will the day arrive
,Wh rirtiie shall be crowned
. With laurels from the skies,
' AjA man for worth be known ?
- Wh en friend with friend shall meet
A travellers to the skies,
And each with welcome greet,
At bound by holier ties ?
A Heaven on earth we may enjoy
"In pure, fraternal love
Our hands and minds for friends employ,
As in bright realms above.
Then why in darkness should we stray,
, In selfishness and sin,
When Christ to heaven has led the way,
And welcomed us within ?
A heavenly foretaste we may have
, QDf that bright spirit home,
Enjoy a bliss we often crave,
While on the earth we roam.

' Alas for the poetry of farminc!
snyg Beecher. All the songs of milk
maids must now oe listened tor iu
the old English poets. The whetting
of the mower's scythe 13 almost over
quite ove on my farm I Instead
of that, one hears the sharp rattle of
the mower, and 6ees the driving man
quite at his ease riding round and
roundthe meadow, for all the wor!d
as if he were out airing! Whereas,
heretofore, two acres would be coo
sidered a large day's work; now, ten
and twelve are easily accomplished.
.Nor is the Contrast less remarka
ble in all the after work. When I
was a boy I was placed in line, with
all the men that could be mustered,
to shake out the hay with forks ; and
after: a few hours all hands were
called out to go over the ground and
turn it. To do this rapidly, and yet
bo the bottom side shall really come
to the top, was no small knack.
Now, a tedder, with one man riding,
will literally do the work of ten men,
and do it far better than the most ex
pert can. Have you ever seen a ted
der? I have now a perfect one. The
grass rolls up behind it and foams, I
wm going to say, like water behind
the wheels of a steamer. The grass
leaps up and whirls as if it were
amazingly tickled with such dealings.
(The result is, that unless the grass
Ois very heavy, and the weather very
bad, you may cut your hay in the
morning and get it in to your baru
before night in far better condition
than it used to be when it required
never less than two, and generally a
part ot three days to cure it.
But 1 have forgotten the horse
rake. Instead of the old-fashioned,
long -handled rake, and the five or six
men pulling "and hauling to get the
grass into winrows, that same fellow,
with th.U same horse, rides his luxu
rious rake, and in a fifth part of the
time formerly required, puts it into
equally good shape. Indeed, if bay
ing has lost its poetry, it has also lost
its drudgery, A man can now man
age, a hundred acres of grass easier
than he formerly could twenty. The
only thing that remains- to be made
easy is pitching on and of! the load.
It is true that horse-forks have been
invented, bdt I have never seen any
that did their work well; and in my
barn, at any rate, . the old work of
pitching and mow-ing remains; and if
you wish to know what fnn is, get on
to the mow, under the slate roof of
my barn, on a hot day, and let Tim
pitch off hay as he will if I give him
the wink, xoa will have to step
lively, and even then, you will often
be seen emerging from heaps of hay
thrown over yon, like a rat from a
bunch of oakum. And then it is so
pleasant, when a man is all a-sweat,
to have his shirt filled with hay seed,
each particular particle of which
- makes believe that it is a flea, and
wiggles and tickles upon every square
inch of yonr body, until you are half
.It is the 2d of July, and my grass
rs all cut, and the last load is rolling
into tha barn while I write. How
sweet it smells! IIow jolly the chil
dren are that have b-en mounted on
the top of the load; and their little
scarlet jackets peep out from their
nests while Tim stands guard and
; nurse. A child that has not ridden
QVp from the meadow to the barn on
. a load of hay, has yet to learn of one
luxury of exultanfcchildhood. What
" care they for jolts, when the whole
-load is a vast and multiplex spring?
The more the wagon jounces the bet-
they like it '. Then come the bars,
leading into the lane with the maples
, on each side. The limbs reach over
and the green leaves kiss the chil
dren over and over again. So would
I, 10 were a green leaf, and not con
. stder myself so green after all. And
so the load rolls slowlv un th !-ui
There is no such thing as momentum
10 an o. .ue is always at a dead
puu ana at me very hardest. But
the children like it! The slower, the
longer is me riae. let tbem take
all the cemfort they can now. By
and by they will be grown up,
and own firtc carriages and roll in
tjje through the streets. Bat there
is many a fair face that rides "in a
ilk-lined coach, with a sad heart,
that would go back if she could, oh
Low Rltdly, to her joyous ride oa the
Th American Watch Factory at
AVu.lt Haiti Massachusetts.
That which brings labor and capital to
gether benefits both the laborer and the cap
italiat. Even in Great Britain where capi
tal acts but too ofcen like a huge tvrant, and
labor is its slave, as in the colleries and great
manufactories, political econamists have still
observed this as a fundamental principle.
How much more, then, must such an institu
tion as the Waltham Watch Factory be re
garded as a blessing to the community.
Here the most perfect of all machinery,
backed by an abundant capital, that sutlers
nothing to remain imperfect for the want of (
means to rectify it, and the most experi
enced and skillful labor, at wages of from
$1 75 to $7 and $3 per day, are combined in
the production of watches, all registered so
as to run in most perfect time, like chronom
eters. So perfect are they that if 'any part
whatever 13 broken or injured, a nevr piece
can at once be supplied. There are now
three of these companies in the United
States, but this one at "Waltham 13 the old
est, and for the last nine or ten years has
been a source of prosperity to the proprie
tors, and still more obviously so the seven
hundred persons employed in the various
departments. The watches thus produced
are so superior in uniformity to any that
are or can be made by hand, that the time
will soon come when we shall cease to im
port all but the very cheapest and common
est sort made, perhaps for show and sale,
but not for sale. Already there is a consid
erable demand for them abroad, notwith
standing their high price, and we hope the
day may not be far distant wheii our city
may be able to boast that this manufacture
is carried on in addition to all the others in
which we now excel.
The building forms three sides of a square.
It is light, airy, wholesome and beautifully
clean and well finished in every one of its
twenty -five distinct apartments. 'Water is
on every floor, and in almost every room,
for drinking and (as well as fifty fire extin
cuishers') as a precaution against fire. The
C7 ' "
building is heated by steam, and in all its
appointments nearly perfect.
All those employed exhibited a degree of
neatness, respectability, and refinement such
as is scarcely to be found elsewhere. The
main-springs are, we believe, bought in Phil
adelphia, and the wire for the hair-springs
is brought on the reel from Europe; but ex
cept these, everything, including the finest
steel tools and machinery, are made on the
premises. One complicated machine, for
cutting one piece of the hard steel, works in
three distinct ways, and cost over a thous
and dollars, though invented by one of the
workmen in the establishment. The screws
used on some parts of these watches are so
fine that to the naked eye, the thread is in
visible. These are sometimes sold separate
Iv to watchmakers. It takes three hundred
thousand of them to make a pound, and the
iron which at first may have been worth two
or three cents, is thus converted into a value
of ?4,000. Such is the beauty, perfection
and value of skilled manulucturs. Te
preparation of the jewels for these watches
forms of itself a most interesting depart
ment. At first they used to be imported
from Europe, where they were made by
hand; but now they are all cut, shaped, pol
ished and drilled in the establishment and by
machinery, far more exactly and 11 11 i for inly
than any made elsewhere in the whole world.
The sapphire and the beryl are used where
the hardest and best stone3 are required.
These are first cut with a wheel of tin, into
which diamond dust has been forced by the
superior hardness of the best steel. This
cuts up the stone as marble is sawn. Then
chipped round like the old flint arrow-heads
ot the Indians, lurtner revolutions, wnn me
aid of diamond dust and proper machinery,
hollow out a little cup, and polish the whole,
of one uniform, exact size. To bore with
the point of a diamond the pivot holes, first
half the way through on one side, and then
from the other side the other halt, till both
meet smoothly in the middle and form a
microscopic tunnel, through the jewel, in
which the pivots may run smootn ana iric-
tionless, is the work which the delicate on
cers ot only two or three ot the Kins em
ployed in the whole establishment, guiacu
by the jeweller's glass, can, with all the aid
of machinery accomplish with sufficient ex
actness. Even then the most accurate tests
and measures for ever hole are used, and
every thousandth part of an inch is carefully
noted against the number ot each watch, in
case they should ever want replacing.
Twenty thousand of these jewels per month
are sometimes used. Brass wheels and steel
cogs have all to be cut with a perfection of
accuracy which nothing but machinery such
as this, "and the most skilled and practiced
workers can insure. Most of the finest work
seems to be done by females, each devoting
her whole time to one process. A single
part of the watch will often involve from
twenty to seventy of these processes. When
it is all doue, the parts are put together,
made to run and regulated. After this it is
all taken to pieces and the brass is all gold
washed by the electrotyping process, and
then put together again. But so accurately
do all the parts and screws fit, that this last
work of putting together seems hardly to
take five minutes.
An Oregon Jol'rxal. Thousands of let
ters are written annually, to parties on
the Pacific Coast, asking for information
concerning that region. The Oregon Cdy
Enterprise, a weekly journal of 32 columns
3 are contemplated was established
by D. C. Ireland in 18GG. for the purpose
of paying special attention to the resources
of Oregon. It is published at Oregon City,
a town of 1200 inhabitants, situated on thrt
Wallamct river, destined to become a
second Lowell, or Lawrence, on account
of its natural water power, which is un
equalled in America. Is but ten miles
from the commercial metropolis of the
State (Portland), 3G miles from the State
Capital (Salem), and but four miles from
Oswego, one of the finest iron regions in the
known world. This Journal costs but S3
per annum, or S2 for six months, and to
any person wanting a knowledge of Ore
gon, it is mvaiuaoie. iry it.
