LoiiJ'hi it W<f.
Thu dopartnvo of a bevy of lords and lord
lings, plodding members of Parliament, and
smart political aspirants, via the Atlantic
ferry, proves that too modern grand tour is
undertaken without reference to the old con
dition of membership in theTravelers’Clab—
that tho candidate must Imvo been>l,ooo miles
east of Pall Mall. When the plan of llulsldng
the education of younggentlcmcn by allowing
them to pass a certain time In the train of
a great noble at court or In tho wars went
out of date, and to trail a pike In tho Low
Countries was no longer auo of tho liberal
arts, tho cities and society of Franco and
Italy contended for tho palm, or ruthov the
plume, of fashion oucu enjoyed by Venice
alone. Young men of rank nml position still
swam In a gondola, b(it gathered wit to prac
tice on home-kcoplngyoulh in Paris and Alx-
Jos-J)iihis, nt Home. Florence, ami Turin, nml
at tho gaming-tables of tho Ulienish Prince-
Hlshops, ns well as at (ho Ittdotto In Veutcu.
At theso places tho grand tourists en
countered much compnnyut a mixed descrip
tion, They met lliu admirable Chevalier do
Hullburi, his Excellency the Count Cagllos
tro, and the pretty Lucrczla, ami tho Ulqstri
ons Giacomo Casanova, with Ids watch In each
fob, his cordon of tho Spur sometimes mis
taken for the Kalnt-Espril, with nn ucc up his
left sleeve, and his right hand ready with
cartu and tierce. They umiucsttonablyspent
a great deal of money In sham antique mar
bles nml well-doctored copies of the old
masters. If very rich they pulled down tlmlr
country ’houses and replaced them with
Pulladiun structures, such ns miniature
Temples of tho Winds, Parthemms. and
Pantheons. Nevertheless, the old grand tour
had Its uses. Thu future Peer or member
of Parliament, with or without his ‘'bear
leader,” was away from England for per
haps a couple of years. He remained long
enough in foreign countries to acquire some
idea of their language and manners; he lived
In the heat and wittiest society that existed
In the known world; nml If he happened to be
a clever person got rhi of some prevalent
English suporstUlonsalmut the playmg-llohls

man to beat three Frenchmen on any fair
held of battle.
Wo have changed nil that It Is no longer
hold necessary lo tho education of u young
man will) prospects Hint ho should passu
curtain time at tho various courts of Europe.
The prevalent craze now Is that everybody
should go to America. Tho aood-imtuml
Americans are very'fond of English folk.
They Imveshown n generous disposition over
since they beat us In vuuht-lmlldlnguml lock
■nuking In 1851, and the fueling has not been
decreased by tho Alabama award nml tho
victory of Iroquois. And they love uti
English Lord, oven If ho Is only one by
courtesy. Their hospitality Is proverbial.
They not only receive their guest, but take
charge of him, and pass him on to their
friends—in short, put him through, os it is
culled In the vernacular.
To ho put through by Americans of tho
best class Is an agreeable operation to under
go, for one Is Mtud, dined, mul dancud hi
every centre, and then passed mi to renewed
hospitalities. Until is agreeable nnUnxcit
litg, mthor than Instructive. Tho subject of
tho operation will have no time to assimilate
tho knowledge, to weigh It, or to
check It. What, for Instanoo. will
jiu gain In Uio way of insight into
the curious problem now being worked
out of the evolution of what Is practically a
negro nation from Uio wreck of n slnvohold-
Ing republic? Hu wilt llml Hint politics are

Is concerned, he will llml it, minus political

also announces that berafter
It will sell tickets from lloston, Now York,
Philadelphia, llulilmoro, and Washington to
Chicmro, at tho rules charged from Chicago to
those (mints.
This is a stop in tho right direction. Thera Is
nu reason why east-bound rates should be
higher than west-bound rates, or vlco verm.
Tbo rates from New York and lloston to Chicmro
Imvo been Imm to for some months past,
yet tho rates from Chicago to those points up to
u week ago were flO and sls respectively. Then,
again, when tho rates from Chicago toNow York
wuro reduced tofs tbo west-bound rates re
mained $7 and $!». When regular rates pruvail
tho oust ana west bound rates arc always alike,
and there is mi rcawm why a different course
should ho pursued whop rates are being cut.
Thu action of tho Pennsylvania people re
garding wont-bound rates will force tbo Van
derbilt muds to adopt tho same course. As fur
a* tho Philadelphia. Itaiilmore. and Washington
rates uro coaeetwcd, Vanderbilt tins nothing to
do with it, ns nono at bis roads run direct to
those points, mid that business almost ex
clusively goes to tho Pennsylvania and Haiti
mnre A Ohio. Tlio latter romt met tho rates of
Iho Pennsylvania ut once and yester
day morning also commenced to sell
UcKOtH to I’bllmlolphla. ‘ lialllmnru, and
Washington fur $5. Tho principal reason why
tho Pennsylvania doubled to make (he rates to
Philadelphia, lliiltiinoru. and Washington tho
snmu ns to Now York, although Vanderbilt can
not compote for business lu tlicnn points, ts be
cause Hu* selling of 55 tickets to New York and
keeping tbo rate to Philadelphia, Ilnltlmoro, mid
Washington ut double that hgure. had the effect
of greatly Injuring these points by directing
business to New York, and tho Pcmisvivaula
could nut afford to place thosoeJUcsutadlsnd
vantage.
In consequence of tho now departure by ttio

sick of doing business at tho .mures. Ills ud*

Although Vanderbilt bus thus far refused to
take any notice of the cut made on Huifnln

tho largest portion of tho llulfalo bind*

by maintaining tho llulfnln rates and allowing
tbo Grand Trunk to got away with this business
means to show that ho dues not light ttio latter

Ninth Month, Jill, 1881.—Tho great comet
(Comet D, 1881) being now,.except In tele*
scopes, a thing of the past, It may be well
to gather together tho results obtained by
different scleulllio men from their studies of
it. The comet was seen by the naked eye in
South America ami Australia at least a :
mouth before It was observed here. It was
then a much fainter object than when
it had arrived at Us perihelion, which
wits about coincident with the date
of Us northern discovery. Good observa
tories exist at lllu Janeiro, Cordoba, in
South America, and at Melbourne and .Sid
ney, In Australia. The observations of It
taken In these places. In its Incipient stage,
while nut revealing anything new im regards
Its constitution or structure, have been vnlu
*ublc In deducing the form of Us orbit and Us
identity with prcvluusemncts. The northern
observations have been more varied and
productive. They may bo divided Into
(l) measurements of position by micrometer
and transit Instrument;' (3) drawings show
ing its physical uppearnmio and changes,
made by the aid of telescopes of good detin-.
Ing power; (8) upeeiruseonlc observations
for tho purpose of «seermining Us structure
and chemical composition: (-1) photographs.
Thcllrslof these was tor tho purpose of
gaining data fur a computation of Its orbtu
The results, so far as at present deduced,
show that tho comet moves In a parabola, or
In a very much llatleneu eclipse, and that If
Uever returns it will only be after the lapse
of thousands of years. They also show that
If It has ever been hero before there Is no
record of it ho well authenticated os to iden
tify tho two objects. The bright comet of
1807 lots elements which very much resem
ble those of our recent visitor. JJnl Bessel,
one of tho most reliable and careful of com
puters, gave it an orbit which would not bring
ft around again till alter tho lapse of about
I,.VX) years, and tho points of disslmilarilyarc
too great to be reconciled; so Unit tho
identity of tho two is certainly nut estab
lished. It Ims been suggested with great
plausibility that they were originally con
nected, and that, ns in tho easo of Blula's
comet, in I£P>, they have parted company,
and got so tar separated that one premies
tho oilier by a period of seventy-four years.
The inthmuu connection between meteors
and comets makes alt kinds ofiuforcucos
from unu to tho other Justifiable, and it is
certain that meteoric homes chase each other
round and round in similar orbits, ami that
they arc, probably, formed by the disruption
of great comets. Our comet may, then, lieu
fractional part of a still greater comet which
long ago was forced by some Internal con
vulsion to shift fur Itself, and which has
since followed the wake of Its patent through
space.
Thu second class of observations were thosu
coins Into tho details of Us physical appear
mice. They lutvn shown that violent forces
have been ctmllmmlly noting within, and
render tho disruption theory probable. Thu
Cincinnati observers nt one timu uimmincud
Its split, lint by the Ulna other observers
luul the opportunity to exiiiulno tho dllfuronco
wits healed, oiTho amallcr plumber had faded
iiwav, so us hot tu reach the dignity of a
separate comet. Ureal (dreams of luminous
ga* would Issue from the nucleus. K«-
velonoH would form thomsolvcs nnmndlt and
bu dissipated. Thu masses of haze surround
ing It would shuw ever-changing shape*, and
all appearances would Indicate strong forces
operating within its muss, which forces were
stirred Into Htu by approach to thustm and
diminished by recession. There barn
been made—sumo of them published and
some filed away In observatory records—a
number of drawings of Its dllTcrout ap
pearances, which somo day will ho valuable
foundations for theories concerning Us
nature mid structure.
The spectroscopic observations have given.
In the words of william Huggins, Uto great
Kntrlish authority tn thlsthmof work, (ho
following results: “l»art of Urn light from
comets is reflected solar light, and another
part Is light of their own. Thu spectrum of
this light shows the presoued In the comet of
carbon, possibly In combination with hydro
gen.” Thu mtuletiH Is probably solid,
mid reflects solar light, just as tho moon
does, while the streamers, tho envelopes, and
the tail uru masses of carbon or hydro-car
bon gases, enduing light of their own,
besides .the proof ortho fact that comets
can he photographed, tho results obtained bv
tho camera in photographing mo emmt Itself
are not very valuable. U would at lirst ap
pear that the Impression would bu umro ac
curate iu Us details than any drawings could
po&dbly be. Amt so it would If the exposure
could be only momflMtary. but in the half
hour or Urn hour of necessary exposure the
details of (ho head omy have greatly changed.
The result is that no very detuill photographs
of tho outlines of tho bond have been ob
tained, and that tho drawings will contlmiu
to bo the reliable means of knowing its am
pearaiico at any moment, lint the photo
graphs of tho spectrum uro of the highest
utility, affording Urn means of leisurely and
certainly determining the position of tho
blight lines and tho character of tho *iile
stanees which produce them, and enabling
arn’ctroscopists to compare with ono another
llmir churls.
Sucli Is a brief summary of results ob
tained from this productive comet. Never
was one mure carefully observed or by butter
observers or instruments. Nothing new us
to comets in general has been obtained, but
old theories hum been established and amass
of observations (alum which Homo day will
much assist In settling tho still enigmatical
question as to wlmt tho origin, nature, and
purpose of comets arc. J. 8.
