Thte Company ti ipielalty Intended to meet the demand which exltti in the Southern portion ot the United Statee for money on mortgage on land and product, but power will be taken to do butlnetr in any part cf North America. The Southern States may be said to open up a new field, aa the builneu of the Milling Mortgage CompanlM baa been largely confined io tlie Northern Statei, and only latterly bare a few ol tlieie Coiapanlu found tbe great advantage! afforded by the South, where they hare been remarkably luecetiful in the business undertaken. The gnat natural wealth, fertility of toil, and fine climate of these States had before the war secured for them the posl- Uoa ol tho wealthleat Statei in America, aod the wonderful redevelopment of their resources, and their rapid itrides In ludoitrial progress during the last ten yearn, am well known. In eight Sonthern and Statei the taxable value of property le estimated to have Increeied 10 per cent, la the lour yesis ending 1883. This ii probably without parallel in io large a region of country. In the eight Statei there were miles of rattiMdfa 3879, aad in 1883, and the value ot raw in these ii estimated to have increased per within the eamt period. The tncreua In population and wealth of tbeM States la expected to be very npld, and they hare undoubtedlya great fatnre before them. The binds of the South yield In cotton from to per annum, or, in the ume year (the growing season being alrooat a crop of oaU and a crop of which together are of equal value to the cotton crop, and realise renta of f 10m 93 to per acre pttr annum In inferior dis- tricts, aad from to In others. The cotton lands of the world are of a limited area, and the consumption cf eelton goods is annually increasing. It U well known how Important to agricultural success is an abundant supply ot cheap and skilled labour, aad tlie South ii the only portion of the United SUtci which enjoys this gfeat advantage. The biulnesi of the Company will be of the moit cautloni and character, and It Is Intended that loans itull, as a info, be repayable by annual Imgtalnenu coveting both principal and Interest. current rate ol inteiest paid on Mortgages on land In the Southern Statea Is from eight to ten per cent. thus leaving a Urge margin far proflt. It will be ft special feature of this Company to accumulate a Jargn Reiervo Fund an rapidly as possible.
