Eclipse of the Sun in December, 870.
Astronomers in all parts of the world
are now busy in making their prePara
tions fur observing the eclipse o the
sun in December 21-22, 1870., A tho'
it will not be visible in the U. States,
it has been suggested that scimo of . the
American observers of the last eclipse
be sent abroad for the purpose of taking
part in the observations of the one in
question, and Congress has already ap
propriated $29,000 to the Coast' Survey
for that purpose. Great praise• was
awarded by foreign physicists t 1 the
American astronomers for the excel
knee of their work, and especially for
the remarkable photographic Ipictures
that were taken, and at so many points.
And It is urged that these same gentle
men, or a selection from them., would
be admirably fitted for a renewed in
vestigation of the kind, since theiri ex
perience of the first phenomenon wo'ld
enlble them to utilize their nine to bet
ter advantage during the second. !Ac
cording to a recent writer, this eclipse
will begin in the North Atlantic'Ocean;
the line of central 'and, total eclipse,
moving in a southeasterly direction,
crosses Portugal a little to the south of
Lisbon ; passing over part of Spain and
the Mediterranean Sea, it -enters 'Afri
ca•near Oran, and w3on afterward at
tains its extreme southern limit ; the
shadow of the moon now moving in a
northeasterly direction, leaves Africa,
and, crossing the island of Sicily, the
south of Turkey, the Black Sea and the
Sea of Azof, disappears; the penumbra
of the moon decreasing rapidly, 10,ves
the earth with the setting sun in Ara
bia. The s?rn will be centrally and to
tally eclipsed at noon, kh lat. 36 deg.

under whose supervision the inter
lege' has been much promoted, an.
endeavoring to resuscitate it fr.

denbes of the delegates, about fi 1
we visited, on mese, under the eh
dance of the superintendent of th,
tal farm," the farm set apart for t•
riMents in agriculture. It consists
divided off in small sections, .
marked on plots and chart, and e
treated in tillage end cultivation,
planted with different seeds. T

we' fin Ino opportunity to,inspect it
A ere shown the many diffe
wheat barley and oats, tied up in
and labelled, in tho mit tlwellin
vey, the superintendent of the
;Coils was still standing; and am' ngst themany
ditferent sections, as to, kind. a.d cultivation,
nene.presented a very marked app aranee of su
periority. Passing, on our return to the college
building, through 'the grounds Hotted to the'
cultivation of potatoes, it appear.d to me, and
_I could not help remarking to the delegates with
no, that it seemed they were maki gexperinients
especially with the view to demon•trate that po
tatoes will grow, ey,en when surro nded and en—
tirely overtopped by rank grass an. weeds, which
lied to be mowed with the scythe dere digging ;•
but from the results, apparent by ,he little heaps
Of small potatoes, just dug, I onld conclude
that the managers will probably i future pursue
the good old way, and keep theta lean of weeds.
The reason given for the apparent want of prop
er enittvation Of potatoes, and, in a little less de
gree, of corn, was Inc wane at a num, ft, t „,,, t„..
to do the work. According to the regultitions of
the College, each student is rcqUircd to perform
two hours of manual labor per day on the'fartn,
under the insyuctionaind superintendence of the
'President, and the number of students was very
limited during the suMmer months. (They com
menced the fall terni.with 40.)
Ac we are approaching, on our return, the col
lege building, I may as well give you a short de
scription of it. The college stands on ebeatiti
ful rising ground, tend has a very imposing ap•
pearance. It is orie l of the largest. buildings in
the State, built of limestone; %Ail is very abun
dant in Center county, is five FlOriCS high; with
projection of wings a 1 center, and has in'.front
ovet 150 large windo vs,' which II give some
idea of its great size,jl the absent of a correct
description of its dim esions, about which I neg
lected to inquire. The center of the building is
crowned with a dome, from which we enjoyed the
most magnificent view of the surrounding coun
try: Nittaney valley toward the east ;.and south
east, the beautiful and rich Pennsylvania valley
was stretched before_ms, with its rich farms, and
the villages of Iloalsbuig and Pinegrove nestled
in its bosom.
After-feasting our eyes with the beauty of na
ture, snrronnding us on all sides, the ringing 'of
the large bell in thO dome celled us bit'dinner, and
vie reluctantly descended to the ground* floor,
throughtnork and gloomy stairways, which re
minded me of ti passage through a tunnel. Even
the halls leading through the whole length of the
buildings are'poorly lighted, which great defects
elieited a general conclempatien of the architect
who designed the building. After landing safely
at the ball, after our passage through this dark
labyrinth, we were ushered into the largo dining
ball, whore a sumptu'eus dinner was prepared for
the officers, tru,tees and delegates, which was
well relished, and effaced from our memory the
bail itnpreision made by our wanderino in the
dark. After dinner, the election of Trustees took
place, in,,the lecture room of the college, F. Jor
dan, Secretary of the Commonwealth, presiding,
and tho three Trusts whose term bad expired
During the session of the convention, ;gleaned
froM the speeches and_ explanations made in the
same; the following facts, which may prove in
teresting, as relating to the past, present and fu
ture of the college. The institution was organ
ized about the year 1355, and an appropriation
of $50,000 made by the Legislature, for the erec
tion of the building, 200 nerd of land havirig
been dontted by Gen. Irvin Or a' farin of the'
college. In the erection of thp college, calcula.
lions were made for 400 students, which may
properly be called Error No. 1. Thd Trustees
afterward added by purchase 200 acres more,
which it now termed lf,rror No. 2. And after the
full completion of the_ buildings and the expen
diture of the $50,000 appropriated by the State,
the institution was SSO,OOO in debt; which debt,
by, act of Assembly; was fonded'in bonds bear
ing 7 per cent, interest. Tile numbek of students
never came uti to one-half of the Capacity of the
college, and the faculty prevailed ripn the man-,
aging Trustees to commit Error No.' , to increase
said faculty to 27, professors ,nncl t.achers, and
to change the farm school into a firs class lite
rary and scientifie'university.iinder he mistaken
expectatiorethat by this change th number of
students would he very much increa ed, and the
financial interest of the college pron oted. These
