The foreign correspondent of the Boston
Herald, writing from Lcipsic 6ays:
"While at Goeschenen I had an oppor
tunity of seeing the St. Gothard tunnel.
which is" now being bored through the'
mountains from Goescnenen toward
Italy, and from Ariolo toward Germany.
The approach to the tunnel on the
Goeschenen side is in the midst of the
wildest and most picturesque scenery. A
number of workshops, sheds, cantities,
and various small buildings cluster about
the mouth and give to an otherwise wild
spot the busy hum and noise of enter
prise, for the, clinking ot machinery,
whistling of the engine, and hammering
from the blaeksmithing is incessant, as
the work is ccntinued by day and night by
gangs of two thousand men, who, under
M. Fay re's direction, prosecute the work.
The men have been at work, in varying
numbers, however, just four years the
present month, and it will take all their
energies, united to the work of those on
the Italian side, to finish the undertaking
by 18S0. This, of course, if the money
does not give cut, and there is a good
deal of trouble in securing all Ibat w
needed. At present the entire rout is
surveyed from Luzerne and Zurich to
31 llan, and parts ot it cut. intnetunnei
three and three-fourths kilometers have
been completed on the German side, and
about four and a half on the Italian.
Tbe tunnel will be ten miles long. The
workmen employed are almost all Ital
ians, and worke-.gth hoursoutot twenty
four. Dynamite is used for blasting, and
all the drills are ordinary chilled steel
the diamond drill being unemployed.
The usual machine for driving the drills
is employed, and works by means of com
pesseu air, which 13 brought from the
reservoirs by means of a large pipe. The
reservoirs are supplied by a number oi
condensing engines, turned by water, for
which purpose a mountain stream is,
some way above the mouth of the tun
nel, diverted into a sluiceway. A strength
of ten to twelve atmospheres is always
maintained. Compressed air is also used
to work the engine, which carries its
reservoir behind, like a tender on an or
dinary engine, only .it is a boiler sixty
feet long, and of the clylinder-boiler
make. It runs easily and smoothly, and
being without any heat is much ple.ts
anter to work. It is used mainly for
hauling the stone from the interior to a
side-track, after it i brought away from
the immediate vicinity to the blast by
means of horses. Although this tunnel
and route will take a long time to com
plete, it will unquestionably be of the
greatest service when time is considered,
as the route is from England to Cologne,
along the Rhine to Frankfort, then Ia.sel,
Luzerne ahd St. Gothard, and you are
in Italy. The engineers in charge prove
sufficiently that the high grade to which
the road attains liefore passing into the
tunnel will in no way impede the hauling
of freight, and that with a good ,
It will, unnuestionably, be a part of the
direct route to India from England, and
decidedly the shortest to Italy. A com
petitive route through the Rhone valley
and by Simpson pass to Italy is projected
in France to keep this travel through
France, but is still in embryo. It would
have the advantage of having the rail
road finished as far as Seisse aud built as
far as the foot of te pas.

Mr. Almy, publisher of a financial
newspaper here, states that Charles A.
Dana told him a few days ago that the
New York Tribune had been sold to
George W. Childs, the real estate ex
cepted, for foOO.OW, as dispatched to
you Wednesday night. This shows a
shrinkage of nearly sfoOO.OOO in the value
of the Tribune t.ince Mr. Reid took
charge of it. In that interval Mr. Sin
clair, the publi-her, has become a $1,200
clerk in the customhouse. Mr. Cleve

The Arctic Expedition.
A London dispatch of Oct. 30 gives
the following account of the voyage of
the steamers Alert and iiscovery m tne
A narrative of the arctic expedition
is published. It relates that alter first
encountering ice tbe expedition was de
tained some days at l'ort layer, it
started thence on Aug. 8, but before
reaching the shore of Grincil land the
vessels were caught in an ice-pack. After
this their progress northward was an in
cessant struggle through chance openings
ade in the ice by wind and current,
the channel through which the ships
moved constantly closing behind them.
The Discovery wintered in a well shel
tered harbor on the west side of Hall's
basin, a few miles north of Polaris bay.
The Alert pushed forward and rounded
the northeast point of Grant's land, but
instead of finding, as expected, a contin
uous coast a. hundred miles toward .the
north, she found hersell on the border of
an extensive sea, with impenetrable ire
on every side and no harbor. The ship
wintered behind a barrier of grounded
ice. The floating masse oi thick polar
ice had in meeting pressed up quantities
of intermediate ice into blocks frequent
ly a mile in diameter and varying in
height from ten to fifty feet. Obstacles
of this kind destroyed all hopa of reach
ing the polo by sledges before the

in Newman's bay a chronometer was
found in perfect order. Wheat left by
the Polaris was successfully grown aboard

The officers of the Penusvlvania rail
road are trying to discover the sender of
the trunk containing the infernal ma
chine shipped to New York on Friday,
but without success. It was checked on
presentation of a ticket in the. usutl way,
and there is no means of finding out who
owned it, as far as the transaction is con
cerned. A number of detectives exam
ined the machine on Saturday but it is
not probable that any clew will be ob
tained from it. It consists of the brass
works of a clock, occupying a space about
six inches in length and lour in width.
The wood-work of the clock had been
sawed off, and the minute hands taken
from the face. A small pistol loaded
with a metalic cartridge was firmly
screwed on top o! the clock frame, and
the trigger-catch filed dawn until it
barely held. The muzzle extended over
the back of the clock at an acute angle
with the face, leaving the bottom of the
center of the dial over the figure twelve.
A wooden button, such as is used on
doors, was screwed to the wood-work,
in such a position that one end touched
the trigger, and the other was in the
course of the hour hand when it reached
twelve on the dial. The clock and the
pistol were placed in a pasteboard box,
and this imbedded in a mass of hay and
shavings in a Saratoga trunk, it is
thought, from the fragments of glass
found in the hay, that the explosives
were contained in glass bottles, the
railroad officials think that the intention
of the man who put the machine in the
trunk was to rob the passengers, or cause
such destruction in the baggage car that
he could claim large damages. If the
trunk had been in the lower tier of
trunks the explosion would have de
stroyed much of tbe baggage, and proba
bly wrecked the train. The most care
ful search on the car tailed to reveal the
check or any .portion of the trunk, which
was shattered and bent. The damage to
er trunks was trifling, and no claims
have been made by their owners. Some
of them were badly scorched, and the
roof of the car was burned, but not to
any great extent. About half an hour
after the train reached Jersey City, a
large man, with a heavy black' uious
tache, made several inquires at the depot
about the matter, and inquired anxiously
where bilpath. the baggage master on
the train, was, and departed to visit him
at his residence in ayne street. Jersey

day the company'sdetcctivcs were search

The Horrors of Modern Warfare.
A correspodent of the London Tele
graph writes: "Thus they c:yne on,
and presently opened so fearful a rifle,
firo that the builets fell around us all
like hail. As yet our infantry were
quiet ; not a rifle was hear!, and the foe
was coming nearer to the semi-circular
trenches ot which I have before spoken.
Suddenly there is a movement in the
bushes, a sharp note trom tne bugle, a
rattle or bayonets and fteel barrels, and
then a little cheer. Our men are mov
ing, the support are taking the empty
trenches, and the rest of each battalion is
in the reserve lines. All at once such a
fire pours fcrth as envelopes you in
smoke, and makes that still advancing
column stagger. Yet only for a minute;
there is a counter cheer and aiapid rush.
Whirr! how the bullets fly past them;
with what shrieks do the shells bound in!
See, the Servians are standing still for a
moment, firing yet, but coming no near
er to the mountain. Their line ii grad
ually being fed, too, and they are extend
ing every moment. It is only the fear
of the shells and the bullets which makes
them hesitate. Perhaps not only the
fear, but rather the eflt ct, for now they
are falling fast, and without thcaideven
of a glass we can see that they are strew
ing the ground by hundreds or stagger
ing away to die. Harder than ever is
our fire,"a.s theirs weakens, and more de
termined, too, are our men, for they now
quit the out post trenches and are ad
vancing upon the lewiidered enemy.
Volley after volley from the fee fail to
stoo them ; they leave many a comrade I
on the ground, but on they go, till at
length the Servians, seeing their red
fezes coming nearer and nearer, turn and
fly, deserting 3,000 of their number, who
will never see home in Russia or on the
banks of the Danulw any more.
Not one was there but might have
been the hardy father of a numerous
family. I did not see a lwy among them.
One in particular I noticed and he was
but the type of the rest a tall, well
made, broad shouldered warrior, who,
having fought to his uttermost and re
ceived a wound in the stomach, had laid
down upon the road to Dcrbent in hope
of succor. Unhappily for him, f riends
were far away, and his comrades bad
hung in fantastic fashion, on a tree bard
by, a Circassian who, having fallen into
their bauds, had been first tortured and
put to death. I was looking at him as I
rode by, wondering if he were yet alive,
when, horrible to relate, there cime upon
the scene four Chiaktssoes. They, 1o,
had Feen their hanging comrade. and thry
thirsted for blood. At this moment the
wounded Serb raised his head and rolled
his glas-y eyes round in hope of descry
ing help. Down sprang a Circa..iaii,and
with a little dagger pierced the dying man
through and through, cut off his right
hand, and ripped him up as he lay upon
the gronnJ. Fortunately his end was
near, and be expired : but even in death
he was a handsome giant, this victim to
the barbarous war which Russia has
caused and waged."

The European cuckoo never builds a
nest, but steals a place for each separate
egg in the home of some other bird.
Occasionally the egg is found in a nest
so small that the cuckoo could not pos
sibly have set upon it. For instance,
the egg lias leen laid .in the willow
wren's nest, which is domed, and has an
entrance that just admits the owner.
How does the cuckoo manage to lay her
egg in .a nest so constructed ? Vaillant
obtained evidence that one of the African
cuckoos carries the egg in her bill to the
nest she means to usurp, and it is sup
posed by some that the European sK?cies
does the same.
For years we used "salts of lemon"
and various acids to remove stains from
table linen, but a person remarket! to us:
" All your l:i!or is useless. Wait till
the peaches are gone and the stains will
also be gone." We thought this utterly
foolish, but decided to try it ; and, sure
enough, when the peaches we're gone the
stains had disappeared ! The idea, in it
self, loks ridiculous ; but does not the
table linen get enough regular washing
to take out almost any stains in the
course of one peach season ? We have
noticed the same is true of grape stains,
or of almost any other kind of fruit.

What is termed the "voltaic gas
ligther," an ingenious device which ob
viates the use of matches or tapers,
and does away with the attendant dan
ger in lighting gas, is coming into exten
sive use abroad. It consists of a small
bichromate of potash battery, the zinc
plate of which is so arranged that by the
pressure of the finger it can be immersed
in the exciting fluid and put the battery
in action. Rising from the top of the
battery is a liuht brass stem, like :i taper
holder, but in the form of a swan's neck,
terminating in a little liell, within which
the two poles of the battery are united
by a spiral of platinum wire; this wire,
when the battery is put in action by
the immersion of the zinc plate, becomes
white hot. and will instantly ignite the
gas if held over the open burner, nothing
more being essential.
