removed by direct experiment. Mr. Perkins's engin eis actually at work. Its operations have been witnessed and minutely examined by engineers and philosophers of all kinds; and the most unreasonable sceptics have been compelled to acknowledge the justness of its principles, as well as the energy of its operations. The active and inventive mind of Mr. Perkins, however, did not remain satisfied with this experiment. He has discovered a method, which we consider equal in value to his new engine, by which he can convey the benefit of his original principle to steam-engines of the old construction, and this has been recently succeeded, we are told, by a most extraordinary discovery, that the same heat may be made to perform its part more than once, in the active operations of the engine.
In order to convey to our readers some idea of these great inventions, we have obtained a drawing, made by M. Montgolfier, jun, which, though it does not respresent the actual machine, yet contains such a view of its parts as is
necessary for understanding its principle. ре
The generator, which supplies the place of the boiler in 2.
ordinary steam-engines, is a cylinder ABCD, made of gun-metal, which is more tenacious, and less liable to oxi.
dation, than any other. The metal is about three inches P
thick; and the vessel, containing eight gallons of water, is closed at both ends, with the exception of the five open
ings for tubes, shown in the figure. The generator is 9
