NEW YORK HERALD. York, October'43, 1N40, Major General Butler. We set- that a statement is circulating through the press to the effect that when General Butler ordered the charge, at the siege of Monterey, in which the gallant Colonel tWatson lost his life, General Taylor rode up in the inidst of a tremendous fire, and immediately countermanded it, expressing, at the same time much dissatisfaction with General Butler for directing it; and further, that since that occurrence, Generals Taylor and Butler have not been on friendly terms, and that v-.- T h_. .V.? nf tV,? l?t. lUC lUIJjlCi IIU-J IIII|^?^UVU vw?.%ihvw. ter. We are sorry that the statement in question is making its appearance in the journals, and are exceedingly glad to state, from unquestionable authority, that there is not the slightest foundation for these statements. So far from these two officers being on unfriendly terms, the reverse is the case, and General Taylor, in his official despatches, publicly and officially mentioned, in laudatory terms, the services of General Butler in that siege. Not only were General Taylor and General Butler on good terms with each other during the siege, but continued so up to the last dates,when the former visited General B. every day personally, to ascertain how he was getting on with the wound he received. There can be no doubt that the story has been got up by some narrow-minded whig parti/.an for the purpose of injuring Gen. Butler, who is, we learn, a democrat, in the estimation of his fellow citizens. We have yet to learn, however, that the political principles entertained by a gallant soldier, are sufficient to justify petty attempts to under' rate his character or services, both of wliieh belong to his country. The Locofoco Defeat in Pennsylvania.? The triumphant success of the whig party in the recent elections in Pennsylvania, is a bitter pill to the democrats in this city. They found it very hard to swallow, at lirst, but have at last bolted it with a little sugar, though not without many grimaces. At first the announcement appalled them, but they gradually recovered their senses, and now have their wits at work to find out the cause of their defeat. They have tried many that did not bear the slightest shades ol probability, but have at lust showed up one in which there is certainly some reason, and that is, Gov. Shunk was unpopular with the body of the par ty, and was taken up as second best. For the purpose of breaking him down, they suppose that many of their party voted against him, and many did not vote at all, and allowed the election to go by default. Whether their defeat can be attributed to this cause or not, we do not pretend to say, but that their forces did not possess that superior and perfect organization which characterises the party in its struggles, is apparent from the fact that Willmot, a locofoco, in favor of the tariff of 1846, was elected to Congress over one of the same party who was in favor of the tariff of 1842, and also from the fact that the locofoco vote has fallen off tremendously, while the strength of the whigs appears not to have increased. They further state, that when the Presidential ' election comes round, Pennsylvania will be found ' "right side up.'' That, however, remains to be seen. If the above mentioned cause be one of those j which brought about the success of the whigs, it is certaiuly an anomaly in the history of locotoaoism. No matter how muchsoever may be the prejudice entertained against the candidates, that party generally go to the polls with extraordinary unanimity. They never carry their diflerences with them to the ballot box, but when they vote? to vise their own words?"they go the ticket, the whole ticket, and nothing but the ticket." Hence their extraordinary success. KfA.MKRicAN Ocean Steamers?The Progress or Ship Building in New York.?Although it is acknowledged throughout the world that our New York sailing packets are unsurpassed for beauty of model, strength of construction, and superior sailing qualities, yet there has been, for the last few years, both here and in Europe, an erroneous impression that we could not build ocean steamers as well as in Europe. We apprised the public, some months since, that there was in course of construction one of a new line of American steamers, to be called the " Washington." The line is to consist of four steamers, is to ply between New York, Cowes, and Bremen, and be completed in March, 1848. The frame of the pioneer of the line, the " Washington," is pretty well under way, and we would recommend all those interested in such matters to visit her now, as, not being planked, , they can see how strongly sha is being constructed. Messrs. Westervelt and McKay, who have built several of our beautiful packets, among others the splendid ship American Eagle, that was launched the other day. have the contract for building the Washington. Messrs. Stillman and Allen, of the Novelty Works, who now rank amongst the most scientific machinists in the world, are at present engaged in making her machinery?two engines ot one thousand horse power each ; just double those of the Great Western. She is to have three llush decks, will be 1750 tons burthen, 145 feet in length, 39 feet beam, and 31 feet, 6 inches hold. The Washington will leave New York, on her first trip, the 1st of next March, under the command of Captain Hewitt, long and favorably known as the Captain of the Havre packet ship Utica, and as able a seaman as ever walked a deck. II we can predict any thing about her from the appearance of her model, what we anticipate her machinery will be, and the character of her Captain, we will venture to say that she will make the'quickest passage ever yet recorded; and as our New York ship builders have eclipsed the world in the superiority of our sailing packets, so (now that we have made a commencement at steam ship building,) will we in a few years possess the greatest merchant maritimes in the world. Fnw in PRoerxcr.?We perceive that 'hat portion of the democracy of this State, commonly known and designated by the name and title of " Old Hunkers,'' are about to hold a meeting ?t Clarke's house, near Albany, on Wednesday next, for obvious political purposes. It will be in the memory of our readers thaj this same house was the scene of a most amusing row, occurring about a year ago, in which John Van Buren, and other prominent members of the Old Hunker party, figured extensively. We expect that the meeting next Wednesday will be fully as amusing, as a regular rowbetween the Old Hunkers and the Barnburners may be counted upon, if nat as certain, at least as extremely probable. What will be the result of a meeting of these opposing factions of the invincible democracy, we hardly dare to speculate upon. We trust that Jjir awful catastrophe of the Kilkenny cats will not be the shocking consequence of this dread encounter of the indomitable huge paws. What a tunny election we are to hove on the Sd of next month. Diplomatic AnRivA!.s._The Kt. Honorable Richard rakenliam, H. B Majesty's Envoy at Washington, and La Chevaher Don Angel Calderon De La Barca, Minister Plenipotentiary from the Court of Spain to the UnitedIStates, arrived in the city yesterday, and occupy apartments at the Ci y Hotel. Thr Emigrant Qi/ution ?In reference to ti e I letter of tlie Govermneut Agent for Emigration, j Mr. James &. Forrest, referred to yesterday, we are assured that the complaints ot injustice to passengers alluded to, arose from a temporary and unexpected derangement of the agency of die New York House at Liverpool, which was remedied forthwith, and that the passengers who had engaged have been and are being sent forward, 1 as originally agreed, without troubling any society or other establishment interested in the passenger business. Theatricals. Pas* Thcatsf..?Those who accuse Mr. Anderson of j s want of artistle finish, must certainly have been con- , verted from that opinien, if they were so fortunate aa to Ul. u 1-. l.-i ; ?. . . I " "uwo ?ua uonuci, itt?v evcuiDg i nai pan, even rauro than any other Shakespearian part, require* the posses?iou of artiitic grace, versatility, a most acuta fubtlety of intellect, as well as a depth of soul, to give expression to the many thrilling bursts of passion, which the drama matist puts in the mouth of the half crazed Prince,?in fine, to give the character truthful embodiment, is required in a greater degree than in the case of any other conception of Hhakspeare, the master hand of the artist as well as the soul and inspiration of genius. In neither was Mr. Anderson deficient, last evening. All the difficulty of giving to the audiexce the counterfeit presentment of a prince, driven to the verge of madness by the awful secret with which he is possessed, and at the same time keening up the well simulated show of real lunacy to the king and his court, he got over in the most masterly manner. There was a clearer light thrown on the character, even in minute particulars, than we have ever seen in any other but one impersonation of it. His conception of the part was perfect, and it was faultlessly carried out. The soliliquy was most beautifully spoken; the advice to the players was singularly clear and impressive, and the climax, wheie the conscience stricken king rushes from the chamber, was one of the grandest etfects imaginable. Kvery point in the play was illustrated in the most forcible and felicitous manner, and the death scene was so solemn and imposing that the applause which followed the fall of the curtain, was an actual relief to the pent up.feelings of the audience. Mr. Anderson was called out at the close, and heartily and loudly applauded. Mrs Hunt's Ophelia was the best tragic part we have yet seen her in, although it is needless to say that her forte is net tragedy. Still her Ophelia was very creditable, particularly the last scene in which she appears; her acting in which really deserved the ap platise it received. Mr. Dyott's Ghost wo do not like so well as Barry's, although Mr. Dyott cannot do anything he attempts badly. Still we would rather have seen him in Laertes. Mr. Chnnfrau s acting, for a first appearance, was quite respectable; hut his Laertes was too tame and unimpassioned. He has a great many faults to unlearn before lis can play such parts well Mr. Stark's King was quiet and judicious. The actor is deservedly growing in lavorwith the audience. Mrs Abbott's queen is one of | the best we have seen on the stave. There is nothinv overdone about it. The chamber scene with Hamlet was | highly e it active without being melo dramatic. She made a capital point in the sigh with which she proclaimed her relief from the awful terror and suspense she had endured during Hamlet's colloquy with the ghost, before uttering the word " nothing"?in reply to her son's query, whether she had seen aught. Bass, as I'olonius, was excellent, hisher's grave-digger is too well known to need commendation. To-morrow evening, Mr. Anderson appears in his celebrated part of (harles lie Moor, in Schiller's romantic play of the " Kobbers." This is said to be one of his best parts The subordinate parts are sustained by Barry, Kisher, Dyott, Stark, Chaufrau, Mrs. Hunt, fcc. he. Bowery Theatre.?The tragedy ofDamonand Pythias was repeated at this house, laBt evening, to one of the largest houses of the season. Mr. Aodam's acting, as well as Mr. Neafie's, was loudly applauded, and gave a great deul of pleasure. Mr. Nealie deserves much praise for nerlorming his part so well, when it is considered that he had but little time to prepare for it?the part of Pythius having been appropriated to Mr. Clarke, who was indisposed and could not appear. Sir. Adam's Damon proved that he ->ossesses the elements of an actor of the first order. The gorgeous spectacle of Montezuma concluded the amusements for the evening. (Jrkenwich Theatre.?A strong bill is presented at this lavorite resort, to-morrow evening, and we hope that a full attendance will reward the liheinl mutiuiremanl e - ? ??? ? , Mr. Kroer. Untiring in his search for variety and novelty, his theatre has attained a reputation amongst the theatre going public, enviable as it is deserved Br reference to the bills for to-morrow evening, it will be seen what powerful attractions are oflared. Bowcar Circus.?This favorite plnce of recreation was crowded to overflowing last evening, and the gymnastics. horsemanship, tumbling, be., were heartily|encored by the spectators. As at present conducted, the Bowery Circus is decidedly worthy of patronage. In no other place of amusement in this city are the entertainments so varied and yet so rich as here, and no place where better order and decorum prevail. Thr Ai.hamsa has taken a firm stand, and is visited by most respectable, as well as numerous, audiences; and the excellent arrangements made to secure order and de. corum, command the admiration of all visiters. Tonight there is to be a splendid selection of sacred music, both vocal and instrumental, and two scriptural illustrations er Tableaux FYcans, bringing before the eye of the spectator living embodiments of passages in Scripture which have called forth the grandest productions of art. The effect of these living pictures is at once surprising, beautiful, and affecting, and as far superior in effect to the most finished paintings, as it is possible to conceive.? The audience of last Sunday evening were completely taken by surprise at the effect produced by the picture of "Jacobin the house of Laban." This tableau is to be exhibited again this evening, together with one descriptive of "Moses in the Land of MMian," which is said to be equally beautiful in design and effect Mr. George Loder presides at the organ. Palsio'i OrxsA Housx?Mr. Alexander still continues much indisposed, and his magical exhibitions have been for the present postponed. We hope, however, that with recovered health, he may be able to fhvor us with some more of his " mysterious soirees" in the course of next week. Mrs. Keen took a benefit at the Boston Theatre on Friit.. -i-.. ~t ,u- iiMi.t. - v. v.....a , Wv wv n |>i?j viwv nno ? oecrei," DClDg presented for the occasion.

Yankee Hill is to give an entertainment at Rochester to-morrow evening. Nusleal Intelligence. Ma Bitama's Cone est.?Owing to the number of political conventions and other meetings upon the night of this excellent artist's Concert, noone from this office was able to attend ; but accounts agree in placing it among the first of the season.' Leopold De Meyer was, as usual, inimitable in his way, and many think that he never was heard to such advantage. Hami-ei. Lover.?This gentleman gave his first enter tainment at Boston on Thursday last. The Transcript says The author of " Rory O'More," " Handy Andy," lie., was received last evening wiih a good, hearty welcome, and though the auditory was not a crowded one, we are satisfied that Mr. Lover will speak to crowds ere he leaves our city. The infinite and irrepressible humor of the man, the delicacy and yet aptness of his narrations, the graceful manner in which he introduces his songsall are " taking," and his hearers are at once provoked into laughter. The Appolloneons gave their third Concert at Boston on Friday. The Transcript justly says of them, " if the lovers of music could be made acquainted with the extraordinary talent of tt ese wonderful children, the house I would be Ailed every night of their performance. It is a rare sight to find children perform as they do " Political Intelligence.

The list, when published, will amount to over 300 octavo printed pages, ranging through our entire agricultural and manufacturing departments. Jn the Daguerreotype branch, Mr. M. T. Brady, of 207 Broadway, obtained a medal for the best specimen of a Daguerreotype likeness. He successfully bore the palm on the two last occasions, and his pictures have won for him golden opinions.? Mesdames Palmer Fara, of 476 Broad way, were awarded a silver medal tor the best worked shirts. Mr. Chancey Langdon, received, or has been nominated for a premium, for his excellent invention, called the "historical gAme." Several other artists and mechanics received either medals or diplomas.

It appears from this, contrary to certain statements <JT the Weekly Dispatch, and other Tractarian journals, that the Bishopric was offered to Mr. Gobat, with the direct previous sanction of the Archbishop of Canteibury. On Friday, the 9th inst. the ceremony of taking the veil took place for the first time in Chicago. At a grand Pontifical High Mass celebrated by the Rt. Rev. Dr. Quarter, two of the devoted ladies that embarked from Pittsburgh to form in Chicago a foundation of the order of Mercy, received at the hands of the Bishop the White Veil.

Dr. Schroeder, has accepted the unanimous call of the wardens and vestry of that church, as rector, commencing on Sunday morning next. In a book entitled "History of Churches in New York," we find some curious lacts. There are two floating churches in, or rather out of the city, and one church murituallv afloat that is. a church of no narticular de nomination. Four churches have gone over from one denomination to another?clergymen, congregation, church and all. Some church edifice* have been put to very base uses, |and among them we find that one nas been a prison and a riding school, and is now a post office ; another is an eating saloon ; another was leased lor a museum ; another a seed store ; another was used as a barracks for soldiery ; and another, which was the scene of contention for years, has become a public stable. A theatre was reformed to a church, but has since degenerated into a perfumery. Among other things we may notice that all the Methodist churches, except two, have I free seats?an example worthy of all imitation. Owing to the increase of catholicity in St. Louis, the | learned and zealous bishoD of the diocese, the Right Rev. ; Dr. Kenrick, has secured tliree or lour large and spacious 1 lots of ground in the city of St Louis and it* vicinity,upon which ne purposes next spring to commence erecting three or four churches We learn that the Catholic Bishop of Chicago laid the comer stone of a new rhurch, at La Salle, La Salle county, 111., on tho l.sth inst.

Ths Mails of the Caledonia.?We noticed, yesterday, near the Custom House, a large number of bundles of Lnglish newspapers, forwarded by the Caledonia, and directed to Southern papers, reading rooms, kc. Some of the New York papers, wo perceive, are finding fault at the non-receipt of their files, and attributing it to neglect in the Boston post office. It appears, however, that these papers were not put into the mail bags, but the bag or package in which they were enclosed was forwarded as freight, and as freight, taken to the Custom House, where they were inspected, and a part of them sent to the post office the same day. Another portion of them was afterwards discovered, and probably forwarded yesterday afternoon. If the Kuropean agent of the New Vork papers thinks proper te forward uieir bundles with the freight, they must of course pass through the Custom House.?Baton Journal, 33d intl. Ai.?awt, Oct. 33d, ISffi. I Hi R'qvttition for Report?Captain | Murria?Tht Canalt. Rumors have been circulated very freely for several weeks past, that requisitions have been or were to be made upon the northern States, for several regiments of troops to co operate with the army now in Mexico- | Upon enquiry, this morning, 1 learn that no requisition has been made upon the Governor of this State fortroopa, and that none will be made before the next meeting of Congress. 1 am also told, upon what would appear to be reliable authority, that, notwithstanding all the assertions to the contrary, no requisition has been made upon the i Governor of Pennsylvania for troops. The above information is given on good authority. A meeting was he^i in this city on the evening of the . 31st inst., to devise measures for the removal of the remains of the lamented CapL L. N. Morris, from Monterey to this city. This gallant officer fell while fighting be- 1 fore Monterey. His body will be forwarded to New Orleans in a government vessel, and from thence te this i city, by the overland route. The meeting above alluded I to, appointed a committee of gentlemen who have already taken the proper steps for the removal of the body, which will be buried with distinguished honors. The tiAirornnp i\\m (InmntrnlUr arui th#? Attnrnaw I lonavol n/ 1 this State, are absent on a visit of inspection of the Northern State Prison, at Clinton county. They are, by ; law, inspectors of this institution. They are expected to return to-morrow, or on Monday. Kxlraordinary elferts have recently been made by the Wright-Van Buren wins of the democratic party of this State to effect a reconciliation with the conservative division by a liberal compromise of their difficulties. The radicals are apparently too late ; for notwitstanding that they have met in convention and re-nominated the conservative candidates for county offices, there is still a disposition among the conservatives to eschew all connexion with them. A call of a conservative meeting, signed , by about 600 men, appeared in the Jlrgut of this morn- ] ing. The place designated for this meeting was the scene of the celebrated riot last spring The object of this . meeting is "to consider and act upon certain political wrongs with which the radicals are charged. We do ' not apprehend any difficulty at this meeting, unless the , radicals attempt to interfere with its organization or pro- 1 ccedings. We shall endeavor to be present. It is sup- j posed that an effort will be made by the radicals to influence the action of the meeting. The noble steamer Isaac Newton broke her starboard wheel last evening. The paddles caught up an immense log. which was floating in the river, and the wheel was broken at the first revolution. The iqiury did not materially affect her speed. This is indeed a noble ' boat. She left the wharf foot of Courtlandt street, \ with the Kmpire a length ahead ; the Newton ! passed her competitor with esse before sailing 1 three miles. She is managed with great skill and judg. j ment, and her officers would honor the quarter deck of a frigate. The canal will evidently soon close, and forwarders aro despatching merchandize with great celerity. The weather is excessively cold, and ice made in many places last night. Svaacusx, Oct. 29, 1840. Whig Convention?Politico in Omeral?Tall Timet. Yesterday the whig young men of New York, held a mass meeting in this place?all but the "mass." It was not well attended. The day has gone by for mass meetings, I think. The delegates in attendance, flushed with the news from Pennsylvania and Ohio, are full of confidence in the success ol the whig party in this State. They are deter- j mined to "go it while they are Young." Several adJre .ses were made by gentlemen from the I uuiereiu iockiju?i, chcu vwiy cuuiiueui wm iur. i uuiig ; would get large majority in the 8tate. Mr. Huiband, from Rochester, who has been an active temperance lecturer?an abolition lecturer?a moral reform lecturer, and hai now joined the whig party, made a speech of some length, which was highly applauded. Politics, in the county of Onondaga, as in most other localities, look rather squally. The entire "rank and file" of neither party will vote the clean ticket, and it is very probable some candidates will be elected from each. In the recent Convention of the democrats of thiscoun ty, tho "hunkers" succeeded in nominating most of their friends. The result was unexpected by the "barnburners." From what 1 can learn in this portion of the State^tbe vote of this fall will be a very spo ted and curious affair ?anotherfact, showing the constantly diminishing confidence ef the people in political leadership ana demagogueism. Kverything indicates revolution?or, at least, a great breaking up or parties,as now organized. Think you that result will be a calamity 7 I think not We are entering upon "tall times" in the political world. I have just visited Utica?stopping at that new and excellent Hotel?the McOregor House?by your amiable fellow countryman. 1 found several leading politicians of both parties, whig and democrat, warmly discussing the probable result in that county. The conceded idea seemed to be, that neither party could form anything like a correct opinion of the result Besides the divisions among whigs and democrats, growing out ofhunkerism, barn-burnerism, and anti-rentism, there are many who will vote "irregular" tickets, in consequence of their various views on the temperance question. The pro-liceacers will oppose the temperance men, and the anti-licencers will oppose the licence men?then the abolitionists come in for a share of the votes. Borne are for the Constitution as amended, and others against it So we go. R&mblcb. Police Intelligence. Uct. 24 ?

Committee for trial by Justice Roome. 0Jittempt to Ret eve m Stare?Quite an excitement took place yesterday in Centre street, near Reade, also around i the Tombs, in consequence of an attempt being made by about 300 negroes, to rescue a slave called Oeorge Kirk, | from the custody of Mr. Fallon, the keeper of the City Prison. It appears this negro slave is a runaway from Savannah, Oeorgia, ho having secreted himself on board ' the brig Mobile, and upon the vessel arriving at this port, | a few days ago, he was discovered on hoard, arrested by | the Captain, and placed in the City Prison, in order to be i sent back again to his master. The abolitionists having ! taken hold of the case, a writ of haheat corput was ob- j tained from Judge Edmonds, directing the keeper of the city prison to bring the slave before him for the purpose j of investigation. This was done yesterday morning, and ! the Court being occupied with another case, the Judge remanded the prisoner back to prison until Monday next, 1 for the hearing, and on returning again with the slave to the tombs, Mr. Fallon and one of the deputsie, Mr. Bo- j gart, were violently attacked by about 300 negroes, in Centre street, opposite Reade atreet, who endeavored to j rescue the prisoner from their custody. However, after a severe fight, Mr. Fallon succeeded in maintaining possession of the slave, and by the aid of several officers and citizens, two of the negro ringleaders in this attempt, were captured and carried to the police office, where they gave their names as William Burrows and William White Subsequently, two more black fellows were arrested, after a sharp chase up Leonard street and along Broadway, and were "pinned" in White street, whose names are James Webb and James Boyce. The parties were all committed to prison for trial by Justice Drinker, in default of $1,000 each, for their appearance at Court. Stealing a Hortt and Wagon? Officer Davison, of the 13th ward, arrested yesterday, a black fellow called Jas. Townsend, on a charge of stealing a horse and wagon from the Washington market, the property of Mrs. Elizabeth C.

The New Haven Palladium contains the annexed communication from Prof Olmsted, of Yale College, giving the result of his observations during the rise and progress of the severe gale of Tuesday last. The statistics are matters of interest to all, and particularly so to meteorologist*: ? As esrly as the morning of the 12th, after a long drought, signs began to appear indicating an approaching storm, and these were successively multiplied, until the afternoon of the 13th, when a violent gale commenced and lasted for several hours. The signs referred to were such as the following: 1. Diminished draught of chimney*. 3. Increased distinctness of distant sound*. 3. Kail of the barometer, at firtt gradual, but afterward* accelerated, having for many previous day* been stationary at about 30. 30 inches. 4. Rise of the thermometer. 6. Wind vibrating between 8.

Jl, 1841) r> Dear Sir?I am indebted for the following account of the verittcatjou. by the telescope. of the grand diacovery by Leverrier.'of a planet, outride of Uranus, to my friend Mr. B. A. Gould, Jr . who ii now pursuing his scientific studies at Berlin. He informs mo that he often saw Levenier at Paris, and that he does not appear to be more than thirty years old. Yours, kc., BENJAMIN PEIHCE. ? Numerous suspicions have been already excited, m consequence of the non agreement of the predicted and observed motions of Uranus, that this ditference might result from the influence of some exterior planet. The distinguished astronomer, Leverrier, of Paris, has, during the present rear, carefully Drosecuted the investigation. ana, from the magnitude and character of the perturbations not accounted for by theory .definitively obtained the position of a hitherto unknown disturbing planet. He has given the elements of this planet, and the place where it should be looked for. By letter of the 33d September, Leverrier requested Dr. Galle to search for the planet, and on the same evening Dr. Galle succeeded, by means of a careful comparison with the excellent chart constructed by Dr. Bremiker, superintendent of the Berlin Jahrbuch, (Hora xxi. of the Berlin Academy maps.) in finding a star of the 8th magnitude very near the place assigned by Leverrier. which was not upon the map. On account of its very slow motion, it was necessary to wait until the next day. On the 24th September the iter had retrograded one minute of arc from ita former poiition, thi? motion corresponding perfectly with that aisigned by the elements of Leverrier. The star is of the 8th magnitude, and even a disc seems to be perceptible ; but the discovery was only rendered possible by the precision of the map employed. The observed plaices are Berlin, m. 1.1. JIR. Dee. Sept 23d, 12th. Om. l*s. 318* 19m. 16s. 13* 34m. Bs.S. 34th 8 64 41 338 18 14 13 34 39 S. For some time to come it may be observed upon the meridian. The characterof the discovery, resulting from purely theoretical investigations, insures to Leverriar the most brilliant rank among all the discoverers of planets. MHI This planet is probably about twice the distance of Uranus from the Sun. KNCKE. Berlin, Sept. 36, 1846. Since receiving t'rofesser Peirco's letter, we are informed that the planet was probably seen on Wednesday evening at the Cambridge observatory. It is certain, at least, that a star of the 8tlt magnitude was seen, which is not in the excellent map referred to by F.ncke, and is in the very place in which the planet should be found. Another night will be needed to test this observation Its right ascension at 9 o'clock was 31h. 61m. and 33s., and ita declination was 13 degrees 33m. 8. A telegraphic despatch in the U. S. Oazette, from Sears C. Walker, states that Leverrier's planet was seen on Friday night at the Washington Observatory. At a previous observation on Wednesday evening, it is certain that a star of the eighth magnitude was seen, which is not in the excellent map referred to by Kncke, and which is in the very place in which the planet should be found. Its right ascension at 9 o'clock was 21b. 61m. and 33s , and its declination was 13 deg. 33s. [Frem the Boston Courier, Oct. 24 ] The new planet, predicted by M. Leverrier in so remarkable a manner from the perturbations of Herschel, and discovered by Dr. dalle, at Berlin, on the 33d of September, was seen from the Cambridge Observatory on the evenings of the 21st and 23d inst. It was found, wiuiuui inucn unncuiiy, witn the nve-teet equatorial, near the star a. f, No. 7648 of the British Association Catalogue. The planet bore illumination almoat aa well aa the star, which is rated of the 7th magnitude. The place of the planet, on October 21st, was? Alt 2Ih., ai>im.; Dec. I3a 33 South. W. C. B.
