yourself as sure as you are born. '- In that cae,

Sig j The Hoard of Internal Imprnvemenls, by
the Act wbkh created it, has a general supcrin
lendnnce over all the public improvement in' tho
Siatc ; for which reason il is highly important that
the total amount of produce of each county in the
State should be in the possession of, and know n to,
the B mrd. Such a mas of statistical information
would form a text book of reference of incalculable
advantage for the -successful prosecution of the
f works now in progress, and, if possible, of still
.greater importance to such a should hereafter be
recommended lo tho patronage of tlie Slate and
our citizens. '.77J 1 . '
' By reference lo ihe'Fayctteville and Western
