Chloroform in Hasgijigs.?Chloroform or is used to relieve pain in almost every operation where it can he of service, not alone in surgery, dentistry, but even in burglary, where the application of a sponge to the nose spares the victim the unavailing anguish of witnessing the loss of his property. But one of the most sensible applications of anesthetic agents, and one which would save the commu nity from such terrible exhibitions of the fear of death as characterized the execution of Donnelly, is here suggested in the Mu?ical World, a paper edited by R. S. Willis: " All the music we can hear will not banish from our minds the horrible consciousncss that the hangman's work is busily going on just now?it will not stifle in our ear the death rattle of strangled men who are perishing on the scaffold. The day appointed for the exe cution of a human being is always a bitter one to us?chiefly, perhaps, because the execution seems so very cold-blooded. Of course, execu tions must be. We cannot all be garroted and shot and mangled in tho public streets. But our mind, while admitting the necessity of 4 blood for blood.' and deeming it fortunate, withal, for the public weal, that the Governor s pardoning power is not invested in ourselves, cherishes a kind of 4 fixed idea' as to a possilde mitigation of physical suffering, which shall be quite compatible with the strictest exactions of justice. '? What the community requires is the life of the culprit?is it not ? It does not demand a certain amount of accompanying agony and torment. We are not Spanish inquisitors, nor sepoys. Wo wish simply to put a poor wretch aside ; in order that for this world, and to the view, and to the detriment of his fellow-crea tures, be may be?no more. '' l><tl ifcts mrrnjirfhf * Wby couple with the taking of life an nmountof tor ment in the life-taking not necessarily involved in the sentence nor required tor the ends of justice ' Modern science has discovered a blessed opiate for physical suffering?even for that prolonged strangling when the knot un fortunately slips around to the baok of the ueck, or the cord catches the wretch '.ib-?ve in stead of below the Adams apple ' '? F??r all such contingencies, as for any con tingency, chloroform and ether are at band. Let the 'black cap' be an ether cap. Torment not the poor wretch even with ? sight of his scaffold. Let him, in the decent privacy of his cell, murmur his last prayer and bid a final adieu to the light of this world--let hiiu there receive the consolations of absolution, or hear the last word of a prayed-for forgiveness. Then, on his couch let this imago of nis Maker find shelter from Impending suffering in the fore shadowed darkness of death, and let his first consciousness, after the black cap is drawn over him, be in that dread Hereafter, into which he baa been painlessly ushered. 44 But if not in his cell, and if dying speeches always mint be made, and the bitter oold of winter, which vividly anticipates to the wretch his deathchill. must often be endured?at least tvben 11 time is up" let a chair support him. while the black '?ap brings to him that blessed oblivion, which will last him through the dark passage. '?No longer, then, let us, Shylock-like, prac tically insist u|>on the blood and the proud of flesh, both?let us l?e content with the for feited life, and mercifully remit the agony."' Bl rning Fli mis.?The Scientific American, an excellent authority upon all scientific and mechanical subjects, recently coutains the fol lowing article on burning fluids: Not many years ago, the fluids employed in our country for household light were animal oils, obtained by perilous adventure on the atormy sea with monsters of the deep. At present, whale oils are in comparatively limited use for illumination, and are becoming morn limited every year. Sperm oil has no superior among among all the burning fluids, but it has become so dear that cheapei substitutes have been sought and obtained. The moat common of these is a compound of alcohol and turpen tine, commonly known by the name of burning fluid. which is very cheap and cleanly, possess ing none of that greasy property which belongs to oils. This fluid was brought into public use in 1H30, when a patent (now expired) waa ob tained for it by Isaiah Jennings of New York city. It is composed of about nine parts of highly rectified alcohold and one of cauiphene, and is capable of burning in common lamps ; were it not so volatile, no burning fluid could be more desirable. From its very nature, how ever, it must be used with great caution and care, because it is so liable to evaporate and become explosive by mixing with the atmos phere. A safer aubstance is desirable. From some kinds of bituminous coal, a sub spirituous oil is now manufactured, which is fast coming into popular favor, owing to the improvements whicn have recently been made in the means of purifying, and in the lampa ('?signed for burning it. It is but a few years since it was first discovered that oil could be distilled at a low tem|>erature from rich cannel coal, and now this coal is almost exclusively employed for lubrication in Great Britain, while it is extensively used both for lubrication and illumination among our i>eople. Vast beds of the rich coal from which this oil can be ob tained. exist in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Ken tucky affording sources of supply for thousands of years to come. Rectified turpentine, under the name of earn fihrtu, which is very cheap, has been tried for illumination, and judgment passed against it. It requires, like coal on, an argand burner, and even with the greatest care, it is liable to smoke and fill up the meshes of the lamp wick with resinous matter. Kosin oil, although very cheap, labors under the same disadvantages. The two vegetable oils oapable of burning in lamp* are made from the olive and rape seed. This oil is capable of rivaling sperm for giving a brilliant light. Patents have been taken out for purifying linseed, cot ton seed, and sunflower seed oils, to adapt them for artificial light, but hitherto none of tbeui hav? come into general user the processes pursued to purify thwin have either beeu inefficient or too expensive.
