Leather.--The Tallahassee Floridian has seen a specimen of kip leather, tanned in twenty days with dog-fennel preparation, and which the shoemakers there pronounce equal to the best French leather. The leather was prepared by Isaac Bierfield, of Newberry, S. C., who has a patent for the process, but asks very high prices for the privilege of using his discovery-three hundred dollars for an individual right, seven hundred dollars for a county, and ten thousand dollars for a State. The Floridian recommends planters in Florida, where dog-fennel grows abundantly, to gather and cure the weed, which is found to possess so valuable a property.--New Orleans Picayune, Nov. 27.
