The India-rubber Tires to Wheels.?Refer ring to the invention of India-rubber tires to coach and wagon wheels, the editor of the Louisville Courier, himself a poet, says: "Who will not cry all hail to such an invention? One great nuisance of the city will thus Ik-dispensed with. Noise must tlee. News will have a chance at existence. The sick need not shuffle off the mortal coil amid the clatter of all sorts of wheeled contrivances. A quiet lite and quiet death can then be had in the town, provided the conscience is approving. India-rubber, after all, is the great benefactor. It deserves an epic in its praise. Nothing less could rhythm half its merits. We respectfully suggest to that rising Scottish poet, Mr. Alexander Smith, India-rubber as his next thesis." > Great Gunpowder Blast.?One of the greatest feats in the blasting of rocks by gunpowder which perhaps ever took place in the north of Ireland, was achieved on the line of the Londonderry and Coloraine railway, at Downhill. The rock was blasted at the headland known as the "Cove," about a quarter of a mile seaward from Downhill mansion-house, and two hundred yards westward of the "Temple." On either side of the tunnel, and about half way from each end, a large hole, somewhat in the shape of the letter T, was cut out of the solid rock. The innermost part of this aperture, or the head of the letter T as it were, was a chamber twelve feet by thirteen. In this chamber were deposited fifteen hundred weight three quarters of blasting powder, or thirtyone and a half hundred weight in the two. Con iiected with the powder in each ot the chambers were wires communicating witli a galvanic battery, which was placed at a distance of twenty-four yards outside the tunnel. Beyond the battery again, and in the face of a neighboring cliff, a small cave was hewn out, in which the parties who communicated with the battery could lie down and be safely protected from the effects of the blast. Just as it struck 5 o'clock the loud report of a gun told that all was ready. Precisely at ten minutes after 5 o'clock the outline of the head-line was observed to move. In one or two moments more a loud deej) rumbling as of thunder, followed by a sharp report, was heard, and then a volume of smoke was seen to rise over the scene of explosion. When all was still again, those who could rmi hastened to the spot, and on the smoke clearing away there lay, in millions of fragments, the rock which, but a few minutes before, seemed imperishable as the hills. From data furnished us by Mr. Dugan, of Articlave, and by one of the engineers of the line, we made a calculation to the effect that 330,000 cubic feet, or 2,500 tons oOarc^,; were dislodged by this blast. So soon as the debris is removed, the line will then be clear from Coleraine to Derry; and we expect that in the course of a few weeks more it will be open for traffic between both places.?Coleraine (Ireland) Chronicle. The Fishery Question,?It is stated that the people of the lower provinces have earnestly peti- i tioned the Homo vovernmont to withdraw tlmir I naval force, which lias heen sent, to the fishing ' grounds, to keep the Americans from coming ' within three leagues of the shore, if they have f not done it alreadj', wc have 110 doubt such will ^ be the fact. The truth is, says the Portland Stule of .Maine, the Provincial government have made a grand v mistake, and are now beginning to reap the le- / gitimatc consequences of their own doings. Tlie a ]>rincipal value of fish arises from the process of a curing them. When vessels were allowed to land 8 and cure their fish on shore, it gave employment to their people at home. ^ Now the Yankee fishermen lets himself out to 1 a provincial master, who runs his vessel as soon as loaded into one of our own ports, pays the duty of g twenty per cent, ad valorem on fresh fish?a merely nominal sum?and the Blue-nose waits in vain for hia accustomed labor of curing and salting, &c., i &c., which gave employment to so many of the h people 011 the Nova Scotia and New Brunswick f' shores. This labor is now done in the United ! States, and the provincial ports arc deserted, or ' comparatively so, where a valuable trade was for- t merlv enjoyed. c This is a practical view of the question that j may, after nil, put the diplomatists of the pro- 1 vinces on the right track, j [Gloucester (Mass.) Aries, July 30. 1 i Rf.covf.ry of the Booy of ovf. of tiif. Men Lost at Niaoars Fai.i.s.?The body of Andrew ' Hermann, whose sad fate at the Falls excited so ; much attention, ha ; been recovered. It was found , near the landing of the "Maid of the Mist.," below the suspension bridge. The bead and body were much mangled?a sharp stone, or other oh jcct, having pierced the body, either in its fearful descent or afterwards. The facts of the case, as elicited from the evidence of Mr. Brown, a resident at Niagara Falls, are that three Germans in his employ were engaged in boating sand to 1 French's Landing, which was used in building at ' the Falls. On Monday evening they went to the j Falls, and there got somewhat intoxicated, al- ( though they usually sustained the reputation of being sober and industrious laborers. Returning from the Falls to their boat, they put out into the river about nine o'clock in the evening for their own amusement . Concluding they had not sufficient canvass, they returned to shore, and one of the three started for the Falls to obtain more, the other two again putting out into the river. On the return of the third the boat was nowhere to he seen, and its fate was not known until the next morning. Wovderftti. Escape.?A few days ago as a lumper was at work in the attic of the five-storv I building, 43 Hanover street, his hands slipped from a package which he was handling, and lie fell through the scuttle to the basement, striking c upon some empty boxes, but, wonderful to say, | lie was but comparatively little hurt! tie walked into the oonnting-room, and, after sitting a few minutes, got up, saying he thought he would not 1 work any more that, day, and went home. Since then he lias attended to his business as usual. ' [Ronton Travrlltr.

By the escapo of gas from r broken pipes, it hfta been found that all trees j within fifty feet of * leakage have been killed. Traveller* Guide. Departure qf Cars and Steamboats from Washington.

It is situated on an elevation , or spur of the majestic Blue Kidge Mountain, in the county of Jefferson, five miles south of Charlestown, the county scat. Passengers leaving Baltimore or Washington by ' (he morning train of cars will arrive at Harper's Ferry at half-past eleven a. in., from thence in the Winchester and Potomac railroad cars, ten miles to Charlestown, where a twelve-passenger coach will receive and convey them into Charlestown, and, if desired, to the Springs to dinner, over a good road and through a lovely country. The analysis made by the late Dr. De Butts from one hundred grains of the water from the main fountain, afforded 63 grains of sulphate of lime, 10 j grains carbonate ol lime, 23 j grains of sulphate of "magnesia, (epsom salts,) 1 grain of the muriate of magnesia, 1 grain muriate of soda, 3 10 grains sulphate of iron, and 7-10 grains of carbonate ol iron. From the above analysis the waters of Shannondale may very properly be classed among the Saline Chalybeates?a combination of the most valu able description in the whole ransre of mineral waters. It may therefore be positively asserted, without exaggeration or fear of contradiction, that no mineral water within the limits of the United States possesses the same constituent parts, or is a more salutary and efficient purgative, than the water of Shannondale Springs This water acts as gently as the mildest aperient, without giving rise to those unpleasant sensations of pain and de bility so often occasioned by ordinary cathartics, prepared by the most skilful physicans. The free use of this water acts almost immediately upon the skin and kidneys, removes worms, relieves the convalescent from bilious or other fevers, dyspepsia, dropBical swellings, calculous affections, hemorrhoid^ scrofula, indigestion, rheumatism, loss of appetite, exhaustion, general debility, gravelly concretions, strictures, and a variety of other diseases to which man is subject; and it is freely acknowledged by all who have been afflicted with any of the above diseases that the free use of the Shannondale waters have effected peripanent cures. .
