The New Satellite of Saturn.—Anarti
cle in the London Atheiiffium shows, that by a
comparison oft heir respective records, Mr. Bondi
in the United States, and Afr. Lassi.i l, in Eu
rope, discovered the eighth satellite of Saturn so
nearly at the same time that the English ought
to say it was discovered by Bond and Lasscll,Un-
Americans by Lassell and Bond. Air. Bund,
however, it appears, saw it first, being on the
16th of September, hut regarded it as accidental;
while Air. Lassell did not observe it all until the
18th, when he made a “careful diagram.” Mr.
Bond also again saw it on the 18th, hut neither
of them “established the satellite’’ until the 19th
—then it was done simultaneously. Air. Bond
agrees with Air. Lassell in naming it Hy perion,
by which it will accordingly he known. Its pe
riod of revolution, according to the determina
tion of Air. Bond, is about2] days; it is, there
fore, in the order of distances, the seventh from
Saturn. We must say, however, that the “turn
about” courtesy of the Athenspum looks some
what affected, as, under the circumstances, we
feel most irresistibly impelled to award the hon
or of discovery to American science.
The City oe Jalapa. —Gen. Thompson, in
iiis Recollections of Alexico, says, “When the
atmosphere is clear, you may see the shipping in
the harbor ofVera Cruz with an ordinary spy
glass and the whirecaps of the waves with the
naked eye. The elevation of Jalapa above the
sea is a little more than four thousand feet. It
is situated on a shelf of the mountain ; the sum
mit of which, at Perote, a distance in a direct
line ofabout twenty miles, is still four thousand
five hundred feet higher than Jalapa. The whole
horizon, except in the direction ofVera Cruz, is
bounded by mountains ; amongst them Orizaba,
which is distant from Jalapa about twenty-five
miles. But from the remarkable clearness of
the atmosphere, and the sun shining upon the
snow, with which it is always covered, it does
not seem to he five miles. All the tropical fruits
grow there, and are cultivated with great care
and taste. It is not an exaggeration to say that
it is impossible for one who has not been on the
table lands of Alexico to conceive of a climate so
elysiun. There is not a day, and scarcely an
hour in the year when one could say, I wish it
were a little warmer or a little cooler. It is
never warm enough to pull oft' your coat, and
rarely cold enough to button it.
Gen. T. adds . —“No spot on the earth will he
more desirable than this for a residence when
ever it is in the possession of our race, with the
government and laws which they carry with
them wherever they go. The march of time is
not more certain than that this will be, and
probably at no distant day.”
(O’A. leech kept in a phial of water is said to
be an infallible weather-glass. If the weather
continues serene and beautiful, the leech lies
motionless at the bottom of the glass, and rolled
togother in a spiral form. If it rains either be
fore or after noon, it is found to have crept up to
the top of its lodgings, and there it remains till
the weather is settled.

Self-Lamplighter —What will ingenuity
not accomplish next? Here we have an inven
tion, (says the New York Tribune,) by which
lamps or candles may be lighted at any moment
of time by a clock or a pull ufachord. I fattvc li
ed to an alarm clock a light may he produced at
any hour. In cases where people wish to rise
at a certain unusual time of night, all tint has to
be done is to set the clock and make the connec
tion of the lamplighter “all right,” and then,'
wien the hour comes round,you haven tampal
ready lighted at the-saine time. Certainly very
convenient. When not desired to he connected
with a clock, it can he attached to a chord termin
ating in some place near the bed like a bed-pull
so that it is only necessary to pull the chord to
produce a light previous to rising. It is design
ed, also, to he so attached to the bell handle of a ]
front door, that pulling the hell instantly makes
a light to see by in the hall, or any other part of
the house. The inventor is Air. Alexander Ben
nett, of New York.
