COMPLETION OF A GREAT TUNNEL.
The Tunne!l of Moot Bt. Gothard, the
greatest engincering work of the kind ia
the world, has just been finished. The
vhjeet of it is to conncct the railroad
eystem of Germany, Switzetland and Iraly,
and its construction was ; ceemed necessary
in order to offset the commercial advan.
tages that were acquired by Fraece in the
building of the Meat Ceuis tunnel, and
Austria with ber road across the Semmer
ing, which ara the connectivg raiiread
links for those two countries with the same
portion of Europe. The chief works of
this kind in th-jworld are four'in cumber—-
namely, the Hoosac ard Sutro turnels in
the United States and thejabove mentioned.
The Mont St. Gothard is the lougest of al',
its length being more than eight miles ;
the Sutro is the shortest, being less thaa
four miler. Toe Hoosac tannel is 475
miles in length and the Mont Cenis about
seven miles. All of thess great works
have been constructed in the interest of
trade and commerce, and with the Atlan
iie Cable, the Pacific railroads, the Suez
Caval and the Panama Cauzl, when it
eball have been built, will be among the
great industrial monuments of the century.
If'the tunoel between France and England
is ever. built, it will, of course, surpass
anything of the kind ever attempted. Our
own’ lé)fl‘h'_River work, if pushed to
completion; will hold po insigmficant

last number but one of the Preus
sicke Jahrbucher of which he is the editor
he conciudes a most janteresting paper on
the prospects of Germuny with a troneh
ant attack en the German Jews, aud this
attack he justifies Yand develops in the
current namber of the same periodical.
The position which he takes up is as
follows: Germaoy is a newly formed
couttry, and though in Prussia it has
fouud a strong and comparstively oid
State to serve as nuec'aus or leaven to the

cannot be said to be yet completed. Buth
