It ia quite certain that our present land was formerly the bod of the sea, and that continental masses onoo reared their forms where now rolls the "deep and dark blue ocean." Now, rightly estimating thia mighty power of the aqueous agents which incessant ly labor, to reduce the inequalities of the earth's aurface to a levol, it is easy to soo that, if they went on unopposed, they would "clear away and spread over the bed of the ocean all our present ex is ting continents and islands, " and, in deed, they have been at work long enough to have, if unopposed, produc ed this very result. USES Or TUB VOLCANO. It is the earthquake and the volcano which place themselves in opposition to this destructive tendency; so that we may regard the igneous agents as in constant antagonism to the aqueous agents, the latter laboring incessantly to obliterate the land, while the former are equally active to restore it. What ara ineae igneous ageum, ana what is their source ? CKIVEIIMAL 8CDTEUBAMEAM Flltt It is a fact perfectly assured that, in proportion as wo descend into the earth, the heat augments, and the deep er we go the hotter the earth is fonnd to bo. This is proven by numberless observations that have been made not only of the temperature of air in mines, but in that of rocks and in the water issuing from them. Iu boring Artesian ells the water comes up hot, and the deeper the boring tbo hotter the water. In the famous well in Turis, at La Grenelle, the water rises from a depth of 1,794 feet, and its temperature is 82 degrees Fahrenboit, which ia almost that of the equator. The same thing appears in natural Lot springs, as, for instance, that of Arkansas, which is scalding hot, and ahowa a continuous temperature of 180 degrees. This in crease is estimated at about a degree of the thermometer additional warmth for every ninety feet additional denth- of liqnid fire, on w hich the continents and the land beneath the ocean contin ually are floating.

"Itbaabeuu computed," aays Hum boldt, "that during the earth quake of Lisbon on Novomber 1st, 1753, a por tion of the earth's surface four time greater than tuo extont of Europe was simultaneously shaken.

In like manner, the undulations of the game shock which last month con vulsed tbo coast of I'eru, manifested themselves in extrordinory tidal phe nomena along the shores of California, four thousaud miles distant, and in the waters that wash the far away Sand. wich Islands.

The look of discontent vanished for once, a the old folk wero delighted with a uen a mark of distinction, from one o very rich. On arriving at the mansion, the lady received them most kindiy, ami thus ad dressed them; ' I have set apart two rooms in my bouao, and so long as you attend to my wishes you will be allowed to remain lu re, and have everything needful for your comfort lint if you disobey any of my rules, you will bo immediately turned out and sent back to your mud cottage." . - '11 ank yon! thank you kindly, ma dam," responded the old uinu. "Never fear onr doing anything against your wishes, ma'am," added the old woman. "Very well," said the lady, "then you will Cud a borne here forlifo." Everything necessary for their com fort was provided, "and all went on well for some time. There waa oue thing that somehow puzzled them. , For several days there was placed on the dinner table a covered dish, which they were desired not to touch. "My lady desiroa me to aay that ev ery dish is at your service except that one," said the servant On buoIi a day, having nearly finish ed their hearty repast, tbo curiosity of the old woman was greatly excited as to the forbidden dish, and said to her Luwl and: "Whatcver can it be?" "Never mind," said the old man; "we've had capital dinner without it." "As the lady was doing us good, sho might a well let u taste every dish,'' said the old woman. ... r , ., - "Why yes, she urgbt as well done handsomely," rejoined the lulbband. ."There can bo no barm in lookiuif," continued the old woman: "the lady will never bo any the wiser for that." ' The old man was silent, and silence serves to give consent. Ho was almot a curious aa bis wife about thestrango dish. The temptation was strong, and the longer it waa parhed about, the more irresistible it becamo. ".She'll never know we have looked," replied the old woman, as she gently took hold of the cover, and very cau tiously raised it on one side, and there, stooped down to peep under. "Oh 1 oh I oh 1" exclaimed the tcrri Cod old woman, as she started back and upset the dish cover on the floor. Out jumped a mouse! The uproar roused the lady of the house, who, suspecting what was the matter, was quickly at the door. "What! is this the return you make for my kindness? You, who were so ready to blamo Adam and Eva for eat ing the foi bidden fruit, could not you obey my trilling request ? You have now forfeited the privilege I conferred upon you, and you must therefore leave my house immediately, and return to mud cottage.

Nino tenths of the sky was overcast, and wo eudeavored to feel aa resigned oa possi ble to our probable disappointment. Our object was to obtain a many pho tograph a could be taUn of the phe nomena during the three minutes tbny would last, aud iu order to do Ibis we bad practised with our machine, like soldiers with firearm. Dr. Frischo was charged with the preparation of tho plate, Dr. Zenker with putting the fclidt into the machine, Dr. Theile with drawing them out when they hod been exposed a sufficient time, whilu my business was in the tent With this division of labor we found it would be impossible to obtain six photograph iu the three minute. A the import ant moment approoehed, to our delight we saw, through a break in the cloud, tho disc of the sun partially covered by the moon. . T'j landscap around us assumed a strange hue, neither sun light or moonlight; the chemical color rays wre exceedingly weak. A a test we exposed a plate in the machine for fifteen second, and obtained A good impression of the cloud: aa tha disc of the un grew smaller, tha clouds opened out. The lut minute before the total eclipaa Arrived Dr. FriacliA And I crept into our tent our work bo gAn. Th first plat w a experimental ly exposed fir and ten second, in or der to be stir of tha right time. Ma- bomuied, our blAck servant, brought me the first slide Into the tent. I pre pared the plate and Anxiously watebod to what would appear. Just then my light went out; I rushed out of the tent with the plate in my band, And came back with a small oil lamp, which in case of accident, I bad placed on A table outr-ide. Eagerly I gaaeti on th plate; the dark bouter of the eun wa surrounded on one tide by peculiar protuberance, and oo the other wa a remarkable Lorn. . 'lite phenomena wer the Aame itt liotb picture. .
