Nevertheless, the expression permanently elastic fluid, although not sufficiently general in its significance to comprehend all gases, indicates the most salient property of so many, and applies so perfectly to the gas under consideration, that we may profitably discuss its meaning. I have therefore to inform you that oxygen gas is permanently elastic; that.is to say, neither cold nor pressure, nor both com. bined, nor, in short, any other agency, has yet succeeded in condensing oxygen gas into a liquid or a solid condition. Now many gases equally transparent and colourless as oxygen have been condensed into liquids, and even solids. I dare say, most people have observed the bubbles which escape from gin. ger-beer, soda-water, champagne, &c. These bubbles are due to the presence of a transparent, colourless gas, named, carbonic-acid ; it has not come under our notice yet, but it speedily will. By the application of intense cold and pressure, this gas may be converted into a solid, having the aspect of snow. A similar result has been accomplished in the instance Instead of a slip of wood use a piece of wax taper, attached, of many other gases; therefore, it follows that the neatly as represented in the accompanying diagram, to a bent piece of turned definition, formerly accepted as characteristic of gases, copper or brass wire.

Abandoning.all logical definition of a gas as hopeless, it is still in our power to entertain a good, general appreciation of the leading characteristic of gases, by remembering that persistent elasticity, under common circumstances, is the special feature by which they are contradistinguished from vapours; the latter being readily condensed. For example, steam, or aqueous vapour, is the result of the application of heat to water. We all know that steam is elastic, or else what would be the use of expansion gear in a steam engine ? But it is not permanently elastic under ordinary circumstances, for immediately on coming into contact with the air, or any material sufficiently cold, it condenses into water. When thus condensed, it two bottles full of oxygen, and open them. Place one to
