SPECIAL REPORT. The committee, to which were referred sundry articles for examination in the class of miscellaneous articles, respectfully report, that they have bestowed such attention on the subject as their time and opportunity would permit.

One of the first articles examined was samples of Oil of Peppermint, manufactured by H. G. & L. B. Hotchkiss, of Lyons, Wayne co., N. Y. From certificates and other evidence furnished by the proprieters, this Oil appears to be unusually pure and valuable, and meets with a ready sale in London, at a price considerably above other American Oils extracted from the same plant. The committee recommend that a small Silver Medal be awarded to Messrs. H. G. & L. B. Hotchkiss, for their skill in this branch of industry.

A Mineral Paint found on the farm of the Hon. Thomas Hawks, of Columbia, Herkimer co., N. Y., is said, by those who have used it mixed with oil, to form a valuable pigment. The committee regard it as worthy of further trial. Mr. C. P. Hunt, of Rockton, N. Y., presented several kinds of Ink, the principal merit of which, is its non-corroding character, it being free from acids; such an ink, if durable, must be valuable. Mr. Elisha Waters, of Troy, N. Y., also exhibited several specimens of black, blue, carmine and indelible inks, to which the committee could bestow but a passing notice.

Messrs. Taylor & Co. of Syracuse, deserve particuiar commendation, for the purity and excellence of their double refined Saleratus. They exhibited both the super-carbonate of Soda and

Potash. These articles being of every day consumption in food, it is important that they be free from all impurities, and to encourage the manufacture of such, the committee recommend that a premium of three dollars be awarded to these Pearl and Soda ashes.

Mr. Geo. H. Botsford, of Waterloo, N. Y., exhibited specimens of beautiful soap, with evidence of its excellence. A diploma is recommended to be awarded to Mr. B. Mr. Finkle, of Utica, had on exhibition improved Wire Heddles, used in weaving. From appearances, the committee are favorably impressed with this article; but the committee are not sufficiently informed to speak confidently of its merits.

DANIEL LEE, Chairman.

The judges would state that they were called to view 50 scales, of assorted sizes, made in the city of Rochester, by Duryee, Forsyth & Co., and Hitchcock & McMasters. Both of these companies have often exhibited their scales at previous Fairs, and received numerous diplomas. It can not be expected that the judges could assign a reason for a preference of the scales of one company over those of another, where the scales of both were so nicely adjusted that a five cent piece would turn a scale of 600 or 800 lbs. Their merits are too well established in public estimation to need our commendation. A railroad track scale, by Duryee, Forsyth & Co., we particularly examined and highly approved. Although weighing 30 tons, they weigh accurately small articles.
