Chronicle and Transcript. What We Shall Do!
Car nf ighlor of the Trumbull Demo
crat is very much exercised about our
position on the Enow Nothing question.
He says that we, "while professing Anti
Slavery sentiments, yielded radical sup
port to the Know Nothings." Our an
ewtr to this awful charge is, that just so
far as the Know Noth'ngs, or any other
orpanix ition of men take thorough and
onsis ent Anti-Slavery action, just so far
we are withlhein, vxd no farther.' Wr.ere
ever the Enow Nothings have exerted an
AntfSlavery influence we are grateful to
them for it ; where their action has been
warpeJT)y "the influence of designing
men to "Pfo-Slavery ends we condemn
and denounce them. We do not belonj
to the order, because we are ignorant of
the 'precise nature .and .scope of their
aims, and tha means, to be used in ac
complishing them. "We shall never iden'
tify ourselves with them till these things
are made obvious to ni, and receive the
sanction of par judgment, acang inde
pendenllr jsnd -anbiassed. It may be
said here that we ought to know the ob.
jectt proposed to be accomplished by
tlie party in question, -that others know
them".. We onswer that we do not know
whether the -organization, taken as a
whole proposes to make those principles
nd measures which are known, primary
or i'econdoryl We long since took our
posiiiou on this point, and, never mean to
change ii;ht question of Slavery is the
question of the age, . the final settlement
of which .shall waft .us as a nation onward
to a destiny of glory; cr drown us in the
dreary wa'ers of despotL-m.; LSo far as
our action is concerned it never shall be
made secondary.' The party to which
we belong must blazon it on its banner,,
and that banner must always float over
the Vanguardl Whenever that party el

With these views,' it is obvious that, at
the present stage of its developement, the
Know Nothing rooyt ment cannot be es

among us and around us, acting with this,

justly founded claims to our respect, not.

"In 1776,' a patrotic fever broke out in
this country ' which became epidemic.
Our Father-in-law, then a youth, had a pro
longed and severe attack of the disease:
and once he was, with a large number of
afflicted, on the bnnk-sof the Delaware,
unnder the charge ef Djctor Geortr

regard all usury a species of extor
tion. But what is usury"? . Is the sub
ject of sufficient importance to warnnt
its investigation to claim our attention ?
So long as it is written in the answer to
the question, Lord, who shall abide in
thy tabernacle?" " lit that putteth Hut
out hit money Mtury" so long the sub
ject must be interesting to all who fear
God" and would "tcori riyhteousneu."
It is scarcely no essary lo ay that what
ever wai tl.e original meaning of appli
cation i( the terms use and usury, ety
mologies l!y considered, r.r as used in
common pat lance, or whatever ambigu
ity m.-iy in any time past have hung over
the meaning of the terra "usury," it has
come to have an appropriate and defi
According to a celt bra' ed author, there
are but two definitions of "usury," one,
"the taking of a greater interest than
the law allows" the other "the taking
of a greater interest than is usual or
common for men to take." The former
may be regarded a legal the latter a
moral definition of the term, and the
only one where law interposes no regu'a
tions where custom is the only law.
A renowned writer says, "Interest a.
a premium paid for money, is the mod
ern representation of the term usury."
From the same writer I further quo:e.
"Because of the rapacity of money deal
ers, brokers, usurers and bankers, the
abu-e of the practice in extorting in the
ratio of men's distresses and embarrass-"
ments exorbitant sums or the use of
money or anything else, the term usury
lias come into bad odor, and is now used
to represent exorbitant and illegal de
mands for the use of money ; and the
usurer is the ignoble title of the being
who exacts it. Still, all that was an
cknt'y affirmed of usury and usurers
may be still alleged of interest and money
lenders ; i:i other words, the 'tame rapac
ity and cruelty may.be represented by
interest and perpetrated by the demands
of interest that were formerly indicated
by the words usury and usurer. ' Sordid
avarice has ever been restless under the
provisions of the law limiting the rate of
interest. Usurers, far from being law
abiding citizens, have continually and
extortionary passed legal limits. En
couraged by success in trampling upon
law and justice with impunity, covetous-
ness waxed bold, and demanded, if not
a repeal of all law upon the subject, at
leatt an increase of the rate of interest
at once, and with unblushing impu-.
dence urged upon a late and unfortunate
legislature their past ex:ortionate infrac
tions of the law, as an indication of the
acquiescence of public, as the a conclu
sive agument for the change 1 . " i .'
Unfortunately for the interests of the
laboring' and necessary business-doing
citizens of our State, avarice and extor
tion bad their representatives there, in
and about that Legislature, in such num
bers and power, as with those who had
thought little and cared less about the
subject they lured in their wake, as to
pass an act acceding to ihe importunate
demands of covctousness, at least, so
far as to license oppression, and legalize
usury in all the latitude from 6 to. 10 pet
cent., while lawful interest was still con-,
tinned at 6 per cent. all the law will
now allow of, on any debt which sharp
ers or extortioners have not driven a hard "
bargain with thoe whose necessit.es :
have coinj el ed them to stipulate to pay
a higher rate 1 Artful, ii.sidious strat
egy, profound viliany, yclept legislation.
No law ever passed in this State was as .
suicidal in its tendency, and inflicted as :
direct and severe an injury to our vital ,
interests. To have unclad it of decep
tion and properly labeled it its title
should have been amended, and it called ..
by some right name, for instance, "An
act to legalize ex oriion and uury," or
"An act to make the rich richer and the
poor poorer," or an act most cffec.ually
to enable capital to op; rsss labor, or an
act to subvert moralitv and lo counttn-

the accoucheurs of the ct foreshad
owing the incalculable benefits of ths
gild, d chimeras in their syren songs,
filled with blessings promised lo the car,
but all since broken to the understanding -
and hearts of the people. There was
too much of the po ent logic of assump
tion and presumption based on conjec
ture, and energised with a zeal common ,
only to self interest, not to have been
viewed with suspicion and rejected as
fallacious. A cause that requires great
ingenuity and uncommon exertions to
sustain it, is generally founded on error,
and argument employed to prop it up, .
and support it, are more ofen suggested :
by love of interest, than love of truth
and justice. . - .
It was claimed, that as a State, we
had outgrown our monied means ncc
essary to promote whoL-some business
operations. Thatsuchalaw would reme
dy the evil, by causing capital from
abroad to flow toour Slate in such abund
ance seeking investments, that competi
tion would be a safeguard against usury,
and soon reduce the rates of interest to
less than the average then paid in the
Slate that the law remaining wouldevi
dently most approve of 6 per cent. that
good citizens generally would . be still
governed by it, and even the avaricious
would be coutent to limit their operations
within the legalized limits of ten per
cent., instead of comb niog to violate the
law, excelling in demands the legal and
prescribed limits of 6 per cent.
Nothing of the above has been realr
ized txcpt the rush of foreign capital
in:o our S-.ate, and to the hands of
Brokers. "Privileged by a pr'-rr.ium.of
per cent, interest above that allowed to
our banks, and with neither penalty nor

safety to curtail their accoin nodatinns to
their customers businessmen were com -
pelled to apply to them to make up the

of interest of from 20 to 30 per cent.
Let no farmer or mechanic suppose

or proof.

Correspondence of the Chronicle.
Friend Howard: Thinking vourself
and readers might be somewhat edified
by a communication from Southern Vir
ginia, I have concluded to address a few
lines to you.
This portion of the State, as you atp
aware, is very mountainous, abounding
in numerous mineral springs, all of which
are summer resorts for invalids and oth
ers that cannot spend money fast enough
at home. . The finest buildings to be
found in this part of the State are at these
Springs. Some are large enough to ac
commodate 700 boarders. Surrounded
by lofty mountains, and beautified by
fine gravel walks, and clear meandering
streams. The wa'er contains a very lit
tle sulphur, and as regards the medicinal
qualities, (you know I am not an M. D.)
I consider that the faith of the patient
and the out-door exercise, does more to
wards affecting a permanent cure, than
the purling water. I have in my mind
at this moment, a spring that is, ( for
medicinal qualities) far ahead of the
"Virginia Springs." It is situated in Mil
ton, Mahoning county, about half a mile
above Price's Mill. I will not enlarge on
this, for I am well awarethat it is use
less for a man of my dimensions to un
der;ake to injure the reputation of the
renewned "Virginia Springs."
With regard to Agriculture, ! can say
but little. I am not able to form any
definite opinion. The farmers have for
the last few years, been turning thir at
tention to stock raising, and the result
ol the experiment is, that they find it
much more profitable than raising ne
groes, and the consequence is, slavery
in this part of the Stale is very much on
the wane, and will eventually die out, (I
mean west of the mountains.) This con
clusion is founded on reason, forwiththe
increase of stock raising the decrease of
negro raising must be the result. In
stock raising the services of white men
are sought, and where it is not considered
degrading for whiles to labor, the mar
ket for blacks is sure to flag.
In this county, where a few years ago
you only found a few inferior cows, to
furnish milk for the black boys, you now
find large droves of Durham and other
fine cattle grazing on the mountain side.
One farmer in this county has now on
hand "700 fine large cattle, and many
others from 3 to 500. There has also
been a. great improvement iu hoises.
Where a few ye trs ago jou would only
see a negro with "old Vthilv. an!
shovel plow, you now see a white man
with a fine, team and Yankee pi w,"
and what has been the cause of this great
ange ? Asl have sta'ed, it is simply
this. Farmers find it much more pleas
ant and profitable to raise cattle and
horses, and that with the increase of
stock rais'ng the decrease of negio rais
ing must be the natural result. I am
fully covinced that slavery in Western
Virginia will in a very few years be
numbered with the things that were.
. I am fully satisfied that "internal im
provements" will do more towards rid
ding this country of slavery than any
other "one thing. None are sold here
now except those that become unruly cr
are guilty of some offence ; they arc not
raised ior me market at all. xt is impos
sioie lor v estern v irgmia to occome
thickly settled at present. The reason is
this. A few men own all the land, and
will not sell it, but the time is coming
when this country will teem with its
thousands instead of hundreds as ut
I am getting too lengthy,(a great fail
ing of mine,) and will only a Id a few
words by way of conclusion.
"Old Virginia" is about to undergo a
great political change. The political
horizon is growing darker and darker ;
the Demociatic party that have so long
ruleJ with absolute sway are on the verge
of a yawning abyss, and before ano her
six months roil round, will be hurled to
the bottom ; there will unly be o:ie groan
and all will be over. The "Know Noth
ings" are "omnipotent" here as well as
in Texas, where "Sam" comes from, and
Wise (the candidate for Governor,) is
strong against thein, and the probability
is that Mr. Wise wi 1 be defeated by an
overwhelming majority.
Some of his friends ihit.k he will not
run. ue tnis as it may, n: n slumping
the State and will be defea ed. The old
parties seem lo be entirely broken up ; as
much so a in the North.

Congress—The Last Hours.
As usual, they had rather a stormy
time at the capital o.i the 3J. The civil
find diplomatic bill was passed at 1 o'clock
P. M. The amendment to the Navy
Bill making -an appropriation for seven
war-sloops was deft ated
Mr. Seward proposed an amendment,
that the Ocean Steamer bill, just vetoed,
be al ered by striking out the clause,
rep aling the power to give notice to
Collins, of discontinuance of the extra
allowance, and compel l ng him to build
a n w stea ner: - Unanimously passed.
In f e House Mr. Faulkner made some
remark concerning Fremont, which
brought Benton to lib feet in a passLn.
Mr. F. disclaimed anything derogatory
to Fremont. " After some rather anima
ted debate upon the President's veto of
the Steam r bil', they wound up with Ihe
following :
It was resolved that all business in the
private calender, at the close of the ses
ion, be referred to the Co nmittee on
Claims. The House concurred in the
Senate's amendment to the bi I requiring
prepayment of postage in all cases, and
prepayment in postage stamps after next
Mr. Wentworth, of Mass., from Com
mittee on Commerce, reported a bill pre
venting the introduction of foreign pau
pers, criminals, insane and blind persons.
Mr. Breckenridge, in examining the
bill, stigmatized it as anti-Repnblican.
It is one of the fruits of that spirit which
is now sweeping like a hurricane over the
land. He denounced the K. N.'s was
willing to abide the time when there
would be a reaction in public sentiment.
Emigrants must come here with a pass,
like negroes going from one plantation to
another. .
Mr. Campbell knew nothing about the
new organization, and asked Mr. B.,
whether he had not understood that the
gentleman who reported the bill was not
swept down by the hurricane.
Mr. Breckenridge replied that he had
so understood.
Mr. C. Then why charge this-bill
with being introduced undtr a Know
Nothing spirit?
Mr. Breckenridge understood that Mr.
Wentworth was defeated for Congress by
that organization, but thought it probable
that the gentleman introduced the bill to
put an extinguisher on Know Nothing
ism. He would rather tiust next Con
gress, which, it is said, will be full of
Know Nothings, rather than have this
bill thrown in this House, patched up to
compromise the subject. The bill re
quires every human being coming hither
to obtain a certificate or pass, and makes
an odious distinction between the rich
and the poor.
Mr. W. denied that this bill spru ig in
the House. It had been printed more
than two months, and had been duly
considered by the Committees on Com
merce and Judiciary. It was done in
accordance with a demand of the Atlan
tic States, which only asked that Europe
keep her own worthless population at
home, and not pour them into this coun
try for us to maintain.
Mr. Davis, of Ind., voted to lay this
bill on the table.
No quorum vo ed, but subsequently
appeared, and the bill was tabled yeas
67, nays 53.
Proceedings throughout were orderly,
No insults or fights as heretofore.
Reports from all Committees of Con
ies ence on disagreeing vo'es between the
two Houses, concerning amendments,
were adopted. Resolutions were passed
giving extra pay to sundry persons em
ployed in and about the capitoh Some
other business was transacted, but the
details are not worth telegraphing.
8:30 A. M. No quorum. Anothfi

that lAe Sergean -at-Aims be sent up to
compel the attendance of members.
Mr. Pratt want; d to know whether il

Important Liquor Case in Cincinnati-
Important Liquor Case in Cincinnati-Charge and Sentence by the Court.
J. J. Jones, a :ollt-e-housf keejer, was
tried before Judge Paiker on the 9th, on
an indictment found against him in June,
for keeping a house of habitual resort,
where intoxicating liquors were sold and
drank on the premises. A large number
of citizens of Lockland, who rejoice thai
the law has stepped in lo abate a nuisance
that has defied moral or any other kind
of suasion, attended the trial as witnesses.
It was proved that the house was kept as
a place of habitual resort where intoxi
cating liquors were sold and drnnk on
the premises, and that liquor had been
sold to minors. We copy from the Ga
zette the charge and sentence by Judge
Gentlemen of the Jury: The defendant
is indicted under the second section of the
"Act to provide against the cils resulting
from the sale of intoxicating liquors in the
Slate of Ohio," it is as follows : "It shall
be unlawful for any person or ersons,
agents or otherwise, to sell intoxicating
liquors to minors, unless on the written
order of their parents, guardians, or fam
ily physician ;" and under the fourth sec
tion, which is as follows:
"All places where intoxicating liquors
are sold, in violation ot this act, shall be
taken, held and declared to be common
nuisances, and all room, taverns, eating
rooms, bazaars, restaurants, groceries,
coffee-houses, cellars, or other places of
public resort, where intoxicating liquors
are sold, in violation of this act, shall be
shut up and abated as public nuisances,
upon the conviction of the keeper there
of." Another section provides that as essen
tial to a conviction, it is not necessary
thai the kind of liquor should be described,
or that the name of the persons to whom
sold should be stated, and in all coses the
law allows the persons or persons to whom
intoxicating liquors are sold in violation
of the law, to be competent as witnesses
lo prove such fact, or any other tending
thereto. This being the law, it is not for
you, gentlemen of the Jury, whatever
your private opinion may be, as to the
expediency of the law, to do else than de
cide from the evidence, if the defendant
has violated the law. Neither the Court
or Jury have any right to interpose their
private opinions in the discharge of their
duty under oath. All law-abiding citi
zees should abide bv and conform to
laws, as this has been decided to be con
stitutional bv the Supreme tribunal in
Ohio. The duty of the Jury is simple,
clear, and specific. Did the defendant
violate the law, as shown by tcstimr.ny
adduced in Court ? It mokes no differ
ence in your finding, whether he deemed
the law unconstitutional.' The public are
not the constituted judges to determine
this, unless their determination is express
ed in their bu'Io.s to change the law.
He who disrespects law, can claim no
exemption from the penalties of the law,
because he diflered from the law-makers
as to the propriety of its enactment.
The question for your consideration! is,
did the defendant under the first count
sell or jzive away to minors intoxicating
liquors unlawfully, or keep a house of
resort for selling liquors other than beer,
wine, cider, &c, to he drunk on the
premises? If he did, he is guilty, and
must be responsible for this violation of
law ; if he did not, you are to sny so.
The giving away cf intoxicating liquors,
or other shift or device to evade the law,
is deemed to be and is held to be an un
lawful selling ; if you find that he has
violated the law by such an attempt to
evade it, you are bound under your oath
to find him guilty. This is the law until
it is repealed, and the law pronounces
that places kept as the house of the de
fendant is alleged to be kept, are public
nuisances and are lo be abated. You
can, if yoy so find, render a verdict of
not guihy, or guilty as the case may be
of either or both of the counts of the in
dictments, or guilty as to one, naming it,
and not of the other. . ion can rctre,
gentlemen, and the Court will regain ia
session until 12J o'clock; if your verdict
be not rendemJ before that hour, and
agreed on during the recess of the Court,
a sealed one may be allowed.
The Jury retired on the charge frjm
;he Court, and in fifeen minutes returned
u iih a verdict of guilty as charged in the
indiclineut. Nc motion having been
made' in arrest of judgment, the Court
proceeded to sentence the prisoners.

Grand Jury of the county have indicted
you lor violating the Act of May 1, 1S54,

have you anything to say why the sen
tence of the law should not be pronounct d
in vour case f
Prisouer Yes, Judge, I will make a
few remarks which I think are essential.
It is well understood that I cm an old
num. and not able to work. I have for
time kept a drinking house for the
support of my family; and this very pros
ecution was commenced and earnei
jou 'h bv Sihe work. The first wimss
this case is the man that caused it
IIj ntver saw liquor drank in my house ;
but to enlrap me, sent two boys to drink
my bar ; he had me brought before
the Mavor ; the Mayor had me brought
before tha Grand Jury; th-y found a bill
against me, and here I am. I ask noth
ing but justice ; what is honest and just
between men. Yon have a right, Judge,
sentence mo as you p!ease, of course.
. The Court The fact that a man in vi-
o'.ating the laws of the land, is doing it to
make a bring, is no mor n justification
the wrotig and crime, loan thai ol steal,
to nmke a suppjrt fjr his family.
While ihe conMitatio.i provil.s that a
man may, and has a right to choose his
empioyimnl io make a living, it does no!
eld him from the penal:ie: of iolating

fiijlinitui ia the discrelio.i of the Court,
this violation is not visited lo the full ex
tent thereof, but the Court is determined
fearlessly and strictly to discharge its duty
in all cases brought Ix fo e it. All good
citizens must respect this act, as it is the
law ot the land, and the constitutionality
of which has been sustained bv the Su-
pr mc Tribunal of the State.

; The Gazette states that there tr.s ten
liquor cases on 'lie docket of Judge Park
er's' Ccurt7 which have I Le ,-n "'continued

ion of the constitutionality of the Liquor

On Friday the Grand Jury made a re
port, returning twenty-five indictments
for violating the Liquor Law, and three
for giving Gifi Concerts or managing lot
teries. The Times states that the Grand
Jury are not half through wiih ihe coffee
houses, and an exciting time may be
looked for in a few da s.
The old liquor cases are still delayed
by counsel fbr deftnlants. The point
urged by the liquor sellers is, that the
Court of Common Pleas has no jurisdic
tion over these cases. A defect in the
law abolishing the Criminal Court is the
ground work for this motion. . The Times
of Friday says :
The effect of the liquor law now in op
eration, is already observable in the di
minution of crime, nnd the scarcity
street drunkards. Not a single arrest
was made by the polic. yesterday, and
but one this morning. This is, indeed,
rarity for Cincinnati, and if this be not
the cause, we are at losi to know to what
to attribute if.
. The State law may not in all cases be
observed, but there is that wholesome
fear of its penalties which prevents the
giving of liquor to men to an extent that
intoxicates. In this respect, if in no-other,
the benefit of the law is already perceptible.
Virginia and Ohio.
It has been claimed there is "virtue in
stones." At least so thought the old man
who found a rude boy in his apple tree.
Virginia not the state of Virginia but
Virginia politicians, are trying what vir
tue there is in stones upon their brethren
in Ohio of the Slave Democracy, to make
them come down from their high and
virtuous assumptions on Slavery, publish
ed at the late 8th of January convention.
The Richmond Enquirer is disposed to
be easy with the brethren, and soften
down the declaration that (as expressed
in their resolutions) they deem it to be
'th- ir duty lo use all power clearly given
by the teimsof the nalionul compact to pre
vent its (Slavery's) increase," to mean
just nothing at all ! For, says the En
quirer, "Is not the denunciation of Slave
ry really emasculated by the qualifying
reference to 'power clearly given. -c'
Not so, says the Richmi nd Examiner:
You, Mr. Enquirer, may throw turf, but
we will tiy what virtue there is in stones!
After conceding that there is a little more
"nationality" in the "Northern Demo
crrtic party" than in any other consider
able body ot politicians in the free States,
it repudiatrs the idea of looking to any
party at the North for orthodoxy on the
Slavery question. It calls upon the
South to arm herself r ith stones and to
to stand ready to defend her rights. It
says :
"She must not consent to overlook ex
ceptionable conduct in her allies and
must keep the understanding ever uppermost
and alive in their mind, that the
alliance is lo last only while the most
jealous self-respect shall tolerate it
"There are two conditions necessary
to the continuance of llvs alliance. - The
first is a scrupulous observr nee of all the
safeguards that are drawn by the Con
stitution around the domestic institutions
of the Statts.- The second is a friendly
abstinence from all indirect assault and
censure upon those institutions, which is
olten more insulting, if not injurious,
lhan direct attack through the forbidden
agency of Government. It is not an ally
that shall constantly remind us of our
unworthiniess f his countenance and sup
port, and shall embrace every occasion
lit or unfit, to lecture us phari-aically upon
tlie exceeding depravity of the institu
tions he is leagued with us to protect,
that the South desires or will tolerate.
;'It is precisely this "sort of alliance
that s proffered us by Ohio Democracy."
It proceeds to quote the resolutions of
the Ohio Convention, nnd then pays it
the following piquant compliment : .
"There is more honestv in downright
rampant abolitionism, than in such cow
ardly, sneaking, miserable cozenage.
There Gentleman of the Slave Dem
ocracy of Ohio take that ! We call
that a full discharge, right smack ic your
faces, from the catapult of fclavery.
Uowdoyou feel? 1 here is mora honesty
in downright, rampant abolitionism,"
than in such cowardly, sneaking, cheat
ing rascals as you are ! Put the stones
in y cur pocket come down on your
marrow bones and beg the old man's
pin on but don't dare to throw back !

Coal Smoke.
At a recent meeting r t the " London
Instituiion of C.vil Engineers," a paper
was read " on the means of avoiding
smoke from boiler furnaces," bv Mr. W.
Woodcock. It was ttaied that' ordinary
pit coal under the process of destructive
distillation, gave off various- volatile sub
stances, some of which were gases, such
as hydrogen," " marsh gas," "defiant
gas," "carbonic oxide," io. Thr se end
others existed in the furnace only in a
gasseoui state, f coming liquid or solid
wnen in me external air, and or such coal
tar was composed, and amidst them th"
carbon, in tninut sub-division, was held
in suspension, giving to the su.o!e its sa
ble hue. All these ga-ei wtro n inbiis
tible, at given temp, r.iturrs, provided a
certain amount of oxygen was present.
It was shown that the atr cotitiunii.g this
-x i'gov J?,. Jmpa i.ted ..to the, .gis, .aj'tc r
leaving the fuel on the bus, must be ad
miiilsli red s as n t to reduce the tem
perature of ih gaw'Wow ilifir fYiwre
poinLt" The simplest means cf prevent
i'ig the formation of the Mrmks were
shown to be by providing for an ample,
supply of oxygen in a condensed stiitf.in'
the form ofctdd air, to the fuel on tlie fire
bars and by admiiii.-tering such furlher
supply of oxygen to th! heated gases as
might he necessary for ilitir complete
combustion whilst in contact with the
boiler this latter supply bring given at
such a temperature as would insure the
successive ignition-of tle gasses as they
were evolved. Tnns - by establishing
nearly perfect primary combustion, tl-.e
quantity of smoke evolved was s'lown to
be reduced to a niiuimuin of which no
iracc ever reached the summir of the
chimin y. The apparatus by whic-h this
desirable end was described, and it wis
stated that the results have been very sat
isfactory, that al Messrs. Mix's Brewery,
where the means have been tried, there
was not the slightest appearance of
opaque smoke from the chimney, and that
the money saving would not onlv, from
the more perfect combustion of tlie fuel,
but from the use of an inferior qna'tity pf
coal, at a lower price, amount to full
twenty per cent. This success was so
great as lo warrant t ie introduction of
the apparatuj to the more genera! notice
ol the profession and the public through
out the Institution of Civil Engineers. -
