Tho llrst year ho employed one man, nnd his sales amounted to eight bun dled dollars, but by Industry and persever ance bis business increased, and the third year lie built an addition to his shop 2,)x!i0 feet. Ills business continuing toliieicase and wanting moie loom be converted another building near by into a mint shop and connected It with Ids main shop build ing a passage way fifty feet longand llftcen feet from the ground, so as not to Interfere with tho main entrance to Ihe shop. In 1871 ho built a stole bouse 2.'ix72 and the snmoyear.ll lieing an unusually dry season, he put In an engine at a cost of seventeen hundred dollars.

He inanu facial es sixteen dilTeient styles, and send them to almost every maiket in the country, lloston, New Yoik, Philadel phia, I'altlniorc, New Orleans, and San Pianeisco. The huportanccof such a man ufacturing inteicst in a village like Me- chanlesviile can hardly be over estimated, affecting, as It does, every other branch ol industry lo a greater or less extent hi tho vicinity. One great advantage lo us; thank lo the perseverance of our postmaster X. It.

Tin: Karris.-Oni" day last week Kills iV Co.' billiard room was Ihe scene of a icguhir kiiock-dovvn-nnd-drag-out perforin mice. It seem that theie wasiidlo a little gathering, a usual, in Ihe evening, after Hie stoic aie shut up, composed of Ihe bar-room grade of character that usually assemble there. 1 1 Is said that a dispute arose, w liieh al llrst sccmeil lilvial, about who could hold oul a given weight In one hand the longest, one young deik assert Ing that be could beat the crowd in holding out. At this Div, llio largest proprietor, 111 etl up, ami called him some pot-homo name, and pitched at him and knocked him down upon tho Hour In tho most " beef flitter" style, vvheio ho lay and bleated like a calf, as the bystanders say. lie xooii lighted up again, and Hie said lighting piopilctor " went for him," but one of tho lookcrson thought ho had Dunn enough, and pi evented a second fall of humanity, The eyes of said cleik arti gracefully draped In mourning, around the edge of a pair of giccii goggles, If all the patron of that billiard saloon aie as liberally anil promptly deall with, we shall make our selves scarce In " their party." We would inquire who Is the next victim who wishes to be knocked down nnd rolled about upon Ihe lloor, and have Ids " eyes light." Anne.

Hut a few; miles from us, hi Itlpton, it is said the snow is now four feet deep. 'I'liu Ilriiiiiliiii llltlitiliicliiiiiit.' C'iiiii null)'. Among the many manufacturing In tcicsts of tlie Stale that are worthy of commendation, the manufacturing of scales takes a specially prominent place from the fact that we have monopolized this branch of manufacture and made II a Vermont Institution, and on account of the excel, lcnce and acuracy of Ihe aitlde inanufae lined, and the zeal and energy shown hi their Introduction. Vermont I noted alike throughout the world for her marble and scales, and liulland County bids fair to he me the headquarter of both. Among the manufacturer of scales the Brandon Manufacturing Company stands iie-cmiiieut. Organized in lfOH, it lias hi llio short spaeh or live icars built up a large business and added gieally to the wealth and impoitnncc of liramlon, The vi oik of this Company me situated near Hie centre of that bii'y little town and have the eontral of all the water of ltiandon liver ; Ihey are spread over eleven and a half acres of land. The shops, foun deries, etc., have at picsont an area of 102,- 0I feel of Homing lo which largo additions will have lo be made the coming season. We can form a more correct Idea of the magnitude of Hie vvoiks by tracing the growth of the scale and noting its different stages, thnn by any oilier mean. Suppose we begin here with this heap of iron. Here we ate told are American and Scotch pig iron, car wind and scrap iron, each kind of which lias a paiticidar duty to pcrronn. I he Scotch iron is Hie finest of foreign iron, while the car wheel and scrap i used for the strength it gives. Xow wo come lo t lie foundry, which, when Mr. Sprague took charge of the Company, was a small concern, occupying only a corner of the large building now required. Kven this has proved inadequate and an addition of 2,880 sqttaie lect will be built tin year. On your left hand is the brass fonndry, wlicro ! 00,000 pounds of brass are used each year in Hie manufacture of scale beams and w eights alone. Opposite the brass foundry is tlie chilled iron foundry, wheic a man lier of men are engaged in making those chilled iron bales that fill so important a pail in tlic economy of the "Howe Scale," of which anon. Looking down the long iron foundry you see all tlie scales In the rough, from the small Post Olllcc scalo that marks the weight in ounces of a ladles letter to tlio gigantic railroad scale that w eighs your marble. The next (step is the machine shop, but on our way there wo will stop for a few minutes to examine tho lumber yards, dry houses, tin sltops, etc. The lumber yards nro pilled high up Willi the finest of hard wood lumber, and the dry-house Is filled with !!23 cords of wood In process of sea soning. All the wood used In the mami- faetuie of the scales has to undergo a sea soning of twelve months. Tho tin shop Is driven to its utmost ca pacity in endeavoring to supply the scale pans, scrap, etc., that are a pint of each grocer scale. Xow wo begin to hear the w liirl and jar of the lnaclduerv and find out- selves In a large building every inch of which is utilized. A net work of belts Is over our heads, and laths, planers, etc., are all about us, so that you have lo walk cir fiimspcctcdly or you will catch your head by the one and be turned out in a scale beam by the other. 'There Is our scale, ly ing among a bundled other, that those woikinen are turning over. They will all be adjusted, cleaned, etc., and then taken to the wood shop, wheio llio scales will ic ceivo its platform and a pillar, made from the seasoned wood we have mentioned. In lid shop ate tho celebrated machine, that tho Ilninilou Manufacturing Company have, manufactured for their own Use, for milk big scale beams. They mu perfect hi their way and display gteat ingenuity. Tlie sealing, painting and lacking looms come next hi older. Hero we find men testing and sealing each scale that goes out of the factory, giving It his cateful alien lion, so that there 1 not n vaiialioii of a hair in Its accuracy. Tho paint shop and Japanning looms are filled with scale un dergoing their finishing touches. That scale I being painted in gay colors and ornamented with bronze, to meet the Inslo and fancy of the oirntic Henchman; while Ibis one is destined to register the weight of lea to an almond-eyed Celestial. 'The lacking room will have to complete our lour of observation for the picsent, al though much remains to bo noticed. Here we see the last of our scale, and bill it good bye ns a woikinan park It, with II high polished brass beam and all its other part, anil consigns it lo Hie freight house. Time and space am wanting lo speak of tlio store house, wlieio tons of screws, nails and washer, paints, paper, Ac., itc aio stored ; or of the pattern shop, with lis qunrlcr ol a million dollars worth of pat tern, a we must hasten on to notice the cnterpiiso and work the company has ae. compllslicd. In 1B0H, when Mr. Sprague assumed the picsldcncy of the company, they cm. ployed only twenty-seven men, and occu pled only a part of tho woiks now used, Xow they aio Inci casing their woiks every day, mid are driven to their utmost capacity, and haie a working force of three lain. died men. 'Their scale are sold In every country under Hie sun, Ily all railroad and steamboat Hue they tire used as a standard aulliotlty wherever henvy weigh lug I (lone. The peculiar advantage claimed for tlie Howe dalform and irro cei's scale l that all ils bearings are pro tected from rust and dust. Their hay scale is to be prcfcricd to nil others, because it icquhcs lit Ho or no excavation, nnd the healings aie protected by those (hilled iron bails we have mentioned, which rest on conclave surfaces, and receive all the lateral and jarring motion. We saw one of lliese scales that had been In constant use for eight years, and had weighed thousands of Ions, (he beam of which to-day- would turn willi the weight of llitee pound. It will be lcinembcrcd that these scales were the standmd tutthoilly In the army, more than -1,000 being used In the late war. We weie slitick vvllh the appearance (r Hie employe or Ihe company. Xoue bill skilled woikmi'i! mo employed, which Tnet la plainly numifes! In the e(('llenee of the wotk. These scales have leeched medals or di ploma wherever they have been exhibited, Including the American Institute, Massa chusetts Mechanic Chaillable Association, and the Paris Exposition. They look the first medal thai was awarded by the Ver mont Agricultural Society, In the very home of tho Knlrbaiiks -they, for some unexplained lenson, not putting hi mi ap pearance Itcsidcs scales, this company manufac tured 110,000 wcighmastciV beam the pasl year, to he used principally hi the South ern Slates In weighing cotton, nnd an e.x tensive line of baggage, expioss and other trucks, of tlie most durable and substan tial woikinanshlp, which our space will not allow us lo consider. The vtotks of this company have been of Incalculable profit to ltiandon. There was a time when we thought ltiandon was rather preparing for a ltlp Van Winkle slumber, but she has shaken that lethargy oil' entirely, and some of her larger sister towns will have to look well lo their laiitcl or they will be left far behind. Tills season, foity to f II 1 1 v buildings arc in process of erection, and the population ha increased beyond all comparison. 1 he company is composed of wealthy mil substantial men, and Hie president. -Air.
