Chemist, Exeter.-This process perfectly purilies Gas, without producing any foul liquor, and does not require any assistance on the.parts of the workmen," except when a renewal- is necessary, which may be effected in a few minijte.i, without allowing any impure Gas to find its way to the Gazonieters, and if from ne|;Iect the renewal should be delayed for some hours, no injury will arise frohi it. It relieves the apparatus, from all pressure except that of the Gazometers, which enables the workmen to secure with ease the mouths of the Uetorts: it prevents a great waste of Gas where tliese are defective, and always at the time of drawing thrtn. It preserves the brilliancy of the Gas unimpaired, which in the ordinary process of washing through lime water, is found on comparison to be lessened very considerably, effecting thereby a savipg in the quantity necessary for each burner. I n point of economy thisjirocesa canno( be surpassed, nor is the residura of such a nature as to be a source of ineoovenicnc'e : it may remain on the premises or be removed witbuutproducingacy ojfensive smell, and ia many situations will be found a good manure. The various qualities above enumerated, make this Patent peculiarly valuable to those who are about to erect Gas Works^ as from rendering a drains unnecessary, a proper situation can be so tRuch more .easUy.selected, and it; will be found useful to estal)lUhments already formed, by preventing those nuisances pf which so much cohiplStnt has been made.
