Excerpts from the Interior Journal Pulaski Column Edited by Will C. Curd Somerset, Ky., August 18, 1873
Cincinnati Southern R.R. Two additional corps of engineers passed through our town on Friday last, as we are informed, for the purpose of assisting in making the final and complete survey of the contemplated railroad route which runs through the limits of our town and crosses the Cumberland River at Point Burnside. The corps of engineers which have been at work on this same route for several months past, are now engaged about fifteen miles distant from Somerset. It is not intended that we should yet know anything definite, but from all we can see and hear, we certainly have evidence sufficient to conclude that our's is the route. The Boy Circus. The third annual exhibition of the juvenile circus took place on the vacant lot near II S. Porch's on the 14th last. The performances were good of the kind for boys so young; particularly those of the acrobats, tumblers, pole climbers, African mule and his rider, dancers, etc., but we are sorry to learn that young America of our town failed to sell a sufficient number of tickets to pay expenses, as it is a great pity to discourage them in so great an enterprise, one that pictures to them way off in the future as much brightness and renown. Fishing Creek Baptist Church. For some months past, there has been great dissatisfaction prevailing amongst the members of Fishing Creek Church in our County, causing a division of the contingent parts, and an exclusion from the church of such party or division by the other, and both parties claiming the right to be represented is the Association on the 12th last, consequently their letters or petitions were presented, each party claiming to be the church and asking so to be declared such by the Association. The matter was referred to a select committee, who in consideration of all the facts and troubles before them, reported unfavorable to both parties and refused to recognize either one as the Fishing Creek Church, and further that the Association had no right to entertain letters or petitions relative to matters of this character from a church known to be in so much confusion and disorder. They were, therefore, in a spirit of kindness and Christian feeling, admonished to return to their own church once so prosperous and settle their own difficulties. And we will add that this decision was but another exhibition of the vision of this religious assembly.
