Tho committee on Fedcml Relations re. jzj
ported a bill to the 7/buse requiring the ai1
Governor to convcnc the Legislature in cc

Notice was given bv Mr. Reed to I"
amend the Charter of the Keowce Turn, ,n
pike Company.
Col. Thomas, who is the Agent of the
Cherokee Indians located in North Ontolina,
is here, and manifests a deep interest an
on tne suoject ot opening the road from J'1'
Pickens C. II. through North Carolina,
and Tennessee io Sevierville and to Knox ('r
ville, Tennessee. Ool. T. informs us that as
charters have been granted bv the Legis- cr
latnre of iVorth (?aro1inn, and a large sum
of money appropriated to the opening
and building the road through that State. ur
There is not more than 8 miles of the a"
road that vrould be turnpiked on our side
of the mountains, which the Ool. thinks 0,1
can he made on a grade of not more rise t'1
than one 4oot in fifteen; for about six thousand
dollars. ^
Tht amendments to the charter are nn
very inconsiderable?it is proposed to ')e
have the books orxMv'd ind ho road to In|
belong to a company instead of an indi- ''
vidual or individuals, so that the people av
of the country will be permitted to take
stock in it if they choose. A? this char- nn
ter may be a private company or may he sl'
vested in a company, nt the discretion of a
few individuals. If the road can he completed
successfully, we shall then have P*
an open road through the mountain country
from Annerson C. II. by Pendleton 1,1
and Pickens C. If. to Knoxville Tcnnes- *'
tee; and by means of this roid, the above ' nv
plaeea W6uld be greatly benefited by the s Pc

Sir James traversed at least 230 miles I
on (he ice, the bergs of which were frightful,
much more so than nnv of tli<? I
^ -
rtenced Arctic voyngers had seen before.
Sir James and his party penetrated as far
as the wreck of the Fury, where ho found
the old tent standing, and everything uhout.
it in a state of the best preservation.
At this poh.t Sir James deposited a large
quantity of provisions, and also the screwlaunch
of the Enterprise. The march of
Sir James across the boundless regions of
ice is truly stated as a most unparalleled
fcPt of exploration. We are sorry to find
however* that it was in no way successful.
According to tlic Hunts Telegraph, the j
first business of Sir II. ftulwer, Envoy to j
the United Stntcs, on liis arrival, is "to j
know wlmt encouragement, if any, the
United States give to the attempted with- ;
drawnl of the <7nnadas f'om Hritish ivile.
It is understood that he has full powers i
to resist energetically all at temps at interference
on the part of the United States
in Nicaragua affairs."
It is said that government has intimated
to the Governor of Canada that no
coercive measures will be adonled to iw.
vent annexation to the United States, if
the popular will be decidedly expressed i
infiivor of that measure.
