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.
