A tfctr Departure In Pc ftcngerBoat * ,
[ Now York Letter. ]
The vessel that is exciting wide intercsl
among the Long Island sound steam-
boatmen is the now large sidewheelei
for the New York fc Providence line.
The fltcamcr is built of wood , and is 305
feet long over all , 42 feet beam , and
1U foot in depth.
But the great attraction , the novel
feature about the new craft , is the
engine , which is an experiment hero.
It is the first of its typo that ever was
built in this countryj being designated
as an oscillating , compound surface -
face condensing , direct acting side-
wheel engine. This typo ol
ungino has always been used by
sidewhccl steamers in England , and it
has many advantages over the beam en
gine that is so common to American
uteamboats. The oscilating engine occu
pies less room , and the weight of the
machinery is carried much lower down
than that of the beam engine , which
adds immensely to the vessel's stability.
The Jtoaches arc furnishing the machin
ery , and there are to be eight tubular
bodies capable of sustaining eighty
pounds pressure. The engines consist of
one set of oscillating cylinders , the low
pressure one being seventy-eight inches
in diameter and the high pressure forty-
two inches , with ten feet six inches
stroke of piston. The stroke also excites
much comment , owing to its length.
As can l > e seen by professional men ,
the feature of the stroke of the engines
is strictly American , being so much
longer lhan the English stroke , which
would be about six feet. The long
stroke has always boon much favored by
American marine engineers , who claim
for it a higher degree of economy than
the short-stroke engine can produce.
This departure will be watched with
much interest by many experts in en
gine economy , some of whom assert that
so long a stroke for this type of engine
is incompatible with a practical
efficiency. The steamer will have feath
ering paddle wheels , and is expected to
bo fast with a limited consumption of
coal. She will-begin running this fall.
Her codt is placed at § 230,000.
The Kins of Rat * .
[ Philadelphia Record. ]
"A few years ago , " said Jack Gre
gory , the veteran rat-catcher , "my dogs
caught a rat down at the Washington
ayenuograin elevator which was much
bigger than a cat. It was two feet long ,
and weighed twelve pounds. He must
have been quito old , and unusually fat.
I guess he was the king rat about the
elevator. I was very anxious to capture
him alive , and it was hard work to drive
the dogs off , so eager were they to put.
an end to him. He had fought them
hard , notwithstanding his age , and the
dogs had their dander up. I managed
to drag them away , and then I throw a
net around him .and brought him home
to Camden. I doctored him for three
wcolcs and his wounds healed pretty
well. A. saloon-keeper near the old
navy-yard made me an offer of $20 , and
I sold the rat to him to place on exhibi
tion. He did not make much by the
venture , as the saloon-keeper's wife was
afraid of the big rat , and , being anxious
to get rid of the animal , poisoned it.
While the animal was on exhibition
there was a sign displayed on the iron
cage in which it was confined , saving :
'Don't fool with the rat. ' This injunc
tion was rather unnecessary , for all the
customers willingly refrained from pok
ing their fingers between the bars to
stir him up. His laoks were enough to
[ Londoii Cor. New York Sun. ]
In the seclusion of the domain of Farn-
borough the ex-Empress Eugenie lives
buried in regret regret of the magical ,
unexpected , ephemeral past ; regret of
the husband who gave her power and
lost it ; regret of the young son through
whom alone it might have been recon
quered , and about the manner of whose
iloath she has been ever so strangely , so
determinedly , so generously silent.
This is , however , what is told as. fol
lowing her arrival at Faruborough :
Col. , who commanded the regi
ment in which the ill-fated prince impe
rial served , owns considerable property
in the immediate neighborhood of the
estate purchased by the empress. When
she had finally settled in her new abode
the colonel craved permission to conform
to custom and to lay his neighborly homage
age at her feet. A fortnight after the
interview his property was advertised

"Yea , sir , " said an enthusiastic citizen
of a new western town , "we've got a
right smarftown , stranger.Vhyj" he
continued , impressively , "it's only six
months old yet an'it's got two hotels ,
forty-eight beer saloons , twenty-seven

and the best half-milo track west of the

"You mean them buildin's with a long

Cremation a XccossHy.
[ Philadelphia Record. ]
The most ardent opponent of crema
tion , if ho will note the rapid growth of
the silent cities , will find hirasjlf con
vinced against his will that some other
method of disposing of the bodies of the
dead will in the near future become an
obsolete necessity.Take , for example ,
Calvary cemetery , ! New York. Thirty-
six years ago the first grave was m.ido
and the cemetery Avails enclosed only
ten acres of ground. Now it has been
increased to between three and four
hundred acres , and the interments al
ready reach , about 500,000 , which num
ber is increasing at the rate of fifty a
day. And thi $ is only one of New York's
many burial places.
