lation as to results will give place to re
sults themselves when we shall have
practice in the pbee ol theory. Our sym
pathies are 'all Lilb the seaports of our
own State, Wo are anxious that Wil
mington should share largely in the up
country trade, and . we believe her cnter
prising rnerchauis and tradesmen will
spare no efforts to command this trade.'
, But the torn pet ii ion, from the very con
dition of things, will be warm an active.
There is no cheaper market in the whole
country than Wilmington, especially for
groceries, and farmer's yearly supplies.
Look over the prices current of the di lifer
ent towns, and you will, be convinced ol
this. Her trado is rapidly increasing ; and
her capacity for trade has, we believe,
been underrated even among our ovv:i
people. As soon as a communication
with the interior shall have been effected
Wilmington will cease, of course, to a
great .extent to purchase her supplies
such as hay, apples, butter, onior.s. lour,
potatoes from the Northern and Eastern
States, and will come to depend for these
things upon our own farmers and plan
tersj and the same remark will apply to
Newberu and Beaufort when the Koad
fromGoldsborough to the latter place shall
have been constructed. But the people
of the interior will trade where they can
get most for their products and at the
tarn time purchase their supplies at the
cheapest rates due' allowance being
made, of course, for the distance to be
overcome and the charges for transporta
tion. We take pleasure in givng a satisfac
tory reply to our Correspondent in re-
" latiorf to the Hateigh atulGaslon Koad.
That Road can flow be "tried" and "trust
ed." It is now in as good n condition as
any Road in the Southern country, and
well managed. We do not know what
reduction in charges is contemplated , but
the Road can certainly carry at cheaper
rales than heretofore.
So far as Raleigh is concerned we may
say that up to this time business has beeu
driven-to the top notcb- that is, we have
- just as many retail stores as can be sus
tained a number of shops, hut no whoie-
sale houses. The people here are not i
wanting in a spirit of enterprise. The

the saw and the hammer can be heard in
all directions fair prices are paid for
' bands, and all who will work may. Our
merchants nod business men in ust wake 4

Mr. Clingman. This Honorable gen
tleman, we perceive, has attracted consid
erable .attention by his late address. In
deed, we are a littte surprised that a man
of bis calibre and character should be
able to create as much notice, from time
to time, as be has. done. This circum-
stance alone, is calculated to inspire tbe
counted for, it is not material to enquire
into at present.. It is. obvious, ...however,,
that he hold hnwelf a head and shoulder
above any other man in North Carolina;
and sneers contemptuously t the Legis
lature of the State, whom he charges with
baying conspired against him in (he ar
rangement of bis district. Small game for
the pursuit of our grave legislators I
But Mr. Clingman's inconsistency on
this point is wrapped in a nutshell. It
should be remembered the last Legisla
ture was democratic, and that Mr. C. still
also be remembered that this democratic
Legislature added a thousand pore Whig
votes to Mr. C.'s district, thereby making
it overwhelmingly Whig. And yet strange
to tell, he berates the Legislature for add
ing this additional strength, and charges
them with the purpose of defeating him.
If he be a Whig, why complain? If a
Democrat, bis district was decidedly
.Whig before, and if be blame any body
for making it at ronge,' iHrtiisTmenniF
democrats those who run him for the
U. S. Senate. As a democrat be had no
right to expect the suffrage of a whig dis
trict. As a Whig he bas no cause to com
plain. And yet he is rampant.
In this address he talks both ways, all
ways so much so that it is impossible to
tell whether he Is fish, flesh, or fowl. He Is
a non descript in politics. To change the
figure, h;s sails are set; and he invites tbe
winds to fill them ; but like a boat, with
out a rudder, his barque obeys every
chance current. Now eddying in circles,
now darting like a co'mmet. " Now brave
ly contending, and now piteously creaking;
but ever, ever tending to that most fatal
malstrom, extreme selfishness. He is like
a man we once knew wbo visited no house
where he might not find a mirror to re
flect the beauty of bis face ; before which,
planting himself, all others in the room
appeared, in the back ground. Or like a
peacock with his tail spread, self-adored
beneath "tbe gasre- of rt -thousand inferior

of all the .lock represented, at the call ol the
Chairman, L. BwtKMEB, Eq.. ,I,re.idel of

of (be work on the Road. - From IhU report H
appears that oua iastaliinent over half ol the

in the prosecution ol ibe work ; and believing
Kbat it would meet the views ol a priioa olJ
ibe .tockbolder. and probably advance the in-
teret ol tlie Company, made known his purpose
lo resign bis office. 1
The ubjeci embraced in lbi report were
duly considered by the Company. In order
to meet ihe greaieal and almost the only difTi-
culty in a more speedy prosecution ol the work,
the following resolution, by (1. C. Jomks, Esq.,
wa unanimously adopted, lo wit :
Betulted, Thai he Itrectors of this Company be
instructed lo collect the installments already called for
promptly ; and that the same be laid oat in the eiten
sion of the Koad after the present existing debts of ihe
Company are paid: and that as speedy a collection be
made hereafter aa can reasonably be made; and that
so energetic policy be urged upon tbe Directors inthe
further progress of tlie work.
Tbe question wa raised whether it wa com
petent for ibis meeting lo fill the vacancy in the
Board occasioned by ibe resignation oH the Pres
ident. But by common consent il wm dismissed,
a being the proper work of tbe' Directory tbi
nol being lbs annual meeting of the Company.
W. P. Caldwell, Esq., of Iredell, addreed

to lbs very letter. If she lack any thing now,
