Is the best Machine in the world for Family Sewing
and Light Manufacturing purposes : lriee, (with
henmior,) and lieaiitifnlly oninmented, S3().
The Nos. I and 2 Machines are of great capacity
and application for manufacturing purposes.
Our No. 3 Machines are especially adapted to all
kinds of light. and heavy leather work, in carriage
trimming, hoot and shoe making, harness making,
. etc., etc. 1 hey are of extra size, with an arm long
enough to take under it and Btitch the largest size
dashes. There is scarcely any part of a Trimmer's
tititching that cannot be bi tter done with them than
by hand; so, too, the saving of tiina aud labor is
ver-fTi-reat. The table of these machines is 21
Inches long, and tl.a shuttle will Ik 11 six times the
usual quantity of thread. The large machines
work as fast as small ones.
We would a.il; fur our Letter A Machines, the
special attention of Yst Maker.! ond Dress Makers,
and all those? who want Machines for liyht mauufae

standard machines, making I ke tlicin, the inter

for family sewing and light manufacturing purposes
as our standard machines are for mauutacluriug
purposes in general.
We have always on hand, -Ilfinming Guages,
Silk. Twist, Linen and Cotton Thread on Spools,
best Machine Oil in Kettles, etc., etc.
We manufacture our own needles, and would
warn all persons using our machine not to buy any
others. We know that there are. needles sold ot
the most inferior quality, at higher prices than wo
charge for the best. The needles sold by us arc
manufactured especially for our machines. A bail

JfWo have made tho above REDUCTION IN
PRICES with tho two-fold view of benefitting tho
public and ourselves. The public have been swin
dled by spurious machines niado in imitation of
ours. The metal in tlicin, from the iron casting to
tho smallest piece, is of poor quality. Their mak
ers hare not the means to do their work well. They
are hid away in secret places, whero it would be
impossible to have at their command 'tbo proper
mechanical appliances. It is only by doing a great
business, and having extensive manufacturing es
tablishments, that good machines can bo made at
moderate prices. . The best designed machines,
badly Made, are always liable to get out of or
der, andjiro sure to cost considerable trouble and
money to keep them in repair.
The qualities to be looked for in a Macliine are :
Certainty of correct action at all rates of speed,
simplicity of construction, great durability, aud
rapidity of operation with tho least labor. Ma
chines to combine these essential qualities, must be
made of the best metal and finished to perfection.
Wo bavo tho ways and means, on a grand scale, to
do this. Tho purchasers of Machines, whose daily
bread it may concern, will find that those having
the aboro qualities not only work well at rapid as
well as slow rates of speed, but last long in the fin
est possible working order. Our Machines, at made
by u, will earn more money with less labor than
any others whether' in imitatiou of ours onfut. In
fact, they are cheaper than any other machines as a
gift. J4?"L0CAL AOKNTS W ANTKI).-J

ANOTHER SPEECH ON THE NEGRO
He Defines His Position and that of the
Kansas Brigade, on the War and Slavery.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo., Nov. 8, 1861.
Eiiitohs Minsouiti Democrat : About nine
o'clock, ThuisJay oveiiiiiir, the 2 1th Iinli;m;i
intent, under coiiinuuul of Lieutenant-
Colonel tiarvin, nienred at the headquar
ters ot General Lane, nnd tho rctcimental
bund discoursed the best martial and other
music. Most of tho KmiHiia Brigade poth
ered around the Indiana i'ej;'itnent,iiiid joined
with them in cidlw for Lane (Jeneral ltne
.rim Lane, the Liberator! On these names
and titles the ehniiges were run",- for a few
minutes, when tho General appeared in
plain citizens dress, in front of his quartcre.
Again I lie welkin resounded with chterstuid
huzzas, as the sound of some two thousand
or lnoro voices was borne o!V on tho breeze.
The General responded as follows:
Gentlemen and Fellow Solmkrs : The
reception of this compliment was as far
from my expectations: m from my deserts.
1 am aware these demotmlialions are not in
tended so much for nie as for the Kansas
Brigade ; yet I should be Iho fust to appreci
ate aad acknowledge any honors which may
come from the noble Stale of Indiana. Can
I turret Indiana ? Never! Cheers. '"If
1 forget thee let 'my rijj;ht hand forget her
cintnino;." t was tho dace ot my birth,
and is the place of my mo'.hor's g;rave. In
diana ha3 uiven me h.'-islative, executive,
military aud con;rressiiinal honorc. rtiehas
nursed me us a fond mother brings up hor
child ; and let my heart grow cold, and my
tongue cleave to tho roof of my mouth,
when I cease to be grateful, or fail to speak
well of my benefactors. Loud cheers.l
But the home of my adoption mid toils and
strife is Kansas. She was a prairie waste
when first I set foot on her soil, but through
desperate odds she has fought her way up
into the sisterhood of States, and already
her little army has become famous through
out the nation for its bravery and patriot
ism. For Kansas I have wrestled as wres
tics the mother when she brings forth her
first born into tho world. Thundering
cheers. Indiana, as a part of the past, is
enshrined in my heart. Kansas, us my home,
and an the livin;? present, absorbs my tho'ts
and sways my destiny. Once I obeyed the
voice of Indiana, and honored hor ; now
go at the bidding of Kansas, and love her.
Loud cheering. But gentlemen, I am
proud and happy to see tho two sisters of
our glorious Union striking hands with each
other on the soil of rebellious Missouri, de
termined that our united blows shall crush
out this most causeless and wicked rebel
lion, und preserve the national heritago left
us by our fathers.
Gentlemen : 1 shall not conceal the fact
in one respect I differ from some of my com
peers in command as to the mode of warfare
which is best calculated to bring this
wretched contest to a speedy, durable and
honorablo close. The point of difference
refers, of course, to Slavery the cause
all difference the Pandora's box, from
which has issued all our national troubles.
My creed is Let Shivery take vara of itself.
If it can survive tho shock of war let
live, but if between an upper and a nether
mill stone it bo ground to powder and tho
winds drive it away, it is not for me
gather up the dust ngain. I do not propone
to mako war upon Navcry, but upon the
rebels, and in tho meant ime to let slaves and
Slavery take care of themselves. An oli
garchy more cruel and proscriptive than
ever scourged or cursed a nation, ancient
modern, has brought on this war for Slavery,
and if we are required to protect, defend.or
in any way help Slavery, then wo are re
quired to cooperate with tho enemy,
help him, to defend him, and to work the
Biimo end. Can we place ourselves thus
alliance with our deudlj' and barbarous foes,
and at the hame t'tmo conquer them, subdue
them, crush them ? "When lesser contradic
tions are reconciled', we will think of har
War at be,et, is a terriblo calamity to
nation. In all the country through which
wo have passed, tho mails are stopped,
schools are suspended, churches are turned
into hospitals for tha sick and wounded.nnd
genoral demoralization prevails. Protract
the war one year and desolation, moral and
material alone would mark the track of ar
mies. Justice, humanity nnd mercy require
that the conflict should terminate as soon
as possible, and with the least practicable
shedding of blond.
Astounding as it may appear to you gen
tlemen fi oui Indiana, yet it is a fact we have
repeatedly demonstrated, that a heavier blow
is dealt out to the realm of Pocessia in tho
abduction or freedom of a slave than the
killing of a soldier ii; arms. Yes. and I may
put the truth in a stronger light still. Ab
duct from the same family a slave, and kill
in arms a son, and the loss of the slave will
be regarded as the greater misfortune the
calamity for w hich there t no healing halm
I could bring up tnoro than a thousand wit
nesses whose observation and expetieneo
qualify them to speak of tho truthful ctu
lor ot my remarks. If then by allowing
the slave to full in the! wake of the army
and lind the priceless boon of freedom, we
evoid bloodsh.-d, s:ve property from de
struction, and strike t'eiith-dealing blows
upon tho head and front of this rebellion,
dues not every consideration that is good
and just require that this policy bo udopt
ed t This war is for Slavery lotus make
it the mighty engine for Slavery's destruc
tion, and the rebels will soon cry enough.
They will see that like Suturu in the fable,
thev urpeating up their own children, und
will consent to cut short their repast. Ev
ery guarantee that is given to Slavet v by
the Government strengthens tho rebels iu
Tho Kansas Brigade lies met the enemy
in battle and routed him in every cot.ll.i t.
We have destroyed Osceola, : sort of luill
t iwn and half tiV.lit.iry ost ; but nil there
thing combined have not hmught t!n rebel
to their knees as have tho escaping of n
tew hundred slaves, by following tlie Lack
track of tho aniiy. Cheers.' Gentlemen,
my logic teaches that we cannot defend and
mako war upon the same foe at the same
time, and if it is the pin pose of the Govern
ment to crush the rebels an 1 prevent tho
slaves from stampeding, two armies should
be sent iu the Held. An advance force
might be called the treason crushing army,
und should bo tinned with ollVnsivo weap
ons. The. other shou'd be called the Slavery
restoring army, and should move about ten
miles in tho rear. It should bo clad in tho
defensive armor of triple steel, for such is
the meanness of spirit which is bred iu the
hearts of men by slave In-coding, i-lie
trading and slave holding, that the masters
would creep into every place of ambush
and lire upon those who were gathering up
and returning their fugitive human proper
ty. It would bo illegitimate for the Slavery
restoring army to return the fire, as they
might harm sumo of tho pets and darlings
for whom they are so generously noting.
Therefore give them the defensive arms,
but no offensive weapons. Such un arrange
ment, novel as it may seem, must be had if
Slavery is to be preserved in tho rear of an
tinny which moves with u force siillioient
to crush this huge rebellion. In my opinion
the second tinny should bo ns numerous us
the first. Preserving Slavery will cost the
Government ten times as much as crushing
the rebellion. Voices, "That's so."
The policy inaugurated by the Kansas
Brigade, which I have the lienor to com
mand, was not adopted in a moment, but is
the result of much experience. In a speech
reietitlv mailo m the cny ot Leavenworth,
my feelings of indignation became wrought
up to such a pitch, that I was betrayed into
the use of language which was justly con-
(leinneil by tho religious sentiment ot the
country, and which in cooler moments meets
my earnest disapproval. But whether ex
cited or calm, whether my language be
rough or stnoothe, principle und duty re
qu're that our policy be rigidly adhered to
until condemned by the Government; and if
it should bo condemned, if the Government
demand of the Brigade obeisance to the be
hests of Slavery, 1 shall consider the ques
tion of withdrawing from the field.
Since the rebels h;te failed to nationalize
Slavery, their hat flu cry is "Down with the
L'uion." Let Slavery lift up its crest in the'
air, and here I solemnly vow, that if Jim
Lane is compelled to add a note to such an
inll rnal chorus, he breaks his sword and
quits the licld. Thundei ing applause.
Let us bo bold inscribe "freedom lo all
upon our banners, and appear just what wo
arc, tho opponent of Slavery. It is certain
as if written in tho book of fate, that this
point must be reached before the war is
over. Take this stand and enthusiasm will
be inspired in the ranks. In steadiness of
purpose and com age, cadi soldier will be a
.spartan hero. 1 lie spirit of the crusader
will be united with tho iron will of the Ro
man, anil an army ol such soldiers is invin-
tble. Cheers. 1 heso Liueis lo you In-
dianians may appear strange; bill when your
military education has received that peculiar
cast which experience is sure to give it, and
which now pertains to tho Kansas soldier,
then will wo march shoulder to shoulder,
and victoriously, too, against tho enslavers
and hrululizcrs, and against tho traitors to
the best Government on earth.
Soldiers, wo have a commander on whose
courage, skill and kindness of heart we
may always confide. (Jeneral Hunter has a
Kansas education ; he has suffered with us
because of Slavery, and ho will, I know,
indorse the policy I have advocated to
night. It should bo the business of Congress, at
its coining session, to adopt a law directing
tho President of the United States, by proc
lamation, to order the rebel States, within
thirty or sixty days, to lay down their anus
and return to their allegiance, or in default
thereof, declare every siavo free throughout
their domains. So far as I am concerned, I
hope the Almighty will so direct tho hearts
of the rebels, that, like I'haraoh, they will
persist in their crime, and then we will in
vade them, and strike the shackels from ev
Provision, too, should bo mado for set
tling the African in Ilayti, Central or South
America, and let the ruco form a nation by
itself. Liberia has served a glorious purpose-
in teaching tho world that these op
pressed aud wretched people are capablo of
supporting themselves and self-government.
I look upon tho republic of Liberia as tho
bud yes, the full blown hope of the whole
of Africa, and wish it every encouragement
and success. But it is too many thousand
miles away to transport four millions of
slaves. This age has not tho timo and pa
tience requisite to such a task.
But our continent has room sufficient,
with soil, climate and productions suitable
for tho accommodation of this people, who
in the mysteries of providence have been
thrown among us. Transportation to the
places named may bo mado a practical real
ity, The good of both races require their
separation. Ages of oppression, ignorance
and wrongt have made tho African a being
inferior in intellect and social attainments
to the Caucassion, and whilst together we
shall always have low, cringing servility on
the ono hand, and lordly domination on the
other; it is better, for both parties that each
enjoy tho honors and responsibilities of a
nationality of its own. In such an event,
our common humanity woidd make a vast
stride toward perfection.
As such a proclamation might have the
effect to liberate tho slaves of many loyal
citizens, I would cheerfully give my consent
to havo them paid out of tho national treas
ury for any Iosh they might sustain. Let
us dare do right, trusting to the principle,
that right makes might ; and the great re
public, once the wonder of tho world, will
emerge from these troubles, purer, wealthi
er and stronger thnu ever.
These are among tho reasons why free
dom to all should be the watch-word of the

Letter from Camp.
CAMP NOLIN, Ky. Oct. 30, 1861.
Mtt. Bailey Dear Sir: I promised you
an article last week, but as we made no ad
vance movement. I concluded yourself and
pillions would Lot be displeased by the
omission. Yet, in camp life, there are seme
incidents which, if properly presented, tuny
be interesting. One of these ''incident;"
was the capture of a rebel clergyman by
our scouts, lie was bt ought befoie Col.
Gibson, (who was acting General at that
time in Consequence of the sickness of Gen,
BoRseau,) who succeeded in convincing him
that he yet owed duties to the Government.
His Bcvercnee contended that the sanctity
of ldoi profession should exonerate him from
an examination as to his principles, but Col.
Gibson replied that if he had sufficient time
ho could convince him from the Bible that
ho was un arrant traitor, and to this and
other potent arguments, ho was induced to
make profession to be a Union man.
On the lyth inst., Gen. Kossenu went a-
head 1" miles, with 1 000 infantry and 800
cavalry, in search of rebels. They rcluii -
ed, however, without any "thrilling adven
ture," not even getting a sight of "secesh,'
and since then we have nt no conlidenci
iu reports of bauds of rebels being in our
We are encamped on tho line of the Lou
isville aud Nashville railroad, which is iu
good running condition between this point
and Louisville; but ahead it has been dam
aged by the rebels and we cannot very well
advance until it is repaired. This state of
affairs is very unpleasant to the members
of the -tilth, for on u number of accounts
thev are anxious to get further south. One
thing, we want lo get further south before
winter, for we cannot protect ourselves u
gainst cold weather in ciinip, like we have
been accustomed to do at home. Another
is, we ciinio for the purpose of "cleaning
out the rebels," and we would like to ac
complish the object of our mission. Our
Colonel induced us to believo when we en
listed, that we would be led forward fully
as fast as we wanted to go; and the men
are anxious to go farwnrd and repair tho
railroad, and thereby prepare for the trans
portation of supplies as fust nu we advance.
Some of the men have ineiisels, but gen
erally they are healthy and in good spirits;
but - their spirits would be belter if they
had their overcoats; (though they expect to
receive them in a few days;) for the weath
er is rather cool for comfort, especially
the nights, with tho "present supply of
There is not a little complaint tigair.Kt the
qunrteiniiu tor of this regiment, for that
functionary appeal s to conduct lhat depart
ment more for his own benefit than for the
comfort of the soldiers. Last Sunday ho
endeavored to palm off sonic rotten pork
on the men, und refused, with tin oath, to
take it back when his attention was called
to that fact; but tho Colonel was appealed
to and he concluded to take it back rather
than do worse.
Attached to this regiment is a very good
brass band, and Secretary Cameron is not
alone in his view respecting such institu
tions, Un thinks they arc more cost than
profit, nnd Wo concur with him, und think
if tho amount of money they reel ive has to
be used for the benefit of tho army, it could
be applied tnoro advantageously in some
other manner; for they add to tho efficiency
of an army about as much as would tin equal
number of kaly-dids. t
The IOth to-day received 30 new tents,
which makes quite an addition to our can
vass city, und add not a little to the comfort
of the soldiers; for instead of 15 or lfi being
crowded into one tent, only 8 or 10 are now
apportioned to one.
The naino Kentucky was given fo this
county by its original inhabitants, and in
their langnagc it was significant; meaning
"dark and bloody ground." This naino was
given to it by the aborigines, because on
its soil they fought many sanguinary bat
tles. The name confined to be appropriate
during its first settlement by the present
race, and, sad to relate, the name appears
to bo more appropriate now than ever be
fore; for notwithstanding all her efforts
the contrary, the soil of Kentucky is now
occupied by near 100,000 opposing hosts.
Buckner is said to be apprehensive that wo
intend wintering in Kentucky, and we feel
like saying what will ho do about it, for wo
intend to choose our own place of winter
ing, Providence permitting. It is 'reported'
that Buckner is within o few miles of
with a strong force, intending to dislodge
us, and if he succeeds I may have a sorry
tale to relate at some future period; but
fighting for tho right, and relying upon tho
strong arm of Jehovah for aid, wo expect
to succeed. If wo pass through the battle,

when another was directed near the bow.
This brought tho atramer to. Lieutenant
Fairfax, to whom both the Confederate pas
sengers were personally known, was sent
on lioard in a boat, supported with two
more boats filled with marines. Lieutenant
Fairfax went on deck and called for Messrs.
Mason and Slidoll, who soon appeared.
Lieutenant Fa:rfux politely informed them
of the object ot his mission, ami asked them
to go on board his boat. To this thev ob

pointing to his marines drawn up on decks
of the British steamer, said: "You see, sir, I

"Then vou must use it," replied Mason.
With this Lieut. Fairfax placed his hand
upon tho Senator's shoulder and pressed
him to the gangway. At this juncture the
passengers rushed forward, somewhat ex
cited, and attempted to interfere. Tho ma
rines immediately showed their liiiyomts,
and Mason consented to the decision of
Lieut. Fairfax, asking that he might be per
mitted to make bis protest in w riting. Just
then a lino specimen of an F.nglishnian rush

olilcer in command ol the mails, probably,)
und demanded why passengers on board
that ship were molested. Lt. Fairfax iufoi til
ed him that he had stated to Captain Moir,
of the packet, why ho had arrested two of
his passengers, and further than that he
had no explanations to make. Protests were
then drawn up, and Maiwui and Slidoll. with

and thence buck to Southampton.
Lieutenant Taylor arrived hero at noon,
yesterday, and liio news of the arrest creat
ed a profound sensation, and very general
and almost unbounded rejoicing. The at
in, outside of the departments, very general
ly approved, tho' there arc verious opinions
expressed in tho speculations as to tho light
in which England will view the transaction.
One thing i'Mn'idont; Ku,",land has always
favored the right of search; and it is a bad
law, or rule that will not work equally well
both ways. Captain Wilkes was disposed
to sei.o tho packet, under tho charge of
favoring tho enemies of our country, and
bring her to Key West; but fin ling that it
would seriously disappoint a largo number
of passengers, ho abandoned his purposo.

tho son of a fallow chaiv'.ler, a parentage of
which he had the wiakness to bo ashaiuid,
and which was a source thru, and probably
is now, of continual mortification. It is re
lated of him that on ono occasion in con
versation with a lady, noted and dreaded
for her wit, ho expressed a l sire for foreign
travel. "Ah!"said the lady, "1 have no doubt
you would find yourself vcrj much at home
in Greece!" Slidoll withdrew precipitately
from the encounter. "That young man,
said his persecutor, as he retreated, "needs
to bo dipped over again, for he has not been
well Molded" Ho will now be put where he
can reflect at his leisure upon the peaceful
and respectable qualities of tho father a:id
