COItXIS Now that one of these magnificent visiters hat to lately been seen in our western evening tky, our interest i naturally excited to know something more in relation to them. Comets are flaming' meterr1, of a prculi.tr appearance, h.iving a brighter or dentr head, or nucleui, and ruber a surrounding hazy brightness, or a long, bright, hairy train, or Uil. What is their composition is unknown, and various are the cmjectures concerning it. It is certain that tlu-y contain but very little matter, for they exert but little influence upon bodies near which they puss. The nucleus of some appears opaijne, like a planet. Thut of others; is transparent ; and o:ln rs, i'gain, have r.o nu cleus, but are transparent throughout their whole extent. Tlie envelop, or train, or tail, is more or less thin and transparent, and the stars md other heavenly bodies are seen through it. When a cornet i seen nt a distence from the sun, through a good telescope, it resembles a slense vapor, surrounding the nucleus, and flowing far out into the regions of sp.ee. As it approaches the wit, its light gradually be comet more brilli. '. 'i'.l it comes neurest to the nun, when it pLres with a light interior only to tat sun iS' .;. j When .. comet, rs is usu:J'v the eae, has a him, they move with the most fearful velocity. One of thesw bodies, in this tituation, moved with a velocity 1500 times greater than a ball bursting from the mouth of a cannon. Another moved over an aro of one hundred and twenty degrees in a day. The orbits of tome comets are known to lie wholly within the solar system. Those of others extend to immeasurable depths beyond and this whole system itself is only one end of their mighty circuit Although we cannot learn of any harm that has ever barn t'one by any of these portentous bodies, yet they have always been looked upon with more or less alarm, and as cither foretell ing, or bearing witness to, the most dreadful events. Thus, a comet, which was visible to the naked eye in the daytime, made its appear otire just af.er the death of Caesar, and was be lieved by the Romans to be his soul, appearing in that form to take fiery vengeance on his mur derers. There are many other most curious and inte resting things which might be told respecting comers. They are among the greatest wonders i of :hat most wonderful and interesting study, Astronomy. Every one, by careful and en ergc'ic improvement of his time, can study into all these wonders of the natural universe, and feast his soul continually upon ever new riches. Colli! it Ratio have received a portion of their goods, and we are wire the ' lie will be pleased with their assortment. They have new styles of ribbons, very handsome all wool de laines, as well as those more common and cheap er; new styles of cloaks, with materials to make them; handsome neck-ties, neck handkerchiefs, ghves, hosiery, Sic, Call and tee for your selves.
