Resolutions adopted by the Knorv'illr Conrention. !
1st. ltesolxed, Tnat in tho ?pinion of this j
Convention, the Charters ef the I.ouisville, Cin- :
cinnati and Charleston Roil Road sliould bo ac- j
c.opted, and should alternations or amendments j
hereafter be found necessary, that applications 1
ho tnado therefor to the Legislatures of the |
States granting tho sauie; and this Convention i
hereby urges upon the said States the expediency '
<jf granting such application, should t lie saino bo !,
made, and can entertain no doubt of the disposi- j
rion which will befoitbvthe Legislatures of said <
States to comply with all reasonable requests j,
which mar bo made, by tho Company when the
same shali be formed. " j i
2d. Resolved, That in tho opinion of this Con- i
vention, a practicable route for a Rail Road lias ! (
been fonnd for connecting tho City of Charleston !'
and tho Cities of Cinciuuati M&ysvillr, and Lou- !
isviile, and that tho 6ame may be constructed at !
a roasonablc cost, and entirely within the means I,
of the several States interested therein.
3d. Resolved, That in the opinion of this Con I
vention, the amount of transportation and truv- !
ellin<$ on said Road will increase tbr an indefin- ! i
ite period of time, and that it will from the com- J
pletiou of the Road, be such as to render its csti- '
mated cost a profitable investment. ^ j 4
4tk. Resulted, That we consider the*Louisvillo t '
Cincinnati, and Charleston Rail-Road as a work j 1
eminently entitled to tho patronage and support f1
oftho States through which will it pass, or which i t
may be interested therein ; and as from the rta- j
tion il character great cost and magnitude 01 the 1 1
work, it could hardly bo expected that it should ' '
he carried through by private enterprise alone, j <
wo would respectfully, and do hereby most earn- '.
cstly appeal to the said States for liberal appro- j
priations towards carrying on tho great work, 1
which when completed will be an enduring mon- ] ;
ument of their wisdom and patriotism. J
3th. Resolved, That we consider the fund ' \
which will be put at the disposal of said States j ,
by tho division among them of the Surplus Rev- |
,t ? annli^'iKln to i '
enuo 01 uio umuu, putuumi,
this groat work, which passing through several
states, will open a channel to the most extensive
social and commercial intercourse between the ;
Western States bordering on the Ohio, and the j
Great Lakes, and the States on the South Atlantic,
and the Gulph of .Mexico, thereby strength- !
ening the bonds of our lrnion, and promoting the ; I
prosperity and happiness of a largo and most in- (
t r.sting portion of our common country. This '
Convention does therefore earnestly appeal to said ,
States, to appropriate and set apart the said fund ' 1
or so much thereof as may bo necessary for that ' I
purposo, and to causo tho samo to be faithfully i j
applied to tho execution of the proposed Roid. ]
It is presumed that tho States of Tonnessco Ken- J '
tucky, Ohio, North Carolina, and South Caroli- j
na cannot receive under the distribution" Bill, tho I
tirstyear, less than nine millions of dollars, a J
sum nearly suffic ent to rnako tho Road; and ; should
Georgia, Alabama, Virginia and Indiana j
* *1 L . 1_ I
become interested in it by lateral uoaus, uio wnoio i
amount required could be raised by the appropri- !
ation of the surplus of only a single year.
We call upon the States therefore tor the pro- I
motion of thoir own best interests, and for tho j
siko of their posterity, not to suffer the vttrx to { 1
fail. '
6fA. RestltrJ, That viewing tho proposed
Road as one of vast importance to the peoplo of
the Southern and Western States, we hold them
bound by every consideration of interest and duty,
to coir.e forward to its support, by subscribing
for Stock when Books shall be opened inOc- J
tobcr next; nor c in wc entertain a doubt, that j
should tho Roid bo completed at an early day, by
tho vigorous and united efforts of the people und ;
the States interested therein, that it will amply J
remunerate thun for the capital inveit d.
7th. Rt*olr*d, That in publishing these Reso- j
lotions and the Proceedings of this Convention, j
tho samo to be accompanied by an Address to be '
prepared and published in the uamo and behalf of .
this Convention, embodying and enforcing thes? ',
views, and urging in the strongest manner upon j
the States and the people the duty of carrying !
tho great work into effect. j1

It is announced abroad that the Royal
Society of Northern Antiquaries, at Co- J
peuhagen, arc about publishing by subscription
a work which is to throw new light
upon the discovery of America; it will be
entitled "Autiqtmates Americana*,'' or a
collection of the accounts extent in Icelandic
and other Scandinavian manuscrpts
relative to voyages of discovery to North
America, made by tlx? Scandinavians in
the lOtliand following centuries. It is declared
that it will comprise testimony, the
most authentic and irrefragable, that North
America was actually discovered by the
Northmen towards the close of the lQtli
century, visited by them repeatedly during f
the 11th and 12lh, (some of theci event
making settlements as colonists,) rc-dis-1
covered towards" the close of the 13lh, and j
again repeatedly resorted to in the course i
of the 14th. It is said, moreover, that what'
serves in no small degiec to enhance the
value of these documents is the great apparent
probability; amounting, indeed, almost
to certainty, that it was a knowledge of 1
these facts Hint prompted the cver-memoro j
hie expedition of Columbus himself! \\ e j

Mr. Ilditor :?Please publish the follow- j
ing : I had thought I could stand a poll for

the duties of the ollieu than I ever did bo-!

could not discharge the duties appertaining J
to the office with honor to niyselt and constituents,
I feel it my duty to stand aside,
and am only sorry that I agreed (against
my own consent) to accept a nomination. I 1
am under obligation to my friends for their I
kind assurances of success. Had I con- ]

my feelings. I hope my friends will ex-!

A correspondence between tho late Tost Master
of X. York, Mr. S. L. Gouvcrncur and the
clerks in his office has been published, Wo extract
tho following from Mr. G's letter.
" Of tho simple fact, gentleman, of my
removal from ollicc, unconnected with a
few circumstances to which I shall not at
present advert, I do not know that I
ought to complain. Never having sought
in the first instance for place, I hare had
a tolerably fair participation in the spoils; J
and as the tenure of my ofiice has never
been distinguised by a mean subserviency
to any individuals, it was as little to be ex- j
peeled that 1 could continue in its quiet j
possession, as it was rather greatly to be j
wondered how I could have held it so '
long. The loud and urgent calls, too, j
which surround the public crib, perhaps!
justly demand an occasional sacrifice,:
to appease the hungry expectants of a '
share.
" For the deep interest you express for
my family and myself, accept our united
acknowledgments. Fear not, gentlemen,
for us; with the smiles of Providence,'
which we shall invoke, and my own exer-:
tions, we will tako care of ourselves.;
However severe at the moment, the unexpected
stro'Ve v, h:.:h fevprs official tie',
tics by which the mercantile interests 01 j
New York have been oppressed, it is sta- .
ted of one house in Pearl-street, that
during the last year, it paid more than $50,000
in extra (usurious) interest, lis capital
is orer two millions. For the accommodation
of $o0,000 for five days, it paid
$500.
At the white Snlpher Springs 200 persons

A party of eight ladies and gentlemen 1
were made prisoners by Major Kirby, of

took them all prisoners, and marched thorn |
some two ipiles, when he discharged them
on their parole of honor.

on which they have taught us perhaps too
strongly to depend, I can assure you gentlemen,
it is succeeded by u sweet repose

" To J. Benedict, C. Goodwin, 6c others.'1 j1
Mr. Nicholas Bovec and his brothers, of i
Hanover, Chautauque county New York, |1
have recently received information which i
gives them good ground to believe that 1
they have become heirs to a snug fortune
of four millions of dollar* hv the death of I -
an old lady in Holland, and that the nio- !
ney is ready for them. One of them has i

Washington's Fancell Address.?The jr
long mooted question of the writer of i ]
Washington's Farewell address, is, we s
have reason to know on the point of bcingscttled
by the pnhlication of Mr. Madison's
manuscript writings. At the close
of the lirst Presidential term of Washington,
he wrote Mr. Madison to draw up for j
him his farewell address to the people of j
the United States. With thisreauest Mr. i
* I
Madison complied, but circumstances subsequently
occurring which induced Washington
to serve another term, it was laid j
aside at the moment and not given to the }
world till his final retirement, when the
paper first drawn up still met the approval
of Washington, and with very slight alter- ^
ation was published.
Mr. Madison's original draft, together .
with the subsequent alterations, is now ,
among his pupers. Allusion to Mr. |
Madison as the writer of the address, will
be found in Jefferson's works, in a private j1
letter to Judge Johnson of Virginia, to j J
which fact may be attributed the consent i ]
given by Mr. Madison to allow the circum- ' i
stances of his writing the address to be- j:
come known after his death. | J
