Prof. Hitchcock introduced his
lecture on the above subject by a
short disquisition on the geological
periods, which were agreed op by
scientific men. First, there is the
Azoic period (without life), of
which the rocks aic never scon on
the surface, and which we know of
only by reasoning ; then the Kooio
or dawn of life ; then the Palaeozoic
or ancient life period ; then the Mes
ozoic and the Cainozoic or pciiod of
recent life. The ago of coat began
about the end of the Palaeozoic
period, and therefore about the
middle of tho world's history At
the beginning of this period was the
epoch of the induction of animnllifc.
"Wc have glimpses of both marine
vegetation and traces of the remains
of rhizopods, allied to the sponge
family in the shape of calcareous
reefs thousands of feet in thickness.
At this time the land was an arid
waste, without a Bign of life. The
water was shallow and warm. The
original heat had 'not' driccb but of
the earth's crust. The air was thick
and moist. The sky warf covered
with dense clpuds, and the sun was
probably never seen. This was the
condition of the eaith in the Eozoic
age when the foundation of all the
continents were laid. The lectin cr
then went on to describe the time of
formation of the sciics of rocks
which intei vencd between this peiiod
nnd the Coal Age, illustrating his
remarks by a geological map of the
United States. Tho coal measures
occupied a ccntial position in the
vast aica of North America, though
more to tho East, thus locating the
manufacturing districts in that di
icction, while the agricultural and
mining districts were towards the
Then he gave clear and necessarily
brief descriptions of the animal life
at the beginning of that age. The
trilobite, a crustacean like the crab
or lobster, tho orthoccros (straight
horn) allied' to the nautilus, and
sometimes having a 6hcll 15 feet
long. The oldest known fish (gano
id) came in in the Devonian ago,
but was more like a shark thaa a
common fish. It had a higher or
more generalized typo of structure
than the common fish, and was cov
ered with a thick coat of enamel,
and often reached a length of SO or
40 feet. (This is an example of the
fact thot tho simpler types of life did
not always come into cxibtcncc flrat.)
Coal is nearly pine carbon, and is
almost entirely derived from the re
mains of vegetation. Lignite (i.e.,
a preserved tico) bituminous (ordi
nary) coal, authiacite (stone coal)
arc the chief varieties.
, Still it if not to lie supposed that
all coal was formed at this peiiod
(the coal ngc) ; sonic was formed
cailicr and some later, but the great
est portion was formed at this time.
For instance ; the coal on tho west
coabt was formed at u later period,
and is not so good as coal from the
East. Nine bundled and niiicty-nino
thousandths of the coal known is
bituminous. This attain 'is of two
kinds, caking timl iioiwmkiug, Tlio
former is of most consequence the
smelter. After describing tho other
kinds of coal the lecturer piocecdcd
to say, coal occurs in beds or masses.
One at Pottsvillc Pcnn, is 30 feet
thick. Thcro is always a mass of
lire-clay" below a coal bciL On the
roof or substance above tho coal bed
much of its value depends, because,
according to its solidity, so tho mine
can be easily worked or not. Beds
of coal vaiy much in pm ity, and tu c
always found intor-stiatiflcd with
slialc and carbonaceous slate resem
bling coal in color.
The fii c-ulay below was tho origi
nal soil in which the coal trees grew.
Wc still find their roots there (stig
inaria.) The Noifolk Island pine
(seen here) corresponds most to the
trees of the Coal Ago. Chief
amongst these trees were Sigillaria,
something like a pine ticc without
branches, height GO or 70 feet, leaves
dropping off left scars on tiunk in
perpendicular columns; the roots
biiurcatcd. An axe would bury it
self in tho trunk, as only one quar
ter of the truuk was solid the
centre. This tree is an example of
the progress of science. At first,
its roots, trunks, leaves and fruit
were all supposed to bo of different
origin ; now they were referred to
the one source. The Calamite, a
gigantic scouring rush; ferns; the
opidodendron, a gigantic elub-moBs,
were next mentioned. The coal
which the decay of this vegetation
gave rise to was only about one
twelfth of the volume of the oiiginal
vegetation, so lhat'to produce a bed
of coal thirty feet thick, three bun
dled and sixty feet of vegetation
was required. 4 The lecturer then
explained the use ,of this luxuriant
vegetation at a peiiod when there
was no life. First, when the world
was in process of formation, all the
ocean, etc., was in the atmosphere.
The steam first condensed as the
earth grew cooler and formed the
water of thcioccan. Then the vari
ous gases condensed and made the
ocean salt. This relieved the at
mosphcic of everything but the car
bonic acid gas, so fatal to animal,
but so necessary to vegetable life.
This luxuriant vegetation then came
into existence and relieved the at
mosphere of that, so that the world
was fitted for the reception of ani
mal life which was not possible even
for reptiles till that age was over.
The whole scheme of this earth's
history has been planned by an in
telligent being, as Job says, ' Speak
to the earth and it shall teach thee."
The lecturer then concluded amid
rounds of applause. Owing to the
bhort notice tnc audience was com

Government, supplying the chains

as a mooring buoy in the channel at!

painted and rc-coppcied at their ex
pense. A vandal was lately down
shooting in that neighborhood, and,
seeing nothing better, set to work to
shoot at this buoy and riddled the
copper so that worms will now be
able to destroy the buoj. He was
remonstrated with, lriit the language
of his answer we refrain from re
peating. Ix our yesterday's issue it was- re
ported that an accident had happen
ed to Mr. W. W. Hall and daughter.
This was iuscitcd by the en or of a
compositor! The following is the
coricct account: On Monday after
noon, about 4 o'clock, an accident
happened to Mrs. "W. W. Hall'ancl
daughter, which might have proved
fatal. They were out diiving along
King street when a passing team
frightened their hoises. It ran away

opposite Lack's. Mis. Hall lcceiv
