being encased with large stones. The overfall dam is 1,204 feet in length, founded on the bare rock, the deepest portion having a depth of 24 feet below low tides. While on the subject of dams we must not forget that constructed by Lieutenant-Colonel Bailey to rescue the fleet of gunboats on Red River after the disastrous defeat of the army under General Banks in his ill-starred and worse-managed expedition. As the fleet arrived in the neighborhood of Alexandria it was detained by the low stage of water on the falls at that point. It seemed impossible to escape from the trap, but Colonel Bailey constructed a wing-dam 600 feet in length, which concentrated the flow of water in a narrow channel, and made it possible for the gunboats to float down to the lower level, whence they reached the Mississippi. The operation is termed flashing. 2. Of a blast-furnace. See dam-plate; Damstone. Da-mas′cus-i′ron. Damascus-iron is produced by the following method: — Unite by wel<

to which the note belongs, and change with the commencement of each new series. It is entirely automatic, taking up each note separately from the supply on one side, transporting it to the printing-table to be stamped, and subsequently removing it and depositing it in the receptacle for finished notes. The notes are lifted by a gentle force of aspiration produced by an air-pump, and acting through a hollow plate perforated on the under side, and having a regular succession of movements. Bailey's machine is designed for imprinting successive numbers on railway-tickets and their coupons at one operation. It also partially separates the coupons from each other and from the ticket, so that they may be readily torn apart. Edmonson's prints the names of places on tickets, at the same time numbering them consecutively. The cards are fed singly to a horizontal table under a type-box containing the form, which is vertically reciprocated to receive ink from the rollers and to print the

He had a score of followers, and the first machine used in this country, and patented by Bailey (Fig. 4200) in 1822 was of this character. Two machines by Smith, of Deanstone, in England, in 1811, and Scott, of Ormiston, in 1815, were made on this principle, were used practically, and had considerable local celebrity. Smith's machine wasits never became apparent. It was drawn by horses in advance; the cutter-bar projected at the side, and it had a reel to gather the grain to the cutter. The machine had a grain-platform, which was tilted to drop the gavel. The first dropper. Bailey's American mowing-machine (1822). The machines previously mentioned are British.
