THE PLANK ROAD. MEETING,

person or by proxy, and 40 shares ol lhe unrepre

Sc th:ut only 8 shares held in

meeting. Besides the unconditional subscriptions
present, several gentlemen were hero representing
the conditional subscribers at Little River Facto-

Letters were read from Governor Matilvx-
pressing a deep inte: est in the success of this
work, and slating that the notice given to him was
too short to allow of a meeting of the Board of
Internal Improvements, to attend in person or by
proxy. . . ' .
The Company proceeded to the election of offi

We. heartily congratulate the Company on their
success in securing o respectable and competent
a Board for the management of its affairs. Every

involved will be faithfully and ably controlled, As
an evidence of their standing among their fellow
citizens, we may mention, that with every citizen
in town lo sek'ct from, and among very many
gentlemen -voted for, tho whole nine Directors
were elected on the first ballot. The only thing

whole offices of the United State were monopo
