How Printing Types are Made.
Movable types were first invented by a
German named John Guttsmborg; bat little
proficiency, however, in the typo founding art,
was made in bis day, the operations of casting
being exceedingly rude and tedious, and if old
German John was now to arise from bis grave
and see the improvements whioh have been
made in the manufacture of types since that
time, he would be as greatly surprised, if not
more so, than was the publio at the time he
discovered the improvement, wbioh was ao far
superior to tbe old pen-made books.
The first mode of casting types was to strike
a letter of approved out, answering to the
modern punch, into soft clay or plaster, and to
pour the metal into tho mold thus formed;
the body of the letter would then have to be
dressed into shape by hand. This slow and
imperfect method was superseded by the Inven
tion of a highly ingenious metal hand-casting
machine, still somewhat extensively nsed. We
ara without the particulars of this invention,
as it was kept a secret in the hands of a few
for nearly half a century.
The above engraving is a perspective view
of a type-casting machine, the novel features of
which were patented by Mr. David Bruce, of
New York. Nine of these maehines are in use
at the Franklin '.Type Foundry, IAS Vine street,
where we saw them in operation. They each
ocoupy a space of about two feet square, and
are attached to the wall. A furnace, heated by
bituminous ooal, occupies a space of about
eight inches square, directly under the back
part of the machine, and is arranged with flues
leading to the chimney flue, which produce
draft sufficient to keep the coals glowing hot,
Directly upon this furnace is placed a cast
iron reservoir, about five inches square, for
receiving the composition, whioh is kept in a
state of fusion by the beat from the furnaoe,
A small oast-iron pump is so arranged as to
elevate into the mold, at the proper time, a
sufficient quantity of the tietul to form one
type, and is operated by a crank, which also
works the mold plate, and brings the mold
down to a small aperturo leading to the reser
voir, where, by means of tbe pump, it receives
a charge, when tho mold plate is elevated,
and the type, having suddenly congealed, is
released from the mold, and slides off into a
box. The whole process is completed by sim
ply turning a crank, the only skill required
being to keep the composition at the right
temperature and the maohine in order. A fasi
workman will cast about sixty types per minute.
Tbe molds are made of tempered steel and
require to be fitted very neatly, there being but
few men skillful enough to perform this work
properly. The dies which form tbe face of the
type, and which give the letter its form, arc
made of copper, and the impression of the letter
is sunken in by means of a punch, upon the
end of which the letter has been cut or engraved
To out these letters requires great skill, but Mr.
Bbuce bas received much praise for his snooesi
In this rare accomplishment,
After the typcB leave the molds, tbey are

tion of molding, is obviated by rubbing them
upon a perfeotly flat stone. The types are then
set up in rows,, each kind by itself, and placed
upon tbfi dressing rod, whioh is a flat strip ol
steel about on yard long, and having a ehoul
der on one edge, and so constructed as to bold
tbe type firmly while the bottoms are planed
off preoitely the right length, whioh is the same
the world over, and a small groove out in the
bottom, whioh prevents any tendenoy to tipovei
or lean in the form. The types are then passed
to the next, who examines each one separately,
throngh a magnifying-glass, and picks oui
every on that shows any imperfeotlon. In
finishing Tory skillful operators are required,
beoause if the slightest variation In the site
of the typos occur, they are wholly spoiled,

lishment is, perhaps, the most interesting
all. and the process of coating the surface
. . jiU k iAni aol . inn
constitutes on of tho greatest wonders or this
wonderful age. The advantages of ooppw
surfaocs for types and cut are, that tbey
add muoh to the durability, tbey work
oleaner, produoe a sharper impression, use less
ink, and facilitate composition by rendering
tbe letters more readily distinguishable. In
coating ordinary types they are first cast in the
usual way, and afterward faced with a coating
of oopper, but electrotype plate's are produced
by an operation just the reverse of tbe above.
If, for instance, an engraving is to be copied,
an Impression of the face of the engraving is
taken in wax, by means of a suitable press
the wax having first been properly prepared
In order to give this mold a conducting surface,
wax being a non-conductor, plumbago, in a
finely powdered state, is applied to it by means
of a brush, until the surface to be eleotrotyped
has a complete metallic luster. The copper is
applied to tbe mold, or objeot to be coated, by
a current of electricity, which is generated by a
battery. This is an oblong lead-lined reservoir,
about two or three feet square, by three in length,
and nearly filled with it solution of sulphurio
acid and water. A zlno plate, abont fourteen
inohes square and one-fourth of an inoh in
thickness, is suspended in the solution by means
of a oopper wire, and also a thin perforated
pi a to, composed of copper, coated with silver
and platinum, which is called the silver plate
A second lead-lined reservoir, and somewhat
larger than the first, called the decomposing
trough, is provided, and filled with a solution
of sulphate of copper. Into this solution
placed the mold or objoct to bo eleotrotyped,
which Is connected with the zino plute in the
battery by means of a coppor wire. A plate
of copper is also suspended in this solution,
which is conneoted with a second metallio plate
in the battery.
As soon as these plates are all put in their
respeotive positions, the acid, In cenneotion with
the oxygen of the water, attacks the zino plate,
and a strong chemical action takes plaoe;
the hydrogen of the water is liberated, and
evolved from the surface of the silver plate and
escapes into the atmosphere, while the oxygen
of the decomposed water uuites with the metal
and forms oxyd of zino, and the sulphurio add
attacks the oxyd and converts it into sulphate
The decomposition of the zino develops eleO'
tricity, which surcharges the conducting wires
conneoting the battery with the decomposing
trough, and a circuit is formed. Tbe oopper
held in the solution is deposited upon
mold, the strength of the solution being main
turned by tbe decomposition of the copper
plate by tho aotion of the eleotrlo ourrent, whioh
transforms the oopper plate into sulphate
o ppcr, and this deposit of pure oopper is oon
tinued so long as the battory is supplied with
zino, whioh is the fuel that feeds the apparatus
and develop the oleotricity. To prevent
too rapid decomposition of tbe zino plate
tho battery, it is first coated with mercury,
which prevents the aoid from taking bold of
When the molds have reoeived a copper coating
of sufficient thickness, tho faoing is removed
from the wax, and baokedup with type metal.

most important establishments in Cincinnati.
The building is SO by 98 fect and five stories

Mrs. Sickles' Confession—How it Was
Made and How it was Published.
NEW YORK, April 16, 1859.
To the Editor of the Now York Times:
la justioe to an unfortunato woman, allow
ma to state that the confession of Mr;. Sickles,
apparently written with a cool and almost
heartless deliberation, was indeed the result ot
a long and severe effort at self-control. She
bad previously made (Are several attempts at
its composition, and failed through the vio
lence of her emotions. Only by a resoluta
nerving of herself to the task was she finally
successful. Written, too, for hor husband's
sake, and with a truthful spirit of repentance,
she thonght of no one and nothing else but her
own guilt, which pbe was willing to put in the
darkest hues. Like Adam, she might bar
said, "I was tempted, and therofore did eat."
Out sho ohose to be her own accuser, and thus
make no attempt to palliate her own guilt by
throwing it upon tho author of her ruin. These
are fact, ana tbey place her in an attitude of
truthful heroism which may claim for bor
some kind consideration.
The publication of tht confession hoi filled
Mr. Sickles' heart with the mostnolenantirrief.
Repeatedly he refused urgent solicitations for
a copy of it. While the counsel were pleading
tor it as eridenoe, it was laid on tho table, and
there copied surreptitiously, wither t the knowl
edge of the defence or their olient. Mr. S.
heard soon after that it was being reported to
New York, and sent word to tho telegraph
office f r its suppression; but it was too late.
Ibus the public will exonerate him from in ap
parent unkindness to bis wife, whom be has

Washington, April 14, 1859. The eroatost
sensation of th day was the production of the

assignation-bouse hired by Key, and was em
ployed to do so by tbe brotber-in-law of Key,
Hon. Mr. Fendloton, the elleot was indescri
bable. So damn sine was this to the prosecu
tion, that Carlisle rose, amid profound silence,
aud stated that he had no knowlcdgo of the
transaotion. It is strange that this lock was
discovered in the attio room of some house
in Washington, where it had been sold by the
Thodefensehave succeeded in proving First,
that Key woe in the habit of making signals to
Mrs. bickles for two months and upward.
Second, that ho carried about him keys of the
house, that it is alleged, bo and Mrs. trickle?
visited. It remains to prove that Key and
Mrs. Sickles frequented the house clandestinely,
and this will be sufficient legal evidence to sat
isfy the jury of adultery. If tbe jury are con
vinced of this, the acquittal of Sickles is cer
tain. The prosecution were confounded bv the
disoovery of this look, and it appears that
person who is assisting tbe prosecution, was
one of those who aided in abstracting tbe lock.
This gentleman, with othors concerned, will be
pot on the stand to-morrow, by the defense.
The Third Cut. Cinoinnatians must oease
their erowings if the St. Louis Democrat speaks
truly. Ko longer is Cincinnati the great oen
ter of Western trade and manutaotures it
already eclipsed by St. Louis. If, however,
she must retain the appellation ot yuecu city
of the West, which her loving sons have given
her, St. Louis is henceforth to be regarded
tho Kine of t;ities standing alone in all Ai
majesty without a oity at hit back to back Aim.
The Democrat says: "St. Louis is, in fact,
tbe third city in North America, prospectively
spoaking. We yield the palm to none but New
Y.orK and ban Jc rancisco tbe one on toe At-
lantio and the other on tho Pacific. St. Louis
will ever be the grcut oenter, or, in other words,
the commercial heart of America." There
one drawback, however, as the Democrat con
fe:i : "There is not a singley in tbe world
as large as St. Louis, which has no towns back
ot it, except bt. Louis. N ow, for men to imag
ine that our city, numbering now nearly
hundred thousand inhabitants, will go on im
proving year after year, and that there will
ao towns of importance in the interior, is,
say the least of it, perfectly preposterous.
history of every other city in the world proves
it to be so." Right, old friend, it is not good
for you to be alone.
