THE PERIODIC COMET D'ARREST.—M. Gustave Leveau publishes in the Astronomischen Nachrichten (No. 3434) a more accurate ephemeris for D'Arrest's comet than has yet appeared. It may be mentioned that the comet has not only been observed by Mr. Perrine at the Lick Observatory, but also at the observatories of Algiers and Toulouse. By employing these observations the following ephemeris has been computed.
