The Japanese porcelain is remarkable. A late

believe the droppiug of a piece of sugar would

them an extraordinary elasticity."

A very ingenious apparatus has been devised
to facilitate the progress of tho Piedmontese
railroads, in which tunnels have been cut under
mountains The excavatinjr machine cuts the
channels in the rock, by means of several series
of chisels placed one beside the other, iu straight
lines; these lines of cutting are so arranged as
to be capable of a slight motion iu the direction
of the grooves after every stroke ; the object of
tins is to bring tue cinssels to bear upon alutho
spaces lying between the several cutting tools
situated in the same line, so as to produce not a
succession of holes, but a continuous channel
similar to a very wide saw-cut. This lateral
shifting of the lines of chisels, which takes place
alternately from right to left, and from left to
right, is caused by a corresponding motion given
to the frames in which they are fixed. Each
chisel is driven against the rock by a spiral
spring coiled round it. This spring, driving the
chisel forcibly against the rock, obliges it to act
efficaciously, notwithstanding the slight inequal
ities at the bottom of the channel, arising from
a want of uniformity in the resistance of the
stone. When the machine is - iu operation, the
several lines of chisels are all drawn back simul
taneously, by means of a species of cam or mo
vable bar. The apparatus is arranged so ag to
enable each chisel to strike 150 blows in a min
ute. The machine at the same time sets in mo
tion a pump, which forces a constant supply of
water into a reservoir, the upper part of which
is filled with compressed air. By this means
tho water is driven out in jets, through small
pipes placed between the chisels, and is thus
made to play upon the grooves, where it per
forms the double office of preventing the cutting
instruments from becoming heated, and remo
ving the dust and broken stones which would
otherwise accumulate in the grooves, and there
by prevent the effectual operation of the excavator.
