Scientific AcIiicTemcBts ol Iast
The year which has just ended will perhaps be ti-
membertd longest as that in wmcn tnesrst rauroaa
was completed across1 this continent, and that in
which the Sues Canal extended the Mediterranean
Sea eastward to India : chances which, toeether with
the new line of Pacific Mail steaiuthips from the Gol
den (late to China, hare practically shortened by
one-half the arerace time required for a journey
around the. -world. But there are other proofs of real
progress in the world, which may one day be regar
ded as not fnferior to these, although the noise they
make at their coming is as nothing beside the accla
mations with which Christendom has greeted the new
pathways open to trade. These are found in the sub
stantial additions which hare been made to human
knowledge in the domain of science ; the advances by
which the mind of man has pressed forward into
what bare always. been unknown realms.
Chief amonc these are doubtless the achievements
of the spectroscope, especially in the province of as
tronomical optics. It is bat a few years since this in
strument of research came into the hands of iavesti-
rators t but it has already nroved itself seeond in im
portance only to the telescope ana the microscope, in
extendingxmr acquaintance witn the taws ut me uni
verse. Indeed, we may say that any one of these
three instruments alone, in the present state of
science would afford not a tithe or toe resources
which the combined battery of the three, assisting
one another, places fn the hands of aggressive intel
lects, laying siege to that " workshop of nature "
which Goethe declared to be " forever inacessibte."
There aresomeresultsof spectroscopic investigation,
achieved during the last year, which pass beyond all
the boldest anticipations even or Us inventors. L'tt-
haps the most brilliant of them is the jmethod of de
termining the "proper motions ot tne stars, even
when they are in a right line to or from our snn. The
spectrum formed by a prism, dispersing the rays of
light, is the result ol the law mat inese rays are re
fracted more or less, accoraing to the length ol the
" wares" of which they consist. Now, if a star is
moving away from us or toward us in space, a mathe
matician can calculate how much any-given ray, lo
cated on the spectrum, for instance, by any or the
dark lines or rraunhorer, will be dispatched thereDy.
It is found, in fact, that in a number of the fixed
stars the dark lines which -indicate the presence, of
the incandescent vapor of hydrogen or of iron are
actually displaced, but always uniformly and in a de
gree which Indicates hy calculation ine direction ana
rate or motion ol the stars, io appreciate tne impor
tance of this discovery it must be remembered that.

possibly be detected, unless by observations continued
long enough to establish a progressive and regular
gain or loss in brightness of each star observed ; that
is to say, continued tor many thousands or years.
The rery recent discovery also made by the spec
troscope of the identity of the Aurora Borealis with
the zodiacal fight, and of both with the corona sur
rounding the sun when totally eclipsed, is one which
as yet, indeed, is a stumbling block to astronomers.
.bat which seems to lead them to the very verge of
some wonderful revelation, ror it is always the most
mysterious facts, the most unaccountable observa

known is sure to prove only an instance of some
greater law waiting to disclose lUeu.
Indeed, the activity with which new lacts eoncern
ing the solar system hare been collected during the
last year Is itself one or the wonders or science, it is
but a short time. since the astronomy of our own sys
tem was regarded as complete in outline, and only to
be filled up by painful and abstract researches perfect
ing our knowledge or the several bodies In detail,
which could have no interest for the general reader.
But now the whole intelligent world is filled with the
renown'of inquiries into the structure of the sun, the
pastbistory of its system, the storm in its atmosphere,
the nature of its nebulous appendage, and even into
the exact figures of its distance from the earth a

The other scieoces have been no less active of late.
although some of them havo attained only results of
less general interest. In chemistry there has been
great progress made in improving the nomenclature,
and in the methods of exact analysis. Many of its
new practical applications, tuo, have been most prom
ising r bono more so than the improvements in the
manufacture of iron and steel from the ore, and in ob
taining illuminating gas. In zoology and palaeontol
ogy there has been more zeal shown in uermany than
here ; and, although there have been no new works
forming att era fn these sciences, yet an era in popu
lar understanding and lore of them has certainly been
brought about in that country, where the peoplegath

The close of the year has been marked by making
rnblio the results of an expedition, sent nut by the
British Government, to eiplore, by !redging, the
depths of the sea. This attempt has been far more
successful than its projectors dared to hope; and has
resulted in proving the existence of life in a great va
riety of forms at depths which were snpposed to lie
demonstrably an utter waste. Eight, at least, of the
forms found in great depths are species of which were
known aa tertiary fossils, but were supposed to bare
been extinct for thousands of ages. Wehaverecentiy

Free Trade vs. Protecllon Iu France.
The ten rears' commercial convention between
Enzland and' France, of which the late Mr. Cobden
and M. Michel'Chevalier were the chief negotiators,
approaches its term of completion. After 1870 tbe
treaty becomes terminable by a year's' notice from
either side, and a powerful agitation is at present go
ing forward in France, by one party for its renewal,
and bv another for its abrogation. Tbe northern
provinces of Flanders, Alsace and Normandy, repre
sented by their industrial centres oi uue ana noucn,
embody tbe Protectionist side of the descuiliun,
while Bordeaux, Lyons, Marseilles, and to some ex
tent Paris, speak on behalf or the Free Trade Party in
tho Southern and Central Departments. The Com
mission to which the Government bos delegated the
task of examining 'the question, snspected by tbe dis
contented manufacturers to be a mere'device for in
definitely postponmcnt of actiod upon it, and they are
t present demanding (hat the inquiry shall Id of a par
liamentary, not ;f an administrative origin. Keep
ing clear of the mass of contradictory figures which
the heat of discussion bos evoked, we may present a
"brief resume of the case -on both sides, in so far as it
is borne out by official and unchallenged reports.
The complaints of the, Protectionists relate chiefly
to four or fire branches' of national industry, and
their position will be best understood by seleetiug oue
of these for examination. The fibres of flax and
hemp are well-known products (if France, -and at a
very early period of her history their manufacture,! fn
tered largely into the domestic employments of the peo-
pleand laid tbe roundsiion oi maiiasiewnicunRs caaae :
their consumption of linen goods more extensive than i
that of any other nation in- Europe. The' patronage ;
of the First Empire stimulated a Frenchman named
Girard to originate an invention for applying machin
ery to the spinning of these fibres. With the fall of
Napoleon tbe development of the new industry was
arrested. The invention was taken up in England
and readily perfected. Linen products were so rigidly
protected that foreign competition was excluded,
while the export of tbe newly adspted machines was
forbidden under very heavy penalties. The French
manufacturer jjas unableto abtain from succeeding
la that tbe growth of , tie trade rwas slow and difficult.
When the treaty of I860 came Into operation its pros
perity was but partially secured, and the adverse
effect of foreign competition was quickly felt.
Doringihe first year the imports of lines yarns front
Eogland bad, increased fourfold, and daring Ibe se
cond was nearly six1 times the am"unt it had been
previously, while in 1S67 the f i.n competitor suc
ceeded in jntrodueing 1,700,000 k-i rammes.against
tbe 1 17,000 with" whieh he had started in lgSOf 'For
reasons snch aa these, the.representativei of this
branch of trade demand that a more protective ten
dency should be given to existing tariffs, having a re
gard to the respective resources of tbe two countries,
and to the future of a Iranch of commerce which is
"one of the fairest flowers of the industrial erosjn of
France." - t
The Free Traders, on tbe other hand, assert that
the alleged losses to French commerce have been of
a local and partial character, while the gain to1 the
whole country baa been enormous. The , population
engaged In tbe four or five trades who complain, is
stated to be only one-sixth of tie entire nation.' Ly- I
eras comes forward with statistics to show that her ex
ports of plain silk fabrics, which in 1S57, only amount
ted to 170,000,000 francs, ( $34,000,000 in gold.) had
risen in IS5S to 320,1100,000 francs, (fM.VOQ.ogo In
gold,) and that the greater part of this amount was
absorbed by England either for herself or America.

and certain distress orce-more attack the rural popu
lation of the South, That, sinco tbe conclusion el
the treaty, the total -value of imports has increased
more rapidly than that of exports, is seised upon as
an argument by the Protectionists; hat to this thef
Free Traders reply by showing that as regards Eng
land the total exports of tbe products of the' eight
principal branches of manufacture amounted in 1S67
to I'Ji.ouu.uuu tn gold, while tbe Imports received on

takes from England one-sixth of her total imports,
and sends her one-third of her total exports. In the

with much vigor, we may expect some interesting
facts to be elicited, baving a direet bearing upon'
