A METHOD of covering Roofs with Tin, Copper, or f^ier metal, acourdin|p to a principle ■Uugetlier new, and which arotds the sources of tiiilure inctdeijtal to the processes heretofore in use, has recently been recorded at the Patent Office.  The chief inrip^eetions in covering» of this kind is found in the play oecamoiMd around the fastenings by tite expani^ and ccmfnction of the metal { MR actM>n that m a shwt time ftever fwls to occasion leaks: This dtffiouHy the prindplea in use «ther leave untouched, or with considerable increase in the expense, only partially remove. fe^The method now offered to the public makes the expannon and contraction independent the ftst-enings, and not only renders the covering permanently water-proof, but can be afforded at leas than the usual price.  Apply to the agent, P. U. WARE, Charlottesville.  N. B. A patent for the same purpose was obtained a few years unce by the agent, but that he conmders as superceded by the method above noticed.

He will be governed by a principle of strict neutrality, with rqprd to the great poKtical partly which, at times, agitate thu countryi but will give a faithful synopMS of every event that may affisct the pubfic interest in any way. Being estab-KiAied at me seat of Government of the Union, it will not, necessarily, be his province to become the partisM of any man, or set of men, as the citizens of this Divtrict are debarred from the privilege of legislating in the councils of the nation.  TheC ATBoue JocKHAi. will Calmly, but strenuously, support the cause of tmth, and give a clear and lucid exposition of the doctrines and principlea of the Roman Catholic Church. The Retunoun Tk-partment will be conducted under the advice of the Catholic Clergy of this District, and will receive the contributions of the Clergy of all parts of the coun-tiy.  For the promotion of Litenditre and Seienee, the Editor will avail himself of communications from the friends of the JevmHAi., and such other articles hs may meet his own eye, which he may think of sufficient importance and usefulness to be republished.  The jfiinpt Department will be composed of a faithful history of events, as they occur in our own Distric^ and a judicious selection of forei^ and domestic intelligence, interspersed with mteresting anecdotes and lively incidents.  Tlie oppressed situation of Ireland, which occupies our heart-felt sympathies, claims, and will receive, our decided and constant attention. The eariiest information will be obtained, and circulated through the columns of the Joubitai, among the people of this country, and original and selected es says will always be found, calculated to arouse our fellow citizens to úd unhimpy and shackled Erin in regaining those rights, of^ which her citizens have been deprived by a most unjust «nd unnatural un ion.  Having thus briefly stated the manner in which the JouBWAL will be conducted, and the principles by which it will be governed, Uttie remains to be said, by the Editor. The Jovbkai. will be established here, that the mild and genial rays of the Catholic religion may diverge, as from a great centre, and penetrate every portion of our happy country. To eniü>le him to accomplish this object, it is necessary that the friends of the cause, in all places, should exert themselves in increasing its circulation, and yielding it support Trusting that such will be their desire, iJie Editor thinks it unnecessary to urge ita importance upon their mimls.  The Catbohc Jooairii. will be printed en an imperial sheet, fine paper, with handsome tjrpe, and delivered to subscribers at Three DoUare per annum, payable on receipt of the first number.  It is propos«^ to commence the publication about the first August, Or sooner, should a sufficient patronage be received. It is hoped that all gentlemen wlra intend to become nibscribers, or who will kii»lly undertake to collect them, will furmsh them by that time, to enable the Editor to make an estimate of the number of copies to be struck off. A discount often per cent will be made to any person be<»ming responsible for ten subscribers.  A. F. CUNNINGHAM.

To the dti-sens of Washington, in particular, he would appeal for the required patronage, entertaining a well ground-ert hope, that in a population of its extent iukI sfrfrll, there may be found enough to sustain the pOfn, and derive a gratification in return from its perasal« Tiie seat of the General Government is tlie grand fbcat of attraction, to which all eyes are direct dor^i the sessions of Congress, for information of »bat ocewa araung the delegated wisdom of the nation.

This fellow, before he left the neighboriiood, committed several atrocious acts on persons and property, and I am^ inclined to believe that he waa encouraged by some bad persons, and perhaps now in tbe emslfjyment of some scoundrel, and passing as their proper^ or as a free man, as he is acquainted with such villains in, and out of the neighborhood. He was seen last fiUI on board ol a snudl vessel, in Alexandria, D.
