Silver/Jity, May 1,1869
MlNINQ Commissioner Raymond,
in a recent address to the Academy
of Sciences, advances the following
practical and progressive ideas, as
we And them in the M. & S. Press :
The pan silver process of Washoe,
though at first considered unscientific
in the sense of chemical affinity, has
proven itself strictly so. and'more
profitable, consequently more va!n~
able than either the Friberg. Patio
or other processes of European or
Mexican origin,against which it bat
tled for supremacy. This is purely
an American system, and has become
quite popular elsewhere, as well as
To improve the Knox pan, as first
introduced,there have been innumer
able new inventions, to enumerate
which would be quite a task ; but
the most prominent of which are
the Varney, Wheeler & Hepburn
pans, none however presenting any
thing new in point of chemical ope
rations, but each varied in mechani
On the otaer hand, we have those
who are ostracizing the iron pan
working, and paying no respect to
past systems, usages or ideas, but
who are plowing up new ground in
the broad fields of electric, chemical
and mecbanicat science, and who
may yet present a system superior to
all ; having strong claims in both a
scientific and practical sense. Step
by step we are certainly moving up
to a more superior system of work
ing. One fact which inspires us with
confidence in this respect, is the re
markable success that has attended
experiments upon the several sys
tems. Who will carry off the palm
of introducing what will be general
ly accepted as the " American Sys
tem '*— which must embrace the
greatest economy with perfectness
of working, economy both ns re
spects machinery and manipulation, t
we will not pretend even to conjee-1
ture. It is the battle of a few ard
ent workers for the favors of the
multitude, who have no greater ap
preciation, though we are sorry to
say it, than the benefit it will be to
them in gold and silver.
That there should be some plan
adopted," either by State or National
government, whereby statistics can
be gathered and made available and
profitable to all, is evident to every
experimenter, inventor or millman,
who thinks and desires to acquire
information of tbe progress of his
pursuit, as well as those who desire
it in tbe sense of science, or as Ja
question of political economy. The
Pacific States are the raining States
of the Union, anil it is for them to
devise a plan, which at the least ex
pense may bring about that order
of things for the mining interest,
which shall prove the greatest good
to the greatest number. To this end
we shall earnestly look for sugges
In these progressive times we
must not, in our conceit, be content
with what we have, only, and what
we are doing, individually, but
reach out for something better, if
it can be had, for individual as well
as the general good.
Explosives was tbe subject of a
paper read by Mr. Ewer of tbe Miu-1
ing ami Scientific Press before the j
Mechanics institute in San Francisco |
on the 5th :
He gave a history of the discovery
and introduction of gunpowder,
guncotton and nitro-glycerine. He j
said the latter was known about j
twenty-five years ago, but has been
in use only about six ye^rs. Its ex-1
ceedingly dangerous qualities have j
been in a great measure removed,

He spoke of the qualities of
giant powder and its effects on the
health of miners. Constitutions are
variously affected by it, some suffer
ing sqyiously, while others seem im
pervious to its influences,resembling
the poison oak in these respects.
Experiments are being constantly
tried, with a view of removing these
objectionable features, and much
has already attended these
efforts, and there can be little doubt
that within a short time the giant
powder will be so perfected as to be
harmless to health. By diagrams on
a blackboard, the power of gunpow
der, guncotton and giant powder
were compared. A series of exper
iments, instituted by the Austrian
Government, proved that 5 pounds
of giant powder, 25 pounds of gun
