B. Ayshford, of Walham Green, for her Majesty's government. One was a commissaria bread waggon with a powerful lever brake, constructed to carry 2i tons. It is set upon high wheels to enable it to ran lightly. The body is built with a crank, and locks quite round, obviating thus any strain upon itself when turning short, as It can be made to do in its own length. The hind wheels are five feet high, front ditto, three feet seven inches; its length, ten feet four inches; breath, four feet; height, four feet eight inches. The front under-carriage is framed of ash and edge-plated. Clips are used instead of bolts, giving strength where carriages of the ordinary pattern are weakened by holes. Louvres are inserted at the sides and ends to allow the steam from hot bread to escape, or for ventilation when the waggon is used for meat. The waggon may be aho em- ployed for conveying powder, corn, or other purposes, when the top can be taken away. The interior of the body is fitted with six tiers of shelves to prevent the bread being injured, and such shelves would, in case of need, be used for sleeping on, or, having long springs, tbey may be formed into an ambulance for the wounded. There is a large box under the driver's seat for tools, corn, bags, &c. Ample room Is afforded for three men to sit, having a part of the tilt for a covering and an apron for the legs, this part being partitioned off from the goods inside. The hind springs are long and adjusted under the axle, by which means the hind part of the waggon is brought down much lower, and consequently more handily for loading and unloading than where the frame is straight. There are double shafts, pole, and outriggers, enabling the horses to work single or double. The axletrees introduced by Mr Aysbford are patented by Messrs Richard and Grindle, of Birmingham. The improvement consists In a cone at the shoulder. The box is of wrought iron, and of sufficient thickness to permit turning out to fit the cone, well hardened, and each box will tit any axle, thus allowing the wheels to be interchangoable. The spring cart is similarly built, and hung on high wheels, being adapted to carry li tons. The tip cart is built with oak bottom, framing, and edge plates. All the carriages are finished and varnished in the wood, and each one may be taken to pieces for pack- ing for transport in twenty miautei. j t'{i THE ABYSSINIAN EXPEDITION.—Respecting the prdbs- ble cost of the expedition the Timet of India Ml* "j* 4 Including a few steamers purchased there have taken up for the purpose of the expedition a total of vessels, costing an aggregate monthly outlay for triin$l port hire alone of 3,920,000r. ( £ 329,000). Besides toe vessels specified, there are 15. steam and other ships» longing to the Royal and Bombay Marine. The sum just named may be fairly taken for five 11,00 j:. ending April 30, for few, if any, of the vessels can 0 liberated before that date and though the cost oflra0 ports could not be so large in December, it will be some. thing more than the above total during the next tff months. As for other items of the cost of the tjon, no estimate that would be even approximately00^ rect can now be stated. It may be sufficient to e,n.nnLJ rate the principal -heads. There is coal, the bill which will only be second to that for transports, « consumption for the manufacture of sweet water 0' Oft the salt sea waves having been enormous. The traDSPOU of animals may cost even more than their fodder, but w yield some return when the expedition is over. R. Napier's first despatch he reported 7,766 mules ponies and 1,900 camels, as being then on tfee Several were sick and hundreds had died; butaUffl0 go into the bill of cost, as well as about 3,000 more tn» expected, besides, say, 2,000 subsequently sent Bombay and Egypt. There will be at least 15.000 W»* gage animals which, at the moderate estimate ofJE^Oean represent £ 600,000. Hay and grain will next, being likely to exceed all other commissariat sto' together; but the cost of these will be very gi-eat-soy nine months' supplies for 10,000 troops and as followers. Then there are materials for the piers, t railway and its rolling stock, besides American telegraph apparatus, and stores innumerable ".j" 4 will be also the 'batta'—that is, the extra pay C'B ..p by the Indian troops of every degree when 011 service.' The ordinary pay ot the troops will be from the Indian exchequer. Altogether the journal thinks that the bill which the Government" have to meet will be much larger than they are yet pr pared to confess. M
