Prof. Baar left for Huron county yesterday as the representative of tbe Harmony society of Pennsylvania, with a view to aid the T. A. A. & G. T. R. K. It is proposed to build a railroad frora Caseville to Marlette, and to Pontiac to connect with the Toledo and Ann Arbor. Prof. Baur has been working for this road ever since the Toledo road was built to this place. The Casevüle road will be an important feeder to this road, as Caseville is oue of the best harbors on Siiginaw Bay, where is also located the Lake Huron iron compan}', the principal owuers of which reside iu Cleveland, the heaviest capitalist, one Stone, being wonh over a $1,000,000. It is also proposed to run a line of boats froin Caseville to Tawas on the west side of the bay wliich will bring a very thrifty people in direct communication with Aun Arbor and Toledo By this route passengers will save six hours travel on their way to New York. Huron is one of the best wheat growing counues in the state. The Flint and Pere Marquette road turough Üiis county was built for the puipose of receiving a Urge revenue in shipments. The sume compaiiy is also building a ro;ul froin East Saginaw to Sebewainsr, to run to Bad Ax the county seat of Huron county. This new road will also cross the Detroit and Bay City road. We are reliably informed that the working of the road bed will be begun at Caseville this fall, and pushed rapidly to completion. From Pontiac to Oaseville an aid of $90,000 is asked, for which Prof. Batir has no doubt will be subscribed.
