TheUnion- Emigration Soci
ety met at. Portland, Feb.-1st,
1871, and elected A S. Combs
Pres't, B. F.. Thomas, Sec'y,
and "Wm. Powell,. Treas. to
hold their offices only until the
Colony arrives at the lands ap
proved by a majority of the
members present." The meet
ing was very earnest and har
monious, and selected Southern
Middle Kansas, with privilege
to. vary if. we can bettt-r our
selves. The Colony agreed to
start on the first .Monday in
March. If 10 or more fami
lies apply( cars will be 'sent to
any station on the M. & C. R.
R. Those who go by river
will meet us at Cincinnati on
Tuesday and;' when' they have
loaded we will start for Kan
sas and probably arrive at our
destination on Thursday. The
time for subscribing was ex
tended to Feb. 25, and still lim
ited to four ; lots or less. The
Trustees agreed to meet at
Portland" on the 21th, when
final estimates must be sent in.
We want to know bow many
cars to order and at what sta
tion to load. "We 6hall start
at. the appointed time if not
more than 10 families are
. Those wishing to take horses
or cattle should make applica
tion immediatelv. Arrange
menta have been made with
tho 11. R. Co. to take members

sequent time that 10 or more

eept for extra baggage, horses
and catth; these are rated by
car load and not by the pound.
The agent says we nay load a
enr with what we please and
all we can get on. The Colo
nists are advised to take cook
ed provision for 4 or 5 days;
iilo drinking cups; hot coffee
will be furnished twice a day
on the route from Cincinnati.
Take all the small heavy arti
cles you have and expect to
need when you get there, axes,
mattocks, good wagon or plow
gears, spades, hoes, &c. Knives
and forks, and crockery, can
be safely packed in the bedding
and not increase the bulk, pack
everything in boxes as compact
as possible. Hulk is costlier than
weight. The freight is trifling
and it will be better to take
what you have that you will
need, than to sell at a sacrifice
and buy again. We have now
147 heads of families subscrib
ed, and 75 have paid their fee
($5 00) and have received
their certificates of member
ship which entitles them to
one town lot each. Probably
some will fail to go but others,
two to one, will take their pla
ces. It is absolutely necessary
to start at the appointed time.
Our members are scattered
over thirteen of the border
counties of Ohio, Ky., and W.
Ya., and ve cannot in justice
keep one half Oil expense and
waiting for the olher half. We
shall start at the appointed
time Providence permitting.
