We have received a specimen of1 this ink from the manufacturer, J. J. Butler, of Cincinnati, Ohio. It flows easily from the pen, and has a permanent black color, which, it is said, is obtained without logwood or bi-chro-mate of potash. It appears to us to be a very good ink. It has been estimated by the timber getters of the South that a large pine, sufficient for the spars of a first-class ship, requires from two to three hundred years to grow. .
