NEW PRINTING TELEGRAPH.—We yesterday had the pleasure of privately inspecting a new printing telegraph, on the hydraulic principle, the invention of Mr. W. H. French, of Cardiff, whieh, for simplicity and certainty is far superior to auv other, either hydraulic or electric, that has yet come our notice. The invention being as yet unpatented, I we cannot, of course, go into any description of it but we mav state that, without the use of any arbitrary signs or the necessity of receiving answers from the various stations as to whether or not a message c-au be understood, a communi- cation can he made, at the will of the operator, to one, two, three, or a dozen stations on the main line or branches of a given' district of country, which will be legibly printed on a slip oi' paper, something like the column of a newspaper, to any length, or a conversation can be curried on on the same paper between two points —the intermediate stations, by a siuii)le contrivance, being thrown out of the line of commu- 1 nication. One advantage of this system is, that the tele- .graph becomes the registrar of the communication, and pre- vents any dispute as to its real import: while another, and, perhaps the most important, is, that should an attendant at a,.i i- sta-ion, be absent from his duty he will, should any mes- sage be given in the meantime, find it on his return legibly printed in the ordinary character, a bell continuing to ring from the commencement of the communication being made until observed by the attendant, and, to use a faxniiiai ex- pression, thrown bv him out of gear. In point of economy this telegraph must, when patented, excite universal atten- tion. as it can be erected for less than one-fourth the charge of the exposed electric wires, and for something like one- tell th the price now for laying those wares under the streets, while its station machinery is so simple that any child who can read at atl can manage it with the utmost certainty; aud we believe the dav is not far distant when, irrespective of its application on lines of railway for communicating from station to station, from town, or one portion of a town to another, most of the large manufacturing and min- ing establishments in tne kingdom will be fitted with these printing telegraphs from one part of their premises to ano- ther with which it is necessary to have frequent communi- cation.~Po.s#. or Miss ANN LEWIS, IILEOREST.—January 6, Miss Ami Lewis died, aged O, daughter of Mr. John Lewis, draper, f reforest, a faithful deacon at Bethlehem.
