PETER KINEY, GEO. McMICHAEL. Light Street, July 17, 1856. The only Safe which, in every instance, preserved the entire contents at the late Extensive Fires. AT THE BURNING OF THE ARTIZAN BUILDJNGS, April 101b, and in the great fire in Market Street, May Ist, 1856, the gen uine HERRING SAVE preserved the Jewelry of George W. Sirams & Bro.; Books, Papers Sic. of Fisher & Bro. and Edward Semans & Co., after remaining exposed in the burning ruins for nearly Forty Hours, and proving conclu sively what we have always claimed for reat superiority over all saouri '•ln these fires, the HERRING'S SAFE, standing side by side with those advertised | as "warranted to stand 10 per cent, more fire than Herring's," came forth the acknowledg ed victor, not only preserving their contents in excellent order, but being themselves in a condition to go through another ordeal, while the boasted "Salamanders" of other makers were badly used op in every instance, and in aomecaseetheir entire contents completely destroyed.' To the public we would simply sty, that, during the fourteen years of the Herring's Safe has been before them, more than two tinudred have passed through accidental fires Without the occurrence of a single loss. We would, therefore, caution purchasers against the misrepresentation of interested parlies. The Herring'a Patent it the only Fire-proof Safe made in this city which is protected by a Patent Right, and we will guarantee it to resist more than double the amount of heat of any other Safe now known.

TREASURY DEPARTMENT^PA^) June 'ld , 1856 $ To the Commissioners and Treasurer of Colum bia County, KNTLEMEN:—Permit me to call your attention to the following provision in Ihe Act of 29th of April, 1844: ''lf any county shall pay into the State "Treasury its quota of tax' levied on the ad •'justed valuation, FIFTEEN days prior lo the "first day of August in any year, such county "shall be entitled to an abatement of Jive per "cent on the amount so paid." I am induced to send you this circular, not so much Irom the custom which has prevail ed in this office, but because of the anticipa ted difficulties between this and the first of August next. The large and pressing demands upon the Treasury, many of which cannot be postpon ed, may cause a resort to a temporary loan, (which is nol desirable,) unless relief is had in the usual quarter from Ihe comities. The credit of the State, as well as Ihe gen erous abatement she has allowed in case of prompt payment, will no doubt induce you to come to her relief I Be pleased to reply at an early day as to' your intention to comply with the suggestions of this Circular. Yery respectfully, HENRY S. MAGRAW, Slate Treasurer. June-14, 1856.

Around and through ihlit property there ore already anme 20,000 acres under cultivation, and its fertility has been established frotVijthe crops produced. Upon this subject it is easy to be fully satisfied. There is a ready cash market for ptoduce which is much better that/ trade. It is the CHEAPEST, as land of a similar quality is selling at much higher prices adjoining, and especially such as contains coal. 'THE COAL—This in particular is the Coal District, several veins underlaying the whol* property, ami the attention of miners, and thnso acquainted with coal lands, is specially called to It. It has the advantage of being the nearest tn the great lake market, with which it will be connected by the Bunbury and Erie Railroad now under contract and in Course of completion from Erie to Ridgsway, with de scending grade the whole way. The soil over bituminous coal is the best, lor instance Eng land and other c ounlties. The price per acre is trifling for the coal alone, as it will certain ly, in so favorable a location within a abort lime pay largely. This is important Us an immense cosl trade will soon oprn. Four coal companies huve already been started to work mil ea in the vicinity, and there ate now fifteen openings around St. Mary's. THK TIMBER, HtockhoMes"atso received. There is no reservation whatever either of timber or coal. It Is very valuable, and will pay for a great pait of the lar.d.

Energetic eiortions are also being made for the building of the Tyrone and Clear field, which also passes through this property. The effect of this upon trade, and general de. velopment, is well as the coal, may be imagined. The larg-o and flourishing town of Bt.
