Theonly Machineoflhe kind that hasstood thefstand Riven satisfaction to the public. It has surplanted every Smut Machine yet offered in the State, more or less of which has been taken down to make room for it. The politic need fear no imposition, as there are now some 2S0 Machines running in N C; and I wish to offer no other references than the gentlemen who are using them, whose expectations have been more than realized in (heir performance. It not only thoroughly cleanses the Wheat of smut, but also purifies it of all other substances, almost to perfection. It takes up but 4 feet square in the Mill, and requires but little power. It is warranted for five years against breaking or wearing out, and also to retain its cleaning qualities for that time. There are a number of these Machines through which 100,000 bushels ot Wheat have been cleaned, and they have never been out of order one day. There was awarded to it the Premium at the Maryland State Fair, and a Premium with a Silver Medal, at the Fair of the Maryland Institute, at Baltimore, last Fall.
