Some forty years ago, the then Em
peror of China had in his suite a very
intelligent, and according to the Chi
nese standard of beauty, a very hand
some young Mandarin. An attachment
sprang up between the Mandarin, who
was known as Tystang Beium, and a
very near female relative of his Majesty,
the Emperor. The attachment was dis
covered, and being forbidden by the
laws of China, Tystang ]3eium was con
demned to die. He, however, managed
to wake his escape, and with his charm
er succeeded in eluding pursuit. A sou
was born to Tystang Beim, who was
called Trykena Beium. In the course
of time, the' youth grew up, and follow
ing the example of his sire, became also
enamored. But in this case the fair
lady was one of the lowest domestics on
the estate. Beium the elder Beverly
whipped Beium the younger, and sent
the damsel away, at least she was,never
heard of after. Beium the younger was
much incensed at the doings of his
parent, and took flight for Shanghea.—
From Shanghea the.outhful scion work
ed his passage to San Francisco ; from
thence he found his way to New Arork,
and engaged in the usual avocation of
his nation—cigar selling. Becoming
posseised of some American dollars, he
'looked about him for a chance to con
sole him for the loss of his Chinese
beauty. He cast his eyes about and
settled them upon a buxom WidoW from
the Emerald Isle. She proved willing,
and on Sunday the representatives of
two widely different civilizations were
united. After, the marriage a grand
time took place at the residence of the
bride, where the friends of both parties
fraternize till the " wee stria' hours vont

to the station of one of our railroads the
other evening, and finding the best car
riage full, said, in a loud tone, "Why
this carriage isn't going !" Of course
these words caused a general stampede,
a nd Waggs took the best seat. The
train soon moved off. In the midst of
the indignation; the wag'was questioned;
—"You said this carriage was'nt going?"
it was'nt then," replied Waggs,
"but it is now."
SILVERING Ivoay.—lmmerse a small
slip of ivory in a weak solution of nitrate
of silver, and let it remain until the
solution has given it a deep yellow color
then take it out and immerse it in a
tumbler of clear water, and expose in
the water to the rays of the sun. In
about three hours the ivory acquires a
black color ; but the black surface on
being rubbed, soon becomes changed to
a •brilliant - silver.

Explanation of War Terms.
As a people, we have been so long in
a state of peace with all the world, that
the technical terms of war are little
understood. We have found ourselves
snmewhat at a loss in this respect, as we
have read of regiments, brigades, bat
talions, squadrons, platoons ; of generals,
lieutenant generals, major generals, bri
gadier generals, colonels, adjutants,
lieutenants; of howitzers, mortars, col
umbaids, paixhans, caronades, d ahl
greens ; of shell, grape, canister, bombs,
grenades ; and of the hundreds of other
terms of war. It occurs to us that a
brief plain explanation of some of these
terms will be interesting and useful to
our young readers, and aid them in un
derstanding the newspaper accounts
daily perused. We will first describe
some of the implements of war:
Gunpowder.—With this all are some
what acquainted. It is a condensed
compound which, on the application of
heat, springs into a large volume of gas
(or kind of air) with great power. _Half
a gill of posfder will suddenly produce
gas enough to till a barrel, or 2000 half
gills. Powder in very fine grains burns
so fast and expands so quickly as to
burst a cast iron gun ; hence very coarse
powder is used for canon and large guns.
Gunpowder is a mixture of about six
ounces of niter (saltpeter) with 1 ounce
of sulphur, and one' ounce of charcoal.
The charcoal used, is made of small
willows carefully burned or heated in
close vessels. The niter, sulphur, and
charcoal, are ground separately, then
together moist, and afterward pressed
into solid cakes and dried. These cakes
are broken into small fragments, which
are put into cylinders and kept revolving
until the sharp corners are worn off and
the surface of the grains is polished,
when they are passed through sieves to
assort the coarse and fine grains—the
fine being used for small guns, and the
large for cannons, for blasting rocks,
etc. The fine dust, if packed in a solid
mass so that the flame can not spread
easily through it, burns slowly upon one
side, and is msed for fuses in bomb shells
and in blasting, for fire-works, etc.
Percussion Powder is composed of
materials which are set on fire by the
simple friction of a blow. The first guns
used, were fired with a lighted 'match.—
Then a flint was arranged to strike off
small bits of steel from a pan cover.—
These bits of steel, too, fire by the fric
tion, and falling into the powder in the
pan ; set it on fire also. The fire burned
through the touch-hole into the gun bar
rel. This took time, and very often a
well aimed gun would be moved out of
place before the powder burned enough
to throw out the ball. Now, a little
percussion powder placed in a copper
cap, is ignited by a blow of the lock, and
the percussion powder being veryquick i
the flame is driven into the barrel, and
the gunpowder explodes before the gun
is moved. Such guns are also surer than
the old flint locks, in which not unfre
quently the flints missed, or the powder
got net, or failed to burn through into
the barrel.
Guns.—These are of many sizes and
and have different names. They-,
consist of a tube, generally round, in the
bottom of which is placed some powder,
and over it a ball or a charge of shot.—
Generally, the powder is put down from,,
from the muzzle, either poured in loose
ly, or put in a bag. Soldiers carry car
tridges, which are commonly made of
little paper tubes,. the ball in one end,
and a measured charge of powder be
hind it. For cannons, the powder is
tied up in flannel bags. Some modern
guris are arranged to be opened at the
breech, and the charge is, put in there.
These are called breech loading guns.—
All guns, large and small, may be divid
ed into two classes, viz : the Smooth
Bore, and the Rifted Bore. At first, all
were made smooth bore ; then hunter's
rifle-bored guns, or "rifles," were made ;
but muskets, shot-guns, and cannons
were still retained with smooth barrels;
then rifled army muskets were made, and
just now they are•niaking rifled cannon.
The scare so much better, that it•now
seems strange that they have not always
been made so. It is impossible to cast
a lead or iron hall so that it will be
equally heavy in every part, and exactly
fit a gun barrel. When a gun is fired a
few times, it expands by the heat, so as
to be too large for the ball. When a
ball is sent through the smooth, ,barrel,
it 'mooves from side to side, and`: when
it goes out into the air, one pide hap
pening to be a trifle the heaviest, it
keeps moving off to that side, which.
may chance to be up or down, or to. the
right or left, so that it is next to impos
sible to send it exactly straight forward.
If its forward end or side be irregular,
it will dart off a little to one side or the
other as it cuts through the air.
The ite.Bore prevents this difficulty
thus : On the inside of the barrel are
little groves, or railway tracks, so to call
them. These do not run straight along
the barrel, but spirally around it. Thus,
if one of these grooves begins at the up
per side of the breech of the barrel, it
gradually winds around to the bottom
or to one side, and in very long guns the
grooves go nearly or quite around, but
generally only about half or three quar
ters of the way round so as to turn the
ball once in from five to ten feet. When
lead balls are used, the sides of the ball
are forced into these grooves, and when
driven out, the ball is given a rotary
motion, that is, it moves along just as if
it were a bead sliding on a string, and
kept turning around the string at the
same time. The great advantage of this
is, that the inequalities in the weight
and shape of the ball are turned, now to
this side, now to that, now up, and now
down, and the ball is thus varied as much
one way as the other, in other words• it
goes straight forward. The balls:can
also be made long and pointed, which
enables them to go through the air bet
ter, with less resistance in proportion to
their weight.
Rffied Cannon.—ln the old smooth
bore cannon the iron balls could not be
made to fly exactly in a straight line.—
The same gun aimed in the same direc
tion, would vary the ball from side to
side of a mark, several feet in shooting
a mile or less. By rifle boring the bar
srel, a good gunner can now hit a man a
mile or two, or so far as he can be sight
ed. As iron canon balls can not be
pressed into the grooves, a ring or cup
of lead is put on the back part of the
ball, and this on firing rs expanded or
forced into the grooves, which not only
gives the ball its rotary motion, but the
lead also stops up the space around the
ball, and prevents the escape of gas, thus
giving greater power to the powder.—
The space necessarily left between a
solid ball and the barrel, is called the
" windage."
Mortars.—These are short, stout guns,
having a large bore. They are not sot
upon w,heels, but upon a heavy low frame
work, and are used for throwing heavy
balls and shells high in the air, to fall
down upon fortifications, into forts,
towns, etc. They are too short to throw
a ball horizontally against the side of a
wall. OWing to their shortness, they
are comparatively light in proportion to
the large ball Or shell which they carry.
The Howitzer, is'longer than the mor
tar, and carries a smaller ball or shell.
The powder chamber back of the ball is
smaller than the rest of the barrel, In
'which it differs from other cannons.—
Mountain Howitzers are Merely Howit
zers of light weight, which can be easily
carried over mountains.
A Caronade is like the howitzer, but
differs from it in being fastened to the
carriage by a loop of iron ander the
middle, instead of resting on " trunions,"
or projections from the side. It is named
from Caron, a village in Scotland, where
it was first made.
The Columbaid differs from the howit
zer in having, no chamber, the bore being
of equal diameter, throughout: It is
also made much thicker at the breech
than at the muzzle, which gives great
strength to that part of the piece where
the principal force of the powder is ex
erted, so that lighter cannon of great
bore, for large shells, can be cast in this
form with less danger of their bursting.
Both solid shot and shell are fired from
the Columbaid.
The Paixhan is only another name for
the Columbaid, and is so called from
Gen. Faixhan, of France, who introduc
ed the invention from America into the
French Army. • .
The Dahlgreen Gun, somewhat resem
bles the Columbaid. It is used fCir fi
ring both solid shot and shell. It is
named after Captain Dahlgreen of the
Unite - d States army, who devised it.
The Whitworth Gun, is a rifled cannon,
loaded at the breech. It carries a long
conical ball, cast with projections on its
sides to fit the grooves of the gnu. -The'
breech is screwed off, when the load is
put in, and then screwed on again for
The Armstrong Grin is also a rifled
piece. Its principal peculiarly is in the
ball used, which has bands of-lead cast
uponit, to fit the grooves. It is-ionie

Projectiles, signify any thing thiown or

cipal projectiles used in cannon. Round
Shot, are solid spherical iron balls, of
different weights, from two to more than'
a hundred pounds. The sizes most em--'
ployed in battle on the open field, weigh
from four to twelve pounds. The guns
from which they are thrown are called
Light Artillery. Heavier shot are used
in Heavy Artillery, for battering down
fortifications, sinking vessels, ete. Ear
Shot, consist of two round shot joined
by a solid bar, like a dumb-bell. Chain
Shot, are two round shot linked together
by a chain. These are used mostly for'
firing at vessels, to destroy their masts .
and rigging. Grape Shot, are small iron '
balls bound together in a canvas bag.—
They are usually arranged around an iron
spike, somewhat in the form of a bunch
of grapes. Canister or Case Shot, are
iron bullets enclosed in a tin box or
case. The Common Shell, or Bomb, is a
large hollow sphere of iron, filled with
powder. A fuse is attached, which takes
fire and burns slowly until the shell
reaches the point aimed at, and then
explodes the shell and scatters the frag
ments. In the improved shell, the fuse
is made of powder ground fine, enclosed
between two metal plates, and fitted to
the opening in the shell. The inner
Plate has' an opening leading to the
powder within the shell, and the outer
One is marked with the figures 1,2, 3, 4.
Before the gunner puts it into the can
non, he pierces the plate at one of these
figures, at 1 if he desires the shell to ex
plode in one second, at 2 for two sec
onds, and so on. Sharpnell Or Spheri
cal Case, are large hollow shot filled
with lead bullets, to which a fuse is at
tached. When fired, the powder just
breaks the shell in the air, and the bul
lets fiy on with the impetus received
from the powder in the cannon, but
"scatter" so as to cover a considerable
space. The Carcasse, is a shell pierced
with several holes and containing some
highly inflainable iugredients, which are
set on fire by the . , burning fuse. It, con
tinues to send out flames for several
minutes, and is. used for setting build
ings or ships on fire. Round shot are
somtimes heated red hot and fired for
the same purpose ; and -recently hollow,
thin shells filled with melted iron, have
been used. The Hand Grenade, is a
small thin shell filled with balls and
powder, and fitted• with a fuse. It is
thrown by hand, the fuse having first
been lighted. It is used to drive off
attacking parties from a fort or vessel,
to throw over breast works, or into forts,
and is a formidable weapon.
member of the Thirteenth regiment Col.
Smith, writing to. the Brooklyn Eagle,
says that Corporal William H. Russell,
of Company E, discovered a revolving
gun on the 24th, and with a squad of
men took .possession of it. It is owned
by Mr. William of New 'York,
and was invented by Emerson Ames ;
who is now in Europe trying to dispose
of the model. It is mounted on a two
wheeled carriage, his 'eight chambers.
and is capable of being fired forty times
a minute by four men. It carries a one
and , a- half pound Minis ball of two in

with one and a half ounces of powder.—
It is one of the most simple and com
