RAILROAD MEETING AT MOUNT
lON.-At a large and respectable meeting of
citizens of Mount Union, and Huntingdon
inty and vicinity, held at the American
use, on Tuesday eveniug, the 14th lest—
object of the meeting, to wit : the extend
: of aid and encouragement to the Miramar
n Company in their effort to develop the
;t mineral resource of this region of the
ate, was briefly stated by John Dougherty,
1., when, on his motion, Dr. George W.
ompson, Chief Burgess of Mount Union,
s called to the Chair, and John li. Light
r, Esq., of Shirleysburg, appointed Secre
Col. Daniel V. Ahl, the President of the
mpany, then explaiped to the entire satisfac
n of all present why the surveys in this re
m were made by this company. He ex.
essed to the meeting his acknowledgment
Senator Petrikin for the interest manifested
him in b.•half of. this enterprise. The
seting was then addressed by General A. L.
essell, of Harrisburg, Captain Joseph Mifflin,
ief engineer of the company, Rec. Mr.
sorehead and John Dougherty, Esq., of
mint Union, showing the facilities which the
!ered for the construction of a railroad and
e great importance of the contemplated
iks as parts of a great through route be
•een the East and West.
It was then on motion of Mr. Dougherty,
eeolred, that specimens of the various ores
' the district be sent to the Executive at
arrisburg. and to his Honor Mayor Brush,
' Pittsburg, to enable the iron men of the
Late to examine for themselves the kind and

The following letter from his Excellency
Ain W. Geary, whi-h, although intended for
meeting contemplated to be held at the

'ol. Alit, for the information of the meeting :
HARRISBURG, March 9, 1871.
Messrs. D. V. Ahl (President,) Cuyrus
efries, James Kelly, John Dougherty, Cont
i:tee of the Miramar iron and railroad com
any : GENTLEMEN-1 am in receipt of your
ind invitation to attend the forthcoming
meting of your company. It would afford
se great pleasure to be with you nt the time
nd place you indicate ; but pressing official
uties demand my constant presence in Har
isburg. The objects contffinplated by your
ssociation command my warmest sympathies,
.nd you may be assured of my hehrty co
peration wherever it will tend toward their
* * * * * * *
The purpose of your company is to open
another enterprise for the still further develop
nest of the immense coal regions of Pennsyl
:anis. Beneath your feet is a mineral deposit
,f great thickness and immense value, which
MIS heretofore been untouched by the enter
wise of man. Situated between the Juniata
and the Potomac rivers, the Baltimore and
Ohio and the Pennsylvania railroads, this
valuable mineral region has remained uncle
:eloped until now. Its richness has as yet
been unfelt in the vast aggregate of Pennsyl
vania's material products. But commercial
rivalry has had its day—the greed of one sec
tion being no longer able or willing to stay
another from enjoying the advantages afforded
by the open markets of the country. Wash
ington, Baltimore and Philadelphia, no longer
jealous of the expanding powers of each other,
will henceforth unite in a cordial mutual
effort to make this region what Philadelphia,
New York and Boston have made of the coal
fields of the Schuylkill. To op;•n up this field
for the Pennsylvania railroad at Mount Union
to Mount Pleasant iron -works, thirty-two
miles of railroad must be made, by which a
continuous railroad connection will be secured
from Clearfield, in this State, via Cowan's Gap
and Hagerstown to Washington city and Balti
more, and to open a short and direct route
fom New York through the anthracite coal
fields and the Broad Top editl basin to Cincin
nati and - Yittsburg. via the East Broad Ton and
uonnelsville railroad, a short link of twenty
miles would unite in one chain much of the
tonnage and travel from the capital of the
United States to the Canadas, as well as from
Connelleville and Baltimore and Ohio railroads
to Philadelphia. . .
Ry this ',Elute facilities to a splendid market
would be opended eastward and southward for
the East Broad Top coal. At the same time,
from the same enterprise, the great centre of
the iron manufactories of the country would
receive additions to its property by the new
demands which would be made for -its pro
ducts. Here are deposits in close proximity,
the levant, the fossiliferous and hematite iron
ores, bituminous and semi-anthracite coal,
auroral and acalient limestone. Here are
found abundant water powers and a productive
agricultural region, heretofore destitute of
efficient outlets to markets; and in the midst
of the great grass belt, the source of unfail
ing fertility, with a climate almost unsurpass
ed in beauty and salubrity. All these magni
ficent natural advantages are the gifts of God
to man. It is for your energy to make of them
the blessings which they were designed to be
by their Creator; and when you have tested
your ability in improving and developing this
great region of wealth you will only realize
the greatness of your power and the extent of
your possession. It is on this account that 1
regard your railroad enterprise as one of the
most important ever attempted in the State.
The area of the Broad Top coal fields is
eighty square miles. The coal is semi anthra
cite, makes more steam, it is alleged, by forty
per cent. then any other coal, and can be
used without coking for smelting ore. It is
admitted by all practical men to be very desir
able for fuel. These qualities will not fail to
give it great attraction in the market.
Broad Top is sixty miles nearer Baltimore
by the Western Maryland railroad than is
Cumberland. From East Broad Top coal basin
to the Pennsylvania canal at Mount Union
there will be a saving of twenty-five miles,
as compared with the Huntingdon and Broad
Top railroad, while this field is nearer tide
water by thirty miles than are the Allegeny
coal treasures. Every foot hill in this region
is rich with deposits of fossiliferous ore.
I repeat these are the advantages insured to
you by the locality which has been selected as
the theatre of your enterprise. As you prose
cute that enterprise to its extent, will you re
alize the value of these advantages; and as
you are brought fairly into competition with
like resources in other parts of the country, I
do not fear but you will bear away your full
share of prosperity. I consider it my duty,
both as a civil officer and a citizen, to en
courage railroads wherever there Is the capital
to pay for, and the trade to support them.
They are the arteries through which pass the
true blood of business, health and the more
such channels we create, the greater is the in•
crease of business in every direction.
I have read with great interest your letter
to the chief burgess of Mechanicsburg, by
which I learn it is your purpose, in connection
with this enterprise, to construct a road along
the base of the South mountain to connect
with the Cumberland Valley railroad, afford
ing thereby facilities for the development of
that region, which is known to abound in im
mense beds of magnetic hematite and other
With renewed assurances of my warmest
sympathies for the success of your laudable
undertaking and of my personal regard, I am,
gentlemen, very respectfully and truly yours,

the meeting be teuilerA his Excellency Gov
Geary, for the interest manifested in the wel

HUNTINGDON AS A MAN UPACTI:II IXO
POINT.-Several gentlemen, who have given
the subject considerable attention, furnish us
the following facts in regard to Huntingdon as
a manufacturing point:
The population of the borough and suburbs,
is about 3,500. It is located on the Juniata
river, at the junction of the Huntingdon and
Broad Top . R. R., with the Penn'a. R. It. COI
miles west of Philadelphia, and 153 east of
Pittsburgh. The Pennsylvania Canal extends
through the borough, and affords cheap trans
portation to and from the seaboard, the An
thracite regions, and other parts of the inte
rior of Pennsylvania and New York.
Two distinct and well developed veins of
Fossil, and deposites of Ilematite ore extend
all along the base of Tussey Mountain, paral
lel to which the B. T. It. R., passes at distan
ces varying from one to three miles. These
ores are now mined, and delivered by wagons,
to the 13. T. It. R., at ll'Connellstown, 5 miles ;
Pleasant Grove, 7 miles, and Marklesburg, 12
miles from Huntingdon, and carried to Johns
town, Hollidaysburg and Bennington, by Penn
sylvania It. R. and Canal to Danville. The
ore land at these points is owned by numerous
perzons, priu,ipally the farmers of the vicinity
and leases can be obtained IA moderate rates. A
tram-road from M'Connellstcwn, to and along
the base of the mountain, could be cheaply
constructed and would materially reduce the
present cost of ore. At and beyond Marbles
burg, R. Hare Powell, Esq., is now running
drifts and tram-ways, with the intention of
locating Furnaces, on B. T. R. R., near the
ore, or at Huntingdon, as may, upon a full in
quiry in regard to procuring a variety of ores,
access to other coal regions, sites, water, dc.,
to be found most expedient.. Mr. Powell ex
pects to have such a large supply of cre from
the drifts he is now making and others in con
templation, that he will have ore to sell. Near
Bloody Run, on the Broad Top Railroad, the
Fossil and Hematite ores are in close proxim
ity, and the limbic Coal and Iron Company,
obtain their supply here, at a cost of $2.09 per
ton including freight. Beyond Bloody Run
lies a region exceedingly rich in iron ores, and
which is now being developed by the Bedford
and Bridgeport Railroad, which it is expected
will be finished by the Fall of 1871.
In addition to.the foregoing ores, accessible
by the Broad Top Railroad, ores of different
varieties, valuable for mixing and manufactur
ing superior iron, arc accessible by both
Pennsylvania Railroad and Canal, within short
distances, cast and west of Huntingdon;
among these are the well-known Springfield
and Dorsey Hematite ores, and the ores in the
vicinity of Mt. Union and Newton Hamilton,
all of which are now mined, and some of them
for distant furnaces.
Broad Top Coal, which makes good coke,
can be obtained by railroad, at an average dis•
tance of 50 miles, while the Philipsburg, and'
Allegheny Mountain Coal, both excellent for
iron making, are accessible by P.' IL IL, at
slightly enhanced distances.
Limestone of superior quality is found in
bluffs immediately upon the Canal and P. R.
R., for indefinite distance, commencing 2/,
miles west of Huntingdon, and almost every
station on the Broad Top Railroad.
Fire Brick of superior quality are now made
in large quantities at Sandy Ridge, in the same
vicinity as the Philipsburg - Coal, before men
tioned, 38 miles from Huntingdon by Penn
Sites can be had near or within our borough
limits, of equal or greater advantage than that
of Riddlesburg, in regard to access by Rail
road or Canal, dumpage, water, 'disposal of
cinder, (at one the cinder can be used in er
larging the site to the extent of two or more
acres,) and other minor particulars.
The success of the furnaces now in opera
tion at Riddlesburg, on the B. T. R. R., demon
strate, we think, that iron can be made cheap
er in this region than, perhaps, any other in
in the United States ; and taking into consid
eration our location, facilities of obtaining a
variety of ore, coal from three nearly equi
distant regions, proximity to limestone, good
markets, school, churchs, and other incidents
of a thriving town on the main line of rail
road; we claim for this particular point—Hun
tingdon—a decided advantage.

The principal items of expense in operatieg
rolling mills, arc labor, and the fuel used in
puddling, and producing steam power for ma
chinery. As regards labor of this kind, it
commands about the same price all over the
country, except in cities, where it is enhanced
by high rents, and cost of living. With re
spect to the item of fuel, there could be no
better point than Huntingdon, as it is the
central point for the raw materials used, viz :
Bituminous coal and pig metal. Nearly all
the rolling mills cast of us, even to the sea
board, are operated with bituminous coal, a
very large proportion of which comes from
this immediate vicinity, costing when deliver
ed to them, $3.50 to $6 per ton, while it can
be delivered in Huntingdon, in large quantities
at less than $2.00 per ton. The saving of
transportation alone would make a handsome
profit on rolling iron, while the reputation of
the ore produced in the Juniata region, and
the great faciltics for transportation in
every direction, would give it an excellent
market from the start. The same reasons
which apply to manufactured iron would make
this an advantageous point for almost any
branch of industry requiring steam power.

and from thence to Roaring Spring, and the
route is located. Its continuance to Martins

and the final connection with the 11.. k 11. T.
road is in the future.
We clip the above from the Blair County
Radical, and we have ;assurance from private
sources to the same effect. We feel a decided
interest in the construction of this work, pass
ing, as it will, by many places of hallowed
memory, that are near and dear to ns, and yet,
toe feel keenly that when it is completed it
rill be nothing more nor less than a rivalroad to
the Broad Top. There is no denying this. We
may try to shut our e .cs to this fact as much
as we please, but this is the long, broad and
short of it. The Morrison's Cove Railroad
means to connect with the Broad Top R. It.
at Mount Dallas or at some point between that
place and Hopewell. And when this is done
its managers will compete for the passenger
-travel and carry off all the scary old ladies
and nervous old gentlemen that may desire to
travel by way of Bedford east. Hadn't our
Broad Top people better put their house in
order? It will take some time to complete
the Morrison's Cove Road and in the meanthne

THE SOUTHERN PENNSYLVANIA , RAlL
nom> PROJECT.—John Dougherty, Esq., of Mt.
Union, this county, sends us a copy of a letter
written l.v him to lion. Samuel Calvin and
John Cre-swell, Esq., of Hollidaysburg, under
date of Mount Colon, March 4, 1871, published
in the Urges! :r, with a reqcest to publish, which
we would be pleased to do, if our space were
not so very limited ; me will, however, do the
next be :t thing—condense it.
Mr. Dougherty, speaking of a survey of a
route to connect the Cumberland Valley Rail
road with tine Pittsburg and Connellsville
ro - ad, says
“When this road is built it will open a
_trough rally:ay from the Baltimore and Ohio.
and CormAlsville and Pittsburg Railroads to
the Cumberland Valley and Pennsylvania Rail
roads. By these roads the trade and travel
from the southern counties of Pennsylvania
will reach Philadelphia; anthracite coal will
be shipped via :Sunbury and Lewistown Rail-,
road, and thence via Pennsylvania Railroad'
and Mount Union and Sideling Hill gap to the
Potomac, and Ohio Valley, At or near Hope
well, your Morrison Cove and Hollidaysbnq
Railroad should intersect the Cumberland
Valley aud Huntingdon and Broad Top Rail
road line, and thus (when built) open a short
low grade railroad from Ildlidaysburg fo
"Captain Joseph Mifilin's corps of engineers
will in a few clays hence, reach Hopes - ell.
Would it not be adviscable that the citizens of
Blair county should send a committee to meet
Col. D. V. Ahl, and his corps of engineers at
llopeWell, and arrange where it will be mos'
advantageous to - ntersect the Huntingthn and
Broad Top Railroad so as to open up a direct
railway route from Altoona via Hollidaysburg
and Morrison's Cove to Washington City ens
"Now whilst the citizens of Franklin. Ful
ton and Huntingdon counties are at work in
surveying the only unpro , ided fink in a chaise
of railway from Cumberland Valley to Pitts

the mail-farrier between Huntingdon and
Stone Valby, was making his usual Friday

the Warm Springs, at a small stream along the
way, his attention was arrested by two men,
one of whim appeared as if he lied just been
taking drink and was in the act of getting up
froM the eater. As he approached them, one
of the met seized his horse and demanded his
money. Ile replied that hehad none to which
they rejoited that they knew better. They im

to deposit for John M. Smith I.: Son,' Robert

they gobbled lip, but at present we do not
know the amount. One of the men was sup

IitIiEVOLENT BEQUESTS.—Miss Maria
Steele, a maiden lady, died in this place on
Monday, the 13th instant. Some time in No
vember last she made a will, in which, after
bequeathing a couple of legacies, she bequeath
ed $2OOO to the Home for Little Wanderers,
loeate'd in Philadelphia, and she divided the
remainder of her estate equally between The
Lincoln University for the theological educa.
tion' of colored youths, located in Chester
county, and the Freedman's Aid Society of the
Methodist Episcopal Church. It is not known
what her estate will be worth. It is supposed
that it will not fall short of $5OOO. Miss Steele,
we learn, was not a member of the M. E.
Church, but said, in her lifetime, that the
membership of this Society woo so much more
active than those of other churches that she
was induced to make the distinction.
