at the moment of their production, by the decomposition at a high temperature of a mixture of sal ammoniac and a substance supplying proto or carbonated hydrogen; (2) for the making of cast-steel from scraps of iron, cemented by the process above described, and melted by the same operation: and (3) the fabrication of steel by the fusion of cemented iron sponge produced by the reduction of ores, forge scoriae, etc., by means of gas derived from peat or hydrogenous matters. Newton, 1848, Marcy, 1849, directed a stream of air, or of air mingled with carbonic oxide, upon the surface of the molten metal in a reverberatory furnace. This failed for lack of penetration. Nasmyth employed blowing-tubes to inject steam below the surface of the metal, to agitate the iron mechanically, and by the decomposition of the steam furnish oxygen for the removal of the carbon, and hydrogen for separating the sulphur and phosphorus. The process failed by too great a reduction of temperature. M
ipitate is washed, dried, and, by means of suitable varnish or other agent, applied directly or mediately to the object. It changes color at about 160° Fah., but resumes its natural color when the temperature is reduced. The second is a bright yellow silver precipitate, produced by adding a solution of silver nitrate to the hydrargyro-iodide solution above. For many purposes the compounds may be applied to cardboard, leather, or thin metal, and by this means attached to the object. Marcy's thermoscope consists of a thin copper tube of very small bore, and having a bulb at one end. This is inserted within a glass tube, fixed on the periphery of a wheel to which it corresponds in curvature. The tube is hermetically sealed at one end, and in it is poured a certain amount of mercury, which assumes the lowest position in the tube. The axis of the wheel carries a hand which serves as a pointer on a graduated index, and the wheel is balanced on knife-edges. The instrument is par

. These were next visited by Colonel Ritchie. The Seventh had been but little exposed in action, and was in magnificent condition. The colonel is held in high esteem. The lieutenant-colonel was regarded as inefficient; the major, a most excellent officer. A board had been appointed to examine the lieutenant-colonel, and he would probably resign. He was discharged Oct. 4, 1862. A great many officers and men were at this time in hospitals, and a good many enlisted men had deserted. General Marcy, of General McClellan's staff, urged the importance of some appeal, by the Governors of States, to the authorities of cities and towns, and the people in general, to force deserters to return to their duties, and give such information concerning such men as to get them returned. Colonel Ritchie reports at great length in regard to filling the existing vacancies in the Seventh and Tenth Regiments, and gives a full and impartial review of the qualifications of those who were naturally loo

the measures of repression demanded of them, and among themselves as to their willingness to try what they could do. Governor Marcy, of New York, refused his assent to the constitutional gloss Lib. 6.13. by which Governor Gayle, of Alabama, made retherefrom, nevertheless held that he had evaded the justice of our laws, and hence was a fugitive to be delivered up. Governor Marcy, however, Lib. 6.13. mingled with his admirable exposure of this attempt on the sovereignty of New York some hearty anticipated by other papers. In the next Liberator (i. e., Jan. 23), if possible, insert the accompanying extract from Gov. Marcy's Lib. 6.17, 13. message, and also the correspondence between him and Gov. Gayle, of Alabama, respecting Williams—espeion of the Nero McDuffie in his Ante, p. 62. message, and the equally despotic suggestions of the Domitian Ante, p. 75.

s sunshine, and make Old and New England the workshops of the world, did not come from colleges or from minds trained in the schools of science, but struggled up, forcing their way against giant obstacles, from the irrepressible instinct of untrained natural power. Her workshops, not her colleges, made England, for a while, the mistress of the world; and the hardest job her workman had was to make Oxford willing he should work his wonders. So of moral gains. As shrewd an observer as Governor Marcy, of New York, often said he cared nothing for the whole press of the seaboard, representing wealth and education (he meant book-learning), if it set itself against the instincts of the people. Lord Brougham, in a remarkable comment on the life of Romilly, enlarges on the fact that the great reformer of the penal law found all the legislative and all the judicial power of England, its colleges and its bar, marshalled against him, and owed his success, as all such reforms do, says his lor

He received in 1853 from Mr. Marcy, then Secretary of State, the offer of the post of assistant secretary, accom your paper, but merely for your private information. More than ten days ago Mr. Marcy communicated to me personally his desire to have my brother in the place, hiskship. My brother was absent from Washington at the time. At the request of Mr. Marcy I sent for him; and on his arrival, at Mr. Marcy's request, he reported himseMr. Marcy's request, he reported himself at the state department, was most cordially welcomed, was assured that not only the secretary but the President desired him to be assistant secretary, that his kn matter was thus pressed upon my brother. But in the course of the interview Mr. Marcy expressed a desire for some confession on the subject of slavery by which my platform,—all of which he peremptorily declined to do, in a manner that made Mr. Marcy say to me afterwards that me had behaved in an honorable manner.

le gentleman, affable in manners, and prompt in apprehension. The orders to our diplomats to abandon their foreign liveries were issued at my earnest instigation; I trust you approve them. On this subject, as on others, both the President and Mr. Marcy listened to me with attention. I mention these things for your eye, as I know you will take an interest in anything which illustrates my position. I do not think General Pierce a great man, but I do not undertake to prophesy with regard to his Administration. His Secretary of State, Mr. Marcy, is a person of wisdom and experience, ignorant of foreign affairs but he knows his ignorance, and in this self-knowledge is his strength. I doubt not he will master most of the questions. Caleb Cushing is a dangerous character, who believes in war. He thinks that the country needs the occupation of a war, and I fear he will try to secure it for us. Guthrie, the Secretary of the Treasury, is a tall, large-limbed, strong-minded Kentuckian. .

ome a free State must affect injuriously the value and security of slave property in Missouri, and generally imperil the institution as a national power. They counted surely, after their experience in 1850, on the cooperation of the Democratic aspirants for the Presidency from the North; and through the influence of these leaders they were assured of the general adhesion of the Democratic party. They obtained without difficulty the hearty support of the President and his Cabinet; Except Marcy, Secretary of State, who maintained a studied reserve. and they found in Senator Douglas of Illinois, then seeking Southern votes for the Presidency, an adroit, unscrupulous, and aggressive leader. Douglas, chairman of the committee on territories, made a report January 4, and submitted a bill for organizing the Territory of Nebraska. The report, after discussing the opposite views of the validity of the prohibition, declined to interfere with it; and the bill as first printed in a city
