TELE NOMTIHL CAROLINIAN JTORTH CAROLINIAN. m Wm H. Baynci Editor and Proprietor. FAYETTEVILLE, JT. C. OCTOBER 27, 1049. 00- The editor of the Carolinian expects to be at Sampson Superior Court, where he hopes to haTe a settlement with those indebted to him. 0&-Tbo sxtraordlnary Httle bipeds, the learned cana ries, will be exhibited to-day. (See adrertiaement.) They afford a wonderful illustration of the control man can ex ercise orer other creatures, as well as the surprising ca pacity ef the creature to learn. PLANK ROAD. We are informed by the Pre sident that there are about 60 hands employed on the first ten miles of the Road, and thart the Clearing and grading will be so nearly completed that the hands from each ead will meet, or at least be in hearing of each other, by the evening of to-day. Th ere are about 120,000 feet of lum ber delivered, and more arriving everyday. A large quantity of lumber will be brought to Fayetteville by the river, and must be hauled from thence by teams. From the scarcity of wagons here now, in proportion to the hauling, those in the country who have teams, might find employment for them. We heard of two or three that are coming from Davi Json county. OCj- Eighteen American gentlemen, who were in Paris at the time of the demand of Czar Nicholas upon the Sultan of Turkey for the sur render of the Hungarian leaders, addressed an appeal to the American Minister at Constantino ple, to use all his influence and the influence of his government to sustain the Sultan in his good resolution, not to accede to the demand. But the minister having been recalled by the Taylor administration, had left. THE CENSUS of South Carolina has recently been taken by siuthority of the Stiite. It shows a white population of $'2S0,3S5. The number ol negroes was not taken. . SULPHUR SPRINGS, N. C Mr Deaver, the proprietor f these Springs, makes a statement in the Ashville Messenger, by which it appears that during the past summer, he has had 647 boarders at his Springs. Of these there were 57 from North Carolina, 32 from Georgia, 10 from Alabama, 7 from Tennessee, 3 from Washington city, 2 from Kentucky, 2 from Baltimore, and from New York, New Orleans, and Arkansas, one ech ; the balance, 541 , were from S.Carolina! THE WIRE BRIDGE suspended over the Ohio river, at Wheeling, Va., was completed on the 20th inst.. and Mr Ellet, the architect (the same who built one recently over Niagara river at the Falls) rode over it with horse and buggy amid the firing of ordnance. The people of Wheeling are delighted with their bridge. sjlj- The Raleigh Star publishes the Mississippi resolutions in regard to the Wilmot proviso, and takes a decided part in their favor. It says "we are opposed to the Wilmot proviso in every form and place." Why don't the other whig presses be ai firm ? THE RESULT IN GEORGIA. We learn from the Macon Telegraph that Gov. Towns' majority is 3416, which is a gain of 2127 votes over his vote in 1847. In the Senate, democrats 25, whigs 22. In the House, 67 democrats to 63 wbigs. ( OHIO. Mr Amos E. Wood, democrat, has been elected to Congress in place of Mr Dickin son, (also democrat) deceased. It is also fully ascertained, says the Washing ton Union, that there is a small democratic ma jority in both Houses of the Ohio Legislature A rare case, and looks bad for whiggery. MISSISSIPPI. A letter to the editor from De Kalb, Miss., says : Our elections come off soon. The democratic ticket will be carried through out the State, except in this (the fourth) District, of which there is some doubt. McWilli and Gray are the candidates. The district is democratic, but Gray being very popular, will carry more than his party vote in the eastern counties; but the election will be very close." CONNECTICUT. The Hartford Times gives returns from 79 towns, of the elec tion held on the 1st inst. Of that number the democrats had gained 19, as compared with the last fall election. Fifty towns had elected democratic officers, and 24 on ly whigs. Tliree towns were divided. East IJartfotd and Wethersfield have each elected democratic assessors and board of relief, which are gains from last year. In Bristol a liberal ticket " was elected last year, whig Union. ftJ By speakrftg of this paper as The Anson county Argus," does the proprietor of the Loeo foco sheet at Fayetteville, mean to insinuate that the Argus has a less general circulation, or pre FASHIONABLE LIFE. That high spirited lad v, Mrs Swisshelm, gives the following sketch of things behind A RAILROAD MEETING was held a few weeks ago at Hendersonville, N. C, says the Ashville Messenger, in regard to the Greenville (S. C.) Railroad. This road is built partly by paying for stock in work and materials. The subscriptions at this meeting were $13,000. This road, says the Messenger, is entirely in South Carolina, connecting Columbia and Greenville, and yet.here are $13,000 subscribed by the county of Henderson, to help to build it to Greenville, which is probably within 25 miles of Henderson ville the county scat of Henderson. ANOTHER MEETING, says the Messenger, was held at Ashville on the 10th inst, to raise subscriptions, and 18,000 were subscribed. Many of the old and steady formers, says that paper, have marched up with great cheerfulness and liberality. Ashville is about 50 miles from Greenville, but the hope of the people of Buncombe is, that when once completed to Greenville, its great ad vantage to the farmers of the western Carolinas, giving a speedy transport to their produce to the markets of Columbia and Charleston, that it will soon extend to the mountains, and over them. $31,000 subscribed in North Carolina to a South Carolina railroad. We call that neighborly, and we are jlad to see such liberality. - .. . . n sents a less grand and imposing appearance tnan , the curtain, in the drama of fashion 7 his own miserable little, Cross-Creek, fifteen-ny- Thprp ara hnn,lr.i. . r - twenty concern, palpably miss-called, unblush- "5re hundreds of girls in every inlT nicknamed" The JS'orth Carolinian'" 'arSe CIJ who parade the streets in feathers, The North Carolinian!!

Bat it would have been much more so if he had put it in Latin. The editor takes a hint very well. We might have supposed that Anson was peopled by the Latini, as much as the Argus was printed gen erally in Latin, a language not much used by the masses, and when much used by editors, is con sidered an evidence either of pedantry, or that hi s paper is only intended for a few doctors and lawyers, or now and then a learned professor. We never assumed to give the humble "North Carolinian " " a grand and imposing appear ance." It would then have misrepresented its State and people. We leave grandeur, &.C. to be displayed by those who have to make up in that way their lack of more useful traits. Our sheet " appears to be big enough for the little town of Fayetteville, and our aim is to make it useful to its patrons, rather than to furnish them a large sheet fit only for waste paper, Of course it is necessary that the large commercial city of Wadesboro should have a very large newspaper, and a good deal ef Latin in it. We are not so imposing." If we live on Cross Creek, we are thankful that we are neither cross-eyed nor cross tempered; nor sit cross-legged at prayers. The Argus newspaper reminds us of an ex tensive farm on a sand ridge, where the corn stalks look like they had the consumption and the corn all nubbins. drud The barque Eureka, which we noticed last week as having started from Cleaveland, Ohio, for California, by way of the great lakes and the St. Lawrence, was found too large to go through the Welland canal. What will be done with Mammy and Josh " in that case ? A stray paragraph in the papers says that a machine has been invented and patented, that will unload a wagon "in no time." 0O- We see that the " undivided two-thirds of the Natural Bridge" in Virginia, is offered for Sile in Richmond. It must be nearly new, as Gen. Taylor said it was not built when he went along there. THE MORMONS. A part of this religious sect are located in Covington, Ky., and publish a small paper. They appear to be highly incensed at the other Mormons who have settled in the new territory taken from Mexico, and declare that those Mormons are conspirators against the United States; and that they art under an oath to aenge the death of Joe Smith, their prophet, who ws killed in the Mormon rumpus some years ago. It is all gammon, no doubt. HURRA FOR ROBESON. We learn from a friend that a gentleman own ing a piece of land on Ashpoe Swamp in the low er part of Robeson county, has raised 90 bushels of corn to the acre on it. We call that hard to beat, in this section of country. To be sure we have heard of 300 bushels to the acre, but we were not green enough to believe that it could be done. STATUE OF MR CALHOUN. By a communication in the Charleston Mer cury, we learn that the great American sculptor, Mr Powers, is accomplishing a statue of Mr Cal houn. It is expected to be ready for shipment to this country in a short time. The place of its erection has not been determined, but will probably be in Charleston or Columbia. A few gentlemen of Charleston (the writer says) con tributed the amount among themselves to pay for its execution.' A BAD SIGN. A physician who would place a tomb stone out for a sign, would be thought very silly or very eccentric, but we see a drug gist in Wilmington has a representation of an urn with his advertisement. It was probably intended for a mertar and pestle, but we should call it a mortal pester. OCJ- The Wilmington Journal says that there is a family in that place directly descended from Oliver Cromwell, the Protector. INTERESTING INTELLIGENCE. The Pa ris Moniteur, of the 5th instant, states that the French Government entirely disavows the con duct of M. Poussin, and announces the appoint ment of M. Bois le Compt, at present French Minister at Turin, to be Minister Penipotentiary at Washington. Wilmington Commercial. GEORGEY SHOT. The last foreign arrival brings a report from Vienna that Gen. Georgey had been shot by a brother of an Austrian officer whom Georgey had ordered to be shot. For the Ca rolinian. "Mr Bayne: I hope I dont intrude I just dropped in to ask a simple question of our Cor poration Attorney, if we have one ; if we have none, will the Magistrate of Police answer it. Has any person a right to monopolize all the li censed wagons and drays that haul about town, and to and from the landing? or have they the right to so monopolize any considerable portion of them to the detriment of the general business of the place. A SUFFERER. October 25, 1S49 TEMPERANCE STATISTICS. We learn from the "Spirit of the Age," that the fourth annual session of the Grand Division of the Sons of Temperance, met in Raleigh on Wednesday the 17th inst. There were 57 representatives from 24 sub ordinate Divisions. It appeared from the vari ous reports from 67 Divisions, that the number of "Sons" in those 67 amounts to 2,500. And it is estimated that the remaining 13 Divisions which neglected to report, might swell the num ber to 3,200. Last October, the whole number in this State was only 500. The following are the officers of the Grand Division for the ensuing term : JaxneTStTNpis, of Salisbury, G. W. P. Geo. D. Boggan, of Wadesboro, G. W. A. A. M. Gorman, of Raleigh, G. S. J-.ms T.itrhford. " G. T. Win. T. Shields, of Hillsboro, G. C. Henry Hardie, of Chapel Hill, G. S. J M. C. Breaker, ofNewbern, G. Chap l-ir. Key. S. Pearce, Travelling Agent. The semi-annual session of the Grand Division is to be held in Newbern on the fourth Wednesday ia April next. AN ADMISSION. In remarking upon the conduct of the Secretary of State in conducting the foreign relations of the government, the Pennsylvanian siys that so palpable are the blunders of this Department of the Government, that the New York Courier and Enquirer, which is a staunch defender of the administration, is compelled to declare : "That errors in judgment and errors in policy are inevitable ; but we freely confess that these errors have been more numerous, or, at least, have been rendered more palpable under the ex isting administration, than that of any of its predecessors." GREENS, alias COLLUDS. A correspon dent of the Wilmington Journal, writing from Six Runs, Sampson county, tells of a "colewsrt" (what an outlandish way to express cabbage by, when every body uses the short, simple, modest, phonetic word " colluds ') over 7 feet high, and 41 feet in diameter. That is the tallest colewort we ever heard of as we recollect. It would take the " big pot in m the little one- to cook it, and giant Lambert to eat it. There cannot be any cholera in that, or itiever would have grown so great. John Tyler and family, of Virginia, are at the Irving House, New York. John Tyler? John Tyler? Who's John Tylir. Boston Bee, a whig paper. Why John Tyler is a tolerably honorable gen tleman who in 1S40, stooped to make a tool of the whig party by which to hoist himself into the Vice Presidency; and at that time was thought by the whigs to be one of the greatest of hving men Tippecanoe And Tyler too, , Who but who. But when the time came round for the whigs to make a tool of him by making hirn foreswear his former political faith, he served them as the gun did the sportsman kicked them ov-r. CCJ- Charles Napoleon Bonaparte Evans, (what a log tail our cat's got,) editor of the Milton Chronicle, (a whig paper that the editor of the Standard keeps for his amusement) has been ap pointed Postmaster at Milton, N. C, says the Hillsborough Recorder. The editor of the Re corder says: "This is as it should be." In course it is. " Scratch my back and I'll tickle your elbow," as the classics have it. But the Recorder jays " he is honest, capable, and faithful to the constitution." Well, we will not question his honesty for his family's sake, if he has any ; but as to his being capable, if he is like he used to be, it depends much upon the state of his equilibrium. As to his being faithful to the constitution, he has rather over shot the mark in that regard. The constitution gives ev ery man a vote, but he tried to rote twice in the same day; and only got off from prosecution we believe, by proving that he was in a most disin terested state of unconsciousness. " United we stand, divided we fall '." A wag says this is not true in regard to the "Sons of Temperance," for the more "Divisions" they have, the better they stand. Very true, for every Division is an addition, and multiplies the whole. Mr Fremont, (Mr Benton's son-in-law,) hae accepted the appointment of Commissioner to run the boundary line between Mexico and the United States, in place of Mr Weller, who wan appointed by the last administration, and who had entered upon his duties. A PARODY. There is a very touching little song, the first stanza of which runs so jje thing like this: When lovely woman stoops to folly, And finds too late that men betray. What art can soothe her melancholy. Or wipe her shame away." The Richmond Republican, under the Police head, where a drunken woman was taken up for vagrancy, committed the following parody on it : " When lovely woman stoops to toddy, And finds too late, that drams betray What art can hide from any body. Her tipsiness by night or day." Health of the City. In will be seen by the report of the Board of Health that the deaths for the week ending last Satur day, were only 24, and that the deaths by Strangers Fever were but 13. The new cases now are few or none, and although the disease may not absolutely disappear till frost, it has ceased to excite attention. Charleston Mercury. IMPROVED WAREHOUSE. We have examined a Warehouse, built by our enterprising fellow citizen, John A. Taylor, Esq., back of the Store of Barry, Bryant & Adams, fronting on Wilkinson's Alley, having an opening on an eight-foot alley in the rear. The Warehouse is 68 feet long, 28 feet wide, two stories high j walls 2 brick thick, firststory ; on the second 1 5. faced with Wood's best pressed brick. The first floor is made perfectly rat-proof, having a concrete floor, 6 inches thick, with a stone foundation below it. The doors and window shutters are Iron, with hooks fastened into stone which runs through the wall ; the jams of the doors are protected by bars of iron worked in the walls ; it is covered with tin and a parapet wall all round. It was built by J. C. & R. B. Wood, and is quite a model concern, being entirely fireproof and rat-proof no insurance against either being; thought necessary by Mr Taylor, under whose supervision it was erected.- Wilmington CttnmerciaL For two days only, Commencing at 8 o'clock, SATURDAY night. gery, toil late and earl v. with vrv little clothing j while their hopeful daugh ters spend their mornings lounging in bed, reading some silly book, taking lessons in LATE.- We see it announced in the Rich mond Republican, that the Hon.

Thousands of women in cities dress elegantly on the streets, who have not a sufficiency of whole some food, a comfortable bed, or fire enough to warm their rooms. 1 once board ed in a genteel boarding house,' in Lou isville ; there were two young ladies and a piano in the l ouse hall and parlors handsomely furnished The eldest young lady the belle wore a summer bonnet at ten dollars a silk and blond concern that could not last more three months silk and satin dresses at two, three and four dollars per yard, and five dollars a piece for making them, and the entire family, women, boys and babies, nine in all, sleep in one small room, with two dirty bags of pine shavings, two straw bolsters, and three dirty quills for bedding no sheets, no slips, and there on the wall hung the green, and white satin, the rich silk and lawn dresses. These ladies did not work. but played the piano, accordion and cards; and nearly broke their hearts the week we were there, because another, who I presume lived just as they did, c alled on them with a great clumsy gold chain on her neck. None of them had one, and Miss Labi i ml a, the belle, could eat no supper, and had a fit of the sulks to console her for the want of a chain.
