The Brigntest Stan and Planets Vil-r
bleOccnItatins of tbe Bloon i -
Every one who has watched the heav'.
T ens during January has noticed a grad
ual smiting or the stars' - towara the
west. Constellations which at the
commencement of darkness in the be
ginning of the month were at an elevar
tion of one-third of the distance from
the western horizon to the point over
head are no longer seen, while others
which at the same period were invisible
have come into view in the East This
movement of the heavens in a western
direction is caused by the revolution of
the earth around the sun toward the
eastern point of the horizon. The sun,
though situated at a distance of rather
more than ninety-one millions of miles,
is yet comparatively so near that the
advance of the earth in its orbit causes
the central luminary to appear in dif
ferent parts of the heavens, while the
stars are at such immense distances
that even a change of position equal to
double the interval between the earth
and the sun makes no perceptible varia
tion in their apparent place. Day and
night are due to portions of the earth
being turned by its diurnal revolution
towards or from the sun, and the in
creasing or decreasing length of the
day 'causes the stars to be seen in a
different position when night renders
Of the planets visible without the aid
of a telescope Mercury will be too near
to the sun to be observed. Venus will
continue to be the evening star, setting
each night at a later period and increas
ing in brightness. Mars will rise about
an hour before the sun on the ninth and
will be visible a little earlier every
morning the remainder of the month.
This planet will be in opposition to the
sun the second week in November. At
such times it is nearest to the earth and
shines with the greatest brilliancy.
Jupiter will cease to be the evening star
after the seventh of the month and on the
fifteenth will rise a few, minutes, before
the sun and continue to be mowing star
until the close of August. Saturn is
approaching its conjunction with i;he
sun. It will set at the beginning of the
month a little after nine o'clock , and
may be noticed as a palish star in the
southwest. Uranus, which may be ob
served by a practiced eye shining with
a faint blue light, will rise about sunset
the middle of the month. It will be
near to the waning moon on the 26th
and will be visible the whole night. As
this planet makes but one revolution
around the sun while the earth makes
eighty-four, it appears during seven
years to rise and set in the same con
stellation. Two occultations of stars by the
moon will take place in February
one of a star of the fiffh magnitude in
Scorpio on the evening of the 10th, and
another , of a small star in , Taurus
about an hour and a half after sunset
on the 28th. The moon will be too near
full for the first occultation to be
viewed with advantage; the disappear
ance of the last may be observed at the
dark edge of the planet.
The nightly sky during February
will be adorned by many of the most
beautiful constellations. Stars which
have been carefully observed from the
days of the shepherd astronomers of
Chaldea to the present time will be
visible during the whole or the greater
part of every night Although a ma
jority of the most conspicuous stars are
colorless, there are some which present
a different aspect. Capella emits an
orange, Aldebaran a red, Arcturas a
yellow, and Vega a blue light. Sirius,
which now appears white, except in
certain conditions of the atmosphere,
when it has a slightly bluish tinge, was
regarded by the ancients as a red star,
and is so called by Ptolemy and Seneca.
Death of a Centleman Known in
Mr. "VV. E. Harvey, of Hartford, Conn.,
the gentleman who as actuary of the
Charter Oak Life Insurance company,
aid a somewhat extended visit to Char
otte last autumn, and after leaving
wrote several pleasant letters ' about
Charlotte and the South for a Hartford
newspaper, died week before last in the
city mentioned, after a brief illness.
Mr. Harvey, during his sojourn here
made a pleasant impression upon bur
people, many of whom will be sorry
to hear of his death.
Could Not Out-Run the Train.
When the train on the Charlotte, Co
lumbia & Augusta Railroad, which
leaves here at 11.30, was near Johnston's,
on the down trip from Charlotte, day
before yesterday evening, the engineer
saw two mules drawing a wagon, with
two men seated in it approaching the
crossing. There was a considerable
clear space between the train and the
crossing, so that the men in the wagon
must have seen: if they could not have
heard the locomotive, but nevertheless
they endeavored to cross the track be
fore the train could reach it, and failed,
as men generally do fail under these
circumstances. One of the occupants
of the wagon was a white man and the
other a negro. The white man, seeing
in time what was about to happen,
jumped from the wagon and saved
himself. The pilot of the engine struck
the vehicle about midway. The negro
was killed, and the wagon shattered in
to a thousand fragments. The mules
escaped unin j ured. A coroner's inquest
was to have been held yesterday, and
Conductor Sprinkle and the enginee
were detained on the up trip; , yesterday
as witnesses. 1,. . ;

Drutal Outrage in Richmond Countf,
Information reaches this city that in
Richmond county, not far from Laurin
burg, Monday, a mulatto man, whose
name has not been learned, waylaid an
unmarried white , woman, a sMiss Be
thune, and catching her in the woods or
on the public road, overpowered and
lashed her to a tree, where, having her
secure and closing her mouth he com
mitted upon her person a horrible out
rage. The scoundrel then fled, and up
to last accounts had not been captured,
though officers are upon his track. It
is supposed that the ravisher left his
victim tied to the tree; at any , rate, be
fore the discovery of the outrage was
made the negro had gotten out of the
Miss Bethune is represented as a
young woman of good character and
respectable parentage, and the hideous
event naturally excited much indigna
tion in the community. In addition to
the other steps which are being taken
against the ravisher, a reward has been
offered for his arrest.
Was one of the two months (January
being the other) introduced jnto the
Roman calendar by Numa Pompilius,
when he extended the year to twelve of
these periods. Its name arose from the
practice of religious expiration and
purification which took place among
the Romans at the beginning of this
month (Februare, to expiate, to purify).
It has been on the whole an ill-used
month, jerhaps in consequence of its
noted want of what is pleasant and
agreeable to the human senses. Numa
let fall upon it the doom which was un
avoidable for some one of the months,
having, three out of four times, a day
less than even those which were to con
sist of thirty days. That is to say, he
arranged that it should have only
twenty-nine days, excepting in leap
years; whenby the intercalation of a
day between the 23d and 24th, it was to
have.thirty.' No great occasion1 here
for complaint. . But when Augustus
chose to add a thirty-first day to August,
that the month named from him might
not lack in the dignity enjoyed by six
othej months Of the year, he took it
from February, which could least spare
it, thus reducing it to twenty-eight in
all ordinary years. In the parliamen
tary arrangement for the. information
of the calendar, it being necessary to
drop a day out of each century except
ing those of which the ordinal number
could be divided by four, it again fell
to the lot of February to be the suf
ferer. Railroad Notes.
The report in circulation Monday,
about a narrow escape from a collision
on the Air-Line Saturday, was greatly
exaggerated. The operator at King's
Mountain reported to No. 2 that No. 1
had passed there behind time, , when
such was not the case. The consequence
was that when No. 2 arrived at the
meeting point instead of having to wait,
as was expected, No. 1- was standing
there and both trains passed on time.
There was nothing approaching a colli
sion. The Supreme Court of the United
States has.decided the tax case against
the Air-Line railroad,, and it is held
liable for taxation upon that part of tits
property lying'iri South Carolina.
