sippi Railroad, thereby forming a direct line to Savannah, on the Mississippi river. It passes through a section of country which, for fertility and agricultural productions, cannot be surpassed in the West.

FOX RIVER VALLEY RAILROAD.

This Company was chartered in 1853, with the right to construct a railroad from the south line of the State of Wisconsin to Milwaukee, a distance of 43 miles. The entire route has been surveyed, and about one-third of it completed. Its location is very favorable, passing through one of the richest and most densely populated portions of Wisconsin, besides forming several important connections with other railroads.

THE RACINE AND MISSISSIPPI RAILROAD.

This road runs from the city of Racine to Savanna, on the Mississippi river, a distance of 136 miles. Having an eastern terminus at Racine, and a belt of rich and wellsettled country, eighteen miles wide, the whole length of the road, wholly dependent upon it for the transportation of its produce to a good market; it commands every advantage upon which the success of such projects usually depend.

MILWAUKEE AND SUPERIOR RAILROAD.

This enterprise is in the hands of a Company organized under a charter obtained in March last. The route of the proposed road, under its charter, extends from Milwaukee, by way of the lake shore towns, to Green Bay, and thence to the City of Superior, at the head of Lake Superiorcovering a distance of about four hundred miles. It is the extension northward of the line of lake shore roads, now

completed from Buffalo to Milwaukee. The Company is entitled to receive one hundred thousand dollars of the bonds of that city, besides numerous private subscriptions, &c., in various counties along their route. It is their intention to complete the road to Sheboygan in 1858. Between Milwaukee and Green Bay it can have no rival road within forty miles; and, were its operations confined only to the local business, it could not fail to be a profitable investment. But it reaches further; intersects the Chicago, St. Paul, and Fond du Lac Road, leading to the mining districts of Ontonagon and Marquette, and traverses the richest mineral region in Northern Wisconsin, to the great city of Lake Superior.
