Smyscr, of Montgomery. Tho late Storm and Freshet. The late storm extended over a large district of country, and proved very de p ruetive. The Belvidere Delaware R ail road was damaged in a number of place between Easton and Lambcrtville ; but was soon put in running order. The Mor ris Canal was considerably injured, but has been repaired. The Delaware Divi sion was broker iu several places, the most serious betweeu Uhlcrsville and Dur ham, and a great quantit of earth wash- cd into it, be sides extensive war-hms 01 the tow path. The Legislature has ap propriated 15,000 for repairs, and we Live been informed that a large number of hands are at work upon it. It will not he ready for business before the first ol June.

It is now S 4i T ' t three weeks since the commencement of this trial; and the verdict, which is looked for with great anxiety, will probably be rtndv-rcd to-morrow.

Our Roads, The country roads were never in a worse condition at this season of the year than thoy are now. The supervisors appear to defer their repair until they have nothing chc to attend to. when, bv a iare a mount of wear and tear of the f-pring travel, they are worn into a tolerable condition. Road taxes generall, under the present system, so far as our experi t nee goes, is very nearly so much .money thro a a away. An Artificial Man. The 3Iemorial Bordelais states, that nut far from St. Sever, there is living an "id military man i ho has a false lc and a lalse arm, both moveable by means of "prings, a glass eye, a complete set of false toctb, a nose of silver, covered with a subttance perfectly resembling flesh, and a silver plate replacing part of the Aull. He bears on his breast the Cross f the Legion of Honor, won in the cam paigns of Egypt, Italy and llussia, at Friedland, Jena, Austerlitz, Wagrain aud Waterloo. The Wheat Crop. The Rochester (N. Y.) American, on this subject says: During a recent trip through the con tral and southern portion of this county, on both sides of the river, we made ob servations and inquiries respecting the onditioB of the growing wheat crop, as we had opportunity. Very little appears to have been damaged by the frost of winter and spring. (Ia the clay lauds of Gate, Ogden and Greece, appearonces are not so favorable.) An intelligent farmer from Caledonia informed us that throughout j that town and York, ou the beach and maple lauds, the crop is even more prom ising than on the oak .land in Wheatland Kush, &c. So, on the whole, we think, there is good reason to expect at least an average yield. Farmers are in high spir its as is natural when land sells at 100 per acre, and wheat at $2 per bushel. Au unusually large breadth will be plaat ed to corn and wheat this season, in ex pectation of high prices during the next twelvenjODth. j .

Judge Pollock will not Resign. We are sorry to see a paper in the Western part of the State, which has heretofore been looked upon as a reliable Whig paper start, a report that Judge Pollock is going to resign his nomination as the candidate of the Whig partv for Governor, and urging the propriety oi the Whigs running David Wilmot. We have reference to the Pittsbunr Commer cial Journal. The idea was "suggested by our neighbor of the Independent Whig but lie has seen the folly of his suggestion, and has very wisely gouc to work m favor of the regular Whig ticket. The Journ al took the idea from him, and to his dis credit be it said persists in his suicidal policy. Our private advices of a perfect ly reliable source, inform us that the course of tho Journal is censured by the whole Whig party of Alleghcuy comity Somc of our Loeofoco eotemporarios are making au "awful fuss" over this refusal of the Journal, to acqniesc in the action of the convention. We hope they may reap all the consolation possible from it. They and the Journal are welcome to all it will profit them. In regard to Judge Pollock resigning jve say once for all, that he informed us last week, that he had no idea of it, but was getting ready to go to work and give Gov.

Cincinnati Enquirer, April 1st. .o, Battles on the "Western Plairs. The Santa Fe mail arrived at Inde pendence (31o.) on the 23d ultimo. It brings intelligence of a fight on the oth of 3Jarch between a detachment of twenty-six men under the command of Lieut. D. Dell, of the second dragoons, and a party of Jicarilla Apache Indians, unknown. TheJoss of the United States troops was two killed and four wounded; theludiau loss nine killed aud twenty-one wounded. The celebrated Apache chief Lobos was among the killed. On the :30tb of 31 arch another fight took place, twelve miles from Loar, be tween a company of sixty dragoons, com manded by Lieut. J. W. Davidson, first dragoons, and a party of nearly three hundred Jicarilla Apache and Utah Indi ans. The soldiers suffered severely, los ing twenty-one killed and eighteen woun ded. The Indian loss is unknown, but supposed to be very great. Another re port gives the number of soldiers killed at forty. A strong force, under command of Col. Cook, went in pursuit of the Indi an. The St. Louis republican mentions the receipt of some private despatches rela ting to these sanguinary battles, aud says that "the troops under Lieut. Davidson seem to have fought with great despera tion, and it has seldom happened that a command was so completely cut up. It cannot be otherwise than that the Indi- ans sustaiued a much greater loss." Kit Carson accompanied Lieut, Davidson on this expedition as a guide, "and, knowing the country as familiarly as the Indians themselves, he of course took good care uot to permit them to entrap the com mand in a perilous position." Twenty united States soldiers deserted their post at Fort Albuquerque on the 27th ultimo, taking forty of the best horses and ull the Colt pistols belonging to their com pany. Gov.

Esciu'sion on the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad. The opening of the tunuel on this road was celebrated on Monday last, by an ex cursion to Great Bjiid, which was at - tended by the employees ot the Uompaay, ana a numuer oi uivucu uests. me celebration, which was to have taken place the previous Saturday, had the weather not proved unfavorable, was ar ranged by the able and gentlemanly Su perintendent of the Road, Mr. D. H. Dotterer, under whose judicious man agement it was conducted iu a manner that reflected the highest credit upon him. The train left Seranton between 8 and 0 A. M., carrying somo 400 person?, of whom more than 100 were ladies. 'I hey were accompanied by the Seranton bras baud, whose excellent music gave an ad ditional charm to the occasion. The par ty was increased by constant accessions from the several stations oa the roadjaud after' passing through the tunuel, the train stopped for a short time, and we had au opportunity to examine this stu pendous work. All around were steep, rugged mountains, whose frowning brows and stony -hearts seemed to forbid the further advance of man. J3ut even these immense barriers havo been overcome, a passage 2,500 feet in length opened un der the mouutaia, and the iron horse now rushe-i triumphantly through amid the rock and wilderness which, but a short time since, presented such formida ble obstacles. About 1 o'clock we arrived at Great Bend, where we were welcomed with music by the brass band of that place. On leaving tho cars, a procession was formed, and the party proceeded to the 3 "Dusk House, where a bountiful dinner had been prepared by the landlord, 31 r. Carpenter, of which upwards of 500 person partook. 31uch credit is due to Mr. Jenks, under whoso supervision it was conducted, for his attention to the wants of the numerous guests. After dinner the party assembled in front of the Hotel, where, after a few in troductory remarks by 3Ir. Latiirope, of Seranton, letters from Geo. D. Phelps, President of the D. L. &. W.

From the AWny Journiil, May 1.3 Important Arrest of Counterfeiters---Recovery of $1,000 Bogus Coin. For some month past a large amount of spurious United Stctes coin has been put in circulation in Utica. The whole affair was enveloped in mystery until last Saturday, when the police made a descent upon aa old frame baildiag oa Third street, aau not only seized ?i,uuu m bogus coin, but caught three persons ia the very act of coiaing it. The parties who made the arrest were United States Marshal Mott and three policemen of Utica. The weather was quite stormy on that day, and there were but few per sons stirring about in that section of the city, ttbieh enabled the part' to get into the house unobserved. A gentle tap was given by one of the party on the door of a room in the rear part of the building. It not being promptly aaswered, aad hearing a slight movement inside, with one blow the door was forced in, and was thrown upright against the mantel-piece, when the officers rushed in and caught 3Ir. Yoories, his wife, and Dr, Way, not only in the act of manufacturing spurious com, but lound a large amount ot it on the table, around which they were at work. The party being secured, a thorough search was made, which resulted in their finding 1,100 in spurious coin, consist ing of 10c, 25c, 50c, and 85 pieces,part of which was ready for use, part in a rough state, and part not galvanized. They also found three dozen plater-of Paris moulds, a galvanizing apparatus, and all the smaller tools necessary for carr) ing on the counterfeit business. The party are almost strangers in Utica.

Removal of the Main Eonc in the Les: of a Eoy. John Baja, a lad 15 years of ago, son, of a widow lady of Allegheny city, had received, some six months ago, an injury of the right leg by a fall, inconsequence of which the whole shaft of the bone had become decayed. To save the limb Dr. Walter removed last week, while the boy was under the influenco of chloroform the main bone of the leg from the knee to the ankle by extirpation. Inc rcdihle as it may appear to the non-professional, that a limb could be saved aad be made useful by the removal of the whole of its main bone, still experience has tau-htl .k.t i.i :m i-!ji ? "I that new bone will be rapidly reccne in cnaanooa, ana that tb.s sii ape, length, and usefulness of the limb will be are- served.

This patentee takes gutta percha, gutta turban, gutta gireck, or catauiundi, or any of the substances having proper ties like these of such a hydro-carbon as gutta percha, and reduces them to frag ments by cutting, planing, rasping or grinding: hc then heats them in an iron vessel, stirring them frequently until they are reduced to a soft dough. The dough so prepared, is then allowed to rest some time without stirring, but tho heat is kept up for about au hour. After somo time thiss mass separates into two parts, the impurest remaining at the bottom. The purest part is thea takea out aad heated ia aa iroa pot or boiler for about half aa hour, at 250 deg. Fahreuheit, it beiag forcibly stirred all the time. It is then mixed with about 100 per cent, of soda ash, or any salt freely soluble in water, and volatilizible by a moderate heat, to which is added about 15 per cent, of tar oil, turpentine, benzole, or resin, and the whole is kept stirred and heated in the same vessel at about 175 deg. for 40 minutes longer. While it is still a doughy mass, it is rolled into sheets of different thickness, to be used as a subtitute for leather. The qualities of toughness and smoothness arc obtaiued by the applica tion of a high aad long-sustained temper ature. The shcct3 of artificial leather so made, arc, after this, exposed a short time to the air, then steeped for 12 hours in vats containing water. After this,thoy arc passed between smooth iron rolls, until they become soft and pliable, when they are again steeped twice in succesion, in vats of clean water, the last water be ing slightly acidulatod (moderately sour to the taste,) with sulphuric acid. After this they are exposed to the air and dried, and afterwards all the rough parts are polished down with pumice. Trouble. Read what tho Clinton Courant man says on this subject: Baby's got the mea sles, second boy is drooping; third one down on tho trundle bed, with dreadful cough is whooping. 3Iercury down to ze ro, woodpile some below it; man tries to be a hero, but feels he cannot 'go it.' Wife is busy washing, a host of dirty 'duds.' whilst ever anon a tear, falls silent in the suds. Husband rocks the cradle, 'second' on his lap, soothes the 'third' one with a kiss aud hits the fourth a slap. So from mel ancholy moaa.-, and starting, troubled dreaming, the tunc is changed to groans, stilL-d sobs and screaming. Patience all exhausted, he roughly speeds the rocking, and jolts the little sufferers, with a rude ness that is shocking. Confusion worse confounded! A neighbor opens the door and with voice and face astounded, says, 'Have you heard the price of flour?' No!' husband loudly halloes; 'what's the latest news?' 'Flour's thirteen dollars! twelve has been refused.' A scream! 'tis Sissy's voice: something comes athwart her. In she comes, all covered o'er with blood and dirty water, 'Old Brindle's gored the heifer, broke the yearling's thigh, knocked Sissy down and cut her, and scared a passer by.' Wife sits her down despairing, weary of her life; husband nothing caring, for the quadrupedal strife wonders whethr Job, the man of ma ny sores, when his wife bade him give up, led such a life in-doors. Meantime, the wealthy mother, sits in her easy chair, on its rich embroidered cover, mid comfort everywhere, and won ders what they mean these people that are poor prating of their troubles, which they think they endure. 'If they only had her trials knew what she underwent they'd think that all the vials of wrath were on them spout: which sets lis thiak iag, reader, that if rightly ostiaiatcd, one half of all our sorrows, are sadly overa ted. And the moral of our rhyme, tho' proseily it runs, is, never borrow trouble but take it a3 it comes. The Terrible Tragedy at Lynchburg, Va. He stated, yesterday, that 3Ir. John W.

She attempted to escape, but he rushed after her, and succeeded iu in flicting two other cuts. She staggered out of the house, fell in tho yard. His attention was then arrested by the chil dren of his brother, Dr. Lambeth, and he made an attempt to seize them, but was thwarted by a negro woman, who threw them over the pailing.

But the loss of blood had been so great before the Doctor's arrival that it was impossible to save her, and sho died in three quarters of an hour.

The correspondence of the London Times says that tho affair of the Black Warrior, so far from being settled, has been urged on with extreme violence by 3Ir. Soule, the American 3Iinister, and at present wears a threatening aspect. It is stated in a letter from Madrid, that 3Ir. Soule has demaaded the recall of the Captaia Geaeral of Cuba, and that an officer succeed him having full power to settle, upon the spot, such disputes as may arise with the American govern ment. It is also stated that he has de manded an immense amount of money by way of indemnity. The result of these demands is not known. The War. Austria and Prussia havo signed a treaty of alliance, offensive and defensive. The news from the Danube is interest ing.
