Harper are very pious people ; in excellent standing, we do not doubt, in some orthodox religious society and congregation. Indeed, we often hear of one or another of them figuring in religious movements, which may now and then afford them an opportunity to make their godliness profitable, by turning an honest penny in the way of trade. It is not the worst way in the world to help along an extensive business to be widely known to the brethren ; and a few hun dred or thousand dollars in judicious liberality to the church or its institutions, will sometimes after not many days return in the form of a shower of gold to the coffers of the disinterested donor. . With the Messrs. Harper, as men, we have nothing to do. But the Messrs. Harper are extensive publishers of books; and not only of books, but of periodicals of various kinds. Very few men do more to prescribe and determine what shall be read by the masses of tho people of the United States; and, with a very great number, the imprint of the Harper Brothers is taken as conclusive evidence thut the thing to which it is attached is perfectly safe in its doctrines and in its morals. They are, therefore, in some sense, publio characters, and, as such, their doings so far as their tendency is general are subject to examination and animadversion. Not only so, but they arei able to, and do, in their own publication?! speak of themselves, and present their publications as things worthy the support of an enlightened public. The Messrs. Harper are the publishers of a weekly sheet, one of whose titles in "Journal of Civilization." The name is certainly pretentious enough to justify a pretty high performance. A considerable amount is expended upon it weekly in th e purchase of old, or the production of ne'ir pictorial illustrations. It is well printed, upon a handsome sheet, with, in general, clear typography. In one corner of on of the pages, the proprietors venture the statement that tho circulation of the Journal of Civilization exceeds some seventy thousand eo'es it being, therjj fore, a most excellent medium for adver tising, j Probably it is; and it is employed for that purpose, most unscrupulously, fn general, the publio journals of the coum- try are content to put their advertising $n one place and their literature in another; leaving, for the sake of discrimination, some difference in form, between the one and the other. This difference, in the Journal of Civilization, the Messrs. Har pers have, as far as possible, obliterated. Text, pictures and all tales, biographies, poetry and description, are dedicated ' to the most flagrant species of palpably-paid puffery. Do you observe a finely-executed portrait, accompanied by various illustra tions and a couple of pages of biography? Head a few lines, and if you understand the tricks of trade, you will discover that the remarkable individual whose history you are perusing, is some quack doator, who has a. new patent process to humbug the silly among mankind, and that this is his advertisement written by some Grub street author, a ad paid for. Theso pic tures represent tho syringes, scalpelsjand bougies, with which he operates: and al together tho thing is a fuir speoimen ol the literature of the Journal of Civiliza tion. This is not a thing of extraordin ary, but of common occurrence. Venal ity, from beginning to end, is the charac ter of the affair, and for the impudence with which it is obtruded, the New York Herald in its palmiest days was not its superior."'' 1 But this is not the worst The MesHrs. Harper, being very pious people, would not publish a book, nor a paper j-even though it uight be every word true which the slightest doubt was thrown upon the correctness of any article of ro ligious belief, however absurd it should happen to be. That would be infidelity than which nothing could be more abhor rent to their consciences. But the Messrs. Harper, for base lust of gain, do not hesitate to pander to the lowest tastes, to seek out the most prurient details in cases of social crime, and parade them week after week with unmistakable par ticularity, sensationally illustrated, so that it is impossible for them to escapo the attention of nil into whose hands the of fensive publication may fall. We allude especially to the enterprise exhibited in the Sickles case, though there are plonty of others of the samo character. Such a paper, if it were forty Journals of Civili zation, has no business in any body's house. in Having promised to notice, from time to time, the varioui Mercantile and Manufacturing intorests of our city, wa proceed to fulfill that promise, in part, this day, by publishing notes of a Visit to the Cincinnati Agency of Singer & Co.'s Sewing; Machines. On Tuesday a friend called on us and reques ted that we would accompany him to the Agonoy Offioe of the above-named firm, at No. 8 East Focrth street, that we might mutually have the pleasure of witnessing the evidences whioh there exist of the complete suocess of one of the most important of the many inventions which have been given to the world in these latter days. On ascending the stairs leading to the Show room we were met by the enterprising and in telligent Agent, Mr. Jamks Skardox, who, with that frankness and courtesy for which he is noted, explained to us the modus operandi of the machines, and further, gave us a briof and interesting history of their introduction into this oity, by himself, some seven and a half years ago. Sikqeb's Standard Sbcttle Sewing Ma chine, is the term by which those elegant and useful inventions are usually designated. They are the first practical Sewing Machines work ing with a itraight needle that have been intro duced, and they possess this important advantage over every other invention of a similar kind that all sorts of work enn be executed by one and the same machine, whether the work be linen-stitching, boot-siding, or any othor kind of sowing. A good deal has boon written, as we all know, about the various kinds of stitches, such as "lock-stitches," and so forth ; but, we believe, that the truth has, ere this, somowhat more than dawned npon tho publio, that, not withstanding all the stitching treatises of rival manufacturers, Singer's Machines make tho most improved stitch which human inge nuity has ever invontod, and performs the work perfectly, and with more rapidity than any other. The Stitch! Why, Where's the neoessity of explaining that, for there is not a well-dressed gentleman in the eity that has not some of the stitching performed by these machines on Bomo part of his clothing, if not on every portion of it, and probably on his gaiters too. Ladies' gaiters are also pretty generally bound and stitched by those machines. That these statements are not mere assertions, will appear evident from the fact that Singer's Shuttle Machines are used in the work-shops of all those trades with the mechanical opera tion of which sewing is in any extensive measure connected: they are used in the work-shops of hatters, cap-makers, tailors, boot and shoe makers, carriage-trimmers, and others. Let it be noted, too, that the manufacturers of heavy boots and brogans are now included among the many trades whioh derive advantage from Singer A Co.'s Machines, for, by an improvement in the No. 2 Shuttle Machine, the two defects complained of by those manufacturers the stitch not drawing sufficiently tight, and tho incapacity of the needle to carry coarse thread have been triumphantly overcome. The question, therefore, naturally recurs If Sinoer A Co.'s Machines do not make the proper stitch, would they be so extensively used in manufactories and in families as they are? Since the introduction of Singer & Co.'s Sewing Machines into Cincinnati, by Mr. Skardon, the clothing business has advanced more than four-fold. In 1852 the estimated value of the trade was placed at between five and six millions of dollars, while to-day it ranges between fourteen and fifteen millions an advance which tho increase of population could not, by any stretch of fancy, be made to account for. Hence tho importance of these celebrated machines, as tho means of adding materially to the trade, and consequently to the wealth of the Queen City of the West. Among the many m anufocturers who have been benefited largely by the employment of Sinoer k Co.'s Machines, we might mention one whoso place of business is not a hundred miles dis tant from Carlisle Buildings; and at the present time the same enterprising and prosperous cit izen keeps in constant employment eleven of these machines. There is another manufac turer of our city, in another line of business the clothing whose staff of running machines numbers no fewer than s hundred; and when we tell our readers that one of these machines, worked by a properly trained hand, is capable of turning out one hundred and fifty vests week, or binding one hundred and fifty pairs of boots a day, thoy will then bo able, in some degree, to form an estimate of the immense quantity of work one hundred can perform. As to the question of profit to be derived from the employment of Sinoer A Co.'s Ma chines, much might be said, theoretically, pro and eon ; but wo have nothing to do with theories in such a practical matter nothing but facts being admissible. Mr. Skardon mentioned several interesting facts respecting persons who had raised themselves from com parative poverty to a degree of independence they had little dreamed of, when they mado their first sacrifice their first hard pecuniary effort to prooure a machine. He furthor stated and this is a view of tho quostion which philanthropists will hail with dolight thut working-women muke far bolter wagos, and fowcr hours, than by tbo uso of the noedlo and thimble, so that Hood's "Sung of tho Shirt" not applioable to the operators on Sinokb Co.'s Machines. Before the introduction Sincer St Co.'s Machines, sewing-women, by the closest application, for about fifteen or six teen hours a - day, could realize no more than front two to three dollars a week; whereas, r aennired the art of ,0 acquire", me an 01 i, by nine or ton hours operating a machine, can work per day, realize a weekly salary, averaging, acoording to their skill, from four to soven dollars; and instancos are by no means rare of quiok workers earning ton and twolve dol lars a week. But the profits arising from the use of these machines are not oonfined to the workers, for thoso who hire girls to oporato for them realize very handsome incomes. Take, for instance, this fact that many employers have realized, and continue to roalizo, a profit of from fifteen to twenty dollars a week by one machine alono. And whon we Inform our renders that there are over one thousand of Sinokr Jfc Co.'s Ma chines in constsnt "click" in this city, they will not be surprised at the statement given above of the vast increnso in the value of tho clothing trade in Cincinnati Bince the year 1852. These machines are now so thoroughly ap preciated by manufacturers, that the first quos tion put to women who call for employment is, "Can you operate ono of Singer A Co.'s Sewing Machines?" And if they answer that they can not, there is no employment to be offered them. A very important addition has recently been made to the stock of Singer Jt Co.'s Machines by the manufacture of a Family Sewino Ma chine, fully adnptcd for family purposes and light manufacturing business. It works on tbo same principle as tho other famous ma chines of this enterprising firm; and the as sertion, or prediction whichever our readers please to call it is here hazarded, that, before long, these Family Machines of Singer & Co.'s manufacture will become as popular in fam ilies as the larger ones are now, and have long been, in tho work-shops of this country, of England, and of other countries. We were favored with a view of the large work-room overhead, where thousands of pants and othor articles lay in heaps, just turned off the machines by the fifty or sixty young women who aro thore employed by Messrs. Biuber & Brother, the proprietors, but wo have no fur ther space at our disposal to notice it at length. those of them who hav A Reply to the Cabinet Manufacturers. a in is A of "SlBIKE Or THE JOVRNFYMF.N CAIIINET-MAKnBS." I'mlor this heading an article has been published in tho papers, signed by the proprietors of ten furniture factories of Cincinnati, to which the "no culled" "Cabinet-makers' Protective Union" feel bound to reply, inasmuch ns tho position taken by them Is utterly misrepresented therein. We will let tho facts speak for themselves facts that can not bo denied, and which wilt be more than sufticl"nt to si lence all those who choose to pronounce our previous reports as unfounded. It is immaterial whether tho reduction of the wages of the workmen was the eftect of a combination on the part of the employers, since the fact that such reduction Din take place Is but too well established. Tho journeymen are well aware that this reduction took place contrary to the wishes of some well-disposed employers, who really feel for i iieu w oi amen, out v. no were com pencil in com pel lug with the other manufacturers to make common cause with them. We therefore want to havo it un derstood that we are not occupying a hostile position toward tho employers; in fact, harmony between the parties Is indispensable. jmi io attain tins end, it became necessary that we should form an organization, and should act in concert with similar organizations in othur cities. We can not sec how this should aflect the employe-s Injuriously; on the contrary, we are almost persua ded that well-meaning employers would be glad at the prospect of avoiding in futuro the necessity of cuttuig down the wages of their workmen to the lowest jiotch, in order to enable them to compete with others. The assertion that we are being paid hotter wages here than are paid in other parts of the country, we can refute by unquestionable testimony. An regards the Kast, this may; he true, but In the West tho average wages are higher. Although the Impression Is abroad, that tho journeymen cabinet makers, on comparison with the condition of some of the other trades, where tho destitution is also very great, are in n measure well off, such in reality is not the case. The tailors, for instance, can call on their wives and children to aid them in earning a living; W'hile our workmen, who also have to meet tho heavy expenses consequent upon the present high prices of mi me necessaries 01 iuc, nave no sucii uaaitional lleln available. The fact that higher wages were not demanded for nu kiu'Ih oi wrirK, may serve tno public, as an judica tion that tho demand was not an unreasonable one. Whether the wages rose und fell inexact iirottnrtioii to the prices of the niarketahlo articles of trade, we leave to the employers to judge. We would state, in tins connection, However, ftmi certain pieces com mand the same nrice now that thcvnlwuvs did. while at the same time, the wases paid for manufacturing Tliein nine ueciineu. ino question ol obtaining higher wagon is of MiiTicient importance to us, to make us net with due caution, for tho employers probably recollect what happened in 1K13, when our relative positions wore the same as thev aro to-dav and when they acceded to demands made at our meeting. Contlfl ng in their promises, we returned to our work, when several of them went round tho work-shops, talked to the menlndlvidually, aud man aged things so, that only a very small number of the latter realized ou luconsiuorauio advance on the old wuges. JSo well-disposed citizen will blame the workmen when, profiting by past experience, they now strive to provide against tho recurrence of such things. We protest, however, against having our resolutions, or some sections of our constitution, construed in a m:iuner as though we wunted to interfere In the business affairs of our employers. In former yearn there was a Union of Journeymen Cabinet-makers in existence, who entertained such notions, as is evi dent from the tenor of their constitution, which we have now before us. Some of our employers are said to have once belonged to tills Luiou-, and for this reason they seem to be afraid lest wo should now try to do that which Ihey themselves, iu times gone by, thought so excellent. The workmou of to-day, how ever, being uetuated by a due sense of modesty, have no such demands to make. To prevent auy misunderstanding, we now respectfully submit to the publie the sections ("arbitrary and unreasonable") which were ullnded to by the employers. Section I. In every factory or shop a committee to be instituted, whose proviuce it is to regulate the prices, iu connection with the other similar organi sations. Huch committee is to bo acknowledged us the standing committee. Its term of office expires with thut of the other olflcers of the society. If the employers had seen proper to add a lew words comprised in the second resolution, then the real ob ject In providing such committee would huve been ap parent. The duty of tho shop committee was prescribed as follows: 1. To equalize the rrices as faros practicable. The compensation of such of the workmen as are uble j,'et along at the old prices is not to lie raised. 2. All workmen who receive inadequate pay are get higher wagon, so as to enable a hand of average capacity to earn wages commensurate to the existing circumstances. 3. In order to liavethe prices as uniform as possible throughout the city, tho different shop committees consult together and toestabli.h a price list, which they aro to hand to the cmployors to consider on aud to sign the sumo. 1 Ills was done, und an Is known to the public, tho Crice list won signed by several employers who are nown and esteemed an business men. 4. This committco was to be acknowledged as the standing committoe, to interpose between the em ployer and the workmeu whenever a difheutty should arise relating to worK or changes in work done. Soc. 3. Kuch cabinet-maker working in Cincinnati, without releronce to the language lie speaks, muy join the l uiou, on his acknowledging the constitution anil a-ssuuring the duty to promote tho interests of the Union. Here wo have to remark, thut the English rend! tit. n of the above section was indefinite, and it was therefore resolved, ut tho liuit general meeting, conform tho Kuxlisli translation as near us possible to the (roriiutn original. Heside', the first part of the section, us published by the employers, conflicts with mo second imi-i inereoi. Met. 9. W believer the owners or managers of work shops refuse to comply with t lie just demands of workmen, the standing committee is to be apprised thereof without delay. It Is the duty of sMi-n com mittee, in such case, at once to issue a call for general meeting, and, u necessary, to muke arrange merits for a strike. These "just demands" aro of a different nature altogether than the emnlovers seem to think: but since they do not seein to be aware of this, or rather since Ihey seem to be unw illing to know this, we will not now ston to exnlaln the matter iniiiutiilv. These "just demands" nre, iu short, comprised in the prico lists signed by the emeloers, and any enerouel. nient on them would ha met by the committee, as wouiu oe in ouiy utiiinu. (See. in.

Hole wo have to stuto lhat, agreeably to a resolu tion passed ut a meeting of the I iiion, the latter sentence was stricken out. Wu appeal, however, every reusonahlc man, whether such an individual, who proves to be unmindful of his own interests, Well an of those of many of his fellow-luell, is not de void of the least particle of honorable sentiments. We even put it to the cmployors whether they hold a man in any esteem w ho thus proves himself liin worst enemy, Wccten believe that Ihey can but despise the few iuilividnals wtio have returned their work, notwithstanding their help may prove very acceptable to them at this particular moment.

Ily Hiiiiprosatug the latter part of the section, the authors of that eei--to-hc-remembered article, published on the ;,tli of April, probably meant to say: We utily publish such passa ges as will redound In our luviir.

Thus reads our constitution, which In entirely dif ferent from what the authors of a certain nrtlele are rileased to call - but which never was and never will e our constitution. Kvery Intelligent man knows that n people Is governed bv certain chief or funda mental laws, as w ell as by-lnws of minor Importance, or more resolutions, which are requisite lu order to carry out the former, to protect Individuals by com bining tho strength of all, and thus to enable them Bureesfiilly to resist all unjust demands. The people of these United Htateswould certainly never think of rewarding a meritorious foreign potentate by elect ing him President, and thus put him In possession of the country. An we understand the law, native-born citizens only aro eligible to this poeltlon while, at the same timo, certain laws, relating to particular furls of the country, may be revised and altered from hue to time. . This rule Is a plain one. If there are still persons who do not or will not understand tho same, or who persist in their efforts to turn and twist It, why, then we can not go on to explain it, as a teacher would to his pnpiln of infant age, for tho ainiplo reason that we are restricted to a moderate space in our publica tion. Now let lis see what our authors mean in saying, "Wo hold that journeymen cabinet -makers have, in common with nil others, the right to form themselves Into societies, adopt constitutions, and make laws to regulate their own conduct, etc., but to muke laws for men not member, of the association, and, by threats and conspiration, coercing them Into sub. mission," etc. Here we would beg the ten employers to rememlier tho timo when, some twenty years ago, here In Cln i iniiati, thev, or their foremen, submitted to a con stitution which, ii comparison to tho ono now in question, may bo likened to a hot-tempered father, who, in correcting an undutilul child, nearly flogs it to death, whuV, on the other hand, we see a kind parent, w ho punishes his wicked child by looking at Our constitution extendi an Invitation to all jour neymen cabinet-makers to associate with their fel lows, who rally under a flag whereon are inscribed sentiments as contained in section one of the funda mental laws promulgated by our true and unadul terated constitution, anil which therein are desig nated as being "irrevocable." The course of action determined on by the said em ployers is distinctly set forth in this publication. They state that thev will not give employment to any workman acknowledging; the said constitution, and that they will resist, by all lawful means, all attempts, etc. , We are well aware that associations as defined ty section I of our constitution, at all times and among ad nations, have excited the ire of tyrannical pre tenders; and we, therefore, can appreciate tho evident determination on part of tho gentlemen employers not to give us work, unless we solemnly renounce the present organization, which would give them the ivM.. allaru-ai .l slncrln Out und "Ullisll" the mem bers ono by one. We but too well remember the practices resorted to at a certain factory, about a year ago, where two or three men were kept in reserve in every storv of the pHiiihliHh.iient. and every thing no arranged that the workmen were compelled either to submit to having their wages reduced one-third part. or more, or else is? turneo on. ... In answer to the foregoing it may be claimed that at that time the wages paid were too high by one third inasmuch as the author of the aforesaid pub lication tried to make the public believe that the Cin cinnati manufacturers ore now paying tho highest wages In the country. Let us soe what tho foreman of one of tho factories, who is dependent entirely on the proprietor, lias to soy in regard to this matter. He remarked Inst Week: "I know that thin piece of work is one of the least remunerative In the factory; tho former workman (olio of thoso who wan driven off by one of the reserve men above alluded to, who worked for two-thirds the usual wages.) mode poor w ages, but his successor, w ho works well ami indus triously, makes very good wages." The said work man being questioned in regard to this matter on the samo day, admitted that, by a close application and under favorable circumstances, ho could earn from Jiitojfi .'ivperwoek. This much about the highly ex tolled ample wages, averaging JHiper week. Perhaps they had reference to a cose whero for a week's work of extra flue custom-work the sum of (j, or62.' cents per day, was paid. We appeal to our fell )w-citizens, and nek thcra whether, in such cases, nta moment's notice, it is at nil possible for h man to quit his occupation and to engage in some other business, and w hether or not petty thefts, street-begging of children, followed up by other and more serious crimes, are encouraged or to be considered tho natural consequences ot such a stnte of affairs whether or not poor-houses and pen itentiaries aro likely to be peopled thereby. Those citizens who now frown on our undertaking, will eventually bo burdened by additional taxes, while, aside from mis, me woramen win oc iiuuoiu iu puj them their rents. Who will be the losers? Wo relate the following additional incidents! Two workmen were engaged on the saino kind of work in the same factory, lino of them lost hisoc. count-book, which accidentally was picked up by the other, who, on examining it, was surprised to seothat thentlier Workman received tl less thon he received lorthe same kind of work. Such practices conflict with See. 1 of our constitution, It being one of the ob jects of the Union to prevent "greenhorns" from being imposed upon, as well as to oppose a rednctlou of wages, carried into effect in the following shame less manner, viz: arbitrarily reducing long-established prices one-fourth port, and making the re spective entry in the account-bonk of the workman ltl,.,iil nt-nn Inffieinlnir V, 1 1,1 of II The Volksblntt, Daily Press and Commercial, of the 5th inst., publish a statement made by one em ployer, F. ll. Hruiiswlck 4 Bro., to theeffoct that his workmen, working less than ten hours a day, not withstanding this, earn ten dollars per week, on an average This can not possibly bo true, inasmuch an the wages paid by them rango from five to ten dollars per week, giving an nverago of only seven or eight dollars at leost such is the calculation of tho work men. Thev would be glad to bo instructed in any new rule of arithmetic whereby a diflereiit result would be obtained. We might cite hundreds of instances where advant age was taken of the lack of experience of the work men, and where impositions were practiced as above related, and it Is, therefore, impossible for us to get along without presenting uu unbroken trout to such tyranny. As regards our organization, we have to Bay, ond we do so lreely and openly, at tne same lime reierrini In tho minutes of nroceediugs of the meeting hob on the 5th of April, that no man was ever Induced to join the Union against his will or inclination; and that no obstacles whatever are presented tosuehos are disposed to return to their work, and whoure t.ilHoi to Htierince nil seciirltv for the tlltlire. for the sake of providing forto-morrow, aud w ho are willing o incur tile risK, in 11 snort time peruaps, iu ue com ..-11. .1 .......... i i.iu f..n, ...........

Ilia testi mony should have great weight: CINCINNATI, April 7, 1859. I have been under treatment of J. Winslow Ayer, 30 West Fourth street, for littlo more than one month, and am most happy to say that I hare in this short period experienced more benefit from Medicated Inhalation than by any and all mcdes of treatment I have ever tried. I most cordially recommend to my friends, and all others suffering from Lung and Throat diseases, to make a thorough trial of this great and new remedy. I felt that I was in consumption : yet such has been the nstonishing improvement I have made 'undor this new practice, that I desire that others similarly afflicted should have the same benefit I have received. I am fully satisfied that Dr. Ayer thoroughly understands ii and is worthy of all confidence. A. R.

About a month ago I called at Dr. Ayor's "Throat and liiiuglnsillut," 3(1 West Fourthstreet.fortreat- nieut lor i onsiuiis ana Liironic inuuuiniarion oi tue Throat. The tonsils aim nvuia (or palate! wero so much enlarged that there seemed to bo but one course to pursue, and that wits to cut tliein olf: this I had lieen told by other physicians, who hud ulso candidly told mo they could not curu mo. Dr. Ayer mado a careful examination and pronounced excision unnec essary, and prescribed Medicuted Inhalation and top ical applications, with general treatment, and the re sult is a PKRrKcT triumph ! Thn Inflammation has heen allayed, and the tonsils and palate reduced (o their natural aire and position. I now have no sore ness or dlllirulty whatever of the throat, aud tr.lL THAT I AM NOW rKllftl Tl.V WSI.L. I cordially commend Dr. Ayer as a skillful and com petent physician In his speciality, and worthy of all confidence. His mode of treatment is rational, pleas ant, and certainly In my case successful, and I have every reason to believe the Doctor is equally success ful la all other caes while I have been under treat ment at the Institute. .
