' PoTTSvitts, May 21.
Your correspondent was informed on Friday
tbat the Reading Company had chartered a spe
cial train to take a party of gentlemen up Into
the coal regions yesterday. He had scarcely
been made aware of this fact before he also re
celved a card of invitation, which it was deter
mined to accept. This invitation was also ex
tended to Chief Engineer Graoff and the Water
Committee of the Councils of Philadelphia by
Colonel Barton II. Jenks, President of the Hy
drostatic and Hydraulic Company of Pennsyl
vania. The object of the visit was to witness
the operations ot a compound propeller pump
300 feet long and 8 inches diameter. This inven
tion throws up 1600 gallons of water per minute,
and is placed in Glen Carbon colliery by the com
pany above named. The invitation stated that the
train would leave the depot at Thlrtceeth and
Callowhlll at exactly half-past 7 o'clock In the
morning. Tour correspondent determined to
meet it at Reading, and for that purpose was on
hand when it rolled into the station In that city.
From Philadelphia to this . point the
cars containing the party had been
attached to the regular train, but now
TIIET WERE CUT LOOSE,
and a special engine attached which would run
the party through in less than it would take to
Bay Jack Robinson backwards. After a stoppage
of about ten minutes, perhaps more, the shrill
whistle of the engine sounded, a few groans
were heard, and we were off, I now had time to
take a look at the gentlemen present, and find
out what company I was in. First of all I
took notice of the eight members of the Water
Committee, this important committee of the
Philadelphia Councils numbers eighteen members
nine from each branch and were as follows:
Messrs. Mcllvaln, Devlne, Nead, Brlggs, Glass,
Dorian, Rowan, Charlton. Besides these gentle
men there were Strickland Kneass, of the Sur
vey Department, General Robert Patterson, the
old hero of many hard-fought battles, especially
gastronomic ones, Colonel Barton H. Jenks,
President of the Hydrostatic and Hydraulic
Company, Joseph G. Mitchell, George J. Rich
ardson, Dr. L. R. Koecker, Thomas Shaw, the
inventor, John Eisenbrey, Jr., Lewis Cooper,
General Lansing, Gustavus S. Benson, Samuel H.
Rothermel, Jay Cooke, Judge Ryan, and a num
ber of mining engineers and coal operators.
The time whiled away pleasantly until Glen
Carbon colliery, In Schuylkill county, was
reached, which was about half-past 12 o'clock.
Here the train stopped, and
TUB PARTY ALIGHTED
and began to make tracks for the colliery just
mentioned, which was about half a mile off over
a rough road. But under the excellent guidance
of Messrs. Mitchell, Jenks, and William II.
Bines, Superintendent of the Mine nill Railroad,
the distance (a half mile) was soon overcome,
and our destination was reached; for which we
were very glad, as the snn was very hot. Now
this wonderful propeller pump which we had
been invited about a hundred miles to see was
In successful operation at the Glen Carbon col
liery, leased by John Lucas & Co. from the
Richardson estate. Upon reaching the large
shaft, from beneath which those who delve in
the bowels of the earth disappear at stated in
tervals, we found the pump
IN SUCCESSFUL OPERATION
and running beautifullv. The party, to the
number of about fifty, immediately began to
Inspect its workings, and were, from the expres
sions of approbation heard on every side, per
fectly satisfied that it could do even more than
its manufacturers claimed for it. Although this
pump, or one built on the same principle, has
heretofore been fully described in The Tele
graph, still I will give another account of its
operations which may have a few more facts.
This pump is really an elevator. Its peculiar
features are a cast iron pipe about 8 inches in
diameter and 300 feet long, cast in longitudinal
sections, and bolted together, each section being
6 feet in length. In the Intervals
BETWEEN THESE SECTIONS
are shorter ones a foot long, constructed in the
same manner, with bearings supporting a shaft
made of steel one and three-fourth Inches in
diameter, extending the entire length of the
pipe. Monnted on this shaft, at intervals of
about three feet, are screw-propellers, with two
blades seven and a half inches in diameter, with
an angular pitch of sixty-five degrees, and re
volving with the shaft. Midway between these
' propellers, and attached to the walls of the pipe,
are wings or blades of the same pitch and form
as the blades of the propellers, but of a reverse
- ancle. At the lower end of the elevator Is a
DaBrLcl Or cuaru Ul ctUJk-iruu, lu picvcub diiuucb,
coal, or other obstructions from passing into the
pipes. The top of the elevator has a spout or
nozzle to direct the stream of water as it passes
out, above which is a contrivance to support
the weight of the shaft, with its propellers and
the column of water.
There is a disc about sixteen inches in di
ameter secured permanently to the top of the
pipe, upon which rests
RING OF BRASS, '
about twelve inches in diameter, on top of which
Is another disc about fourteen inches in diame
ter, and embracing the outer periphery of the
brass ring. This upper disc is permanently
secured to the propeller shaft. By means of a
small donkey pump water is forced between the
two discs under sufficient pressure to slightly
separate them, so that the top disc, propeller
shaft, and column of water are supported by the
film of water between ihem, and thus the rota
tion of the propeller shaft revolving on the
water causes only a very small amount of
The donkey pump receives the water from a
small tank or barrel, and any surplus water
forced between the discs raises the ring of brass,
and is discharged back into the same tank. The
propeller 6haft is revolved by a wire rope pass
ing around a groove pulley above the upper
disc, and which is driven by a steam engine.
On revolving the Bhaft a
CONSTANT AND SOLID STREAM
of water flows from the elevator at the rate of
1600 gallons per minute the propeller lifting
the water on to the etatienary wings or blades
above it. by which it is supported, and from
which it is taken by the next succeeding pro-
pellar, and so on until the water is discharged,
thua avoiding all valves or complicated ma-
Th advantages claimed for this elevator are,
.nnnmT In cost and running expenses, great
.(mriiPitv and durability, small amount of frio
ability to lift large bodies of water to
any height with the smallest expenditure of
power. This elevator appears to be peculiarly
adapted for deep mines, where large quantities
of water are to be raised, and they can be made

in examining the workings ot the Durao. fire

and see for themselves why the miners came
np from work more like negroes than white
men. The coal from the mine was running up
and down the shaft along the Inclined railway
qnlte rapidly, and we (your correspondent was
of the party) had to wait for some time before
the car was ready to receive us. Finally the time
arrived. A number of the party secured miners'
hats, with the little oil lamps attached. Others
carried the lumps, and discarded the hats; but
all buttoned up to keep out the dust. After we
had all secured positions on the car, the bell was
rang both above and below, and Immediately we
began to descend. Down, down we went into
the very bowels of the earth. It takes us about
a minute to make the descent, a distance of six
hundred feet. At the half-way point a' light
from the top can be barely seen, but beyond this
ALL IS DARK AND GLOOMY.
Upon reaching the bottom we feel bewildered
and are afraid to move. We stand still until
our eyes become accustomed to the inky dark
ness, rendered visible by the little lamp which
each miner carries in his peculiar hat. After
we have become a little accustomed to men and
things "in the world beneath," we are taken in
charge by Mr. Lucas and a miner secured for
the occasion, and we start on our tour of inspec
tion. We pass through a long hall cut out of
solid rock and enter into a paseage some 300
feet In length. There is coal all around, on
every side. These long tunnels or passages are
supported by huge timbers to prevent their
caving. At different points along these passages
were manholes, one of which, was ex
plored by a member of our party. We visited
these passages and penetrated to their furthest
limits, and saw the miners boring to blast and
Increase the length of the huge tunnels. And to
CONTINUE FROM DAT TO DAT,
working far away from God's sunlight and all
the blessings which it brings. But there was no
time to moralize, as we had been down over an
hour, and the rest of the party were doubtless
awaiting us on the train. The cur soon made
its appearance, and we secured positions upon
it. We were about giving the order to arise
when the miners gathered around and gently
hinted that It was customary for all strangers to
pay their footing. We had nothing to do but
to comply with this gentle reminder, and we did
so, and left them thanking us for our generosity.
Again we are on the way to the earth.'and the
fame time is consumed to reach the surface as it
took to go beneath it. Soon the glad sunlight
appears once more at the opening above us, and
we rapidly approach the surface. At last we are
free, and we jump from the car which bore us
down and back again, with
A FEELING OF RELIEF
to think we were once more on old mother
Earth. A f ter a thorough washing at a house
hard by we found that our friends had gone in
before, and were anxiously awaiting our arrival
on the train. After our ablutions we at once
took the nearest road to the cars, which were
waiting. Onr subterranean party were at once
ushered into the excursion car and regaled with a
cool glass of champagne, which was truly en
joyed after the walk through the hot sun. This
car was then closed by order, and the cooks and
waiters left to themselves to prepare the dinner.
After we had secured seats in the other cars
THE TRAIN STARTED,
and ran down the road about ten miles to a cool
spot, where it was halted and dinner served.
This repast was really a fine one, and thoroughly
enjoyed by every one present. After every one
had partaken of as much as he desired, the
wine was handed out, and each one partook as
he deemed advisable. After dinner all retired
to the other cars, lit their cigars, and took a
siesta for about an hour. This was about three
o'clock: An hour afterwards the majority of
the party were called into the rear car, when,
on motion of Mr. John Eisenbrey, Jr., that
a meeting be called, and suggested General
Robert Patterson as chairman, which was of
course agreed to. The General, upon taking the
chair, thanked those present, and, on a motion,
appointed a committee to draft
expressive of the feelings of those who had
been present. After a short retirement the
committee presented the following:

General Patterson. Gustavus Benson, Mr. Pome-
roy, of 8chnylklll county; George W. Cole, of
Tamaqua; J. G. Mitchell, of Philadelphia;
Strickland Kneass, Chief Engineer and Sur
veyor, and others. Their remarks dwelt largely
upon the wants of the coal regions, and the
peculiar adaptation of this pump to meet the
desires of the operators. The Impression left
upon every one present was of the most favora
ble character, and we congratulate the Inventor
of the pump and the Hydrostatic and Hydraulic
Company, owners of the same, upon tbe great
success achieved by the trip. Daring all this
time the train was gradually
APPROACHING THE CITT,
and one town after another was passed. On
reaching rhanlxvlne there was a large acces
sion to the passengers. General Joshua T.
Owen and General Harry White here came
aboard and rode down with the party. The
city was reached at a late hour, the party sepa
rated for their homes, each one satisfied with
the day's operation.
