The Start h Pole-Thc Kor??flnn Polar
f.XjtOflxflOtl*,
The G^rmnn ceographer, Dr. Petermimn,
publishes in the current number of bis
Geographische Mitthetlungen an elaborate
report on the recent Norwegian expeditions
to the Polar Seas. It appears from the ol>
starvations and measurements made by Capt.
.lohanneson and other commanders that
the sea grows deeper towards the north.
The whole of the in lot between Nova
Zemhla and t!io Russian coast Is less
than one hundred fithoms deep, ex
cept in three small places while to the
north of Nova Zemhla the places where the
sea is 100 fathoms deep are of great extent,
and at TO dep. north latitude the depth at
tains 1G0 tathoms. The deepest part which )
has vet been sounded in these waters is in
the Sea of Kara, east of the island ot Wai
gatseli (TO dog. north latitude), where the
depth is 400 fathoms. As to the climate,
the jrult stream is shown by the Norwegian
explorers to extend to Nova Zombla. The ,
stream is here from !."?() to 2(H) geographical
mile" wide, between the 70th and 74th degs.
ot north latitude, and of a considerably
warmer temperature than that, of the ad
joining seas. It proceeds from west to I
noith along the coast of Nova Zcmbla, |
where it meets another warm current pro
ceeding from the months of the Obi and
the Yenissei in the soil h. ?
l he most important result of the Xorwe
g an expeditions, savs Dr. Petermann, is
that they prove a complete dissolution of i
the ice in the Sea of Kara, and that the
fragments of ire which are still to be found
there In the j.imnier months in no way
impede either the navigation or the fishe- J
ry. It is now bevoud a doubt that this!
sea, which has hitherto been m siu h !
bad repute, can be traversed in all direc- j
tions, and that it is possible to sail round the ?
whole of the island of Nova Zemhla. This
completely dcin iishesthe old superstition
which gave the Sea of Kara the name of an j
??ice-cellar." During the tirst half of the
year, up to about Julv t, the navigation is ,
barred by a huge belt of ice between the I
(Mil and 7'Jd degrees of north latitude, east
and west of the Kolgouyeff islands. This ?
bolt extends northeastward from the Rus
sian coast to Nova Zemhla, and even in May
its average breadth i< l.V? geographical miles,
it may, however, le avoided, thinks Dr. |
Petermann. by sir- . ingto the northeast from
Norway, and to the northwest from the j
White Sea up to the 73J or 74th degree of
north latitude.
During the whole of tho months of July
and August the Sea of Kara i> completely
naviiraitlr, a* its avenge temperature is
?J.'J.j0 K.. and ice dissolves in those regions
at a temperature of ;??. It appears from
these data, concludes Dr. Petermann,
that even in latitudes so high as 70? the j
sea. thoiiirh blocked by huge masses of ice I
for tin months in the year, is open fornav- j
ig.it ion and completely free from ice during J
the two remaining months, and that sci- ,
en* i tic. discoveries of great importance
might be expected from an expedition sent
into the Polar sens by wav of the Sea of
Kara, the islands of New Siberia, and Bell
ring Strait.

La-t Friday e vening was particularly no- I

ground ot the picture. Venus was near i
tie- horizon, shining in soft. pensile beauty, i
Ale vc her hung the ci< scent in -on in silver
light. and suna-unded by a halo of small
??ireiimterenee, but retl eting every eolor of

?niid radiance of Jupiter, encompassed by
the l-ri^bte-t twinkling groups that -parkle
ill the cek-ti.d vault. lTarolfin The eastern
-k> slowly rose the red planet Mars.
Planets or ??wanderers," I lie (ireeks
c.iiir .1 the inembeisof the sul-ir system from
i : !.f strange motion-, now f ?nvard, now sta
ti'?nar\ . new tetivgrmlc, which they wat< h
; ed toil t-ould not comprehend. Science has
male th'-se intricate movement- clear as the
; daylight t - all who are willing to devoie a
j lit i Ie study to the subjecl. For the next
;two montns Venus will approach Jupiter,
nearly overtaking him at the time of her
greatest eiomratioii, w hile Mars w ill retain
nis sway in the east.
Venn*- is the most nearly like the earth of
any of the planets, and her coming transits
of 1ST 4 ami tss2 are being anticipated as
astronomical epochs. Mars is betier known
to u - than any oi" the planets, and the only
one where we can actually sec oceans and
continent-, morning and evening clouds,
and zones of snow and tee. .lupiter is the
great planet, whose va-t mass is always pro
ducing a commotion m the sj stein, either
causing immense spots on the sun, or turn
ing comet- out ot their orbits, or bringing
about the sun-epoch of magnetic storm.
The probability that he has not cooled elf,
but is a sun himself to the moons revolving
around him, is the interesting question in
hi-constitution which i- puzzling the brains
ot astronomers.
No thoughtful obse; ver can look upon
these glorious planet-, now shining so bril
liantly in our evening sky, without ponder
ing upon the suggestive problem of whether
they are worlds with living inhabitants like
oiiis. Everything has been discovered ex
isting among them but life, while results
almost as wonderful as the existence of or
ganic lib' have already rewarded the study
or astronomers. If a simple instrument
like the spectroscope has revealed their
constitution so wonderfully resembling our
own, we surely may have fait h that some
equally? iniple mean- for detecting the pre
sence of life remains among the undiscov
ered treasure- of the future, llappy will
be the philosopher who linds the key which
shall unlock the hidden secret !

Mr. Boas returned inside the appointed

nnd was met at the door by the defendant,
who professed to be surprised that he should
call so soon, nnd stated that his uncle was
sull'erins: from inflammatory rheumatism
and still unable to appear." He was then
notiticd that he was under arrest. At the
hearing he told contradictory and incon
sistent stories, and it was palpablo that he
had intended to defraud Mr. Boas of the
articles, but had been overmatched in acu
men, and failed in his designs. The case
was linallv dismissed, intent only being

That is a sad story told by a California
paper of a son of a missionary "to the Tonga
islands, who, naturally desirous of seeinga
civilized country, obtained permission from
his parents to visit the United States, but
was killed by the Arizona Apaches. But he
found a friend, a rough frontierman, who
not onlv slew the Apache murderer, but
has mafled the Indian's scalp to the good
old missionary as a consolation for his son's
death.
A butcher at Toledo was quite astonished ?
last week to find in the stomach of a cow
over 30 shingle nails and a gold ring. The
latter article, it was ascertained, had been
placed In cake, to be drawn for at a social
gathering, but was not drawn. Having
been cast away with the wreck of the even
ing's pleasure, the presence of the ring in
the cow's stomach may be accounted tor,
but how the nails got there remains a mys
tery.

REMARKS.
Offerings to-day were very llgbt, which was. In
pari, owing to the Inclemency of the weither. We
have nothing new to note aa regards price#, for
sales were very small, the rain having thrown a
! damper on transac'.lons. With this day com
mences another month? one, we have no doubt,
like every mon;h that has preceded It since the
Exchange was established, to be characterized by
good feeling and fair dealing among the members.
lnuee<J, It Is pleasant, very pleasant, to be able to
record (and we say It In all truth and sincerity) the
fact that the members have deported themselves
toward? one another as becomes Southern gentle
men. The Exchange Is working with uninter
rupted smoothness? In fact, as smooth as the
movements of that charming little girl (Miss Ly
ons, of Petersburg.) who, at the suggestion of our
friend B., was crowned queen at the skating rink
on Friday evening last.
Much Interest being felt in the question of the
importation and exportation of wheat here, wo
give the following statement, as kindly furnished
to us by Mr. Bellen, or the Richmond dock :
Inward. 1870._October, 0,030 bushels ; Novem
ber, 10, 594 bushels ; December, 7,000 bushels. 1?71 :
January, 200 bushels; February, 33,491 bushels;
March, about 17,000 bushel?.
Outward, ls70 ? October, 27,588 bushels; Novem
