DAILY MORNING POST
10 PURICY TIIE AIR OF STABLES,
BY HENRY ReEcE.
Having been invited by Mr Evans, of
Dean House, to make some experiments
on his elegantly conducted farm and eta.
bles, I trust the results of those upon tills
absorption of ammonia may prove of suffer
cient interests to entitle them to pnblittes
Lion. As gympsum (crystalized sulphite
of lime) had been highly recommended fo'r
this purpose in some recent works on alp
riculture, the stables were in the first tn.
stance, freely strewn with this salt coarsely
powdered, but though ammonia was is.
volved during the removal of the wetted
straw in sufficient quantity to affect es=
the eyes of ihe e,rooins. I could not, after
two days' exposure, detect the alightest
trace of it io the gypsum when I exam•
hied it Rath slaked lime. This teach. was
the more surprising, as it is known to eve.
ry chemist that solutions of corbohate of
'ammonia and of gypsum are incompatible;
the carbonic acid leaving the ammonia to
form the precipitate carbonate of lime, the
sulphric acid passing to the ammonia; and
I had previously ascertained that, in an at
mosphere so highly charged with ammo
nia as to be destructiveto animal or vegeta.
ble life, a very appreciable portion was ta
ken up by wetted gypsum. The follow.
ing experiments appeared conclusive up•
on the point, that under less favorable cit.*
cumstances not an atom was absorbed.—
Two hundred grains wetted with distilled
water were exposed in a close stable for
three days, precautions having been taken
to avoid any error from evaporation; it was
again weighed, no increase could be per
ceived, nor was any ammonia envolved on
the application of the usual tests; while
two hundred grains wetted with diluted
sulphuric acid, and exposed the same
time, were found to have gained thirty-air
grains of ammonia. The stables were
then strewn with the gypsum moistened
with sulphuric acid,and examined the next
morning; every portion was found to have
absorbed sufficient ammonia to evolve its
peculiar pungent odor when brought iat
contact wall slaked lime, the stables had
also lost their unhealthy smell. To use
the word of grooms they appeared street-'
ened. As it was evident the gypsum acts
ed merely mechanically, affording a con.
venient absorbent surface for the acid, ex
periments were made, substituting saver
I dust for gypsum, with even more favorite
ble results. That the pottioa of free am.
inonia in stables is very large, may lea
shown by the simple experiment of plait
cing a moistened piece of litmus paper.
reddened with weak acid in a -stable. La
one badly cleaned, or ventilated, the effect
is instantaneous; but even in those of Mr,
Evans, where the greatest attention was
paid to these points, the paper was as.
served in a few minutes to become blue.
Even the water kept in the stirblis over
night, (as is the habit, to take off the chill,)
becomes sufficiently impregnated with
ammonia to affect tests. As this alkali is
justly ranked among The most powerful
stimulants, the continual breathing of an
atmosphere vitiated by it_can hardly fail LO
have a prejudicial effect. Grooms are ob
served to be short-lived; and the rapid
course of inflammatory diseases in horses,
and their distressing predisposition to
colds and affections of the chest, are, nu
doubt, aggravated by this cause. The ins
creased salubrity and sweetness of the sta
ble, if pointed out to the grooms, would,
therefore, soon reconcile them to the alight
additional trouble which the adoption of
this remedy would incur.
At Dean House the acid gypsum was
first strewn amidst the straw; but as this
was coneide:ed likely to injure the feet
and clothing of the hunters, it was after.
wards spread on trays. One part of saw.
dust will be found to absorb readily three
times its weight of acid solution:. which I
made with o;:e part, by measure, of .sus.
phuric acid of fifteen uf water. If intends
ed to be tried as a manure, it should be
mixed wit's the straw when removed from
the stable. During the process of rottiog.
the ammoaioas is evolved so freely, that
at the end of two or three weeks the acid
powder, which should not remain more
'thane hree days in the stable without
ging, will be found comple'ely neutralized;
and, as the greatest benefit was derived
from covering up and salting dung heaps.
by which I believe an additional absorp.
too of ammonia could only have gained; it
may be reasonably hoped that an increased
value would result from &manure thus sur
charged with ammonical salts.— Journd

Glorious and Unparalleled Triumph:
All the four Democratic candidates for
Congress elected! Well done, Loui.tietotele
—We are gratified, but not surprised, at
the election of the whole delegation to the
House of Regresentatives by the Demo,
c u lt s. From the start we felt sure of the
first, third and fourth districts; and in the
second we thought the probability of suc
cess was strongly in our favor. To what
causes is this result to be ascribed? This
question involves a more complicated 'lv.
amination than we have time to make.—
We will here remark, however, that after
the abuses of the banks and paper system,
' the partiality of our whig rulers, the intol
erence and violence of their retainers, the
must efficient cause of this demoeratic
tory is to be found in the conntrnacrce
given by the whig press and whig teadeta
to the unnatural rancor and monstrous in,
gratitude manifested by our &doors is
