This glorious luminary is plac d liearly the centre of the orbits Ol all IIIO planets which revoFve around him at different periods and at different 'dis tances. It was, for ages. the opinion of astronomers, that the OUn Wab , muss oi lire ana inis opinion beems very plausible, -as lie amuses iignt:puin w it confesses, in the most nnrl hoof thrnnrrVi th( wHnlft rilfinptil- 1 ' " xr i -.i ry system. But, since the invention of the telescope, dark spots have frequently been . observe d upon his disc. These spots are of various magnitudes; it is computed that some are large enough to cove : the conti nents of Asia and Africa others, the whole surface of the Earl h; and oth ers, even five times its surface.- These numbers are, to all appearance, perpetually changing, so? etimes very few,. and sometimes not a t all; for, as the Sun revolves around on its axis, the spots are carried around from East to West, and the same place is only presented once in twenty-five days, ten hours; the tin: e in which he makes a complete revolution. These spots on. the sui i seem first to h,ave been discovered in the yeai lSljl, since which 'time they have constantly ; attracted at ention, and been the subjecte of investigation amoiug astronomers; anl arc ofter so large as to be seen wil h the nakec eye. This was the case i a 1 8 1 G. It respect to the nature and design o:' tbee spots, almost eVery astronomei has found a different! thoory. Some have supposed them iobc solid opaque masses of scoriae, j floiting in the liquid fire of the sun; ot tiers, as sat ellites revolving . around him, and and hiding his light; from us; others, as immense masses,; which have fallen on his disc, and whichare dark colored, because they have not yet become suiliciently heatedv; In two instan ces these spots have been seen to burst into several parts, knd the parts to fly in several directions. Dr.Herschel remarks, that these dark spots on the sun are mountains . r j-jr J.ro imnn lto cnrl'lCO ItO 91VS thnt. 1T1 upon its surface. J He says, that in August. 1792, he examined the sun with telescopes, of scleral powers, from ninety to fivc hu idred, and it evidently appeared that the daik spots were opaque grounds, or body of the sun, alad that r. he luminous parts are an "atmosphe -e which, in terrupted or broken, gii es ns a view of the sun itself.' Hence, "he con cludes that the sun has a very ex tensive atmosphere,1 which consists of elastic fluids; that are more or less lucid and transparent,' ;ind of which the lucid ones furnish i s with light and heat. It appears, from these observations, that the s in is opaque, like our earth and the lanets. This opinion seems much j more rational than the former, whicW supposed it to be of pure fire; for, ph the suppo sition that the sun isj 6:' pure, fire, it must of course have 1een wasting its light and heat ever js ince its crea tion, and would, in prpcess of time, become extinct, or at 1( ast useless as to the purpose for vhic i it was i crea ted. But if we suppos3 the body of the sun to bo opaque, and conse quently solid, we discover in it the principles oi duration.! . - , i The dimensions of tfcis dobo of light are truly astonisling. Its di ameter is 880,000 m les, which '-. is nearly twice the . dia neter of the moon's orbit. And as the spheres nrptafinrh other as i the cubes of their diameters, the sun is 1,384,472 times,, larger than oui Earth, and nearly six times larger than all ' the planets together. ;' j.! ' $ . The mean distance of the sun from the Earth is computed to be: about 9n.000.000 of miles -. the diameter of the Earth's orbit i3 therefore up-1 wards'of 190,000,000 of mdes; and the diameter of a ciircle is to the as circumference nearly in proportion of; 7 to 22, the Earth's orbit 13 about 600,000,000 of miles in circumfer ence.

We agree with the writers of this note in the belief that cotton s often afraudulentlv (packed with'out the knowledge or intervention of planters but this conviction wyl ba of little service to them, if false packing continues to I e practiced . Discovery of such frauds will certainly be made, here after, in every instance, arid dis grace must fallow in tlie footsteps ol discovery: , Memphis, Aori 28 Mr. Editor: Although wi; doubt not you have "never heard ti any frauds in picking cotton having been detected here," yet in stances ofj the kind have frequently h appen ed in this market; and more t f them this season than in any previous one. Not less than 1000 falsely packed bales have been brought to Mem phis during the past winter. We are sorry to have to undeceive you, but the facts can be proved! Cot toji is often fraudulently packed without the knowledge or infi4:veu tion of the planter, through the carelessness of his agents, negroes, alnd others under him; but) unless tlie practice is speedily and thor oughly discontinued, it will n it only injure Memphis as the best cotton market in the United States, but bring much disgrace upon the plan tcrs themselves. -I Many Cotton Dealers.

I Excluding them, the population in 1840 was 53,845, and in 1850 it was 80,055, giving an increase of 32,810, or over GO per cent. We may safely fix the population of Florida at 90,000, in round numbers, showing that there is yet abundance of room for more. Florida contains an area of 57,000 square milesj, or 37,000,000 acres.' ; f Thk Methodist Church Suit.

The City of New Orleans. i In 1717 the French government issued a j charter to "Tiie Westlern Company," gtantihg the monopoly of the trade of toiisiana for twenty five years. , .Bienville was chosen Governor, and the following year he selected I the site of New Orleans, ninety-two miles from the river's mouth, and employed fifty meii in clearing jthe ground and erecting the necessary buddings. " The next year the town was overflowed and aban doned." ( Three years afterward it f as re-occupied; and in 1723 the place contained a population of two hun dred, j ' i i I The transfer to Spain in 1793 was thought very much, to retard lits prosperity. The misfortune was partly renjedied by the opening j of the Mississippi to the States, some thirty ye irs after, and immediately i afterward to -the United States! in i 1803. I In 1810 the population was 24,552; and in 1840, 102,191. The census just taken shows a decrease since 1840; but is thought to jbe very incorrect So much for statis tics. i ; The New Orleans levee is of wood, j is two hundred feet wide, the whole length of the city, and iscertainly one ofj the f best in the United States, The wharfs for five miles are crowd - ed.with' vessels from every foreign and domestic port steamboats anc flatboats almost innumerable. The levee proper is occupied by steam- esselsj Above and below the wood en levee the j wharf ! is built j in piers, at which sail vessels are arranged according to 'their size; sloops, schooners, brigs, barques and ships, with the most perfect regulari ty. The. sail vessels fie from two' to five deep those outside!' loading and unloading, by means of ways con structed over those between them and the shore. Three thousand drays are said to be employed in the re moval oi merchandise oi every, ties - cription, and from every clime, with which the landing is crowded. During the year 1784, only sixty- seven years since,an American vessel, having j eighty bales of cotton on board, was-seized at Liverpool,; on the plea that so large kn ' amount of cptton could not have been produced in the ! United States The ship ment in 1785 amounted to fourteen baies; in 1786 to six; in 1787 to one hundred and nine; 17SS to three hundred and eighty-nine; 1789 to eignt hundred and forty-two. j Fifty years ago, an old Carblina farmer, having gathered his crop of five acres, was so alarmed at tKejr yield of fifteen bales, that he claimed,- "Well, well, I have done with cotton; here is enough to make stockings for all the people in "America." ; The cotton crop ofthe tlnhed States for 1844 was 2,300,000 bales. The cultivation of the sugar cane commenced in this country in about the middle of he last century. At that time, the go sent some of esuits of St. Domin the plaints as a pres ent to1 the Jesuits of Louisiana, ac companied by negroes well acquaint- ed with its cultivation, &nd with the process for manufacturing it into su gar. The experiment was made on a part of the ground now occupied by ! the city. Tnese Jesuits owned about one-third of the city, but when expelled in 1703 by Clemjnt XIII from the dominions of France, Spain, and Naples, their property was con fiscated. It is estimated to be worth, rt this-time, ,1G,000,000 of dollars.

VUIUVUV Xillti4Wfrva ,i . The Chinese are so punctilious that their code of etiquette outvies the most ceremonious courts of Europe. As soon as a guest alights from his sedan chair, he is met by the host, who bows his head, bends his body and his knees, j'oins j both hands in front, and with them knocks his chest. This is their mode oi shaking j ingly to us, we must say, and cer hnnfk Nmv fiilWs ft nolite contest i taiulv in the niosti musicsd of all .'still as to precedence, which, after various knockinirs,. ' bowings, and erenuflec- tions, terminates by the host and guest entering the house together. At the sitting apartment j another ceremony takes place equally pro tracted and irksome. The point to be determined is where eac't skill sit, and who shall be seated first. 1 Eti quette extends even to a decision on the size of a chair, by which ! invaria bly the rank or importance of a guest is determined. .The host now mo - 1 1 tions to a large chair and attempts to take a smaller one himself. Good breeding compels the j guest in turn to refuse this compliment ; and, after a we; iring contest of politeness, the point is amicably adjusted to the sat isfact ion of the belligerents, either by both parties sitting down simultane ously on the same! bench, orl upon j two chairs oi equal dimensions.j The ! fatigue of this courtesy may be easily conceived as the same routine is formed on the arrival of each gue: As soon as the guests are assembled, te;f is handed round in covered cups, which are placed in! silver stands in the form of a boat. ! j These are; fluted and beautifully chasedJ The cups on the occasion to which I refer were of that antique porcelain so exceedingly valued, which is a$ thin as jpnper, pure white, perfectly: transparent, and is ornamented with iobscure figures, whose dark outlines are only percept ible when the vessel is filled with tea. ! The mode of making tea in China is similar to that in which coffee is made ; in lurk1)' ike tea is put into a cup, boiling Water poured over it, and instantly covered, to prevent the es cape of the arpmn, with a lidji which is used as a spoon to sip the tea.
