cat, and the duodenum of a dog-, after the poison had been injected
into those parts. Thirty-six grains of acetate of morphia were
injected into the crural vein of a dog, and 30 grains into the
jugular vein of a horse, but none could be detected in the blood,

after the poison was injected, it was found in the blood. M.
Lassaigue concludes from his experiments, 1. That in many cases of
poisoning by acetate of morphia, sensible traces of that vegetable
poison may be chemically detected. 2. It is alvvajs found in the
viscera in which it was first deposited. o. The contents of the
stomach, ejected by vomiting soon after the injection of the poison
into it, contain ponderable quantities of the acetate of morphia.
4. All attempts to detect its presence in the blood of animals
poisoned by acetate of morphia, have been ineffectual.--(Journ. de
Pharmacie.). 2. Cause of the Odour of Hydrogen Gas. In our last
number we quoted some observations by Berzelius respecting the oil
which communicates to hydrogen gas, its peculiar odour: as the
circumstance, although well known to chemists, has been seldom
adverted to, we shall lay before our readers a brief account of
some facts which had been previously ascertained respecting
it..About the year 1800, Proust stated, in a memoir read before the
National Institute, that this peculiar odour resides in a volatile
aromatic oil, of a bituminous flavour, which is held in solution by
the gas; and in support of his opinion, lie add...
