: The New York .correspondent- of ; the
Di3patch :? traces a. relation,, between -Mr.
Heinrich's ".untimely death '- and . • the'dis
appointment ; he' is,, alleged; to have felt
over the. failure 'of a' young : . woman, "to
whom he was devotedly attached, to re
turn his love, and in part,': also, to finan
cial; embarrassment.". His relations' here
declare that he , was not engaged to. Co.
married to any girl resident ; in :; this :. city
at any time, - and an attachment for a
Very , prominent girl in New 1 ork is be
lieved .by his. brother-in-law, Mr. Carl
Wippermari. to have been broken off last
summer because Mr. Heinrich was not
in._ apposition to.marry any one of the
prominence ;of the lady ; who : . held his-af
fections. As/to his financial embarrass
ments, ;nothing v is -known here. He ap
pears to, have enjoyed, *to ; a very large de
gree, the -confidence of ; Messrs.v Gattl - and
Sterns, who employed him' for some years
in their store at Thirty-eighth street arid
Ffth avenue/ for last summer he was
placed .in charge . of : the .firm's business
at . Saratoga. ... . „;•.-•>■ ■
LEARNED;TRADE , HERE.
. Mr. Heinrich -was. the- son of Mr. Benno
Heinrich' who died in this city rather less
than "eignt years ago. He. learnt the jewf
elry -trade, in his father s store, on Main
street.; Mr. Benno Heinrich came to :■ Vir
ginia forty, years-agol" and his son,'" Hein^
rich, ; was born here thirty-five" years - ago.'
He lived here until he went' to New; York
. was very > popular ; and ■ was always
very cordially entertained when he vis
ited his mother and his relations. He
has not been here'' since. the Christmas holi
idays of 1301, > his . summer va cation being
taken up twith - his; duties in Saratoga.
The shock; of the announcement; of his.
death ->to members of his: family was in-*
tense, ;• because his mother arid sister re
ceivedletters only 'a; day. or so ago, couch
ed in ':•; the most cordial terms, and.writ
ten in a vein'; of light-hearted pleasantry
that carried conviction of his good health
and spirits. His mother. Mrs., Elise Hein

If her wishes are "carried out the body

may "look upon his face again, as a

any troubles they are hot known to his

of -'the -heart with a ■ Richmond girl: is
scouted -by -those who were his closest
friends, as it. is believed he had not re
covered " from - : his love affair ':■ with the
New ; York girl. There had been no' for

is- probably true/ as "the Germans: look

The J building .of ; these' vessels, which 1
are rapid of construction, as engineers
claim they can be; built in' two months',:
time, would create : an' industry- hitherto'
unknown,- and would certainly be 7 the.

Description of tbe yessel. .;■ -.•'■'•.
The tubular, boat is . described as.ah.
elongated ■ cylinder with ." cone . . shaped
ends inclosing two other concentric cy
linders, an air space ] between . the middle
and outer, cylinders, and a space for car
go between the middle and inside cylin
ders. The longitudinal ' space .: is ' divided
by ; cross ; sections , or 'partitions ; dividing"
the ; boat in, its length every twenty feet/,
causing. a solid bulkhead, creating. a non-;
sinkable .boat, which, if struck in ariy^
compaftmerit will in no way interfere
jvith . i the general running ; of; the boat
or" injure its cargo. The details- of- con
struction :internally are arranged to^ suit:
rhe different classes: of- traffic. For -the
transportation :of oil, proper v generating
valves are connected; with each storage
section preventing combustion or danger
from fire. Stout steel cross beams from;
one cylinder to the other . give the -neces
sary 'strength and rigidity. -.; A flooring
.ilong the lower part : of tne inside, cylin
der, forms .'• the deck, whilst the loading
and".; loading Is. done by centrifugal
'sumps without any extra cost other, than
"' he' vessel's own;power. The total weight
of. the " tubular ship is : only' one ■ third tne!
weight of the present type of. steam
ship .and -has - over 'double the carrying
capacity, and can be built '; for one . quar
.'.er the price of that' of the present type;
- The objection . may; be;faised as to what
will, prevent the 'ship from rolling" and
burning -bottom :up. -To "-.'this Us; answered:
The centre ;6f gravity is always/beneath
Lhe water-line;^ seven tenths of the total
weight j ofj the ; ship : and of . the ;. cargo , are
Mnder/the "floating line. %The '"centre; of
gravity ;is .under .the : supporting^point,
and" there isino reason. why a weight ' of
lO.OO'J : or even of '15,000 tons should : be
raised without any cause.' The : tubular.
:' <hip has then an equilibrium much ; supe- s
dor ' to the One possessed ; by the box ves-'
•el, in .which the centre of gravity is
Above : the floating line.'. -' v
A "second advaiitagfe which the Knapp
vessel - has .is her construction, which 'is
most simple. A huge 'tube ' four or: five
hundred -feet long,- need not ; be built -in
: special shops nor 'by specially skilled
takers.;-/;' ■_ ' . ' ; . : ;/: : :'.- _ . .*.

jAil kinds of characters, from that. of ;a

the. : masquerade: ball ; in .the Leader Hall
last night. ' The" young men and the young
women vied with each : other in z - their : va
rious gj-rations,- arid for a;time the -party
resembled. that of a comic opera ensemble
rather "than the society folk : of Manches-.
ter. It was a . creditable ; gathering. One
person -was attired in ' a costume ' made
of the Stars , and Stripes and imperson-'
ated;that familiar figure known" as "Un
cle. Sam." Dante's inferno was also rep
resented to some extent. . ■ . -' ;
. .The rustle of -velvet and silk; among
the "'women; lent an air to the -occasion,
and -their -gaudy attire added lustre to
the' scene. The" tympanum of each car
rang with the sound of the music, and
the; couples danced through the figures'
as gracefully as - a Grecian : water-nymph
glides over its accustomed stream. It
was indeed an occasion that was as thor
oughly^ enjoyable as could have been an
ticipated.: In fact," the occasion was
graced by nearly all of the youth and
beauty of the city society set. ;' '
