The Steamer Champlain. This elegant new steamer took ber place as one of the \Lin* Boats\ on Lake Cham- plain last Monday under the command of Captain Kusblow. So completeli.is been the transformation that no one could imagine as he walked through the elegant saloons and cabins that this was what was once the freigh t bout Oakes A tiles. : Mr. Root, the master mechanic of the Champlain Transportation Company fo r the las t forty-fou r years i s the man who has wrought) the wonderful change. It was! he who superintended tli c building of the Ver- mont, the ^diiondack, the United States, and i n fact every other boat which has been launched by the Company in the last forty' years, and he can trul y say that ha has seen tou r sets of boats wear out. The Ames was built especially fo r trans- porting railroa d trains across the lake from Pittsburgh to Burlington, and she did her work will—would carry seven loaded cars acros s a s easily as she wonld a toy carriage . But i n the course of time there was no more work of that kind to do, New Yoik having made arrangements to run her own cars to her own market over her own soi l and through her own tunnels up the western, iro n bound shore of Late Chatnplabi. Tben the Ames fell into the hands of Mr. Hoot: '•Ther e she i s ? the Company said: \take her and make a passenger boat of her—do the bes t you can with the ol d freigh t boat/' (i t was not an old boat however, having run only fou r years) and i t i s presumed that they added mentally, \we don't expect much of her. - ' He set about bis work last fall and the re - sul t has demonstrated that his right hand has lost none o l it s cunning, nor kis eye any o f it s ol d keenness o r aptitude. The extreme length o f the boat i s 205 fee t aud the width over all is 02 feet; it s tonnage has been decreased about one hundred tons by the changes which have been made and is now about IL'00 tons, a littl e large r than that of the Adirondack and a littl e less than tire Yermoflti She ^as - two \boilers as the other lin e boats have, but they are large r than those of either the Adirondack or Ver- mont. Site lias also t\v « engines which no other boat on the lake has, with 45 inch cyl- inders and ten foo t stroke, aud i s by fa r the most powerful boat ever launched on Lake Champlaiii, The ladies' cabin is af t and has not been changed, except by being elegautly refurnished. Down siairs from the ladie s cabin yon first pass into a compartment furnishe d with comfortable berths fo r ladie s together with fou r State Itooms. Further on towards the center of the boat ar e rooms for the crew, adjoining which is the kitchen, pantry, itc, furnished with all the modern conveniences in the way of ranges, steam heaters for keeping meats warm, Ac., Arc.

A correspondent, writing fro m Elizabeth- ; i* t pie d this point, tinde r the titl e of the \Lovel l Printing ar. d Publishing Company.\ JTJiey inmedlateiy went to work tiy eonwf tlrtwtme of the buildings into a miniature printing and publishing establishment, and at the same time making arrangements fo r the erection of a large r building. In the former quarters they have fo r some time b> en at work, employing fifteen or twenty hands. Here they set type, fro m which they con- struct stereotype plates both by the plaster and papier mache process. Thay are now working on an order from Little,, bretn & Co., •{ Boston, for stereotype plates fo r the W. P. Digest,\ a worl r of twclfej-rt>j|u»« s containing 1000 pages each. BesiBes'tnis, they have severa l other larg e orders on band. The principle of the stereotyping process i s very simple, although there ar e a multitude of details whieh «AO ouly be waateseC'hy long practice of skillful workmen. Tliietyne i s set up in the usual manner and place d i n a form of Ilia size, of the Minted nage. The face of the type i s then oiled carefull y and the plaster poured upon i t aud beaten i n thoroughly, so as to fill al l the smallest iater - stices and expel al l the ai r bubbles, afte r ; which it i s \Strike d off to a uniform thick ness. After the piaster sets i t is separated j from the form , the moisture h expelled by heat, and the melted type metal is poured upon tbe impression which tbe fac e of the type has made iu the plaster. This is the stereotype plate, about three-eights of an inch in thickness, and containing upon enc sid e an exact duplicate of the feee of every type i n the form, even the most minute pe- culiarit y or defce t being faithfull y copied. Another method consists iu using papier mache instead of plaster, first soaking the leaves thoroughly until they ar e almost re- reduced to a pulpy stale, and beating these leaves, one afte r another, down upon the lac e of the type unti l a requisite thickness i s obtained, then drying the moisture out by steam and separating: thus a paper instead of a plaste r impression i s obtained,by means of which the model of the form i s made a s before . The impression tlm* obtained i s nearly as sharp as that made with plaster, and it has the advantage that it can b e used to ca*t many models, whereas the plaster impression i s always ruined by the first cast- ing, many particle s sticking in the small interstices on separating; which have to be picked out afterwards by hand. Another method still i s to use clay, in much tbe same manner as piaster . Of course no one needs to have pointed out to him that iu book- making, the stereotype process i s indispen- sable , a s one font of type, by means of it , can be used over and over, thus greatly lessening j the expense. The plates can als o be stored I away and kept fo r futur e use, iu case of the printed editions becoming exhausted and more bciif g calle d for . The ar t Of stereo- typing was not discovered until about three centuries afte r the ar t of printing. In the latte r par t of the ISth century the celebrated aud roomy, the apace i n the center which i s .' printerS i MM. Didot introduced it in Europe, al l absorbing topi c at the time. This how- ever was not acte d upon, a s so grea t an in - terest seemed lo be felt whenever the subject ject was mentioned, and soon, a notice of the- meeting* was inserte d i n the villag e pa - pers . A Constitution was drafte d b y Mrs. Piatt , Mrs. Bishy and Miss Brown, and with some Sligh t alterations accepted by the society. An article, descriptiv e of the enterprise was writ - ten fer tbe villag e papers by Mrs. Bixby.and these papers were sent to editors (fo r re-pub- IicaUou ) and fo prominent men throughout the Nortliern counties. The name which the ladies first adopted of \Ladies Associa- tion to r the Relief of Destitute Women and Children'' was changed to \Home for tbe Friendless ol Northern Jfew York.' ' The next step which seemed necessary was the incorporation of the Society. This was effecte d through the kind assistance of Judge Palmer in making out the papers, aud tbe prompt attention the lion. S. M. Weed paid to the subject befor e the Legislature. A house which seemed perfectl y adapted U> the present needs aud circumstances of tbe Society was offered to the ladies by the i Hon. M. K. Piatt. They would most gladly have acted upon this offer at once, could they have secured the services of a suitable matron. They however gratefully accepted it , while they made every effort to find the right person. The replie s to letter s addressed to County Managers and others have been most en- couraging. Circulars and copies of the Con- stitution have been sent to eight editors , aud papers containing the articl e befor e mention- ed, to seventeen clergymen, aud twenty-two prominent gentlemen. The Society now numbers thirty unsolicited members. We have County Managers ready to aid us aud iu full sympathy with us iu Port Henry, Keeseville, Jay,Chazy, West Chazr, Beek- mantown, Ellenburgh, Morrisonvill e aud Al- tona. The littl e oue whose woes le d us to reach out a helping baud to peor humanity - wears a s happy and healthy a face a s if he knew that his existeuce however uucalled for, is likely to prove a Llessing to Northern Jfew York. His appearance attests the kind care he receives. We have under consideration severa l other cases that appeal deeply to ou r Vympatbies, but which we have not been abl e to ac t upon as yet.

The las t imitation i s done by the voic e and not with the piano. Another thing that makes these concerts interesting is the entire naturalness of the exhibition. Tom i s free and easy to the las t degree, applauding himself, spinning about ou one leg.audcliuel.-iiii g idiotically . There It about the poor fellow a simple kindliness of manner and a good nature that makes his audience well disposed toward him. What- ever be does i s performed with ease and fa - eUUy.aSMl there i s not only none of the re - straint and formality of an ordinary concert but there i s no striving to do a fine thing or to produce a fine edict.
