nitre 102 75.00 per cent. 1 do. sulphur 16 11.77 3 do. charcoal 18 13.23 136 100.00 The (acid of the) nitre contains five primes of oxygen, ofwhich three, combining with the three of charcoal, willfurnish three of carbonic acid gas, while the remaining twowill convert the one prime of sulphur into sulphureousacid gas. The single prime of nitrogen is, in this view,disengaged alone. The gaseous volume, on this supposition, evolved from136 grains of Gunpowder, equivalent in bulk to 75 grainsof water, or three-tenths of a cubic inch, will be, at theatmospheric temperature as follows: Grains. Cubic inches. Carbonic oxide, - 42 - - 141.6 Sulphurous acid - 32 - - 47.2 Nitrogen - - - 14 - - 47.4 Being an expansion of one volume into 787.3. But as thetemperature of the gases at the instant of their combustiveformation must be incanescent, this volume may be safelyestimated at three times the above amount, or considerablyupwards of two thousand times the bulk of the explosivesolid.—Phil.

There are few parts of the American continent inwhich the Raccoon has not, at some period, been foundnative, from the borders of Nootka Sound, to the forestsof Mexico, and still more southern regions. Yet theCount de Buffon asserts, that this animal was originallyfrom South America, and is most numerous in hot climates,without giving any fact on which his opinion is founded,or supporting his declaration b)^ the observations of othernaturalists. Sonnini properly observes, that neither Fre-zier, UUoa, nor Molina, who have given descriptions ofthe animals of Peru, Brazil, and Chili, make any mentionof the Raccoon; and, i
