RUSSIA'S NEW SHIP CANAL.
Tho Russian Ghip cannl from St.
Petersburg to the sea was formally
opened May 27th with approptialo
and imposing ceieraonics. The Km
peror and the Empress, the diploma
tic corps, the principal State mag
nates and u largo crowd of citizens
were present at the ceremony. After
tho ceremony the Emperor and Em
press proceeded to Cronstndt and In
spected the frigate Skobeleff and re
viewed the squadron, which per
formed various evolutions. They
then returned to the Peterhof Palace.
Work on this ship canal was begun
in 1878. It extends from St. Pe
tersburg to Cronstadt. Its total
length is 17$ English miles, with
greatest width 350 feet, diminishing,
to 220 feet, and navigable for ves
sels drawing 20 feet of water. The
force employed upon its construc
tion embraced 3,500 men, 13 dredg
ing machines, 3 locomotives, with
230 cars, 80 lighters and barges, 12
steam tugs and 7 stationary engines,
and its total cost to the Government
was about 89,000,000, or 8500,000
per mile. "When the Nova river is
free from ice (which is generally by
Slay), vessels can proceed ditectly
fiom the Gulf of Finland to St Pe
tersburg, instead of discharging or
taking their catgo at Cronstadt, as
LATEST MARVEL OF PH0T0-
The scientific photographois have
accomplished a wonderful thing.
They have succeeded in producing
an actual poitrait of the man who
exists and whom no man ever saw.
The assertion is not as fanciful as it
seems. In the last issue of Science
appear four portraits illustrating
what has been accomplished. The
method of composit photographers,
devised originally by Francis Gac
ton, is simply this : Given a number of
men or woman, shadowy photo
graphs of each arc taken, and, from
all these shadows blended, is pro
duced a face. It is the face of no
one of those who sat, but is the face
of a human being whose countenance
expresses all their traits. This is
the theory of tho photographer.
The face produced bears out the
idea. It is a clearly defined counte
nance, wit an expression of its own.
It is something striking and fasci
nating. In one of the photographs
printed, twelve mathematicians have
their faces blended in a new counte
nance. It is a typical mathemati
cian. Sixteen naturalists' faces
form one, those of thirty-one paint
ers, another. There is a wonderful
resemblance between the two faces
IRRIGATION IN EGYPT. .
The ancient wealth of Egypt lias
ever been in its crop of corn. As
surely as the seasons come round, so
surely has the Nile risen year by
year. From the earliest time the
Valley of the Nile has been divided
by earthen embankments into a suc
cession of great Hats, measuring
occasionally as much as 100,000
acres. The rising flood is diverted
by a series of short canals into these
flats, where the water stands two or
three feet deep until it has soaked
the soil and deposited its rich allu
vial mud. By this time the Nile has
subsided. . The drying mud is rudely
plowed and sown, and four or five
months after the crop is reaped. No
rain has fallen on it, but the soil has
been sulllciently saturated to require
no further watering. A rich crop is
produced, but by this system only
one crop in the year, and during the
Summer months, when, from its lati
tude and temperature, one might
expect Egypt to be yielding subtro
pical fruits, the empty lieltls lie
baked and parched. Muhammed Ali
Pasha, whose genius and energy
created modern Egypt, soon recog
nized that more might bo obtained
out of the soil than this one crop of
wheat or beans. Ho set to work,
therefore, in lower Egypt to deepen
the canals, bo that they should flow
in low as well as high Nile. His
people were not long in discovering
the benefits this conferred on them.
Pumps and watcrwheels soon lined
the banks of tho canals. Egypt be
came known as a cotton-producing
country, and during tho American
civil war, twenty years ago, wealth
poured into it. But this new system
was a vastly more complicated one
that that which it superseded. To
suit the convenience of wealthy men
numerous canals were cut, without
system or arrangement. Complaints
soon began that tho crops were
deteriorating, that the soil was being
exhausted no longer replenished by
lying two months a year under
muddy water. In many plnees a
salt efforesccne appeared on tho sur
face, fatal to vegetation. In high
Nile and low Nile there was abun
dance of water for all, but in low
Nile, just when the cotton crop
wanted it most, thcro was least to be
had, and then tho peasant's poor
little patch had every chance of be
coming withered, while tho Pasha's
broad acres were flourishing. Worst
of all, this great network of canals
was yearly filled with Kile "deposft
which had yearly to be removed,
and an unpaid army of 00,000 pea
sants was employed for about half
of every year effecting tho necessary
clearances. In tho long, narrow
valley of Upper Egypt, except in
one portion, the old Pharaoio system
of irrigation still prevails, and there
the Egyptian has little to learn. In
the delta the new cultivation with
perennial hrigatlon is practised, and
in this, the richest part of the
country, Lord Dufferin soon saw the
gravest reasons for anxiety. A
system had been created which the
people did not understand. Ignor
ance of the most ordinary rules of
engineering, indolcuco and corrup
tion were fast destroying the coun
try. Nineteenth Century.
If any proof were needed how
great a hold the Bible has on the
English people it would have been
given this week by the extraordi
nary struggle for early copies of the
Revised Version of the Old Testa
ment which were issued from the
Paternoster-row warehouse of the
Clarendon Press at midnight, and
the, large sums offered for early
copies. The Press, nevertheless,
managed to "preserve secrecy till the
appointed time, although no less
than live thousand hands were em
ployed in binding, and a million
copies Mere packed for transmission
to America alone. Tho work of
Revision occupied, in all, sixteen
years, and tho New Version has been
received with consideiablc favor.
The Revisers hnvo endeavored, while
dcpai ting from the old dictum as
little as possible, to give the. exact
meaning in those passages in which
the translation was notoriously far
from the original. Archaic and dis
used words have also been sparingly
eliminated. "Hell" in the Author
ized Version lias usually been re
placed bj' "pit," "grave," or
"slieol" itself, the word for the
Hebrew Hades. London Home
