   Anderson Herald (Newspaper) - May 27, 1870, Anderson, Indiana                                 [rrrak th« iBdiaM Joara«! ét boiÉiÉei««.]  rrom Âi4erMB,Iidluuh  AHDERSON, May 18,1870.  Mb. Editok:—Indians is noted &r and wide for her enterprising udbeanUfol cities, towns uid ▼illages; prominent stiiids Anderson, the capital of Madison . oonnty, situated thirty-six miles __ .  from the Sute capital, At the VOL 2 crossing of the Bellefontaine and Cincinnati It Chicago railroads The place h4g Within the last few years grown with extraordinary rapidity. This is due to its citi-sens, who are tden of sterling wealth and integrity, and eVihce a spirit of enterprise net surpassed ^ those of any other conn ty seat in tho State.  The dwelling and bnsines^ houses of the city ar^e built on the most approved stvie. Manv large and handsome bdsiness blocks have been erectcd during thb past two vears that would do credit to the Uoosier capital itself; Private dwellings, built with most excellent taste and adorned with the latest improvements in buildings and surrounding, Are nu merous- Many handsome business house and residences are now under construction and will be completed this summer. Manufactories of different kiiids are also under contract for building, and others under contemplation; men of capital are investing their wealth in the improvement of their beautiful and prosperous city; strangers at a distance having observed the facilities here for water power for roanucturing purposes, its agricultural resources, and the enterprise of its citizens, arc seeking for investments—and thus it is that this human hive of industry is outstripping all its -neighboring county seats The taaterial for continued prosperity is in their midst, and its citizens, mkh commendable energy, use and apply it—instead of sending their wealth off to assist foreign enterprise« they invest it at home among themselves, in erecting fine ljuildings, private residences, >2»»trQpolitan business houses and 'extensive manufactories.  Among the leading spirits of »the city who are actively eagaged in commcrcial and maaafaeturinp: pursuits we take pleasure is nen tioning the following:  The Anderson Hejiald, "Red Hot and still heating," edited by onr genial friend /yhn O. llard-•esty, is still watiug up tilings in its firy way and prospering im «ensely, T4ie Heralo has a fine •office and is one of the ^'institutions" of the city.  The riaindealer, which "every-i)ody reads," also has a fiae office and ¿s flourisliifig. It is Dew Hjcrati-c in ixslitics, and is ably conde<Ked ^y G. I), Farrar, ho wields the editorial tripod with 'ease and aulity.  Tho New York Store, owned ^nd conducted by Lee M. Trees, is one of the main institutions oi Anderson. The building is four ■Ktories high, built with the most modern improvements and pres-■ents a metropolitan appearance. Mr. Trees is a gentleman familiar with the wants of,the people t)f Anderson, and there is nothing; icept on the counters|of our larg -«it/ store.s but can be found at ihe New York Store. From ?30, OOO to 540,000 worth of all kinds ^oods embrace the slock.  The city of Anderson is in-•debtcd to her enterprising citizen the Hon. Thos. K. fc'lilweli,whose enterprise adorns the city, by the erection of many fine business blocks and private residence.s. riie recent eaterprise of Mr. Stil-"well was to build a fine five story building fer tlie purpose of a first class hotel. On the ground floor we noticed one of the finest arranged banking houses it has been our pleasure to see in the State of Indiana. This building will s'jon be finished throughout end will4)robaDly be as convient-ly arranged as any hotel in the State.  Wright k Armstrong, manufacturers of doors^ sash, blinds, door frames, etc.^ have a fine shop on North Meridian street, and are doing a thriving business. They not only furnish material but build houses in fine style, and many of the buildings abound Anderson will attest the euper-ioriW of their work.  F. Pence k Co., on Kortl Main street, are also engaged in the manufacture of sash, blinds, doors, etc., immense quantities of which they are turning out and selling at low figures. Though but recently established, this enterprising firm already has a flourishing trade which is rapidly growing. ,  B. F. Alford is extensively engaged in the sale of all kinds of carriages, wagons, reapers, mowers and farm machinery. -He is agent for the Champion. Excel-Bior, Buckeye, Kirby and other machines, and is disposing of a great many of them.  The Anderson Foundry and Machine Shop of Reiser a Johnson turns out good W9rk for saw and grist mills, and repairs engines, boilers and machinery of all kiftda. This is an active, energetic and lire firm, who under stand how to push business.  Anderson, Chittenden k Co., are engaged extensively in the  manufacture of hubs, felloes, etc.  and their esUblishment is one o the most importent in the city — They atso have a planing mill and do all kinds of planing and sawing to order.  M. Atherton,lumber dealer, has ft lumber yard near the Chicago k Great Eastern depot, on Meridian street, and is doing a fincim . trade in that line. He deals in  THE  Jhb  JilNB, JH» ^HIPS j'^ALt JfHBI^ JltST ^Ifcfc.  à  Si^e XAGUNESI  ANDEBSON, MADISON CO., INDIANA; FRIDAY MOfiNING; MAY 27, 1870;  mìe  SO. 48.  . it^adkion k Hollbway are manu-fàcturers of and dealers in American and foreign marble8,and they turn out some verv handsome work. Thev also have a fine trade in building stone of various kinds. , .  Drs. Clark k Bu'Shong may be mentioned among the professional part df the community ' as new dtîtltal firm who are np to their business^ and deserves the popularity they have already attained.  Among other business houses we notice the following :  É. J. Waldenj general dealer and commission nlerchant ; Tem pleton, Raber a Co;, furniture ménùfactnrers ; Wnl. Conrad^ furnitnre dealer and manufacturer; Jas< Quinn, carriage man-ufiwstarer ; H.'II; CdniHidA Ji Batterai, wagon manfacturers ; M. Dodd & Co.. confectioners ; E. C.

Nichol, dealer in hardware, iron, steel and agricultural implements; and the Ross House which keep6 a good table and pleasant rooms, add has a courteous landlord in the person of Geo. R. Griffith, its proprietor.  We were much pleased with Anderson and its people, and think it gives promise of continuing to be what it is now—a '-prospering city. As an item indicative of the extent oi its trade, we note that 11,870,626 pounds were shipped from this point over the C. C. C. k I. R. R. in the year 1869. J. R. M.

Editor—The town Of Pendleton is situated on the C. C; C; A I. rail-road,^(Bellefojitaine) 28 miles northeast of Indianapolis, in Madisott bbutity. The town is delightfully located, with well improved streets, and surrounded by a lovely country, and contains population of About 1,600, Its location on the line of the old Bee Line Railway, one of the greatest^ commercial thorouglnfares of the^ West, is an advantage that can? hot be overlooked by those who wish to settle dovn in a pUasant and healrhy ^ot^Oni it is already a shipping point of considerable importance, aS will be seen from the following figures exhibiting the receipts and. shipments for the y^ar 186^. {"reight received, 2,616,379 lbs; freight forwarded', 16,244)452 lbs; and I am ihfoi^med by the grain dealers here that between the loth of July and the 1st of Mariihj 1869; there was shipped from tliis point between 105,000 and 115,000 bushels df wheat) a greater amount than was forwarded by ahy other point oil the line between Indianapolis and Union City. The town is approached on evei^y side by excellent gravel roads ; in fact, these roads: some nine in number, diverge in every direciioii-, t)ene-tratiiig every pdrtion of the surrounding country. Through the kindness of Mrs Pilven a promi nent citiseh of the place, 1 had the pleasure of a drive around through the country immediately surrounding the town, and was all tonished to fiild such beautiful drive excellent macadamised roads and lovely country. Thesurroud-ing country tributary to Pendleton is noted for its productiveness, is in a high state of cultivation, and tilled by wealthy and intelligent farmers. The four adjoininr counties have organized a district ^rjcuhural society,and hold their Cnion fair at this point, and have one of the finest fair grounds in the State, beautifully located on an elevation overlooking the town. The place contains three churches and three religious organiz;)tons, Methodists, Baptists and Univer-salists, one large, commodious brick school house, one Masonic, one Odd Fellows and one Good Templar's Lodge, three flouring: mills, three saw mills, one woolen mill, three ware houses, two tile factories : also wafjon and furni-  "In my vest at  per.

The chief place of the manufacture ot" marbles," those little pieces of stohc which contribute so largely to the enjoyment, on the Nahe, in Germany, where there are large agate mills and quarries, the refuse which is turned to good paying account by being made into small balls emplov« ed by experts to ktiuckle with, which are mostly sent to the American niarkcti The substance used in Saxony is a hard calcereous stone, which is first broken into blocks nearly sauare by blows with a hammer. These are thrown by the one hundred or two hun<lred into a small sort of a mill, which is formed of a flat, stationary slab of stone, with a num ber of concentric furrows upon its face. A block of oak, or other hard wood, of the 3arae diamctric size, is placed over the stone and partly resting upon them.— The small block of wood is kept revolving while water flows upon the stone slab. In about fifteen minutes the stones are turned to spheres, and then being fit for gale, are henceforth called ' marbles." One establishment, containing only three of these mills  ture throughout—both goo l houses for a town of this size.  This point possesses great advantages and faciiies for manufacturing purposes, especially that of wood work, as the country abounds in excellent timber of every character» It also presents a good opening for a machine shop and foundry, and as large amounts of money are handled here annually, being paid out for gra n, stock and timber, I do not see why it would not be a good opening for a bank ; and last but not least, the placc abounds in good building stone» Two quarries are now being operated by the railroad company, and large quantities of etone are shipped daily for bridge and othei- purposes. The stone is of a good ciuality, and in inexhaustible quantity ; in fact, the whole town isunderlayed with stone, and when these quarries are properly developed it will add largely to the business of Pcndle ton, and give employment to hundreds. They also possess here a quarry of the celebrated sandstone for making glass ; it is also being operated by the railroad company, and 1 am informed that your city glass works are being supplied with sand from this point at the rate of fifteen tons per day. Specimens of this sand have been sent to Pittsburg and Philadelphia and examined and tried by parties experienced in the manufacturing of glass, and pronounced to be of excellcht qua ity.  I am under many obligations to C. A» Lukens, of the firm of Lukens & Bro., dry goods dealers, and Mr. Silver, of the firm of Silver A Morris, dry goods merchants, for their kind and courtoous attentions to me while visiting their town.; May they live long and prosper.

The record ol his blasted life is briefly thus:  At thirty years of age Theodore Clay was a promisiiig lalr-ver. He was the image and the hope of the statesiil&h v^ose fame was on every tongtte-. It is true that there were whispers of wild living, and of indifferent morals, that somel^hat tihgetl the fair repute and even darkened. the future pro&pects of thlft Bbioii tifa noble house; Still it was hopeful that these wer^ but the result of youth, isind would be cast aside when circumstances called upon the. matured man to assert him-.self and make his talent felt in the community;  U wits at this tdrnin^^point in lis lite that Theodore Clay began to pursue, with an unwearied lierseverance that caused his riehds greai uneasiness; a jroung ady of Lexington, whom he had long loved hopelessly. The object of his attachment, who is at the present moment one of the brightest ornaments of Kentucky society, repulsed, firmly but kind-"y, every attention of the infatuated young man, after hiS meaning had bectJme manifest. It was of no Use, he^ouldnotbe refused, and followed his fair f^te in the treels by day and wandered in the neighborhood of her home by night; ih an annoying manner, until at last ii bctame evident that he "was not all there," to use the sofl phrase by which a kindly peasantry express insanity; Subsequehl vlttleht demonstrations tiinded to confirm ihat the impression, it bcitig even t-e-lated he went to the house of Mr. -^=—aiid demanded his daughter at the piistol's point, until at last the wretched truth coufd no onger be ignored and confinement in the Asylum seemed a stren necessity.
