0. 'rhat as the use of the public works on the
Sabbath is attended with a lamentable deprave-
Heti 'of morale in the community residing on the
line of them, and does not even secure any per
manent pecuniary advantage to individuals,
eardpintes, or the commonwealth ; we thelefore
earnestly and respectfully request the proper
authorities to direct, that these works shall not
be ueed on that day ; and we feel fully assured
thot the action herein proposed will receive the
cordial approbation of the community represen

The subscribers, a committee appointed by
the late Sniff/alb Convention assefribled at
Chnurthernhurg, respectfully represent:
That the convention from which they derived
their appointment, was a large and highly re
!timetable body of citizens. composed of many
delegates from the• counties of Adams, Cum
berland, Dauphin. Perry and Franklin; and by
their proceedings have borne their testimony to
the importance and ohligition of observing the
Lorna day, as a ally of rest from all worldly
brininess or eniployment; and appointed the'
nabscribeis as a committee to Wrens yen, re-i
questing that you would misspend the travel of
your oars on the Cumberland Valley Railroad
company on the Sabbath. As the committee I
of the convention, and nn Stockholders of the
company of whose affairs you are managers,
we respectfully invite your attention to the sub
ject. The Sabbath we consider a divine insti
tution, by the appointment of the Almighty,'
and conneerated:by the observance of a Christ
inn people. By Legislative enactment from the'
first 'settlement of Pennsylvania, the violation
j of the Lord's day by worldly employment or
business was subjected to penalties.
It is to j ho,remarked, that the first colonists,
when preparing to embark for their new settle
ment in Pennsylvania, proclaimed an manor the
fundamental laws of the colony, ss Tint trery

Our courts of justice and halls of legislation

of your corporation, you would not consent

powers on the Sabbath. As the President and
illllgerA are not disposed, or do not feel them
at liberty; to act on that day In the
sphere of their corporate capacity, why shall
it, by your authority, he imposed on your subor
dinates and agents, to be engagad in transport-1
ins; your cars on the Sabbath as they do on other
days-- , in violation of law, in corruption of such
agents, and to the evil example of the public.
The transportation of these ears leads to
the desecration or the Sabbath by those em
ployed, es well 213 in the travel Induced ; but
also interrupts the order, peace and quiet of the
day. in our towns and attracting the
attention of young and old from its observance,
and at times interfering with and disturbing
Christian worship ill Ott r churches.
Vie deean it unnecessary to enlarge upon the
evils attendant on tilia Ira vel, ns they have no
doubt been presented to the observation of your
intelligent Board. The committee would fur
ther represent, that they are informed that the
cessation of business during the Sabbath on ea-
rime r s Canals and llailroadn in this and other
States hue operated to the manifest advantage
of all the interests concerned In the trade of
those thoroughfares. On the collier railroads
of this State business is suspended during the I
Sabbath, and nit the Lehigh Cu rani and on the
Delatvare Division of the. Stale Canal.
Tho committee are also ielonnell that the nrs
are not run on any Railroad in the New England
States on the Sabbath, except the train froin
Now York, which' goes into Boston early on.
Public opinion has, within the last twoyeara,
been strongly' xpressed in several respectable
conventions, Within this State, recommending
to the Canal Commissioners and the Legisla•
ture,the cessation from travel rind transportation
on the public works of the State on the Sab•
bath, and:memorials subserlhed in many couns
ties by great nninbers of eititens have express
ed their desire that there should be that cessa
The committee suppose. that from the limit
ed transportation no tho Cumberland Valley
Railroad on the Sabbath, and the disinclination
of many porsons to travel on that day, that the
business done on the Sabbath in the rumaing of
cars cannot be advantageous or profitable to the
company; and that to suspend the running of
the cars on that day, would not only relieve the
conductors, engineers, and firemen, and others,
from employ moat on the Sabbath, but be to the
pecuniary advantage of the company.
If, as managers of the company, you feel
yourselves constrained by engagements with
other Railroad companies, or as mail carriers,
to prosecute the Sabbath travel, unless you are
relieved from such obligations to others, we
ask you to make knownlour desire to tliscon•
tinue the use of your ears on the Sabbath, and
give the Christian community the Influence of
your opinion in favor of such suspension; and
that the public may know with whom the re
sponsibility rests, Whether it be any other
Railroad company or the Governments agents.,
