The large fly wheel, weigh ing may tons, broke in several places, Anew one cannot be purchased just now and if one could it would take quite a long w’hile to make de livery, besides, the mill is busy and work must continue day and night. In the absence of the owner of the mill, Mr. O’Neill got busy over the wires, had the broken parts expressed to Mobile where these were welded under a new process over mgho and expressed back. The rest of the story can be conjectured. T t was no little task, but it was quickly and success fully carried out —the result of re sourceful thought and of a man who is “on the job.” Our good friends at Logtown are preparing for a celebration of the 4th of July on Thursday next that will appeal'to all.
