Mastfactouc of Port Wixb.?A London paper give* the following account of the manner in which port wine is man ufactured: When port is required to be manuiac. tured, two separate processes are deliber ately and systematically gone through: first the wine itself is made, and then the bottles are prepared into which the liquor is to be transferred. When th ? mixture iUelf is deficient in thefragrar cy peculiar to the grape, a bouquet i contnbuied by means of*sweet scented herbs, bv orris-root, elder flowers or laurel water. A vinous order is some times imparted by small quantities of th liquid known as the oil of win*;. Th pleasant juice ol the sloe imparts a port like roughness to the compound, and saw dust or oak bark effect the same purpose A fruit}* taste is given by a tin^uie e ^aisins, and ^rich, ruby color has prob ably once flowed in the vessel of the sad dle wood tree. But the bottles have to be crusteo This is done by tincture of catechu an sulphate of lime. The corks are steepe-. in a decoction of Brazil wood, and the ve ry casks are prepared with a layer o cream of tartar, which is formed at the bottom in glittering crystals. Thus a pipe of port which was young in the morning, is made to fall into extreme old age in the course of the aiternoon. Thess. are no exaggerations, and the following has been civen cs the chemical analysis of a bottle of cheap port wine, though for obvious reasons wesuppress the quan tities:?Spirits of wine, cider, sugar, al um, tartaric acid, aad a deception of log wood. In mosl instances, when the wine is no: manufactured in this country, th? consumer is victimized by a three-fold adulteration. The exporter adulterates, the importer adulterates, and finally the retail dealer adulterates. I'RKADrr l Storm at Naples ?Ther: ba.^ Utn much illness during the winter in Naples, and the proportion of death> wao, for a short time, as great as during th: pestilence of the cholera this last yt-r. Every oae has been attacked by influenza, r.nd several of our oldest resi dents have been taken off" by it. When 1 wrote last. I complained of the wea ther as having been verv cold, and hav ing inflicted-serious damage on the orange crops. I am now writing on the day after the severest storm which has been known here for many year-. It came on the evening of the 14th. fiom the southwest, and raged with the in tcruest fury till the morning of the 15th. In some villages near the coast of the -ea, which rose a^ if impelled by somt subterranean commotion, made a clear breach over the houses, sweeping then out completely of their contents, and uking them off to sea. The early crop-^ have been destroyed, and the oliv*. tree.' have suffered much. As yet we have heard but little ol the disastrous effect.* of ihe storm, but we are fearful that it has occasioned a widespread ruin.?Lo? don Morning Kcics. MOVEMENTS OF OCEAN STEAMERS Sa?t?.
