Wliy are coke aud charcoal fires free om smoke T Uor.ause the moisture has been prc ously dissipated ; this moisture pro icing the smoke of coal fires. Why docs too much coal on a fire jttse the chimney to smoke ? Because when the heat begins to opc ate on the coal, gas is, extricated ; this ;u!s carrying some of the grosser parti es along with it, a heavy smoke is hJown out, which will not rise in the Miimney, tmi ny us own snivity is iui :ed into the room ; on which the warm tir of the apartment being lighter than Because small portions of one or both A-hat comes in, instantly ascends to-) nrc struck offbv the violence of the col vards the ceiling, and the lower rrt i lisioti. in a slate of white heat, and the ecomes cool. But if a portion of the L,.,, t;,., ,,f the iron burn in passing "uel is taken off, then the small quantity through the air: in a vacuum the heat- f active caloric, or heal, acts wtili ' greater force on the unconsunied coal, iririgs out its latent or inactive heat nore rapidly, and thereby producing a quicker decomposition of the gases, by die increasing combustion, the smoke becomes thinner and lighter, and though it carries up certainly more caloric with it proportionally than before, yet the quantity of radieiit heat is greater, and the temperature of the apartment is. i more equalized Why do some chimneys smoke ? Because the wind is loo much let in atthe mouth of the shaft, or the smoke is stifled below; or there is too little room in the vent, particularly where feveral open into the same funnel. The situation of the house may likew ise ef fect them, especially if backed by high er buildings. Why does water thrown on brisk and flaming lire, apparently increase thf combustion 1 " Because the water is converted into steam, which expanding aud mixing wilh the flame, causes it to spread out into a much larger volume than it other - wise would have occupied. Why docs sunshine extinguish a fire Because ihe rays engage the oxygen which had hitherto supported the lire. Why does a fire burn briskly and clearly in cold weather f Because the air being mora dense, affords more nourishment to the fire, wi . :. ....... i". I ,. ,.i !. .,11 ...i ll ' V 11 IS IV Muaum i-' l-l " . ' i . Because the moisture, in being eva porated, carries oil" with it, as latent, and therefore useless, a considerable proportion of w hat the combustion pro duces. It is a very common prejudice, that the wetting of coal, by making it last lunger, effects a great saving; but, in truth, it restrains the combustion, and for a time makes a bad fire; it al so wastes the heat Why do vegetable stalks, &e. burn briskly ? Ah ol..te acquiescence in the de4sin of the liecatise f tlic quantity of carbon which they contain. Why docs flour of sulphur, thrown into a fireplace, extinguish a chimney when on fire ? Because, by its combustion, it affects the decomposition of the atmospheric air, which is, consequently, annihila ted. Why arc strong flames often scon at the chimney top of foundry furnaces ? Because the heat of the furnace is so great, that the smoke burns on reaching the oxygen of the atmosphere. Why is it evident that coal is derived from vegetation ? Because there are few coals but that present more or less of a woody texture: to be traced from the betumenized wood, which still bears, though approa ching in its nature to coal, the trunk, the branches, and even the very leaves of trees, through all the varieties of coal, into the fnost compact slaty kind, of the oldest formation. Why is charcoal sometimes found among coal I Because the slate which covers the coul layers takes lire, in consequence of its containing sulphur, in such mi nute division, as readily to attract oxv- I gen and inllame ; thus converting vege table remains into charcoal. Why do fatal accidents happen from the burning of charcoal in chambers ? Because of the abundance of carbo nic acid gas extricated during the com bustion. Why are the inside of water casks charted or slightly burned ? Because the charcoal thus produced in the casks, keeps the water sweet, and in some measure, preserves the wood from the influence of damp. Why are long, shallow stove grates uneconomical ? Because the body of the coal is not soon heated, and required to be oftcner replenished, to keep up the lire. Why is the extreme heat of stoves for heating rooms, pernicious to health ? Because if the temperature be thus raised much higher than 300 Fahren heit, the-animal and vegetable matter, which is found mechanically mixed at all times with the air, will lie decompo sed, anil certain elastic vapors aud flu ids produced, of a deleterious quality, and peculiar smell.

Draw over the top a sheep skin, and confine it by a string drawn around the upper part of the barrel.

Jf you place a brick or stone in the barrel, just so as j to leive the top of it out of w ater, the first rat that falls in will climb thereon and set up a cry, which will call the wlmle family ol rats to see what the matter is. As each new comer enters on the skin covered top of the barrel, he too is plunged below to keep company with the alarmist. In this way many rats, perhaps all there are in the house, may be taken in a single night. The trap is a simple one, ami costs but little. Those who have tried it say it is effec tual.

Xinc-tenths of the cultivated lands of Great Britain are leased to tenants, who pay from two to five pounds ster ling per acre, aniiii.il rent. Now ad mitting taxes and labor and other ex penses to be no higher here than they arc there, it will at once be seen lha't our common cultivation will no where do much more than pay tiic price of rent; but by superior productiveness, occasioned by superior cultivation, the British farmer is not only enabled to pay rents and taxes; but finding every thing for husbandry, and all articles put upon the. ground; he obtains also, wealth from the pursuit of his calling. Murwen stated the produce of an English farm of Sfll acres, in the year INl l.to be 8,58 equal to 8.!80(10. On this ground were carried, in that year, the almost incredible quantity of 13,7 lf one-horse cart loads of manure, and in the next year lO.VJ.'iO more! Suppose the rent of this farm to be twelve dollars an acre, the expense of manure and its application twelve dol lars more; still there will be left, as profit, ten dollars an acre; leaving a clear gain of about ten thousand dollars to the tenant. A bay-l':irm, nenr London, of lOO acres, was rented for twelve dollars an acre, or ltl'JO dollars a year : the tenant commenced with a meat outlay for ma nure an outlay which would here be considered at least equal to the value of the land before it was manured, a large outlay fur farming implements, and for accommodations and wages for labou rers; and yet lie has constantly been accumulating riches front ibis farm, afier paving all expenses.

Tlic Iron Tralc. Sir John Guest states that all protec ting duties nrc nugatory on iron, ns it can be manufactured cheaper in this country thanj in any other part of the world. He gives the following sketch of the iron trade: "In 17-10 almost the whole of the iron in this country was made from charcoal, and tlic make was 17,3."iO tons. In 1788, in consequence of the introduction of the new process of making iron of pit coal, the quantity increased to 08,300 tons, about which time Mr. Watt brought his improve ments to bear upon the iron trade by the introduction of steam engines for blow ing the furnaces; after which time there was a still more rapid increase. In 1?!H5 the quantity produced was l'-JO,-000 tons. In the next ten years, down to 18(;, the quantity was increased to L'oS.OOO tons. In 1823 the quantity produced w as '152,000 tons. The quan tity in IN -JO was 581,000 tons this w as all pig iron. In 1 828 the quantity was "03.000 tons. From that time to 1N31 it became stationary; it rather dimini.-hed iu 1830, in consequence of the distress which prevailed in the country at that time ; from which time the increase has been still more rapid. In In:).", it was estimated at about a million of tons ; in 1835 it was estima ted at one million two hundred thousand tons, and the estimate made by a very intelligent person who went round the works iu 1830 was one million five hundred and twelve tons, which is ra ther increasing. A very large propor tion of ihe great increase, latterly, has been produced by ihe introduction of hot air in the blast furnace." Report on Import Duties. I'if.lXTRICITV IOII MoTIVB PoWEIt.
