ot every kind, far excefnlinc; all the
bonstoJ tkill of the workmen ot
Europe. Mr Coltonofthe IJoston
Journal, the fiwt week he landed
in Asia, found that his chronometer
was out of order from the steel of
the works having become rusted.

! to venture to carry any lancets to
Calcutta, to have them gilded, lie
cause Engli.-h steel could not bear
the atmosphere of India. Yet the
Damascus blades ot the Crusiides
were not gilded, and they are as
perfect as they were centuries ago.
There was one at the London Ex
hibition, the point of which could
be mado to touch the hilt, and
which could lie put into a scabbard
like a corkscrew, and bent every
way without breaking, like an
American politician. Now, the
wonder of that is, that perfect steel
is a marvel of science. It a Lon
dofi chruiiometer-maker wants the
best steel to use in his chronometer
he does not send to Sheffield, the
center of all science, but to the
Punjaiib, the empire of the seven
rivers, where there is no science at
all. The first needle ever made in
England was made in the time of
Henry VIII, and made by a negro,
and when he died the art died with
him. Some of the firt-t travelers
in Africa stated that thev found a
tribe in the interior who .'ave them
better razors than they had, the ir
repressible negro coming up in
science as in politics. The best
steel is the greatest triumph of met
allurgy, and metallurgy is the glory
The poets have celebrated the
perfection of the Oriental steel, and
it is recognized as the finest by
Moore, Hryon, Scott, Sonthey and
many others. I have even heard a
young advocate of the lost arts
find an argument in I'yron's "Sen
nacherib" from the fact that the
mail ot the warriors in that one
short night had rusted before the
trembling Jews stole out in the
morning to behold the terrible work
ot the Lord. Scott, in his "Tales
of the Crusaders'' for S ir Wa'ter
was curious in his love of the lost
arts describes a meeting between
Richard Cseur de Leon and Sala
din. Saladin asks H ichard to show
him the wonderful strength for
which he is famous, and trie Nor
mau monarch responds by severing
a bar of iron which lies on the floor
of his tent. Saladin says, "I cannot
do that," but he takes an eider
down pillow from the sofa, and,
drawing his keen blade across it, it
falls in two pieces. Richard says,
"This is the black art; it is magic ;
it is the devil; you cannot cut that
which has no resistance ;" and Sal
adin, to show him that such is not
the case, takes a scarf from his
shoulders, which is so light that it
almost floats in the air, and, tos
sing it up, severs it before it can
descend. George Thompson told
me he saw a man in Calcutta throw
a handful of floss silk into the air
and sever it into pieces with his
saber. We can produce nothing

Taking their employment of the
mechanical forces, and their move
ment of large masses from the
earth, we know that the Egyptw
had the five, seven or three mechan
ical powers, but we cannot account
for the multiplication and increase
necessary to perform the wonders
In Boston, lately, we have moved
the Pelham Hotel, weiehinc 50,-
j 000 tous, fourteen feet, and are very
! proud of it, and since then we have
moved a whole block of houses

century set up the Egyptian obe-

I Egyptians quarried that stone and
carried it 150 miles, and the Ro
Imans brought it 750 miles, and
i never said a word about it. Mr.
Illatterson, ot Hartford, walking
with Brunei, the architect of the
' 7'hames tunnel, in Egyrit, asked
him what he thought of the me- i was made, civilization changed her

magnificent canals in the land of

Well, I may tell you a little of
ancient manufacture. The Duchess
of Burgundy took a necklace from j
the neck of a mummy ad wore it
at a ball given at the Tuilerics, and
everybody said they thought that j
it was the newest thing there. A
Hindoo Princess came into court,
and her father seeing her, said,
"Go home, you are not decently
covered ; go home ;" and she said.
"Father, I have seven suits on ;" j
but the suits were ot muslin, so
thin that the king could see through
them. A Roman poet says : "The j
girl was in the poetic dress of the ,
country." 1 fancy the French
would be rather astounded at this.
