LOSS OF LIVES IN MINES.

LOSS OF LIVES IN MINES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE PRINCIPALITY. SIR,- The recent lamentable colliery accidents have sug- gested to my mind a mode whereby similar casualties may be materially prevented. From experiments just made with the Gutta Percha tubing, I find that its power of conducting sound is so extraordinary that a conversation may be distinctly carried on at the distance of even three quarters of a mile. If, therefore, this tubing be carried down the shaft to the various workings of the mine, and the extremities furnished with a mouthpiece and whistle, an instant communication in case of danger may be made be- tween every part of the mine and the men at the mouth of the shaft. Feeling that we enjoy many comforts which are purchased at great risk to the p )or miner, and that it is our duty to pro- tect him as far as we can, I shall be glad if you will give pub- licity to this in your paper. Yours obediently, 7, Baches-terrace, City-road, T. B. SMITilERS. London, 19th Feb., 1849.
