That New "Motor.'?The alleged dis?
covery of a new motor by a Mr. Keely,
of Philadelphia, hns been exciting the
curiosity of scientific nnd unscientific
men for some time past. There nre those
who consider it not so much a new motor
fts n chimerft, which is nn assumption
formerly arrived at in regard to stcnni,
the electric telegraph, nnd ocean navi?
gation, before they were established by
actual experiment. There are others who
insist that it is the greatest discovery of
the ago, nnd is going to revolutionize the
forces now employed in industrial
progress. It is unnecessary to say
that just as sanguine expectations
have been expressed beforo of the
results of inventions which have failed
to realize tho predictions of their
patrons. Mr. Keely, we are told, how?
ever, is about to demonstrate the entiro
practicability of his discovery in its ap?
plication to a railroad train between
Camden and Jersoy City. Any expres?
sion of judgment, either for or against,
until we have this practical demonstra?
tion must be premature. The public can
afford to wait till Mr. Keely submits his
case to actual experiment. It is difficult
to convey an intelligent conception of
what the alleged new discovery is. The
motive principle is represented by tho
New York Daily Bulletin "to bo the ex?
pansive power of carbonic acid. This
important compound, under a pressure
of thirty-six atmospheres, at the tempe?
rature of thirty-two becomes liquid;
and when tho pressure which retains it
in tho liquid state is renewed, tho ra?
pidity of tho ovaporation, and the enor?
mous expansion of tho vapor, are such
as to produco a degree of cold under
which acid solidifies, forming a whito
concrete substance possessed of very ex?
traordinary properties. Prof. Faraday
was the first who liquified carbonic acid,
but it was first treated as a solid by W.
Thilonrier. At common temperature
and pressures, water absorbs its own
volume of carbonic acid; under a press?
ure of two atmospheres, it dissolves
twice its volume, and so on." An intel?
ligent correspondent of the Savannah
Xeies, who claims to have made nume?
rous and expensive experiments with it,
has no doubt of its immense power as a
mechanical agent, in proof of which he
adduces the following progressive aug?
mentation of its expansive properties by
increased temperatures: At 5 degrees
Fahrenheit the pressure in pounds per
square inch is 372; at 10 degrees Fahren?
heit tho pressure in pounds per square ]
inch is 403; at 20 degrees Fahrenheit the
pressure in pounds per square inch is
400; at 30 degrees Fahrenheit the pressure
in pounds per square inch is 500; at 40
degrees Fahrenheit the pressure in
pounds per square inch is 007; at 45 de?
grees Fahrenheit the pressure in pounds
per square inch is 1,080. Heretofore the
great scientifio difficult}- has been to
know how to utilize this wonderfully ex?
pansive power?to put the harness on it,
so to speak, and to work it, as Prof. Morse
has harnessed electricity, nnd compelled
it to carry messages. Now, Mr. Keely
claims this difficulty has at length been
conquered, and people who profess to
have patiently examined his plans, and
listened to the description of his gene- I
rator, multiplier, receiver, pipes, etc.,
are confident ho will succeed. Tho ad?
vantages claimed for it over steam and
the steam engine arc many, not tho leaBt
of which are economy, safety and easy
control. If applied to navigation the
propelling power, it is said, would not
cost more than $5 to run a steamer from
Savannah to New York; and as tho ne?
cessary machinery will not take up one
fourth part of the weight and room of a
boiler, engine and fuel, of equal power,
another advantage' would bo additional
carrying capacity and spaco for freight.
If Mr. Keely should be able to demon?
strate all that ho promises, the mills and
manufactories and tho commercial and
social progress of the world would re?
ceive a new impetns. Even steam and
electricity have failed to satisfy tko im?
patient temper and the industrial de?
mands of men, nnd if there nronny other
forces in nature which can \>e availed of,
they will be largely pressed into service.
But what is to be the lcsscnod valuo of I
all our coal Holds, if this now motor has
all the virtues claimed for it?
