ATLANTA AND RICHMOND AIR LINE RR. (in Progress).

Line of Road.-- Atlanta, Ga., to Charlotte, N. C......

.250 miles. The railroad, as projected, will lie within the States of Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. There are necessarily three charters: one from the State of Georgia, covering the line from Atlanta to the Savannah River, near Anderson, S. C.; another from the State of South Carolina, covering the line from the Savannah River to the State line of North Carolina, in the direction of Charlotte, N. C.; and a third from the State of North Carolina, covering the short link in that State. The Georgia charter entitles the road within that State the “Georgia Air-Line Railroad," and the Carolina charters the “ Air-Line Railroad in South Carolina" and the “ Air

“ Line Railroad in North Carolina,” respectively. These charters provide for the consolidation of the entire line under one organization and name.

Preliminary steps to this consolidation, under the name of “The Atlanta and Richmond Air-Line Railroad Company,” have been taken, and it is expected to be effected without delay. Georgia gives her bonds in aid of the work at the rate of $12,000 per mile on the line within the limits of that State. Stock to the amount of over $500,005 has been taken, and twenty miles of road next Atlanta are under contract and the work is in progress. The road is designed to pass from Atlanta, nea Anderson, Greenville and Spartanburg, S. C., to Charlotte, N. C., and when completed, will open a link in the Piedmont line between New Orleans, Mobile and Montgomery, to Richmond, Washington and the Northern cities.
