hey are now generally employed in iron vessels, and their adoption has become a law and is enforced in England, under the regulations of their Board of Trade; in small vessels they can only be used transversely, but in larger ones they may be applied longitudinally, and are so employed in the Great Eastern, or were before she was refitted to adapt her for the great work of laying the submarine cables of the world. The ship Terror, Commander Back, fitted with bulkheads for Arctic service in 1835, came home with the after section full of water. Bull-dog. (Fr. torchis.) (Metal-working.) A refractory material used as a lining for the boshes of puddling or smelting furnaces. It is a decomposed protosilicate of iron. Bul′len. The awn or chaff from flax or hemp. Bul′len-nail. An upholsterer's nail, with a round head, a short shank, turned and lacquered. Bul′let. (From the French boulet, diminutive of boule, a ball.) A small projectile for fire-arms. The use of r<
loosened from the grain. Subsequent rubbing, brushing, dusting, and winnowing complete the process of hulling. The coffee cleaner and polisher operates upon the grain subsequently. The machine is similar to a rice-huller. Ditson's patent, 1835, has abrading surfaces made by perforating sheet-iron. See also Adams's patent, 1836. Subsequent to these are about ten others, which have certain peculiarities of construction. In the example, the husk is removed from the coffee while passing . 1390 the colter is shown as secured by a sidebar and shackle. The wheelcolter in Fig. 1391 is mounted as a casterwheel. It has long been employed in the fen lands of England. Colt's Pis′tol. A revolving pistol first patented by Colt in 1835, and perfected in 1845. See revolver. Colum-ba′ri-um. 1. A hole left in a wall for the insertion of the ends of a timber; named from its resemblance to a niche in a pigeon-house. 2. A niche in a mausoleum for a funereal urn was also so

This is an essential condition to obtaining useful mechanical results from electricity itself, where a long circuit of conductors is used. — Prescott, History of the Electric Telegraph. In 1832, Professor Morse began to devote his attention to the subject of telegraphy; and in that year, while on his passage home from Europe, invented the form of telegraph since so well known as Morse's. A short line worked on his plan was set up in 1835, though it was not until June 20, 1840, that he obtained his first patent, and nearly four years elapsed before means could be procured, which were finally granted by the government of the United States, to test its practical working over a line of any length; though he had as early as 1837 endeavored to induce Congress to appropriate a sum of money sufficient to construct a line between Washington and Baltimore. Professor Morse deserves high honor for the ingenious manner in which he avai

Scheffer's fountain-pen, introduced in England about 1835, had a reservoir of ink in the holder, and the ink is admitted to the pen by the pressure of the thumb on a projecting stud. Parker's hydraulic pen, invented about the same time, had a piston in the holder, operated by a screw stem and a nut on As the skin is drawn forward over the projecting edge of the bed, the long hairs stand out nearly at right angles, and are seized and extracted by ribs on a pair of revolving cylinders which are placed in front of the bed. Graham's machine, 1835, passes the skin between two feed-rollers over a third higher roller, which spreads the hairs, which are pinched between a revolving blade and the elastic surface of a leathercovered cylinder, and so pulled out of the skin, which is stretched and
at in the condensation a considerable amount of caloric was rendered sensible, and that in re-expanding the same amount of caloric was rendered latent. Cooper, 1835 (English patent, No. 6875), describes an engine in which one part oxygen and two parts hydrogen are ignited to produce a vacuum alternately on each side of a pistoon.Tin.Lead.Antimony.

Sellers's United States patent, 1835, has a similar device, and it is also used by Fell on the White Mountain Railroad in New Hampshire and the Mt. Cenis Railway, which climbs the Alpine pass, co
s introduced by the opening at i. Heating-stoves. The air passing from the lower flues c c through the apertures beneath the horizontal partition, and coming in immediate contact with the surface of the cockle, finds its way into the upper air-chamber e e through the numerous pipes or openings of the upper division, by which circuit its velocity will be sufficiently retarded to obtain the necessary elevation of temperature from the heated cockle. In the plan submitted by Sylvester, 1835, for warming and ventilating the Houses of Parliament (E, Fig. 2474), the fresh air was to be admitted through an underground channel a b to a cockle c beneath the floor of the building. It is thus heated about 15° in winter or cooled a like amount in summer. On passing through the cockle it spreads into the open space d d, and thence is distributed to all parts of the chamber through apertures in the floor. The ascending vitiated air, passing through openings e e in the ceiling, is discha

A horizontal table carrying a revolving mold, on which earthen vessels are shaped. A potters'-wheel; a throwing wheel. b. A templet or former which is used in shaping the interior of a crucible or other vessel when the clay is upon the wheel. See Fig. 1536, supra. See also Lecons de Ceramique, Vol. II. p. 122 et al.; also Feldspath Porcellan, Weimar, 1835, Figs. 79, 80, 82, Taf. VII. 2. (Felting.) To harden and condense a felted fabric by repeated quick blows from rods, or by a platen or platens having a rapid vibratory motion. A machine for felting fiber by an intermittent rolling action upon the material, which lies upon a table, and is kept warm and wet. 3. (Nautical.) a. A double and single blocktackle, used for such jobs as holding on to the cable, abaft the capstan, as the cable is heaved in. Also used in hauling home the t
canister shot, discharged from cannon. These are contained in an envelope which is ruptured either by a bursting charge within or by the force of projection, and have consequently a tendency to scatter over a considerable area. The mitrailleur, or machine-gun, on the contrary, sends a large number of small projectiles independently, and with precision, to a considerable distance. French mitrailleur. The infernal machine with which Fieschi attempted to assassinate Louis Philippe in 1835, and succeeded in killing eighteen persons, including Marshal Mortier, and wounding a large number of others, besides severely injuring himself, was one of the earliest attempts with which we are acquainted for producing a simultaneous discharge from a number of gun-barrels. These were arranged side by side on a bench or stand, and fired by a train, much as in the mode of firing barrels in a proving-house. That first tried in the French service was made by removing part of the breech from
w delivered by the paddle is much exaggerated. Galloway's patent, 1835, specifies paddles of cycloidal form, which enter the water nearly vsion form a combined broad float. 3. Leeming's sliding float (B), 1835. The arms are grooved and the paddle-boards slip out and in by the in 1801, upon paper re-made from old printed and written paper. In 1835, Piette published a work on the subject of Paper from straw, etc., gA part of Broadway, between Chambers and Warren Streets, was laid in 1835 with hexagonal wooden blocks. Various foundations were tried: cobbl' shops of London. The prejudice was strong against them, and up to 1835 or thereabouts quills maintained their full sway, and much later amohe pen and the hand. Scheffer's fountain-pen was introduced about 1835 by Mordan. The pressure of the thumb on a stud in the holder caused, and the latter was driven by atmospheric pressure. (Vacuum.) In 1835, Pinkus, an American in England, changed the scheme, the motion of a

Stimpson's patents of 1831, 1835, describe the mode of turning curves in streets by raising the outerand, from 1840 to 1866, there were patented 22 electric brakes; from 1835 to 1865, 20 hydrostatic brakes; from 1838 to 1866, 30 pneumatic brak ground, 22.608 inches.

Randall had a pair of knife-bars reciprocating past each other. Wrting from the shoulder. Colonel Colt obtained his first patent in 1835, but his weapon was not perfected until 1845. On visiting England, ll of which discharge through one barrel, was patented in England in 1835, and in this country in 1836. The rifle (A B C, Fig. 4292, page 1
