We urge upon our town authorities the importance of discontinuing the burial of the dead in the grave yard formerly attached to the Baptist Church in this place, and the taking of steps for its removal.  The town is rapidly building up in that direction, and it is located on one of the most commanding eminences around the place.  By removing it, many more beautiful building lots will be brought into market, which, otherwise, will mar the uniformity of our streets and place, as well as bring the grave yard in the very heart of the private residence part of the town.  Stop the interment of the dead there now, and it will not be a very great undertaking to remove those who have already been buried there, but let it continue another year or two, and it will be impractical to attempt it.
