vances the respectability of the said young men?
Especially, too, when the whole tenor of the re

silence for the moment—to be broken, directly

manner : Fruit fully ripe was scalded, strained
through a sieve, slowly cooked half an hour,
spread on clean plates, and dried in an oven, the
whole process requiring about two days before
the fruit was ready to pack away."

Destruction of the Northumber
land Bridge by a Tornado.
On Thursday evening about half past 0 o'clocl,
a violent tornado suddenly passed over this plod.-
and in its course, we regret to say, swept non.
its foundation that portion of the Northumber
land bridge spanning the river from the island
to the Sunbury shore. The bridge now lie.
crushed in a mass of ruins, above the piers. Mr.
Krum, who resides on the Grant farm at the
eastern end of the bridge, had just driven ei
With a four horse team, and by the time 1...

saw the whole structure raised up and hurled
into the river. Mr. James Smith who was haul

drive over the bridge to this place. Foil unate!:.
no person was on at the time. The Nomhum
berland Bridge Company have been singularl;
unfortunate. The old bridges were erected IL
1815 at a cost of $OO,OOO. In the spring of IS:lf.,
the bridge on the Northumberland side fell, and
was rebuilt about a year after, at an expense of
about $20,000. Several years after the Danville
bridge was swept off by the flood, and m- its
course, came in contact with the new Northum•
berland bridge, and earned off . all but one span.
The bridge was again rebuilt the year after.—
About four years since the old bridge or. the
Sunbury side was destroyed by the fres'Zt. and
was rebuilt the year following, and now'
. lies in
the stream above the Piers a perfect wreck.—
The bridge just destroyed was badly constructed.
the arches being so much sprung the first year
of its construction, lb it required repairing.—

William:pert Saw Mills.
The capital invested in these mills, and in :it ,
. pine lands from IA Inch these mills ate stocked
may be safely estimated at tit2oo,ooo. At the
lowest calculation, and making liberal al 10.
:ince for accidents and dram backs, these nulls
have the capacity to manufacture over 100,0001
feet of lumber rimy twenty-four bouts, or
33,500,000 feet per annum. This may sound
extravagant, both at home and abroad ; but our
estimates are based upon careful and reliable
statements—statements which will bear the
severest scrutiny. In view of the heavy supply
from this and other points on the river, parties
,interested in a decline have endeavored and are
still endeavoring to produce the impression that
a great decline must take place in prices in con
: sequence of over production. The pine lands of
Pennsylvania are now reduced to a comparatively
narrow strip, and, u n like coal lands, there are no
second and third levels to resort to, as our noble
forests disappear before the woodman's axe.—
With the increase of population, more and more
, lumber will be required every year; and so far
' liom the Pennsylvania supply ever exceeding the
Pennsylvania demand, within the next thirty
years we shall have to look to other states for a
portion of our supplies. It would be folly to ea
pert the lumber market to be always buoyant
and the highest prices always maintained. .1
prudent business man operates not for one season
but for a series of years. He anticipates fluctu
ations, and endeavors so to conduct his affairs that
the losses of one year are more than covered by
the profits of the succeeding year. The great
thing needed in the lumber region is capital.—
, With more capital, it would be impossible for the
Philadelphia or Baltimore operators ever to de
press the market to alosing point. As it is now,
the prolitsOf such of our lumbermen as have
means and credit are seriously curtailed by the
