AN OCEAN ItlYER. rlVo very of m TUlrd Eqnatorlal t'orrrnt . , . - . . ' I- 1st tki Pacific. ' ' : Tlifi London Nautical Gazette con tained recently an interesting announce ment and detailed account of a newl j tliscovered current in tlie equatorial Pa-' cific. : Tho discoverer and exjlorer of this remarkable oceanic movement is Citpt, John McKirdy, Of the ' 6teamsliip Peruvia, running between Callao, Hono lulu, and Hong Kong, who has devoted much study to the circulation of the sea from the Peruvian coast to Panama, and i thence westward along tho equator. It is well-known that approximately parallel witn ''the line" and from the second to the tenth parallel of north latitude the Pacihc . "equatorial counter-current moves eastwardly, contrary to the grand general movement of all equatorial waters. Along the western coast of South America there has been also recognized ince Humboldt's time a vast flow of glacial water from tho Antarctic basin, which, after penetrating to the equator, : turns westwardly and fails into the general westerly movement . But. now, to the surprise of hydrographers, a third and powerful equatorial current is revealed by Capt. McKirdy 3 explorations, which presses with a large volume irom the Mexican and Panama, coasts first to tho southward and then to the westward. The remarkable features of this , cur rent are its shape, force, and color, with its' temperature all so distinctly tracea ble far from land that its explorer says: 'its color is a deep, deep blue, or dcrp bluish-black,' and cannot be mi,stalvv'-n (tho surrounding waters of the N orth Pacific are a bright, beautiful blue), and its waters differ in temperature from that around it by about two degrees, so that you can tell in a minute if you 8 re in it or out of it. " As it flows west of the one hundredth- meridian, west longitude, it fuels the northwestward pressure ot tne great body of Antarctic water known as If umbolt's current, oi a. "dark, dirty green nue; and tnus tne contrasted stream of "deep bluish black is forced bodily north of tho equator, forming a shrunken horn ' or distorted letter S re versed, the lower end pointing to Panama and the upper a little to the eastward of the Sandwich Islands. The equatorial counter-current also aids in causing this "bend" in its course, but when the pres sure is removed the current of dark blue resumes its westerly path, curving gently round. : The, explanation of this "mighty river running in tne l'acinc Ucean, as tJapt. McKirdy calls it, is verv rationally pointed out by himself. " There is con siderable testimony,'' he says, " as to the existence of a current setting to the south ward and southeast along the Calif ornian and Mexican coasts (possibly a continua tion of the J apanese current). Thi3 body of water gets pent up in the Gulf of Pan ama. It cannot get south on account of Humboldt's current, and tho two streams change their course to the westward, running along side by side near the equator, until they meet the equatorial counter-current, which splits them like a wedge." Undoubtedly, as this abla offi cer of the mercantile navy suggests, the the newly-disCovered "horn-shaped cur rent" is " a continuation of the Japanese current." known as the Kuro Si wo, or " Black Stream of Japan," whose pheno mena and movements oil tne coasts of Japan and its recurvation across the Pa cific to the California coast were origin ally ascertained and charted by dipt. Silas Bent, of London, in Perry's Japan expedition. The deep-blue color of the Kuro Siwo near the Japan . Islands . and all the way across the North Pacific to California marks its identity with Capt. McKirdy 's "deep bluish black" current as traced westwardly from the Gulf of Panama to the mid-Pacific. The importance of this discovery is recognized by the highest authority of the British Admirality as reflecting new and decisive light upon the mysterious circulation of Pacific waters, and as jus tifying a recasting of Western Pacific charts. It affords a long-looked-for key to the - history of the Kuro Siwo the Gulf-stream of the greatest of oceans as that dark water, after coursing so many . thousand of miles, bends around the North American coast, and, complet ing its grand round, re-enters the main equatorial stream whence it originates, near tho Asiatic coast. It is quite evi dent, also, that for all purposes of navi gation in the region through whiclrit moves, so magnificent a "river in the Bea" (within which the Peruvia made the handsome run of 322 miles a day), is destined to be a great highway of com merce. " The report of the Silk Association of America for tho fiscal year ending July 1 last shows the total value of the raw silk imported to have been 11,688,822, an increase of $3,000,000 over- the previous year, and $7,000,000 over the year 1878. The value of tho entire importation of manufactured silk goods was $30,596, 003. now to W Ate Well. We believe that tho whole o this method is a mistake ; that there is no single system of race unique lor writing, antl that a child belonging to the edu cated classes woulel be taught much better and more easily if, after being once enabled to make and recognize written letters, it -were let alone, and praised or chidden, not for its method, but its result. Let the boy hold his pen as ho likes, and make his strokes aa he likes, and write at tho - pace he likes hurry, of course, being discouraged but ' insist strenuously and persist ently that his copy shall be legi ble, 'shall bo clean, and shall ap proach the gAod copy set before him, namely, a well- writ ten. - letter, : not a rubbishy . ; text on . a single line, writ ten as. noboely but a writing-master ever did r will write to tho world's end. He will make a muddle at first, but lie will soon make a passable imitation of his copy, and ultimately develop a char acteristic and Btroughaiid, which may be bad or good, but will not be either meaningless, undecided, or illegible. This haud will alter, of course, very greatly as he grows older. It may alter at 11, because it is at that age that the range of the eye is fixed, "and short sight betrays itself ; and it will alter at 17, : because then tho system of tak ing, notes at lecture,, which ruins most hands, r will havo . cramped and tem porarily spoiled the writing; but tho character will form itself again, and , will never bo deficient in clearness or decision. The idea that i it is to bo -clear -will have stomped itself, and con-. fielenee will not have- been destroyed by worrying' litJo rules - about attitude and angle and shape '-which tlie--very irritation of the pupils ought' to con-, vince the teachers are,' from some per- eonal peculiarity, inapplicable. " The lad will write, as he does anytliing else that ho' cares to do, as well as ho can, and with a certs in efficiency and Bpeed. Al most every letter he gets will givo him some assistance, and the ' master's re monstrances on his illegibility will be a'tfended to like any other caution given . in ' the curriculum.

It is occasionally so great as to cause the pinions to emit a drumming sound. To this source the buzz of the fly, the drone of the bee, and the boom of the beetle are to bo referred. "When a grouse, partridge, or pheasant suddenly springs into the air, the sound produced by the whining of its wings L greatly resembles tliat produced by the coaSact'of steel with the rapidly revolv ing stone of the knife-grinder. It has been estimated that the common fly moves its wings 330 times per second, i. c, 19,800 times per minute, and that the butterfly moves its wings nine times per second, or 540 times per minute. These movements represent an incredi'Jv high speed, even' at the root of the vh.gs; but the speed 5s enormously increased at the tips of tho wing3 from the fact that the tips rotate upon tho roots as centres. In reality, and cs has been already indi cated, the speed of the tips of the wings increases in proportion as the tips are removed from the axis of rotation, and in proportion as the wings are long. This is explained on a principle well under stood in mechanics. . If a rod or wing hinged at one point be made to vibrate, the free end of the rod or wing . always passes through a very much greater space in a given time than the part nearer the root of the wing. The pro gressive increase in the speed of the wings, in proportion as the wings be come larger, explains why the .wings of bats and birds are not driven . at the ex travagant speed of insect wings, and how the large and long wings of large bats and birds are driven more leisurely than the small and short wings of small bats and birds. That the wing is driven more slowly in 'proportion to its length is proved by experiment, and by observing the flight of large and small birds of the same genus. Thus, large gulls flap their wings much more slowly than small I gulls: the .configuration and relative size of the wings to the body being the same in both. This is a hopef ul feature in the construction of flying-machines, as there car, lie no dobut that comparatively very slo , movements will suffice for driving the long, powerful wings required to ele vate and propel flying-maelimes. The speed of the wing is in part regulated by the amplitude of the wing. Thus if the wing be broad as well as long, the beats are necessarily reduoed . in frequency. This is especially true of the heron, which is one of tho most picturesque and at the same time one of the slowest flying birds we have. I have timed the heron -on several occasions, and find that in ordinary fight its wings make exactly sixty up and sixty down strokes, i. e., 120 beats per minute. In the ptero dactyl, the great extinct Saurian, the wing was enormously elongated, and in this particular instance jrobably fiviu 50 to GO beats of the wing per minute sufficed for flight. Fifty or sixty pulsa tions of the wing per minute do not in volve much wear and tear of the working parts, and I am strongly of opinion that artificial night, if once achieved, will become a ' comparatively safe means of locomotion as far as the machinery re quired is concerned.

Indians' Love for Their Children. A year or two ago, the daughter of an Indian chief, who had been educated in 1 New York, iBturned to the Reservation ! as a teacher. The tribo were roused to envy when they saw one of their own , number thus maela, to all appearance, the equal of the whites. The Indians are passionately fond of their children; and in every wigwam, fathers and mothers schemed how' they ! should gam like ad vantages for their boys and giris. o usr, at tins time, tne pro i prietorof a .traveling circus visited the Reservation with his miserable worn-out ; horses and performers, aud being struck i by the bright, eager face and fearless ' riding of a young girl of fourteen, went to her father anel offered to educate her in the East and send her home a lady if f he woidd allow her to go with him. The credulous Indian., consented. Ihe circus started m the night, and the gnl i .went with it. It was two days before tho . M . 1 ; story reached the agent and missionary, i ' who sent for the girl's father, anel told him how he had been duped by the showman, , whose purpose was undoubtedly to train her for the ring. Tho Indian stood sii- ; eut for a moment; then, raising both ' hands to heaven, he cried, j " O God, visit not my ignorance on my child 1" - :- ' ' ' ' j' Without another word, he started in pursuit no had no horse, nor money to pay his fare on the railway. He traveloel ! four hundred miles on foot before he re covered his child, uninjured, though ' worn to a skeleton from exhaustion anel hunger. ' ' , ''" .' '' " ; : '- ' ; We, to whom . education, as a rule, comes as freely as air or sunshine, can have little conception of the hungry d es- 1)air with which these copper-colored brothers in , Indian wigwams covet the opportunity which' we hold so cheaply. There is no sight more pathetic ' than a human being struggling vainly for that knowledge which will make a man of it instead of a brutq,; ;." . An Omaha teacher tells us that the children of that tribe came last winter to school, walking from two to six railes: Tho hunt last year failed,' and they had no mocassins. Their bare ' feet marked their "way on the icai and snow w ith ( bloody prints. , .w-h: n'- I , How many ' white , children would, do this of their own accord?. Two schools at the East are now open to Indian chi!- dren under the' care of tho Goverment, one at Carlisle' JPa. , and thedndustrial Training School at Hampton, Va.-f It is. the object of the Goyermont to send back these educated youths as teachers to civilize and elevate their tribes. , ... V Friends and Opponents. The Declaration of Independence was adopted against the opposition of some who had favored the cause of the colonies. They regarded it as premature and therefore inexpedient. Among these was John Dickinson, the author' of ' the 'Farmer's Letters," which 'contributed much toward the American Ke.volntion. Mr. Josiah Quincy tells us, in his re miniscences of John Adams, that he once asked the venerable ex-President an cx- planation of Dickinson's course. "He becnine discouraged," replied Hr. Adams, "and for some time was one of the most violent opposes of the Declara tion of Independence. He had . a wife and mother who , were both Quakers, and they tormented . him exceedingly, telling him that he was ruining hiinself and his country by the course he was pursuing.' . ; . "If I had had such a mother and such a wife, I believe I should have shot my self. If they had opposed me, it would have made me so very unhappy. I could not have, lived had I not pursued the course I did. "One dav in Congress, Miffiin, a rela five of Dickinson, had a dispute with him. - ! . , "Dickinson had said, in the courso of a speecn. that, m driving a team ot horses, it was necessary to rein in tho most forward and to encourage the slow and laprginfr. ' ' 'Miilim got up and said, 'Not so, Mr. President. : You had better knock the dull and lazy horses on the head and put them out of the team. ; It will go on much better without them. "The circumstances of his family and his own timiditv made Dickinson take the course he did. He wns aman of im mense property and founded a college in Pennsylvania, It is a singular fact that wfrne some of the lawyers and merchants who were members of the Continental Congress opposed the Declaration, the clerical members all supported it. The leader of the clergymen was John Witherspoon, President of Princeton College. Ho was a Scotchman, and in his youth lad led a corps of Highlanders to the Battle of Falkirk and fouaht for the Pretender. Entering with all his soul into the cause of the colonies, he became a leader in those measures which brought about a final separation between them and Great Britain. ' When the Declaration was laid before Congress a deep stillness pervaded tho hall. Every heart was awed. Wither spoon, of indomitable will and peerless courage, spoke first. - -"Mr. President," he began, in clear, bold tones, "that noble instrument on your table, which insures immortality to its author, should be subscribed this very morning by every pen in the house. "Although these gray hairs must descend into the sepulchre, I would in finitely rather they should descend thither by the hand of the executioner than desert at this crisis the sacred cause of my country." "The country is hardly ripe for such a bold movement," suggested a timid member. ' "In my judgment," shouted Withcr spoon, "we are not only ripe, but rotten." Tho names of five clergymen are found among the Declaration. They repre sented, the feelings of their brethren. Grog ia the English Navy. From time immemorial it has been a custom in the English Navy to serve a daily ration of grog, and, in stormy weather, after " reefing topsails," it used to be the fashion to double the quantity. It was this delightful break in the mo notony of a sea life that furnislied tho basis for most of the sons of Dibdin. Bat the reforming hand has struck down upon poor Jack. The temperance so cieties in England havo been depufa tionizing and petitioning the Admiralty Board, until at last that body, ia a mo ment of virtue, has decided that sailors under twenty shall have no grog; those over twenty may have it if they wish, or take out its equivalent in money, and bo served instead with chocolafe, prepared so that it can be dissolved in water. Ouo can imagine the look of disdain with which the old grog-drinking British tar would look upon the mixture of chocolate. It is certainly a somewhat singular drink to offer to a sailor, and one can not help wondering wny tea or coflee was not substituted. However, such as it is. the men in the British Navy will do well to accustom themselves to it, for the entire j abolition of grog is now only a question i of time, and a short time at that. Bos ton Herald. Antoi?te Ashley was found dead in his bed in Oswego, and the physician i who made the post-mortem testified that i his feet had been poisoned by wearing cloth slippers. He had been employed on a steamer in the West, and wore cloth slippers. His feet were often wet, and the poison by which the carpets worn coloreel soaked in through the cloth aud . ooisoned his feet. "Solid Comfort." A lady in this city nbticeel her colored "help" chewing pins and needles. The lady, thinking the amusement was n dangerous one, recommended that the jeBist, . 0 chile, " sho said. (The mistress wasjnuch younger than the servant.) "In do slabe times I had heab of trouble. I sought comfort in whisky, but dat gib me headache in de mo'nin'. Se I tried smokin'. That was de berry same. Then chawin' I tried. But that was no cood. Har'lv one mo'nin' I thought ob pins and needles.

The material called " black lend is as marvelous as India rubber, although less protean. It is 6iinply carbon, and is an enigma and a buuiU-3 if inconsistencies. Its unlikeness to lead is suggested y saying that its weight is loss than one-fourth that of lead, and that while lead fuses at a low temperature, graphite is not friable at any temperature known; on tdo contrary, no subtj,uce known surpasses it in re sisting heat. Carbon in ordinary anthra cite burns; carbon in grapLilo, refuses to burn. A crucible of graphite, buried to the top in a 'mass of burning anthracite --carlKin in carbon not only refust s to burn, but melts its metallic 'contents. The diamond, as is commonly known, is nearly pure carbon; but so is graphite. The latter is the softest substance dug from the earth; 'the diamond is the hard est substance known. Subject the dia mond to sufficient heat, and it parts wiih a mysterious something, leaving a bit 1 soft and dissimilar carbon; but it hus not ytt unless wo accept recent stories een found possible to reverse the pro cess and add to the carbon that myster ious' something. The purity of graphile is extraordinary. It is sometimes rel'nu1 until less than one-twentieth of oue per cent, of other matter than carbon is Lit merely a trace. The finest specimen of gold ever found, probably, was one .roiu the Lral Mountains, wuieh was )8.9G per cent, fine, thus having 1.01 per cent, ol foreign substance, against 0.20 per cent, in the finest graphite; or,, stating it in another way, the finest gold had more than five times, and tho aver se gold produced has twenty to fifty iuus as much inipmity as the finest Ikviuleroga graphite. Assuming that the diamond is perfectly pure carbon. this mere trace of impurity is all that separates the rare, hard, translucent, costly diamond from tho common, exces sively poit, dull, comparatively vuhielena rraphite, scarcely one-half as heavy aa th" gem; and yet the two are closely alike and almost equal in their resistance to fire.

He maintains that tho BYutem of having beds in which two per- sons sieen is aiwavs to somo extent nn- healthful. Each little child, even, should nivc its own little bed. No two children are constituted so as to require the samo kind of bed clothing and the same kind oi nodding. "Ao children or persons! can sleep under the same covering with out one being tho cause of some tliscom fort to the oilier, by movement, position or drag ef clothing. Beyond these dis- , comfcrts, however, there is the cjuestion ; of emanations from the breath. At some , time or other the breath of one of tho' sleepers must in some degree, affect tho i other; the breath is heavy, disagreeable; I it may bo so intolerable that in waking hours, when tho senses are alive to it, it would be sickening soon after a short ex- ' posure to it. Hero in bed, with the sen- ses locked up, the disagreeable odor may not be realized; but assuredly, because it is "not detected, it is not less injurious, Moreover, under the single bed system it is rendered impossible to place very ! oldand very young people to sleep to gcther. To the young this is a positivo blessing, for there is no practico moro I deleterious to them than to sleep with I the aged. The vital warmth that is so essential for their growth and develop i ment is robbed from them by the aged, and they are enfeebled at a time when hey are least ablo to bear tho enfaeblo j ment" ' ' ' !
