Departures of Trains. Description of the Great Eastern--A
Journey Along her Main Deck.
A correspondent of the New York Timet
gives the following description of this mam
vesssl from her main deck : i .
In the extreme ancle of her bows, we find
ourselves standing two feet above the main
deok, on a wedge-shaped grating of wood,
thirty -five feet long, and tapering to twenty
leer, wide toward ua stern. P rom tins little
watchman's platform over fifty people can
look over her bulwarks at a time, while a
hundred more may have comfortable stand
ing room. Looking over her sides from a
hight of soma forty fuet as far as from the
third-story window of a city house we see
her sharp prow gracefully penetrating the
surface of the water, but we cannot trace her
hollow lines far, as her sides bulge out at a
widor angle above the water-mark. From
the enormous cat-heads, immediately aft,
iiang on eacn siue two ponderous ancnors,
from which depend a section of the massive
cables the charms on the rest-chain of the
leviathan but each link is about the size of
a dinner-platter, and the iron of which it is
forged as . lores in diameter as the toe of a
drinking goblet. Two hawse-holes, eighteen
j: i r j .ir
luuuoD m utwjuuwr, uru luriuuu ia uih very
prow of the ship, and two more on each side,
a little further baok. The oubles pass through
them. ...
Looking aft, as from houses in Tweniv-
tbird-street, away across Madison-square to
Twenty-sixth-street, for the great ship would
reach tromione of these streots to the other, we
see a vast expanse of houses, avenues, lanes,
Bpires, chimney and people, while a furlong
away are the bulwarks, and the wheel-house
in the distance. Stepping from this platform
to the main deok, we find tbe bulwarks so high
that we can not look over them, butjthey taper
down some four feet as we pass astern. Tbey
are lined throughout with oiled teak wood, re
sembling black walnut. Thirty-six feet fur
ther aft is a oapstan, the shaft of whioh passes
aown inrougn mis aecs ana two others, wnere
it may be geared if required to one of the aux
iliary engines. On all of these deoks, and on
the same shaft, is also a capstan, put in or out
of gear by a clutch, each oapstan having levers
for fifty men. . It requires the three fully man
nedone hundred and fifty men to raise the
anohor without steam-power. The engine
gearing is as large and heavy as that required
to drive a Hour mm. some ntteen teet further
baok is the first mast, a mere wooden spar,
thirty inches in diameter, with fore and aft
sails. , The standing rigging is entirely of wire
rope. '
The whole deck iBrwood, but nnder this, cov
ering a large portion of the ship, is another of
iron. The deck is here some 40 feet wide.
Next oame two immense hatohways leading to
the forecastle and the warehouses, and then the
forward donkey or hoisting engine-house, 18
by 12 feet, which is erected in the middle of tbe
deok. It contains a complete pair of steam
engines and a boiler, with hoisting apparatus,
capable of loading in merchandise on both
sides of the ship. There are at least 14 en
gines on board, exolusive of some doien ueod
only for pumping. This engine-house, like
all other houses, and all the wood-work on
deok, are of teak. We next come to the seoond
mast, which, is of hollow iron 3) feet in diame
ter, and square-rigged. Its inside is as large
as an ordinary well, and much deeper. It is
usod also as a condenser for a part of the
steam, especially that from the auxiliary en
gines. About 200 feet from the bow is another
house 30 feet wide, and extondlng some 10
feet fore and aft. This is the entrance to the
ladies' saloon, or the forward compartment of
the grand decorated saloon. It is the one
which was blown into splinters by the explo
sion, the fatal chimney being immediately be
hind it.
It will be seen behind the seoond mast. There
are four other entrances to the passenger de
partmentsall nearly alike. They are some
seven and a-half feet high, paved with oolored
tiles. The inside is painted to resemble a light
oak, and the ceiling i, light blue with gilt
stars. The stairway consists of seventeen easy
Bteps, with a clear space of four feet in width.
The balustrades are of teak, spiral, and veiy
graoeful. . Wide green leather-covered seats
surround the sides of the building. There is a
second flight of stairs below these. From this
entrance, in the middle of the ship, a raised
sky-light deck, two feet high and thirty wide,
extends back about eighty-five feet. The area
is equal to that of a large oity house. Near
its corners are four shafts or iron boxes, four
feet square, with iron ladders, extending to
the bottom of the ship, into the boiler-rooms or
moke-holes. . l'ou look over into them as from
the roof of a five-story house into a narrow
street below.
Tboy lead to the fatal cavern where the poor
fellows were) soalded to death at the time of the
explosion, and you see the grim figures of men
flitting about in the lurid glare of the furnace
fires. At the back end of this raised deck, just
forward of the paddle-boxes, is the after-en-tranoe
to the decorated saloon. The descrip
tion of the forward entrance applies to it also,
as well as to all the others. Through the mid
dle of this raised deok protrude tbe two paddle
engine chimneys, from the four forward boil
ers. They are about six and a half feet in
diameter, and some thirty feet high, but their
total hight from the fires is above seventy-five
feet. On each side of the same deck, parallel
to the length of the ship, is a row of skylights,
five feet wide, shaped like the gable end of a
house. They throw a flood of light into the
grand saloon, and, in fine weather, all that is
required into the saloon below it. The clear
space on each side of the raised deok, between
it and the bulwarks, averages eighteen feet in
width, and it affords an nnbroken promenade
nearly an eighth of a mile long, and as wide
as an ordinary parlor.
Behind the after-entrance to the grand saloon
rises the iron mainmast, square rigged. The
middle portion of the dock here is covered with
various arrangements for belaying-ropes, &e.,
and with skylights to the engineers' rooms
below. Immediately in front of it, nine feet
high, is a bridge extending between the out
sides of the paddle-boxes. It is one hundred
and twenty feet long and three feet wide.
Stairs lead up to it near eaoh caddle-box.
The bridge is also carried along the insides of
tue paaaia-Doxes, wnicn rise some eighteen
feet from the deck, and immediately behind
them is another cross bridge like the first, all
together giving a walk round of some three
hundred feet. Here and on the wheel-houses
the officers are stationed to give orders. Bells
oommunioate to the screw and paddle-engine
rooms, and an apparatus, yet to be described,
to the man at the helm. By a door at the side
we oan look in at the great wheel itself. And
what a tremendous, but light expanse of rods
it is, with its network of red arms and braces,
and its thirty huge floats, thirtoen feet long
and three feet deep. Unlike moat paddle
wheels, its shaft has no outside bearing on the
guard, bnt is wholly supported by a trreat
journal at the side of the ship. The weight of
tne center box is sixteen tuns mat or a small
locomotive and the weight of the whole wheel
three hundred and fifty tons that of a small
ship. The diameter of the wheel, as is well
knows, is fifty-eight feet. Fancy the pair
rolling down Fifth Avenue at the rate at whioh
thoy will turn twenty miles an hour filling
np the roadway and overtopping the houses!
jay-Recent papers announce the death of
mr. Jr.awara James xnayer, lately the li-rector-Qoneral
of tho Postofflce in France,
and a member of tbe Imperial Senate. M.
Thayer was a son of the late Jamea Thayer,
a native of Rhode Island, and a lineal de
scendant of Roger Williams, the founder of
Jtoode island; :
How Louis Napoleon Wooed, but Did
Not Win.
It may beinterestiug, says the Uomt Journal,
to re-publish the following extraot from a con
versation with Feniinore Cooper, la 18t5, re
corded at the time by Mr. Willis, then In Paris:
I was calling upon Lafayette one day (said
Mr. Coopvr) and was let in by bis confidential
servant, w ho, it struok me, ihowed, signs of
having something to oouceal. He said his
master was at home, and, after a moment's
hesitation, ntade way for me to go up, ad usual,
to his private room but I saw there wts some
embarrassment. I walked in, aud found tbe
General alone. He reooived me with the same
cordiality as ever, but Inquired with some
eagerness who let me in, and whether I met an
ola acquaintance g'oing out. I told him that
his servant had admitted mo, and that there
was something peont'iar in tho man's manner;
but as I had seen no one else, 1 knew nothing
more.
"Ah," said the CrenArul, "that follow put him
in the side-room. Sit jlown, and I will tell
you. Prince Louis Napoleon Bonaparte was
here two minutes ego!"
"I expressed my surpriax?, of course, for this
was in 1833, when it was do ath for a Bonaparte
to enter France.
, " 'Yes continued the Gei leral, 'and he oame
with a proposition. He wishes to marry my
granddaughter Clementine, unite the Republi
can is ts and Imperialists, and make himself
Emperor, and make my granddaughter Em
press?' " 'And, if it be not an indesent question,' I
said, 'what was your answer, my dear Gen
eralT' " 'I told him,' said Latayette, 'that my
family had the American no tion on that sub
ject, and chose husbands for themselves that
there was the young lady be might go court
her, and if she liked him, I had no objection.'
Mr. Cooper did not tell us (for of course he
did not know) how the Prince plied his wooing,
nor why he failed. The fair Clementine, who
.thus, possibly, lost her chance of being an
Empress, married M. do Beaumont, and now
represents her rejected admirer as the French
Embassadress at the Court of Austria. Shortly
after this visit to Lafayette, Mr. Cooper was
in London, and mentioned to the Princess (the
widow of the elder brother of the President of
France) this venture of Prince Louis into the
den of the Orleanists. 'He is mad!' was the
only reply."
A Sleeping-Car Incident.
The Milwaukie Nvi tells the following
incident, which was witnessed by a friend in
sleeping-oar on the Detroit and Milwaukie
Road:
The car was nearly full, nnd in one of the
compartments was a maiden lady, noither
fat nor fair, but forty, who was wonderfully
exercised at her close proximity to some
naughty men, who were much amused at her
nervoueness. Looking about her with side
long glances, and shrugs of disgust, she
finally mustered curage to put on her "night
cap," which operation was almost too much
for her. This feat accomplished, she again
cant frightened glances at her eurroundors,
obviously afraid to proceed further. At this
juncture the conductor came in, whom she
immediately button-holed, and, in whispers,
heard in the remotest part of the cur, she
indignantly interrogated him t know if there
were no curtains "iu the house." "Certainly,
madam," said tbe affable Conductor, who
hastened to procure some, at which she ap
peared exceedingly grateful. They were soon
drawn, and she proceeded to make herself as
comfortable as the nature of the circum
stances allowed.
But she was destined to enjoy very little
ropose, for every new comor in pursuit of
quarters, who passed her crib, would inquir
ingly draw her curtain to see if it was occu
pied, when a smothered scream would issue
ibrth, which caused an instantaneous drop
ping of "the rag," when t he persecuted dam
sel would subside for a moment, only to be
aroused on the arrival of some new place
hunter. As this process continued during
the night, amid the occasional guffaws of the
spectators, it may be imagined that the poor
victim obtained very little satisfaction for her
fifty cents outlay, and that she internally
vowed never to plaoe herself in a like predic
ament again.
Fesdino Horskb. Tho practice of regula
ting the ijood of horses by the amount of
work they are required perform is a good
one if properly followed. For expmple, a
horse when lying comparatively idle, aa in
winter, should have less solid food than amid
the hard work of spring and summer. Again,
if a horse i'b about to be put to work of extra
labor, it is well to fortify him for it by a little
extra feeding beforehand. But the mistake
wo reior to iij me practice oi over-teeaing
him an hour or so before putting him to
work. If an extra sorvico is required of the
horee on any particular day, and en extra
feed is given to him, have it in the evening
beforehand, rather than in the morning an
hour or two before being put to work. Why
so? Becauso if he iB put to work so soon after
eating, his food does not become digested, and
he is obliged to carry about with him a masB
of undigested fodder, which is rather a bur
den than a help to him. If he is well fed
the evening before, the food is assimilated
changed to flesh and blood and sends health
and vigor through all tho system. As a gen
eral rule, a working; horse should be fed reg
ularly, both as to time and amount.
Crikoliki and Ciqar8. Hoops and widely
extended skirts are going out of fashion in
Paris. A short time since a melancholy case
occurred, the result if which may doubtless
be attributed to the ridiculous fashion which
has prevailed too long already. A young
English lady, recently married, was residing
with her husband in the Champs Ely sees.
He had just lit a oigar, and had thrown the
match into the fire-place, when his wife,
who was going out with him, went np to the
pier-glass to take the last look at her dress,
when the skirt caught with the match, and
in a second she was in a blaze. Her husband,
of course, endeavored to smother tbe flames,
but without effect, and was himself horribly
burnt. His yonng and beautiful wife lin
gered two or three days in frightful agony
and died. Cigars and crinoline may divide
between them theoonsequences of this fright
ful accident. .
Usi op Pafis Among tbi Jafariss. The
number of uses to which paper is pot among
the Japanese is perfectly wonderful. With the
aid of varnish and skillful painting they make
of it excellent trunks, tobacoo bags, oigar
eases, saddles, telesoope oases, frames for mioro
soopes, and water-proof coats, the latter really
keeping out the rain, and are as supple as the
best mackintosh. They nse neither silk nor
cotton handkerdhiefa, towels, or dusters; paper
in their hands serves as an excellent substi
tute. The inner walls of many of tbeir houses
are nothing more than painted paper screens,
and their windows are covered with a fine
translucent description of the same material.
If a shop-keeper has a parcel to tie up, he
takes a strip of paper, rolls it quickly between
his hands, and uses it for the purpose, and it
is quite as strong as the ordinary string used
among us. One of the stipulations for the
bride, in a marriage contract, is always that
she ahall have a certain quantity of paper al
lowed her.

Senator Hale on Harper's Ferry.
CHICAGO, October 31.
Senator Hale publishes a letter in the iVesa
and Tribimt, this morning, in reference to the
attempt of the New York Btrald to Implicate
him in the Harper's Ferry inaurrection.
He says that he will not undertake the task
of vindicating other gentlemen whose names
are montioned, but so far a relates to himself,
he can only reply by denying every word and
syllable, pronounce the whole from beginning
to end as false, and challenging the world for
a particle of testimony, written or printed, sus
taining the charge thus made.
He never had knowledge or intimation from
any one that an insurrection or outbreak was
contemplated by John Brown or any one elfe
in Virginia or olsewhere. He pledges himself,
if evidence is laid before the Grand Jury of
Maryland or Virginia, and they find a bill, to
go there for trial.

New Cure for Lock-jaw.
The statistics of Dr. Guallaon tetanus brings
to mind that I have not yet referred to the al
leged disoovery of a remedy for this terrible
afieotion. Dr. Vella, of Turin, conceived the
idea this summer in treating a ease of look
jaw, of administering as an experiment, the
ourarina, a powerfully poisonous alkaloid ob
tained from the Woorara-tree (Latiotloma
Ourart) of Sonth America. This poison was
first, I believe, brought to the notice of Euro
pean lamni by the late Prince Charles Buona
parte, who four or five years ago made elabor
ate experiments with it in this oity, aided by
young Dr. John W. Green, of New York.
These experiments proved that while this sub
stanoe was a powerful fosnotie absorbed into
the blood through abrasions of the skin, its
effeots were much less notable if ingested into
the stomach and submitted to the aotion of the
gastric juice.
Moreover, it was discovered that when thus
ingested, this substance acted direetly upon the
nervous system, and more particularly upon
tho motor nerves, dotermining an absolute re
laxation of the musoular contractions under
the oontrol of these nerves. This quality of
the curare was remarked by Dr. Veils, and
suggested to bim the idea of employing it In
the treatment of tetanus. His first and only
experiment thus far was suosesyful. But
tetanus somi times yields to other remedies,
and sometimes terminates favorably with
out the use of any remedies; so that the Academy
of Medicine of PariB, to whom was addressed
the observations of the Italian surgeon, re
fused to accept tie turan as a speciPo for this
terrible disease, nntii further experiments had
been made. Threo other experiments have
since been made, two of whioh failed and one
succeeded, and aa these experiments will be
largely multiplied, we shall soon know what
estimate to place upon the discovery of Dr.
Vella. PantLttUr to Nno YorhTinu.
Senator Douglas on Judge Black.
Senator Douglas has written a lenarthv re
joinder to Attorney B lack's views of his ar-
uole on Popular Sovereignty. Mr. Douglas
enters into the subject, arguing with great
force in favor of the position whioh he origin
ally assumed. Authorities are extensively
quoted to sustain his views. In conclusion,
he repels with much indignation the charge
preferred by the Attorney-General, that he is
a hard-working oandidate for the Presidency,
and says that at his time of life he would much
prefer to finish out his term in the Senate,
with the ohanoe which he has of a re-election,
to being nominated for a four-years' Presiden
tial tern.
