THE MANCHESTER SHIP CANAL. MESSRS. ROTHSCHILD TO FINANCE THE LOAN. With a private prospectus for the issue of £ij,OOO,OOO share capital and £2.000,000 borrowing powers, the directors of the Manchester Ship Canal have issued a map of considerable interest. It covers an area of above 100 miles north and south by 75 miles east and west, the nearest approach to the centre of which is occupied by Macclesfield. This busy and populous district reaches from Skipton on the north to Wolverhampton on the south, and from Rotherham and Sheffield on the east to Wigan, St. Helen's, and Chester on the west. The numerous towns that it contains are represented by circles, of sizes proportionate to the populations; and the total number of the inhabi- tants amounts to 27 per cent. The City editor of the Pall Mall Gazette says :— There is a rumour abroad that Messrs. Rothschild have undertaken to finance the Manchester Ship Canal Scheme. If there be any truth in such a statement, the fate of the canal will not wait long on the public for subscriptions, for its financial success will be immediately assured, and the capital will as a consequence be taken up in the bulk, and very little be left in the shape of J610 lots for the humble citizen, who, it was expected, would have come forward and subscribed for this semi-national project after the style of the French- men who hand their small savings over to M. do Lessees.
