Such a thing, in the advanced state of science may be possible —we doubt it, however: Among all the marvela of mechanical j ingenuity wliicb arc being daily brought to perfection none are more interesting 2 than those which aim at the accomplish ment of come task apparently r quirine intellect, in addition to mere mechanical ■ dexterity, for its execution. It is difficult j |n contrive a mechanical operation which requires a greater exercise of intellect than that of verbatim reporting by means of short-hand. Yet even this art aeeius like ly. before long, to be supplanted. For several years a French savau, M. L Scott, haa been engag'd in experiments on (he fixation of sound upon a prepared tablet, in the same way as photography fixes luminous images; and haa met with con siderable success in this new art, which he haa named Fbonautography. At the last sitting of the French Academy of Science, | abort communication wag made by the discoverer, in consequence of the publication of some experiment! in the same direction made by other gentlemen. This communication was devoted chiefly to a description of certain illustra tions laid Injure the members, and would be unintelligible to the general reader without the diagram and a knowledge of i what had pro iously been accomplished . by Mr. Bcolt. The subject, however, j being of immense importance, and likely now to attract great attention, and having j ourselves watched its development for ■ several years, as well as having had many opportunities of inspecting the phono-; graphic representations of sound qpto grapbieally recorded by Air. Scott's in flrument, a short account of what Las al ready been done by this physicist will per haps be considered of interest. The problem which first required solu tion was the igrtificial construction of an ear, by meant of tubes and diaphragms, aoas to imitate, us nearly as possible, the kumpw cur i its power of ooileeting sound* of ovory degree of Intensity, and transmitting them to a. delicate membrane placed at the extremity. After numerous cuaays an apparatus was constructed which ! possessed the above qualifications; the | membrane was seen to vibrate visibly, and b a different manner, with each audible sound Ssts; anil if a pen or style were i fastened to this membrane its point would trace the wonderfully beautiful and com-1 plicated curves and circles appertaining to ; the elements of sound. The next difficulty consisted in finding naaasitivo surfoee upen which this style couhi tench the imprint of its movements; lor the vibration* of the aerial pen were so .delicate that if any appreciable force were required to effect the transcription, the resistance would at ocoo stop all move-j snout. This difficulty was at last over- j sms by employing a atrip of thin paper. I S Which wan deposited a film of lamp ohfsiaod foam the smoko of burning bodice. T%pa sensitive sorfooe is carried along by clock-work agency, in front of the vibrating style, so (hat the successive movements of the latter shall not impinge un the ethos, when the result is a aeries of lines written on the paper, composed of the-swat complicated systems of curves.

Rapidly -spoken parts! have the ! curves crowded together whilst in others j they are widely separated, i The lond tones of the voice arc shown by the writ ten waves rising to perhaps half an inch or more, in height, whilst the |low tones are not more than the eighth qf an inch high; the modulations of the voice arc thus shown very beautifully by | the vary- j ing height of what may be icallcd the letters of souud. DimeiLTV IN Tims, then, the problem of tlto graphic t fixation of sound may be considered as • accomplished; but. now a newj difficulty \ arises—that of translating these ever-vary ing curves back again into (U-djnary lan guage. If each word or syllable, or even ! I compound sound, of wh*ch our spoken i language is built up, were iu variably rep rewenfed by the same system of curves, 1 . the work of transcription would; be coin- | ! parativoly easy. This, however, is far ; from being the case. Not only) does the' impression vary with the tune of; the voice,! the rapidity or loudness of utterance, but ; it has been found (hat the samej words ut tered by one person are written) down by i I lie instrument very differently i from the | way they are when spoken l>y another; just as the hand-writing of one person dif fers from another. This, howqvcr, is a difficulty which will be overcome by prac- 1 tice, and perhaps improved imtruuiental arrangements; even imw we heal that Mr. ' Scott is attaining some facility itj rending off these natural stenographs, The difti eulties, however, in the way of fluent transcriptions into written language arc very great, a* the student in this new 1 language has so many different iritis pro- j sent ml to him as the equivalent for the I same articulated sound; the Inn ings not 1 being cither a true synthesis of tl ic words, or a purely conventional sign liki writing, which has, let us remember, no ihcnome nal value, but in merely, to use a niathc ! malieal expression, a function of the tone, 1 the intensity and the pitch. I The fact of being able to mak j spoken j ! sounds record themselves permanently on| j paper, is of itself most singular and astus-1 ; tailing; but if it is ever developed, as the I 1 inventor says it shortly will be, to suffi | cicut perfection to enable it to take down speeches which may be written of verba tim, it is difficult to imagine thi impor tance of the discovery, whether it be in I respect to the unimpeachable acciracy of the process; the entire absence oi trouble i and expense in reporting any irticulutc I sounds; or the great saving of ;he time‘ and ike exhausting labors of ou r parlia mentary reporters.

Why. of c*rtain steam boat or army engineers, who did not be- j lieve Mr. Perkins could do what he said i lie could, because ho had never seen it ac j couiplished. Steam can be worked prac ; tically and safely up to J.OUO lbs. to the square inch, and is worked up to half that ! every day in Mr. Perkins' Steam Works. ;in Regent square, London. The theoreti cal engineer, or artillerist, will tell you | that gunpowder has a pressure far greater l at the time of ignition than steam has, i hut be forgets that almost the entire mo mentum of the ball from a fire-arm i* giv -1 en it at the rime and in the space that the i powder lakes to burn, while steam is ex i erting an equal force the whole length of , the barrel while the missile is being pro-. . jected. Mr. Pci kins declares that he is able, and will willingly undertake to throw a solid bull or a shell, with a steam gun, from an ordinary war ship into a fortified town five miles distant. 1. The Perkins steam gun will fire from ten to sixty hall* a minute, and can he kept going night and day, as long as the , ammunition bolds out, or during the plea sure of the engineer. 2 The steam gun will have an affective range equai to that of the iuo.-t efficient Armstrong or Width worth rifled gun, throwing bulls accurately from four to . six miles. 3. Any rifled barrel, the most efficient in use or that can be made—Armstrong’s Whitworth's, Wheatley’s, James’, Par rot’s, or any other—with any description of bullet that can be u>cd tu fire-arms. I can be connected with the proper steam i boiler ami wed as a steam gun. 4.

Nothing is required except the rifled 1 j barrels, the steam power, the solid or' lexplosive missiles, two or three men to at tend, and a hopper to pour in the balls. j 10. On hoard ship, in a fort, or in the field, there are no powder magazines, caissons, or ammunition wagons or box- i es to be blown up, or create alarm orj danger of explosion, this calamity often causing the entire destruction of the i vessel and all on board, or destroying the 1 fives of all within reach. 11.

A moment after, perceiving that it was fresh, he removed the Getourai’s hat and ask'd the cause of its ap|carauec. — “It is nothing.

Jackson of the Confederate Army who , distinguished himself at Manassas: | Thomas J. Jackson is a native of Lev- < ; ia county, Virginia, and a relative of the ; numerous and influential family of his name in that portion of the State. By I the death of both his parents, at an ear ly a ge. he was thrown penniless upon j the world. Whvu yet quite young, he exhibited a manly self-reliance, and an energy and a force of character, which i gave his friends a satisfactory assurance !of the success that wa* in store for him in after life. Through the aid of gentle-] men who took s deep interest in bis wel fare, he entered the Military Academy 1 at West Point, as a Cadet, about the year i 1843, aud graduated with high honors | just at the beginning of the war with I Mexico. During the whole of the term ; spent at West Point, he never failed upon an examination or received a mark of demerit. Young Jackson entered the service of the United Ft itcs as Brevet Lieutenant | under Gen. Scott, at Vera Cruz. In the j memorable campaign from Vcru Cruz to Mexico he achieved honors of which a vctercan officer might well have been proud. In addition to hi* regular promo tions during that campaign, Lieutenant Jaeksou was brevetted a Major fur dis tinguished services at the battle of Che pultepec. At the close of the war with Mexico, Major Jackson returned to his native Ftutc, with his health very much impaired, in consequence of which he resigned his position in the army. He shortly after wards accepted a prbfessorship in the Military institute at Lexington, which office ke filled with ability and distinction I till the comincnccincut of the present war, when he accepted the post of Colonel, | conferred upon him by Governor l^ctchcr, : unanimously recoin mended by the Coun cil, and unanimously continued by the Convention. He was omgnri to the command of our fortes at Harper’s Ferry, aud continued in it till he was supers.ded by General Johnston. He then took com mand of a brigade, aud was subsequently appointed a Brigadier General by Presi dent Davis. During the manoeuvres of the army in ihe valley of Virginia, Gener al Jackson held a conspicuous position, ! and in the great battle of Manassas he) earned an mGable alid UeVer-dying dis-; tinetion. Ills command acted a part in ! (iiat memorable eng: gement which will not be forgotten w hile deeds of valor ( and self sacrifice are remembered by the people of Virginia and of the Confederate States. In person, General Jackson is near six feet high, with an erect, muscular, well knit frame. He has a fine eye, brown hair and a full beard. His whole bear ing indicates a man of iron will and stern courage, and marks him a* one peculiarly , “fitted to command.” ——— •#**- ■ The Confederate Flag. A correspondent of the Charleston' Mi rr n ri/ thus suggests a change ia the! Hag of the Southern Confederacy : Wo believe wc q-eak the sentiments of [ three-fourths of the Southern people, when we state that the Confederate flag has not: only failed to satisfy, but has greatly disappointed them. The idea of u com-' miltee having been occupied for weeks in ; composing or selecting from a hundred i ditient specimens, a flag to he at once' original and striking, fi*lly rejecting all i assistance from artists and cthirs, who Lad fi rni-hed al ld lance o' good materia), aud adopting, as the result l of their labor, what?—the in ion and three mtrijn* of Lincoln's abolition flag. Mr. Ru>mll, in one of his letters, has well styled it “the counterpart of the U. 8. Flag,” and so perfectly is it so, that in a calm at sea it is nut distinguished from it. But not only is it stolen from the U. S. Flag, it is also a tfieft of the coat of arm of another despotiMn—wc mean the House of Austria, whose arms are red,’ with a white bur running through the centre. Nor is this ail. 'ihe IJ. 8.

Now, if the j coat of arms of the Confederate Btatcs be drawn with three bats horizontal, we pil fer the arm* of the House of Austria; and if wc adopt the plan of the United Flutes, aud draw the coat of arms with the 1 at* jnijtemliruJ.ir, we pilfer lha arms of the loan of Beauvais, in France. 8o that., whichever way we twi*t it, we will be laughed al by everybody, and despised by | those whose emblems we have borrowed, not to say stolen \Ve are living a Provisional Government—may we not hope that this may he also a Provisional 1 flag ?

The hut lis built on the top of four bamboos, from fifteen to twenty feet high, and as the ti ger cannot climb these, the two men can remain in it and watch their snares in ; safety. The snare consists of large leaves, and sometimes pieces of paper, about six inches square, covered on one side with a substance of the same nature as bird , lime, and containing a poison, the smal lest particle of which, getting into the an , imal’s eyes, causes instant and total blind ncss - * * They arc laid about thickly, with the bird-limed side upwards, in the track of u . tiger ; and as surely as the animal puts his paw on one of the treacherous leaves be | becomes a victim; for finding it stick to his fu”t, he shakes it; he then pronably rubs his paw over his head, in the attempt to rid himself of these leafy incumbrances, but they stick to his head and face ; ho then perhaps roIU himself on the ground, when he becomes fairly covered; ami while scratching himself to get free, some of the poisonous bird-lime gets info his eyes and blinds him.
