[Prom the London Newt, 1th lpst ] We regret to announce that the first attempt to launch this great Leviathan has been a fail ure. To understand what has been done, it is necessary first to describe the preparations which were msde to insure suoua&s. These preparations may be divided into two classes? the means to restrain her motion in case her movement into the water was too rapid, and the apparatus used to start her off or to accele rate her descent if found too tardy. All the props or stays which supported the'great ship while she was building being removed, she rest ed on two huge cradles, placed about 150 feet apart, and at equal distances from her centre. These cradles were faced at the bottom with iron plates; these iron plates rested freely on iron rails placed parallel to each other, at a distance of about a foot and a half, and firmly bolted to two platforms of wood, each forming a slope or inclined plane of about one inch iu twelve. The cradles maybe regarded as two iron-shod sledges, which were intended to slide down the surface of the rails of the two slopes called ways, bearing with them the ship into deep water. Toe groat novelty of this arrangement did not consist in intending to launch the ship side ways. for this has been done again and again in India and America with groat success. The unified part was the one ot two iron surfaces in contact while sliding the ship into the water. Hitherto, greased wood has been used for this purpose, sufficient amount of grease being ap plied to prevent the weight of the ship squeez ing it out so as to brinz the surfaces of the naked wood together, in point of fact, the friction down the slope Is usually that of a greased surface in contact with grease. Now the retardation produced by this id well known. It it a matter of experience that if the slope l>? made t in 24 the ship will not more: if 1 in 12 it will?a lirti* too last, perhtps, but this over speed can readily l?c herkea by mechanical appliar-?s The "beb*-Hbrof the iron slodge in contact with iron waj unknown, and therefore there were no data for the inclination of the slope, when these two metals were in contact. Tuff same sloie was used which waa known to be suoceasful for greased surfacesof wood. Any diflerence in the friction of the two was sought to be compensated for by giving the rails a good coating of black lead, thia substance being u?od frequently as au anti-friciioual medium. Dealing, therefore, with conditions altogether untried in ship launching, it w.ia necessary to make ample preparations for two contingencies ?over speed or too little. The f >rmer was evideutly anticipated. Two huzo drums, like tha windlass of a ship used for nauling in the anchor, were firtuly attached to strong founda tions tixed on piles driven into the earth. Ovor eaoh of these, iron cablej, of the same strength as those intended to bold the monster ship at anchor, were wound round till each drum sup ported sixty tons of cable. One extremity of tha cable passed round each drum was firmly fastened to the cradle, in front of the centre of which it was placed, and the other was fast moored to tho earth. As the ship should move down tha slope, the cables would wind off the drums, and this motion could be instantly checked by afriction band of iron passed round the circumference of two wheels at either ex tremity of the drum. These friction banls could be brought into instant play by means of powerful levers, acting on them so as to bring the r surface into contact with those of the sur faces ot the wheel? attached to the drums. Sufficient mechanical and manual force manned these four levers, to counteract the whole weight of the ship, so as to hold her still mid way during her descent, if necessary, provided only the oables refuted the tension brought to bear oa them. We must notice in passing, that these friction drums and wheels had winches, eog-wheels, and other machinery at tached to one extremity, which had been u3ed to wind the heavy cables round them. Such were the powerful and well devised means to check any undue speed. To start the cradles in motion, powerful hy draulic apparatus was used, which waa capa ble of acting so aa to push them about three feet forwards. If more force than this were necessary, it waa provided for by three means. A strong cable was parsed round the extremity of the shaft of the Archimedean screw at the afterpart of the ship, carried out into the midst of the river, passed round a block in a lighter, firmly moored, and brought back again to the shore, where a small stationary steam engine waa placed to haul it in, and bring any reasonable amount of pressure to bear upon it. Another steam engine and similar apparatus was u??i fer a cable firmly fixed to the bow of the ship. Lastly, cables were fastened to the middle of the ship, and carried out to four lighters moored in mid river, with mechanical apparatus on board tbeaa, weil-mauned. to drag ts? centre of the ship forward if necessary. Having now uude our readers acquainted with the mechanical appliance* used, we shall proceed to narrate the history of the davs pro ceedings. The river was crowded with "craft of every description, weighed to the water's edge with living freight Every available spot on both aides of the river, where a glimpse of the ship eould be caujht was filled with expectant spectators. About lo clock the excitement of all was raised to the highest piteh. The busy group of industrious laborers, who had been ?Q bleekleading the rails of tha ways with brushes and paint pots, began to dimin ish A few were left, scattering masses of powdered blackiead, like s.ind At length these retired- All seemed ready; but two men remained, one on eaoh way, standing near a rope ladder, by means of which they might e?:ape into the ship as soon as the cradle should reach the water A young gentleman took his place go a Ligh platform, erected near the after pa. tof the ship, with his theodolite duly placed, to mark the motion of the ship. The tide is rashina ic. but it has yet only covered half the slope or the ways. The shout is heard 4-she moves!*' and *o she does?the aft part faster, however, than the fore Her speed is instantly eheckel, and she is still. Xow, each anxious spectator oongratulates his neighbor. She glides beautifully dowa? the is under control; surely all is well, and the attempt will be a triumphant success. Alas, soon toe rumor is pasaed along that the motion w? premature?that it has been ohecked by a aad accident. As the ? in or two of tho cable rcuad the drum, placcd to check the motion of the after cradle gave to the movement of the ship, the winch-handles, attached to its gear, revolved with frightful velocity, hurling five unfortunate men into the air, and nattering broken cog-wlteo4a among the crowd Three of jbsse unfortunate men, we regret to hear, were severely ir.iered. Thts i? a sal damper; nevertheless Mr Bru nei aud other officials are seen examining the ways The fore-cradle is found to have ad vanced three feet forward, the aft one about four feet six inches All era still sanguine We wait but for high wafer. An hour's anx iou* watching, aud the tula covers the ways and rearbaa nearly to the keel of the ship. The laborers are all eugaged ia the four lighten tutored opposite tha iai Ml a of tha ship, tau tening the cables attached to them. Their work is either fruitless or considered ao, and a steam tug removes all the lightms out of the expected way of the ship Signals are made, the fixed steam engines draw in the eablea attaeWl to the foe and aft of the ship. The eablea tauten, but the hnge monster stirs ,not. A suan, followed by a whirl and burr is beard, and the <*abieattached to the forepart of the ship is broken simultaneously with the*>g wbeab of the steam engine working ic It be eemos too evident now that all hope of moving the sMp is over for the day. The spaeia'ors who had stood in the rain, whieh had been falling heavily for the la*t hour, moodily disperse to Inquire into and speculate upon the causes af failure ><e Wave <wr own crude notions on the si b jeot. When lirst the ship moved, the ways ware well sovtred wito blackiead When she re fused to siir. in spite of all the forea made to urge her passage down the slopes, the tide had washed most of the lubricating materials from the iron rails. Far more powerful apparatus was used to check her motion than to urge it. The latter was inadequate to remove the fric tion of the surface of the two cradles on those of the rails of the way*- The friction of iron on iron is ver7 great flow great was well proved by that exerted by the bite of the iron rings on the surfaces of the wheels of the drums for checking the descent of the vesul. AX IGNORANT NONSTABLE. An interior paper is following up a Justice of the Peace in its vicinity with a great deal of pertinacity. Whenever Anything unusual oc curs in bis court, the editor reports it at full length. The other day a jury trial wu to take place before him. and eleven jurors had been empaneled, when the constable ot the eourt pushed forward the twelfth, a long legged slab sided specimen of humanity, who was addressed by his honor with all the familiarity of an old acquaintance. "Get up thar, Aleck, and let's conclude this oaso." Aleck hesitated and looked steadily at the Justice. 44 Come, come ! ' continued the latter impa tiently. "It's no use; you can't get off; I don twa red on excuse ; so up with you !" Aleck, seeing it was little use to talk hung his head and made a step toward the vacant ftmong Jar7. muttering as he tnored, ?? The court might let a feller play his handout, anyhow .'" "The court might do what ?" shouted the Justice fiercely. " W hy. all 1 have to say is," promptly re turned Aleck, " that it's rather hard to make a filler lay his baud down to set on a jury." Then, as a "clincher," he inquired with great feeing, "flow would your Honor like it?7, Tue Justice looked serious Calling the con s able to him. and asking a few questions in a low tone, he addressed himself dircctly to Aleck: Aleck, I jest digkiver that when the con stable served the summons 'pon you. th*r was a ni??j gauio of "draw' - going on in Beck's tav ern. ' 44 A tip-top game your Honor," said Aleck, brightening up; "had as good a thing as I wanted. ' "What did you have. Aleck,'' continued the Justioe, " when you laid your hand down to serve on the jury." " A beautiful 'full,' your Honor " The Justice becamedeeply interested. Wiping ?. Pe.rsP'r*tion from his face, and looting Aleck in the face, he continued : "Does this ere court understand you to say 5^!, ? ??nstable tuck you away from a good 'full to set on a jury ?" Aleck bowed in the affirmative. 44 And you told the constable what you helt7 441 did, your Honor." ' And he jerked you away from the table, and left nobody to be on your hand ?" Again Aleck answered in the affirmative. The court took ? long breath and then re sumed its questions under greater excitement than ever. y?u deal them keards that round . heAln't aP in<!?iri?g,7 and replied that The Justice drew back, entirely overcome with the strength of Aleck s excuse. Constable." said he, elevating himself high in the chair, "this ere court is half a mind to find you for eonttmpt. By bringing this man here you have, perhaps, broke up a snug little game of 'draw,' and spiled a first-rate ull when he had the dealing of the keanls r^und the table ! It s the m^at exasperating' ?"f Then, rising to his feet with a dignified air, he shouted. "Aleck, you're Juror**'1! CocsUljIe' Sire mo another Aleck vamosed to continue his snug little game of ?? draw, while another was ushered into tbejuror'j seat without even a hearing Au interesting case for damages, has just been tried in the District Court, at Pittsburgh, wherein a young lady. Miss Lucy Morgan, was plaintiff and James Gosling, the well known dry goods merchant, of Market street, defend ant I t appeared that the young lady, who was in the habit of dealing at the store, took away a pair of corsets, with the understanding that if trie article did not suit, it should be sent back A short time after, Mr. Gosling saw Miss Mor gan in an omnibus, on her way to the Eastern ears, and supping, not knowing her. that she intended to defraud him, used very insulting language, and accused her of stealing. Miss Morgan told him that the corset did not suit apd was even then on its way back from he^ father s house to his store. But this did not satisfy the defendant, and he continued to in sult the lady. A friend of the young lady re monstrated and offered to pay the merchant the pr?oe demanded When Gosling reached the store, he found two little girls there, sisters of the young lady, wbo had been sent back with the eorsets. After the ladj returned from her vijit. ihe brought suit to recover damages ?as* tained by her reputation for honesty being as sailed in the public street. The jury found a ?ordiet in her favor of $1306. Puaxr Sc?w? IK Bosto*.?A military or ganisation ooaposed of colored residents, com manded by Louis Gaul, and entitled the "Lib erty Guard," made their first public appear ance yesterday with 29 musketa. and Bond's Cornet Band. They had no uniform, but their civic dress was tidy and becoming. They have never received a charter, and it was under stood they were allowed to appear in our streets with firearms by a special permit from the proper municipal authorities. When they marebed up 8tate street at 3* o'clock yester afternoon, there had assembled an immense number of persons?crowding the thoroughfare to an unusual extent It was with much diffi culty, and only by the aid of the police, that they made their way through the street, the orowd pressing hard, and exhibiting much dis satisfaction at the spectacle, by hissing, hoot ing and yelling. They weathered the storm however, and oontinued their march through the principal avenues of the city. There were several disagreeable occurrences however, and when in the vicinity of Charlos street, the crowd became very turbulent. Lieutenant Williams received * severe blow from a heavy missile, whereupon the company rallied and drove their assailants upon the Common ? B jitou PoU, 1 Ith. tJT One of the unposted up guests at the Girard, the other day, having taken possession of his room?Iocked it up to go out into the city, and leaving the key at the bar, told Chadwick with grwat simplicity 44 not to wait dinner for him." And we believe that 44 Chad" didn't?least ways " it s so reported." That same character once stopped at the Aster House, where they put him up, of course, under the roof, and two 1 iu a room.
