The ease with which it runs, its ready adaptation to all kinds of work without delay or hesitation, its quiet fidelity, its Superior Strength and Durability of Work, are points that astonish and delight all who make its acquaintance. Ladies who are unfa miliar with this Machine, do not yet know the full blessing and comfort of a Sewing Ma chine in the family, though they may possess many others and think they are satisfied. In proof of this assertion is the significant fact, That its strongest (ulcocates and most enthusiastic admirers arc always found among those who have used and are most familiar with other leading machines. From the thousands of testimonials from all parts of the country, we select the following from the city of Augusta: AUGUSTA, March, 1870. Having used the Willoox & Gibbs Sewing Machine in our respective families upon all the various kinds of work required, some of us from one to six years, others for a shorter time, some of us also being familiar with the use of other leading machines, wo cheerfully recommend it as a most excellent family machine. It runs easily and quietly, is simple and easy in its management, does not get out of order, is always ready, its work is strong and durable, and in all respects gives most entire satisfaction, i Mrs. S.

Kemarks of Mr. Ilarrlman of Belfast, IN HOI'S K OK UF.PKKSKN'T ATIVES, March IS, in l.iyor nf t.ill an act additional to chapter 48 ot tin1 Revised statute-, concerning Manufactures. Mr. SrF.AKF.it :—I believe the principles embodied in this bill to lie right, that this act if it passes, will mend a defect in the law ; that the spirit of the law already comes tip to the principles of this bill, nn'd is only defective in the letter—and that it becomes our pi n ilege. our duty to make the amendment. The objection urged against it is that it authorizes the taking of property for private purposes. Let us examine tin's question for a moment and go hack to first principles and see how much we violate private rights. Titles to lands and real estate gen erally are derived from the State, and that title passes from hand to hand by deed, by inheritance, by possession, &e. The receiver of the title by deed obtains no better title than the State first gives. Non, when the State grants land to a tenant.it is always understood that it is granted subject to certain exceptions w hidi the sovereignty of the State retains in all cases when granted to citizens. Such arc the exceptions and regulations, that in some eases the grantee is wholly divested of all title without any considera tion whatever being paid back to him, in other cases the law authorizes the taking of the property and makes careful ' provisions for the payment of the value I of it. All lands granted to citizens arc held liable to taxation, and may be sold for i taxes and the grantee entirely divested of all right or title to the same without any payment back to him, and the only coin pensation or benefit he receives or can re ceive is from the sources, where the aniiuiig assessed is expended in sustaining the peace of the State or the benefit of ways, or of schools, &c\, the grantee's right is sacrificed to the public necessity'. Another mode by winch the- grantee’s title may be diverted without consideration to him, is by possession—an adverse party by holding openly notorious adverse exclusive and uninterrupted possession for ‘twenty years becomes sole owner of the premises by operation of law as surely as lie could by deed from the original grantee. There are some exceptions to this general rule. 'The public good and necessity re i quire that land shall be occupied and im proved. The grantee may be assessed i damages tinder the laws known as the j betterment laws, and made to pay sums j never contracted by him, and in default of 1 the payment of the same, may be divested , of his title. This is said to be required by public justice. Lund may bo taken for consideration to the use of the public for highways if the public good, tlie public convenience re quires it. It may be taken for the same I reasons for the location of school houses. It may be taken, overflowed lor private purposes—for the erection and use of mills and manfactories because the public good requires that water powers shall Vie brought into use and occupied. It may 1 be taken for private purposes, for railroads | and for railroad depots, because the public ; good requires it. The banks of a river or j stream may be overflowed for the public good, but the water may run to waste forever without the right to build a dam in some instances, unless a law like this be passed. I will give you an instance in point. A gentleman bought a small tract of timber land through which passed a stream with a fall suitable for a mill site —the premises were purchased with a view to building a mill suitable for nianu factoring trio lumber on the premises, but upon examination of the premises it was found that at the very place in the stream most suitable for building the mill, right ! on a bend of the stream, and over a ledge which protruded into trio stream on both -ides, right at the falls, the line of an ad joining owner's land just came to the stream, exactly where the most convenient [ and best place was to put the dam ; his i neighbor happened to he hostile to him. i and he was wholly unable to purchase the l ight to complete his dam on any reasona ' ble terms, and he was compelled at length 1 to build his dam farther down the stream where he owned trio land on both sides of it, at a much greater expense than would have been required in the proper place, by means of w hich dam he overflowed the very bank of the stream which he needed for his da n. Now , he could lawfully use that premises with water, but not for his ; dam, and it seems plain to me that all this 1 inconvenience was realized bv reason of j a detect in the law, which this bill will | carefully cure if enacted. As to the other feature of the bill, the wonderfully increased facility, safety and ' convenience recently realized in this cotin 1 try by the construction of canals or sluices to’ conduct and regulate water power j are so plainly self-evident, that there can not he a doubt but that the public good requires they should be facilitated, sus taint'd and protected by any reasonable legislation ; ami the feature ill this bill ; relating to canals, Ac., for manufacturing purposes, must, it seems to me, commend itself to every candid well-wisher for puli lie improvement. What improvement in the direction and use of watei power has been so completely successful and useful and safe as the diversion of water by ca nals and sluices ? Aud arc they not a public benefit ? The rapid, substantial and healthy growth of our neighboring city of Lewiston furnishes a filtiug refer ence. Why sir, you can survey a railroad track besiue a river and take what land you please for a depot. Is that a greater enterprise for the public good than a good manufacturing establishment which brings J the water power of a great river into use ? ’ Then if both conduce alike to the public good, why not give them like privileges? I think it ought to be done, and that the I passage of tins act is a good step in that direction. This bill docs not put the two ca^o.-. alike. In the railroad case thev take the land and settle the damages afterwards. In this bill application is made for leave to t ike the land ; but if this does not answer the purpose it submits the question to some other tribunal than the obstinate owner; [ so that it is not in ids power to block the
