CINCINNATI AND CHARLESTON.
Report of J. B. Lafitte, Esq..
' The following report, giving some interest?
ing particulars in regard to the recent mis?
sion to Cincinnati in behalf of the commercial
interests of Charleston, has been prepared for
presentation to Mayor Pillsbury:
CHARLESTON, May 28.1869.
Sort. Gilbert Pillsbury, Mayor of Charleston:
SIB-In accordance witn the appontment
conferred upon me, 1 left this city on the morn?
ing of the 11th instant, arriving at Cincinnati
on the night of the 18th, and returned hero on
the 26th, and now beg leave to submit tbe fol?
Many of our citizens may not be fully in?
formed of the poe ?lion heretofore occupied by
Cincinnati with reference to giving aid to
railroads. I therefore deem it proper to pre?
mise by stating that until very recently that j
city was prohibited by its charter from aiding
as a corporation in the construction of any
railroad. It ia to this fact alone that we must
attribute the failure of ail former attempts to
form the muon desired railway connection
with that city, which has occupied the
thoughts and enlistad the support of many of
tbe leading men of Ohio, Kentucky and Ten?
nessee, as well as of our own State, for more
than thirty years past.
At its reoent session the Legislature of Ob to
passed an act authoiizing any oity having
more than 160.000 inhabitants to expend
a sum not exceeding ten millions of
dollars in tbe construction of a railroad
from such city ta some other point to be
named by the City Council. By the pro?
visions of this act the City Council must first
declire by a resolution of tbe majority of their
board, that such road is essential to the in?
terests of Buob oity. Th is resolution must
then be submited to the voters at a special
election, to be held after twenty da? s* notice
shall have been given. If ratified by a majori?
ty of the voters, tho Superior Court shall ap?
point five commissioners, to whom the bonds
of the city are to be issued, and who are to be
charged with the duty of constructing the rail?
Upon my arrival at Cincinnati, I found tbat
the Joint Committee of the Common Council
and Board of Trade-, to whom the matter had
been referred tor tbe purpose of taking evi?
dence as to the best ron to to be adopted, had
a Ire ?dy held several sessions, and that the
claims of the Chattanooga route bad been
pressed with great eoerery and zeal, by dele?
gates from tbat place and by others interested
io the adoption of that route. Io cons?quence
of these ex parte statements, I found tbat a
very general preference for that line was enter?
Oo Saturday, the 16th instant, the Joint
Committee held a session for the pur?
pose ot healing the statements of the
delegates from East Tennessee and
from this State. Tbe advantages of the
Knoxville route were very clearly stated
by the President and Chief Engineer of the
Blue Bidge Railroad, by Directora and Chief
Engineers of the East Tennessee Roads, by
Governor Scott, of tbis state, and by other
delegates from Err,: Tennessee. I also bad tbe
honor of addresfiog thc committee, confining
my remarks to au exposition of a very lew of
the many commercial advantages to be derived
by Cincinnati from a short and direct connec?
tion with this port.
Colonel Mansfield, a venerable and esteemed
citizen of Ohio, and a delegate to the first con?
vention, hold in 1836, to consider this same
question, addressed the committee, io some
very eloquent and cogent remarks, in favor of
thia route, wbiob bad been adopted thirty
three years ago, and wtalob., until very recently,
was deemed without a rival.
This meeting was attended by a very large
number of the leading merchants of Cincin?
nati, who evinced a great interest in the sub?
ject, and I tee! fully warranted in saying, that
the facts and arguments adduced produced a
marked effect apon those present. This im
pression was strengthoned and sase-<ya bj ?
further statements an appian at ion a mado be?
fore a subsequent session of the committee,
also by articles published in the Cincinnati
journals, and by private interviews with many
of tbe leading men of the place who visited our
rooms, where witta the aid of military, topo?
graphical, and other authentic maps, the fact a
and explanations erven could be more clearly
exhibited and confirmed.
Our city and State has and can have no in?
terest in the Chattanooga route, aa the in?
creased distance would be such as to prevent
any extensive trade between Cincinnati and
ourselves. With the knowledge of this fact
before me, I stated to the committee that it
was my firm conviction that if the Knoxville
route were not adopted, the people of thia
State would abandon tbe completion of the
Blue Ridge Road, preferring to sacrifice the
vast sums already expended to making fur?
ther sacrifices in our vain effort to form a con?
nection with them, which we had persevered
in for over thirty years. As yet no practical
advances had been mods by Cincinnati to meet
us at the Tennessee line, as originally agreed
I was perfectly sincere io making this state?
ment, but a fuller investigation of the whole
matter in all its bearings has induced me to
change my opinion, for reasons that I shall
presently set forth, and which convince me
that Cincinnati has infinitely more at stake in
the selection of Knoxville as the Southern ter?
minus of her propose! railway than wo have.
Whilst I still avow a decided preference f r
that route, I shall endeavor to show thal it is a
matter of vital importance not only to our cuy
but to our State, to complete tbe Blue Ridge
Rood as speedily as possible, regardless of the
route or terminus that may be determined
upon by Cincinnati.
I shall not enter into a lengthy discussion of
the comparative advantages offered to Cincin?
nati by the two roites proposed, but they may
be briefly stated as follows :
The distance from Cincinnati to Knoxville
via Paris, London, Elli Gap, and other minor
pointa is 274 miles, of which 111 are completed
and m actual operation, and 15 more ar; graded
and ready tor tbe iron, leaving only 148 miles
of road to ba built. The roads already built
can be purchased at a moderate price, certain?
ly not exceeding wbat it would cost to con?
struct them, and Cincinnati would thus own
and control the entire line to Kooxville. Tbe
roads from this city to Knoxville, though
owned by three distinct corporations, would
be virtually controlled by one and the same
interest, and the entire line from Charleston
to Cincinnati would of necessity bo operated
with that harmony which is so necessary to
promote the interests of all concerned.
The distance from Cincinnati to Chatta?
nooga by tbe proposed route via Cbitwood is
358 milos, ot which 112 miles are completed,
and 10 miles more have been graded, leaving
230 miles of roud yet to bo built. Of tho US
miles already completed, a considerable por?
tion, leading directly south from Cincinnati, is
common to both routes.
The advantages of tho Knoxville route in the
shortness or tho lino to be built are too mani?
fest to require further comment. The greater
advantages of the connections to bo made at
tho respective termini are at least equally so.
The distance from Cincinnati to Chat anoo
jro via Knoxville by tho proposed ronlo to
Knoxville, and by the East Tenaessoe and
Georgia Railroad, now in actual op ration,
theoce to Chattanooga, is 380 miles or only 28
milos moro than by the Cbitwood routo. At
! Chattanooga the proposed Imo to tbat place
would have two coonee ions, to wit: ibo Wills
Valley Railroad now m process of construction,
and tho Western and Atlantic Railroad now in
operation to Atlanta, Georgia, via Dalton.
Dalton is situated 38 milos to the southeast of
Chattanooga, and is tba terminus of tbo East
Tennessee and Georgia Riilroad distant 110
miles from Knoxville by that railroad, tho con?
nection between Knoxville and Chattanooga
being made by a branoh road diverging west
wardly from tho main hoe atCle/olaud. Dal?
ton being a common point to both toutos, is
therefore tho truo point tb be considered in
estimating the advantages to be derived from a
connection w:th tho Western and Atlantic Rail?
road to Atlanta, tho great railroad centre of the
State of Georgia. Dal-ou, it will ba aeon by
aiding together tho distances already stated,
ia 39U miles from Cincinnati y tho proposed
line to Chattanooga, and only 384 miles by the
proposed Knoxville route, inc one soitary
advantage gained by Cincinnati in building
the line to Cuattanooga is thc gain of 28 miles
in makin cr a connection wub tho Wilt'd Val?
From what has been said, persons not tully
informel upon tho subject would, upon boing
told that tho Chattanooga route is being se?
riously considered, at ones condado that tho
connection with thc Wills Valley Road is one
of vital importance. A brief statement of tacts
w?l at toce dispel this illusion. Thu road,
now in procesa of construction, lies <
north side of a range of mountains, and
fore commands only the trade of a limite
tion of North Alabama, and ia ont off t
chain of mountains from all 'communi
with the great cotton belt until it rea?
point in Central Alabama some distance
of Selma, where it connecta with roads 1?
to Mobile and New Orleans.
The Selma, Borne and Dalton Road is i
actual operation aa far as Borne, and will
be completed to Dalton. This Road ru
most parallel to the Willa Valley Boa<
being fooatsd on the south aide of the ch
mountains, commands the trade of th?
cotton region of Alabama, and Dy ita co
tiona at Selma offers at least as short a roi
New Orleans and a shorter one to Mobil
Besides the advantages referred to abov
connections to be made at Knoxville are o
and ot Incalculable importance. At that r.
Cincinnati would connect with roads in a
operation, which traverse East Tennessee
the entire length of the great State ol
ginia, terminating at Richmond and Norfc
Ry a railroad now under construction,
of which only eighty-two miles remain
completed, (the meane for building which
already been provided) Knoxville will soo
placed ia connection with tbe entire netwo
railroads that traverse the length and bre
of North Carolina.
By the Blue Ridge Railroad they will con
v.t^h the railroad system of our own 8
which would opea to them a large marie
their manufactures and surplus products,
wdl reach our harbor, which is the nearest
beet of all tbe Atlantic ports for the ti an
tion of their foreign export and import t:
with Europe, the West Indies and 8t
America; and offers peculiar advantages

southern and southwestern Georgia, inclue
tbe port of Savannah, than by tho circuir
route via Chattanooga.
With this statem .-n t of the comparative
vantages cf the two routes, and which I beli
tobe entirely correct io every particular
may well be deemed strange by an impar
observer, that there should be a moment's h
it at ion as to the route to be selected, lt <
only be accoaated for by the fact referret
in the earlier port or this communication, t
the advocates of the Cbattaoo iga route bav
had entire possession of tbe public ear prloi
our i rn val, bad, by partisan anl ex pa
statements created an impression favorable
that route; and it is well kno vn that first i
pressions are not easily eradicated, even by i
plainest and strongest evidence, lt may a
be safely said that in all such ea ter prises \
dertakcu by a city or State there ore ma
private interests tbat may be favorably
fected, not only by the s?lection of the tr ?ui
but by the looatoo cf the entire line. *. ci
not be supposed that this case forms
exception to that general rule, and
have no doubt if a doz m other rou
were proposeo they would eaob dod soi
interested and zealous advocates.
80 far as our own people arc concerned,
would be a work o f sup. re rogation to enuu
rate the many advantages which a short a
direct communication with this port wot
offer to Cincinnati as well as to ourselvi
Every practical merchant knows what thc
advantages are; but the people of Cincinn;
know Utile more of ui and of our harbor tb
we know of them and their manufactures, a:
I must therefore be excused if I make soi
allusion to them.
The merchants of Cincinnati attach mu
importance to a connection with a Gu f poi

plies of sugar, molasses, coffee, and otb
West Indian and South American produce
endeavored, and I think successfully, to satie
many uf them that our port offered great
advantages in this respect than any Gulf poi
The d stance is about the same, but the YO
ncrft hninir-" r'*ni ?.?.a mu oxp&no
incurred by vessels visiting our port beii
much less than at any Gaff port, gives us a d
oidcd advantage in the rates of freight. Tl
difference of insurance ie also greatly in 01
favor; and as we export largely of yellow pic
lumber to tbe West Indies, by vessels whit
have now to seek a return freight to tt
North in consequence of the smallness of 01
imports, such vessels would toke our Iambi
at lower rates, if assured of a reasonable pr
bability of a return cargo to this port. Tl
samo advantages as to freights and insurant
would apply to cargoes ot coffee from Rio. Vi
also offer great advantages aa compared wit
Northern Atlantic ports, owing to the abor
ness of tbe voyage, and the avoidances of tt
storms which prevail north of Hatteras du
in? a greater portioo of tbe year.
The low rates of storage, drayaga and otht
petty charges, as compared witb either tl
Gulf or Noith Atlantic ports, is also an impor
ant item in our favor.
As most of the ships and steamers arri vin
at our port, from Europe, in quest of cotto
freights, now come in ballast, all that has bee
said of the West Indian ana South America

I had ac first formed and expressed that i
the event of tho adoption of Chattanooga a

aud should abandon tho completion of th
Rino Ridge Railroad. I shall now give m
reasons for changing my opinions, and will m

Stale that they ehoald at once devoto all tbei

take at the present time.
That I may not bc accused of inconsistency
I here repeat that I hive a decided proferenc
for the Knoxville route, and hope, and believe
tbat tho peoplo of Cincinnati will adopt tba
route and no other. My preference is bas?e
upon the conviction that the interests of th<
two cities are, to a great extent, identical, anc
that the Knoxville route is the best tor us
simply lor tho re son that it is the best foi
Lot ?B for a moment suppose that tbe Chat?
tanooga route should be adopted, and examine
what would Ll.en bo our position.
Cincinnati and Louisville are unquestionably
?reat commercial rivals. By this, 1 must nol
a understood as saying that the people ol
either of those two cities are envious of the
prosperity of tho other, or would desire to sec
them overtaken by misfortune. I merely wish
to state the fact, that their geographical
position is such, that they must, ot
necessity, compete for the trade of
vast, districts of country which oro to somo
extent tributary to both. It 13 this rivalry
wbicb, when cirried on in a proper spirit, calls
forth all the energy and enterprise of both
parties, aud develops to tho utmost degree
their latent energies and resources, which
might otherwise be dlowed to lio dormant,
and thus contributes to tho increased pro?pcri
ty of both.
A glance at tbe map will convince the most
c isual observer that Louisville has, from causes
which it docs not concern us to inquire into,
placed herself lar in advance ol' Cincinnati so
far ai, railroad connectons with tho South ero
concerned, lt re <ains to be seen if, ia the
location of her proposed Southern railro d,
bho will, by a fatal mistake, give to her rival
further and undue, as they will bo irretrievable,
aa va., t.. gos in this respect.
'lhat w aithy corporation, known as tho
Louisville aud Nashville Railroad Company,
with a wiso forethought und spirit of enterprise
worthy ot all praise, has not lim-ad its opoia
t ion a to tho building ot a road botweon thc
two ci tes named na its torminal points, hut
h ia built, a road diverging at Lebanon Junc?
tion, and known os the Lebanon branch,
in a southeasterly direction, patting
through Danvillo to Mount Vernon.
Kentucky, and bavo graded tho road
as tar as Loudon, Ky. Danvillo is a stat 0.1
on the proposed line to Ctiattatoga via Chit
wood, and Loudon is a point on the proposed
route to Knoxville. At London they havo for
tbe pr. Bout ceased to push forward their road
towards Knoxville, or rather towards the State
hue of Tennessee, tvheie they will connect
with the Tennessee and Kentucky Railroad,
runo og nor.h from Knoxville. I tvouid hero
remark that this latter road is now in actual
o ler.itiou lor a dist anco of 81 m.les have 15
miles moro graded and reidy for the iron, leav?
ing only 19 unies io Pe built.
lt would thus appear lhat tho Louisville and
Nashville Riilroad Company bold Danvillo and
L union as alratcgia points, and, io my mind,
by their actions say to Cincinnati, as clearly
I as could bo said in words, "We acknowledge
that your geographical position entitles
the trade of that portion of onr State h
reedy south of your city, and we are qc
ling that yon should build,own andoom
main trunk hue running nearly due sc
Knoxville, we being content with our.
road connecting ns with your main trunk i
don; but if yon decide to diverge to the wi
compete with ns for the trade of that por
our own State, lying south of Louis vii
also to tap our own connection with (
nonga, we will extend our road from Lon
the Tennessee State line, a distance t
forty-five miles, where we will coonee
the Tennessee and Kentucky road, tnt
trolling this great trunk u?e and the
east, south and southwest of Knoxville
railroads converging at that point."
Whether I am correct or not in attrit
these sentiments to the people of Loni
there can be no doubt that they will adop
policy if Cincinnati should adopt the C
nooga route. Self-interest governs and 8
govern in all suca matters, and this poi
motive leaves no other course open to 1
ville. I have been told that the Louisvill
Nashville Railroad Company now have a
ter for this road, the estimated cost of .
is $2,100,000. and further that some years
the City of Louisville subscribed $1,000,0
wards its completion, to be paid as the
progresses. If this information is corn
would only be necessary to raise $1100.C
complete this road.
Should this road be built Cincinnati i
be connected with Knoxville by tbe roac
running to Danville, but as this adds some
to the distance, they would be compel?
self defence to extend then? road from
to London, a distance of eighty-four s
giving us tho same connections with Louii
and Cincinnati as we are now striving for,
in fact, the road wonld be upon the exact
of the proposed route from Cincinnati to S
it will thus be seen that we shall, in al
man probability, ba placed in direct rail
communication with both Cincinnati and
is ville, quite as soon as we can complet;
Bine Ridge Railroad, whatever may bc
choice of Cincinnati in locating her road.
We have, however, a direct interest ii
choice of routes to be made by Gincinnal
oar interests, as stated before, are to a g
extent identical, and it is important thai
great trank rosa through Kentucky shoul
owned and controlled by Cincinnati and no
Very little bas been said of the importt
of our connection with Louisville, lt hae
aris?n from any desire to underrate it, f
should rank as second in importance onl
onr connection with Cincinnati.
This report has already grestly exceeded
limit 1 bad proposed when I commenced,
the subject is one of vital import!
to our city and mate, and I make no a
ogv for extending it/ still farther,
order to show to our people the abso
necessity of completing tue Blue Ridge I
road wit sou: further delay. This can be
complished within two years, and before
lapse of that space of time we should, ai
hope will, be in direct communication with
great West, and reaping the bounteous
ward of years of persevering efforts to ace
plish that end.
Our efforts to form thia connection have b
stimulated by a desire to reap the advants
to be derived from tbe trade in their agri
taral products; and bat few persons in
commanity have any conception of the ext
of their manufacturing iodustry. Cincim
bas a population of about 400,000 souls, am
essentially a manufacturing city. There
scarcely a single article which we now pu rob
from the Northern and Eastern States, exe?
ing cotton fabrics, which we cannot also
tain from Cincinnati. Their interior locati
with the abundance of all the raw mater
used, gives them a very decided advant
over the Northern and Eastern ci ?es in rx
of tbe branches of manufacture. Black wah
maple, cedar, hickory, ash, and all other wo
adapted to tho manufacture of furniture, vc
oles, agricultural implements and wooden w
are here found in the greatest abondance i
of the best quality. Cedar is 'so abondant t

manufactories of furniture, one of which bac
cash capital of $2,000,000, and their premii
cover more than six acres of land. Stoves i
made in imense numbers, together with ev?
description of castings and hollow ware,
satisfied myself by actual inspection that
these two last branches they have the advt
tage over tin Northern cities, both as rogar
quality and price. Iron and coal of the bi
quality is near at band and their monldi
sand is of exceptional quality, which enab
them to prc dace castings of unusually fi
finish. Hardwire and wooden ware of eve
description, vehicles of all kinds, agricultu
implements of the most improved patten
are among the leading articles of ma

Apart from the advantage of lower prict

cars which bring us coil could bo returned

tion m ado, could bo delivered in Knoxville oi
Cincinnati al a reduction of at least 30 cents
UDOu pres'nt prices. Our road would alsc
havo its coal eira fu'ly loaded both ways,
which is au advantage that is, perhaps, nol
enjoyed by any road ouga^c? in tho transpor?

It ia doe to candor to state, that we will be
compelled to complete the Bine Bidge Railroad
without subscriptions from abroad. The cost
of a bridge across th* Ohio river is estimated
at $2,COO,000, and the balance of their means
wUl probably be exhausted hy the purchase of
the roads already built aud by filling the gap
remaining to be built.
Thia project of oonneotit g our city with Cin?
cinnati and Louisville was first inaugurated by
some of the best men and brightest inteliesti
of oar own and of the adjoining States, thirty
three years ago. We have already expended
vast sums to carry out the original design, an
enterprise, which at the time of its inception,
was the grandest that bad yet been proposed
by any people. Railroads were then in their
infancy, and it required greater boldness, and
a clearer appreciation of the future growth of
our country and of the necessities of com?
merce, as well as a greater confidence in our
resources, to inaugurate so gigantic an under?
taking at that early day, than was required at
a later oeriod to plan and build the great Pa .
Must of those who stood sponsors for this
great enterprise have passed away from the
nay scenes of this life, and their descend?
ants now occupy their places, and we should
all feel that in completing this great work, in
almost strict conformity with the original de?
sign, we are not only conferring a great benefit
upon ourselves and our posterity, but are plac?
ing the coping stone upon a monument tbat
shall endure for ages, to commemorate the
wisdom and foresight of those wise and pa?
triotic men who first dared to inaugurate so
great an undertaking.
I cannot close this report without giving ex
Ees sion to my sincere appreciation of tbe
adnes3 and good feeling towards myself and
towards our dear old city and ?tate, which was
universally evinced by all of the citizens of |
Cincinnati whom I had the pleasure of meeting.
I beg them to believe me to be entirely sincere
when I say that I hope and trust that what?
ever may be their action in this matter,
whether in accordance with, or contrary to,
my own individual opinions, honestly enter?
tained and candidly expressed, may by the re?
sult bo proven to bave been the best for their

THE BICE TIERCE QUESTION.
A correspondent of the Georgetown Times
answers the several communications that have
been pubished assailing the action of the
Charleston rice dealers. He says:
The agitation upon the subject of the rice
tierces began by the rice buyers of the city re
lusing to parchase noe with the charge for
casks added. To this the factors responded
by demanding that one quarter of a cent per
pound be then added to cover the price of the
cask, which, estimating the net ?eight of a
cask of rico at 600 lbs., would be just thc same
as the charge for the cask. To tbis demand
there was no demur, and the Bales on the first
of Alay were conducted in that manner and
ever since. As the buyers had mad* one move
towards a new system in the rice market,
another was originated by the factors. They
demanded that the deduction of 4 lbs. per cask
allowed by the public weighers for fret should
be disallowed for the future. Tben instead of
loosing $150 per cask, the planter gains 4 lbs.
of rice per cask by the new system. Now it
has boen said that it was a blind to the planter,
tor the factor to say tbat the buyer would give
i cent per lb. more for the rice. Bat any
business man can see how they eau afford to
do it. A bayer receives an order from New
York for rice at a certain limit. In New York
rica is sold without charge for cask*. Is it not
patent then that in making his estimate to fill
bis order that he must include the cost of the
cask ? In his estimate of the cost of the rice
ordered, all expenses have to be put, so that
the same il 50 or i cent per lb. are counted.
No.v does any one supp iso that a factor cogni?
zant of thia fact, would consent to a, Jp?.nf
I SI N)n*ri>ulr,nni?lf fnr *h? Of the HC6
[ buyer? Or leaving ont the fact that hens
bound to do hu best for bis patron, would be
be willing to loose his commission) on the
$150per cask on the entire rice he receives (or
sale? Another feature here presents itself.
It is well known that Georgetown rice will run
over tbe 600 lbs. per Cask, and every pound so
running over is a i cent gained by the planter.
Taking an average of ten lots of rice received
from Georgetown, the writer fines the average
is 617 lbs. per cask. This shows a gain ot 44
cents per cask for the planter.
it has been asked why is it that the buyers
is anxious for the change. I will answer simply
for tho facilitation of business. Ia all the
cities of tho United States, except Charleston
and ?Savannah, no charge for the cask is made,
end it ia merely for the sake of making thia
market correspond with the others.
