--The foundation for the new mill of Haxall
& Co. is about as substantial a piece of masonry as we have ever seen.
These thick walls of granite will stand the test of time, and resist any encroachment of the river which runs along their base.
An arched tunnel, also of granite, has been constructed, leading from the canal directly under the walls, so that boats can be floated in and loaded or unloaded beneath the new building.
The numerous improvements that have been projected and carried into effect within a year or two by this enterprising firm, have completely changed the aspect of things on the bank of the river between Haxall's Mills and the Danville depot
True, the work has involved an immense outlay of money; but this, while it will eventually come back with remunerative interest to the capitalists themselves, has benefited many others who have found employment through their liberal schemes of improvement.
