The tunnel built by Mr. Ilaupt on the
summit of the Pennsylvania Railroad was
a more difficult work than the tunnel under
iho Thames. Tho structures on the Rulti-
' 1 rfM ! t, .il 1 . . TT T"1 .
more aim unto itunroim at jitirpcr n rerrj,
and beyond the summit, built by Latrobej
and the Mnrrocca riatluet, and the -New
York aud Kirio Railroad, built by Julius
Adams, are equal in magnificence and eiw
ccllcnce of workmanship to anything Iirnncl
ever did in England or Moran in France.
The suspension bridge over the Niagara
River at Lewiston, built by Mai. iserrell,
is 1,042 feet 10 inches in one span, and is
43 feet greater than any other single spaa
in the world, being nearly twice as great
and quite as strong as Tellord s celebrated
bridge over the Mcnai Straits in England.
The United States dry-dock at ISrooklyn
is the largest dry-docks in the world by
many feet. The workmanship, done" under
the direction of Mr. McAlpiuc and Gen.
Stuart, is equal, if not superior, to anything
of tho kind anywhere. The plates of iron
used in the gates of this dock are the largest
that had ever been made, up to the time
they wcro rolled. Iho flight of com
bined locks on tho Erie Canal at Lock port,
built by the Stato engineers, are equaled
only in one other place in Christendom
1 he Railroad suspension bridge built by
Rocbling over tho Niagara is within a few
feet of twice the span of Stephenson's great
tubular bridge in England, the largest struc
ture of the kind. It is S00 feel in one span,
and is two stories high, the railroad being
above the public highway. " Nothing like
this exists anywhere else. Tho lighthouse
on Minot's Ledge, being built by Cupt., Al
exander, is iu a more exposed situation, and
ns far as proceeded with, is more securely
bolted together than the fumotis Eddystonc
lighthouse in England. Tho bridgo at
Wheeling, built by Charles Ellct, is exceed
ed nly in span by the Lewiston bridge,
and is heavier than it; it is the second larg
est span m the world, and is much more
beautiful than the Fribourg bridge, its Eu
ropean rival. '
Jn carpentry we are unexcelled in the
world. Such structures in timber as the
dry-docks at San Franciscq and Philadel
phia, McCnllain's and Col. Seymour's bridg
es on the Erie Railroad and "branches, 'the
timber viaducts on the Catawissa hy Sta!-
cleff, Col. Long's bridges on the. various
New England railroads, and How's trusses
at Ilarrisbnrg, have not their equals across
the Atlantic. ' , ' ' " ' '
Then, asain, in Europe many structures
are bnilt thnt might have been avoided; 4
few Imndrcd feet of dctonr would have sav
ed the great Box Tunnel. Now y.-e main
tain that the location of Sidell's division,
for example, on tho Erie, evinced more
skill in avoiding the necessity orirreat struc
tures than could be shown in building thcra.
The stones on either corner of ihe Exchange,
in Boston, built hy Rogers, are larger than
any sincile stone in Cleopatra's Needle, and
those now being put in the United States
Treasury at Wnshmjrtoii are much heavier
than any stone of Pompey'a Pillar or the
Pyramids of Egypt. As to the difficulties
of location, there is no conntry where more
science and skill have been brought to benr
than in onrs, and it is a remarkable fact
that, in point of time last year our average
traveling was fastpr by two and a half miles
per hour than in England, compnring our
principal lines with theirs, while the charg-
CS on me American nnra erc uui uiueuvci
half the English rates. ' .
The reason why these things are not
generally known is, that here we build a
great work, and announce its completion in
the same advertisement that heralds the
opening of the road, and no more is said
alwut it, except, perhaps, what may appear
in one or two scientific periodicals, where
dry feet and inches, stress and strain and
tortion are discussed, and are never read
except by the professional engineer. While,
on the contrary, in England and France, aa
soon as a great work is built, and while it
is being erected, pictures by thousands are
published, medals are struck and circulated,
glass models are made, and illustrated pi
pers show it hi every progress and from ev
ery point of view; the engineer is knighted,
if he is not already of the nobility, and the
fame of the strnctnre is sent from land to
land; while with us, as we have shown, may
be found some ot the most gigantic works
ever undertaken that are passed by and
over without bardly any notice. Is is re
markable that the best popular descriptions
of our own public works of great magnitude
are to be found in the journals of France

thrown open, end every bund was ready to
aid in alleviating their pains. For the
most part, they asked but for wine or wa
ter, for the loss of blood creates thirst, and
the. futigitei of tho day must have been
great from tho length of the battle and the
extent of ground to fight over. Many of
tho soldiers were naked to the waist, their
coats having been torn to pieces in the bay
onet' and hand-to-hand fights, and their
shirts torn up to staunch their blood.. All
were covered with dust, and had their
clothes more or less toru, both officers and
men, and presei!"l, even in the absence of
bloou-ataincd clothes, the most pitiable np

had stumped upon their countenances that
quiet, determined look which soldiers ac
quire in buttle, and which is called iu the
i rcnclt army tho ' professional air.
" The air of resignation, end the quiet,
respectful manner of these brave fellows
rendered tho sccno more touching, more
sympathetic. A noisy, bravado air would
have seriously detracted from the sympathy
and the horror of tho scene. Jf tit all tins,

That T'EitainLE Swoku-Bayo.net. One
of the causes, 6ays European correspondence,
which tins demoralized tho Austrian soldier
is the new weapon, the sword-bayonet, with
which he is attacked by the French soldier,
and against which neither his pwn old bay
onet nor his superior physical strength arc
of any avail. Not only can the sword-bay
onet give thrust fur thrust with the older
weapon, but while it thrusts, or withdraw
after delivering it, it severs the tendons of
the urm or leg of the opponent, thus com
pletely disabling him prior to the last death'
blow.. .Moreover, the irenclt soldier is
taught to wield his weapon by poising it
like a quarter-staff, horizontally, as high as
the head of his adversary, and by a slight
movement in the segment of a circle, .the
sharp blade is swept across the neck, chest,
or face of three, mcu opposed to him in line.
This novel mode of attack cannot be met
by the old musket and bayonet, hence the
Austrian roldier has in despair resorted to
the butt of is musket in endeavoring to
crush, his enemy, who. ogilcj skillful of fence,
and rendered .confident by the superiority
of his new arm, can deliver three wounds
with bis sword-bayonet while his antagonist
is swinging his club. , . ; .
GAWnALM. Tho Paris correspondent of
the Independance Btlgt writes, rejiorting
the conversation of a lady:' ' -
"Then the conversation turned upon
Gnribnhlt, tlie hero of the Roman Revolu
tion, and his great timidity and reserve
among women. 'He was once at Nice,
when I was there,' she said; ' it was during
the winter of 1855, if I remember right; at
all events it was after bis return from Pe
rn. Of course I was anxious to have him
introduced, and would yon believe It?
I had the greatest difficulty in making him
talk, lie ran away. , To bring him back
I liad to make the conquest of his little
daughter, a charming little child, daughter
of the heroic Creole who shared the adven
tures of her husband in America and Italy,
and died in the siege of Rome. ' Through
Miss Garibaldi I reached Mr. Garibaldi,
lie has all the powers of pleasing, especially
an enchanting voice. " It has such sweetness,
snch penetration! " But he cared so little to
profit by these gifts that with one consent
we named him these ladies and I La
Signora.' " , , ,
" Doc Fennel." Many of onr readers
have doubtless wondered, like -us, for what
purpose this hateful weed, which grows so
luxuriantly in lanes and along highways,
was created. We leant from the Marengo
(Iowa county) Visitor that the people of
that place are cutting and coring it for tan

Postage on Election Retibns. The
refusal of certain Virginia postmasters to

led to a correspondence with the Post Of

charging the proper amount of

Fifty Pemochats Ixiuctku The Leav
enworth jail is filled to overflowing with
" good, tried, staunch, and vnlliaut Demo
crats," who have been arrested and Indicted
for fraudulent voting at tho recent election,
Moro than fifty of tho b'y arc In the Jug for
obeying the pnrty injunctions, viz.: "voting
early and often, and keeping on voting un
til the polls were closed." The legal inves
tigation now going on is disclosing an old
fashioned Klckapoo or Oxford swindle.
These fifty elegant Dimocrats ore but a
preface of what is to cornel The Republi
cans ore confident that the apparent Demo
cratic majority will be more than sponged
out ere the frauds committed in Leaven
worth are probed to the bottom.
' The last Kansas Legislature passed a
registry law, nnd the very day after the late
election the officers commenced registring
tho legal voters of Leavenworth county.
It is probably completed by this time, and
it was confidently expected that fully fitt
hundred bogus names would be found on
the poll books in that one county. Similar
frauds wcro committed iu every county in
the Territory, iu which the Democrats had
any hope of success. ,
It is now generally believed that the Re
publicans polled a considerable majority of
the legal votes cast in Leavenworth county,
and if this be substantiated the ten scuts in
tho Convention claimed by the ballot-box
stuffers will be given to the Republicans
In Douiphun and Johnson counties it is al
so ascertained that scores of fraudulent
votes wcro cast by the Democrats, and to
this cause alone their success is attributed.
Tho new registry law will put a stop to
these nefarious Democratic practices in the
future, and will havo the effect of reducing
the Democratic vote in all the river counties.
If each Democratic voter is confined to
casting . one Democratic vote on election
day, there is not a county in Kansas which
this party can carry.
T As it has been generally stated,
through reports from Washington, that
salaries of postmasters throughout the coun
try, aud their c)erks, with other expenses,
would bo defrayed in accruing postages af
ter 30th June, alt., it is proper to sny that
no such view is countenanced at the Depart
ment,. On tho contrary, it is held that not
a dollar can be legally expended until Con
gress meets and makes appropriation on
postoflico account. .What is received by
postmasters after the 30th Juno is held to
be iu tho treasury, and cannot be paid out
for any purpose. They are in effect treas
ury ofiiccrs, and the amount that will accu
mulate in their hands before January next
will be at least $5,000,000 in specie.

The Emperor and King of Sardinia en
