A substantial contribution to. the
coming centennial celebration at
1 orktown is Mr. II. P. Johnston s vol
ume, "The Yorktown Campaign,"
which Harper & Brothers will pub
lish in a few days. The book is cc-i
piously illustrated with maps and fine
engravings from famous historical
Daintines by Trumbull. Sir Jeshua
Reynolds, Gilbert Stuart, and others.
It is no little compliment to Mr.
Johnston's accuracy that he haa been
consulted in locating the camping
grounds qf the militia from the vari
ous States, which it is designed to
make identical with the camping
zrounds of the troops from their re-l
pective States a century ago.

In May, 1879. in answer to questions
put to mo by the Select Committee of
the House of Commons on Electric
Lighting, I gavo an estimate of . the
quantity of copper conductor that would
be suitable for the economical trans
mission of power by electricity to ' any
stated distance; and, taking Niagara
as example I pointed out that, under
practically realizable conditions, of- in
tensity, a copper wire of half an inch
diameter would suffice to tako 26,250
horse power from water-wheels ' driven
by the fall and (losing only 20 per
cent on the way) to yield 21,000-horse
power at a distance of 300 British stat
ute miles; the prime cost of the eop
per amounting to 60,000, or less than
3 per horse-power actually yield 4 at
the distant station. William Thorn'
