THE ICE AGE.
, .Professor Hitchcock was intro
duced to the amlicncc with n few
happy icniarks by Chief Justice
Judd. He then proceeded to show
the immense Hold that the subject
opened up mid the change of opinion
that had come over the scientific
world in regard to this period since
the time he had been educated.
Then it was believed that all the
work of tins period had .been done
by floating icebergs, now it, is be
lieved that it was done by glacier..
Ifc then proceeded to show that
Agassiz's theory of 1'ol.ir ice-caps
was untenable. Other theories wcic
touched on, and the glacial theory
.shown to be the most probable. In
this connection the glaciers of
Switzerland and Greenland arc of
i-pedal importance as "modern in
stances" of the workings of the Ice
Age. 1 f showed from the diagrams
and illustrations the first spot where
it wns determined that glaciers
moved. A hut hud been built of
stones by one observer on a glacier.
Some years afterwards Agassiz went
to investigate. He found this hut
sonic 12 miles lower down than the
other had left it. The Professor
then proceeded to define and illus
trate medial, lateral, terminal and
ground moraines, gravel cones,
ylacicr tables, &c. The glacier area
of Switzerland was formerly of
greater extent than it is now ; on the
contrary Greenland is increasing.
Its interior is one solid mass of
glacier ice a sort of frozen Sahara.
Its outlets cany down mud and clay
which form banks at the bottom of
the ocean, and the ends of the
"lacicrs break. ;off forming icebergs,
often a,00(rfoclmi thickness. Here
he alluded t the discovery of
Greenland in 872 a.i., and showed
thai its then large population had
ih indled and died out for want of a
reciprocity treaty with the parent
country. From the fact that peo
ple now live in Greenland man mtty
have lived in the ice epoch.
The lecturer thou went on to give
instances of the distance of trans
portation' of rocks and boulders by
glaciers, and the size of these. One
in Now Hampshire weighed about
(5,000 tons. In New England, what
was ,kiiown to formers as hard pan
was the tletritiw borne along under
the moraine : this is now called by
All glacial areas have been refer
red to centres of dispersion. In
Kuropc there were two : in America
live. These centres slowly dispersed
tile ice all over the continent, north
and south, as far as the centre of the
.States. The evidence that ice cover
ed the whole breadth of the conti
nent is that plants and animals now
uxisting in isolated patches on the
While Mountains and Rocky Monti
tains arc tho snmo as those yet
found in Labrador, but arc nowhere
found between. These- arc not to
be found anywhere on the Hawaiian
mountains, ,so that tliis is the geolo
gical evidence that the ice period
never occurred on those islands.
The lecturer held the interest of his
auiljo'ncc during tho whole period,
and his further deliverances arc
looked for with interest.

are enabled to inform our readers
that the rain fall for the 21 hours
ending at G a. m., on Monday was
2.1 inches and for that ending G a.m.,
on Tuesday was 'o'd inches. So that
in -18 hours a little over three quar
ters of an inch fell.
Wc have received by the courtesy
of the Minister of tho Interior, a
copy of tho laws passed by the Leg
islative Assembly at itsscssion1882.
They have been neatly and carefully
printed at tho Gazette office. It
will now be no excuse, as wc have
been told that it has already been,
for magistrates to say that they were
not aware of the actual provisions of
the session lnws of 1882.
Annexation by Franco is " un
scrupulous aggression," by England
' tho unfortunate pressure of cir
cumstances." This is tho truly
patriotic way of looking at events.
Hero is a little incident which
may interest thopo ofyour readers '
who care about Coronation: The
recent visit of the King of Spain to
tho ancient Kingdom of Aragon has,
excited a considerable amount of in
terest throughout his iloniliiions.
Aragon, now one of the largest pro-,
vtnecs of that Spain which was con
stituted by the Catholic Kings, still
preserves its distinctive churactciis
tics, its traditional faith, and tho
peculiar customs which marked it
out when it was- called the Crown of
Aragon. The men of Arngon nre ns
independent and obstinate as they
were in days of yore ; they adhere
firmly to tho moral and material in
heritance which has come to them
from n long lino of ancestors ; they
affect to-day, if they have not been
horn in them, the peculiar traits of
character which tradition says
should be theirs, thereby making
more palpable the difference between
them and their compatriots of other
provinces : ,thc versatile, untruthful
and careless Andaluz ; the humble,
haul-working Gallcgo; the Man
chego, ever a dreamer; and the Es
Iremciio, whose only faith te in the
excellence of his pork and wine, and
who lives up to his belief. The
Aragoncs is like none of these ; ho
prides himself on his brnsqiieness,
his independence and his capability
of the Fww h hi MunifoxUitfon ite
Aniijnn, or Magna Chart a, as it may
lie called, of ancient kingdom, is
maintained unchanged in its phrase
ology since tho days of the Sanchos.
The''Wifi is road aloud by the Presi
dent of the Provincial Deputation of
Aragon to the sovereign, who kneels
before tho altar of tho Vrryrn del
Pilar in the principal church of
Saragoza, and begins as follows:
'We tho men of Aragon. each of
whom is ns good as you, and of
whom toirotlicr are that homage which
is your duo. .since you have Mvorn to
respect and keep the laws of your
country. Wo will obey you if you
obey tho laws, but if you do not,
we will not."
