Bridge Meeting in Uarpors-Kerry.
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. V. \ intis, E.-q , the
Mayor of the town, said, that he had called the
meeting iu comp cnee with a numerously
signed request, winch he read.
•• Draii Si:;:—Asyouareaware.au Injuuc- :
tiou has been granted by the County Court,
enj.duing the Bridge company from proceeding
with the construction of the bridge across the
Shenaudoah river. We need not inform you ,
of how imp irtant to the interests and wel ire
ot liiis town. this bridge is, and therefore, id
how injurious to tin >e inft-rts s and to that
welfare any obstruction iu tue way of itscrec- ;
lion must necessarily be.
We, therefore, citixer* of the town and |
neighbor!) beg leave, most respectfully to i
ft quest, tii it you, as chief tflici r ot the town, ,
call a meeting of the friends of the important
internal improvement now attacked, that pub
lic opinion on the subject may be given ix
pressieu to. We are assured, on the opinion
of disinterested persons competent to judge,,
that the Fij'iuct on ab >ve referred t > was tin- 1
wisely granted, and will in all probability, be
Unsolved. Iu the meantime, there is a very

Mr. c niles Davies, then proposed the fol
lowing re>- ’utions:
\\ „i A Bridge acr" s the Shenan
doah river at Harp' r > Ferry would be of ini- j
i: . - l U alit.l-C. I: t olilv to t he town, but to
the surroun liog country, nuJ the want of such
a mode of crossing the river, for years (wist, has
been deeply detrimental to the interests of
both ;
11 hfi as— At present, and since there was
a bridge a r ss the river—when the water is
! w, «• 1 w .ien it is frozen, aud very often in
ti.e nigi.t time—it is impossible to cross the
river—the Ferry being useless. And so, the
large nuns her of prsuis—in L >udouu for in
stance—who formerly transacted business in
the Ferry, can do su now !)•> more, and the
tu'iuess interests of the town have been almost
destroyed. In addition to this, great personal
inc liVtr iotice is often expelienced, as for in
stance, w:,cn the sick have instant need of a
physician ;
It In:' ja—The Bridge Company of Harper's
Ferry— clothed with the authority of law—
have commenced the erection of such a Bridge,
but are now impeded, or are about to be im
peded, by an Injunction—an Injunction that
h- wever iraprevMcntly and unwisely granted,
w i.l bo an impediment—hew ever biief—to the
progress aud completion o. the enterprise;
/.'t /, That we warmly sympathise with !
the Bridge Company in its elTorts-to build a :
Bridge a.ross tho Siicnaudnati river; that we ,
- ,i i stand by it. and mini it to the fullest ex
tent of our ability. And furtlier, we hereby
pron '-*• to bear a liberal pvrt of the expense
of the litigation now pending ;
AV-. ,■•.(/, iHat, trusting to the spirit of the
age, that each day is becoming more libiral
and enlarged ; trusting to the growing dislike
of nioBop dies, and the grow ing determination |
of the p pie to suppress them ; and trusting |
to the Law, r|,at is never so vv irthy of respect
is when it is »v re st’d for the purp -e > t ad
varx i g • • public interests— whilt we pity
the sh* t-siglitedniss ti.at cannot discern, in
these tilings, the signs of the times,— we de
nounce tne nurrow-n.mded selfishness that—
regardless of the public Mite -is—seems anx
ious only to enr’Cli itself at the | ublic t xpense,
aud rise, on the ruins of an in poverishtd com
munity ;
liesoleed. That we have the fullest cot.fi
dcuce in ti,c fair adiuiidstrati n of live law—
the fulii.it asau: iince— based on the opinions j
of those versed in the law. and experienced in [
irs interpretati' n. practice and application, j
that notwithstanding li*o m tnent.try impedi- I

A few days -incc July 30th, Jas. D. 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’. S.—be
longs to Mr. J. M. Mason the whole proceed
ing is most extraordinary, and requires, w-e
think, a further investigation.
