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,

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
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. '

THIS healthy and beautiful Watering Place ,
will be under the personal superintendence of
the undersigned during the present summer, who ,
will use every effort in his power to render it one
of the most attractive and agreeable watering ,
places in Virginia. 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

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

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.
