COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
DALLAS, SATURDAY, JUNE 25.
Sulphur In the West Indies,
The New York Standard, a new and
lively daily paper under tbe charge of
John Russell Young, publishes the fol
lowing important paragraph :
Sulphur is a substance which has, if
Dot a fragrant, at least a decided odor,
and is useful both internally and exter
nally. Besides these purely personal
uses, it is largely used in this country
in the manufacture of sulphuric acid,
and for other manufacturing purposes.
As a matter of course, the source of
supply becomes a matter of consequence
'.especially to proprietors of extensive
manufacturing works. Heretofore, the
principal source , of supply has been
Sicily, which island has furnished it
from the extensive deposits left by the
volcanic movements observed there.
AVcare glad, however, to know, and to
be the first to announce, that a source
of supply has been discovered much
nearer home. It is in the island of
Saba, which is one of the Dutch West
Indies, and is situated about one hun
dred and ten miles southeast from St.
Thomas, and forty miles southwest from
&t. Martha's. Like its Italian proto
type, the island is of volcanic origin,
being about eleven miles in circumfer
ence, and at its highest point about
two thousand eight hundred feet above
the sea. Though a Dutch possession,
the language spoken by its two thou
sand inhabitants is chiefly English.
The sulphur deposit referred to was
discovered by an enterprising New
- Yorker, who found himself thereon a
search for health, and, finding indica
tions of sulphur ore, set to work with
pick and shovel, and, with the -help of
some natives, qarried two sloop loads,
which he brought here and submitted
to analysis.! The report of the chem
ists employed is to the effect that, while
the Sicily ores only yield about thirty
per cent, of brimstone for the ore con
sumed, the Saba ore yields an average
of over sixty per cent. Adding- to
this -the fact the island is only about
fifteen hundred miles from New York,
it will be seen that this is an important
discovery, and it need not be wondered
at that steps have already been taken
to secure leases of the best tracts of
island. We understand this has been
done, and that the importation of crude
brimstone will soon be commenced.
Together with the Louisiana sulphur
beds this mine will undoubtedly drive
Sicilian sulphur from our market.
A Speaking Automaton. A Ger
man genius has invented a speaking
machine, which is now on exhibition at
Lcipsic, and is a masterpiece of invent
ive art. It is in imitation of all the
parts of the human organs of speech,
executed in India rubber and wood.
A keyboard, played like that of a pi
ano, puts the parts in motion, while by
a pedal and bellows the required air is
sent through the wind pipe. The key
board has only fourteen keys, represent
ing the sounds of a, o, u, i, e, j, r, w, f,
s, b, g, d, s ; other sounds of the al
phabet are produced by the same move
ment, and the admission ot more or
less air. The sounds of m and 1 are
produced by closing the lips and press
ing the tongue against the roof of the
mouth, etc. The'French nasal sounds
are produced by a separate contrivance.
The laughing, it is said, sounds truly
diabolical, and the crowing of a rooster
