Y -n *l| & tT i WuHmoTOH fcrurrftic Associatioh.?Last night the Washington Scientific Association held their Cnl public meetln/, at the room* of the Yean* Men's Christian Association Papers wwe read upon the subject of the Gulf fctresm, aad 'he r'se and Ml of the water* of Lake Superior, fey Rev. C W. Dealton and J. Dlsturnell. Mr Denlson brleflj noticed the principal charseterlsticsof the Gnlf Stream; and after criticising the theories of Its originating from the iuinence of the Mlaftlnalppl and trade winds of the Gulf, proceeded to argue that It was of sjbWraneous origin; adducing In evtdeaoe the fallowing farts The existence of anhtrrranMa rtrMmi. aa mtab ) llshed by the rivers In Mammoth C?ve and the glacier* In leelaixf; the similarity of the chemical 1 properties of th? water with theses In the vicinity of toe volcanic eruptions of Vesuvius; the similarity of Its deformed f sh with those found In the - Mammoth Cave; the existence of sedges, roots and herbs not found anywhere on the western hemisphere; and its peculiar eddies and sulphurous vapors. Its sources are supplied, be argued, from the Mediterranean, as a current equally strong and large flows continually In from the Atlantic, thtonch the Straits of Gibraltar, besides the Nile snd ether large rivers, while there Is no visible outlet. He believed that the waters of the Med1 Iterranean and Caspian sea found their way t through subterranean passages until they poured out on the American coast, forming this mjrsterlouacjrrent. I Mr DisturneH treated briefly upon tbe phe g nomcm 01 me -ise ana nil 01 me waters or Lake r Superior, attributing it to the great fill of rain r aad mow In that region Theae watera bare an f average rite and fall of twenty-eight Inches annually; sometimes receding from tha shore with great velocity, and returning again with eq'ial * force. Upon one occasion they receded ao as tb * almost drain the bed of the rivers flowing into * the southern pcrtion, and a party availing them elves of the opportunity of procuring pebbles * and shells, nearly loat their lives by the sudden , return of the water. > Rbv.

I heard htm rreach a few evenings since, in one of tbe principal Methodist Churches In this city, and was greatly pleased with the discourse, portraying as it dla, to vivid colors, the felicity of the redeemed in the world of light.
