MR. HUNTINGTON'S LECTURE.
Mr. Huntington gave a continuation of his lectures with magic lantern views of different place in Europe. His subject was Switzerland. The hall was entirely filled with people who thoroughly enjoyed the lecture. In the course of the lecture, Mr. Huntington described an ascent which he made of Monte Rosa, a mountain nearly as high as Mont Blane. The mountain is a very difficult one to ascend, so difficult that it is impossible to carry a camera along, so that no views of the ascent itself could be given. Views, however, illustrating the various difficulties in the ascent of a snow-covered mountain were given. Mr. Huntington's ascent and descent was made very quickly, so quickly that, when he returned, the people at the hotel from which he started would not believe he had made the ascent. The names of his companions and his own name, however, were left at the summit, so that the ascent would be proved by a party which ascended immediately after him. The rest of the lecture was spent in giving views of a tour on the Italian side of Monte Rosa, through the Alps to Milan, which lies at the foot of the Italian Alps. The only objectionable feature of the lecture was the extreme closeness of the hall.
