and improvement. The soil compares
favorably with that of any part of Penn

seen. Thirty bushels of wheat-per acre
is an average crop. This wes.worth last
fall, about 90 cents, and now is worth
5.1,20, and $1,25 per bushel. The finest
wheat growing section of the west is said
to, be in- this county, and in the other
counties west of this and in the same lat

ED. JonaxA.L.-;--This is a stirring.city,
as far es Politics is colleen:led. It has also
apretty large margin foI mobs. 'Some three
*weeks since, a furious' and excited mob at
tacked the jail bringing a cannon to bear on
it ; and demanding the prisoners, (a la
San Francisco), 'or rather, four negroes
who had committed afoul murder and had
been aequited. The demand was quickly
complied with, and the negroes hung on
the trees around-the. Court House. The
leaders of the mob•have been arrested, and
the probability is that they will be acquit
ted on theplea of insanity. The witnes- ,
ses testified that they (the mobocrats) were
phrensied, and the. Judge interpreted. it,
i.isan, ity,—"perfectly right."
Fighting duels, otherwise 'settling affairs
of : honor," are frequent. I regret (?) how
ever, to report that no blood has been spil
led in the three last; although; in one in
stance, six shots were exchaugea.• We have
ther, excitements and sports to make life
