Why is it that all the Iron masters, far

If it cost fifteen dollars a day, besides the
wear and tear, and interest on original cost,

THE IMPROVEMENT BILL.
The House yosterday concurred in the
amendments made in Senate to this bill, so
that it now only wants the signature ef the
Governor to become a law. We gave tho
bill in a late paper as it passed the House

made in senate to it, was that moved by
Charles Ur.owN, fcsn. to exempt tho uni

it to be borrowed by tho Governor at an in

KASE& BEItGSTRESSER'S IRON FOUtf.
This establishment was started some two
years since, in Danvillo, by Mr. Simon P,
Kase, upon a cheap and economical scale,
the first bulidings being merely temporary
sheds, with horse power, and evory thing
on the cheapest plan, for a beginn tig.
Subsequently Mr. Kase and Mr. Let Berg
stressor formed a partnership in tho Foun
dry business. Their business soon became
so extensivo and promising, that they were
induced to embark in tho erection of more
extended and costly worksthe principle
shed had to give way to a well planned and
spacious two and a half story, frame build

excellent steam engine, and all the fixtures
and facilities for executing orders in their
line of business, greatly enlarged and im
proved. They no v run off in castings, as
high as twenty-five hundred weight of

their enterprising operations will bo given

LEAD MINE VALUABLE DISCO
VERY. A valuable vein of the above mineral was
recently discovered by the workmen, who
wero engaged in qnarrying limestone on the
land of Messis. Sesholtz and Bcrgstresser,
about two miles below Sunbury. The spe
cies ore discovered, is, what mineroligists
term Galena or the Sulphurat of lead, the
most valuable and productive of all ths lead
ores, and in fact tho only kind that occurs
in sufficient quantities by itself, to justify
its working In appearance, it much re
sembles the oro at Galena, III. excepting
that here it occurs in a massive form while
the ore at Galena, wo believe, occur princi
pally in cules.
The vein, which appears to be about
two feet in thickness, traverses a large body
of compact limestone which foims, at that
place, a bold and precipitous rock, washed
by the Susquehanna. The breadth or ex
tent of tho vein, has not yet been fully as
certained, but so far as it has been exposed
in presents a breast of about sixteen feet
in breadth. Some of the specimens that
wo havo seen, teem to be equally as rich as
the best oro at Galena, and wilt en an aver
age, we think, yield from 00 to 70 percent.
Several persons from the neighborhood
have melted the ore in a common iron la
dle and cast bullets of pure metal. Suubu-
The Hellidaysburg Standatd givts the
following account of a shocking outrago
perpetrated in Huntingdon county :
A man of tho namo of Brown, who re
sides with his family near Jacks Mountain,
had been from home part ot tho week, and
on returning to his homo on Saturday even
ing, found his door fast, and on trying to
get in ho heard a shot Irom a guu and
on turning round, (tninKing tne snot
was fired at him) another gun went off, the
ball glazed his face and passed through his,
ear. He saw the smoke of the gun at his
barn: and ran towards it. He saw two men
run from tho barn, but did not get near c
nough to identity them, un climbing up
into the hay loft, from whence tho smoke
proceeded, be founnu his two rules, and al
so the key of the door. He relumed to the
house, and on opening it found his wile and
oldest son (21 years of agej murdered the
rest of the family missing.
He gave the alarm to his next neighbors,
who turned out to hunt the rest of the fami
ly. On the next day (Sunday,) he found
four of his children murdered, two shot,ono
with its throat cut, and the other with its
brains knocked out. They were found in
different directions, evidcntally flying for
saefty, but were overtaken and butchered in'
this most fiendish manner.
Thus perished six of this unfortunate fam
ily the mother and fivo children, tho lat
ter of whom were between 21 and 10 years
of age. The father is badly wounded in
the face, but will probably recover.

highly disgraceful to our country and if not
