Notwithstanding the inclemency of the , weather on Monday evening, August the 4th, a very large meeting of the citizeusof Harper’s Ferry and the surrounding neighborhood was held to give expression to public opinion iu reference to the legal proceedings that ha\e beeu commenced for the purpose of enjoining the erection of a bridge across the Shenandoah river. The interest felt by the community in j the matter is very great; the enthusiasm and > earnestness that marked the proceedings of the meeting was quite observable—the various points made by the speakers beiug cheered to the echo. Ou t»k;n the chair, S.

Fore man and David his son — po r people who, with "tliers, live on the property of J. M Ma son, E»q . on the mountain, were arrested by a Deputy U. S. Marshal—hand-cuffed, and brought before H. H. Flick,E-q .Commission er at Martinsburg, to answer a charge made by one G. W. Graham, calling himself a Govern* nient Agent, for setting fire to the timber on the mountain. An examination of tho case showed that the prisoners were not only per fectly innocent, but were absent from the place at the time of ti:c fire, so they were promptly discharged. To what extent our citizens— however humble they may be—are to put up with such treatment is a question that is uow very much discussed here. Geo. W. Graham—referred to in above item —on complaint of Jas. I). Foreman—was ar rested here, on a warrant that had been in the hinds of the t fficcr for 7 or 8 days,— brought before 15 Avis, E.-q , and bound over to keep the peace. It seems—by the evidence—that Mr. Graham, claiming to be a Government Agent, accompanied by four or five men, or dered Foreman to leave his cottage—or hut; pulled down the hut and destroyed the man’s property, and when he left, said, that if he Foreman was not gone when he Graham came back, that he’d burn up his property, or what was left of it As the property—save the wood right which belongs to the l’.
