all such reports were exaggerations of the

FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 26, 1869.
A Hoad to the Pacific.
The New York Tribune devotes a leading
artiole to a description of the route trav?
ersed by the Memphis, El Paso and Pacific
' Railroad, and of the resources and charac?
ter of the country through which it will
pass. This is the road in favor of which
L resolutions have been adopted by the
i Legislature of the State.
We do not know what may be the personal
' interests of the members of Congress from
" South Carolina, and whether the Northern
or the Southern route, or either, will have
their support; but we are sure that no
, measure can be found whose adoption by
Congress will be more advantageous to tho
I whole South and to this State than the rsil
1 road of which we speak. Apart from the
1 intrinsic merits of the project, which alone
should secure its success, it must be re
L membered that the South has a right to de?
mand some consideration at the hands of
r Congress. This consideration wo may
claim, not as a matter of love or favor, but
' because Southern cotton is the main prop
' of the whole financial system of the United
States; because the cotton bale alone stands
between the United States and something
i very like bankruptcy. We may not be in
: a position to obtain at this moment all that
we require, and content ourselves now with
1 urging Congress to pass the bill for the
? construction of the Memphis, El Paso and
1 Pacific Railroad-which strikes tho Pacific
, coast at about the same latitude as Charles
; ton or r'avatmah <m the Atlantic.
Tho Tribune says :
[ "A Pacifie railway that asks no money from
. Congress, that oucountora no great mountains
i in its route, and is liable to no interruptions
from snows, is a thing so different from our
previous experiences in that lino as to de
I serve thc most respectful consideration. That
. any practical Pacific railway deserves what?
ever encouragement we can afford is gonarally
believed. That tho success of thi3 one would
bo of srocial value in opening up vast tracts of
fertile land, not less than in knitting together
remote regions of the republic, seems to us
plain. And when it comes before Congress,
asking little beyond the continuation of its old
' privileges and tho right of way, the advantages
to be gained so far outweigh what is asked in
rnti- -~ *~ aBflSMatatj laaai--a?casafaX **.?
"The proposed road is no new thing. It was
? incorporated by tho State of T?xss prior to
1861, and endowed with eight and one-third
i million acres of land. A hundred and filly
i miles of it were under contract before the wai;
1 sixty-five miles were ready for the rails; for
fifty miles the iron had been purchased; a mil?
lion and a half in all had been expended, wben
the war stopped everything at the South but
raising food and fighting. Now it is proposed
to Bave that million and a half, resume opera
rations as soon as Congress will assure the
right of way, and press forward the road. Its
comparatively short route hes along the south?
ern border of the ceJein half of our territo
I ry-stretching from the northeast corner of
Texas, through the whole breadth of that em?
pire in itself, resting midway between its op?
posite termini at El Paso, near the northwest
i ern corner of Texas, on the Rio Grande de'
Norte, and thence finding its easy passage
through Southern Arizona and California to
the bay of San Diego. It thus strikes the
Pacific coast at about the same latitude as
Charleston or Savannah on the Atlantic, and
connects it with the Red River and tho Missis?
sippi by a route that opens the richest of our
cotton growing regions, and that never leaves
a climate where flowers can bo found growing
in every month in the yoar.
"A little over one-half of the entire length of
the road bes within the State of Texas. At
Jefferson, the head of navigation on the Red
River, it connects through Shreveport and
Vicksburg, and through Little Rock and Mem?
phis, with our wholo railroad system. Froni
Jefferson to El Paso, on the westside of Texas,
the length of its route is eight hundred miles;
from El Paso through Arizona to the Pacific is
only six hundred and fifty more. Tho first half
of this route is through a country of surprising
fertility. Those rich plains of Northern Texas
are capable of putting 50,000,000 bushels of
wheat into market a month ahead of tho
supply from any other State ia tho Union, or
of producing four timos tho amount of cotton
hitherto furnished by the wholo cotton grow?
ing region of the United States. Immense
beds of coal, iron and copper are found along
this part of tho lino, and lead and silver of
great riobnoss are coming to light in the west?
ern counties. El Paso, which is to ba the mid?
way station on the line, is the objoctive point for
tho Mexican railroads already chartered, and
is destined to bo an important interior city.
From El Paso, through a strip of New Mexico
and Arizona to Fort Yuma, at thc mouth of the
Gila, the road keeps for the whole distance
within thc ordinary working grade of oighty
feet, and within only a hundred feet when it
passes the summit elovatioas, for a short dis?
tance, between Fort Yuma and San Diego. Of
this part of tho Hue tho Commissioner of Hie
General Land Oflicc, in his report for 1S03,
says that "throughout this whole extent of
"country the remains of former cultivation
"and evidences of civilization are to bo found,
"ruins of ancient cities.* and cathedrals existing
"LU many places, while traces of former irriga
"ting canals ocour in every direction, extend?
ing even into the donsost part of tho forest."
The valleys produce wheat, corn, cotton and
grapes, and along tho southern lino aro now
highly cultivated fields of grain and sugar cane,
with apples, peaches, apricots, pomegranates,
figs, grapes, lemons and oranges, in tho same
garden. Westward from El Paso to the 112th
meridian, thc soil of the levels and tho bills is
everywhere good, andovcrywhero covered with
a luxuriant growth of nutritious grass.
Wherever thero is water the whole region has
unsurpassed advantages for stock-raising in
character and quantity of the grasses, the mild
winters, and the freedom from flies and mua
quitoes. The abandoned town3 and remains
of largo grazing establishments, some of which
ore said to have bad a hundred thousand h ead
of cattle and horses, show what the capacities
of the country are to support prosperous set
tlemcLts, if they can be protected from the
Indians, and this has been abundantly illus?
trated sinco the American occupatio" by tho
rapid prosperity of those parts of tho territory
which have enjoyed protection.
"From the Rio del Nort? westward to the
Lower Gila, the traveller may so run his course
as to pass entirely over plains-thc prairies of
this region-differing slightly in elevation, and
generally SOOff to 4000 feet above the level of
the sea. Water-generally to bo had only in
the streams and the springs at thc base of the
mountains-can be obtained here by sinking
wells at no great depth. In bis last message
to the Legislature of Arizona, Governor Mc?
Cormick strongly sets out the fertility of these
plains, and recommends that provision bo made
for procuring water by siuking wells, which he
says will make this country blossom like the
rose. West of the 112th meridian tho road
line crosses what is called the Colorado desert,
by way of the Gila River, and thence from Fort
Yoma to San Diego its conree is through
Southern California, which partakes here of
the general character of that rich and beauti?
ful State. The noble harbor of San Diego,
which forms the Pecific terminas of this road,
is second on the Pacific eoast only to that of
"Of the ultimate value of a railroad to tho
Pacific, on this route, we have no doubt. Be?
fore tho war Congress had granted to the
Memphis and El Paso Company valuable fran?
chises. Now it asks little beyond right of way.
Its managers embrace gentlemen of national
reputation and undoubted capacity and respon?
sibility; they are confident of success, and the
fact that they ask so little, while others have
been asking so much, must weigh heavily in
