C., where he remained until 1880, meanwhile serving with the expeditions that were sent to observe the transit of Mercury in May, 1878, and the solar eclipse of July, 1878. During 1880-'3 he was professor of astronomy in the University of Tokio, Japan, after which he returned to his post in Washington.
