A railway, therefore, for, the transporfatien »f the articles above mentioned, to the Susque- hannah, is preferable to a canah which M l be closed a t tile very time it is rnost needed for toe pnrpnBPs of transportation. Tlie rmlway should also answer all the purposes o f a canal (and would even be. superiour to it) during toe summer season, for toe traaspottatioa of merchandise to the south, and of sooh articles Uf produce as may be destined,' from tbe y^icy.of thre Susquebannab to the New- York market by way of the Erie Canal. Nor is he day far distant, when coal, from the beds et Towanda, and even the Lackawaxen,.would he an .extensive article o f transportation.
