Colonial Glue.-The advocate of the manufacture of colonial glue, thus expresses his opiuion of ihe article produced by Messrs. Dennys. " Judging by the clearness lind bril hancy of fracture, one specimen of gluu sent to tour oflii.e by Mtssrs. Dennys and Co. is evidently superior to tbe best English glue I have seen here. Another test, and perhaps the best, is its power of absorption. Applying this to a fair specimen of imported glue, and comparing it with that of Messrs Dennys, I find the ratio of the former to its weight as 1 to 2-15 ; that of the la'ter as 1 to 2-3, showing a superiority in this respect also. 1 he workman would not perhaps, consider lins sufllolent, and I would therefore suggest that a pound, us a simple be sent by Messrs Dennys and Co to me principal con- sumers for t-tal. ! hoy would, I feel sure, g1» Hy pnrchase it, seeing that on its success they will obtain the article at ao reduced a cost "
