To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, llUNCAN M. Buns, of Wilmington, in the county-of New Hanover and State of North Carolina, have invented a new and useful Improvement n1 the Manufac ture of (his from O1-gnnic Substances, such as pitch-pine, sas'safras,juniper, myrtle, peanuts, cotton-seed, 61c; and I do hereby declare that the following is a fuH, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which- Figure 1 represents a side elevation,"partly in section on line mm, Fig. 2,..01 the apparatus 1 employed in the of oils from organic substances. Fig. 2 inatopvicmparttyin horizontal section; and Fig. 3 is a vertical transverse section of the same on line i; 3 Fig. 1.
' The invention will first be described'in cennection witht-he drawings, and then poin'ti out int-he claim.
In the drawings, A represents a boiler or retort of cylindrical shape, to 'be charged througha lid. B. The cylinderA is heated by a furnace, C, placed near the chargingend of the cylinder, the'fire passing along its entire length;
and the of combustion being drawn off through a smoke-stack or chimney at' the op.- posite end. g
Dis a reverberatory flue arranged around cylinder, and connected by an opening with the furnace. It runs diagonally over and down the whole circumference on both sides of the cylinder, and thence along the wall, returning over and across the cylinderfouror more times,opemfigfinally intothe chimney. Above thebrick-wo'rk of the reverberatory fluc D is a layer or covering, 1), of 1 49 The cylinderor retort A is charged through the end door, B, with the organic substances, and alsqthrough pipes b a at both sides of the doorwith-steam and carbonic-acid gas, so as to the gases into the materials and increase thereby the yield and quality of the product operation is as follow: Fill the cylinder pitch-pine, sassafras, juniper, myrtle,

The vapor generated is conducted into the large retort, which is heated nearly red-hot, andthe hydrogen liberated. The other retort E is charged with ten quartsof water, twopounds ofcrrlponnte of 'lllllllU- nia, and thirty-two ounces of vitriol, strength.) the latter being applied by drops througha tube.
