The following were nominated as a local Committee to cany out the necessaiy preliminary arrangements:?Major James Delafield, Professor J. Henwick, Professor Cvrus Mason, lion. James Tallmndge^ Hon.

Nathan Appleton. intimating his in tention, should the Society publish another volume of their transactions, to subscribe fifty dollars to wards that object. The President, agreeable with a resolution pass ed, nominated Professor Silliman, Professor Rogers and Dr. A. Binnev as a Committee to consider cer tain proposed umendmenta of the Constitution, and supervise the fiscal concerns of the Society. Profeiior Roorm moved that Dr. Wyman be requeated to continue hi? researchoa on fossil bones, and report thereon at the next session. Carried. Also, that Pro feiior Olmsted be requested to report to the Society at it? next ic??:on on the Aurora Borealii. Carried. Also, that Professor Herrick be appointed to investigate the phenomena of (hooting itan, and Profeiior Shephard thoie of meteoric iron and (tone* of the United State*, and report to the society. Adopted. Dr Jackson moved that Mr. Hayei, Dr. Herrick, Dr. Harris, and Spencer P. Baird, of Pennsylvania, be ap pointed to investigate the habit* of bird* in relation to the nature and value of tho food they coniume. Adopted. The name* of Dr. Jackson and Mr. Have* were added to tho committee already appointod, to examine and re port on trap dyke*. Profc**or Silliman announced that Mr*. Whitney would be happy to *eo the association at her reiidence this evening. Adopted with acclamation. Professor 8HcrAKn rose to *ay a few word* farther on the (ubject of Dr. Jackion't communication of last evening, relative to the geology of Lake Superior. He (Profesaor S.j had opportunity only to *ay, that he could not coincide (with the viow brought forward by that ?gentleman, in respect to the peculiarity of the copper ode* or deporite* of Lake Superior, and especially as to hi* inference of the poiiible depth of *uch lode*, and their diroct origin from the primary rock* below. It appeared to him, that we limpfy have in the Lake Supe rior a repetition, on a large *cale indeed, of the new red ? anditone formation with it* contents, like that in the val ley of the Connecticut. For instance, the sandstone con tain* at numerous place* on t* western border, from Ham den to GreenGeld, Ma**., the *anie copper ore* that are found just across the line in the coutiguou* primary; and the*e |are laid down around the dtbrit of the very tame rock*, which are (till aeen to inclose the copper in the primary. Thi( copper ore must, therefore, have been brought by the aame cauie*, (and these doubtles* were torrent* of freih water letting from the higher formation region down the dope* of tho primitive into the thon Great Lake of the Connecticut valley) and laid down lometime* in bedded maite* over wide creas in the *and*tone ; at other* it dropped into east and west crack* along with barytes. Tne subse quent eruption of the trap dyke* among these (trata. an evont which doubtlen led to the drainage of the lake,and and the preient order of the surface, altered many of these deposits of copper,where the dykes passed near or aero** them, partly reducing in the latter ca*e the oxide and lulphuret* to uative copper, bringing portion* of the ore to the surface, on the aidea and back* of the dyke*. So alio with regard to the new red sandstone region of Lake Superior, whose itrata were formed at the *ame period and under limilar circumitance*, from the icgra gation of the lurrounding primitive by the waters which ruihed aero** them in the *ynctinal depreaiion of the lake ; the lubsequent eruption of trap dykea produced ?imilar reiults with the copper atrata and veins which tt^ey contained. The iliding upward* of a trap dyke from the inclined atrata of landitone, would give upon tho upper lurface of the trap, in coune* immediately *ul> jacent to the vein or bed, a superficial coating of amy galoid, rich in native copper. The lubiequent (inking of the trap near auch point* would allow of the coating of point* with thin portion* of native copper,a* deicribea by Dr. J. The preience of lilver with native copper did not appear to Professor S. as any ground for attributing a remote erigin to fthe deposits, since it i* well known that the great new red aanditone of Western Germany, in which alio is copper, produce* qnite as much silver in proportion to the copper, as i* found by Dr. J. at Keweena. The mine*,for eqample, there, give commonly about ten thouiand pound* of silver to two thousan'd ton* of copper. Profeiior S. had no doubt, from the account* given by Dr. J., that the depoiit* he had des cribed were exceedingly rich, and would prove profit able to those engaged in their exploration; but he did not see any ground* for supposing that any new geologi cal features were involved in them, and especially dis sented from the suppo*ition that the copper lode* in con nection with the trap, would descend to great depth*, and leait of all, that they originated directly from the older nyrogenou* rock*. Dr. Jackson explained?He went to Lake Superior im Sresied that the copper ore wa* produced from rock* epositod previous to the landitone. He did not think ao now. The copper mutt have had an igneoua origin, and wa* part of the primary copper of the globe, brought up in the trap rock* from the interior of the earth. The view* of Profeaaor S. were valuable, and would explain the origin of copper in some localities, but not when found in large mane*. Profeiior SiierAao did not attach much consequence to the fact of copper not being found at the junction of the primary and lecondary itrata of aanditone. Aa to the black oxide of copper spoken of. enough carbon was found in red (anditone to account for it He had great respect for Dr. J'i view( on the didrict which he had viaited, but he could not entirely agree with him aa to tie f robabilityof finding the copper far below the aurface. On motion of Mr. Rr.nriELo, Dr. Reed waa appointed to report on the quartz vein( of Berkshire county, Mass. Sir. WHrLm.T addressed the Society on the trap rocks of the Connecticut Valley. His arguments were direct ed to prove that at one period the sandstone of the Con necticut Valley had an elevation to cover entirely those elevationa of the primary rock*, known as trap dykes. Profeior Rogkks followed, making some strictures on the viewi entertained in the lait paper. It waa well known to naturaiista that two great masse* of red aand ?tone occurred in thi* country?one occupied tho valley of the Connecticut; another that long track extending from its northern end at the palliaadea N. J. aa far as Carolina on the South. On the geological survey of New Jeraey he found that ponion of thia great estuary, the horn* of the crescent shaped trap dyes are towards the N. W., while in Connecticut it i* to wards the East, both corresponding with the direction of the sandstone stra tum, and in no way conformed with that of the old sub jacent rock*. Here followed a brief diacnuion between Profe* ?or* Roger*, Itedfield, and othora. The former con tended that there wa* no evidence of a departure from the horizontal in the aanditone bed*, at a period subse quent to their formation. Profesior R. contending that the difference in their horizontal direction waa caused by an upheaving force. B. Silliman, Jr., wa* convinced from every indication, that the direction wa* given to the aanditone* before the intnuion of the trap rocki. Prof. Ri oro ld wiihed to ohiorve, in juiticc to Dr. Percival, that he wa* the first to take up the subject. B. Silliman, Jr., observod that the -With volume of the American Journal of Science, published 1944, gives full credit to Dr. P. as the original ohsnrvor of thn cres ent formed dyke* of trap In the new red mndstono of Connecticut. Dr. Jacbson gnvo aome interesting details of the^ip prrranco and position of tho tmp and sandstone of Neva Scotia, where cvidnnces of an upheaving wa* presented by th? position of masse* of trap protruding between other* of micheloid and sandstone in the linn of least re sistance. Ho considered It was of igneous origin, and causcdby the fusion of iron, snlphur, end homblnnd, and that tho micheloid was a compound of trap and sand stone. Prof. Bam r.r read a paper on a new locality of fos?|l in fusoria, in Oregon, fie said, that understanding that ("apt. Fremont was about departing to pursue some scien tific researches on the Pacific coast, he arqiiested him to collect some specimens of infusoria ; this he did, and those sent were from the remote country, and the extraordinary circuinstanccs in which they were found, were of pecu liar intereit. They were not marine, but all fresh water infuioria, found in a river on the eastern flank of tho fas cade Mountain*, which rise to the height of IA.000 feet. The specimens sent were found imbeded in itrata 700 feet in elevation, beneath a stratum of lav* ; 10 that these most minute of creation's works were hermetically scal ed up in a mass of volcanic matter 100 feet thick. Trof. Ronr.as regarded this (ubject as of exceeding in ??rest; it wk( at last discovered that there were indispu table proofs of an original fresh water formation, and the geological knowlodge of that vast territory would be much advanced by this discovery. He had a lew remarks !? "!!? J , evening on the fresh water formation of the Missouri: in the meantlme.lie would conclude by ask ing I rof. Bailey to stste hi* view* of the probable uge of these infuioria. r ? I rof. Baii.ev said there were a few fact* he could itate on that .ubject; the principal one wai the limilitude ex liting between the.e fossils and exi.ting species of the present day; aome of which were found all over the couutry, other* belonging to Mexico, and other* to va rious section* of the United State*.

The Paris (Missouri) Mercury of the 19th ult. nays Never have we seen here so gloomy a prospect for an abundant crop. There has not been rain enough to lay the dust for month*. Seed which has been put in the ground cannot vegetate, unless it should rain; wheat is dry to its roots. We hear complaints relative to to bacco plants to pitch a crop, and fears are entertained on this subject We would advise farmers to sow tobacco seed again, although late in the season. If tobacco seed he soaked in new milk for a few days, and thon sown, they will come up in a short time anil grow with aston ishing rapidity. The weather, for a few days past, has been much milder than the first three weeks of this month, vegeta tion putting forth rapidly, and the prospect of a large crop of fruit is very promising.?

Mountaineer, of the 25th inst., says Another week has passed without sufficient rain to lay the dust The wheat and oat crops are very much injured, and in some fields entirely cut off; the corn and cotton seed that has been planted, in many places, cannot come up. The drought seems to extend through out tho whole United States, with the exception of light and partial showers in some sections.

The pros pect could not be more favorable. The Michigan Farmer says the wheat crop has not been injured by the exposure to frost the past win ter. It anticipates a good crop. We have been informed, sayi the Edgefield Ad rcrfittr, of Wednesday last, that copious shower* hare recently fallen in some sections of tho District, but in this neighborhood, and throughout the country generally, the drought has continued, and the temperature has been that of summer heat Tho crops in the fields and gar dens have suffered considerably.

How they are all to be provided for is difficult to tell, notwithstanding the great amount of accommodation in Old Gotham.? The different horses continue to improve by train ing and attention. The southern stable continues in active training at J. L. Stevens', near Jamaica.? They take an early gallop about seven o'clock in the morning, after which they are well rubbed down and fed; after they feed they are allowed soma little rest, and again taken out for exercise, but of a more gentle nature. About three o'clock in th? afternoon they have another gallop, after which they are well rubbed down, and a sufficient number ot cloths, icc., thrown over them, to protect from any change of weather. After a gentle walk they are ugain well rubbed and stabled for the night. In each of their stalls sleeps one or two of their attend ants during the night. The whole of the matter ia attended to personally by Mr. Van Leer, and nothing is done without his airection,.and inspection; such is hia vigilance that he does, not leave them for a single moment.
