On Thursday morning a train of ten Improved freight cars, manufactured at the shops of the Orange and Alexandria KailroadComnanv. mad* a trial trip as far as Springfield. and returned These car* have been built upon an improved plan, designed by Mr Thos Nichols, superintendent of the car shop of the Orange Company. In these cars the usual method of joining the timbers by mortise and tennon is abandoned, and a newly invented plan of joining the timbers by strong cast-Iron braces substituted It has been found by experience that the former method, while it required more work, diminished the size, and consequently lessened the strength of the timber at the precise point where it should be strongest. The mortise likewise, in many instances. formed a receptacle for water, and thus soon rotted, and, under the strain to which cars are subjected, gave way. Under the plan of Mr. Nichols, the iron bands which unite the frame work together require little or no cuttlug of the timber, are not liable to be injured by water, and, of course, never rot. They strengthen the ears very much, and give It a solidity in vain sought for by otber methods Other Improvements have been made to the cars, and they have been made larger than ordinary to accommodate cotton and tobacco freights. Sixteen of the improved cars have already been built, aid a lxri/e nam her will follow live of which are already under the handa of the skilful artisans of tbe car shop.
