such quantities aa to be very tangerous, because it
is not onryjntlammable, but when mixed witb tne

following grapmo accounUa Irom-tbepoB of -fwosev
u Liockwood, prime actor in tbe scene be to woll
describes, that we leave the mode of collecting and
experimenting upon this curious compound o be
gathered from hit own word. Ex.
1 he student! at West Town Boarding School,
Cheater couoty, Pa for want of a better place,
bathe in a mill pond of very limited extent., Ches
ter Creek, a mere brook, enters at the northern
extremity. The banks on all tides are covered
with timber, from which an abundance of leaves
and decayed wood find their way. iilQjand.
Thence the great quantity of gas, that every per
son wading in the pood must have noticed. .t
1 nrsi viattedjho place lo the year ana on
noticing the gas, determined to collect some for the'
purpose of examination. Taking a apparatus a
belLgbiaa furnished witrraratopockTl taper, and
as companion an assistant leachcnn tho school,
we proceeded to the pond, readily filled the recciv
era, and fired the gas i&wing from the stop cock.
e next proposed to burn the bubbles at they
gat ascended up in large quantities, attoruing an
admirably tucccsstul experiment. No a toner was
the lighted taper brought near the surface of tho
water, than we found ourselves cnvolopcd in flames.
To retreat wai of course tho first imuluse.
,? Fire and water though usually antagonist elo
monts, in this instance formed an alliance to friend,
ly, that to our amareincnt as well as our conster
nation we were pursued to the vory banks. We
however escaped with but a slight scorching.. We
toon found means, however to repeat tho experi
ment with perfect impunity. This was dono by
selecting a position where the water. was three or
four feet deep, lying upon our backs with our legs
extended ; and allowing no part of our persons lo
touch the bottom except the feet, over which tbe
gat might Iw inflamed, and would continue to burn
as long as the leaves were stirred bcnoalh.
In this way we could cause the flame to follow
ut several rods. Ry raising the feel at pleasure it
would expire. 1
Witli ibis experience, we determined to repeat
the experiment iu the presence of the scholars
Their next visit to the pond was tVferred till eve
ning, that darkness might render tho phenomena
moro imposing. Tho boye were simply informed
that " Master Moses was going to set tho pond
afire," and thai their assistance would be necessa
ry to tho (satisfactory performance of the expert
ment. The usual preparation for bathing betnj
mane, tuiy of the lest timid entered the water,
with the injunction to atep as lightly as pjbl
till the pond was discovered lo be on firowhen all
would be at liberty to proceed at would besl suit
their inclinations. W e toon canw to a favoraulu
spot, and the gns beginning to como up freely, a
lighted Upcr was brought near tho surface, when
