J r s y rv. t ,f.rn ' rrj Vv : JJ-L-J' Vsji, Vutaicij. h . l packing is placed, and at F, a f piral spring. An opening, fl, Fig. 2, is made in the top of the team chest in order to allow the nut to travel the full extent of the movement of the valve, and also to give access to Ihe nut to use a wrench whenever necessary. The packing is kept in place by lugs, H, depending from the cap. A gum gasket, we are in formed, placed between the cap and valve, is all that is necessary on machinery where drifting cannot occur, consequently metallic packing can he dispensed with on steamboats. The nut. in connection with the spring, regulates the cap, which forms a ground joint in con nection with the inside surface of the steam chest head, elevating it and depressing it at will. All tin- upward force falls upon the nut, and not upon the chest head. Between the valve and the cap exists a space the full square of the valve, in which the packing Is placed, consistinc of four pieces of brass, babbit or lead, three-sixteenths of an inch in thickness atid one-half inch iu width, shaped precisely liken carpenter's square. These are laid one on top of the other so as to brep.k joint, and also so that, if expansion should take place and shove one out of position at the point of intersection, the other may take its place. Between each layer of metallic packing a gum gasket is placed. A space of one-eighth of an inch exists between the cap and the upper lay er of packing. This forms a square of packing around the shoulder of the cap which occupies the chamber marked F", in Fig. 1. The effect of this is that, when the steam is forced into the steam chest, the steam enters the vacant space existing between the cap and npper layer of pack ing, and presses the packing inward and downward, inward against the shoulder and downward against the top of the valve, thus securing a perfect joint by pressure, and preventing the steam from re-ting upon the valve. The packing is subject simply to pressure ; there is no movement whjlevercounectedwilh.it.. When the steam is off. and the engine is in motion, the cap sinks and rises according to Hie motion of the piston head and the operation of the spring, the shoul der sinking within the square of packing into the chamber. An there is one-sixtecnlli of an iuth room existing between the lugs and the packing, when the steam is otr the joint between the l.neliler and ihe packing is not tight, and there is 110 injurious abrasion whatever when the. shoul der 'inks and rises, therefore this delicate part is in. estr;i table ; nor ran any acidous matter con tained by the oil affect this point. a it cannot be forced iu'o a joint so complete us tliat which the pre-sure creates. 1 lie pupeiinrity of this improvement when compared with that operating upon the ocean ftea ; 1 T t.ieat Eastern, must b-.- admitted by all pr.ict'cal m-n. This arrangement, as mentioned in an English work pnnlish.-.l by Mr. John Houmic of London, i-onsistsof two rings embedded in the eh.-s-t lew!, I i'p-ii'n which i-s a gum ga-k--:. Th..- rings arc pre -cl c'o-ely upon the top of the valve 1 y a number of set screws pas-dug through the chest h-ad fiom the outside. With this ar 1 ing--it-iit a p'K't'on of the valve is always uud-T -r.-?-u:-. a- the ring cannot cover the square of the valve i: :! s travel to an I fro. There Is tnm-h frc-tioii between both surfaces It this case, and the rings require screwing down very frequently in conscqu-u'-e. Although designed for the same purpo-e tkere is no similarity in il s mechanic 1! construction, and "an only be used on steam l.'at ; it is t -to rigid for any it hi-r engine.

TIlllltlLLK .-TATE OK THINtIS IN C.ESAP.E.V HUNDREDS OK I'KOPLE DYINIi FROM STARVATION. A scries of interesting; icttcrsi on tint hor rors of the. famine, have itipcareil in the Le vant lkrulil. They are from the Hev. VV. A. I'arnsworlh, attached to the American mission :iC';vsare:t. I fe takes a very gloo my view of the future. I make s-veral ex tracts : Them is really a ;gieat ileal of sullering from the lack of necessary food in O.esnrea an. I the large towns near lhat city. Tint name is true of Kverek of Xi.lgo, but when we compare these places with the other re gions above named we feel tliat, as yet, they have hardly been touched by the fa mine. In all the villages very many, pro bably much more than one-half the popu lation, are destitute of bread, and fur many weeks have lived almost entirely on .such wild herbs as they could gather in the fields and alono n1(! r0ad .-ides. From the Ak Iagh and the Hao il; regions very many have ll d to sivas and regions to the Fast and ih. if beg their niiseiabli: living from door lo door, while large numbers from tin' Kt.-.-:ii ami the Kir Mii bir regions have in the same way thrown thenim-lvcs upon ('a'san-a and the surrounding towns and the peoj lc fioi.i tin: vicinity of Xidge have gone in crowds, to the regions of Tarsus and Arduna to secure a more, honorable living by gleaning in the wry rich grain fields of ('ilieia. Thus this whole dis trict is in a great measure depopulated. While thi-M- people thus liccoine a great burden in the regions to which they have Sled their own houses and vineyards and lields to go to rti'.n. Sad indeed is the de struction of houses. Huilt of mud, with earth roofs they have a little timber lhat may be used for fuel. In many cases Ihe owners, driven to the las! extremity, lore down their houses before leaving them, and used the timbers for fuel or sold them to procure bread. -Many Others left their homes uninjured ; but no sooner is a house deserted I ban the neighbors dig into the roofs for the timber. Multitudes ol these people, were they now to return to their villages, would find their houses uninhab itable. A TERRIBLE ST A TE Ot TIMNtis. Soongoorloo is a town of about 1,0HI houses, and the resilience of a inlmoram. The scenes here the past winter have al n.ost, if not altogether, equalled the worst of the Persian famine. The Coventor told mc that the statistics which they had gathered, showed some .r,fMK) deaths from starvation in that kaza. Were those in cluded who have come iu from other dis tricts, Salman, Keskitt, &c., and have died there, it would greatly swell, perhaps Al'IUL 11, 171. Till! Invention lir-rewit.Ii illus trated is an improvement on the ordinary D valve, which is de si:oi".l to avoid trte pres.-tire exist-i-:r upon it. and to ova icoine the difficulties arising from th- ex 1 an-ion of the mi !al when heated by steam if the whole of the steam e!n-t b- oi-eiipied. The iinpr'tvement wh-ai applied 'olhe ordinary valve, tills up the whole ot'the st'-ain chest vertically, and. while highly elastic, is claimed to be as indestruetable as the D valve under any speed or pressure. When the steam i3 shut o!T, the valve cannot cock in the yoke, as it takes no air in through the smoke stack, but through the oieniug in the chest head by the sinking of the cap. The oi! is re ceived at the same place. Fig. I is a transverse vertical section of the valve, A, as located in the chest, V. F'g- - " Per spective view slioivins a portion of the steam chest above.

As I was assured by many of the inhabitants bodies have been allowed to remain as many as four days in the streets, and the dogs have partially de voured them. While this seems too bad to be true I cau yet hardly doubt it, fir while I sat conversing with the (Jovernor I heard orders given for the burial of two bodies that had lieen lying at the edge of the town two days already awaiting interment. The people of the town, as well as stran gers, have licen driven to the greatest straits. Their selling aud buying have both been at a ruinous rate. In the winter copper dishes were sold at six piastres, the oak and bread bought at eight, by weight only three fourths as much as copper. Leaving Soongoorloo, the next places visited was Kaya Dibi, in the Salman dis tricts, about twenty miles south of .Soon goorloo. In that village of fifty to sixty houses, I was assured that more that 100 persons have already died of starvation. One man with whom I eon versed assured me lhat ot his live sons four were already dead aud the fifth could live but a very short time. Hoth the Judge and the io'-iL'i- are authority for the following facts : In that village a camel died in the stable and was allowed to remain there forty days. When, at the end of that time, the stable was opi ned and the body dragged out, the people rushed to secure portions to eat. The iu il !, had it buried and the people dug it up, and he was obliged to set a gi:ird to keep them from it. Such as ! cut of if died. NO I.IVIXO TO BURY THE DEAD. I Many of the villages of this district are entirely depopulated ; others are nearly so. I The Judge told me that about nine miles ; nearly west of Kaya Dibi, in the village of I Heraklt!, formerly containing some -10(1 souls, but 1 were left, and that in that : village a body had already been awaiting interment ten days, and that people must be. brought from other villagas to perform this last rite of humanity. This same in dividual told me that in the village of Xe fes Keoy, live hours from Yozgat, which occupies the site of the ancient city of Ta via, in one room he found three little chil dren the eldest perhaps ten years of age. There, with no oue to watch over them or to hear their last moans, the poor little things had died and there were none to bu ry them. All that I saw and heard in all my ride from Soongoorloo to Ak Serai, a distance of 12"'t miles, served lo impress upon my mind the terrible severity of the famine. I spent a Sunday at Ak Serai, and duiing those twenty-four hours at least four persons died from starvation. Cure for a felon Take it to the penitentiary. Concerning Sulphur. In 1Si53 there was a violent eruption from Mount Etna, in Sicily, which was attended with an earthquake, v hereby i0,000 persons were destroyed. The sulphur which is now sold in the markets of the world is said to be largely derived from veins produced on that memorable occasion. The sulphur is ejected from the volcanoes at the time of their activity, and fills up vacant spaces in the li.va or frothy pumice-stone. When this is quarried or mined, and dug out, it forms the brimstouc of commerce. When this brimstone is melted and cast into sticks, it produces the roll sulphur of the shops ; and when the brimstone is boiled, and its vapor is allowed to escape into an air-tight chamber, the variety called flow ers of sulphur is the result. Sulphur in its natural state is found only in volcanic re gions ; but in combination there is scarcely any substance so universally diffused over the world. It is found not only united with all kinds of metals on the face of the earth, but also in plauts and animals, and is of so much importance to these that they cannot exist without it. The exquisite perfume of wall-dowers is a peculiar com pound of sulphur. If a silver spoon be left in an egg, it soon becomes black ; that ef fect is caused by the sulphur of the egg uniting with the metal. A compound of sulphur is always present in the air we breathe ; and although small in proportion to its other constituents, yet the air is never free from it. Commercially speaking,sulphur rules the destiny of man both in the arts of peace and in the appliance of war. It is the key which opens the door to the most impor tant chemical manufactures. From it we make sulphuric acid, or oil of vitriol, which has well been called 'the king of the acids.' Hy it, it is said, we are enabled to produce so many substances that the bare mention of them would fill the whole of this paper. Hleaching, dyeing, soda-making, metal-refining, electro-plating, and electric-telegraphing are primarily indebted to this acid. Many of the most valued medicines, such as ether, calomel, &c, could not he made without it. Sulphur being the chief ingre dient of gunpowder, all the applications of that explosive, in war aud peace, are de pendant upon it. A people that does not possess lucifer matches stands be3'ond the pale of civilization, yet matches cannot be made without sulphur ; not because match es are dipped into melted brimstone before they are tipped wiJ the phosphoric com position which iguites them, but because this very material which ignites them can not be made without the indirect use of sulphur. England aloue consumes more than CiO,000 tons of sulphur annually, which is all brought from the volcanic regions of Sicily. A paragraph has lately been goiug the rounds oftlie papers iu which it is stated, on the 'authority of Signor I'arodi (who ought to know all about it,) that the sul phur n Sicily will be exhausted in from fifty to sixty years ; but Mr. W. Shelford, iu a communication to the Journal of the Society of arts for July 10, 1S74, gives good reasons for doubting the accuracy of this estimate. Mr. Shelford has inspected very many sulphur mines iu the island, has vis ited the most of the sulphur districts, and has been engaged for some years in direct ing the working of mines there. Ife says that with very few exceptions, the ore is carried to the surface ou the backs of boys, two or four of whom accompany each mi ner, and it is a well-known fact that the produce of a mine iu Sicily is chietly deter mined by the difficulty of gettiug boys. Moreover, as each boy carries a small load only, aud makes several journeys per day u; and down the difficult headings and shafts, the mines soon reach a depth at which they cease to be profitably worked. This depth is in practice found to be about four hundred feet, below which winding machinery is needed for hauling the ore to the surface, but has hitherto scarcely been tried. All the sulphur in the island, there fore, below four hundred feet, is almost un touched. That this quantity is considera ble may be inferred from the fact that ina uy of the beds of ore are nearly vertical, and improve as they descend. A Japane.se Weddino. The Japanese, not caring to be burdened for half their lives with the consequence of indulgiug, against their will, in the extravagant fes tivities necessary for getting married in the orthodox manner, resort lo a species of cloicment to avoid pecuniary embarrass ment. Au honest couple have a marriage able daughter, and the latter is acquainted with a fiue young fellow, who would be a capital match if only he possessed the uecessary means of making his lady-love, aud her parents, the indispensable wedding parents, of keepiug open house for a week. Oue line evening the father and mother, returning from the bath, Cud the house empty ; the daughter is gone. They make inquiries iu the neighborhood, no one has seen her; but the neighbors liasteti to oiler their services in seeking her with her dis tracted parents. They accept the olli r, and head it .solemn procession, which goes from street to street, to the lover's door. Iu vain does be hide behind his panels, turn a deaf ear : he is at length obliged to yield to the importunities of the besiegining crowd, lie ojens the door, and the young girl, drowned in tears, throws herself at the feet of her parents, who threaten to curse her. Then comes the intervention of charitable friends, deeply moved by this spectacle ; softening of the mother, the proud and iu cxorable attitude of the father.the combined eloquence of the multitude, employed to soften his heart ; the lover's endless pro testations of his resolution to become the best of sons-in-law. At length the father yields, his resistance is overcome ; he raises his kneeling daughter, pardons her lover, and calls him his son-in-law. Then almost as by enchantment cups of saki circulate through the assembly. Everybody sits down upon mats ; the two culprits are placed in the centre of the circle ; large bowls of saki are handed to them ; and, when they are emptied, the marriage is recognized aud declared to be validly con tracted in the presence of a sufficient num ber of witnesses, and is registered the next day by the proper officer without any dif ficulty. Truly this is an ingenious way out of difficulty, and clearly sIiowb that the Japanese have an innate talent of comedy Jlmnhtrt's JiqKi.1. A want that may be "felt."The want of a hat.

How Mules Came into FAsniox. -Few of the farmers of thi3 country are aware what a debt of gratitude they owe Oeorge Washington for the introduction of mules into general use for farm purposes. Previous to 17715 there were very few. and those were of such an inferior order as to prejudice farmers against them ss unfit to coini-te with horses upon the road or farm. Consequently then; were no jacks, and no disposition to increase the sioek ; but Washint)!: became convinced that the introduction of mules generally among Southern plauters would prove to them a great blessing, as they are less liable to dis ease, and long-lived, and work upon shor ter feed, and are much less liable to be in- jured than horses by careless driving. As soon as it became known abroad that the illustrious Washington desired to stock his Mount Vernon estate with mules the King of Spain sent him a jack and two jan ncls front the royal stables, and Lafayette sent another jack and two jancets from the island of Malta. The first was a gray color eighteen hands high, heavily made, and of sluggish nature. He was named the Royal Gift. The other was called the Knight of Malta ; he was about as high lithe, fiery even to ferocity. The two different sets of animals gave him the most favorable opportunity of mak ing improvements by cross-breeding, the result of which was the jack Compound, because he partook of the best points ia both the origiual. The General bred his blooded mares to these jacks, even taking those from his family coach for that pur pose, and produced such superb mules that the country were all agog to breed some of the sort, and they soon became quite com mon. This was the origin of improved mules in the United SLates. There are now some of the third and fourth genera tions of the Knight of Malta and Royal Gift to be found in Virginia, and the great benefit arising from their introduction to the country are to be seen upon every cul tivated acre in the' Southern States. The Gentle Dignity of Woman. There is in particular (says the Saturday Review) that soft dignity which belongs to women who are affectionate by nature and timid by temperament, but who have a re serve of self-respect that defends them against themselves as well as against olhers. These have a quiet dignity, tem pered by much swentness of speech and manner, that is the loveliest kind ef all, aud the most subtle as well as the most beautiful. They are like the lady in Cviiws, and seem to cast the spell of respect on all with whom they ore associated. Xo roan, save of the coarsest fibre, and such as only physical strength cau control, could be rude to them in word or brutal in deed; for there is something about them, very indefi nite, but very strong withal, which seems to give them special protection from inso lence ; and a loving woman of soft raan uers, whose mind is pure, and who respects herself, is armed with a power which none but the vilest can despise. This is the wo man who gets a precise obedience from her servants without exacting it, and whose children do not dream of disputing her wishes ; who, though so gentle and affable, stops short of that kind of familliarity which breeds contempt, and with whom no one takes a liberty. For this one can scarcely give a reason. She would not ramp or rave if she were displeased, she would not scold, she could not strike ; but there is a certain quality in her which we may be able to formularize, yet which would make us ashamed to pass beyond boundaries of the strictest respect, and which restrains others less critical than ourselves as certaiuly as fear.
