7 September 4 TEXASMT1 ON AJL ? It EG I SITE R. 31i . v .-.-- .. Magnetic Telegraphs The Baltimore Republican says : "By an experiment whicli has been tried it was proven that Morse's electro- magnetic telegraph will make characters faster than a printer can set type. A com- munication embraced in 273 characters was made in five minutes which was when it is considered that many of the characters stood for whole words an ex- traordinary rapid mode of conveying itelli- getice. The 273 characters were equal to 400 types including spaces all made in five minutes about as fast again as a prin- ter could ordinarily set typer This shows at once the little benefit that could be de- rived from a telegraph that would print the letters instead of making the characters even were such a telegraph practicable." Ot a later invention the editor of the N. Y. Commercial Advertiser says: "Our readers were informed the other day that we had seen the work of this new instrument a slip of paper having on...
