Improvements in Machinery Applica
ble In Agricultural and Sanatory Pur
voscs. Mr. Joseph Whitworth, an engin
j ecr of Manchester, (Eng) has recently
patented a number of -improvements in
.... . i i
machinery applicable to agricultural and
sanatory purposes,which are thus describ
ed:
With regard to the subject of the inven
tion of improvements in machinery appli
cable to agricultural and sanatory purpo
ses, the patentee claims:
pint The arrangement with machin
ery with disc, annular, or sythe cutters,
for the purpose of cutting or mowing corn,
grass, or other crops, as described.
Secondly The arrangement and con-
hlruction of mechanical parts into a ma
chine for cleansing the gutters or channels
in streets, by means of a circular brush,
with the system of levers necessary lor
carrying and actuating the same, and ad
justing its position to suit the work.

The motion is transmitted to the brush

on withdrawing it found it to be almost as
wet as it was before, scarcely any of the
moisture was evaporated. The moment a
dry piece of wood-was placed in contact
with thc heated, metal, combustion took
place, M. Covlet and I then dipped our
hands into vessels of the liquid metal, and
passed our fingers several times backwards
and forwards through a stream of metal
flowing from the furnace, the heat from
the radiation of the fused metal being at
the same time almost endurable. We va
ried these experiments for upwards oftwo
hour; and Madame Covlct, who assisted
at these expenments. permitted her child,
a girl of nine years of age, , to dip her
hand in a crucible of red hot metal with
impunity. We experimented
on the
melted iron, both with our hands quite
dry, and also when moistened with water,
alcohol, and ether. The same results
were obtained as with melted lead, and
each s( us experienced a sensation of cold
when employing sulphuric acid."
Jl Perishable Monument. The citi
zens of the United States are contributing
means to build a National Monument to
Washington, which is to perpetuate his
name and fame, but it, is well for Wash
ington that there is something more dura
ble than monumental stone to record his
greatness; for, according to Professor
Johnson, the stone of w hich the monu
ment is to be built is the poorest building
material of use in the United States. It
supports a crushing force of only about
2,000 lbs. to the square inch; while good
marble will sustain at least 9,000. lbs. to
the same It is not improbable that the
monument, if carried to the projected
uiigiii, wni iau io pieces oi us own
weight. In addition, almost every squarej crowd lhat assembled there at that hour
inch of the marble contains sulphuret oil excce, any thing witnewed in New York
iron, which readily decomposes on expo- for a generation. There could not be un
sure to the atmosphere, thus staining andder from UventV to thirty thousand per-
destroying the parts in contact with it.!
Professor J. states that the Patent Oifice
building is already so much dilapidated !
by the decay.'pf the materials used in its,
construction, that it. is considered by some
of the occupants as unsafe, and buttresses
are now; erecting to keep it from tum
bling to the earth.

T.g (q gu the
characlcr of jenny Lind svas more that of
a Lola Montez than of a gentle, retiring
spirit woman, as we have been led to be
lieve, and as we do still believe, on bet
ter authority than that of the Herald re
porter who we'' should take to be some
foreign penny-a-dincr, just come out, and
of course knowing nothing of the feelings
and characteristics of the American people.
The idea of the driver whipping the
crowd, and then of Jenny Lind so indeli
calely thrusting herself forward and acting
and talking as is represented, is simply
absurd.
The following extracts from the Her
ald are probably in the main correct,
though, there are one or two fiat touches
in thc serenade description for which al
lowances must be macle -
HER TOICE AND HER MOVEMENT?.
She goes on a visit to-morrow (Mon-
day) to G. G. Howland's up the North
river, and after remaining a few days
there, she will proceed to the country
residence of Mr. Barnum. She says her
voice never was better, and if Mr. Bar-
num can get a place she is ready to sing
in ten days, instead of waiting till Ihe.lSth.
the time agreed upon. We understand
Air. Barnum will engage a suitable place,
if he can find it, and will hot wait for the
finishing of the Hall. The Castle Garden
is spoken of, and probably is the place

arrived, hut Jenny Lind.
GRAND SERENADE TO JENNY LIND
At midnight, the New York Musical
und Society, numbering some two nun
, , .
dred musicians, gave a grand serenade to
Mademoiselle Lind. Geo. Loder's raag
.r . . i i i i iii
nificent band was selected, and wus led by
himself. Some twenty companies of the
New York firemen escorted the band and
: societv to the Trvincr House, and the
sons present, and the greatest excitement
and enthusiasm prevailed when the sub
ject of all this honor appeared at the win-
jow
1 There wis a succession of vehement
cheering for several minutes. Her fce
could be seen very distinctly by the pto
ple, from the bright lights immediately in
front of the hall door. When the firemen
succeeded in clearing a space for the band
under the window at which she appeared,
thc band struck upHail Columbia' fol
lowed by "Yankee Doodle;'' and when
she w is told they were the national airs
of America she exclaimed, "How beauti
ful how splendid!" and alternately laugh
ed and wept. She waved her handker
chief earnestly, and requested Mr. Bar
num to call for an encore a request that
was followed by tremendous cheering.
The band then played "Hail Columbia"
and "Yankie Doodle" again, when she
expressed her admiration as rapturously
a? before, and intimated that she would
sing thc former during her slay in New
York. She clapped her hands with the
greatest enthusiasm.
After playing several pieces, the band
concluded with "God save the Queen "
She then took her leave of the serenadcrs
by waving her handkerchief rapidly for
several minutes amidst the most raptur-
! ous applause we ever witnessed. She
Mvas nuite nlainlv dressed and threw a

We learn from the New York Commer

received, in one of the parlors at the hot

understand they were highly gratified by
the ease and affable disposition with,
which she received them. The New.
York Tribune, of Monday afternoon S3ys:
Mdle. Lind and her suite are still at
the Irving House, and no lime has yet
been fixed for her trip up the Hudson,
She has produred the most agreeable in

the more gratifying, inasmuch as it is not

her arrival, the furniture and paintings ia
them being valued at 7,000. In her
drawing room the furniture is all of the
finest carved solid rosewood, with yellow
and gold satin damask. The curtains of
the same material, with fine real thread
lace underneath. The tables of rosewood,
marble and papier mache richly inlaid
with pearl. One of Boardman & Gray 'a
Dolce Campana pianos is also in the a

geously furnished, the beadstead being
covered with a canopy of the finest lace,
and the coverlid of the most splendid pur
ple satin, beautifully embroidered, and
with a lace border Mdle. Lind was sur
prised at the richness and elegance, and
seemed very curious to know whether
every article had actually been manujac
tured in this country'.
The following is the prize song, writ
ten by Bayard Taylor; which was sung
amidst the greatest applause, and for which
he received $200. It ia entitled
"GREETING TO AMERICA.

I greet with a full heart,, the land of thO
West,
Whose banner of stars o'er a world U
unrolled;
Whose empire o'ershadows Atlantic'
wide breast,
And opensb the sunset its gateway of
gold!
The land of the mountain the land of
the lake,
And rivers that roll in magnificent tide.
Where the souls of the mighty frota
slumber awake,
And hallow the soil for whose freedom
they died!
Thou cradle of Empire! though wide bo
the foam
That severs the land of my fathers from
thee,
I hear, from thy bosom, the welcome of
home .
For song hps a home in the hearts o(
the free!
And long as thy waters shall gleam in thft
sun.
And long as thy heroes remember their
scars, -; 4
Be the hands of thy children united aft
