MAHHKTN BY TSI.KGUAPII CJive (lie Womeu Work. Charlotte Home. The cry is coming up even here from every part of this once happy land, the paradise of women where plenty once resigned, ive us work, an we must struggle for existence. Agiicultural pursuits engross the greater propor tion of our population, hence there are but few manufactories suited to the feeble strength of women and children. Cut still there are many manufactories of small things that might be estab lished at a Fniall cost, whirh might give employment to thousands. Straw plait ing for exnmple, is a light and easy work; G,00o,00 straw hats were made in Massachusetts in libo, giving em ployment to ten thousand ot her people Rye straw is generally used after be iu' cut, soaked in water and then dried. Itls said that in Philadelphia $0,000, 000 are annually mace in straw goods alone, and $4 to is made per week by the operators. Willows which grow abundantly in the South, might be con verted into baskets by the women and children. For the fiuer kinds of bas kets some instructions witli a set of tools costing about 3, would be neces sary. Canning fruits, making pre serves, jellies, pickles, and syrups for sale, is another branch of industry in which females might be employed to great advantage, not only themselves, but to the pioprietor of sucli an estab lishment. Many such are established north of this, by which large fortunes are annually made, giving employment to thousands of indignent, helpless wo men. In this legion and the South generally, all cur iiuits are wasted af ter what are consumed on the planta tations,exce pts sucli apples as can be kept over durii'g the winter.

Baltimore, Nov. 5 . Flour steady and firm; Southern driving Anils by JIaeliiau'ry From the New Zealand Times. One of the most simple, and at the same time most ingenious, implements ou view at the Exhibition is aa inven tion of a young man in this city, a Mr. F. Falkuur. It is called a "nail gun," and is used for nailing down llooring boards. We have seen the implement in use, and, so far as we are able to judge, it is quicker iu its work, and in sures greater cleanliness than hand nail ing could do. The appearance is not unlike a gun ia shapo and is about the same length. It is kept in position by the foot and knee, and the nail to be placed (point down) in an aperture at the Up of tbe concern. It slides down to the bottom, and then the operator draws up a rod, and by one downward stroke of this the nail is cleanly driven into the board beneath. A practiced hand, by this simple contrivance, could do the woik of ha'f dozen men. We believe that Mr. Falkner is now im proving upon his invention, and is making a "iv.ul gun" which will be self feeding.

C. K. IS. Correspondence of the Biblical Kecardor- This road is intended to bo the shortest line from tho Great West to the Seaboard. When completed we will have a direct line from Cincinnati to Morehead City. This is one of tho grandest enterprises of modem times, and the engineering is not surpassed by any on the globe. The Appalachian chain here reaches its highest elevation. No conception can be formed of the boldness of the design to pierce this mighty pile with the iron horse. It was found that the Western slope was 1,200 feet above the Eastern base, while on the top it is 2,300 feet above the sea. So it was found impossible to get on the Western side by tunnelling the mountain unless a higher elevation could be reached. This has at last been dune. By gradual approaches, at au average grade of 110 feet to the mile, at a distance of 10 miles including curvatures .nd zigzags, crossing and recrossing deep chasms and gorges along Mdl creek, on the sum mit, it reaches the desired elevation at the big Tuuuell. Thosa who would like to enjoy the pleasures of an Iu dian Summer, when the varigated hues of the disappearing foliage enhance th j magic of the scenery, would never regret aa excursion now to the road. and April 5 13-32; new crop shipped Arriving at the entrance of the tunnel. November aLd December sail 5 11-32. we met with the Governor and otbers ou a tour of inspection. We joined them, and being seated on a Hat or dirt car, with umbrellas and lamps we all proceeded to explore this subterra nean vault. Streams of water come pouring from the rocky ceilings above us, and on all sides, sulphurous smells greeted our olfactories, reminding us of Virgil's description of his hero's visit to the realms of Pluto. Far in the interior the convicts were at woik. The bellows and the fortre were the tawny sons of Vulcan. The strokes of the heavy sledge, the sparks and the Hashes of light from the iron brands created lcelings cf dread aud borrow iu the minds of tho visitors. A Sunday Fire iu Wilmington. Sun. At 3:15 p. m. Sunday fire was discov ered in the Review office. Eight min utes after tho alarm was sounded, the Little Giant company appeared ou the scene, followed almost immediately by the Cape Fear engine and the Hook and Ladder company. The Little Giant had the first steam, and in a short time there was nothing left of the lire plied by out smo&e. The fire originated in the store of J. W. Alderman fc Co., but its origin is not known. This firm estimates its loss at f 1,500. which was covered by an insurance of $1,000 in the Fire Associa tion of Philadelphia and 500 in the Springfield, of Spiingfield, Mass. Mr. John II. Strauss, who keeps a grocery in the same building, had his stock damaged to the amount of $200. His loss is fully covered by an insurance of $1,500 in the Hartford, aud $1,500 in the Queen of Liverpool. Messrs. Atkinson & Manning represent all tbe companies above named. Up stairs our friends of tho Review were smoked, scorched and finally well drenched. Their loss in the lilcs of the Journal and the Review, is probably irreparable, but the r melted job type etc., can be replaced. They, also, have a good insurance.
