er machine appears to have met the fate of all its kindred contrivances. About the same time, a Mr. Henson, in England, patented a machine consisting of a car attached to a huge, rectangular, wing-like frame, covered with oiled silk or canvas, and to be propelled by a steamengine in the car working two vertical fan-wheels with oblique vanes; while a frame like the tail of a bird was to act as a rudder, and make the apparatus ascend or descend at pleasure. It did not ascend. In 1850, a Mr. Bell ascended from Kennington, England, in an aerial machine in the form of a prolate spheroid, which, it is said, he propelled by a screw, and steered by means of an apparatus for that purpose, during a flight of nearly thirty miles. If this be so, it must have been probably owing to the serenity of the atmosphere. During the same year, M. Julien at Paris made a model balloon, shaped like a fish, which was made to move in the air by clock-work operating a pair of wings. The model was four

a peculiar polish. The blue-pointing is a dark polish effected by applying the needles to a revolving stone of a bluish color. The drilled-eyed needles have the eyes finished by a countersink drill, the eye end being previously softened. Bell's needles, English patent, are made of steel, cast in sand molds. The mode is particularly intended for bodkins, fish-hooks, knitting, netting, packing, and sail needles. 2. (Surgical.) The acupuncture-needle is a gold or silver needle, foon. — Ency.

tern of the boat, over the keel. In 1789, Oliver Evans, of Philadelphia, had a stern-wheel steamboat which navigated the Schuylkill. In 1795, Lord Stanhope invented the duck-feet paddles, and ran a boat three miles an hour. In 1796, Fitch had a steamboat on Collect Pond, New York, propelled by a screw astern. In 1802, Symington's double boat, Charlotte Dundas, was propelled by one middle paddle-wheel abaft the engine and working in the space between the twin boats. Fulton's and Bell's steamboats had side paddle-wheels, as also the Savannah, 1819, Enterprise, 1825, Great Western and Sirius, 1838. The Great Britain, 1843, had a screw, and after this the screw became common. See paddle-wheel. The term propeller is usually applied to the longitudinal revolving shaft with vanes or wings, and more specifically known as the screw-propeller. The first use of the propeller was by Stevens, of Hoboken, who used twin-bladed screws in 1804. See screw-propeller. The b

The Maynard rifle was perhaps the first in which a metallic cartridge was employed. The report of Major Bell to Colonel Craig, Chief of Ordnance, United States Army, May 16, 1856, describes the firing of Dr. E. Maynard's rifle, charged with a metallic cylindrical water-proof cartridge, and dwells upon the important fact of the coincidence of the axes trands laid or spun around a hempen core; each strand consisting of six wires laid the contrary way around a smaller hempen core.

We had a visit from the Fullertons, and dined at Sir Charles Bell's, the well-known surgeon, and author of one of the Bridgewater Treatises. Lady Bell is quite a delightful person, Lady Bell is quite a delightful person, and must once have been beautiful, for she is still fine-looking; and Sir Charles, though beginning to grow old, is fresh, perfectly preserved, and abounding in pleasant knowledge and accomplishment. Sir William and Lady Hamilton were there; Mrs. ns, who had invited us for any day we could reserve for them. The party was small, but very agreeable,—Sir Charles and Lady Bell, Professor Wilson, Sir W. Hamilton, young Mr. Gregory, brother of Mrs. Alison and son of the famous Professor Gregory.
