THE GROGRAPHY of THE MOON.-We find t at the moon 18 a planet accompanying our larger planet, the earth, on its journey wund the sun. Her 2 MtbiThJU r&?0Ut °°e-1uarfcer> her surface about 2 lOTrf. <5^ 2-"th8' hep aa88 about 2-163rda of the earth s. She completes a journey round the earth regarded as at rest in about 271 davs travelling at a mean distance of 233,820 milfs but the lunar moHth, or the period between successive con- junctions ot the sun and moon, has an average length of about 29^ days. The moon's surface may be divided roughly into raised p,,rts wbich are usually bright, and great plamsfnot sinooth) which are darker, and in some cases very dark. Over all the raised parts the signs of rormer volcanic activity are very marked, craters and ring-mountains, much larger than any existing on the te-rth, being found in great numbers on the moon's surface. Smaller craters a.re numerous, not only in the raised parts, but over the grey plains. Many cracks and faults, valleys, ravines, and gorges, are also numerous on the rugged surface of our satellite. No water and very little air seem present on the moon though there are signs that seas formerly existed there, and there is reabon to believe that the'lunar air was once not very rare. Although all is not at rest in the moon, and certain portions of her surface seem to have undergone remarkable changes, even in recent times, there is nothin^ to suggest that our satellite is at preasst the abeda cf lifs.—Soignee fæ All.
