SCIENCE. Possibilities in RIailroadl Speed. When George Stovenson asserted his ability to run pass inger coaches at a speed of twelve to fiftcon miled an hour, secientifti and practical men deemed him fit for a lunatic asylum, but time has shown that trains may be run at a much greater velocity without materially adding to the dangers of railway travel.

Ger. many, one of the most remarkable charac ters ever known in the hietory of the world, or, perhaps, that will ever be known in all times to come, little Christian Heinecken, who could pronounce every word contained in the German language when but nine and one half months old. When one year of age he knew all the leading events in the world's history, and was as familiar with the Pentateuch as most modern professors were eupposed to be with their first text book. At fourteen months he could give a complete history of every book in the Old and New Testament; at two years and six months he could readily answer any question in geography or ancient history. He could enter into conversation with the learned savants in German, French, Latin and Dutch, when ending the third year of his life, which terminated a few months later by his death in 1725, in the fourth year of his age. In the few short weeks allotted to him, little HIenry w...
