THE BRITISH SCIEHTiSTS-NO. 7. !
Sir F. J. Brainwell, F. R. S., ,
president of the Mechanical Scieuco ,
Section, delivered an address on I
"The Triumphs of Engineering."
At their jubilee meeting in York, he
had called the attention of the sec
tion to the fact that in 18.1, when
tho Association first met in that city,
they arrived there laboriously in the
stage coach, and that practically tho
Manchester and Liverpool, the
Stockton and Darlington, and some
v few others, were the only railways
then in existence. Also, that in
1831 there were but few steamers
only 4-17 registered in the United
Kingdom. " If under this condi
tion of tilings," said he, " the pro.
position had been made in 1832 at
Oxford, as it was made in 1882 at
Southampton, that tho next meeting
but one of thisAssocialion should take
place in Montreal, the exticme prob
ability is that the proposer would have
been safely lodged in a lunatic asy
lum, for suggesting that which might
have involved a six weeks voyage out
and a four weeks' voyage back. In
183C Dr. Lardncr established to his '
own satisfaction conclusively, that no
vessel could ever steam the whole
way across the Atlantic a striking
instance of the mistakes made by
scientific speculation." Yet the
, engineer kept "pegging away," until
in 1838 the speculation was dissip
ated by the hard fact of the
".Sinus" and the '-Great West
ern " having steamed the whole way.
Thenceforward the advancement of
ocean steam navigation has contin
ued, and until the six weeks' voyage
of 1831 has been converted into but
little over six days. The possibility
of that meeting of the Association
so far from home was absolutely due
to the engineer, and that was an
appropriate timo for magnifying that
section in relation to the application
ly the engineer of electrical science.
It was within the present generation '
that electricity had passed from the
state of n somewhat neglected scion- '
title abstraction iu'o practical use. i
Its use in the land telegraph had
developed into its practicability in '
the submarine cable, and the further
application of scieuco had made a
single wiro callable of transmitting
multiple electric messages at tbs
... , -. ..,... .....T-4
same uiiiu .mil in uiiiusiiu (iiiecuuiis.
( lie proceeded as follows:
"Again, it is on the excellence
of the lighthouses and lightships
(coupled with soundings) that tho
sailor relies. These structures and
appliances arc confided to tho en
gineer, and to be elllcicnt they re
quire him to be able to apply the
teachings of optical science, and in
tho case of fogs, or as regards buoys
at night time, the science of sound.
I have alluded to soundings as one
(indeed a principal one) of the safe
guards of ships when approaching
shore. It is important in these days
of high speeds that these should be
made with case, and without the
necessity of stopping the ship or
even of diminishing iU velocity. Sir
William Thompson, by the applica
tion of tho scieuco of pneumatics,
has enabled this to bo done. Again,
most important it is that tho com
pass, amidst nil tho diillcullics at
;' tcmlnnt' upon its being" situated on
nu iron or Btccl structure, should bo
trustworthy. Ami hcto Sir AVillintu
Thompson applied tho science of
magnetism in his improved compass
to tho practical purposes of n.wiga- ,
tion. As regards the application of
the science of geology, the engineer, I
when laying out a railway, has to
consider the geological features of ,
the country to determine the angles
of his ctilt'liigs, and where it becomes '
more economical to tunnel than to
cut. Indeed, without tho applica- i
l tion of that science to cngineciing I
there nro some enterprises on tho
feasibility of which the engineer
would not be able to pronounce an
opinion. A notable instance is the
' Channel Tunnel."
Wc regret that for a second time
a pressure of matter ha crowded
out n review, in type, of the Iluxeu
iiau Monthly for November, a very
interesting number, received two
A plea for patience and forbear

more dilllcult undertaking than ho
An extiact fiom the Xorth
American Jiecimc. on morals in
polities, given in the current number
of the Aiiliciin Church Chronicle,
is of a sort of lilcraturcsmuch need
ed in this Kingdom. It demonstrates
that bteiling moral character is a
co-csscntial with intellectual ability
in the statesman.
The Advrrtincr advocates getting
out of the mud by getting into
municipal incorporation. If only
wo could I With a Government hav
ing no policy except to hold fast that
winch it has. and an Opposition
disorganized, and dreaming of what
is to follow the deluge, all practical
measures of reform arc staved off
into infinity. Gentlemen, quit non
sense and proceed to business.
The hauliug of tho El Dorado has
given the Juiouiiuu subject-matter
for one leader, and our graphic des
cription of the performance that for
another. It " shivers our timbers"
to be told that the vicinity of the
keel is not anywhere near the keel,
even " several " plants away from
it. As to the amount of ballast
aboard, our contemporary gives the
third or fourth authorized version of
it, and we verily believe wo shall
have to weigh it for ourselves to get
at tho truth. Although what the
nautical editor of the Hawaiian
docs not know about naval architec
ture may not bo worth learning,
still such Uriah Deep " 'umblcucss"
as he evinces by quoting the proverb
that " the cobbler should stick to his
last" was hardly to have been ex
pected. If his practice camo up to
liis preaching in that regard, possibly
our contemporary might go farther
and fare worse for a "skipper"
even if ho cannot tell the difference
between a paragraph and a period.
