Narrative: Besides the improvements in the manufacture of gunpowder at the Oriental Works, just mentioned, they have introduced steam in drying and refining, also machinery in many places for hard-labor, which allows them to make a larger and better product, with less labor. The works are furnished with the very best machinery, and are capable of turning out powder in quality second to none in our country. The mills of the Oriental Powder Works are forty in number, scattered over a large tract of land. These, with store-houses for raw material; magazines for the powder; mills for kegs; tenement houses for workmen, and other buildings, form a considerable village. The product of the mills is found in all parts of our country, for the Company have agents in nearly every city and large town in the Union. The Oriental Powder Mills own a large tract of land stretching along both sides of the Presumpscot river for over a mile. This river is the outlet of a chain of lakes, and furnishes one of the finest and most efficient specimens of water-power in this country. Knowing the hazardous character of the business, and the unwillingness of many to engage in it, this Company, as well as others in our country, have studied not only how to improve the manufacture of gunpowder, but how to do it with the greatest safety. In these practices, the United States is second to no country in the world. Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy!
