ISSUE OF £4,000,000.





Secured by a First Mortgage upon all the property of the Corporation, including the Road, Rolling Stock Equipments, Telegraph Line, &c., and an average of about 23,000 Acres

of Land for every Mile of Road.

IN BONDS ΤΟ BEARER OF £200, £100, & £20. Principal payable 1st July 1900, and Interest at Seven and three-tenths per cent. per annum payable Half-yearly on 1st July and 1st January in London.

Messrs. JAY COOKE, McCULLOCH, and CO. are authorised to receive Subscriptions for the above Bonds.

857. per cent., thus yielding to subscribers upwards of 83 per cent. per annum, upon the investment, with the further addition of 15 per cent. on repayment of principal.

Scrip certificates will be issued after allotment, bearing coupon due July 1, 1872, for 27. 108. per 20. bond, 17. 58. per 1007. bond, and 58. per 201. bond; being interest on instalments at the rate of the bond.

Discount at the rate of 5 per cent. per annum will be allowed on payments in full in anticipation of the instalments.

In default of payment of any instalment at its due date, the allotment will be liable to cancellation, and all previous payments to forfeiture.

In cases where no allotment is made, the deposit will be returned; and when an allotment is made of a smaller amount than that applied for, the surplus deposit will be applied towards the amount payable on allotment.

The scrip certificates will be exchanged for bonds as early as practicable after full payment of instalments.

This loan is part of an authorised issue of ten millions sterling, which, together with the dollar bonds now being sold in America, is covered by the first mortgage, under which the total creation of bonds is limited to fifty thousand dollars per mile of road. No further issue will be made in Europe for certainly one year, and probably for a longer period.

In addition to the usual security of a mortgage upon the railroad and its equipment, the further security of 500 acres of land is reserved by the terms of the Trust Deed against each 2007. (or 10 0 dols.) bond, and the application of the proceeds of these lands (which cannot be otherwise appropriated) is, practically, a sinking fund, which is expected to retire the bonds before maturity.

The management of the road, as will be seen by the List of Directors, is in the hands of men of the highest standing and the largest experience in leading American railroads. The sales of the bonds made by Messrs. JAY COOKE and Co., in the United States, already exceed ten millions of dollars.

Under special Act of Congress the mortgage has been duly executed and recorded, and deposited with the Secretary of the Department of the Interior at Washington.

Copies of the Acts of Congress of the United States authorising the organisation of the Company, confirming its Land-Grant and the issue of its mortgage, duly authenticated by the Secretary of State under his official seal, and other documents, may be examined at the offices of Messrs. W. and H. P. SHARPE, No. 92, Gresham-house, Old Broad-street, London, E.C.

Forms of application may be obtained from Messrs. JAY COOKE, MCCULLOCH and Co. 41, LOMBARD-STREET, 9th Jan. 1872.

The Northern Pacific Railroad will extend from Duluth, on Lake Superior, the western head of navigation on the American lakes, to Puget Sound, on the Pacific Ocean, a distance of 200 miles, the cost of 400 miles of which has already been provided in the United States.

The route is singularly free from engineering difficulties, and has great advantages from its low grades and comparative exemption from snow, the highest summit crossed being 380 ft. lower tin the highest levels on the Union and Central Pacific route.



The road is completed across the State of Minnesota to the Red River of the North, a distance of 255 miles. Contracts have been let for the construction of the Dakota division, extending from the Red River to the Missouri (200 miles), to be finished by the 1st of July next. A section of 65 miles is being built at the western end, between the Columbia River and Puget Sound. From the Duluth terminus there is already direct communication by rail with St. Paul and Chicago. These connections will be multiplied by branch roads now under construction, and an extension of one of these, in a north-westerly direction, will reach the frontier of the British province Manitoba.

The Norshera Pacific Railroad has been endowed by the Government of the United States with a grant of lands estimated at about sixty million acres.

The bonds of the Company are secured by a first and only mortgage on the road, its equipment and earnings, and by a Land-Grant which, on the completion of the road, will average about 25,000 acres to each mile of track.

The proceeds of the lands, it is estimated, will far exceed the cost of the road and its equipment. The school lands of Minnesota are sold at an average of 630 dola, per acre. The lands of the Union Pacific Railroad, so far as sold, have averaged 4:46 dols. per acre; lands of Iowa railroads vary from 7 dols. to 11 dols. per acre; those of the Illinois Centrai Railroad have averaged 11:00 dols,

The bonds of the Northern Pacific Railroad are issued on a basis of 2dols. per acre. For every thousand dollar bond there will always be reserved 500 acres of land, the value of which will increase as settlement and sales proceed. The bonds, therefore, are a safe Real Estate Mortgage, as well as a first lien on a completed railroad and its traffic.

The bonds are exempt from United States taxation. They are at all times receivable at 110 U S. currency in payment for the Company's lands at their casu price. The trustees are required to apply the proceeds of all sales of lands to the purchase and cancellation of the bonds, and to the payment of interest thereon. The land-grant of the road, therefore, is practically a sinking fund, the operation of which may be expected to cancel and retire tho bonded debt before it reaches maturity.

The influx of population on the line of the road mo:e than keeps pace with the work of construction. Large quantities of the Company's lands in Minnesota have been sold to actual settlers. The excellence of the lands, the salubrity of the climate, and the diversity of natural resources within the territory covered by the grant, are reasons for expecting an exceedingly rapid growth of population and traffic. The freight charges paid by the mining population of Montana, with the present very limited facilities of transpor tation, even now amount to several million dollars yearly; and the expenditures of the United States Government,: for the transportation of supplies, have in twelve months exceeded FIVE MILLION DOLLARS;-the bulk of which business will revert naturally to the Northern Pacific.

Present indications are that the road will from the outset enjoy a large local traffic. It passes through the best wheat-growing region in the world. It already crosses the Missis sippi and the Red River, and the proposed route crosses at intervals the Missouri, the Yellowstone, the Clark, the Snake, the Columbia, the Cowlitz-all navigable streams, which will cheapen the cost of construction and serve as feeders, bringing to the road the traffic of a vast country, pre-eminently rich in natural resources.

The Asiatic trade is expected to yield large traffic. By the existing trans-continental route, products of China and Japan are transported with a rapidity which reduces the time from Yokohama to Liverpool to forty-seven days, or thirteen days less than the time consumed via the Suez Canal. The completion of the Northern Pacific Railroad to Paget Sound will, it is calculated, still further reduce this time by a saving of 700 miles of ocean travel between Japan and Puget Sound as compared with San Francisco.

Moreover, the Northern Pacific is in all essential respects an international enterprise, whose early completion will strengthen the unity and promote the prosperity of the Dominion of Canada, and render accessible the vast and fertile portion of British America which extends from Winnipeg to the Rocky Mountains.

During the season of 1871, six lines of steamers, comprising over 20 first-class vessels, plied regularly between Duluth and Canadian and American ports. Arrangements already entered into by the Hudson Bay Company make Duluth the base of their trade-comman cation with Manitoba and the country beyond.

By continuing the Northern Pacific eastward to the Sault Ste. Marie, the road will connect with the Canadian railroad system, and will assure a direct route from Puget Sound to Montrea; thus largely increasing the traffic of the railroads of the Dominion, and promoting the development of British American interests.

This company been formed for acquiring and working the
well-known valuable Benhar Coal Field, comprising more
than 2000 acres, held in lease by Mr. George Simpson, Coal-
master, Benhar, Lanarkshire and Linlithgowshire, with the
pits and mineral plant connected therewith. The minera!
field is nearly equidistant between Edingburgh and Glasgow,
as shown on the accompanying map. It is intersected by
branches of the North British and of the Caledonian Rail-
ways; and it is thus in direct connection with the large part
of Scotland and the shipping ports served by these railways,
was routes.
and to most of the large markets it has two competing rail.

The annexed report by Mr. John Geddes, of Edinburgh,
mining engineer (who was the Royal Commissioner who re-
ported on the Scotch Coal Fields in the recent Government
Inquiry as to the mineral rescources of the country), de-
scribes some of the principal features of this coal field.

Mr. William Armstrong, of Ferry Hill, has also made a
more detailed report on the field to Messrs. Chadwicks and
Co., which is of a highly favourable character,

and the Benhar No. 2 Seam, with the latter of which there is

widely known as superior household coal, and finds a ready
market in Edinburgh and in the south of Scotland, as far as
Hawick and Berwick-on-Tweed, and also in Dundee and
Aberdeen, and other places in the North. The coal-field has
hitherto been in the hands of several parties, and profitably
worked; but important economic advantages both in work-
ing and disposing of the coal are obtained by its being held
by one interest. For this reason, the arrangements have
been made which enable the present company to be formed.

The fields presents the advantages of a superior coal at
very moderate depth; little water in the workings; favour-
able situation for railway accommodation; easy access to
many markets; and a widely-established reputation. The
railway companies take delivery of the coal on the pit-

The quantity of coal of the No. 1 seam depth 20 to 35
fathoms) is estimated by Mr. Geddes at upwards of 4,350,000
tons, and of the No. 2 seam (depth 30 to 50 fathoms) at
providing an output from these two seams averaging
300,000 tons a year.

74 per cent. per annum on the capital of the company, with-
out taking into account any increase in the rate per cent. by

the gradual redemption of capital, or by investment of the
sinking fund that may be set apart for this purpose.

The profit at present realised averages upwards of four
shillings per ton on each ton of coal, taking large and small

No. 2 coal seam. The prices will of course fluctuate, but

The company assumes possession as from the 1st Jan. last.

partly in cash in proportions to be arranged with the direc-
tors), but 50,0007. thereof will be in deferred shares, taking
no dividend in any one year, unless the net profits be suth-
cient to pay 15 per cent. on the whole called-up capital of the
amount to this for two consecutive years, or in any two such
ordinary shares. But when, and as soon as the net profits

years together make an aggregate of 30 per cent. on the
same, the distinction between ordinary and vendors' shares
will cease.

Mr. Simpson is willing to undertake the duties of managing
director of the company.

The incorporation of the company will admit of their extending their operations to other fields, if the ompany so resolve. A copy of the memorandum of association is annexed. The leases are in the hands of the solicitors.
