Beginning to make signs of its Axis tence in the South Kensington museum. We allude to the electric Telegraph. Bake we s copying machine is one of the most interesting of this clasp As it brings before the Public Eye the Means that can be employed to write with. A pen thousands of Miles in length. If the Atlantic Cable were in working order for instance a Man through its sit Down to write a letter in London an feel certain that a simile of his handwriting was a at the same time coming out of Telegraph office at new York. The manner in which a this astounding machine works is As follows the message is originally written on a conducting material such As ten foil with resin or some non conducting Ink. Over the face of this letter which is placed on a Cylinder a Point of Metal revolves this Point is connected with the conducting wire at new York say a piece of chemically prepared paper is placed Ona like Cylinder to receive the message both cylinders Are made to move around by clock work. At the Point of this end of the wire passes Over the non conducting resin writing no current passes hence the Point which moves synonymously with it at new York does not change the color of the paper but All the other surface of the writing Tablet being a conductor the pass and deepen its color by chemical action on the Distant recording Tablet. The receiver thus obtains a perfect simile of his correspondents handwriting done in White on a Blue ground. Specimens of this electrical handwriting Are placed beside the Telegraph machine in the museum of Kensington and afford an admirable example of the calligraphy of the lightning pen.
