EW YOBK, Feb. 14th,21865.
The o ening' of tin Philadelphia and
Erie Railroad, which traverses nearly the
whole length of the Sin neraahoning River,
in Cameron and,Potter 'counties, F'ennsyl
verde, has brosght thin wild region tote
"prominent notice. Thearable lands are
of a red ehale soil, and good for agricul
tural purposesiand ON whole are of great
value for their timber and minerals'. The
recent discoveries ES petroleum and salt
upon thewaters of this stream, has caused
a great speculation along the stream and
its tributaries and the snows of . winter
do not prevent a search for the hidden
wealth. Beaten paths; through the snow
and excavations ia the frozen soil and on
the ice-bound streams indicate the search
for gas, coal, and copper, which abounds
there. From appearancee this' wild
and neglected mountain 'region bids fair
to exceed in mineral w ealth, any other,
State. It is nouns d that. the lion
John agee - Sons, f Watkins,- New

"Fall Bro coal mines" have, purchased
ten thousand acres of land near the' mouth

and near, the line of Potter and Cameron
counties, which is said Ito contain petro
leum, salt, iron, coal, cooper, and lead, in
considerable , titran'tities and is of untold

of this company is a sufficient guarantee

Europe ftan do notbing'iu the tuatter,and
