Mineral Chemistry has nearly monopolized the attention of investigators, probably because it is more exempt from confusion in its data and less complex in its products than its sister sciences; for such elements as analysis can isolate, synthesis can recombine. This is not the case in Vegetable or Animal Chemistry, nor can we ever hope to form in our laboratories, substances developed by the long and incessant work of organization:— we may destroy, but cannot reproduce; we may analyze, but cannot effect a similar assemblage of particles unaided by the phenomena of vitality.
