Free ANTIMONY, Ore of, Crude, Regulus

Free DESCRIPTION. Antimony is a mineral substance having all the seeming characters of a real metal, except malleability. It is a general help in the mixing of metals.-Ed.

PRICE, &c. Antimony, which we obtain almost entirely from Borneo, has risen from 5s. and 10s. to 51. to 6l. per ton. In the last war a considerable supply of this mineral was obtained from the old Trewether mine in Cornwall, which is believed to be the only mine in the United Kingdom where regular lodes of it exist, and this was sold at 801. per ton. It is about 25 per cent. less pure than the antimony from Borneo.-Press, May 13, 1854.

CINCHONA BARK OF BOGOTA. We have good reason to suppose that the seeming contradictions which have been published about the Cinchona bark of Bogotá, and of its chemical constitution, are easily accounted for by considering the varieties of bark coming into commerce under the same name from the same district. Secondly, that the barks that are now-a-days exported from New Granadla are not all China Bogotensis, but are so different from one another, that we must acknowlerige that they come from different trees; a few of these barks, those growing in the plateau of Bogotá or its vicinity, I have noticed above. And further, that because the barks come from New Granada they should not be underrated, for they contain some of the best sorts. Schâuffele and Bouquet have shown, that some barks obtained by them direct from the exporter Lopez, of New Granada, are as rich in quinine and cinchonine as the China calisaya vera, while naturaily, others are not so rich, and some are poor ones.--Exequiel Uricoechea, of Bogota, Pharmaceutical Journal, April, 1854.
