A TROTTING MATCH, in harness, came off on Sat
urday, between two nags owned by gentlemen of this
city. It was a private affair, sad but few personslinew
it was to take place—hut those who did attend
..inf*. have had no very• favorable opinion of the sport,
as we understand it took rhe winning horse 4 minutes
to dos in*. Such time can scarcely be called trotting.

long enough in use to test its merits fully, he has no
hesitation in saying that it is one of the most valuable
improvements that has enme - to his notice. The effects
produced are: a great diminution in friction; a saving
in oil—one half or more: ad economy in the original
construction, the brasses being much - lighter, a saving
in repair, the metal lasting longertual being replaced at
a less cost; and a saving in fuel, consequent upon di
minished friction."
The metal has also been int imluced with great ad
vantage, in lining carriage and wagon boxes, fur which
it is well adapted.
It is also, amongst many others, strongly :Teo:amen.

_1 excellent invention for the reduction of friction in
machinery has at length been introduced in our city.—
It consists of alined box, suitable for all revolving and
sliding motions in the various kinds of machinery ,where
great weight or speed are applied; these boxes reduce
friction in a remarkable degree, requirinr , but little oil,
and arc warranted entirely free from 'the objections
found with those now in use.
These lined boxes have been introduced in many of
the Eastern Rail Roads, and in various manufacturing
establishments in that section of country, to which the
limits of an advertisement will not allow us to refcr,and
nearly thirty well known superintendents,engineers,ma
chinists and engine builders hi the eastcertify that, "in
the use of these boxes, friction is reduced in a remark
able degree; oil is required only in small quantities, and
the wear is hardly perceptible, during a period in which
a hard metal box of the same thickness would be worn
out; journals running in these boxes attain a smoother
surface than they have seen on those which have been
run in any other box." They also certify "that thepa
tentee of this improvement has received the highest a
ward of the Massachusetts Charitable Mechanic's Asso
ciation, for specimens of these boxes, (some of which
had been run on the crank of a locomotive engine more
than thirty thousand miles,) at the fair of the Institu
tion, held in Boston in September and October,lB 41."
The Franklin Institute, Philadelphia, also awarded
Mr. Babbitt the premium for the improvement in box
es, under the Scott Legacy, which confines such awards
to vete and useful improvements.
The Committee on naval affairs reported strongly in
its favor, in consequence of which the right to use it wa.;
purchased by the Government for $9.0,600. The com
mittee refer to, and make a part of their report the let
