M rOlarke state. with great frank ness that he had been fatmiiar- with the advantages of this connection for two or three years, and that' his recent inspection confirmed. -the opinion that, the road bed, already constructed, had been carefully pre pared, especially with a view to.lda clng it above the highest water ever known in the country, and that it penetrated a more fertile area than any railroad, without exception, in Louisiana. A completion of the Vicksburg and Shreveport road. running as it did through a less fertile area, would not make it a dangerous competitor. The country traversed is susceptible of producing a variety of products, including wheat, corn, cotton, sugar and tobacco, and is timbered with many valuable woods, such as hard pine, white oak, post oak, hickory, and some poplar. Concerning the disposition of cap. italists to complete a road which affords cultivators of the soil a speed ily accessible market, Mr. Clarke has repeatedly spoken to influential gentlemen upon this subject. There is no question whatever that capital will always seek investment where the security is certain, and where the enterprise will command a large profit. Capitalists who do. business elpewhere dem mnd a largir return for their investment th in' residents. The improvement of property in New Orleans, the increase in its volume of trade and its columerral progro,s: sre of nointerest whatever to them,, unless they can profit by it. When this matter i, broached to Northern capitalists, they at once and very naturally, suggest: "it this be of so immense advantage to New Orleans, why do not New Or leans people take hold of it? It their trade is to be increased and their property improved, why do they manifest no desire to secure what, to a business man, would scorn an absolute necessity ?" To this pertinent query, M. Clarke made the stereotyped reply, to be heard upon the streets every day, and will be rciterated for the next twew ty years: "New Orleans merchants and business men have no money." To this the response was made, that they had ,i, hey enough last year to invest 1 ,1000,000 in U. 8. four per cent bo . They had mo uey enough to s up their places of business, and end four months of every summer a a Northern wa terlng place. They can do business sls months in the year and r."nin idle the remainder. Our experience tecohes us that six months labor for either muscle or capit.il, is not enough to pay a year's interest, and we do not propose to risk our cap. Ital upon any such terms. A merchant of any prominence at the North manages, six or eight weeks every year, to secure a vaca I won, but his business, which has been thoroughly systematized goes on uninterruptedly during hi ,ab sehe. He can't afford to do other else, sad capital knows this as well as it knows anythlOg. We don't Inead Bouthren money "for any en Strprise we decide to undertake in Sthe Bouth, but we do need some as Seranoe that the enterprise will b. oevre the earnest and vigorous co ioperation of the ahmmailtty to be I beafeted. In helping thenmselves they help us. It is the marpth& would double his crop of cotton, and make twice the money he did 'last in this, who would double our Did he own a small interest in the road and receive a share of the prof Its, it would be pretty sure to be prof Itable. If the New Orleans people would subscribe any speo0lle amount to the road to insure their I activity in the matter twelve months Sin the year, and the developient'of I new Industries that will emplop I them twelve months in the ,year * the road will be built. The bulk of the cotton and grain Sprotoed to-day in northern Texas sad msthern Arkansas takes a trip' I ol 1l anecessary miles to reaqh.L I market. Most of it goes to8 Lools. Marshball, Texas, is 400 Ine I nearer NewOrleans and tide WIter thant, Louels. The grain, whtehlhs Sla the shape of flour, goes abroa4 S Itom that city, is crrrled there from the grain producoing eentres, and Stakes trip of 1200) miles down thei f river to reach the point of shlipment. r when It might just as easmly ,be a poud in New Orleans mills. The bulk of the grain produesddn i northern Texas could just aseasily Sresahob New Orleans by a 400 mii. a nearer way, and be converted inbte Sflour and go abroad to a market, as t not, provided there was a dposition ,m aesfet on the part of the eommu I. alty to do it. -ri; I As it is, New Orleans is the only, Is important seaport in the ,Uattl 81 States that does not connetbr a t. syet of ~ailroade with any wealth It producing section. In 1859, site did Sthe bulkof the business of 'rexas d when that State had 4oo,000 lnbabl* Uate. *e Now, with a population of 1,800o,00 S consuters, she scarcely furnishes u y supplies. Wholesale stocks, A owog to the lack of customers, hAve, It beenso wofully reduced that even old customers, have been bylaqg. although, almost toa man, they hadt rather trade in New Orleans than san city in America. If they only wait long enough Northern capital will build a road ., from Shreveport to Alexandria, sean scoop up all the cotton which grows. upon both banks of lRed river be. tween those two p!aces. Mr. Clarke aecerritl on this trlp ' m that the cotton In these ne.ghb~-r * hoods is now being h~auled from nine ty tsooe hundred m1e1 tr Lhlrev,. port anid sent by r:. i t, St. L .u41.
