Taking tho chair, Mr. Nealo add'r.ossed
tho convention at somo longth, staling In
a forcible manner tho bonotltJ which, woujd
inevitably accrue to tho country through
whioh tho proposed road would run;,j It
would make land more valuable, by glv
ing to tho products of tho toil n good.and
eully accessible market, tbut enhancing
thoir price; it would develops, noh min
eral landt and coal 11 elds; create a manu
facturing interest ; populate the country ,
reduce freights on competing roadi, and
make an avonuo of travel of great Impor
tance to tbe country. Mr. Neale's speech
was an exhaustive argument In favor of
the proposed road, and was listened to
with attention and Interest1; and, at its
conclusion, heartily applauded.

THE A DIM! KM.
Tho committee appeared, and the con

H. Oberly, of Cairo, chairmnn of .tho com
mlttoe on address for publication, roported
tho following, which was adopted by tbe
convention, and ordered to bo published
with tho proceedings l
IMPORTANCE OF THE IIOAli.
The uccessltvof n railroad from Cairo,
Illliioli, to the Teuuofflco river, ut or near
Jousomllle, must bcappareutto all who will
give the subject any attcutlou.
The distance between Cairo aud Johnson-
vlltc does not exceed one hundred miles and
the 'road would run through a highly pro
ductive country, much of Which Is now de
prived of rallroad'ucllltlcj.
TIIK MAIN ODJECT
Of this project is lo bring the coal llclds of
Illinois, Which are very extensive, Into close
proximity to thu immenso deposits ol' Iron
ore which are in the counties ol Humphreys,
IHIclunaii aad Lewis, Tennessee. This ore ,
Is. of u'very superior iiall(y aud makes ex-
client Iron;, It 1 admirably adapted to mix
ing with the lissoiiri ore, and the two,
when lulugled, make very Una lrou aud
yield largely,. If the road should do no
other business except the trausportion of
the coal to the ore banks or .the ore to the
coal mines, It would have 'an
immense suri'LY ov fhkiuht.
A large portion ofthefrclght transported
by the Baltimore 'ami Ohio road consist of
crtal, which ainoulit6d In 1ST1 to l,!WI,WrJ tons
besides 3!0,oAo tons used by the company.
The advantage wlllch this road would have
would be that the cars would bu loaded
both wayo, carrvluir eltlier coal or Iron ore.
A LONfl LINE.
The Cairo and St. Louis road, with'a gauge
ofthree feot, will be completed during this
winter, ami when this road from Jdliiisouville
to Cairo Is built, there will be a continuous
lino of railway or tbe same gauge from the
Tennessee river, to (it, Louis, This llui- wjll
be extended through Middle Teiilie-see, In
th dlrectlou ol .Savaunah, (icorgia, aud the
route that, y 111 lie adopted will depend on
the liberality ami public spirit of the coun
ties lu Middle Tennessee. Present appear
ances Indicate that it will pass through
Columbia and Kaycttevllle towards" Hunt
vlljc, Alabama. The object Is to make
ATnitOL'lIlt LINE OV Ciikw RAILWAY
Kroui St. Louis to 'the Atlantla' and the
Gulf, by 'Which freights can be transported
at reasonable rates.
CnAl KUEKIUT3.
Uallroads constructed for not more than
tl'2100 per mile-, uud operated at oiie-lhlrd
less expense thau ruilroads as at present
constructed, can ,all'ord to transport lrelght
at much lower rates thau arc now charged.
TllttOUlili 1IUHINESS.
ThU road is Intended to tie a part of an
extensive lino of railway whlcli' wlicir com
pleted will do a"very heavy amotml or
through bil.slit'essjMjtit
THE LOCAi: AllVANTAOKS
Oflhls road would be very great even if It
never became part of a great through lino.
' i DISTANCES.
..from Cairo toXu'slivllle, by. till road, the
distance would be only l"i tailrs ; from
Paris to iNashvllle,,iw lu(le ; from Purls to
t. Louis 2.10 miles; Trout Parfs tpPaducah
tW miles; from Paris tp Cairo "Q,inlle,
.It thus nppeanij.that the dUtnuee .between
many important places will ,be much lets by
tlili route than iy the routes uow In ,ute. As
nu illustration ol tills It limy be stated that
While it.ls 133 in'il'es from Parl.H to N'asUvllle
by MelCenzle, It will be only 103 miles by
thfs iirojcctcd road. Similar remarks may
be made as to all other places on the line 'ol
the road.

There It'tKJthlng strango or mysterious
lu the manner In which railroads, enrich
countries. It Is done by cheapening the
cost ol transportation ' to market of all
articles produced, cither on farms, in facto
ries, or u wines. Tho real value of land de
pends, 'not only IdIi tbcaraouut It produces
but also upon, tho facility 'of getting pro
ductions to good markets ut cheap rates.
Land thirty miles from a railroad Is not
wortii inoio than half ai much ns laud yield
ing the saliio amount of productions lying
two, three, or even llvc'iiillcs from a rail
road. The difference In the cost of trans
portation to market makes laud close to a
railroad more valuablo than land remote
from a railroad.
INCREASE IN VALVE OV REAL ESTATE.
The whole cost of this road from Johnsou-
vfllc to Cairo will riot exceed 1,200,000, and
the country through which It Will run It now
wortii $8,000,000, and when this road It com
pleted, will be worth not lest thau IJ,
000,000.
i THE MEANS TO lll'lt.U.
It Is Idle to. say thun that tberu are not
sufficient means to build thy road. There
maybe a want or will and determined action,
butthere is uuwuut or ability. The Increase
In the value of the property on the line or
this road, caused by Its construction, will
bo three timet as much us the entire cost or
the road.
AS AN INVESTMENT
We believe It will pay, on account or Its
small cost and light running expenses, to
gether with the heavy' buslnets It mint do
Inthc transportation or freights, to say noth
ing of lis passenger business.
These are sonitof the consideration which
cause us to recommend tills road to Uit
favorable consideration or the people along
Inline, and also Ui capitalist who ure seek
lug safe Investments.
