ASTRONOMY is a subject which, in spite of the l\ delicate refinement of its observations and the severe technicality of its mathematical processes, yields results which can be fairly apprehended by the general educated public,-results moreover which, though apparently far removed from humanity, yet invariably| arouse a human interest. There was a time when it appeared to be a completed, so to speak, perfected science, in which little of a revolutionary character was to be expected. But modern discoveries in physics have changed all that; and discoveries are yearly being made which are likely to enlarge our ideas about the constitution of the heavens in a striking and revolutionary manner.
