tlie company , of capitalists who pin
chased he land grants' belonging to the
5niitafy"Road Company; the corpora
tion includes a number of the heaviest
capitalists in San Francisco who could,
if ' they thought proper, construct the
roal without any assistance from any
other quarter - It is slated, however j
that the Central Pacific Company in
tend to take hold of the enterprise, and
that statement is supported by the fact
that Governor Stanford and other mem
hers of that corporation are on the way
north', intending to traverse and view
the route. Altogether, the thing looks
more favorable now than ever before.
The recent contest IxHwecn American,

that is that the American breech-loading

and the Sharp breech-loading rifle, while
both the Irish ami English teams used
their best muzzle-loaders, and the Amer

M.r. Keely alleges that, the discovery of
this power "was purely accidental. Up to
witliin h t-hort time he was a poor man. Lilt
having a. wonderful degree of natural me
chanical ski!!, lw devotetl all Ids time for
the past fourteen year-to esM-rlinent with
water with a view of procuring a niofivc
power fmm it. lie was engaged uOii an
idea of hU own reg.mliug tli forcu ot col
uinns of water one day. when lie accidental
ly discovered the vapor which fie has lr,vr
nessed. Us studieit the stibjeet. ascertain
ed lsow it was generated, learned its pow
er, and henceforth applied himsclt solely to
the perfection of this idea, work i up: night
and day for a nnuibef tif yea.is, uutii his ef
forts ere crovrnvd with -success. The ap-jKii-itns
iiy which the power is made
ovide is termed a "general 01"' or iiiu!ti
pMcalor." and the . v.iKr is then passed into
a " receiver," and frntn thence to the cyl
inder box of the engine, where it drives the
pistons and sets the engine in motion. The
"generator" is alxuVt three feet high,
made ot Austrian gun nut:i!. tit one solid
piece, mill v.i'l l:o:d about ten or twelve
ja Hons of water. It i- four or live ii:vhes
thick, and made to stand the very heavy
presire of 2(.!00 to :0,UO pounds of vapor
to 1 he s-.piare incii.
Mr. Keely claini that thHf!pp:ir:itns wiil
generate cold vapor from water by mechan
ical appliance, without the u-e ot cfit inic--al.-.
The water u-ed Is coiumou ri?er;
siring, or well water, and does net under
go any previous preparation, a rirbher hose
from an onliietiy hydrant to the g.-ner.-rtor
being u-d as a means of conveying the
Ii'iuid. Th pecivli-ivVt'y ot l!;is vapor is
that it can be used to the htrt advantage at.
a pressnrs 01 ttoni 20,000 to J10.01X) pomals
to the s p-isi re i:icli. To the luei-hatiieal
mind this seems impussiiiie. Yet such is
the claim of Mr. Keely. aud it Iiks been at
tested that such is tt-e f.ict by gentlemen
who .tre hekl to be niechanical ex) ei-ts ot
the highest grade. Yet. wish all thW ini
mense p'.sitrtr at hi losnmand. the inven
tor is en.-d-iled to control iA.-t eiisiii". :nid
run ft with the same ea;. aud facility as
engines are now run l.y steam. The parts
of the generator and mu'tipMcsttor are all
ntiule of wcidel iron, of great thickness and
strength. The connecting pipes are also
sniaii and of great thickness, snid are ox'id
ized f iid pl.-tuisfied so as to prevent tho.
force of the vapor escjipingtlirougli the pores
of tlie metal. Steam could not pass fhro'rrgh
tlie conned ing pipes which are u-ed on this
npparatus, since the bore Is ouly i;!;out the
dintetision if a knitting-needle. '
With this immen-e power at hand one
would naturally fear an cxp'.o-dvvii u,-t
disastrous in its results. But such if is
claiuietl cauntst be the case, since when tha
vapor comes in contact with the atmos
phere, it va-e.s to exand, and instantly
goes back to its: original state, namely siir
m:d water, theretoie, in this regard it is
less dang-.-rous than either gunpowder or
teaui. The Aapor is thinner than air, and
will not cut tile metal in escaping or pass
ing through the throttle valve. It can
not be expnnled or caused to l;:tir.e
by the application of heat ro it. A Kgiit
ed candle has been held at the. month ot a
eouk, and the force ot the air did not even
extinguish the light, and did not have any
offensive odor in tact none was at all pt-r-ij
ceptible. 'l-Ue rapidity - wiVU which this
vapor can In; generated N almost inappre
ciable. " In live peeouds." said Mr. Keely. 1'
" I it'm supply 2.0:K) pound of vapor to the
to tlie square inch, and riiough to rni a ;
train of tcuews from Philadelphia Co New j
York and return.'"' 16 seem innrosr install- h
tineoti.s, fo short is tho -time consumed.
The vapor has a damp, cold feeling. There
is not the least noise perceptible iu its gen
eration .. ii
"Seeing will be believing " in tlii-j mat
ter and the sooner Mr. Keely makes his
first public eshitntinu of ihtt inventioii will j
the pubiie at large aud the world in general 1
come to i-egaul the name of Keely as they
do that of Fulton or Watts. Mr. Keely
says that tlie first public exhibition will lie
upon the Pennsylvania Hailroad. when he;
proposes to take a train lrom tltis city to
New -York and return. He will have the
generator1' stationed at West Philadel
phia fill the "receiver" which accompan
ies tlie engine and take vapor enough to
draw twenty cars to New , York and back.!
The passage of the train wilt be sileut.
'JKiere will be no-ehnler, no escaping steam,
or dropping of coals to set Are to bridges.!
The engine will be smaller than those now
in use. but will be of greater horse power,
lie says -that the generator cau either be
carrio'l on the train or left at a depot, ac
cording to the wishes of the engineer. It
is small and compact and takes op very
little room. : :
