Oeolctc Theories of the Earth's Interior.
Various theories have been from time io
time advanced as to the interior condition
of the globe, many of them of a purely
fanciful character. The great
Keppler, for instance, in seeking
to account for ebb and flow of the
ocean tides, depicted the earth as a living
monster, the earth-animal, whose whale
like mode of breathing occasioned the rise
and fall of the ocean in recurring periods
of sleeping and walking, dependant on
solar time. He even in his flig its of fancy,
attributed to this earth-animal the possession
of a soul, having the faculties of
memory and imagination. Another great
astronomer, Halley, was opposed to the
idea of the globe being solid, "regarding it
as more worthy of the creator that the
earth, like a house of several stories,
should be inhibited both without and within."
For light, too, in the hollow sphere,
he though provisions might in some measure
be be contrived. So recently, indeed,
as within the last 150 years equally singular
notions have been entertained regarding
the earth's interior. Sir John Leslie,
like Halley, conceived the .nucleus ot the
world to be a hollow sphere, but thought
it filled, not with inhabitants, but with an
assumed "imponderable matter, having
an enormous force of expansion." Other
scientists by degrees peopled this hollow
sphere where with plants and animals-two
small substerranean plants, named
Pluto and Proserpine, being supposed to
shed over this central world their dim and
mysterious light. Others supposed that
the central hir was rendered self-luminous
by compression and hence the planets
were not required. A certain Captain
Symmes, who lived in the present century,
was strongly conviced of the truth of Leslie's
theory. He held that near the North
Pole whence the polarlight emanates, was
an enormous opening "through which a
descent might be made into the hollow
sphere, and sent frequent and pressing invitations,
to A. Von Humboldt and Sir
Humphrey Davy to undertake this subterranean
Christine Xilsson's Husband.
The thunderbolt which iell upon Mme.
Kilsson on Wednesday last may easily be
imagined when her husband said to her:
"Ma petite Christine, you must now sell all
your property in America and England. I
have a plan which will render us immensely
rich :" and she replied: "Tues
fou, quelle idee !" Whereupon he jumped
up, seized both her wrists, and said:"
" Mad ! But look into vour looking-glass,
Christine: you are mad: your eyes are
staring out of your head. You must absolutely
try to get calm ; I'll send for the
doctor." Of course she could not then
doubt what had happened, all the more
that it was not the first time he had had a
similar attack. When they were in America,
suddenly an idee fixe occupied his
mind he could speak of nothing else ;
but then she kept him at home away from
everv possible excitement, pnd by great
care cured him. She trted again now.
Five days and live nights she never left
him. During all this time he never shut
an eye, speaking continually, quietly, not
excitedly, about the millions which lie was
certain to make. The worst is that the
disease is in the family, an uncle and a
cousin of his having died mad. But until
now, at least, M. Rou.eaud's folly is calm ;
he only insisted that his wife, under his
dictation, should write the whole night the
plan of his new bank. During the last
forty-eight hours not only he did not sleep,
but he neither ate nor drank, and no opiate
had any effect upon him. It may not
be amiss here to state that he never
touched Mme. Nilsson's money for anv
speculation in fact, he did not speculate
himself; he was a partner of an "agent de
change," and the remises brought to his
share from 4,000 to 6,000 a year. Mme.
Nilsson, when she married, and gave up
singing in France, had about 80,000 earned
in Europe and America, of which, however,
through unproductive speculations
she lost very nearly half. Not entirely,
because her American properties seem
now to revive ; any way, she has the income
of at least 40000. Her husband was
transferred to the house of Dr. Gouion, in
whoso house alone during last week four
boursicrs were brought. M. Rouzeaud, although
quite ignorant of the place where
ho is kept, and continually complaining
that not letting him come out makes him
lose a fortune, is, according to the testimony
of the doctor, much bettor.
A desperado named Juan Garcia was
killed by officers near San Antonio, Texas.
