IMPROVEMENT  IN  ROAD   STEAMERS.  . Th is rem arkabI e tra ction Jengirie JKas,1'dlir-  \nd tlie past;two years, attracted more notice  anions 'scientific men. than any of the numerous rnnrl locomotives which have ever pre-  c*tleff it- The use of 'steam on common roads  has lone excited the great interest, of alii en-  {r'tneers. as.well ns of fhose who would benefit  ��������� by its -pract'eal introduction. Without dis--  cussinw the special reasons of the failure of  the Boy dell system, with its cumbrous self  , carrying tramway, or the Rray engine with  its prnjectinir/ and receding: claws.operating  through the periphery of its driving wheels,  it may be brleflv staled that no road engine  has   ever  satisfied:, the demand for driving  * heavy trains of wagons on common roada  until the advent of Mr Thompson's ingenious  invention.      ���������-.���������-������,--������������������  Adhesion, without too great weight; fraction, without, destroying the roads; gearing,  which would not break when jolting over  rough pavements, and steerage which would  enable the engine to be easily turned, were  some of the absolute requirements of a practical road locomotive.: The enormous weight,  of the traction enginesl&ith rigid tires, now  used in conncctionvWiw'8team plowing in  England, proves its necessity for the purpose  ofgriining sufficient adhesion. Their provision for inserting teeth in the face of the  wheels tells the story of the destruction of  roads when drawing her y loads. Their inability to use springs causes a wear and tear  of gearing and working parts, which any mechanic will understand, and the time consumed  in turning comers quite unfits them for high  speed.  Many ingenious traction engines have been  made in the United States, but as they were  not constructed for drawing heavy loads,  there was no occasion for them to surmount  the difficulties ...stated above.  In the elastic tire invented by R. W. Thomson, C.E.,of Edinburgh, all these fatal objections have--bees overcome and new powers  developed. The idea of using vulcanised  ...rubber for gaining adhesion, traction, and  'simplicity of gearing, was aa novel as valuable. Even this m eful and important discovery migki have nearer been given to the world  1&$ sbfc H? Tbajttfl&8 beam * $*;������&&&&& &i  1 arge: means as wel 1 as a thoroughly educated  engineer. He was thus enabled to continue  his experiments and perfect his invention before it was brough t be fore the pi 1 b I ic, an d/it  is'probably; for this reason that it at once attracted the notice of the most eminent engineers of the Old and New World. ///>;  ���������We will, now proceed .0 to igive a brief de-,  scrip tiori of Th 0 m sonjs Road S team er.  , The driving wheels 'are about five feet in  diameter with a broad iron tire having narrow flanges, upon which is placed a ring of  soft vulcanized rubber 12 inches in width  and five inches in thickness, which surrounds  the iron tire, and is kept In place by the  flanges. Over the rubber there is placed an  endless chain of steel plates, three and a half  inches wide, which series of plates is the portion of the wheel which comes in contact with  the rough road.: This reticulated chain is connected by what might be properly styled steel  vertebra), at each side of the wheel. The  .rubber tire and this ring of steel plates have  no rigid connection, but-are at; perfect liberty  :to m0ve roilnd indep endently of each ;0ther,  or even without the conenrren ce of the inner  ring of the;.wheel, which they b0th inclose.  Th is i s a remark ab 1 e p otnb i n a M on and i c ohtr i-  biitea to the great success of the wheel as ,a  whole./ Holes are made.in the inner, iron rim  of the wheel to. admit air under the rubber-  ti re. / This en abl es the r it bber to si 0 wl y."  creep, round; the w h eel, so. th at i n goi n g a in i \ e  with a heavy 10ad,iri ,'tow {he-ri\b.ber. tire will:  be" foilnd to have, prept on c������. aronn.d���������.. the iron  ti re; -��������� To this in ge n io n s de v. ice. 'is due the fi a <  destructible nature..of the'tire. An en01 \  mously sudden and' heavy strain upon the  so ft ti re. might tear,, i t, b tit th e si i g h t si i p saves  it. Nearly the whole! weight of .the engine is  upon the drivers, the third wheel in front being only for steering. The steering apparatus  is therefore exceedingly simple, and the rapidity and ease with which it guides the  steamer must.be seen to be properly appro*  ciated. It. will instantly spin around with its  inner driving wheel, describing a circle of  less than six feet in diameter. The weight  upon the rubber tires causes them to collapse  and conform to all the irregularities of the  road for a space of twenty inches each, arid  thus is insured adhesion aud traction, which  cannot" be "oBtmn'eS" 1ft"the-"sirghtt;ne 0f"cott���������-  tact with smooth rigid tires. To this fact is  due the ability of the road steamer to draw  enormous loads and to ascend steep bills.  Perhaps one of its most important features  as concerns its use in this country is its ability  to run over soft ground or muddy roads. The  rigid-tired traction engines in England are  able to slowly grind over their hard and magnificently macadamised roads, but upon our  commorn dirt roads they would be utterly useless. In this respect the road steamer has not  inaptly been compared to the elephant and  camel, whose elastic cushioned leet enable  them to cross the soft yielding sands of the  .desert. It is this same elastic cushion which  prevents injury to the roads, and which, acting as springs or buffers between the rough  road and the gearing) saves the machinery  from damage. The work done by the wheel  in depressing the rubber in front, is again  performed by tlie rubber at the rear in urging  the wheel forward, so that the on-e exactly  balances the other, hence there ia no loss,  The boiler used is of the verlic al tubular  type, made entirely of steel and c onstructed  with special regard to simplicity and great  strength. All the gearing and wo rkhig parts  are either ot steel or malleable iron, and are  entirely hidden from sight. Af 1. ingenious  device in connection with the exhaust steam  aiffiOBt suppresses the noise caused by its es-  Tk eoil l>������������te* bM a fla^s mi^y*  and the water tanks hold a third of a day's  supply. There, is a single gear for quick  speed, and a double gear for.heavy loads.���������  The engines are double cylinders with a reversing gear. Either of the driving wheels  can be thrown in or out ef gear, so that, in  turning short earners 'the'Inner wheel is. out  qf gear, slipping freely, while the outer wheel  dri ires the m ach in e arbu rid/.  When attached to a leaded train of four  wagon3 by a simple triangle coupling, the  whole can be'turned in any. road.of ordinary  width, each wagon following in. the exact  wake of the steamer. The loads drawn by the  two sizes now made are from twelve to twenty  tons, up inclines of one in twelve; and twenty  to thirty tuns on an ordinary level road. The  speed varies from two and a half to-six miles  per hour' for frieght steamers, and ten miles  per hour if constructed specially for passenger  service. The consumption of coal*averages  about half a ton per day. About three times  as much wood by weight is.required to far-  hi$h;the same steam power.- >���������'[  ��������� All ther'rbad steamers can be fitted with a  fly wlieel arid governor, so as to run as stationary engines for driving any descriptio0 of  machineryZ -; ���������"��������� ���������*"- SI\;; > '��������� ��������� ".���������: '}���������. ���������';'-;* /:< v  /:> The; British QqvernmeoVappointed a commission 0f nii 1 itary me n; to exami ne these road  steamers with the view of adopting them in  the \Yar.Department.

The Magistrate decided that Ah Wy should  proceed with the interpretation until objection should be raised by the other parly as to  his correctness, and should he not interpret  satisfactorily he would be dismissed.  Quong Ming, the prosecuting .witness, was  sworn and said:���������Defendants kept a bank  and lottery, [Here the other interpreter  jumped up and said "money, hot-bank.'7]  Witness bought a ticket for $2 50 in Lottery  ISO V sold half of same for $1 12������ to Ting  Fat; he won nine red letters, so did Ting  Fat; asked for money, but defendants said  they didn't see how they could pay both.

Witness asked ChmgSingto  put the money.in bank in the meantime ; he  declined to do so ; disputed with him and,  said letters never came from California;  witness called a meeting of Chinamen at tlie  Chine?".' restaurant, where 30 or 40 were present; Ching Sing then.said he would pay next  day, but when the time came he refused to do  so. Next, night witness got a lot of Chinamen and asked Ching Sing to come to the  restaurant, but he didn't come. ^  The Magistrate desired the interpreter to  tell witness that it appeared he wanted to get  the money alleged to be won.  Witness--'* Yes ; I want to get money."  The Magistrate said he could not allow the  Court to be made a medium for recovering  gambling money. Witness was just as much  Implicated and'equally liable to punishment  as the other. The case, however, was not sufficiently clear to convict the defendants, but  he gave them Warning that if they were  proved hereafter to be -cavrying on any lottery he should send them to jail for three  months as rogues an������ vagabonds.

Few persons are aware how knowledge is  sometimes, necessary to give the etymology  and definition of a word. It is easy to define  words, as certain persons satirised ^y Pascal  have defined light; w A luminary movement  of .luminous bodies ;" or, as a Western Judge  once defined murder to a jury :=:-./'* Murder,  gentlemen^ is when a man is murderously  killed.������It is the murdering that oonstitutes  murder in the eye of ;tthe law. Murder, in  short, is���������murder." We have"all smUed at  Johnson's definition of network. "Network  ���������-anything recticulated or decussated at equal  distances/ with interstices between the intersections." Many of the definitions in our  dictionaries remind one of Bardolph's attempt  to analyse the term accommodation. "Ac-  commodation^-that is whe,n a man is^ as they  say acconimodated, or when a man is being  whereby he may be thought to be accommodated , wh i ch j s an excel I e ri fc th i rig." .
