EXTRACTS FROM A PROSPECTUS, For publishing a Translation of the Vwe Codes Napoleon. SEVERAL gentlemen of eminence in the profession of the law, and others, who are equally well versed in the science of legislation, having advi sed me to translate from the French into Ihe English language the Five Codes Napoleon, l take the liberty of announcing to the literary characters in the United States of America, that I have completed the performance, which I am now employed in collating with the original, progressively wri ting its index. To those of my fellow citizens who have not had the oppor tunity of reading this work in French, which is so much, and 1 believe, de servedly admired every where,and es pecially in America and in England, whose systems of jurisprudence arc the subjects of emulation of every ci vilized community, 1 would observe, that it is on record, that Napoleon took more pride in this compilation of his than in all his other achieve ments. [Here follows several respectable testimonials.] The Codes will be contracted to be printed in two Bvo volumes, which, it is believed, will contain Irom 400 to 500 pages each. The types will be those which printers denominate pica, and the contract will stipulate for the paper to be good. The Volumes will be bound in calf-skin, anil endorsed. The price of the two volumes will be six dollars, payable on their delivery. JONAS FAUCHE.” Greensboro, Georgia, June 17. Notice.

Iron Mountain —This place is in Washington county, in this State, and is the most extraordinary store of iron ore that has yet been dis covered in any country. It would not probably be transcending the limits of truth to say, that it would supply the world v/ith this useful mineral for a long period of time. In appearance it bears a strong re semblance to native iron, and would yield on fusion 80, or perhaps 90 per cent. T here are other places that have been denominated iron mountains t such as thatof Traberg in Smoland, and two, the names of which we do not recollect, that have been dis covered in Lapland ; but none of these can be compared with the mountains of Missouri, neither in point of magnitude nor in quality of ore. It is a matter of astonishment that no foundry has yet been es tablished r.ovenient to this place; in its neighbourhood are many v.d uable mills, and there is evdiently no want of water power for the ap plication of machinery even of the largest construction. As there are few individuals who could com mand the capital necessary to be employed in this buisness, it would pernaps require a Company to car ry into effectual execution an enter prize of so much importance, and which could not fail in being amply productive. Os the success that would attend it, there cannot exist a doubt, and it is thought by many intelligent persons, that iron cas tings, See. might be exported advan tageously even to places where they are now maufactured. I he peculiar quality of the ore of which this section of country is the rich depository, is also worthy of attention. At a bloomery erected by Messrs. Beery & Kuggles, iron is produced of a quality greatly supe rior to any that can be imported, and is preferred by smiths, because it is worked with greater facility, and is found to possess in a very high degree the properties of steel. Axes, plough-irons and any addi tion of steel, are found nearly equal to those formed in the ordinary way. Thazrsw mountain is frequently visited by the curious traveller.— and by those who have contempla ted drawing on its vast store of wealth ; and at length it is stated, a Founderv and other works calcula ted to bring into operation the min eral resources of this district, are about to be erected. We do not vouch for the truth of this state ment, but a better prospect for the investment of capital is but seldom presented, and there can be no doubt, that if not immediately, it will very coon, be embraced.
