Lackawanna and Bloomsburg Railroad.
We liad the ploasurc on list Friday
tho 17th of December of wilnosslnc tho
completion of that great enterpriio, tho
Lackawanna and Blonmsburg Railroad.
Tho rails met at Berwick, about 2 o'clock,
1'. M., amid tho hcirty cheers and oon.
gratulalions of tho assembled multitude
who had convoned there for tho purposo of
witnessing that much desired operation.
Fasiengcr Cars wero immediately procured
for an excursion, tho Directors and Con.
ductor poliicly inviting tho parly present
nnd their friends to join in the first ride
over tho Road, when the Cars were at once
filled to overflowing, a large portion of
which was composed of tho Ladies of Ber
wick, and tho excursionists set out for
Rupert Station. The train passed down
majestically, safely and pleasantly, in
quick time, to tho satisfaction of tho cntiro
company, arriving ntRupcrt about 5 o'clock,
when it returned for Scranton, tho same
evening, but wc cant speak of its trip far
thcr from observation, as wt with many
others, mado our exit from the Cars at
Tho erection of tho L. & B. R. lt. is
truly a great enterpriio for our citizens,
and inaugurates a ncwfealuro in our ccun
try. Wo arc no longer in the woods. Wo
arc all tho time at home, and yet, conveni
ent to everybody and everywhere.
Tho Directors, Officers, and Managers
of this magnificent Road, nino miles of
which, between Bloomsburg and Briar
creek, is 33 straight as a dyo, dciervo great
credit for their indomitable energy and
persovoranoe in prosecuting this work to a
fpcedy completion, in tho face of tho pres
ent overwhelming financial crisis. Indeed
wo' think, they did more than their duty,'
to accomplish the entrrpnzc, as itis known
that.most of tho officers interested, with
other pulJia spirited gentlemen, have
drawn largely upon their privato fortunes,
to raise the moans for its early completion.
The Road ii finished, and tho Cars,
carrying the U. 8. Mail, now run daily
between Kupcrt and f-or.mton. Its stock
is believed to bo among tho best Rail Roid
invtstmcnls in iho country. It cant bo
otherwise. The road is of quito a level
grade, running parallel with tho North
Branch Canal and Susquehanna River,
leading Into llio Leart of (no Wyoming
Valley, opening up a direct communication
between tho Philadelphia, Cattawissa,
Williamsport and Erie Rail Road, and the
New York and Lake Erie, affording at
once a direct interchange of tho untold
Iron Ore, Limestone and other mineral
wealth of Columbia, and tho inexhaustible
Coal fields of Luzerne.
Wo ars n for the Lackawana and
Bloomsburg. It is just the neatest little
institution isthis commonwealth. And, in
conclusion, wc take occasion to add, that
the Company have been most fortunate
in tho selection of such eminent business
gentlemen as F. J. Leavenworth, Esq.,
Superintendent, and Col. R. S. Adams,
Candidate for Canal Commis
sioner. lion. Westi.ey Frost, of Fayetto coun
ty, is named in the Pittsburg Post, and
Uniontown "Genius of Liberty," as tho
cext democratio candidate for Canal Com
missioner. Col. Frost is a gentleman of
capacity, experience and fidelity having,
during Gen. Pierce's Administration, filled
tho office of Marshal for ihe Western Dis
trict of Pennsylvania with distinguished
ability, and various other posts of trust
and honor to general satisfaction and
fhould tho Wostern Democracy, who have
the undoubted right to make tho selection
of tho next Canal Commissioner, to sue
eeed Mr. Pldmeu in tho Canal Board,
confer this honor upon Mr. Frost, his
nomination would be triumphantly ratified
by the invincible Democracy of Pennsyl
vania, Col. F. has all tho requisite qual
ifications for an efficient member of tho
Canal Board, and should ho receive tho
jiqminatiop of iho next 4th of March Con
vention of which wo have little doubt,
ho may' calculate, with moral cortainty,
upon tho honest, energetic and efficient aid
of tho Northern Democracy, so far as that
can bo influenced by iho efforts of tho
bumble Editor of the Co'umbia Democrat."

A Fpccial Train of Cars, containing
somo hundred gentlemen, was despatched
on Monday evening from Philadelphia,
which arrived at Danville at about 11 o' -
clock, whore they remained over night.
On Tuesday morning, at 8 o'clock, tho
company reinforced by many of the citi -
zensof Danville took Cars for Rupert Sta-1
tion, where they wero joined by a very re-
spectablo delegation from Bloomsburg (we
had joined them at Danville) and with
additions at Cattawissa, passed on very
pleasantly, over tbe C. W. & 13. R. R. to
the junction of tho Roads, at Beaver Sta-
tion, where tho train diverged to tho East,
on the now road, and convoyed tho joyful
party, without let or hindrance, about 10
o clock, up to tho Ciiy of Monticrllo. For
our plcarant passage and safe deliverance,
through the acra of unstcamcd wilderness,
wo should not omit to nnko our acknowl
edgemets to tho ever faithful aod gentlo
manly management of Ool. Henry A.
Fonda, the efficient Superintendent of tho
C. W. & E. It. R., and his equally honor
able co-laborer, Col. Covcll, tho Conductor,
who on tins occasion entirely omraittcd
that important part of his usual duties.
Arriving at tho base of tho McCauly
Mountain, the company, after partaking of
something good to drink and trying some
of Col. Crcswcll's old Havanas, ascended
tho rugged steeps to tho mouth of the Coal
Mines, and mado a thorough examination
of tho Steam Saw Mill, Coal cracker ma
chinery, the Anthracite voin which is somo
7 or 0 feet under Iho archiDg, and extends
near a quarter milo into tho hills. This
Coal, of which thero is a largo quantity
mined, appears to be of excellent quality,
and is said to be inexhaustible. Tho largo
Coal breaker, near tho mouth of tho mines
is altogether a magnificent structure.
Descending to tho City, wc mean, Mon
ticcllo, here the entire company, numbering
as wo suppose, somo two hundred persons,
wero invited by Col. Crcswell, ono of tho
proprietors, to a most sumptous repast.
The viands were of tho first magnitude,
and tho other "fixtures," were of the same
character. Satisfied wo aro, that all who
participated in the opening as well as the
filling, camo away well satisfied.
On removing tho cloth after dinner t asts
were drank aud sentiments offered. As a
sequence, speeches were made, in response
to frequent calls, by Gov. Pollock, Judge
Samuel V. Merrick, Lawyer Maynard,

Tho New Columbus Academy.
We had tho especial pleasuro last week,
through tho polito invitation of Judge
Koons, and Esquiro Chapin, two of the
trustees of tho Columbus Mule and Female
Academy, of vi-iting this flourishing Lit
erary Institute, and witnissiog ono of tho
regular weekly examinations of its Stu
dents: Hcv. II. D. Walker, tho I'rinci
pal, ii a gentleman of high literary attain
ment, amply quilificd for tho important
trust ho has assumed, and judging from tho
brief opportunity we enjoyed of witnissing
tho exercises, wo aro led to believe that
tho Columbus Acadtmy, is destined, at no
distant day, to occupy a high position in
tho Academical Institutions of this Com
monwealth. The next Term of this In
stitution, will commence on Monday, 4th
of neat January, as per Trustees card
in our columns, and wo confidently com.

to his doraicil, by indisposition, we aro
happy to announco,is convalescent, and as
an cvidenco of his good tense and sound

in our sanctum. Ho entertains strong
hopes, through tho continutd blessings of
Divine Providence, ol being amo to laice
his seat, at the opening of tho session, in
the State Seuato. This will be gratifying
nowa to the numerous friends of that dis
tinguished young statesman, throughout
our Comniouweslth, as it is generally
conceded that his presouce In tho Senate

and important, but that his abrenco would

J5T" Financial advices from Hamburg,
Austria, Prussia, Swccdon and Norway,
show that the crisis is very severe. The
1 1'rco city of Hamburg has nono but a hard
currency, and tho only relief afforded by
' the senate to tho merchants has been tho
Issue of notes of credit to tho amount of
ono million upon tho security of produce
The senate might issue paper money, and
thoy might relievo Ihe failing merchants by
accepting their liabilities, but they aro
probably too wiio and cautious to employ
these remedies, which might prove worso
than tho disease. It is a curious fret that
gold is dearer at this moment in London
than in Hamburg, and exchanges between
the two cities is in favor of Hamburg, The
English papers traco tho revulsion in
Hamburg and Altona to ihe ccnncction in
trade with tho United States tho larger
portion of the cxpor:a of Hamburg, whioh
amount to 30,000,000 lbs. annually, being
sent to this country, almost all tho German
goods coming through that port, Hamburg
and Altona, whioh has railroad communi
cation with Kiel, aro closely connected in
the large import trade of tho principal
ports of Swccden aud Norway, to which
the commercial troubles have extended,
through speculation probably.
Report of (ho Postmaster General,
The report of the postmaster general,
Gov. Aaron V. Brown, is a laborious and
instructive exposition of tho important
concerns of this great branch of the public
