Railway Indicator. All those railway ttravellers who have in vain en- deavoured to master the mysteries of Bradshaw," or to acquire a familiarity with the railway language, will thank Mr. Leigh, of Golden-terrace, Dalston, for an ingenious Indicator," which he exhibits in Class 5 in the western annex. Mr. Leigh's indicator being hung up in a railway carriage is so contrived as to disclose the name of each station a few moments before the latter is reached, and thus to enable the passengers to ascertain the rate at which they are approaching, whit every railway passenger anxiously desires-namely, the end of his journey. Mr. Leigh, having been overlooli ed by the jurors, has good-humouredly given a medal to himself, of which the spectator will see the joke when he has inspected and satisfied himself as to the usefulness of the invention. The number of visitors have diminished during the week, and the returns have not been equal to those ad- mitted in 1851. The total numbers admitted to the building from the 1st of May to the 27th of September inclusive (22 weeks -129 exhibition days), compared with 1851, are as follows, viz. 1862.
