A Tennessee correspondent, after informing us that we are indebted to an article on this subject by Hoe & Co., in the second nnmber of our present volume, for many subscribers in his locality, proceeds to give the following practical information: " As well as the number of teeth being proportioned to the hardness of the timber to be sawed, their number should also be proportioned to the power used. Each tooth of a saw can only cut advantageously a certain distancc forward in passing through thc log, which distance depends on the hardness of the wood; but if a saw has a great many teeth, and is driven by a weak power, each tooth will not cut so far forward as it should do, and there is a loss of power. If the power is great, and the number of teeth few, then each tooth will have to cut too far forward."
