Goodyear’s India Rubber Bat*
Commissioner Holt, in the course
of an : “argument which is marked by
more eloquence and broadness of
•opinion than are usually found in offi
cial papers', in favor of extending the
abovkpatent, gives, concerning Good
year’s struggles and inventions, some
particulars of great interest. It ap
pears from these that Goodyear has
devoted about eighteen years of'his
life to the development of the infinite
capabilities of India Rubber, mostly
with a view to the discovery of what
is popularly known as the vulcanizing
process—-that is, the process of hard
ening rubber by means of sulphur and
heat, so that it will not be injuriously
affected ia its manufactured form by
the changes of temperature. The
Commissioner of Patents says :
“Frcm the first moment that the concep
tion entered his mind until his complete suc
cess—embracing a period of from sixteen to
eighteen years—he applied himself unceas
ingly and enthusiastically to its perfection,
and to its introduction into use, in every form
that his fruitful genius could devise. So in
tensely were his faculties concentrated upon
it that he seems to have been incapable of
thought or of action upon any other subject.
He carried continually about his person a
piece of India rubber, and into the ears of all
who would listen be poured incessantly the
story of his experiraehts, and the glowing
language of bis prophecies. He was, accord
ing to the witnesses, completely absorbed by
it, both by day and night, pursuing it with
untiring energy, and with almost superhu
man perseverance. Not only were the pow
ers of his mind and body thus ardently devo
ted to the intention and its introduction into
use, but every dollar he possessed or could
command through the resources of nis ere lit,
or'the influences of friendship, was uncalcu
latingly cast into that seething caldron of ex
periment which was allowed to know no re
pose. The very bed on which his wife slept,
and the linen that covered his table, were
seized and sold to pay his board ; and we see
him, with his stricken household, following
in the funeral of his child on foot, because he
had no means with which to hire a carriage.
His family had to endure privations almost?
surpassing belief, being frequently without
an article of food in their bouse, or fuel in
' the coldest weather; and indeed it is said
’that they could not have lived through the
winter of 1839 but for the kind offices of a
few charitable friends.
They are represented as gathering sticks in
the woods, and on the edges of the highways,
with which to cook their meals and digging
the potatoes of their little garden before they
were half grown, while one of his hungry
•children, in a spirit worthy of bis father, is
heard Expressing his thanks that this much
had been spared to them. We after find him
arrested, and incarcerated in the debtor’s
prison ; but even amid its gloom his vision of
the future never grew dim—his faith in his
-ultimate triumph never faltered.”
Throughout all these severe trials
: and embarrassments, which are par*
alleled by the experience of the
world’s great benefactors in all times,
"Goodyear met with no encouragement
from the public and but little from
his best friends, being regarded, even
by them at times, as visionary if n*t
insane. But he kept right on, with a
bravery that could not be appalled,
-making ono advance after another
'until the discovery of the process
which formed the climax of his inven
tions. This came suddenly, even ac
cidentally, as most results come which
'have long bceifjainfully and earnest
ly sought.
“In one of those animated conversations so
"habitual to him, in reference to his experi
ments, a piece of India rubber combined with
sulphur, which be held in his hand as the
text of alibis discourses, was by a violent
gesture thrown Into a burning stove near
which he was standing. When taken out.af
-ter being subjected to a high degree of heat,
■he saw—what, it may be safely affirmed,
would have escaped the notice of all others—
that a complete transformation had taken
place, and that an entirely new product—
since so felicitously termed ‘clastic metal’—
was the consequence. When subjected to
further tests, the thrilling conviction burst
upon him that success had at length crowned
his efforts, and that the mystery ho had so
long wooed now stood unveiled before him.—
His history in this respect is altogether par
allel with that of the greatest inventors and
discoverers who have preceded him. The
lamp had swung for centuries in the cathe
dral of Pisa,but, of the thronging multitudes
who worshipped there, none had heeded the
lessons which it taught. It was reserved for
the profound and observant intellect of young
Galileo to extract from its oscillations the
true laws of the pendulum, which led to the
creation of an infallible measure of time.—
The theory of universal gravitation loses no
rthing of its grandeur or value because sug
gested by the falling of an apple from the
'tree. In all lands, by teeming millions,this
phenomenon bad been observed, but to none
had it imparted instruction—to none bad it
wpoken of that wonderful secret which lurked
beneath Its simple features. At length its
•still small voice’ fell npon the delicate and
appreciative ear of one whom it startled into
Inquiry. light thus afforded, to whom
-all-had been blind, was indeed dim and twink
ling; but, following its guidance as one who
traces back the dawn, the great Newton soon
plunged into the full-orbed splendors of a
discovery confessedly the most brilliant
which has gilded and ennobled the annals of
science. On all the hearthstones of the civ
ilized world, for thousands of years, the ket
tle had boiled and lifted its lid by the ex
ftasaive power of its steam ; yet for none bad
this seemingly trite and ever-recurring inci
pient been significant~to none had it an
nounced that measureless power of which it
wae the humble but [distinct exponent. At
length the movement caught the eye of a
lonely student of nature, then a prisoner in
Abe tower of London, and in the soil of his
prolific mind it proved the rapidly expanding
germ cf that steam engine whose triumphs
have changed the aooiaT, political and com
mercial aspects of the globe. 80 India rub
ber, in combination with sulphur, may by
accident bare been exposed to the high de
gree of heat often before, without attracting
the attention of any. and it is safe to allege
that it might have been thus exposed a thou
sand times afterwards without the world’s
having been the wiser or wealthier for it.—
The thorough self-culture and training of the
applicant and his unwearied researches, pre
pared him at once to seize upon, to compre
hend, and embody, in a practical form, the
truth he sought, the moment it presented it
self, no matter how dimly to him. This was
bis merit—the same in kind with that of the
most illustrious inventors,who have appeared
in the world, and by that of but few of them
surpassed in degree ”
Singularly enough Goodyear had
previously avoided, as most to be
feared, the very agent, heat, which
he needed, his former combinations of
India rubber and sulphur having meN
ted under it. A greater degree of
heat wasjust what he wanted. Ilis
discovery made, he subsequently per
fected it by the addition of white lead.
The application of his new ‘elastic
metal’ to the thousand useful purpo
ses for' which we now see it employed,
was his next and hardly less laborious
task.' Capitalists and manufacturers
shrunk fearfully from him, and it was
only by proving at immense cost and
many sacrifices the value of his in
ventions that they finally won support
and became a great staple in trade.
But for all this, “at the close of all
his toils and. sacrifices, and of the
humiliations he has been called on to
endure, Ibis public-spirited inventor,
whose life has been worn away in ad
vancing the best interests of mankind,
is found to be still poor, oppressed
with debt, and with the winter of age
creeping upon his shattered constitu
tion.” The receipts from Goodyear’s
various manufactures have of course
been enormous, but so have been bis
expenditures, by reason of the great
cost of establishing an entirely new
branch of industry, and pursuing the
experiments arid making the improve
ments in which he has been constant
ly employed. The patent has been
extedned for seven years frem the
15th June, 1858.
Original Extracts.
The Possible Extinction of
Man. —lt may be, as some one lias
suggested, that'there is not only a
term of life to the individual, but to
the species, and that when the proper
time comes, the prolific energy.’being
exhausted, man is transferred to tho
list of extinct forms. Strange
thought, that the beauteous phenom
ena of personal existence—the
thnll of the lover, tho mother’s smile
on cherub infancy, the brightness of
loving firesides, the aspirations of
generous poets and philosophers, the
thought cast up and beyond the earth
ly, that petard which breaks down
every door—the tears of penitence,
the meekness of the suffering hum-*
ble, the ardor of the strong in good
causes, all that the great and benifi
cient of all ages have felt, all that
each of us now sees, and muses on,
in his home, his people, his age,—-
that all these should be thus resolved;
passing away whole “equinoxes” into
the past, as far as we particular men
are concerned, still passing further
back as respects the larger person
alities called nations, and still further
'inconceivable multiplication with
regard to the species—gone, lost,
hushed in the stillness of a mightier
death than has hitherto been thought
of! But yet tho faith may not be
shaken, that that which has been en
dowed with the power of godlike
thought, and allowed to come into
communion with its Eternal Author,
cannot be truly lost. The vital flame
which proceeded from him at first, re
turning to him in our perfected form at
last, bearing with it all good and love
ly things, and making of all the far
extending Past butone intense Present,
glorious and everlasting.
[Vestiges of Creation.
Morning. - i —Whilst I read the po
ets, I think that nothing new can be
said about morning and evening—
But when I see the day break, fam
not reminded of these Homeric, or
Shakespearian, or Miltonic,or Chauce
rian pictures. No; but I fe6l perhaps
the pain of an alien world: a world not
yet subdued by the thought; or, I am
cheered by the moist, warm, glitter
ing, budding, melodious hour, that
takes down the narrow walls of my
soul,and extends its life and pulsation
to the horizon. That is morning, to
cease for a bright hour to be a priso
ner of this sickly body, and to be
come as large as nature.— Emerson.
Revenge is a kind of wild justice,
which the more man’s nature runs to,
the more ought law to weed it out;
for as for the first wrong, it doth but
offend the law, but the revenge of
that wrong putteth the law out of of
fice. Certainly, in taking revenge, a
man is but even with bis enemy, but
in passing it over, he is superior; for
it is a prince’s part to pardon; and
Solomon, I am sure, saith, “It is the
glory of a man to pass by an offence.”
Spiritual Independence. —The
sense of spiritual independence is
like the lovely varnish of the dew,'
whereby the old, hard, peaked earth,
and its old self-same productions, are
made new every morning, and shining
with the last touch of the artist’s hand.
A false humility, a complaisance to
reigning s chools, or to the wisdom of
antiquity, must not defraud me of su>
preme possession of this hour. If
any person have less love of liberty,
& less jealousy to guard his integrity,
shall he therefore dictate to you and
me? .Say to such doctors, We are
thankful to you, as we are to history,
to the pyramids, and to the authors;
but now our day .has come; we have
been born out of the eternal silence;
and ndw we will live, —live for Our
selves, —and not as tho i pall-bearers
of a funeral, but as thd upholders and
creators of 6ur age; and neither
Greece nor Rome, nbr the three Kings
of Cologne, nor the college of the
Sorbonne, nor the Edinburgh Review,
is to command any longer. Now
that we are here, we will put our Own
interpretation on things, and our own
things for interpretation. Please
himself with complaisance who will—
for me," things must take my scale,
not I theirs. Twill'say with the war**

The Beauty of American Scene-*
RY.— Tho noonday darkness of the
American forest, tho deep, echoing,
aboriginal woods, where the living
columns of the oak and fir tower up
from the ruins of tho trees of the last
millenium; where, from year to year,
tho eagle and tho crow see no intru
der; the pines, bearded with savage
moss, yet touched with grace by the
violets at their feet, the«broad cold
lowland, which forms its coat of vapor
with the stillness of subterranean
crystallization; and where the travel*
ler, amid the repulsive plants that
are all native in the swamp, thinks
with pleasing terror of the distant
town; this beauty,—haggard and des
ert beauty, which the sun and the
moon, the snow and the rain, repaint
and vary, has never been' recorded by
art, yet is not indifferent to any pas
senger. All men are poets, at heart.
Iron Buildings.
Amongst the many inventions
which the present age has produced
for the promotion of human comfort,
one of the most remarkable and ben
eficient is the construction of iron
buildings. This latest triumph of me*
chanical genius owes its ultimate
practical success, though not its ori
gin, to James Bogardus of 'New York,
who undeterred by the ridicule add
chilly indifference which greeted his
first experiments and prbpositions as
they did the inventions of Fulton & Ste
phenson, and no wise discouraged
by the repeated failure of similar ex
periments in England,perfected a plan
for a building of four stories high
which combined perfect strength and
solidity with great architectural beau*
ty. Ten years ago he laid in New
York City the foundation of the first
iron house ever erected in the New
World; and it stands to-day as firm
as ever, a monument of his complete
success, and not 'the only one, for his
native city now contains many to hole
blocks of iron buildings. The pecu
liar advantages of this style Of build
ings are its superior strength, dura
bility beauty and economy.
The most elaborate architectural
designs can be used in the construc
tion of them, and the richest, most
delicate ornaments and carving of
the ancient marble structures, be
faithfully and cheaply reproduced
for their adornment. They can be
rapidly constructed at any season of
the year by workmen of ordinary
capacity, without plumb, square or
level. Every part of the building
being brought to the ground exactly
fitted for its intended position, and
the whole structure Simjdy bolted to
gether, story after story Until it
stands as strong as a solid casting.
It can be taken apart at any time and
re-erected elsewhere Without injury.
Such is the invention Which seems
destined to inaugurate a new era of
