MAKING MONEY. The succesg which our agents are meeting with is almost astonishing. Among the many ovidences of this fact, we present the following from one of our agents already in the field:

"I bave now been at work canvassing on your Magazine one week, and am delighted with the business, It is different from canvassing for any hing else I ever tried. I am sure to get a subscriber in every family where they can rake together three dollars. I am never received with indifference anywhere, for the first thing I do is to unroll my engraving before I let any. body know what I am after, and thus I get them interested before they know what a splendid offer I am going to make them. Sometimes they ask my price for the engraving and I tell them 5, and when I offer them the engraving and Magazine one year for three dollars they are perfectly astonished. I did not get to going well for the first two or three days: The first day I got 2 subscribers; second, 7; third, 6; fourth, 13; fifth, 9; sixth, 17. The first week I got 64 subscribers. I shall do much better next week. It is the Engraving that does the business Everybody wants the Engraving. You may calculate upon from one to two thousand subscribers from me this Winter. I am going to make enough out of the business to buy a farın in the Spring."

With such inducements as we offer, anybody can obtain subscribers. We invite every gentleman out of employment, and every lady who desires a pleasant money-making occupat on to apply at once for an agency: Applicants sho ld inclose 25 cents for a specimen copy of the Magazine, which will always be forwarded with answer to application by return mail.

SPECIMEN ENGRAVING. As we desire to place in the hands of every person who proposes to get up a club, and also of every agent, a copy of the en graving of "THE LAST SUPPER," as a specimen, each applicant inclosing us will receive the engraving, post-paid by return mail, also specimens of our publications and one of the numbered subscribiion receipts, entitling the holder to the Magazine one your and to a chance in the distribution. This offer is made only to those who desire to act as agents or to form clubs. Address OAKSMITH & Co., No. 371 Broadway. New York.

THE NEW YORK STEAM SAW-MILL AND MACHINE COMPANY.

CAPITAL $ 2 5 0,000. This Company has been organized with the above capital for the purpose of supplying the dernsnd for ihe COMBINATION PORTABLE STEAN SAW-MILL, and other improved machinery. They have purchased the entire machinery business heretoforo carried on by J. M. Emerson & Co., also the Montgomery works of Yonkers, on the Hudson, near this city, and with the experience and facilities combined in its organization are prepared to furnish machinery of all kinds at more liberal rates than has ever been offered at any other establishment.

THE COMBINATION SAW-MILL was patented October, 1856 and is now generally acknowledged to be the cheapest, most practical, and efficient lumber mannfacturing machine in the world. A large number of hem are in successful operation in different sections of this country, Canada, Cuba, and South America, and wherever theiı merits bave been tested they are being adopted by luinber manufacturers in preference to all other mills. The following letter expresses the general opinion of those using the Combination Mill:

Messrs. EMERSON & Co.-Gentlemen: I have tried the saw-mill purchased of you, and will say that it performs well, and more than meets my expectations, am well pleased with its performance. I set it up on a small stream that afforded constant water about as thick as my little finger, which was much inore than sufficient to supply the boiler. We are able to cut 8.000 feet of beautiful lumber in 12 hours, with something less than one cord of wood. It is the very thing we have so much needed in our county for a long time. With a little trouble and expense, we are able to move it from five to ten miles per day, and set it up in the heart of the timber, which saves the great burden of hauling the logs a long distance to the mill. Yours, respectfully,

JESSE KERR, JR., Louisville, Tennessee. The Company have purchesed LUND'S PATENT FEED ARRANGEMENT, which is illustated and described in the Scientific American for October 24. This adds grea:ly to the efficiency of the mill.

THE COMBINATION MILL, with all the recent improvements, and steam power of 16 horses, is capable of sawing from 3,000 to 4,000 feet in twelve bours, and is sold for $1,650.

The New York Circular Saw Mill is manufactured only by this Company. It is of snperior construction, and sold for 25 per cent. less than other mills of no greater capacity. A mill with 36 to 54-inch saw can be sold for $450 to $500, and with a 20 horse engine and boil. er is sold for $2.200.

STEAM ENGINES and BOILERS; Engines from one to 100 horse power; LOCOMOTIVE, TUBULAR, FLUE and CYLINDER BOILERS furnished at greatly reduced prices from form.

We also furnish other styles of GRIST-MILLS, when required.

WOOD'S CLASS BOOK OF BOTANY,

WOOD'S FIRST LESSONS IN BOTANY,

16 mo, 50 cents.

Wood's Class BOOK OF BOTANY, has now been before the public more than twelve years, and from the first, has enjoyed the precedence over every other School Book of its kind: and its circulation last year, (1856) has exceeded that of any previous year. Its success may be chiefly due to the fact that it was the first Botanical Work ever published in THIS COUNTBT, wherein analytical tables were reduced to a practically useful form. More recently, several Botanical Works have appeared, closely imitating the peculiar plan and arrangement of this, bat originating nothing. The First Lessons are intended for young scholars, and the Class Book for more advanced students. Each is complete in itsell, and this makes them the cheapest Botanical Text Book published.

The First LESSONS will be sent to Teachers for examination with a view to introduction into their Schools, postage paid on the receipt of 45 cents; and the Class Book, on receipt of $1.00,
