being plain but very neat The building committee
selected ns the site the summit of the
hill east of the Court House. Under the directions
of the enterprising con ./actors, Messrs.
Wklsok A Lanostom, we have no doubt that
the work will progress rapidly. The erection
of thia building will add much to the appcarAucc
of our quiet little town.
We were much pleaded during a recent visit
to tho Village of Greenville to It-cm that an
union of the friends of the Columbia A' Greenville
Rail Road had been effected, and that
Greenville wan to unite ivith the road at
Brown's. There would seem to be no doubt
but that the road will now be carried to that,
place, aa $160,000, out of $169,600, which U
the highest estimate of the con of this branch,
has been subscribed. The friends of the enterprise
do not desire to stop at the co?t of the
road but to cany at least ftOOjOOO into the
Company. This will benefit them, inasmuch
as it will give an additional impetus to th?
work, by giving so much additional stock to the
Company. There can be no doubt that with
Greenville for one of the upper termini for this
road, that the stock will bo more profitablo.?
For seek to di*gui?e it as you may unless the
road is carriod to that point, a large portion of
the trado coining through tha Saluaa Oap -will
go to Laurens, in proferenco to Anderson. For
Laurens Is only 36 miles from Oroenville while
Anderson is 30, then by going to the former
place, only 6 miles further, you reach a point
on the RiilmiH umlliiv*
ol to Columbia, while the distance from Andersonto
the name point is at least 120 miles
Then oo far as the profit on the stock is concerned,
it is decidedly to the intcrcnt of the
Company that tho road should be carried to
But so far as the iutercsts of this District
nre concerned, it is all important tliat Green,
