This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

OBPOSITEI BY HARVARD COU£QEUMM(X

PREFACE. 



A L»^6i8i ATiVK 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 -tate. 

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, ix. 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 hoped, 
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 each 
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.

State Debt. 



Digitized by VjOOQIC 



Digitized by VjOOQ iC 



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, 1878. 

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 exienso 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 $17,881,046, with 
past due interest, say $5,506,154.85. For specific information I distribute the 
same as follows : 

Ist. 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 Jn 

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

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

total failuresy 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.j 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 

Digitized by VjOOQIC 



140 NORTH CAROLINA MANUAL. 

The above companies have never declared a dividend. The WUmington, 
Charlotte and Rntherford 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 CaroUna 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 will, 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 & 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 Ilailroad Company, and it is probable 

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

Carolina Railroad Company. 
8. 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, $ 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 1868 
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 ancT 
Rutherford Railroad Company, the Western North Carolina Railroad Company, 
and under the Funding Act of 1866. But none were for coupons of Convention 
or special tax bonds.

STATE DEBT. 141 

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

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

Williamston and Tarboro Railroad Companj*, 150,000 



$1,350,000 
The bonds for the Chatham Railroad were disposed of, It is stated, at about 
sixty 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 
follows : 
WHmington, Charlotte and Rutherford Railroad, $ 8,000,000 

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 
road 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 increase 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 18?2, it was in round numbers, $82,100,000. I am unable to give 
a compaiison 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 
l)aying 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 



Digitized by VjOOQIC 



142 NORTH CAROLINA MANUAL. 

this add the expense of supportmg the State government and It will be necessary 
to raise $l,9p0,000 per annum, or 1 and 3-5 per cent, of the real and personal pro])- 
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^our 
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, or | 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 energ}' in adherence to their ow^n 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 
win 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 sys- 
tem of labor, the ruin of our wealthiest people by the abolition of slavery, the 
death Jor disabling of multitudes of our young men in battle or by disease,^the 
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 the 
debt, that State is North Carolina. 

It is said by some that the General Assembly ought to surrender to the creditor.* 
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 and 
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. 14:3 

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 ihclined 
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.

ALAMANCE COUNTY. 

Alamance County was erected in 1848, out of Orange County. It is bounded 
on the north by Caswell, east by Orange, south by Chatham, and west by Guil- 
ford. It derives its name from Alamance Creek, famous in early l^story for 
a. battle fought on its banks, between the Royal Governor of the colony, William 
Tryon, and the people under Herman Husbands, Rednap Howell, and others. 

Its capital is Graham, named in compliment to Hon. William A. Graham, 54 
miles from Raleigh.

ANSON COUNTY. 



157 



Anson County was erected as early as 1749, from Bladen County, and compre- 
hended all the western portion of the State, from New Hanover and Bladen on 
the east, as far as the limits of the State extended on the west, more than one- 
half of the State. 

It derives its name from Admiral Anson, the celebrated Circumnavigator, who 
at the time (1749) was in the zenith of his fame, having only a short time previ- 
ous obtained a victory over the French fleet off Cape Finisterre.

CUMBERLAND COUNTY. 



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

U is situated in nearly the centre of the State, having Harnett county on the 
noi-th, 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 tovm. was settled 
in 1762. It was first called Campbelltown, then Cross Creek, and in 1784, 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. 
He 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.

NORTH CAROLINA MANUAL. 

GRANVILLE COUNTY. 



Granville County was formed in 1746, from Edgecombe county, and was so 
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, and 
west by Person and Orange counties. 

Its capital is Oxford, 36 miles north of Raleigh.

Until 1791, there was in North Carolina a county called Dobbs, in compliment 
to Arthur Dobbs, Royal Governor of the State in 1754. In 1791, Dobbs was divi- 
ded ^to Lenoir and Glasgow, and in 1799, the name of Greene was substituted 
for that of Glasgow. 

It was named in compliment to General Nathaniel Greene, who was one of the 
bravest, most sagacious, and most successful officers of the revolution, and the 
saviour of the south from the invasions of the British. 

Greene county is situated in the south-eastern part of the State. Bounded on 
the north by Wilson, east by Pitt, south by Lenoir, and west by Wayne. 

Its capital is Snow Hill, 89 miles east of Raleigh.

HALIFAX COUNTY. 



Halifax County was formed inl75&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,' 
from the sacred hair of ]a certain virgin, ^ horn 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 Koanoke River, 
which 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 87 miles.

LINCOLN COUNTY. 



269 



Lincoln County was formerly called Tryon, in honor of William Troy, the 
Royal Governor ; but whose odious oppressions caused the G^eral 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 12th 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 U ilmington, 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 nortli 
by the Virginia Ime, 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.

NOBTH CABOLIKA MANUAL. 

WAKE COUNTY 



Was 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 auspices 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 bom 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 wtis beheaded in 1618.
