The Diiy Goods Fiuur ix New
York. Eor several days a desperate
fight has been going on between Stewart
and Claflin, the ki:igs of the dry goods
market. Stewart started it by ''marking
down" below Clailiu's figures. Claflin
followed suit; Stewart cut down again;
th&x Claflin ; then Stewart; then Claflin
again ; theu Stewart ouce more, and so
l he war has gone on for a week. Dry
goods men tell me ihcy never saw the
market so excited as it is by this war
between the two great houses. Both
parties are sellingat prices that are abso
lutely ruinous. '1 rade was so disturbed
by their op erations that the agents of the
different mills held a meeting and decid
ed not to sell to any one except at a cer
tain fixed price. Stewart had been sell
ing some liues far below the ageuts' jui
ces (losing heavily of course,) and they
thought to steady the market by giving
notice that they would not sell to any
man who attempted to undersell them.
Stewart coutiuues his "bear" operations,
however, and the excitement is rising to
u fever, lie has demoralized the marfc-

IN presenting the claims of this NEW KNIT
TING MACHINE to popular favor, we aim
at no more than a brief and candid statement of
its actoal merit. We confidently claim that the
CLIMAX KNITTER is superior to all other ma
chinos in the follwiug respects :
.1. Simplicity of construction and operation.
2. Completeness and excellence of work.
3. Convenience of shape, size and weight ef
4. Durability of machine. i
5. Rapidity of work.
6. Cheapness.
It is so simple in its construction and in its
workings, that less than half the time is required
tt lenrn to knit on it than on others. With It th
children of the household can do all the knitting.
It is made entirely of iron and steel. A man's
sock can be made in thirty minute. It makes
tho regular old old-fashioned knitting needle
stitch or loop, (with several others if -desired) ;
turns the heel, making it of as good shape as by
hand, without any sewing ; narrows or widens,
at the pleasure of the operator, and makes a per
fect toe. Any article tbat can be knit by hand,
can be manufactured on this machine.
Persons who wish to. see the machine in opera
tion, are requested tc hll on the agent in this city.
