PREFACE, 



A Legislative Manual and Political Register for the State of North 
Carolina is herewith presented, for the first time, in the history of the 
State. 

The want of such a compilation is felt by every citizen in the State. 

In very many of the States of the Union, such a work is annually 
published by public patronage, and is much esteemed as affording a 
ready reference to names, dates and facts, which are inaccessible to 
some, of difficulty to many, and important to all. 

The compiler feels grateful to many patriotic citizens of North Caro- 
lina for aid afforded. In the collection of so many names and facts, 
and the compilation of so large an array of figures, it is to be expected 
that some errors will occur. Much labor and pains have been taken to 
guard against them; errors will creep in, however, and the compiler 
will be grateful to any one who may detect them, and communicate the 
facts, that they may be avoided in future editions. It is to be hoi 
however, that should some errors occur, they will be so small as not to 
mislead the observant reader, or impair the usefulness of the work. 

In future editions, (as the work is, by law, to be prepared for eaeli 
succeeding Legislature,) such errors will be avoided; and by improve- 
ment in matter and embellishments in mode, this work more worthy of 
its distinguished subject, and the patronage of its patriotic citizens. 

JOHN H. WHEELER.

[The preamble and resolution following, preceded the original proposition of 
Hie amendments, and, as they have been supposed by a high equity judge, (S

those amendments, they are here inserted. They will be found in the journals of 
the first session of the first Congress. 

Congress of the United States, begun and held at the city of New York, on 
Wednesday, the 4th of March, 1789. The conventions of a number of the States 
having, at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order 
to prevent misconstruction or abuses of its powers, that further declaratory and 
restrictive clauses should be added ; and as extending the ground of public con- 
fidence in the government, will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution, —

of America, in Congress assembled, two-thirds of both houses concurring, that 
the following articles be proposed to the legislatures of the several States, as

fronted with the witnesses against him ; to have compulsory process for obtain- 
ing witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.

CHAPTER I. 

PREAMBLE. 

We, the people of the State of North Carolina, grateful to Almighty God, the 
Sovereign Ruler of Nations, for the preservation of the American Union, and the 
existence of our civil, political and religious liberties, and acknowledging our de- 
pendence upon Him, for the continuance of those blessings to us and our pos- 
terity, do, for the more certain security thereof, and for the better government of 
this State, ordain and establish this Constitution ; 

ARTICLE L 

DECLARATION OF RIGHTS. 

That the great, general and essential principles of liberty and free government, 
may be recognized and established, and that the relations of this State to the 
Union and government of the United States, and those of the people of this State, 
to the rest of the American people, may be defined and affirmed, we do declare : 

Section 1. The equality and rights of men : That we hold it to be self-evident 
that all men are created equal ; that they are endowed by their Creator with cer- 
tain unalienable rights ; that among these are life, liberty, the enjoyment of the 
fruits of their own labor, and the pursuit of happiness. 

Sec. 2. Pblitu-al power and government : That all political power is vested in, 
and derived from the people ; all government of right originates from the people, 
is founded upon their will only, and is instituted solely for the good of the whole. 

Sec. 3. Internal government of the State : That the people of this State have the 
inherent, sole and exclusive right of regulating the internal government and po- 
lice thereof, and of altering and abolishing their Constitution and form of govern- 
ment, whenever it may be necessary to their safety and happiness ; but every 
such right should be exercised in pursuance of law, and consistently with the 
Constitution of the United States. 

Sec. 4. No right to secede : That this State shall ever remain a member of the 
American Union ; that the people thereof are part of the American nation ; that 
there is no right on the part of this State to secede, and that all attempts from 



38 NORTH CAROLINA MANUAL. 

whatever source or upon whatever pretext, to dissolve said Union, or to sever said 
nation, ought to be resisted with the whole power of the State. 

Sec. 5. Allegiance: That every citizen of this State owes paramount allegiance 
to the Constitution and Government of the United States, and that no law or ordi- 
nance of the State in contravention or subversion thereof, can have any binding 
force. 

Sec. 6. Public debt : The State shall never assume or pay, or authorize the col- 
lection of, any debt or obligation, express or implied, incurred in aid of insurrec- 
tion or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipa- 
tion of any slave. 

Sec. 7. Exclusive Privileges : No man or set of men are entitled to exclusive or 
separate emoluments or privileges from the community but in consideration of 
public services. 

Sec. 8. Legislative, Executive, and Judicial power distinct: The Legislative, Ex- 
ecutive, and Supreme judicial powers of the government ought to be forever sepa- 
rate and distinct from each other. 

Sec. 9. Power of suspending laws : All power of suspending laws, or the execution 
of laws, by any authority, without the consent of the Representatives of the people, 
is injurious to their rights, and ought not to be exercised. 

Sec. 10. Elections: All elections ought to be free. 

Sec. 11. Criminal p>rosecuticn\s : In all criminal prosecutions, every man has the 
right to be informed of the accusation against him and to confront the accusers 
and witnesses with other testimony, and to have counsel for his defence, and not 
be compelled to give evidence against himself, or to pay costs, jail fees, or neces- 
sary witness fees of the defence, unless found guilty. 

Sec. 12. Answer to criminal charges : No person shall be put to answer any crim- 
inal charge, except as hereinafter allowed, but by indictment, presentment, or 
impeachment. 

Sec. 13. Trial by jury: No person shall be convicted of any crime but by the 
unanimous verdict of a jury of good and lawful men in open court. The Legis- 
lature may, however, provide other means of trial, for petty misdemeanors, with 
the right of appeal. 

Sec. 14. Bail : Excessive bail should not be required, nor excessive fines im- 
posed, nor cruel or unusual punishments inflicted. 

Sec. 15. /Search Warrants: General warrants, whereby any officer or messenger 
may be commanded to search suspected places, without evidence of the act com- 
mitted, or to seize any person or persons not named, whose offence is not partic- 
ularly described and supported by evidence, are dangerous to liberty and ought 
not to be granted. 



CONSTITUTION OF NORTH CAROLINA. 59 

Sec. 16. Imprisonment for debt: There shall be no imprisonment for debt in this 
State, except in eases of fraud. 

Sec. 17. No person to he imprisoned, &c, except by law: No person ought to be

law of the land. 

Sec. 18. Habeas Corpus: Every person restrained of his liberty, is entitled to a 
remedy to enquire into the lawfulness thereof, and to remove the same, if unlaw- 
ful ; and such remedy ought not to be denied or delayed. 

Sec. 19. Controversies respecting property : In all controversies at law respecting 
] iroperty, the ancient mode of trial by jury is one of the best securities of the rights 
of the people, and ought to remain sacred and inviolable. 

Sec. 20. Freedom of the press : The freedom of the press is one. of the great bul- 
warks of liberty, and therefore ought never to be restrained, but every individual 
shall be held responsible for the abuse of the same. 

Sec. 21. Habeas Corpus : The privileges of the writ of habeas coipus shall not be 
suspended.

taxed, or made subject to the payment of any impost or duty, without the consent 
of themselves, or their representatives in General Assembly, freely given.

to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall 
not be infringed ; and, as standing armies, in time of peace, are dangerous to lib- 
erty, they ought not to be kept up, and the military should be kept under 6trict 
subordination to, and governed by, the civil power. 

Sec. 25. .Rigid to assemble, d-e. : The people have a right to assemble together to 
consult for their common good, to instruct their representatives, and to apply to

done, ought to be passed.

State Debt. 



FROM ANNUAL REPORT OF THE STATE TREAS- 
URER TO THE GOVERNOR OF NORTH CAROLINA, 
FOR FISCAL YEAR ENDING SEPTEMBER 30, 1873. 



STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, 
Treasury Department, 
Raleigh, Nov. 12th, 1873. 

I again call the attention of the General Assembly to the necessity of making 
some provision in regard to the debt. The statements show in cxtenso the amount 
of the same, when due and for what purpose issued. It is seen that the entire 
amount, excluding special tax and unconstitutional bonds, is $17,881,045, with 
past due interest, say $5,506,154.85. For specific information I distribute the 
same as follows : 

1st. Old or ante-war bonds, dated prior to the war, total amount, $ 8,378,200 
Accrued interest, 2,513,460 



Total, $10,891,660 

These were sold by the State, or by its agents, on an average at par for gold. 

There is no charge that their proceeds were not honestly expended, although in 

some instances the investments were unfortunate. For example, the following 

enterprises, for which $291,000 bonds are outstanding, are almost, if not quite 

total fail) i res, adding a little, if anything, to the wealth of the State, viz : 

Cape Fear and Deep River Navigation Works, $145,500 

Fayetteville and Western Plank Road, 50,500 

Neuse and Tar River Improvements, 25,000 

Fayetteville and Centre Plank Road, 45,000 

Fayetteville and Warsaw Plank Road, 10,000 

Tar River, 15,000 



$291,000 
The following enterprises, for which $4,210,500 bonds are outstanding, are not 

failures, i. e., they add something to the prosperity of the country, but the interest 

of the State in them has little, if any market value : 
Atlantic and North Carolina Railroad, $1,351,500 

Albemarle and Chesapeake Canal, 324,000 

Western (Coal Fields) Railroad, 386,000 

Western North Carolina Railroad, 1,136,000 

Wilmington, Charlotte and Rutherford Railroad, (now Carolina 
Central,) 1,013,000 

Total, $4,210,500 



140 NORTH CAROLINA MANUAL. 

The above companies have never declared a dividend. The Wilmington, 
Charlotte and Rutherford Railroad Company has gone out of the hands of the 
State altogether by sale of all its franchise and property. 

The following investments, for which bonds now outstanding amount to 
$2,865,000, have considerable value, viz : 
The Insane Asylum, $ 71,000 

North Carolina Railroad, 2,794,000 

The bonds issued for the North Carolina Railroad Company are made by the 
charter of the Company a lien on the State stock in the Company. The bond- 
holders, under a decree of the United States Circuit Court, in the suit of Swazey 
and others vs. the North Carolina Railroad Company and others, are now receiv- 
ing the dividends and Mill, no doubt, at least when the bonds become due, obtain 
the stock itself, if they so desire. 

2. The second class of bonds consists of those issued since the war, but under 
acts passed before, as follows : 
Wilmington, Charlotte «fc Rutherford Railroad, § 434,000 

Western North Carolina Railroad, 2,294,000 



Total principal, $2,728,000 

These bonds were sold for not over about sixty cents in the dollar for currency, 

when gold was at a large premium, netting to the company considerably less than 

fifty cents in gold. 

I have already stated that the interest of the State has been altogether lost in 

the Wilmington, Charlotte and Rutherford Railroad Company, and it is probable 

that the same will sooner or later be the case in regard to the Western North 

Carolina Railroad Company. 
3. There is a third class of bonds issued during the late war, and for that 

reason not marketable, but having been for internal improvement purposes, 

should be included in a general settlement of our debt, viz : 
Wilmington, Charlotte and Rutherford Railroad Company, § 493,000 

Western North Carolina Railroad Company, 220,000 

Western Railroad Company, 200,000 



$ 913,000 

4. A fourth class of bonds consists of those issued to take up past due interest, 

viz : 

Under the Funding Act of 1866, $ 2,417,400 

Under the Funding Act of 1868, 1,711,400 



Total principal, 8 4,128,800 

Nearly all the bonds issued under the former act were for old bonds matured, 
and for coupons of old bonds. Those issued under the Funding Act of 1S6S 
were for old bonds matured, all recognized bonds that had become defaced and 
mutilated, bonds of the denomination of §100 and *200, coupons of old bonds 
and coupons of bonds issued since the war to the Wilmington, Charlotte and 
Rutherford Railroad Company, the Western North Carolina Railroad Company, 
and under the Funding Act of 18G6. But none were for coupons of Convention 
or special tax bonds. 



STATE DEBT. 141 

5. A fifth clas.T of bonds comprises those issued under ordinances or acts pass- 
ed since the war, viz : 
To Chatham Railroad Company, (now Raleigh and Augusta Air 

Line,) under ordinance of Convention of 1868, $ 1,200,000 

Williamston and Tarboro Railroad Company, 150,000 



$1,350,000 
The bonds for the Chatham Railroad were disposed of, it is stated, at about 
*ixty cents in currency. What amount the $150,000 to the Williamston and Tar- 
boro Railroad brought I am not informed ; at any rate the investment has been 
disastrous, and now the interest of the State is entirely lost by sale under bank- 
ruptcy proceedings. 

Lastly, are the '• special tax bonds," in the aggregate $11,407,000, detailed as 
billows: . 
Wilmington, Charlotte and Rutherford Railroad, $ 3,000,000 

Western N. C. Railroad (Eastern Division,) 273,000 

Western N. C. Railroad (Western Division,) 6,367,000 

Western (Coal Fields) Railroad, 1,320,000 

Williamston and Tarboro Railroad, 300,000 

Atlantic, Tennessee and Ohio Railroad (outstanding,) 147,000 



$11,407,000 

Of the above, the first million of dollars of bonds issued to the Wilmington, 
Charlotte and Rutherford Railroad Company, were sold, it is said, at about fifty 
cents in the dollar and the proceeds were used in paying the debts of the com- 
pany contracted on construction account, but the residue, about $2,000,000, was 
sold at a heavy sacrifice at almost nominal prices, and the company derived little 
benefit from them. The same may be said of those issued for the Western 
North Carolina Railroad Company. At any rate, but little work was done on the 
load from their proceeds. The bonds for the "Williamston and Tarboro Railroad 
Company were sold at better rates, but as said above, the State has lost its entire 
investment. The Western (Coal Fields) Railroad Company derived no benefit 
worthy of mention from the $1,320,000 issued for that Company. 

The foregoing statements show that the experience of the State in railroad and 
navigation enterprises has been unfortunate, with one exception, the North Car- 
olina. Railroad Company. Even this was for many years non-dividend paying. 
Practically, as to the rest of the debt, except that contracted on account of the 
Insane Asylum, the State has nothing whatever to show, except whatever gene- 
ral in • 'ease of property has been made by the partial construction of the works. 

Such general improvement in the value of property in the State does not exist. 
The valuation of the real estate of North Carolina, in 1860, was in round numbers 
§97,670,000. In 1872, it was in round numbers, $82,100,000. I am unable to give 
a comparison as to personal property, because it was not taxed according to its 
value until 1868, but I think as the total valuation of real and personal estate, in 
1872, was $123,500,000, there has been a similar retrogade as to both. 

I have gone into this matter in such detail because those who sneer at our not 
paying interest on the public debt ignore the facts of our situation. 

Omitting special tax bonds altogether, the interest on the rest of our debt, sup- 
posing our accrued interest to be funded, would be $1,406,663.99 per annum. To 



142 NORTH CAROLINA MANUAL. 

this add the expense of supporting the State government and it will he necessary 
to raise §1,900,000 per annum, or 1 and 3-5 per cent, of the real and personal prop- 
erty. Add an amount for county taxation equal to that for State government 
expenses, and we have, outside the towns and cities, 2 and 1-10 per cent, of pur 
property. And in many of the cities and towns the levies for municipal purposes 
are as large, if not larger. Now add, as the holders of special tax bonds propose, 
a tax of $855,090, orf of 1 per cent, on the property, and we have a grand total 
of 2 and 8-10 per cent. 

It is manifest that our people cannot and will not pay such enormous levies. 
Any attempt to enforce it would result in total repudiation. Even if any General 
Assembly should vote a levy at present, even omitting special tax bonds, the peo- 
ple would reverse their action at the next election. But I am strongly of opinion 
that good policy requires a speedy adjustment of the public debt. Delay is dan- 
gerous. The interest is accumulating The popular mind is becoming accus- 
tomed to the alternative of repudiation. Our good fame is stigmatized. Our 
bond-holders are a class of influential men, and their increasing ill-humor and 
consequent denunciation of our State, not only affect the credit of the citizens, 
but operate to drive off immigration and capital from our limits. 

The re-establishment of the public credit will besides tend to nerve our people 
to greater energy in adherence to their own contracts. Nothing so much tends 
to impair morality in the citizen as the spectacle of laxity of principle in the com- 
monwealth. 

And then the restoration of credit is essential to any future negotiations for 
borrowing money. The bonds of the State, if allowed to remain outstanding, 
will be a perpetual reminder of our breach of faith. In all financial circles they 
will be exhibited as proofs that any new ventures in our securities will be as dis- 
astrous as the investments in the repudiated securities. If, however, we can 
compromise the debt, any sacrifices the creditors submit to will be charged where 
they justly belong, to the terrible losses of the war. 

I have already stated those losses are demonstrated by the present condition of 
the investments entered into by the State. It is not necessary to add to the list 
the enormous destruction of our property by the war, the annihilation of our s\ s- 
tem of labor, the ruiu of our wealthiest people by the abolition of slavery, tin- 
death "or disabling of multitudes of our young men in battle or by disease, Mb e 
sweeping away of our personal property, our horses, our cattle, our farming im- 
plements, the deterioration of our lands. It is not necessary to call to mind the 
effects on a half ruined people of the financial troubles of 1867 and of the present 
year. Every fair-minded man will admit that if ever a State can be justified in 
demanding that creditors should abate part of their demands proportioned to 
losses by causes unforeseen by both parties at the time of the creation of tin- 
debt, that State is North Carolina. 

It is said by some that the General Assembly ought to surrender to the creditors 
all the State property acquired by the creation of the debt, and refuse to pay any 
more. I have shown that in several instances the interest of the State has been 
sacrificed. For example, I state its lien on the Wilmington, Charlotte ami 
Rutherford Railroad Company has been subordinated to another mortgage, by 
the foreclosure of which the road has passed into other hands. Its stock in the 
Western North Carolina Railroad Company is threatened by foreclosure of a like 
mortgage. It would have been lost a year ago if the General Assembly had not 






STATE DEBT. 14J5 

authorized an appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States. The surrender 
of interests whose value has been impaired or destroyed by voluntary action of 
the State will not ha^e any appearance of fairness. 

In one case a considerable portion of the bonds might be exchanged for stock 
of the State. I mean the North Carolina Railroad Company. The holders of 
bonds issued for that company have already obtained a decree for sequestration 
of the dividends. It is threatened to apply to the court for a further decree to 
sell the stock to pay deficiencies of past due interest unpaid. Whether this be 
done or not, certainly at the maturity of the bonds in 1883,-'84 and '85, the bond- 
holders can claim such sale. I respectfully suggest whether it might not be ad- 
visable to authorize the exchange at once. This would reduce the debt much 
more than it would be on a sale of the stock under decree of the court. 

The most feasible plan for settling the question of the public debt is to au- 
thorize the issue of new bonds, with a tax levied in the act for the payment of 
the interest, holders of bonds of the State to be allowed to surrender the same 
and receive the new bonds at such rate by way of compromise as might be pre- 
scribed by the General Assembly. I would respectfully suggest that one of the 
new bonds be offered for two of the old or ante-war bonds and those issued to 
fund the interest of the same, of like denominations, for three of all other bonds 
issued since the war, except special tax bonds. As to the latter, let a commission 
be appointed, whose duty it shall be to estimate what portion of the proceeds 
went into our public works, and report to the General Assembly. Then the As- 
sembly can declare valid a part of the special tax bonds proportioned to such 
amount realized. 

Of course if any creditor should prefer to decline the proposal indicated and 
take his chances for better terms hereafter, he could do so. But I am inclined 
to think that after a full explanation of the poverty of the State, most, if not all, 
would enter into the arrangement. 

I earnestly hope some plan will be carried into effect. I greatly fear that longer 
delay will result in entire repudiation by inaction at least. Already such a policy 
is advocated by men of influence, and there is danger that it will become popular. 
Prompt action only will defeat it. 

I learn by the public prints that the Auditor and myself are threatened with a 
suit by the holders of special tax bonds. This would be in effect a suit against a 
sovereign State, prohibited by the Constitution of the United States. It will be 
resisted, of course, to the last extremity. I am informed that the Governor and 
Attorney General have full power to employ counsel in such defence — if not, I 
recommend that such power be granted by the General Assembly. 

That the State shall pay these bonds in full— many of which were fraudulently 
sold by State agents, nearly all under circumstances which amounted to notice to 
prudent men not to buy — cannot be entertained, in my opinion, for a moment.

ASHE COUNTY. 

Ashe County was formed in 1799 from "that portion of Wilkes lying west of 
the extreme height of the Appalachian Mountains." It is the extreme northwest 
corner of the State ; bounded on the north by the Virginia line, east by the Ap- 
palachian Mountains, which separate it from Wilkes and Alleghany, and south by 
Watauga, Wilkes and Caldwell Counties. 

It was called in honor of Samuel Ashe, who was but a short time before the 
erection of this county, Governor of the State. 

The character of Governor Ashe is one of which North Carolina may be well 
proud. 

Its capital town preserves in North Carolina the name of Thomas Jefferson, the 
third President of the United States. Its distance from Raleigh 202 miles.

CHOWAN COUNTY. 

Chowan County was one of the original precincts of the Lords Proprietors, 
under charter of King Charles II., and derives its name from the tribe of Indians, 
Chowanokes, who once owned and inhabited this territory. 

It is situated in the north-eastern part of the State ; bounded on the north by 
Gates County, on the east by Perquimans, on the south by the Albemarle Sound, 
and on the west by the Chowan River, which separates it from Gates and Hert- 
ford Counties. 

Its capital is Edenton, named in compliment after Charles Eden, the royal 
Governor of the Provice in 1720. He died in 1722, and lies buried in Bertie 
County. 

This ancient borough was settled in 1716, which was originally called Queen- 
Anne's Creek.

from Charles the Second was granted. He was a brave cavalier, and old soldier 
of the German discipline, and supposed husband to the Queen of Bohemia. 

It is situated in the eastern part of the State, bounded on the north by Pitt and 
Beaufort and Pamlico counties, on the east by the Pamlico Sound, on the south 
by Carteret and Jones, and on the west by Pitt and Lenoir counties. 

Its capital is Newborn, one of the largest and oldest towns in the State ; beau- 
tifully located at the confluence of the Neuse and Trent rivers. It derives its 
name from Bern, the place of nativity of Christopher Baron de Graaffenreidt, who, 
in 1709, emigrated to this State and settled near this place.

CUMBERLAND COUNTY. 



Cumberland County was formed in 1754, from the upper part of Bladen; 
derives it name from the Duke of Cumberland. 

It is situated in nearly the centre of the State, having Harnett county on the 
north, Sampson on the east, Bladen and Robeson on the south, Richmond and 
Moore counties on the west. 

Its capital town is Fayetteville. This flourishing and ancient toAvn was settled 
in 1762. It was first called Campbelltown, then Cross Creek, and in 17S4, its 
name was changed to Fayetteville, in honor of General Lafayette, who was a 
native of France, and who perilled his life and fortune in the cause of liberty. 
II i- was a Major-General in the American army, fought in her battles, was 
wounded at Brandywine, and having aided in the freedom of this country, he 
returned to his native land. 

Fayetteville is distant from Raleigh sixty miles. It is located on the Cape Fear 
River, which is navigable to this place for steam and other boats. 

On the 29th of May, 1831, Fayetteville was almost wholly destroyed by fire.

CURRITUCK COUNTY. 

Currituck County was one of the early precincts of the State in 1729, when 
the Lords Proprietors surrendered their rights to the English Crown. It derives 
its name from a tribe of Indians who once inhabited and owned the country. 

Its location is the extreme north-eastern portion of North Carolina: bounded 
on the north by the Virginia line, east by the Atlantic Ocean, south by the Al- 
bemarle Sound, and west by Camden County. 

Its court house, on Currituck Sound, is beautifully located, and is distant from 
Raleigh 242 miles.

NORTH CAROLINA MANUAL, 



GRANVILLE COUNTY 



Granville County was formed in 1746, from Edgecombe county, and was - i 
called in honor of the owner of the soil. 

The King of England (Charles the II.) granted to Sir George Carteret, and 
seven other English noblemen, in 1663, a charter for this region, with much 
more, and it was called Carolina from him. In 1729 these proprietors surrender- 
ed to the English crown all their franchises, except John (son of Sir George Car- 
teret, who died in 1696.) He was afterwards created Earl of Granville. He re- 
tained his eighth part of the soil. The line was run in 1743. Lord Granville's 
territory was from 35 deg., 34 min. south, to the Virginia line on the north, and 
from the Atlantic Ocean on the east, to the Pacific Ocean on the west. A most 
princely domain. 

Its situation is in the northern part of the State, and is bounded on the north 
by the Virginia line, east by Warren and Franklin counties, south by "Wake, ami 
v. est by Person and Orange counties. 

Its capital is Oxford, 36 miles north of Raleigh.

HALIFAX COUNTY. 



Halifax County was formed in 1758 from Edgecombe county, and in this year 
the court house for the counties of Edgecombe, Granville and Northampton was 
moved from Enfield to the town of Halifax. 

It derives its name from the Earl of Halifax, who, in 1758, was the first Lord 
of the Board of Trade. " It is a name of Saxon origin, and means 'holy hair, 7 
from the sacred hair of a certain virgin, whom a clerk beheaded, because she 
resisted his passion. She was canonized." It is situated in the north-eastern 
part of the State, and bounded on the north and east by the Roanoke River r 
\\ inch separates it from Northampton county, on the south by Martin, Edge- 
combe and Nash counties, and the west by the county of Warren. Its capital 
town is Halifax, which is beautifully located on the west bank of the Roanoke 
River, navigable for steam and other boats, and distant from Raleigh S7 miles.

LINCOLN COUNTY. 

Lincoln County was formerly called Tryon, in honor of William Troy, the 
Royal Governor ; but whose odious oppressions caused the General Assembly to 
blot out his name, and in 1779 to divide this territory into Lincoln and Rutherford. 

Lincoln county was so called in honor of Benjamin Lincoln, who, at the time 
of its formation, was fighting the battles of his country against the British at 
Charleston. 

Bounded on the north by Catawba, east by Catawba River, which separates it 
from Iredell and Mecklenburg, south by Gaston, and west by Cleaveland. 

Its county seat, Lincolnton, is 172 miles distant from Raleigh.

New Hanover is the 13th Senatorial District. 



NORTHAMPTON COUNTY 



Northampton County was formed in 1741, from Bertie ; but history and tra- 
dition are alike silent as to the origin of its name. Martin, in his History, merely 
states that the Legislature met '-at Wilmington, in the latter part of 1741, and 
the session was of short duration ; the county of Bertie was divided, and the 
upper part of it established as a new county, to which the name of Northampton, 
was given. 

It is situated in the north-eastern part of the State ; and bounded on the north 
by the Virgiuia line, east by Hertford and Bertie, south by Halifax, and west by 
the Roanoke River, which separates it from Halifax. 

Its capital is Jackson, and preserves the name of Andrew Jackson, the hero 
of New Orleans, and sixth President of the United States.

NORTH CAROLINA MANUAL. 



WAKE COUNTY 



V; as erected in 1770, from Orange, Johnston and Cumberland. 

The troubles arising from the oppression and extortion in this war, induced 
Governor Tryon to divide Orange county into three divisions : Guilford, Chatham 
and Wake. Wake was so called in compliment to the maiden name of Governor 
Tryon's wife. 

Wake is bounded on the north by Granville and Franklin counties, on the east 
by Franklin and Johnston, on the south by Johnston and Harnett, and on the west 
by Chatham and Orange. 

In this county is Raleigh, the capital of the State of North Carolina. 

Most appropriately does it preserve the name of the statesman and soldier, un- 
der whose anspices was fitted out the first expedition that ever landed in the Uni- 
ted States. His name is illustrious as a gallant warrior, as a sagacious states- 
man, and as a faithful and accurate historian ; he was born in 1552. Under the 
smiles of the "Virgin Queen " Elizabeth, he rose to favor and honors, but after 
her death, from the pusillanimous policy of James I, he was condemned for 
offences of which he was innocent, and was beheaded in 1618.
