TRADE.—Tho milk trade, along
the line of the Philadelphia and deading
Railroad,. is becoming an important branch
of business': The farmers and dairymen
;Jong the lino send down their milk by the
Pottstown Accommodation Train, which
leaves hero at 10:46 in the morning, and re
ceive their canes front their city . customers
by . the return of the same train in the even
ing, The total quantity of the lacteal fluid
taken to Philadelphia daily by this train is
nearly" 2,600 gallons; Of this, the heaviest
shipment from one_station is front Pottstown
—say about 000 gallons ; the next largest
quantity N front Perkiomen Junction, about
600 gallons, and Limerick Station comes
next, with abottC4oo gallons. The remain
derl, of the supply comes front Sanptoga,
Royerat Ford, and other stations below.
The milk trade along the Schuylkill Val
ley is rapidly increasing, and will soon rival
the trade over the North Pennsylvania
Railroad, - from whence, we believe, the Qua
ker City draws its jirinciptil supply: -Our
farmers find that selling the milk to, the city
'dealers is mitre remunerative than butter
making, and a gregt many of them are
changing their • dairies aceorditigly.—Potes
