I. J. Iron Mated Gunboat.
The bureau of -nstructioa of tl.o N.aj
Departmont bae fr-jpored plans and upwiGr
ttons fur the twent; iron-t.-l.id gunlwaU, in
accordance with the uill jasred fcoiue time since
bj the House, and ,:o Jridav by the Snate.
Subjoined ia a condtiscd description of one of
the boats :
The length of the e&el on deck is tj be two
band red and sixteen - feet two incite; itn-rno
breadth forty-eight fevt ; and dri.th of huld muiJ

to within five feet of the top of the deck.
The deck planks are to be of wbitu oak, live and
one-half inches thick and Dine inches wide. On
this deck there will be deck-light.", fitt-d with
abutters to make them water-tiht froui below,
and two conning houses (for gjiding the ship,)
one at each end, which are to be of wrought
iron plates, round in form, of two feet UiumeU r
in width, and forty-six inches fcigh, the bides t
be six inches thick, composed of one thickness of
fur-inch and one of two-inch iron. The lid of
.of the box is to bo f jur inches thick. At ten
inches' below the bottom of this cover the hides
are to he pierced with four tapering peep-holes,
two inches in diameter on the ouuide and tit
inches on the inside ; while three inches 1 wcr
down there will be, in intermediate epaces, four
m The armament of the vessel is to be contained
in two revolving Cole towers, whose outside
dpete is to be twenty-one and one half feet,
. height somewhat over eight feet. ' The tow
ers are to be composed of two thicknesses of
wrought iron plates, securely bolted To a backing
of oak ten inches thick, on vertical timbers.
The outside plates t be three inches, and the
inside two inches thick ; and all plates and ap
pendages to bo of first quality wrought iron
scrap, capable of sustaining a tensile strain of
5,000 pounds per square inch.
llach tower will have one por thole cut in its
sides for a gun. This hole is to be twenty-four
inches wide and fortr-one inches extreme height,
top and bottom to hi semi-circular. In the roof
is to be a grating, composed of slabs of wrought
iron six inches deep and one inch wide. Each
tower rests on twelve wrought iron conical rollers,
eighteen inches diameter, seven inches width of
face, tamed and polished, and with eteel axles to
work in a wrought iron circular railway secured
to the deck at every eighteen inches of its cir
On the outakle of the tower, the base, to the
height of twenty-six inches above the deck, is to
be a glacis, or inclined plane, extending ten feet
in every direction from the circumference of the
tower itself, and composed of two plates, each
one and a quarter inches thick, fastened on prop

The screw propellers are to be four-bladed, of
ten feet diameter, and with a mean pitch of
twelve feet six inches. The gr ntowers will ach
be worked by an oscillating engine. For ventilat
ing the berth deck there are, besides these, to be

Wonderful Feats of Horses.
The Tracrller of last week had a remarkable
story of a horse that run across a bridge ICO
feet in length, the ties of which were three feet
apart, and remarked that considering it was
night the feat was wonderful.
This is not the only instance on record of a
similar dangerous undertaking. We give the
following anecdote which President Dwilit re
lates in the history of the town of Great Harring
A Mr. Van Kensselaer, a young gentleman
from Albany, came one evening into an inn kept
by a Sir. Koot, just at the eastern end of the
bridge. The inn-keeper, who knew him, a.kcd
him where he had crossed the river. He amwer
ed, On the bridge. Sir. Koot replied, that it
was impossible, because il had Teen raised that
very day, and that not a plank had been laid on
it. Sir. Van Ketwfrelaer said that it could not
be true, because his horse had come over without
any difficulty or reluctance ; that the night was
indeed so profoundly dark as to prevent l.itn
from seeing anything distinctly ; but that it was
incredible, if bis horse could see sufficiently well
to keep his footing anywhere, tliat he should not
discern the danger, and impossible for Liui to
pass over the bridge in that condition. Each
-went to bed dissatL-fied. neither believing the
story of the other. In the morning. Mr. Van
Rensselaer went, at the solicitation of his h't, to
view the bridge, and, finding it a naked frame,
gazed for a moment with astonishment, and
In the celebrated trial of Daily and Ualligan,
Northampton, in th-j year 18 , for the murder
of Judge Spooncr, the'following fact was dieted :
Dt. was returning from visiting a
Eai near the borders of Uhode Island, when
0 was suddenly intercepted by two men who
approached him frori either side of the roa 1 and
demanded bis money. The Doctor was mounted
upon a powerful horse, who at the approach of
the men, took immediate fright, and turned
square around. The Dr., seeing the fright
of bis horse, abandoned the bridle and held
onto the horse's mane. After riding f-r what
he supposed a distance of six miles. In; .ir-w
up before a tavern. The landlord ir.q-.iir.-d
wtere be came from. He told him, whn the
landlord replied " Impossible, for you are t!. is
side of the Elacks'one River, and the bridge
over the falls was carried away sotne days since,
and but yesterday the main stringer only was
carried across the tream." The Ir. insisted
that his accoont was true. A party immediately
set ont from the tavern to test the truth, and lo
and behoid the hor hoofs were distinctly seen
on the single plank that spanned the stream.
A Rochester. N. Y., paper of a recent date
records an occurrence almost similar, which

ened will perform feats that under ordinary

What a ano-I;all Did. The Roston
t'ournr p ublisiies a letter of a correspondent on
bkird the United States steamer Mafsat husrttx,
fl Ship Island, Oct. 20 th, giving an account of
the affair let w.-eti that Vessel and a Confederate
t"amer, in which the following extraordinary
exploit of a rilled cannon-l-al! is chronicled :
During the action I think we hit her four
time, arid I know she hit us once with a CS-p-oun d
riil-j shell. The shell catered on our tt irtsiard
quarter, just alove the iron part of her hull ; it
came through the side angling aft (as we were a
little abaft his beam when it struck us.) and took
the deck in the pssageway, Ix-tween two state
rooms, mid completely cut off eighteen of the
deck-p.lanks, nmi then struck a beam, which
canted it up a little, so that it took the st-am-heating
pipes under our dining-tahle, cutting off
Cve of them, and tearing our dining-table all to
f 'ieors ; then went through the state-room bulk-
i bead and ceiling of the ship on the opposite friJc,
and struck oue of the outsnle (milter, and broke
every outsid-; plank abreast of it short off frotu
Ti.ntt. in an article on the report that the war may
I be settled very goon by proclaiming a general am
I cesty, thus refers to the way wc should deal with the
j chief traitors :
j That the President will offer amnesty to the Uwltrt
of this rebellion to the men who have plotted aud
j p lanned it, or to the eju illy culpable traitors who
j hare forsworn their allegiance to the Constitution,
I and put themselves at the heaJ of the armies arrayed
j against it, we do n t believe. There is nothing to be
i gained by such an effer, and it wculJ shock every
sentiment of natural justice, and act as a direct en
; couragement to treasou hereafter. The preit mistake
: in the settlement of the nulilEc ation contest of
, was that not one of the leading conspirators suffered
puni.-hment. If John C. Calhoun bad been hung,
we shouM have heard nothing more of rebellion.
I5ut the OiUtukea lenity of that day pavej the way
j for a renewal of the conspiracy now. That mistake
. ought not to be repeated It is not to be supposed
jthat all who, in this relxl'.ion, have beeu guilty of
! treason, can suaer the punishment due to their crime,
j No Government can in such a case ever deal with
men acoor Jinir to their deserts.
liut it is important that this g'gintic crime should
not go unpunished. It would be a scandal and dis-
: grace if men could thus bring a great nation to the
' verge of ruin, sacrifice thousands i f lives, make ten
thousand hearth stones desolate, exhaust millions
i upon millions of treasure, and yet escape puniah
. me nt at the hands of the people against whom their
crime has been directed. The leaders in this rebel
; lion enough from every State to make a terrible and
telling example must suffer the penalty due to trea
son. While the inipul-e ot mere vitidictiveness should
have no part in the action of the Government, jastice,
, patriotism, regard fur the futuie welfare of the Na
I lion, demand, that the men who have placed them
; selves at the head of this conspiracy, should pay the
: penalty with their lives. Public sentiment the just
I and h.Iy indignation of loyal n.en will exact this at
;' the bands of the Government.

English Flour Mill. One of the roost magnifi
cent flour mills in the world is that at the royal
dockyard in Plymouth, England. The building is
24') feet Ion and 70 feet in height. In the centre
are two steam engines of 4o horse power, on each
side 12 pairs of stones, each performing revolu
tions in a minute, and grinding five bushels of grain
per hour, so that when the mill is in full work, 120
bushels are ground in that time, and the flour is
dressed by eight machines. The corn is laid on the
upper floor, and then is conducted by spouts, first to
screening machines, or cylindrical sieves, arranged
sooiewbat like an archimedean screw. It is admitted
at ooe end, and being cleaned of sand and dust in
its passage, fulls into a hopper, passing therefrom by
spouts.to the mill-stones. After flour is ground it
requires to be purified from those parts which form
the outer envelopes of the seel the bran as it is
called. The machines usually employed consist of a
kind of cylinder made of wire cloth. The flour is
passed into this, and is brushed through the meshes
of the cloth by brushes. That which falls from the
upper part of the cyliuder is the fine flour, and from
the succeeding parts, the seconds, thirds, etc., the
bran leaving it last of nib The flour is sometimes
driven through the meshes of the cluth by means of
fans, which are made to revolve very rapidly, and
thus blow it through. The wire cloth is extremely
fine in its texture there being in some specimens,
more than 23,000 boles iu a square inch.
