After arriving Jersey City, having boon famished !i a pass by the polite and intelligent agent l oiladelpliia, Mr. Gat . Wo made the trip from Philadelphia to Newark, Which is about twelve miles tVorn New York, in la half hours. Newark Is a city of About 60,000 inhabitants. It boars same relation to New York as Wilmington doe* to Philadelphia. Immense amounts of niaclii • ■ r , carriages, leather, Ac., are manufactured here.

In about hour from starting we arrived at Denville, which is only a stopping place, and took stage seven miles to Boonton, One of the prettiest villages in tho U Boonton lias from 2,000 to 8,000 inhabitants depending solely for support on its iron works and nail factory. These stupendous works employ between three and four hundred .

He Rxiti Road Switch.—B elow will bo found the description of a newly invented Solf-Acting Rail Road Switeh, which wo copy llrom the Bostou Herald. The inventor, Mr. David II. Rickards, has already made so oral valuable inventions, ongst which is a valuable lock. These about being intro thc whole line of the Erie Rail Road. the consideration of the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Rail Road, who are always amongst the first to adopt improvements to save the lives of their passen chines we aro informed duced We recommend it Nkw Self-Actixo Railroad Switch.—A promising and important invention in railroad switches has attracted recently a considerable degree of attention from those interested in such mutters. It is supposed the track can.be chang ed by incans of machinery without the interven tion of a switch-tender,and that in such a way as tobe of immediate practical benefit. A frog is placed between the rails of the track, connected by lovers with the rails to be moved, and ns tho engine pauses over, a toggle is dropped, which, passing through a grove in the centre of I lie ft>8, ppresaing luttci'uliy upon tlic flanges or sub s of the groove, instantly, and with great precision etilicta the requisite change. If this inven tion can be Rucc .ssfully carried out in practice, then in the first place the requirnient of switch tenders is dune away and the safety of pusswn goix IVora accidents resulting from the careless Inefficiency of those appointed to attend tho switches is materially enhanced. This improvement is so constructed, that the engineer, by attending to hiaduty in relation to tbe switch, it becomes of no moment whether the track is right train approaches the result will lie the sumc. Ifinthcdar o proceed upon a ; it is miming kust night, the track diverging from the the engineer has but to drop the toggle, nnd il the switch is not correct it will be set right engine passes invention, assistance engine off on to proceed Letters Patent have been duly secured, and various models have been constructed ami ex hibited, admiration.
