In another part of our paper we have made out, from
ITie President notice of sales of public lands, a list of the

this statement it appears that the whole amount of pub

summer and f:illtekccedii two millions of acres. It strikes
tit that Congress hare hitherto pursued an unwise policy
in brinjing' sucJarge quantities of the public lands into
market. To m v Anc least of It, the Atlantic stales should
off their population, thelrWealth, enterprize and talents.
From the last Treasury statement on the subject, it
ftppears that up wards of twenty tm&ont of dollars arc now
owing to the United States from the purchasers of pub

The President and Directors rejrrct that manr
of the subscribers have failed to make payment.
In r ebruary last, they advertised the sale of the
stock of delinquent subscribers, to be made at
Salisbury in April. Doubts were entertained
whether, under the charter of the company, sales .
of stock could legally be made elsewhere than in
the town of Halifax ; and in consequence thereof,
the sale advertised was postponed. It will be
necessary to make such a sale if subscribers any
r delay, pay menl. lhe contracts whieli
have been entered into cannot be fulfilled on the
part of the company, and the work must languish
to the great iujury of the public, as well as of tho
several contractors, unless payment be speedily
The President and Directors are of opinion,
from the best information they can obtain on the
subject, that if subscribers would be reasonably
diligent in paying their instalments, the river
could be improved for a commodious navigation,
by the end of next year, from Wilkesborough to
the mouth of Abbott's Creek, a distance of 15
miles ; and from the Gunsmith Shoals, near the
mouth of Uhara river, to the South Carolina line,'
a distance of sixty miles.
