About the same period of time that we saw the machine at Messrs. Bevington's (which, we should have added, was said to be the invention of Lieut. Parr), another machine was brought under the notice of the Society of Arts, who rewarded the inventor, Benjamin Stott, of Bermondsey Street, with the sum of twenty guineas for the communication of the same. It is described with engravings in the twenty-fourth volume of the Society's Transactions, of which we subjoin the following brief account: - The skin is wrapped round a cast-iron barrel, having wooden ends, over which the sides of the skin are overlapped and made fast by pins stuck through them into the wood. There is also a longitudinal groove in the barrel for the insertion of a locking bar with points that holds down the ends of the skin underneath them. The barrel, with the skin so stretched upon it, is made to revolve by the agency of an attached cord passing over a pulley, and having a weight appended to the other end. The axis of the barrel rests upon two anti-frictio-n rollers, which turn in a slip of brass fixed to the wooden frame of the machine; and the weight is only just sufficient to overcome the friction of these parts, and to bring up the skin against the edge of the knife as it cuts by the traversing motion of a frame to which it is screwed.
