It having been insinuated by some of the
leading journals that the "Cuba" entered
our harbor merely for the purpose of testing
so called points of international law, and
was not in distress as asserted by her offi
cers, can draw consolation to their souls from
the fact that the coal taken from her Friday

only ten tons, not sufficient indeed for an
eight hour cruise.
Autumn. Our mornings are delightful,
a perfect Elizium, cool, refreshing breezes,
a cloudless sky, and the glorious Autumnal
rosy sunrise. Young j men and young
girls, get up early 1 enjoy these rare gifts
of excellent nature,: it ia sinful to discard
them! nature bountifully presents to you
the rarest and fairest season'; the golden
days of expiring Autumn.
In the sentence of the young animal the
Journal keeps; Judge Cantwell remarked :
'Oh ! shame on Wilmington that she should
have citizens that approve of cowardly as
saults, and who tolerate and associate with
men. who spring from ambush upon un
armed men." This sentence is commended
to those citizens who still possess self-respect.
Others w,ill not regard. ,

Sunday Hosniso. How many pleasant
brcakfaBt tables it looks down upon. No
need to hurry away to office, or ! store, or
counting-room. Fathers come leisurely
down in dressing-gown and 6lippcrs,and sip
their coffee without danger of choking.
They have time to look round and see how
tall the children are - growing, and that
nothing in this world is so beautiful as a
rosy baby fresh from slum ber. Mother too,
has the old girlish smile that comes not often
on a week-day,' for if it does, father has not
time to notice it, and that, perhaps, after
all, is the reason it comes so seldom. It is
pleasant, after eggs and coflce, to sit com
fortably down by the fire, the centre of a
ring of happy faces, and hear the church
bells chime. Time enough vet to go. for
this is the first bell. .
Church bells are not, to my ear, "an im
pertinence." One is a free agent I am
free to go, which I like to do ; you are free
to stay, if you prefer ; though I may think
you make a mistake. I don't say that I
should go every Sunday to hear a man who
was always binding doctrines together like
bundles of dry sticks, and thrusting them at
his yawning hearers. I want to hear a ser
mon that any poor soul who struggles into
church, from any by-lane or alley, can un
derstand, and carry home with him to his
cellar or garret ; not a sermon that comes
on chariot wheels, but afoot, and with a
warm, life-like grasp for every honestaye
and Jit honest hand in tho assembly, de
faulter or Magdalen; lor Who bade you slam
Heaven's gate in their faces f
I want a human, sermon. I don't care
what Melchisedek, or Zerubbabel, or Keren
happuk did, ages ago ; I want to kno w what
lam to do, and I want somebody besides a
theological bookworm to tell me somebody
who is sometimes tempted and tried, and is
not too dignified to own it; somebody like
me, who is always singing and repenting ;
somebody who is glad and sorry, and cries
and laughs, and eats and drinks, and wants
to fight when they are trodden on and
don't That's the minister for me. I don't
want a spiritual abstraction, with stony eyes
and petrified fingers, and no blood to battle
with. What credit is it to him to be pro
per? How can he understand me f Were
there only such ministers in the pulpit, I
wouldn't go' to church either, because my
impatient feet would only beat a tattoo on
the pew floor till service was over ; but thank
God there are ! and while they preach I shall
go and hear them, and come homo better
and happier for having done it
So I pray you don't abolish my Sunday,
whatever you may do with yours. Don't
take away my blessed Sunday breakfast,
when we all have time to love another
Don't take away the Sabbath bells, which I
so love to hear. Don't take away my hu
man minister, whose God is no tyrant, and
is better pleased to see us go smiling home
from church, than bowing our heads like a
bulrush, and groaning back to our dinners,
till all you anti-Sabbatarians are mad to
abolish Sunday and no wonder. j j

Visit to Hart & Bailet's Iron asd Cof
fer Works. Quickly thrusting our; note
book close to the traditional spot where
throbs the fountain of our life current, we sal
lied forth last Thursday afternoon to inspect
this immense establishment At the office,
we whispered gently to the courteous'Hart,
our desire, and in a few moments were safely
under the guidance and direction of the in
telligent and gentlemanly managing i fore
man of the establishment Mr. Thomas L.
Colville. We wended our way through a
gauntlet of old bombs, rusty schrapnel and
grape, and a truly multitudinousand multi
farious collection of," old salt pans," broken
iron, distorted bolts, malformed castings, all
truly better imagined than described. On
our left was a mysterious and somewhat an
tiquated piece ot iron in the form of a cem
etery head stone. This curious piece of
workmanship is about twenty-four inches in
height, eighteen : inches in breadth and
about one inch in thickness. In the centre
is ja medallion of General Wolf,?who fell at
Quebec in the memorable French Canadi
an campaign To the right and left of the
medallion is the Union Jack of Great
Britain, and surrounding all is the nigh
obliterated inscription : j v
" In memory of Major-General James Wolfe.
Marched to Quebec January 13th, 1759." j
After marveling at this rare specimen ot
ye olden time, and with the instinct of
Pickwick scrawling " a note ( of that," we
perambulated toward , 1 ;
TFK MOULDING DEPARTMENT. ! '
Here may fancy, the unchained mind,
Witness the Ixadni work of man,
The molten fire brimming o'er : j
The flash; and the fiery wind."
Tucking bur skirts our coat skirts ner
vously, and shielding our face from the lurid
scorching glare of the seething cauldron of
Satanic flame, now emitting glimmering xae
tcow, again showers o! pyrotechnic beauty ;
anon shooting forth in variegated hues of
rainbow color; orange, indigo, t scarlet,
and emerald, we gazed on in wrapt admira
tion. Whizz, buzz, t-r-r-r-h-h-h-u-u-u-p-p
comes the golden liquid fire ; and. tho mini
ature volcanoe, smacks so decidedly of the
place where we are told sinners congregate
when they- "shuffle off this mortal coir
that we turned from it, nor cared "to cast
one longing lingering look" at the Bellze
bubbian fiery' type. ' ,
Carefully treading over freshly made
castings, and catting - a half glance at the
men engaged in handling the ladles and
tending the fires,' who seemed healthy
and energetic in this unenviable calling,
we passed out on' the east gate of
this department and took an outside
view of the melting turnance lust spoken of.
Imagine a long smoke stack of a steamer,
then double its size." Then at the height of
about ten feet from the grouud the fire-door
is situated Into this apperture, about
l8 M 12 inches, is thrown promiscuously, or
rather alternatively during "heating" pro
cess, soft coal and old iron. . A most insuf
ferable heat is allowed to generate, and you
can imagine the intensity of that heat which
is necessary to transform conical shells of
an inch and a quarter in thickness, into
running liquid fire. As no doubt all of our
readers have seen the process of moulding.
we will pass on, so therefore wo take you
into the " !
BLACKSMITH DEPARTMENT. J
Leaving the furnace wrathful,
"In the heat and hurry of his rage."
Ilere the disciples of Tubal Cain; and I
must say, some of them not darkened by the
dusky illumination, of their muscle develop
ed occupations cheerfully saluted us as we
entered. We doffed our hats, to these men
of brawn and muscle, and sighed,
" Cause we were not like unto them," .
in their beautifully expanded - chests and
sinewy arms; This department, was barren
of any interest, as any blacksmithing might
be, with the exception, however, of the won
derful activity of the workmen, who, while
one lifted his ponderous arm to puff the
bellows, the Other cruelly thrust the mad
dened iron, further and further into the
murderous heat. This department is entire

contains three forges and seven men. j The

ing part of tlie manufactory
i THE MACHINE SHOP
in the maid building, which is firmly
erected, the; material being brick. It is
about 100 h 30 feet, and has three floors ; the
first of - which we are now on. Here are
eight steam lathes, all in the ceaslcss whirl
and din of industrious application to their
several peculiar duties. . Here.is a man who
sits, seemingly unconciou3 of our presence,
applying his fearful machinery to the
sharping ot some portions of machinery, ap
parently insignificant to the casual observer
but which, perhaps, may revolutionize the
world. Two planes, one screw and bolt
cutting machine, and a beautifully and
symetrically formed "Shaping Machine"
are one this floor. Toward the Eastern por
tion of the building is the Engine, whose
mighty evolutions keeps the whole ma
chinery of the vast cstablisment in motion.
This engine is of their own manufacture, of
twenty-five hoWpower, thirty inch stroke,
and ten inch piston. It requires about
seventy-fire pounds of steam to "run" the
establishment Iwith satisfaction.
The fly-wheel makes seventy revolutions
per minute, with only a cylinder of ten
inches. We tere pleasantly reminded here
of what Southern manufactures could be, if
sufficiently supported. We do not profess to
be connoisseurs ot the. art of shaping iron,
but simplicity ot construction we can
comprehend, and if there is anything to-sur-pass
this, one of our greatest signs of prog
ress, in simpHcitfjin harmony of motion, and
in easiness off general gear we have yet
to see it. - i ' ; '
Next in order was the carpenter shop, on
the next floor.1 So treading lightly s up the
angular staircase, we were ushered into the
asylum of the! "hewers of wood" of the
the more advanced century.
THE CARPENTER SHOP.
On this floor, all that science, skill and
genuity has contrived and invented is laid
before the astonished gaze of the visitor.
Here are planing machines, that take the un
couth monarch of the forest, and shape him
until he, perhaps, shall grace the table) of
an Emperor. Again two turning lathes

stubborn oak, and elastic pine. Down to
ward the Western portion of the building
is heard the deafening hum and buzz of the
circular saw as it ' cuts in measured way
that which stood the flash of lightning and
the peal ot thunder. To the North is the
moulding machine, mortising . machine,
"Geayers" planer and scroll saw.' Seven
men are laboring on this floor, five colored,
and two white. Bidding good bye to this
floor, Excelsior like, we went higher and
here if it were not for tho gradual approach
of night that Warned us to be speedy and
expeditious in our investigations, this .would
have received our most rigid scrutiny. Here
