Shall we have a Railroad.
It is proposed to' extend the South IVloun
tain Iron Company's Rail Road from the
Pine Grove Iron Works to Waynesboro.—
This is a move in the right direction.—
It will meet a want that has long been
sensibly felt in this community, and that
will be more deeply felt over3r
tonnage of the townships of Washington
and Quincy includinc , the borough of
Waynesboro' is estimated at one hundred
thousand tons per annum, on which two
dollars per ton is paid to and ' from the
nearest railroad depot, - So that we pay ev
ery year two hundred thousand dollars in
order to enter into competition with the
more favored localities upon the lines of
By this proposed scheme of the -South
Mountain Iron Co., Rail Road we.have at
list an opportunity offered of getting rid
of this heavy burden and serious draw
back. We can be put in direct connec
tion- with the great commercial • centres, .
and that too in a very short time, and up
on as generous terms as were ever offered
to any community. • .
This Rail Road, as is well known, con
nects with the Cumberland - Valley at Car
lisle, and through that, with all the great
railroad that centre at Harrisbuurg. By
it, this section is opened to the New York,
Philadelphia and Baltimbre markets.—
A competent engineer willl oyil
week survey the route. The w k will be
let and commenced first so soo as the
Company receives the assurance that one
hundred and fifty thousand dollars of the
Bonds of the Company, secured by a mort
gage on the 'extended road and bearing
seven per cent interest payable semiannu
ally from the date of payment of the mon
ey, will be taken by the people residing a
long the line from Waynesboro tcr - Mnt
It is confidently asserted, that the road
can be built from Pine Grove to Waynes
. born' - within one year. So that the whole
subscription asked by the Compacy for
first mortgage bonds bearing seven per
cent, interest from the time of each pay
ment, and which are thus well secured, is
actually fift y thousand dollars less than the
sum paid every year for hauling to and
from the railroad
The names of the-Directors of the .South
Mountain Iron Co., who through their
President offer to build, equip and work
the road, area guaranty that they will
fully and faithfully perform all that they
promise ; the Directors are Messrs. J. C.
Fuller, Jay Cooke, Thos. W. Scott, 'S.
Dawson Coleman and others equally able
and trustworthy, Our readers need not
be told, that what such men undertake
they are abundantly able to carry through,
and that their promises can be safely re
lied upon. Let there but be confidence
and hearty cooperation with the Company
on the part of the inhabitants of the town
ships and boroughs through which the
route is to pass, and this important enter
prise will soon be successfully completed.
It is confidently expected that a satis
factory arrangement till be made with
the Mt. Alto Company to bring the road
to their place, and the extension of the
road therefore from that point to Waynes
boro' rests with the people of this region.
The Company will.be ready to enter en
ergetically upon the work of constructing
. Abe road so soon as the 'Nate is surveyed
; and pronounced practicable by -their En
gineer. But, as preliminary to the under
'taking, they await from the people of this
section the assurance, that the bonds of
! the road to the amount stated above will
,be taken by them. .

gret to say, what may • prove a formida
ble Obstacle, so far at least as 014 r section
is concerned. The South Mountain Iron
Company proposes building a Branch
Road from Pine Grove, in Cumberland
county. to thisplace. The proposition
has been favorably received by some of
our citizens and public .sentiment is al
ready divided between the , two proposi
tion's, "and - as we'are not able to secure two
roads the same direction at one time,
the danger is that we may fait in getting

000 t per cent bonds
between these two pipints. ,The advan,
tages which the Miramar road would "a,
ford over those of a branch road should
be apparent to everybedY,
The principle points made by the oppm
nents of the Miramar, as far as I am m,
formed, are:these _
1. The Miramar Company are not able
to build their road to Waynesboro' even
with our assistance,'
2. 'lf they do it )Nill only-heat—excel,
sive nominal cost dby a large issue of
3. That compuny proposes to you to
subscribe to their stock . while they otter
you guaranteed bonds, with a certain
I propose, here, to reply briefly to these
points,. and shall hereafter prove to your '
satisfaction what I nOw,state—
The_first_Point is frivolous,_since_Avn
have every personal guarantee that if we
subscribe a certain sum of money the road
shill be built,lf anybody doubts the se
curity, he is at: liberty to satisfy himself
on that point.
2. The company is not a combination
of capitalists, solicitous rather for their
own gain than the good of .the people,—
It is simply, at present, composed of eight
hundred citizens - of Cumberlanit'county, -
together to build it. When built they
will own and control it, and its funds will
be spent in their midst and not transferred,
to Philadelphia. -
If the people of 'Franklin 'desire an ex
tension of the same road through this coun
ty and subscribe in like proportion, the
800 will be swelled to 1200. These and
these only will compose the company and
through directors chosen by themselves
will manage its affairs. These directors,
are, at present, all citizens of Cumberland
county, except one, McLellan. They are
men of property, of good repute, and to
be trusted, if anybody can, with the in
terests of their constituents. Provision
has been made for a proper representation,
in the Board, of the stock to be subscribed
by Os county. .
It' is the intention of the company to
build the road as cheaply as possible, and
to make no further issue of bonds than
shall be sufficient for the purpose. Their
engineer has estimated that, through Cum
berland county, the road can be built for
$25,000 per mile and they do not,propose
to pay more than that sum. The survey
through this county shows a somewhat
more expensive line, but can, the engineer
thinks, be modified so as not to exceed in
cost that through Cumberland; . Now this
is less by $lO,OOO per mile than the gen
eral average of cost of roads in the-State,
and in the Eastern States, generally, in
cluding those built in cheap..times. At
that. cost or twice that cost the road will
pay handsomely as , anybody.can demon
strate who knows anything of the husineis
present and prospective of this valley. It
is difficult to see therefore Where theq"swin
dle" comes in.
3. If our people prefer bonds to stock,'
they can have them, though it would be
better for, them as well as for the egmpa
py to take stock.
First, because that company is sound
est and best able to meet its engagements
(especially in the first ydar or two of its
existence) which has 'a relatively large
proportion of stock to bonds.
• 'Second, because in 11 few years if not
immediately the stock will pay better div
idends than bonds, and consequently rise
above its par value.
Third, because the stockholders have a
voice in the Affairs of the company, while
the bondholders do .not. In the former
case you have_art_interest in the prdperty
and can control its affairs for the benefit
of the community, in the latter you have
no voice and are powerless to help your
selves if it oppresses you.
In common with other citizens I am
anxious that we should have the long
sought for benefits of railroad communi
.with the business world without.
In this instance,, without concentration
and unity of action another failure is in
evitable. A CITIZEN.
DEA= OF AN OLD 31.,ty . .—1n 1814.
when Pittsburg was but a village, an old
man named Jacob •Fgurnais, then aged
about seventy years, came there from Can:
ada, and after a brief sojourn, he .procee
ded to New Orleans in a keel-boat. That
old man died last Saturday in Kansas Ci
ty, at the age of one hundred and thirty
tour years: Fournias was probably the
oldest man living. He was • a Canadian
Frenchman by berth, but for half a centu
ry was a. hunter and• a trapper in the
French voyageurs, as they were called.—
He was never sick, and only a few min
utes before-he died was walking about the
room. He said to his family in the morn
ing that lie would "Never see the sun go
down again," and just before sunset the
machine stopped, and the old man was
dead. His age was entered on the cen
sus roll last year as 134 years, which is as
near as, from the best evidence, it could

NARROW ESCAPE.—On Wednesday night
of last week an altercation'took place be•
tween two young men in . this place, Geo.

the melee the former discharged seven.
shots from a revolver, three - of }which took
affect, two in the face and one in the side.

not be dangerous. This was certainly a
most miraculous escape from instant death
.the part of Pilkington. No arrests
have thus fax been made.
SCHOOL BUILDING.—Mr. ELIAS ROTH
of New Oxford, Adams, county,' Pa. has
been awarded the contract for building
the new School House in this place, for
the surd of $13.479.00. The building is
to be - put-under roof this fall and comple
ted by,the first ofJune next. The site se
lected for the purpose is the Western
School House lot.
As • there seems to be great dissatis
faction in reference to the selection of the
old ground as a site for the new building,
we take the liberty of calling the attention
of our Board of Directors to a lot of ground
at South end of Church street owned by
John Philips, Fsq., ;which we regard as a
more central and very desirable location.
We further learn that the lot can be had
on favorable terms. '
