ROARING- CREEK ANTHRACITE
Oh Monday last, we paid a visit to this
Establishment, which is situated near the
"mouth of the Big Roaring Creek in Calta
uissa township, Columbia county, and
which has just been coraple'ed and put in
full operation. This is the fust Anthracite
Furnare in blast in Columbia county, and
we believe the second in tho state. This
Enterprise was commenced by Burd Pat
"terson, Esq. of Pottsville, to whose enlei
prising spirit the Iron region of Columbia
county owe so much. The work was com
menced and now finished undsr the general
superintendance of Edward Y. Farquhar.
The buildings and all the arrangemenis both
fur tho eomfort and convenience of the
workmon have been upon the most liberal
scale. Tho stack house which is 100 by
45 feet is attached by spacions sheds to the
Bridge house of tho furnace, whereby the
tho hands as well as the Ore and Coal, ice.
are always sholteted from wet weather and
a very great saving of 6tock is also obtain
ed by having the Ore and Coal put into the
Furnace in a dry state. The following are
the dimensions of the Stack, Buildings fcc.
Height of Stack thirty ono feet. Width a
rross tho bodies nine. feet. Sizs of hearth
3 feet square by five feet high and seven
feet long in the bottom, The casting houso
is 00 Uy 80 ft. The arrangement of the hot
blaauisicoaBidored to ha the best. m &ner-
Icai It consols of four chambers, each
containing 12 semi-circular pipes and it ca
pable of heating the blast to upwards of
000 degrees, which we bellevo is tho great
est degreo of heat used for the blast in
Wates. The blowing cylenders are 40 by
I2 inches, and five feet stroke. They
throw out 4300 feet of blast per minute,
nearly doublo the amount required for one
Authracite Furnace. Tho location of this
Furnace is perhaps one of the best for wa
ter power in the State. The Blteam Roar
ing Creek, is a never failing one, and has a
fall of 54 feet on the property attached to
the furnace. Thero is ample power here
to work up all the Iron made at tke furnace
and it is in contemplation to erect a rolling
mill for that purpose. The Coal, Ore, &c.
can be brought on tho Rivet Susquehanna
to within a few hundred yards of the
The furnace is calculated to produce 8
tons of iron per day. Mr. Perry, the gen
tleman who started the Pottsville Furnaco,
now has the charge of this, and wc under
stand, has been engaged fur some length of
Any person viewing this establishment,
will be at one struck with the immense ad
vantages that water power possesses over
steam. Here we have a large establishmet
set on motion by a never failing stream of
water, acting on machinery of simple con
struction, not liable to be flung out of geer
by breaking, or by bursting of boilers,znd
making a saving of 12 or 15 dollars a day
for one slack. The samo power is capable of
blasting 2 furnaces, which gire a saving of
nearly 30 dollars per day, over steam.
Cortainly a handsome saving these hard
We have this week, commenced tho pub
lication of the address of the Democratic
National Convention held at Baltimore on
the 5th iust. It is truly an able document,
and well worthy of the sciious and candid
attention of every freeman. Who is there,
after reading this addrets, depicting in tuilh
as it does, the true policy of the Democratic
party and of the present administration, will
give his support, to the pucrile,every-which
way, "ask ray Committee Candidate,"
General Harrison, in opposition to Martin
Van BurenT The interested portion of
the whigs may huzza for a while, but tho
sober second thought of tho people will, in
the end, put all things right, by re-electing
Mr. Van Buren by a greater vota thfin any
President has ever been elected when there
has been a warm contest.
The membsrs of the Bloomsburg Band,
return their thanks to the Field Officers of
the 48th Regiment, and to the citizens of
Washington, for tho attention shewn ihem,
and for tho ample refreshments furnished
them gratuitously duiing their visit to that
place on Wednesday last.
Bloomsburg, May 23, 1840.
On Wednesday last, we were present at
the meeting of the 2d Battallion of the 48th
Regimental Washington in this county, un
der the immediate command of Major James
M'CormicR, and we were highly pleased
with the military spirit manifested on the
occasion by Col. Wm. Kitchen, Lieut. Col.
Neal M'Cay and Maj. James M'Cormick,
the field officers present. They were alt
handsomely equipped, and it being Maj.
M'Cormick's first appearance before a line
wo were highly gratified with the readiness
and correctness with which he performed
his duty. Great credit in alike due to
Cols. Kitchen and M'Cay.
GEORGIA. The accounts from this
state are extremely favorable. A corres
pondent of the Constitutionalist, published
at Augusta, writes from Milledgeville as fol
lows: "The Georgia Whigs have the
severest race to run this campaign that they
ever have had. Their efforts, now making,
clearly evince the troubles they anticipate.
'The clouds which lower upon their house"
are surcharged with elements which, peal
after peal, will thunder dismay into their
ranks. The positive and negative electri
city of the Georgia states rights men, will
mingle in June next and then farewell,
a long farewell, to all their former great
ness. The mint at New Orleans is in full ope
tation, and striking off at the rate of about
five thousand quarter pieces in an hour.
The design is the same as the last, but deep
er and more beautiful. So says the New
Orleans. True Aruericn
A Mr. James Bowman, formerly of Ban
gor, Maine, leccmly lost his Hfo by falling
into no excavation lor a cellar, at St. Louis.
On hearing of the accident, Mr. Glasgow,
to whom tho premises belonged, but who
was in no wiso blameable for the criminal
neglect by which tho accident occurred, drew
his check for 000 dollars, and sent to tho
destitute family of the deceased. Such acts
of noble benevolence deserve to be chronic-
Quite Natural that the Whigs should
wish to put us under " petticoat" govern
ment; as theirbrethrcn over the water are
under " that same."
There is a person now living at Horton
near Bradford, Mass., of tho name of John
Priestly who during a period of forty-five
years has travelled to his work every morn
ing, a distance of three miles, and returned
home again the same evening, being the
whole 100,740 miles.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE WHIGS
The Democratic National Convention a-
dopted resolutions and an address, declara
tory ot their principle fairly, frankly, and
The Whiifs adopted resolutions, seltiner
forth no principle, but advising their
'fiends, througtiout the Union, how , to
gull and deceive the people, and defraud
them rf their suffrages; mat theu may gain
power, and me it without restraint.
I he lnlellitf encer of yesterday mornins
alludes to the lailure to nominate a candi
date for tho Vice Presidency : 77ie Dem
ocratic party can, and de, agree upon
princijjtes, if they cannot on men. The
nign reudily agree vpon men, and can
not agree upon principles.
Another striking contrast between the
two parties is, thai the Whigs carry their
duclrme of credit so far, thai they even re
quire the people to give them power on cre
dit; they ask the people to trust them even
without their bond, lor their principles, af
ter tluy get in, as ueither of their National
Conventions at llarrisburg or liallimoie,
has dared to put forth the principle on
which they would administer the Govern
ment, nor will they suffer their candidate to
The Democratic party ask no credit or
time for the avowal of their principles; they
put them forth now; and are acting them
out every day; through the Administration
of tho Governmsnt.

INDEPENDENCE, is a beautiful bright
Bay, having a black list along his back, and
black legs, mane, and tail. He stands us
ing sixteen hands high; and for symetry
and movement, he can ha?e but very fipw su
periors mi this Continent. His former otrn

his stock of more value, than that of any
other horse that has been kept in the county

The Sire of INDEPENDENCE, was
