Prof. Wilson, of BatIniore, Md., sayA of
thill Guano : "By d britical exainination
of the analysit of the various cargoes you
havo hifported, a striking feature is the
groat regularity In the percenvage of the
important constituetits essential for the
production of all crops."
Prof. F; A. Genth, of Piladelphia,
Penti., says: "The Guano is evidently of
atlittpl ot-igifi; and the minute bones
which wert discovered in the eame indi
cale th at it is the result of the decay of
hats, mice, &c. The quantitylof organit
matter whiclh is still present, is about, 12
per cent., and this yields about 2s per
crnt. or ammnin. A portion of the
nitrogen Is present as nitric acid, of
wthicts abou, 3 per cent. worc found., All
th'e nit rogen present would be equivalent,
to about 3i per cent. of ammonia. ,The'
phtosphiorio noid in the Guano averaged
ab,ot 12) per cent , equal to 27.5' per cet
of Bone P'hosphate. A oet.aderable
qnantity of the pho.ephorib acid, htow
ever, is present as so-called neutral Phos
phiato or Lime, which, being slighty
soluble In water, renders the Guano as
quick in its act ton as a corresponding
quantity of Sup~erplhosphates would do.
The snmnll percentisge of potash which was
tounti in analysisf adids to its value. From
ili the expyriments which I have made of
the Uinanaa'ei duano no doubt can exist
that i.t is an tatuable manure,"
Prot. It. C. White, of thie Georgia State
Agricultutral Society, says'- "Ase shownt
by J}o d'nalysis, this (ttano contrains, in
good'Tpi oportioin, ali thte elements which
are genteritly considered as of value for
plidat food, anud the feorms and- cotthlina-*
ti'o'fra itt which thy~ tare presents are snahi
art ti reader them available to and as.
ufrrtilable by (lie plant. I should judge
that the proper nise of this articeo for
purposes of' fertilization would be attend
it'd with great profit."
f're( Charles U. Sthepard, Jr., In a re
t'n t an-alfais of this Guano, says '' This

of a nm ionercial, manure."
