We have received advices of a revolutionary outbreak Sn the republic of Nicaragua, Senor Castellon ax the principal leed. r, supported by Colonels Pineda, Xeros, Zapata, Doctor Guerrero, and Jose Maria Valle, alias Cbollon, who had arrived from Honduras at the head of a strong force, and effected a linding at the port of Bealijo, which surrendered, as well as the town of Chi pnndagm. without a struggle, their object being to march - Upon Leon, from thence to the capital. The President, with the government officers, had removed from Mana gua to Leon, with the intention of resisting the attack meditated against that stronghold. The whole country was under arms, prepared for any emergency; hut the result so far remains a matter of great uncer tainty, and will depend upon the enemy's plan of action. Oistillon, Guerrero, Xeros and Dias, who are at the Mead of the movement, were banished from Nicaragua Mm| weeks before the present revolution, on suspicion Wf Ming engaged La a conspiracy to overthrow the ad ministration of Ghamorro. This act, however, only de lated for a brief period the execution of their plans, for ? had.they arrived in Honduras than they com I their operations anew, receiving, as is believed, not only encouragement, bat assistance, from that coun try. Their forces at present number nearly one thousand MM, and ara about equal in strength to those of Cha morro. They have already taken Realejo and Chimanda gu, both of which are towns of considersble importance, the ftrst on the sea coast and the second a short distance In the interior. tliamorro is said to be exceedingly tyrannic, and the people appear to know no law but his WllL His will has iu fact been that of a despot.

The city of Sap Salvador wns"totally destroyed by an earthquake ou the eight of Easter Sunday, by which up wards of two hundred lives and more than four millions J Worth of property were destroyed in less than one rai knte of time. On the Friday previous, until the raomont Otthe calamity, strong shocks of Earthquake were ex periaoced from day to day, until the night of Sunday the 1Mb, when, about 10 o'clock P. M., a rolling sensation, as that of a ware of the sea, and which lasted for about fifty (Koonds, laid the whole city level with the ground. The night being calm, the dust occasioned by the falling of the booses obscured the whole atmosphere, rendering it impomible for people to repognise their own relatives, plunder and robbery followed as a matter of course, the government with the troops having removed from the Scene of destruction at an early hour upon the following morning. Toe consequences accompanying this ruin are likely to be attended with very serious results to com mercial bush*-** throughout the republic.

Due Sn?I am authorized, by Capt. Churchill, to Communicate the following ztatement of facts, in order to give them publicity, free from any inaccurate source. R. LORD. n> EXPORT OF THE LATE HIGH-HANDED OUTRAGE AT SAN JUAN. Ob the evening of the 16th inst, the river steamer Booth, Capt. T. T. Smith, arrived at Punta Arenas, and waajyiag alongside the Northern Light, to deliver her About dusk, while the passengers were from one steamer to the other, a bungo, having ?B board some twenty-five or thirty armed men, mostly ,7?-'? negroes, headed by a mulatto man. culling him self the Marshal, came over from San Juan, or Grcytown, and ranged up alongside the steamer Routh. The so accompunied by several of his armed , jumped on board the steamer and announced their to arrest Capt. Smith, by virtue of a warrant from the Mayor of Greytown, upon the charge of murder. Captain Smith refused to be arrested, and armed him half for resistance. At this atage of the proceedings, Mr. Borland, the American Minister, who was at the time on board the Burthens Light, was informed of what was going on. Be immediately went on board of the Routh, where he found a crowd of persons?among them a number of the men from the bnngo?in a high state of excite Th# Marshal, with his men, was attempting to ?met dept. tknith; end the latter, standing at his cabin keeping thorn at bay. Mr. Borland at once 1, telling the Marshal that no authority recog I by the United States existed at Greytown to arrest, SB la any way interfere with, any American citizen, and mdaring him to withdraw bis men from the steamer, and go away. TIjc Mnr.-hal proposed to exhibit the Mayor's warrant, under which he was acting. This Mr. Borland declined to examine. After some hesitation, the Marshal announced his purpose to withdraw, na advised by Mr. Borland. While this was going on, sod before the Marshal and his men left the steamer, much excite ment waa manifested amont; the men who had remained <m board the bungo. Loud, threatening language was used by them; and brandishing their weapons, several at once ruiboi on board the steamor. At this moment Mr. Borland taking a rii.e from the hands of a bystand er, stepped over tlie railing upon the guards, warned the bungo to keep off and at their peril not to put a foot en the steamer- Upon this the movement towards boarding the steamer erased, and in a few minutes the Marshal and his men returned lo the bungo, and she retiirne 1 to the oppoeitr side of the harbor. About daifc llr. 1'oriand. accompanied by Mr. Scott, a eon of the agent of the Transit Company, on haard one of the boats of the Kortiu rn I.ight, went across the har bor to San Juan, or Giey to i n, to visit Mr. Fabias, our commercial agent Soon alter arriving ttiere. Mr. Bor land learned that at a meeting of the people of (he town, held at the station house and presided over by the Mayor, It had been proposed and seemingly agr. e 1 to that he (Mr. Borland) e Lot, Id be urres.ej. In a few minutes the execu tion of this proposition wuiuttemi'ted. A loud knocslng was heart1 at the lower doom of Mr. Fabius' house, ami upon hisjgo.itg to ascertain the cause, a ho ly of men, armed wish muskets, ror.siding in part of the regular police of the Cowa, rind loaded by a .laia.iiou ne/ro, In quired for Mr. Borland, and declared thoir purpose to arrest h m Mr. Borland hearing this, went dowu stairs, confronted these men, and demanded their business with him . their lewder Informed him they oame by order of the Mayor to arrest him, because of his preventing ths arreetef Captain flniltb; Mr Borland then repeated to them what be had said to the Marshal about their want of authority. Ac.., and inquired of them if th v were not aware of his exemption from arrest in his capacity of minister of the United' States To this they answered they eared nothing for all that, but tliat they hai corns to amat him and meant to do It. He then warn. ?d them of the serions consequences to themselves, and to all concerned with them, if thev proceeded to the extremities! they proposed. He replied they knew the consequences and were prepared to meet them. Mr. Borland then said to them, they mast proceed at their peril, and called several gentlemen who were in an upper room to come .town and be witnesses of the threatened assault apon him. Upon this, the leader of .the armed force called Mr. Martin, (ex-Mayor,) as if for the purpose of consultation, and Martin not answering, they drew off a little from the door in the direction, where from their manner they expocted to tlnd him. About this time, Mr. Borland^ still standing at the door, the Mayor (a Frenchman.) came np and said these procee lings had been withsot Ins order or anthority, anil while this eon vernation was going on, some one frongxho crowd threw the fragment* of a broken glass bottle, Which struck Mr. Borland and slightly wounded him in the face. The parti ealar person who threw this missile was not recognised, aa the night was dark and a crowd In the porch and ?boat the door. Soon after this blow was Inflicted upon Mr. Borland,the crowd dispersed. Mr. Fabius, the commercial procure.! a canoe and crossed the harbor to the Northern light, to make known to Captain Churchill ?nd the pawogers the state of affairs on the other side. A meeting was field, at which it was agreed to send a 1,11 tee ef three gentlemen to consult with Mr. Bor aa to the beat stepe to be taken. These gentlemen, with Mr. Fabius, proceeded hi one of the steemer's boats to the town; but upon approaching the ehore they were hailed by a number of armed mon, who Bred one gun over the boat, and threatened to lire Into them if they attempted to land; and thia, although informed that Mr. Fabius was on board, and desired lo go to hia consulate. Tbua forcibly prevented from landing, the boat returned to the Northern Light. During the night the town waa occupied by armed men, while sentinel* were stationed between the American consulate (where Mr. Norland was) and the harbor, challenging all who attempted to paaa, preventing boat* from landing or leaviDg the ahore, and thus keeping Mr. Bciland a prisoner all night. The next morning be pro cured a boat, and returned on board the Northern Light, where be waa infoi med by Mr. Fabiu*, our commercial aurnt, and Mr. Scott, the agent of the Transit Company, that from the violent and lawless disposition manifested by the people of San Juan, they did not consider the per sons and property of our citizens safe from aggressions and even destruction, in the absence of a force sufficient to protect them. Mr norland concurring in this opinion, called a meeting of the passengers, and proposed to en gage the services of fifty men, to remain and alTord the neeesaary protection until our government, informed of the state of affairs, should send a proper foroe for the purpose. 'lhe requisite number of men volunteered, and were organized under the command of Crawford Watcher, Kiq., formerly from Tenneasee, and now on his- return from lalifornia. Mr. iabius, our commercial agent, has taken up his abi de finder their protection; and Mr. Borland, on the Northern Light, proceeded forthwith to Washington to lay this matter beioro the government. R. LORD, Purser. a . The National Race Course. THE NEW YORK JOCKEY CLUB. We have given a detailed description of tho new race course near Newtown, and since that publication the preliminary steps to the formation of a jockey club' have been taken. It ia purposed that another meeting of members orly shall be holden at the club house, Prince street, this evening, when rules for the course will be adopted, the officers elected, and arrangements for the spring meeting to take place early in June. The new race couiye will be conducted after the style of the Metairie Course, New Orleans. Nothing but run. ning races will be allowed, and particular attention will be paid to the obtaining of any information as to the training and breeding of horses. The puses will be large enough to attract the l*?t horses in the country such flyers as Lexington, Highlander, Blonde, Aaron, Ac., Ac. The amount of capital to be Invosted is over a quar ter of a million of dollars. In addition to the perfect ar rangements on the island, the proprietors have fitted up a commodious and elegant club house in town, which will undoubtedly be the resort of turfmen from all parts of the country; and these meetings must bs productive of much good, by the free interchange of opinion upon all matters pertaining to the horse. On the course tho members of the club will enjey peculiar privileges, and its roll will include tho names of men occupying the highest stations in society. The Turf. CENTBKV1LLK COURSE, L. I.?PACING. The great novelty in the sporting world, the double team pacing race, for $2,000, which was to have taken place yesterday afternoon. Considerable controversy took place yesterday afternoon in relation to the bets made on this affair, some being under tho impression that the postponement would cancel the outside betting. This is not so. All bets must abide the original agreement, and go as it goes, w here the terms of tho match have been complied with by the principal parties engaged in making the match. This match has created great excitement in certain classes, and large amounts of money have beon staked on the event?probably $30,000. Until within a day or two the betting has been oven; but is now iu favor of the roan ponies. Should to-day prove fair, there will be an immense crowd at theCentrevilie Course. UNION COURSE, L.

His wife was awakened by the footstepa of a horse passing through the yard, at about 10 o'clock on Monday night last. She informed her huaband, who immediately went to the barn an 1 diaeovcre 1 that his horse had been stolen, and that a set of single harness was also missing He Aroused his neighbors, and search was made in different directions. Th >so who came to Jersey City had the pleasure, at 6 o'clock yesterday nn ming, of seeing the stolen horse approach the ferry gate, having on the mi sing harness, and attached to a wagon, which had been stolen from Mr. Win. Ackerman, who residea about three miles this side of Peterson. The establishment wsa heing driven; by one Thomas Moore, of Forty second street, near Third avenue, New York, who was taken into custody. During fhe same niglit a sorrel horse wss stolen from Mr. Acke-man, and a bay horse from one of his neighbors. These could n it be found. Morg-e was taken before the Recorder and committed to the cells until those having him in oustody were ready to return. When taken out of the cell it was found Hint he had made a rope of bed clothing and fastened It to the stovepipe with bis suspender, as if be intended to hang himself. A loaded pistol was found secreted In the bed, but it Is doubtful whether it belonged to the prisoner. He was taken to the Hudson county jail, at Pergen Corners, for safe keeping, as the Passalo county jail is being rebuilt. When the keeper went to the c< li of the prisoner yesterday morning, he found bim suspended by the neck, dead, hanging to the door by means of a sheet from his bed. His body was yet warm. It was evident from his appearance that ha died a hard death, by strangling. Ills face was purple, and hi* tongue was so swelled that it entirely filled his month. One hand was firmly fast to the grating of the door. Hla wife having heard of his arrest, started to visit him yesterday afternoon, not knowing nla fate, and was shocked to find him a corpse. His remains were taken to bis late reeidence, in New York, last evening, preparatory to interment. He intended to get the horse Into the market and sell him early in the morning, be fore bo could poeeibly be detected. AlOTULAK ECLIPSE OF 1854. Its Apprnnuirrr Pro^iM, and DiuiKitn-DI rtrUoni fur (mwrrlng It?EcllpmHiiitorl raMf Considered. This <l?y there will be an eefijue of the in visible throughout the United Stales, and annular in part of the Tferritoriea. of Washington and Minnesota, of Vsncouvsr'a Inland, Canada, and of the States of Vermcm*, New Hampshire, Maine, and Masst-jchu aette. Tirs eclipse is sailed annular on account of the ring of light which' is ferried by the outer edge of the nan being risible when the penumbra or shadow of the moon la passu-g orer it. Eclipses of thfs kind are of very rare occurrence, and it is this fast which renders ibis particular cae so pocudiarly interest ing. In Pans only one takes place between 1707 ana1 1900, while here we will be fi tored with no less than four between 1775 and 1901. The first and second of these have already taken place, baring been seen on the 2d of April. 1791, and on June lb, 1800. The third will come off this day, a.'d the fourth on September 28, 1875. This last eclipse will be less farorable for astronomical deductions thau the present, and heiica the opportunity now offered will be citenaively improved, both for the grntilioation of curiosity and the accomplishment of scientific purposes. In a letter from Mr. John Randel, Jr., published in the IIi.itaiD of the 12th inst , he announces tho extraordi nary fact that the magnetic needle, whieh had progress ed annually from the west towarda the n?rth at the rate of three minutes of a degree for mqre than one hundred years, prior to tho annular eclipse of the sun of 10th June, 1806, did, w thin one we?k from that date, recede from the north towards the west forty-fivo min ntes of a degree, which is equal to the whole distance it bad advanced, from the went towards the north in the fifteen years preceding that eclipse. Whether the same variation will take place In the needle on this occasion remains to be seen. should the sky be clear at the time of the phenome non, observers cannot be too careful about viewing it, ex cept through glasses so deeply colored that they will perfectly jg-otect the eye from the effect of solar light and heat. In consequence of the want of sufficient cau tion in this respect, at the time of the last very large eclipse in this vicinity, February, 1881, the sight of many persons was so much injured as to bo seriously impaired long afterwards, or even at the expiration of many months. The best glasses fon the purposo are the darkest of those which usually accompany a telescope or sextant, hut a piece of a window pane, free from veins, and ren dered so black (not browned) by the smoke of a lamp, that the sun, seen through it, will appear without any scintillation, will very well answer. Where the eolipse U annular, an opera or spy-glass, with Its smsllleu9, or that nearest the eye, blackened in this manner, will be fouud very useful lor ob serving the forming and breaking of the ring, the phenomena attending which are generally high ly beautiful. Even when the obscuration In greatest, much diminu tion of the light is not to be expected, or not more than in a cloudy day. Mars is the only planet that can possi bly be seen, and at the timo of the greatest obsourstion its bearing will be about south by east, and Its altitude f>5 degTees. Kirius, the brightest of the stars, will at tho same time hear about southwest, at an elevation of near ly 20 degrees, but it is not probable that either can be found without the aid of a telescope. The following is a table of the eclipses which were visible hi this country from tho year 1824 up. to the pre sent time. The hours count from 12 M., so that 19 means 7 A. H.: Beginning.

Viewed from different points on the earth's surface, From which the eclipse is at all visible, the sun will pre sent a different appearance to different observers. Tho first of the following diagrams (marked k v. b.) la Intended to represent its appearance at Ike least distance of the cen tres at Prescott, Canada West; Ogdcnsburg, N. V.; Addison, Mlddlebnry, Rochester, Royal ton, and Norwich, Vt. j Hano ver, Lebanon, Grafton, Sand hornton, Gilmanton, Roches ter, and Dover, N. H.; South Berwick and York, Maine, and at other places were the eclipse is central, or ve|jf near ly go?V being the vortex, or highggt point of th'e son at any moment; 6 and E the points of beginning and end. .y. _ The second diagram is in ^ifet tended to represent the appear ^|l ance of the iun at Boston, Cam. bridge, also Kingston, C. W.; Watertown and Sandy fane, burg. Concord, and Province AyBri town, Mass., and other places, situated about fifteen mile* northeasterly of the line of the southern limit of the ring. The third diagram exhibits the sun's appearanoe at Brunswick and Bath, in Maine, also (nearly,) at St. Albans, Hjc'e Park, Vt.; Lan caster, N. JL, and at other places situated about twenty miles southwesterly of the line of the northern limit of the ring. By tho fourth is exhibited the nppearnnce of the sun when most obscured at Philadelphia, also (nearly) .at Washington, Baltimore. New York, New ITaven, Hartford, Springfield, Worcester, and at other pi,ices where the magnitude of the eclipse Is from about ten to eleven digits on the northern l.'mb of tte sun. The last diagram represents (nearly) the appearance at Bsngor. Augusta, East port, Hal ifax, Ac , where the sun will be eclipsed abont eleven digits on the southern limb. It is a mistake to suppose that total darkness will follow this eclipse, as about one twelfth part of the sun's surface wilt be visible at the time of its greatest obscuration. A total erllpse would present a completely differ ent appearance, and is described by those who have seen it as truly awful. Halley, In an account which he gives of one that he himself had seen, says that at the mo meat when the sun was half obscured, a very evident circular rainbow was formed at its cironmferenee, with perfect colors. As the darkness Increased, he saw the shepherds on all sides hastening to fold their flocks, for they expected a total eclipse of an hour and a half in duration. After a few minutes, he was enveloped In a total and pnlpable darkness, which came upon him, he says, like rain, or like a great black cloud. Tha countenances of hie friends wore a horrible aspect, and the earth looked as if covered with one black pall. A few rays shot through the clouda for a moment, but Immediately after both earth and sky were enveloped in complete darkness. But the appearances of the earth and the aky during an annular eclipse, though worthy of more notice than is often given, are not the principal features, unless the day be cloudy. The formation of the ring will be, where it can he seen, the great attraction of the oeeaeion.

As (be approaching eclipse lias alr-ady become a sub jeot of general speculation, it is but reasonable to suppose that the most extensive preparations have been made by the scientific world t<f Its proper ob servation. The subject was thoroughly discussed at a meeting of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, held at Boston as early as the 14th of March. 18ft3, when a communication was received from Mr. Paine. He com puted the duration of the eclipse at 8 hour* 41 rain utes and 21 seconds. It will first enter upon the earth in the North Pacific Ocean, near the Caroline Islands, In latitude about deg. north, longitude 197 deg west; thence, taking a northeaaterly direction, it touches our continent near Cape Flattery, In Washington Territory; it thence passes over Vancouver's Island. British Oregon, Minnesota, Isle Royale, Istke Superior, Canada West, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine, to the At Untie, there it leavaa the earth in latitude about 80 deg., longitude 62 deg., having, m the time of it* continuance thereon, run ever 146>4 deg. of longitude, and 66 deg. of Utltude. The eclipse till not be annular at Georgetown, nor in deed at any other place couth ef Now England. The ob scuration?that is to any, the eclipae?will begin irt the Georgetown Obaervatory at two minutes and thirty-three and one fifth of a tccond past four o'clock in the after noon?that ia, very nearly at two and a half minutes past four. The greatest obscuration Or height of the eclipse will be at nineteen minutes and three-quarters past five o'clock, and the end at twenty seven minutes and twenty nine seconds past six. The whole duration at Georgetown, to the nearest second, will be two hours twenty-four minutes and fifty si? seconds. The point on the solar disc where tbo obscuration will first appear will be at 147.1 degs. from the sun's vertex, or his most northerly point, counting round to the right; hence the general observer will fix his glass (shielded by a colored screen from the atrength of the son's rays) to about ths southwest or further edge of the- luu's face. For the end of tbe echnee the glass must be- pointed to 21.8 degs. to the left of the sun's vertex, which will be on the hither edge, and a- little east of the sun's mpst northerly point. The number of digits t dlpeed at the Georgetown Ob servatory (and sensibly tin-same for the country rouud) 9 814?that is to say, mem than three-quarters, aud nearly ten-twelfths of the sun's diameter will be ob scared. In expressing the magnitude of tho eclipse, whether of the sun or of the moon, it is oustoinary to suppose tho diameters of these bodies divided into twelve equal part i, railed digits, and the magnitude of the eclipse Is crpressed by stating tifle proportion of the diameter of tho disc which ia obscurrd. Thua, when half tbe disc is obscured, we ray tbe ellipse measures p.* digits, and so on In observing an eclipse l'roir-aor Alexander s: ys, in n paper recently couimuuicated to the Americnn Associa tion for the Advancement of Science, at Washington, particular attention should be paid to tho color of the glasses used In the observation of the eclipse, since the phenomena present many different phases, and phases requiring a particular color to rtadcr tbe observation sat isfactory. As it had been asserted that the moon had bean seen before the contact of the shadow with the sun's disc, he suggested that several screen-glasses, of varioua colors, might be arranged in a circular frame, movable about a central pivot, so that each screen glass might, i-. its turn, bo brought in front of the eye-piece of the telescope, at tho pleasure of the observer. The rotury motion might bo rendered more nteady by tlx* preesura of a small spring with a tooth falling into a shallow dent in tho revolving frame, as 's the case in the adjustment of dark gl-stses made use of in some sextants. It would, moreover, Beem to be advisable that the succession of tints cf the several screen glassos should be such that the eye would not be too much ?blinked' or rendered insensible by a suddoa change of one for another; the order being somewhat liko the fol lowing: white, yellow, orargc, red, violet, blue, and (if there bo room fur them) then green ami greenish yel low; to come back, in the circuit, to white again. The wlrite tint of sunlight is preserved whoa ibe view is through 1 >r. Ma-kelyno's screen of liquid ink, or the like effect may be obtained by a suitable combination of screens of different colors, such as, for Instance, vio let and green glasses, tho number cf violet glasses being in excess. Tbo singularly tinted glass which goes by tbe name of hondon smoke, is, :41 wevcr, perhaps tho best of all for presenting a while- image of the sun, as by it all colors are transmitted, tithuugU with a dimi nished intensity. The following directions for. the observation of tbe eclipse were drawn up by Professor Alexander, and as the.y are for the most part caUly understood, they can be followed with profit ami interest by the mostun (cleollfic ?

Singularly enough, and as If In ac cordance with and corroborating the popular idea con cerning eclipses, that they only appear iu time of trouble, we find them, generally spraking, cither preceding or cootemporsneous with wara, pestilence, or famine. In 686, B. C , ffebuebedneeear waa King of Babylon, and his reign was a continued series of aggressive wars. ki 424. B. C.. an eclipse was observed at Athens, and in the following jeer there waa a terrific earthquake, winch separated the peninsula of Fuloea from the main land. A few years later the same occurrence so alarmed the philosophical Athenians, drawn up in battle array before Byracuee, that tbey wore easily defeated. 188, B. C., there was a total eclipse at Rome, and prayers were offered up for three consecutive days, to avert the evil; hut their prayers only po-tponel, for a briaf period, the evil day for a fearful plague, which soon after swept off two thousand persona every day from the Greek Islands, Egypt and Syria. But the greatest eclipse of which we have any record is that which occurred at the death of onr Saviour ? "And it waa about the sixth hour," saye the inspired writer, "and there waa a darkness over ail the earth nntil the ninth hour, and the sue was darkened." This waa a general eclipse, a total darkness he ring ffiUca upon the mth for three hums. . I In 1140 a total eclipse preceded the Woody end rntti* | tees wars of the Guelpbe and the Ghibelioee. i In 1101 the stare were visible st 1# Intkeaoniaf. I The third crnande took place in this year. In the same year a most singular pfcenon served?the true son, and the- appearance of that astronomers alone could distinguish the different with their glasses. There was total .larknes* in 1331, caused by an eclipee of the sun. This preceded a terrible plague in Pnttoi London and Ireland. April 22, 1715, a total' eclipse, acj the darkness so groat that the stars shone and the birds wont to roost at noon. Russia at war with Sweden. Venice at war srtth Turkey. War of the young Pretender in Scotland. The Orientals, generally, looked upon eclipses aa occur* rencce of a supernatural character, and attributed them to magical scienoe, or evil demons who we* endeavoring to destroy the luminary. In fact, they considered It n struggle between the powers of good and evil, and theg awaited the issue with breathless anxiety, trembling with apprehension as the shadow passed over the disc bf the sun, and radiant with joy and trhunph as it receded and ultimately disappeared. Some more zealous or more courageous tbau the frightened multitude, formed them selves ir to volunteer uuxilJary corp.i to assist the sore pressed God of Day, and armed wi'"? gongs nnd kettle drums endeavored to drive away hia terrible enemy. In some parts of the world eclipses are still regarded with a superstitious awe, as portending some terrible evil, but these fears are rapidly dissipating before the march of science and civilisation.
