We can assure The Sun. as we have public sentiment thereto is sufficient approbation, and the Impotent rage of a thwarted aspirant for a President's salary on the road will have no other effect than to confuse and needlessly agitate the public mind, mislead the uninformed, retard the state in ner le- often stated to the people of the State, gitimate progress, and damage the ma- that the lease was In violation of tho legal ana equitADle rights of the State. The State owns three-fourths of the road and had no voice la the lease. The President of the road, Wm. A. Smith, before the committee on fraud, swore he did not receive money for the lea.e. When asked If his family or friends had received money for him on account of the lease he declined to an swer tho question, and said he could not do so without criminating himself. I In this answer is evidence of fraud, full and complete. There was a time when such an answer would damn a man in public estimation. .With the Republican party It Is dif ferent.

The article quoted above from The Baltimore Sun is only correct in so far as arrangements have been made with the Southern Security Itailtvay Company to complete and equip the Western North Carolina Railroad to Paint Rock on the Tennessee line. To do this re quires an outlay of the two millions and a half of dollars, which the Southern Security proposes to expend on a great public highway in North Carolina. And that company proposes to com plete within the next eighteen months ter, and sometimes ruin, which its en forcement brings upon those who vio late its provisions, often innocently or inadvertently, are most vexatious and offensive. These are results not pecu liar to the present system, "but appa rently inseparable from any- system which draws by direct taxation im mense sums of money from the people.

" On the 6th day of June at the meet ing of the Democratic Congressional Convention for the Raleigh District, I am informed that Josiah Turner, Jr.; stated that I had told him that Wil liam A. Smith, President of the North Carolina Railroad Company, had offer ed to bribe me, then States' proxy in the North Carolina Railroad Company, with the sum of one thousand dollars to vote favorably for the lease of the North Carolina Railroad franchise to the Raleigh and Gaston Railroad Com pany, which bribe I refused. Upon hearing the above from relia ble friends, I addressed a communica tion! to Mr. Turner in regard thereto, which I caused to be handed him by mv friend J. P. Prarie. Esq., of Ral eigh. Mr. Turner refused to receive my communication, and I am there fore'forced to come before the public in this card. I pronounce his statement a wilful, malicious and wanton falsehood. I have had no conversations with Mr. Turner since one week after the election of Dr. Wm. Sloan, as Presi dent of the Wilmington, Charlotte and Rutherford Railroad Company, which took place, I think, on the 27th day of July, 18C9. ; , h I was appointed Slates' proxy on tho North Carolina Railroad . on the 18th day of Oct., 1869, and had no knowl edge of the appointment until about tne first day of Nov., 1869. !

T.ll . rsoriu virouna luuiroaa. I A3 to the $6,000,000, this Road has already cost the State, The Sun is per fectly aware how the State appropria tions to the-Western North Carolina I load have been managed and squan dered, but thus to attempt to prejudice a great work and a great public interest by a flippant allusion to 4t political manipulation " when there is neither reason in nor foundation for the charge evinces an ignorance in The Sun that Js hardly excusable in a journal of its ; pretensions and source of information. No one is, however, antonlshed at the conduct of The Jialeigh Sentinel in the matter. The editor of that paper went mad on the subject of the North Carolina Central Railroad some years ago, and he forgets that there is any other line of llailroad in the State. The Sun writes about the Jl eslern North Carolina Road, whereupon the editor of The Sentinel, with characteristic ig norance and mendacity,, tires away at the lease of the North Carolina Central; and he misleads himself and would de ceive his readers by placing a false cap- tion of his own orth Carolina Rail Road" over The Sun's article. which was written "Another Southern , Railroad Sold." For months this Raleigh Sentinel has been harping on and misrepresent ing the lease of the North'Carohna Rail Road. Its false statesments in regard to the transaction have mislead and dissatisfied the. people at a distance. while those directly affected by the chancre of management are a unit of satisfaction with the lease. The people need not be told that the lease of the North Carolina Rail Road was resrular and in no wise in 44 viola tion of the legal and equitable rights of the State." The late Governor liragg and Ralph Gorrell, Esq., were counsel In the matter, and the people need not be Informed that Thomas liragg was no man to aid, counsel and advise the bartering away "of the legal and equitable rights of the State." When it is urged tnat this lease was consum- mated by fraud a charge of bribery and corruption is directly made against such gentlemen as Thomas Bragg and Ralph Gorrell. When it Is said 44 money was paid for the lease " it must be un derstood that Dr. R. B. Haywood, w ho represented the State, took a bribe to sign the lease. It is peculiarly unfortunate for a peo ple when a press so utterly devoid of truth, and whose editor lacks the infor mation and intelligence to write cor rectly on any subject, is permitted to stand In the light of the great public in terests of their State. The editor of The Sentinel, if he had the intelligence to comprehend any thing would acknowledge that the lease of the North Carolina Railroad was in the verv best interests of the State, and to the advantage of the whole people along the line of this road from the mountains to the coast. He would know that it was the only way in which the State's interest In the line could have been protected, and the future successful operation of the road assured. With Its connections cut off at both ends, a parallel line for nearly halfit length projected and actually begun, what would the North Carolina Rail road have been to the State or to its private stockholders in three years more? With a treasury depleted, and tax-payers Impoverished, the State would have been utterly unable to op erate the road at her own expense, the stock would have "depreciated to noth ing, and the line must inevitable have gone down. As it is the State Is as sured six and a half per cent annually on her investment, millions of foreign capital have identified with one of her great works of internal improvement, other parts of the country, to give a protective character to the Tariff, de mand, in favor of ours, the repeal of this excise tax upon Tobacco and Dis tillation. - - II. In my opinion it is impolitic; to raise revenue from the people for any further payment towards the principal of the National Debt, until the same becomes demandable. , I What has been done in that way hitherto has been good policy, as going to establish public credit, rendered questionable by the confusion which, followed the recent war, and especially by the financial views of distinguished leaders of political opinion in other parts of the country. The Adminis tration of General Grant has alreadv paid some three hundred and fifty mil lions of the principal of this debt; and under existing legislation, before any change, such as I propose can be effect ed, it is probable that Five Hundred Millions of it will have been paid. Tne principal of this debt is demanda ble partly in about ten, and partly in about thirty years. The wealth of the country is advancing with strides, so gigantic, that at the end of those pe riods payment of this principal will Hte felt as a burden only one-half, and ! For the Carolina Era. A Card from Geo. Z. French. Editor Era : On my return home yesterday after a short absence, my at tention was called to an editorial in The Sentinel of 3d inst., in which is the lollowmg paragraph : 44.Geo. Z. French, another 44 carpet bagger," was in that Convention, and thatjsame testimony shows that he and others received of tnat 44 .Bribery Fund " $20,913.74." Now, I was not within one hundred miles of Raleigh when the last State Republican Convention was held there, nor have I taken any active part in politics for a year. If to manage the finest plantation in the State, with 500 acres under cultivation, 13,000 fruit trees, and 14,000 grape vines, all in bear ing, giving employment to 150 souls, is being a 44 carpet-bagger," I am proud of the title. There was no evidence before the 44 Fraud Commission " that I had any thing to do with 44 Bribery and Cor ruption." I had no other than strictly legitimate transactions witn swepson, Littlefield, any State officer, or member of the .Legislature, and no honest man after reading the testimony will make any such mean vmnuation. j Yours truly, ' ! : GEO.

The cotton and turpentine regions import corn, hay, flour, meat and butter from the North ; a little corn from Hyde.

" -, While North Carolina ! shows a greater number of agricultural products than any other State, she is net surpassed by any in the number and amount of her agricultural imports. I One county (Watauga) reports hay as its principal crop. It ought to be so in fifteen counties. The counties beyond the Blue Ridge export cattle, butter, honey, buck wheat, cabbages, and a ; few of them also corn and flour. They formerly exported also hogs and sheep ; , but j the hog cholera and failure pf the . chesnut crop together have nearly ended the' hog business, and wolves and dogs have laid an embargo on sheep raising.

Dear Mr. Sumner: I owe it to you to say with all the frankness which sober friendship justifies that, I have carefully read your speech and its sharp arraignment of the President, and my conviction is that it is ill-judged, ill timed and so extravagant in its charges and bitter in its personalities as to' neu tralize whatever of Just criticism can be found in it. It will assuredly serve Thousands o'f our people were ruined by the war inaugurated, by the Demo cratic party, and yet when the Repub lican! party offered the people of the State a Constitution which provided a homestead thus enabling our people to save a home from the general wreck, Judge Merrimon and his friends la bored hard to prevent even a home be- I ing saved.

Suspicion rests on a certain party, but no arrest had been made at last ac- j count. The young lady is very seriously injured, and doubts are entertained as to her recovery. The human in fiend's shape who com mitted the outrage, we hope will be arrested, tried and if found guilty, hanged until he is dead.
