IVBOn A SPECIAL COKltESION.IfcNT OF TIIK TKIUtSl". 1 8aN Francisco, Juno H.?The expedition sent out by tbe National Academy of Sciences to observe tbs solar echpee of May G arrived here to-day, bringing intelligence of success iu their work. Ibe party waa conveyed from Callao, Peru, iu the United Btat<"8 steamer Hartford, leaving that p orton March 22. They numbered eight, including two observers sent by tbe Royal Society of England, who co-oper? ated with the American observers. Tho voyage from Callao was made almost wholly under sail, sud was without special incident, smooth seas. Steady wind and fair weather prevailing with scarcely any exception. The admiral's quarlere were assigned the patty, who are indebted to the ?fflcersof the Hartford for innumerable courtesies nud attentions, both ou the voyage and in connec? tion with th" scientific work of the expedition. Caroline Island was reached on April 20. and proved to he a chain of small coral islands encir? cling a lagoon. These islands are not barren, but produce an excellent growth of vegetation, includ? ing a large number of cocoanut aud other trees. A small deposit of guano is found, mid together with cocoanut* is made un article of export by the timi Of Houlder tit others, of Loudon, who leaso this and other Paulie hleatiB from tho English Government. At tbe lime of the visit of thc astronomical expedition, seven persons were living ou the island; four men, one of Whom was accompanied by his wife and two chil? dren. Thea* had been bro'.ight from Tahiti two months before by the agent of Houlder Brothers to take care of the young cocoanut trees and tho propert v left on tbe island. The latter included everal substantial frame houses und a quantity of tools, stores, clo. Thc houses furnished acceptable accommodations to tha visitors wiio thus found un? expected luxuries iu their camp life. Mi ssw alia wa ron wokk. The unloading of the cases forming the outfit of the party was attended with Homo difficulty, as everything was necessarily brought from the sh'p In small boats which ajreaaied on the saral rock several hundred feet from the whore. From this point the boxes wore enrned to the shore, which was composed of rough blackened coral rock, and thence to the site selected lor the observations, a total distance of 2,700 teot. When the unloading was finished, the Hartford,which, on account of the Impossibility of anchoring, had been obliged to He off abore, went to Tahiti and returned alter the eclipse. A party of French astronomers arrived ou 1/Eciaireur, on April 22, and slso found accommo? dations on tbo island. They were M. .lau**- n, the distinguished pb.sicist whose observations in former eclipses are Well known; M. Tuccbini, the Bpcctroscopist of tho college at Koine; M. Palisa, the discoverer of many asteroids; and M. Trou Telot, formerly of Cambridge. Ma*s., who is espe? cially known for his skilful astronomical drawings, They were accompanied i,v If. |'as"i ur, the photog? rapher of the observatory at Meudon. The American party vv,,* increased to twelve by the addition of lour oflicers lunn tho Hartford, Messrs. Qnaltmngh, Dixon, Fletcher and Doyle, who were assistod by ten members of tho crew. The two we. ks preceding the date of tbo eclipse i were spent in mounting tlie instruments anil in Other preparation*, in making observations for time and latitude, aud noting the meteorological condi? tions nf the island. Mesars. Preetea and lim wa a so carried out the instructions nf the United States Coast Survey by nial.int* peadnlnn observation* to determine ths force of gravity at this i-latid. Ihe weather during this fortnight was in general pleas? ant, but characterized by flyiug cumulus clouds With occasional abowera. There waa one rainy day, tbe rainfall amounting: in eight boura to nearly five Inches, wbilo the total rainfall during the slav on the island was eight inches. Tho wind was uni? formly from tho north or east, hut never fi om a point south of east, though the island is in the re? gion of tho southeast trade*. OBSERVATION* AXD RESULTS. On the morning of tho eclipse the weather condi? tions were very unfavorable ; the sky was overoast, and the clouds threatened ram. After two shower* the sky cleared al*ou t half an hour before tbe time of first contact and rem ai nod nearly clear till after the eclipse. There was at all times.however,a haze in the atmosphere and passing clouds frequently concealed the sun. In the first minute of totality a thin cloud partiallv obscured the corona for about 20 secoml*. with this exception, whicli d:d not interfere with the ohservationa, the period af totality. 5 minutes. 25 seconds, waa favorable for the observers, though the total phase had scarcely passed when a heavy eloud coverel the sun. All fonr contacts were ob? served, aud during the total phase the observations were made in almost strict accordance with tho plan already made known to the reader* of The Tri neva. The results of the observation*, so far as they can he given iu advance of the detailed reports of the observers, were us follows: No intra-Mercuria! planet* were discovered, t'ie search being conducted hy 1'rofe.ssor Holden, of the American party; by M. Palisa. of tho French party, and, during a portion of totality, by M. Trouvelot also. In addition photographs ware obtained by the Frenchmen of tho sky ia the vicin? ity of the eclipsed sun. The spectroscope observa? tions give iutores'ing results, especially those of Dr. Hastings, who used a ?J0U priam attached to a 6-4-inch equatorial. The special feature of the apparatus, however, was two total reflecting prisms placed in front of the slit, by which the spectrum from two opposite side* of tbe limb could be brought into juxtaposition and examined simulta? neously. This was uaed to observe tha appearance of the 1,474 coronal line on the eastern and we-ttern limbs of the sun and to note the ch.mges aa the eclipse progressed. At the beginning of totality the 1,474 hue on tbe east? ern limb was bright, and extended about 12' from the sun's edge, while on the western limb it was faint and only abou* 4'in length. As the eclipse advanced this inequality vanished: the lines be? came M-u*ibly equal iu height and bright tn-ssat mid eclipse, while at the close of totality the conditions at the beginning were reversed, the line on the wet era limb being tba longer aud brighter. Dr. Hast? ings i.'.'.mia thia observation as conclusive proof that tlie outer corona is mainly a phenomenon ol diffraction, amce this chunga was many timea greata! than any due to the moon's motion aloue. Other spectroscopic observations at re made by Messrs, Rockwell, Upton and Brown. The bright hydrogen and magnesium lines were sean, und Ur. Ha*tiaga noted the dark D linea. The relative heigb's and brightness of the coronal rings (J, I), and 1,471, were estimated. Mr. l'reston noted radisl polarization. The chromosphere was unusually quiescent and the pr uiiiiiMites few. The corona was bright and Waa chuiactrrized bv bve noll dehned stresses!*, Which were sketch"d by Dr. Dixon Tin a/.iiuutlia Si ta* shadow fritig'-s at the le ginning and end of totah'v wereobtainrd and Mteiruiataaneaeatiinated. The nictcoiologic.nl observations made by Mr. Up? ton ahowed a well walked rise in barnrnetric pres Burs amounting to 0.02 inches, a rise ia humidity Vt ti per cent; a fail iu temperature to that of night, and absolute steadiness in both the diiection and velooity ot the wind. The radiation observations show el that t he receipt of heat by the earth from any source Was almost wholly checked. The English photographers Messrs. Lawrance A woods, a**))st*d by Slr CJ, laltrough, untamed a aerie* u| negatives of tb* corona to its outoi hunts and also of the coroual spectrum, wuich contained several bright linea. Tbs phenomenon of the re, vernal of the lir.es st the neginning and end of totality was also succsestnUr photographed. The trench astioiioiueis obtained a aeries of coronal begatnes. Mr. Janssen noisd dark Hues in ths ?pectruu) of the corona, and M. Tacolnin ohserved aspect mm resembling that of comets in one of the Coronal streamers. M Trourelot made a sketch of ?ne corona with a six-inch equatorial. TIIK IlKTCKN VOYAQr.. The mein tiers of tbe expedition have enjoyed ex? cellent health dunn* thc whole trip. The Hartford ??turned to Caroline Island two days after thu eclipse, and ou May 9 left for Honolulu, The pori of Hilo, Hawaii, waa reached on May 24, whare a atop ot four daya wa* made to allow time for a visit to the volcano of Kilauea.

OB1TDABY. CHARLES BACKUS. Charles Backus, tito .yell-known minstrel, died al lils home in West Forty-fourth-st at ten minutes to ti j estriday morning. While cons. iousness remained be w.'o bad furnished food for laughter to many thou" sauds could not chick the habit of his life-time, and he Jested with death as long as his lip* could frame articu? late words. When the doctor told him on luesday that his life was near lu rna. he said : " Oh, then, I'll be an end niau to the la*t." Ile saw hi* wife weeping on ono wein 'ti when ho waa undergoing au operation. Ile slopped the physician, and pointing to bl* wife, aald, " Doctor, what beats a good wife I " The doctor pos? sibly never heard tho old minstrel conundrum, and an awered that he did not know. "A bad husband," waa the au*, wer which the minn rel gave him. Hie brother was with him a short timo before the doctor told bim he could not live and sahl, " Charl.e. I'm .toing down town." " Are you?" aaid Charlie. "Well, Jim, 111 he here winn you come back." Mr. Backus's life was a vined one.

A TRAIN THROWN FROM TUE TRACK. HUNDREDS 0? PEOPLE DETAINED FOB HOURS OX THE MANHATTAN BEAOH ROAD. An accident that Dearly caused tho lou of a great many lives occurred on the Manhattan Beach Rail? road last night about three inilea south of East Now-York, tn the town of Flatlands. The 6:10 p.m. train from the Flatbush Avenue Depot, Brook? lyn, wlion rounding a curvo on an embankment about twenty feet high ran ntl the track, the engine half burying itaelf in tho sand and two cars toppling partly over. There wore seven cara on the train, all loaded with pas*' libers on their way to the beach to seo the fireworks. The train was gointt at a high rate of speed at the time and the track spread. There was an embankment about twenty feet high on one Bide, but on the otherside thr-re was a small hill. Although ail the cara left the track, which waa torn up for a considerable distance, they ran Into the aide hill and lodged crossways on the track, without any of them going over the embank? ment. Owing to this fortunato circumstance lin lives were lost, though a number ol' persons were injured, but none seriously, so far as could be learned last night. The railroad etnploves re? fused to give information, aud it was difficult to ascertain who wore injured. Tho accident occurred about one milo and a half north of the junction with tho Bay Ridge Branch. Instead of immediately stooping other trains com? ing from both directions, no word waa telegraphed to tin* Flatbush Avenue Depot aud four other trains loaded with passengers were allowed to proceed to? ward the beach. These ware all stopped at the wreck and wero held there for boura, the conduc? tors asserting that they could not r?tum to the depot without orders. Trains also carno np from Manhattan Beach. In this way noveral hundred meu, women and children weto detained at the wr**ck and were not brought back to the depot until 11*30 p. m. Them was great indignation ia consequence of this treatment.

LA BO ULA YE AND SC MS ER. The following extract from a private letter written by M. Laboulayo iu 1878, describing lila ac? quaintance with Cbailes Sumner, has been sent to Tua TsincNK for publication: During his but visit to Parla. Mr. Sumner expreeaed * strong desire to see M Gumlietta. This was easily brought about. I dined with Mr Mininer the day after the interview and asked him what (Impression .'aiubctt* had mads on bim. ** I found him," bo replied. " sn ami? able au il intelligent mau, who appeared to be animated by the beat Intentions Rut it seemed to me that tho political education of M Gambetta was very incomplete, ami that be bul uuicti to learn before ha should be ttl tm govern such a country a* Francs l said to him on departing: I am not French, I am uot well enough ao quulnted with your people to say what line of pulley ?nit* them But you wish to found s republic without religion. In America we should consider such an at? tempt chimerical and doomed to eer'alu disaster." I knew Mr. Sumner on his first visit to Paris, after ths Brooks aflalr Wa were very quickly drawu to each, other, because of a, common weakness?the love of books. I remember the pleasure no felt In Uniting iu my library a puu-pulut in Quarto entitled, if I am not rula taken, ? ?oyage tn America, Printed nu board tho Squad? ron; Forty ooploa struck off." This volume ls the first sketcn of the voyage of the Marquis of < oi.steilui, wUo wa.* a brigadier -general In tile French atm*- under Ro? chambeau. Au account of this voyage was printed later ia France, lu two octavo volumes, a' out the year 17i0. Rut tia interesting feature of thi* pamphlet was ita hav? ing been minimi ou board tho Fi eui li tt'Uadiou which, carried the army of Rocr.ambcau to Rhode Island, t Immediately .presented tbe pamphlet to Simmer, who too* li arith hun to America. Such arc my anecdotal recolli-ctioue of Sumner. It la scantly neeissary to say that ho was received every? where as be deserved to bc, ami that ever*, body was Struck by his polished manners, hi.* n.f uta! power* amt bis elevated chai aeier I do not believe tbat an Amer? ican ever iiiadc so great au impression iii France, and I know tbat be fully appreciated the kind recaption be had experienced on avery baud The consciousness of thle good will which sin rounded him -.-ave lil* nun I fresh \ li licit,y, and whether be spoke iu Fnglisb or In Frencb (an I be was quite at his case lu the latter language), be expressed buim-ir with a warmth and a gaj ety which added uer charms to St* superior intellect, ile has left many friends lu France, and his premature death caused profound regret.
