their returns on the day the return judges j
met, but waited until next day so that a :
lazy or ignorant copperhead judge might

a majority, that it becomes a grave ques-'j

strong/e/o (it sc pill. It will be remem
bered that some years ago < hief Justice
"Woodward, with the sanction of two
other copperheads, laid down the law that
soldiers could not vote because the law
required the voter to reside and vote in
the precinct of his election district. That
decision remains law to this day, and ap
plies to every voter in this State unless
in the military service as subsequently
provided by tlie constitutional amend
ment. Granville, Deny, Wayne and
Oliver do not vote in their district#, and
are therefore eiearly violating a constitu
tional decision made by judges of the
true tpperhe.ad stamp, and consequently'
ili< if elections are null and void in law.
Under that decision, NO COURT OF
JUSTICE COULD HEW IT ATE A
MOM EXT in throwing out those districts
in ease of a contest, and thus Banks and
Ross for Associate Judges, Kearns for
Commissioner, and Butler for Auditor,
would be defeated, and McEwen elected
by ait on* majority, which pauper and
deserter votes would soon settle. How
would you like a dose of your own medi- '
cine, ye praters about law? The Repub- I
liettn party, altliotigh knowing that the i
late election in this county was carried
by palpable frauds, and believing that
the republican ticket lmd a majority of ;
tte resident legal vote, submitted to
what appeared to be the majority; they '

past campaign with patience and good

reason and truth, but there is a point '
where "forbearance ceases tobeavirtue,"
ami therefore we warn that party it is not I
yet too late to give it more law than its
d- magogues bargained for when, under a
frivolous pretext, they endeavored to set
aside the will of a majority.

The Chief Engineer, F. C. Arms, Esq.
a gentleman of great experience and high
reputation for ability and integrity, is now
surveying an experimental fine" having
commenced at Lewistown on Tuesday
the 10th inst.
1 lie main object to be attained by build-
J ing this Railroad, is a cheap "and direct
route of traffic and travel between the
| Valleys of the Susquehanna and theJu
; niata and their tributaries. At present
| no direct communication exists between
| these rich and populous valleys east qf
| Tyrone, except by country roads well nigh
I impassable in the early"spring and late
j autumn, and thus the imports and exports
of the intermediate region are burdened
by a wretched system of transportation
abandoned almost everywhere else in
Pennsylvania. These two great valleys
are necessary to each other ; the Husque
hanna abounds in luml>er of the finest
quality, and in anthracite ami authraei
tous coals, but is deficient in iron ores, ex
cept the fossiliferous variety, and the un
reliable eamonates of the coal measures.
The Juniata is sparsely timbered, hut is
exceedingly rich in fossiliferous iron ore
in the per-oxide of iron or hematite, and
heavy seams of the proto-carbonate of
iron, ranging from three to fifteen feet in
width (Rogers' Geo. Rep't for 1810.V
The recent perfect success of the Gla
morgan Furnace at Lewistown, in yield
ing, from a combination of these three
ores, fused with Anthracite and hot blast,
a metal fully equal to Scotch pig metal,
demonstrates to every thoughtful mind
that cheap coal is a necessity for the Ju
niata, and cheap hematite iron ore for the
Susquehanna, and that each of these no
ble valleys will be the seat of vast iron
It lining clear that an interchange of
commodities will benefit the people of
both valleys and the region lying between
them, we next inquire, can a direct prac
ticable Railroad I/ine be located from val
ley to valley? I answer, that one of the
vert/ bent tine* in Retinst/lvania van fhtis
be located: From Lewistown on the Ju
niata, to Selinsgrove on tiie Slisquehan
11a, 47 miles, THERE IS NOT ONE SERIOUS
NATURAE OBSTACLE ; for directness, light
grade, easy curvature, cheap cross-ties and
ballast, it is a remarkably tine line. The
maximum grade- wili not exceed 50 feet
to the mile, and this for hut a short dis
distance; the general grade will he
from 20 to 25 feet to the mile. The
middle route passes N. east from Lewis- i
town, crossing Jack's Creek at LiMeys' j
Mill by a single span bridge; about two i
miles thence with a gentle curve it passes ;
through a break in the ridges into the val
ley of Middle Creek, aud descends this,
with a very light grade to the Susquehan
na. The North and South Lines along j
the Hanks of Jack's aud Shade Mountains j
are very line, hut they are longer than the ;
Middle route, and they leave the main i
body of cultivated land on one side of the
line, while the Middle route lias rich ag- j
ricultural and grazing lands on either side
for the greater part of its length. Reach
ing the Susquehanna we Hud a serious ob
stacle —a wide river—but I learn from
very good authority that thepeoplearound
the Eastern terminus of the road will sub
scribe heavily to a bridge on the Susque
hanna if it is Lotli a Railroad and Toll
bridge for ordinary travel. Two hundred
thousand dollars will build such abridge;
we must remember that if we grade the
roadbed the Construction Bonds of the
Company will then command a ready
market, so that with a heavy local sub
scription, and an issue of a reasonable
amount of such Bonds we can build this
bridge without difficulty. The bed of the
river is very Hrrn. building stone art
cheap and good, and all the lumber re
quired can be floated to the site of the
bridge. Once across the river we are in
immediate connection with the sys
tem of Railroads thut radiate from the
anthracite coal fields, and on the highway
to Philadelphia' and New York. But it
may be urged that the people of Sun
bury and Selinsgrove and their vicinity
will not subscribe largely to the stock of
this Company. Such a suggestion is a very
poor compliment to the intelligence, en
ergy and wealth of the people of that dis
trict. They certainly understand their best
interests aud feel them to be identified
with the building of this Railroad ; but if
most unfortunately they should notaidus,
we must enlist friends elsewhere by build
ing our Road up the Susquehanna to the
Northumberland bridge, the abutments
and piers of which are admirable and de
signed for a double track bridge. A new
superstructure is all we will require to
carry us into Northumberland and con
nect us direct with the Lackawana and
But will this railroad be u paying in
vestment ? We have seen that the line is
very fine ami its construction must, with
proper management, be very cheap.
Artd this introduces the question of the ;
cost of working the road ; although it is a i
premature inquiry, yet it is well to meet ;
every objection which is hoYiestly made, j
A railroad with light grade, and easy cur- j
vature, and with cheap ties and ballast, ;
can always be cheaply worked. The wear ;
and tear of machinery and rails is light, !
and the repair of the road bed is cheap.— j
Where grades are heavy, curves sharp,
timber and ballast dear, the working of a
railroad is very expensive, the strain on ;
the machinery is very great, the s'~oke of j
the wheels is severe both on the wheels j
themselves and on the rails, and inces
sant repairs to the road bed are necessary, j
Bitt .even such railroads pay when well
managed ; how much more then when so j
cheaply worked as will he the M. C. R. R.
Cheap coat, is an absolute necessity j
for this region, both for domestic use and
for manufactories. We pay now $(1.50 per
ton of 2000 lbs. for coal for domestic use j
and $5.00 for furnace use. Reduce these
respectively to $5.00 and $4.00, and how
powerfully'will the consumption be stim
ulated. All our coat trill reach us by the
Middle Creek Railroad; sixty mites of
transportation will thus be sewed; in one
year after its completion the price of coal
will be reduced twenty-five per cent.; the
traffic in coal alone will yield a good rev
enue to the Road. The Bmad Top Rail
road transports very little else except coal
and that of but one variety , and in one di
rection, yet its bonds are above par. We
must remember that the Middle Creek
Railroad will tap the Pennsylvania Cen
tral at Lewistown, and will carry Broad
Top coal eastward, and will tap the Coal
Railroads at Sunbury and Nortliumber- t
land, and carry anthracite <*oals westward.
i With, .UUts jUUuMt opal fields iu the world
j near one terminus of this road, and with
, the largest iron-ore held in Pennsylvania
near to the other termimis it is manifest
that the traffic in these minerals and in
manufactured iron wiR be very heavy.—
Look, too. at the enormous price pf lum
ber in this place; how soon \vjlf thisprice
give way when cheap transportation en
courages competition? The lumber deal
crs on the Husquehanna will fill this re
' giou with the choicest lumber. A r o mo
j nopoly of coat or lumber can exist when
the road Is opened. Look at the eost of
1 tanning hark in Lewistown, and the eost
| of hauling hides fifteen or twenty miles to
I country tanners and returning the leather
|to market. Look at the "cost of hauling
grain. Hour, ]Hrk, beef, ke., &c., to Lew
istown, Middleburg and Selinsgrov£, :md
fish, plaster, ke., back into the country.
W hat a market will la- opened for all our
agricultural products in the coal produ
cing region ; a cash market eqitetl to that
of Xca> York or Phitaeb fphfrt. Steam
saw mills and.steam tanneries will spring
up along the line of this road, lor timber
and bark are abundant and excellent.—
Railroads are types of progress and civili
zation ; their effect on the la-It of country
tributary to them is magical; life and en
ergy are infused into every pursuit; new
enterprises start up with astonishing ra
pidity ; we know not what a country is
capable of until a railroad traverses it.
The region pierced by the Middle Creek
Railroad will feel the effect of these facts;
it will stimulate every branch of business,
except hauling bv wagons ami this it will
destroy, to the regret of no one. This
Railroad will he the connecting and ne
cessary link between the Eastern and
Western systems of railroads in our State,
and it will throw a powerful traffic on
both and it is absolutely imposiblc that it
can injure either.
In my next paper I will ask the atten
tion of your readers; to the influence of the
M. C. R. R. on the manufacture of iron
in Central Pennsylvania.
