There is now on exhibition in the
rear of No. 60 Ann street, New York,
a machine in activo work which,
from tho character of its labors, can?
not fail to awaken general interest.
It stands at the further extremity of
a court-yard, and, from its simplicity
of form, might bo passed by un?
noticed. Nevertheless there is much
to see about it, and its work affords
pleasant field for reflection. It is a
machine for making bricks, nothing
more, and although not the first of
ita kind, it has peculiar qualities
worth making a note of. It consists
principally of an upright cylinder,
standing. on a revolving diso, all
standing in a space cf about eight
feet square, and weighing two and n
half tons. The top of the cylinder
is about breast high, and into it is
easily thrown the clay, which is then
simply watered. There is no other
preparation. The machine does its
own tempering. Within the cylinder
revolves an upright shaft, furnished
with blades set at an angle, which
cut up and temper the clay, at tho
same time pressing it downward into
the brass moulds in the revolving
disc, as fast as they aro brought
round. By a simple arrangement
the clay is further compressed ns it
travels round, and is then tilted out
-a perfect brick in a few moments,
and lifted off reudy for haoking.
Owing to the want of space fo?
dumping clay, the labors of the ma?
chine yesterday were necessarily of
short duration-while the material
lasted. But enough of its working
was shown to astonish the visitors.
The bricks turned up on the table or
revolving disc much moro rapidly
than two inexperienced hands could
remove them. They were perfect in
shape, of smooth surface, and so com?
pressed that they could be handled
without soiling the fingers. The
rapidity with which the unshapen
clod turned out a "perfect brick"
was truly astonishing, and suggests
the hopo that the promised machine
to grind up the old folk and turn out
babies is not a myth after all.
An engine of 15-horse power drives
the machino exhibited yesterday.
When at its full working power, two
men are required to shovel in the
clay, two boys to remove the brick,
three to truck them off to the hack,
in which they are piled for prepara?
tory drying, prior to being placed in
the kilns. With this force, assuming
the clay to be laid down at the ma?
chine, 30,000 bricks can be easily
made, trucked off and hacked in ten
hours. This is truly remarkable,
and there is fair reason to hope that
the advent of tins machino is a pro?
mise of reduced prices in the build?
ing material it supplies, and, as a
consequence, rednced rents. The
machine is tho invention of Mr.
Gard, of Chicago, where it is now in
extensive operation, and where, on
ono occasion, it turned out 44,500
bricks in a single day. It will re?
main on exhibition at the place above
named for some time, where it will
well ropay the visits of machinist,
capitalists and the curious.
THE COTTON CHOP OP NORTH CARO
UNA.-The Wilmington (N. C.) Jour?
nal states that the reports that they
have been enabled to gather in re?
gard to the cotton crop of that sec?
tion, and, in fact, the whole State,
indicate that the yield will be about
equal to that of last year. The num?
ber of acres under cultivation is much
less than was the case last year, but
the yield to the acre has been de?
cidedly better. On the whole, the
farmers have done well with the in?
different labor they were enable to
secure, and have cause to rejoice
that their fortune has been thus
Ex-Gov. Orr's determination to j
leave South Carolina and tako up his
residence in Missouri, cannot fail to
be regarded as a misfortune for the
State in which he has hitherto exert?
ed so much influence, and which now
needs the services of all her judicious
citizens more than ever before.
From the close of thc war, Ex-Gov.
Orr has boen zealous and unwearied
in his endeavors to adapt tho politi?
cal action of the State to the changes
brought about by tho war. He has
appreciated the nature and extent of
thoso changes more truly than most
of the publie men of the State, and
has not shrunk from the responsibili?
ty of snob action as they require.
He has urged the wisdom of acting
in harmony with tho dominant senti?
ment of the North-of accepting the
Reconstruction Acts of Congress,
and of re-organizing the Southern
Stato Governments in accordance
with their requirements. He was for
protecting the freed slaves in all
their newly-acquired rights, and for
giving them the share of political
power to which their numbers enti?
tle them and which is necessary for
their protection. He has been the
true and judicious frieud of his State
in her timo of sorest need, aud hos
encountered the sharpest and most
bitter hostility of tho re-actionists
and rebels who aro resolved to re?
claim their old authority. We are
not surprised that he finds it neces?
sary for his personal welfaro to leave
the State and renew his career else?
where. But his doing so is a calam?
ity for South Carolina.
[New York Times.
General Sherman has written a let?
ter on tho present condition of Iudiuu
affairs, which is full of practical good
sense. He points out, with startling
brevity, the insufficiency of his forces
to guard the vast territory which
lies open to the ravages of hostile
[Philadelphia Evening Bulletin.
Ii there were not so urgent a ne?
cessity for a large number of troops
to sustain the radical carpet-baggers
and their negro proteges, in their
efforts to get the votes of the South?
ern States for Grant and tho Smiler,
General Sherman might havo abun?
dant force to subdue the Indians on
tho plnins, but the "very life of the
radical party" depends upon keeping
a large army in the "reconstructed"
States, and the people of the Western
Territories must defend themselves
the best way they eau.
To be perfect, a woman must have
thirty things: Three white ones
skin, tho teeth and the bands. Three
black ones-tho eyes, tho ej'e-lashes
and the eye-brows. Three pink ones
the lips, the breast and the nails.
Three long ones-the waist, the hair
and the hands. Three short ques
the teeth, tho ears and the tongue.
Three narrow ones-the waist, tho
mouth and the ankles. Three deli?
cate ones-tho lips, tho fingers and
tho chin. Three small ones-the
nose, tho head and tho feet. Three
round ones-the arms, the legs and
tho hips. Three large ones-the fore?
head, tho intelligence and the dowry.
These thirty things havo never been
found in one woman, because perfec?
tion does not exist in the world.

THE WEEKLY GLEANER-Devoted to
tho rehabilitation of the South in its former
prosperity-is offered to subscribers at tho
low rato of $1 50 for six months.
The annals of tho American Republic
show no political campaign comparable in
thu magnitude of its issues and the mo?
mentousness of its results to that for the
Presidency, now pending. Indeed, tho
very lifo of freo government is on trial,
and it will ho a sad commentary on tho
capacity of tho people for tho exercise of
that high truBt if they, the jurors who aro
to try tho issue, pronounce a verdict of
self-condemnation. If tho South has any
hopo it is in the success of the Democratic
party in tho coming Presidential election;
and every citizen is vitally interested in
the progress of tho battle, and cannot
afford to be without a sound and reliable
As an organ, not only of sound Demo?
cratic principles, but as a vehicle of ge?

commended to Southern support. A largo

an organ to disabuse the Northern mind
of the falsehoods in relation to Southern
thought and actions, with which it is the
industrious vocation of certain parties to
poison the springs of Northern feeling on
Southern subjects. In this view of the
