THE ADVANTAGES OF THE KNOXVILLE BOTTE.
AB Interesting ?nd Conclusive state?
The following letter, first published in the
Cinoinsati Chronicle, of Thursday, contains
an interesting and, it would seem, conclusive
statement of the advantages of Knoxville ae
one of the termini of the Southern Railroad
to be built bj the City of Cincinnati :
To Aha hdHorof'.hc Cincmn.(ti Chronide:
Much hos already been written in regard to
the different routes proposed for our Southern
railroad, and we propose to bring before your
read ors a condensed statement of the distances
to be overcome by the ri val routes, and their
comp ai ?it ve cost, ES shown by their own state?
ments. To this we propose to add some
remarks aa t > the character of the country
through wtuch these rival routes pass, and
abai! examine into tho advantages we mav ex?
pect to derive from the connections made at
their respective termini. AB to the proposed
air line from Cincinnati to Lexington, since it
shortens both hoes, and does not materially
1 affect the relative distances, we mav leave lt

Of wo ich total of 868 milos, 112 are completed
and in actual operation; 10 mare are graded

road to be built.
Toe distance from Knoxville to Chattanooga,
by the Bael Tennessee and Georgia "Railroad.
Whioh is in actual operation, is 112 miles, mak?
ing a total distance from Cincinnati to Chatta?
nooga, via Knoxville, of 886 m il ed, or 28 miles
further than by the Ghltwood route. The City
of Leederville, by roads m actual operation, is
bot 886 millee from Chattanooga, or 22 miles
nearer to that point than Cincinnati would be
by the Chit wood or so-called air line.
It therefore appears that Louisville, by the
Louisville and Nashville Railroad, with its con?
nection?, maat control the entire region west
of Chattanooga. The only region, therefore,
left opea to Cincinnati from Chattanooga is
that lying to the South, with which Chattanoo?
ga connects by way oi Dalton, Qa., and the
Western and Atlantic Railroad.
The distance from Chattanooga to Dalton is
38 miles, making the total distance to that
Eir from Cinotnnsti 886 miles. Knoxville
also rhreoi communication with Dalton by
a road in aotoal operation. 110 miles in length,
which makes Ute total distance from Cincinna?
ti to Dalton via Elk Oap and Knoxville, 884
miles, or 12 miles lees than by way of Chit wood
It therefore appears that Ciocinnat ian reach
Dalton, Georgia, the common point on both
linee, by way of Knoxville with a sa Ting, of
eighty-eight miles af railroad construction,
which, taking the average cost of railroads,
will amount to at least $3 OOO OOO. -?ri -th??
actual earing in distance of 12 ernies. .
Now. no oce pretends to darr thai Dalton,
aecrrgia, is the key, by roads in aotoal opera?
tion, not ouiy to me wnole ot Georgia, bot
also through the Beuna, Borne and Dalton Rail -
road to Central Alabama and the rich cotton
region of which Se mais tba centre, as well as
the important porte of Mobile and Pensacola.
An inspection of the military maps, which
are certainly free from all bias, as they
were com pdt d from aotoal surveys by the
ablest engineers in the "United States service
for government purposes during the war,
proves that Knoxville is but thirty-five miles
to -tba- -east of a- hue drawn doe south from
Cincinnati. It also provee that Knoxville is
geographically the osntre of the great valley
of East Tennessee, and that it must always
control the immense trade which will arise
from the development of the unsurpassed min
aral and agricultura] resources of that region
The value of E mt Tennessee iron bas been so
well established that it is unnecessary to com
ment upsn lt, and we have a suffirent evidence
of the value of their coal in the fact that the
Knoxville and Kentucky Railroad has beeo
constantly shipping it to points from which
their minta are nearly one hundred miles fur?
ther than those of Chattanooga.
We will now enumerate some of the advan?
tages offered by- the railroads centering at
Knoxville, from which we would be entirely
excluded if we were to adopt the Chattanooga
tanmntua lhioogb; tbe entire length of the
Valley of East Tennessee from the State Line
sf Virginia to Dalton, Ga ., with a brauch from
Cleveland, Tenn., to Chattanooga, exteads
the great hoe cf East Tennessee railroads,
irith 272 miles of track in acm il operation,
son trolled by the capitalists of Knoxville, who
>ffer to contract with Cincinnati to prorate
iver their roads for all Cincinnati freight, thus
?r&ctically giving Cinoumati the oontrcl of
?hose roads for its carrying trade. At the
State Lina of Virginia thees roads connect with
rh* Virginia railroads, and will give Ciooin
?ati a shorter oommnnication than any
low available with the western and central
sortions of that State, and' a competing
meto the port of Norfolk, until the com?
pletion of t?o Chesapeake and Ohio Road.
At Morristown. Tenn., 42 miles east of Knox
nile, on the East Tennessee and Virgin'a Rai i
td, the Cincinnati, Cumberland Gap and
J tar leeton Railroad diverges to the south, fol
owmgthe Valley of the French Broad to the
i tate line ot North Carolina at Paint Bock, a
list ance of 45 miles, of which 43 aro in acta il
speration. The State of North Car eli ra is
Hushing its Western North Carolina Railroad
to a connection with the above road at Paint
Book, and that road in actual opeiation to Mor
fftBtown, "itfiiD 107 miles of Paint Bock. In
iddition to this they have completed their
rrade 25 miles further to Marion, and have the
iron at Morgantown to complete this section,
thus practically leaving a gap of but 82 miles
between the railroads ot Bast Tennessee and
North Carolina. To fill this gap in the connec?
tion the State of North Carolina has appropri?
ated 13 000,000 in Slate bonds, an amount which
is estimated to be amply sufficient to complete
the work, ae over one-half that distance is in
the Valley of the French Broad. The comple?
tion of this link will connect Knoxville with
the railroad system of North Carolina, travers?
ing tho entire length and breadth or that great
Stater and terminating in the ports of New?
born, Beaufort and Wilmington.
From Knoxville the Blue Ridge Railroad is
in actual operation for 16 miles, to Maryville,
and from Anderson, South Carolina, its sond?
ern terminus, is also completed and in opera?
tion for 33 miles, to Walhalla, being one hun?
dred and torty-six miles between its rails, upon
which gap there were expended, prior to 16G1,
tl 500,000 in gold. This amount was expended
in pushing forward the heaviest work, which
was so far advanced that tho entire hue can be
completed within two years. To close this
gap, the States of .-oath Carolina and Tennes?
see have pledged their credit to the extent of
$4,870,000, an amount whieh insures the com?
pletion of the road within the time specified,
At the point where the Blue Ridge Railroad
emerges from the mountains on its way south?
ward, lies the town of Clav ton, Ga. The stock?
holders of the Georgia Railroad Company, a
wealthy corporation now paying large divi?
dends, at a recent meeting adopted a resolu?
tion, iuetructing their officers to extend their
Athene branch to a connection with the Blue
Bidge Railroad at Clayton, and this will be the
true air line to Cenbral Georgia, throwing ont
the circuitous route by way of Dalton.
* At Anderson, the southern terminus of the
Blue Bidge Railroad, it connects with roads in
actual operation traversing the whole interior
of South Carolina, terminating at the port of
Charleston, and also connecting with the City
of Augusta and port of Savannah. The City
of Augusta ia a large cotton market, and is
the centre of trade for a very large ona wealthy
It appears, we believe, that if Knoxville ie
designed as oar southern terminus, all these
important connections will he completed'with?
in two yean; that our connection with Knox?
ville can be completed within the same time;
that Cincinnati can immediately recover the
trade of an immense region, which will afford
an inexhaustible market for our manufactures
and the surplus products of the West, and
that at the same time we secare a port which
will give aa the shortest, cheapest and best
route by which we can compete with the East?
ern cities in direct trade, not only with Europe,
but also with the West Indies and South
In conclusion, we will compare the advan?
tages from the localities through the rival
routes in Kentucky. All the counties ot Ken?
tucky l}icg .east and north of the Kentucky
River are geographically tributary to Cincin
[ nati. Those lying southwest of the Kentucky
River are geographically tributary to Louis?
ville, whioh city, by its Lebanon branch, bas
already reached them. It is useless for Cin?
cinnati to expend ber means in tryiDg to reach
these counties, because the linea to Louisville
now in operation are shorter than any which
Cincinnati can possibly construct. The only
region in Kentucky naturally tributary lo the
trade of this city is the neb counties on and
the eastward of the Knoxville route, and the
Citizens of these counties have offered to con
tribute largely to the building of the road. W

Whether merited or not, this little notice is
damaging to the last degree. French women

do not. What is worse, they engage pell-mell
with these women in somethiDg very bke tl.
can-can, for they come oat of it dishevelled
sad allin perspiration! Then there ia an in
aident in keeping with what precedes; a young
lady leaves her mother's protection-an nt ter .y
unpardonable sin in France. Another lady
compromises at leaat her good breeding by
crying in public-ob, honor)-for her lo it
lover. Finally, as the bouquet, Mr. Worth, the
ramona man-milliner of the Rae de la Paix
makes his entry. He has been told by the
French ladies, whose dresses be made, at what
hoar he might come and hud them gone; for
aithough they like Mr. Worth in hn shop
they prefer to shift his entertainment upon
the exotica who stay late at a chan y ball.
English and American young ladies do not
always obsede the rules of French society,
that's certairj. Bat they did not cbme to Paris
for that. They come to see wbat they cm ses,
and to ?et the woith of their money. They
know that French society ia mixed-horridly
mixed-and that if they, uninitiated foreigners,
should undertake to sift it, and to sep?rate
th* good from the damaged fruit, they would
utterly "lose their Latin." French people
cannot do it themselves; they do not even try
it, for it is noterions that they ran more from
the "common hero* th au from th* "immoral
herd." Gilded vice passes everywhere with the
notorious public women, and nobody protests;
au contraire. Tb* fashionable Mme. Trois
Etoiles and her daughters are rather proud to
occupy aeats next to the brilliant sinners, but
their evening would be quite, ob I quite spell?
ed, if same honest, high-necked -bourgeoise
should occupy the place. It makes no differ?
ence that their low-necked neighbors are the
centre of a hondrpd lorgnettes ; in fact they are
rather made happy by the admiring glances
they receive by ricochet from them; they are
willing to accept this admitation by proximity;
they go home and dream happily ou their vica?
rious triumphs, and wake ap each morning
with an additional screw loose in their moral
perceptions of right and wrong.
It ia possible th it the American girl does
carry into her intercourse with foreigners too
much of her native freedom of manner; bot
then, in general, she does not come abroad to
get married, nor does abe como here to con?
vert foreigners to ber code of propriety. At
any rote she could not do it if she would. A
certain number do come, perhaps, with malice
aforethought to get married; but these know
well that to depart from the rigid roles that
govern foreign yoong ladies is to compromise
their projects; for, however well individual for?
eigners may reason on the subject, t bey take
good caro not to mn counter to the prejudices
of their own people by putting their reasoning
After all, the principals vii that grore ont of
the free and easy manners of oar young
ladies-for there would be no sort of barm in
their never marrying a foreigner at all-is the
kind of notice quoted above. These notices are
multiplying iu the French press; it is quite a
common thing to allude directly cr indirectly
lo the last manners of oar yoong ladies, and
ihns a damaging impression is fixing itself m
i permanent way in the public mind. There
fere, not so much zeal, young ladies; when yon
are m Rome it ia better to do as Kornaus do,
than to try to convert the said Romans.
It would not be nght to say anything against
Ur, Worth, for he is the prince of industrials
In his way. His es abashment is a curiosity;
it least that is what people generally say.
There is certainly none other like it. It is
sunous the evening of a fancy dress ball at the
Tuileries to see the jam of crested carriages
before hia door. It ia curious to Bee ladies as i
ieeply crested as their carnages take tickets i
tit the door, BO as to be admitted ia turn to the <
presence or the great mau inside. It is curi?
ous to witness their assault on the lunch set
out for them in the waiting-room, and which '
suggests that perhaps they do not all penetrate i
farther into the temple of fashion. Once in- i
side, it is something more than cun?os to wit?
ness what takes place. The artist, a good?
ie .'king man of Tony, with black bair and .

ilthough he acmetim.es forgets himself and 1
says be ia an Englishman-Stauda in the mid- '

customer, examines her as he would a horse ,
ne way s going to buy. He mattes a female as
Blatant turu ber around, trot ber up and down,
sit down, stand up. and finally be issues his
fiat, from which there is no appeal, and the .'
customer must take tho dress, the cat and the i
price he dictates. "That or nothing, Madam;
if anything else both yon and I would be
ruined 1" Then, when the costume is finished,
they must return with it on, to see whether it
does not need a touch here and there before
its. advent in the world. Mr. Worrh ?Q?S
through all this prosees with such decorum
and with buch un evident eye t J ?ut, that the
fashionable world, from the Empress down, de?
clares that in fashion there is but one god and
Worth is hie prophet.
But there is a go id side to Worth that the
world in general does n it kno w of. Wor th ie
liberal to the trade; ho. does not charge fifty
francs to a smaller tradesman for a pattern; ho
gives it to bim. It may bo that he considers
his position so exalted that he need not fear ri?
valry; but, at any rate, be encourages poorer
work-people by giving them hts inventions,
and nobody else does that. More J ver. he invents
bonnels and boots and hoop skirts and collars
and gives them tu tho people engaged iu the
manufacture of these several articles, aal
charges them nothing for them. He has thus
been the fortuae of a crowd ot poor people who
look upon bim as a sort of benefactor. He ie
alone the inventor of the greater part of the
fashions which fashionable ladies wear in all
parts of the world. He shapes the lorms of
womankind the wide world over. Was ever
mortal so omniscient before?
Does he get rich? No, for he is an artist, a
Bohemian, a spendthrift. Hu keeps open house
at his country place at Bur?enos the year round,
and the champagne flows in rivers, the pate de
foie qrte mell s by the ton. Bot his partner
aud business man takes care of his money and

it is to be the high priest of .fashion.
ALOMO THE PACIFIC RAILWAY.
It may be a little late to celebrate the glories
nf the Pacific Railroad, but we find io tho cor?
respondence of the San Francisco Bulletin a
few fads of interest even after the opening of
the finished line. The correspondent found
one morning on the line of the Central Pacific
road a large force of carpenters handling
rough lumber whioh they were to build into
six water tanks to hold 8000 gallons each. Be?
fore night the tanks were made, hooped and
mounted on their supports. It took three days
for another gang of workmen to dig a ditch
aeven miles long to a spring in the nids and
lay pipe to connect it with the tanks. The dis?
tance ordinarily travelled in a day by the track?
layers, besides extra walking, was over ten
miles, and during the same time each of the
men carried a weight of 120 to 126 tons a dis?
tance ol thirty feet. Most of the men who did
this work had been with Die company from tho
first, and would not consent to be relieved,
however long might be the hours of work.
They have (75,000 of savings in the safe of one
of the officers of the company, and are strict
total abstinence mea.
The same correspondent gives a lively sketch
of four new towns, Winnemucca, Argenta, Car?
line and Elko, ail of which thrive on expectations
of future greatness. Elko appears to have the
best founded hopes. We copy a part of the
description of this town :
Elko is a great place; there are several
lines of streets, though the town has sprung
np since January last, and thriven entirely on
the Whito Pine excitement. Some people nick?
name it 'Ragto wn,' from its White cotton walls.
* * * At Elko, at this time, calico is the
great boilding material, sud, thongh there are
two brick yards-adobe-most of the supply
of this kind of material goes for building chim?
neys and fire-places. Lumber was $200 a
thousand feet-not extravagant; considering
that the first freight train only came through
five days ago-and pine lamber, by exprese, is
necessarily costly. Some vary seat cottages
have been built in rows, of tte two great pro?
ducts of the country-sage bruwh and mud
worked up into walls of lath "tod daub * *
Within a mile of Elko, on the road to White
Pine, is a large natural s wimsaing bath, where
visitors can choose their temperature, from
tepid to boiling. The depth ie sals to be verv
great, and some say that at 200 feet no bottom
bas been found. The floating po ml at ion of
E.koh which is very large, to their credit be it
said, indulge in frequent bathing, and as far
as ls known, whether they can all swim or nat,
none of them have yet been drowned. A two
horse wagon ls kept hard at work taking and
bringing hack the bathers.
AFFAIRS IN TOR STATE.
The village was visited on Saturday after?
noon with a violent squall, accompanied by
thunder and rain. The gust lasted about half
an hour, and blew with great violence so as to
prest?ate tress and i en ces, and smash up
things pretty generally. The workshop of
Mr Robert Lambert, east of the village waa
blown down, and some damage was done to
material inside, bat we ara glad to say that
we have not heard of anybody being hut.
The Star says: "Our oldest citizens say
that the present month of May has been with?
out a precedent in their recollection. Cold,

SSrlflE VITAL STATIS 1ICS OF THE
United States show that periodical fevers and acute
and chronic disorders ot the stomach and bowels
arc amonir tho most prominent and total diseases in
tb:-' country. Disobedience to the laws of hoalth,
as regards diet ; the use of pernicious stimulants;
and i he wear and tear of business excitement, and of
..fast life" generally, have much to do with the pre?
valence of tu ere maladies In our cl tie?; while in the
West, and especlaUy ia the newly opened districts,
they are chiefly due to malaria, unwholesome wa*
ter, an! the exposure and p. ivation Incident to life
in new settlements.
Now, it ls a fact that it is a? possible to protect
the human 6ystem against these maladies as to tm ard
life and property against tho incursions of assassins
and thieves. Strengthen the vital organizion with
HO->l ETTER'3 SI OMACH BITTERS, and lt be?
comes as capable of resisting the aclivc principle of
epidemic or eudemi; disease as a fire-proof salo is

experience of thousands who have remained un
soaJied by malarious disorders in the sickliest sea
sous, while their neighbors, who neslected to tone
and regulate their systems with thia unequalled
medicinal stimulant, have fallen thies and fust
around them. Weakness it vites disease. Vigor re?
