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

Sf.c'y of Navy. 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
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

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

els wheat of the next crop at cash trade, and
will give more than any body else."

Ingham, the democratic candidate, received
27,000 votes; Minor, the know-nothing candi
date, 25,000, and Dutton, whig, 9,000. 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. By a communication in the

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.

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
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

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.

MrRobertson, the "acting United States

Wc learned that this Academy has been iu
operation ten or twelve years, and that its con
dition is prosperous both pecuniarily and scho
lastically. We were pleased to see such evidences of
improvement in the educational facilities of Cum
berland county, and hope the day is not far
distant when the sciences of Nature, as well as
classics and mathematics, will be experimentally
and practically taught in all our schoo
Science is applied with success to all the arts
industry, yet scientific agriculture is rareij
taught in onr schools. This need not, it shoult
not be so. The tiller of the soil, upon whjn
we all depend, should be educated for his p
fession as well as the lawyer, the doctor,
the artist.
The latent resources of affluence in our Stife
cannot be brought into action unless we In
enabled by scientific research to discover thjsi
retreat. For the outlay of every few hund
dollars iu the Geological survey of North Co
lina, no doubt thousands of capital have b
introduced within her borders, and million
wealth, before unknown; developed.
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."

and announced himself a candidate for re-election
