M R. ALEXANDER GARDEN, of Old Compton Street, Soho, has published the H following process for obtaining Iode: 1. To a concentrated watery solution of kelp (or the waste ley of the soap-maker { where keip has been employed) from which the greater part of the crystallizable salts have been separated by the usual processes of evaporation and crystallization, he adds red oxide of lead in the proportion of one ounce to about a pint of the former; boils the mixture over a slow fire to dryness, and increases the heat towards the end of the solution so as to carbonize any animal or vegetable matter which the substance may contain. This last may most conveniently be performed in an iron ladle. 2. He digests the dried mass in a quantity of cold water sufficient to extract the great est portion of the soluble matter, and fliters and evaporates the clear liquid to the consistence of a syrup. 3. He introduces the liquid obtained in the last process, together with the saline matter which may have separated during the evaporation, into a glass mattrass, and pours . thereon about twice its bulk of alcohol; digests with a gentle heat for a few minutes, and then suffers the vessel with its contents to grow cold. 4. He decants the clear a coholic solution into a tubulated retort, adapts a receiver, and by means of a gentle and gradnally applied heat distils off the alcohol. The saline matter which remains in the retort is to be washed out and evaporated to dryness in a . capsule of Wedgwood's ware. . . 5. He introduces the dry salt thus obtained into a mattrass with a short neck, to which, a glass tube, about six or eight inches long, and sufficiently large to fit over the external : . diameter of the neck, has been luted, and pours over the salt, by means of a long-necked' funnel, twice its weight of strong sulphuric acid. He heats the mixture gradually by a spirit or Argand's lamp, and the iode will immediately begin to rise in the form of a dense and beautiful violet-colored gas, which will be condensed in the upper part of the vessel in black shining crystals; when the gas ceases to be disengaged the mattrass should be allowed to cool: the iode may then be washed out with water, dried on white filtering " paper at a temperature not exceeding 100° of Fahrenheit, and inclosed in a bottle accurately fitted with a glass stopper. - - . . . . Mr. ACCUM has also published another process of obtaining Iode. He says it is to be found in abundance in the waste or spent see of those soap manufacturers who employ kelp in the preparation of soap. To obtain the iode from the waste, lee, let it be boiled. for a few minutes with quicklime; strain the fluid and mingle it with sulphuric acid in excess. This being done, evaporate the liquor to a syrupy consistence, and then distil,' or heat it, in a flask or retort with red oxyd of lead and sulphuric acid. The iode will,


thus be obtained in abundance; and this in fact constitutes the cheapest process of obtaining it. If the product to be distilled with manganese has not been freed sufficiently from the muriates in which the soap lee abounds, there then is a copious production of chlorine; together with a yellow fluid, and then the quantity of iode becomes considerably diminish. ed. This loss may be guarded against, by adding filings of zinc to the mixture, previously to submitting it to distillation. In fact, the addition of zinc filings effects the expulsion of an additional portion of iode from the mass, after the oxide of lead or manganese has ceased to act. Professor JAMEson, of Edinburgh, has published the following short enumeration of the most important of his mineralogical conclusions: 1. That primitive rocks contain no mechanical deposites, the conglomerated rocks in gneiss and porphyry being entirely of a chemical nature. `... 2. That greywacke is always a pure chemical deposite, and contains no mechanical intermixture. 3. That felspar occurs more abundantly in nature than is generally supposed, this mineral being one of the principal ...,' parts of granite, gneiss, clay slate, porphyry, Siemite, serpentine, flinty state, hornstone, greywacke, transition slute, striped Jasper, oldest conglomerates, besides forming in some degree the basis of most of the primitive, transition, and floetz trap rocks. 4. That the vast beds of conglomerate which rest upon, and sometimes probably altermate with, transition rocks, are also chemical deposites, 5. That sandstone in many instances appears to be a'chemical deposite. 6. That many of the fragments and fragmented appearances which occur in porphyry, limestone, and trap rocks, are of a chemical nature, and of cotemporaneous formation with the rocks in which they are contained. : 7. That true primitive veins, those confined to primitive rocks, whatever may be their nature or magnitude, are often of cotemporaneous formation with the rocks they traverse. 8. That many of the veins in transition and floetz countries, even those extending for many hundred yards, and of great width, are of cotemporaneous formation with the rocks in which they are contained. 9. That strata of crystallized rocks may appear to run beneath an older rock when they really rest upon it, and have been formed after it. 10, That the various wavings in the strata of gneiss, mica slate, clay slate, greywacke, transition slate, and sandstone, are the effects of crystallization. 11. That the general, physical, and geographical distribution of petrifactions in the crust of the earth does not correspond with that of the present existing races of animals and plants.

The plant figured by Jacquin under the same name, Mr. Ker informs us, is totally different; though he supposes the alteration made in its specific character, in the new edition of the Hortus Kewensis, WaS probably owing to Jacquin's figure. HAEMANTHUs quadricalvis. - ALLIUM striatum. In a note added to this article Mr. Ker seems to have established

that Allium gracile and inodorum, Bot. Mag. (fragrams of Ventenat.) are the same plant; when cultivated in the stove it is gracile, and when in the open ground the same plant becomes the inodorum. No. 313 contains, - - WyMPHAEA pygmaea; first published in the Paradisus Loui.

The mean height of the barome'er for the month is equal to 99.463, and that of the thermonieter is equal to 50°. Notwithstanding the unfavorable appearance of the spring when our last report was drawn up, we may now add that the country never put on a more fiattering aspect than at the present moment, and there is every prospect of its being a good fruit year. The mildness of the weather, and the favorable rains have done much to revive the hopes of those who depend on the fruits of the earth, either for subsistence, or the gratification of their pleasures. The wind has been variable, but chiefly from the easterly points.

their appearance, promise a great crop; and, upon lands and cold clays, where they have uffered in plant, it does not thence follow that they may be less productive, there being, in all probability, full as many plants left, as such land is calculated to secd to a profitable maturity. The spring crops above ground, are yet too backward to afford any solid rule of judgment, but winter tares and rape are probably among the most indifferent crops of the season. The present stormy weather is extremely favorable to the grass Crops. The last season was one of the most universal plenty, and the stock of bread corm on hand is great indeed.

Sacred Harmony, a Selection of Hymns; set to Music, with a Thorough-bass for the Organ, by John Burkitt. 12s. V E find in this collection of sacred - ---- music near fifty pieces; some of which are for a single voice, some for two voices, and others for three. We have always professed ourselves friends of compositions of this kind, because they extend the activity of a science that in our opinion is, when applied to proper subjects and purposes, as useful as pleasing. A Sunday evening caisnot, perhaps, be better employed than in music of the description of that before us; a more rational relaxation of the mind, after the devotion proper to the day, cannot be conceived than that of a vocal concert on subjects connected with our future and eternal welfare. On this ground, as well as for their general merit, which certainly entitles them to our “honourable report,” we highly approve of Mr. Burkitt's publication; the subjects are well chosen, the melodies applied to them are appropriate, and the basses and harmobizations are ably constructed and arranged. Were we to point out all the superior hymns of this collection, we certainly should not omit “Spring,” “Summer,” “Autumn,” “Winter,” “Resurrection,” “Bethel,” “Temple,” “Triumph,” “Devotion,” and “Commencement.” Elegiac Ode for Five Voices. The JP'ords written by the Rev. Thomas Beaumont, and the Jiusic composed by William Horsley, Mus. Bac. Oxon. and by them inscribed to the Memory of their Friend, the late S. Harrison. 3s. This composition consists of two movements: the first, introductory, and in C Minor; the second, in C Major. Mr. Horsley, just to the professional merits of his late friend, has evidently bestowed considerable care on the tribute due to his incmory. It is worthy of the object,

and worthy of himself. The parts, separately considered, are flowing and melodious, the points well sustained, and the general construction of that masterly cast to well support the reputation of Mr. II. as a sound and ingenious musician.

New Musical Game, to facilitute the Knowledge of the Time Table; by T. Howell, of Bristol. 4s. We consider this contrivance for the purpose of teaching the Time Table, as very ingenious. The author effects his purpose by means of cards; some of which contain certain questions which are answered by the contents of other cards. The rules of this game are few and simple. The cards bearing the questions being separated from those representing the answers, each player draws a card from the former, and that of the longest duration in Time, Notes, or Rests, entitles the drawer to deal the answers to the rest of the party. By this method of proceeding, together with the further procedure which is explained in the accompanying;directions, the pupil acquires in the way of amusement what usually deinands considerable study and patience. We ought to notice, that the object of a speedy and easy elucidation of the comparative value of the notes and rests is still further promoted by the annex: tion of the TIME TABLE, SECTIONs of the TIME TABLE, and the Manner, or MCthod, of showing the Measure, by characters and numerical figures, A favourite Duo, composed by Kozeluch; arranged for the Pianoforte, Harp, and Flute, and inscribed to Miss Cheese, of Dublin, by J.
