life in the Later geological
Was the subject of Prof. Hitch
cock's fourth lectin c in the Lyceum.
lie gave a short account of the for
umtion of petroleum. The theory is
that it is formed by the compression
of gases under the layer of sand
stone, which is always found when
boring for this substance. Then he
touched on the subject piopcr of the
.evening. Lift; is divided into old
and new. The old life is that found
in Palaeozoic nnd cm Her times.
From the close of the carboniferous
epoch is dated the commencement
of the new life. The change in at
mospheric conditions caused by the
Coal Age made this change in the
life. . Previous to that there were no
reptiles ; immediately following that
was the Age of Reptiles. There was
ti complete Falaeontological break at
this time. No species seems to have
crossed that break. This was the
time of the formation of the enor
mous beds of gypsum, rock-salt and
other salts. The lecturer then des
cribed an illustration of life in this
early (Jurassic) period. In the fore
ground were the pandnnus, cycads,
pines ; these were) the forms of vege
table life in that age. Coral islands
Were numerous then. Animal h'fc
was repieseuted by n true bird and
n cold-blooded reptile bat (the ptero
dactyl.) Other animals not repre
sented in the illustration were the
icthyosaurus, the plesiosaurus, nnd
the different vaiietics of tlinosauri
nus. At this Period we date the
foot-marks found in the Connecticut
River sand-stone. They were first
called bird tracks, and were discov
ered by his father half a century
ngo. The lectuic was hero illustrat
ed by drawings of some of the rocks
with these marks on them. One kind
was supposed to have been made by
gigantic frogs the size of our present
oxen. A sheet giving a repre
sentation of seven foot-prints of a
bird discovered by his father was
shown next, but at that time no one
would believe that any bird had ever
existed which could make foot-prints
eighteen inches long.. But shortly
after English missionaries. sent home
to England bones of a g'gnntic bird.
From theso Prof. Owen reconstruct
ed a bird much larger tlinn an os
trich, of which a picture was shown.
Since then whole skeletons of these
birds had been found in Madagascar
and New Zealand.
There arc 1G0 or 170 different
kinds of foot-marks in this sand
stone. Some of them showed not
only three toes but- a fourth or
hinder toe, nnd also marks as if
nt tde by a tail. dragging in the mud.
""'.Tiiesc belougcd to the dinosaurus, a
cltiSfhalf-way between reptiles ami
blrrsA.Soino of the marks showed
the presence of two hind feet, shap
o.l like those of the present kan
garoo, with marks also of two fore
feet nnd n tall ; this showed where
the tuiimnl had stopped nnd sat
down. The marks made by birds
showed that tjicy took long steps,
while the repiiles look short ones.
The true bird found in this age had
nt lirst been mistaken for a reptile,
but remains found in Bavaria proved
it to have been a bird. It differed in
many ropects from modern birds.
Its,, icak had notched teeth. Its tnil
was composed of eighteen joints,
with a pair of feathers to each joint,
nnd on the shoulder of the wing
were two fingers. The rertebra; were
ike those of a fish biconcave. A
picture of tlia head of an iethyosau
;nia or fish-lizard was then shown.
This animal was often SO feet long,
Its mot remarkable peculiarity was
: : T
to have bony divisions in it to sup
'port the soil poition.
Though no leptilu now exists over
2o feet in length, nnd only ha f a
dozen kinds over 16 feet, yet in this
ago in Great Britain alone there
were a dozen kinds over GO feet in
length, nnd in America theie were
lit" lenst 200 kinds of immense sizes-,
one of them found in Colorado be
ing over 100 feet long.
Next to the Age of Reptiles came
the Ago of Mammals, A represen
tative type of tills age was the Cory
phodon. It was partly carnivorous
and liartlv herbivorous. It united
in itself qualities pertaining to the
t e.t r, rodents, ami pachyderms. It
as n nondescript nnd didn't cones
pond to anything now living. An
illustration of life nt this peiiod was
then shown nnd described. .The
climate was wm in temperate. The
largo trees of California were veiy
abundant nt this period, being found
all over America, and afterwards in
Europe and Asia. The cedars of
Lebanon were of this same kind.
Tilts was to be accounted for by the
fact that tho Icc-nge, occurring
shortly nfter this, had driven all
these trees out southward, and then
the warm temperate climate not ic
turiiing after the ice-age was over,
thec trees were found isolated in
California and Syiin, us they arc at
this day. All the animals of this
period, found in certain parts of
America, were land animals. The
horse and the camel were nntives of
America in this age, nnd piobnbly'
proceeded from America to the rest
of the world, but the species seemed
to have died out, for now all those
found in America even the mus
tangs were descendants of those
introduced n few hundred years ago.
A series of horses ran through this
period and this fact is one of the
points iclicd on in the theory of
evolution. Tho oldest was of the
size of a fox; the next,- of a sheep;
the third, of a Shetland pony; and
the fouith, of the present horse. The
first ones havo fivo toes, and then
the following ones had throe toes.
Tho middle toe increased tho
others disappeared. Now . horses
have only one toe of any use but the
skeleton of a horse's foot shows the
Rudiments of two other toes. The
lecture here showed that a belief in
tho theory of evolution is neither
atheistic nor antichristian if we
believe with it that it was God's
plan. . Ho quoted from the Bible in
support of this view. . Tho lecturer
then alluded to the gigantic sloths
and armadillos found those days in
South America and the leeture

to us, being1 'The Geological History

Ox Thursday night a very large,
turtle was caught off Waikiki by Mr.
J. T. Waterhouse and his nephew,
Mr. W. Dimond. Its live weight
was 1.10 pounds. It was on view
yesterday morning at their Queen
street store, and was afterwards giv

ple of how sailors arc imposed on,
suppressing only the names. To one
month's board, $80 ; 2 extra dinners

place nnyonc can charge such out
rageous prices for that class of en

Mk. Eckart's Coronation Lottery
will be di awn to-night at Mr. Nolte's
Beave'r' Saloon, at 7 o'clock, sharp.
The drawing, which took place be
fore, wns informal through an un
avoidable accident, but every care
will Jie taken that this one will be
carried out properly. We believe
only about 30 tickets arc still un
sold. We again draw our reader's atten
tion to the miction sale room to-night
by Mr. E. P. Adams, of valuable
oil paintings, chromos, panels, etc.
The variety of subject and quality is
of such wide range that they will suit

to add to the adornment of his

Ox Thursday night another plea
sant little surprise party took place.
The happy recipient in this case was
Mr. W. II. Schmidt, of Hatkfeld &
Co. The party invaded his house
without the slightest warning, nnd
soon everything was ready for a joy
ous dance. The baud furnished the
music, uud dancing was kept up till
1 p. m. A splendid supper closed
It was generally supposed that
when the Coronation was over the
opposition Press would find them
selves in difficulties to fill their col
umns with reading matter. The
shoe seems to pinch on the other
foot, however, lor it is the Govern
ment organ that finds itself in such
straits, for want of reading matter,
that it lias to fill a part of its column's
daily witli reprint matter from the
columns Of other local papers.
A. W. Peikce & Co. announce in
our columns that they have sperm
oil for sale, the product of n monster
sperm whale. This whale was
caught by the Louisa a few dayd
ago, and 14(i barrels of oil were ob
tained from her. To the uninitiated
in whaling mysteries this btntciueut
may not convoy any meaning, but an
'old, experienced whaler assures us
that a sixty-barrel sperm whnie is a
good one, a seventy barrel sperm
whale is a large one, nnd that a one
hundred barrel whale ib tho largest
lie had ever seen or known of.
Right whales sometimes produce ns
much us 1-10 barrels.
