I ncre was a meeting yesterday evening at Odd Fel- lowa Hall for the pirpnaa of tavnsidering the propriety of connecting this city by railroad wilh Columbus, Miss. Mr. Nel son acted Aa President cf the '' meeting and Col. J, T. Tretevant as Secretary. The chairman stated the subject of the ' 1 .',1 " 1 ri.i: 10..1'- meetin aim iiiiroutu'tu v uiuiifi 0,1 sps, of Columbus. ' .' ' .. Col, Sykes said .that the .road was -of great imporlance to Memphis and the country through which it would pass. Tha eosttif the road would be about fire million dollars to biiild it to Columbus, Misa. . There-waa ne road terminating in Memphis that could compare with road frm Memphis to,.Aklona, thence to Solum, theni;e to Montgomery, thence Memphii was . the natural place to which all the trade of the country through which the j-ailroad he had just referred to should llow. From Columbus a lnrge portion of their trade went ."to Mobile, while it ought to oome to Memphis; and if the -road referred lorere- buih they would have direct connection, with this rtyjyapd Memphis. Would be'.thirty miles nearer Columbus than Mobile. At Oko- lona they would be within one hundred miies of Memphisj and yet at the pres ent lime 'all the trade' wont from that place to Mobile, and hence the necessity fur the road being built with as little delay' 'a's" possible. He, contended, that the country round Memphis, for a radius of 150 miles, was the finest in the world through which railroad eauld pasi" He enumerated the several counties through, which it was proposed to carry ie. road, and snid that for fertility they were not to be compared to any ,io the.Wrslero tquhfty, - He gave it as his opinion that the Pacific road, whatever : might, be its .starting -point, would have to come within the same parallel pf latitude as. Memphis; and the' toad proposed to Columbus was part of this great Pacific scheme. It was the moat direct route td the Atlantic, and went through a country that was first class.' When this railroad wna built, Memphis would get all the trade pf tlis magnificent country through which it was proposed to carry the road. And he felt certain the trade of tbe section referred to would increase to an extent that could not be determined ; in fact, it would im-" prove to a far greater' extent :thnv'er before. The negroes u$ pre sent get one third of all that is produced on the farms, or they are tfaid wages." They spent all this money, and it was constantly kept in circulation. ' Before the abolition of slavery a dif ferent system existed. - The planters, if they had" any snrplus money, thejf either bought negroes or land, and this kept them always is debt Tbey were bound to have more negroes to work their land, or more land on which to work their ne groes. Now it was entirely different; they could not Iny" any more negroes, and they did not want to buy any more land, for they had more than they could work already. Many pernons were of opiniaathat the country waa 'ruined be cause the negroes had been freed ; bnt he was not of that opinion." He might per sonally be ruined by the abolition of slavery, by losing all his -slaves, but this did not ruin the country. The negroes were Mill in the country, and he con tended that as the laborers still remained, the country could aot be free. Col. Sykes then went on to remark that the farmers and planters would be greatly benefitted along the line of the proposed railroad ; and he thought therefore, that they aught to give freat assistance daring the year. He approximated the amount of cotton that would be raised this year i the counties) through which the road woald pass. He thought -that at 1150, the value at least this year would be Sve million- of dollars, which in five yeara from the present would be thirty mil lions . He next estimated the cost of building' tbe road t $30,000 per mile, taking ia all $5,000,000 to complete the, road. ne thought the people would make so much money during the next five years that they wonld not know what to do with it, and therefore they would invest in the road he bad referred to. It' they did. not do so, they could give dona tions' lii land,' and on the strength of possessing that land the company Oould build the road. Peace and quietness had again returned, and he felt certain it would be followed by capital and com merce. Col. Sykes closed his address by remarking at some length upon the ad vantages that would accrue to Memphis by becoming a manufacturing city. Upon tbe conclusion of Col. SykeV remarks, Col. Trezevant arose and of fered the following resolutions, which were adopted unanimously : ' Itctuhed, As the sense of this meeting, that we have heard with great pleasure and instruction, the remarks of Colonel Sykes, of Columbus, Miss., touching a direct railroad communication between Memphis and Columbus; and we here pledge to him and the citizens of his town, and the country contiguous to it, thnt as Memphis has never yet failed to give all proper encouragement and aid to- any railroad reaching out into the country surrounding her, so she will not fail at the proper time to do her duty to this enterprise, t, V ; , ' ' 1 Resolved, That we earnestly urge upon the counties in. Mississippi interested, to hold railroad meetings, arouse public sentiment and enterprise, and thus place this project on, such a footing as will insure success. " Great reduction In dress goods,' at Martin Holland's, 313 Main street t ; Sh.k orekapikes at fifty cents at Elson Bros.' t, , An Old Cask. Mr. , Kannavan was before' Esquire Creighton yesterday for obstructing an alley by driving posts in the, ground, thus preventing vehicles from passing. It appears that Mr. Kan navan has a lease on some property on Oayoso street for twenty-one years; ad jacent to the property is an alley which Mr. K. regards as private property. Aetion has been taken against him sev eral times for obstructing this alley, but he has always defeated the prosecution. Mr. Summerville appeared on this occa sion to represent the city in the prosecu tion. Two able gentlemen appeared for the defendant. It was not shown that the alley was public, although used as auch. Tbe decision waa therefore, ren dered in favor of the defendant.
