The celebration of the carnival has also ex

Tbejiccounts from the. agricultural districts

that the Urge stocks of wheat, formerly held

We learn that a cabinet council was held
upon the 19th, at which it was resolved to is
sue a comprehensive memorandum of ihe Ger

contain the views of Prussia upon the whole
question involved in the revival of the old Ger
man confederation during he past year.
We learn from official reportsl thai the com

ihe increase of manufactured gobds.
HESSE CASSElj.
We lake the following terse but graphic de
scription ol the slate of affairs in Hesse Cassel.
The political conflict seems loi be degenerat
ing into a series of vulgiir quarrels helween
Prince, officers, ministers,; chambers and sub.
ordinales, who abuse each other w ith Provin-
cial intensity. The truth of whiich cannot be
doubted when we read ihe following :
' Latest proclamation from Baron II ay man
to the officers of the Hessian arrny of Cassel."
This Hessian, it should be' remembered, is a' re
lalion of the Austrian butcher. ( .

RALEIGH AND GASCON ROAD.
We learn from a reliable ource that unless
a moveni ent is made to resusritate this load,
that at the end of a month, operations on t will
be discontinued. We do nol use the language
of exaggeration when we say, ibis is an appall.
ing fact for Petersburg. It wjill not only f ut off
a vast trade which we now enjoy, but will de-
prive usi ot all chance to secure any portion of
the trade which the Central Road will open in
North Carolina. Let the Raleigh and Gaston
Road go down, and a Road will be made from
Greensboro', N. C., to Danville. These are
facts; and tbe question is, will we sipp y the
proper remedy ? Will we tome forward and
doonr part, in again putting I le Road in tirder 7
We have heard a good deal said about clubs of
ten. twenty and thirty being ormed to take ibal
.portion of ihe Stock which Petersburg should
SQouiaer, oui we pave not neara yet inai as ma
ny as three have been found J'ho were willing
lo put up the proportionate amount. In our pa
per of Saturday we published the adveitise
ment of one of the first wholesale bouses in
Petersburg, stating that they will make an
rangement by which merchants residing; in the
upper Counties of North Carolina can receive
their goods direct, and at as low rales as if
sent by Raleigh."
Now, what a tale is here
told ! We know
the firm will do what they promise. They have
Ihe enterprise and t he means to do as long as if
can be done. But how long
until the Raleigh and Gaston
will that be ! Just
Road is down be
yond redemption, or placed under the control of
those whose interests are rival to those of Pe
tersburg. Should the first contingency happen,
'the upper Counties of North Carolina will
gel iheir goods, not by wagons, but by th Dan
yille Railroad, which will get access into Car
olina, and tap tbe " upper Counties" at the very
fountain of our tfade with them. In the event
of the second contingency, we shall be, obliged
to. trust to the lenjder mercies of those who,
with every interest in the world to divert trade
and travel from us, will possess a voice! in the
management of the Road sufficiently potential
to enable them to attain their ends. Again
we say : "these are facts," and we should be
glad to see a sample of the logic that will con.
travene them, i
We regret to have in the above article,
which we copy from the " Peleraburg Intelli
gencer," (whose Editor, we are certain as
much regretted the necessity of penning, as we
did the reading of it,) a Confirmation of the ap
prehensions we have latterly felt, that Peters
burg would fail to do her part towards the re
building of the Raleigh and Gaston Rail Road
and for what reason ? Simply because it is the
belief of a certain portion of her citizens that
Norfolk, whose interests are rival to those of
Petersburg," will thereby divide with them tbe
rade of North 'Carolina 1 ; Without flopping
or carmg to enquire how far this may be so,
we may venture to state as ' fixed facts'" 1st.
That the re construction of the Raleigh and
CJaston Road, in connection with the Central
Uoad, will open both upon Norfolk and Peters
burg, a largely increased amount of trade
that it will augment greatly tbe business ot
Petersburg, whatever it consequences upon
that of Norfolk ; and 2nd That the digicom inn.
ance of operations upon the Road will !certaih;
ly prove a fatal blow lo the traffic of Peters
burg with a large section of North Carolina.
Let the Road go down, and, as the Inteili.
gencer suggests, our upper Counties! will net
Iheir goods l.y way of the Rail Road that will
inevitably be buiSt from Greensboro' to Dan
vine, connecting with Richmond. Let the
Road go down, and, so far as this immediate
section of the State is concerned, it; will be
much easier for us to obtain our Groceries
dec, by having them shipped to Wilmington
from Baltimore or New York, and thence by
the Cape Fear to, and a Plank Road to this
place from, Fayetteville, or even by waggoning
from the latter place, than by way of Peters
burg, the n. With the Central Road completed,
how easy will it be to get all arliclesideslined
for Wake, Johnston, dec, by that route? If
Petersburg, therefore, is blind lo her own in
terests, she alone is to blame.
It seems quite strange, by the way, that,
while Petersburg is thus deterred from contri
buting her quota to this important work, thro'
jealousy of Norfolk, the latter place does not
seem to be at all anxious to avail herself of
the superior advantages which, it is alleged,
will enure to her behalf. That Norlolk will be
a great gainer by the rebuilding of the Road,
and its connection with .the Seaboard Road,
there can be no question. Th wonder then,
is, that, with such a field of competition for a
vast and varied tiade open before them, both of
our Virginia sister-towns do not entr upon it
with alacrity and energy.
iAnd what shall we say of the Counties along
ihe route? what of Raleigh? Are we all
asleep? Has such fatuity taken possession of
our minds, that we cannot perceive! what an
appalling blow the discontinuance of the Road
will inflict upon our interests ? Rat. Reg.
. A VISIT TO THE MEXICAN ,
CATHEDRAL.
A correspondent of the Union, writing from
the city of Mexica says. ! !
One day last week I spent a whole ran;.
ning(six hours) in examining the Cathedral
and its treasures. By special favor ihey show,
ed us every thing, among others the custodian,
in which the consecrated bot is exposed on cer
tain occasions. It cost) $500,000, and you
will not wonder at this when I inform you that
it is full four feet high made of solid) gold, and
studded with precious stones. The pedestal is
a foot and a half square, inlaid with: diamonds
and rubies. At each corner is the golden fig.
ure of an angel, exquisitely carved. Around
his waist and neck are slnns of the finest
e j
pearl. His wings are inlaid or covered with
diamonds, rubies, and emerald. In hi? right
hand he holds sheaves ofjwheat, made of yellow
topaz ; in bislett, hunches ot grapes, made of
amethysts. The shaft is also sluded with dia-
monds, rubies, and emeralds. I he upper part.
containing the host, is made to represent the
sun, and is a foot and a half in circumference ;
the rays that emanate on one side afe made en
tirely of the first water, beginning with some of
large size, and gradually lapering ofF. The
cross that surmounts the top is also on ibis

Corruption in Neib York Legislqiure
A nice mess they've had in the Iiegis
lature of this State: A Bill was present-
i - j -
ed more effectually t) suppress gambling.
The Sergeant atj Arms, undertook to de
feat the passage of lhe Bill, and the Gam
bling Houses in N. Y. City were to fur
nish him the moey necessary for the pur
pose. Accordingly, he went to work on
those members hy whom he expected to
kill the measure, and bought up three of
them at 8125 each. The three bought
men composing .the Committee on hills,
suppressed the bill in question; and gave,
the Sergeant at arms notice of their ina
bility to reach it in lime; which notice
was also the signal for the payment of
the corruption money. But the whole
thing jeaked oqt, anj the guilty parties
are now in trouble.
O3 A Letter jn the Philadelphia North
American, from Charleston, says "the
sentiment of resistance and revolution in

of the people which 'existed previous to

Town Ordinances Repealed. We Irani
from a private letter, dated the 31st. ult..
from one of the Commissioners of the
Town of Salisbury, that the Ordinances
on the subject of Small Vox, and in rela

all repealed at a meeting of the Board on
Saturday last. By these Ordinances our
citizens were not only prohibited from vis-
ittng Salisbury, but the people of Salis-
hury were also forbid coming to CharlottP.
We are glad, therefore and especially
so, as we learn several persdns of that

may now do so, without risking their per

THE TRUTH IN A NUT SHELL.
, The Washington correspondent of the
Pennsylvanian speaks a deal of truth in
this little paragraph:
"Talk of the settlemet of the slave
question. The idea is absurd. It wjll
never be settled as long as a demagogue
can ride into office through its agitation.
If the South were to tie its hands and seal
its lips, make no resistance to anti-slavery
preachers and ngro stealers, and make
no attempt to. reclaim their property when
robbed of irrthe agitators of the North
the Greelys. and Garrisons and Abhy
Kelleys would not be satisfied. Then
they would go in strongest, for arming the
slave for assassination. "
PLANK HO AD STOCKHOLDERS
; MEETING.
A friend writing from Statesville, on
the subject of the meeting of the stock
holders of the Salisbury and Taylorsville
Plank Uoad Company, says:
Col. Thos. A. Allisrn was called the
Chair, and Mr. R. F. Simonton appointed
Secretary. The Charter was then read,
and proof adduced that advertisement had
been made of the meeting of the stock-
holders according to the provisions of the I
charter. An election was then gone into
for Directors. On the first bIlot, Messrs."
Wm. Murphy. D. A. Davis, Col. T. A Al
Kson, and S. R. Bell, were found to be
elected. H. C. Jones, J. I. Shaver, E. D.
Austin, and 0. G. Foard, were run. but
neither had a majority, whereupon anoth
er vote was taken between E. D. Austin
and O. G. Foard, (the other two being
withdrawn) which resulted in the election
of Mr. Foard. A committee was then
appointed to draw up the necessary by
laws for the regulation of the Company,
consisting of H. C. Jones. N. Boyden, J.
H. McLaughlin, James E. Kerr, and .
P. Caldwell, who are to make a report of
the same at an adjourned meeting which
is to he held at Salisbury, on the first
Tuesday in mav next. The Directors are
to meet at the house of Mr. 0. G. Foard, !
on next Fndav, to elect, a President.

WE ARC (iLAD TO HEAR IT.
The New York Courier and Enquirer, in
the course of an Article on the consequences
of the agitation of ihe Slavery question, makes
the following remarks :
The time for nipn to reason calmly upon
their part, has fully arrived ; and we now call
upon the merchant! of o:ir ci'y to look about
i hem and observe the actual elate of affairs.
We do not ak I hem to lake our Word for "any
thing ; hut we do demand them, to look at the
facts as they . are, and arrive at conclusions
based upon the fads a they discover them ; and
we boldly assert ih'jjl sneh investigation will
lead lo the following conclusions :
First. There-has been a very large falling
off in the Consumption of domestic manufac
tures by the South.
Second. There has been a very large fall
ing off in t'ne Spring tiade general, ofihe South
with this riiv.
Third. The diminished consumption of do-
mes'ic manufactures lv the South, arises Irom
ihe deliberate charge made by
the Journal of
Com merce nd backed by iis co laborer in fo
rnenting agitation, that the manufactures of N.
England were encouraging outrages upon the
, lights ot the South and disunion iie.
Fourth. The falling fT of the Spring trade

Sketches of Xorth Carolina. We hi
the pleasure, a few days since, of seeing
Col. Wheeler, author of the forthcommg
Sketches of North Carolina, on his way
f rom Philadelphia to his Ume in Lincoln.
Col. Wheeler took his work North with
the view of having some engravings pre
pared, and to ascertain the terms on which
be could have it printed and bound. The
work will be published in two volumes of
about 300 pages each, and will be deliv-
ered at the low price ol one dollar per
volume.
Col. Wheeler has prepared a plan, in
the shape of a tree, showing the origin of
the Counties ofthe State and the date of
their establishment. The Counties are
all traceel fiom the three main stems, in a
very ingenious manner. It is little sin
gular that the Count ies of the Albemarle
stem are all embraced in tbe- Ninth Con
gressional District, and that these are the
only Counties which sprang from that
source. Tbe plan is to be engraved and
attached to tbe work.
I Col. Wheeler's work has received the
highest commendations frorfl the Press of
the State, and be has been cheered in his
arduous labors by the approbation of
"some of the best and ablest men of the
country.
Every citizen who can afford it ought
to subscribe for a copy. We learn that
Ihe author expects to appoint Agentj in
all the Counties, in the State, with the
view of making it convenient to the peo
ple generally to subscribe,

ago, from one of our exchanges, stating
that the rvf-v. Francis L. Hawks, formerly
of this State, was also engaged in writ-
g a history of .North Carolina.
