Scientific Miscellany. -Mr. Hannay's diamonds are pro duced by the freeing of carbon from a hydrocarbon-by means of the affinity of the hydrogen for certain metals at a high temperature in presence of a stable nitrogen compound, under the conditions of a red heat and great pressure. The action of the nitrogen compound causes the carbon to crystalize. The pressure required is enormous, and forms the great difficulty of manufacturing carbon crystals by this process. Tubes, con structed on the gun-barrel principle, of only half an inch bore and an external diameter of four inches, are torn open in nine cases out of ten. -The pitcher plant of Borneo has been found to be a natural insect trap, in curving ridges effectually preventing the escape of any creeping insects which may outer. In order to safely reach the prisoners thus entrapped a species of black ant ingeniously perforates the stalk of the plant and tunnels upward to the pitcher, providing in this manner a highway by means of which ready access is had to a sumptuous faro of dead and decaying insects. -The hats of natives of British Colum bia are adorned with figures resembling tatoo marks. Dr. Dally has discovered that these marks all have a definite ameaning, being, in fact, records of events which have taken place in the lives of the wearers. Each individual thus dis plays his history upon his head. -An estimate has lately been made by Herr Salzer placing the number of optic nerve-fibres at about 438,000, and the nunmber of retinal cones at 3,360,000 in each human eye. -M. Raoul Pictet siuggests the use of a great parabolic mirror thirty-five feet in diameter as a means of concentrating the sun's rays and securing a degree of heat far greater than any ever produced artificially. lie suspects certain suL stances now considere.d as elementary to INe comupounds, and he believes they may be divided ijuto their elements by thin application of the intcuse heat in the muirror's focus, -The idea was loug prevalent that the living bodies of human beings and animals might, under certain circum stances, take ire spontaneously and he more or less completely eoasurmed. Al leged causes of this kiud were even placed on record. The itter impossi hility of any such result was demonstrated lby Liebig, who showed that no amount of fat, alcohol or phsp(horns which a living body could possibly conltaji would render it combustible. --A remarkable discovery was latcly made in the region of the Pyrenees. Jni a cave of the paleolithlic or '·old l.slu " period there were foundd teeth of the wave-bear adorned with drawiugs, soue of which represent human beings covered i with long hair. These rude ictmures smunst date mlany thousand years befit' thw dawrn of bjstoyic timie. -It has been claimed by several writers that more than one of the so-called "an nual rings" of trees may be formed in a single season, but the question has never been conclusively settled. The observa tions of Mr. L. Kny in England last year seem to show that two rings may be formed in the small branches of trees during a season, but that the interrup tion of growth in summer causing the division of these rings" is too slight to extend to the trunks. Consequently, it may be considered that the number of concentric rings of wood in the trunks of trees represents very nearly their actual age in years. -A peculiar substance has been found by Prof. A. Scacehi in the lava which issued from Vesuvius during the year 1631. He supposes it to be a new metal, and gives it the name vesbisnr. -An analysis has been made of the soil of a cemetery in which no intermnent has been made for thirty years, and the products of animal decomposition are found to be still present. -A small quantity of the essential oil of aloes was recently exhibited in Edin burgh. It is believed to be the only specimen in the world. The oil exists only in very minute quantity in aloes, but two fluid drachms having been ob tained from five hundred pounds of aloes. -Some two years since, according to a foreign medical report, a girl of seven teen received a severe fright, which within a few days thereafter resulted in a total loss of her hair. None has grown since, and she remains completely bald. -A process has been patented in Ger many whereby a fur-like material is pro duced from feathers in combination with other textile substances. The product can be used for a variety of purposes, such as rugs, carpets, and some articles of clothing. Feathers otherwise value less can be utilized by this means. -In Prussia one person in every four hundred and fifty is insane. A Berlin scientist attributes this large proportion to intemperance among the lower class, and to educational cramming in early years among others. -Fragments of papyri are still being found in Egypt, some of them bearing epistles in Greek characters.

One of the peculiarities of the storm was that it completely demolishe several comparatively new houses lo cated below the level, while houses in the storm's path, upon high ground, escaped with sligbt injuries.

American against Foreign En terprise. The Count de Lesseps came here as the representative of the foreign capital ists, with a great flourish of trumpets, and impressed simple people with the idea that he was going to carry out his plan of a Panama Canal without delay. But the President first checked his ardor by reaffirming the Monroe doctrine of American control over works of that na ture, and Capt. James B. Eads followed this, showing the Congressional Corn mittee that De Lesseps' scheme was im practicable from engineering difliculties, and the enormous expense it would in volve. He then read to the committee a paper in advocacy to his plan of a ship railway. He demonstrated that a sub stantial and durable ship railway can be built for half the cost of a canal with locks, and for one-fourth that of a canal at tide level; that such a ship railway can be built in one-third or one-fourth of the time needed for the construction of a canal; that, when built, ships of the .uaximum tonnage can be moved with sufety at four or five times greater speed than in a canal ; a greater number of vessels per day can be transported than by the canal; that the capacity of a ship railway can be easily increased to meet the demands of commerce ; that the cost of maintenance of the roadway and rolling stock would be much less than that of the canal, and that a railway can be constructed and operated in localities where it is not practicable to construct a canal. He explained his plans by means of drawings which showed a pit of 3000 feet long, in which the railway should be made into the harbor to the depth of thirty feet; then showing the cradle in to which the ship is to be fitted, and ex plaining how the ship is to be kept in place in the cradle by means of blocks six or ten feet apart; then showing the railway, consisting of twelve rails of the ordinary width. He claimed that de railment was impossible on account of the number of rails and the weight of the ships; that there would be no useil .ation or strain upon the ships, even in heavy gales. His plan has received the sanction of 9. J. Reed, Chief Constructor of the British Navy ; Johni Roach, Henry Steers and other eminent American en gineers. M. de Lesseps said he did not like the railway plan because it had not ,een tried; it was not his plan. But Capt. Eads seems to have the .confidence of the business men everywhere, and it is probable that our government will patronize American enterprise in this in atanc·$.
