She made a rapid transit on her ele vated road last Wednesday, travel ing llis 800 000 miles across the sun I in six hours. In a local point of view, however, the transit did not appear so extend ed. Owing to clouds ths first point of apparent contact of the planet with the sun was inviaible here, but it doubtless took place exactly over the intersection of the National pike with the proposed now road to Pompey Smash. At any rate ninety minutes later we turned the focus of a powerful piece of tallow-candlo-siained glass mon tho celestial picnic and found Venua coquetting with tho southwest ern hemisphere of the sun.. This was in the direction of Vale Summit. Her position varied very little, but she giadually sidled off apparently in the course she came nn, and whan the sun had reached the Musselman larm Venua bade him farewell—a long faiewell—unt 1 tne year 2U04. The sun has not been hoard from, hut it may he positively sL ted that to the paiople living on about 50,000 xni.sre milea of its sin face our own glorious ylote was totally eclipsed, j To about haif tho inhabitants of • Venn* a small dark spot, large as a UMl'le, was seen to erawl slowly; an oss ih> fonthfTn half of our west .■■ ' to j hen' hot i“, if lliev s’ id alt night I wt . esa Ih- proces-mti.
