Tannlngr of Metals.
Among the important discoveries of
modern times is one of changing the
character of metals by a process re
sembling that which skins go through
in tanning. The pores of the metal
arc filled with another metal, or a che
mical preparation of metals. This is
done, by dipping the plates to be opera
ted upon in a melted metal, or oilier
preparation, and then placing them in
an oven subject to intense heat Hy this
process, the new ingredients become
incorporated with ihe principal matter,
so as to essentially change its character
in some respects, especially the plates
are rendered more maleablc, and at the
same time, incapable of oxydation. A
French discovery, applicable to iron,
has been sometime in use in this coun
try, and so far, has accomplished all
which it professed. The sheets of iron
are immersed in melted spelter, and
then baked, as stated above. The iron
is afterwards softer, and does not rust
at all from exposure to air or salt wa
ter. It is therefore far more valuable
formany purposes Iron so prepared
is called galvanized iron. An Kuglish
man some two or three years ago dis
covered a similar process applicable t
copper, spelter and iron. What the
composition is which he puts upon the
plates, we do not know, but his opera
tion is of the same nature with the one
described above, and the c fleets are the
same. The copper becomes impervi
ous to the action not onlv of air and salt
water, but of powerful acids also; and
what is of no small importance for
sheathing of vessels, marine vegetation
and shells do not form upon it. If these
mucinous scutlemcii will but contrive
now, some way of imparting this anti
oxyding quality to iron and steel, with
out impairing the firmness of their
structure, they will have discovered the
philosophsr's stone in a good degree,
and our servants will thank them for
putting an end to the disagreeable bu
siness of scouring knives and forks. A
steel knife that would not rust, would
be better than a silver one, and the same
might be said of spoons, and almost c
very thing else, The peculiar excel
lence of silver consists in its resistance
of oxvdation. For many purposes an
increase of softness in iron or copper is
on increase of value. Ihe improve
ments of which wchavc been speaking,
both lhat invented in France and thai
in Kngland, scorn to us of very great
importance. The original idea, per
I haps, ought to go to the credit of Sir
Humphrey Daw. He mixed metals
