Goderich and Brantford Railroad.
The Huron Signalsays, a meeting of the friends of this project was held at the British Exchange Hotel, Goderich, on Tuesday evening, 25th. inst. The meeting was well attended, and shows the deep interest taken by all classes in the contemplated undertaking. After a longer and able speech on the advantages of such a road to the inhabitants of Huron, Perth and Bruce by Mr. Geo. Brown, [illegible] the following among other resolutions was unanimously passed:
That a Public Meeting of these United Counties be held at the Market Square, Goderich, on Tuesday the 29th day of June inst. at 12 o'clock, noon, to take consideration on the propriety of recommending the County Council to take stock in the Buffalo and Brantford Railroad Company, in the same and on the responsibility of the United Counties, aforesaid. Provided, always, that the said Railroad is extended from Brantford through or by Stratford to Goderich.
Since giving the report of the Meeting the Signal had received a communication from the Secretary of the Brantford Corresponding Committee, announcing that the Town and Township of Brantford have already subscribed stock in the Buffalo and Brantford Railroad, and for their own local purposes to the amount of $310,000—that they are to hold a meeting on Saturday 20th inst. for the purpose of taking immediate action to extend said Road to Goderich.
