The men were lately alive who professed to recollect the time when the swarms first made their appearance on the west side of the Mississippi. They are said to keep a little in advance of civilization. Huber wrote on bees in 1796, and the bee-anatomists and physiologists are but his followers. Samson found a swarm of bees in the land that flowed with milk and honey. Honey was prohibited as an offering on the altar under the Levitical law, but its first-fruits were pre

lowered to the mud, and traversed by an endless chain provided with boards at intervals. The boards scraped up the mud and carried it up in the trough, from whose upper end it was discharged into lighters. A horsewheel was employed. In the reign of Charles I., Balme made a vertical wheel with six buckets, which worked between boats and raised mud. It was employed in the fens of Lincolnshire. About 1708, Savery patented a steam dredgingmachine for raising ballast from the Thames. In 1796, Watt made a steam dredger for deepening Sunderland Harbor. The dredging-machine described by the Marquis of Worcester was a water-screw, but the bottom made of iron plate, spade-wise, which at the side of a boat emptieth the mud of a pond or raiseth gravel. The dredging-machine described in the Theatrum Instrumentorum et Machinarum, 1578, was rather an elevator than a dredger. The buckets were attached to endless chains, which passed over two drums, driven by winch-power. Laborers fi
d came opposite the hole in the screen and then made the signal, causing the divergence of the pith-balls at the instant that the same letter became visible to the observer at the other station through the aperture in his screen. Betancourt, in 1796, constructed a single-line telegraph between Madrid and Aranjuez, a distance of twenty-seven miles, in which the electricity was furnished by a battery of Leyden jars, and the reading effected by the divergence of pith-balls. It was not, howevenstances the apparatus is intended for the use of those unable to take walking exercise. The bedridden patient uses the arms to flex and extend the legs and keep the body in motion, the bedstead rocking on its centers. Lounde's English patent, 1796, described a gymnasticon with treadles for the feet and cranks for the arms. It is adapted to exercise a limb which may have no voluntary motion, and may be used by a patient sitting, standing, or lying. Ex-haust′er. (Gas-making.) An appa
hemical changes and combinations in the constituents of the mass, which is then pulverized for use. The so-called Roman cement, patented in England by Parker in 1796, is prepared from nodular concretions of limestone, usually containing veins of calc spar, found in beds of clay. Portland cement, which ranks among the higheste latter; being, however, forced into the air-chamber, this effect was exerted intermediately through the compression of the air, rendering it more constant. In 1796, Montgolfier, one of the inventors of the balloon, invented the self-acting ram, for which he obtained a gold medal at the French Exposition of 1802. This is absois is the Bramah hydraulic press. The first one ever made is in the museum of the Commissioners of Patents (England), and is inscribed, Bramah, Invt. Et fect. 1796. The celebrated Maudslay was mechanically educated in Bramah's shop. In N (page 1157) the operation of this machine may be readily understood. a is a reservoi

That of the external iliac by Abernethy, 1796. The internal iliac by Alexander Stevens, in 1812. The common iliac successfully by Dr. Valentine Mott, in 1827. The common carotid by Sir Astley Cooper (successfully), in 1808. The innominata by Mott in 1818, and successfully by Dr. Jondition. Senefelder discovered and developed to perfection a totally new method, in which the chemical constitution of the materials employed plays a vital part. The history of this invention, which occupied him three or four years, viz. from 1796 to about 1800, is interesting and instructive, but too lengthy for our space. It will be found fully given in his own work upon this subject, which has been translated into English. The invention was the result of earnest, persistent, and hig
of almost all corrosive substances, and is consequently well adapted for mortars in the chemist's laboratory. While honoring the names of those who have distinguished themselves in making pottery an art, we must remember Charles Avisseau (born, 1796) the potter of Tours, the city celebrated for the great victory gained by Charles Martel over the Saracens, October 10. 732.--a victory which, under God, determined the language, religion, and the form of civilization of Europe. Palissy had died om stem to stern 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. Ful
n Docks, a few years since, and may be yet. Platform-scales were probably in use in England in 1796, one being patented in that year by Salmon. Platform-scales. In the ordinary platform-scale Watt's double-fire furnace. A modification of the Watt furnace, by a Mr. Thompson, patent 1796, had an extension of the grate bars and arched bridge, about 2/3 the distance from the front end.l subsequent trips. The cylinder was 12 inches diameter, had 3 feet stroke (a, Fig. 5607). In 1796, he tried a steamboat, 18 feet long, 6 feet beam, on the Collect Pond, New York City, where the T rope-machine. He submitted his plan for improving canal navigation to the British government in 1796, and patented it in 1797. He pursued the subject in correspondence with Earl Stanhope during his and seems to have been a very rude affair. Finlay constructed a chain-bridge in this country in 1796, over Jacob's Creek, between Uniontown and Greensburg, Pa., taking out a patent in 1801; in 1811
sed by springs. The movement is variously known as a knuckle, knee, or elbow movement. See Stanhope printing-press, page 1796. b. A press for making electrotype molds from forms of type. The platen a has a projecting table upon which the formy one which is graded and either macadamized or graveled, so as not to be mere mud. The first American turnpike act was in 1796, — the National Road from Baltimore to Illinois. See paving; road. 3. A turnstile (which see). 4. A winding stair many years afterward in the ammunition-chest of an old field-piece to which Buell had been attached during the war. In 1796, Archibald Binny (as he wrote it then), of Edinburgh, Scotland, came to Philadelphia, bringing with him his own tools; theiption on the reverse, under an appropriate group of figures and tools, is, Letter-foundry of Philadelphia, established A; 1796. The old hand-mold and spoon reigned supreme till 1838, when the first successful type-casting machine was invented by
scovery of Jenner, was regarded as the best protection against the horrors of the small-pox, was practiced in China at a very early period, and probably found its way to Europe by the same secret channels as those arts whose footsteps are so difficult to trace. Western Europe obtained it from the Turks in 1721, Lady Mary Wortley Montagu having made the first experiment of its efficacy by inoculating her son while residing at Constantinople, in 1718. Vaccination was discovered by Jenner in 1796. Inoculation is the older and more generic term; the name vaccination, derived from the source of the pustule matter coming later, as we see in the current news of that day. Vac′u-um-appa-ra′tus. A mode of or device for producing a proximately complete or partial vacuum. See air-pump for the most familiar form, and list under air-appliances and machinery for a number of less common devices. See condenser for the applications of a jet or cold surface to the production of a proximat
