Opening ortiJ Siics Canal
'From the Examinor.
The S. F. Commercial Herald thusspeaks of
the probable effects of the opening of the Suez
Canal on European commerce with Asia and
Tcfera to the better "route of tisjpait through the
Isthmus of Darien, a subject wo long since edi
torially reviwed. The cost of the latter could
be repaid in less than twenty years by the in
creased development it would give to the inter
ests of the Pacific coast. M
From a circular issued by Mons. do Lesseps
we obtain some valuable information relative
to the cost of navigating the Suez Canal. Na
vignttj&r is free to th"hessels of all nation,
provided they draw no more than twenty-four
feet oi water, and all sailing vessels over fifty
tons must employ one f the Company's tugs.
Steamers can use their own propellers, but side
wheelers argot to bjaUowed that privilige, on
account o'f the wailrdSinst the canal banks.
lFor theigamo reason, the rate of speed will not
be allowed to exceed ! miles ho tho homV
The duewill becalcukted njion the real tonage
of he rossel, -as showrt bv her papern. Th
transit duty lrom ona sca'to the other will be
Uenfrajics per ton ofguage, and a toll often
franesfjayable at either e ntrance. I he charge
for towirg will be tenrancs. per ton. Twenty
five eentimenSj.gur ton, por'day, will be charged
altessels after th't' lanseofone day, anchoring
nt PoillSaid. Is4arar Sue;:. Pilot char 'es
will be ba.s'e'ujjon1 ithc draught ol the ves -
5, aud will ranire from fivo to twenty francs
1 11 the event ofya vessel being brought to a
standstill irt tht Canal, the pilot is to receive
twenty; ffanc3nei' dav. It will be seen from
jmz r rpi -
ithia pregamme that a .vessel going at the max-J
irniuhi' rate of sDeedi-allowed. will make the1
transit from sea to sea in about eiglftesn hours'.
The cost to a ship 1,000 tons, will bo in the
neighborhood of 2,500 : but what is that com
pared with th co3t of sending the same vessel
around cither of the Capes.
Vrhen we consider the shortening of time, the
saving of expenses ior equipping, provisioning,
and iusurauce, the vatt economy in wage?,
wear and tear, and the fresher condition of the
transported merchandise, we at ouce perceive
that all European commerce with Asia must
select the Sues route so soon a3 it becomes
practicable. The modification of our present
style of shipbuilding will probably enue. Ves
sels of large tonnage will be constructed, with
greater beam and length and much less draught
of water. Allowing that inly twenty vosselfj
of a thousand toas each, should pass through
the Canal daily and we believe the number
will be much more on an average the pro
ceeds will aggregate eighteen and a quarter
snilions of dollars per annum. A canal through
Darien would pay even belter, for the route
would bo much more popular, on account of its
superior eu'cbriiy and the avoidance of those
intense heat-sand frequent calms which prevail
in Red Sea. Able engineers believe that the
vrork can be do''e f.ir less than one hundred mil
lions, while the ditance from ocean to ocean is
less than half that of the Suez Canal, affording
quicker transit; and the nature of the ground is
hard and rocky not susceptible of being inju
red by wash. An annual receipt of from eight
een to twenty million on the outlay of a
hundred millions is, ia our opinion, a pretty
Dog Stout: An Illinois paper tells the
following tough one about a block-aud-tan :
'He was in eager pursuit of a rat, burrowed
iorno distance in the "round, and as he went
filled uo the hole, behind him with the' dirt lit ;
tt : 1 e L.i I
removeu. ixe was uusbc-i iur uiyui uuys wiiea
one day his owner heard a suppressed bark
coming apparently from undr the ground, and
upon digging brought the ndvantnrptu dog to
the surface. He was rather the worse of
nothing to cat, but beyond that was as good as
when he diiappeared.,,
A Terrible I'.xiiJ assess..
We clip the following frm r detaP.adicconnt
of the recent dreadful boiler explosion, in Indiana--cms,
published ia th Oturier-Joumal
of Oct. 6th ;
"One o'clock yestardny aft- moon was tho
hour assigned tor tha trial of portable engines
and saw-mills, and iuto the competition scv-

swy:s. "ho test had been completed, and
the victory, if a victory it is, had been won by
the Sinker machine, even minutes and
hfUfof s-iwing b4 bon doi.c, with evecy port
of the engine and mill strained to tho utmost '
tension, after which ire fires had betn permit

3 o'clock Mr Sinker's foreman thocght H ad
visable to saw up the logs on hand, so as to
clear up for removal on the morrow. The en
gine was started and the tak accomplished, .
with the exception of two ignis.' The pit ba-.
neaih the saw-mill was filled with suw-dnst,'
and a temporary rest ws taken, to allow th,.
colored heier tp take it out. A large circle
of interested lookers-on were gathered about
the arwt occupied by the machinery, while hero.
and ithere over the grounds were scorod- -twelver
fd'nvn thousand people. At a mo
ment of undisturbed quiet, while tho hum of
machinery was hushed and attention direclrd
toward the rir.g, in which the fast trotting was
about to commence, a noise like the explosion
of a park of artillery saluted the ear, and a
concussion offj earth as if an earthqnnko
setntn thrill of fear to the heart.' A volume of
steam, .-. blinding cloud of dust and smoke, the
air fiil.ed with debris of timber, of pieces of
icon, of shreds of clothing, parts of human be
png - s, of groans and Shrieks, men tailing hither
and thither, and ranks opening as if plowed
whrough with aj e nuds!nrnel, toM the fear
ful talc oi a i explosion. The engine a moment
before a thi.:' oi bt-mity, obedient to the touch
of man, was torn and rent by a mighty convul-
sioril; its omeliness gone, iujarts scattered -toTDo"
four winds, hardly a joiut left in integ-
rity, That which in one second had been an
implement of industry, in the next was 'timed
into a sick.;e of daath, reaping and mowing its
victims in a swsrth, confined by no rule and
measured by no regularity,
"It is proper to say tLat the almost universal
opinion of t'j cause of the explosion is that
but little witter was in the boiler, and the flues
greatly heated. Wo saw some of the packing
of the 'haud hold7 singed and scorched with
u:e heat. The evidence bpfore the Coroner's
jury will he looked fov with interest by all our
"Tke lives of a quarter of a hundred paople
should not b? light y overlooked!
"The-Stato board may find it woll to abolish
these ao&urd bests' which are no tests at all in.'
their future exhibitions."
