; The iron business iu Lebanon county,
sa ys the Courier, is in a frightfully de- ,
pressed condition. Neither of the five
North Lebanon furnaces is now in opera- j
tion ; and the two splendid new furnaces
which were recently erected at Cornwall, *
near the Ore Hanks, will not be blown in.
It is feared the blowing of them into oper- ;
a tion might 44 have a bad effect on public ■.
opinion in England."
JAMBS C. TAYLOR, of Atlantic, N. J.,
writes to the American Agriculturalist as ■
follows respecting the planting of Corn :
44 I had the benefit of soaking corn in
saltpetre, to plant, well tested last year, on
a small piece of ground, planted late. I
had not enough soaked to plant all the
piece. Where it was not soaked, the black
birds pulled about one-third ; where it was
soaked they seldom touched a hill. But
what was most peculiar, there happened
to be one row planted with dry corn be- •
tween two rows that were soaked ; of the i
dry they took several hills clean, and, al
together, about one-third of the row, while i
they did not take more than one hill of the 1
two saltpetre rows.
DROWNED. —We learn from the Bellc
fonte "\\ hig, that Jacob Roush, a young
man of eighteen years, was drowned in the
Big Mashannon, a sliort distance above
the saw mill of James Antes, on Friday
afternoon last. He had been engaged in
iloating logs to the Mill, and for the pur
pose had constructed a small float or raft,
upon which he was observed a short time
before his disappearance. It is supposed
that the logs of the raft parted and that he
fell through, and thus got under it.
From the same paper, we learn that an
interesting child, between five and six years
of age, a daughter of Jacob Lilley, of that
