WHAT WILL CCC03IE OF US ! Tbe Sun's Evil intentions To word the Earth. From the Buffalo Express, November 10. The sun's atmosphere, say the scien tific men, 13 in a highly excited conai tion. A column of magnetic light is shooting out further, from the solar sphere, and is now stretching out forty-five millions of miles. In other words, it has accomplished half the distance between us aud the sun. The interesting question, and one which, perhaps.we donot wish any more light of this character, is, how long will it be before it finishes the rest of the distance, and bridges the ; gigantic chasm between . the earth and sun ? Is it a messenger sent out to snatch us ud as food for the insatiate monster that keeps himself warm by devour ing plannets", and whose fire-eating propensities this whole earth, would eat iof y for a few dayo only ? If 80, how long will this emissary be in reaching U3. and carrying the globe away as if we were a gigantic lump of coal for a roaring furnace f inis col umn of light at intervals indicates, its approach by fleshing and corruscating with fresh brilliancy. So decided are its effects, that two astronomers, one at London, the other at Oxford, and neither knowing the experience of the other, supposed that the dark glass of their telescopes had been broken or put out of range, so strong was the flash of golden light upon the vision. It is predicted that before the end of next year, this magnetic light will have got near enough to us to make its immediate and actual influence upon the earth distinctly felt. It is announ ced that in consequence we may ex pect to see phenomena that have nevr er been seen or known before by the human race. If any of our readers are, therefore, yet disposed to complain of the weather and the earthquakes, et them remember that by this time next year, they may have an entire new line of experiences to explain and endure, in comparison with the fitful winter and rough rude autumn or to day may seem like a June morning In paradise, and tne eartnquaKe s sqock, and lightning's storm, a placid rock ing in the cradle, with a pleasant lui- aby of thunder. A Li ving Headless Child. ' The Deposit (N. Y.) Courier is re sponsible for the following marvelous story: ' In the vicinity of Spoon river, ill., is a child that was born and has lived five years without a head.

Theehock affected her greatly. . When her child was born there was not a semrjiance oi a neau about it. The limbs are perfectly de veloped, and the shoulders where the head and neck should be is smoothly round off. But the most surprising thing of all is that the face is situated in the breast. Of course there being no neck,the pow er of turning the head is wanting, ex cept as the whole body is moved ; but this diriculty is overcome Dy tne sin ular faculty it possesses of turning its eves in their sockets, enabling it to see Quite as well on either side of those rrnt more periecuy iormea. me upjer portion of its body is white as the rnirest Caucassian: from the waist downward is blood red. .

Members of Congres are thick here, setting their houses in order for the session. Whether it is so or not, ev erybody believes we are to have a fes tive winter. The belief comes in part from the fact that the session is to be one of that longer order not limited by Lae fatal ideas of March. Lvery day we are hearing either of some new notable who will entertain, or of some parvenu who will become notable through entertainment. Fish, and hia assistant secretary. Fernando ood and a score or more are among the number. Then, Corcyran's new hotel, the Arlington, is to become a grand center of attraction. The entire town is cantericg around that. All about ther for a square or two, under the shadow of its loftv eaves, will make such a court circle as Washington has not known formerly, i or a beggarly Italian to get his peanut stand in the edire or It will be to bein cood ocietv : at least it is likely to be so regarded here, where society regulates itself by very strange caprices. I have spoken with half a dozen .gentlemanly ele phants already, who, by the right of long purses, propose to take winter quarters at the Arlington. Great business shrewdness was evinced in the choice of this euphonious name. it roils under the tongue like an aris tocratic morsel, and to Mrs. Pastedia monds will be irresistible. Inside of this huge show temple there will be gathered, from January to April, more members or the v eneering family man ever Knotted together in one Washington hotel before. "Vive lea bagatelles, vanity and velvet trains!" will be the motto of that house. Meantime, at the other end of the capital is heard, these two weeks, the unceasing sound of hammer and trowel. The last repairs are being put upon the Capitol, and the carpets are being laid in the legislative chamber. This laying of carpets is the last touch to the Capitol before the coming of a Congress. A Brussels carpet lasts the House of Representatives just three years ; tne benate, four or five years. in proportion to size, the two Cham bers have about an equal populous ness of members. Rut your Congress man in the Lower House Is always waiKing the noor.shuming his feet.ex pectorating on the carpet, and uneasy generally until he gets into the Sen ate, where they have better poised manners, if not morals. This accounts for the difference of time in wear of car pets. They are putting down a master piece of New Euglish Brussels in the Representative Hall, a massive green threaded with gold. This carpet is expected to last a year longer than CEmp, look out for the tapct. On the whole the Capitol will never have been plas tered and polished so elaborately as for the coming session. It has been repaired inside and outside during the summer, wir.n a Pwtt without stint. Taking everything into consideration It 13 now the completest palace in th world. All a man's bodily and men tal needs can be furnished inside of it Sleeping on the luxurious sofas of hi fii . s a. committee room, oy tne light and warmth of hickory-wood fires, draw ing for his intellectual wants on the great library, and for those of the stomach on the splendid saloons be low, a bacheloi Congressman, with quiet tastes, would not have to go ou I. , r-. . oi me ouiiuing irom i7ecemuer unti May. It might be well If the constit uents of some of them would swear them before coming here to keep tiie wunin sucn pruaent limits. Ihe old Hall of Representatives Is now fully perfected for a gallery of art. Visitors halt in it longer than in any part of the Capitol, to see the famed bronzed doors, the chariot clock, winged history, above them the fres coed superb vault, and last of all the most magnificent piece of statuary in the building, the marble figure of Al exander Hamilton. As the history of art lengthens in the nation, this beau tiful hail will be filled with the works of native artists. Hereafter it may well be an American artist's ambition to see his production there. We want no more such statuary as we have been accustomed to see there, models of Crawford and others of which Powers said truly that they were exe cuted. Closing for the present this sketch of Washington winter preparation. the prospective now indicates that Arlington House and the Capitol building will be the two model points of our societythe former for a d isplay of the vanity of women, the latter for the vanity of men. Local Papers. Horace Oreely's opinion about newspapers is worth that or all crea tion besides. He .sometimes gives it for those who imagine they can do without such auxileries.'1 The Tribune is as much the friend of provincial journals as it Is the reflex of national opinion, 'ihe loiiowing backhanded slap he gives in the face of those who Imagine local papers worthless, and will be read and copied with eagerness by tbe entire press of the country : Nothing is more common than to hear people talk of what they pay newspapers tor advertising, etc., as so much given in charity. Newspapers by enhancing the value of property In their neighborhood and giving the localities in which they are published a reputation abroad, benefit all such, particularly if they are merchant or real estate owners, thrice tne amount yearly of them eagre su m payed for thei r support. Besides every public spirit ed citizen has a laudable pride in hav ing a paper of which he is not asham ed, even though he should pick it up in rcw York. A good looking thriv ing sheet helps property, gives char acter to the locality, and in many in stances, is a desirable public conven ience. If from any cause tho matter in the local or editorial columnsshould not be your standard, do not cast it aside and pronounce it good for noth ing, until satisfied that there ha3 been no more labor bestowed upon it than is paid for. If you want a good reada ble paper it mu3t be supported. It must not le supported in a spirit of charity either, but because you feel it a necessity to support it. The local press is the power that moves the peo ple.

Though the Demo cratic papers represent him v.s takin; hla reverse camiy and serenely, I am confident that the opposite ii true. Ode associated quite intimately 'with him when he was President, assures ne that he never knew one who took; disappointment so much at heart. He fully expected, pays my Informant, to receive the Presidential nomination of Tammany last July, and for a long time previous bent all his movement to that end. His failure to be nomi nated not only keenly dissappointed, but exasperated him. Soon after the adjournment of the Convention, Mr. , a well Known Democratic pou ician, called at the White Houho to solicit aid for the party in Pennsylva nia. After ha had stated the object of his visit, Johnson replied lu a petu- ant manner, '.'I don't care a d n what becomes oj the Democratic par- y, x nave done ail I am going to for it." SECRET OF JOnXSON'S FALL INTER VIEW .WITH PILLOW. Said one to me, the other day, who occupied a prominent position in the Confederacy, and who ha-j always been an ardent hater of Jchn?on. "People have never fully understood how it was that Johnson tscanie alien ated from his party. The troutio wa, his head waaeomTiletr'jturrt 1 vhM ne got into the W hite "lious-o. He had always been looked upon a.s a rep resentative of tho poor white element of the South. His election as United 8tates Senator was regarded asa tri- -uraph over the aristocracy by himself and plebian and 'psrtician alike. The old "high tones" of Tennessee never associated with him or manifested any disposition or purpose to award him social recognition. When, therefore, these "high tones" came humbly be fore him, supplicating pardon, tho old villain's head was completely turned. To thus have those who only a few short years before held themselves so- cially far above him, now kneeling before him In the attitude of suppli ants, filled hi3 vanity and conceit to overflow. He was filled with the airs of a dictator, and so came to think he could act independent of the party which elected him. The gentleman then proceeded to describe a meeting between General Pillow and Johnson at the White House, he being present. rinow nau been cne or the aristocrats of Tennessee, one Who could not have thought for a moment of permitting his family to associate with Johnson's, after the latter had become Senator even. Johnson wanted the cratilica- tion of pardoning him. of peeing him on his knees. He invited Pillow to call at the White House and foe him. The latter came, and, on being Usher ed Into the reception room, sat down on the lounge, my informant being already in the room. Johnson ap peared with a sinister chuckle on his face. After passing the coraplimenta of the day he walked slowly up and down the room, waiting for Pillow to ask his pardon, to humiliate himself before the whilom mean white repre sentative of his own State. Pillow hated to crave the boon, hesitated, and talked abound the matter before coming to it. Finally he seemed to summon all his resolution and reques ted Johnson to pardon him ; and then, with a look of exultation and triumph, he bestowed the coveted boon. . The opinion expressed by my informant in regard to the case of Johnson's alienation to his party will Certainly strike the reader as deser ving of consideration. A Chinese Weddlny. A Chinese wedding came off at Grass Valley, California, a few weeks since. The Union thus describes tho couple married : "Tin Ti made his appearance at the church first and alone. It i.-j not high toned among the Chinese for the brido and groom to be present together at the marriage ceremony. He wa dressed in a dove-colored blouse, knee breeches, blue stocking, fancy shoes and embroidered skull cap. Tin Ti having departed from the church, tho bride came up in gorgeous toggery. having her hair set up in a ridge across tho middle of her head, from front to back, with paste and largo- gilded pins, some six inches high,, 'allee same rooster's head," as an ir reverent Chinaman remarked. Be- ow her head she wore a frock, which hung loosely from her shoulders, and made of fine silk. This was looped up under her left arm to one dollar's worth of gold buttons.
