The naval and t.litary resources of do country in Europe are less known than those of Russia. Her policy ot allowing few if any foreieners to visit her dockyards, workshops, and forts has bad a good effect namel?, that of unknown strength, which is 8ynoaymous ia the opinion of most men with great streoeth. rew men except Russians know of the great fortress of Mod lin, as one writer has aptly termed it in "Russian Gibraltar," near the Russian frontier, and no stranger has ever entered it. The navy itself is better known than the army, but the dock-yards, foundries, ana workshODS.from whence w drawn its mate rial, are bat little known. The great foun dries at Oboukhaff. near St. Petersburg, which rival those of Herr Krupp, at Essen, furnish the steel rifled guns used in the Russian navy. The foundries which are in private bands, but wbiob nave guaran tee of their time being all filled by govern meat work, occupy government buildings, are now under government supervision and are virtually government works. They are named atter Mr. Oboukhoff, a mining en gineer in the government service, who in vented in 1851 an improved process of cas tint? steel in great masses. At this time the Russian ordnance department was en tirely dependent upon Herr Krupp for their heavy artillery, and were nuturally anxious to establish a home manufacture Contractors and capitalists who were al ready in relations with the imperial govern ment were invited to start the enterprise. and the government, besides advancing large sums of money, gave also a tract of land near the River Neva and the govern ment buildings which stood thereon. Mr Oboukhoff was one of the company; his process was used, and he became super intendent of the works. Work was com menced in 1864. In 19G6 Mr. Oboukhoff retired, and CapL Kolokotzoff. anoffiuet of the imperial navy, was appointed gener al superintendent the work. Col. Musse lius, a naval artillery offioer, was made technical superintendent, and the present successful career of the Oboukhoff foun dries commenced. The first gun from the foundry wait sent for trial in 1864. It was a muzzle-loader, of tight-inch calibre, carrying a shell weighing 200 pounds, and using 30 pounds of charge. At 3,000 yards an armor-plate four and a half inches in thickness was pierced. The gun burst on the 109th shot. This led the manufacturers to make various ex periments in the manufacture and casting of the steel, which led to such favorable results that, in (he same year, they turned out a nineteen inch gun, carying a shot weight 112 pounds, and having a charge weighing 37 pounds, which, after 614 rounds, showed no interior change. In 18G5 the Krupp breech-loading system was introduced at the Oboukhoff foundries. In 1867 the hoop ing'system of Gen. Gadolin, of the Russ ian army, was adopted to strengthen the guns. The foundries in time of peace employ some 1,500 men, but now many more are employed, and the works are at their high' est capacity, and working night and day MANUFACTURE OF THE STEEL. The cast iron used is from the blast fur naces of the Ural district, aud is manufac tured by what is known as the "charcoal method." The steel is made in crucibles, of which there are some 400. Each cruel b!e has a capaci'y of ninety-two pounds. During the process of melting, which lasts some three to four hours, the maganese and other ingredients are added. I he crucibles are placed two and two on the Siemens gas furnace, the fuel used being peat, large deposits of which are found in the vicinity. The crucibles are manufac tured in the works, are made of plumbago and clay, and serve for five castings. Some 120,000 of the crucibles are manufactured yearly, ureal care is taken that all the ingredients in the crucibles to be used for the same casting shall be ot the same quan tity aud quality. The amounts of each in gredient are carefully weighed, and by chemical analysis their quality is deter mined. THE CASTING OF THE OCNS . When all is ready the converted contents of the crucibles are poured into a castiron mold lined with sand, in which the stee gradually cools, forming a homogcucou muss. Two men carry each crucible to the side of the casting pit, where they are ranged in rows around it. and the work is so timed that a continuous stream of tuol , ten metal is poured into the mold. As ' many as 120 crucibles arc u.sed in the cast ing of a twelve-inch gun, and it is an affair of only from fifteen to twenty minutes. The steel used for the casting of the guns contains from J to i per cent, of carbon. Some ten or twelve hours after the fillitig of the mold the core is taken out and water let in to cool the casting, T'ae stream ol water is continued for several days, until the gun is thoroughly cooled. Atter a casting has been made a sample is taken from the muzzle end, the breech, and the centre. These samples are sub jected to physical and chemical tests, Kir caldy's well known machino being used in the former case. FINISHING THE GIN. After the casting is finished the crude mass is hoisted out ot the pit and is taken to the kmithery, where it is put iu the Siemens heating furnaces and then tougheued by being lifted into an immense cylinder containing boiling liuNt-ed oil. The two together are then gradually allowed to cool. This whole operation, from the heating of the gun to the uinmeit of its being taken out of the oil, is performed with great regularity as to time aDd all the other conditions, which have been deter mined by many experiments aa being the most favorable. Thin method, which in not used by Herr Krupp, has been found to give excellent results. In Englaud I'allisscr and Armstrong use it for interior tubes, which ure comparatively light steel masses. The gun is then hammered into its proper shape. The outside is theu turned and the interior channel bored out. These are long aud tedious processes, which require great care. The main tube is no ready to be hooped. It is placed in a vertical position, and the first layer of hoopd, having previously been heated in boiling linseed oil, are passed over the muzzle and on to the tube. Contracting after they cool, they fit accurately. The tube.with one layer on, is then taken to the turning establishment, and the layer is turned smooth. The other layers, up to the required number, are then added tu a similar murmur. Great (kill is required in the manufacture of the hoops, bo that they shall fit accurately and each exert the same pressure. Above all, they must not exercise too great a pressure on con traction. The second layer is calculated o as to exercise a greater pressure than the first, and so on in succession. After the difficult operation of trooping has been performed the breech is Bhaped, the rifling of the bore ia carefully performed, and the shutting mechanism at the broech put in place. The system of closing the Dreech by cyhndro-prismatical wedges is used, while the closing of the interior aperture left by the wedge is effected by "u Muwu m uroaaweU'a circular ting. Not long ago Capt. Kolokotzoff invented new process of relioing the guns after they had served for 800 shots. Formerly, after this limit of safety had been passed, , the gun material was recast into various shapes, such as axles, shafts, wheels, etc. Capt. Kolokotzoff's idea was to bore out the interior anew atter the safety limit bad been passed, and to insert, under hydraulic pressure, in interior tuoe ot one men in thickness, and the gun is again rifled. A hoop previously heated in oil, as before described, is placed on the muzzle, and each shot as it comes out tends to establish a more perfect contact between the old and the new material. According to this process a gun having been fired 800 times is relincd, and serves for 500 shcts, being again relined it can serve for 300 shots. This method has proved very successful, and is certainly very economical. PRODUCTION OF THE WORKS. The foundries at Oboukhaff produce many sizes and classes of guns, from a four- pound howitzer to a forty-one ton gun hav ing a twelve-inch bore, carrying a Bhot weighing 715 pounds, and using a charge of 130 pounds. The average production in guns for the last five years of peace has been some 5,000 tons, at a cost of, in round numbers, say of $1,600 per ton io finished guos. The works furnish guns for for tresses and the army as well as the navy and manufacture also some forty thousand zun-birreis per annum. In time ot peace 1 a . a a large amount ot railway and other ma terial is manufactured. Since their estab lishment these works have furnished some four hundred guns of heavy calibre to the llussian Imperial navy. THE DISPOSITION OF THE OBOUKHOFF GUNS IN THE IMPERIAL NAVY. The large iron-clads, such as the Peter the Great the Popoffkas, Novgorod and Vice Admiral Popoff, use the twelve and eleven inch guns. Some of the larger tur reted frigates also use the eleven-inch guns, The majority, however, of this olass of shrp9 and the monitors use the nine-inch guns. The seagoing frigates and cruisers, such as the flagship Svetlana, now in our waters, use the eight-inch guns. The six inch Oboukhoff guns are used on board the corvetts and clippers of the im perial navy, as well as on tho coast defense gunboats. The new gunboats, bnilt in sections and capable of being transported, ibout which mucti curiosity is felt and rom which so much is expected, are said to easily steam eleven and one half knots. and to give easy handung of their power ful eleven inch thirty-ton guos. The nine pound howitzers are used on the smaller vessels of the navy as a supplementary ordnance. They are also used on yachts and gunboats. The four-pound howit zers are used on the bulwarks ot large ships for defense against moving torpedoes. l he only difference between these Obouk hoff guns seut to the navy ana those made for the fortress lies in the carriage, The powder used to fill these guos is that known as prismatical. THE GOVERNMENT GUN FOUNDRIES AT PERM. These great works, which furnish priori pall the artillery used in Russian fortresses and in the Russian army, are situated on the left bank of the river Kuma, about four versts from the city of Perm, the chief seat of the district and government of the same name. These works produce large steel guns up to as high as eleven-inch bore, and guns and proiectiles up to twenty-inch diameter, field-artillery, musket-barrels, projectiles. etc. I he works were started by the im perial Russian government in 1864, and now nave an annual production ot war material of from 20 to 25 steel guns of various calibres, from 20 to 25 nine-inch mortars, weighing from 280,000 to 350, 000 pounds; from 10,000 to 15,000 musket barrels; guns of cast-iron, weighing from G00.000 to 800.000 pounds, and of pro jectiles of hardened cast-iron some 300,- 000 pounds. 1 he total annual production amounts in value to about $1,400,000. The total number of workmen employed is iome 2,500. THE WORKS. The various steam engines employed have a capacity up to 2,300-horse power. There are 240 furnaces for the manufacture of cast steel, which, are heated with wood aDd 144 which use ctke. There are 10 ovens of the system known as Sischinp, and 1 of that known as Ferav; 5 puddiing furnaces; 8 welding ovens, 7 for gaseous cast; 11 reverberatory furnaces; 2 Ameri can furnaces, and about 100 Smith's hearths. The array of eteam hammer? is formidable. Thre are 1 with a cpa city ot 50 ton?. 1 with 5 tons, 1 with 12 tons, 1 with 5 tons, 1 with 2 tons, 1 vi:!; 830 pounds, 1 with (80 pounds, and fin ally 1 with 400 pounds, lho cast iron used is received from the great blast fur naces in the mining district of Goroblago dat, whose great magnetic iron mountain, liiagodat,ihas the immense annual produc tion of ore of 40,000 tons of 2,000 pounds Some puddled steel is received at the Perm gun works from the mining dis trict of Zlatoust, in the Ural, but the ma jor part is manufactured on the spot J lie two rouuarics anove described are the principal ones in Russia, though there are several smaller ones, both governmen and private notably Alexandrovsku works in government of Olonetz.

Many of the most expensive Hoars in tne market are made Irom coarse and deleterious materials, aud their delicate coloring and fragrant perinme too orten conceal the most repulnive Ira parities. The disclosures recently made public regarding this subject arc positively startling, and deserve serious consideration. Scented eoaps are now known to be extremely objectionable, especial ly if a;.ln'd to the head ; injuring the hair, irrita ling the scalp, and inducing severe headaches. The character of the Ingredients may be inferred Irom the tatement of a gentlemen who makes the scent ing of Soaps his. business; be recently declared that perrons engaged In this employment were short lived; from seven to teu years being the longest jcrloa during which the occupation could be fol lowed. The difficulty of procuriuc a perfect! v ou re arti cle of toilet soup is at last obviated, however, thanks to the enterprise aud chemical skill of Mr. B. T. Babbitt, of New York, the world-renowned Soap Manufacturer, whose immense establishment is by iar the greatest of the bind In the United States. The renown of Mr. Babbitt's various pro ductions has for lnauy yeais been widely dissem inated, but this latest eaccesB is the aonrouriate crown to the numerous victories already achieved. After yi'urs of patient labor and scientific experi ment. Mr. Babbitt has succeeded iu perfecti'ttf the coiuposiii'tn of the firest toilet soap ever intro duced.
