Wool Spinning. Domestic Manufacture. The subscriber has in operation at his place of residence in the Borough of Wilkesbarre, two spinning machines, a Billy of fifty and a Jenny of sixty spindles, for the purpose of spinning Merino and Country Wool, under the superintendance of Dennis M’COMBS, a professed spinner of Wool, from one of the first Woolen Factories in the US. Merino Wool spun at 3 cents per cut. County Wool spun at 2 1/2 cents per cut. Persons wishing to have their wool spun on machines, by leaving their wool with the subscriber, (uncarded) would be preferred, as the spinner will give the necessary directions in what manner to have the wool carded, to make good work. (The price of carding to be added) As the subscriber has been at a very great expense in erecting his spinning establishment, and procures a good workman, he hopes to meet with encouragement from his fellow citizens. Benjamin PERRY.

Allen JACK, merchant, died in this town on Thursday evening. His death was occasioned by a fall from a scaffold to a new building, which he was erecting. He fell on Thursday morning, and languished in extreme pain until about 12 o’clock at night. It is supposed to have been an internal confusion that occasioned his death, as no fatal wound appeared externally. Thus has this worthy man, been cut down in the prime of life – full of vigor – and full of health. He was a valuable citizen honest, industrious and benevolent: and society will long mourn the loss of one of its brightest ornaments.

John BAILEY, died at Lehigh, whose death was occasioned by wounds received in blowing rocks.
