As to there being parties in Newbern who ''.em-
barrass shipments through Carolina, Ci ty,? otir. imr
pression is thaff whoever created suiJB lupression,
if it actually exists, is guilty of iie'ti6il'd'
wilful falsehood. True, ourjusinesimen7 are
jenergetic and active, buthe business smen of
Newbern are not so dead to a sense of pg;Kfand
moral obligation as to resort to anxfBlegitimate
means to build up their own town af Jthe.expense
fe of their neighbors. Let us be satisfied that there.
? are parties in Newbern, or parties in anywayl con-5,
nected with the road, from the Governor,who has
tlie appointing of , two-thirds of the Directors
down to the humblest brakeman, whQ.;.hino!e?
shipments from Carolina City, or any mother -; point
on the road, and; we will denounce them?
But the Watchman should hardly expect' that
the agent of two or three . little! packets? should
. govern the whole management of a'raproad nearly -...
a hundred miles? long. One thing we. do know
freight trains.have been sent to Carolina City to
remove-freight'at the request pf these, ;4 agents,"
and when they would arr? there there. was no
" frftio-ht -with which to loft;he'ftrfi'T "t

But our only object in these -renWks was to
dejay that parties in Newbern were embarjrin

G' We take the following particulars relative to
the operations of a " shape and talents " character
that has been recently operating in Augusta, Ga.,
from the Dispatch of that city. Hertainly
played his cards weft" but then, we suppose he
had had experience in foreign countries:
" A Gentkei. Swindler. -Our quiet city has
lately been the theatre of a series of somewhat
novel and certainly quite singular financial opera
tions ; comparing, in frsmall way, withHhe magnifi
cent swindles of the larger cities. A man named
Marchymade his appearance here last spring as
a teacherpf the French, Italian and Latin lan
guages,' and succeeded in forcing himself upon
-the acquaintance of many of our best citizens.
Of some he borrowed, and to others he loaned
hi on ey, and often had considerable sums at his
'credit in bank, and seemed quite willing to be
observed as a man that handled a liberal amount
of the "root of evil." He. was a regular attendant
at the drawings of Swan & Co's Lotteries, and
pretended to be a confidential agent for a 4 large
company " of our first citizens who would not
buy tickets themselves, but confided their money
to him. He has been seen with lanre bundles of
tickets, and talked fifeely about having drawn
prizes. '
: Two weeks ajro he advertised that he would
be connected for the fall term with several of our
schools, as Teacher of French, -&c, and also form
classes at his rooms. Soon after, he told his friends
that his physicians advised him to take his fami
ly to S one Mountain a tew days for their health,
and he solicited several persons to go to the Liv-
ery;.tarie ana use nis horse during: his absence.
A' number, to whom a ride of' an afternoon is a
luxury, not to be treated with contempt, went to
tne staoie ana were surprised to learn that he
had left special orders not to let anybody use his
horse and buprgy until he returned ! Davs nass
ed, and the little French gentleman was not heard
rrom. -ine scnoois opened, and he still did not
return This excited remark, and durincr the last
weak a number of disclosures have come to Jio-lit.
indicating that Prof. Marchy is an impostor one
grand humbug. Parties in the city assert that
they saw in his possession notes payable to the
order of three or four wealthy citizens and endorsed
by them, ambuntiug to several thousand dollars
and which these parties, so far as we have learn
ed pronounce, forgeries.
yv e have not learned whether he negotiated
any ot me notes, but he lett a number ot bills
unpaidjincluding a small account withsthis of-

ports that the Spanish cabinet are determined to
act ehetge tically against Mexico iA ,
In the early part of October, four ships of var,
belonging to the squadron of Gallicia, will depart
