g cloth. Burl′ing-ma-chine. One for removing knots and foreign matters projecting from the surface of woolen cloth before fulling. Burn′er. That part of a lighting apparatus at which combustion takes place. See gas-burner; lamp-burner. Also applied to the corresponding portions of gasheaters and gas-stoves (which see). See also vaporburner; petroleum stove. Bur′nett-izing. A process for preventing decay of wood and fibrous materials or fabrics, patented in England by Burnett, 1837. The wood or fiber is immersed in a solution of chloride of zinc, 1 pound; water, 4 gallons for wood, 5 gallons for fabrics, 2 gallons for felt, contained in a wooden tank. Timber is saturated two days for each inch of thickness, and then set on end to drain for from two to fourteen weeks. Cotton, yarns, cordage, and woolens are immersed for forty-eight hours. Burn′ing. 1. (Metal-working.) Joining metals by melting their adjacent edges, or heating the adjacent edges
thickness will be perfectly dry and seasoned, and fit for use. Large timbers will require a proportionate time, according to their thickness. Some processes of similar import may be shortly stated. In Bethel's process, creosote is employed and forced under heavy pressure into the pores of the wood. (1838.) Robbins expels moisture by heat and then saturates with coal-tar, resin, or bituminous oils, at 325° Fah. (1865). Blythe treats with steam combined with hydrocarbon vapor. Burnett employs chloride of zinc in solution, under pressure. (1838.) Boucherie used pyrolignite of iron. (1840.) Payne, sulphate of iron. (1842.) Margary, acetate or sulphate of copper. (1837.) Van der Weyde, solution of silicate of potash. Heinemann: boil wood in alkaline solution, and treat, under pressure and heat, with resin, carbolic acid, and tar. Nicholson, tar and petroleum. Behr, solution of borax. Earl, protosulphate of iron. Payen, superficial carbonization.
over the vertical and transverse corner strips. The lower corner guards have projections for attachment and protection of the casters. The hinges are bent to lap around the ends of the trunk. A spring-catch holds the lid-case into the lid. Burnett's trunk In Fig. 6690, the front portion of the top part of the trunk is hinged to the back part at the lid, and may be turned up thereon so as to expose the falling doors of the hinged and fixed portions of the upper part. Trunk-a-larm′. The rivets are clinched against the sheet-iron plate. Pins working through the frame enter corresponding holes in the block, to hold it at any desired point; the pins are held in operative position by springs, and are withdrawn by a treadle. Burnett's Trunkmaker's anvil. Trunk-roller. Trunk-nail. A nail with a head shaped like a segment of a sphere, so as to make a rounded boss when driven. Used for ornamenting coffins and trunks. See nail. Trunk-roll′er. A roller journale
Phosphate of baryta. Borax. In 1832, Kyan, in England, patented a method of preserving timber by immersing it in a solution of bichloride of mercury (corrosive sublimate): the proportions are varied somewhat, generally about 2 parts of sublimate to 100 of water are employed. Large timbers are placed in air-tight tanks, the air is exhausted, and the solution forced in under pressure. Margary's process, 1837, consisted in immersing the wood in acetate or sulphate of copper. Sir William Burnett, 1838, patented a process for saturating wood with a solution containing 1 1/2 parts of chloride of zinc (white vitriol) to 100 parts water, forced into the pores of the wood, from which the air was exhausted, under a pressure of 125 to 150 pounds per square inch. Bethel's patent (English, 1838) The wood is impregnated with oil of tar and other bituminous matters, containing creosote, and also with pyrolignite of iron, which holds more creosote in solution than any other watery men

Burnett was fined one dollar for violating the ordinance based for the government of the market; Philip Shaffer, charged with assaulting Jacob Rich, was discharged on giving security for its good behavior. A fine imposed on him for calling Rich an improper name in Court, was remitted by the Mayor. The Mayor ordered Wm. Bender's dog to be killed, the brute having been complained of for the exhibition of vicious qualities.
Saturday, a negro named Cyrus Winston, owned by Jno. Thacker, was carried before the Mayor, charged with cutting Wm. Burnett's hand in a very savage manner. It appeared that the fellow had been detected in stealing a piece of beef from John Jaiser, a butcher in the Second Market, and the parties seizing him left him in the hands of Burnett, while they proceeded to return the stolen property. While thus situated he contrived to open a knife and cut Burnett's hand in a half dozen places, While thus situated he contrived to open a knife and cut Burnett's hand in a half dozen places, so as to endanger its safety. Burnett was not present at the examination on Saturday, and the negro was sent to jail by the Mayor until this morning.

Macklin, arrested for threats to set fire to Franklin Hall, was discharged, proving to have been drunk at the time, and generally a trifling fellow.

Burnett's hand, in the Second Market, while the latter had him in custody for stealing a piece of meat from John Jaiser. He was ordered 25 lashes for the latter offence.

For the State Senate from Jefferson and Berkeley there is a close vote between E. L. Moore and A. C. Hammond. For the House of Delegates from Jefferson county most of the votes cast were for J. Y. Beall and Wm. Burnett, and from Berkeley county for Israel Robinson and Ro. W. Hunter.
