SOUTH GEORGIA A FLORIDA
BY THE EDITOB.
As bills have lately passed the Leg
isiature of authorizing the
Counties of Thomas and Mitchell, and
the City Council of Thomaitville, to
issue bonds approximating to the sum
of'®4oo,Qoo for the purpose of taking
stock in the above railroad, it may be
well, in additioo to what we have al
ready written on the subject, tq fur
nish our with more solid and
nscessary information in relation to
the practicability of the enterprise.
8t uie difference of opinion exists as to
the best location for the roatT, between
Thomasville and Albany, but all are
agreed that the construction of the
road is a necessity which connor longer
be overlooked. ‘1 wo routes have been
surveyed -one on h direct line between
Thomasvilie and Albany, and the oth
er from a point on file line of the At
lantic & Gulf Hoad, 8| miles west of
Thomasville direct to Albany. The
loiter route, it is said, presents the
irreatest advantages, because it Is the
shortest route t the junction, and be
cause the Atlantic & Gulf Road may
be used in crossing the Oehloekonee
river. This survey was made by the
Atlantic & Gull Railroad Company,
in 1865, with a view to the construc
tion of a tributary to hat great enter
prise, and the maps gnd profil s are
to he found in Presid. ut Screven’s
office, at Savau-iah.
We have represented this survey as
possessing advantages over any other
route, but it is a question for serious
consideration among the peoj. le of
Thom tßville, whose interests the char
ter was meant in part to subserve,
whether it wbuld not be better to give
up the claims of this route for the
mo e important advantage of making
Thomasville, beyond peradventure,
p rmanently the terminus of the road,
! or iu the event of a final connection
with Florida, to occupy a position ex
actly at the cross roads. Our people
express a wiljingriess to labor to over
come any disadvantage of a direct line
from Thomasville to Albany, rather
than submit to a junction 8$ miles
West of the town, which may, n the
future prove detrimental to their in
te r ests, by divgiting travel and trade,
and thus re-train, rather than increase
their commercial thrift. The small
difference in cost against a direct line
between Thomasville and Albany,
dwindles int<- insignificance when we
consider that this road is, in a great
measure, to control the destiny of our
now flourishing town, and that the
completion of the same would ioimc< |
dlately treble the value of all our pro
perty, and bring a dense population to
cut down our forests, cultivate our
lands, and build, up our towns and vil
Rut the chief object of this article
is, to call the attention of cur .caders
at home and capitalists abroad, to the
astori'shingly small amount of capita /
required to construct this railroad In
catrying out this object we could not
do he ter than to place before them, a
portion of a'etter addressed by M-.
J. A. Maxwell, k’ own in this coinuiu
nity as an accomplished gen tl man
and experienced Engineer, to a well
known member of the pity Council
of Thomasville Mr Maxwell was re
quested by the gentleman alluded to,
to examine the surveys of the South
Georgia & Florida Railroad, and give
his opi -ion for the benefit of the Coun
i cil. He will pardon us lor our treat
i ment ol his pointed and well written
letter, btt we coubi use it effectually
in no other way. After i careful ex
amination of the maps, he writes as
“ If you heve paid much attention
to the relative and absolute costs of .
Railroad construction, you will be sur- j
frised at the extraordinary estimates
which are made of the costs of pon
necrinsr Thomasville and Albany The
first estimates are by Mr Worcester,
in February of 1865, and are p obubly
intended on a gold basis. The second
are by mvself, and based on the pre
sent currency, pres-nt prices of labor,
1 materials and tools.

These result* are certainly ejrtraor
(finnrj/j for the estimates include ev
ery item necessary to prepare the road
to receive the iron and ties, and while
Mr. Woroestei's estimae shows that
the road may be constricted for the
| astonishingly small sum of
per mile, the estimate revised by tny
I self, to sait the f regent markets, shows
a eogt of only $4,‘800 00 per mile.
Now, as small as this is, you will see
at once how much more it may I e re
duced bv a certainlocation of the road.
If your road crosses Flint river, one or
more miles South of Albany, it will
be absolutely necessary to construct
your railroad bridge before completing
the connection; but if you reject the
line proposed to cross the rive*- South
of Albany, and build direct , you need
not, while your mad is in its infancy,
cross the river with vour cars I can
not conceive of any reason why you
should not connect with the South-
Western Railroad by Omnibuses cross
ing Tift’s Bridge For observe, that
this immediately reduces the first cost
of your Railroad by three large items,
viz : 4th, sth and 6th, in the above
e-tirnate being a diminution of £79 -
610 00. and thereby reducing the first
cost of your road bed to £159,772 00,
or the amazingly small sum of £2,800
00 per mile. \\ hen I consider the
abo-’e remarkable result, it becomes a
matter of much surprise with me that
this road has not been constructed
sooner, and I can account for it only
by supposing that few persons have
been aware of the very small cost of
constructing so important a work.
It m >y be presumptuous on my part,
to express any opinion on Mr. Wor
cester’s survey, but I venture to state
that, his maps and profiles prove him
to have been a competent man, and
give me the fullest confidence in his
So much for the cost of construction
on a direct line to Albany, from a
point 8| miles West of Thomasville.
In reference to other lines proposed
Mr Maxwell continues by stating, that
the plan for crossing Flint river far
South of Albany, can offer but one
advantage, tho’ others are ccntended
for. It might secur to the Company
some subscriptions of stock, but even
regarding it as a mere question of cost,
who supposes that the few thousands
offered there, ought to divert the road
from its direet course, beside tender,
ing nec’ ssary £79,610 00 of additional
Bridge construction The advocates
of this divergence contend for another
advantage, which is only imaginar.
They argue, that by crossing Flint
river farther to the South of Albany,
the road would point in the direction
of Cuthbert, and thus invite a connec
tion with that point, and giving the
South Georgia & Florida Railroad
thereby, nearly a strait line to Mont,
gomery. Ala. They are aware that
the Railroad from the latter point to
Eufaula is nearly complete, but they
are not aware, perhaps, that a connec
tion will soon be made between Albany
and Dawson. This overthrows their
argument and shows, that a direct con
nection with A bany will at once sc*
cure that very connection with Mont
gomery which the adoption of their
plat: would only contemplate in the
Jn conclurion Mr. Maxwell adds:
11 Mr. Worce ter’s estimate of the
cost of superstructure, which includes
every thing to be placed on the
bed is $410,190 00, while my < wn is .
$440,000 00 for superstructure, to
which add £159,772 00 for construc
tion, and we have £599,772 00 as the
total cost of the road on the direct
line, and provided the Railroad Hr dge
over the Flint is not built as a part of
the first cost. Divide this sum by
55J miles, and the cost is shown to be
less than SII,OOO per mile. The es
timates for superstructure include cress
ties, stringers, iron spikes, chairs, side
tracks, labor on boxing same, and for
placing the road in proper condition
to receive the cars.’
It will be seen that the above est'*
mates are made upon the line ha’ ing
its junction with the Atlantic & Gulf
road 8f miles West of Thomasville,
direct to Albany, without any refer
ence to the favorite plan of the citi
zens here of forming said juncti.m at
Thomasville, leaving the latter an open
question for future adjustment. It
must not be forgotten that, as indica.

THE LATE .IITOCSK LOVE, OP *
The announcement of the death of
this worthy and distinguished gentle
man, came to us suddenly and unex
pectedly, and while it is not our object
to pronounce a eulogy, for which oth.
ers who knew him longer aud more
intimately are better qualified, still we
feel that it is alike the privilege of
friendship and gratitude to bear some
feeble tes itnony to the worth and amia
ble qualities of one, who was both the
friend and p r eceptor, while we were
trying years ago to master tho subtle
ties of the law, and if we have not profi-*
ted by the kindly assistance and advice
received so freely from himself and his
associate at that time, the Hon. J. L.

less rugged, though at the same time
less profitable, yet the fecol'ection of

equally at home, and equally able to
contribute to the enjoyment .of others.
•Although brimful of fun, yet his com
plete self-contrjl and a certain gravity
of countenance approaching severity
which he could at any time assume,
enabled him with impunity to play
many a prank upon his brethren of the

especially while traveling on circuit,
and. even the sacredness of the “ermina
which he himself afterwards so long
and worthily wore, was nut always a
prorection against hrs practical joke*
