Tub exertiom of thii paper to arouse special etfort to move thu enormous curn crop of 187. lo market by the cheapest possible thoroughfare tho .Mississippi and the Ocean is winning uttention and fa vorable comment everywhere. Our arti cles have come under thu notice of somo owners uf bulk grain propellers built to ply between Liverpool and Montreal via too si. ivtiwrence, and, as will be seen bya letter from Mr. lilifby, the New Orleans elevator man, printed elsewhere, Ibey have visited New Orleans to offer their steamers for the next six month! while the St. Lawrence Is froxen up to the St. Louis and Liverpool corn trade. But, naturally enough, they want a guarantee that they can have cargoes, and will agree to transport 3,000,000 bush els of corn from Now Orleans to Livei pool at lid to 13d per bunbel. Suppose we put it ft 1'J pence per bushul. That is 21 cents coin pr bushel, or $1,440,000 in gold lo bo oarni'il by these steamers in rix months, Tbat there will bo a fresh im pulse givon to the grain trade via the great water routo this approaching winter there en n ho no question, and from thenceforth for all time the superior economy uf the route will insure its steady growth in im portance. We ml vise all our business men to read Mr. liigby's letter, lt contains mailer they will be glad to know, Mis souri Democrat.
