To the Editors of The Alleghanian:
Since mj former letter, a bill has been
read in tic. lower House, by Representa

seat of Cambria county to Johnstown.
What position Mr. Porter will take, on
the qnestion, I am not positively informed.

not be difficult for any observing mind to

Yoder tp., you will find the vote about
3,600, which is more than one-half the
vote polled in the county. The above
named districts are confidently expected to
favor the question with a great degree of
nnanimity, irnd this, with the assistance
obtained from the extreme, northern town
ships, many of whose citizens favor the
movement, will secure a favorable vote,
Hence yoa cannot fail to' see the final
The partial'dismembcrment of the coun
ty is not iiow disguised by the leaders in
the matter. All the territory north of the
turnpike will be detached to form, with
prts of Iudiana and Clearfield counties, a
now county, and in lieu of this loss, two
towHLips fiom Somerset, and one ; each
from Westmoreland, and Indian will be
fiod to Cambria, which will give ample
rritory for the new county, and a conve
nience to the seat of justice for the towu-
liips not now enjoyed by them. Should
ihis plan be pnccessfully carried out, your
mountain village will be located at the ex
treme southern border 'of Pine or some
'.ber county, and you can truly but sorrow
fiHy say, "our glory is departed." .
One or two objections are brought to
bear. :gainst the whole movement by some
ilour more staid and less aspiring citizens.
The first is the heavy taxation necessitated
't erecting public buildings, and as this
fills heavily on those who are holders of
property, some of whom are now oppressed
ul overburdened with taxes, they may
nut be easily induced to support the meas
ure, but in view of increased business,

OLD PORTAGE BAILBOAD B7 THK P.- B. K.
LOOKING UP MINERALS AND MANUFACTURES
THE STRING ELECTIONS, AC.
Wilmore, Feb. 6, 18G9.
To the Editors oj The Alleghanian :
Our worthy County Superintendent of
Common Schools paid us a short visit on
Thursday last, for the purpose of holding
an examination for teachers for our pri
mary school. A number of applicants
appeared and passed a creditable examina
tion. The school was allotted to Mr. C.
G. Palmer, of Indiana. Our schools are
now under headway for a term of six
Our quiet village was thrown into some
stir last week by the official announcement
that the old Portage Railroad would be
relaid and operated again, under the man
agement of the Pcnna. . R. R. Co. The
idea awakened keen recollections of the
past, for the Portage was an "institution"
in its day. Should this result be realized,
might not the county-seat stop here, in
stead of be carried to Johnstown 1
Things are looking up here. I am in
formed that we ship almost double the
amount of lumber, shook, and produce
from this point that we did before the
construction of the railroad from Cresson
to your town. This may be so, and speaks
well for individual exertion.
I am also informed that a company is
about being formed here to manufacture
pig metal, iron, nails, and steel from the
raw material. Large bodies of valuable
iron ore, coal, limestone, Sec, have been
discovered in this immediate neighbor
hood. Two reliable companies have been
prospecting to this end lately, and with
good indications of success.
Our annual spring election is drawing
near, and as it approaches, we are admon
ished that a very lively time may be antic
ipated. A number of good names have
suggested themselves, from which a ticket
can be selected that will shed honor upon
our borough. jTo add to. the interest al
ready felt in the general result of things,
I am informed that thc term of one of
our valued Justices is drawing to a close.
I refer to that of Esquire Joseph Miller,
a citizen of some thirty years standing
among us, and who has served as a Justice
some ten years, with great credit to us, and
not without some profit to himself. On
whom his mantle will fall is beyond the
ken of the subscriber to tell. Our very
worthy friend and Justice has made some
extensive investments in "Bleeding Kan
sas," and eventually intends making that
State his future home. : : This brings to our
mind very forcibly the memory of bygone
days, when our friend was wont to hold
forth to admiring crowds the wrongs and
outrages of that far distant country, plead
ing for freedom and the principles you and
I love and cherish so much. He, in con
nection with our worthy chief magistrate,
Gov. Geary, have spcntthcirfbcst endeav
ors in making this State what she is, se
curing unto her freedom and good govern
ment. The Justice's eloquence is prover
bial. " I hope our loss may be his gain, and
may his future be bright and prosperous.
A number of names before me suggest
ample material out of which to hew thc
timber for- our various efficcs. Among
them may be found our ga)lant and brave
friend, Capt. Hughes, of blessed Monitor
memory. I aminformcd he is much pres
sed to accept the responsible position 'of
Justice when Esq. Miller shall retire. I
am also advised our friend Clay comb wo'd
not be. averse to serving his constituents,
if he shoulvi have any, in the same capaci
ty, should, the mantle fall on him. . Our
borough will be honored in his selection.
lias he pot , served his country ? And
does he not bear on his body numerous
evidences of his patriotic devotion 'to his
country? :,lt is'also " 'mentioned that "the
able county Auditor from this" district
could be induced to lay down his life for
his friends in this connection. He would
certainly shed lustre on our pneient village.
May his shadow never grow. .less. -He,
would make a good Justice of the Peace.

To the Editors cf The Alleghanian: '
Owing to the bad condition of the roads,
business here is extremely dull. Nearly
all the roads leading henee are impassible,
caused by the recent thaw. The hills are
bare, and deep with nud, and on the shel

too soft to be trod on by horses. Conse
quently, farmers and others are excluded
from town, and we are almost entirely shut
out from the world. .
On Tuesday last, several persons who
had come to town to attend a public sale
could not, it appears, agree. A discussion
with . fists was resorted to, aud the result
was a plurality of black eyes and bloody
noses. Cause vendue whisky. "
