Tbe Advertiser adds tbe following par

which readily suggest themselves, have
been ingeniously, and apparently effectu
ally obviated by Mr. Richardson. The
inconvenience of the sudden shock occa
sioned by the arrival of the "plunger" at
the end of its journey, is avoided by an
arrangement by which a portion of the
air in front of it is compressed and allow
ed to escape but gradually, forming a sort
of cushion to ease the Jolt. The retard
- in effect of the friction caused bv the mo
tion of tbe large column of air which ne
cessarily follows the plunger in the tube,
is prevented by the occasional recurrence
of valves in the tube connecting with the
; atmosphere, to be opened by the plunger

manner In whlcE its packing is construet

"Wait for the Wnson.H The following
extract from the Virginia Gazette, of 183S
read at the Wheelmg R. R. celebration,
tbn rising generation are inclined to
laugh at :
" The Baltimore and Ohio Wagon Com
pany with a capital of g200,000 (one fourth
of which is paid in) transport goods be
tween Wheeling and Baltimore. One
wagon departs and arrives daily from each
of these places with a load weighing from
'i to 5 tons, and occupying eight days
upon the road ; and arrangements are in
progress to increase the number of daily
arrivals and departures from one to three
wagons, and eventually to five."
This arrangement was the origin ot
the " Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Com
pany," which, when their road is fully
completed and stocked, will represent a
capital of $20,000,000. The distance
which the wagons made in eight-days will
now be accomplished in one by tbe cars
with 300 instead of tons for It load.
Dallimore and Wheeling didn't u wait for

The individual who sits down in his store

an old " rusty wagon " that will never

DEATH OF VICE PRESIDENT KING.
The scene is at length closed on thi, J
eminent and esteemed citizen.- Death ter
minated his valuable life and his protract
ed sufferings on Monday evening, tbe 18th
instant, at bis residence altSelma, in Ala
bama, which he had with difficulty reached
the day before. lie strove to get borne
to die, and his' last hours were doubtless
consoled by the thought that he should
expire under his own roof.
Mr. King was in public life, filling all
the time distinguished stations, upwards
of forty years, almost tbe entire period of
his manhood. Not endowed with shining
talents, though of excellent sense, brs ca
reer furnished a remarkable instance . of
the eminent and deserved success of prob
ity, fidelity, propriety, a gentlemanly spirit
and bearing, and inflexible bonor. These
qualities shone out conspicuously in bis
character through life, and his fitting re-
ward was many of the highest hortar of
his country, lie was Representative in
Cong ress from Nort h C arolina. bis. native
State; from tbe 1811 to 1810; then Sec
retary of Legation to Russia ; next Sena
tor in Congress from the Slate of Alaba
ma, from 1819 to 1845, (of which body be
was repeatedly chosen President ; ) then
;MJaist Tr; r -a
Senator again in 1849 lo 1853 ; and final
ly retired from that long and faithfully fill
ed post to receive his crowing honor, the
highest, save one, in the Republic, that
of Vice President of the United States.
This, alas I he lived to reach but not to
enjoy, and has descended to the grave with
tbe warm affection of bis friends, and tbe
universal respect and regret of his coun

DISCUSSION AT L1NCOLNTON.
The candidates for Congress in thia "District, met at
Unoolnton, last week, and partially opened the canvass.
We learn that the diacnasion was limited by the Court
lo one hour each- Mr. OasoaNC led off, -in his osnal
handsome style : He announced himself as being in fa
vor of a distribution of the proceeds of the public lands.
On this point we think Mr. OssoiNt will receive the
approbation uf nine-tenths of the people of the District.
Unless wt are greatly mistaken, the people of North
Carolina, hare determined that our old Stale shall come
in for her share of these lands. She it more entitled to
them than the new Slates, to whom Congress has been
giving thern away by mUlions ot a
iS sban ahe demand her lar of tbemT Siirely our
State need the money ; her right ia clear, and it is
strange indeed that any one should oppose the receiving
of it Bot strange at it may teem, tad however much
we need it, just at thia lime, when we are requiring
funds to carry on our internal improvements, strength
en our Common Schools, &e., there are yet tome who
are opposed to receiving the. portion that would fall to
North Carolina. We learn that Mr. CaaioaTit of this
own belt tod that he. took the ground ihatlbe.LviakmJ.
of the proceeds of the public lands was unconstitutional !
the old Stales, it is equally unconstitutional to give
can be otherwise. Yet we tee at every session of Con
gress large donations made to the new State. This
has been, and will continue to be the practice, unless
the people of the old States make their voices heard on
the subject, and protest against the unjust policy.
Mr. Ossoana also defined his position in regard to th
dangsrous policy of extending indefinitely the Territory
of the United Slates. He was opposed to the doctrine,
and showed how rt would lead to debt and to foreign
wars; and worse than all, to a renewal of those stormy
sectional strifes at home growing out of the slavery ques
tion. Mr. Caaioi, on tbe other hand, unadmonished
by the past, and warmly sympathising ' wiih the prt
grettivt of his party, denounced these conservative
views and declared himself in favor of the acquisition of
Cuba and every thing else within the grasp of the Uni
ted States. V
It remains to be teen bow tht people of thit District
will act in reference to these greal(questione- Are they
willing to see tht public lands squandered for ihe benefit
of the new States, composed at they are, in the most
part, of foreign emigrants?
. ,Are they willing to go with the progressive! in the
acquisition of territory, when war, taxes, and imminent
danger to our institutions, are tht inevitable results?
WtUll rtcixr to these, tubjcu taia,an
dea vor to lay be lor our readers tht best lights possible,
in order to aid them in their conclusions.

A few dnys after my recent departure
from home to the Northern Cities, it was
my misfortune to lose my dwelling house
and more than half my furniture, &c, by
fire. With a generosity and magnanimi

neighbors and friends rushed to tbe relief
of my distressed family, giving tliem such
J succor as to ' render i.hecaltttntly almost
most najmles. J Bhouiii, tberetorerdo
