A NEW WRITING TELEGRAPH.

Nature reports that an invention of a real practical character, not a mere " paulo post fuixtrwin" invention like many we have heard of lately, has just been made by Mr. E. A. Cowper, the well-known mechanical engineer. It is a real telegraphic writing machine. The writer in London moves his pen, and simultaneously at Brighton another pen is moved, as though by a phantom hand, in precisely similar curves and motions. The writer writes in London, the ink marks in Brighton. We have seen this instrument at work, and its marvels are quite as startling as those of the telephone. The pen at the receiving end has all appearance of being guided by a spirit hand. The apparatus is shortly' to be made public before the Society of Telegraph Engineers.
