Ladies who are unfa miliar with this Machine, do not yet kn w the full blessing and comfort of a Sewing Ma chine in the family, though they may p -sess many others and think they are satisfied. In proof of this assertion is the signiticant fact, That its strongest advocates and must enthusiastic adniirers are always found among those who have used and are most familiar with other leading machines. — From the thousands of testimonials I. >m all parts of the country, wo select the following from the city of Augusta : AUGUSTA, March, 1870. Having used the Willcox A Gibbs Sewing Machine in our respective families upon all the varioua kinds of work require 1, some of us from one to six years, others for a shorter time, some of us also bem. familiar with the use of other leading machines, we cheerfully recommend it as a mo-t excellent family machine.

The editor of the Aroostook Sunrise, now a member of the Legislature, sends a correspondence to that paper from this city, in which he gives some interesting recollections of Augusta and vicinity. He says: We have known Augusta since 1827. That year, then a young man, we “un packed" in this, then village. We lived here five' years.—The Kennebec bridge, called by the Journal last Monday, the “glorious old bridge,” was built that year. It has stood the tramp of men and horses, the assaults of floods, tee and floating debris of bridges and mills, logs and every im aginable ruin which has come floating down the raging, angry and roaring Ken nebec for almost forty-three years. We looked over its scarred and broken timbers j and covering on Monday morning last, I and although it is now somewhat unlike : in appearance what it was when it came ! from the hand of its builder, yet it still i stands, and bids fair to stand, until it shall ! have accomplished much more than its I half century. Kphraim Ballard, in his day the best j carpenter in Augusta, and, perhaps, in Maine, was the master-builder. Mr. ! Charles Keen, who was in skill only I second to Mr. Ballard, w as mastcr-work 1 man, and used the square, compasses j and ten foot pole. In 1828 the military road from Lincoln to Iloulton was com menced, and Mr. Ballard had a large con tract for making that load in Lincoln. The “Ballard hill" in that town took its name from him. He was taken sick whilst i engaged on that road, and died, we be i lieve, in Bangor, whilst on his way home. He was one of Hod's noblest men. Mr. Keen is still living in this city. The bridge ! previous to this, was burned some time in ! the early part of 1827. The last day of December, 182"), we spent in Hallowell, on our way from home in what is now i Franklin county, to White-field, to instruct a school. It rained all the night previous and during the day iu torrents. January 1st, 1820, wc attempted to cross the Ken nebec on the ice, but was iold it was not safe. We accordingly went to Augusta to ; cross on the bridge.—Whilst we were crossing the bridge, the ice was breaking up in the river, pitching, piling, and toss ing about in wild and grand confusion. ■ The ice broke tip as far down as the flats near Brown’s Island., where it grounded, formed a jam and remained during the : winter, it was said that the river was full to the bottom, except passages for the water to pass off. On tho 2(>th of March it broke up again, from the effects j of a great rain and the melting snow, making an “ice freshet,” and formed a dam below Hallowell, and that village ! was submerged; the water high up in Water street, tilling cellars and lower I stories of houses and stores, and destroy ; ing a vast amount of property. The height of the water at that time is marked in ! Kennebec How in that city. 1 Hallowell has within our recollection ; been three times submerged, in conse | quence of the ice breaking up early in the winter, grounding on the flats below the 1 town, and then again breaking up with a rain whilst the ice was strong, jamming j below the town, and flowing back the water and creating a flood : once in 1820, again in 1848, or T4, and again on Sunday last. It was also submerged about 1800, from the same cause. We should think ! that people would find some other place to live and do business than on the lower street in Hallowell. In June, 1882, oc curred a freshet which swept the Kenne bec. It rained three days and nights con tinually. The water was within a very few feet of the stringers of the bridge. It passed through tinder the bridge between the pier and the abutments with tearful velocity, the water appearing some four feet higher above the bridge than below. The river was covered with logs, trees aud the debris of mills, bridges buildings, dams, fences and almost every i imaginable thing that would float. The span of a bridge came down whole and went under the bridge. A whole saw mill came down having piled in it a large 1 quantity of boards. It approached the | eastern span of the bridge, and the thou sands who were looking on held their breath, expecting that it would topple over the bridge. But instead of this, the mill and all in it were crushed like a child’s cob-house, and the shapeless mass j went under the bridge. A loud cheer went up from the lookers I on. A large pile of pine boards above which every body supposed was far above where the’ water could come, was floated . off by the rising flood, and started for down river. Two men got on the pile, and with the batteau in tow, came down [ the river. As it approached the bridge one of the adventurous men left in the r batteau, but the other stuck to his boards i and went safely under, by lying flat upon his pile. A cheer which almost made the bridge itself tremble, went up from the crowd of lookers-on. He brought in-> . boards safely in, below Hallowell. The first Legislature which met hi Au gusta was in 1882. The corner-stone of the State House was laid July 4th, 1828, by tho Grand Lodge of Masons of Maine, in the presence of Gov. Lincoln. The corner-stone which was then placed in position is the northeast corner, and has an orifice in it which con tains among other papers a copy of tho constitutions of the United States, aud of Maine, the names of the then President and executive officers of the United States, of the Governor and principal officers of Maine, copies of the Kennebec Journal of that week, which at that time was the only paper published in Augusta, and various other documents. Governor Lincoln died the same year in a few mouths afterw ard, iu Augusta, and was buried with military I honors on the grounds iu trout of the i i State House. j In 1832 the Legislature met for the first 1 time ig Augusta. Samuel £. Smith was • Governor, aud Benjamin White, Speaker ' of the House. In that Legislature were the following men who hare since, or are now distinguishes!. Robert P Dunlap.
