Ol'il FOR'I‘RIISSES.
The defenses of a country are in some
manner indicative of its greatness and
certainly are the safeguard of its pros
perity. When those are adequate, stand
in},r at its harbors a silent surety for the
protection of its cities and their homes
and industries, labor goes quietly to
work to build and enhance its val
ues, and does not stop or hearken
with hated breath when the rude tocuiu
of foreign war is sounded. Long years
of peace with the outside world and
zealous labor in building up local indus
tries may, and in the very nature of
thing- does, overcome the broader and
more remote possibilities of a future
med ofdefensc in the popular mind, but
governments should uevor lose sight of
these if they would insure themselves
against the possible calamity of sudden
onslaught. That the people. of the
Pacific (‘oast may understand the nature
of the defences with which the United
States Government has seen fit to guard
their two principal ports of entry, we
subjoin from the reports of the Chief
Engineers of the U. S. Army advunve
sheets which have been furnished by
('Ol. (iillespie. a description of the de
fences that guard the harbor of San
Francisco and the mouth of the Colum

render each eilvctivo for thelpurpose

This casemated work, commenced in
1853, and its exterior earthen liarbette
batteries, commenced in 1870, form the
defenses of the smith side of the Golden
Gate, the entrance to San Francisco har
bor. No Work upon these batteries has
been done since 1870, for want of funds,
and the imputance of an efficient pro
tection of the city of San Francisco, the
navy-yard at. Mare island, and the United
States arsenal at Benicia, warrants an
early and adequate appropriation there
for; and for this purpose the sum of
SIOO,OOO is asked for the next fiscal year.

Alcatraz Island lies in the harbor of San
Francisco, two miles inside its entrance,
in a very advantageous position for the
defense of the channels on every side 0!
it. In 1870 the work of remodeling the
defenses of this island to adapt them to
modern ordnance—this work, consisting
of the construction of heavy earthen bat
teries—was commenced and carried on
fora few years, when it was suspended
for want of funds. The last appropria
tion $325,000) was for the fiscal year
1875-’ 6, although there was some work
dene, mostly by the military prisoners
confined on the island, in 1877. The ap
propriation ($50,000) asked for will be
applied to the construction of gun plat
forms for earthen batteries ready to re
ceive them, and to the construction of
earthen batteries not yet commenced.
No work was done at this fortification
last year beyond its preservation, protec
tion and repair.

One of the two temporary earthen bat
teries at this point, (constructed during
the late civil war, is wholly uneervmcn

end the timber magazine has, in part,
fallen in. During the your the timber
magazine in the other earthen battery
has been re-built, and three timber plut
ferme have been rc-plnced for purposes
of drill and practice firing. Projects for
new earthen batteries of heavy, guns and
mortar: for the occupation of this impor
tant point in the second line of defense
for the bay and harbor of San Francisco
have been prepared by the Board of En

The three earthen batteries on this Is
land were built during the late civrl war
{or temporary use. The timber plat
forms and the timber magazines are
decayed, and nearly all the gun-car
riages have been condemned. The lint
teries are practically unserviceable.
Bnrhette earthen batteries for the heav
iest guns have been planned by the
Board of Engineers for the Pacific Coast,
to occupy the most valuable positions on
the channels leadingy to the upper part
of the bay, to the navy-yard at Mare
Island, and to the arsenal at Benicia.
These constitute the defences of San
Francisco in their present condition and
us will readily be seen the menace they
offer to apresnmptuous invader is not
practically formidable. We come now

The Future of Weather l‘orctelllng.
In no other part of her wide realm has.
science done so little for the good of man
or her own fame as in the department of
meteorology. In the solid earth her
prophecies have long had a high value,
in the far ofl heavens her empire is
aflirnied, but in the unstable air between
these two well possessed provinces there
isaregion that is not yet subjugated.
Around the border of the domain of me
teorology some gains to the cause of law
and order have indeed been made; we
control the lightning, we are able to
track a clearly defined storm for days on
its path, and can hel the sailor to knowl
edge that often ensbiiss him to escape its
clutches when it assails him on the deep
see; but as for foretelling the weather in
any proper sense, we have not yet attain
ed to it. Is it attainable? Can we hope
to compass the conditions of our days
so that we may sow and reap,
travel, feast, or make war in weather of
our choice? This is, after all, perhaps,
the most interesting of the questions
that the future history of science must
determine. But though the perfect
answer is not to be given at present,
there are some things in the existing
conditions of our science that make us
hopeful that we are but at the beginning
of the work of weather forecasting.
There are two distinct scientific efforts
at weather foretelling, as distinguished
from the current survival of the modes of
thought of ancient ages that are intro
duced in our ordinary weather prophe~
cies. that undertaken by Admiral Fitz~
my, in England, and that begun in this
country by the United States Signal
Corps, under the control of the late (len
eral Myer. Both of these have made
their basis of the simple principle that
weather always has a history: that it
means conditions that pass from one re
gion to another by certain laws of move
ment and at a certain rate. This general
fact was long ago recognized by meteor
ologists, but it was not until the tele
graph enabled knowledge to outstrip
the storms that it was possible to make
any use of it in foretelling the weather.
By the admirable labors of the United
States Signal Service this method of
announcing the weather that is jour
neying towards any locality has been
brought to a high point of perfection,
but it has not to any extent helped
us to foretell the creation of weather.
When a weather area forms in the far
West, it is now traced as clearly as the
path of an army, until it passes
away. Sometimes the state or the
barometer will tell uomuthing about
storms that have not yet gathered them
selves for their eastward march, but be
yond this there have as yet been no
means of foreseeing. The weather
bureau is of no more use than a groumb
hog or a goose~bene for telling us
whether our comingr spring or summer is
to be warm or cold, rainy or dry. Is
this the end of our advance? (lan we
hope to do no more than take the storms
we find afloat, and trace them on their
courses; or can we hope to look behind
them to the conditions of their origin so
clearl that we can foretell their cause
and place of working?—[Novemller At
lantic.
Just as the stars above are separate
and distinct from each other, so is every
human soul solitary and alone. Each
travels in its own orbit, its course deter
mined by the attraétion and repulsion of
the heavenly bodies that environ it.
