The man with rood machinery can manu facture profitably and aell at a price at which the one with poor machinery would be ruined. If then we apply this princi ple to the lranpottatinn of the raw male rial, bread stuffs, and other article of con. sumption in manufacturing ettahlishments, it needs no argument oi calculation to snow that he who can make uae or a Kail Knad for this purpose can always under sell thoe who ate without the accommo dation. Thi is ilia' true secret of the sucf of the Northern manufactories ; the liberal system of internal improve ment at the North has cheapened the tiansportation of their supplies. I doubt lint, it would 4 prove upon investigation, that the transportation of a bag of Cotton front the interior or (Jeoifia in the vicini of her rail mad Jo Lowell, costs less than the transportation lo many manufactories in North Carolina, within a hundred mites of the Cotton fields. . : The reduction in the price of transpor- tation in us t he attended at least with the working of the existing establishment p to their full capacity, and with their stxs cess the erection of others will follow, until in course of time, the Suite will be come a manufacturing and by conse quence a consuming as well as producing Siate. The home market built tip by the Manufacturing establishments will stimu late, encourage and foster the agricultural tniereM, which is the great interest of the Slate. And thus the great ends of govern ment will be accomplished by the silent workings of the system of internal im provements, without doing violence to the theories or prejudices of any one. The greatest lienclit will be conferred on the greatest number. In fact all will be bene fited. For the Nmtli Carolina Rail R 'ad ii not a mere line of Rail Road accom modating a single line nf travel and ope rating on h narrow, section of Hie State; there is scarcely, any poriion or any in tercut in the State that is not benefited by this work. It traverses nearly the whole length of the State, it is the Central Rail Roal projected by the old and ardent friends of internal improvement, crossing the channels of some of ihe principal livers, bringing their water falls and Man ufactories into the actual vicinity of the Seaboard. It would be 'difficult to plan a work, so properly, so obviously and so essentially a Slate work. I he people themselves have made it so by their wide spread and unprecedented individual sub scription of a million of dollars, and by their endorsement of ihe copartnership ol the State from one end to the other, in her sub?eriptio ol two million more That they will not be disappointed in their expectations, I am qui)e aure, unless it should turn out, and there is no reason why it should he to, that the same cause in Not th Carolina will not produce the anm effects as the other Slate, North, Sonth, East and We3t. In thone State il is found tint rail roads relieve the bur. len of taxation. Fit by the difference in the cost of iransnortation by common roads and by rail rnad, which may be .stated at about two to one. Secondly by VucfeHaiitir the taxable urnnerty on the line of the road, a general reduction of laxca j.w inndc, thus lessening Hie taxes on land einre remote, giving them an wb'i ttoiul iaj .e, and thus the benefits of th w find ws have not spsce to-day, and mart post pone what we have in Ivpe on that subject to our next bnue. ; The Korfu Carolina Rail Road. : By re mice to our advertUing columns, it will be seen that the contract for ths woik oa ths Road will be let out on ths whole routs between ths 20th of June and tbs 8th of July at Hills borough and Graham on ths SStb and 27th of Jane..

Deep excitement pervaded the assemblage, say the editors of ths Patriot, snd pretsils throughout the community to an extent they have never seen before. The following re solution waa adapted by scclsmition, and evin ces s resolute determination on the part of ths citizens of Guilford to free themselves from such pests peaceably if they can, but forcibly if they mustt .. littolvcd. That a committee of fire be appointed to notify Adam Crooks and Jesse McBride, persons who are said to be emissaries 01 abolition societies at the North, immediately to leave this County, and that if they fail to do so they must abide the consequences. We nndeistand that, information having been received that Crooks or McBride had made an appointment to preaeh in the county on Sunday t another meeting waa held in GrecnsWough on Saturday last, and further action determined up on, the result of which we have not learned. The Bank of Cape Fear. When we no ticed, two weeks ago, the rejection, by the stock holders of the Bank of Caps Fear, of the set of Ihe last session of the Legislature to increase the capital of that institution, we supposed the act was based on the demand foi additional banking The Bridge work oa the whole Road amounts ' excitement appeared to be greatly on the in to 2.720 feet. ' ! crease. The clearing is embraced in the item of " ex cavation." The ptice is fixed according to ihe smount of clearing, which varies in different sec tions of the Rosd. The able report of Maj. Gwynn, Chief Engi neer, will be lound in to-day's paper. Our read ers, we feel certain, have been anxious to ace this report, and it ia therefore unnecessary for us to say any thing to induce them to pet use it. We see that Maj. Gwynn, in bis report, confirm the opinion ao generally entertained, that Ihe stock in this road will be valuable. He aays : M I have no fears of the tesult, and feel in no need of travelling beyond the bordcra of the State in search of trade and travel lo demonstrate the pro ductiveness of the atock of the Xorth Carolina Rail Road." We learn from other sources, that Maj. Gwynn baa expressed a pretty confident opinion that the atock would yield aix per ceut. without reference to through business. If this opinion be correct, and we add ihe through bu- sin ess, (which must necessarily be very conside rable, aa this Road will bs an important link in the chain of communication from North to South, thia stock bids fair to be aa profitable as any Rail Road atock in the whole aouthern country, and capitalists will find that they have missed a good chance of investment by not taking more of the atock in thia Road. Although ao much of our apace ia already oc cupied with thia aubject, we wiah to add a few p nnta ahnnt thn location of the Road. Thia IS a State work in part, and the opinion baa been entertained by some, that the road should have taken a atiaight course from Raleigh through the centre of the State. If any dissatisfaction baa existed because such a location of the road waa not made, we think the Report of Major Gwynn ia calculated to remove the obiectiona. The face nf the country presented so msny diflicul ties to the construction of a Rail Road in a di reel line from Raleigh to Salisbury, that after a careful rcconnoirance Msjor Gwynn . waa capital in the State, and expressed the opinion that the interests of the public would have been try to see whether the Constitution could better consulted by an increase of the capital of j be put down or not. If thia article of the to ths President snd bis Cabinet st the Irving House ia New York, ia presence of President Fillmore, aod surrounded by a Northern audi. ence. Tbs following is an extract from ths Speech of Governor Graham : M When the Constitution was framed, every' State surrendered a portion of its sovereignty and in, order to form that Constitution, the South had made some sacrifices t well as the North. They were for the benefit, however, of all the parts. Among those obligations wa on to surrender fugitives from slavery. The South .would never have agreed lo live un der the came government with the North il the North was to become the refuge ground of their runaway euve. In e paraiion, either by commercial restriction or by arms, it would have maintained its rights lhat no neighboring noweis should disturb its peace and its property. The Conatitution happily guaranteed lo the South what by the comity of nation, il had a right to demand, that a neighboring State ehnuld not be tempting off it peo pie from their home, or throwing in fire brands among that people by templing their servants with impunity to run away. To that Constitution the Whigs of ihe South expected the VVhigs of the North 10 live and abide by it rn good faith and to execute its provisions. It was a matter of conscience, therefore, for every N 01 th em man who took an oth to suppoit the Constitution, and such an oath was tak en by every man who held an office, from the highest officer down to the Constable ; and he knew nriconsience party thai could so well enforce the duties of conscience a in enforcing an obedience to an oath, and to the Supreme Constitution of the State. One of the Compromise measures which it -had become the duly of the ad ministration to act upon was this surren der of fugitives. All the rest were of but comparatively little importance to the South, and this was only made uf the gravest importance by enabling the coun In 1808 h. removed to tb. united eong.eg.tion.

The Fayettevilte Observer, on noticing our paragraph, givea the following satisfactory ex planation : We think that there was no such cause for the passage of the act, but lhat H grew out of a bul for an independent Bank at (Jreetisboroiigh, which was aftei wards changed to the am as passed. But, as it was found that the Bank of Cape Fear, with its present capital, could readi ly spare the amount necessary for a branch at Grecnsbornugh, it was needless to de range its affairs by a division nf its surplus lo let in new stockholder. 1 he establish ment of independent Banks in Fayette ville, Wadesborough, and Washington, and increase or the capital of the Commer cial Bank of Wilmington, enable the Cape Fear Bank lo appropriate capital at Greensbotoogh, and would seem lo be quite as large an increase as the public wants rail lor, at present. I here is some danger of an undue expansion during thi season ol prosperity. ... . Sir. Tenable in Hillsborough. Mr. Venable addressed a portion of the people of Orange at thia place yesterday. W. hav. not space thia week lo make an extended notice of his remarks, but may do ao in our next. must aay , however, lhat hie position in thia speech waa such that th. Union men of ihe District, io our opinion, cannot vote for him their repr. Constitution could be nullified, directly or indirectly, there was no telling where nul lification waa to stop. If the Constitution was good for anything, it was good as a whine, and u could not be broken in pans. Nobody expected the whole series of Com promise me-isures lobe approved by any body, item by item S me of the Bill were very, very objectionable to large par ties of his Southern countrymen, as ob jectionable a this Fugitive Bill is in the North ; but a a whole, as a final system ol adjustment, the Whigs of the South acqui esced in ihem all. and meant to maintain them, and they expected a like acquies cence on the part of their Northern Whig brethren, in good faith. 11 there was to he again removed to tbe congregations of Haw- field and Cross Roada in Orang. county, of which congregations bs waa Pastor until within a very few years, when, owing to ths Infirmities of age, bs resigned his pastoral charge.
