Ilerschel. 61r John Frederick William Uerschel, Bart,, the mly son of the great astronomer Sir Frederick William H inch el, and himself an astronomsr of celebrity, died this morning In London. He was born March T, 1792, at Slough, near Windsor, and was educated at St. John's College, Cambridge, where fee becamo senior wrangler and Smith's prizeman In 1S13. He devoted hlmsair te the same pursuits as his rather, and his earliest mathematical researchei are con tained In bis reconstruction of Lacrolx's treatise ( --vn i ne .uiiiercBuaiuaicuias," undertaken la con nectlon with Dean Peacock. Sometimes atone and sometimes In connection with South, he devoted a considerable portion of the year 1816 to observations on the multiple stars, for which the Royal Astrono- nomicai society voted to each of them their gold meaai on February 7, 1826. As the first result of their observations, which were tea Miousand In number, he presented to the Royal Society in Lon doa in 1883 a catalogue of three hundred and eighty double and triple stars, whese positions and appa rent dlttances had never until then been tixed. In 1S87 he published a second catalogue of two hun dred and ninety-five stars of this kind; and In 1823 another, in which three hundred and twenty-four more were set down. In 1830 he published Important measurements of twelve hundred and thirty-six Btars which he had made with his twenty foot reflecting telescope ; contributed to the 'Transac tions f the Astronomical Society" a paper which contained the exact measurements or three aun dred and slxty.four stars, and a great number of observations on the measurements of double stars. At the same lime he was occupied with the Investi gation of a number of questions in physics, the re sults of which appeared in his "Treatise on Sound" in the "Encyclopaedia Metropolitana;" a "Treattee on the Theory of Light;" a "Preliminary Discourse in the Study of Natural Philosophy," in Lardner's "Cyclopedia ;" in his "Treatise on Astronomy," forming part of the same series, and in a great number of memoirs, many of which relate to photography, published in the "Transactions of the Royal Society" and else where. The Astronomical Society again voted him their gold medal for his "Catalogue of Nebuue," January 8, 1836. He spent lour years at the Cape of Good Hope in 1884-8, where he examined, under cir cumstances the most favorable, the whole Southern celestial hemisphere, and sgested the idea of making exact meteorological observations on given days, and Blmoltaneously at different pieces. The expedition to the Cape was unricrtakgn at h's own expense. The interest which was felt in Herschel's expedition by the educated classes outside or the circle of astronomers was manifested in the honors showered upon him on his return. A considerable number or the members of the Royal Society offered their suffrages for his election to the presidency of that body, vacant by the resig nation of the Duke of Sussex an honor, however, which he did not seek. In 1833 he was created a baronet; in 1839 an honorary D. C. L. of Oxford ; and in 1842 was elected Lord Rector of Manchal College, Aberdeen. In 1848 the Astronomical Society voted him a testi monial for his work on the Southern Hemisphere, during which year he filled the office of President. In I860 he published his "Outlines of Astronomy," a valuable manual, and la December of that year he was appointed Master or the Mint, which post he resigned in February, 1855. Joseph MrClelland. Joseph McClelland, who was one of the prominent abolitionist of thirty years ago, died recently; in Oalesburg, J 11. lie was born In Philadelphia la 1302 and in his youth be removed to one of the lower townships of Lancaster county, near the Maryland line. When the anti-slavery agitation commenced lie eagerly espoused the cause of the oppressed negroes, and he was subject to much religious as well as political persecution on account of his views. After tne passage of the Fugitive I Slave law in 1S50 he was a member of a committee on resolutions, at a meeting neia in Georgetown, Lancaster county, at which a resolution was passed declaring that the law was unholy, that It should not be obeyed, and that fugitives should be assisted as formerly. Sopn after this a riot occurred iat Christiana, in which Oorsuch, a Maryland 'slaveholder, in pursuit of runaway slaves, was killed, and the committee on resolutions were 'indicted for treason against the United States. This came to nothing, however, and Mr. McClelland was not persecuted further. In 1865 Mr. McClelland re moved to Ohio, where he lived until wlthia a few rears past, when he took up his residence with his son-in-law at Fiiinceton, 111., or with his son at Gales- Lburg. In addition to being an abolitionist Mp. iiccieuana was a warm temperance advocate. : . Peter von Ileus.

Court of Quarter Sessions Judge FinUtter, This mornlnz's session of this Court was taken ub with the trial of Joseph Hoey upon the charge of obtaining goods from Wm. A. Barret by means of false pretenses. The allegation was that he ob tained credit upon the statement that he owned four houses in the city, and bad in his store goods worth 1 3(4)0, which was not true. The defense answered that this was an honest mistake, and was subse quently con ected. On trial. FINANCE AND COMMERCE. EvzHUiO Tblbqbapb OrrtoaU Friday, Ha 12. 1H7L i Notwithstanding the flurry among the specu lators In stocks aud the demand tor call loans, the offerings are largely in excess of the wants of borrowers, and heavy balances are lying idle.

The banks are offering currency on call and time at equal rates, which sufficiently indi cates the view taken of the future status of the market. We quote at 5a'6 per cent, on collate rals and good mercantile paper. Gold IS aall, as Uuai, uu at without a siDgle fluctuation so far.
