A writer in the Lynn transcript gives the following account of the appearance of the famous quot sea Serj ent quot of which he was an a a witness some years later in August. 1819, another notable character made his appearance on our seacoast. He was of another species and of singular form and cleaner habits called a sea Serpent. And As the account of some sort of a sea monster been treated Sportive Lyas a quot fish Story quot and As be Ojile generally Are at a loss to know what to believe i hereby give the test morn of a living witness. I had the pleasure of seeing i Snake ship off Long Beach and quot red Hock. He passed along within Jne Hundred feet from where 1 stood a iving me a yer Good sight of Hin. At to. Be he quot married his head out of water al out to feet and Speed was like that of an Ordick by Ocean Steamer. What i saw of his length was from fifty to sixty feet. It was a try dial cult to count the Bunches or Bony Fui us on his Back by his undulating motion the a did not All a Pear at once. This accounts in i it Art for the varied descriptions Given of Linin by dit ii Reni arties. Ilis a Pear ance at the surface of the water was occasional and but for a Short time. This is the Best description i can give of him from my can Obs i vation am i saw the moister As truly though not Juite so a clearly As i Ever saw anything. This Hiattt r has by some a in to eat i a hoax or a Seaside Phenon itov., to bring Trade Atul profit to the watering place s. All , there is no doubt that set Mie kind of a a to Ange Rover in the form of sex it a a a called an Inhthy saurus Lesio Sandrus or some other strange creature with a Long name has Bei n seen m our own if not in other Waters. A very full count was a riven of him at the time by Jaous Prince of Boston and b. F. Newhall of Sau irus. Or. Prince save that he carried his head out of water about the feet. He counted thirteen Bunches upon his Back and judged him to be from fifty to sixty feet in length. Or. Newhall said that he carried his head about six feet out a f water and a he thought him to be from mighty to okie Hundred feet hug and quot there were Bunches on his Back who h the Sun caused to Glisten like . Quot at this time the re were some two Hundred people on the quot in Hore watching his movements some of whom besides myself May now be living. The next Day preparations were made his Cai Turi. But the to r was capture a one. Golden Opportunity the spider As a balloonist. In speaking of the intelligence displayed by and beast ii Seth Ireen in an interview with a Rochester x. A reporter argued strongly in favor of the reasoning Power of cts especially and related from his own experience the manner in which a spider constructs a balloon. If you Anchor a pole in a lie next body of water leaving the pole above the sur face and put a spider upon it he will exhibit marvellous Intel he ence by his plans to escape. At first he will spin a web several inches Long and hang to one end while he allows the other to float oif in the wind in the Hope that it will strike some object. Of course this plan proves a failure but the spider is not discouraged. He Waits until the wind changes and then sends another Silken Bridge Ilo Atin off in another direction. Another failure is followed by several other similar attempts until aii the Points of the Compass have been tried. But neither the resources nor the reasoning Powers of the spider Are exhausted. He climbs to the top of the pole and energetically goes to work to construct a Silken balloon lie has no hot air with which to inflate it but he has the Power of making it buoyant. When he gets his balloon finished he does not go off upon the Mere supposition that it will carry him As men often do but he fastens to it a Guy rope the other end of which he attaches to the Island pole upon which he is a prisoner. He then gets into his Aerial vehicle whih it is made fast and tests it to see whether dimensions Are a ble of the work of bearing him away. He often finds that he has made it too Small in which Case he hauls it Down takes it apart and constructs it on a larger and better plan. A spider has been to make three different balloons before he became satisfied with his Experiment. Then he in snap the Guy rope and a a to land As erace fury Aid As supremely Independent of his surroundings As could Well be imagined. Or. Green stated that he had repeatedly witnessed such actions by age of the Earth. At the Midland Institute Birmingham the other Day prof. Ayrton delivered a lecture in which he gave some estimates of the Earth s ago. In reply to the question of whether the Earth a existence was to be coisted by thousands or by millions of years he called attention to the Geol Oscai evidence of organic changes on the ears s surface which required not less than a Hundred million years for the Earth Sage. There was however a better method of approximating to the age of the Earth. The changes of temperature belonging to the different seasons were less Percy pit Bly Felt As they penetrated the substance of the Earth until at the depth of about fifty feet the temperature was practically constant. If however they continue to descend an in increase of temperature was experienced at about the rate of one degree per fifty feet of the descent. Supposing tins increase went on at the same rate until the Centre of the Globe was reached the temperature there would be 400,00 de Pees higher than at the surface. The Jowas however no reason to assume that the increase i Fiigon on or that the temperature at the Center was higher than Liat of lie molten Rock 7,000 degrees or at most 10,1 k30 degrees. Assuming this to be the temperature at the Center and knowing by Experiment the conducting Power of Rock in the relation to heat sir William Thompson was Able to calculate the present distribution of temperature throughout the whole Earth not Only the present distribution downward but the distribution at any future and at any past time. Taking the Teri Pesature at 7,000 it degrees Asl yen once been the uniform temperature of the whole body the result of the calculation was that the Earth had been a Hundred million Vears in tool Init.
