Strana 291 - Now Know Ye, that in compliance with the said proviso, I, the said Adolphe Nicole, do hereby declare that the nature of my said Invention, and the manner in which the same is to be performed, are particularly described and ascertained in and by the following statement thereof, reference being had to the Drawing hereunto annexed, and to the figures and letters marked thereon...
Strana 255 - I fixed a paddle wheel at the stern, and drove it down the Schuylkill to the Delaware, and up the Delaware to the city, leaving all the vessels going up, behind me, at least half way, the wind being ahead.
Strana 285 - Now know ye, that in compliance with the said proviso, I, the said Arthur Howe Holdsworth, do hereby declare that the nature of my said invention, and the manner in which the same is to be performed, are particularly tiescribed and ascertained in and by the following description thereof, reference being had to the drawing hereunto annexed, and to the figures and letters marked thereon...
Strana 254 - ... in twelve hours, made a great show and excited much attention. I thought this was sufficient to convince the thousands of spectators of the utility of my discovery ; but I frequently heard them inquire if the power could be applied to saw timber as well as stone, to grind grain, propel boats, etc., and though I answered in the affirmative, I found they still doubted.
Strana 256 - It is too much for an individual to put in operation every improvement which he may invent. I have no doubt but that my engines will propel boats against the current of the Mississippi, and wagons on turnpike roads, with great piofit. I now call upon those whose interest it is to carry this invention into effect. All which is respectfully submitted for your consideration.
Strana 249 - I also showed to them my drawings, and minutely explained to them the powers of steam. They appeared fully to comprehend all I said, and in return informed me of some experiments they themselves had made, one of which they showed me. They placed a gun-barrel having a hollow arm, with a small hole on one side at the end of the arm, similar to Barker's rotary tube mill...
Strana 251 - I was then in full health, I might be suddenly carried off by the yellow fever, that had so often visited our city (Philadelphia), or by some other disease or casualty, to which all are liable...
Strana 196 - In various places, near the edges, the diamond was consumed, with deep indendations, and occasionally where a fragment had snapped off, by decrepitation, it disclosed a conchoidal fracture and a vitreous lustre. These results were nearly uniform, in various trials ; and every thing seems to indicate that were the diamond a good conductor, it would be melted by the deflagrator ; and were it incombustible, a globule would be obtained by the compound blow-pipe.
Strana 99 - I therefore hereby claim exclusive privilege for the following improvements only : that is to say, first — for heating water or other fluid or fluids, for the purpose of generating steam for steam-engines, in a vessel or vessels, kept (during such process of heating) full of such water or other fluid or fluids, and under a pressure greater than the expansive force of the steam to be generated from such water or other fluid or fluids, at the time of its generation. Secondly...
Strana 255 - This was a fine opportunity to show the public that my engine could propel both land and water carriages, and I resolved to do it. When the work was finished I put wheels under it, and though it was equal in weight to two hundred barrels of flour, and the wheels...
