THE WEEKLY CHRONOTYPE, Boston, July 16, 1846 

* Uncommon title

See the great, early engraving of a railroad train in the masthead. An interesting array of news tidbits, a few including: "The Mammoth Cave" of Kentucky; "Movements of Santa Anna" and "Dancing Forbidden" by the Presbytery of Harrisburgh, Pa, which notes: "...that dancing by professed Christians is in its tendency sinful."
