duty bound, I felt called 011 to attend,
and shall in this pJnse attempt a short
synopsis of Die proceed inps.
Professor Palmier! of Naples pre
sided, and Dr. Kirclioff officiated as
Oassiot of Purl was the first speak
er, and contended that the theory of
nvdm'K fri.-Um, now being fully estate
lished.it only remained to prescribe the
laws governing its superficial action.
" There is hut one law applicable that
I am aware of." said he, "and that
is the law which drives from the center
of a revolving body all fluid matter
toward the circumference, and forcibly
ejects it into space, if possible; in the
same manner that a common grind
stone in rapid motion will drive off
from its rim drops of water or other
foreign unattached matter. Thus,
whenever we find a vent or open ori
fice, as in the crators of active volcan
oes the Incandescent lava toils up and
frequently overflows the top of the
highest peaks of the Andes."
Palmleri then asked the speaker " If
he wished to he understood as express
ing; the unqualified opinion that an
orifice once being opened would con
tinue to flow forever, and that there
was no law governing the quantity or
regulating the level to which it could
Gassiot replied in the affirmative.
The Neapolitan philosopher then
added : " I dissent in toto from the
opinion of M. Gassiot. For more than
a quarter of a century I have studied
THE LAY A FLOWS OF VESUVIUS,
..Etna and Stromboli, and I can assure1
the Congress that the Creator has left
no such flaw in His mechanism of the
globe. The truth is. that molten lava
can only rise about 21,000 feet above
the level of the sea, owing to the bal
ance wheel of terrestrial gravitation,
which counteracts at that hight ail
centrifugal energy. Were this not so
the entire contents of the globe would
gush from the Incandescent center and
fly off into surrounding space."
M. Gassiot replied, "that true vol
canoes were provided by nature with
cw'iimrnhvlar lips, and hence after
filling their craters they ceased to flow.
But in the instance before us no such
provisions existed, and the only pro
tection which he could conceive of
consisted in thesmallness of the orifice;
and he would therefore recommend
His Majesty King Leopold to direct
all his efforts to confine the aperture
to lt present sise."
Palmier! again responded, "that he
had no doubt but that the crater at
Dudzeele would continue to flow until
it bad built up around Itself basaltic
walls to the hight of many hundred,
perliaps thousands of feet and that
the idea of setting bounds to the size
of the month ot the excavation was
Gassiot interrupted, and was about
to answer in a very excited tone, when
Professor Palmieri "disclaimed any
Intention of personal Insult, but spoke
from a scientific standpoint." He
then proceeded. "The lava bed of
Mount .Etna maintains a normal level
of 7.000 feet, whilst Vesuvius calmly
reposes at a little more than one-half
that altitude. On the other hand, ac
cording fo Professor Whitney, of
THE PACIFIC SURVEY, .
Mount Kilanea, in the Sandwich
Islands, bubbles up to the enormous
hight of 17,000 feet. It cannot be con
tended that the crater of Vesuvius is
not a true nucleatic orifice, because I
Iwve demonstrated that the molten bed
regularly ries and falls like the tides
of the ocean when controlled by the
moon." It was seen at once that the
scientists present were totally unpre
pared to discuss the question in its
novel and most important aspects and
on taking a vote at the dole of the
session, the members were equally di
vided between the opinions of Gassiot
and Palmieri. A further session will
take place on the arrival ot Professor
Tyndall, who lias been telegraphed for
from New York, and ot the great Rus
sian geologist and astronomer, Tuge
nieff. In conclusion, the damage already
done may be summed up as follows :
The destruction of the Bruges and
Hond canal, by the formation of a
basaltic dike across it more than two
hundred feet wide; the burning of
Dudzeele, and the devastation of about
thirty thousand acres of valuable land.
At the same time it is utterly impossi
ble to predict where the damage may
stop, inasmuch as early this morning
the mouth of the crater had fallen in
and the flowing stream had more than
doubled in size.
In consideration of the part hitherto
taken by the Government of the United
States in originating the work that led
to the catastrophe, and by request of
M. Musenheim. the Belgian Foreign
Secretary, I have token the liberty of
drawing upon the State Department
' EKIlfTY-SKVKN THOUSAND DOLLARS,
Being the snm agreed to be paid for
the est of emigration to the United
States of two hundred families (our

conflagration of Dudzeele.
I am this moment in receipt of your
telegram dated yesterday, and rejoice
to learn that Professor Agasslz has re
turned from the Soutlr Seas and Will
be sent forward without delay.
With great respect, I have tne honor
to be your most obedient servent,
U. S. Consul at Bruges.
P. S. Since concluding the above
dispatch. Professor Pa!niieri did me
the honor of a special cull, and, after
some desultory conversation, approach
ed the all-absorhing topic of t tie day.
and cautiously expressed his opinion,
as follows: Explaining his theory,
as announced at the Congress, he said
that " Holland, Belgium and Denmark
being all low countries, some portions
of each lying below the sea level, he
would not be surprised if the present
out-flow of lava devastated them all,
and covered the bottom of the North
Sea tor many square leagues with a
bed of basalt." The reason given was
this: "That lava must continue to
flow until, by its own action, it builds
up around the volcanic crater a rim or
cone high enough to afford a counter
THE CENTRIFUGAL TENDENCY OF AXIAL
And that, as the earth's crust was
demonstrated to lie exceptionally thin
in the north of Europe, the hight re
quired in this instance, would be so
great (hat an enormous lapse ot time
must ensue before the self-created cone
could obtain the necessary altitude.
Before ..-Etna attained its present se
cure hight it devastated an area as
large as P'rance ; and Proiessor Whit
ney has demonstrated that some center
of volcanic action, now extinct, in the
State ot California, threw out a stream
that covered a much greater surface,
as the basaltic table mountains vul
garly so called extend north and
south for a distance as great as from
Moscow to Rome." In concluding his
remarks he ventured the prediction
that " the North Sea would be com
pletely filled up and tlie British Islands
again connected with the Continent."
