him rather forcibly is the general prosperity

rs. founded upon the law of physics "that water
of Mr. seeks its own level." Thus the contractor
ujoyatle at Mr. Billaud will dig until he strikes a vein
njoyalle of water, which has its head in some moan
eremony talus, the mountains of Virginia, or further
more at- yet.
rs, ever- Now suppose the mountains be 30o or 400
feet highcr than our surface, when we shall
strike the vein of water from the mountain,
in trees, the pressure of the s',urce way up, will cause
welding lthe mouth of the rcservoir to rise naturally
in a jet more or less strong, according to tihe
nider the strenght of the vein: The only difficulty
tremony, will be to strike one of these veins from
ving eye. the mountains. But geologists pretend that
p played such veins are interspersed all about in the
I groiom, ground, though sometimes we have to bore
tces. quite deep before striking. We have been
ies w.re told that the cntractor at Mr,. Billaud's does
.I figure, not promise toi give a well that will force
ros-g-ain the water up; he does inot believe it neces
arl. andi sary. The needed requisite is a reservoir of
h:iir the water that cannot be exhausted by steam
orange power, and this he will reach at a depth
of, from 3oo to 4oo feet. Being an expert
Tone, in he can very accurately tell, by the different
shing.mn, layers of ground, at what depth he will find
in nile the reservoir.
:hi.r, of The process by which the well is dug is
anlm Co- called the "hydraulic process:" water does
oroes. all the work. There must be plenty of wa
s present ter to furnish steam for the boiler, in order
,arencro, to dig up the well. In fact the work had
Wallace, to be stopped at 275 feet because all the
Smuslin; working water had been exhausted. The
Coteau, water is taken from the reservoir and
forced by steam, through pipes, up a towel
entlemen about 5o feet high, and thence forced
Coteau, down another pipe to the bottom of the
present. hole, which is being bored. This water
Bird" a force, and its weight, naturally disintegrate
id happy the ground and causes it to melt into soft
me, and mud and by moving the pipe in a semi
pleasant oircle, the ground and water are forced up
this hap- outside the pipe by the same power which
R. D. forces the water inside. Thus, at the same
time, as the water inside the pipe is boring
the well, the water outside the pipe car
ries off the dirt and forces it up to the sur
face. The pipe of Mr. Billaud's well is a
ns er- three-inch one.
