They are comprehended under the general proposition, that affinity is not an uniform force, varying merely in its intensity, as exerted by different substances, but that it is much modified by several causes, chiefly by Quantity of Matter, Cohesion, and Elasticity. Of these, quantity of matter h undoubtedly the most important, since it influences so much trie operation of the others, and the doctrine with regard to it affords several important corollaries. The following are a few of the facts referred to in the text, as those by which the truth of-the principle Berthollet has advanced, that quantity of matter within the sphere of action adds to the force of the aflinity which that matter exerts, is established.

The potash had been prepared by alkohol, and contained no carbonic acid: the same served for the following experiments. The operation was performed in a retort, and consequently in communication with the air; and it was continued until the mixture was desiccated: the residue was washed with alkohol, which dissolved' the potash, and after that with water, which also produced an alkaline solution, the alkali of which I saturated with acetic acid; after which, by evaporation, the solution yielded crystals, possessing all the characters and qualities of the sulphate of potash.
