The current number of the Medical Gazette con- tain, a leading article on the use of arsenic in the preparation of candles, in which the facts upon which we have already dwelt are re-produced and enforced, the d»nger resulting from the volatiza- tion of the poisonous mineral is pointed out and some facts are related in illustration thereof. Ainong'tliese we fliid the following recent case of poisoning, which terminated fatally. As it is very instructive, we copy it entire ,It Phil- lips toldâthe committee of a case which o.-curred in 1838 at Falmoutn. Mr Heard, who was delivering a lecture on the gases at the Mechanics' Institute inhaled a portion of arsenuretted hydrogen gas, and died about ten days afterwards, in spite of medical assistence. The lecture was delivered on the 5th of I)ecettiber, the experiments in illustration were performed on the 19th, when the fatal inhalation took place, and Mr Beard died on the 29tli." The largest steamer in her Majesty's navy is the Gordon recently f built, being of 1,150 tons, b .ilders' measurement. She will carry 20 day, coals, 1,000 troops, 156 crew, with stores and pro- visions for all tor a period of six months. The engines are of and the vessel i so constructed that the macltinery can scarcely be reached by shot. IONTK A ORDINARY MODE OF RESUSITATION A Youth, named Henry Rice, having fallen ioto the basin, City-road, a quarter of an hour elapsed before he could be got out. The hov was conveyed to the V* enlock Anns, and two surge'mj immediately at(ended, who, after an hour s exertion, were un- successful in their attempts to restore the youth to I ite. A drunken man in the 'ap-room, waking from his sleep, and hearing that the medical inf-n had failed in their attempts, staggered into the room and said he could restore the boy, and applying his mouth to that of the jouth (at the same time in- eluding the nostrils), and by strong suction, as if drawing the breath from the patient, actually reno- vated the Ipd in a lew minutes, to the astonishment of all present. This was the ninth person wliaom this individual had restored to life in similar manner. This extraordinary case has excited much speculation, and .has led to the conjecture that an instrument might be made to answer the means adopted in these instances of resuscitation) which would be highly benciicial in every point of view.
