Vacant Farms In Vermont.
A rather sad story Is told by Mr.
Valentine, n Vermont official, about
the desertion of that beautiful state
by its former inhabitants. Standing
with other officials on n hill in Ben
nington county, and looking over the
valleyjof the West River, a tributary
of the Connecticut, they counted fif
teen contiguous farms, of perhaps a
hundred acres each, all fenced, and
with dwelling houses and barns in at
least tolerable condition, without
single inhabitant. Beyond, toward
the Connecticut, but hidden by the
maple groves in the valley, were, as
they knew, fifteen more, also deserted
yet all well situated and still showing
signs of their former fertility. Statis
tics show thnt a similar condition
prevails all over the state. It Wind
ham county alone are more than forty
thousand acres of land, once cultivat
ed, but now deserted, and in the
whole state the number of abandoned
barns, and outbuildings, must be
several thousand. Yet Vermont is
one of the pleasantest, healthiest,
most fertile, and most civilized states
in the Union. In its river valleys is
no malaria, while its hills are covered
to the summit with vegetation. The
reckless agriculture which has made
portions of the south nearly barren,
has never been favored in Vermont
where a century or more of stock
farming has rather enriched thun ex
hausted the soil; yet the people who
once found happy homes there have
crowded into the towns, or ha ?c left
the state altogether. In thirty years,
from 1850 to 18S0, the increase of
population in Vermont was five per
cent., while the population of the
whole country more than doubled
and that of the adjoining state of
Massachusetts increased by nearly
eighty per cent. Not pretending to
any ideas on political’economy, we
will not try to account for this strange
condition of things, but it is certainly
curious thnt a region so favored in
climate and position should be retro
grading so rapidly.—American Archi

Departure of (he American Astron
Tho United States war ship Pensa
cola left New York on the 17th of
Oct. for the west coast of Africa, hav
ing on board the members of the sci
entitle corps commissioned to go to
Africa to observe the total eclipse of
the sun, which takes place on the 22d
of December. Many valuable astron
omical instruments have been provi
ded, photographic cameras, etc.; also
others for deep sea investigations,
which Professor Agassiz will conduct.
Professor David P. Todd, of Am
herst College, Massachusetts, is the
chief of the expedition. Although a
young man, he stands high ns an as
tronomer, and is admirably qualified
for the position be lias assumed. He
will have among bis assistants Prof.
H. F. Bigelow, of Racine College, a
well-known mathematician nnd as
tronomer; Prof. E. J. Loomis, of
Harvard, astronomer and naturalist;
Prof. C. Abbe, of the College of New
York ; Prof. L. H. Jacoby, of Colum
bia College; E. B. Preston, of the
Coast Survey; W. H. Brown, of’the
National Museum; Prof. H. S. Davis,
of Princeton University; J. H. Car-
butt, photographer. (Orthochroma-
tic dry plates will be used, aud supe
rior apparatus, by which images of
the sun, four inches in diameter, will
be taken.) E. J. Wright, assistant
photographer; Prof. C. A Orr, of
Clark. University; Prof. G. E. Van
Guysling, and others.
The appointed station is Maxima,
on the Guanzo River.
The total eclipse of the sun will be
visible in a loog, narrow path 5,000
miles long nnd only 100 miles wide,
which extends nearly its entire dis-
tancc ovcr the ocean. It begins in
the Caribbean Sea and skirts tho
northerp* coast of South America,
being visible at only one point there,
French Guiana. It then moves east
ward until it strikes Africa, a few
hundred miles south of the Congo
River. An expedition from the Lick
Observatory, in California, will go to
French Guiana to view the eclipse
