John Kelly net Dead.
The Asc f Progress.
The statement that glass can be
so tempered by what is known as
the Siemens process that it can be
used for the ties of railways, is
-very easily capable of verification;
and the incredulous public would
much prefer to read the details, of
the experiment actually demon
strating the fact. 1 f glass can be
made to take the place of wood
for railway ties, the usefulness of
that beautiful crystalline substance
for a thousand other equally im
portant and more noble purposes
is at once established. "Temper
ed f lass," we are told, '-can be ob--tained
in great pieces, gifted with
power of resistance of which its
specific lightness, compared with
heavy metals, would not give the
least presumption. It can now be
-used, notably in carpentry, for
posts, joists, ties and bnttreses. It
combines the advawtages of
strength and of incorruptibility in
contact with all atmospheric agen
cies, as well as with all chemical
factors, and, consequently, is of
perpetual duration." And then,
yre arc further assured that it is
comparatively very cheap, being
now, at the outset, no more ex-
pensire than the same weight of
iron; and, as a matter ol course,
as the demand increases there will
be a decline in the price, until it
-will not be long until it will be as
cheap as wood.
If this should be the case, there is
no reason why its use should not
be extended almost without limit.
AVe may expect, then, that the
house and household utensils of
the future will be material modifi
cations of the present style infi
nitely more curable, cleanly and
beautiful. House-painting and
graining will take its place among
the outworn arts. The roof and
the various floors might be made
of glass, and even the walls might
be made of this material double
plates securing a dead-air space of
warmth in winter, and easily
changed to secure coolness in sum
mer by converting the enclosed
space into a flue for the heated
air currents. VTe should then
bave buildings which, in the mat
ter of lightning, would Ife perfec
tion. Such walls -would be trans
lucent; while they would admit
the passage of light, they would
not permit objects to be visible
through them, so that while they
would have all the advantages of
being perfectly lighted they
-would be impervious to imperti
Men could then not only live in
glass houses, but might throw
stones without fear of having their
own domiciles shivered to atoms
in return. For foundation walls
and basement floors nothing more
fitting can be conceived, exciuding
Hampness, mould and rust; abol
ishing rats, mice, cockroaches, and
every species of iusects so an
novincr to careful housewives.
But even if this tempered glass
should not come into use for the
construction of entire buildings, it
could be made to play an im
portant part in the matter of
decoration. As is known, this
substance can be colored to any
shade of any hue; and in this vari
. gated form its ornamental uses
would attortt tne arcnuecturai an
ist a limitless field. For arches,
for interior columns, panels, window-frames,
mautels, and all that sort of finish,
It would be capable of infinite
diversity in form, color and artistic
effort. And then, it is probable
.ahat many f the projecting feat
ures ef the exterior of a building,
torches, bav-windows, balconies,
etc.; might be made of glass of
any desired color, which, in the
sun, would produce all sorts of
changing iridescent effects and
give to a residence all the appear
ance of a latry palace, x nese ana
thousand other improvements in
-ihe character of household furni
ture and utensils come within the
ireach of the new discovery, if it
jproves to be all that is promised.
John Kelly, notwithstanding his
late defeat, does not seem to be so
completely down as his democrat
ic opponents hoped. He is still
the central figure of New York
politics, and judging by the New
York papers there is but little
interest there except his possible
action in the future. There is a
latent conviction that he is not
dead but sleeping, and his con
querors are watching his move
ments with ill-disguised uneasi
ness. Kelly is lum aware uiai a
desperate attempt will be made to
dethrone him in Tammany hall,
for as lonr as he is the leader of
that organization he is a foe to
be feared. With characterise
promptness he is turning his atten
tion to maintaining his ascendency
in Tammany, and is wielding his
present power there to secure the
election of a proper general com
mittee for the ensuing year. The
meetings of Tammany committee
of organization are lively assem
blages just at present, owingto the
pointed manner in which Kelly and
his friends animadvert on the
motives and characters of those
who are suspected of a want of
faithfulness to him in his fallen
fortunes. The chief inference de
dticiblc from the debatas of these
meetings is that every man who
opposes Kelly is a thief, and every
man who does not oppose him is
something worse; but in the end
the Kelly sentiment prevails, and
a number of recent Tammanyites
are nlaced under the ban of the
chiefs displeasure. There will be
consternation among the New
York democrac' if Kelly should
happen to win.

Gen. Grants article upon Ameri
can Destiny, published in the
Chicago Tribune of the 11th, is a
wowderful document. Here is one
paragraph of it:
Tho United States has entered, as it
were, spontaneously upon a career of
development almost unparalleled iu
the history of the world. By the
rrowth of the states alone the Pacific
coast, by tne erection of the trans
continental lines of railway, by the
occupation of new lands, by the open
ing of new mines, by the increasing
mechanics and manufacturing enter
prises, by the introduction of her pro
ducts on an amazing scale into the
commerce of the world, by her de
votion to a system f finance which
requires incessant industry among all
classes of her people, and the cheap
est possible means of intercourse and
transportation the United States has
given new and deeper importance to
every method by which industry can
be advanced and commerce can be
promoted. It should not be forgotten
that the states of North and South
America lvimr on the Pacific, furnish
in large abundance those commodities
which are constantly supplied with
markets in almost every country in
Europe. The guano and nitre trade
is immense. From the ports of Chili
nearly 400,000 tons of freight are ship
wed eastward annually. More than a
million tons of grain are shipped each
year from the Pacific states and terri
tories. There is no doubt that more
than 4,000,000 tons of merchandise
find their waj from these regions to
the east, and require water communi
cation in order that they may bo ship
ped economically and profitably. And
this is merchandise to which rail
way transportation across the conti
nent is wholly inapplicable. The
great wheat crops of California and
Oregon, for instance, find their way
to Liverpool, around Cape Horn, at a
freight rate of 50 cents per bushel, a
rate which would not carry it by rail
half way to Bston or New York or
Philadelphia to be there shipped to

Referrinff to the election of Gen.
John F. Miller as United States
senator for California, the Church
man says: It is as much a compli
ment to the public seHtiment of
the state, as to the gentleman him
self. No public man in the state
or nation, enjoys a wore stainless
reputation, or a higher character
for intecrritv. If we excent the
Presidency, there is no position so
important and influential, or which
affords such a thoatre for the ex
ercise of great abilities. Gen.
Miller has hitherto been known
chiefly for the boldness, sagacity,
and activity displayed in his mili
tary career; and for foresight, en
ergy, and success, in business en-
terprizes. Ho now occupies a po
sition which will give scope to the
broad statesmanship and oratorial
powers, whick we predict, lie will
be found to possess in a yery emi
