Tlie great amount of ad vertising matter which has been pressing on our columns of late, and crowding out matters of much greater interest to our readers, has satis fied us of the absolute necessity of making arrangements which will enable us to ac commodate our advertising patrons without detriment to our subscribers. We have determined, therefore, to enlarge the pa per, get new type, press, &c , and relit the entire office in a superior style. After these arrangements are completed, Mr William J. Yates, an excellent and ex perienced pjjnter, will become a part-owner of the establishment, having the control of I he publishing department. Yhen this design U peifected our readers will have tlue notice thereof. D. K. McIJak, Esq., has -announced his with dr.iw.tl from the canvjss for Congress in this district.

There was no insurance on her. The Canvass ix the Mountain District, between Messrs Clinman and (J.iither, is going on in a siriteil manner. The friends d both candidates profess to be-sannine of success. Mr Chrvrr.an is usin', witU considerable effect, the circumstance of a whijj editor (Mr 1 1 v -man, of tfie yX.-heville Spectator,) having been brought into the Dinfjict to write him down, which editor formerly in Wisconsin, supported f r the ntlice of tiovenmr, I'arwell, a F'ree-noiler.

Wilson, Es.p, has commenced the publi cation of a weekly new-paper at Salisbury, call ed the " Republican Banner." The Ran tier is democratic in politics, as a matter of course. It could not he anything else under Mr Wilson's management. It will prove, we doubt not, an able coadjutor in the great work of disseminat ing democratic principles throughout the land. We wish the Banner great success. Com mkxcemkn r at the University. Hon. A. (). P Nicholson, of Tennessee, will deliver t! dilress before the two Literarv Societies. Rev. Francis L. Hawks, I). D. L,.

We have re ceived a catalogue of the Trustees, Faculty and .stmlent of this Institution, for the present year ending June 12th, IS 03. It seems to be in quite a flourishing condition, numbering upwards of otic hundred Students. The health of the place during the present session has been uninterrupt edly j;ood. CJ-Ceorge D Boyd, Esq., of Rockingham Co., is the democratic candidate for Congress, in the nth district, in opposition toR.C. Furjear, Esq, of Yadkin. Mr Boyd is a gentleman of conside rable experience in public life, and of excellent sense. We hope that the democrats of the oth district will put forth every honorable effort in their power to elect him. 3- We publish in another column a card from Mr Lawrence Badger, late editor of the Free Tress, a democratic paper published in Wil mington, in which he assigns the reasons which have induced him to retire from the editorial management of the paper.

Manlj, the In on the copper mine of the North Carolina Cop- tendant of Police was called toMhe Chair, per Company, in Guilford County. x Dr Jackson is a man of great eminence in his profession, and is State Geologist of the States of Maine, New Hampshire and Rhode Island, and also to the United States. He makes an exceedingly favo rable report, of which the following is the clos ing part : 'In conclusion, I would congratulate the N Carolina Copper Company on t he possession of ; the richest and best known copper mine in the !

You have been singularly fortunate in having a mine lhat pays its own expenses, while the regu lar preparations for more extended working are in progress." copper AGAIN. The Washington correspondent of the Charles ton Courier, writing under date of May 15th, says : The North Carolina copper speculation is now absoi bing attention. jlr Simeon Diaper sold, I lie other day, some of the stock at a hundred per cent, advance, and also some fifty tiiousand dollars worth of the copper. The stock ot the company was divided into a hundred thousand shares ot live dollars each, and the shares are selling at ten dollars. What we shall do with ail the copper that is to be brought into the market from North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Minnesota, and Ali chigan, is a question. But, at present, it commands an exaggerated price, and a ready Ktie. A NEW ISSUE. The New York Tribune has lately, in an arti cle on "the use of a whi party," proposed a new issue on which to rally the broken and defeated battallions of whipery. The Tribune combats the idea which is enteitaincd by many, that the uhmici iwiiviiuii nit o 1115 i'ui 1 f 1 -3 vi'ivt - , . 1 and restrain the excesses of democracy. I here is no necessity in its estimation of fastening a fifty-six to the coat-tail of the democratic party, to prevent it from doing something drev.dl'ul. In all this we entirely agree with the Tribune. The pity is that we have not had the benefit of these admissions long ago But the Tribune proposes a ?ictv issue, and what think you it is ? The building of the Pacific Railroad. Coon skin and hard cider carried the day in 1S40 Military glory did the work in 1S1S, but failed in '.32. 1 f we could 1 i ft aside the veil of futurity, what should we see arid hear m'Sfi ? Instead of Chip pewa, Chepultepec Scott songs, &.c, we fancy we can hear s me whig orator looming out in impassioned strains somewhat after this manner: Lives there a man with soul so dead, Who never to himself hath said, I'll take a shovel and a spade, A box of pills in case of need, And to the great. West I'll go with speed, And build the Pacific Railroad or bleed ! FOR F.l G N AFPOINTM ENTS.

W. D. II AY WOOD, CA'i. James M. Towles, tsecy. NORTH CAROLINA COAL MINES. We clip the following from the article of a recent number of the money N. Y. Courier and Enquirer. Prof. Jackson, the Geologist, has just completed a survey of the Mining property of the North Carolina Copper Company, of which there has been so much said of late. These mines are situated in Guil ford county, accessable by river naviga tion from Wilmington to Favetteville, and thence by plank road to within eight miles of the works. The richness of its ores, their inexhaus tible supply, and the facility with which (hey can be got within the reach of the different smelting works, has opencil a new era in copper mining in this country. We learn the Company are making the most liberal arrangements for extensive operations in mining; by sending down machinery of the most approved plans, and euploying experienced and competent Cornish and Get man miners. The working of the mines thus far, with but thirty men and rude machinery driven by horse power, has already produced re sults far beyond the most sanguine expec tations of those familiar with copper min ing and yielded to the comp.iny a sum equal to a dividend of ten per cent, upon the par value of its shares. With the force already at the mines, it is estimated, that from 15 to 20 tons of ore can be daily raised, the value of which is 3,500 to 3,600; and when the new ma chinery is put up, the same force will be enabled to produce 50 tons per day with greater facilitv and ease. The company is now preparing a re port of the capacity of the mine, which will embody an exposition cf its finances, char ter, by laws, and such information as will be desirable to its stockholders. The character of the survey made, must satisfy all who have had doubts of the im- ' lllpne deposits of ore immediately at com- mand; the supply of which, is ot such vast importance to the commerce and wealth of this country. 1 4Grandpa. where do the people get their fasions from?" "From Boston?" 'Where do the Boston folks get them from?'' "From England." And where do the English get them from?" From France. " And where do the French get them from?" Why, right straight from the devil: there now, stop your noise.". A CARD, T ' Democracy of this District : My soul aches. To know where two authorities are up, how soon confusion v May enter 'twixt the gap of both, and take The one by the other." Coriola.nits- We have never filled a space in the pub lic eye sufficiently large to make it other than vauity and presumption to come out - . 1 8 r . i . . -r -l - - . low, the use of the caption is not an arro gance, while the remarks following it are due to ourself, and doublv due to the Democratic party of this disti ict. It is quite generally known that, for sev eral months past, we have been acting as Kditor ef the Democratic Free Press, in AVilmington. We attempted, in carry ing out our ideas of the mission of a Dem ocratic Editor, to pursue, so far as our :n ditlerent ability gos, a fearless, inde pendent course, promotive of the unity, the harmony, the security, the permanence of the Democratic party embracing all those principles, usages, and doctrines, lor jaLih it has contended and struggled through every national and sectional vicis situde up to the period of their triumphant success in '-JG, and the unparalleled en dorsement of their success in the nearly unamimous election of Gen. Pierce. N e have endeavored to make the "Press," while under our humble "auspex," a co organ fwith the other Democratic papers.) of the party as an entirety and have ilis courased and discountenanced everv reck less effort to engender or foster a faction. Pursuing this course, with a sincere and steadfast desire to contribute everything in our power to the general unanimity, and nothing to a local rapture or personal schism in the party, we thought it condu cive to such an end to consider and sup port Mr Ashe, as its well-understood choice i'or Congress; a choice, which, while it was peculiarly agreeable to his own party, contained in it elements of considerable popularity and acceptable- ness with the Whig. Everything we could learn regarding it, but strengthened and enlivened our convictions in the matter, and made it more and more con clusive to our mind that our course was correct. The course pursued by the old er and more experienced papers of the District the 'Journal'"' and the "Caro linian"' entirely confirmed, and assured us of the rectitude of ours. But tlie "Cabinet was not a rm7," that is to say those having a controlling inter est in the financial operations of the'Free Press" honorably, and conscientiously, no doubt, differed from us. We were will in": to reduce the disagreement to a Unit through a purchase; but the others con cerned were unw illing to relinquish their interests, and but one resort was left us, which was to retire from a position tliat could only embarrass us, and perhaps render unpleasant tiie relations existing betwepn the parties involved. We have retired. The "Free Press'' is no longer, in any shape, under our entire or partial control. It has passed to abler, and per haps more prudent hands. In retiring, we abate not one jot or tit lie of the interest w e have felt, encouraged i :r......i :. - e ,i. i.. unu in t 111 lesieu in toe cicluuu ui iuc taic popular and able incumbent. We retire strengthened and enlivened, in the belief that neither the Democracy as his parti, nor others as his constituents heretofore, are ungrateful and impolite enough not to return him to the well cultivated field of his former labors with a triumphant, an overwhelming expression of their grati tude for his services, and ol their entire approbation of the manner in which he has discharged the trust confided. Our sphere of political activity will be humbler and smaller during the remainder of the. campaign; but we consider it in cumbent on us, in justice to the party, to Mr Ashe, to our recent positiou, and our consistency and sincerity to improve every opportunity the narrower sphere affords, to promoting the success of the candidate whose merits and title we have heretofore advocated. We will, we hope, be borne with while adding further, that if, when members to our national councils have become popular and influential, beloved by their own par ty, and respected and esteemed by the opposite one,) they are to be thrown aside; to be thrust oft just as they have fairly entered up;u the threshold of distinc tion to themselves and usefulness to their constituents, they will cease to aspire to posts of service and honor ; ami impure men, who will use no industrious and hon est eifcwt in a laudable strife to emulate each other in worthy conduct, will come in ; the only contest will be to make the most selfish and corrupt use of brief terms of public service. In view, therefore, of the whole, we urge upon our brother Democrats, and upon Mr A. 's constituents of all parties, to sustain their tried and faithful repre sentative at the polls We are not vain nor arrogant enough to urge this course from any force or strength it deiives from our advocacy of it ; but because its naked, unadored merits present a strength and force of their own which have made an irresistible appeal to our judgment, and which we apprehend are urgent, convinc ing and forcible enough, to have made the same impression upon hosts of others. We have here indicated the reasons and motives which influenced us to consider Mr Ashe the preference of his District, and consequently our decided preference: they have proved incompatible, with the views and wishes of the major control in the management of the Free Press, and we consequently withdraw. But these reasons and motives have lost none of their force with us, and will attend us 'till the day of the election, and on that day, will fifl u with a lively anticipation of a happy and righteous result, which w e expect, in some measure, cheerfully to contribute to. Respectfully, yours, X, B A DO K II . Teachy's,Duj)Kni N. C, May 23, 1852. Singular Duel. Kendall, in his last letter from Paris to the New Orleans Pic ayune, gives the following amusing ac count of a duel: An original and most singular duel, and a most ludicrous withal, was fought here in Paris a few days since, the parties being a couple of coachmen driving for private families.

There was no let up on either side, on the con trary, they belabored each other with a will which showed the violence of their hatred. The shouts ami oaths of the com batants at length reached the ears of some of the gendarmes in the vicinity, who came op and arrested both while still unmercifully cutting each other right and left, and marched them off to the guard house. One of the belligerants had receiv ed a severe I i 1 . ! 1 or gash across the lace, the other l-ad an ear almost cut off, and both were Severely punished about their heads and shoulders. All accounts agree that both parlies . behaved with tlie great est coolness and gallantry while thus set tling their affair of honor. Central IIoad. Three cargoes of iron for the Central Road have reached Wil mington from Wales, making altogether between five and six hundred tons. Be tween three and four hundred tons have already been delivered at the junction, and the remainder will be brought up during the present week. The track-layers will com mence their work sometime next week. To lay a mile requires 94 tons of iron, consequently enough is on hand to lay six miles. Before that has been completed, other cargoes are expected to arrive. The Bridge over Little Uiver is entitelv completed, except enclosing it, and is ready for the track. Goldsboro' Patriot.
