The f iraous onmnts of this century have
been those of 1H07, 1812. 1335, 1843, 1858
and 1861. Sirae observers think this
comet can be iduntiQ -d with lint of 1807;
ol hers with lb it of 1812, bat the uh.inoes
are that it is a stranger to the astrono
mers. That of 18)5 is kn iwn as IIuIhv's
cnmi-t and his a piriol of sevunty-six
ynrs; that is, it belongs to the solar sys
tem and goes about the nun every seventy
six years. There was quite a bright comet
in 1H71 that is known as C iggii's uoiu.il

The great r met of 1861 was not as sub

object, and in ome respects of more
Interest. It appeared suddenly tne last of
June, 18(51, to northern observers. Its tail
stretched over an aro variously computed
from 106 to 118 degrees or nearly two
thirds of the visible heavons. Besides it
was an ' unknown," a stranger in a
strange land, and did not belong to the
solar svstem at all. It just made a call at

In old times comets were thought to
presage war and other dire disaster, and
even in later jears have alarmed many by
their npproach. It is indeed probable that

om di-p itches h ive been reciived by Prof.
hwilt, of the Warner Observatory at
Uiebesler, N. Y., by which it apiiears
that another great comet has been discov
ered. Prof. Sharpless of Haverford Col
lege, Pennsylvania, states that L. T. Ed
wards saw it wiih the naked eye oo the
morning of June 231, and Mr. Edgar L.
Laikin.of New Windsor, III , also reports
seeing it and that it is vast. It seems prob
able that ihe tail is not less than 15 in
length while the head is as bright as Jupi
ter. The new comet is located in the con
stellation of Auriga about 8" from Capella,
and it is not improbable that it may he the
much I'xpeoled comet of 1812 which should
appear not far from that I icality. As the
two dispatches were received in Rochester
simultaneously, there is some question as
to whether the honor of discjvery, and the
Warner prize of $i00, belong to Mr. Ed
wards or Mr. Larkin.

So prodigious are the numbers emigrat

may be excused for a rhetorical flourish

The want of historical insight which

words of one of the German orators who.
politely bowing to Mr. White, gave it as

Colonel Smart Wortley, curator of the

Reader Lack, clerk to tbe commissioners,

as well as for informing inventors and the

then marine engines and other inventions

locomotive engines, etc., each as lar as
possible collected togelner in appropriate
groups. Here the visitor is brought face
to face with the great achievements of

and it may be that while be accords to the
inventor his full share of admiration, he
may feel some spring touched in ths mys
terious arrangements of his own being.

result, perhaps, of one day adding some
design of his own to this wonderful oollec

practical one, it must not be supposed that

Quite ihe contrary. There are docks there
which bave been proclaiming the flight
of time for more than five hundred years.
Here surely is food for the moralist to
speculate upon! Here, for instance, is the
old clock from Glastenbury Abbey, the
handiwork of one of the monks in tbe 14lh
century. Here, too, is an equally antique
timepiece, taken out of the tower of Ames
bury church. Do the rude forefathers of
the hamlet miss the chimes which for cen
turies p iss in a wave of sound sent floating
ovor their graves the hourly intelligence
that time was lapsing into eternity? An
other interesting relic is the clock which
formerly did service over the gateway of
Dover Castle. Coming down to a later
dale we here find Puffing Billy, the first
steam engine which ever worked upon a
railway. Who is able to estimate the
strength and depth of ihe great current of
improvement which the first revolution o.
his wheels set in motion? Beside him
stands ihe Rocket, the engine which drew

and Manchester line the first homicide,

make another visit to that place and con

It is not ncoessary to read between the
lines to discover that the compliments and
congratulations in ihe British press apro
pos the Derby are not wholly the expres

accompanying the admission of Iroquois'
triumph is barely concealed in the decor
ous terms of congiatulation. Nor is It
omitted in any discussion of the race that
Iroquois is practically an English horse;
and hence the conquest quite natural and
not to be disparaged by the accident of
jockey or lay of the land. The chief point
that troubles the aristocracy is the fear that
our "people in trade'' will insist on push
ing themselves forward for admission to
the Jockey Club an indulgence quite in
compatible with everything the Briton
holds sacred. How could he 1)6 asked to
admit as an equal a man from whom he
might be brought to buy "fine cut," or a
pair of trousers or any other necessity of
life? The aristocrat doesn't object to
meeting the man he buys houses or lands
if his bonds or pills from, but he could
not possibly touch the same social board
with a clothier, a carpet dealer or any
ilher industry, retail or wholesale. All
which goes to show that the ambitious
American who wants to " know " the
Knglish aristocracy "as they are" will have
to give up business, buy a title and live in
idleness or speculation, horse raoing or
gambling. Then all doors will fly open at

Again, at the grave another unseemly
interruption occurred. M. Littre had ex-pies-ly
ordered that no speech should he

the director ot the Revue Positive pushed

crying, " Enough, enough! Respeot the

with M. Wyronboff, and a lively alterca

in spile of the remarks of the relations,

The government life-saving service ap
liears to be suffering from the fact that its
-alaries were fixed in a time of low prices
four and live years ago. In most of the
government departments the rale of com
pensation was raised at the close of ihe
war, and the reductions during tho brief
lieriod of congressional economy failed to
bring salaries down "to the level of the
prices paid by private employers. Now thai
wages are improving, Ihe general average
is rising to the government level; but the
life-saving service was the last reorganized
and the rate of pay fixed when prices were
low and there whs a natural anxiety to ask
of congress as little as possible for a new
set of officers. When the pay of pitrol
men in the service whb placed at $1.33 a
day, the sum was deo dedly above the
average rate for unskilled labor, now it is
as much below it, and the same thing is
true of olher grades of the service. A
number of resignations are re)orted and
the efficiency of the service is likely to be
impaired unless congress revises the pre
sent rate of pay. As a mere matter ol
insurance, the country can afford this
within certain limits The properly saved
by the life saving service in the last year
leporteil, 1880, is placed at $2,619,807, anil
the total cost ol tbe service for the same
year, $455,000, leaves a suggestive mar
gin. Not only does it appear that a large
majority ol tbe republicans of Virginia are
opposed to the nomination of a separate
ticket and in favor of supporting that
headed by Cameron and Iewis, but in our
judgment they are perfectly right in their
position. Ateie fork Tunes.

Vermont Methodist Seminary.
Tbe examinations in this institution took
place Monday and Tuesday, June 20ih and
21st. and passed oft creditably both to
teachers and students.
On Tuesday evening, June 21st, Miss Ab
ba Gould Woolson delivered the annual
address before the Jisthetlo Society, tbe
latter organisation, with the " Band," at
tending in a body. We noticed that the
other two societies, the "Adelphl" and
Ltdies' Literary " (for some reason that
has not as yet been given) did not accept
the invitation extended to them to be pres
ent. Tbe exercises were opened with a
piano solo by Misses Lewis and Wilson.
Prayer was offered by Kev. A. L. Cooper;
and this was followed with a solo by Miss
Ella Dutton, Mr. Hadley presiding at tbe
piano. Tbe speaker was introduced by
Miss Zi.la Stiles. Subjt: "Dr. John
son and bis friends." Miss Woolson first
spoke of Ihe limes in which Dr. Johnson
lived, of tho influences exerted upon the
public mind politically, socially and mor
ally; of the reasons why be might be
justly termed the central figure among the
literary men of his own day. She divided
his history into three distinct periods:
First, his life in Litchfield, his departure
to London and his career in that city, and
the latter years of his life.
She spoke of the many hardships he
endured, his thirst for knowledge, his life
in college, his peculiar traits of cbaraoter,
of the misfortunes which compelled him
to go to lyomlon. bis struggles for success,
of tho many difficulties he encountered,
his disposition to cultivate, as far as pos
sible, the acquaintance of men of letters ;
his gradual rise to popularity, the high
position he at last gained socially, financi
ally and as a man of genius, placing him
at the head of the scholars of his own
The speaker then mentioned some of bis
moro important works and the public favor
which they attracted. It is not, however,
so much on account of the value of his
writings that we should admire him it is
of the man himself, considering as we
must the ago in which he lived, and the
sentimont of the times. The more we be
come acquainted with Johnson's life and
what he accomplished the more we appre
ciate him. We cannot study him ns a
man or the works of which he was the
author, without admiring him.
She SKke of the great influence exerted
by Dr. Johnson upon his many associates,
of Ihe great friendship which ever existed
between James Boswidl (one of his early
acquaintances) and himself, whose princi
pal claim to respect was his "Life of John
son," of the many friendly meetings that
were held by Ihe literary men of his day,
among whom might be mentioned David
Garrick, one of his former pupils. Burke,
Goldsmith and others. At these gather
ings Dr. Johnson was the acknowledged
leader. His powers of conversation were
remarkable, and his many peculiarities
must have lent greal inlereston the various
occasions. His acquaintances were many,
embracing a large circle of men of wealth
and culture. His company was sought for
on every hand, despite the peculiarities of
his character. He was thoroughly a man
of letters, and admitted by all to tbe high
est position in the literary circles of his
The lecture was a most excellent one,
and was highly appreciated.
Wednesday, June 22d, at 10 o'cloek A.
M., occurred the annual meeting of tho
trustees. At 2 o'clock in the afternoon
i be annual meeting of the alumni was
held in the " Adulphi Hall " at which
quite a number of the old graduates were
present. At 3 o'clock the class exercises
took place. We noticed a departure from
the usual custom in these being held upon
he campus, under the shide of the cl i-s
tree. First, singing by the class, with
cornet accompaniment by W. A. Wood
worth, Mr. Hadley presiding at the organ.
Miss Cooper then read the class poem,
which was fine. The class orator, H. H.
Newcomh, then delivered the oration, fol
lowing which Mr. Webster presented the
key of knowledge to the class of '82, Mr.,
CP. Thatcher responding. This was fol
lowed with a song by the class.
Immediately after the close of the ex
ercises and before tho m her had recogniz
ed bis closing duties, a few of the class of
82 commenced singing the ' Decoration
il) inn," greatly to the amusement of the
In the evening at 7: 45 o'clock occurred
prize speaking. Long before the appoint
ed time the chapel was crowded ; every
available spot was taken up, all seeming
to have one common object in view and
that was to get a good seat.
The exercises were opened with praver
by Rev. H. A. Spencer. This was fol
lowed by a piano solo, " Wandering Jew
Waltz," Burgmuller, by Miss Myrttlla
Jackson. This young lady shows by her
playing that she combines natural ability
with ease and self-possession at the piano.
The first speaker. Win, Jackson, Jr.,
appeared with " Who was ihe Victor?"
which was well done. It was quite a
difficult selection, but " Jack " proved
himself equal to it.
" Kentucky Belle," by Miss Addie M.
Carlton, was one of the very best efforts
of tho evening. The speaker was easv
Uxn the platform and acquitted herself
wilh great credit.
" Herve Rid," was delivered by J. Ward
llowland. This is the first time young
Howland has appeared upon the plat
form, but he has no reason to feel ashamed
of his first effort.
"Cicely and the Bears." was given by
Miss. Stella E. Lewis. This selection is
rather peculiar and calls forth good gestio
ulation and a good command of voice,
but Miss Lewis seemed to answer the
"American Battle Flags," by Henry A.
Phelps, was delivered in good tone. Mr.
Phelps has good gestures but a little

Clarence V. Roberts did well in ren
dering " Bay Billy," and was well re
ceived. Musio, Duett, "Qui vive Galop," Gani,
by Misses. Forrest and Gould. These
young ladies have been on the plat
form before, and always do well. The
execution was excellent.
" King Robert of Sicily." by Miss Clara
A. Hopkins, was difficult to render, but
Miss Hopkins treated it in a very accepta
The crowning effort of the evening was
"The Keeping of the Bridge " by William
A. Woodworth. Toe speaker did bis best.
The selection although an old one was re
produced with a new coloring. His ges
tures were good and appearance easy.
- Wreck of the Pocahontas." by Miss
Nancy A. Peck, was nicely given.
George O. Webster appeared with
"Toussaint L'Ouverture." Mr. Webster
bas been before the publio several times
and did what might be expected, well.
The closing recitation of tbe evening,
"The Last Hymn," was very pleasingly
rendered by Miss Orpha O. Williamson.
Tbe delivery of this selection requires a
good degree of expression, and tbe various
changesgreat control of voice, which Mist
Williamson was able to do.
Music was then furnished Trio, " Over
ture Eancredi " Rossini, Misses Jackson,
Daley and Gill; finely done.
Tbe pnblio exercises of tbe graduating
class took place Thursday, June 23d, at
9: SO A. X. The chapel was filled long he

old students, patrons, friends of the school
The stage was nicely trimmed for the
cession, the stage frame work upon the
front of tne platform used for such occa
sions being covered with evergreen, upon
ihe center of which appeared the class
motto, " A posse ad esse ;". at either side
upon shields, tbe figures io gilt, " 19," the
number in the class. In the background
there was a great profusion of house plants.
Directly over them, suspended in the cen
ter window, was a huge bell of " Nature's
The exorcises were opened wilh prayer
by Rev. Mr. MoAnn. This was followed
wiih a piano quartette, " Overture Caliph
of Bagdad," Boieldieu by Misses Gill,
Daley and Jackson and Mr. Hadley. This
was faultless, the performers keeping ex
cellent time, with good expression.
The Lalin salutatory, by W. S. Wood-
worth, was delivered in good style; pro
Essay "Masks." by Miss Zilla Stlies of
St. Johnsbury Center. She spoke of the
deceitfulness we meet with in every day
life; that we must avoid as far as possible
this feature in every character with which
we come in contact. The essay bad many
The oration "Enthusiasm," by H. A.
Hale of West Windsor, was practical in the
extreme. The oration was a well written
production, filled with good common sense.
Miss Florence L. Ayers of Barre had a
nicely writlen essay upon "Stars." Tho
subject, although lofty, was well studied,
and gave rise to some nicely framed
Music, waltz, Hortensia, Lange, by Miss
Josie C. Gill. Her oxeoution was bril

Man has his Alps," by Fred M. Sheldon,
Northlield. This was a well treated sub
ject, and brought out some very good
Essay, "Words," by Miss Myrtilla A.
Jackson of Bethel was good. We seldom
stop to consider the deep significance
embraced in a single word; how much
meaning there is in one of the shortest in
Oration, "Monuments," by George. O.
Websier ot Chelsea. Ihe speakar men
tioned the reasons for raising monuments,
their antiquity, the various purposes for
which they have been used, that we have
to establish a more lasting monument

Music, Fantasia, I Puritani, Leybacb, by
Miss Nettie Daley. Expressive and dis
played extra ability. Miss Daley bids fair
to excel as a pianist.
This was followed with an oration,
"Political Education in the United Slates,"
by R. W. Bundy ol Bethel. The speaker
maintained that above all necessities
thorough knowledge of the principles of
government should be instilled into the
minds of the young; that upon the teach
ings of to-day depends the future of our
The essay, " Choice in Language," by
Miss Carrio W. Gould of Gouldsville, was
quite a pleasing productien.
The oration, "Crossing the Rubicon,'
by uoarles A. Church of Woodstock, was
good. The speaker, afler stating the facts
in regard to the suooess of Cwsar in oross-

the difficulties we must meet and over
Miss Emma L. Cooper of Springfield
appeared to a decided advantage in the

earnest thought and deep study.

The oration, "Aspirations of the Human
Intellect," by H. H. Newcomb of East

a great one, but the speaker treated it in
an acceptable manner.

Ida R. Forrest of Waterbury, was a very
G. H. Bolster of Bellows Falls appeared
with an oration, "'The Fortitude of our
Ancestors." The oration had a good de
gree of patriotism in it whioh will ever be
appreciated by loyal hearts. It was deliv
ered in a pleasant style.
The essay by Miss Carrie O. Clark,
"The Ministry of the Hand," followed.
The subject was an odd selection, but the
essay was a good one.
Music was then furnished by Mr. Ha -ley
Valse Brillianle, Lysherg. The solo
was given in Mr. Hadley's own faultless
style. His appearance upon the stage is
of too frequent occurrence to need com
ment from the press. We will say,
however, that the insiitution may well
be proud of hiin as an instructor.
The oration, " Progress of Man," by
O. F. George of East Calais, g ive an ao
count of the gradual improvement in the
" Ioonoclasm," an essay by Miss Addie
M. Carlton of Waterbury Center, was
one of decided interest and was listened
to with marked attention.
I vers Batobelder of Worcester delivered
tbe next oration, " Publio Opinion." His
subject was well ohosea snd well treated.
Publio opinion is the controlling power in
every oommunity, and its influence is
everywhere felt. It was the power behi nd
the throne. Wherever we go it holds its
sway. "Ivers" did not disappoint his
many friends, but did well as expected.
Miss Belle M. Putnam of Montpelier
had tbe closing essay. " Mosaios " was
finely treated. She also delivered the
valedictory, which was given in good
style ana easy manner. Miss Putnam's
farewell remarks to her teachers and class
were especially interesting.
This was loiiowea Dy awarding of
prizes. Prof. Boutnwonn men stated
that the board of judges appointed to
decide in regard to the merits in prise
speaking tbe night previous (consisting of
Prof. II. A. P. Torrey of the University
of Vermort, Rev. Mr. McMillan of Birrs

Messrs. Woodworth and Bolster; Latin

The diplomas were then piesented to
the class, after which Prof. Southworth
made a few appropriate remarks. The
class numbers nine ladies and ten gentle
men, testifying to tho fact that the
insiitution is in a very nourishing condi
tion. Next the class song words by Miss
Emma L. Cooper, and music by Mr. A. A.
