A4 Valuable Suggestion.-Whilst the
steamner Hibernia was going up the Ohio
river to Wheeling, sotme dlays ag'., she
grounded in atbous eightt feet water.. The
ice on her bottomn having become very
thick, it was suggested to turn the scatpe
pipe ito tier hold, wheni the steam after
,.tne time completely thawed the ice off.
antd the boat proceedted on her wvay. In
tloiciag this fact the Pittshurg Gazette
mtakes the foitowrine remarks:
"The idea of turning the steam inito
the hol to clear her bottom tof ice, is. we
believe, qtiite new. A gentleman latrgely
interest ed in bioats, to whom we meriotned
the eircums'ance. tlnought i would be a1
great improvemenit if all steamers were
furnished with a pipe through which the
holtd couild at an' moment he filled with
steam. It occurretd to him on the Pales
tine, when a fire "roke out in .her hotd, on
'lie Mississippi Some irom which wvas
lying in the bottomn, became heated,
atnd when water was thrown upon it, thie
vapor created altmost instantaneously ex
tinguished the fire. If in case of fire in
the hold the hatches were batteniled down
andi the steam turtned iin, it is chiion's that
it must be- irrmediately smotheredf unless
the dleek or side were -so far injured as 19
allow the steaum-to.escape. This is war
thy the consideration of steamboat owners
