Nothing new cndeb the SunI ' Humbolt in his "Cosmos," states that the Chinese had magnetic carriages with which to guide tbimslves across the great plains of Taitarv, one thousand ! years be fore our era, on the principle of the coiipass. The prototype of the gtesim-eneine has been traced to the eoliv-vle of Hero of Alexandria. The Boanars used movable types to mark their pottery, and indorse their books. Mr;. Layard found in Nineveh a magnifying lens of rock-crystal, which Sir D. .Brewster considers a t.riie optical lens, and the orisrin of the microscope. The principle of the stereoscope, invented by Prof. Wheatstone, was known to Euclid, described by Galen fifteen years ago, and more fully in 1566 A. 1)., in the works of Baptista Porta. The Thames Tunnel, thought such a novelty, was anticipated by that under the Euph rates at Babylon ; and the ancient Egyptians had a Suez Canal. Such example might be indennietly multi plied, but we turn to photography. Mi Jobard, in bis "Nouvelles In ventions aux Expositions Unver sefles," 1857, says a tniuslation from Herman was discovered in Russia, three hundred years old, wh ch con t;ijns a clear explanation of photography.
