BALTIMORE.
FRIDAY, MAY 7, ISSS.
No chief magistrate of Massachusetts ever sunk
so rapidly in public estimation, as did Governor
Hanks when he sacrificed Judge boring to the
clamor of the abolitionists. The course previously
adopted by Governor Gardiner, when pressed to
do the same tiling by the same faction, was firm,
manly, and dignified; and it met—as it deserved—
with a spontaneous expression of approval from
every section of the Union. Governor Banks
might safely have conformed to so excellent a
precedent. But lie who avowed lie could "let
the Union slide," under certain contingencies,
imagined also that, under cover of a law framed
for the express purpose of meeting this case, he
could justify the act he had consented to perform.
Net he well knew that sueli an arbitrary exercise
of power was not in accordance with the public
sentiment of Massachusetts, hut was instigated by
a small body of narrow-minded bigots, who, by
calling in the aid of State legislation, and by Gu
bernatorial co-operation, thus hojK'd to succeed,
not only in removing from office a conscientious
and upright judge, but in evincing their scorn for
the Federal authorities—their power over local func
tionaries, and their contempt for the Federal Consti
tution. Well, the deed was accomplished—and what
followed? That Gov. Banks acquired no reputation
by his servility is universally conceded. That the
Darker-Garrison clique derived neither honor nor
influence from the success of their schemes, the re
actionary spirit they have provoked in Massachu
setts, and the indignant comments of the public
press, emphatically attest. And now what lias
been the fate of Judge boring ? Has lie been forced
to succumb to his oppressors? Has his moral
character been brought into disrepute, or has a
doubt lieen thrown upon his profound legal abili
ty? Not one of these results have occurred. He
was summarily deprived of a local oflire
nothing more. "The force of malice could no
farther go." The effect of this conspiracy to de
grade an eminent man has been to bring him more
prominently before the public; to develope his
sterling qualities; to elicit sympathy, and to
mark him out for higher houors. For doing
what he believed to he his duty as a Federal
ollieer, he was denounced and maligned. It was,
therefore, hut an act of justice on the part of the
Federal Executive to reward in an appropriate man
ner a functionary who had been made to suffer—
not because of his over zeal, hut by reason of his
honesty of purpose, integrity of conduct, and his
prefect know ledge of the laws lie was called upon
to administer.
in the appointment of Judge Loring to the post
of Chief Justice of the Court of Claims, President
Buchanan has justified public expectation and vin
dicated a great principle. If Federal officers are
to be made the victims of local prejudice, it is
proper, in the cause of right, that they should be
sustained by that power on whose behalf they in
curred unjust censure or personal loss. In another
column we republish an article on the subject from
the Boston Courier, one of the ablest edited and
most conservative journals in Massachusetts.
We have heretofore considered the propriety of
publishing the proceedings of the City Council un
der some attractive anil appropriate head, such as
"Facet'ue," "Comicalities," "Witand Humor," or
some other similar caption, and we confess that the
temptation to do so is daily growing upon us.—
Buffoonery appears to be always "in order" in that
august body, and to make a burlesque of legisla
tion seems to lif the chief business of some of the
worthy gentlemen who are styled "the fathers of
the city," but AVIIO certainly cannot he called
"grave and reverend siguiors." Byway of letting
the public judge of the extent of the provocation un
der which we labor, and the greatness of our forbear
ance under the circumstances, Ave give the following
choice selections from our daily reports of the sav
ings and doings of our esteemed couneilmen. In
the First Brunch on the 7th of April, the follow
ing "proceedings" were had:
Mr. Iland.l iNlllcd up the resolution to remove an old
pump on the corner of Howard and Madison streets.
Mt. Wood *r. PnaMeiit, before a vote is hud on that
resolution, let me say a word in Itehalf of that old pump.
| Laughter.] Some twenty-five years since—f renewed laueh
terj-let me gentlemen, have your serious attention—do lend
a serious -ar, for I am serious, ami this subiect touches
nie nearlv. Some twenty five years ago—[laughterj there
stood on the comer of Madison and Howard streets, a no
ble hriek mansion, surrounded ly handsome grounds, and
in front a nohle old pump, in that mansion i first saw the
light of day—through those grounds 1 gambolled in my
youth,and at that pump 1 slaked my thirst when weary from
my youthful sjvorts. The old house has gone to decay—the
grounds are no more as they were of old—hut the foiinda
tion of m<Mlerui/.cd structures, ami nought is now left to
mark the SJML where 1 was burn, save that old pump.
True, the handle is broken off. the sucker is gone, and it
will ]erhaps never give water more, hut it is to me yet a
sacred relic, and I would not sec it harmed. Washington
had his Mount Vcrnou, Jackson his Hermitage, and other
great men like groat places to mark the s|>ot of their birth
—hut remove that pump and there is nothing left to point
out to the passing traveler where
Mr. Talhott—Where the first fleams ef your iufantile
intelligence gladdened the earth.
Mr. Wood—Exactly so; and if, my fellow-mcmliers, your
hearts are so hard that prose will not prevail to soften
them in behalf of this pump, 1 invoke the powers of poe
try :
Oh ! gentlemen, spare that pump—
Touch not its single bow;
In youth it watered ine,
And 1 11 defend it now !
Mr. Glanvillc \ move, Mr. President, that if the pump
IK* removed, the stock be presented to Mr. Wood, and that
a marble slab be there placed to mark the spot of his
birth.
Mr. Ilynes—l hope. Mr. President, that it will not only
he presented to him, hut erected as a monument of his
greatness, and a suitable railing placed around to pro
tect it.
The vote was then taken by yeas and nays, and the res
olution adopted by 11 in the affirmative to 7 against its re
moval.
In the report of llie "Proceedings" of the Second
Branch, on the 2lst of April, we find the follow
ing:
Mr. Sullivan called up the ordinance for the encourage
ment of volunteer military corps in the city of Baltimore.
Mr. Simms thought the language of the ordiuunce am
biguous.
Mr. Bierlwwer—Mr. President, the language is just as
plain as the nose on my face, and you can all see that.
( Laughter.) Neither sledge-hammers, pick-axes nor tooth
picks can take that out of my head. (Renewed laughter.)
Mr. Cordon, (in his seat)— That's so, Johnny Roach.
on motion of Mr. Herring, the ordinance was laid on the
table.
Mr. Bierbower called up the ordinance relating to goats.
Mr. Herring called the attention of the Branch to the
second .-ection of the ordinance, which enacts that the
owner or owners of any goat found running at large shall
forfeit and pay two dollars. He wished to know whether
the language of the ordiuance related to "the owner" run
ning at large, or the goat running at large, and inquired
from Mr. Bierx>wer whether in that gentleman s opinion
it was all right.
Mr. Biertower—Perfectly clear to my mind.
Mr. Herring—l renew my question, and pause for a
reply.
Mr. Bierbower—You may keep on pausing; I have
nothing to say.
The ordinance then passed.
Mr. Simms then called up the ordinance to restrain dogs
from running at large.
Mr. Bierbower moved to amend by inserting a proviso
to the effect, "that none of the sections of this ordinance
shall deprive any dog from having his day."
The ordinance passed without the amendment.
From the "Proceedings" of the First Branch,
on the nth of May, we extract as follows:
Mr. Heali' called up the revised ordinance to repress cer
tain evil practices within the city limits.
Mr. Mukehart moved to amend by offering the subjoined
section:
"And be it enacted and ordained , That from and after
the passage of this ordinance, it shall not be lawful for any
unmarried female over the age of fifteen years, to appear
on any street, lane or alley of the city, with skirts exceed
ing fottr feet in diameter, under a penalty of being pro
hibited from having a beau, for any widow to wear skirts
exceeding Jive fetL in diameter, under the penalty of being
prohibited from having a second husband—nor for any
married woman to ap)>ear with skirts exceeding six feet y
under such {tenuity and deprivations as her husband may
see pro)ter to inflict—one half to the informer, and the
other half to the person or persons who can get it."
I he chair ruled the amendment out of order.
Mr. \N ood—As this is a growing evil the matter had bet
ter IM* considered.
Mr. Talbott—lf the chair rules it out of order, I will be
compelled to take an ap{ienl.
WUI ,mve to take wn.
Mr. Talhott—l hen I must ap|tcal.
President I cannot see how you can constitutionally
stipulate the room the ladies shall occupy on the footway.
Mr. Hamilton—Does the constitution allow them not
only to run at large, but to occupy so large a share of the
:iv t
Mr. Dukehart—l withdraw the amendment.
Mr. Beale—lt is now the property of the Branch, and
the gentleman cannot withdraw it unless by consent
Though I would allow the ladies the largest liberty, the
expansions of the present day are becoming too enormous
to pass unheeded.
The amendment and the ap|>eal from the decision of the
chair, were then withdrawn by consent, aud the ordinance
adopted without the hoop appendage.
Comment on the above woultl lie superfluous.
Our extracts speak for themselves, and the only
question to lie considered by the public is, whether
the quality of the wit contained in them, is worth
the $1.50, which we believe is the per dirm of
Council men.
PHILADELPHIA. MUNICIPAL ELECTION. —The muni
cipal election returns in Philadelphia exhibit the
following result: For Alexander Henry, the J'eo
pie's candidate for Mayor, 32,008; for Richard
Vans, the present incumbent, 28,074— majority for
Henry, 3,994.
A veritable seal was caught in Chnumont Rav,
Jefferson county, New 1 ork, on Monday last. How
it came there is a puzzler, it weighed 85 pounds,
and measured three and a half feet in length. It
had a beautiful coat of gray, mottled with spots of
a lighter hue, a bull dog nose, with teeth to match,
and a couple of holes in the side of the head in the
place where the cars ought to be. The animal is
the first of the kind ever caught in that section.
MUSIC AND THE DRAMA.
At the HOLIIDAY STREET, Miss CRSII MAN'S engage
mcnt is rapidly drawing to a close. On Monday,
she played to a crowded house her great role of
Meg Merrilien, which she repeated on Tuesday and
Wednesday nights. The work of adopting the plot
of Guy Mannering to the stage was performed by-
Daniel Terrv, a personal friend of Sir Walter Scott,
and so badly done as to draw from the latter the
remark that " his novel had been Terry-Jicd into a
play." Anybody who has seen Mr. Terry's "musi
cal drama in three acts," will admit the justice of
the criticism. It has neither head nor tail—neither
a beginning, a middle nor an end. It lacks both
continuity and interest, and neither in in its dia
logue nor its action, does it afford the slightest scope
for good acting, in the true sense of the word.—
That Miss CISIIMAN should have hcen able to make
such a play popular, or to gain a reputation by its
representation is remarkable. Yet this she has done.
In Edinboro', the original Dominie Sam/won, old
Mackie we think it was, expressed to Miss CUSHMAN
his regret that " Sir Walter should na hae seen her
Meg Merrilien; —he had na ony idea o' the capabili
ties o' the part." The further compliment paid to
the actress by the same actor was one, the force of
which can only be appreciated by those who have
witnessed Miss CUSHMAN'S impersonation of the
character. "Ye quite tak' the breath out o' my
body wi' yer acting " said Mackie, and we do not
doubt it. In many passages, Miss CUSHMA.N'S
acting is quite as terrific as the play. Yet, as we
have said, it is not acting, at least, not such acting as
Miss CUSHMAX has shown herself quite equal to, as for
example, in her Queen Katherinr, which we are free
to say we think incomparably her best character.—
liny Mannering is rather a succession of grotesque,
and sometimes striking tableaux rirantn, in which
the wrinkled old beldam, Meg Merrilien, is the prin
cipal figure, while a jovial farmer in a scarlet waist
coat and drab top-coat,an eccentric pedagogue in rus
ty black with a pewter-lieaded cane, a piratical look
ing smuggler, "half devil, half Dutchman," and a
motley crew of gentlemen, ladies, soldiers, gipsies,
peasants, Ac., fill up thepicture. Meg Merrilien her
self attitudinizes, rather than acts. In the third scene
of the second act, when she makes her first appear
ance, while Bertram and Dinmont are seated at a
table in the gipsey camp, eating and drinking, ac
cording to the stage direction, she merely "darts
from behind the tent, when Bertram speaks, advances
softly a step or two, and gazes intently on him."—
This is her cue throughout the play. In the fifth
scene of the same act, when Bertram and JMnmont
are attacked by Hatteraiek and his crew, ''Meg Mer
rilien suddenly appears upon an eminence, between
the parties, and waves off the gipsies, who shrink
back at her signal." Then, when the scuflle is
over, " Meg disappears." it is the pantomime
rather than the play—the wonderful riainemhlnnce
of Miss CUSHMAN'S impersonation of an old hag,
rather than any artistic delineation of human life
and passion, that makes an impression upon the au
dience and marks the performance of the actress.
\ et we do not deny that the pantomine is perfect,
and that Miss CUSHMAN does the Gipsey hag to the
life, and our strictures therefore apply not to
her acting, but to the play itself. She does all
that either M r. Terry or Sir Walter Scol t have given
her to do. t\ hat we wish to combat is the popu
lar but the most mistaken notion that Meg Merrilien
is Miss CUSHMAN'S greatest character. It is nothing
of the sort. Miss CUSHMAN is something more than
a mimic;—she is an actress. She can not onlv
"look" and "dress" a part, but play one. Take
her Queen Katharine , for example, and compare
or rather contrast it with her Meg Merrilien. In
the former part she has a great author to interpret
—the play, and conflict of human passions, and the
outraged feelings of a woman and a queen, to deline
ate, —and the terrible spectacle of natural death,
slow, lingering, and painful, to portray—and she
does it all, artistically and grandly. The trial
scene, or the death scene in Queen Katharine, are
either ot them worth the whole performance of
Meg Merrilien, and if there be any of her charac
ters which wo should like to see repeated for three
nights, it is the former and not the latter.
THE APPOINTMENT OK JUDGE POKING.
f From the Jin ton Courier. ]
Some very much troubled because the
appointment of Judge boring to the post of Chief
Justice ol the Gourt of Claims is in effect such a de
cisive rebuke to our own Executive. What of it?
We know of no public act more deserving of rebuke
than that piece of enormous wrong, against which
we so often and so earnestly protested, and which
excited all but universal indignation throughout
the country.
We congratulate Judge boring heartily on the
appointment, and the country upon securing the ser
vices q! a person so deserving anil so admirably
qualified to till the place. In this instance thecom
mon reproach of the ingratitude of republics does
not apply. Displaced bv their inveterate hostility
to the law which Judge boring faithfully adminis
tered, his opponents, while in power, would have
disregarded complaints, as they refused to listen to
remonstrances and reason, lint elevated, as it was
the duty and privilege of the President to raischim,
to a better place, he is a living rebuke to his vindic
tive pursuers and their instruments.
411 equal weight is the objection, that sentiments
of hostility are thus to he aggravated between the
State and the tinted States, because the President,
forsooth, exercising his rightful discretion and con
stitutional privilege, lias seen lit to appoint to a
federal olliec a gentleman whom (lev. Banks chose
to remove from one held under the authority of the
State. This is mere schoolboy's talk. Besides, the
State (we say nothing of its present rulers) will un
doubtedly feel the highest gratification at this hap
py selection. Nobody will pretend that any are to
he displeased hut such as voted for Gov. Banks—
and we know multitudes even of those, wlio uttered
curses both loud and deep against him. for the fla
grant injustice ot the removal of Judge Boring.—
But the majority ol the people did not vote for him.
His vote was G0,958 —the combined opposition, 09,-
898. The State, we say, will rejoice at this ap
pointment. Then, of those who took an active part
in pressing the removal, we have never heard the
number estimated higher than eight thousand peti
tioners, led on by Harrison and the negro ex-law
yer, Bradley. We never analyzed the petitions,
but the examination of the names upon one from
the town of Weymouth, furnished to the ( Courier
ot March 17th, by an "Old Farmer," develop
ed the manner in which even such a show of
numbers was contrived for exhibition. In that
town there are IG4O voters; upon the petition were
80(1 signatures; our correspondent showed, that of
these, 191 only were voters; that there were boys,
195: and "females and children from the cradle up
wards," 414; —making in all the round number of
800. Such is the public sentiment of Massachusetts,
ridden as she has been of late by charlatans and
political quacks, whom we have a most abiding con
fidence she will hurl headlong from her sore and
overburdened hack the coining fall. Such is the
likelihood that this act of the President will tend
to aggravate any unpleasant feelings between the
State and the Nation. In our opinion, the Presi
dent could have done few things better suited to
foster the right sort of kind and geuerous feelings
between poor abused and cheated Massachusetts
and our noble Union, than by thus rescuing a wor
thy citizen of both from the jaws of liis vindictive
pursuers, and rendering him and his State retribu
tive justice,—rebuke whomsoever it will.
MISCELLANEOUS.
The Cincinnati I'ricc Current contains a statement
of the exports of provisions from the United States,
from January 1 to April 1. The aggregate, re
duced to pounds, show a falling off 29,7H5,350.
This decrease is equal to about 20(1,000 hogs; hut as
an cli'ect we have the deficit in the stocks in the
country on the Ist of November, the latter being
equal to at least 300,000 hogs. Taking the increase
in the ling crop and putting the figures together,
the result is as follows: Excess in crop of hogs,
580,000 head; decrease in foreign exports, (equal 1
300,000 head; total 580,000. Deduct deficit in old
stocks, 300,000, and the net excess w ill he 280,000
head. This exhibit, as regards the net excess, is based
upon the supposition that the home consumption
has been equal to that of last year.
A respectable and wealthy farmer of Chester
county, i'enn., visited Philadelphia on Thursday
last, with his eldest daughter, a girl of about nine
teen years of age, for the purpose of purchasing
her wedding suit. She left her father for the put"
pose of examining some bonnets, with instructions
to meet him soon afterward in the upper part of the
city. Since that moment she has not been heard of,
although every effort has been made by the friends
of the family to learn her whereabouts. The ques
tion is, has she eloped or been murdered?
A LARUE ESTATE LEFT WITHOUT A DIRECT lIEIR.
r l he death ol Jesse Barber, aged four years and
nine months, is announced in the Chicago papers.
This little girl was the last surviving member of the
family of the late Jabcz Barber, of Chicago, who,
with his wile and daughter, perished in the Collins
steamer Pacific, in 1851!. At the time of his death
his property was estimated at about $250,000, and
has increased in value to $400,000. Bv his will the
entire property fell to the infant Jessie. In case of
her death it was to revert to the next of kin. The
nearest of kin are Mary Ann, Harriet and Lucv
Barber, of Birmingham, England, and Eliza Bell, of
Simcoe, C. E. These ladies, who are in straitened
circumstances, will receive something over $lOO,OOO
each.
For the last year or two, there has been a defi
ciency in the supply of Chinese fire-crackers, ow ing
to the rebellion in China. The consequence has
been a great advance in the price of these indispensa
ble articles for the Fourth of July; hut this year
there is likely to be an abundance, which will bring
. t ,, e l p^'o e . ( i own - Ermn July 1, 1857. to February
i'-\' ,'V' e " ( ' re shipped from I long Kong to
the United States 140,301 boxes of fire crackers,
against 4,9<8 in the previous year, and 85,320 box
es m the year before that.
The New Orleans Delta states that Lients. Belcher
and West, of General Walker's last expedition to
Nicaragua, who we-e under bonds to stand trial for
a violation of the neutrality laws, although their
securities were perfectly willing to remain on their
bonds, delivered themselves up to the marshal and
requested to bo sent to prison, stating that if the
government intended to keep them there from time
to time they were determined they should he sup
ported by the same. The marshal accord : ngly took
them in charge.
On Friday last the ship John Fatten cleared at
Savannah, iia., for St. Petersburg, with 1,7GG,G28
lbs. of cotton.
The resolution in relation to our difficulties, with
1 araguay, has been laid on the table, in the Senate,
THE DAILY EXCHANGE, MAY 7, 1858.
SCIENCE AN D ART.
TREATMENT or STEEL. —AII steel expands in har
dening, but that the most which is most highly con
verted, and in direct proportion to the amount of
carbon it received in that process. No other gen
eral rule can be given for the treating of steel for
hardening than this—that it should in all cases be
heated as regular as possible to the lowest tem
perature at which that particular kind of steel will
harden, and as little as possible beyond it; for the
more highly converted the steel is, the lower the
temperature at which it will harden. The harden
ing of very bulky articles, such as the face of an
anvil, cannot be effected in the same way as smaller
articles by plunging them into water,—for the
length of time required in cooling will be almost
certain to leave the middle of the face soft, where it
is of the most consequence that it should be hard.
Where the anvil forge is worked by water power,
they possess the best means of hardening them; the
anvil, properly heated, should be placed in a water
tank, face upwards, under a shuttle connected with
the mill-dam—the shuttle drawn, and a heavy and
continuous stream of water let fall from a height of
ten or twelve feet upon the anvil face, which effec
tually hardens the surface. A red hot anvil plung
ed into water, would, for a time, be surrounded bv
an atmosphere of steam, which would prevent its
direct contact with the cold water, whereby its
cooling would be retarded too much to harden the
face; and hence the advantage ofa continuous stream
of cold water.
TESTING THE QUALITY OF STEEL.— The good quali
ty of steel is shown by its being homogeneous, be
ing easily worked at the forge, by its hardening and
tempering well, by its resisting or overcoming
forces, and by its elasticity, To ascertain the first
point, the surface should be ground and polished
on the wheel, when its luster'and texture will ap
pear. The second test requires the givins> it a
heat suitable to its nature and state of conversion.
The size and color of the grain are best shown by
taking a bar torged into a razor form, hardening
and tempering it, and then breaking off the thin
edge in successive bits with a hammer and anvil.—
If it hail been fully ignited onlv at the end, then,
after the hardening, it will display, on fracture, a
succession in the aspect of its gains from that ex
tremity to the other,as they are whiter and larger
at the former than the latter. The other qualities
become manifest on filing the steel, using it as a
chisel for cutting iron, or bending it under a heavy
weight. Kinman long ago defined steel to be anv
kind of iron which, when heated to redness, and
then plunged into cold water, becomes harder.—
But several kinds of cast iron are susceptible of
such hardening. Every malleable and flexible iron,
however, which may lie hardened in that wav, is a
steel. Moreover, steel may be distinguished from
pure iron by its giving a dark gray spot when a
drop of dilute nitric acid is let tall on its surface,
while iron affords a green one. Exposed to the air,
steel rusts less rapidly than iron.
IMPROVED LENSES AND REFLECTORS. —It is well
known that Buffon, desirous of repeat ing the exper
iment of Archimedes with a burning glass, endeav
ored to construct a lens of water, of large diameter.
J wo plates ol glass, of great thickness, were curved
by the heat ofa concave metallic plate, worked and
polished, and then fitted together with a border of
metal, and tilled with distilled water. Butl'on thus
made a lens one meter in diameter, and of great
power. But lie pursued it no further, on account
ot the difficulty ot the work, and the enormous ex
pense of polishing the rough surface of the glass,
the material being also rendered brittle by the sec
ond heating.
Since then there have been attempts to blow a glass
lens in a mould of metal made in '1 halves,but the result
has been imperfect, the glass uneven giving no dis
tinct focus. There has, however, been a recent im
provement of great importance, which consists in
using, for constructing the lenses, a circular plate
of giass. and a section from a sphere blown with
great care—applying this to the plate, and closing
them together in a circle of metal, and putting wai
ter between, or some other transparent liquid. It
forms a plano-convex lens, which may he economi
cally made, and has nearly the parity and perfec
tion, without the cost, of lenses of massive glass.—
An improved kind ot retlector is also now made,
the inventor employing sections of glass more or
less concave, cut from a sphere, anil having
on the convex part a rich plating of silver from
electric deposition.
STEAM BOILERS. —A new kind of steam boiler is
announced as among the recent mechanic inven
tions of the day. The boiler is of cylindrical form,
and is terminated by hemispherical, or nearly
hemispherical ends. This boiler is set in its casing
of brick work in a vertical position, and the hot air
and the fire are made to circulate about and through
the boiler in the following manner:—The firiTis
conducted from a couple of puddling or mill fur
naces through two Hues, and delivered near the
bottom of the boiler. After being made to circulate
about the vertical sides of the cylindrical boiler, the
fire enters a horizontal line, passing through the
boiler at a point a little higher than its middle. The
tire enters the horizontal llue at both ends anil pas
ses up a vertical line or chimney, which is situated
in the axis of the boiler, and opens into the horizon
tal Hue. A damper is situated at each end of the
horizontal Hue, anil by the dampers the draught
may be regulated. That part of the vertical chim
ney which is within the boiler is surmounted with
an airspace, that is, there is an annular layer of air
between the chimney and the boiler, the 'chimney
being isolated, so far as its temperature is concern
ed, from the upper part of the boiler. The isolating
air space descends to a point belmv the water level
of the boiler, and any tendency which would other
wise attend the overheating of the chimney is
avoided.
.NOVEL APPARATUS FOR VENTILATING.— A novel
and ingenious plan of securing heat in a pure state
has been patented, and consists in supplying the
apartment to he heated with an air which'has been
heated by passing through a stove or apparatus
constructed as follows: An external air-chamber
having its outlet opening into the apartment to he
w armed, envelopes an inner chamber or tubes, in
which the gas or other heat producing combustible
is to he burnt. The temperature of the air passing
into the room is raised during its circulation
through this outer air-chamber, by contact with the
heated surface of the inner chamber or tubes. The
outlet of the latter conveys the products of combus
tion awav from the apartment, so that tliev may
not vitiate its atmosphere, and air is admitted to
support combustion through valves, by which the
supply can be regulated at discretion. For venti
lating apartments, the apparatus is placed in com
munication with the vitiated air occupying the up
per part of the room on the one hand, and with the
external atmosphere on the other hand by means of
pipes, the draught caused by the lieat conveyiii"
such vitiated air away. If lieat and ventilation are
required conjointly, the inner or combustion cham
ber only is placed in communication with the upper
part of the room, using the air thus derived for the
purpose of supporting combustion, leaving the ex
ternal or air-chamber to furnish a supply "of warm
air.
Til ANSPAREXT E N AME I, I'IIOTOOItAPHS.—A nilVC'l
anil elegant adaptation of the photographic art has
recently boon brought out in London, and termed
transparent enamel photographs. Transparency is
attained by fixing sheets of enamel upon "lass sur
faces, the two funning one plate. Upon one enamel
face the picture is taken, the surface having been
rendered sensitive by the ordinary process, 't hen,
when inverted, the glass becomes a ready-made
protection for the pictures on one side, and another
sheet of glass may be placed at the back or not, at
pleasure. The enamel surface will also take water
colors. and when thus painted, the effect is scarcely
inferior to that ot ivofy. These colors are after
wards fixed by a peculiar process. The avdantages
thus secured are transparency, capability of being
perfectly cleansed, and, as it'is contideiitly stated")
durability of colors. The purity and delicacy of the
result may be well imagined, and will doubtless
bring the discovery into use for ornamental win
dows, lamp-shades, and all other transparencies.
