MORTARS TO THROW LIFE LINES. - At the West Point foundry, Cold Springs, N. Y., two mortars to be used at the Chicago and Grosse Point life-saving stations are finished, and will be shipped in a day or two. The mortars are accompanied by twelve balls each, which will be employed in carrying lines to vessels in distress. These life lines can be thrown with sufficient force to reach vessels at a distance of three miles, if any such distance was necessary.
