PATENT FOR 'CANAL LOCKS.

to

ON the ad of August, the specification of a patent was enrolled in the Petty Bag Office, by John Luke Esq; of Trevisses, in the county of Cornwall, for a new mode of lifting, drawing, and conveying loaded and light boats out of one canal into another, instead of the present mode by means of locks. The invention consists of an inclined plane, running from the surface of the upper that of the lower canal, with a system of machinery at the upper end of it, by which the boats are drawn up and let down the plane. The machinery consists of a water-wheel, that is turned by a stream let in upon it from the upper to that of the lower canal, with other wheels connected therewith, and with the rope that passes over a pulley, and connects with the carriage in which the boat is placed : also of a loaded vessel, called a tun, which affists and regulates the machinery, and what moves up and down a corresponding and parallel plane, but in a direction opposite to that of the boat. In case of a scarcity of water, the principal axle of the machinery is fupplied with a hand-turn, which is of fuffici ent power to answer the purpofe of the water-wheel. The contrivances for lifting up and letting down the carriage of the boat, from the water surface of one canal to that of the other, is simple, and well calculated for the purpose.

AN EFFECTUAL CURE FOR CORNS. BATHE the part, if not inconvenient, in warm water, and apply an ivy leaf, which had been previously steeped for twenty-four hours in vinegar. Repeat the Iteeped leaf each day, till the corn is eradicated, and the space it occupied becomes smooth, which in most cases will happen in a week.
