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
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.
