Shepard, indeed, in his report upon
the phosphate heds of South Caio
lina made in 1-U. alter ,-keteh-ini;
the seed ion embraeiii'.' the terri
tory of active operation, says: The
territory thus de.-cribed, y no
means contains the entire forma
tion which certainly extends into
North Carolina.' The iiilormat ion
thus ;itl'orded has not. as lar is
known, been ever acted on. There
has been no exploration of that
region ot the State up !o the boun
daries of which these phosphate
beds were traced in South Caro
lina. It has been known for many
years that coprolites were found in
and about Lake Waccamaw; but
there as elsewhere, in this State,
they were regarded as accidental
anil fortuitous. No hope has been
encouraged, no hint afforded up to
last year, of any probability or pos
sibility that they would be found
here in workable beds.
'With the small appropriation
made by the Board at its meeting
in May last, and tho employment
of a minimum of his time by our
State Chemist, t lie hope expressed
by Dr. Emmons in 1852 was realiz
ed in 188.5. Expensive deposits
were found underlying a wide ter
ritory. They were traced through
an area of country ten miles in
width and twenty-five miles in
length. In general features these
beils bear a striking resemblance
to those of South Carolina. Like
them, they are found at a varying
distance below the surface, gener
ally but a few fief. Like them
they vary widely in quality: some
being rich in phosphate of lime,
some comparatively poor. Like
them. too. the bed- .try in thick
ness: some being but a tew inches,
some from four t five feet in thick
lu-ss. In -outli c i ilina they are
found not only beneath '"he surface
of the land, but at the bottom of
rivers, sea marsh -'S and .-hallow
!i.i-. They are theie most protii
.il'lv worked, becau.-e at least cost.

.-aid he was, and by trade a black
smith. And at last he was able to
work at the forge, and proved a
strong, big fellow, with arms like a
Hercules; and he told us his story .
"He had been a blacksmith, as he
said, but lie was fond of the sea,
and he shipped as one of the crew
of a pri vateersman. and was mak
ing money, on a vessel called the
Lord AV -()( an English ship
when she was boarded by a press
gang and carried on board a man-of-war
called the Ricniit. The
captain of this ship was a very hot
tempered fellow, who raved and
swore at his crew when they dis
pleased him, and he kept himself
well supplied with drink. One day
the new recruit. Eobert Jeffrey,
was sent into the captain's cabin to
do some work there, and saw in the
corner a barrel of beer. lie was
thirsty, and it w as tempting, and he
helped himself. No one discover
ing the fact, he tell into the habit
of taking the beer whenever he had
a chance, and one day the captain
caught him at it. He sv.oie and
raved and refused forgiveness, and
put Eobert Jeffrey in iron-, and
that afternoon, a- they ncared tlia:
black little island called the Som
brero called to his lieutenant:
Lieutenant, come here."

half a bushel of robin red breasts on

were pleased to hear from a private
source yesterday- that Cor. Jarvis
takes much interest in the Tri-Ceu-tennial
celebration at Koanoke and
is turning his oflicial eye, in prep

last week from J. Goodwin, of
Koanoke Island, a communication
relating to the, present appearance
of Fort lialeigh and the Indian

creeks in Onslow are considerable de
posits of coprolites. n nd beds of phos
phate rock, and all the way from Rich
lauds to Alum Spiinjrs limestone
abounds. The waifs and coiling in tho
house of Mr. Edward Murrell, at Gum
Branch, were of lime, which he burned,
using stone found on his own property.
Yet .only a few miles beyond I met a
two-mule team hauling half a dozen
barrels of northern lime from Trenton,
when it would have been much cheaper
to have made it at home from native
The pocoein of the White Oak swamp,
as seen from the west side, destroyed
some of the opinions formed while ex
amining it on the east. George ash
ington Smith was my guide aud com
the swanip. When well toward ihe
centre I found myself surrounded by a
great savannah comprising from 15 to
20 thousand acres, treeless except
lor a few scrub pines. A deep ditch on
cither side of the road was half fub of
swiftly running water. Wheji within
a mile of where the work was stopped
we found the water was flowing in tho
opposite direction, showing that we hud
passed the highest point. A subse
quent examination showed that the
pocosin was not shaped like a sauci r

but did not, and now think that ivn.it
ever there may bo ut the level of Cow

will ever be dug from the fc cm of lie
pocosin. for il fouud there n; nil, it w ill
be at a depth that will make them j Tac
tically valueless. I realized -,,!si. a- I
had not fully done before, the very '
heavy cost that would be entailed upon
whatever enterprising man or nun 1
should eventually purchase this gi (sat
body uf land from the State, before the
first dollar of profits could he derived
from it. Whoever buys it. without the1
ability to invest, at the least. $150,000 in
its improvement, will Le as badlv' off as '
the chap that bought an elephant. 1
doubt wnether any one man would be
induced to handle it. and think the
State will be compelled either to survey
and dispose of it in small tracts, or else
that it must find a company with vim
and money enough to put it through.
It is a long." irregular belt of timber of
varying values, inclosing a vas-t and ,
almost treeless savannah. Before the
timber can tie utilized, except at a few ,
extra favorable points, large sums must
be expended in carrying canals to lhe
tributaries of the Trent. New and White
i )ak rivers, and they in turn must he j
cleared of the obstructions that make
even rafting impossible. This will pie
pare the way for subsidiary ditching and
drainage, and then the whole, if wis ly
managed . can be made extremely pre
