Tin; most important event in the his tory of the railway postal service of the United States him just transpired. Tbe negotiations for the fast express mail train between New York and the Missis- sippi have been completed and approved by the Postmaster (ieueral. The train . starts from New York October 1 at 4 i o'clock a. m., and will reach Chicago iu 1 twenty-six hours. It will be composed I of four curs, which are being rapidly ! constructed. The first car will be fifty t'i-i t in loiioti, it ,, ,n ..... f.,,1, i ooo pigoon-holes for tlie distribution of' the letter mail, and boxes sullicient for the tlistribution of 100 separutious of news paper mail. In tins cur will be a sub comportment for registered valuable mat tor, and an office for tho chief clerk in charge of the train. The entire letter dis tribution for tho line will be in this car. The second cur Mill be sixty feet long. It will be managed for the distribution of through newspaper moil and for storage. It is estimated that between New York and Chicago twenty tons of mail will lie sorted and distributed in this cor. The third car will be fifty feet long, and will le devoted to undistributed moils. The fourth car will be forty-eight feet long, and will be used when necessary for heavy mails. The train will be white, and will be called " The New York Control and Lake Shore Ilailrood Postoffice." The train will arrive in Uuffalo in eleven hours, at , Cleveland in fifteen, at Toledo in eigh teen, and at Chicago in twenty-six. It will leave and take mail at every station. It will stop only for wood and water at I tlie junctions of railroads. It will neither cany passengers nor express, nor will it , do any business but carry tin- mails. It ' will carry letters, newspapers, packages, ; and newsdealers' packs. It will connect ' with ev.-ry postofnee line between New j York and BnflUo. At Albany it will pick ! up all the mail from New England. The i time-table will be so arranged that the ! fast mail will connect with the latest N w i England trains. It will leave the mail of . the morning ot most every town and hamlet in New York before sundown. At i Buffalo it will overtake the train leaving New York on the Erie road the previous . . . veiling, imd will i Aim from it f,,r tl...

At Cleveland it will connect with trains which will deliver the mails to the country fed from Columbus, Cincin nati and Indianapolis, early hi the morning.

The remaining three kopt well in line for a considerable period, boflRatting bravely the rough water, until Kate Barclay shot ahead and won by at laawl twenty lengths. Miss Mason reached ' the boat second, and Miss West brought up the rear. As the distance to the Pont had not been m. jisured, the time was not ; reckoned At the second race, the prizes for i which wen two rings, Annie Barclay re- fused to swim, Minnie Shine again balked, nnd Katie Barclay was again the winner, Adeline Mason being second. t the el se of this contest Miss Bennett made her appearance in the water, and displayed a variety of aquatic gyinna-tics. , QUI SlsM K vroRLMi IMin"t Tli.it Ma BC ibn l"i !'

Not often do the starry heavena ihov us four strongly-shining, bright planeta in one night, but tlii lm b i for -tunc i I the position of Jupiter, Mars, Batnrn and Venus. First comes iut-o view that giiint planet -that vasl orb, whose diamoier is eleven timea and Ids volume 1,300 times that of our own globe Jupiter, the plain t of the mighty cloud-envelopes, whose continued over shadowing ol the planet bimaelf has lad astronomers to doubt if leleaooyifl I ision haK ever yet reallv pen tratcd thaM . in t lnous layers of vapor t the lUfafll i of tho planet ibsi-lf Jupiter is seen soon atter dark almost directly in UM 90 nith his position t H o'clock being n little west and south of it; and his slow and majestic sweep ai ud the sun, which requires twelve of our years, I -..lcclv better comports with his vast dimensions than does his apparent jour ney every night through tin- skies of earth.

ProoiOK believes Jupib-r to le still a mass of seething internal volcanic fire, giving out heat like a ran, and having but a very slight crust cooled as yet, and that subject to continual tiery out bursts and Overflow! while the vast I od-belta a thousand wOmfapt I citner paniy oi volcanic origin, or .u discharging upon the planet itseli such Hoods of su'phnr charged rain as wo cannot imagine. Mars next comes in sight. He rises red away in the south ern part of the eastern horizon soon af ter dusk, and by I o'clock ie a conspicu ous object, well up in the southern heav ens, and mvsily disti ngttiahahle by his ruddy hue. It is B good time to scan Mars through a good telescope, for it will iw two years before he e; again in so favorable a position as he hits been in for the last month, ami will be for o littlo time longer. That bright star of the ruddy hue that conies up olmost in the southeost soon oftor dork, is the neigh bor world which of oil the plum t..rv 6Va letfl has presented the most interesting field for astronomical study, and best re warded such studies. It i pretty definite ly decided that this ruddy hue is dlM to tome quality or characteristic of his seil. Mars, a smaller planet than earth, presente a number of features that seem to war rant the conclusion that his more general laws and features are something akin to these of our world. He bal IB atmos phere; he lias his season of winter ami summer the region of suow and ice around the southern pole, annually and visibly decreasing and inori ting iu what moy DO summer and winter.

The Strike in Kmrlaml. It is evident from the rllepetohei of the List few days from England that matters in some of the maiiufactuing districts there are growing alarming. The op. ra lives in the cotton mills at AMitoii, St d. ybridge, Dnnkenfield and Moasley have itniOl for higher wages, and the masters have responded witn a lock ..ut. One hundred mills have been closed and 18,000 hands thrown out of employment at Oldham, and at Ashtoti fifty mills are closed ami 8,000 hands thrown out of employment. The almost universal de pression of trade is the cause that produce-, this unfortunate state of things, and there is no prospect of a spis-dy ter mination of the depression. Twi lity or thirty thousand persons suddenly de pri( (1 of their only means of livelihood form a very dangerous element in the manufacturing districts, and it would ; not be surprising if scenes f violence were to be enacted that would call for s tags meat one on the part of the gov ernment. It is very clear that the labor I (juestion in England is growing nmre complex and threaten in:' - v. i v year, and it seems unavoidable that it must, sooner or Liter, tiud a crisis in a fmious and destructive outbreak.
