GENERAL GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 August 1856

GENERAL GOSSIP. * * The new patent law provides that patents shall be granted for five years, and that at the expiration of that time, and upon payment of one hundred dollars, the commissioner of patents shall extend any patent for the term of fifteen years— making twenty years in all, or one year less than the present term and extension. Patents now in existence are to be placet! on an equality with patents to be granted under the new law. Within the first term of five years, patentees will have an ample opportunity to ascertain the value of their invention, and judging from the past, a very small fraction will be deemed worthy of a renewal of the jKttent. Upon application to have a patent confirmed, and the payment of the fee, the commissioner is to give public notice to all persons opposed to snch confirmation to appear and make it known. * * The " Balance Dock" is a new nnd ingenious contrivance by which vessels of the largest class can be raised out of the water.

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 August 1856

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. The art of puddling iron, that is, of converting iron into wrought iron in rcverbatory furnaces, was discovered in England by Henry Cort, iv 1783 —a "tUscovery which inaugurated a now era in the iron business. The reducing of rough masses thus obtained, into finished bars by means of grooved rolllers speedily followed ; and" the results of this single invention have been marvellous. Thus the exports of British wrought iron have increased from four hundred and twentv-scven tons in 1781,t0 88d,2db tons in 1854. In 1782, the total make of British hammered iron, bar. did not amount to ten thousand tons • while in 1853 the make of paddled and rolled iron was very little short of three millions and the whole saving to the country fifteen hundred millions of dollars. A witty dri'ooist, on a cold night last winter, was awakened by a terrible rapping at the door. Going down he found a poor devil who wanted to purchase a dose of salts. The shop was entered, the dose prepa...

That same evening, as the boys at tbe grammar school were amusing themselves in the play-ground, the sound of a flute was heard—Dick was one of the first to notice it, for he had heard the air before. " Is that Lacon playing ?" inquired Mark Raymond. One of the lads pointed to the supposed musician, busily engaged at a game of ball. " Who can it be '! There was a cry of " the dancers—the mountebanks," followed by a general rush to the large iron gates which opened from the playground to the green lane which skirted it. Dick went with the rest, and recognized, to his astonishment, Sam und his sister dancing to the music. His first impulse was to retreat amongst his companions, to aroiu being recognized. The feeling was but a momentary one; his generous nature quickly rejected it. Advancing boldly to the front of the gate, which Mark, by a process known only to t...

The Thracians menaced the thunder cloud wilh arrows, and attempted to combat tin? dnad artillery of Heaven. Hy tho Romans, persons killid by lightning were supiHised to have called down upon themselves the s|iecial indignation of the gods, and were buried in unfrequented places, lest the ashes of others should be polluted by tlicir presence, or sometimes their remains were lojfcroi to lie. where they fell, without receiving any interment whatever. Kvcn a spot of ground struck by lightning was hedged in and avoided, under tne belief that Jupiter hail either set upon it the mark of his displeasure, or appropriated it as sacred to himself.

Curious Medical Case. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 August 1856

All the medical practitioners he consulted attributed it to lead in the water he drank, or in the liquids, or food ; all those were tested, but no lead found. At last, by some chance, be consulted a Herman physician, who, after asking a great many questions and closely examining his gums, suddenly inquired if he took snuff. » Yes," replied the clergyman. " Show it me," said the (jerman and he emptied the snuff into a paper, took it home with him, tested it, and found a quantity ol prepared lead in the powder : he went to the shop where the snuff had been purchased, bought some, tested it, aud iouud it similarly adulterated.

A Singular Fascination. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 24 August 1856

A Singular Fascination. An English paper relates the following unaccountable occurrence: One of the most singular instances in connection with material things, exists in the case of a young man who, not very long ago, visited a large iron manufactory, lie stood opposite a large hnmmer and watched with great interest its perfectly regular strokes. At first, it was beating immense lumps of crimson metal into thin, black sheets; but the supply becoming exhausted, at last it only descended on the polished anvil. Still, the young man gazed intently on its motion ; then he followed its strokes with a corresponding motion of his head ; then his left arm moved to the same tune ; and finally, be deliberately placed his fist upon the anvil, and in a second it was smitten to a jelly. Tbe only explanation he could afford was that he felt an impulse to do it; that he knew he should be disabled ; that he saw all the consequences in a misty kind of manner ; but lhat he still felt the power within,...
