mate used short plank instead of a stage plank, as
suggested by Mr. M., and used as a preventive to
Its rolling too fast, a rope called parbuckle, on one
end of the reel neglecting to place a rope on the
other end. Having but one rope attached, it
turned tie cable around, and it was precipitated
' into tbe river where the water is thirty feet deep.
Endeavors were made to ascertain its whereabouts,
- but without buccms. The loss is attributed to the
carelessness of the mate and his crew. It is the
intention of Mr. Montgomery to commence a prose
cution against the boat if the cable is not recover
t d witbiq ten days. The cable weighs 6,000 pounds
.and is one mile long."

EigJuh of January Speech of JJ. W. Davis
Iowa Contested Senator Case- Fred. Staun
ton Uuitwmoney Jailers Dallas Treaty
Democratic Inn and Outi.
Wi6mxGT0x, Jin. 8, 1857.
CongreM availing itself of the anniversary of the
battle of New Orleans, has adjourned over. Christ
I mas, new yeat'sand the anniversary, have afforded
the members and Senators ample opportunity to
gratify all their passions for pleasure, and it is to
be hoped that both bouses will now go to work in
earnest and transact tbe important public business
before tbcra.
The debate oa the President's message ia still
kept up with much xsaL On Monday, Hons. A. II'
Stephens and Henry Winter Davis made speeches
the letter's is universally acknowledged to be the
most brilliant effort made in Congress for many
years. His scathing expose of the inconsistencies
and incongruities of the sag nicht party should be
read by every man in the land. On conclusion, he
was congratulated by the prominent members of
all parties even by the Hon. Preston S. Brooks,
who complimented him highly on the originality of
his speech.
Tbe Senate ia engiged in the discussion of the
Iowa Senator case tbe judiciary committee hav
ing reported against Mr. Harlan. This case is in
teresting in one particular view, that is, in show
ing tbe intensity of party feeling. Formerly, the
right of a number to a seat was discussed as a
question of law and of right ; now it is diocussed as
a question of psrty ascendancy. As yet, the de
bate has been partizin, that is, the political friends
for and the political opponents against Harlan.
Such a spectacle is full of danger. When men
cease to view such a question as one of constitu
tional law, it is impossible to anticipate to what
extremity partizan feeling will drive man or a
party. Politicians are becoming demagogues.
Hon. Frederick Stanton, of your State, is push
ing verv earnestly his claims for n seat in tbe Cab
inet. What will Gov. Andrew and Ex-Gov. Aaron
and other smaller lights think of Stanton's preten
sions? I feel some curiosity to know what place
George W. is in search of. He would like to handle
the money sacks.
Another class of "jobbers" has been brought to
my knowledge, they sre denominated "hush money
jobbers," men who represent themselves to be tbe
"big lick" jobbers, as men of greet influence, as
controlling the votes of particular Congressmen,
and demand for their services large fees. If their
proffered services are rejected, they threaten expo
surf, committees of investigation, newspaper par
agraphs, Ac. - Prominent among this class are S.,
of the New York Timet, and sundry other writers
of sundry other papers, not excepting tha Wash
ington press. Tbe silence of these sheets is very
dearly purchased, very frequently.
The Dallas treaty is much talked of in political
circles. Tha democracy touch it very lightly.
They are a little alarmed and are afraid, as yet, to
march up to the rubric or back down. Pierce and
Marcy are evidently striving to embarrass the In
coming administration. Marcy would like so to
complicate the Central American question as to
forco Mr. Buchanan to retain him in the Cabinet
Tha Walker men are all decidedly and positively
opposed to the ratification of the treaty. They
denounce it broadly and without stint.
Tbe democratic ins and outa here are wrangling
terribly over "tbe loaves and fishes " Tbe latter
swear by all tbe Gods that rotation will be a cardi
nal principle of the in.coaiing admiuistration the
former coosole themselves with the self complacent
declaration that old Buck is above small matters.
Tbe empty bonor of riding in front of the inaugu
rating procession, with a piece of wornoutsilk tied
around tbe body has excited the ambition of some
half-doxen pot house politicians, and the separate
factions have several times already come to blows
hard blows and black eyes.
The miserable click of spoilsmen, pimps and
party hacks, which make up for tha most part the
democracy of this city, imagine that all tbe offices
are to be distributed to them. They are indignant
at the idea tbnt any clt rksbip or minor office in
this city is to be given to any resident of the States.
What will the rank and file of tbe party, who do
the work and voting, say to this?
trast. The New York Time9, in the course
of a carefully prepared article, makes a con
tract between the condition of Great Britain
and the United States. It is highly flattering
to the latter. Tbe treasory returns for 1856
show that tbe outstanding public debt of the
federal government amounted to $30,727,000;
while the publio debt of the various States
amounted to $190,718,000 forming together
only $221,000,000.
Tie publio debt of Great Britain before tlie
late war was 797,000,000, to which the 21,
000,000 uew loans were added during the war
together 31 8,000,000 sterling or about for
ty hundred and ninety millions dollars. The
indirect taxation paid by the people- of the
United States for the support of the federal
government in the shape of impost duties
amounts to sixty-four millions dollars. The
direct and indirect taxation paid by the people
of Great Britain for the support of tbe crown,
in tho way of custom and exciao duties,
stamp, income tax, and property tar, amounts
to sixty-four million sterliug, cr abont five
fold the burden of the people of the United
Tho experses of the British Government are
thns, in our currency, for a single year, $320,
000,000, or about one hundred millions more

the Federal and State Governments. Tbe

railway, which embrace about 23,242 miles,
stands in capital and funded debt seven hun
dred and thirty-six millions dollars, though
costiDjr. by the aid cf State and city loans,
about $S2l739,400, or $35,700 per mile; while
tbe system of Great Britain, embracing only
3,334 miles, stands in capital and funded debt,

upon the English system reach nearly this sum

Tbe Southern Pacific Railroad.
Tbe advantages and pressing necessity for a raiU
road communication between the Atlantic and Pa
cific oceans, built entirely within tbe limits of the
States and Territories of the United States', have
long occupied tbe public niiud. Various routes
across the vast western plains and the rugged gor
ges of tbe Rocky Mountains have been examined,
and numerous proposition bave been submitted to
the people and to Congress in reference to t'a
out a to be adopted for this greet line of railway.
One difficulty hitherto presented has been the con
test between tbe advocates of a northern and a
southern route, but engineers who have reeonnoit
ered the proposed northern route have been una
ble to agree upon its practicability. Some of the
most intelligent and experienced of those , who
have urveyed the nortbern'route report that it is
barely passable fur mules and travelers on foot,, and
positively assert that no railroad can be built in
that direction. Enouzh has been ascertained to
prove that, even were a railway constructed
through that inhospitable region, where Col. Fre
mont and hia party, following Col. Benton's favo
rite idea of tracing the buffalo-tracks, were nearly
destroyed in snow-drifts, it would be rendered al
most entirely useless by the severity of the weather
and the accumulation of snow. Public opinion is
fast settling down in favor of a southern route, and
ia the course orcTei,U, whose shadows are already
seen, probably by the time this gigantic entcrpriie
can be completed, a Pacific railroid near the 23d
parallel of latitude may be found to be actually a
central route for our vast and growing country.
Tbe manifestations of public opinion in favor of
a railroad connection between the two great oceans
which form our Eastern and Western bouiniari.js
are daily increasing, and unscrupulous speculators
have sought to obtain sufficient influence to press
upon Congress the adoption of a gigantic omnibus
bill providing 'or the simultaneous construction of
three great tine?; and iuvolving the appropriation
of millions of acre of public land and the expen
diture of many millions of public treasure. This
gigantic scheme for tusking fabulous fortunes out of
the people cannot certainly be successful. It ia too
bideouHly corrupt and too glaringly a swindle to re
ceive the approbation of tbe representatives of the
In the mean time the people have themselves ta
ken tbe matter in hand and the Pacific Railroad has
actually been bepun, and its speedy construction
for over half of the distance from the Mississippi
river to tbe Pacific Oceau has already been amply
provided for by the munificence of the State of
Texas. Tbe Atlantic cities will soon be connected
by various lines of railroad with tbe Mississippi
rivr, and, ere tbe completion of the Southern
Pacific Railroad, it will be directly connected by rail
with St. Louis, Cuiro, Memphis, Vicksburjr, New
Orleans, and Gulre.-ton. Thus tbe main difficulty
hitherto presented in regard to the selection of a
route for the main trunk will be effectually obviuU
This road will give us a railroad to EI Paso, and
pass through some of tbe richest couutry in the
Union. As far as El Paso, its construction is amp
ly provided for by the State loans and grants of
lands made to it by Texas. . The lauds alone will,
at a very low price, realize to tbe Company double
the amount of the cost of the whole road. It will
be gratifying to the stockholders in this Company
to know tliat, upon tbe faith, of sufficient guaranr
tees given by the Board of Directors, ample means
have been procured to finish the first audeven the
second section of twenty-five miles each, so that
the State loans and lanJs 'may be now considered
altogether secure, and the road will be built with"
out requiring the payment of more than five per
cent, upon the stock.
This road is a legitimate enterprize from which
the stockholders will realize immense profits. It
passes entirely across the richest portion of the
State of Tens, and the count ts lying immediate
ly upon its route will, soon after its completion,
furnish trade enough to make it a very profitable '
road, even if there was no surplus of assets from the
sale of lands, and if the stockholders were required
to pay the full amount of thoir subscriptions instead
of the five per cent to which only the stock will be
assessed. The Northern part of Texas is the finest
grain-growing country in the world. Wheat of a
superior quality ripens there so early in the year
that it cau be sent to our markets six weeks earlier
than tnst produced in our middle States. Cotton
alfoofthe very finest quality can be abundantly
produced in the counties south of the line of this
road. When the road is built, this cotton can com
pete successfully in tbe Savannah market with
that grown in Georgia. At prefent this produce is
wagoued for two or three hundred miles to find
other means of transportation to a maiket, and its
value is more than half consumed ia the cost of
transportation. Tbe wheat, flour, and cotton of
Texas will of themselves furnish ample and profit
able business for a railroad.
It is not probable that the road will terminate at
El Paso. It will most certainly be eitendfd to the
Pacific To El Paso, a distance of 2,100 miles from
Washington by railroad, it will have been comple
ted entirely by individual enterprise and State aid.
From EI Paso to San Diego on the Pacific is but
750 miles, and, if Government aid is to be extend
ed to any Pacific railroad, it should be devoted to
extruding the Southern Pacific through the new
Territory of ArizotiMjorlthe Gadsden purchase. The
length of the road through this Territory will be
four or five hun 'red miles, and, as it Is public ter
ritory, tbe queb'ion of the propriety of extending
Government aid to it9 construction is presented in
the least objectionable form. The small portion of
the road through California to the Pacific ocean
ran be easily built, if that portion through the
Mcsila valley f.om EI Paso to Colorado City is
provided for. This project is now attracting pub'ij
e tie i) 'ion everywhere. It is practicable, and indeed
already many of the greatest difficulties to be en
countered have been removed by the enterprise of
those who bave undertaken the constructiou of the
Southern Pacifia road. Let us give our energies
to the completion of this undertaking, and after
wards, if necessary, other routes may be easily
constructed without squandering our pub'ic lands
and involving our Government in debt to the a
mnunt of hundreds of million of dollars. Louis

The Case of Senator Harlan.
The Semite have now under enrmideration
the right of Mr. Harlan, of Iowa, to a seat in
the Senate. CoLflicting reports have beon
made on it by Messrs. Butler and Toombs.
, The correspondent of the Charleston Stan
dard, writes :
Tbe case presents some nice points for the
decifion of the Senate. The facts are simply
the-e : The two Houses of the Iowa Legisla
ture has agreed to go into joint seion for the
purpose of electing a U. S. Senator. A joint
session was held, and there being no election,
it wa adjourned over to a certain day. Ou
that day the Senate happened not to be in ses
sion, but many Senators, perhaps a majority of
them, being present with the House of Repre
sentatives, they proceeded with the taction
which resulted in the choice of Mr. Harlan.
When the Senate went again into session, a
protest was entered against the election of Mr.
II., in the absence of the Senate as a body, and
it was ou this protest the Juduciary Commit
tee yesterday made their report; contending,
first that a day having been fixed for the elec
tion by j int ballot, tbe two Houses in joint
ses.iou could cot adjourn to another day, se
condly, that the election could only have been
by tbe j'.int vote of the two Houses, as to se
perate bodies hi j int session, and not by tbe
individual members of the two Houses meet
ing together and balotting. This case not only
created great excitement in Iowa at the time,
but the argument will bo highly interesting in
tho Senate.

The ITIonater Steam Hattery for the De
fence of V. Harbor.
Tbe great iron war steamer, which Is now
in construction at Hoboken for the Govern
ment, being an ol ject of much interest, wo
have been at considerable pains to collect re
liable information in regard to her, principally
through the medium of our Washington cor
respondentp; and us it ditfe.rs very materially
from the statements receutly made ia various
quarters, we give it to our readers.
In 1842 the late Mr. Itobert L. Stevens first
broached to the Government the subject of
harbor defence by means of steam batteries of
iron, which should be thot and shell proof, and
in 1843 Congress, by a special act, directed
that the Navy Department should contract
with him for such a vessel. In 1844 a contract
was accordingly made with him by Mr. Masn,
then Secretary of the Navy, under which Mr.
Stevens commenced collecting materials an l
constructing the dry dock in which the vessel
is now building.
Mr. Stevens bound himself by this contract
to construct a war steamer suitable for nse in
the waters of New York, from Sindy Hook
upward. It was stipulated that she should be
built of iron, that she should be shot and shell
proof against ordnance then in use on ships of
war; that she should have four engines, and
be propelled by a submerged propeller, which
should have great speed.
Her dimensions were to be not less than two
hundred and fifty feet in length and forty feet
beam, acid her cost complete, including an ar
mament of not less than six heavy guns, was
not to exceed five hundred and tighty-seveu
thousand dollars.
For the further fulfilment of this contract,
the Government required and received from
Mr. Stevens ample security, as it was further
stipulated that payments should be made to
him as he proceeded with the construction, up
to $500,000, and that the remaining $87,000
6hould be paid wheu the ship was completed
and received.
Mr.- Stevens, encountered many difficulties
in making his preliminary arrangements, ami
it was not until July, 1854, that the actual
construction was commenced. Meantime he
had decided, after more fully studying the subs
ject to increase the dimerihions of the vessel
very much. Instead of four engines and one
propeller, she has eight engines and two pro
pellers. Her boilers are ten in number, of large
dimensions, and her power will be nearly e
qukl to nine thousand hordes. The vessel is in
a ve.y advanced state, and the machinery,
boiSeis and dependencies, are all complete and
iu place.
0 ing to her greatly increased dimensions
beyond those stipulated for in the contract, the
e st will be much increased, but how much we
are not able to state. The payments by the
Government cannot exceed $500,000 until the
vcs-el is delivered and received, unless Cou
gress should make further appropriations.
Since the construction was commenced, the
original projector, Mr. liobt. L. Ste.-ens, has
died, but it is stated that his brother, E. A.
Stevens, Eq , isde:ermined to complete the
ve-8el that a good force is now at work, uu
derthe same general supervision which hns
been employed from the commencement. Mr.
S. is prosecuting the work from hia own resour
ces, we are told, ia the fullest confide',ce that
the ship will in all respects meet publio expec
tation, and that Congress will Lot suffer him to
sustain any loss.

late Mr. Macal.ister, whose exhibitions here lat

While walking in the outskirts of the city

the same ladylike, cultivated woman, whose

Preserring Burnetisiiig Timber.
The preserving of timber with a solution of
the chloride of zinc Sir William Burnet's
process is now carried on at Lowell, Massa
chusetts, and a pamphlet recently published on
the subject by J. B. Francis, Esq., gives some
very useful information, which will be of iater
est to-many of our readers.
Sir William Burnet secured a patent for his
invention in England in 18-38, but no Ameri
can patent was ever taken out for it. It con
sists, as state! in the patent, "in destroying
the tendency of certain vegetable and animal
substances to decay, by submitting them to the
action of a solution of chloride of zinc, " In
preparing wood by this process, a suitable tank
is provided and filled about two-thirds full
with the solution, composed of one pound of
the chloride of zinc to every five gallons of
cold water." The timber, (by the plan first
proposed by the inventor,) was steeped in this
for about twenty days, when it was taken out
and dried under sheds. This process was first
introduced into Lowell in 1850, by the proprie
tors of the locks and canals on the Merrimac
river, at the joint expense of the manufactur
ing companies. The original intention simply
was, to prepare timber for their own purposes,
but the apparatus erected was found to be ca
pable of preparing more than they required,
and accordingly they have also prepared con
siderable quantities of lumber for other parties.
The price charged is, for spruce lumlier, $5
per KXO feet, board measure; for all other
kinds of lumber, $0 ; shingles, 75 cents per
10OO. Spruce, it seems, does not take up so
much of the solution as other kinds of timber,
and this is the reason why it is cheaper. Alout
one million feet, board measure, have been Bur
netised annually since the apparatus was erect
ed. This apparatus consists of a cast-iron
cylinder an inch thick, in which the timler to
1 prepared is placed ; it is 60 feet long, 7 feet
dianter inside, with one head movable. A
pair of rails of a1out two feet gauge are laid
on its bottom, A heavy truck is loaded with
tiimVr, which is chained down to prevent it
floating, and it is then run upon a railroad into
the cylinder, and its movable head put on per
fectly tight. A wooden cistern containing the
chloride solution lies below the iron cylinder.
An air pump, of twelve inches diameter and
three feet stroke, and a force pump, four inches
diameter and two feet stroke, arc employed,
and worked by a small steam engine, which
also warps the timlxjr in and out of the cylin
der. The air pump exhausts the air from the
cylinder and timber, when the solution flows in
by atmospheric pressure from the cLsteru. The
air pump then gives place to tho action of the
force pump, which forces in the solution until
it attains to a pressure of l;50 pounds on the
square inch, at which point it is maintained for
two hours, when the process is completed.
The surplus of the solution not taken up by
the timber, is then run olT, and the prepared
timler run out, to make room for another
The time required in performing all the ope
rations and operating on 7000 feet board mea
sure of timber, is seven hours; but two
batches can be prepared every da-, by allowing
one Iwtch to drain oil' during night. The
strength of the solution employed at Lowell is
one and a half measures of the dry chloride of
zinc to a hundred measures (gallons it may 1)
of water; the chloride used is obtained from
manufacturers in the condition of a concen
trated solution, containing 45 per cent, of water.
The apparatus described is the same as that
employed in Gloucester, England, under Bru
nei, for preparing railroad timber, which estab
lishment was visited by Mr. Francis in 1851.
A thousand feet of timlier board measure
if it is dry, will take up nearly forty gallons of
the solution; wet timber takes up less.
Since the time this company commenced to
preserve wool in this manner, sufficient time
is scarcely elapsed to test the timber, so treated,
fairly. The timlier on the Charles lUver Bridge,
over an arm of the sea near Boston, was so pre
pared in 1S50, but it has now decayed to a
considerable extent. It was young pine, se
cond growth, and contained a great quantity of
sap. On the other hand, the timlier prepared
for the Ijowell Bleach Works has been perfectly
successful. F. P. Appleton, Esq., the agent
of the Works, in a letter to Mr. Francis, states
that a plank road of Burnetised timK-r, '-'"O
feet long, was laid down in 1850, and alongside
of it, a portion of the same lot of timlier, not
so treated, was also laid down. The latter is
now wholly decayed, while the prepared tim
ber is as sound as the day on which it was ol
tained. The ground walks around the Works,
laid with spruce plank unprepared, did not
last over two years, but Burnetised spruce,
used for the same purjiose, has stood six years,
and is still sound. The shingles, claplioards,
and other tinder used in these Works, have all
been Burnetised, anil the advantages have been
very great. Samuel L. Dana, chemist, at the
Merrimac Calico Print Works, also adds a fa
vorable testimony to the value of Burnetising
timlier for some purposes.
As this process is common property, it ap
pears to us that it ought to claim the attention
of our railroad companies, for the preserving
of the timlier which they require in such im
monse quantities. We lielieve that the New
York Central, the New York & Erie, the Illi
nois Central, ami other great railroads, would
each find it to their advantage to erect such an
apparatus as that descrilied, and thus treat all
their sleejn'rn, and other like timber. The
same process and apparatus will answeV for a
diilerent solution, such as the sulphate of cop
per, which is employed by Dr. Boucherie for
railroad timlier in France, and which has been
asserted to be superior to the chloride of zinc:.
At any rate, it cannot be doubted but that tim
ber so prepared with either of these solutions,
will endure much longer exposed to the wea
ther than unprepared timlier, and thus be the
means of saving largo sums of money annually.
Timlier can lie prepared for bridges, houses,
itc, (without the use of the apparatus descrili
ed,) by simply immersing it in the solution in
a tank for altout twenty days. Owing to the
rapid consumption of timlier in our country
since railroads became so numerous, thuscaus
ing a great rise in its price, it will lie short
sightedness, we think, on the part of those
companies who extend so much for it every
3'ear, to neglect this subject much longer.
