The result proved faf the reverse, and gave to science the benefit Of Dr. Hafefc' observations *itb the pendulum^ (by i woicn me relative rorce or gravity wu determined,) and on the tides, of the atmosphere, direction of the wind, temperature, kc With regard tothe latter, a new theory wa? established, relative to the Intoence of 'be moon upon It. At fall moon It Was found the cold was most Intense This phenomenon was mo;- ,insular from the fact tjja\ ;ae mdot, wllii other planets, Truect the lieat of the sun| but it Watiubse^aentlv demonstrated that the reflected heat settee W dissipate the vapors and cloud* of the atmosphere, thereby permitting the warmth of the earth to tscend. Thekheervatlbna of Wane, MeCltntock, and Hayes were being worked out and discussed minutely here In America, but In England nothing but the popular expositions had ever been elven put, *o tbit tfce Vn?Vjd ?? ?> will er<oy th? distinction of presenting to the scientific world the moat elaborate and reliable charts and descriptions of tbe Polar regions. Dr. Hayes, after bnefiy reviewing bis previous lecture, took aphis narrative where tbe party were about to leave their winter quarters. Want of space will not sdmtt of giving more than a very brief outline of his absorbing Lecture. Tbe sun row to theqi on the 10th of February, and they tfcefre soon, ready for * trip over the Ice. On the l?th of March, Br Hayes, accompanied by two persons with sledges and dogs, set out on an expedition northward. They took with them 100 pounds of provisions, consisting of defalcated beef and potatoes, and a supply of necessaries, which. Including extra clothing, lamb, bufiaio robes, A.c., did not exceed twenty-five pounds Traveling over the Ice aa rapidly aa possible, and upon one occasion breaking through Into the aea with the thermometer at thirty degrees below zero, tbev reached the old winter quarters of Dr. Kane. Nothing was found of the wreck of the Advance save a piece of board, and a hugs Iceberg rested where the vessel's ruined hulk had been left. The pyramid erected over the grave of some of Dr. Kane's party had been destroyed, and the records burled there," carried off by the Esquimaux In search of plunder Upon returning to his veasel Dr Hayes found all / fnr Si itAft an/1 Ipuvino thsro nossniis In charge of the schooner, with eleven companions, left their winter quarters on the 4th of April, 1661, in the midst of gaiety and lively mirth Two of the party managed the sledges, and the remaining ten dragged the boat upon a sled. Their colors was a white flag with a crimson star in the center, and the motto ' Flud a way, or make a W?." They also took with them a small national flag which had accompanied a southern exploring party to the most extremt point of discovery, and which, in visiting the northern regions, had floated over more territory than any other flag In existence This is now in tbe possession of Mr. Henry Grinnell. In tbe first nine hours they traveled 22 miles, but afterwards they met with so many obstacles >um tury viiiciiiuti uiu nut citccu umi a mile 1 day. Each day was divided Into eight hours tor traveling, ten hours for sleep, and the remainder of the time spent at their meals, lunches, Ac. At night, their house was prepared by digging a pit in the snow four feet deep and eighteen by seven feet square, across which two poles were placed, and on the*e the sled Over this was spread a canvas covering, and the whole buried to the depth of two or three feet with snow. India rubber cloth, buffalo robes and blankets were spread upon the floor, upon wbtch the party stretched themselves, each man's feet lying alongside his neighbor's head. These houses would soon become warm and comfortable, sometimes attaining a degree of temperature as algh as 34 deg above zero, wane it via many degree* below outside. The atmosphere never became Impure In these houses, as all impurities are absorbed by the snow, and the air constantly kept fresh and wholesome After traveling three weeks lathis manner, it was found impossible for the whole party to proceed further, and all were sent back save three persons,who pushed on with Dr Hayes. In fourteen days only forty miles were made, so bad was the traveling, and It finally became necessary to carry on half their provisions, Ac., to a point on their route on one day, build their hou?e, and the next day return for the remainder, and after spendiug the seoond night at the snme place, proceed again in a similar tedious and wearisome manner. When 400 miles from the ship the strongert man of the party gave out, and as the dogs were *lan hM*Amlnar t\f littlo hm U' other person were compelled to harness themselves to ths sledges. After traveling 80 miles In this manner. Dr. Hayes, with only a single companion, and four days rations, pushed on, leaving the disabled man in charge of an attendant Sixty miles from the invalid and hU companion, and with but a single day's ration, Dr. Hayes and hla comrade turned tack upon their homeward journey; but their ctoga had become so exhausted that they were compelled to walk the entire distance. By this trip the most northern land on the globe ever discovered was found and explored, together with TOO miles of xhore line, over which the Stars and Stripes then for the first time waved The point thus attained was 63 deg and 40 mln. north latitude, the highest ever before attained being that of Dr. Kane, 78 deg. and 37 mln north latitude. Following back upon their old route, the party finally reacned their vessel with but seven do^s left, of a pack of fourteen, and having trav eiea, in sixty aays, over i,?w miles Two weeks were (pent at Port Hope making observations and collecting apecimens; and after vainlv striving to pass Cape Isabella on another tour of exploration, the season having become advanced the expedition turned their faces homeward On their route back thev surveyed Jones'Sound and the north shoreline of Baffin's Bay for a distance of 1,300 miles. In Baffin'** Bay they fell in w th a sail, but could get no news whatever from America; and at the station In Greenland the only reply thev got to their eager Inquiries wan, "The South States go away from the North Statin, and plenty of fight." Tne papers there brought news of the Inauguration of President Lincoln, but nothing of war. Hastening on their homeward route, in the midst of a severe gale they descried a vessel, but after running across her bows It was found that they A (ia? t?.?Wa V.abmI M-.Ul vvutu uw> liisav iucmo?>f n u??iu.

One of the parties (both of whom are very respectably connected) to the robbery-, William Hcndlcy, began to reflect upon what he had done, and went to his brother and revealed the whole thing, and told where to recover the goods The re?ult was that patrolmen Donn and Handley, of the Fourth Ward police, arrested Edward Magee and carried him before Justlcc D"nn, by whom he was committed to jail. The goods were recovered, a portion from the residence of Magee, and a part In an old stage coach at the corner of Eighth and H streets.

About SI,000 worth was piled up In the floor, when they were frightened by some noise, and went away with the goods which have since been recovered.
