INVISIBLE COMBUSTION. FOR THE PORT FOLIO.

A DISCOVERY BY SIR HUMPHREY DAVY.

MR. OLDSCHOOL,

Dr. Bollman has transmitted to a correspondent here, a description of a new experiment of sir Humphrey Davy's which is so curious and amusing as to deserve to be better known. Hitherto it is unpublished. It is a kind of invisible combustion.

Put two or three tea-spoonsful of ether into a wine-glass. In the blue or lower part of the flame of a candle heat some very

thin platina wire coiled up in two or three folds at one end. The coiled end must be heated. While rod hot, hold it at about an inch distance over the ether, moving it slowly about. The incandescence will continue while any pure ether remains. Should the ether take fire, cover it immediately for an instant with your hand, to extinguish it. If this be done dextrously and the wire again brought immediately over the ether at the same distance, the incandescence will be renewed, and so on repeatedly, till all the pure part of the ether be consumed.

Gold, silver, or steel wire will not answer. The platina wire must be about the thickness of the finest harpsichord wire. Platina produces the effect, because it does not oxyd; and because it radiates heat slowly. The flame of the ether while the wire continues red hot over it, and before the ether actually takes fire in the glass (which can always be avoided by a thin wire, and a small quantity of ether) is not visible even in the dark.

The wire must not be so near the ether, as to be enveloped in an atmosphere of ether alone, nor so far above it as to be en. veloped in an atmosphere of atmospheric air alone. The presence of air, together with the vapour of ether is necessary to the success of the experiment, which requires very little management to be performed with uniform success.

C.

THE ADVERSARIA.-FOR THE PORT FOLIO.

FLECKNO. Why Dryden was so severe upon Fleckno does not appear in any of the literary annals of that time. Fleckno had endeavoured to propitiate his kindness by an epigram; but it is probable that the resentment of the poet was excited by his inrectives against the licentiousness of the stage, to which Dryden contributed. But Fleckno is by no means the despicable writer that we might suppose him to be from the niche in his onemy has placed him, as the following verses will amply prove:
