TEXTWhich have given so much satisfaction throughout the Union, as also for their STEAM POWERS, of various kinds and sizes, both Stationary and portable.
Their Engines are built with all the most superior modern improvements, and for their excellence of arrangement and design, were awarded the highest premium, a gold medal, at the last annual exhibition of the Maryland Mechanics' Institute. Among their PORTABLE ENGINES is one that was expressly gotten up for Plantation and farm purposes, and is emphatically a Locomotive or Portable Engine. It is of 10 horse capacity, and, for compactness, design and workmanship, efficiency, and ease of travel, is unequalled. The engine, boiler, smoke-stack, governor, and valve are all mounted on a substantial set of wooden wheels, with tongue attached, ready to hitch a team of horses to, by which it may be drawn to the woods as the power to saw lumber, to the field or barn to thresh out grain or rice, or for ginning cotton, grinding or
chopping or crushing corn and cob, or for any other economic purpose on the plantation or farm requiring such power. The smoke-stack is so arranged as to be free from danger of fire, as no sparks are emitted. The governor and valve regulate speed with a degree of nicety never before attained. It can be drawn by four or six horses any where where a loaded wagon can be.
