THE DECLINE OF THE DRAMA.
When Charles Kemble, at that time one
of the proprietors of Drury Lane Theater,
was examined before the Parliamentary
Committee charged with inquiring into the
tendeocies of the theatrical monopolies
which had existed in England for so long
a period, he wa.-. asked what would be
the probable result of abolishing the
'•patent" theaters, and throwing the
theatrical business open to everyone. He
n . li«-d that the gTcat companies of good
actors would be broken up and dispersed,
and there would no loDger exist establish
ments sufficiently important to maintain
any large body of them : that the bent
plays would no longer tiud adequate repre
sentation in any but a few of the principal
parts ; that the character of the plays pro
duced would be lowered ; that the school
of line and careful acting would b<j lost ;
that no play of Shakespeare's could be
properly put on the stage ; and that the
profeesion and the public would alike
cuffer from the change. Of course Charles
Kemble was interested in the maintenance
of the old monopoly, and therefore his pre
dictions were not regarded at the time.
But whatever may be said in justification
of the abolition of the patent theater*, it is
a noteworthy fact that every one of the
veferan actor's prophecies has already been
fullilled. Writing half a century after
ward", we find a distinguished dramatic
critic, the late George Henry Lewes,
saying: "Tr.e present condition of the
" English drama is deplored by all lovers
"of the art. * * We have many
"theaters nightly crowded by an eager bat
" uncritical public, and no one theater in
" which a critical public can hope to erjjoy
"a tolerable performance." And what
ever is said of the drama in England ap
plies with the same force to the drama in
We have never had patent theaters here,
but our stage lias undergone the same de
cline and deterioration as that of England,
and from causes which are analogous. The
absolute freedom of competition in the
theatrical profession has produced ef
fects precisely such as would follow the
removal of the conditions and restrictions
from the practice of medicine. The stage,
that is to say, is deluged with charlatans,
who are ignorant of the great art of
acting, and who seek to make up in course
impudence, or brutal indecency, for their
| unritness. Aud this is the natural conse
quence of the foolish theory that histrionic
ability comes by nature, and requires no
education. If we were to abolish all our
schools and colleges, or all but the ele
mentary departments, and adopt the theory
that it was only neenssary, after teaching
children to read and wite, to turn them
into public libraries, and leave them
there, we should be pursuing a course
no whit more irrational than has
been followed with regard to the
profession of acting. The truth is
that acting is a great, though almost a
lost art, and that it can only be mastered
by prolonged and laborious study under
competent instruction. To-day there is
but one dramatic school in the world, and
that is the Theatre Francaia at Paris.
And the excellence of that theater is
explained by the fact that it is almost' a
close corporation, under government super- j
vision, and managed with unique strictness.
It has fostered dramatic talent, and pro
duced a long succession of fine actors and
actresses ; a list with which no otber
theater or country can compare.
Even the Theater Francai-, however, has
declined of late years. It cannot contm- I
ually hold out against the d smoralizing in
fluence of the tendencies I y which it is
surrounded. But the history of the stage,
as illustrated in the old English theaters,
and in the Francais, showg conclusively
that there must not only Ik a school of
acting, but that there is also needed that
homogeneity which can ocly be attained
where a company has Iran ed to play to
gether for a long time. Tw«uty years ago
there was some good acting io this country,
and on the Pacific Coaat. That was the
time of the old stock companies, the mem
bers of which had often been together
for several years. But the vicious starring
system has not only broken up the stock
companies, but utterly ruined the presenta
tion of the drama. Every play in which a
so-called •' star " appears is deformed. One
part is thrust into unnaturally strong re
lief, and all the others are Blurred. What
is still worse is that the so-called stars are I
in nine cases out of ten actors and ac
tresses of middling abilities, whose proper
place would be in modest positions in a
stock company. Tlicae mediocre per
fonnere, however, assume the attitude of
people of talent, and, traveling about with
a parcel of sticks for support, degrade the
drama wherevei they go.
The public docs not eeem to know the
difference between good and bad acting
any more. Tnis is to be expected, for the
stage is a school iv which audiences as
well aa actors learn, and the stas»e has for
co many years been teaching corrupt doc
trine that the public have become thor
oughly demoralized. It now prefers the
most vulgar and meretricious display. It
tolerates a school of acting in which the
characters appear only as pegs whereon to
hang showy dresses. It delights in cemic
opera of the French kind. It applauds
fustian and rant, and thinks it proof of
genius. All this should have been ex
pected, however, for in the absence of
education ignoranca will prevail. And
what is more it is quite useless to expect
any improvement in the drama until both
the profession and the public learn to un
derstand that the stage demands patient
and persistent training, and that whatever
is deferring of approval iv acting must be
the result of artistic development. Lswes
has observed that " people generally over
"rate a fine actor's gemus, and underrate
" his trained skill. They are apt to crsdit
" him with a power of intellectual concep
" tion and poetio creaiion to which he has
" really a very slight claim, and fail to
"recognize all the diliicultiea which his
"artistic training has enabled him to
"master." A natural corollary of this
common fallacy is the idea that do special
training or special physique is necessary
to make an actor. Tnoua»nds of young
people think they could be actors if they
tried. They coul las easily play the violin
by mere force of will.
Cut while such fallacies prevail, and
while as low a standard of ta<te exists, the
drama will continue to decline, supposing
it possible for it to go much luwer than i:
is at present. We have sometimes thought
that is* of our rich men, in bequeathing a
portion of his wealth ao as to benefit hi*
fellowa, would do well to endow a Dra- '
matic College, under such conditions as
would render it a useful tender to the
stage. I'erhaps the endowment of a
theater, after the. style of the Francais,
would be Btill better. But certainly there
is great present need of some help to the
recovery of that school and art of really
tine acting which is well nigh lost, and which
every year now seems to be burjing
deeper under the dreary loid of vulgarity
and flippancy which has taken po3sessicn
of the stage. The drama can and ought
to ba instructive as well as arr,usin£». To
witness really tine acting is distinctly bene
ficial to the mind. It is an art study, a
lesson in refinement and intellectual sub
tlety. But so far as any usefulness is con
cerned, the drama of the present day ia
very little superior to the old Miracle
Plays which pleased our coarse ancestors
three hundred years ago. A movement
for the reform of the drama at this time is
called for, and it is one of those reforms
which the profession itself could do much
to set on foot.
A COMMERCIAL PROPHESY.
We are in possession of information to
the tff.-ct that A. 1). Starr k Co., proprie
tors of the Starr flouring mills at Soott
Vallejo, have succeeded in organizing a
company, with ample capital, which will
proceed immediately to erect llouring mills
of unusual capacity nt a point on Car
quinez straits, near lienicia- The exact
location has already been selected. The
proposition is to put up mills second in all
respects to cone in the world, and in size
excepting only the mills at Minneapolis.
These works will, therefore, be the largest
west of the Rocky Mountains, and the
capacity for production will be something
enormous. While the establishment of so
great a manufacturing industry is in itself
a gratifying indication, there are in it sug
gestions that go beyond it. These point
with what may be deemed commercial cer
tainty to the region immediately about the
Straits of Carquincz as the center of a great
population at no very distant day, > u \<- i -t
mg almost wholly upon wholesome manu
facturing industries located there. Toe
| motive that leads the capitalists of the Starr
Company to locate at that poiat will oper
ate with like effect in other casts. The
situation itself is geographically favorable
for its becoming the chief entrepot for the
products of northern and central Califor
nia, regions which we have always held
that, possessing the advantages of soil and
climate, will make them the moßt popu
lous and productive of all the agricultural
districts of the State. The true relation of
ship to rail is more clearly defined by the
situation at Carquinez Straits than at any
other point, probably, upon the coaat, as
we have heretofore showa. To the advan
tages of a safe harbor for ships of greatest
draught, is added close proximity to the most
productive reeions of the State, the great
grain-growing valleys, and with which the
port is connected by systems of railways that
are well nigh perfect as to their courses in
the valleys and their transcontinental con
nections. One of the vital factors in all
manufacturing schemes is the cost of re
ceipt of material and discharge of product.
This cost of handling, undoubtedly as
much as anything else, n.tlueueexi the ac
tion of the company at tirjt named. The
tonnage handling question is almost out of
consideration at Benicia and South Valltjo
ami like points, for the cost involved is re
duced to a minimum not poesible at San
Francisco. The product of the farm arriv
ing by rail from out the Sacramento and
the San Joaquin valleys is capable of de
livery, without intermediate handling,
directly at the Houring-mill, machine-shop
or other factory standing at the very edge
, of deep tide-water ; and after conversion
may be discharged directly upon ship or
car for its distant market, and both these
transfers be made- without an appreciable
tax upon the article for handling. As illus
trative of a diametrically opposite situa
tion, a caee is stated of a given amount of
tonnage which recently came from a south
ern point by rail to San Francisco, destined
forati interior point north of the latter place.
The cost of transfer from the dock of the
first transportation line to the dock of the
Fecond at San Francisco exceeded the en
tire freight charge: d between the points of
departure and destination. Unquestion
ably drayage is a cost tax upon manufact
uring industries in that city that gives to
"utßide competitors an undeniable and
powerful advantage. This and other fac
tors enter into the syllogism, the demon
stration of which will be found in the
steady growth and final development into
great marts of the shipping points in the
Straitß of Carquinez. The inevitable in
commerce is always indicated in its ap
proach by signs that cannot be mistaken,
aud no human device can avert it. The
inevitable for Carquinez Straits plaiuly
points to the conclusion we have outlined.
WfclGHrs AND MEASURES.
One of the proposed laws the next Leg-
Ula'.ure will b«j called upon to consider
will be a Code amendment relative to
weights and measures. The present law
is a dead letter. Consumers rind it next
to impossible to buy, for instance, a cord
of wood foi the price of a cord ; a pound
of butter fur the price of a pound ; and so
on through a long list. In many "-:..!•■■
of the Union sales of such articles are reg
ulated as to weight and measure, and must
bear the mark of a register of Weights
and Measures. It remains to be seen if an
economical and just syßtem can and wiil
be »pplied in California for assuring to the
consumer the value of his money, at least
so far as th« quantity bargained for is con
cerned. Householders who keep any ac
count of the outgo for living expenses are
all aware that they p»y a heavy tax for
shortage on nearly all the fuel they pur
chase, and in an aggregate of years this
amounts to a sum that would pay for
many a modest home. The seller of house
hold supplies must understand that a
proper regulative system wiil in the end
inure as much to his interest as to that of
the consumer, for if he sells short in weight
or measure he may rest assured that he
suffers in like manner in his purchases.
The whole syetem of shortage in quantity
ia one of dishonesty, and should be made
an otfense before the law.
KlHii HUM BE P. To SPEECH.
The King of Italy opened his I'arliamci.t
with a very well- worded and pacitic and
practical speech. It was pacific save in one
particular. It referred to the necessity
of army and navy reorganization in terms
which hinted at possible future employ-
ment for both of them. And it is no doubt
the case that Italy is becoming restless and
uneasy, and disposed to be quarrelsome,
now that she begins to feel her own
strength. It is one of the most unfortunate
consequences of maintaining powerful fleets
and armies, that a necessity always seems
to arise, of rinding something for them to
do. Such costly machinery cannot be
maintained in idleness continually, and
then, too, whatever power feels strong is
always tempted to stand more and more
upon its dignity, and as it were to trail its
coat, after tbe fashion of an Irishman at
Donnybrook Fair. Yet Italy has abundant
work before her at home, and King Hum
bert has not failed to point out the princi
pal needs of the time. She has to buiid up
her young commerce, to improve htr agri
culture, to reform her educational system,
to pat the masses in a fair way to secure
enlightenment. Foreign wars would be
most mischievous for her at present. For
the next fifty years she ought to isolate
herself, if necessary, rather than become
entangled in any foreign difficulty. Thuß
far her Government has skillfully avoided
such difficulties, though the Tuais affair
proved a dangerous temptation. It re
mains to be seen whether the same pru
dence will contiua-j to characterize her
A TASTE OF MEXICAN COMMERCE.
A restaurateur of this city happens to be
the pionper, in an experimental way, iv
what proves to be a trade of much import
ance for California with her sister State on
the south, Mexico. Californians have here
tofore been placed at a disadvantage in ca
tering to the quite universal taste for that
palatable bivalve the oyster. Various ex
pedients have been resorted to from time
to time by dealers to furnish our people
with that shell-tish, as found in its
perfection in the Chesapeake. All the
methods adopted, however, have been
at heavy cost, and have made the
Eastern oyster more or less a luxury here.
For a time direct shipments were success
ful ; but a 9 the novelty wore off, the edge
of appetite was dulled by the heavy tax
necessary for its gratification. Then came
the traatplanting system, and this met
with a large measure of success, nntil
recently an advance in prices has made
even the " plant " a lexnry not often to be
indulged in, and has led to the renewal of
shipments of Baltimore oysters in her-
metrically-sealed cans packed in ice. But
under this latter plan the lover of the
toothsome food loses Eomethirg of the
original flavor of the bivalves, and cannot
enjoy them upon the conventional " half
"shell." The completion o/ railway lines
southward has recently brought the cities
of this State into direct and daily commu
nication wich northern Mexico, and notably
with the port of Guay mas on the Gulf of Cali
fornia. At that point and in that vicinity
are beds of oystera supposed to be practi
cally inexhaustible. The Guaymas oyster
is distinctly superior in quality to the
large-bhtlled Mexican oyster that a few
years ago vraa sought to be introduced into
this market, being brought to the State by
the steamship lines. That article, while
rerr.crkably large and very fat, had a slight
taate of copper— besides it was found that
the water transit waa too lengthened to
insure the arrival of a cargo in jiriine con
dition, and this risk added so greatly to
the cost that the shipments soon cased.
The oyster from the Gulf of Jalifuruia,
however, though smaller, ia more deli
cate in texture, and it Lears a
closer resemblance in quality to the
best found on the Atlantic cast
than any yet taken on the Pacific. The
opening of the railway line to Cuaymas
suggested the practicability of bringing the
Gulf oyster here in the shell, and the
dealer indicated made the experiment dur
ing the current week with tucoe»a. A
goodly-Bized box of the desirabU molluf-k.
without any extra packing or use, arrived
here in perfect condition, and the fhells
were found, in their unusual depth, to con
tain enough of liquor for the oyster to feed
upon for -a week or more. The taking of
the oysters at Guaymas is effected bo
cheaply that they sell ttiere at the nominal
figure of 25 cents per hundred, and it is
probable that an active demand will so en
large the industry as to lower that
price under the stimulus of compe
tition. The sample lots brought here
have involved an expenditure of
•?G per 100 pounds, and each 100 pounds
averages 300 oysters, so that the Gjaymaß
oyster, on its experimental introduction,
costs the purchaser two and a quarter
cents. But it is certain that the transpor
tation charge by car lots will be much less,
and that the opening of an oyster trade
with Guaymaa will bring about a schedule
of rates that will place the article in Saa
Francisco and Sacramento at a reasonable
figure. While such a trade may serve two
purposes, to break up ruling prices and
gratify epicurean tastes, it is also signifi
cant of the new relation we bear to the
northern States of Mexico, and which must,
in the nature oi thing*, result in an inter
national commerce by land transit of great
importance. As Sonora, Chihuahua and
Sinaloa find in California a market for their
products, our manufacturers, producers
and merchants will find a profitable return
trade. In short the oyster aa one of the
pioneer 3of new trade for California, will
be entitled to the distinction of calling at
tention forcibly to the possibilities the new
railway lines southward open to us.
OFFICERS AND G£:«T .tBIEN,
The Judge-Advocite-General has decided
that officers of the army who will not pay
their debts cannot be arraigned under the
Articles of War for conduct unbecoming
officers and gentlemen. This ia a decision
which we presume will be received with
relief in certain army quarters, but it is a
singulai decision. Of csurse the question
what constitutes "conduct unbecoming an
"officer and a gentleman " is a broad one,
and naturally covers, or can be made to
cover, a great deal of ground. It is also
true that in some countries officers in the
army havi habitually been disposed to dis
sipation and the incurring of debt. Bat
would the Judge- Advocate-General be pre
pared to say that the line of condnct com
plained of is peculiarly becoming in an
officer and a gentleman ? A gentleman is
supposed to be, among other necessary
qualifications, a just man. He certainly
cannot be a cheat, a swindler, a habitual
liar, a promise-breaker. Yet it would
btem impossible for an officer to be in the
position of a man who will not pay his
debts, without being liable to gome if cot
all of theae charge*. Fer the man who re
fuses to pay his debU must be assumed to
be capable of paying them if he would.
Or if he is not capable of paying them,
then he must have contracted obligations
while knowing at the time that he could
npt meet them ; and that is not honest. In
fact it is quite impossible to reconcile any
theory of gentleman: hood with the case of
a man who refuses to pay his debts. Such
a man may be aa officer, but he cannot be
a> gentleman ; and if bis conduct is not
"unbecoming an officer and a gentleman,"
then there is no meaning in language and
no significance in deeds.
APP ARENTLY CRUEL.
The ac-ount of the examination of Kuma
Bond, the poor girl who was the victim of
so dreadful an outrage in Illinois !aat snm
mer, seems to show what can only be char
acterized as great cruelty ou the part of
the Court. Miss Bond has been lying
dangerously ill ever since the outrage, and
after having been given ovi r, slowly im
proved in health, though continuing to be
subject to severe spasmodic attacks. Wnen
she was placed on the stand it seems that
she Buttered ono of these attacks, but the
examination was pressed, and notwithetaad.
ing thatshe had three similar seizures duncg

THE FORTIFICATIONS OF PARIS.
A recen* dispatch appeared to be to the
effect that the Municipality of Paris had
voted for the removal of the fortifications
which enciiole the city. We should say
that there must be some error about this
statement. The Municipality of l'aris has
no jurisdiction over the fortifications, and
therefore woul.l not be likely to take a
vote on the irrelevant question of removing
them. Tne Government and I'arliament
would certainly not li.-.ti-u to any such pro
position, for immense sums have been ex
pended sinoe the close of the war with
Germany in reuairiujj, improving! aQ d ex

the drift of the telegraphic statement re

Last week mention was made of the ap
pearance of several very fine displays if
aurora borealis. The gains phenomenon has
been witnessed again this week, and was par
ticularly brilliant on Monday morning. Ser
geant Barwick, of the Signal Service Depart
ment, who haa been a spectator of the
numerous displays of this kind of late, has
prepared tae following for the Kecobd-
The aurora on Monday morning, the 201h
mat., was quite a prttty aitrht to th"«e per
sons who hail never seen one. People who
had lived or viaited iv the regions of thegreut
fresh water lakes of the world, viz., Superior,
Michigan, Huron, X U and Ontario,
■ would tot consider it to have been any cuni
iiarison to the auroras that ars alunwt con
atantiy setn during the fall ie euch grandeur
and iuiijosiig ni&gnitictnca in that pirt .'f the
Uuited States. To see these northtrn electric
lights in their beauty, eouliuspMi g, and
panoramic CuaDges of color, shape ai.il dae,

which gives v good conducting m-diutn

" The study," says Professor Cleveland AbDe,

Apri! 7, 1874, tends to remove it from urn- nj

The tornua wuich the aurora sa-ua-es are

Commonly, btreanr.s of li h 'ht are Keen shootiug

omaoie tin; Amett, furever found rl >i«tir>j; i.ver
our superstitious anil egotistical head*, show
ing how the !■ ws of nature have distributed
her ti^his ol grar.deur tud beauty.
In the torrid and teuiptrate z men the
pletasing, attractive Mtd c»ei-chan^iug scenes
of nature are piiucipaliy sriotvn uu./i. th
earth in her carpet of greeu, rtTHWfrrl wi.h
fruits, grains, grasses acd other (arinacdou
f >viU for man and b*:ist. On the other haod,
when we reach the firever frozen frigid Z'neH,
we hr.d silence reigns almost supreme, ana
covers earth, bay and sea with mount ims
of frozen water. The only (tight left to chetr
aadawe one, withits unbounded ma^citicetce,
is the undesccinabls auroral display that
dances higti in the heavecs, while the fir-,
.■'ii n nearly over our heads in wiiwirnr. ap
pears to the cheerful resident of that frigid
region as a large ball of m 1 ' - ■ i gold, t! mating
alone the horizon, and for months not viable.
Iv that meat inhospitable region electric or
auroral lights shine for days and nightr-, r.i l
lends its tver chancing scenes of color, sh&pa
and size to cheer t :e eileut tctnes of nature
where the sun was not ceen to lise. This
knowledge tenches uh to believe th»t the au
rora mint be electr'ci:y, for it ariects very
much the magnetic needle. Professor LouiuU,
iv ep^akiug of the
UISTUKBAJiCE OK THE MAGNETIC NEEDLE,
Says: "The aur.ra is ordinarily accoir
pauied by a considerable diaturbanca of the
maguelic needle, and the fctfict increises
witu the briiiiatcy and the extent of tte au
rora. Auroral beam* c»uae a disturbance of
: the needle, particularly when the beams
j cliein>tlveß are ia active uiotion. Auroral
waves or flubes, particularly if they extend
to the zenith, ciuse a violent agitation vi the
neec-le, coniistiag of an irregular osciliatirj
on each side of its ir.ean po-ition. These ex
traordiuary deflections of the n»edle prevail
almost simultaneously over a lar^'e portion of
the nljbe, even where the- aurora i:.*cif i» not
visible. During the grett auroral display of
September 2, 18H>, the disturbances of the
magnetic meile were very re&i&rkable
throughout Xor'.h America. Europe and
Northern Asia, as ws-11 as iv New Hollan'l.
At TcroDto the deflection of the needle
changed 3 4.V ia half an hour. The inclina
tion wa« observed to change V 40' when the
ueejie passed beyond tho limits ot the scale,
so that ite entire rar.gp was unknown. Ac
several o! scrvations iv Europe still more re
markable cirtturbftrccH were recorded.
"Theeecuiar iuequality in tha frequency rt
auroras indicates the influence of distant cc
-1 s'.ial bDdies upon the electricity of 001 glo> c.
The p-ritds of aur->ras observe lawa which
are similar to t!io»e of two o.her phenooieiia,
viz , the mem diurnal variation of tlie niss
netic needle, and the frtq lency of bkek cp^ts
upon the eun'c surface.
"The magnetic ueedle has a !>mall diurnn'
variation, the north end movicg a lictle to the
east in the ic.mieg. and toivar.l the wtst
nb.<ut the midUe of the day. The mean
diily change of th J ui-^dle not only varies
with the KcOity, but aUo varies from one
ye ir to another at tlie same locality, and
these variations pi-cent a very decidod ap
l;9arance of periu' icity. At Prague tha nienn
daily change of the creJle in 1838 w.is 12
minutes, from wttieh iiu;e the rau^e <'.imin
ished steadily to IS!4 whrn it was only 0
minutes, frum which tiaie it ircrea^ea to
IS4S, wheu it amounted toll mitutfs, the ii.
ter\al from one maximum to another btitig
a little more than teu years. Observations
made at othsr place*, a;id extending back
nearly a century, iidicate a maxiunim ia tne
raree of the uiairuetic needle every tsn or
eleven years, but the successive maxima
are not equal to each other. They exhibit
variations which indicate a periid'city, the
greatest values occurring at intervals ot fr.m
fifty to sixty years.
" The relative frequency of the solar ppits
exhibits a similar periodicity, and the maxi
mum number of spots corresponds with the
maximum vuiue of the nibgcietic variation.
These three phenomena, the solar spots, the
mean daily range of the magnetic needle, and
the frequency of auroras, exhibit two distinct
period.- — jne a period of from teu to twelve
years, the other a period of from fifty-eight
to sixty years. The first of these periods
corresponds to one revolution of Jupiter, and
the otber period corresponds to five revolu
tions of Jupiter, or two of Siturn, and we can
scarcely doubt that the above-mentioned
phenomena depend upon the movement of
tnese plat ets. Observati ns have also indi
cated subordinate fluctuations, which are
probably due to the action of Venus. We
do not know how the planets exert an in
fluence upon the Buna surface, but we may
suppose that then are circulating roucd the
sun powerful electric currents, which may
possibly be the source of the pun's light.
Tnese currents may act upon the planets!
developing in them electric currents, and the
currents circulating round the planets may
react upon the solar currents, with a force
varying with thtir distances and rela
tive position, exhibiting periods corre
sponding to the times of revolutions
of thn planets. These disturbances
of the solar currents may be one cause of the
solar spots, and an unusual disturbance of the
solar currents may cause a disturbance of the
currents of the earth's surface, giving risa to
unusual displays of the aurora.
CIBCCLATION OF ELECTRICITY ABOUT THK
"The vapor which rises from the ocean in all
latitudes, but most abundantly in the MM
torial regions of the earth, carries into the
upper regions of the atmogf here a consider
able quantity of positive electricity, while the
negative electricity remains in the earth.
This positive electricity, after rising nearly
vertically wr,h the ascending currents of the
atrir npliere, would be conveyed toward either
pole by the upper current* of the atmosphere
" The earth and the th« raritied air of ttoh o
upper atmosphere may be resarded as form
ing the two conduc'iDK platea <:f a condenser,
which are separated by an insulated stratum
viz : the lower portion of tho atmospher.-.
liie two opposite tljctricities must then be
condensed by tbeir mutual ir.fiuence e<p>
