* as far as ithas been trind in this cuntery ,
the expectedl resules;anmd the Ilbours oef A
merican Chemibts have not hitherto .beena
entirely successful.
When Professor Ehlet made hmis first eX?
periments ini the manmufacture of* Explosive
Cotton, hee was in possession of no furth~er
-infurmation of the muaterials of which it
wvas composed,. than that cottoni was a pamrt,
and thaot an c~plosive suibstanece haWl been
oreplared, whuich had nmny of the proper
ties mafgun piowder. From his v'ery arem~u
r ite knowledge of Chemnistry an agrent PaW
-gested itself to him, whlich lhe t~houeght wuonhil
pirodutce a like result,.*and his first expmeri
mient with Nitric Acid, succeeded i'beyond
his moat sanguine c'xpectatioins. This took
place o'n the 1 4th of' Octobei- last. Oni the
31st of thu same month, hie used a umi xteere
or Sulphuric aind Nitric Acid, which was
stil more satisfactoary, and on the 19th of
November ho completed hils process feor the
:manufacturo of the Explosive Ceotuen.
whlich lie hins communicaeted in a letter ad-.
airessed to'time commilttee of the Ilouise, teo
be ltied before thme Legislature.
It) i too soon y'et to predict whmat mayv
bethe. co~nsequiences of this discovery toi
the world. 'It Is supposed to possess man my
qualities for practical use far superioer Ida
gun powder, anid it is possible tha t this
great element of haumanm destruction, wvhmich
has exerted such an imnportanit influee on
the condition ofsociety, may bo entiirely
stiperseded byv the new discovery. A momang
some of. thme remarkable properties of the
Explosive Cotton whiichi yourt commit ve
might enumerate, it-is said to possess fur
times greater. power than m gun powdver, ad
it has been estimated in weuighat as high~h as
one0 of thme former to seveti of thme hatter.
