Tbe annnal time ior the appaaranoe of meteors
is agiua approaohing, and during the next mOnth
more or less exhibitions of those teirarkable
bodies may be expootcd. It i» somewhat remark
able that the fact of this regular period of
mctcorio phenomena was not nuticcd until a
modem date. There can no longer bo any doubt
that, for some reason or other, in tbe month of
August, cspccially the early portion of it, there
ie if regular rceurring exhibition of metoors in
the ekjk; and during tho past few years airtrono-
mers and others interested in celestial wonders
bave watobed, examined, and noted tho appearan
ces, 90 that the mass of evid«'nec eolleoted has
bcooaiu hi^iy iasp«ftant sr,l ob?1«I 4w ieating
iHic value OT the ^ffcreat theories wlbich have
been suggested for the explanation of tho myste
ry—for a mystery they are, although so much
study have wjen given to them.
Two theories rc^iain proibinont, and but two,
whioh aro at pro£cnt held by the learned men.
The first, whioh attributes to the meteor a lunar
origin, is abandoned by most of its former adher
ents. This theory is in substance this—-that vol
canoes in the moon throw c ut stones with such
force _as to send them beyond the sphere of at
traction of the moon, and into the sphere of at
traction of the earth, no that instead of falling
back to the surface of the orb from whioh they
came, they descend to the earth, are ignited by
the rapid passage which they make through our
atmosphere, and vanish in the combustion, or
reach the ground ocensionally in fragments This
idea is not so violent and improbable as it may
seem. The force of the attraction of gravitation
depends on the weight and distance of the attract
ing body. The simplest explanation may be made
by imagining a body placed between the earth and
the moon at exactly equal distances from each.
It will fall to the earth, because the attraction in
that direction is much greater. So as the body
is advanced farther and farther towards the moon
it continues within the superior attraction of the
earth until quite near to the surface of the moon.
The force estimated as necessary to hurl a body
from the moon into the superior influence of tho
earth’s attractioa is only a few times greater than
that of a Parrott gun.
The other theory, which is now more generally
received, and which possesses some striking fea
tures, is that the meteors form a zone around th«
sun, perhaps several zones, like fragments of de
cayed planets, lying all along tho track of the
ancient orbits; that the world in its annual circuit
around the sun passes every August, and at va
rious other tin^, through the track and through
tho debris which is scattered along it, the frag
ments igniting as they ent»: our atmosphere.
This theory is based on the regularity of the
appearance, the general uniformity of direction,
and other facts whieh have been acted by'obtMic-
TCT8 It is a startKag and mMntftoont idea; nor
is it violent. The asteroids whieh have been dis
covered have already given rise to a similar idea
in relation to another planet. That the planets
dccay, break up, disappear in the course of ages,
who can dispute?
The immutability of tho heavens is but a poetic
idea. All things change. Dccay is the order of
nature. The human frame, one of tbe most ex
quisite works of the Creator, is doomed to fall in
to dust. Trees and flowers grow, and fade and
perish. The mountains ortunblc—the valleys fill
up. There is nothing of physical matter known
to man which docs not go through tho process of
disintegration, and what we call decay. Why
should suns and stars be exempt from the uni
versal law? Whatever bo thn true theory, the
l>eauty of meteors as a part ot tbe great celMtial
system is not to be doubted; and in a lew day^it
will bo possible for any ono lying on hb ba^ in
a elcar eight under the sky, to count scores of
larger and smaller '^shooting stars,” whieh will
eroHs the sky and vanish.—Jour, a/ Commerce

Singular Coincidenee—Wednesday morning
we noticcd that an incident oceurred down the bay
un Sunday night, and that Mr J. J Love had
been killed %nd Mr. I*trrce severely wounded.
The body of the supposed Love was brought up
by the steamer Natchez and his friends notified
of the fact, who immediately took charge of the
remains, and preparations were madn for the
burial. That afternoon (Tuesday) a tclo^';raphic
dispatch was sent to Mrs. Love, who resides a
short distance up the Mobile and Ohio railroad,
to come to the city. She did so, but by that
time the supposed remain.^ ol her husband wcro
well placed away in a packed coffin, and the body
being in such a state of decomposition that her
friends told her it was a matter of impossibility
for him to be recognizcd by her; and for fear of some
bad results, as she wa.s cxceedint;ly shaken by
grief, they refused to open the colBn to give her
the usual last lock.
On Wednesday afternoon the corpse was esoorked
to its last resting-placc by Mrs. Love and a large
concourse of intimate friends and acquaintances.
IjO and behold the sefmel. On Wedncbday night,
the live body cf Mr Love was brought up on the
steamer l)iek Kcyee and restored to his “widow
ed’' wife and sorrowful friends; the mistake
having occurred in sending the body Orom Navy
Cove to the fort. It appears that four men were
in the boat that the accident occurred on, and
that some confusion occurrcd in rcspeet to them,
and that the person who .sent up the body to the
fort told the one in charge of it that it was that
of Joseph Love. He delivered it from person to
party until it was forwarded, when it has since
been proven that the dead man wap Dennis Mur«
phy, also a very worthy citizen. The person of
the deceased was about the same height and size
as Love, and the haste and confusion in sending
up the body caused tho mistake, whieh has ter
minated in anything elso than a joke.
It is also stated that, on the morning of Wed
nesday, the newspapers containing the announce-
meui of his death and funeral notice was road to
Mr. Love at Fort Morgan. He immediately tel
egraphed to a lady friend, (he not knowing that
his wife was in the city), that he was safe and all
right. The dispatch was received just before
the funeral serviecs were performed, and, owing
to the excitement at the time, she, thinking it
some trival matter, laid the dispatch iu her work-
basket and continued her preparation for the fu
neral, and did not read it until Love made his
appearance at her house at 12 o’clock at night,
when the feelings of his wife and all present can
be better imagined than described.—Mobile Trib.
