was not until within tho Inst thirty or forty
years that any remits of n really practi'cnl
nnd rucouraging charnctor wcro obtniucd.
Now that tho sewing mncbino lrns becomo
ono of tho most common nnd indispensablo
of onr modern requirements, it seems
strnngo that it who not thought out r.nd
perfected nt n much earlier date. JJeforo
tho invention of printing, or tho discovery
of America, or ovon tho steam engine nnd
magnetic telegraph had been thought of,
ono might havo expected n mncbino for
sewing. Weaving by the help of mechnni
cal contrivaucss has been for nges n well
known nrt, nnd is nt least ns ancient ns tho
timo of Homer, whilo sowing, till n very
recent period, has been exclusively per
formed by band. A century ngo nothing
was known of tho sewing mncbino in nny
form, nnd littlo moro than thirty yrare
havo passed sinco tho first mnchiuo which
could really sew well wns constructed. In
fact, until Klins Howe, in 18 H, invented
tho lock-stitch, mndo by a shuttle, om
broidery ivns tho object nnd end of nearly
every nltcmpt nt sowiug by mnchinery.
Every gnsat invention hns its growth, nnd
tho sowing mnchino is tho rcanlt of tho
thoughtful labors of mnny miuds, but its
nctunl nsefulness dates only from tho in
vention of Elias Howe.
At tho samo time it would appear that
on moro than ono occasion tho successful
result of his labors had very nearly been
anticipated in England. In particular, tho
records of tho Knglish Patent Offico con
tain tho specifications of a pntont granted
ns far back ns 1790, to ono Thomas Saint,
of tho city of London, for " nn o-itiro new
method of making nnd completing shoes,
boots, spaltcrdashos, clogs nnd other nrti
cles, by means of tools or machines, " in
vented by him for that purposo. Tho sheet
of drawings attached to this specification
illustrates, nmong other things, a mncbino
for "stitching, quilting, or sewing; " nnd a
working model which was recently con
structed by n firm of mnchino manufactur
ers, from tho drawings nnd details giveu in
tho specifications, shows that Thonins Snint
had nctunlly invented n most efiiciout np
paratu, although lto himself doos not seem
to havo had any idea of its roal industrial
A French patent, dated Februnry 4th,
1801, was taken out by Messrs. Stono and
Henderson, for a machino for " joining tho
edges of all descriptions of floxiblo mater
ials, " and which was declared to bo "es
pecially npplicablo to tho making of -wearing
npparcl, " bat tboro was littlo con
tnvanco in tho invention far less than
in that of Thomas Saint and it never
became generally known. In 1829 Henry
Bock patented an ombroidoring machine,
which was improved by Josno Helmnnn,
who, to a great extent, appropriated tho
honor of it, A poor tailor of St. Etionno,
in Franco, namod Ilarlholomy Thimmonier,
invented a wooden crochet sowing mnchino,
and patented itiu 1830, and tho merit of tho
invention having been socn by Ueaunier, n
Government engineer, a company was
formed, nnd a factory opened in tho Rno
do Sevres, in Paris, in which eighty of tho
wood on machines woro employed in mak
in g array clothing by contract. All prom
ised well, nntil a mob of nngry workmen,
filled with rago and jealousy, nttacked tho
establishment and compelled tho unfortu
nate tailor to tako to flight. In 1818, how
ever, he had improved his invention, mak
ing his machines of metal instead of wood;
another company boiug formed, and anoth
er work-shop opened ia Paris; but, in tho
courno of a few months that was also de
stroyed by tho rovolutiou, which then oc
curred. Edward Newton and Thomas
Archbold in 18 tl patented machinery for
producing ornamental stitching on tho
Lack of gloves, John Qrccnongh, in Amer
ica, patented a machine, intended for heavy
leather work, in 1812. In 1814, Mows.
Fisher it Gibbons, of Nottingham, invented
a machino for embroidering, which not
only satisfactorily answered tho expecta
tions of its makers, bat, although tho fact
woa unknown to them, was very near 1m
iug an efficient sowing machine. Thoso
gentlemen havo since acknowledged that,
at tho time, they had no intention of con
tructing anything of the Uttor description.
Their mncbino was, however, subdoqutntly
tucd for sowiug parpohcs, with tho addi
tion of a needle and shuttle arrangornont
tho manufacturers being Grover it Ilaker.
Such bitug tho history of such inventions
as preceded tho prcteut sowing machine,
ami prepared tho way for it, it is now gen
erally acknowledged that this practically
useful contrivance, a wo know it is, is in its
general principle nud leading character
istic, the result of tho genius of Elias
Howe. Mr, Howe was born at Spencer, in
Massachusetts, in 1819. His father was
a farmer and a small mill-owner, and, till
he was sixteen years of age, tho youth rts
mainod at homo, assisting his father nnd
receiving such an education as could bo ob
tained iu tho common schools of tho State,
lie was atllicled with a laoieucba which un-
I titled htm for much hard labor, nnd in tho
year 1H;(,' ho obtniiied the row-put of hm
imrouts to cintorn Inrgo workshop in l.ouiil,
in winch mnehinery for cotton mills wns
made, lint two years nftorwnrds, n liunu
rinl crisis ramu upon tho country; tho
I)wrll Mills wrru rliird; nnd young I own
wns throivn out of pinployinent. Ho found
work nt ('nmbriilgr, near lloiton, but in a
few months quittrd it, li'iviug nhtniurd a
place iu tlm shop of Ari Davis, n philo
sophical nnd innthemnlirnl instrument
maker. Mr. Hiwis was nn rcrrntrio tnnii,
but n thorough genius nnd a iruiarkubly
skillful mrolmnio-, nnd wIipii consulted by
iiiM-ntors, ho frequently snggpstrd ini
tKirtnut imprmpinrnts in their ninrhiiips.
In tho year I8;ll, n rich man, but n very
Iioo r invpnlor, ratno to his nhop with n
.nitling mnchino which would not knit,
nnd while Davis nnd his workmen worn ex

" I wish I could, " snid his visitor; " but

" I ran do it I ran mnko n sowiug inn.

" Well, if you enn, " romnrkrd tho other,
I will oiiNuro you nn indiipiindcnt fortune. "
These wonls worn uttered thoughtlessly
by Davis ; but tho conversation mndo a
(Ippii impresiun niton Howe, nnd fro.n tlmt
timo tho desiro to mnko n sowing mnchino
wns tho dream of Ins lifo. Hut it wns
somo timo before ho mndo much progress
towards tho nttninment of his with, ilo
coutinurd a journryninii " machinist, " nnd
mnrrird when ho wns twrnty-ono ; nud it
wns not until tho nddilionnl Inbor imposed
upon him by tho nnts of nn increasing
family urged him to greater ell'ort, Mint ho
began his experiments in real earnest. Ho
first ntteinptcd to mnko n junchinu with the
doublc-)ointed needle, but fniling iu tlmt,
ho nt Inst hit upon tho idea of a nccdlu
threaded nt tho point; nnd, iu October,
1SH, satisfied himself by n rough model
tlmt he could mnko n sowing stitch by
using two thrends nud n shuttle. Ho was
nt this timo living in poverty in n garret,
nnd his family would hnvo stnrvcd but for
tho goncrons nssistnnco of n friond who be
lieved in tho pmctibility of tho young me
chanic's idea. Tho nnmo of his old school
follow, Georgo Fisher, must, therefore, bo
ever associated with his own iu connection
with this important discovery ; for others
thought him visiounry, nnd without tho niil
which ho thus received his invention would
never havo been perfected. In December,
18 H, Howe, nccording to nrrnugemont,
took up his nbodoin thohouso of his friend,
nnd during tho winter wns nctivcly em
ployed in carrying out his idea. In April
ho sowed his tirbt perfect seam, nnd in July
ho sowed by his mnchino nil tho soams of a
suit of clothes for Fisher nnd another for
himself thus proving tho substantial
value of his contrivance.
Hut even in America, whero tho people
nro usually quick tondoptnn improvement,
the sowing mnchino nt lint mndo littlo pro
gress. Its cost was too great 250 dollars,
or, .C50. Tho tailors would not, or could
not buy it, nnd it seemed to bo enly a toy,
after all, to nmnso tho people. It was
patented however, on September 10th,
18 1C. Mr. Fisher had now ndvnnccd 2,
000 dollnrs, nnd no prospoct appeared of
nny return for his money. In thoso cir
cumstances, Mr. Howo determined to soud
his invention to England, nnd iu tho month
of Octobor, his brothor took ovor ono of
tho mnchincs to Loudon, which wns finnlly
sold to Mr. William Thomas, of Ghcnpsido
for .C250, with tho right to uso, iu his owu
business of corsot nnd Btny-mnker, as many
moro ns ho wished. It wns also verbally
ngreed that Mr. Thomas should patent tho
invention in England, and, if tho mnchiuo
enmo into uso, ho wns to pay Howo JC3 for
every ono sold. Ho also engaged to em
ploy tho inventor at n salary of 3 per
week in ndapting his machino to tho work
of stny-mnking. Air. Howo, havingacccptcd
this offer, sailed for England on tho 5th of
February, 1817. Mr. Thomas had mean
time taken out tho patent dated Decomber
1st, 184b Mr. Howo, however, had littlo
of tho success which ho had hoped for in
England. Ho wns constantly nt oxpenso
in connection with his invention, nnd re
mained very poor. Ho hnd loft Mr. Thomns,
and now with n fow tools wns engaged in
making his fourth mnchino. After thrco
or four months' work it wns fiuished, and
nlthough worth 50, he could get no oilier
for it. At last ho sold it to a working mnn
for 5. His first mnchino nnd his letters
patent being yot in his possession, ho pawn
ed them for 20, nnd took passngo for Now
York, whero ho nrrived in April, 1819, al
most without n penny.
Howo had now to eudnro tho ndditionnl
mortification of finding that, during his
nbsenco in England, his patont rights in tho
United States had boon infringed, nnd his
invention pirated by woalthy but un
scrupulous individuals, who seem to havo
supposed that his povorty would provent
ony ciTcctunl interference on his part with
their uujustifinblo proceedings, liut thoy
littlo know tho character of tho man with
whom they had to doai. Ho boldly took
tho caso into a court of law, whero, dospito
tho formidablo display of counsel and
scientific mon nrrayed against him, liu de
monstrated so clearly his solo right to tho
honor of his invention, that it was impos
sible to refuso a verdict iu his favor.
At this crisis, Mr. Howo fouud n friond
in Mr. G. W. Bliss, who ngreed to buy Mr.
Fisher's sharo of tho patent, and toadvauco
money for legal proceedings, provided ho
wns secured against loss by a mortgngo on
tho farm of Mr. Howo's father. Tho lather
consented, nud after much litigation it was
decided that Mr. Howo's patent was valid.
Appeals wcro made to tho highest tribunals,
but tho decisious iu his fnvor wcro not re
versed. It is only just, however, to say
that tho sowiug mnchino of tho present
time owes no small amount of its vnluo to
improvements iu tho feeding mechanism
brought out by Mr. J. 11. Johnson, Mr.
Allen B. Wilson, Mr, Isano M. Singer,
and others. Mr. Howo received from tho
Emperor Najxileou tho decoration of tho
Cross of tho Legion of Honor a short timo
before his death, which occurred on tho lid
of October, 1 807.
Tho publicity givon to tho legal proceed
ings adopted by Air. Howo for tho protec
tion of his patont rights, awakened general
attention, on both sides of tho Atlantic, to
tho iuuncuso advantages possessed by his
invention, nnd orders fur tho now mnchino
became so numerous that tho ouco poverty
stricken and almost friendless American
mechanic suddenly found himself nut only
famous, but also on tho high road to
wealth. Iu tho meantime his antagonists
had not been idlo. Perceiving tho enormous
vnluo of the prizo which had ho Inutuliz
iugly eluded their grasp, they commenced
taxing their ingenuity iu tho coustrutiou of
a machino which should bo cspiblo of pro
ducinif tho same rvlults as thoso obtaiued
I by'Howo'u iuveutiou, but without infring
ing upon tho details of Ins patent, Iu this
tnnuner onginnted Iho long nnd remnrknblo

America, where tho dollrioiiry of labor on
tho prut of woiiiou nud gills had long te
larded the development of many brnuehis
of uinuufaeturing imlerprir.o. hlvim nt tho
present lime, when upwards of -1,000,000
sewing mnehities are estimated as being iu
general tiso iu various parts of tho civlied
world, thpro npppnr uu indications of nny
decline in the rate of production.
With the general appoarauco of tho sew
ing machine iu its prcsoiit form, the public
ato tolerably familiar. Whatever may bo
tho principle on which it is rotistrui'lrd, it
consists of a small metal platform or table,
from one end of which rises nn arm. This
nrm, extending over tho platform, has at
its otti entity tho arrangements for alter
nately raising and depressing tho needle,
tho parts connected with tho seizing of the
thrend ami tho formntion thereby of n com
plete stitch being placed under tint por
tion of tho mrtnl pint form into which tho
needle descends. Tho whole is iot iu
motion by a wheel, placed at tho loft end
of tho mnchino, and worked either by hand
or by means of n treadlo, or by ateam
power, nccording to circumstances. Tho
three principal kinds of stitch formed by tha
sowing mnchiuo nro tho "lock-stitch," tho
" double-chain stitch," nnd tho " single
loop " or "chain-stitch." Tho "lock
stitch " is formed by two threads, tho upper
one being carried by a nccdlu with its uyo
nenr tho point. This ncedlo is driven
through the fabric, carrying tho thrend
with it. Tho ncedlo is then partially with
drawn, so ns to form a loop of the thread
underneath tho fabric. Through this loop
tho under thread is passed by menus cither
of a shuttle or a revolving hook or circular
needle, tho fortnor being tho most frequent
ly employed. Whon tho under thro d is
thus, either by shuttle or hook, pissed
through tho loop, the ncedlo is wholly.with
drawn, carrying up tho loop thro.id, nnd
with it tho under throad, forming a lock in
tho center of tho fabric. This description
of stitch wns first introduced in 1335 by
Air. Wnltcr Hunt, of Now York, but thero
being no npparntus for producing tho ncccs
Eary tonsion to tighten tho stitchos, tho
mnchino proved useless. In tho Fcwing
machines now in use, tho desired tension,
both of tho upper nnd lower thrends is
affected by a singularly ingenious arrange
ment, which, however, cannot bo proporly
explained without tho aid of drawings.
Tho " single-chnin stitch " is formed in
something of tho samo manner ns a
crochet-stitch tho needle, with a fino
hook nt tho end liko n crochet needle,
being passed through tho fabric, tho thread
being placed in tho hook. Tho hook is
thou withdrawn, carrying a loop of tho
thread through tho last previously formed
loops, so ns to interchain tho soveral loops
ono with nnothor. Tho " double-chain "
stitch is formed with two thronds. Tho
upper thread nnd noedlo nro tho snmo ns in
tho " lock-stitch" mnchiuo, but tho under
thread is worked by a loopor, which is of
curved form, having two oyos with a
groovo botweon thorn, in which tho thrend,
supplied from n bobbin on tho under side
of tho platform, lies. This providos for
tho constant supply to tho ncedlo of nn
open loop, which passos on tho iusido of
tho bond of tho looper. During tho descout
of tho ncedlo tho loopor in withdrawn in a
circular direction leaving n loop of its
thrend round both tho ncedlo nnd tho loop
of tho ncedlo thrend, which is still tight
against tho needle. As tho ncedlo is with
drawn, this loop, by tho friction of tho
thrend with tho fobric, bulges out, and
beforo tho oyo of tho ncedlo has nsconded
nbovo tho point of tho looper, tho latter
returns nnd passes n loop of tho undor
thrend through this ncedlo loop.
Alost of tho sewing mnchincs in gonornl
uso uro now providod with certain applian
ces or extra nn-nngomonts for special work,
principally tho invention of n Fronchmnn
named Chopin moro particularly for
hemming, tucking nnd binding. Tboro is
also a machino for button-holes, bosides
numerous others constructed for ccrtnin
descriptions of industry, such ns sowing
straw plait, tho soles of boots nnd shoos,
nnd tho liko. Thero is indeed scarcoly any
thing that tho most skillful nnd oxperionccd
sompstnm can perform with her noedlo
which cannot bo douo much bettor nnd
moio cheaply by tho sowing machino. As
regards speed, tho mnchino possesses nn
enormous ndvnntago over tho hand, being
nblo to mako from 500 to 800 stitchos per
minute, whilo tholnrgesl numbor which nu
oxport nccdlowotunu can mnko iu tho samo
spaco of timo is from twenty-fivo to thirty.
Alorcovcr, tho sowing machino nover bu
comos weary, but can continue producing
this enormously largo numbor of stitches
as long ns its owner ploases ; whereas an
hour or two would suffico to exhaust tho
strength of n sompstross endeavoring to
mnko thirty stitches per minute. At tho
timo of tho groat exhibition iu 18G2 it was
estimated that, nt tho lowest computation,
ono mnchino wns equal to fivo hand-workers
; but sinco that timo tho improvements
effected havo been so numerous nud of so
comprcheusivu a character that it may bo
said, without tho slightest danger of exag
geration, that ono machino iu tho hands uf
a skillful worker can do as much, iu n giv
on sinco of time, ns eight or ton ordinary
needlewomen. Scarcely loss important thnu
tho speed with which tho stitchos nro mndo
is thoir wonderful regularity nud porfqet
character. No human lingers, whuwevor
skillful, can equal, much less surjKiss, tho
work produced by a good machino in corn
potent bauds. William Paiteusox iu
