It is very probhble that ThaddcBI Steveus will
be BfBTi mated for Congress from Lancaster. If so,
he will have an immense majority. He is Ihe mai

Ilarrisburg Convention it was remarkable how gen
eral was the demand for him to tOTtO. From all
present indications the Stute will elect at least
eighteen Opposition members to the House, leafing
rix of the Democracy to condole with each other
ard do the ditty work of the Slavedrivers. Bu?

A great libel on the Colonization Society has been
most flippantly repeated by the newspapers, in
aatrailng that the authorities of Liberia had con?
nived at the exportation of colored emigrants by the
French, under pretense of free emigration to the
M ost Indies. 'The whole story is a slaveholders'
lie. I have ascertained by inquiry among the
Colonization authorities hereth.it there is not the
slightest foundation for the charge. On the con?
trary, the Liberians have strenuously resisted the^
w hole scheme, even to an extent otl.-nsivo to the
French Government. Bo long ago as Deoonbef
last, the Liberian President, in his aaeaiage to the
Legislature, protested against the traffic. A law
was then passed to stop it. These measures so
offended the French Finperor that he meanly re?
fused to present to the Republic the war vessel he
bud volunteered to send it. Whatever the French
whs* Is have done in Liberia has been done forcibly,
the Republic being too feeble to do more than pro?
test aguiiirt the enormities eoiiuuitti-d.
The city elects a new Sheriff in October. The
office is a fat one, and every incumbent re?
tires from it rich. The next term of
three years will be. a harvest even more
abundant than common. No wonder, then,
tbat there should already be forty candidates iu the
field. The lust for t ffice, by which bemocraey has
so debauched the public mind, will probably pro?
duce forty more before the nomination it made.
> ow look at the OOSasSemeaiOeaof this demoraiizatb n.
Three eighty men will spend and waste not less
than $100.000 during the campaign, nearly as much
as the term of office is worth. The value of the
morals destroyed during the same period is not to
be e.ilculated. Then there are Iff Congressmen
and eighteen Legislators to be chosen, and rariSBB
. "'o r positions in what is known as BfetevHotJM
Row to be filled. They are all good, fat OBBOBB,
making the incumbents tolerably comfortable by the
abundant pickings originated by the DeBBOOI.icy.
The five Congressmen will spend, or have it d ne
tor them, at least $100,000, The Legislators will not
wade ill so deep, but there are nearly four times as
many. Ilarrisburg has rich fields for Icgislit.ve bbs>
tuie. and there will be B5t\000 spent in putting
these candidates through. Take the whole csut or
loss to bo encountered by the coming eleetkfB in
this city alone, and it will reach a quarter million.
Money, not merit, it now the key by which office

A A?IF STEAM ENGISE.

irg wsith tin m goes mentally though tie prr-ce*s of sub?
tract rg seventy five per cent from their at at ?mr tit ?< b?
f"re asaaahaboj if the remainder are iina.'inary or mt.
This is especially true with improvement* of f.e steam
Btgdae Any one who will take the trouble to go over
our lasbaatraal reports <,f Ian year, would fird taat *ver\
(range, damper, lejrula'or, iro>ern<.r, ? ut-off. StO., saves
froni ten to fi'ty per cent of the hat, all of whim sav
I irge added tog?tlier wou d amourt to mueh more than
I tbetotal consumption. Under each clreumstances it
r< quires some OOBIBgO| and i'. is highly meritorious, for
a man to come forward statxg only tbe truth. This
was don-yt-terdy by Mr. F. 11. ISIanchard of New
iT< rk.
At the invitation of Mr. lilaOfhaid. a number of sri
ettifie gentlemen Bad repoitere of tbe pre? went up
ti e Hudson Kiver on board tbe steamboat John Go wan,
which is BTOpeOod by a steam ergine and boiler of
this gentleman's invent'ot. The water fjr the trip
was contained in a tank, ard the quantity onsuaied
ascertained by meaeura'ion. The coal was weighed.
The piessnre was indicate.! by a steam gBBgB. In this
mar.Dfr the inventor mede no sta'etrHnt, but simply
?hewed what he did. The boat is IV) foot long, .'I
feet beam. 250 tuns measurement, diameter of paddle
w hi els 89 feet, lenffth of buckets i foot, draught I]
fett. It is prrpelled by an ordinary beBBI engine, H
(eat stroke, l!o it ches oiaiueter, and by a high-pressure
horizontal ?ngice, 'J feet stroke. Ill inches diameter.
The beam ergine works at from 30 to 35 pounds, and is
condensing. The bigli-pressure engine woiks at from
BO to 108 pounds. The steam escaping* from it at a
pressure of SO to 89 j>our,ds works the condensing en
g ne. The boiler ia tubular; the flame moves to the
end cf tbe boiler, and returning near the fumiie
through email tubes b-low the surface of the water,
hence it passes through two cylinder BOSS p'ac?d
above the water into the steam. After leaving the
boiler the rlame is conducted around the tubes
of tevcral beaters in succession, and is finally
let out, perfectly cool, through a smoke-pipe
6 ircbee in diameter. The fire place ia clieel
air-tight- The air ia forced in by a pump. Tae grate
is higher in tbe center, and goes slanting to the sides,
like tbe roof of a bouse. At the top of tbe fireplace is a
cylindrical openirg, with double door or valve; the up.
tier velve is opened, Vl pounds of coal are put in en I the
valve is closed. The lower valve is thenopened and the
coal falls upon tbe grale. Tbe slanting shape of the
gtate is dflieient to make the coal tnus falling dispose
itself in a bed of even tbii kness. Over ibn smoke-b >x
is tbe chimney; this is used only to light the fire, and
to keep it burr ing while the l>oat is at rest; as soen as
the vetsel is under way the chimney is closed by air?
tight valvss and used no BSOTB. The new tnnrhine
works as follows: The steam from the boiler, at N lbs.
pressure, is made to pass thr.-ugh beater No. 1, where
it is peitictly dried and expanded. Hence it works the
high-pressure cybnder, is expanded by cuttirg off, and
escapee at a pressure cf 80 lbs. through beater No. "J
to the low-pressure ecgiuc and the cmdenser. The
feed-water is hea'ed to tbe boiling point in beater
No. U before enterirg the boiler. Trie air supplied
to the fire is heated in hsater No. I. Ail th*t gussta
ascertained t1 at 808 pounda of BOOl were con?
sumed in gettirg up eteani; that afterward 1,101
pounds of coal totk the boat from New-York to Havsr
etraw, a dutance of 40 milea. During the trip, i-'o
cubic feet of water, equal to 88,311 pounds, waslrans
foimed BBjB i tesm. The steam passed into the cylin?
der at Hi' pounds preBsare and a temperature of 338
Fahrenheit- T!..- running time was three hours and
eix minutes. This ergine consumes from ON to IV)
p. urn's of coal per hour. ' >ue of the same power on
the eOMBOB plan would require m. re than 1,'ssi
poutd.s. Such a result is startling at first, but is easily
txplainfd. Kach pound of coal requires for burniogone
poutdaed one tl ird of oxygen. Air is composel of four
BBlta of titiogenfor one part of oxygen, and a* otly
one half 0 the oxygen of tne air combines with oal
buined in a furnace, it resu ts that for every pound of
coal burned at a grate nearlv 19 lbs. of not gases
eicspe tlirOBgh tl a ch;uney. Ti es? gases have !o bs
at lestt ( f tt.- temp, ratur* of 808 to produce a proper
diaft; acu.ttim-* tbey escape red hot. Mr. Blanchard,
by means of bis heaters, recovers this enormous qusn
tity of beut to raise more steam, BSai bn produces the
draft watt a small fraction of the power thus saved.
'1 ail intent-on is as simple as it ia important, and de
tervsa atrsLtivn from all persons interested iu steam,
a J tspecialiy in steam navigation.

Before the game began, aud up to about the fourth
iriri gs, tbe feeling was all in favor of Brooklyn. .Jus
a' its commencement twenty to fifteen was offered on
Brooklyn, atd was lorg in finding a taker. But from
tbe fouith to the sixth innings the feeling began to
ebargt-even bets were offered but there were no
taktrs. The game was too even to predict any result
from it. It was, indeed, so weil contested that beta
were freely i fTered that there would not be twelve runs
made on either side. But notwithstanding the offers,
but little money changed hands an the result,
