before yesterday, the 7th, I called on M.
Daguerre, at his rooms in the Diorama, to
see these admirable results.
"They are produced on a metallie sur
face, the principal pieces about 7 inches
by 5, and they resemble aquatint engrav
ings, for the they are in simple chiaro
oscuro, and not in colors. But the ex
quisite minuteness of the delineation can
not be conceived. No painting or en
graving ever approached it. For ex
ample: In a view up the street, a distant
sign would be perceived, and the eye could
just discern that there were lines of letters
upon them, but so minute as not to be
read with the naked eye. By the assist
ance of a powerful lens. which magnified
50 times, applied to the delineation, every
letter was clearly and distinctly legible,
and on were also the minutest breaks and
lines in the walls of the liuildings, and
the pavements of the street. The effect
of the lens upon the picture was in a
great degree like that of the telescope in
"Objects moving are not impressible.
The Boulevard, so constantly filled with
a moving throng of pedestrians and carria
ges. was perfectly solitary, except an in
dividual who was having his boots brush
ed. His feet were compelled, of course,
to be stationary for some time, one being
on the box of the foot black, and the other
on the ground. Consequently his boots
and legs are all - well defined, but he is
without body or head, because these were
"The impressions of interior views are
Rembrandt perfected. One of Mr. D.'s
plates is an impression of a- spider. The
spider was not bigger than the head of a
large pin, but the image, magnified by the
solar microscope to the size of the palm of
the hand, having been impressed on the
plate. and examined through a lens, was
farther magnified. and showed a minute
ness of organization hitherto not seen to
exist. You perceive how this discovery
is. therefore, about to open a new field of
research in the depth of microscopic na
ture. We are soon to see if the minute
has discoverable limits. The naturalist
is to have a new kingdom to explore, as
much beyond the microscope, as the mi
croscope in beyond the naked eye.
"But I am near the end of my paper,
and I have unhappily to give a melan
choly close to my account of this ingenious
discovery. M. Daguerre appointed yester
day at noon to see my telegraph. He
camegand passed more than an hour with
me, expressing himself highly gratified
at its operation. But while he was thus
employed, the great building of the Dio
rama, with his own house, all *his beauti
ful works, his valuable notes, and papers,
the labor of years of experiment, were
unknown to him, at that moment becom
ing the prey of the flamOs.- His secret
indeed is still safe with him, but the steps
of his progress in the disiovery,and Lis
vluable researches in science are lost to
the world. I learn that his Diorama was
insured, but to what extent I knov not.
I am sure all the friends of science and
improvement will unite in expressing the
deepest sympathy in M. Daguerre's loss,
and the sincere hope that such a liberal
sum will be awarded him .by his Govern
ment. as shall enable him in some degree
at fiaato'ric'ver from his loss."
(n- tre'sarie vessel which brought the
above letter, the writer himself arrived.
From him we have received some addi
tional information respecting this very in
teresting' discovery, which we cannot at
present communicate. We have only
room to say, that we are even more im
pressed with the value of the invention as
a means of procuring, without labor. or ex
pense, perfect and, satisfactory panoramas
of all the most interesting lalces and
scenery on the globe, and, if. we appre
hend its power correctly, perfect represen
tations of the human countenance, than
with its power to reveal the secrets of "mi
croscopic nature." With what delight
will the eye dwell on the panoramas of
and other cities of the old world, deline
ated with the unerring fidelity of the Da
guerrotype? With what interest shall we
visit the gallery of portraits of distinguish.
ed men of all countries, drawn, not with
man's feeble, false, and flattering pencil,
but with the powerand trnth of light from
heaven! it may not be lung before we.
shall witness in this city, the exhibition of
such panoramas and such ,portraits.
Greal Western Stear Company.--A half
yearly general meeting of the proprietors of
the Great Western steam ship Company
was held in Prince's street, Bristol. last
week. Mr. Maze took the chair. Mr.
Claxton read the report, which stated that
the company'sfirst ship had disproved all
unfavorable auguries, and promptly re war
-ded the enterprise of the projectors. It
was impossible to speak too highly of the
qualities of the Great Western steam ship;
.fter having run 35-.000 nautical miles,
and encountered 36 days of heavy gales,
her seams required no caulking, and when
she was docked she did not show a wrinkle
in her copper. The av'erage of her pas
sage out was 15 1-2 days, home 13 days;
the shortest passage out was 14 1-2 days,
and the shortest home 12 1-4. About 1,
bo0 passengers had gone in the ship.
After alluding to the great expense neces
sary to.combinetspeed, security,, and en
joyment, it expressed a hope. that
through the liberality of the American
Congress, the duty of 2d. per bushel on
coals would be given up, and thus a saving
of nearly ?1000 a year would he effected.*
The company have decidedon constructing
their next vessel of iron, for which the
preparations are far advanced. It a ppear
ed from the statement of accounts, that af
paying 2,0001 for additions to the ship, and
msurancete October next, 1,5001 for goods
damaged in the hurricanes in October last,
and upwards of 2,0001 being set apart as
a reserve fund, there remained from the.
profits sufficient for a dividend of 5 per
cent., making with the former one ,of 4
per cent.,9 per cent. for the year. The
report was ananimoisly adopted.

SOLAnt GAs LionT.-This new inven
tion was lately made by Th nas Mad, of
-London, and proves how little our Phi
losopihers dream of what is hid in heav
en and earth. The doctrine of the four
elemenis has long fallen to the grounl.
but the primeval causes placed in their
stead, are daily taken to pieces and new
ones substituted,,till more immaterial and
indefinat.le than the ones last known.
Lavoisier decomposed water into two
kinds of air, hydrogen and oxygen. Mad
has discovered that these two are the pro
ducers of both light and heat; and that con
sequently water will burn. He conduct
ed steam into the point of a flame of such
a heat that it ignited, and continued so ig
nite by its own power without the aid of
the first auxilliary. The heat which was
produced, was enormous and the light
only trifling, but the moment lie put a wire
of Platina into the flame. its light became
equal to three hundred candles. Con
ducting this fatne-upon a cylinder of chalk
the light became so intense that it could
only tie seen through dyed glasses,and heing
equal to that of the Sun,.he unmid it so
lar gas light. Mail has forthwith taken
a pateet and obtained perusission to con
struct a solar gas light at the new Ex
change which is building in London, and
he also is building a tower in St. Peters
burg. which will light that city like the
Sun at mid noon. The sensation which
is produced by this invention is enornious,
the shares of the gas companies have fallen
from 70 to 15 per cent, and the oil ier
chants have petitioned government to de
lay the introductioinof the new invention
for-12 months, so as to enable them to dis
pose of their stocks Mad'retains as his
secret the manner of igniting the steam.
QUEEN VIcToRIA -The Richmond
Enquirer publishes a letter from Mr. Ste
venson, our Minister to Great Britain. in
which he describes the person, appear
ance and hatits of the .Queen of Great
Britain. Mr. Stevenson writes from op
portunities of close and frequent observa
tion, which few persons, even of the high.
est rank in the kingdom, can have had.
Of the Queen, I suppose you will ex
pect me to say something, and expre's my
opinion. The press in both countries gives
the most flattering accounts of her beauty,
wisdom, &c. Indeed, it is the fashion
here'to represent her'(as I suppoSe they
do all Queens) as something short only
of the Divinity. Now I will tell you very
frankly what I think of her, and I had a
fair opportunity of judging. As to her
person and lace they are pretiy fairly re
presented in many of the numerous paint
ings and prints, some of which I suppose
you have seen. Sully's I think as good
and-pleasing a likeness as any that has
been taken. It has been sent to Phila
delphia. None of theta, however, do jus
tice to the .expression of the face. It is
certainly not the sort I should ca!l beauti
ful-but, when lightened up by animatei
conversation, the face is full of expression
and sweetness, and strongly indicative of
character. Her manners ate bland and
unaffected; indeed, there is a simplicity
and frankness and engaging atlability
about her, quite remarkable for a Queen.
Another striking thing is, the total ab
sence of all ambitious display or desire for
admiration, which might be expected froni
so young a person, and she a Sovereign.
No one can approach the present Queen
withoti being struck, not only with her
easy and charming deportment, and that
peculiar softiess of disposition and tem
per, for which she is so remarkable, bi
with the entire self command and repose
of manner which might he expected io
guard a Sovereign of more ad vanced years
and experience. She has, besides, all the
characteristic bon naturel and good tem
per of the English.
In relation to the Queen's personal hab
its, I understand she rises between 8 and
9, breakfasts at 10, devotes herself to busi
ness till 2, then exercises, on horse back,
and that at a rapid pace, going at the raie
of 10 or 12 miles an hour. Of her horse
manship 1 had an opportunity of judging.
having myself been present in onec of her
excursions of 20 miles in 2 hours; and I
can assure you, if she does not ride like
Ctesar, or hunt like Diana, she is yet one
of the boldest and finest female riders I
Her attention to business is such, that I
understand, if adespatch comes while she
is at dinner, she commonly rised and at
tends to it. She has a tarn and capacity
for business, and will, as she advances,
doubtless take even a deeper interest in
afl'airs of state than she does at present.
IZSOENtoUs IIvEN'Tlo.-By the com
mon mode of taking a cast of the H uman
Face, or Form, the weight angl construc
tion of the wet plaster not only renders
the process disagreeable, but imperfect,
especially in representing the features: for
the muscles of the face become rigid, and
the physiognomical expression of a praster
mask is sullen and painful in consequence.
These defects are entirely obviated by the
niew machine, which consists of a verttcal
disc wibose saface is composed of an al
most innumerable quantity of very fine
steel wires or needles, as close together as
the hairs of a brush, moving in two plates
perforated with a corresponding numbsr
of holes, with so much ease that the points
yield to the slighest pressure. Into -tbis
surface the face is gently pushed and by'a
most simple and ingenious contrivance the
whole of the needles af-e in an instant fixed
securely,their surfaces presenting a concave
mould of the face. Plaster is then ponred
in, the wires being so dlose that the liquid
cannot escape between them, and when set
hard, a working mould is taken from it, in
which other casts are made. So instatnta
neous is the operation, andi so delicate the.
conttructionI of the mechanism, that the
face ofre crying child is taken with all its
muscular contortions, and -were any per
son to keep open his eyes, the eyehall
would not be injured, and a stiff beard of
t wo days growth would be marked in the
Election for Congress in Illinois.-By
an act, passed by the legislature of Illinois,
the election of members of Congress is
deferred until 1841. This was done, in
the hope that before that time~the new ap
pointment would have been made, when
Illinois will doubtless have at least five,
nrobabily seven members.
The Innocence of the sub- Treasuv
scheme admitted by the Whig.-The Rich
mond Whi5, endeavoring to persuade Mr
Widson of Cumberland that there is noth
ing essential in the Sub-Treasury to-sepa
rate hin rroi Whiggery, says:
.&The Sub- Treasury Scheme-a mere
child of Legislation, t hich may be tried
one year and discarded the next, and
which, to try, or not to try at all, does not
infringe upon the Constitution-does nut,
unless by indiscretion, nor of necessity,
touch those radical questions either of
principle, or aty honest practieni adminis
tration of the government. which as they
are favorably or unfavorably resolved, de
termino the problem of our experiment
in free Governmeut."
This is exactly true of the measure pro
posed by the Adininistration. If the Gov
ernment cannot get along in the manage
ment of its Onanees without the Bank
power, the attetupt being "tried one year
may he discarded the next:" and this does
not "infringe upon the Constitution."
Hut how is it with the scheme of the
Whigs anti Conservatives? Break down
the present Republican Administration
and instal Henry Clay. Then we have
a National Hank of unlimited powers es
inblished-filty millions capital-50 years
Iharter-branches in every State. The
Const.itution is inlringed, annd irrepealuble
vested right-s fastened like a yoke, onl the
!ountt rv, which cannot "hte tried one year
and discarded the next." This is the
state of the case which makes Mr. W;i
ion's ditfereuce with the Whigs essential.
From the Army and Nary Chronicle.
The government of Peru is at present
