At half-past 2 o'clock, the President
of tho Chamber, Theo. Cook, Esq.,

stated, iu a few words, the object of

address the merchants substantially
I beg leave, in behalf of tho com?
mittees whom I have the honor of
j representing, to return you, Mr. Pre
\ sulent and gentlemen of the Chamber
I of Commerco of Cincinnati, their
sincere thanks for the favor of being
allowed to address and consult with
you hero to-day. Tho subject which
wo present to you for your considers
I tion is one in which i believe we all
have a common interest, und one
which tho welfare and prosperity of
tho whole people almost. I might
say, absolutely demands.
Nearly forty years ?go, a distin?
guished citizen of a neighboring
State, a gentleman of great financial
and business capacity, with a keen
eye peering into tho future of oui
great country, told us in South Caro
lina that Cincinnati, then compara
tively a small place, situated on th?
I banks of the Ohio, a rivor which, lo
said, dried up in summer and wa:
! frozen over in winter, would, at n<
\ distant day, la- the queen city ant
great commercial centre of the West
i Ho told us that, by thc eonstruetioi
j of a railroad, we would be enabled t<
j draw closer together, in the bonds o
I social, political and commercial inte
j rests, two great cities, Cincinnati an?
Charleston; andiu obedience to tites*
I views, we aro hero to-day to see if th
I bauds cannot be drawn closer, and si
j welded together that time nor oir
! cumstancos can intercept us from th
i desired end.
Since the time of the arrival ii
! this city of thc delegation, whom
hilve thc honor to represent, we hav
ascertained that your views in regar
I to the project do not exactly harmoi:
j izo with those heretofore eutertaine
j by the committee, and had I bee
unaided, T would not have laid befor
you tho views entertained by the pee
pie of South Carolina As it is,
feel a delicacy in presenting thom t
the Chamber as a body, knowing th:
we do not entirely agree in our view:
Nevertheless, by your kindness,
will state briefly tho details of th
subject, which we were sent to lay lu
Our especial scheme at present i
the construction of what is called tl
Blue Ridge Railroad line. This ron
commences at the town of Andersen
S. C., and is intended to run throng
to Knoxville, Tenn., whore it wi
terminate in a connection with tl
Knoxville and Kentucky Railroad,
f The length of this road is li
I miles, or in round numbers, for coi
venionce sake, we will call it 2(
miles. Tlc condition of tho rout
amouut of monoy .subscribed and e
pended, Ac.,, I will explain to you i
a moment. Tho original estimate
cost of thc railroad was S7,.r>00,00
I or about $37,500 per milo. No otb
road was ever built across the inou
tains that cost less than 8(50,000 p
mile, and having a grado of not le
than seventy feet to tho milo. Tl
Blue Ridge Road will have a grut
going East of forty-five feet to tl
mile, and going West of sixty fet
Those figures aro plain truths, and
address you upon the subject as b
siness men, oras one business mt
endeavoring to make a trade with a
other. I am neither a politician ii
public speaker-I am merely a rn?
chant, and desire to deal with you
a body ns 1 would with a single in?
vicinal. It Mould be vain, if ri
wicked, to expect of you to do an
thing contrary to your own inter?s
and it would be wrong in von to
that for our welfare which, as bu
ness mon, would not enhance, evei
it was not detrimental to your ow
It would be impudent in me to a
you todo so, unless 1 could showy
that you were making a good bargi
for yourselves. If I fail in convi]
ingyou of this, then I should expi
you to dismiss the subject from yo
minds at once.
The estimated cost of the und
taking, as I have already said, at 1
timo the original surveys were mai
was $7,500,000, and the grade will
far less than that of any other rt
road over constructed over the mot
tains. In connection with this, he
ever, you will naturally ask. "WI
have your own people done towt
the furtherance of tho object?"
will teil you in a very few words.
Nearly thirty years ago, when
population of Cincinnati did not
ceed 25,000 persons, you burnell b
fires and illumimated houses at
prospect of this railroad coniim
cation being established. I am
director of that same corporation
whom you burned bonfires tin
years ago, and ?un here to talk to ;
on the same subject. At that ti
the proposed line was called tl io (
cinnati, Louisville and South Car
na Railroad, and your city gran
the Company a charter " At t
~*m****<" " i ililli* Iii i lhil.HU
tim? the State of South Carolina do?
nated to the object $1,000,000, and
endorsed the bonds of the Company
for $2,000,000, -while the people sub?
scribed $1,600,000 more, and the
work was commenced. The great
financial calamities which befell the
whole country in 1837-38, however,
brought tho enterprise to an unex?
pected end. In 1851 L-0 object waa
revived, and work was again com?
menced under tho auspices of thc
same corporation. The States of
?orth Carolina, Tennessee and Geor?
gia came forward at that time and
granted charters to the incorpora tors.
The people of these States subscribed
$i,300,000, Charleston donated an?
other $1,000,000, while privato sub?
scribers through tho State came for?
ward with $500,000. This made ar
I aggregate of nearly $7,500,000. whicL

' the enterprise, which would have
been carried through to a snccessfu
end, had it not been for the financia
crisis of 1837-38, and other difficul
ties which could not be overcome
Notwithstanding the difficulties to b<
I encountered alf that time, however
the Company succeeded in construct
ing thirty-four miles of the road
including masonry, tunneling, &c

very heavy and the time occupied i
I the same is very lengthy. By tl
construction of the railroad which v

miles nearer tho centre of the Soul

j THE CRISIS IN* EUROPE.- War be- j
j tween Austria and Prussia has vir- 1
j tually begun, although a formal do- !
duration of war has not yet been .
! made. The Prussians having entered i
j the Duchy of Holstein, invited tho'
I Austrian commanding general to ra-:
i establish a joint. Governm? ul tor j

j dined by Austria, the Prussians ra?
pidly advanced, in order to occupy?
; tho whole Duchy. The Austrian
General, being instructed not to fire
j tho first shot under any circumstances,
; withdrew the whole of bis command
j into Hauover. On the 12th of Juno,
1 tho Prussians were in peaceful pos- j
; session of the whole Duchy. Cn thc
I 11th, they had forcibly dispersed tho j
I Holstein Estates, which, in accord- !
i ance with the invitation of the Aus?
