IT7*SINGLE COPIES ONE CENT. AMERICAN SHIP-Gt'NNERY. The I". S. corvette Plymouth. (says a late London paper.) which has been lying in South ampton water for the last few weeks. will, it is expected. take her departure thence in a few dayi. Her commander. Captain DahlgTen. the inventor of the monstergun that hears his ntnto. ha* been visiting the gunnery establishments of thia country, where he has received the most courteous attention from the various authori ties Capt Hewlett, the head of tbe gunnery establishment on board her M ijeaty's ship Ex cellent at Portsmouth, has paid a visit to tbe Plymouth, and minutely inspected everything ?n board of her. He appeared particularly pleased with the new and improved small fire arms The officer* of her Majesty's ahip Me lamput. lying in Southampton water, have alao \tailed the Plymouth. On Tuesday last, souie experiments were made with the small flre arrna on board the corvette, before a party of viaitore from Southampton. Tbe rapidity and accuraoy with which these arms can be fired are extraordinary. The most prominent im trovementa in these instruments of warfare are nown as Maynard's, Perry's, and Sharp's pa tent*. thepo being the names of throe American inventors. Inoneof tbe carbines tbe fore-fin ger moves a spring, and the chamber for the cartridge is exposed, which having been filled, a spring ia moved again, and the chamber is covered; a primer, which corresponds with the percussion cap, is forced out. and the gun is ready for firing. This primer, which is ingeni ously concealed, is rolled round like tbe rnain apring of a watch, and lasta a longtime In another carbine, the chamber for the cartridge is lifted out of its psoition. upwards; it is then loaded, and on being forced again into proper position, a spiral spring, in connection with a concealed row of caps, ia touched, and the gun ia primed. The ramrod is. of course, done away with by these inventions. There are wveral improved naval and military muskets on board the Plymouth. In one of the bayonets, when taken from the musket, is a very handy and formidable abort sword. The King of Portugal was so pleased with the boat-howitzers on board the Plymouth when that ship visited Lisbon that he ordered some like >hem. with a alight modification, to be manufactured. Such is the rapidity with which these howitzers can be fired, that three balls fired successively from one gun have been in motion at the same time The boat carriages of these howitzers exhibit some improvements of Capt. Dahlgren. Some interesting experi ments have made on board the Plymouth, on ropes, cablet and cordage Some of the ropes are made of American cotton, others of Manil la, of Swedish and of American hemp The cotton ropes aro remarkable for their softness and flexibility, and. what it very singular, they are found not to imbibe more moisture than rojKM made of a much harder material, and it ;s believed they are e^ual to the latter in streugth ai.d durability. Metallic blocks for tbe cordage to run up>>n are used for va rious pur poa?s on board. The monster gun of the Plvuiouth weighs 16,0<>0 pounds avoirdu pois. It ia covered with a coating of Vermil lion and beeswax, and therefore has a red in stead of tbe usual black appearanco of ships guas. The heavy Dahlgren guns have two vents, whieh facilitate their rapid and safe firing. The weight of each shell tney discharge is about 13> pounds, and that of each solid shot is 170 pounds. The sound of the shell and shot traversing a distance of three miles, is lost in the enormous space which it traverses. One peculiarity of the Dahlgren guu is it? enor mous strength and thickne&s where tbe great est force <t the powder is expended. In ex periments made to test the strength of the^e uns one of them had been fired of nearly .000 times, with a large proportion of solid shot. without bursting. Capt- Duhlgren is of Swedish origin. Thb PariKR M.uhe Aut ?It was towards the close of the last century that iron tea-trays began to be imitated or superseded by papier mache. and from tbeee trays has gradually sprung up an important department of industry, in which the city of Birmingham, England, ex cela all other places. The true papier mache. that which was introduced about thirty year* ago. and from which such a woudrous variety of decorative ornament* ia produced, it almost entirely paper; there may be a small percent age of other material to impart certain minor qualities, but it ia essentially paper, of any and every detcription. The usual kind of pa pier macbe is a pastelike mass farmed of paper pulp, and pressed in moulds to aity desired form Tbe paper, be it what kind it may, or of aa many different kinds as it may. is mois tened. an 1 chopped and minced, and routed about until it becomes a perfectly homogeneous mass of pasta, or rather a mass having a con tittency like that of dough or of putty. A trifling portion of other substances is then in troduced, but not sufficient to change the gen eral character of tbe mass as a paper substance Then comes the moulding or pressing The material ia too thick to be poured into a mould like plaster of Paris, or like moulten metal; it it pressod into flattish moulds, like clay, com poeition. or gutta percha. Apiece it cut off, about enough for the article to be made; it is pressed well into the mould, a counter mould is placed upon it. and tbe toree of a powerful press is brought to bear upon it. to as to drive the material into every minute crevice of the moulJ. A knife is employed to dexuerousiy loosen the paper at tbe edges ; tbe greased state of tbe mould allows the paper to be re in >ved from it Then the imperfections are re moved, and the adornments are put on. How tri Lamks 1>re*s m Kashas.?A Kan?-is letter writer, who recently came down tbe Missouri on the ?teamer Omaha, aaya : At Atchison we took on a young Kan.-as belle, whose only attendant wa? a young Missouri btood. The young l^dy was apparently dieted in tbe latest agony of style aud fashion?the etiasle straw hat?the innumerable flounces and wide-spreading hoops of her gay striped ?ilk dresa. set off her commanding figure v?nr graeetuliy. Her stature tall?aa Byron says. I hate a lumpy woman Hut the richest scene in relation to this young belle was behind the curtain, ami is to come yet.

CJF-In India (write* an English correspond ent) with the exception of the tra lesmen and the artisans, every man is a powerful swords man and athlete, and more than a match in a sword eowibat for any British soldier, with the exception of our cavalry and horse artillery, perhaps I have no doubt that in three months 110,99# horsemen could be raised against us lie twe?-n Cape Coin >rin and tbe Sutlej. should this terrible insurrection becoinc general, and that the mutinous sepoys, now in arms agaim>? ut, will in that case be reinforced daily by ex actly tin* same stamp of mcu who fought against us at Plasty. Assayc, and in other well-known fields. In many parts of India every one of the cultivators (at the ptou^h!) may be seen with ?? his sword at his side ; and, moreover, they can all use this weapon with great vigor and deiter-ty. Every man you meet in traveling, particularly those on horseback, is armed witn matchlock. snear, and sword. Ciive, and Wel lesley. and N'apier, fought against no better men.

Thk DrTCHMA* axi> thr. PA*ir.?Everybo ly will remember the ''money panic" they had at Sau Francisco some years since?and the story ?' John Phoenix" used to tell of the effects? individually illustrated. Before the fright, a frugal old Dutchman, by dint of hard labor, bad accumulated some which ha cau tiously deposited in on* of tho banking houses for safe keeping. Ruiuor soon came to his ears that they were not very safe?some said they had '? broke." Next morning, he trem blingly drew his balance aud put the shining g <ld in his pocket. lie breathed decidedly treer, but hera was a dilemma. What sho.il l hw do with it? He did not dare to keep it in his shanty?and as for carrying it about him, 'twas too precious heavy So. after a sleepless night or two?in constant apprehension of bur glars?he deposited it iu another "banking office." Another day?tbe pauic increased? there was a run on his bank?be pushed in? drew his gold?and felt easier once more. Ano ther anxious day and night for his " monish." and again it wus deposited in a safs bank. This time he felt safer than ever before, and went ouietly to his work. But the panic reached that bank, and anxious depositors be sieged the doors. Mynheer heard the news, and put post-baste, book in hand, for tbe scene of action?jammed in with the orowd?drew hi# gold, new and bright?put it safe in his cordu roys?and was happy once more?hot here was the dilemma again?wkrre to put it. lie had gone pretty much the rounds of the banks, and having hud such narrow escapes, could'nt trust them any more. He sat down on a curb stone. and soliloquized thus : '? 1 put mv mon ish in von bank, ven he preak ; 1 put liim in te oder bank, ven ho f>r?ak too; I traw him out; I can no keep hiui to home ; I put him in dis bank, now dis one preak ; vat ta tuyvil shall I do * I take him home and aow him up in my frow's petticoat, and if she prakes I prakes her head !"' , IUohtom Roric.? The Providence Journal copies the statement of tho Tall Hirer Star relative to the l>ighton Rock, recent purchased by Ole Bull, the violinist, and adds : " Every now and then we hear some news about the Ibgbton Rock and its unknown in scription. That any parchment has been dis covered in Norway with a copy of the Digbton inscription on it, is all nonsense; nor 'has it bcon pretty correctly ascertain d that the in scription dates ba^k ks far as the tenth century, and was ruado by some emigrants from Nor way.' The Danish antiquaries claimed for it such an origin, bat their claim was never estab lished. On the ether hand. Mr. Schoolcrnt't. who it* high authority in all that relates to In dian matters, attempts to show that the hiero glyphics on tho bighton R -ck were probably the work of the Indians, and that they had re fcreuac to their hunting scuues.
