DE; HOLLAND'S LOCOMOTIVE.
A number, of scientific gejitjejuei
aiHi capitalists were iuyitel to. o
to Paterson, N. J., yesterday iriorn-r
ing, iu order to inspect ' the ' new-
steam locomotive Oi Holland-- Up-
pn ?niving at Patersdn the party
Tl)rf Charles Holland,
inventor bf4 the locomotive,
which was. attached to- a regular
passenger traiif of the New York,
Lake Erie .and Western Kail way,
and wUici' .was ready lo. start for
iS'ew Yoi k at 1.30 o'clock. The lo
comotive was constructed. -at-' the
Grant Works, in l'aterson, and 011
jjTiuay last was used io drawing .a
freight train from Paterson to Jer
iey City. Tke right to build such
locomotives in Fi-ance has already
been secured, -; - andf a fomjKiny
khown as the New York Heat,
Light and Power Company, to con
struct them in this Stated has al
ready been incorporated. '
The inventor explained that tlie
new locomotive js luelled with hy
drogen gas, ' which is constantly
reproduced by its own heat from
water through . the .mediation of 'a
small proportion pf crn4e naphtha.
iNo oil is burned in this process m
the ordinary or popular sense of
combustion. It is used exclusivelv
within retorts without air as a le-
comiosin agent for steam . The
high temperature, of he fire chain-.'
ber in which thelTrltprts are set
keeps themsafficfentlyft hot to dis
engage the xy&ejitean
Iresence of the carbon of the 011 in
their interiora the chemical attrac
tion of thesejtwo elements causing
them to unite m the proportions ol
perfect combustion, and to become
entirely converted into carbonic acid
within the retorts. The released
hydrogen is therefore the only com-
onstioie ingredient leu to issue at
the ibnyners at"! the height of the
process. At the same time the
heat of both processes the decom-
josition within the retorts and the
combustion: outside of them is
confined and utilized -within the
boiler for the making of steam. So
great is this heat that if the decom-
posmg agent oil) beshutoff it has
been found that the steam contin-
nes . to. . decompose by heat. alone,
and to issue with. ' intensified com
bustion at the "burners for a consid
erable time. On the 29th of May
the entire locomotive w as. finished
up and delivered on the Erie Rail
road at Paterson, It is said to be
the most beautiful specimen of lo
comotive I workmanship and deco
ration eyer put On the rails. Its
weight, complete on the road, is 48
tons; length, C2 feet; driving wheels,
5 feet in diameter; cylinders, 17 by
24 inches! The gas-making retorts
are I lour -in; number, oi massive
wrought iron, semi-cylindrical or
dome-shaped, the size and shape
being nearly that of half a peck
measure with the convex side up.
They 'are Set on short iron -posts iu
a row, across the fire box; near the
floor and near the door. ,-The inte
rior of eaclrtsetort is a single -undivided

to within one iuuli t'rom,the bottom,
and alsopipes from the steam-space
and water-space in Hhe boiler, all
opened and closed by finely fitted
and ganged vali'es. An outlet pipe
also passes from the top of each re
tort to a, manifold" joint, in which
these four pipes unite and so con
nect with a massive cast-iron gas
"main" running centrally through
the fire-box lore and aft (length 8
feet, diameter 4 inches), at a level
about three;inehes below the bot-
torn of the retorts. . .This main is
divided into three sections by cut-
off valves, enabling the engineer to
supply or withhold ' gas .to anv
section of the burners at pleasure,
From each side of the main hori-
zontal branch pipes of 1 inch cali-
bre and three or four inches apart!
extend at right angles across the j
fire-box to the number of 02. Each
of these pipes (except the extremes)
is pierced on its upper side with
two rows of minute, burner holes,
alternating in posit iou and oblique- j
ly pitched in such a manner that ;
the gas-iets from the right side ofi
one pipe aud those from the left or
nearer side ot tlie next pipe con
verge and meet iu pairs, each pair
uniting at an angle of, say, 45 de
grees, directly over a 1J inch air
hole in the iron floor of the fire-box.
The total number of jets thus
placed is 548. The air-holes are
-opened and closed wholly or par
tially at will by under slides con
trolled by levers from the engi
neer's cab. Under the whole is
constructed an air-chest, open for

extinguished as instantaneously as
a common gas jet, and in the same
manner by simply- shutting off

first shock of an accident will trip
a closing lever, and thus automati

wreck is begun. As to the oil, it is
confined .in a tank as tight arid

within the water-tank or the ten

the vent-pipe, nothing but vapor,
and this was asserted to be due to
the fact that the engine was carry

The train reached the depot at Jer
sey City one minute and ten se
conds ahead of time. The distance
between Paterson and Jersey City
is said to be 10J miles. Eighty
four gallons of oil were used,.ac
cording to Dr. Holland. This, at
2i cents a gallon, would cost $.10.
A bill appropriating twenty-t wo
millions of dollars has been passed
by Congress, all ostensibly to be
expended in changing and arrang
ing the rivers and harbors.
More than half of this immense
sum of money has been voted away
to be applied to insignificant and
unheard-of creeks and streams be
cause the majority of the Represen
tatives were bound to get appro
priations from the national resour
ces, each for his own neighborhood.
With such a unanimous sentiment
animating Congress, it-was neces
sary that each loose-minded man
should have his appropriation, or
no River and Harbor bill could
ha ve ever been passed; and so from
ten to fifteen millions are to be ta
ken fiom the Treasury without any
good reason of a public nature-.
Now, this enormous sum of money,
these tenor fifteen millions thius ta
ken from the Treasury, lor which
there can be no justification, and
which amounts to a wholesale pub
lic; robbery, is really grabbed for
one purpose alone. This purpose
is to help the return of the present
Representatives in Congress.
Under the dispensation of the
Republican party money has grown
to be a most tremendous agent in
carrying elections. It was for mon
ey that the late President Garfield
wrote to his dear Hubbell, and it
was the successful disburse!' of
this money, or soap, as President
Arthur called it, obtained iu re
spouse to this appeal, who received
from the managers of his party the
credit of carrying the election of
Garfield and Arthur.
The Republicans have organized 1
the whole civil service on a basis of j
a fair return of wages for the bene- (
fit of the party in exchange for the'
privilege of holding office; and it
was anxiety to learn how this sys
tern was working that induced Gar-1
field to. ask Hubbell how the de-!
nartnients were doing. IJut money

not these men their feelings ;s let us
leave them to triumph in that dreary
desolation of heart which is congenial
to such sentiments. '

Let us turn, fellow soldiers, from the
bloody ordeal of the Revolution, and
contemplate with gratitude the blessings
which- it has secured to. us. :; We are,
naturally more alive to the value of any

enjoyment, and therefore we who have
always lived under a free constitution
are the less sensible of its inestimable
benefits. . Here, religion, life, liberty
and property are secured by the im
pregnable barriers of the constitution;
the persecuted exile of every. land here
finds an asylum -upon the rock of our;
constitution he may stand, and say. to

The Baptist Church-here alluded
to is not the Churclr on Middle
street that was opened for Divine
service for the first time "on Sunday
July 2d, 1848; Rev. M. II. Forey,
tne pastor, preacned the dedicatory
sermon. I refer to the - Church
jiear Cedar Grove Cemetery, now
St. Cypreaus; colored. - This Bap
tist Church was established in
Newbern about ; 1812, "by; Elijah
Clark and John Brinson and the
'Meeting House," as it pleased
them to call it, was soou -after
erected, through their liberality
and efforts men of rugged minds,
yet of unquestioned honesty and of.
unyielding faith. Brinsbn's father
had been iinj)iisoned with.Fulsbife
and Purify for "holding to the
Baptist faith," the King's officer
thus choose to spell it in the indict
ment. They were held in the jail
of Craven comity for three months
and were yet stronger in theirTaitli
wnen tne, prison doors were un-
locRed ' than when . locked upOn
them. -In this old MeetihgHpuse
for' long years the t g0el: Was
preached with unusual "eloquence,
clearness and power.0'; iThe first
regular pastor was Thoriias Mer
edith, a great preacher an,d greater
editor, and an unsurpassed contro
versialist. Next was Joseph Waru,
then Samuel Wait and John Arm
strong; Meredith again, then Jpsiali
J. Finch, Richard Fnrmari and M.
R. Forey, in the order in which
they are named. Mr. Meredith
commenced the publication of tlie
Baptist Interpreter in Edenton in
1832. A year or two afterwards it
was changed to the Biblical Re
corder. In 1835 lie published it in
Newbern, preaching at the same
time, and until 1838 when he re-
