First, In regard to the "alow barge," which evidently meant the application of at'-sm to the propulaton of steam boats; secondly, that the allusion to the "rapid car" referred to the use of the same power in driving the railroad locomotive; and mtly, that the same or a similar motor would give motion to the -'flying chariot through the fields of air." Dwelling for a moment on tb? literal fulfilment of the two first predictions, aa exhibited la the ateamahip and railroad locomotion, the lecturer remarked that it only remained to verify the last part of this remarkable prophecy in practical aerial loco mo non oy man, giving U aa bis firm belief that this could be accomplished by meana of wings, and only by that meana He next gave a brief description of his invention for that purpose, showing the three leading features of hisblan, founded upon his new theory of tbe flight of birds?all of which were shown to approach very closely to tbe general conditions of nature?and thatsucn approximation, In auch an undertaking, was a desideratum Proceeding la this manner, the lecturer then went into an explanation of his theory of tbe flight of birds, requesting his audience to bear in mind tbat what he should say upon this subject, respecting tbe laws and process of flight proper, was or would be true of his project for Imitating those animals on the wing. And afttr making a brief statement of tbe leading features of the subsisting or populsr theory of the flight of birds, and druvin? its truth, and the correctness of the mode of investigating this subject heretofore, be laid down the following proposition! as the basis f bis theory and arguments, viz: First. That the Influence of gravitation is the primary and efficient cause of the progression of birds on the wing. Second. That the wings in flight are exerted vertically, the chief effect of which It to raise and sustain the animal In the air. Third. That the velocity attained in flight proper is Incidental, and that it equalises the power exerted In Imparting motion to the wings In proportion to tbe weight carried with that employed by all other animals In ttieir respective mod is of loromotton on tbe earth and In the water. The several propositions were argued at considerable length, In tbe order of their statement, the lecturer very forcibly showing their truth and logical dependence, by a constant reference to the flight of birds, as exhibited In their motions around us in the air, by a large diagram, containing a variety of those animals on tbe wing, and also bv a spread eagle, kindly loaned him by the officers oI the Smithsonian Institution. The entertainment was rertalnly a great norelty in Washington, as it would be in any part of this country or me worm; ana 11 may be juitly regarded, we think, as the beginning of a new era in the investigation of the nitherto perplexing subject of aerial locomotion by man.
