"The Greenville News" of a recent
date says: "Some citizens of Edge
field village are beginning to protest
vigorously against paying the tax for
the Carolina Cumberland Gap and Chi
cago Railroad, and declaring their be
lief that it will never be built." This
we believe to be an unwise step. Our
friends of Edgefield should. remember
that "Rome was not built in a day,"
and furthermore oftentimes an enor
mous amount of brain work, combined
with a like quantity of muscular force
are employed.in order to bring about a
certain result. Comparatively speak
ing, this is a new enterprise, and one
of mo'small consequence. It should be
nurtured in the heart of every sound
thinking man, whose interests it may
likely affect. Day and night they should
lend their efforts to an enterprise,one of
the grandest that South Carolina ever
put on foot and which we are proud to
say has for its birth-place the ever pro
gressing County of Pickens. All honor
to the noble few in whose hearts this
grand enterprise was sprung, and
in whose hands it has received so
much fostering care. Time, Talent
and Money have all been employed
for the accomplishment of this prodig
ious end. Energy, either mental or
physical, is bound to be conserved, and
one day yet, perhaps not in the distant
future, we will see it transformed into
the most magnificent results that our
beloved old State could well wish for.
Friends of Edgefleld, "grow not weary
of well doing;'' fy not off' at a tan
gent, but keep abreast with the people
of Pickens, Anderson and Aiken in
their march after increasling prosperity.
Pay your taxes, large or small, so that
you, or your childlren after you, may be
enabled to enjoy the rich fruits which a
safe investment of your money brings.
Now one word to the citizens of our
o)wn County. On the 15th of the pres
enit month there is to be a meeting of
the Directors of the Roadl at Aiken.
Before that board some of our inftluen
tial men have already appearedl. TJhe
wants of the people have been imade
known to them. But, notwithstand
ing this, a further impressive knowl
edge of our wants shIould be given
them. Our neighboring city is likely
going to make another diesp.erate efkbrt
to secure the deflection of the Road.
Should we sit here idle, with arms fold
ed, and see the defiction mnade after so
mnuch has been done and said about it?
%After' all, shafll we become) an) insignill
t'ant wayside s tatlion, Or occuply, per.
hlaps, the positioum of a mere jiunction),
ai fler this County was thle first to initiate
lhe nhovenment of this grand Railroad
schenme ? Cannot Pickens assumei a
loftier spirit of indlependlence? ILet
not cournge fail us in the hour of ex
i reme anxiety ! March holdlly to the
front, and standl fortifiedl against the
army who are so str'ongly contending
