Excelsior Brick Machine. We
took occasion to visit the brick yard of
John S. McCallister, one day during the
present week, and while there examined
the new brick machine, the invention of
Mr. McCallister. The machine is of
very simple but ingenious construction,
and for the manufacture of brick is far
superior to anything we have ever seen,
being able to turn out 25,000 brick per
day with a sufficient number of laborers
to off-bear the brick. We were informed
that one of these machines, worked by
four hands, in this city recently, turned
out 12,000 brick in one day. We exam
ined a kiln containing several thousand
of these brick, nicely burned. They were
very regular in size' and smoothness of
surface, neat, well pressed corners, and
were just such brick as a mason delights
to see in fact are far superior in every
way to the ordinary brick made by hand.
The inventor, Mr. John S. 3IcCallister,
of this place, has applied for a patent, as
wo stated some weeks since, which he
will undoubtedly obtain, as nothing like
: it haj ever been invented.. One of the
machines, sold to parties in Salem, on
the first trial, with six hands, made 1,000
brick in 27 minutes. Of course, tbe
purchasers are highly pleased with it.
Another of these machines has been sold
and forwarded to the Dalles, to Mr.
Abrams, one of the contractors on the
U. S. Mint, building at that place. One
of these machines has also been ordered
and completed at this place. The price
of the Excelsior at the factory is 300,
complete, mounted on wheels and ready
for use. Brick can be manufactured by
using one of these machines at nearly
one-half less than the ordinary cost of
molding by hand, and the amount thus
saved would, in a few weeks' work, pay
for a machine in the reduced cost of
hands required to manufacture the brick.
We advise persons in this line of busi
ness to apply at once to J. S. McCallister
& Co. for one of these machines ; full
satisfaction is guaranteed to those desir
ing to purchase.
Returned. Chas. Harper, Esq., has
returned to this city from a protracted
visit to Puget Sound and San Francisco.
In his journeyings he found no place
whose future prospects seemed brighter
than Albany. He has returned satisfied
lo stay, and has brought with him a stock
of new and fashionable goods, which he
is now opening for the inspection of his
..friends and the public generally, in the
building adjoining Mr. John Connor, on

For Washing Clothes. Attention
