The State Board of Iuternal Iraprove
mcnU nut with the Directors of the W.
f ;f N. Kail road at Henry on the 13tb, when
! 1 the following proceedings were had :
Hf j. AV. Wilson, Esq., was re-elected Pre
jideut; and S. 1. Erwin, Secretary and
Treasurer. , k ' - ,; ,.: ---w'-
' On account of extension of work beyond
I tlie Blue kidge and the increased dejnand
upon the time and labor of the Presideht,
who has heretofore been both President
Land Chief Engineer, it was deemed advis
I able to separate tlie offices, and Col. Thad.
Coleman, one of tlie best civil engineer
i of the State, was elected Chief Engineer,
j and given the salary of Mr. Clayton, late
Supt. of Construction, relieved, his office
being united with' thafeof. Supervisor of
Convicts; and in future, Maj.R. P. Atkin
son, present sn per visor, will perform the
duii&s both of supervisor and superinten
dent of construction. The Directors be
ing of opinion that the relief thus jpven
the President from construction work
f would enable him to manage the finished
i partof.the road without assistance,, deci
' ded, in the interest of economy (which is
' greatly needed), to remove Capt. A. G.
Halybui ton from the Transportation de
partment which lie has performed with
great fidelity for the last twelve months,
and put this labor on the Presideut.
,Capt. Tom. Murphy and B. Newland
were elected conductors very good ap
J poiDtiiicnts; but we regret to lose that
jovial and clever man, Col. L. B. Ilendcr
1 sou, so deservedly popular as a conductor.
It is confidently exected that the road
will be completed to Asheville by 1st of
January next, j The State Board of Int.
Improvement and the Directors of the
road, expressed themselves as well pleas
jcnl at the. progress inade under tlio man
agement of Maj. Wilson and assistants,
- I attended as it has been, with so many and
j great difficulties to overcome.
Mu. Block, an Englishman, traces the
hard times in the business world to an
accumulatiou.of disasters and mistakes
tiu different .countries within the last 35
years. Tlie Indian famine in Bengal and
Madras ; famine in China ; the civil war
itt tho United States ; the war between
France and Austria j between Prussia
j and Austria, France and Germany, and
;ltussia audTurkey. These terrible dis-
- asters he thinks was sufficient in them
selves to disturb the financial and indus
trial interests of the civilized world, by
, the waste of capital, the withdrawal of
,men from productive labor, and the im-
poverishment of multitudes who ceased
to "be buyers of merchandise, and virtual
, ly became non-producers. To these
pauses he tidds another which he regards
, asof the first magnitude, to wit, specula
: tion in railroad schemes wherein millions
of ! nioney became non-productive hy
reason of being locked np in roads which
were not needed, and never have aud
I never can pay for their construction by
' auy benefit they can confer.
j WethinkMr. Block has taken a very
sensible view of the subject. The effect
of causes snch as he enumerates is no
longer confined to the countries in which
j the causes occur, but their consequences
' and results affect' the whole social system
r of nations bound together by commercial
tics. As the stone thrown into the lake
makes a wave that spreads out to the
: distant shorer inoviug every floating ob
i ject on Its surface, so wars aud famines
r abd national wastefulness in one country,
make themselves felt in all the rest, i

the board of county commissioners of
'Catawba are opposed to granting license
for .the retail of spirituous liquors, and a

State than in tho county of Catawba.
Awhile Rowan is discussiug the local op
tion question through the columns of the
Watchman with learned ability, Catawba
rushes iu and seixes the bull (the liquor
traffic) by the horns and backs him out of

Cloud Would say, "sensesense !"
i. From tlie present signs of the times
Rowan will not bo far behind Catawba.
The opposers of prohibition havecertoin-
displayed ability and skill in their
eortsto overcome plain and obvious
facts, but we thinlc they have failed to

years of experience and observation.

Would deprive the Presideut of the" power
to enforce the laws of the country at
places and j times j where and when its
elections are held. i
: I '
We quote the two last paragrahps of
the views of the Pi-esident, as follows :
"Under the sweeping terms of the bill
the national ; government is effectually
shut out from the exercise of the right
and from the discharge of the imperative
duty to nse its whole executive power,
whenever and wherever required, for the
enforcement j of its laws at places and
times where and when its elections are
held. The employment of its organized
armed forces for ony such purpose would
be an offence against the law unless called
for by and therefore upon tlie permission
of the authorities of the State in which
the occasion arises. What is this but tho
substitution of the State government for
tlie discretion of the government of the
United States as to the performance of its
own duties? j In my judgment this is an
abandonment of its obligations by the na
tional government, a subordination of na
tional authority and an intrusion of State
supervision over national duties which
amounts iu spirit and tendency to State

statutes abundantly adequate to com
pletely prevent military interference with
the elections, in the sense in . which the
phrase is used in the title of this bill, and
is employed by the people of this conn
try, 1 shall find no difficulty in concurring
in any additional legislation limited to
that object which does not interfere with
the indispensable exercise of the powers
of the government under the constitution
The veto message came np next day
when the previous question on the pas
sage of the Bill over the President's veto
was demanded. It failed to receive a
two-thirds vote. It failed byastrict par
ty vote, the Democrats voting solidly for
and the republicans against it ten
greenbackers with tlie democrats and
three not voting at all. The message was
then referred to the Judiciary Committee.
We quote from the telegraphic reports
from Washington as follows :
THE DEMOCRATS !AXD THE VETO.
It was announced ; to-day by parties
supposed to be well ! informed as to the
movements of the Democratic party of
the House, that there would be a caucus
of the joiut advisory Committee held this
evening to determine what course was
most practicable to be pursued on the
bill to prevent military interference at
electious. Upon iuquiry, however, a
member of the committee stated to-night
that the advisability ! of holding such a
meeting had been discussed, but it was
the general, sentiment of the members of
the committee that it was unnecessary
for; them to take any action at this time,
there being no need for a hasty disposal
of the measure.'
The following probably foreshadows
the course of the Democrats :
The Washigton correspondent of the
Philadelphia 27mi, telegraphing Sunday
pight, says ; A very prominent Demo
cratic member of the House, when asked
this evening what his party proposed to
do,! since it was certain tho President
would veto the caucus bill prohibiting the
presence of troops at the polls, said that
he could not answer for the whole party.
"I think, however," 8aid he, '"that the
army bill will be allowed to go to the
devil. We can afford to go to the people
on the issue if the .President vetoes the
bill. For my own part I would etand out
forever before voting for tlie army appro
priation bill. We have given the Presi
dent every chance, and if he chooses not
to take advantage of the opportunity it
is not our fault."
"But what will yon do with reference
to tho legislative, executive and judicial
appropriation bill T"
"Well," said he, "we will first pass it
througlf both Houses and then send it to
thePresident. If the President vetoes it,
which is likelyL we will wake a bill cov
ering the marshals and supervisors and
pass that. This will nndoubledly be
vetoed. Then We will make another bill
repealing the tet oath for jurors, and
this the President will sign. Then we
will pass the legislative bill and go home.
But the army bill will not be passed, you
may be sure. We will go to the people
on the issue raised by that bill, and we

ways of raiders seem past finding out.
Yes, the discoveries of raiders are often
mysterious, but the solution may nearly
always be found in the act of some secret
spyi whose covetousness, cupidity or
malice betrayed the offender for the sake
of reward. Human instincts rise with
greater indignation against the sneak in.

herein lies one of tho strongest objections
to tue internal revenue system : it is con

ing the year account, discover thai he
has not saved anything. These things
are excellent, and reduce tlie amount oi
labor to be done on the farm and ie j the
family7 but the cheaper ways of getting
along will often save a man from sleepless
nights, from mortgages, and a sacrifice of
horse, or a cow, or the plantation itself.
We have been led. to make these remarks
on hearing a man say ho had been pushed
up for money" to pay for a $45 cook stove
and $45 sewing machine. Modern iim
provements cost this man at least $75
more than the old ways cf cooking and
sewing, aud unless he can make a sating
in time and money out of the new metli
ods that will more than compensate for
the change, he has paid that much fori the
naked pleasure of keeping up with! the
times. This is tho nioney view of the sub
ject alone. He has gained a great deal in
the matters of ease and comfort, and if lie
can afford to pay $75 a year for this it is
nobody's business but his own. Nor, j in
deed, if it should cause him trouble, does
it entitle any one to say he has done
wrong. We note it as one of the ways by
which people become poor, and subjected
to pecuniary embarrassments.
The Southern admirers of Col. Pat
Donan, (not long since an editor at Ral
eigh. N. C.,) have been schocked by a re
cent letter of his published in the Chicago
Times, which goes back on his Southern
record. Col. Pat is said to have "conce
ded all that the most violent republican
newspapers of the North had ever said
of the Southern people and Southern In
stitutions." The quotations we have
seen are more than mere concessions.
The Colonel was writing for the northern
market this time, and lie wrote to please
his customers ; and in doing so, gave it
to the south in his peculiar and forcible
style as she rarely ever catches it. It) is
rather bazzardous to tie to just such bril
liant men as this Col. Donan, floating
around promiscuously, mora than all
desirous of an opportunity to air themselves
without regard to consistency. !
