    WE have given from time to time, in the Astronomical Column, particulars of the approaching total eclipse, pointing out that it is visible at a point on the Nile, in lat. 26° 32′ N. We are glad to be able to state, that an expedition left this country yesterday with the view of obtaining photographic and spectroscopic observations. The expedition has been organised by the Science and Art Department and the Royal Society combined, on the recommendation of the Solar Physics Committee.
