[Wc warn our readers that they will get giddy before they reach the end of this article. U is by Mous. Flamiua rioti, whose recent work on the inhabi ted worlds other than Kurth is one of the most successful book* of the Paris* tan season. We have r.irtly read any thin*; 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 bull on which wo live a* suspended in space without any support, except a* u suap bubble which flouts in the air. Of a truth the .arth is even mere isola ted tnan a soap bubble flouting in the air. for the snap bubble really rests on the strata of air. whilp the earth rests upon no fluid, no strata, and is indepen dent of every sort of support. I may he asked —But then if the earth Is thrown like a cannon bull into space, why doaen’t it full? I answer: Fall —where? They mny reply: Fall down space. My response is: But whal do you call “down space I” Down lis s relative idea. Form a clear idea of | the torrential globe suspended in com plete isolation in infinite space, and you will at once see there is no such thing as up or down iq,tho universal frame. Kxatuiue the question. Hero i* the globe in apace. It measures throe thousand leagues in diameter. You are

some five or six feet high. Your sta ture compared to the sixe of the earth is consequently less than tho space of on ant Walking around n ball of the sixe 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 stone and it is its at traction which fastens you invincibly to ita surface. Now whatever may be tho point of this globe wherever .our feel rest, you will always call tlo'trn below Jour feet, and up fbu space above your ead. 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 spree overhead will always be up to you. At the North Pole the South Pole will be your </otr*; ■ at the South Polo you may consider the . North Pole down. It is consequently 1 nothing but a matter of position ho far as you arc concerned—it i not absolute reality. Two observers placed at the extromi -1 tics of the sumo diameter will have up reciprocally opposed ; two others, placed at the extremities of a second diameter intersecting the first diameter at right angles, would call up two points perpen ' duular to the former ; and so on, were the whole globe covered with observers, 1 each ooc would call the portion of spaco overhead up, so that the whole space which environs the globe would bo vp lor the population of the earth. Such is tho sky. This word oo lon- C‘f expresses anything but the up re live to our position, that is, tho indef inite space which environs the eaith.— if the observer himself does not change ’ bit position, the vertical point, never theless, changes every Instant tor each of us, for the globe turns on ita axis once in twenty-four hours. Consequent , ly there is no such tiring as absolute up or down in the ur.ivorse, and therefore there is neither right nor left, nor any absolute poeitiofl. The earth is a sphere isolated in space, and the space extends Infinitely in every direction and all around it Jufinitrfy ! us try to ascertain jbe exact signification of this word. Sup* • pose you determine to measure this in finity, and so sot out from the earth as your point of departure, nod move in • sny direction- V cry well; what ever direction you may take, you may go in ~ a straight Hue and never rest one sec ond—you mny fly as swift as light it- self, which moves at the rate of seventy thousand leagues ■ second, or you may go still more swiftly, if you ran conceive such Telocity, and—mark what 1 say— yon may keep np this rate of speed fur years, for centuries, for centuries of een tnriea of centuries—you will never, nev er, never attain the limits of this im mense, this infinite track of space I As you speed on the 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 bo the ages upon ages you upend in your flight. Infinity will atill yawn its measureless depths before you. though you were to exhaust all lime, though you wore to identify yourself with eternity. In reality your long and immeasurable flight would Ik* precisely the same thing as if you had never stirred from your present position of absolute repose; for yon would not be one s ngleHep nearer infinity. Consequently, were we for an instant to consider this earth ns the only globe in this infinite space which environs it on nit aide??*, and were we to suppose that it could fall, like a b ill in an abyss, the earth would full, full, tail for centu ries of ages, and would constantly con tinue to tali forever without once reach ing the bottom, tbongh it were to tall through all eternity. After falling for a thousand centuries it would continue to fail for a thousand centuries without being one inch nearer the bottom of the infinite abyss. U would absolutely be the same thing as if it remained in re pose. Around this earth lies a light down like that wc see on beardless hoys, or on a tender peach before u rude hand has seized it. This is the azure atmos phere which surrounds the earth ('loads are cradled in it at nn insignifi cant altitude. The concave form we observe in this apparent dome is noth ing but the result of perspective. We. poor microscopic creatures, live at the bottom of thin down, and sky-blno is nothing but. this atmosphere itself. 1 When wc rise towards the upper- I edge of our atmosphere by ascending j mountains or sailing in a balloon, this ( blue color disappears, and we see that apace 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 terrestiui sky belongs i exclusively to this atmosphere. The' moon is deprived of air. and during its | interminable day#—which are fifteen 1 times longer than ours—instead of this | beautiful azure dome which is over onr ' heads, it has nothing but an immense black, lugubrious spaco in which shines the sun. moon with varying phaacs, the earth and u multitude ot start.— The solar system is suspended in equil ibrium in space. What sustains it Nobody knows. Is it in repose? Nn, it gravitates, or what is the.same thing, it falls, it falls into the infinite abyss. It fulls at n velocity reckoned at two j leagues a second, or seven thousand leagues an hour. Whether it fulls in a i curved, sinuous or straight line, it can fall through all eternity, as we have demonstrated, without danger of touch ing i acton. * Wonder* of the Telegraph. The annihilation of time and apace by the telegraph, now that it reaches nearly halt around the globe, is so as tonishing that men have to reflect to take in its full meaning. The New Vork Imlrpi'Nilrnt gives the following as an illustration: “On Monday July 30, Mr. Field received a message of congratulation from Mr. Ferdinand dc Losseps, the projector ot Suez (’anal.— It waa dated *t Alexandria, in Egypt, the same day, ac half past one P M., and received in Newfoundland at half past ten A. M. Let us look at the globe, and ace over what a space that message flew. It came from the land of the Pharos hs and the Ptolemi a—it passed aloug the shores of Africa, and under the Moditeranean Ocean, mo-e than a thousand miles, to Malta—it then leaped to the continent of Europe and shot across Italy, over the Alps and though France, andcr the English Channel, to liondon—it then flashed across England nod Ireland, till from ; . the cliffs of Valentin it struck alraight into (he Atlantic, darling down the submarine mountain which lies off the const, and over all the hills and valleys , which lie beneath the watery plain, I resting not (ill it touched the shore of the “New World.” In that morning's flight it had passed over tme-junrth of ’ (he earth's surface, and so far out , stripped the sun in his course that ii r racked. iU t/eati nation (firm hour 9 hr | fore ii iros stnt! To understand this ( if must be remembered (hut the earth , tovolvea from west to east, aud when it is sunrise here, it is between $ aud 9 o'clock in Alexandria, in Egypt, and when it is sunset hero, it is nearly aloe o’clock in the evening there.” , Thera is a story current of Senator McDougall. of California, that having , highly ov or-estimated his capacity far refreshment, he found himself in the | guitar, and was accosted by a police , man. who, shaking him roughly, de sired him to get up. “J)e you kaew ! who lam V* thundered the Senator.— ‘•No” said buttons. “I’m a greet mao,” said Me Dougall, “Can’t you see I'm I Sneered r A leveller perceiving two crows flying 1 side by tide, said: “Ay. that is jnat * bow it should be; I hate to seo one crow ■ over another.” “Bobby, why don’t you go borne and r have your mother sew up that hole in i your trowser* V* “Oh ! go along old - woman, onr folks are at the sowing f - cle, working fbr the heathen. ” 4 letter from Victor HitfO on t the MruKKlo In Crete. M. Victor Hugo has written a letter, ( of which the following is a translation, . io reference to the revolutionary con test in Candia : ‘*A cry re chca me from 1 AlheoH. In the city of Phidiaa and I d&chylus an appeal is made to me—my f name is pronounced, What im I to j deserve such honor? Nothing but a vanquished man And who arc they 1 who call to me ? The vanquished. Vcs, heroic Candiotes, the fallen of to day, * you ore the victors of the future.— I Persevere Kvcn If you are prostrated, 1 you will triumph. The protestation of ' a dying flgony is a power. It is an appeal to Ood, who crushes ] —what? Those mighty ones who arc 1 now against you. those coalitions of I blind force and stubborn prejudice, < those armed antique tyrannies, have as i their principal attribute a remarkable < facility of making shipwreck. The i tiara is on (he poop, the turban on the ; prow, the old monarchical ship is leak- < iog. It is at this very hour foundering in Mexico, in Austria, in Spain, in 1 Hanover, in Saxony, at Home, and 1 elsewhere. * Persevere! You vanquish- 1 ed? Impossible. The insurrection sup- pressed is not a principle destroyed.— ' There are no more /aits accompli*; there Is only Right. Fact is never com- ' plcted. Its perpetual incomp etencaa is the opening which is left to Right. Right can not bo submerged The waves of events pass over it. It reap pears. Drowned Poland floats on the surface. For 94 years European policy has (ora this corpse, and the world has 1 seen its soul floating above the /a%ls at • cumplit. Greeks of Candle, you have I right on your side, and you have also 1 ire son. Why a Pasha should exist io I Crete is beyond comprehension. That which is true of Italy is true also as j regards Greece. Venice cair.ot be res-1 I tored to the one without Crete being i , restored to the other. That which is 1 them a resurrection cannot be here a ! | sepulchre. Rut in the meantime blood j 1 •is flowing, and Europe permits it. BUe gets accustomed to it. To day it is the | Sultan’s turn to exterminate a nation- 1 alky. Is there n Turkish divine right vene rated as the Christian divine right'!— Murder, rubbery, violation, are at this moment sweeping over Candia aa, six • months ago. they dashed over Germany. That which would not bo allow d Io Schinderhannes Is allowed to policy.— 1 To have the sword in hand and quietly 1 to witness these murders, this is called statesmanship, it would seem that re ligion is interested in what the Turks are quietly doing—the cutting of Can dian throats—and that society would be shaken if, between Scarpcrto and Cy- 1 therea, little children were not pat to the sword. There the ravaging of crops and the burning of villages is useful The motive which explains and tolerates these exterminations is beyond our ! penetration. I Alas some of (he humiliations of men whom a long exile had made stupid (I am one of them) is that they cannot comprehend the great reasons of the present assassins. Never mind. Tho Cretan question is heneeforth clear. It will be solved, and solved like all the other questions of this age, io the sense of deliverance. Greece complete, Italy complete—A then* at the head of one, Rome at the head of the other—this it what wc—France—owe to our brothers.

Much has been said in relation to the circulation of Democratic paper*, hut we have teen nothing more to the point or more truthful than the remarks ipoa that subject contained in the following article, which we copy from an exchange. Its words are peculiarly applicable hero as well as elsewhere: The constant iteration of the cry “Circulate Democratic papers,** has, wo believe, done some good. We heKevo that a more general conviction now ex ists smong Democrats generally that k is their duty to aid in circulating sound papers, and in discouraging the ctreu iatioo of unsound one*, than at any for mer time. But we are also convinced that in this respect we are still far be hind our opponents. They will rarely ever touch or read a Democratic peper, and while this is carying bigotry too far, yet Democrats often err i* eaactly the opposite extreme. For some trifle they will be induced to subscribe fbr a paper that will poison the minds of their chil dren. and make them inveterate nbcli tionisls. It is no more than justice to sav tha-j every man who now publishes a Democratic paper, does a aelf-aaeriic ing work, and token aa a class, we know of no truer or more patriotic men than the Democratic editors of the Northern .Sutes. As a body they are far in ad vance of the politicians, who, Is many instances, arc a dead weight upon them. We say, therefore, that if there is any class of men who deserve well of Dem ocrats, it is, token as whole, the Demo cratic editor. We urge, therefore, that Democrats generally, should try to un derstand the difficulties under which their editors labor, and when what advantage* the Abolition preaa hare over them, they will feal Ilka tak- I ing hold and aiding them with material aid in their unequal light. | Aa the New k ear approaches, let (to- I tematic effort* bo made to give a wid* l extension to Democratic journata.
