DESTRUCTIVE PROPERTIES OF COAL
A voluminous and important report has
been presented to the City Court of Sewers,
in London, by Dr.Letheby, Professor of Chem
istry and Toxicology in the London Hospital,
upon the destructive qualities of gas. He
states that sulphuric acid is produced by the t
combustion of the gas, and that little or no
’ ammonia escapes to neutralize it. 1 lie Pro
fessor then proceeded to examine the ques
tion as to the effects of this destructive com- j
pound on various articles of furniture &c., and i
produced specimens of leather, paper, cotton, '
and linen to prove that the corrosive power
of the acid is very considerable, and said:
“It may now be asked whether I can sug-1
Set any remedy for the evil. I reply that ;
e remedy is threefold: First, in respect of j
the manufacture of the gas: secondly, as re- j
garde its purification: and, thirdly, in n more
perfect system of ventilation. At present
gas is manufactured from materials which j
are known to contain a large per ccntage of j
bi-sulphuret of iron, and the temperature at i
which the gas is made is far too high for
sanitary purposes. Secondly. Although much I
attention has been directed to the purification .
of gas from one or two of its impurities, little ,
or no notice has hitherto been taken of the j
most important of all, namely, bi-sulphate of
carbon. This, I believe, has been in conse
quence of the difficulty which the public have
in recognising it: and a hope has therefore
been entertained that it would pass unnoticed.
It is, however, one of the most formidable ot
all the impurities contained in coal gas.
Thirdly. It is advisable that gas should be
burnt outside the room or shop whenever it is
practicable; and. when this is not the case,
the products of the combustion should be con- j
veyed away by a special contrivance as spee
dily as possible; indeed, they ought not to be
allowed to escape into the room at all. I am
quite sure that many elegant arrangements
may be suggested for this purpose whenever
the public are made aware of Us importance.
Tnese views are not entirely now to us,
though the subjec* has never been brought
very prominently beforetlie American public.
We have been told that the principal reason
why the Astor Library is not opened at night
aside from the generally thin attendance at
liberaries in this city in the evenings, is the
destructive effect of gas upon the books.
The London booksellers have found that gas
ta so ruinous to their stock that they have
almost universally discontinued its use; and
in those cases where it is used it is provided
with an apparatus for carrying all the dis
charged gases out of the apartment. W hat is
worse, it is found that the gas is most destruc
tive to the finest kinds of binding and that the
Russian suffers more than any other.—A. I.
Miss Landon, better known as ‘L. E. L.,’
til popular during her life, by reason ot her
•entimental poetry. But her permanent fame
will be secured by her descriptive verses.
U«re is a passage:—
It is most sad to watch the fall
Of autumn leaves!—but worst of all
It is to watch the flower of Spring
Faded in its tresh blossoming!—
To see the once so clear blue orb
Its summer light and warmth forget,
Dark’ning beneath its tearful lid,
Like a rain-beateu violet!
To watch the banner-rose of health
Pass from the cheek:—to mark how plain,
Upon the wan and sunken brow,
Become the wanderings of each vein!
The shadowy hand so thin and pale!
The languid step, the drooping head!
The long wreaths of neglected hair!
The lip whence red and smile are fled!
And having watch’d thus, day by day,
Light, life and color pass away,
To see at length, the glassy eye
Fix dull in dread mortality,
Till the grave sets its sign of death.
