if the mjinformation

if the mjinformation is to be improved in quantity, in frequency of reception, or in quality, whether this last implies a higher class of observations or increased accuracy in transmission, the cost is at once raised, as these conditions imply a more extensive use of the telegraph and longer hours of attendance in the office and at the stationThe Office receives, or would receive, were the Continental British organitelegraphic communications and that with the Shetlands perfect, wtlonreports every morning, andevery afternoon, except on Sunday The observations are taken on Sundays as on other days, but are not received at the Meteorological Office until Monday morning, when the report for Sunday is made out. The stations are situated along the entire coast of the Continent, from Christiansund, in lat., to Corunna, in lat. , with four stations on the coast of the Baltic, and one at Cape Sicie in the MediterraneaThe system is unfortunately most defective along our own Stations on the western coasts, owing to the imperfections of telegraphic com wet coast munication in those thinlypeopled and mountainous district The only stations along the line in question are Valencia, Greencastle on Lough Foyle, Ardrossan, and Stornoway. The Committee are not without hopes that they may be able to carry out the idea, proposed in their last Report, of establishing a Btation at Mullaghmore, a low lying point on the south side of Donegal Bay, not far from Sligo.The possibility of deriving benefit, as regards the probable Reports from weather of these islands, from Tory Burch Shoes constant reports from America has tAtfantic frequently been inserted in the newspapers and in scientific journals, but the experience of the Office, which for four years received daily reports free of charge from Heart's Content by the liberality of the AngloAmerican Telegraph Company, is not favourable to the idea of incurring expense for such a servic Not only was little benefit derived from such isolated and unsupported reports, but the subsequent study of the weather recorded in ship's logs has shown that atmospheric disturbances, though Tory Burch Flats they may cross the Atlantic occasionally from shore to shore, in most instances Tory Burch Outlet undergo such changes in their progress, that the fact of the severity of a storm on the coat of America is no gauge of its probable character when it arrives on our shore.
