Mrs. S. S. Pauuv Tin: SKI. [W c warn our readers that they will get giddy before they reach the cud of this article. It is by Mon*. Flamnm riou, whose recent work on the inhabi ted world* other than Earth is one of the moat successful books of the Paris* •mi season. We base rarely read any thing so interesting.] To form an accurate idea of the sky, we must, in the first place, form an ac curate idea of the earth, and conceive the ball on which we live a* suspended in space without any support, except a* a soap bubble which flout* in the air. Of a truth the .arth is even uk,re isola t'd tnan a soap bubble floating in the uir. for the soap bubble really rests on the strata of air. while the earth rests upon no fluid, no strata, and is indepen dent of every sort of support. I may he asked—But then if tho earth is thrown like a cannon ball into space, why dosen t it full? I answer: Fall —where ? They may reply : Full

down space. My rcsjtoase is : But what do you call “down space I” Down in a relative idea. Form a clear idea of the terrestia) globe suspended in com plete isolation in infinite space, and you will at once see there is uo such thing as up or down in, the universal frame. Examine the question. Hero in the globe in space. It measure* three thousand leagues in diameter. You are some five or six feet high. Your sta ture compared to tho sixe of tho earth is consequently less than the space of an nut Walking around a hall of the site of. St. aul’s church, London Suppose you walk around this globe in every direction, as an ant might do on an immense cannon ball. This globe is a load Mono and it is its at traction which fastens you invincibly to its surface. Now whatever may be the point of this globe wherever a our feet real, you will always call tlo\rn below your feet, and up the space above your head. You may successively place yourself at every point of the globe without exception, all of them will ne cessarily bo down to you, and the cor responding point of space overhead will always be up to you. At the North Pole the Smith Pule will be your down; at the Smith Pole you may consider the North Pole thwn. It is consequently nothing but a matter of position so far a you arc concerned—it is not absolute reality. Two observers placed at the extremi ties of the same diameter will have up reciprocajly opposed ; two others, placed at the extremities of a second diameter intersecting the first diameter at right angles, would call up two points perpen dicular to the former ; and so on, wore the whole globe covered with observers, each one would call the portion of space overhead mj>, so that the whole .-pace which environ* the globe would be up tor the population of the earth. Such is the sky. This word no lon* Eit expresses anything but the up re live to our position, that is, tho indef inite space which environs the eaitli.— If the observer himself does not change hts position, the vertical point, never theless, changes every Instant tor each of us, for the globe turns on its axis once in twenty-four hours. Consequent ly there is uo such tiling a* absolute up or down in the universe, and therefore there is neither right nor left, nor any obsolute positiofl’. Tho earth is a sphere isolated in space, and the space extends infinite/# iu every direction and all around it.— Infinite*# / Let us try to ascertain tho exact signification of this word. Sup pose you determine to measure this in finity, and so set out from the earth as your point of departure, and move in any direction- Very well; what ever direction you may tnke, you may go in I a straight liuo and never rest one sec ond—you may fly as swift as light it- self, which moves at the rale of seventy thousand leagues a second, or you may go still more swiftly, if you ran conceive such velocity, and—mark what 1 say— you tnay keep np this rate of apeed for years, for centuries, for centuries of cen turies of centuries—you will never, nev er, never attain the limits of this im mense, this infinite track of space ! A* you speed on (hr abysses will close over you, other abysses will open in front of you. and this constantly, for ever and forever, without end, without pause, whatever may be the ages upon ag*s you spend in your flight. Infinity will still yawn its measureless depths before you. though you were to exhaust all time, though you were to idtoitify yourself with eternity In reality your long and inimo:isiirnblo flight would he precisely the same thing ns if you had never stirred from your present position of absolute repose; for yon would not bo one s ngle step nearer infinity. Consequently, were we for an instant to consider this earth ns the only globe in this infinite space which environs it on all sides, and were wr to suppose that it could fall, like a ball in an abyss, the earth would full, fsll, fall for centu ries of ages, and would constantly con tinue to lull forever without once reach ing the bottom, though it were to tali through all eternity. After falling for a thousand centuries it would continue to fall for a thousand centuries without ' being one inch nearer the bottom of the [ infinite abyss. It would absolutely be tho sumo thing as if it remained in re pose. Around this earth lies a light down like that we see on beardless hoys, or on a lender poach before a rnde hand has seized it. This is the azure atmos phere which surrounds the earth Clouds are cradled in il at an insignifi cant altitude. The concave term we observe in this apparent dome is noth- ! mg hut tho result of perspective. We. ( por microscopic creatures, live at the I bottom of this down, and sky-Muo is I nothing but this atmosphere itself. I When we rise towards the upper- j edge of our atmosphere by ascending ; mountains or sailing in a balloon, this ' blue color disappears, and we soe thst space is colorless. A visit of a few sec onds to the moon s surface would con vince us still more thoroughly that the blue color of the terrest ial sky belong* exclusively to this atmosphere. The 1 moon is deprived ol air, and during its 1 interminable days—which arc fifteen I time* longer than ours—instead of this ( beautiful axurc dome which is over our I heads, it has nothing but an immense, i black, lugubrious space in which shines | the sun, a moon with varying phases, j IHe earth and a multitude of start.— | The solar system is suspended in equil- ; ibrium in space. What sustains it?—l Nobody know*. Is it in repose? No. 1 it gravitates, or wlmt is the .same thing. I it tails, it falls into the infinite abyss. I It fall* at a velocity reckoned at two leagues a second, or seven thousand leagues on hour. Whether it falls iu a curved, sinuous or straight line, it can fall through all eternity, a* we have demonstrated, without danger of touch ing i oiloin. WoudcrN ol llio 'Telegraph. Ihe annihilation of time and space by the telegraph, now that it reaches ! nearly half around the globe, is so as- , tooisliing that men have to reflect to i lake in it* full meaning. The New j York JrtfJrpf Hi/rnt gives the following i us an illustration ; “On Momhy July j 30, Mr. Field received a message of congratulation from Mr. Ferdinand do j Lcsseps. the projector of Suez ('anal.— It wan dated t Alexandria, iu Kcypt. the same day, at half past one P M., and received in Newfoundland at half past ten A. M. Let us look it the globe, and see over wlmt a space that message flew. It came from the land of the Pharosh and the Ptolemi a—it passed along tho shores of Africa, aod under the Mcdiferanean Ocean, mo*c ihim a thousand miles, to Malta—it then leaped to the continent of Europe and shot across Italy, over the Alps and though France, under the English Channel, to Ijondon—it then flashed across England and Ireland, till from the cliffs of Valentin it struck straight into the Atlantic, darling down the submarine mountain which lies off the const, and over all tho bill* and valleys which lie beneath the watery plain, resting not till it touched the shore of the “Now World." In (hat morning's flight it had passed over one fourth of the earth’s surface, and oo far out stripped the sun io his course that *i nut hed it* destination three hours he- Jure it tea* sent I To understand this il mast be remembered that the earth i evolves from welt to east, and when it is sunrise hero, it is between 8 and 9 o'clock io Alexandria, io Egypt, aod when it is sunset hero, it is nearly nine o’clock io the evening there." There is a story current of Senator Me Do tig ail, of California, that having highly ovor-estimaled hi* capacity for refreshment, he found himself in the gutter, end wm neeosled by a police wen, who* shaking him roughly, de sired him to get up. -Do you know who law ?" thundered tho Senator.— “No" said buttons. “I’m ngreat mao," said Mc-Dougall, “Can’t you see I'm Sneered? 1 A leveller perceiving two crews flying side by side, said : “Ay, that it jnet bow it shonld be; I hate to see one crow over another.” “Bobby, why don’t yon go home end 1 have your mother sew np that hole In your trowsers ?" ‘Oh ! go along old woman, our folks nr© at the sewing cir cle, working fhr the heathen." A I**l (rr froth Victor Hugo on < the Mfurklc In Crete. M. Victor Hugo h* written a letter, ( of which the following i* a translation, . in reference to the roTolutimiarj coo tost in Candia : ‘*A i*ry re che* me from 1 Athena, In (he of Phidiaa and < J&tchylua on appeal i made to me—my ( name in pronounced. What in I to deserve nurh honor? Nothing but a vanquished man And who are they 1 who call to me ? The vanqa|fbed. Yea, heroic Candiotca, the fallen of to-day, ' you ore the victora of the future.— Persevere Kvcn If you are prostrated, you will triumph. The protestation of a dying agony is a power. It is an appeal to God, who crashes —what? Those mighty ones who arc now against you. (hose coalition* of blind force and stubborn prejudice, those armed antique tyrannies, have aa their principal attribute a remarkable facility of making shipwreck. The tiara is on the poop, the turban on the prow, the old monarchleal ship is leak ing It is at this very hour foundering in Mexico, in Austria, in Spain, in Hanover, in Saxony, at Home, and elsewhere. ’ Persevere I You vanquish ed? Impossible. The insurrection sup pressed is not a principle destroyed.— There are no more fall* accompli*; there Is only Right. Fact is never cum | plcted. Its perpetual incomp etenesa | is the opening which is loft to Right. I Right cannot be submerged. The ; waves of events pass over it. It reap- I pears. Drowned Poland floats on the j surface. For 94 years European policy . has torn this corpse, and ike world has 1 seen its soul floating above the fait at | > ompfi. Greeks of Candia, you have i right on your side, and you have also Ire son. Why a Pasha shodld exist in j Crete is beyond mm prehension. That ; which is true of Italy is true also ■ regards Greece. Venice cmr.ot be rea j lored to the one without Crete being I restored to the other. That which is j there a resurrection cannot be here n t sepulchre. Rut in the meantime blood is flowing, and Europe permits it. Bhe gets accustomed to it. To day it ia the Sultan's turn to exterminate a nation ality. Is there a Turkish divine right vene rated as the Christian divine right ? Murder, robbery, violation, are at this moment sweeping over Candia as, aix | months ago, they dashed over Germany, i That which Would not be allow-d to | Scliinderhunncs is allowed to policy.— I To have the sword in hand and quietly j to witness these murders, this is called I statesmanship. It would seem that re ligion is interested in what the Turks are quietly doing—the cutting of Can . dun throats—and that society would be | shaken if. between Scarpcrto and Cj therea, little children were not put to the sword. There the ravaging of crops and the burning of villages is useful The motive which explains aud tolerates these exterminations is beyond oar penetration, i Alas some of the humiliations of men j whom a long exile had made stupid (1 am one of them) is that they cannot comprehend the great reasons of the present ansassins.
