Prof. Sillimaus Second Lecture. Professor SiUiman, in introducing his second lecture on Geology, said that the subject seemed to grow before bis ov r, mind, and that it was ut? terly impossible to do it any justice within so brief a cempass. He apologised for the desultory and .Unconnected mannor in which the prominent facts of Geology must be presented, as the time was ::,,< -?>.-.? for nr. orderly and complete di-cmion of them. The pressure nf the subject upon my own mind, said he. is thai of a '-wollen, ru.hing flood while there is but a mill-race outlet. The lecture of the last evening was closed with some account of the theory of an eminent Professor at Wt.ate! in Switzerland, concerning the transportation ot rocks among the Alps and other regions where tee prevailed by mean, of glaciers. He d.d not sup? pose that all transportation of great mmeral masses, which was to be see::, was caused m this way t but he believed that this was the true method of ac? counting for the phenomenon as it was exhibited am0Dg the Alps and other Alpine regions?and by Alpine regions he meant those in which the tops of the mountains reached the bight of perpetual .-now, which at the equator was about three miles, this distance diminishing as we go from the equator in either direction. 'friere [a one important-addition to this theory, which I nave not yet noticed'. I mean the trans? portation of bouldcr-stoncs, as they are called, by means of llorttiRjr ice. It is not at all necessary to draw u:>on tile imagination to understand this fact: for it is u matter of observation that ice i-land- of vail magnitude are frequently torn away from their beds and floated through Hudson's and Baffin's Bay to more southern regions. I have seen myself ice-islands floating through the ocean, towering from one hundred and fifty to two hun? dred feet above, the surface ef the sea; and a3 we know thai floating ice never shows above the sur? face niuro than one-eighth of its hulk, we may rea? sonably conclude that islands *?f sixteen hundred feel in thickness frequently float from the Arclic regions to more southern climes. It is easy to see then that these islands are easily capable of trans? porting immense loads of rocks, far more Heavy than the largest ships of war. In one instance Mr. Lyell observed a rock which must have weighed at least fifty thousand tons. It is obvious that when these islands float into warmer regions they must melt and drop their load ; thus the rocks are deposited in the bottom of the Southern seas which com? from the most Northern regions. These rnib^? transported thus; may be seen on* th'' West Coast of South America and at me island of Clii loe, and the process has long been goh-tg on, is now. and will !?e in progress forever. As an example of this, Prof. SiUiman exhibited a drawing of u re>ck of red felaspar ttranile. some fifteen feet in length and ten in breadth, testing on -even marble pUlars,- in an inclined position, the pillar at the lowest etui being much larger than the others, just as we may suppose one strong man to support the heavy end of it burden which it requires .-is ordinary men at the othwr end to up? hold. Now how is this position to be accounted for?since the country in that section is ull mar? ble ami there is no granite to be found there f and here I am happy to say that any of yuu in your next summer excursion may see this most beautiful object, since it is at New Salem, not far from New Bedford, where (.ov. .Jay once lived: you can -?asily craw! under it. If 1 may be allowed to sug? gest my own mode of accounting for it, I should say thai when that section of country was under tlw ocean, us it may be proved to have been at some time, the granite rock was transported thither by an iceberg, dropped to the bottom of the sea, and thus deposited upon the sand and mud which covered thu limestone rock, which was afterward worn away, and the pillars left standing. Thus this immense mass was laid down in the place where it is now found as gently as you would luy a buby in a cradle?for if it had come tumbling along like a torrent, it would have crushed every? thing before it. There is also an immense rock found poised upon a clifl at Land's find, near Corn? wall, in England, sw celebrated for its tin mines?so accurately poised that it is very common for trave? lers to visit it and to rock it upon its sustaining point with their hands: from this circumstance it is called the rocking rock. By frequent rocking, the point has become go worn that it cannot now be rocked as easily as before, and I found itditfictilt to move it with my shoulder. An English frigate a few years since anchored near that place and the crew, not being geologists, in a sailor's frolic could think of nothing better for their amusement than to tumble down this rock. The people about there cried shame open them for thus destroying an ob? ject of great and curious interest; and in their contrition the next tiling these sailors cbnld'do wus to get a capstt and hoist it up again, in New Brunswick, N. .1. and all along on the Cuts kill mountains may be found stones composed en? tirely of the pebbles und saial usually found upon the sea-beach?either cemented by their natural sediment or by actual crystalizatiun. Thus we prove that the mountains are raised from the sea. The diseoverie.. of Majwr Mitchell in Austria ulso contribute greatly AO this branch of the general subject. We find rocks of a singular composition near Newport R. 1?at a place called Purgatory ?where there is a fissure in the. rock, and large j pebbles of a yard in diameter are found, hard; flinty, rounded at the ends ami placed all in one direction, just like a fleet of ships at anchor?all their sterns in one direction, turned thus by the current ", and 1 Have no doubt this appearance was occasioned iu tie.* same way by a strong current ef thu ocean. It is a common feat "t" gallantry for yiutujmen to exhibit their agility by leaping across this chasm in the presence of those whe-e udnit ration they seek; and the place thus came to be called Purgatory?ami so it would be if thwy should lall into it. In Herefordshire, England, a great abundance ol such rooks may be found, containing must beautiful pebbles and looking much like a plum pudding petrified, whence, indeed, thry de? rive their name. We will now pass to the rocks which arc found lying upon the clay slate, called by a distinguished German Geologist, Werner, transition rocks, be? cause they are place.1 midway between the granite or primary rock and the -roondnry. They He the last ot the primary recks and continue to the old red sandstone, or as some say to the limestone un? der the coal. But this term had better be dis? carded, as it had reference-to the heretical doc- j trine that the earth was at first chaotic, and that it passed gtadualh to its present stat-. The general dhtaion of these rocks is into the Si? lurian and Cambrian from the reason that they pre vailed in those parts of Wales culled Cambria and Slluria. i hey were found there by the Romans when they tttst visited that country; and were ex? amined by an English Geologist, Hutchinson whom wc shaii soon have among us.: he ha- latelv investigated the Ural mountains, and the Ku-*ian Emperor caused a canal to be cut for his especial benefit in examining a certain locality : and I am glad to see tla-se eminent men of science visiting our country, i may say that 1 am the only sut vi vot of the first corps of geologists iti this country. Dr. Maclure, Prof. Cleveland, Dr. Mitchell, and one or two others with myself, were the first to cultivate this subject in the 1*. S , and its pro? gress has been rapid and delightful; and the sci? entific journal of which 1 have been the editor? and not being the atUKor I mav say it without van? ity?has been highly praised" bv Mr. Lvell and other eminent English geologists. I am -lad'to see the alacrity and the zeal with which the sub- j ject ?> prosecuted in this countrv. Already twenty out of the twenty-six States have ordered*-eolo-'i etil investigations, and when their contrib?riobs are all brought in. then a master mind will take .bold of aid digest them and bting them im'* one beautiful systematic whole. As regards the structure of the Cambrian rocks. which are some 12,000 feet thick, while the Silu? rian is 7,500, lean say but a few words. It is composed of slate, sandstone and limestone. 1 be fine slate used on houses is procured " trom these localities, though an equally good quality is begin? ning to be carried in Maine. 1 will proceed to a ! topic of interest, as indicating the first :rr;Press ot 1 xhl Creator's band in bringing things into life, and I rocks of our earth, upon this point always tell a triie story. Our histories may lie?or their au ? thors may err, and between their falsehood snd er j r?r we have but little reason to depend upon them. I But the rocks cannot lie: they remain'as the Cre i a tor placed them?or at least under the same laws ! which he first ordained : and all we have to do is j to open this book of nature and read it attentively j and with diligence. Nor need the religious fear 1 any subversion of their faith, nor infidels hope for ' any support from the investigations of geology ; as the slanderers of the science falsely declare. All the objects of geology aim at truth; and among the many distinguished geologists I have known. I have found but one or two infidels. Truth is al? ways truth, and no one truth, as has been remai ? ? ed, can ever be in conflict with any other, it is certain that along succession of ages passed away after the creation of this earth before man was formed. Nor dees this at all contradict the Scriptu | ral account: for we are told that in Ike beginning God created the heavens and the earth?and who but God knows when the beginning was.' But why particalar animals were created before mat j we can no more guess than why they exist now.? i They still escape our dominion?almost as com? pletely as if man were not in existence; The fish in the ocean laugh at our hooks?unless they i irao too near them: the birds of the air laugh at ?ur aim, unless they come too near our guns. And the insects?what can we do with them ? We can de? stroy a few large quadrupeds; but only to replace ;ijcm by others. We will look now at the remains found in the Silurian rocks. Among then are what are called trilobites?having three lobes wr divisions. I I ey were crustaceous animals, capable of contracting or doubling themselves up, asis seen by finding their tails in their mouths. They arw often found with their eyes perfect?great goggling eyes?loeki g ; out at you from their rocky bed ; and there is this ' prcttliar structure in their eyes : they have each about 400 lenses, piled one on another like cannon balls in a Navy Yard and presenting a similar ap pearance. This prove? that these early waters vrvre not chaotic, as is maintained by Werner, be? cause these eve; were made to see with, and the water must have been clear, for had it been muddy they could not have s?en through it, even if their eyes bad not been put out. When the eye? were placed opposite to each other, moreover, th ??? lenses are omitted?for they would hot ear" to look at ea?h other. I will not say that these are the earliest animals ever in existence, for others may have existed which have not yet been discov? ered. We will now pasw to another class. Those who arc familiar with the bonier- of Lake Ontario may have seen rocks of a conical form some ten feet in length crasflned by partitions. Through the mid? dle was a channel in which the animal lived. Yon j have all seen the shell of a pearly nautilus?the nantinlxispornpilius as it is called?which are s* often found upon the mantels of the tasteful and elegant. They were ealled polutkalamons, having many chambers or divisions?completely separa? ted from each other and air-tight; so that it was evident the animal could not inhabit them. Nor was it ever known how they did live until Mr. Bennet, an English Geologist, was so fortunate as to find one alive : and he found that, the creature dwelt in the outer porch of these chambers?rep? resented in a figure here exhibited. A syphun culus, ar slender tube, runs through all the cham? bers, just like the channel in the other species, except that it is not straight. The nautilus is of the same general character with the common cut? tle fish, which, you know, is furnished with long arms, sufficient to embrace the body of a man.? Animals are also found called cephalopoda's, having their feet upon thuir heads, and thus walking with their heads down. Fishes alone arc found in the Silurian rocks. There is a most beautiful collection of these fossils at Durham, Ct. There is also found avast number of molluscous animals, upon which 1 cannot stop to advert. It. may bo interesting to be informed that you have in this Slate a most extensive Silurian sec? tion; After you get a f*w miles beyond Albany, it a found all through to the Lakes: and Mr. Lyell has told me that there are there rocks older tluia any in Wales or England. The old red sandstone to which I will next advert is found just below the coal; it is called old to distinguish it from the new, which is above the coal: and it receive* it red color from the oxide of iron it contains. The red sandstone at Rochester is old, and lies far be? low the coal region.; and this is the reason: why geologists tell you that you need not look for coal i:t this State?because rocks lower than coal have been reached and still none has been discovered. We u?w come to the coal formation which fig? ures so largely in the economy of society as well as in the structure uf the earth. Its roof is the up? per sandstone, then comes the coal, then the carbon? iferous, or coal-boaring, limestone, and still lower are the transition rocks of Werner. In England the coal beds are 10.000 feet thick. In this for? mation are found what are called chriodeal, or lily-shaped animals, of h most beautiful formation t they were attached to the bottom of the sen and covered it as a forest does the land. The coal lies in beds of a uniform structure, found lyin^ like a pile of books?composed of gray limestone, sandstone, black coal and shale or slate. The beds vary in bight from the thickness of a knife blade to that ef fifty feet: the thickest are found : in Pennsylvania. The anthracite coal is the pro j duct of a vegetable dopositc ; and no leaves or (lowers could be laid away in a lady's herbarium j with mote regularity than are these strata. As the leaves fell from the trees they were covered with mud, as were also trees themselves. The vege? tation uf that day resembled the brake or fern of the j i present day; but it then reached a bight of some i ! twenty feet, whereas they are now no more than I two feet high. The bark Las a leaf-like appear- j j ance, as if a stamp had been impressed on it. At ; Wilkesbarrejthe leaves may be seen m;>:e than four feet across. It is remarkable that coal beds i are found only in aold climates?just where they I are wanted. But from the character nnd superior site of the vegetables of those day-:, it is evident ! that originally the climate must have been tropi? cal, or uitra-lrepical. If a piece of anthracite be j broken in the direction ofitsayers it will exhibit an appearance like charcoal?and even the cells which, contained the juices of the vegetable may be tra i ced. Fissures are often found across the mines |-caused by internal volcanic convulsions. ur.d in K.: rope trap dykes often cat through them ; sj that j the miner in tracing the direction of the vein, often > comes to one ?f these dykes, and it requires great ! skill nnil experience to know in what direction he is then to look for his coal. \*Y hen these dykes cut across, on either siuo the coal is bituminous?but j tit a distance of some fifty or a hundred feet its for? mer character is recovered. This i? caused by the agency of the heat which produced the dyke ; and ! Prof. Bakewell was greatly surprised that anthra? cite coal should b* t\n\nd at ali in Pennsylvania, ? j subjected as it has undoubtedly been to the action '. of heat which decomposes the coal and leaves little but cat bun. Next above the coal comes the new red sand? stone. It i? the scat of salt mines?both rocksalt and brine springs. In Cheshire, Eng., it: Poland, Cordovia, and Central Asia, rock salt is found in ! abundance. Dr. RobLison tells us, in his late work, that the Dead Sea contains 25 per cent, of salt.? lhe Caspian Sea, and Lake Oromnia in Persia,! are salt lakos. By the action of the sun the u ater is often evaporated, leaving a white girdle of sah ; completely around these lakes. Vast tracts in Persia thus Jyiag under the vun blaria" from a brass sky arc as sterile and barren as can" be con ceived. In this country until recently, it w*s sup? posed that we had no mineral salt?though our : brine springs are well known. Bur. last ye?r a real salt mine of forty feet thick was found in i Abingdon, V?. which new feature in the Geology j '? of Virginia we shall undoubtedly have brought out by Mr. Rogers; the S*a:e Geologist- Gypsum, or piaster of Paris, is found in the same formation : but I have time to -ay nothing of it. In Germany, in England, in Scotland, in Massa? chusetts end is Connecticut have been found ex? ternal impressions upon the sand ston- rock ; in ? jomc nlaces resemblihe thaband of a man. thou<rh : ot course it is net to oe supposed that it is the im? pression of a hand. The unknown animal that made them, evidently walked along on the soft sur? face leaving indentations which were filled in by ; matter deposited, and thus two impressions?one ': concave and the other convex, were produced: and : now when the rock is split open we find both of them. The animal which made these tracks has been named Chirctherium, and it remained un? known until last year, when Mr. Owen : und its I bones, and by the aid ot comparative ahatpmv; in which be was next to Cuvier, he proved that it i must be larger than an ex, and what do you think it was 1 Nothing mere than a Sog, as large \ as an or-:! Tt is not certain, to be sure, that 5: ; would pass for a frog now t but in its general con- j i notation it had a ?trong resemblance to this spe | dies of antmai*. Now I assure you that if this j j were mere fiction, a story of the Arabian Nights' i I Entertainment, I would not brtsg it forward : but I j it is among the demonstrations of science. It is j a fact, that, in the days when the coal was formed j ' nothing but reptiles existed. There were below I I the coal none that breathed the air, none taat had ! ! a voice : the Earth was covered with evergreen, j It pleased the Creator next to give bein-r to ani- j ma's having feet. [Prof. Sil Inn an then wen: into a description of] the ornithological discoveries of Prof. Hitchcock in the Valley of the Connecticut; by which it is ?-*en that birds existed here tall enough to walk the streets and look in at our chamber windows, and whose track? in the rock are now a* distinct as those of a. Hen in a barhyarrl. As weTiave already given a sketch of these in our report of Professor Hitchcock's lecture, wc shall not repeat it.] Passing Higher, wo find -till greater wonders";? In the Hat structure wc find remains of the petrfc lied spawn of fishes, and these exist in great num? bers in England and France. We find, also, the Plesiosdurus and the Ichthyosaurus, furnished with paddle* to make their way rapidly through the ocean. Prof. Siiliman went on to .peak of a species of alligator which once existed, that had the power of contracting the lenses of its eye by n compres? sion of the humors, so as to convert it either Into n a telescope or microscope ; of which several -p<" cTes have been fotind at Bristol, BVig'hton arid York in England. He mentioned, also, the (lying Sau rians, which existed when England was only a half-formed island, filled with lagunosy among which these animals swam. He drrcribed. also, tho her bivocrous Sanrinns, resembling the modern Iguana don : but as these topics were fully treated by Prof. Hitchcock, we shall not give his remarks upon them at length. Near Oxford linve been four.d remains of ;h" Megtlosaurius, winch waa one of the marsupial iinima!.-, or those that have pouches like the opos? sum. The kangaroo is of the same class. We pass next to ihe chalk formation, which is especially conspicuous in England ; giving, by its white dirts all ?long on both sides the channel, that beautiful white appearance which has cons ferTcdrupbhthe 4fast-anchored isle' the name of Albion. This is the last of the Marin:? Strata be? fore we come to a chance in the order of creation; These seem to be the debris or ruins of coral, or multilbpular shells, \vhich we find in Bermuda.? Coral '-]iif-> exist within the tropics at a depth, as wc now know, nut greater than 120 feet. They a:o formed by animal*, thousands and millions of which may be seen at work through the blue depths of the calm sea. They often build them in the shape of a horse shoe, with the outer edge toward the trade winds, and thus are often formed harbors for weather-beaten ships?often thirty miles in diameter. They often rise, above the waves, anJ form islands ; upon tne<e birds drop seeds from other lands: trees grow up and tho island is cov? ered with vegetation : animals, lizards and other species are floated loy ice, and a colony is established and soon man coos tliither, plants hi* proud ilag and claims it fur his own. It is not beyond the reach of probable conjecture that some day the Pacific, by the labor of these animals, may be bridged over, and its wuiery waste become tho seat of Civilization, Christianity and Empire; Prof Sillimun the* spoke at considerable length of the tertiary rocks and the shells foundin them,and referred especially to the phenomena of this kind j discovered in Italy amehg the Appenines, ami in ; the Vallede Noto in Sicily. In the stratum un? der Paris, which rests upon these locks, have been ftiuntl the remains of the Paraolherium, to which we have no similar animals now. He re? ferred also totlie dlegatheriuinoC".South America, to the Mastodon, the Deinolhcrinm, ami the an? cient elephant found in Northern Russia, which had a proboscis, which served as ;,t or.ee a nose and a hand?thus in tact carrying his nose in his hand. Going still farther up, Prof; S. said their bad been fotind in the peal bogs *: [reland re? mains of man, the last created animal ; clad it* skins, and in perfect preservation. As much of this subject has been treated before we have only aimed to stivu an intelligible sketch of the lecturer's remarks. He concluded by urg? ing upen the attention of those he addressed the wonders of the -cience he had been teaching. In person Prof. Silliman is tali, stoutly built, and has a highly intellectual and thoughtful countenance. His delivery is extreme!) rapid, more so than any Bther lecturer we have heard: he seems to speak from the fullest knowledge of his subject and with j on energy nr.d enthusiasm which frequently carry him from the main topic into collateral, though mosl ihterestinff. discussions.
