There are some circumstances why the Geranium was placed there which makes the loss more heavy, and which ought to operate on tho mind of the robber and lead him to return that plant at les*t— which net wo hope he will perform —and then resolve to "sin no more."

Exi'ected Return or the Comet OF 1556.—As long since as 1751, Mr. Richard Dunlimine, of Cambridge, on computing the elements of the comet of 1264, found them so similar to those of the comet of 1556, that he was led to the conclusion that the two were identical, and that its return might be expected about 18-18. Subsequent investigations which have been made by different astronomers, confirm this conclusion; and there is, therefore, good reason to look for tho reappearance of this comet during the year 1848, although it would not be surprising if this event should happen even a year earlier or later than this date.—»Si7/im(in's Journal, May.
