Egk- The general feeling which pervades all classes at Washington is that hostilities are inevitable at an early day. The forces concentrated at New York, something like three thousand in number, have been or dered South, and shipping provided for them. Of the different rumcrs as to their destination, it is difficult to speak ; yet the shuffling and shambling in regard to Pickens and Sumter leave ground for the supposition that they may be intended for either or both of these forts, and the activity and watchfulness at Charleston, and the concentration of troops at Pickens, appear to add lorce to mis view 01 ine case. It would seem as though the Montgomeryauthorities have either received information of the intentions of the Administration at "Washington, or divined them from a knowledge of the movements of troops, either made or ordered. There is evidently something in the wind. There is that pecu liar feel in the atmosphere that precedes, and, we might say, indicates a storm. There is that sensation that somehow leaves little doubt that something serious is at hand, and whether it be true, as reported, that General Beauregard yesterday informed Major Anderson that he must prepare to evacuate or be shelled within forty eight hours, there can be no doubt that in Charleston the speedy commencement of hostilities is regarded as inevitable, and all have made up their minds to it. Among the other rumors, is one that the troops from New York, or a part of them, are intended for Texas, ami are sent at the request of General Houston, who has been deposed from the Governorship ; another one is, that an attempt will be made to land forces near Charleston and take the batteries in the rear, while an armed flotilla attacks them from the harbor. Still an other version is that a heavy force is to be concentrated at Key A Vest and the Tortugas, to operate against Pen sacola and the mouth of the Mississippi. iiWe must await developments, hoping for the best. Jn pursuance of a resolution adopted by the Southern Rights meeting recently held in the Court House in this town, the following gentlemen have been appointed as the Executive Committee of the Southern Rights Association of the town of Wilmington : qPPEB DISTRICT.

S8 "We fear that our fellow citizens in Raleigh are becoming slightly " obstropolous " in the way of semi occasional fusses there arising out of party matters. livery week or so there is something or other We know that these things lose nothing by travelling and they do travel until really people will soon take up the impression that Raleigh is hardly a safe place. Od Wednesday last there was some fuss because a flag was put up on private property. Surely the feeble minority of secessionists cannot be held responsible certainly the Register is right in saying that these things must operate against those calling themselves Union " men, who have the decided preponderance in the City. We trust it will not be considered mulJlesome on our part if we d'-precate the existing state of things, which from the position of Raleigh as the s at of Government, as sumes proportions of importance beyond its merely local character. Johnson's New Illustrated Family Atla3, Published bij Johnson A Lrowi.xng, Richmond, Va. 1861. Mr. F. G. Rowe, who is agent for the above work, has called upon U3 with a specimen copy, and we have given it as full an examination as our limited time would ad mit of. It appears to us to be truly a valuable work, and we can adopt the following remarks from the Rich mond Enquirer, convinced that they will be substan- tiallv borne cut bv an examination of the work. The Enquirer says : We have just examined a sample copy of Johnson's Illustrated Steel-Plate Family Atlas, a new work now being printed and published by Johnson & Brown- insr of this city. Among the many superiorities of this work over any we have before examined, we notice the following : 1st. It is on a larger scale, thus civing room for greater detail. 2 J. The maps' are engraved upon steel and veiy finely executed. 'M. The new surveys, explorations and divisions in our i erntones ; alao, the new counties, towns, railroads aud other internal improvements in the older States are brought up to the present time, as well as the new dis coveries and changes in the political divisions of the Kastern Continent. 4th. It gives a valuable treatise on Physical Geogra phy. oth. The maps are mostly double, extending across two pnges, thus showing the inland and commercial routes of communication from one State to another, &c. Oth. The descriptions of each country are late, and fully illustrated by over three hundred fine electrotype engravings, mostly from daguerreotype views taken ex pressly for this work. 7th. It is furnished with extra guards for the easy in sertions of new maps, thus avoiding the necessity of pur chasing another atlas for a long time. The size of the atlas is that known as Imperial folio. The maps were compiled, drawn and engraved under the supervision of J. 11. Colton and A. J. Johnson, whose atlases and maps have been for years, and are now, the standard works of their kind in America. We are glad to see a geographical publishing house of this kind es tablished in Richmond, and have no doubt it will be successful. We have ordered a copy of their atlas for our office, another for private use, and can recommend others to " go and do likewise." The work is sold only by duly authorized agents who make its sale their exclusive business. Mr. L. W. Fairchild, the agent for this city, will call on our citizens and give them an opportunity to exam ine it for themselves. We append the following commendation of the work, given at Washington last winter, on examination of the proof sheets, by members of the House of Represen tatives and United States Senators : In design, compilation, scale, beauty of execution and accuracy, Johnson's New Illustrated Family Atlas " has no superior, and in many respects surpasses Colton's large imperial folio Atlas of the world, the cost of which we are creditably informed exceeded the sum of $36,000. We heart ily approve of the idea of supplying the demand for Geo graphical works, particularly the bouthern demand, from a publishing house South of Mason & Dixon's line, and bespeak tor Messrs. Johnson & Browning the confidence aud pat ronage of the Southern people. Among other names attached to this recommendation we find those of Messrs. Winslow, Craige, Gilmer, Ruffin and Vance, of North Carolina. The Atlas contains over one hundred maps and charts, the letter-press and the charts illustrative of certain facts in physical geography and climatic influences, be ing highly interesting and valuable. Mr. Rowe will call upon our citizens, and although times are hard, still there are several in want of a work, like this, and as the mercantile advertisements say, they would do well to examine before purchasing elsewhere. jCSylf the Raleigh Standard can show wherein a defence of Southern Rights is incompatible with the purest principles of Democracy, it may then talk about our having turned renegade to Democracy. The De mocracy that does not embrace, as its cardinal principle, a defence of State Rights and consequently of Southern State Rights, is spurious, whatever name it may give itself. The Standard will have to try again. It will not do for any advocate of consolidation to accuse the friends of States Rights and Southern Rights of being renegade to principle. . Thlnga In Charleston. On the day before yesterday serious movements were near taking place in Charleston harbor. For the par ticulars we refer to the account which we take fi om the Courier of yesterday. We can hardly, from the published accounts, form any decided opinion as to the objects of the schooner, but from private advices we are led to the belief that the Charlestonians are convinced that she was making an attempt in a quiet way, not likely to attract suspicion, to slip into the harbor like a mere private coaster, and at night to put men and provisions into Fort Sumter, else why did she not come to when challenged. Naturally the excitement in Charleston is great, and the first result has been that all supplies have been cut off from Fort Sumter, and that hereafter no communi cation will be allowed between Major Anderson and Washington Citv. It is said however that Lieut. Tal- bot has been allowed to leave with despatches for Wash ington and will probably pass through this place to-day. All the companies have been ordered to their posts, but no attack will probably be made until further orders from Montgomery, un!ess au att' mpt be made to com mnnirtate. But in ti.e Dreseut unsettled and excited state of things, a conflict may spring up at any moment How that conflict must result admits of no question. The small garrison at Fort Sumter must capitulate, but in the meantime lives may be lost many of them. Mu tual PYasnpratinn ho. thp. r.onseouence. and Civil war with all its horrors be precipitated on the country. Mr Lincoln ought to know this. He must know it, but be has not courage enough to submit to a military necessi ty, even when by so doing he could prevent the useless effusion of blood, without giving no anything that it is in his power to hold. Surely, this nation must be ex piating some great sin, to be cursed with such a rule as that of these Black Republicans. Daily Jour, 5th insl. gg, The Charleston papers announce the fact that the last mortar is in its place, ai d that the ammunition and supplies are all :n possession of the Southern forces, so that every means for the sj.eedy reduction o! Fort Sumter may be said to be entirely accomplished. Yes terday Governor Picking and Cmeral Beauregard were to visit and inspect all the butteries for the last time, and to arrange matters for dee'd d action, as all the but teries are now thoroughly ready. 'I hey were to go in a private conveyance, and alone. The Charleston Courier sajs that a despatch was re ceived there on Tuesday from one of the Commissioners, to the effect that no further supplies or reinforcements were to be attempted to Fort Sumter by the United States authorities, without first informing the Southern authorities of the fact. It was also stated that the Pre sident had not the courage to execute the order for the evacuation of Fort Sumter, which had been decided on in the Cabinet. lie wants to throw the responsibility of evacuation upon Major Audersou. This whole thing about Sumter is in a " muddle " sure enough. The opinion gains ground that all the talk about the evacuation of Fort Sumter, is only a rune on the part of the Republicans, who feared to take any dtcid d!y coercive attitude at first, lest the border States should be stimulated toactiou, instead of being lulled into fatal security. The Fort was to be given up this week or that week, this day or that day, but it has not been giv en up yet, and won't be, if by any hook or crook the Government at Washington can contrive to slip in a few men and provisions. An attempt at doing so may be looked for at ;my time. Notwithstanding the assur ances given to the Commissioners of the Confederate States, the impression prevai's in Washington, that something of this kind is on hand. Any attempt to re inforce or re-provision Foil Sumter, will be sternly re pelled, and will, no doubt, be followed by very decided measures on the part of the Sute and Confederated forces at Charleston. The large surplus offered for the eiht million loan, taken at 93, will no doubt have its (ftVet upon Mr. Lincoln's Administration in increasing its confidence in its ability to coerce, by having the pecuniary means to do so An extra session of Congress is almost certain to be called. That will mean but one thing, and result in but one thing war. The Men Willi llie Carpet-Bags. Like the leaves of the forest wheu Summer is green, That host with its bugs at the White House w is seen, Like the leaves of the forest when Lincoln hath blown, That host on the morrow hath trotted right home. Byron siighluaUy altered. We did mean to say carpet bags in the second line, but we couldn't work in the " carpet." Please un derstand " carpet." The last line also might be im proved if we had time, for the fact of it is, that some of them can't raise the dimes to enable them to trot home, even if they had homes to go to. But by a stretch of poetical license, we have assumed the possession ol homes for these homeless ones, and also ot the spondulicks where withal to pay their passages to their ordinary places of abode. But the cry is " still they come," for their ' name is legion," and like the tvil spirits in the Scripture, they seem to have entered into the bodies of swine. Pity they don't run them down straightway, to the Potomac river at least, and drown them. They blockade the White house, they hang about the public offices, they annoy clerks, they make themselves nuisances generally, and while the administration ought to be doing something decisive, it is simply paltering over appointments or watching New England elections. Mr. Lincoln and his suite beat Japanese Tommy and all the other Kamis and No-Kamis. Did any mortal ever see such a bill as they run up at Albany, espe cially in the way of breaking things ! Verily that suite must have been composed of mighty men of valor. Nine bottles apiece ! (See 3d column for statement.) Our milk-and-raolasses complexioned friends of the Dominican Republic, are greatly excited at the r ported intention of Spain to le-conquer their interesting country, the independence of which, by the way, the Spanish Government has never formally acknowledged, it being a former Spanish colony. The call to arms is rich and racy. It says, " We should make a fight of giants which will astonish the whole world, and make the earth tremble under our feet !" Gracious ! Whole population of tbq " Republic," 126,500 ! It does appear, however, spite of all the denials of the Spanish Minister, that there is really some intention on the part of that country to assert authority over San Domingo. Spain will take the East part of the Island of Hayti, and France the West, the first being known as the Dominican republic, the last as the republic, or quondam Empire of Hayti. - ' Cruel. Sundry of the Federal office-holders in New York, whose official heads " Old Abe " will shortly bring to the block, received on the first ol April copies of the following card, which speaks for itself : JoHN-W.

Like the man that never preached a sermon himself, but came mighty near it, having held the light for the man that did, Mr. Doug las came near the Presidency, having held Lincoln's hat while he took the oath of office. Sometimes he (Mr. Douglas) comes out apparently all right against coercion and all that sort of thing, but the next moment he says or does something that really puzzles all observers who may be anxious to place him, and forces the most candid to admit that after all, the last recorded position is that already alluded to. He ia folding Lincoln's hat. Southern Rights Meeting In Sampson County. . We are requested to give notice that there will be a meeting of the Southern Rights citizens of Sampson county, in Clinton, on Saturday, the 13th iust. Several speeches may be expected. Sgg The Kaleigh Register can't go Henry W. Mil ler for Congress not .quite no ! Yet why shouldn't it? Mr. Miller never injured his opposition standing by making a Democratic tpeecb, that we know of, and we don't think he ever will. He never left the Know Nothing organization until compelled to leave it as rats leave a sinking ship. Personally we have not a word to say against Mr. Miller, but politically we don't know what to make of him. We never could figure him out a Democrat. Another Gone. Judge McLean, one of the Asso ciate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States, died at Cincinnati on the 4th instant, aged about 76 years. He was a native of New Jersey, but had long been a citizen of Ohio. He was appointed to a seat on the Supreme Court Bench by General Jackson. Mr. Lincoln has now two vacancies to fill. The Supreme Court will soon be remoJtlied, us Mr. Seward said it would be. A Slight Mistake. The report going the rounds that St. Clair Morgan, the man who fired the first gun at the Star of the West, is dead, having been killed in a duel at Pensdcola. The mistakes in this statement bpper to be, 1st, that St. Clair Morgan did not fire the first, gun, that gun having been fired by a Cadet of the Citadel Academy, said Cadet hailing from Sumter District, S. C; and 2d, that t. Clair Morgan is not diad. The debt of the City of Philadelphia is over twenty millions ol dollars. I he municipal taxes in N.

It is stated by a cor respondent of the Medical and Surgical Journal, t-iat a cauterization with hot tallow is an immediate cure for in-growing nails. He says : The patient on whom I tried this was a young lady who had been unable to put on a shoe for several months, and decidedly the worst case I had ever seen. The dis ease had been of long standing. The edge of the nail was deeply undermined ; the granulations formed a high ridge partly covered with skin, and pus constantly ooz ing from the root of the nail ; the whole toe was swollen and extremely ttnle and painful. My mode of pro ceeding was this : 1 put a very small piece of tallow in a spoon, and heated it over a lamp uutil it became very hot, dropping two or three drops between the nail and granulation?. The effect was almost magical. Pain and tenderness were at once relieved, and in a few days the granulations were all gone, the diseased parts dry and destitute ot feeling, and the edge of the nail exposed so as to admit of being pared without any inconvenience. The cure was complete, and the trouble never returned. I have tried this plan repeatedly since, with the same satisfactory results. The operation causes little or no pain if the tallow is properly heated. Important from I lie SoutH 1'. S. Troops nt Key W ist. " Montgomery, April 2. W. II. Ward, Esq., editor of the Key of the Gulf, arrived last night from Pensa cola. He states that on the 25th the steamers Daniel Webster and Gen. Rusk arrived at Key West, the former with 400 troops under Col. Cooper, an 1 the lat ter with 200 for Key West, aud 100 for Tortugas. The Crusader reached Key West with sealed orders u .der command of Capt. Craven. The Brooklyn was going into Key West on the 26th, aud there was no doubt (in the mind of Mr. Ward) that she had left her troops at Fort Pickens. The Texas commissioners had stipulated that the General Rusk should land her troops at New York, but the commanders of ihe three companies had signed a document exonerating Capt. Smith, of the Rusk, from all blame for. the deception employed. . Yellow Fever Racing In Rio. New Orleans, April 1. The bark A. Pendergrast arrived at this port to-day, from Rio Janeiro on the 16th of February. The papers report that the yellow fever was raging there. The political news from the United and Ut nfederate States had unsettled everything, and great anxiety was manifested regarding the secession troubles. Death of Lieut. Beriyman.

When it became generally known yesterday morning mt tne companieS now on: duty at Sullivan's Island had been ordered to fill up their ranks without delay, and that the reserves belonging to tne several corps ww , c comrades already on duty by the four o'clock boat, peo- pie began to speculate as to wnai was guiug next. The public curiosity grew more general upon the arrival of two of the officers of Major Anderson s com mand Lieuts. Talbot and Snyder with a flag of truce. They were received by the Governor aud General Beau regard Lieut. Talbot having been appointed by the Government at Washington as Assistant Adjutant nni tUa Ttiatriot nt OrfHon. with orders to re- VJ CIJC 14 IU1 bills lw" .vw ' " w - o , pair to that station at once, desired permission to leave the city to report himself at Washington. Leave was of course readily granted to him, with the understanding that no officer was to be permitted to join the garrison of Fort Sumter to supply his place ; and, accompanied to the depot by Colonel Moses, aid to the Governor, he left Charleston by the two o'clock train ot the N. E. Railroad. Meantime, Lieutenant Snyder had mentioned the facts of the firing into the unknown schooner (as described in our issue of yester day), and informed the Governor that the vessel in ques tion was a Boston schooner, loaded with ice, and bound for Savannah, and that she had put into this harbor on account of stress tf weather. He further said that one of the shots had passed through the schooner's sail. Lieutenant Snyder then returned to the wharf in company with an aid, and went back to the Fort. During his interview with the Governor, the soldiers who mauntd the boat had seized the opportuni ty to lay in some coveted individual supplies of whisky, tobacco, eatables, and a host of other provisions, mak ing in all no less than thirty-five packages. The police, however, had kept a bright eye upon the soldiers, and when the provisioning was complete, they quietly seized all the packaccs and transferred them to the guard house. During the whole of yesterday afternoon all kinds of rumors were rife on the streets. A vague impression had somehow got abroad that the long agony of sus pense and inaction was to be speedily and abruptly end ed ; but how, or wheu, or by whose orders, nobody could tell. We have made diligent iuquiry ; and, (in the absence of official in formation, which, in a juncture like this, is seldom made public,) we deem the following facts to be reasonably certaiu : First. That the suppiits ol provisions and the mails, hitherto furnished regularly to the garrison of Port Sum ter, are to te cut, oh to-day, and that no further commu nication will be allowed between Major Audeison and the Government at Washington. Second. That the troops at all the State fortifications are now finally disposed, equipped and provided for, so as to be ready for action at a moment's warning. Third. That no attack of any kind will be made up on Fort Sumter umil iurther orders, unless such an at tack should be provoked by lajor Anderson, or by an attempt on the part or his government to bring aid to the beleaguered fort ass. Fourth. That these mtasures are taken at the instance of the Government ot the Confederate States, which has lost all confidence in the prolessions of the Lincoln Ad ministration. We have said that this information has no official sanction ; but we have not given it without sifting thor oughly all the conflicting reports prevalent last night, iand we think it can be relied on as affording a fair out line of the new policy to be pursued henceforth with regard to the " saucy seventy." Our CJiifiitis me full From the Chicago Tribune. The great size and the number ol the grain waie- houses in Chicago are the wonder of all visiters. And yt vast as they are two of them affording room for 700,000 bushels there is not room in the city lor an other week's receipts. Vessels and propellers are in request for loading iu order to icceive and make room for what is arriving. As we are receiving from sixty to a hundred thousand bushels daily, it is plaiu that unless navigation opens within two or three weeks cur railway managers will be obliged to stud peremptory o:d rs to the country to stop shipment. Our tables published a week ago show that we have now in the city ut least 4.300,000 bushels of giain. The amount is probably greater by the receipts of last week. Of this we have 1,650 000 bushels of wheat and 1,600, 000 bushels of corn. Taking ihe amount in store, by " ciphering" a. few moments, some very curious results will be reachnl. Ailowii g sixty bushels to the lo.d, nearly double what the iai hilt's team hauls, and it would take 71.666 teams to -"raw it ; and it each team occupy twen'y feet, it would take 365 miles ot road to give them stiinding room. Tnis is exactly the distance between Chicago aud Cairo. And, again, it will require 287 v essels and propelleis to clear out our warehouses if each o.ie take a load of 15,000 bushels. And yet all we have in store is not a tithe of what our farmers will seud for ward during the season, it satisfactory prices are realized. A nival ot tlifc M turner Nuiihvs-)i Light. New York, April 3. The steamer Northern Light has arrived from A?pinwall, which port she kit on the 25th ult., bringing $1,000,000 in treasure. The advices from Central America are unimportant. President Guardiolo has been appointed Captain-General ol Honduras, with full powers to settle the difficul ties between the civil and eeclesiastical authorities. There was adoubtiul rumor in N iearague that a par ty ot filibusters irom New Orleans had arrived on the Uio Grande. Costa Rica was quiet. Coffee had advanced. Advices from New Grana-la indicate that an e'igaga ment wou'd soon commence between the constitutional forces and the revolutionists, on the banks of the Mag daleua. The former numbered 7,000 and the latter 3,000. Advices from Peru state that President Mareno, of Euuador, has been intriguing for the annexation of his country to France. Letiers written by him advocating that measure have been printed in the Lima newspapers ' From Washington. Washington, April 3d. Mr. Corwin, Minister to Mexico, has been tendered the sloop-of-war Cumber land to take him to Yera Cruz. He especially goes to make a treaty with Mexico, which is a speciality with the Administration. It has been ascertain d that the French Consuls in the Confederate States have received instructions direct from France, instead of thiough their Minister here, rel ative to the facilitation of Southern commerce and trade with that Empire. Although no official notification of the coming ot French or English fleets has b.jen receiv ed here, gentlemen in prominent positions are satisfied that those Governments are in close communication wiih observation of Southern political movements. 1 he Cioveiiiiiiiiu Loan, Washington, April 3. The decision of the Secre tary of the Treasury in rejecting all bids for the govern ment loan under 94, has caused great, disappointment among the bidders. They allege that the advertisement gave no such discretion. Had the entire eight millions have been awarded, the average would have been 93). I he Secretary has concluded to issue Treasury Notes for the remaining five miilion. Arguments at Hand. In addition to the prepara tions and detachments in and around this city and har bor of which we have given the fullest reports, consis tent with our duty as citizens we may state that 63, 000 enrolled militia and 10,000 volunteers, armed and equiped and organized, could be 'readily brought into tne field in any point of South Carolina.'- " There are 140 pieces of ordinance of heavy calibre in position, and ready for use, including 60 brass pieces of Field Artillery, and there are materials for arming and furnishing more men even than the numbers above men tioned.' : In addition to State equipments and resources, many patriotic citiz3ns have supplied themselves by private purchases, with approved arms and with ammunition.

Cotton Factories. Perhaps there are not less than from 15 to 20 Cotton Factories in the State, in active operation at this time. If the recent statement that 29.000 bales of coiton are annually manufactured in the State, as published in the papers, be correct, it would seem that a lanrer number than 20 must be in operation.- We are not able at present to locate more than half of that number. There are seven pretty large establishments at woik in and around Fayetteville, one iu Johnson, one in INewbem, and others in itanaoipn aud other parts of the State. If, however, y.UUU Dates a-e annuallv manufactured, it must involve an invest- ment of perhaps 2,000,000 atone, in tnai urancu ui " - x 1 -1 A I 1 . I enterprise. 2. Flora lactones. TuousQ tnis Drancn oi uusiuess has attracted but little notice, at this time it is carried on. and is on the increase, to a greater extent, than any other branch, as to the number of mills in op eration. It employs fewer laborers and invests a small er capital than cotton, it is true, yet it is of no inconsid erable importance to the business of the State. Many of the mills an; very extensive, yet tney are mcapaDie oi meeting the demand at home or abroad. North Caro lina flour within a few years, has risen to the top of the market, and if our planters and millers choose, they can increase its reputation aud quantity. We are not ad vised of the statistics of this article, but suppose that 50,000 barrels, at a valuation of $300,000, are annually t-ent out of the State. This is a mere supposition, it may be greater or much less, but we hardly hazard much in saying that an equal or greater amount of flour is im ported from other StaUs, than we export. We hope the day is not distant, when our millers will wipe this stain from the Old North State. 3. Coach. Factories. This is undoubtedly the largest brai.ch ol mechanical enterprise in the State, employing a larger amount ol hands aud capital than any other. This branch has the ability to supply the entire demand at home, yet owing to some cause, Northern work still competes severely with our coacb-makers. We believe that Mr. McKethan's factory iu Fayetteville, is the largest in the State. His work finds its way into other Southern States. There are others of equal ability, as in this city and other places, to make any kind ot vehi cle to compare with his or the North, but his we be lieve is the lurgest establishment we are aware of. At any rate, there is but little room for an increase of this branch of industry. 4. Wool Factories, There are several factories for carding and perhaps spinning wool, but so far as we know, those at Salem and at Rock Island are the only Factories where cassimeres and other woolen goods are r;iade. These are doing well and are producing the very best goods for men's wear lor daily use. This branch should be increased. 5. Foundries Burns' foundry iu this city, we be lieve, was the first started iu the State, at which a steam engine was made. Now there are several. Oneat Wilmington, ' the Shops,' at Salisbury, Fayetteville, Newbern, and Charlotte. Besides these, there are iron and brass Foundries, for the manufacture of farming utensils, fcc. There should be one at Wentworth, Washington and oilier points. Farming implements are in demand, and the State should supply her own farmers. Foundries for pot ware, edge tools, &c, are still a desideratum. The opening of the Irou mines on Deep River, wilt give an impetus to this branch. C. Paper Factories. There are four paper factories in the State, we believe. Two in Wake county on Neuse River, one in Cumberland on Rockfisb, and one at or uear Sak-m. The first three are operating extensively, and tbt ir paper is always in demand in New York. Hut lor the scarcity of rags, this branch of business might ie extensively followed in this State, 7. Shoe Factories. There are several Shoe Factories located at Thomasville, and one in Chatham. These should be extensively erected. One in R deigb, Fayette ville, V ilmington, Newbern, Washington, Greensboro', Charlotte, Salisbury and other towns each, could not supply the demand. 8. Furniture Factory. We are not aware of a Fur niture iactory, iu which machinery is employed in the State. 9. Wood Ware. The bucket factory of Mr. Make peace, neur Fayetteville, is the ouly one of the kind, which lias been started. Several barrel factories have been established in the upper counties. 10. Tobacco Fac'orics. These are numerous in the upper counties, but mostly on a small scale. 11. A few factories lor pottery, earthenware, pipes, &c, we believe, exist in the upper country, and the spoke and rim factory in this city, embrace about the extent ot our information on this subject. 12. Distilleries for the manufacture of whisky and brandy, are no doubt uunierous. These we regard as wholly evil. The labor and capital employed in them is a consumption a waste, which all the industrial em ployment of our people caunot mend. Were the capi tal employed iu these, appropriated to other and better objects, we might anticipate a better day for the Old North State. Spirit of the Age. There are two foundriea in Wilmington, viz : One owned by Messrs. Hart & Bailej', and the Clarendon Iron Works, now in operation under the control of Mr. Roberts. We be lieve Mr. Roberts has leased this latter foundry for a term of years. Engines of almost any size are manufactured at these foundries. Journal. Im-it-Hse of tb Gulf Squadron. Washington, April 4 The gulf squadron about to be dispatched is to be commanded by Capt. Stringham. The reasons for the increase of the naval force in that quarter are all conjectural. The extreme caution which characterizes the admin istration on this as well as all military subjects occasion many warlike rumors, 't he government seems to have come to a determination, in the language of a Cabinet officer, to be known only by its acts. Extreme solici tude is everywhere manifested relative to the movements concerning Forts Pickens and Sumter, and the fear is expressed that a collision may be precipitated. The steamer Pawnee, lying off the Washington navy yard, will probably leave for parts unknown on Satur day. . Washington, April 4. A naval fleet, which is being fitted out in great haste at New York, is understood to be a supplement to the Gulf Squadron, to counteract the presence of the intended English and French fleets ; though it is asserted here that the Administration may contemplate the blockade of the Southern ports and the mouth of the Mississippi.

O. J. Wood & Co.: Gents : The letter I wrote von in 156 concerning your valuable Hair Restorative, ani which you have published in this vicinity and elsewhere has given rise to numerous enquiries touching the fantg j the case. The enquiries are, first, is it a fact cf my habi tation and name, as stated in the communication; second" is it true of ail therein contained ; third, does my hairroi' tinue to be in good order and of natural color ? Toa'li can and do answer invariably yes. My hair is even better than in any stage of my life for forty years past, more soft, thrifty, and better colored ; the same is true of my whis kers, and the only cause why it is not generally true, is that the Bubstance is washed off by frequent ablution of 'the face, when if care were used by wiping the fare iu close connection with the whisfcers, the same result will follow u the hair. I have been in the receipt of a great number of letters from all parts of New England asking me if my hair still continued to be good ; as there is so much fraud in the manufacture and sale of various compounds as well as this, it has, no doubt been basely imitated and been used, not only without any good effect, but to absolute injury. I have not used any of your Restorative of any account for some months, and yet my hair is as good as ever, and hundreds have examined it with surprise, as I am now (.1 years old and not a gray hair iu my head or on my face ; and to prove this fact, 1 Bend you a lock of my hair taken off the past week. 1 received your favor of two quart bottles last Bum mer, for which I am very grateful. I gave it to my friends and thereby induced them to try it, many were skeptical until after trial, and then purchased and used it with uni versal success. I will ask as a favor, that you send me a test by which I can discover fraud in the Restorative sold by many, I fear, without authority from you. A pure arti cle will insure success, and I believe where good effects do not follow, the failure is caused by the impure article, which curses the inventor of the -good. I deem it my duty, u heretofore, to keep you apprised of the continued efiett on my hair, as I assure all who enquire of me my unshaken opinion of its valuable results. 1 remain, dear sir, yours, A. C. RAYMOND. Aaron's Run, Ky., Nov. 30, J.s.58. Prof. O. J. Woo : Dear Sir : I would certainly be doing you a great injustice not to make known to the world, the wonderful, as well as the unexpected result 1 have expe rienced from using onk bottle of your Hair Restorative. Af ter using every kind of Restorative extant, but without suc cess, and finding ray head nearly destitute of hair, I was fi nally induced to try a bottle of your Restorative. Haw, candor and justice compel me to announce to whoever ru?.j read this, that 1 now possess a new and beautifal growth of hair, which I pronounce richer and handsomer (than the original was. 1 will therefore take occasion to recorxmenJ this invaluable remedy to all who may feel the necessity for it. Respectfclly yours, Rev. S. ALLEN BROCK. P. S. This testimonial of my approbation for your vain able medicine (as you are aware of) is unsolicited ; bot if you think it worthy a place among the rest, insert if joi wish, if not destroy and say nothing. Yours, Ac, Rev. S. A. B. The Restorative is Dut un in bottles of three sizes, vii; large, medium, and small ; the small holds a pint, and re tails for one dollar per bottle ; the medium holds at least twenty per cent, more in proportion than the small, retail! for two dollars per bottle ; the large holds a quart, 40 per cent, more in proportion, and retails for $3 a bottle.
