A German professor���������the  nationality to be noted���������begged two con*  dernhed Communists, named Dod^b and Brun,  from M. Thiers, in order that;he Wight, as a  scientific experiment, kill them tfnd bring  them to life afja^R aft the end of tteee months  after death.   His plan was to eject solution  of cal^c in to the sy ste m by which deiponip osi-  tjon was to be prevented; and according to  his theory the-patient might be revived, not  only at the end of thYee months, but at the  end of three htradredyears, sicoofdiag to desire.: In the presence of medial men and  pnbllc^ funetioitaries, the Profiessor, having  administered chloroform to each ot the men,  injected the .solatlon and then bled there till  they died.  The corpses were then dessicated  by the beat of fnrnaces till they shrivelled,  and till the skin fcepamo yellow, lfke leather.  Ia this state they remained in ambderate  temperature for the prescribed three months,  and tlien the process of tevivication "began  by injecting tlie blood ot two healthy labor-  ers and by the application of fhe galvanic  battery,   The process completely failed in  the case of Dodu,   But in the 'case of Brun  the result was, to say the least, surprising.���������  First, the opaque eyeballs rolled in their yellow sockets, the muscles began to twitch, the  heart to beat, and at last.after fourteen hours  'of treatment, Brnn spoke, rose from the table,  swallowed a bowl of beef tea and several  omrces of brandy, and audibly grumbled of  soreness in bis limbs and of ^aM in the regions that had rested on the table.   He is  now alive and well in Switfcerla'nd, under the  assumed name of Fourbe, while a post mortem examination showed that fatty degeneration of tfbe beart had prevented the revival  of Dofrfi. So any on������ who wishes to see how  tbe worid loofcs a hundred years hence has  only to apply the solution calx &&d to leave  iSorjBtanUy kept on hand.

Editor Sentinel:��������� I ask the favor of a  little space to briefly notice a few assertions  made in public recently in connection with  the subject of remodelling the Mining Laws  of this Province. *In the discussion of an important question like this men should give  utterance to their views, crude and secluaive  though tbey may be, and support such views  with all the reason and logic their brilliant  minds may possess ; but when they step^be-  yond the bounds of fair discussion and suffer  too many ideas to present themselves to their  little minds at once in combining those ideas  in their feeble grasp, truth, logic and repartee  "are lost and only falsehood is grasped.  By your report of tbe proceedings of the  meeting at VanWinkle, I see thatone of  Lightning's wise men did not think it advisable to amend the laws for the purpose, of  giving an opportunity to a few Montgomery  street sharps aud kerb-stone brokers to gobble  up tbe whole country.   Then comes a series  of falsehoods and figures, and in drawing a  comparison between the Lane & Kurtz Co.  and tbe mining companies on Lightning, the  former is made to sink into utter insignificance.  Of the expenditure of the various companies  of Lightning I have no knowledge, but if a  correct report of this man's exhibit of expenditure, salaries, &c,? of tbe Lane & Kurtz Co.  has been made to me. then I have not the  slightest hesitation  in  characterising such  showing as an unmitigated falsehood from  begiaaicg to end, '������q toeusrW tho wd������  : Editor Sentinel;���������I understand that tW  miners' meeting held on Tuesday week at the"  Theatre was very boisterous. All things considered, it is not ihuch to be wondered at.-*  Could anything be more  preposterous than  the message sent up by our senior mbmberjat  tbe eleventh hour, on the eve of the cl'osing  of the session and while a committee of the  House was deliberating on important changes  in the Mining Laws, asking us to give an;  opinion without a moment's previous warning I   Surely it is not a matter of a "������. house-  on fire.7-  If it was a part of the present Min������  istry's programme: te effect changes of such  magnitude, why not send sooner to. give alt.  an opportrinity% consider their bearing oii  our interests? v;;It looks very '..Wticb:'---Uk!ii,.-;������ik  attempt to steal a march on us, and the result  of some wire pulling. .

It is to be  hoped that this country ia not to be made. a  field of operation for unscrupulous Bpecula������  tors of either London or San Francisco. They  are the bane of every country they are found  in.   Tbe Company on the Meadows under  Colonel Lane has expended a goodly sum of  money on their claim, and may they succeed  to their hearts' content.   The four and a half  miles on an important creek included in their  charter is a proof of the liberal spirit with  which they were met and gives them elbow  room enough for tlie employment of all the  capital they are able to bring ; but the recollection of the attempt to obtain another on  Lightning creek, to cover about two miles of  ground already occupied by other companies,  suggests the propriety of vigilance on the.  part of miners generally,     ' J.

As-t'iis great Monitor progresses in beroirt-  tfifc at Portsmouth the fascination she exercises  rover tbe minds of naval men becomes daily  nnore-evident, and yet probably no vessel Of  -war lias ever excited so great a diversity df  ���������opinion.   All agree that the Devastation is a  wonderful fighting mac hi he, and that there is:  ���������really much "to be learnt in tbe handling of  rguch a machine quite beyond previous expe-  irieuces at sea, but these are the orily points  tipon which they <san be found at present  ninanimoue.   A goodly number stand by tbe  ���������original design of Mr Reed,-with thelow'free-  'board forward and aft, and say, "*Wa stand  upon scientific principles, and we believe in  Mr Reed's original design,-and altogether dif-  "believe in opinions expressed arid alterations  made in a design for an entirely new kind of  "war machine by non-scientific-men.''   On the  other band, it is 11 nred by the advocates for  ihe decisions arrived at by the committee  ���������presided over by Lord Dufferin, that the Prestation, ijas been very greatly improved in  ���������the amount of fiefhtiog force when rolling at  ���������extreme angles, in convenience for her officer^  -an d ere w, and in safe ty tb her fore arid a ft  ���������magazines from rakibg fore or aft Are, by the  ���������alterations and additions suggested by the  'committee., .The Devastation, in fact, was so;  ���������entirely new -a*type of war vessel when ber  ���������drawings were completed, that as she grew in  ���������dock points ra ber constructive- arrangement  *jame into prominenceyand original ideas had  to be modified.    Under the conditions o'  change which tbe Devastation has undergone,  an'd which her larger sisters; tbe Fury and  "Teraeraire* are to undergo, we can well dismiss all wonder that opinions held by naval  irien upon tbequalificatioris,good and bad. of  ^the Devastation aa a sea-going craft should be  widely divergent.   "Now, we know the^ower  of the DevastaliocTs macblnery���������tbose magnificent twin screw engines "by John Penn &  Son,and the exceptionally ^great mean speed  of the vessel under full steam ; the ten thousand tons weight of the vessel moving through  the water at this speed as a rarii;  her won-  -derfiii handiness and powers of turning as a  ram *, the penetrative and Braashing energy of  toar. Mfour 35-ton :gnns, a������d the resistance to  any enemy's shot-given by the-heavy armor  plati&g arid its iron-framed backing, over the  turrets, the water-line, or line at which the  -ship swims at load draught, and all otber  parts connected with the ship's "life'* as a  ���������floating structure.  These are all acknowledged: facts; but the great thing is, the De-  ��������� vastation has. not yet been to sea.   What can  toe;reallysaid for or against ber stability and  'buoyancy at sea, and her ��������� habitabillty-^two  of the gravest^^ questions that^can n<&w be put  forward?..": ������������������/    'J. -.'..  .  ���������   With regard to tbe probable behaviour op  the Devastation at pea, it is only possible,  without: present lights'upon the subject, to  i&ifi up* the views expressed by Mr Reed in  the last number of Naval Science as conclusive of any opiakn upoa the subject.   The  diagram there given :by Mr Reed (upon her.  present form as  possessing the broadside  superstructaire recommended by Lord Duf-  ferinV comniittee)  places  the  Devastation'  above any possible chance from danger by  inclination under any 'conditions of sea. or  wind, so long as her engines and twin screws  are, kept mwiflg.   When any vessei, as a  steamer, drifts into a position at sea with absolutely ho '���������*. way" upon her, she must ineyit  ^tbly go down as the Captain did, if struck by  & sudden squall of wind and with any canvas  ���������set.   The Devastation has no sail to set, but,  if sbe were caught lying motionless upon the  water in the Bay of Biscay or off (he coast of  Portugal by a strong Atlantic squall, the  chances are Bimply that she would go down,  as the Captain Went down. In Capt. Hewett's  liands she will be safe, as she would be, indeed, witb tbe majority of our naval officers,  whose rule for tbe ship's preservation, and  overriding all other things, would be���������'* keep  ihe screws moving."  The babitability of tbe Devastation as a  eea-golng craft is a matter well worth considering. If we take the DevastaUoaia harbor I  or during fine weather at sea, she will be  found R������very comfortable and weU ventilafed  vessel.  But as the Devastation is a vessel inr  tended to steam over a distance equal, to a  voyage to "New Tork and back again without  coaling, she 'must be considered witb a view  to whatlier condition will "beln her sea-going  trim in rough weather; with all the openings  fast'battened down, arid /with the;ajr^for  breafbmjt by the officers and crew only to be  (Obtained below "by tbe aid of mechanical ap-;;  pliances.   So far as the trial of the ship Ont-  side the Isle of Wight can furnish data, there  is every reason for belief that the supply of  fresh air has "been adequately provided for,  but this important question of the ventilation  of the ship can be only definitely settled by  her trip to sea. and in rough weather.   : ;  Tbe accommodatton below for the officers  In the after-part of the vessel is most ample.  The beigbt between the decks is no less than  7J feetj and the breadth and length of cabins  arid mesa berths is proportionately large. A  system of air piping is carried oat through  all parts of tbe ship below.    ��������� ���������: -  The half-raised forecastle Tot tbe accommodation of the crew forward is fitted withair  pipes and stop-cooks. The " superstructure;'J!  which, as we "have oca previous occasion ex  plained, is an addition made to the Devasta-  tion upon the recommendatipri. of the: Committee appointed by the Admiralty to inspect  upon the designs of ships. *&c, is simply I a  raising of the freeboard of tho vessel amidships, or for about three-fourths of tbe ws-;  sePs length, by ordinary ligbt iron platmg,;  sucb as is used in the building of ocean goiug  steamships. This gives a covered passage-of  alsout ffve feet lu width on e������cb side of tbe:  breastwork armor-plated walls; but baying  more space at the after ends, it there permits  a space for a captain's cabin, of horseshoe  shape at the elliptic ends, with a ward robni  frr the officers at fhe opposite side. ft-also  g:ves room for a capital and roomy Rleeplriir  cabin for tbe capt am; for a roomy engineer's  mess.an equally roomy sick berth, andbther  offices. Altogether, we havftreason to .think  that the Devastation will prove to be at sea;  a not very uncomfortable craft/or short voyi  ages (and it must be remembered that .she is  intended for nothing else than short voyages)  and'that whatever faults may be found existing when she is fairly tried at sea, they will  only be such faults as may be reasonably expected in. so novel a craft, and such as ennbe  very easily remedied.���������[London Times;���������>  LEGAL NOTICES, <&c.
