A public meeting was held at the Odd
Fellows' Hall in the evening. We was
not present but learn that all possible in
formation in reference to' the amount of
freighting, &c. which would likely be con
veyed by rail from this region was given
the Committee. Two routes were pro
posed, one to make the connection on the
Summit, near Monterey, the other in the
direction of Smithburg. The President
of the Corn and Flour Exchange, Mr.
Young, advised that the proposed routes
be run and said that when they were fur
timated cost of construction Baltimore
would respond favorably. According to
a' correspondent of the American, who ac
companied the Committee, the gentleman
were favorably impressed with the impor
ance of connecting this section with the
We - subjoin the—elos'
paragraphs of the correspondence, of which
we would be pleased to give a more ex
tended synopsis did onr space permit :
Mr. John Philips, Cashier of the First
National Bank of Waynesboro', read a
statement showing the production of tho
section of country which the proposed road
would benefit, and the amount of freight
that might be expected. Tnere are fourteen
mills in the vicinity, of the town that ship
yearly 110.000 barrels of flour; 1,000 fat
cattle are annually sold, 2,000 fat hogs,
and 400 holies ;1,000 tons of hay ; many
bushels of oats, rye, corn, &c : also 3,000
tons of machinery. Waynesboro' has five
stores whose annual sales of general mer
chandise amount to $llO,OOO ; seven other
stores *hose aggregate annual sales 'are
over $140,000; four stores in the immedi
ate vicinity, sell $35,000 worth of goods ;
one patent medicine factory sells proprie
tary medicine to the amount of $30,000;
one tannery sells $30,000; three carriage
shops sell $25,000; and the annual sales
of three machine shops amount to $250,-
000. These establishments use 3,000,000
feet of lumber, which costs $75,000.
The committee were much impressed
with• Mr. Philips' exhibit of the produc
tion and consumption of this rich, indus
trious and prosperous community. On
Friday morning they visited the - fine ma
chiuo shops of the Geiser .Manufacturing
Company and Messrs. Trick & Bowman.
Of this latter establishment more partic
ular mention will be made hereafter. The
same procession of carriages that brought
the party down the mountain returned
them to the summit, and at 2 P. M., they
left for home. The committee is unani
mous in the opinion that immediate ac
tion should be taken, and that Baltimore
should forthwith contribute from $75,000
to $lOO,OOO to secure the building of the
branch. The trade of Waynesboro' is too
rich a prize to be lost by &day. A meet
ing will be held at the Porn and Flour
Exchange on Tuesday next, at which some
definite plan of action will be decided on.
To the above items there are other pro
ducts to add, such as grain, produce, hay,
marketing, &c. &c. It I estimated that
from 40,000 to 50,000 tens of freighting
would be supplied at this point annually.
We are not advised, but presume our
Committee will at once make the neces
sary arrangements to determine the adop
tion of a line by survey, which will of
course be the shortestand most practicable.
That this should be the decision is but
reasonable ; hence there should be no
room foi division or wrangling as to the
merits of the proposed routes. Should
Baltimore conclude to give the project the
aid expected, in order to success their
must be no division, but unity of purpose
awl action among our own citizens. If,
through this assistance, au outlet can be
secured in that direction, it will be the
duty of all to contribute liberally and
cheerfully to obtain it. This oneo secur
ed the Harrisburg & Potomac Road, so
vastlY important to our beat interest. will
speedily follow, affording an inlet for our
coal, lumber, iron, gke. &e. A most re-'
liable citizen remarked in our hearing
yesterday that as soon as sufficient stock
subscriptions ware obtained to secure con
nection with the W. M. R. 8., he would
subscribe as much, one thousand dollars
for the other, and for which he believed
subscriptions would be more easily obtain
ed. We trust this view of the matter
may prove correct and that the lime may
not be very far distant when we shall
have railroad communication with both
Baltimore and Harrisburg.
T). V. ,Slll. Esc.. President of the Her
rieburg aed Potomac Railroad, J ohn
Moore, Esq.,- of Cumberland Co., and
Nusam,' Esq.- of 'Carlisle, were

to the progress of the work on the line of

tance of harmony and perseverance to the
accomplishment of so .desirable an , end.
MT. VERNON LITERARY SOCIETY.
This Society 'held ittfirst session in Way
nesboro' on the evening of the 22d inst. It
is deemed expedient to make few state
ments to those who may feel interested.
The Society was organized at the Mt.
Vernon school-house near this place in Oc
tober, 1871. A number of young men from
town and the Mt. Vernon community, o
riginated the idea of a Society for mutual
benefit, in literary research and mental
exercise on e mpo n su sjec • o u
cation and business. The object was to
organize a society similar to the Literary
Societies in our colleges and Normal schools
by which we would secure at home the
same advantages of mutual improvement.
The Constitution and By-laws of the So
ciety were compiled from the Constitution
and By-laws of our State Normal School
at Millersville, Pa. The Society has its
Rules of order and Regulations which
place every member under ample ,moral
and social restrictions. The Society has
proved to be a success, and we have evi
dence to convince us that much discipline
and benefit have been derived.
We wish it distinctly understood that
this Society is not an ordinary, old-time
"Debating Society." The Society is gov
erned by a Cabinet consisting of President,
Vice President, Recording and correspond
ing Secretaries, and Treasurer, who are
regularly elected for a. term of four weeks.
A faithful discharge - of - the dutiec-Thelong
ing to these offices qualify young men for
the same duties in business life. In the
order of Exercises are, Miscellaneous bus
iness, consisting of Reports of Committees
&c., Unfinished business, Oration, Essays,
_Poems, Exer '-es in Reading. Discussion
af - iaerite of important questions, in which
the speakers may investigate both sides of
the subject. Speakers are not allowed to
use unbecoming language or deceptive ar
gument. We aim at a higher standpoint
than the mere idea of."victory." , Our mot
to is "Educate the mind,"and we are grat
ified to say our' 'endeavors have not been
fruitless. The Society has also a regularly
appointed Critic whose duty it is "to .notice
and report at.the cies° of the session, all
misdemeanors, errors, impropriety, and of
fer suggestions. .
In conclusion, we say, we believe the
Mt. V. L. Society is a moral, useful, well
regulated organization for the educational
benefit of the Young Men of our town and
country, and worthy of encouragment.

COUNTY PRINTING.—The public print
ing of Franklih county cost last year $2,-
486,16, while that of Cumberland county
cost $1,209,00—a difference of $1,278,20.
The printing of Cumberland county is
distributed amongst all its papers, while
that of Franklin county is confined to
those published in Chambersburg. If the
"Ring" should succeed in getting theiLe
gal Advertising act" passed, then papers
away from the county seats will have a
"hard road to travel.", Yet when some
of these papers protest against the cen
tralization 'or the legal printing, some of
the editors of the "big blanket sheets" get
their feathers up, grow red . in the face, and
cry f' "Why these suburban papers
have rio circulation; • no.. influence, and
why should they get what properly be
longs to us?", It is an old saying "the
