Tho Ebensburg Democrat says: "Several of the most influential and wealthy citizens of that place intend visiting Philadelphia shortly, for the purpose of calling on tho president of the company, and ascertaining what arrangements can be made: Tho project is by no means a visionary one. If the matter is once taken in hand in earnest, from fifty to seventy thousand dollars in stock will bo taken in this place and vicinity. Tho road, if constructed, will pay as well, if not better than tho Indiana branch, and will not be so oxponsivo to construct."
