Southern Mechanics, notwithstanding the scarcity of good materials, are turning out some very line work. Mr. Archer Pae, for many years superintendent of the Central Railroad shop, but now in the employ of Flippen & Hightower, Pittsylvania county, has just completed and forwarded to the Tredegar Works two slide lathes, for turning and cutting screws, which, for substantial usefulness, equal any ever purchased at the North. Mr. Pae is a superior mechanic, and, having had large experience in all branches of his trade, can get up cotton factory and other machinery with as much facility as any other workman in the South. The Government is no doubt reaping the benefits of his skill at this time on important works.
