STEAM BOILER EXPLOSIONS.
The reason why the rivets of steam boil
ers arc more apt to crystalize and lose
their heads, is important, iu order to select
the best mode of } reventing the result.
Crystalizntiou is inevitable in proportion
as polar or serial or mugustio force, (all
of which are the same) preponderates over
gravity,the attraction of udhesiou—capilla
ry attraction—and the attraction of cohesion,
whioh are not all the same, and may an
tagonize it. Consequently whatever aids
in bringing about, or increasing, this pe
culiar sort of attraction, or removing the
obstacles in its way, may be regarded as
promoting crystalization and thu explo
sion of boilers when this result manifestly
depends on thu loss of the heads of rivets
and it is satisfactorily demonstrated that
those were originally made of the most
tough aud perfect iron. Whereas now it
is crystulino and brittle. " The particles
of the most dense steel are uever in con
tact," otherwise it could never be reduced
in bulk by a reduction of temperature,
each atom may be supposed to revolve in
its own cell of space as the world—having
like it a north and south pole—produced
in tho same way, viz—by a current of e
lectricity from east to west—but capable
of increased or diminished velocity and
consequent " vis viva" and also polarity.
Tough iron is composed of thread» of
atoms like a string of beads, viz : atoms
bound together as iron filings are arranged
when a Lode-stone is pluccd beneath the
paper on which they are spread—the north
pole of one uioloeule being attracted to the
south pole of the next particle—but this
illustration also exhibits the other idcu,
ziz : that polar force actually overcomes
the force of gravity, &c. and determines
certain molecular arrangements indicating
the outlines of crystuls such as appear on
ithe window pane, from precisely the same
cause in cold weather. Âud also in the
rivets when their heads fly off, so also the
iron filings are projected from the paper in
beatiful crystalline forms before tho Lode
stone touches the paper, although the uu
der surface of the paper over which the
filings are scattered is exposed to its
influence. If while bound together as
strings or threads of particles as thus de
acribed-v-tbcy could also he cemented and
woven like cloth—they would form tough
iron as much in contrast with homogene
ous or common iron as shoddy is different
from good cloth, although composed of the
Nevertheless this " long staple " cloth
io the ease of the tough iron, retains its
disposition to regain tho original crystal
line arrangement of these thready more
over, as this result of polar or serial force
is enormously increased, (viz in propor
tion to "the square") by proximity anyone
can easily conceive of its ultimate prepon
derance in rivets peculiarly constituted, as
above by this force , present and active in
their fibres, bearing sci'cn times as much
of the strain as the boiler iron and also
compressed by the oxidation of tbeir sur
face, but sometimes afforded a chance for
molecular arrangement by the extreme
changes of temperature. Upon the same
principle the familiar fact, that the nails
become more tougb by use in borse shoes,
can be accounted for, their fibrous
tile character being improved and perfec
ted without any obancc for an increase of
the serial or crystalline force over the
other forces which arc capable of direc
ting its devclopcment and using it in pro
moting tbeir co-operation, Recognizing
tho causes, we may thus have an indica
tion of the remedy for this fruitful and
subtle agent in boiler explosions,

The anthracite coal trade has been over
taken by a very general suspense of busi
ness in nearly all the mining regions. In
tho Schuylkill region coal mining is stop

worked. The suspension is nearly or
quite aa general at the mines in the Lehigh
region, and at the wines further north,
the Scranton, Delaware and Hudson, and
Pennsylvania Coal Company's mines are
the exceptions, at which mining is going
on. The assigned cause is the fuilure to
arrange a satisfactory basis by which to
adjust wages. The coal operators named

minimum prioc, and the miners decline
f oing below $3. The operators of the
ichigh and other coal mines have similar
.differences to adjust. The operators and
having no violent out-breaks as in
former years, gives rise to the intimation
rtfeja the want of agreement now arises
from a mutual understanding between

present stock of coal, and if not to effect
an advance in tho prices of coal to con
sumers, at least to prevent any serious de

this general suspension of mining the pro
