Shields' division, camp near Edinburgh, April 10, 1862. To His Excellency the Hon. O. P. Morton, Indianapolis, Indiana: sir: I have the honor to make the following report of the part taken by the Indiana troops under my command in
method of amalgamating ores or other materials by addition thereto of sodium or other highly electro-positive metal, as above set forth. The valuable work of Phillips on mining gives the compendium following : A quantity of sodium amalgam dissolved in a hundred times or more its weight of quicksilver is said to communicate to if there has been any leakage from the retort. A sheet-iron hood is placed over the furnacedoor to conduct any escaping vapors into the flues. According to Phillips, the cost of working from $45 to $50 ores by the pan process is, in those portions of the State of Nevada in which water-power can be obtained, nearly as followsbove and at the bottom, respectively, discharge the water and the amalgam pulp. Bertola's mill, 1857. The arrastra, as usually constructed, and described by Phillips, consists of a circular pavement of stone, about twelve feet in diameter, on which the quartz is ground by means of two or more large stones or mullers dragged c
is itself cleaned by the brush I, which delivers the bronze into the collecting-box G. The sheet then passes between the wheel A and apron g, and receives a final brushing at the point of delivery. Brooch. 1. An ornamental clasp with a pin for fastening the dress. The term corresponds to ouch (which see), under which name the ornamental clasp appears in the King James version of the Bible, Exodus XXVIII. 11, XXXIX. 18, and in other places. See Minshieu's Ductor in Linguas, 1617; Phillips's World of words, 1658. See also the same passages in the Bishop's and Coverdale's versions. In the Wickliffe version it is rendered hookes. The ouch or brooch was a clasp or button, and, in course of time, came to be fastened with a pin called a broach (Fr. broche), and hence the name brooch, of this form of ornamental clasp, has been attributed to the name of the pin (broach) by which it is fastened. This brooch or pin, probably as large as the corking-pin of Swift's time, of old
wing the signal-box in main circuit to send in the alarm. On the same local circuit are also arranged burglar-detectors, so that a door or window being opened closes the local circuit with the same result. Fire-an-ni′hi-lator. Invented by Phillips in 1849. A vessel is charged with a mixture of dried ferro-cyanide of potassium, sugar, and chlorate of potassa. It is set in action by a blow on a glass bottle which contains sulphuric acid, which flows over the charge and liberates gas whichare perhaps sixty patents for various forms of the fire-annihilator. The devices particularly refer to the modes of construction, the acid and alkali chamber, the modes of precipitating the former upon the latter and availing the product. The Phillips fire-annihilator, so called, patented in 1849 and shown at A, has a compound of sugar and chlorate of potash so placed as to receive the contents of a bottle of sulphuric acid which is broken by striking a plug on the top of the can when a fire
or raw magistral), which is found in many parts of Mexico. These ores, according to Napier, contain from 7.47 to 13.75 per cent of copper. It is reduced to powder by dry stamping and grinding. It is used especially in the patio process of amalgamation. Some authorities state that the copper pyrites are roasted and ground, but this would seem to detract from their activity, which is due to the action of their sulphuric acid upon the salt, liberating muriatic acid. So say Sonneschmid and Phillips. See amalgamator, p. 76. 2. (Fortification.) The line where the scarp, if prolonged, would intersect the top of the coping or cordon. — Mahan. The guiding line which defines the first figure of the works of a fortification. Mag-ne′si — an Lime′stone. A mineral which crystallizes in the rhombohedral system. Mag-ne′si-um. Equivalent, 12; symbol, Mg.; specific gravity, 1.743. A malleable metal the color of silver. As a silicate or carbonate, it enters into the comp
as, but in practice rarely more than half that amount is obtained. Fig. 3458 illustrates an apparatus for obtaining oxygen gas from permanganates by means of steam. A is the boiler from which a current of steam is forced by the pipe D into the retorts F, extracting a portion of the oxygen therein contained. The steam current then passes, carrying the oxygen with it into the condenser H, where the steam is condensed, the oxygen being conveyed through the pipe I into the reservoir J. Phillips's oxygen-gas apparatus. To assist the process, a partial vacuum is formed in the retorts by a pipe E on the Giffard injector principle. When all the oxygen capable of being extracted is liberated, the steam is shut off and a fresh portion of air admitted through an appropriate pipe; part of its oxygen combines with the exhausted manganate, forming a permanganate which is treated as before. Archereau's apparatus comprises a cupola of fire clay, inclosed in a leaden shell within whic
ly interfere with this; at Rome, for instance, there are but 64 days of rain in the year, and at Padua 120. London has 220 dry days in the year, and Dublin but 150. The number of days of heavy rain is nearly the same at both places, — from 16 to 32 annually. Dr. Heberden found that on top of Westminster Abbey, from July, 1766, to July, 1767, but 12.099 inches of rain fell; on top of a lower building near by 18.139 inches; and at the ground, 22.608 inches. At York, as determined by Phillips in 1834-35, the amount at an elevation of 213 feet was 14.963 inches; 44 feet, 19.852 inches; at the ground, 25.706 inches. At the Paris Observatory the relative amounts falling three meters from the surface of the earth, and a station twenty-seven meters above this, were as 1.116 to 1. The effect produced on the annual rainfall of a country by clearing it of its forests is a subject which of late years has received, as it deserves, a great share of attention. Sir John Herschel, Lyel
ship on the outside, under the gunwale. Sheers. 1. (Nautical.) Originally spelt shears, from the resemblance, in form, to cutting shears. Bailey, 1725; Phillips' World of words, 1658. Modern maritime custom has otherwise determined it. An apparatus consisting of two masts, or legs, secured together at the top, and proots, they appearing to have no broad sole, but to resemble heavy moccasins. Isambard M. Brunel invented, in 1810, a machine for making seamless shoes. Sir Richard Phillips states as follows, in his Morning walk from London to Kew :— I was shown his manufactory of shoes, which is full of ingenuity, and, in regard to subdivipiece slipping in a packed port-hole. The port was closed by a shutter, which was raised by a lanyard, and dropped of its own accord when the gun recoiled. Mr. Phillips of Indiana in 1855, and Woodbury of Boston in 1861-1864, worked at the problem. Woodbury's device is shown at Fig. 6032. An American submarine gun was shown a
mometer, to indicate temperatures higher than the boiling-point of mercury under one atmosphere (676° Fah.), is called a pyrometer (which see). Spirit-thermometer; one in which spirit is employed instead of mercury. Statical thermometer; a kind of air-thermometer arranged to open and close a window or ventilator by the expansion and contraction of its contained air. See thermostat. For Rutherford's instrument, see thermetograph. For Beck's instrument, see Thermograph. In Phillips's maximum thermometer, about 1/2 inch of mercury at the end of the column is separated from the rest by a minute particle of air. This index is pushed along the tube as the mercury expands, and remains in the same position, when the mercury contracts, thus showing the greatest degree of heat to which the instrument has been exposed. The separated portion is returned to its place by a jerking motion imparted to the thermometer. The instrument, for use, is laid or suspended in a horizontal
thus separated in about 10 minutes, so even and so uniform that it appeared more like a perfect work of nature than one of human art. The force of those saws may be conceived when it is known that the large ones revolve 65 times in a minute; hence 18 × 3.14 = 56.5 × 65 gives 3,672 feet, or two thirds of a mile in a minute; whereas if a pit-saw worked by two men gives 30 strokes of 3 feet in 1 minute, it is but 90 feet, or only the 1/40 part of the steady force of Mr. Brunel's saws. — Sir Richard Phillips's Morning walk from London to Kew. Veneer-saw. Previous to Brunel's invention, veneers were cut by sawyers, one of whom stood in a pit. The saw used was similar to the ordinary pit framesaw, but had a thinner blade. Six veneers to the inch was the customary average. Hand veneer-saws, very similar to the hand frame-saw, and generally worked by two individuals, were used by cabinet-makers, who would cut 7 or 8 strips to the inch, the slab being held upright in the chops of the b
