Detbmt Tunnel. The experimental
borings tor a site for the proj :cteil tunnel
under the tiver at Detroit have now virtual
ly been concluded. Not only have tbe in
vest'gations proven tbo entire practicability
of'liiii itupcrtan: project in question, but
lt:e physical faii,r-s of all tbe sitrraindiogs
relating Is tho question cf its mcej.aful
consiuimation aro found to be all thatcould
bo desired. Tho main channel runs close
to tiiu Canadian tiiiore, which is t ha only
feature iu the who 0 enterprise iu which the
least change cjul.l be wivied ler. involving
as it mint the irceesily of a long e.aV.vi
tion upon tb'.t shore, as the tunnel cannot
comtnenco too ascent until the deepest wa
ter is passed. The greatest de,ih of water
is found about 1,200 feet, fnjin shore, where
it is about 43 foet, upon the Detroit side.
Tbe depth ubovo named (43 feet) umy be
considered the maximum, except sofar us it
is varied by boles. The depth of the bor
iius is CS fi el from the surface. The
aouudiugs of the rivr vary somewhat from
those which biveboen made under t!ie aus
pices ol government, but this is very natu
ral iu view ot the difficulty of t king accu

of these bonds nibbed to Dr. Carlton, with
misery in his Countenance, to know what bo
should do. Tbo Doctor quietly usked him
how many bomls ho held. '-Ten thousand
doilars," replied the frightened victim,
"and it's ail I have in tho world, I'm a

you'.'" usked tiio Doctor. "Yes, hero they
are," bo replied. "Well, sir," said t!io
Doctor, l'il give you my cnock for the
a'liouutor' tlieiu. And I will lhauk you to
say to anybody else whom you may meet
having claims of any kind .igain it tills Con
cern, that they will bo paid on preeu'a

asked tho astonished bondholder. "As
good is they ever were," replied the Doe
tor. "And bas.i't tho concern been heavily
bwiaiiie-i?" .ot that I Know ot, rerncit
the Doctor, "at.d if it lias been swindl 'd in

A Novel Ram.ro vd TI10 latest novelty
in railroading, the practicability of which
has heen thoroughly demonstrated in
France, 1s that of n single track railway, j
The novel fealure or the invention consists
of a single rail, like a long ribbon, extend
ing along ono side of the ro.id. . One wheel
placed nt the forward pirt alone bears on
the rail, whilo the other two rest on the
ground. The cars are lurnisbed with two
wheels, placed underneatb in their lun
axis, wblch rest on the rail and support
thoir weight, while two other wheels, des
tined to preserve their equilibrium, aro
placed on tho outside. The experiment
with n lilipulinn locomotive, drawing a se
ries of cars carrying sixteen petsons. each,
is thus described: The track was nbont
I nir miles long. While th? train wns run ning
Rt a speed of ten miles an hour, it
reached a grade of f.irty feet to the mile,
which it aseeiuh d -iitnmit nny nppnren'
slackening t.f speed. Tbe lirst result was
coucIu.mvo in f.ivor of tho systenT proponed,
as it showed beyond a doubt tho possibility
of overcoming t'.m difficulties Inherent to the
ascent of very steep grades A portion o!
th: road f resented a series of very short
curves, of a radius of only sixly-ffvo feet;
thesu t!,e train followed with marvolous
smoothness and regularity. On tne return
trip thi brakes were si perfectly adj iHed
that the velocity on tbo r,ipid descents was
kept even at nil times. For local purposes
the sys'om seems to be well adapted. The
locomotive ued un tho occasion weighed
only three tons. The cost ol such a line in

bad ro'.-uUrly passed down the list to the
