For the double purpose of convincing our friend of the Banner of the causes which produced the losses in this estab lishment, which he so strong!y relies on to prove the futility of our attempting to rival the Northern manufacturers-as well as. to warn those just embarkinein the business, we give below Mr. Wim. Gregg's clear and concise statement of the facts connected with the establish ment, and the management of the VUu cluse Factory. That gentIleman, himself at one time its part owner and sole manager, speaks as-one entitled to credence, and has no interests to subserve, having been en tirely disconnected with it for some years past. Its present proprietor is said to have conducted it in a very different manner from his predecessors, making it very profitable, and daily increasing those profits as his experience of the-bu siness increases. Mr. Gregg's state ment (extracted fiom. his essays on Do. mestic Indus:ry, published in 1845) is to the following effect-from it every one can see why the Vaucluse Factory was a failure in the first instance. The "facts" alone will account for the "fig, ures" which its books displayed. We hope no one will fail to tead this instruc tive narrative : I will now proceed to give a history of the Vaucluse Manufacturing Compa,. ny, and of its manufactturing establish nient, erected in the year 1833. Tis company wits no doubt stimulated to action by the disposition that pervaded this State about that time, for manufac turing, bringing into existence the Marl. horo, D.- Kalb, Salida, and two or three smialler mills, and it is truly unfortunate for this State, that such nsistakes should have been -made. Gen. MlcDuffie, and our worthy fel low-ci izen, the lon. Mitchell King, were two of the prtncipal stockholdets in the Vaucluse Company. One would suppose that such men, Pngarging in a entrprise, would hve giveii lie subject some sort of investigation. The posilion that these gentlemen occpy in the State, as to fortune and other things, is a proof of their aLility and eminent success in such enterprises as have en gaged their attention ; but unfortunately for them, in this instance, they only looked across the wiaters at tie promised land-they fited otit their bark for the voyage, but went to sleep at the helim. - This comoiy .obtained a charter fiom the .Legislature, and organized thenselve's by electing a President ar.d five Dixectors. They wrote to Parc-er son, N. J, for machinery, suited to the manuf'acture of cotton and' wool-fine and coarse cloth-assorted yarns, &c., thus, as wifl bo-.perceived, splitting on the same rock vhich wrecked the Salti, da Company. They committed the same error, of not looking beyond the supply of the immediate neighborhood, and so complicated their machinery as to render it impossible for it to produce profit, except by the nicest and most skilful managemtent. The present pro prietors of this establishment have sold the woollen machinery and are remodel ing the balance, but it will have to re ceive many additions in new machinery before it will be capable with the best managenment of turning out the qgnmity, per hand, that the Massachusetts tmills do. The strangest part of the story 1e mains yet to be told. As'above stattedl, this Company elected a President and five Directors to manage their affairs. This Board ordered the machinery to be made and sent out-aippointed an agent to superintend the erection of a suitable building, for it, and houses for thte otpet atives. Will the fact be credi ted, that this Board of Directors never l~ad a nheeting after its first organization, not even to receive the building from the contractor's hands ? Thte Factory ran thtus neglected Wy those appointed to look after its affnirs, for two years and six months, and is it sur prising that, instead of making money, they should have incurred a debt of $6000 I For tunately for the company, an individual undertook to purchase some of thieshares andi after possessing himself of a number sufficient to excite soma itnterest, lhe looked into matters and found the mill in charge of an ignorant Englishman, who received $5 per day. He knew nothing of the business, aind as wvas atf terwards proved, bad never before had charge even of a single departnent in a mill, lie was, in fact, otnly a common operative. 'witb neither truth nor hones ty in hint. This gentleman immediately determined to apprize the company of thieir real condition. It was with the greatest difficulty-that a sufficient number of the stock-holders could be brought together, to form a quotum, in orer that meastures of relief nicht be taken; and butt for the debt of $6000, which was~ about to go into judgment, it is vety questionable whether a meeting could have been obtained. The result of this inceting was that the property was of fered fdr sale. The gentleman alluded to above, who had putchased into the company, took up his abode at the Fac tory, as a summer residence-discharged the English overseer and took chat ge of the establishment in person-mado the Factory turn out double its former pro. duct-purchased the cotton and other supplies-sold the goods, &c., and in eight months yrevious to the sale made a nett sum for the oivners of about $11,000. This paid fhe debt and h ft a sulplus of $>000, and but for this cir comstance, the establishment would have sold for a mere song. The shares, fifiy-four and. a half in number, cost originally $1000 each. The sale pro due*ed about $750 per share. So endled the Vaucluse Manufacturing Company, ancf.it is"a matter of surprise that the stdckholders did not sink their entire capital. - T MATFRIAL Of TIE BattTis ARmy. -The military and naval expenditures of Great Britain. fur the last three years. have averaged more than twenty millions pounda sterling. The army consists of 138,000 men, only one third as large as the Fretnch army, but costing two thirds more. The system of purchasing com. missions prevails to a great extent, and involves. as it necessarily most, the most gross ubuses.tad cc rruption. An Ensiignacy costsC450,a Lieutenancy 9700, and a Ca >tincy Z1800. No previous services i? .qualificaiitng are necessary; the only requisites are family influenrce and tnoney. This aystem, together with the prodigal bestowal of brevets, have occasioned a great 'mul-titiplicity of officers. There are in the British army 9 Field Marshals, 284 Generals and Lieut. Generals, and 1025 Cononels and Lieut. Colonels. Most rf these officers are mere sinecures; the Colonel, for instance, never commands his regiment, and seldom sees it; his par. icular province, is, to see that the regi ment is supplied with clothing, which dnty is tnade a profitable job, yielding com.. amnly to uhidu~onal p - is alss a soure-of emolument to him. The first dignitaries of the lnnd, are Col nels of regiments. Prince Albert, the Duke of Cambridge, aud the Duake of Wellington. the two former Field Mar. shals, and the latter cormmander-in chief. are Colotels. and receive alaries as such. The pay of a C->lonel is .C1200. There i, also great preference shown, consequence of aridtncratic influence, to certain regiments over nthers. The Life Guards. tile Horse Guardi. and the Grena dier regiments are crack and favorite corps; they are made up exclusively of the younger-sons ot the nobility, and are for the most part quartered in Louclnon ar.d its vicinity. Each of them coninins a number of supernt merary officers, averag ing front seventy-two to one hundred and twenty. officers, while the tegular in fantry regiments have hut iwenty eight. . In the navy the ahmses are not st fli. grant ati extnsive. Naval commissions are never purchased. and experience and prfesuional knowledge are prerequisiies to promotion. The numher of'stpernume rary officers is large and increasing. There are one htndred and fifty Admirals, in the British navy, hesides fifty retired Ad nmirals, although only thirty-six ettn he enployed. At the present time there are only fourteen engaged in active service. The above information we have con densed from a hog an- interest'ng letter of the London correspotndent of thbd Ne w York Courier and Enquirer.

BIsEToN's APPIC.L TO THE PFO ria: oF .lssuua.-We find in one of the Washington pnpors received yesterday, an address from Senator lBentn to his con stituents, in which he savs "The General Assembly of our State, at its late session, adopted certain resolu tiois on the subject of slavery, and gave me instructions to obey them. From this .coUmtand I appeal to the people of Mis 'nuri-the whole body of the people-and if they confirm the instructions, I shall give them an opportunity to find a Sena tor to carry th'eir~ will into effect, as I can not do anything to dissolve this Uniott, or to array one.half uf it againtst the other.

A SINGULAR TRANVACTIoN..-W e finid the following notico of a very sin gularcase in the last number of the In diana State Sentinel: The mirriage of Mr. Henry Apple and Mrs. Sarah Apple was solemnised at the clerk's office in this city, (indi anapolis,) on the 7th inst., by Judge Smith, one of the Associate Judges of this county. Mr. and Mrs. Apple hav ing been living together as a husband and wife some twenty years, and have raised a large family of cliildren. Their re marriage was made necessary by the following mystemious train of chcuin stances, as we learn by a Iriend who was present at the exaninati-,n of the case in the Circuit Court 'now in session in this city. Mr. John Apple, many years ago, left this country as a volunteer to the Black Hawk war. During his ad. sence, a traveller passed through the country, who informed Mrs. A.. that her husband had been kil'ed; that he, the traveller, had -aided in buring him, and had marked with an axe, the tree un~ler which lie was iiterred. Apple did not return, and no doubt was enter tained by his wife or her friends of his decease. Time passed on, and nothing was heard to discredit the traveller's siory, and.Mrs. A., after having con tinued for a proper length of time in a state of supposed widuwhood, was fur merly married to .Mr. Henry Apple, a fartmer of this county. A few pionths since, it was authentically ascettained that John Apple was yetactually living! A divorce was obtained by Mrs. Apple, and she was re-maried, on Monday last as above staled, to -Henry Apple, the man vith whom she has been innocent ly living for many years past, as her supposed husband. We have heard o'f no case assigned for the singular manner in which the first husband acted. RULE Fort WEARING Rinas.-For the benefit of imie "craft,"as the bachelor's say,. we copy the following rule for wearing tint (lrbe especial benefit of g o. , i v ng* "When a lady is not engaged she wears a ring on her first finger; if en gaiged. on her second; if married, on her third; and if she intends to :emain unmar ried, she wears the ring on her fourth finger. This is tie rule laid down in the latest work upon femmale proprieties that we have seen, anl it appears to be generally recognised among the sex as one that should be scripUilously observ ed. There are some young ladies, how ever, who appenr to take dolight in wearing a ring both upon the first and the second linger, thus leaving the ad miring spectator in some perplexity how to classify them. Others wear a ring upon each finger, and, again, three or four little gnlden hoops. sparkling with briliants, may be seen edging cach other on thesecond-enmblematical, probably, of the numbei of engagements or tri umiphs they have achieved during the period oft heir blooming girlhood. Front tc Indiana State Journal. CURE OF CANcER.-Perhaps I can confer a favdr on some of your subsci bers, by giving a very simple, and ef fectual cure for Cancers. The extract of wood sorrel, used as a plaster throughi the day, and slippeiy elm bark at night will cure any4ancer that has ulcerated, or that has not live skin over it ; in that case the skin shnold be broken in some way. To burn a piece of punk on the place, is a good mnethod; then apply the salve, a~s befere directed. The extract is obtained, simply hy pounding the common sorrel in a morter, or other vessel, and pressing out the juice, then put it in a pewter dish or basin, and place it in -the sun, until it dries to thme consistence of tar when it is fit for use. NEWVSPAPER IBoRaoWtNu.-The Al bany Knickerbocker thus pitches intu some ol the genus "Sponge" who *are in the daily' habit of reading papers they] never pay for. It is more legininiate to borrow any thing else than a News paper': "We intend to showv up some of the no-souled fellows who are in the habit of borrowing their neighbor's newspaper. A man who is in the habit of borrowving a paper because he is too pehurious to to subscribe for one which costs a few cents a wveek, we look upon as buL littli better -than a thief, for he takes that which the poor editor spent hoors in cudgelling his braitalto produced, with out leave or licen'se,. defrauding him of his just dues, if this nieets the eye of a borrower, let him reform and send in his bill." "Why, surely George, you are not going back to California ?' Well, .1 ain't agoing to do anything. else." "Just so; carrying out the scriptinral in junction-'Dust thou art, and unto dust thou shalt return.' " ComPORTS OF AN EDITot.-If he does not ill his paper with i n.ws of imI portance, whether tiiere be any or no'" it is condemned for not being wihat it purports to be-a newspaper'. If he does not fill at least one c61umn every week with something laughable, his fulio is pronotinced-sninteresti'ng. 1 If a public.. nisance siould eiisti notice of it would offend; and not notici it would be censured'. If ie does not publish all the Inarrl ages and deatis that occur "in the world for twenty niles droundi" 'hetlie'r i4 hears of them or not, lie is not 'fit foi'a'i editor. If every paper Aoes not contain a goodly number of Sutides, Horriblq Murders, and. Melanclioly accident'i," it is a dull unwelcome sheer. If half the glorious tirinaact ions vhichi occur are recoided, it is spraea as i vehicle of calamities. If his paper contains advertiieniaiits the general reader liiurnlors; i'4 it d not, the man of business will not pitroii ize ir. If lie steers and impartial conu'rse; he is said to be od. the fen'ce :-if hejum'ps off, lie is sure to be besuiiearec. If a dozen friends call 'en him wi'irs he is correcting his proof 'sheet; o'n'si error escape detection, he is the bigge'i blunderhead in the world'. LAMARITIR TO THlE Eeitsrq.-La martine in reply to an address of Ifie' *. lish visi'eri at Paris, cuncliided wit thi following remairks: .
