To the Honorable the Judes of the Court

The undersigned Grand Inquest of the
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, inquiring,
for the body ot the County of Columbia,
That they have, pursucnt to
their required duty, calmly, and deliberate
ly, investigated all bills ol Indictment pre
sented for their consideration at this term,
and have passed upon litem accordingly
They have also made a thorough examina
tion of the Court House, Jail, and all other
Public Buildings and find them generally in
And they also report, that they find a
large quantity ol publio paper in the Pro
thonotary office in an exposed condition, we
therefore recommend their immediate remo
val to tke fire Prool where there is sufficient
shelving put tip for their recepiien.
And they also further report, that it has
been staled to this Inquest, that the road
leading Iroin Bloomsburg to Berwick, in ihe
township of Centre, is in several places in
bad repair. Also, a publio road leading
from Aaron Kelchner's Smilh shop through
lands ol Gilbert Fowler, Paul Zaner, Wil
liam Hoffman and Andrew Frees to the Ger
man Churoh in Biiarcreek township, needs
immediate repairing, also aTownship Bridge
over the Canal on a public road leading
from Cenlreville in Centra township, to
Brown's Mill in Mtfflin township unsafe
and dangerous to oass, we therefore call the
attention of Ihe Supervisor of the above
township, to ihe same, and request them to
make the necessary repairs.
The Grand Jury further state that informa
tion has been laid before them, that the
road leading from Lime Ridge to the river
road in Cemre township is so out of repair
as to be almost impassable.
And they would also further report, that
they have been informed by respectable

to the neighbots and other* upon the Sab
bath day, thereby collecting noisy and disor

annoyance of all qniel and peaoeable citi
zens of the town and vioinage, we therefore
humbly beseech, tbent in particular, and ell
other good eitizens of Columbia county, to
obey tbe laws ol the land, and see that they
are faithfully exeeuled, for it is the corner
stone upon which the superstructure of ours,
the most noble institutions for Ihe govern

no doubt will continue to rest, if we only
