21 Since the last report several new cases of catarrh have occurred, and some of the convalescent pulmonics have suffered a relapse. This may be occasioned hy the variations of temperature whirl still continue ; if the middle of the day is warm and genial, the evenings are cold, and perspiration is suddedly checked. Invalids and delicate persons especially should be cautious, and not trust too niuch to the inviting appearance of a briglit san and clear sky--the easterly winds have not yet ceased; their fatal influence on pulmonary aifections is still manifest.

The case of' tiç douloureux occurred in a woman aged fifty, who was first attackert

[ocr errors]

with the complaint when fourteen years old. She has been subject to it at intervals ever since. The third branch of the fifth pair of nerves appeared to be the parts affected. The pain was excruciating whilst it lasted, and sometimes contined with little intermission for several days successively. Her general health is good, countenance ruddy, the funcțions natural. Having formerly witnessed the good effects of liquor ammoniæ in this very painful disorder, and having received favourable accounts of its efficacy from very remote quarters, from persons who had tried it, in consequence of Wy soggestion in the Medical and Physical Journal several years ago; I recommended it in this instance with considerabie confidence, notwitlistanding the length of time that the complaints had continued.

The two first days no benefit was perceived from the medicine; on the third, the patient felt faint; the pain became less intense, and more contracted; and, in the course of a few days, the dose of the medicine being increased, entirely ceasest.

It seems hardly credible that so painful a disorder should yield to this simple remedy, which I have known to succeed when opinn, cicuia, ctlier, and arsenic, have failed. But the economy of the nerves is yet little understood. It appears highly probable from every inquiry that I have been able to make, that the disease in question is seated in the substance of the nerves, which being exquisitely sensible, a cause so slight as not to produce any visible derangement of parts, 'may yet occasion extreme pain,

Tic douloureux does not occur so frequently, as, from the number of cases that are recorded of'it, might be snpposed. It is conforinded with megrim, rheumatic pains, and spasmodic affections, and the consequences of carious bone and diseased teeth, near the parts affected with pain; and these being relieved by various remedies, tije ti doulourenx is supposed to be cured by them; hence it has been deemed by some, a common disease, and one which readiiy yields to medicine.

I do not remember having observed in any instance of the complaint, an external variation of parts, or general disease of the system; the violence of the pain may excite a momentary Aush on the cheek, and the patient may for a while refrain from eating or taking exercise; but this is not from want of power or inclination, but to avoid exciting a paroxysm of pain, which is often brought on by the slightest touch or motion. Patients who liave sufficient coolness to observe their feeling, remark that the pain is not continued, but comes on in quick sharp twinges or pulses, yet the intermissions are go short as to be hardly distingnishable. I once thought it in some degree connected with a gouty habit, but subsequent experi- nice has not contirnied the opinion; and I now believe that in those cases in which gout alternated with ric doulourenix, the occura rence was accidental. Both diseases are higlıly painful indeed, but the nature of the pain is as different as the symptoms in either disorder are opposite ; neither does there seem any assimilation or correspondence in babit, predisposing to either complaint; in other words, the habit favourable to gout is not more disposed to tic douloureux, than is the constitution in which the disposition to gout is not apparent.

REPORT OF THE PROGRESS OF CHEMISTRY.

VIR HUMPHRY DAVY has lately read, before the Royal Society, a paper upor

yessel being capable of holding it without being acted on by it so as materially to alter the specific properties of fuorine. When combined with hydrogen it forms fluoric acid, which is safficiently well known for its power of corroding glass, and, with silica and boron, it forms peculiar acids. He detailed also a number of attempts to decoinpose silica, and obtain the substance whichi Sir Humphry has denominated silicon, which he conceives is not a metal, but of the same nature as boron, a body which possesses intermediate properties between sulphur and charcoal. He concluded his paper by some observations on the scepticism of many chemists as to tie nature of chlorine, and statert that it is erroneous to suppose that oxygen is the only, acidifying principle, hydrogen forming as niany acids as oxygen; or that combustion can only take place when oxygen is present: fluorine, chlorine, and iodine, being equally supporters of combustion.

MR. JOHN DAVY has instituted some experiments with the view of investigating the. nature of animal heat. He is inclined to believe that this phenomenon is owing to the change which tlie blood undergoes' during its conversion from the arterial to the venous ştate. It is well known that the specific heat of arterial is different from that of venous blood, and it consequently follows, that, when one is changed into the other, the .evolution of a certain quantity of heat must take place; but, whether the heat' this extricated is the only heat which an animal body generates, has not been satisfactorily shewn. No donbt, there are many other processes continually carried on in the animal machine, which may and do furnish it with heat: and, until we are better acquainted with the intricate parts of playsiology, and more especially with the nature of the influence of
