The finance committee's amendment to include maplo sugar among those upon which a bounty is to bo paid was favored by Messrs. Edmunds aud lilair. Mr. Carlisle declared himself opposed to all sugar bounties. The amendment was agreed to, yeas: 30, nays 25. : Mr. Frye offered an amendment t pay u bounty of one cent a pound on su gar from imported molasses. This was a laigH industry which gave employment to four hundred American vessels and paid more than $300,000 a year freight to them. There was also, he said, an extensive co operago connected with the business, bat Without a bounty the whole industry would be destroyed by the bill as absolutely as it were struck by lightning. Mr. Aidrieh said the poposition could hardly receive the concurrence of tho Benate. The principle on which bounty was to bo paid ou cane, beet or sorghum sugar, was that encouragement was to bo given to duu:stic agricultural indus tries Mr. (iib.s n and Mr. Eustis argued against the whole policy of ugar boun ties and in favor of maintaining the ex isting system of duties ou sugar. Finally tho voto was taken and Mr. Frye's amendment was rejected without the yeas aud nays. Mr. Manderson ottered an amendment for the admission, free of duty, of ma chinery for tho manufacture of beet sugar aud for refunding duties collected on such machinery since January 1st, 1800. Mr. Eustis moved to amend tho amendment so as to extend it to machiu- ery for beet and sorghum sugar. tlr. Manderson opposed Mr. Eustis' proposition and so did his colleague, Mr. Paddock. The amendment gavo rise to a good deal " of discussion, tho two Louisiana Senators averting that tho eano sugar and the beet sugar machinery were pre cisely the same;4the two Nebraska Sena tors averting the contrary idea, and Mr. lliggius aud Mr. Evatts insisting that 1 there was no necessity for the amend ment, as tho great machine shops of the country wcro quite comp3:cnt to pro duce the machinery. Mr. Rcugau complained of exhibition of ecctionalism in tho bill illustrated in tho pending amendment, and in the high duties imposed on cotton ties, while binding twine was put on tho free list, but it was useless, he said, to expect justice. Mr. lilair reproved Mr. Reagan for imputations upon the Northern people tana upon tho government, to which he owed his life. Without coming to a vote Mr, Aldrich eald he would try and have all the I amendments voted on to night, so as to I have tho bill at the stage of the third y r ding to-morrow morning. He also notice that he would, tor the com i 1 Ailteo. offer an amendment that tho bill bmg tne party, we desired noomce, as private interests would not permit us to take it, even if it had come to us unanimously. we intend to spend next year travelling, if en perfect our arrangements in time. We intend to leave in January and spend six months seing America and use the re mainder of the year in viewing the sights of the Old World. To have gone to the Legislature would have postponed indefinitely the gratification of one of the chief desires of our life, viz. : to visit the points of interest in America a,nd Europe. There would have been no pe cuniary profit to us to have gone to the Legislature, as past experience has proven. The good one can do, aud the expression of confidence of the people, are its only attractions to us. At the convention friends insisted upen putting our name before the con rention for the House, but we declined for the reasons set forth above. Finally we yielded, with the understanding that we would decline if nominated, as we merely wanted the endorsement of the convention, so as to settle the question of our Democracy for those who have assumed the responsibility of reading us out of the party. We led on the first ballot, and came within three votes of being nominated on the second.

Very little fine tobacco on the market as yet, but from every quarter of tho county 1 hear that good cures have been made and all are in good spirits. The corn crop was never better. Cotton crop above the average. Schools. The schools opened this week, and Prof. Bagiey, president of the Louisburg Female College, informs me that he has already doubled as many boarders as he had at his opening lat session, and has a number more engaged. He also says that he has fifty per cent, more day scholars than last session. He is very much gratified at the opening. The male school also opens with as many as Prof. Thompson can well man age. Improvements. Two beautiful brick houses ou Market street will soon have the finishing touches given them. One will be used for a store house of general merchandise, the other for the Bank of Luisburg. Mr. E S.

They 3Iay Have Been Buried or Lost During the Revolution Certainly it was a Long Time Ago. (Special Cor. of State Clironicle.) Rockingham, N. C, Sept. 6, 1690. Not long ago a young man named Me Intyre, who lives ou Buffalo creek, in tho upper end of this county, was in a field gathering cotton. He saw on the ground some glittering object, and upon uncov ering it found it was a gold coin. Further search enabled him to find four other pieces. One is a British coin of the reign of George the Third, and the others are from the mint of Portugal and issued during the time of John the Fifth. One bears the u..io of 1732, an other of 1746 and other of 1750. Tho English coin is thin but unworn, and may possibly be a pound sterling. The others are thin also, and may be of the value of a half doubloon. The "super scription" of the Portugal coins is "JoanesV. D. G. Rex. Port et Alg." Which maybe translated "John V., By the Grace of God, King of Portugal and Algarve." When were these coin3 hidden or lost at that place ? It may have been dur ing the "War ot the Kevoluuon. Cer tainlv it was a loner while ago. The coins show little usage. Very respectfully, W. L. S. PRICE 5 CENTS. A DAY IN SALISBURY. (Special Cor. of State Chronicle.) The most centrally located of any con siderable Piedmont town is Salisbury. In fact it was the capitol of that section when the different sections of the State had, in a sense, each its own capitol. Like Raleigh and a few other towns in the State, it does not present its best front at the depot. Strange as it may seem a few thousand dollars well spent in and around the depot does more goes further toward advertising a town and impressing a stranger than ten times that nmount spent elsewhere. But any illusions gathered about the depot are speedily dispelled by tho town itself and its people especially when one has the advantage of the guidance and introduction of a native Salisbury man. Some blocks of well stocked stores many well shaded streets lined with comfortable looking houses some two or three hundred of them new a score of elegant residences aud another score of new homes now being erected combine to show the stable prosperity and the new lito of this historical old town. Driving just out the suburbs I stopped to take a look at the cotton factory a big one too with 200 looms and G.000 snindles al ready at work, and nearly double this capacity to be put into immediate oper ation. Six per cent, semi-annual divi dends just declared, the employment of one hundred and fifty operatives and the disbursement among them of five or six hundred dollars a week all together give an impressive object lesson of the benefit of one great manufacturing in terest to a town. Within sight and sound of this is a stocking manufactory in active opera tion, employing forty operatives, and within the corporate limits is the canuing factory which I was told has used this , reason a whole train load of cans. All these and others are tho product of native grit and enterprise. Without undertaking to catalogue tho other industries,sullice it to say that the new business life coming through Pied mont North Carolina has found in Salis bury a heart centre. It has now livo arteries of trade (railroads) and will soon have six. Apropos of industries it i well iu mention that industrial ed ucation has its friends here too. I wa told by a young lady that thero was a movement ou foot among the King' Daughters in North Carolina to memorialize the next General Assembly to establish an Industrial school for girls. They arc going to ask for 20, 000 to start it. So far as I know this movement began in Salisbury.
