THE DKED SCOTT CASE.
The editor of the Huntsville (Ala.) Berne
crat, who was present. in the Supreme Court
Teem, when the opinions of the Judges were
rendered in this case, refers to an important
deciseee of Lord Stowell in England, and a
correspofideAce between Lord S. and Judge
Stort touching its point, an extract from
wfelch was read by Mr. Justice Nelson- in the
opinion renttorid by him. This corresposdence
represents Judge Story as entirely concurring
wHh Lard Stowull with reference to the tem
porary sojourn on soil where slavery is not re
cognized by the laws of a slave residing else
where. Wo make the following extract from
the article of the Democrat :
"We were very much pleased with the opin
ion of Judge Nelson, of New York, as well for
Its legal ability and lucid style as the boldness
with which he, a Northern man and citizrn of
a Black Kepublic&n State, bandied the subject
of slavery, and pronounced views adverse to
the prejudices and sentiments of bis section.
Ke quoted an extract from a letter of Judge
Story to Lord Stowell, in reply to a letter of
the fatter sending bis decision in a case similar
to4he Dred Scott case, which completely takes
the wind out of the sails of the Black Re
publicans of Boston, where Judge Story resid
ed, aad, doubtless, proves a disagreeable sur
prise to most of them ; for it presents Story
rerttit Curtis. It seems, that Judge Story was
accustomed to write, at least once a year, to
Lord Stowell, sending him a copy of his judi
cial decisions, which the latter duly recipro
cated. At length, a case arose in the English
Court, (of which Lord Stowell was Chief Jus
tice) where a Jamaica slave was carried by bis
master to Ecgland for temporary residence, and
was subsequently taken back to Jamaica, and
he brought suit for his freedom, and the infe
rior Court decided against his right to freedom
and in the Appellate Court, Lord Stowell, in
behalf of a majority of the Court, affirmed the
judgment below. Lord Stowell sent his decis
ion to Judge Story, who delayed replying so
long, that Lord S. again wrote to bim, express
ing regret at not receiving a reply and a hope
that their pleasant correspondence, of so many
year's standing, would not cease. Judge Story,
then, replied, expressing his entire approval of
Lord Stewell's decision and the judgment of
the Court, and adding that, if a similar case
should present itself to bim, he wonld give a
similar decision. This opinion of Judge Story
being extra-judicial is, of course, not authori
tative, but, as the opiuion of a man pre-eminent
as a judge and legal writer, it is entitle!
to great weight, and will, no doubt, have its
isJueuce in correcting public opinion at the
North, particularly in Boston, if blind fanati
cism does not completely ignore the memory of
his virtues, talents and learning."
The Democrat also refers to an en dit in the
Washington circles with reference to the prob
able successor of Chief Justice Tanev in the
event of his death or resignation during the
term of the present Administration.
The removal of Judge Taxet from the Su
preme bench 'could not be looked upon as less
than a national calamity. But in such event
we can not think of a gentleman better quali
fied to fill his place, or one who has already
proved himself to be a more accomplished and
profound jurist, and who more correctly un
derstands the true theory of our Constitution
than Judge Campbell.
"It was reported, that the Chief Justice in
tended this opinion to be the last crowning act
of bis judicial life, and would resign immedi
ately after its delivery ; but one of his brethren
os the Bench informed us, that he had no inten
tion of resigning, and altbough physically
feeble, his memory was ready and retentive, and
his intellect as unclouded as ever. Even at his
advanced age, he has no superior on the Bench.
His exalted judicial career fully vindicates the
wisdom of Gen. Jackson in appointing him to
succeed Chief Justice Marshall.
" It is said in Washington circles, that, in the
event of Judge Taney's death or resignation,
during Mr. Buchanan's Administration, it is
probable Alabama will be honored with the
appointment of Chief Justice in the person of
Judge John A. Campbell. The manner in
which Judge Campbell's judicial talents and le
gal attainments are spoken of by the Supreme
Court Bar and others in Washington, is a just
source of pride to every true Alabamian. Some
who stand at the head of the Bar speak of him
as 'the first man on the Supreme Court Bench,'
notwithstanding be is the youngest member of
the Court, except, perhaps, Judge Curtis. His
opinion in the Dred Scott case is said to be a
rich mine of judicial and historic lore, sound
in legal loic, well sustained by precedent, and
furnishing the complete history of slavery, in
Its European as all as its American aspect, in
the shortest space, of any dissertation or decis
ion extant. We shall look with great interest
for its publication, with the hope of giving our
readers the benefit of its perusal. It will e
remembered that Judges Campbell, Wayne,
Grier and Daniel did not read their opinions in
BBAKCH BAILKOAD TO XJE5KABK.
The following communication from a citizen
" of Denmark, Madison county, discussing a
question of great interest to the citizens of
that section, merits the careful attention of the
people of Memphis. It is proposed to build a
branch road from Denmark either to the Mem
pbto and Ohio, the Somerville branch of the
Memphis and Charleston Railroad, or to the
Mississippi and Tennessee Central Railroad,
Such a branch as the one proposed would prove
a very important feeder to whatever road it
may unite with, and the generous rivalry of all
should at once be excited to secure it to eitter.
Deacaark is situated in one of the most fertile
aad wealthy agricultural districts in Western
Tenuessee. It could not therefore fail to bring
a heavy business to the road which shall se
cure the branch to unite with it. We invite
attention to the coamumcatioE :
Per the Memphis Appeal.
Messes. Emtobs: As the subject of Rail
roads is at this time attracting much of the
public attention, will you allow me, through
the columns of your paper, to bring to notice
a project, in which the enterprising citizens in
and about Denmark feel a living Interest. Re
cently a large and enthusiastic meeting was
held in the town of Denmark, to consider the
practicability of connecting that place, by
Railroad, with the Memphis and Ohio Road,
the Central Road, or at Somerville delegates
were appointed to visit the different sections,
' who have reported that the project meets with
much favor and encouragement. Denmark is a
healthy location, with two flourishing schools,
affording advantages for the education of young
men and ladies surpassed by no place in the
Western District, and surrounded by a rich
section of country, to whose citizens may be
ascribed as much enterprise, integrity and in
telligence as any other section of the country,
and as an evidence of the fertility, richness
and value of its soil, it may be remarked that
at the recent assessment, the landed property
in the civil district adjoining Denmark was
valued at about two millioni of dollars. The
farmers in that section, now, have to use the .
common roads, which in this country are pro--Terbial
for being impassable during the season '
hen thev are most needed to carry offto mar
ket the products of their farmers, beside the
utter Impracticability of transporting sucu
articles as corn, fodder, wheat and otner pro
ducts, which can well be spared from a farm,
and go to swell the importance of even a large
At this day it is too late to speak of the im
portance of Railroads to every section of the
country through which they are constructed,
not only giving to the farmer cheap facilities
for market for the Burplus product of his labor,
but affording constant and frequent communi
cation between the different sections, and there
by give vitality and vigor to every branch of
business. Thus it is that when any portion of
the people are deprived of its benefits, a strug'
gle is made to put them upon a footing with
those more favored. While the citizens of Mem
phis are rejoicing over the completion of the
" Memphis and Charleston " Hoad, (with whom
we rejoice) which is to carry the waters of the
Mississippi, by the power of the " Iron Horse,"
to the Atlantic, the modest Danes only de
sire Memphis to stretch out her herculean arm
but a few rods farther and give but a slight
pull, and they will become more identified ai
one r tople in interest, as they are now in sym
pathy and feeling. What say you ?

The New Orleans Picayune says:
" Conspicuous among the recently erected
religious edifices in this city, is the new Jew
ish synagogue on Carondelet street, between
Julia and St. Joseph streets. It stands out,
bold and classic in its outlines, and challenges
the admiration of every pisser by. Its beauty
is of that kind wh'ch is derived from simplici
ty of style and massivrness of structure, and
which is always a relief and pleasure to the
eye. The mam body of the building is 85 feet
long by 63 feet in width, and in front there is a
portico of 13 feet, supported on massive col
umns, which rest on a granite base. From the
buttresses across the whole building, run gran
ite steps, and the ceiling of the portico is in
marble mosaic In the synagogue there are
fourteen windows, twenty-eight feet high by
seven feet wide, and between the floor ana ceil

galleries supported on Corinthian columns,

for the minister and sexton. These are uni

completed, the whole of the improvements will
cost about $75,000. The ground in front of the
building is to be cncisscd witn an ornamental
iron fence, which will add greatly to its gene
ral appearance. It is expected that the syna
gogue will be completed in the course of tw"o
weeks, and in all probability the consecration
ceremonies will be performtl on the last day
of the present month."
The Mtlhod'ut Protestant, in relating the

"A widowed mother, with several fatherless
children, were dependent on his efforts for their
support. By his greatest efforts he could but
just provide the very necessaries of life for
Dimseli and tnese. His summers were occu
pied in clearing land, or digging among the
green roots to raise a crcp, and his winters in
teaching school, in the ruae round log school-
bouses, with puncheon and clapboard floors
and roor, sticic cnimneys, split Jog bencnes,

months to chop, log and burn off the timber,
to nrenare for a wheat crop, nrocurinir a small
Indian pony and very old saddle, and a pair of
saddle-bags, partly on credit, arrangements
were made by which the care or the widowed
mother was left with others of her children,

preacher, he set but for Conference. Here is
his picture, just then: He ivas nearly twenty-j

In close proximity to the ground, as he rode
along. His dress-coat bad once been of blue
broadcloth, but was now extensively patched
with blue satinett. It was of the old-fashioned,
narrow-tailed species, and loo short in the

nett, made originally for a dress-coat, but too
large. It was also patched and thieadbare.
His hat was a very heavy-bodied white wool
hat, napped with fur, and had a brim about
four inches wide. From under this heavy hat
hung carelessly his long red hair. He was
very awkward in hia manners, and green in his
appearance. Rather a dull looking chance for
an itinerant preacher. But his heart was pet

says that on the 16th ulu, a daughter of Mrs.
Shipp, a widow lady, residing near Milltown,
in Chambers county, had been on an errand to
a neighbor's house, and, while ie turning, was
attacked by a negro boy, the propeity of Mrs.

failing in his hellish design, deliberately beat
her bead with rocks until he thought she was
dean, and leu ner weltering in her gore, bbe
was found, conveyed home, and was still alive
up to Tuesday evening, but there was very lit
tle hope entertained of her recovery. The boy
being arraigned by the neighbors, confessed his
guilt, and stated that he intended to kill her to
avoid detection. He was taken to Lafayette
immediately, and lodged in jail. Tbfe Circuit
'Court being in session, a Grand Jury was im
panncled to investigate the matter, and were
engaged in that business when the Herald waa
put to press. The girl was about tenyears old.

to Cahaba is a fixed fact, and the whole road
will be put under contract as soon as the Board
of Directors act upon the Report oi the Engi
neer. The completion of the toad to Cahaba
will be hailed with joy by every citizen at all
interested in the completion of the road to the
Alabama river ; and the citizens of Cahaba
and vicinity deserve much praise for the active
exertions used by them in securing ample means
to complete the road to their thriving town.
We hope to be able to take a ride through on
the Marion and Cahaba Railroad to the town of
Cahaba by the first of November next.

From Washington. We clip the following
telegraphic dispatches from Washington, which
we find in the St. Louis papers of the 2d inst.:
Washington, March 31. Instructions to
Gov. Walker are full, clear and explicit, and
in them are quoted the exact words of Mr. Bu
chanan's inaugural, viz: "It is the indispensa
ble duty of the government to secure to every
resident inhabitant free and independent ex
pression of his opinion on his vote." In this
the Cabinet cordially concur, and they and
those who will shortly administer the affairs of
Kansas, believe there is nothing to prevent such
a result in the adoption of the State' Constitu
tion, as the Legislative Assembly, at their last
session, repealed that portion 6t the election
law which required a challenged voter to take
an oath to support the fugitive slave law.
Gentlemen who have made inquiry relative
to this subject, have been assured that the ad
ministration and Gov. Walker will endeavor to
carry out their promise in good faitb, being
fully impressed with,the importance of the re
sult. Notice has been given by the British Post
Office of the recent establishment of packet
communication with China, in connection with
the overland mai's. The mails for China will
accordingly be made up at the London Post
Office on the 20th and2Sth,as well as the 4th
and 10th of each month.
Washington, April 1. The administration
has initiated none of the proceedings in Kan
sas having in view the election of delegates
preliminary to the formation of a State Consti
tuti n, but with the intention and desire to ter
minate the distracting question of Slavery,
will assist in carrying forward the meas- re
which has been commenced iu the Territory for
that purpose, leaving the people at large, with
out any reference whatever to their political
divisions, to settle it by a free and untrammel
led vote for themselves. It having been re
peatedly asked how independent suffrage can
be exercised if the laws of the Territory are to
be regarded as valid, the reply, from the best
sources of information is, that the lav provid
ing for the election is a fair one, as it is expli
cit in declaring that all free white male citi
zens of the United States, over twenty-one
years of age, residents of the Territory on the
first of April, shall be entitled to vote for dele
gates to the Constitutional Convention. This
is to be administf red without any regard what
ever to test oaths.
Gov. Walker, and Secretary of State, Stan
ton, have repeatedly said, their efforts in ac
cordance with the views of the Administration
will be to receive a fairexpression of the opin
ion of the people of Kansas, while they will
cheerfully abstain from any act which could be
construed into partiality to one side orthe other.
Whichsoever way the citizens decide, the Ad
ministration will be content.
The Completion or the Memphis and
Charleston Railroad. We copy the fol
lowing from the Chattanooga Mccrtiser, of
the 2nd inst.:
The great event of the pst week waa the
laying of the last bar of iron on the main
trunk of the Memphis and Charleston Rail
road. Whether considered in a local, commer
cial or national point of view, this is, indeed,
a pplendid triumph of the spirit of improve
ment in the South. In less than four years, a
first class road of nearly 300 miles in length
has been carried to successful completion, and
the company left in a healthy financial condi
tion. This is the first iron union of the At
lantic wi h the Mississippi within the limits of
the Southern States, and we cannot but look
upon it as the dawn of that career of prosper!

the unsurpassed richness of her soil, her mines
and her forests. It is difficult to conceive of
the magic effect upon the commercial relations
of this section, occasioned by the opening of
this new channel of trade and travel. The
convergence of the Virginia and East Tennes
see system of Railroads, and of the South
Carolina and Georgia Railroads to connect
with this Western line at Chattanooga, must
inevitably make it one of the most important
features oi tne ureal nziuc ivuiway, ana in

gets under successful operation. Indeed a sep
arate track will soon become a mailer or ne
cessity, as the business of the two Roads can
not be promptly transacted upon a single line.

THE SPANISH-AMEHICAN THEATT.
THIS CONVENTION MADE IN WASHINGTON BT
XnE CENTRAL AND SOUTH AMERICAN MINIS
TERS. We, the undersigned, ministers plenipoten
tiary and cbargea d'affaires cf the Spanish
American republics, having assembled in the
city of Washington, on the 8th day of Novem
ber, 1850, for the purpose of considering the
dangerous condition in which our respective
republics stand, as well on account of the doc
trines subversive of International law which
are extending in this part of the world, as on
account of the isolation in which all the afore
said republics have maintained themselves up
to the present time, depriving them of the power
of opposing to their enemies the resistance
which would be the result of closer relations
between all the Spanish-American people and
governments, and for the purpose of giving to
each one and to all of these republics the con
sideration, the weight, the power, and the re
spectability belonging to them, so as to assure
their internal peace and their complete and in
violable independence, agree tub spt ratis (in
hope of ratification) to propose to our respec
fiYf !overnments the following treaty of alli
ance or confederation between all the Spanish
American republics :
1. All the republics guaranty to each other
their independence and sovereignty, and the in
tegrity of their Territories, not permitting the
formation on the frontiers, in. the ports, or in
any port o' a republic, of expeditions, enlist
ments, armaments, or conspiracies against the
government existing in one orthe other of them;
and if it 6hall occur that any emlgrenta or re
fugees in one of these republics shall abuse the
asylum and hospitality conceded to all, by pro
moting disturbances ana aiarm m lue neigo-
boring countiies. the government of the repub
lic in which such abuse shall be committed,
shall expel said emigrants or refugees from
the point in which they may cause tbese evils,
without the necessity of the menaced govern
ment requiring such a measure.
2. Each one of tbe governments of the allied
countries binda itself to consider and to treat
as piratical any expedition that may bs made
against one or against several of these repub
lics, whether these expeditions be formed by
the citizens of the invaded republics, or by
foreigoers unautborued oy tbeir own govern
ments to make war in conformity to thegeneral
custom of civilized nations.
3. All the governments of the allied peoples
engage themselves not to cede nor alienate to
j any foreign Power any part of their territory.
4. ibey pine memseivs to boia ana regard
as acts of usurpation tbe decrees or a power
created in any of tbe Spanish American States
by the aid of a foreign force, invited or admit
ted tn take part in its intestine quarrels, and to
treat the invitation of such force as the crime
of high treason.
5. They bind themselves to lend mutual aid
to each other, and to resist with such force and
resources as each of the allied republics may
have at its disposal, in tbe defense of such as
may be threatened with invasion or with any
act of violence on the part of a foreign enemy.
6. Holding that the enemy of any one of the
allied States is to be considered as the enemy
of all, none of these States shall in any event
afford an asylum or refuge to tbe enemies of
any of them, nor shall maintain relations of
any kind with such enemies, excepting such as
may be held in a state of war, so long as the
btate attacked may not bave adjusted peace
with its enemies.
7. In questions between one or other of the
Spanish American republics, all the rest shall
"abstain from taking any part in favor of or
against tbe contending parties, leaving to them

Special dispatch to the New Tort Daily .Times
Washington, March 26. It has escaped
me nonce or peopie iiere, as it was not regard
ed for tbe moment &B bavin? anvrinlitiral iir.
nificatice, that the President, notwithstanding
Ibenressure or public business unon him fmm
J all directions, had taken opportunities of fre
quent and lengtuy interviews with Air. Walker
duriRgthe past fortnight, which are now un
derstood to have had reference to Kansas. Mr.
Buchanan had, probably, made up his mind
previous to tue auvenc or ex-UOV. lieary,
wfiom he would appoint in his place, and hence
the intimations that were thrown out that a
statesman of the first order of talent and en
ergy would be chosen, and that opportunities
of higber distinction would be afforded in Kan
sas, than could be enjoyed by any other ap-
puiiucc ul ui5 auiiuuisirauon.
It seems to be the common supposition that
Mr. Walker is entirely identified with the ex
treme Southern interest. This is not tbe case,
and scarcely ought to be charged against the
man who was chosen to the United States Sen
ate, from Mississippi, as the opponent of Mr.
Poindex'er, in the very campaign in which the
latter gentleman stumped the State under the
Palmetto flag, as the advocate of South Caro
lina nullification! Mr. Walker's course, at
that time, met with tbe approbation of every
union man turouguour. me land. His standard
was tbe nag or tbe Union, which .he wore
around his) waist, in which costume he de
nounced disunion as treason, in every prin
cipal town and village of his adopted Southern
Robert J. Walker, the son of Judge Walker
one of the Judges of the Supreme Couit of
the United States was born in Pennsylvania,
and, I bslieve, not far from the home of Mr.
Buchanan. He studied law under his own
father, and .practiced bis profession at Pitts-
ourgu, wnere ne married a daugbter or i-ranic-lin
liache of Philadelphia, and a grand-daughter
of Benjamin Franklin. The first nomina
tion of Andrew Jackson for 'the Presidency
was made by young Walker, shortly after he
was aumittea to tbe bar, at a convention or
the Pennsylvania Democracy. After his emi
gration to Mississippi he became identified
with Texan Independence, but he took no lead
ing part in national matters until the declara
tion of South Carolina in favor of-nullification
excited his zeal in behalf of the Union.
Walker was first reouested bv Mr. Polk to
enter his Cabinet as Attorney-General, that
post being deemed most In accordance with bis
tastes ; but subsequent events transferred him
to the Treasury Department. He then inaugu
rated the "Revenue," as distinguished from the
" Protection " tariff system, and drew up and
reported the tariff of 1346. it was a bold
measure, reducing duties more than one-half,
on an average, and that at a time when the
country was involved in a war. and in oonosi
tion to the views of the commercial, moneyed
anu manufacturing ciaBBes.
Un tbe passage of the bill. Mr. Evans. Sen
ator from Maine, and considered tbe financial
leader of the Whiga, declared, in his place,
that the revenue of the next year would not be
$12,000,000. Daniel Webster left a memo
randum with the clerk of the Senate, that It
would not produce $14,000,000. Abbott Law
rence ar.d the barking Interests of this city and
xv ew England considered tbe policy as
structive. Walker's recorded estimate was
it would give, in the first year, $30,000,000. It
gave $29,000,000 and some hundreds of thou
sands, and has gone on increasing until it has
reacbed its present prodigious amount.
Walker is tbe only Cabinet oliicer wbo bas
had his reports printed abroad. Sir Robert
Peel had them printed for the benefit of the
House of Commons, and he has the honor of be
ing the only financial minister whom the world
has produced, who has advanced Government
Stocks, and maintained them above par, dur
ing a foreign war, and wbile it waa borrowing

Woman in Search or a Husband. Th
subjoined; in a lady's handwriting, has been
sent us for publication. As it suggests to peo
ple who have marriageable daughters, and wish
to dispose of them, quite as effectual a method
of effectipg their object as sending them to
fashionable parties, we have thought that, as
chroniclers of new inventions, we had no right
to witbbold it from tbe public :
" Tbe season of Lent bas arrived to put a stop
10 tbe gaieties or tue winter, uur rasbionabi
young ladies have now time to reflect upon th
past few months; and bow must the soul of any
sensible one among tbem sicken at tbe remem,
brance of past frivolity the evenings spent in
dissipation the daytime rendered unfit for any
useful employment. Not only the reckless and
foolish have passed their time thus, but young
ladies or great loveliness or disposition, or warm
bearts and tnougbtrui minds, now is ibis pos
sible ?A How is it that a serious, affectionate
mother can encourage her daughter to thi
waste of time and health, and the pure-minded
girl can acquiesce? What is the reason of this
state of things ?
"The plain fact ia this, young ladies are sent
into Bociety mat tney may be seen and married.
bociety is a market for young girls. Marria
is recognized as the only proper sphere of life
lor woman ; men insist upon tbis fact. Moth
era wish to do the best thing possible for their
daughters, and if marriage is the best what
wonder that tbe poor parent exerts herself to
attain it for her daughter. She sends her into
the world: she maneuvers as far as nubli
opinion will allow, to secure for her daughter a
good match. All mothers art not successful,
and season after season is spent by the poor
girl in the vain effort to gain a husband. How
sad how pitiful 1
" Is marriage necessary for woman's happi
ness? If so, let her have a fair chance with
man. Let all this be done openly; let parents
invite such individuals as they think suitable
for their daughters to their own houses, for the
avowed purpose of forming acquaintances with
regard to matrimony; let ladies not be afraid
to show their preferences of some persons over
others. Many a modest young man would then
gain a wife to whom he otherwise would never
dare to propose, and many a girl would gain a
husband she loves instead of taking in despair
one to whom she is indifferent. If woman had
the confidence that it. an possesses, that she
could be married if she choose, she would think
less on the subject ; she would be a better
daughter; a better friend, and have time to at
tend to housekeeping duties and other things
suitable to render her a good wife. Then few
but tbe frivolous would go to balls or large
parties.'' M Y. Post.
Dby Goons. The past week has been a busy
one, especially in auction sales. On Wednes
day last, Van Wyck, Townsendii Warrens sold
a line of Koechlin's jaconets, organdies, and
prints, and a large invoice of silks of the im
portation of Payen & Co. The printed goods
sold low, jackoneta bringing from 17 to 23
cents, and prints 17 to 13. Most of tbe silks
were of old styles, and brought all they were
worth. Whatever was new and at all desira
ble, was taken quickly at full prices.
On Thursday and Friday. Messrs. Uenkard
& Hutton made one of their very attractive
sales at r-oster;a,amt bad tbe attendance of the
largest buyers from this and neighboring cities
A fine lot of Steinbach's jaconets was sold
from 24 to 271 cents for the finest goods, and
21 to 24 for secpnds. Plain colored bareges
went low, bringing about 2021c. for the low
est number of Lupin's goods, and from that
Plain delaines in mode colors did not sell
well ; but what are called high colors realized
fair prices. Most of the bombazines were
passed, the demand for these, goods being ex
ceedingly limited. The ribbon sale on Satur
day was not large enough to test the market
but yesterday Messrs. Van Wvck, Townsend
tc Warren held a. large sale of 2,000 cartons of

Printing Prf.s? We find the following de
scription of a mechanical feeder for printing
presses in the Scientific American:
" In its operation there is no checking or re
versing tbe ordinary movements of tbe press
A double or twin ' set of fingers, which shut
against each other, are so arranged as to grasp
the back or tail end of tbe sheet before it leaves
the printing cylinder.and after the first impres
sion is lateen, me sneer, tnus nem last wbile
the cylinder continues to revolve, is drawn
in again for tbe second impression, and
thus tbe feeding the sheet by hand the sec
ond time, or fifty per cent of the labor
now required, is saved, and practically, the
sheet is printed on both sides at once two
forms instead of one being placed upon the
press.' Nor, it seems to us does the improve
ment end here. The difficulty of feeding the
heets in the firsj place by machinery is not
Insurmountable. It can be done bv cutting
tbem irom a ron, 11 in no oiuer way, anu tben
1 1 . 1 1 . 1 1 . . . "
the feeding would necessarily be more accu
rate than it can be by hand. Spoiled sheets
from irregular reeding, as well as " packets,"
would be almost unknown; tbe full speed which
the press Is capable of could be maintained,
and uniform "register" and uniform work would
be the rule. Thus, too, folding and counting

What we Drink. It appears from the re
port of Secretary Guthrie, of the Treasury De
partment, that during the year ending June 30,
1856, 8,343,370 gallons of wine, spirits and
malt liquor have been imported in this country.
The total value of these drinkables is $6,176,
939; a snug little liquor bill for Uncle Sam to
foot up. Brandy, we regret to say, forms the
largest item in the bill ; 1,715,717 gallons have
been consumed at a cost of nearly $3,000,000.
The grain spirits Imported fall a little below
brandy in quantity )1J82.132 gallons) but much
below in value, (S372.27C). Nearly a million
of "other spirits-" besides are consumed at an
expense of $278,000. On the ther hand we
are glad to see that claret and other wines flow
in a wholesome stream, thus indicating a grow
ing inclination for continental beverages and
Over a million and a half gallons of claret
and nearly 700,000 gallons of other red wines
were imported, at an aggregate cost of about
SS50,000. We have drank also 1,100.000 of
English an 1 Scotch ale, which Is another en

The importations of Madeira, Port and Sici
ly wines have fallen off; the supply of Sherry,
however, has increased from 4,685 gallons in
1848, to 400,000 gallons ii 1856.
The recent modifications in the tariff will un
doubtedly increase Uncle Sam's consumption of
imported drinkables. It is to be regretted, we
think, lhat alKdatfes on light wines, &c, had j
not been removed ; no lesislative sten would
have so hastened the growth of temperate
habits among our people. N. Y. Mirror.
