richest and most populous of tho
island, the birthplace of Aguinaldd
and the , rclxMlion, the insurgent
troop? were still intget, and, in fact,
had been stivngthercd by accessions
from the noi-th. and, as regards
equijr.aolit, disci pMne and eohos-'ion.
were equal,, if not superior, to' any
that had beon raised in support of
'the insurgent cause. '
General Otis committed the task
of the destruction and dispersion of
the forces within this district to two
expeditionary brigades, commanded
respectively by Brigadier Generals
Wheaton and Sihwan. In and about
'the two towns of Ikiccor and Inius.
in Xorthetn Cavite, there were and
ilnug had been insurtrent h.oiiies of
consi.li'rable size, some of which had
actually boseired our garrisons in
those towns. These insurgent bodies
General Wheatcn's command at
tacked and completely routed on
January 7th last.
The duty of suppressino1 the Insur
gent troops in the remainder of the
four provinces and of restoring, if
practicable, pence and order therein,
fell to the lot of General Schwai.'s
brigade. In the course of its cam
paign his troops covered (i.(l miles,
fought thirty three combats .inul es
tablished permanent garii.-.ons in
twenty-one towns vinhin this district.
It set out on. January 4tl( and its
work was practically thiishtwt on
February Sth. Not that all hostili
ties had ceaaed; on the. c.ontiury,
our troops have had and. still have
frequently coiifhels with' the robber
bands that wore formed from the
disintegrated insurgent arinic;;, and
emerged periodically from thili; hid
ing places in mountain and thhkets
to pounce upon inadequately guarded
wagon trains and small parties;
But concert of ac tion or cooperation
save on U very limited scaio was end
ed on the latter date; . the control
exercised by the insurgent leaders,
except over their small immediate
following, was minimized, .and . their
power for mischief materially re
duced, if not wholly brol-.i'ii.
In the principal towns or centers
of trade and municipal government,
military forces, generally Lultalior.s.
have been placed. These forces
operate within their spheres under
their Majors for the most part

rank in the regulars and when
ever necessary to eo-operate under
their Colonels, for the battalions of

On the whole, the outlook for the
pacification of this district anjl other
parts of Luzon is favorable. In their
conflicts with . our trooj $ the La
droncs are universally worsted,
Their defeats will become uiore se
rious as our troops gain the confi
dence of the intelligent and property
owning class; and when the ialter be
come unwilling to submit to the
robbers' exactions and become willing
to guide our troops to their retreats
their doom, will be sealed. To accom

A beautiful experiment going far to
explain . thd .nature of the aurora
(ljori'ulis. of noi-thern lights, is iles
irihedby 1'rof. Trowbridge. . A liire
vacuum glass tube, 3 feet .8 inches,
was plained lienr the Crookc's. tube
in the! id-li. room. The vneuum tube
was Idled v. ith a roseate light, which
wavered liked the; northern lights
when the C moke's tube was emitting
the X rays. If thb linger was
'brought near the. glass walls of the
'ylinder a s.t ream of light apparent
ly emanated from a point ou the in
,side wall of the cylinder, The ..hand
thus had ghostly sti ermers, giving
an image of it, jilt hough the hand it
self was invisible. These banners of
light could be diverted in any direc
tion by the hand or by any conduc
ting body brought near, and gave a
vivid conception' of how the stream
ing of the aurora can ;bc brought
about bt thr flitting r.l conducting
clouds or the drifting, of, moisture
laden strata, of air below ilie-rarefied
space in which the beams of the
northern light dart back and forth.
Both in the ease of the Crooke s tube
and the aurora these streamers are
produced by eleelrkul discharges
through rarefied air. ; The experi
ments show that-putsido the C'rodke's
tube there is a strong electrical at
traction and repulsion,' wliiei is only
revealed in darkness and in a cold,
lifolos, airless spate, such as exists
between us aud the. smn. Can we
not extend our thought from the
contemplation of this . laboratory
experiment to that of the iunneuse
