Manufacture of Chemicals.

--Prof. Darby, of South Carolina, writes to some gentlemen in correspondence with him as follows:

‘ "I have completed my experiments, and have been perfectly successful, and last week made pure sulphuric acid from iron pyrites, and there is no difficulty in making nitric acid, muriatic acid, bleaching powders for paper makers, chloroform, sal soda, &c.

"The Professor deserves the thanks of the community in general for the important results of his investigations."
