Bis Mtjfstjf —Onoe the customs and trappiugs of kingly governments, or despotLiina, as we then characterised them, were peculiarly ofiensive to republioan notions and tastes. It some monarch had traveled through our country with a retin-ae of retainers, and a body guard of cavalry, tho American peopl*» would have been so supremely difl^ustvd and offended, that his majesty would have been ip danger of mobs. It is even ouen- tionablo whether, without an army at hia back, Buch sovereign could have made tbe tour of the U. States IQ safety. But what do we sec nowf Go at six o’clock P- M., on any day io tbe week, Suntiay.s not excepted, to the north of tho Prc»t- dentiaI,mansio^,*nd there you will see a troop ot cavalry 4r^f^,np in front of the northern door, e^dently a^vSting some^hing. Presently a tail, .ungainly ibrm ^pearp, the troop goes tbrougb a salate, a charger siao^ Toad^ aaddled^ Ihe un gainly cavalier mounts the chargor, an officer in full uniform, bespangled with gold, a general is evidently at his side, the two ride off, the troop remains stationary a respectful moment, return : their sabres to their scabbards scientifically, and gallop after tbe general and the tall chieftain. And who do the people suppose thus emerges from the Presidential Mansion ? Some foreign potentate, or ambassador, or general of the army who had called with his staff to pay a passing re spect to the President of the United States? No: none other than Abraham Lincoln! And thin is his body guard! And this every day! “K^ublican, proud America!” exclaimed the great Irish orator Philips, when contemplating pure character and plain honesty of Qeorge Wash ington, and his simple, unostentatious manners in his offickl position as President of the United States. “Ahis! how are the mighty fallenl” The words of Philips, uttered now, import not eulogy but sarcasm.—Const. L'uion. The Hun.—Mr. Alvin Clark has inetitnted a series of experiments to determine the compara tive light of the sun and stars, and finds that the former would be vbible as a star of the sixth magnitude if it were removed to 1,200,000 times its present distance- If the distances, ascribed to several of the stars, as obtained from parallax, be true, our glorious luminary can only be reck oned among the very small stars. The astronomer Verrier, has discovered an er> ror in the sun’s parallax, as stated by Eccke, and hitherto followed by astronomers. Instead of .57 seconds, it is really 8.95 seconds. As the parallax, together with the earth’s semi-diameter, is the basis on which the earth’s distance from tha sun is calculated, a chango :.n the parallax must be attended by a change in .he figures ex pressive of the sun’s distance from us. Thus, the sun, instead of being 95,000,000 of miles from us, is, in reality, distant only 91,328,000 miles. The veUcity of Ught^ the distances and sizes of the heavenly bodies, &o., being caloolated by comparison with the earth’s diatance from the sun, must also be changed correspondingly. Thus Hgbt'trarelH 183,470 miles per aeoond, ineteed nearly 192,000, as heretofore supposed. The sun’s diameter must be reduced .38,000 miles. The distance ot the planet Neptune from the sun is less by 122,000,000 of miles. Richmond JSeninel. Head^firn Reserve, 3i. C'., 1 K\li.iqb, Siipt. Ji'tu, lrt04. / Gbbbbai.

Dili 1. a Cinderella'» Slipper.—The Dublin University Magazme gives the following account of the glass slipper: Two centuries ago, furs were so rare, and there fore so highly valued, that the wearing of them was restricted, by severe sumptuary laws, to kings and princes. Sable, in those laws called vair, was the subject of countless regulations. The exact quality permitted to be worn by persons of differ ent grades, and the articles of dress to which it might be applied, were defined most strictly. Perrault’s tale of “Cinderella” originally mark^ the dignity conferred on her by the fairy, by her wearing a nlipper of vair, a privilege then confin ed to the high^t rank of princesses. An error of the press, now become inveterate, changed vair into verre, (glass,) and the slipper of sable was suddenly convert^ into a glass slipper.” A Wonderful Fl'rnt.—One of the most singular productions has been discovered in the Damftra country in Africa. The plant grows to be a cen tury old, and its trunk attains a circumference oi 14 feet, yet never produces more than two leaves, and these, singularly enough, are the first or seed leaves of the plant. Imagine the loaves of a melon to keep on growing and spreading over the* soil until they reach th^e length of six feet each, and some idoa can be formed «f this vegetable wonder. These two leaves, which are split into innumerable things that lie curling upon the surface of the soil, are all the foliage the plant ever produces. The plant inhabits the dry regions, where rain rarely or never fails, and has no need of a large surface or foliage. Flower stems spring from the large trunk, and produce cones about the size of those of the spruce fir. This strange plant is allied to the pine family. Monkei/s.—A recent English work on Natural History contains the following: The small pox having spre^ fearfully amongst the monkejB of South America, Dr. Pinckard, Secretary to the Bloomsbury Street Vaccination Society, was struck by the idea of arresting its further proCTCSs. Vaccination was, of course, the means of staying the plague, and his scheme for the introduction was singularly ingenious. He bound two or three boys hand and foot, and then vaocinated them in the presence of an old monkey, #ho was observed to be closely attentive to the proceedings, lie then left a young mon key, with some matter on the table, and beside a lancet, gaarded, that it might not cut too deep, by a projecting piece of steel. The Doctor witnessed the result from a neighboring room; the old mon key thrust the young one down, bound him with out delay, and vaccinated him with all the skill of a professor. Who’ll Try it.—To prevent steers from jump ing fences, clip off the eye lashes of the under lids with a pair ot scissors, and the ability or disposi tion to j ump is effectually destroyed, as Sampson’s power was by the loss of his looks* The animal will not attempt a fcnce until the eye-lashes are grown again.
