State Notes

  • A miner fell down the Shields mine at Beatyestown, Warren county [sic], one day last week, a distance of thirty feet, dislocating his shoulder.
  • The Elizabeth Journal is assured on good authority, that the Central is earning money, and that the dividend is only deferred to the six months term.
  • Cape May County jail is without a tenant, and has been so since the unceremonious departure of Facemire and Garrison.
  • The liabilities of Day & Scott, the Paterson silk manufacturers who failed recently, are now believed to amount to not less than $225,000.
  • The strikers at the Trestle Works continue to stand out for the twenty-five cents additional pay, making their wage $2 a day. Nothing is doing at the work. The strikers are preventing others from going to work.
  • Mercer County's proportion of the State tax, at the rate of one half mill on the dollar, the sum named in the bill passed at the last session of the Legislature, will be $50,397.
  • The Trenton American says: "From what we hear, it is likely that advantage will be taken of the General Railroad law by numerous companies, for spur roads, and thus parts of the State be opened up for improvement, which, hitherto, in consequence of lack of railroad accommodation, have not progressed so rapidly as the inhabitants desired."
