A c nein Nayci dispatch of the 12th svs detailed return or coming in rats own but a of huh is known to say tint the democratic Mai orly in the state will be Likely to overrun -.0,t 00,\vith probably fifteen of the Twenty one congressmen. A spec n Tei Curram from Columbus to the time says the democrats claim tint the. Plurality will not be less than 20,000 and May reach 30,000. Who e the Llepun Leims admit that it will not fall much if any he of the first figures. The resist is a Surprise to the democrats As Well As republicans and on All skies the question being asked is How did it happen the democrats attribute the result to Superior organization on their part Republican dissatisfaction with the National administration and local quarrels of which there were More than the usual number in the Republican ranks. They also argue that the action of Congress at its Lute session had a tendency to disgust republicans and destroy their Confidence in the honesty of the party leaders. Gov.

Donaldson Secretary of the Republican state executive committee gives it As his opinion that the result demonstrates clearly that the majority of the people of the state Are not in sympathy with the Radical moral Reform measures upon which the Republican party has staked and lost everything in the Campaign just ended. While the state issues have played an important part in the canvass it is probable that the death of Garfield and the instalment of a new administration with antagonistic tendencies and the dissatisfaction consequent upon this change has been an important Factor in bringing upon the Republican party in Ohio its defeat. The bickering bet hmm the factions of the party in new York and Pennsylvania have also Tail their in Luence in Ohio and that influence has been detrimental. The Garfield republicans mistrust the National administration and were Uoc particularly interested in giving it the same endorsement they gave Garfield last fall in the election of gov. Foster.

From a careful investigation of the question of health of the Farmers of Massachusetts us made a few years since under the direction of the state Board of health and giving the observations of some fifty eminent physicians practising in different agricultural districts it was found that Farmers Are the longest lived of any class. In the thirty seventh annual registration report of Massachusetts is Given the average age at Deathy for the past thirty five years of citizens of the state who were engaged in each of the following occupations and who were Over 20 years of age a classes and occupations 51.15 cultivators of the Earth 65.57 Active mechanics abroad 53.05 professional men 51.27 merchants financiers agents etc., 49.06 Active mechanics in shops 47.97 labourers no special trades 47.91 employees on the Ocean 47.15 inactive mechanics in shops 44.45 females 39.72 factors Labouring abroad 37.42. Titis table shows that the Farmer lives Over fourteen years longer than the average person and Over twelve years longer than the class next below him in longevity and fourteen years linger than the professional Man. But it does not follow that Farmers wives and children Are longer lived than those of men of other callings for Farmers wives Are too often brought under influences tending to shorten life. The science and Art of sanitation which Are doing so much to prolong human life should especially brighten the Farmer s Home. Early deaths everywhere diminish As the science of sanitation advances. In Geneva Switzerland the statistics show that the average length of life in that City in the sixteenth Century was 21.21 years in the seventeenth 25.67 in the first half of. The eighteenth. 27.75 in Tho inst half 30.25 Wmk today it is about 43 years. This Progress will surely continue As men study the causes of i sense and tie Means of preventing in Roland Farmer. Is the Earth in peril views of eminent scientists Lii Comet. A Washington dispatch says that prof. Skinner of the naval Observatory was interviewed in relation to the opinion of Trot. Pro Torand other eminent european scientists that the present Comet is that of 1845 and 1880, and it will again return in 1sss and fall into the Sun causing terrible disaster to. The Earth. To said thut while or. Proctor had a reputation among astronomers for making rash announcements there was no use in ridiculing his idea. The Comet now visible How sad was certainly a very remarkable one. And in some of its features was an extraordinary phenomenon. As to the possibility of a meeting Between the Comet and the Sun at some time in the near future he said such an event was by no Means improbable. He did not think it would be Safe  at this time to Hazard a definite opinion on prof Proctor s prophecy the Comet will be visible for a Mouth yet Aud we Hope he said to be Able with the Aid of a Telescope to follow it a month and a., half. We have not made a sufficient number of observations yet nor has it been. .-Ible Long enough to determine its subsequent course. To Don t know As yet nor will we be Able for some time to find out whether the track of Tho Comet be that of a parabola or an Elliptic. If it be the latter there is some reason to expect serious consequences. The great Omet now visible travels in a path practically coincident with the comets of 1843 and 1880. Hubbard found the period of revolution of the Comet of 1s4s to he Over 500 years. The period of revolution of the Comet of 1880 was Over thirty years. The period of the great Comet How visible is not yet calculated with certainty owing to the limited time of observation. These three comets at the time of the nearest approach to the Sun must traverse the solar atmosphere thus experiencing a great degree of resistance. The facts As for As known Are that these comets Are observed to travel in the same path. If they fire the same Comet that Comet s path must have been violently changed by some outside Force i they Are not the same Comet then the hypothesis of prof. Sofford that they Are pieces of the 1843 Comet May be held As probable " prof. Skinner concluded by saying that it was Idle to Nikko any positive predictions of the future movement s of this Comet until it has been observed through a longer Are. He said that even if prof. Proctor s prediction should be Home out it would t necessarily follow that the Destruf. Tion of the Earth would result. It was All owing to what the Comet might be made of. He did not believe it to be of very Pond Erable an affair and in the face of its coming in Contact wit i the Sun the Sun May be Able to take care of ii without any difficulty. Prof. Pickering of Harvard University was interviewed by a reporter and said you Mav say thut the scientists of Cambridge Observatory hold no such views. They have no Feives of the Earth s destruction through any such a collision Between the Sun and the prof. Chandler of Harvard has computed that the Comet of 188. Will not return until after a period of thirty or forty Vears nor do the Cambridge professors Lief eve that the present Comet will return in 1884. Prof. Prisbie of the Washington Observatory says the Comet s nucleus is constantly changing in color size and Snape. And that great internal disturbances Are taking place. He estimates the length of the Tail at 50,000,-000 Miles. Tie new York Sun says the nucleus of the great Comet has broken into three parts. The combined length of the Throe fragments which Are arranged in a Row is estimated at about or ,0 u0 Miles while their Width is Only 3,0110 Miles. No change in the appearance of the Comet is perceptible to the naked Eye. The nucleus of the Comet of 1881 also broke in two. In both cases the breaking up occurred after the Comet bad passed the Point of nearest approach to the Buu. The same is True of Biela s Comet which in 184g not Only split up but developed into two separate comets each possessed of a head and Tail of its own. This seems to indicate that a Comet encounters some disintegrating Force in making its Perihelion passage and recalls the statement of the late prof. Pierce bused upon a Long mathematical investigation that the tenacity of the nucleus of a Comet approaching As close to the Sun As the Comet of 1843 did not equal that of steel else it would be torn to pieces. The present Comet went about As close to the Sun As the one in 184 i and Aee ording to appearances was unable to Bear the Strain. It is now a recognized fact that some meteors at least arid particularly certain ones which appear in periodic showers Are the fragments of comets. In the great Comet which is now exciting so much interest and attracting All eyes to the morning sky should crumble into pieces it is not beyond the Range of possibility that some of our descendants May have in their cabinets Black fire encrusted fragments of this celestial body which is making such a glorious spectacle in til s sky for the have discovered that the Comet now visible in Tho Eastern heavens splits into sections every four Days and that the fragments revolve about a common Center of Gravity alternately closing and separating. The Smithson Hiu , at Wash aug on has received from the Academy of v Enna the announcement of the discovery by Schmidt at Athens on the 8th of october of a Comet four degrees Southeast of the great Comet. Prof. Swift of Rochester says this is unquestionably a fragment of the great Comet broken off at its Perihelion passage. This proves that the Groat Comet must have grazed the Bun and hence passed through the terrible crisis. This is these Ond instance on record where a Comet has Benn disrupted the first one being Biela s Comet of 1840. Bait that could Sot to lost.
