Genti.kmkn : For this distinguished mark of

The great and varied interests of the state aro,

The constitutional limit of the seslon Is a brief
one, It Is thereiore to be hoped that gentlemen
having legislative measures to propose will call
attention to them at as early a day as possible,
so that the committees may beut won, and
there may tie fair and full examination of every
suhjeet of Importance brought before us for pubi
Some changes of the laws saem necessity .

lif t us not be anxious, however, to change or
to do too much. I -M us rather be careful .that
what i done t well done. .
If, without ptcsumptlon, anything may be
hazarded in the ay of counsel concerning our
action here, it may be this: ' That the time of
the set-sloa shonld not be too much taken up
with the discussion or national politics.
Our connection as legislators with those sub
jects Is seither very direct cor very efficient.
Very little attention is usually paid at Wash
ington' to the traditional resolutions Instructing
our senators and requesting our representatives
In regard to their action even when the delega
tion in congress is in political accord with
the legislature here. and still less,
when it la not so, as is now the case.
Discussion is frnltless when the power to
act and to determine is wanting Nor does this
detract from the importance of our position.
The legislature of the state ought not only Uf be
the school, but the ppnere or ine truest aua oesi
statesmanship in the country.
Let ns. then discourage auunproniaDieoeoaie.
Let us work hand in hand with a common pur
pose, to advance. In every possible way, the in
terests of the state aud tho welfare of the gen
erons constituencies which have given us their
confidence. In th'a labor Indiana expects every
gei; tieman to do his whole duty.
1 he time of the session is not ours: it Deioogs
to the people. Time, especially in this season of
financial difficulty, is money. This time of the
people is their mouev. Let us l con
scientiously and rigidly economical In the use
of it. Let every hour stent In this hall Öe

QUEEN VICTORIA'S NKW 1MWK-TIIE FIRST
VOLUME OP "THE LIFE OF THE TRI NCR CON

gives a glimpse ot the character of tha new
book just written by the queen's direction:
The firit volume of "The Life of the Prince

that in order to encourage fresco painting
the prince determined to hav it

truth a that the artists in ones'. ton upere

much insulted by the oaltrv sums that wer a
offered them by the prince,' that thev sot

WEAKNESS OF HIS CHATtACTBR. 1'
He was undoubtedly a good husband and
father, he was patient and industripus-in
the discbarge oi his troublesome datks, and
he led an amiable and decorous li:e. fTa
was loyal in bis devotion to hi wife, man
aged her household efficiently and econom
lcally, ana generally gave her verv sensible
advice. If he had been a greater or ßtroneer
man be would, perhaps, have been less suc
cessful in filling his peculiar position. lie
wan of a cold, priggish, prosy character,
ana aencient in animai spirit, lie knew
nothing, lor instance, of the sportsman's
passion. Ue went out ataz sbootinsr
with tbe same placid equanimity as that
with which he played cards or billiards.
1 he queen was very angry that, on one occa
sion, when ba went out hunting, it should
bave been a matter of general remark and
astonishment that he rode boldly, but this
surprise indicated a characteristic defect
which it was Impossible to ignore. From
the first there were symptoms of weakness
and ememinacy in tho prince's character,
fancy a young man aoout io Da married
to a nice young woman, who happens to be
also a queen, bemoaning his sad fate in the
way the prince does to the eiueen just before
he leaves home: "Think of my position
I am leaving home, with ail its old a?so
ciations, all my bosom fnend3, and going
to a country in wnicn everything is now
and Strangs to me men, language, customs
modes ot life, position. Lxcept yourself
have no one to confide in." It is evident
that be is very much what is called
"mis?y" young man, aud as he grew elder
this side of his character was developed by
the want of male friends. . The idea that the
NARROW AND ILLIBERAL
in political matters was apparently unjust.
He was a strong-minded man, and seems to
havo been apt to get frightened, but his
feelings and opinions were, on the
whole, liberal. A grett outcry was raised
when Humboldt's letter was published in
ISoO, attributing to bim the phrase that the
Poles were as little deserving of sympathy
as the Irish, by which he no eloubt meant
only that they were both highly impracti
cable. In one of his private letters, written
at the partition of Poland, we find him say
ing: "Tnere i a great deal of stupidity in
the world. Sooner would I hsve been
burned alive thau havo made such a declara
tion." It is clear at least that he had no
sympathy with the dept.' Perhaps tbe
most, interesting p.irtsof the book are those
extracts 'from the queen's journal whicb
throw light upon the freshness and sim
plicity other owp. character. She was evi
dently delighted with Louis Philippe and
his fa l ily, an 1 write with girlish frank
ness, with no'fclitit of superlatives, of the
"good, kind kiusr," the ''dear, excellent
queen." "J.ringelicLo'i's?," "dear.au'mir
able JariiiJy. all so kind mid delightful.''
When Loui;o Philippe ca-ne to Windsor
she wa equally chann, and lie certainlj'
seem" to have made hiuin if very agreeah'.e.
Ho, alo did the Emperor Nicholas, in hia
own way. Of the latter the queen says:
''lie i certainly a very striking man, f till
very handsome; his profile is beautilul,
and bi3 manners, v
MOST PKJNIFIKO AND OR ACE KOL,
extremely civil, quite altrmingly ko, as
he is full of attentions and politesse.
But tbo expression of bis eyes is &3vere and
unlike anything I ever saw before. He
gives Albert and myself the impression of a
man who is not happy. and on whom the
burden of his immense p ver and position
weighs heavily and painfully. He seldom
smiits, and when ho does thtf expression
i not a happy one." L'dy Littleton also
spoKe "ol th9 awful look given by oc
casional glimpses of white above the eyeball-',
which came from his father, Paul,
I suppose." In ISij the queen and
Prince Albert visited the Duke of Welling
ton at Strathtioldsaye. "The duke,"
writes Mr. Anson, tho prince's secretary,
"takes ths quean in to dinner and Bits by
her majesty, and alter dinner gets up and
sajs With your magesty'a permission, I
give the health of her nidfjsty, and then
the same to the prince. They then adjourn
to the library, and the duke sits on the sofa
by the queen for the rest of the evening until
II o'clock, the prince and tbo gentlemen
being scattered about the library or tbe bil
liard room, which opens into it." Mr.
Anson also writes that the duke, tinder
provocation from certain too curious impcr
tinents, had put up a large notice in the
grounds directing tho people who wish
to Bee the bouse to drive up to the hall
door and ring the bell, but thev wero to
abstain from walking on the liag-stones
and looking in at the windows. To an ap
plication from a newspaper for particulars of
the royal visit, the duke replied; "F. M.,
the duke of Wellington, presents his com
pliments to Mr. , and beg to say he
does not see whatthehcus6atStrathlield
saye has to do with the public press." The
duke ard the queen eeuu always to bave
been on very affectionate terms, perhaps
because be took her part in the controversy
about tho prince's position.
THE TRANSIT OF VENUS.
THE CB.EHVATIOX8 MADE AT THE SANDWICH
ISLANDS THE APPEARANCE OF THE PHE
NOMENA. The New York Herald, of the 31st ult.,
gives the following concerning the oberva
tions made at Honolulu on the transit of
Venus: The agtfny is over J Venus has made
her transit of tue sun, and seems none the
worse "for her temerity. She was a
little tardy. Sex may account for.
this; that is. if we a-v-t tin "Brit
ish Nautical Almanac" as authority.
Tbe time of internal contact wa two min
utes fifty-four second later than the alma
nac maker hath it. We had cloudy, dull
days lor two months before the 8th, and
many of us had misgivings as to the likeli-
hood of tbe success of our observers; but
when the day dawned all doubts' were dis
pelled, for we had a da made for the
occasion. Telescopes, opera glasses, bits of
window glass in fact anything that was
transparent had been prepared over ptnoky
lamps; and long betöre the hour for the phe
nomenon thousands of nerton, voting anrl
old, were on the lookout for sometning to
happen. When tho first contact was de
tected a feeling of disppointment came
over the masses, for tbey had expected
something more pronounced. To them it
was a tame affair.
WORK OP THE BRITISH OBSERVERS.
To the observers stationed here b7 the.
British government the sensation was quite
different; for them it was a full reward for
years of patient study and preparation. A
ocal writer gives the following trranhh?
account of the ecene within tho enclosure
erectHi by the British observers: What a
moment, and what a sense of responsibility
for three thoughtful, studious men, who
have to deal with a great crisis In the frac
tion of a second, while the audience of an
enlightened expectant world is sympathet

and the chief observes the first external
contact of disk and disk at 3b. 7m. ls.t
and Lieutenant Noble at Sh. 7m. 3s., ac
cording to local and solar time. The agree
ment, is singular but must be regarded
as purely accidental. nut this Is
not the crisis of greatest mo
ment; it is when the perfect rounded orb of
tbe planet is within the an, and the edgo
of its disk at t'ie moment of leav
ing the inner circle ol the lumi
nary indicates the internal contact,
the most interesting point to be observed in
all this transit phenomenon. As tbe body
of the planet was indenting the sun's rim.
and advancing on toward immersion within
its body, the chief, who was now watching
through a micrometer, saw
.. THE COMPLETE DISK OF VES I' 3
defined about thirty seconds baloro t'aa ac
tual internal contact was determined, and
for a while he imagiqed lie had missed the
critical phase of the phenomenon; but this
revelation of the complete circle of th
planet, before actual internal contact bad
taken place, was owing to the effulgence of
the corona or outer flame waves of the sun,
which illuminated the whole surface of
Venus some time before complete immer
sion a phase of the phenomenon never ob
served before, and its detection on this oc
casion is due to the optical perfection of
the tel?8copic instruments employed.
Lieutenant Noble could distinguish the
complete disk ot Venus fully five minutes
before internal contact. And Mr. Johnson,
observing at Waimea on the Island of
Kauai, saw this complete disk no le.ss than
twelve minutes before the complete entrance
ot the planet. This luminous presentation
of ihe lull round body of Venus, when tili
only partially across the sun's circle.was cal
culated to dazzle and deceive our Astrono
mers; but like faithful watchers, they ne
glected not ne moment's observation, and
as they scrutinized the advancing planet
they discerned approximately the phase of
internal contact, which the chief recorded at
3b. 33m. 55.7s., and Lieut. Noble at 3h. S5m.
