THE RAILWAY OVER MONT CENIS.
The principles of railroad communication
are receiving an unexpected development.—
Between France and Italy, as poets sing and
conquerors discover, nature has interposed the
Alps and snow. So, in the Franco-ltalian
Railway, running by Mont Cenis, there is what
is called “a break,” rather a cool way of ex
pressing the fact that the Alps themsetves run
across the line. Of course the natural idea oi
railway engineers was to bore through (his
obstacle by a grand tunnel, upwards of seven
miles in length. Of this prodigious work
more than lour miles have actually been com
pleted, but it is calculated that even under the
most iavorable circumstances eight years must
elapse before the whole tunnel can be opened.
Meanwhile the mountain is crossed by a com
mon road, not a bad road tor such a place, but
on the cqgtptary, a very good one. Perhaps no
mountain To ad could be much better, but the
“break” is, of course, a terrible obstacle to
traffic asnow-a-days understood. This bit of
turnpike is about 47 miles long, and so steep
and difficult that nine hours in summer and
nearly eleven in winter are allowed tor the
journey from one end to the other. Indeed,
in winter the passage is uncertain in the ex
treme, the heavy diligences cannot be dragged
or guided over the snow and ice, and Bledges
are used instead of them. Under these cir
cumstances of annoyance and delay it was
suggested that a railway should be tried upon
the mountain itself, and the Report which we
publish in our extra half-sheet to-day leaves
us in little doubt about the success of the
project.
'l he road over Mont Cenis is so good and so
wide that there is room upon it for the pro
jected line without hindrance to the ordinary
traffic, but it is not proposed simply to run lo
comotive engines over the common highway.
There is to be a real railway laid down; indeed,
something more than a railway, which, per
haps, we may best describe as a railway and a
half. In this lies the secret of the newly ap
plied principle. If the reader on his next
journey will look at the engine which is to
draw his train, he will have no difficulty rndis
vering the ‘driving wheel,’ which is worked upon
immediately by the piston, and which, in fact,
draws all the rest alter it. Sometimes two,
or it may be three wheels, may be seen -coup
led together by an outside bar, which makes
them all “driving-wheels,” and increases pro
portionately the holiofthe engine on the rails
and its tractive power. But in ascending a
road so steep as that over Mont Cenis ,more
hold and more power are needed than have
ever been required on a permanent way in
this country, and the necessary addition has
been supplied by adding a third rail and a sec
ond system of “driving-wheels.” Between the
original rails, in the middle of the permanent
way, another rail is laid down, on its side, and
at an elevation of some seven or eight inches
above the rails outside. To bite upon this mid
dle rail horizontal wheels are constructed,
driven by pistons of their own, and between
these horizontal wheels the middle rail is firm
ly clipped. The engine thus obtains a double
hold upon the road by two systems of “driv
ing-wheels” acting at right angles to each oth
er, and the result is such an accession of ad
hesion and power as will enable a locomotive
to draw a train up the slopes of Mont Cenis.
That, in plain words, is the description of the
project which. the scientific reader will find
technically delineated in Captain Tyler’s Re
port
In so far as the experiment has been yet
conducted it is certainly a success, and a
greater success than was anticipated. The
drawbacks pud difficulties have proved fewer
and slighter than the estimate assumed. Last
winter, as justly argued, was a winter to try
anything, and if this overground railway was
not much impeded by the snows of 1866 we
may look with much confidence to years in pros
pect. The railway actually fared better than the
ordinary road, was more easily cleared of snow,
aodwas fitter tor immediate use. The horses
on the common road were not frightened by the
locomotives. No accident occured on this ex
perftnent portion of the-line, and the success of
the triple rail was apparently established. As
to safety, that, on Mount Cenis, is rather a
comparative term, but Captain Tyi.eb is of
opinion that the railway would be safer than
the diligence. He remarks indeed, very natur
ally, that the idea is somewhat appalling upon
a first glance. The railway cars gallantly took |
the outside of the road and left the inside to
the horse traffic, so that the train will run on
the very edge of tremendous precipices, down
steep gradients, and round exceedingly sharp
curves. Under such conditions Captain
Tyxeb reasonably anticipates that much “ex
tra risk” would be feared, and that an ordinary
railway accident might be thought to portend
a vety extraodinary smash. He declares, how
ever, that the powei of guiding and checking
furnished by the middle rial and the horizon
tal wheels acting upon it is so great that the
balance of considerations is in favor of safety
and, indeed, for that matter, we do not see
that the ordinary dangers of railway travel
ling can be much increased by the chasms of
the Alps. A fall down a precipice is a fright
full thing to contemplate, but if we recollect
what happened the other day at Staplehurst
from a tall of ten or twelve feet into a little
rivulet, we may well conclude that worse
could hardly come to pass if the abyss should
be a thousand yards deep.
There is also another consideration, not
overlooked by the Government Engineer. If
these new “driving wheels” and this additional
rail can insure the safety of a train even on
the precipitous sides of the Alps, may they not
add to the safety of our ordinary trains under
circumstances ostensibly less perilous? Our
railways do not very commonly bridge yawn
iug chasms or scale towering clifls, but the
records of disasters are sufficient to show that
they have risks of their own, and that these,
tthough on a smaller scale, are but too often fa
Why, then, should we not avail ourselves
oi “ an element of safety in locomotive work
ing” entirely neglected at present? Why not
employ the means of keeping our trains more
surely on the lines and exerting a vastly in
creased ureak power, even though we do not
expect that a fractured coupling or a broken
tire will plunge us into a yawning gulf? If
any such reform should arise from these curi
ous experiments, we may find more reason
than at first sight appears for taking an inter
fisrt in the Kairoad of Mount Cenis.
Cat Killed by Robins, a most remark
able instance ot the belligerent qualities of the
robin recently happened in Somerset, Pa. It
appears that a hall-grown _ cat belonging to a
citizen, had a fancy for killing young chickens
and birds. A few days since, when puss was
engaged in her favorite amusement, some six
or eight robins combined to close her career.
They attacked her in a body, pouncing upon
her with great fury, and planting their beaks
into her head with a severity which caused the
cat to indulge in frightful screams. Upon the
inmates of the house coming to her assistance
the robbins retired from the conflict, and the
cat escaped under an adjoining kitchen. Not
coming out, and a rather disagreeable smell
issuing therefrom in a few days afterward, the
floor was taken up, and the cat found dead,
with her eyer picked out, and other evidences
about her head of bavins been severely dealt
with.
An Italian paper, while observing that ma
ny persons, anxious to witness an eruptton of
Versuvius, have from time to time fallen vic
tims to their curiosity, states that a Dutch
traveler, who lately made the ascent with oth
er tourists, was taken iU from the vapor sent
lorth by the crater, and died shortly after.
A Baby Thief and a Baby Witness:—
A curious incident lately occurred in a French
criminal court. A young woman, carrying a
child less than a year old in her arms, was ar
raigned for having stolen three gold ten-franc
pieces from the bouse of a lady where she call
ed on business. The prisoner stated in her
defence that her baby snatched the coins from
a table without her knowledge, and carried
them home in its hand; that she had just dis
covered them there, and was preparing to go
back with the money, when she was arrested.
The defense was thought most imprdpable ow
ing to the child’s age j bufthe president, in or
der to test its possibility, ordered one of the
ushers to lay three gold pieces on the ledge of
the dock, within the baby’s reach. The mo
ment the little thing saw the money it clutch
ed the pieces firmly and tried to put them in
its mouth. This experiment satisfied the tri
bunal that the woman had told the truth, and
she was in consequence acquitted of the
charge.

MUTUAL
LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY,
OF NEW YORK. ‘
1st—It has more than double the CASH ASSETS
of any Life Insurance Company in the United States,
being now
Over $13,000,000.
2nd—The Rates for Insuring are less than most
other Companies, as may be seen by reference to our
published tables, while the Dividends are larger.
3d—And all important to persons who wish to in
sure, our Dividend for the last five years was larger
in amount, and in proportion to premiums paid, than
was ever declared by any other Life Insurance Com
pany in the world, being over
T'O JPer Cent.
4th—Dividends are payable annually, the next be
ing February 1st, 1866, and may be used as cash in
payment of the premium for any current year, which
gives all the advantages of the note system without
having to pay interest on notes.

BUT a lew more now are left of the Shaker Maine
Mowers. Those who want a Machine that will
give perfect satisfaction, call soon and jet the
Shaker Maine Mower,
either a one or two horse Machine, which for Ught
nee* ol draft and perfect execution ol business, can
not be excelled. CHARLES VINLNG.
West Gloucester, Me., June 1866.
Having used—these two years past—with entire
satisfaction, and this season purchased one of tl*e im
proved Shaker Maine Mowers, 1 unhesitating give it
as my decided opinion that it i* the very beet Machine
for the tanners ol Maine, or of the New England
States, of any Machine 1 have over used or seen in
operation, and this comprises nearly all the dlller
ent kinds that have been exhibited in our State.—
What is most Important, Is its lightness ot draft, and
the one horse Mower, In my opinion, was never yet
excelled, nor one made that would answer so perfect
ly in all respect* the end tor which It was designed.
This notice all inquiries and especially those who
have unwarantably made use of my name to injure
the reputation ol the Shaker Maine Mower, and help
sales of other Machine iu which parties have largely
invested. ISAIAH WENTWORTH.

California Wines.
THE unexampled popoularlty achieved by our
brands ot these now celebrated Wines, I due
to their superior merits and undoubted parity.
For the sick chamber the “Angi lh a” win commend
itself. Where u highly tonic and invigorating stimu
lant Is desired our Port Is excellent.
The “Muscatel” is without doubt the finest Wine
of its class in the country, and as a Party or Desoert
Wine, Is delicious.
For a Dinner Wine the “Hock” 1* deservedly popu
lar.
See that our label and name la on each bottle.
