AUGUSTA AND ITS MANU
We have been led into a train of re
flections on the'subject of Manufactures
in Augusta, by the present of several
bats of excellent soap manufactured by
G. Filz, whose mnufactory is on Greene
street, io the :e;tr of the Richmond Ho.
tel. I t is always to us a source of pleas,
tire to noti6e any improvements in our
city calculated to add to its wealih, and
to enable our- citizns-to spend'their
money at home. The soap sent us is
of fout qualities and prices, and will
compare favorably in both respects with
any similar articles brought to our city
front a distan,ce.

And observant person who will look
-back a fe&years upon the business.of
Augusta, will perceive a.marked change
has taveo place, and -is still progressing.
in regard .o our dependence -on other
sections of the country for -many lead
ing --articles. -
Our people were once wholly depen
dant on the NOrthern and Middle States
for .our, ' Mariy thiosands of barrels of
Canal, and Richmond and Baltimore
Iour, were annuflly brought her#-. Now,
Georgia and -South Carolina lout has
almost entirely monopolized our mar
ket. The time is near at hand when
Augusth -'will- slpily a larg-- extent of
country wit fijur, manufactured within
her -corporate limits, and will open a
-direct trade with all our Atlantic cities
with thn West Indies, and South Amer
ica in the article. . The superiority of
Souh.rt.over Northern ;our in sweet
ness, and.in its being less liable to sour
after bzing kept a given time, is an ad
mitted fact by Alperienced bakers.
Georgia Wheat has been sold in the Ne w
York :mmrkda by the side of the best
Genessee Wheat, and was f.tund to be
heavier by several pounds in the bushels
It wvill noi -be long after the two mills
now in progress of ertection are 'com
pleted, an~d which will tten r'-quire tin
anual supply of half a million of bush
hels of wheat, that August;i four will take
a high rank in the mat kets of the world.
Mlany years ago. it ivas no unusual
sight to.see vessels at the wharves in
Savannah, loaded uith corn shipped f onm
the coasts of Maryland and North Caro
lin. Our people-were not unfregnently
subject io the ruinous prices of $1,00
or $1,25 per hundred for the aritele.
Now, .ne half these pr:ces is considered
high and tens of thousands of sacks o1
Gt'orgia.- raised coin pass annually
throughi our streets to seek distant mar
Y.'ars ago, yarn was a erominent ar
tile in every merchant's .bill from the
North.- Northern fa.toriesrealizedl very
large sales of 'lhe article from their
Southern customers. Now, a., hank of
Nor; hera yarn- is not to be~ found. id'our
city. Bum our factories in this and it
adjacent counties,'supply not..only the
h,me demand, but send yarn to. the
Nrth, to compete with the'Norther,
factories almost at their doors. -Ar tint
Fair of the American Instiue in: INew
York in 1847, the: Curtwr ight Factors
p f Greene county, took a premium foi
hu,best specimen of yarn, The speci
en there exhibited was not'like ithi
J.Nothen competitors, spain for'the oc
2,o~ but was takee at random fromi
I '~ p
consignment on sale in the
. Lowell goods, for she In
ings, which' once crowed the zr
our dry go>ds merchants, are no
almost an obsolete idea, and ous
gia mills mucinore than spply ihe
mand. So with several vatieties of.cOV
ton goods. P
English plains tind Northein linse,
wools. y; 'nce. supplied 'entirely our-,e,
gro winter clothing. -Now the forme
article has disappetired entirely,-andjt
latter has to -coiilpere wit Ifhe .iI
woollen and ciltton cloth of GP:r-i'
mills. Wo venture to say -hat,*
George Sch!ej, of the. Bolltview FaIt
ry;aRid Gov. William -Schley, of 14"
Richmond.Faciory, will contract to s
ply-a better and more durable'artid of
negid cloth at satisfaciory prices, &
can be shownn in thi market as the
duct of a Northern loom.. They im'
theii cloth of 'ood sound citron .nnd
wool, instead of the refuse cotton,.an
the rottpn cow's hair-which.composeIA
materials of so much of the' linsy;
Northern stuff which firids a sale heir'.
We hope that theiimfl is not dis'piit
when these factories can b fify in
plied with Georgia wooi, instead)of hav.
'ing to send, as ttey,do, to New Yo
,r No;thern and Westein wool
1i grown in Sluth A merica.
In the articles of Bagging and Rope
a material change 'is destined to-b
wrought in ihis Iy andStrte. Tiffk
annual prodof' di these, Iwo articles
manufactured4of hemp in iht- United
States, is wort.h'. ' t $3,000,000,of
which Kentucky manufaciures three
fourths. Of the 18,000,000 f yards

r Of-these artici :r o, Dunde
it 1iis cur because they coaul
not pay the duty a'ndstill pay a profit.
B' iiwh sdnld not he,same principle
nowhold good with K-,ntucky bagging
and rope? The cost of tranSortation
fr6m KendCky of these articles-will.'of
itself operate as a - protection to" the
Georgia mantiractures of Cotton 'bag
gi7 arid rope. Already begaging and
rope made of cotton, have beerr intro.
duced.into the Augusta-market-the prd.
ductof a Goirata.factory, and met vith
ready sale. The -field to be occupied
by this bra'nci of enterprize is immense.
Not less than 15,000,000 yards of bag-.
ging are' annually wanted-%nd baling
rope in 'proportion-to say nothing of
the vast vaiiety of. hemp and flax cord
age, rhich might supercede., In this
maiket alone the ambunt annually sold
is immense." We hope to be able in a
short time to speak df-the.large demand
and supply ofcotton bagging and cotton
rope in this city. More thar. this, we
hope in time to speak of these articles
beiig made within our -corporate- limits.
We have the* water power,. and -can
command thef75o;materials. buildines
and every otliler facility.' We should
not here omit the menti-on of. two Iran
Foundries in -ourreity,-that of Taliater
ro & Torbet and that of Neeso & Til
key-both private etntei psizes, and.whol
ly mndependent of the.extynsise foundiy
of the Georgia Rail Road Company.
In thase two -'establishments the.heav
iest ci'stings -of all- patterns and dimen
sions are made promptly to:order--gear
ing for mills and factories, an1i for >all
kinds of maclbine,ry. .They' will 'also
execute all descriptions of work sin iron,
from a bake oven to .a ste9tm enlgine, at
short notice and at fair prices. -We
will not here enumerate 'the long list 'oh
manufactures 'which might be introducedi
in Georgia and in Augusta. Oar aim is
to speak of those. already introduced,
and which-halve-already made.at sensible
impressi6n on our market. A vast, and
almost limirless fi--ld is yet, .unexplored,
but is dpirn to view.. and invites a4he en
