STA.--The chwn'es ;,ccouiplished
throughout the civilized world, by the dis
coverv .and application of stean to arts
'sciences and nattfactories, are so truly
wonderful, ais to be almost beyond belief.
In travel alone, this great agent has ef
rected the most astonishimg results. This
is fully apparent, even in connection with
ourown city. & its various avenues ofcom
muunicatiou north an-I south. For example,
we a day or two since mentioned the arri
val of a gentleman from Boston adistauce
-or320 miles in 22 hours! He trtvelled the
whole way either by steamboat or rail
road, and in both instances was propelled
by the agency of steam So with regard
-to the south; any one may step into the
Baltimore boat at 7 o'clock iii the morn
ing and be in Norfolk Va. before 7 the
iext morning. Indeed the trip has fi-e
quently been aceomplished in 22 hours,
'while passengers have been able to tarry
-an hour or so, at Baltimore.
Could our forefitthers, of the olden time
start up from their dust, ad contemplate
these %vonderful changes in travel and its
facilities, their surprise would he extraordi
nary indeed. Less than a century ago,
.the trip either between Philadelphia and
Boston, or Philadelphia and Norfolk,
could not have been accomplished by
the ordinary conveyances, in munch less
than s fortnight. But, if we turn our
eyes so the west, and especially to the
Mississippi river, the power of steam as an
-agent will be realized in a still more won
-drous manner. Now, hundreds of b-oats
with thousands of passengers,are constant
ly passing and repassing the turbid waters
'of the Father of Rivers. and touching at
points in the course of a few days, tiat in
*the olden time occupied weeks.nay no :ths
-io reach in an upward voyage And so
indeed, throughout the greater portion of
It is now said that Jerusalem may be
reached by an American Traveller, via
Bristol in the G-eat Western, Paris, M ar
seilles, and Joppa. in thirtv three days!
These are but few of the feats that may
be accomplished, so far a travel is cou
-cerned, and with cUm)at;ative care and
safety. And yet the history of the past
is calculated to make the impressiont that
the progress of steam and its utility are
-only in their infancy, and that a century
bence will unfold still more extraordina
ry' wonders. A late number ofthe Lou
do,, Quarterly Review, contains an article
upos the subject, in which many inter
eting facts are grouped together. "Ar
rangements ate in progress for.contituing
the British trade across the Isthiru of
Darien with steamers, which are to ply
-on the great Pacific oceao,hetween Valpa
raiso and Panama, a distance of about
2,500 miles. By this means, the voyage
round Cape Horn toLima, which has hith
erto occupied about four m..nths, will be
reduced to about thirty lays!" In the
31editerrauean, steam vessels are used by
Christians,Jews and Turks, while as-early
as 102M1, a steamer made four succes-ful
voyages between "Bombay and Suez.
The Irish sea, German Ocean, and the
British Channel, are traversed by steai
ers, while in the American rivers and lakes
there cannot be less than 1000 steamers in
In reference to the last important enter
prise, as connected with steam, we mean
the establishment of packets between tihe
old and new worlds-the greatest trip otn
record was recently made hv the Great
Western. The distance betveen Bristol
and New York is 3150 geographic miles,
the whole of which was accomplished in
]3 days and 7 hours. In limtle more 'han
a fortnight, several British oflicers dined
in the oltd worl.t,at their barracks, in Wool.

.tel in Baltimore-having in that brie.f
period, passed aeross the ocean, ands thro'
New York atnd Philadelphia' Thes Great
Western is 240 feet in length. Site has
two eugines of 225 horse power each.
Her cylinders are 73.3 inches in dliameter,
'nmd yet she is quite a smoall vessel whetn
compared with several others cotnst tuctetd,
or in process of constrttction. The British
Queen, for example, is believed to lie the
largest steatmer in the world. Iler length
of keel is 233 feet. E xtreme length 275
feet. Breadth of beam 40 feet. 'Inclu
ding guards 65 feet. Depth of hold 2^
feet. Tonnage 1,862 tons. Diameter of

The Gorgon is the largest steam shtip
in the British navy. Shte is 1150 tons,
and carries 20 clays coal, and stores ror six

Another Patriot of the Revolution gone.
-The venerable Colonel, William Alston
lied, in the city of Charleston on the 261

At the commencement of the Revolu

Af Mr. Jeffer-on, lie was prevailed upon to
lelld the weight of his name and influence
to the party of which Mr.Jefferson was the
head. le accordingly served for several
years as a membter of the Senate of the

hetween Jefferson and Adams. lie soon

fron that period devoted himselt'exclusive
Iy to his private affairs. It is as a Caroli

interests anIl honor, and best hopes of the
State-That Col. Alston was chiefly dis
tinguished. Whether we estimate his
claims to public consideration, by his extra
ordinary success, tle admirable treatnent
of his slaves, of a wise practical system of
economy and good management, Col.
Alton stood almost at the head of the class
to which he he longed. It is believed that
at the time of his death, he was. with per
h:aps a single exception, the largest slave
holder in South Carnlina-u. Comnencing
life witha coamparatively a small numbaher o'f
slaves, he went on steadily additng to huis
stock, until they luad multiplied many fid..

H is rule was to pros ide thetm with diwel
