The Reynoldıs Steel Tempering Works, Reynold,s Barber & Co., Pro rietors, at Auburn are largely engaged in the manufacture of Reaper and Mower Knives, Plane Irons, Chisels, &c. The process by which they temper steel is a peculiar one, and, as patented by Mr. Reynolds, is the result of over forty years labor.

He certainly has succeeded in producing a finer granulation (temper) than has ever before been produced. Messrs. Reynolds, Barber & Co. control the patents for these processes, and are applying them succssfully in all their manufactures.- Their establishment is capable of turning out an immense amount of work, yet their orders are now, and have been for some months, accumulating far in advance of their present ability to supply; a circumstance which they will not long allow to be the case.

Charles A. Spencer, A. M., Optician, at Canastota, publishes an advertisement on colored page 1. It may not be generally known, yet it is a fact, that the discoveries and inventions of Mr. Spencer have entirely revolutionized the science of Optics. Under his powerful lenses much that has heretofore been admitted as truth, has been clearly shown to have been far from the truth. Interested optical instrument makers in Europe, who had not yet been able to produce Microscopic instruments of such great powers, were pleased to advance the idea that the improvements were impracticable and valueless for the study of natural sciences; but the great naturalists of the world were not fully satisfied with their statements, and after sufficient trials by some of the wisest savans in the old world, as well as the new, the old theory has been quashed, and today Mr. Spencerıs reputation stands unrivaled. Without entering into any kind of details, we advise all person who contemplate purchasing a telescope or microscope to consult Mr. Spencer.
"THE IMMENSE MUSICAL ESTABLISHMENT OF REDINGTON AND HOWE.--The enterprising wholesale Music Dealers of our city, Messrs. Redington & Howe, have just closed a most successful business year. Their sales have been immense- something entirely unparalleled in the history of the music trade in Central New York and Chicago. Their stock would supply a dozen ordinary city music stores. They are the only strictly wholesale music house in the State, outside of New York city. The have even some advantages over the Metropolitan houses. Our Syracuse wholesale store keeps constantly on hand the Pianos, Organs and Melodeons of several different makers, (a total of eighteen, with over fifty different varieties,) while New York Houses keep only makerıs instruments of each kind. Besides, business expenses in Syracuse are much less that in New York; consequently, Redington & Howe are diverting much wholesale trade from New York and building up for themselves a mammoth business in supplying dealers. The question is sometimes asked, whether other dealers cannot buy in New York as cheaply as Redington & Howe. The dealers have thoroughly satisfied themselves that they cannot, for there is not a house in Central New York that will agree to take the great quantities of musical goods that Redington & Howe buy. Consequently, others have to buy on a higher tariff. It is on the same principal that Stewart of New York forced a neighboring house to withdraw. He could sell at a profit cheaper than his competitor could buy. Messrs. Redington & Howe have similar purchasing facilities. Indeed, that can be justly called the "Stewarts" of the music trade in Central New York.
We are glad, also, to notice that Redington & Howe do a first-class business in the Pianos, Organs and Melodeons they furnish. Their principal stock is composed of first-grade instruments. These they advertise and recommend, because they know their reliability. This house can furnish second-class instruments cheaper that any other establishment in Central New York (for the reason of buying cheaper), so that if purchasers want a low priced instrument, Redington & Howeıs is the place to procure it. We advise our readers not to by any instrument without first seeing or writing to Redington & Howe. They will also tell honestly the quality of the goods. Another point: this house is financially responsible for all they recommend. Besides having the largest capital in the music business in Central New York, they are backed by as much more as they choose to call upon. For everything in the musical line, go to Redington & Howe, No. 2 Wieting Block, Syracuse."
