THE President and Director! of the Literary Fund
of North Carolina, in pursuance of certain Reso

Fifty Thousand Acres
of Swamp Lands,
constituting a part of the Literary Fuudof the State,
Situated 111 UVUe una ivasiilllgiou vouuues, mm em
bracing the region lying between Pamlico and Albe
marle Sounds.
These lands have been drainod at great expense ,
under the direction of competent Engineers, and laid
off into Sections. The drainage has been effected by
two main Canals, to-wit: Puugo Canal, extending
from l'uiigo Lake to Pungo river, six and a half miles
in length, with an average width at bottom of 22 feet,
depth "six feM and full twelve fect-r-and Alligator Ca
nal, from Alligator Lake to Puugo river, 6 miles long,
with un average width at bottom of 30 feot, depth se
ven, and full ten feet ; together with sundry tributa
ries or lateral ditches. These Canals are navigable
fur Battuaux, and emptying into the navigable waters
of Pamlico Sound, their mouth are accessible to sea
going vessels.
A large portion of this Land abounds n Juniper,
Cypress and other valuable Timber, for which the for
est of Eastern North Carolina ii distinguished. The
'vendue consists of Prairie, covered with the Cane and
Bamboo, and in the estimation of the Eagineers who
surveyed it, the whole of it is extremely fertile.
To Grain Farmers, and to the getter! of Staves,
Heading and Shingles, this laud offers peculiar induce
ments. To Immigrant! In the Port! of the United States,
Bccustonied to a country similar in many respects,
this Land offers a soil believed to be as fertile as any
in the North-western States, with easy access to tho
Sea, and within three daya' sail of New York. The
Juuiper water is pleasant, and the hands engaged du
ring the last two Summers, in getting Shingles, have
enjoyed excellent health.

Tlie liglits and slr.uluws of real, life are often in
painful' contrast. The extremes in a crowded me
tropolis -arc indeed widely apart. Wealth and
pomp, and power, and pride, may be seen basking
in the sunshine of prosperity in one 'section vi thi;
city, while in another poverty and want, and '.ve.ik
nc?s, und wretchedness, may he found dniggins
on a weary existence, and almost liesitaling be
tween life a nil death. The oases, too, are not rare,
in which llieae contrasts, are. still more startling;
in which tlio indigent of curly youth will bo re
cognized among the uflliient of the present lime,

.volold the gratification of enridbity, and the in
culcation of a moral lesson. The invitation was
accepted, and the party, soon alter nightfall, pro
ceeded to penetrate into somo of the deplorable
mysteries of the commercial metropolis of the Ne .v
f orld. It is unnecessary lor us to enter into all
the details. They would form only a twice told
tale, and prove any thing but agreeable. Our
friend, however, as he paased throngh one of tho
most wretched portions oi the Points, had his at
tention arrested by a face tnat lie thought he re
cognized. He paused I old, familiar memories
came over hun, and he mentioned the name of a
school mato, an early friend of Ins boyish year !
I'lie bloated and disbgiii'ed being was roused by
the utterance of bis name by a stranger, and espe
cially as tlie (one was one of regret, not unmingled
with regard. His story may soon be told.
Ho was a gay youth, fond of the delights of con-
vival companionship, und even before he attained
the years ol manhood, he was a drunkard. Many
expedients were resorted to to reclaim him, but
without success. At last he became a gambler,
then a forger and then a convict. His poor old
father, who had exhausted all Ins means to rescue
lnm, descended broken hearted to tl.o grave, tlia
erring was still a young man, comparatively
speaking, only thirty-live years of age, possessed
hue talents, and was highly educated. But in
temperance had become a disease with him. lie
had attempted more than once to wrestle with and
conquer the Rum-Ficnd,but in vain. He admit
ted his error, deplored it, spoke feelingly of the past,
and asked if Ins mother still lived. His friend be
sought hun to make yet another effort. He liesi
tated at lirs.t, said that it was idle, that he had lost
all self-respect, sell-command and Bolf-relianee,
and felt that he would sink intcra dishonored grave.
Rut ins Inend urged, persuaded and at last pre
vailed. He took lnm to a mercantile house in
New York, wnere he stated the facts confidentially
and obtained for hitn a situation. The selection
was mo-t fortunate. The firm consisted of two
brothers; true christians and philanthropists, and
thev entered heartily into the benevolent enter
prise. Their policy was one of kuidnas eonji-

Thus thought Watchman No. 5, as a dark '
and stormy iiiht.ime three weeks tlnce.he paced
wearily -up and down Cirod street, and I'oWed more
closely -about him his heavy cloak, as the rain, dri
ven by the wind, came beating against him. With
a slow and measured tread he wended his solitary

abound in that neighborhood, aiid his vivid .imagi

to 'full upon their victims.; No. 25 was in the mid

parison between his present Situation, wet and
cold, and his own comfortable, bed at home, which
Mrs. No. 25 was doubtless thet enjoying, when be
was suddenly awakened from bis reverie by sever- .
al cries and moans, as j F, indeed, bloody murder
was being committed. The sturdy J' guardian"
stopped short, and soon ascertained that tho cries
proceeded from a gloomy looking shanty hard by,
with its doors and window-shutters close barred,
as if with a view of preventing interference from
without in the deeds being perpetrated inside. The
watchman, with' a -light and cautious step, approa
ched the place, and with a greedy ear listened to
the sounds of agony, intermingled with appeals for
mercy, which fell with startling import upon his
ear. That eome outrageous act was beins com
milted No. 25 was now convinced ; and ho debat
ed with himself what course he should pursue.
No. 25 does not lack courage; but, in estimating
the odds there would probably , be against him, if
he entered the place alone, he came to the conclu
sion that discretion, in such a case, was indeed
the better part of valof , and he rushed from the
spot in pursuit of assistance. In a few minutes
he was enabled to called file or six of his brother
watchmen, to whom, in broken and hurried sen
tences, he communicated the awful state of affaire
in Girod street. No. 25 having reconnoitred the
premises, was appointed to lead the van, and with
hurried steps the party proceeded to the spot.
When in tho immediate vicinity of the scene of
murder for nothing short of that was supposed to
have occurred men were posted in different pla
ces to prevent the escape of any one from the hw-:e,
and No. 25 then gallantly led his party to the
charge. They entered a narrow and gloomy al
ley, and soon came to tho door of a room' within
which the sound of voices was heard speaking in
a low tone, and the trusty watchmen were sure of
making a capture. The door was tried and found
to be fastened ; but No. 25's blood was up, and
with one awful lunge he went through the door,
and stood face to face with a midwife ! holding
in her arws a very diminutive specimen of human
ity, which had just made its entree into this wicked
world! Had No.. 25 been "ailed to the flocr, he
could not have seemed more like a statue ; and
whon he recovered himself sufficiently to turn his
head, and inquiringly look at his companions, a
loud burst of laughter rang in his ears, making
him feel keenly how bad ho had been sold.

Gen. C. D. Mitchell, an intelligent and experi
enced planter of Warren county, Misa., has recent
ly introduced the culture of. a new kind of ctton,
w hich he calls the Prolific Pomegranate, und w hich
is said to surpass any species oflhe gossypium fam
ily yet produced ia this country. The stalk does
not attain a height usually of mora than four or
five feet, but every portion of the plant is literally
covered with bolls, which are curtained in an up
right posilion by the strength and vigor of the stem
and branches. The chief peculiarity of this plant
is that tlie stem and branches have no joints as in
other kindd and although the boils are so nume
rous, there can be no inconvenience in picking,
In fact an expert picker might at one grasp gather
half a dozen at a time. The staple ia beautiful

A letter, dated San Francisco, July 25, written by
a lady to her friend in Massachusetts, says:1
Since my husband went to the gold region, bouses
have become vacant in all parts of this village,
anl the entire male population has left ui. The
women have b?err obliged in the absenco of the
males', to congregate together in the largest nutii
ber", in .large houses, and live together and do
tiicir own cooking, 6tc. I am now living or as'
we call it, messing, with a company of fourteen; ,
Tho experience of the world, men have said, show
ed that women could not live togefher vithouf
quarrels and turmoils; but our sisterhend, at this
time, gives a plain contradiction to this slander up
on our sex. When not interfered with by men, and
when permitted to drink our enp of tea 'under our'
own vine and fig-tree," we are as quiet and peacea
ble as lambs.
The demand fof msirriagable women seemstebe'
as great as for goods. This is tlM'only country in
the world where women are properly appreciated.'

one of females, and the Ja'-Gi ot females is as much ,
needed in cooking, etc., at the gold region, as th
males. There have Iven more marriages Die last
few months than in ten years previous in tins coun-'

region, make efforts to get wfiite husbands, which
they soon obtain in the present stute of atl'ars. -
Father Manaipie, the Catholic priest, haB informed1,
me. that he married tho last month 1 10 while men
to squaws.' The consequence is, that the poor In-'
dians will soon' be left w ithout any clasB of females
from which they can choose is ccrt.iirrly no white'
woman of whatever condition in society, ill mar

man of some wealih and prominence." Borne of
the most ugly aud slovenly servants here, marry
traders who have accumulated fortunes in a few''''
weeks. A" woman who cetnes liPro with one tooth
in her head, has a great - capita! to begin on in llie
