snisdl star following; Mars a few wf

later he looked again, ami was sur
prised to rind that the star seemed tt)
ho still following the planet. As the
distance had not increased,- while the
planet M as moving away at the rate of
fifteen seconds an hour, he therefore
made a careful series of measures,
which showed that the satellite M as
eighty seconds from the planet. An
hour later it was still there,, but Mr.
Hall juadc no further olwervatiou,
hardly crediting the prat, discovery
he had made.
On Friday morning he showed hi3
oliser vat ions to Professor Xewoomli;
who M as so confident that the object
must Ih; a satellite that he calculated
roughly the time- of its revolution,
which "he fixed at one day eight hours,
or a little less. This showed that the
object-Mould pass liehind the planet
some time during the. following night,
ami that if not seen in early evening it
Mould rcapj)car liefore daylight in the
morning. In the evening it M-as invis

tion, almut 1 o'clock in the morning
with a companion satellite. '.Professor
Hall had now so little doubt of the re
ality of the object that he made the
discovery known to Admiral Rogers,
the'1 :, superintendent. . It- M-a still
thought liest to wait for another hmk
before formally announcing the discov
ery, especially as Professor XoM-conib's
calculaiioii showed that it would lieon
the opposite side of the planet Satur

the course of th evening an object,
which might lie another satellite,
much closer to the planet, was found

resjiecting the time of its rev
olution. The oliscrvation of the first
satellite showed its time of revolution
to lie about thirty hours, "but several
weeks' oliservation will be required to
settle tliis exactly. -
Scientific authorities here regard
this as ranking among- the greatest
telescopic discoveries of the century,
the only two which exceeded it lieing
that of the asteroid group in lsul, and
of the planet Neptune in IMNi. Prof.
Hall, the fortunate discoverer of the
satellite, has been attached to the oh
servatory since In':!. .When Professor
Newcomb resigned the charge of the
great tclcsctie, in l.S7", he succeeded
to it. He is an able ami learned
mathematician, antl an unostentatious
ami conscientious observer. Professor
Newcomb telegraphed the discovery
of the satellite this morning to the Fu
ropean observatories, antl it is hoped
that the Meat her there will iorniit of
further oliservatioiis.; Professor Hall,
M ho has kept continuous M atch at the
instrument for a Meek, and who M-as
fortunate enough to make this remark
able discovery, furnishes the following
The first statellite of Mars Mas dis

and 1st h of August. The time tif the
revolution of this satellite almut Mars
is almut thirty hours, its greatest ap
parent distance from the center of
Mars is eighty seconds of arc. 1 think

however that there are fMo, and i ex

ellite in its appearance is a faint object
of almut the size tit a star ot the thir

it was imssjhle to discover it onlv hv
putting Mars, Mhich is now ex coot
mglv bright, tint tif the field of the tel
estroiie, so as to get rid of the brilliant
light of that planet.
fiio distance of the first satellite
from the planet is between 11,001 and
lo.utHl miles, M hich is less than that of
any other knoM-n satellite from its pri

tence of which the astrologers are not

During the early ., ministry, Father
Porter married Miss Hudson, ami they

further to them. After the death of
his companion, and doing . his labors
as l-'vangelist, a'tout 1.SJ1, tie married

In his family, and aronnd his table'
