new york herald itbin the last fortnight we have had two striking and brilliant triumphs of sci ence the fearful cyclone which devel oped itself fully near savannah on the evening of the 20th inst was detected and pre-announced at thirty five minutes past 7 o'clock on the morning ofihe 17th as then existing between the bahamas and georgia this announcement from the oflice of lhe chief signal oflicer took i lace nearly three entire days before lhe tropic-born monster fell upon the georgia coast in al its fury on the morning of the lbth the announced path of the cy clone in florida was 10 the northwest ward into georgia with easterly winds and rain and later in the day this tele gram was reaffirmed by the signal offi cer on the li th it was added at an ear ly hour by telegraph the centre of the cyclone will probably keep a short distance east ofthe immediate coast line and be oil ape hatteras to-morrow mor ning these storm warnings issued to all the harbors interested between forty eight hours and seventy-two hours in advance of the threatened hurricane it seems by our latest reports were verified with fatal punctuality the herald has already given in full the statement of the savannah republican that on the 20th the weather report of the signal bureau had been singularly correct and that it this instance the correct predictions of the bureau has saved a great many lives and an immense amount of property â€” the damage by the storm in savannah was estimated at not much less than 100,000 the steamship ladona of new york we already know was the victim of its violence and our telegraphic col umns report many vessels disabled on the morning of lhe 24th a second cyclone which had just died away was discovered and reported which in forty eight hours verified the probabilities of the signal oflice in a fierce visitation of the south atlantic coast as predicted its track lay more to the west than that ofthe cyclone of lhe 18th iust the telegrams from georgia and tennessee show that : t has been a serious and severe storm thus in the space ofa fev days we have hail the strongest evidence of tin wisdom aud ability of our national storm signal

advised of the approaching tempest before it has fairly started on ils destructive course tin mackerell fishery there are at present from three to four hundred vessels engaged iu the mackerel fishery scattered along il.e coast of new england from block island to the bay of fundy the vessels average from about eight lo one hundred and twenty tons each this fleet is now collected on the coast of maine between portland and townsend the mackerel season begins about the middle of june and this year tin catch his been unusually large owing to this lhe trade has been poor i'l the pr.ee of the li.-li has rni very low last year the markel was high and good mackerel sold for 30 per barrel ihese prices were sustained until tin close of the season and not anticipating such a rapid decline deal ers bought largely af tin close ot the season liie market declined and ihe large catch of this year has made it still lower so that good lisii can now be bought as low as sig per barrel besides the hand fisliin vessels employed in this trade ihere are a large number of seiners they lie around and watch for the schools which they surround with their seines â€” these are made of large twine from soo to 900 feet long and about 100 feet deep and often from 200 to uoo barrels offish are taken at once some idea oi the ex tent of the mackerel business can be gained from the fact that to man the

for a narrow gnage road fio m paducah kentucky to paris tennessee improvements in telegra phy the london times of the 30th of jan uary last described a telegraphic instru ment invented by mr herring construc ted to produce the dot and the dash ofthe morse code in such a manner that one could never he mistaken tor the other â€” this was effected hy the use of two dis tinct levers â€” tin arrangement which also permitted the dasli to be made vertical instead of horizontal and to be produced i instantaneously instead of by continued pressure thus saving the time of the ope rator and diminishing lhe leng.ii of the message-slip the authorities of the brit ish post offiee took exception to mr i herring's firs instrument bec*iuse it was â– intended to print he then arranged it i to emboss and it was next objected to ! because it would not print the latter objection seemed to be the one must like i ly in be insisted upon ; and mr herring has now removed it by completing a prin ting instrument of a very superior cliar , acter in his instrument the slip of paper on which the message is received is made to travel by clock work iu the ordinary wav it passes directly over a thin metalic disc placed transversely to the course of the slip revolving on an axis and dipping into an ink well ; over the paper is a le ver terminating in a broad style placed vertically above the disc so that the de scent of lhe lever compresses the slip of paper between the disc and the style â€” the lever is double in the sense that its central portion carrying the centra por tion ofthe style can be acted upon either independently of the lateral portions 01 together with lliem in the former case only the narrow central portion of the slyle descends and the slip of paper is pressed upon the inking disc at only a single point of contact which produces a dot in the latter case the style descends as a whole and having a concave edge it presses the paper into contact with the disc by more or less of this edge thus produciag a vertical dish i tl there is an adjusting screw by which the inking disc may be raised or lowered at pleasure and by raising it lhe length of the contact surface and hence the length of the dash may be increased at the pleasure ofthe operator the press ure of the style stops for the moment the evolution of the inking disc upon the immediate recommencement ot which the ink supply depends mr herring has therefore placed upon ihe axle of the the disc a box containing a spiral spring so arranged that when the disc itself is checked the power ofthe clock-work coils the spring the moment the disc is re leased the coiled spring gives the neeessa impulse to produce immediate revolution the operator is furnished with two keys one of which commands ilie central or dot portion of lhe lever the other lhe lever as a whole one then-lore produ ces the dot and the other the dash and no mistake can occur between the two except by the use of llu wrong key â€” the printing is ivnarkably clear distinct and compact the instrument is worked with a double current mr herring has also made some subsi daiy improvements of importance espe cially with regard to the

process and repuires some ex perience observation and a thorough knowledge of the character anti quality of the tobacco with which you hive to deal in order to insure uniform success much depends upon the character of the crop when taken from the bill it it is of good s!z well matured and of a good yellowish color there is necessarily but little difficulty in the operation as soon as the tobacco is taken from the biil and housed we commence â€” w ith a low degree of heat sav 95 to 100 farherenheit â€” the yellowing or steam ing process this is the first and sim plest part of the whole process and re quires fn.m 15 to 36 hours according to the size and quality of the tobacco and his degree ot heat should be continued until the leaf opens a lemon color and is nearly free from any green hue when this point is reached tin heat should be gradually raised to 105 de^r in order to commence drying the leaf and here lies the whole difficulty in curing v i mean drying the leaf the last degree of hi at indicated should be continued five or six hours when it should again be gradually j raised to 1 10 dig and should be main tained at this point until the tails or ' points of the leaves begin to curl and 'â– dry indeed it will probably be safest j for beginners to continue the degree of j heat uiitil-one third of the leaf is dried the temperature may then be gradually i increased to 115 deg and kept fur several hours at that point until the le.-.f begins to rattle when shaken then again raise the in at 12 deg at which point it should be coiitiiiiied until the leaf is dried alter which the temperature may be in creased to 150 deg or 100 deg to dry i the stem and stalk ; the latter should , j blackened by the heat before the curing ! is complete ordinarily it requires from two and a ! half to five days to cure a barn of tobac t co dependent entirely upon the sizi and , quality pot 7 or s plants on each slick and place them t-i^iit inches apart on the tier poles in the yellowing process the d ir of the barn should be kept closed to exclnde the air when the pei is reach l ed for drying the leaf the door may be ! opened occasionally and kept open from 20 to 30 minutes at a time especially if j the tobacco gets into a sweat as it is ' called or becomes damp and clammy the temperature is raised in the barn bv cautiously from time to tint adding ! coal to the fires which should be placed ! . in small piles on the floor in rows allow ing about five feet between each pile which shonld contain at first about a i double-handful of coal in adding coal you will soon learn the quantity neces sary to be applied by the effect produced avoid raising the heat hastily after the drying is commenced lest the leaf should be scalded and reddened ; on the other hand it should not be raised too slowly for fear of raising the grain or the leaf becoming spongy and dingy l.-jth e t:ernes are to be avoided and the skill here required to insure uniform success is to be acquired only by experience and observation we frequently cut tobacco : the latter part of the week house it ai sillier it to remain until tl.e first of next week that we may not violate the 4th , commandment if i had
