culty. but then it must be
obvious to every
mechanic, that an arrangement so necesnni ily
complicated must be easily deranged. It re
quires ten men to work it, besides a horse in
front to guide its movements.
Now, to illnsnata the trauscwidence of Yan
kee genius, con i J are it to Favvkes' machine.
This only weighs, With fuel and water for hail
a day's work, seven tons! The width of the
machine is about six and a half feet, and the
lensrth between 18 and 20 feet, iiieludintr the
nlows and frame. aThe roilei"is an upright)
tabular, of, we should judge, 23 Qjp24 horse
power. The engines are horizontal, tf ordina
ry construction, i. n I uiaks fourteen exhausts
to one revolution of the driver. The league
of the machine consists in the employment oft
large cyliiidershaped something like a barrel,
for the purpose of traction, which it secures to
the utmost extent, at the same time dispensing
with all the complexity of the Boydell machine,
and preventing all siukinjr in soft soil, which
cannot otherwise be so effectually done. The
two front wheels are of iron, about feet in
diameter and twelve inch face. These work oi;
axle in the centre of the axletree, by means
of a segmentary toothed wheel and screw,
which are connected by chains with a steerin;,
wheel, under the immediate control of the
driver, who stand? to the left of the boiler.
The left hand of the operator rests on the wheel,
.i - :
nun uis ngni ue can reverse me engine turow
the driver out of gear, raise the safety valve,
sound tli3 steam whistle, and, in fact, has the
entire machine under his control, making it
back, proceed in any direction and turn in
a circle of 25 feet in diameter. The plows,
six in number, are attached in an adjustable
frame to the engine, and can be raised or low
ered as occasion may rtcpuire, by simply raising
a lever: Bjt two men arc required to work
tlie whoa machine eight less than on the
"Boydell" We should give a more minute
description of the machine but for want of time
ond space.
The Tkial. The engine was brought in the
ting at an early hv.ur in the t'ay, steam was
raised in a few moments after the appointed
time, and with a wagon attached, containing a
band of sixteen musicians, playing popular airs,
she started around the track amid the cheers
of the immense crowd which had collected to
witness llie performance. The evidence of the
perfect control which the engineer had over it
was eminently satisfactory to all. It was pro
posed to have the plowing trial take place in
the ring, so that not only the committee and
press, but the entire crowd could have a fair
opportunity of witnessing the operations, but
the committee thought otherwise, and. there
fore ordered it out of the ring to give place to
some horses or jacks, much to the dissatisfac
tion of the people. Why, the practical bearing
which an invention like this has in the welfare
and destiny of the human race is worth as many
jackasses, the tails of which would make a
rope long enouuh and strong enough to string
all the plannets of the solar system together
like onions in a farmer's kitchen. In the after
noon the machine was taken out rnto the
prairie, followed by an immense crowd, the
plows, five in number, attached, and the work
commenced. Many predicted a failure, and all
were prepared to see one if it should occur.
The ground was almost as hard and dry ai
bone, the short silky grass was very sire,
rendering traction nppearantly impossible; but
the inventor, nothing daunted, made the start,

From the Richmond South
In its impression of yesterday, the Whig
indulged its readers with copious extracts
from a recent harangue, in which John W.
Forney esssays to persuade the American
people that the hwhest function ry of Gov
ernment is the basest, villain in thejiation

ordinary abilities, . imperfect education
'd equivocal character. Any employment
of special trust or responsibility was quite
beyond his merit, but the President could
not dismiss him without a equivalent
for his services. He aspired to a seat in
the Cabinet. The President gave him the
annointment of Consul to Liverpool. He
i t
reiected the offer, and straight-way set i
himself to oppose and revile the Adminis
tration. At last, in the phrenzy of baffled
cupidity, he publicly impeached his benefac
tor of the most atrocious offences
personal and political moralitv.
Whatever political adversaries may think
of Mr. Buchanan as a public ma ., all admit
that his private character is without re
proach. His entire life is an admirable
illustration of virtuous endeavor. We know
nothing to his discredit, except his friend-
s.iipior xoniey, a m tuu wy ut- ,
among the amiable innrmities ot a tainuie
ministration was the slime of Forney's sup
port. No generous spirit wilFffproach Mr.
Buchanan with the unworthy alliance at
t ie moment when his bosom is torn by
fang of the treacherous beneficiary.
Of Mr. Forney little is known, and
few conspicuous incidents of his life are no
torious for no other significance than as emi
nent examples ot personal depravity. n
the field of literature, the Forest letter is his
most memorable production. In the prv-
ince of politics, his most signnl ncheivement
was a corrupt interpolation in the journal
of the House of Representatives, an act of
clever villiany, of which he escaped the pun-j
lshment in expulsion trom olnee, through a
defect of legal evidence. Is this the sort ot
b. man upon whose word the President of the
United States must be condemned to perpet
ual infamy? The ingenuous expedient by
which Mr. Forney once proposed to blast
the reputation of a helpless women, suggests
the probability of alike fabrication of false
testimony against a generous benefactor.
He is an aspiring individual, and we can
not do him the injustice to suspect that he
will stop short of the climax of his career.
A n instance of the ' brotherly love " which
characterizes some of the so called Christian
Reformers," a reverend geiitlemau from Louis
iana, was, by resolution, invited to take a
seat in a Sabuth convention recently held in
Cincinnati. He did so, but a few nioiuuuts af
terwards a member arose and wanted to know
whether by inviting a Louisiana preacher'auioiig
them, they intei.ded to endorse slavery. The
convention reconsidered the vote directly, and
the Southern brother was excommunicated with
out cieiity. If you want bigotry, ignorance,
fanaticism or jaundice, 3-011 can find them all
combined in the 'reverend" agitator of the
North. As Hudibias describes him, he is
"A creature of amphibious nature
On land a beast, a lish in water;

Attempted Murder in Court. A des
perate fellow named John George was ar
rested at about 5 o'clock yesterday after
noon, charged with attempting to take the
life of N. Rogers. auct;oneer at No. 194
William street, New York, in Justice Bed
ford's Court. Accused was arrested on
Monday last, on suspicion of having been
concerned in a number of burglaries in Jer
sey City, and the evidence of Mr Rodger's
showed that accused had attempted to sell
him some goods which had b en taken from
the house of Mr Slater. On .Wednesday,
George's woman endeavored to Induce. Mr
Rogers not to appear as a witness, but he
refused. Yesterday, while leaning over the
table to sign his testimony, Geoge seized, a
heavy inkstand and dealt Mr. Rogers a fear
ful blow just benind the ear, inflicting a
severe wound, and probably intending to
kill him. After a complaint was entered,
accused was handcuffed and taken to jail.

Now it is not our object to complain of the

give publicity to our reflection on reading the

ject of internal improvement, to say nothing about
the currency, the credit the honor and prosperity
of North Carolina, our representatives should
know no party; we are all on the same ship, bound
by the same laws, and bound to share in one com

prosper without every interest, every section and

portant that has assembled for years if some
thing is not done to develope our resources and
add to our exchanges, the qustion may well be
asked, how shall we be able to pay the interest on
the State Bonds already issued, to say nothing
about paying the principle, when the bonds them
selves shall be due. It will require the united
wisdom of all parties to provide for tho future
without imposing unnecessary and heavy burthens
upon the people, and yet, the opposition party are
told to "carefully abstain from amending or at
tempting to amend any of their bills."
We are all on the same ship, there are breakers
ahead, the man at the helm would avoid them if he
knew it, but say nothing, if the "Gallant old Ship
of State" is dashed and broken, and we all sink
beneath the waves, "ice trill hold the majority re
sponsible." Has it come to this, is there a party
to be found iu North Carolina, whose motto is
"rule or ruin"? Has the opposition party the 1
party that once boasted in having for its leader a
man who proclaimed to the wor.d "that he would
rather be right than to be successful" so far for-
m.tten the leaeliinirs or the nast. anu become so 1

they too must share in the benefit. If the resources

most earnestly hope that every member of the

lf it be a safe policy to revive the trade, we are

but would recommend it only upon the exigency'
of a dissolution of the Union.

The Home Journal is responsible for the in

be strictly correct as reasoning, and highly judi

competent to make a safe "platform" out of the

is our experience. We have resorted to every
plan human ingenuity could suggest, and adopted
successively every system known to the art, bat
