Their immense works, much larger than in this city, are run by gas, the premises are lighted by gas and their homes are heated by gas. It is as free as the air and only needs striking a match to run the largest glass works in the country, and then there is much power wasted. There is no coal, no ashes, no dust. Capt. FORD has created a great excitement and waked up the natives. Capt. FORD and his sons are making money rapidly and it will not be long until they are millionaires.
