[Prom Dr. Kane's '* Arctic Exploration*,'' now in press by Messrs Child* & feterson, of Pl.il adelphta j A Brush with Death. The next day gave a* admirable progress. The ice opened in leads before us, somewhat tortuous, nut, on the wholo, favoring, and for sixteen hoars I never left the helm We were all of us exhausted when the day's work came to a close Our allowance had been small from the first; but the delays we seemed fated to encounter had made mo reduce them to what I then thought the minimum quantity, six ounces of bread dust and a lump v>f tallow the size of a walnut; a paste or broth, made i f these before setting out in the morning, and distributed occasionally through th? day fn scanty rations, was our only fare. We were all ot us glad when, running the boats under the lee of a berg, we were able to fill our ket tles with snow and boil up for our ?reat res torative, tea. 1 may remark that, uuder the circumstances of most privation, I found no comforter so welcome to the party as this.? We drank immoderately of it, and always with advantage. While the uicn slept after their weary labor McOary and myself climbed the berg for a view ahead. It was a saddening one. We had lost sight of Cary Island; but suoreward. up Woeteuholme channel, the ice seemed as if it hid not yet begun to yield to the influences of summer. Everything showed how intense the last winter had been Wc were close upon the 1st of July, and had a right to look for the North Water of the Whalers where we now bad solid ice or clo c pack, both of them al most equally unfavorable to our progress ? Far off in tl>e distance?how far 1 could not mca.-ura?rose the Dalrymple rock, projecting from the lofty precipice of the is'and ahoad; but between ui and it tbe laud of ice fprcad itself from the base of Saundcr'.-' Island un broken to the far south. The next day's progress was of course slow and wearisome, pushing through alternate ice aud water for the land belt We fastened at last to tho great floe near the shore, making our harbor in a crack which opened with the changes of tide The imperfect diet of the party was showing itself more and more in the decline of their muscular power. They seemed tcarcely aware of it themselves, and referred the difficulty they found in dragging aud pushing to some thing uncommon about the ice or sludge rather than to their own weakness. But, hp we endeavored to renew our labors through tho morning fug, bolted in on ail sides by ice fields so distorted and rugged as to defy onr efforts to cross then, the truth teemed to bunt upon every ono. Wc had lost the feeiing ot hunger, and were almost satisfied with our pasty broth and the large draughts of tea which accompanied it. I wasacxious to send our small boat, the Eric, across to the luiume hill Appall, where I knew from the Esqui maux we should find plenty cf birds; but the strength ot .the party was insufficient to drag her. We were sorely disheartened, ar.d could only wiiit for the fog to rise, in the hope of ?ume tmoother plattorm than that which was about us, or some lead that might save us tho painful labor of tracking I had climbed the iceberg, and there was nothing in view except Dalrymple liock, with its red brassy face tow ering in the unknown distauce. But I hardly g<*t ba?k to my boat before a gale struck us from the northeast, and a floe, taking upon a tongue of ice about a mile to tbe northeast of us, begau to swing upon it like a pivot and close slowly in upon our narrow resting place At first our own floe was driven before the wind ; but in a little while it encountered the stationary ice at the foot of tho very ro.-k it self. On the insUnt the wildest imaginable ruin rose round us. The men sprang mechan ically each one to hi- statioD, bearing back the boats and stores; but I gave up for the moment all hope of our escape. It was not a nip, such as is familiar to Arctic navigators, but tbe whole platform where we stool, aud for hundreds of yards on every side of u.?. crumbled and crushed and piled and tossed itself madly under the pressure I do not be lieve that of our little body of men, all of t'lem disciplined in trial?, able to measure danger whilo combating it?I do not believe there is one who this day can explain how or why?hardly when, in fact?we found our selves afloat. Wc only know that in the midst of a clamor utterly indescribable through which the braying of a thousand trumpet-1 could no more have been heard than the voica of a man, we were shaken and raised and whirled and let down again in a swelling waste of broken hummocks, and as the men grasped their boat hooks in the stillness that followed, the beats eddied away iu a tumul tuous skreed of ice and snow and water. We were borne along in this manner as long a the unbroken remnant of the inshore floe continued revolving?utterly p >werles3, and oatching a glimpse every now and then of the brazen headland that looked down on us through the snowy sky At las' ths fl>c brought up against the rock?, the looser fra, ?ments that hung round it began to sepsrat-, and we were able by our oars and boat hooi a to force our battered little flotilla clear ot them To our joyful surprise, we soou found ourselves in a stretch of the lar.d water wide enough to give us rowing room, and with the assured promise of land close ahead. As we neared it, we saw the same forbid ding wall of belt ice as at Sutherland and liakluyt We pulled along its margin, seek ing in vain either an opening of access or a nook of fcholtor. The gale rose, and the ice began to drive again ; but there was nothing to be done but get a grapnel out to the belt and hold on for rising tide. The Hope stove her bottom and lost part of her weather boarding, and all the boats were badly chafed. It was an awful storm ; and it was not without constant exertion that we kept afloat, bailing out the scud that broke over us. and warding off the ice with boat-hooks At three o'clock the tide was high enough for us to scale the ice cliff One by one we pulled up to the boatf upon a narrow shelf, tbe wholo sixteen of us uniting at each pull. We were too much worn down to unload ; but a deep and narrow g?rge opened in the cliffs almost at tbe spot where we clambered up; and as we pushed the boats into it on an open keel, the rocks seemed to close above our heads, until an abrupt turn in tbe coursc of the ravine placed a protecting cliff between us and the gale. We were completely enoaved. Just as we had brought in the last boat, tbe lied Erio, and were shoring her up with blocks ot ice, a long unused but familiar and unmis takable sound startled and gladdened every ear, and a flock of eiders flecking the sky for a moment passed swiftly in front of us. Wc knew that we must be at their breeding grounds ; and, as we turned in wat and hun giy to our long coveted sleep, it wus only to dream of eggs and abundanco. We remained almoet three days in our orys Ul retreat, gathering eggs a the rate <f twelve huudrcd a day. Outside, the storm raged without intermission, and our egg hun ters found it difficult to kcop their feet; but a merrier set of gourmands than were gathered within nover surfeited on genial diet On the 3d of July tho wind began to m> d erato, though the snow still fell heavily ; and the next morning after a patriotic egg nog, liquor borrowed grudgingly from our aloohil flask, and dilated till it was worthy of tern perauce praise?we lowered our boat*, and bade a grateful farewell to " Weary Man e Rett."

Dated August 12, 1S56 The Great Rsrt blic ?This monster ship, the pride and boast > f the American mer chant fleet, not only on aocount of ber great itise and beauty of model, but also for ber un surpassed sailing qualities, has arrived back h<>me, after an absence of nearly two years, during which time she has been employed, together with a large number of other Ameri can ships of all site*, in the French transport service, during the war in the Crimea &am<) idea of her capacity may be gathered from the fa:t that ou one of her trips from Mar seilles to Kamiesch she carried 497 cavalry horses, for whose accommodation the entire length of tho two between decks were par titioned into stalls, besides over 500 troops, and the provisions and forage necessary for the voyage. On her last return trip from Se bastopol she brought to Marseilles over 3ti3t? infantry besides her own crew, and a large corps of cooks, servants and waiters, required for the Commissary department, and tfiis too with her hold full of guns of great size, shells, baggage, and the necessary water and pro visions. In every port she has visited, she has been thronged with people of all classes, whose wonder and admiration at her enormous site and beauty have been expressed. Yet it would be unfair to contend that to this ship alone is due such a favorable idea of our merchant marine. Other ships such as the Monarch of the Sea, Titan, Uueen of Clip pers, Ocean llerald, Guantlet, White Falcon, and a host of others, all of great site, beauty and speed have been engaged in the same scrrice, and by their superior efficiency havo supplied immensely the pressing wants of the peculiar trade in which tbey have been en gaged . To their officer* and orews, the hor rors of war, without its m<>re immediate dan gers, it is true, have bean too familiar, and lung may it be before another occasion arisrs to employ these splendid ships in a similar ecrviee ?Nf te Fori Erprtst. Power or Cab Brakes ?Brakes cannot stop a train of cars instantly If applied too ligntly they 'lock the wheels,' but they can not prevent the whole from slipping along on the smooth track. A writer in the Boston Railway Times has figured out the result of locking the wheels at various speeds, and finds that at a speed of 6 miles per hour a train would aliae 0 feet; at 20 miles, 100 feet; and at a speed of 60 miles per hoar a train would slide, in ordinary condition of the track, a distance of VO0 feet, or over one-sixth of a mile, in spite of all that brakes or even run ners or drags under the wheels oould do to prevent it. This is assuming that every wheel is braked or locked, which is never the ease in practice ?the locomotive, the heaviest mass in the train, being without brakes, although if the looomotive was reversed, the effect would not be much less in diminishing the momentum. He ooncludes that, from the very nature of the case, brakes cannot ever be relied onai? safeguard against accidents. Aocidents must be avoided mainly by suitable arrangement* iu running tho trains, and brakes are at best only a means of softening?very rarely of averting entirely?the collisions which occur from defective management. Magnetic Iboh.?A correspondent of the New York Scientific American, writing from Biooinfield, N. J , says that on a railway near t^at town there is an uphill grade, running north-west of eighty or ninety feet to the mile, on which eash of the individual rails is a mag net, the upper end being a South pole, and the lower end a North pole He presume* that on all inclined railway grades the case the same, no matter what may be the di rection, or from what mine the iron oame, as there is a law of magnetism, that all bar* of iron become magnets the moment you raise them from a horiiontal position This mag netio law, he thinks, has not been eonsidered enough on board of teasels, in relation to lucal attraction, and he adds, that it has doubt less been the oause of their running on shore sometimes Clear a* Men ?A writer says that traa soendentalism is the spiritual oognoseenoe of psychlogical irrefragibility, connected with ccmcuitant ademption of onoolumnient spiritu ality and etherialised contention of subsultorj concretion.
