The next Uonse of Representatives.
The next House of Representatives will consist
of 237 members. Of these eighty-6vc have been
elected. Fifty-two of these are black Republicans
and thirty-three Democrats. The States yet to elect
are as follows : Alabama, Connecticut, California,
Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana,
Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mis
sissippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Caro
lina, New York, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas,
Virginia and Wisconsin. In the present House these
States are represented by eighty-eight Democrats,
fifty-two black Republicans, and twelve Southern
Know Nothings. If, therefore, in the elections yet
to take place the black Republicans shall make a
clear gain of fourteen members, they will have a
majority of the vejt House of Representatives. If,
however, in the elections to be held the Democrats
should hold their own, they will have the House by
Will they do it ? We confess we have our fears.
Democracy is losing in the free States by the fideli
ty with which it maintains the Constitutional rights
of the South, and the anti-slavery cause is gaining.
The Richmond Enquirer.
The Richmond Enquirer has been considerably
enlarged, and appears in a new dress from "top to
toe." The Enquirer is now looking remarkably
well, and gives evidence in its columns of great, con
tinuous and well-sustained labor. We do not agree
with the Editors in tome of their recent views; but
this will not prevent us from bearing cheerful testi
mony to the ability with which the paper is conduc
ted, nor from wishing the establishment the most
abundant pecuniary success.
The Enquirer establishment is doubtless the larg
est and best arranged in the Southern States. There
is a Bindery connected with the establishment, and
also a lithographic department, the only one, by the
way, in the South. The number of presses employ
ed is six, to wit, a large newspaper cylinder press;
a large book press, manufactured by Adams ; a large
hand prees for posters, and three hand presses for
jobs. The presses are driven by an engine of four
teen horse power. The Editors conclude their des
cription of their new establishment as follows :
"Our readers will be enabled to form a correct es
timate of the extent of our operations, when they
are informed that the number of hands kept con
stantly imployed in our several departments amounts
to eighty-six, exclusive of collectors. We have
among this number, representatives of divers nation
alities and creeds. We have Americans, English,
Irish, Scotch, French, Germans, Italians Episcopa
lians, Presbyterians, Methodists, Baptists, Catholics,
Universalists, Campbellites, &c, &c. Who will
doubt that we have a fair diversity in nationalities
and creeds? And strange, the relations of this ap
parently heterogenous assembly are of the most
pleasing and agreeable character. They pull togeth
er like noble fellows.
The number of gas-lights in our establishment is
one hundred and thirty, all of which will be in full
blaze during the winter months. The effect of these
reflected through the series of windows in our es
tablishment, must needs be imposing. We may
well say that they will impart considerable vitality
to that part of the city. The whole establishment
is likewise heated by steam from the boiler, con
veyed in pipes through the various departments."
Hon. A. Y. Brown.
One of the correspondents of the Columbus (Miss.)
Democrat, referring to the Presidency, and taking
it for granted that Mr. Buchanan will not be a can
didate for re-election, expresses a preference for
Hon. A. V. Brown, of Tennessee, the present able
and popular Postmaster General. The correspon

mentioning the name of A. V. Brown, of Tennessee.
He is singularly eligible at this crisis, since he has
ever avoided that most dangerous of all issues.
secession, trusting the Union, and the rights of
nis section, with an abiding laith, to the National
Democracy. The pupil, the friend, and the compa
triot of Andrew Jackson, be inherited from that old
hero an ardent devotion to principle, and an ardent
hatred of all trickery. He is, in short,' an honest
man, and one who cannot look without anger upon
even the suspicion of fraud. As Postmaster Gener
al, he has had rare opportunities for the display of
inese qualities; and the worth has learned to trust
biro, as well as the Soutb. Should the Charleston
Convention be harrassed by intrigues that I wot of ;
should it become disgusted by the pertinacity of
some already discontented claimants; should it be
wrapped too tightly in the web of intricate Ques
tions, arising from the conflicting interests of States
ana men, it is not at all improbable that a majority
of its members would be wHling to unite upon the
middle ground, afforded them by Tennessee, the

Raleigh and Guaton Railroad.
The stockholders of this Road held their Annual
meeting in this City on Thursday )ast. - Unusual
interest was manifested in the affairs of the Company,
and a large number, of (stockholders from the Cities
of Petersburg and Norfolk and from the Counties of
Warren, Granville, Franklin and Wake were, in at
tendance. On motion of Judge Ruffin, of Alamance, the Hon.
Weldon -N. Edwards, of Warren, was called to the
Chair, and Maj. W. W. Vass, of Wake, and Col. L.
C. Edwards, of Granville, were appointed Secre
taries. Judge Rnffin appeared in the meeting as the State's
In the early part of the. day a discussion took
place upon that portion of the President's Report
relating to the prices of freights, in which Messrs. A.
W. Vcnable, G. W. Mordecai, J. Davis, and others
took pa'rt Mr. Mordecai, who is one of the Direc
tors, replied to Mr. Venable, explaining the rules by
which the Board has been governed in this respect,
and the practical operation of the tariff of freights.
No action was taken on this subject by the stock
holders, but the whole matter was left to the Board
Directors, to be examined and attended to as they
may ueem oest.
The following resolutions, introduced by Mr. R.
H. Kingsbury, of Granville, were on motion of Mr.
Rives, of Petersburg, indefinitely postponed, by a
vote of 4,538 to 270 :
Resolved, That the purchase of supplies or mate'
rials for the Raleigh & Gaston Railroad, either di
rectly or indirectly, from anj' member of the Board
of Directors, officer, or agent of said company, is
wrong, and so far as the action of the stockholders
of said company at this meeting can control the
same, is strictly forbidden.
Resolved, That no Director or other omcer of the
Raleigh & Gaston Railroad company, shall become
an undertaker, or make any contract for his own
benefit, for work or labor to be performed for or on
account of said Road, or be in any manner concern
ed or interested in making such contract, or in the
profits thereof, either privately or openly, singly or
lointiy with another,
Resolved, lnat no person or persons snail oe al
lowed to ride free over the Raleigh & Gaston Rail
road, except the Directors of said Road, unless he or
thev shall be on the business of said Road. That no
commutation tickets shall be issued to any person
or persons, nor any discrimination made in regard
to persons travelling over said Road : and that all
Ticket Agents tnd Captains of trains shall attend to
the strict enforcement of this resolution.
Resolved, That it shall be the duty of the Treas
urer of the Raleigh & Gaston Railroad, to furnish a
printed list to each stockholder of said company,
thirty days prior to any election of Directors, which
list shall exhibit the number of shares held by each
individual, firm or corporation interested in said com
nany. The amounts paid to the several officers and
directors for services rendered, and all other salaries
and expenses, are to be specifically set forth. The
printing of said list to be charged to the Company
Resolved, That it shall be the duty of the Com
mittee of Finance of the Raleigh and Gaston Rail
road, to examine not merely the books of said Com
pany, but all the vouchers for all disbursements
made for the same. This may involve more labor
than a simple comparison of footings, but it is the
only way in which an examination can be of any
The meeting then proceeded to the election of
four Directors. On the first ballot George W. Mor
decai and Charles L. Hinton, Esquires, of Wake,
were elected; on the second ballot- there was no
choice ; on the third ballot Dr. E. A. Crudup, of
Franklin, was elected; and on the fourth ballot Col.
S. S. Royster, of Granville, was elected.
The old Board consisted of Messrs. G. W. Morde
cai, Charles L. Hinton, and W. J. Hawkins, the lat
ter the President of the Road. Thomas Miller, Esq.,
the other member, died some months since, and the
vacancy thus occasioned had not been filled.
The Directors on the part of the Slate for the past
year were Messrs. G. H. Wilder, of Wake, and A
C. Perry and John G. King, of Franklin.
After the election of Directors, Mr. Rive, of Pet
ersburg, offered a resolution directing the President
of the Company to apply to the Legislature to so
amend the charter of the Company as to authorize
the stockholders to elect the President After some
remarks by Mr. Rives, Mr. A. W. Venable, Mr.
Mordecai, and Judge Ruffin, the resolution was re
On motion, a Committee was appointed to inform
the Governor that the stockholders had elected their
Directors and awaited the announcement by the
Board of Internal Improvements of the State's Di
rectors. The Committee reported that the Governor
would announce the State's Directors this (Friday)
Whereupon on motion, at about seven o'clock, P.
M., the meeting adjourned sine die.
The Reports of the President and of the Com
mittee of Finance represent the Road to be in good
condition and more prosperous than at any former
period. We will lay these documents before our
readers in our next.
Hon. J. Glanct Jones. This tried friend of the
Constitutional rights of the South, who was recent
ly defeated for Congress in Pennsylvania by the For
ney ites, Douglasites, and black Republicans, has
been appointed by the President Minister to Austria.
This is a high compliment worthily bestowed. Those
whom the black Republicans defeat the President
honors. The Union thus notices the appointment :
" Hon. J. Glancy Jones. It affords us great plea
sure to announce that the appointment of Hon. J.
Glancy Jones, of Pennsylvania, as minister to Aus
tria, which was voluntarily tendered to him by the
President, has been accepted by that gentleman.
The faithfulness and ability of his whole course in
Congress as a national democrat have been recognis
ed and endorsed by the country. As chairman of
the Committee of Ways and Means in the House of
Representatives the most important position in
that body be was eminently successful. His per
suasive manners and bis admitted knowledge of fi
nancial questions extended his influence among the
members of all parties, who placed fall reliance on
his statements. Should the tariff question be before
Congress at the next session, his lore will be severely
felt. But his appointment to Austria was eminently '
fit to be made, and we are glad that he has accepted
it" . ' : : -:'.:
The Vice President's Illinois Lelter. Vice'
President Breckinridge, it is stated, has written a
letter to the Illinois State Central Committee, in
which he says that while he does not endorse the
course of Senator Douglas in the late session of
Congress on the Kansas question, he regards that
question as settled, and that in the present contest
in Illinois he sympathises with Senator Douglas, and
wishes him success. The report that the Vice Presi
dent would address the people of Illinois is pro-v
nounced incorrect , .
National Agricultural Exhibition at Richmond.
The inaugural ceremony of the sixth exhibition of
the United States and Virginia Central Agricultural
Society took place formelly on Tuesday last on the
Richmond Fair Grounds, amid a large concourse of
citizens. Gen. T. Tilghman, of Maryland, was
introduced by James Lyons, Esq., of Richmond, and
proceeded to deliver an eloquent and impressive in
augural address. Gov. Wise. Ex-President Tvler.
Caleb Cushing, and many other distinguished per
sons were present.
The Enquirer gives full accounts of the Fair, and
seems to be pleased with the display which is made,
but the South pronounces it a "Hat, lamentable and
unmitigated failure." The exhibition of stock and
-machinery, says that paper, " is inferior to any pre
viously made in that City. Melancholly looking
people wander about the desolate grounds, with
faces which indicate any thing but approbation."
The South objects to the charge of fifty cents as an
admittance fee, and to the tax of ten per cent
levied upon competitors for prizes, and adds
" The National Fair has attempted to supercede
the Virginia .State Society, and the result will be
the utter disconfiture of the former. The old 8tory
of the brass kettle and the earthen jar has an apt
illustration in the contest, and we cannot regret that
the present enterprise has proved abortive.
The great end of agricultural associations in Vir
ginia should be to foster, develop, and enlarge her
own farming interests. When these great objects
are set aside for the purpose of sordid gain and cor
porate aggrandizement, we rejoice at the failure.
We have no sympathy with speculations such as
this seems ; we have no desire to see a new system
inaugurated in our good old Commonwealth; we
desire and in this we feel assured that we give ut-
terance to the general sentiment we desire to see
all. unnecessary restrictions removed from such ex
hibitions, and emphatically protest against the new
and monstrous system of taxation introduced by the
National Fair. This duty of ten per cent levied up
on competitors for prizes, degenerates the manly
competition to which the Virginia farmer is accus
tomed, into the miserable excitement of a raffle, and
affionts the exhibitor with an unjust impost
The whole affair is foreign to our tastes ; it is un
congenial to our habits of thought as a people;
utterly at war with all our preconcieved views and
opinions The management of the affair is alien to
the soil of Virginia. The National Fair is an exotic
which bears fruit distastful to our people, and the
consequence is already seen in the blight which has
fallen upon it."
Virginia Democratic State Convention.
The Central Committee of the Democratic party
of Virginia have designated Petersburg as the place
and the second of December as the time for holdiug
the btate Convention to nominate a candidate for
Governor. The South says, " We had suggested a
different arrangement, but accept the decision of
the Committee with perfect satisfaction. The De
mocracy of the Cockade city dtserve the com pi i
ment; nor will they neglect any provision for the
hospitable entertainment of their associates from
other quarters of the State. "The place is easily ac
cessible from every point, and abounds in comfortable
accommodations. The party will cheerfully ratify
the action of the Committee."
For the Standard.
The time is drawing nigh for the usual convention
of stockholders of the Railroad companies of the
State, and as the past year has not been very favor
able for receipts, the likelihood is that there will
not be money enough in hand for a usual dividend
What will be done ? This, I fear, is as easily an
swered as the question what ought to be done ?
Every prudent and honest man knows what ought
to be done. He knows that the debts and liabilities
of the companies ought to be promptly and honest
ly met, that the roads and running apparatus ought
lobe kept in good and safe order; and as all of
them are in debt, they ought not only to keep down
the interest upon their funded debt, but of such as
is due, pty off as mnch as possible, and augment
the sinking fund for payment Of such as is payable
Every company that borrows money to pay divi
dends, or for that purpose, withholds the payment
of just debts, diminishes its ability to discharge its
deferred debt and grossly violates its charter.
Nothing but the profits can be lawfully divided.
If a company may borrow money to declare six per
cent., it may, with equal justice, borrow money to
declare twelve, twenty-five, fifty or one hundred per
cent A honest man can see no difference in the
principle; and all that is thus raised diminishes the
ability of the company to discharge previously ex
isting debts. Thus, suppose a company of $100,000
capital, of half par value to owe $50,000 borrowed
money, and $6,000 are borrowed to make dividends;
it is plain that the loan of $50,000 is become less
secure. In plain words there is a subtraction by
the stockholders for their own use of $6 in each
$100 subscribed as stock. Such an operation is
merely dividing out the stocJr, and dwarfing against
the terms of the charter the artificial being created
by the legislature with a full and complete stature.
If it were necessary that the corporation should
have the strength of its entire stock in order to ren
der it a fit instrument to effect the purposes design
ed, then such a subtraction is not only unwarranta
ble, but is a fraud on the public, if it be true that a
charter is a contract between the public and the
To illustrate this more forcibly and give a practi
cal turn to the matter, suppose the company does
not borrow the money to make dividends, but issues
a promissory note to each stockholder to the amount
in the aggregate of $6,000, and suppose the notes
are not redeemed before the next meeting, then a
new set of promissory notes is issued for the new
dividend, and the first notes having got into other
hands, the company is sued thereupon and ultimate
ly funds the debt. If, at the next 'convention, the
company should not be able to meet its debts,
(among which the notes issued for dividends will be
reckoned,) then there must be a sudden stoppage of
dividends and an exposure of the poverty of the
company, and down goes the stock. To avoid this
stijl to make false dividends by borrowing again, the
device is left This time the money lender will de
mand security, and a.mottgage is given on the road;
thus the first debts of the company due to strangers,
and created on the faith of the corparate property
are postponed to the last debt, a debt really created
to enrich the stockholder, and, is in truth, a mete
subtraction pro tanto by the stockholder of the cap
ital which he at first paid in.
There is another device sometimes resorted to to
give a fallacious value to the stock which is equally
culpable, and destitute of good faith to the creditor
and the sovereign, and that is to issue promissory
notes for the dividends- payable at a distant day,
say at three, tour or ten years even.
Now it is palpable that in a short time these little
notes payable at so distant a day will greatly depre
ciate and fall into the hands of a money dealer, who
will take special care to bring the company to a
reckoning the moment they become due; The
stockholders have no more right to raise money in
this way than they have to procure from the com
pany a note to each one for the whole amount of
his stock and sell them in market to a note shaver.
It may be said that this mode of issuing promis
sory notes or scrip in payment of dividends is
scarcely sufferable. I would myself have thought
so, but I have lately had the most irrefutable evi
dence that it has been resorted to at one time by
one company at least ' - :
I have seen such a scrip which was issued by the
Petersburg ' Railroad Company, and I give you a
copy below. I have no evidence to what extent the
pract ce has run I hope it has ceased. This in
stance is given as a warning against the pernicious

If this be a lawful mode of declaring dividends,
what would prevent a corporation, heavily burthen
ed with debt, from declaring a dividend of the full
value of the road and its property, issuing scrip
therefor, and mortgaging the entire property of
the company to secure its payment? A ready mode
of indemnifying the unfortunate, but patriotic stock
holders of an insolvent company this would be, in
deed, by handing over to the stranger creditors the
marrowless skeleton of the corporation after the mem
bers bad sucked out all the fat themselves.
A LARGE STOCKHOLDER.
Hon. Jesse G. Shepherd. We are glad to learn
that our esteemed fellow-citizen, whose name heads
this article, has consented to let bis name come be
fore the next Legislature for Judge of the Superior
Courts of North-Carolina. Judge Shepherd is now
riding the first judicial circuit under the appoint
ment of the Governor a'nd his council. It was at
first doubtful whether he would consent to hold the
appointment longer than the meeting of the Legisla
ture. But we learn that he has consented to let his
friends in the Legislature show their approval of Gov.
Bragg's appointment by bis election to till the vacan
cy occasioned by the resignation of Judge Person.
J ude Shepherd has always been a hard student,
he is an able lawyer, and will reflect credit on the
bench. His associates at the bar in the counties
where he practised will regret to part with him. i
Courteous and respectful to all with whom he came .
in contact, he enjoys the confidence and respect of
all parties. He wul carry with him to the bench
the best wishes of all who know him. Of his elec
