XVI. WASHINGTON. D. C.. THURSDAY. JULY 19. I860 N?. 2.314. Irea Brid| i. It is a curious circumstance that the most Faccessful contriver of an iron bridge, and that <>f the very boldest design, was no other than the celebrated Thomas Paine. He was an exciseman, and drew up a petition for an increase of pay. He studied mathematics and mechanics, and became acquainted with Goldsmith and Franklin; the latter persuaded him to go to America. Ac. lie settled down at Philade phia to mechanical and philosophical studies, and speculations on electricity, minerals, ard the use* of iron. In 1787, when a briJge over the Schuylkill was proposed to be constructed I wiinout any river piers, as the stream was apt to b? choked with ice in the spring freshet*, Paine boldly offered to build an iron bridge with a single arch ot 400 feet span The same year we find him at Paris, submitting the plan of his bridge to the Academy of Sciences,who* opinion was decidedly favorable. He sent a copy to Sir Joseph Eftnks, to be submitted to the Royal Society; and he next proceeded to Hotherham Iron Works, in Yorkshire, to have his bridge cast It was a segment of an arch of 410 feet span, and constructed of framed iron panels, radiating towards the centre in the form of voussoirs. An American named W biteaide ad vanced him money on the security of bis property in the States; he was unable to oomplete the castings of the bridge, which were then shipped off to London, and erected on a bowline green at Paddington. There it was visited Dy a large number of persons, and regarded as a great success Whiteside having become bankrupt, Paine was arrested by his assignees, but was liberated by the assistance of two other Americans, who became bail for him When returned from France to America, he in 1803 presented a memoir to Congress on the construction of iron bridges, with several models. It does not appear that be succeeded in erecting hia bridge. In the mean time, however, the bridge exhibited at Paddington produced result?; the manufacturer? agreed to take it back as part of their debt, and the materials were used in the Doble structure over the Wear, at Sunderland, where it was erected in 179?. This bridge was long regarded as the greatest triumph of art. Its span exceeded that of any existing stone arch, being 23ft feet, with a rise of 34 feet, the springing commencing 95 feet above the bed of the river, allowing vessels of 300 tons burden to sail underneath without striking their masts. If," says Mr Stephenson, " we are to consider Paine as its author, his daring in engineering certainly does full justice to the fervor of his political career; for, successful *L ? l * * * i > ? ? ? mo resuu nas unaouoieaiy proved, want ol experience and consequent ignorance of the risk, could alone hare induced so bold an experiment; and we are rather led to wonder at than to admire a structure which, as regard* its proportions, and the small quantity of material employed in iu construction, will probably remain unrivalled.** The Canif of a Catutriphe, Messrs Alexander Houston and M. B. Robinson, who were reported amongst the lost by the recent blowing up of the steamer Ben Lewis, on the Mississippi river, have arrived at Nashville and published the following: "On the 23d of June we made our exit from Memphis, Tenn., and took passage on the ben Lewi*. Quickest of the MississioDi boat* an.) carried the horns, Capt. Hanson being but recently appointed to command her. At the time of our departure we had 65 cabin and 20 deck passengers. A short period only eiapeed when I went below, and what wad my astonishment to find all in the greatest confusion from the escape of steam, caused by an ever-pressure forcing its way through the weak portion of the machinery. This, after great difficulty, was mastered The night of Saturday she ran on her usual time with caution, but as soon as daylight shone on us sped through the water at a dangerous speed. One hundred miles below Cairo we took on two planters with slaves; they soon became alarmed, and asked tha cause of such high pressure and speed of the boat, when the clerk replied that it wad her trial trip, and that she had to this point made oie hour over her time At every landing the s aves were taken to the stern of the steamer* as they would not slacken at such time. Between this point and llickman the guage-cocks of the four boilers marked a great variance, when they should always be kept equal. At Hiokman I had an opportunity of ecu iting the deck hands?36 in number?marching from tha storehouse with boxes of apples. At this point a bet was made between the pilot and the engineer to make the landing at Columbus in one hour and three minutes, a distance of 20 miles, against the strong carrent of the Mississippi; it was lost by one half minute?the quickest run on record at that particular stage of the river. As soon as we touched at Columbus, the engineer of the Cheney, in the vicinity of the Ben Lewis, became alarmed at the state of the boat, said she was under a dangerous bead ot steam, and advised all to leave immediately, a.< she would blow up lie watched her with agony until she disappeared. From this point to Cairo she was likely to explode at any moment, as she trembled like an aspen leaf shaken by the wind. We were so cognizant of her danger that we took our position on the extreme end of the boat, and left her immediately on touching Cairo. A few minutes only elapsed after her leaving when she collapsed, with a A 1 * ? J!.A* 1_1 Li . m ? report, mm was ui-nuguisuauic nve mites distant.'' m * The English Press oh the Pkihce's Visit. All the London papers are commenting on the Prince of Wale?'s contemplated visit to the 1'mted States. One of them, in an article on the subject, has a first-rate notice of the occupants of the "White House," at Washington. The following is an extract: He will learn, too, how cordially he can be received by those who are earnest and hearty republicans; and he will see how complete is the reverence for the law, how willing the COUrtMV accorded U> diitinvuiahuH Knvliah. men. though the forms of government and the marks of social distinction differ so widelj.

On the 4th of July, Prof. Steiner made his 89th ascension in the balloon Europa from Milwaukee. In his account of his voyage he says: "When I had been out forty minutes I was overtaken by a thunder storm, which was moving in an oblique direction to my course, and in an imtant I was surrounded by clouds, it would be utterly impossible to describe the grandeur and beauty of this scene. Its suddenness was startling. The first intimation tbat I hid of its vicinity was on turning my h?ad and seeing a bank of clouds at least 500 feet high, moving toward me with an imprea_ ? _4 i* - 1 kxvo steadiness. 1 Dene ciou'i-i aoon surrounded me on all side*?above,arching themselves into a mighty rotunda, and leaving a space through whicn toe clear blue sky could be seen. Thus abut in, I seemed to be fixed in a tremendous haft of vapor. The lightning darted up and down the sides, and the thunder peal* were laud and continuous. I, however, felt no alarm, knowing that the balloon was a nonconducting substance. Once, while in this situation, I halloed as loud as I could, and the ? ic.viuciauuu ui III V voice ia mis dome almost stunned me. "It was about six o'clock. I did all that was in my power to lighten her, throwing over my grappling irons, and everything of weight? even to my overcoat Cut was all of no avail? down she came; and by the time the storm was over (7 o'clock and 6 minutes.) I struck the lake ton miles from the mouth of the Knlamaxoo river, and nine miles from land. There was not a vessel in sight, and it was impossible for me to reach the land if I parted _:.i L-11 ' 1 .. .. - wmi my oanoon. x Knew mat it 1 could get up 8.000 feet. I could strike an easterly current that would take me ashore, and as this was my only chance. I coolly set about putting it in execution. I immediately got upon the concentration hoop" above the basket.and as the weight of the latter prevented me from unsnapping the cords, I cut them with my pocket knife. The moment she was relieved ? f this weight, she rose, with me sitting on the hoOD. holding the T*lv* rnn? in mv k??J 1 - > o ' " * " t' *** "V " 1 11 three minutes I reached an elevation of 5,000 fee'. In fifteen minutes I was over the beach; tightening my cords. I shot downwards?first perpendicularly, and then (influenced by an under current) slightly in a westerly direction, striking tke water ten feet from the land, and without any difficulty waded ashore." Stk.vm Waco* is Sa.n Frahcisco.?A steam wagon from England, is exhibiting in the street* ot ban Francisco. The Times of tbe 14th ultimo, in describing its workings, says : 41 When fastening was made and the train ready for a start, there was a great number of persons in the heaviest of tlie two trucks, making in all a load of about forty tons. The wheels of this vehicle wore solid, about a foot in width and two in diameter, a size and form very unfavorable for a cobble-stone street, ns was soon seen. The train had barely started when one of these chubby wheels jerkod a number of cobble-stones out of place. The nugvu cuuuuucu lugging iae irucKS along,and the wheels continued to push up several yards of the pavement. This proved the great strength of the locomotive, but showed that cobble-stone streets were not the proper kind of roadfor such a truck and such a load After passing along a rod or two, the crowd having jjmped off the truck, the wagon passed along successfully. It ran intolloward street, where several other trucks with larger wheels were added on. and the train passed on u> Third, thence to South Park, around the eliptical Ereen there, and then along Third back to toward and to the foundry " Tha steam wagon weighs about ten tons. The driving wheels are seven feet in diameter, and made of iron The tires am seven inches wide, and rounded in such a manner as to seize the ground as they revolve. There are four of thea? driving wheels, two side by side, on each tide of tbe wagon, and 80 constructed that onlj one on each side touches the ground except where grades are to be ascended, sand or mud to be crossed, and in all other cases where a great surface of tire may be required 1 Tbe steaming apparatus consists of a pilot wheel, which is plaoed in front of the wagon, and connected with the fore wheels. In other respects the vehicle resembles a locomotive with double engines of about twentj-horse power." A Fourth or Jllv Balloon Trip.?MrJesse Johnson, an aeronaut, mad* an ucensiun in his balloon, tbe Comet, from Syracuse, on the 4th inst. In his account published in the Syracuse Journal, he says : " After attaching the car. and putting aboard a couple of bags of saod, and everything being ready, I took my departure from the beautiful city of Syracuse. The halloon ascended rapidly nearly perpendicular to the altitude of one and a half miles. Unwilling to go further from so lovely a scene, I checked the ascent and slowly retraced my steps until at an elevation sufficient to render the view most impressive, llere I could only regret that I was not possessed of the command of language to describe the beauties beneath me Language is inadequate; it must be seen to be realized. A light haze on the distant horizon prevented me from seeing Cayuga, Beneca, or even Lake Ontario ?I..1.1 V. I --> ? |>|>IU|J, uiuvugu X UUIIUIOU BlgOl BII1B1I IHKtl, ftlainlj to be seen. The appearance of Oneida ake was beautiful beyond description I was particularly struck with the unique appearance of the Salt Works when directly over them. My course from Syracuse wm almost imperceptibly towards the northwest, until I was over Salina lake, when the Comet, as if to have a little fun at the expense of my temerity, suddenly halted, positively refusing to go farther, and commence') descending slowly, as if intent on having a ba*h I oould not think this unreasonable in the Comet, although on my part it seemed quite superfluous, as I had taken a bath io the morning; besides I preferred bathing on the beach to being ducked by the Comet as a boy would drown a kitten." The aeronaut, however, escaped the danger uninjured, and landed in safety. Tbb Wheel or Fobtcni.?Only twenty years ago last November, Louis Napoleon, the nrMcnt Kmn*rnrnf Fpinoa --1 ? [lotel without paying his board bill. In the New Orleans Bee of November 20th, 1839, appeared the following account of the "noble Count's" departure from that city : Count Louis Napoleon Bonaparte, whose arrival in this citj wu announced in several of the papers, has left New Orleans in high dudgeon, and for just reason, lie was yesterday morning informed by the proprietors of the St. Charles Hotel that it waa customary for gentlemen traveling without baggage, (the Count was splendidly provided in that way for a man of his titular dimensions,) to pay for their board in advanoe, whereupon the following dialogue ensued : ?i A tl I. -?? ? m a.- _ m i/uunt?mj name is sumciem guarantee tor cny bill. Publican?Your name, Count, ic a very good one, but won't buy marketing. Count?Make out mj bill. Publican?It shall be done. The olerk thereupon presented the bill made eut in the name of Count L. N. Bonaparte. Mr name," aaid the Count, "is Louie Napo leon Bonaparte. I wish it ao atated in full in the aooouut." A second bill was made oat, and the entire nuue written ent in fair, legible letters.
