Proceedings of the Mass Meeting
of the Friends of the Southwestern
R. R.
Pursuant to noticc.a mcetinrr of tbe
citizens of Morgan county, to aid in
the completion of tho Southwestern
llailroad, was held In tho Town Hall
of M'Connelsville. . , .
The nicotine was organized at 1 P.
M., by calling Col. J. Ployd,. of Meigs
villo township, to the chair, and elec
ting Dr. J. II. Brown Vice President.
Pr. W. B. HcdgcB, and C. L. Barker
KsO. .Secretaries.
The meetinir was addressed bv T.W.
Peacock, President of tho company,
His statements wero very satisfactory.
No reports that since tho last meeting,
efforts hud been made to seenro sulll
cicht funds to complete tho road, and
that : north of Cumberland about
thfco hundred arid fifty thousand dol
lars had been pledged. ' lie stated that
to complete tho road to M'Connelsville
and Malta, including the construction
of the bridge, an additional local sub
scription of two hundred and fifty
thousand dollars was necessary, and if
tins was pledger! the Hoard could im
mediately put tho road under contract.
An opportunity was then given for re
marks. i.oi. JlHwkins was called
upon, and in reMonso ho gave it as his
opinion, while he had friendly foclinjr
for tho Railroad, that the interests of
thocommunity would be better subserve
by permanently establishing the Mus
kingum improvement. Tho Rev. J.
W. lfenly then delivered and address,
in wliicli ho stated tho atU antages.tO
bo obtafhed by completing tho Railroad
and clearly demonstrated tho loss that
this community would sustain if this
last opportunity was sultcred to co by
default. At the conclusion of his ro-
marks he ofl'ercd tho following resolu
tion, which was unanimously passed
without debute;
Jlesolvcd. That this meeting heartly
approvo tho proposed plans for tomplo
ting tho Southwestern Railroad, and
wo hereby pledgo our influanco and
active co-operation in raising the
required two hundred and fifty thous
and dollars.
Mr. Muzzy, of Cumberland, who was
the "first subscriber ofstock in tho Rail
road, made an address of n very cner
getio character, in which he ulILriucd
his conhdeneo in the project, as not
only n feasible, but n paying
ono. IIo drew a vivid contrast
between Railroad towns, which ho had
recently visited, nnd our beautiful.
though quiet placo, where it seemed as
if it wero always Sunday. His remarks
elicited frequent mid hearty,' applause
Rev. lfenly offered a resolution, which
carried unanimously, that a coinmitteo
of seven bo appointed to co-operate
with tho Direc tors, iu taking tho neces
sary steps in raising the required funds.
At this juncture Mr. C. L, Barker
requested Mr. Peacock to state what
assurances tho Board could otl'erto sat
isfy tlio public of the completion of tho
onterpriso. - lit. Peacock responded
that thero wero parties ready to take
the contract as soon as tho fun Js were
raised, but to fully assure any doubting
minus, tno su user i Dors could retain tho
books until they were satisfied, through
a committee of their own scloction,
that tho road would bo completed.
A committee consisting of Messrs
Wnt. Sherwood, A. Alderman and Al
fred Wilkin was nppoinod, to nominato
tho committeo of seven. Thecomiuitteo

one knew what tho words wero; as no
harm was suspected, but little attention?
was paid to Delong's movements.
Suddenly tho sharp crack of tho rifle
and tho death shirck of Miss Shaefl'cr
startled tho whole company. Delong
was soon to take deliberate aim. Tho
unfortunato young lady foil and expir

out at th6 back part of tho head.
Delong then, apparently not tho
least excited at what had happened,
deliberately replaced tho gun where
ho had taken it from, saying in an in
diiferent manner that the shot was
fired accidentally, lie was at once ar
rested, and is now confined in the jail
of the county, where ho awaits a full
investigation of his singular conduct.

Tho New York Independent, leading

ere' Convention" lu Philadelphia, "which,"
Mr. Orculcy tajt, "will make ne objection
to ins color. lie adds: " 1 he Union party
ispeiluctly willing nay, anxious that the
Injul colored meu should have a voice iu its

and the lalo o( the onion of oolors io their

SHtency to principle equally at honest. That
would be party houest. and it would hou

The Reception of the President
in Philadelphia.
Tbo attempt of ths Republican loaders in
Philadelphia, working in tho Corn Exchange
and in the City Council to defoat a public rt-
crptioA of the President in that city, aroused
the Indignatloo of tbe mfttces. Tbe Fie!a.

paper, thut speaks of tbe way the President
was received, dispito tint example of dirty
partisanship. It says:
; I'lt require no editorial comment to rcln
forco the ttrcngth and characlcr ol that dem
onstration. At to impromptu popular
movement, with scarcely any previous no
ties, and Willi very tew of tbe usual meant
adopted to call large bodies of the people oat
it wat almost, If not quite without a parallel
io Philadelphia, for our people are;'not nut
urally demormtrativo fn their temper." In the
noigborhood of the Baltimore depot, and all
along Rrosd street and Chestnut street, the
crowd was great and dense, and the reception
very hearty and enthusiastic; but those who
only taw what occurred oo the ronte ol tke
procession can from no idea of either the

entire body in front ofithe Contieotal Hotel
From the vicinity ot Klghth ttreet, up Chest

Bishop Soule.
Tho Christian Advocato for last week
has an interesting account of A recont
visit to Uishop Soulo. at his residence,
seven miles east of Nashville:
"On "Wednesday last tho Bishop was
eighty-fivo years of ago, having boon
born in tho State of Massachusetts, in
tho District, now tho State, of Maine,
August 1, 1781. Thoagod minister of
the Gospel received his visitors witli
his accustomed courtesy and cordiality,
seeming to be much pleased that bis
birthday had boon remomberod, He is
very fooblo, but cheerful and kind and
oommunieativo, a lino spocimon of
"narrative old ago," without tho boring
garrulity which so frecqucntiy charac
terizes socond childhood. His memory
of things long since pussod is surpris
ingly accurate. In tho courso of tho
conversation he quoted, ad punctum,
long passages from Addison'B Coto and
Pope s Homer, ever a great favorite
with him. Ho called up many remin
iscences of his early ministry, and
spoko of his old cotomporaries, who
have all passod off tho stage of action,
leaving hira, as it waro, alone, tho oldest
Methodist minister in tho world."
