This may be attributed to tho rough and barbed edges peculinr to the fracture of cast nrscml-tluidziuc; similar to tho stato In w hleh it appears iu tho amalgam. Somo similar nctioti Is effected by sodium nmnlgnm, by tho use oi gritty silver for amalgamation of battery nprons. and finally by tho uso of amal gam, rich in gold, iu nrastrn, batteries aud pans. In olt,hcr enso tho effect is superior to that of plain quicksilver, tlio suifiico of which by its smoothness, oilers less resistance. Zinc, of all met ats, exhibits tho strongest inclination to this peculiar barb-like crystallization. Kven In tho melted condition, tho pas sago between tho particles is not smooth, but rather, ns it were, bristled with In numerable barbed hooks, which grap ple tho gold and silver, instantly tak ing it up Irom nuy siibstnnco jinssing tliiopgh it; mid to this peculiarity may bo traced tho extraordinary rotontiyo faculty of tho molted rine, for gold and silver, far surpassing that of any other substance iu distance. Mlllmcn will find it of gieat ndvanatago to use slno with their quicksilver. The uso oi it iu this manner is not patented, but has. been employed in Mexican mines, and is therefore freo to ull. It requires on ly to bo known to bo uppiecialod. One dollars' woith ol zlno saves pounds of croid nud silver.
