This splendid establishment—situated a fcw rods west of the track of the Mo bile and Ohio Railroad, at Beaver Mea dow, twenty-six miles from this, city— w** formally inaugurated on Wednesday 12th of Eebruary, 18(38, and is now in •ucoeesful opera!ion. It is the result of ftrictl; Southern enterprise, energy aud capital. There are hut few mills in the United States of greater capacity, aud a atill leas number which affords within its walla the combination of room and conve nience so evident at a glance—as this one. Convenience is economy in time and labor and that is ono of the chief points atenüy kept in view by tho master ehanie who superintended the arrange ment of the machinery aud details of the mill, and most happily has succeeded. The building consists of a machine room 102 feet by 30 feet, and a basement under the rag engine room 40 feet by 80 fceL—tho whole enclosed by a wall of red sandstone procured in the immediate vicin ity. A division wall separates the ma chine room—in which the paper is made— from the basement in which are situated the steam engine, main line of shafting, and the draiuers in which the pulp is bleached witli chlorine before it is ground fine enough for paper. The rag engine room is 40 feet by 80 feet, built of wood, with rag room above of whole building is much better lighted and ventilated than is customary, having an unusual number of large windows—those in the machine room being arched and adding much to the beautiful of the building. The machinery consists of two boilers «6 feet long, 44 inches in diameter, and four flues each ; one small doctor steam engine for driving boiler pumps, and one large steam engine of eighty-horse power —cylinder 18 inches diameter with 36 inches stroke, and 18 feet diameter, fly wheel for driving the rag engines. The steam engines are beautiful specimens of workmanship, and together with the steam boilers, were built by the elebrated firm of Ainslie, Coehrau & Co. Louisville, Ky. The large rotary boiler, 20 feet long by 8 feet diameter, used for boiling paper atoek, waa also procured from the above firm, con nic The same size. appearance There arc four rug engines, of from four to five hundred pounds capacity, each driven by the stonm engine. Two tf these ar* termed washing engines, and Vom the rotary boiler and fiat into them and washed, one part of thé machinery of the engine* ao tiu g "POn 'he rag*, «erre* both ^® 11 , , Uuiu . while another part separates the dirty water from the rags and oarrtcs it to a waste-spout outside the engine, while a constant stream of clear water running in the engine keeps up the supply. fo»r hours tho rags have become pulp—which is then emptied from the en «"•*■*> 'he drainer/ with bleach,ng powders and vitriol added, where the pulp undergoes the process of bleaohing and becomes pure white. It is then taken ? ut *)" draincr » » nd P"' >"*> the be » 1 - tag engines and ground fine enough for making paper, and then emptied into a large cistern in the machine room below. The machine- so termed- is s large and beautiful one, of the kind denomina ted Foudrinier, named after the inventor, a Frenchman, and is the best kind in use for manufacturing paper. It is 72 inches wide, with seven lurge drivers 28 inches diameter each, which are heated by steam and drieB the paper as it them, and are so arranged that either Jhc exhaust steam from the steam engine or live steam from the boilers can be used for the purpose. Ten fine iron Callenders give a beautiful surface to the paper as it passes between them after it is dried and before being cut into sheets. The ma chine is about four feet high and sixty eight feet long, but from the numerous turns around rolls, drivers and Callen ders, the paper has to pass over about 125 feet space before if is completed. The weight of the machine exclusive of shaft ing is about fifteen tons, and is set up ten inch square timbers, which are laid on solid stone walls two feet thick. From one to two and a half tons of paper per day of twenty-four hours can be made on the machine, according to the size and thickness of the paper, and speed at wbioh the machine is run. From the machine the paper is counted by hand and tied up in bundles ready for market. As the success of a manufacturing es tablishment of almost any kind depends greatly upon the manner in which it is built, the Directors of the Company dis played much wisdom and prudence in the selection of the proper person to construct their beautiful mill. Mr. Wm. II. Sprntt, a gentleman of great experience and abil ity, who has works at Elkton, Cecil county, Maryland, is the person to whom they entrtistcd their work ; and most dilligcnt ly has he and his corps of thorough ma chinists labored, and faithfully executed their task. Everything which passed through their hands bears the stamp of a finished competent workman ; and the beautiful overshot water wheel, built, by Mr. Sprntt, which drives the machine—a little giant, 26 feet high, by 2} feet wide, is a perfect model of strength, beauty and accuracy. As tho South will undoubtedly soon cuter largely into manufactures of various kinds, any person or Company wishing the services of an "A No. 1" millwright and mechanic will do well to preserve Mr. Spratt's address,—as he is considered by competent judges ono of the best mechan ical engineers of this country.— Mobile Daily tribune. ** to cut out tke dirt at the same After lint—or aes around on of Rot Khslljr Prightcnad. It was many years ago, prior to the Revolution, when the good old laws of hanging people for numberless crimes (for which a short imprisonment answers now a-days) were in full vogue, that a small party were gathered one bright moonlight night in an eating cellar in tho city of New York, around an old table, from which the steam rose to the ceiling left the surface of a large dish of soup set in its centre. The party appeared merry hurnof ; and ns three noted char acters had that dav swung from the scaf fold, the topic of the conversation natur ally turned upon the execution. " Old Jake died game, at all events," said one of the men. " I'm 'fraid that's mor'n you'll do, tortedanother. " I don't fear death in any shape,' plied the first speaker. " You don't hey," suddenly chimed in a third person. " No I don't, nor I can't be scared ei ther," was the bragging answer. " You can't, hump!—allow me M doubt that, will you," sneered his opponent. ' ' If you don't believe it, you are freely privileged to test me, but mind you the consequences be on your own head, not mine." " Well, we'll see. people, do you?" " Not as much as living ones." " Very well. Now, then. I'll bet twenty dollars that you don't go down the scaffold and feed one of the men, hung ; ! as it in a in of a 80 is re rc You don't fear dead you to to-day, with some hot soup. " Are you in earnest?" " Never more so in my life ; there's the money—let us see you cover it." The boaster put his hand in bis pocket, drew forth a well filled wallet, and placed tweutv dollars more upon the table. " Then you take the bet !" exclaimed his opponent with surprise. '' 1 do. Let George hold the stakes." The preliminaries were soon all arran ged, and with a bowl of soup and a spoon, the boaster took his way to tho scaffold. happened that the Now it so person with whom he haul bet was a ventriloquist ; and no sooner had he left the house than his opponent also departed, taking a short by-way to the scaffold, by which he reached the place three or four minutes in advanoa of the soup-feeder, and getting under it, took his station behind one of the posts and awaited his coming. In a few moments the bragger appeared, and when at the foot of the steps he looked cautiously around him, and then quickly ascended and stood beside one of tiffs corpses.. The winds moaned and the chains creaked as the bodies mean« swung to and fro ; but without hesitation the boas ter seised the spoon and raised it full of soup to the dead man's lips. Now was the ventriloquist's time. As the handle of the spoon was raised, the corpse sud denly exclaimed, in the sapulohral tones of tiie dead—' ' It's hot !" " Well, d—n you, blow it then! tho iustaotSBeous retort of the feeder, ■ it he eoolly lowered the spoon, descended tlio scaffold, and took his way back to the cellar. The ventriloquist also made trucks for the same place, and fully testified that the bet had been fairly won, and swearing that after what had taken place, his oppo nent might brag as much as he pleased, but he wouldn't get another wager out of him.
