Emigration to the United States?
Tho Philadelphia Age says of tho above subject :
There has boen a very largo influx of foreign
population dining tbo prosont year. Tho number
of arrivals registered at Castle Gordon, New York,
from January 1 to tho 81st of Ootobor. is 202,440,
against 15G.151 for tbo samo period of last year-a
roto of influx which equals tho most aotive yoara
of immigration. It is deserving of noto, soya tho
United States Economist, that a very marked
ohango has occurred in tho nationality of tho popu
lation arriving at Now York. A comparatively
small proportion of the inoroaso occurs in tho ar
rivals troin Iroland, tho gain upon last year boing
only ? per cont.,' whilo in English immigrants thorn
is an inoroaso of 30 por cont.,. and in German
of about 40 per cont. Tho following comparison
shows tho number of arrivals, to tho closo of Oc
tober, from thone courtrios:
_ , , For 180?. For 1865.
.U-land. 6-3,14? 6i),8.0
The demand for akillod labor in tins country,
.occasioned by tho war, han induced o largor in
orooBO of immigrants from England this jo'?r than
is usual. Tho fact that Iroland has not increased
her onoto in tho aamo ratio as othor countrios
would soem |to bo duo very muoh to tho fact that
iho condition of tho working o?osnos in that ojuu
try is now in a stoody couran of improvemont, tho
largo doplotlon of laborers boring produood a ro
BotTon in favor of wages. Tho inoroaao from Gor
mony is very striking. As o wholo, tho immigra
tion is of a most satisfactory obaroctor, and will
.do muoh towards i ocuporating the country from
tho effoots of tho war.

Chicago, partially promised for lost night, woa a
tod disappointment, both to the curious and to tho
astronomers, as tho motcora woro ecarcely moro
numerous or brilliant than may bo seen on any
clear night in the fall of tho yoar. From olovou to

counted by Profoaaor Saflord, of tho Chicago Ob

tho constellation Loo, in the east, and to movo in
nearly o horizontal direction, though mony foil
obliquely and perpendicularly, mid tho direction
varied as tho constellation changed its position.
Ono very brilliant motoor, about 1 o'clock, started
from near tho constellation CaiiBsiprod, and, de
scribing a parabolic curve, oxtendod entirely acroas
the eastern boa vena, finally sinking below tho hori
zon. Tho first part of tho night was clear and cool,
and very favor._-.lo for investigation, but shortly
lifter 1 o'clock a haze came un, nnd tho beavens
woro aoon donsoly o.oraproau, so that no further

forty degrees below tho Konitn, and the succeed

woro token to seo tho number which carno. Only
two or threo morn were viaiblo till a quarter boforo

from tbo horizon. Tho first went eastward, tho
second westward, and the third southward, or
directly towards tho horizon. Tho bright lino of
tho path covered about fiftcon dogrcos.
Four lo Five O'clock.-Aftor four o'clock tho
shooting atari appeared in groat numbors. Thoy
went in all directions, but usually southward, and
more than half woro first aoon in tho aoulhwost.
Tho only flight approaching a "shower." which
was seen in tho course of the night, was at four
o'clock and ton minute.!. Then Chico stars darted
downward in quick succession. Ono waa excood
ingly brilliant and oft a trail which could bo soon

of ton minutes thoro woro eovon flights. Thon
they carno at longer intervals, and for about twen
ty minuto i not ouo shooting star was seen. Boforo
fivo o'clock thoro wcro eight or ten, howovcr. '.?/hey
woro noarly all small. Ono of them, which was
vory far distant, acoincd lil.o a long, thin lino of

thoro woro moro motcora than iu any of tho othor
p?riode, though in couBoquonco, partly of the early
dawn, none woro distinguished after forty minutes
to six o'clock. At about half-past fivo o'clock a

moteor of tho first magnitude shot from tho boll
of Orion, traversing about . forty-fivo dogrooa of
tho horizon, accompanied with nebulous light,
similar to that which come tory bo dio s exhibit. It
como from the east, and took a southerly direc

During tho ovening, up to half-past twolvo o'clock,
noven of those motcora, mostly from the constella

with long trails. At a quarter to ono o'clock o vc ry
largo and brilliant moteor, accompanied with o

all tho colors of the rainbow.

tbo outombed city of Pompeii is as frosh to-day
as it was threo thousand years ago. Somo o tho

broken up and mixed, reverted to its original
lustre. And yet wo pity tbo ignorance of the dark

upon tho walls of Nero's festal vault mo as fresh
as if painted yesterday. So ia tho check of tho

And in regard to metals. Tho edges of tbo
statues of tbo obelisks of Egypt, aud of tbo an

their mirinee is excoodingly liard. at) hard thal

Fiction is very old; Scott had his countorpnrl t?ro

who bivi no limo to wait for tho j)ropor forging of
