Cincinnati ana Charleston Railroad,
In view of tho great intorcst which is now be
ing taken in having a communication by railroad
botweou tho Northwest and tho Atlantic seaboard,
and on account of tho urgent claims advancod by
the friends of rival routos, wo would respectfully
suggest to tho friends of tho various routes, and
especially to tho citizens of Cincinnati, Kentucky,
Tonnossoo, North and South Carolina, that a Con
vention bo called, composed of delegates from
Cincinnati and tho States named. Tho Con
vention to meot this summer or fall, at
somo convenient place?say Morristown, Knox
ville, or Ashvillo?to consider the merits of tho
various routoB prosposed; decido thereon, and see
what may bo dono in tho promues. Lot Cin
cinnati namo tho place and timo.
If it bo thought expedient, a corps of engineers,
in tho meantime, might mako a rccounoissanco of
the diff?rant routes, or an examination of the sur
veys thereof, which havo already bcou .i.ade, so
aa to report to the proposod Convention:.
It is of tho groatest importance to the whole
country, and especially to thoso who may be in
terested as stockholders, that tho contemplated
railway Bhoulil havo the beat possible location,
o, tho most direct route, tho cheapest line, and
should pass through a country capablo of produ
cing tho greatest amount of business. Other
things being equal, any unprejudiced mind
would decido at ouco in favor of such a proposi
tion as self-evident. Directness of route is now
the leading idoa with English railway builders,
and its great importance is being recoguized by
our own pqpple.
Tlieso advantages wo claim for tho route ex
tending from Cincinnati to Charleston, S.O., via
Cumberland Gap, Morristown, Tenu., Paint Bock,
Ashvillo, No. Ca., Spartanburg, and Columbia,
South Carolina, which we submit, havo boon fully
proved, are unanswered and unanswerable, by the
,abie report of Dr, M. ?arrigei?, P?crctary and
Treaaurer of Cincinnati, Cumberland Gap and
Charleston Railroad, lately published in tho Cin
Tho only argument against this report whiob
we have soon, was used by the Hon. Geoboe A.
Tbenholm ' before the Charleston Board of Trade,
at which ho is represented to havo said: "Now, as
regards the Bpartanburg extension, they have
not got a charter to enter the State of Virginia,
and they cannot reach Cumberland Gap, which is
* in Virginia, without one; and it is out of reason to
suppose that in the prcsont condition of the pub
lic mind?it is contrary to any reasonable conjec
ture, that Virginia will grant a charter for a rail
road which is to tap her wholo system of local
and State roads, and is calculated to divert her
commerce to the Bupport of another State. It is
true they have a charter from the State of North
Carolina, but such is the jealousy of that Stato in
regard to itu own seaports, and the value of its
own costly system of railroads, that in that chartor
they have reserved to themselves tho right, when
this railroad shall have boen completed by pri
vate capital, to indemnify the corporators and
take tho road for the benefit of tho State of North
r Tho distinguished champion of tho Blue Bidgo
route must think that causo strong indeed,
against which be urges no better arguments than
these. But as to the fact, Cumberland Gap is
not exclusively iu tho Stato of Virginia; tho prin
cipal part cf it is in tho States of Tennessee and
Kentucky. The one or two hundred yards of
Virginia passed through here, is a tunnel which
commences in Tennessee and terminates in Ken
tucky, which, we aro well informed, belongs to
ono individual, who is a stockholder, and has
given the right of way to this projected line. Be
sides, if his facts were true, it is difficult to com
prehend how the passago of a road through this
remote, mountainous, and very small slip of Vir
ginia, would so derango her "whole system of lo
cal and State roads, and divort her commerce to
A the support ol another State." Her whole system
of railroads would still be left free and open
and with the contemplated road finished, she
would save in distance from Cincinnati to Nor
folk via Cumberland Gap, Morristown and Bris
tol, sixty-four miloa over the lino from Cincinnati
to Norfolk ??a Knoxville. And in case tho Virgi
nia and Kentucky Bailroad should be extended
from Bristol to Cumberland Gap, as is content
plated, she would save in distance from Cincin
nati to Norfolk one hundred and seven miles over
the lino via Danville and Knoxville.
Wo havo a bettor opinion of tho liberality and
generosity of tbe Old Dominion, even if it were
necossary to appeal to her. It is rather absurd
to presumo that a company of stockholders would
bo so foolish as to undertake to build a railroad
without first having obtained an indisputable
right to build; and yet, tho Cincinnati, Cumber
land Gap, and Charleston Bailroad was being suc
cessfully and rapidly built when tho war broke
out. The Hon. gentleman admits the prospoct of
more business for the "Spartauburg extension,*'
than wo bad supposed ho was willing to acknowl
edge. Now, as to his other ad caplandum argu
ment?Suppose tho road completed from Cincin
? nati or Morristown to Ashvillo, N. O., and tho
Stato of North Carolina should concludo to take
that portion lying between Ashville and the State
line, near Paint Iiock (and her reservation only
, applies to this portion), indemnifying tho corpo
rators?what dots it amount to? Simply to a
change of stockholders and by full compensation.
Ho would lie-surprised if many of tho stockhold
ers of the Bine Ridge Road would not sell their
stook upon terms much moro favorable to the
purchaser. But, admitting that tho Stato of
North Carolina should tatio this portion of the
, road, it would bo her interest to bring to Ash
villo as much froight and as many passengers as
, possible. Then would commence tho competition
between tho lines running from this point to Nor
folk, Va., Beauf irt and Wilmington, N. O, and
?. Charleston, 8. O. t?o much the bettor for the citi
zens of Ohio, Kentucky, and Tcnnesseo.
Tho road running this line would roach Charles
ton, through tbe centro of South Carolina, in al
most an air lino, passing by Columbia, where
thero is a water powor"8tiporior to Lowell. There
^ would bo no diversion from this liuo, at loast from
Asimilo, N. O., south. But suppose tho Blue
Bidgo Boad completed to Anderson, what guaran
tee is there that the Savannah Valley Railroad, or
the road to Port Boyal, will not bo built, tbu? di
verting the road and business from tho centre ol
the btatc, and adding immensely to the coBt ol
this already oxponsivo lino ? With tho road com
pleted to ABhvillo, tho great products of the West
would sock tho shortest routo to a seaport, whioh
is Charleston, B. O., whero, in tho languago of Mr.
Memminokh, "thero is no competition, tho market
is clear, and tho proximity of the soa?and of tho
West Indies particularly?furnishes an open door
to tho produce which will como bore for sale or
shipment." It would thus paBS through difforont
parallels of latitude, and bring produots to bo ex
changed for those of a different kind.
Tho Legislature of ?South Carolina, in 1833, ap
pointed tho lamontod Hayne, AnnAM Bi.andino,
Governor Noble, aud others, Commissioners "to
causo examinations, surveys, and estimates to bo
mado for a railroad botweon Charleston and Cin
cinnati." They applied to the then Secretary of
War and obtained tho services of a distinguish
ed corps of United ^States Topographical Engi
neers. The engineors reported to tho convention
which mot at Knoxville, TonnosBOO, July 4, 1830,
composed of 330 delogatos from nino different
States, to wit?Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Tonnos
boc, Virginia, Alabama, North Carolina, South
Carolina and Georgia. Tho committeo to propare
business, say, in rolation to this roport, that it ?b
"found to bo entitled to ontiro con?denco, na woll
on account of tho ablo manner in which it has
beon drawn up, as tho skill and accuracy of tho on
irineers who havo assisted in making the survoys.
"From this report it will appear that within tho
chartered limits of the company thoro is no prac
ticable pass through tho Alloghany Mountains,
but the valley of tho French Broad Biver; and,
most fortunately for tho undertaking, tho gonoral
direction of this river within tho mountain region
coincides with a straight line, drawn from
Charleston to tho branching point in Kentucky;
and what recommends it moro strongly for adop
tion, is the fact that its head-waters rise in a level
plain, which begins at the summit of tho Blue
Ridgo aud Btrotchos to tho northwest in an opon
valley, without any desceut perceptible to tho eye
for 30 miles, to a short diatanoe bolow Ashvillo, in
North Carolina, and for tho noxt 00 miles it has a
very regular descent to the point whero it issues
from the mountains; which descent in tho wholo
distance averages only 13 feet to the mile, and in
only one mile is there a descent of 45 feet. This
committee have no hesitation, therefore, in de
claring that this must bo adopted as a part of tho
line of our road, and that it is perfectly practica
This report was "unanimously agreed to by tho
whole Convention, and ordered to be published to
the world in their name and behalf." At a subse
quent meeting, tho stockholders camo unani
mously to tho conclusion, after patient investiga
tion, that the passage of the Blue Bidge at the
Butt Mountain Gap, via the French Broad River,
"was decidedly superior to every other to be
found within the limits of their charter, or indeed"
in tho wholo extent of tho mountain ranges di
viding the A'lantic from the Western States."
McNeill and Williaus, distinguished topo
graphical engineers, who "were almost continu
ally occupied during an entire period of four
years" in survoying this mountain region, decided
in favor of its superiority ovor all others.
Governor Hayne, in his address before tho
Knoxvillo Convention, says: "Now we would ask
whether the mero existonco of such a passage
through the mountains, in the general direction of
a line drawn from Charleston through the centre
ol South Carolina, and loading nearly in a straight
course across an interesting and valuable portion
of North Carolina, and through the very centre of
East Tennessee to Lexington, and from thence to
the Ohio River, does not mark out, as with the
unerring hand of nature, this as tho groat channel
of communication betweon tho South and tho
West." Thoro is a difference in distance of 91
miles iu favor of the "Spartanburg extension" via
French Broad and Cumberland Gap to Cincinnati
over tho Blue Ridge route via Knoxville.
Tho difference iu cost is proportionately greater,
and according to the roport of Dr. M. Camiujek
it is shown that the cost of tho Blue Bidgo and
Knoxville and Kentucky Roads to bo $-4,830,027.81
more, or over double tbe cost of the Cincinnati,
Cumberland Gap and Charleston, and the Green
ville and French Broad Railroads, extending from
Cumberland Gap to Spartanburg O. H.
The total amount of unfinished road is greater
on the former than tho latter by forty-six miles.
With Buch superior advantages in favor of the
French Broad route, the inquiry very naturally
occurs to every one, how tho Bluo Bidge road ob
tained euch prominence. "In 1852 there was a
vexatious controversy between the South Carolina
Railroad Company and the City Council of Augus
ta, Georgia, about the right of the formor to
establish a depot within the corporate limits of
the latter." It was suggested to build a railroad
from Anderson to Knoxville via Rabun Gap, to
avoid supposed Unjust discriminations. An engt*
neer was appointed, who made a reconnoiesance
of ?the route. In his report ho says : "Tho dis
tance of tho new road projected will bo about ono
hundred and fifty miles?forty-eight miles lying
iu South Carolina, twenty-live miles in Georgia,
fifty miles in North Carolina, and twenty-seven
miles in Tennessee. These distances may not be
exactly apportioned ; tho total, however, can be
reiicd on. I have no hesitation in estimating that
(1,750,000 will build this road in a permanent
form, with a rail weighing not less than flfty-ilvo
pound;, por yard ; but it will bo entirely safe to
With this estimate, '.ho city of Charleston
entered heartily into tho onlerpriBO, and subscri
bed a million of dollars. Extraordinary influ
ences were brought to bear upon tho Legisla
ture, and tho State was committed to tho enter
prise in tho amount of several millions.
When wo consider the great exertions which
havo been mado to induce corporations aud
States to subscribo, tho magnitude of tho onter
prido, wo are aurprisod at the comparatively
small amount of individual subscriptions.
According to the report of the President of the
Dluo Ridge Bailroad, mado to tho Legislature of
South Carolina in 1803, tho amount subsoribod by
Contracts for work done. 177,200.00
Total kngtli of road constructed 33
miles, and total cost of road.$2,024,119 00
According to tho report of Major 11. ?. McOal
la, Chief Engineor of Cincinnati, Cumberland
Gap and Charleston Railroad, mado Augnst, 18o0,
tho enliro coat of tho road, exclusivo of equip
ment, from Spartanburg 0. H.; 8. O., to Morris
town, on tho East Tonnesaeo aud Virginia Bail
road, a distance of 161 miles, it? $2,735,090.01, and
from -i|irtanbiirg C. H. to Paint Rook, a distanco
of 117 miles, $2,213,102 94. Tho State having al
i ready tpent two millions and a half of dollars on
tho blue Ridgo Road, decided not to assist the?
Irench Broad Road, but to "husband her re
sources/' Th? Committee on Railroads (not a
' corps of engineers) reported that "the estimates
! of the French Broad Railroad, through the moun
tains, aro eo muc'.i under tho coste of all otbor
railroads ovor the samo rango of mountains, that
your Committco cannot regard thorn rus altogether
aocurato, and beliovo that, should tho work over
bo completed, thoy will fall far short of tho coat."
Yft this samoraugo of mountainu can ho passed
by this lino of road without a singlo tunuol.
A committco of fiftcon gentlemen of ampio
moans had alroaily agrood in writing to bttlld tho
road from Spnrtanbnrg O. II. to Aehvillo, N. C.
entire, at tho estimates mudo by Major McCalla,
and nccorAing to tho plans and specifications of
tho company'? cnginuor, und tak? one-eighth of
tho amount iu tho stock of tho company,
and three-eighths iu well secured bonds,
and ono-half in cash. Thoy also proposed
to build that pirt north of Asimilo to
Paint Rock upon tno samo terms. Two of this
committco, with ono other gentleman, were sub
sequently awarded tho contract to build tho road
from Morriston, Tenu., to Paint Rod. -14.J miles.
Thoy took tho ontiro road at tho estimates of
Major McOalla, gavo bond and security, and
with a forco of 400 hands woro progressing satis
factorily to all parties, when they wore forced to
quit by the ovouta of tho lato war.
Wo would bo sorry, and would not intentionally
do (ho Bluo Rid/Jo Road any injustice Wo would
bo glad to seo each road built; for wo think thoro
would bo bu8iii08s eufliciont to sustain both. Yet
wo must do justico to our own route, and if "the
comparison should soem invidious," tho fault is
not our.", but of natural causes. In conclusion,
wo contend that wo havo an uuinterruptcd chor
tercd lino from 8partanburg O. H. to Cincinnati;
that from Ciucinnati via this route to Charleston,
So. Ca., is noaror by many miles than by any other
route to tho eamo seaport, or to any other soa
port; that it is cheaper by sovoral millions; that it
passes tho whole way throtigh a country capable
of affording much business, and right on tho
banks of a rivor ^tho French Broad), just be
tween tho provision and cotton growing regions,
which can afford power sufficient to do all tho
manufacturing required by the contiguous Btates.
We believe that nature has worked out this route
as tho way in which tho South and tho great
Northwest aro to be broug1 t together In social
and ImeineBB intercourse. '?ho way is so plain
that, soouer or later, capitalists will take hold of
it and carry it to a successful completion and a
prosperous future. It is for this generation to
docido whether wo are to fold our hands and lose
tho golden fruits, or move forward and build up
an enterprise which will not only bo a blessing to
us but to futuro generations.

Tin- Crops. &c?
[From the Qalveiton News Price Current.]
Tho weather still continues favorable for orops,
and the prospects have decidedly improved. The
corn crop, in most cases, is said to bo far above
tho average. H'lio heavy rains which generally
damaged tho cotton were favorable to the oorn.
Tho latter was too far advanced to be much in
jured by the grass, while tho formor was nearly
drowned by the water and chokod by tho grass. A
gcutloman direct from Dallas informs ns that
though the wheat crop was full an average one,
yot tho hoavy rains coming about the time it was
ma'uring, cau?ed|an appearance of rust upon the
stalk, which prevented the heads from tilling well,
and tho yield was thereby considerably reduced.
But for this the yield would have boon unusually
heavy. It is believed, however, that Un-ru will bo
considerable flour to sparo for tbe lower couuiies
of tho ritato, provided the cost of transportation
is not so high as to ptwvont it from coming in
competition with flour from abroad.
Of cotton we might about as well say nothing,
for this crop is subject to so many contingencies
that the fiual crop can seldom bo safety judged of
by present appearances. Our account-? have, how
evert become decidedly more favorablo since our
last issue of this circular. Thn previous reports
of the cotrwn worm or caterpillar have, in some
instances, been contrsdictod, and as the dry
-leather continues, thoro is some ground to hope
that tho worm may not do materia? damage. It
is not, however, yet late enough to expect the
worm, and a week or two, with a change of
weather, will bo sufficknt to canse a total change
either for the hotter or the worse. Our country
papors jtill occasionally speak of tho worm mik
ing its ?ppoarance, but it does not appear ns yet
to have done material demise anywhere. If the
worm dors not provo matomlly dostruoiivo, und
the weather continues favorable, Texas will pro
bably make one-half of. hor usual crop, or about
200,000 bales. This i.-?, however, tho outside
figuro. The more common cbtim ?to by our mer
chants is about 175,()0u balo-', and this will proba
bly oxcoed the crop of any other 8tato. (
