Also, the stock of Iron, Lumber, and Fire Wood, which may then beou baud, and all other articles own ed and used by the said Company for keening up said Railroad, and transporruti in ontheaame. From the nature of the pro perty it will be sold en masse. The purchasers, by thu terms of the Decree, and the Act of the Legislature iu relation to it, will become, ipsa facta, a body corporate, by the u une anil style oi tilt present Company, and will acquire all the franchise, privileges, rights and immu nities now possessed by if, for the term of 80 yean, which its charter has yet to run. Th-se Tranche es and privileges are of the most advantageous kind to the Company, and may be found at large in their charter, contained iu the 2d Volume of the Revised Statutes of North Carotins, page 299, which is to bs seen at the Seats of Government, ana in most oi the Public Libraries of the Slates ol the Uuioti. The whole purchase money must bear interest, at the rate of f> per cent per annum, from ih^ay of sate, mid he paid as fol lows, to wit: $23,000 at the en" of six months, and the residue in four instalments, at intervals of ten mouths each?say ; 1st, 29th June, 1840, $23,000 2d, 201 h April, 1847, one-fourth of the remainder. 3d, 29th February, 1848, one-fourth of do. 4(b, the 29tli of December, 1848, one-fourth of do. t 3th, the 29th of October, 18-19, oue-fourtk of do.

I HAVE a short answer to make to the loug statement over H. H. Day's name. I affirm that the assertion that the suit is closed and dismissed from Court, is untrue. The suit is sti|l pending, and, ui leas further put ofT by Day, will behrought to a hearing uext term on its merits?a hearing which has not been had for want of time. I have examined the original minutes of the Court, and hare a copy of the erder in the above cause, which fully sustains what I before stated, and state again?that the merits of said cause remain to be tried as toon as the same can be heard upon amotion to be reuewed at the pleasure of the complainant. This is notthe place to try the cause, although Day has been aiming at this by his advertisements and handbills fur a year past. As the quest on between Goodyear and Day will soon come before the Court, and probably before a jnry I'oi investi gation, it is improper to put before the public sucn statements is Day is coutianuy making. 'J bey are oplculatwd, if not in tended, to prevent a fair trial, aud encourage others to pirate upon Ooodyear'a rights. The public may form some estimate of Day's anxiety to drive this case to a hearing, by the fact that, although the de lead >ut had notice of he filing of this bill or or about the 16th of August last, he did not eveu enter hit appearance therein until thellth October inst. 1 further state that, at the expiration of nearly a mouth's time permitted to Day to nut in affidavits in answer to the motion lor injunction, Day asked for and obtained ten days further lor that purpose, and this ahsne prevented the plaintiff from bring ing tlie motion to a hearing before the adjourunu-nt of court.? Aud for the purpose of setting this matter forever at rest, and ? bowing bow much reliance is to be placed upon Day's contra diction of my former statements, and whether it was to Good year or Day that the ten days were allowed to file affidavits, and the cause thereby delayed, 1 subjoin a copy of the original order in the shove cause:? Caption of the order, dated Sept. 28, 1843. Present, the Hon. Judges fMelaoa and Bet's. C buries Goodyear vs. Horace H. Day.?Ordered, that the de fendant (Horace H. Day) have ten days from this date, within which to file all the affidavits he intends to use ou the hearing of the motion lor the injunction in this case. A true cow from the minutes. ALKX'R. GARDINER, Clerk. The numerous other misstatements over Day's name, 1 do not in this place stop to mention. WILLIAM JUDSON, Solicitor for complainant Goodyear. To Tilt Pl-buic.? Goodyear vs. Day.?We at last have Day's confession that his statement that Goodyear'i suit against Day had been closed and dismissed from the Courtis u ntrue. Day also now admits, so far as can be aacertained from hia confused statements, that the motion for injunction has uot been heard and decided npon its merits. But the object of a part of Day's last communication seems to have been to show that the motion fjr injunction was ac tually made. This iu one seuse is true. But in the sense first insisted upon by Day?to wit, that the motion had been heard upon its merits, is nutrue, as staled by me in answer to Day's lormer statements, iu language which has afforded occasion for the most shallow quibbling. Day still asserts '? that he did not desire or cause the trial to be put off, and that he was ready for trial when the cause was first called up." Thisis as false us his other statements. Day, by his own admission, hadfrom the 26th of August till ihe 26th of September, to put in affidavits in opposition to the motion; and when the muuon Was on the latter day brought up, Day desired to go to bearing uj'on his own affidavit, irsmt mgthat he had a right to rrauanida .. . avita in reply to the affida vitsof complaint. Bat, after un intimation from the Court that the complainant would have the right to reply, Day requested and obtained I rum the Court teu further days to put mallidavits, thus taking mote than forty days to put in his?aHidavitt, and leaving the com plainant but n week to go into different States to procure affi davits in reply. It will be seen by reference to the minutes of the Court pub lished by Day, that the whole time asked for by complainant previous to the expiration of the ten oays exteuaed lime, was from Friday till Monday, to examine the affidavit of defendant. It will, therefore, be perceived, that I ain fully sustained in all iny former stntemiBils, and that it was Day and uot Goodyear that delayed and put otf the cause and prevented the heariug o the motion before the adjournment of the Court. The public who have read Day's statements will no doubt agree with him, ' that it has been hard for him to fight," but they will probably attribute that to the cause in whicli he is eugaged, not to the numbers against which he couteods. The public, I am also convinced, have seen quite enough in this controversy to sat isfy them that no reliance can be placed upon Day's statements ui the newspapers. I ought not, perhaps, to dismiss this matter without a cau tion to Day not to rely too much upon Goodyear's past lor bearance, in his future statements in the newspapers, lest he provoke a feeling of indignation that may^erhaps go beyond a mere public exposure WILLIAM JtDSON, 03t*? f Solicitor for complainant Goodyear.

On August 28th, a notice of motion for injunction w?s given to be heard on the hrat Monday of September On Tuesday, :lie 30lh <>l 8entemher, the defendant filed his affidavit agaiust the motion, claiming the right to read other affidavits in reply to such affidav ta the plaintiff sheuld file. But the Court in formed defendant that he was at liberty to file what affidavits fie pleased, and might have time, if he wished, but that the plaintiff would have a right lo reply. Upon this intimation from the Court, the defendant request ad, and the Court granted him tun days within which to file his affidavits with liberty to the plaiutill' to reply. The Court closed on Friday next after tlie expiration of the ten days so allowed to defendant, so thai the plaintiff bail not sufficient time to proenrr affidavits in reply, as thewitnessw resided at a distance, and in different Stales; and as the Court wna about to adjourn, they_ dismissed the motion for injunc arithont a hearing, with liberty to plaintiff to renew the same, which would allow the plaimiff time to procure the ne cessary affidavits?costs to abide the event. Accordingly the motion will be renewed again on (he first day of the next term, (the 4th Monday of November next.) It will tlma be seen how erroneous it the statement made in many of Ihe city papers, that Mr. Goodyeir'a case has been decided against him.

If the United States : Government hereaiter chooses to redeem this paper at par, and take our lands, Texu* will probably offer no j objection ; but if Texas is to make payment, she will . possibly have some regard for the law of equivalents, 1 and may refuse or be unable to pay ten or fifteen millions ! of dollars in specie, for that which neither realized to i her nor cost the holders one-third of that sura. The Civilian adds, that the prospact of redemption of Texas money at par is " neither immediate nor clear." The Caddo Oazrite states that a party ol nine gentle men from Hempstead county, Arkansas, with servants, 1 packhorses, etc., passed through Shreveport recently on their way to Texas, with the design of visiting the coun- ] ty bordering on the Guadeloupe, and perhaps to proceed 1 as far as Corpus Christi, in search of a sui*able location to emigrate to The Texas Register says : "We have been informed from a iiuarter entitled to highest respect and confidence, that a plan had been matured in Tamaulipas, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Sonora and California, lor the annexation of those provinces to the Hepublio of Texas, in case we had determined to remain separate and independent.? Several leading inen in the central part of Mexico ex pressed their determination, in tiiia event, to remove to the above named provinces in order to enjoy the bless ings o. a peaceful and stable government. This new political arrangement would undoubtedly have been at tainable, and iti.eed but be attempted to succeed. This Republic would then have extended from the gulf ef Mexico to the I'acific ocean, embracing the ftuest ports on the western'coast of North America, and giving to elf of 1' our own merchants almost a complete monopoly ofthe trade with China. But all this is now past; and we mere ly allude to the facts stated as we would to a piece of his tory which can no longer be of any use to us." The U. 8. transport steamboat Monmouth, Baker, ar- j rived at New Orleans on the 2-T.h ult , from Aransas Bay. ' She left there on the 16th, arrived at Galveston on Friday j night, and departed again on the 20th. The army at i Corpus Christi was in pretty good health, except that a few rases of dysentery had occurred. Three hundred | Mexicans ventured within 60 miles of Corpus Christi a 1 few days since, in pursuitof a body ofCamanches, which had been committing depredations on the settlements ? | The commander ef the Mexicans, being an old acquaint ance of Colonel Kinney, sent word to him that he should have called to see him, but was fearful he might be cen suied. Ax old friend in the army write* us as follows on this subject: 7th Inpaxthy Camp, Courts Christi, Ticxas, \ October 15th, 1845. ) I wrote yau by the Alabama, since which nothing of import has transpired. Yesterday Madam Humor circu lated a report that 300 Mexican soldiers Were within tie miles of Corpus Christi. 1 inquired in relation to this rumor, and find that the; e are a few small posts occupied by the Mexicans on this bank of the Rio Grande. In the vicinity of Mier, for instance, there are about 100, near Loredo about 100, and (near Camargo about 100. The Camanches came down in the vicinity of that portion of the frontier and committed depredations, killiDg and stealing. The troops from the neighborhood of tire dif ferent towns mentioned started out in pursuit of three detachments (about 100 each), and are now on the war trail. This is nothing unusual, as I learn from Col. Kinnay. Whether Gen. Taylor will or will not take any action upon this, ia yet to be determined. The steamer Monmouth goes over for repairs. She will return here again. Capt. Blake's party has not yet returned. Yours truly, The party under Capt. Blake had been previously sent out on a reeonnotsanct, we believe. We have no further intelligence whatever as to the army by this arrival. Oregon Territory.?Extract of a leter dated Oregon, July 14th, 1845?At the entrance of the pass of Sweet Water, 950 miles from Independence, 250 miles from Fort Larimie, 60 miles from the summit of the Rocky Mountains, and 310 miles from Fort Hall. We expect to meet a company of sixteen men and two ladies, in the morning returning from Oregon to the States ; and this is to let you know that we are among the land of the living?(yes, and living on buffalo meat.) Our company, consisting of 135 wagons, divided into three divisions, on account of feed, have been divided into small companies of from 8 to 20 wagons. I am in company of Col. Taylor, Rice, Risley, and families, from Ohio. We are all well. No doubt you have often heard of crossing the Rocky Mountains; but let me assure you, the manner in which it is represented is a humbug. We are now within three days' drive from Oregon and the summit of tho mountain, and since we struck the first spur of the mountain, a distance of 250 miles, we have nut ascended a hill as bad as the one be tween Hennepin and Granville?they are very long. As to wood and water, we have always found them in abun dance. This day, for the first time, we saw the snow clad hills, in the distance. We have bad soveral lrosty nights of late. It is very dry and dusty on the roads, all sand or soft clay. All the difficulty as to roads, ia as soou as you leave the State of Missouri; emigrants to Oregon need a pilot from Independence or St. Joseph's. Emigrants should leave Independence by the lOtn of April, or St. Joseph's by the 15th. St Joseph is the best starting point, as it is 80 miles nearer, and then you avoid the worst Indians east of the mountains?the Caws?and save ferrying Caw or Kansas river, a switt, and when high, very difficult stream. From tho time you leave tho Caw villages, there is ne place that will admit of a white man settling, as there is but little or no timber; and none but on the streams, and that, with the exception of a little bircbi is all Cottonwood. There is no timber growing on die banks of the Tlatt, We have seen no Indians since we left Fort Larimie.? We are now on the battle ground of the Sous, Crows and Shians. Every summer they come on to Sweet Water, to look for scalps They hunt no buffalo, and conse quently they are very plenty ; we see them daily in gangs of from 100 to Too. There is not a day passes, but our hunters kill two or three, take a little ot the meat and leave the balance for the wolves, which are very nu merous. There are plenty of mountain sheep and gris ley bears in the mountains. Mr. Thompson is with Ra mage and Henry ; this company consist* of eight wa- j gous, all from Putnam and Marshall counties, l he first i company which went to Oregon this season, consisted ol 3 wagons and 9 men. There ia no danger to be appre hended from the Indians, that is, the Indians ol the plains. There have been but fe .v deaths amongst the emigrants this season and the few have beenchildieD and aged people. Why, sir, it is almost an impossibility for a man to gat sick in this country ; there are neither dews nor rains; occasionally showers, but not sufficient to lay the dust. Mexico and Havana.?By the Empresario, Col lins, we received, says the New Orleans Picayune of the -25th October, papers and letters from our corre spondent*, the substance of which we give below :? Havana, Oct. 18, 1846.?The steamer from Vera Cruz arrived on the 6th instant, her regular day, but brought no die of papers. A friend has iurnished me with the following extract from one of his letters, dated "Vkka Cruz, Oct. 1, 1846.?We have at Sacrificios four corvettes and two brigs, (all Americans,) a steamer in sight, supposed to be the Mississippi. We are in daily expectation to hear of a brush between the troops at the Rio Grande, but 1 cannot bring myself to helieve there will bo war between the governments. The fact is, this government has neither the means nor the men capable of producing such means as would be necessary for a so<ere struggle;.they have got into difficulties with the French Minister, and now they are about to do the same with the English, commencing with the house of Man ning, Macintosh it Co.; they bought the contract for the coinage of the Mint of Guanajuato, for a certain length of time, from Santa Anna, advancing the money for said co ntract, new they wish to annul said contract, on tne plea that Santa Anna's Government was only provision al?the English minister has notitled them, that not only that contract, but any other that has been made with En glish subjects are well made and must be respected. On the 6th inst., there had like to be a revolution in Mexico; tho conducts was to be.seized; Gomez, Farias, Canalizo and Santa Anna were to be the trump cards; but it was discovered and prevented. We have no business here at present. The miserable devils in Congress promise us a new tariff, but God knows when we will have it,and in tho interim we are afraid to ombark in anything." We have had a dull and quiet summer in Havana. It has been perfectly healthy all season. For the past month we have had heavy showers every day for two or three hours; and, in fact, the same may be said of all the Is land. The crops look well?the rains having come i the time it was most wanted. The Tacon theatre is open, with a fair company, but is not very well patronized. Wo had an amateur per formance of "Norma" a few nights since, to in troduce a yonng lady, a Creole of Matanzas, in the part of Norma. The "Teatro Principal" was crowded to wit ness her dehut, and 1 am assured by several excellent judges that it was a most capital performance. New York, Oct. 29, l&W. Editor Hkralii :?Having observed the name of Col. J. L>, Stevenson among the list of candidates put in nomination for the Assemb'y by the democrat ic party of the city of New York, I consider it an act ot gratitude and duty I owe that gentleman to i inform my fellow mechanics that I was in his em- | ploy three years, during which time I was frequently sick, and at one time confined to my house three f months with a broken leg; and during all times of illness and confinement my weekly pay was regu larly sent me, and my doctor's bill, amounting to onwards ot seventy dollars, paid by Col. Stevenson. This act of kindness arose from tne impulse ot his generous heart, without the least obligation on his part to tiflbrd me such relief. And during the time 1 was in his employ it was his custom never to stop the nay of any mechanic or laborer who became sick while in his service, notwithstanding he was well aware that in many instances advantage was taken of hi> generosity. John Moore, Cooper, 102 Lewis street. New Course of Trade ?We yesterday saw a bill of lading of twenty hogsheads of sugar, shipped to a merchant of this place Irom Cincinnati, by way of theMiami canal,which we were informed coat lesi.than it would have cost if purchased in New York.

Be mine the task to match from oblivion the prettiest place in the State of New Jersey, and present it to your numerous readers in all its original beauty. Be Wide re. the seat of justice for Warren county, is beautifully situated on the bank of the Delaware River, sixty miles above Philadelphia, and contains twelve hundred inhabi tants. The Pequest Creek runs through its centre, form ing numerous mill seats, upon some of which are alreadv erected splendid flouring mills and iron foundries. The land upon which the town is built, and taking In a circumference of three miles around, is extremely level; vast mountains hem in the town on three sides, and on the fourth it is bounded bv the noble Delaware, which separates us from Pennsylvania. The apace en closed by the before mentioned mountains, forms one vast amphitheatre, and brings forcibly to the mind of the beholder old Rome's Gladitorial games, performed in the colliseum, under circumstances the most barba rous. The town contains a court house and jail, several churches, an academy for the instruction of youth in the higher branches of learning, a bank, a public square con taining three acres,ornamented with numerous trees,and more than a dozen splendid private lesidences. Here are domiciled the wealthy and fashionable, the learned and gay. Situated as we are, on a high and commanding situation, with the pure mountain air circulating around us, we enjoy to a surpassing extent nature's best bounty, health. We have doctors, but like Othello, " their oc cupation's gone and as for lawyers, those pests of society, we do not need their services A marriage in high life took place place with us last evening. The parties were Jebiel G. Shipman, Esq., counsellor at law, and Miss Louisa Morris, daughter of William C. Morris, Esq., Prosecuting Attorney for this county. The bridegroom is a young man of no ordi nary talents and promise. He is the same young man, who but a year ago, when scarcely twenty-one years of age, volunteered in behalf of the State against one of the authors of the dreadful murder perpetrated near Changewater in our county, and to whose exertions on the occasion of his trial, the citizens of this county are indebted more tuan to any other for his conviction. Never was a capital case snmmed up more eloquently, and Dever was conviction more forcibly pressed upon the minds of jurors. The result was anticipated, a ver dict of guilty crowned his efforts. Eminent counsel were engaged both for and against the prisoner, hut his speech was the crowning one on that occasion. The bride is lovley beyond description, and not quite seven teen. Her beauties have completely unfolded them selves, and thus early in life has this fair flower been plucked. She could not have selected a fitter partner to accompany her through life, than he whom she now calls her lord. Possessed of a handsome person, ele gantly formed and proportioned, in him is personified all that is attractive and prepossessing. The wedding was on a scale af magnificence unequal led in our town. All the beauty, wealth and fashion of the place were there. The table groaned beneath the precious things upon them. Everything passed oft in a satisfactory manner to all concerned. This morn ing the bridegroom and bride set off on an excursion to Niagara Falls. We are now 011 the eve of an exciting election. The democrats and whigs both claim the State. What the result will be no one can predict. New BrightoA, Nov. I, 1940. Great Excitement?The People against an Oppreitiv* Mo nopoly?-i Sew Boat to he put on?Old Captain* die' charged?Election, cf-c.

The other boat is not worth at the most, $30,000. Therefore, allowing over $33,000 for privileges at docks, Ike., which is an over estimate in valuation, the opulent proprietor intends to make a profit from his bargain, should hd*ef feet a sale, of about $60,000, which the people will hot pay. The ferry between Staten Island and New York, at the present day, will pay sufficiently well to grant a moderate convenience to residents and transient visitors, and there is no doubt but this praiseworthy measure will soon go into effect The island is now comparatively deserted by its sum mer visitors, and election topics will occupy the minds of the inhabitants until such exciting time is over Se veral political as well as other meetings are to take place, which will be of some interest and probably worthy of a report in the Herald. Harrisburc;, Pa., Oct. 31,1843 Bird'* Eye View of Harritbui g?Newtpapm, 4"C., ??. On my leaving New Vork, I resolved to furnish yeu with a desultory sketch from the first town in Pennsyl vania at which I could oommand a spare hour to make inquiries and observations. These who have never seen this place can have no idea whatever of its natural and artificial beauties. The town is charmingly situated on the bank of the majestic Susquehanna, which is orna mented with islands of a rich and valuable description. The State House is a magnificent edifice, well worthy the noble State of which it is the capital. His excellen cy Governor Shank, with all the State officers are at pre sent here, closely attentive to the important duties oi their various and responsible situations. There are many elegant churches in this town?the principal ones are the Presbyterian, Episcopalian, Catholic, and Lutheran. 1'here are others of less note, which consequently I leave unnoticed. Notwithstanding all that nature and irt have done for this delightful town, it cannot be called a literary plaoe, there being only one school deserving the appellation, properly speaking?this school is con lueted under the patronage of the somewhat celebrated Captain Partidge. It is of a mixed nature, military and literary. The teachers are highly competent. There aie several newspapers printed here. The most respectable of them are the Democratic Union? the State organ?Intelligencer, Reporter, and a paper in the German language. There is another paper called the Jlrgui, which hardly merits the compliment of a mention. It is fatherless, having no editor known as such, and perhaps all the better, as the editorial chair could be filled more ablv and creditably by one of your active cartiers thau by the unknown father of this orphan sheet. There is a great desire manifested here of having a railroad extended front Harrisburg to Pittsburg. Whe ther it will take place or not is a subject for talk and nothing more, as there has been made as yet no public demonstration in its favor. Towboat Explosion.?The towboat Persian, Cap. tain Riddle, from the Passes, with ships Thomas B. Wales and Tyrin in tow, burst one of her boilers at 8 o'clock yesterday morning, 22 miles below the city, scalding eight persons? vr/.: C.

'Kith The Earthqfake in Niwau.-Families in a portion at least of the South Ward in this city felt the shock on Sunday evening ae'night at about the time it was noticed in New York and Connecticut. A gen tleman who was in his arbor in the garden at the mo ment, it being quite dark, haard at the same time the loose rails overhead rattle against the house, and the usual rumbling sounds resembling the noise of carriage wheels. It was also fait in Westfleld, in this county, about the same hour, in Orange County, New York, many of the citixens suppe -ed the shock to be the Hun day milk train! Captain Hawkins, of the sloop Randall II. Green, reports that he perceived the shock when ofl Eaton's Nock, in Long Island Sound. They were at supper, and the oonouetiou was so violent that they ell rushed on dock, thinking that the vessel had struck. Important Arrest op Abolitionist*.?About dark lust evening, a white man by ihe name of Wil liam Flalar, who soys ho lives in Lincoln county, Mo., and an old free negro man, called Richmond, who lias been Uviug here a long time, were caught by Captain McDonough, just as they were pushing off in a skifl, with a slave, belonging to Mr. Curie, which they weie about to oonvey to Illinois Two other negroes, sup posed to be slaves, were on the shore, evidently waiting to be conveyed across, but on seeing the others arrested, took to their heels and escaped. Capt. McDonough de serves great credit for thus brtuging these lurking ras. cola, that have so long lived in our midst, to justice He has been for some time on their track, and mijfht have arrested them oven sooner, hot he preferred waiting nn til they were in a condition when their guiltwonM be be yon<l doubt.
