u 1 THE JOTJRMI CLEARFIELD, PA., APRIL 14, 1858. Esittiso Machines. A few days since we had an opportunity of witnessing the operation of knitting stockings by machinery. The ma chine is a singular contrivance, but' performs Its work well. A single thread machine is capable of knitting from 4 to 5 pairs of men's socks per day, whilst a doable or treble thread machine will increase its capacity in like pro portion.

In consequence of this, we bejieve, Lis brother, John Ilollen, has undertaken the selling of rights for counties or States. His address is Fallen Timber P. O., Cambria Co., Pa.

In onr last paper we stated that the House had " decided to adhere to its position, but that an effort would be made to have a committee of conference appointed. On Tuesday, the Sen ate, by a vote of 30 to 24, insisted iqon hav ing such a committee granted. This, alter all their brow-beating, sounds strange on the part of the majority in the Senate. While they hoped that a majority of the House could be bouzht or bullied into an indorsement of the President's Kansas policy, they haughtily repalled the idea of conciliation and confer ence. When their bill came back from the House amended, Mr. Green wished it rejected without a word, which was accordingly done. If the Senate really desired a conference, then was the time to have asked for it. But, no doubt, they thought to coerce the House into measures. lu this they were mistaken, and now this same Mr. Green...
