This bill was presented to me on the l Uh day May, 18(59, and the tinal lidjournment of the (ieneral Assembly took place on the I7tli day of tiie same month, and tho bill not having been acted upon within live days thereafter, tooket-fect with Executive approval, on the L'.id diiv of Miiv, 180!).  CONUAI) BAKER.  What is "One-Uorse Power!"  The use of the word "horse-power" is very common, yet few, except good mechanics and engineers attach a definite meaning to it, but regard it as indicating loosely about the power one horse would exert. It is, "however, when used in the sense under consideration, as definite as possible, and means the power required to lift thirty-three thousand pounds avoirdupois one foot high in one minute. A horse hitched to tho end of a rope, over a pully one foot in diameter, placed over a deep well, traveling at the rate of about two and a half miles per hour, or two hundred and twenty feet per minute, will draw up one hundred and fifty pounds the same distance he travels. The force thus exerted is called in mo-chnnics, a ''horse-power," it being an approximation of the average amount of continuous power it is fair to demand of a strong horse. If we multiply the weight raised (one hundred and fifty pounds) by the number of feet it was moved per minute, (two hunilred and twenty), the product will bo the number of pounds which the same power would raise only one foot high in the samo length of time, (thirtj'-threo thousand pounds.)— The dynamometer is an instrument made for measuring power, particularly that exerted in drawing. Those used in testing the draft of agricultural implements are simply very strong spring balances, or spring steelyards, graduated to indicate the power required to raise any weight within" iitty reasonable limits, at the vate of two and a half miles per hour. When we apply the dynamometer in ascertaining the draft of machines, if tho index indicates one hundred and fifty pounds, it is sliown that the horse is required to draw just as hard as he would do if raising one hundred and fifty pounds out of a well with a rope over a pulley ono foot in diameter, at the rate of two and a half miles per hour, and so for other Aveights. Tho velocity at which a team moves is to bo considered, as well as tho weight to be raised, or tho load to be drawn. If a horse travels faster than two and a half miles in an hour, while raising ono hundred and fifty pouunds out of a well, ho exerts more than one-horse power. If he walks slower than this, he does not exert a force equal to one-horse power. In ascertaining the draught of a plow or reaper and mower, by driving faster than two antr a half mil©» per hour, tho dynamometer will indicate more than tho correct draught; and by driving slower, the draught would appear to be less than it really is. In testing the draught of machines a team should always move at the* rate of two and a halt miles an hour, or two hundred and twenty feet per minute, which is the universally accepted rate with reference to which dynamometers are graduated, and an easy ono to which an approximate in driying with almost any kind of rate. Many persons have supposed that three hundred pounds—two-horse power— represented the same fbrce- that a team would exert when dragging three hundred pounds along on the ground. A horse can haul six hundred pounds on the hard ground with ease; but he could not draw hard enough on the dynamometer to mark more than two hundred and fifty or three hundred pounds except for a lew minutes. The power of a man is estimated at one-fifth that of a horse-power.

A chiropadist on Broadway devotes a good deal of time and attention to this line of trade, while a man called Susson imitates his example. The process of thl8>icu-amelin^ is somewhat curious. The belle who would enameling go is first examined with a microscope, and any rough hairs or fuzz which exist upon the cheeks or bust is at once; removed with liniment, or plaster, medicated soap, or scissors, or twezcrs even. Being thus prepared, tho checks or bust are coated with a fine enamel, which is composed of arsenic, or white lead, or other ingredients made into a semi-paste, and pleasantly scented An ordinary coating of enamel will endure for a day or two; but to render the operation of any per mancnt clfcct the coating process has to be repeated twice a week for varying periods, according to cir cuinstanccs, and the circumstances of its owner. The penciling of the eyebrows, so as to render the contrast between them and the whitened face more striking, is sometimes iiiclutled in the enameling process while the eyebrow is also trimmed or shaven just as Ihe inoustach on a man.  It costs a good deal of gold to be wcll enameled. The pricos of en aiiiling vary, but the average prico list of the various stages is about as follows: For enameling the lace to last once or twice, from SIO to $ir>; for enameling the face and bust temporarily, from $1.1 toS20; for enameling the face to endure one or two weeks, from $15 to S25; for enameling the facc and biiHt, to last about the same period, from S'.ir) to $3.'» ; for permanently, (this Is for six iiionths,) keeping the face in a well enauieled e.oudition, from $2<iO to 1350, and lor keeping the face and bust both in the same pleasing state, from $400 to ^(100. .So that from Its very cost alone enaiiiuling should become lasliion-able.

The  Growth and Future Nation.  We talk of New England as the hive of manufactures. I put this prediction on record, and I won't wait ten years to see it fulfilled, that California and Oregon are going to almost rival New England in manufactures. I believe it.— With all the hundreds of millions lu the lands fronting the Pacific sea, stretching out their hands, as they will, toward this country for all those articles that can bo manufactured here, you will see the infant manufactures of the Pacific States leaping forward with the gigantic strides with which our country has Illustrated its entire history in tho annals of tho world. Have you thought how wo are swelling iu population ? Going, as I did two or three weeks ago, and looking back on-ancient and modern history, I found no parallel to it. Tho advance of this country, not alone in its tfrealth, which has more than doubled every ton years, but iu the increase of its population, which is even more valuable than gold and silver, has been six times more than Great Britain, nine times move than Austria, ten times more than France, and is destined to give us a hundred milliouH at the end of the century; and beyond it our nation is to be, in its power, in its grandeur, in its terrible area, in its resources, in its capabilities, and in its opportunities, what I dare not attempt to predict to vou. It is to come if we are faithful; it is to come, if we are just; it is to come if we arc true to ourselves; from Orient to Occident, from mountain to mountain, from At-lautic to Pacific, from hundred-harbored Maine to the Golden Gate, the future of this great country, if only prudence, wisdom Justice, and light and peace, shall guide it, shall bo beyond tho portrayal of language, beyond any words that my tongue can express to you upon this joyful night, the opening of the new history of the American Republic.  Schuyler Colfax.  Walking;.  In his article on "Walking," Prof. Smyth has the following somewhat fanciful speculations:  "The tradesman iu walking gives signs of folding cloth, measuring tape, and taking down bundles.— The ponderous arm and heavy fall of his hand Uctrayo" the oiacK-smitn ; • ana-tne- quick, nervous grasp with which she adjusts her dress, gives unmistakable evidence of a factory operative. Travelers who visit the field of Waterloo are accustomed to enter their names in a register. This book has been kept for many years by the same person, and with wonderful accuracy he is able to designate the visitor's nationality simply by inspecting the handwriting. Much more easily can the profession or nation bo detected by the gait. Tho grave Spaniard, the phlegmatic Dutchman, the vivacious and sanguine Frencliman, the reserved and formal Briton, the inquisitive impetuous and self-confident American, each betrays the natioual gait in his style of walking. The sailor rolls when on shore, as if our trim planet sailed unsteadily. The soldier marches even when no longer under orders. The sychophant bends the knee as if every man he meets were a p: luce. The lawyer steps boldly and patronizingly.— The clergyman abstractedly, as if the street were his study, or cautiously, as if mindful of tho snares and pit-falls spread for the unwary. The waiting clerk is known by his bo^s and graceful elTrontory.— Wo distinguish the coxcomb by the careful manner in which he drops his foot and picks his way along the street; a watchman, by his heavy, measured tread. Students saunter, school-girls trip, dally and loiter, children patter, doctors hurry, hunters stride, teamsters trudge, gossips gab, market-women shufie, ghosts stalk, and aldermen strut."  Free Seats.  [From the Central Chilstlan Advocate, (Methodist) St. Louis.]  The seats in a man's dining-room are not usually supposed to be free, and very few would have sufficient impudence to walk in uninvited. Every man's home is sacred, is his castle, and when there he is shut in from the world, and has the right to make his own domestic arrangements. When the privacy and sa-credness of the family is made the basis of church organization, wrong is perpetrated. The church is not merely a social institution, it is a divine organism, intended to be the common home of all who love God, and the place of instruction for all who desire to love God. After mature deliberation, we have come to the conclusion that the Central Christian Advocate can not be silent upon a disastrous evil without incurring blame. The Methodists, in imitation of other churches which had grown rich, unfortunately, adopted tho plan of having pewed churches. New England did more than all other sections to force this bad habit upon the church, and now it is remarkable that Boston is tho first large city to declare for a reform. Boston Methodists have, of late, grown in graco wonderfully, and to save the people they vote for free seats. We do not eeusure any church for having pews, any more than we would blame a woman for dressing in the fashion. The fashion of exclusive scats in God's house has bad its day, it is going into outer darkness, and our houses of worship will soon be as free as the light of day.  The Methodists, who were the last to adopt pews and operatic singing, may be the last to banish them, but they are doomed to an ignominious death, and Boston lias the honor of initiating the new fashion, as far as Methodists arc concerned. The Romanists, actuated by the wisdom of the world, never admitted pews into churches. The Episcopalians, who have always been thought aiistocratic, have recently made the very strongest protest against pews. Several bishops have urged that tho free seat system should be adopted in all their churches. Tho Baptists, Congrcgationaiists and Presbyterians are moving upon the enemy's works, and all along the line we hear the cry, "Free seats." "Whosoever will, let him come." Wo never heard a tenable argument in favor of flio^eW system, and we suppose most people will be willing to adopt the more liberal and reasonable plan. If tho purpose of tho church organization is social enjoyment, and personal comfort, then wo might have not only pews but couchcs, sofas, and finally, ice cream and lemonade; but if we really intend to bring sinners to Christ, we must make salvation acceptable to all. The very idea of exclusive seats repels the multitude and is the main barrier which keeps the people from the churches. Being invited to preach for oae of our city pastors, now absent, we were astonished to find free seats and free congregational singing. It was about like an old-fashioned Methodist Church before pews and choirs hail been appointed.  To a good choir which leads the singing, and does not monopolize it, wo have no objection, but a paid quartette doing tho music iu a church is out of all character a ridiculous imitation of opera houses, and a wondrous piece of stupidity. New England made us take the pews, wo hope she can persuade us to abandon them.  Probable Uepih of thè Sea.  Before the device of telegia|>hic communication wltli America had caused the bed of the North Atlantic to be explored by the soundings to a depth seldom exceeding three miles, there was reason to conclude from the investigations of Dr. Chewcll, on Cotidal Lines, that a depth of nine miles was attained in the South Atlantic ; and from the separate computations of Airy and llaughton, that a somewhat greater depth occurred in a part of the course of tho tide-wave which washes the coast of Ireiand.  The greater portion of the seabed is within reach of soundings, directed by the superior skill and great perseverance of modern scientific navigators. A depth of six miles is said to have been reached in one small tract of the North At-laiitic ; depths of nine or ton miles in the deepest chaiiucls of the sea are probable, from considerili" tho general proportion which is likely to obtain between sea-depths and mountain-tops. Thus the data are gradually collected for a complete survey of the bed of the sea, including, among other things, information, at least, concerning the distribution of animal and vegetable life b<!Uoath the waters.

Watch-Screws,  The screws in a watch number forty-four, or more than oiie quarter of all its pieces. The Screw and Steel Department is one of the largest iu tho factory. Its magical little automata, run by nimble-fingered girls, convert shining steel wire into infinitesimal screws, pare down their heads, and cut slots in them for microscopic screw-drlv-crs. They are polished to perfect smoothness, and thou, like every other part of tho watch, brought to '•spring temper"—the temper of the sword-blade—by heating, whieh leaves them ot a rich, deep blue. The illustration shows tho screws of their actual size, and also one mngnified 100 times ftach way, or 10,000 times the actual size.  Here are machines which will cut scrcivs with five hundred threads the inch; tho finest used in tho watch have two hundred and fifty Even these threads are invisible to the naked eye, and it takes one hundred and forty-four thousand of tho screws to weigh a pound. A pound of them is worth six pounds of pure gold. Lay ono upon a piece of white paper, and it looks like tho tiniest steel-filing. Only bv placing it under a strong magnifier can we detect its threads and see that it is shining as n mirror, and as true and perfect as the driving-wheel of a locomotive.  Screws of the best compensation balance are of gold. A ten-dollar ilece will funiish material for six lundred and fifty of them. The compensation-batancc comes from tho Punching Room a solid piece of steel as large and heavy as a new penny, and inclosed in a rim of brass. It is ground down, worked out, and polished till it becomes a slender wheel—the outer rim brass the inner rim and cross-bar steel— lighter and thinner than a finger-ring. Through the double rim twenty-two holes are drilled for the screws. A chuck whirls the wheel around—as one wouUI spin a penny upon a table-four thousand eight hundred times a minute, while u lad makes each hole by applying three tiny drills one after the other, lie will bore one hundred wheels per day, or apply a drill oftenerthan once in 6 seconds from morning till night, to say nothing of time consumed in fastening on and taking ofi: the wheels and sharpening his drills. Screws of gold or brass are then put in and the balance is completed. On this little part alone ncorly eighty operations have been pcrformed.—A. D. UiciiAitDSoN in Harper's Magazine for July.  Two men named Lewis Mayer and Arnold Lewis were arrested in New York, recently, on a charge of boring holes In the bellows of gas meters. Each hole saved 10 per cent, upon the consumer's bill,while the comp-my sustained 10 per cent, loss. This fraud bos been largely practiced both in New York and Boston.  Death of, Henry J. Saymoii« of the Kew York Times.  New Yoek, June 18__^The Post  fives the facts of Mr. Raymond's eath, from thè best authority, as follows:  Mr. Raymond, accompanied by bis daughter, went to Greenwood Cemetery yesterday, for the purpose of selecting a family lot. He intended to have the body of one of his children who died á few. weelfi ago, removed from the vanlt and reinterred. He' returned to the Times office about 5 o'clock, and remarked to the associate editors that be never felt better in his life, except a sad feeling of fatigue consequent upon his long walk through the cemetery. Ho left the office at about'6 o'clock and proceeded to his residence in West Ninety-eighth street where he remained until about 9 o'clock, to recover from the fatigue of the afternoon. Mr. Raymond left his house about 9 o'clock, remarking to the members of his family that he had an appointment to attend a political meeting. He was shortly after walking up Broadway, and one or two friends who stood in front of Wallack's Theater, noticed his elastic step and general appearance of robust health. After attending the meeting ho returned to his residence at 11 o'clock, and as soon as he had closed the door after him he fell heavily upon the floor., None of the inmates of the house heard the fall, however, having retired for the night. At about 3 o'clock this morning one of his children became restless, and, upon becofn-ing fully aroused, remarked that he heard some one breathing heayiiy.^ The persons in the house were awakened, and oti descending to the hall-way, Mr. R. was found extended on the floor entirely unconscious, breathing heavily, and apparently with great difficulty. He was carried to his room and placed on a bed, and physicians sent for ; four of whom arrived soon after. They examined him and pronounced him beyond all medical tíd. They also declared the case to be apoplexy. Mr. R. lingered in an unconscions state nntil 6 o'clock in the moruing, when he died, surrounded by his family. He passed away apparently with bat little pain. The news of his death caused much excitement, and very general regret throughout the city. All down town hotel and newspaper offices displayed their flags at half-mast as a mark of respect. The associated Press to-day adopted resolutions expressive of profound sorrow at the death of Mr. Raymond.  New England's Dkcline.—It is true that parts of New England are decaying. Thousands of acres which once-were under cultivation are now covered with forest. Whole districts which were once occupied by thrifty American families are now quite deserted or inhabited by foreigners. Bo^ on the other hand, the cities hare more than doubled in population within twenty-five years. New ■ villages have sprang np, and almost all the old towns are more popnlons, prosperous and beautiful tban they wore a generation ago. The agricultural interest has declined, bat other interests have sprang ap and grown Into overshadowing importance. The property of the six States has steadily increased in spite of the draft oftheivár and the greater drain of emigration. New lüngland has declined relatively only because the rest of the Union has grown with such tepidity, and she lias contributed moró to that growth of population, property, enterprise and ideas than any other section of country. Every rail road has tapped that cask, and drawn oat more or less of its contents. Every new city west of the Hudson has been built up at her expense. Braaklyn and Bufialo, Cleveland an^hCoago are prutic-ally New England cities. Minnesota is Massachusetts junior. There is not a village inali the West bat traces its best blood, back to the veins of the old Puritans of Connecticut, and Plymouth and Massachusetts Bay. New England has declined only because she has beén translated. We go back and look in the old nest and find nothing there but shells ; on tbe trees, all through the forests, are the winged ones that rose from the house of straw to fill tho whole land with beauty and music. New England has declined—into Americft. Ply-month Rock is only the door-step of a house that reaches to tbe Golden Gate.—Liberal Christian.  Funny tilings happen In the horse cars sometimes. A young lady stepped into a car and droppod her handkerchief upon a vacant seat, as much as to say "taken," While she advanced to the opposite end of the car to speak to a lady friend. Meanwhile a nicely-dressed ^oung man, with a college air about him, jumped in and sat down on the 'liandkerohiof without observing it. The young lady, after winding; up her conversation, turned back, discovered to her chagrin her seat was occupied and sat down opposite, a gentleman making room for her. But she did not desire to lose her handkerchief, and so she looked intently toward the place where she had left It, hesitating -whether to ask for it or not. Discovering the direction of her looks, all eyes on the opposite side of the car were bent on tbe young man. Finding himself the object of so much attention, he himself looked, and discovered to his horror, sometbiuK white on which hu sat, the end peeping oat. He mistook its character. To cover it with his hand and to tuck it nicely away was the work of a few moments. None in the car but tho young lady kn^w that the «white" was a handkeiv chief, and, hesitating still more to ask, she lost it, having had occasion to leave the car before the young man did.  A native Boston youth accosted a boy of decided African lineage a a few days since, and inquired of the sable lad why her had so short a nose. The reply was: "I spcct'a so it won't poke itself into other people's business."  A New View of Railway.Oou-i>ensation.—A newspaper tells the following story of a recent accident: "An intoxiOated Irishman was sitting on the line whan the engine tossed him down an embankment The driver backed his train to pick up the dead body. The victim was found alive, however, only somewhat braised, and taken to Norwich. Here the driver kindly offered to send the man to his home, a few miles awaj^ in a hack; but he insisted on his ability to walk, and refbsed to be sent homo. The driver nrcMWed the matter, when the Mifeslh^ho had stood the buttingoCttfifiy-catcher so well, brUtlea upliilh: "Go away with your kerrtdf6->l'il go home by myself; and if I've done any damage to yer old InginSi b«' dad, I'll pay H on the spot."
