THE following telegram has been received from the English Government Eclipse Expedition:—“On board the Mirzapore, Malta, Saturday, November 4. We have arrived here in safety. All the members of the Eclipse. Expedition are quite well, no thanks, however, to the weather, which during the voyage has been very bad. It was so bad that there was no possibility of practising with the instruments. Last night Mr. Lockyer, at the request of all on board the Mirzapore, gave a scientific lecture with experiments. You may form some idea of the novel cha racter with which the lecture was invested when I state that it was blowing half a gale at the time.”
