THE PATHS OF THE SEA,
The following will give some idea of the eloquent
lecture of Lieutenant Maury on ' he Paths of the
Sea," recently delivered in the principal cities: m
the U. H.
Wonders of the Sea-Bottom. But let us pass
from the deep above to the deep "below. The lead is
let down to ie lottom of the sea, and it is curious to
gee the work that is soiner on there. Beautiful coral
islands are built up there; perhaps a part of a one, if
we could dissect it, would be lound to nave come
down the Mississippi, from the Rocky Mountains, or
to have been borne upon the bosom of the. great
Amazon, from the tropics of South America; or,
indeed, parts in that island may have come from
every part of the world, by routes which, if we could
trace them, would seem wonderfully long and strange.
In the cell which one of these little animalcule has
built for itself, we should recognize a part of the
Table Rock from Niagara, and .sand from the Holy
Mountains. It may contain matter from the Euphra
tes, from the sunny plains of southern Europe, from
the battle fields of the Danube and the Nile, or from
the soil of classic Italy. "We know all this, because
mariners have told us of the islands these corals have
built up; they seem to have been at work in the sea
ever since the waters were gathered together in one
place, and looking at the work they have done, the
islands that have been built up, we have a proof of
their eternal diligence and preseverance. It appears
that we had no idea "of the operations that were
carried on in the depths of the sea till we began to
explore it with lead and line, and now it seems a
great charnel-house. Every body who has stood
upon the shore of the sea lias desired to fly away
upon its waves, and learn what there is beyond it ; or,
it possibly, to dive below, and learn what there is
Depiti of tue Ocean. Till recently all was con
jecture about the' depth and formation of the bottom
of the sea; it was supposed that it might be as deep
as a ruottntain is high ; but as to the character of the
bottom, they left that to poets' brains to picture.
Some supposed it scattered over with gold, gems,
enchors, dead men's bones, etc., but Brooke's lead
teaches a different story; it shows that all such
tilings are covered up and buried, deep down, many
feet, by shells and animalcuke. Every-wherc where
i-his admirable sounding apparatus of Brooke has
been, it has brought up shells and the corpses of the
dead. A single quill may bring up thousands nay,
millions of these shells; they are so small that it
requires the minutest microscope to discover them;
they can not be seen when alive. The bottom of the
deep is covered over with their carcasses; they have
obeyed the commandment which was given. on the
fifth day: "Multiply and bring forth abundantly."
Never before now does history give an account of any
attempt being made to measure the depth of the sea.
Chance circumstances caused me to attempt it, and
thinking it might result in good, 1 continued the at
tempt. Congress then passed an act directing the
Secretary of the Navj- to set apart and direct one
vessel to continue these soundings for the purpose of
assisting-in perfecting these discoveries, and also to
allow the whole navy to assist in making the investi
gation in so far as they could without interfering
with their proper duties. In order to get at the bot
tom of the sea, they got some common twine and tied
a thirty-two pound ball to it; then letting it down
into the sea, they waited to see how much line would
run out, and considered the length of that line
measured the depth of the sea at that point. The
twine and ball were left in the sea. As soon as the
deep sea soundings were commenced, we found we
were in a new field ; we found that system would not
do; experiment showed us that when the cannon-ball
was at the bottom the twine continued to run out,
and that the larger the ball the slower the twine
would run. The difficulty of getting' it down was not
because of the increased density of the water, since
that can only be compressed very slightly, but
because that when the cannon-ball had gone down a
mile, it had to drag a mUe of twine after it. Then
we used the same kind of twine and the same weight
of ball for evciy experiment, but we found sometimes
that the twine would never run out. A vessel one
day was sent out to take soundings, or measure the
depth of the sea at a particular spot ; they began at
sunrise, and, as the captain was a very patient man,
they staid there till sunset, the twine still running
out so they came back, and said they guessed there
was no bottom there. This wa3 before we discovered
the under currents.
Instruments for Examining the Bottom of the
Sea. By the use of proper leads we now know the
structure of the bottom of the sea along the North
Pacific, as well as along the Atlantic. The most pe
culiar thing in the North Atlantic is a ridge from
Newfoundland to England, which is called the tele
graph plateau. The deepest point along that route
is about two miles. Having learned this, we must
next get some plan to prove to the people that we had
reached the bottom of the sea, and knew its composi
tion and geography. "We tried to bring up the shot
to which the twine was fastened, but the twine was
not strong enough, and if we used a larger one it was
too heavy for the shot to carry down. Hence we
have the invention of Brooke's excellent apparatus.
The shot is hollowed, with a long reed running J
through it; there are quills in this reed; now, the
shot is left at the bottom, but the quills and reeds
are drawn up. The apparatus is so arranged that
the moment the end of the reed which extends six
or eight inches beyond the ball touches the bottom
the shot falls off, and the rest can be easily drawn
up. Provided with these instruments and facilities
a ship was sent out to the ocean to take soundings,
and it discovered better than gems and pearls at the
bottom of the sea it discovered the telegraph plateau
which is to unite the Old and New World. The
quills, on coming up, contained skeletons of sea
insects of microscopic minuteness ; these were sent to
"West Point, and particularly examined by Professor
Bailey. The speiimens from the calm sea, from the
Gulf of Mexico, from the Gulf Stream, all evidently
consist of one family, and are of one kind. When
Professor Bailey examined the matter brought from
the telegraph plateau, he found volcanic cinders in it.
We could not account for it at first ; we knew that
the volcanoes of South America had cast their cinders
as far as Cuba; but if they came from that source,
we would have found them in the Gulf Stream; so
it was useless to look there for an explanation. It
was next suggested that those cinders lying just along
the track of the European steamers might be the
ashes from those boats; so Professor Bailey told me to
get him some cinders from the ash-pits of the Baltic
and the Pacific. After giving them a careful and
critical examination, he established the gratifying
fact that steamboats are not volcanoes. The source
of these cinders still remains a mystery; but they
show that the matter there lies as soft as down at the
bottom of the deep sea. There is no motion nor dis
turbing force there. Indeed, these soundings suggest
the idea that the sea, like the snow-cloud with its
flakes in a calm, is always letting fall upon its bed
showers of microscopic shells; and we may readily
imagine that the 'sunless wrecks" which strew its
bottom are, in the process of ages, hid under this
fleecy covering, presenting the rounded appearance
which is seen over the body of the traveler who lias
perished in the snow-storm.
Still of the Ocean Depths The ocean, especi
ally within and near the tropics, swarms with life.
The remains of its myriads of moving things are
conveyed by currents, and scattered and lodged in
the course of time all over its bottom. This process,
continued for ages, has covered the depth of the ocean
as with a mantle, consisting of organism as delicate
as the immaculate frost, and as light as the undrifted
snow-flake on the mountains. Whenever this beauti
ful sounding rod has reached the bottom of the deep
sea, whether in the Atlantic or Pacific, the bed of the
ocean has been found of a down-like softness. The
lead appears to sink many feet deep into the oozy
matter there, which has been strained and filtered
through the sea water. This matter consists of the
skeletons and casts of insects of the sea, of microsco
pic minuteness. The currents do not reach down to
f he bottom of the deep sea ; there are no abrading
agents at work here, save alone the gnawing tooth of
time a rope or sand, 11 stretcned upon tne bed ot the
ocean, would be a cable strong enough to hold the
longest telegraphic wire that art can draw. At the
bottcm of the sea there is a protecting cushion of still
wate r " We have had soundings in the Gulf Stream,
and every ifiing at the bottom there is as still as the
grave. If the stream, with its current of four miles
an hour, reached to the bottom of the sea; it would
have torn up or worn through the surface of the
earth, and we would have gone down to the molten
interior. We see in the Table liocK, at ixiagara,
what a small stream constantly wearing away will do.
