WILMINGTON, N. O :
FRIDAY, FEBBTJARY 26. 1875.
- Little Keber Denmark, son of Mr.
S. H. Denmark, of Goldsboro, who
was so badly injured in that town on
the 13th inst., by falling under the
wheels of a coach while in motion, is
now, we are pleased to learn, some
what better, and hopes are entertained
of his ultimate recovery. A full ac
count of the accident was published,
at tke time, in the local columns of the
Xbe Western Division.
The Charlotte Observer says that
the work on the Carolina Central Kail
way, between Buffalo and Shelby, is
progressing favorably. The grading
is about finished. The timbers for
the bridge over Buffalo Creek are pre
pared, or nearly so, and are at a point
somewhere on "the Eastern Division,
ready to be carried up. It is hoped
that by the last of May trains will be
runniDg through from Wilmington to'
The Spartanburg (S. C.) Spartan
says: "We notice the completion of
the Carolina Central Raiay betweei
Wilmington and Charlotte, N. C,
forming an entire new connection be
tween the sea coast and the up coun
try, and promising a still further re
duction in rates of transportation of
freight. The new road, in connection
with the Atlanta & Richmond Air Line,
has already made a reduction of nearly
25 per cent, on a car load of salt be
tween Wilmington and Spartanburg,
and from this we presume that the
reduction will be extended to allclasse
Xbe tireat South.
As a matter of some interest to our
readers we copy from that portion of
Mr. King's book, relating to our city.
It will be remembered that this vol
ume is the republication, in book
form, of Mr. King's papers ou "The
Great South," published same little
while since in Seribncr' Magazine.
Mr. King says:
The range cf climate covored by the
State may be taught by the statement
that buckwheat can be grown on the
mountains in Ashe county, and oran
ges flourish in the soft sweet air of
There is a tropical luxuriance of
flowers and trees in Wilmington
which is almost astonishing, for one
sees all plants possible at Charleston
or Savannah flourishing in the gardens
of this more Northern town.
Wilmington lies on the banks of the
Cape Fear river, and on the hills
which extend backward from those
banks. It ia bnt twenty-eight miles
from the mouth of the river, and
was one of the havens most sought
after by blockade runners during our
civil war. At the mouth of the
river stand Forts Fisher and Caswell,
the former one of the strongest forts
on the Atlantic caast, as it proved
itself in the terrible days of 18G5, when
Porter and Terry knocked at its doors
and finally burst them open. Wil
mington has important railway con
nections, notably the Wilmington,
Charlotte & Rutherford (Carolina Cen
tral) Road, which will give the port
direct communication with Tennessee,
Kentucky, Ohio and Illinois, and will
immensely increase her trade. All
the counties through which the road,
when completed, will pass, are rich in
mineral and agricultural resources.
The other routes, leading to Charles
ton and Richmond, also command a
The Cape Fear river, at Wilming
ton, is a wide and noble stream, and
the scene along its banks in the bril
liant snnshine of the autumn morning
when I saw it, was inspiring. Cheer
ful gangs of negroes were rowing huge
scows from side to side of the stream,
standing upright and steering by
means of long poles or sweeps; one
mierht have fancied them a species of
African gondoliers. Sweedish ship3
were loading with naval stores ; huge
piles of lumber, and heaps and long
rows of barrels of turpentine, and
pitch and rosin, were ranged on the
wharves. There were great num
bers of negroes who looked idle,
although many were employed;
some were fishing, others sleeping in
corners; one or two groups seemed
discussing politics, and in the centre
of a crowd of jet black men I heard
the following question and answer
isolated fragments of a deep religious
"Wha's de reason dar's so maray de
; greea (sects) o' Baptists now, when ar
"wan't on'y one John the Baptis',
"Lor, nigger, we ain't 'sponsible fur
dot; dat aint got nuffin to do wid god
liness!" Front street is a fine avenue, lined
with many elegant blocks devoted to
business. Market street is a broad
central promenade, ciowded with the
omnipresent negroes, who chatter and
"discuss" all day long. The blacks seem
to think that labor is incompatible
with the enjoyment of city life.
In that portion of the town devoted
to the residences, churches, and pub
lic buildings, perfect tranquility pre
vails. Nowhere is there hum" of
wheels, clatter of teams, or braying of
whistles. On Third and Fifth streets
there are many elegant mansions, and
, gardens, filled with rarest tropical and
"costly plants. The City and Thalian
Halls, the Jail, and one or two of the
churches are quite imposing, but the
city is not rich in architecture. The
cemeteries are pretty sylvan retreats,
and the sleepy, moss grown suburb of
"Hilton" is a favorite resort for ex
cursions. Commercially, Wilmington has every
reason to hope for great develop
ments. The principal articles of ex
port are spirits of turpentine, in bar
rels, crude turpentine, rosin, tar,
pitch, cotton, peanuts, and lumber in
The foreign trade is mainly with
Liverpool, Queenstown, Antwerp,
Belfast. London. Card Anna Ttnttarrlam
Havana, Bristol, Hamburg, Cape Hay

to Philadelphia, Baltimore and New
York, have an aggregate tonnage of
4U,uuu tons roontmv. Jn 1S72. 22
000,000 feet of lumber were shipped
irom mis port.
After the war the exports of spirits
of tnrpentine and rosin were encour
aging until 1870; since then their
development has not been so great,
but the constant growth of the cot
ton trade makes amends for their fail
ure. The fine regions extending along
the road to Weldon, and on both sides
of the Wilmington.Columbia & Augusta
railroad, as well as on the new Ruth
erford route, are very rich in
turpentine and timber. The sections
traversed by the two Cape Fears and
the South and Black rivers are,
perhaps, richer in turpentine stores
than any other in the world. A new

coast, and terminatingin Wilmington,

There is still some bitterness among
those of the aristocrats, who were
ruined fey the war, but it is rapidly
mellowing into a regret which has but
little of unkindly feeling toward the
North mingled in it.
' A determination on their part to
make Wilmington all that it has op
portunities to be, would soon increase
its population from 14,000 to many
times that number.

Sen Arii Thurman suid the question

denly remarked: "Oh! by the wav,
Mrs. Maxn, I almost forgot to give

impressed upon me not to forget it

was handed Mrs. JL, and excusing
herself, slse retired to the lightar pur

Mrs. Mason's eyes opened and she
thought a moment. Then (die went
to a wardrobe, plunged her hand into
the pocket of her silk dress, pulled
out a pretly Russia purse, and front
its snugly tucked up corner took a
bill. It looked nice and fresh and had
iu big figures upou it, "100." doing
to the door she inquired of the waiting
gentlemen, "Will you take the money
to him ?" The kind looking fellow
who handed her the note professing
not to know what wsrs in it, spoke up,
"Oh, certainly, x-ertainly, I'll see that

Said Mrs. Maxon, "I have only a
