Age ufier the Tth of Aagutt. n account of pro
grera prior to that dale baring already been pub
lished in the H'orW.-
Auirott Tth, the crew, after witering the chip,
went on nhore and attended a dance eiren br na
tives in their honor, npeadlng the lime until 10
r. m. dancing with the beltea of Dioco. The an
etior waj weighed after the return of tho crew,
and the ship proceeded on her way to the coal
depot at Soartuck. The next day (Sunday) the
Pandora encountered numerous iceberg, aud at
night made fast to one. ami the eogines were
stopped. On Monday the Pandora arrived at the
coal depot, ami the Captain und Kequimaux Joe
went ashore. They returning, bringing two men
and some dogs. The next day, after steaming
further on through the strait, the ship came to an
chor and coaling was begun, and by 7 o'clock p. u.
forty tons had been hoisted on board. Wednes
day the ship was got under way. and nfier two
dyd of fair sailing she was anchored off Uperna
vek. Here the ship was visited by the (jovern
nr and a number of natives, who informed the
Captain that the Government vessel remained
there three days, and sailed on the I7tk of July.
The Pandora sailed on the same day of her ar
rival, and the next day on her way encountered
heavy ice coining from the northward. On Sun
day the Peril's Thumb was sighted, Bnd on Mon
day the high land of Cape York covered with red
enow. On this day a bear was killed by the Cap
tain and Lieutenant, who, with the second cotter
pursned him. Thick ice nus encountered now
for the first lime iu two days, and on the follow
ing day (Tuesday, August IT.) the ship ran iolo
u 8oe of ice, which stopped her further advance.
The engines were reversed, and the ship backed
out and got clear of ice. The voyage was con
tinued through a field of floating ice, the courso
laying in the direction of the Cary islands, which
were sighted the next day. At six o'clock the
engines were stopped, and the Captain. Lieuten
ant and two members ol the scientific staff went
on shore with letters and dispatches for the Alert
and Discovery, which they lell in a cask at tuo
ban of the mountain, and examined the three I
cuirna. in one of which they found a bottle of rum.
n cake of tobacco, three leaden pellets aod au Kng
l -h penny dated 1863. The articles wero left
there by Captain Walker, of the ship Alexandria,
ba 1867. A tin plate, on which were engrave J
the names of tho Resolute aod Assistance, dated
184S, was also foond. No intelligence of the
Alert or Discovery was found here. The next
day the ship was headed in the direction of Lan-
caster Sooiid. and at 6 a. m. lhe H est Land was

with which the columns and cornices are painted.
The latter are surmounted at interval of about
four feet with miniature ol the crest of the In
dian troop-ships, namely, a golden sun. bearing a
garter containing tha word " Heaven's light our

The sitlet are also relieved by eight pier glasses

circling the whole.
The Prir.ce's retiring unartmenta are fitted op

a magnificent brass bedstead, which will be fixed
to two upright standard, so na to give it a cradle
movement ; but what the effect will be in the case
ol the ship pitching or lurching, or making any
save a rolling motion, we are unnble to say. The
furniture in the sleeping apartments is also of oak,
with browo morocco coverings, the cabinets being
particularly worthy of mention on account ol the
excellence of the carving. Tne writing tables are
particularly handsome, the brown leather tops be
ing richly edged with a broad band ol gold wolked
into a design, combining the rose, shamrock and
thistle while the Prince of Wales' feathers occupy
each corner. The whple of the windows of the

rived at a point opposite Cape Walker, at the en
trance of Laocasler Sound. In the meantime the
weather was fair, some ice wus encountered, and
a number of bears and a seal were killed by the
crew. The course now lay acroas Luncuster
Sound, and for two days tho ehip labored through
6elds of thick ice, but on the 24th she entered
clear water. The course lay along the South
Und. and on the 25lh tbe North Land an.!
Iti-achy1 Inland were sighted, (in this day the
weather was thick and snow fell until noon. At
1 1 o'clock a. u. the anchor wa dropped in llea
chy Hay, opposite the provision depot, and the
Captain and three of bis officers went ashore.
The next day tbe watch went asliore with tools
to repair the provision depot, wnicb was in a very
dilapidated condition. On the beach they found
clothing of many kinds and etylea strewn about.
On arriving at the depot, which consisted of a
square wooden house, tbe men loand the doors
broken down and one side of the building torn
away. This wus the work of bears, according to
the opinion of the men. The provisions, bow
ever, wero found safely imbedded in ice three or
four feet thick. A small quantity ol the provis
ions wus taken as a trophy or tbe voyage. There
was a wall about three feel high around the house,
a few sledges, a few tons of coal, and five boats,
two of which were life boats. At the back of
the house was tbe memorial stone of Sir John
Franklin, placed there by Captain McClintock.
On the morning of the 28th the Pandora left her
anchorage and steered out of Ileachy Hay. On
the -Till she was made fast to a floe of ice, where
she remained until tbe next day, when the was
cast off and arrived at Lone Stone island in tbe
afternoon. Tbe Captain and a crew of eearaen
went on shore, but found nothing in the cairns.
They returned und tho ship was got under way
On tbe 29th the land of tbe west coast of West
Somerset was sighted, and towards evening of the
same day Cape Coleman wag sighted, which was
visited by Hoss twenty-eight years ago, and where
a cairn was built. Tbe Captain went on shore
and found papers lell there by Hoss, which were
in a stale of perfect preservation. The next day
the course was continued towards Hellott.s
Stiaits, but in lb afternoon the ship encountered
an ice-floe, and lay to. The Captain and some of
tbe crew landed on an island near by and built a
cairn. On account of the density of the ice tbe
Pandora, on Friday, September 3d, was turned
back on her way through Peel Sound. On the
6th, tbe main bodyof ice was met wbicb extended
clear across the Sound, and the voyagers began
to (ear that they would ba ice-locked, and hare
to remain there until the next year. But. tbe
ship finally worked her way through tbe ice and
continued on ber way down Lancaster Sound.
Much snow fell during this period, and new ico
formed rapidly. Uo the 7lh tbe ship raerged
from Lancaster Sound and entered Davis Straits.
On the 10th the Cary Islands were sighted. Tbe
first Lieutenant went ashore on the northwest isl
and and f jund official dispatches to the Captain
from tbe British Admiralty. Tbe boat returned
und the Pandora was once more got under way,
asd tbe homeward voyage was began, On tbe
13th she arrived opposite tbe Devil's Thumb,
During the 13tb, 14tb, and 15th rough .weather
was experienced, a high sea ruoning aod much
snow and sleet falling. On the 20th she arrived at
Disco. The Governor, came on board and bad
lunch. The men were invited to a ball, which in
vitation was accepted with alacrity. On the 24th

Tne Saloon of th, Serapla, In wblck lac Prince

On ascending tbe grand staircase we find oar
selves in the royal saloon. Here, perhaps, the
visitor will experience some little disappointment.
There is no glitter or gorgeoasness. Indeed, we
question whether tbe general appearance is not
too sombre. The whole of the upholstery and the
principal part of the furniture were selected by his
Royal Highness himself, aod he was consulted on
every point. Tbe apartments are very spacious,
aod have been so arranged that theycan easily be
divided by meant of silk curtains, fie wbole of
tbe grand saloon has bean devoted to the use of
His Royal Highness. The cabins hitherto ex-
Puunded alum will purify water. One teaspoon-
lul of alum to four gallons of water will cause a
precipitation of the impurities.
To estimate the quautity of shelled corn on the
cobs in any given space, level them and measure
tho length, breadth and depth ; then multiply
these dimensions together and the product by
four. Cut off the last figure, and the result will
be the number of bushels of shelled cum and the
decimal of a bushel.

The bost way to catch hawks or otvls is to set
np a high pole with a steel trap on top. The
birds often alight directly in the trap.
Pictures may be transferred to painted surfaces
in tho following manner : Cover the ground wfth
an even coat of light colored carriage varnish,
which should be allowed to set (nearly us dry as if
for gilding.) II the print to be transferred be col
ered, soak it in salt and water; if uol colored,
use water alone. Remove superfluous water by
pressing between blotting pads, and then pluce
the picture face down upon the varnish, pressing
it smooth- When the varnish is dry dampen the
paper and rub it off with the finger. The pic
lure will be found upon lhe varnish, and another
coat or tbe latter should bo added to bring out
the effect. The process answers equally well for
glass or metal surfaces.
For the protection of iron and steel tools
against rust, v ugel recommends a solution of
white wax in benzino. The latter, heated, will
dissolve half its weight of wax. This will pre
serve the metal, even from tbe action of acid va
pors. Apply with a brush.
Round steel wire rupe will bear more than
double tbe weight required to break iron rope of
The following rule for strength of iron pipes is
based upon tbe fact that a ten incb pipe, one
inch thick, will stand lhe pressure of one hundred
yards bend water. Theiconcidence ol one incb
of metal to every ten inches diameter and one
hundred yards pressure should be remembered.
For every incb in diameter of pipe, increase or
deduct 1-10 of an incb ; and for every yard of
pressure, increase or deduct 1-100 of an inch.
Id calculating the strength of iron columns,
the safe plan is to find the diameter of a solid
column necessary to bear the compression, and
t-'ien distribute the same area of metal in tube
form or a hollow column.
A mixture of peroxide of manganese and water
glass is recommend to be applied to cooking
stoves when they are red hot, as it is said to
make good blacking, not as liable to burn ofl as
common black lead.
According to recent experiments of M. M
Kundt and Lehmana, tbe velocity of sound in
pipes filled with water increases with tbe thick
ness of the sides of the tubas.
To make yellow wax into white wax, tbe for
mer is boiled in water, spread out into thin layers
and exposed to the light and air. This is repeated
until all tbe color is gone,
Cuttings of many kinds of plants, not usually
increased with facility by farmers, may be rooted

Tbe First Ram Battle at (tea.
Now that the prompt and peremptory though
accidental, sinking of the British iron-clad Tan
guard by her consort, the Iron Duke, has called
public attention so sharply to tbe use of the ram
in naval warfare, it ought to be put on record
tbat tbe first modem naval tight in which this
method of settling an international difficulty was
decisively adopted, was fought by tbe victorious
commander on a bint given him from this
country. A writer in the New York WorM
says : I allude, of course, to the severe engage
ment of July 18, on Lassa, on tbe Dalmatian
coast, between tbe Italian fleet of Admiral Per
sano and the Austrian fleet of Admiral Von
Tbe admiral, who was one of tbe simplest as
well as one of bravest of meo, told me tbat on
reading the account of the preparations which
were made at New York in 1862 to fit dot the
Vaoderbilt for tbe purpose of ramming and sink
ing tbe Confederate iron-clad Merrlmae, be made
up his mind tbat this would prove to be
the best way of dealing with armored vessels in
action, and devoted himself to a special study of
the qualities involved. Whan be was ordered
down with small mixed squadron to Lists, early
in July, 1866, to relieve that place, then besieg
ed by the powerful iron-clad fleet of Admiral

When writing, reading, drawlog. sewing, etc..
always take care that th room II comfortablj
cool and th feet warn ; there I nothing tight
about th neck ; therx Is plenty of light without
danlinff the eys ; th tan does not sbln direct
ly on th object we are at work upon ; th light
does not com from In front ; it is bast when It
comet over th left ahoulder ; th bsd is not
very much bent over tbe work ; th page U near
ly perpendicular to the line of tifhl; that It that
the eye it nearly opposite the middle of the page,
Tor in object held slanting il not seen so clearly ;
that lhe page or otbar object It not lots tbaii Ar
isen inchet from th eye. Nsar-tigbtsdnsta it
apt to increase rapidly when a person wears, in
reading, lb glasses intended to enable him totM
distant objects. Io sny cat, when the ey es have
uny defect, avoid Una needle-work, drawing of
fine maps aod all such work, except Tor very
abort taskt, not exceeding hulf an hour each, and
iu the muroinf. Never study or write before
breakfast by candlelight. Do not lie down when
reading. If your eyet aie aching from 6re light,
from looking at tho tnow, from over-work, or
other cause, a pair of colored glasses may be ad
vised, to be il...-1 for a while. Light bine or
grayish blue it the best shade, bat these glasses
are likely to be abused, and, usuully. are not to
be worn except uuder medical advice. Almost
all wbo contiuue lo wear colored glasses, having
perhaps first received advice to wear them Irom
medical men, would be belter without them.
Travelling renders of spectacles ire not to be
trusted ; their wares are apt to be recommendi d
as igoorantly aod indiscriminately as in the titnea
of the " Vicar of Wakefield." If you have io
bold the pages of Harper's Alttytuine nearer
than la inches in order to read it easily, it is prtd
able that you aie quite near-sighted. If you huve
to hold it two or three feet away before you ste
easily, you are probably far-sighted. In either
case, it is very desirable to consult a physician
before getting a pair of glasses, Tor a rhisflt may
permanently injure your eyes, as squinting or roll
ing them. lhe eyes are often troublesome
when the stomach is out of order. Avoid read
ing or sewing by twilight, or when debilitated by
recent illness, especially fever. Every seamstress
ought to have a cutting-out table, to place her
work on such a plane with reference lo tbe line
of vision as to make it possible lo exercise a
close scrutiny without bending the bead or tbe
figure much forward. Usually, except fur aged
persons or cbrouic invalids, the winter tempera
ture in work rooms ought not to exceed 60 or
Go 9 . To sit with impunity in a room at a lower
temperature, some udded clothing .will be neces
sary. Tbe feet of a student or seamstress should
he kept coniportubly warm while tasks are being
done. Slippers are bud. In winter the tempera
ture of the lower part of tbe room is apt to b6
10 or 15 lower than that of the upper. It is
indispensable in all forms of labor requiring the
exercise of vision of minute objects, tbat tbe
worker should rise from bis task now and Iben,
tuke a few deep inspirations with closed mouth,
stretch the frame oot in lhe most erect posture,
throw the arms backward and forward, and if
possible, step to a window or into the open air,
if only for a moment. Two desks or tables in a
room are valuable fur n student ; one to stand at,
the other to sit at. Dr. D. F. Lincoln. Secre

The York Census.
A census mado by the State authorities of
New York has just been completed, und is much
more satisfactory to New Yorkers than that
taken in IriTO by the Federal authorities. The
gain from 1860 to 1870, according to tbe United
States census, was 13 per cent. The gain from
I860 to 1875, according to thh State census, waj
28 per cent. The difference in theso percentages
indicates that one or the other is to an extent
unreliable, thongh tbe Federal census included
the war period, and tbo Stale census, includes
lhe ten years sinso the war. The loss of popu
lation during the war could not, however, account
for the entire difference. Tbe census just com
pleted gives tbe population of the entire State at
4,916,604, against 4.382,750 in 1875. The popu
lation of New York City is 1 .249 868, an in
crease of about a quarter of u million in the last
Ave years. A Philadelphia paper questions the
correctness of this census, as there are motives
for inaccuracy and misrepresentation in a Stuto
census which do not influeuco United States
Marshals aod Assistant Marshals who take the
Spf.cial Notice. Subscribers wishing to
make changes in tho list of periodicals taken,
should give early notice of their intention. It
