The story is true, and ; ?will, I think, on that account bear rep- j etition. A foreigner was oucc traveling : in the north of Mexico. His business took him to a small town in the interior at some distance from the line of rail? way, and consequently to reach Iiis destination he was obliged to proceed on muleback. The traveler arrived late in the afternoon, and as he was wearily plodding his mule up the main strcctof the pueblo whom should he meet but a Mexican gentleman who bad been in? troduced to him in one of the southern cities of the republic.

Both discoverers remarked the similar ity of elements to" those of the comets of 1772, imperfectly observed by Mon taigna at Limoges, and the first comet of 1800. Clausen's calculations showed 4hat the period of revolution between 1772 and 1820 had been about G 2-3 years, tthe comet having escaped observation ?at the intermediate returns, excepting that of 1S0G, when it was seen by 1'ons. Prof. Santim, of Padua, principally oc? cupied himself v^ith the investigation of the motions of thin comet, as did ?more recently the late Prof. Ilubbard, of Washington.
