Elyria Independent Democrat (Newspaper) - February 16, 1876, Elyria, OhioGbo. G. Washburn editor. Wednesday 9th, 1876. News of the Avis distinctly Jonys that Here Legal Power to impose poll Tittl disabilities on the rebels. He also Iston City says he never naked for Paron and never will and yet the demo ratty party Are making every possible to secure tots Pardon arid restore lira again to the Senate Well knowing present attitude of Defiance to the government. It is enough for Loyal no to know that to Day Jen Ivond be the most popular candidate the democrats for president. Ironia rally to his support As they did of in 18g3. I3f Hon. Reverdy Johnson while a guest at the executive mansion in Annapolis last wednesday was found dead with his Skull broken about s o clock p. Near the door to the while at dinner lie was seized with vertigo went out to get fresh air and probably fell against the Stone base which broke his Skull. He was burled in Baltimore on sunday fully ten thousand people being in it tendency. He was probably the Ablest constitutional lawyer in this country. Torture permitted unless intended but this is not All Jeff Dayis taking no notice of us col. Chandler reported again on 5th of August duty requires me respectfully to recommend n change in the officer in command of the Post brigadier general H. Winder and in his place of some one who United both Energy and Good judgement with some feelings of humanity Homo one who will not advocate deliberately and la cold blood the propriety of Tveito. Ing them in their number has reduced by death to make the present arrangement suffice for their accommodation who will not consider it a matter of s Elf la Dation and boasting to nth has never been inside the stockade a place of horror which it is difficult to describe and which is a disgrace to civilization. The Only notice. Jeff Davis took of these appeals to his mercy was to applaud the inhuman commander of the prison for his Fidelity to his duty and promote him to higher rank. This is the position in which Jeff Davis is placed and his denials Only deepen his damnation. Screw and tap manufactory. Davis letter he shows where he stands to Day by plainly saying that it was the Southern people alone who were wronged in the rebellion. These Are his exact words the mellowing influences of time and occasional demonstrations at the Korth of a desire for the restoration of peace and Good will the Southern people have forgotten much have forgive ranch if wrongs they have bore if it be less so among their invaders it is but another example of the Rule that the wrong doer is less Able to forgive than he who has suite red Causeless wrong. So it appears that in resisting the a flirts of the Loyal men to save the Union the rebels alone suffered a great wrong at the hands of the invaders. What a pity that or. Blane should oppose the efforts of the democratic party to have this great sufferer restored again to citizenship. Compelled to resign. We have heretofore referred to the appointment of a Man named Hamilton to the clerkship of the committee of ways and Means by the democrats merely because he had made himself notorious by naming Iris son Wilkes Booth. When the fact became known it created a deep sensation and his friends attempted to deny the charge. He also denied it but the proof from his own neighbourhood was overwhelming. The democrats bore the Load As Long As they could and last week the chairman of the committee dropped him a note stating that his services were no longer needed. Have the democracy gained anything in thus attempting to re Wirtl such a heartless rebel a deliberate falsified. The Dies used in cutting the i make about 7000 wit is a.

It has now been in operation one year which has been a year of great embarrassments and perplexities which we Are glad to know have been surmounted and there appears to be nothing in the Way at this time to hinder Ita Rapiel development into one of the most important Aud successful industries in the country.

In order that we might give our readers a Correct idea of what is being done to secure this end we spent n half Day last week in visiting the Fanous departments and were politely shown through them by or.

Need not again describe the capacious and convenient building in which the works Are located. It is not surpassed in any particular in this portion of the country the second floor. The first department visited was that located on the second floor which is entirely devoted to the manufacture of the various machines used in the manufacture of screws and taps All being the invention of or.

All the screw and tap machines As Well As All the machines necessarily used in their construction Are made Here. Tool Stock booms.

Having got this far on a Short trip to the West i will give you a Brief sketch of the. Journey by missing connections in Butler Indiana we were obliged to stay there overnight. In the evening we liniments Ore Lair ill in his reply to Blaino seeks to avoid the effects of the charges brought against him by making the following unqualified statement appears from the reports of the u. A department that though we had sixty thousand More Federal prisoners than they had confederates Sis thousand More of confederates died in Northern prisons. Now the a Poi to to the War department show Tho following undeniable facts total number of captures by federals paroled leaving the number actually confined or left As prisoners of War in our hands mortality of Confederate prisoners per cent of mortality in Federal prisons 1325 total number of captures by the Confederate forces total number patrolled number actually confined in prison 04 072, being one half of those captured number of deaths in Confederate prisons per cent of mortality in rebel prisons thus it will be seen that 30 in Cush Hundred died in rebel prisons while Only 13 in each Hundred Biedin Federal prisons. Why do not the democrats hereabouts get up a petition for the enfranchisement of their great chieftain the Arch traitor Speaks. Jefferson Davis smarting under the Load of guilt heaped upon him by or. Maine has rushed into print with an a blushing denial of the charges so pro cd against him. His letter is written i Orleans and is addressed to judge Lyons of Richmond under Date of Jan. L eth. He denies that there was any such suffering in ail Carsonville As is represented when it is a historical fact that the testimony of thousands of Federal troops and of hundreds of rebel citizens is on record showing that the horrors of that prison arc incapable of being told. He i firms that what suffering die actually exist was unavoidable and says did As Well for them As we could. See what an utter disregard of truth characterizes this whom Tho democrats Are striving to restore to citizenship. So terrible and unnecessary was Tho suffering that their own officers protested in pitiful appeals for Relief and showed How it could be furnished. In Tho report of col. Chandler prison inspector made tto Jeff Davis j uly 5th, 18c4, lie says shelter whatever of material for constructing any has been provided by the prison 1 authorities and the ground being entirely Bare of Trees none is in reach of the prisoners each Man has Boen por fitted to protect himself As Best he can stretching his Blanket on such Sticks As he can procure. The prisoners Are furnished with so limited a Supply of fuel that they Are compelled to dig with their hands in the filthy Marsh before Jont Onod this Mai Rush contained the excrement of for roots with to Cook their the civilized world has always asked Why the necessity of refusing fuel and shelter Irben within seven Hundred fee of tube Oneail there was a surrounding the entire prison Tahj win this burning the tool room which contains Many hundreds of tools used in making the machinery and wares and which arc arranged in order so As to be readily found. The office is also on this floor convenient to the Stock room. The engine room. From this floor a Broad doorway opens into the engine room and to the left on the ground floor is the boiler room. The engine is a powerful c. Ii. Brown Patent of 150 horse Power and works without noise or Jar in the most perfect manner. Its balance wheel is 16 feet in diameter and weighs upwards of four tons. In the room below Are two boilers each of 90 horse Power but at present Only one is in use. Ample Power to drive All the machines is produced from one boiler which consumes Only half a ton of Slack goal a Day. The water enters the boiler from a Heater of or Morgan s invention where h is raised to the boiling Point by steam thus greatly economizing fuel. The Cut ii building is also heated by condensed steam from Tho basement to the fourth Story. The base Merit. We next visited the basement which contains the storage room for rough Iron and steel and is used for general storage purposes. Here also Are Tho ovens for Case hardening their wares which is done by covering them with animal charcoal and subjecting them to a red heat for six hours. This gives them the hardness and continuity of steel and adds greatly to their service and value. Here also the which consist of turnings Are deposited preparatory for shipment. The company last year worked up seventy six tons of Iron about one fourth of which fall As chips Anil Are sold in Cleveland for an average of a ton. A Large Spring of pure water passes into the basement which with the water from the roof nearly supplies Tho boilers without using their Force pump at the River. Floor. From Here we passed to the third floor where All tie machines for making and polishing the wares Are located. The machines for making screws Are nearly of uniform size covering a space perhaps by 5 feet and Are wonderful specimens of ing Nulty in economizing labor. Ono Man is required to tend each machine and he must give it his constant attention. A Rod of Iron of the required size is placed 1 in a tube at one end of the machine and without removal it is worked no into the most perfect screws of exact size and finish. One part of the machine cuts the Rod Down to the Reju Ortii diameter another cuts the thread another finishes the end As Aii. Other shapes the head of the screw report. The under the charge of we. Sawtell filled with a Motley collection of. Ancient. Artistic designs paintings on velvet Sample work paintings on canvass outline Elk Nassea Cut in Black paper Laid against White groundwork Daguer types of ancient Date with Grimness written in every linemen of the face and posture of the body.

Sawtell our progressive and energetic artist of whom Wellington people May Well feel proud. The a room 20x30 inside held a wonderful collection of ancient relics valuable for their Antiquity. Among these a Buddhist idol 500 years old property of Rev. L. B. Lane was looked upon As the leading relic. A Book the property of Jeny Wadsworth 200 years old was another relic.

The supper was mostly contributions from members of Cong Church consisting of excellently prepared dishes of both ancient and modern samples of culinary skill.
