In of the. show windows of (t Jaqucs' jewelry .store the Union Pottery of this city, have placed, on exhibition for a.. few days, previous to shipping it to a decorated dinner set, known as the design, the latest production ol' their pottery, which, in the opinion of compe- tent judges, is not only entitled to rank as the most artistic production in design %nd finish ever placed iu the market by an American pottery, but is the eijual iu every respect to the best English and French scenic-porcelain jproductions. This superior made and artistic- ally designed aud decorated dinner set, which embodies in the highest degree the perfection and rapid progress attained by the potters, of Trenton in the past few years, has attracted so innch attention and elicited such unstinted words of praise and universal admiration from the people who have stopped to e.xamine it, that a representative of this paper paid a visit to the works of the company, ttp obtain whatever information it was possible toacquire concerning thu mndc by the-Frenton potters iuvthe production of line grades of ware, and learn best American productions compare with the best productions of the pottery.

The works .pt the company are admirably located along the Belvidere division of the Pennsylvania Railroad, on Uailroad avenue, within a stone's throw of several other leading potteries, and the premises occupied comprise an area of ground feet in dimensions, nearly every foot of which is covered by a 'series of substantial brick buildings, all of which are supplied with the most modern approved im- provements that will tend to facilitate speed in the preparation of clay, gloss and coloring materials and the perfection uf the product. and in this respect the works are among tin most complete of any in the country, aud whatever the modern worker in ciay can produce, or the artist beautify, whether of old or new design, has attained the highest stage of perfection in this pottery, mainly on ac- count of the care exercised in every stage of the process, even to the minor details, which tVciiiienHy in AlT'efic-.m potteries, SOMK OK riiK COMPANY'S FEATTRKS. The greatest care is not only exercised in the preparation of the clay, which is one of the most essential features necessary to successful -pottery productions, but every improvement of a labor saving character in the preparation of the clay and introduced throughout every portion of the works, and the buildings comprising the plant are arranged to avoid all unnecessary handling, which is another feature too frequently lost sight of in most American potteries. Ill this establishment the buildings are so arranged that from the time the raw clay and other prntwr every step in the process of manufacture and handling of the product ig a forward one, which well arranged system not only i'acili- tates speed in all departments, but it prevents unnecessary confusion, and ha-s great tendency to enforce the best of order and discipline, all of which is highly essential to successful man- ufacture, but heretofore has received too little attention from the proprietors of potteries in this country. A leading English pottery man- ufacturer, who takes a broad and sensible view of the numerous alleged advantages the pot- ters of that country claim to possess over American potteries in the production of fine ware, says: "Any vantage point the English manufacturers- may possess has been attained through long experience and the systematic training and habits of their which points are all the more readily acquired where thorough order and discipline prevails, aiuT good order and discipline arc marked charac- teristics of the employees of the Union Pottery Co. Among the more prominent improvements introduced into the Union Pottery Company's works is a blowing fan for cooling kilns, by the aid of which they are able to lire and draw- four (16 ft. 0 in.) kilns a week out of a total of four kilns, both in Summer and Winter, which it is claimed has never been accom- plished iu any other pottery, either at home or abroad. In addition to a forty-horsepower engine, wliich supplies the motive to the pot- tery aud drives the blowing fan to cool two biscuit and two gloss kilns, the pug mills in the department where the saggers are itianu-' factored, which branch of t4ie industry is loca- ted some distance away froTn the pottery, are driven by a twenty-five-horse power engine. Both engines are fed by two boilers, which have a combined capacity equivalent to 150- horse power, and with the exception of the fircfl under the kilns, six iu all, including two decorating kiius, the tires under the boilers are the only fires allowed about the premince. The buildings aud drying rooms are all heated by steam, which requires over feet of nothing undone to attain the highest standard of perfection iu the production of The products of their works, in addition to a full line of white granite ware, consists of the celebrated Union Pottery Company's thin semi-porcelain ware, the claw- of ware now on exhibition in the show window of Cook Jaqiies' jewelry store, which every unpreju THE NEW YORK LETTER.

A critfeaj examination of the Newport" design, must convince every un- biassed person that the only .superiority the English ware possesses over American produe- tiyns exists entirely in the minds of tliose who prefer the English simply because it possesses that potent eharm, but sooner or later, like everything else undertaken in this country, the production of our potteries will out-sell the best English ware, entirely on its merits.
