Franklin Repository and Transcript, May 2, 1860, p. 5, c. 1


Not long since we gave an account of the manufacturing of a locomotive at the workshops of the Cumberland Valley Rail Road, in this place. It is now our duty to record the fact that another one is being built in the same establishment.

We claim for the Chambersburg works a high place in the role of machine shops. No engine of its size--and it was made for certain work--can surpass the "Enterprise," the engine which was turned out by this concern last Fall.

We had the pleasure of inspecting some of the beautiful specimens of workmanship intended for the new engine, and say, without hesitation, that we never saw anything more perfect--the product of man's skill.

These beautiful samples of handicraft, which we examined were made by MR. JULIUS F. GIBBS, and MR. JACOB FULLER, under the supervision of MR. ABRAHAM HULL, the Master Mechanic of the establishment, with whom both these young gentlemen learned their trade. Any young man who can secure a situation under so faithful an instructor as MR. HULL, cannot fail to make a first-class workman, if he has brains enough to retain the necessary instructions he will receive.

Death Of Mrs. A.J. White

Saturday morning at 3 o'clock Mrs. A.J. White breathed her last at the residence of her husband, on South Main street. This estimable lady had been in ill health for the last six months, during which she bore the most severe and writhing pain with becoming Christian fortitude and patience and never a work of murmur passed her lips against the will of her maker. Shortly before her death Mrs. White called all her children to her and pointed out to them the paths of life, which if followed will bring about that greatest of all rewards, "A Crown in the World to Come." With wonderful strength she joined, "We Shall Gather at the River," and then patiently awaiting the Master's call, she said, "Now let me go to Sleep," and passed sweetly beyond. The deceased lady was a con- sistent member of the Methodist church. and well known for untir- ing and devoted work in behalf of charity and temperance. A kinder or more affectionate mother, than Mrs. White, never lived, and she brought he children up in such a manner that she was always proud of them. She also called to the bed-side her attending physicians and bade them farewel, thanking them for their kindness during her long illness. She likewise bade her faithful household attendants a touching and sad farewell. To the Grief-stricken father, child- ren and relatives, the sympathy of the entire community is extended. Mrs. White was aged 53 years and 4 days.

The funeral will take place this afternoon at 4 o'clock. Friends and relatives are requested to attend without further notice.
