; THE WORLD'S FAIR. '
We have been much gratified by the
responses of the press of the State to Mr.
Alctteap .letter tn relation to the Icw
York Exhibition, which we published a
week or two since. The Wilmington Free
Fress says i
We are pleased to observe the alacri
ty with which the North Carolina press
have copied Mr JeRae' address, relative
to the Crystal Fa 1 1 ace. We do hope its
influence will not stop with the editorial
and publishing fraternity, but that the, pro
pie will take hold of the matter end carry
out his suggestions, in a spirit becoming
a State, able to do as much as this is ; in
a spirit which doe not bait a t the admi
ration the be(tiful dress excites, but
keeps on to the practical point set forth
The Charlotte Whig says :
" We thank Mr. McRea for bringing the
subject of the New York Fair to public
notice, and hope that steps will be taken
to give form and action to his patriotic
suggestions. II North Carolina is repre
sented in no other way, we at least hope
that some of the fair from "the. most, re
bellious Colony in America " will be fhere.
bime 4tte creations of the sculptor, and
the lifeless colorings of the Artist."
Most if not all the other papers have
copied the letter and invited to its sugges
tions Ihe attention of their readers.
The Fair in New York City will be
opened in May. A spacious and elegant
edifice is in course of construction ; and it
is lo be filled with the productions of na
lore, with the results of inventions of
whatsoever character, and of discoveries
in science. The States of Europe and the
States of America will certainly be there
with their contributions ; and perhaps por
tions of far Asia and Africa may be there
also in the same way. It will be a sliring,
a full, a great, and long to be-remember-ed
time. North Carolina can present her
self among the communities of the world
with a much credit and respectability as
others. She can go wiih her hands filled
and her garments sparkling with ihe evi
derrces of her varied resources; Of min
erals she can contribute troflr, gold, sti ver,
copper, coal, marble, granite, precious
stones ; of limber she can ofFer specimens
of pine, cypress, juniper, live oak, hicko

"In concluding this, my last annual mes
sage, permit ine to observe that it is how
a Utile over three yea-rs and six months
since it was my happiness to first land
upon the soil of Minnesota. Not far from
ivbf.re we now are, a dozen framed hou
ses, not all completed, and some eight or
ten small log buildings, with bark roofs,
constituted the capital of the new Terri
tory over whose destiny I had been com
missioned to preside. One county, a rem
nant from Wisconsin territorial organiza
tion, alone afforded the ordinary facilities
for the execution of the laws; and in and
around its seat of justice resided the halk
of our scattered population. Within this
single country were embraced all the lands
white me n were privileged to till; while
between fhrm and the broad rich hunt
ing grounds of untutored savages rolled,
like Jordan through the Promised Land.
the River of Rivers, here as masjestic in
its northern youth as in its more smuthern
maturity. Emphatically new and wild
appeared everything to the incomers from
older communities; and a not Teast-rel
feature of the scene, was the motley hu
manity partially fiHing these streets- the
blankets and painted faces of Indians, and
the red sashes and mocasins of French
voyageurs and half breeds, greatly predo
minating over the lesd picturesque cos
tume of the Anglo American race. But
even while strangers looked the elements
of a mighty change were working, nnd
civilization, wiih its hundred arms, was
commencing its restless and beneficent
empire, lo my lot fell the honorable du
ty of taking the initial step in this work, by

their ill gotten fortunes, leaving a crop of
clerks to follow in the footsteps of their
inhuman predecessors. It is, perhaps, not
