connitetoi with the iron trade, and coming fican a
Amiss of their success who waaon the spat, may
be re4ed on as correct.
the 12th of November latt,lhe second exper
iment was ma& ; —at 1 o'clock in the morning the
first-liarrow of Cokes was put into the furnace; the
fire isnis kindled at 7 o'clock, A. M. of the same day,
and at 2 o'clock P. M. the cinder begun to fun, and
continued. to flow freely and without interruption,
till 310 clock, A. M. of the 13th, when the first Cast
was tirade, yielding nearly 4 tonsmf Grey Iron , of a
good kuality. The subsequent Casts were made
regal Fly twice in every twenty four hours, increas
ing ip quantity, and in quality, as the furnace warm
ed,'4ing foundry Iron, (11io.•1 and No. 2,) and
egos I to the best Snatch Pig.. The yield of the fu
nano: augmented to the last. During the
first *reek the furnace made 50. toos.of Iron in the
second week, the yield was 93 tons, when she was
blowp out for the want of power, the water having
failed ,in the mean time.
Ben)amin Perry has done as 'much fur the Iron Imsi
ness 4is any other man in Great Britain, having , been
the flTst .to hlow in a fuinace without scaffolding,
thus iiacing a large amount of materials and labor.
Inithe second experiment at Farrandsville, there
was pot, at any one time, more than half the requi
site Aillar of blast, during the two weeks she was
working. With sufficient blast, she would 'make
from:1100 triisit v t : ons of Iron .per week. It is not a
vain b oast to a rt that never was a furnace in
Engyind, Scotland or Wales, that started off more
easily, worked with less trouble, or made as much
Iron in quantity, and of as good finality, during the
first fortnight of blowing in.
Coke- Iron can be produced?at this place as cheap,
if not cheaper, than in any other district of this re
gion. The Coal Basin on which Farrandsle
is situated, ron i iins at the present time only a qingle
Ceke Furnace; 'but we may confidently look forward
to the peri,xl, and that not far distant, when the
mountains and the vallicb of this region'shall he
made to teem with the industry consequent on the
general introduction of Coke Fumices."
Al:other loco mo r e.—The }vcning Post, the or
gan of the locos at New York, has advised that if
dlr. Tailgate is nominated by tie Whigs for U. S.
Senator, the State Senate should not go into the e
lection. The Constitution requires that bolls houses,
shall ballot, first separately and then jointly for can
didates., and in Cage the mpper house, which has, for
the last time a loco majority, should coincide with
thij infamous suggestion thestate will have but one
Senator. This is but amifivation of the great
system of fraud, by which a desperate administration
are determined to dispute foot by foot, and inch by
- inch, the sovereign will of the people. Their days
however are numbered, and misrule will soon 'be

-Parallax of Starr—lt has been reserved for
modern addenda, and the perfection of astnntomical
instruments, to determine a , measurable parallax
of a fixed star. The discov has been made by
Professor Besseil of Conigsb , who has ascertain
ed the annual parallax-of N. 61 in Cygnur,„ this
being effected, the distance of stars from the earth
can be calculated. Th i:e tlax being the greatest
angle subtended by • ' conceived to be drawn
from the star to a base which is the semi-diameter
of the•earth's orbit, the distance of a-star can now,
be foundas easily as that of the stn. To show the
extreme degree of nicety to which truruments have
been brought for astronomical purposes, the parallax
had heretofore been ascertained to be 'less than one
second- On the supposition that the angle was but
one second,the distance of a star would be 206,265
times the distance of the sun from the earth. This
is so immense.a space, that light, moping at the velo
city of 192,000 miles every . second of time, would
require more-than three yeais to come from the•titar
to the earth ! Inconceivable as this is, the distance
of the nearest fixed star, must be still greater. Into
what a profundity of research does the glorious
science of astronomy lead, and how boundless must
be that power, which can hold the univer,se in har
monious motion. ,
Frante and M,rico. —We have of late years has
our sympathies enlisted so much in favor of Texas,
and our antipathies in proportion against Mexico,
that we are hardly e iepared to commiserate the let ,
ter even when she assumes the attitude of the injur
ed party. That such is now her evident position
we think will appear on-the very -cursory examina
tion, which we are able to devote to the subject, but
which we think its interest demands from us.
When Mexico freed herselffrom the Spanish yoke,
the 'United States and Great Britain were the first
to recognize her independence, and enter into trea
ties by which reciprocal protection was granted to
-commerce, and the rights of citizens, upon their re
spective soils. France never promulgated any trea
ty, nor did she even recognise her as an independent
nation, until Louis PhiUippe was calledtdthe throne:
At that period there was a spirit' of liberal feeling
among the French nation, emanating froM the
smouldering rrcolleotions of • the imperial glory,
which actuated this step. The mere recognition
however, without necessary treaties does not guar
antee immunities or priviledges.to citizens of the sov
reignty so recognized, but they must content them
selves, should they leave the protection of -their own
laws, with such Its may be afforded them under the
country of their residence.
During"the many intestine disturbances which
have recently agitated Mexico.; it is not surprising
that resident Frenchmen, should have suffered los
'sea ; hut it is really surprising, that in the face of na
tions, France should demand reparation for such los
ses, arid still mop so, that she should demand de
grading concessions, because her subjects havipg
been taken as pirates, have suffered their •merited
doom as such !
The attempt of General Mejia, , a Mexican Exile,
on Tampico, is fresh in the memory of all. Driven
from his own country for an attemputo subvert the
regular authorities, already reeling from the eiteets
of the Texian war, he cosregated screw in New
Orleans composed of aboA two hundred renegades
from all.eonntries--men of desperate characters, and
broken 9 . srtunes, and with them, he. sailed on his en
terprise to plunder the city;:of Tampico. Its, result
is wellsremembered; of the whole bond only three or
four escapetlonneng whom was Mejia himself; the
rest were shot after a regular trial and condemnation!
Shortly after this circumstance,-Baton Daffendas,
arrived in Mexico from France as Minister Plenipo
tentiary, and demanded restitution for property lost
and confiscated by his Jountrymen, and likewise
made it an ultimatum, that the Judge who condemn
ed Mejia's gang of pirates should be degraded from
office ! Receiving rib attention to such glemands,
not only preposterons„but blustering and cowanhy
in the representative of a powerful nation towards
a new and barely organized govenintent, he threw.
himself on board a French frigate, and threatened, if
his proposals were not Rev:dewed in, to visit with
summary ptinisiment the contumely. The Mexic‘an
government, either unable or unwilling, resisted
these terms, and the consequence has been, a gener
al blockade, and the capture of, Vera Cruz, as stated
in our last JournaL
These arb the facts, and the principles of inter ,
national law, involved in this quarrel, in which France
has-behaved with manifest disregard to justice, and
that digni y which should characterize every pro
ceading of one of earth's greatest nations.'
HoUrrada - Belgic (Ideation. —The difference
between and Belgium have been the cause
of so great a waste of diplomacy, as almost to render
it a farce. At last however a conference has been
held, and a. final settlement made; with the consent
of France. Luxembourg is to be restored to Hal;
land, and a pertion.of the debt to be dedicted in fa
vor of Belgium; and so we suppose, they will be
very good Mends, until the next outbreak.*

Coal -Supply.—A crinespondent in last_ Thurs
day's U. S. Gazette, under the signature •of "Phila
delphia," has not read our articles on this subject
with proper attention, or we have been unfortunate
in not making ourselves understood. The cause of
the deficiency of 1838 was the suridue of 1837; the
dealers were over cautious in theirliurchases for fear
of a similar result, without looking into the tempo
rary causer', 'which produced - IL We do not antici
pate a deficiency this spring, as the 200,000 tons
laying unconsumed at the opening of the last season,
answers every purpose of an increased shipment.,
-"Philadelphia" next calls us "lazy and indolent;"
he never could have visited our hive-like place, or
have seen the mining operations of our region. We
were not only ready, but anxious-to send more •coal
down, but we are not willing to - sell below goat, if
we can help it, or to be continually beving persons
to behome purchasers : more coed could undoubtedly
have been shipped lastsion, but.for this one rea
son, there were no purehgre Is..
One word more to the correspondent : he must be •
aware of the difference betiveen invested and work
ing capital in our•business; of the 73 milliorts estima
ted'as the capital employed in the region, not one four
teenth was set crown as working 'Capital, The want ,
of this has ever been a drawbick to our miners; not
half the working capital actually •employed' is ob.
tamed here,'"but is found abroad. Our mining capi ,
tal is too small, as• the "idle - and indolent' inhabi
tants of the Schuylkill Coal Region have - found to
their cost during the past sea4on.• In conclusion,
we can only say, give us pitrchasers, and we will
give you coal—give us liberal orders and liberal
.prices, which will answer the purposes of a working
capital, end we will send you a full supply of our
staple, and there 'shall he no cause of complaint from
any quarter, if • the Navigation Company will lend
their assistance in facilitating the trade of the region
by increasing the supply of water, and aid in provid
ing a remedy for the numerqns frauds rimy practised
on the line of the eAntil, which has added at least
50 cents, to the toll and freight on every, ton of Coal
shipped for the last 'two ) cars. '•
. We agice iasubstancewith the writer of the
following communication, nothwithstanding the
"levity - with which we treated the correspondent of
the U. S. Gazette ; that however was instigated,
rather by his direct applicataim w U.A. in preference
to the Navigation Company, than any doubt as to
the well founded ground of complaint.
We do not think the loss to the company by the
want of waver Mast season, as great as "Boatmen"
imagines. The depression in the coal business was
such, tilt* a much greater quantity would not have
.shipped even had the navigation continued
uninterrupted, although the edicr trade of the canal
doubtless. suffered' most materially ! The drought of
the last season was Vmost.unpeilerited, and can
hardly be expected to occur again. This. however
does riot diminish the necessity of Koran; against
its recurrence;lor in a future year, the loss to colliers
will be very great, should any similiar disaster put a
check on their ixtended operatioim.. Deets, horses
and other appurtenances, are to be ,supported at a
ride of from 40 to $5O a day, and an interrupted
navigation would prove ruinous. Every year the
invesuid capital must be greater, end the expense of
driving engines below the water level must be carried
on whether an outlet. is offered to the produce or not.
These considerations should. inilece the Navigation
Coinpany to use every exertion to supply the canal
with such a number of efficient dams, as will supply
water during a long continued drought. As to the
means of effecting this, we agree with our correspon
dent, and think it incumbent the company to
supply feeders, and construct dams on Mit Creek,
Tumbling Run, mid the other streams along the cal
nal, withs'as little less of time as possible, t i ms seeitr
ing an outlet for our produce, uninterrupted save by
the rigidity of winter. •
