Is it not a fact that Columbus derives her
support nmrc from the trade she receives
from Pickens, Fayette and from the "small
planters of Noxubee and Lowndes and tho;
counties adjoining on the Vv'cst, than from
the many wealthy planters who surround her?
Being the shipping port of millions of dol
lars worth of produce is little advantage to a
town unless the avails of it, or a portiou at
,.:it, ntv scattered among Us citizens. Now,
it seems dear to me, that Columbus will lose,
hy the construction of this railroad very lit
tle of the profitable trade she now receives.
She would rather largely increase it by the
strong i ndue omenta which such a railroad
.'.jan.'eti"n would enable her to offer. As
suming that the profits of her business, are
mostly derived in the manner 1 have suppos
ed, ia there anything in the completion of the
railroad, to change this current of trade?
V ill the. small planter have any more real
facilities for trade with Mobile than he ha3
now? And if he has would it be to his in
terest to go there? Will not the daily de
mands f his household be the same as now?
Will he have any greater probable ability to
buy at wholesale, his necessaries for thcycar
than he now has? And is it not preposter
ous to suppose that ho would send from week
to week or from month to month to Mobile,
buy at retail there, and pay freight and
charges, which are always proportionably
much greater on small packages than on large?
lUut there will be a town built up at the rail
road depot, where all our trade west will be
stopped." If Columbus were a small J5 roads
town without capital or influence, I admit
there would be a strong probability cf a rival
at the depot, but there is too much capital in
vested here, there arc too many interests clus
tering about the place, it is too well built,
and has and will have too great facilities for
trade, to admit such a supposition for a mo
ment. There would be warehouses there,
of course, and perhaps a grocery or two, but,
if Columbus connect with the road, there
could be little growth beyond this. Cotton
would not of course be hauled across the rail
road to town, it would be left at the depot;
but tho owner, if it be a small crop, would
come on himself to Columbus and purchase
his goods, and sell his cotton by sample, or
the cotton buyers could have an agent at the
depot to receive and report upon it, or, if
you connect by rail or plaukroad it would be
very easy to go thither and inspect for your
selves. With the facilities this road would
give him, the. merchant of Columbus, from
the comparative cheapness of rent, clerk hire,
&C , &c, could afford to sell goods consider
ably cheaper than they could be retailed at
Mobile, thus making it the direct interest of
cvt ry .small buyer within reach to trade here.
On the other hand, he could pay so near the
Mobile market price for cotton, that it would
be far hotter fror the maker of five, ten, twen
ty, or even fifty bales to sell here, than to

it will hold good in the South, where towns
are mnch farther septate, and where there
are comparatively feWof note or large popu
lation in a- wide stretei. of country. So far
as my observation has extended, I can assert
with confidence that Instead of destroying
interior towns in the outh, railroads have
built them up. Look at Georgia. A few
years ago the surveys for the State road were
made through a wild jid very thinly settled
country. Now tha rjilroad passes through
the most prosperous and populous region of
the State. Thriving villages are springing
up every where along the line, and towns
which at its .commencement had scarcely a
name, arc now rapidly attaining wealth and
importance. There arc Rome and Dalton
and Marietta. The latter in 1844 had scarce
ly 300 inhabitants, now it has three thous

"local habitation or a name," now .boasts o

that town which expects to get along and re
tain its prosperity and increase its growth in
this go-ahead age without them, will very
certainly find to its cost, that its enemy has

Of all places, Columbus has the least to
fear, and I had almost said has the most to
hope, from the construction of this road. It
is the largest town on the road from the Gulf
hither, adistanceof about two hundred miles,
and whatever may be the fate of the small
towns above and below on the road, the citi
zens of Columbus, if they connect them
selves with it, need have no fears of seeing
their town swallowed up by any rival exist
ent or to come. It will rather bring the dawn
of a new and brighter era in their prosperity
than any they have experienced in the past
or hope for in the future.

The most beautiful specimen of artistic
proficiency we have ever seen, was shown us
the other day in a full set of artificial teeth
wrought into perfect mould by the wonder
ful ingenuity and skill of Dr. S. A. Salton
stall, Surgeon Dentist of this place. This is
only one of a number of specimens which we
have seen, all bearing the impress of native
genius combined with practised skill, the
success of which in all the operations of dent
istry have not only rendered Saltonstall dis
tinguished in his profession, but have also
been followed by a harvest of patronage, in
cluding orders from some of the principal
cities of the South-west.

Dr. Chamlerlain was ,about 53. years of

which hurried him ' to the other world, by

the fatal blow, to have been under the mad
