GETTYSBURG RAIL ROAD.
The report of the committee appointed to
view this road, and decide as to the practica
bility or impracticability of finishing it; have
made a lengthy report, elucidating in a very
clear and satisftctoiy manner, the folly of
this undertauing, and the wastelul expen
dituro of public money that would attend
its completion. They say tho work was
commenced in folly, that it is disconnected
from any public work loading to the westerti
country, that its termination is on the summit
of south mountain, presenting tho appear
anco of an American Sibctia. It has been
ascertained that tho Baltimore and Ohio
'rail roail, with which the Gettysburg road
'was intended to bo connected, will not be
'extended up through Pennsylvania to the
Ohio, but tako quite a contrary direction,
'thtough Virginia to some point far down
tho Ohio. Tho committee have further sta
ted, that the completion of this road would
.yruin tho southern counties of this state, and
materially and injuriously affect the busi-
Ticus of Philadelphia, by taking the trade of
the West from' that city, and carrying it to
Baltimore ; under these and other consider
ations, tho committee recommended that all
operations on this work be immediately sus

Tho urgent solicitations of numerous friends, and tho prospect of liberal . patronage,
have induced tho undersigned to issue these proposals, and ask tho support of the pub
lic. In politics, the 'Pottsvillk Ejiroitiuji" will zealously support the principle's and
candidates, of tho Democratic party, and particularly tho nomineo of tho 5th of March
Convention : But, aside from patty feeling, it shall bo our main object to enhance tho
interests of our fcllow-cilizens, by promoting that industry and cnterprize which charac
lisc.thc operations of the Coal Region. Wo shall go for the honest many against tho
designing few on all occasions, reverencing that principle in our political creed, and op
posing any Monopoly which may retard the exercise of individual, rights, or have tho
tendency to put down individual industry and enterprise. In tine, our object shall bo
to promote the welfare of tho community amongst whom wc, live to. pleaso and in
struct and with no other promises, wc shall commence our paper, hoping that our ex
perience bolh as mechanical printers and editors, may fit us for our task, and afford that
gratification to patrons Which novet fails to induce the necessary recompense for servi
ces rendered in a laudable undertaking. " ;.
At present there is but one English paper published in tho county of Schuylkill a

1000. Then wc doubt not of the success of our establish mont, provided tho exertion of
friends iiia'y, in the launching of our bark, prevent it from mooring, upon thoso rocks and
shoals which generally render the commencement of a paper a matter of so much anx
