INDUS VALLEY RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 12 June 1875

INDUS ;VALLEY. RAILWAY. The Scindian, a paper published in Kurrachee, states that the Indus Valley State Railway has for the present been susperided, the works, between Moultan and Sukkur having been stopped from the Government having withheld the funds. The Indus Valley line is a railway, proposing to connect the Scinde railway, which extends from Kurrachee to Kotree one the Indus, with the Punjaub railway, which extends from Moultan to Lahore. Neither the   Scinde nor Punjaub line pays, and the proposed Indus Valley line, which would be nearly five hundred miles long, offers very small prospect of being profitable. The Indian Government, no doubt, thinks that it will be wise to postpone a measure of such slender promise until works of more pressing exigency' have been carried out. The work most needed in the valley of the Indus is not a railway, but a compre- hensive scheme of irrigation. The Schinde railway should have been a canal, as it was at first proposed that t...

Messrs Templeton, P.M. Kneen, manuf's, and T. Kidney, J.Ps., granted, on Thursday a transfer of the "Leicester Arms," Leicester- street, Fitzroy, from Mrs. Morrow, to Jane Gordon. The Merri creok was so much swollen by food-waters, on Tuesday last, through' the recent excessive rainfalls, that a portion of the scaffolding at the new bridge, now in process of erection by Messrs.

These s cannot be too attentively regarded and r scrutinized in every point of view, as t they constitute the most undeniable o witness to the modern world of the a faith in Jesus Christ-that is to say, - within the scope of hi torical and f literary testimonies.
