of the course, and the thousands of wood yards that are strewed all along the banks, where whole regiments of sharpshooters or light artillerists may be waiting to sink the vessel, or seize it as a prized if any be found bold enough to undertake, what will be the premium!. Cheapness of transportation is another element of commerce. How can it exist where transportation is to be made in iron clads, and at a premium of 100 per cent it will be better to submit to the skinning process of the New England cormorants, and transport by rail to Boston. But suppose all the danger past, and the born-flour, bacon, and tobacco, safely landed on the levee at New Orleans. Who is to buy? It is a part of the subjugation scheme to rip up the goose that lays the golden eggs — to cut down the tree that supplies the precious fruit — to liberate the negroes that make the cotton and sugar — to ruin the planter that purchases the produce. Who, then, is to buy it, or what is to become of it, unless i<
Port Hudson (Louisiana, United States) (search for this): article 2
n skillful marksmen, possessing cannon and small arms in abundance, and determined that the ing shall not be done such is precisely the condition and feeling of the country from Cairo to the Belize. The people are brave and enterprising; they possess arms and ammunition in abundance; they hate the Yankees as the Devil is supposed the hate holy water, and they are determined not to allow the river to be navigated by their trading boats. What good, then, will the capture of Vicksburg and Port Hudson, and of every other strong place on the Mississippi, do the Yankees? They are fighting they say, for the free navigation of the Mississippi. Does this advance the cause for which they are fighting? Are they any nearer their object now then they were when they first drew the sword? Do they mean to carry on trade in iron clad ships of war? Are there to be no more flat boats, no more high pressure steamboats, no more rafts, no more of any of the cheap and time honored vehicles in which

The navigation of the Mississippi In the year 1863, Richard Lander, the celebrated African traveller, who had three years before solved the mystery of ages by successfully exploring the course of the Niger, and ing triumphantly into the Atlantic by one of the months, undertook a commercial voyage to the river, under the auspices of a Liverpool firm. Anticipating hostility from some of the savage tribes that inhabit the banks of that river, he had provided himself with an iron steamboat, and in this he prosecuted the enterprise. He soon found his anticipations of savage hostility realized. The driven attacked his boat from the shore with bows and arrows and such old condemned tower muskets as they had been able to collect in their with the English, killed a great part of his crow, wounded himself, and ly broke up the expedition. The moral of this tale is, that trade cannot be carried on upon a long narrow river, inhabited on both shores by a hostile population, even th
nsferred the sceptre of the commercial world once more to the hands of England Semmes and Malfit, almost alone, have been enabled to effect this wonderful change, merely by the fear they inspire. But what are Semmes and Malfit, with a couple of vessels navigating the wide Atlantic, to a population of several millions inhabiting both sides of a narrow river and always ready to pounce upon every freight boat as it passes along. What Yankee company will insure a cargo to run the gauntlet from Allen to New Orleans, through the dense forests that line some parts of the course, and the thousands of wood yards that are strewed all along the banks, where whole regiments of sharpshooters or light artillerists may be waiting to sink the vessel, or seize it as a prized if any be found bold enough to undertake, what will be the premium!.
