Excerpt from Historical and Social Sketch of Craven County, So; Ca: From the April No; Of Southern Quarterly Review

Local attachments are strongest among the inhabitants of the country. Those especially whose 'youth has been nurtured among mountains, are bound by a chain, stronger than adamant to the homes of their infancy. The denizen of' a crowded metropolis is vain-glorious, perhaps proud, of his city, but he has no love for it. He forms a very insigni ficant atom in the vast mass of humanity which surrounds him, and he easily transfers his affection to whatsoever por tion of the world may contain his household gods. Not so with the rural citizen or the inhabitant of a village. No throng of uninterested spectators ever torments him with a consciousness of his own littleness. He feels that he is a man of note; that he holds a conspicuous and an important place in society he can calculate the political value of his life. He doubts whether his existence is not necessary to the well-being of the world; and he rewards, with the devo tion of his whole heart, the spot which confers such impor tance upon him.
