Sinopsis: This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1848 edition. Excerpt: ...with nitrate of lead. But so far are the people here removed from all external aid and collateral resources, that the nitric acid has first to be extracted from the saltpetre, to form the salt of lead. The workmen display an inconceivable dexterity of manipulation in hastening the precipitation of the coloured salt, which exhibits every gradation of hue, from bright sulphur yellow to deep red. The manifold variety of the products of this important portion of the empire will give peculiar interest to the following calculation of the quantities of the most considerable among them. In point of mass, as well as of financial importance, the iron of the Ural stands first on the list of metals: of this, the enormous amount of 7,400,000 poods (296,000,000 of pounds, or 132,000 tons) is produced every year; four-sevenths of it being destined for the consumption of European Russia; two-sevenths for Asiatic Russia; and one-seventh for the neighbouring states, lying on the S.W. As the total population of the Russian empire is estimated at 53,000,000, we shall find that, with reasonable estimates for the adjacent countries, the whole population to be supplied amounts to about 70,000,000; and, consequently, that, in this quarter of the globe, every individual is furnished with at least 4-1 pounds of iron. The iron thus dispersed from the Ural would, if collected into one mass, constitute a sphere of only forty-seven feet diameter; and, if we assume the ores raised at five times the quantity of iron produced, we shall see that the diminution of the beds of the Ural will not exceed the contents of a sphere of 380 feet diameter in one hundred years. The result of this calculation will, as usual, only furnish another instance of the insignificance of human...
