Terrific. Typhoon ia China Loss of
The Cape Ilace telegram briefly referred
to a tenifio typhoon which visited soiuo
of the principal ' cities in China. Tbe
Hong Kong Trait Rqvtt, cf August 10,
gives full particulars as follows :
A typhoon of unprecedented violence
swept over Hong Kong, Mecao, Canton
and Whampoaon Sunday, July 27, lsG2,
committing dreadful ravages on property,
and being the cause of the death of no
less than 40,(XX) lives. The center pass
ovr CaiituM mi vi tiaiuiwa. Maooa
did hot have il quite so strong, and Hong
Kong, escaped with a stiff "gale, which
simply caused a few ships in the harbor
to foul one another.
The most peculiar feature in this ter
rific scourge is the short time it lasted,
and the extraordinary high tide eight
feet higher than usual. ,
Mr. Max Wengler, of the firm of Messrs.
Courja!i, Uubcner A Co., was drowned by
the capsizing of his boat in the harbor.
Two other house-boats capsized and
lost ; crews saved.
Several houses belonging to Chinese
fell down, causing the death of many of
their inmates. Hong Kong may be con
sidered as having come off well.
CASUALTIES IN MACAO.
Whole fleets of West Coast boats are
ost. Ia the inner harbor of Macao alone
one hundred oil, sugar and other boats,
have been lost. The fast boats, oa their
passage from Hong Kong to Macao, were
lost one of them with sixty souls on
board. The Piaya Grande is completely
destroyed, and the damage to houses,
gardens, verandahs, 6Vc, considerable.
Ihe American shin Comet was at an
chor in the outer Koads, laden with a
cargo for New York. The class stood as
follows on board :
The sympiesometer touched 27 deg. 16
sec: the most sensitive marine barome
ter 27 deg. 50 sec; the lower marine
barometer 29 deg. We hear that another
capUia in the lioads reports his marine
barometer as low as ZS deg. 40 seo.
The loss cf life in the inner harbor
alone was seven hundred.
CASUALTIES IN WHAMPOA.
New Town and Bamboo Town, two
villages forming part and parcel of
Whampoa, aro one mass of ruins hardly
a native nouse is standing.
The custom house chop was capsized
wittt nine lute waiter (Europeans) in
her, four of whom .were. drowai;-fce '
Itthol vao B-rnashed to pieces ; nearly all
the chops went on shore. After the gale
was over, no sampans could be seen and
laborers were not to be had. The loss of
life in Whampoa is estimated at 6ix thou
sand. . , .
CASUALTIES IN (ANTON.
With few exceptions 'the river was
clean swept of all its dower boats, hong
boat, and every other kind of boat
houses fell and killed people by the
hundred large junks broken adrift and
canto tuunuerinr up the river, doinrr
much damage to the ohameen Site and
the houses along the shore. It is esti
mated that forty thousand lives have
been lost in Canton and its vicinity
The mandarins are giving one dollar for

Ilalaohite and Works of Art.
If copper were as unoxydizable when
exposed to tbe atmosphere as gold or sir
ver, it would be esteemed one of the most
beautiful as it is one of tho most useful
metals. When polished, it is of a deep
reddish color, but i! soon becomes dull,
owing to a portion of its surface com
bining chemically wilh the oxygen of the
moist atmosphere, aad forming a thin
greenish coating. This green oxide is
copper rust. Some of the ores of copper
are exceedingly beautifully, especially
the green and blue carbonates, the
former called "malachite." It usually
accompanies tho ores of copper, but it
has been found in the largest masses, and
groatost abundance in certain mines in
Siberia; and Kussia is the only country
which has attained distinction for the
manufacture of articles from it. Sir
Koderick Murchison, the eminent geolo
etiU, who has examined the Russian
mines, supposes that this carbonate of
copper was once m a liqnid state, and
that it gradually solidified by alow drop-
ninir. l.very mass of it seems to have
been grouped around a center, in nearly
concentric layers, and according to the
varying richness ot the solution at ditluf
eut periods during dronpicz, tho con
ceritric layers varying in dark and light
tints of beautiful green. The masses of
malachite found ia tho Sib ri.ni mine
aro general of a rounded form. This
mineral is softer than marble, but it is
ninth heavier; quite brilliant, and its
ureeit ti.its have a Hilkr appearance. It

L Wonderful Invention, j
In the Zollvereiri Department of the in
ternational Exhibiliaa has . just been
placed a wonderful piece of mechanism,
only a few days from Hanover. All our
readers know the difficulty of awkening
early in order to catch ft morning train.
Hero is apiece of mechanism which will
not only ring a gentle alarum to rouse
light sleepers, bnt it will at the sanie
tirac strike a light for a lamp, and an
other to boil a cup of coffee. If tho first
alarum bo not enough, a louder one w ill
follow sufficiently sonorous to awaken tho
dead. If even this should prove insuf
ficient, the mechanism will, after ft short
interval pull off the night-cap, if the
sleeper wears one ; and in the almost im
possible case of ft continued slumber after
all this, the machine, as if disgusted at
such laziness, will tilt the sleeper out on
the lloor. In fact, the mechanism does
everything almost but shout the hour in
the sleeper's ear. An extraordinary
amount of ingenuity has been expended
upon this combination ef clockwork, and
springs, lucifcrs, nd levers. . ...
We copy the above fronj one. of our
foreign exchanges. This invention is no
touch to one made and patented in this
country, and illustrated on page 32, Vol.
Al. (old series) Scientific American. In
stead of going through the process of
coaxing and ca olinar the sleeper to
arouse, the Yankee invention referred to
by one operation lips the sleeper out of
bed, thus avoiding all the useless and
complicated details specified above. The
Zollverein invention, however' is the
more polite one of the two, and is, no
doubt, better adapted to operate on per
sons of nervous tendencies Scientific

Substitutes for Cotton.
The Government now uses for twine.
for postaf purposes, flax instead of cotton.
The material is stronger and safer than
cotton twine, and a hundred yards more
to the pound is produced. The railioads
are alsojusing thin iron roofs fr their ps-aenger-1
ars instead of cotton, ami base-
wood shavings instead of cotton f r their
packing. Gradually, if the w ar foes on,

Some Tacts about Newspapers.
I think it was Burke who laid of '
" newspaper circulations," that they wer
in his day, even, " a more important in
strtimeutof tho popular intliigence Ihatt
was generally imagined." Ths writri
of these papers, he added, are indeedrfe
the great part, cither unknown or ia con
tempt, but ihey aro like ft battery in
which the stroke of one ball produce
no effect, but tho amount of continued,
repetition is decisive. Let us suffer any
person to tell us his story, morning and
evening, but for ft twelvemonth, aad he
will become our master."
