- '"-CoY.MoTehead rose and said we had an opportu
nity to elect a President of this Convention who
" would do honor to the State ; and proceeded to pass
a high eulogium upon Calvin Graves, of Caswell,
who had given the casting vote by which this char
ter had been passed ; and concluded by moving- that
he be unanimously appointed President of the North
Carolina Railroad Convention. The proposition was
received with applause.
And the question being put by the Chairman, the
moti6n was unanimously adopted.
Whereupon, the Hon. Calvin Graves was con
ducted to the Chair by Gov. Morehead, and tender
ed his thanks for this mark of the regard and confi
dence of the Convention. The occasion which had
called us together was one of great magnitude. The
eyes of the people of the State were turned upon us,
with the most cheering anticipations that from the
deliberations of this body, this great entereprise might
be strengthened and matured. He trusted their antici
pations would be realized. When we turn our eyes
to other States and see what they have done, the in-
3 airy was naturally presented, how can there be any
ifficulty about the construction of this Road 1 He
referred to the statistics of England upon the subject.
There they had expended two hundred millions of
pounds sterling in Railroads ; and the great difficulty
with which they had to contend was in obtaining the
right of way, which frequently cost from $60,000 to
$70,000 per mile. All this in a country not so large
as some of our States ! When we cast our eyes
abroad upon our own country to Massachusetts,
New York, Pennsylvania and other States North ;
to booth Carolina and Georgia on the South, and
everywhere to the great West, and see the great
works of improvement proposed and accomplished
should it longer be said that Worth Carolina was un
ed to present. He came forward to enlist under the
banker of the gentleman who addressed us this morn

speech' of Gen. S4 though shorty was Strong and elo
quent, and received with great Applause. J.- He. Con
eluded by presenting the following resolution
Resolved, That 's committee of eleven be appointed
by the President, whose duty it shall be to inquire
and submit the most eligible plan for increasing the
sobscription'neeessary for raising the one million of
dollars as prescribed by the charter ; provided it should
appear that a sufficient sum has not already been sub-'
scribed for that purpose.
Hamilton C. Jones, Esq. betnsr called for, address

speech in which he asserted the ability of the peo
ple of North Carolina to accomplish this great work;

ultimate success. The people represented by him
and his colleagues were -deeply interested in this
Road thev looked upon it as their only hope and
should it fail, thousands of them must leave the coun
try. ' . , .
Gen. Edney and Mr. Dibble made a few remarks,
after vNiich Mr. Davis being loudly called for, ad
dressed the Convention upon the benefits which had
resulted from the building of one Railroad in North
Carolina. He alluded to the much-abused and un
fortunate W. & R. Railroad. Mr. D. then proceeded
to contrast the former state of Wilmington with its
present erowth and nrosneritv rivin? trlowinsr ac-

counts of the favorable prospects before the town of
Wilmington. Mr. D. also went into an examination
of the amount and prices paid by that town alone to
New York for articles, abundance of which can be
produced and furnished by the Western section of
North Carolina, provided this Road was finished.
Mr. Clark, of Rowan, then responded to a call in a
few remarks upon the Railroad theme; and addressed
some arguments to the Convention, but was inter
rupted by Mr. H. C. Jones, who moved an adjourn
ment. The President then announced the following Com

called upon any gentleman present who was in pos

Convention, to do so.
W. W. Averv. Lsa. then addressed the Conven
tion, presenting the following communication from S.
Moylan Fox, Esq. the Engineer on the Buncombe
Turnpike Road :
MOROANTON, NOV. 17th, 19-19.
I. T. Avert, Chairman, &c. Dear Sir : Your
communication of this inst., informing me of a res
olution adopted at a Railroad meeting in this place,
requesting my attendance as a delegate from Burke
county, to the Railroad Conventional Greensborough,
&c, has been received. 1 regret that my profession
al engagements compel me to decline the honor in
tended to be conferred upon me. I feel a great in
terest in the completion of whatl consider the engine
of reformation to the whole State a Central Rail
road from Raleigh to Tennessee, connecting our com
mercial towns with the whole of the interior.
The developments of my surveys for the Western
Turnpike has fully established the practicability of
extending the XMorth Carolina Railroad west from
Salisbury to the Tennessee line, and that at a com
paratively low cost. The only doubtful point upon
the whole line was the passage of the Blue Ridge,
which is the dividing ground between the Eastern
and Western waters. This Ridge at the Swananoa
Gap is 2640 feet above tide water ; while the valley
of the Catawba on the one side at Old Fort is 1340
feet above tide, leaving but 1300 feet of elevation on
the Eastern side, which can be overcome at a grade
of 800 feet to the mile in 13 miles, provided the sum
mit be reduced 260 feet by a tunnel. A tunnel 5000
feet will do this, saving 33 miles of road. This
summit is only as high as that overcome bv the Penn
sylvania Railroad, and lower than that of Virginia or
My estimate of the cost of the Road from Salisbury
to the Tennessee line is in round numbers two mill
ions or dollars. This includes all the work and
equipment of the road with engines, depots, &c., and
l believe it to be a very ample estimate of the cost.
j he valley 8 ot the trench Broad and Swananoa
on the Western side of the mountain rise with a slope
of about 20 feet on the mile to within five miles of
the Blue Ridge summit a distance ot 55 miles.
On the Eastern side the Catawba extends from the
foot of the slope necessary to grade upon the moun
tain to a point near the Island Ford, a distance of 66
miles. There is no portion of the country that 1
have been in: that offers cheaper position for a railwav
than these 121 miles of valley. For miles together
the grading will not cost over 400 dollars ner mile.
These streams have most of the way broad bottom
tanas ana are remarkably direct.
1 consider the work of manifest importance to the
whole estate, and to all the commercial towns of the
States of Virginia and Sooth Carolina. By this
route Norfolk is reached in 513 miles; Wilmington
in 49z mnes; nanesion in ol3 miles, and Kich
mond in 465 miles. All these distances except the
last, are many miles nearer than any other route eith
er proposed or constructed. While the route to Rich
mond is but fifty miles longer than the proposed
route mrougn Virginia, ana the cost of the route wil
scarcely exceed one half- a point of great moment.

the obllcration proposed above by Mr, Gilmer : and
at this point fifty-one gentlemen had signed it

surveys and estimates to be made, and the Road to
be put under contract on the entire route, and that
the superstructure should be commenced at its point
of connexion with the Wilmington Road,' and also
at its western terminus.

tors, in letting out tho contracts for work and mate
rials, shall in all eases give a preference to such
stock-holders as may- propose or desire to become
( I -
3. Resolved further. That it is. highly "important
and necessary that the whole of the unsubscribed
capital of one "million should be subscribed before
the adjournment of this Convention, and that a sub
scription be forthwith opened for that purpose.
The question being upon the 1st and 2d Resolu
tions, ., . , .
Gov. Morehead submitted ' his views against the
latter part of. the 1st Resolution which provided for
the commencement of the Road at.the point of con
nection with the Wilmington ' Road, and also at its
western terminus., ,. :i -
Mr. George Davis explained that the object of the
Wilmington delegation was that the iron might be
brought to Wilmington, and carried on their Rail
road with facility and cheapness ; and the passage
of this part of the - Resolution, would materially aid
the obtaining subscriptions to the stock in that por
tion of the State. .
Gov. Swain then addressed the Convention, pro
posing a modification of the Resolution that we go
the whole Road or none, if that would meet the
views of the Wilmington delegation. '
Gen. Saunders read the Resolution again, to show
that the first part of the Resolution affirmed that the
whole Road should be built. He was opposed in
Committee to the .last, part of the Resolution, and
was unwilling to trammel the President'and Direc
tors by any conditions. He submitted to the Wil
mington delegation to withdraw the latter clause,
with the assurance that he would vote for any sepa
rate resolution declaring that the whole Road should
be built, if any of it, and leave the whole matter to
the sound discretion of the President and Directors.
Gen. S. had the authority of the Wilmington dele
gation to withdraw it, so that the grading of the
whole Road should commence on the entire route
from Goldsborough to Charlotte, and proceed pari
Ur, Hill also stated the reasons of the Wilming
ton delegation ; made a most effective appeal in favor
of the work ; and conoluded by declaring that he
would be one of a hundred to take all the stock un
subscribed ; one of fifty ; or one of ten.
Gen. Saunders then read the 1st Resolution as
proposed to be amended by agreemont, as follows :
Resolved, That as soon as the Company shall be
duly organized, it shall be both expedient and pro
per that the President and Directors shall cause the
6 roper surveys and estimates to be made and the
:oad to be put under contract on the entire route,
commencing at the Wilmington and Raleigh Rail
road, where the same passes over Neuse River, in
the County of Wayne, via Raleigh, and thence by
the most practicable route via Salisbury, in the Coun
ty of Rowan, to the town of Charlotte, in the County
of Mecklenburg.
The amendment having met with entire approba
tion, was adopted nem. con.
And the 1st and 2d Resolutions were then unani
mously adopted.
Gen. Saunders then took the floor, and addressed
the Convention fully, upon itsactoin so far, and upon
the subject of the Road generally. After some re
marks highly patriotic and lofty in their bearing,
conciliatory towards all differences of views, and
tending to unite all interests in the great work be
fore us, he proceeded to deliver an appeal of the
most earnest and eloquent character. It was the
great speech of the Convention ; and we regret that
tne hurry ot going to press forbids even the feeble
attempt to do it justice. ,
Having concluded, tbe question was taken upon
the 3d Resolution, which was unanimously adopted.
J. A. Gilmer, Esq. then submitted the following
agreement to be entered into, by way of securing
hthe stock in the Road, viz :
Whereas, only a part of the One Million of indi
vidual subscriptions to the North Carolina Rail Road
Company required is taken :
Whereas, the purpose of this agreement is to take
and secure the balance of the One Million of said
individual stock, not already subscribed, and to be
subscribed by others:
We, the undersigned interchangeably agree with
each other and said Company, to take each the one
hundredth part of the said balance of the said indi
vidual stock :
This agreement to be binding on none, unles one
hundred persons or companies subscribe .the same
or the entire amount be made up :
Each person or company to be at liberty to sub
scribe as many shares of the hundred as he or they
may please, and bound for no more than his or their
subscriptions. Nov. 29, 1849.

the legislature will be decidedly democratic, both in
the Senate and the Assembly, and the democratic
State ticket is elected by from 4,000 to 8,000 ma
jority. This majority, for a new State, is overwhelmingly
large, and it shows that the youngest child of the
north-west is determined not to be least in her sup
port of the pure principles of Jeffersonian democracy.
Michigan. The majority for Barry, the democrat
ic candidate for Governor of Michigan, is about 4,300.
The Senate consists of 16 democrats, and 6 whigs
and free-soilers ; the House of 42 democrats and 24

matter of this sort ; and now that he has pointed out
the way, and the man, we hope our young friend,
Mr. Heartt of ths Reoordei, and Mr. Lorinyof the
Commercial, will not be slow to follow.
The Herald says of Col. Joyner, with equal beam
and comprehensiveness, "he is the architect of his
own fortunes and his own greatness. Born a pooiboy
in Connoconary Swamp, in this County, hehasae.
quired by his industry, energy and perseverance, a
large estate and an enviable name." Such a recora-
mendation as that ought to " take the keys." And
besides, while the Last and the West have been duly
honored, and while the centre even has not been
always thrust aside crumbless ami unprovided for,
Uonoconary Swamp, by some strange obliviousness
on the part of Whigism, has thus far been totally
neglected. But a brighter day, we are gratified to
perceive, is dawning for Conoconary; indeed, ever
since Mr. Simmons began to edit the Herald, things
have looked better in that direction.
But. seriously, the Editor of the Herald, early as
he is, and sincerely devoted as he may be to his wor
thy and venerable friend, is yet too late in the day.
Col. Andrew Joyner, of the County of Halifax, will
never be Governor of North Carolina.

15th, and Liverpool to the 16th of last month. .
Mr. Rives, the American Minister, had been re

From Hungary we learn that Haynau, the butcher,
was continuing his infernal work. Kossuth, who
was still at Widdin, had published an address to his
countrymen, in which he denounces in the bniure.it
terms the traitor Georgey.
The Emperor of R ussia, it is stated, hadsofarpre
vailed in his demands for Kossuth and the other ref
ugees, as to exact from the Sultan a promise to con
fine them to his dominions, or permit only such of
them to depart as the Czar might designate. Under
this arrangement it was feared that Kossuth might
either be consigned to a Turkish dungeon, or fall into
the hands of Russia. The next arrival will probably
bring more definite intelligence in regard to this in
teresting matter.
The Pope, it is stated, meditates an early return to
