Collector Bray ton has had an inter
view with Gov. Hampton upon the
subject of the enforcement tif the reve
nue laws of that state. The Governor
insisted that the people were law
abiding, but were angered at the bad
character of the Radicals appointed to
make arrests. Collector Brayton. on
- the other hand, asserted that his force
was i as reputable and hdnest as were
the same class of state officers. .During
-the 'interview no progress was made
toward a better understanding between
federal and state authorities. Sub
sequently, Collector Brayton wrote a
long . letter to thc; Governor, closing
, with a proposition that Hampton should
aiominatc to the Collector; five men to
act as a special force for the Suppres
sion of the illicit traffic in whiskey and
tobacco rn the disturbed region, prom

THE DUPLIN CANAL. 7
In all the early, time previous to the
construction of railroads, Wilmington
never seems to have devised any ave
nues' leading to the rich back-lands,
excepting the ordinary country road
and the- natural water courses, It. is
true that the Cape Fear and its ' tribu
taries formed great natural arteries
through Which products reached the
town, and that there. were such smaller
water courses as the North East, .Town,
Creek, Sholotte and Little River, but
up to thej introduction of railroads no
canal had been cut, no turnpike had
been made, and "from the, rich lands' of
Onslow with its 'oyster beds, the broad
plains of Duplin and Sampson, and the
iproductive regions of the Waccamaw
and Columbus, products either sought
the nearest lauding for flats or waded
laboriously through the deep sands and
miry swamps.to a market. And to this
"uay.it costs-but little more to bring corn
from Cincinnati or oysters from Nor-
, folk than it does to get the same kind
of articles the forty miles from Onslow.
Wilmington does not seem to have ap
preciated the-fact that improved . high-
J ways diverging into the : surrounding
j country are as necessary to tlie growth
of a trading town as .are the great
arteries of the human body tQ its growth.
That sagabious ancestry of which Wil
miugtonians boast, not without grounds,
evidently had not learned how Rome
became great by stretching her solid
road-bed from the Tiber to Brundusium,
and een beyond the Balkans to the
mouths of the Danube, and over the
Oppenines to the mouths of the Bo; and
how- Carthage , became opulent by
- .stretching gigantic lines of communica
tion to the heart of Africa, within the
shadoY' of the mountains of tbVMoon.
f But it is never too late to learn, and
several gentlemen, having ascertained
that North East river could be short
ened 113 miles, by cutting a canal from
"Meggy's Island" to the mouth . of
Goshen Creek, , and at I the same time
draining about 70,000 acres of the finest
lands-in America, and making tributary
to the trade of Wilmington ." several
hundred thousand more,1 they proceeded
to procure a charter for the Duplin
Canal Company .and to make a pie
hminary survey. The examination was
made chiefly by Mr. A R. Black, a'
gentleman at home in matters of this
sort. Perhaps his judgment as to the
feasibility" of this canal, .would be ac
cepted as readily by business , men as
that of any man in this region. He has
made a report on the subject which
may be considered by some as a little
sanguine as to results. -He anticipates
that " a grtat tidal wave" of prosperity
will roll in upon Duplin when this
canal is complete!, and ,that a great
benefit will come t Wilmington. Biit
he supports his assertions by facts and
figures regarding the feasibility of cut
ting the canal, the value of the land
to be reclaimed by draiijiiug.thc timbers
of various kinds which jmay be brought
to this market, aDd the'saving in trans
portation from the. adjacent, region. It
.is estimated after close observation that
hc 31 miles of canal to!
be cut. between
the mouth of
Peggy h Island and
fcroshen will have a
fall of 21 feet.
Irhe North East river iilo be used from
the former place t4 Wilmington, a dU
tanco of about 48 miles of water
navigable for steamers.! )
There can be no doubt that this en
terprise ought to commend itself to the
business interests of Lthi's city and
D:iplin and Pender. From the prompt
ness with which the people of Duplin
pledged themselves to! aid in ivS coj
struction,; and from the "character of
the' gentlenfen who are giving cr;.-j:d
eration to the subject in, this city, it
would appear that! this! important
of transportation will fwithiii ;i
time' be . pu h'edto-completion..
ANOTHER SHIP WRECK ON Til S
NORTII C AltOLINA COAiST.
On the 29th off January the .steam
ship Metropolis, 878 tons," leftf . Phila
delphia for Para, Brazil, loaded with
railroad iron and supplies for a railroad
in . Brazil, and having on board 218
passengers. As she proceeded from the
Capes of the Delaware; she encountered
heavy gales, sprung a leak whiclFwas
beyond control and wa3 finally beached
near the Currituck Light House, about
20 or 30 miles from the scene of the
disaster to the Huron. Nearly a hun
dred lives were lost. The yessel struck
at 0:45 P. M., on the 31st, and went to
pieces under the. effects of thp gale at 5
P. M. of the next day. It is stated that
no aid was received ; from the' Life
Saving service. ' t , V
' A statement is made that the steamer
was unsea worthy.
The Board of Underwriters does not
fippear.to have had a-fgood opinion of
the vessel, and are particu larly struck
with the fact that she had her nairie
changed front the Stars and Stripes to
that of Metropolis witjiout the requisite
act of Congress.' Thej Board has infor
mation that she, was on the dock last
month in New York, and then had her
yellow metal taken. off. but after "the !
hull was caulked and painted the
sheathing was not replaced. The Me
tropolis underwent the government in
spection in New York, The Captain,
when he got his clearing papers in
Philadelphia, '.exhibited a certificate
signed by Assistant Inspector Craft, of
the port of Newj York, certifying that
she had been inspected and tested, and
found to be entirely seaworthy, with a
capacity of 250 , passengers, and life,
saving apparatus for -that number.
Mr. George D. Lunt, of Lunt Bratlw
crs, denies the report that ti e Metropolis.
was laden belowj the ;water-mark v.hcn
she left Philadelphia.! Her. mean draft,
he says, was 12 feet.j and1 she was en
titled to draw 10 feet of water. Capt.
Darling, of the Allantic Mutual In
surance Company, who inspected the
vessel immediately prior to her depar
ture, found her jn good sea-going "con
dition. She is recorded on the books
of the company as - having undergone
repairs early in January, when ner .
metal was removed and her bottom
caulked . She1 was also supplied with a
new shaft and. painted. The wreck is
not attribute tj any drawbacks in her
condition, but solely to the terrific gale
of Thursday evening. The Metropolis
was built in Mystic, Conn,, , in 1861.
She was rebuilt in. 1S7L In the Record
of American mid Foreign Shipping she is
marked A 1, with a star.' Until lately
he vessel was engaged in the Bermuda
trade, and made a great mauy success
ful, voyages in extremely rough welather.
A correspondent of the N. Y. Tanks
writes : :;; j- j ; ," .' j ,'
Your correspondent has spoken with
several of the i survivors, all ofwhoin
peak in the highest terms of the un
daunted energy of Capt. Anker, and
attribute the loss of the Metropolis to
circumstances which no mortal power
;ould control. They also state that the
vessel ?as in a 'sinking condition when
she as run ashore, and" that that -was
the only course by .which it wa hoped
any lives could be saved: Thesurvivors
are sadlv in need of clothincr. nianv ot
them having barely escaped with their
lives. The beach tor two miles is
strewn with dead bodies, many of which
are being temporarily buried," Ivghtof
the fourteen raifr&qul ;tre neu are among
those lost. t I V i
We make the following extis.cis fVou)
the Herald report of Sunday :
DESTITUTION OF, THE SXVEi).
It is beyond the power of description
to picture the misery and wretchedness
of the rescued, whose pitiable plight ia
in nakedness and utter destitution can
not be portrayed.5 They were' huddled
together in. groups to keep warmth in
their bodies. Numbers of theni were
wounded and bruised, and all of them
were hungry. The story of the wreck
is one of horror. It speaks wifch no Un
certain words, and it will cause a just
and righteous indignation against those
HUL uio -mercy vl lue ocean
waves 250 lives in a vessel that was" ia
every respect unseaworthy, that was" as
rotten as punk, and that could well be
likened to a death trap. Owners, con
tractors and . United States inspectors
are responsible, and they should be held
to a strict account,- . '
' NEW WORK Us CONGRESS.
A like censure is due to the miserable
apology of what is termed United States
life saving stations. They have on these
two memorable occasions of the Huron
and Metropolis wrecks been proved
utterly worthless. Seven men at each
station, who have to patrol miles of
.bcacli, with no appliances in the shape
of horses or teams for transporting their
.apparatus ! It is a crime unpardonable
that cries aloud for redress. f T
(possible to have used a surf boat.
i As a seafaring man, and' one accus
tomed to the E-urf, I can truthfully say
that at no time during the day, up to 2
.o'clock, was It impossible or eyen extra
hazardous for a surf boat to take off a
line and establish communication-with
the steamer and the shore. The lives
of over one hundred men and two
females maybe justly attributed to the
culpable negligence and inefficiency of
the life saving service. s
Waiting in vain for help. :
The scene tliatf followed beggars de

crowd of human beings not one that I
could see had lost his presence of mind,
ami no panic? occurred, as would natu
rally Le expected from such a crowd in
sujch immicerit danger. This was chiefly
duo 'to the coolness and bravery o'i
Cantai n Ankers and the first and second
olliccrs of" the ship, Air. Dickman and
Mr. Oez3ris. Maiiy of the passengers
jumped overboard and struck for shore
shortly after we bcachid, but the most
of them stayed on board, expecting
assistance from the United States life
saving station, which did not, for want
of facilities, Teach us until many hours
after we were stranded, and when the
crjew arrived they were not able to assist
us. They nKide one attempt to throw
a line to us, but it dropped wide of its
m trk. r Another" . attempt was made
which succeeded in throwing it across
tlie inain yard. The men proceeded to
drav it tothedeckjWhenthelineparted.
I heard one or two other shots fired
from the mortar, but no line came. At"
this time the whole after' part of the
ship with the mizzeamast was carried
off and -nearly all oi the hurricane deck.

The conduct Of the passengers at this

obeyed any order given,- and all seemed
intent upon securing the best means for
the 'general safety. In a short time,
however, the frequent breaks of the
surf and accumulating evidences of the
ship's speedy dissolution created a great
degree of restlessness among the pas
sengers, which Ivas soon, however, dis
pelled by the calm and gallant bearinsr
of Captain Ankers and thoss attached
to the ship. 7 j
Jt is gratifying to recount that anjid
: all the scenes of woe and death -that
all on board exhibited a heroism and
coolness worthy of the highest adffljra

regarding the wrecked vessel said:
'The Metropolis was docked in this
city in the last week of December, and
examined by surveyors of several, if
not all, of the marine insurance com-,
paniesl On the 31st of December I re
.quired of her owners that her propeller
shaft should be uncoupled and with
drawn that I could decide to what
extent its oxidation had extended. On
the morning of the 1st of January I
visited her and condemned the shaft,
the owners very- freely acquiescing in
the decision, although it involved a
serious expense and loss of time. Upon
a survey of herhnli the surveyor of the
Atlantic Mutual, Insurance Company,
who has not a superior in his profession
in any country, reqHired the metal from
her. bottom to be removed and it to be
recaulked, which was forthwith done.

"From reliable accounts, it appears
Ahat with iron rails, tools, flour, coal

880 or 900 tons, and as a vessel of her
dimensions and model give "an average

Gen. Grant and His Travels Abroad.
The incognito of Gen. Grant is cue
that no one will, respect. He "declines
all honors and attentions, so far as he
can do so without rudenessand is
especially indifferent to the parade and
etiquette by which his journey is sur
rounded. It is amusing, knowing Gen..
Grant's feelings on this subject, to read
the articles in English and home papers
about his; craving for precedence and
his fear lest he may not have the proper
seat at table and the highest number
of guns. Gen. Grant has declined eveiy:
attention of7an official -character thus
far, except those whose non-acceptance
would have been misconstrued. When
he arrives at a port his habit is to go
ashore with his wife and son, see .what
is to be seen, and drift about from
palace to picture gallery, like any other
wandering, studious American doifig
Europe. Sometimes the officials are too
prompt for him; but generally, unless
they call' by appoiutment, they find the
General absent? This matter is almost
too trivial to write about, kut there is
no better business for a chronicler thlm
to correct wrong" iuipressiohs before
creating new' ones. Here, for instance,
is an editorial article from an American
newspaper which has drifted into our
wardroOift oyer these Mediterranean
seas. The j journal is a responsible
newspaper, with a wide circulation. Jt
infpfms us that General; Grant travels
with a princely, retinue; that he is en
abled to do so because the men who
fattened on the corruptions of his ad
ministration gave him a share of their
plunder. He went to the Hotel Bristol
in Paris. He took the Prince of Wales'
apartments. He never asks the cost of
his rooms at hotels, but throws money
about wiih a lavish hand. These are
the statements which one reads here in
a .. ii - j! yi . .
zen; je nas one servant aud a courier.
He never was in the Prince of Wales'
