; 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 borough, was accidentally drowned in the mill-race of Wrn.A. Thomas, on Satur day morning last. She had, it is supposed, attempted to cross the race on a foot bridge, and fell in. The Episcopal church at York, Ha , is under going a thorough course of repair and alteration. Upwards of 30,000 shad are said to have been taken in one day last week, by the fishermen m Newark Bay, New Jersey. A Lot of " fellows" went on a deer hunt the other day, in Arkansas, and in less than four hoars captured five girls and a woman. A man named Maiehorn, woe found dead in a lime-kiln, near York, Pa., on Friday of laat week. It is supposed that he fell into the kiln whilst in a state of intoxication.

Counterfeit Mexican doubloons have been found in the possession of two rogues arrested at Augusta, (Ja. They are said to be of full weight, and well calculated to deceive. A lawyer on his death bed, willed all his property to the Lunatic Asylum, saying as a reason for so doing that he wished his property to return to the liberal class of people who patronized him. The extensive tannery of Messrs. Conant Bro., at Panducah, Ky., was eplirely destroyed by fire a few days since. J/s $20,0011 —half covered by insurance. o^7"The Hon. Joseph Casey, who now so ably and efficiently represents the 13th District of this State in Congress, we regret to learn by a letter published in the Union Star, de clines to be a candidate for re-election. Job's question, in the 33J chapter 35th verse, •'Can'st thou send lightnings that they ina/go end say unto thee here we are!" is no longer a problem. The telegraph lightning says a great deal more. The iron for the Pittsburgh and Cleveland Railroad has been contracted for in England, end 2000 tons have been shipped. The iron will reach Cleveland byway of Quebec, and the work is to be pushed forward as rapidly as possible. Mr. John Doyle, an Irishman, employed on the York and Harrisburg Railroad, was injured last week by the blowing up of akegof powder, so seriously as to cause his death. He was re moved to this borough on Saturday evening, where be lingered in great pain until yesterday morning, when he died.— Har. Int. MELANCHOLY. —Miss ELIZA MCDOWELL, of Allegheny township, in this county, committed suicide, on Tuesday evening last, by cutting her throat with a penknife. She had been laboring under an attack of sickness for some months previous, and was no doubt mentally deranged when she done the unfortunate deed.— Blair Co. Whig. ACCIDENT.—A serious, if not fatal accident happened to one of the Uaion Line carmen, named Shaw on Monday last. The unfortunate man was standing beside his train of cars as the Express was descending, the baggage car of which jumped off the track when opposite him, catching him between the cars and injuring him so severely that but little hope is entertained of liis recovery.— Hollidaysburg Standard. The New Pavement which it being laid in the streets of Now York is to Co6t four dollars and fifty cents per square yard. It has three eeveral layers of sand and the top stones being large granite blocks. A line of cobble rtones will be laid between t:,e granite blocks, so as to form a pavement for the horses to travel over, which is intended to obviate the complaint about horses slipping. MILL BURKT. —We re sorry to learn that the valuable Flouring Mill of Francis Gibson, Erq , siiua'fil on Sherman's creek, in Spring township, wns totally consumed by fire on I iitireday or Friday r.ight last. The mill was in exreli. Nt repjir, and was not insured. The ''.use of th- fire is unknown to us.— Perry Freeman, THIS PTURLFTION or M ACHINHRV —A ggn --' f Bloom hammer, the largest evei made in England, an t weighing fix tons, is being man ufactured in Liverpool for an establishment 111 New York.

M. Our borough was thrown into great excite ment this afternoon, by the cry of " Fire." The Exchange or Masonic Hall, in Walnut street, next to Prince's Hotel, was discovered to be on fire. The firemen were soon on the spot, and in the course o 1 an hour, succeeded in subduing the flames. A man named William Paxson, was killed this morning, on the railroad, near Middletown, in attempting to detach a car, while the train was in motion. He fell between the cars, and the train passed over his body, killing him in stantly. The Rev. Pe'.er McEoally,of the Baltimore Annual Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, died very suddenly on the 18h ult., near Philipsburg, Pa., on the mountain. He' bad alighted from his carriage to adjust some thing that was wrong, and complained of a stitch in his side, remarking that in a few mo ment s he would be a dead man, when he almost instantly expired. SINGULAR ENACTING IT THE CRUCIFIXION.— ; A Berlin paper states that there is in Russia a place called Anerdale, where a rr.o.-t singular custom exists. Every ten years the awlul scenes of the crucifixion are enacted by the villagers, home are dressed to represent so!- I diers and Jews, some as Pharisees, and many ' men, women and children stand around as the crowd of spectators, while on the three crosses are nailed figures in wax, and at the feet kneei women who represent the Marys. The whole scene is gone through with in all the details, and lasts all day. This very singular perform ance, which has been kept up since the middle ages, is announced to take place again in the month of June of this year, and strangers arc ! invited to witness it MARRIED.
