Th. aitnatioo of HiU.boro, in tb. ri- , cinity of th fioeat tobaooo grovinf eonn try in the world its eaay aeoeaaibUity to the farmers of an immense section of fer tile country, by means of the old estab lished roads leadiog into tbe town from ery direction, and its facilities for trans portation to the great markets of the world, gira it many striking advantages, which, with additional capita) and enter prise, should at once make it one of the leading canters for tbe mannfactars and sab of tobacco. " Another point, that, in oar estimation should hare oooaideTable weight with in telligent dealers in, and eonaomen of to bacco, is the fact that EQlsboro is almost nneqaalad for healthfolneai, and therefore, the tobacco manufactured berets not ma nipulated by sickly operatiTes; conse quently there is no danger of it spreading contagious diseases. Tbe prejudice againm tobacco, cigars, et made in unhealthy localities, in becoming quite general, and justly so. Consumers hare good reasons to avoid the use of tobacco made in such localities. They know that the contagious diseases of unhealthy towns are often box ed np with the goods made there, and shipped throughout the laid. There are at present four factories lo cated in the town, owned by as many dif ferent firms. They are all doing a good business, and it is gratifying to learn that their sales are steadily increasing from year to year. The value of the tobacco manufactured here during the past season was abont $160,000. Tbe prospect for a decided increase in business was never o good as at the present time. The low est estimate which we hare heard any of onr manufacturers give of the value of next years business, was $00,000, just double that of the past year. Judging by the extensive preparations being made, we will not be the least surprised to see it go considerably beyond $500,000. The above estimates hare reference only to the factories which have been in opera tion during the past year. We have heard rumors, which we regard well founded, of new enterprises Jto be tarted here this yeir, which will materially increase the vtjmn and extent of our tohuulxaie. IJelow we give short sketches of the firms at present engaged in the manufac ture of tobacco in HilUboro. JAMES Y. WHITTED Is the oldest manufacturer in the town. ' having commenced operations in 1869. He has kept constantly at the business since that time except while serving three years in the army, and also for a short time in '66. Mr. Whitted's long experi ence in the business has enabled him to manufacture some remarkably fine grades of tobacco. To him is due, in no small measure, the unrirallod reputation which the Hillsboro plug tobaooo now enjoys. Experts, and others well qualified to judge, pronounce the Hillsboro fine plug tobacco superior to that made inJDurham, orany otber place. The numerous First Premiums, Medals and Diplomas which Mr. Whitted has re osived at various times, affords flattering and convincing evidence of the excellence of the grades of tobacco manufactured at his works. In addition to silver medals received at North Carolina State Fairs, in 1371 and T3, he has bees awarded first premium at North Carolina and Alabama State Fairs, and also at Fairs held in Sa vannah and Atlanta, Georgia. His factory is conveniently located near the Railroad depot, and is a large two-story and a half building, 34 feet in width by 110 feet in length. This season he has employed thirty -seven hands in making the different grades of bright plug and twist tobacco. Amcpg the principal brands manufac tured by Mr. Whitted are the following : .Gold. Ambrosia," "Rising Star," .KMd North State," "Nat. Macon," "Cape Fear," "Okaneke," "Magnolia," "Tar Heel," "Our "Charles Day,' Gov. "Allen," etc. The above brands are all chewing tobao oo, to the manufacture of which Mr. Whit ted haw to the present time solely confined hi attention. But he has recently com pleted arrangements to place on the mar ket s Mw brand of fine smoking tobacco which will be known as the "Harry Lee.'' He will commence operations on this brand n a few weeks, and we confidently expect to see the;4'Harry Lee" become favorite with the smoking public. Mr. Whitted has done a good business this season, and it is pleasing to note that he is enlarging his facilities ibr this year, when he will be prepared, sad expect to do a larger business than ever. H. P. JONXS. Tbe tobaeco works of EL P. Jones b also located near tbe BaU-Boad depot. It is 'a large two- story building, 40 feet in width, by 160 feet in length, and has a ca pacity of turning out one million pounds of tobacco annually. Major Jones com imbmiI business in 1871. and has since then confined his attention to the menu faoture of smoking tobaooo. The well knows Tar Beet granulated smoking, and a stin finer brand known as the M Oo coneechee, n rranalated, art mad at this bctory, kod lao two branJj of ion cat ; rooking. In Addition to the bore, he ill shortly introduce a new 'brand of. long cot nook in g, which U mainly intended ' for NortLem trade, If aj. Jones' sale laxt aeaaon amonnt to aboot 60,000 pounds, hi prospect for a largely inert avd bioi D6M this year, are particularly good. Re cent arrangcmeaU which he has made induces him to believe that his torireM mill nmnu nnnrcwAtntA rtnuknri iint j h- . . ..... J. M. Corbin commenced business st his present location in 1879. Previous to that, however, he has had an extensive ex perience in the tobaooo trade, hav np been raised up in th business, and thereby be coming a thoTigh manufacturer. H saa Mfautlll m mil the difforent grades f plug and twist chewing tobacco, in which ha has done a fair busiies from the start. His factory is a two-story building 40 feet wide by 70 feet long, and affords employ ment to from 36 to 40 operatives. The amount manufactured hut season will reach between sever ty and eighty thou sand pounds. The outlook for an increase of business in 1880 is considered good. VEBB & 00. The firm of Webb k Co. is eon posed of James Webb, Jr., Joseph C Webb and Geo. C. Corbin. This firm was ertabl'bed in 1878, and although two year- Lavc not elapsed, they have Already acq;:ire) ':on - siderable lead of many older manufactur era.

The Winston Leader says the railroad fever is reviving in Stokes. Appointments have been made from the loth to the 83d, and Gray, Morehead, Caldwell, Jouoe and King are tbe railroad talkers. Postmaster-General ey has promised to rectify the matter of the Northern mails missing connection at Weld on. The Charlotte Observer reports that re sponsible capitalists in New York city propose to take the Western North Caro lina Railroad off the hands of the State. There has been a great increase in the exports of railroad iron from the United States. In September 1878, they amounted to thirty-eight tons, while in the same month in 1879 eight thousand two hun dred and thirty -one tons were exported.

The south will be solid for anv good Democrat except Mr. Tilden. This is the testimony of all the southern Democratic revnbers. In regard to the best candidate for the Democrotic party next year, the southern members say that the best man or the best two men to head the ticket are those who are most certain to carry New York and Indiana, which two states are still looked upon as reliably Democartic, while their votes, to gether with those of the south, will insure the election of a Democartic president HASOOCK AID BATABD.

Mr. Hutch- ius is a man w no is not apt to commit himself to political movement without having a definite object in view, or with out knowing thoroughly what he is about. Before he started the movement in favor of M. Seymour he took a run out west and had an interview with M. Hendricks, and I am informed he also paid a visit to Mr. j Seymour himself. At any rate I have it j from himself that Mr. Seymour's physical health is such as to warrant his nomina tion, and that Mr. Hendricks is willing to accept second place with Mr. Seymour. There is a curious rumor here in regard to to the Sevmnur movement. Tb ttnrv the Seymour Purl p iracir-car, wiuieeisiiisi ue , I a -v.l ... .li.-l iL. is not able to discharge uie uunes oi me presidential ottice even if elected, but that lie is willing to allow the use of his name at : the head of the ticket for the sake of uni- ting the purty in New York and to insure victory, on condition that if he shall be elected he will be permitted to resign the j office after lie hftg been inaugurated, in which event of course the successful can- did ate for the vice-presidency will succeed 1 'o.the presidency. It is further alleged : that this understanding is entirely accep- table to Mr. Hendricks, and the chief j reason why he is willing to run second j with Mr. Seymonr, although he has said , positively within a very few days that he absolutely will not consent to run second again with Mr. Tilden. This story has most of the attributes of a Washington ca nard, and should be taken with a very large grain of salt. The project is, how ever, seriously talked of by politicians here, and the story is interesting as one of the political straws which is floating on the enrrent at the outet of this president making session. SCIArOB THUBMAB. There is very little talk of Mr. Thurman as a possible candidate now among the Democratic members, and yet it is not at all certain that he is out of the field. Gen eral Butler says that Senator Thurman is still in the list of possible Democraic can didates, and General Butler's political sa gacity is of the very best. The most seri ous obstacle in Senator Thurman's way is his own state, which, it wiD be remember ed, refused to take his name to the last na tional convention. The trouble is, there is a very strong anti-Thurman faction in the Democratic party in Ohio, and it is bound that Thurman shall not be the bresidential nominee. r. TIICIB. There is not much talk about Mr. Til den, except that evervbodv savs, or near ly everybody, that aa is altogether out of 1 the question, inasmuch as the election In , h h not carry his ova state. Soma of tbe longest-beaded Qsniocrata, however, asy quietly that Mr. Tfden h not shsl vad vet and may cause s great deal of trouble be fore the question ef a candidate is settled. There is an imoreasion that he has pretty i much given up thi idea of runnig himself, but means to name the-oandidate.

There are no shorts or middlings left, only bran and flour being made.
