It has at all times been known to the planter that the losses sustained in one way or other in the manufacture of sugar have been considerable; but the sources of those losses, and their real amount, were, until lately, subjects on which a very general ignorance prevailed. The extensive researches which have of late been made in organic chemistry, and the application of this department of science to the manufacture of sugar, as well as to other branches of art which have required its assistance, have given us much clearer views on both these points than we formerly had; and we are now able to arrive at the most accurate conclusions respecting the amount of losses sustained, as well as furnished with the means, if we choose to avail ourselves of them, of discovering the causes which produce them. It has been ascertained, by experiments so numerous and so varied as not to admit of a doubt respecting the accuracy of the results obtained by them, that the stem of the sugar-cane consists essentially of two elementary portions or divisions, the one being the woody fabric or skeleton of the plant, the other the fluid contained within it; and that the relative proportions which the two bear to each other may be stated in round numbers to be ten parts in weight of the former, and ninety parts in weight of the latter in' every one hundred.
