namely, in 183.1, be was appointed to construct
the Groat Western liallroad, upon which he ern
phncil all the resources of science, and display
ed a skill as an engineer which waa never before
and baa never since boon equalled. The famouj
Jnix 'Junnrl, on this road, was entirely bla
woik. '1 he longest suspension bridge lu Eng

designed and built by blm. 1 1 assisted Mr. tJTit
i'Hsinln floa'lngand raising tb Conway and
liritannia tubular bridges, one of the most diffi
cult entcrprisee on record. He was alao engaged
In tbe construction of tbe Tuscan end of tbe ttcr
dlnlan Kailway, and during tba lata war with
Jtusela waa emplojetl to construct and or
ganize the aospital of Kenkloi, aituated on th
llardatielles. and intended to afford acoommotla-
ttun to iio less than three thousand sick and
wounded at on time. These are only a portion
of the land wnrk to which be haa devoted him
self. Most of the large docks at all the princi
pal eeaiairta of Or cat lirltlan were either wbullr
(omdraitrd or completed by him. Nor was
liis genius conhned to railroads, brIJges, and
tunnels, lie was also th constructor of the
Uriat Western, tba first colossal fleam-
thlp whlih trarrsed th Atlantic, and
whose ariital in the waters of our bay
will bo remembered by most of our
readers. That famous ship waa then considered
a monster of tbe deep, Iwing !23u foot in length
by 35 fret (i Ii ches In breadth. Suua her time
the Great llritain, tbe Tarsia, and all of tbe
Col Mia line, hae exceeded her in length, espe
cially the Tenia, which la 890 fuet long. The
Great Kasturn is nearly three times her longcb,
and to this laat crow nfng work of ocean naviga
tion, Mr. IIkoxki.'s fame la also Intimately at
tached. It was originally aiippoaoil on this aid
of the Atlantic, that ha washer builder,but such
is not ine case. mr. dtutt iichskll designed
her lines and constructed the iron bull nf the ship,
and considers himself responsible for ber merits
or defects, as a piece of naval architecture, lie la

ri, aathe Company's engineer, that the oil
ginal conception la due of building the mam
moth ship, lb Idea of using two sets cf en-
I'lnes and two propeller, was also bis. It was
liisMta, also, to introduce a collular feature,
like that at I lie top and bottom of tb liritannia
llridge, into her construction. Theae are the
main charactrrlstlca which distinguish the

Th rasing around the funnel which blew up,
formed a kind of vettkal boiler, where th water In
trruiad to be uaed In tbe main bollere waa placed
around th funnel, ao a to secure Its heat and trans
mit hut water to the main bollere. Instead of cold. In
th top of tliU an opening waa left for the i scape of
anyaWam which might arise, and permanently, It
waa never exiected to to e'oeed. But, previously to
the departure of the vessel from Deptford, It became
desirable to teat thla aeparate vertical boiler
by hydremic prooraa, to do which, th per.
mannt opening waa cloeod and a temporary
faucet fitted, and thla wa by eome ahocalng lnad
vrtano neter taken away, aud what I worn, It waa
never turned off. Aa baa been the case before with
thla method of trying to heat wetr for the main
IxAler use, (tear which reason the aame apparatue bad
been abandoned, after trial hy the Collin's steam-ra,)
wheu th veaael had got under way tbe vertical boil
er did not euputy water enough for the main boilers,
and on -lrauulcatlon with It waa at one abut nff.
ThUkunderthaauppoaitlonthat an otienlrrg at the
top left a place for the escape or steam, waa
aufBdantly natural, but when the communica
tion waa Interrupted tha water left In the funnel waa
rapidly oommuuicated into steam, and the whole ap
paratue became a monatruua vertical boiler without a
safety valve or any vent whatever. That all the wa
ter left In the casing was converted Into vapor long
before the espkatlou took place la ault certain, and
It waa evidently not till tbe confined steam had gone
on expending and probably decomptaiing for anmo
hours that the casing at laat gave way with awful af
fect. The engineer who have tnicted ths rent maaaea
of Iron, and tha tremendtHis evidence waxloli yt t re

emclual na aa to tb amount of steam prawu
which occasioned It. Some literally give It aa high
aa 1.000 taninda to the square lnc, but this apptat
almost lucredil4e. Tbe majority generally estimate
It aa having been between 400 pound and A00
round, tn amount of prsaaure which, as tar as can
be calculates), be never yet been gi4 by steam. The

Tbe whole tin of shore from Rocky Neck to

monster bed of more than monster oysters. Th
bed lies a little oter tba centre of tb

to Eaton' Neck light and from a party who
haa dredged oter it, w learn tbat tbe bed Is
certainly from one miV tcvie to about two mwVi
long. 0'ber stories ay Mrre mitrr trt.lt and ten
long! Hut, we bat e takeu much pains to get at
tbe truth of the matter, and I hiuk t he first state

etk before last by a party of live Uarien flalier
men, whose names aie William Wood, Jamm
VYahkiiii, Thomas (Jarlix, William Hovt
and AigxAsnut STEtras. These mon were
nut ttsbini;, and chanced to drop a Amtgt
for aq anchor oter tbe bed, when on taking it
up It waa tilled with enormous bliehcs, which
led to furthrrinvesttgatlnn, and the result itated.

fier iiiiUhih of dclUirt would fall fur below th
reality, Nothing has ver equaled tbe excite
