They had a very-serious fire - alarm in

from the Observer. .Fortunately, no great
loss was sustained, and better still, the
incendiaries w ere the next day discover
ed and are now in jail. Two little negro
boys were the cause of a city's distur
bance for a whole, night. They first set
fire to a bale of hay in John Wadsworth's
livery stable. It was discovered in time
to save the premises. They then renew
ed the attempt to burn out the establish
ment by starting a fire in another place.
This was also discovered and put out.
They then went to., the house of Capt.
Stitt, and fired a-bale of hay stored under
his house. This he discovered and put
out. Still not satisfied, they attempted
to-fire Capt. M. Jordan's residence.
The city rung with alarm's during the
entire night. The fire companies were
constantly ou the run, and the Hornet's
Nest Riflemen were called out and patroll
ed the city until day.
Charlotte was undoubted lively . all
night, and will doubtless do what she can
to prevent a recurrence of such a dis

A bill was introduced into the Senate,
last week, by Mr. Kern an for celebrating

a vote of 134 to 97. 1

Senator Bayard, and his speech, while
containing all the good to be said of the
dead, was, in tone and manner, a stinging

The liailroad Question in North
- ' Carolina. "
In anything we may say in this article
we wish it to be understood, we are not
actuated by the slightest hostility to the
West and its important interests. So
far from this we are extremely anxious to
see the unquestioned resources of that
favored section developed, and ?to see it
put in connection with the world beyond
by the most substantial railways. We.
shall regard it a great day for tlie West
and the State at largo when tlie road is
completed to Paint Rock. But whilst
we say this most sincerely we fail to see
the many good results unmixed with
evil that appear to dazzle the 1, eves of
those who are eager to accept Mr. Best's
proposition, the main features of which
we gave yesterday. Thus failing, we
are compelled to oppose the sale of the
Western North Carolina Road on any
such terms as the New York Syndicate
According to our apprehension there is
nothing so alluring in the Best proposi
tion as to make our people agree to the
sale when it is scrutinized. We cannot
go into the matter at length. We briefly
note, first, that tho Best proposition
gives $850,000 stock to j tke vState of
North Carolina, but pray what is that
worth with a mortgage of $ 12,500 to the
mile overlapping and hiding; it T It
would , probably be worth no more than
so much waste paper.
Then again, what- would be the effect
of such a salef It would be controlled by
a foreign company, and would Je run in
the interest, pure and simple, of the
Richmond & Danville Railroad, its de
pencies and co-conspirators. It would
give Richmond the vantage ground ou
the north, whilst on tlie south -Charleston
will control the situation.
If tlie sale were made it would cer
tainly make North Carolina tributary to
those 1 States whilst injuring j many of
the largest towns. It may be protested j
that such results would not follow, but
after viewiug the-subject fa evenr possi
f.w o" w-;aiwio vo us, we are sansoeu
hat if thi sale were consummated, in the
4nd it would be disastirojnijto ! the inter
eats of many Importantf sections of the
And now vre wish to add a1 remark or
pro in tlie most distinct ma6ner. "First.
then, we -protest In behalf of .the people
lIniiWJton, the C?apo;. Fear sec-:
tion,' against the sale of the Western
North Carolina Road to "any foreign cor
poration. ; j We protest against handing
over tlie interests of eur people into the
hands of foreign conorators. We protest
igainst cutting ourselves' off ' from all
power to protect ourselves against the
unfriendly rnlings and manipulations of
men who seek to build np the interests of
other States to tlie great detriment of
the people of North Carolina.
j We insist that if the "Western North
Carolina ) Railroad is to j bo sold that
Korth Carolinian be allowed tin on port h
nity to bid forthe same that j they have
at least equal chancts with men living be
yond the State. - ' ' r I I '
j We hiive reason for- believing that a
number of North Carolinians, have the
matter of purclmsing the Western Cam
Una Road under consideration, and that
they will offer to buy it in case the State
is willing; to sellr-the. State, however, to
supply them with a stipulated number of
convicts.! In-due time Gov. Jarvt and
tlie Directors of the Road will be address
ed upon the subject, and if aale shall be
deemed necessary or desirable, then peo

been heard from. The road to Paint

The loss is very heavy amounting to
between twenty and twenty five thou

insurance of but five thousand dollars.
All the passenger coaches of the compa

twenty in number, were .destroyed to
