THE EIGHTH IN WASHINGTON.
Washington, Jan. 8, 1853.
Dear Mr I have to-day this bright and blessed
8th of January witnessed the celebration of the
victory ofJSew Orleans honored in a manner nev
er before equalled. It was set apart, as yon well
know, for the inauguration of Mills' Equestrian
bronssestatueof the Immortal Jackson the "Great
est and Best."-
Let me say a few words about the statue it
self. - '
Oiark stills, the maker, is an.aumble plasterer.
Sevcral years ago, while following his trade in
Charleston, South Carolina, he coneeivod the idea
of making a statue after many years of hard study
and labor, under the most adverse and dishearten
ing circumstances, this great work of his geniu3 at
last stands forth in all it grandeur, impressiveness
and boldness of design. The horse and rider are
thrice the size of life the horse is in a rearing,
plunging attitude, poised upon his hind feet fore
feet raised high in the air, main and tail flowing in
the wind, and nostrils dilated. ti3 if "snuffing the
smell of battle." The General is firmly seated,
dressed in his uniform, -which is an exact copy of
that-worn at the Battle of New Orleans, and now
deposited in the' National Institute here in his
right hand he hold3 - his cocked hat above his head
in the act oPgiving a salute, while with his Iel he
reigns his horse. The likenes3 to the General is
most faithfully preserved. The statue is derated
upon a marble pedestal eight feet in height, and
this upon a slightly olevatcd mound of earth.
The statue is made ofsome of the brass ennnon cap
turod bythe gallant Tennesseans in their over
whelming victory over the British at New Orleans.
It is highly polished, arid makes a truly splendid ap
pearance. , What strikes the beholder most is, that
this heavy m.S3 of metal this statue of Collossal
proportions is sdf poised. There is no prop under
the belly or support from the tail as is the case with
the great equestrian statue of Pater the Great, the
Duke of Wellington, and other celebrated works
.of the same Icindlin Europe but there it is, poised
upon the hind feet, nn object of admiration and
As to the ceremonies. At an early hour it was
evident, from the crowded condition of the streets,
.that something of unu&lul interest was on hum!,
under the orders of the Secretary of War, the corps
jiajor xayior, arnvea, to taice if place m tue pro
'cession. This is the fine corp3 of flying artillery
which did such glorious service under Ringgold at
Palo Alto and Resaca, and consequently attracted
the attention and elicited the admiration of every
,beholdar. The military made a most imposing and
dashing displa'. The procession was formed at the
City Hall and marched down Fourth street, thence
-up Pennsylvania Avenue to the Executive Mansion
and saluted the President, who was surrounded by
his cabinet, and several distinguished officers of the
"Army and Navy. Lafayette Square, in the centre
of which stands the statue, is in front of the White
House. This beautiful square was crowded with a
concourse of men, women, and children, that did
. not fall short of twenty thousand in number. At
12 m., after an appropriate and eloquent prayer by
the Chaplain of the Senate, Rev. Dr. Butler, Hon.
Stephen A. Douglas was introduced and proceeded
to read his oration, (everything is read here al--tnosL)
The oration I have forwarded. It is not a i
finished and elaborate as might have been expected
-briefly summing the life, character, and military
.services of Jackson. It is, however, (greatly to its
credit) free from poetical quotations, with which it
has become the too common practice of Congres
sional speakers to ornament their speeches. The ad
dress of course could not be heard amid the hum
and'bustle of the solid acres" of humanity, except
by the few immediately in ear-shot around tli2 ora
tor. On the stand was observed the President of
the United States, and members off his cabinet, Gen.
Scott in full dress uniform, Senators, Representa
tives, and many officers of the Army and Navy. At
'the conclusion of the oration, the artist, ilr. Mills,
was conducted to the front of the stand, and intro
duced to the assembly he was loudly cheered and
bowing silently, ata motion of his hand the statue
ivasat once unveiled and stood grandly aad boldly
to the view of admiring and expectant thousands.
Upon the whole this has been a glorious jubilee
in the annals of our military renown. I have ever
been a warm admirer of the diameter oF General
Jackson, but to-day, more than ever, do "I .thank
God that I am an American" and "a

polishing and utilizing hand of genius. He will be
.more fortunate than other great inventors, should
he live to see the perfection of his own handiwork.
'We may now cast back to the old world her dis
dainful boast that the new has .produced nothing
worthy of note in the higher paths of genius. In the
useful arts, the Great Republic, though less than
three quarters of a century old, looms above her
'most ancient monarchy. The cotton gin, the steam
engine, the telegraph, and last aud greatest, the
caloric engine, have all sprung from her fruitful ge
nius. What that genius, still so young and restless,
may yet confer upon mankind it would be pre
sumption to conjecture. The world must look to it,
and not to the barren intellect of the old world, for
the discoveries and improvements of the future.
a pressure of half a pound to the square inch would
start the engine, and the weight of the crank alone
was sufficient to put it in motion. The expense of
running a caloric engine he stated would be but
one-fifth of that of a steam engine of the same power.
In conclusion, Mr. E. stated that he was induced I
to go on this trial trip lor me saice ox tne parue3 in

So clear were Capt E.'s explanations that he
was urged to give a lecture at Metropolitan Hall,
illustrated, as yesterday, by his mode:, on a larger
scale, which, we trust that he will do. It was con
ceded by all that Capt E. had demonstrated hissuc-

Secoxd Trial Trip of the Caloric ShipUricsson.
This "wonderful vessel, the success 6f which is ex
citing so much attention among all classes, at home
and abroad, went down the bay yesterdar, on
another trial trip, having made what is called an
"engineer's trip ' some days back, an account of
which, together with a full description of the ves
sel, appeared at the time in the Herald. The
second trip was determined on, to dispel, by anoth
er ocular demonstration, the evil reports that in
spite of the success of the first trial trip, have been
raised against the practicability of the experiment.
Accordingly, a party of about sixty invited guests,
composed of members of the pres3 and several
scientific gentlemen, assembled on board a two
boat at Whitehall, at nine o'clock, from which they
were transferred to the Ericsson, which was wait
ing for visitors in the North river, off Pier No. 1.
At half-past nine exactly, the first turn of the
wheels was made. At fifteen minutes of ten she
was abreast the fort on Governor's Island, and
reached Fort Diamond at exactly fifteen minutes to
eleven o'clock, a distance of about seven miles and
a half, against a strong head wind and tide. When
between Governor's Island and Quarantine, the
steamship Baltic, from Liverpool, was passed, which
saluted us with cannon, and several hearty rounds
of cheers, which were promptly returned. After
the Ericsson had proceeded about a mile and a half
below the Narrows, she put about and returned to
the city, and arrived at her starting point in the
North river at a quarter past twelve. The distance
from Governor's Island to her turning point and
back, was about eighteen miles, which was accom
plished in two hours and a half. The greatest
number of revolutions made on the trip was ten
and a quarter, and the greatest speed attained was
at the rate of nine miles an hour. This trip was
not made to show her speed, but to convince the
public that the parties interested m her have suc
ceeded in their promise of proving the capability of
a vessel being propelled by caloric. On the way
back the party assembled in the saloon, where
Oaptaip Ericsson explained, bj' the aid of a diagram,
the whole principal and method of working his
caloric engines. He gave a succinct history of the
whole matter, and demonstrated the method by
which the atmosphere was drawn in cold, then
forced through a wire network, forming a surface
of 15,000 sqnaro inches, into a lower, cylinder,
where, receiving additional heat from the furnace,
it is expanded in the lower cylinder so as to raise
it, and then, when it had done its work, it escaped
through the work of wire gauze into the open air,
having imparted the greater portion of its heat to
the wire work, which was again absorbed by the
fresh draft of cold air passing through the same
wire meshes to be heated. There are four double
6oab-ftw6abau and two forward of the main
They all'move'in connection, those
forward rise, while those in the rear opthc shaft
sink. There are two piston or driving crank rod
which turn the wheel shafts. One is moved by a
walking beam, which is moved by the cylinders in
front, and the other by a similar beam in the rear.
They both work on the same crank of the wheel
shaft, and at inclined angels, rising from below, in
the form of the letter V. inverted thus, with the
shaft crank for both of the apex. Hence, while one
rod is pushing, the other is pulling the crank thus
avoiding the dead point usually encountered in the
ordinary crank motions of steam engines, Sec. The
pressure was uniformly at twelve pounds to the
square inch. Capt. Ericsson estimated the force of
his machinery at 600 horse power. The upper
cylinder in eauh ease contained a head surface of
14,000 square inches, and the lower cylinders a sur
face of 22,500 square inches. The diameters of the
main cylinders were about 168 inches. The main
valves were about two feet in diameter. The con
sumption of coal was at the rate of about six tons
in twenty-four hours. - During- Capt Ericsson's
lucid exposition of his machinery, he invited the
most rigid scrutiny and investigation. Many ques
tions were put by parties present, which he an
swered with great clearnessand promptness. One
question asked regarded the packing of the cylin
ders, which it had been said would melt, and let
the air escape. He showed that by filling the cylin
der head with non conducting materials and the
packing by surrounding the head, being above the
surface exposed to heated air, was kept cool. He
also showed how a man, by standing on a cylinder
head, could, by hand, readily lubricate every part
of the surface of the cylinder. The packing, also,
he showed to beat all times in command of the
engineer or attendant, which was not the
case in steam engines. To a question regarding
Uie oxidizaUon, expansion, and contraction of the
iron composing the bottoms of the main cylinders
immediately over the fires in the furnaces, he stated
that the iron composing them was an inch and a
quarter thick, and when they gave out, which would
not be over once in five years, new ones could im
mediately be substituted without displadng any of
the machinery; and were it desirabledtomake them
endure for a longer period, they could have their
surfaces exposed to thd fire, coated with firebrick
clay. He said they did not expand, or contract,
or vibrate but very little, and not more than was
"common to metal similarly used in oUier engines.
Many oUier duestions were put and answered, re
garding the backing or reversing the action of his
machinery, and when stopping her on her course
for an hour, more or less, how he would start ber
again. To the latter question he said, if the deten
tion exceeded many minutes, he would start just as
hej would in the first instance, by pumping a sup
ply of fresh air, which would soon become expand- j
ediu the large cylinder, and put all in motion. But I

that the heirs of Stephen Girard have commenced
actions of ejectment in the Circuit Court and Court
or NisiPrius, against the immense estate bequeathed
by the old "mariner and merchant" to the City
Corporation, as Trustees, &c. The present action
13 said to rest on the abolishment of the principle of
entail, alleged to be violated in the present devise,
which is perpetual; and as Girard could not entail
his estate in his own family, how could he entail it
in a corporation? The action is said to be timed
within the twenty-one 3Tears' limit of actual posses
sion only by a few hours.

will be maintained. New discoveries are reported

The great fundamental principle of the trans
mission of caloric cost the inventor twenty years of
reflection to realizein this machine. It consists in
using constantly the same heat to warm the air
which is made to enter the cylinders. The appa
ratus by means of which this principle is applied, is
called a regenerator, and we can form a clear idea
'of it by supposing that a man has his mouth fillet;
with a warm metalic sponge; if he draws in hi
breath, the exterior air, in traversing the pore's -c ,
the warm sponge, will itself be warmed, and will ar
rive warm into the lung, whilst the sponge, having
parted with its caloric, will have become cold; if ho
exhales the air thus warmed, this air, in again tra
versing the sponge, will again warm it, and wi!
come out reduced in temperatuie. If, instead t
producing these movements by the contraction c

Pierce Funeral of Hon. 0. 1L Atherton. Concord,
Jan. 11, 1853. Gen. Pierce left the Eagle Hotel,
for Andover, in the ten o'clock train this morning.
Ho obtained a comfortable night's rest at Mr. Wil
liams', his old boarding house resting more quietly
than during any night since the accident. He
was greatly prostrated by the melancholy duties of
yesterda', and sullered considerably also irom the
strains and bruises which he susiained. Gen. P.
was accompanied to Andover by his friend, Col.
Steptoe, of the U. S. Army. Surgeon O'Neal, a
faithful Irishman, who served under the General in
Mexico, attended upon him.
The funeral of the Hon. C. H. Atherton, father of
lion. Charles G. Atherton, will take place to-mor
row, at Amhurst.
(gp The New York papers chronicle the ar
rest of two policemen charged with burglary. One
of the robbers was shot and his recovery is extreme
ly doubtful. The Express says:
Our criminal column, this morning, records the
arrest of two policemen on a charge of burglar-; a
beautiful exemplification of the peculiar moral fit
ness of some of the men who have the "guardian
ship" of the city committed to their charge. Two
policemen arrested for burglary, indeedl If things
have come to this, burglars, aud thieves, and pro
fessors of petty and grand larcenies of all kinds. may
be expected to plead official precedent in palliation.
Humor says that many ofthe "burglaries" reported
in the newspaperVare the handiwork of the very
numerous and worthy class of public servants to
whom the delectable pair referred to have the hon
or to belong.
