SATURDAY MORNING-, NOVEMBER 17,18i?0.
That the hypothcniouso of a rigLt-anglcd triangle
is Bhortcr than Ibu other two ?side- is a fact, wo bo
liovo, that even a tyro in mathematics would bo
slow to disputo. Tho pooplo of Columbia, S. OL,
some fiftoon years ago, inado tho discovery that an
Air Lino Railroad from their city to Augusta would
be of considerable loss distance than tho ronlo*
then and at prosont in uso botweon theso two
points. At once a great oxcitom nt aroso : "Wo
must have an air lino to Hamburg." Public meet
ings woro had, resolutions passod, "books oponed,"
and tho route survoyed. Soon tho enthusiasm
abated, and tho project lay dormant till tho war,
when it received -. now impetus, owing to oircum
stauccs arising from tbo changed state of the
country. The war, however, carne to a closo, and
tho road still unbuilt. Tbo pcoplo of Columbin,
wo aro informed, aro now again asked to do some
thing to further this ontorpriso; and wo have no
doubt thoy would subscribo liberally if they bad
And what aro the advantages lo bo reaped by
Columbia from this continuation of tho Charlotte
Railroad to tho Savannah River? Docs sho ex
pect a largo trade from Augusta ond tho country
west of that city ? Clearly not ; for it is well known
that if any freights ?hall ever bo brought over
that road from Georgia, thoy will pass right on to
Charlotte, leaving Columbia two and a half miles
to tbo North ; and so far from rocoiving any advan
tage from such an oxtension, Columbia coasos
oven to bo a waysido station, for a new town will,
in all probability, spring up in tbo vicinity of tbo
junction. If tho corporators of tho Charlotte
Road can Euccocd in making tho people of Colum
bia build this road, thoy will merit tbo credit of
having done a very clover thing for tbemsolves.
But it may bo said tho road ongbt to bo built, on
account of tho "way business." Wo admit, indeed,
tbat a railroad through any section of country is a
great convenience to tbo peoplo Uving in said
section, and should, therefore, bo built by said
people, unless it is clear that it will provo a profit
able investment, in which case capitalists toke bold
of tbo scbonio and carry it to a successful com
pletion. But tbo Columbia and Hamburg Railroad
can bold out no such inducements. Tbo country
wbicb it travers?e, and tbo adjacont sections
tributary to it, aro, perhaps, tbo poorest parts of
tbo State, and tbo way business, therefore, offers
no profitable return for tho outlay.
The people along tho Uno are unablo to build it.
Thoy look to Columbia and Augusta, the two ter
mini, to carry tbo enterprise through. Columbia, wo
learn, is about to issue now bonds for this purpose.
For tbo sako of tbo unfortunate bolders of ber
stocks of prior date, it is to be hoped that this
project will fail; for evon now, City of Colum
bia stock, if wo aro rightly informod, is at a dis
count of fifty per cent. It requires but little knowl
edge of financo to foresco the effect of a large
now issno of corporation scrip. From fifty it will
rapidly descend to zero. Columbia should bo just

OUR AGRICULTURAL PROSPECTS.
There has been much solicitudo among our
pcoplo as to the prospects of agriculture.
Those na well in linea of business collateral to ag
riculture na those directly engaged in that pur
suit have felt nu interest in the result. It is
generally conceded that ii is the foundation
upon which the superstructure of nil other
Forma of activity and investment must depend.
Ourmerchants, IradcBtnon and manufacturera all
realize (hat they eau have but a madora lu incas*
ure ol' success except in consistence willi nu
abundant und prosperous rural population ; that
cili?s, towns and publie enterprise* have bul n
precarious tenure of existence, even, without
local sources of support; I hal lo have heallh,
vigor und advancement, thoy must be the ex
ponents of agricultural development ; and there
has been the general feeling, therefore, that
lhere could be no assurance ol' the futures of
Ibis mid other citiea of the South, and of the
business connected will, them, without I he ns
Burancc,alao,that there would be Hie conditions
of a successful cultivation of tlie country.
I Of that success there was rooin for doubt, li
seemed to be reasonably certain that plantation
culture, with free negro labor, couM not be
permanently successful. It waa not even cer
tain, in the disturbed condition of affairs .onie
twelve months since, that colored labor could
be made available at all; but conceding that, it
waa not believed that the plantation system, na
it had before exiated, could be sustained. It
was known that it had failed upon the emanci
pation of slaves in the Weat India Islands and
in Guinea, and it. waa known, also, that such a
syslcni had never been successful elsewhere ex
cept with slaves, or with a people, as in India,
forced by starvation to a discipline na severe as
that of which slavery wns susceptible. There
arc many people who have a surplus of pro
ducts for foreign markets, hut it is a surplus
merely-it is that excess of the products of
their several farms not necessary lo their own
support ; but it was not known that there were
any people without a laboring population under
the diaciplinc of slavery or starvation, who
had been successful in the exclusive cultivation
of agricultural products for a foreign market,
while dependent upon the products of a foreign
market for a support; and aa it had come to be
believed that the country was still dependent
on that system, as there was no experience ol
any progress or prosperity without, it wat
gravely doubted whether there was, in fact, n
future of material advancement for the South,
It were too much to say, perhaps, that these
grounds of apprehension have been entirely
removed. It is yet to be doubled whcthci
plantation culture can long be continued
While rice and cotton arc at their present ele
voted priccB, they will absorb, lo a great ex
lent, the available labor of the country. But i
is not to be supposed that these present ele
vatcd prices will continue. Absorbing thi
labor of the country, and drawing other laboi
in, which they must do, these products mus
ultimately transcend the present extraordinarj
demand for them. The production muBt be
come very nearly as great as it waa before th?
war, and when so great, these prioca must nee
essarily diminish. It is probable that the;
will never be bo low as they have been. Th?
costs of culture must be greater, and, befor
reaching their former prices, they will ccaso ti
. be perceptible; but it ia reasonably ccrtaii
i that they will sink to an equilibrium of othc
1 pursuits,-fall to the point at which the enter
prise becomes precarious : to the point at whicl
it cannot offer the inducements to withdraw
. rural population from ita natural tendency t
! farm culture. There is a natural dispoaitio:
among every people, black or white, to indi
viduality of life,-to some separate holding c
their own, admitting more of ease and inde
pcndcncc. From that they will bo withdraw
1 to plantation culture only by extraordinary in
ducements, which that culture must ultimatcl
. I fail to offer; and it ia reasonably certain, there
. fore, that such form of agricultural ac?vit
- cannot, be permanently continued, and to thi
- extent, therefore, the misgivingB of our peopl
" aa to tho prospects of the country have n<
* boen entirely removed.
But in other respects, however, the prospac
is unquestionably bright. For the time, r
_ least, our plantations must be cultivated, an
ii that culturo must bo profitable. Nor in it n<
i, ccBBary to the welfare of a country that
a should be permanently devoted to plantatic
a culture. If that shall absorb the labor, thei
, can, of course, bo none for collateral pursuit
In consiBtcnoo with that thcro arc apt to b

id apprehension if, in consistcnoc with that, the
is shall bo tho reason for believing that our cou
try will retain or attract a more prospero

?jj certainly abundant. There is no country
:u tho world presenting, to a farming populatio
at a surplus product so profitable. Tho labor
