THE L ItOvt D ONCE Moßn---The
Railroad question ie still a prominent
"Copic" among our citizens, but no con
clusion seems yet to have been reached._
We have so often referred to the matter
and made fruitless suggestions, that any
as well as an unpleasant infliction upon
our patient readers. But nevertheless we
propose to venture, our "say" - once_ more
upon this important projective enterprise.
Our Railroad Committee,, to whom the
community at largo have been looking
for the last twelve months, or thereabouts,
for something which would give hopes of
suecss, have so fin disappoin.teed all ex
pectations. Project after project has, beau
entertained and abandoned, and the pres
ent finds us in the same uncertain situa
tion, with. the shrill whistle of the iron
horse on the W. M. R. It borne from the
mountain side to our very doors, Only
a 'few weeks and the, attention of our Com
rinittee was turned to the C. V. R.
But the idea of seeking a connection in
that direction seems to he dead or sleep
ing. We hope. the former. The propo
sition from the President of the Wash
ington County Branch R. R. has been
the last to claim their attention; but s(•
lir as our knowledge goes it is also in-
volved in a mist of uncertainties. Being
proposed to the W. M. R. R. it would ne
cessitate a heavier stock subscription, in,
eluding a cost for right of lyay of thirty
or forty thousand dollars against five or
six, with legislation to secure, &c. With
these uncertainties presenting themselves
in this direction would it not he advisa
ble for ottr Committee AT ONCj . to tun
their atteution to the proposed W. M,con
nectioa? A trifling sum, perhaps not mare
than fifteen thousand. dollars, is yet to bo
secured to make an amount sufficieot for
grading, bridging and right of way, To
suppose that this amount cannot he se
cured in a very short time if the effort is
made, is an erroneous supposition. Tlfe
amount, and' more, if needed, we believe
can be promptly secured. Nothing then
remains btalto locate the road and put
the work of grading and bridging under
contract. But here seems to lie the great
impediment, The , Baltimore Corn and
Flour Exchange Committee insist on one
thing an our Committee en another. The
former says—" Settle differences among
yourselves—adopt a line and go to work,
and at the proper time aid will be afford
ed fbr putting down the .superstructure,
&c. But our Committee insist upon some
definite or binding guarantee first. We
cannot believe anything else than that the
Baltimor'eaus have all the while been ac
ting in good faith, and that our Commit
tee will roily realize this if they v ill only
go forward. We have a charter and so
small araount to yet secure in stock sub
scriptions for our part of the work that
delay now seems suicidal. Again, it is the
line of road of all others most needed.—
As before said, it will afford the farmer
the shortest and cheapest outlet for his
grain awl other products, and enhance
the town interests more than any other
proposed road, because it will concentrate
• more trade than any other. The fact that
such a road would not perhaps prove sec
ond to Hagerstown in importance as a
feeder to the W. M. R. R. is evidence e
nough to our mind that the grading and
bridging done, putting on the superstruc
ture, &c. would at once follow. On this
point we. entertain not the shadow of a
doubt. Baltimore, and the W. M. IL R.
particularly, would have too much inter
est involved to 'withhold the needed assis
tance at this juncture when the invest
ment required would be so 'insignificant
compared with the advantages they would
thus derive. We are satisfied further,
that if the Committee will take upon
themselves the responsibility of thus coin-
meneing the work the community gener-
nllv will sanction their action

To , the Editor of the Franklin Repository.
As there is a good deal said about chang
ing the constitution of our State, would it
not be as well to change.the mode of do
ing things in our county ? Our taxes have
been so high for some time past that it
takes nearly the tenth bushel of all the
wheat we can raise to pay them, and that
too at a time when we haVe no State tRx
t) pay. I believe the Comm ssioners could
save a good deal if they would give every
thing they have got to be done to the low
-I:Tit-hidden Take for instance the Clerk
to the Commissioners; he gets $l,OOO a
year, while there are plenty of good school
teachers who are glad to get employment
at teaching for less than half that sum,
and any person qualified to teach school
would certainly be competent to act as
Clerk for the Commissioners. Let the re
pairing of bridges and all other contracts
be given to the lowest bidder, and require
the contractor to give good security for
the faithful performance of what he agrees
to do. In this way they will get good
men to do their work, for a had man
would not be able to aive the security. Let
the Poor House be managed in the same
way, and the lowest bidder system be
dopted for boarding the paupers, cloth
ing, medicine and whatever else is neces
sary, giving the contractor all he can make
on the farm and tne use of the house and
furniture, and - making it. the duty of the
Steward to see that the contractor does his
duty every day. The way things have
been managed it now costs about $l5O a
year for each pauper, while there are plot,
ty of good, honest men in the country
working on farms at a salary of $209,
who board and clothe themselves and a
wife and four or five children, and pay
house rent besides. Here we have the hon
est, hard working men keeping each mem
ber of his family on about $35 a year,
while we pay about four times as much
for each pauper at the Poor House. I be
lieve that there are plenty of good men in
the country who would take the Poor
otts aim air - -eerr-t e-paupers- or-a
great deal less than it has been costing,
and keep them just as well as they have
ever been kept. And if there could be
anything, saved by giving the Sheriff's of
fice, including the boarding of the priso
ners, to the lowest bidder, let it be done.
The way it has:been it costs a good deal
to be elected Sheriff'. In the first place
the candidate must canvass the county
to get the nomination, and after that he
must give some money to get the vote out,
&c.. &c. Counting time and money I
woullt suppose it would cost about a. thca -
sand dollars to be elected. This much I
think might`be saved by giving it to the
lowest bidder. And I think there could
be something saved by giving the County
Treasurer's office to the lowest bidder.—
The reason I think, so is, that I know some
men who have spert a good deal of mon
ey in trying to be elected to the office.—
But it is argued on the other side that we
might get bad officers in this way. It
might happen. But it sometimes happens
that we get bad officers by electing them.
But if they are compelled to give securi
ty, the taxpayer will not lose anything.
The carrying of mails is given to the low
est bidder, so with building bridges, hous
es, mills, factories, railroads, &c., and as a
general thing the bidders do their work
as well as the persons do who are elected
or appointed. I believe the men who fill
the different offices of the country are just
as honest and as good as any persons we
could elect, and I also believe that there
are plenty of other just as good,who would
be glad to fill the offices for one-half what
it costs now, and do the work just as well
as it has ever been done.

seventy-first birthday on Sunday, and the
event was celebrated at Salt Lake with
great eclat. Brigham was born at Whit

nection with Mormonism was in 1832,
when be announced himself as a `convert,•
and making.his.way to Kirtland, Ohio,
the then lleadquarters of the new dispen
sation, WAS ordained an Elder and began
to preach. Shortly afterwards he was or
dained ,one of: : the Tvielve Apostles, and
sent on a proselyting tour through the
Eastern States, where he was singularly
successful in making converts, and in 1844,
at the death of Joseph Smith, was elected
President of the Sect. In 1847, Brigham
removed to Salt Lake City, the Mormons
having been driven out of Nanvoo in '45,
and a year later the faithful emigrated
thither and founded the new kingdom
which they called Deseret.
