lered. leaving tho matter to the Secretary of tho Interior,
ulla:lit be reported.
Mr. Oarfleld declined to withdraw the previous ques
tion, because if the bill was recommitted it could not
bo reached again this session; but toe bill could be
amended in tbo 8p.uu.to so as to malta It simply provide
for a Bureau of Education.
Mr. Dawes expressed bis inability to ace how suob a
ohango could affect tbo efQcioaoy of the bill. The ob
?ectiou to it waa on a broader principle. While bo was
in favor of such a measure generally, he could not sup
port this bill. He sugnestod Ita recommittal, with au?
ihority for the committoo to report at any time.
Mr. Card-Id declined to accede to the suggestion, and
expressed the hopo tbut lils political friends would not
be voting with those ou the Democratic side whose in
stincts lud them to vote against tbe bill.
Mr. Johnson and Mr. Randall, of Pennsylvania, de
sired to bo heard, but the demand for tho previous quea
tion prevented them.
The previous question was seconded.

whloh we weie tent to lay before you.
Our especial aoheme at present is the oonetrui

Tho length of this road Is 104 miles, ot In round num- ni
Bra, for convenience sake, we will call It 200 miles. T
ho condition of tho route, amount of money aubsoribed H
_d expended, Ac, I will oxplaln to you in a moment, b
he original estimated coat of the railroad waa $7,000 .
)0, or about $37,600 per milo. No other road was ever
uilt across the mountains that cost losa than $00,000 '"
or mile, and having a grado of not loss than 70 foot to
io milo. The Bino Rid. o Road will bave a grado going
sat of 46 feet to thi milo, and ftolug weat of 00 feet,
hese figures aro plain truths, and I address you upon t!
tie subject BB business men, or as ono business man ?
odo.vorlng to make a trade with another. I am neither
politician nor publlo speiiker; I am morely a morell ant,
nd desire to deal wltn you as a body, as 1 would with a
Ingle Individual. It would bo vain, if not wicked, to ox- I
oot of you to do anything contrary to your own interests, a
nd i* would be wrong in you to do that for our welfare
rhtoh, BB business men, would not onhanco, even If it
ra? not detrimental, t. your own. It would bo 1mpu- E
ient in me to ask you to do so, unlois I could show you (
bat you were making a good bargain for yourselves. If
fail In convincing yon of this, then I should expect
ou to dismiss the subject from your minda at once. ."
Tho estimated cost of tho undertaking, as I bavo al- ]
cady said, at tho time tho original surveys wore made, ,
r_ $7,600.000, and the grado will be far less than that
it any other railroad ovor constructed over tho moun
alua. In connection with thin, however, you will natu- <
ally aak, "What have your own pooplo dono to war.i the
urtberanc- of tho object ?" I will tell you in a vory few
Nearly thirty yoars ago, when the population of Oin- ;
?Innatl did not exoeed 26,000 persons, yon bnrnod bon
1res and illuminated houses at the prospect of this rail
road communication being established. I am a director '
)f that same corporation for whom you burned bonflrog
ihirty yoars ago, and am here to talk to you on tbo same
Hibjoot. At that timo the proposod lino was calloj the
Cincinnati, Louisville and Sooth Carolina Railroad, and
your city granted the company a charter. At that time
tho State of South Carolina donated to the object
$1,000,000, and Indorsed the bonds of tho company for
$2,000,000, while the people subscribed $1,600,000 more,
and the work was commenced.
The great financial calamities which befol tho whole
country in 1837-88, however, brought tbe enterprise to
an unexpected end. In 1851 the object waa revived,
and work waa again commenced under the auspices of
tbo same corporation. The States of North Carolina,
Tennessee and Georgia came forward at that time, and
granted charters to the inoorpcratora. Tha people of
those SUtes subscribed $1,800,000. Oharloston donated
another $1,000,000, while private subsorlbera through
tho State came forward with $600,000. This made an
aggregate of nearly $7,600,000, whioh tho people of the
Bouth invested in the enterprise, which would have
been carried through to a suocesafQl end, had it not
been for the financial criais of 1837-38, and other di-l
oultiea which could not be overcome. Notwithstanding
the difficult!- to be enoountcrod at that time, however,
tho company succeeded in constructing thirty-four milos
of the road, including masonry, tunneling, _o. Eighty
per cent of this work haa been done In South Carolina,
fifty per oent in Soorgla, and twenty miles have beon
graded In Tennessee. In doing this woik $3,000,000
There ana now remaining uncompleted 164 miles of
the road, and about $4,500.000 i? now required to finish
the work, and the object of our visit is to solicit yent
aid and co-operation in the matter, so that the groat
trank Une, which will connect the South Atlantto coast
with the Ohio may at no distant day be a fixed fact
Cars are now running over 34 miles of this road. The
Une can be completed, aa I have already said, for
$4,600,000, and WB are willing to sjorifloe a great part of
what haa already been done, if yon will only come for
ward and ?salat na
Eon will ask what Interest Cincinnati haa in this mat
ter. I ?Iii tell you. It l8 necessary for the people of the
North, and those of Iba South, to exohauge commodi
ties. We want your manufactures and producta, while
yon want ours. The people of the South are at present
d?pendent on yon for aus te nance and resuscitation. The
expense of shipping these producta by the present chan
nels la very heavy, and the time occupied In the same is
very lengthy. Hy the construction of the railroad
which we propose, yon will be brought 800 miles noaror
the centre of the Uonth, and the cost ol transportation
will be greatly reduced. All that now s?par?tes you
from that point at present ia 164 miles.
What we propose is this: We have already expended
, $3.000,000, atd we havo 164 ___I"?__,_er"_-wegive
you up -?e-_-.ot wEat wo have expended, you will
make an effort to raise the capital required to comple e
the work. We will, of course,.glve yon undivided con
trol oi thlB great trunk Une.
The speaker then referred at considerable length I c
' tho different harbors, means and way of transportation
" _ c., on the South AtlanUo coast.
In conclusion, Mr. Trenholm requested that th<
* Chamber aopomt a committee to take the whole matta)
* under advisement, and to corr-pond with tbo . in tin
South who are interested in the proposed enterprise
3 Thanking the aoiitlemon present for their attention, t_
ll BDO.kor retired.
* President Cook next into-educed Mr. J. P. Reed, o
. Anderson, 8. _., who, in a few brie! remarks, urge?
lj upon the merchants of OlncinnaU the necessity of conoi
\ men_.ng the under)-king at once.
a Mr. O. M. MoGh6e, President of the Knoxville an
l" Kentucky Railroad, being preseDt, reported on the cor
li ditton of that road, as follows:
Oenllemen: The importance of a direct railroad con
'* muntcaUon between the Ohio River and the Southe
9* tern States, waa flrat brought before the people of m
*? Bute In 1830, and the surveys which proved that sue
an enterprise wa s practicable, were commenced the fe
J6 lowing year. That portion of Tonnessee thronghwhlt
auch road must pass, viz., feast Tennessee, was at tin
10 date thinly populated, and, although our people we
ty, fully aware of the great benefit- which would accrue
thom from the completion of a direct railroad route
y j the Ohio and to the AtlanUo, they did not possess t
means to do more than merely initiate this great undi
re" taking. The road which I represent, sixty four miles
n8 length, extending from Knoxville, Tennessee, to t
>v" State Une or Kentuoky, and crossing the Cumberla
Mountains at Elk or Wheeler's Qap, was not d?finit!
located until 1850, and, In the same year, tbo first twet
mile? were placed under contract. Financial difficult
\_m soon cansen the suspension of tho work, but it waa
Burned in 1-9, and in the fall of I860 the iron was 1
upon the first ten miles of the road, and the grading
the next ten miles nearly completed. From that a
until within the last three months nothing wa? done
ward the completion of the road, but, on tho contra
it suffered much from tho leas of Iron taken by milit
'sr- authority to repair otbor roads, from the bunillij
re- bridges by raiders, and from Utter neglect and wau
uu* The above is a brief history of the part which
res- people of East Tennessee have hitherto taken lu
-t warding this enterprise, and I am now here to ass
you that they have already recommon.-ed ti.o work,
,t*a that they are prepared to do their part la the f utnre.
pro- The Knoxville and Kentucky Railroad Company c
mon?-l repairing their road on tho 1st of last moi
and are pushing forward the work as rapidly as pc
*ua* ble. Iron baa boen purchased to repla-? that taken
der, by the military authorities, and by the middle of i
tag month the first ten miles will aga'n be in running or
B" _ large force la engaged in the repairs of the second
'? OI miles, but the work proceeds slowly on account
nar- very heavy slide in a deep out at the commenoemei
this section. I can, however, promise that by the
of January, 1867, the oars will be running to Oin
on the north alda of OUnoh River, t ive u ty milea I
have Knoxville. The piara for the heavy bridge at
lent, point are already completed, and tbe decision upon
join- bids for the snperatrncturo will be made lmmtdl
>wc_ upon my returning to Knoxville,
aub- Tbe next section of nearly eleven miles In len
on is from Clinton to Ooal Creek, will be located next mi
.rest, a portion of the surveys having boen already made,
rhole soon as these are completed, that aecUon will be p
under contract, and according to the estimste o
i of a engine r in charge, will be completed for tho Iron 1
1 and fall of 1867. The preliminary surveys already :
;o the prove that the portion of the Una between Coal I
.ollna and the Htate Une of Kentucky presents no engine
place, dlfflculUoi of moment, although aomo heavy wi
e said found, which would require about eighteen mont!
lntsr. Us completion. At Coal Creek, howevor, we reach
great bausUble beds of Iron and coal, of excellent qu
>y tbe which will at ones give our road a heavy freight
draw ness, and make it a paying road. - Oar local int?r?t
