ubstandai T rail. To taaVexteot it is fin
ished and in running condition, and bw
locomotive, tender and freight car npon it.
The grading is finished nearly to Troy, a
distance of fourteen miles from tbe river,
while'enffieienfc iran ia lying in Elwood, at
this tnrminus of the road, to lay four or
five miles in addition to what is already
down. The understanding and condition
upon which thepeoplt of St.Jeseph voted
to give the bonds of the 'city to aid this
corporation, was that as each five miles of
the road bed should be completed and
ready for the superstructure, the city would
deliver to it 25,000 of her bonds, to tie
applied to the purchase of railroad iron,
chairs .aid spikes for thai road.
In compliance, with these terms, that
amount of bonds has already be.en deliver
ed and a like sum is in the hands of the
citv Treasurer, to be delivered on the com
pletion of another five miles. To purchase
c the iron not yet laid down, the bonds all
ready delivered were pledged as collateral
security and the time of payment has ex
pired, but those to whom the money was
due agreed to an extension of time upon
payment of the interest on the bonds, for
?rhichthe sum of $l't500, now in the city
Sreasury, has been appropriated, and will
be paid. The St. Joseph and Denver City
railroad is of great importance 10 us. If.
we succeed in building it our exertions
und expenditures will be amply repaid by
the increase of trade, and the enhanced
value of our real -estate. If it fails, whit
we have inves'ed in it may be lost. We
may be successful, andj-certahily justi
fies a strong effort I do not mean, howev
er tnatJt. Joseph aloi.ecan build this road,
but that by getting others interested who
have the capital, it can be done. It will
0 rcyuiro no grat.anieuit of money to com
plete it to Troy, the county seat of Doni
phan county, Kansas, which, as T have al
ready stated, is about 14 miles west of the
Missouri river. At this point, in the opin
ion" of. some, persons with experience in
fetich matters, it will be self sustaining. It
"will then offer inducements for the wealthy
and enterprising to take hold. To secure
that end, the city being the largest stock
holder, will no doubt transfer to any re
sponsible persons obligating themselves to
construct the road a specified distance,
and run it a specified time a part or the
whole of her stock.
That this road if completed, would pay,
is beyond doubt. Glance your eyes over the
tf map of the United States, and you will-find
it would be an extension of that1 great Cen
tral Trunk of Railroads, which hugging
the parallel of 40 degrees, passes from Phil
adelphia, next through the Capitals and
hear.s ui the great States of Pennsylvania,
Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, striking the
Mississippi at Quiney or Hannibal, and
the Missouri at St. Joseph. It being the
direct aud shortest railroad route west
xhrough such a mighty empire of wealth
and population, would alone make it riot,
while from its western terminu's would pour
in an unbroken stream, the trade. and travel
of the Far West, and the commerce of
the prairies." "
ThePacific Railroad Bill is now pend
ing irJCongress, and! hope will soon pass,
making the river opposite our city, a term
inus. The same reasons which induce mo
to believe" that a railroad west from here
would be highly remunera ive, show with
equal torce the propriety, and' that it would
be Jo the interest of our (xovernment to
locate the main stem or a branch of the
Pacific Railroad upon tbe river bank, op
posite our city. Wc are upon the direct
Sine of the great thoroughfare from East
to Wjfet. We have a straihter and short-
' f;r line o railway communication with the
.great centres of commerce atd, wealth in
the East, than any city or town on the
Missouri river. Finish the road across
-the peninsula, formed by the Illinois and
Mississippi rivers, and it is almost a direct
line from here- to the cities of Baltimore
and Philadelphia. Marysville, though not
more than lpty miles distant,- is not more
than five miles from a straight line west,
while Denver City and the newly discover
ed pass in the Rocky' Mountains, are very
nearly due west irom that place. Besides
this our St Joseph and Denver City road,
being narllhuiU, if accepted by the-GjoY-erament,
weald' save time and perpaps
