The Sun and Its Glory.
The recent ' rnagnlficpnt
auroral display in the east Las
caused mucb atlmiriftg) com
mentivnd stimulated intpj-estin
tlie coming eclipse of tlvo sun.
Tliis takes place on tlie l2th of
December.' : It is total,' and
will btf visible to best, rulyan
tage in India,- Java and Aus
tralia. . lu referring ' U this
sulrject the, New Yoik Times
-ay the English expedition,
under Mr. Lockyer, baa alread y
sret sail in the Mi.zipoie, vbicli
ship, as we learn', touched at
Malta some days ago; ilpvery
thulg'tbiit' Toretbo'ugfit' Vr "e)c
perience "oould suggest ha
lieen provided to attain favora
ble results. The thief thing
aimed at is, as most readers
are aware, to determine the
nature of the sun's corona; or
more strictly, to verify the con
clusion generally admitted to
have beeirreached last August.
To accomplish this, instru
ments of the highest perfection
so far known will be used, and
the various tests will, it is
hoped, correct and aflirm each
other. In this way tGe teles
cope, the spectroscope and the
telegraphic camera will be em
ployed, and advantages gained
from their combined ohserva
tion that could not pos-ibly
arise from the single use of
either. -This . was grandly
.shown during the eclipso of
last August, when there Were
times at which each instrument
liil service not to be done by
the others, and in some service
of iue.-tiniable value. F.or
example, at the station of Mr.
Brothers, the photographer,
clouds swiftly obscurinpr the
nil . . . i
sun lor bade tne use or tlie
camera for almost the whole
time of totality. Yet there
were just eleven seconds of
that period of aba. .lute clear
ness and in eight of those
seconds the finest picture of the
corona that exists was taken.
It is sometimes asked what
good will it do us to know the
precise nature of the sun's
corona? The question is o(
course a foolish one, but s-till,
in this practical age, there may
be profit in answ ering it. One
set of beneGts, we may observe,
then to begin with, is incident
al. The hill-climber at Potosi,
grasping a bush to help his as
cent, laid baie the virgin silver
beneath. Professor Young, in
making coronal observations,
hit on something far more
splendid than any ore that
ever "supplicating shone, lie
discovered a fact, (or what is
held by able scientists to be a
fact, and will soon, doubtless,
be put beyond dispute), about
the sun's atmosphere of pro
found interest and importance.
lie fouud, that is to say,
that the solar atmosphere is
composed, instead of the gases
that make up the atmosphere
of the earth, of the vapors of
our own wellknown terrestrial
metals. This, assuredly, is a
discovery of vast consequence,
and will, probably, apart from
its intrinsic moment, lead to
others of as yet but conjectural
worth. But the fact and Sir
John Ilerschel has pronounced
the evidence already obtained
to be decisive, that, the corona
is extraterrestrial, produced in
no wise by our own atmos
phere that it is a real solar
appendage, reaching at least a
million miles from the sun's
surface, is not to be easily over-1
estimated in its prospective
bearing ou the development ot
astronomical scieuce, and pro
bably, indeed, on the whole
arcana of nature. The estab
lishment of the fact' that cer
tain metals are common to
both sun and earth is interest
ing as suggesting a cotnmou
origin; nud the discovery first,
ot the veritable nature ot the
corona, next oi us snape, and
dually, as we may hope, of its
constituents, will be moment
ous in tho least degree as fur
nishing a fresh and totally un
paralleled cluoto the history,-
and possibly even to the des
tiny, of the whole g'dcreal sys
tem While ve should have been
glad had American astrono
mers been able to join in the
expeditions now under way,
the completeness of the ar
rangement made, and a knowl
edge of the inexpediency, nt
this time, of our astronomers
leaving the country, reconcile
us to the omission. It is fur
ther consolatory to know that
American astionomers first 'ob
served and announced the main
phenomena touching the cor
ona itself, their version of
which ji now .almost univers
ally accepted. We sbalHook
with interest for further Cor
roboration, since proofs on such
a point can hardly be too num
erous, and new ones can not be
had, after this eclipse, fr a
lonp" time. There is but one
total eclipse in 1872 that of
November 30 and this will
be so barely total that it be
gins and ends on the earth as
an annular one the moon at
those times not fully hiding
the, sun, even on the line' of
central eclipse. No eclipse
worth an expedition to observe
will take place thereafter un
til April 1G, 187-1, and we shall
have to wait until that time for
confirmation of the past, or
fresh date for the future. Un
der such circumstauces it is
gratifying to know that the
irrangemeuts for observing
the eclipse of next mouth are
of so complete a-chai acter, and
that, with former' atmospheric
conditions, the chief issues-in
debate regarding the corona

Worcester's English Dictionary.
We have received from
Messrs. Brewer" & Tilestnn, of
Boston, "A' Dictionary of the
English Language; by Joseph
E. . Worcester, LL. D.," in a
magnificent. q'iait volume of
i,85i priges.- .The first np
pearance of this work, ten
years ago,, was an era in Eng
It was tlie hrst English dic
tionary which had any claim to
be regarded a3 a presentation
of our entire mother tongue, as
it exists in the speech and lit
erature, of this century, as n
far.trAn(V apart from nil theo
ries and' devices for improving
it. In this point of view wel
comed heartily by scholars,
and through their infljencc
rapidly gained; favor among
the people, so that it became
almost at once the generally
acknowledged standard of correctness,-berth
in writing nnd
in speaking, both for tlie form
nnd for the meaning of words.
It has novy been Ions: enough
m use, by. tiiousaiids ot critical
miudu, to have beem tested
thoroughly at, every poiiit;'and
it is saying far less than might
be sustained to say that it has
fully maintained i's pre
eminence, A detailed review of such a
work is of -course impossible
here, nnd could only be under
taken properly' by one who
should carefully revise it for a
new edition; Such a revision
will-be needed nt a distant
day; for although' tliere is no
point in which the superiority
of this to every other English
dictionary is more unquestiona
ble than in its etymology; yet
the more careful and thorough
study of this' subject in late
years has created a demand f.-r
a still more scientific and ac
curate digest of the results nl
ready obtained. Many of the
etymologic here given1 are m
complete or unsatisfactory;
sortie, but very few, can be
positively called erroneous.
But the true' value of such an
etymological account of ciicb
word as can be L'iveir bv a

have been kept clearly in view.

But tho practical value of
such a 'work depends more
upon inner features than upon
its etymology. It is consulted,
in nineteen cases out of twentv.
to determine either the' mean

There is mthing with which it
can fairly bo compared)- for
there is no other kilow'n in this
country approaching it in com-
prehensiveness, which has arty
claim1 to authority . in tliese respects.-
Without opening in1
this paper a controversy which
can, at best, be interesting t'
but a small part of its readers
it is fair to say that a diction
ary of. miy living-' language'
oupdit" rather to' represent what
it is, than what it tends to be
come; ought to be' a' conserva
tive power in it, rather than a
radical one. It is the business'
of the faithful lexic grapher
to report filets, and if lie-mixes1
up his own theories with his
report, he diminishes its value- '
and destroys its authority.
Di'. Worcester's aim has been1
to present the form of words,
both as written and av spoken,.
according to tlie' preponder
ance of usage among the best'
writers and speakers;'- and
where that usage is divided, to'
say so without attempting- to-
turn t lie scale. Tins work he
has done in comparably bet
