Speculations about the weather are not wholly useless if we are to accept the testimony of Pro fessor .1. Hyatt, who has been en gaged for a long time in studying the relations between the phrases of the moon and the rainfall at certain stations. It has long been known that when the moon is full the sky is most likely to be clear this is not only the testimony of sailors and farmers, but also of eminent astronomers and scientific men. Tt appears that the rays of the full moon have the power to dispel clouds, and it therefore seems not unreasonable to suppose that the moon exerts an appreci able influence upon the weather. Professor Jlyatts observations have led him to divide the lunar month, ' of about twent' and a half days, into eight periods, or octants, of three and two-thirds days each, and he has found that even' lun ation is apt to acq...

The advertisement for proposals to liht the btreets of New York has brought gas and electricity into competition; and the bids fur nished indicate that the latter is the cheaper light of the two. The bids for lighting with gas ran from 18 per lamp, per year, in the down-town wards,, to &:S per lamp in the Twentv-fouith ward.

Like the preced ing numbers, this issue is filled with interesting and valuabkriiuit ter to alb who watch the progress of foreigji nations in industry or our own relations therewith. Sec retary Blaine not only partakes of the same interest in our commerce as did Secretary Evarts, but also possesses a zeal that evinces his determination to use the consular corps for the purpose that it was intended, the promotion and protec tion of American commerce. In championing the hoj-export Mr. Blaine is establishing protection for all our exports, as will be seen in the reports published from some six or seven consuls, showing the unjust influences used against American exports in Eu rope.
