His abilities have not been merely tested by a
solitary speech, the fruit of months* labor, and
patched by borrowed thoughts from every con

the individual who, in conjunction with one or
two colleagues at most, upholds the ancient re

Was (here lime to canvass this subject before
the People, and to fori e upon their attention the
inappreciable consequence of Virginia’s being
repicsented at this time by her most commanding
talents, and especially by men free of party en
gagements, and at liberty and determined to act
for the country, without reference to Gen. Jack
sou, Mr. Van Buren, Mr. Clay, or any other
competitor for the Presidency, there could be no
doubt of the result. Beloved in the K.»9t, res
pected in the West, admired ami valued every
where, as a citizen whose abilities have resuscita
ted the tie-lining glory of the Commonwealth,
the Penp'eol Virginia would not permit his ele
vation to be defeated by the narrow calculations
of P esideut-makers—for if defeated, such cal
culations and such only, could produce that re
sult. We have apparently assumed, that Mr.
L- i^li is prospectively Aoli-Van Buren. We
know nothing ol the matter, anil ir it oe an in
iJi-jR-nsable condition to his election that he
should favor the pretensions »f that personage,
we hope with all our heart*, t"at such is already
the bent of his inclination.— Rich. Il'liig.

The question is oak til, what has become of
th * Comet? Ai cording to the tabulation* in the
A me i n. an Almanac, ami we believe “f European
ast.ouomers also, it was nearest the earth on tiie
23 oil ami being above the horizon in ilie night,
should have been vi-mle then, if at all. Hat vi
sible it was not. Some persons have seeji slar»;
but no one, as we can learn, has yei seen the ge
nuine Cmnet.
Toar the Comet shouhl have been visilile on
the 23d ult because nearest the etirlh, is without
the slightest foundation in nutli, however plausi
b'e it uiav appear at first sight. Any one ac
quainted with ihe philosophy of light, will at
once di-« ern the iea»oti. It is a well establish
ed tact, that the nearer anv opaque both approx
imate- inwards a luminous one, the stronger will
it ieffect the light proceeding from the luminous
bodv; unless it be very small, (like Mercury,)
anil so near a* to b*- lost in 'he sun’s rays. H;*r
schel, Saturn, ami even Jupiter appear only like
small points in t e Heavens; vet they are im
mensely larger than the earth. Am! the reason
of their appearing thus diminutive is owing to
their great distance fiom the Sun. Place one of
these bodies in such a manner as to tevolve with
in the mbit of the earth, and it would appear as
tonishingly laiger ami luminous
The Comet,when nearest the earth, was at the
distance o) 51.035.921. miles from it,and 98.65.
424 from the bun It being a large body, the
diameter of which is upward-of 42.000 miles.t
ami its elongation, being sufficient to throw ba> k
its light upon tlie'eartli, it will conscquentalljr
appear brighter to us after i's ascending node,
and when about 85 millions miles from the butt.
It is well known. »o praciical astronomers at
least, that i star with the best defined horizon,
and pm.* atmosphere is not plainly disveiruble
on its fi’st ris ng. And as the Comet ri«es late,

W. have received from Washington a report
on weight*, and measures, prepared by Fred Rod.
Ilass'.er, under the direction of the Secretary of
the Treasury. It is a very elaborate and scien
tific treatise. One of the statements is a com
parison ul the weights and measures in actual
use at the present time in the various Custom
houses in the United States. The variations arc
such as to produce great inequality. The pro
portions of the bushel in some of the ports are as
follows: Frenchman’s Bay, 84j; Bath, 74; P*irt
land, 76; Saco, 80; Portsmouth, N. H. 78; Bos
't*u, 78; N«w Badfbrd, 78; Providence, 784;
New London, 78|» New York, 78|: Philadel
phia, 78|; Baltimore, 774; Washington, 764;
Cherry Stone. 83; Newbern, 874; Savannah, 76; i
Charleston, 78.
The extremes of difference are enual to twen
ty per cent, and in the weights used, to sixteen
per cent. The amount of duties varies accor- i
dingly, being sixteen and twenty per cent, as
the case may be, higher in one port than another.

the same rate prevails to-day. .

Note.—Tne weathpr throughout this month,
for it, mildness, has resembled that of Novem
ber 1830. Whereas, it will be recollected, that
the greater part ol the weather of November,
1831, was rematkably cold for the season; for
winter set in in good earnest, that month, and
continued w ith an unusual degree of severity un
til spring. The river, in that month, became
innavigable with safety, by obstruction of ice,
on the 21»f. and was entirely closed on the 4lli
of Cecember following. In fact, November,
1832, has been remarkable for the long continu
ation of Indian summer, and, to the last day of
the month, there has not been a particle of ice in
the river.
What a contrast is here:—on the last day of
November, last year, the Thermometer ranged
from 20° to 37°, ami on the last day of the same
month, this year, it ranged from 48° to 64°; mak
ing a difference of twenty-seven degrees between
the same days of the month, in each year.
Since the termination of the Asiatic Cholera
here, this place has been blessed with that de
gree of health for which - it is so remarkable —
This disease, so fatal in its consequences where
it meets a congenial atmosphere, ha9 been terri
ble in the extreme, in the more southerly parts
of the continent; and it happily appears, accord
ing to accounts received, to be still moving fur
ther from us.
I'he Comet, so long expected, has not yet
made its appearance in our latitude.
