Elbridge T. Gerry, in the " North Amer
ican Review," has a timely article on cru
elty to children and the work of the societies
organized to prevent it. These organizations
bsve had much to contend with, and ail
the opposition has been the outgrowth of
a wrong, or rather an unthinking, public
sentiment. Of this we have long been
convinced. The American people are es
pecially affectionate parents, and their
children cngrcea more of their love than
the world gives them credit for. Indeed,
as a rule Americans are too indulgent to
their offspring. And this brings ua to a
remark by the essayist named, upon the
engagement of children in trying public
exhibitions. lie says: "So long as per
sons of culture and refinement can derive
pleasure from tho performances of children
without reflecting en the injury which
those performances occasion the child,
there is but little hope uf public sentiment
being enlisted against those practices. The
glare of the footlights constitutes a divid
ing line between the false view entertained
\y the audience and the painful results
concentrated in the person of the child,
and sure to ensue. Yet reflecting people
would hesitate to place their own children
in a position where, night after night, such
a constant strain would be put upon them,
and the ' Golden Rule' seems to be entirely
The truth ia that the societies aro in the
main right, and the exhibitors nearly al
ways wrong. There are cases of misdirect
ed zeal on the part of the associations, and
these are seized upon to cast contumely
- upon the humane efforts made by the peo
ple who compose the societies. But it is
also true that for every case where a child
is not apparently injure! by performing on
the stage or under the canvas, there are
hundreds who arc ruintei for life by such
public exhibitions, both physically
and morally. In duo time
public sentiment will take the right direc
. tion on this subject. It is recalled that
, when the Society for the prevention of Cru
elty to Animals was founded in San Fran
. Cisco by a few earnest men who saw their
way clearly, and who did not fear to do
their duty, it was the laughing stock
of the town. It had but a friend or
two among all the press of that city,
which, with remarkable unanimity, poked
witless fun at it, and either denounced its
members as sickly sentimentalists, or feared
to speak a word in behalf of tbo aims of
the organization, which were wholly unself
ish. The venerable President, a distin
guished physician, waa the special object
for the poor jokes of the public wits.
"Philanthropic radicals," was a common
epithet applied to the officers, and "crazy
reformers and cranks" were the designations
for the members. Yet that society ia now
among the most respected of the city, and
long since tho press ceased to make it the
subject for scoffing. Bat the methods of
the organization have not in the slightest
.- degree been changed ; its procedure is even
more severe, if anything, than in the early
days of its existence. Public sentiment
has changed— that is ail there is in it. Tl—
public conscience his been educated to a •
proper appreciation of the subject. So it :
will be with the work of preventing cru
elty to children. Most of us will live to
see the day when we shall wonder that ever
any doubt was cast upon the efforts cf the
men and women engaged in the hn._s._d
work. Such men as Mr, Bergk may be j
radicals, they may be extremals, thej }
may, by zjal, be indue 3d to go to exoearre
lengths, but let ns remember that without
just each leaders bq reforms won' Iba ac- ,

compliabed. AU great moral revolutions
have been pioneered by men who, in the
| light of their day, were extremists.
The Anti-Monopoly Convention ia Chi
cago appears to have had its fill of variety.
What with Greenbackers and Prohibi
tionists, and patent law promoters, and
free traders, and protectionists, and labor
league—, and an ti- railroaders, it had M
many irons in tbe fire that they all
burned. Tha Convention met, resolved
and adjourned. It cave birth to no party,
because parties are not produced in that
way. They grow, imperceptibly at Bret.
slowly gather strength, and finally take on
form and vigor, and then they command
conventions and perhaps the nation. But
no party was ever molded to shape by a
convention like clay in the potter's hands.
They arc not the product of political ait,
or the declarations of committees. They
have their source at a point for above and
beyond ail political machinery, In the
germ, they are of ideas, that slumber. per
haps f„r decades, and then in the right
time expand and grow, and possibly, as in
one case, with phenomenal rapidity. And
so the Chicago Convention failed, as all
like it have failed, first because it was not
demanded by the people; tecondly, be
cause it could not creato ; and lastly, be
cause it was ill-timed. Wacn the need in
the economy cf our system comes for a new
party it will not be made manifest through
such a conglomerate gathering as assem
bled at Chicago last week. No doubt
there were earnest and good men in the
body, but as they started out on a false
premise they arrived at a pointless conclu
sion. They found that thoy lived, after
all, in a freo country, where there is prac
tically but one monopoly, and that most of
them were very anxious to perpetuate —
the law giving one an exclusive right to
make and vend the article be originates.
The Colusa Sun, the Democracy of which
is not to be doubted, advise 3 its party to
go more slowly in the matter of the anti*
railroad agitation. The Sun sees as far
into the future as most of its party, and
plainly discerns the collapse of the present
crusade. . It very distinctly, if somewhat
coarsely, denounces all the party in
dignation and enthusiasm, and sham
appeals in the interest of the peo
ple and the shippers, to be in
sincere, and can find no word sufficiently
thin, Hat and unprofitable, save " flap
doodle," with which to stigmatize the raid
of the chivalry upon the railroad corpora
tions. - "Flapdoodle," it confesses, "is
just what is the matter of our politics."
The Sun will find even that term too good
for application before long. The final de
liberate and irresistible aggregation of sen
timent that goes to make up public opinion,
that is controlled by no conventions, under
tho whip-hand of no politicians, subservi
ent neither to corporations nor demagogue!-,
will very soon be felt and voiced. I£ will
be a. judgment of moderation, in favor of
just settlement of such issues as exist be
tween shipper and carrier - the adjustment
of the equities between producers and the
railroads ; the establishment of such rea
sonable regulations as justice demands ; the
non- interference with the right of control
of property by the owner, and the enforce
ment instead of the abuse of tho laws.
And that judgment, by the way, will re
cite the political doom of the men the
Democratic party has permitted to mas
querade in its robes.
By all means let Republicans foster the
idea of a special session of the Legislature,
but let tho chivalry have all the glory of
calling it, since it will bo made to bear all
tho ignominy of the result that is certain
to follow. "When men begin to deliberate
they become wonderfully conservative.
A session of tho Legislature will do more
to expose the hollownesa of the present
raid, and to split the Democracy so badly
that co political skill can reunite it, and
will do more to give the State to the Re
publicans in ISS4, than any other thing that
can be devised. Kara kiri ia sometimes
pardonable, and there is no reason under
the sun why the Demooracy should net let
out its bowels with tho legislative blade.
It ia true, it will cost the State a pretty
sum, but then the compensation will be
ample. The more staid and far-seeing
Dsmpcratic papers, like the Oakland
Times, the Colusa Sun, the Los Angeles
Herald, Petaluma Courier, Lakeport Dem
ocrat, rasa Valley Tidings, Grass Valley
Union, and others, have already taken
alarm, and beseech the raiders to withhold
their hands. An extra session they see is
the last thing in the world their party
needs, and is the one thing the party
could not survive.
o;ie of the best evidences that can be
cited to prove the correctness of the propo
sition for which we have contended — that
the tariff question cannot occupy a
place in the national platform of
either party— found in the plat
forms of the Ohio Democrats acd the
Minnesota Republicans. Here are two
parties as far apart as the poles politically,
yet on the tariff revenue question there is
only a microscopic difference, if any, be
tween their platforms. The Ohio Demo
crats favor a tariff " for revenue limited
to the necessities of the Government, and
so adjusted in its application as to prevent
unequal burdens, encourage productive
industries at home, and afford just com
pensation to labor, but not to create or
foster monopolies," while the Minnesota
Republicans pronounce in favor of "a
system of duties upon imports so applied
a3 to provide revenue for the necessary
expenses of the Government, and so ad
justed as to encourage the development of
the manufacturing and labor interests of
the whole country."
A COM — a paper says :" We cannot expect much
reduction in railway freights because we have bad
very cheap fr_ghts, on account of the competition
on the river." As to passenger rates it declares the
reduction In tint county is " nearly hall." For
once a county has been found the represent;. live
journal of which admits that the railroads run
cheaply enough. The Democracy must see to this.
It wou't do to let any such facts be known. The
chivalry must work up a " boom " there at once.

Tiie Louisiana Lottery Case— Derision of
the Postmas ter-Ccncral.
: kotos, July Bth. — Postmaste-.-General
! GruSliam will to-morrow render his decision .n the
j Lonisi-uu*. lottery ewe. The full text of the same
was delivered "to the Associated Press agent to
night. After reviewing IVstoi— Ur-Genoial
Key's order tone money orders and
registered letters addressed to Dauphin, the
Now Orleans a^er.t <f the Louls-aDa lottery,
which said rconey ordfrs and letters Key
directed tbo Postmaster at (lew Orleans to return
to the writers and senders, Gresham finds that there
can I. no doubt but that Key's order wag clearly
justified by the provisions of the reused statites.
Ilia action was none— —re upon his f-übordinatc-s
and other departments of the Government so long
as the statutes remained in force. The doctrine is
now held that tho Courts wiil not interfere by
mandamus or injunction with an Exec Hive depart
ment in the discharge of its duties, unless they are
of a character purely ministerial, and involve no
exert— c of discretion or Judgment Subsequent to
the a'love order Key is-*ueii the following order to
the Postmaster at hew Orleans :
Was—Kotos, February 27, 1550.
Sir On the 13th of November, 1679, 1 issued an
order, addressed to you, forbidding tho payment —
any postal money order to M. A. Dauphin, and to
return al! later— letters addrcsEcd to him to the
postm— teis at whoso otli-ethey were mailed. _ This
party having brought suit against me to enjoin the
performance of this order, and having appealed the
same to the Supreme Court of the United States,
and having presented a certificate of the Governor
and State officers of Louiai oa that he has complied
with all the legal r qqirements of that State, and
not being satisfied from the evidence submitted *•>
me that -aid Dauphin is engaged in conducting a
scheme far obtaini money through the muils by
means of false and ■ ad mi pretensions and prom
iiics, 1 hereby authorize and direct a suspension cf
the order of November IS, 1879, so far as re'— es
to said Dauphin, until the case has been heard and
determined by the Supreme Court of li-c United
States. D. M. KEY,
Postmaster General. '
Continuing, Gresham jays: It appears that the
decision in the lower Court being against him, Key
ordered a temporary suspension of his first order
until the c— should be heard and determined by
tli.- tribunal of last resurt. K*>'-i first order was
not revoked or canceled. It was simply temporarily
suspend .1. The dismissal of tha appeal, therefore,
by the appellant's counsel, with the consent of the
Solicitor-Genera', put an end to the suspension and
restored the binding: • li.-t i i Key's first order. The
only question in the case ml tho constitutional
power of Congress to enact the statute upon which
Key acted. Upon that question Gresham says he
has no doubt the Supreme Court ailirmed the con
stitutionality of the Act, which declares: "So
letter or circular eon— mi so-called gift concerns,
or other similar enterprises; efferini prize*, shall be
carried in the mails." in view of this decision, the
constitutionality of the Act applicable to tha case
cannot be seriously questioned. Greabam concludes:
11 I have confined myself to in Iters as they appear
from the records of tie department. The first or
der will therefore he executed as if the second hid
not been entered."

M—WAUi— B, July Sth.— a temperance meeting
to-day, at which Mayor Stowcil, a Democrat in poli

State Democratic Committee addressed a letter to
Mayor Stowell cone ruing his action wilh the temp
erance people. A Convention of Democratic leaders

tude the Democratic party of Wisconsin «hall take
on the liquor question. The people of the whole

Prussia and the Vatican.
Berlin, July Bth.— The "i"...'/. Ge:~manGa:ette,
referring to Cardinal Jacobin's latest letter to the
Prussian Government, says: The diplomatists at the
Vatican are trying '.<> show that tho new church
bill is of little value. The Prussian Government
expects the Vatican to make the next advances. If
none are made, Prussia will continue her present
course independent of legislation as far as feasible
and requisite. It would have been better and more
skillful the part of the Curia's diplomatists if the
note had remained unwritten. There existed at
that time no absolute necessity far its dispatch.
The arrogant grumblings and criticisms contained
therein afford fresh proof that it vill bo impossible
to satisfy the demands of ,the Curia, and will only
result in preventing Prussia from making further
conciliatory advances.

The statue of General chary Taylor
reached Louisville, Ky., last Saturday,
from Carrara, Italy, via New York. It
was to have arrived some time last May,
but the delay was caused by the spoiling
of three blocks of marble in the endeavor
to get a perfect model. The foundation
for tho monument ia already completed,
and ia situated near the center of the little
graveyard to the side of the tomb,
lacing tho road. Around the base are
gathered tho remains of three generations
of the Taylor family. Tne monument,
resting on a rock foundation eight feet
deep, will tower thirty-four feet, inclusive
of the statue. It is made of Maine gran
ite, and has a base of eight feet square,
surmounted by a pedestal twenty-eight
feet in hight. The base is of rough, unfin
ished granite, properly designed to call to
mind the nickname of the General — "Old
Rough and Ready." Three ftces of the
die of the pedestal are highly polished,
with ono left rough, on which will be
carved in bass relief the coat-of arms of
the United States, with the implements of
war. Thia will form tho rear of the
monument. On the polished face, on
the front side, and directly op
posite, will bo engraved the full name
of the General, with the place and time of
hia birth and death, while the other two
spaces will be tilled out with inscriptions
of the battles in which he fought. The
shaft, which is fourteen and a half feet
long by two and a half square, is to be
highly polished, bearing in bold relief, in
the center -of the main face, a laurel
wreath, inclosing a bronze medallion, taken
from life, The shaft is to be surmounted by
the statue, of pure white marble. The
statue represents • the General as in life,
with full dresa military uniform, his left
hand resting on his scabbard, hia right arm
bent and resting on his chest, hia hand
holding a cap by the peak. * The head is
bare, displaying to advantage the large,
open brow and well-rounded features. The
statue ia artistically designed, and is pro
nounced a masterpiece. It ia somewhat
larger than the life size, but everything ie
in proportion, so that, looking at it from
tho base of the monument, it will be an
exact resemblance in every particular. The
granite iv the monument weigha some ten
tons. The work of laying the pedestal
will be commenced Monday, and the whole
woik wiil be completed by the end of next
week. The time of the ceremonies of un
veiling the monument ia to be set by the
committee having the matter in charge,
consisting of Messrs. Harrison Taylor,
Colonel Richard Taylor and Colonel Abe
Baford, one of hia companions in the Mex
ican war. [Chicago Times,

The Democratic Indignation Sleeting.
San Francisco. July Sth.— ma— meeting of
Democrats was held last evening in Piatt's Hall, to
pass censure on Railroad Commissioners Carpenter
and Humphreys. Tbe hall was full, and the speak
ers wete frequently interrupted by demonstrations
of approval. John C. Uurch presided, snd James
H. Barry, assisted by Julius Keimer and William J,
Hassett, acted as e-rttary. The meeting was
called to order by John T. Fogarty, who Introduced
th President of the evening. After a few remarks,
President Burch introduced the lirkt speaker of the
evening, Henry K. Higiiton. Mr. Hightun spoke
for about three quarters of an hour, and was fre
quently applauded during the course of his re
marks. He thought the time had come when the
peoplo should express their condemnation of rail
road monopoly, not only here but over the en
tire Uuited fctates. Ho Democratic voter should
be subservient to monopoly. No frffice-holder
should serve tho railroads under a false face.
Attorney-General Marshall was the next speaker.
He held that one of the greatest principles estab
lished by law was that tha public highways were
public property, and not owned by the common car
rier. Ex-Governor Irwin address the meeting,
confining himself more closely to statistics. He
said the gross receipts of the different railroads
amounted to ":-',eoO,oc.U, and the net profits $12,
500,000. This the Railroad Commission said they
had reduced -10 per cent. It was not so ; and, as
he had reckoned up, the reduction was nearer 0 or 8
per cent. Judy- Robert Ferral nude the closing
speech of the evening, during the course of which
he stigmatized the Railroad Commissioners in
strong terms. He thought th>t if Iho Railroad
-Commissioners would not resign, to make them do
bo would be a good plan. A Beriesol resolutions
requesting Messrs. Carpenter and Uumphicys to
resign, and in the event of their refusal to do so,
requesting tlic Governor to convene the Legislature
and impeach them, were passed amid great ap
plause. Confidence and tiust were expressed in
Commissioner Foote.
San Francisco, July 7, ISS3.
Mr. Julius Riemer,' Secretary Democratic Citi
sens' Committee. 501 California stre.---t— Dear Sir:
lam in receipt cf a circular net over the signatures
of John 11. Wise, " Chairman Citizens' Committee,"
and John T. fc'o-rarty, •' Chairman Democratic
County Committee," requesting me to serve as a
vice-president of a mass meeting to be held at
Piatt's 11- il this evening, "to voice the sentiment
of the Democracy of Sau Francisco on the action of
the Board of State Railroad Commissioners."
Hem the invitation couched in the terms customary
in connection With matters of this nature, I should
net deem it necessary to give any reasons for de
clining it. But when I read, in place of the ordi
nary courteous request to signify my acceptance,
the very remarkable announcement that " we shall
take the liberty of usir.g your name in this connec
tion if we heir nothing to the coi trarj ,'" I feel con
strained to explain why I refuse to give in my adhe
sion to the movement. -'.ml. 1 ;r i .--.-. to be sin
cerely and strenuously opposed as anybody else to
corporate aggressions upon popular rights, 1 do not
propose to assist in weakening legitimate resist— ice
to such aggressions by lend g myself to demagog
ical clamois, which I believe to be inspired by a
willfully blind desire to foster perse-Dai ambitions
pure and simple. Nor de I intend to embark in any
enterprise which is calculated, whether intention
ally or otherwise, to disrupt the Democratic party
and make it imp-mible to carry this State in the
coming Preside ntial election. Do not understand
me to say that 1 think all the gentlemen who arc
identified i.ith this movement are amenable t > these
accusations. I — say, that in my judgment its
chief promoters arc far from guiltless, and while
their fo'lowers may be thoroughly sincere, they i^rc
unwittingly and blindly obeying a false leadership,
which can hardly fa ; l to be disastrous to the Inter
ests they desire to see tuccestful. It is a matter of
record that only a few ilays ago the Board of bail
road Commissioners adopted a schedule of passen
ger faros wiiich effects a certain degree of reduction
from existing rites. Just how much that reduction
amounts to, or whether it will bo satisfactory to the
people when put into operation, 1 am not prepared
to say. Ido not pretend to comprehend all, or any
great portion of its details, and in my bumble
opinion there is not a single member of the " Dem
ocratic Citizens' Committee" who knows anymore
about it than I do. But I am fair-minded enough
to be willing to have it g' en a reasonable trial, an 1
am not ready to join in wholesale denunciations aud

The Horning Stars Will Sing Together.
Neptune is the morning star a_d ranks
first on the list in the order of rising, tak
ing precedence of the five planeta that
shine in the morning sky, being the only
one among them that ia invisible. Doubt
less if he were nearer he would make a
grand spectacle among his peers, for he is
the third planet in size ia the system. It
would be pleasant to get a nearer view of
him and to find out if there are not moe
moons than one acknowledging his owner
ship. But telescopes must be more power
ful before such results can be hoped for.
It will be an interesting study to note the
rising of the morning stars during July, as
they appear one after another above the
horizon. Neptune, though unseen, leads
the quintet. Mars at present comes next
in order, rising about a quarter before 2
o'clock. Saturn rises at half-past 2 o'clock.
The fair Venus puts in an appearance a few
minutes after 3 o'clock, and winged Mer
cury follows after an interval of ten min
utes. The right ascension of Neptune is
3a. 13_i., his declination 16° 10' north, and
and hia diameter ia _" s°. . • :
Neptune rises on the lit at 1:30 o'clock
in the morning. Oa the 31st his rises
about 11:30 o'clock ia tbe evening.
Mara is morning star. He is in conjunc
tion with Saturn on the morning of tho
20tb. The nearest approach is at 8 o'clock,
when Mars is about a degree and a half
north. The placets rise on that morning
soon after 1 o'clock. I They may be looked
for in the northeast, where the morning
stars hold their court. Mars is a quarter
of a degree north of the point where the
sua rises, and Saturn a little more than a
degree south of it. Saturn will be easily
found, and the ruddy planet will thine
faintly a little further north. Tho right
ascension of Mara is 3h. 2jm., his declina
tion is IS 6' north, and his diameter iao" .2.
Saturn is morning star, and is an inter
esting object for observation in | the small
hours of the morning. Observers ". will
welcome the ringed planet as bis footsteps
teed earthward, for he will take on a more
splendid appearance at his coming opposi
tion than he has done for nearly thirty
year?. - His widely open wings, his high
northern declination, and his approaching
perihelion, form specially favorable con
ditions for observation. These conditions
j will culminate in 18S5. Therefore every
[ student of the stars should make Saturn a
\ special theme for investigation during this
year i and the • two following years, for
nearly a generation of observers will : pass
from tho earth before Saturn swings round
in hi 3 orbit to the same position he now
occupies. The right ascension of Saturn ia i
4b. 12-., his declination is Iff 19 : north,
and his diameter is 15" .8. -''.-"-
Saturn risee on the Ist about ; V.30.
o'clock in the morning ; on tho 31 3t he
rises at 12:30 o'clock.
Venus is morning star. The interesting
incidents . in her progress are her near
j vicinity to Mercury in the first part of the i
I month, and her near vicinity to Jupiter in j
t c last part of tat; month. The morning
sky is alive with these charming wanderei s
in the celestial depths, whose movements
give life to the picture of monotonous
solemnity presented by the fixed stars,
and add the element of variety to the
study of the heavens. . It is seldom that
the tame planets are in conjunction twice
during the same month, but such' is the
case with Venus and Mercury. Oa the
3d, at 11 o'clock in the evening, Venus is
in conjunction with Mercury, passing
about two degrees north. Oa the morning
of the 4th they will be near caci other,
and tho exhibition will be a beautiful one,
tho planets rising soon after 3 o'clock.
Tho observer will rind them in the north,
east. Venus will be readily recognized
about a half a degree south of the sun
rise point, and will serve as a guide
to Mercury, two degrees further south.
The same placets are in conjunction again
on the S.h^ at 11 o'clock in the evening,
Venus being a degree and a quarter north.
On the moruings of the Sth and 9:h they
will he near each other, end will be worth
getting up early to see. After the second
cop junction Venus --seemingly lags behind,
and at the end of the month is sixteen de
grees west of her fleeter-footed rival. Oa
the 2C'.h, at 8 o'clock in the morning, Ve
nus is in conjuDction with Jupiter, passing
ten minutes north at the nearest point of
approach. As the planets rise on that
morning about 3:30 o'clock, an hour and a
quarter before sunrise, observers will find
them near together in the northeast, about
three degrees north of tha sunrise point,
The right ascension of Venus is Shi 5m.,
her declination ia 22° 4' north, and her di
ameter is 10". S.
Ventu rises on the Ist a few minntes
after 3 o'clock in the morning; on the
.".1 tt she rises at a quarter before 4 o'clock.
Mercury is the morning star until the
29:! i, and evening star the rest: of tho
month. On tho 24, at '2 o'clock in the
morning, he reaches his great western
elongation, bc-in^; 21 degrees 39 minutes
west of tho sun. His high northern
declination makes this the most favorable
opportunity during the year for observing
him as morning star, and his vicinity to
Venus affords a euro means of detecting
his fitful presence, so brilliantly beau 'if::
and so different from that of every other
planet that when once seen the impression
is never lost. Wo have ecr-n him as a
a brilliant white star resembling Sarins, a
delicate roße-culored star unlike any other;
and a bright golden star more fiery than
any of his companions. Mercury and Ve
rms are both traveling in the name direc
tion, eastward toward the tan, but ths
swiftest of tho planets reaches tho goal
long before the moat beautiful. Oa the
291— , at (i o'clock in the evening, Mercury
is in superior conjunction with the tun.
His short role of morning star is ended,
and, passing behind the sun, he reappears
on the eastern side as evening star, to re
peat the samo ceaseless course, varied by
the incidents that make his pathway an
unending source of pleasure to those who
love to follow his stops. His conjunctions
with Venice on the 31 and Stb have been
referred to. On the 20, h, at 4 o'clock in
the morning, Mercury is in conjunction
with Jupiter, being 32' north. The plan
ets pass each other — l the celestial track,
Mercury traveling east and Jupiter travel
ing west. They rise about 4 o'clock
and are 100 near the sun to bo visible,
observers thus missing the sight of
tbo smallest and the largest mem
bers of the brotherhood when juat
an fir .-.part as the average diame
ter i.; the moon. The right ascension of
Mercury is oh. Sm., his declination ib 19°
-10' north, and his diameter is 1" ■'-'
Meteor*" rises en the Ist about 3:15
o'clock in tbe morning ; on the 31st he scls
at 7:30 o'clock in the .ire.
Jupiter is evening star until the s'.h, and
morntug star for the rest of tbe month.
The giant planet is a busy member of the
solar community during July, as the
monthly record shows. He figures as a
chief actor in four of its principal inci
dents. He is in conjunction with the sun,
in conjunction with the moon, in conjunc
tion with Mercury and in conjunction with
Venus. Oj the stb, a, 10 o'clock in the
morning, he is in conjunction with the sun,
ia entirely hidden in his rays, passing be
hind him, and, alter conjunction, appear
ing on fcis western tide. Ho then com
mences his course as morning star, and
before the month closes will be vi3ib!o in
tho northeast shortly before sunrise.
While his superb presence will be
missed in the evening _ sky, compen
sation will be found in the beau
tiful appearacco he will present jon
Bummer mornings, increasing all the: time
in size and brilliancy. For cur big brother
is traveling toward us, and will be growing
brighter uutil he reaches opposition next
January. His conjunction with Mercury
on the 20th, and with Venus on the 2Jtn,
have been referred to. -'v
The right a— ension of Jupiter is li".
53m., his declination i.- 22" 57' north, and
bis diameter is 30' .1.
Jupiter sets on the Ist, shortly a::er7:-'0
o'clock in the evening; on tho 'Us: he
rises not far from .'.,30 o'clock in th.* morn-
ing. ,-;7'. : ■
Uranus is evening star, traveling on an
uninterrupted cou'rso toward conjunction.
The right ascension ie 1 1 'i. 23 _„ his de
clination is 4* 44' north, and his diameter
is 3" .5. •" 9 s'-
Uranus sets on the lot at 1 1 .o'clock in
the evening ; on the 31st be sets soon after
I) o'clock.
The July moon fulls on the 10:b, at 17
minutes after 10 o'clock in t the I evening.
The waning mocn is in conjunction with
Saturn (in the Ist, a few minutes before 6
o'clock in the afternoon. Crescent and
planet are at that time only twenty-two
minutes apart, but arc, of course, in
visible. The conjunction gives another
proof of the proximity of the mooa and
Saturn, In some portions of the
globe, between 14° north and 43° south
latitude, the conjunction will be an occul
tation, making the fourth oceultatiou of
Saturn that has occurred during the year.
The moon ia again in conjunction with
Saturn on the 29th at 5 o'clock in the
morning, .being forty-four minutes north.
This conjunction is an ccculation in fome
portions of terrestrial territory, between 7°
and 70° south latitude. The old moo_ ia
in conjunction with Venus and Mercury on
the 2d, being only seventeen min -tea south
of Mercury, but the conjunctions take
place in the afternoon, when the sunlight
renders them invisible, and when thay rite
the next morning the moon will have sped
on her eastern coarse several degrees. On
the 4th the moon is at her nearest pjiat to
Jupiter, on the 9 — to Uranus, on tha 25sh
to Neptane, and on the 29th to Mars.
July ia a field day among our celestial
neighbors. The most favorable month for
studying the movements of the shioiog
brotherhood that, the earth included,
makes up the sun's family, is aa rich in
incident as any month in tho year. Ex
cepting far-away Neptune and Uranus,
every planet in the system is visible dar
ing some portion of the month, and every
planet plays a part on its brilliant record.
Visitors at the seashore, among ' the moun
tains, . and in quiet country homes, will
find no more fascinating occupation than
that of tracing the varied paths of these
bright wanderers in the celestial depths, as"
they rise and set, come close together, and
travel fir apart oyer the celestial highway.
