THE EAGLE HAY PRESS. The above is a correct representation of this remarkable Eagle Hay Press, THE INVENTION OF J. A. McGILLIVRAL, OF ILLINOIS, TO WHOM LETTERS PATENT WERE ISSUED JANUARY 10TH, 1865, AND JULY 24TIJ, 18(>6. Several years were devoted by the patentee to the perfection of this powerful press, and its unprecedented sale in the East induces the proprietors to introduce it into California and the Pacific States. All who have seen or used these Presses pronounce them superior to anything used heretofore. The power is applied by means of two levers, and it will be seen the power increases in ratio to the resistance; as the levers approach a horizontal position the power can scarcely be estimated. It is not only a powerful Press, but has the advantage of being Cheap, and also Simple, therefore not liable to get out of order. Three men with one horse can bale from Ten to Fifteen Tons per Day, each bale welshing 300 to 300 lbs. It obviates all necessity by beating th...

Our Illustration. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 6 May 1871

Our Illustration. In our issues of April 22d and 29th, we endeavored to give such information in regard to silkworms and their management, as should enable amateurs readily to experimont in this pleasant culture, and thus aid to develop an industry which promises to become one of vast importance to California. The progressive daily development of the egg is also shown from the time it is first brought into a warm atmosphere for hatching, until the worm makes its appear- j anco. The time thus occupied is about six days, more or less accelerated or retarded, according to the temperature employed. It will be found interesting, and important also, to watch with a small magnifying! glass, the gradual change in the color and I To-Jay we supplement that information with the accompanying accurate and lifesize representations of the silkworm, from the laying of the egg until it emerges from the caterpillar life, through the chrysalis to the moth that lays the egg—omitting only the 2d and Bd,...

The Medical Convention. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 6 May 1871

The Medical Convention. We are glad to see so much interest evinced in the meeting of the physicians in our city. Invitations from individuals and from associations, to eat, drink and be merry, to walk and ride, to visit and be visited, have been extended hospitably and freely. We think that our eastern friends ■will carry back pleasant memories of our coast. The convention is really a most important one. The American Association has existed now for many years and has attained the highest position and drawn into its ranks the best of medical talent. We are glad to see the physicians of the coast enjoying ft high position among their brethren; it redounds to our general credit. Our city is now, filled with medical men. At the hotels, on the streets, in the places of business, one sees our medical visitors, and is moderately safe in addressing any stranger with the title of doctor. Between two and three hundred are reported in attendance at the Convention. Of course a large number com...

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 6 May 1871

MECHANICAL PROGRESS. Improved Endless Screw. — Mr. Wm. Goodwin, of New Jersey, has devised a form of the wheel and screw which, unlike the usual form, changes a low velocity into a high one with very little friction. In the usual form, the loss of power is so great, that the screw is generally used to move the wheel, and not the wheel to move the screw; and the arrangement is employed where it is desired to combine great stability in one direction with perfect ease of motion in the other, —as, for example, the steering apparatus of ships. The Technologist for April gives the inventor's description as follows:—"The threads and tooth of the wheel and screw, as ordinarly constructed, have a bearing, both while entering into gear, or mash, and while disengaging; while in the new gear, the threads and teeth do not come to a bearing until the teeth of the wheel have entered into mash, to the bottom of the grove of the screw. Hence, when the bearing commences, the teeth commence to disenga...

Scientific Progress. [Newspaper Article] — Pacific Rural Press — 6 May 1871

Scientific Progress. Rev. H. Hiohxor Ahiwhbed.—Prof. Mortou notices, in tho Journal of (he Franklin Institute, the papers in the Chemical News by Rev. Mr. Highton upon tho maximum of power in the galvanic battery. After remarking that tho aforesaid gentleman maintains in fact tho possibility of perpetual motion, or tho development of power without a corresponding expendditure of force, Prof. M. says: "Tho theory of the daring author is briefly this: A battery current, passed through a given electro-magnet, will lift a given weight. If, now, we double the cross section of the wire of the said electro-magnet, and also its length, the resistance of the circuit remaining the same as before, the current developed by the battery and the consumption of zinc will remain as before, and yet the lifting power of the magnet will bo doubled. Or. in place of increasing the size and length of wire, several similar electro-magnets may be so introduced in the circuit as to produce the same effect. S...
