SALUDA Co'rvos FcToaY.--We re
cently made a visit to the Saluda Factorv,
situated in Lexington District, S. C. It
has been in operation but for a'few years,
and its establishment cost we are informed-,
from $150,000 to $175,000. It has given,
and perhaps now gives em ployment to -150
persons. The establishment was sold a
few tnonths since at nearly two thirds of
its first cost, bringing about 60,000 dol
lars. The number of stockholders which
was formerly large, is now reduced to TO
persons. This factory is situated on the
Saluda River. at two miles distance frotn
the Columbia bridge. The Factory butild
ing is four stories and a half in height, and
is constructed of beautiful granite. The
cotton machinery is excellent and the fab
ric of the goods manufacturedis ofvery good
quality. We tould by no menus, advo
cate a Tariff, but we hope that this South
ern enterprize, will receive that encour
agemeut, which it justly deserves.
The road leading to the Factory, is ex,
cellent and well constructed. It runs by
a neat stone bridge, which spans the Salu
da. On a considerable portion of.it, the
scenery is beautiful and highly romantick.
Onone side,the traveller beholds lofty hills
covered to their summits with stately trees,
and luxuriant undergrowth, resembling
the mountains of the upper country-. A
mong them, are insterspersed frowning
rocks of immense size, some of which al
most jut into the road. On the other, lie
beholds the broad and beautiful Saluda
river, wending its way to the rapid Conga
ree, with whose waters it will soon toi
mingle. On the summit of a hill in sight
of the Factory. is a pretty little village,
where are situated the d welling of the bands
employed. The time of our visit was in
the evening. The sun pouring his declin
ing rays on the wood-crowned hills,the gen
ily flowing Saluda, the stately building of
the Factory, and the view of Columbia,
with her lofty spires in the distance, all
presented a picture beautiful to behold.
Pottery establishmeni near Columbia.
A new Pottery manufactory has been re
cently established on the farm of Dr. A
Landrum, near Columbia. We lately
paid it a visit and saw it in operation. The
establishment yet in its infancy, promi
ses well. Among other specimens of ar
ticles there manufnetured, we saw cuips re
sembling porcclain, and mortars resem
bling the Wedgewood. WVe doubt not that
