NOTICES* OF THE PRESS: 

"Branson's North Carolina Directory, for 1872, tells where every body Jives and what busines every 
body follows. It makes an interesting volume of about 300 pages, and Remarkably accurate when the 
difficulty of accumulating so much varied information is duly considered. It is a valuable book to busi- 
ness men," — Biblical Recorder. 

"It is the fourth edition since 1365, and as accurate and full as it was possible to make it. It is altogeth- 
er a most valuable bookfor everyone wishing to communicate with that State. We wish that every South- 
ern State had a Branson to get up Its directory. But that is expecting too much. Such indefatigable and 
painstaking workers are not found every where "—The South, N. Y. 

"After a careful examination, we are satisfied that it is arranged on a better and more thorough system 
than any directory with which we have any acquaintance. We are satisfied, from what we know of Mr. 
Branson, that all the information conveyed in this handy and handsome volume is fully trustworthy.'' — 
Petersburg Index. 



"Exhibits labor and research, and better arranged than we have ever seen in any similar work. We re- 
commend the Directory to everybody who desires to know everything about North Carolina and her peo- 
ple." — Norfolk Journal. 

"It contains a vast amount cf information gathered within a small compass and condensed so as the 
amount of lacts may be increased without unnecessary detail in reference to them." — Petetsburg Express. 

"Every merchant iu the State who has business transactions with North Carolina, and every oin' who 
purposes to establish such business relations should possess a copy of this iudispensible guide. It con- 
tains a vast amount of information." — Petersburg Express. 

"It is the most complete and best arranged State Directory we have ever seen. Much judicious care 
and labor have been expended in the production of this Directory." — Richmond Whig. 

"The work is eo-nprehensive in its details and systematic in arrangement, giving evidence of much pa- 
tient and earnest labor. Every business man should procure a copy."— Petersburg Progress 

"An excellent Directory of the State of North Carolina. To Those having trade in North Carolina it ap- 
pears almost invaluable." — Richmond Dispatch. 



"This valuable work is promptly out. and makes a very handsome typographical appearance." — Norfolk 
Journal 

"All business men should have it." — Norfolk Virginian

Wilson Collegiate Institute, 

Striotly KTon-Sectarian. 

The School kept as a well-regulated, high-toned family. A full corps 
of able and experienced teachers. Practicalness, thoroughness, and 
modernness, our mottoes. Everything taught that students desire to 
learn. The best methods of European Universities employed. A library, 
containing the most reliable information upon every subject of human 
knowledge, freely open to our students at all times. All our pupils 
taught to think for themselves, and to govern themselves. Their phys- 
ical, intellectual and moral natures, all carefully cultivated, the physical 
subordinated, in some degree, to the intellectual, and both of these, in 
this order, decidedly to the moral. The formation of a strong and virtu- 
ous character, made the great end of education. 

The session extends from the 1st of October to the last of June. Stu- 
dents admitted at any time, and charged only for the time they come. 
Tuition from $4 to $6 per month, and board, (including everything) $15 
per month. 

Wilson is the highest and healthiest point on the Wilmington & Weldon R. R.

1st. No restriction on Residence or Travel. 

2d. No extra charge on lives of Females. 

3d. Policies incontestable after Five Years. 

4th. The rates of Interest on the Funds of the Company are higher 
than those on the Funds of Companies located in other States, thus in- 
suring larger Dividends to Policy Holders. 

5th. The Directors and Officers of the Company are prominent NORTH 
CAROLINIANS, who are KNOWN to be men of INTEGRITY and 
WORTH. 

6th. The Company is established on a solid and permanent basis, steps 
having been taken to increase the Capital Stock to $500,000. 

7th. All the Funds of the Company are Invested in this State 
and Circulated among our own People. This fact should commend 
the Company, above all others, to North Carolinians. It is well known 
that hundreds of thousands of Dollars in Life Premiums are annually 
sent North to enrich Northern Capitalists, thus continually draining our 
people of immense amounts which should be kept at home. On this 
ground the friends of this Company confidently appeal to every son of 
the Old North State, and ask their support for this Home Institution, 
which, while it offers substantially all the advantages of Northern Com- 
panies, helps to build up Home Interests.

Burlce County. 



Surfaee.— Buncombe County is situated on 
the west side of the Blue Ridge, and oc- 
cupies a beautiful rolling country down 
the Swannanoa and French Broad riv- 
ers, which streams, water it finely and 
along the valleys of which are found 
thousands of acres of very rich lands. 
Nearly all the land in this county is sus- 
ceptible of cultivation, as the fine grow- 
th of timber even on the sides of the 
mountains indicates. The scenery is 
enchanting — the air invogoratiug — a 
long famed resort for invalids. 

Staples.-— Corn, Wheat, Rye, Oats and 
Live Stock. Four Cheese Factories 
have of late years produced large quan- 
tities of the very finest Cheese. Fruits 
grown here are extremely fine, and in 
great quantity. Tobacco is now being 
grown succ essfully and of fine quality.'

Surface— Burke county, is situated on the 
southern slope of the Blue Ridge. The 
surface is mountaineous, with here and 
there rich valleys. The timber is fine 
indicating a good strong virgin soil. 
The water power is very fine. The 
scenery is hardly surpassed on the con- 
tinent. Morganton and the springs 
near are fine places of summer resort. 

Stnples-VfhQdX and Corn are thegreat Sta- 
ples. Oats, Rye, Butter and Live Stock 
are items of considerable importance. 
Fruit grown here is large and delicious.

Mines.

(A statement of the most Productive Mines in 
Cabarrus County.— By Capt. W. H. Orchard, 
(Practical Miner.) 

The Reed Mine, is situated about 12 
miles south from Concord, the largest nug- 
get found in the State was found at this 
mine; the ores on the lower hill veins are 
exceedingly rich ; of late years no work has 
been done on that part of the mine; the 
upper hill has been very rich in places and 
it is thought the mine would pay well, with 
proper management — depth 100 feet. — 
Owned by Philadelphia parties. 

The Furr Mine, adjoining the Reed on 
the north side, has been very recently 
opened, a shaft has been sunk 75 feet. — 
vein carrying galena rich in silver with 
iron pyrites and quartz.— Owned by Allen 
Furr, Cabarrus. 

The First National Mine is situated 
nine miles south-east from Concord, and 
consists of a large quartz ledge; a twenty 
stamp mill with the necessary steam power 
has been erected during the present year ; 
but little work has been done to test the 
value of the mine.— Owned by a New York 
Company. 

TnE Cabarrus Mine, adjoining is on 
the same ledge; a ten stamp mill is in pro- 
cess of erection but like the First National 
it is entirely undeveloped. — Owned by a 
Washington Company, D. C. 

The Phosnix Mine is situated 7 miles 
south-east from Concord; this property has 
several veins, all of which are productive. 
The property is, in the very heart of the 
mineral belt, and has steam power with 
ten stamp mill complete, and has yielded 
some 930, 000 dollars; it is, beyond doubt, 
one of the most valuable propertys in the 
State. — Owned mostly by R. T. Brock.

Cabarrus County. 



The Excelsior Mine, adjoining the 
Phoenix on the east, is another valuable 
property, and has mostly the same veins 
passing through it; this property has not 
been worked to the same extent as the 
Phoenix and therefore has yielded less. — 
Owned by W. P. Fumiss, New York- 

The Bangle Mine is situated to the 
north of the Phoenix, and adjoining; this 
property is also very extensive, and em- 
braces a great number of veins, so exten- 
sive that, if properly opened, would yield 
fifty ton of ore per day. — Owned by R. D. 
Cullen, New York. 

To the north and adjoining the Bangle 
Mine, is the Faggert Mine ; this property 
is much smaller in extent than those be- 
fore mentioned, but is a valuable mine. — 
Owned by J. T. Faggert, Cabarrus Co. 

The North Barrier Mine is situated to 
the south of the Phoenix, and adjoining. 
It embraces some of the Phoenix veins; 
two steam engines with a ten stamp mill 
are erected on the mine and in operation ; 
the prospects of the mine are very flatter- 
ing. — Owned by a Washington Company, 
District of Columbia. 

The Barrier property is adjoining the 
North Barrier Mine to the southwest, and 
from which the North Barrier Mine takes 
its name; this property is very valuable 
and was always considered by the late 
Prof. Emmons as one among the most va- 
luable mines on the Atlantic coast. 

The Pioneer Mills Mine is one among 
the earliest discovered mines of the State; 
it is situated about twelve miles south-west 
from Concord; this mine has yielded large 
amounts of gold, and is a valuable prop- 
erty as well for copper as gold. — Owned 
by Aiken & McCullock, Albany, N. Y. 

There are a number of smaller orop- 
ertys, but not sufficiently developed to es- 
tablish a permanent existence, although 
some are in actual operation, to-wit: 

The Fisher Mine in operation by a Pitts- 
burg Company, Penn. 

The Blackwelder Mine in operation by a 
Buffalo Company, New York. 

The Blackwelder, Bost, Ritchie, Barrin- 
ger, owned in the county, but not worked. 

The Cruse, Sudwick, Shinpock, Dry, 
Barnhardt, Barrier, [on Buffalo Creek on 
the First National Ledge,] Shinn, Freed- 
man, Rhoda Furr, [on the First National 
Mine Ledge,] Tucker, Fink, Roger, Gil- 
liam's, Newell, Pharr, Bost or Rocky Riv- 
er. — Owned in the county and worked. 

Several of these having no history will 
some day after a thorough development of 
the gold resources of this county prove to 
be valuable mines and yielding largely of 
the precious metals.

Surface. — The land is low and level, much 
of it in swamps and marshes. It ex- 
tends up and down the sound for seven- 
ty miles, and a portion of the county in 
narrow strips, called the Banks, lies be- 
tween the sound and the ocean. Much 
of the swamps is very rich and very pro- 
ductive when well drained. 

Stnp'es — There are some very fine cotton 
lands in this county. The moisture of 
the climate has a tendency to produce a 
fine soft fabric. Corn grows well, and 
in the eastern portion, along the sound. 
Ground peas are produced to perfection. 

The piney woods are a little off from the 
sound and are valuable for naval stores. 

The fisheries are extensive and often very 
valuable.

Surface. — Caswell County lies on the South 
bank of Dan River, and on small tribu- 
tary streams. The surface is moderately 
uneven, and the -soil generally good, 
especially for Tobacco. There are prob- 
ably no finer Tobacco lands in America. 

Staples. — Tobacco is the great Staple in 
this County. The Leaf grown here is 
celebrated far and near. Wheat, Corn 
and Oats grow finely, but are not con- 
sidered so profitable as Tobacco.

Surfaec— This county is situated in the 
bend of the Catawba river, which makes 
a curve around the north and east sides. 
The land is moderately uneven, and 
most of it quite productive, it is well 
watered and plenty of water power for 
immense machinery. Catawba is a pros- 
perous county, out of debt taxes low, 
and money in the Treasury — a desirable 
place to settle. The celebrated Spark- 
1 .ng Catawba Springs are in Catawba. 

Staphs. — Corn and Wheat are the great 
staples, and large quantities are ship- 
ped to other counties. Irish potatoes 
and grass are grown with success. Live 
stock is profitable.

Surface. — This county is undulatiog and 
much of it rocky. The uplands are poor, 
but susceptible of a high state of culti- 
vation. The small valleys along the 
streams are rich. In almost every part 
of the county there is abundant water- 
power, and especially on Deep River 
which runs directly through from North- 
West to South-East. 

Staples — Wheat is produced largely. Corn, 
oats and grass grow finely. Cotton is 
raised to advantage in the southern part 
of the county. Tobacco grows well in 
the northern and western portions. The 
Mineral wealth is hardly surpassed by 
any other county in the State, there 
being an abundance of Coal, Iron and 
Copper. The Bituminous Coal-bed is 
inexhaustible; it is now being worked 
successfully at Egypt.

Surface. — This County is low and level. It 
is traversed by the Neuse River running 
from North West to South East. On 
both sides of the river there is much 
swamp land that produces heavy crops 
when well drained. The advantages of 
water transportation are fine. 

Staples. — Cotton and Corn are the great 
Staples. Shingles and Lumber are man- 
ufactured profitably. 

Naval Stores and Fish are items of very 
considerable profit. New-Berne is one 
of the finest Fish markets in the State.

Surface.— Dare County embraces a small 
area of high land, and large bodies of 
Swamp and Marsh. The surface is cut 
up by extensive collections of water: 
hence the principal occupation of the 
people is that of fishing. 

Nag's Head, on the eastern shore, is a no- 
ted summer resort. Education and en- 
terprise, would make this one of the fin- 
est counties in the State. It is noted for 
its sea-breezes and healthfuluess. The 
first English settlement was made here. 
Virginia Dare, the first native white fe- 
male of this Continent, was born in this 
county, hence the name: and the first 
religious services of this country were 
performed on the banks of the Roanoke 
Sound. 

Staples.— Fish form the great staple of this 
county. The product of this item for 
1871 is estimated at over two hundred 
thousand dollars. Rogers & Etheridge 
alone did a business of some seventy- 
five thousand dollars last year. Corn, 
sweet potatoes and scuppernong grapes 
grow finely. This is the native home of 
the scuppernong.

Surface.— Duplin County is situated 
mostly on the east side of the Wil- 
mington and Weklon R. R. and 
on the head w r aters of the North- 
East Cape Fear River ; it is level and 
much of the land good. The loca- 
tion and surface are such as to make 
it susceptible of a high state of cul- 
tivation. 

Staples. — Cotton is the great staple, 
and is cultivated with intelligence 
and marked success. Corn and sweet 
potatoes are profitable crops. Naval 
stores are still produced in consid- 
erable quantities, and some years 
bring in large amounts of money. 
The scuppernong grage is perfectly 
at home here ; is grown extensively 
and of the finest kind.

Surface. — This County is located on the 
west side of the Roanoke River; gen- 
erally level and soil rich. Convenient 
railroad and river transportation make 
it very desirable for farmers. This is 
doubtless one of the finest Counties in 
the State. 

Staples.— Cotton is the great staple. Corn 
and sweet potatoes are profitable crop3, 
and tobacco is grown successfully in 
the northern part of the County. Plenty 
of water power, and timber.

Si.rfacr. — New Haiover is situated be- 
tween the Cape Fear River and Onslow 
Bay, and lays in the shape of a cone 
with the apex extending south to New 
Inlet. The land is level, and much of it 
swampy— quite rich and very produc- 
tive when well drained. The advan- 
tages of navigation are very fine. 

Staples. — Cotton, corn, rice, ground peas, 
vegetables, naval stores and fish. 

Wilmington is said to lead every other 
city in the world in the naval store bu- 
siness. 

The climate and soil of New Hanover make 
it very valuable for trucking, vegetables 
being at least twenty-five days earlier 
than atNorfolk and points furtherNorth. 

This is also the banner county of the State 
in the production of ground peas, which 
are very profitable to the planter.

Swr/aee-Undulating, hilly, and some small 
mountains— much of it rocky. It is well 
watered by Deep River, Uwharrie, and 
various small tributary streams. There 
are many small plots of land lying along 
the streams, known as botton lands; 
these are generally rich. The county al- 
together is finely timbered, and abounds 
in good water powers. 

Staples.— Com, Wheat, Oats, Rye, Flax, 
and Fruits in great variety. 

Gold has been obtained in remunerative 
quantities at various mines in the coun- 
ty. There are five cotton factories on Deep 
River, which have been operated for the 
list fifteen years, and have added much 
material interest to the county.
