The Yankee Clock-Maker.
BY DR ALCOTT.
Forty-five year Afro, a plain-looking mnn,
of few words, but of great mechanical inge
nuity, bought an old grist-mill in Plymouth,
I the couth-eastern extremity of Litrhflcid
county, In (.'onm-niciii, oml converted it into

Terry was, ere long, nhlu to manufacture, not
only one thousnnd clocks n yenr, hut several
llmuennd! Hut his exnmple awnkened a
world of Yankee enterprise, which find
hitherto Iwen sleeping. They could not be
content to let plain Eli Terry make his thou
snnils of dollars a year, while, they only made
three dollnrs a ilayi nml hence ouo after
another, in the contiguous places nlluded to,
Ihey found their wny into tiiu snuie employ

Itriatnl anil Wnterhnry. It extended to W'n
tertown, Litchfield, llnrwintnn, Southington,
ud Aleriden. The clocks, moreover, were
peddled nil over tho Tinted Suites,
Mr. Terry soon sold nut his t'sliihliidimrnt
to Belli Thoiiui nml Silas Homily, two en
terprising young mechanics, who, niter milk
ing such dinners nml adopting such improve
ments as ennhled ihcin to manufacture runny
thousands of clocks in a ycar.srpnrn'cd, like
Abraham and Lot, nml each hnd a fuctory ol
his own. Mr. Homily remained on the old
siiot, where he nunlc clocks very many years,
but sugciiucnily cutlery; while Mr.Tlmmne,

quite a city, lie t:ot only contrives to mnn

other things. Perhaps he has done more
good for a quarter of a century post llinnnny

nml his sons continued in the business until
the dentil of the father, which happened only
a few yenra since. He wns more fortunate

but for tho truth of ibis statement 1 cannot
vouch, ns the htisim-ss had been carried on
at that limn by machinery about twelve yenrs,
In nny event, however, Mr. Jerome, with bis
coadjutors, nil of whom I personally knew,

indeed fallen, but not g really. It wns reserved

Mr. Jerome, nenrly thirty yenrs ago, re
moved from Plymouth to ltristol, where be
remained until nine or leu yenrs ngo, w hen
be removed to New Haven, where be still

fortune ; but, like Ihn failed Dioomux thnt

some time past, I believe, bis material for'

know that wooden clucks nre now made.
. Beside bis fuctory in New Haven, which
employs nearly a hundred and fifty hnnds,
Mr. Jerome employs much more thnn number

and bis commodity is scattered all over the
country and I might sny nil over the civil

It is curious lo observe what remits some
time follow from llioelPirtsof u single man
as "tall onk fiom little aeorn grow."
How many social circles in the United Stnles,
in California, Oregon, Peru, England, Conlincnlal

BY A CORRESPONDENT OF THE COTTON PLANT.
A I sit in my garret hero (in Washington,)
watching the oourss of great mor. and thodosti
ny of party, I meet often with strange contra
diction in this eventful life. The most remark
ablo was that of J. Howard Tsyne, author
"Sweet Home. " I knew him personally. Ho
occupied tht rooms under ma for soma time,
and his conversation was so esptivating that I
have often spent whole day in hi apartment.
II was an applicant for office at th time Con.
sulot Tunis from which he had been removed.
What a sad thing it was to sea the poet sub
jected to all the humiliation of ofHce-secking.
Of an evening ho would walk along tha streets,
looking into the lighted parlors as we pssscd.
Once in a while wa woutd seo som family cir

that wo would both stop and then pass silently
nn. On such occasions ho would give me a his
tory of his wsnderings ; hi trials, and all the
cares Incident to his sensitive nature nnd pover
ty. " How often, " said ho once, ' I have been
in the heart of Taris, Berlin, London, or somo
other city, and heard persons singing, or tho
hand organ playing Sweot Homo, ' without a
shilling to buy the next meal, or a place to put

hood. My country ho turned mo ruthlessly

complain of his helpless lot. His Only wish
was to dio in a foreign land ; to bo buried by

Cold Water Safely Steam Eugine.
Wo insert below n correct 'description of
tins invention, iriven liv Mr. I ionell lho in.
ventor himself : Cm. Uol. If'etkly.
1. (t is dcnominnled the Cold wafer Safety
Stentn Engine, liecnuse the etenm is gene
rated by injection of cold wnter into denied
gonerntors, without n boiler, nnd convened
into highly rnrified stentn inslnntnneoustv,
which nets immediately on the piston in Ihe
working cylinder, a in Ihe ordinary mnimer.
I. J he ceuerntnra ore lormeil by pulling
one cylinder within nnother, to create two
highly hented surfaces within Hie distance ol
one-sixteenth of an inch npnrt. At lho low
er end of the extemnl cylinder there is nt-
Inelied a lurge solid block or iron, which
mny be round or square, about eighteen or
twenty inches long, standing nt riulit angles
to the external cylinder, culled the font of
the generator. About the middle of tin
is placed a lube, very thick nnd strong, com
municating with a bole in tho dot, which
leads In tha spnee or aurlaco between the
two cylinders. This tube I lho chnrge to
receive the wnter ns it is injected. This foot
and lube is tho only pnrt in the fire, which
ia kept very but, and made very thick lo pre
vent burning out, and lo maintain on inex
haustible fund of beat, so thnt thn quantity
of wnter required nt every stroke of the pis
ion shall not cool it down below 400 degrees
of bent fur high steam ; it mny bo as high
ns COO, or as low ns 212, but the power of
the engine will vnry in proportion.
There lire two generators required to con
stitute one engine; they stand vertically in
an iron frntne, resting upon a brick founda
tion, with lho feet thereof so nrrnnged in the
fire a lo become equally heated. Thn bunt
from tho furnace below is made to pns
through the internal cylinders, and nrnuud
the external cylinders, heating bot!i surfaces
to n high degree.
On the top of these tubes sits the injection
valves, so constructed a lo measure, the wn
ter nt every stroke of lho piston, nccordittg
to lho velocity of Ihe engine, i e, if she rims
fast, less water is injected ; if slowly, mnro
ia is injected. This liinns a complete gov-
eruor, and regulates ihe speed. The wnter,
when so injected, is immediately closed in
Ihe charger, by mi action of the vulvo which
can never Iml il well built ; tin is by the
intense bent ol the loot driven immediately
into lho lliin space netween the two cylin-
lers forming lho denied surface, where it is
insintitnneously converted into steam.
Near lho ton of these gnnmntors nre two
tubes, standing out from tho furnnce nt right
imglcs, upon thesa ore bolted fast the work
ing cylinders, in a horizontal position, to
which ia attached the machinery, ns in the
ordinary engine by double crank. The
stentn enter the working cylinder at this
point through tho lubes, driving ihe nisloii
out, and asenpes, leaving nothing behind to
cause an explosion or tha leoat dancer,
ISow let us txnmine this principle in a
philosophical manner ', much jins been said
aliout it ; and various are the opinion bused
upon sound scientitic principles, and perfect
ly practicable; it is nn invention of great
magnitude, and should be examined without
prejudice. Thut it absolutely runs nnd quit
regularly, keeping up thn heat at the same
time ia not denied. Tha question then
stands ia it a commendable, and n power
ful aa Ilia ordinary engine, if an. Ericison
mny quit, and the Queen City boa beaten
The inventor to prove lliia fuel, demon
strnie tha iiriuciplo of the old engine times:
For example, he show thai there must lie n
much water injected into the boiler, as is
HvaKruleil mtosleam.nnd passed oil through
tne working cylinder, liy this, ha shows
that il thnt wnter was converted into steam
without a boiler, instantaneously, and com
pelled to force ita existence into the cylinder
by Ilia departure of lho piston, tha powers
would be Ihe same, and much greater if the
heat wa greater, aa in hi angina there ia no
pnee or vacuum fur the steam to form it
existence but in the working cylinder.
Now Ibis i perfectly consistent with the
law ol nature nml i found renson, Tho
water ia measured at every stroke of . the
piston by an equal pressure, by ita specific
J gravity and according lo the lime. The valve
opened nnd closed by tha velocity of the
engine which govern tha amount of heat.
The valve and tha aperture through which
the water passes, ha states, muat agree with
the generator in their amount of heat and
the cubical contents of Ihe working cylinders.
For example, if the working cylinder con
tain one cubical foot, there must be one
cubienl inch of water injected, and the gen
erator must correspond lo the amount of
heat required. This lie states csn only be
done by experiments ; which he is now mnk
ing. Tho fuel required bo confidently be
lieves will not be more thnn one-bnlf ns in
the ordinnry mnnncr. This engine he sny
will not occupy more thnn one-half the spnee
of the, present engine. This, together with
perfect snlety, must be a great desiderntuin.
If. gentlemen interested in such objects,
particularly those connected with the press,
examine the mo lei machine nnd see how it
works, it will, we are well assured, atTord
