(Column 1)Summary: The editors herald the development of the manufacturing and mining industries in Virginia. These advances will aid Virginia's return "to the former prosperity of the 'Old Dominion.'"
Full Text of Article:[No Title]
At no time perhaps has the subject of mining engaged the attention of Virginians so extensively as at present. Daily important and valuable additions are made to the great mineral wealth Virginia is know to possess. These discoveries are inducing a disposition to engage in a new species of manufacture in the Old Dominion. We herald this as a good omen. The success of any kind of manufacturing establishment induces greater energy in that line and tends to stimulate other branches. We have noticed with pleasure that our Capital City is turning her attention to a greater degree than heretofore to manufacturing. Richmond, with her vast water power, her attention turned to manufacture, and with her facility to receive the raw material, will take no second rate position among manufacturing cities. This will but increase her importance as a commercial city. Her advantages in this line are no mean order and manufactures will serve to stimulate her commercial interests. To see Richmond turning her attention particularly to manufacturing is a pleasing sight to Virginians. To this means alone, in her changes circumstances, have we looked ultimately to see her take that proud and prominent position among the cities of this country to which her location and natural advantages justly entitle her.
Not only is manufactures destined to benefit Richmond, but it is to the proper reduction of the raw material, in which Virginia abounds, into marketable commodities, that we will have to look for restoration of the former prosperity of the "Old Dominion." Every facility in this line will ultimately be taken advantage of. Manufacturing establishments, adapted to the wants, or super-induced by the facility of receiving and cheapness of the raw material, will spring up in every community. They will furnish labor with constant work, produce with a ready market at home, merchandise with prompt and cash customers and indeed give a heretofore, unfelt impetus to every branch of business. What we all have to do is to foster those which have been erected in our communities by our patronage, and stimulate the building up of other branches of manufacture by the success of those already in operation. If we all but add out mite in this line, every city and town will rise in importance, and Virginia be prosperous beyond any realization of the past or the most sanguine anticipation of the future.
