Sheep huddle together at the approach of bad weather,

SUN SPOTS.-Prof. Loomis, after careful examination, concludes that the black spot on the sun is the result of the disturbance of the sun's surface, which is accompanied by an emanation of some influence from the sun, which is almost instantly felt upon the earth in an unusual disturbance of the earth's magnetism and a flow of electricity, developing the auroral light in the upper region of the carth's atmosphere.

favor the idea that this emanation consists SUN SPOT AS SEEN IY 1870. of a direct flow of electricity from the sun.

Halos, cornæ, etc., presage approaching rain or snow. 7 Sun 13th Sunday after Trinity. 8 MON A considerable and rapid depression of the barometer9 Tues for instance, a fall of three-fourths of an inch in twenty-four 10 Wed hours-indicates an approaching storm, with snow or rain. II|THU The wind will be from the northward if the thermometer is 12 FRI low for the season ; from the southward if the thermometer

is high. If the barometer falls with a rising thermometer 14 Sun 14th Sunday after Trinity. 15 Mon and increased dampness, wind and rain may be expected from 16 Tues the southward. 17 WED A rapid rise of the barometer indicates unsettled weather ; 18|THU

a slow rise indicates fai: weather. The result of all rapid 19/FRI

changes in the weather, or in any of the instrumental indica20 SAT tors, is brief in duration, while that of a gradual change is 21 Sun 15th Sunday after Trinity. 22 MON more durable. 23 Tues

It is generally believed that the storm derives its advanc24 WED ing force from the wind, but this is not so ; the direction of 25/THU

the wind at any place being entirely distinct from that of the 26 FRI

storm's progress over the earth's surface. For instance, while 27 SAT

the storm advances slowly eastward, the wind has every pos28 Sun 16th Sunday after Trinity. 29 Mox sible direction at different places within the limits of the 30 Tues storm.Loomis.

AURORAS.-Prof. Loomis says that “appearances form the idea that the emanation from the sun at the period of sun spots consists of a direct flow of electricity. If we maintain that light and heat are the result of vibrations of rare ether which fills all space, the analogy between these agencies and electri

city would lead us to conclude that this agent also is the result in the vibrations of the same medium, or at least that it is a force capable of being propagated through the ether with

AURORAL ARCH.
