ATIU9I. ATMOSPHERIC CLirTRlCITT. Prof Henry jrave an exceedingly interesting lecture in Aquidneck Hall. Newport. Rhode Island, on atuio?pberie electricity. He first stated the many theories which from time to time have been given relating to the origin or ?oure? of the subtle fluid or element. It had be?n suppose'I to be produced bj the friction of the current* of air in motion: it had aim been attributed to growing vegetation; also to evaporation It wu well known that boiling salt water produced electricity Steam blown off from a locomotive was a scarce of electricity; but it was frictional. I'pon the whole the oriirin ,.f atmosDherie electricitv was not ton olusively ascertained There is a theory that the atmosphere is not electrical p*r **, but only by induction; that the earth is electric ami the air only electric under certain condition!). This wad 1'elcber'a theory. It had been adopted by m>iae European physicists, t and he nasi say that it had not received the attention it deserved The late Dr Hare, of Philadelphia, entertained a similar theory? that tlte earth was plus electrical and the air minus. It was certain that the amount of electricity in the air varied with the amount of vapor r> resent. On clear, drv. cloudless davs there ww but little ek ricitj to be detected by the electronoineterj; aud it ?u onlj when we had masses of vapor in the form of clouds that there were electrical discharges. If a polished in>a rod, two or three feet in length, with a Coltshed brass or iron ball at both ends, be eld horinntally. there will be no sign of electricity >u the rod, but ,i it be held verti ctlly. it instantly becoincs electrical. The end nearest the earth will be plus electrical, and the upper end minus. If the rod be held near the ground, and then raised as high a* tt tnan can rcach, ;he electronometer indicates a charge of eloctrual condition ; when near the ground it U most electrical. 1'he electronometer at the Smithsonian Institute showed great changes in a few feet elevation. It had been demonstrated that the electricity was repelled by the atoms of matter composing the earth inio the air. He used the word repelled as beet expressing the idea It had also been demonstrated that an atom of elecricity at the surface of the globe acted in concert with the globe itself in repelling a second atom of electricity outside the first. The repelling power was inversely as the square of the distance Prof. Henry then gave the phenomena of exnli.jitra 4# r?. >ar\K ar i n a 1 t ricitr J'lvrif v KTU|V^|/UVIIV VIWVSIVIVJ , WHIT CACHES A THIMDER STORM. No thuuier storm can occur until there are two layers of clouds. The electricity is carried into the air by the misses of vapor going up from the earth. Vapor rising from the earth always carries more or less electricity with it. He had ascertained these and other interesting y facts from Mr. Wise, the balloonist, with whom he had been in correspondence, and who had undertaken experiments Mr Wise said that in passing through a thunder storm, he was always first carried through a dense cloud into open space, with .1 second cloud hanging above hiin. Currents of air moved between the cloudy layers in direction frequently transverse to the current below the lower cloud He had repentedly been carried along by this transverse current, and when npon fining down through the lower cloud, he had again been caught By the ascending current and whirled up again. Between the two clouds there were constant flashes of lightning from the upper to the lower. 1 uew aasnes were aoi explosive ine heat lightning so often wen is the electricity of the upper cloud descending to the lower. The explosive discharge* are always between the lower cloud and the earth Between the two cloud* b hi I is formed. The upper cloud is nlways less den*e than the lower, and always 1 j&s electrical. A thunder storm aB it mored across the country war sometimes constantly renewed by th<5 musses of vapor constantly ascending and carrying ap electricity from the earth in diffused particles tj he returned in explosive discharges. New vapor carried up new electricity The French physicists thought that a thunder cloud might be disarmed by running up numerous points ; it might be disarmed or rendered harmless for a single locality, but as the clouds passed on new electricity would be sent up, so that to wholly disarm the thunder was impossible, for he had new resources always at command. BIXOCCLAR VISIOK. Tbe section of physics was much interested by a lecture from Prof. William B Rogers, giving some experiments and infeiences in regard to binocular vision. He combatted with great earnestness and warmth the theory of Sir David Krewster. that in the vidian eye8 combine the picture.* of the object before it which are made a pan the retina, point by point. This striking fact wan mated. Let an object be held in the band and looked at attentively for a minute, and the eyes then directed to a distant wall or screen, the room being darkened. On el??sing one eye, an image of the object is seen inclined iu one direction ; on closing the other, it is seen inclined in an opposite direc tion, showing that each eye had received upon its retina an independent impression or picture. On looking with both eyes, the two pictures unite, and the object is seen projected upon the screen. This idea of the independent action of th? two ejas was verified by showing thai t Ka tit I h? ? r s* r *? kib> 11 rvo / m n Km nrA.inAa/4 II UV v U W * V* ??v k <rwS uvvvv^v V?u WV ^ I VU MVVU bj passtng a card rapidly back and forth over tbe surface of the sierreograph, so that but one of the twin pictures is seen at any given instant; the two are united iuto one just the same as with the instrument, and it is seen distinctly projected. Thus it appears that the mind does much of the work Attributed to the retina.

In corroboration of the interesting views presented, Leigh Hunt mentioned a curious instance of " seeing , doable.** Looking through a latice at a bam, a in the front of whioh win an open door, he saw distinctly two doors tea or fif.een feet apart, and his eyes persisted in seeing two.

Animals exist according to general laws, and tbey must be classed accordingly. Then he would have the zones represented, so that the student pacing from the animals of the Arctic regions to the tropics would see that there was a cosmopolitan relation between them all. He would hare rooms also occupied by animals of the 8ilurinn age by themselves, the devonians, the trianic, the cretaceous of each period by themselres. By this arrangement it would be is easy for the student to classify the animals of the put as the animals of the present. lie had no doubt that soon the Cambridge Mu*eum would take first rank. lie had received means as ample as could be well used, and the specimens were accumulating with wonderful rapidity.

TrnBLA, July 18, 1S60 Pir : As observations of the eclipse by diffa r. i n (vaPdAtta in J l/\/* all t />a await V? a tn kvivMW pviouuc in uiuoicui ivuaiiuco mil UT3 IU" teresting. and may be useful, I seed you the following, made at this place. I took my station on a hill nearly west of the town, at the distance of above two miles. Below me was the extensive plain, or rather slope, descending towards the Kbro, with Tudela at ita lower edge upon the river. This slope is partly enclosed by brown hills of naked clay and gravel, and presents the appearance of a vast waste, the relic of some great deluge, studded with yellow corn-fields, light green vineyards and dark geen woods, which beoorne thieker towards the river. I bad ascended several hills in search of a station, and before I began to ascend the last, at about nine minutes past two, by London time, I could distinctly perceive, by the reflection from the gi v/uiiu ui inr rmj, mat iuo uiimaucj UI LUC gun wu diminished. 1 took my statiuu on tho top at twenty-nine minutes past two o'clock, near to a mound of stones, adorned with a black veil. Beyond, the gravelly landscape opened out in the direction of the flow of the Ebro. The brown hills surrounding the valley were backed by the higher mountains rising one behind another. some of them very distant. The conical hilis were conspicuous in the extreme distance to the north northwest, and the famous hill of San Moncayo, a gigantio mass, bound* i tne prospect to the south, at a distance of 25 miles Thia* mountain has been chosen as a principal station by the astronomers. From Tudelu its summit appeared during the whole eclipse to be enveloped in clouds. A bauk of cumulous clouds was conspicuous beyond Tudela, rising 20 deg. in the distant horizon, and anotner to tfce nortnea.?t. Utherwise tno sky waa clear and bright, and almost, cloudless. Shortly after 3 o'clock it became evident that the total eclipse was approaching from the northwest. At three minutes pist three the sky and the horizon in that direction were rapidly becoming dark, while (he bright glow uf sunihine was yet unchanged towards the wmtheait. At four minutes past three an unearthly, ghastly g ow, once seen never to be forgotten, ooverod the whole scene, and was must evident upon the gravelly ground at my feet. The light now rapidly decreased. But, with the exception of this glow, which was very conspicuous upon the clay hill, I could dee no particular change of color in the trees or landscape. At fit'** inimitAa naaf 'A tKo iraitApn Knrifnn < ? U ' ^ kU < ? IVS Y* ? w VUV ?? V" iVf| II uvi IfeVU wad lost in darkness, and the conical hills to the north-northwest were invisible, while ths clouds toward the east sent forth a bright glow of light froiu the sun still shining on their fronts At this moment bright waving lines of light flickered one after another over the ground parallel to my line of sight with the ?un. On looking upward from these I found that the sun had already disappeared,and that 1 had missed the formation of the corona. The black circle of the moon was already surrounded by this crown of glory; two stars shone brightly a few degrees from the sun, and so niM.irnifu*ftnt wax th? fur I? ahnTA fin if!n riou* the spectacle below, that I could not help look in/ for a few moments from the one to the other. A bright light, I think of a greenish yellow color, skirted the horiiontal sky. ami the banks of cumuli shone with a brilliant glow. The darkness was not intense ; the light from the eorona and the distant refractions far surpassed the brightest moonlight. It would have been easy to read the smalLeet ?yp?. 1 now locked at the corona It was not of uniform breadth, but generally about half the moon's diameter, while long beams of light issued forth in several directions. The longest, about 10 deg below the east side of the sun, was considerably longer than the moon's diameter, if I can trust my memory, after the totality was past. The beam next in length wae not far from the lowest point of the sun's vertical diameter, a few degrees to the west, and this beam, as it approached the sun. appeared to curve upward, and to join another beam which waa thrown off about 45 deg. below the eastern edge of theaun. For a few momenta ihese two beama formed a distinct oroscent, with its eonvex edge nearly touching the aun; otherwise the beams remained unohanged during the total eclipse; but this crescent was not evident during the whole time. Another of the longer beams wu thrown off from a point about 30 deg. east of the top of the vertical diameter. I also observed within the halo 3 darker beams, much shorter than the breadth of the corona. One of these issued from the central poiut of the orescent I have described. The other two were, I believe, clear ot the top of the eastern edge, but of this I speak from recollection. and not with confidence. While I was observing these beams the edge of the sun suddenly reappeared, about Si minutes past 3, and the first instantaneous burst of returning light was very impressive. I now observed the disappearance of the oor ona, and can aay witn connaence mat it did not disappear, bat was gradoallj rendered invisible by the increasing intensity of the suc't light. I could perceive it gradoally diminishing in breadth, till I could do longer observe the tan without protection to the eyes The long rays disappeared Erst. I now looked again to the south- The northwest horiaon was glowing with light, and to the southeast the cloud bank beyond Tudela was scarcely risible. The total eclipse was passing in that direction; the clouds presently booame invisible, and remained so daring about six minutes, when they gradoally reappeared. The rapid inerease or darknees to 'he southeast, and that of returning light to (fee northwest, were very evident; otherwise I perceived no line of shadow upon the earth's surface. Though much oooupied with theee oh?ervatious, the impression prodaoed by the total eolipoe is one whieh can never be effaced from the mind.
