To C. E. Dei mold, President N. J. Zinc Co., iV. Y. Sin: A series of experiments conducted by me, with the utmost care, during the past three years, upon all the various paints and artificial prepara tions for the preservation of timber, have led me to the important discovery that the White Zinc Paint, manufactured by the New Jersey Zinc Com pany, serves as a perfect protection against the ravages of the marine worm, and the formation of barnacles, whilst no other paint or preparation of any kind combines the same protective effect. I am now preparing a full report on this impor tant subject to the Bureaus of Yards and Docks, at Washington, and shall send with it a complete se ries of specimens of wood anc metal plates, which were covered with the different paints and pre parations. and then exposed alike for an entire season, in salt water, opposite this navy yard ; all of which illustrates, in the most striking manner, the invaluable qualities and decided superiority of your While Zinc Paint over all other kinds of paints, especially for marine purposes. You are at liberty to give full publicity to the above stated facts, which are of too much impor tance to be kept from the naval and commercial world. I am, rcspeutfullv, your obedient servant, iAMES JARVIS, Inspector U. S. Navy Yard, Gosport, Va. Office of thk N. Y. and Liverpool U. S. Mail Steamship Co., Jan. 31, 1854.

The great western express to Exeter travels at the rate of 43 miles an hour, including stoppages, or 53 miles, not including stoppages. To at tain this rate, a speed of 60 miles an hour is adopted midway between some of the stations; and in certain experimental trips 70 miles au hour have been reached. A speed of 70 miles an hour is equivalent to 35 yards per secoud? 35 yards between two beats of a common clock. All objects near the eye of a passenger travel ling at this rate will pass by the eye in the 35th part of a second ; and if 35 stakes were erect ed at the side of the road, a yard asunder, they would not bo distinguishable one from another; if painted red, they would appear collectively as a continuous flash of red color. If two trains with this speed passed each other, the relative velocity would be 70 yards per second; and if one of the trains were 70 yards long, it would Hash by in a single aecond. Supposing the locomotive which draws sach a train to have driving-wheels seven feet in diameter, these wheels will revolve live times in a second. The piston moves along the cylinder ten times in a second; but as there are two cylinders, which act alternately, there are really twenty puff's or escapes of steam in a second. The locomotive can be heard to "cough" when moving slowly, the cough being occasioned by the abrupt admission of waste steam up the chimney: but 20 coughs per second cannot be separated by the ear, their individuality becom ing lost. Such a locomotive speed is equal to nearly one-fourth that of a cannon ball; and the momentum of a whole train, moving at such a speed, would be nearly equivalent to the aggregate force of a number of cannon balls, equal to one-fourth the weight of the train. That a " smash" should follow a " eollision" is no subject for marvel, if a train moving at such speed, or anything like such speed, should meet with auy obstacle to its progress. [Dodd's Curiosities of Industry. Tue Eclipse.?On Friday, the 26th of May next, there will occur an annular eclipse of the sun, which will be visible in Massachusetts. It will commence at 33 minutes past 4 o'clock in the morjning, and continue two hours and four minutes, or until about twenty-three minutes before 7 o'clock. So our readers will have to rise betimes to see it. In this eclipse the ap- i parent diameter of the moon compared with that of the sun will be about as 18 to 111; and, consequoatly, some nine-tenths of the sun will be covered. The path of the eclipse will cross the western part of the Atlantic ocean, Massa chusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Upper Canada, Lake Superior, Northwest and Washington Territories, ana thence through the southern edge of British America to tho Pacific ocean. The central line of the eclipse will enter New England near Portsmouth, and its path will extend sixty two miles on either side. Boston will fall within its path. To those on the central line the sun will appear, during the middle of the eclipse, like a huge circle of light, the moon covering every part except a very narrow rim on the outside. In Boston the appearance will be much tho same, only the ring of light will be wider on one side than on tho other. The central path of the eclipse will be from Kittery,opposite Portsmouth, in a northwesterly direction, through the towns of Dover, Bar rington, Pittsfield, Canterbury, Franklin, Hill, Grafton, and Lebanon. Tho eclipse will, how ever, be visible, to a greater or less extent, in alj parts of North America, excepting Guate mala and the southwest part of Mexico. It will also be visible in Iceland, Greenland, northern Russia, parts of Sweden and Nor way, the eastern part of Asia, the West In dies, and in tho northern countries of South America. IIow to Make Hens do their Duty.?Tho happiest days in our virtuous life have been spent in the country. There's where we fast ened virtue on us, drove in the nails, and clench ed them on the inside to make a sure thing oi' it. This virtue is a great thing, and among other good effects it leads us to do all the good we can to assist our fellows to the frnit of our experience. The following may be serviceable to our farmer friends. One day, in our youth, while on the magnifi cent farm of Mrs. Nancy Smalleye, we watched her struggling with a fractious hen biddy, which she had seized by the legs and was resolutely bearing from tho hen-roost. The screams of the fowl were truly awful, and she spread her feathers some, and indulged in sundry fierce pecks at the under-pinriings of Mrs. Smalleye, evidently dissatisfied with the undignified mode of her conveyance. " What are you going to do with her," asked we; "going to have a stew for dinner?" "A slew? No, child," was the answer; " fetch me a tub from tho shed, and I'll show you." The tub was speedily brought. " Turn it upside down," said she. We did as we were bid, wondering what was to be done with the biddy. Immediately Mrs. Smalleye clapped the en- j raged hen under the tub, and with a triumphant, voice exclaimea: " There now, stay thero you pesky critter 1 I'll have it out of you to-day, or you shan't have a mouthful of wittles." M Have what out of her?" inquired we, in a perfcct cloud of innocent unsophiaticacity. " Tho egg, of course," said she. " Why, you can't make a hen lay an egg can you ?" " Poor child!" suid Mr9. Smalleye, with up lifted eyes and a compassionate smile ?pon us, " You don't know how I do it. You see, dear Willie, hens will get lazy like other folks, and shirk their duty and don't lay, as if we could afford to keep them for nothing. Some folks will put up with it, bat 1 won't; I won't be im posed upon by no hen, no indeed. I know their eggs, and I can tell as sure as ever was, who docs lay and who don't. Them that lays, I let have their liberty, and go around and pich and scratch and court the roosters, and tanta lize each other, and do just about what the* please. But them that don't, I allers put tfceiu under the tub. The handles, you see, d?ar, leave just crack enough for them to see the other hens enjoying themselves?and its aggra vating enough I know. Sometimes they're mighty stubborn, and won't give in, bat even tually they come to their milk, as the saying is. and lay an egg, and then I lets them out This hen is the contraricst hen I've seen. 1 don't much expcct to see an egg from her be fore four o'clock. But its got to come ; yes, indeed! . Luckily for the hen, it did "come out' in tno course of an hour, and abe was h ???rated, And want off cackling proudly, evidently cheered by tho pleasing consciousness of having cvn? her duty.?Library Mutcvm.

It Hew, of course, to his head. Amid their roars 1 of laughter, he began to skip, hop, and dance. Jack was drunk. Next day, when they went, witn the intention of repeating tho fun, to take the poor monkey from his box, he was not to be seen. Looking inside, there he lay, crouch ing in a corner. " Come out," said Lis master. Afraid to disobey, he camo walking on three legs, the fore-paw that was laid on his forehead saving, as plain as words could do, that he hod a headache. Having left him some days to get well and resume his gaiety, they at length carried him [ off to the old scene of reveL On entering, he eyed the glasses with manifest terror, skulking behind the. chair; aud, on his master ordering him to drink, he bolted, and he was on the house-top in a twinkling. They called him down. He would not come. His master shook the whip at him. Jack, astride on the ridge pole, grinned defiance. A gun, of which ne was always much afraid, was pointed at this disciple of temperance; he ducked his head, and slipped over to the buck of the house? upon which, seeing his predicament, and less afraid, apparently, of the fire than of the fire water, the monkey leaped at a bound on the chimney-top, and, getting down into a Sue, held on by his forepaws. He would rather be dinged than drinK. He triumphed ; and, although his master kept him for twelve years after that, he never could versiiade the monkey to taste another drop of whisky. [Aer. Dr. Guthrie's Old Year's Warning. Dramatic Authors and their Heroes.? K(tzchue?The Stranger.?It has been a com mon error to suppose that Kozebue was a Ger man poet, and that the Stranger and Mrs.Hol ler were husband and wife, and people of high degree in "Voter Landt." This is all a mis take ; and, as veritable obronielers of the ab stract and brief items of the times, we feel call ed upon to set it right. The true history of the matter is as follows: Kotzebue was a lop-eared fellow, who kept a lager-bier saloon down on Fell's Point, where, from crediting out an unusual quantity of drinks to the chaps who loafed about there on Sunday, he soon became " flat broke," and con sequently fell into a melancholy, and thence very naturally subsided into writing for the stage. Sir. and Mrs. Haller also em ignited to these parts about this time and set up shop, each on his and her individual hook?Mrs. Haller as a cake and candy woman, and the masculine Haller as an opener of oysters. One day Mrs. Haller was observed to make rather free with some of the fire boys about there, whereupon Mr. Haller flew into a rage, and a general mass was kicked up. They agreed to play quits, and Mr. Haller having gone one way, Mrs. Haller went the other way, aud thus, one having gone to the enst- "nd the other to the west, like Abra ham and JLk,t, there waa peace us well as dis tance between them. With these slight incidents in this domestic drama, Kotzebue, under the influence of an ex tra pot of befer, took up the subject, and when fiicts were wanting, be eked out the plot with fancy. With a slanderous predisposition, pe culiar to small-beer poets, he represented Mrs. Haller as having run away with some scurvy individual, taking with her the two chilrden.of her unhappy union with the unfortunate and ruined Haller. Haller himself was represented as retiring to a neck of woods close by, where, with a book under his arm, he whiledaway the hours in a state of hopeless melancholy. The dramatist proceeds to represent that the fellow who ran away with Mrs. Haller, becom ing disgusted with her, and entertaining a wish to "graze in fresh pastures," left her to shift for herself?her ana Hollers two little chil dren. But this is all mere stuff. The truth is as follows: She didn't know exactly what to flo at first, but at last, puttiug a bold face on the matter, she advertised in one of the papers for a situation as chambermaid. Her advertise ment was answered by a very respectable sort of woman, named Mrs. Winterston, who had a husband of the same name, and whom the dra matist has dignified by calling thera the Count and Countess Winterston. It is needless to say that she got the situation and entered upon her new vocation. It is represented in the play that Mrs. Haller had a good deal of money, and was in the habit of giving it away like dirt} but this is all gammon. It's a clear caso that she hadn't the first red cent?her husband having run oway with every copper of it. Mrs. Haller continued in her situation, and things went on in this way for about a month, when one day, happening to be walking about in the suburbs, she eucountcred Mr. Haller (the Stranger) siting on a log, and sighing, as she expressed it "fit to bust." This was too much for the too sensitive heart of Mrs. Hal ler, and approaching the Stranger, with a frantic air, she exclaimed: "Jimmy, is it you I" "Is it jist," s.iid the Stranger, and they went into each others' arms with a perfect rush. The upshot was, that the twain agreed to say noth ing more about what had happened, and they are both now living in extreme domestic felicity at Fell's Point as aforesaid. Aa for Kotzebue, he was so ashamed of having written such a scurvy play as the one above illuminated, that he retired into obscu rity, and hasn't been heard of since. [Baltimore Times. California Gambling.?The MarysvilU Herald says that some time since a gambler absconded from that place, leaving behind him a roulette wheel, which, on being taken .mart, was found to be so constructed that, by touch ing a spring, the bottom of every box painted red would pe made to rise, presenting a smooth surface, and leaving the ball no alternative but to drop into tho black. Shonld the heaviest betting be upon the black, tho screw might be [ pressed a little harder, whereupon the bottoms of all the black boxes would come up, and tho I ball must go into the red. Moving with the ' | smoothness of clock-work, the machinery could I never fail. With it a child might plav against " 1 the world and win every stake. Doubtless many a yonng man who has gone out from our eastern States to the land of promise, buoyant ' with health, and hope, and energy, and has there earned by' the sweat of bis brow an amount sufficient to render him independent for life, has, in a moment of excitement or lor gctfulness, been induced to stake his hard ' earned gains at the toble of a gambler? per ' haps on such an instrument as this?and has ' thus been robbed not only of his wealth, but of j his hope, his energy, and his self-respect.
