AUTOMATIC SI SO. FRENCHMAN'S INGENIOUS INTENTION. An in>reJljl)!1S Frenchman, M. Bersier, has devised a: plan by which the compass not only points out the way for large Yf\S82b, Ut i' aefcualipy takes the place of the htiMwivxt. cuirent from a Buhmkorit coil is parted itOa..? the pivot of a compass needle to the -North Pols, point, from which sparks an eighth el inch long insy p&SB to of two soinx-circcu&r pieces of aluminum. These pieces are msu- lated from each other, the gap between them being set to correspond to the desired sailing direction. When the spark passes to one piece the current starts a motor in one direction and moves the rudder until the vessel returns to its proper course, while if the spark passes to the other piece the motor and ructder are moved in the other direction. A two months trial of the apparatus is reported to have resulted very successfully. Among the advantages ot this new method is greater accuracy, ordinary steering, it is stated; being subject to errors that may take a fast-steaming vessel twelve miles per day out of its course.
