This period is mm near at hand. It is
(Wimble that as many persons as possible
should be on the watch to observe its phases.
Little has yet been ascertained respecting
it, except the fact of its occurrence. There
are other particulars of which it is highly
important that we should be informed, In
order to direct observation to the most use.
ful facts, the following facts are submitted.
1. It is not to be expected that the display
will in any manner rival those of Neveinber
1833, and of the same month in the year
previous: which latter, though unobserved
in this country, seems to have been no less
remarkable than the other. It is even pos
sible that careless observers may not detect
any thing useful in the appearance of the
heavens. But, of course, in the present
state of our knowledge, we can predict no
thing of the magnitude, of the
2. It cannot, nevertheless, be questioneu,
that the shooting-stars, or metors, which
will he seen, will apparently emanate from
some determinate point in the celestial con
cave. To ascertain this point is one of the
particularsat presentment desirable. The stars
will not in general be seen to take their or
origin from the point itself, but their direc
tions, traced back, will pass through it in
every instance. In this respect the metors
will differ from the shooting-stars ordinari
ly seen , of which the directions seem hardiy
conformant to any fixed law; though It is
possible, and perhaps probable that they
may for the most part, be finally rcducea Co
3., The time of night at which the meto
ric shower attains its maximum, ought to be
noted. There is reason to believe that, in
places most favorably situated in regard to
the diurnal rotation of the globe, this will be
near sunrise. Could a multitude of observ
ations made in places distant from the eath
other, be collected and compared, we should
be furnished, bv the aid of our knowledge of
the nnint nfrniiintinn. with the means ot de
termining the lime of the nearest apprach
IWmlflTo trW-flrigin ot me meteors.
4. It has been observed that, the Novem
ber shower is punctually periodical and of
rief duration. There is some doubt as to the
complete similarity between it, in these re
spec, and that of August. The August
showei is believed to be of a continuance as
ereat as two or three days, while that of
November is but of a few hours' duration.
It would be well to observe as early as Au
gust 8, and to continue the observation un
til the 11th or 12th. On this account the
time of greatest abunlance is difficult to as
certain without many and distant observa
tions, since, to a given observer, it may oc
cur ami pass during the day."

tary of the Navy appears to have given as
gcueral satisfaction as any selection the Pre
sident could have made annus me exisience
of such intense party rancor against his ad-
ministration as characterises the present
times. There is the strongest leason why
such an appointment ought to be acceptable
to the South. Mr. Paulding, .besides his
fitness for the duties of the office, is well
known as the autho: of a work in vindica
tion of the institution of slavery, which is
decidedly the most able and convincing up
on that subject which has every been writ

was extensively circulated and read in the
southern States, and received, it we rtcol-

involving the very existence of the South is
introduced into the Presidential canvas, for
the purpose of influencing the southern

duct of the federalists in denouncing Mr.
Van Buren as favoring in the most remote
degree the abolition fanaticism, as the most
incontestable evidence of their recklessness
and desperation. And now, in view of Mr.
Clay as the opposing candidate, the same
exciting question is attempted to be renewed
as a ground of objection to Mr. Van Buren.
But if we mistake not, as the canvass pro
gresses, it will be much more difficult for
the federalists to acquit Mr. oaiy oi tne
charge of favoring the view of the aboli
tionists than to fix it upon Mr. Van Buren.
Every man certainly every politician,
who knows the principles upon which the
Executive forms his cabinet, and must of
necessity form it, knows that perfect coin
cidence of opinion between himself and his
constitutional advisers upon all the great
questions which agitate the country, is the
very first object. Other qualifications are of
secondary importance, and properly so be
cause, without harmony and concord be
tween the Executive and the members of
his cabinet, be their talents and acquirements
as great as they may, that part of the admin
istration of government which devolves up
on him, must be checked, or greatly frustra

upon the confidence and affections of the

we have merely as an evidence of the sound

correct the very erroneous impression which
the whig presses are laboring to make abroad,
that Mississippi has become irrevocably a

THE RIGHT WAV TO SUPPRESS GAMBLING?

us with the following simple method to sup
press this pest of any well regulated society:

those who are not regular gamblers, to keep

and Word are in Congress, there is a Fed
eral majority here. Nq such thing. Those
gentlemen were elected on a fraudulent and
deceitful issue. They got in by ledgerdemain,
numtnig, panic, and accident, in a lair con
test Lolonel Claiborne would have distanced
them both. Senoral Davis had not half an
opportunity. He had to pass through the
lew counties he did visit, like an express
mail rider. At this moment the administra
tion party has a majority of 3500 in Missis
sippi, all counted; and we are gaining ground
every day? Let our friends be active and
vigiiant; let them harmonne, consult and co
operate with the auxiliaries we are receiving
trom the true state rights men; let us become
one and indivisible, rallying under the ban
ner ot sine construction and reserved rights,
let us do this, and we will soon see the Fed
eral Clay parly of Mississippi reduced to a
miserable minority. It 'u in reality a bloated
carcase, puffed up by artificial heat and un
natural excitement; galvnimed into hie tor a
moment, but to show the weakness, deform
ity and disproportion of its parts. In a very
brief period, its muscles will relax and wither;
its countenance fall; it will lay supine, a
reeking and decomposed mass, and to get rid
of the revolting spectacle and in common
charity it must have the rights of sepulchre.

more shadowy, ghostly, dream-like power
never started into existence or run more rap
