Long before the movement from tho
N<>rtboru ami Middle States sot in, tho
?Sun repeatedly called attention to tin
now field thut since the war was opened
nt tito South for industrial emigration
from tho Statis \ind from abroad. lt
pointed OUt ita vast underlying wealth
of eoal and iron oro, of limestone and
mnngnnoso, its greet deposits of kaolin
mid of copper and gold, to its variety of
woods for tho constructive and decora
tive jun poses, and its thousands of acres
of fertile soil. At thal time only a few
cotton factories \v< re in operation, some
kaolin deposits worked, and hore und
there SOUth ol' Virginia, whore coal
nuning had long bo i going on, some
feeble attempts mud at mining-princi
pally in Tennessee and Alabama-- where
ti tow furnaces had been built for tho
smelting of iron ore.
lt hud bet o demonstrated ovon Iben
that cottou fabrics of tho plainer kind
could be produced ut considerably less
cost than at tho North, and pig iron laid
on the bank ready for delivery at $11
per ton. Tho great drawback was the
want of ndetpjuto facilities for transpor
tation to a market, but not long after
wards some enterprising and clear-sight
ed mon, looking forward to the future
development ol this mineral wealth, took
up considerable bodies of land rich in
coal and iron ere, and waited until the
time should come to utilizo them. The
rapid extension of railroads throughout
the ?South supplied tho opportunity, and
while tho Southern people of tho cotton
belt were increasing tho Hin?ber of their
faetones in the vicinity of tho plantations
that produced tho raw material, Northern
and English capitalists were descending
upon West \ irginia, Tennessee mid
Alabama, and ?'Utting up furnaces, to bo
followed by rolling mills, in tho midst
of tho iron And coal deposits. Slow us
the movement was nt lirst, it has in
creased with blich rapidity that great
coke and iron furnaces now lino the
Chesapeake and ohio Railroad. Chatta
nooga and Knoxville have now bi come
hives of busy industry, and new towns,
destined to rival oitlCS like Pittsburg,
liave been founded in Alabama, which
have been christened Birmingham and
?Siieiliold- names lamons in langland for
the excellence of their manufactures of
iron ami steel. Birmingham is now the
sent of an active iron industry, lt hus
already a number of largo furnaces, and
mills for rolling iron and stool aro about
to bo erected. Lt contains at this time
some 8,000 inhabitants. At Shollield,
also, furnaces have boon built, streets
laid ont, houses erected, stores opened,
and population is hooking in. What is
moro important still, chea]) iron is at
tracting other industries. One ol' tho
great stove works at Troy, doing the
largest business of its kind ill the United
States, is to bo n moved, or may already
have been removed, either to Alabama
or Tennessee, other trades and manu
factures oro following, notably Clark's
works, which supplies a largo par! of the
United States with cotton thread. Tho
marbles ol Tanm s oo, for w hich Knox
ville is tho principal market, aro getting
to bo in request, and so many manufac
turing enterprises have, been established
there that the population has increased
from If.,ooo in 1882 to over ?10,000.
Chattanooga show.- a similar increase
and with it bas como a speculation in
building logs on whicli large profits have
been rapidly modo, bul which may bc
carried too far unless kopi within healthy
limits. Other Southern cities oro feeling
tho impulse, though in a lesser degree.
Lands are bringing better prices. Tho
hardwood forests of Tennessee and
North Carolina, which Jess than two
years ugo could have boon bought at
from sixty emits to a dollar and a quar
ter, an acre have been purchased by capi
talists, who aro gobing ready tosend the
limber to the Eastern markets. Great
Btrotchcs of pine land farther south,
within easy distance O? rail or water car
riage, have also bein brought up. All
. these facts go to show' that thc South
has entered upon a now ora of indu- trial
activity never know n bet?re, and that in
tho course pf a few years, she is destined
tb become one of the most prosperous
Sections of the Union.
