I.OOKOFT rOB THE MHOXOTIYF-
For a period of more than twenty
years the citizens of this county, and
notably of the eouthern portion of it,
labored to induce the construction of a
Railroad through its borders. Our
large mineral resources and more
particularly our valuable coal fields
were pointed out and urged upon the
attention of capitalists, and article up
on article amounting to volumes, were
w ritten and published in this journal.
Another corporation stood like a gi
ant in our path, and forycars the
struggle was long and weary, and
apparently hopeless. At last success
crowned the prlouged contest, and
loss than two brief years since the
Pittsburgh and Connellsrillc road be
came an accomplished fact. Many
and great arc the changes wrought
within this period ; development and
prosperity have followed rapidly on
the track of the iron horse, and now
it seems as if there was to be a strug
gle for the mere transportation of that
mineral wealth, the very cxibtance of
which they eo blindly ignored. Pro
jected railroads to reach the coal fields
of Somerset county are as plentiful as
lerric8 in mid-summer, and moun
tains arc to be pierced and chasms to
be bridged, to secure that wealth

We learn that a few days ago, a
corps of engineers appeared in thai
place to make a survey of a projiot-cd
route from the coal fields of Somerset
county and the coal regions of Broad
Ton to Philadelphia. The road is be
ing built by the autboity of an act of
the Legislature of Pennsylvania, in
corporating the "State Line and Juni
ata Railroad Company," approved
April 5, 1870, together with supple
mental enactment of May 18, 1871,
and March C, 1872. The company
intend to construct and equip the
main line of its railroad, extensions
of the main line and branches of the
same, lying along and east of Licking
creek, iu Fulton county, The main
line commencing at a point on the
Maryland line, where the said line
crosses the Licking creek, in the
southwest corner of Franklin count,
and by way of Licking creek valley,
and the extensions of the said main
line eastwardly through the counties
of Huntingdon, Fulton, Franklin
Adams, York, Lancaster, Chester,
Delaware, Montgomery, Philadelphia
and Bucks counties, at a point on the
Delaware river at or nearMorrisville,
in 6aid county, ia length about one
hundred and ninety-eight miles, as
now located bv the compauv. Cum-!
ocnana county is not mentioned in
the route, j et Sbippensburg is marked
in the line upon the map. From that
place the line takes an easterly course
through Pine Grove and thence to
York. It is the purpose of the com
pany to construct a double track, narrow-gauge
(three f-et) railroad from
the bituminous coal fields in Somer
set county, and the seini-bituminous
coal regions known as "Broad Top,"
in Huntingdon, Bedford and Fulton
couuties to Philadelphia. The main
line, with its branches, w ill be about
twa hundred and twenty-five miles in
length. This road wiil reach the
vast fields of coal and iron deposits,!
west of the Tuscarora mountains, by
a shorter and cheaper route than '
now exists. Besides the mineral dep
osits in the localities above mention
ed, the entire country traversed by
this railroad is the richest agricultur
al district and the most densely pop
ulated in the State. The company
expect to build the road on a loan of
$4,000,000, secure!) by first and only
mortgage, at the rate of seven per
cent. jer annum, payable in gold
semi-annually, clear "of State and
United States taxes, on the first days
of April and Octoler.
Then comes our
Cumberland Daily Xews of the 25th
with the following information re
garding a project that has been moot
ed for some time.
A gentleman just from New York
city informed us yesterday that it has
been determined to extend the West
ern Maryland Railroad to the Mey
ers' mills coal fields, instead of to
Cumberland. The route has- not
been definitely determined, but it is
supposed it w ill run almost directly
from HagerstOwn to Meyers' Mills,
departing from the line from Hagers
town to Cumberland at a point some
miles east of our city, probably in the
vicinity of FlintstonC Daniel Drew,
the great capitalist from New York,
w ho is largely interested in the Can
ton Works, of Baltimore, is said to be
pushing the enterprise, and our infor
mant seems to be under the impres
sion that the work w ill be speedily
commenced and vigorously prosecu
ted. Wc arc of courc unable to say how
much foundation there is in the re
port we have noted, but iu view of
several publications of the same pur
port which have lately appeared in
the Hagcrstown Mail it apjtcars as if
there might be something in it. If
so, it wm lc rather unfortunate for
Cumberland. The object in carrying
the road to Meyers' Mills :s twofold
first, to secure a good coal depet ;
second, to avoid the large hills near
Cumberland. Both circumstances
are against us, and if the road is not
originally brought here wc think that
the "branch" to Cumberland vaguely
spoken of will never exist
And here is what the Johnstown
Tribune has to say regarding that
- slow moving, but certain to be ac
complished purpose, of reaching our
coal and iron fields from that noint:
Mr. Wm. X. Allen of Philadelphia,
in charge of a corps of engineers
commenced the survey of the route
for the railroad from Johnstown to
Somerset on the first of last April,
pursuant to resolujion of the Board
of Directors elected by the stockhold
ers, and on the last week in Septem
ber completed the work. They loca
ted the road from Johnstown to
Stoystown, and ran experimental
lines from Stoystown to Somerset and
from Stoystown to Berlin, it has not
yet been decided by the stockholders
which route will be taken from Stoys
town. They found a very practica
ble route with a comparatively light
grade, the maximum being only 49
feet to the mile, while the maximum
on the Pennsylvania Railroad is ui
w ards of 80 foct The distance to
Strrrtown by tha route selected w!
at the old
23V miles. It commences
canal basin and runs on the
the old feeder above the upper end of
trie cemetcry.ana crosses iuu imw -runtlv
to near the tenement house of
Geo. W. Osborne on bis larm ; then
follows the west side of i lie creek to
above E. A. Viekroy's farm, from
which point they have surveyed two
routes to Kring's Mills, one of the
routes to cross to the cast side of the
river, and the other to remain on the
west side and run past the old Bens
creek furnace property to Kring's
Mills, then cross the river and follow
it, passing near Faust's Mills, Davids,
and Hooversville, to Stoystown.
The experimental lines run from
Stoystown to Somerset and from
Stovstown to Berlin. The onlv avail
able line to Somerset is on the line of
the Stony Creek to Mostoller's Mills,
then un Well's Creek past Friedens-
burg, crossing the dividing ridge at,
the Summit, near Eh tuppa. ana
thence down to Somerset, where con
nection is made with the Somerset
and Mineral Point Railroad. The
whole distance from Johnstown to
the main street of Somerset is 36
The line from Stoystown to Berlin
follows the Stony Creek, past Shauks
ville, to the headwaters of the creek,
at Berlin, the whole distance from
Johnstown to Berlin being BS miles.
Near Berlin connections can be made
with the Buffalo Valley Railroad, a
branch from the Connellsville Rail
road. The distance from Somerset to the
main line of the Connellsville Road
is 9 miles, and from Berlin 8 miles.
The distance from where the Berlin
branch connects with the Connells
ville Road, at Garrett, to Pittsburg is
108 miles ; and from where the Som
erset Branch connects with the main
line of the Connellsville Road, at
Mineral Point, is 100 miles.
The route has been a very tedious
one to survey, owing to the unoven
ness of the "country and the great
2-rowtb f laurel "and underbrush.
Frequently as many as four or five
axiuen were employed, and these on
several occasions were able to clear
away the underbrush a distance of
only three-quarters of a mile a day.
But the suveys are now all complet
ed and in the hands of the directors,
and hopes arc entertained that the
building of the road, work on which
will be first done on this end, wiil 1c
commenced in the spring.
That all three of these roads will
be prosecuted to completion, just as is
now contemplated, wc do not antici
pate, but that each of the projects
will be substantially carried out ad
mits of no doubt in our mind. The
demand for fuel and ores is daily aud
hourly on the increase, and the ex-
haustlcss fields of both, in this county
can no longer be overlooked. The
lately discovered South Hampton
mines, the Elklick and Meyers' mills,
the Berlin, the Ursina, the Stoney
Creek and other lesser and partially
unexplored coal fields, and the almost
continuous ore veins throughout the
five hundred and fifty square miles
w ithin the limits of the county, are a
prize well worth struggling for, and
it looks at last as if Somerset county,
was on the high way to the develop
ment and realization of her immense

CLINGING TO POWER.
The leading Democrats and assist
ant Democrats of some of the south
ern states, seeing, perhaps, that they
are upon their last legs, arc endcav-
orin? to make the most of their lease
of power. Thus in Louisiana,- Assist
ant Democrat Warmoth, who, w hile
pretending to be a Republican for the
purpose of using and betraying that
party,' was so thoroughly denounced
by Democrats as a thieving carpet
bagger, has become exceedingly pop
ular with them. He is the Boss
Tweed of Democracy in Louisiana,
where he is at present engaged in run
ning a political counting machine for
the counting out of Republicans re
cently elected, and counting in those
who wear his collar. 1 he courts have
been appealed to for redress, but little
greater fairness is to be expected from
them, according to report, than from
the courts of New York during the
Tammany reign. The election of a
United States Senator for six years, is
the high game these unscrupulous
men arc playing for.
In Alabama, where the Democracy
was palpably defeated, the desperate.
Democratic officials have refused cer
tificates to senators and representa
tives elected to the legislature bv a
fair vote duly certified by the election
officers, and the Democratic secretary
of state, who holds temporary power,
has returned as elected, the defeated
candidates of his defunct party in suf
ficient number to elect a Democratic
United States senator. In Barbour
and Marengo counties, where this
was done, the Republicans had a ma
jority at the last three election, and
it is well known that the colored vote
which turned the scale in favor of the
administration, was better organized
and more thoroughly uuitcd in favor
of the Republican candidates at the
late election, than ever before. But
this fact, together with the actual
count of votes polled, did not restrain
these reckles s Democrats from an at
tempt to set at rought the decision of
the ballot, for the purpose of clinging
a little longer to the power that has
departed from them through the vox
jxtpuli. In Arkansas, the same tac
tics of desperation are employed, and
the object is the same, viz: the elec
tion of an opposition United States
I am informed by parties here from
Memphis, that Jeff Davis is as mad as
a turtle over the result of the recent
election. It is believed by those who
ought to know, that he and Jeff
Thompson have packed away some of
the confederate gold for their special
use. Jeff was always known as a
greedy dog while in high office- here
in Washington. Jeff Thompson,
whose home is in Memphis, man
aged to be suddenly absent just pre
vious to the expose of his attempt to
spread the cholera and incendiarism
in the north during the war, and has
rleen in Europe since that time. It
would be a good idea for congress to
institute an investigation into the dis
position of that confederate gold.

pose the conhrmation of Mr. Fairman
by the Senate. This ia probably a

A series cf letters to Gov. Cooke,
of this District, are now being pub
lished by A. 13. Davis, Esq., of Mary
land, in favor of building a national
jair-line railway from Washington to

cogent reasons for the building of a
road from the natioual capital to this
grand centre of the commonwealth of
Pennsylvania. It certainly does seem
strange that railway facilities should
not be pushed out from the capital in
all directions, and especially due north

tre in the midst of agricultural wealth
of untold value to our people.

committees at the coming session.

so much destruction. There are
houses ruined, houses fallen to the

entirely carried off or hanging loose,

To the Chief Signal Officer of the
Army, Washington, IK C.
General: Iu reply to your tele
graphic dispatch received this morn
ing, directing mo to make a full re
port of the meteoric phenomena at
tending the recent great fire, I would
respectfully say that the wind at this
station during the progress of the fire
varied from north-northwest to north,
with a velocity of from five to nine
miles per hour, weather being clear,
cool and pleasant On approachinsr
the fire on the north or windward side
as close as the heat would allow, the
indraught of air through the burning
streets assumed the character of a
brisk wind, probably sixteen or eigh
teen miles per hour, while the heat
was so intense as to cause sm ike,
steam, Ac., to be carried up in spirals
to a great elevation. On tho south
or lee side induced currents of air
were very strong, probably thirty or
thirty-five miles per hour, carrying
fire bodily to windward.
This state of affairs appears to lo
the reverse of the Chicago fire, where
the strength of tho wind was suffi
cient to overcome the induced strength
and the fire burned to leeward. It
appears as if high winds permitted
the indraught to rise at a considera
ble angle after reaching the fire, leav
ing a large space of highly rarified air
iu its front, inducing stronger cur
rents to flow, which, meeting the in
draught, gave a spiral or whirlwind
form to the ascending current Dur
ing the fire a flock of ducks passed at
a great bight overhead, and the light
reflected from their plumage made
them appear as fire balls passing rap
idly through the air. Many who saw
them called them meteors, and likened
them to balls of fire said to have been
seen in the northwest during the great
fire in that region. As an example
of the great heat diffused, I would
state that during the night I exposed
a thermometer in the observatory to
the full glare of the fire, when it rose
nearly fivo degrees, although placed
upwards of two thousand feet from
the burning distric, to windward of!
it -o other phenomena occurred;
the barometer rose slightly, and the
weather remained unchanged.

Terrible Know Storm In Minnesota.
Chicago, November 21. A spec
ial from St. Paul, Minnesota, says
that gloomy news may bo anticipa
ted from the Minnesota track-layers
on the extension of the Winona and
St. Teters railroad. They were ap
proaching the western State line at
the rate of two miles daily, when the
terrible storm of last Thursday night
enveloped them and cut them off from
all communication with the civilized
world. The working force numbers
over eight hundred men, and so san
guine were their expectations that fa
vorable weather would outlast No
vember that no preparation was
made to avoid the calamity which it
is feared has befallen them. Only a
small supply of provisions was kept
ia store, for although one hundred
miles from the telegraph, construc
tion trains maintained regular commu
nication with Sleepy Eye, the near

gence ofthe storm had reached Wino

heavy and deep were the snow drifts,
and so intense the cold, that up to

ed New Ulm. There two additional
locomotives were attached to the
train and then taking on board ra
tions for thirty days, and one hun
dred and fifty men, besides material
with which to fit up boarding accom
modations in the cars, the train was
again started, and a passage ivay was
forced through drifts eight and ten
feet deep, and even where tho snow
did not exceed one foot in depth, so
hard was it packed that recourse was
had to shovels before advance could
On Sunday the train had penetra
ted twenty-five miles. In the mean
time the storm had raged with a vi
olence unprecedented, and w hen last
heard from, on Tuesday night, the re
lief train was stuck fast in the ever
accumulating snow forty miles west
of Sleepy Eye, and eighty miles short
of the suffering track-layers. Yester
day morning the Telegraph wires

communication was shut off.
The latest reports from Arizona in
the afternoon state that the wind had
increased into a furious gale. For
six days the storm has continued
with unabated fury. The painful im
pression created is that the men at
the end of the track will actually
starve before relief can reach them.
No supplies are known to be accessi

in advance of the Government sur

A Ulff Swindle.
New York, November 21. A
special from Newport,' Rhode Island,
says: The following swindling oper
ation came to light in this city to
night. About six months !tgo a mail
called on Oliver Head, a wealthy
broker of this city, and requested him
Jo purchase $17,000 of Central Pacific
railroad ten per cent, income bonds.
Head told him that he would not
purchase, but that he would sell them
for bim for ono aud one-half percent
The man consented, and Head imme
diately forwarded them to Fisk &
Hatch, New York, for them to sell for
him. In due season Read received a
telegram from Fisk & Hatch stating
that they had -succeeded in disposing
of them, and that they had placed
the proceeds to his credit at a bank in
that city. Thereupon Head iufornied
his man, who by the way had failed
to state his name, that he bad sold
them and paid the man $14,500, after
deducting his commission and that of
Fisk & Hatch. This morning Head
received word from Fisk & Hatch,
stating that the bonds were counter
feit, and they also sent him $f(,000 of
them, requesting him to make good
their loss. At noon he also received
another letter from them with $1,000
more of the bogus bonds. This fraud
was detected at the office of the rail
road company in New York, when
the coupons were presented for pay
ment It is reported on good author
ity that tho swindler was in New
York yesterday, and doubtless will
soon be in tho hands of justice.

FIRE IN JFKSEY CITY.
New York, November 20. About
six o'clock this evening a fire broke
out in Perrin Si Hauce's steam saw
mill on Fourteenth street, near Hen
derson street, Jersey City, destroying
the building and surrounding lumber
yards. Loss $15,000. The flames
extended to Jarvis & Honwood's
tobacco inspection warehouse, bound
ed by Thirteenth and Fourteenth,
Provost and Henderson streets, con
taining about 5,000 hogsheads of
tobacco. Loss on tobacco about $1,
200,000, loss on building about $18,
000 which is insured, principally in
New York companies. The store
house destroyed was a building 400
by 200 feet, one story and attic high,
and filled with tobacco, recently re
ceived over the Erie road, and be
louging to a large number of firms,
who aro supposed to be insured,
though ihis is uncertain. In colse
proximity was an immense six story
building, containing fully five thous
and hogsheads of tobacco, which for
tunately escaped injury, though the
wooden shutters to the windows,
painted to rcpresenteil iron, were
somewhat charred. The newly-erected
shops of the Erie railroad, also
close at hand were not injured,
though for a time in great danger.
The dwellings in the vicinity, which
were a great many, built of wood and
occupied by laborers, were soon emp
tied of their contents but were saved
by the firemen. The loss on tobacco
is variously estimated, though the
most intelligent statment we are able
to procure places the quantity burn
ed at three thousand hogsheads,
which would bring the loss in the
vicinity of $C00,000 to $800,000.
The burned saw mill was insured

A fire broke out in Dow & Bro.'s
plauing-mill at nine o'clock to-night
which is likely to prove nnst disas
trous. The fire has already extend
ed two blocks, and over twenty-five
houses have been burned.
A later dispatch says: The fire
which broke out about uino oVlok to
night in Dow Si Hro.'s planing-mill
on Mechanic street, is now under
complete control and the loss will
not be as great as at first estimated.
A strong northwest wind was blow
ing at the tune, which carried the
sparks a great distance, and at one
time the entire northern portion of
the city was threatened with destruc
tion. The epizootic has disabled all
the horses of the fire department, and
steamrcs which were drawn by the
citizens were considerbly delayed in
reaching the fire. There were nine
teen buildings destroyed, the majority
of which were tenement houses, princi
pally occupied by negroes. The prin
cipal losers were Wm. Bruce, Dow
& Brother, Wm. Brcsh, and John
M. Headley. It is impossible at this
time to give even an approximate es
timate of the loss.

It is claimed that the immigrants
who landed on our shores last year
added upward of $2S5,0O(.O00 to the
national wealth; computing their
value merely as unskilled laborers.
Statistics show, however, that forty
six per cent, of the male immigrants
have been trained to various pursuits, i
half of whom are skilled laborers and ;
workmen. The value of these men to j
the country can hardly be computed. ;

of these operations while there, the!
Queen expressed a desire tosee them.
The Duke escorted her thither and j

the bank inspecting the work it com-!
menced to rain. A fe w yards off one
of the men was sawing some timber!
for the shaft, pud, heedless of the
rain, continued h's work without a
coat. Presently he was surprised to
feel a light touch, and on looking up
perceived the Duke, who laid a costly
rug over his shoulders, at the same
time exclaiming, "The Queen requcs-j

the family into whose possession they
had come, - had been stored ' for
safety" in one of the burned build
ings. Mr. Prescott's physical infirm
ity had made it necessary for him to
cause copies to be taken of an im
mense number and variety of ancient
and authentic documents concerning
Spain and the two Americas, and the
destruction of these as well as of his
own correspondence and literary
memoranda is in its way a public
calamity to the world of letters.
With these also perished some of the
finest portraits ever painted by
