The IVewberu Agricultural Fair Appeal
Co Che Adjoruciis; Coiialic.
The erec;on of buildings and other improve
ments are going forward rapid ty on our Fair
Grourds. A beautiful track for tlie exercise of
blooded stock has Pilready been constructed. The
Grounds themselves taken in connection with the
surrounding scenery are not excelled by any in
the Uni od Siates. The ground on which the
whole is locvref5 is peifectly level, while the en
c'losuie is bounded on one side by the Railroad
a id on the other by the majestic Neuse, as hand
so .ne a sheet of water as eye could wish to rest on.
We do trust that we 6hall have some aquatic
sports connected with the Fair. It is a beautiful
place for it, and then it would add much to the
other alt racl ions,
We liave already made appeal after appeal to
our Newbern and Craven friends in behalf of our
Fair, and now we desire to say a few words to the
people of the adjoining counties.
It never was intended o.' desired that this should
be considered exclusively p. Craven county en
terprise. We want Carteret, Jones, Hyde, Beau
fort, Lenoir, "Wayne, Green, Onslow, and all other
counties that are near enough, to co-operate with
tTYri i t trri Tr " t f a ITffiion Fair: and desire I.-,
itrtheylfas well iiFueTrwshonld be beneht-
ed, and fbey will be benefitted if they wi'l take
lold crtlie vOik and assist us in giving it that
success which the enterprise deserves. We trust
that the people of all the. adjoining counties will
rot only come up 'o the Fair, but we want them
to bring something for Exhibition. Don't mat
ter what it is bring the best you have got or can
produce, whether agricultural product, specimen
of mech anical skill, or mineral. Bring something.
All the friends of the Fair will bear in mind
that there is to be another meeting at the Court
House to morrow night, and it is desi ed that
Caere be a large attendance.

Below we give, a letter from the State Geolo
gist, Prof. Emmons, descriptive ot a portion of
Western North Carolina:
SOUTH-WESTERN COUNTIES OF N C.
LtV.tr from Prof. Emmons to the Editors of the
Franklin N.' C. Observer.
Sirs It seems to the writer, that the question
relative to the Mineral and Asricnltural resources
of the south-western counties is, what are the pro
babilities of the future in these respects, and not
what they are now ; for in a country where the
inducements for development and improvement
are limited, it cannot be expected that remarkaDie
and inviting prospects can be shown immediately
upon the surface. But the mining and agricul
tural interests are slowly developed, and it is only
upon and by encouragements which markets and
Erofits-hold out that men are induced to act; and
ence, when market facilities are provided, an en
tire change in the feelings of a community take
oHee wliici result in entemrize which either
! bring: to lijrlii mineral resources, or lead to a sys-
; tema'tiTJ anOja proniable hrisoaiidry.
Ilf lit 80
uy n-western counties, agriculture nas
to contend with the disadvantages of distant mar
kets, where intercourse is diaicult and expensive :
and hence, the inducements to labor enesgetically
for large crops are too small to move a community,
though individual exe; tions in a few instances are
met with which have resulted in proving ihe capa
city of the soil for the production of great crops.
When all things are taken into consideration,
which affect the capacity of the soil, climate, com
position and depth, few sections can compare with
the south-western counties of North Carolina. It
is true it is studded with mountains, but they
are clothed with a great depth of soil, and bear
the finest and most valuable forests of hard and
soft woods or timbers 'n the world. Noihing sur
prises the traveller more than the extreme depth
of the soil and the massive timber tree which it
supports, from the valley to the summit othe
Balsam and Nantahala mountains.
But the writer does not propose to speak par
ticularly of the agricultural interests now, neither
indeed upon the mineral interests, except in a few
Earticulars. Of the mineral interests, they may
e divided into two branches of industry. 1st,
the interest connected with the production of
metals. 2d, that connected with and existing in
the rocks proper. Of the western counties which
are destined to furnish metallic material, Jackson
county is rich in Copper, while Macon and Chero
kee will produce the most iron. The Savannah
copper-mines of the Cowee mountain, those of the
Collowhee and Way-ye-hut-te are sufficiently
developed to enable the miner to base a safe
opinion and entertain the expectation they are
destined to become profitable mines, provided a
way to market is opened.
Ihe ha?matitic iron ores of the Nantahala, are
certainly inexhaustible beds, whose character
for goodness are not exceeded by the best ores of
Salisbury, Ci., which has long been celebrated for
its iron.
Of the rocks of these counties we may feel as
sured of the existence of fine marble, suitable for
statuary and oilier purposes for which marble are
employed. The most important variety is the
clear, flesh colored marfde of Nantahala, which is
really unique tor the delicacy ot its tints.
Ihe same region turnislies also, hne roonng
slates of a blue color. Plates of slate may be ob
tained, five and six feet in length and two feet
wide It splits with ease and with a perfect plan?

the finest "Porcelain clay. The foregoing, em
brace some of the important mineral products
which are inexhaustible, but which, under ex
isting circumstances are nearly useless; but
which will become of immense value when a
cheap and commodious way is opened to the
markets of the world.

filling it with goods at an early date. There ara
some deeps cuts to be made just above this place

had his spinal mprrow taken out, scraped, soaked

FITDAY MOFN'NG, SEPTEMBER 16, 1359.
The New.
There is an effort, supported by the Herald, on
foot in New York to abolish, virtually, the Sab-
both and all its wholesome ordinances. A pub
lic meeting has been called for some locality in
the Bowery. We are glad to see that it is
principally foreigners who are engaged in it. We
hope the day will never come when American
born citizens will cease to " Remember the Sab
both day, to keep it holy."
Meantime there is a movement on foot in Phila
delphia led by the clergy to stop the running of
city cars and to suppress other secular employ
ments on the Sabboth, as far as possible. The
move is a commendable one.
Over ten thousand muskets besides other im

Mrs. Cunningham of Burdell and bogus baby
notoriety has turned up again. She ocoupies a
respectable looking brick house "up town," next
door to the elegant residence of Mr. Bryant,
ediur of the New York Post. A Sunday paper
says :
" The town residence of Mr. Bryant is East 16th
st., near Second avenue, and in the house adjoin
ing, towards Third avenue, Mrs. Cunningham has
taken up her abode. The four-story brown stone
front, with massive steps and impressive bow
windows is Mr. Bryant's house; exteriorally.and
the interior arrangements it havinsr been built
to his own order are doubtless in beautiful har
mony with his cultivated and exquisite tastes.
A plain two-story brick house is that occupied by
xurs. uunningnam, one ot tne three similar con
tiguous houses, built several years ago, which
have not yet given way to the up-town encroach
ment of palatial residences. But proximity to
such a neighbor, as may be supposed, was not al
together relished by Mr. Bryant, as soon as the
fact became known to him. He has used every
decent means in his power to procure her eject
ment by the landlord but without success. Mrs.
Cunningham pays her rent regularly. The land-
tutu as is um case wnn an lauaioras has a high
appreciation of rent paying tenants. The com
plaints of the sorrowing Mr. Bryant have proved
impotent alongside of Mrs. Cunningham's rent
paying punctually. Mrs. Cunningham still re
mains. Mr. Bryant still complains. It is likely
that Mrs. Cunningham will continue her sojourn
in 16th street. It is not unlikely that. Mr. Bryant
will continue to pour his compliants upon the
pitiless ears of the obdurate landlord.
What cannot be cured must be endured. Mrs.
Cunningham is in her new abode, and Mr. Bryant
is in for it. A lively imagination, the endow
ment of the poetical, is Mr. Bryant's. With such
an imagination, it can hardly be supposed that
the author of Thanatopsis can
lie down to pleasant dreams,'
at the thought that a brick wall only a few inches
thick intervenes between him and the alleged
principal in the Bond street tragedy. Disturbed,
restless, and fraught wtth anxiety aftid snner

experiences as an editor may have long since
rendered him callous to human fear. It is to be
hoped such is the case."
The Washington Constitution of Saturday con
tains a five column review of Senator Douglas'
late Magazine manifesto. We will notice it at
some length in a day or two.
The new York Tribune is full 01 laudations of
the Republican candidates for State officers just
nominated at Syracuse.
A proposition to invite tlje Great Eastern to vis
it the port of Norfolk, and to extend to her offi
cers the hospitalhy of the city was recently made
before the Council Board of that city, and voted
down.
, There was a great military display in Baltimore
on Monday last, it being the anniversary of the
battle of North Point. The day was spent in
parade, speeches, feasting, &c. Besides the mil
itary belonging to the city some companies were
present from other cities. All went off well.
A contention has been going on recently be
tween what are called the upper and lower routes
that is the Wilmington & Weldon and Man

Progress."
Off the Track.
The A-sheville News which paper says it has
not the pleasure of an exchange with the Progress,
though we sent the Progress to the News for sev
eral months when we first started without getting
the News in exchange, in copying from the Wil
mington Journal some lemarks of ours not on'y
does us injustice but misrepresents us. The fol
lowing remarks made by us some time ago are co
pied into the News :
'The old liners those who have been bred in
the democratic party are not willing to see those
who hare stood by the colors throuarh ffood and
evil repprt sacrificed or thrust aside for renegade
whigs ur ex-know nothings. In plain English, a
large pftion of the democracy, outside of the last
Legislature, never have been able to see why
such men as Gov. Reid and W. W. Holden, who
have stood by the party for twenty years, and
who dtijSt'tS ir 0 other two men to erive
ituf V.should b set; aside f
gmarrrri
long a!$;he opposition could give him a place, and
who only came to the democratic party to bargain
for place. But March, 1861, will see his star go
ici nuu :a ii"iiii.si. lue party as
.Upon this the News comments at some length,
closing as follows :
" Mr. Holden has always been regarded in this
section as friendly to the promotion of Mr. Cline-
iijriu. ami. iiuiuru auimj, ms services 10 me
party are certainly acknowledged and appreciated
in this section of the State, and we entertain a
better opinion of him and Gov. Reid than to sup
pose, as the Progress insinuates, that they and
their friends failed to support the Democratic can
didates in the recent election, because neither of
them Ijad been promoted to the position now oc
cupied by Mr. Clingman.. Is it true, as asserted
by the Progress, that the " old liners " of the Dem
ocraticarty refused to vote with the party in the
recent election because of Mr. Clingman's elec
tion to the Senate ? Is that the cause of Dr. Shaw's
defeat in the 1st District? Was it the cause of
Mr. Scales' defeat in the 6th District? Did this
feeling produce the result in Mr. Gilmer's Dis
trict and increase his majority more than a thou
sand votes. Any one who will look at the vote
in these Districts who has sense enoueh to un
derstand the points in a political campaign will
see at once tnatthe ciiarge 01 the Progress against
Mr. Holden and Gov. Reid and their friends, that
they deserted the Democratic party in the late
election because ot Mr. Clingman s promotion to
the Senate, is a silly calumny. '
In the beginning the editor of the News says :
" We are not positively certain what may be the
politics of the Progress." We will enlighten you,
Mr. News. The editor of the Progress is upwards
of 30 years of age and never voted against a regu
lar democratic nominee in his life for any office ;
he never voted for a know nothing or a man who
had been one, if he knew it, and never will. He
has always opposed and always will oppose any
man of any party who deserts the principles to
which he has adhered and which he has advoca
ted for years to join the dominant party that he
may get office. Can you present as good a politi-
cai.recor" . i
-TI the rtinMfw;
cTranrcl f m,,,.i. and their friends
with failing to support the democratic candidates
in the recent election on account of the promotion
of Mr. Clingman is a calumny we prefer a mild
er language but it is a mistake, an incorrect
statement. We know that Messrs. Reid and
Holden have always been true to party organiza
tion ;. but we did say, and say again, that the
democratic people have never been able to realize
why it was that new converts renegades if you
please should be elevated over veterans in the
cause, and if this course of promoting new con
verts to the faith, (whose motives in coming over
somehow the people will question,) and ex-know
nothings, in preference to those who have borne
their part in the heated conflict for many long
years, be persisted in, the decayed energies and
wasted ability which will be presented by the
democratic party in North Carolina in a few years
will bring not only the editor of the News to his
senses, hut will cause many other leaders of the
party to kee and regret the folly of the course they
have puipued.
As to the complexion of the Progress, Mr. News,
it is not a political paper, if yon deem it nepessa
ry to be solely in the service of any one political
organization to be considered such, and we sup
pose you do. It claims to be independent in all
things and neutral in nothing, and claims the
privilege, and will ever exercise it, to say what
ever it pleases about politicians in office or aspi
rants for office. We hope this will enlighten you
as to tlie individual position of the editor, and
also astoihe character, politically, of the Progress,
which in future, would be pleased to exchange
with you.

"We believe that Salisbury at this time is mak

the State. An immense quantity of goods are
cold in Salisbury every year, and manufacturing
establishments are going up in almost every direc

permanently increasing. We extract from the
Banner of that place, of Tuesday last :
Our streets represents a busy buzaar. "Every
variety of country produce, in almost endl-ss
quantities, and brought in every form of moving
vehicles crowding upon one anotherr is selling
at good prices ;iand nearly all of our enterprising
merchants are already displaying the first ariv-
als of their Fall stocks, perfect avalanches of
which are daily arrriving at our depot. Xext
week's Banner -will show what is now being done
by our Salisbury business men, some of whom
have aUady returned, and all of whom will pro
bably bf back in a week or two. You ean just
see the Leads of Mr. Young and the McNeelys'
above their bales end boxes ; J. H. Enniis splen
didly repaired rooms are just receiving the finish
ing touches ; and the most elegant piecd of car-
Eet we have seen is displayed in the window of
(rown. Coffin and Mock. But wait ujntil next
week, when we shall 6peak cf others, abd try to
mention all. ; ;

In compliance with an appeal on the part of iht
editor of the Standard to his " democratic cotlnx
poraries," we insert on our first page, an art:k
from that paper referring to the Democratic Pre st
and the Warrenton News. In doing1 this we rt
not incited by any personal hostility, to eithef oS
the Editors named. With Mr. Whitaker we pre
in pleasect social relations ; and though not Ac
quainted with Mr. Walsh, we have no cause! ol
complaint against him in this regard. ?
We hope that these editors, now at variance,
on matters which appear to have originated in
private considerations, will come to some under
standing in relation to their public duties to the
democratic party and the Soutu. No beneht can
arise from continuous hostility to any one ; and

that he is " rich" and " purse proud." We behtve
the former is true, but the latter we have not been
able to perceive, in an intercourse through whfch
we could not have failed to discern the fault, fit
existed. But to our view, his deportment is quat
the reverse. j " i
In regard to his being rich, it makes the fact
appear, " that the hand of the diligent makfetb
rich." Industry and a liberal economy h4v
made him what he is in this respect, and we hope
the same result will follow the exertions of tne
others of our editorial brethren, involved in (he
present difficulty. -
The above from the venerable editor of the
Goldsboro' Tribune bat expresses our own senti
ments. We have known Mr, Holden intimately
for fifteen years, and we could never discover ttsX
he was " purse proud " or that he looked dotennn
other mechanics. On the other hand we kne
that he is universally popular with the mechanics
and working men of the city of Raleigh, and .tie
deserves to be. The most friendly relations have -
lope will continue to exist Be
tween the editor of the " Press " and ourself, ajpd !
the same good feeling has ever existed between
the editor of the News and ourself until his recent
uncalled for personal attack upon us. Healoni$
responsible for that. We defend Mr. Holden not as
a politician, (though we confess we have desired
his elevation,) but as a man, knowing him to p?s
sess those amiable qualities arid elevating senti

REVOLUTION IN COSTA RICA.
New York, Sept. 14. The steamship N
Star from Aspinwall has arrived. The revolution
in Costa Rica continued. President Mora nd
Generals Mora and Canas had been banished from
the country, and have arrived here. Doctor Mon
traligres is the Provisional President.
The revolution was bloodless. Mora was seiz
ed by the soldiers of the garrison in his dwelling,
without any premonition, and hurried on boerd
the steamer Guatemala, at Punta Arenas, and he
revolution was over before the people were awkre
of its existence. He was compelled to write to the
commanders of troops at other places counselling
non-resistance, but the commander-in-chief fdo
clared he would attempt to restore Mora. Nica
ragua had promised to assist, and it was thought
that Guatemala would do so likewise. Sir "Vym
Goie Ousley had offered Mora the protections o:
the English flag. fi

ard says the Concord " Clique " are bold in theii
assertion that they will oppose any candidate
nominated at Charleston for the Presidency tuni
less it be Douglas or Franklin Pierce It is aic
that Mr. Pierce is quite confident that he or Don i

New York City, Sept. 13th, 1850. ,
Dear Progress : Bright and beautiful isf th
day in New York after the rain of yesterday. Ey
erything presents a charming aspect. ; j
The Accademy of Music opened for the seasoi
last night. The opera was Polinto; the artist
were fcCortisi, Brignoli and Arnodio. The hpni
was packed full such a display of elegant opef.

appeared quite as well satisfied as usual. You? ar ;
aware that he possess any quantity of self on
ceit. ArnoJio has not lost any flesh nor his voice '
the latter is very fortunate for him.
The Kavels are drawing crowded houses nijghi
ly with the elegant pantomime Asphodel. Gahric l
though nearly sixty years old has not degeqert
ted any in his acting. Madam Zanfietta date'
perfectly on the tight rope there is much grac
and agility about her movements. Mr. Chlritt
performed at Jones' Ward on the tight rope afev'
days ago, and his feats were astinishing Blodii

crowded, the music and promenadingis very fail
No one could possibly pass an hour more agrcosr
