Report of the tirand Jury at February Term , 1855. fpO the honorable the Judges of the court A of qosrler sessions of the peace in and for the eouuty of Columbia. The undersigned Grand Inquest of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania inquiring for the body of the county of Columbia, Re spectfully Ktport. Thai they have pursuant to their required duties caltnlv and deliberately, investigated all bills of iruiietment presented for their con sideration at this term, and have passed up on them accordingly. They have also made a thorough examination of the Court house, Jail,and all other public buildings, and find them generally in good repair. It is within the knowledge of the Inquest that the public road leading along Fishing creek above Orangeville is much injured and obstructed by the creek at this present sea son. Bui in our judgment, the difficulty wiil be obviated whenever the bridge now in contemplation shall be built ovor Fishing -creek a short distance above where the road is now injured by the water. The violations of law in this community, are not mariy, nor are the few crimes of a high nature; It is a cause of congratulation that our labors can be short, and. that no se rious reproaches attach to our community. The condition of public morals we believe to be about OR good as the frailties of htt.nan nature allow to be expected—while the boun ties of Providence and the blessings ol free institutions still continue to fill our land. All of which is respectfully submitted this seventh dty of February A. D. 1856 JOHN B. EDGAR. Foreman. MADISON HOUSE, A'os. 57 and 39 North Second Street, (Below Arch Street.)
