others, as is duly denioslMlcd by the building
or ihe ticket and Irelghl house, 10 by Sc
at the Harbor, between Saturday morning
last and Sunday nlhl, together wiib 70 feel of
plallorm. That looks a liltle like earnest w ork
but energy aud determination, will accom
plish wonders, as Ibis whole Harbor Division
work has very forcihy shown. The land
contracts were so drawn nnd conditioned,
(hat the road was required to b in running
order by the lOlh Inst. This w as accomplish

ed on Monday morning the 9tl. Two cur
of our citizens visited the Harbor and
returned, on the first train. It is understood
I lint the trains are lo continue for 1 lie present,
to run between Ihe Harbor and Hie Rtal'on.
ImpRovemknt. The slopes of the embank
ment to the Iruck of the hnrbor division run
ning along the Thayer hill, at Ihe harbor, ex
tend well into the carriage road mid Imposes
the necessity of throwing the rond over to the
north. This is being done In a most complete
and finished way, much for the improvement
of the highway, as well ns for Its general ap
pearance. The generous view taken by Chief
Engineer Williams, and the liberal manner of
ihe execution of the work, should be recog
nized and appreciated. We understand thut
a fence is to be built along Ihe slope for the
protection of the public travel.
The railroad bridge on Ihe plank rond is In
the course of re-crectlon, nnd in a few days
w ill be again in order lo accommodate ll.e

Thayer's, to the Harbor. These were tests
lo Bound the depth ol earth. The piles struck
the shulu ut some 7 or 8 feet, brooming up
the ends us was found upon drawing one
of them out. The inclinntion of the shale Ik
rapidly downward towaids Ihe channel.
This discovery of the nearness of the rock lo
to Ihe surface is, w e understand, considered
rather nn advantage than otherw ise, lo the
work, ns by the use of iron points lo

slime ot mental nnd heart cut lure. While
their business nnd business places show the
first, their social bearing affords ninny pleas
ing evidences of the latter. A ride .about I lie
village with its very genial and gentlemanly
Mayor, Mr. Wilcox, leaves the impression
that the institutions thut mould and shape
s iclety have not been overlooked. It hns a
church, we believe, well attended and sus
tained for nearly every orthodox denomina
tion. It has a fine, spacious brick school
house, beautifully located, standing back from
ihe street, and endowed with ample liberal
grounds for the development of tho physical
powers and faculties of its youth, while those
of a mental character find ample development
within. Among its mauufacturies, the tuunhig
business is perhaps the most Important, and
distributes us much material wealth as any
other. Being surrounded by a fine grazing
country, and in the midst of a.well to-do farm
ing population, it sustains one or two cheese
factories, and like others of these institutions
lu these parts, of but recent origin, have their
Influence upon the growth aud increase of the
dairy interests. The location and surround
ings of the place, however, are favorable for,
and demand a large amount of mercantile
business. There Is, therefore, a lnrge amount
of capital thus1 invested, and a transient ob
server rendily discovers its need in the activi-.
ty and stir throughout tho village. We no
tice among tho leading haberdashers, tho es
tablishment of Messrs. Cask & Pierce, who
like those of their competitors, keep a uener.il
supply such as are usually found in a coun
try store of dry goods, grocerries, boots and
shoes, bats and caps ftc. Their stock, how
ever, Is large and while they appear to
prompt nnd ready business men, their busi
ness qualities urn not a gratuitous. or idle pos
session. The senior member of the firm U
nly a prosperous business man, but he seems
lo be equally prosperous in some ol his other
Interests, as ou -the 5lh inst., his household
had a couple of male additions, which ap-
pears to bo a very fair beginning in Iho patii-1
urchnl line. On the diagonally, opposite cor-
ner is the well supplied drug and bar J wars
concern of Messrs. Brettclle & Latimer. This
bclnir a new store is one of the pleasantest
the village, and the well ordered stock,
agreeable bearing of the gentlemanly proprie
tors, is well' calculated lo make it it popular
resort. Next to them, In the same block,
Ihe store of Dean & Bladen. This is
style of tho old firm, which Is retained, not
withstanding our friend, F. Harrington, hns
partnership interest lu tho business. Their
immense stock, embracing about .everything
to be found In a couutry store, is spread
two. of the three stores of the brick block.
The partners are all business men, and
have a baud lu supplying the wauts oi
numerous customers.. A little fuither down
the street is tho store of E. ft G. Bailey,

modest and unpretentious gcutlemen,

standing and a goodly share of trudo. Kec

Mr. V. D. Latimer, opposite the Loau Com

stock of drugs and medicines, hardware,
&c. The quiet, amiable, pleasant tan

and general air of the establishment are pretty
good qualities lo draw, and Mr. Latimer seems
to be realizing these legitimate fruits. Mr.

In many localities along the lakes there are

Inden with railroad lion, nnd copper ore, and
other property ol grent value. With the aid
of modern w reck ing uppliances very many of
these vessels, with their ctrgoes, are possible
of recovery, and, from what can be learn
ed, we understand the experiment will soon
be made. Parlies are now engaged in recov

loaded with railroad Iron, sunk into the St.

The speaker cut close at the nonsense of

how to teach language lessons In eight of
