We hold ¡t. to I be an important element iu efficiency for it would be a farue to maintain a * force which Inspired no dread ; bat some- thing moro is necessary.

NEWS AND NOTES. CLXIV. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 23 July 1861

NEWS AND NOTES             BY A SYDNEY MAN. CLXIV. A BRAN new comet has been seen in Eng- land by Mr. Hind. Mr. Scott says it is no relation to ours, which, according to the   latter authority, has really been very un- pleasantly close to us. "On the 20th (says     Mr. Scott) as predicted, the comet crossed the plane of the ecliptic, being about     13,000,000 miles from the line of the earth's   orbit. From the great distance to which   the tail could be traced, it was probably   more than that number of miles in length, and, therefore, it must have actually crossed the line of the earth's orbit. This must have occurred some time after the nucleus crossed the ecliptic, as the tail appeared to curve to   the south of the line joining it with the sun;   consequently, it is not im...
