the parsonage of the M, E. Church, was
taken possession of, and literally crowded
by the members and friends of the Pastor
and his estimable lady. After several pieces
of music, by our ccomplished organist,Mr.
Geo. Seibert, executed with superior abili
ty, Mr. Chas. A. McCullough, who had
been selected for the occasion arose, and in
a few porlinent and well timeLl remarks
presented Mrs. Smith, in behalf of her lady
friends and as a slight token of their appre
ciation of her estimable qualities both of
mind and heart, with a handsome Ameri
can Gold Watch, Chain and Pin ; also an
elegant Oil Photograph, (large size,) of her
reverened husband. Mr. Smith was presont
ed with a beautiful hair watch guard orna
mented with gold trimmings, and a hand
some cashmere wrapper; we also noticed a
number of gifts from individuals in which
each member of the family was remember
ed, such as a pocket-book in which we saw
several greenbacks, a handsome walking
cane, a barrel of flour, and a variety of other
articles too numerous to mention, the
whole probably amounting in value to the
sum of two hundred dollars. Mr. Smith re
ceived the presents in his usual felicitous
manner, his whole countenance beaming
with congeniality, after which the
company sang the "Old, Old Story," and
Mr. May led in prayer; and then the entire
company were invited to a collation much
to the gratification of all present. The even
ing was one long to be rentem bored. At a
Jut-' hour the company gradually dispersed
regretful of the tact that the next turn of
the itinerant wheel will remove Irma us our
Pastor and his family; who have become
endeared to us, by three years of successful
labor in our charge. "May Heaven's choic

Towy bttsr•rixo.-•On Thursday evening,
pursuant to call, n large number of citizens
met in the Town Hall to consider the pro
priety of establishing additional manufac
tories in this borough.
The meeting was organized by the selec
tion of Win. G. Patton, Esq., as Chairman,
Messrs. Supplee, Detwiler, Crane and Shit
man, Vice Presidents; T. W. Yocum and
W. Hayes Crier, Secretaries.
The chairman said ho did not call the
meeting, and hoped some one present
would explain the object.
Mr. 'Yocum said the call was published
in the //acid, and ho gave it au editorial
endorsement, but it was immaterial with
whom it originated ; the duty of this meet
ing is to act.
Mr. Detwiler said lie had a conversation
with Messrs. Brady, of Mount Joy, manu
facturers of small hardware, and they
would like to open up in this place, if prop
er inducements a-ere offered. He thought
something should be done towards secur
ing their removal to this place.
Mr. A. T. Kauffman thought Columbia
was the best place for manufacturers to lo
cate, to make anything for which iron is
used. Ile thought that there was no reason
why iron utensils should not, be mann-
iactured here as well as wooden bowls in
the Eastern States. 110 said inducements
should be held out to foreign capitalists, or
else our own moneyed men should be
urged to take their money out of bonds a nd
invest in manufactories. Ile thought the
Borough should odor one, two or three
acres of land in eligible places, to persons
who would ercct mamtfactories.
Mr. Yocum said a. committee ought to be
appointed to prepare, a circular setting
forth the tel of Columbia, in every
respect, and distribute them broad cast
over the land.
Mr. Patton said it has always been ad
mitted that Columbia has greater facilities
for manufactories than any other place
along the river. When the Safe Harbor
works were built, the proprietors desired
to locate in Columbia, but were deterred
by tho high price of land. About haven
or eight years ago, soma eight or ten men
started the Columbia rolling mill, It was
built and it helped the town, but did not
pay for a few years. It is now doing well
and is of great benefit to the business men,
and to all connected with the town.
Mr. Detwilerthought a committee should
be appointed to view the different locations
in the town, and ILSCelqUill at what price
they could be obtained.
Mr. A. J. Kauffman thought that the
land should be purchased and presented to
persons u•Iro would use it. lie also said
that at the foot of town we had a water
power unexcelled in the Caned States.
Mr. Brady, of Mount .Toy said their firm
had been looking at Columbia for a long
time,on account of its excelient advantages
for shipping. They manufacture small
tttudwut•o altogether—no piece weighing
over twenty pounds. They do not receive
the props: encouragement at Mount Joy,
and they think that Columbia is their best
point, having the Baltimore, Philadelphia
and Western markets right at their hands.
They feel positive that they could do tt
good business in this place. They pi opose
establishing works similar to the Harvest
ers at Reading. They want to come to Co
lumbia because they will be suited among
furnaces and rolling mills.
On motion of Mr. Yocum, the following
committees were appointed:
Cs inatillee on Rites and Prices 01 Land .--
S. S, lletwiler,lieo• Bogle,lferbert Thomas,
Nourse and J. G. hoes.
Best Modes of Invest mem% —Robort Crane,
S. Allison, S. Truseott, C. S. Kauffman and
\V. IL Pfaider.
Committee on CorrcAponcience.--J. W.
Yoctnn, W. G. Case, Jim. 13. Bachman,
Goo. - Young, Jr., and Dr. Craig.
Mr. Crane _thought the committees on
sites and prices should examine the loca
tions and rep ttt the price and for what
particular branch such location or loca
tions would be desirable.
Mr. C. S. Kauffma n. said he could go out,
and in twenty-five minutes could find lo
cations for twenty rolling mills, and the
best in the country. The surrounding
country abounds in favorable sites and the
only question is, can tae land be obtained,
and he had no doubt it could.
The only trouble is with the people.—
They must put their shout ter to the wheel.
Every;morchant should be at this ineetin,
but very tew of them are here ; they are
afraid that it would cost them twenty-live
cents. The new Railing Mill has a been
started by Mr. Case ; it is a great advan
tage to the town, but nobody gives him
credit; but if lie started another store
(winch he had a perfect right to) a hue and
cry would be raised against him.
Mr. Patton said that the Sasquehanna
iron Co., paid out about .320,000 per month.
which was expended in Cotuiiibin, and all
this infamy comes from abroad ; only
about x•_'oo is received monthly from the;
place) tor iron.
Mr. Crane said we had to pay tribute to
Bituminous coal, but a project is now on
foot in Philadelphia to do away with this,
and he hoped it would succeed.
Mr. Young said it was a rule that we
shout i creep before walking.
Our efforts should be directed towards
getting Inevhaffics 11.3 re. Invite smaller
manulacturers and their trade will increase
with the town.
Mr. C. S. knulrman said the best thing
the borough could or would be to buy
acres or land, ev. n it they had to pay
per acre—although so•ne tax payers would
grumble, and publish it )ver the country,
that the land would be go; en away to en -
terprisin.t . manufactures.
