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 by officers Servoss and Lawton, measured 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. , 9 Will our people ever Wake up to the re- sponsibilility of education?

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 oub mahufacturrjio ihtsre8ts a 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 ly separate from the moulding department, contains three forges and seven men. j The building is ot wood and ot very, substantial build. Our iudispen3able pencil again sharpened, we taicc you now, reader, to a more interest-- 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 that fashions into most impossible shapes 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 Is a perfect museum,out Barnuming Barnum in the tastefulncss of collection and careful- nets ox arranscment. In a room the full length of the building, some one 1 hundred leet, are erectedhree tiers of shelving.,. On these, placed carefhlly, by one whose bump of arrangement was a leetleblt r well ? de veloped" is every mechanical pattern imagi nable.::;ThUis";:-..iv; :v ( ' THE PATTERN ; ROOH. ' '.' 1 And here ? are the collection of thirty years I y Patterns ot cog-wheels, gudgeons, lamp posts, shafts, pulleys, rods, everything in fact that you can contemplate in mechan-' ical science r and , art j and the number well I when we say that every article , erst in this Foundry since tne foundation has a pattern here, you reader can best ' judge, Their name is legion. From this, we bur ned toward THE COPPERSMITH DEFARTUET, Ul , stopping only to take a hasty glance at the invention of the Foreman, "The Pea Nut Picker.". If one can' form unto himself a mammoth churn, cut into two - parts and laid in a horizontal position, and from the centre of this, a round box with one hun dred knives attached, revolving with great rapidity, and then conjure your head close ly enclosed between - a ; myriad of these knives and soft hair brushes on the side to ameliorate your bleeding condition, you can judge with what 1 terrible "feelihks," we gazed on this engine of pea nut mangling.
