of plain or mountain, and propose to give
another name told character to his cap

in tnc mountains of North Carolina. Hv
ideutlv those soft hearted creatures think
those mountains areas bare and desolate
and uninhabited as the Sierra Mailre;
that the preceding generations of Chero

killed and scalped and burned, until
there is neither man, woman nor child,

The Charlotte Chronicle of the ol ll pre
sents a very suggesiivc incident which

future of that city, ll is a description of
all the incidents to the great enterprise of
the Charlotte 1 hi and l;eriili;cr compaut .
The lesson is that the Southern people
are slowly, but surely, learning lo ntili.e
cither what they have thrown to waste,

How many million dollars lor instane-c
have gone out ol the Stale to purchase
the fertilizers by which the cotton that
comes to the Charlotte market, the
Mecklenburg planters can answer with
many a groan and sigh; and how' many
thoiisandsoltons.il cotton seed have
been pitched as refuse oul of the gin
houses to rot ami w aste, or find a grudg
ing use as a halt recognized manure.
These same farmers may now recall ve lib
something 'ike shame al their own stit
pidilv when they see what science, ingen
uity find sagacity have done for them in
converting these despised seed into an
oil that enters into valuable economical
uses, into a rich ingredient lor fertilizers
or into nutritious food lor slock. The
waste and the ignorance of one genera
tions, is the subject of the industry and
source of wealth to the succeeding one.
The factory and its concomitants are
on so large a scale as to merit notice as
grand Charlotte and North Carolina
enterprises. The oil mill embraces a seed

roek, engine anil boiler house, fertilizer
warehouse 120x100. To this is added a
ginnery of brick, three stories high, with
capacity to clean 100 hales of cotton a
day, the lint cotton I icing baled on the
premises by two steam compresses. The
company has also a brick making plant
with capacity of 30,000 bricks a day.
Last but not least, will be constructed
cattle sheds, where 2,000 cattle will be
fed and fattened on cotton seed hulls and
This is certainly a great enterprise. It
is a stride towards that iudejicudence at
which the South should aim in its indus
trial life, and an awaking tip to its re
sources to which it has been so blinded.
Charlotte, conspicuous as as a railroad
centre, is now roused to avail itself of all
ils great advantages. It cunnot claim
to invite to its charms as a pleasure
resort, but it has manifold claims as a
business and manufacturing centre. We
