Fire. Tho Portland Mills wero en
tirely consumed by fire on Sunday even,
ing 25th inst. It appear that a fire
had been built under the boilers for the
purpose of thawing them out, so as to
be iu order to run the mill the next day.
By some means the fire was communica
ted to tho wooden structure ot the mill, 1
and when discovered, the progress of the I
accordina; to their mode of thinking, it
I will pay. It will enhance the price of
j property, and increase the population
, and tho business of the place. The j
erection of every good building tends to 1
advance the value of property. For
instance, such a building as the resi
j donee of Albert Willis. Esq., in a small
! place like Ridgway, virtually adds to the
! value of every other house in the town.
! How much more is this the case, where
! to the architectural beauties of the
j building are added what is far more im.
j portant the elevating influences of the
church. Ridgway is unrival'ed tor the
purity of its atmosphere and its water.
Situated in the midst of the Alleghenies,
we breathe the invigorating air of the
i mountains, while almost every house iu
town is supplied with water from run
' ninii fmntains. With these natural ad
vantages in our fivor and the rapidly
increasing development and population
ot tho coal regions of the county, and
the influx of wealth invited hither by
the richness of our material resources,
j what is there to prevent Ridtrway from
becoming the social and business centre
of the county. Alas, that truth com
pels us to confess it, there has been.
there is, but one cau e, we have no
church. What man who loved his
fani'ly would dare, what mother would
' consent, to move to a town, abounding
with all tho snares that entrap the feet
of youth, without the moral influences
that counteract them. Again, give us
a church and there is no reason, why
Ridirway, for which Nature has done so ,
much, should not be a favorite summer '
resort, for the wealthier denizens of tho
cities, who yearly leave the sultry con.
fines of brick walls, and seek new life j
and vigor in the recreations aud cooler '
climate of the mountains. Our woods j
abound with game. Our streams are
full of trout. We arc upon the line of:
the Philadelphia & Erie Railroad. But j
men will go where they can take their
families, and we have no church. This
i the reproach upon our fa'rninne which
deprives ns of this source of pleasureand
prufit. But these considerations impor
tant as they are, sink into insignificance
in comparison with the moral benefits to
be derived from a church well sustained
and well attended. Wo feel confident
that if wo have a proper place for reli-
gious service, it would be well suppor
ted. Upon the risinsr generation the
good influences of the change from a
sabbath-breaking to a church going peo
ple, could not but be salutary. We
hope our people will view this matter
favorably. We are informed that con
siderable aid has been promised from
abroad, when we shall take the initiative.
We are glad to hear it. and it is but
proper that we should do something
ourselves before we ask other s tor assistance.
We understand that the site selected
for the church is upon the corner lot of
