THE NORTH CAROLINIAN, FAYETTEVILLE, N . C.
NOETH-GAHOLINIAN. FAYETTEVILLE. N. C. Saturday, April 7S 1855. Western Railroad. An adjourned meeting of the stockholders of this Company was held o:i Thursday afternoon last, to consider a new contract about to be i from Beaufort Harbor to Fayetteville. Sec. 2d Fayetteville and Beaufort Railroad. A friend has furnished ns with a copy of the charter of the Road from Beaufort to Fayette ville, th company to be called the "Central Railroad Company." Below we give a synop sis. of its provisions : Section 1st authorizes the formation of a company with a capital stock of two millions of dollars, for the purpose of building a railroad made by the present board of directors for the construction of the Railroad to the coal fields. We were pleased to learn that the proceed ings of the board met the unanimous approba tion of the stockholders, and authority was given to consumate the contract as soon as some conditional subscriptions are made availa ble, which wc understand will soon be accom plished. We hope, from the unanimity of the meeting on Thursday, that our people are now deter mined to take the matter in hand seriously, "and go to work and build the road at once. We shall endeavor, very soon, to publish some parts of the reports heretofore made to the stockholders by the late President and Engi neer of the company, which will be of service in . . .

The Washington Union of the 31st says : "The health of Secretary Dobbin is so much improved that he expects to resume his official duties to-day. He has had a s'evere and pro longed attack of illness, and the country will be glad to learn that his present condition is such as to warrant the belief of an early and complete restoration to his wonted state of health." The Washington correspondent of the New York Journal of Commerce says : "The Secretary of the Navy has so far re covered from hi; severe indispositiou as to be able to attend to his duties at his office, but he is far from being in vigorous health, and much needs temporary relaxation. He will, after attending to urgent business, which lias been rlIordd v bic illfiocc rotiro " fnr !l. short, time to his residence in North Carolina.

Tysor, of Chatham county, writes to the Fayetteville Observer, that he has just built a bridge across Deep River at a iriiicre. ivir l vsor Closes ins communication with the following sensible remarks : "I have a free road and a free bridge to Fayetteville; carry all my Flour there; never complain of the inspection; am well pleased with the people; have traded with them more than $10,000 in the last two years; keep up a good market myself; wish to buy 20,000 bush els wheat of the next crop at cash trade, and will give more than any body else."

The whigs and know-nothings will have a majority in the Legislature. The four Congressmen elected are anti-administration. J6- Gen. A. J. Dargan, of Anson, at Stan ly Superior Court week before last, announced himself a candidate for Congress in the Dis trict represented by Hon. Mr Craige Shaving Saloon. The shaving and hair dressing saloon of Mr James G. Smith's, in the Fayetteville Hotel building, surpasses anything of the kind in the State, and is equal to any shop of that description in the larger southern cities. He has refitted his establishment at considerable cost, and a visit to it will convince any one that Mr Smith is a tasty man and an adept in his business. Mao Stone.

About the curative nronerties of such nutans 4 1 ' . . v. our readers, no doubt, remember to have heard a great deal. It is said that it will cure hydro phobia, or at least prevent it. Many persons who were bitten by mad dogs, have visited Virginia, to avail themselves of a stone of this description, and miraculous escap3s from a most horrible death are reported. TirE In-graham Medal. In compliance with a resolution of Congress, a medal is being pre pared to be presented by the President of the United States to Capt. Ingraham for his gal lantry and decision in the Koszta affair. The medal will be four inches in diameter and will contain about $300 in gold. The engraving of the dies will cost over $2,000. From California. The steamer Daniel Webster arrived at New York on Saturday from San Francisco. News unimportant. The steamer was stopped on her outward passage by a Spanish sloop-of-war, and her papers ex amined. Later. The steamer Star of the West ar rived at New York on the 3d inst., with &239 . 000 in gold. Business in San Francisco was depressed and nearly every article of merchan dize had declined. At Sonora the depositors broke open the vaults of Messrs Adams fc Co., through a com mittee, and paid themselves, leaving a balance Lehiud of $8,000. ize the subscription on the part of the town of any amount proposed by the corporate authori ties thereof. And the payment of stock are to be made in the bonds of the town and county respectively. Section 30th relates to the raising of money to meet the instalments on the county or town subscriptions, giving authority to issue bonds, or to raise the amounts respectively by taxa tion. Note. It will be seen by an advertisement that the Commissioners named above are required to meet at Jacksonville, Onslow county, ou the ad May. Virginia. The contest for Governor in Vir ginia is warm and spirited know-nothingism and whiggery against democracy. Many demo crats who had joined the secret party are leav ing it, and taking sides for Mr Wise, the demo cratic candidate. Mr Wro. R. Johnson, a democrat of Abingdon, one of those who with drew from the order, after stating the decep tion practised upon him to induce him to join, says : "I was disappointed, and ascertained that the representation of its American and national principles was a deception. My oriIal views were confirmed; it was the old John Adams federal party re-established, and bound togeth er by awful oaths. I was mortified disgusted. Instead of finding whigs and democrats mingled together, when I looked around the room, out of a crowd of sixty-five or seventy persons, not one democrat did I recognize; but, ou the con trary, the entire party was composed of the hottest, bitterest, and most violent old "blue light" whigs I ever kuevv. I could see a chuckle on their couuteuunces at "the fellow they had caught." Forty-seven have withdrawn from the Har per's Ferry council and eleven from the Win chester council, as we see by cards published and signed by those who have withdrawn. Wilmington Exports. Among the exports of the port of Wilmington for the year ending March 31st, 1855, we find the following : 24,272,840 feet of lumber, 95,930 feet of river lumber, 1,29(5,846 feet rough timber, 5,791,050 shingles, 44,130 bbls turpentine, 112,031 bbls spirits turpentine, 446,499 bbls rosin, 33,765 bbls tar, 2 bbls pine oil and 100 bbls rosin oil, 1,953 bundles paper, &c. Election in Kansas. Returns from Kansas Territory show the Election of pro-slavery men in all the counties heard from, and it is thought that not an anti-slavery man has been elected to the. Legislature. JteS Mr C. C. McCrummen is authorized to collect and receipt for any monev due this office. Also, to receive subscriptions. Scientific Schools.

Railroad Conventions. A Convention! those interested in the Western Extension the N. C. Railroad, was held in Newton, tawba county, on the 21st ult. The eounl of Rowan, Burke, Iredell, Alexander Caldwell were represented. Resolutions proving the action of the Legislature iu reg tlii future Itjwas said, sometime since, that diversity of opinion existed in the Cabinet upon this subject, but, 1 if this has been true, it is no longer so. Necessarily a difference of impression existed as to rianner, time and quality of redress; yet then is a perfect concurrence between the Free dent and Cabinet as to the essential point; necessity of a rigid enforcement of onr de mands. The Spanish government will make ?e paraiion and this war rumor will end in smoke. The New York Herald is again at its dirty work. The assertion of its Washington cor icspoiident, that the President will not feel it his duty, hereafter, to snpress filibustering ex peditions against Cuba, is utterly untrue, as is the assertion that clerks in office here, from Virginia, have permission to visit the State to aid in the election of Wise." JJST" Judge Lumpkin, of Georgia, who was recently appointed a Judge in the Court of Claims, has declined, preferring to give his services to his native State. In the Field. The Greensboro' Patriot of the 31st ult., has the following in relation to Hon. John Kerr : - "We learn that our Representative in the last Congress, the Hon. John Kerr, made a public speech at Ashboro' the early part of this week, and announced himself a candidate for re-election to Congress. We heard remark made by one who was present, that Mr Kerr's speech was very long, able and eloquent; and that the Know-Nothings received a full share of his I sarcastic invective.
