Ottawa, Mnrch 12.- The following in
Wj'Kg'n' theory promised after the
norm: jnid titorin has satiitled me
that the theory of the opjtosite tide.which
I bdvauctd in 1804, in cbrrect, namely:
That it is caused by the vibratory motion
of the ocean from east to west. I know
to an absolute fact that the hour at which
local storms will arise at different points
on the earth's surface; also when a cold
period like that of January junt passed
is to occur; when remarkable floods will
will take place and when winters will be
distinguished for grat quantities of
snow can be predicted for anv length of
time in advance. Ho then gives u loa
confabulation on planetary conjunctions
and moon's phases, aud Huys the time
will come within a thousand year when
the whale American coast will be put
under water by a tidal wave, and should
Venus and Mercury at that momcut be
at interior conjuctions and Jupiter, Mars
and Saturn at wuprrior conductions,
breakers will roar in the streets of New
York, and Florida will be no more.
