part of this paper the proceedings of a
I'lank Road meeting held h KandoJ,ph
county on the 22 J ultimo, to which we in
was la take preliminary sleps for Uieo
st ruction of a Plank Road connecting with
the Fayetteville and Western road, to
Salisbury. --Tb'e questionia again, there
foreruhniilted to the citizens of this place,
whether or not they desire such a connec
tion with Fayetteville. There can be but
little doubt that this road would be of im-
portant service to our citizens. For ma -
ny miles distant it would serve as a feed
er to the Central Rail Road, and in that
wav contribute to the trade of the place,
and to that extent enhance tbe value q
of Town property. j
We would be glad to have some favor- ;
able indication of feeling on the part of ;
our citizens in relation lo this project to j
mention in connection with the move-
ments of its friends in Randolph. But up
to this time, there has not been that we
have heard, any talk or movement upon
which we. feel authorised to express an
opinion as to w hat may be expected. The
subject is now presented lo them, bow
ever, and we think it is one which merits
the attention of all who are interested in
the business success of Salisbury.

important one to this place, and ihere it

that this scheme should be commenced
and pushed forward with all possible
speed. The completion of the Rail Road
will be the signal for an immense of trade
from all tbe counties North and North
west, and from several of the border coun
ties of Virginia ; and with the advantages
of a Plank Road extending through the
heart of those counties, that trade would
inevitably come to thfsjvlace it could-go4
no where else and do as .well. It isi there
fore, high time that something was being
done to secure the construction of this
road, which would, it is believed, even
now, were it in operation, pay expenses
and a handsome profit besides.

of the ad vantages to Salisbury, as well as
