That the readers of tbe Hskild may Snow who tbe heads of the expedition are, the following brier ketches wlU serve ae an Introduction to etch, and may be rend with Interest at thte time FKOF. S. F.

There are, however, tome circumstances conoested with his lavenliua which are of such particular Interest at Ihli Ume as t) justify a relation of them here, although they have already appeared in the Hanaro, aod may atltl be fkmlltar to many ef Ita readern. Before, however, entering into these, u may be well to stale a few Mots la connection with the earlier Ufa of l'rofeesor Morse. It Is not, perhaps, generally known that at tbe lime be invented the magneto electric telegraph he was engaged in tbe active partull of Bis profession as aa artist, In which he had obtained e high reputation for tome original works. He waa a sculptor aa wall m a painter, act his modal of the Dylig Hercules, which wee made In England la Uu year ISIS, gained for blm Ute hi;-heal medal of the Adolphi HocMty of Arts. This model wee Intended simply aa a copy from which Is paint his picture or the earns subject ?ework cf art which reoetved at the time the greatest praise, and which was selected from anions the Irst for particular noUce>y tbe critics.

This gentleman la one of the pr.nn'pai electricians of the Alias tlo Telegrapb Company, and la deservedly distin , galabed among Ibe prominent aclentlfio men or the age fir the many Important Improveinnnti which be bta effected In schwa-ine telegraph Ictlrimenteand submarine telegraph leg. Be has also seen one of the most active promoters of the oimpany, and to his energy and enterpriae lie organization nnd aucceaa up to the present I.me la to be greatly at trlbated. He waa originally a pbya!dan,but hie devotion to thle par>tcul&r branch or acienie led him to abandon the practise or his j rofostlcn, and to apply hinwelfevclu slvoly to electric telegraphing He hae applied himself particularly to txperlmenla having In view the invention of an Instrument by which to ascertain and register the velocity 01' electric cm rente through submarine cab lee, and the reanft of which has been the production of a remarkably Ingenious and compact machine, by meant of wblch the possibility of transmitting mersagni through two thousand five hundred mil's has been provtd ao conclusively as tr pat a', rest all denbis thai might bavo been entertained upon the subject. The Instrument by which the spred ot the 'lightening'' Is calculated, is a triplicate Morse registering machine, upon which marks are made by means of an aatronomloal clock or pendulum, and by which signal* are pro dnnrd on the rntsrlng of Ibe current into and lti nsiraee out of the wire, rhiwlnir the retardation ' of tbo lost rnrrrat In gotr.g through great lengths. This li accomplished by pendulum arrangement, boating ?cron( 8 and mating ma> kg on the upper pert of a atrip of Hera* registering paper, the middle marking slyle or electric ren being connretcd with tbe noar end of the cabin, and tbo t?n?tr m r-j lo b< i og connected with tbe dla'ait eu 1. On corrent being sent Into tbe wire it reglatere lta pierage Immediately on tbe middle ityle, and, coming out ol tbo wire, ihowa Ha ptaiage by-eglaierlng on tbe lower part of the atrip of ptpor By thta meant tbo Telocity of die current peering through tbe cable am he adalaled la the thousandth put of a second. It alto abowa tbo regie fatton of tba pan age or tbe o irrent through tbe wire. Tbe magnetometer <r Or. Wbitehmiae la anmotlmoe p aced in connection with the distant end or tho nable, and shows tho rorce or working value of tbe current after paailng through groat lengtba. This la effected by aa electromagnet, through which the current pa wet, and on lta magnetization lifting weights proportionate to tbe strength of the current, the weights being placed on n lever. The Instrument which Or. W has bad made for telegraphing through the Allan tic eabie a composed principally or very powerful oatte nca, having a supo> tidal surface or area of thirty-six thousand square Inches of silver, n corresponding an-face of zinc, and induollon coils of separable helices, having great lengths of wire wound upon them By the action of the two metala in combination currents of electricity cf extra ordinary power are generated and traoamitted through tho wire. Some idea o- the power or those cerronis mag be conceived from the fact that a (park or (lame ous luih long and of a second's duration can bo obtained by ompietlng tbe circuit.
