Prof. Alexander, of Princeton College, N J . delivered a lecture l??t night tr> a large audience, at the Smitbaontan. on Solar Eclipses In bis opening remarks the speaker aaid that while the la*n of nature were uncompromising and everywhere the same, their effect* were widely different. The animals and plants of the Western Continent were not the same as those of the Eastern; but the laws which wrought out the strange phenomena of Europe were tbe wn law* (bat caused tbe flow of Niagara, tbe swell of tbe tide* upon our shores, and the movement! of the pUneta The laws of nature were self-executing Their nature excluded tbe posaibility of transgression; and it wis in benevolence as well as Infinite wisdom that they were not made subject to human power and cat rice Tbe sun was the center of the solar system, yet It was not one of our own system lrs surface was covered with mountains, and ten thousand oceans, each larger than tbe whole of oura together; and had we started with Columbus for tbesun,ard traveled ever since at tbe rate of thirty miles per hour, we should not more thaa have reached it now And yet through this immense distance ita rays pass to us in eght minutes and aeventeen seconds. There were vast plains upon the surface of the sun. ten thousand times as large a* the Pacific ocean. In constant commotion, and as the waves swept along large spots or openings were seen The sun was surrounded by three envelopes or coverings, of daxzllng brightness, the outer of which furnished us with our light In viewing the sun It was necessary to cover all tbe rays ex ?t. a * ? .c)? >uuk iiuin iup spot vo oe oDwrvra, and in order to get true and faithful observations It was nereiaary to atation astronomers at various points. After Illustrating by the phenomena of sunrise and sunset the manner In which the shadow of an eclipse passed over the earth, the lecturer took up the appearance of the sun during an ecli|*e. It had been found that there was a bright halo or ring about the sun which was Independent of it, and which had been mistaken for the outer edge of that luminary. When the moon waa passing over the face of the sun, and had nearly hidden it from view, there appeared first a bright rim like a stream of mercury around the moon, then a little spot of light as the rays streamed through *3me valley on the moon, then a brilliant corona or halo; wbile the whole sky wore an unearthly hue of mottled green. When the moos was so near the sun that there appeared a bright riin around it, it was called an annular eclipse. There oftf-n appeared around the moon series of beads And t.-rrve t\f ? ?' ^ 1 ?1 * ?v.... ?& n>>" intervening spacei 01 darkness These were caused by the rough and jagged surface and the various degrees of temperature of the moon. There also appeared bright red spots around the moon, very beautiful and dazzling, with all th? intensity of the solar spectrum. These red spots were first observed in 1733. In 1^06 they occurred again, and though seen in 8*alem. Mass , they were invisible in Albany. In 1834 they were seen by nearly every astronomer In Oeorzla, while no person saw them in South Carolina, thus establishing the theory that in a certain condition of the atmosphere, they could not be seen. In I860, on the coast of Labrador, four red lights were visible. In IS33 a German astronomer, traveling over the wastes of Sweden, was overtaken by the shadow of that great eclipse. He deicrlbed the scene as being awfully sublime. From the elevated position of the German astronomer he could see the mighty shadows as they swept over the earth at the rate of 1,UJ0 miles an hour, while the whole heavens seemed filled with gigantic volumes of smoke that rolled away with the speed of the wind in i?uo me sbadows swept over the earth, precisely eft the waves of the ocean roll after each other. And during the ecllpte of last year, while the astronomers were in the ghastly, flickering gloom, far away over the snow they saw the sunbeams shining brightly. The fltst eclipse of which v e have any record took place o^o years before the Christian era Another appeared 310 vears before the birth of Christ, whose shadow was but 2o miles wide. From the dates of the various solar eclipses that have occurred, and the laws governing the time of their appearance, it was proved that we were aboil Ave years behind in reckoning time; and that, instead of its being the year 1:?61, It really was l??5 or 1S66.

Thi Lat* Accidk.nt at the Capitol.?We gather the following information in relation to the destructive fall of the derrick the other day from th* dome of the Capitol. It seem* that the boom of the derrick, the chain and lashing which secured the upper hoisting block, and the wire rope fall were all broken by the accident. The investigating committee express the opinion that the chain and lashing of the block or either of them were amply strong to have sustained any strain that might come upon them; that they were bevond doubt broken htf * if?m?n<lnn? i?u. -- - -^.mvumwu# JCI IUQ1 j the boom presented tbe appearance of being broken by across strain The weight which this boom whs expected to suctain was 4 ^ tons, and It was strong enough in the opinion of the committee to have borne that weight properly put upon it, it having in many Instances assisted in raising I2,<JUU lbs The evening before tbe accident an attempt was made to hoist a portion of the new apparatus with this derrick by itself, while the boom was resting on tbe blocking, whereby tbe guys and lifts were stretched and the boom left unsupported and thereby subjected to a cross strain, which cracked it. Tbe crane on the engine deck was then called Into requisition to ralae tbe frame work up and land It on tbe platform above the engine deck. Tbe loner topping lift was then shifted to tbe end of the boom, alongside tbe outer one, and tbe boom raised bv means of thra? f?nm i* in k Inches above the blocking, and secured. On the morning of tbe accident, without taking the precaution to strengthen tbe boom, which was known to have been iinured the previous evening, or to remove the blocking over which it had cracked, tbe wetgbt vtj again lifted by the derrick on top, when th< stretching of the guys and lifts again brought the boom down on to the blocking. and in this way the wetgbt was hoisted until the croas piece of tbe framework came in contact with the boom. It waa then found that tbe framework would have to be raised 3 or 3X feet higher before tbe foot of it could be hauled over the balustrade above tbe peristyle, Inside of which It was to be landed. To do thla tbe order was given to raise weight and boom together by tbe engine, and it was so done until tbe bottom of tbe frame wss wlthiu about one foot of being high enough to be pulled on tbe balustrade The hoist ng was then stopped, and tbe tackle attached lo the frame for thepurpoae of pulling it on Ou attempting to hoist further the boom broke, betnir unable In it* lnln??<t ? ....?-i , _ ? ... . v*? vvr uvwiii any longer the heavy strain upoa It. 8ig. 1 eaxcia's Coxcrrt, at Wlllards' Hotel, Uat night, wa? only measurably successful in a l>e notary point of view, but a decided hit In every other reapect.

A man named John St?rr, alias John l*i?gi H*tnc in tbe northern part of the city, was suspected by Fanning, who. In coojnrc'lon with his pvtaer. Mr. Eckloff, set to work ?o ferret out proof against him They went to detective tficer Wm A. Boss, who cave tbern such inforn<ation aa justified the procurement of a search warrant for tbe house In which Starr lived They proceed In company with Boaa to the bouse, which they searched. Hiding Implements of the burglar's trade, skeleton keys, a jimmy, Spanish nippers, and other " tools" peculiar to that profeasion. Starr was arrested and taken before a magistrate, who committed him for a further examination After being lodged in jail, Starr became alarmed at mi puBiiion, ana sent 10 the magistrate, who came, and to htm Starr revealed numerous matters implicating a number of men who have for several months past been engaged In a series of incendiary acts and burglaries. On this information warrants were placed tbe hands of officers, who have succeeded in making a number of important arrests. Edward Johnson was arrested charged by Starr with breaking open tbe store of S Samstag and robbing it of good* to tbe amonnt of one hundred dollars, and afterwards setting It on Are.

Starr was committed to answer the charge of robbing W. T Johnson, and for setting flre to the bouse of John Walsh The officers named deserve much credit for their activity In this matter.

In a judicious management of a notpowerful voice, In the airy ease of his movements, and in the wonderful manner In which he exhibits the strongest emotions of which the human heart is capable, without a particle of rant or grimace, Mr. SotLern reminds us somewhat of Bourclcault; but in efl'ectlve power of course Bourclrault does not approach him.
