THE NAUTILI'S. The Nautilus, an American invention for working beneath the sea. in almost any depth of water, wo are glad to see. has proved a com plete success with the English mind. The Victoria Dock afforded facilities to Mr. Ilallett and Major Sear* for making the ex periment for the information of the public, on the 2d Tuesday in June. There was assem bled to witness the experiments as large a num ber of practical engineers and scientific men as had been seen present on any similiar occasion for the last twenty years. The London Era. June 11, gives the following account of the ex periment. Upon the arrival at the docks of the distin guished party. Mr. Hallett, to whom for the in troduction of the Nautilus we are indebted, gave the strongest possible proof of his confidence in the self-supporting power of the machine, by disconnecting from it the hose communicating with the barge attached, and making, with a single diver, four descents iu twenty-five feet of water We think we cannot do better, for confirming our views of the great usefulness of this machine, than to give the following speech from Robert Stephenaon, the great engineer, delivered at a very elegant luncheon supplied after the ex periments had concluded Mr. Robert Stephenson said?';The Nautilus Machine?aud I am shaking from personal and careful examination?appears to possess so many qualifications as a diving bell (a machine which has hitherto been confined to very limited prac tical operations), that I inav truly say it may 1* called a universal diving-bell. (Loud cheers.) I assure jou that I could -,.ot !ie!^ feeling very much interested in what had been told me of it* usefulness. (Hear, hear.) Thoy arc dis tinct c!as*cs of mechaiiical genius; one distin guished fur extreme ingenuity iu minute de tails, applicable to many processes of the high est value in civilized society; but I think the highest cla*s of mechanical, talent and genius is brought to bear in completing those mechan ical contrivances that may be called rough und ready machines. (Loud cheering ) Every mechanic in this room will fully ap Freciate what I mean. (Renewed cheering.) consider this one of such roujrh and ready ma chines. and I must say that the Nautilus Diving bell appears to me to combine the highest class of mechanical skill with that high class of in genuity in detail to which I have referred, threat cheering ) For I must mention to vou that the ingenuity brought to bear in Mr. Wil liamson s pump in the barge, which you must bave observed, was by a hose connected with the " Nautilus,1' is scarcely second to the com prehensive skill which is evidenced in the ar rangements within the bell itself, and I must traukly say that, from the beginning to the end, I have never witnessed a piece of incchanicism so perfectly adapted to the purposes for which it was designed a? the Nautilus Diving-bell and I'ump (Long-continuedcheering) Gentlemen, with the tout T have proposed you must per mit me to couple the names of Hallett and Ma jor Sears, to whom. I consider, we are indebt ed for introducing this remarkable result of Mechanical ingenuity and genius. (Loud cheers.) Before I conclude I think I should give you the substance of a statement made in reference ?o the working of this machine, by the engineer under my friend, Mr. bidder. It appears that great difficulty has been experienced, under the old method, ol replacing the heavy iron roller plates for the outer dock gates. The Nautilus was applied to this work, and I have no doubt the meeting will be surprised to learn the fact that an amount of work w/tich hivl prerioitx /y oerupted a period of three we fix and four days, teat performed hy the Nantiln* in tiro days and two honrs with the same number of men employed daily. (Enormous cheering, which lasted some time.) The engineer reports that he has been down in the Nautilus machine, and Is satisfied that by its use nearly the same amount of masonry can be done under water as can be d >ne above the surface." [Great cheering ] lie then proposed the toast, which was drunk with three times three and one cheer more. Mr. Hallett. in returning thanks, said.?I thank yon. I thank you heartily, for the kind manner in which the distinguished gentlemen have been pleased to speak of the Nautilus, and I thank you. gentlemen, for the cordial manner in which you received it. Justly proud as I am to be an American?proud as I am of the stars and Stripes upon the self-reliant breast of an American eaglo?I am still more proud to have been instrumental, in any manner, however humble, in introtlvue'iAg ah American invention worthy tbo distinguished character given the Nautilus, by such a man *> Robert Stephenson, before whom all others ars as pigmies in engi neering science?than whom none excell in all of public and private life I am sure more is due to the eminent gentle men who have honored us with their company this day for the successful experiments ot the Nautilus than to any effort of myself; and 1 may be allowed to say. that to the directors of the Victoria Dock Company, and to Sir M. 1'eto. are we indebted for the cordial and liberal facil ity that has been given for the introduction of the Nautilus in England. Every opportunity has been given us by these gentlemen for ex tended experiments, and, as has been stated by Mr R Stephenson, for the practical working test of a rough and ready American machine | Lo?4 cheers. | It will be the highest pride of the American proprietors to make the Nautilus worthy the confidence and patronage of the Victoria Dock Company, and of the high char acter paid it by Mr Robert Stephenson on this occasion The chairman has pronounced the toast, and I am happy to say. as an American, that his sentiment will meet with a warm re sponse in the hearts of my countrvmen. |Che?rs } The beauty and the perfection of American marine architecture, and the skill and science of Americans in this profession, hare been al luded to, as exemplified in the production of the Inited State.-, war steamer Niagara I as snre you it is with profound pride that Ameri cans look forward to the triumphant accom plishment of her peaceful mission to England? preparatory to performing her part in" laying the great submarine telegraph cable, which u to connect the opposite shores of England and America. It is a beautiful thought, and won derfully comprehensive as beautiful, that within a tew months, space and time between London and New York, and the two greatest progress ive commercial cities of the world, will speak to each other with the rapidity of thought The movements in the London and New York money markets will appear in both countries on the same day they t ike place The last di vision in the British Parliament will bo an nounced simultaneously with the last Congres sional vote in Washington. {Load cheers.J And the same news will be transmitted over 42.000 miles of connecting telegraph line in the I nited States, and over 33.000 miles in Europe. Then. I trust, the union and interests ot Eng land and America will be one. and that it will be the glory aud pride of both countries that America should be considered England's eldest daughter.

Sijiotlar Case.-Twenty-Jive Dayt 7nth ant Foo/i. Mr. Ellis, of Henrietta, Monroe countj, N. Y., cut his throat about two months since. He died on the 2<ith instant. The Ro chester Democrat says: " We learn that Mr. Ellis, of Henrietta, died on Sunday night, shortly after 9 o'clock. For several days previous he appeared to decline more rapidly than he hnd done since the first reaction from the effects of his dreadful wound. He had taken little nourishment, and at times his mind appeared to lose its grasp of earthly things, and he spoke of 4 wanting to go home.' Ihese wandering flights were temporary, how ever. and he recognized persons readily at other times. His death was calm and easy,"the phys ical powers ceasing from gradual exhaustion. -About the first sickness which Mr. Ellis had experienced, was occasioned by a severe oold taken last winter in clearing up a new piece of land on his farm. From this ho did not appear to entirely recover, his brain being ap parently slightly affected by it. Last April he received an offer for the purchase of one-half the farm on which he resided?one of the best in that locality, about one hundred acres in ex tent, with a handsome dwelling-house upon it. He accepted it. Hut after closing the bargain lie reflected upon It a good deal, and camc to the conclusion that he had parted with the land for less than its value. This troubled him ex ceedingly. and deprived him of cheerfulness by day and rest at night. " On the night preceding the first of April, he was unusually disturbed, and walked the house 1 continually. Iu the morning he walked out into the orchard near the house and cut his throat, severing the windpipe, and making a ghastly wound. His son followed him, anxious respecting his state of mind, and found him lying upon the ground, apparently dying. The old gentleman was removed to the house and a physician called, who ascertained that the prin cipal veins were not severed, but considered that his death must ensue in a few hours. He continued to live however, without taking a particle of nourishment, for three weeks and lour days, when one of the family, responding to his entreaties for food, gave him a piece of potatoc which she was preparing for the table, lie held it in his mouth for a while, but was unable of course, to swallow it. This seemed to satisiy his immediate craving, and the expe riment was repeated. " A few days afterward, he said he would like to get up and sit at the table with the family at dinner, and was assisted to do so. A little clam soup, ot which he was very fond, was given him and a small portion may have found its way into his stomach-the greater part, however, ozed out of the orifice in the neck, which never clueed up entirely. 8ome three weeks since. Dr. Hazeltino. assisted by Dr. Moore, of this city inserted a tube into the gullet, through which liquids were conducted into the stomach and this appeared to revive his wasting strength .. he has never exhibited any great desire to live, and had prepared his mind for the great change, which was evidently approaching This singular case has appeared to call for more than usual mention, and we have accordingly stated it at some length. ,h~ y\"*lr'aT ArrARiriox.-In Wisconsin, in flu midst of the terrible storm which prevailed oil ^ r r*>1 s,mie of the residents on the line of the Heloit and Madison Railroad heard, at midnight, the very unusual sound of a railway train thundering along the track froui ^eir beds, and looked out into the darkness, and the lightning revealed to their astonished eyes glimpses of a baggage car and two passenger cars rushing by without locomotive or tender, and not a soul to be seen on board. Occurring at tho time when the fierce storm, with its heavy thunder and lurid lightning, was prevailing, the event assumed to many minds a supernatural character, and there were those even who longed for the day to come with trembling hearts, for all must be aware that superstition and credulity are not jet banished from the earth It was just the night for such a thing to happen, according to a I the established rules laid down for ghosts and demons to indulge their fearful revels. in the morning, a locomotive containing an engineer and conductor came quietly by, and the people learned that the cars they had seen Th*t h 1 il,,g m?re nor ,eM than runaways. veu 8Un,d'nS on tljc track at Fort Villc , the high Wind had started them; as they S? ?? a grade, all attempt to stop theni. ^hevC? ? g'?t under way, was useless; and with ?Tn!i '"J5 alm,K the "Alined rails 2m?!

In referring to^^BC the receipts of Teas in this country for one rrr I* year up to 3??th ultimo, it says they will be 12.- WP pounds short of the Imports of the year end ing June 3i, 1836, and that ? The advance m biack teas. Oolongs, since last peeetntier, has lieen til teen cents per pound; and \ ounn H)nn Teas, of low and medium grades, have experienced an advance of one hundred per cent, over last sr*aaon'* closing prices. "It will thus l>e seen that the strong and rapid advance in the tea market has been the result of ? short supply and active demand ; but when it isia>n sidcred that we may hear at any moment of the en tire suspension ol shipmenu at Shanghai, and. in fact, that, as soon as a sufficient force from England arrives at the seat of war, all hve ports of entry iu China, will prohably lie placed under strict Mockade, it would not tie surprising to see Teas at a much lusher figure than they have yet attained."
