ThE VAUCLUSE FACTORY.
For the double purpose of convincing
our friend of the Banner of the causes
which produced the losses in this estab
lishment, which he so strong!y relies on
to prove the futility of our attempting to
rival the Northern manufacturers-as
well as. to warn those just embarkinein
the business, we give below Mr. Wim.
Gregg's clear and concise statement of
the facts connected with the establish
ment, and the management of the VUu
That gentIleman, himself at one time
its part owner and sole manager, speaks
as-one entitled to credence, and has no
interests to subserve, having been en
tirely disconnected with it for some years
past. Its present proprietor is said to
have conducted it in a very different
manner from his predecessors, making
it very profitable, and daily increasing
those profits as his experience of the-bu
siness increases. Mr. Gregg's state
ment (extracted fiom. his essays on Do.
mestic Indus:ry, published in 1845) is
to the following effect-from it every one
can see why the Vaucluse Factory was
a failure in the first instance. The
"facts" alone will account for the "fig,
ures" which its books displayed. We
hope no one will fail to tead this instruc
tive narrative :
I will now proceed to give a history
of the Vaucluse Manufacturing Compa,.
ny, and of its manufactturing establish
nient, erected in the year 1833. Tis
company wits no doubt stimulated to
action by the disposition that pervaded
this State about that time, for manufac
turing, bringing into existence the Marl.
horo, D.- Kalb, Salida, and two or three
smialler mills, and it is truly unfortunate
for this State, that such nsistakes should
have been -made.
Gen. MlcDuffie, and our worthy fel
low-ci izen, the lon. Mitchell King,
were two of the prtncipal stockholdets
in the Vaucluse Company. One would
suppose that such men, Pngarging in a
entrprise, would hve giveii lie
subject some sort of investigation. The
posilion that these gentlemen occpy in
the State, as to fortune and other things,
is a proof of their aLility and eminent
success in such enterprises as have en
gaged their attention ; but unfortunately
for them, in this instance, they only
looked across the wiaters at tie promised
land-they fited otit their bark for the
voyage, but went to sleep at the helim.
- This comoiy .obtained a charter
fiom the .Legislature, and organized
thenselve's by electing a President ar.d
five Dixectors. They wrote to Parc-er
son, N. J, for machinery, suited to the
manuf'acture of cotton and' wool-fine
and coarse cloth-assorted yarns, &c.,
thus, as wifl bo-.perceived, splitting on
the same rock vhich wrecked the Salti,
da Company. They committed the
same error, of not looking beyond the
supply of the immediate neighborhood,
and so complicated their machinery as
to render it impossible for it to produce
profit, except by the nicest and most
skilful managemtent. The present pro
prietors of this establishment have sold
the woollen machinery and are remodel
ing the balance, but it will have to re
ceive many additions in new machinery
before it will be capable with the best
managenment of turning out the qgnmity,
per hand, that the Massachusetts tmills do.
The strangest part of the story 1e
mains yet to be told. As'above stattedl,
this Company elected a President and
five Directors to manage their affairs.
This Board ordered the machinery to
be made and sent out-aippointed an
agent to superintend the erection of a
suitable building, for it, and houses for
thte otpet atives. Will the fact be credi
ted, that this Board of Directors never
l~ad a nheeting after its first organization,
not even to receive the building from
the contractor's hands ? Thte Factory
ran thtus neglected Wy those appointed
to look after its affnirs, for two years
and six months, and is it sur prising that,
instead of making money, they should
have incurred a debt of $6000 I For
tunately for the company, an individual
undertook to purchase some of thieshares
andi after possessing himself of a number
sufficient to excite soma itnterest, lhe
looked into matters and found the mill
in charge of an ignorant Englishman,
who received $5 per day. He knew
nothing of the business, aind as wvas atf
terwards proved, bad never before had
charge even of a single departnent in a
mill, lie was, in fact, otnly a common
operative. 'witb neither truth nor hones
ty in hint. This gentleman immediately
determined to apprize the company of
thieir real condition. It was with the
greatest difficulty-that a sufficient number
of the stock-holders could be brought
together, to form a quotum, in orer that
meastures of relief nicht be taken; and
butt for the debt of $6000, which was~
about to go into judgment, it is vety
questionable whether a meeting could
have been obtained. The result of this
inceting was that the property was of
fered fdr sale. The gentleman alluded
to above, who had putchased into the
company, took up his abode at the Fac
tory, as a summer residence-discharged
the English overseer and took chat ge of
the establishment in person-mado the
Factory turn out double its former pro.
duct-purchased the cotton and other
supplies-sold the goods, &c., and in
eight months yrevious to the sale made
a nett sum for the oivners of about
$11,000. This paid fhe debt and h ft a
sulplus of $>000, and but for this cir
comstance, the establishment would
have sold for a mere song. The shares,
fifiy-four and. a half in number, cost
originally $1000 each. The sale pro
due*ed about $750 per share. So endled
the Vaucluse Manufacturing Company,
ancf.it is"a matter of surprise that the
stdckholders did not sink their entire
T MATFRIAL Of TIE BattTis ARmy.
-The military and naval expenditures of
Great Britain. fur the last three years.
have averaged more than twenty millions
pounda sterling. The army consists of
138,000 men, only one third as large as
the Fretnch army, but costing two thirds
more. The system of purchasing com.
missions prevails to a great extent, and
involves. as it necessarily most, the most
gross ubuses.tad cc rruption. An Ensiignacy
costsC450,a Lieutenancy 9700, and a
Ca >tincy Z1800. No previous services
i? .qualificaiitng are necessary; the only
requisites are family influenrce and tnoney.
This aystem, together with the prodigal
bestowal of brevets, have occasioned a
great 'mul-titiplicity of officers. There
are in the British army 9 Field Marshals,
284 Generals and Lieut. Generals, and
1025 Cononels and Lieut. Colonels. Most
rf these officers are mere sinecures; the
Colonel, for instance, never commands
his regiment, and seldom sees it; his par.
icular province, is, to see that the regi
ment is supplied with clothing, which dnty
is tnade a profitable job, yielding com..
amnly to uhidu~onal p -
is alss a soure-of emolument to him.
The first dignitaries of the lnnd, are Col
nels of regiments. Prince Albert, the
Duke of Cambridge, aud the Duake of
Wellington. the two former Field Mar.
shals, and the latter cormmander-in chief.
are Colotels. and receive alaries as such.
The pay of a C->lonel is .C1200.
There i, also great preference shown,
consequence of aridtncratic influence, to
certain regiments over nthers. The Life
Guards. tile Horse Guardi. and the Grena
dier regiments are crack and favorite
corps; they are made up exclusively of
the younger-sons ot the nobility, and are
for the most part quartered in Louclnon ar.d
its vicinity. Each of them coninins a
number of supernt merary officers, averag
ing front seventy-two to one hundred and
twenty. officers, while the tegular in
fantry regiments have hut iwenty eight.
. In the navy the ahmses are not st fli.
grant ati extnsive. Naval commissions
are never purchased. and experience and
prfesuional knowledge are prerequisiies
to promotion. The numher of'stpernume
rary officers is large and increasing. There
are one htndred and fifty Admirals, in the
British navy, hesides fifty retired Ad
nmirals, although only thirty-six ettn he
enployed. At the present time there are
only fourteen engaged in active service.

A SINGULAR TRANVACTIoN..-W e
finid the following notico of a very sin
gularcase in the last number of the In
diana State Sentinel:
The mirriage of Mr. Henry Apple
and Mrs. Sarah Apple was solemnised
at the clerk's office in this city, (indi
anapolis,) on the 7th inst., by Judge
Smith, one of the Associate Judges of
this county. Mr. and Mrs. Apple hav
ing been living together as a husband and
wife some twenty years, and have raised
a large family of cliildren. Their re
marriage was made necessary by the
following mystemious train of chcuin
stances, as we learn by a Iriend who was
present at the exaninati-,n of the case
in the Circuit Court 'now in session in
this city. Mr. John Apple, many years
ago, left this country as a volunteer to
the Black Hawk war. During his ad.
sence, a traveller passed through the
country, who informed Mrs. A.. that
her husband had been kil'ed; that he,
the traveller, had -aided in buring him,
and had marked with an axe, the tree
un~ler which lie was iiterred. Apple
did not return, and no doubt was enter
tained by his wife or her friends of his
decease. Time passed on, and nothing
was heard to discredit the traveller's
siory, and.Mrs. A., after having con
tinued for a proper length of time in a
state of supposed widuwhood, was fur
merly married to .Mr. Henry Apple, a
fartmer of this county. A few pionths
since, it was authentically ascettained
that John Apple was yetactually living!
A divorce was obtained by Mrs. Apple,
and she was re-maried, on Monday last
as above staled, to -Henry Apple, the
man vith whom she has been innocent
ly living for many years past, as her
supposed husband. We have heard o'f
no case assigned for the singular manner
in which the first husband acted.
RULE Fort WEARING Rinas.-For the
benefit of imie "craft,"as the bachelor's
say,. we copy the following rule for
wearing tint (lrbe especial benefit of
g o. , i v ng*
"When a lady is not engaged she
wears a ring on her first finger; if en
gaiged. on her second; if married, on her
third; and if she intends to :emain unmar
ried, she wears the ring on her fourth
finger. This is tie rule laid down in the
latest work upon femmale proprieties
that we have seen, anl it appears to be
generally recognised among the sex as
one that should be scripUilously observ
ed. There are some young ladies, how
ever, who appenr to take dolight in
wearing a ring both upon the first and
the second linger, thus leaving the ad
miring spectator in some perplexity how
to classify them. Others wear a ring
upon each finger, and, again, three or
four little gnlden hoops. sparkling with
briliants, may be seen edging cach other
on thesecond-enmblematical, probably,

CURE OF CANcER.-Perhaps I can
confer a favdr on some of your subsci
bers, by giving a very simple, and ef
fectual cure for Cancers. The extract
of wood sorrel, used as a plaster throughi
the day, and slippeiy elm bark at night
will cure any4ancer that has ulcerated,
or that has not live skin over it ; in that
case the skin shnold be broken in some
way. To burn a piece of punk on the
place, is a good mnethod; then apply the
salve, a~s befere directed. The extract
is obtained, simply hy pounding the
common sorrel in a morter, or other
vessel, and pressing out the juice, then
put it in a pewter dish or basin, and
place it in -the sun, until it dries to thme
consistence of tar when it is fit for use.
