Within the last thirty days a very large quantity of rain has fallen; the weather has been changeable and cold, with gales of wind, and some lightning.

The effect of iliis on the human trame las manifested itself. Rheumatism has affected many individuals in its seyerent forms; but the chronic state has been the most frequent. Pulmonary complaints have increased. Scarlet fever and hooping cough are spreading. One of the cases of scarlatina, an infant, that was insensible and could not swallow at the time of my visit, died very shortly afterwards. The father of the child, and its brother, in about a week became affected with the complaint. The former did not suffer much; but in the son, the disorder, almost from the first, assined a malignaut character. Bark, the mineral acids, and laudanam, as the symptores demanded, had a marked good effect; for, in the eonimencement of the complaint, an opposite plan was pursted, and the beneficial consequence of changing the treat. ment was presently obvious. This was also the case in an adult affected with intlam. matory sore-throat; as it changed in character for the worse, a more stimulating cordial plan, with a mineral acid, succeeded. In these instances I place more reliance upon the acid than the bark.

The cases of phrenitis hardly come under that head, but Sauvages has enumerated a species of phreuitis . sine pyreria cum inflammatione cerebri et meningum. Tlie sabjects were twins, boys, aged five years; they were affected with debility and constant delirium, without any fever or other morbid appearance. Their mother had just died of a lingering complaint, towards the conclusion of which she had been delirions : the family supposed the childreu were affected with a similar complaint. They both tecovered.

In all these cases, and in some others in the present list, which I cannot pow enlarge upon, it appeared to me that the weather had cousiderable influence. Damp coulbined with cold, has a decidedly depressing effect upon the vital power. In a state of high health, this canse of disease is resisted; the animal heat is generated as rapidly as the occasion demands; the arterial circulation is not impeded, and cousequently the perspiration is not checked. Where, again, the action of the heart and arteries is in excess, whether from accession of fever, or the temporary excitement of stimulation, the application of cold and wet is beneficial, by abstracting the undue augmentation of heat, and reducing the circulation to its natural standard. Applied in a state of body below the healthy condition, these agents produce pulmonic disease, rheumatism, sore-throat, &c. and, by depressing the vital power, dispose some diseases to assume a maliguant character.

It is generally supposed that heat has this effect, and that fevers, for instance, lave a worse type in hot weather thau iu cuid. This may be true, without involving a paradox. Whatever greatly excites the nervons and sanguineous systems, ultimately exhausts and debilitatez: this is the case with heat; but its consequences may be prevented by cold and moisture. The practical application of this principle is finely demonstrated in the present simple and iinproved mode of treating fevers.

Although cold and damp, combined together, produce a depressing effect upon the system; cold alone, at least as it appears in our climate, is invigorating, and even stimulating. Thus, in frosty weather, we see the whole frame robust, the heart and arteries acting with vigour, and all the functions proceeding well, yielding a pieasant and grateful feeling, and we are conscious of a picasurable state of existence. The frost breaks np, and the thaw is followed with an epidemic catarrhal fever, Craten-street, Oct. 20, 1819,

REPORT OF THE PROGRESS OF CHEMISTRY. MUR. BRANDE, the ingenions successor of Sir Humphrey Davy in the chemical

1. chair at the Royal Institution, has read before the Royal Society a second paper on the state in which alcohol, or pure ardent spirit, exists in termented liquors. It has been usually supposed that alcohol was a product of the process of distillation, and ihe experiments of Mr. B. have been instituted with a view to ascertain the correctness or incorrectness of this opinion. He had previously concluded that any new arrangement of the ultimate elements of wine, which could occasion the forniation of alcohol, would constantly be attended with other marks of decomposition, and that carbon would be deposited, or carbonic acid evolved; neither of which circumstances does actually take place. He has succeeded in shewing that alcohol may be separated from wine without the intervention of heat, and that the same proportion may he thus procured as that yielded by distillation. His plan is as follows. He first separates the colouring matter and the acid of the wine, by means of a concentrated solution of subacetate of lead, and then, by sub-carbonate of potash, he finally disengages from it the alcoliol. He answers the assertion, that a mixture of alcohol and water, in the same proportion in which it exists in wine, is much more intoxicating than the same quantity of wine itself, by proving that the union is incomplete : and he states also, that the acid and extractive matter, blunt very much the seal strength of the wine. Mr. B. therefore, again concludes, that the whole quantity of alcohol which is found after distillation, had actually pre-existed in the fermented liquor operated on

Mr. Gay-Lussac has now demonstrated that there are only three different oxides of iron which are perfectly distinct from each other; and that the various coloring which some of them assunie arise from their different states of aggregation. The first oxide, which is white, and which is obtained whenever iron decomposes water by means of an acid, the acid not furnishing the oxygen by being itself also decomposed, consists of 100 parts of ixon, and 28 of oxygen. The second oxide, which is produced by burning iron in oxygen, or in atmospheric air, at a very elevated temperature, or where water is decomposed by iron without the auxiliary presence of an acid, contains 38 per cent. of oxygen. This second oxide, when in a mass, is of a blackish grey colour, and when precipitated, is of a deep browl, but when very minntely divided, it is green. It is also very magnetic. The third, the red oxide, is co!!posed of 100 parts of iron and 42 parts of oxygen. In a natural state the white oxide does not exist, except in combination with carbonic acid.

The celebrated hypothesis of Sir Humphry Davy, which assures that muriatic acid mit is a compound of chlorine and hydrogen, and not a compound, as has hitherto been

sopposed, of oxygen and some unknown base, is still unsanctioned by the opinions of many of our first chemists. Among these, Professor Berzelius, of Stockhoint, says, although it is difficult, experimentally, to demonstrate the incorrectness of Sir Hunphry's hypothesis, that, according to the very luminous doctrine of definite proportions, which was first given to the chemical world some years ago, by the celebrated Mr. Dalton, of Manchester, and of the truth of which Sir Humphry himself, with psery
