THE EARTH AS SEEN FROM
The inhabitants of the moon perceive
in their sky a gigantic star, constantly
immoveable at the same height. To
their eyes this globe is twelve times as
large as the sun, but it differs from all
the stars in being always suspended in
the same place over their heads. It
presents phases to them as the moon
does to us, passing through all the
gradations of new and ft'll earth. This
star, as we have just said, is the earth
Those who dwell in the centre of the
lunar disk behold our globe suspended
from their zemith, hovering eternally
in the midst of the starry skies. Others
see it at 70 degrees of elevation, others
at 45 decrees, as they inhabit spots
more or less removed from the centi-e of
the visible hemisphere. Those who live
near the near the border of the hemisp
here, see our globe on their horizon rest
ing on the mountains. A little further
on only half the earth is discernible,
and in passing to another hemisphere
the view vanishes for ever.
If we except the determination of
longitudes, the earth is more beautiful
and useful to the moon than the moon
is to the earth ; and if the Selenites or
inhabitants of the moon, rolling under
neath us, interpret the law of final
causes with as mnch partiality as we
do, they will have a right apparently
superior to our own for regarding crea
tion, the earth included, as especially
made for the Selenian race.
The earth is a gigantic globe, sending
them thirteen times more light than the
full moon transmits to us. It revolves
on its axis in twenty-four hours, and
during this period exhibits all portions
of its surface," being thus more generous
than the moon, which always conceals
one hemisphere from our view. In con
sequences of this 'motion, the Selenite
finds himself in an observatory magnifi
cently gitu"ated for viewing the terres
trial disk, and his position is preferable
to that of the inhabitants of the first
four moons of Saturn, who can never see
the whole of that planet ; and they can
see the earth better than we see any
The earth generally presents to them
a greenish hue, in consequence of the
immense quantity of water by which its
surface is covered, of the forests of the
new world, and of its plains, and also
on account of the tint of its atmosphere.
From time to time, however, large grey
or yellow spots divide the sphere. To
the east of the terrestrial disk appear
the lofty Cordilleras, marked by a long
idented line just as we see in the lunar
Carpathians, to the west of the Sea of
Storms. Opposite this ridge, a shady
green spot of great extent unfolds itself
for many hours ; this is the great ocean.
Next comes two grey patches, which
look like one elongated ; these are the
two isles of New Zealand. Then ap
pears the fine continent of Australia,
tinted with a thousand colors, and ac
companied by New Guinea, Borneo,
Java, and the Philippines. At the same
time the grey country of Asia is en
rolled, and extends to the white stippes
of the pole. Africa, then comes in view,
divided by its milky way of sand. To
the north of the great Sahara, appears
a little green spot torn in all directions
and full of ramifications; this is the
Mediterranean ; above which those who
have good eyesight will discern little
and almost invisible, France. (!) Then
the diy land will appear, and great dark
spots of the Atlantic will follow the
same revolutionary course. The Selentes
who carelessly contemplate in tranquil
nights the green and grey divisions of
me earth, will have no idea of- the con
tests in which the distant nationalities
The eartli is a permanent clock to the
inhabitants of the moon, and this is not
its least utility. By reason of its inva
riable movements, the fixed points
which mark the different longitudes will
be the hours on the meridian of the
moon.,Each country of the globe has
its peculiar aspect, and may serve for
points of departure.
. The phases the earth, presents to the
moon will, in the same manner, serve
as an almanac, and we may believe they
form its chief foundation. These phases
are complimentary to those which the
moon presents to us ; when it is in full
moon to us, it is ntio earth for the Se
lenites ; and when they give us a new
moon, we offer them full earth. No re
ciprocity can be more perfect and con
stant. But the phases of the earth differ es
sentially from those of the moon, inas
much as their intensity, not their mag
nitude, changes perpetually. This phe
nomenon is very terrestrial, and wem y
be sure the Selenites have judged us by
it long ago. Whilst with them all is
calm, identical, constant ; with us every
thing changes. Besides the different
lustre of different parts of the terrestri
al spheres green continents, blue seas,
f-ellow deserts, white poles, and grey
ands our atmosphere is in perpetual
commotion. One day it is covered, with
clouds, and transmits to the moon a
uniform, white light ; the day after it is
of limpid transparency, and allows the
solar light to fall upon absorbent green
surfaces. All of a sudden it will be
varied with flecculent mountains and
varied mosaics. Thus the light the
Selenites receive from the earth the
light which we call " ashy," and which
we only, perceive in the moon's early
days varies continually in intensity.
This mobility, this perpetual variation
in the aspect of the earth, will have
made the Selentians believe that the
earth is uninhabited. But on what
grounds would they form opinions un
favorable to its habitability ? They
live on a solid and stable sphere, and
can see nothing like it on earth. Can
any rational creature live upon that per
manent atmospheric layer which covers
all the earth ? A Selenites who fell
into it would be drowned. Can it be
on that sheet of green that washes the
greater portion of the earth ? Can it
be on those clouds that appear and dis
appear a hundred times a day ? And
then the earth turns with such velocity,
it is subject to so much elemental insta
bility! Moreover, can we believe that
its inhabitants are people without
weight, preserving, no one knows how,
a mean position between the fixed and
mobile elements? How can such exis
tences be believed ? Cosmos.
Infidelity of a "Wife-z-STic u Caiight in
Flagrante Delictxi by her Husband, who At
tempts to Kill her Paramour. On Monday
evening, about seven o'clock, there was a
scene at a house in Frank 6treet, in Roches
ter, which created considerable excitement.
A man named 3Iichael Burns who is a hard
working, industrious fellow, a blacksmith by
trade has for some time suspected his wife
of being unfaithful to her marriage vows,
and he awaited occular proof. Burns is in
the habit of working evenings, and on Mon
day his wife went where he was employed
and asked him if he intended coining home
to supper, which was not his custom when
he worked evenings. He told his wife he
would not be home, and she departed. Burns,
however, did go home about seven o'clock,
and in front of his house, on the sidewalk,
was his little daughter, five yearsof age, who
informed him that a man named Frank Quin
(a fellow who had been in the army and was
"a lutbitue of the police court) was in a room
with her mother. To the room the father
proceeded, quietly taking with him an ax
standing in the doorway. He saw sufficient
to satisfy him of the unfaithfulness of his wife,
and rushed into the room, striking with the
ax at her paramour. The weapon slipped
from his grasp, and he instantly caught up
from a table standing near a case knife, with
which he made several lunges at Quin. Burns
says neither of the blows took effect, but
the outside report is that the blade of
the knife entered Quin's shoulder near the
neck, producing quite a wound. Quin then
fled. Burns upbraided his wife in the strong
est terms, and told her to leave him and
uiake her way through the world the best
way she could. The little girl was taken by
her father to the orphan asylum, where he
made provision for her support, and then he
went to his Workshop and spent the entire
night in great vexation of spirit.
The Prisoners at the Dry Tortugas.
A letter received from the Dry Tortugas, on
the Florida coast, dated the 25th of the last
month, states that Edward Spangler and
Arnold and O'Laughin have been all that
could be desired as regards correct deport
ment since their incarceration. Spangler has
earnestly and industriously labored in the
carpenter shop ; has never been subject to
reprimand in any shape ; and though once
or twice indisposed and under treatment in
the hospital, has in each instance returned to
duty before required by regular discharge.
He is well, and manifests a desire to serve
out his sentence with patience. They are all
well cared for, and are represented to be
more comfortable ailrt enjoying better health,
probably, than if confined in an ordinary
penitentiary. Irons were put upon all the
State prisoners, four in number, solely on ac
count of the attempt made by Mudd to es
cape. The irons have now been removed,
and all liberty consistent with proper prison
discipline is allowed them.
The Agricultural Department has just
received, through the State Department, from
G. J. Abbott, Esq,, United States Consul at
Sheffield, England, a number of very beauti
ful specimens of raw and manufactured fibres
of China grass (Rhea,) grown in the East In
dies, and attempts to cultivate which are
now being made in England. Some bales
of Rhea fibre, lately put up for sale in Eng
land, realized at the rate of 80 per ton.
The specimens sent to the Agricultural De
partment have been arranged by Mr. Glover,
and placed in a glass case for exhibition.
As the effort is persistently made to rep
resent the National Intelligencer to be the
Administration organ, it is proper to state
that its editors are New Hampshire men of
the strictest Frank Pierce school of politics,
whatever that may be ; and that all through
the war he labored for the success of the re
bellion as faithfully as the New York News.

ALL MEN OF EDUCATION and reflection
should ponder well upon the advantages of
Lile Insurance, aud should promulgate their ac
quired knowledge throughout the whole circle of
their acquaintauce. The' should remember that
it recommends itself in many instances, not mere
ly as a measure of expediency, but as a boundcu
duty, a duty easily discharged by the payment ol
a moderate sum. " The question is : shall the mar
ried man trust the comlort of his family to a
chance? albeit a promising one; or is he n t
rather bound to make sure of a provision, as for
as l e can, for his wife, his children, his helpless
relations, for all those dependant upon him for
support, i-nd through the medium of Life Insu
rance, assure an ad'eqnate provision again: t im
pending poverty and irretrievable distress ? How
many men have I heard say : Yes, but I want to
insure for a large snm when I do insure, aud it is
not convenient now." And so, because the man
cannot gratify his vanity and pay the premium on
$20,000, he dies, and leaves his wife aud child
hou eless, sorrow-stricken and broken hearted,
thrust on the cold kiudncsa of " charitable
relations, without a cent to bury him or provide
food for themselves. And this because lie, the
loving and devoted husband, would not make
even a temporary provision, consonant with his
circumstances, for the wife who had been hi--nurse
iu sickness, his friend in distress, and whom
lie had sworn to cherish and protect, and by the
payment of 75 or SI 00, secure many thousands.
Strange that man, who owes td his wife the chief
chain of his existence, the every day comfort of
his life, should be able to look heartlessly to that
period when their last parting shall take place,
when removed to that world, where to him, all is
hope and consolation, he shall have wilfully left
in darkness and dt solation, steeped in poverty
and wretchedness, to struggle with the hard jus
tice of a hard hearted world. Resorting to Life
-Insurance is risking nothing, but truly securing a
certain profit upon that which is, at all times, an
