Clay and n3uc0aaan.
Henry Clay used to take especial de
light in annoying Mr. Buchanan, who
had, he believed, started the report that
he had made a bargain with John Quincy
Adams by which he secured the election
of the Massachusetts statesman as Presi
dent, receiving in return the appoint
ment of Secretary of State, which had
been up to that day a stepping stone to
the Presidency. On one occasion, as
Mr. Buchanan was defending himself
against the charge of disloyalty during
the war of 1812, he having been "an old
Federalist," to prove his loyalty he
stated that he entered a company of
volunteers at the time the British at
tacked Baltimore, or at the time of the
battle of North Point, and marched to
Baltimore. "True," he said, "he was
not in any engagement, as the British
had retreated before he got there."
Mr. Clay-You marched to Baltimore,
Mr. Clay-Armed and equipped?
Mr. Buchanan-Yes; armed and
Mr. Clay-But the British had re
treated when you arrived?
Mr. Clay-Will the Senator from
Pennsylvania be good enough to inform
us whether the British retreated in con
sequence of his valiantly marching to
the relief of Baltimore, or whether he
marched to the ralief of Baltimore in
consequence of the British having al
The Senators and the occupants of the
galleries roared with laughter, and Mr.
Buchanan, red with anger, prudently
made no reply.-Ben. Perley Poore, in

The Spreial Geological Agent's New DIscov
Mr. Sloan. who is engaged in invcatigat

United States Geological Survey, spent yes
terday in taking observations in the ceme

succeeded in making a number of inerest
Among them was the shifting of the
enormous -..u shed at the South Carolina
Railway wharf on Cooper River. The
shed is 400 feet lonI by 60 wide, and is
supported on ix-nts which rest on piles.
The building contained about 1,50)0 tons of
guano at the time of the earthquake, and
yet, notwithstauding its great size and
weight, the entire structure was shifted 8
feet 9.1inches towards the southeast, thus
showing the vast energy manifested by the
Another discovery of interest, as show
ing the direction of the force, was that the
brick casing or well of the gas reservoir on
Wahington street, although buried in the
ground, had been forced eight inches to
wards the southeast and had thea recoiled
into its original position. The evidence of
its displacement was found in an opening or
indentation about eight inches wide in the
ground, showing where the brick curbing
had pressed back the dirt.
Mr. Sloan will continue his observations
to-day, operating in the section of country
between Ravenel's and Lamnbs.-Tecs ainr
-'X Casting Glases Like Iron.
Berlin papers copy from the Germania
the accoo~nt of an important discovery in
glass manufacture made by Friedrich
Siemens, of Dresden. He has succeeded
in casting glass in the same way as metal
is cast and obtaining an article corre
sponding to cast metal. This cast glass
is hard, not dearer in production than
cast iron, and has the advantage of
transparency, so that all flaws can, be
detected before it is applied to practical
use. It will be much less exposed to
injury from atmospheric influences than
iron. The process of production is not
difficult, the chief feature being rapid
copling. The hardiness and resisting
power of this cast glass are so great that
experiments are being just now carried
out at the Siemens Glass Foundry at
Dresden with the purpose of ascertaininsr
w~sther the material could be employcai
for rails on railways.-London Times.

May to September, but that these are pn
ciselv the months when the severer eartl
quakes are likely to occur: and, again. th
a period of few ertliquakes is especial
likely to be followed by one or two sevet
ones that become stronger the longer t1
period of dearth has existed.
Charleston lies precisely in the regio
where the carthquakes have been least fri
quent for the last fifteen years. Accordin.
to the study made of the number of cartI
quakes already mentioned, the whole coui
try is now entitled to a period of rest .
least as long as those between thce irJ
quakes of Bfoston, in 1755: of New Madri
in 1811, and the present one of 1s8-name
ly, from fifty-eight to seventy-live years.
With regard to earthiuake tidal wavc,
there was from the beginning no occasio
for fear in the present instance. Ti
waves of 1755 in Uurope and America: thI
of India, in 1819: that of St. Martin's, N<
venber 18, l55; that of Callao. 1Z;56; Arici
IAugust, 18C.8, and Conception, Februari
l1836; that of Japan. December 2:3, 154, an
that of Krakatoa, July 15;3, all illustra:
the general principle that ocean va vcg
tend only such carthquakes as origmat
under the ocvan, or on the imniedial
coast. The ocean water must receive
nearly vertical shock in L-r-der to !tart i!
wave. Shocks that originate under ti:
continent, some distance fromn the ;-:.
strike the laitter with a rearly hor;Y.ont:
movement, and so far as our records shi
these appear never to produce severe eart!
quale ocean waves, at le.St not in t:
nei,-hborhood of their origin. If any sue
wa've attended the Charleston tarthiq'uaf1
it would be felt in the Bermudaas :and Er
rope rather than on our coast.
