White gunpowder. --A letter from London says:"I have heard in the city of a curious invention, which concerns alike sportsmen, riflemen, and the scientific. It is the manufacture of 'white' gunpowder. It is made no mystery of, being composed of yellow potass, chloride of potassa, loaf sugar, crystallized sugar and brimstone. It possesses superior qualities over the black powder, being quicker and more powerful in its action, and not fouling the gun. For the delicate in the olfactory nerves, it may be added that it is without unpleasant smell. It has just been patented."
