Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 18 March 1847
We understand that Prnf. Pierce, of Harvard I'niversily, iv paper rend at a special meeting of Ihe American Academy of Arts and Science., held on Tuesday evening, announced us n rlwult of his calculations upon observations made by Wears C. Walker, Esq. of the Washington Observatory, the remarkable fact that the planet known as Leverrier, the discovery- of which at Berlin was j n consequence of the computations of the mathematician whose name it bears, is not tho planet which answers to those computations, nor one which according to I.everrier's theory will account for the perturbations ofCranus — that this it not the planet which wan discocered by the calculations of Leverrier, but another which was accidentally discorded by the Berlin obtscrrrr. The diameter of the orbit of the observed planet is suid to differ from that of the computed planet by several limes the diameter of the orbit of the eailh, and by forty years in tho time of its revolution about il..- sun.

Patient Labor. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 18 March 1847
Patient Labor. There are no short roads to knowledge. To obtuin a full view of a beautiful luttdacupo, we must ascend HON eminence which will command i:n extended horizon. The path which lends up the uscent may be toilsome, rugged, und repulsive; but lo the lover of the beautiful in nature this is but a trivial consideration, and is not accounted sn obstacle. When compared to the end to be attained, the exertion requisite to the nttvinment, sink* into insignificance. So it is with tbe worthy und noble objects and aims of human pursuit. To secure and enjoy them, the mind must cast behind it ail dreams of case, indulgence, and simple gratification, and with a resolute, indomitable purpose, consecrate itself to patient unwearying labor. For suppose, for a moment, that thoso objects which, in the present estimation of mankind,confer eminence and distinction on their possessors, were, by some transforming process, to be rendered attainable without effort and toil, would they not at that ...
Cambridgeport Lyceum. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 18 March 1847
Cambridgeport Lyceum. Tuesday Fvening, March 16. Pursuant to notice, Mr. Henry Hudson lectured on " Sluikspearc." Tho lecturer considered tho peculiar characteristics of iho great Dramatist. We cnnnot do entire justice to llie lecturer without giving n full report, which, for want of time and spuce, ia iitipoeml;lf. Mr. 11. is not of that class of critics who speak without knowledge. He has read much, and thought more. Ho labors under no motive* of interest —under no local prejudices. He does not belong In the Italian school, who fur n long lime thought there was no learning beyond their own mountains, nor to thn French, who once seemed to think that there were no wits or reaioner* but their own. Shakspenre is ours—and still the properly of the world—nnd never more than now has this heenndmilted nnd acted upon.

New Cities.—The idea of changing towns to cities, seem* lo be quite popular, I*o much so, that new cilie* ure springing up very rapidly. Boston, the city of Massachusetts, is surrounded by a circle of cities. There is Salem, and Lowell. Then there are other cities of. more recent date, such as Koxbury and Cambridge. Cliurlestewu and New Bedford have declared in fuvor of a charter, and Lynn is also moving in this mutter. Snch changes serve to develope the talent, the collective wisdom and judgment of towns so changed, since they demand various grades of city officers. Tbe following verse well expresses the innocent and merry laugh of a child : — " 1 love it—l love it—tlie laugh of a child, Now rippling and gentle,now merry and wild; Ringing out on the air willi its innocent gush, Like ibe trill of v bird at the twilight* *ufi bush* Fluating up on the breeze like the tones of a bell, Or the music that dwells in the heart of a shell. O! the laugh of a child, so wild and so free, Is tbe...

MISCELLANY. M. GUIZOT. PRISONS IN SWEDEN. ANECDOTE OF LOUIS XIV. TOUCHING STORY. GOD EVERYWHERE. A LAUGHABLE MISTAKE. A CATECHISM FOR BATCHELORS. The following description of this great man we take from a late number of the N\ Y. Tribune : ** He is small, short, thin nnd pale. The hair that cover* his obstinately shaped head is very scanty, and under his protruding eye ihere is n dark line that seems to betoken a physical weakness. His forehead is retiring, and the whole head would seem to indicate rather tho man of taste Ihnn ronton. In the simple dress of black in whi'h I have always seen him. and with his serious aud sometimes almost sad exp r e*sinn, he looks much n* I have MM many a congregational clergyman of New England, and I venture to say lhat no one, from a first view without knowing ihe man, could possibly suppose him to have almost the ab■olute control of the Government of such a nation m a* France. .
