Defcription of Srit. Sal Gem prouV fo k the fame mith common Salt. Salt ferments with oil of Vi� triol. Some C6njeftnres about the Saltnefs of the Sea. The Euxirte Sea runs always outward, and is e(feem"d falter than am exchequer Funds. Courfe of Exchange. An Abftratt from the Bills of Mortality and Gazettes. Price of^Cbm' &rc. in Counties.

La my third Volume I have told you from Dr.Wil-Ik zhxSalt is known by d'versNamcs: For befides Fluid, Fixed, Volatile, 'tis term'd Marine^ Aluminow, Hi-trow, Vitriolic^, Armmiacf^, or of fome other kind, and perhaps there are as many different Sorts of Salt, as Salt will Chriflallite into different Forms. ' Dr. Wilkins reckons the imported Salt I am treating of, to be a Factitious Subftance, having fome Analogy to the Mineral and dijfolvable by Water, not infiamable, being a more fimple Kind from Sea Water, and the mod necefiary Condiment for Meat. Moft Authors make a difference between Common Salt made from Brine, the Salt from the Sea, and Sal Gem, or Roct>-Salt } but Mr, Edmund Halley thinks them all oney and ije proves it thus. He made beforje the Royal Society a Brine with Common Salt, and fully fatiated it fo that a good Quantity fank to the Bottom in Form of white. Salt; then he hung in this -Brine for many Hours a Fieee of Sal Gem, or Fioc^Salt, but there would not one Grain of ic diflolve; but when other Sorts of Salt were put to it they diflolv'd pi cfently: From whence he concludes that the Sal Gem and Common Salt were of, the fame Species of Matter. Dr. Nehemiah Grew in his Anatomy of Plants, P.246, fays, Common Sal* ftirs neither with Spirit of Salt, nor wich Spirit of Nitre, nor with Aqua Fortis', but with Oil of Vitriol it makes a great Effervefcence, with Noife and Sceams. The (ame Dr. in P. 234, thinks Sea-.Salt nothing elfe but that of Animals and Vegetables carried thither and- freed i from their other Parts, which he endeavours to prove by an Experiment there, and P. 263,' and 266. andhislait Cutt has the Figures of various Salts j the Sincerity of which I doubt nor; yer, under Favour, confidering Mr. lialley\ Experiment above, and thst the Major Part of Sea-Salt \% Acid, and the Major Part of Animal and Vegetable Salts are Alkaloui, I fee no Reafon why we may not think the Salt-nejs. 0(t the Seats proceed alfo in a great Meafure from the tv-aftiing down of the Foffik or RocJ^Salts, either from thence or alter they've been brought into life by Mankind 5 but this I give only as my Conjecture 5 but find Dr.Ploriti his Hiftory of Staffordfnire,?. 87, to be of the fame Mind j and heis confirnfd by the Authority of Pliny mddu ffa-mtl, P, 88. I am infornTd that the Euxine or Blacky Sea runs always out by Conjtantinople, with a water efleem*d falter^ than that of the other Parts of the Sea and that Sea receiving many and great freflfc Rivers, oughrfob^dthited'aTid'grovv tVtfhy KnlefsthcSyi/fw/j were perpetually fappiyM by the Diifoto-tion of iXds. of Rocl^Salt in theSidcsand Bottom thereof* fuch as are found in poland%Tranfilvania and other Countries bordering, thereon.
