to make the ' vessel long enough to rido

Some days since we j mentioned the fact
that tbe surveying parity of this road had
reached Pittsboro. We learn from the
Itecard that the people th;re are wrcntly
elated at tho prospect of having a railroad
to pass through that good old town. The
surveyors have been busy ruuning the ex
perimental lines, and I their presence has
stirred up quite a railroad fever. The sur
veying party consists ofj Col. Fleming
uaruner, ciuer engineer ; It. J. i.atta, tran
sitman; A. Shorter Caldwell, leveler; E.
A. Hobbius, draughtsman W. J. Dorao,
transit fodnian ; and George McGehee and

having been ou tbe survey of the North
Carolina Itailroad thiijty years ago, aud is
thoroughly posted as to his! duties.

Rircr near Moore's mill, at the mouth of
Robertson's Creek, and up tho vallev of
said creek to Pittuboro, passing through
tne northern portion of the town, just
above the potttotfice. Tho total distance
front Goldbora to Pittsboro is 76 miles,
and a rajlreadcan be built, at a small ex
pense, as but little eradina will be neces
sary along most ef the route, and the first
twenty am lea from Goldsboro is a straight
line.' The surveyors are now running the

some idea of the , progress that has been
made in this country in the "culture and

industries of thia country :
In noaae of our thousand industries,
perhaps, has greater -progress been maie
during the past fifteen or twenty years than
in the manufacture of silk and the pro
ducts of eilk. Beginning in a small war
in an adjacent Jersey eity the gentleman
who engaged in this new and untried ex
periment have steadily persevered until to
day the leoms f Paterson are as renowned
as-tboscrof Lyons and the fabrics they send
forth are equal if not superior to anything
