lAn Incident ti the Snlithrlittre Rooms.
Among -the soldiers; who arrit' edin this city,
on Thursday, on thetioon trail:l*o . m the east,
was Dr. Wm. Forrester, Surgeon of the sth
Kentucky Cavalry, who has jest been re
leased from Libby prison. On the same train
was. Mr. J. T. Sample, news dealer, of Alle
gheny, who had a very interesting converse
lion with tho doctor, and who, by the way,
corroborates the statements relative to the
horrible sufferinge of our prisoners at Rich
mond. On their arrival bare, the doctor,
being a stranger, desired to know where he
could get • comfortable dinner, and was di
rected to the Continental. On his way thither
ho was accosted by a gentleman and conduct
ed to the dinning rooms of the Subsistence
Committee, where he found.s, neat table, well
supplied with warm, desirable victuals, and
attended by those most invaluable servants,
neat and tidy ladies. The doctor actually
-thought HIS he Was in a first eless restau
rant, and when hehimi eaten he very naturally
askedwhat the bill eras. The lady addressed
pleasantly informed him that there was no
charge,aid at his raciest ails gave
him a brief account of the work which the
Committee had been performing. No one can
hotter appreciate these kindly offices, in be
half of our brave soldiers, than the returned
prisoner, fresh from the scenes of Southern
cruelty and barbarity, and Dr. Forrester could
scarcely find words to express the gratitude
which he experienced. He bid the ladies God
speed in thaw noble work, and before leaving
contributed a bandsie sum of money to the
institution, together with a photograph of
the Libby Prison.

One prominent defect of the double thread
loop stitch is the waste of thread in fordzing
It. Each yard of seam requires on an aver
age. 7y s yards of thread, or twice and one-half
the amount required by the ' , lock stitch." An
estimate may be easily made of the compar
ative expense of using the two. In the skirt
manufactory of Messrs. Douglass & Sherwood,
a day's work of ten hours for one person is
estimated at 1,000 yards of straight seam, ton
stitches to the inch, with the loek-stich ma
chines, which they use ; this length of seam
roquire&tbree thousand yards of cotton thread,
and with the double thread chain or knitting
stitch machine, 7,500 yards would
The cost rif. 3 ,000 yards of cotton thread woald
be $1,35 at wholesale,and the cost of 7,508
yards would be $9,10, making a difference of
81,85 a day in this item alone or more than
$5,000 a yeas; with costlier thread or silk (at
present prism at $ll per pound), the difference
would be much greater. In shirt and collar
manufacture, where the stitch is finer, and less
length of seam Is sewed, the difference per
day is only about 75 cents in favor of the lock
stitch machines. In a manufactory like that
of Winchester & Davies ' where ono hundred
and sixty o nsf these ueldnea are used, the
saving is $l2O per day. Tho result is that the
chain or knitting-h R& is not used on this
work. In quilting, where silk is used, the
difference eaeh. day would amount to more
than two dollars and twenty-five cents on
each mahine.—Scientific American.

Though the movement amounted only to a
reconnoissance in force, its purpose was cer
