"The area of the roost P. four square
miles, and to one who never saw a sight
of the kind it is truly amazing. From one
hour of sun until night the air:is darken

flying from all directions (south of the riv

of rushing wings as the trackless armies,
marshaled in the "viewless wind," come
sweeping to their bivouac. But the even
ing sight is not to be compared to that of
the morning when the pigeons are leaving

the morning sun paint them with rain

woods like the sulphurous clouds above the

. THEODORE TILTON ON DR. NEVIN.-
Theodore Tilton, the editor of the "G 01...
den Age," it seems, has become deeply in
terrest2d in the Rev. Dr. J. W. Nevin.—
.At least, he has deemed it a matter of
suficieut importance, to enter into
lengthy review of Dr. Nevin's theology,
under the caption of '"rhe Lancaster
Theory of Christianity." The review ap
pears in his paper of tne 24th inst.
In tire body of the article, he speaks as
follows, it:lf Dr. Nevin:
"If his denomination were larger, his
fame would he greater.' He is the intel
lectual peer of such giants as prof. Parke
of Andover, 1)r. }lodge of Princeton,
and ex-President Finney of Oberlin.—
Moreover, his theology, though of the
orthodox and evangelical school, is a far
sunnier type than the severe, thunderous
and punitive systems with which his three
gala contemporaries continue to keep
God in perpetual anger with mankind.-
1)r, Nevins creed is the Heidelberg Cate
chism—which is Calvinism with its mid
winter icicles set driping and melting in
an April sun. Be L the revered head of

F I LM—FORTUNATE ESCAIT.:".-COLIr eit
zens were aroused from theirelambess oa
Friday morning last .abont 2 o'clock, by
be cry of fire. Given as it, was,at the dead
lour of night, it neemarily occasioned
ore than ordinary alarm and excitement
nail its character and whereabouts be
ame known. The store room of Mr. E.
den. which is in. the dwelling house of
i r. John W. Coon and next door to the
Waynesboro' Hotel, had, &temporary
.uilding adjoining it in the rear, which
was first discovered to be on fire by wee
Mr. Coon's daughters who gave the alarm,
ut befo're many citizens reached the scene
•f the fire a twenty-five pound, keg ofpow ,
der exploded, completely 'demolishing the
uilding. The fire and powder was thus
orced through the store room, knocking
out all the window lights in front, shat--
-I e --wfs-17
damaging the stock of goods,some of which
were found burning when the room was
first entered., A tin box. containing $44
belonging to the. Way_riesbnrding
AssociatiOn was found missing. eoxne are ,
of the opinion that the fire was the result
of accident and that the money was taken
after the alarm was given and the front
enterance to the store opened to thetrowd.
Others think it was robbed by burglars,
who fired the building on making their
exit therefrom. In the excitement Mr,
Coonhad the misfortune to lose about
$lOO. It svipears the coat containing his
•• • :ther-goo-the-exciteneen
subsided the pocket book wa.s found, but
currency, -which the thief doubtless over
looked. Mr. C:s household effects were
also much damaged.
Addisort streets, a well-known colored
- man; - who - .was among the first at the burn
lug building after the alarm, was near by
when the explosion took place. He was
knocked down and with some difficulty
removed from beneath the burning timber,
having received several serious burns and
bruises• He was able however to be re
moved and in the morning left for Carlisle
where his wife fifes.' "
The timely discovery of the fire was a
fortunate circumstance, otherwise the. prin
cipal part of our town would doubtless
have been laid in ashes., With an insuf
ficient fire apparatus and general scarcity
of water in both wells and cisterns we
would have been without the menus with
which to arrest its progress. It is but an
other warning, which it would be well for
our citizens, and those in authority espec
ally, to heed.
Mr. Elden's loss is estimated at from
$5OO to $6OO, upon which we understand
Le is fully insured, having a policy upon
his stock in the Waynesboro' Mutual Fire
Insurance Company for $2,000 and one
for $500,00 in the York Company. Mr.
Coon's losi will reach several hundred dol•
lars upon which there is no insurance.
TEE RAILROAD.—We are glad to learn
that as soon as the weather moderates suf
ficiently, perhaps in the course of a day
or two, the work of running the different
lines, by one of which it is proposed to
connect our town with the Western Mary
land Railroad, will be commenced. This
done and a favorable response on the part
of Baltimore city, the next step will be to
secure the required amount of stock sub
scriptions. Whatever this amount may
be we doubt not it will be promptly made
up. The facts in the case prove that this
community loses annually about ono hun
dred thousand dollars for want of railroad
facilities, an argument in itself sufficient
ly potent, we 'think, to awaken, without
further comment, the most indifferent to
a sense of their duty and obligations 'in
this pa.iticular. It should not be necessa
ry to importune townsmen or countrymen
upon this point. All must see and feel
the importance of securing such facilities
at the earliest possible period. Nor should
there be any squirming about 'pet routes.'
But one line—the cheapest and best—can
be adopted. With thisall should be sat
isfied. Any other course would be regard
ed as supremely selfish. We trust there
fore that those who 'have been entrusted
with the managment of so important a
project will lose no time in bringing the
facts of the case before the Baltimoreans.
If legislation should be neecsuary there is
no time to be lost, as the legislature ofthat
State will adjourn for two years on the
first of April.
Mr. McClean, President of the Western
Maryland Railroad, met several of our
Committee at Monterey yesterday.
Dor Geary states in his annual message
that there are.at least 75.000 children in
Pennsylvania who do not attend cehool,
and reccommends a more thorough, com
prehensive, and universal educational sys
tem. The impolicy of a neglect of this
wise provision is apparent from the fact
that an exceedingly small per tentage of
the inmates of prisons and poor-houses
have had even the rudiments of ordinary
education or moral instruction.

PresidentMy Dear Sir:—Owing to the im
pairment of my health I was compelled, six
years ago, reluctantly to relinquish the du
ties of Local Agent of the Company in Phil
adelphia, which I had held since the year
1858, and since then I have devoted myself
only to the supervision of the General A-
Pon c;Y for_the-Statea-of-P-ennsylvania - tuad -

so far from being wholly restored that I
cannot, without suffering (especially during
the summer mun_ths),hear_the_conAnement
necessarily incident to the office duties of
the General Agency. I therefore respect
fully tender my resignation as General A
gent for the above-named States, to take ef

audited and found correct and my successor
"It is impossible for me to contemplate
the retirement from an office I have so
long held without feelings of painful regret
at the severance of the connection which
has existed for so many years, during
which I have experienced nothing but re-

"I am, dear sir,
Very respectfully yours,
"F. It. STARR,
Whereupon, on motion of Judge Davies,
seconded by Mr. Sproulls, the following re
solution was unanimously adopted :
"Resolved, That the Trustees have heard
with sincere regret of the resignation of Mr.
F. Ratchford Starr, the Senior General A
gent of this Company, and take this means,
of expressing their sympathy with him for
-the-cause which renders his withdrawal
crom tne service of this Company necessary.
His long connection with it, and his valua

prosperity of the Company, have secured
for him the respect and esteem of the offi
cers and Trustees of the Company, and, in
retireing from active participation in its af

his future prosperity and happiness."
It gives me pleasure to inform you offi

the foregoing resolution, you were appoint

States of Pennsylvania and Delaware, vice
F. R. Starr, retigned.
It seems to be no less an act of justice to
M. Starr than it is one of proper courtesy
to yourself, that suitable publicity within
your district should be given to the fore
going proceedings, and you eke therefore,
authorized to publish the same.
In thus extending the hand of welcome
on one side and the grasp of official fare
well on the other, I take occasion to ex
press my own hearty concurrence with the
sentiments above expressed and my approv
