The Sewing Machine has proved itself
a most valuable aid to the wife and mother,
having the care and education of eons and
daughters, and is too important a subject
to be lightly dismissed, without its real ,a
loe to the sex being fully set forth. There
has heretofore been considerable said on
the subject in these pages, and it is quite
possible that we nii , zht have satisfied with
what boa teen said, had the GrtovEn &

content with their previous achievements,
in manufacturing a very excellent machine.
'flier have recently, however, introduced
n new machine for family setvintr,

to public notice. Its merits are too great
to be slightly overlooked, and we think that
no lady will censure us for setting forth the

makes a new and entirely distinct stitch
from any other made by machine—a pat•
voted stitch—much preferred for family
sewing, on account of its great beauty,
strength, and elasticity. It is without a ri
val in these particulars, because fabrics
that are sewed by it can be washed and
ironed without injury to the seam. If a
'thread should break from any cause, the
ls'ant cannot rip, for each stitch is so se
t cnrely !tidied e's to be independent of the
I , remaining stitches for strength. We here

enable the reabr to judge of the seam,
when told that each stitch IF twice tied.—
Figuru 3 shows a small winding thread,

and give elasticity to the seam. In stretch
ing it the strum is divided between all the
stitches, and as each stitch gives or yields
to the strain, there can be little danger of
breaking the threads from washing or iron•
ing. Figure 4 shows the seam as it ap•

pears when drawn up and finished. The
machine itself finishes the seam, without
any recourse to the hand needle to fasten
the ends ; and if, as above represented,
there be an attempt to pull the two pieces
of fabric apart, it will be found impossible
t o do it, without breaking either the threads
or the fabric. Another great merit of this
machine is that it will sew either silk, tin•
en, or cation thread, direct from the spools,
as purchased` from the stores, without say
rewinding. In other words the two
spools-may be put upon the machine, and
sewed front them direct, and a lady mey

do not see why she might not exhaust the

ing the needles.
We will attempt a short description of
the process of making this stitch, with a
mere mention of the mechanism employed
to do it. The upper thread; carried by a
reifiesl needle, is passed through the cloth •
where it throws out a loop, which is caught•
by a circular needle carrying a thread one
httll the size of the upper thread, which
is passed through it and held open until the
upper or vertical needle is again passed
down, through both the fabric and ilC . lOOp
of the under thread. This process is re
peated Mail the seam is linithed, the low

plicity of the mechanism. It is so stipple
that a child of tell years can understand
and manage it, while its durability will

For a better \ippreciation of the excel
lence of the Gluer and Baker machine,
we will show %Vita progress had been
made in Sewing Machines prior to their
invention. The 'rarest approach to ma
king a two thretad seam by machinery
was the crossing of two threads, one on
the upper surface of the cloth, and the
other on the under surface, Figure 8
will show the upper thread earned through
the fabric, as before described, while the
under thread is contained on a bobbin in
side of the shuttle, which passes through
the loop, and to complete the seem, is
drawn into the centre of the fabric, It
requires many conditions to enable an op
erator to do this is all cases, for the thread
on the under side of the seam will assume

draw Out, as far as the ends of the thread
will allow them. On thin materials there
is not body enough to permit the crossi ng
point to be drawn Into the centre, and
there is no other way of tanking the seam,
than to permit the under thread to lie flat
on the surface of the, cloth, as shown in
Figure 9. The thread will shrink in
washing, and when the material is stretch
edlri ironing, this under thread must break
and when it breaks there is no security
.against ripping. The. utmost care is. re,
quired to be used in washing and ironing
garments made with the shuttle stitch
seam, and great care may make it quite
serviceable on thin.fabrtcs. Every shuttle
seam—whether upon thick or thin fabrics
—requires. to have the ends carefully fas
tened with u hand needle, that it may be
prevented from ripping.
There are various methods of making
this stitch, which is sometimes, for effect,
. i called the. “Lock Stitch," but it ms still a
shuttle seams, whether made by a recipro•
eating shuttle or a :bobbin and a rotating
hook; the thread in either case must be
careful:), taken from the original spools
and wound upon the bobbin. These hob,
bins contain very limited quantities of the
thread, and as the reader must readily per
ceive, the coarser the thread the fewer ,
number of yards the bobbin will contain.
This Shuttle stitch, which we have just
described and illustrated, was us great an
advance upon the Tambour stitch (which
preceded it), as the Grover & Baker stitch
was upon the shuttle stitch. The Tam

We learn that most of the low priced ing

We propose to suggesting an answer to
the above inquiry. As we look out upon
the face of nature, robed in the cerulean
vail that at present envelops the earth, and
the balmy air playing softly upon our
cheek, we can scarcely believe that it is
the latter ena of October, bordering close
ly on the chilly blasts and darkling clouds
of November. Yet it is so, Indian sum
mer is upon us, the last warm kiss of the
waning year.
But whence come these balmy days and
this smoky atmosphere ! Are the result
of our !quit brethren" in the west burning
their prairies ? l'co out boyish mind this
was a sufficient explanation. yet -we con
fess that u stray 'doubt would at times
cross our minds when we reflected on the
vast distance which the heat and smoke
had to travel, and the vast fires necessary
to product, such quantities of these mate
rials. And when wo grew to riper years
and learned !rem Purley—that wonderful
man—that the Indians burn the prairies in
the spring instead of the fall, We became

ion •
ker were rapidly disappearing, and the
prairies becoming cultivated grain ftelds,
which needed no burning; yet the Indian
summer decreased not with these changes
And now we Were fairly puzzled. What
caused Indian summer was set down atnon
the unsolved problems of our cranium, till
our college days (balmy and soft as the
present_life's real Indian surnnaer dawn
ed upon us, and then we asked the pro
lessor of Meteorology, who of course knew.
The result of our inquiry we will endeav
or to give so far as we remember it.
The name Indian summer no doubt was
given to this period from the fact that ii
afforded the Indians of our continent, from
time immetuorial, a favorable opportunity
for gathering the:r corn, which teas their
harvest. It was therefore their summer
to this peculiar sense, and hence the name .
And now lot the cause:
Two pherremena here meet us which
are to be accounted for; first, the mild tern
peralure so late in the season, and second
ly, the unusual amount of haze in the at
mosphere. They both depend upon the
the same cause, viz , the absence of aerial
currents or winds of any account, and the
consequent calmness of the atmosphere.
And this state of things rev/$y from the
gradual diminution of heat in the surfaee
of - the earth, which has been going on
since" the first of August. During the
spring and early summer months the earth
receives and absorbs more heat through
:the day than she radiates during the day
and night. The consequence is that the
surface acquires a high temperature. A
bout the last of July, by the shortning o(
'the days. the amount of heat received has
diminished so as to only equal that radio.
ted. Atter this period the radiation du
ring the lengthening nights exceeds the
abserbbion through .the day and reduces
the elevated temperature of its surface
down to its medium. This is reuched a
bout the last of October, or the first of No
vember. The earth has then became too
cool to give rise to ascensions: or local
tizontal currents, and as a consequence pp
cold air from higher latitudes roach us, in
the shape of chilling winds, nor are clouds
and showers formed in dm atmosphere, by
the admixture of cold and warm air,
Hence there results a period of mild days,
in which ibe sun pours down his sti 1 vig
erous rays with no cold wools to counter.
Act their effect, whila the mois ure which
exists constantly the form of invisible
vapor in the atmosphere, not being car
ried up by ascensional currents to form
showers, or swept away by horizontal gales
to be diffused elsewhere, becomes visible
'o the eye, in the form of a bluish gauze
like haze, such as we see at present, The
popular notion that this haze is smoke, is
of course errone' us: No confLigratiou
could produce such quantities, nor would
it, when produced, be carried to us front
: ,
in distance when there are no winds. But
while we assert that it is not smoke causos
by combustion, we admit that it pa ro- ,
of the general 'nature of smoke, which i
nOthind more than watery vapor arising
from burning wood and made visible by
passing into cool air. We also 'admit that
the smoke from chimneys, etc., intermtd
glee with the haze of this season, and be
leg of the same specific gravity, instead
of rising, comes to the earth, as in damp,
foggy weather, thus bridging to our sen
ses the odor of binning wood. It wilt be
perceived, therefore, that the smell of
smoke which confirms the unreflecting in
their opinion that the atmosphere is filled
with this substance, arising from some
burning material, admits of a ready ex
planation, without the untenable theory to
which they feel compelled to resort. Wa
tery vapor is fightWthan the air, at the
