on the 19th olt-,ud placing the road un
der the vlrluoil ioUol of th popular
CiUimore,- .Ohio' Railroal Co., , will
greatly .benefit Southern. Ohio. There are
many" advantage to b derived by the
Important change;' anil (he Cincinnati
Gateltt thus speaks of th arrangement,
as relate to that city :
Mhi election Is part of ft railroad move
ment vt great importance toihis city. It
implies the control of the Marietta i Cin
cinnati Railroad by- the Baltimore Ohio
Company, 'in connection with the Cineia
nati, Indianapolis & Lofnyette Railroads,
forming through .ooDnoction end run
ning arraaKsment for carrying freight to
and from Baltimore and alt part of the
Wcbi! without change of-oar. It implies
the immediate completion of the bridge
over the Ohio river" at Parersburg, and
the putting of the Marietta Cincinnati
Kailraad tnt-4ret-ek rxiadition, and
furnishing it an equipment for the pres
ent wants and the increase of business
that will speedily follow this arrangement.
, It will be, the creation of, a great thor
oughfare from the seaboard through Cin
cinnati to (he heart of th Wast. It is
the' must 'important railroad event that
has happened te onr city for 'many years.
It Is reasonable, to suppose that the power
of thi great route , will extend its con
nections to all parte of the. West, North
west and Southwest," It future business
comprehends a large direct trade between
the West and, Europe,, by the new line of
steamers from Baltimore, at whose wharf
tar road' will deliver and reeeive freight,
saving' the high charge and long delays
of thr port ef New 'York.' ;'" , '"-
1 This direct import trade will be further
facilitated by1 the measure now before
Congress to permit imported goods to be
shipped '. direct 'to the great eitlee of the
West., By this, and the, saving of port
charges, goods can be placed In .the store
of the 'importer1 of Cincinnati at as low
price A in New . York., Among (he west
ern conneolious, whish this,' gnat route
will reach out to, ,thcr is eine which has
great possibilities at a small allay, by
the .completion of the MartinMille road,
fonneoling the Cincinnati IJianapolis
road with Vinoennes and. Cairo, .and
taking La another great route to the His.

Hon: -In the fall of i860, the ladie. of

me rresbyterlau eongregation thought it
ndvisabl. to do something toward r:
pairing th Church in mch way at would

getting thing that th gentlemen perhaps
would deem unnecessary, and be nnwill
in f t pay for, -by th Usual method Of
subscription. After deoiding against a
eewing sooiety.'U was proposed by Mr.
Hewitt; that, a thew , succeeded well in
Logan with a "Mil Sootety,'' w should
try th same iere.-' Thi wa flnUly
egreed apon, ' Cone'eauently" there wa

Mr. French, Mrs. MoBeth, Mrs. Bingham
Mrs. Wolf, and myself: Mrs. Harris was
oalled to the chair. After some discus
sion, it was determined to have but one
offioer-a Tressurer-whose duty it should
be to preside at all meetibgs 'and 'taki
charge of the fund. coUecU'Ma,
D. Dodge was selected to fill, that office.-
The eubjeot of membership wa taken up
and after a good deal of discussion it
was deoided that instead of paying a fee
of fifty cents, as was first proposed, that
,ny lady having a meeting of th Sooiety
at her house would be considered a n.inv
ber, . II was ths express understanding at
the time, and hag ever been since, thai
the money colleoted wa to be used for the
benefit of the Church, It wa to be used
only in tuch manner a the ladie them,
selve ahould designate. Th enbjact of
refreshments came np, and It was decided
that Ihe lady (jiving the meeting should
be the judge as to What should be furl
nlshed. ' This, however, ' after , a pretty
thorough trial was found to be rather ex,
pensive, and it wa determined at a sub:
sequent, meeting to restrict it to oa onp
of ooffee and one1 piece of oake to each
person.' The meetings of (he Society were
all held in towa until the. summer of
1862; when it was appointed at Ur. Sheri
wood' the first .meeting held in the
country. , It then met in .regular orden.
every two weeks, at Messrs. Dillon', Mil
ler', Aikin', Hay', and Lyons'. . Th
next meeting was In town,. a were all
those Md tA 'the'; winter of 1862 03, t't
a meeting held t Dr.'.Wolf'Maroii;
1863 Mr. Dodge resigned her position s
Treasurr, pn acoount of il) health, and
Mrs. Wolf was appointed to fill her plaoe.
Up to this time there tad, been eighty
seven dollar reeelved and eighty-nine
dollar expended, leaving th. Society in
debt, At a meeting at Mr. Mahala
Brown', February 5, 1868, at which a
majority of th member were present for
th purpose of eettling the finances of
the Society, it was found that from the
tlm of Mr. , Wolfs. aocepUnce of the
Treasnrership, up to Oot; 10, 186T, the
last regular meeting, the receipts from all
source amounted to $350 21 j! expendi
tures,: $318.21, leaving a balance of $40,
which, was loaned to , Mr. Sherwood by
the Treasurer, and yet remain in his
hands.. Th accounts of Mrs. Wolf were
coepted and approved,' and the ladiee
present united in indorsing and luataia
ing her in declining to settle with any
ether than th Booiety'of whioh she was
anoffloerv-; Their right lo settle thoir'own
affair has never been questioned aatil
very recently, and they do not- new feel
disposed ie submit to any interfereno.
