t'.al the new iine of railroad between

ST. PATRICK'S DAT.
Friday last, March 17, (St. PATRICK'S
Day.) was generally celebrated with
spirit throughout the country, North
and South, K?st and West, wherever
any considerable number of Ireland's
sturdy and patriotic sous are gathered
together % io community. Veneration
for his great Patron Saint, lives and
swells in the Irishman's heart with an
enthusiasm and devotion which is second
only to that inspired by Pontifical char?
acter and authority and the wrongs and
oppressions of his native land. This
veneration, too, is one of the strong con?
stituents uf the fixedness of the Irish
character. It has come down from the
distant past-surviving the wrecks and
oblivion of many centuries; for, if we
receive the accredited authorities, St.
PATUICK'S gnat work, in consideration
of which his name is so dear-that of
traveling through Ireland, founding
Churches and Monasteries-was per?
formed between the years, A. D., 400

We have it from a source authorita?
tive that Mr. W. H. PERON NEA U,
Treasurer, is now authorized to put
??odor contract, for grading, the whole
line of road from Sumter to the connex?
ion with the North Easters Koad.
Arrangements have at length been made
by which means sufficient will bo reali?
zed to complete tbis part of the road,
and the work is to be pushed energeti?
Much might be said ot the energy,
ability and persistency of the gentlemen
who have labored with the ad verse aod
difficult circumstances connected with
this enterprise, aod we make this an?
nouncement with much pleasure. I?
will give life and bopo to th ; people on

Far sab ay
Tho extensive nee of these wctches for the Ital
fifteen veers by Railway Conductors, Engineers
and Expressmen, the most exacting of watch
wearers, has thoroughly demonstrated the
strength, steadiness, durability and accuracy of
the Waltham Watch. To satisfy that class in all
these respects, is to decide the question as to the
real value of these time-keepers.
More than 500,000 of these watches are now
speaking for themselves in the pockets of the
people-a proof and a guarantee of their superi?
ority over all others.
The superior organization ard great extent of
the Company's Works at Waltham, enables them
to produce watches at a price which renders
competition futile, and those who buy any other
watch merely pay from 25 to 50 per cent more
for their watches than is ueccssaay.
These time-pieces combine every improvement
that an g experience has proved of real prac?
tical ase. Haring had the refasal of nearly
every invention in watch making originated in
this country or in Europe, only those were finally
adopted which severe testing by the most skil
foll artisans in our works, and long use on the
part of the public, demonstrated to be essential to
correct and enduring time-keeping.
Among the many improvements we would par
The invention and ase of a centre pinten o
peculiar construction, to prevent damage to the
train by the breakage of main-springs, is original
with the American Watch Company, who, having
had the refusal of all other contrivance.?, adopted
Fogg's patent pinion as being the best and fault?
Hardened and tempered hair-springs, now
universally admitted by Watchmakers to be the
best, ar* used in all grades of Waltham Watch?
All Waltham Watches hav6 dust proof caps,
protecting the movement from dust, and lessening
the necessary of the frequent cleaning necessary
in other watches.
Our new patent stem winder, or keyless watch
is already a decided success, and a great im?
provement on any stem winding watch in the
American market, and by far tho cheapest watch
of its quality now offered to the public. To those
living in portions of the United States where
watchmakers do not abonnd, watches with the
above mentioned improvemanrs which tend to
ensure accuracy, cleanliness, durability and con?
venience, mast prove invaluable.
