OPENING OF TOE BEDFORD & BRIDGE
PORT RAILROAD.—BEDFORD, September 23d,
1871.—1 arrived at Huntingdon on Saturday
morning last at five o'clock, and shortly after
seven left the depot of the Huntingdon and
Broad Top railroad, in company with a large
number of ladies and gentlemen to witnes the
ceremonies attending the opening of that por
tion of the Bedford and Bridgeport railroad
from Mt. Dallas to Bedford. A brass band of
most excellent musicians accompinied the
party. All along the route accessions were
made to our number, and when we reached
Saxton, another car was attached, crowded
with persons destined, like ourselves, to par
ticipate in the opening of the road. At Hope
well, r.nother crowded car cf people, accom
panied by a full band of music, was attached
to our train, and at Bloody Run we were
joined by more people and more music. At
Mt. Dallas, the Bedford people, numbering
over one thousand persons, had come in pas
senger cars and in burden cars to escort the
excursionists to town. They had with them a
band of music, and any number of flags, ban
ners and wreaths of flowers. The new road
from Mt. Dallas to Bedford is about eight
miles long, follows the course of the Rays
town branch of the Juniata, and winds along
the base of Cove'mountain, to its present ter
minus at Bedford. It is well made, solid as
the everlasting rock upon which it is laid,
and is substantially bridged.
Half an hour brought us to the end of the
road, opposite the residence of Dr. George W.
Anderson. Here were assembled the wealth,
the beauty, and the stamina—the working
classes—of the county. Cheer after cheer of
welcome went up from the congregated mass.
Nearly every man, woman and boy had flags
in their hands, presenting a gay and joyous
scene. An arch of evergreens and flowers had
been thrown over the track, on which were
PRECURSOR OF PROSPERITY.

These decorations were evidently the work
of some city florists, employed expressly for
the occasion. A flag pole, nearly an hundred
feet high, a fair specimen of the timber now
growing in abundance in this mountain re
gion, from which floated the stars and stripes,
was planted near the road. A procession was
formed and the company marched to the music
of four brass bands to the Washington Hotel,
from the portico of which Hon. William P.
Schell and Hon. John Cessna, President of the
road, delivered discourses full of information
and interest to all. Hr. Cessna, upon whose
shoulders the building of the road mainly
rested, traced the progress of the enterprise
from its first inception to the present time, and
gave a detailed account of the labor employed
and the time consumed in its accomplishment
thus far. After the speaking an adjournment
took place, and many of the strangers visited
the Mineral Springs a mile and a quarter south
of the town. These Springs are owned by the
Anderson family, and are most valuable prop
erty. Previous to the opening of the road to
this place they could have been purchased for
three hundred thousand dollars, now they can
not be had for less than five hundred thousand;
so you see how the introduction of railroads
advance the pike of real estate away out here
among the mountains.
took place in the evening at the Washington
House, the parlors of which were thrown wide
open to the public, and everything was free as
air. Tile ladies vied with each other in their
efforts to please. The tables fairly groaned
under the fat of the land, and luxuries from
afar were in great abundance. The markets
of Philadelphia, Baltimore and Pittsburg were
laid under zontribution for supplies for the oc
casion. Everybody was pleased with every
body, and among the most delighted of the
many present was your old friend Major
Washabaugh, who, years ago, saw the im
portance of a railroad to Bedford, and to whose
exertions the success of the project owes
The editors of the town and those from
abroad, were properly cared for. At the right
of the president sat Mr. Lutz of the Inquirer,
who was flanked by Maj. Elliott of the Bedford
County Press, and Mr. Durborrow of the Hunt
don Journal, and still further down appeared
the genial face of Mr. Mengel, one of the pro
prietors of the Gazette. They all did good
work, and talked but little.
At twelve o'clock midnight, an adjourn
ment took place, and all retired to their homes
pleased and gratified with au event which
places Bedford county, and particularly the
town of Bedford—a town which has stood al
most still for the last hundred years—in a
position to be hereafter ranked among the
enterprising business places in our good old
Enclosed find a programme of the exercises,
printed on satin by Messrs. Lutz & Jordan, of
the Inquirer, from which you can form a good
idea of the interesting event.
It was gratifying to your correspondent to
learn that every property owner in this town
is a subscriber to the road. The mechanic and
the farmer understood their interest, and sub
scribed liberally. The latter, who received
twelve cents a pound for his beef, and ten cents
a dozen for his eggs, will now receive double
and trebel these sums for these products—his
beef will bring twenty cents, his hen fruit
thirty, and the price of other produce will in
In closing my account of this great jubilee,
it is proper that I should say a word in com
mendation of Jon,: McKizzles, EsQ., Superin
tendent of the Huntingdon and Broad Top
Railroad, and his subordinates. Mr. McKillips
was unrelenting in his attention to his duties,
and his efforts to make all happy who partici
pated in the excursion were a complete suc
cess. I acknowledge my indebtedness to him
for several courtesies.
[We fear our correspondent has colored the
most of his account of the opening of the road,
a little too high. We happened to be present
on the occasion referred to, and while we ac
knowledge that all be has written should have
taken place, we failed to see it.—En.

CAMP GROUND FIXED-After all Mc-
Veytown loses the.Juniata Valley Camp Meet
ings. The report that certain grounds one
mile this side of McVeytown had been chosen
was premature. The committee, consisting of
Presiding Elder Hamlin, and Messrs. McMur
ray of Tyrone, Moore and Norton, of Newton
Hamilton, Moorehead and nosensteel of Mt.
Union, Wilson and Niece of kleveytown, and
Pardee of Mifflintown, representing the Juni
ata l'alley Camp Meeting Association, held a
meeting on Tuesday, of last week, at Newton
Hamilton, and consummate' the purchase of a
tract of 20 acres of land, lying half a mile
north of the railroad, at that place, on lands
formerly known as the Vanzandt farm, but
now owned by Mrs. Hattie C. Lamm, and the
citizens of the town and vicinity donated, in
addition, 10 acres. The price paid for the
grounds was $lOO per acre, and the Associa
tion has the privilege of enlarging their
grounds hereafter at pleasure, at the same
price. It is a beautiful level grove, accessible
from all points by railroad or private convey.
ances. Hey. J. C. Moore, of Newton Hamilton,
has been appointed to receive subscriptions to
the capital stock of the Association. The
price of shares 13,...s been fized at $25 each.—

The Committee take pleasure in reading our
report that we have had on exhibition the largest
and finest selection of horses that has ever been on

we will have very fine and fast stock in the course
of a year or two—as soon as the stock can mature
and come to use. And as for Class No. 2, Common
Stock, it has been improved very much with the
cross of the Lightner, Morgan, Green Mountain
Morgan, lately owned by Dr. 11. L. Brown, and
the Norman, and we find the traces of the old
Chester Lyon still remaining in our county, which
was amongst the best draft stock we have ever
had in the county.

The committee would say that the display in
this department exceeded in quantity and quality
anything ever witnessed by these either at county
or State exhibitions, and that amongst the numer
ous varieties on exhibition they found it very dif
limit to 'discriminate. Notwithstanding the care
exercised on the part of the committee we fear that
injustice may have been done to 601.11 C of the ex
hibitors on account of the goods being handled,
and in many instances the cards displaced.

ROUGHS IN THE CARS.—For several
week a number of roughs, principally from
Huntingdon county have been trying to run
the H. A: B. T. It. It. to suit themselves. They
generally loaf about Huntingdon during the
day and when sufficiently full of "tanglefoot"
get on the evening train, which leaves Hun
tingdon at 5:35 to ride to their homes along
the line of the road: Once aboard they ignore
all railroad rules, have no respect whatever
for other passengers, and particularly delight
in blasphemy and blackguardism in the pres
ence of ladies. Petsuasion and appeals from
the officers of the train have no effect what
ever unless it be to make them worse. A short
time ago several of these parties were aboard
and after the officers had done all in their
power to subdue them, but in vain, Conductor
Rahm stopped the train and had them put off.
This incensed them very much, and on Mon
day evening last they again mounted the
train to "have it over." A short time after
the train started and in an unguarded moment,
Mr. Rham was "punched" behind the ear by
one of the roughs and sent reeling to the end
of the car. Recovering himself, he knocked
his antagonist down and would have given
him a good trouncing had he not been inter
fered with. The rough, released, was admit
ted into the baggage car by promising to be
have himself. He sat down, docile as yon
please, apparently, but cat-like watching for
an opportunity to play a foul game. He was
not long in waiting, for baggage master Col
lins, apprehending no danger from that quar
ter, sat or kneeled down with his back to the
rough, to examine his manifest papers. As
soon as the rough saw this, he sprang from
his seat, and grabbing Collins at the back of
the neck and arm, made a desperate effort to
pitch him from the cur, the train moving at
the rate of twenty-two miles an hour, and
would have succeeded in his designs, had not
Collins fortunately clinched to a chain which
was suspended from the top, and to the side
of the door. Collins, gaining his feet, felled
the rascal with a single blow and had him put
off the train. The next night, Tuesday, the
roughs congregated at Saxton station, intent
on having revenge, but there were too many
railroad hands and other well disposed outsi
ders to warrant them in attacking the train.
The above facts we learn from the conductor,
and others. A pretty state of affairs indeed.'
Hand the offenders over to the law. The time
has not yet arrived when respectable people
are to succumb to rowdies and villains, and
there are always enough law-abiding, respect
able gentlemen on any train who will assist
the Conductor and his men in putting down
such scoundrels. We hope to hear nothing
more in this line. Bedford Inquirer.
The Inquirer is respectfully informed that
the roughs in question are old offenders and
well known to the Woodberries, Broad Top
and Hopewell townships, Bedford county.
They don't belong to us. We join you, how
ever, in urging the Railroad Company to bring
these scoundrels to justice.
A BARN BURNED.—Friction of the
Gearing of a Threshing Machine the Cause.—The
barn of Samuel Peachey, of Menno township,
Mifflin county, was burned to the ground, on
Wednesday, the 4th inst., with all its contents,
among which were three colts belonging to
Mr. Peachy, and a valuable horse, the proper
ty of a Mr. Yoder. The fire originated from
the friction of some of the gearing of a thresh
ing machine. The sheaf-cutter discovered
evidences of fire in the straw near him and
pulling away some sheaves the fire rushed up
in his face and in fifteen minutes the roof fell
in. The roof of the house was ignited by the
cinders, and it required all the efforts of the
persons present to save the house—the roof
partly burned off—which a ccounts for the fact
that the contents of the barn were entirely
Consumed. The loss is between four and five
thousand dollars. No insurance.
THE BEDFORD AND BRIDGEPORT RAIL
ROAD.—The first car ran through to Bedford,
from Huntingdon on the Juniata, September
19th, and the famous springs are now in all
rail connection with the world. In a few
months more the road from Bedford south, to
Bridgeport at the elbow of Will's creek, on
the Baltimore, Connells.ville and Pittsburgh
Railroad, will be in running order. Then
visitors from the South can reach Bedford di
rect from Washington, via the new railroad up
the Potomac to the Point of Rocks station on
the Baltimore and Ohio, keeping on up the
Potomac to Cumberland, and up Will's creek
to Bridgeport, instead of going all the way
round by Baltimore, York, Harrisburg and
Huntingdon, as they do now.
But travel to the Springs is a very small
affair compared with quite another kind of
freight for which this railway has been built.
Cumberland coal has had no outlet except
down the Potomac valley to Washington by
canal and to baltimore by railroad.
Cumberland coal is the very best of the
semi bituminous coals, coming as it does from
the Great Bed of the Upper Coal Series, the
Pittsburgh bed of Western Pennsylvania, the
bed which yields the Westmoreland gas coals
and the Connellsville coke, and known on the
Potomac as the George's Creek Bed, 15 and 16
Last year a million and a half of this superb
fuel was sent to market down the little branch
railroad of the Consolidated Companies. This
year two million and a quarter will pass over
the road. if the autumn weather prove mild
and keep open the canal, it is quite possible
that by the end of the fiscal year, December
31, 1871, the sum total may foot up nearly two
millions and a half.
Col. Scott guarantees accommodations on
the Bridgeport and Huntingdon through con
nection line with the Juniata and the Penn
sylvania Railroad, for at least one million tons.
This million need not come out of the total
named above. No less coal will descend the
Potomac to Baltimore, and be carried forward
by barges and steamers to New York and New
England. The Consolidated Companies arc
prepared and perfectly able to mine out an
extra million per annum.
The effect will be, that Cumberland coal
will become a favorite fuel in ➢fiddle and
Eastern Pennsylvania, and will begin to exer
cise a decided influence on the anthracite coal
trade ; not a great one, propably ; but a posi
tive and beneficial one for the coal-consuming
industries and for the coal•consuming public.
Cumberland coal can never come into gen
eral use for city fires, because it smokes and
smuts ; and because anthracite is close at hand
and more abundant in the market as well as
in the ground. But it will be well to give
considerable numbers of people the chance to
change from anthracite to semi bituminous,
whenever they see cause to do so ; and the
numbers doing this will always be large
enough to check the unnatural, unnecessary and
mischievous fluctuations in the anthracite
market.—U. S. Railroad and Mining Register.
GOING AROUND THE STONERSTOWN
BRIDGE. —The Huntingdon & Broad Top Rail
road Company are having an experimental
survey made with a view to changing the line
of the road so as to avoid the high bridge at
Stonerstown. We understand that there is a
fair prospect of obtaining an easy and cheap
route so as to avoid the high bridge without
increasing the distance or grades. Such a
change will add largely to the travel of the
road as many timid people now avoid the road
because they fear to cross the bridge, though
assured of its safety. The H. & B. Company
are wide awake to the necessity of preparing
their road for the large increase of business
which it will receive on the completion of the
B. k B. road.—Bedford Inqueor.

orchard of Michael S. Ritchey, of Snake Spring
township, which measures fifteen inches in
