THURSDAY, MAY 3. 1838.
ERRATA.--I some of the impressions of
our last paper, the word aliment in the edi
torial column was made to read element.
The destructive fire in Charleston of
which we give some account to-day, will
awaken the deepest feelings in our renders.
As yet we are in ignorance of the amount
of misery and distress which must be caus
ed by itj The pecuniary loss must be im
iense; an many there are who have been
reduced from a condition of ease and coi
fort, to a depth of poverty from which time
will not recover them.
Since writing the above, we have learnt
from a stage passenger, that the fire was ar
rested on Saturday afternoon, and that from
'11 to 1200 houses were supposed to have
.been burnt. We have but one reflection at
-present, to make upon the melancholy en
-tastrophe. Here indeed is a fine occasion
for ti. display of that liberal charity for
which we know our District is not deficient.
The rich should open their purses aud free -
ly give of their abunhmce to help the widow
and orphan, and ther, are few among ts so
destitute, as to be unable to aid in this truly
As our paper was !joing to press, the Au
gusta Sentinel was placed in our hands,
contaiting a minute account of the fire,
from the Charleston Courier. We can
only now give the following pnrticulars.
The loss of property is estimated at three
millions of dollars, of which about half is
piobably insured-the splendid edifice, the
new Ilotel, was insured to the amount of
$100,000. Many lives were lost-Colonel
Charles John Steedmuan, Naval officer of
the Port, ono of the most useful and en
terprising citizens of Charleston, a Mr.
Schnierle, a Mr. Monroe, a Mr. Brown, and
some colored persons. We are glad to see
that the newestores in the old burnt district
escaped with but little damage.
We return our thanks to Capt. Parker
for his communication, which we publish
this week. If our readers will permit us to
judge the matter, we have no hesitation in
expressing the humble opinion, that our
Correspondent is engaged in one of the
most interesting and useful departments of
scientific investigation. It has been said
"that the face of heaven is an unfailing in
dex, and upon it can be read times and
seasons." Though Meteorology is one of
the most natural of all the sciences, yet it
is true that there is a lamentable ignorance
* ihiNatetp nd ebetfew con rir
tively of its principles are known even to
the intelligent and well informed. Who
has not seen the hutmblo husbandman ox
hibit a foresight in reference to changes of
weather which seemed almost prophetic,
and who has not heard of the experienced
mariner who saw in "the face of heaven"
the premonitions of the gathering storm!
Who can estimate the advantages which
will flow from a more accurate knowledge
of the principles of Meteorology, and who
wildare say that this knowledge is tunt
tainable ! Until of late years but little at
tention has been directed to the subject, atnd
so little regard has been htad to principles,
that the "weather-wise" unnable to impart
their knowledge to others, had it to die with
them. But the dasy of neglect has now
} passed away. The cultivators of physical
science throughout the world, have awoke
to a sense of its importance, and in our
own country a plan has been dlevised, which
if carried out, promises the richest resttlts.
It is with pride we record tIt some of the
States of our Union have made appropria
tions for its prosecution, and we would like
- to see others imitate the good example.
Mr. Espy, a man of science and particu
arydistinguisheud for his valuable contri
butions to this department, is nowv in Wash
iton lecturing our Congress upon the sub
ject, and we were pained t'o see the bad
-taste of some members who thought the oc
casion a fit otno for smart sayings & ridicule.
This, we conceive, is not the age for such
conduct. There was a time when dlarknss,
hikdarkness overspread the earth; when
the most ordinary phenomena were believed
to be hid in the deep purpoeses of the Al
mighty, or were the mysterious workings
of some mighty Demon who reigned ascen.
dant for the season.
History tells us that the Demon Typhuon,
was in the opinion of the ancient Egy ptians
the cause of all physict,l evil, & the Gireeks
adopting the superstition, made this giant
spirit break up the deep foundations of the
earth, and with the arm of onnhipotentce
hurl the mnclting motuntains tr :,e highest
heavens. Modern science is dispelling these
gross errors anti bringing to light the mighty
agents which are at work in the laboratory
of nature, and judging from its many glori
ous triumphs in Chemistry, Astronomy,
Geology and other departments, we see ntac
howv any one can set limits to its successes.
It is no. impiety now, nor is if a useless
work, to look into the causes of thunder and
lightnintg, earthquakes, volcanoes, water
sponts, or any of the wonders around us.
When the immortal Franklin, with hi.
~ humble kite matde of two cross sticks and
asilk handkerchief, wvent out upon the com
mtaof P'hiladelthhia. to drazw tae ligA tni.g
from Heaven, who can conceive the taunts
and jeers, and smart sayings which were
made at the expense of the mad Philoso
pher. But "he did snatch the lightning
from Heaven," established its identity with
what was conceived to be another agent,
and stranger than all, from a knowledge of
its properties, brought it, to some extent,
within tie control of man. What more
hopeless, at first view. than this effort ofour
great countryman, and what siigle act of
his varied and useful life, has shed around
his name a higher lustre.
When Galvani first directed his attention
to that strange principle, which has been
called after him, Galvanism, who would
have thought that a Davy would arise at a
future time, and from a knowleder( of its
laws demonstrate, that if a copper instead of
an iron nail were used in fastening the up
persheathing of a ship, the destructive ef
fects of oxidation would be in a great mea
But we have said more than we at first
intended. Our simple purpose was, in a
few words, to impress upon the reader the
importance of physical science, and to de
clare the opinion that no field holds out
richer rewards than Meteorology. There
is such a thing as telling before hand
" which way the wind blows," and na
ture speaks a language even in the most
fickle of all things, a morning cloud.
We wish Air. Espy success in his glorious
cause. and are not ashamned to express the
liumlle opinion, that the timne will come
when rains an.d storms and teumpests and
waterspouts, &c. &c. may be predicted
with as nuch certainty as other natural
phenomena. A long series of observations,
conducted upon philosophical principles,
will be necessary to bring this period to its
full consummatton, but tie rapid advances
which have already been mmade in a very
few years, place the matter beyond question.
On the night or the 22d of April about
30 minutes after 10 o'clock, a splendid plhe
nomenon resembling a shooting star, ap
peared ir the Constellation Hercules, com
mencing a few degrees west of vega, Lyra,
shooting in a perfectly straight line, and end
ing abruptly in the remarkable nebula lie
tween mu and zeta Hercules. The light was
so brilliant as to throw around the spectator
a glare equal to that of a candle. In its
Right it exIibited the appearance of a ball
of fire, whose rapid motion through space
left a long luminous train behind. but the
instant the ball stopped, the train, from the
velocity acquired by the previous motion,
was reversed by being projected beyond the
ball or nucleus, forming two streams of
diverging light, very much resembling the
figure of the Comet of 1811. A bright streak
near the point of explosion 8 or 10 degrees
inl length, remained visible 50 or 60 seconds
after the body had disappeared.
There are some facts connected with this
omenon wich, 1-think, distingiish it
from the ordinary occurrence of falling or
shooting stars, and from which I propose to
offer a few observations.
It is a general law of meteoric phenome
na that in their Right they describe curved
lines with a downward tendency to the
earth; bult the motion of the body in ques
tion was in a straight line diverging up
wards fromn a line parallel to the plane of
the hor-in, and forming with it an angle
.of some 8 or 10 degrees. Trhe nebula or
cluster of stars which, with the suddenuness,
of thotmght, arrested its progress amid gradmu
ally absorbed its light, is one of the most re
markable int the Heavens. When view~ed
through a good Telescope it exhibits au counim
less numbher of stars crowed together in a
space apparently not more than two or
three timtes as large as that occupied by thme
Moon. Now is it not probable that thme
phmeinmenon of time 22d, wvas a Comet whose
centre of attraction was some one or all of
the stars composing thmis cluster, and by a
~raduial approach to it, and undergoing a
consequent diminuion of centrifugal force,
finally yielded to thme supemior attraction of
thme great body to which it fell, and by w-hichi
it was absorbed.
Extravagant as this idea may senm, it is
by no means at variance with the expressed
opinions of sonme of the rmost distingunished
modern Astronomers. Professor Encke, of
Berlin, by a series of observations uponi the
momtions and periodical returns of te Cotmet
which bears his nanme, has discovered that
at each successive reappearance, it is tneur
er to thme Sun, of smnalier size and tmore
feeble light. Sir John lerschell is of opin.
iomn that Comnets are bodies of exceedingly
small delnsity, and that their trains wvhichm
are mmothinmg less titan portiomns of their masses
throwt behiindl to the distance of umillions of
miles by their rapid motion in spatce, are
gradually detached and dissipated, & hence
he accounts for their diminished size and
splendor, wvhenm, by their greatcr approxi
mnat'on to the Sun, it would seem their lighat
and volume should be increased. And in
remarkimng upon the phenomena of Encke's
Comet, the same distitnguished Astronomer
adopts the gemnerally received opintioni that,
by the process of diminution which that
Comet is unmder-goinig, and consequent di
minuition of cemntrifugal force, it will ulti
nmately fall to the Sun unless previously
Th at there are thousands of Comets un
known to our system is inferred from te
fact that countless mayriads of stars glitter itn
the immntsity of space at a distanice so
gm-eat as to require the aid of the best Teoles
copes to discover them ; and as each star is
sulia :ed to be like our own Suna, a self
lunminous orb, it is limt rationial to conclude
that it is the centre of attraction amnd source
of light to other orbs, and lasa its planets
and comets and othmer phenomena analagous
to those of our solar system.

We have to delay our paper to a late :r
this morning, on account ofa most dist-t it
FIR E which has been sweeping resist h,
ly all night through the very heart of ne
ill fated city. Thto fire broke out at So
eliffe's Bakery, corner of Swinton's Lam
and King-st. in the West side of tile latter.
at about half past 8 P. M. and burnt only a
few buildings to the South and west of it.
in which direction, owing to a south-west
wind tle progress of the flatnes was arrest
ed; but to the north, north-west, nortl-east
and east, the fire was sweeping widely and
furiously when we left the scen, and there
is no saving how rar it has extended or
where it will probably stop. Except one
or two brick buildings iimediately where
the fire commenced, it has swept every
thing to the north east, as far as the corner
of Meeting atnd Markct:strcets. It has cross
ed Alecting-st. and was raging down the
south side of AMarket-st. It had burnt up to
and crossed Market-st on both sides of King
street, and is still spreading to the North.
The beautiful new Thcatre is purtly destroy
ed. The scalblding and wood work of the
new Masonic lall, at the Market was on
fire when we left the spot. The loss to in
dividuals and the insurance offices is im
hibated to exhaustion, but it would lie im
lossible for a hundred times their force to
encounter successfully such a fire. Build
