Crimes ufl'ect mankind differently, as thoy indicato a more or less completo subjection of tho f-oul to tho principle of eul, or according to the extent of the wrong which is involved in them. The community breaks out in ex pressions of deep displeasure when some in stance of barbarous treatment of a fellow being has occurred in its niidet. Iiut let tho lepoit bo that a son lias murdered his mother, and every ono is struck dumb with horror. Men can hardly trust themselves to speak of it, nor to hint the punishment it demands. Wo have, this exemplified in tho condition uf tb public mind in regard to tho great iniquity now in tho act of apparent consum mation at Washington. Taking into account nil the relations of the cao, the history of the country can show no 60 atrocious an act is is involved In passing tho Nebraska and Kansas bill. Had a proposition been made 5n Congress at tho opening of tho Session, to insert in any bill a proviso to this purport that from and after its enactment, Sec. 1, Art. II. of tiro constitution of tho United States, which limits the official tenuro of the 'residential office to four years, was to have no effect, but that tho duration of tho Presi dent's offico was to bo as tho party electing him might pleaso to havo it, it could not have been mado moro unexpectedly than the intimation that tho Missouri Couipromiso a to lie swept away. Tor weeks nobody supposed such a thing could be really thought of by any one, or at least seriously entertained by any persons worthy of tho lojst respect in Congress. Gradually tho reality broke on tho public liiiud. Never before was there such an in tense f-ciieatiou produced throughout the free States. Never before was there such a flood of earnest remonstrance poured into the legil.itivo lulls in Washington, as has been, within tho last four month. Men of all political parties joined together to denounce the horriblo wrong to faith and to freedom. Wheru havo been tho gatherings to sanction it' No where. Whcnco havo come any voices of men eminent in tho nation, to Uphold it ' THLV HIVE NOT BEEN HTVItD. History wrote down the namo of one from a Free State, who would have sold his coun try's liberties for gold She wroto down also tho names of iew otiieiis from the Free Sutls, who gave the decisive votes to extend ttwciirto of Slavery to the west side cf the Mississippi. There is room cn her page of adamant yet. Sho will writo down the names orthoseoTHEiis rROM the Free States who now, for thcdirtymcssofpotugeollored to them by thotu who despise the traitors to freedom whose service thoy are purchasing, aro help ing to inflict a greater wrong on their coun try and on humanity greater, because com mitted in the T.ico of accumulated knowledge, ind accompanied with an open violation of most solemn acts of public faith. All these names in all their blackness will history point to, ages hence, when thero shall have been swept from the earth every trace of that ac cursed system which has done so much to soil tho good name of our country, and to palsy the noblest efforts for her prosperity and good influence. If the country is now horror-struck una ble to real'ue the enormity of tho wrong to which it is to be subjected, it will awako to un action which will never cease till its full vengeance has fallen upon the heads of tho guilty bo it from us, however, to suggest anything of tho sort Tho language i'll't narllt) the I same, you seo, Tho Sentinel says " In the present Inslnncd" and tho Argus says "In tho instance under consideration." (Julie a difference! No it is unanimity of opinion, that is all. The Sntur 1VII'M'. The eclipse of t lie Sun which is to occur on the Siith inst., will bo ono of u veiy in teresting character to (hose who lie in this vicinity. Tn help our reader mora easily to under.' tatid the conditions nT it, wo halo pro vulcd an accurate cut to illustrate the urtiilo I which I'ror. Thompson has obligingly fat ired us with. ' Wc supposo that all know that tu product" ' nny eclipse, however f mall, of the sun, the sun moon arni earth must bo so nearly m a lino, tho moon being between, that a straight line could be drawn from the e e of the ohsoiv- cr through some part of both tho monnaud tho sunat the same time. If tho placool thcobsciv er on tho earth and tho position of tho three bodies bo such, that a straight linn from tho observer's eye, can go exactly, or very nearly, through tho centre! of both sun and moon. the eclipso will oither he total or annular If then tho distances of tho earth moon and sun from each other aro such in tho caso just "Op posed, that tho conical shodovv of the moon reaches quite to the earth where tho observer is, tho eclipso will bo total. If it docs not reach tho earth, as Is moro olten tho caso, tho eclipso will bo annular, as in tho ono on the 20tli inst. Tho figures will almost explain themselves. The clear white circle represents tho sun, and tho shaded circlo, not quite so large, represents tho apparent si"c and posi tion ol the moon at Iho moments when the eclipso begins, at the middle of it, and at tho end. Of course the moon, though shown in the figure, will not be stcn by the naked evo at tho beginning and end, but only tho slight apparent notch on the sun's eigo where tho two circles appear; to touch. When tho ring is fully formed, tho entire shape of the moon will bo seen on the sun's disk us represented. Wo hope for a fair day when the eclipse occurs, and that thousands will avail them selves of tho easy aid of o well smoked glass, if no better means aro within their reach, to observe it with safety and satisfaction. It will bo an event worth remembering. Such phenomena aro not merely tho occa sion of a high gratification when witnessed. They aro of great scientific importance From the careful noting of tho times and con, ditions of their occurrence from ago to ago have been derived n'.ucti of the means for dc terming tho length of the solar year the dis tance and size of tho 6ini tho correct long! tudo of places on tho earth the position of the earth s track through tho heavens and many other things highly Interesting and im portant for man to know Wonderful, as it may eecm, lh.it tho begin ning, end and magnitude of an eclipse, can bo calculated so closely, it can not bo as accu rately dono as it will be, ages hence. Tho careful and exact observation of every now cue, with the best aids which the various observa tories of tho world can furnish, helps to deter mine these coining afterwards more precisely than any were determined before, and also to give additional precision to the determination of every great fact in tho wholo body of astronomical science. Without specifying all tho details belonging to a correct eeieiitilieobsenatiuuofan eclipse, we will just remark that it depends essentially on two things. irt, that a time-pieco of great accuracy should havo been provided, and so tested that the timo by it may be re lied upon to a small fraction of a second. Second, that the precise instant when, by the aid of a good telescope, tho circles of the sun and moon seem tu touch lach other nt tho beginning of tho eclipso, should lie noted. Tho same is done for the instant, at tho close, when thoy seem exactly to touch pieviuus to their entire separation. Other particulars are noted when they can be, hut the crncl times at the contacts as they aro called, in con nection with other known facts of tho solar system, furnish tho basis of the astronomer's calculations. ;Mft9o of the Sun, May 2Gth.
