Alexander Wells , an old citizen of our neighboring town of Wellsville, Ohio, has in his possession a copy of an interesting and novel document issued by the school board of the town of Lancaster, this State, in 1828. The question of steam railroads was then in its incipient stages of agitation, and a club of young men had been formed for the purpose of discussing the points at issue, and desired the use of the schoolhouse for purposes of debate.
