8 Proceedings of the Stoclcholclers
Since your last annual meeting, our charter has been amended bv
the Legislature,giving our Company authority to purchase the West-ern
North Carolina Rail Road, and power to complete the same to
Paint Rock. Also power to consolidate, (should our Company think
proper) with what is known as the Duck Town branch of the West-ern
Division of the Western North Carolina Rail Road, and with the
Atlantic & North Carolina Rail Road.
The consolidation of this Line from Morehead City to Paint Rock
would cause a complete revolution in the rail road system of the
State, adding greatly to the value of your property, and increasing
your dividends—a fact that will not be denied by any rail road man
in or out of the State. Yet, designing men, through the newspapers
and otherwise, have tried to persuade you, and the construction
bond holders, that it would destroy your income and lessen your se-curities.
Nothing was ever more false or delusive. But who are the
parties that have tried to create this impression ? Among the origi-nators
of this opposition are a few broken down politicians of our
State who cannot, on account of their imbecility and failure at every-thing,
comprehend how such a grand scheme cau possibly be car-ried
There is another set of opponents, generally known in and out of
the State, as black mailers. They originate and bring suits for the
purpose of forcing our Company to buy them off, &c.
Others have brought suit, thinking their interests really in danger.
The most of whom, however, are willing to sell their bonds and stock
at a reasonable price.
There is another interest that desires to defeat the consolidation
of these roads, because it will aid in building up North Carolina to
the disadvantage of Virginia. This is the rail road interest of Vir-ginia.
Indeed it seems that all the rail road Companies in this State
have arrayed themselves against this great enterprise.
As a rail road man, I cannot see how it will injure any road in our
State. Broken down, and almost insolvent Companies claim that
they will buy and complete the Western North Carolina Rail Road,
when it is well known in rail road circles, that they are now on their
North Carolina Rail Road Co. 9
last legs, and are not able to consnmmate what they have so flippant-ly
and glowingly published in the newspapers about their immediate
It is true, if we are successful in carrying out this great under-taking,
it will take away a large portion of the income of the Atlan-tic,
Mississippi & Ohio Kail Eoad, now controlled by Gen. Mahone
As our grades will be easier, and the friendship of the East Tennes-see,
Virginia & Georgia Kail Road Company, with whom we will
connect, having been secured, will add much in this direction.
The construction bond holders have recently obtained a decision
in the Federal Court that so much of the State stock, as may be nec-essary,
shall be sold to pay the interest in arrears due by the State
on said bonds : from which decision the Governor has taken an ap-peal,
and we have great hopes that the Supreme Court of the United
States will still recognize the sovereign power of NorthCar olina and
declare that the decision of the lower Court is erroneous and contra-ry
to the Constitution of the United States.
This is the opinion of the best lawyers of the State, especially of
the old fashioned lawyers who stick to the original land marks of our
Constitution. In no event, however, can this decision defeat this
great undertaking, as there is still enough patriotism left in the State
to defeat our recreant sons and Northern sharks from buying our
stock at a nominal price, and thereby destroying our rail road inter-est
in the State.
Should our people and our private stockholders listen to the argu-ment
of certain interested newspapers and lawyers of the State, and
allow this stock to be sold, and the balance exchanged for the so-call-ed
construction bonds, your rail road will never be consolidated, and
the private stock of your Company will become worthless.
I am fully convinced that the true friends of North Carolina and
the private stockholders of this Company will be able to defeat this
great calamity, and put to shame those who have so ingeniously tried
to destroy the best interest of the State.
Tour obedient servant,
W. A. SMITH, President.

Address of Gov. John M. Morehead, delivered at
Hillsboro, in July (866.
The wise and sagacious statesmen who have taken thought as to
the best improvement to develope the exhaustless resources and in-crease
the wealth of North Carolina, have uniformly agreed upon
the one great work to effect that object, to-wit: One great leading
trunk line of railway from the magnificent harbor of Beaufort to the
The great, wise and patriotic philosopher and statesman, Dr. Jo-seph
Caldwell, made this improvement the subject of his thought by
day and his meditation by night. His visit to Europe and observa-tions
there quickened his zeal and aroused his interest in the work
to enthusiasm. His thoughts and his counsels on that subject he has
left on record for our benefit. He is gone. The scheme, and his
views on that scheme, survive. The great, good and wise Gaston no
less zealously advocated this great work.
Charter after charter, by the influence of these great men was
^ranted to effect the wurk, but the gigantic work was thought to be
too much for the limited means the State and her citizens could then
command, and the charters remain monuments of their wisdom and
our folly or inability to carry them out. A more successful plan, it
is hoped, was finally adopted—to do this great work by sections.
The North Carolina Railroad, your section, was the first under-taken.
The contracts on that road required contractors to begin on
the first of January, 1852, and to finish their contracts on or before
the first of January, 185G. On the 29th of January, 1856, the road-bed
was ready for the passage of trains from Charlotte to Goldsboro,
a distance of 223 miles. In the meantime other charters were grant-ed
for sections of this great work, and the 7th of June, 1858, found
the road-bed of the Atlantic and North Carolina Railroad ready for
trains from Goldsboro to Beaufort Harbor, and a few months there-after
found the trains running to within a few miles of Morganton
on the Western Extension, with the whole route surveyed to the Ten-
22 Proceedings of the Stockholders
nessee line, and considerable progress made in grading beyond Mor
ganton, which by the line of the survey for the road is distant from
the Tennessee line by the French Broad route, some 110 miles, and
by the Ducktown route some few miles more.
Here let us pause and take a survey of what has been done in
seven years towards this great work.
From Beaufort Harbor to Goldsboro, the Atlantic & North Caro-lina
Railroad Company have built 96 miles. From Goldsboro to
Charlotte you (the North Corulina Railroad,) have built 223 miles.
From Salisbury to within 4 miles of Morganton the Western North
Carolina Railroad have built 76 miles, besides a large amount of grad-ing
ready or nearly so for the superstructure, making in all 395 miles,
from which deduct 43 miles, from Salisbury to Charlotte, and we
have actually built of this great line 352 miles in one continuous
Think of it ! Seven years ! I In the lifetime of a State or nation,
seven years is but as a moment in its existence. It would not cover the
dawing of its infancy. In the great day of a nation's improvements,
seven years would not be the sunrise of that day. "We have done
this great work in the twilight of our great day of Internal Improve-ment—
a day which dawned so beautifully upon us, but which be-came
enveloped in that gloom which shrouds the nation in mourn-ing.
But let us despair not. That day which dawned so beautifully upon
us will yet reach its meridian splendor. Then let us be up and do-ing
that which we, ere this, would have done, but for circumstances
we could not control.
Already Tennessee is pushing an arm of her Virginia and Tennes-see
Road from Morrietown to the North Carolina line at Paint Rock.
She will shortly connect Cleveland with her Ducktown copper mines
and the North Carolina line near that place. Shall we meet our love-ly
daughter at the line and welcome her to the maternal bosom ?
Surely, surely we will, and then the hopes, the dreams of the great
and good Caldwell and Gaston will be realized.
The trade of Memphis will find its wared and best Atlantic port at
Beaufort Harbor. East Tennessee will find herself within less than
North Carolina Bail Road Go. 28
a day's travel of the same port, while the exhaustless mines of Duck-town
and our own mountains of minerals will crowd our freight-ed
trains beyond their capacity for transportation.
Can we do it ? Yes ! Yes ! ! And we will if your powerful body
will only say the word and the Legislature will permit you to do it.
You have the honor of being the pioneers in this great work, ex-ecuted
in sections. Do yourselves now the honor to consolidate the
whole and complete the original design. You, the most powerful
and most independent of the three corporations, can, with much
grace propose to your sister corporations consolidation upon terms
of justice and equity, manifesting selfishness in naught but your
name. Yield not that. The new consolidated corporation should
be still "the North Carolina Railroad Company." This will be a
corporation worthy of you, of your State and of the great destinies
that await it.
It has been proposed to permit the western section to go into
hands that will complete it. Resist the proposition with all your
might, strength and influence, except it be to bring it unto the con-solidated
corporation. Let no corporation stand between you, and
the trade of the vast west, within your own State.
You may ask, will the consolidated corporations be able to com-plete
the line ? Unquestionably it will. It will be a corporation
possessed of property already costing some eight or nine million of
dollars, well and cheaply invested. The consolidated debt of all
these corporations will be a mere trifle compared to its ability to pay,
and with its great capital and large income it will meet but little dif-ficulty
in raising the means to defray present indebtedness and to
complete the line. And when completed, who can predict the vast
consequences resulting from its completion ?
I desire to put the prediction upon record, as I now do, that if
this scheme of consolidation is successfully carried out, that in less
than five years after its completion, the net income of a single year
will pay every debt now owed by the three corporations; that the
net income of the next two successive years will pay the whole cost
of the completion of the road to the Tennessee line by the nearest
route; and the next year or two years' net profit will pay the whole
24 Proceedings of the Stockholders
cost of the road from the fork to the Tennessee line by the other
route; which will be the more direct and profitable line—the con-struction
of both of which lines, in due time, I would most earnest-ly
I take it for granted, opposition to the consolidation of the Roads
will arise. To witness the struggle of the lines now connecting with
your Road, for the little straggling freight that now passes over it,
is presumptive evidence that they will resist consolidation, lest all
the freight will pass directly to the ocean by your own line. Heed
them not I Consult only the great interests of your own State and
of yourselves and thereby you will consult even the interests of these
| opposing lines, if they but knew it
The drippings and leakage, by the wayside of this great, overtaxed
freight trunk line will give them more freight than your whole Road
now yields them. Besides, this higgling and underbidding about the
price of freight, will cease, and your Road will dictate its own terms
With this great freight line terminating on your own excellent
harbor, what commercial advantages may we not hope for?
But there are those who pretend to doubt the capacity of our har-bor
for extended commerce. Refer such sceptics to the fleet of up-wards
of three hundred war vessels and transports which so lately
rode safely on its bosom. Our own lines of weekly and monthly
steamers, will carry our own produce, in our own vessels from our
own port across the Atlantic to THOSE who do not trample upon
our rights, nor impose taxes without representation.
We shall then avoid those wasting exactions made at the North in
the charges for freight, fire insurance, marine insurance, advertising
city taxes, wharfage, drayage, storage and labor, with the commis-sions
on the whole, which often leaves scarcely enough to pay the,
express company for bringing back what they foot up as " net pro-ceedh."
We shall also avoid being thrown continually it contact with
those, Avhose leaders seem to be more inimical and vindictive towards
us in peace than in war, and who seem determined to lay waste the
North Carolina Rail Road Co. 25
whole fabric of their own constitutional protection, that they may pour
more gall and venom over the land already desolated by their swords
and their torches.
Let us avoid offending them by our presence, and when a more
propitious conjunction of the planets, which seem sometimes to mad-den
whole nations and peoples, shall restore our quondam brethren
to something like reason and common sense, perhaps they will remem-ber
the Fourth of July, the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of
Rights, the Constitution, Habeas Corpus, and their own security and
With this great trunk line in full operation, a weekly line of steam-ers
could hud continual employment to foreign ports. And, if to
its interests to do so, this powerful corporation could establish the
line in a few years by its own means.
Should you doubt the policy of embarking in the construction of
the Western Extension at this time, consolidate the two Roads al~
ready completed and witness the advantages derived therefrom.
Doubtless the Legislature will grant the desired charter, if a com-mittee
of your body were to ask for it, in your behalf, and your Eas-tex-
n friends of the Atlantic and North Carolina Railroad would leap
for joy at the prospect of so much freight crowding their road.
It will take sometime to get the matter judiciously arranged and
the sooner the subject is agitated, the sooner action will take place
upon it. Very respectfully your ob't servant,
J. M. MOREHEAD.
