Hi- ruling is considered a virtual affirmation of the position of the State. The bridge was assessed separately from the company’- track, and the company -ought to enjoin the collection ot taxes, claiming that the bridges were part of the road, and assessed in the aggregate ot the company’s property in the State. The right to tax the Baltimore and Ohio’s bridge at lk nwood is also involved indirect ly in the ca.-e, a- well a- the -amc question concerning the Pan-Handle bridge at Steu benville.

The recent commencement exercises of the Fair Mount public school, east side of Shenandoah river near Johnston’s factory, was the grandest affair of the kind that ever took place at that point. Mr. Oliver M. Harris, the teacher, deserves great credit and praise for the interesting and delightful entertainment that was gotten up under bis supervision. From the handsome and ele gant manner that the scholars, one at’d all, acquitted themselves in their various roles, it was plain to be seen that the teacher had done a good work during the session and that “Forward and I'pward’ in their studies was their motto. Mr. Harris can look hack with pleasure and pride over the past ses sion at the grand work he has accomplished in advancing his scholars in their various studies. A delightful programme of some thirty pieces was well rendered before a large and appreciative audience. We cannot re frain from mentioning a few ol tiie dia logues and the persons who acted them so well: m. .. , T 1 _la'll_1 lilt? I>L*l, Uy iltttuu iujciartiiuvuauvo erlv ; Tough Boarding House, by Brooks Myers and Frank Mason; Wonderful Eggs, bv Frank Shepherd and David Byerly ; Old Heads on Young Shoulders, by Fannie Shepherd, Anna Clipp, Laura Clipp, Sadie Milton, Brooks Myers and Albert Cray. Dat Mosquito was rendered by Mbs Fannie Shepherd to perfection anti just took the house by storm. Suffice it to say that each and all did their parts well and too much praise cannot be said in their behalf. Ihe audience was perfectly charmed throughout. It is useless to attempt to de.-cribe the elegant dinner that was served by the ladies for it included everything nice and tempt ing to the appetite—-just the kind of dinner that the editor oi the Free 1‘ress would enjoy because he could maxc a good square meal and finish on delicious ice cream and cake. An editor’s limited capacity would have been overtaxed to have done justice to this princely feast. Daniel Hemebower, Esq., an official member of the board of ed ucation, was present and delivered an in structive and entertaining address. For one hour the enraptured audience listened to the “flow of the soul and least of reason.” Mr. 11. made many salient points in his ad dress, and it was interspersed with spark ling wit and humor throughout. His de scription of the modern dude as personated by so many young Americans of the present day, was side splitting in the extreme, and brought forth rout ds of applause. His re marks on parental authority and obedience to the rules of school were timely and well framed, and found a lodgment in the minds ot all lovers of good order. Mr. Harris has 5t> scholars and an average attendance of 25 per month. Handsome books were awarded as prizes to Miss Fannie Shepherd for proficiency in dictionary and Joel W. Clipp in spelling class. Mary E. Clipp, Sarah C. Clipp and Teter West received prizes for punctual at tendance, they not having missed a day dur ing the entire session. C'/wivlestown'« Ventennlal. Charlestown, June 2H, 1N8G. Dear Mr. Editor : A number of persons have asked me when our Centennial Celebration is to take place; supposing, doubtless, I was still a member of the Committee of arrangements. Will you kindly allow me the use of your columns to say that 1 found myself obliged several months ago to withdraw from that Committee, as it was plain I would he una ble to attend properly to duty as a member of it ? I hope we will certainly have an appro priate celebration. An Orator and a Toot have promised their services for the oeca- i sion. I am sure the mention of their names, Travers and Lucas, will be enough to con vince all that the intellectual part of the celebration is abundantly attended to. If, in addition, we have a procession of some kind in the day, ami some fire works at night, I think we will accomplish all that mav he necessary or proper and with out much expense. If the day were made a sort of public holiday it would be well. All the hells of the town could be rung at sunrise, at noon and at sunset, each being struck one hun dred times. If a cannon could be procured and a sa lute of one hundred guns be fired at noon, it would be appropriate. If the Masons, Odd Fellows and the oth er Orders, as well as our Fire Companies and other organizations ami citizens would unite in a procession, the effect would be good. If, in addition, some distinguished gen tlemen from our Mother State, the Old Do minion, would also make us an address, the day would be a grand one in our history.— Let me suggest the names of .Mr. Han Tuck er or Mr. John IV. Daniel. The day ought to be set soon. It our newspapers would give notice of it, I be lieve many of our scattered people who are found in many states would come and join in our celebration if they knew the day in time. I suggest some day in the last half of September. Respectfully yours. \Vm. P. Cbajghill.
