THE undersigned would inform the public that they continuo to manufacture Hohse PownRsnnd Thkesuing Machines, two and a bnlf mies from the village of Ann Arbor.. on the railond. The Hoi se Power is a Inte inven tion by S. W. Foster, and is decidedly superior to any otber ever oflered to the public, aa will nppear by the statements of those wlio have used thein during tho lust year. It is light in weight and email in compasa, being carried together with ihe Thresher, in a comnion waggon box, and drawn with ease by two horses. Jt isas litilc ljable to break, or get out of repair, as any otlier Horse Power, and will work as easy and thrash as much with four horses a ttached to it as any other power with fivi horses, as will appear from the recommendations below. New patterns have been made ibr the cast Iron, anü addiiional weight and sirength applied wherever it had appeared to be necessary from one year'suse of the machine. The subscribers doem it proper to state, that a numbcr of horse powers were sold last year in the village of Ann Arbor which were believcd by the purchascrs to be those invented by S. W. Foster, and that most or all of theni were either mnde ïhaóiiially different, or altered belbre sold, so as to be mau-rially different from those made and sold by theubscribers. Such alterations being decidedly detn menta', to the utiüty of the machine. They havo good reason to believe that every one of those returned by the purchasers as unsatisfactory wero of this class. They are not aware that any Power that went from their shop, and was put in use, as they made it, has been condemned or laid asideas a bad machine. All who wish t buy are invited to examine them and to enquire of those who have used them. - There will be one tbr examination at N. H.Wing's, Dcxier villagc; and one at Martin Wili.son's stoTchouse in Dct'oit, - both these gentlemen being agents for the snle of them. The price will be $120 for a four horse power, with a threshing machine, with a stave or wooden bar cylinder; and $130 fora horse power with a threshing machine wilh an iron bar cylinder. The attention of the reader is invited to the following recommendations. S. W. FOSTER & CO. Scio. April 20, 1842. REC OMMEN DA TIONS. This is to certify that wa have used one of S. W. Foster's newly invented Horse Powers for (bout five months. and threshed with it about 3300 bushels, and believe it is constructed on better principies than any other Horse Power. - Une of the undersigned has owned and usedeigh different kinds of Horse Powers,and we believe tha four horses will thrash as much with this Power as five will with any olher power with which we are acquainted. H. CASE, S. G. [VLS. Scio, January, 12, 1S42. This is to inform the public that I have purchas cd, and have now in use, one of the Horse Pow ers recently invented by S W Foster, made by S. W.

This is to iuform the pnbüc that I have purchased one of the Horse Powers, recently invented b S. W.

I believe 4 horses will thresii as mud. with this p'ower as 5 will with any other power The plan and the working of this power havi been universally approvod of by furmers for whon; I have thrashed.
