Tb following conclanioim tt tbe eientist at tbe natal nbaervatory . relative to the Meutlfjr, orbit aud robuble fate of tbe comet visible will be read with iureret: Tbus all facta point to tbe con cIukioii tbat 1 ben tbe present ele ments are corrected they will be found to correspond morn nenrlr with those ot tbe 1880 comet. Ail competent aaironoinera wboexiim ine the question, in tbe light of the fccta presented, will U88nt to the sonnuuessot this conclusion. Tbe most troublesome point in the caxe ia tbe uimculty or uioMing the period of the 1880 come suddenly been reduced froiA 37 years to less tbau three. M tbe MIlVE otner baud, it may bo said Unit it 1$ not absolutely news. try to make ttiia supposition, for if the 1843 comet returned anywhere between tho middle of March nnd the middle of May in nny year tbe chances or Ira being seen from the earth would be almost nothing, becuuae it would lava spprouched the nun from the side opposite the earth, aud, after pHRsinjr tery closely around, It would bate gone Imck again nu the aid opH)sJte the earth. Thus the comet may have returned once or 1 twice, ot even ot'tener, in the inter val between 1843 and 1880 without bavlug been seeu troin the earth Consequently, there nmy have been a gradua! dimiuutton of periodic time. If, however, there baa been a auddeu reduction ot tbe periodic time from 37 to a little more than two years and a half, it follows, al most certainly, that the next reduc tion may be proorlioiiatety great. We may even have tbe comet uiiixh. ing into tbe sun next year. What tbe results of that crash may be is ' a problem yet to be solved. It must now lie conceded that a comet has a aatiri nucleus. The nucleus of tbe Wells comet was distinctly seen in ad observation at the Dudley Ob servatory on June 11 aud was esti mated to be not less than 400 miles iif diameter. Tbe nucleus of the present comet Is probably much greater, and when we remember that this comet will rush turn ik iuh with a velocity of 400 miles per second, no one ran venture an ade quate or accurate estimate of the Instable consequences. Whenever that event ahull happen it will be important for astronomers to have some warning. Fortunately the el ements oj this comet indicate that - it will be much longer iu view than . were eitberot the comets in 1843 or . 1880, so tlint there will be some chance, to determine the torin of the orbit, and compuie the time which mart elapse before it comes back again. Again, tins comet will bare be advantage of having exciteu most intense interest, ana it win inereioro ue ou served with n irequency and oare such as have fallen to the lot ot no comet in tho history of astron ottiy. According to tbe present el amenta tbe comet whs 16,000,000 mile train tue aim on September mil, ana Txouu.uuv on tbe 21st. )n tho former it was 103,000,000 fiiiiea irom tue earth, and on t he lat ter 107,000,000 miles. It is tbus go ing away both from tho sun and the earthx Tliew is not the least doubt ot this. It will probably bent least A week Ix'tpre the computers will arrive at nny result which can be relied upon us more tbau approximations to the truth. . ' ' Coat of fitveme Officers. Boa.
