1 " 1 - tta mb Iw, Louisville, Gra: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1871. The Comet! The Comet!! Already we see it gazetted that this empyrean Pashaw of the realms of Ju piter, is telegraphed to be approaching and sporting, ss usual, his one or more tails according the rank he holds. He is taking it as leisnrcly and with the same apparent sense of royal dig nity, as the Grand Duke Alexis—with this further coincideuce, that patience will be mauifested with the same confi dence aud hope iu the ultimate arrival of the one as it was for the other. A little delay with such ponderous bodies is not to be wondered at—and we trust no more serious disturbance will ever agitate the quiet relations that now ex ist and have heretofore prevailed be tween Russia and the great North Amer ican Republic —than is likely to origin ate from a collision of any of the Come tary bodies with old mother Earth. We judge it hardly possible for this erratic wanderer of the skies, to be fully visible to tbe naked oye, until some time next year, when according to our Horn-book lessons, wo should have not only one but two contemporaneously— both Enckc’s and Biela’s arriving at their peribelions iu May—provided they bavo encountered no stumbling blocks since tbeir last visits. Tbe first lias a periodic lapse of three years and four months or 1,212 days—tbe other six and three quarter years or 2,401 days. In tbe course of some half dozen revolutions these differences approximate very close ly, and then are again thrown wide asunder. Which of tbo two has been already detected by tbo telescope we have not seen stated, but like old Joint Robinson’B show, the twain will be up to time. FROM ATLANTA Wc copy from tbe Macon Telegraph tbe following dispatch from their corres pondent at Atlanta, relativo to tbo or ganization of the Legislature, &c. Atlanta, Nov.

There will be a caucus of the Demo crat* to-night. There is nothing cer tainly indicating the future policy oi the Legwietare, bat the general idea is that an election bill will be passed ordering election for Governor in thirty days.

Bullock on iiis Travels. —A Washington dispatch to tbe Now York Sun, dated October 30th, says: “Before proceeding to New York, Gov. Bullock tarried in this city long enough to inti mate to a distinguised Pennsylvania Senator that he teas about to wash his hands of Georgia foi ever. In the course of this conversation, Bullock said he bad resigned the Governorship of Geor gia and placed tho same in the bands of the President of the State Senate. Ac cording to the very recent Georgia ad vices, the Governor has not taken this step unadvisedly. The Legislature there is already preparing to impeach him, aud tbe Attorney General has been in structed to institute criminal prosecutions against both Bullock and Kimball for coining large amounts of State bonds without authority of law. The connec tion of this official with tho late sale of tbe State railroad was also being made tbe subject of investigation. In consid eration of this state of affairs, it is said tbe cx-Governor is but exorcising a ne cessary caution in peremptorily resign ing bis high office. ° Baltimore, Nov. 2.—A Mass Meet ing of tbe Democratic Conservative par ty of this city was bold to-night in Mon ument Square, to protest against tbe proceedings in South Carolina, under tbe suspension of tbe writ of habeas cor pus, or, as the call for tbo meeting states, “a grand opening to protest against the war now being waged against liberty and law.” Tbe clubs of the various wards, twenty in number, paraded the streets with torchlights, trausparenoies and bands of music. lion. Reveidy Johnson presided at tbo meeting. Resolutions were passed, and address es delivered by Hon. Rcverdy Johnson, Hon. Wm. Pinkney Whyte, Hon. Joshua Vansant, Mayor elect, aud others.
