SUndino; lbis-vening upon the hunk of
the river at Alston, we were most forcibly
impressed with the sentiment, which we
write down as a caption to thin article,

whilst th heavy lailen trains, with hissing
enxines, were bearing rich freights to am

and boxes of produce and merchandise,
covered the sand strewn shore, and, the
trihuies ol river and road here presented
ajbriible illustration ot the eitent of t
products and wants of those who dwell
in the interior of the State. Never again
can we return to the old system of wagon
transportation; for Railroads have be.
come fixed amongst the necessaries of life
and fixed, too, by a&teuu; rpjujuf
than that asunlly accorded to mere con
vettienee. When profit attaches to any
mode ol transportation, all who can avail
themselves of that mode will Mick toil.
The common roads are no worse now
than when the entire middle and back
country wagoned their produce to market;
the river in Mill open from Alston to Co
lumbia ; yet thousands ol planters have
waited lu transport their cotton bales on
the Railroad . and the-river boats dis
charge and transfer their cargoes as soon
as they strike it. These facts prove the
value of Railroads tothe producers of our
staple crops and we have no need to go
farther than the past year's experience,
lo show the truth, of our assertion; but
when we add the public convenience af
forded to travel the rapid transportation
of the mails, and the other benefits arising
to a community from a perfect system of
accommodations of this sort, the (act is
