table. All must admit that railroads have a de
veloping.infiuence. My object is to show you
that raising the money to build a road is one
thing, and its proper application another.
That in order to render a railroad useful to a
country, it must be owned by the right sort of
men, driven by the same sort of enterprise and
industry which secured the owners their private

ed in any public euterprrse yet, and I think it
next to an impossibility for her to manage the
Blue Ridge Road if ever so well located and
built, so as to compete successfully with the
great and enterprising companies that have pene
trated the West with their gigantic and well
We already begin to feel the inconvenience of
railraoad competition in drawing trade from
Charleston; much of the wngon trade that used
to come down from Charlotte, in North Caroli
na, has been diverted by the Charlotte Railroad
to the North Carolina Railroad.
The trade of the great West will not be so
easily turned to Charleston as some persons im
agine, the matter cannot be determined, by an
arithmetical calculation of distance. In railroad
operations, the outfit may be uo much more com
plete, and the management so mnch better on
one establishment than another, that it will car
ry commodities double the distance in the same
time and for a less cost.
Recently the Graniteville company sent a hun
dred bales of their domestics to St. Louis, in
li!.souri, by the way of Nashville, Tennessee.
The goods started from Graniteville, one hun
dred and twenty-five miles from Charleston, on
the way to St. Louis. The cost of transit on
these goods amounted to 8640 for one hundred
bales, andi doubt if they would have gone any
cheaper if there had been a railroad from Nash
ville to St. Louis, where the goods went by
steamboat. The same hundred bales of goods
could have been shipped from Charleston to St.
Louis by the way of New York, for $500. To
the same place, by the way of New Orleans,
from Charleston, insurance included, for $275.
From Liverpool to St. Louis, by the way of New
York, 8550. From Liverpool to St. Louis, by
the way of New Orleans, $300. It cost us $40
on those hundred bales of goods to Hamburg,
only ten miles, on the South Carolina Railroad
*to Augusta; for twenty-five dollars the same
has been taken from Charleston to New York;
for fifty dollars I have shipped a similar quantih
of goods from Charleston to New Orleans, and
for S150 they can be taken from New Orleans
to bt. Louis.
These facts will clearly Indicate that we will
have something more to-do than merely build a
raiboad over the mountains. After it is built it
will have to be worked with the greatest possi
ble skill and enterprise, or it will fail to bring
the trade we anticipate.
During the first ten years of the existence of
the Hamburg Railroad, Charleston, instead of
advancing as was expected, actually retrogaded
in popu ation.
In 1846 Charleston was connected with Knox
ville by railroad-the point at which the Blue
Ridge Road is to terminate. Charleston has re
ceived no perceptible advantage from that con
nection. Some say that the Georgia State Road
uses its influence to divert trade to Savannah ;
and heace the necessity or tunneling mountains
in order to be independent of that obstacle. The
truth is, that it is Georgia and Savannah enter
prise that carries the trade to Savannah; for
men will send to the best markets.
Some years ago the people of Nashville made
a strong appenl to Charleston for Aid to build a
railroad from Nashville to Chattanooga, which
was to put Charleston in connection with the
West, and give her unheard of commerce from
the Mississippi. Representations were made to
public meetings, which were quite as extravagant
and out of the way am some of the speeches
which were made on this floor in favor of'the
Blue Ridge. Charleston was to receive millions,
-itf she got nothinig more than drayage and comn
missiens: figures were set forth to show that
enormous quantities of produce was to be
~-drawn from that vast region, embracing th or
four hundred miles around Nashville.'
eles were separately enumerated. There-was
coin by the millions of bushels, wheat, barley,
-baron, rard, pickled pork and beef, live stock,
&c6 It was quite curious to those who were
entertained by those representations to witness
* The city of Charleston responded to the call,
and subscribed 8500,000, which is now worth
but $250,000. The road has been completed,
niow about three years, and I don't suppose that
a bushel of corn lhas ever passed over it from
Nashville to Charleston, and very few bushels
of wheat, drawnu in that direction by the extra
ordinary European war prices. Indeed the
trade of Charleston would not be sensible of
the road ha-via'g been built, except by losing a
vastly valuable grocery trade of all that Chatta
nooga country, in the valley of the Tennessee
river, which trade very suddenly took the back
track through the tunnelled mountains, to Nash
ville, which is supplied by New Orleans.
Charleston had a mania at one time for west
ern extensions, and while in that mood she sub
scribed $250,000 to the Char'eston and Mem
phis road. That road is destined to make a'noth
er heavy draft on the Charleston trade ; it has
already reached North Alabama, and entirely cut
off a valuable cotton trade from Charleston, and
wvhen the road is completed, will be in connection
with the valley roads, and it will be more than
State management can accomplish, with the
best road and machinery ever built, to prevent
Blue Ridge travel and freight frnm taking~ the
back track, and make the road a feeder of the
Memphis and. Virginia roads; that result will
surely follow unless we have a direct atnd inde
pendent road to Charleston.
~ Then how necessary it is fo us to take a com
prehensive view of the subject and not i nvolve
the State in difficeulties-and embarrassments that
may discourage and dampen the ardor of South
Carolina, and preclude for many years to come
from helping useful enterprises.
I trust, 51r. Speaker, that I have done enough
in this State to satisfjy the public mind that I
etm not what is termed in common parlan'ce an
" old fogy," and opposed to the progress of the
I have always been willing to extend a help
ing hand to any useful and practicable work,
and have not been backward in putting my own
shoulder to the wheel of onward improvement.
I am, however, not one of those who regard it
to be so vastly important to extend railroads
through the mountains of South Carolina, as to
expend millions of dollars of public treasure,
and Involve the State in a heavy debt, to accom
plish that object. For I have not the slightest
idea that the profits from such a work would
half pay interest on the cost, even with all the
prosperity and success that the most sanguine
There can be no doubt that the State would
be largely benefited by a central railroad leading
from the seabord to the interior, and before 1
wotuld do anything more for the Blue Ridge, I
would require that company to secure a sub
scription bouna fide, in each "ef the States of
Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee, which
would be ample enough to secure us against
embarrassment in the progrsi of the wvork ; I
would then require Charleston- to furnish indi
vidual subscriptions and corporation aid to a
sufficient amount to secure 3-5 of the capital
neeessary to build and equip a road from Char
lestonu to the North Carolina line.
If Charleston cannot or will n<. raise the
means to join the State in a road which wou'd
redound so much to her advantage, Beaufort may
be taken hold of..and be made the seabord ter
minus. In either case, the project would be
practical, and a paying road, and if began at the
low end, every mile of it which was completed
would, be a renumerating property, so that a
- suspension like the one now likely to occur
..would not necessarily lead to a ruinous loss.
Baltimore commenced in that way with her
.great work, and the Baltimore and Ohio road
was a paj'ing property neairly twenty years be
?fore the mountain euts were made.
Charleston's great-object should now be to
eget a greet central road through the Sltate to the
- .mountains, she has already done much towards
.opening new avenues South and Northr; she
.can and will do still more,and shae mighlt with
great propriety make a debt of 3 or 400,000.000
* more to cut through the barrier that exists bE-I
.*we-en her aiA the un wenntr. which must hel
broken before she can become the emporium' of
the Western trade ; that. is a work that Charles
ton will have to do, and will do at 'some future
day, cost what it may.
