The First Inauguration. The New York Herald prints a description of the Federal hall, the building before which Washington was first inaugurated President of the United States. Immediately behind the balcony, s|ys the Herald. was the chamber appointed for the sessions of the Senate. It measured forty by thirty feet; the ardies of the ceiling were painted light blue, and all authorities agree in praising the beauty of the mantelpieces, which were of American marble and of very elegant workmanship. The room for the House of Representatives was much larger, and had two galleries for visitors, a speaker's platform surmounted by a crimson canopy and separate desks for all the members. In 1880 Federal hall wus still the most magnificent building in New York. On the balcony just described, Washington appeared 011 the morning of April 30, 1779. His journey to New York from Mount Vernon had been as a triumphal progress. His arrival in the city had been signalized by a general festival.— When...

The Comet Gets Back. •The Pons comet lias behaved so strangely during the past month that nothing can be safely predicted regarding it. On the evening of September 26th it was bright enough to be seen with an ordinary spyglass, and it was reasonable t.) suppose tliat it would ere this have become visible to the naked eye. Instead of brightening, however, as a well-behaved comet should have done, it paled rapidly and could not be found by good telescopes during the moonlight nights of October. In fact it practically disappeared from view altogether until within the past week, during which time it has been seen by Mr. Jackson, through his six-inch reflecting telescope; though previous, ly he, as well as the rest of our local astronomers, had looked for it assiduously, but in vain. It seems, however, to be following the path laid down by the Harvard astrono niers, being found by Mr. Jackson in its calculated place, near Mu Druconis. Some time ago Mr. Garrad. and the writer looked it up...

THIS joint committee from the Legislature of Virginia and Maryland met in Richmond last week as arranged. The result of their conference is published in full in this column. The termination of the discussion was one not unexpected by us, but was evidently a surprise to the Marylanders. The spirit animating the' Maryland joint committee was by no means worthy the honest purpose and fair dealing of that great State. It met its just rebuke at the hands of the Virginia Legislature. Personally, the M.nrylaiiders were received with open arms—but their Unfair and one-sided propositions were speedily consigned to merited death. The ultimatum of the Virginians refused to recognize Maryland as h.wing any right or title in Pocoinoke Sound, "except north and west of the boundary line as established by BLACK and JENKINS."

Tlie Secrets of Success. A man's comfort in life depends very much upon his keeping a little ahead in his money affairs. If jon once fall behind, it may be very difficult to make up the headway which is lost. One who begins with putting aside some part of his earnings, however small, and keeps it up for a number of years, is likely to become rich before lie d»es. On® who inherits property, and goes on year by .war spending a little more than his income, will become poor if he lives long enough. Living beyond their means has brought multitudes of persons to ruin in our generation. It. is the cause of ninetenths of all the. defalcations which have disgraced the age. Bankers and business men in general do not often help themselves to other peo ])le's money until their own funds begin to fail-off, and their expendi tures exceed their receipts.

Do. Do attach as much importance to your mind as to your body. Do be natural; a poor diamond is better than a good Imitation. Do observe; the faculty of observation, well cultivated, makes prnc tical men and women. Do, at least once in a while, reflect; most things, if worth consideration at all, look different upon reflection. Do avoid causes of irritation in your family circle; do reflect that home is the place in which to be rgreeable. ' Do, if u man says he loves you, try to find out what he means by it; a good many men love themselves when they imagine* they are loving yon. ~"~Do; if yon hear a scandalous story, even from your bosom friend, forget it; , try to remember only what is to the credit of others.
