EVENING STAR.
ARTIFICIAL SIOffK MAHUFACTURE.
Meetings ?re being held in New York
with regard to the newly discovered
mode of manufacturing a substitute lor
building purposes. Prof. Mapes explains
the quality and composition of the arti
cle as follows:
"We have here a mixture of the ordi
nary plaster of Paris, sand and blood: in
the mixture of which, it is natural that
a hard and compact composition would
b.^ formed, although the articlea them
selves do not vary from the common ar
ticles of commerce: but In their admix
ture they undergo several chemical
changes, which entirely overthrow their
single tendencies, and form the substance
such as I bold before me.
Blood contains a large amount of pot
ash, which seizes hold of the sand and
renders it soluble, and it is to this silicite
of potash formed that the stone becomes
of its apparent quality. It h?s a strange
power when it meets with the albumen,
which is one of the constituents of .the
blood: but if the albumen of b'ood meets
with the silicite of potash, a chemical
process takes place, ?"id it is then not
soluble from the action of water. But
when it is diffused through the mass, as
here, the chemical change is slow. The
albumen is divided into infinitesimal pro
portions, and if it be caught in the me
chanical {osition, anc there becomes
coagulated, it forms a kind of binding
matter between these parts, and if tbese
parts be not soluble (in which state we
already have shown them to be) you
have all the requisitions of stone- for you
will find a hardness and strength, as in
the proportion of the escape of all gase?
by time, aud a more perfect fragment
grows by age.
Tu the blood, also, you have a quantity
of Iron, which, diffused throughout the
mass, forms an additional strengthening
component, as it is the better mixed into
the substance.
lie went on to explain that time would
' add to the quality of the article, although
too early exposure was not advantageous
to it?he would recommend that it bi
laid aside at least for a few days, and be
coated with an insoluble condiment of
some kind, which would protect the in
| terior during the process of hardening.
He looked for a new era in the art of de
sign as growing from the int-oduction of
1 this artificial stone, which, on examina
tion, he found could be manufactured at
small expense, in a short tin.e and ot
51 eat durability.
ARKCDOTE OF SHELLEY.
Shelley took great pleasure in making
paper boats, and floating them on the
water. So long as his paper lasted he
remained riveted to the spot, fascinated
by this peculiar amusement. All waste
paper was rapidly consumed, then the
covers of letters, next letters of little
value; the most precious contributions'
of the most esteemed correspondents, a'
though eyed wistfully many times, and
often returned to his pocket, were sure
to be sent in pursuit of the former squad
rons. Of the portable volumes wh;ch
were the companions of his rambles?
and he seldom went out without a lx>ok?
;he fly-leaves were commonly wanting;
he had applied them as our ancestor
Noah applied gopher wood. But learn
ing was so sacred in his eyes that he
never trespassed fuithcr upon the integ
rity of the copy?the work itstlf was al
ways respected. It has been said that
he once found himself on the north bank
of the Serpentine river without the ma
terials for indulging those inclinations
which the sight of water invariably in
spired, for he had exhausted his supplies
on the round pond in Kensington liar
dens. Not a single scrap of paper could
be found, save only a bank note for fifty
pounds. He hesitated long, but yielded
at last, lie twisted it into a boat, with
the extreme fineness of his skill, aud
committed it with the utmost dexterity
to fortune, and watching its progreas, if
possible, with a still more intense anxiety
than usual. Fortune often favors those
who fully and frankly trust her; the
northeast wind gently wafted the costly
skiff to the south bank, where, during
the latter part of the voyage the ven
turous owner waited its arrival with pa
tient solicitude.

A friend mentions an amusing circum
stance corrobcrating this, of which he
was himself an eye-witnes* :
I was standing, he said, in the railroad
depot at Cincinnati, just as the train was
preparing to start. There was a great
crowd, as usual, in the building, and all
at once a man, who had put his hand in
his undercoat pocket behind to take out
his pocketbook to pay his fare, exclaimed,
his face glowing with excitement:
?? I've been robbed! ThefP are thieves
ibout here! Some villain has taken my
pocketbook with over a thousand dollars
in it!"
44 Where did you carry ycur pocket
book, sir ?"
"In my undercoat pocket, sir, be
hind !"
"Then, sir, you can scarcely blame
the individual who has taken it," replied
the other, in a very pompous, self-satis
tied, patronising rnanrxr, and in 4,a voicc
of warning," intended for the cars of all
the bystanders. 44 Yes, sir, you oiler, if
I may say so, a temptation, a premium.
>ir, upon theft by carrying money in
I such a placc. Now, Fir, I always carry
my money Acrr," he continued, putting
his hand into an inside breast pocket of
his coat,44 and there it is always" ?
44Safe," he would have said : but he
suddenly drew out fcis hand, as if he
had been bitten by an adder, exclaim
ing:
4- Why, my pocketbook is gone, too!
Thieves ! thieves ! thieves ! L;t no one
go out of the depot!"
The adfrice was acted upon, by doing
which I )th were found upon the tioor,
where they bad been droppexi by the
adroit thief, who then mingled in the
large and promiscuous crowd.
The fault of both had been a lack of
personal watchfulness in such a place.
Lach had 44 practiced the same," as the
sage Dogberry says, they were t3th 44 in
a case. "?Rochester DcmocrcU.
A Very Extraordinary Disease has
lately made its appearance in a few fam
t ilies in this city?some of them eminent
in wealth and position? which has con
founded our physicians, becau-e of its
novelty. Atlirstthey classed it under
the head of e:rysipelas, but as it would
not bear that classification, some of them
have given it the name of 44the plague."
It appears at first in some discolored spot,
say on the face, and extending, without
suppuration, it soon destroys life, as if
by a general mortification. If suppur
ation takes place, it passes off; but if not,
death is sure to follow. There is no con
tagion about it, and it is not epidemic
in any form.
One or two physicians have icsorteel
to the knife, and cut out the plague spot
on its first appearance, and so havesaved
life. Fever and delirium attend the pro
gress of the disease, if 4'the spot" is left
to spread. Such is our information; but
as have seen no case with our own eyes
?and if we had, should not be able to
describe it scientifically?what we say
must be taken with this understanding.
It is not the plague, for i*. is not con
tagious, or epidemic. But what is it?
The plaguo may be imparled, nay it has
been imported, into the south of France,
Irom Turkey; but it may be some new
disease, which, like the cholera, is to de
stroy the human race. We should be
obliged to some medical man for some
scientific or more specific account of
the disease.?N. Y. Express, June 19.
Sad Scenes in China.?A letter from
Canton, under date of March 12th, says
that the Rebels had been entirely rout
ed in the neighborhood of Canton, and
that the main fight took place near Wham
poa. Many of the Rebel boats were cap
tured, also a large number of prisoners.
The executions, for several days, aver
aged one hundred and fifty per day. 0:i
the 11th a party of foreigners'witnessed
the decapitation of one hundred and for
ty-seven. also the cutting to pieces of
three others, who were leading men
among the Rebels. Towns which had
been under the rule of the Insurgents
were fast going over to the Imperialists,
and trade was beginning to revive. The
writer adds: 4The French have not again
attempted to attack the city of Shang
hai. Thev are waiting for reinforce
ments. The French have lost many val
uable men and officers in their foolish at
tacks on Shanghai.
Reduction of Fare on tub Central
Railroad?The Directors of the Central
llailroal, at their reesent meeting at Buf
falo, adopted two important measures.
They reduced the fare to $6 00 to Alba
ny and $7 50 to New York?a reduction
of 81 50 to Albauy, and $2 00 or $2 50
to New York. They also decided on %
second class train, connecting at Buflalo
with the boats arriving there in the morn
ing. On this train the fare to New York
is to be $5 00; to Albany, S4 00. These
arrangements are to go into effect in a
few days, and cannot but prove accepia
