Gillla, and the lecturer, Prof. Alexander, the who was appointed to the responsible position of tha superintendent of the expedition. This party did No wot belong to the Coast Survey. Their expenses hoi were defrayed by Government, but they received | no compensation aside from the additional scien- an< tific facts obtained, and the sublime spectacle of a as ; total eclipse The point at which tbey made their of observations waa sb?ut AO degrees of North latl- his ??ide As tbey sailed along at a distance of about 50 miles from the shore, tbey could distinctly see can the stupendous wall of barren mountains towering up til the'r grandeur and desolation, looking J precisely as though they were of est Iron. Not a *' < tree was to be seen upon the dreary wastes. Hut *hi a few small stunted plants and a little clinging !nS moss was all that relieved the barrenness of the 'ai bills, while here and there patches of snow inf tretched away upon the cliffs. te* The aven"^ bigbtof these mountains was about P" I.CCO feet. There were no vallles ncr entrances to 1 for a but the chain seemed to be a sucres- (>si sior of l iyers. which overlapped each other and e r rSRi-rved almost u uniform altitude. Along the '''e twae there rested a dark impenetrable bed of ever sleeping mists which, chilled and condensed by the concealing influences of the mountain range, *rn never lifted their dreary folds. No rainbow hung j"oi ?*bout it; no ray of light crept through the dreary ^loom; no friendly harbor stretched out itsshelter- v,11 tui'ini to protect them from the biting blasts j ^ Ar.d drifting seas; but one unbroken, rock-bound roast, gi rt with eternal mists, repelled them while " ( the sounding line now marked the warning shallows ar>d then plunged down into the cbasics of 1 the ocean bed Here the party began to fear that they would be unable to accomplish their errand? Pal 13-st from the difficulty in lanaing, and next the Jou raist, waich would prevent their liking any ob- ^ servation. They filially f>und an inlet, Into which they sailed, ana got ceh'.nd the mist, where It wa.s bright and clear, when tLey found that the J*1 apparent difficulty which had caused the most ho| ineaslness was really a convenience. The thick- ' 81 "ness of the mists prevented the keen winds from rJr"' striking them very hard, and they were enabled un to keep very comfortable behind the screen; while Pa row and then, as the blast swept up against the rocks, the mists would tower up above the cliffs and look in upon them, and then sink back like a serpent despoiled of its prey. Ilavtnrr th?lr f?nta ??/*>! man Vs/1 hlfl CP particular duty assigned him. One or two were !'n appointed to look for tb? first approach of the *' moon; auoth?r to announce its contact with the I rays of the ?uu; three to note the time of contact, im o ih-t if the attention of one was attracted two thi would remain; one to call the seconds from the de chronometer: another to call the minutes; others Gr ready to let fly the screen upon the photographic de apparatus, so as to catch the first picture of the Hi eclipse; others with telescopes searching for the planets only seen in total eclipses; others, shut in ga a dark room, were waiting to catch the first change th vt the sua'? shadow upon paper: others to mark pr the motion of the magnetic needle; others to note an the changes of the moon; and the engineer of the tit ship was stat) r.ed upon the hill to mark the ha changes of the wind and temperature, while the K seamen and sub-otfi'^r* were on board tbe?hip pmaklng such observations as were in their power b] Here was a beautiful Illustration of fsith in the deductions of science Here was a party of men to eollccted upon the barren wastes of Labrador, two thousand miles awav from civilization, each with bit particular dnty assigned him. anxiously awaittng the appointed minute when the most sublime ^ phenomenon of nature wii to transpire When J)1 the moon first touched the sun it presented a rough ' ' Jigged edge, and the telescope bad hardly re- r* vealed the contact tefore the bright ra\s vanished, * and a sLadow like the early twilight spread over R! tue earth, which darkened with great rapidity, w until the sun seemed entirely consumed and extlnguisbed. Just as the moon struck the sun, and *.r the first shadow fell upon the (.arty, the song of a J1 bird trilled out cleSr and distinct, like the notes nf a skv-lark, and then all wasslleutas the grave. w ?intil tbe first glittering edge of the sun peeped * out from behind the moon, when those strange mysterious notes a tain rang out on the srillaess of " the scene. One was stationed to watch for the shadow, who described !t as a vast column sweeping along ^ with streaks down its sides like au immense rain a, cloud, with the rata streaming down In the dis- ^ Unce Just in the mumt Important *ta_e of the ^ e^llpae, when the sun was completely bidden by v IKa nirnn /I r V ri a atari, r-?# > s? *< .mm tin W<r A V> ?uc un'i'M. a vivuu?

Whil^ they n were in the center of the dark shadow they could b see a blush of light far away over the plains, s| while overhead the heavens were of a dull copper ? color. Something of an idei of the strength of a the sun's light may be Inferred from the fact that when the first delicate spot of the sun was revealed by the telescope, the light tt is tied out rts bright " as that of a full moon The edge of the moon r; was surrounded by a brilliant halo and vivid red B< spots. The effect of t:,e eclipse upon the mag- d nettc ne^le was singular. When the nioon first 1 pa-sed before the sun the motions of the needle c were very violeut, oscillating upon its nivot with 1 great velocity, and describing a large arc. When the aun waa completely hidden it waa hardly perceptible, but aa the atadow paased off it renewed i'a vibrations, unm the shadow waa entirely gone. wht-a it returned ita uaual station. The wind and temperature waa hirdly affected at all. From their a'atlo.i the shadow swept acrcsa to j; irope, crossing Spain near th- Peninsula, and c?reer:u!j across Africa near the Red Sea, was lost on the untrodden plains of Kthiup'a The Pjsba of tlgypt had ar. astronomer stationed in E hio;va, woo gave a very interesting and important account of it* appearance at that place. The lector-r then described the icebergs of the l' .lar sers but our linMb'd space will not admit of publishing bis retcarks in closing his lecture be referred to the triumphs achieved by the United States Coast Survey, and the rapid march of science under the fostering care or our Republic.

The committee of seven, as near as we can < lasalfv the gentlemen composing it, (and we ] ope they will pardon ua if we do not exactly hit selr positions in thene changing times.) consisted f two straight-out democrats, one Douglas demerit. one independent democrat, one old line rhig, one American, and one anti-democrat, (by , nti-democrat we do not mean republican, be it nderatood ) The committee having returned, reported a srie* of resolutions, which were read by Mr. 'enney, as follow*: Rtsolvd, by the citizens of Georgetown, in own meeting assembled, that we can never adait the rl^ht of any^tate to secede from the Jnion; and that the word secession is used to ?>nraptbe unwary who might shrink from rebellion nd revolution. a. Resolved, That revolution should never be ittempted until all peaceable remedies are ex:rusted; and that it is unbecoming the dignity of i sensime people, ana contrary wciviuzation ana Christianity, to plunge any country into tbe borors of a clvtl war, If Ft can by any means be hon>rably avoid d. 3. Resulted, That we heartily approve the Critenden proposition as a basis of adjustment of tbe oatioiial difficulties 4 Resolved, That we have a firm and unwaverng attachment to the y?Ion under whoso beneficent government this country has enjoyed unparlilnled prosperity and attained a rank among the nations of the earth, In the brief period of its existence, unknown In the history of the world 5. hi solved, That the refttsal of the st-ced ng States, Iii their conventions, to submit their acts 1*1 IUC prvpir, ia I/Uuwai Jf ?w tuv ^ciuui auu nf our free institutions; and that we consider tbe word* of Websttr as an axiom: ''That Liberty and Union are^ow and forever, one and inseparable " ft. Kttomd, That we owe a higher allegiance to our country than to anv party platform, and while we represent all political parties, we earnestly Invoke the Senators and Representatives In Congress to Kink at this time partisan prejudice for the sake of tbe Union [It Is understood that the resolutions were ap proved by all tbe member* of tbe Committee except Menri Kid well and Pickrell, and tbat they were oppowd only to the first one, having modilied the fifth one ao a* to bring it nearer their view*. Tbe sixth resolution was added at the request of these gentlemen, and it was their wish to substitute tbat tingle one for tbe whole series ] After reading the resolutions, Mr. Tenney stated that some of the resolutions were not adopted unanimously; tbat the minority though strong in Intellect, were weak In number. He would submit the resolutions without debate. Mr Thomas moved tbat tbe question be taken on the adoption of tbe whole kerles. Amid cries for question and calls for Mr. Ma gruder, tbat gentleman came rorwara, but decllned speaking, ?o tbat a vote might be had on the resolution!. Cries of (joddard ' Goddard were heard Mr Goddard came forward and spoke eloquently and patriotically for several minutes, spying that no people were more strongly Interest* d In I tbe perpetuity of tbe Union than the people of the D.strict, and that if dissolution Is consummated Washington would not be the capital of either a Northern or Southern Corfrderacy. It was a tlm?* to sink all party feeling and make some sacrifices for the sake of our common country, and be announced himself as In favor of the Union of tbe States under all circumstance! He was warmly applauded. Mr. Samuel Cropley wanted tbe vote taken on each resolution separately. _ Mr.Tenney read the first resolution ?

[Hisses and applause ] This bad clearly degenerated Into a political meeting, and if tbe diso derly crowd could not be controlled, be moved tbe meeting now adjourn. [Mr. D resinned hit wat amid a perfect storm or uproar ] Mr Magruder hoped the motion would be withdrawn. He wai satisfied tbat more than nine tenths of thoae present were U?lon men and Uw-and ordt-r men It was natural some excitement should prevail. Mr. Deeble withdrew his motion, threatening to renew it if the disorder prevailed. Mr. Bronaugh having prepared his amendment to tbe first resolution read it, as follows : " But while we oppose seceaion as nnconatltutlonal, we equally oppose coercion ?s incompatible with the pint of our Institution.! " Prom this time out such disorder prevailed that It was hard work to report anythhig. Mr Tenney warmly opposed the amendment, and moved to lay It on the tabic, and In answer to a question propounded by Mr. Stake, asked If General Jackson was right la 1839 Mr. Bronaugh defined bis position.
