To the Stockholders of the Miramar Iron
and Railroad Company: = _ •
The company was duly organized, June
20, 1870, and the followingiphrsoits elect
cd directors for the ensuing year: Daniel
V. Ahl, John Evans, Asbury erhxnd;
John, Moore, W. H. Lcingsdo , George
Clever, Alex.l7lldericood. Salmi+ tt.Bai
ley and James Bosler.
Daniel V. Ahl was elected, president.;
Asbury Derland, secretary; William Gra
cey, treasurer; and William H.: Miner, so-.
lieitor. On the ist .'of May; 1871, Hon.
Wm. McLellan was:aeSed_directorviee
S. N.*Bailey, resigned.
. _
It was proposed to bun,,,n re.A.
a point at or near Shippensburg, along the
north' Vase of = the :South. tnountidn; to a
-pointan•the,Ouriberland,Vidley railroad,
near. the Susquehanna, river.
Captain Joseph Mifflin,. of • Columbia,
was appointed Chief Engineer, and in
structed to,survey -the proposed route.—
This - work was duly performed, and the
'report 'of the:engineer is herewith submit
'The line, as surveyed, was commenced
ut Shippensburg, and extended to the
Susquehanna river, at Bridgeport, a dis
'ranee of thirty-eight miles, The line aci-
Iteres closely to the Yellow greeehes creek..
'With a view of accommodating, if-possi
ble, the citizens of Dillsburg, Pa., a line,
leaving the creek line" near the mouth of
the'Dogwood run, was surveyed up that
stream, to Pillsburg, ;and, .returning by
way of Stony run, rejoined the main line
.again near the rriouth. This - line was
`found to be three and seven-eigths miles
longer than the direct, line between the
same points, and involved considerable
heavy work. It has not, therefore, been
deemed advisable to adopt it for the main
line. 4. proposition was, however, made
to the Citizens of Dillsburg, to build a
_branch to that place, diverging from the
main line near the mouth of Dogwood run,
to be constructed simultaneimsly with 'the
main line. This proposition bas been re
jected. It is hoped. however,, that the
'Dillsburg people will still-find it to their
interest to unite with the company in con
structing a branch to that place, to be ex
tended, sufficient encouragemint is giv
en, to .'etersburg, Pa.
I ediately after the organization of
the company, the work of soliciting sub
scriptions along the line was , commenced,
'and has' been continued to the present
time. The amount estimated to be neces
sary to prepare the road for the super
structure, has been apportioned among
the' Various townships; and nearly all hive
filled up their quotas, All' would have
been filled ere this, but for the fact that
the eastern terminus had not, until lately,
been definitely determined;
The right of way for the entire line has
been pledged by the various townships,
and has.already been granted gratuitous
ly for two-thirds of the distance.
Proposabi for construction were invited,
by public advertisement, in April; last,
and several bidi were received, but no a
ward has been made as yet, on account of
delaysgrowirig Out ofthe Dillshurg negotia
tions, and others, making it uncertain
where to fix the eastern terminus. Nat
ters have now taken such shape that we
expect to be able to put the whole work
under contract in a short time. _ _
Negotiations are pending with other
and powerful companies; to be benefitted
by our road, in relation` to endorsement,
.or negotiation of the bonds of the compa
ny required for superstructure and equip
ment, and, such assurances received 'as
leave no doubt that the generally difficult
problem of placing the bonds of a new
road will be solved very advantageously
to our company.
While oar surveys have, for the pres
ent, extended to Shippensburg, it has been
the intention of the company, as soon as
posiible, to extend its line southward, a
long the mountain, by way of Fayette
ville, Funkatown, Quincy, Waynesboro',
Pa., artd,Boonsboro', Md.„ with an ulti-
Mate terminus at the Potomac river, there
connecting with a road now under con
strttction up the Shenandoah valley. With
in a few weeks propositions for such an
extension, as far as • Waynesboro', have
been made by many citizens along the
proposed line, 4nd the townships to be
benefited have undertaken, on certain
cobditions, to raise the necessary stock
subscriptions. - The preliminaries are now
under discussion, and it is expected that
steps for opening such subscriptions will
be taken in a few days. It is deemed un=
necessary, at this time; to do more than a-
Jude to the advantage to the company, as
well as to the region in question, of such
an extension. The immense deposits of
the finest iron ore, the products of several
prosperous furnaces, now in operation, and
many more that will hereafter be establish

ent and prospective, of the enterprising
town of Waynesboro', sof the innumerable '
mills on the Antietam, and of a farming
region that has no superior in this or any
other country. will. aggregate a business,

and largely increase the profits of the
whole line.
it is Pryinetimes asked, "will another
railroad in the valley pay ?"
• . Perhaps it might not, if it depended a
lone upon the agricultural products of the
valley ; if there was no new business. to be
created by another road, situated as this
will be. * The prime object of our efforts
has been, to construct a road that should
develop a business, now hying dormant for
want of accessibility, and especially to de
velop and bring to , market the valuable
and inexhaustible ores of the South moun.
rain and the contiguous valley.
We think the transportation of ores, of
iron and of the articles
,neem.ary in its
production, would alone afford a 'paying
business. We are sure it will, when sup
plemented by the agricultural, and man
"ufaetved products of a region unsurpass
ed-for hrtility, and cultivated to thehigh
. est degree, by a derive, , intelligent, enter
prising and wealthy population.
The - Tx country through which 'our
road is. proposed to run is now not reached,
• by, or imperfectly supplied with railroad
facilities. Lime, lumber, rough timber,
flour, grains ana farm products of all kinchj,
now transported, if at all, long distances
in wagons, must find an outlet to market

By connecting at the Susquehannariver
with the Northern Central; and at Harris
burg, with the Penpsylvania Central and
Philadelphia and Reading railroads, 'we
are afforded an outlet to the best markets

same means we reach the anthracite coal
fields and the white pine lumber region.—
When our road shall have been completed
to the Potomac, we shall have connections
also with the Western Maryland and Bal

Virginia to the far south, and thus adddi
tional outlets and 'valuable markets for

ourselves upon the success that has thus

responded promptly - and liberally. There

by Wm. McLellan, Esq., of Chambers

; Capt . . triffiiii, Engineer, stated that theY
had finished the Survey of a route from

feasible and could be :constructed at a
Moderate cost. The meeting was well at,

manifested. 1 The R. 4, - Committee the
same evening held a meeting at the office
of J. Douglas, Ear.; at Which D. V. AM;
President of the Company,, Col. Owens
and Capt. Mifflin were present.- It. was
'decided- to open books for stock;

menced not later than pext-week. '
' The - fact that our people ore

should 'arouse the eomminity as one man'
tOnetive measures -fer the success of this'
great railroad, project.' There neireewas
a more propitious time for preen* action
on our part. Just think of it. To secure
a line of railroad : extending from the Sus
quehanna to the Potomac and giving us
connection with'the Railroad, the
people of our town, and, township—`the
most populous and wealthy, section of
-Pianklin county—are asked to subscribe
-to the Capital Stock of the Miramar Corn;
.pony the slim of sixty tho Wand
an amount, comparatively speaking, insig
nificant. It would be hard'to estimate the
benefits of such a road, and it would 'be
useless, foi us to attempt a recapitulation
of the multiplicity of advantages which
would thus be afforded all classeS. How
it would enhance the value of real estate,
stimulate 'every branch of industry—open
up our natural iesources—resources of un
told wealth—bringing to ouideors a tear
ket for the transportation of all ,manner
of products and manufactures.. These and
other advantages must' be": apparent to
'the mind's of all,.tethoseeven of-the most
limited, reasoning powers ; and we con
fess a degree of dividence in appealing to
citizen's in behalf Of such an enterprise
from the fact or fear that they' might- re 7
Ceive it as an insult to". their intelligence
and'better judgmeat.
The question so often propounded—"will
the stock pay," should net bother the brain
of oiy one. The indirect benefits oz
it : would more than compensate for ev
ery dollar thus invested. The agricultu
ral-and ore regions through which the road
Would . run. should satisfy the niost skepti
cal as' to the'query—"willthe stock pay."
At : the'meeting in thi‘afternbon a let
ter 'front Gov:Geary to D. V. AM was
read, expressing an, earnest: desire for the
'success a the enterprise and his., regrets
'that' Other engagements preventi4 the pos
sibility of his complying with the polite in
vitation to address the citizens of Waynes
boro' and vicinity upon the question of
the early co'mplefion of the -road.
R. R. StIRVEY.—Our citizens were
pleased on last Friday to welcome the ar
rival of the Corps of R. R. Engineers who
are surveying, the route for the Miramar
Railroad. Having surveyed a route from
Bridgeport to a point near Shippensburg,
Capt. Mifflin began the Survey from that
place running through. Fay and
Funkstown. From 'Funkstown they ran
through the fertile meadows lying between
that place and Quincy,• which would give
a road at so. easy grade as almost aston
ished:the Engineers. The people along that.
route are so much ipterestecl and public
spirited that they are willing to give their
land without .asking damages. From
Snow-Hill-the route to 'Waynesboro' runs
through the lands of= Jacob .Price, John
Price, Summers'arid John Funk, coming
out the'Greencastle turnpike 'road a.
Short distance from•the borough• limits:—
This route would be of very eas) . grade all
the way from Funkstewn. Another ex
perimental route was run on last Saturday'
from the Nunneay through lands of-Messrs
cob Middour, Resh,Rinelmit and others
coming ont.- the turnpike a short:. dis
tance East of the toll gate Capt. Clay
ton's. This route it is thought- by many
will be one chosen for the road. The
Engineers however promise to make an
other experimentfil survey between Quin
cy, and•Waynesboro'. - • ' •
At the ,Railroad meeting in this place
on Saturday there was a large delegation
of .the most substantial citizens of Boom
boro' present to see what could be done to
wards getting the Miramar dawn through
that place'to the Potomac. -President Atm
concluded to continue the survey to Boons

still at work. • . •
