An eccentric old fellow u-ed to say that lie had taken great pains to find tig lv women, but had not succeeded, fie had gone so far as to put two advertise ments in the paper one for an accom plished and amiable person, for house keeper, and one for a person, tor the same stall. in, Who should bo uiMr, when the former was answered by multitudes, but tho latter by ne'er a one, leaving him to infer that there were no ugly women. All remember the cigar steamer pro ject, by the Winans, of Baltimore. Ames painted a picture ot one that was built. It I- (iked like an immense cisr, and was intended to go under, rather than through tho water. The Monitors, equal ly submerged, are proofs of tha pr. ti.'S- bility of the ciu;ar steamers for sea- boats, and a new and larcone is build ing in London for the Messrs. Wiuans. She is to have screw propellers fore and aft instead of a wheel admidships, as was the original desuu. It having been asked through the col limns of the Independent if there were any medical college in the t'nile i States where a colortd man could receive his decree, it was answered by OMDait mouth tiiat color made no (iilurence with tin tu in taking their medical t-tu- dents.

Tho Iron-Clad Roanske The plating of tho T.nll of this ship' fa . now completed. Tho platet are from three and a half to fmr and half inchesj ; - thh'k, sn'id and bent to lhe oh ape of tha ;, sides. The armor is nearly the same as that of the Warrior which some of one journalists have achieved victories over by writing it down a failure on account of tho working of the seam of these rig id plates, and the perc ilation of the sea water which it was said would soon rust off the bolts. There is this improvement, however, in the mailing of the lloanoke : the platet are bent while cold to the shape ot the sides, by a hydraulic) press, re- ' quiring immense labor ia fitting them, , , and by tins means sro carried out to tha extreme ends of the vessel,' in a dimin ished thickness of but one inch, whereas it is stated that tho Warrior's ends ara not protected hy "heavy-plate".- Thw plates are from nine to elevon and a half feet 1 ngj:y forty inches in width. Uno of tho latter dimensions weighs four . thousand two hundred and forty pounds. .. . The sides are plated four feet below the water line. The Roanoke has three turrets, to ba armed each with two 15-inch guns, to b ' fired without projecting from the turret. The weight of the trmnr has depressed, . the. vessel below her former depth. Tha side stands but four feet above the water at this time, without armament, coals or stores for a voyage. The New York , papers announce that she is to be kept , for the defense of that harbor. Much in- t-rest has been felt in this experiment of .1.. r : I -1 -1 . c . . : . a ,1.. me ii-asiMiiny ui convening nur wuuueu ships into mail clads, as well at in oar progress in forging heavy plates, fitting them to the irregular sides, and fastening them in such a way as to avoid the ob jections wo have discovered in English armor; also in our undertaking to carry : tho heavy plates to the extreme ends of ' tho vessel. Iho accounts ot the INevr York press indicate that the perfection ; has been obtained at tho cost of the sea going capacity. And alUiouh they pro- (ess to bo craulleil that Um Koanoke ia to be kept for tho defense of lhe harbor. yet it does not seem desirable- that ia this particular time we should taite our largest and swiftest steam frigates and c -invert them into harbor baterics incap ably of general sea service. Mechanical genius mbht devise some more economi cal methods. The lloanoke was one of the five steam frigaics built in 1355, of the same class as the Merrimac. She was an unfortu nate ship from the start, having broken her back jn launching '' After a short cruise she was repaired at a cost ol $300, U00. On her return from another short cruise, $10,000 was expended on her. Before her conversion, it was estimated that it would cost $100,000 to put her ia repair, the has hoax raz d and plated at an expense nearly if not quite eqnal to her first cost, which was $500,000. It ' remains to be proven whether, at the cost ,' of a first-class steam frigate that might have been available for present service, and of an expenditure vbich approachea so largely toward that of a new mailed frigate of tho largeet class, we have a seagoing vessel. The draft of there fri gates ws about 22 feet. It is stated that that of tho Koauoke is i" creased. This will make her unavailable in tha harbors Kouth of Norfolk. The draft of tho Merrimac was reduced in her conver sion bv the tebels. Although the dem onstration we have made on this vessel, of our ability to shield a ship in a supe rior manner, may be valuable, yet, con- j considering her previous failures, and tho increased draft aud consequent unwieldi- ' ness, if not unseaworthiness, resulting' from her complete; armor, it might have been more profitable to the service, and, more economical, if she hail been merely razed and mailed in a lighter way, or only over the vital parts, s i as to retain her speed and seagoing qualities, while our cohtly complete armor was put on new ships capable of bearing it.
