They were living junecfully and .hap

the shock to her httihand that It almost

The Arctlo Expedition
Mr. Amerleus Symmcs, ol this city, has
Just received a lelter troui Captain N.tres,
of Her Majesty's steamer, the Aleit,
i which was written from Disco, 'Jreenland,
I July IMh. The ALtI.U should ' e under-
stotnl, Is one of the ships sent out 'or the
exploration ot the Arctlo regions, and
this letter Is tne last written by Capt.
Nares iKl'ore departing from ulsco on his
northward travels, ll is theieloiea very

, ply to a communication -cnt to him by
Mr. Syiuine'. lu regard to the theory that
the earth ! hollow, ciitertaiiied by the
late (.'apt. Juo. Clove Symuies, ami the
writer assures Mr. ii. that ehuuld he "Ixj

Tliu expedition reached llsco on the
Otli of July and remained therein making
ilual pa-paratiou until the 10ih, the day
on which this letter was written. Here
the Alert took oi. a supply of provision
and Jortj or tiny Greenland sledge dogs.
The Alert lias Ixrcu accompanied by the
two steamers Discovery and Valorous,

to llnd its Way to the pole. lUeord will

can be. The Licovery will accompany,
or has accompanied, tliu Alert to the
North side of Lady Kraukllu .Strait.
The former vessel will then press on
alone northward, lauding deposits and
building cairns with records at intervals
or sixty miles. Tins surest way
of reaching the Pole, in Captain
Nares' opinion, is to rl-k failure by push

Alert will most probably winter iu SOde
