The Late Frightful Explosion
"What is Nitro-Glycebixe ? The fluid
known as liitro-jjlycerine is the same
that exploded in Greenwich street, New
York, last November, wounding several
persons and blowing out the front of
the Wyoming Hotel ; and also another
in San Francisco, lately, causing the
death of eight or more persons, and
damage of property to the value of
$200,000. Glycerine is the sweet prin
ciple of oil, and is extensively used for
the purpose of toilet ; but it has now
received an application of rather an un
expected nature. In 1847 a pupil of
3L. 1 elouse s, AL. obrero, discovered
that glycerine, when treated with nitric
acid, was converted into a higly explo
sive substance, which he called nitro
glycerine. It is oily, heavier than wa
ter, soluble in alcohol or ether, and
acts so powerfully on the nervous sys
tem that a single drop placed on the tip
of the tongue will cause a violent head
ache, which will last for several hours.
The liquid seems to have been almost
forgotten by chemists, and it is only
now that M. Nable, a Swedish engineer,
has succeeded in applying it to a very
important branch of his art namely,
blasting. From a paper addressed by
him to the Academy of Science, we
hear that the chief advantage which
this substance, composed of one part of
Ulycernie unci three parts ot nitric acid,
possesses, is that it requires a much
smaller hole or chamber than gunpow
der does, the strength of the latter be
ing scarcely one-tenth of the former.
Hence, the miner's work, which, accord
ing to the hardness of the rock, repre
sents five to twenty times the power of
the gunpowder used, is so short that the
cost of blasting is often reduced by
fifty per cent. The process is very
easy. If the chamber of the mine pre
sents fissures, it must be lined with
clay to make it water-tight ; this being
done, the nitro-glycerine is poured in
the water after it, which, being the light
er liquid remained at the top. A slow
match with a well charged percussion
cap at oue end then is introduced into
the nitro-glycerine. The mine may be
sprung by lighting the match, there
being no need of tamping. On the 7th
of June last, three experiments were
made with this new compound in the
open part of the tin mines of Altenburg
in Saxony. In one of theses a chamber
thirty-four millimeters in diameter was
made perpendicularly in a dolmitic rock,
sixty feet in length, and at a distance
of fourteen feet from its extremity, which
was vertical. At a debt hot" eight feet a
vault tilled with clay was found, in con
sequence of which the bottom of the hole
was tamped, having a depth of seven
feet. One litre and a half of iiitro-2.lv-
cerine was then poured in ; it occupied
five feet ; a match and a stopper were
then applied, as stated and the mine
sprung. The effect, was so enormous as
to fissure fifty feet in length, and an
other twenty feet.
The blasting oil, or nitro-glycerine of
Mr. Noble, is a chemical compound of
six equivalents of carbon, five equiva
lents of hydrogen, three equivalents of
oxygen, and three of nitric acid, express
ed scientifically by the formula
C9 115 03 (N 05)3,
Particularly it is composition of
seventy-five per cent, of nitric acid and
twenty-five per cent, of glycerine oil.
A scientific calculation of the volume
of gases, developed by the combustion
of this compound and the combustion
of good gunpowder, proves that nitro
glycerine, compared with gunpowder,
possesses thirteen times its power when
volumes are compared, and eight times
its power for equal weight. Therefore,
where eight pounds of gunpowder are
wanted, one pound of nitro-glycerine
will be sufficient to produce the same
"What "Writixgs Require A Stamp.
TVe publish the following for the ben
efit of our readers. There are few of
us who have not or will have cause to
stamp instruments of writing of some
1st. Instruments of writing dated be
fore October 1, 18C2, do not require
2d. Those dated between October 1,
1862, and August 1, 1864, may be
stamped either before or after use by
the court, register or recorder.
3d. Those dated since August 1, 1864,
and not twelve months old, may be
stamped before a United States Collec
tor without payment of the penalty of
4th. Those dated after August 1,
1804, and more than twelve months old,
can be stamped upon the payment of
the penalty of $50.
An exchange very amusingly says
that the most extraordinary instance of
patience on record, in modern times, is
that of a judge, who listened silently
for two days, while a couple of wordy
attorneys contended about the construc
tion of an act of the Legislature, and
then ended the controversy by quietly
remarking, " Gentlemen, the law is re
pealed." "What a queer fellow the Frenchman
must have been who, for twenty years,
loved a lady, aud never missed passing
his evenings at her house. She became
a widow. "I wish you joy," cried his
friend ; "you may now marry the wo
man you have so long adored." Alas,"
said the poor Frenchman, profoundly
dejected: "and if so where shall I spend
my evenings ?"
The artificial propagation of fish is
getting to be quite a business in Maine,
and is likely to be carried on still more
extensively than now.

Revenue Stamps may be used indiscriminately
upon any of the matters or things enumerated in
schedule B, except proprietary and playing card
6tamps, for which a special use has been provided.
Postage stamps cannot be used in payment oi
the duty chargeable on instruments.
It is the duty of the maker of an instrument to
affix and cancel the stamp thereon. If he neglects
to do so, the party for whom it is made, may
stamp it before it is used ; and if used after the
30th of J uly, 1804, and nsed without a stamp, it
cannot afterwards be effectually stamped. Any
failure upon the part of the maker of an instru
ment to appropriately stamp it, renders him lia
ble to a penalty of two hundred dollars.
Suits are commenced in many States by other
process than writ, viz : summons, warrants, pub
lication, petition, &c, in which case these, as the
original proeess, severally require stamps.
Writs of scira facias are subject to stamp duty
as original processes.
The jurat of an affidavit, taken before a Justice
of the Peace, Notary Public, or other oflicei duly
authorized to take affidavits, is held to be a cer
tificate, and is subject to a stamp duty of five
cents, except when taken in suits of legal proceed
ings. Certificates of loan in which there shall appear
any printed or written evidence of an amount ot
money to be paid on demand or at any time de
signated, are subject to stamp duty as Promisory
The assignment of a mortgage is subject to the
same duty as that imposed upon the original in
strument; that is to say for every sum of five
hundred dollars, or any fractional part thereof, of
the amount secured by the mortgage, at time of
its assignment there must be affixed a stamp or
6tamps, denoting a duty of five cents.
When two or more persons join in the execution
of fin instrument, the stamps to which this instru
ment is liable under the law, may be affixed and
cancelled by one of the parties.
In conveyances of real estate, the law provides
that the stamp affixed must answer to the value
of the estate ou interest conveyed.
No stamp is required on any warrant of attor
ney accompanying a bond or note, when such
bond or note has affixed thereto the stamp oi
stamps denoting the duty required, and whenever
any bond or note is secured by mortgage, but one
stamp duty is required on such papers, such
stamp duty being the highest rates required for
such instruments, or either of them. In such a
case a note or memorandum of the value or de
nomination of the stamp affixed should be made
upon the margin or in the acknowledgement of
the instrument which is not stamped.

THE KIDNEYS ARE "TWO IN NUMBER,,
situated at the upper part of the loin, sur
rounded by fat aud consisting of three parts, viz:
The Anterior, the Interior, and the Exterior.
The anterior absorbs. Interior consists of tis
sues or veins, which serve as a deposit for the
urine and convey it to the exterior. The exterior
is a conductor also, terminating in a single tube
and called the Ureter. The ureters are connected
with the bladder.
The bladder is composed of various coverings
or tissues, divided into parts, viz : the Upper, the
Lower, the Nervous, and the Mucous. The upper
expels, the lower retains. Many have a desire to ,
urinate without the ability, others urinate without
the ability to retaiu. This frequently occurs in
To cure these affections we must bring Into
action the muscles, which are engaged in their
various functions. If they are neglected, Gravel
or Dropsy may ensue.
The reader must also be made aware, that how
ever slight may be the attack, it is 6ure to affect
his bodily health and mental powers ; as our flesh
aud blood are supported from these sources.
GOUT, OR RHEUMATISM.
Pain occurring in the loins is indicative of the
above diseases. They occnr in persons disposed
to acid stomach and chalky concretions.
The gravel ensues from neglect or improper
treatment of the kidneys. These organs being
weak, the water is not expelled from the bladder,
but allowed to remain ; it becomes feverish and.
sediment forms. It is from this deposit that the
stone is formed and gravel ensues.
Is a collection of water in some parts of the body,
and bears different names, according to the parts
affected, viz: when generally diffused over the
body, it. is called Anasarca; when of the abdomen,
Ascites ; when of the chest, Hydrothorax.

Philadelphia, Pa., February 25, 1857.
H. T. Helmeold, Druggist,
Dear Sir: I have been a sufferer for upwards of
twenty years, with gravel', bladder, and kidney
affections, during which time I have used various
medicinal preparations, and been under the treat
ment of the most eminent physieiaus, experienc
ing but little relief.
Having seen your preparations extensively ad
vertised, I consulted with my family physician in
regard .to using your Extract Buchu.
I did this because I had used all kinds of ad
vcrtised remedies, and had found thein worthless,
and some quite injurious : in fact, I despaired of
ever getting well, and determined to use no reme
dies hereafter unless I knew of the ingredients.
It was this that prompted me to use your remedy.
As you advertised that it was composed of buchu,
cubebs, and juniper berries, it occurred to me
and my physician as an excellent combination,
and, with his advice, after an examination of the
article, and consulting again with the druggist, I
concluded to try it. I commenced its use about
eight months ago, at which time I was confined
to my room. From the first bottle I was aston
ished and gratified at the beneficial effect, and
after using it three weeks was able to walk out.
I felt much like writing you a full statement of
my case at that time, but thought my improve
ment might only be temporary, and therefore con
cluded to defer and see if it would effect a perf ect
cure, knowing then it would be of greater value
to you and more satisfactory to me.
I am now able to report that a cure is effected
after using the remedy for five months.
I have not used any now for three months, and
feel as well in all respects as I ever did.
Your Buchu being devoid of any unpleasant
taste and odor, a nice tonic and invigorator of tho
system, I do not mean to be without it whenever
occasion may require its use in such affections.
Should any doubt Mi. McCormiek's statement,
he refers to the following gentlemen :
Hon. Wm. Bigler, ex-Governor, Pennsylvania.
Hon. Thos. B. Florence, Philadelphia.
Hon. J. C. Knox, Judge, Philadelphia.
