WARllEN.—Without the least disposition to
disparage any of the other towns of this sec
tion, we must give the palm to Warren of
being the prettiest and finest located interior
place in North-Western Pennsylvania. A
half dozen or more flying trips there had
given us a favorable impression of it before,
but last Friday, being called to visit the town
on business, we were prevailed upon by in•
ducements that could not be resisted, to ex
tend our visit half a day longer, than we in
tended, and had every reason to congratulate
ourself upon the delay. Situated on a high
bank, overlooking the beautiful Allegheny,
with lofty mountains on all sides, and just
enough valley to give a picturesque effect to
the scenery, there is no other inland place
that we have seen which competes with it in
the qualities that make tip a desirable resi
dence. The spot seems to have been especi
ally designed by nature for a handsome town,
and it is hard to resist the conclusion that its
founders must have been artists as well as
practical men of business. The people of
Warren manifest a degree of local pride com
mensurate with the rich privileges which
they enjoy, and spare no pains to render .the
attractions of nature still more fascinating by
the adornments of human taste and skill.
The town contains more than its proportiott
of elegant churches and private dwellings,
come of which would be creditable to com
munities of many times its size. We traversed
it in every direction, and do not recollect of
seeing more than a.half dozen houses in all
that did not wear the appearance of comfort
and tasteliness. The cemetery at this place
is a spot of unusual beauty. It is located on
the side of a hill, overldoking,the river, and
commands a full view of the town and sur
rounding country for miles. There are more•
fine monuments titan in our own, though it is
hardly tour years old, and some of the lots
arc arranged with exquisite neatness. With
,a bridge across the Allegheny, which 'it is
strange to us has not been erected long ago,
and,better roads, Warren would approach as
near to pet fection as it is possible fora place
to attain in the comparatively unmroved
condition of out country. A pleasanter place to
spend a few weeks of recreation we cannot
conceive, and we are greatly deceived if, in
course of time, it does not become a favorite
resort for people from the cities in search of
health and pleasure. During our stay; we
were under special obligations to Brother
Morris, of the Ledger, to whom and his esti
mable lady we owe the pleasantest day we
have passed in a long period.
A SPLENDID C'ErirE—The new iron Pro
flatter "Philadelphia,'-' of Evans!-Line, under
charter from the Anchor Line, made us her
first visit on the 11th inst. But a few years
since a schooner of 1011 whit was looked upon
as a large vessel ; now here is an iron one
of fifteen times the size, and resembling in
appearance a majestic ocean steamer. We
are m hopes to see more of such enterprise,
and a line of such crafts, owned by the Phila.
& Erie R. R. Co., or this •enterprising trans
portation company, the .Anchor _Line. , The
* dimensloils of the Philadelphia 'are "228'fbet
keel, 216 feet entire length, 34 3-8 feet bearit,
16 feet hold; taken as an average with the
sheer of the vessel; and six: watertight 'iron
bulkheads. She is propelled by 'fit' &int&
cylinder marine condensing engine, with 38
inch caliber by 26 inch stroke, and ti ten
feet ten inch wheel. She is furnished with
an improved steering apparatus, said to be
superior to a*thing yet invented. Her bur
then is 1403 tons, with capacity for 75,000
bushels of grain.
4 es of li
cense applications this year Is leiter than
ever before, numbering about one hundred
and eighty in all. Considering that the Tem
,Perallee ingdzations tiro nia3re sigihmt tlis
usual, this circumstance is somewhat eurpiis•
ing: and affords a splendid opportunity for
philosophical reflection and argument. The
following persons have filed their applica
tions, in additiontargtirlist published last
week, and ilirlUtye_tlitin considered at the
Court which meets an the first Monday in
the month. Lleensetinot taken out within fif
teen days after their* granted are fOrfeited

it is a work that reflects very much .credit
