The P:.vsd. We refer with
special pleai ire t j i!u advertisment of the
Great Piano Manufactory of Messrs. Wit.
Knauk k I o. , of Baltimore.
This factory is 11 w una of the largest in
the world ; it is a magnificent five story
structure, fionting an entire block on Eufaw
st., and covering, together with the Lumber
Y .rds ittaj!i :d, soais tw and one haif acres
of ground. Three hundred and fifty men
are constantly employed turning out over
forty instruments per week.
The Kuabe Plain has by its superiority
n-t on'y well nigh driven thosj of Northern
iiianufacttire from the hotna market, but
also enjoys a large sale in New York, Pht'a
delphia and throughout the entire North
nn 1 West, besides their largely increased
Southern trade.
The most talented mnMciam of the day,
both amateur an 1 profe.innl, testify to
tlii ir siipiiority. and wherever exhibited
they have nver failed to carry olFthe high
est awards over all competition, having
received no less than f.i first premiums.
During the last season they were used simul
t.incou.'ly by the most distinguished artists
at the Optra Houses in Baltimore, Phila
delphia New Yoik, Brooklyn. Chi.igo. See.
There is certainly no instrument made, more
durable than the K.NABE Piano, none but
the best wurkmen beinc employed and only
the very best of materials used.
