This machine is as high as a common two story country dwelling house, and will, when tinished - if the expectationá of its inventor aro realizeil - constituye a most extraordinary specimen üf muohanicaü ekilï and ingenuity. jjr If any man thinka it a small matter, of mean concernment to bridle hia tonguo, he is much mistaken : for it is a point to be silent, when occasion requires ; and, better than to speak th ough nevereo well.
