nd thinl Section of the Exhibition is introduced by this Claea, which indudes the Manufacture of 
his Section contemplates those results of human indiutry which naturally Bucceed to the Sections of 
ials and Machinery. I'he suUtaiice to be operated upon baving been considered, together with the 
assialance necessary to carry forward the processea through which it has to paw in ita progresa 
w material to the manufactured article, it now becomes an interesting study to turn attention to 
of the industry occupied in the preceding departments. While objects in the first Section may be 
in a passive or pre|jaratory state, objects in the second must be considered in an active, and in the 
omplete condition, awaiting only their application to the purposes of life. This condition generally 
articles contained within this Section less attractive than in the preceding and succeeding Sections. 
wed, however, objects in this Section must receive a degree of attentive consideration not inferior to 
ed 0:1 the former. The manufactured article may and should be regarded as tlje test of the per- 
il of the raw material constitulint; its foundation, and, secondly, of the mechanical arrangements 
! in its production. If the raw material has been wanting in any of the pri^rties for which it is 
1 the preparation, or if the manufacturing machinery has been defective in operation, the manu- 
icle offers, in many cases, certain evidence of tliese facts. And, converselv, the purity and perfect 
e material, with a slate of efficiency in tho manufacturing machinery, combine to produce a certain 
in the inannfacluro which may be generally ascertained upon its careful oiamination. 
■et of the Class more immediately under notice, the Cotton Manufacture, receives, from its vast im- 
firsl jKjsition among mnnufBcturc<l articles. It comprises — A. Cotton, Yam, and Thread; 1(. Calicoes,

from 1 to H, at the North-western end of the Building, on the Groimd V\ot>r, ni-nr the Nave. 
ni''thi»ls of manufaclurc are illiistratcd which must receive the notice of those concerned in this 
Ifjiartmcnt of commercial activity. The fitness of some articles, also, for the peculiar markets for

ini&cbfnerj, &c., for the manufacture of this material, and about the same amount in wages to the ])er8on8 
directly employed in the factories, of whom the total number is taken at upwards of half a million, exclusive 
of 80,000 or 90,000 engineers and machinists immediately connected with the manufactiu*e. The total annual 
value of the manufactured material has been approximatively represented at about thirty-six millions sterling. 
The effect on the population of the manufacturing districts has not been less suq>rising. 

Although, therefore, little of external interest appears to belong to a bundle of cotton-yam or a piece of 
calico, the study of its manufacture, exclusive of the exquisite mechanism by which it is operated upon, and 
the statistical facts which link themselves with its history, can never be unprofitable, llie moral considerations 
connected with cotton factories form a subject of even higher interest and imjwrtance. — R. E.

surface, having a plush or looped surface on both sides, 
and in the patent mode by which this is accomplished on 
one or both sides. The great softness of tlie cotton 
surface adapts it peculiarly for young children. The 
advantages of cotton towelling have been long appre- 
ciated in the Eastern baths. The linen nap or plush 
affords equal absorbency, and produces a sharper feeling 
to the skin, whilst the retaining of the cotton ground 
gives a pliancy of material which has long been a deside- 
ratum in towelling with a sharp rough surflu». Produced

[Thte cotton manufacture forming an important feature 
1 the commercial activity of this country, it may not be 
■int e r eati i^g to take a rapid glance at its history and 
teducts. It is worthy of remark, that the name '' Cot- 
oo," k almost the same as " Cotnot," that which is given 
ft Hebrew to the first clothing which was put upon man ; 
nd there is reason to believe, that this fabric was em- 
pkyed for that purpose in the East, at a very remote 
p«iod. The " fine linen" of Egypt is extremely ancient; 
Ui the " fine cotton'' of India rivals it in antiquity, 
bwoty, and utility. The microscopic examination of the 
iteucturea of these fabrics, recently made in order to de- 
termine the nature of mummy -cloth (which is unques- 
tnnably linen), has proved that they are essentially 
difierent in form; the fibres of linen being cylindrical 
■ad tapering at each end, and the fibres of cotton being 
lat and ribbon-Ilke. 

Tbe Hindoos, from whom we derive the knowledge of 
iti muofEMsture, have not only made cotton cloth from 
tune immemorial, but have excelled all other nations even 
lo thif day, in the delicacy of their fabrics. Herodotus 
mentions it as the common clothing in India; and it is 
ipoken of by Arrian and Strabo as well known. Cottons 
»ere articlee of trade and of dress in Russia in 1252; and 
»ere generally used by the Chinese in l;316. Cotton 
cloth was brought to London in 1590, from B«iin; and 
It w« ascertained about a century previous, to have been 
the chief article of dress among the Mexicans. Its manu- 
&cture was originally brought to Europe by the Moors of 
Spain; but it was not till after the establishment of their 
commerce with India, that the Dutch began to fabricate 
cotton cloths at home. The Protestants, driven by perse- 
cution from the Netherlands, brought this manufacture 
to England in the reign of Queen Elizabeth. 

Our ordinary cotton fabrics have their counterpart in 
tlw original manufactures of India ; and the native mus- 
lins of Dacca in Bengal still rival the productions of the 
exquisite machinery of England. The former have ob- 
tained their superiority from the skill acquired by manual 
d«iterity transmitted through a long lapse of ages; the 
letter, from that of little more than half a century of well - 
^xerciised mechanical ingenuity. The various kinds of 
cotton fabrics brought from India, were originally distin- 
P^^ed by the names of the places where they were mjvde ; 
■*• jaconets, muUmuls, betelles, tarlatans, tanjeebs, 
^^, terridams, doreas, &c. Imitations of these by 
^yr manufacturers retain their names ; and additions 
and cbanges are made according to the improvements in- 

^ two great emporiums of the cotton manufacture 
•'^lUochester and Glasgow; the former having Bolton 
for it* aasistant, in the production of muslins and the 
&»r »ort of goods; and the latter. Paisley. Both these 
«ti«« have risen, in consequence of the wealth produced 
»J their manufactures, from the position of third -mte 
to»iB, and known only by historical associations, to the 

rank of being second in the kingdom, and honourable 
rivals in magnitude and importance. The pattern-cards 
of Manchester goods which have been sent over to the 
Continent by some eminent manufacturers, have at times 
exhibited specimens of 1,500 different kinds of cotton 
manufacture, varying in fobric and design, from the 
coarsest cloth to the finest muslins ; and in colours, from 
the richest chintz to the plainest goods. The term ''Man- 
Chester and Glasgow Warehouse," exhibited on a sign- 
board in London and other towns in this country, indi- 
cates that all kinds of cotton goods are to be obtained of 
the exhibitors. 

The general name of calico has been applied to the 
plain white cloth manufactured from cotton, from the 
circumstance of this article having been first imported 
from Calicut, in 1631, the place of its original and princi- 
pal manufacture. As calico increases in its quality and 
strength, it is called long-cloth, duck, and double warp. 
Calico-shirting or twine-cloth is made to imitate and 
supersede linen; and in patent-twist, the yam is more 
closely entwined than in common calico. Sheeting-calico, 
as its name implies, is a substitute for linon-sheeting, and 
is preferable on account of its cheapness and warmth. 
Printed calicoes, or prints, at first the imitations of those 
of India, are now produced in patterns of an indefinite 
variety every year. Calicoes are frequently impregnated 
with a made paste of spoiled flour called " the di*e88ing," 
which renders it diflBcult to ascertain their quality. This 
dressing is given merely to improve their appeai-ance. 

The peculiar style of printed calico, called chintz, ori- 
ginally from India, and in which the figures are at least 
of five different colours, impressed upon a white or 
coloured groimd, are now made by our own manufac- 
turers \vith great success, as to beauty of design and 
richness of colour. The invention and the drawing ot 
patterns for printing alone gives employment to artists 
of a peculiar class; and the variety produced is immense, 
in order to satisfy the perpetual demand for change pro- 
duced by fa.shion. 

It is to the production of fine muslins, that tho chief 
efforts of our cotton manufacturera have been directed, 
with a view to excel the wonderfully delicate and light 
fi\brics of India. It is stated that the turbans of some 
of the rich Mohammedarus at Delhi wei-e made of muslin 
so fine that thirty ells did not weigh foiu* ounces; and 
that some of their broad webs might be drawn through a 
ring of moderate size, the tissue being so exquisite that 
it seemed more like the work of insects than of men, i^e- 
sembling in the langujige of Eastern hypcrV)ole, '* the 
woven ^^'ind." The thi-eads of a specimen of this nismu- 
facture in the Museum of the Ejist India Company, when 
examined with the microscoj)©, were found though spun 
only by the distaff and si^intlle, to suiT^ass our machine- 
made muslin in fineness, but to bo inferior in regularity. 
Twenty yards of the yai-u of which this muslin w;ls made 
weighed only a grain; and a pound of it woulil h<ive

reached the length of 115 milee. In England yam has 
been spun so fine, that a pound would extend to 167 
miles in length; but this coidd not be woven by our 
machinery. The price of the Dacca muslin has been, when 
brought to this country, from 10 to 12 guineas per yard. 
By the employment of machinery, and the division of 
labour, we are enabled to produce muslin much cheaper 
than the Hindoos, and even of finer texture; but their 
muslin is richer, softer, and more durable, and still 
maintains its reputation. The same may be said of their 
calicoes, ginghams, and chintzes, which form the staple 
commodity of the Circars. Though nearly driven out of 
the European markets by cheap and successful imitations, 
they are still preferred in the East, where the merchants 
consider that they are able to distinguish by the touch, 
and even by the smell, the genuine productions of the 
Indian loom. 

Varieties of muslin are jaconet, a light kind of muslin, 
open and soft, but stouter than the mull : the name is 
supposed to be a corruption of Jaghemout, the place 
where they were made; it is used for dresses, neckcloths, 
&c. Nainsook is a thicker sort of jaconet, plain and 
striped. Mull muslin is a v^y thin and soft kind, used 
for drosses, trimmings, &c. Seerhand is between nain- 
sook and mull, and particularly adapted for dresses, 
retaining its clearness after waiting. Buke muslin is a 
plain clear kind, woven for working in the tambour. 
Foundation muslin is open-worked, used for stiflfening 
dresses and bonnets. Leno is thinner and clearer than 
buke muslin ; a sort of cotton gauze, used for window 
blinds. Cambric muslin is an imitation of cambric, a 
linen fabric; it is sometimes glazed, white and coloured 
for linings, and twilled, figured, striped, or corded. Cord 
and fancy checks, are cambric muslins with stripes and 
cords placed chequer-wise, by thick threads being intro- 
duced into the warp or weft. Figured muslins are 
wrought in the loom to imitate the tamboured muslins, 
which are embroidered by hand on the tambour. Qlasgow 
is the chief seat of the tamboured muslins. Of cotton 
cambric there are two kinds; that used for dresses, white 
or printed, made chiefly in Lancashire; and that used for 
the same purposes as French cambric, made chiefly in 

Cotton damasks, huckabacks, and diapers, are made in 
imitation of articles of the same name in linen; they are 
cheaper, but less durable in fi&bric and in whiteness. 
Cotton ticks are plain and twilled, in imitation of linen 
ticks; and there is a kind called imion tick, composed of 
linen and cotton. Qingham is a thin chequered cotton. 
Counteipanes, a oomiption of counterpoint, have small 

protuberances arranged according to various patterns. 
Marseilles quilts are more elegant than the former; it is 
a double cloth, with a third of softer material between, 
kept in its place by the quilting done in the loom. Cotton 
quilting is made for waistcoat-pieces, resembling diaper. 
Jean is a twilled cotton, both striped and white. Satin 
jeans are woven like satin, with a smooth glossy surface, 
and are used for stays, shoes, &c. Dimity, an article well 
known, is made striped or plain; now much used for 
curtains. Fustian is a coarse twilled cotton, compre- 
hending several varieties, as corduroy, jean, velveret, 
velveteen, thickset, thickset cord, and other stout cloths 
for men's wearing apparel. Common plain fustian is 
called pillow; when of a strong twilled texture, and 
cropped before dyeing, it is called moleskin; and when 
shorn after dyeing, it is called beaverteen. 

Cotton goods, particularly the finer fabrics, as muslins 
and bobbin-net lace, are subjected to a process by whi(^ 
the downy fibres of the web as it comes from the loom 
are removed, and the fabric is presented in a more 
finished state of manufiicture. This process formerly 
consisted in passing the web in its whole width rapidly 
over and near to the upper sm*face of a semi-cylindrical 
piece of red-hot iron placed horizontally, by which the 
fibres projecting from the surface were consumed in a 
moment, while the fabric itself passed imhurt over the 
burning mass. Had the machinery by which this was 
efifected been suddenly stopped before ihe web was raised 
from its perilous position, the whole would have been 
enveloped in flames. 

This method of singeing muslin, which was practised 
at Qlasgow and in Lancashire, has been in some factories 
superseded by Hall's patent process, which consists in 
the application of gas to effect the same purpose as the 
red-hot iron. The latter is replaced by a tube similarly 
placed, and perforated in its upper side with numerouB 
small holes as jets through which the gas passes. When 
the gas is ignited, the muslin is passed rapidly over the 
flame in a manner similar to that already mentioned. 
Improvements were introduced into this process by the 
patentee, by which a draught of air is created over the 
series of jets when acting as burners; and the web being 
Uien rapidly passed over these burners, the air forces 
the flame of the gas through the interstices of the fabric, 
and all the loose and projecting fibres of the tliread com- 
posing the web are instantaneously consumed as before, 
without in the least injuring its substance or texture. 
The application of this process creates the distinction 
between gassed aad ungassed goods. — R. W.]

[The alpaca is an animal of the Llama tribe, inhabit- 
ing the mountain -region of Peru. The wool or lioir is of 
various shades of black, white, grey, brown, &c., and in 
remarkable for brightness and lustre, great length of 
staple, and extreme softness. This wool was brought 
into general use in this country about 16 years ago by 
the present exhibitor. Since that time the various ob- 
stacles in the way of its successful working have been 
quite overcome, and the alpaca manufacture now ranks 
as one of the most important branches of the Bradford 
worsted stuff trade. The articles produced from alpaca 
in combination with silk are especially noticeable for their 
softness and brilliancy. The bulk of the goods, however, 
are made with cotton warp, and when dyed and finished 
approach in lustre very nearly to silk. The following is 
the average yearly importation of alpaca wool into England 
since its first introduction, viz.: from 1836 to 1840, 7,000 
bales per annum; from 1841 to 1845, 13,000 bales per 
annum; from 1846 to 1850, 20,000 bales per annum. It 
is generally believed that this last amount is the utmost 
extent of production in Peru. 

The animal has not hitherto been very extensively 
cultivated in this country. H. R. H. Prince Albert has 
a small quantity at Windsor Park, and the Earl of Derby 
has a flock of about 60 at Knowsley. A specimen of Lord 
Derby's growth is now exhibited by Mr. Salt. Comiider- 
able difficulties have arisen in the rearing of these animals 
in England; but when more correct information is obtained 
as to their habits in their native district, these will most 
probably be overcome. Attempts are just now being 
made to introduce the alpaca into our Australian colonies, 
where the climate, from its great dryness, is believed to 
be congenial for its successful naturalization. 

Mohair or goat's wool is produced exclusively in Asia 
Minor. In its raw state it is superior in lustre to alpaca, 
and is wrought into many beautiful fabrics. The importa- 
tion of this article has increased from 5,621 bales in 
1841, to 12,884 bales in 1850. Mohair yam is largely 
exported to the Continent, where it has superseded the 
yam formerly spun in Turkey, and is there manufactured 
into Utrecht velvet for hangings, furniture, lining of 
carriages, &c., a branch of trade which is now gaining 
ground extensively in this country. 

Russian Donsky fleece wool is of a very coarse descrip- 
tion, and was first combed and brought into use in the 
worsted trade about 20 years ago by the present exhibitor.

298 Stewart, Robert, Pawfcy — Proprietor k Pirodiioer. 
Hutchison, Thomas, PaM^tfj^Inventorand Patentee. 

Machine for inventing and displaying patterns in stripes, 
cheques, and tartans, by means of ^ding miirorB and 
coloured glass, suitable for manufacturers of textile 
fabrics, whether in cotton, woollen, silk, or linen, or a 
combination of two or more of these matcnrials. 

The advantages of this machine are — the &cility with 
which any pattern, or idea of a pattern, may be set up 
and displayed — the variety of designs it can produce 
and the ease and simplicity of accomplishing them. It ii 
not at all necessary to paint the pattern on paper, after 
viewing it through the mirrors, as the scales attached 
show at once the required nimiber of threads of each 
colour, and how many repeats are neceasazy for the 
breadth of the web, and it msplays at o&ce, not only the 
repeat, but the whole breadth, and a considerable portion 
of the length of the cloth at one view. 

By this invention, the precise effect of a pattern may he 
produced, in the course of a few minutes, without any 
expense, multiplied to any extent, and it may be enlarged 
or diminished at pleasure. The chief novelty, however, 
of this machine, which is exhibited for its simplicity and 
the ease of its adaptation, ia, that the precise effect of Hm 
cloth in a finished state is accurately represented, the 
crisp transparent effect of a silk fiEkbric being truly given, 
as well as the soft and more opaque effect of a woollen 

This invention is new in principle, being a novel appli* 
cation of coloured glass to useful and essentially practical

Two shawls and a specimen of coarse cloth manufie- 
tured by J. Haley and Son, Bramlev, near Leeds. The 
whole of the material is of the Cashmere wool as above 

The Cashmere goat's wool, of which these article are 
manufactiu^, consists of two distinct materials called 
wool and kemp. The wool is beautifully rich and soft tc 
the touch, and is probably superior in this respect to the 
finest continental lamb's wool, and equal to the riclmese 
of the Thibet wool. It is also divisible into qualities 
The kemp presents the appearance of a course rough hair, 
such as is avoided by the manufacturer in all purchaaa 
of wools, deteriorating as it does the i4)pearance of eva 
common fabrics by its inferiority and harshness. 

The two wools, as shorn from the goat, are closely in 
termingled, and present the appearance of coarse hair 
wool of a very low character ; but a minute inspectioi 
shows that part of it is of a very fine quality. In orde 
to separate this fine quality from the coarse, it is m 
cossary to do so fibre by fibre; and this has to be effecte 
entirely by hand, no machinery having as yet been applie 
to this purpose. The process is both difficult and tediou 
one person not being able to separate more than half { 
ounce in twelve hours. 

After the separation of the qualities, it is desirab 
further to diride it, in order to make a warp yam f 
fabrics like the shawls; but this was impossible in tl 
present instance, owing to the small quantity produce 
otherwise the fabric would have been much finer. In t 
dresses this result has been acliieved, because the warp 
of silk, and the qimntity required for the weft was thei 
fore not so great in proportion. 

The specimen of coarse cloth is manufactured entire 
of the coarse hairs or kemp after it is assorted from t 
finer material of the wool. In a general way this is co 
sidered worthless.

its manufacture requires the use of neariy 30,000 cards

in which a brocade. Introducing so large a number of co-

took the lead id ita Kuroi>e3n mauuracturo ; and the re- 
vocation of the edict of Nantes brought the first silk 
WBaTBT* to Spilolfielda in 1«SJ. 

Silk is atill iniport«il from China, and it excels that of 
every other country, in brilliancy and colour. Consider- 
able quantities are aUo imported from France and It«lj ; 
the sitk of the latter country being esteemed tlie superior. 
The silk manufacturers of Knglond have succeiiafully 
Striven under many disadvantages (one oF which has been 
the difficulty of raising the raw material at home), to 
cope with the continental manufacturers in the produc- 
tion of elegant fabrics, and they now produce some 
which rival, if they do not surpass, those of foreigners. 
Mancheater, as an eiample, eihiUta " gros de Naples" 
aa good and as cheap as that of Lyons ; and the establish - 
mont of our Schools of Design Lids fair to secure our 
superiority in the taste and beauty of our patterns. 

Of the various kinds of silk fabrics presented to our 
notice, we can only deBcribe a few. Damask, which was 
fonnorly used for dresses, is now chiefly employed in 
furniture; it is a twilled fabric mode in the same manner 
as linen damask, mth flowen, birds, and other orna- 
ments worked into its texture. Brocade is a fabric into 
which, originally, threads of gold and silver or a mixture 
of these were introduced to increase the richness and 
aplendour of its appearance. This name, however, is 
applied to rich ailk etufis, aa satins, taffetas, lutoetrings, 
&c., adonied with floweia and figures. Satin is a glossy 
silk twill to which the soft and glistering appearance is 
given by rendering a great number of the threiuls of the 
warp visible in the process of weaving : instead of raising 

each half of the warp aJtematsIy, only a fifth or u 
eighth part is raised, so that the face which is thus wova 
downwards, presents an even, close, and smooth tnrbet. 
To improve its apjiearance, when taken out of the loom, 
it is rolled on heated cylinders which renden the tta 
still more emixith, and imjiarts to it a more brillkit 
lustro. The amooth and plain Fabrics, as lutestring, gra 
de Nagiles, Persian, ducape, levantiue. sarsenet, b., 
differ from each other chiefly in their tfaicfcoess ani ' 
quality. Some of these, however, ore figured. TaSetj 
ia a fabric of a wavy lustre imparted by praraure ltd 
beat, with the application of an acidulous liquor which 
produces the effect called watering. Tabby and tabbineti 
are varieties of the latter. Armoieen is a thick pltun silk, 
generally black; used for clerical and funeral purposes. 

Velvet is ilistingiushed by the soft pile on its surface, 
which is produced by the insertion of short piecrt 
of silk thread doubled under the weft, and so crowded 
together as entirely to conceal the interlacings of tht 
warp and weft. The loops of the thread are after 
cords cut, and then they exhibit the appearance of i 
brush; the pile is produced by the separation of Uu 
threads, aud the applicaUon of machinwy to cut then 
smooth and even. The warp and pile of good velvet an 
both composed of organzine ailk, which ia oompoMd of 
several threads of raw silk twisted or f Armca together id 
the form of a rope; and its richneei depends upon Ike 
relative numbera of its pile threads. Velveta are nid to 
be of different degrees of richness, vii., of two, fbnr, or 
six threads, according to the number of pile tluesiti 
inserted between each of the dents of the reed, nt 
velvets of Spitalfields may be safely oomptred wilk 
foreign velvets in fineness and strength, aa well as in 
genera] appearance. 

llibbons, or, mora properly, ribands, are chiefly oudt 
at Coventry, and have of late so much improved id 
manufacture, that our home producers can now vie niA 
the foreign. They partake of the same varietin a 
general, as the larger ailk fabrics; they are freqoentlj 
ornamented vrith s pearl edge, wMch is formed ij 
makiog some of the threads of the waft prqjeot b^oad 
the rest. Clouding is an appeatMioe given to rihbain 'm 
the dyeing.— R. W.]

tiriona manufactures belonging to tbe present Class. 

A D'CMt variety of damasks of difTerent kinds are exhibited. Tbc design of several of theae repreai its in a 
Ibrcible manner the sncecss with which the Jacquard principle is applied to the ornamentation of raiirics for 
ccdinary use. The localities supplying these and siniilsr articles are chiefly Itelfast, Dunfermline, Ilamsley, 
and Hancheater. Some interesting collections of the niateriaU used, and of its first stages of prepamtion for 
mano&cture, are likewise shown. The most orrlinsry articles such as sacks, threads, flshing-ncta, ropes, and 
twine, have all a place of interest and importance In this Clasa. The heavier deacriptionB of flax manufactures 
tit supplied chiefly from Dundee, Hull, Greenock, and Arhroath. I'he machinery necessary to weave some of 
these productions, such as aail-canvaa, sacking, &c., presents a forcible contrast by the size and power of iU 
nuis to the lighter and more el^^t machines employed for weaving the fine cambrics used for pockct-hand- 

Specimens of articles manufactured from diflerent kinds of flax and hemp will also attract notice, and illns- 
tiate the peculiar applicability of these sorts for difTerent fahrica. Jule, a fibrous material of recent introduc- 
tion from the E^st Indies, is becoming extensively employed, particularly for cartxitiuge, sacking, bags, &c., in 
which a fine malerial ia not necessary. Tbe beautiful fiax prepared at Courtrai, and adapted exclusively for 
the most delicate fabrits, is employed in the manufacture of many of the articles exhibited. Uritish, Itussian, 
China, and Manilla hemp, enter into tbe comjioaition of others. 

In IH41, upwards of one million and a quarter cwts. of flax and tow were imported into England at a duty 
OOP ptTiny a cnt.j yielding consequently about H.HOOl. to the revenue. Tbe flax factories in the United 
Kinsilom are of great size and im]x>rtance, and employ a large number of oj^cratiiee in immediate or indirect con- 
nexion with them. If it should become (lossiblc to obtain cheaply an adequate sujiply of flax of home (iroduc- 
lico, and of the fit quality for tbc purj'osea of the spinner, tlie de|>cndeiicy of this country upon tbe £ast and 
.America for cotton as a textile material would lie greatly leRKCned, and an imjiorlant field of commercial activity 
would be laid open at ourowndoois. But the properties of fiax, and the tedious processes necessary forils prepa- 
ration, have hitherto proved an obstacle to its more extensive cmiilo^TUcnt. A variety of cx]icrinieiits on this 
anbj<-ct are however in progress, the ultimate result of which can senrcely bo foreseen; and it appears already to 
have been proved by actual trial that this fibre can, after preparation, be agijilied to the ordinary machineiy of 
the cotton-mill, yam having been spun up lo modeiale numbers from flax tlius prepared. Until recently flax 
cuttivstion has scarcely been fairly attempted ; but it seems prol>ablc that in a short lime extensive, and it 
may le hoped Bucr«wiful, trials will be made to supply this country with o manufacturing material so intrinsi- 
cally valuable.— H. E.

[These articles though little interesting in themselves, 
are yet important in a social point of view, and represent 
in some degree the interests of our coimtry, as a maritime 
nation, which are connected with this manufacture* 

Bridport may be considered the especial seat of the 
hemp and flax manufeM^ture, a branch of industry which 
baa flourished there for centuries; in fact, so early was 
Uiat ancient borough celebrated for it, that in an Act of 
Parliament, 21 Hen. YIIL, it was set forth, that the 
inhabitants " had, time out of mind, used to make within 
the town for the most part all the great cables, ropes, 
ind other tackling for the Royal Navy, and the most part 
of other ships within this realm." 

It is difficult to estimate the number of hands employed 
in the staple manufacture in the town and the surround- 
ing district, the majority of the population being engaged 
in one or other of its branches ; the number may be 
roughly estimated at from 7000 to 8000.]

Thi preaent Claaa includes a varioty of manufacturing processes relating to the commercial preparation of 
uimal mbatanoa in the form of leather, skina, fur, hair, and feathers. Until within a recent period, expe- 
rimce imther than acience hoa directed the labours of manufacturcrB in their operations upon the»e substanceB. 
And at pnwent the rules taught by experience are in many cases atill pursued in practice, with, however, euch

^le twatitHk occufned in the Building is at the North side of the Western Main Arenue. The Areas 
indodea are Q. H. I. and J., from 10 to 14. In addition, specimens arc suspended from the Galleries, and in 
the centre of the Avenue is a case containing examples of the most rare and costly furs. 

The localities in which the manufactures concerned in this Class are carried on, and from whence articles 
far exhibition have chiefly been derived, arc Bermondsey, where the preparation of leather has been successfully 
woducted during a very long period, Hull, Swansea, Bristol, Cork, LiverjHx>l, Edinburgli, and Falmouth. 

Tbe manufacture of leather has been estimated as only fourth in inijioriance among the national manu- 
toires of Great Britain. A krfw amount of capital is employed in its jiroduction, and the number of 
■nisaiis atid others directly sup]x>rted by this branch of industry hnx been taken to amount to nearly a quarter 
ol a million. The total annual value of (lie leather manufactures is comjititcd at aU>ut fourteen millions 
tteriin;;. U appears probable that in the mere article of bouts and shoe*, upwards of seven njillions sterling 
ta snnuallv expended by the inhabitants of this country. If it bo considered that rather more than half the 
li4ther ptoioced is thus ap[ilicd, the remainder is employed in the proihiclion of harness, saddlery, gloves, and 
tW multifarious pur]ioaes for which leather is applicable. Of talc chmiistry has been studied attentively by 
iIk* <iependent upon this branch of industry, and successful results have ensued. A variety of patent 
I*nx»ies exist by which the enormous amount of time involved in tanning on the old system is abridged to a 
tUTpTinni; extent. With some specimens of leather it has not iKt-n uniisual to devote eighteen months or 
oinHnt! to their wimbination with tiie native principles of the bark. A few weeks are sufficient, under several 
'Jlhf uew s}-stcnis, to effect the same object. But it is stated that the leather produced rapidly, differs from 
■lui [icoiiuced hy a slower process of combination in its durability and solidity. And it is considered by 
wiic that lime is an essential element in the manufacture, and that it cannot be advantflKConsly shortened to 
>s; cnnsidcrable extent. I,ealher is unquestionably a chemical cran|jound, and this renders it i)robable lliat a 
)W Hid gradual process of comtiination between the (gelatine of the skin, and the Innnin ncid of the bark, 
""y [iroduee a leather, to some e\t«nt, of different proiicrtica to that foniicil bv a quicker operation. A very 
w.-t ainunnt of leather is, however, manufactured by tlie rapid prcccss, from n^iich it may 1<g concludol that 
J** imdiict piissesses great conmiercial value. A great variety of leathers in all conililions and states of mnnu- 
iiRure a exhibiteil, with instructive series illuKtniting the peculiarities of different mcthoiis of manufacture, 
"f fifing t/> the difference of the [rtirposes for which the jireiiared skin is to he afterwanls n]>plicd. 

Anntensive and interest in;z collection of funi is exhibited. Probnlily tlic op|K>rluiiity has never before pre- 
'^'"i itself for a complete study of this class of manufacture. Furs of the most rare description, devoted only 
^Ae ose of iDonarchs, are among these s|>ecimens. To the natiir.ilist desirous of ascertain ini; the genera an<{ 
?<rie« notdin^ the furs of coiimicrce. a subject on which much cimflicting opinion exists, these objects, wliicH 
jft /ally and correctly descriliod in tho Catalocne of this class, will lie highly interesting anil instructive. 
'Whers anri hair arc also represented liy various interesting objects, (lossessing their )ieculiar merits and

compound, of the gelatine of the skin, and of a chemical

red patent self-acting elastic spring roller, for 

red patent harness, with spring trace and tug,

plete control. 

nenJ fitting saddle is constructed to expand with 
a of the muscles, and spread the pressure or 
fcr a greater surface ; also to protect the withers 
ig wrung — a fault frequently occasioned by the 
e common saddle. It is objected to the common 
at in the event of a horse stumbling, the shoul- 
broed up into the gullet of the pommel, and the 
» is often broken ; but even when this is not the 
(xmfinement of the shoulders invariably prevents 
) action, and consequently the horse loses all 

recovering itself. 

ring bar is intended to relieve the horse of much 
od at the same time afford ease and comfort to 

the rider, as well as protection from the injuries that so 
often happen on the pommel and cantle of the saddle ; 
these, in the new invention, being soft and elastic. The 
spring bar is applicable to side saddles. 

The self-acting elastic roller obviates the iiyury result- 
ing from the use of the present tight roller, which, not 
being elastic, when buckled round a young animal, es- 
sentially retards and injures the formation of the chest, 
while it confines and weakens the action of the lungs.

[The process of tanning — that is, of the combination of 
the tannic acid of the oak bark with the gelatine of the 
hide — is generally a slow one; in the present instance 
remarkably so. New methods of hastening it forward 
have been introduced ; but it is said that the leather thus 
produced is not equal in solidity and durability to that 
obtained in the ordinary slow manner. — R. E.]

[The immense tracts of country over which the Hudson's 
Bay Company has control may be considered as vast 
hunting-groimds, affording a varied and exhaustless sup- 
ply of furs. The territorial possessions of this Company 
cover nearly one-eighth of the habitable globe. Russia 
is next in order and importance in this respect, but with 
a different race of animals. The fur produce of North 
America and the Canadas is also important. As we ap- 
proach the tropics and the warmer regions, the silky 
fur with which the animals are clothed in the northern 
climes disappears, and fin* of a totally different character 
is met with, which, although splendid in appearance, is 
not adapted for warmth or general use.

The cross and red fox are used by the Chinese, Greeks, 
Persians, &c., for cloak-linings and for trimming dresses. 
The white and blue fox is used in this and other coun- 
tries for ladies' wear. In the sumptuary laws passed in 
the reign of Henry HI., the fox is named with other fiirs 
then in use. — J. A..N.] 

6. Group of otter (Lutra Canadensis), 

[The Hudson's Bay North American and European 
otters are cliiefly exported for the use of the Russians, 
Chinese, Greeks, and others, for cape, collars, trimming 
national dresses, robes, &c. Upwards of 500 otters, the 
produce of Great Britain, during the last year, were ex- 
ported. — J. A. N.] 

7. Group of beaver {Castor Americanus), 

[The beaver in former years was one of the Hudson's 
Bay Company's most valuable productions; but since its 
use has been almost entirely discontinued in the manu- 
fitcture of hats, it has lost much of its value. Experiments 
have, however, been made, and with prospect of success, 
to adapt its fine and silky wool to weaving purposes. 
The skin of the beaver is prepared by a new process, after 
which the surface is cut by a new and ingenious machine, 
and the result is a beautiful fur for ladies' wear. It is 
exported in its prepared state to various parts of Europe 
and the Elast. The rich white wool from the under part 
of the beaver is largely exported to France. — J. A. N.] 

8. Group of lynx (Feiis Canadensis). 

9. „ lynx cat {Feiis Rufa). 

[Both the above furs, when dyed, were formerly much 
used. It is still dyed and prepared, and exported in 
large numbers for the American market. In its natural 
state, it is a greyish white, with dark spots, and is used 
by the Chinese, Greeks, Persians, and others, for cloaks, 
linings, focings, &c.: it is very soft, warm, and light. 
The fur formerly called the lucem is the lynx. — J. A. N.] 

10. Group of wolf {Canis Occidentalis), 

11. ,, ^hiev (Mustela Canadensis), 
wolverm {Oulo luscus). 




[The wolves are generally used as cloak and coat linings 
in Russia, and other cold countries; also for sleigh- 
coverings, and open travelling carriages. The other skins 
enumerated are principally used for trimmings, linings, 
&c. The tail of the fisher is very valuable, and exclusively 
used by the Jews. — J. A. N.] 

13. Group of badger ( Tkrid^a Za&rodbria). 

[The North American badger is exported for general 
wear; its soft fine fur renders it suitable for that purpose. 
The European badger, on the contrary, from the nature 
of its hair, is extensively used for Uie manufacture of 
shaving brushes. — J. A. N.] 

14. Group of martin or sable {Afustela martes), 

[The Hudson's Bay martin is consumed in large quan- 
tities in this coimtry, in France, and in Germany. The 
lining of a mantle made of black sables, with white 
spots, and presented by the Bishop of Lincoln to Henry I., 
was valued at 100/. In Henry the Eighth's reign, a 
sumptuary law confined the use of the fur of sables to the 
nobility above the rank of viscounts. — J. A. N.] 

15. Group of mink {Mustela vison), 

[The mink is exclusively the produce of the Hudson's 
Bay possessions and North America; it is consumed in 
Europe in immense numbers, principally for ladies' wear.

16. Ghoup of musquash, or musk-rat {Fiber sibethiaa), 

[The musquash, or large American musk-rat, is imported 
into this country in immense numbers: it was formeily 
much used in the manufacture of hats, but the introdue* 
tion of the silk hat has entirely superseded its use; and 
the fur is employed for wear after having undei^gooe pre*

[The large North American black bear is technically 
termed the army bear, because it is generally used for 
military purposes in this and other countries, for oape, 
pistol-holsters, rugs, carriage hammercloths^ sl^gfa cover- 
ings, &c. The fine black cub bears are much sooj^ 
after in Russia for making shube-linings, coat-liningi 
trimmings, fiacingB, &c. The other sorts, with the Isigi 
grey bears, for sleigh-coverings and aocompanimeots, fte. 
The white Polar bear, the supply of which is very limited, 
is generally made into rugs, which are often bordered 
with the black and grey bear. The brown or XsabeOa 
bear is at the present time used for ladiesT wear in 
America. — J. A. N.] 

24. CJroup of sea-otter {Eutrydra marUima), 

[The sea-otter is most sought after by the traden^ on 
account of its great commercial value : it is said to be the 
royal fur of China, and is much used by the officen of 
state, mandarins, &c. It is in great esteem in Bnseis, 
and principally worn by gentlemen for collars, eafi, 
fiicings, trimmings, &c. On account of its great weight, 
it is rarely used by ladies. — J. A. N]

is covered with very minute curia; this in produced, itia 
said, by the animal being, as soon as bom, scvm up 
tightly in a leathern akin, which prevents the curl ex- 
panding. The Hungarian lamb is produced in tlist 
country in immense numbers; of it the national coat, 
called the Juhasz Buuda, is made. In the summer or 
wet weather the fur or woolly part ia worn outside; in 

oter, when warmth is required, it is reversed: the akin 

tanned or dreaaod in a way peculiar to the coiuitr>', 
and decorated and embroidered in accordance with thf 

ana and taate of the wearer. In Spain, the lamb is 

id for the well-known and chomcteriatic abort jacket of 
that country, which is odomeil with filigree silver 
buttena; the coarser kinda of both colours aro used for 
:avalr;, and is also emplnyed fur moimtiug an<l 
bordering skiua, aa leopards, tigers, &c., for ornamental 
Mid domestic purpoaes. In the reign of Richard the 
Second, the sergeant at law wore a robe furred iuwide 
with white lambakin and a cnpe of the same.]

[Formerly the warps for hair-seating were made exclu-

exUosively used, chiefly for export to the United States, 

OQ aoeoont of its softness, as it produces cloth of a more 

pliable texture, and of smoother and more even surface, 

lad considered better suited to the purposes of tufting 

ttan the &bfic made from linen yam. 

Hone-hair suitable for making coloured seatings must 

be pure white; it is afterwards dyed of various colours, 
and of this there is only a limited supply. Some diffi- 
culty might consequently arise in procuring the raw 

Hair-seating is woven by hand, every hair being intro- 
duced singly. It differs in this respect from most other 
woven fabrics, in which there is a uniform and continuous 
supply of material, thereby permitting the application of 
steam-power. In hair-seating, the weft being in detached 
pieces, it has been found that power-looms cannot be ad- 
vantageously employed.]

Paper of cvciy description, frinling and bookbinding, with the miscellaneous orticleg connected with corre- 
snondcnoe, anil useful and omamonlal Btationcfy, form the subjects of the iiresent Class. Tbo manufacture of 
these articles — ministering not to the personal or domestic wants of mankind, fit much as to Iheir intellectnid 
requiremcuLs — is one the annual increase of which is coeilensii^ with the diffusion of knowledge. And it 
may be truly said, that, morally and intellectually considered, the iirescnt Class relales to a species of industry 
exercising indirectly aniorc extensive influence over social economy than any of those iuto which this Exhibitkn 
has been Huldivideil. IJooks, it has been said, carry the proiluctions of the human mind over the whol« 
world, and may be truly called the raw materials of every kind of science and art, and of all social immove- 
ment. The Sub-Classes are as follows : — A. I^per in the raw slate as it leaves the mill, such as Brown Paper, 
Millboards, Printing, Writing, and Drawing Papen, &c. ; B. Article* of Stalionerj-, as Envelopes, Lace Papers,

Includecl are F, 27 to 29, G. 11. I. J. 2(1 and 27. Rather more than 200 exhibitors appear tfl represent thii 
Class in its various branches of industry. 

ITie localities from whence the articles cshibitcd have been sent arc much less restricted than in precedine 
Classes. Many of the exhibitors appear in the cajncity of producers of small articles for fancy purposes ; ana 
as tliesc ore obviously capable of being made at home, requiring tostc and minute skill rather than mechuiicil 
power for their manufacture, the places from which they have been forwarded for exhibition have not the specisi 
interest attaching to great producing towns or cities, where thousands of machines and ojicrativcs are all occn- 
pieil in one department of niiinufacture. From the metropolis, however, where a lai^e demand for such articlei 
exists, tlie great proportion of them are derived. London also represents most largely the enormous printing 
resources of this country. Hut of these, as siiecimcns only of single works can appear, but a faint idea can le 
gained from the examples exhiV)ited, In one of the grealeet establishments of the Metropolis twenty machinM 
are constantly occupied, each of which is cajiablc of throwing off from 3,000 lo 4,000 impressions per hour, and 
in addition a large nimiher of printing machines for fine work are employed. These great printing establish- 
ments resemble very closely the lai^c manufactories of other districts, only their organirjition differs with the 
peculiar nature of the manufacture, if the mechanical production of printed books may be so termed. 

Paper, more legitimately reckoned among manufactures than printing, has a certain limitation to district* 
for particular kinds. Considerably more is made in England Uian in Scotland or Irehind. Kent is celebrated 
for its fine writing and drawing papers. From Lancashire, Berkshire, Hereford, and Derbyshire, papers of 
vario'us kinds are supplied. The quanlitv of ])aiicr annually manufactured in England two years ago amounted 
to 132,132,657 lbs. ; m 1834, it was little more than bolf that quantity. In 1839, it was esUmated that the 
quantity used, if eqiially divided among the population, T^-onld have been about three pounds and three- 
quarters for each individual. 

A variety of mechanical improvements, loth in the production of paper and in that of printed liooks, has 
been introduced of Inle. In the manufacture of paper the substitution of machine for hand labour lias bera 
attended with the most momentous results. In 1801, the |>rice of a ream of paper of a particular description 
was 36*. ; in 1843, the same paper could le purchased for rather less tlian half this sum. In 1721, it is esti- 
mated that 300,000 reams of pajier were annually produced in Great Britain. In 1841, 97,105,550 lbs. were 
made in the United Kingdom ; the total annual value is at present not far short of two millions sterling. 
Much of tbc increase thus exhibited is due to the introduction of mechanical power ; but the fiscal r^ulations 
upon this branch of industry, which were formerly extremely oppressive, having been removed to eoum 
extent, another cause of increased production and consumption is thus superadded. Paper may, however, be 
likewise regarded as a chemical nroiiuct, as it is certain that a lar,;e amount of chemical knowledge has been 
successfully combined with mecnanical skill in its preparation. By the co-oi>cmtive forcesof chemical processes 
and mechanical instruments, the most refuse matter thus becomes converted into a white and jiure materisl. 
As an evidence of the enormous length of jiajier produced by meclmnical power, two great rolls are exhibited 
—one is 750 yards lonu, the other 2,r>00 yards in length. 

The application of improved machinery to printiii™ is also of recent date, and has Iwcn attended with results 
of great moment. Protn^^ss is still maile in this direction, and in a proceiliug Class will be found a more 
delailodaccount of the introduction of an entirely new principle in printing (the vertical), the application of 

Areas F. 27 to 29 ; G. H. I. J. 26, 27. 


whidi for the rapid multiplication of newspapers is extending. By tliis arrangement, the vertical, tlie i)ower 
of f»roductioQ is only limited by the size of the machine. 

Among many interesting s{x»cimens of typography, those which exhibit the ])roduction of books in other 
toiu;iie8, by type cast in England, will attract notice. The Holy Scriptures are exhibited in one hundred and 
^"Striiiflerent languages — a noble evidence of the liighest ai)plication of industry to the enlightenment and 
welfare of mankind. Beautiful sjx'cimeus of the bookbinder's art are likewise shown. 

An envelope-foUling machine, placed at the side of the Main Avenue, is a striking instance of the successful 
application or mechanical movements to the iKirformance of the most delicate and comi)licatcd actions. By 
this machine, which would in strictness a])]x?ar to belong to a preceding Class, the movements of the hand of 
the folder are not only exactly imitated, but the result is more accurate and certain, and the ].ower of pro- 
duction is very largely mcreased. 

The peculiar interest which attaches to the objects in this Class, as the most powerful agents in the social 
tntl intellectual improvement of man, cannot fail to be awakened by the most casual insi)ection. Pajier, 
|irinting. and bookbinding, are, however, only the raw material, the application and reproduction of which is 
dt'i)endent u^)on the powers of the mind, not on those of matter. — R. E.

[The method of splitting paper of the thinnest texture 
is eitreroely simple. Two piacea of calico are firmly

gentle pull on each aide, the paper aplita into halvea, one 
of which adheres to the caUco on ona aide, and the other 
to ita oppoaita — the adheaion between the paper and the 
calico being greater than that of the lurfacas of the paper 
to each other. The split portiooa may then be removed 
by damping, and ao loosening the paste between the 
calico and paper. A bank-note, although of extremely 
thin texture, can va this way be separated into two 
halvea, on one of which remajna the impression of the 
plate, while the other la bhuik.— R. E.]

[In the interesting collection of papers in the Exhi- 
bition, from various paper-mills, there are groups whose 
degrees of excellence must be estimated by verj' different 
standards ; as, for instance, the brown wrapping and the 
fine hand-made drawing papers, the sugar and the fine 
printing papers, the bibulous plate paper for engravena* 
use, and the hard sized WTiting jiapers. Collectively it 
exhibits, nt one view, the various qualities which ai*e 
sought for by English consumers, and which, in many 
respects, differ from those required by our Continental 
neighbours; as an example, may be quoted the substantial 
English wi-iting papers and the thin post papers of France 
and Belgium, whose different qualities arise from the 
difference of postal regulations in those countries. 

The system of producing paper in continuous lengths 
by machinery was first introduced by Messrs. Fourdrinier 
into this country, they hav-ing purchased the patent 
right of Mr. Gamble, who, in 1804, obtained permission 
from the French Government to bring to England a 
model of a machine, invented in 1799, by Louis Robert, 
who was then employed in the paper works of Essonne. 
This machine of Mr. Roberts was essentially imperfect, 
l>ut it wna brought to a state of great jKjrfection for Messrs. 
Fourdrinier, by the ingenuity of Mr. Bryan Donkin; 
upon this has been founded the various descriptions of 
paper-making machines which have since that time been 
introduced, Thoy consist essentially of contrivances 
by which the paj>er pidp is made to flow on the siuface 
of an endless wire weV^; a rapid up and doym motion 
being given to it for the puq)ose of shaking the water out 
of the pulp, and thus producing a complete interweaving 
of the textile filaments. The continuous roll of paper 
thus formed is turned off upon a second solid cylinder, 
covered with felt, upon which it is condensed by a thirtl, 
and eventually delivered to drying rollers.

Enveloi>e-f<)lding machine, invented by Edwin Uill and 
Warren Do la Uue. 

[The following is the action of this machine. The 
feeding-boy places the previoiusly cut bliuik envelopert 
on to a pniall platfunn, which and falls in the 
rectangular rece.sw formed by the cylindrical axes of 
the folders (shown open in the engraving) ; the beiu*- 
inga of the folders sening by their elongjition to gui<lo 
the enveloi>o into its place at the moment of the nniall 
l)latforni falling. A plunger now descends oiul crea^•os 
the envelope by coriying it between the folder-axes, 
at the Bjune time tiuniing the flaps upwiu-ds in a 
vertical diniction: the plunger, which descended as a 
whole, now divi«les into two piu^s, the ends rising and 
the yides remaining down to hold the envelope until the 
end-folders have operated; these latter turn over the 
flaps, the one on the right of the feeding-lad t;iking a 
alight precedence, and being closely followed by the 
gumming ajjpanitus, which takes gum from an endkss 
blanket working in a trough, and after applying it U* the 
two end flaps, retires, at the same time the remaining 
half of the plunger moves ui>wards, to allow of the side 
folders turning over the remaining two flajjs, the folder 
nearest the feeder taking precedence. During these 
operations, the end-folders have remaine<l at rest, and the 
whole four open simultanecuisly. The taking-ofl' appa- 
ratus, with its lingers tipped with \'uleanized caoutchouc, 
now moves f(trward over the folded envelope, which is 
lifted upwanls by the rise of the small platform and re- 
treats with it. placing each cnveloj.i', as it i-< su'vessively

Although the faahion of uaing envelopes waa common 
in Franoe, and had been, to n noall extent, introduced 
Into England prior to 18.39, yet their conguinption vraa 
too inaigniScant to call forth any but the rudeet me- 
chanical appliaucea. It ia to the HlimuluH created by 
the adoption in, 1839, of Mr. Rowland Hilla ayrtem of 
poctoge refonn, and the conAoqiient increaaod domuid for 
envelopes, that their manufacture owes it« rank amongst 
the arts, and ita poaaesAtoo of some of the moet ingemous 
machinery recently invented. 

The total annual nimiber of letters pBonng through the 
Post-offiofl in the United Kingdom before the change in 
the postage wae atwut TS,OD0,00O. The fourpenny-rate, 
knd the alteration ■□ the system of charge by number of 
enclosures to that by weight, was introduced on the 5th 
of December, IB.3B, and on the 10th of Janmiry, 1840, 
the rate was reduced to one penny: during that year the 
cumber of letters increaited to 169,000,000, about half of 
which ware enclosed in envelopes. The number of letters 
haa bean steadily increasing since that period, and during 
the y«ar 1850, it reached the ostoniahing number of 
347,000,000, or 1,000,000 per day; the proportion of 
letters enclosed in envelopes baa likewise increased from 
one-halt to fivcsiiths of the total quantity, ho that in 
round numbera 3OO,000,Ou0 of envelopes pass annually 
through the Post-ofBce; bewdes which there is nearly 
Kn equal number used in private conveyance. What 
doea this million ol envelopes contain t Their expo- 

sition would ftimiah an Inatructive and entertainitiX 

In illustntjon of th« artJcles Bometimes sent by post, 
it may be cdted, that some yean back Profeasor Henaloir 
was in the habit of receiving, from memben of an agri- 
cultural society which he had established, apeclmens of 
living sluga of vanouE kinds, sant for examina^on, wilt 
a view to his advice for their extenoination. Wen 
it not for the cheap postage many of the publishing 
societiea now in esiatenoe would not have been eatablished, 
on account of the expense of collecting nunuacripU, 
transmitting proo&, and circulating books. But it ia not 
only in thia way that the postal reform haa axtvnded iu 
benefita, for with the reduction of nM«i a liberal poh^ 
has inoreaaed the fiuiUlJea of delivery by the caudlliah- 
merat since 1839 of 4,600 new post-officei, wliiah an 
estimated as aerving about 14,000 villages. 

Hetuming to the manufiicture of envelopea, m Snd 
but little progreaa until March 1S45, when Hr. Edvin 
Hill and Mr. Warren De la Bue took out a patent for 
cutting and folding machinery. Until thia period, enre-

Honorary Secretaries, Rev. W. W. Champneys, M.A., 
and Rev. Ebenezer Henderson, D.D. Corresponding 
Secretary, Mr. Jones. 

The Society was formed to promote the eircalation of 
religious books and treatises in foreign countries, as well 
as throughout the British dominions. It constitutes a 
Christian union of members of the Established Church 
and of Protestant dissenters. It has printed important 
tracts and books in about 110 languages; its annual 
circulation from the Depository in London, and from 
various foreign auxiliaries, amounts to about 24,000,000; 
its receipts, for sales and benevolent objects, to more 
than 62,000/. ; and its total distribution to March, 1851, 
including the issues of its affiliated societies, to about 
549,000,000 of copies of its publications. There are now 
about 4,743 English publications, besides several hundred 
in foreign languages, on its catalogue. These works are 
varied in size and contents, and suited to different classes 
of the commimity. Several books and tracts specially 
designed to improve and commemorate the Great £xhi> 
bition have been issued in English, French, (German, and 
Italian. By a carefully arranged system in the concenis 
of the Depository, the sale of the publications is made to 
cover all the expenses of producing them, and of the 
necessary establishment of Uie Society. Thus the whole 
of the subscriptions, donations, and contributions is 
applied to the gratuitous circulation of its publications, 
without any deduction or chai^ whatever. In aid of 
home and foreign benevolent objects, the Society receives 
about 6,560/. per annum, while its grants during the 
past year were 8,560/., being 2,000/. beyond the receipts. 
The Committee have supplied 3,028 libraries, at half- 
price, to National, British, Parochial, Day, and Sunday 
Schools, which were imable to pay the full amount. 
The total grants of libraries, for various interesting 
objects, amount to 6,055.

circular alphabets, by its angular fonn^ the letten are 
rendered more distinct t^ the touch; and by the exclusion 
of the capitals, the attention of the blind is concentrated 
upon ae, instead of 52 lettara, and the size of the printing 
may be reduced. Volume, containing the Epistle to the

of a cover with bars to guide the linca, which are written 
from the bottom upwanls; and of small stamps, with the 
letters formed of common pins, which are pricked through 
the paper, and read on the opposite side. By means of the 
two reginter points on each side of the Aiune, and by shift-

Electro-stereotype plate for letter-press printing. This 
specimen is from a mould of gutta percha, taken from a 
page of diamond types in a screw press. The i^tta 
percha was lud on warm, the pressure applied ittmia- 
diatelj, and left on for fifteen minutes. When tbe mould 
was taken off it was brushed over with plumbago, and 
copper depouted upon it by the known proceoa. When 
the copper deposit is backed up with gutta percha, it is 
ready for press. 

The advantage of electro-stereotype over stereotype ia, 
that it will last much longer, and work much cleaner. 
The exhibitor baa woriced one of each together, and when 
the stereotype was completely worn, Uie electro-stereotype 
was as good sa at first. 

'Gutta percha plate to he used in letter-press printing. 
Flatea made of gutta percha from wood-cuts, will work a 
latge impreauon with letter-press; advantageous when 
wood-cuta are expensive, as the originals might be saved. 

Gutta percha plates can be made in a short time at a 
trifling coat ; and when 2, 4, or 6 are worked together, it 
will greatly facilitate the work, and teasen expense. 

Make a mould from a wood-cut by the method shove 
described; brush it over with plumbago; lay it on the 

the I 


[This process t^ipears to offer many advantages, if tbe 
practical difficulties of completely covering the impreasioni 
of the type letters, or the lines of an engtaving, with i^um- 
bago, are not too great. The gutta percha plate, bung 
properly prei>ared, is connected with the voltaic battery, 
and placed in a solution of the sulphate of copper, whii^ 
then undergoing electro-chemical decompontion, deposits 
pure copper in all tbe lines and over the entire siir&os. 
It would appear, if lead was used instead of gutta p«seha 
for backing the plate, that it would be better fitted for 
printing than when gutta percha is employed. — K. H.]

[The phonographic or phonotypic systems have this 
peculiar principle, that words are written and printed u 
they are pronounced. Since pronunciation differs with 
districts, it i4)pears difficult to decide upon a standard, 
and if decided upon by one district exclusively, then the 
phonographic system becomes exposed to more objectioDa 
than the ordinary orthography. — R. E.] 

198 Society for Teaching the Blind to Read, 

Atcnue Boad, BetjenCs Park — Proprietors. 

Embossed books for the blind. The characters which 
have been made use of for letters are raised above Uie 
surface of the paper, so that the sense of touch may sui^ly 
the want of sight. These characters, which are repre- 
sented in the annexed cut, are simple in their form, 
being a straight line, a curved line, and a dot placed 
in different positions; by this means the complicaticHi 
of strokes in the letters of the alphabet is avoided, 
and the pupils are enabled with ease to distinguish one 
letter from another. 

Ab cde fc hi

As the finger cannot pass over a word so n^Hdly 
as the eye, greater fluency is secured by the use of 
contractions similar to those employed in short-hand 
writing. Many who have lost their sight in advanced 
life, and whose sense of touch has become less acute 
from hard work, have been enabled to read this simple 
alphabet, when they have found it impossible to dis- 
tinguish more complicated characters. An adequate 
knowledge of the system can be acquired by a pupil in nx 
months, and by many in a shorter period. The system 
was proposed by the late Mr. Lucas, of Bristol, and wu 
reduced to practice by the Rev. J. W. Go wring, in the 
year 1842, under the direction of the London Society for 
teaching the blind to read. The greater portion of the 
Scriptures, with the litui^ of the Churcn of England, 
and various books of elementary instruction, have already 
been published in these characters. 

Cyphering boards for the blind. The boards being 
perforated with square holes, types with simple cha- 
racters raised in their ends can be arranged in any order. 
Five characters similar to those employed in reading are 
used in different positions, each having a numeral value. 

Maps for the blind. The land is raised above the water, 
and cities, mountains, rivers, and boundary lines are all 
marked so as to be easily felt. 

(Geometrical boards for the blind. 

Specimen of embossed copies, used for iiiBtructing the 
pupils in the common system of writing, the paper used 
being prepared with embossed lines. 

Apparatus for enabling the blind to emboss Lucas's 
characters, and thus communicate with each other. The 
characters are raised on a stamp, having ten arms, fi^tUng 
into the aperture of a slide so that the letters cannot be 
incorrectly formed ; this slide moves along a h%i, and 
indicates, by means of a rack, the distance it has been 
moved. The lines are kept equidistant by the bar which 
moves down the board, which is retained in its position 
by a simple contrivance. 

A specimen of music for the blind, in raised characters, 
each character denoting both the sound and its length.

arts of the colour-printer and dyer fonn the subject represented hy this Clasa. These arts have mado 
nt* imjiortaut progress during late years. At first, taught only by a long and varied experience, the impartor 
of oilour u'ad restricted to the use of a few comparatively simple suhstatices for the extraction of colour, aiid 
iU ap|ilication to various fahrics. But since chemistry has been allowed lo occupy a part of the atlentiou of 
llic manufacturer, a very dilVcrcnt result has arisen. 1'hc indications of experience are confirmed by the 
lachin;;s of philosophy, and in a large number of instances a vast economy of material, time, and labour, has 
Wn effectt>d. In addition, chemistry has brought to light new compounds, and new means of obtaining dyes 
imi mlouiB of ureat brilliance from a few simple com hi nations. It is consequently now almost universal to 
Sod that attached to the extensive works of the dyer and colour-printer, is a lai^e laboratory fitted up for che- 
mical investigations, and the processes developed in which are often the source of very great commercial 

This Class includes Woven, Spun, Felted, andLaid Fabrics, when exhibited as specimens of printing or dyeing. 
In the Sub-Class A. are included the Printing or Dyeing of Woollen or any Mixed Suhstancea ; li. Includes 
[ Printed Calicoes, Cambrics, Muslins, Velvet, and Velveteens ; C. Dyed Cotton Goods ; D. Dyed Linen Goods ; 
' E. The Dyeing or Printing of Leather, Hair, Fur, &c. 

The special port of the Building devoted to objects in this Class is that included by Areas L. M. and N. 
2 w 5, and O. 3 and 4. But throughout the Buildii^ specimens of tlio art of tlie dyer in the production of 
ll* nii"«l rich and lieautiful colours are presented in objects which appear, ]iroperiy, in other Classes. Tim 
Turkey-red calico and cloth employed in its decoration, and in the indication of its various departments, 
iTi'liiltii, Arc, form an interesting instance of this kind. 

'flie ]>rint-works of lanowhire, and ]iart!culariy of Manchester and its viciuitv, form the most extensive 
Kiircpn of jirinted and dyed arlicles. Glasgow, Carlisle, Crayford, Paisley, unit other places, also contain 
ini'irtant works of a somewhat similar description. Tlie oriijin of cotton printing appears lo have taken t>laco 
in the vidnity of the metropolis in 1675. 

During the last half-century, asHrprising development of printing in colour and dyeing has taken jilace. It 
i^fvtinialed that at its commencement 'the annual quantity of cotton printed was 32,8C9,T29 yanls. But in 
IW, this quantity had attained the enormous incrciiso of 347,4 .'■)0,29!l yanls; and it has since still further 
ianvaiiol. The (•rint-works of Lancashire, and other places, form a sur|>risini; spectnctu of the operation of 
cWmiml and mechanical prices on the great scale. That which was formerly the labour of weeks, is now per- 
f'lmifl in a iby. A piece of cloth is printed at the rate of hundreds of yards in a day. Un one side of a 
iii*-Line-rooai it ascends moist, with colour from the engraved copjier cylinder ; on the other it descends dried, 
n-iilv fi>r the final iinccsefa. The printing machines are marvels of iusenuity : the {latlern is applied hy tho 
en.-nicl surface of one or more copper cylinders, which have received the jiattern fri.-ui a sniall steel cylinder, 
''r-'niill,"cn|Qbl.c uf impressing several with tlie same design, and thus saving the cost of rc|iealed engraving. 
Al fir^i only one colour could lie applied ; now from rix, or even ci^^t and ten colours, arc applied in constant 
(uco.-xhiou. ' These machines perform their work with great accuracy and sliced, and proilucc all the commoner 
fat!"nia sef'U in liaily use ; but hand labour is still employed, even in these works, for fine or complicated 
Ri-irk, and more jiarticularly for printing mousseline-de-lalne dresses, &c. The goods thus printed arc cx|iorled 
ill iniHiense <(iiantities lo all jiarts of the world, a largo portion being also retained for home use. For foreiim 
tiiuntrit-R a certain i>cculiarity of chromatic arrangement is necessary, in order to render the articles adapted to 
the ta*ite if jiurchasers. 

Tii*- art of the dyer in towns ia a manufacture on a smaller scile, and carried on generally in small establish- 
ments devoted to that pur|>ose. But extensive ilye-woiks exist, wliicli are employed in iniiwirting various 
coioiirs to cloth, *c., on the great scale. To the pnis|itrous inirsuit of cither of thrsc arts, it is l>c;.'iuning to lio 
in'.rc and more widely felt, that an enliKhtcneil and |>lii!osfiphical mind is of the first consequence. And

[Formerly the application of coloured designs to fiEibrics 
of various kinds was entirely effected by what is called 
block-printing, and which, in fact, closely resembles type 
printing. A block of wood or metal, or a combination 
of both, being engraved with the pattern, received the 
colour by the ordinary means, and this was then trans- 
ferred by hand to the fabric. For every different colour 
a different block was required, and in complicated pat- 
terns, Avith many colours, the process was excessively 
tedious. It is, however, still largely employed where 
great care in the application of the colour and sliarpness 
of definition in the pattern is required, but block- 
printing can only be remunerative in the better descrip- 
tions of goods, as the infinitely more rapid and ecano- 
mical process of cylinder printing has almost superseded 
it for the production of those of commoner kinds. —

[Few departments of ornamental industry have ex- 
perienced so many vicissitudes, in consequence of the in- 
troduction of mechanical power, as that of the laoe manu- 
facture. The lace of Honiton, in Devon, has long rivalled 
the most beautiful and costly productions of the Continent. 
At one period during the last war, veils of Honiton laoe 
sold for very lai^ sums, as much as 100 guineas having 
been paid for fine specimens. Honiton laoe is entirely 
made on the pillow by hand labour.]

[The canvas employed in the manufacture of floor- 
cloth, is produced principally in the north, and in large 
quantities at Dundee. The size of the canvas, 6 yards 
or upwards in width, and about 100 in length, will con- 
vey an idea of that of the loom producing it. The 
application of the oil colours and patterns is effected in 
various places. Prior to this, the canvas is prepared for 
the reception of the paint by a coating of size. The 
paint and pattern are applied by hand, and the latter is 
effected by the usual process of block-printing.]

48 Johnson & Co., 1 13 Regent Street. — Patentees. 

Patent ventilating hats. The principle of ventilating 
these hats being to admit the air through a series of 
channels cut in thin cork, which is faMtoiied to the leather 
lining, and a valve fixed in the top of the crown, which 
may be opened and shut at pleasure to allow the per- 
spiration to escape.

[The general principles upon which a hat is made, are 
of a most imperfect description as far as relates to the 
comfort and probably, in a degree, to the health of the 
wearer. It has been conjectured that one among other 
causes of premature baldness, is the deficient ventilation, 
and the undue contraction of the rim of most hats. In 
the present instance an attempt to obviate these defects 
is exhibited.]

The cotton-grasses, or bog-cotton, are species of sedge 
of the geiuis Kriopl^irum. The E. vvjiuat'tm, single-

by Sir John Throckmorton. 

An oil painting: Sir John Throckmorton presenting 
two South Down wether sheep to Mr. John Coxeter of 
Greenham, Newbury, Berks, who engaged, on the day 
they were presented, to make their wool into a piece of 
cloth, that should be made into a coat by 9 o'clock of 
the same evening. 

The sheep were immediately shorn, and the wool sorted 
and spun. The yam was spooled, warped, loomed, and 
woven. The cloth was burred, milled, rowed, dyed, dried, 
sheared, and pressed. The cloth having been thus made 
from the fleece in 11 hours, was put into the hands of 
the tailor at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, who completed 
the coat at 20 minutes past 6, having been only 2 hours 
and 20 minutes in making it : Mr. Coxeter then presented 
the coat to Sir John Throckmorton, who appeared with 
it on, before a large assembly of spectators.

[By the number of gauge is meant the quantity of loops 
within a given space, and hence when these are increased 
within that space, the quality of the fabric is increased in 
delicacy and value. 

The invention of the stocking frame is generally ascribed 
to William Lee, an expelled (Cambridge student, who, 
watching the fingers of his wife, as she toiled for their 
mutual support by knitting stockings, devised this 
machine. By Elisabeth and James I., Lee was denied 
that protection and encouragement due to inventors; he. 

however, succeeded in receiving, at the hands of Sully, the 
minister of the French King Henry, an acknowledgment 
which was denied by his own countrymen. Lee died in 
France, and one of his apprentices brought the manufus- 
ture back into England, where it has been finally esta- 
blished and successfully carried out, Kottingham and 
Leicester being its grand centres.]

The prenent CIsm in some de^^'ee carries the attention aeain amonp; the implements \iaei\ in manurnctuTes, tai 
comprehends ftll those tooU not included in L'loss >>. The tools l>elonirinn to the present Class are principally 
of tho sniallest description enijiloyed in arta reqinrin? delicacy and precision of touch, rather than the eierciM 
of mechanical force. The knives and other sharji instruments, coming under the general denominatiiHi o! 
Cutlery, are ohjecls of familiar knowledge and employment. 

The ClasB is divisible into two Suh-Classes ; the first of these. A., includes Cutlery, such as Knives and 
Forku, Pen and Pocket Knives, Ilazors. SciMsors, and Shear* : of these some are employed for jiersonal, domestic, 
or commercial purposes — some for use in various trades and handicrafts — and some belong to the claas of orna- 
mental rather than uhcAiI articles : 1). comp^'hends Files and other small Rdae Tools, not iDcluded among 
Hanufactnring Tools in Class H — of these, aome are applicahle to the pnriosea of the en<;ineer and smith, other* 
to tboKC of masons, &c. A liner kind ii employeil hy jewellers, Inpiduries. watchmakers, and other workers in 
philosophical instruments or in precious metals ; others are used for wooilnork by carpenters, cabinet-makers, 
&c., and others hy artists and engravers. 

For thoeo articles in this Class which have not been sent from Sheffield, search will be made in the North 
Gallery. Tho Sheffield aoods, beloQi^ng in strict propriety to this Class, arc included amona hardware in the 
following Class, and will be found in the Ituildin;; on the South Siile of the Kavc, about midway between the 
Transejit and the Western extremity. The manufactures of Sheffield being the most important, it is necetisary 
to defer the notice of them to the siicccciling Class, for the reasons just stated. Nevertheless, in the Metrojiolia 
itself a very considerable amount of the l>cst de^icriptions of articlex of cutler>' are maile ; but the proportion of 
Metropolitan seeds in this department, is small in comparison with that of SbeHicld, in which the manufacturs 
of cutlery holds a ixwilion of the srenlest extent and importance. 

Many of the minute tools emplovcd in the carver's art and in that of ensravina are here exhibited. These tools 
have acquired much celebrity, and are manufactured of a SH|«rior description of steel, and with much skill and 
car«. Although prescntin;; no extenial feature of interest, these minute instruments represent the means by 
which much of what is artistically beautiful and pleasing to the eye has been produced : the ingenuity which 
applies itself to tho perfection of the most ordinary articles is conspicuously manifested in many of the speci- 
mens of cutlery exhibiteil, employed either for personal or domestic use. — R. E.

An slid off laterally, the other side being turned down, 
tad the proeeas repeated until the bar of steel is

Tub imall«r manuiactures of irou, copper, brasa, tin, &c., arc represented Ly the objects conlainod wilhin the 
limits of this extensive Clasa. These manufactures are of coDudcmbic importance to this couutry, and employ a 
large number of hands and a considerable ammuit of capital. But the objects themselves are often of the most 
triuing description ; and were it not for the knowledge that ui>oii their production depends the subdetence of 
many thousaoda of operatives, they mi^t be passed by without notice. Itut in the manufacturing world the 
minutest article has its importance when the cousumpijon of that article is ;rrcat and the demand constant. It 
will consequently be found that the most insignificaut object comprehended within this Class has important 
relatione with the prosperity, not merely of a few individuals or of one miumfaclory, but of an entire district 
and its population. 

The Class includes the following Sub-Classec: — A. Brass Manufacture, as Cabinet and General Bran 
Potmdrj-, Hinges, Fastenings, Door-knockers, Castors, &c. ; B. Copper, Zinc, Tin, Pewter, and General Bradery, 
as Kettles, Saucejians, Urns, Tubing, Inkstands, Spoons, &c. ; C. Iron Manufacture, as Stoves, Grates, Fenders, 
Locks, Hinges, &c., and objects of a larger kind, as Man^lea, Gates, &c. ; D. Steel Manufacture, as " Heavy 
Steel Toys," such as Hammers, Vices, &c., and " Light Steel Toys," as Brooches, Buckles, 4c. ; E, Buttons; 
F. Wirework, Gauze, Hooks and Eyes, Fins, &c. 

A considerable amount of s)>ace is occupied by this important Class in the Building. Tlie articles comprised 
in it will be found on the South Side of the Western Main Avenue, to the West of the Colonial Prodnctiona. 
ITie Areas L. M. N. and 0. Ifl to 20, and 25 to 27, are occupied with these. Aloiij- a considerable [lart of the 
length of the Avenue O. P., Stoves, Pipes, Baths, Lamjis, and a miscellimeous collection of Uardware of every 
description will bo found. 

Birmingham has long been connected with the mimufacture of hardware of every kind, to such a degree tliat 
the name of the town has often become associated with these articles. Some dejuirtmeuts of the trade arc like- 
wise vigorously pushed at Wolverhampton, Walsall, and Sheffield ; but Birminsliam may be le^timately 
considered as the metropolis for hardwares generally ; and the enormous extension of its trade, attributable in a 
great measure to these manufactures, indicates the momentous results to which the production in quantities of 
the most trivial objects may give rise. In forty years the population of Birmingham has increased by neariy 
150 |»er cent, ; and what is highly instructive and remarkable is the fact that, in proiwrtion to the increase oif 
production has been the decrease of jiricc, until there has been a re<luctiou in the same periott of about 62 per 
cent., and in some articles oven to 85 per cent. The exports have likewise immensely increased in the same 
time : at its commencement they slightly exceeded 6,600 tons annually ; in 1849, the exports amounted to 
23,421 tons, the value of which has been estimated at about 2,201,315/. sterling. This relates merely to the 
iron manufactures : of the brass and copper manufactures were ex[iorled in 1849 to the value of 1,875,865/.; 
and it deserves notice, that the greatest proiwrtion of these manufactures absorbed by any country is that 
annually imported by Hindoatan — a country whose early reputation in metal manufactures is a subject (^ 
familiar knowledge. 

The system of the manufacture of hardware in Birmingham is peculiar, and presents a striking contrast to 
that adopted in Manchester and other large manufncturing places — the o]>cratives are themselves the manufac- 
turers. Hiring a workshop in which steam-iHiwer is laid on, and which is specially fitted up by the owner of 
the building, in which many such workshops are contained, the artizan plies his peculiar trade, manufactures 
his articles, carries them home to the merchant, and receives the weekly paj'ment for them, which enables him 
to procure fresh materials, arul proceed in the ensuing week with his regular labours. A very largo proportion of 
hardwares is thus manufactured. But this system is not universal ; and regularlv-organisal factories, employ- 
ing a Inrgc number of workpeople, and {lossessing all the distinguishing features of a great pnxtucing estabhui- 
ment, exist, and are in active operation. These establishments exhibit their beautiful productions in thi« 

The immense variety of articles included in this Cla-is renders it impossible to refer in a succinct manner to 
any groups of objects ; and this is the less necessary, as such objects must attract the notice they deserve en 
inspection, and fuller information may be foimd in this part of the Catalogue, — R, E.

[Iron wire ro})es are of equal strength with a hempen 
rope of four times the weight, and resist the wear an<i 
tear they are subjected to in " running gear" twice as 
long. If the surface of a wire-rope be left in any part 
unprotected by some coating irapeneti*able to moisture, 
the internal fibres become in process of time oxidized, 
and iinserti decay jf^es forwai'd. Iron cleaned by acid an<l 
plunged into a bath containing melted zinc, becomes 
coated with that metal, and the parts left unzinked alone 
rust. Iron thus treated is said to be ' * galvanized." — S. C. \

Patent kitcheners or cooking grates. 

Thin kitchener or cooking grate is remarkable for 
economy in fuel, having only one small Gre placed in the 
centre, between two large ovens. These OTena can be 
converted into superior roasters by opening a small ralvs 
on the top, when a current of air circulates through the 
oven, carrying ofl' every portion of steam into the flnea. 
The closets at either end are applicable to keeiung viand* 
hot when cooked, or they can be heated for baking paaby, 
bread. Sec. The hot plate on the top is capable ol keep- 
ing in full work several steam kettles, stewp^ns, fcc., 
and boiling or frying can bo done over the fire at the 
same time ; roasting can alito be carried on before the 
open fir«. At the back of the fire is placed a 50-gallon 
wrought-iron boiler, capable of supplying hot water to 
the upper part of the house, the draw-off cocka in front, 
the scullery and ataUe deMrtroent if required, and also 
of supplying a bath placed in any part of the premises. 
Another feature in this kitchener, is the extremis clean- 
liness with which the cooking is carried on. 

They are manufactured of various sizes.

Registered conducting leaf stove, adapted for heating 
large apartments in houses exposed to a north -eastern 
aspect. The diflSculty of heating large rooms to a com- 
fortable temperature, in the depth of winter, led to the 
invention of the stove exhibited. In an ajNirtment almost 
insensible to the action of the ordinarj' fire-i)laoe, and in 
which the thennometer indicated but a feeble tendency 
to rise two hours after fire-lighting, it was affected to 
the extent of 20 degi*eeR in little more than as many 
minutes after lighting a fire in the leaf stove. The sen- 
sitiveness of the leaves to the diffusion of heat Is so gi-ejit 
that the combustion of a few shavings or a little paper in 
the fire-place is immediately and sensibly felt in the 
a|>artment. Such a nwult, obtained not only without 
any sacrifice of, but in addition to, the comfort of an 
oiKjn fire in the onlinary fire-phu-e, cleiu'ly demonstrates 
the value of the heat which we jHTinit to pass up the 
chimney. By the leaf stove it is ren<lered available, and 
made to circulate in the ajwirtment, or may be shut off at 

The conducting leaf stove is formed of plates of metal 
so placed that e;ich one is a conducting leaf, a jKirtiou of 
which goes down, as it wei*e, into contact with the fiixj, 
and is exposed to the direct action of the heat. The 
heat thus received is rapidly <listribiite<l over the whole 
surface of the leaf. When it is desired to take advantage 
of the heat conummicated by conduction, it is only 
needful to set the valves ofx^n, and permit the air to 
circulate around the leaves; by closing the valves, the 
circulation is suj^pressed or modified at j>leasure. The 
rapidity of the conduction of the heat prevents the metal 
attaining a high temixjraturo. The principle of this stove 
is to diffuse a lai*ge volume of air at a genial temperature 
by the conducting power of extensive surfaces. In onli- 
nary stoves, masses of metal heat small vohimes of air 
to a high temperature, by which it is rendered unwhole- 
some. This stove and its int<»rior construction are shown 
in the next page. 

The principle of the conducting leaves can l>e applie<l 
in a great variety of fonus, and to the construction of

Files and rasps of various sorts and sizes, suitable for

Lftrge file, 54 inches long, cut after the form and 
manner in which files are generally done, to show the 
various forms of light and shade. Designed and executed 
by Hiram Younge, of Sheffield. 

[File-making is a manufacture which is still in a great 
measure confined to Sheffield. It is peculiar ihat hitherto 
no machine has been constructed capable of producing 
files which rival those cut by the human hand. Machine- 
made files have not the "bite" which hand-cut files have: 
this is accounted for by the peculiar facilities of the 
human wrist to accommodate itself to the particular angle 
suitable to produce the proper "cut." "Small files are 
made out of best cast-steel; those of a lai^ger size from 
ordinary steel ; flat files are forged on an ordinary study. 
Other forms on bolsters, with the indentature correspond- 
ing to the shape required being thereon impressed, a 
chisel wider than the blank to be cut is used as the only 
instrument to form the teeth : it is moved by the hand 
with the greatest nicety. After cutting, and previous to 
hardening, the file is immersed in some adhesive sub- 
stance, such as ale-grounds, in which salt has been dis- 
solved : this protects the teeth from the direct action of 
the fire; it is then immersed perpendicularly in water; 
cleansed by finishing." — W. C. A.]

Steel plate for the use of engravers, machine-ruled, by 
C. Mottram, Esq., of London. The sky tint upon this 
plate is perhaps the most severe test to which a steel plate 
can be subjected; the surface is free from spots or seams; 
and it is exhibited to show that steel is well adapted to 
the wants of the etcher and engraver. 

Proof impression from the plate on India paper. 

[An entire change in engraving has taken place by the 
substitution of steel for copper plates. An engraving 
made upon copper is speedily rendered useless by the 
process of inking, and the fiiction necessary to remove 
the superfluous ink. The rubbing with whitening to 
clean the face of the plate, wears away the surface, and 
renders it valueless after a few thousand impressions. 
This is not the case with a steel plate; an instance is on 
record where 500,000 copies were printed from one plate. 

The Queen's head on the postage stamp h.oa been only 
once engraved. It had, in 1842, been multiplied 6,000 
times, that is to say, the original produced 6,000 plates, 
which printed all the postage stamps of the above kind 
which had been used since the introduction of Rowland 
Hill's measure up to the period stated. 

The multiplication of a steel plate is a featiu« of some 
importance: a plate is engraved and hardened; from this 
an impression is taken upon a softened steel roller; this 
steel roller is then hardened, and softened steel plates 
being passed under it, an impression is imparted to them; 
they are in turn hardened, and are equal to the original 
as to their impressions. This method is adopted in bank- 
note engraving; and the postage-stamp plates are pro- 
duced by the same means. — W. C. A.]

Pattern razors, manufactured of the best steel, exhibited

Frame-back rasor, ground exceedingly thin, and cannot 
require to be again ground, thus retaining a fine and

form an elegant contrast to the blade, and enhance the 
beauty of appearance as well as afford more opportunity 
for originality of design and skill .in execution. 

Pean-tang rasEor, constructed to prevent rust. 

Rasors with hollow-ground %laaes are especially de- 
signed for barbers' use. These do not require to be again 
ground, on account of their extreme thinness. 

[Two workmen are always engaged in razor-making. 
The rod of steel of which they are made is about half an 
inch in breadth, and of sufficient thickness to form the 
back. The stake upon which they are forgod is rounded 
on both sides of the top, which is instrumental in thin- 
ning the edge, and much facilitates the operation of 
grinding. The blades are then hardened and tempered 
in the ordinary way, with the exception, that they are 
placed OB their back on an iron plate, and the momrat 
they assume a straw colour of a deep shade they are re- 

The grinding follows, on a stone revolving in water; 
then glazing on a wooden disc. The fine polish is given 
by a wooden wheel, having its circimiference covered 
with buff leather, which is covered with crocus. The 
ornamentation of the blade, by etching with aeid, and 
gilding, if such is required, is the last process. — W. C. A]

[Steel may be regarded as a carburet of iron ; it is 
usually manufactured by the process of cementation. 
The cement, as it is called, consists of the charcoal of 
hard wood — sometimes soft is employed — mixed with a 
small quantity of ashes and some salt. The bottom of 
the trough of the cementing furnace being covered with 
this mixture, bars of steel are placed upon it; these are 
again covered with the carbonaceous compound, and so 
on until the trough is filled. The whole is closed, and 

the fire urged until all acquires a temperature of about 
100° Wedgwood ; and this is steadily maintained for some 
days, the time varying, under different conditions, from 
four days to ten. In these furnaces, 12 tons of bar iron 
may at each charge be converted into steel. Blistered 
steel is so called from the air -bubbles which cover its 
surface, which blisters appear to result from the forma- 
tion of carbonic oxide in the process of cementation. 

ThQ operation of tiltifttj is performed by beating the 
steel under tilt-hammers until it is rendered of a very 
uniform structure. The tilt-hammers usually weigh 
about 200 cwt.— R. H.]

[Iron is converted into steel by a process called cemen- 
tation, which consists in placing iron bars in troughs of 
fire-brick, and covering them with layen of powder of 
wood charcoal, salt, and ashes. Dr. Ure is of opinion that 
the latter material is valueless. Care is taken that the 
iron bars do not touch each other. The troughs, when 
filled, are covered up with loam, and subjected to the 
action of a furnace, the heat of which is uiiged until it 
arrives at the proper temperature, and until the trough 
and its contents become one red-hot mass of matter. In 
this state it is maintained for a longer or shorter period, 
viz., from four to ten days, according to the nature of 
the steel desired ; if soft, the time is shorter. The heat 
produces the combination of the carbon with the iron 
and completes the conversion of a soft substance into 
one of the most brittle ; it then undergoes the process of 
hardening, by being plimged into cold water. 

Shear-steel is formed by uniting together several bars 
of blister-steel by means of a steel rod, and sprinkling 
over it, when heated, sand. After being again heated, it 
is drawn out into a bar by means of a tilt hammer, viz., 
a lai^ hammer, which works by steam or water power. 
Repeated heatings not unfrequently transpose the con- 
verted steel into its original state of iron. 

Cast-steel is produced by melting blister-steel in cruci- 
bles, which is done after the manner of the brass-founder, 
in a common-air furnace. The mouth of the crucible is 
covered ; the fuel used is coke. The metal, when melted, 
is poured into a mould, and acquires the name of ** ingot 

Sheet-steel is produced by being rolled between re- 
volving cylinders of metal. 

Hand-drawn, means rods which have been produced by 
manual labour, in opposition to those formed by the tilt 
hammer. — W. C. A.]

[After the weaving of woollen cloth, the small fibres 
of the wool of which it is made are raised by means of 
teazle heads, or wire brushes; as a consequence, these 
fibres present irregularities in their several lengths, to 
reduce which to an equal or uniform surface, shears were 
formerly employed. These have been superseded by the 
application of a spiral cutting cylinder, which, being 
fitted with the necessary cutting edges, and revolving 
rapidly in contact with the cloth to be cut, and which 
is drawn on a ledge, speedily imparts to it the requisite 
uniformity of surface. — W. C. A.]

[The use of a ripping-saw is to separate the fibres of 
timber by eroding a portion of the fibre itself, to pre» 
serve an even way, and as an alternative to splitting. 
The crosscut-saw separates the fibre by a cut trans- 
versely, and effects more neatly and truly, and with less 
waste, what might be done with an axe; it cuts logs 
into shorter lengths, as the pit-saw slits logs into boards. 

The tooth of a ripping-saw is more or less hooked, that 
of the pit-saw being shaped something like the upper 
mandible of a parrot; whilst the tooth of the crosscut- 
saw returns from its point or apex at an equal angle on 


L. M. N. O. 18 TO 20, & 25 to 27 ; 0. 9, & P. 3 to 29, 


both sides of a line at right angles to the edge of the 
blade; conseqiiently the ripping-saw bites in the down- 
•troke only, whilst the crosscut-saw can cut both ways; 
and it does so when worked at both ends, as in cutting 
logs of large sizes. 

The saw blade is commonly thicker at the serrated 
edge than at the back; both that it may not be unneces- 
ttrily heavy, and that it may not bind in the cut or the 
k»f (the ripping-saw makes a cut, the crosscut-saw a 
kerf), though this latter object \b more fully provided for 
by the setting of the saw; the setting being the bending 
outward of eveiy tooth alternately on one side and on 
the other, to such an extent as the nature and condition 
of the wood, in respect of wooUiness and wetness, or their 
oppoeitea, may render a wider or a narrower way necessary 
or sufficient for the free passage of the blade along the 
cut or through the kerf. 

Tenon-saws are crosscut-saws mainly, and as their 
name imports, for cutting in the shoulders to tenons. 
But these are shallow cuts, and requiring to be made 
with neatness, the blade is made rigid by a back which is 
commonly of brass. Narrow-bladed saws, for cutting in 
curved lines, are made thicker at the edge, and thinner 
at the back, and are not set. — ^W. H.]

Needles, in every stage of their manufacture, from the 
wire of cast steel to the finished article. 

The exhibitors, being the drawers of card and other 
wire, a process which originated with their ancestors, a 
century ago, Mr. Huntsman, of Attercliffe, who first 
refined carbonated iron, and which has been a source of 
great wealth, not only in the manufacture of cast steel, 
but in the great variety of articles of cutlery for which 
Sheffield is so celebrated, suggested to them that it 
would be mutually advantageous if they oovdd succeed in 
drawing cast steel made from his carbonated iron. The 
suggestion was adopted, the attempt was made, and the 
cast steel and the "wvre made from it are now articles 
of very extensive exportation. 

Specimens numbered in the order of manufiBtcture : — 

Wire: 1, cut double length of a needle; 2, straight- 
ened ; 3, pointed at each end ; 4, grooved, for two

Needles: 6, threaded; 7, filed on the sides; 8, filed 
on the heads ; 9, broken in two ; 10, drilled in the

42. Particles of cast steel, taken from pipes used in con- 
veying away the dust occasioned in grinding needles on 
dry stones, and which would, if allowed to float in the 
air, be inhaled by the grinders, thereby causing a com- 
plaint until lately very common, and hitherto incurable. 

[About twelve or fifteen years ago, several methods were 
tried to remedy this, but they did not effectually succeed 
untU a powerful fan, as represented in the plan hanging 
on the boards at the end of the counter, was put up, on 
which is shown a grinder at work, and the blaze of fire 
arising from the stone in the act of pointing, with the 
fan underneath, drawing the dust and particles of steel 
down the pipe, and leaving the atmosphere of the room 
perfectly clear and free from all injurious effects; so that 
dry grinders have now the chance of living as long as 
other men; without this apparatus they cannot now be 
induced to work; it is therefore imiversally adopted.]

[Tlie Txtility of tbe railway buffer consists in its 
tendency to counteract the effects of the shock which 
Aiises firom the stoppage of a railway train on the line. 

The momentum of the stopping body is dissipated 
by the application of an elastic medium, which opposes 
some renstazioe to the body which gives the blow. In 
the present instance, a steel spring is used, which is 
encloeed in a cylinder having a piston with a correspond- 
ing end stuffed and covered with leather works in it. 
The blow drives back this plimger against the spring, 
which to a certain extent resists, and thereby dissipates 
the effects of the collision. — ^W. C. A.]

[The rich dead gold-like colour given to brass work, 
and which haa be^n introduced within the last thirty 
years, waa discovered as the result of an accident. The 
work is first "scaled " (or roughly cleansed) by immersion 
in a weak solution of acid, it is then what is technically 
called "fezzed," viz., the work passed through a stronger 
solution ; " deadening," follows, and this is effected by 
means also of acid, but of such a degree of strength 
that the action on the metal though recognisable is not 
of a violent kind; attention is necessary to this point, 
otherwise the work when finished wLU present a mottled 

appearance ; it is now dried out in saw-duBt, and is then 
passed through acid of ordinary strength and dipped into 
water, of which there should always be an abundance si f^ 
hand, until the acid be removed. The bright parts on 
the metal are produced by burnishing; gall is used in 
connection with the steel burnishers to prevent their 
scratching, and the article to be burnished is from time ' ' 
to time plunged into argol and water. When finished ^ 
from the '^burnisher," it is dried out in boxwood 
dust, and then lacquered. — W. C. A.]

[Fire irons are produced by fogging out of square bars 
of iron ; the swells and other ornamental parts are formed 
by means of "swages," a sort of mould, one portion of 
which is placed on the anvil, while the other is held by a. 
" willow twist*' in the hand, and struck with a hammer 
until the form desired is arrived at; certain parts are then 
filed ; the round portions are turned in a lathe. The 
articles are case-hardened by laying them in. an iroa 
box, and covering them with animal charcoal, formed of 
burnt leather, hoofs, &c. ; the whole is subjected to the 
operation of a fire or stove until heated to a uniform red 
heat ; the box and its contents are thereafter takan out and 
plunged into water. Polishing succeeds, which is- done byr 
holding tlie article against a wheel, to the circumference 
of which emery is attached by means of glue ; another 
wheel or "bob," with finer emery, gives a higher d^ree 
of finish, and the final and brilliant polish is given by 
hand -friction with powdered iron-stone. The more highly 

' wrought qualities, in which squares, angles, or cuttings 
are introduced, are, after filing, finialied on a soft-metal 
wheel ; the twisted varieties are produced by the forger, 
who, when the metal is heated, twists it into a screw or 
spiral ; the pans of the shovels, &c., are formed by the 
stamp, and perforated by the press; the ornaments and 
studs are produced also by the stamp; they are afterwards 
ground and polished on a soft-metal wheel ; and handles 

' of China, glass, bronze, pearl, Ac, are occasionally intro- 
duced.— W. C. A.]

[Brass is a composite metal, its base being copper, the 
addition of zinc, in various proportions, transforming it 
into a yellow metal. It is very ductfle, and is capable of 
being drawn into wire, flattened, or laminated into sheets, 
the latter operation being effected by means of rolls, which 
are propelled by machinery. It is in this state that it is 
used by stamped brass-founders. Stamped brass-foundry is

[In the yearly consumption of material arising from 
the manufscture of covered buttons in a single factory, 
the subjoined quantities of the various textile and metallic 
are used. In the works, 400 individuals are 
I; they are principally women, assisted by chil- 
dren, skilled workmen being employed to correct the 
tools and construct the machines. In 1850, were con- 
sumed as follows: —

mixtures of copper and plated metal. 
In light steel toys, viz., buttons, clasps, and 
fatftenings for ladies' dresses, were consumed 
upwards of 5 tons of sheet steel. 

V^Tien the cutting-out of the j)arts is performed by band, 
one-third of the material goes to w^aste, o\s'ing to the 
circular f«.>rm of all parts of the button. In this case, 
buwever, it is performed by machinery, which effects a 
vtrr great saving of material. Fifteen machines are em- 
ployed. They are automatic, and work well. — W. C. A.]

[The light steel toy -trade, which includes buttons, clniJj.s, 
fastenings, brooches, &c., and which has been revived with 

profit within the last few years, is entitled to a brief note. 
The articles are cut out from sheet steel; they are curved 
by a stamp, and perforated by small tools fitted into a 
press; the small eyes and fittings for attaching pins are 
soldered on; they are case-hardened, and tempered in oil, 
the reflecting surfaces being cut into ornamental arrange- 
ments by soft metal wheels with emery and oil. They 
are next £astened on a revolving table, and a hard brush 
with emery upon it, is worked in a horizontal direction : 
a finer d^pree of polish is given with a softer brush and 
h'on-stone powder; final brilliancy is given by putty 
powder and the palm of the hand. The cutting of these 
surfaces is a matter of taste, and depends much upon 
the art of the workman. — ^W. C. A.]

[Real stone buttons are formed, as their names indicate, 
frx>m natural substances^ cut and polished by the ordinary 
process of the lapidary. They are drilled with copper 
tools, revolving rapidly in a lathe fitted for the purpose, 
and the tool from time to time touched with emery and 
oil. Fancy glass buttons are made by " pinching." The 
glass is heated. A pair of plyer-like instruments, with the 
fonn of the button sunk in intaglio, is used to give the 
form, and the process consists in introducing the melted 
glass, and preying the two parts together, when a button 
is produced. In some cases the eye is introduced into the 
interior of the glass at the time the button is made; in 
othere, a hole is pinched in the button, the eye introduced, 
and rivetted with a small collar on the surface, which adds 
to the ornamental appearance of the fastening. Other 
varieties of glass buttons are made by taking sheets of 
coloured glass, the back of which has been '* quickened" 
(coated with lead), in the manner of silvering, cutting it 
into small squares, equal to the diameter of the button; 
the comers are taken off" by clipj)ing. The back of this 
vai'ioty is formed of metal, cut out in the manner of 
"blank.-?," to which the eye is soldered by hai'd solder; 
the gl{\fis is heated, the "quickening" melted, the inetiU 
back also being tinned and lieutcd, the two pai-ts ai*c place<l 
together, and a jimctiou is efiected by the ordinary adhe- 
sive ])roperties of the solder. The button is finished by 
grintling the edges, surfaces, &c., and likecuttings are given 
by the ordiuiU-y glass cutting and polishing process. GloRti 
rosettes, for saddling puq>08es, are produced in the same 
way. The two colours ai*e given by cutting through the 
coating of coloured glass to the colourless flint glass, 
which forms the foundation. — W. C. A.]

[The old method of gilding is distinguished from the 
electro process, by the gold used in the operation being 
reduced to an amalgam by means of mercury, which 
readily imites with the gold, and forms' the gilding mix- 
ture. The buttons to be gilt are placed in a pan, some 
of the amalgam introduced, and sufficient nitric acid 
being sprinkled upon them in order to remove any extra 
oxidation; the acid, and lastly the amalgam, is diffused 
over the whole of the metal to be gilt, and the fumes of 
the mercury are evaporated by heat. — W. C. A.]

[In thia manufacture, sheets of iron, of the proper tbick- 
ntes, are cut across by a pair of cutting edges which nra 
»et in motion by macbiDerj; the breadth of these atrip* 
is etjuivolent to the length of the nails to be produced 
from them; the atrip, for the convenience of turning, 
is fastened into a pur of grips attached to a wood shank, 
etsting, when in use, upon a support immediately behind 
the workmen. The nail machine consists, essentially, of 
a pair of outting-chiseU or edgea, which work perpen- 
dicularly, parallel to each other; a gauge to detoruiin* 
the breailth of nail; a pair of grips, into whioh at the 
time the wedge of iron fiiils, and where it ia firmly held, 
until the small horicontat hammer strikea it and produce* 
the bead, when it is dropped into a boi beneath. Btad*

that is to say, a deficiency in the paralleliam of th* 
cutting-eiige produces the head, and prepares for tba 
head of the next brad to be cut there^m. Glaaiers'

points them; he next reverses the ends and effects the 
same result; they are then cut in two, flattened on the 
end, and eye-pimched either by children or machinery; 
the roughness is removed, the eye smoothed by filing. 
They are then tempered in quantities, and polished by 
being gathered together and made to traverse a horizontal 
hearth or table, some abrasive substance lubricated with 
oil being introduced amongst them : scouring, winnowing, 
and sorting then follow. — W. C. A.]

Specimens of iron wire in various sizes. 

[In pin-making the wire is brass (a compound of copper 
and zinc) : it is reduced by the ordinary process of wire- 
drawing to the requisite thickness ; in this process it is 
necessarily curved. To remove this it is re-wound, and 
pulled through between a number of pins arranged 
at the draw, or straightening bench; it is then cut 
into convenient lengths for removal, and finally reduced 
to just such a length as will make two pins. The pointing 
is done upon steel mills (revolving wheels), the circum- 
ference of which LB cut with teeth, the one fine, the other 
coarse. Thirty or forty lengths are picked up at onoe, 
and, as in needle-making, the cast of hand given by the 
workman makes them revolve, and the whole are pointed 
at once ; the same operation is performed with the 
other end. The process of heading is next effected as 
follows: a number of the pointed wires, now cut in two, 
are placed in the feeder of the machine; one drops in, 
\& firmly seized, and, by means of a pair of dies, a portion 
of the metal is forced up into a small bulb, thus, =^ ; 
by a beautifully simple and automatic arrangement, it is 
passed into another, when a small horizontal hammer 
gives it a sharp tap, which completes the head. The white 
colour is produced by boiling in a solution of cream of

The casting of a bronae statue may thiui be described ; 
the core is made up of brick-work and clay until a rude 
repreaentatioo of the intended work is made; upon this 
the sculptor models, in wax, of the thickness intended for 
the metal, all the details, such as the features, drapery, 
&c. ; when this is completed, it is coated with loam of 
very thin consistency, then follow repeated solid coatings 
of clay, &c., until a shell of sufficient strength to bear 
the pressure of the melted metal is formed; the whole is 
then bound together, heat is applied, the wax is melted 
out, and a space thereby left for the introduction of 
the metal; suitable ruunera are made, aud yents to 
allow the free escape of ur. The metal is melted in 
reverberating furnaces, and, when in a proper condition, 
the plug is witbdiBWB, and the mould filled. After being 
allowed to remain until coo], it is opened, the roughness 
cleansed off, and the statue is completed. The peculiar 
tinge of the hronie la adiuired by eiposure to the 

A bronze of nearly the same tinge is given to brass by 
immemioQ in a mixture of spirits of salt and arsenic ; the 
metal is to be heated previous to this; the article is there- 
after brushed with black lead, and, after being again 
heated, is coated with n lacquer, composed of lac and 
spirits of wine, with a little yellow colouring matter; 
the shade of antiquity is thus imparted in a few minutes. 

The eetablishment of the exhibitors is one of the oldest 
in the trade in Birmingbam ; it has been in existence 
upwards of 50 year«; it was one of the earliest to recog- 
nise the importance of the union of art with manufactures. 
For this, the skill of Flaxman and Chantrey was called 
into requisition; artists, celebrated for their eklll in archi-

the erection of machinery. Almost all the small wares of 
the dif<tnct are made by workmen, who imdertake, each 
ooe in his particular line, to execute orders received by 
the merchants and agents settled in the town. The pro- 
fitable performance of their contracts, however, calls for 
the employment of a cheaper kind of power than is at the 
command of men who, like these workmen, have little or 
DO c^tal; and this course of business has opened a 
channel for the employment of money in the town, in a 
VMumer which is found to be profitable to those who en- 
l^ace in it, and advantageous to the small manufacturer. 
The plan alluded to is this: a building, containing a 
l^rest number of rooms of various sizes, is furnished with 
& rteam-engine, working shafts from which are placed in 
esch apartment^ or workshop, which is likewise furnished 
with a lathe, benches, and such other conveniences as 
are raited to the various branches of manufacture for 
which the rooms are likely to be needed. When a 
workman has received an order for the supply of such a 
quantity of goods as will occupy him a week, or a month, 
or any other given time, for their completion, he hires 
ooe or more of these rooms, of sizes and with conveni- 
raecM !$uited to his particular wants, stipulating for the 
a<e of a certain amount of steam-power. He thus realizes 
all the advantage that would accompany the possession 
(4 a steam-engine; and as the buildings thus fitted up 
are nnmerons, competition on the part of their owners 
hM brought down the chax^ for the accommodation 
tbev oiler to the lowest figure that will ensure to them 
the ordinary rate of profit on the capital employed. 

At the Mune time as this peculiarity exists in this 
great metal mart, it must be understood that there are 
•ome most extesisive establishments from which many of 
the largest contributions to the Exhibition have been 
received, that contain within their own premises all the 
elements of production.

[The or-molu of the brass-founder, popularly known 
as an imitation of red gold, is extensively used by the 
French workers in metals. It is generally found in com- 
bination with grate and stove work. It is composed of a 
greater proportion of copper and less zinc than ordinary 
brass, is cleaned readily by means of acid, and is burnished 
with facility. To give this material the rich appearance, 
it is not unfrequently brightened up after " dipping " (that 
is, cleaning in acid), by means of a scratch brush (a brush 
made of fine brass wire), the action of which helps to pro- 
duce a very brilliant gold-like surface. It is protected 
from tarnish by the application of lacquer. — ^W. C. A.]

by solder to a foundation of cast brass or iron. Beading 
is formed out of sheet metal, and is drawn through a 
steel hole in the same manner as a tube, but with a plug 
introduced, for the purpose of keeping it in shape ; the 
sprigs by whicli it is uttiiched are inserted at the time 
when the solder is applied to fill up the back. The solid

[Bell and candlestick founding and making are under- 
stood, in the Birmingham trade, to go together. The 
operation of casting may be similar, but the composition 
of the two metals is exceedingly different, the one being 
hard, the other pliable and ductile. Bell-metal, though 
composed of two of the softest of metals, viz., copper and 
tin, when united in the proportion of four to one, forms a 
mixture easily broken and capable of producing sound. 
Small bells are cast in sand, those of a lai^e size are pro- 
duced in loam. 

Candlesticks are cast in sand, and made hollow by 
the introduction into the mould of what is called ''a 
core," viz., a piece of sand corresponding in size to the 
hollow of the pillar. Upon his skill in making this, in 
such a manner as to produce uniform thickness of metal 
throughout, depends the success of the workman ; the 
metal must also be of a proper temperature, or the casting 
is rendered useless by the presence of flaws. Candlesticks 
are finished by being turned, and polished by friction 
when in a state of motion in the lathe ; the bottoms, when 
round, are also turned; when square, they are filed and 
polished. The composition of the metal, in this case, is 
copper und zinc, in the proportion of 16 oimcee of the 
former to 8 ounces of the latter. 

Lookhead's patent glass is produced by a roller having, 
on its circumference, projections corresponding to the 
apertures intended, which is made to traverse the surface 
of the glass ; when in a molten state, an indentation is 
made for every projection, and the whole is finished by 
grinding, which removes the extra glass and relieves the 
apertures. It is useful for purposes of ventilation. —

[Rolled metal (brass) is produced by melting the metal 
to be rolled in clay crucibles; when sufficiently melted, 
mixed, and fluxed, it is poured into iron ingots, &c., 
which have been previously smeared with oil. After this, 
the "strip" is passed into the hands of the roller, who 
proceeds to what is technically called ''break it down;" 
then follows the process of reduction. The huge iron 
rollers used in the operation are fitted with screws or 
appliances for bringing their surfaces in closer contact. 
The metal is annealed in muffles, scaled, and pickled 
(cleaned and washed in an acid solution), and in certain 
cases where brightness is necessary, it is finished by 
being passed through bright-rolls. — W. C. A.]

[The metal of which brass wire is formed \b cast in 
strips and rolled to the required thickness; it is th<^ 
''slit" into square rods of metal by the operation of 
cylindrical rollers ; the larger sizes of wire have corners 
taken off by being passed through a pair of rolls ; the 
smaller sizes are at once passed through steel draw- 

Brass or other tubes are formed from rolled metal, 
which is cut to the required breadth by mesDS of re- 
volving discs ; in the large sizes of tubes, the metal is 
partially curved in its length by means of a pair of 
rolls ; when in this condition, it is passed through a steel 
hole or a die, a plug being held in such a position as 
allows the metal to pass between it and the interior of 
the hole. Oil is used to lubricate the metal; the motion 
is communicated by power, the drawing apparatus being 
a pair of huge nippers, which holds the brass, and is 
attached to a chain which revolves around a windlass or 
cylinder. The tube, in its unsoldered state, is annealed, 
bound around at intervals of a few inches with iron 
wire, and solder and borax applied along the seam. The 
operation of soldering is completed by passing the tube 
through an air stove heated with " cokes" or "breeze," 
which melts the solder and unites the two edges of the 
metal, and forms a perfect tube; it is then immersed in a 
solution of sulphuric acid to remove the scaly deposit on 
its surface, the wire and extra solder having been pre- 
viously removed; it is then drawn through a "finishing 
hole plate," when the tube is completed. 

Mandril drawn tubes, as the name indicates, Bxe drawn 
upon a very accurately turned steel mandiil ; by this 
means, the internal diameter is rendered smooth; the 
tube formed by this process is well fitted for telescopes, 
syringes, small pump-cylinders, &c. 

Brass solder is composed of almost equal quantities of 
copper and zinc; its properties should be that of melting 
at such a temperature as will allow the article to be 
soldered to be sufficiently heated, but yet some degrees 
from melting point. Solder is always used in connection 
with borax, the cleansing properties of which appears to 
facilitate the fusion of the metal. — W. C. A.]

[In these specimens, the oxidated or scaly appearance 
of the metal, when undergoing the process of manufacture, 
will readily be detected; the parts at which the soldering 
has been also made, are shown by the brightness of the 
Mam. Tlie glassy appearance at this part, when un- 
etcaosed, arises from the use of the borax, which is em- 
plojed to protect that portion of the brass to be soldered, 
from becoming dirty ; it also acts as a flux, facilitating 
the running of the solder. Immersion in weak nitric 
•cid effectually removes the scales, after which various 
ftrengths of tlie same acid are used until the articles are 
eoiirely cleansed; they are finally dried out in box saw- 
doit, and burnished. — W. C. A.]

[The articles here exliibited illustrate the heavy steel 
"toy" tratle of Birmingham. The manufacture of the 
axe u*«od by the backwoodsman, of the hoe used in the 
a:;ric«ilture of the tropics, the pick used by the Caffirs of 
the Cape, and the harpoon of the whale-fiahcr, gives em- 

ployment to many artizans in its vicinity. In order to 
convey a general idea of the process by which these 
articles are ** got up," the manufacture of an ordinary 
axe may be selected. A piece of iron is taken, and 
after being heated, is doubled over a piece of steel cor- 
responding in form to the futvu'e eye which is to hold 
the shank; it is not then welded together. A small 
piece of steel which is intended to form the future cutting 
edge, is heated along with the iron back to a welding 
heat, and is passed under a tilt-hammer (that is, a large 
hammer driven by steam or water), which speedily 
flattens it out: it is then exposed to another heat, and 
the eye is completed with the small hammer. The 
superfluous iron or steel is removed at the edge by a 
pair of laige scissors. The process of hardening and 
tempering follow; the grinding is performed on stones, 
which cuts away the iron and discloses the steel edge. 
The "glazing" on emery "bobs" or wheels succeeds, and 
the polishing is effected by means of oil and emery on a 
similar tool. Considerable improvement in appearance 
is imparted by the use of a blue varnish which is applied 
to the axe, and drying in a small stove. "Toy" is a 
technical term applied to an anvil, a hammer, and various 
incongruous objects which are comprised under the 
"heavy steel trade," readily imderstood by the initiated.

[Tlie application of enamel for the protection of water- 
cisterns, pipes, &c., from oxidation, and for the liiiin;^ of 
cooking utensils, is of comparatively recent date. The 
various materials of which the coating is composed (silex 
being the principal) are reduced to a fluid state: the 
article to be coated is dipped in the mass; a portion of 
the fluid adheres; it ia then subjected to the heat of a 
muffle, and the whole becomes vitrified or reduced into 
a glassy covering, affording an excellent defence against 
oxidation, and a substitute for the protection afforded by 
tinning. — "W. C. A.]

mother-of-pearl dress buttons, slides, and ornaments for 
dresses, &c. 

[Pearl-button making is thus practised : The blanks are 
cut out of the shell by means of a small revolving steel 
tube, the edge of which is toothed as a saw; after which 
^ej 91^ flatted, or reduced in thickness, by splitting, which 
is aided by the laminar structure of the shell. At this 
stage, being held in a spring chuck, they are finished on 
both sides by means of a sm^ tool : the drilling is efiected 
by the revolution of a sharp steel instrument, which acts 
with great rapidity. Ornamental cuttings are produced 
by means of small revolving cutters, and the final brilliant 
polish is given by the friction of rotten-stone and soft- 
soap, upon a revolving bench. — W. C. A.*)

edge-tools. Specimens of skates. 

[Saws are formed from plates of sheet steel, and are 
toothed not by hand but by means of a press and tools. 
Circular saws have the advantage of being divided in their 
teeth very accurately by means of a division plate; this 
prevents irregularity of size, and imparts smoothness and 
uniformity of action. The larger sizes of circular saws 
are made in segments, and connected together by means 

of dovetails. All saws are hardened and tempered in oil ; 
their irregularities are removed by hammering on blocks, 
and they are equalized by grinding. The several forma 
of teeth do not, as the casual observer may imagine, de- 
pend upon taste, but are those best fitted for cutting 
through the particular section, quality, or hardness of the 
material to be cut. The " set " of the saw consists in 
inclining the teeth at the particular angle known to be 
the best to facilitate the exit of the saw-dust, and thereby 
allow the saw to operate more freely. Iron bars, shaft- 
ings, &c., are cut to length by a steel circular saw, in its 
soft state, the iron to be cut being presented to the saw 
red hot ; the saw rotates at a prodigious rate, and is kept 
in cutting condition, or cool, by its lower edge being im- 
mersed in water. A bar, two inches in diameter, is cut 
through in a few seconds. — W. C. A.]

than three hours, to be in the proportion of 1 part to 100 
of air, and when in such condition the air is decidedly 
injurious to health. The removal of the products of 
combustion, therefore, at once into the external air, 
should always be provided for. The idea of ventilating 
gas-burners originated with Professor Faraday. — S. C]

Patent ventilating open fire-place, with chimney-glass 
and ornaments ; the cliimney -piece and frame, of glass, 
are made of black marble in the Louis Quatorze style ; the 
room is ventilated by means of an aperture behind the 
top ornament of the glass frame; from this aperturo a 
pipe conveys the vitiated air of the room iuto a chamber 
at the back and sides of the grate, from whence it passes 
into the chimney. The panels, or front of the fire-place, 
are made of beaten copper, highly polished. 

In order to ensure nealth and comfort in the heating 
of an apartment, various conditions are required: 1st. 
That the grate which warms the apartment (from 50 to 
65 degrees being the most a<lvantageous temperature) 
should produce a perfect ventilation or change of air, 
both in the upper and lower part of the room. To ob- 
tain this, the action of the heat and of the air for ven- 
tilation must be so combined as to be dependent one upon 
the other, and to act together. 

It is also essential to health that the air should be 
perfectly free from all smell, smoke, and gas, arising 
from the fuel. To obtain this, the bars of the grate 
must not project beyond the opening of the fire-place, 
and that opening should be smaller than the sectional 
diameter of the chimney; by which means any chimney, 
however defective in construction, will be prevented from 

2nd. It is necessary that the heat should be equably 
dispersed throughout the apartment, so that there should 
be no draughts. For this purpose the air should be 

allowed to escape from the room not only up the chimney 
from the lower part of the room, but also from the upper 
part, through another opening leading to the chimney, 
thereby causing free circulation of the air throughout 
the whole of the apartment. 

In order that the a|>artment may be sufficiently heated, 
it is not necessary with these stoves to make up a large 
fire, by burning a large quantity of fuel, but the in- 
tensity of the fire should be incr^sed by the ajjplicatiou 
of a draught-plate (made of glass or wire-gauze) to the 
opening; a pipe is also placed in the chiumey, and com- 
uumiaites with the ventilating or hot-air chamber, at 
one end, and with the upper part of the apartment at 
the other, in order to thi'ow out warm air into the up|)er 
part of the room. 

On the other hand, in order that the apartment should 
not be overheated, a double-action valve is placed at the 
lower ])art of the fire-place, and communicates with the 
pipe in the chimney; by this means the opening, instead 
of throwing out wann air, is made to draw off the hot 
and vitiated air from the upper i>art of the room when 

To ensure safety, by preventing a chimney from taking 
fire, care should be taken that the smoke be not allowed 
to Ix^come condensed in the chimney : to prevent which, 
the opening should not be too high, so that the air to 
sup]>ort combustion may }>e well heated before ascending 
the chimney and mixing with the smoke : if the opening 
be too liigh, the air would enter at too gn^t a distance 
from the fire to become sufficiently warmed, and conse- 
quently the smoke would condense and form soot. 

The accumulation of soot at the sides and back of the 
register cannot take place in the improved system, as is 
often the case in the ordinary construction of a grate. 
Also, in the old plan, the flame is allowed to act upon 
the sides of the chimney to which the soot adheres; but 
in the improveil system the fire is contained in an iron 
case, from three to four feet high, which does not t^uch 
the chimney ; thus leaving a hollow sjiace outside for the 
reception of the soot (if any is fonned), and removing it 
from the part where flame is allowed to exist. 

For the convenience of sweeping the chimney, a small 
door or opening lb provided : by this means the chimneys 
are better swept, and the inconvenience of having the 
sweeps and soot-bags in the apartment is avoided. 

A considerable ec<^nomy is obtained by thoroughly 
heating an apartment with the least possible expenditure 
of fuel. For this purpose there must be a due pro- 
portion between the size of the outlet for the smoke from 
the case and the area of the grate, and, consequently, of 
the (quantity of fuel consumed. 

Cleanluiess is insured by the employment of a moveable 
ash-pan, projecting a considerable distance from the fire, 
and independent of the fender. 

The improve<l grates and fire-places may be made of 
various forms and designs, so as to accord with the 
chimney-piece and other architcctmral embellishments of 
the apartment, on the well-known principle that the 
frame for an object should be made to form, at the same 
time, an ornament, thus making a harmonious whole. 

Ventilating open fire-places, made of porcelain, in the 
form of a pedestal, to be placed in a recess under a 
chimney, and having the panels made of ornamental

[The solid masses of ice brought to England from 
America, are obtained from freshwater lakes. The 
Wenham Lake in the State of Massachusetts, is not far 
from Renton, and is situated in a hilly district. A com- 
plete ice-cutting establishment exists at this lake, and 
when the ice is a foot thick it is cut by a peculiar plough, 
drawn by a horse. The blocks are cut with an ice-s&w, 
drawn to the ice-store, and for a time kept there. 15,000 
or 20,000 tons of ice can be stored at one time in this 
repcMiitory, whence it is despatched by rail to the market. 
About 400 tons of ice in a day are frequently carried 
away. The annual consumption is enormous. — R. E.]

pipe. Oil is then poured upon the water to fill the pipe 
another third. The matter drops through the oil into 
the water in the tube, where it is freed of any oily 
particles it may have gathered in its passage through 
the oil, and finally deposits itself in or upon the water

Patent Admiralty regulatiion lights: bright light at the 
foremast head, green light on the starboard aide, nd 
light ou the port side, Kn be used when under weigh. 
T^e form of these lights may be seen by the annexed 

k Sou' PUent Adalnllr B^iUaliBa Llgbu. 

A common bright light, to be used by all veaaels at 
anchor. Model of a steam-Teasel, showing how then 
lights are placed. The cut on the opposite page repre 
sents a steamer with the regulation lights. It ahows th< 
proper position for these lights, in order to obviate the 
confusion likely to arise from the curving of the rayi of 
light over the bows of the vessel. 

The fallowing are the Admiralty Begulatioas which 
have been adopted since 1840 by all maritime nationi : — 

A bright light at the foremast head, green light on the 
■tarboard side, red light on the port side — to be used 
when under weigh. A common bright light, to be used 
bv all vessels at anchor. The green and red ligbta are so 
plooed at the side of the vessel that the nys of the lamps 
cannot cross the bowi. In this maimer it is easy to 
ascertain the position and the couise of the vane!, and to 
avoid collieion with her, since the coloured lights givethi 
most certain indication sa to whether she i* in the star 
board or larboard tack.

[The locks on thia principle, for ordinary purposes, 
have each aiz fieparate and distinct moveable tumblers and 
a detector. If a surreptitious attempt be made to open 
any one, immediate notice is given by the detector on the 
next application of the proper key. The fire-proof safes 
are matle of strong wrought iron, lined with hard steel 
plates, and the chambers all round are filled with non- 
conductors of heat.]

Door-lock keys in different stages of manufacture. 
fSeveral manufacturers are exclusively occupied in 

making keys, in their rough state. The majority are pro- 
duced by swages or points; superior qualities are from 
time to time cast of malleable iron and annealed. They 
are purchased by the lock-makers, and cut to suit the 
several wards in the locks which they are intended for. — 
W. C. A.] 

649 The Patent Pointed Screw Company, 

Wolverhampton — Manufacturers. 
Patent-pointed screws, east out of malleable iron, 
which can be driven into wood, without boring holes. 

[The peculiarity of these screws is in their mode of 
production. Other screws are formed from iron wire, 
the head being forced up, and the screw cut in a lathe 
in use for the purpose; these are cast in sand, and are 
singular, from their being so, and from the comparative 
sharpness in the threads, though they are somewhat 
inferior to those cut by ordinary method. — W. C. A.]

Bloxwich, Willenhall, Melsall, and other hamlets scattered 
around; in addition to this, it supports no small number 
of persons, known as middle-men, and factors, who buy
