Ttio Jlctorlc DIspJny A Brilliant
Between the hoars of two and four
o'clock yesterday morning, the heavens in
the cast, south-east and south-west were
brilliantly lit up by numerous meteors,
following each other in quick succession.
A young gentleman employed on the
Nashville and Northwestern Railroad re
ports that after the arrival of his train, and
while walking to his home in South Nash
ville, about four o'clock, he witnessed the
diplay, which he thinks lasted upwards of
a half an hour. The butchers in the market
house saw the grand phenomenon at an
earlier hour, and a gentleman reports to us
that he noticed a number of meteors as
early as half-paat nine o'clock on Friday
night. Last year this display was wit
nessed on the morning of the fourteenth of
November, although ithis been slated that
the period of their annual recurrence has
been almost uniformly between the 12th
The radical point from which these
showers appear to issue, says a writer, is in
the constellation Leo, that one of the con
stellations of the Zodiac to which the earth
in this part of its orbit is directly moving.
It may be seen above the horizon, in a di
rection nearly east, after midnight. It is
not to be understood that the meteors pro
ceed in fact from the constellation, but that
they are in the same lino of vision. They
are determined by astronomers to be parts
of our own solar system, which is at a dis
tance almost infinite from Leo. The star
Regulus, in Leo, is one of the brightest in
the heavens, but no parallax has ever been
detected in it. It is therefore at a greater
distance from our system than is represent
ed by the smallest angle of the parallax
the unit which is the expression of a space
which it would take light more than three
years to pass over at the velocity of 192,
000 milesa second. Lso is therefore many
times further than this immense interval,
while meteors are demonstrated not lo be
more than three lo five thousand miles
from the earth.
This is, however, a distance sufficient to
give the lines of flight a appearance of
concentrating in curves to a common point.
This is an error of conception, as they aro
undoubtedly parallel toeach other until
deflected by coming within tho almo3
phere of Ihe earth.
Astronomers of the greatest eminence
have, for a term of years been investiga
ting the phenomenon to ditcover its causes;
and during several recent years, have had
the benefit of observations made after very
careful preparation in almost every quarter
of the globe. LeVerrier and Adam?, the
discoverers of Neptune, and the Hers chels,
in Europe, and Ihe American astronomers
at all the observatories have arrived at
the general conclusion that these meteors
constitute an immense stream of. meteoric
bodies revolving about the sun in a direc
tion opposite to that of the earth's motion,
in a very long ellipse, extending from the
earth's orbit at least asfara3 the orbit of
Uranus, and tbat the periodic time of the
meteors in their own orbit is thirty-three
years and a quarter. The result of all these
observations makes the thickness of the
etreim through which the earth passes in
two hours, thirty thousand miles: and
concludes tbat the most dense portion of
the group has not yet been reached by the
earth in its revolutions.
The common observer of the heavens has
no idea of the vast number of meteors
which are always in motion. Prof. New
ton, of New Haven, estimates from his
data that the entire number which traverse
the atmosphere daily cannof be lc?s than
7,500,000; and, applying tho tame propor
tion to tsletcope meteors, gives a daily ag
gregate of 400,000,000.
Seme of these have bulk and fall to the
earth in meteoric showers. It is suggested,
and thought probable, that some of them
coming under certain conditions of force
within the attraction of the earth, may con
tinue lo revolve as permanent satelitcs.
A French astronomer announces his belief
that he has delected one of thesa bodies,
revolving round our globe reralarlv. at a
distance of five thousand miles, in a period
of 3 hours 20 minutes.
Lalo last evening we received word of a
most distressing calamity to the family of
Capt. Wm. Phillip four miles North of
this city, in the sudden death of hia little
daughter Betue, a eweet child of 8 or 10
years. I he buggy had been brought out
tor the use of some purpose, and little Bet
tie and another child were elecfullv Beated
in it awaiting its departure. From some
cause the horse became frightened, ran
away, and Bettie was thrown out, receiving
latal injuries. In this distressing aflliction
we deeply sympathize with the bereaved
family, and tender them our heart condo
lence in the fall of one so bright, so lender
and so pure.

Cotton Still Bclgns.
The cotton market was still flat, yester
day, and business generally seemed to be
in the same fix. Cottoa is still King. It
regulates every other department of trade.
When it advances trade generally flour
ishes ; when it declines everything else be-J
comes stagnant. In the present condition
of the market, the cotton speculator is not
only depressed in spirits, but people gen
erally have the blues. This accounts,
probably, for the scarcity of news items.
There is not sufficient animation afloat
to get up a respectable fight. Qur reporter
of pugilistic encounters is asked for re
turns, and he informs Tyu that there is
nothing under that head, not even a canine
altercation. Another reporter is asked to
wrilo out his robberies, house-breaking and
knock-down items, and he too has made a
water-haul. How is tho provison market?
a third is asked. Any fluctuation in goober
peas? Has flour tumbled? Is butter
strong, and iron firm, and powder quiet,
niiu wnitity eieauy i aiu uiaugca w re
port, says the dealer in facts
and figures. Well, what about
the Legislature ? Any more developments
about Senter? All quiet at the capitol, re
ports our stenographer. Senters record
is all rightand Brownlow is outwitted. So
it goes, and all owing to the decline in cot
ton. It was really so dull in the upper re
gions that the stars left theirwontcd place,
and got up early yesterday morning a grand
torchlight procession for the benefit of the
inhabitants of a neighboring world. When
cotton fell, so did tho stars, and speculators
ditto. Won't cotton get up again long
enough for buyers lo hold up their heads,
and attempt to put things again on the
eight track ? This local desires that cot
ton shall move forward, and items become
more plentiful. So mote it be.
Decision of Justice Jlnllics.
The following decision was rendered yes
terday, by Eiquire Mathews in the case of
Mrs. Catherine Creig, charged with mur
dering her child:
The court has listened with deep interest
and attention to all the evidence produced
in this case, and has given 3e weight lo
the able arguments of the counsel.
The charge ij a serious one and all ef
forts seem to have been made by the State
in relation to summoning a large number
of witnesses. Whatever might be the
opinion of the public, r.fter reading the evi
dence in regard to the duties of courts of
inquiry, as to offenses charged to have been
committed and a probable cause of
the defendant's guilt, it certainly, in
a charge of murder, must be proven
beyond any reasofcable doubt that
murder has been committed, and that
the prisoner committed the offense before
the committing Court should bind over or
commit the defendant at a large expense to
the State and county.
The court is firmly of the opinion that
the State has not made out a case of mur
der as charged in the warrant. The first
step necessary in a prosecution of this
kind was the fact of killing. The proof
shows that tho child was born Tilive and
afterward secretly buried, and even upon
the latter point the evidence is not fully
satisfactory as to the identification of the
body of the infant found in the well as
being the same one Mrs. Creig was deliv
ered of. It seems to the court almost im
possible, and no proof of a decided char
acter has been introduced or could be
introduced on that point, so that really the
question was reduced to the birth of the
child and its disappearance. Nothing
has been shown beyond the fact of the
disappearance of the child, to fix the crime
of infanticide upon the prisoner, granting
ihat the child was born alive; yet the tes
timony does not show that any critical ex
amination was made by the physician in
attendance. He states that his attention
was directed to the mother, and that ho
never looked at the child at all after wrap
ping it in the blanket and laying it on tho
bed. It appears from his testimony, that
no person was in the room when he left,
and might well be supposed in this view of
the case, that the chiid died for want of
care, the mother being prostrated and una
ble to give the child the necessary atten
tion. The court is of the opinion, from all the
facts so far introduced, are by far insuffi
cient to establish the guilt of the prisoner;
and although the circumstances developed
are of such a character to a certain degree
suspicious, I feel that I would not be jus
tified in holding her over in a bond to ap
pear before the criminal court.
I will therefore discharge the prisoner.
Reduction or Commission nml Storage
By the announcement elsewhere it will
be ecen that James Wheleea & Co,
Thomas Parkes & Co , and McCrea & Co ,
Cotlon Factors of this city, have deter
mined to reduce the storage and cemm'u
sion on cotton lo $2 per bale, and guaran
tee to make sales at highest market price,
and charge a fair commission for so doing.
The rates for storage and commission here
tofore amounted to about $1 per bale, and
the reduction is very considerable. Each
of the houses above uaraed are in every
way responsible, and what they promise to
do will be complied with.
In our issue of yesterday we gave the
particulars of the killing of a soldier
named Eberhart, belonging to the 45lh U.
S. Infantry at Chattanooga a few days ago
by a citizen named Eobiusoa. Tfie ver
dict of the coroner's jury at the inquest
held over the deceased on Friday last, was
that the two soldiers attempted to rob Rob
inson, and in the killing he acted in self
defence. An Addition to the I'eultcutlnry.

The New York Times says in its money
article of Wednesday evening :
"The market for money is fairly restored to
steadiness, and the brokers, as a rule, borrow
with ease at 7 per cent, on call, cn approved col
lateral. Tho stringency of last week and tho
high prico of money here are now being felt on
the Exchanges with tho interior markots and
the daily receipts of greenbacks by exprers,
from remote as well as from tho near eiiie-.
Even at the cotton ports, checks on N w York
have aprrociated to par(6 per cent, discount,
so that no immediate drain of currency to that
quarter need bo anticipated."

they wero urged to recommend such legislation

The New York Herald reports the dry-
goods market cn the 11th iust. as follows :
Th .m.l-.i fiirilmnastic cotton goods remains
in ., v,n.,t thacamn rondition that has obtained
for eomo weeks past, having been just as quiet
since as it was beforo election, in view ot tho
advanced state of tho season and the depression
of cotton, combined with tho low price of gold,
holders are in some cases becoming anxious to
reduce their stock, and with this view have
tna.iri iimm tirif-pj nf some of the lenain?
styles of brown muslins about Ma per yard : but
thoie who would not buy prior to the reduction
ovince no more disposition to purchase now than
they did beforo prices wero reduced. The re
ducing prices in order to stimulate tho demand
ii, generally a poor' expedient, as it Feldora in
ures that resuir. .
A r hn nrosnnt writing Quotations arc nearly
nominal, and the market is very dull, the rain
storm having intensified the previously existing
dullness and depression. Domestic woolens
,i.n,ii ui,i ihmrnun anil nuthins more. Tho
quietude in the wool market is n bad feature;
bat oa jet has not occasioned any decline. Rusi
ness has been vers ligbt and apprars to bode
creasng; but tho election called away buyers,
and the declino in gold and dullness of wool
have caused those s:ill hereto exercise great
auticn and they buy very sparingly.

C,000 bushels peanuts, together with dried
fruit and sundries.

fifteen bales of cuiton at $1 30 per hun
dred to Nowork, to be shipped from
Cairo by the Blue Line. This i3 the first
shipment of the season by this route, and
the rate makes it equivalent to all rail.
The Tyrone is due on Monday, and is
the regular packet for Cairo on Tuesday.
The alert, formerly an upper Cumber
land river packet, is now running between
Cbaitanooga and Loudon.
FBOJI OTHER TOUTS.
The Cincinnati Gazelle of Friday says :
Tho ITashvill-Packet Company's steam
er, Robert Jloorg, will leave for points on
Cumberland river to-day, with all the
freight she wants. The Havana will ar
rive to-morrow, and be the next boat in
The St. Louis Democrat of Friday says:
Tho river having risen altogether here
seven feet nine inches, was stationary yes
terday. An immediate and sudden de
cline is anticipated. There are no boats
acrround below, flic
The Belle Memphis had
seven feet water over Hat Island bar, and
the river was ruing rapidly. .Probably it
would be correct to say that there is four
and a half feet water through to Keokuk,
three and a half feet on tho lower rapids,
and four and a half in the Illinois to Peo
ria. The Missouri is high towards the
mouth. The reports circulated here on
Wednesday of a rise at the St. Joseph,
and six feet of a rise at Leavenworth, were
unfounded. The lower Illinois is quite
high, but at Peoria the awell has been
light. So far the swell at Keokuk has
been slow. Only forty inches water from
St. Joseph to Omaha. Boats do not load
here now for Omaha. Freights are scarce
for the Missouri, ar.d tbe last members of
the O line seemed yesterday onhe point
It is reported that Tom Singer is to take
the Last Chance into the trade between
this city and Clarksville.
The Dubuque Herald of Wednesday 6ays:
A further increase of two or three inches
was added to the channel yesterday, and
the stage of water is now better than usual
at this season. Navigation will dose on a
full channel and slim besinees.
The levee was cold and dreary yesterday,
and freights light. Packets are running
out of time, and are becoming uncertain
means of transportation.
The Memphis Appeal of Friday says :
The weather ia again moderating, and
yesterday was warm almost a3 before the
late cold snap. A heavy frost covered
roofs and fecces in the morning, but it was
soon dissipated. The rise has hardly
reached this point a3 yet, but we may look
for it within the next thirty-six hours. The
upper Mississippi is sweuirgvery rapidly,
and serions fears are entertained of an over
flow which will exceed that of last June,
should cold weather not set in with its
hand of ice and cnt it off. The Onio is
filling to Cincinnati and Louisville, but is
still rising slowly below with about six
feet on the worst bars. .The Arkansas is
falliu'' with three ftet to Pine Bluff and
thirty inches lo Little Rock.
