Smithsobiax LscTvmi ?Last evening, Dr. * Hayes, the Arctic explorer, delivered the fourth i lecture of the regular Smithsonian course upon " "Arctic Exploration." The lecture room vraa t densely crowded, far beyond that of any lecture * thisseason, hundreds being unable toobtaln s?ats. F The exped'.tlon of Pr. Hayes, cons sting of the whooner 1'nited Sta'es. of 133 tons, and sixteen persona, left Boston in 1660. The little vessel had ' been engaged in the West India trade, and was 11 fitted up as perfectly as possible for the great 0 voyage before her. Her aides were strengthened ? * with beams and braces, her outside thickly * sheathed, and her bow protected by plates of iron one-fourth of an inch in thickness; and was so heavily laden that her deck was but eighteen i inches above the water line. The expedition c halted at the various stations in Greenland, where 2 k It provided itself with dogs, sledges, three Esqul- ' in mi hunters and an interpreter 11 Leaving the most northerly station In August, thM nnlh^l no few XI i ? i >1 elvtlle'liay and Smith's"strait" The bay?MOO ? * milt flr.m civilization) wu reached on the'2-id g ?f Angnst, In the midst of a severe storm of thick dr'v'.ng ?so?, and surrounded by icebergs in every direction, which assumed in the bright c sunlight of the succeeding day the most fantastic farms and glittering colors; some with tall spires towering up far above the waters, with lofty j arches, and long galleries through them shaped t, taemseivesinto immense gothic cathedrals; others Into Greek temples, and some into houses, ships, and even animals. One berg had an arch so large that the schooner could sail through it with ease, and was christened the '-triumphal arch " At times these mountains of ice were like immense fountains, soouting upon all sides bright glittering cascades of melted snow, and pouring torrents of water Into the sea Some of the Icebergs were two mil?>s long and two hundred and fifty feet hight above the snrfhee, while it must be . borne in mind that only one eighth of a berg is visible, its Immense weight of many millions of tons settling it far iown into the ocean. But little fle'.d ice was encountered In ontnir ? through Mc'./iUe Bay. These fields off ice" are 1 from two feet to many miles In width, with cracks anarrow openings through them, into i watch the vessel with all sail set rushes with ? Kwj force, widening the passage by her own ? Momentum. Passing Smith's Strait, and stand- t lug over to the went coast, the expedition met i t with severe winds sad floating ice, compelling , them to anchor near the shore. The gale in- r creasing, the anchor* dragged and the schooner suffered considerably, losing a portion of her bulwarks and tearing her sails. The party then i made for the east coast where they found the ice \ loose, but thick, In many placessixty feet through. <j Pressing Into this the iron sheathing was torn a off' like brown paper, the cut-water broken off, ( rudder disarranged, and the vessel lifted up al- a most entirely out of the water, while the immense pressure of the ice upon the sides of the vessel eaased her beama to squeak and groan terribly. g Winter coming on, and fearfur of being frozen t up, the expedition went into winter auarters In a c 'arge bay, which they named -'Port Hope." The schooner was fastened to thsrocks with four hawsers, banked op at th>* side wiih snow, and cov- ? ?r?d with a good roof, and was soon locked fast ' la the thickening ice. A neat little room was f fitted up in the hold, a stove put In, and everything made comfortable. Their fuel consisted of j niaiKuc cuv, wrncu, wtui iwb iirw, wu consumed at the rate of a ton per month. The! r 11 me was now occupied In hunting and scientific observations; the former proving so successful a/to * furnish them with one hundred deer before winter was fairly upon them, besides this thev supplied themselves with plenty of rabbits, foxes and ptharmigans, the latter a species of grouse. They also captured one bear. Walrus, white whales, deer, foxes, Ac , are In abundance, and were a well organized enterprising company to go out there they could In one year procure t sufficient cargo to defray the expenses of all the . Arctic expeditions fitted out from tbe Un'ted Sates At Port Hope the expedition bailt a small observatory in which they placed their Instruments for taking observations,and making experiments. These Instruments were furnished by Prof. I Bacbe of the Coast Survey. Near the observatory they constructed a shelter for the thermometers. None of tbe observations made have been reduced. The winter proved milder than the two preceding and was very stormy. March was the coldest month, the lowest point Indicated by thethermo- \ meter x t.ng <56 degrees below zero While here \ Dr. Ha^ws surveyed aa Immense glacier, previ- \ ously discovered by Dr Kane, ana it was found J that the mountain of Ice had moved 94 feet in r bmitha It wu ismimImI h? ? steps rut la the ice with their axes to a height n of 5000 feet above the level of the sea, fifty ; nc'les la the Interior. This portion of Greenland la all Ice, except the I prominent headlands. The largest glacier foond i by Dr. Kane was at the head of Smith's Strait, ' and was 60 miles long and 300 feet high. This was named Humboldt glacier The glaciers are really frosen rivers, found in the valleys of Greenland, and moving towards the sea at different degrees of speed, according to the steepness of tfas declivity down which they move?some traveling SOO lest a yeer. As tt slides down along the boC . torn of the sen until It gets into water of iaSclent 1 depth to fioat tt, the sun and water detach huge * ftsg?ts, which form the icebergs: and as the glnatws are of congealed snow, Iks bergs are of course always fresh, which Is not the case with e tae floating ice. The sua set on the 20th of October and by the 1st of November It was getting qalte dark, though . they could see to travel for five or six hours at the ! period of noonday.
