MISCELLANEOUS ARTICLES. The committee on miscellaneous articles respectfully report that they have given the articles submitted to their examination, as much attention as the time allowed, and the opportunity for inspection would warrant.

The duties of this committee are by far the most laborious of any, and require such a versatility of talent in order to judge properly of all the matters submitted to them, as is rarely to be found in so small a number as compose your committee. Over twelve hundred articles are upon our schedule, embracing almost every imaginable "miscel. laneous” article, and that the merits of some should be overlooked is not surprising, we would suggest that in future, the committee be composed of six or nine persons, in order that they may so divide their duties, as will enable the matters submitted to their judgment, to receive a more careful examination than is now possible.

The committee recommend the following premiums:
No. 2 to 7, Duryee & Forsyth, Rochester, N. Y., portable

and counter scales, exhibiting good workmanship and
embracing all the latest improvements, worthy of espe-
cial notice..
