AN UNKNOWN MONSTUIl.
Queer Mnrlno Aiilmul That \Tn
Cnpturcil In Tonncssoc.
Niulmllo American ,
A rttrango marine monster WAS brough
to thla city yesterday , nnd will bo put 01
exhibition tills week in a building non
the Eiiunro. Hill Orloy and Nick Aloloy
two old fishermen , caught it in the rive
just above the waterworks a few days ago
and since that time it has boon faatonoc
securely to the rlvor bank by attxkoi
driven nround its body , in addition tx
which It is log-chained by the tall to tht
bank. When soon in thintposition yesterday
torday it appeared to bo about the sizi
of a largo Newfoundland dog. It htu
webbed feet , that were attached to the
body by logs without joints. Its bed )
and back , except the stomach , is covoroc
with largo diamond-shaped bony scales ,
The long , coarse , yellow hair grow
ing out of these scales and the
skin , which bulges out in welts bo.
twoon the scales , hangs together like thai
on an Angora goat and is aa coarse nnd
tough as coconnut skin fibers. But itt
mouth is well worth a detailed descrip
tion. It is certainly the most hideout
opening that is developed In the counto-
nenco of any nnimal extant , or told
about by nciontiats. It is about the size
of that of n largo alligator but shaped
like that of a shovel-nosed shark , being
very blunt at the end. And the tooth I
Ihoro nro no less than throe rows of
thorn in both the upper nnd lower part
3f the mouth. The tooth nro nil abort ,
illatnond shaped and jagged , the upper
rows fitting into the lower rows , and the
the jaws working latorly so ns to make
the tooth grind to powder everything
that falls into thorn. The reptile , devil
ish or whatever it is , crawls sideways
ike a crab , and iti eyes are placed ono
tbovo the other in the top of
; ho skull and bulge out like
.ho pegs of a hat rack. There
ire no lids to the eyes , so that
.ho nnimal can not wink , but it pops its
iyns in and out of the eockota so fast
vhou the monster is angry that the nolso
nado by thla working of the eyes is siml-
ar to Hio sound made by a cow's foot
rhon the animal is walking in soft , deep
nucl. The tall is shaped like that of a
> eavor , and is covered Trith warts ot
arioua sizes , the smallest being nbont
ho size of a dime , and the largest about
ho size of n half-dollar. Each of these
rarts Booms to possess the power of mov-
ng separata from the other , nnd irhon
lip whole mass gets to moving it is somo-
hing frightful to behold. It has rather
nero the appearance of a swarm of boos
longing from the limb of a tree than nny-
hlng olno , and is altogether the most
tokening sight imaginable. The whole
nimal is covsred with a'thick ' green
limewhich seems to ooze out of its body ,
nd especially its tall , where it scorns to
riginato from the contorpf small mouths or
pollings , ono of which is in the center of
ach of the warts mentioned. When
iroddod with D stick the animal snaps its
yes , grinds its tooth , and each particula
air stands on end and ovor'y inch of it
ody seemed to writhe and equlrm am
ark on its own account , and in the man
or nnd direction that seems to give i
lie most comfort. The tongue Is forkoi
nd black and darts out nnd in like tha
f n son serpent. Mr. Robert Grave ;
ya Mr. Cave Williams has offered a
irgo price for the animal , and will prob
bly exhibit it in a wagon-bod ospociallp
onstructod for the purpose on the public
3uaro. .Tho two fishermen who captured
, have followed this moans of making i
volihood for many years. It scorns thai
: io existence of this animal has been
nown to them and a number of old river
ion in this city for a number of years ,
'hoy ' say it has made its abode under i
igli bank on the loft hand aide
a you go up the river , in i
lace suitable for such a terrible ,
ucanny thing to live without molosta
on. They have boon much annoyed by
iis reptile and have boon put to a great
oal of expense in repairing their lines ,
9 fish-hooks seemed only to whet its np
otito. Aa if by instinct it know whor
nd where the lines were sot , nnd would
'nit ' to devour the bait and destroy the
nos , which it did almost every night.
> ut lately a now method was resorted to
> r dealing with the monster , which ro-
jltod in its capture , to the great delight ,
3 well as astonishment ot both.the iish-
rinon. Instead of resorting to the old
lethod of lishlnt ; , they procured a long ,
oavy clothoswiro and stretched it mid-
ay across the river. It was attached to
10 end of a ton-gallon keg , that acted as
buoy. To anchor it down an old Iron
> g-wliuol was used. About slxy foot
om the shore the bait was sot in a largo
col trap nnd lot down. It was
at long before it was gobbled , as
fisherman who was looking after
; her lines discovered. The keg was
ion bobbing up and down , and sudden-
r disappear altogether. They common-
id to haul in thu line , nnd canio very
oar upsetting their skill' . The reptile
Y this time was furious and lashed the
atom Into a white fonin. It was found
upoasiblo to land it with the boat , and
took two hours to pull the boast out on
ry land. An old blanket was promptly
irown over it nnd secured by driving
.nkos around the outside. The monster
it , snapped , and struggled all night to
oo itself , until finally , when it was ox-
ixuatod , live men brought it across the
vor in a lliit boat and loft it at an old
iw mill , just above the water works ,

A llnttlcHiinlcu'ti Suicide ,
The letter of Edward F. Hardman In
aturc , with reference to the suicide of
ack snakes , recalU nu incident whichf ]
ice witnessed , ( an Indiana correapoii-
Hit writes to Nature ) . I was quito
nail , but my memory of the strange oc-
irronco is very clear and distinct. It
M in the state of Illinois , whoa nt that
irly day , a short , thick variety of rattle-
lake was very numerous , so much so
lat the sUto acquired an unenviable rep-
: ation tn the older parU of the union ,
armors in "breaking prnirio , " as the
nt plowing of the pralno sod was called ,
ould kill them by dozens in the course
a single uuinmer , They were very
inomous , but owing to their sluggish
ituro and their rattle , which was always
lundod before an attackbut few persons
ere bitten by them. Moreover , there
as little danger of death if proper rom-
Hes were applied nt once. *
I was ono day following ono of the
largo breaking plows common nt thai
timo. It was drawn by five or six yoke
of oxon and thoroworo twojtnon to man' '
ago the plow and the team. At wo wore
goln ? along ono of the mon discovered a
rattlesnake as I remember , about twelve
or fourteen inches in length. They rare
Iv exceed eighteen or twenty Inches , sc
that this ono waa probably about two.
thirds grown. The man who first seer
It was about to kill it when the othoi
proposed to sco If It could bo made tc
bite itself , which it was commonly re
ported the rattlesnake would do if an
gered nnd prevented from escaping ,
Accordingly they poked the snake ovei
Into the plowed ground and then began
tensing it with their long whips. Escape
was Impossible nnd the snake soon be
came frantic nt its Ineffectual attompte
either to Injure its assailants or got away
from thorn. At last it turned upon itsoll
and struck its fangs Into its own body
nbont the middle.
The poison seemed to take effect in
stantly. The fangs Troro not withdrawn
at all , and if not perfectly dead within
loss than five minutes , it at least showed
no signs of life. That it should die so
quickly will not seem strange If it Is
berne in mind that the same bite would
have killed a full grown man in a few
hours' timo. The mon watched it long
enough to bo euro that it would not bo
likely to move nwny , nnd then wont on
with their .work. I trudged nround with
them for an hour or more , nnd every
time wo came where the snnko was I
stopped and looked at it but it never
moved again. In this case I do not remember -
member that the snake had boon injured
at all. I have often hoard of rattlesnakes
biting themselves under such circum
stances , but this was the only case that
over came under my observation.

Victoria's 1'rlvnto Fortune ,
Her majesty possesses an immense for
tune. The estate of Oabprno is at least
iivo times aa valuable as it was when it
was purchased by the Qucon and Prince
Albert about 40 years ago. The Balmo
ral property of her majesty now extends
over 30,000 acres. Olaromont was grant
ed to the queen for life In I860 , with re
version to the country , and her majesty
purchased the property outright three
years ago for 78,000. Probably its market -
kot value is not much under 1GOCOO
The queen also possesses some proport ;
at Coburg , nnd the Princess Hohonloh'
left her the Villa Ilobonlohp , nt Baden
ono of the best residences in the place
With regard to personal property , Mr ,
Niold loft the qucon over 500,000 , ant
the property loft by the Prince Censer
is believed to have amounted to nearly
000,000 , but the provisions of his wil"
have boon kept a strict secret , and th
iocumont has never boon "proved.1
I'hn queen must nlso have saved a vas
sum out of her income , which has alwayi
t > eon very well managed. Since thi
loath of the Prince Consort the genera !
\dministratlon of the Queen's ' privat
ifialrs had been confided to LordSydnoy ,
, vho is a consummate man of business , . '
iavo reason to believe that , in du
: ourse , application will bo made to Par
lament on behalf or the children of the
Prince and Princess of Wales. Indeed ,
itero is to bo a royal message on the sub
ioct of Prinft Albert Victor's establish
nont next season. The country will not ,
lowovor , bo asked to provide for tin
roungor members of the royal family ,
Che Duke and Duchess of Edonburg an
ilroady wealthy , and on the death of thi
3uko of Saxo-Ooburg-Qotha they wll !
nigrato to Germany ; but the Con
mughts , Albanys , Christians and Ration
lorgs will look to the Queen for provis
ons ; and so , also , will any of the youngo :
ihildron of Princess Alice who may hap
ion to make poor matches. It will been <
eon , therefore , that the Queen will havi
) lonty to do with her fortune , largo aa 1
mdoubtodly is , and although in thi
ivont of her majesty's death the country
/ould bo asked to provide for Princess
Joatrico , yet she will naturally occupy
n important place In her mother's will ,

A dispatch from Pittsburg states tha
if the steel nails proved a success the experiment
porimont would revolutionize the trade
as n few mon could do the work of hund
rods. This has created nu little excite
merit , and wo have received n number o
letters asking how this could bo , and b ;
what process the saving is effected.
_ The reason why steel nails can bo mad
with less labor than iron nails ia because
cause the stool itaolf U made by the Bos
seiner procees , which turns out immons
quantities by very simple machinery
while in the case of iron used for nail
the process is by hand , very laboriou
and slow. A Bessemer converter cai
make from 120 to 250 tons of stool po
day , simply by the help of a few men ti
nttond machinery. It is an onlargoi
foundry process , where metal is moltec
and operated upon chemically. Thi
metal is poured out into ingots , nnd thosi
ingots are heated nnd rolled into stoo
nail plate , nnd cut the same na the iroi
But the case is different with thi
plates for iron nails. First , the pig irot
is put In a puddling furnace , a half-tor
at a time , and worked laborously by tw (
mon a puddlcr and n helper , for an houi
and a half. Five "heats" constitute or
dinarily a day's work nnd the product ie
in the neighborhood of n ton or a tor
and a quarter of iron , which it hoatoc
and rolled into nail-plato and is cut inte
convenient lengths for the nail cutters ,
Twenty puddlors and helpers might turn
put twelve to fifteen tons of iron plate
in a day but the snmo force at a Bosso-
moa plant might turn our ton or twenty
times that quantity of steel. A Bessemer
"blow" can bp made in thirty to
fiorty-fivo minutes , and produce
from five to fifteen tons , according to the
capacity of the converter , simply by the
labor of unskilled mon to till the con
verter with the necessary material nnd the
labor of a skilled man to turn a little
wheel tto regulate the blast , bywhich the
impurities of the material nro oxidized
and eliminated. Ono Bessemer plant
makes 700 tons In ono day with two converters -
vorters doing their best , and this with
the work of a small equad of laborers.
It would require the labor of from 1,000
to 1,200 skilled iron workers to make the
aamo quantity of puddled iron , aud then
it would bo vastly inferior to the Bessemer -
The actual labor of cutting the nail
plate up into nails is the same with
either iron plato or steel plato. The sav
ing in labor is in the preliminary process
There are nt present two Bessemer
plants making stcul nail plato. Ono is
Bellairo , Ohio , and consists of two four
ton converters. Its first blow was made
April 23. A few men hero do what 200
iid boforo. The second Benseraor plant
.a at Worcester , Mass. , and also consists
Df two four-ton converters. The first
jlowof this establishment was made on
the 2nd of Juno.
A third plant is in process of erection ,
md will probably not bo in operation
intil aomo time next year. Hero Is a
present and prospective capacity of six
: onvortors of four tons capacity each ,
sasting in less than an hour. Hand

Iriven to the wall. Steel is supplanting
ron gently , but _ the revolution has ob-
oineda strong foothold , and nothing can
irreat it. Steel rails can bo made choap-
> r than iron rails , and are much more
.orvicoablo. . The same will bo true of
> thor forma of Iron , aa progrcsa ia made.
There nro at present sixteen Bessemer
iteel rail establishments in the United
States , with a productive capacity of not
ar from 2,000,000 tons ingots per an-
lum. Under the decline in railway
luilding this enormous capacity has do-
irnssed prices. The complaint made as
, o stool nails ia that they are smoother
lian iron nails , and therefore have less
; rip on the surrounding material , but
.heir uao has not been extensive enough
o say what they are worth compared to
ron nails. They will certainly last longer ,
md being made with lessor labor and
mt of cheaper material , they can crowd
ron nails out , juat aa stool rails have
irowded Iron rails out of the market.
