CEDAR FALLS MANUFACTURING
Though too modest to boast of our en
terprising manufacturing companies, we
must be permitted to express pur heart
felt satisfaction at their prosperity If our
friends abroad wish to know how much
we are doing for the public good, we ad
vise them to come among us, that they
may see and judge for themselves. We
will meet them at! all times with the hand
of welcome extended, and promise them
true southern hospitality. r
The Cotton Factory at Cedar Falls is
.the oldest in this country, and has been
in successful operation for several years.
About twelve months ago, the company
deemed their prospects sufficiently flat
tering to justify an enlargement of the
scale of their operations. They have now
just completed their improvements, in a
style which is seldom equalled in this
country. They have a splendid new brick
building, covered with tin, which, in point
of durability and taste, can be surpassed
by few, if any, in the State. They have
fifty-four looms in operation, one hundred
and twenty operatives in their employ,
and a capital of sixty thousand dollars.
The buildings occupied by the operatives,
numbering some 25 or 30, are all exceed
ingly neat and comfortable, and xwned
by the company. To give an idea of the
virtue, morality and industry that prevail
there, we have only to state that, instead
of that refined place called a " grocery,"
they have decidedly the neatest and most
comfortable church in the county, in which
serviee is regularly performed, and on the
tables of which may be found a good as
sortment of Sunday School books. Lib
erty, Union, Industry, Temperance," is
their motto there, and faithfully do they
act in the spirit thereof. AshbQru Herd.
From the Hillsborough Recorder.
Mr. Editor: It was my privilege to
attend the Rail Road meeting at Provi
dence, in Alamance county, on Thursday
last, and I heartily wish every citizen of
Qrange and Alamance could have been
there. Our esteemed, eloquent and patri
otic citizen ex-Governor Graham, was
there. Mr. Caldwell; jhe Legislator of
Guilford, who, seeing and knowing his
duty to his state dared to do it, was there;
and both did good service. In these de
generate times,;when biost of our Politi
cians are on the alert to see which way
the popular current is setting, that they
may smoothly and quietly glide along
with it to places of profit and honor, the
cardinal principle with them being their
own advancement to high places in the
: State : it is indeed refreshing to find here
and there a noble spirit who has the inde
pendence and patriotism to take the lead
in important measures, and to devote their
time and their talents In endeavoring to
show to their fellow citizens their true in
terest, and to persuade' and urge them to
do their duty to themselves, to each other,
and to their country. The facts and ar
guments brought forward on that occa
sion, and the plain and! candid manner in

a decided opinion. The Judiciary of this

they are by their Legislatures, stand forth
as examples to the world, of purity and un

patriotism. Point to the gentlemen who

MOORE COUNTY. f- ." 1 1
The Standard tells its readers that the ;
" gallant Cald weir had gained largely;
in Moore and Lincoln. This is ft piece
of the Standard's wit, and it is in imita-''
tion doubtless, of that of a wag in Wash
ington, who once said that Silas Wglrt ' .
and Nathaniel P. Tallmadge drank more
brandy and water than any two men in
Congress. The story reached Tallmadg's
cars, and he was highly indignant there
at for he was a member of the Temper,
ance Society, and he called on the &lan
derer for an explanation. -I did say it,
replied the wit, - but 1 meant that Wright
drank all the brandy and you all the wa- '
ter." In this case all the gains have been
in Lincoln and none in Moore. The vote

when it is recollected that Moore bas not

ture since 1844, and that at the last Au
gust election Reid beat Manly 12 votes
in that county, is easy to determine who
drank the brandy and who the water.
The truth is, no other county in the Dis
trict has stood to its tackle like Moore
and a thousand cheers to the gallant
WThigs of our native bailiwick for it, say
we ! While others permitted themselves to

. CATAWBA FACTORY,
One day last week we had the pleasure of
going out and getting a good view of this fac
tory, of its internal and external arrangements.
The morning was very pleasant, and it was
a treat, duly and highly appreciated by us to
leave the dusty streets and pent up air of the
town, and get amid green fields, this breeze of
fanning forests the circuitous and irregular road,
walled in occasionally by dense foliage which
gave a refreshing coolness to the atmosphere
and to catch the unembarrassed currents of air
which swept through the branches and beneath
the bowers nature has spread so lavishly
The country is broken between town and the
factory, but varied with hill and dale as it is, it
is quite picturesque and interesting. The roads
are tolerably good. We found the factory snug
ly ensconced on the side of the noble Catawba
in -a very pretty romantic little cove. The vil
lage of cottages around, pleasantly located on
the shady and verdant knolls, makes the place
wear a cosy air of rural ease and comfort, quite
which they were stated, could not tail to comp- from the People. The Judiciary is,
convince every unprejudiced and inquir
ing mind of the importance of engaging
heart and hand in the greakworkof build
ing the Central; Rail Road. 1 shall not
attempt to give a sketch of the speeches,
but shall content myself with urging eve
ry man who feels an interest in the pros
perity of the State, his own welfare and
the welfare of his children, to wake up
and inquire into the matter ; trusting
that every one who candidly makes the
inquiry will not fail to be convinced that
his interest and duty leads the way, and
that a strong impulse will induce all our
citizens! to come un to the work like men
like worthy sons of the old North State
determined to succeed.
. Mr. Editor, the Central Rail Road can
be built, and must be built ; and that, too,
by the sons of North Carolina. Let eve
ry man lay hold according to his ability
and it is done. Let us look into the mat
ter. We are told that the counties of Or
ange and Alamance must raise 8150,000,
or the work will fail. I say they can do
it ; and do it with ease, if they will. Or
ange, including Alamance, has 1500 Sen
ate Voters. We will take it for granted
that one half of these have not the ability
to subscribe any thing ; yet if the other
half will make the effort it can be done.
There are surely in the counties
3 who can subscribe 3,000
