expression of approbation, which all par

wisdom and a proud comment on the jus

Chief-Magistrate. His eqnanimity and
liberal views, has teconriled the two great
contending parties, diffusing throughout
the Republic, mildness, concord and bro

democratic construction or the Federal
Constitution, have pien another happf
epoch to the Republic, of progressive
wealth, reputation and individual happi
ness. The period of his service
form a proud and interesting pne in our
national hintorv and an exquisite feas to
the scrtniniiing eve of futuritv. This
pleasing view of the Admi"i'raion of
.ir illustrious Piesident, mciurrs a con
fiilent hope, that we. the citizens of
North-Caroliiia, and of the UHun also,
will unaniniouslv support his suc&Vssor,
sacrificing ouLaoimosities, and the asper

and fraternize with undivided strength,
in defence of the constitution of our coun-

generally, in this state, that the works in
the Cape-Fear River, both below and
above the town of Wilmington, have
been attended, to far, with signal auccess ;
a success whch must fully equal the ex
pectations of .the most sanguine, when we
consider theldiflicullies which have been
encountered in their progrMSt-and-thal
all worka of the nature of those' at the
Flats below Wilmington, must have time
to complete their effect. From the best
information, if' may be, safely affirmed,
that all doubta of their ultimate success,
are at an end. There is, at present, no
difficulty in the navigation, to any ship
ping which could come up to the port,
previous to the erecting of the embank
ments; and by the mere force of the
current, without the aid of drags which
were intended to be used, the channel is
evidently deepening. I he immense im
portance oi this work to the state, and its
evident practicability, is a strong induce
trtent. to determine us never to lose sight
of, or abandon it, until fully accomplished.
