And I do further declare, that in order to make the boiler of a high pressure steam-engine of very light materials for portable purposes, and at the same time strong for resisting the pressure as well as for exposing a large surface to the fire, I do construct the said boiler of a number of small perpendicular tubes, each tube closed at the bottom,...

By this means he avoids a great proportion of the usual friction, a very moderate degree of tightness in the packing, being in practice found sufficient to prevent the passage of so dense a fluid as water. The second part of this invention consists in causing steam of a high temperature to spout out against the atmosphere, and by its recoiling force to produce motion in a direction -contrary to the issuing stream, similar to...
