I" tHE FISAL DESTINY OF THE
Encke's comet, which ifcvolves about
j the sub- iir3 years, "has been observed j
j to complete its revolution in a constantly I
shortening nerirxi. srinwlnrr tVnt ;. ; !
shortening period, showing that it is
being drawn inward toward the sun.
This fact has led to the conclusion by
astronomers that the planets are moving
in a resisting medium, far more atten
uated than our atmosphere, but still suf
ficient to affect their motions. ' If this is
so, it follows by strict necessity that our
earth and its sister orbs are all winding
spirally toward the sun, and that they
must eventually strike against it and be
come incorporated with its mass. The
time required for this purpose belongs
to those inconceivable periods with
which geology and astronomy have to
deal. The resisting medium is so ex
ceedingly attenuated that it exerts but a
slight influence on the comets, which are
themselves masses of the very thinnest
vapor, and its influence would of course
be very much less on the dense matter
of the planets. Astronomical observa
tions, with all their wonderful delicacy,
have yet failed to detect the slightest
prognssive shortening in the periods
of revolution of any of the planets. It
is curious, however, to note the multi
plied obstacles which prevent the percep
tion, of this, fact, if it does exist. All
the ' measures of these revolutions are
shortening with the revolutions them
selves.. If we begin, for instance, with
the earth, the problem is to ascertain
whether the time occupied by the earth
in its journey around the sun is gradu
ally becoming shorter. The first plan
that suggests itself is to compare this with
the rotation of the earth upon its axis,
to see whether the year occupies the
same number of days and hours and sec
onds that it did in former times. But if
tho earth is gradually cooling, it is con
tracting in size, and its rotations on its
axis are becoming more rapid; in "other
words, the day is "shortening with the
year; and if the measure shrinks just in
proportion" to 'the" thing measured, we
cannot tell whether , 'the latter is be
coming shorter or not. If we take the
time of the revolutions of the moon
around the earth as a standard, the same
resisting medium would draw the moon
toward the earth and shorten the month
also with the year. If we resort even to
the less satisfactory measure of the sun's
rotation on its axis, its bulk is also di
minishing by the radiation of his heat,
and the period of his rotation is conse
quently becoming shorter. In brief,
from the two causes of radiation and the
resisting medium, all the times and dis
tances which could be used to measure
the earth's distance from the sun (or the
period of its annual revolution) are
rtening together, bo that the differ
ences in the extent of these several con
tractions are the only means left for de
tecting -by observation the approach of
the earth to the sun, if such approach is
really taking place. These differences
would doubtless reveal themselves in the
course of generations to refined astnn
If the earth and the sun are gradua-
ally becoming cold, this winding of the
earth toward the sun would tend to keep
up its. warmth, and it may be a wise
provision for prolonging, by some mill
ions of years, the continuance of animal
life upon our globe. But this period
must come to a close, for if there is a re
sisting medium pervading the space be
tween us and the sun, the hnal destiny or
the earth is to curve gradually inward
till, with a velocity hundreds of times
greater than that of a cannon ball, it
dashes' itself with an awfully sublime
crash Into the mass of the sun. Scien

LOSS OF THE STEAMER CONN AUGHT.
The Steamer Connaught, Capt. Leich,
left Galway on the 25th nit., took fire,
while at sea, on Saturday last, 150 miles
east of Boston. She first sprung a leak,
and was soon afterward discovsred to be
on' fire. There were 591 persons on
board, and these were all safely put in
the small boats, and taken on board the
Minnie Schiffer, which vessel fortunately
came in sight shortly after it was neces
sary to abandon the burning Steamer.
The mails of the ConnagKt were all
saved, but the passengers ; and crew
saved none of their baggage, escaping with
only the clothes they wore. The Min
nie Schiffer arrived at Boston on Tues
day, with the rescued passengers. The
Connanglti sprung a leak in the engine
room, and in about five or six hours it
gained so faiuch as put out the fires.
At 9 A. M., on Sunday, smoke was
discovered from the aft smoke-hole.
Notwithstanding the utmost exertions
to prevent" it, the fire gained rapidly,
and very soon drove the cabin passengers
on deck. As the water and fire both
gained so fast the boats were got ready
to save the passengers. There was a
heavy sea running, and the first boat
that was lowered was stove. Six other
boats were then launched successfully,
and all of them filled with passengers.
About 12 o'clock, the brig . Minni
Schiffer saw the signals of distres and
immediately bore toward the burning
steamer. At 7 P. M., commenced the
task of embarking the passengers on
board the brig, that vessel having at
tached a hawser to the Steamer. At
this time the starboard side of the
steamer was very hot. By 9:30 P. M.
ail the passengers were placed safely on
board of the brig. The last seen of the
steamer was at 2 A. M. on Monday, when
she was one mass of flames. It is sup
posed that the fire had been smoldering
for a long time, from the rapid pro
gress the flames made after it was dis
covered. Capt. Leich is unable to account
for the leak which filled the vessel so
rapidly, against all the efforts of the
pumps, etc. The Connaught was built
by Messrs. Palmer Bros. & co., of ruew-castle-upon-Tyne,
and was launched on
the 21st of April, I860. She was an
iron vesael, 378 feet in length; breadth
of beam, 40 feet; depth of hold, 32 feet;
800 horse-power engines. She was 2,-
860 tuns builder's measurement, of
about 4,500 tuns burden, and was
schooner-rigged. She was on her sec
ond voyage. On her first voyage she
made the ten days. She was, in every
respect, a first-class vessel. She was
valued at 120,000, and is fully insured
in England. She had 90,000 in gold
on board Government money, taken at
St. John, which was lost with the ship.

A n nnriflnt snd Stomachic nrenarntion of IRON
u rifled of Oxygen and Carboi uy combustion in
Ivrtrno-nn. Sun-tinned bv tho highest Medical Au
thorities, both in Europe and the United States, and
prescribed in their practice.
The experience of thousands daily proves that no
preparation of Iron can be compared with it. Im
purities of the blood, depression of vital energy,
pale and otherwise sickly complexions indicate its
necessity in almost every conceivable case.
Innoxious in all maladies in which it has been
tried, it has proved absolutely curative in each of
the following complaints, viz:
In Debility, Nervous Aflections, Emaciation, Dys
pepsia, Constipation, Diarrhoea, Dysentery, Incipient
Consumption, Scrofulous Tuberculosis, Salt Rheum,
Misxnenstruation, Whites, Chlorosis, Liver Com
plnints. Chronic Headaches, Kheumatism, Inter
mittent Fevers, Pimples on the Face,kc.
In cases of Gknkral Dkbimtt, whether, the rofiilt
of acute disease, or of the continued diminution of
nervous and muscular energy from chronic com
plaints, one trial of this restorative has proven suc
cessful to an extent which no description nor written
attestation would ruider crediMe. Invalids so long
bed-ridden as to have become fjrgotten in their own
neighborhoods, have suddenly re-appcared in the
busv world as if Just returned from protracted travel
in a distant land. Some very signal instances of this
kind are attested of female Sufferers, emaciated
victims of apparent marasmus, sanguineous exhaus
tion, critical changes, and that complication of nerv
ous and dyspeptic aversion to air and exercise for
which the physician has no name.
In Nervous" Affections of all kinds, and for reasons
familiar to medical men, the operation of this pre
paration of iron must necessarily be salutarv, for,
unlike the old oxides, il ls vigorously tonic, without
being exciting and overheating; and gently, regu
larly aperient, even in the most obstinate cases of
costlveness without ever being a gastric purgative,
or indicting a disagreeable sensation.
It is this latter property, among others, which
makes it so remarkably, effectual and permanent a
remedy for Piles, upon which it also appears to exert
a distinct and specific action, by dispersing the local
tendency which forms them.
In Dysrepsia, innumerable as are Its causes, a
single box of these Chalybeate Pills has often
sutneed for the most habitual cases, including the at
In unchecked Diarrhoea, even when advanced to
Dysentery, continued, emanciating, abd apparently
malignant, the effects have beuu equally decisive
In the local pains, loss of flesh and strength, de
bilitating cough, and remittent hectic, which
generally indicate Incipient Consumption, this
remedy has allayed the alarm of friends and physi
cians, in several very gratifying and interesting in
stances. In Scrofulous Tuberculosis, this medicated iron
has had far more than the good effect of the most
cautiously balanced preparations of iodine, without
ary of their well known liabilities.
The attention of females cannot be too confidently
invited to this remedy and restorative, in the cases
peculiarly affecting them.
In Rheumatism, both chronic and inflammatory
in the latter, however, more decidedly it has been
invariably well reported, belh Is alleviating pain
and reducing the swellings and stiffness of the joints
In Intermittent Fevers it must necessarily be a

Ertsipelas, when it began ts grow, instead of black,
