again recur, in a censuring tone, to the
conduct of the officers of the South Caro
lina Rail Road. The same spirit of list
lessness, or, we might almost say. crimi
nal indifference to the interests of this sec
Uotu.wbich bas. all along marltedLthe optir
rations of that road, still continues without
any visible signs of improvement. An in
vestigation into the causes of the delay
in the transportation of our produce from
this place lo Charleston bas resulted in
the entire exoneration from blame of the
officers of Charlotte Road, and in filing it
upon those of the Soutb Carnlina Itoad,
or rather upon the President of that Road.
So. intent is he upon securing the Western
trade and travel to Charleston, that he
turns a deaf ear to the demands ol justice
and equity when made upon him even by
those among whom be was born, and nur
tured in his infancy and youth! Has he
forsotten his birth place f Has he forgot
ten that he was a North Carolinian at his

less, and tu all the endearing associations
ol his early childhood? Have all the feel
ings of State pride, and all the ties of
consanguinity, been -so completely swal

est that justice itself dare not approach

We (ear so 111
These strictures may seem harsh. But
hints, and innendus, and supplications,
and prnyers, have all been exhausted to
no effect. Our people take their produce
to Columbia, pay ihedrayage and have it
taken to Ihe Charleston Depot, in order lo
have it shipped to Charleston immediate
ly, but they frequently hear no more of it
for weeks. A merchant in this place
more than a month ago shipped some fif
ty odd barrels of flour, several firkins of
butter, and several other articles, for
Charleston, and received an answer a few
days since from his agent in Charleston,
stating that twenty seven barrels of flour,
some with parts of their beads knocked
out, and otherwise badly abused, bad ar
rived, but that of the rest, and of the but
ter and other things, he had heard noth
ing. Tbis is only one instance out ol
numberless others that might be mention
ed... These things will be remembered
when the Central Road is finished, and
the tide of trade may take the other di
rection. Charleston is not' omnipotent,
especially when she-has to--contend against
state pride. In her eagerness to compete
with Georgia, she may lose some future
advantages. We heard a merchant say
to-day that if the Ce ntra I Road we re fi tjr
ished, be would to-morrow send upon it
to Wilmington, or the Virginia markets,
five hundred bags of cotton. We under
stand that Columbia is almost blockaded
with produce from N. Carolina, intended
for Charleston. In a short time North
Carolina will have a market of her own,
and then this will not be so.
Excitement at Wathinglon. We learn
that great excitement was produced in
the beightbKdir the Census office, on
Monday, last, by the removal of upwards
of one' hundred Clerks from that Bureau,
leaving only six or eight of the old Clerks
in office i and by the removal, by Mr.
Kennedy, the late head of that Bureau,
by virtue of a legal process, of a large
quantity ol the papers in that office. Mr,
Kennedy contends that these papers are
bis private property, being materials for
a work on the Census, which he has been
preparing to publish on bis own account,
Congress having refused to print them.

We sea it stated , that the division of
California into three separate States is
now contemplated and pressed there.
A majority of the Legislature, it is said,
will order a State Convention, and upon
that Convention will depend the mode,
The three States are to be named "Sier

about 123,000 inhabitant by the last oen
bus ; CalifoTnia, which" bas 207,388 ;
d wTulare," the Southern State, inclu
ding Los Angelos and San. Diego, which
has 34,150 inhabitants, and about seven
and a half millions of taxable property.
This Southern State of Tulare, in the di
vision, it is comtemplated by many of the
occupants to make a slave State of, and
ener-frf bbjeets of pessigthe-di vision
is to establish slavery there.
Paint for Brick Houses. A correspon
dent of the Ohio Farmer has used a cheap
and very durable paint for the exterior of
brick dwellings, which ha already stood
several years, and is now quite as fresh
as when first applied. :: It consists simply
of limewash, with sulphate of zino as a
fixing ingredient. Any requisite shade is
given by adding the colors used by bouse
painters. A clear and rich cream color
may be obtained by applying yellow ochre
to the common new brick ; a livelier and
warmer shade will be added by a little
Venetian red.- Burnt sienna may- like
wise be used. The paint is far cheaper
than oil paint, costs but little more than
common whitewash, and nothing. will re
move it but the severeat friction.

We feel safo in saying that the whole amount
