The Empire of Traih-.
Whatever may be our settled policy
with regard to tariffs, it is certain that
the trade between America and Europe
. Is deslinei to go on increasing for
many generations. The improvements
in the arts and industries during the
last thirty years have given to this trade
life "and stability, and so great is it
about to become that nations, sections,
and. individuals through the whole
world will feel its influence. e have
already reached a transition period.
A future of new, of imperative and
' ( unknown wants is lleforc us. Frivo
lous and weak (systems of education
and of thinking must give way before
actual science and facts relating to
I'ommcrcc and mechanics; and our
Legislators and young men, seeking
for a pathway, must awake to the new
conditions if the' would become ac
tors in the immediately approaching
scenes.. In connection with thin for
eign trade is the trade across our con
tinent, which, of itself, already excelV
ihc trade of the whole world in the
most prosperous days of the Roman
Empire Some have supposed that

A commercial centre always reaches
out toward the fountain of supply.
Situated at the head of a deep, beauti
ful bay, and looked by islands, green
hills, and many 6horcs, with scenery
and soil unsurpassed, and in a climate
which gives vigor and health. New
,York can have no superior. Only one
. other city on the globe has similar na
tural advantages ; this is Constantino
ple, the grave of a buried Empire.
' There, on the East, is a mountain re
gion similar to New-England ; beyond
, is one similar to rennsyivanm, JNew
York, and Ohio; on the West is a,
Varied COUntry not loan valualJo tban
Virginia toid Tennessee; andjon the
North are wide districts which even
to-day rival in productions Illinois and
the great North-West. The City of
Brooklyn originated when New-York
i began to reach a hand to the home
trade of New-England, of Europe, and
thejslands of the Ocean. While there
was no West, the East River side was
sthc center of activity. Until the Erie
Canal was opened, the North River
side had no more consequence than
rwhat the trade of New-Jersey and the
..river counties created. When Wes
tern New-York and Ohio could be
reached, the trade gravitated toward
-the Western piers. When tliq Erie,
Hudson River, and Harlem Railroads
were built, Courtlandt become a rival

New-Jersey Central, and in these very
days New-York is going forth on this

'of this city has moved like the bands,
on a dial, and. having nearly made a

Cicago now builds five houses west

mouth of the Missouri, and just below

u Michigan Central Railroad was build
ing, St. Joseph, on the eastern shore
of Lake Michigan, expected to be the
terminus ; everybody suddenly became
rich, and lots were immensely valua
ble. The plan was to have a ferry of
ixt miles across 'the lake to Chicago
but the road ran clear around the lake
to reach a more insignficant town on
the :Western shore. On the lower

plies of fruit and grain, and whatever
is required for human food. On our
whole continent, between the Arctic
and Antarctic Seas, no other region is
so favorable for the sustaining of hu
man existence. It is also in the gold
and silver belt of Colorado, Dakota,
Nevada,' and California. Neither
France, Spain, Italy, Germany nor
Russia has such natural wealth ; and
in all Europe, only England has simi
lar meadows, orchards and mines to
6how. Outside of this belt, we still
have a country richer and more exten
sive than Europe, which modern agri
cultural skill, combined with a patriot
ism that will disregard human com
plexion and parallels of latitude, will
develop, by building lines of trafllc
from the Gulf of Gilifornia and the
City of Mexico to Norfolk. Then,
and then only will lines of deeply laden
ships sail to Havre and Marseilles. In
these passing days, a mighty struggle
is going on to Secure, if it may be, a
mononolv of the rich trPffrowing
of the mountains, and put of the tea
gardens and mulberry plantations of
China and Japan. On one hand, we
see the Harlem, the Hudson River, the
Erie, the Central, the Canadian Grand
Trunk, and the Lake Shore Railroads
striving that they may become consol
idated into one corporation, so as to
secure unbroken transit of passengers
and freight to Chicago, and thence
across the Mississippi, the Missouri,
and the Platte. On the other hand,
are the great Pennsylvania Central
and its extension, the New-Jersey Cen
tral,' with an uninterupted track from
Chicago to the deep liny of New-York,
grasping for the snmo prifte, and in so
doing they relax thoir hitherto rigid
grasp on the" route to Cincinnati, St.
Louis, and Kansas ''-City ; or, what is'
the same, on the South Pacific, so su
perior are the attractions of Omaha.
Not less than $2,00,000,000 are rep
resented in this contest even this sidr
of Iowa. Two points, on these two
rival lines are prominent Pittsburgh,

staple ftforics. and Rochester. -
enduring muns, orcnaras, wheat
fields, and intelligent women and men.
One may be more successful than the
other, but it will le a national calami
ty if they harmonize and form ..one
monopoly. There is enough for both ;
in 20 years there will be more than
both can do.
Our Continental trade, thus throw
ing its shadows before, will demand
millions, of men in all the industries
and arts ; and, in connection, farming
and fru it-grpwing will require a prac

Ono who takes these things in view,
