more to the prosperity of a town than

has invented this attachment for boilers.
It can be applied on our wetern steam
ers just as ea.y as on locomotives. We
have lin own authority for this asser
tion, und we are informed the cost is
comparatively light. Ilfie is a chance
for some of the largo steamboat com
panics to make a good investment, and
not only inure their property from
destruction from boiler explosions, but
protect ihuir passengers. The company
that is first to adopt it, and advertise it
to the public, is bound to sceuio the
most of the passenger travel. We hope,
before many days, to notice tho adop
tion of it on our western rivers.
