Respectfully inform their friends and the public generally that they have greatly en-
larged their manufacturing establishment, and have so increased their facilities as to
enable them to execute all orders with promptness and in superior style of workmanship
for their justly


Which have given so much satisfaction throughout the Union, as also for their STEAM
POWERS, of various kinds and sizes, both Stationary and portable.

Their Engines are built with all the most superior modern improvements, and for their
excellence of arrangement and design, were awarded the highest premium, a gold medal,
at the last annual exhibition of the Maryland Mechanics' Institute.

Among their PORTABLE ENGINES is one that was expressly gotten up for Planta-
tion and farm purposes, and is emphatically a Locomotive or Portable Engine. It is of
10 horse capacity, and, for compactness, design and workmanship, efficiency, and ease
of travel, is unequalled. The engine, boiler, smoke-stack, governor, and valve are all
mounted on a substantial set of wooden wheels, with tongue attached, ready to hitch
a team of horses to, by which it may be drawn to the woods as the power to saw lum-
ber, to the field or barn to thresh out grain or rice, or for ginning cotton, grinding or
chopping or crushing corn and cob, or for any other economic purpose on the plantation
or farm requiring such power. The smoke-stack is so arranged as to be free from dan-
ger of fire, as no sparks are emitted. The governor and valve regulate speed with a
degree of nicety never before attained. It can be drawn by four or six horses any
where where a loaded wagon can be.

As also, for their GRIST MILLS, of various sizes ; HORSE POWERS, of different
sizes: one of the latter particularly suited to ginning cotton, and highly approved for
such purposes in the South ; besides many other labor-saving machines and implements
of high celebrity.

Since the senior party invented and patented their Portable Circular Saw-Mills they
have made many valuable improvements, which render them perfect in all their details,
and justly entitle them to be considered as among the first labor-saving machines of
the age

A pamphlet and cut containing full descriptions of their Saw-Mills, Engines, and nu-
merous other machinery, prices, &c. will be sent to any gentleman applying for one by

As they have obtained an extension of their patent, they hereby forewarn all persons
from infringing the same.

No assignment of patent right will be legal unless signed by two of the partners.
