Editor Ciiisen : As I waa deairouf ejf
learviog something as to the advantages
of using convict labor on railroads, I made
some enquiries of lr. J. A. Bisaner, of
Georgia, whom I accidentally met at
Charlotte. As convicts have been used
for some time in that State on pffotm
work, be promised to secure for me iufor
motion on the subject. In consequence
of tbis, I received from him a day or two
since a letter endorsing a statement of
Gen. Phillips, which contains much use
ful information, not only on thia subject,
but also in relation to a railroad enter
prise, which may interest our Western
counties. As we practical enect ot using
convict labor is a subject rather new iu
our Slate, it struck ire that you might
think it worth while to publish General
Phillips' letter. Supposing that he would
not object to ita publicity, I place it at
your dbpoal.

A Free and East Costume. - A
Pari, correspondent in the Baltimore
Gazette describe, a loose, cool, and not
eoetly toilet worn ont at a French sea side
resort ; Berck is on the French coast, a
short distance from Boulogne. Tbe fish
women set tbe fashion, and the wealthiest
visitors easily follow it. A single thin
garment, falling from tbe neck to a little
below the knee, and a pair of gaily-worked
slippers, constitute the entire costume at
Berck. Stockings are unknown, or at
least, if any lady appear, with stocking,
.he i. recognised a. a new comer. It may
require twenty-four hours for her prudery
to swear off ; s( the end of that time sbe
will appear in as scanty a diets as the
rest. About half of them, indeed, dispense
even with the slippers, snd one sees groups
playing croquet, the gentlemen clad in
snowy linen and westing red or blue
caps, sod the ladies in hst. and abort
bright-colored skirts, but neither encum
bered by .hue. or stockings. Oftentimes,
however, the wind, blow the dry .and
for miles over the the beech, and to pre
vent this from getting into the eyes, glas
es or spectacles with wire gauze frames
are woru ; which, on young and fair faces,
have a droll effect. One would think
majority of American wives have no op
portunity to prove tbe depth of their loy
aity , io countless live, it never finds
louder expressed than daily service, cook
ing, sewing, tbe rearing of children, trivial
helps, modesties, forbearances, tender
nesses, offered hourly for a life long, bat
to which no thought notice io giving by
ber who gives or him who takes.

A Locomotive with. Legs. At the
sitting of the Academy of Science ou
Tuesday, M. Treses exhibited a model of
a locomotive engine now being tried on
the Eastern Railway. This engine has
no wheels, bnt what may be called leg..
It doe. not roll: it walks, runs, or gallops.
It is like an ordinary railway engine;
with straight lods terminating in. broad
circular skates. There are three lews in
front snd two behind. The moving cyl
inders, instead of turning wheels, raise
the feet, and tbe whole acta something
after the fashion of a three-legged horse.
The invention is especially adapted for
carrying a great weight up an incline.
The engine at work on the Eastern Rail
way weigh, ton tons, aad goes seven or
eight kilometers aa hoar, and can accom
plish if desired, twenty kilometers. Of
course this style of lacomotiye ia not like
ly to dbphsee the eae now in use, hot it
hi especially applicable to mountain rail
ways, and ia step in a new direction.
