Several distinguished engineer and other ecien- tiCiC men attended on Saturday to witnea series of experiment on compreaaed air, at the lata rata- blishment of M. Perrier 6c Co. at Chaillot.

Android'- air locomotive, on all other which have been invented, ia in the application of a resulator by which tho air is sup- l'"d with unniilir g regularity and certainty, and which i under the full control of the engineer, and in the mode of dilating the air by heat, ao a to cauae great economy. In dilating air it ia necrasa ry, for the purpose of locomotion, that il ahnuld be done very rapidly, for otherwise the apeed cannot le kept up. It cannot be dilated in the cy lender or reaerv ir without gre it danger of expl aion ; and by the ordinary process only the ixternil surface ! of tn air immodiatrly expo'ed, the action nf heal is r ipidly dilated, the internal mo!ecule, air being a bad conductor, requiring great time for dilation. M. Andraud go's rid of all thi difficulty by paining the air through a very long spiral tube immersed in boiling lead, and in thi way the whole is dilated in the twelfth part of a second, aud a reservoir of the piston, whereas the same qttnnti'y of air undilated gives only 2,500. Another of the experiments was with an air cannon. Balls were thrown from it which, at disttnee of 150 yard, broke in the roof of building and lodged with great force in wall, although the air was compressed to only 30 stinos pi eri .
