Working Drawings of Machi nery -with Movable Farts, A very ingenious idea is being carried out by Messrs. Macmilian & Co. in the shape of a series of drawings, the mov ing parts of which are represented in stiff, thin cardboard, and are so fitted that they show the motion of these parts. The 'Trunk Engine Motion' is the subject of the first drawing published, and in it all the working parts, consist ing of the piston, trunk, connecting rod, crank, eccentrics, slide valve, and its connections are made to move simulta neously on the surface of the sheet. The different parts are all properly jointed by a special joint patened by the inven tor, by Mr. Batchelor. As an example of the durability of diagrams made under this patent, it is stated that they hare been subjected to a test of 2,000 revo lutions without the least injury. The drawing is mounted on thick millboard 22 inches by 27 inches, and a brief ex planation t-f the engine and movements is given on a sheet covering it. ...

We learn however, upon pretty good authority that the fault lies with the South Aus tralian Carrying Company, who have put on the prices. Thus one of our local taddlers.the ofher day had to pay 2s. 6d. for a small bale of leather; weighing 24 pounds, which was sent from. Adelaide through the Carrying Company, while for two rolls weighing 306 lbs. sent by the Government the charge made was only Is. 6d. Other instances have occurred of similar over charges, whioh make it appear as if the Carrying Company were doing their utmost to prevent the true rates on the line from becoming known, so that they may get up an agitation in favour of a return to the old system.'
