Tennessee and Alabama Railroad.—Company incorporated in 1832. Capital, $3,000,000, to be divided into shares of $100 each. It is known that a population of at least 200,000 already inhabit the counties bordering on the Upper Tennessee and its tributaries, and that they have no market, or outlet for their products, but the long, expensive, and almost impracticable route to New Orleans. The country embraces about 40 counties, in Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia; and it is not inferior in fertility to other portions of the States to which it belongs. The Hiwassee is a considerable stream, rising in the mountains of Georgia, and, running a north-westerly course, discharges itself into the Tennessee above the Suck.
