THE BLUE RIDGE RAILROAD.
Below wo present to our readers tbo Report of
iho several CommitIpob of tho City Council of
Charleston, tho Blue Ridge Railroad Company, of
iho Charleston Chamber of Commerco, and
tho Board of Trade of this city, on tho subject of
ihe Blue Ridgo Railroad, and in roforonco to tho
railroad counoctiou with Cincinnati and Louisville
via Knoxvillo. Ou to-morrow we will publish a very
?bio paper on tho subjoot of the Oharloston and
Cincinnati Railroad via French Broad. Both oro
xnattors of great concern to our people, and we
aro euro will bo of iuterost.
Jb the nonorable the Mayor and Aldermen of the
City of Charleston, the Board of Directors of the
Blue liidge Railroad Company, the Chamber of
Commerce of Charleston, and the Board of Trade
The several committees appointed to proceed to
Cincinnati, and to other wostorn cities, to repre
sent tho condition, and advance tbo intorests of
the Bluo Ridgo Railroad, having agreed fr> unito
in rendering an account of thoir mission, ask
leave to submit the following
The several committees, tbougb consulting to
gether, had not adopted any sottlod vieWB, beforo
thoir departure from Charleston. They did not
consider themsolvos authorized to mako any
upeciflo proposals, nor wore they sufficiently iu
iormed of the views entertained in tbo wait, or of
iho works iu progress thoro, to determine tho
character of such as they should mako, bad tboy
boon clothed with that power.
Thoro bad been somo agitation in Cincinnati in
relation to tho connection by railroad with the
South Atlantio States, and subscriptions bad been
made in aid of tho proposed undertaking; but no
specific scheme had been announced.
From Louisvillo, Ky., nothing had been hoard
publicly, though it was not unknown that sho was
urging on with vigor the construction of a branch
of tho Louisvillo and N?6hvillo Railroad, in
ihe diroction of Danville.
In Now ?ork, somo members of tho committee
met Mr. O. M. McGehee, tho enterprising Presi
dent of the Knoxvillo and Kentucky Railroad.
From him they learned that this work was actu
ally under construction, aud that three-fourths of
the capital necessary for its completion had al
ready been secured.
Arguing from these premises, they inferred
that tho people of Cincinnati aud of Louisvillo
would unito their respective roads at Danville,
and starting from that point (which is about
ninety miles from tho Tennessee hue), would
combine their resources for tho construction of a
common trunk to the Tennossoo liue, whero they
would be met by the Knoxville and Kentucky
On their arrival in Cincinnati, however, they
learned that considerations of weight, hiving re
lation to the separate commercial views of the
two oitios, and others arising out of the agricul
tural and mineral resources of the country to be
penetrated by tho respootivo roads, had lod to the
adoption of a policy somewhat different. The
branch road from Louisville, Ky. (called tho
Lebanon brauch), starting from the main trunk
at a point abont thirty miles below Louisville, had
already been carried beyond Danville (passing
six miles south of it, and not through it, as bad
boon expected), and had reached Crab Orchard,
in Lincoln County, distant oighty miles from the
junction. The road is actually in operation to
that point. Cincinnati, on tho other band, had
pushed forward the Covington and Lexington
Road, as far as Nioholasville, and within twenty
four miles in a straight lino of Danville, or within
thirty miles of tho Lebanon Branch Road, whioh
? asses, as before stated, six miles south of
The Louisvillo Road will be carried forward
without interruption to London, iu Carrol County,
southeast of Crab Orchard, and distant from it
about thirty-throe miles.
The OineuinfUi people, on the contrary, contem
Blated tho projection of thoir road, after reaching
lanville, on a line nearly duo south, to intersect
the East Tennessoe and Georgia Railroad at
Philadelphia, Tenn. This exhibits the divergent
views entertained by the two citios.
Your committee are persuaded, however, that
the Cincinnati schorao will not be carried out.
They have the best authority for believing that
thero is no practicable paBs for a railroad through
?he mountains west of Wheeler's Gap. This gap
being nearly due south of London, tho Cincinnati
Road, after reaching Danville, would have to run
nearly parallel with tho Louisville Road, and to pass
alongside of it, through the gap. This alone
would be sufficient to condemn it; but in addition
to this, the Louisville Road will, probably, be at
London, beforo tbey reach the point of intersec
tion with it, near Danville.
At London, Louisville will be practically within
thirty-seven miles of the complete railroad con
nection with Knoxville, for London is but thirty
seven miles from the Tennessee line. By adopt
ing the Louisville road, therefore, as a common
trunk, Cincinnati will at ouce be broneht as near
to Knoxville as Louisville, and avoid beside? the
expense of constructing one hundred and twenty
nulos of road through a mountainous and difficult
The earnest determination of the Louisville
?ieople to accomplish the construction of the road
0 Knoxville, is best exhibited in the resolutions
adopted by their Board of Trade since the de
parture of your committee from their city. A
copy is annexed to this report, and ?b respoctfully
In Knoxville an equal spirit prevails. The
length of this road (from Kuoxvillo to the Ken
tucky line) is sixty-four miles, the cost is esti
mated at $1,750.000, and $1,250,000 of the capital
is already provided. Their first aim will bo to
reaoh the coal deposits on Coal Creek, in Camp
bell County, a distance of about thirty-four miles.
This was, doubtless, the chief incentivo to the un
dertaking; but the President of tho Company, Mr.
HcGehee. a most practicable and reliable man,
pledged himself at tbo meetings hold in Cincin
nati and Louisville, to accomplish bis part of the
Work, and to meet tho Louisvillo Road at tboStato
What will then romain to be done to effect tho
long-sought connection between the Northwest
ana the South Atlantic, will be simply tho comple
tion of the remaining one hundred and sixty-four
miles of the Blue Ridge Railroad. This will then
become a matter of absolute necessity. To leave
it in its proaent unfinished condition, when the
freat and expeusive works, now in progress, shall
ave been oompleted, will bo to bridge the stream,
and stop short of the ehore; to win tho race, and
negleot to tako the prizo.
The chief object in coming to Knoxvillo would
be to reaoh tho South Atlantic seaports; the pie
ference given to Knoxville, in the effort to aocom
filish this purpose, must havo been determined by
he superiority of the advantages offered by the
Blue Ridge Railroad for surmounting tho inter
vening mountain barrier. The choico, your com
mittee are moro persuaded than ever, bas been
The Blue Ridge Railroad is one hundred and
ninety-eight miles in length; the grade eastward
is forty-five fust; westward, sixty feet. Thirty
four miles bave been built substantially and com
pletely, and are now in operation. One hundred
and sixty-four miles only remain; of this, a largo
part of the heaviest and most costly work has
also been done?in tunnelling, bridge masonry,
and squaro drains or culverts. Twenty miles uf
the grading south of Knoxvillo has boon comple
ted, and also the most costly and difficult portion
of tho stone abutments, and piers for bridging tho
Holston. Three millions of dollars have been ex
endod on thene works, of whioh only 1250,000 was
orrowod, under the mortgage, authorized by the
Legislature. Of ih? sum invested by tho stock
holders (about 12,750,000), the company are will
ing to saci illee a considerable portion, by a re
daction of thwir Hharee. or by tho issue of a pre
form! stock, holding their own in abeyance.
In tbe estimation of your committee thfs is a
great and substantial advantage to offer to thoso
who, having a common interest with ourselves,
may be disposed o furnish the capital for its com
pletion. The sum required is about $4,500,000,
tho original CHiimiito for tho whole work having
beon $7,500,000?or this sum ($4,600 000) $500.000
Will be obtained from the State of Tennessee, as
tho proportion of Stato aid to whioh the road in
Tennosseo ie entitled, under tho general law of
that Btato to aid the construction of railroad?.
There aro unissued $2.250,000 of tbo company's
bonds, scoured by a first mortgago of all its
proporty in tbo sovoral States (saving en much of
tho Tennesaoo Road as may be required to secure
that Btato for its loan as abovo stated). Thcao
would,doubtless, becomo available, in tho progress
of tbo work, leaving not moro than $2,000,000 to
$2,500,000 to be raised by subscriptions to tho
capital sto k.
This amount having a preforonco of dividends,
would, apparently, bo a safo in vestment; it can
hardly bo doubted that bo great a thoroughfare
would havo business onoui;b to pay *bo interest
on 4-7ths of the cost, namely, on $1,760,000 -par
ticularly whon it is conwdcrod that this snm of
$1,750,000 does not amount to $'?5,000 per mile of
road, and that other work? of a similar char
acter havo cost $00,000 to $70,000 por mile.
Tbo extension or tho Libanon Branch of tho
Louisville Railroad boing determined upon, and
on grounda entirely local, and tho construction of
the Kuoxvillo and Kentucky Railroad being now
equally a matter of cortair.lv. it would bo un
reasonable to suppose that when thoso works are
accomplished, Louisvillo and Kuoxvillo will con?
sont to stop there, and boing brought within
thirty-seven miles of onoh oilier, continue to bo
soparatod by that space. No oue can doubt that
tho remaining thirty-seven miles would soon be
built, even if the Blue Ridge Railroad had no ex
So Cinciunati boing, as has boon already said,
commit tod to the extension of tbo Lexington Road
to Danville (from local considerations also), may
be regarded as equally implicated in the progross
of the events that are leading irresistibly to the
early connection of both cities with Knoxville.
The connection being then regarded as certain,
let us now comparo tho advantages oflorod by tho
two rival routes for reaching the South Atlantic
ports?that by Cumberland Gap and tho French
Rroad, and that by the Rabuu Gap or Blue Ridge
Railroad. Let the question bo first cousidorcel in
relation to Cincinnati.
In tho proeocution of the enterprise, tho point
of departure for her would be Paris, this boing
the easternmost point on the Lexington Railroad.
The distance from PariB to Cumberland Gap, iu a
straight line, is.120 miles.
From Cumberland Gap to Ashovillo,
N. C.100 miles.
From Aehevillo to Spar tan burg, N. C-100 miles.
Thus it is soon that it would require tbo con
struction of three hundred and twenty miles of
new road to accomplish by way of Cumberland
Gap tho great object in viow.
Tho cost, at a moderate estimate, would not be
loss than $12,000,000. Tho trade of Qoorgia, too,
would bo lost to the road, for it would be uoarly
or quite as short for her to carry on her trafile,
au now, by way of Knoxville and Dal ton.
By way of Rabuu Gap, on tho other hand, thore
are only one hundred and sixty-four miles of new
road to bo constructed, aud of this a great deal
of the heaviest work has been doro in dotachod
sections, so that tho cost of completing it will not
exceed $4.500,000, and by this route tho whole in
terior aud seaboard of Georgia aro rondored as
accessible, and brought us near, as thoso of South
It will be observed, too, that in computing dis
tances we havo given the Cumberland Gap route
the benefit of air lines as far as Asheville, N. C;
whereas, in tbo caso of tho Rabun Gap or Blue
Ridge road, it is tho actual length of tho located
line that is given.
In the case of Louisville, a deduction of seventy
miles will have to bo made in tho length of road
to Cumberland Gap. Whon tho Lebanon exten
sion reaches London, tho distance then to tho
Gap will be only fifty miles, instead of one hun
dred and twonty, as it is in the case of Cincinnati
and Paris. But this would be of value only in
tho event that Cincinnati should abandon tho
Paris project, and consent to make her connec
tion by way of Danville and London. In tho op
posite view?that is, if she persisted in tho con
struction of an independent road from Paris?
these fifty miles would, on the contrary, have to
be added to the length of new road, of which the
construction would be necessary to give tho two
cities tho connection sought?that is, three hun
dred and seventy miles by way of Cumberland
Gap, against ono hundred and sixty-four miles by
way of Rabun Gap and the Blue Ridge road. It
appears to your committee that these plain ami
practical considerations forever set at rest every
effort to uusettlo tho oonviction, now they believe
almost universally entertained, that tbo Blue
Ridge road possesses, in every aspect of tho case,
advantages that exclude all rivalry in its claims
upon tho two groat sections of country that havo
so Ion .been struggling for a closer union.
It must, nevertheless, be admitted that the
source from whence the c-pital f >r its completion
is to bo drawn, remains still unrevealed.
The people of Cinciunati, influenced by the
same discouraging experience that has every
where attended the first contributions for tbo con
struction of new railroads, are averse from mak
ing individual subscriptions; and by tho Constitu
tion of Ohio tho city of Cincinnati is prohibited
from contributing to euch enterprises. Impelled,
however, by an honorable ambition to koop pace
with the general progress, aud fully to develop
tho great natural advantages of their city, they
aro looking, with an intelligent eye, to a direct
Southern connection, and are actually engaged in
raising by Bubscription a fund of $1,000,000 (uow
nearly completed) to be offered as a bonus to any
company that may complete, and put in opera
tion, the road they shall indicate.
It is not yet decided to what particular work
this fund shall be devoted; neither can it be deem
ed very available, encumbered as it is with the
condition that the paymont shall be made only
after the road shall havo been completed and put
Your committee took tho liberty of recommend
ing that tho public-spirited subscribers to this
fund should appoint a committee of their own
number to determino wbore it may he bestowed,
with tho greatest advantage for the welfare of
Unless reasons of a local character should ren
der it essential to give it in aid of the Covington
and Lexiugton Road, your committee oannot per
ceive bow it can be better applied for the interests
of Cincinnati, than in hastening the completion of
tbe Blue Ridge Railroad.
An additional motive for giving it this direction,
exists in the natural rivalry between the two cities
of Louisvillo and Cincinnati. It may be consid
ered certain, from the existing posture of affairs,
that Cincinnati will find it to her ? Intercut
to conduct her trafilo with Knoxville over tbe
Louisville and Kentucky or Lebanon Branch
Ko ad. Tho reasons for this opinion have already
boon given in another placo.
If, in addition to this advantage, Louisville
should also bo the first to avail herself of the
groat And predominating power to arise out of
tho possession or control of tho Blue Ridge Rail
road, Cincinnati will be placed at great and irre
trievable disadvantage in the commerce of tho
West, with the South Atlantic States. These are
considerations that cannot be overlook oil or disre
garded with impunity. Your committee are of
opinion that the interest of both cities would bo
best consulted by the union of their strength and
resources for the achievement of tho common
The work would thus bo moro speedily accom
plished, aud its early completion is cssontial to
secure to them the full and just roturas of their
If tbo Blue Ridge Railroad could be carried on
simultaneously with the w irka now in progress in
Kentucky and Tennessee, the completion of tho
soveral parts of tho groat chain could ho mado
coincident, und tho full benefit of a perfect sys
tem bo immediately secured. But if the resump
tion of work on tbe Blue Ridge Road is to bo de
ferred until tho Kentucky and Tounessoo Rail
roads shall have been completed, tho disjointed
parts will, necessarily, possess far lees vitality
In viow of all that has boon said, your commit
tee are of opinion that it is essuntial to impart
greater efficiency and dirootuees to the ofl'irt to
secure the capital so urgently required. To this
? nd they would respectfully rooommeid that tho
Hoard of Directors be authorized and empowered,
by a resolution of tho stockholders, to make snob

invested, as may ho fouud essential to accomplish
the proposod object. They recommend to the

suggestion their favorable consideration, and to
