Safety Fluid Lamp-Chemical Cause
This is an invention which we have ex
amined and which we estimate highly. It is
a scientific lamp, and one which no one not
acquainted with chemistry could have in
vented, because the improvement is founded
upon a knowledge of the gases; it embraces
the principles of Humphrey Davy's inven
tion of the Safety Lamp. In the centre of
the lamp, extending to the bottom, is a
fixed cylinder of fine tinned wire gauze,
having a mesh of 500 to the inch. A tube
of like gauze screws on to the wick disc,
and confines the wick. This tube slips
down inside of the gauze cylinder spoken
of. The can for containing the camphine,
or turpentine and alcoholic mixture, which
is now commonly used for lamps, is made
with a disc of this wire gauze in the spout
and under the lid. We have seen the fluid
in the lamp set on fire by taking out the
wick, and the fluid set on fire at the spout
of the can, and no explosion take place.
"We have also teen the fluid poured into the
lamp, out of tie can, while the fluid in the
spout and that in the lamp were blazing,
and, instead of an explosion, the flame was
extinguished. It may well be asked, how
can this simple application of wire gauze
prevent explosions in fluid lamps? The
question is an important one. It was dis
covered by Sir Humphrey Davy, that fine
wire gauze surrounding the flame of a lamp
would prevent the ignition of an explosive
gas surrounding the lamp?but why it
should do so men differ in opinion?the
fact is known, and Mr. Newell has inge
niously applied his knowledge of the same.
The reason why any gas is explosive, that
is, goes off like gunpowder by sudden ex
pansion and contraction, when ignited, is
owing to the combustible materials of its
composition being fully saturated with oxy
gen, and it is then in a fit state to ignite
instantaneously by the first spark. The
gas we employ for lighting our streets, if it
were saturated with oxygen, would, when
a burner was opened and touched with a
match, ignite quick as the lightning flash
all the gas in every pipe and gas-tank in
our city, and would tear up our streets and
blow up our houses as suddenly and forcibly
as if they had been mined with gunpowder.
This i9 the chemical cause of gas and other
explosions, viz.: the combustible" materials
being fully saturated with oxygen and then
ignited. The coals in our fires do not ex
plode, because they are not saturated jith
oxygen, the supporter of combustion; the
oxygen gradually combines with the carbon
in combustion, but if our coals were re
duced to a state of gas, and the gas mixed
with twice its weight of oxygen, the mixed
gas would ignite instantaneously when a
match was applied, and cause what is
termed an explosion?which is but instan
taneous combustion; a fire is slow combus
tion, that is all the difference between the
two. Those who keep volatile hydro-car
bons, such as alcohol, turpentine, or mix
tures of these two fluids, in stores, &c.,
should be very careful and not suffer them
to be acted upon by heat, so as to cause
evaporation and saturation with the oxygen
of the atmosphere, which is simply?to use
? solecism?gunpowder gas.? Scientific

[B^pabTUhed by wqueit]
How vast* expansive, and progressive are
the industrial resources of this great coun
try, how few, even of those who might be
supposed to keep pace with its rapid strides.
The Politician stumping some election dis
trict, wondering what gain he will get over his
victorious rivalT and thintw or wonders that
all the world is not astounded at his rural
greatness, sent forth to shine for the day, in
some legislative hall. Many look with as
tonishment to find that they are mere
things comprising but a moiety of the
vast machinery of human power and great
ness, that they are not the sole levers that
its power moves on uninterrupted by
any jarring of its lesser power. We
see the plow driven by industry and
thrift; fields springing up in rich ver
dure where but yesterday the forest
held its shadowy sway; villages starting
up like magic; the iron girdle spreading
its vast way over coming space, bringing
the products of the but yesterday's distant
forest to be wafted to foreign climes. What
mind can take in this greatness? who keep
pace with its strides. What resources of in
dustry, mighty beyond comparison, taxing
the credulity of the most progressive minds!
May we be pardoned for mentioning but
one department of this vast human treasury
of labor?that of ready-made clothing.
This branch of industry, but a few short
years ago was scarcely worth the notice of
passing glance, now has assumed one of
the most important stands in the vast ex
change, disbursing more capital to in
dustrious laborers, employing in its vast
manufactories greater number of operatives
? than any other branch of industry. Take
but the city of New York, who will credit us
when we give some of the few details.
Handford & Brother, four thousand five
hundred hands and forty cutters; Brook
Brother twenty cutters two thousand five
hundred hands; J. W. Lewis & Co., three
thousand; Close & Smith two thousand.; D.
& J. D evlin, P. L. Rogers, Union Hall;
and P. D. Barnum; the latter establish
ments are wholesale and retail, and
employ as many hands as the larg
est houses. These are the most extensive
and splendid establishments in the country,
keeping the most fashionable and elegant
goods, even superior to those gotten up by
merchant tailors, which is the case in all well
regulated clothing establishments.
These are but some of the leading houses
in that city. In Philadelphia there are
also extensive houses. Gause, Lerhman &
Co., thirty-five hundred, Bennet & Co., two
thousand, besides many others too nume
rous to mention. In Baltimore?Cole, Noah
Walker and many others, who work as
many hands as many of the large houses.
And lastly we come down to our city,
which has of latter years been keeping pace
with the progress of the times ; and keeping
in view that this is a city of but compara
tively a few years old, it can boast of as
much enterprises as any of the sister cities.
In this same department of industry
might be mentioned, Wall and Stevens,
of this city, the largest Clothing Manufac
turers in the District, employing from nine
ty to one hundred hands, (and would em
ploy many more but for the scarcity of la
bor,) benefiting our city by employing
* our own citizens, and producing goods as
lew in price as any establishment north of
the same quality, excepting the very com
mon and low price goods, which, from the
large and surplus population of northern
cities, can be made at lower prices there,
but for better quality, wages are equal.?
We are pleased to see that within the last
few years merchandise of every kind is sold
in thib market as low as in any of the other
cities, and the supply equal in all respects.
It may be asked by some what pay have
this vast concourse of human labor receive
for this work; whether they are benefitted
by its expansive and growing resources, we
may say that they are ; that much has been
said of their destitution and low price given
for their labor; but it is not true in all cases.
Great numbers apply for work who are
entirely incompetent?who are not fit for
the business of tailors or tailoresses; and
it is well known that the employers suffer
in consequence if compelled through neces
sity to keep them. Their wages, of course,
must be commensurate to their services
indigent females, seeking -employment by
their needles, whose only knowledge is in
making the simple article of shirts and
drawers, and who never were intended for
even that simple employment; and we risk
nothing in saying that their is not one in
ten who is entirely competent to do the work
required in a clothing manufactory of good
quality; and this applies to both sexes.
Thus it is that employers are often consid
ered as oppressive, and acting unjustly in
payment of wages; but this is not the case.
As a general thing, (although there may be
exceptions,) those hands who are competent
to do the work promptly, can obtain good
wages and constant employment, and are
always at a premium. The fault lies not
entirely in the employer?it is in the power
of those females who seek employment by
their needle to make themselves entirely
competent by learning it as a profession; but
how often is it that we see parents bringing
np their sens and daughters in idleness,
either through a false pride or the fear of
a few who look down on honest labor as a
thing too degrading, but forget that they
themselves are supported often at the cost
of the laboring community. But it is well
that this class are few, for we must be a
working people, no privilege class, no aris
tocracy of birth, although there may be a
few whose pride may boast of a proud an
cestrial line, but they must give place to
those of but yesterday, whose enterprise
and industry places them far in advance of
ancient sages, sears and dames, whose only
hereditary is that they never done anything
but this; do nothing we hope is fast disap
pearing from our midst. How much better
would it be for them to be taught the prac
tical and useful branches of industry, t.han
the silly twang of a hired piano, or the
working of trashy embroidery?things
worthless in the hands of those who can
never use them or gain any benefit by
