A new explosive von Scheliga and lieutenant vont it itt mar both of the prussian army and the latter the inventor of the explosive known As Dublin have been giving a practical test of it Quality at the Hoosan Tunnel which has proved very successful. The experiments included trials of its Power upon l Ocks simply placing a few ounces on the surface Aud covering it with dirt upon a Boulder in Tho open Field the Hole being drilled in the usual Way and the Dublin lightly tramped in and in the regular wiry to of the Tunnel at the West and Central shafts. In every instance the explosive did All that was claimed for it and proved itself a powerful explosive agent. The same weight of the Dublin is More effective than Nitro Glycerine while it is also considerably cheaper and is absolutely Safe in the handling. Its obvious advantages Over Glycerine Are so great that a considerable Quantity of it has been ordered already and it is probable that it will soon be exclusively used by the messes. Shanley in their work on the Tunnel. Its great advantage is in a the safety with which it can be used even allowing for Accident or carelessness. Wilile possessing Many a of the properties of Glycerine it is so prepared Ana combined with other substances As not to be exploded by concussion us indeed when not confined and fire is applied to it it does not explode but simply bums. Lieut. Dittmer brought Over with him from Germany 100 pounds of Dublin in a carpet bag and we Are sure he would not have treated Nitro Glycerine in that confidential manner. There have already been numerous fatal accidents from Glycerine at the Tunnel and any explosive that will be equally effectual and yet Safe to handle will be a real Boon to the workmen if to no one Springfield re pub. 29th ult.
