We are authorized to state
that the subscriptions to grade,
do- the masonry, bridging and
everything necessary to pre
pare the bed of this road for
the cross-ties, is steadily pro
gressing, there having already
been 11 miles, subscribed for,
and negotiations pending for
full ten miles more, generally
to be paid for half in cash, in
monthly instalments as the
worK progresses, ana tne re
maining half to be paid in the
stock of the Company. As the
enterprise now looks, if all par
ties that are able would
promptly add liberally to their
subscriptions, it would lie but
a short time until the Compa
ny would be ready to com
mence work on that part of
the road that lies between Gal
lipolis and the Marietta R It.,
and it is to be hoped that the
citizens of Vinton and Hock
ing Counties will not suffer
the small amount required to
be provided at their end of the
line to lag behind and thus de
lay the whole work.
, . Let us build, own and con
trol this road, and we venture
the assertion that we will have
the best dividend paying road,
for its length,' in the State, and
the immediate result of corn
plating it will be the attracting
population and capital, and the
erection ot all kinds ot manu
factories in our town, and at

route from here to Logan,
There is Jnow correspondence
going on between parties in
CirclevilIc, Ohio aud our city,
in regard to building a railroad j
from Urbana, Ohio, via. Lon
don aud Circleville, to connect
with our road at or near Mc
Arthur. This road would
open us a direct Northwestern
route for our coal, 'irou, lime,
and- manufactures, as, at Ur
bana, we would have railroad
connections in eveiy direction,
and it would bring us the agri
cultural products on its route,
which will be needed to . sup
ply the thousands of miners,
traders and manufacturers that
will soon be on or near the line
of our i-oad when finished.
Strain a point, increase your
subscriptions, build the road
show your neighboring coun
ties that Gallia is not dead,
and you will soon find other
points seeking connection with
our road, for the route has mer
it enough, including the favor
able location of our city and
other points on the route, to
attract other roads and popula
tion and capital.
Another Mormon Bishop has
been arrested on a charge ot
being accessory to a murder
committed more than a year
ago. If the secret history of
Mormonism should be revealed,
it would be found we imagine,
that scores of the dignitaries of
the Church have been guilty of
acts ot blood.
It is Democratic to obey the
laws, even if .Ave do not like
them. If we believe them to
be unconstitutional, we con

Those Democrats who stayed
away from the polls on account
of the "new departure" aud

good deal like children who
absent themselves from their

of a year or eo more they will
get entirely cured of their stub

that of Grant's, and nothing i

We hear the universal testi

The Epsy theory, we think
it is, that continued and wide
spread fires will bring on rain,
seems to be entirely exploded
in this instance. These fires
had lasted nearly or quite four
weeks, ravaging forests over a
great area, And still not a drop
of rain. The rain only came
with a change of wind to the
northward, and several days
after the worst burnings were
