CINCINNATI AND CHARLESTON.
The Cincinnati Enquirer, of the 19tb, pub?
lishes a leading article upon the Southern rail?
way, which is as follows :
We had the pleasure of mot-ting at the Bar?
net House, last evening, Colonel Adrian Terry,
of Knoxville; General J. W. Harrison, Presi?
dent, and Colonel James P. Low, Chief Engi?
neer ol the Blue Bidge Railroad; J. B. Laflttj,
of Charleston, 8. C.; Colonel John H. Crozier,
V. H. Sturm, ot Knoxville, ana other gentle?
men, who are here for the purpose of impress?
ing the business' men of Cincinnati with the
importance of a Soatherc railway connection
by tbe way of Knoxville. According to their
showing, it w ll oe seen that the length of
rosa required to fill the crap between Paris,
Kentucky, and Elk Gap, Tennessee, to which
point a railway ia now completed from Knox?
ville, is but one hundred and forty-eight
miles. At Knoxville this route connects with
tbe B!u3 Ridge Road, in process of con?
struction, th IIB opening up communication
with Charleston. Tho Blue Ridge Road, it IB
asserted, will be comple.ed whenever Knox?
ville id named as the terminus, without a
dollar of cost to the City of Cincinnati,
whilo the connections mode at Kuoxvilie
would place ns in easy communication with
Chattanooga Dalton. Atlanta and East uni
West Virginia. It is understood that there is a
rival route to the one referred to which is pro?
posed from Nicho.'asville to Chattanooga, a
distance ot two hundred and forty-nine mues.
This, tbe advocates of the other Imo claim,
would bring us uo better or nearer conan uni
?ation with Cnatta-ooca than that which
Louisville already possesses. TBe advantages
which the Paris and Elk Gap route possess
over the one last named, as shown by their
representations, are as follows : A Southern
connection can be formed with ono hundred
miles less of ioad; the road can be completed j
in from ooo to two years' less time, while the j
country through which it passes is richer both
in minerals and agricultural resources.
The gentlemen above referred to will remain
at the Barnet House several days longer,
t hey aro anxious to ascertain the feeling of in?
terested citizens upon the subject, and wish to
carry borne with them an ex jression of some
kind in reference to this great project. Tbey
are prepared, with maps and statistical re
ports, to present the claims of the Knoxville
route, sud will be pleased to see as many gen- I
tleman at their rooms as feel an interest in the
early construction cf the propose 1 new railway. ]
Their room is No. 61.
Tho followin? telegram was received yester?
day m relation to the projected Southern Rail?
"KNOXVILLE, May 18.1869.

And the same paper contains the following
lucid aud cogent letter in regard to tbe Knox-1
rille mate :
THE G HAND THUNK RAILROAD.
The arguments in the papers of (he 17th I
inst., in regard to the necessity of the direcfw
ine to the South from* Cincinnati, are very
forcibly stated ly the waiter, but, un/brtuuate
y for him, there are some en ors of statement (
nat will not stand agaiust facts in the oase.
In the drat place, what Cincinnati wants is I
t region which she can supply with the pro-1
loots ot the Great West and ber own mann- I
"acturea. lu the next place she wants a rail- 11
road line open at all seasons of the year, and I
eading to a port through which she can ex- I
x>rt her surplus and import the products of I
>t the West Indi ?B, Sooth America and Europe,
h the third place she wants a short route to

he north and east ot the great cotton re
ion. Chattanooga ie nearer by twenty miles Ic
0 Louisville by railroads already constructed 1
han to Cincinnati by the proposed air line. I
ill the region immediately west of Chattanoo- .
a is already tnbutnry to Louisville through J
iver navigation, and (he ra iii o ad connecting 1

ie that lying to the south of Cha11 mooga. J he i
Vill's Val ley Railroad gives Chattanooga a short I j
oute to toe mineral region of Northern Alaba- j
na und tue cotton region of Mississippi But 1
0 order to roach the cotton region of Alabama, <
>f which tolma is. as the writer remarks, tho 11
entre, the trade of Cincinnati must pass
brough Dalton, Georgia, winch is fifteen miles ?
tearer to Cincinnati, via Knoxville and (he
rate proposed by that eily, than it is by way ot f
Chattanooga and tuc proposed air line to that
1 ace. Now, Dalton, Georgia, is not only thc ?
toiut through which the ti effie cf Chattanoo- <
;a with Soathern and Central Alabama, and J
he important points of Mobile and Pensacola, I /
ansi pass, but is also that through which sbe
anet communicate with the whole of Georgia 1
nd Souita Carolina. It therefore results that i
he route via Knoxville and Dalton gives the f
oute proposed by Kn oxville fifteen miles thc
dvantago bv roads already built io the com
ounication between Cincinnati and the cotton f
egion. Cincinnati now manufactures to a J t
argo extent the very articles which aro most j
leeded by tho Slates that produce the cotton. ]
t follows, therefore, that the shortest lino to 1
he cotton region is the shortest line to the I
egion that consumes her mannfactuies and (.
urplus prod'iots, and that line is via Kuox
ilte and Dalton, Georgia, by roads already (
The advocates ol' thc d rect Chattanooga c
onie do not even assume to competo with

Now tho West ladies and South America '
re tho largest consumers of those articles of c
rtuob Cincinnati has the most to sparc, viz: j ?
he surplus products of the West, and Cuarlcs
on is unquestionably the nearest and J 1
cst port through wince that trade cao j s

est transao* ber European trade, being s: tu- J
te midway betweet the hurncane regions of

wept by storms ab least one-half the year. 1
ne cotton freighted from Charleston gives an t
utward freight to Europe largely io excess of j f
er imports, and thus makes the roturo I
reiglit cheaper than to any North Atlantic
ort. It is a well known fact that the mai >ri- r
y of the vessels and steamers coming from j
tarop? lo Cbiirk'Ston arrive iu ballast, and
bat the port charges ?nd other expenses ol'
huso ships oro less than those of any other

The road via Chitwood'e, it is urged, will have 1

As to the miner il region of the Chattanooga
?ir Une. that of the Knoxville and Kentucky
lailroad can not ie surpassed, as th ? report ot
he State Geologist of Tennessee will prove,
[he writer speaks of tho great water courses
hat feed Chattanooga, but we would simply
sk if these fade are as stated, bow it happens
hat the population of Chattanooga has not II
reased -if, indeed, it has not diminisbeu
ri hin the last three years-while that ?T
knoxville has nearly doub'led ? The Knoxville
nd Kentucky Road, between Knoxville and
Hinton, a dit-tanoo ot twenty miles, bas a max
mum trrado of ninety-five feet, twenty-one
eet lees than the maximum grade of the Sal
timor? Md?b? Railroad, and twenty-five les a
than tb/.t &t the Tc-nnsylvanta Central Rail?
road. . .
North of Clinton the road has been loaated
to the ?ia'o line with a maximnm Krade of
sixty-six feet, and has been so cons trac ted to
its northern terminas, while the estimates for
the oost of its completion are based upon tbat
location. The twenty miles between Knox?
ville and Clinton were originally located with
crades of bat fifty-three feet to the mile, and
can be reconstructed, if necessary, with no
heavier grades than the remainder of the road.
Even now, a twenty-seven ton engine takes a
net load of one hundred tons of coal over these
grades, and a single pusher put npon this
section could easily assist three full trains
each way daily, at a very small ex?
pense. On the Chitwood route* the engineers
admit that they have grades of eighty feet to
thc mile, and its advantages on a ht not there?
fore to insist too strenuously on those ot the
Knoxville and Kentucky road, On the elm?
wood route again there are ninety-six miles of
mountain work from Cumberland Uiver to
Emery Grap, and that m a country which
hardly produces enough to feed its sparco pop?
ulation, while on the Elk Gap route there are
but thirty milos ot mountain work, and fifteen
of these aro already grnded. The writer's
argument, therefore, in regard to the wrough
country through which the Knoxville route
passes, falls to the ground."
As to the immense saving of distance claim?
ed tor tho direct Chattanooga route, as it is
less than thirty miles further to Chattanooga
by the Knoxville route than by his air Imo.
how does it happen that he saves 114 miles in
distance to the southwest? We will close with
this question, and the sssortain that instead of
connecting with only 3400 miles of railroad,
the railroads centering at Knoxville connect
with the entire railroad systems of thc United
States and Canada.
The Cincinnati Cbionicle, of Thursday,
prints the following leading article on the same
The important question now before our peo?
ple is the establishment of the southern ter?
minus o* our great railroad. A number of gen?
tlemen bare boen io the city presenting the
special reasons why their respective cities
should be named by the City Council in their
resolution submitting the matter to tue vote of
the people, and the face has been fully devel?
oped that the people of tho whole country,
south, southeast and southwest of us. aro,
and for years have been exceedingly anxious
to cultivate the most intimate commercial
reis, ions with us. The only wonder to
those who have studied the matter is that Cin?
cinnati bas so long stood indifferent to the de?
sires and efforts of those who have been so
earnestly struggling to come to ns and help
onward in the road to commercial greatness.
Without, however, stopping to regret the past,
it now becomes us to go energetically and
earnestly iuto the great voik. Not loo hastily,
not >n ignorance ot what we aro doing, but,
ignoring individual interests, and in the light
of the beat informat on, the great work should
be proceeded with in the mannt r to a eco mph.-h
the greatest practical good with the least ex?
pense and risk to thc city.
In another column we print a statement in
favor of Kucxville as the southern terminus,
winch will well repay persual. It is clear and
succinct, and unless its assertions ein bo dis?
proved it seems to us that the writer makes a
clear case in favor of that city. In order that
the article may bj fully understood, the reader
should have constant leterance to a map of
the country through which the proposed routes

A cotrespondenl of.-tb,a#Peter6buig Index
writes from Salem, Roanoke County, -y? on*
the 17th instant as follows:
To-day tbere assembles in the county a few
milos from here a national convention of that
singular sect, the Du i. karda. For several days
they have been flocking m this direciion-men,
women and children - from Pennsylvania,
Northern Maryland, New Jersey, the Weat and
all the mountainous portions of Virginia, by
every conceivable mode of conveyanoe, nntil
tbere are gathered in this viciuliy about 7000
of the queerest people a bright May sun ever
shone upon. The mon are ordinary-looting
enough, but quiet and well-mannered. Tho
women are ?resta, smooth and robust. Some of
the gula are very pretty, and it is quite a con?
trast to s o pouting lips, rosy trecke and
roguish ey es. looking oat fiom tho pr.m edges
of a square-cut cap, which is old inaidisbly
si iff. p.. mt ully white, a.id Quakorishly ugly.
I havo no: been able to attend thc conven?
tion, and doubtless tue mere business proceed?
ings would be dull for your readers, but some
particulars of their peculiarities of creed and
habits of life may not provo uninteresting.
They aro etnet constructionists of ibo Bible,
and the system of their church organization is
patriarchal-the influence ot the pastor almost
omnipotent. They settle all business matters
arising between the brethren by action of the
charch. There is never a law-suit between
Duukards, though they may euo or bo sued by
outsiders. And such a thing as a pauper has
never been known among them. Ihe congre?
gation supports its needy. It is oue ot the
best, as well as strongest, of their laws that
no member shall be a candidate tor public
office-tue genuine effect of which rule is good,
but its execution naturally engenders quito an
indifference to poli'ical matters; and as they
always vote unanimously as a charch, it is hara
to bring them out upon ordinary issues. Then,
they are timid ia such matters-the more so
now, as in Virginia, they unanimously voted for
secession, and, regarding it as a mistake, are
more disposed than ever to let governmental
Io religious affairs they d'flVr chiefly hom
other sects in the strictness of their live",
tbough their form of worship has some pecu?
liarities based, as they say, upon thc Scrip
1 lures and ancient practice. They baptize by
immersion, plunging tho convert three times
into the water, lace forward. Ia the com
1 manion-which always occurs at night, and
in the open au*-they have first a substantial
repast of so rps and meats, &\; at the end of j
which they wash ea-:h other's feet, the men
mu rehanging embraces and kisses, and tho
womon caressing ea ah other, the dual feature
being the taking of bread and wine.
The unanimous estimation of these people
by their foliow-citizans ia that they aro moral,
moil-j u sive and thrifty, but tbev never contri?
bute a cent to public improvements of any
