Vm. H. Bajrne) Editor and Proprietor. FAYETTEVILLE, Ji. C. JAItfTJARIT 273 1049. INTERNAL IMPROVEMENT BILL. The great and leading measure of this session ofour Legislature, is the great Internal Improve ment bill, which has passed both Houses and be come a law. We have not yet been able to get a copy of the bill, but as well as we can learn, it provides that the State may borrow two-thirds of the amount necessary to build a Railroad from Goldsborough, intersecting the Wilmington rail road at that place, by way of Raleigh and Salis bury (and perhaps Greerisborough) to Charlotte. The said amount to be subscribed by the State only alter individuals, shall have subscribed the other one-third. It is estimated to cost three millions of dollars. The bill also provides that if the stockholders to the Raleigh and Gaston Railroad will put said road in good repair, and relay it with T iron, the State will release them from the payment of the bonds now due to the State, and make them half stockholders with the State. Whether those stockholders will raise the jamount .necessary $-300,000, we are not informed. The bill further provides that the Raleigh and Gaston railroad shall be extended fourteen miles further to Weldon, so as to intersect the Wil mington and Petersburg loads and the Portsmouth royd. Individuals to subscribe half the money necessary, and the State the other half. It further provides for the removal of obstruc tions in the Tar and Neuse rivers, from their in tersection with said railroads to clear navigation. We have not learned what amounts are deemed necessary for either of these last named improve ments. The bill further provides that the State furn ish three-lifths, or $120,000, of the amount ne cessary to build a Plank Road from Fayetteville to Salisbury. This improvement, we have not the remotest doubt, will be made. With regard to the great Central Railroad, we have no doubt that it will be found that three millions of dollars will be entirely incompetent to complete such a work. The distance will be at least 200 miles, 100 directly across the country; running counter to the valleys of the rivers, and crossirg many streams ; and accord ing to the usual cost of railroads, we should say its cost would not fall short of twenty-five thou sand dollars per mile; at which rate, the road would cost five millions of dollars. For instance, the Metropolitan route has been suryeyed and estimated by a thorough-paced engineer, and the cost is set down at $;1,000 per mile. Any one acquainted with the different sections of country through which these roads would pass, must ad mit that it would cost nt least $7,000 per mile more for a road by the Central route than it would by the Metropolitan route. We are not making these remarks to throw stumbling blocks in the way of the Central road; but it seems to us that they are stubborn facts which it is as well to look in the face. The bill passed the Senate by the casting vote of Sneaker Graves. LT. HELL'S SWORD. Through the polite ness of his father. Mr Wm. Bell, of the U. S. Arsenal at this place, we were shown on Wed nesday, the beautiful sword presented by the City Council of Charleston to Lt. Ralph Rell of this place, who went to the Mexican war with the Palmetto Regiment. The scabbard is of silver, with gold mountings, all beautifully wrought. Among the engraving, are the names " Contreras, Cherubusco, and Chapultepec," the scenes' where American valor made an impression not only on Mexico, but on the world. It is the handsomest sword we have ever seen a noble tribute from a noble people ; and we doubt not will be nobly worn, as it has been nobly won. THE rELEGRAPlI. In the Charleston Cou rier of the 23d inst.,is a communication from Mr J. J. Haley, making a proposition to the Stock holders of the Washington and New Orleans Tel egraph Company, to lease the whole line from them, for three or five years, and pay them 7 per cent, on their investments. lie says he makes this proposition from a firm conviction that the investment is a good one ; and that in the hands of private owners it can be made more profitable than under the management of a Company. And also to show the public that he was sincere in all he said an J did to induce subscriptions to the stock. Mr Haley is highly spoken of by all who know him; and if he can give the company satisfactory security, we have no doubt they will accede to his proposition, if we are not mistaken in sup posing that no dividend has ever yet been declar ed since the line was in operation. Gen. McQueen has a majority of seven or eight hundred over Mr Monro, in the late Congres sional election in the Cheraw district, says the Gazette. PENSION AGENCY. We learn that Mr George McNeill, a long es tablished and well known merchant of Fayette ville, has been appointed Pension Agent for North Carolina, in place of the late Mr Huske. The Raleigh Register says that the ru mor published in the Standard, to the effect that Mr Badger had determined to resign if the Slavery resolutions were passed, has no foundation in truth. Genl. Taylor will start from his residence, Baton Rouge, on the 1st of February, for Wash ington city. The newspapers have a rumor that Mr Clay will accompany him. Mr C. has been to New Orleans ; and it is said he will be sent to the Senate again by the Kentucky Legislature. $3- On a short visit to the Arsenal on Wednes day last, we were glad to see that the founda tions have been raised of two large buildings, which Capt. Bradford informed us were for gun carriage houses, paint shop, coal depositories, &-c. And we were glad to learn from him that there is expected an appropriation for two other buildings. ns- THE SOUTHERN CAUCUS. The caucus of southern members of Congress which was held at Washington city on the 15h, 1 was an adjourned meeting that had appointed a Committee to prepare an address to the people of the South, in consequence of the passage by ! the House of Representatives of resolutions look- ; mg to tne abolition of the slave trade in the Di tnct 01 Columbia. Mr Calhoun was appointed with Mr Bayley of j u prepare the address. After doing so, they submitted it to their committee to de- ouulu ue laQ DeIore tne caucus ; or not; and after a warm discussion.it was de cided by a bare majority to let it go before the caucus. The caucus assembled in the Senate chamber on the night of the 1 5th. There were 34 south ern men absent, out of the 120. The doors were closed, and no reporters were admitted. Gen. Houstoa, however, moved to open the doors, and let the proceedings be public, as it looked, he said, rather too much like a Hartford Convention. But it was objected that the meeting had no means of keeping order in the galleries, and as for the proceedings being secret, every member could consider himself a reporter, and give the facts all the publicity he desired. The address was, read by Mr Venable of N. C. It was mainly a narrative of the many aggres sions of the people of the northern States in vio lating the constitutional compact in regard to southern rights. It proposed no action, and therefore, we should have supposed, at least in offensive enough. Messrs Clayton of Delaware, Stephens and Toombs of Georgia, Morehead and Underwood of Kentucky, and Gentry of Tennessee, all whigs, opposed the address in set speeches. Messrs Calhoun of S. C, Bayley of Va., Gayle of Alabama, Mason of Va., Westcott of Fla., and Jeff. Davis of Miss., all democrats but one, advo cated the address. Messrs Berrien of Ga., and McKay of N. C, spoke in favor of some action, but were for mod erating the tone of the address. The address was opposed on several grounds: one of which was, that organized bodies of men existed through the States, reaching into Canada, to aid slaves in escaping from service; the proof of this position was wanting. Another reason was that the address declared that the North had raised a fjlse issue by charging the South with legislating in Congress with the view of extending slavery, while the South openly denied the charge, and proclaimed that there was no authority to restrict or expand slavery. Mr Toombs could not sanction this, as he had taken opposite ground in Congress at the last session. Another reason for opposing the address was that it offered no definite chart for action, but left all at sea for the future. The addiess was finally recommitted without instructions. Mr Berrien moved instructions but they were rejected. The committee is to report next Monday, un til when, the meeting stands adjourned. Several members of the committee were ex cused from further serving ; among them Messrs Stephens, Clayton, Rusk, Chapman and More- head. After the reading of the report. MrFooteen deavoured to get it out of the hands of the meet ing, giving it a private character, and making those only who signed it, responsible for it. This motion was declared to be out of order. The convention sat until after one o'clock and the address was recommitted by a majority of two. So that, let fanatics or others, anybody and ev erybody, do what they please .towards violating the Constitution, by vindictive assaults upon slaveholders by enticing slaves away from their masters, and withholding thern, and indeed, often forcing them away from their masters, whether they wish to go or not, the south is powerless to resist. There is no unanimity in her councils, and every man must fight on his own hook. It is said, and is no doubt a fact, that the aboli tionists at the north are drunk with joy at this confusion and disagreement among the southern men. They will now play a bolder game than ever, and the next step may be to march their armies into the slave States and take off by force what they cannot entice away. We shall next probably see abolition shallops hovering on the southern coast to take off such fugitives as are anxious to see their northern brethren. (3 It affords us no pleasure to say it, but the fact is as plain as the noon-day sun, that the whigs of the south are the delinquents in this business. They have refused, almost in a body, to support the action of their authorized com mittee, while the democrats, almost in a body, have advocated the action of the committee. ' This is a sorry sight." It gives a sign by which the slaveholder may know, that let the abolitionists do what they may, he -has no security that his brother south erners will be united to resist. Such will be the impetus and headway given to abolitionism by this failure, that we shall not now be surprised at anything they may do. Washington, Jan. 24, G. p. m. Mr Calhoun's address to the Southern people was adopted last night at the ad journed meeting" In the Senate Mr Foot made an attack upon a card of Judge Mc Lean which appeared in the Intelligencer of yesterday. He was replied to by Mr Corwin. GOING GONE ! Last Saturday morning we parted with Mr James K. Johnson, a young man of Fayetteville, who has started for California. A wek or two ago, Mr Geo. W. Lawrence left us for the same destination. Another one ofour Fayettevilleans, Joseph B. Starr, son of Mr John D. Starr, will start from New York. And about three weeks ago, Lieutenant Ralph Belt, of this place, sailed from Charleston, S. C, for the ' land of promise." Others will no doubt soon follow. - So we go ! This is a great country. Those above named are all quite young, and very worthy, good fellows. With half a chance, they will be rich in ten years. We like to see young men exhibit a spirit of enterprize. A young man should never waste his prime in whittling sticks around home when he might go forth into the world and make a name and a fame for himself. The Raleigh Register, Fayetteville Observer, and Mr Tod R. Caldwell, a member from Burke county, all pitch into Mr Clingman's "address" like "a thousand of brick." We guess they might now be brought to confess that some of the hard things the democratic presses have said of Mr Clingman, about his abolitionism, are true. 0c5" Tickets to the Inauguration Ball, at Wash ington, on 4th of March, are sold at ten dollars. MR CLINGMAN'S ADDRESS. The Hon. Thomas L. Clingman, who is the pre sent Representative of the first Congressional District of North Carolina, and a whig of the most unmistakeable stripe, was the opponent of the Hon. Geo. E. Badger in the late canvass in the Legislature for the office of Senator. His opposition to Senator Badger created some in- ' quiet feelings in the whig ranks, and he was handled rather roughly in private conversations; and the whig press did not praise him loudly Inconsequence of this, he has deemed it advis able to set himself rectus in curia in a right position before his whig friends, particularly of the aforesaid first district; as he has heard a ru mor that his own party will take measures to de feat his election hereafter. His defence is in genious, and calculated to make an impression on his constituents, the people of the mountain dis trict. He commences by reviewing the course of elections in this State, and the localities of the recipients of office. He sets down the length of the State, from east to west, at G50 miles, and says that most of the Senators and other high officers have been taken from the middle and eastern portions of the State; which is a fact well known. The west, he says, by her heavy whig majorities, enables the whigs to elect their Governor and Legislature, and then the offices are given to persons living in the middle portions of the State. All of which is tolerably true, but Mr Clingman would, never have said anything about it, if any other western man than himself had been defeated by Mr Badger. There are some strong points in the address; and if we had room, we should publish it; but at present there are matters of much more in terest to our readers than the complaints of a whig who has been "gouged" by his brethren of the " decency " party. We must say, that the Fayetteville Observer's comments on Mr Clingman's address are not characterized by justice. But that is not sin gular. Mr Clingman gives a very amusing history or narrative of the manner in which the "central' clique" at Raleigh, manage to get all the offices of the State for their favorites. It is quite rich, and no doubt a true picture, "drawn from life." This address of Mr Clingman contains the let ter ot Messrs Calvin Graves, Geo. Bower, W. H. Thomas, D. W. Courts, A. H. Shuford and S. J Ferson, to Mr Clingman; and his reply. Those gentlemen, having been induced to be. lieve that Mr Clingman might possibly command enough democratic and whig votes to elect him, concluded to try how far he would come over the line which divides the two parties; and ac cordingly addressed him a note asking him 1st whether he thought congress ought to charter a U. S. Bank, and whether he would, as a senator vote for such a charter 2d Whether he was in favor of repealing the tariff'of 1846, or a material modification of it. 3d Whether he thought the sub-treasury ought to be repealed. 4th Whether, in his opinion, Congress has the Con stitutional power to legislate upon the subject of Slavery in the territories. To these questions Mr Clingman gave answers highly satisfactory to the democratic gentlemen who addressed him; as they would have been to any democrat. Indeed from his answers, it would hardly have been suspected by a stranger that he was a whig ! With regard to a Bank, he answeied that" the State of the country, as well as the condition of the public mind, furnished decisive objections to any such measure." With regard to the Tariff, he answered that he was not in favor of its repeal, but believed some modifications necessary ; and preferred that the present tariff" should be amended rather than repealed. With regard to the sub-treasury, he rather dodged the question, by saying that he had no doubt that some alterations should be made in it, but he was not prepared to say to what effect. With regard to slavey in the territories, he went the whole figure, and answered that he considered the adoption of the Wilmot proviso, or any such measure, " as gross a violation of the constitution as the government could commit." Thus it will be seen that he held out strong inducements to democrats to vote for him. He spread his net in the most captivating manner, and sungsyjen notes to them. The future will disclose how sincere were his professions. Qd-The Baltimore Sun says that the whig members of Congress from Pennsylvania have held a meeting at the Capital, and resolved to ask Genl. Taylor to make Mr Andrew Stewart secretary of theTreasury! That is a bold move, for the tariffites. COM MEN I) ABLE LIBERALITY. lt deserves to be mentioned, as of last ing credit to those members west ot the Blue Ridge, that every one of them voted, from first to last, for the Central Railroad. In the Senate, Messrs Thomas of Hay wood, Wood fin of Buncombe, gave it their prompt and hearty support; and in the Commons, Messrs Hayes, Hicks, Love, Coleman, Farmer, and Edney rallied to it, and did all in their power to secure its pas sage. Mr At kin of Buncombe, had re turned home on account of ill health; but we have no doubt he would also have vot ed for it, had he been present. We have no hesitation in saying that we approve the course of Mr Dobbin in this matter, and that we would cheer him on by every means in our power. A differ ent route from the one which he has so eloquently advocated, would perhaps have redounded more to the interests of his im mediate constituents; but finding that the Central Road was the only one which was likely to succeed at present, he threw him self forward in its favor, and forgetting for the moment all other considerations, he devoted all his energies and efforts to the State at large. But should this road be constructed, his constituents will share in the general welfare ; and in addition to this, if the Plank Road bill should become a law, (as we hope it will) his own people will at once realize, from that as well as from other measures, the benefits of his ac tive and untiring labors in their behalf. Raleigh Standard. SHAD. Fresh shad made their appear ance in our market on the 19th inst. Wil mington Chronicle. MR DOBBIN'S SPEECH On the Central Railroad bill. The Raleigh Register, in noticing the speeches and votes on the above.named bill, says : " When we entered the Hall, the floor was oc cupied by Mr Dobbin, and we regretted that we had lost a single sentence of his able and spirit stirring speech. He contrasted the poverty and desolation which our supinenss had brought on us, in spite of great natural advantages, with the flourishiug condition of States which had adopt ed liberal systems of internal improvements. He said that North Carolina should not hesitate to go in debt to the amount of three or four millions, in order to carry on extended, but judicious plans of improvement. We had nothing to do, he said, but to instruct the State Treasurer to advert ise that North Carolina wanted to borrow four millions, and ten times the amount would immediately be offered her. The citizens of the little State of Massachusetts, which was not much larger than his pocket handkerchief, would alone lend us a much greater sum, and never feel it. " How," inquired Mr Satterthwaite, " is little Massachusetts able to lend us so much monej ? How did she make it?" She is enabled to do so, replied Mr Dobbin, because years ago she com menced, and has continued to carry forward, an extensive system of internal improvements. It is because she has accomplished what we have yet to begin, that she has her millions to lend. With a territory less than one-sixth part of N. Carolinashe has now more population, and by actual assessment near four times as much wealth. The city of Boston alone is worth more than the whole State of North Carolina. If North Carolina will imitate the noble enter prise of Massachusetts, said Mr Dwbbin, we, some twenty years hence, may lend our millions to some far off" frontier State, which then may be as needy as we are now. Mr Dobbin Was frequently applauded by the members, in spite of the Chairman's efforts to preserve decorum. Indeed, a man must be stoi cally indifferent to the welfare of his State, not to be moved by such eloquent appeals." The turpentine Distillery of Amos Wade at Newbern, was burnt on the 13th inst., together with 5,000 bbls. of turpentine. Loss nearly 815,000. 03" A number of the whig papers are copying the following sentence from a Washington paper: Gen. Taylor in his letter to the President, resigning the office of Major General in the army, uses the following characteristic language ; I have been called by the people to serve in another capacity, and therefore resign this present commission." We did not suppose, when we saw it, that Gen. Taylor would make an ass of himself by writing such stuff to the President ; and we see that the Union confirms our opinion, by saying there was nothing of the kind in the letter. There are some great fools in this world! Fools of twenty-four carats; and they try to make out Gen. Taylor no better than themselves. " Save me from my friends, and I will take care of mine enemies." MARRIED. In this. town,. ont Thursday evening lasf, Mr"' eth'ro Howell to "Mis .Amey Hsp-ville.

A CURIOUS DELEGATE. The admission of Mr H. H. Sibley to the floor of Congress as a delegate from Wisconsin, or some other place, is rather an unprecedented circumstance in our Legislative history. But it appears that when the State of Wisconsin was surveyed, and the boundary run, a large slice was cut off, and the inhabitants of this slice elected Mr Sibley to re present them ! and he has been admitted. He is said to be the first member of Congress known, who represented no government. It is also said that a large slice was cut off" of the territory of Iowa, when her State boundaries wrere fixed ; and that she will profit by the ex ample, unless the present Congress forms a ter ritorial government forMinesota territory, which they probably will do, and thus include these pieces of territory in one territorial government. 03 The Cheraw Gazette, (in noticing the fact that Mr Bancroft has found the document among the archives of England, which establishes the somewhat disputed fact that Mcklenburg county, North Carolina, is entitled to the honor of pro mulgating the first Declaration of Independence) suggests that the State of North Carolina should erect a monument in " Charlotte Town," to com memorate the glorious deeds of those patriotic citizens who acted so boldly in that day of trial. The Gazette is ahead of the North Carolina press in this matter, which is not creditable to the latter. Nevertheless, we heartily approve the suggestion, and hope to see it carried out at no distant day. A monument worthy of the event, worthy of the actors in it, and worthy of this great Union, ought to be erected there by a grateful people. OCf- Commodore Jones says that a number of the best men of his squadron in the Pacific, de serted from the service to go to the California gold diggings, leaving behind them large balan ces due from the United States, amounting in all to over 10,000! So Uncle Sam will make something by that operation. New York, Jan. 17, 4, p. m. Money has become exceedingly abun dant under the influence of those causes which I indicated, as in operation to pro duce it, towards the close of the fall busi ness. It is now with some difficulty that money can be placed on good securities at all, and many brokers accustomed to take in money at call, have, during the week, turned away considerable sums at any price. This is the case, notwithstanding that much speculation exists in many ar ticles of produce at advancing prices, naturally requiring more money. From the Charleston Mercury Jan'y 24, by Telegraph. Baltimore, Jan. 23, 6 p. ni. Ford has been inaugurated Governor of Ohio. He was the whig candidate. Lewis Cass has been elected to the Sen ate from the State of Michigan. Washington, Jan'y 24.

The bill was finally passed. A Dkkam Fulfilled. The Boston Travellerrelates an extraordinary instance of the fulfilment of a dream. A physician 01 that citv dreamed that he wasroinj in at the iron gate of a friend, a small dog flew out and bit him in the calf of the leg. He sprang up in bed, and to his wife's inquiry as to what was the matter, said that he had been bitten by a dog in the leg. His wife replied by a poh that can't be ;" but the doctor, imagining that he felt the pain jumped out of bed, lit a light, and searched for the supposed wound, but found that leg was untouched. He ac counts for the pain by the concentration of vitality in the place supposed to be bitten. But the strangest part of the affair followed: About a week afterwards he was called to visit at the house w hich had been the scene of his dream, and as he entered the iron gate, a dog flew out from the house and bit the doctor in the calf of the leg, in per fect accordance with his previous dream. The family were much astonished to find that; the dog should. bite any one, but were still more surprised when the doctor related the antecedent circumstances. The Pen and the Swokd. Fable. The sword of the warrior was taken down to brighten ; it ha I been long out of use. The rust was soon rubbed oft", but there were spots that would not go 5 they were ol blood. It was on the table near the pen of his secretary. The pen took advantage of the first breath 01 air to move a little further off. "Thou art right," said the sword, I am a bad neighbor.'' u I fear thee not," replied the pen, 1 am more powerful than thou art ; but 1 love not thy society." ' I exterminate," said the sword. ' And I perpetuate," answ ered the pen; where were thy victories if I recorded them not? Even where thou thyself shall one day be in the lake of oblivion. ' The Smiths in Danger.

At the upper side of this lawn is the dwelling, and about a hundred yards to the right of this, is the small faini Iv cemetery where Marion is buried.whilst just in the rear there isa large garden, which nature anu art nave contnveu to adorn.
