have no riht so to trillc with those

in the first instance they should bravely
stand to their conclusions. It is not
they, as individuals, who have done it
but the sworn othcers ot the law; it is
not their caprice nor their passion, theii
hate or their prejudice that solves the
ipiestioti of uill or innocence. It is tin

apK-aI to mob law so ready and t're-

when it is cnlorccd with certainty. Its
uncertain cnforfcnifiit argues that so
ciety has no rights to be protected; and
that all the machinery of law is to be
used only for the protection of thosewho
assail those rights. When such comes to
be understood as rccopiutcd distinction,
then society, when outraged, will take
the law into its own hands. It will be
justified in so doinj;, lieeause all other re

The last Ilcndcrsonville Times says:
"Work on the Mud creek canal has
la-en delayed by the heavy rains for over
a week. It will licpn as soon as the wa
ters subside sutlicicntly lor the hands to
U into the swamp, liveryboily on the
creek has "conic in" and will do the
work, thereby obviating the necessity of
an assessment. The commissioners de
serve the thanks of all for the very effi
cient and impartial manner in which
tliev have located thcroutc. When these
lauds shall have been drained thev will
lie the richest, not onlv in this section
but the entire Slate."
We notice it lieeause the work to lie
done interests not merely Henderson
county, but affects beneficially the finan
cial condition of the whole State by the
additions to lie made both bv State and
county revenue. The area to be brought
into cultivation is lietweeu 1 .1,1 Mil I and
UD, 11(1(1 acres of land cxiilieranlly rich, cs
liccially productive in corn and grasses.
Mr. Darker, who lives on the south side
of the creek, opposite Ilcndcrsonville, has
proved its value, his corn crops standing
as thick and luxuriant on the tracts he
hnsililclieil and drained as if they grew on
the Mississippi bottoms.
The existence of a broad creek Imttoni
reiuiriiiK the work of laborious and
costly drainage npiicnrs to lie an anoni
aiy in tue mountains, ami is imiecd a re
markable one. Mud creek, rising a few
miles west of Hendersonville, in a range
of mountains jutting out from the Blue
Kidge towards the north with an exten
sion of eight or ten miles, first flows cast
parallel with, and a very few feet liclow
the summit level of the Illuc Kidge, which
is along here much depressed 2,2"i) feet
nnd with very little cost, might Ik
drained over the mountains into the val
ley of Hungry river. Hut the barrier is
high enough to divert the course of the
stream northward, in which direction it
flows for a few miles, when it again turns
westward, and falls, after a course of
about twenty miles, into the French
Broad only six or eight miles below its
source. Throughout its whole length,
with the exception of the upper tributary
branches, it flows through a flat swamp
of front SIM) to I, Mi) yards in width,
resembling, except in its vegetation, the
swamps of the eastern counties, nunc
more so than LuiiiIht river in Richmond
and KoIhsoii counties. The growth is
water oak, red birch, maple pine, and a
thick tangle ol brainhle, graic vines and
cane. A strongclcarcuncnt of from thirty
to fifty feet wide passes through it, cut
ting out of the bank in high water, form
ing numerous thoroughfares and mud
lagoons, hid in the summer with the pond
lily. The soil is very rich from source to
mouth. There is not a particle of mias
ma, and one may enjoy as pure anil
healthful ail close alongside this swamp
as on the top of I'isgah. Neither arc
there any mosipiilos.
Thecllcct of reclamation now going on
will lie to add a large bodyof arablclauil
to the area of cultivation, every inch ol
which, except that taken up by the cur
rent, can be put to use. livery acre will
produce, with ordinary skill inciiltuiv.nl
least fifty bushels of corn, ur three Ions
of grass. And the opcrationo!" drainage,
owing to the greater fall ol water ran lie
effected with much less difficulty ami
greater completeness than nllcmls the
drainage of the swamp lands in the east
ern counties. We regard this aslhcinosl
important work vet undertaken in this
section except that of railroad construc

The Swain Count v Herald gives an ac
count of a railroad meeting held recfulb
in liryson City to consider the feasibility
of making railroad connection bclwrrn
t he towns above named. It is a subiffl
wi ll worth considering, well worth push

Swain count ies should exert their ctlorls
to effect it; the fust county more

Among the projects '.-onsiilcrcd was
that of an electrical road. That is by
no means a fanciful or chiniercial project;
lor the day perhaps is noi far disianl
when electricity will lie a universal mo

.-asc il is premature, besides being ton
costly for the means ofilic projectors.
Such road would be isolated Iroui all
others, dependent upon iis own machin
