nothing to counteract tlcir operation. In that
event, no one can doubt that the diminution of
business must inevitably lead to a loss of popu

evitably produce a depreciation of property. That
such would be the result of inaction, is as plain
as that the sun shines in the heavens. No one
can be found to dispute it. It is not less plain
that a rail road in any direction would give an
impetus to trad«, add to our population, and ap
preciate the value of property. Such results have
followed elsewhere, and would follow here. Above

What was the Cause?—The Raleigh Stand
ard, some weeks ago, announced that it was able
to explain the cause of the defeat of the Fayette
ville Coal Fields Railroad Bill. We had some
curiosity to hear the Standard’s explanation, and
asked for it. But the Standard is mum. The
explanation might not be judicious.
In the meantime people down here are puzzled
to know how it is that Gen. Dockery had influ
ence enough with the Democracy at Raleigh first
to carry and then to defeat the W’^est«rn Exten
sion involving millions of dollars; to carry the
Cheraw Coal Fields Road, and thus force the
Democracy, as the Wilmington Journal has it,
to “cut the throat of the State;” to control the
legislature generally and particularly; and yet
could not prevail upon it to make a trifling loan
(well secured) of the State’s credit, to aid Fay
etteville in a work generally admitted to be the
most advantageous ever projected in the State.

The Corruption Cases—Another of the im
mortal four, Mr. Edwards of N. Y., resigned his

to escipe hanging, as some one well expresses it.
This makes three of the corrupt crew who have
thus virtually confessed their guilt whilst protest
ing their innocence, viz: Messrs. Gilbert, Matte-
son, and Edwards, all of New York State. In
the case of Mr. Welch of Connecticut, the com
mittee thought the evidence sufficient to justify
his expulsion with the others, but the House was
more charitable aud let him off. The two Re
porters implicated, Simonton aud Triplett, were
also expelled. |

picking his pocKet of his pocket book. An al- j
tercation ensued, ending for the moment in an ^
exchange of cards. Soon afterwards Lee was in- .
formed that he was mistaken in his man, that '
this was a gentleman of high character. Yet
when Hume called on him the next day, with a
friend, and stated his well known position in .so- j
ciety, Lee refused to retract his charge. Hume j
then struck Lee three blows with a cane, and
Lee shot him dead. The occurrence produced ;
great excitement in both cities. A committee of j

from time to time, to render this branch of ths
service eminently efficient
It is to be regretted that the proposition so for
cibly urged by Mr. Dobbin in his annual report
for the construction of additional sloops of war,
with the auxiliary power of steam, which from
their comparative small draft of water might be
serviceable on shallow coasts and within the ports
of our Southern .seaboard, has met with so littie ■
of legislative favor. Unless this increase shall
be made and the old account kept good by razee- ,
ing or repairing tho ships of the line and such old
frigates as the Brandywine. Potomac, Savannah
and others, now lying at our Navy Yard housed-
over and in ordinary, our nominal naval force
must soon dwindle down to half its apparent
strength, and the vulnerable shoal harbors upon
our Southern coast, which cannot be penetrated
and defended by vessels of a larger class, will
continue to be without adequate protection. Since
the successful experiment of razeeing the frigates
Macedonian and Constellation to sloops of the first
class, the opinion prevails very generally that all
the old .ships of the line and the old frigates
should be similarly repaired upon the basis of
the next lower class,—and that the favorite Eng
lish plan should be adopted, of giving to those
which may be so altered, the auxiliary power of
steam, whenever their dimensions will permit it.
Perhaps the best feature of .Mr. Dobbin’s ad
ministration of the Navy Department haa been
his constant and unremitting care for sea
men. The system of honorable discharges for
good conduct, and the law for increased pay of
seamen, adopted by Congress under his recom
mendation,—the system of inspecting supplies
more closely at the several naval stations, accord
ing to the suggestions of the Chief of Bureau of
Provisions and Clothing—that of manufacturing
the medicines required for ship’s use by our Navy
Surgeons, under the advice of the Chief of the
Medical Bureau—and the careful steps which
have been taken to have the companies of ships
more comfortably berthed on board—each and all
have had a tendency to render the seamen of our
Navy not only contented and healthy, but ever
willing for the most perilous service.
Not the least of the monuments which Mr.
Dobbin will leave to mark his Secretaryship, are
the magnificent “six frigates,” and the govern
ment foundries at the navy yards of New York,
Boston, Washington and Norfolk. These will ever
be associated with the recollection of his efficient
It has been too frequently the case that new
Secretaries of the Navy, iustead of taking up the
service at the points of reform and progress at
which their predecessors had arrived, have pre
ferred to begin anew and reconstruct the entire
work for which they are, of course, responsible
to the country. While we would not be obnox
ious to the charge of making impertinent sugges
tions, we must express a hope that the successor
of Mr Diibbiu will commence where his predeces
sor has left off,—that the apprentice system, which
has thus far worked .so well and promises so
much of substantial improvement, may be en-
couniged, and a few of the best of the youths
thus apprenticed to the government, annually
ailmitted to the privileges of .the Annapolis
Academy,—that the cruises of our ship of war
may be limited to two instead of three years: and
that seamen shall not be detained in service on
foreign stations over and beyond the period of
We are well assured from the statements of
the incoming President, already expressed, that
he will not fail to care for the Navy as the guar
dian of our foreign commerce,—and we trust that
the new Secretary, whoever he may be, will in
most respects carry out the work so well begun
by his predecessor.—Journal of Commerce. .
