JAN13. H..?. flUARPSUT.............laDIior, NEW O@I, ATEA, JUNE 33, 1SIT. The New York SBts, more prompt than other daily journals of that city, renders full justice to our State securities and to the wise and honest administration which has attracted capital and induced permanent investment therein. The following reference to our consols and financial system evinces the Sun's just and intelligent View of this subject: Not long ago the mmense natural r eource. of tiuisiana were deesi d by a careful corre spondent of the t,. With good government gnd an honest flnanohI.|polJt . Lousiana oai. harl r fal to prosper. We observe In some of our Rtepubiiean contemporaries a dispositlonl to ieprociate oulslana seurltles by clasing them with the bonds of htates ehioh have made no adequate provision for the payment of in terest and the rode. ptlon of princlpal. This ar~i.in either from tgnornnoe or from malfee. The h.nded debt of the Htate is limited by the constitution to 15i,000,00. In point of fa t it is hardly over $11,u0O0,. By the prosent funding system the only contltutional bonds slsuable are the copsols, the Interest on whlobh dons not depsnd up i any legislative approprlation. The appropriation is alredy made by aeonstitat l iprovision setting aside for the purpose a tax, ent beyond the reach of anyt or department of the government T h. deposited, as soon as ollectcd, with thbank whloh ot as the 8tate's iscal Agent an whic has al ready guaranteod _the payment of the Jay and January interest. We ntierlal napprehension for the credit of Loulslana. TIer ggreat natural wealth and the economical an I honest administration of Goy. Nicholls should tlie her securities good stand ing in the markets. An auparent attempt to bear those senuritie is the ooosslon of these re marks. The owners of houses, and all people engaged in trade, complain of the hard times and pathetically inquire when there will be a change, a revival of business and hope in this city. We can answer this inquiry by saying "when the stock subscription of the New Orleans* Paclfio railroad Is com pleted to the sum demanded to render that enterprise a speedy certainty." Considering that there are seventeen millions on deposit in our banks,we mar vel that a week's delpy should occur in making up the comparativelysmall sum required by the managers to fulfill their pledges to the people to complete this road in time to particlpate in next sea son's business. The mere assurance of such a result will Impart new life to every branch' of trade and business, attract new cap ital, increase immigration and give enhanced value to every species of pro perty. Capitalists and property holders of New Orleans, rouse yourselves from your lethargy and lend a hand to bring back the trade which belongs to this city and has been diverted from it as a result of that lethargy and lack of enterprise; go to the meeting to-night at St. Pat rick's Hall and aid by all means in your power the president and directors of the New Orleans Pacific in their patriotic efforts to build that great road. It is decidedly refreshing for Presi dent Hayes to intimate that he will not interfere in any manner with the due process of law in Louisiana in the mat ter of the prosecution of Johnson and Dibble. The Radical policy of central izing all governmental power through out the Union in the Federal govern ment has been so vigorously pursued since the war that the minds of the people have become completely mud dled upon the subject of the constitu tional division of power between the States, as qualified sovereignties, and the nation, as the agent of those sov ereignties in respect to certain well-de fined purposes of government. But the old Radical party, with all of its "higher law" notions and State-destroy ing schemes, has been completely routed. The Republic has been made fast to its old moorings, the constitution is now in force in all of its pristine vigor and Mr. Hayes and future presidents will find that Louisiana, like other Southern States, is as far beyond the control of the Federal administration as is New York or Massaohusetts; and will attend to her domestic affairs and prosecute criminals to her heart's con tent without so much as saying "by your leave." We have had occasion before to no tice the eminent qualities of U. S. Grant as a writer of English. We find, how ever, that we have never done him full justice. The recent letter of Mr. Grant to Mr.Childs,descrlbing the workings of his noble heart and powerful brain, under the pressure of English snobbery, is simply sublime. He says: I love to see our country honored and respne tod abroad, and 1 am proud to belleve that it is by most all nat ions, and by some even loved. It has always been my desire to see all jealousies between England and the United 8tates abated and every sore heated. They ara more power ful for the spread of commerce and civiization than all others combined and can do more to remove causes of wars by creating mutual in t'"rests that would be so much destroyed by war. Now, the touching patriotism which glows throughout this eloquent expres sion of condescending interest in "our country," in one who has given so much talent, self-denying labor and unre quited energy to its service, is beautiful. It even suggests an increase of salary, a gift from the bankers, or some paid up stock, you know. But when we are given in the closing paragraph the sweet picture of "jealousies between England and the United States abated and every sore healed"--as being "more powerful for the spread of commerce and civilization than all others com bined"-we feel how great a thing is the English language-when well used! A PAYING INVESTMENT, Yesterday an advertisement, signed by a formidable 'list of New York c apitalists, appeared in one of our local papers, inviting those having funds to - Invest to subscribe to the four per cent funded loan of the United States. Op portunities for profitable and at the same time safe investments are growing so rare that this four per cent loan is quite popular, and a portion of it will be promptly taken up in the different olties of the Union. It would be singu lar, however, if this offer should find any takers in New Orleans, where an opportunity is presented for a safe in vestment far more profitable to the subscribers and of inoalculable impor tance to the welfare of our city and IState. We refer to the New Orleans Pacific Railway. We have heard no well-informed per son deny that this road, it completed, would control a large trade for this city. But it has been held, and still is believed by some of our fellow-citizens that the cost of building, equipping and operat ing the road will be so great that invest ors in its stock cannot derive as large a rate of interest from their money as they would if they invested in other enter prises. We understand and concede the soundness of the principle upon which this objection is based, and if the assumption were correct the road when completed would certainly fail to con fer the benefits expected from it. But, unless figures are false, trade and geo graphical relations incomprehensible and human judgment deranged, the as sumption that'the road will not pay is utterly untenable. COST OF THI ROAD. We find that the most exaggerated and, in some instances, the most prepos terous ideas of the cost of building a railroad from this city to Shreveport and Marshall prevail. It will cost ten millions, we are told, and we are referred for proof of this exaggerated statement to the cost of the construction of other lines, and the estimates made for the building of the Backbone road in the flush days of railroad building and squandering anterior to the great crisis of 1873. But there is no sense in calcu lating the cost of building a railroad in 1877 upon estimates made in 1873, or the cost of work to be done by well known and honest business men upon estimates made for the same work by rings, spec ulators and politicians whose purpose was to make vast sums of money and who expected the Legislature and Con gress to pay their estimates. Major Greene, after a careful survey of the route of the New Orleans Pa ciflo and months of observation, with much of the heavy work progressing under his eye, has furnished the pub lie, through a report to the directors of the company, with a carefully prepared estimate of the total cost of this enter prise, to which we invite general atten tion. Major Greene is an eminent and experienced engineer and certainly would not be guilty of the folly of making a grossly inaccurate estimate of such a work and, by so doing, damage his well-earned professional reputation. The figures with which he furnishes us in his report of the cost of this road may therefore be safely accepted by the public. The road, when completed from Bayou Goula to Shreveport and Marshall, will be 288 miles in length. Major Greene, estimating in detail the cost of the sev eral divisions of the road, the grading, bridging, superstructure laid down complete, shops, stations, etc., sums up the total cost of the completed road from Bayou Goula to Shreveport and Marshall at $3,537,600; estimating the purchase price of the completed road from this city to Bayou Goula at $750,000, the completed line from New Orleans to Shreveport and Marshall would thus cost the company $4,287,600. In his estimate of the cost of the road from Bayou Goula northward, Major Greene makes no mention of rolling stock; but he includes an estimate of $229,880 for shops, stations, section-houses, etc., not more than half of which will be required for these pur poses until some time after the comple tion of the road, while the other half will be ample to furnish the road with an equipment sufficient for all imme diate purposes, and which can be in creased as the business of the road increases. The striking and irrefutable fact then is presented to the public that the New Orleans Pacific Railway can be built and equipped from New Orleans to Shreveport and Marshall for four millions two hundred and eifght!,-seven thousand six hundred dollars. This road, completed at this price, will be the cheapest railroad in the United States, the average cost of building and equipping our existing roads having been twenty-eight thousand dollars per mile. But the remarkably low estimate of the cost of this road is easily ex plained. The country presents great advantages for railroad build ing; much of the work has been done and will continue to be done by cheap convict labor; much other labor will be required and employed, but the cost of grading has been re duced fifty or sixty per cent. Besides this, the cost of material has been immensely reduced. Thus, iron rails formerly cost eighty dollars per ton; now steel rails may be purchased for fifty dollars per ton; the class of loco motives which formerly cost $15,000 are now worth only $8000; box cars for merly cost $800, now the price is but $400. Everything else pertaining to railroad building has undergone a sini lar reduction. It is very easy to see from these figures how a railroad, the estimated cost of which was ten mil lions five years ago, may now be con structed for about four millions. WILL IT PAY? Now, then, the important question arises: Will the New Orleans Pacific Railway, when completed, pay a fair interest or profit on the, say, four mil lions and a quarter, invested in its construction? English capitalists were tempted to invest vast sums of money ia the rotten bonds of Turkey, capti. vated by six per cent interest; the ruling rate of interest in England is four per cent, and English-Amerioan investors are expected to subscribe heavily to the four .per cent loan of the United States. Eight per cent interest on a permanent safe investment would be a captivating scheme in any country; shrewd business men will risk millions on an investment which promises ten per cent. At a very low esti mate of the business of the New Orleans Pacific, it will pay its stock holders fifteen per cent on their invest ments. The last report of the Texas Pacific Company showed that the net earnings of their road from Shreveport, in this State, to Dallas, Texas, were in 1876, $*060 per mile. The net earnings of the New Orleans and Jackson road, we are unoffi cially informed, amounted last year to $2000 per mile. The Texas and Pacific last season transported 050,000 bales of cotton, 150,000 of whioh went by rail to St. Louis and the East. The earnings of a railroad from New Orleans to the eastern terminus of the Texas Pacific would certainly earn as much as the Texas road. It would share four fifths of the business of the Texas road and draw a large trade from the coun try east of Red River and an immense patronage from southwestern Arkansas; besides this, it w uld develop a large business along its line. This is an im portant item in the estimate, since seventy per cent. of the business of many roads is local business, created along their lines. In this connection it is important to observe that the New Orleans Pacific, when built, can be operated at a much less cost than the Texas Pacific. Owing to the heavy grades of the latter road, a forty ton lo comotive can only draw a train of fifteen loaded cars; while the engineers affirm that the grades of the New Orleans road will enable such a locomotive easily to draw a train of forty-five loaded cars. Thus, if our figures and statements are correct, and we believe they are, it is evident that the New Orleans Pacific will earn as much per mile as the Texas Pacific; but let us say in round num bers six hundred and forty-five thousand dollars., or about two thousand dollars per mile, or fifteen per cent on four millions and a quarter of dollars. We present these statements and figures to the public because we believe them to be fair and reasonable, and we do not believe they can be refuted. In deed, we think they do not tell the whole truth. We believe the road will pay a much larger profit than we have worked out; but we would rather make an under-estimate than an exaggerated one. Be that as it may, our facts and figures are before the public for exam ination, and we hope that every man who has the progress of New Orleans and the prosperity of the State at heart and a dollar to invest, will examine and scrutinize this article and talk to the engineer, the president and direc tors of the road, and with his fellow citizens, about this enterprise. The road is essential to the commerce and growth of New Orleans and it offers an oppor tunity for the profitable investment of several millions of dollars. Why, then, should it not be built ? PRESIDENT HAYES AS OLIVER TWIST What Mr. Joseph Pulitzer means by his elaborate and very peculiar letter descriptive of President Hayes' policy (printed in the DEMOCRAT of yesterday); whether it is written in bitter irony to expose the President's ingratitude and inconsistency, or in covert commenda tion and approval, will puzzle all inge nious minds. We think, however, that the President's champions may be able to deduce from the statement and the conclusrons of this mystical German a logical process through which the force of much of the satire of Pulitzer is greatly weakened. Pulitzer's main proposition is that Hayes got into the presidency through the fraud of his own party; that he is the conscious receiver of sto len goods; that he has administered these goods in the interest of the party from which they were stolen ; that he has made a "dead corpse" of the principal thief and has, while excluding Samuel J. Tilden from physical possession of the place to which he was justly enti tled, installed therein the spirit of which that eminent citizen was the in adequate embodiment. He has done more than that; he has expelled the chief perpetrators of the fraud of the party in the electoral villainy; has bro ken the spell of the bloody shirt and silenced the cry of "rebel," etc. To all of which the supporters of Hayes have this ready and logical answer: The President of the United States does not receive the office, nor does he administer it, as a mere personal gift, purchase or endowment, nor is he expected or required by any ethical law to recognize any obligations of grat itude towards the party or towards indi viduals who may have aided in elevat ing him to this position, by whatever methods. His highest and strongest obligation is to recognize and carry out the will of the majority of the people of the United States; the office he has obtained, by what ever means, is a trust or agency which he must administer with fidelity to the expressed will of his mandatories, who are the majority of the people. That majority declared itself in favor of the installation of the spirit and body of Samuel J. Tilden in the White House, but the body of Samuel, small as it is, had not the spirit to force itself therein, and Hayes, having been shoved through the window on the shoulders of Morton, Conkling and the rest, takes possession and concludes to stay and so administer the property that Tilden's friends shall have no grounds of com plaint. The rascals who used him as Bill Sykes, old Fagan and the rest did Oliver Twist, when they pushed him through the transom that he might open the door to the "big burglars," should be foiled in their felonious de signs. Little Oliver turned traitor, as did Hayes, peached on his principals, and sought to condone his involuntary agency in the burglary by assisting to defeat and punish their nefarious plot. Now, was not such treachery a moral duty of Oliver and President Hayes ? How else could he repair the wrong done to the people and prevent the de feat and the diverdion of the trust which Mr. Tilden was entitled to but failed to assume and discharge, unless he administered the" same in the spirit in which Tilden was instructed to ad minister it? And was it not the first requirement of his mandate that he should make corpses of the gang of which Morton, Blaine, Butler, Cameron et al. were the Bill Sykeses and Fagans ? THE WAR IN THE EAST. As far as we can jadge, from the ob scure accounts which reach us from the scene of war around the Black Sea, the Turks are having a hard time of it. On the extreme left of their extended line they have had a terriblydisastrous time with the Montenegrins in the attempt to revictual Nicsic, where a Turkish garrison has been long cut off from com munication. This was a vigorous at tempt and indicated both dash and mil itary skill in the Turkish leaders. There are different accounts of its result. Some say the Turks succeeded; other accounts represent it as a disastrous failure. All agree that the Turkish forces were fearfully cut up by the hardy and agile Montenegrins, the best fighters in that whole region of coun try. But whether successful or not in their immediate object, the Turks are certain to be worsted in the end. Their victory will not only draw the Montene grins, but also the Servians, into this promiscuous fight. And the Servians, backed by Russia, clamor to Austria to come to their aid. These countries lie adjacent to Austria, and her Belavic populations are very impatient under Austria's neutral and timid policy. On their right flank, east of the Black sea, the Tu*s appear to have had nothing but disaster and losses. Now and then they kill many thousand Rus sians and repel assaults on Kars and other fortified places with murderous effect. But these reports are quickly followed by others of retreats, aban donments of position and the cutting off of detachments sent to flank advancing bodies of Russians, who appear in the end to be slowly and surely enveloping the whole of Armenia. It is the old story of our war and of the French and German war. Gen. Pillow, after the first day's fight at Fort Donaldson, telegraphed us: " We are driving the enemy before us with the bayonet." The next telegram was to this effect: "Our whole army capitulated to Grant. Floyd and I escaped." We fear that the Turkish Moukhtars, All Pachas, Suleimans and Mehemets are very much of the too sanguine and ardent temperament of our old friend Pillow. The Russians, on the other hand, command our respect for their adhe rence to the Gradgrind philosophy: " Facts, gentlemen, facts is what we want." TO THE SUMMER TOURIST. Those of our citizens who are fortunate enough to to able to setk respite from the laborsof the business season Just closed, and to recuperate their energies at some of the many delightfu summer resorts to be found mn the Northern States and Oanada, will be glad to learn that the old favorite Jackson route, under a vigorous and efficient management, has become one of the very best traveling thoroughfares in the country. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been expended, as we are crrdibly informed, during the past twelve months for new iron and steel rails, new orces-ties and new bridges, and to.day it may be safely said that no road south of the Ohio river surpasses the great Jackson route in smoothness anl prfect safety. We have had occasion, during the past few weeks, to travel quite extensively over that road, and we can thus, from actual experience. hear witness to its ex cellence in every particular which goes to consti tute a good road.
