To the Editor of the -Star,
Sim: At a deeper excitement
than usual on the tubject of Internal
Improvement is at present felt in our
Stale, is it not, in your opinion, a suit
able time again to "invite the attention
of yuur readers to this part of our tea
board f ve are aware wai ine impor
tance ot fie Port of Beaufort to the
State of North Carolina, hat been urg
ed upon Iter from time to time, and that
effort upon effort hat been made to pre
sent it. in its true character before her.
But when we consider that the time is
near at hand, when the last public ef
fort for thit place for the last for some
time to come,) will in all probability be
made, we cannot permit, ourselves to
be silent. When we see before us a
place like tlii, with its fine harbour
and bar and all its commercial advan
tages, languishing by neglect of the
State, aud know it it in the power of
that State, by a liberal policy to make
it one i f the greatest commercial de
pots in the south, and thereby infinite
ly enhance her own wealth and impor
tance, we caunot refrain from once
more presenting Hie ' subject to the
friends of Internal Improvement in out
State. A period is approaching in the histo
ry of this State, highly important to
her citizens: a period to which every
eye must look with interest. We al
lude to the time when the proposed In
ternal Improvement Convention-shall
be held in your city. It it this Con
vention, we trust, that will give a pro
per direction and a lasting impetus to
the progrett of this) State in Improve
ment! It is to the united and harmo
nious efforts of this body of men, with
the co-operation of the General Assem
bly, that we look for a strenuous move
ment a movement th t will, if possi
ble, shake this State into action and
wake up her sleeping sons. A princi
pal object of this Convention will be
the selection of a place on the sea
board for Shipping port, w here a good
hoinemarket, and an independent ex
port and import trade can be perma
nently established. This is a measure
in which the State must take a deep in
terest. Much of her ultimate prosper
ity every ncan sec. n,ay harts upon
the decisions ol that Convention in this
matter. Everyman ot common sense
in the State, who has an idea of her
various and abundant resources, knows
that tfiriiow' requires to constitute
a firm basis, for her future prosperity
and greatness, is a connexion of her
various parts by rail way with a good
shipping port a port with all the fai.il
ties for a foreign trade. This it man
ifest to every observer. Then, Mr.
Editor, will it be the aim of those who
compose that Convention to select the
beil port in the State, tlie one whose
location and commercial facilities give
it a decided preference or that to
which prutnt individual interest in
clines ihenif Certainty, if they con
sult the ultimate aud general good, the
former. Then we would ask which
it the best port in the State? It it
Beaufoi-l we confidently assert. Where
is the Harbour with all the natural al
vantaget for a commercial intercourse
with every part ol the Globe? We
know there i only one in. thit Stale,
and that it Beaufort Harbour. A
g ance at it it tufikient to convince a
nv one acnuainted with our tea-board:
of thit fact, Yet sir, ask the man who
has traversed (lie shores of continents
and teen the finest harbours in the
world, and he will tell you at a glance
that Beaufort Harbour should be rank
ed among those vf the first class. He
will tell you that for easiness of access
by the mariner? for capacity, but above
all considering its contiguity to th
ocean for safety, the art of man could
not have contrived it better to meet the
wants of that Stale within whose bor
dert it unfortunately lies, and whose
suicidal policy has thrown into the com
mercial ports of other Statot the very
wealth that would have euriclteitlthis.
Now, Mr. Editor, caa for a mo
menrbeHeve that the Convention al
luded to will assemble at Raleigh, in
December next, with the avowed object
of devising a liberal and judicious sys
tem of Internal Improvement for this
Slate, and then fall tu, embrace in the
system which they may trrommend
the very place at which you "and all
your readers must admit ought to be
laid the corner atone of the bait- of
that system the place that should have
been the starting point of Imnrovenient
in thit Slate? Because a former puny
effort ol the Slate i.i thit matter ha
failed, should thit " place be finally a
bandoned? We cannot believe it till
the event shall i"? r'i.4-m
But we have reaton to believe -tnrr

port of Beaufort at a shipping port,
and they can be men of enlightened
and independent views, men free from
sectional bias, and solicitous alone for
the general welfare of the State, we
fear not the result. v
Would jt hot be well then, for tome
ol the most prominent men who may
be appoluted delegates to that Conven
tion, to pay this port a visit belore they
assemble at llale.gh. We . wish the.it
... its location, and satisfy them
selves in an unexceptionable manner of
its commercial advantage. Many of
the delrgates from the Western coun
ties who are deeply interested in this
matter, will, it it presumed, haveMt
little acquaintance with the sea board
of our State. We are particularly de
sirous that those gentlemen, -or s&Vh a
moi.g them as may expect to take an
active part in that Convention, should
be satisfied from actual observa ion of
the real importance of thit port to the
State of .North Carolina. This would
insure a fair consideration of Its claim
in that body.

will presVnt to your readers a few oth

place that will elevate its importance

The whole Stale wilt expect much from the"

every Delegate should contend for au expansive
system of improvement. No matter where ihe

OUR STATE AND- HER TRADE.
It Is astonishing to us that the pepj,
North Caioliua should be so blind to rJiti,
welfare as not to unito for tho purpose f
calling forth and establishing the resourrn
ofthe State. Nature has given ut .!.
advantagra than many others who have wt
stripped as in the career of improvement. VTs
observe that tlie Virgininand South Carolina,'
papers are" gravely speculating oa thcia,
portanee to their, jieople and . towns of
trade of iimt Slate, aud shrewdly devising'
recommending ineana to clutch it ioi their
own benefit. 'How long will our people ssU

drawn out, by Virginia and 'South Carollbi;"
to enrich theirjmizens and invigorauj their
systems, without milking one effort to avert
the disgrace which will follow! '
But if we bavo no prido about these thing, .
one. would think we had some regard fur oar
iiilercst and safety. What miserable policy -would
it be ia any nation or province lu f,t
ioie, to aiifltr its neighbors thos to tub lit ,'
citizens of their resources, and tura ill 1$, '-
dustry and enterprise to their wuvantage!-,
Would not every one look out for conquest x
and partition! In the netura -of things, jj
would, sooner or later, become a contonipuV
ble iservile province of its ncigbboral Its
own weakness would teach it submission to'
every dictation from ttietu, and, witling!;' '
would they throw themselves into, jhe ams '
of any power wbit-hwoulj afford jlictn prW
ti-etioii. Why should we not be liable p
the same reprouf! Not because we axe unir
tedi for who knows what revolutions trnt
few years may produce! We have do ditf
position or desire to " coleulaU) the Talnecl"
the .Union." We love it as the work oeilr '
Cither's, wlrteh, it properly used, would he a '
protectiiiti to m and a blessing to thevoda.
Out when others are calculating tho vafoe ot
the Union, by an interference with our Jo-.

those means which will place us at least on
an equal footing with our oeighbor, sliou'f
