Chinese Aetronemy.
From Once a Week. ,
""A mot "remarkable book, which can
not tail to have much iuterest for others
besides professed astronomers, has late
ly been published. It is entitled 'Ob
xprvfttions on Comets, from B. C. 611 to
A. T). 1K40." and is by Mr. John Wil
liuma. Assistant Secretary of the Royal
Astronomical Society. The portion of
the book most interesting to general
readers will be the introductory remarks
on subjects which have occurred relating
to Chinese astronomy. If we may trust
the antiquity of the books from which
the information is gained and Mr. Wil
liama sees t no reason to consider them
less trustworthy than the early histories
of any countries the Chineso possessed
considerable astronomical knowledge in
v(rv ancient times. It must, however,
be borne in mind that the correctness of
the account given entirely depends upon
the deirrea of credence to be placed in
the " Shoo KW-Mine of 'their rive
nlassiral works which is considered
bv thai Chinese' as their most ancient
book, and we know it was revised by
Tnnfucius about the sixth century a. t,
Ti antinuitv is not onlv believed in by
the Chinese themselves, but by some of
the best Kuropean scholars, and is borne
out by its archaic style and construction.
Mr. Williams mentions several tests by
wich. the) accuracy of these accounts
may be verified." One of the most inte
reatinir is the following: "In the
rhineim annals it is recorded that in the
J reign . of Cboen Kuh, tthe grandson of
flwaug xe, in tne epriug ui mo jot.
the first day of the first moon, a con
jnnction of the five planets occurred in
the heavens! in ling bniu. ringamri
nr am At more usually denominated
Shihi ia one of the twenty eieht stellar
divisions determined by a, b, and other
atara in Peeasus. extending north and
south from Cygnus : to Piscis Aus
tralio." and east and west seven
teen degrees, " and comprising parts
of our signs. Capncornus and Aquar
ina TheEmberor Chuen Kuh is said
ta hiiia rpifnad neventy-eight years
front li. G. 2613 toHSfy and. to have
died in his ninety-frftn year; ana irom
modern computations I believe by M.
Killr the French astronomer it. has
been ascertained that a conjunction of
the five planets actually did take place
about the .time and within tha limits in-dicated-v-that
is, on the. 29th of Septem
ber, 24 19 B. C, being the sixty-fifth year
of Chuen Kuh. Should this, on further
investigation, prove correct, it will atlord
a strong presumption of the authenticity
of the early Chinese annals, as there is
no appearance of their astronomers hav
ing been at any time able to compute
thn nliipen' of the' nlasets so far back.
and the account is found in works pub
lished lonar befora any intercourse with
Europeans had taken place. "i )

It' has been noticed and mentioned
that lor some weeks there has been a
large quautity of violets for sale on the
Boulevards OI raris, ana mat to wear a
violet in tho button-hole is as common
as to have that bit of red ribbon there
which indicates that the wearer has re
ceived the little Cross of the 'Legion of
Hone. Keen observerSj who also know
the past, reaaember that in 18M-15, after
the first Restoration of the Bourbons
and tbe absence of Mapoleoa .in Klba,
the violpf was the favorite i micht gay

It was Thursday night, and the fair
Swede wasrehearsine the part of "Ophe
lia" in the opera of Hamlet.
The Academy looked gloomy enough.
A conservatory is dull place without
flowers, and so is a theater without gas
light and pretty women and diamonds,
and all that sort of thing. The place
looked like a huge tomb, aud the galle
ries of the , " gods " , were as dark as
pitch; the seats in the balcony and
boxes covered with brown Holland; and
the orchestra illuminated by extempo
rized yets. Scattered here and there
through the orchestra and circle were a
few of the friends of tho performers or
of the mauaeement.
On the stage, a beautiful scene of a
river, with reeds and flowers on the near
bank, and in the distance a castle and
forest. The wines were full of scene
shifters and .chorus-singors, looking
frowsy and rough in red flannel Shirts,
with matted bair, unbuttoned vests and
dirty boots. ' Nearer the foet-lights arc
four of tho dancers that formerly shook
their legs in the Black Crook. They
are dressed in stage attire, with less tulle
underskirts than usual (because they
cost so much to wash) and there is Van
Uamme, the dancer, in a suit of blue
linen, attending his pretty wife, , It is
the last scene in Hamlet, and the mad
Onheha is near her death.
M'lle Nilsson 'wore a short walking
dress of scarlet auk and black overskirt,
while her . head was . enveloped in
shroud. She looked a very ordinary lit
tle woman, but exhibited a great vivacity

and a muruugu auuwiuucui uoi part,
and of the orchestra's Dart as well.
, She stands close to the leader, Maret-
zek, who is excited, and wears a high
hatand thick overcoat. . , ...
Now all is ready. The, soft swell of
the music is heard. Nilsson, in a care
less, easy way, triJls a few notes, rushes
forward, and like a startled fawn gazes
into the deserted galleries. Hut the
spell is broken by the fiddlers; they are
"out," aud her face changes. She
stamps her foot, and casts a Took of ter
rible scorn at tbe second nddie. . . ,
Maretzek rises tn bis seat, points at
the man with tbe trombone, and says:
"God d n sooch museek?"
Now they commence again, and Nils-
son sings and beats time with tbe back
of one hand upon the palm Of the other,
now conducting the baas, and continu
ously exciting the leader. Nilsson seolds
him, and he in turn scolds tho man
nearest to him, and so it works all round
The opera is near its close, and part of
the orchestra la sent upon tbe stage.
Than low, sweet strains, as though from
some distant. . land, reach tne ear.
Ophelia leaves them to wander on to
ward the river. She parts the rushes,
reclines, and in a few moments, floating
out upon the waters like tbe Christian
martyr is the body of the mad and lovely
Opheliar '.
It was beautiful: but when we went to
make a closer examination, we found
that only a "supe," upon an old sofa,
had been drawn across tbe stage.
aiBMila- Peraeeatiosi ot tbe Jews
A correspondent writes to the London
papers: lue latest news trom itou
mania is truly heartrending. Great as
have been the cruelties committed at Is
mail, they were by far exceeded by the
horrors perpetrated at Cabal. This is a
town with a population of about 7000,
1000 of whom are Jews. These were
suddenly set upon by their felloe-townsmen,
and for three days beaUn( wounded,
plundered, driven out of their houses.
wliich were battered to ruins, aud the
tenants forced to hide in the barracks,
where, instead of being defended, they
wuro airain beaten, and for several days
left without food.-ln these tumults heads
were split open, arms broken, beards
plucked out by the roots, and rapes com
mitted. One of the sufferers named
Gold, more courageous than tbe other
victims, defended his house for three
days, his four son standing by him. He
made them aff.ear that, should he fall,
ther would continue to cht. 1 he bands
surrounding his house were for a con
siderable time held at ba by (bese brave
men, but they were at last comoeiieu !"
give way, as tu yjimms set hre to the
premises. Tbe damage inflicted on
these Jews is valued at 40,000 ducats.
Tho two synagogues were devastated
and filthily polluted, and the sacred
objects found scattered around 10 all di
reuiious. My informant, whose veracity
may be relied on, adds: 'The sufferings
of tha Jews of Cabul were horrible.
Language fails to depict what they bad
to endure. I cannot suppress my tears
when I recall these sufferings. And
then continues: 'They say there' is
scarcely a village in the whole Bessara
bian Roumania where there have not
been frightful scenes. The misery is
dreadf'il, help is needed immediately.'
My informant then urges that a mass
meeting of oilinens, without distinction
of religion, should be forthwith conventd
in tbe metropolis, - in order to protest
against fbese scenes, whiah threaten, as
Passoi-er approaches, to be even more
frightful. , '

' My advice is to marry at quickly as
possible, for none but those who are, un
happily, versed in snch matters can be
aware of the manifold minor, to say
nothing of the major, evils which a long
engagement entails. I be position of an
amanced pair, after a time, becomes at
most ridicnlous. Premature congratu
lations are poared forth by some over-
enthusiastic friends, while others cease
to believe in the reality of an ultimate
settlement, and become suspicious of tbe
sincerity of your professions, and almost
personally anronted at your delay.., men
the difficulty of sustaining, with appro
pnate effect, the obaracter of an en-
caired man is somewhat enormont.
1 say nothing of tbe difficulty which a
lady in that delicate position nas to en
counter, for we all knoi that they expe-
rience but little difficulty in making
themselves perpetually agreeable at
least before marriage: but with .regard
to .a man, think of the amiable and ex
cusable deception ho it forced to be
guilty of the real distaste, but pro
fessed pleasure, with which be accom
panies "the beloved object" to the fes

One of my earliest recollections o:
such a couple is when they were sitting
in this state of traUouil calm, aud form
inz a very limited band-in hand mutual
assurance company of their own; but
their examplo is not to be quoted, as
the partnership was shortly afterward
dissolved forever, and the lady and gen-
tlemau am at present thousands ,. of
miles apart, and each belonging to an
other firm.

that if she would marry him, and be

happy to meet her at the church and

Tha Rleheat ! all Sold fleldi.
From tha Colorado Miner.
It has only recently beon discovered
what almost inexhaustible wealth the
soil of Eastern Siberia conceals,, and
that in the district of tbe river Amoor,
Russia possesses a cold-field, which ex
plorers of those parts are inclined to
consider tbe richest in tbe world.
Gold-washing and gold-digging are
going on in the tributaries of the Rusao-
Cbinese tronticrstreams and tbeir val
leys, and repay the persons employed in
it so abundantly that laborers earn irom
fifty to one hundred and fifty roubles in
silver per day. and companies of diggers
find, as a rule, from seven to eight, but
in tome cases as much as seventy and
even one hundred pounds ot gold per
day.
The river Sega it still more produc
live, and has yielded to one company one
hundred and seventy pounds in one day,
These two rivers are the richest, but by
no means the only gold producing tribu
taries ot tbe Amoor. Uooiogists have
found that the Tablona mountains, from
which tbe river Sega springs, contain
various kinds of mineral treasures gold
silver, and especially great masses of
iron, wnicn promise iu iiuio vj scuuru iu
Russia an extensive and remunerative
iron manufacture. ' To make these trea
sures available for Western industry, a
company has been started at St. Peters
burg, working partly with English capi
talists, to navigate the Amoor with the
regular steamer service. The enterprise
is not. however, to be confined to this
one subject, for tbo company hope, in
the course of time, to open a profitable
trade with China and Japan, and expect
later on to command tbe trade with the
Western coast of North America. . .

A yonng lady namad Rose Cofmeyer.
who. for some time past.- has been an
employe in the train dispatcher's office
ot tbe flJUwauljee ana Ot. taui railroad,
has recently fallen heir to a comfortable
little fortune, and under circumstances
which renders the incident of mere than
ordinary interest. , - '
Jt seems that Miss Rose, through some
friends, had become acquainted, with a
well-to-do yonng farmer, residing at
Merton, Waukesha county, Monte von
Drjscoll by name, who possessed, in ad
dition ' tq hit landed property, quite a
little fortune qutsiije. IJonle in his
visits to the city saw more or less of
Mist Cofmyer, who being an amiable
youog lady in disposition, and prepos
sesing in appearance, won tbe admira
tion and love of Driscoll. The afiectiop
of the vonnc man for Rose was recipro-
cated, and after making an avowel of
his love he was duly accepted, and tbe
two young people were a iappy and
contented as possible. .. ,
But ' nappiucM tuo swiftly flies. Tbe
preliminaries having been arranged,
Monte returned to bis farm and Rose to
her employment, each impatient for the
wished for day to arrive, but like sensible
people both determined to apply them
selves with renewed vigor to the tempor
alities of thjs world until the time did
come, but hardly had they become sepa
rated when Driscoll was taken sick and
suddenly died; before his future bride
could be summoned. Upon opening his
will it was found that he had not been
unmindful of her, even in his dying
hour, but left kia entire property to her.

AdolphuB Fitzmelon was a " smart
young man. It was bis farm convic
tion that with tbe opposite sex he was
irresistible. Oneevevmir Fitzmelou was
at the opera, and in an adjoining box he
espied a beautiful young lady without a
male attendant. lie nodded to hit com
panions, and remarked that he must
make a conquest. So in the adjoiuing
box be made his way, and uncere
moniously seated himself by the young
lady's side. She looked np in surprise.
Adolphiis sniileUsweetly, and begged
pardon. 1 u must have been mistaken.
II o bad thought he recognized in her an
acquaintance. She informed him he
had been mistaken.: Still, . ventured
Adolnhus. " I hone I rlnn't intrude.."
The fady made no reply, but turned her
attention to the stage, where a scene was
transpiring in which she was much in
terested. At length Adolphut addressed
her again. Turning quickly, she said,
"You annoy me, sir!' and her bright
eyes flashed. : " Blest me! " cried Adol-
ph us, drawing back with mock terror,
' don't eat inc.". The lady smiled a
sweet, beaming smile, as the replied,
Be not alarmed, sir, 1 am a Jewess.
