POSSIBLE IMPROVEMENTS IN KILLING. I London Spectator j Are no discoveries possible which Bhould radically al'er all the conditions of light ing, an I either render war impossible or give certain victory to those who dire faca auch destructive machines? It ia most improbable. The human race have been studying the art of war for four thousand years, and has discovertd exceedingly lit tle, except the fact that an explosive in a confined spacj will drive a missile a long .way. They have learnnd to thro*v atones scientifically. Since Agiccourt, man has improved on the discovery of gunpowder, but has invented nothing absolutely origi nal. For thirty years the most learned chemists, the most inventive mechanicians, the most tcicntilic soldiers have devoted their minds to this Subject, with a kind of fury of eagerness promoted at once by the love of fame, by patriotism, and by the hope of rewards which, to some of them, like Mr. Whitworth, Sir W. Armstrong and ilc-rr Krupp, have been granted with a lavish hand, ami they have discovered nothing. They have made bigse! guns, end better shells, and more explo>iva powder, and have devised clever ways of keeping the shells oat, but that is all. The way ot killing scldiers is to tire little bullets through a small barrel; the way of de stroying works is to tire big bullets through a big barrel, and that is all. New explo sives have been discovered, but no new way of throwing them for the required distance. If ships ever touched, or nearly touched, a3 in Nelson's time, we suppose a catapult might throw a barrel of nitro glycerine which, exploding downward, would annihilate the enemy's vessel ; but the experiment has rever been tried. A ship which approached so close could ram, and such a barrel, not beiDg driven by an explosive, could be kept off by a wire netting. The only two directions in which even dreamers can fee a probability of much change are the use of electricity or the use of balloons, and of either the prospect is very slight. We can do a gieat deal with the lightning, bn> we ciLiiot throw it, nor is it easy to conceive how it could be darted, except through a conductor. Mr. Urqu hart's dream ot the quiet savant who fought the Capitalists' army willuut weap ons was original, but was only a dream. The Capitalists had mastered the world, and th« i'r<i!«taiiat roso ia revolt, resolved to die rather than be pillaged longer. They ha'! no weapons, the Capitalists own ing all ; but as the Capitalists' army ap proache-1, electricity, shot from unseen batteries, struck every particle of nn^al used by the soldiers, a;i 1 the itrmy.^Bk ished as suddenly and silently as thaWl Sennacherib. That is a mere dream. It is just conceivable that some Mr. Edison might manage so to establish a wire con nection with an ironclad that the whole structure should be full of death giving electricity—be, in fact, a huge wire charged by a dynamo. But it is only conceivable, as is the similar dream —which has grt-atly interested some able mechanicians—of bo arranging mirrors as to cotcjntra^o intolerable hea", heat that would pulverize a diamond, at a co^idera HWtSliatance. The thiDg c^uld be done, we believe, so pffTt.iftiiijLfchat thejery ribs oT an iron ship w«uld dissolve luRnTSTfT/ metal, but nr.t at any distance. la bal loons therfe is a little, and a very little, more hope. It is always a possibility that immense electric force may be concentrated in such a small space that a machine sup ported in the air by baUoonß could be guided at will; and if that were achieved, the enp-iitions of wnr would, of couise, be rica'.ly altered. No cities could be defended against a machine showering dynamite iheUa, armies might be deatroyeJ in a few minutes, end all fortresses must be subterranean structures. In practice, battles would have to be fought in the air and the survivors would be accepted as ir resistible masters. But the more experi encrd a man of science i?, the more he doubts the possibility of making an aerial machine indepfcucnt of the wind, or of csing bnlloons in war, except as he would use s'ecp'es or other high points of ob servation. .— « ♦ liik (!i;eat Telkscopk at Princeton.— The new telescope for the Halsted Observ | atniy, at Princeton, has been mounted j wi'hin tl.e past few weeks, and is now ready for work. I^. iw|[iiilnilii it ranks at present as fourth anioag the great refract ing telescope? of tne world, and second in the United Stateß. I'.s only superiors in size are the Vienna refractor, of twenty »even inches diameter ; the telescope of. the Naval Observatory at Washington, Wenty six inchts ia oiaiiieter, and tile tvlescupeof Mr. Newhall, at Newcastle, in England, which has an aperture of twenty-five incite*. A Lumber of still larger instru ments are indeed under const!uciion, but it will be some time before any of them are actually in place The object glass of the Priaceton telescope ia twenty-three inches in diam< t r, and hai a focal length of thirty feet. The yliss disks were cast by Ftil, in Paris, but tho telesccpa was made by Alvan Clark & Sots, of Cambridge. Though the telescope is a little smaller than the Wash ington equatorial, its mounting is consid erably heavier and firmer, and is im proved in many respects. The regu lator of the driving-clock is unusually I powerful, and, to prevent friction and wear of its pivots, its shaft is iloated ia mercury. The clamps and slow-motions are all managed without temoving the eye from the eye-piece, and the declination cir els ie also read from the eye-end by a new and ingenious arrangement of the makers. The object-glass il peculiar in having its two lenses separated by a space of about seven inches, so as to allow a free circula tion of ail between them, thus greatly diminishing the disturbing effect of changes of temperature. This construction secures also freedom from the "ghests" (formed by reflection between the lenses), which are po troublesome in many large instru ments. The curvesof the lenses are not those usually employed, but are somewhat like those of the Gaussian system, though not so deep. The color and spherical aberration are very perfectly corrected, and the performance of the glass, so far as can be judged from a few nights' worK, is extremely tine. The instrument is, of course, provided with all the usual microme ter.3, eye-pieces, and other accessories, but as its chief occupation, for the present at least, is to be in the line of stellar spec troscopy, special attention has bepn given to the spectrorcope, which is the most powerful ever msde for star work.

' A CURIOUS SNUFF-BOX. [London Society.] Shortly after the breaking out of the French Revolution, ita advocates de nounced our Premier as " an enemy to the human race;" that man "co easy to live with," who sang the song about himßelf called "Billy Pitt, the Tory." His secre tary once told him that a foreigner, who spoke English pretty well, had twice or thrice asked to see him ; but, not look ing like a proper applicant, had been sent away, the great man's time being too precious for him to admit every stracger who, on frivolous pretexts, might seek to gratify an idle curiosity. This person, however, had said he should return in an hour ; the secretary, therefore, thought it his duty to inform Mr. I'itt of such in tention, and aek his further orders in the affair. '• Have the goodness," said the Minister, I "to open the top left-hand drawer in that! cabinet, and bring me its contents." There were a pair of pistols and a moroc- i co case ; opening the Utter he produced a ! snuff-box, in which was set a portrait. "Is that like our visitor?" asked Pitt. "It ia the man, sir," answered the secretary. " Ha, I have expected him for somo days I He ia sent over to assassinate me ; so, when he calls again, let him bo shown up." " Sir !" exclaimed the attached retainer, " will you expose to danger your life on which so much depends ?" " There will be no danger, I thank you ; but you may be within a call, if you please." Accordingly the Frenchman, on his re- | turn, was ushered into the room where j William Pitt sat alone—a loaded pistol in one hand, the miniature in the other. "Mbnsieur Mehee de la Touche," said Pitt, calmly, "you see I am in every way prepared for you. thaaks to an agent em ployed by this Government. Attempt my life, and your own instantly pays the ft>r feit. In any case, I shall have you secured, and given over to the law." The intended assassin stood paralyzed : and dumb at this cool reccptiou. " But," continued Pitt, "there is anoth ! er alternative personal safety and high re* wards are in your power. Sell your sei vices to Great Britain ; make your markc of whatever secret information yon ca procure, that may guard us against th machinations of your country ; be, in fact one of the necessary evils which polic forces us to nse in desperate cases ; do whaf no honorable man could do to save yourse from speedy death; your conscience i atained by purposed murder.

Durand-Cl»ye, a sanitary engineer of I'arip, has published a report on the sys tems which are employed in the German cities of Dautzie, Berlin and Breelau for the final disposal of sewer water. The systems of filtering and of precipitation by chemical agents were tried, but were found not to effect a sufficient purification, and irrigation was finally chosen as furnishiug on the whole the most economical and sat isfactory method. The water is cleaaetil of its grosser solids before beiDg pumped up from the sewers ; it is afterward conducted to the irrigated cities. At Dant/.:c the sew age is turned upon a tract of about 1,250 acres of a sandy, arid soil, and is led arouud beik devoted to the culture of garden vege tables. The surplus water, which ia drained ofTto the Vistula, has been proved to have lost seven-eighths of its organic matter, five sixths of its ammonia and one-half of its mineral impuri ties. The ground has an exceweive ab- Borbicg power, and it has been necessary to box the main conduits to have aay wattr left for the smaller irrigating chan nels. Thus far 417 acres have been enough to absorb all the sewage of tho city, indi cating an absorbmg power of 32,000 cubic meters a year for each acre. The works have been made and ara ktpt up without cost 10 the city for the u% of the irrigated lands for thirty years ; and the land is so '■>■ Itt to gaidenera for from 820 to*2S an acre. The mortality of the city—one of about 100.000 inhabitants— has been reduced 21 pu: ceut. nnrirr Uta-ojWiratttta^tf tow »yt» tern. At Berlin, after some uueatisfactory experiments with chemical agents irriga tion was tried on about fifteen acres of lam.. The tract took in and puritieli"*'' 1 - 028 cubic meters of water in a V** r *■"' vine months, and returned po/M crops The municipality determine/^ to trta 1-. alt of ita sewer- waters in the same way, and bought Awo tract*, one j of 1,740 acre*, the oth/6r, at Oidorf and Friederickenhof, of 2,«W acres. One thou- ] ■and and eighty acre* of the latter tract < only have been usesX. la addition to the cultivated plats,drained basins are pro vided for th«w-water that is not needed on the crotJi<i'in which, after a deposit about a foot_'.:iiick has accumulated, the ground is diried, dug up, and made ready for cultiva tion in the next year. The waters thus treated cease to give off odors and lose all unhygienic properties ; the health of the workmen and the comfortable occupation of the neighboring country seats are not affected by them. The cost of managing the landa is defrayed by the sale of pro ducts, so that the city is only at the ex pecie of pumping up the water, while* it is able to let the lands at from 324 to $31 an acre. The city of Breslaa uses a tract of about 1,200 acres, of ecoh a oharautcr tiut* extra drainage is necessary.

SCIENTIFIC SCINTILLATIONS. Last year Great Britain made nearly 2,700,000 tons of puddled iron and im ported 90,000 tons b«eide. It ia proposed by some very scientific persons to teat the interior of the 03rth in search of natural heat for mechanic*! pur poses, and they propose to sink their Bhaft and mongga in J i; ■■.::. It ia 83id that plaster of Paris of hard ness sufficient to bo employed aa a mold for metal may be made by usiog ten per cent, of alum in tbo water which is in tended to be mixed up with the plaster. Mr. 11. P. Ami rsby asserts thit a largo amount of humus in a soil implies an abundant previous amount of vegetation, and this in its turn implies a soil of at least moderate origmil fertility. Electricity it bow applied to pile-driving. A waterwheel Furniehes the power, wbioh is transmitted by two dynamo-electric ma chines and connecting wires to pile-driver;? at a consiileraM;: distance. The longest , inch rod p.ver made was rolled at the Albany Iron Works recently. It is 283 feet long, plump from end to en 1 and free from flaw* The next longest ro I ever made was 40 feet shorter. A cheap paint ia made for brick walla by simply mixing up good hydraulic cement m water. Tee natural tint is neutral and pleasing, but may.be readily varied.

A lorman paper says that cheese ia made in Tliuriagia and Saxony from tho pulp of bcUcd potatoes mixed with sour milk.

A yonc^ man at Pittsburc: proposes to make nails from Bes'tmer steel, to weich but half as mush as the iron article, and yet be so stiff that they can be driven iu!o the hardest wood and tough enough to clinch, and hai inwnted a machine which is slid to cut them three times as fast as the old kin"j. arc made. IM> C impound aimor plates, iron faced witli^ atetl, will probably be used hy the French Government in building men-of-v^ar.
