fortieth parallel of latitode, and that the ground
roand the tree was then covered with snow. It
; It perennial, and lives many years. It may be
fvopagated either from seeds or cutting. About
Cm third Tear it begins to Yield a crop of bolls

to ahoot the sue of oar peach trees, tlie first one
Ctaerved by Mr. K., about eighteen f.t in height,
bore s crop which he estimated at nearly one hun

can be cultivated wherever Indian corn can. In
iv reneral qualitiee the fiber of this plant has
. Men pronounced by cotton brokers equal to tbe
best Sea Island variety ; and some bl of it have
been sold fa South America for sixteen cents per
pouKl. . The yield ia great. - With favorable soil

-'Haxcrxa a Littko Cospss. Capt. Gordon,

made a jar of bis skin, as it wete, and kept it

wsil noon, when they contemplated breaking the
tL neck of the jar and permitting its living con
tents to escape altogether. It was a sorry spec
tacle to see Gordon led to the scaffold. Ha wasn't
c-iila a corpse, bat be as cerUinly wasn't much

Er A. Poe's frightful stories an individual
wbo was mesmerized in articulo mortis, and

The New Great Gun ,rj Enxland.
The London Times of recent date contains an
account of experiments at Shoeburyness, with a
gun of large size and great calibre. This gun,
says that journal, showed at every discharge
that our best and hitheito considered invulnera
ble furms of iron-sides were, so ao speak, al
most as easily penetrated by a shot as if tbe
targets bad been of timber." 'The Times adds :
After all our labor and all our expense, after
having made beyond comparison tbe finest and
strongest Iron frigates in the wor. we now find
that opposite a large lutizxle-loading gun, the beet
of our iron-sides can be as easily riddled and sunk
as wooden sailing vefeels. This discovery, only
made on Tuesday afternoon last, is due to the
keen and wholesome rivalry between the War
Office and the Admirality, the former striving to
devise irresistible artillery, and the latter to
build invulnerable iron ships. There has been
an immense variety of experiment on every con
ceivable form of target, and upon every possible
combination of iron and trood, iron and india
rubber, iron and wire, iron and hemp, and every
section of the American Monitor has been erected
and fired at at Shoeburyness, and proved to be
as vulnerable almost as timber, and, that no
chance may' be neglected, a target is being made
of ra:Iway burs, dovetailed and riveted together
in tbe same ingenious manner as the coating of
the Merrimae, and this beyond a doubt, with
much tbe same results that attended the Monitor
target. During a recent experiment, a target
exactly of the same materials and strength as the
Warrior's broadside, was subjected during the
whole of one d-iy and part of a second to a most
tremendous fire, but the concentrated volleys flew
off in bail iron splinters. The targets grew
almost red-hot in parts, but no miaeile passed
beyond its iron armor. The Warrior, therefore,
and iron ships, were justly deemed invulnet able.
fcjir V. Armstrong has a letter in the Times,
explaining the principle which bas rendered the
last experiment successful in penetrating and
smashing iron plates. Tbe smooth bre gnn has
a velocity excelling that of the rint gun by more
than a quarter. A smooth-boi gun bas been
made by Sir William length 14 tt. weight 12
tons and it was tried against the Warrior tar
get on Tnesday, in presence of Dukes of Cam
bridge and Somerset, and other high officials of
the Admirality and War offices. The first shot
weighed 15C pounds, and was fired at a distance
of 200 yardd, with a charge of 40 pounds of
powder. This solved all d' jbts. The iron mass
was shattered into crumbs of metal, and the teak
splintered into fibres literally as small as pins.
An increased charge was next tried, and the shot
passed not only through tbe plates, teak and the
inner skin, but buried itself in the massive tim
bers that supported tbe target. These two shots
were quite conclusive as to the power of the gun.
Sir . Armstrong says that a gun of 12 tons
weight, fired with a charge of 50 poonds of pow
der, will break through the "ido of the Warrior,
or the strongest ship afloat.
lhe limes concludes that no weapon oi ouense
or defense seems now lett so euective as a urgd
armor-clad and very swift steam-ram.
Gas-mi Ktso. The manufacture of gas,
though it includes many beautiful scientific
ceases, is not, on the whole, a sightly operation
W hat is not seen may he refined and interesting
but what is seen decidedly savors of a pandemo"
mum. There are huge caverns or black ccalt
huge caverns of red hot coke, and a row of roar
ing fiery ovens, which sooty men are constantly
feeding with coal thrust in out of long iron
scoops. The lids of these ovens or retorts are
generally heated to a white heat, and tbe men
who lift them oil and put them on, nave their
hands protected with thick gauntlet gloves.
After the coal bas been distilled, as it is called,
the red hot coke is raked out either into coke
vaults or iron barrows. . The spirit of tbe coal
rises up black pipes, like infernal organ pipes,
leading from each oven into a tube, running the
whole length of the retort house, called the hy:
draulic main, which they reach by a curved dip
pipe. Tbe hydraulic main is half filled with water,
and the end of tbe dip-pipe passes through this wa
ter to tbe depth of four inches. . The gas from the
retorts flows down the dip-pipe, and bubbles np
by its lightness through the water till it rests in
that part of the main above the surface of the
liquid, depositing its tar in its progress. The
water, which gradually changes its character
with this deposit, and becomes nearly all tar.
f locks tbe ras in the upper part of tbe main, and
r" f - . rr . ? -i :e
only souers it to pass ou turougo me punuers.
These purifiers, partly mechanical, partly chemi
cal, relieve the gas from the vapors of tar, am
monia, solphureted hydrogen, and carbonic acid,
and allow it to enter the gas-holder or reservoir,
pure enough for the ordinary purposes of light
ing. All the Year Round.

WOEX AT ROXK OXE MCST Do AS THE ROMANS
Do. Two Americans lately got into trouble at
Rome for forgetting to take off their hats when
the Host was carried by in procession. A corres
As the two gentlemen alluded to rendered
themselves rather conspicuous by standing erect
and covered amid the kneeling and bareheaded
spectators, one of the priests remonstrated with
them on the subject, but, finding that they would
neither withdraw nor uncover, be proceeded to
knock their hats od; a scuffle ensued, and the
priest rejoined the procession, which, making a
round, soon after returned to the same spot. The
Americans had resumed their hats and their
stand ; but the prteet, instead of condescending
to fisticuffs a second time, sent a couple of gen
darmes to remonstrate with the offenders in their
usual brutal style, indicting a staggering blow on
the breast with the butt end of a musket on one
of the travelers, and a compliment of a similar
kind on the other.
