and approved by the unanimous, vote of
the Ioasr of Managers, for the GREaT

followving rules :
"Thi~suPedal (of gold) is to be awarded
onl~y for a machine, product, or process,
exhibited this 'Centennial year,' at the 45th
Exhibition of the American Institute of
the city of New York. Itcan be awarded
only for a machine, product, or process, of
great value, decided importance, and of
more than usual merit; and then only by
a majority of the whole Board of Trustees,
upon the written report of three judges,
whose report shall certify to the above

The publishers or the NEw ORLEANS
TIaEs wish especially at this time that
every citizen of this State should be a sub
scriber or reader of the TIMES. Questions
of the greatest importance to Louisiana
are Ipending waitieg solution. A conven
tion of her delegates is now in session
drafting an organic law for adoption to
replace the pre-ent constitution, and
which it is hoped will radically reform
those fearful abuses, wasteful extravagan
cies and gross injustices which have been
nurtured by it a~nd have grown uip under
it. The snlb -ct of reetrictive quarantinm as
to its efficacy in preventing the introduc
tion of the scourge of yellow fever and its
acknwledged blight a eff ets upon the
business and prosperity of the city of New
Orleanngand the Stare, is now engrossing to
a L..rge extent public attention. Other vitnl
questions, such as lab.r, immigration, rail
road communications with our neighboring
State of Texas, removal of the State cali
tal. etc.. demaind constant consideration
The publishers of the TrsEs, refer with
pride to the position taken by the TIMES
on all of these questions. Their inspiring
motive has been the good of the State and
her people. for upon her prosperity, devel
opment and growth depend their compen
saation and reward. From no other source
can they expect to subserve these ends.
The thorough independence of the TIMER.
its strength, courage and consistency in
the discussion of all questions, its indefati
gable and persistent labors to restore the
wonted prosperity of the Sonth,have made
it recognized throughout the country as
the leading Southern journal and made it
quoted everywhere as the representative
of the best Southern thought and opinion.
The publishers wish that a copy may be
placed in the hands of every citizen in this
State, that he may judge by perusal of its
merits, of its consistency, of its motive.

the day ;as a co - mercial paper, showing

ILESCALE'S AUTOMIATIC FIRE ESCAPE
PATENTED MAY 21, 1S78.
Among the things most required
in these days of tall buildings and
narrow places of entrance and exit,
are means of escape In case of fire
for those who occupy the upper
apartments. Apparatus for this pur
pse should be compact, po tble,
and yet strong and reliable. To em
body these desirable qualities in a
single device has been the aim of
the inventor whose fire escape is
shown in the accompanying engrav
The iron frame, A, which supports the se
veral parts of the machite is secured in a
washstand or some other suitable piece of
furniture, which is placed upon ca.t, rs,
and made of sufficient weight and strength
to suit the purpose. A double drum, ], is
journaled to the frame, A, andt two ropes,
rope ladders, or chains are attached there
to, one in each groove of the drumn. To
these ropes or chains a4justable seats are
suspended by me:,ns of hooks.
When the drum, B, is revolved it imparts
through the medium ot the acar wheels an
increased motion to the shaft, C, which in
turn, by means of cranks, D. and E, of un
equal radius, imirarts a rocking motion to
the shaft. F. that carries the pendulum or
weight, H, which may be screwed up or
down on the rod to regulate the rotary
motion of the drum, B. Screwing up the
weight toward the shaft, F, will permit the
drum, B. to run with an increased velcity;
screwing the weight down produces the
opposite effect. By means of this device
TO CAPITALISTS AND MANUFACTURERS.
Your attention is respectfully
called to the subject of the above

introduced to the public.

Your device pleases us in that it is
simple. It seems to us to present a splen

see no reason why this Escape should not
take its place as a candidate for favor and
receive a share of the support conceded to
others. There is room for it, and it will
most assuredly hold its own. The price

The Rhind's Patent
Perfect Safety Lamp.
Every da.ger that can originate from
Kerosene Oil, when it is in the, bowl of
the lamp, must occur frol. one or two
Cau6es. V\Z :
1--VIOLENT ACCIDENT I-Dropping
a amup: tirning a lamp over; draggiug a
lamp off the table.; filling a lamp while it
is lighted ; blowing down the chimney to
extingni :h the light.
. - SPONTANEOUS EXPLOSION ! -
The burner tecomes DoT and gradually
acts on the oil until by a proces , of distil
la ion the GAs or VAPro accunulates. I'is
nuist useape-by passing up the wick-tube
and iguiting with the flamtu-becoining
(when the wick fits too tigat) too strong
for the-strength of the lamp-bh.wl and then
a violent explosion occurs by the expansive
force of the oil gas.
Hlow the Rhind Safety Lamp Or.
comnes these two Gareat Cagsaes of
First, by a tube passni§ through the bowl
of the lamp. the cular of which being ewon
nected with a weight.must falHl by the law
o. gravity when the lamp is turned beyond
the angle of 10 degrees. This mech~aneal
action clones the extinguisher whenever
any of the dangers occur mentioned under
the head VrIOLsNT ACCIDENT.
Second, by the shape of the-chimney,
which has parallel sides bounded by
straight sides, thus keeping the BUAtNEt
COOL by forcing a continual draught'of -
cold air over it. If the burner is always
cool, no heat exists to act on the oil in the
bowl of the lamp, and as heat is the prin
cipal generator of gas. this being removtd
by the structure of the burner and chinm
ney, it follows that a Srow.rrasous Expm.o
ox of the oil is IlatossmLi in the RUniD
SAEsrr LAIP, because the conditions of
such acatastrophe are removed by iuvy -
Light and Sathty to CoRm.~ I
By the use of our burner (whichf fs all
lamps except the German , tudy.) the ex
tinguisher gives to a half-inch wick the
flame of an Argand Burner which btrns a
wick three times as large--this is efeeted
by making the resistance less in the direc
tion of the spreaders and the air gushing' -
la presses the liaone into a fan shape
Again, by using the chimney with our
burner you still have the cool btiner, and
hence, fbr reasons mentioned above, can
never have a spontaneous explosion. lastly
the danger from blowing down thechimaey
is obviated by the extinguisher.
