Air. James uurnlson, living at
Forbes, was bitten by, the rabid dog
which made its appearauco on our

tle daughter of Mr. Burniscn was also
bitten, and has been taken to tbe mad
stouo la Audrew county.
A rabid dog came into town last
Saturday afternoon, aud before ho
ould be killed had bitten some flileen
dogs, around tbe public square. Near-
lall the dogs known to haye been bit
ten have been killed, but our council,
iu order to do all that can be done to
prevent any human from being Infected,
called a special lueetlng on Saturday
nvnning last and passed an ordinance,
instructing the city marshal to kill all
dogs not registered and muzzled by the
22d insl. Our fanner friends bavin?
osrs are reauested to keen them ml
jNome, or also they may be killed.
A row occurred at a dance at thn
'esldenoo of Mr. Slawson a few miles
south of this city on last Wednesday
night, Feb'y Uth. It seems that an old
nally Chambers struck Burgu and the
miter Kiiocaea nun uown. As O'ham
bers arose from tbe ground he drew a
knife and quIoKly stabbed liurge iu the
arm and followed up the attack by stab
bing him three times more In the back
and hip, producing wounds which it is
feared will prove fatal. Chambers was
apprehended by parties present and
was looked up in n room where ho was
kept until some one could go to Blgelow
aud swear out a writ nnd got an officer.
There are a number of rumor lis regard
to thn affair in circulation. One of
them is to the effect that a man by tbe
name of Redmon urged on the row and
that be told Chambers to stab hi in.
Suoh a thing seems inoredlblo that a
man should deliberately make himself
an accessory in suoh an affray and we
really tru-t that It will prove false. A
preliminary examination will bo had im
mediately, and we expect to bo able to
give full particulars next week. Craig

Your correspondent recently spent
an evening with Horace Martin, who
has devoted miieh tlmo to ohfiorving,
refolding and investigating metorolog.
Ical phenomena. Iu the course of our
convolution wo asked him' his opinion
of the prediction cf J. Wiggins, L L,
D., Astronomer, as ho subscribes him
self, of tho grottt Htorni to occur from
the 5lh to the 10th of March, carrying
devastation over tho entire country,
from the Rocky Mountains to the At
lantic, whose yeasty waves would
swallow navigation up. Yes, "ho had
read Wiggins' announcement; his let
ter to President Arthur, tho comments
of Gen. Hazes, Chief Siirnal officer on
It." It appears that Wiggins inscribes
its origin to uxtrarnuudane causes; the
primordial cause, cxcusmvo planetary
force or gravitation, that supported by
tbe teachings of mediueval astrology.
Not having any subject to occupy his
leisure, he bad computed the oxuet per
turbations of tbo earth in its orbit on
tho 5th of March caused by tho attrac
tions of Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Sat
urn aud found no abnormal conditions
'existing at that time, and kindly fur
nished I he Col'mtt l'At'Kit representa
tive the following figures, representing
in seconds of an aro tho perturbations
occasioned by each planet; also show
ing tho greatest and least effect on the
earth's motion caused by tho attraction
of each planet at its least and greatest
distance, together with that of March
tho 5th:
Mux. Min. March Sth.

Mara .... 12.8 iU .... b.'i
luulter... 25.7 3.2 9.4
Saturn..,. 1.7 0.5 0.9
Those are (no perturbations in longi
tude. The perturbations iu radius voc
tor aro very minute, as Venus and Ju
piter are in opposite directions nearly,
and one counteracts tho other. Rela
tive to tho astrological view of tho sub.
eot, he said: "There is a certain po
sition occupied by the plaucl Saturn at
the commencement of tbo astrological
day, that is when tho siderlal lime is
o, h. o m., aud occurring about March
lst,which Ptolemy in bis judicial astrol
ogy refers to as an aspect diro perplex
ing monarobs.' " This aspect cannot
occur only at Intervals ot thirty to thir
ty-three years, and tho disturbances
foreboded aro civic, governmental;
rather than elemental. Witness tho
events following iu occurrence in 1852,
nnu mo same in um, wuicn probably
were accidental coincidences. Yot
