of doing any thing in a sto work sho

Hon\?abriel Bann^npis *uii?d t^de-?
livexpan sdd?ss ofefthe autj]e|t of^the
,Ashville- connection. General Cannon,
accordingly described, with bis usual
clearness and force, the important ad?
vantages that the State and this city
muat derive from the building of a rail?
road from Spartanbnrg to Ashville, by
which we should roach to the very head
of the trade pf the West. Hb said:
GENTLEMEN OF THK CONVENTION: An
othor year has rolled around, and brought
you again, to hear the report of tho
officers as to tho operations and pros?
pects of the road. Tho report of the
President, under all circumstances, is
quite satisfactory. Notwithstanding the
heavy repairs that have been made
during the year, the report shows nn iu
oome over all expenses of near $20,000;
and, no doubt, with a good crop and,fair
business next year, it will far exceed that
sum. Bat thoro is a BU bj oct which
prosses heavily upon thc friends of this
road. I mean tho extension of the samo
to Ashville, N. C. I know that the
wholo country hos been impoverished,
and wo are poor, and probably some of
you, may say, .too poor of building rail?
roads; but the great importance, yea, I
may say necessity, for extending this en?
terprise, mak.es it necessary that we be?
stir ourselves. If we cannot do much,
let each do what he is able, and I have
-ooufideuce that wo shall succeed.
We made application to tho Legisla?
ture, at its last session, for aid, and,
after mature consideration by that body,
the House passed it by moro than a two
thirds vote, and it remains in the Senate
as a part of the unfinished business, and
it is hoped that that body will pass it
through at an early day. I am also much
gratified to think that tho people of
Charleston and the South Carolina Rail?
road Company have at last began to ap?
preciate the importance of this connec?
tion. They see that a largo portion of
the most valuable trade that Charleston
formerly had has been transferred to
other markets. Twenty-five or thirty
years ago, all Western North Carolina
and a large portion of East Tennessee
enmo regularly to Charleston for their
goods. Now, I a?k any Charleston mer?
chant whoa has ho sold a bill of goods to n
merchant from either of th?se suctions?
They aro gono. We must give them fa?
cilities, and Charleston must hold out
the inducements, and they will return.
It is their natural market. This trude
will build np your road, running directly
through tho centro of the State by the
capital, thence on tho South Carolina
Railroad to Charleston.
This route has tho advantage over any
other, both us ftp dist anco, grades and
curvature' Starting from Cincinnati,
the d?8tanCC is 200 miles to Cumberland
Gap, from Cumberland Gap to Paint
Bock, (North Carolina line) 96 miles,
from Paint Rock to Spartauburg 117
miles, Spartunburg to Gol umbra 93 miles,
Columbia to Charleston 130 miles. Total
distance from Cincinnati to Charleston
4335 miles, and from Louisville to
Charleston by the French Broad, it is
only 629 miles. Charleston, has the ad?
vantage in distance ol 67. miles ovei
?Norfolk, 128 miles over Baltimore, vic
Wheeling, 119 miles' over Beaufort,
I North Carolina, and 33 miles over Wil?
mington, North Carolina. You walther
sec' "hat Charleston has so decided on
advantage over all the markets East ol
the route, that she will draw tho trade
on all opposing lines, and make their
feeders instead of drawing business
Let us now seo how it stands on th(
West side. Taking Louisville, Ken
tuoky, os the objective point, Charles tor
has the advantage in distance over Sa
vannali, via Chattanooga, of 143 miles
and via Knoxville and the Blue Ridge o
71 miles. Tho French Broad is 8 J mila
shorter than tho Blue Ridge via Knox
ville and tho Greenville Railroad. Yoi
will perceive that this route has no com
Setitor, and cannot have, io point o
istonco. Let us now see the advan
tages in cost of construction, grade ant
curvature. Coming South from Pain
Rock via Ashville, there is no gradi
over forty feet per mile, and going fron
this placo to Paint Rock, two and-a-hal
miles around Tryon Mountain, have i
grade of sixty-three feet per mile. Ni
other grade over forty feet. The curva
tare is said by the engineers to be ver
light indeed. The oost of the road iv
estimated by Major McNeil in 1836, am
again by Major Mc Call a in 1860, will b
less than $2,000,000, and when finishei
to Ashville, N. C., the whole road t<
Louisville and Cincinnati will be seourei
The Legislature of North Carolina ha
removed all restriction as to gauge; car
may, therefore, pass through with un
broken bulk. The Western extension o
tho North Caroilna Central Road is uo\
let to contraot. between Ashville am
Paint Rock, and operations commence
from Paint Rock to Morristown, on th
East Tennessee and Virginia Railroad;
distance of ll miles, the road is complet
and in running order, (this is in th
heart of East Tennessee, ono of th
floest provisiou countries ia the Unite
States.) From Morristown to Gumbol
land Gap, 51 milos, which is the rein aie

Gap and Charleston Railroad, th ev h av

any ?sane mun cnn fail to appreciate the
groat advantages offered in building tai?
extension. It is of Vital importance to
Charleston and tue South Carolina Rail?
road, as well as to Columbia. If we fail,
we loso tho advantages we now have.
Other roads are being constructed which
will take off a large portion of tho busi?
ness we now have.
We must move in this matter. There
is no such thing ns standing still-the
whole world is in motion. You either
will move forward or backward. The
St uto is reconstructed ; we must recon?
struct all business, develop the resources
of our country by propor application of
muscle and brains, and wo shall heur no
more of bard times. This link will cer?
tainly be bnilt some day-the wants of
the country demand it; but let us not
wait until other channels have boon
opened which will divert much of the
business that vre now have to other mar?
kets; it ls much easier to retain business
than to bring it back. I must close as
time will not permit further explanation
now; but at some future day I will en?
deavor to add a few remnrks on some
points of interest connected with thc en?
Greeley and tb? South.
Wo are, soys the Richmond Dispatch,
getting along swimmingly with Mr.
Greeley. Who would have thought it?
Ho is become our best friend. He
seems to rejoice over ev?ry little aigu of
prosperity in the South, and is liberal in
his advice. Much of it is very good ad?
vice; and all is to hs kindly received.
All men think a great deal of their ad?
vice, and when given it ought to bo re?
spected as a gift highly esteemed by the
giver. Mr. Greeley, however, gives much
excellent advice, and since ho is very
sincero he deserves our most friendly
sentiments. He speaks thus glowingly
of the prospects of the South:
"SPINDLES FOR THE SOUTH.-Tho egg
uogg and roast turkey of Christmas fes- j
tivity will this year represent a wide?
spread and genuine congratulation over
well-based prosperity in tho South.
When tho present crop is moved, and tho
planter receives a balance-sheet from his
merchant, he may feel himself n rich
man. His orop has rarely sold higher,
and the early part of tho season was so
favorablo that he has loss grain to buy,
less pork and oloth and leather, than
ever before. He may need moro mules;
many will indulge in a handsome pair of
carriago-hor8es; but after all reasonable
outlays there will be a great deal of sur?
plus money in the South. Will not our
brethren of the cotton belt listen to us
while wo urge them -to invest that sur?
plus not in gay horses or a new .raddle,
not in silver-mounted revolvers, Axmin?
ster carpets, or brocade silks, but in
"A fresh and brilliant career of great?
ness is open to the South if she can but
soo her true and lasting interest. To buy
laud and laborers hus boen her tradition?
al policy, her hereditary passion. La?
borers she cannot now purchase; of land
she has too much for tho wisest tillage.
Her territory is so pierced with navigable
streams that the oall for more railroad8
is uot imperative. The most sagacious
of her public men aro duly alive to tho
importance of establishing manufactures;
but all ara not informed as to what manu?
factures aro just now tho best for the
South. No part of tho earth's surface
can compete with our cotton belt in the
ease and certainty with which cottons of
long, fine, even staple, can be raised.
This grand advantage springs from our
peculiar climate, and this is determined
by geographical facts.'*
M. Lesseps, tho eminent engineer of
tho Suez ship canal, in addition to that
great work which opens a much nearer
commercial route from Eastern Europe
to China, Japan, Australia aud farther
India, proposes another which will still
further lessen the distances betweon tho
countries of tho East and West. He
suggests cutting a ship canal through
tho Isthmus of Corinth, (a neck of land
from four to eight miles wido, uniting
the Morea with Attica,) by which vessels
will be afforded ready access from tho
Gulf of Corinth to tho Gulf of ?Egina.
Tho Morea (or Peloponnesus) is a penin?
sula, 100 by 160 miles, surrounded by
the Gulfs of Patrias, Corinth aud iEgina,
and supposed to bo of tho shape of a
mulberry leaf. The name was given to
it by tho Italians, becauso of the great
quantity of mulberries whioh it pro?
duces-"more" beiug tho Italian for mul?
berry. By this canal there will bo saved
between 200 and 300 miles of water voy?
age. The cost (some $6,000,000 or $10,
000,000) is merely nominal, considered
against the advantages. The scenery
through which the canal would pass is
very interesting aud beautiful. Thero
aro numer?os remains of antiquity,
among which are tho Isthmian wall and
tho ruins of tho famous Temple of Nep?
A GOOD NOMINATION.-It will bo seen,
from tho announcement elsewhere, that
tho Conservative Committee, which met
last night, made choice of Col. John
Soreven as a candidate for Mayor at tho
approaching olootion. Tho selection is
eminently a good one, and, wo feel sure,
will prove so acceptable to tho people of
Savannah that no serious opposition will
bo mado to his election.
Tho nomination of candidates for Al?
dermen, it will be seen, was postponed
mit.il Wednesday evening next. As the
committee have mado so good a begin?
ning, we look to them confidently for a
ticket that is worthy of our oity.
