Messrs. Bruce and Co., the well known chemists and druggists of Madras, have erected some chemical works near Peram. boor. The first and principal object they have succeeded in making is the well known corrosive acid commonly called oil of vitriol; many other preparations are manufactured by them, for which they were wholly dependent on the mother country. The works exterior present nothing more to the eye of the beholder than a large and extensive pile, composed entirely of sheet lead, within which the acid is prepared. We trust this successful effort will lead to the introduction of other manufactories, for it is high time that something was done to improve the condition of the country. --Athenaum, Oct. 25.

have been fearful. The Molamedan mosque, called the Jooma Musjid, had a narrow escape, the house next to it having been burned. Various condicting accounts are in circulation as to the manner in which the fire originated. Some say that two men of the Purvoe caste having repaired to the shop of the borah to purchase some fire-works, one of them expressed a doubt of their being good ; on this the borah, to give a. proof of their quality, lit a China cracker, which exploded in his hand before he had time to throw it out of his shop : some of the burning portions of the cracker were scattered about the shop, while one unfortunately fell on a bag of gunpowder-the result may be better conceived than described the roof of the shop was blown off, the whole building instantaneously in flames, and the shopman, by some accounts, was killed on the spot. Another account states the fire to have orginated in the carelessness of the purchasing Purvoe, who having lit a cracker, instead of throwing it out, thought lessly dropped it in the shop, but this latter account we think almost too improbable for belief. The fire at first raged with great fury, but was eventually got under, not, however, before it had consumed upwards of one hundred and ninety houses and stalls. The loss of property on this occasion is estimated at about seven lakhs of rupees. Fifty, men of H.M.'s 17th regiment were marched from Colabah to the scene of the disaster, a number of men belonging to the marine battalion were also on the spot. Drafts of seamen from H.M.'s ships For and Pilot, the guardship Hastings, the sloop of war Coote, and the steamers Semiramis and Acbar, lent their valuable as sistance in extinguishing the fire. Several gentlemen were present, and contributed by their directions and efforts to the success of the night. Among them were Mr. Danvers, Major Willoughby, Capt. Parr, Capt. Boulderson, 1. N. ; Capt. Lynch, Col. Seton, &c. After some hours of scyere toil, the men expressed a desire "to splice the mainbrace." This was speedily complied with, and gave them fresh vigour for after efforts. During the conflagration, notice was given to the police, that in the lower floor of a house, the upper part of which was on fire, there was a number of barrels of gunpowder. A party of sailors immediately volunteered the dangerous task of removing them, and actually removed the whole quantity, wbile showers of sparks were falling around them. This is one of those instances of fool bardiness which, in our opinion, is more deserving of censure than praise. We do not wish to underrate the personal courage of the brave men who risked their lives on the occasion, but we would wish to shew that they risked more than their own lives, and that, however cheaply they miglit value their own lives, they had no right to risk, as they did, the lives of hundreds, we may say thousands, of their fellow-creatures. Had a single spark fallen upon one of these barrels, unprotected as they were by any ivet clothi or covering, the communication would have been instantaneous, and the cousequences fearful to reflect on,

The daring displayed by the seamen was no doubt gratifying to the feelings of the service to which they belong, but we think the display in this case was premature, at any rate till an attempt had been made to drown, the powder, an undertaking, we fancy, of no great difficulty with the hose of a powerful engine directed on it. We may remark en passant that it is a matter worth enquiry, at the hands of the authorities, how this large quantity of gunpowder, nearly 4,000 lbs., came into the possession of a private individual. Tlie want of a sufficient number of buckets to pass the water to the engines was much felt, and complained of. We understand that the Moolah in charge of the Musjid objected at first to allow the water of the Musjid Tank to be used, but his Moolaship's objections were speedily overruled. It is almost a pity we think that he and others of the natives who raised similar objections were not ducked in their own wells. As may well be conceived, au occurrence of this fearful nature was not unattended by its mishaps. Two officers and a midshipman of the Indian navy were severely injured, the former by the falling of a portion of a building, and the latter by the explosion of some gunpowder; a sear

seaman too of the same service was injured to an extent that endangered his life, We have not heard how the poor man is. We regret to learn that the loss of life has been considerable--ten children, three women, and two men having fallen victims to the raging fury of the element. Courier, Nov. Ist.
