BY JULIAN A. SELRY. That New "Motor.'?The alleged dis? covery of a new motor by a Mr. Keely, of Philadelphia, hns been exciting the curiosity of scientific nnd unscientific men for some time past. There nre those who consider it not so much a new motor fts n chimerft, which is nn assumption formerly arrived at in regard to stcnni, the electric telegraph, nnd ocean navi? gation, before they were established by actual experiment. There are others who insist that it is the greatest discovery of the ago, nnd is going to revolutionize the forces now employed in industrial progress. It is unnecessary to say that just as sanguine expectations have been expressed beforo of the results of inventions which have failed to realize tho predictions of their patrons. Mr. Keely, we are told, how? ever, is about to demonstrate the entiro practicability of his discovery in its ap? plication to a railroad train between Camden and Jersoy City. Any expres? sion of judgment, either for or against, until we have this practical demonstra? tion must be premature. The public can afford to wait till Mr. Keely submits his case to actual experiment. It is difficult to convey an intelligent conception of what the alleged new discovery is. The motive principle is represented by tho New York Daily Bulletin "to bo the ex? pansive power of carbonic acid. This important compound, under a pressure of thirty-six atmospheres, at the tempe? rature of thirty-two becomes liquid; and when tho pressure which retains it in tho liquid state is renewed, tho ra? pidity of tho ovaporation, and the enor? mous expansion of tho vapor, are such as to produco a degree of cold under which acid solidifies, forming a whito concrete substance possessed of very ex? traordinary properties. Prof. Faraday was the first who liquified carbonic acid, but it was first treated as a solid by W. Thilonrier. At common temperature and pressures, water absorbs its own volume of carbonic acid; under a press? ure of two atmospheres, it dissolves twice its volume, and so on." An intel? ligent correspondent of the Savannah Xeies, who claims to have made nume? rous and expensive experiments with it, has no doubt of its immense power as a mechanical agent, in proof of which he adduces the following progressive aug? mentation of its expansive properties by increased temperatures: At 5 degrees Fahrenheit the pressure in pounds per square inch is 372; at 10 degrees Fahren? heit tho pressure in pounds per square ] inch is 403; at 20 degrees Fahrenheit the pressure in pounds per square inch is 400; at 30 degrees Fahrenheit the pressure in pounds per square inch is 500; at 40 degrees Fahrenheit the pressure in pounds per square inch is 007; at 45 de? grees Fahrenheit the pressure in pounds per square inch is 1,080. Heretofore the great scientifio difficult}- has been to know how to utilize this wonderfully ex? pansive power?to put the harness on it, so to speak, and to work it, as Prof. Morse has harnessed electricity, nnd compelled it to carry messages. Now, Mr. Keely claims this difficulty has at length been conquered, and people who profess to have patiently examined his plans, and listened to the description of his gene- I rator, multiplier, receiver, pipes, etc., are confident ho will succeed. Tho ad? vantages claimed for it over steam and the steam engine arc many, not tho leaBt of which are economy, safety and easy control. If applied to navigation the propelling power, it is said, would not cost more than $5 to run a steamer from Savannah to New York; and as tho ne? cessary machinery will not take up one fourth part of the weight and room of a boiler, engine and fuel, of equal power, another advantage' would bo additional carrying capacity and spaco for freight. If Mr. Keely should be able to demon? strate all that ho promises, the mills and manufactories and tho commercial and social progress of the world would re? ceive a new impetns. Even steam and electricity have failed to satisfy tko im? patient temper and the industrial de? mands of men, nnd if there nronny other forces in nature which can \>e availed of, they will be largely pressed into service. But what is to be the lcsscnod valuo of I all our coal Holds, if this now motor has all the virtues claimed for it? The Great Rush FOR IN DRY GOODS To bo kept up by C. F.

Somc timcs the pain is in the shoulder, and is mistaken for rheumatism. The stomach is affected with loss of appetite and sick? ness, bowels in general costive, and sometimes alternating with lax. The head is troubled with pain, and dull, heavy sensation, considerable loss of memory, accompanied with painful sen? sation of having left undone something which ought to have been done. Often complaining of weakness, debility and low spirits.
