sure in stating, that the survey of this
Toad, which was commenced at the Trent
liver, near Newbern, has advanced to
within a few miles of this city. So far,
we learn, the ground has generally been
found favorable. It is uncertain what
precise direction the road will take in
leaving this neighborhood. Every exer
tion will be made by Mr. Rawle, the En
gineer employed by the State, to accom
plish the survey of the proposed route in
due season, that the stockholders and

Central rail road. This important
subject seems to be gliding into oblivion
with all the rapidity which marks the
downfall of North Carolina's favorite
schemes. As the Persians say of them
selves, ve are a great people;' but unfor
tunately for our prosperity, our greatness
evaporates in volumcsof resolutions, and
we leave to posterity the honor of com
pleting our vast designs. Wc have near
ly ceased to hope on the subject of this
road; and unless the Legislature shall
promote it in the approaching session,
we must endeavor to reconcile or feel
ings to our usual downhill course. Some
apology for the lukewarmncss of our citi
zens is undoubtedly to be found in their
limited means, but as the contemplated
work would add to the prosperity of the
whole State, the Stale should undertake
:t, and this apology will not apply to the
.Legislature. If they have not an over
flowing treasury, their credit is good: and
this is certainly one of the few cases in
which it would be profitable to get into
Resolutions,' we think it highly expedient
that the people should instruct their Re
presentatives on this subject before the
meeting ot tlie Legislature.
Tennessee. An extra session of the
Legislature of this State, convened on
the 3d inst. for the purpose of laying off

The Missouri Republican of the 28th ult.
mentions the arrival of the Wm. Wallace
at that port from Galena, with intelli

gagement between a party of Sioux In

Foxes. The victory was a most decisive
one; 200 of them being killed, and 40 ta
ken prisoners. Only about 70 warriors
escaped. Among the prisoners, is Na-o-pe-pe,
the second in command in all the
enterprizes against the whites, and the
celebrated Prophet. Black Hawk, it is
said by the prisoners, was wounded by a
shot from the steamboat Warrior, in the
action at the crossing of the Mississippi,
and died three days afterwards.

Glorious news from the West. In Kentuc
ky, eight of the Congressional districts gave ma
jorities for the Jackson candidate for Governor,
and four gave majorities for the Clay candidate.
In Illinois, Messrs. Duncan, Casey and Slade,
nil friends of the Administration, have been elec
ted to Congress.
In Missouri, the Jackson candidates for Con
gress, for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, &c.
have been elected.
In Indiana, it is said, a decided majority of
Jackson men have been elected 1o the Legislature
an event which has never before occurred.
The elections for State officers will shortly
commence in the Northern and Eastern States,
and wc doubt not will exhibit an equally grali
fvinjr result to the friends of the Administration.
The Cholera. No new cases are re
ported in the last Elizabeth City papers
wc nrcjeft to infer, therefore, that that
place is at present exempt from the dis
ease. We know of no other place in this
State, where any cases exist.
In Norfolk, Portsmouth and Suflolk,
both the disease and alarm have subsi
ded. Several cases had occurred at For
tress Monroe, Hampton and Smithfield,
but the disease is said to be rapidly on
the decline. At Smithfield, the mortali
ty has been unprecedented for the num
ber of inhabitants from the 24th Aug.
to the 9th Sept. there were 26 deaths by
Cholera population, about 400.
At Richmond, on the 8th inst. there
was one death by Cholera up to the
11th, however, no other case occurred.
At Harper's- Ferry, and several other
places in the interior of Virginia, a num
ber of cases have occurred.
In Washington City, it is still ragino
with violence- for the 24 hours ending
on the 10th inst. there were 43 new cases
and 13 deaths reported on the 11th, 29
cases and 6 deaths. Several cases of
Oholera had also occurred at George
town and Alexandria, D. C.
In Baltimore, for the week endin 10th
inst. there were reported 228 deaths by
Cholera. The disease, however, is sup
posed to be on the decline. It has also
appeared in several villages in Maryland.
In I hiladelphia and New York, the
Boards of Health have discontinued their
reports, the disease having almost wholly
We are gratified to perceive, also, that
the pestilence has abated, or is abating

FOR THE FREE PRESS.
following resolutions were introduced by
Col. Iiezekiah G. Spruill, and adopted: .
1st. Resolved, That we a portion of the
freemen of the county of Tyrrell, do
highly .approve of the leading measures
of the present Administration of the Fe
deral Government, and consider at this
peculiar juncture of our affairs, the re
election of Andrew Jackson to the Presi
dency as.indissolubly connected with ih0
happiness and prosperity of the Confe
deracy. 2d. Resolved, That we cordially a p.
prove of the nomination of ANDREW
JACKSON as President, and MARTIN
VAN BUREN as Vice President of th0
United States, and that we will cheerful
ly co-operate with our fellow citizens,
(entertaining the same creed,) in the use
of all honorable means to secure their
3d. Resolved, That it is a subject of
unfeigned regrft to this meeting, that
schisms and divisions have arisen in the
Jackson republican ranks in relation to
the Vice Presidency, and they fearfully
apprehend that without unity anil concert
of action in the Jackson ranks, the inevi
table effect will be the elevation of John
Sergeant (the opposition candidate) to
that high and responsible station.
4th. Resolved, That Martin Van Buren
presents high claims to the office of Vice
President, because he is possessed of ta
lents of the highest order because of his
unwavering attachment to the republican
party because of his undeviating devo
tion to the rights of the States because
of the brilliant services that he has ren
dered his conntry because he has been
nominated by a Convention of delegates
assembled at Baltimore and because he
has been proscribed and attempted to be
disgraced by rival and factious Senators,
in rejecting his nomination as Minister to
5th. Bcsolved, That this meeting do
disapprove, and recommend unanimous
ly to the several counties in the district
to disapprove the nomination of Joseph
B. Ilinton, Esq. of Beaufort, as Elector
for this district, and respectfully recom
mend to the support of the people, our
worthy and respected fellow citizen,
Epiiralm Mann, Esq.
On motion, resolved that a committee
of vigilance be appointed, and that the
committee consist of John B. Beasley,
Iiezekiah G. Spruill, Charles M'Clees,
Samuel Rogers, and Joseph Wynne, Jr.
On motion, resolved that the proceed
ings of this meeting be signed by the
Chairman and Secretary, and that the
Editors of the following papers be re
quested to give them an insertion the
Edenton Miscellany, Elizabeth City Star,
No. Ca. Advocate, Tarborough Free
Press, Washington Union, andNo. Ca.
Constitutionalist, and that all the Edi
tors in the State friendly to the object of
the resolutions, be requested to give them
an insertion in their papers.
The meeting adjourned, sine die.
Z. TARKINTON, Ch'n.
C M'CLEES, Sec'y.
Before the meeting adjourned, a gen
tleman (a Clay man) suggested that the
4th resolution was not understood, and if
so, was not carried but by a very few
"--.uiuupon me resolution was
read again, and on the question of its
passage, it was carried without scarcely
a dissenting voice.
