In a Eilitz and excitations ivc of no inst hourly occurrence hut it is Only becomes Vicount and hid Oiler. Unusually Brilliant that they tire and noted. The record of. Destructive Earlh tikes occurs frequently on the pages of the world s written history and us that violent were numerous in the Ages sonic Iines pro historic through their Hist i y is As with a of Iron and Graven in the Rock for Ever. But no inc Coss ii a tempt has been ii inc till very recently to Trace out the. Caus of these wonderful Phenomena. It is the proud achievements of our Ovnik generation o unveil the grand causation. Of these and other disturb Jailes Iii id show he secret of their hidden working s. Modern science teaches us that the Earth is n Globe of a Lilloo. Less eight thousand Miles in Dian Clur whose weight is about Iive and a half limes that of an equal bulk of fresh water. The Saline flu which forms the Ocean is hut a Small fraction heavier than water. And the s Reat bulk of the rocks i and carl.ii.1 u Hii h lie near the snarl acc will not Tii Erager More than two and a half limes the weight of an equal bulk of water. Pic Iirth must. Not Only be a solid body but the matter of which it to c Oln posed Viust be Mure douse near the Centre than that at the surface. This result is due to the pressure of the muss and probably in some degree also to the Cucui pair ii Ive Oliu int nor from it process Lii Lilal de by the Siresi pfc of Ivan a which on account of its. Less specific Gravity May be presumed to by absent from the More cuu Lral portions of Ilic muss. Thoro is also Strong Kirool that the Earth s Interior is very hot. The almost numberless brings which have been made show a nearly Imi Furni increase of temperature As the depth from a econies greater in increase which has been estimated at about fifty seven degrees per mile. Ayo kown of no reason Why the heat should not continue to greater geology Points Back to a time when the whole Earth was one glowing mass and philosophers have computed the rate at which lie surface must have cooled through n Long course of centuries Ere it became fit for tie abode of animals. If then we could carry a thermometer deep into the bowels of the Earth we should probably find at a depth of less Ihan three Miles the Mercury would stand it the boiling Point of water fat twice hint. Depth we should Fin Many of Hie More i Tisbie in oils Ai the melting Point Aid Long Lii fora a in nah Purl of the distance towards the Cecii til re was reached. should encounter a c of heat at even Gold and i to most intractable. Rocks would melt and resolve themselves into u molten sea. Viewing the Earth we inhabit from this stand Point we see a Central mass of More than seven thousand Miles. In diameter composed of relatively heavy. In of fusion. Surrounding this like the Rind of ail Orange is a Rock Shell the outer portion of which has been ground up and to iterated by the action of the air and writer Nortin and to f pm tie of the later geologic eras and furnish a soil for the sustenance of vegetable life. These. Acid other causes to be presently mentioned have hindi the surface uneven and in lilo timer cavities or basins larger masses of water surge continually Iii obedience to the lunar attraction while along the More eleven to it if i rays run the fallen rain and the melted Snow Down to the Ocean and from All parts of the watery system the solar1 rays keep up a continuous the Cloud material. Which again descends in drops or flakes to the Earth tuid.Soa-. Around and above Alj is an ethereal envelope tie atmosphere itself the scene of ceaseless put the Waters into lesser wares of motion and both Nir and water keep up a cont Iii airplay upon the Laud breaking it up into and transporting them hither nud thither. Besides this mechanical work Erich of those restless agents is working chemical changes giving up oxygen to the metals under the influence of heat or carrying ,.6 of metallic atoms involution to Deposit them n other places where the. Eternal play Rii Mical affinities them bodies evolving jollies. Fornis possess. Phases of Quality in their aet Iii on surround Iii Ter. The j chemical Traus Nprma tons this Eli cited Are More vividly apparent in connection with the study of vegetable Ned Iii inn existences Brit the merely mechanical Are perhaps the Lii Ost readily traced. The most massive rocks Are distil Legrate by frosts Mojid undermined by floods. Every Rill of water lakes up and Carrie Wilh it a portion of the solid Over which it flows the Moti min Side ii s m asked away by the Rushing Cataract he River boars with it to the Ocean continual abstractions from its Banks tend in flood time becomes Muddy from the amount of held in s of Lutious. The Ocean tides Wash away Large quantities of Earth fro i he Shore the process being particularly rapid on n Rock As exemplified on the Eastern coast of engl Ancl where the Chalky Chrls arc so fast that the course of to destroyer can be annually traced. The result of this watery no couple actin g influence s would be to All on the Earth s making of die whole one dead Icycle Over which the Waters would distribute themselves equally by virtue of u. Well known Law turning our now Beautiful Globe into an unbroken so Ilkiw sen Wilh not enough of dry Laud for Noah s Clove to i esl upon these destructive agencies Are however lie operation of forces of an opposite character by the action of the two he equilibrium is preserved and the Earlh continued As a in place of residence for Man and the land animals. The whole Iii Iverse so far As we Are Able to observe is kept in being by two sols of opposite forces its perpetuity poised Between hem like Mahomet s coffin which was kept suspended twixt Earth and Tichvon by two equal but contrary attractions. The planetary bodies run their allotted courses the combined influence of the attraction toward he Sun and he vis Iii i Ifa which lends to move them in Tangent lines away from the focus of the orbit. multitudinous Fornis of ctr Cable and animal existence Are kept within certain limits and the integrity of Luiei Rippes maintained by the court expose of their assimilative and their Mutual class antagonisms and he tendency of matter up Inlo Iho Simu or Eleni culs existence. It is equally Well known that Obeso forces Are continually alter Malingin their relative expressions of Power giving Rise to the phenomenon of a ceaseless swaying Back and Forth Over what May to called tie medial Lino but Hie balance is never lost Over recovered yet apparently never preserved while always equal. The planet docs not revolve in a Circle a Ionno he Sun his distance is continually increasing and decreasing within certain limits and even the shape of the Elliptic orbit is subject to a More lengthened period of vibration about the mean eclipse. So too the different forms of animal life exhibit growth and diminution of numbers certain. Classes of insects occasionally develop in alarming Force ind sweep he Earth As Wilh a pestilence but the next year they arc More scarce than usual so with excesses of even with popular excitements and to through All the Domain of nature so far us our sphere of knowledge cd lands. A i on laut oscillation within certain lilct1 i he vibrations of a delicately abjured balance is the condition and he guarantee of continuance to All create forms an existence which May Best be i lined As a stale of permanent instability. In he Case of the Earth Hie Central Ocean of Nollen Mailer counteracts the destructive Opp rations of the oceans of Wilder and air above. The internal fluid mass bears the solid Earlh crust on its bosom. A continent floats on the igneous sea with no danger of sinking on account of its lesser specific if one Side of the continent to lightened by the attrition of the Waters More Ihan the other that Side will Rise in Sass one Side of a ship will ascend if to vessel be Unold cled unequally. If under those circumstances hits Nihil Crinel of he crust be plastic it will yield gently to the Strain and the change of Elevation will occur imperceptibly but if the material be Rocky throughout Iho depth of the crust the bed of the Ocean will be lifted with it and at last giving Way under the Strain ii us a commotion in the Contra mass by is Sii Dpn sinking Lorii is a position of equilibrium. Tin s commotion will be distributed As Waves form in a Filer from a Solasb and cause trembling in the Earth s crust per bps thousands of Miles Awny the.

There be rapidly converted Inlo steam at such a High temperature that it will become explosive and no Inlo he mass by a series of convulsive shocks or More throbs while if Here be porous places in Hie Earth s crust in the Vicinity of la greatest pressure direct Central fluid will Force itself up. Carrying rocks and Earth with it in the wild ascent and forming what is called it volcanic eruption. Not Billy this but the water will be decomposed and readily Virld up its oxygen to the incandescent a instr establishing to combustion and forming oxides or acids with the fiery elements. But it known that these chemical changes cannot Lake place without Rise to powerful electric excitations will pulsate along the Earth s crust and induce the opposite kind of electric conditions in the . But meteorologists Tell us that his atmospheric Xci taxation is the cause of auroral displays. Here then in this unified i Oping of liquid and Solil ii thy Mailer and air we have a simple explanation of to wonderful Phenomena Inch under so Many , have so often astonished and terrified the world. We Haye also a Beautiful exemplification of the of the great Law of compensation which operates alike on the smallest particle of matter and on flip massive Globe which i alike potent forthe perpetuity of Iho Type or the destruction of the individual whether it atom or u system Inlo ruin la Irley or How a Bubblo burst and Tchira world 1 instances Are not rare where the exit elided ii Heayns above referred to have been and nut Clou ties Al innit v Tiore have passed in heeded.

Horror upon horror the boats were sinking wrapped in flames and All around the. Very Waves were transmitted Ojito a fiery Furnace. Death by drowning is frightened but death fire is More terrible than any in vital agony. There wore two bridal parties upon one of the lost vessels.

The chambermaid says two married couples on Board of the United slates All of whom were drowned except one of the brides. Tie mysterious bed. A Travo or wac wending his Way Irons ii he Eastern portion of the suite of new York stopped Over night it the Village of s Wilh sonic friends who were great wags. In one of he be d rooms of the House there was a Bedstead fastened by pulleys o the ceiling or. Night Lime came the traveler was shown to his room. A girl led the Way Candle in hand and after pointing out the deported with the Light saying thai she needed it for the ther lodgers. The traveler undressed Iii groped his Way to the bed or to the spot where he had seen it was Ima used to find that it had disappeared. Trom Corner to Corner he groped but he search righted red was.

Tie landlord and two or he o e of his guests bearing lights his Emp Sintic e Immons and not As he was about to Tell the Story of the missing bed he and to Here it stood As it was before lie tried to inform the Iii of his inability to find he Bedstead but they Only laughed at inn telling him that he must be crazy. As soon As they had shut the door lie made a dive for the bed and landed on the floor. He then began to Hallow and yell louder than Ever and darted for the door. In attempting. To it Csc id the stairs he fell headlong to hot join making such a terrible noise that All the inmates rushed 10 learn the cause of he disaster. Again he told the Story but it was received with ridicule to satisfy him that he had been mistaken one of the. Guests proposed to enter the room with him and remain a. Confederate prisoner just getting Home during Hood s raid into among the Many captured in front of Nashville was a Soldier belonging originally to Foster s company of tie s twentieth venues tee intent named j.

He received transportation Over the North Ern railroads to Louisville a free trip Over the Louisville amp Nashville Railroad he set out on foot and walked All the Way to Nashville. He proceeded Down Market Street he reached the Gordon House where be was taken in by the proprietor and kindly treated. He had a bundle on Lis a quilt and Coverlet. He told his Story and afterwards provided with lodging for the night ind slept soundly but was too fatigued to eat anything until yesterday when his manner at the table showed that he appreciated the Good things set before him. His Home is about live Miles from Luvergne where he has a wife and to or three children. After appeasing his appetite he Fortuna Elv met Wilh an old Comrade in arms who took him in charge and out Eyck him by last evening s Linia to his Home. His mind is some that impaired and when telling his Story he would frequently wander away from his subject.
