TAYLOR, SUCABOlfl. , . Tbi*Juration, although a national i*h of the Italians, and made best in the vicinity of Naples, is nevertheless manuiactured both in France and Ger many that of Aix in France bring par ticularly celebrated. It seems to r?q,:ire a particular description of wheat to give it that expansive power in water whrh makes the finest qualities, and its manu facture has not heretofore flourished much m this country, the consumption here being supplied chiefly by iinporta tion. lhose \vho are familinr with Ital ian comedy wiil remember the Neapoli tan macaroni-eater who figures so often, and who is always repainted as devour ing pieces of immense length, something as the conjuror does a roll of ribbon. It I is a vtry healthful and convenient arti cle of diet; ami if we examine the pro cess of manufacture, we shall see eonu especial reasons for patronising the home production. Farina is a sort of granu j late 1 wheat, the white or brittle p?rt of I the gram bring separated from the fibrous pnrt arid broktn into uniform grains, like I tine sand. Macaroni is made of farina. I ground and formed into dough by bein* mixed with distiUed water. This dou?t. is made very siif, and the mixing ami working o! it cannot be dune thorough without the aid of machinery. In Italy. I where machinery is expensive and sinew.v I ;?re cheap, the preliminary process i* I carried ou by treading it with the naked feet, and afurwards it is beaten ami I tnorc thoroughly mixed with the rollin"- I pin. M??- srs. linker & Brother, of the I CrotonMills, in this city, who have beer. no celebrated f, r their farina, and othu manufactures of wheat, have undertaken the production of macaroni, and in thei. works, open to the inspection of any ol I ?ur citizens, the process is car ried on I with an attention to neatness, quite suf-1 ficieut; to satisfy the most fastiu ous pal ate. Ihe operator scarcely touches theI ingredients, even with his wdl cleaned ingers, the wholo labor being performed I ? >y machinery worked with a powerful I s'eam engine. Much of cur Ameri ani wheat is especially adapted to the pur-1 pose, containing very litile fibrous mat-1 tor, and being b.ittle a id easily scpa-1 rated by pounding. When the" lloiir,| thus prepared, has been mixed with wa I ter and thoroughly kneadtd by ihe iron! -'news art has invented ur this purpose I :ho dough is placid in a polished iron cylinder, the lower end uf which is fi"e<i I with a movable me.allic plaU perforated I uniformly throughout. Through tlrstl iit:le hoi-s, the safl dauga is forced by a| very- powerful screw, worked by the en-1 gine. The perforations in the plat* or I ?' mold, as it is technically callcd, vai y | accniu.ng to tiie s tape ai.d detcriptiou | of the* article it is designed to produce ; the pipe, ribbon, and st*ir macaroni, and the different kinds of Vermicelli, have each a sepaiate pattern. Ihe dictionaries define macaroni as " a compound of flour, eggs, sugar and al monds : ' and vermicelli, as "a com pound of flour, sugar, and saffr on ; " and many persons have been al: aid to experi ment with EU'jh a siringe cuiinary mix ' ore. B it the productions of the Croton Mi.Is are composed simply, as described, <?1 Hour and wa.er; and we presume most of the imported (ail peihips, except the jel.ow, now iitue used) is made of the same articles, with such involuntary additii ns as may be acquired in the pe culiar process < f ina.iulbcture already noticed. The M .carjni and Vermicelli :ire Ixith made alike, except that the dough is made less stifT for the one, to accommodate the mold, 'those who have examined the pipe macaroni, which is a Uindsom) tubvi, witii a bore as smooth as that ol a tinished mu>ket, must have wandered hiw it could be formed so cheaply, as ii beajs the impress of b.in*; elaborately wrought, and yet the process is v?.iy simple. The dough wlvn force', through the f.mall he It a in the perforated piate, we u.d have the form of an iron rod, but for a small core fastened fi.iuly in the centre of each perforation by thin strips of metal. This converts the rod of dough into a tube, the pressure closin ; the slits which have Utu made by iLr sti ips that hold the core, leaving die pro duction in the fo;m which it finally bears. This invention is very aitcieut. and is srid to have first .suggested the manufacture of lead pipe. ihe mo.st critical part of the pre>cess o' manufac ture is the drying, as on this depends, in z great degree, its comparative quality. If dried too slowly, it becomes mouldy : and if too rapidly, it loses its toughness, and its whole character becomes changed. In our varying atrao-phere, rapidly al ternating drj a:sd humid, it requires not only consummate skill, but no little ex perience to avo.d laige losses Horn imper fect productions. The drying is done by the use of steam pipe *, where the degree of heat can be carefully adjusted, and occupics from five to ten days. When properly dried the Macaroni contains 110 more moisture than go.u dry wheat in the granary. 1 he best qualities now reta.l at about 25 cents per pound, and plain y coDked are far more palatable and nutricious than potatoes, and costs but little more. The whole-ale price is 10 to 18 ccnts ; but when flour is cheap it can be bought lor 9 t ? 12 cents. Re cipes for a variety cf savory dishes are put up with the American article in each packagc. Half a pound loded in miik until it is tender, and then salted and simply baked until it becomes browned, makes an excellent adwieiou to a dinner, and needs no other dressing.?.Ycir 1 ork Popcr. tC^The English papers announce t'be death Ql :l7.

Pure akd Ikpurs Gas.--It it the duty of our municipal authorities, says the Sc'entific American, to see that tich city is supplied with pure gas for illumination. They should, therefore, not unfrequently have the ga> as it comes from the burn ? ?r pipe*, analyzed by a competent chem ist. We are confident thst much of the gas which is supplied by our city gas companies is impure. All coils contain carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, n;trogen: and bituminous coals in general contain some sulphur In the distillation of ooal to produce illuminating gas. a considers* hie quantity of ammonia comes over, which, if not completely separated. is carried off with the gas. and detracts from its illuminating powers. It is also injurious to the people by inizine with the atmosphere, an<i br.ng inhaled at ev ?iry respiration. Being exceedingly vol atile, and yet not difficult to condense, much of it escapes through leaks in the gis conductors, and condenses in the soil beneath the stree s and buildings; this is evident when any ot our streets are trenched for the purpose of examining: p:pcs or opening drains. An odor of ammonia is always observable for a con* sidttable space around an exposed exca vation. If this is the case now, how much worse must the evil be in nine or ten years from the present date? The continued ac umulation of such an impurity iu the soil beneath our streets, will, in the course of time, find its way inlo drains, ot Z2 out into the at mosphere and pollute it. Nothing but pure carburated hydrogen should ever be > uttered to pass from the gas reservoirs into the conducting pipes:every impurity should ba removed from it in the course of the manulacture. If there is any sul \ hur in the Coal from which gas is made, it results in the production of sulphuric icid, which, if not separated in the puri iier, such a product will injure books and # cotton fabrics which may be in the apart ments where gas is burned. Cancel i-oal being free from sulpherets, is to bo preferred for making gas; and if our gas companies do n't now u?e the Amenoan anml in place ot bituminous coal, they exhibit an amazing want of g.*>d sense aid sound information in relation to the best kind of coal to employ in their bus iness.
