Asylum for Useless Young Men.
(From the Weteetewn (N. Y.) Reformer.)
In every community there is a certain per
centage of useless yoting men, whose ulti
mate condition must excite the sympathy
and consideration of every philanthropist
What 'wi 1 become of them? We' do not put
The question as to their future state, but how
will they round off their earthly existence?
They have no, 'visible means of support; still
they hang on, they vegetate, they keep above
ground. in a certain literal sense; they may,
be said to live, move ,and have a -toeing.
They lounge in Wilms, promenade the streets,
appear at social amusements, play the gallant,
to good-natured radies,.and attend to the ne
cessities of lap-dogs, Their more quiet and
demonstrative life may be described as an
intermittent torpor in which meats, cigars,
:41rinks,jand sleep mark the changes. Their
-existence would be a mystery but for their
bearing relations to other substantial people
kn wn as "pa," "ma," "or better half;"
w are able -to make provision for the
W to and protection of their bodies in the
wa -.of clothing and food. Still, ought these
yo ; .men to be. left to the chances
of parental or domestic affection?
All I are , ncit eqn.ally fortunate.
What shall we do with those whose .
pendence is precarious ? They do not ad
mit of any utilitarian disposition. In am
nibal countries they could be eaten as a sub
stitute for veal ; the bodies would also make
excellent fertilizers for sterile lands ; but the
prejudices of a Christian people Would re
volt at this .solution of the problem. kcal.-
tain number could be employed as lay fig
. urea in shop windows to exhibit clothes on,
- but the tailors might have no confidence in
' them. Most' of theth could color racer
. schaurns, but this business would produce
little revenue. 'What, then ' shall.be done?
The tax now falls upon a few, and it ought
to. be distributed. We propose, therefore, a
State Asylum for . useless young Men. An
• - institution of this kind could be' easily-filled
with those between the ages of eighteen and
thirty, who should be grouped and associa
ted .together, so that the rude jostling and
* friction of the working world would not
disturb their delicate .nerves.
Here they could cultivate their mustaches,
part' their hair behind. and practice attitudes.
In this resort, with a little enforced exercise
to keep their circulation in a healthy state,
with dolls to play with as a compensation
fer. the abSence of ladies' society. these use
,less young men could be supported with
ease and comfort, and all industrious people
would be willing to pay the expense of this
institution, rather-than bear thevainful
licitude in regard to the welfare of these
superfluous members Of society. When
provision has been made by the State for
idiotg, for the insane, poor, aged and crippled,
islit - notastonishing that asylums.have nev
er been erected for a still more helpless class?
Let this philanthropic enterprise be started
at once: : .
The Steam Man.
-• 'We have been to see the Newark Steam
man, and find a decided predominance of
steam over man. We should be loth, in
justiee to our foreign friends, to accept him
as a sample of Newark style. Physically,
he is grand, gloomy, and peculiar to the
last degree. The iron cast of his cast-iron
features imparts a- look of singular deter
mination to a face which might otherwise
leave an impression of slight deficiency in
mobility. It bears, moreover, the marks r. f
a hard morning's work in the shape of foUr
•strealos, of a strange grimy hue, down its
broad brow, which realize our conception of
Pittsburgh perspiration. Hiss steam wash
basin and steam towel-axe probably at New
ark for. repairs. , The chestis wonderfully
full and deep, as Ars. ratitchest ought to be,
• and covered with . a` itylfsh'•fate — of superior
--„ferrnginous ctiksifixere, which our patriotism
forbids us to call aTi.English shooting jacket,
and:which we 'suppose must be an American
steaming jacket, The rear collar button of
the shirt band, we noticed, was very high
in the neck, and, bs- a very ingenious com
bination acts as a steam guage. But by far
his,most remarkable article of apparel is his
hat., It is a stove-pipe hat, as no one of any
-style need be told. On the street it is worn
quite plain, with only the usual ventilator,
like other good hats. But our friend has a
queer habit of smoking through this hat, as
other . irezitlenien .of aecomplishments one
degree lower do through their noses, in
which he takes great pleasure, and which,
to be candid, is known to his selecter friends
to have become -an inveterate and chronic
affection. like opium-eating or impecuniosi
ty.. Some old-maidish insurance company
or other, which has an interest in the premi
ses No. 538 Broadway, or, for all 'we kLow
lets his lodgings—why should not a steam
lodger have an incorporated landladylvoli
jeeted to this smoking . in the house. So
ourffriend, after oscillating his engines over
the question awhile, decided to conform,
and has had a very curiouslittaclunent fitted
- to his hat which makes certainly the greatest
stove pipe in" the world, and shows singular
method in the madness of • his steam batter.
As now constructed, the stove-pipe-hat, or
hat-itovepipe, runs about thirty feet along
the ceiling, comes down, and connects with
a hoary stove at the other side of the room,
disappearing finally through a hole in the
'wall. - It will be observed that we have not
mentioned„a certain integument peculiar
-to gentlemen those blessed with superior
spouses excepted. We mightplead that the
article in question is by nature unmentiona
ble; but caiador compels the whole truth.
To own up, then, the gentleman from New
ark- gave us audience in a peculiarly grace
ful dishabille that dispensedwith this one
garment. His attendant slave—termed in
`liewark, bysome strange freak, his inven
tor—assures us,, however, that this fatigue
uniform is the garb only of hiS -intimate
privacy, and that he would on no account
appear abroad without his sheet-iron neither
Petroleum for Fuel.
A Boston letter of thel7th reports another
highly successful trial of petroleum as fuel
for generating steam Under marine boilers:
The long-promised trial of the liquid-fuel
burning steamer Island City took place down
our harbor on Saturday last, and was, ac
cording to the published accounts in the
newspapers, a complete success. The most
favorable experiment shown wtth oil for fuel
on the Government steamer Palos last sum
mer was , eclipsed by the demonstration made
'on the Island - City. ;But this published re.
ports of the last experiment fad to state that
it was made under some disadvantages. The
engines, machinery anti fuel apparatus were
all fresh from the shop, and had not teen
used; consequently everything was stiff, and
Col. Foos did not feel Justified - crowding
on either his steam or flame. He also used

ed in, completing the combustion of the
general elements the retorts. Had ~ all
this been otherwise, a still greater triumph
would have hcen achieved. But the inven
tor, perhaps, is willing to rest on the laurels
..he s has already earned. The 'trip fairly de

Dynamite or.Glant POwder.
The disciiirery of nitro-glycerine furni
ed to us a new explosive substance far more
powerful than gunpowder, and imitable for
engineering purposes -under many condi,
tions where the latter could not be used. Its
use is, however, attended with the greatest
danger, some of the most terrible accidents
on record having been caused by it. Among
these may be mentioned the destruction at
Aspinwall, the explosion in the office of
Wells, Fargo & Co., at San Francisco , at
Bergen Point, in the Hooe tunnel, in front l
of a hotel in New'*York, etc. In a recent
article we announced the discovery of anew
explosive by . Prof. Nobel, of Hamburg, (the
same chemist who brought 'nitro-glycerine
to our notice?, called Dynamite or Giant
powder. This, instead cif being an oily
liquid„ liable to leak,from the vessel in which
it is confined, and produce a spontaneously,
inflammable mixture with rags, shavings
and other packing material, is a dry flaccu
lent, reddish-brown powder, like snuff or
cayenne pepper;' compressible into flakes be
tween the fingers and moist to the touch..
In a loose, non-eompressed condition, it
does not explode, but burns slowly, with
but little smoke and no sniell. For blasting
rocks it is much superior to gun powder,
much less drilling being necessary, and it is
especially adapted for working in closed
mines or tunnels, as it leaves no smoke, and
does not discolor the rock. It is claimed
that there is much less danger in transport
ing and handling it than is the. case with
gun powder. A detonating cap is required ,
Late ,California papers contain the results!
ofyccent experiments in dynamite, in that
State, that would. . seem to justify the
clahns' made in its behalf. A hole, three
inches deep, and three-quarters of an inch
in diameter, was drilled in a forty-two
pound shot; a fuse inserted to the bottom,
resting upon the detonating cap, and the
cavity then filled with the powder. On ig
niting the, fuse, the shot was blown to aterag,
A quarter ounce of the powder was laid On-,
the middle of a piece of
.plank, six feet long
and three inches thick, and another board
placed upon it. The explosion shivered the
upper board to fragments and split the plank.
Some powder laid on the surface of a liould
.er of sandstone weighing half a ton broke it
For a thousand other applications the dy
namite is said to be extremely available, as
not only is it vastly more powerful than
- gunpowder, and at least not more danger
ous to handle, but it requires
,so mu& less
drilling or, preparation of the rock for use.
In such works as the Hoosac tunnel, it
would seem especially applicable.
How to Communicate Evil Tidings.
When you are the messenger of very
painful tidings, what is the best method ?
After much reflection, I must conclude that
the shortest and simplest way of communi
~the facts is the best. Here nature
and pinhoophy meet; here our last experi
ence confirms our first practice. You have
to impart to an affectionate mother the death
of her son who was drowned at sea. How
shall ithe done ? Nature teaches" ' art can
add nothing more : " 0 lady, Ihaye sad
news to impart; your son, on such a day,
fell from tha, yard and. was drowned. lie
has left us." This is the way in which they
communicated things of old. So Homer
(Iliad, xviii' 20. 21), when the tidings are.
-brought to/Achilles of Patroclus' death :
- Patroclu is down; they are fighting
aroundliis naked corpse, and his armor is
held by the plume-waving Heetor." A
striking instance is found in British history.
When Gen. Burgoyne surrendered at
Saratoga, the rumor (very indefi
nite) one morning had reached
the House of Commons. Every one was
alert to hear, when Lord North arose slow
ly in his place,. and.with a solemn voice said:
"General Burgoyne and his whole army are
prisoners to the Americans;" and a dead si
lence of several minutes followed. How
different is this from the shuffling and equiv
ocations in which, in modern times, we dis
guise our defeats! The same method is
I sanctioned in the Bible. , 'When Eli sat
trembling for the ark of God, he heard the
dreadful news: "And the messenger an
swered and said, Israel is fled before the
Philistines; and there liath been a great
slaughter among the people; and thy two
sons, Hophni and Phinehas, are - dead; and
the ark of God is taken." (Sam. iv. 17.)
What condensed language; and every word
laden with sorrow. No wonder that the
effect followed: "And it came topass when
he made mention of the ark of God, that he
fell from off the seat backward by the side
of the gate, and his neck brake, and he died;
for he was an old man and heavy; and he
lead judged Israel forty years."—Dr. With
Anecdote of Sherman.
When General Sherman was at Atlanta
preparing fnr his famous "march to the sea"
an order was promulgated directing all cid
zens to leave Atlanta(North or South) with
in twelve days. The day of its issue a gen
tleman entered Sherman's headquarters and
inquired for the General. The latter answer
ed very prompfly, "I am General Sherman."
The colloquy was very nearly as follow :
- Citizen—General, I am a. Northern man,
from the State of Connecticut; have been
living at Atlanta nearly six yeas; have ac
cumulated considerable property here, and
as I see you have ordered all citizens to
leave within twelve days, I came to, see if
you would make an exception in my case.
I fear. if I leave, my property will be de
General Sherman—What kind of proper

an exception in your case.

dwellings, a plantation two miles out o f
town, and a foundry.

General Sherman—You have been mak

have you? And you still claim favoi on
account of being a Northern man! Yes,
sir, I will make an exception in your
your ease. you shall go. South to-morrow, at
sunrise. 'Adjutant, see that tills order is
carried out. Orderly, show this man tbe
Citizen—But, General, can't I go North?

—Prof. (]amjee, of London, in an ad

so; but, as Mr. Bonner recently, exposed ; the
ignorance of the professor regarding di
