table that every important enterprise
must encounter in its beginning not only
the natural difficulties of railroad Wild
ing, but also the delays and vexations
consequent upon the factious opposition
of those who fancy there own interests
injuriously affected. Such opposition is.
equally foolish and futile ; futile, because
no really round and well conceived pro
ject was ever so checked ; and foolish, be
cause it needs but a glance at our brief
railroad history to see that every new

and enriches itself.
The Harrisburg and Potomac Railroad
has encountered such opposion and has
lived it down. Already fifteen miles of
the road have been graded, and the offi ;
cers in charge expect to have their trains
running from Harrisburg to Clevershurg
by the end of the year. An extraordin
ary impetus has been given to the road
this year by the strong demand for iron
ores to meet the increased and increasing
call fur cheap iron ores to feed the fur
naces upon the Susquehanna and Schuyl
kill. A party of gentlemen, who may be
termed the Susquehanna interest, con
sisting of Messrs. Dawson Coleman, W.
Wister, W. Watts, of Marietta, Jones
Wister, Col. H. M'Cormick, Mr. Dull
Superintendent of Lochiel Igo
Mr. Jacob Eby, Mr. Chas. of
Pottsville, and others, recently visited
the line of the road for the special put ,
pose of examining the iron ore show at
the ro ert of the Carlisle Iron Works,_
at Boiling Springs furnace. After a
thorough and exhaustive, and from the
great extent of the ore development an
exhausting,examinatiou L th e party depart

the ores so much needed on the Susque
Close to this large mass of South Moun
tain ore, and immediately on the road
lie the great and almost undeveloped
limestone hematites so needful for min
ing, while the branch roads running into
York and Adams counties touch in a few
miles the muometic ores. • Such a combi-
nation of ores renders certain the estab
lishment of furnaces along the line of the
road ; and already several are projected.
No-caterprize has-been-reeentlr-stur -

interest as in the completion of this road.
With good and cheap ores lying on the
South Mountain, only twenty miles away
there is nothing to prevent the city from
becoming the grand iron centre of the east
But there should be no delay, and it
should be seen to that every encourage
ment and assistance be given, so that at
the close of the year, when the •new fur
naces need ore, the Harrisburg and Po
tomac Railroad shall be fully completed
and able to furnish them.
With a view to a complete develop

of their road, the company is now having
prepared by Prof. J. P. Lesley, of Phila

the ores of the country which must find
their way to the'market . by this route.—

Tho Harrisburg Telegraph of a late
date says : Why a difference should be
made in the pay of male 'and female teach
ers of the same grade, is what we never
could understand, and what, we think, it
would puzzle the wisest board of school
directors to explain. That such a differ
ence in pay should be made not only in
our schools but in every branch of busi
ness is, to say the least of it. not credita
ble to those who have control of the mat
ter, whether they be school directors, mer
chants, mechanics, or members of profes
sions employing male and female assistants.
Alluding to a recent casein our own State,
the Providence Press makes these just and
proper remarks : "Were they knaves or
fbols ? for men who expected so much for
so little must be put down in one or the
other of these categories ; there is no mid
dle ground. A few weeks ago the School
Board of Pottsville, Pa., advertised for a
female teacher, setting forth that "all ap
plicants are to be examined, in addition
to the common branches, in algebra, A
merium literature, botany, geometry, the
constitution, trigonometry, surveying, ge
'ology, physiology natural ph ilosoph y,
chemistry, mineralogy, astronomy and
rhetoric," offering for a female thus quali
fied the magnificent sum of thirty-five dol
-1 .rs a month. Was impudence and mean
ness ever put more clearly on paper ?
Qualifications embracing all particulars
short of the classics, to be rewarded by a
monthly stipend of thirty-five dollars!
But the essential meanness of the thing
was climaxed by hiring a male teacher,
after a few weeks, when it was found no
female would respond, at double the sti
pend the month, and without an exami
nation. These men did not believe that
tae laborer, if a woman, was worthy of
her hire. This disparity of wages between
males and females as teachers, where sim
iliar services are to be performed, is rank
ly unjust and has a disastrous effect upon
schools. Cheap teachers are dear ; set
the standard high, and pay- accordingly,
if there are to be good schools." -

usually well.. So far as the wheat crop is
concerned a failure such us had not been
experinced in the county for many years
is conceded by all classes. Portions o of the
crop which a couple of weeks since prom
ised a fair yield, are now found to be bro
ken in the straw and seriously da.maged
by the fly. Within the last week whole
fields have been turned down by the plow
and farmers are still planting corn where
they expected to harvest wheat. Should
the season prove favorable an immence
yield of corn may be anticipated, which
will in a great measure make up for the
falling off in ivheat. From a third to one
half more has been planted than usual.—
The same may be said of potatoes.

Tm RamioAD.—The J3altlmore

money can be secured in • our town and

have been corresponding with the Corn
and Flour Eschan.e of Tinian:tore fo
several months without arriving at any
definite or sittitfitctory conclusion in re
gard to the matter. A. letter from Mr.
John B, Cox, Chairman of the Baltimore
Committee was published in Monday's
American, from which we make the fol.
lowing brief extract:
"The committee of the Corn and Flour
Exchange has not been adviSed that any
one of the three routes surveyed' had
been decided upon by, the Waynesboro'
committee, but we have been advised
that "all 'that is wanted is money 'from
your city," sand another "we are waiting
now to see what Baltimore will do." In
answer to this view of the matter we said,
"You will remember that the prevailing
sentiment at the time of our` visit to you
was 'agree amongst yourselves ; have
your surveys and estimates made; and
decide upon a route ; secure the right of
way, and ascertain the amount of actual
subscription you can obtain and secure."
You have given us no information in re
gard to these various points, and we are
no more prepared to tell our citizens
what you can do and will do than when
we returned from your beautiful valley."
The committee were told by letter, "We
will need thirty or forty thousand dollars
from-your-city. " om-your city.' Our-answer - ww"This
sprit , is not large, and if your road was in
process of construction, and you could
show that the issue of twenty-five 'or
thirty thousand dollars in bonds and for

finish the road, we are very sure there
would be no trouble raising the money,"
andin the same letter we said, "If the
citizens of your valle will do their duty,
raise all the money t hey can, and show
the right spirit in the matter, they can
get help, but if they want Baltimore to
lead, I fear they will be disappointed."—
The committee felt and feel willing to
help, but it does not wish to bear • the
whole-burden; or-impose it upon the city."
In view of the fact that the road
wou . contr.' ute so. ma real y
wealth of our town and neighborhood,
Mr. Cox thinks our .eo .le ou...ht at least
be willing to tend off in the matter, and
adds: "A few enterprising, wholesouled
men are willing to labor and to spend
their means, but they cannot do all. Let
them do what they can, and their earn
est efforts will meet with eicoursging
support. It is not for them to wait to see
what Baltimore will do, or what the
Western Maryland will do, but if they
will do theirduty I feel assured there is
every disposition on the part of the Di•
vectors of the Western Maryland to give
aid at the proper time, and an entire
willingness on the part of the committee
to lay the claims of the road before our
citizens generally, and oar City Council
POPULAR NoNsENsE.—That the farm
of the Snow Hill Society contains 20 acres
of land and was a grant from the state
for religious purposes, is all nonsense.—
About the year 1750 quite a body of land
was taken up where Snow Hill now is
fourid,and paid for just like all other lands.
Al oit the year 1800, or some years later,
the estate now known as Snow Hill was
bought from the legal heirs for religious
purposes, for eight thousand dollars, if we
are correctly informed. At all events,
each one of the heirs received one thousand
dollars, and we think there were eight of
them. Since then over five thousand dsa
lars were paid into the Society by mem
bers of the church.
The society holds a charter of incorpora
tion by which the members of the church
can elect a board of trustees outside of the
farm as well as upon it. The farm con
tains about 130 acres with several tracts
of mountain land. 0. S.
Editor:—By the peculiar mode of
publishing the annual statement of Bo
rough receipts and expenditures adopted
by our City Fathers of last Town Coun
cil very few of the citizens can conveni
ently examine for themselves. Perhaps
half dozen or lets written notices are put
up—at hotels and a few other places—
whereas by the plan used by all other
boroughs they are duly printed in a news
paper. Can you inform us why these an
nual reports of our municipal authorities
exhibiting lately considerable expendi
tures, are not worthy the usual publica

every home in the borough? We who
did happen to see one of the written state
ments find a matter which we wish to
know something about. It is this—near
the lower part occurs this line: "Sundry
persons for work and 'materials $917,25."
Is it because this is such a very trifling
sum that the people need not bother them
selves about the parts and parcels com
posing it? Whether the new borough au
thorities will see fit to sulhere to the pen
ny-wise-pound-foolish economy of written
statements, or the more sensible plan of
newspaper publication, we cannot tell, but
we are sure of one thing and that is—
that the taxpayers whose money pays the
fiddler—bare a right to know the items
of this 8917,25 as well as of the other
parts of the statement, and want to see
