New Theory cf the Tides.
Ia Soribr.cr'd Monthlj f-.r June we Lac a ntw
theory of the tiJes occupying three pag--fi tf that
pcri'jdicaL For the Leuefit cf the readers of the
AI'V.rti-er I will try to cot lecse the article.
Otjrctiuts to the Prrtent Theory
It ia areuel that tie attractive rower tf
moon, at times ai led Ly the Mia. wiil nd d:es draw I
up a protuberance or water upiQ the eiae 01 tue j
erth turned towarJs them. When in conjunction, .
three-filths cf this lifting power is ascribed to the ;
oj'XD. und the remaining tw fifths to the sun. The !
re;i9ninz here employed necessitates the -oincidence
cf high tide witu the meridUa position of the tnocu ; .
but euch coincidence has never been observed.
"The ordinary tides vary aa much as three hours
frora the time demanded upon the theory ; while un
der circumstances that should triumphantly sustain ;
it, I refer to the conjunction cf the eun and moon.
the flood tide differs by some tbirty-eix hours from j
the time at which it should occur."
Again, according to the current theory, "the .
tidal wave travels with the moon about the earth !
from east to weet once in about twenty-five hours.
" Now it can be shown in fact, and is continually
recognized in the practise of mariners, that the tidal
wave travi.'ls about the earth in the opposite direction i
from west tq east."
Centrifugal Force, the Cause of the Tides.
This force, springing from the law of gravita- ,
tion, whirls the water forward in mid-ocean, as the (
water is thrown forward on a revolving grind-stone.
AIop Objections to the Common Theory. j
Since this theory ascribes the tides to the potency ,
of both moon and sun, allotting two-fifths of the re- ;
sultant to the latter, it should be expected that when j
the sun and moon are in quadrature there would be !
four different tides at one and the same time on f-ur ;
different parts of the earth. The fact is otherwise." '
"At a quarter further on the sun and moon are in .
opposition ; they have the earth between them, and I
hence exert their attractive energy in opposite direc- '
tions. We should therefore expect, upn reasonable :
analogy, to find the resultant a feeble tide, for the
attracting forces should partially neutralize each ;
other, and we should have, instead of the food tide j
which really occurs, but a fractional part, one-fifth, j
of the combined attractive powers as a surplus for i
"A rotating body generates centrifugal force. As
the globe we inhabit presents this motion, so its
oceans should have a wave rolling round in accord
ance with this force from west to east. Allow me to
term this the centrifugal theory of the tides."
" But how does this wave produce two daily tides?
It does not produce two distinct tides daily on the
great southern ocean. Nor does it at all points in
tertropical. It only makes two tides, by gurgitation
and regurgitation, as it is thrown out from its cen
tral crest into the seas between the continents, oscil
lating from one shore to the other, thus producing
high and low water, or flood and ebb tide at the
average intervals of twelve and a half hours ; giving
rise to all grades of tides in accordance to the shape
of the seas and gulfs, bays and rivers, and their
openings to receive it."
" In the Bay of Fundy, with its mouth open to
the swell tide, and contiguous to the gulf stream, it
rises to the height of sixty and seventy feet, and,
when assisted by a wind, to a hundred feet. In the
Mediterranean, with its mouth nearly shut at Gib
raltar, it rises only a dozen inches."
Such is the theory of John Wise in regard to the
tides. But is it satisfactory? Is it certain that a
great centrifugal wave rolls round the earth from
west to east? Wise says that "the first authen
ticate! records we have of this are given in the log
of the clipper ship, Sovereign of the Seas, in her re
markable short passage of eighty-three days from
the Sandwich Islands to New York in 1853, in ac
cordance with Maury's chart famished by our gov
ernment. This ship made 16 knots an hour in her
easting for four consecutive days while riding this
great centrifugal wave in her doubling of Cape
And what does this first authenticated record
amount to? Driven by strong trades could she not
have made as rapid progress for four consecutive
days in an opposite direction? It is well known
that strong westerly winds are very common in the
latitude of Cape Horn, and with those winds the
Sovereign of the Seas should have made 17 knot? an
hour, without any current to help her on.
Again, if his theory is the true one, the tides in
the equatorial regions should be higher than else
where, gradually diminishing towards the poles.
They should also be higher on the western shores of
the continents than on the eastern.
Once more, if the new theory is the true one, how
can we account for the gulf stream? A current
commencing near the coast of Africa, flowing west
ward tu South America, when its direction is
changed, and passing through the Caribbean Sea
and the Gulf of Mexico, it continues its course to
wards the northern regions.
No satisfactory theory of the tides has yet been
broached ; nor is it at all probable that " the cen
trifugal theory" of Mr. Wise will satisfy. Hero is
an opportunity for investigation ; and it may be that
some fortunate student ot Nature's mysteries may
be rewarded by discovering the true theory.
Honolulu, July 1st, lo J. Aliqi is.
Information comes from Kome that the Fope

and all who have favored the wresting from tbe
church of property hitherto held by it as convent
l'.irl Russell has just made a speech on educa
tion, in which he said that "they could have no
good schools unless they had religion in them ;?J
ih:il th teaching of the Bible was the best teach
ing which could be given, and that he trusted it
wuld continue to prosper in England.
A young man in a suburban town sent on his
liit postal card. After writing a message on the
back he enclosed it in an envelope, clapped on a
three-cent stamp, and dropped it into the I'ost
iifliet, remarking that it was a very handy arrange
ment, and should have been introduced years ago.
I'itder the new military law cl Italy, King Victor
Kiiimunuel will soon have a regular army of three
hundred thousand men cf all arms, and a mobile
mititia of two hundred and fifty thousand, of which
n i expected two hundred thousand will be
eflW'tive. This will give him half a million fight
ing men for service, with over one thousand pieces
oi "held artillery.
Mark Twain has been the most successful hu
morist, in a monetary point of view at least, in
the United States. According to an affidavit
6worn to by him in New York, be estimates the
annual returns from his books at .920,000, and
places the small figure over one published volume
of sketches of 25,000.
The origin of postal cards dates from the Franco
Prussian war. The difficulty of soldiers in secur
ing pens and paper upon which to write home
induced the German authorities to issue bits of
paste board to the soldiers lor this purpose, and
they were largely availed of, the messages being
written in pencil. Their use was continued there
after in time of peace, and has since been adopted
in England and the United States.
The Cincinnati Knquirer says: "As is well
known. Captain C. F. Hall, the distinguished Arctic
explorer died, leaving his family in a state of
penury. At the time of his death he was in com
mand tf a government vessel, under an appropri
ation sanctioned by Congress, for the purpose of
the expedition, lie therefore fell in a national
cause, as much so as if he bad perished in battle.
His widow should receive a pension equal to that
given to a colonel in the regular army."
Southern politics must have assumed a very
novel phrase when we find such a veteran Democrat
a Henrv A. Wise taking a prominent place amonir
: the candidates for Governor of Virginia, backed,
as it is asserted, by a Republic an national adminis
i tration. The llrro.ld says that there is but little
doubt that there is a friendly feeling in Washington
j toward the venerable Virginian politician, iu con
sequence of the course he took during the late
Presidential contest, and it would not be a matter
of very great surprise to see him taking the reins
of the State government ot Virginia again in his
hands. This is a good way of establishing recon
struction without misconstruction.
Sumner home travel is likely to be lively this
season, notwithstanding the crowds speeding away

Susan Coolidge says, in Hcribner's Monthly, that
the California tourist must make up his mind to
be well fleeced almost as well as if he had gone
to Vienna. She estimates the general expenses of
a tour to California, including two months' travel,
to vary from $700 to $800 gold. This does not
include the larger excursions South California.

the kite is over the propel pot in the lava beds,

following the fall and explosion of the box would

The Philadelphia D-n.l.fj T.-.U-'ut published a
letter from Mr. Elijah .-teeic. a lawyer in Vreka. in
which the Modoes :ire partially de-eri'ied us they
were before the o ithreak t ilie late trouble-.
Twenty-three years :tgo they were a numerous and
powerful tribe, and those w ho le r.ow left a:e ior
renegades. Tiles were int. ;i" has been asserted,
in the habit of Kmnpin about Vreka. but went
thither twice a year t: trade turs and goose feathers
lor supplies of provisions and clothing, and thus
provided themselves well. Their credit was good
with the merchants o! Vreka. who trusted them
from fall to spring. They were, however, always
requested to camp out of town. Captain Jack,
who was always the spokesman, never drank any
liquor, ami invariably punished any of the tribe
for any wrong doing, whether they were drunk or
sober. They are. according to .Mr. Steele, a supe
rior race of Indians in intellect and physical de
velopment. A grave complication is likely to trow out of the
action of Gen. McKer..ie, commanding a military
post on the Mexican border. Exasperated by the
lawless and unchecked raids of the Kackapoos
from Mexico into Texas. Gen. McICenzie seems to
have dashed across the frontier, penetrated the
eountry to the extent of eighty miles, and attacked
a Kickapoo camp. Ot course, no such pursuit was
anticipated by the Indian3, and they were scattered
or killed. Heretofore the provocation has all
come from the other side of the Mexican boundary
line, but in such shape that only a general com
plaint could be made by our Government. Now,
however, the reprisal ot Gen. McKenzie will give
the Mexican (Jovernment opportunity to ask why
an armed raid has been made into its territory by
a detachment of the army of the United Stales.
An unfortunate culprit was recently brought
before an Iowa justice charged with assaulting
and battering a maiden. Investigation showed
that the defendant had merely saluted the damsel
against her will. SJie was in court and gave her
testimony so very beautifully that the judge was
compelkxl to make a special ruling. He could
not, lie said, in conscience, fine the man for doing
what was done ; " lor," 6aid his Honor, " I have
been obliged to hold on to the arms of my chair
to keep from kissing the complainant myself."
Never did a judge give a more rational decision.
The editor of a North Carolina newspaper
objects to receiving communications concluding in
the following orthographical style t " You will
pleas make enny corecsions nossescry." It is
quite as well if those who wish to write to a
journal know how to sjcll ; but it isn't absolutely
necessary." Like the editors of the Tribune,
we have had valuable information sent to us,
with a good deal of wild deviation from the
standard of "Webster or Worcester ; but the intel
ligence was not the less welcome. Still, we would
not discourage those who prefer to spell eoree
sions " in the usual way.
. Nevada is happy in a new source of wealth
borax. Immense deposits of this useful material
exist in the young Commonwealth, and the peo
ple of the region, having a lively faith in the effi
cacy of encouraging home products in preference
to inferior foreign importations, use exclusively
the boras of Nevada. The Bupply of the crude
article is represented as practically inexhaustible,
and from furnishing just enough for her own
wants, Nevada bids fair to advance in her new
industry until she becomes an exporter of borax
prepared for use. Thus is the good cause of
home industry taking firm root in the rich, broad
expanse of our country beyond the Mississippi.
Gradually evidence is afforded that the antici
pations of Uonapartists, whether or not they be
ever verified, are at least reasonably enough
founded. I'rinco Napoleon, Plon-Plon, as ho is
more familiarly known, has by McMahon's per
mission, been allowed his rights as a French citizen,
of wVich Thiers rather (summarily deprived him,
and is now with his adherents living in Paris.
Shrewdest observers of European politics arc only
waiting for a "split" between the National
Assembly and the President. As soon as it
comes, (and who can doubt that in lime it will
come) McMahon's course must be a positive one.
And it is not too much to anticipate that it will
tend toward the re-establishment of the Iiona
partes on the Freneli throne.
Notwithstanding the abuse hurled at Butler
for his boldness in putting himself forward ns
candidate for Governor of Massachusetts, he has
Jjrospered so finely that he now reports full con
idence of receiving the nomination. We antici
pated that Butler would not immediately sink
under the batteries of his opponents. He is one
of those public men who 6 bed shot with exceeding
ease, and no one need be surprised if he secure
the prize he now covets. Benjamin would not
perhaps lend lustre to the Gubernatorial chair,
but there is every reason to believe that he would
make a reliable and determined Executive.
According to a dispatch from St. Paul, Minne
sota, the track of the Northern PaciGc Railroad
has been completed to Bismarck, in Dakota, a
distance of four hundred and fifty miles from
Duluth. At Bismarck's the railroad connects
with a line of steamboats on the Missouri river,
which run to Port Benton in Western Montana,
from whence freights of all kinds can be shipped
over the sixty-five miles of railroad completed on
the Pacific slopes. It will thus be seen that
although the Northern Pacific Railroad is not yet
completed, it is sufficiently advanced to enable
a new transcontinental route to be opened. This
may be expected to build up an immense trade
before the railroad is finished. In the meantime
the work on the road is Ving pushed forward
with all possible rapidity, and before the season
closes another extensive section of it will be in
The Farmers' National Congress met at Indian
apolis recently, and adjourned on the following
day. As indicating the strength of the farmers'
organization it may 1-c stated that twenty -four
Suites were rcprescutcd, from Vermont to Georgia,
embracing ninety societies, with one hundred and
fifty delegates. According to the report of the
Secretary, there are already ten thousand agri
cultural associations in the country, with an
aggregate membership of four hundred thousand
farmers. It appears that two-thirds of thes?
associations have been organized within the past
six months. 1 he question of transportation was
the most important one discussed by the Congress,
free trade having been given the go-by. The
proceedings were not characterized by any'demon
stratians of a political character. Nevertheless,
an organization that embraces four hundred thou
sand members, with certain political tendencies,
is too formidable to be despised by either .olitieol
arty, and neither is likely to do so.
