Having, after long and careful study and great
expense, succeeded m perfecting tlio above re-
ferred to machine, we offer it now to the public as
the most powerful, safe and expeditious compress
Wholly of metal, reducing its risk of destruction
much in case of fire, and working with scarcely any
friction, its movements are smooth and noiseless;
and as tiie whole power is directly applied to the
baie without intervention of levers, cou gearing or
other devices common to other forms of com-
presses, its work is performed at less cost of fuel
per baie than auy press in use.
When used in combination with Riesel's Bale
Ejector, which discharges the pressed bale as soon
as the press opens, thereby relieving the men from
that latior, 300 bales per hour can be compressed
The capacity of the press is 2000 tons, and this is
applied to each bale pressed.
These presses are built in the very best manner,
and with ail the care that skill and experience can
command, and are guaranteed in all their details.

In the New York market sterling ruled dull and
drooping and francs were weak. Iu the local mar-
ket the rates of sterling were advanced.
Of the Loudon mouey market the Economist of
the 24th of November says:
The expectation which some entertained of a re-
duction this week in the bank rate has not been re-
alized. ami probably the directors have acted wide-
ly in retraining from making any cbango. They
have, at any rate, consisted their own interest in
the matter, for they could not hope by any down-
ward movemeut t«» diaw busiuess to the bank.
With their rate at per cent, they would inevita-
bly be as effectually underbid as they are now. and
in tiie end. too. borrowers would not be likely to
benefit much by any alteration, since t.i.e effect of
lower rates here would in al! probability be to
stimulate the export of gold, an 1 so tend to work
its own remedy. Besides, the bank should now be
getting a f'nmer hold over the market through the
ingatherinr of the revenue, and it is further to be
remembered that »s the bank holds the £1.730,000
of t- easury bills, which mature at the beginning of
next mouth, it will then be aide, it it chooses,
greatly to reduce tiie outside supplies of money.

IvIoneVs Stocks and Bonds.
New York, December 10.—Governments strong.
Railways irregular. States quiet. Stocks lower
all around in the forenoon, though special weak-
ness was confined to Nerthern Pacific. Union Pa-
cific, Northwest and later to the Canadian Pacific.
The decline was unquestionably the result of a
bear raid, in which the attacks were directed main-
ly against the two first named, and there were appa-
rent evidences that a large part of the sales of Pa-
cific and Oregon Transcontinental were short sales.
In two hours—from 32:30 until 2:30—it was
very dull. At first there was a decline, continuing
until about 2, off from ^j®^g—the latter in North-
western—to 118>4, with on Union Pacific to 82J^,
14 on Canadian Pacific to 56?£. After 2 the market
was firm and the decline recovered. In the last
half hour it continued dull, but prices were a frac-
tion better, and a few stocks were up to the high-
est point of the day. The market closed quiet aud
generally firm. Transactions 223,000.

A Story of the Seminole War.
[Correspondence Philadelphia Times.1
It is a curious thing iu the history of the In-
dian wars in Florida that the Indians always
found ready allies among the negroes, ami
some of the bloodiest pages of the history have
been written by the black hand and not by the
red. The cruel, cowardly and treacherous
nature of the ngro found its counterpart in
the cruel, coward aud treacherous nature of
the Indian, and the two became sworn brothers
in outrage and murder. The runaway negro
has led many a savage band to the home of his
former owner and exultingly assisted in the
bloody scenes that followed.
One of the ablest-; shrewdest and cruelest of
the Indian leaders was a coal-black negro named
Abraham. A niece of his, 44old Aunt Jinny,"
is no v li\ing near Dead Man's bay, Fla. i8he
says that her Uncle Abe was a short, chunky
negro, of most repulsive features, very sullen
and taciturn, only happy when he was annoy-
ing or torturing some of the animals on the
place, and that his excessive insoleuce con-
tinually got him in trouble. He was owned
by a planter named Dickson, whose only son,
Frank, was the immediate cause of Abraham
running away and joining the Indians, Frank,
tin* young son, was very fond of practical
jokes, high-spirited and full of wild and up-
roat ious tun. These traits eventually cost him
his life, and in a very cruel way. Returning
with a few comrades from a hunt oue day—the
spoii being a line buck—they determined to
have some fun with the negro boy Abraham,
who had given them some insolence as they
passed him. After skinning the deer, they
caught the negro and fastened the hide on him,
with the head and horns attached. 'I he young
dogs were then set on him, amid the uproarious
laughter of the young men and the jeex-ing re-
marks of the other negroes who had gathered
around. The dogs were not allowed to hurt,
him, but the grotesque nature of the punish-
mc at aroused the deepest resentment of the
negro. A few nights later he disap|>eared, and
although search was made for him it was of 110
avail. He fied to the Indians, where his great
strength, knowledge of woodcraft and deep-
seated hatred of everything that wore a white
skin made him the recognized leader in the
foray and the council. Brooding over the in-
sult he had received at the hands of his young
master he hailed the general outbreak ol the
Indians with the greatest delight, as he saw
therein a chance for ample revenge.
•Soon after, at the head of a party of Semi-
noles, he raided the plantation of "his fotmer
owner in broad daylight, and killed every
white person on the place, with the exception
of the son Frank. He was reserved for a ter-
rible fate. A bull yearling was hastily killed
and skinned. The skin was placed up-
on Frank, stakes were fastened to his
arms and legs, forcing him on all
fours, his eyes were put out with a
heated knife, aud then, a rope being tied
around his neck, he was dragged over the
ground, the Indians shootingarrowafterarrow
into his quivering body. He was then scalped
and left where he fell, still fastened in the
hide, a dainty feast for the buzzards and wolves
that always followed these marauding parties.
It is said that tbis negro Abraham excelled the
Indian in devising tortures for sueh whites as
were unfortunate enough to escape death and
be captured alive.

London Engineering Review: Compound lo-
comotives appear to gain favor in Europe, and
the number in use is steadily iuc reusing. En-
gineering has recently published engravings
and details of a new loc motive of this type,
which was exhibited in the Amsterdam exhi-
bition. The locomotive was built by Mr.
Schichan, of Ebing, and is altogether of a
different design from the Webb compound
locomotive. The Schichan engine has some
resemblance to tiie ordinary American locomo-
tive. and is designed with two cylinders, one
for high pressure, the other for low pressure
both being located outside the frames. The
boiler carries steam of ltk) pounds pressure. It
is claimed th,jt eugiuess of this class save 15
per cent, of the fuel used by other locomotive*
to do the same amount of w ork.

Texas Panhandle: The shipping season now
about drawing to a close has been in every
way satisfactory to ranchmen in the way of
go<>d prices. A few times during the season
there were temjiorary depressions of the mar-
ket. but they were caused, as all well knew,
by heavy runs of inferior stock. Although
these breaks were the means of losing thou-
sands of dollars to the business, they were of
great benefit, if wisdom may be gained by ex-
perience, as teaching in a severe way that until
slock is in proper condition for market it
should be left on the range. Aud in another
particular ihe season has taught a useful les-
son : Ranchmen have learned that their busi-
ness is not the thing of a day, month or year,
but is founded on a human necessity, and that
demand for their product must hold prices to a
reasonable standard. Three seasons ago, when
the market prices appreciated to a degree
scarcely known before, there was everywhere
exhibited an anxiety to rush out everything
that would do to go, in order to get
as much wealth as possible before the
market should break. The following
year when prices went to the unprecedented
llgures, cur ranchmen were very pointedly
shown that they had sent away their real
w ealt h the year before in unripe cattle, and
had received a very poor return. At the open-
ing of the present season there were still doubt-
ing Thomases, and the fact that cattle were
late in getting fat and that impatient ranch-
men shipped those realljr unfit for market, did
not tend to relieve the doubt. But the season
has passed without a noticeable break where
really good and fit cattle were in the scale, and
our friends have been clearly shown the un-
reasonableness of doubt ami the solidity of
their business. This feeling is every-
where evident in the ranges, where
lands are being bought and ranches
improved by added comforts and facilities,
aud where there is rapidly growing appear-
auce of stability never known before. It is
good. The cattle in *\e> range are still put-
ting on flesh, and the i aspect has never been
bettor at this time of tOL. } ear, which is very
