LEAVEHWOETHAHD THE SMOKY HILL
The energy displayed on the Pacific Railroad
ince Samuel Uallett & Co., took charge, has
inspired our people with confidence in its early
completion. They have regarded its construc
tion as a question of lime, and 'therefore cannot
but rejoice that the time 'is toTjc improved, and
"the rights and privileges of the Company, -which
the past summer's inactivity rendered certain of
forfeiture, are secured. Laborers are being placed
upon the road as fast as obtained, and "every
exertion is being put forth to increase the num
ber. Contrabands are placed at work upon the
road immediately upon their arrival in the land
, While the picks and shovels of this enterprise
are being vigorously plied, the "wind" portion
of other railroad projects is -in active operation
Senator Pomeroy.facetioiisly styled the " Father
of Kansas Railroads," has recently had aTreeep
tion at Atchison, at which he made a Railroad
speech. It is full of extravagant Assertions, all
very flattering to Atchison, but 'in the absence
of any visible substantial backing, not so much
so to those alonr the proposed routes. One of
these projects, the withdrawal of lands for -which
wernoticed a few weeks ago, is the Atchison and
Pike's Peak Railroad. This, the Senator says,
will be 'completed to the Republican river, a
distnnceof-one-hundred and twenty-five miles,
within sixteen months. 1 ho other is the Atchi
eon and Santa Fe. Railroad. This latter is i
visonary thing only. - Both are rival to the Pa
cific Railroad, or Kaw .Valley route. The one
is intended to tap the Pike's Peak trade, and the
other that ofifew Mexico. and the Southwest.
An incentive is afforded by this proposed sys
tem of Railroads to the energy and enterprise of
Leavenworth. The Smocy Hill mute to Denver
brings'that place one hundred and forty miles
nearer Leavenworth than any other point on the
riyer. The Smoky Hill route to Santa Fe is
shorter from Leavenworth than the old Santa Fo
route. Here arc two immense trades that she
can control, the one for a few years at least, that
is, admitting the Pike's Peak project to be upon
a stable basis, and the other for all time, by
using, evtraoiilinnry efforts in pushing forward
the Union Pacific Railroad.
. It seems to be universally admitted that the
building of a road across the Northern tier to
intersect the Kaw Valley Road, will liave a
tendency to drive that Road from the Republican
Valley out the Smoky Hill. And herein lies the
advantages to Leavenworth. That city possesses
'the wealth and influence sufficient to push
road westwardly superior to any other place on
the river. The Union Pacific Railroad will be
completed to Junction within one year, and
from this, point westward Leavenworth should
use her utmost efforts in pushing ft on, mile for
mile at least with any competing route. It will
tap both these trade, and as her arm stretches
he will continue to hold them. -
This Atchison scheme will work to the detri
ment of the Republican Valley, should the
iUnion Pacific Railroad Compauy refuse to inter
sect. Fifty or sixty miles of the Valley will then
be without a Railroad, and the trade of this
is to-be populous and wealthy section will -cone
to Junction and other towns on the Kaw valley
The fates seems to point out the Smoky Hill
Valley us the legitimate channel of intercourse,
Even should the Railroad remain stationary
A while after the completion of its fiist hundred
miles, theidimenso Santa Feand Colorado trains
-will seek the Smoky Hill.
Faultis found with that part of the route to
Santa Fe lying between the Smoky Hill and
Fawnee Rock, which can and will be bettered
-with the attractions which a Railroad will afford.
and the timidity jof freighters in passing over
strange 'roads will be removed by the same
magic influence. Concerning the route to Colo
rado, we'find the following in the Leavenworth
Bulletin; . ,
From an article in the Denver News, stating
that the Pacific Railroad -bad been commenced
here, we take the following extracts :

J By tlio way, will our Leavenworth cotempo

in the opening of the new road from Leaven
worth to Denver by way of the Salina Valley?
We have heard nothiug of this work for some
jreks; and as it was given out here by .Mr.
Adams that immediate steps would be taken to
commence the enterprise on his return "East, we
'are anxious to know what has been doue."
