FBEEDMES'S BUREAU IS KORTH-CAROLIXA.
REPORT OF GENERALS STEED
MAN AND FULLERTON. ... .
Highly Important Revelations la relation to
certain Korean Officers !
Having completed our duties in Virginia,
we proceeded to the Department of North
Carolina, and arrived at Raleigh on the 23d
of April. Here we saw the Assistant Com
missioner of the Bureau for said State, Col
onel E. Whittlesey, and obtained from him
the following information as the number of
military officers and civilians employed, and
the number of freedtnen to whom rations
have been issued since the first of December
last in said State.
Commissioned officers in the military ser
vice: One colonel, one lieutenant colonel,
two majors, seventeen captains, six first lieu
tenants, eight second lieutenants, one chap
lain. MEDICAL, DEPAltTMEXT.
9 contract surgeons at per month, $100,00
26 hospital attendants, at average

Rations have been issued as follows :
March, " 321
The same reasons that exist for issuing ra
tions to the freedmen of Virginia, and the
necessity for the continuance of this relief,
apply to freedmen of North-Carolina.
FEELING TOWARDS THE BUREAU.
We found the feeling towards the Bureau
much the same as that already stated as pre
vailing in Virginia, except that there appears
to le a more universal desire in this depart
ment on the part of all classes to have it re
moved. This feeling is no doubt attributa
ble to the misconduct of many of the offi
cers of the Bureau, such as working planta
tions, running sawmills, manufacturing tur
pentine and tar, &c. operations which bring
them, armed with authority of their official
position!, into competition with the eitizens
who are employing freedmen.
CONDUCT OF THE AGENTS.
We have investigated some of the charges
made against agents of the Bureau, and in
pursuing our inquiries on this point com
menced with the Assistant Commissioner of
" the State, Colonel E. Whittlesy, to whom we
Addressed the interrogatory : " Do you know
of any person in the military service now on
duty with the Freedmeu's Bureau in this de
partment who is or has been since entering
upon the duties of his office, engaged or in
terested, either directly or indirectly, in the
cultivation ot any lands within the depart
ment ?" He answered, No." Subsequent
ly he addressed us a no,te, hereto appended,
in which he stated that, in order to assist the
planters in hiring freedmen and trying fairly
the experiment of free labor, he and some
other officers of the Bureau had loaned mon
ey, and thus inclirectlj' had an interest in cul
tivating farms. On receiving this note we
addressed Colonel Whittlesey further inter
rogations, a copy of which is hereto annexed,
to which he replied in a communication, also
"hereto appended, disclosing the fact that he
3s interested as an equal partuer with the
Rev. Horace James, of Massachusetts, for
anerly captain and acting quartermaster
JTreedtnen's Bureau, and with Mr. Winthrop
Tappan, of Maine, in the cultivation of a
large farm in Pitt county, N. C. lie also
stated therein that Captain F. A. Seeley, Su
perintendent of the Bureau for the Eastern
.District, N. C, is interested in the cultivation
of a plantation in Wayne county, N. C, with
;a Mr. Potter, and that Captain Isaac Itose
Icranz, Commissary Subsistence, is interested
with a Mr. Brooks in the cultivation of a
plantation in Pitt county, N. C.
A BRIGHT EXCEPTION.
From Raleigh we proceeded to Salisbury,
"where we found Major Clinton A. Cilley, Su
perintendent in the Bureau, having chargoof
the Western District, embracing fifty-one
counties of the State. This efficient and
competent officer has administered the affairs
of the Bureau within his district with much
.ability and impartiality. We conferred with
the leading white citizens, embracing both
those who had formerly been rebels and those
who had been Union men, and also with a
delegation of intelligent colored people rep
resenting the freedmen, all of whom agreed
in the statement that the freedmen were at
work, were pefectly satisfied, and that good
"feeling and harmony prevailed between the
whites and blacks throughout the district.
Major Cilley is not interested in the cultiva
tion of any plantation, or in any other busi
ness not directly connected with his official
duties, and he has prohibited all officers
serving under him within his district from
engaging in any enterprise which would en
able them to appropriate or control the labor
of freedmen under their jurisdiction to ad
vance their private interests. We attribute
much of the order and contentment of the
freedmen in the Western district to Major
Cilley's judicious and honest administration.
BACK TO RALEIGH.
After completing our inspection of the op
erations of the Bureau in Maj. Cilley's district
we returned to Raleigh, where we remained
one day for the purpose of further interview
with Colonel Whittlesey ; but he being ,I;j
sent we were obliged to address him eertain
interrogatories in writing, to which he afier--wards
replied as before stated.
AFFAIRS AT SEWBERiT,
On the 27th of April we left Raleigh for
INewbern, the headquarters of Captain F. A,
"Seeley, Superintendent of the Bureau of the
Eastern district of North-Carolina. We at
once proceed e'l to investigate the affairs of
tthe Bureau and the conduct of its officers in
this district. Captain Seeley was interroga
ted as to wnetner lie was in teres tea j,n any
manner, directly or indirectly, in the curtivn
tion of lands or in any other private busi
ness reqiring the labor of freed men. He an
wered that he was not, except inrlireetly in
manufacturing lumber, having purchased or
being about to purchase with two of his
clerks a sawmill alftuit forty miles down the
rivec Dr. Rush, medical purveyor, U. S. V..
stationed at Newbern, and a Mr. Potter, a
citizen, were subsequently examined, both of
whom stated that Captain Seeley, Super in- i
xendent or tue i reedmen s. Bureau for tue
district, entered into partnership with them,
About December last, in a contract to ctrtti--vatethe
farm of Mr. George Collier, a citizen
of North-Carolina, near Goldsborough.
"Thay commenced operations by planting
even hundred acres ot cotton and some coni
tliis work necessarily requiring .the labor of
a large number of freedmen. Dr. Rush sta
ted that some two weeks since he had comli
tionally purchased the interest of Capt. See
ley in this plantation, but liad not yet con
summated the contract. Mr. Potter stated
that about a fortnight ago Dr. Rush, he him
self and others had conditionally purchased
a part of the interest of Captain. Seeley, ami
that Captain Seeley still owned an interest in
the plantation. Without bein able to de
termine, from the testimony, how far Capt.
beeley is interested in this plantation, it is
perfectly evident that he prevaricated in his
answer to our interrogatory.:
Captain Rosekranz, Sub-Agent of the Bu
reau at JNeWbern under Captain Seeley, .and
Commissary of Subsistence.
as will be seen i
by reference to the paper'' hereto attached, is
also engaged in cultivating a large planta
tion near Little Washington, N. C, with the
labor of freedmen, "whom he supplies .with
rations as a part of their wages, -.a, . r
lilSSma RATIONS. - i,
In one of our interviews with the freed
men at Newbern some of them, who were
employed in the Commissary department of
the Bureau, stated that rations in bulk had
been frequently taken from the supply ware
house at unusual hours, before the doors
were opened for the transaction of business,
and hauled off in carts and wagons, and that
on one occasion they had followed a cart
containing four barrels of pork, to sec if it
went to the frecdmen's ration house. They
ascertained that it did not. We investiga
ted this particular case. Captain Rosekranz
stated that he knew nothing about it. His
brother, a citizen, whom he has employed to
act as a commissary seargeant, stated that
the four barrels of pork alluded to were or
dered by himself to be taken from the store
house to the building from which rations are
issued to the freedmen, but that the driver
of the cart had made a mistake and took the
pork to the wrong place, a prvision store
kept by Mr. P. Mcrwin, and that immediate
ly on discovering the mistake he had it rec
tified and the pork returned to the store
house. Afterwards we called upon Mr. Mer
win, who stated that at axut the time Mr.
Rosekranz said the pork had been sent by
mistake to his store he borrowed four bar
rels of pork from Capt. Rosekranz, which he
had not yet returned. He also stated that
Capt. Rosekranz on that .day and after his
examination before us, called at his store and
requested him to return the four barrels of
pork immediately. Mr. Merwin further sta
ted that he had changed with Captain Rose
kranz two barrels of brown sugar for two
barrels of white sugar, and paid Capt. Rose
kranz five cents per pound for making the
THE REVEREND WIRZ.
Opposite Newbern, on the south bank of
the Trent river, there is a settlement compos
ed exclusively of freedmen, and containing
a population of about four thousand, whose
condition is truly deplorable. These unfor
nate people came within our lines and were
located there during the war. Tny are liv
ing in small huts, built by themselves of
lumber manufactured by hand ; these huts
generally containing but a single room, each
of which is occupied in most cases by large
families. The appearance of this settlement,
recently scourged with the small-pox, is well
calculated to excite the deepest sympathy for
the helpless condition of its inhabitants.
The decrepit and helpless among them are
supported by the government of the United
States, and the remainder procure an uncer
tain and scanty living from little jobs about
Newbern from fishing with small boats,
huckstering. &c. The Rev. Mr. Fitz, for
merly chaplain, presides over this colony as
Assistant Superintendent of the Bureau for
the Trent river settlement. This agent has
exercised the most arbitrary and despotic
power, and practised revolting and unheard
of cruelties on the helpless freedmen under
his charge. The outrageous conduct of this
man was brought to our attention by a dele
gation of freedmen from the settlement, who
called upon us and made statements in rela
tion to his oppressions and outrages which
we could scarcely credit. After hearing their
statements we visited the settlement, conven
ed the freedmen, investigated the charges
against this man. and ascertained that he
had been guilty of even greater wrongs and
oppression than had been complained of. In
addition to the testimony of the freedmen
we took the statements of four intelligent
ladies from the North, who are teaching
school in the settlement. Among the many
acts of cruelty committed by Superintendent
Fitz we found that he had in two instances
suspended freedmen with cords around their
wrists, their feet not touching the floor, and
kept them in this position, in one case four,
in the other case six hours ; that he sentenced
a freedman to an imprisonment of three
months for a trivial offence, that of wrang
ling with his wife. He kept another man
who was arrested for debt shut up in the
block house the prison for months, while
his wife and two children, reduced to abject
ilestitution, died with the small-pox, and
took him from the prison under guard and
compelled him to bury his last child in the
cradle in which it died. On another occa
sion, when one of his guards reported to
him that a colored woman had spoken dis
respectfully of him, without even inquiring
what the woman had said, he ordered her to
be imprisoned until tne next morning at nine
o'clock, when she should be brought before
him to answer for the indignity. In one in
stance he imprisoned six children for ten
days for playing in the streets on the Sab
bath day. He imposed a fine of sixtv dol
lars upon an aged freedman for having told
another freedman that he was about to be
arrested by Mr. Fitz. This poor old man,
not having the money to pay the fine, was
imprisoned until the next day, when his son
paid the same, with three dollars additional
as j ail tees.
The land upon which the huts in this set
tlement are built is owned bv certain heirs in
North-Carolina, and is held by the Freed
men s Bureau as abandoned property. A tax
which Superintendent Fitz says goes to the
support of the Bureau is imposed upon the
owner of eaeh hut for ground rent. If the
occupants fail to pay this tax promptly they
are either turned out into the streets or lm
prisoned, and in some instances huts have
been torn down by order of the Supennten
dent for non-pavment of the tax. All busi
ness transacted by these people is taxed for
the same purpose. Five dollars per month
is levied upon every little shop ; two dollars
on each fishing boat; five dollars on each
horse and cart, &c. The failure to pay these
taxes when due at once subjects the property
taxed to confiscation. We were unable to
ascertain what amount of money had leen
collected by Superintendent Fitz, or what
disposition had been made of it. The im
perfect manner in which his books were
kept would have rendered a lengthy an 1 (let-riled
examination necessary to arrive at
even an approximate idea of the amount of
money collected. In answer to a question as
to what justification there was for the op
pressive burdens he had imposed upon these
people. Superintendent Fitz replied that
Captain Seeley told him, "I must have a
thousand dollars a month from that settle
ment." . He also furnished us with a sworn
statement, herewith forwarded, marked " E,"
in which he attempts to defend his conduct
by stilting that-he acted in obedience to the
orders of his superior officers in the Bureau.
CAT. SEELEY SCREENING HI8 SUBORDINATE.
In an interview we had with Capt. Seeley
that officer evinced a desire to shield Super
intendent Fitz by statins that a creat deal
of what was said against him resulted from
prejudice, notwithstanding he had the sworn
testimony before him that the charges against
Fitz were true.
BUREAU OFFICERS SHOOTING DOWN A FREED
While at Newbern. investigating the con
duct of the officers of the Bureau, and the
reported oppressions of the freedmen by this
class of persons, our attention was called to
the .alleged killing of a freedman by a white
employee ; of Colonel Whittlesey. Assistant
Commissioner of the Bureau of North-Carolina,
and the Rev. Horace James, formerly
assists quartermaster, on their plantation
in Pitt County. Mr. James, while in the
United .States service, was Superintendent of
the Burenu for the district now under charge
of Captain Seeley, and is now an agent of
the TJurena. -without pay, for the County in
which he is planting. The circumstances
under' which this freedman was killed, ns
stated by Mr. James himself, were as follows:
TJie .freedniuji jwas Accused ,of stealing pro
visions from the store of Col. Whittlesey
nnd Mr. 5 James, was arrested, tried and con
victed by Mr. James, as agent of the Bureau,
and was sentenced to dig ditches on their
plantation. While working out this sen
tence he ran away, and was pursued by
. James and his clerk, Boyden, who arrived at
the bank of a river while the freedman was
attempting to cross in a canoe. Boyden or
dered him to return, telling him that if ho
did not he would shoot, and the freedman
disregarding this order, Bovden fired. Boy
den states himself that he thinks he hit him,
and as nothing has ever ever been heard of
the freedman since it is generally believed in
the neighborhood that he was killed and
fell from the canoe into the river. These
facts were stated in a letter forwarded to
Colonel Whittlesey, who returned it to Cap
tain Seeley, with the following endorsement :
Raleigh, March 28, 1866.
Respectfully returned, as the affair seems
to have occurred at night, and, as the lody
of the negro has not been discovered, it does
not appear certain that the shot took effect.
No further action in the case seems to be
called for. Bv order of
Col. WHITTLESEY, Ass't Com'r.
Beecher, Ass't Adj't General.
A number of the freedmen at Newbern ex
pressed dissatisfaction at the manner in
which this case had been passed over with
out investigation : but as the plantation is
quite remote from any public line of com
munication, we were unable, owing to want
of time, to inquire into the matter.
affairs at kinston.
On the 2d instant we left Newbern for
Goldsboro,' and on the way stopped at Kin
ston long enough to learn that Capt. Wheel
er, agent for the Bureau at that point, is en
gaged in working a large plantation on his
own account, and employs thereon quite a
number of freedmen.
At Goldsboro' the Superintendent, G. O.
Glavis, Chaplain United States Army, is cul
tivating one farm on government account,
and is interested in cultivating two farms on
his own account. This officer stated in his
examination before us that he was not inter
ested in the cultivation of plantations, except
indirectly by loaning money to a Mr. Brooks,
a friend of his from the North, who was en
gaged in planting ; but we ascertained from
Mr. Carr and Mr. Lane, citizens of the vicin
ity of Goldsboro,' that he is interested and
joined with them in contracts for the culti
vation of their plantations. He and his
friend Mr. Brooks -entered into a contract
with Mr. Lane to furnish rations and pay for
forty laborers, and to provide eight good
mules. Mr. Lane offered to furnish the land
and to superintend in person the cultivation
thereof, the crops to be equally divided, one
half to Mr. Lane and the other half to Mr.
Brooks and Glavis. Mr. Lane states that
the enterprise failed after the freedmen had
worked over two months; they then left,
Brooks and Glavis having failed to pay
them according to contract. The freedmen
received for their labor a little clothing,
such as coats, pants, shoes. &c, furnished by
Chaplain Glavis, and but little or no money.
A similar contract was made by Glavis and
Brooks with Mr. Carr, who stated to us that
Chaplain Glavis is paying the hands in " a
little of everything, but chiefly in clothing."
SELLING FREEDMES'8 CLOTHES.
We ascertained by the testimony of Messrs.
Barham & Ballard, auctioneers at Golds- j
boro,' that they had sold at auction for Chap
lain Glavis fortv blankets marked " U. S."
and a quantity of clothing that had been
sent to Goldsboro' for gratuitous distribu
tion to the needy bv a Freedmen s Aid Soci
ety nt or in the vicinity of Rochester. N. Y
We learned also that he had disposed of i
large amount of such clothing at private sale.
1 he chaplain stated himselt that he had re
ceived from such sales two hundred and
sixty dollars ($'3G0,) though subsequently he
asserted that the total cash receipts of his
othce trom ail sources amounted to one hun
dred and twentv-six dollars and fifty cents
($120 50.) He kept no books or even mem
oranda ot moneys received and expended.
THE WILMINGTON AGENTS.
On the 4th instant we arrived at Wilming
ton, the headquarters of the Bureau for the
Southern district of North-Carolina, of which
Col. Rutherford is the Superintendent. The
Colonel has been here but a short time, and
is not yet tully acquainted with the opera
tions of the Bureau in his district. He was
so unwell that he was obliged to retire
while we were engaged in examining his of
fice, and wc have not since conferred with
Major J. C. Mann, Assistant Quartermaster,
and financial agent ot the Southern district,
is engaged in the cultivation of a rice plant
ation a short distance from Wilmington, on
which are employed fifty-five freedmen. The
Major stated that while he would not object
to making money, he engaged in this bust
ness to convince the Southern people that
the negro would work.
ONE WAT OF INDUCING INDU8TRT.
Major Charles I. Wickersham, sub-agent
of the Bureau, whose headquarters are at
Wilmington, is also interested in the cultiva
tion of a rice plantation within his sub-dis
trict, and he is to receive one-fourth of the
crops from the same for compelling the
freedmen employed on said plantation to
work faithful'. He explained the manner
in which he compelled freedmen to comply
with their contracts by stating that be put
them to work with ball and chain on the
streets of Wilmington.
EVILS OF THE SYSTEM.
Without attempting to discuss the pro
priety of officers of the Bureau in the milita
ry service ot the United States, who are paid
by the government for the performance of
their duties, engaging in private business,
and employing freedmen for such purposes
while controlling through their official po
sitions tuat class or labor, we deem it our
duty to state some of the effects produced,
both upon the officers themselves and upon
the planters with whom they come in com
petition, by such conduct. Maior Wicker
sham. in contracting to furnish forty laborers
to work a nee plantation, becomes at once
interested against the laborers, whom he
compels to labor, perhaps uniustlv, when un
fairly dealt with by the person working them
on the plantation; and on their refusing to
work, he inflicts upon them unlawful, and,
for a breach of contract,, unheard of punish
ment, putting them ouebain gangs as if they
were convicted criminal. Col. Whittlesey,
or any other officer of less rank and influ
ence in the Bureau, ho are engaged in
working plantations rented for cash or on
shares, beeomes interested in securing a low
rate of wages and in making the most strin
gent labor regulations, to the great detri
ment of the freedmen. They thereby give
the sanetion of the government to the estab
lishment of wages far below what the labor
is really wontli. Officers of the Quartermas
ter's and Commissary Departments who are
thus engaged are subjected to the tempta
tion of appropriating to their own use quar
termaster's efcores and rations to supply and
pay their own laborers. Complaints have
been made to me by the planters that these
agents of the Bureau use tte power of their
positions to obtain and control the best labor
in the State. There is no doubt that some
of the ill feeling manifested toward the Bu
reau on the part of the planters is attributa
ble to this fact.
ARBITRART JOWKB F THE BUREAU.
The arbitrary power exercised by some of
the officers and agents of the Bureau in mak
ing arrests, imposing fines and inflicting
punishments disregarding the local laws and
especially the statute of limitations, creates
prejudice against the government. If the
officers were all honest and intelligent, with
even limited. legal information, it might be
safe .to trust them with this extraordinary
power; but in many instances the officers do
not possess the slightest knowledge of law.
At Goldsboro,' the agent,' Captain Glavis,
imposed a fine ef $25 on one freedman for
stabbing another so severely as to endanger
his life, and when interrogated by us relative
to this case he stated that he did not know
enough about law to distinguish a civil from
a criminal case. '-.;
We are satisfied that the recommendation
which we made in reference to the with
drawal of the officers of the Bureau in Vir
ginia, and the transference to the officers
commanding the troops, of such duties as it
may still be necessary to perform in connec
tion with the freedmen, is equally applicable

Mr Dear Sir : When I saw the article

a reply. You will notice my letter, publish

Rev. Horace James is the same who was
Capt. James, A. Q. M., a man who has ever
lived above reproach in all matters. As to
these gentlemen owning plantations, I do
not doubt it. There is no speculation in the
matter. It is true that many officers, all
through the Sout h, and not confined to the
Freedmen's Bureau, have invested what little
money they could in this way. I never have
found any cases ot tne prostitution ot official
position tor private gain. Jur volunteer ot-
ficers are soon to leave the service, and, like
provident men generally, they seek to secure
some livelihood. General Whittlesey has
worked hard in his official capacity, and I
believe he has never been charged with using
his time other than tor the government. J

The people cried, "Hie negroes will not
work." Therefore I urged the renting and
running of plantations to afford practical ex
ample, to encourage joint companies. The
same malcontents who raised the false alarm
that the negroes will not work in freedom,
now seek to blacken the reputation ot every
man who has shown the falsity of their the
ories by practical demonstration, and declare
that official position is used to rob them of
their hands. We had large accumulations
of poor people, and wc did set them at work.
I have not yet the tacts as to XNorth-Uaroli-ha

sured that every shadow of accusation of
complicity in crime on the part of those offi
cers there is utterly without foundation.
I expect denunciation of this Bureau ; but
the same denunciation could be made against
the Treasury Department, or any other de
partment, and of the government, with equal
show of justice. The Bureau does not do
enough to secure the rights of the negro, I
will admit ; bnt it does not burn neirro
churches and school houses ; it does not re
ject negro testimony. It will endeavor to
prevent starvation until the next crop conies
in. It will always keep its legitimate ob
jects clearly in view in promoting industry,
education and justice. Very respectfully,

Messrs. Editors : I have no time to an

of attempting to exonerate himself from
charges preferred in the New York Herald.
There is, however, one painful occurrence

escaped from the guard, and in attempting
to arrest him a white man employed by Capt.

As to the other false charges contained in

that no officer has, to my knowledge, neglec

to assist those who arc trying to revive the
industrial interests of the State, probably
the land owners, who profit most by such use
of capital, will not be very eager to condemn

organized under a charter lrom the Legislature,
with a capital of lp0,000, which, together witL '
the accumulations that are continually increasing
in proportion to its liabilities, gives abuudaui
Becurity for all its obligations. Ita assets are
safely and securely invested; its directors an
among the oldest and most substantial citizens o
Hartford, men of influence, experience iu busi
ness, and wealth, to whom the public can loop
for a careful supervision and guardiauship ovci
its business and affairs.
It Is a stock company, issuing policies upon
the participating as well as non-participating
plan the accumulations from each plan, are kepi
distinct, aud the expenses ot the company art
borne by each in proportion to the amount oi
business. The entire profits on the participating
plan, except six per cent, annually on capital
(.$150,000,) belong to the insured and are divided
among them every year after the second year. It
gives to the insured these advantages ove a purely
mutual company : 1st The additional security ol
the capital. 3d. The guarantee of its permanent
success in the careful supervision ot its business '
by the directors and stockholders which their pe
cuniary interest will secure. 3d. Economy in
management, as the general expenses of the com
pany are divided between the two departments.
4th. All the benefits of dividends ; and 5th. None
of the liabilities usual in mutual insurance.
The accumulations of this company, January 1,
I860, amounted to the round sum of $1, 036,823 05,
andit will be seen its disbursements tor the yeai
1865, including all losses paid, only amounted to
twenty-six per cent, of the receipts of the com
pany for the same time; an exhibit less than any
life company in the country, and showing thi
economy of its management.
The large number of policies issued in 186E
(8,809) shows how great a favorite, and the degree
of confidence the public have in this iustitution.
It has never had a law suit upon the payment ol
a policy, but has in every case met its losses
promptly and liberally.
It bus never refused to renew a policy lapsed bj
the interruption of the late war.
No more certain provision can be made foi
one's family than to insure in this company.
It is commended to the citizens of North
Carolina by the following participants :

i ver, and many nights while in bed the pain would
I'come so excruciating that I was compelled to
et out of the bed aud sit up until the pain would
ubside. I procured a few boxes of the Southern

real relief. I continued to use the Pills for two

IN CONSEQUENCE OF THE RECENT
;reat decline in gold and silver, and all the mate
rials used in the manufacture of our goods, and
in anticipation of a still further decline, we have
-educed our prices to as low a point as they can
With Gold at Par,
so that no one need hesitate to buy a watch now
.'roui the expectation that it will be cheaper at
,ome future time. The test of ten years and the
manufacture and sale of
More than 200,000 Watches,
:ave given our productions the very highest rank
imong time-keepers. Commencing with the de
crmination to make only thoroughly excellent
vatches, our business has steadily increased as
he public became acquainted with their value,
intil for months together, we have been unable
o supply the demand. We have repeatedly en
arged our factory buildings until they now cover
ver three acres of ground, aud give accommoda
ion to more than eight hundred workmen.
We are fully justified in stating that wc now
nake MORE THAN ONE-HALF OF ALL THE
.VATCHES SOLD IN THE UNITED STATES,
the different grades arc distinguished by the
ollowing trade-marks engraved on the plate :
1. "American Watch Co.," Waltham, Mass.
2. " Appleton, Tracy & Co.," Waltham, Mass.
3. " P. 8 Bartlett," Waltham, Mass.
4. " Wm. Ellery."
5. OUR LADIES' WATCH of first quality is

authorize us to state that without distinction of
trademarks or price,
ALL THE PRODUCTS OF THEIR FACTORY
t ARE FULLY WARRANTED
to be the best time-keepers of their class ever
made in this or any other country. Buyers should
remember that unlike the guarantee of a foreign
maker who can never be reached, this warrantee
is good at all times against the Company or their
agents, and that if after the most thorough trial,
auy watch should prove defective in any particu
lar, it may always be exchanged for another. As
the American Watches made at Waltham, are for
sale by dealers generally throughout the country,
we do not solicit orders for single watches.
CAUTION. The public are cautioned to buy
only of respectable dealers. All persons selling
counterfeits will be prosecuted.
