Dr. Grimshaw-I believe, with Mr. Coxe, that this matter is of sufficient importance to be considered only by ballot; and I move that the matter be laid on the table until we can discuss it at length and calmly.

une regenerators are very difficult to get at for cleaning and repairs; 4. the continual changing of the temperature causes their walls to crack, and their alternate expansion and contraction is liable to destroy the solidity of the furnace, or to crack the bottom and allow the molten metal to run down into the regenerators; 5. the metal is liable to boil over and run down as in the preceding case. In order to overcome these objectionable features, I have designed a new arrangement and construction of the regenerators, in which
