MANCHESTER LOCOMOTIVE WORKS.

That the popularity of the Manchester Locomotive works is ever on the increase is shown by the growth of the company’s business. New Orleans, La , has contracted with the company for three more of the latest improved Amoskeag steam fire engines. This order makes a total of five Amoskeag engines contracted for by that city since February 1 of this year, including the famous self-propelling engine, with a guaranteed water capacity of 1,350 gallons. —Newark, N. J., has also contracted for a very latest improved second-size Amoskeag steam fire engine, and West Newbury, Mass., will rebuild its engine with one of the latest improved Amoskeag boilers.— Wilmington, Delaware, will likewise have the Mancluster people to supply engine No. 7 with a boiler of the same pattern.—Leominster, Mass., has contracted with the same firm to have its engine rebuilt with one of its latest improved Amoskeag boilers.— The following places will have similar changes made: Manchester, New Hampshire, to engine No. 1; Pittsburgh, Pa., toengine No. 6; and Plymouth, Mass., to rebuild its engine. These represent only a few out of many orders received and filled by this old and wellknown company.

Danvers, Mass., recently lost 2,000,000 gallons of water, owing to a broken main. It was three hours before the superintendent was notified of the break.
