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, aro point!) that astonish anil 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 advocates and most enthusiastic admirers are always found among those who have used and arc most familiar with other leading machines. From the thousands of testimonials from all parts of the country, wo select the following from the city of Augusta : AUGUSTA, March, 1870. Having used the Willoox A 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 boing familiar with the use if other leading machines, we 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 ia strong and durable, and in all respects gives moat entire satisfaction.

Among her pas sengers were many prominent citizens of New York; and the news of the dreadful shipwreck carried poignant sorrow to hun dreds of households. Early in October, when the steamer had been long overdue in the port of New Y'ork, on her return voyage from Liverpool, vague apprehen sions of disaster began to prevail; and, as day after day passed without tidings of the missing vessel, wild rumors filled the air. From day to day, the feeling of dread became intensified, and the excite ment hourly increased. Finally, late in the night of the yth of October, a rumor suddenly spread thro' the city to the effect that the Arctic actually had been lost; there had been a fearful loss of human lives; that a solitary survivor had returned, and that Ibis survivor had brought authen tic intelligence of the disaster. This report reached the ear of the abs tain who was in charge of the city depart ment of the Times; but it reached him at an advanced hour of the night, when all but himself had finished their labors, and had returned to their homes. Sending out reports in all directions, v.ith strict charge to spare no pains in sifting the ru mors of the night, lie strove to gather au thentic intelligence, but the effort was futile. The reporters returned with news that no trace of the survivor's movement could he found. A paragraph was accord ingly written, announcing, in guarded phrase, that rumors of the total loss of the Arctic had been current during the night, hut that nothing of a definite "char acter was knoYvn. This announcement placed in a prominent part of the Times, under a displayed heading, was all that it was possible to say. Discomfited, dis couraged and apprehensive, the head of the city department then departed for his home. Blit the adventures and the excitement of the night were not destined to be so speedily finished. The perturbed editor, instiucively feeling that there was some thin;; yet unrevealed, mused while dozing in the horse-ear, at the hour of three o'clock in the morning, and his strong nerves made him sensitive. Scarcely had the car gone a half mile from its starting point, when a stranger, hurriedly coming down a side street, jumped upon the rear plat form evidently in an excited state, and be gan a conversation with the conductor in the hurried and incoherent manner ot a man who had simultaneously heard start ling news, and had indulgeif in conviviali ty. The disjointed sentences which fell from tlie lips of this man furnished a clue to the watchful editor in the furthest corner of the ear, whose hearing was acute, as his professional pride was seriously woun ded—for defeat in the search of news sits heavily upoil the soul of a newspaper man. The words “Arctic"—“only man who had got it"—“Burns’"—“St. Nicholas Hotel"—Herald office"—“all night"— “tired out"—“bottle wine”—conveyed dis tinct ideas. The words formed themselves into this shape in the mind of the weary watcher in the corner: “A man by the name of Burns has escaped from the wreck of the Arctic : lie is at the St. Nicholas hotel; he lias pushed on towards New York as fast as possible after landing; lie lias gravitat ed to the Herald office, knowing that the Herald pays well for exclusive news; the Herald has got his story, and there is a trick to keep it away from ull other pa pers!" Out of the car dashed the Times man; down Broadway he tore ; across the parkland up to the printing-room of the Times he rushed. There he found the foreman placidly putting on his coat in preparation for departure. “Stop the press!" was the tirkt order issued. “Why?” inquired the foreman. “Because the Herald ha-; got hold of a survivor of the Arctic, and is trying one of his old games ; but we'll beat yet!” A bell tinkled; a message went down the speaking tube which leclfrom the com posing room to the cellar; the gTeat press stopped. A workman in the press room was called up, and these words passed: “South, you know the Herald office; they've got hold of a story about the Arc tic, which belongs to alt the press, and they mean to keep it, and cheat us out of it. 1 want a copy of it. I want you to get it any way you cau; will you do it?" "How do you know they’ve got it?” The circumstances were recited. "AH right'.’’said South, “I’ll get it, pro vided you don’t ask me any questions." The promise was given. South depart ed, to return a few minutes afterwards with the information that the Herald office was all alight, (the boor was about four o'clock in the morning); that the press room was fast locked, and that all the carriers and newsbovs had been excluded. “What shall I do asked South. ••Get the first copy that comes off the press,” was the order instantly given. ••Buy it, beg it, steal it, anything, so long as _\ on get it; and to-morrow you shall get Ally dollars for your trouble.” "Ktiough said,” observed South. Twenty minutes later he appeared in the oflice ol' the Times (then at the corn of Beckman and Nassau streets) with a copy ot the Herald, containing Air. George It. Burns’ narrative of the loss of the Arctic, entire, printed in double leaded type. Meanwhile the whole force of the Times compositors had been routed out of their beds by messengers sent in urgent haste ; each man stood at his "case,” "stick” in in hand, and when South returned, waving the next morning's Herald triumphantly over his head, a mighty “hurrah!" went up, which might have been heard for sev eral blocks The Herald “copy” was cut up into four-line "takes:” in an hour the whole story was in type, and the peoplo of the Herald, blissfully unconscious that a copy of that journal had been adroitiy ab stracted, withheld all their city circulation until 9 A. Al., sending off only the mail copies containing the long expected re lation of the dreadful disaster. By 8 o’clock in the morning the Times was pro curable at all the news stands in the city, I and its subscribers had received the news
