WE PUBLISH the following letter by request :
Messrs. Editors :-Having lately received, as
from the hands of a second Creator, a precious
gift, of, which I had long been deprived, I desire
to make a public acknowledgment of my grati?
tude. It is about seven years ago since a cataract
bogan to form itself over my eyes, incapacitating
me for any employment. In a comparatively short
Bpace of time I became totally blind.
The reputation aB an oculist which Dr. Chisoim,
of this city, has added to his many triumphs in ?he
moro delicate 'and difficult departments of hia
noble profession, induaad me to apply to him.
By thiH gentleman the operation, which led to
the restoration of my sight was performed with a
hand as gentle as it waa skilful: and I owe it, un?
der Providence, to him, and to his kind, watcbiul
and unwearied attention, that I can now peruse
once moro in my age the Book in which the healer
of a deeper blindness is revealed.
Dr. Chisolm needs no recommendations from
any one. Ee stands too high in the opinion of
the public, and of his scientific brethren, to be
served by the representations of the unlearned.
I havo penned this brief communication in no
hope of adding to his great reputation, but with
the simple desire of at once testifying my sense bf
the obligation under which Dr. Chi' olm has'plac?
ed me, and of directing the attention of those who
may ba afflicted, aa ? was, to a perfectly trust?
Maa. SA BAH L. WALDBON.
I A TERRIBLE F?IEABM:.-Tho Government is now
having mado at Hartford, Conn,, one hundred bat
I tery guns of a new invention. Fifty of thom will
j have a one-inch bore and the balance one-half inch
j bore. The gun ia quito a curiosity to look at. The
' main characteristics of this terrible weapon is that
it has a series of barrels, with a carrier and lock
cylinder, rigidly fastened to tho main shaft, and
rotating simultaneously and continuously by means
of a crank, tho cartridges boing fed into tho carrier
from the feed hoxcB, thenc : driving endwiso into
tho roar ends of the barrols, thon exploded and tho
empty cartridge cases withdrawn, without any
pause in tho operation. The incessant loading and
firing aro produced by tho simplest kind of mech?
anism, there being less parts about the gnn than
in tho Springfield musket. This gun can bo dis?
charge i at the rato of two hundred shots por min?
ute. Ono of its featuros is that thero is no recoil
which can affect the accuracy of tho aim. "Whon
tho gun is once sighted at a given object, tho samo
aim can bo maintained at the will of tho operator
until thousands of discharges take place.
A lateral train motion of the gun may bo kept
up. if desired, while tho gun is being discharged,
so that a perfect sheet of balls can bc made to
sweep a section of any circle within its range. As
there is no escapo bf gas at the breach, all the
force of the powder is expended in giviug velocity
to the balk A consideration which is claimed to
be of tho very first importance in this gun, is that
every cartridge must be either discharged or with?
drawn from the barrels, thus precluding such re
sultsAs were shown on the battle-field of Gettys?
burg, where, of thc 28,574 muskets collected after
tho battle, 24,000 were found to bo loadbd, 12,000
of thom containing two loads each, and 6000 being
charged with from three to ten loads each, the
cartridges oftentimes being loaded without break?
ing them, and many inserted with tho ball down
first. The fran is light and easily transported.
One of the sizes now being made at the armory
discharges 58-100 inch cahbre balls, and weighs
225 pounds. Thc other size discharges balls of
one inch cahbre (nine ounces in weight), and
weighs between 500 and 6^0 pounds. Thc first
named has a range of about one mile, and the lat?
ter upward of two miles.
STRANGE, YET Tatra_A gentleman in the lower
part of this city has a splendid milch cow. She
ordinarily gives from two to three gallons at a
milking. It is a remarkable fact that for the last
two months she has given more milk in cold wea?
ther than in warm. VVhon the weather is cold her
milk is abundant, but when it moderates her sup?
ply is reduced down frequently to less than a quart.
This rom rkablo freak attracted tho notice of her
owner several weeks ago, and over since he has
been sedulously trying to divine the cause. At
first ho thought she was milked by other parties
than members of his family, but as the cow was
confined in a lot adjoining his reaidenco, and close?
ly watched, he became satisfied no person other
than some one of his family milked her.
During the recent extreme cold weather,
her milk was abundant, but yesterday even?
ing ( tho weather having very much
moderated), she failed entirely. This morn?
ing he was up early determined if possible to learn
the cause of the failure. He had hardly entered
the cow yard, before hia attention was attracted to
a rustling noise in soma chunks near the stable.
Presently he saw a huge snake emerge from
underneath tho stable and crawl up to his favorite
milker and deliberately begin stripping her teats.
Thc snake was at least five feet long, and as large
as a man's arm at the shoulder. It was what is
known as a cow snake. The mystery was now ex?
plained. In cold weather the snake lies dormant,
hybernating, but when the weather gets warm he
emerges from his winter quarters. The gentleman
attempted to kill the snake but failed. It ran back
underthe stable, where it now securely hes, gorg?
ed with its favorite beverage.
Tho gentleman who relates this snake story is
one of our most respected citizens, and vouches for
its truth.-New Albany Ledger.
A Zanesville paper gives currency to the follow?
ing: A young lady, while promenading the streets
some days ago, suddenly fainted, was-picked up
and carried into a dwelling house near at hand,
where a physician was summoned, who removed
only eleven pairs of stocking legs and one pair of
hose before he succeeded in restoring circulation
through her calves and bringing thom back to a
state of sensibility.

IMPORTANT TO SHIPOWNERS.-Congress, at its last
session, passed an act, approved July 25, 18GG, by
which it is enacted "that all aea-going vessels car?
rying passengers shall have the LIFE BOATS RE?
QUIRED BY LAW provided with suitable boat
disongaging apparatus, so arranged as to allow such
boats to bo safely launched, with their comple?
ments of passengers, whilo such vessels are under
speed or otherwise, and so as to allow such disengaging
apparatus to be operated by one person disengaging both
ends of the boat simultaneously from the tackles, by
which it may bo lowored to tho water." The decision of
the Solicitor of the Treasury, sustained by the Depaflfc
mont, is that this law does not apcly to vessels othor than
thoso propelled wholly or in part by steam.
The attention of Shipowners and others interested is
called to the law, and to the importance of complying
with its provisions. The Inspectors of Steamboats will
be required to report any violation of tho Act of Con?
By order of the Secretary of the Treasury.
