agraph which appeared in the Lebanon (Te.)
JLrtdd stating that J. J. Crittenden had been
in that place, and declined tbe use of his
name in connection with the nomination for
the Presidency. The Herald had reference to
Mr. Crittenden of "WHoon county, Tenu.. and
not to the inveterate place hunter of Ken

delivered a lecture in New York, on the lliUi

J. mix A. Washington, contemplated removing
the remains of his illuxtrious kinsman, he in
troduced tbe following extract of a letter
from Mr. V.:
'-The charges made in the slips of newspa-jkj-s
you have inclosed to me that I wished
or designed to remove the remains of (Jen.

are simply ridiculous falsehood. The pro
hibition of the removal of Gen. Washington's

I isisted upon having inserted in the charter
and in the contract; and my d etermination to
make no contract without this prohibition
seemed at one time almost an insnp rable !
stacle to making any arrangements whatever
with the Association, but tbe opposite parties
were obliged to yield to this iK:nt, or not
make any contract with me for the purchase
of Mount Vernon."
Xlie Sew American Cyclopaedia.
The third volume of this highly successful
oi k has been for some days before us. It is
excellent in various ways. Its positive, in
trinsic merits are great, win re the preceding
volumes were good it is better and it indi
cates such an increasing editorial watchful
necs and ability as to warrant high expecta
tions of the publication as a whole. We con
fess rurselves not a little interested in the
" proper execution of the ta.-k which Messrs.
Kiplkt and Dana have assumed; and we won
der somewhat at the indifference shown by a
few of our more influential contemporaries
toward a work which will be inevitably
look d upon as a fair exponent of tbe stan
dard of American attainment in the various
dfpartmcnts of science and letters.
The prcscut volume, although the third of
fifteen, is occupied by only a part of the let
ter It. from Beam lo Browning; and this
renews an apprehension which we have before
vxprssed, that iu the middle and latter vol
umes the articles will necesearily be subjec
ted to disproportionate curtailment. Th.
editors however must now be fully awake to
this danger, and prepared for it; but if they
do produce a work entirely symmetrical in
this respect, it will be the first time, we
believe, that sucb a feat has been accomplish
ed, in a serial publication, within the compass
of a predetermined nunilier of volumes.
Should a curtailment be found necessary, it
may be made with most propriety and advan
tage in tbe department of American biogra
phy. We know that it is intended and with
great fitness that the Xew American Vydoptx
dia shall le quite full in this department; and
we would not see one jot of its particularity
iu this respect diminished wiib regard to those
who have achieved an honorable distinction
in any walk of life, or attached their names
inseparably to any great interest, or even re
commended an excessive reticence as to jier
sous who have attained a bad eminence. 15ut
the editors might with advantage be much
more exclusive than they are What, fur in
stance, is the claim of L'kkstox S. I ! rooks to
nearly halfa page in auy cyelopa-dia?
But we turn to some of the mauy note
worthy articles in the present volume. Pro
minent among these is that on Benttty, which
presents with great clearness all the various
theories of the beautiful that have been ad
vanced from the time of Plato to that of
- IIeoel; and which, if its definition that

delight to the B'sthetic faculty," le unsatis

The article, BilU, gives an admirable des
cription of the sec red volume, and a very
comprehensive though compact bistory of the
vicissitudes through which its t xl Las pas
sed during many centuries and in various
toiigucs. With irudence and not a little
skill, it keeps entirely clear of all tbe doc
triual and practical questions with which the
subject would seem to In? inextricably involv
ed. A Jew or a Christian, and among
Christians, an ultramontane Uoman Catholic
or a Unitarian of tlic tuoet latitudinal iau
views, may rend the article, and find iu it no
ground of oitenci. except perbtps iu the
wmissiou of something that would provoke
the reaentinent of tbe holder of au opposite
creed. Tlie articles Bihmgrnpho and BtUta

with tbe fruits ot wide and various study.
Tbe former contains au enumeration of tb
most valuable works in its department which
may be consulted with great profit by p ntons
who are afflicted with tbe Incurable disease
treated of in tbe latter. The cognate article

While npon this subject we revert to the
euggestion in onr remark npon the articles
Baron and Bach in the second volume, that
they might possibly becompelled from foreign
sources unknown to us. When we surmise
that this mlglit be the case, we had in mem
ory certain passages of a too modest Preface
and Prw'ftectns. and were ignorant that al
though an existing authorities are conf-ulted,
every Yticle in this Cyclopaedia is written
specially for if. We are glad to be able to
iVe credit where it is due for two of the fin
est articles of their kind that we have met
with. That on Bacon presents a new and
profound view of his character; and the one
on tbe Bauhs gives an unequalled account of
that remarkable family which bears so impor
tant a part in .the history of music. . -
Among t'ic very few errors which we have
noticed in tb present volume is the perpetua
tion in the article on Beheading, of the popu
lar notion, that lr. Gnr.i.oTix pcrif-bed by the
Instrument of death which he invented. This
is a mistake: Gi'iuxrrrx died quietly in his

who for good or for ill, has exerted an influ

rangement of articles with the same title ac

ond titles, and the carefully m ule Index to
each volume make this Cyclopanlia peculiarly
easy of reference. X. Y. Chur. Sr Enq.
Xlie Atlautic Telegraph How tt will
The Battekt to bb Used in Teleobapuino.
The primary source of the iufiuence which
will be charged with the service of the At
lantic Telegraphy will be a giant voltaic
battery of ten capacious cells, which may be
appropriately termed the "Wbitehouse Lami
nated or perpetual Maintenance Battery.' on
account of the one marked peculiarity which
especially fits it for the employment it is de-
sijrned for. This battery is made upon th
Smee principle, so far as the adoption of pla
tinized silver and zinc for its plates is con
cerned; but it differs from every form of con
bination that has hitherto been in use, in hav
ing the plates of each cell so subdivided into
subordinate portions, that any oue ot these
may be taken away from the rest for the pur
pose of renewal or repair, without the action
of the rest of the excited surface of the cell
lieign suspended for a single inomeut. The
battery, in fact may Ihj entirely renewed a
hundred times without its ojM-rution having
been troubled with even a pa-sintr intermission.
So long us a fair amount of attention is given
to the renewal of its zinc element, piece meal,
it is indeed literally exhaust less and perma;
nent. This very desirable quality is secured
by a singularly simple and ingenious con
trivance, iiiece.i ltscir is torineu ot a qua
drangular ' trou ah ot gutta perch a, wood
strengthened outside, in which dilute acid is
contained, the proportion of acid to water
being oue part in fitteen or sixteen. There
are grooves in the gutta p: rcha Into whi h
several metal plates slide in a vertical posi
tion. These plates are silver and zinc alter
nately, but they art not pairs of plates in an
electrical sense. Eieh zinc plate rests firmly
at the bottom on a loni bar of zinc, which
runs from end to end of the trough, and thus
virtually unites the whole into one continuous
extent of zinc, presenting not less than 2,000
square inches of excitable surface to the ex
Each silver plate hangs in a similar way
from a metalic bar, which runs from end to
end of the trough above, the whole of the
silver being thus virtually united into one
continuous surface of equal extent to the
face of the zinc. The zinc docs not reach
so high us the upper longitudinal bar, and
the silver does not hang down as low as the
inferior longitudinal bar. The buttery is thus
compos; d of a single pair of laminated plates
although to the eye it seems to be made up
of sewral pairs of plates.
Nature has set the example of arranging
extended surfaces .into reduplicating folds
when it is required that such surface shall be
packed away in a narrow space at the same
time that a large acting area is preserved, in
the laminated antennas of the cock-chafer,
antenna;, indeed, are the types of the White
bouse battery. If any one of these redupli
cate segments of either kind of metal is re
moved, the remaining portion continues its
action steadily, the eff -ct merely being the
same that would be produced if a fragment of
an ordimuy pair of plates were temporarily
cutaway. TJe silver lamina fire of consider
able thickness, and securely "platiuate" all
over that is. platinum is thrown down upon
their surfaces in a compact metalic form, and
not merely in the black pulverulent state;
consequently they are almost exempt from
wear. Each zinc lamina is withdrawn as soon
as it amalgamation is injuriously affected, or
so soon as its own substance is mainly eaten
away by the action ot the chemical inenstrum
in which it is emerssd, and a freshly amalga
mated, or new zinc lamina, is inserted into
its own place. The capability of the piece
meal renewal of the consumptive element of
the battery into this interpolatory and frag
mentary way, is then the cause of its "perjet
ual maintaining' power. Tbe intensity of a
vottaic arrangement depends upon the num
ber of its pairs of plates, or cells. If, iu the
exp rimetit, the intensity of the electricity
bad been increased, without Soy alteration of
quantity, merely by multiplying the nuiuWr
of the cells engaged or by some analogous
modification ot instrumental agency, the body
which rtsisted the current of the batterv with
such complete eff' ct would have leen flashed
through and burnt up. like a fragment ot
metal that had inferior powers of resistance.
Tkaxsmissiox or the Cvurext. The pri
mary voltaic current procured iroin wis
battery, will he used to "stimulate and ' call
up ' energies of those fleeter messengers,
electrical in nature, by the aid of which alone
can the message be expedited. The voltaic
current therefore passed to a silk-covered
wire, in innumerable coils, enveloping a bar
of soft iron immediately sheathed iu gutta
percha. Several miles of thisjline wire (So
20) are twined altout this iron centre; then
comes another coat of gutta-percha, theu
another coil of wire, thicker this time, (No.
14,) and miles in length. The voltaic
current, passing through the wires, aud
reaching iron core, converts it into a power
ful maguet, exciting a current of electricity
which i d-livered to the No. 20 coil and
thence to the cable, whence it d parts on its
Transatlantic voyagn. Electricity having
thus produced iu the first instance magnet
ism, and raugnctii tn having reproduced elec
tricity, a trausmissive power is obtaiued,
which the orignsl currnt did not possess.
' Tiib Ueckivixo Instki'mknt. The tran
missioit current generated iu these double iu
duclion coils, on reaching the further side of
the Atlantic, will ot course have become
somewhat faint and weak from the extent of
tbe jouruey it has performed. It will not,
therefore, Im set in this slate to print or to
bard woik; but it will be thrown iuto a sort
of nursery, known as the receiving instru
ment, wnere its Waging energies will be
restored. The conducting strand of the cable
will be here made continuous with a coil of
wire surrounding a bar ot soft iron, ubich
will In-come a temporary magnet, etrong iu
proportion to the number of turus in the coil,
whenever the current passes.
This tempotsry maguet will hue Its pre
cise polarity determined by the direction in
which the electrical current passes along the
wire. Tbe pole which will be north a ben the
current passes in oue direction, will bo south
when it ruus the opposite way. The appara
tus relied upou by the Company to effect this
object-is an improuem -nt upou the relay mag
net, which figured in Messrs. Cooke aud
WbeaUtoue's pate ut. Tbe advantage of it is.
that the temporary niHguet has do other work
to do titan to make the small permanent mag.
net traverse upou its almost frictionleaa pivot.
On uccouat of ibis peculiarity ot construc
tion, it possenaea tbe utmost sensibility. It
may be put into vigorous action by a six

where the large double induction coil are at

backward and , forwards automatically, ami
doing a little bufbien ou their own accouut,
although uo currsut of any kind is thrown
upon their coil. They are then merely tra
versing -pou tbeir pivoLS, obediently to tbe
magnetic4 attraction of the great bam, bating
their tuaguetisin successively reversed some
two or three yard away, and curiously
enough, are sympathetically recording, at
such times, precisely . tbe same signals aud

spring, and drags down the style to make its

ceases to be a magnet the spring comes into
play and lifts the style up so that tbe paper
traverses on beneath, traceless and free."" The

an instant, accordingly as aa instantaneous

It is well known that the manufacture of
crown glass used for glazing windows and for
other purposes has been extensively produced
by blowiug tbe material into the form of
globes, and afterwards, by means of the opera
tion called Bashing, such globes are thrown
open iuto flat circular plates called tables.
Heretofore, the metal when tak-n from the
pot has been rolled on a smooth iron surface
iu order to bring the outer end of the metal
to a conical form, the extreme end of which
becbuies the outer axis of the globe, during
the operation of blowing and working the
glass into the required from. This outer axis
is called the bullion. During the expending
of the metal iuto the globular form the work
man rolls the bullion along a straight edge or
bar called the bullion-bar, as is well under
stood. In doing this the outer end of the
glass globe, whilst expanding and continually
revolving, rubs against the bullion-bar, by
which action parts of the surface of glass are
disturlsed or made irregular, and as the globe
extends in dimensions this rubbed surface
enlarges: the consequence being that when
the table of glass is complete there are at all
times more or less waved lines for some
inches around the bullion or the centre ot the
table of glass, which le'ssems the value. The
avoidance of this difficulty has been effected
by dispensing with the bullion bar, and
supplying its place by the application of a
tube or hollow bearing for the bullion or
outer axis of the globe of glass during its
expansion. By this means that party of the
surface which was rubbed by the bullion-bar
is in no way prejudicially acted on, aud the
waved appearatiee before consequent on the
manner of operating is avoided.
A New Species ok Cotton. Mr. Thomas
Smith, who resides in the immediate vicinity
of Richmond, has a small field of cotton
which is considered a curiosity by all who
have seen it. It differs but little in appear
ance from the ordinary kind, except in color
which is as delicately crimsoned as a maiden's
blush. Not only is the stalk of this gorgeous
hue, but the leaves also, the vividuess of co
lor, fading, however, as it approache-s the
margin of the leaf, into a purplish green.
This is not the effect of disease of an extran
eous circumstance connected with its culiure
but a peculiarity in the plant itself, every
stalk possessing the same rich and healthful
glow, aud as thrifty as any cotton iu the
country. Where the seed originally came
from we have not as yet ascertained. . The
prospect eif a heavy yield is equal to that of
any other species, beiug well boiled, and the
wee-d of vigorous growth. We were shown
the lint of a few bolls, of last year's growth,
and for fineness and length of staple we be
lieve it not inferior to the sea island. If this
cotton turns out as well as present appear
ances indicate, it will be a valuable acquisi
tion to this branch of agricultural insdustry.

A Kiss that Dion't Pat. The Toledo
Re-cord gets off a good one in regard to a
citizen of Iowa, whose wife iu his absence
had been kissed by a drover while giving a
glass of water. When he heard of the out
rage he started in pursuit, found the drover
after a hard day's ride aud accused him of
The drover admitted the truth of the soft
impeachment said he had been long time
from home, was sorely tempted, and in an
ungarded moment of frenzy purloiue-d the
kiss; but that he had not damaged tbe womau
in the smallest particular was very sorry,
thought it was no matter to make a great ado
about, and therefore begged to be excused.
The husband finally concluded that this
was the right view of tbe matter, and agreed
to settle it upon tbe receipt of $5 for his
day's ride. This being satisfactory, the
drover banded over a $10 bill aud received
$5 iu change. But when the aggrieved Ben
edict returned home and consulted his detec
tor he found the bill a counterfeit. He found
he had suffered the indignity of having his
wife kissed by a "nasty drover," passed one
day iuthe saddle aud lost $10, and concluded
that it didn't pay.
Ax Outspoken Epitaph. A remaakably
outspoken one, from a monument in Horsley
down Church, in Cumin-Hand, ruusas follows.
"lle're lies the IsKlie-s of Thomas Bond and
Mary bis wife. Sue was temperate, chaste,
and charitable; but she was proud, peevish,
and passionate. She was an affectionate wife
and tender mother, but her busbaud aud child,
whom she loved, seldom saw b r countenance
without a disgusting frown, while she receiv
ed visitors whom she despis-d with an endear
ing sinil-. Her behavior was discreet toward
st-angers, but imprudent in her family.
Abroad her conduct was influenced by good
breeding, but ut borne by ill temper."
And so the epitaph runs to considerable
length, acknowledging the good qualities of
the poor womau, but killing each by setting
against it some peculiarly uuamiable trait.
1 coufess that tny feeling is quite turned in
her favor by the unmanly assault which her
brother (the author of the iuscripliou) has
thus made upou the poor dead woman. If
vou cannot honestly say good of a human be

"You said what?"
"I said she would be rotten if "
"That's enough; you have put your foot In
it, to be sure."
"No, sare, I put my foot out of it: for she

letter from New York, on the 13th, relates
the following siugular circumstance:
On the 2Gth ult.. Mrs. Eliza Brannan, a
daughter of the late Col. J. B. Crane of the
United States army, aud wife of Capt. J. N..
Brannan. of the Uuite-d States army, stationed
at Key West, Florida, came to this city from
Stateu Island, in company with her mo: her
and brother, for the purpose of shopping.
She parted from them about one o'clock to
call on a lady friend residing iu Third street,
and this is the last that has lieeu seeu of her
by any member of her family. It is feared
that bbe has met with a violent death.
The Easton Express publishes the fol
lowing recipe for a novel luxury for the green
corn season :
Take a dozen or two ears of corn, the
swtH-t varieties preferred, husk, aud, without
boiling, grate off the grains. Stir into ibis
two table-spoonsful of flour for every dozen
ears, and also an egg. previously well beaten,
and a little salt, and a very little sugar; it
the corn be sweet, about two table spoonsful
to every dozen ears. Let the whole be well
stirred, aud baked in a greased tin-pan lor an
hour, in a hot oven. Then cat with fresh
butter or cream.
The drvq trade m Cauxtta. Physicians
in India raise blisters with red hot iron.. and
dress them with Cayenne pepper. If such
treatment doesn't make men "smart" it is
hard to say what would. The favorite cathar
tic of that country is pills made of gunpow
der twelve are given for a dose. A minute
after they are down, a coal fire is administer
ed, wheu a movement in the particles takes
place that either eradicates the disease or the
invalid commonly the latter. Queer coun
try, that India !
Beauty". In his essay "on the sublime and
beautiful." Burke holds that all obj cts hav
ing tae power of relaxing the nervous sys
tem are beautiful. If that be so, what an ele
gant thing is a shillalab. That haudsome
women unnerve a man we may admit; but
that they do it any more effectively than a
bat over the head, you may safely deny, and
coutinue to do ho as you rememler the last
"wake" you attended. If Burke is right,
then what an object of beauty there must be
in a hangman's rope. Queer stuff, this meta
physics, isu't it?
Size vs. noise. Men are a good deal like
dogs, only more so. It is with the man just
as it is with the cur, the less there is of them
the more noise they make. During the Slieve
gammon movement, the only man who was
determined to overthrow the bloody S ixtons
was a gentleman of Cork who measured four
feet two in his loots. The littlest toe-corns
have always made the biggest aches, and will
probably always continue to do so.
A RECIPE FOR HOUSEKEEPERS. As ga bills
now-a-daysare large, a recipt for diminishing
the quantity consumed will be a great desi
deratum. A recipe that will prevent gas
from escaping will be equally so. These can
both be accomplished in the following manner:
Take a club, and everytime you meet you
meet a stump speaker or a fourth of July ora
tor hit him on the head. A certain cure, or
money may be paid over again.
A dead level Au engineer on the Central
railroad uses tools of a new pattern. When
he wishes to establish "a dead level." he has
recourse to the New York , that being
iu his opinion, the "flattest" thing known to
the scientific world.
p-tr-The local editor of tbe Auburn (New
