Thursday Morning. June 7, 1866.
The whole tendency of tho present
Congress, in its legislation thus far,
seems to be to centralize power in thc
Federal Government, and to oblite?
rate State rights, and, in the end,
perhaps, eventually, State hues.
Their latest legislation in this direc?
tion is that of chartering railroads
running from one State to another,
running through a number of States
and connecting with any other lines,
without let or hindrance from Stato
True, this does away with odious
monopolies in railroads, and, thus
far, is seemingly equitable and just;
but it is dangerous ground to take
this encroachment upon what the
States themselves heretofore consi?
dered their right and privilege, viz:
the chartering of joint stock compa?
nies engaged in private enterprises.
If Congress eau legislate railroads
into existence in any part of the coun?
try, they can, with equal propriety,
charter manufacturing companies or
any other partnersliips for private en?
terprise, defining their rights and
privileges, and prescribing their mode
of organization, and tho manner in
which they shall carry on operations.
Tho two principal roads now on
Ute tapis are, one, called " tho air?
line," from Washington to New
York, and another, from Washington,
through Maryland, to the Point of
Rocks, on the Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad. How Pennsylvania, New
Jersey and Maryland will view Ibis
encroachment on what they have al?
ways considered their rights, remains
to be seen.
We, of the Southern States, with
the close of the war, gave up that
doctrine of our political faith, but
we thought that the States of the
North and West would escape at least
this result of tho conflict. These
railroad charters, however, will be
extended in a Southerly direction, j
whenever the interests of capital de?
mand such extension. The ground
ttkeu why these roads are made pub?
lic highways is that of military ne?
cessity, and the plan will considera?
bly strengthen the hands of the Go?
The upshot of tho Fenian news is,
that the Fenians, under Col. O'Neill,
formerly of the Union army, now
"Commander of the Irish Republi?
can Army iu Canada," with a force
varionsly stated from COO to 3,000,
have taken Fort Erie, which is not a
fort, but a small towu nearly oppo?
site Buffalo, on the Canada side.
There are abundant rumors about
other exploits of the "I R. A. in C.,"
but we can cipher out nothing very
definite beyond the simple tacts
above detailed. Fort Erie, tho cap
turo of which by the Fenians has tho
tone of an important military acqui?
sition, is only a small village, located
on the Niagara River, opposite Black
Kock, three miles distant from Buf?
falo. Tho placo is named from the
old Fort Erie of the War of 1812,
which has been long dismantled and
unoccupied. On the 3d of July,
1814, General Winfield Scott crossed
tho river with Scott's and Ripley's
Brigades and Hindman's Artillery,
and captured thc place, together willi
a part of its garrison. On the next
day be advanced upon Chippewa,
skirmishing the whole distance to the
position held by Riall, the British
General, and, on the 5th, achieved
the decisive victory of Chippewa,
driving tho British beyond the river
of that name.
AN LNCENDIARY RESOLUTION.-At
the New England Anti-slavery Soci?
ety's meeting in Boston, on Wednes?
day, the following resolution was
offered by one S. S. Foster:
Resolved, That deeply sympathiz?
ing with our colored fellow-citizens
for the outrages to which they are
subjected at the hands of Southern
rebels, through thc complicity or in?
difference of the Government, wo
warn their oppressors that tho day is
not far distant when passive submis?
sion will cease to be a virtue, and
duty and honor will alike require
them, in imitation of our revolution?
ary fathers, to assumo tho defence of
their own rights, and appeal for their
justification to the intelligence and
humanity of the civilized world.

The telegr?jpb lias already, informed
ns that Mr?. Davis' departure from
Washington wns liastouod by a--mes
sago from Fortress Monroe that her
husband's health was rapidly failing,
and the report of Dr. Cooper leads
to the apprehension that tho inter?
ference of the President in the pri?
soner's behalf may have come too
late. The Richmond Whig, in pub?
lishing the telegram announcing the
chango in his condition, mentions
that a note was received in that city,
a few days ago, from Dr. Cooper, in
response to one that had boen writ?
ten to him relative to a suit of clothes j
it was desired to send Mr. Davis, in
which he expressed the apprehension
that his distinguished patient would
not long need the articles proposed
to be sent.
How much better would it havo
been bad Mr. Davis been brought to
speedy trial, or that, if this could not
have been done, to have released him
on bail or on his parole. We know
not who is to blame in this matter,
but such a course would be magnani?
mous and worthy of that generosity
of the President which he has ex?
tended to others.

Mr. McDonald, of Moore, whose
political sympathies aro with the
radicals in Congress, and who, with
other par excellence "loyal" North
Carolinians, hates the conservatism of
the President second only to the in?
tenso hatred he has for .Southern
"Destructives," and would gladly
see North Carolina returned to a
"province," if, as he may have rea?
son to believe, he could regain the
position from which he was so justly
ejected, has introduced a preamble
and resolution, declaring what we
have done towards a return to the
Union, and authorizing the appoint?
ment of live Commissioners to go to
Washington, asking of the President
and Congress what moro is required
of us. The preamble to the resolu?
tion expresses thc "hope that the
President (during the recess of the
Convcution) would be authorized by
Congress to declare the States restored
to the Union."

ultra radical thoories of Stevens and

known in North Carolina, lt de?

acted thus far without authority, as
he has acted without the sanction of
There has been no final vote upon
the proposition, but upon the motion
of Mr. Richardson to lay upon the
table, the voto stood ayes, 2<J - -nays,
71. Wo, of course, at this distance,
cannot say that tho vote is a test of
the strength of the resolution, and we
certainly are surprised to seo some
names recorded in the negative. We
will watch closely the final vote, aud
call thcattention of constituencies to
their faithful representatives, and
dwell more ut length upon the effect
of the proposition, should it pass.
The resolution was referred to a
select committee of seven, where we
hope it will find a decent burial.
CUSTOM HOUSE AFFAIRS.-Collector
Smythe has at last commenced re?
moving thc radical oilice-holders in
the Custom House. Ho was very
slowin beginning his work of reform,
but now that tho ice is broken, he
will no doubt make ?mick work of it.
He has an excellent opportunity to
exercise his power in this line, for it
is safe lo estimato that at least nine
tenths of tho old employees are
radicals of the strictest typo. It
will, therefore, be hard work for him
to go amiss. If lie will only ener?
getically continue this work ho will
soon seo that it will have a good effect
upon the radical Congress at Wash?
ington. It is reported that thc long
delay of Mr. Smythe in commencing
to apply the guillotine created some
suspicion on the part of tho Presi?
dent that he had been captured by
tho radicals. The new collector was,
therefore, sent for, and no doubt re?
ceived positive instructions during
his visit at Washington, for immedi?
ately upon his return the decapitation
commenced. - New York Herald.

Speaking ftor the South*
An interesting lecture in behalf of
tho South was delivered at the Cooper
Institute, New York, ort last Friday
evening, by the- Hon. John W.
Fowler. His subject was "Cotton
Growing, in its Relation to the Inte?
rests of the North and the Induce?
ments now Presented for tho Invest?
ment of Capital in its Cultivation."
Wo extract from thc report of the
lecture published in the New York
Dr. Fowler, during the course of
his address, remarked that planta?
tions, once the seat nf wealth and
fashion, were now abandoned to the
undisturbed possession of roving
beasts- many of tho most princely
mansions have l>een left dilapidated
and tonantless by means of tho late
civil war. Southerners themselves
told them that tho desolation is fear?
ful, and they were without the means
of effecting a change. Thc freedmen
would not work without assurance of
ample compensation. Therefore, the
South must receivo sustenance and
support from other districts. The
South was crippled, and in view of
this deplorable condition, what were
the duties of the peop'e in theNorth
ern States? Some people would Ray,
let them raise themselves now that
they are fallen through their treason;
but ours was a Christian, nota Pagan
civilization. It constitutes reason for
passion as the. guide of human con?
duct. When they took the prostrate
foe, and raised him up and blessed
him, tlioy threw oft* the mortal and
put on the divine. But ho would
base his appeal on the basis of inte?
rest Patriotism also demanded that
the North should seek to raise up the
South from its present position. To
sacrifice pecuniary advantages to sa?
tisfy a feeling of roveugo was not the
besetting sin of Uncle Sam. (Ap?
plause. J Under the operations of
the manufacturing interest, the couu
t ry had become ten times richer than
when she was almost totally au agri?
cultural power. Of all manufactures,
that of cotton was tho most profitable.
In the procoss of tiausforiniug thc
cotton into fabric, and in the manu?
facture of machinery for that pur
pose, how many persons received re?
munerative employment? Was there;
not liing in this consideration t> in?
cite thom to restore the Southern
cotton-growing States to their former
prosperityV Any other policy was
simply suicidal. Tho Southern States,
in their ordinary condition, exported
3,000,000 bales of cotton per annum,
for which they brought into this
country iT'2U.U0<),0<K). Under the
present, condition of things, it was
far di li?rent Surely, there was not
a person in tho United States who
was not interested in the condition of
the Southern Stites and their im?
mediate amelioration. Cotton was
gold. Duty and interest were
powerfully combined therefore.
The South were at one time purcha?
sers of Northern goods lo Hie amount
of Silo,OOO,OOO per year. Who
would turn their backs upon such
customers. Tu the past tho South
had looked to the North for goods,
and if the North was wise the South
would do so again. [Applause. | Tu
the disposal of our manufactures the
East and the West, as well as the
North, were interested in the re-gal?
vanizing of the South. There were
other considerations. For example,
there were taxes which the South at
present was unable to bear. Uncle
Sam had his hands on tho public
pocket with an iron grasp, and if thej
refused to como to the relief of the
South they would have to bear the
burden of tho debt and taxation
alone. He then proceeded to refer
to the condition of the freedmen,
auil demanded that they should .re?
ceive opportunities of employment
by the North creating a demand for
labor. If to redeem Southern terri?
tory it was necessary to sink our
Moating capital, its compliance would
be a sagacious policy.
The lecturer thou enunciated the
following propositions, viz: To restore
the South tho North must: 1st.
Supply the people of the Southern
States with pecuniary means to carry
on their agricultural and cotton grow?
ing pursuits. 2d. Buy and cultivate
cotton plantations. 3d. Encourage
emigration from the North and else?
where. Dr. Fowler then concluded
his lecture in a few remarks upon the
glorious future before the country
consequent upon such a wise and
statesmanlike policy, as would restore
the cotton-growing States to their
The speaker closed his address
amid much applause. The lecture
was delivered under tho auspices of
the "Association for tho Advance?
ment of Science and Art." The lec?
turer has presented some sound views,
but with what effect on the capital?
ists of Gotham remains to be seen.
The Abbeville Banner says that
on Friday night last, Mr. Freston
Belcher, after retiring to his room for
tho night, was handling a loaded pis?
tol, which was accidently discharged,
tho contents passing through the
body, about t ho centre of the stomach.
Ho has since died.

The Fetiinn Movements.
The latest despatch wo find in rela?
tion to tho Fenian movement, in out
New York exchanges, is a special to
the New Yc?k World, dated B?llalo,
June 2,3 a.m.:
I hove just received from Canadian
sources the latest and most important
news in reforenco to the Foni
movement. Tt is now ascertained
that tho Fenian invading forco has
been compelled to relinquish its in?
tention, by reason of a blockade, on
their communications, with this side
of tho Niagara. They broke np their
encampment at the mouth of French
mare's Creek about 10 p. m., destroy?
ing all superfluous arms and ammu?
nition which they had taken across,
and h ive divided into bands, with the
intention of penetrating tho Cana
dian interior by stealth, doing what
damage '.hoy can to railroads, canals
and other property, in the capacity of
raido*?, instead of a fighting army.
If thc regular British troops now
on thc move can bc evaded, a re?
union of the Fenian forces at some
strategic point will be striven for. If
not, and if aid expected from this
side is not speedily rendered, the only
course left open must bo a general
scattering ami retreat; without sup?
plies, they will be forced to exist on
the country they traverse, and they
will bo unable to oppose the forces
now on tho move against them.
Trains arrived at Suspension Bridge
during the night have brought l,.r>iio
British regulars and part of tho artil?
lery, whose aim was to move up the
Ene and Ontario Ko.nl and attack tho
Fenian force, which has by this time
entirely vacated their encampment.
The World says of the movement:
This movement lakes the Cana?
dians unawares and unprepared. The
abortive movement of the Fenians
against New Brunswick had so cov?
ered their order with derision, that.it
was deemed safe to dismiss tho Cana?
dian volunteers to their homes, and
it will require some time to recall
them. If, mean while, thc l'en ians
should get possession ol' the St. Lau
renee (tanais and the (?rand Trunk
Railway, Hoy will spread infinite
alarm throughout Upper Canada, ami
cut off all hope of succor from the
mother country. The Fenian forces,
if they succeed in getting across (he
bonier armed, will consist mainly ol
veteran soldiers who have served on
one or the other side in our civil
war, while the defence will consist
mainly ol' raw Canadian militia, nove?
under the. Upper Canada is a rich
grain-growing district, abounding in
cattle and swine; and the invaders,
once there with arms in their hands,
can easily subsist on tho country.
Until this sudden movement ii
further developed, it will bo difficult
to estimate its importance. As yet,
it looks like a desperate ami brainless
venture, hazarded by thc Fenian
loaders to redeem their organization
from contempt. And yet, a - th oj
cannot bo supposed lo invite a rope
tition of the derision which followed
the Campo Bell?) ?u.<*t, they mus?
have persuaded themselves that the}
have a chance of success.
