In the year of 289 of out era, a comet of flie brilliancy of Venus appeared, and is said to have inspired the greatest terror. The bead appeared la be composed of several erfi all t stars, and the tail was a sword- te A comet appeared in 583 of an extra or ainary appearance. Jt is described aa "surrounded by thick darkness, and situated on a kind of opening; it shone in the midst of tbe darkness:" Tha tail waa of great magnitude, and resembled the smoke of a distant conflagration . ' In 615 a comet waa seen in China of a dusky color, the upper extremity of the tail 0. V - . . a aa. . navtng a aioa oi vioraiory motion. . It waa upwards of sixty degrees long. In 891 a great comet was seen in Europe and Asia, with a tail one hundred degrees long. The comet was one of extraordinary magnitude and brilliancy. Tbe comet of 1264 was also of remarkable size and brightness. The tail was upwards of one hundred degrees in lengta, curved in form of a sabre. In the spring of 1402 one of the finest comets on record appeared. It was so bright as to be visible at noun-day, and produeed great ter ror among the ignorant. , ,A The most celebrated comet of tbe 15th century appeared in 1472.. It came very near our globe on the 21st of January, being less, than three and half millions miles dis tant. It waa visible in full daylight, and its tail stretched across the heavens. Tha comet of 1577 waa of a bluish color with a white vapor ten degrees in length. It was the fir it whose distance from the ear th was ascertained; In 1618 Kepler discovered a cwrrjet, which exhibited eorruscations in its tailo( upwards of one hundred degrees long. The comet of 1652 almost equalled the moon in aTie, and was of a pale livid color. The cornet of 1680 was aS object' of universal attraction, the nucleus a confused mass of light, and the train extending over a vast arc of the sky. , ft. was observe' hi all parts ef tlie. World, and at its perbelion passage al most grazed the sun's surlace, moving with' a velocity of 880,000 milesan' hour," ' 1 1he comet 6T MVfl'was the most rplendi'd of tie eighteenth century. It equalled Ve nu in brilliancy, and at one time exhibited" sixJtails, emanating from the head and form ing rays like a fan. In 1769 a remarkable Cotfiet was Seen,-' with a tail curved toward' itsfextrerrilty', and one hundred degreisBhg. The comet of 1807 had a well defined plan etary disT of a ctrcuiar form, with a tail mum inilliiuis of nules ia length. The corn et of 1811 may be regarded as the most fa mous of modern times, it was visible a year and a half; nearly twice ft rrrftgffS the lorigest dtfration' tof any other comet.' In the autumn of lSfTit was conspicuous all night." "Its tail extended over ariarc of twenty-five degrees, and was six degrees Broad. In October the train exceeded one hundred millions of miles. - The nebulosity was up-" wards of one million of miles in diameter. Btro'flofKef' calcfifaled it? re-appearance in about three thousand years. . A fine comet appeared suddenly in 1819. It exhibited phases similar to the moon, and Arago ascertained (hat it shone by reflected light, fa 1825 a comet was visible for near ly an entire year. The tail rn October was frfteen degrees loft and divided rnttf two branches The nucleus was composed of three bright points. Period of revolution estimated at but re than fOm thousand jests, in Febrtfaryj 1843, a comet made its appearance in full daylight, near the sun. It presented a Splendid appearance during' the ffrst wecft in March throughout the Southern Hemisphere, It approached With in HG.'JOO miles of the sun's satiate, Tbe nucleus was ealremely bright, tail llilffy-flve degrees, as seen at Brawl, of a brilliant sil rer color, but Wllh a streak of a bright gol den hue running directly into the bead, it moved in perbelion, with a velocity of a mil lion and one quarter miles per hoar, and des cribed, in little more than two hours, one half its angular notion around tha sun. The Donati comet of 1858 presented an .pnearance that will class it among the co lossal ones 0t jonner times. Tka Last Matt. The Cincinnati Commercial notices a cu rious organ izalion of seven young men into a society, on tbe 30th of September, 1832, while the cholera was raging in that city. Their names were Joseph R. Mason, Wm. Slansbury , Wm. Disney, Jr., Dr. James M. Mason, Fenton Lawson, Henry L. Tatem, and Dr. John L. Vattien. These seven young men had met at the studio of Joseph R. Mason, who was then a portrait painter, when the conversation naturally turned on ravages of the cholera, and they got into a controversy whether the disease was contag ious or non-coutagiuus. From this they entered into a solemn com pact to meet annually, and dine together as long as they lived, and that a bottle of wine should bo sealed and drank in memoriam by the lasr survivor. The 6th ql October was agreed upon as the day on, vyhjch to hold the anniversary. The bottle, of an octagonal shape, was filled, scaled and placed in the casket and locked, and each of the men kept the key year about. Within the casket, be sides the bottle, were small slips or oiled paper, on which each of the men had writ ten his name, place and lime of birth, and place p,f residence at, that lime hia age a.nd occupation. Whoeyer held th.e fcey for the yea, was to prcAvidvUhc banquet, whether rich or poor, evsn if it consisted only of a loaf of bread and a cup of water, and it was arranged that, however the number might bo reduced by death, or absence, seven chairs and seven plates should be set at each banquet. Should any be absent, those prcseut were boynd to mak,e enquiries as to his whereabouts. Lots were cast for the keeper of the casket the first year, and it fell u, Dr. atiier. The first anuual reunion was held on the 6fth ot (October, 1833, since ' which time the full number has never besn present. On the latiiof August, 18,58,; Heiiry L. Tu'tendied, leaving Dr. Vallicr sole survivor of this sin gular club; and on the 6th of October, 1858, the ffr. took the lust solitary banquet, there being gtl six; empty chairs, and us many empty plates.

As the one hug ged his dogmas of the indefensible pcroga live of kingship, so hits the other hiifgcrd his dogmas of the indefensible pemgative of slavciv; and in the latter case as tha former the human spirit would not endure it, dis content and rebellion arose, his dynasty was unseated and was cast out to droop, de cay, aud pcrih In misery and contempt- The great infatuation of Mr. Buchanan has been the idea that all men who act upon the public atage are alike corrupt thit they Can he completely controlled by the sordi d of official salary and honor and that this control would enable him to assort and en force his own personal will upon the coun try with impunity.
