the key to the city of Richmond. One thing remains to be done, in order to place beyond all question the impregnability of Richmond in this its only vulnerable quarter. It is to fill the river with one continuous line of obstructions from Rocketts to Drury's Bluff, making Richmond, at least during the continuance of the war, an inland city. The enormous preparations of the enemy for assault by the river must be met by corresponding preparations for resistance. It is well known that that batteries, however formidable, are not to be relied on against a combined attack of land and naval forces. Our certain reliance, in connection with the batteries, is to seal the James river up from Rocketts to Drury's Bluff, constructing a double track railroad between the two points to supply the place of the river in transportation. This is not our own suggestion, but that of eminent naval authority, and we call to it the immediate attention of the Government and city authorities.
