During the first j-eriod (prior to the com
mencement ot the Christian Kra) the annual
product of tbe precious metals was about
two millions of dollars , during the second
period (from the commencement of the
Christian Kra to the diovcry of America)
It was three millions , during tho third
period (three hundred tnd hlty years, to the
cxtenivc working of the Kusian minc) it
attained to twentt-Cvc millions , during the
decade immcdhtcly succeeding, (1843 to
1852) it was one hundred and tbirty-six
millions : and since the ouadrurdo discover?
of the California, Australia and Xew Zea
land gold mine, and the Nevada silver
mines, (1853 to 167,) it has averaged two
hundred and wxtv-two millions ot dollars,
The annual product of the precious metals
attained its acme in 1853, when it was two
hundred and eighty-five millions ul dollar".
Tbe increased punrily from New Zealand and
the Pacific flopc of North America, has not
offset tbe partial exhaustion of the California

has been greater during the la-1 twenty

There is now a liasonable probability tha
tofore many weeks elapse Clcojutra's
Needle w ill he en route for England. '1 he
monedith has tocn handed over to Mr.
Dixon's agent, whoso men have commenced
the necessary work for its removal. I in
formed you'on the -Oth of April that Mr.
Carter, Mr. Dixon's agent, had arrived
here, and had obtained from Mr. Dcmctrio,
the owner of the ground on which the
obcli-k lies buried in the sand, a promise of
ermis-sion to remove it, provided the Egypt
ian Government and the Kritish Consul
General authorized Mr. Carter to take pew
session. A document to this effect having
been obtained at Cairo, Mr. Dcmctrio, al
though he considers he has a pecuniary
claim against the Epjptian Government in
rcspe'Ct of the otolisk, lias handed over ab
solute possession to Mr. Carter on behalf of
Mr. Dixon and the British nation. It is
only fair to llr. Dcmctrio, who Is him veil an
eminent antiquarian, to explain why there
has been Fome little delay and diplomacy on
his part. Many years ago tho land on which
the Needle lies was sold by the Egyptian
Government to an Italian, who afterwards
Mld it to Mr. Demctno. In the pale no
conditions wc:e made as to the obelisk, but
when Mr. Dcmctrio wished to build on the
the land in question, the Egyptian Govern
ment stepped in and said No ; you must
not remote, tho obcli-k, which we have
given to the British Government. As the
British Government did not remove it, the
land has been for years rendered valueless to
Mr. Dcmctrio. Morally, therefore, Mr.
Dcmctrio scenis to be entitled to compensa
tion from someone but as he is unable to
establish a legal claim against the Egyptian
(otcrnmcnt (for he has tried and tailed),
and dots not rctend to any against the
British Government, the monument ha.s tocn
graciously given up. The Needle, is C'J
feet long and $ fect njuarc not uniformity,
but at the bac. It weighs atout 220 tons,
and lies in the sand 15 lect above high-water
line. To get this mass safely into the
sea end across the sea, it is intended to build
up around it on shoro a cjllndircal iron cac
or hip, and then to roll the entire mass,
nearly 2(10 tons, into the Mediterranean,
and when tho necessary ballasting and addi
tions have been made to the ship in dry
dock, to have her towed to England. The
iron vessel is now being made at tho Thames
IronWorks, und when rtady will to sent
out here f icccs, to to built around the eito-li-k,
under tho superintendence ol Mr.
Waynman Dixon, brother to Mr. John
Dixon the enterprising designer and con
tractor, lhe vessel must be considerably
longer than the e.bclisk.toiiiuso ol the shaio
of the stone. It will be'.'- feet long and
15 fect in diameter, with plates 3-8 inch
thick. It will to divided into nine water
tight compartments hy eight bulkheads,
total weight of iron seventy-lite tons. To
lift the end of the etolisk jacks of immense
power will have to to sent from Engl end,
and after tho cylinder is buiit tremendous
tackle to roll it into the sea. It will float
in nine feet of water, and U reach the
depth it must to rolled 400 feet. Once
utlo.it and iu duck it will to fitted with bilge
ketds, rudder and steering gear It will to
cutter rigged, with ono mast ami two sail-,
and will bate a deck-house for Mr. Carter
who will have charge of it on the voyage,
fr, although it will be in tuw of u sttamer,
it will bo in every reject a thip, and able
to take care for itself for a time in case of
uccidciit or breaking away from the tgw
lincs, which arc to to of siccl wire- There
will be four or fito men on board to make
.sail, pump bilge-water, trim lights and make
feignals in case of need. In the opinion of
eminent engineers the plan proioscd is ad
mirably add pled fur tho work to to done,
and Mr. Dixon's confidence is shown in the
fact that should he fail to complete his work
he will receive nothing for outlay and
trouble. If, however, the undertaking is a
micccm, the entire cxisjisc will to torno by
Mr Erasmus ikm, tho eminent surgeon
Imuicnsc caro and nicety will have to to ex

and rigidity , the otolisk must to so packed,
forming with tho iron e-ylinder one sdid mass,
as to moid any strain from the roll in ir into
thce-a. or from the working of the ship
afterward. I presume the um-t anxieuis

Among ether results of the Arctic expedi

tained with reference to the question of total
abstinence. Tho abstainers who went ont
with the expedition were six, viz: William
M alloy, Adam Ales, William (love. Joiner,
and (.elf, of the Alert, nud Henry Cetty of the
Thero wero two or threo other seamen who
joined the temperanco cause during tbe com
mission, anil it is only lair to state that the
novices su tiered from seutvty like the rest of
mo crew, juiioy was not emplojed on any
long journeys, but was repeatedly out with
the supiorting parties. He states that the
sleighing parties of tho Alert, suffered great
er privations than those trom tho sister ship.
They had pushed tooud tho limit ot aui
niallileaud their supplies of reindeers and
musk ox wero soou exhausted. They were
consequently obliged to subsist entirely uinm
ship's stores, and this enforced abstinence
from animal food, mtdo them in a special de
gree susceptible to scurvy. On the termina
tion of the sleighing duties at tho end of
Jnly, the abstainers tonnd that they had sur
passed tho remainder of the Alert's crew in
the number of day's sleighing performed.

The ratboloj of Drunkenness
Tho nineteenth annual report of Dr.
Albert Day. Superintendent of the Wash-
ingtunitiu Hume, ol lioston.di-cussci at soma
length the patholocyof drunkenness. l)r.
Day states that tho line of demarcation is
as ct obucure between tho responsibility
and irrespuosihiliiy of the inebriate. He
alarms his Deiiti that inebriety is trie result
ot insane propensities more or less devel
oped, and insanity and inebriety aro round
interuutcn in morbid mental development.
He discusses chronic alcoholism or ebn-b-ity,
of which hallucination is the fir-t
symptom, and gives many cases in illustra
tion of tho mental diseases superinduced by
the us oT alcohol, tdten in iiutntilits th-it
wuuld not to regnrded as immoderate, llo
n-gaids the man as luttunate who. when
drmkinc. leiscs tbe powrrol locomotion, as
Ids eipposite will drink and walk erect until
he sues crazy, never in the common ae
ccptation ol tbe term being drunk. A
drunkard may begin to drink because ho
has the nervous condition necessary for in
sanity, and in seeking to relieve his depres
sion set lire to a train of ncrvo di-orxanizi-tioti.
He thinks that excesses uro to to re
garded in the light ol sjuiptoius, rather
than causes. As the result ot his observa
tion ho btBrnis the follow ing propositions :
I. The habit ol drinking to produce men
tal ease is iniit destructive, and most liopo
Icsh of reform
ij Alcohol in cxcesi produces changes in
the intt rnal organ, ilTVcting changes which
rtnde-r u cure ejuite impossible.
II. Alcohol atfects the circulation, increas
ing tho action of the heart and dilating the
terminal blood ves-scK
1. It ioereusts tho blood supply to the
I rain, producing tho-o mental states which
develop marked brain diseases.
5 Ah'ohol in all its I or oi s N injurious to
the voting; it arrets muscular and mental
ti Alcohol is not ncecrarv to sustain
7. Hnbits of intoxication aro Mimttlmrs
due tu a plis!cnl condition, viz u difi-
ciencv of blood in tho brain.
H. Alcohol causes the loss ed heat, thus
rendering thu b..dy moro susccptiblo to cold,
and tor this reason alcohol is never used by
thoso visiiing the high latitude".
i. A Icohol w ben taken into tho system at
fust mms to g'uu energy, but it is only at
thetxpensuo! tho reserve vital force. The
person whii ucs alcohol for tho purpevoof
httmulating himself to a greater mental and
physical exertion, will sooner or later be
come bankrupt in vital force. Having spent
hi- capital aud squandered tho power of rc- .
cupcration his min is near at hand.
