The Civil Engineer and Architect s Journal  Vol  2

Excerpt from The Civil Engineer and Architect's Journal, Vol. 2: Scientific and Railway Gazette, 1839 Another year has been added to our labours, and it is again a pleasant duty to lay before our readers a brief account of the progress of the two professions, to the service of which we are devoted. It will naturally be expected that in a year of severe financial embarrassment, succeeding also to one so fertile in important results as was the last, there must necessarily be a falling off in the amount of what would otherwise have been effected, and a delay in the execution of many works, the completion of which is thereby retarded. Our own exertions, however, we have not suffered to flag under circumstances so dispiriting, but trust that so far as has depended on us, the present volume is worthy of its predecessor, and of the patronage with which our endeavours have been crowned. In considering the general features of architecture, we find that the invasion of the Renaissance style, which we announced last year, has actually occurred, but has singularly been accompanied with, or rather smothered by, a resuscitated taste for Elizabethan external and internal decoration. Considerable attention has also been devoted to the early antiquities or Moresque architecture. Our own ecclesiastical antiquities, we are happy to mention with praise, have been chosen as the special object of enquiry by a Society of Clergymen at Oxford, and thus we are led to hope for an improvement in taste, in a quarter which hitherto has had but too great a part in producing the present degeneracy. A striking and interesting circumstance to every well wisher of the arts, is the great zeal with which both associated bodies and individual members of the profession have engaged in the struggle for maintaining the true principles of competition. Among these cases have been the Nelson Testimonial, St. George's Hall Liverpool, and the Royal Exchange, in the still pending contest respecting which latter, we believe we may say with truth, " Quorum pars maxuma fui." On learning the extraordinary attempt to impose a tax of a guinea on applicants, for copies of the Instructions of the Committee, we immediately obtained copies both of the instructions and the plans, and left them at our office for the free use of any applicant-u course of conduct for which we feel an abundant reward, in the vote of thanks unanimously bestowed on us by the Manchester Architectural Society. From these exertions hitherto, no immediate fruit has resulted, but much has been already attained from the influence which they have had in awakening the public mind from its lethargy, and calling its power to a subject so importantly affecting the national glory and the general taste. Great progress has been made this year in bringing the accessary science of geology to bear upon architectural pursuits, and with a success which must have an influence on the future progress of each respectively. Government issued a commission, composed of geologists and architects, to examine the quarries of England, for the purpose of ascertaining the slove best fitted for the construction of the new Houses of Parliament. This commission has produced a report which must long be a standard of information to the profession, and a valuable model in future enquiries. The Government has also formed a Museum of Economic Geology, attached to the department of Woods and Forests, in which the commissioners specimens are collected, and to which future accessions will ho made. Special courses of lectures on the connection of these two subjects have been delivered by eminent geologists: at the Royal Institute of British Architects by G. F. Richardson, (reported in our Journal), and at the Architectural Society, by E. W. Brayley, jun. Great attention is also paid to these subjects in the several faculties of civil engineering. Although not yet brought into immediate connection with architecture, we ...

The Civil Engineer and Architects Journal

Excerpt from The Civil Engineer and Architects Journal: From October, 1837, to December, 1838 Mining has presented several novel features, of which the more remarkable have been the utilization of anthracite coal, the application of the hot blast, and the introduction of asphalte. Little more as yet has been done with regard to the employment of this latter, than laying down some experimental pavements, which appear to have worn well hitherto. As an aid to the progress of mining, we may instance the extension of schools for instruction in that branch, to which we shall have farther occasion to allude in a subsequent part of this review.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Not illustrated. 1844 edition. Excerpt: ...be no difficulty in getting space for one at the back of the throne. As to tbe staircase of twenty-five or twenty-six steps in one flight, he could give instances of the same in some of the most celebrated palaces ana buildings on the continent. Mr. Barry here handed in the original instructions which he received with respect to the interior accommodation and proportions of all the various departments and subdivisions of the building, which he said were the only instructions generally that he had ever received. Then entered necessarily into many statistical details which would too much burden our columns and be tot-illy uninteresting. When tbe Committee next assembled, three days later, Mr. Barry said he wished to band in a certain document as evidence, which he had drawn up since the last day's meeting, as there appeared to be an impression on their Lordships' minds that he was open to censure for alterations made in the plan originally adopted by Parliament. He is then questioned as to the extent of ground gained from the time the original plan was selected, and having stated that it was from 56 to 74 acres (as we have already mentioned, ) he informed the Committee that any departures which had taken place from the original sealed instructions, were done upon the authority of Committees of both Houses of Parliament. The following was then read--Mr. Barry's Statement. "My Lords, --At my last interview with the committee, I admitted that alterations had been made without authority; but, I must beg of your lordships to bear in mind, that that admission extends merely to the mode in which they have been effected, as they have generally been the consequence of express orders received from government. Yonr lordships must, I am sure, be...
