[FOR THE COLONIST.]   IT is now generally acknowledged that there   exist certain laws, by which the seasons of the globe are governed ; and it is known that the different zones exercise in that respect a mutual influence upon each other One of the greatest agencies, which influence the annual tempera- ture of the globe, are those vast accumulations of ice, which circumnate and compose the two poles. But as the northern hemisphere con- tains in that quarter a great extent of continents which modify the formation of ice, and influence its action upon the surrounding atmosphere. It is principally the South Pole, where changes and actions upon the terrestrial meteors are derived. This also will be one of the reasons why, in a few years, the eyes of the learned will be eagerly turned upon this land of natural wonders and anomalies...
