TUE SQUAtI\G OFGTIECIRCCE.-- A Liver pool c'orrespondent of thoe Spectator, .writes :' I 'do not know whether I am in.place in ask= ing for asnook ihn yourvaluablo journal for the squaring of the circle I .conceive it to be simply this. If you takea silver wire twelve inches and a quarter long, the quarter being allowved to unite the two ends, you have a cir cular wire exactly twelve inches; and if this wireis made .to form the true square, each. of its sides will be equialto three inches;and the: area equal to nine square iiches.>Nowv if the same wire is allowed to assume the true circle, it is evident that the. area of the circle: will be the same asit was in the square. For iistance; if a wall be built around a-city and it is found to betwelive miles round, the area of-that city is nine square miles. Therefore the square of any circle is equal to: threee-fourths of the length of its own circumference." 1uMPoRTANT.-Cardinal Patrizzi, the Papal legate to .Paris, :has. brought wi...

RAILWAYS. III. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 4 October 1856
R A I L W A Y S . &nbsp; WHEN the Legislature determined that the interests of this country would be best pro- moted by confiding the construation of rail- &nbsp; ways to a department of the Government, the decision was very generally approved of, but it was also as unanimously conceded that in carrying out that object the proceedings of those entrusted with duties of no ordinary responsibility should be vigilantly scrutinised. During the present political interregnum that duty can only be performed through the Press; and we have taken considerable pains to obtain from the best source the information which the public are entitled to have placed before them. &nbsp; One of the first and most important fea- tures which the prosecution of railway enter- prise under Government control has evolved relates to the means by which the importa- tion of the necessary material from Britain will be regulated. It will be obvious that enormous importations of plant rolling s...
