Detroit to Now Orleans, vrhich Ims been
opened up by means of tho Cairo and Vin.
cennes railroad and of tho advantages
which thii lino cannot fail to rIvo to tho
two cities named ai well at to Cairo. The
distance from Cairo to Detroit by this
route Is ono "hundred and twentv.flvo
mllos loss than by tho way of Chicago.
A Dotroit it ono of tho most Important
canters of trado for tho Northwest and
Now Orleans "represents tho trudo de

which brings thorn in closer connoction
than any other it of vast importanco to
both and of no less importanco to Cairo,
m tho torminus of tho railway lino on tho
North and tho hoad of opon xvator In tho
Mississippi at all seasons of tho yoar. An
effort Is now boinc; imulo by tho mer
chants of Detroit to establish direct trado
between that city and Now Orleans. .Mr
AVm. M. lturnell, secretary of tho New
Orleans chamber of commerce, recently
wroto a communication on the sub
ject which whs brought bolero
tho Detroit board of trado for
the consideration of that body.
Wo havo spaco only for n part of tho
communication, that bearing directly
upon tho advantages which tho Cairo and
Viuccnncs road, as a connecting Jink be.
tweeu Detroit and Nuw Orleans, must
bring to tho two cities und the importauco
which Cairo assumes us a point of concen
tration for tho commerce of tho entire
Northwest on its way to tho Gulf, and
Irom thenco to distant and foreign ports :
Tho railroad system but recently com
plutud hat connected '.,w Orleans with
Uotroit, us you will seu from a schedule
accompanying this, letter, by s journey vU
Louisville oi only lilty-soven hours, llu

uiiijger ana insurance on thu coasts of

the consideration that on thu inboard routo
your freights go to tho credit of our West

If tbee views shall induco vour mer
chants to look to Now Orleans in their
port of communication with Spnni.li
.America, will not the same reasoning in
tluenco your neighbors and customers of
Western Canada '
I have soon that Montroal desires a lino
of steamers to Jamaica. Could not that
c ity for almost half tho year emplov tho
New Orleans and tho Detroit route in pre
ference' It Is already organized. Thoro
U already an agency which will sign ,
through bills by rivur and rail between
these two points. Will not tho Grand
Irunk railroad connect with this system
and carry fruits and grocerie., at lest in

In anothar issue, thev-samo paper tajs
on the (.line subject;
"We are not disposed to overlook the ad.
vautages which tho new road offers to
commerce between this port and tho com
mercial metropolis of Michigan. Hither
to our relations with that neutral .iin,,
fc anil the Canada have been maintuined by
Bvwaof Chicago chiefly, which is one bun-
I " anu iwonty.uve miles further than
vv now route via Vincennes, IVacti
cally, tho region of country roferrod to,
and which is rich in its productive re
sources, has boon abut off from any direct
trade with Now Orleans and tho
Southwest, l'rom Cairo to Dotroit via
Chicago was scarcely much bettor than
from Now York to Detroit.
Tho Cairo and Vincennes road has rem
edlod nil thoso objections, and lias ostab
llshed n lino of communicntion which
must always bo tho best for Indiana, Ohio,
Michigan and Lower Canada, bocniiku It
is a direct lino penetrating thoso States
and connecting them with tho .Mississippi
Hivor at n point which is nover embar
rassed by ico. It is sufo to predict that
hencoforth tho cntiro colleo and sugar sup
ply of tho .Stales namod will bo obtained
In Now Orleans by direct purchases, car
ried by our river tonr.ngo to Cairo, and
thus by tho nxv rail routo through tho
great railroad center, Indianapolis, to all
important points on tho lines dlvorglng
therefrom.
This new rail routo further enhances
our facilities of communication with Now
York, Philadelphia nml Hoston. 1'iing
tho rivor to Cairo not only will minimum
rates of freight bo obtaine'd nn all heavy
commodities, but shipment can bo inado
daily, tho shlppor receiving his bill of la
ding overy evening, and upon which bo
may reallzo as is customary, instead of
weekly, as is now cenorally'the oso.
