I.*CTCitt ?Atthe Smithsonian. last night, Prof Barnard delivered his second lecture on light After briefly alluding to the previous lecture, be took np for hl> subject the polarization of light It vras Impossible to explain wbat polarization was. without first establishing a theory as to the nature of light, and that theory was that light it composed of minute particles of matter thrown out by some unknown agency. It was a well established principle that air was composed of minute particles, which moved freely among each othrr. and that aound was but the undulations of these particles striking against the organism of the ear. He should attempt to show the nimllarity existing to a certain extent between the movements of sound and lloht Th? nf - ? r+ ? ? - - - ~ M ltK ht was greater than any other known substance, and although its power might be varied, its velocity would remain the same. The dim light of Jupiter, end tbe dazzling brightness of the aun, moved with exactly the came velocity, under all circumstances TqIs was Illustrated In the transmission of sound A bell might be (truck softly or with great force, but while the volume of sound vwnuld be lncre<s?d, the velocity of that ound would not be affected in the least Tbe first discoveries towards determining the velocity of light were of very modern date. In 1875 an astronomer of France perceived the irregularities of the eclipse of Jupiter, and about the same time an astronomer of Copenhagen made the time discovery The lecturer here referred to several diagrams, which we are unable to explain to the reader, and illustrated the movements of the satellite* of Jupiter. and how the velocity of light was ascertained It wa' finally proved that light traveled at the rate of 195 M<0 UUU miles per second; and lb & fact was now tstablisbed beyond doubt. An ounce ball discharged from our modern fire arms at any body bad a terrible effct; but a single j;rain moving with tbe velocity of a ray of ll|;bt was more effective than l.UOO.OUO.OUU of ounce hi 1! a I 1*4 ?- 1 ?.....

The impression made upon the eye by a ray of light was caused by the undulations of infinitelyminute particles of light, which were pat in motion by the vibration of some powerful agency or hod?, precisely aa the undulations of air was caused by a bell. As th? undulations of the air extended almost beyond limit, while the bell retained its local position, so the undulations of the particles of which light was composed were limand tbelr agency local. The lecturer illustrated the difference between vibration and undulation by a series of very interesting experiments, and showed the various inodiAr.liniu "? Ik.

Death or a wiil-i.tow.i I*dividbal ?On Wednesday l?*t, Jerry Lowe, a respectable colored man, well-known to many of our citizens. I died at tbe residence of bis d?ntrhtj?r on ranllnl Hill. He had been for many yean employed about the stor>? and offices on Pennsylvania avenue, and had won the estpftn of his employers by h's integrity and industry He had a particular "yenrniug" for Capitol Hill, and maintained a sort of patriarchal rule among the "cullud pus sunk'' la that vicinity. It was a matter of great Importance and self-congratulation to him that no ma trr who was elected Prenider.t, he could not take his seat without first delivering an address in bis dominions A short time since Jerry professed religion, and withdrew from the notion of the public to a great extent. It it averted by many re? pec table citizen* that Jerry bad attained to tbe age of 114 years, and that bis death waa not from any disease, bat that he dle<l simply of old Explosion of a Stkam Boilkk?Serious Accident to an Engineer ?A dreadful accident occurred yesterday morning at tbe Columbian College. by wblcb the engineer, named Buckingham, was badly if not fatally Injured It seems probable that the explosion occurred through some plate in the boiler having a defect Tbe engine building was completely destroyed, and the engineer dreadfully disb^ured. He is fearfully scalded. Lis eye* rendered sightless, perhaps forever, and mm oi Li* legs oroaen, besides other Injuries mpoo his person, which are of so aerlous a character as to render hie recovery extremely doubtful. In consequence of the. accident, the College students Lave been dismissed for a day or two, until temporary arrangement* can be effected for heating the building. The boiler, we believe, wa made outside of this city. Thosk N. V Resolutions?We are glad to record another Instance of a patriotic stand taken amongst the "National Volunteers" against the " 1* W Washington resolutions On the night t h- se resolutions were sprung In the extraordl nary manner described In the Star lately. Mr A. J. Rhey. a clerk In the Sixth Auditor's of&ce, from Pennsylvania, noted the manner in which the committee on resolutions was made up, and the exceeding facility with which the resolutions were drawn up and engroaaed. and listened while they were read He then made an effort to have them tabled, but was unable to obtain bearing, and they '* went through" as before reported. Mr Rhey immediately upon their passage char acterixed the association u an incendiary one, and withdrew his name from the list of members. The Muskets or the Police?This morning two carts, one loaded with boxes of muskets, the other with the necessary ammunition and appurtenances for their use. passed down Louisiana avenue from the City Hall. They excited some curiosity, as might be expected In tb?**e exciting times, but no alarm. They passed along undisturbed by any one, no one deeming it necessary to selxe them in order to protect them for the Government Upon Inquiry we were Informed that they wre the arms furnished the city police for use in rise of necessity, and were being moved from the City Hall, where they were formerly deposited, to the Central Guard house.

" The reaaon," the Court said, "isobvlous.becauae the distribution of the peraonal estate ia governed by the law of the last domicll. it la proper, however, under all the circumstances to allow the parties a reasonable time to ahow by evidence where the dointcll of the deceaaed was, and the cause is accordingly retained for that purpose." With reference to the application for a guardian to be appointed for the children of the aeceaaed, the Court stated that it haa no power to appoint a guardian until thechildrenare brought personally into court. That being done, the Court would decide upon the proper party to have their custody. The children in question are now residing In Parla.
