some instances prove at least prof
itable. We could not be more lucid on this point
without calling names in connection therewith; and
that we do not purpose doing.
The only strictly literary magazine in the South
that has withstood the neglect and indifference of
those whose duty it was liberally and generously to
sustain and encourage it is the Southern Liter
ary Mkssenger: and we seriously doubt whether,
with all its high literary excellencies, its acknow
ledged superiority, aud the talent which has ever
presided over its pages; we say that we doubt
whether with all this the Messenger would have re
tained its robust vitality in any other city but Rich
mond and in any other state but the glorious old
commonwealth of Virginia. For many years it has
been the standard of Southern literature, and at
one time, when the lamented Poe lent the brilliance
of his fevered genius to its pages, the Messenger
had no literary superior in the United States. Ifc
stands now far, far above the thousand and one
namby-pamby literary swindles through which the
south is annually fleeced of the golden patronage
for which her people get no equivalent.
And if Southern journalists would but do their
duty towards the literary interests of the south,
the popular eye would not so often be caught by
the staring announcement of the reception of "this
splendid No of Godey" or Peterson or Graham or
some other humbug, and there would be fewer re
commendations of this and that literary catch-penny
than now insult both the good sense and patriot
ism of our people.
Give encouragement to whom you will, and be
stow your patronage where you please but do not,
do not sacrifice Southern merit to Yankee impu
dence, and show so decided a preference for North
ern brass when your own bright Southern gold is
shining at your doors!
The experiment is about to be essayed iu this
State. Mr Stedman proposes to establish a strictly
literary periodical in Salem, and calls upon all
North Carolinians to give him countenance and
encouragement in the enterprize. How many Car
olinians will give up their trashy yankee papers and

THE STiVJE AND CCnjNTY FAIRS.
The Sjatywurricultural IJnjrjillbe held in Ral
eigh, commencing on the. 20tlJrtsr. Extensive
preparations aregoing on for rendering the occa
sion interesting and additionally attractive. There
will doubtless be a large attendance and we learn
that the quantity of sto k etc entered for exhibition
is much greater than it has heretofore been. We
acknowledge the kindness of an invitation to the
Fair, and will endeavor to be present on the occa
sion. Our Cumberland Fair comes offhere on the 4th,
5th and Cth of November, two "weeks after the j
State Fair, and we beg our friends in the country ;
not to forget it. The citizens of neighboring conn- !
ties are solicited to attend, and are particularly
invited to send contributions to the various depart- '
mcnts. The occasion promises to bo a very inter- I
esting one; and we see no reason why our county i
fairs should not be made the media of a vast deal I
of benefit to the mechanic and agricultural portiens
of the people, that being the main object of the en- I
terprize. If those classes of the community will j
but heartily respond to the call, and cooperate with j
all others interested in improvement and advance- ;
ment, the usefulness of the enterprize will be en- J
haneed an hundred fold. j

Apropos of thai" iasti'ntion, tt noticed a s-r;ort time :
ago in a few of the rabid old line whig American
papers the charge very gravely made that the pre- ;
sent state of monetarv affairs is the naurnl result !
of the sub-treasury system, and that all the panic, i
suspensions, insolvencies Sec lately occurring are
the legitimate fruits of the sub-treasury. But no
body noticed the charge, and they soon dropped it.
We were somewhat amned at the inconsistency
of one of these "public lights," with whom, howev
er, consistency has never been a marked peculiar
ity. In one column of his paper was a long and
labored article pointing out the commercial causes
leading inevitably to a fatal business result such as
had just now supervened, nnd counselling the pur
suance of such a course in the future as would pre
vent a recurrence of the same. In the next column
we found a fierce onslaught upon the sub-treasury,
attributing all the difficulties in the monetary world
to that vigorous nnd healthy successor of the de
cayed and dilapidated IT. S. Bank. The editor
evidently stultified himself, and certainly convicted
himself of a false statement or a grievous mistake
in the one case or the other. However, he has so
frequently done that in reference to democratic
measures that it excited no remark at the time,
aud we merely allude to it now becanse it happen
ed to suggest itself at this time.
A severe run having been made time after time
upon the Cape Fear river banks, . and the banks
having, not exactly suspended, but "broke" every
time, we still find the Navigation company leaning
upon them. Their liabilities already exceed their
assets by more than ahalf million, and yet the com
pany lias the perversity to insist that the public
confidence in those repeatedly broken institutions
should remain unimpaired. We warn the public
that they are not worth a dam. -

The Scott Armistice.
We find tlie following communication in a
Xew York paper.
Baltimoke, Sept. 27, 1S57. The per
sonal recriminations of Gen. Scott, Pillow,
and Hitchcock, have cast an unexpexted ray
of light upon the bribery and corruption
episodes of the Hystericus armistice before
the city of Mexico, but none of these gentle
tlemou exposed the true origin of that cost
ly concession. Scott and Santa Anna male
the bargain, and the United States paid for
it, but British policy drew U the profits; j
Senator Foot e said at the time, "Let the'
British Minister who concocted this disgrace
ful armist ice be brought into the foreground,
that our people may understand that its
main object was to defeat Mr Buchanan's in
structions to Commissioner Trist to obtain a
national highway to the Pacific."
The armistice was dictated by Mr Bank
head, the British Minister. His object was
to prevent the United States from getting,
the right-of-way to the Facific through Te
huantepec. This fact was as well understood by many
officers of the army in Mexico as by Mr Polk
and his Cabinet; but the way it was done is
not yet known to the people, and Gen Hitch
cock and Gen. Pillow should tell the whole
There is another interesting fact which
has hitherto been sacredly kept from the
knowledge of those outsiders who had no
share in the armistice spoils.
Santa Anna and his clique of British and
American friends did receive their million of
dollars. How? By a neat little mercantile
arrangement which Her Briton Majesty's
Consul, Mackintosh, brobably contrived.
The disbursements of the army were made iu
Mexican coin after the armistice, and drafts
on the United States government at five to
ten per cent, premium; but, in lieu of ex
changing them for Mexican coin at that rate",
a discount of from five to ten per cent, was
made on them to the Mackintosh and Santa
Anna clique, who sold them at from five to
to ten per cent, premium. This fifteen to
twenty per cent, of special perquisites on the
many millions disbursed for the United Sta
tes army in Mexico, amounted to a fortune
"all around for the British armistice party.
Gen. Worth and other officers opposed the
armistice as warmly as the British Minister
advocated it- Worth knew that the Cabinet
having had a specimen of this sort of Mex
ican finesse at Monterey had warned Gen.
Scott not to consent to any armistice.
Gen. Hitchcock may possibly remember
one occasion, about the close of the Mexican
war, in which Gen. Worth, in speaking of the
mysterious sacrifice of American interests,
made use of pretty strong language strong
enough for any one to remember. In that
conversation no one denied that the armistice
was the work of the British Minister, Mr
Bankhead, or that the object of the delay was
to cut out of the proposed treaty with Mexi
co a clause granting to the U. States the
right of way to the Pacific via Tehuantepec,
and to remodel and contract the new boun
dary line marked out by Mr Buchanan, which
would have given to the United States a post
at the head of Gulf of California, and such
a boundary line as would secure a short and
practicable road to the Pacific, through our
territory. If Gen. Hitchcock will enlighten
us by giving his opinion on the part played
by the British Minister in making the arm
istice, and will tell the public who were
benefitted by the rich speculations in dis
counts and premiums on the United States
Treasury paper, we may then proceed with
some other interesting incidents of the se
cret history of the war with Mexico. If
General Hitchcock will not speak, perhaps
General Pillow Avill raise another corner of
the curtain. Maryland.
CANAL ACROSS THE ISTHMUS
We find in the Washington State, a letter
from Commodore Paulding to the Navy De
partment, reporting favorably upon the
feasibility - of the Canal. The letter savs
2th of August, the writer or-
o ""-i-u i i-i l v uuu started out on a "reeon-
noisance" of the Isthmus between Aspinwall
and Panama, with reference to the practica
lity of constructing an interoceanic canal
aiftiss the Isthmus of Darien to this point.
'he route by which the railroad pusses
was in every respect the most " desirable for
this purpose, and the means by which the
character of the country could be best known,
asfa,r as its topography and the features es
sential to the object in view could be seen.
It was, in fact, the direct means for the ac
complishment of the purpose.
It is supposed that the canal will be united
with the waters of the Pacific on either side
of the city, and that a channel might be
dredged to the depth of thirty feet, to meet
the navigable waters for ships of large
draught. The bay then expands into an
anijile harbor, where the winds are said never
to blow with violence, sufficiently compre
hijnsive for the commerce of the world, and

r!ie Isthmus itself seems to present no
sef'ous obstacle to science for the construc

Athntic to the Pacific, is made up of swamps,
hilt, and plains; and the highest point of
lani where the railroad passes is no more
thai two hundred and eightysix feet above
the level of the sea. On the whole route
most, if not all the hills through which the
cant! would pass would be required for cra
barkaents over the plains and swamps; and

to imkx! the waters of the Chagres, Obispo j

breakwater would be necessary here.
With such a one as would afford the neces

bay of Aspinwall, like the bay of Panama,
would afford ar, pie room for the commerce of
Europe as well as America; and in contem

In a work like that of a canal through the
Isthmus of Darien, it is to be supposed that
the requirements of connQrce and naviga
tion, iu its most extended application, would
alone be considered; and, taking this for a
standard, a canal two hundred feet wide and
thirty feet deep would seem to be the appro
Accordiuor to Engineer Totten's estimate,
the distance from ocean to ocean, along the
proposed line of route for the canal is forty

from fivje fathoms water in Navy bay to three
fathomideep in the Bay of Aspinwall is
forty-eirht and thrre-tourth miles. I he

DAX(p:u of CniNOLiXE. Has the question
ever octbrred to ladies wearing the present
amplitude of light drapery, expanded -by
crinoline, or sort of hoop, what would hap
pen if Uivfiusliii should chance to take lire?
None of ready expedients for extinguish
ing fire irould be available against such a
volume f drapery bo disposed to flames.
The dre$ could not be gathered; it is so ar
ranged as to render that impossible, and the
expedient of lying down and rolling in a
hearthrug, which saved the life of many a
woman before the introduction of the pres
ent fashion, would not avail against the res
istance of the stiffened frame of crinoline or
steel, spreading the burning surface to the
air. Should ladies for fashion sake, expose
themselves to so frightful a risk? Escape
seems impossible if the dress takes fire. In
former times, when hoops were worn, the
substance of the dress was seldom of a na
ture to ignite. The case is different now,
and a spark is enough to set a muslin dress
in a blaze.

money panics are confined exclusively to this
country. They result from the over issue of

Bank of France issues no bill for less than 100
francs about IS dollars of our money. The

currency." The circulating medium, therefore,
in the ordinary transactions of trade, consists
of gold and silver. No such thing is known

CAROLINA CITY is situated on an elevated plain,
ik fet Rbove tide want, immediately, on the wa
ters of Ceaatort Harbor. , This location lor a great
Lcomistercial city, was selected by men of commercial
experience, alter a lull examination of all tlie lands
on the HarlMir of iieanfort. iu anticipation of the coa
Rtmetiou of the great CentraliiKailrwadiJrom uaict Uar-
Dor yjrongJi IJie Xte of Carolina. .coaBCCtuig ,
with the lines of the . Kail Roads otv Teuu:see, ' -
coming east from Memphis on the Miwusyippij aud
also.in anticipation of the construction of a ii'.iilVoud
from Carolina City through the counties of Onslow,
Duplin. .Sampson aud the town of Fayctteville to tha
Coal Fields on peep .fiver.
The Atlantic and N C 7'ailr3ad from Carolina Cify
to Goldsboro, will lie opened by the 1st., January
next. The North Carolina .Railroad 13 in operation,
to i ho town of Salisbury, from which point the cour
struction of the great Western Railroad through the
Mountains to the Tennessee line, is steadily progress
ing. The Railroad through Fayetteville to-'the coal
lieids has for some time occupied the attention of the
State, and doubtless will eventually be put in opera
tion, that part between Fayctteville and tlie coal
Fields being in rapid course of construction. Tim
completion of these great Railroaos. will carry the.
Agricultural and Mineral products of the State to one
of the liuest harbors on the southern roart. uud must,
at an curly day build up on its waters a flourishing
All the agricultural regions of the State-not pene
trated by said ..'ail roads, have easy communication
withlJeaufort Harbor by Navigable Rivers and Sounds.
Of the HarUir at Rcuufort, we believe it isunn-cci H
sary now to speak, the depth of its waters, its prox
imity to the (rulf stream, the high way of ships, and
its capacity for all commercial purposes, arc not only
well known to every North Curolinian, Hut have at
tracted the attention of the country generally.
The Carolina City Co, believe that the advantages
of the location, which they have selected, are many.
Their land isuhiirh nnd level plain, looking south
ward upon the ocean, its wells and f-prings afford the
purest waters and the salubrity of the climate is so well
known that TJcaufoat is believed to be the most healthy
watering place on the southern coast. -
At this location, the channel for ships bends 1 near
thu shore and runs pare) lei Willi it along the whole
front of the' City, making the construction of wharves
cheap and easy ; the Harbor and wharves at Carolina
City, being a short distance from the conflux of Bojruo
Sound Newport river, not immediately in front of tho
inlet, are unexposed to the violence of storms, aud yet
a ship miy wet sail from the railroad r harf oil Caroli
na city and in thirty minutes be at sea. -
These are some of the advantages whicli determined
the selection of the locBtion of Carolina City, and fo
great a coulidence had the company ou the superiority
of these advantages, that they subscribed, and paid in
$2.i.tU)) to the capital Stock of the Atlantic and N. C.

upon the faith'of real estate on the Beaufort Harbor.
