The editor of the Canton Transcript
copies our announcement of the decease
of the Patriarch of the Zoaritea, and
writes thus of that singular people.
The sketch is graphical and truUlul:
The Patriarch f Zoar now sleeps in
the tomb. The history of this commu
nity is of interest, as exhibiting tho mor
al force of single individual as well
as a practical demonstration ofsocif Usui.-
"Wo bavo always boon impressed
with the idea that this colony, (original-
I" consisting of about two hundred indi
viduala,) left Wurtembtirg, in Germany,
on accouut of religious persecution.
They are in religion what is termed Sep
aratists, because they separat Irom Lu
ther and others: or rather, they are dia-
ciples of Jacob Ik-hman, who I
ome two hundred years since.
"They embarked for the New World
fron Germany in the spring of 1317,
and landed in IMiiUdelphu in August ol
the same year. W hen they lauded on
our shores they were poor in purse and
ignorant of the manners and customs of
the Americans. The Qutkers ot Phila-
delphia rendered them asdialunce, and

"Subject to alt manner of privationM
and toil incident to aettiing in a new

"This Community or association pre

great truths. They commenced in ab

Tbey have adhered to certain fixed
principles, and have ever held them sa
credly in view, and now in the evening
ol their life, they are enjoying the abun
dant harvest of their early labor.
But their Patriarch is with them no
tnoe. lie has fulfilled his destiny, and
his mission is apparent to every one
who has arrived at that point in philoso
phy which lurmshej us with an insight
into the motives of mankind. Tho
problem has been solved that a commu
nity can exist in peace, quietness, hur
inony and love, where a manifestation
of the buer passions, j.tils, judges, jurors,
and all the endless paraphernalia attend
ant upon the administration of Statut
Law are strangers. The problem h-is
been solved, that tue doctrine of the
Nazarene, "Love thy neighbor as thy
self," and the new commandment which
he gave his dUci(lcs "Love one anolh.
er," are fundamont.il principles of socie
ty; a perversion of thece doctrines are
fraught with alt the evils we daily wit
ness in society. Yet the Zoarits believe
not in the mission of the Nazarene.
Many entertain fears that the Commu
nity will now bo dissolved. We ven
ture to predict that so long as any of
those bardy pioneers, who have borne
the burden of the heat and tabor for one
third of a century, exist, the community
will not be dissolved. If it were dis
aofred, ere twelve months it would again
' be formed. The ties, the trials, the as
sociations, the labors, the sufferings of
a lifetime are not dissolved In a moment.
The Pioneers are too old to learn the
ways of the world in the evening of their
life. The prisoner who after thirty
years confinement was liberated, after
, enjoying his liberty two days, required to
be sent back to prison it was his home
and he desired no ether.
The Zoar community is not a monar
chy, but an (elective system in which fe
males enjoyed an equal right with tho

We are happy in beingable to say to
our readers, this morning, that the ter
minns of tho Fort Way no road has been
tin ally fixed at New Albany, and as we
think on very favorable terms.
The basis of theagreemcnt cr.t.-rcd in
to between the comtnitteo representing
the Fort Wayne company, and th com
mittee on the part of our city is briefly
The city of New Albany Is to subscribe
in tho stock of the Fort Wayne road
$300,000 and 300,000 in the Sandusky
road. The stock already subscribed, or
agreed to bo subscribed in the counties
of Clark and Scott (including Jefferson
ville.) ofthe Fort Wayne road amount
ing to $450,050 Is to be equally divided
I between tho two,. ay .5225,000 in each,
j This makes tho joint subscription of the
thrco counties, 6(025,000 tn the Fort
Wayno road, and $525,000 in the San
dusky road. In addition to this, the cit
izens of Lexington and Scott county,
pledge themselves for an additional sub
scription of $50,000 in tho Sandusky
road, thus increasing the stock otthat
coinf any to $575,000. Should the coun
ties of Clark and Scott fall short of tho
$150,000 proposed to bo subscribed in
the two roads, jointly independeutof the
s?50.000 to be subscribed in the Sandus-
Ky road, by the people of Lexington,
then tho subscription of New Albany
m.iy bo reduced pro rata,
iiigton, uro to be mad
e points on me two
roudii. lho ro&da uro to pass over a
common road bed, to bo gruded for a dou
bl track as fur as Lexington, say 34
miles. The road bud to be made at tho
common cost of the two companies, and
t ) be owned in common. Iloth compa
nies have the rlht to lay down a se pa
rtite and independent track at any time
but the Sandusky road takes prece
deuce. In the event that the Fort
Wuyne Company should defer laying
down their track for the present, the San-
dusky Company grants them the privi-
lejo of using their track in common with
themselves, upon tho payment of 5 per
cent per annum of the pi ime cost of the
same together with all her depo's, water
stations &c, and 5 percent upon the cost
ol all necessary repairs during the perl-
od of joint occupancy of said track, the
Sandusky Company reserving to tuem
selves the right of terminating the joint
occupancy at any time after rive years,
by giving two yours notice.
It is also agreed that if the Sandusky
road should not be completed within a
reasonable time, or should not terminate
at New Albany, or the Sandusky Com
pany should disagree to the stipulations,
as to the joint occupaucy of the road
then the city of New Albany is to sub
scribe in the stock of the Fort Wayne
road the sum of 8350,000.
Such are briefly the terms of the agree
ment, as entered into between the two
committees, aud as approved by the City
Council with only two dissenting votes.
We may refer to this matter again and
more fully, on our return from tho rail
road convention at Eaton, which com
