EDISTO & ASHLEY CANAL COMPANY.
Letter irom 1 li? Engineer.
ENOINEEU'S OrncE E. & A. CANAI, COMPANT, )
Bumniorvillo, 8. C, April 27, 186C. J
James T. Welsman, Esq., President Edisto and
Ashl-y Rivers Canal Company:
Bin : The surveys for the lino of the Edisto and
Ashley Bivors Canal were completed in October,
1HG-1; hut, as all the most important notes and
papers recording tho roeults were destroyed by
. the conflagration of tho city of Columbia, it be
came necessary, on tho resumption of tliia enter
prise, to porform again all tho instrumental work,
and reproduce tho plana and profiles, which are
now being accomplished.
Tho instructions beforo your enginocr ave, to
connect the Edisto and Aehloy Rivers by a canal of
navigation, suited to the prospective trade of the
richly timbered regions of tho Edisto. The first
object, then, before your engineer, waa tho estab
lishment of a soitablo origin on tho EulBte, and a
suitablo terminus at tho Ashley.
I-OBIOIN ON THE EOIBTO.
Within reasonable limitations, but two points
presented themselves on tho Edisto offering satis
factory advantages-ono a little below Givoham's
Ferry, the othor at Hart's Bluff.
1. The point near Givehams' Forry presents
local features peculiarly favorable. Its bluff high
and abutting on the river for noarly ono milo, ia
the projection of tho main ridgo of the country,
and offers tho safest locality for tho guard-lock,
and from the force with which tho currout is im
pelled to its oast bank, and from tho great depth
of the water, an unfailing supply would be Bocured
without the aid of dam or directing wall. An ar
tificial basin would have to bo formed to rocoivo
all the trudo not prepared to bo admitted into
tho locks. Tho saving BO heavy a construction as
a dam and lift-lock in the river, ?B of tho highest
importance, and adds great weight to the claims
of this point.
2. The point at Hart's Cove also prcaonta local
features peculiarly attractive. Tho cove is a
natural, very cxtousive, and deep basin of easy
and direct accoBB, well sheltored from the winde,
and can be cheaply arranged for wharfage to any
extent the future trade may demand. The bluff
is below the locality Bcleoted for the canal and
guard-lock, and is not high or otherwise impor
tant. The fall in tho rivor from Giveham's Ferry
to this point is about twelve feet; consequently, to
make this point and its route available, will re
quire the construction of a dam, lifting tho water
about six leet, and a lift-lock to accommodate the
trade of the river below.
After mature consideration of the merits of
these two pointa of origin with their connecting
routes, I recommend the Hart's Cove route, not
withstanding the perilous construction of the dam
and lock, for the following reasons:
1. The distance to any favorable terminus be
low the head of tido ia from three to six anda half
mues shorter than any routo that offers, thus
materially reducing the first cost and permanent
ly abating the future coat of repairs.
, 2. It saves the formation of a large artificial
'receiving baBin, offers lower lift-locks, and smaller
quantities of excavation and embankment than
any other line.
3. The line lies wholly in excavation,and is there
fore strongest and best.
4. The location paosea through the lees improv
ed lands of the vicinity, and consequently the cost
Of lands will be greatly lesa, and the requirements
of lateral drainage will alao be materially reduced.
II.-TEBSHND8 OK THE ASHLEY BIVEB.
From the head of tide-water, at Bacon Bridge,
to Wragg Smith's Landing, the bed of the Ashley
Elver is traversed by four ledges of stratified
limestone rook, over which vosaels of four feet
draught can only pass al high tides. Under the most
favorable circumstances, it would he difficult and
costly to remove these obstructions, and quite bo
yond favorable comparison with roaulta if moved.
From Bacon Bridge to Wragg Smith's Landing
the navigation is difficult and Blow, and is per
formed chiefly by oar and polo, because- tho
narrow and tortuous stream ia ahut in between
dense forosts, either entirely sheltered from, or
created here and there into avenues of wind cur
rents of extraordinary force. Near Wragg Smith's
Landing is the "Sugar Loaf Rock," from whioh, to
reach Bacon Bridge, one of the oldest sailors of
the river calla it "dangerous, elow, and hard
work." Below this point the country becomes
open, the river widens, and the winds, whon fa
vorable, perform all the work. There is no bar
below this point which does not offer from eight
to ten feet at low tide, and from thirteen to sixteen
feet at high tide. From the point on the line
where the necessary deflection must be made to
outer Ash'ey anywhere below Bacon Bridge to
DENNETT'S Landing, the length of route would bo
but little less than that to Wragg Smith's. The
vast gain of time in navigation, and the saving
the large expenditure involved in clearing and
keeping the river clear, greatly overbalanco the
heavy earth-work necessary to reach this termi
nus. With all the information before me, I do
not heeitato to rocommend that tho point known
as Wragg Smith's Landing, and below the Sugar
Loaf Rock, be established as the only suitable t?r
minos of tho canal.
To connect these points by the shortest, cheap
est and best linn, is the next subject of investiga
tion. From my earliest examination of tho coun
try I decided upon the propriety of bringing under
striot inslrumoutil comparison tho whole scope
of country which offereQ such favoring aspe?te
as could bo determined only by euch strict investi
gation. The several routes surveyed may be
designated by tho origin and termipus of each,
1. Lino fr m Olvebam'n Ferry, by savanna?, to Ben
nett's Lui id lu -, l8 mil?"?-4200 t- et
9. Line from oivu'min'H Ferry, by aa von na s to Wra/g
Smith's, :9 mile?-1700 fiiot.
3. Line from Oivet.aiu'n F?rr>, by Ashley River, to near
Bacon Brid .0. 14 miles-2680 fc.ot.
i. Line from Hart's Covo, hy savannas, to Bennett's
Landing, Vi mil-a-3500 tent
B. Line from Hart's Cove, by savannas to Wragg
Smith'?, 14 milo*-200 feet
C. Line from Han's Cove, by Aehloy River, to near Ba
con Bridge 12 mili-H-4010 feet.
7. Llue trout Hart'* Cove, by aavannaB, to Middleton'?
Creek, >6 miles-loiofeot.
By fte the most favorable topographical feature?
.' of the couutry, as will be seen from the prollle, oc
cur on tho Hue from Hart's Cove to Wragg Smith's
Landing. After passing the Edisto Rivor Ridgo it
falle into a beautiful savanna, in which it occu
pies the gently descending plain, until it encoun
ters'tho Ashley River Ridgo, about ono and a hall
miles from tho beulet. All the lines to auy point
mast encounter both thoso ridges. The route
eoleoted is nearly a direot line due east from the
Otig?n to the tor uiiuua.
IV.-PLAN OF WOBK.
In the present dis tu r bed state of onr commerce
?j* ?gilicraltare, ana? indeed?' of every industria'
r! jjuren?t; I, bate jound it almost imrjosaible to col
lect statistics to that fall measure of aconraoj
which would inspiro confidence. I have under
taken to establish i ho plan and magnitud o of tbii
work from tbo moat usual cnmmorcial elements of
an agrlonltoral country, and tho cBpccial, peculiar
trado which tho canal may oxpect. No doubt th?
bulk of this trado will bo long confined to lumbor
and tho otbor products of tho forosts, and to a
limited supply of tho heavier product? of agricul
ture in ono direction, and Bait, iron, and tho fer
tilizers in another. By far tho largoBt trado will
bo in ranging timber and lumber, in tho sbapo of
rafts-and thiB canal must accommodato thiB
1. The Canal Rasin.-Tho bottom of the canal
at tho Edisto River will bo fifteen foot abovo low
tido, its piano will descend two and a half inches
to tho mile, and will, thoroforc, bo twelvo foot
ono inch abovo low tido at tho Ashloy River. The
surface will bo fivo feet higher than these levels.
Tho width of water at tho surface will bo forty
feet; at bottom thirty foot; tbo depth will bo five
feet; the width of tow path ton teet. The slopes
of excavation will bo ono foot horizontal, to one
vertical foot; of embankment, ono and a half hori
zontal, to one vertical foot-unless where local
circumstances should require other arrange
2. The Locks.-There will bo required ono guard
lock and gates, and one lift-lock, with two cham
bers, 125 by 20 fcot, to pass tho trado of tho river
below the dam, at the Ediato, and at the Ashley
one lift-lock, with two chambers, 125 by 20 feet,
and ono tidal basin, all built of timber, and so tis
to form the coffer-dame, when they will be substi
tuted by masonry.
8. Waste Weirs and Receiving Vessels-Will bo
constructed of timber, and located suitably to
drainage and to tbo proper flow of wator in tho
4. Aqueducts.-No aqueduct will be required on
tho wholo line.
5. Spoil Ranks.-The material oxcavatod will be
distributed so as to form no obstructions to drain
age, and to yield no waste or wash to the canal,
and to occupy tho smallest possible areas.
6. Receiving Rosins-Will bo formed at themain
highways of tho country, about two hundred foet
in length and ouo hundred feet in breadth.
7. Road and Plantation Rridges.-Five main
road and four plantation bridges will bo requir
ed ; they will span canal and tow-path, and bo
full (12) twelvo foot high. Tho piers and abut
meiits, as well as superstructure, will bo built of
In all parts of tho country and in every branch
of industry, the price of labor has advanced to
Metres hitherto unprecedented. Aleo, tho cost of
all materials and of sub?iBtonco of men and ani
mals, has reached a maximum never before known
in our history. Ia consideration of these facts,
more than ordinary caro has been bestowed upon
this department of our subject, and no item has
been allowed to escapenotico-no elomout of cost
has been doomed unworthy of the most sifting in
Details of Estimated Cost- Length of Work Fourteen Miles.

This statement of cost ia merely ample in every
particular, and unless untoward change in tho cur
rency arise, the work can bo accomplished within
theso figures. It is far botter to bo thus fully ad
vised than bo compelled to urge upon the com
pany still further calls after the work has been
vi.- nr.fiouB.czfl; PROBABLE ANNUAL REVENDE AND
COST OF BEPAIB8.
As above said, the principal trade of the Ganai
will consist of the passage of timber, lumber and
other products of the forest from the upper and
adjacent reaches of the river. In order to form
some idea of the capacity of the country to sus
tain such a work, and establish at Charleston an
immense lumber market, we have but to assume
half the quantity universally stated by the best
informed lumber men of the country as the un
deniable fact. The highest estimate gives as the
area of tho first and second class yellow pine
within easy roach of ei ther bank of the Ediato
from Orangeburg, on the north fork, and from
thirty miles above the forks OB the south, eight
hundred square miles, and the lowest five
hundred squire milos. On every hand are
swamps abounding with oak, hickory, beech, wal
nut, poplar, and other varietios whioh will yield
staves, hoop-poles and lumber for furniture and
various domestic uses, ia quantities only measur
able by tho euergies whioh shall develop them.
The lowest estimate of tho lumber supplied to
Charleston in 1860, states sixty millions square feet
por annum, aud this wes was when BO stimulus
to such trado was offered from abroad, when only
a dangerous aud loog avenue of access to the
city existed. It certainly can bo no exaggeration
to assumo at the least double that quantity, aud
more probably yet, three-fold-say only one hun
dred millions square feet per annum-while all the
other products of the forest will keep paco with
the enormously increasing demand. Naval
stores iu largo abuudanco will also be enlarged
and improved, and will contribute to this work.
Agricultural products aud articles for plantation
uses will add their quota to the general traffic.
With those views I present the following
Estimate of Probable Revenue.
1. First and second class ranging Umber aid
3. Other products of the forest. 10,000 00
3. Turpentine, ronn and naval ?tori? gene
4. Products of agr.culturo and articles of con

VII - OBJECT OF THE CANAL.
1. Tho principal object to bo attained by the
work under consideration, is to add to the trado
of Oharleston another permanent and roliable
element of commerce.
Lun.ber-Tho demand for whioh has been so
prodigiously inoroaeed by tho progress of the past
ten years. To croate and develop this trade, it
is absolutely necessary to opou up a routo to the
city, safe and expeditious. Nature does not offer
this route without enjoining upou it dangers to
life and property quito shocking to the ordinary
. energies of man. Your work will open this aveouo
and tberoby avoid those excessive dangers, and
shorten the distance and the mimi time employed
' in tho trip. The best authorities I have mot-mon
, who have made the trip many times-agree in stat
i ing the distance from Hart's Oove to the oity, by
* the Ediato, POB Pon, Wadraalaw, fltono and Wap
poo Out, to tho Ashley Diver, at three hundred
miles, aud six weeks are required to accomplish
i it. . Although for many ye tra back tho lumbor
1 trade has been receiving its richest accession
- from tbn borders of the Ediato, there yet remains
' forests untouched, which your work will tempt
. into market, and whioh will yiold to the city the
i profita of their teeming abundance. Colloton,
Barnwell, and Orangoburg Districts, willhavo con
tributed their for?ats wealth. It will then become
tho duty of this corporation to extend tho moat
perfect facilities for the transport at ion of tho still
moro enormous supplies of E Igt-flcld and Lexing
ton Districts, by tho skillful improvement of tho
navigation abovo tho forks of tho Edistoand their
2. Collateral to this object, ia another of vast
advautago to your company and of gravo impor
tance to your city-I mean ita water supply. Al
though your engineer entertained no idoa of
adapting the plan of this work lo auch an object,
yet ho did consider and early adviaed tho com
pany of ita valuo.
Ono point ia obvious-a basin of puro water
from the Ediato ia through this channel trans
ferred to a point not moro than twenty miles from
tho city, and this body of wator has a hoad of
seventeen feet above low tide. Should your com
pany over embroco this other object, you would
roquire larger powers and privileges, and con
siderably increased capital.
I would again recall the statement that tho in
terests involved, tho largo public benefits ?9 so
oruo, and the increase of rovenuo to* bo dorivod
from this addition to your plans, may well com
mand your moat serious and favorablo considera
In conclusion, I would reapoctfully call your at
tention to tho map8 and profiles.

fication and satisfaction, and my testimony to the
