OUR HtrW YORK LETTER.
Nw York, Jul y, 1881. To tbe Editor of tbe Khtbspbhb. Following up the example of Qnlte&u I hear of an attempt made to shoot Gov. Cornell by a crazy blacksmith. He appeared at the capltol u Albany with an old shotgun in his hand andi was about to enter the building when he was stopped by the superintendent, to whom he said he was the Adjutant-General of the State and was commissioned by the highest power on earth to shoot the Governor. A struggle ensued for the possession of the gun, which would not have been of much use to the would-be assassin, for it was found to be unload ed and generally out of order. And this Is not all, for this morning news comes of an attempt on - the lite of Got. Plllabury, of Minnesota, by a wealthy contractor made hi sane from Guitean's act. When is this? sort of business to cease? , . . v The railroads are still cutting rates and now adopt the rebate system, under which you .buy a ticket giving the reg ular full tare, and at the point of desti nation the company repay the difference between the full and reduced rate .of fare. This is done to prevent people from buying a ticket to Chicago, for in stance,' when they , are only going to Sufialo, to which latter place the reg-. nlar fare Is more than the reduced rate to the former place. A genUemaa bought one of these reduced rate tickets the other day, before the rebate system was adopted, for Cincinnati, and ' was going only to Rochester, K.T. He sent his baggage to the depot and had It checked, as he supposed, for Rochester, and on arriving there he found that it had gone on to Cincinnati. The cheap ticket in this case was not bq cheap after all, as he had to pay the express ge on the baggage for it return. At a well-known depot for books and papers, I noticed, the other morning, a stupendous pile of Scribner's mid summer number. ; In the evening the pile had disappeared.- The next day It was the same, and the next. And no wonder. The magazine has surpassed itself. Nothing more beautiful was ever printed. The reading mtter,s usual, under the fastidious eye of Dr. Holland, Is brilliant, crisp, refined, while the Illustrations are simply exquisite. The topics treated are all interesting, and the artists with pen and pencil have certainly pot forth their best efforts. It Is a liberal education to read Scribner's. No home should be without the fresh numbers and no library is complete without the bound volumes. The Society for the Prevention of cru elty to children have an important pro secution on hand, and one that deserves more than ordinary notice. A brutal waiter at Delmonico's, named Eissner, has an eleven year old son, whom the father thinks be can bring up better with the use of a club than by any other and more human methods. The boy's screams the other day when his father was flogging him attracted the attention of the neighbors, one or two of whom rushed to the rescue of the boy and begged the father to stop his brutal work, but it was. no use, and being women they were powerless to compel him. Finally the police were called in, the boy released from the -ropes by which he bad been tied, so that the punishment might be more severe, and the brutal father borne off to a police court, where, in default of bail, he was locked up. He will be indicted by the Grand Jury and tried, when I trust the full measure of the penalty will be dealt out to him. It Is rumored that Vanderbilt, the railroad king whose magnificent new palace on Fifth avenue is nearly com pleted, intends to purchase the lot on the other side of the avenue just oppo site,' and on which stands the Roman Catholic Orphan Asylum, for the purpose of making it an extensive garden for his own private use . The price said to have been offered for the property is. half a million dollars a pretty large amount to pay for a flower garden, bat as his in come for only four weeks will pay for it, it doesn't seemo very extravagant after all. RaDTT. r ' r Parchasable Health. From Banbeaa foe iifart.' It Is often said, when a rich man dies, that all the money iu the world cannot purchase the prolongation of life. It is often, said, too, when a ,rich man's health breaks down, that money will not purchase health. As general pro positions, however ,boththese statements are unsound. When expended at the right time nd In the right way, money will purchase health and the prolong ation of life. Money will not purchase peaches out of season, but money will purchas peaches when they are in the market. Money will ' not purchase health out of season, but health la to be bad for money under the proper con ditions. When a machine is actually worn-out, it Is beyond the reach of re pairs. Nothing will do but complete renewal. So, when a man is worn-out, money will .not renew him, 1 but' there are always times in his' life ' when, by the proper expenditure of money and of time which is Us equivalent, he can buy health and the prolongation of life. 'There are thousands of men in New York City, and in every great city, who are perfectly aware that they are bank rupting themselves in health that they are selling their berlth for money. The time will come, at last, when they .will be willing to pay all this money back for the health they have parted with, but it will be too late. The object of this article is to induce these men, if possi ble, to buy health while it is in the market, and not to sell it under any consideration. Col. Thomas Scott car ried the burden so long that four mil lions he had won had no power, to bring back the health he parted with ; but there are undoubtedly times in his life when, by proper expenditure of money and of time, he could : have bought health enough to last him a brace of decades longer, and to enable Mm to double the number of his mil lions for his heirs. A man crowds bis powers through a series of vears of ex cessive labor, and, some day, be drops with paralysis, and from that day for ward he beoomes a powerless child, to be led kindly and carefuilv to the grave. The increase of this disease is undoubt edly the result of the increase of un wisely conducted labor. Honey can do nothing for it when it befalls a man, but it can do everything to prevent iu Nervous prostration" has become a too : T3 familiar phrase in these latter years. Money cannot restore a aliattered ner vous system, but, properly expended, at the proper time, it will prevent it, which is a great deal better. Harper for August. ' , & . u .--v ....

Proctor'e reputation, and denies in the name of his friend and of scientific men in gen era!; that the distinguished Englishman ever uttered the prop hecy.-, which is eur-. rently fathered upon him to the .effect, that in the present year a comet was to come and destroy the earth. "Of course Mr. Proctor never could havadonethia. since he himself has -brieuy rumd-p4 all that is known of comets in such a way that anything can be predicted con cerning their action. Astronomers, he says, can tell what path a oomet is trav eling upon, and say whence it has come and whither it win go; they can in many cses predict the periodio returns of a .cornet, . and analyze he subtanae, of these - strange wanderers, -nd they have recently discovered a singular bond of . relationship ' between omets and those other strange visitants from the celestial depths the shooting stars. But astronomy has tiitbertq prcss4vJVt; able to determine the origin of comets, the part they perform in the economy of the universe, their real structure, the causes of the-.mArvelcKiex-bAjigaspf shape which they undergo' as they ap- S roach the sun, rush round him and len retreat. Its believed that this statement by Professor Proctor is not strictly accurate, spectroscopic analysis having shown something in relation to the component elements of some comets from which something has been inferred in regard to their structure, and it being known that the quantity of matter which they contain is, not very greaWj that the highest oloud that floats in the earth's atmosphere on. a fine day In sum mer is a dense body wheni ' bonrpared with a comet. . It has been conjectured that comets aodmetortte,by,falUpgiArq the sun, keep np the heat of the central luminary of our system, bat at present the weight of opinjon seems to be against this theory, ndeomefgV having ever been kcown to fall into the sun. It should be remembered, also, that those people who dread destruction to the earth from comets commonly are put into the fear by the notion that these wanderers to the sun from beyond the confines of the orbit of Neptune may Strike the earth and so by the force of f the impact knock our ancient mother out of time, so to say, and into space, or might set heron fire, whereas thereto some reason to believe that comets haVd before now graz?d the earth without do ing her any injury and without having any appreciable effect upon her what ever, y In faot, ahesfaas- probably,. hart them more than they have' hurt her Whatever real danger to the earth is involved in an approach of a oomet to the sun Is to be ought, however, in all probability in the hypothesis that so great an increase in the sun's heat would follow the fall of a comet into the Bun that life on the earth would be burnt but, in, which case if we were ever to have an inhabitable globe again a new supply of living germs would have to come from outer space, borne on the wings of Sir William Thomson's me teorites. . It is, likely that the tenor of comets which is always felt by ignorant people is purely traditional, iaudNeomes. down from the time when ' these1-- bodies Arern looked upon as being unlike the stars and planets, in that their motions, ap pearances and disappearances were thought to be purely arbitrary and un governed by physical laws, or if not strictly arbitrary, then to be governed by the power of the gods who sent them as portents nearly always of calamity and seldom remarable comet is a portent star of Bethlehem. ' At all events. Prof. Proctor, who has somewhat elaborately treated of this subject, savs that "the star in the East" mentioned' in the New Testament was, in his opinion, a comet. "It is," he says, "'not easy to under stand what else it oould have been." ."The way in whi(ihjtppeared to go .belorvthd. wisV mea whin (di rected by Herod, be it noticed) they went to Bethlehem, almost due south of Jerusalem, would correspond to a me ridian culmination low down for the star had manifestly not been visible in the earlier evening, sinoe we are told that they rejoiced when they saw the star aeuin.

In a stmQat. way both Pingre and Lalande guessed it waa the comet now known as that ol 1680 which, is mentioned in the prayer of' Anchises in the neid as having ap peared before the" fall of Troy, but the whole description1 given of this appeal ance by Virgil is rather that of a meteor or globular lightning - than of a comet, whose advent, nowadays' at least, is not commonly ushered in by a clap of thun der., i Moreover, when Encka went over the- calculation of Lalanafl relative to this matter he found them, to be wrong by the trifle. of years. : Jr. Senile mann's excavations at Troy hare dons more to. establish the existence and fall of such" a city than Km ever, been wxe taeir cue iron noeis. ids oomei of, 43 J..'

' But it K after all, not impossible that famine and wars might' follow on the track of a- large comet approaching the sun closely.

This truly jtccurate description was giv en only about A century before the birth of Sir Iitand Newton. - Astrologers are a long-lived folk, and it is but the other day that an esteemed contemporary printed a letter from one of them show ing why it was that the year 1881 should be .deemed peculiarly portentous. Ac cording to Newton the danger which threatens the earth from oomets is not that they will .strike the earth, but that one of them may fall into the sun ; and according to some astronomers the sud den solar outburst witnessed by Carring- ton ana ciiodg9en tn September, 186y, wasdu fo-tie opposed fact that then light. were artistically used to support the doctrine that the outbursts whereby some of the fixed stars that is to say, some of the suns have from time to time blazed up with unusual brilliancy were occasioned by the impact of com ets upon them.
