If the road fs built on the plan of the writer,
nearly all the lumber used for sleepers may be
saved, making a difference of about 200, and
less, labor in laying, $100 The cost of con
st ructionon the various Plank Roads of the

of Macadamized Roads, taking twenty roads

A grea apprehension exists with some that
the cost ol Plank Roads-will be higher than
statements commonly indicate.
For our own part we attach but little impor.
lance to the question of cost, provided cheap
ness has to be obtained-by the sacrifice of any
one of the important points that constitute utility,
economy and profit, in Plank Road making.
On the question of utility, we are of the opinion
that that road is the ra useful that is the best
constructed, and permits of the easiest transit
of freight in the largest jwasibla quantities.
To ensure these requisites we have in allife.
ses to begin right.4 And in order to have them
forcibly-brought to our minds, we will treat
them under their appropriate heads, commen-

TRUTH FITLY AND BRAVELY ;
We are glad to find that the Southern Pa
triot," the fearless Ttnd generous supporter of
he principles of the Uniop as it is, or, in other
words, the Constitution of the United States as
it has been for sixty odd years, disdains to join
in the general cry of accusation against the
General Government, as oppressing, or. perse
cuting, or menacing the State of South Carolina.
We copy from that paper, (published, a9 our
readers know, at Greenvilje, S. C.) under dale
of the 1st instant, the following remarks :
It is high time for the co-operationists, whilst
fighting secession, and knowing thai it will bring
down on ihe Slate nothing but disaster, and
ruin, dishonor, taclose their exaggerated misrep
resentations of the oppressions of the Federal
Government. They cannot, at the same time,
go with the secessionists, and beyond the se
cegsionists, in depicting the pretended misery
and degredation of ihe people of South Carolina,
and then ask them to be quiet and submit to it
till other States come to their aid, who have
already declared, by overwhelming .majorities,
that they will never come under existing cir
cumstances These pictures of our wrongs are. untrue, and
every where out ot South Carolina they have
been pronounced untrue by the Southern peo
ple. Were they true, the whole would act as
one man, shivering to pieces the Republic, the
Union, and the Government. In admitting
them to be true, as the distinguished Co-operation
leaders do, they arm the secessionists wilh
weapons which they cannot resist. It is not
in human nature fo bear such wrongs. No
honorable man would take his seat in Congress
from the South if the Northern members were
all a set of cut-throats, incendiaries, and robbers,
trying to set our negroes free, steal from us
our property, and eel the midnight torch to our
Good men and true, who love their country,
and who love order, peace, and regulated liber
ty, seeking from their public men information,
are astonished lo hear such parpable contradic
tions in the speeches and addresses of their
leading statesmen. They reply, very natu
rally, there must be a mistake somewhere.
These pictures of Federal oppression and North
ern aggression are not true, or the people of
the other Southern States would instantly fly to
arms and fight their death by ihe side of South
It is high time for the co-operationists to
quit this suicidal course. Let them present

knvv touching its origin.
Solomon Spaulding, to whom I was uni
tedjin marriage in early life, was a grad
uarje of Dartmouth College, and was dis
tinguished for a lively imagination and a
great fondness for history. At the time
of our marriage he resided in Cherry Val
leyj New York. From this place we re
moved to New Salem, Ashtabula county,
Objo, sometimes called Conneaut, as it is
situated on Conneaut creek. Shortly af
ter our removal to this place his health
sunk, and he was laid aside from active
labors. In the town of New Salem there
are numerous mounds and forts, supposed
by many to be the dilapidated dwellings
and. fortifications of a race now extinct.
These ancient relics arrest the attention
of the new settlers and become objects
of research for the curious. Numerous
implements were found, and otjier articles
evipcing great skill in the arts. Mr.
Spaulding being ;an educate! man and
passionately fond of history, tok a lively
interest in these developmentlpf antiqui
ty ; and in order to beguile thse hours of
retirement, and furnish employment for
his imagination, he conceived (the idea of
giving a historical sketch of tki long-lost
race. Their extreme antiquity led him to
write in the most ancient style; and as
theiOld Testament is the most ancient
book in the world, he imitated its style as
nearly as possible. His sole object in
writing this imaginary history was to
amuse himself and his neighbors. This
was in the year 1812. Hull's surrender
at Detroit occurred near and at the same
time, and I recollect the date well from
that circumstance. As he progressed in
his narrative his neighbors" would come
in occasionally to hear portions read, and
a great interest in the work was excited
among them. It claimed to have been
written bygone of the lost nation, and to
have been recovered from the earth, and
assumed the title of" Manuscript Found."
The neighbors would often enquire how
Mri Spaulding progressed in deciphering
the manuscript ; and when he had a suffi
cient portion prepared he would itform
them, and they would assemble to'hearit
read. He was enabled, from his acquint
ance with the classics and ancient history,
to introduce many singular names, which
were particulary noticed by tbe people
and could be easily recognised by them.
Mr. Solo.mon Spaulding had a brother, Mr.
John'SpauIding, residing in the place at
the time, who was perfectly familiar with
the, work, and repeatedly heard the whole
of ijread. From New Salem we remov
ed to Pittsburg, in Pennsylvania.
Here Mr. Spaulding found a friend and
acquaintance in the person of Mr. Pat
terson, an editor of a newspaper. He ex
hibited his manuscript to Mr. Patterson,
who was much pleased with it, and. bor
rowed it for perusal. He retained it for
a long time, and informed Mr. Spaulding
that if he would make out a title-page
and preface he would publish it, and it
might be a source of profit. This Mr.
Spaulding refused to do. Sidney Rigdon,
who has figured so largely in the history
of the Mormons, was at that time con
nected with the printing office of Mr. Pat
terson, as is well known in that region,
and, as Rigdon himself has frequently sta
ted, became acquainted with Mr. Spaul
ding's manuscript, and copied it. It was
a matter of notoriety and interest to all
connected with the printing establishment.
At length themanuscript was returned to
its author, and soon after we removed to
Amity. Washington county, &c, where
Mr. Spaulding deceased in 181G. The
manuscript then el into my hands, and
was carefully preserved. It has frequent
ly been examined by my daughter, Mrs. !

uirecuon oy norses, and contrarily by
steam. The horses, four very powerful
animals, had much labor to drag the im
plement, and that only at a slow pace;
whilst the engine of 2G horse power,
hurried it back as fast as a man could
fairly walk to conduct the plough. After
several bouts" a subsoil nlouch was at-
tached at a gage of 9 and afterwards 121
inches. This additional burden, which
the horses could not possibly have drawn,
evidently steadied and improved the mo
tion, and left the work in a most satisfac
tory manner. Harrows were afterwards
appended with an equally pleasing re
suit. The ploughing took place across
old land, which showed in some places i

" Two engines placed parallel at each
end of the field would, without difficulty,
with only a double plough, complete four
acres of land in ten hours, and if required
subsoil it too. The work is more effect
ively performed, for it must be borne in
mind, that land ploughed by steam has
this great advantage that there are no
indentations or basins left as when plough
ed by horses (from the feet) a matter of
great importance on clay soils, and where
subsoiling is required, an advantage that
cannot be too highly appreciated."

cost of doing this work in England, com-

took it to her mother. It really was a
new, round, bright silver dollar. They
looked up and down the road; not a liv

steps nor waggon-wheels were to be heard.
Where did the dollar come from ? Did
God send it ? Doubtless it was from his
hand ; but how did it get there ? Did it
rain down ? No. Did he throw it from

town of such standing and consequence
should settle such a minister. But

cause we suppose the information can be
of any practical value in this country, but
to show how low both mechanical and
agricultural labor, as well as the hire of
horses, are estimated, compared with the
cost of the same work in this country.
The wages of engine drivers, strokers of
firemen, ploughmen, and cost of fuel and
horse hire must be more than double those
of the estimate to command the labor here
described in this country.
We will now proceed to show the re
lative cost of ploughing a field of (say) 24
acres by animal power and by the aid of
the steam engines.
