and heard on June 13, when Mr. Hatt, having removed his
cows, paid the costs of the summons, which was withdrawn.
A return was filled up showing the cows slaughtered by
direction of the inspectors, under the authority of the orders
of the Privy Council, between the 26th of August and the
23rd of September, 1865. It appeared that 10 of Mr.
Dexter's cows were slaughtered, which he valued at £180,
and 45 of Mr. Hatt's, valued at £810.
APPENDIX. No. IV.
Seventy-two observations were made during the quarter,
upon the six gases supplied by the Chartered, London, and
Equitable Companies, at Nos. 40, Parliament-street, 73,
Bessborough-street, and 78, Cambridge-street, respectively.
The gases were burned in accordance with the Metropolis
Gas Act, 1860, and the illuminating power continued above
the standard required by the Act.
With respect to purity, all the gases were free from
sulphuretted hydrogen, and so far free from ammonia, that
they did not discolour the turmeric paper, except on April
3rd, 10th, 17th, and 24th, when the common gas of the
London Company presented slight traces of ammonia.
