JN O. 29 called bed plates. They are now ready for what is terined the" transferring operatiorj The transferring presses ard iiiaeiiines sf contrived by a combination of levers and other mechanical appliances, as to obtain the greatest possible pressure upon a small space. A hardened steel bed plate, containing an engraving, is placed upon the platform of oneof these presses; and a roller of soft steel, generally about two inches and a half in diameter,- is made to roll backward and forward ov5r its surface several times, under aii enormous pressure. By this ope • ration an exact reverse of-the vignette on the bed plate is obtained, every minute in dented line of the engraving being represented by a corresponding raised line oh the surface of the roller. This roller; after being hardened, is called a die, and the reversed engraving upon its surface, by asimilar process to the one above. In this way perfect fac similes of the original vignette can be multiplied to infinitude,...

Peculiar Appkication of Gi.ass.—It is a well known fact that the stpno surfaces of buildings, by being exposed to the action of the atmosphere, become liable to disintegration from various causes. Moisture is absorbed into their pores. The tendency of their"particles to separate, in consequence of expansion and contraction, produced by alternation of temperature, is thus increased Sulphurous acid is always present in tho atmosphere of coal burning cities, and cannot but corrode particular vanities of stono. As a preventive of destruction, whether arising from physical or chemical causos.it has been proposed to saturate the surface of the stones with a solution of water glass. It is a familiar.phenomenon, that the affinity of silica for alkali is so feeble, that it may be so separated from this base by the weakest acids, even by carbonic acid. According to the expectation of those who reccommend the silification of stone, the carbonic acid of the atmosphere will set the silica fr...

A number of blank cards are placed in-the upper part, of the machine; a handle is turned,'and forthwith the cards make their appearance, one by one, at the bottom of the machine—printed from: an adopted form, number from I to 2000, or more, consecutively, and leaving a registry as they quit the machine. This is dono at the rata of 5000 per hour. The printing may bo done in one or two colors, and may be quickly adjusted to any desired form. All this is effected by a machine comprised within tho limits of twelve inches long, nine wide and eight high.

Bg^" . . Seely, representative delegate from Centre county, in the late Democratic State Convention, voted against a resolution •endorsing the administration of William F. Packer, the Democratic Governor of Penn'a. In the first place the honest Democracy of Centre county would like to know where Mr. Samuel Sylvester Seely received his credentials as. a delegate, and what Gov. Packer has done to be unwsrthy of his endorsement. He has been a faithful Executive thus far, and .thus far the people of Pennsylvania have .been satisfied with his admin-. iistrafion. ButWm.S1. SPacker, like a Pennsylvania^ and a freeman, refused to endorse fthe administration of James Buchanan, and for this refusal he has been struck down, at least so far as the opinion of this Convention ¦is concerned, and particularly the representative of the Democracy of-Centre county, S. S. Seely. Truly the impudence and ignorance of this man is refreshing. At home jie allows his name to be used as editor of a Democr...

Heretofore this institution enjoyed a high reputation as a Seminary for girls, but it is the intention of the present principal to make it a school for both boys and girls.— His well known character for piety, high literary attainments, and experience as a tutor, cannot fail to attract a large number of students of both sexes to his school. The location of the school is in a healthy, moral .rjeighborhood—and from all we- know of the Principal and his assistants, we cheerfully . recommend it to those having sons and .daughters whom they desire to educate.

How Parties are Governed. The proceedings of what is called the late Democratic Convention shows conclusively how political parties are governed, at least how the Democratic party is controlled in Pennsylvania. If we are to judge the delegates composing that body, by the man who claimed to represent Centre county, the convention could scarcely be called an assemblage of men representing the masses of the Democratic party, and therefore its actions should be regarded as a nulity-. The man who represented this county, was not chosen by the party, nor was he selected by a. quorum of the Democratic County Commit tee. Almost sclf-eoristituted,'he represented only a small portion of that party, and when thehor.est masses read the proceedings of this convention, they will not be astonished a...

jjj@»The RoftsmciisJournal, (Clearfield) says that the water in the Susquehanna has been at an excellent rafting stage, and bur lumbermen have been making good use of it. The hulk of the square timber, boards, shingles, &c, has passed down the stream' and by this time "tlie red shirts" are'doubtless becoming plenty in Lock Haven, Middletown, Marietta, and other places alo ig the river. Our-former impressions regarding the quantity of lumber that will reach market were nearly correct. From all the information we can gather,- we are satisfied that not over two thirds the usual quantity will be taken down. This is owing in a great measure to the comparitivc scarcity of snow during the past winter. The tendency of this falling off in the supply will be to increase prices to remunerative rates. It is reported that a "few sales were made at Lock Haven at 7 arid 8 cents for pine timber. -^_ «--» •«-¦» 1—
