The above _general_ enunciations of the barometric and anemonal phænomena of a rotating storm hold good with regard to the _northern_ hemisphere, whatever may be the direction in which the hurricanes advance.
It will be readily seen that the lateral passage of the N.W. and S.E. currents towards the N.E. presents precisely the same barometric and anemonal phænomena as the rotatory storms when moving in the same direction.
 This table is also applicable to the hurricanes in the neighbourhood of Mauritius in the southern hemisphere, where all the phænomena are reversed; the motion of the hurricanes being towards the S.W., and the rotation in the direction of the hands of a watch, the same barometric and anemonal phænomena are experienced as in a hurricane in the northern hemisphere moving towards the N.E.  By the officer of the watch being charged with this duty, and its being executed under his immediate superintendence, it is apprehended that a register may be kept with great regularity.
