We learn from the Chronicle that a meeting of the citizens of Milton and vicinity was held on the 1st instant, for the purpose of ' making some effort to prevail on the stockholders of the Richmond and Danville Rail Road so to locate it as to run by Mil ton." John Wilson, Esq. presided, and Mr. Evans acted as Secretar'. The meeting was addressed by X. J. Palmer, Esq., who offered Resolutions to the effect that the interests of the Richmond and Dan ville Road would be greatly advanced it that Road should he run by Milton ; and also expressing the opinion that a " Charter can be obtained for a Rail RiaJ" from Milton to some point on the North Carolina Rail Road thus connecting, at Milton, the Central with the Danville Road. The meeting also expressed the opinion that the proposed connection wiulJ promote the interests of both Roads. I: was stated in the meeting, by Messrs. Watkins awl Darrett, that the amount of freight to and from Milton alone, by the Dan River, is at this time at Vast $30,000 ; and the opinion was expressed that much cf this would be diverted from the river, in caso the Rail Road 6hould touch Milton on its way to Danville. Messrs. Watkins, A. J. Walker, Smith, Barrett, Lewis, and Wilson were appointed a Committee to (upmorhlixe the stockholders of the Richmond and ' Danville Road Company on the suhjeet ; and Messrs. ' J.4,n Korr, Nathaniel J. Palmer, N. M. Roan, Calvin I Gmes, George Williamson, C. H. Richmond, John E. Barrett, and John Wilson were appointed Dele r.iW.6 to the annual meeting of said Company in (iichmond on the 12th instant. CHARGE DE AFFAIRES TO AUSTRIA. The appointment of James Watson Webb as Charge to Austria, is one of the worst acts of thi9 very lame anJ weak Administration. Webb is a man of no-I'-rioiisIy doubtful character, and this post has been '-'fiferred upon him as a reward for his partizan ser ices, and nothing else. It seems he has already irawM his outfit, and sailed for Vienna. He was de termined to have that much out of the Public Treas ury, at any rate, whether the Senate confirmed his w.!niralion or not. The Whig party North appears to !)c disgusted not only with this appointment, but Col. Webb's hot haste in "cutting out" for Kurope. It intiy be that the necessity for a Minister at the Austrian Court is pressing, but the Northern papers generally do not favor this opinion. Indeed, the sen'iment oi the country is believed to be in favor of euspend'ing, f not entirely discontinuing, all inter course with that power, degraded and debased as it has become by its treatment of the gallant Hungari ans. Austria murders a noble people struggling for Merry, and not content with that, ties up and whips innocent and unprotected women ; and on the back of mat the Government of the United States manifests unusual anxiety to haye a Minister at the Court of ueb a power! What will the millions in Europe, gating for freedom, think of that! LiTtsT from California. The Crescent City has arrived at New York bringing dates from San Fran- 1 cio to the 2nd of last month.

" i The people of Vermont, it is stated, have elected I '2rje majority of Democrats to the Convention to worm their Constitution. The same thing occurred Kentucky, as decided a Whig State as Vermont K Why are Democrats always elected to reform institutions or to revise fundamental laws?

We agree entirely with " Messenger, but we thought Gen. Taylor was a "a&mf Washington' Eh T - copieg of Bishop Ives's Pastoral Letter, and also jfan Examination" of the same by a Lay Mem may be had at Mr. Turner's Book-Store in this A new Post-office has been established in David County, in this Stale, by the name of Martin, JoJn Rothrock, P. M. ; also, one in Johnson County, BeptcDBville, L. Peacock, P. M- To tlie Citizens of If orth Carolina. vThe undersigned have been appointed a Committee by the Convention held in tha- town of Greensbo nmgh, on the 29th ultimo, to address the reople of the State and, to urge" most earnestly your co-opera-tion,tn order to secure the Charter granted by the o pneral Assembly to the "North Carolina Rail Road Company." We shall.'ss we think, most use fully discharge this duty by isimply explaining the action or the C6nvention, the -present condition of t8'?, what -is particularly necessary to organ ize the Company, and to carry out the views and re commendations of the Convention for the accomplish mt of this great State improvement. The act granting the Charter requires a subscrip tion on the part of individuals of one million of dol lars, and the payment of the first instalment of five dollars per' share, when the Company shall be re garded as formed, and the Stockholders authorized to proceed to the election of a Board of twelve Direc tors who are to elect a President and have the gen eral management of the affairs of the Company. The Charter further provides that' whenever the President shall cause it to be certified, under the seal of the said Company, that, one million of dol lars have been subscribed and five hundred thous and dollars of stock actually paid in, then there is to be subscribed, in behalf of the State, two mil lion of dollars to the capital stock of said Compa ny. At the recent meeting of the Convention it was ascertained that upwards of two hundred thous and dollars of the stock had been taken; where upon, in order to secure the amount necessary to make up the one million, it was resolved by the Convention, "That the President and Directors, in letting out contracts for work and materials, shall in all cases give a preference to such stock holders as may propose or desire to become con tractors." After the adoption of this resolve it was proposed that a company of one hundred persons should take whatever might remain unsubscribed of the one million of stock, and thus secure the Charter to a certainty. And we are happy to in form you that fifty-one names have already been subscribed, requiring only forty-nine more gentle men, of equal spirit, to put the matter beyond all doubt. Since the adjournment of the Convention, as we learn, some twenty or thirty thousand dol lars have been taken in Alamance County and other places ; and it now remains to be seen if the forty-nine gentlemen, with the aid of the positive subscriptions, cannot be found in the State, to make up and subscribe the remainder of the one million of stock. We flatter ourselves the question has only to be stated to be answered affirmatively. To effect this object, and to give all the information possible on the subject, Rail Road Conventions are to be held in the respective Counties through' which the Road is expected to pass, which will be attended by sever al intelligent gentlemen, and to which all are invited who may take an interest in the matter. And as this may be considered as the last great effort for the im provement of the internal condition of the State, we confidently appeal to one and all, who claim to be North Carolinians, and who feel any concern for the elevation of her character and the promotion of her prosperity, to come to our aid in the accomplishment of this great undertaking. As we honestly believe, those who may subscribe, and who may consent to become one of the Company of one hundred for taking the unsubscribed stock, can run no possible risk of loss, or be put to the least inconvenience, beyond the payment of the five dol lars on the share, and the lending of their credit to the -concern. We say this, a3 we doubt not the Board of Directors will in good faith carry out the resolve of the Convention, in giving to the Stockhold ers the contracts, or of allowing those who may not desire it, to transfer their stock to such as may wish to become contractors. This plan has been adopted by other Companies, and has been found to operate most advantageously. In conclusion, we tell you the spirit of improve ment, by means of Rail Roads, is abroad amongst our sister States ; and that the utility of the system is not only established, by the experience of the pru dent and practical, but its necessity is rendered abso lutely indispensible to all who desire or expect to participate in the advantages of an early and certain market. Wo appeal, then, with gTeat confidence, to your interests as well as to your patriotism, to exert yourselves in behalf of a measure which promises so much for the State, by slopping the tide of emigra tion, now carrying off"so rapidly out most intelli gent and enterprising citizens, and which shall vin dicate the wisdom of the Legislature in its support of a judicious system of Internal lmprovements, and cause every native son to feel a pride in claiming to be a North Carolinian.

We see an editorial in the ArorA Carolina Standard of Wednes day last, on the subject of a Pastoral Letter from Bishop Ives and a reply by a lay member. Without making any allusion to the points in controversy, we notice this matter a3 part of the current news of the day. We think Mr. Holden takes a right view of the subject. No good can arise from these "examina tions " of the Pastoral Letters from the Bishop, and it is somewhat unfair to assail them, because he can not reply to them, without the performance of labor that has no limit the number of the attacks being liable to any imaginable increase. In this free country all matters are open for discus sion but what may be lawful is not always expedi ent. The Bishop is answerable to the regularly con stituted authority of his Chureh, for any deviation from doctrine or misinterpretation of the Scripture. Controversy, however successfully managed on his part, would impair his usefulness and consume the time that should be devoted to his official duties. We need not speak of the character and qualifica tions of this most estimable man, both as a preacher and a citizen. In these points none have ever had the temerity to assail him. As to other matters, as he cannot repel assaults, we think they are very un fair; very ungenerous. We learn from the Standard- what has very much surprised us, vi : That Gov. Manly was voted a gainst in some places on the ground that he was an Episcopalian ora Catholic, and that Gen. Patterson was beaten for the Senate in his own county on the same ground. This is shameful, and ought to be " re formed altogether." . Christian zeal is commendable, but it should be tempered with a righteous j udgment." We are sure that no one improves in religious knowledge or grace, by entertaining bad feelings towards other denomina tions. Those who are censorious towards others, are very apt to be neglectful of self-examination a thing very essential to peace of mind and equanimity of temper. But when this spirit extends to the ballot box, it is monstrous and strikes at the basis of that system of civil and religious liberty, which we so highly prize, and of which we boast so much. Wilmington Commercial. The Double Eagles. The Philadelphia Ledger was informed by the directoi of the mint, on Satur day, that the dies for the double eagle, or twenty dol lar gold piece, authorised by the last Congress were in a state of forwardness, and would probably be rea dy for coining next week. The Philadelphia Times says it is rumored that Dr. Durbin intends to leave the Methodist Church, and join the New School Presbyterians. 1 J -lv Con-esponaenee of the Wasbn Republic. "' , . -Boston, -December 3, 1849. Murder, or (Dr.:PABkman. The afflicting topic of my last two. letters continues to occupy public at tention here to the exclusion of almost every other subject of present moment. Further developments do not relieve Professor Webster from the mesh of suspicious circumstances in which the unhappy man is involved. Let roe briefly state the authentic facts that have appeared up to this afternoon. Professor Webster states that on Friday, Nov. 23d, Dr. Parkman called at the Medical College, and was paid by him (Webster) $183 64, which amount was to take up two notes and cancel a mortgage. On the morning of that same day; Prof. Webster had called at Dr. Parkmau's house, and, the Doctor being out, had left word for him that he would pay him if he would call at his room at the College soon after one o'clock, p. m. Since half-past one on that day, when Dr. Parkman was seen by a number of people to enter the College, no reliable information of him has been obtained. All reports of his being seen here and there turn out fallacious. He was seen to go into the College but was not seen to come out. On Thusday last (Nov. 27th) the Medical College was searched, and the search included the apartments of Professor Webster. : Nothing to implicate him was found. Suspicions continued to increase, how ever ; and the people in the neighborhood of the Col lege clung to the idea that the College was respon sible. Anxious to satisfy the public distrust, Dr. Henry J. Bigelow, Professor of Surgery at Harvard University, renewed the search. A vault under the laboratory of Professor Webster was broken into, and a portion of a human body drawn forth. The fact was deemed sufficient to authorize the arrest of the Professor, and he was accordingly arrested at his house in Cambridge on Friday evening, Nov. 30th. " In order to avoid alarming his family, the officers simply told him that he was wanted at the College to aid in the search. It was net till the carriage drove up to the jail, and he was told that ho was ar rested, that he betrayed emotion. Then his anguish was intense and indescribable. He was soWafter visited by Parker, -who addressed hhn kindly, ad vised him to say nothing while laboring under his ap palling state of excitement, and' expressed the pain which his own duty now entailed upon him. At about II o'clock he was taken by the officers to the College. He was so weak that he had to be borne bodily to the carriage. Being confronted with the mutilated remains that had been discovered and brought from his laboratory, he seemed struck with frenzy, but said nothing. Water being offered him, the sight seemed to throw him into convulsions, as if he were laboring under a paroxysm of hydropho bia. Since that time his sufferings have been un speakable ; and he has been unable to retain any thing on his stomach. On Saturday afternoon further discoveries were made at the college, among them that of a tea-chest in the Professor s laboratory, which chest being emptied, the trunk and right thigh of a human body rolled out upon the floor. A large knife, the blade of which bore unquestionable evidence of the partial erasure of blood by some chemical substance, was also discovered. The remains in the tea-chsst were found to correspond with those found in the vault. In the grate used by Professor W.,some artificial teeth, small particles of bone, and bits of fused gold and silver, with some buttons, were found. A jury of inquest have been sworn, who will make their report on Wednesday. The Hon. Franklin Dexter has been retained as counsel for Professor W. A malicious attempt was made by one of the penny papers on Saturday to excite public odium against the Medical College in consequence of this affair. None but the brutally ignorant could be entrapped by such an appeal. The mayor, however, took precautionary measures, and several military companies were kept under arms until last night. It is a singular fact that the ground on which the Medical College is built was a gift to the institution from Dr. Parkman. Although public excitement is still intense, a healthier tone begins to be manifest in the disposition to suspend opinion, notwithstanding the accumulating facts, in regard to the individual suspected of the diabolical deed. It is hard if a blameless lifo up to nearly sixty years of age, may not claim this forbear ance from the public. Bostom, Dec. 1, 1849. The only facts of interest developed to-day in re gard to the Parkman tragedy are, that the human re mains found at the Medical College have been so far identified, that the family of Dr. Parkman are satis fied they are his. They have been accordingly giv en up to them for interment, and the funeral will take place during the week. It appears that Dr. Keep, the dentist, on examining the artificial teeth found in the laboratory of Profes sor Webster's furnace, at once pronounced them to be the same he had manufactured for the deceased. This is a terribly strong link in the chain of circum stantial evidence. Professor Webster was formally arraigned in our police court yesterday. By advice of bis counsel, Hon. Franklin Dexter, he waived an examination, and was remanded to jail to await the action of the grand jury, at the January term of the municipal court to-morrow. While in court, Professor Webster appeared calm and self-possessed. We shall have the decision of the coroners inquest.to-morrow in regard to the human remains found at the Medical College. The grounds upon which the family of Dr. Parkman have identified these remains have not yet been made public. Boston, December 6, 1849. The supposed remains of Dr. Parkman were buried from his residence, No. 8 Walnut street, this morn ing. A large concourse of persons were present, mostly attracted by curiosity. The funeral proceeded to Trinity Church cemetery, where the remains were deposited in a vault. This mysterious and horrible affair loses none of its interest ; on the contrary, it seems to increase with ev ery new revelation made. The inquest progresses very slowljr and in private. It is reported this afternoon that important discov eries have been made among the papers of the accused, which tend greatly to thicken other circumstances against him. Among other things found, was a note for $2,400 belonging to Dr. Parkman against Profes sor Webster. Correspondence of the Charleston Courier. Washington, December 1st. The three caucuses have just adjourned and I write to give the result. The Democratic caucus was pre sided over by Judge Bowlin, of Missouri. There were present about eighty members, and of these forty-two voted for Howell Cobb, of Georgia, as Speaker, and he having the majority of votes was ac cordingly nominated ; many members of the party were absent, including South Carolina members, and the Democratic free soilers. There were, of course. a number of scattering votes, of which James Thomp-, son, of Penn., had eleven. Mr. r orney, editor ot the Penmylvanian, was nominated Clerk ; Lane, Serjeant at Arms ; and Johnson, Post-Master. Mr. Went worth, of Illinois, was in the caucus, and is, thus, bound by it. The Free Soilers, in their caucus, nominated David Wilmbt, of Pa., as Speaker. They had thirteen members present, and most of them will adhere to Wilraot, until they can make some compro mise. The Whigs met in full numbers. The Free Soil ers were not with them, but half a dozen who incline that wav were present. Eight Southern members, among whom were Mr. Toombs, of Ga., Stevens, of Ga., and Cabell, ot n ia., wunorew irom ine caucus, upon offering some propositions thit ware not acced ed to. Mr. Toombs, representing these gentlemen, offered resolutions to the effect that the Whigs should not sustain any measure for the exclusion of slavery from the Territories, or its abolition in this District. They were opposed on the ground of irrelevencv to the matter in hand. With the numbers thus reduc ed, the caucus nominated Mr. Winthrop unanimously. I have not met with a single Democratic member who is of the opinion that Mr. Cobb,, or Mr. Win throp, or Mr. Wilmot can be elected. Very few Whigs are so blind as not to see that Mr. Winthrop is beaten. A distinguished Northern Whig member remarked to me, in reference to these results, that Mr. Win throD was defeated the Administration prostrated and the Union probably destroyed ! It is not to be believed that, under the present cir cumstances of excitement, any compromise can be immediately or easily made between the conflicting parties. It may be a weeic Detore any opeaxer can ha olected. But in mv opinion, IheTe must be a com promise, by which a. Northern Democratic Speaker will be cnosen. . Post-Master General's Report. The Philadel phia Ledger of yesterday contained" the1 Postmaster General's report, referring to which the Express re marks: "How it came there in advance of all other papers, and even before the President's Message is given to the world, perchance will appear bereaftejf." The report presents the deDartment in a flourishinnr condition, and Mr. Col lamer, like his predecessor, oir. vave Johnson, recommends a unitorm rate ot postage of five cents on each letter, and gives a very satisfactory account of the increased receipts of the department, rendering such a reduction possible. He complains, like Mr. Johnson, of the monopoly of railroads, and the consequent expensive transporta tion of the mail by railroad, companies -a complaint which will last as long as there are chartered com panies for this or any other public purpose whatever. As to the changes in the personale of the depart ment, they are indicative .of the comprehensive re forms which have been carried, out during the pres ent non-proaeriplive administration of General Taylor. The number of postmasters appointed within the year ending June 30th, 1849, was 6,333 of that number were 2,782 in consequnce of resignations ; 183 deaths ; 284 changes of sites ; 2,103 removals ; 11 expired commissions not renewed; 26 commis sions renewed ; 23 by becoming Presidential appoint ments, in consequence of yielding more than $1,000 per annum ; 921 new offices. '. The number of mail routes in the United States on the first day of July, 1849, was 4,943, and the num ber of contractors 4,190. The length of these routes was 167,703 miles. On these routes the mail was transported 42,547, 0G9 miles, at the cost of $2,128,514, which" makes t he average cost of transporting the mail last year six cents six mills per mile. To this should be added the transportation of the foreign mail by Southampton to Bremen, and the mail from Charleston and Savan nah, to Havanaah ; and also the transportation of the mail across the Isthmus of Panama; all of which is done at the expense of this Department to the amount of $255,692. ' ' The gross revenue for the year ending June 30th, 1849, amounts to $4,905,176 28. ' The expenditures during the year was $4,479,049 18 ; excess of gross revenue for the year, $426,127 15. The appropriations under the 12th section of the act of the 3d March, 1847, remaining in the Treas ury withdrawn, exclusive of the appropriation for the past year, already noticed, amounted to $265,555 55. Thus showing the sum of $691,682 70 unexpen ded of the revenue of the past year, including the former appropriations granted to this Department for the transportation of free matter of the Departments. The expenses for the current year are estimated at $4,750,138. N. Y. Republic. . Drr Wistis Still Triumphant. Nunda, Living ston Co., N. Y. June 20, 1848. Mr. S. W. Fowle Dear Sir Prompted by a sense of gratitude for benefits received from the use of Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cher ry, I submit the following statement : Previous to my ta king the Wild Cherry, I had been obliged to give up my business in consequence of a severe affection of the lungs. In this distressed state I was ordered to try your remedy for Consumption. I did so, and in the course of a few weeks, I was restored t comparatively good health, so that I have since been able to atend to ordinary business.

What is tdi mode or treatment bkst adapt ed to tub curb of Fevbr and Aounl It has usu ally been treated by medical men as a disease of itself. Strictly speaking it is not a disease, but a symptom of disease. It is the result of the derangement of the liver. Here lies the difficulty and here is the disease. It is therefore the liver to which the remedy should be direct ed. Here the cause exists, and it is the cauae which is to be removed, or a permanent cure will not be effected. By addressing remedies to the symptom, we leave the cause untouched, ready to produce a return of the chills and fever, on the first over exertion of the mind or body. The success of Dr. Osgood's India Cholagogue in effect ing permanent cures of such affeetions is explained by its well known deohstruent effect upon the biliary organs.

This Work forms one large and beauti ful octavo Volume of six hundred and eighty-pages, illus trated with over one hundred and sixty engravings on wood, giving accurate views of all the most remarkable places, scenes, personages, etc., encountered by the Ex pedition. - The narrative which this book comprises may bo tp lied upon, as it is the result of an Expedition fitted ott under the . auspices of the Unitod State's Government. In the course of his tour, Lieut. Lynch passed down the river Jordan to the Dead Sea, and after spending some time in exploring and investigating that strange body of water, he turned his footsteps towards Jerusalem. Ho visited all the spots in Palestine rendered sacred and memorable by the presence of The Saviour, and of the great characters in Jewish history who had preceded him ; and the account which he has given of what he saw, as well in the present race of people who inhabit that re gion, as of the face and appearance of the country gener ally, is mort interesting in its nature. Every family in the State, and especially every Bible-reader, ought to have a copy of this most attractive and valuable work. The Undersigned expects soon to watt upon the peo ple and give them an opportunity of subscribing to this rare work.
