A Si-bmamxe Vessel Descent of 1G0 Persons.
On Thursday of last week some three hundred of the
lending scientific men of the United States, together
w;th several Members and Senators in Congress, and
officers of the army and navy, started in a steamboat
from this cityto witness experiments with the vessel
called the Nautilus, designed and constructed for
gubmarine explorations. This machine was brought
to the notice of the public some two years ago, by
M.ijor Sears, the inventor, but was not perfected un
til recently. The invited guests found the vessel sta
tioned near Glen Cove, Long Island Sound, about 20
miles from this city. From the notes of a reporter
present we extract the following account of the expe
In mid stream off Glen Cove, we found a large
schooner lying at anchor, with steam engine on deck,
and on mooring near her we learnt this apparatus
was xiscd for forcing compressed air into the receiver
which supplies the Nautilus. At a few yards from
the schooner we observed floating, like a huge por
poise in the water, the Nautilus. The Nautilus in
external form is almost round, or, as a U. S. Senator
present aptly termed it, "a. water baloon." It is
about ten feet in diameter, by seven feet deep, and
weighs ten tons. A peculiarity, as compared with
the old fashioned diving-bell, is that it enters from
the top; a species of iron trap door screws down
when all are in, and when the machine is at the bot
tom, another and large door opens in the base, so as
to proceed with the works required. Condensed air
is produced on board a vessel or on land, and is com
municated to the J"autilus by an immensely power
ful hose formed of thick india rubber, strong enough
to withstand a pressure of 200 pounds to the square
men ; tni3 is anixeu to tne top ot the machine, ana
communicated by valves inside to the working and
water chambers. After entering and closing the top
of the machine, water valves are opened, which cause
the Nautilus to sink ; air is taken into the working
chamber until its density is equal to that of the water
without ; the door of the bottom is then raised in or
der to move upon the ground. The operators step
upon the bottom and carry the machine Avith them,
or in current way cables passing from windlasses in
side, effect the desired movement. To lift etone, a
hook placed on the bottom is affixed to the stone,
condensed air is then thrown into the water cham
bers, and the water is expelled until the weight of the
stone is overcome. It is then moved in any direction,
and, by the re-admission of water, is again deposited.
In one of the experiments we saw performed, a stone
weighing five tons was lifted, moved horizontally be
tween twenty and thirty feet, and then deposited.
The time occupied in going under water, bringing
the stone to the surface (22 feet,) then moving, going
down and depositing, returning again to the surface,
was onh' nine and a half minutes. The Nautilus will
lay 8,500 cubic feet of stone per diem, at a cost of
885, being less, according to the opinion of engineers,
than the cost of the same work on terra firma. The
average cost of submarine constructions, is 1GJ cents
the cubic foot, whilst with the Nautilus, as demon
strated on Thursday, it is but one cent. All other
works are in like proportion ; the blasting of rocks
may be done by it as checply as in a quarry. Its
adaptability to the examination of ships' bottoms, to
determine the necessity of docking, according to the
opinion of Captain t omstock, of the Ualtic, will ettect
the saving of hundreds of thousands of dollars annu
ally. Its utility in pearl, coral and sponge fishing was
remarkably demonstrated. A gentleman largely en
gaged in pearl operations in the Pacific observed that
there was no limit to its value tor that purpose.
Pearl shells may be gathered by it at the rate of from
two to three tons per day to each machine ; this has
been proved by actual experiment in Panama and
California. Shells according to prices current, are
worth from $156 to G00 a ton. With regard to
lifting submerged vessels, the capacity of the pump
demonstrates that the largest class of ships may be
raised within three hours after attachment is made.
"In order to test the feeling in the Nautilus, 160
persons went down in her on Thursday, of whom
forty were ladies. We entered the trap set for us
with feelings of misgiving, and soon found ourselves
on of twelve individuals two being ladies. The iron
door was screwed down, and immediately on descend
ing a noise like the near letting off of steam dinned
our ears, but this very unpleasant sensation wa3 re
lieved by going through the operation of swallowing.
We got down before we knew it, and the engineer
lifted the door of the bottom and disclosed to us about
six inches of muddy water. When we had gratified
our curiosity during some five minutes, and obtained
a number of shells as relics, the door was replaced
and we shot up to the surface, the observation being
made by one of the ladies that she could stay down
nil day. Everybody was more than satisfied, though
few understood the philosophy of the invention or the
peculiarities of its construction as compared with the
" After this exhibition of the powers and uses of
the Nautilus, Major bears, the inventor, made a snort
speech to the invited guests in explanation of some of
its new leatures. lie said: lhe JSautilus is not
made or got up for a stock company to speculate on,
but for practical purposes. It is made to travel on
the bottom of the waters, to gather pearls, to collect
gold from the beds of rivers, to gather the untold
wealth of old ocean. The inventors had expended
much time and large sums of money in bringing this
machine to its present perfection. Immense and
unknown difficulties were met with at every step.
The first apparatus that we constructed could move
up and down in the water, but that was all ; we could
not get it to lift weights ; for as soon as we got any
heavy body to the surface, down it went from us.
These difficulties were also attended with danger, the
JVautilus having been shut up out of the water, at
the outset, four feet from the surface, and all thought
that those inside the machine were done for, except
the Inventor, who knew they were safe, if Ihey only
had the proper amount of compressed air with them.
The properties of air and water were not in the slight
est degree understood when we set out ; we had,
therefore, everything to learn to construct a science,
in fact. We had to rid ourselves of the various dim
culties'incidental to the condensation of air, ami more
than this, the intense heat of the air. Our pumps
could not stand the pressure we put upon them, for
iron melted and leather burnt up. We sent to
Europe to obtain pumps which would compress air to
the extent of 44 pounds to the square inch, but the
philosophical men of that continent sent us for answer
that our request was an impossibility. But we have
a pump now you saw it working to day which, in
stead ot 44 pounds, compresses air 200 pounds to the
equarc inch, and that pump is also our invention.
Water and air are the "principles of the JVautilus.
Water causes the machine to descend, whilst it rises
under the torce of compressed air. The applicability
of the machine is most shown at the bottom of rivers.
In California, South America, and other auriferous
regions, it will move from side of the gold streams,
baling up the dust at every step. Condensed air will
move every object to the surface, no matter how
weighty. We know, at this present time, the precise
locality, within a mile or two, of valuable shipwreck
ed vessels, whose united value will foot up to one hun
dred million dollars. The JVautilus can cruise about
the spot until it comes to the ship, and then raising
the treasure is but a question of time. A great fea
ture in the machine is that it is independent of all
outside influence or assistance, for it is managed from
the inside alone, as many before me will have already
observed.' ' These remarks being ended, several
savans expressed their views in commendation of the
Concerning this invention a scientific journal say : -
Heretofore the palm of superiority in mere mechani
cal invention has been universally conceded to our
countrymen by other nations, but we have been de
nied a claim .to discovery in works demanding a
knowledge of the hidden and mysterious laws of
nature. We challenge the world to produce more
astounding results than those embodied in the electric
telegragh, and this new invention of the Nautilus.
It is not merely the machine itself, but the acquired
knowledge in relation to the before unknown proper
ties and laws of air and water, now for the first time
developed, and which hereafter will be the basis for
still further discovery ; but in a commercial point of
view alone the invention is one of the most important
jf the century." -
Success of Ma. Bessemer's Lkvextion. -The Lon
don Examiner of Oct. 18 says, Mr. Bessemer's new
ention of making malleable iron and steel in SO to
0 minutes from the melted pig metal, by blowing a
current of common air through the mass, is a decided
success. Upon a recent exhibition before a large
number of iron-makers and scientific men, from the
tapping of the blast furnace to the production of an
ingot of malleable metal, weighing a quarter of a ton,
half an hour only transpired ; whereas by the old
process the same operation would have taken six
hours, producing an inferior article, with a large ex
penditure of fuel. The Examiner states that the
privilege of using the invention has been already
disposed of to the extent of the annual production of
a hundred and sixty thousand tons of iron or steel.
The fortune accruing to the inventor will be immense.
The Lucky Babies. The French Minister of State
has directed certificates to be distributed to all the
families having children born on the 10th of March
last, (the Imperial baby's birthday,) and therefore
godchildren of their Majesties. Assistance has al
ready been granted by the Civil List to the poorest
among them, which is to be continued annually ; and
in case the parents should die, the orphans are to be
provided for at the charge of the Civil List. The
certificates above mentioned are on parchment, and
bear the seal of the Minister of State.
SnooTixa Ramrods. During the late military
manoeuvres held at Copenhagen in honor of the
Crown Prince of Sweden, several severe accidents
occurred, as the Danish and German soldiers fired at
each other with their ramrods. It so happened that
one of these cases was brought under the notice of the
King, who commanded in person the Danish division,
whilst the opposite party, consisting of Germans, were
under the orders of Prince Christian. The King im
mediately sent off an orderly to Prince Christian, and
the rrince held a council of war with his officers.
when it appeared in evidonco flint, no 1p5 tlirm firo
Danish ramrods had been fired at his men. The
Prince then sent his aid-dc-camp, Captain Lindholm,
over to the King to require an investigation of this
wanton outrage, the more so as several of the Ger
mans had been shot with stones, besides the five ram
rods picked up. borne of the soldiers have died of
their wounds. The circumstance has made a great
sensation in Copenhagen, and is another proof of the
bitter teehngs and hatred existing between the Danish
and German nationalities.
Great consternation has been caused among the
officials of the Great Northern Railroad in England
by the discovery of a series of most extensive frauds
frauds which throw the defalcations of William
James Bobson on the Crystal Palace Company com
pletely into the shade. From inquiries which have
been instituted, it appears that Mr. Leopold Itcdpath,
of No. 27 Chester Terrace, Regent's Park, was the
registrar of shares and transferer of stock in the Great
Northern Railroad, and in that capacity had a com
mand over the whole of he shares of the Company.
Mr. Redpath has always borne the strictest charac
ter for honesty, and the conviction of his integrity
was strengthened by the fact that he was a Governor
of Christ's Hospital, a Governor of the Royal Society
of St. Anne, and was intimately connected with many
of the most influential and useful institutions in the
country. . This gentleman, to whom such vast inter
ests were intrusted, and upon whom the breath of
suspicion never rested, has disappeared, and with his
disappearance comes the appalling fact that he has
robbed his employers the directors and shareholders
of many thousands of pounds. It is said, and ap
parently upon the best authority, that the defalcations
amount to no less a sum than JLloO,000.
Russian War Vessels at Sebastopol. John E.
Gowen, Esq., of Boston, who is now in Russia, has
just entered into a contract with the Russian govern
ment to raise the ships of war and other vessels, 52
in number, sunk in the harbor of Sebastopol at the
time of the siege. It will be remembered that .Mr.
Gowen, under contract with our own government,
succeeded, after repeated efforts of British engineers,
had failed, in raising the wreck of the United States
steamer Missouri, sunk in the harbor of Gibralter.
Mr. Gowen will commence operations in the harbor
of Sebastopol next spring.
Race Won by the Murderer's Horse. It will
be recollected that the poisoner William Palmer, gave
$a,000 for a race-horse called Chicken, which, on
running for the Oaks at Epsom in 1855, fell and se
verely iniurcd the "jockey. The new owner of Chicken
changed its name to Vengeance. Singularly enough,
the great Ccsarewitch race Tvas won recently by V en-
geance, Polestar (formerly the property ot John
Parsons Cook, the ictim) running second.
Death of the Scltaxa. A letter from Constan
tinople says : "Nothing has been talked of for some
clays past here, but the death of the favorite Sultana,
who was accused of a too fond familiarity with a
young Armenian who came to a tragical end. Very
sinister reports are in circulation on the subject ot
the death of the Sultana, who was pregnant at the
time of her decease."

"lJOTICE. Whereas, it appears from an examination of
JLnI the papers of Mr. Ruxton, ex-captain of the Protectorate
schooner Hob Roy, deceased on board the Caroline llort, dur
ing the passage of said vessel from Sydney to Tahiti, as well as
from other particular sources:
1st, That said captain had taken, from the bark Julia Ann.
wrecked at the Scilly Islands, the sum of 310 sovereigns.
21, That when the Rob Roy was wrecked" on the Navigator
Islands, said Ruxton declared that he had not saved more than
42J sovereigns out 310 formerly taken, of which fact there ii
great doubt, since a great number of articles of smaller valua
3d, That it is suspected that said Ruxton has embezzled, fur
his own profit, a part of the sum saved from the Julia Ann,
wrecked a second time with the Rob Roy ;
The " Commandant Particular," Commissioner of II. I. M.
in the Society Islands, has ordered that an inquest be made by
the Justice of Peace, acting ad interim as Judge of Instruction,
upon the facts above stated.
From said inquest, during which Mr. Charlton, second in
command of the Rob Roy, did not appear, by reason of absence,
neither tho crew, and whose testimony was very imiortant, it
That said Ruxton made, at Sydney, excessive expenses, out
of proportion with his situation and with what he was known to
possess when he left Tahiti.
That, in answer to one of the witnesses inquiring from hira
how he was able to spend so freely, he declared that he had re
ceived money as assistance from a Scotch society named
That, after the demise of said Ruxton, C9 sovereigns and four
dollars, as well as some good3 and jewelry, were found in his
possession, the origin of which cannot be explained.
In consequence, the Commissioner of II. I. M. has decided
that the present abstract should be published in the official
newspaper, so that all interested parties may present their
claims upon the succession of said Ruxton, delivered into tho
hands of the British Consul, who will preserve it during one year
from this date.
