Branch Railway.

We are given to understand that is now definitively arranged to have a branch railway from this town to join the Leeds and Manchester Line at Cooper Bridge, and that the work will be commenced forthwith. In one point of view, the intended line will be hailed with satisfaction, as it will entirely do away with the almost intolerable nuisance which is felt by the public in consequence of the present unregulated omnibus system ; but, on the other hand, it is feared the speculation will be anything but a profitable one, the distance being only three and a half miles.
