Concluded from first page and tlnco fuct in height, which had been placed un hour before, in the sunshine, in u large, level grass field. Tho wool, twelve minutes after sun down, was found to ho fourteen degrees colder than the air, and to have- acquired no weicht. The swandown, the quantity of which was much smaller than that of the wool, was at the same time thirteen degrees colder than the surrounding air. At tho same time, the srniss was fifteen decrees colder than the air four feet above the ground. From such experi ments, ho established the proposition, that bodies must become colder than the surrounding air, before they become dewed. Ho also explained the reason why there was no dew in cloudy nights. It is be cause the clouds act as reflectors, and throw tho heat back again : in the same manner as the bright top of a tin baker throws down or reflects the heat down upon the bread. A blanket, or umbrel la put over any body, would prevent tho dow settling on that body for someti...
