"Neutral In Politios." An anonymous writer , over the initials of J. D. has taken refuge behind a little 7 by 9 print in this Borough, which he terms a Battery to be sure, and from which Ihe good citizens of Lehigh county are enlightened by a wcaldy discharge of about a "Baker's dozen," all told.— This so called Battery, is the "Shield" chosen by this veritable, this "timed" and "nervous" writer, who says: wo "lack the courage to avow our principles " —our principles, eh ! and he, fearless fellow ! fires his stpiihs, like a midnight assassin from behind his twelve gun battery, in order lo disguise the charge, which ho under his real name — if a man of honor — would feel abashed to own. Our principles, Mr. J. D., are synonymous with thoso of our readers. We take up and discuss every subject, from which we believe our readers will derive some benefit—and as for the howling and prating of political Demagogues—without "fear, favor or affection." We would further remark, lhat we ho...

Wealth of Pennsylvania. i lie iron anuuoal ot I'onnsyivaiiia, noilouut, yields al this time, 920,000,000 perannum. Il is likely that in ten years, this sum will have increased :o 550,000,000, and ourcoal and iron trade, eventually, make Pennsylvaniathe richest State, and Philadelphia (he wealthiest city in the Union. But there are probably, in addition , many sources of wealth not yel thought of. Iu England, spermaceti is being extracted from peat, and it has been latel y discovered that the shales of that country contain a large amount of spermaceti, which can ha economically applied lo the making of oil and candles. Wo have abundance of shale in Pennsylvania, which burns wilh a clear bright flame.— Why should not our Eastern neighbors, instead of sending to the coast of Kairtschalka for sperm oil, ereel their works in the mountains of Pennsylvania. The profit in England is estimated lo bo very great. We mention these fads, hoping they may elicit information from those who ar...

A uood klory—rhey tell a story of a man out West who had a hair lip, upon which he performed an operation himself, by inserting inio the opening a piece of chicken flesh—it adhcted and filled up the space admirably. This was all well enough, until, in compliance with the prevailing fashion, he attempted lo raise a pair of mustaches, when one side grew hair and die other feathers.

Charms of Rural Life. Besides (he benefit of mental discipline derived from the study of nature, for which agriculture opens as wide a field as any oilier pursuit, (he charms of rural life are unalloyed by the reflection of ill-gotten gains, and unconlam. inated by immoral influences. The farmer has no occasion to review wilh remorse, a life of in. justice to his fellow-men, or mourn the loss of fortunes accumulated by an occupation almost necessarily dishonest, The lawyer looks upon his briefs prepared for unjusi tauscs; the physician upon the emaciated forms of his patients, and the speculator upon the wealth amassed from the ruined fortunes of others, wilh the humiliating consciousness thai they have not in all instances, returned and equivalent for what ihey have received. But Ihe cultivator of Ihe soil may ' pursuei'liis calling Willi" the cheering reflection, that an all-bounteous Providence has rewarded his efforts, and through his efforts, ' and through him bestowed mo...

Iron Cinder Roads. A. correspondent of the National Intelligencer says lhat this article surpasses all other materials for the construction of roads, the particles being loo heavy to be moved by the wind; and after a rain they rnst and cement together, and by use become perfectly smooth and solid and will endure for a length of time. He suggests that the middle of tin) avenue, not paved instead of gravel, should be covered with iron cinder, which would make a complete finish, at little more cost than the gravel, and surpass all other roads or streets in this or any other Country. As we know a little aboul such kind of roads we presume that the furnace ashes are meant in the above. They do make a hard compact road after having been well trod, rolled and pounded. But wilh coarse ashes for an underlayer'arid sifted ashes above " them 10 (be depth of G inches, then pound Ihe whole well down and lake our word for it, a road of no common quality will be the result.

A New Manure. Robert Bryson, Esq. of Cumberland count)', about eight miles from Harrisburg, Pa. has been experimenting for the last ten years, to make exhausted Ian.bark available and . valuable as manure. Besides his magnificent farm, he likewise carries on the tanning business. Finally, after a great deal of expense, and many failures, he has succeeded in discovering a method of producing from ihe tan an efiicient manure. This is his plan: He has his tan wheeled out on a level piece of ground, and leveled olftwoor three feet thick. Over this he spreads a layer of two or three inches of lime, and over lhat again a strata of tan—then a layer of lime, and so on. He lets ine bed so prepared remain for two years ; at the end of thai time he finds himself in possession of a bed of manure, llie cffecis of which upon ihe land can hardly be surpassed, for ihe richness of its product, and the durable fertility which il imparls.
